    Cedrick Benson Dies in Motorcycle crash !!

    It's usually players you never heard of who were in the league for a year or less. This actually shocked me a bit since I remember Benson being part of the BIG 3 with Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown.
  2. There had been talk in Steeler country that Brown might have some brain damage because this behavior has only begun happening in the last few years or so.
  3. Could you imagine being a fan who bought tickets for the Week 12 game against Seattle and the team winds up sitting Wentz and other players after playing a huge game against the Pats? I'd be pissed.
  4. https://theathletic.com/1064123/2019/07/05/josh-jacobs-is-the-only-unsigned-raiders-draft-pick-is-this-headed-to-a-holdout/ Another good reason the Eagles shouldn't have drafted him. Although the Eagles have a front office that wouldn't let it get this far.
  5. Found this on NBC Sports: https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/raiders/josh-jacobs-last-unsigned-raiders-pick-doesnt-want-talk-contract
  6. Yep, but you know at least one agent will find some sort of loophole. It says there is a "hangup regarding the payment schedule of his signing bonus." Sounds like JJ wants it sooner than what is in the rules.

    RIP Battleship Lorenzen

    He was truly one of a kind. I've never seen a quarterback that big and probably never will. Not to mention his ability to gain yards with his legs. He was nimble for a guy his size.

    Over rated Head Coaches ?

    I was going to add McVay only because it seems the NFL loves him. Now he's the main reason NFL teams are trying to find that next young innovator of offense.

    Daks Agent wants $34m per year

    A lot of money is going to be tied up between Prescott, Elliot and Cooper. Plus add in Lawrence's $65 million in guarantees.

    Is Tyreek Hill's career over?

    I don't know why, but all this stuff reminds me of when Reid and his wife were going through all that bull-ish with his druggie son.

    Seahawks and Wilson agree to mega contract

    Wilson: Two Super Bowl appearances back to back and one win. Wentz: NOTHING!!!!! Where on Earth are people coming up with the idea Wentz should even come close to these guys in extensions.
  12. Your comment is arguable. Prescott is worth more than Wentz easily. He won rookie of the year and has taken the Cowboys to the playoffs twice already. Wentz shouldn't be making more than Prescott on a yearly basis. He hasn't done anything to deserve it......yet. Don't let Cowboy hate cloud your judgement. Prescott doesn't have Wentz's talent, but he's done much more.
  13. Yes they did. I liked Moose Johnston to.

    How much are NFL contracts really worth

    Supposedly he has earned $129 million "so far." Not bad for being in 83 total games in 8 years. https://www.forbes.com/sites/cartoonoftheday/2018/03/18/sam-bradford-has-earned-129-million-over-his-underwhelming-career-so-far/#7fda39e551a8

    How much are NFL contracts really worth

    I'll still never understand these ridiculous contracts baseball players get. I'm not saying baseball is an easy sport, but you hit a ball with a bat and stand around in a field for $30-40 million a year. Plus you play in nice weather and get to sit when it rains. A starting football player is putting his livelihood and his body on the line 16 games (more with playoffs) a year and gets paid a fraction of what a baseball player makes. Concussions, broken bones, and (God forbid) an injury that paralyzes a player for the rest of his life. Not to mention sub-zero weather, snow, rain, or temps that reach over 100 degrees on the field. Former players are still feeling the symptoms brought on by being an NFL player (RIP Andre Waters). Peter King wrote an article saying anything after two years on a football contract is window dressing. And @Bored is right. The only leverage a player has is to sit and boycott the game. The signing bonus seems to be the only thing that is worth it's weight once an NFL player and a team agree to a deal.

    DALLASS.....

    Saw Dallas signed Randall Cobb. If it were 5 years ago, I would care more. But he hasn't been the same since his ACL injury.

    Ryan Tannehill traded to Tennessee.

    Most reports have the Fins tanking in hopes they land Tagovailoa or Herbert next year. Some go as far as the team pulling Fitz if they wind up winning TOO much.

    Giants agree to trade WR Odell Beckham Jr to Browns

    I'm pleasantly surprised that this went down. At least it gets him out of the NFC.

    Antonio Brown Saga

    Well Owens is his mentor. And he is a Rosenhaus client.

    DALLASS.....

    I never watched any of the ESPN games, but I heard they are all pretty bad announcers. Sometimes you get a Tony Romo, who is almost flawless and makes the game more interesting. But then you get a dud who knows a lot about football, but can't translate it to the booth. Witten will be like Gates if he does go back to Dallas. A touchdown here and there, but nothing game changing.

    Robert Kraft Arrested....

    At first I thought they meant he was part of the ring itself, which would have been a better story. All he did was what 1000's of men do everyday. Just that their names aren't linked with the most popular sports franchise in history.

    Antonio Brown Saga

    It's amazing that the Steelers have only had 2 head coaches since Chuck Knoll (Cowher and Tomlin). I don't see that trend ending anytime soon. Especially since they haven't had a losing record under Tomlin since he took over in 2007. I do think they need new blood, but it's not the team's MO to dump a guy that quick.

    Antonio Brown Saga

    James Washington looked good at times last year. Wouldn't shock me if he got the 2nd receiver spot. Seems the Steelers always do well once their top guy moves on.

    Rams chances of contending in 2019

    Like I've heard, Belichick changed up the defense once Goff's helmet mic turned off, so he didn't have McVay in his ear on what defense was set initially set up. If it's that easy, Goff is going to be in for a world of hurt.
