According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, CBS Sports might have some interest in Tony Romo. It was previously reported that FOX Sports had some interest in Romo. Now, CBS sports might be in pursuit. At this point, Romo is still a member of the Dallas Cowboys.
You wonder what the future might hold for Romo.
The Bears replaced one turnover prone quarterback for another. According to Ian Rapoport, the Bears are expected to sign Mark Sanchez. At this point, I would think Sanchez would probably be the backup to Mike Glennon, or at least compete for that backup role.
The return of Johnny Manziel could happen sooner than later. According to reports, Manziel had breakfast with Saints’ coach Sean Payton during Super Bowl week. Apparently, a return to football was talked about during this meeting. According to Manziel, he is living a sober life.
First, how could Manziel get a job before Colin Kaepernick? Secondly, I do think the Saints would be a good place for Manziel. He could learn under Drew Brees and Sean Payton. Finally, if Manziel does get a job before Kaepernick, the NFL has some serious explaining to do. Kaepernick has at least done something productive in the NFL. Plus, Kaepernick has stayed out of trouble. On the hand, Manziel has been a mess since coming into the league. Unfortunately for Kaepernick, he is being penalized for speaking up and speaking out. Sadly, he would have been better off getting arrested.
The hypocrisy is real!
Over the past week, there has been some talk about the possible return of former Seahawks’ RB Marshawn Lynch. One team that was reportedly interested was Lynch’s hometown team the Oakland Raiders. Lynch’s agent Doug Hendrickson told KNBR in San Francisco that nothing would surprise him with Lynch:
“He’s one of the most unique guys I’ve ever been with in my life. Marshawn, it wouldn’t shock me in three days if he says, ‘Hey, I want to play.’ It wouldn’t shock me if he says, ‘Nah, I don’t know where this came from. I don’t want to play.”
Also, Hendrickson discussed Lynch’s financial situation:
“He doesn’t spend any of the money he’s made. He’s got a lot of money.”
Hendrickson did add that Lynch misses football.
We’ll see what the future holds for Lynch!
Where in the world is Tom Brady’s jersey? Well, his jersey was found safe in Mexico. Martin Mauricio Ortega, who worked for a Mexican newspaper, allegedly stole the jersey after Super Bowl 51.
Also, the FBI was able to retrieve Brady’s jersey from Super Bowl 49 . Furthermore, they were able to retrieve a helmet that may belong to Broncos’ LB Von Miller from Super Bowl 50. To sum it up, Ortega may have stolen two jerseys and a helmet!
This story is crazy! How was this guy able to steal all this stuff?
The video below is what helped nab the alleged suspect.
Spike Lee believes that the Jets or any other team in the NFL should “Do The Right Thing” and sign free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick, who reportedly will stand for the anthem next season, is a free agent after opting out of his contract with the 49ers. According to Spike Lee, it’s “mad fishy” that the Jets or any other team have not given Kaepernick an opportunity.
There have been reports that teams ‘genuinely hate’ Kaepernick, but the biggest question is whether Kaepernick can still play. He was not that bad with the 49ers last season (2241 yds, 16 tds, 4 ints), but he was not all that good either. Could he help a team like the Jets? Possibly? He has been to a Super Bowl, and he is still fairly young (29). However, the NFL is not like the NBA. In the NFL, it’s all about the shield! Most players just shut up and play. Kaepernick did not do that in 2016.
Overall, I think the questions are more about what he can do on the field, rather than what is going on with him off the field. Now, do I think it’s completely based on performance? I think it would be naïve of me or anybody to think it’s all about performance. However, I believe Kaepernick will get another opportunity. Unfortunately, it might take some time!
According to reports, the Oakland Raiders are thinking about trying to acquire retired RB Marshawn Lynch. Lynch, 30, who retired after the 2015 season, is the property of the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks could either release Lynch and let him negotiate with the Raiders, or the Raiders and Seahawks can work out a trade.
Lynch will be 31 in April; he has not played in over a year. Lynch took a pounding throughout his nine-year career. “Beast Mode” played in only seven games in 2015. If Lynch is interested, and the Raiders can get him at a good price tag, why not give him a chance. For Lynch, who is from Oakland, it would be an opportunity to play in front of his hometown fans.
If I was Lynch, and I don’t know his financial situation, I would stay far away from football. I think his body was telling him enough is enough in 2015, and when your body speaks, you better listen!
Don’t do it Marshawn!!
Following the lead of his former Jets teammate Brandon Marshall, former Jets’ quarterback Geno Smith is expected to sign with the New York Giants. Smith, who was a backup last season with the Jets, is expected to compete for the backup quarterback position behind Eli Manning. According to reports, the deal is contingent upon Smith passing a physical. Smith is coming off a torn ACL in 2016.
If healthy, I think this a good move for the Giants and Smith. For Smith, it gives him an opportunity to work under Manning and prepare for his next starting opportunity; for the Giants, they get a guy who is looking to prove himself, which can be a good thing!
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Eddie Lacy has a 385,000-dollar weight clause in his contract. So, he has an incentive to stay in shape. This clause might be useful because according to Bob McGinn, Lacy weighed in at 267 pounds during one of his free agent visits.
Lacy has a total of 7 weigh-ins. Here’s how it breaks down:
According to reports, Connor Barwin has signed with the Los Angeles Rams for one-year, 6.5 million. Barwin, who was released by the Eagles this off season, is coming off a five sack season in Philadelphia.
