Terrance Knighton retires

Terrance Knighton has decided to retire, and go into coaching according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The 30-year old Knighton played 8 season in the NFL. “Pot Roast,” was signed by the Patriots last off-season; Knighton was ultimately released in August.

Knighton played for Jaguars, Broncos,  and Redskins.

Enjoy retirement!

49ers looking to trade the number 2 pick?

According to 49ers’ GM John Lynch, San Francisco might be interested in moving the number two pick in the NFL Draft. Lynch addressed the media today. The 49ers, who were 2-14 last season, need a lot of help. The defense needs help, and they need a quarterback.

This was not a very talented team last season.

John Lynch, you are on the clock!

Tony Romo got game?

Maybe Tony Romo could have saved the Mavericks’ season. Romo is all suited up and ready to sit on the bench.

Here is Romo in warm-ups:

49ers’ RB Carlos Hyde: ‘I’ve seen some quarterbacks who got signed that, in my opinion, Kap is way better than’

Colin Kaepernick has received a lot of support from players around the NFL. Today, his former 49er teammates came to his defense.

“He’s proven that he can play at this level, but he made a choice that has some backlash,” said 49ers’ LB NaVorro Bowman.

“I’ve seen some quarterbacks who got signed that, in my opinion, Kap is way better than,” Hyde said. “But I’m not a GM. I’m not a head coach. So that’s out of my league,” said 49ers’ RB Carlos Hyde.

With Tony Romo now retired, you would think Houston and maybe even the Browns would have a level of interest.  As I said from the beginning, it will happen for Kaepernick, but just not sure when.

Texas A&M star Myles Garrett on sacking Tom Brady: ‘He is supposed to be the GOAT, so I want to take him down’

Former Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett is expected to go number one(Browns) in the 2017 NFL Draft. Garrett had a great career at Texas A&M, a great combine, and pro day.  Now, he is setting his sights on Tom Brady. When asked by ESPN THE MAGAZINE which quarterback he is looking forward to sacking, Garrett had this to say:

“Tom Brady. He is supposed to be the GOAT, so I want to take him down, show him the best can still get humbled sometimes. Also because I’m a Peyton Manning fan.”

If Garrett becomes the player that many think he could be, he should get a sack or two on Brady at some point.

Former Cowboys’ safety Barry Church on Tony Romo: ‘He looked like he had a lot of juice left in the tank’

Earlier this week, former Cowboys’ QB Tony Romo called it quits, and headed to the CBS broadcast booth. One of Romo’s former teammates Barry Church was shocked that Romo retired:

“I was going against him in practice every single day this year because he was on the scout team after he got back from injury,” Church told TMZ Sports. ‘The guy was ripping the ball left and right. He looked like he had a lot of juice left in the tank. For him to make that call to go to CBS, I was really, really shocked.”

Church, who signed with the Jaguars this off-season, believes there is a 60% chance that Romo could make a return.

“He’s a competitive dude, I see him just going after it one more time, but we’ll see what happens.”

 

 

 

Lynch visiting the Raiders

Marshawn Lynch might be coming back after all. According to Pat McAfee, Lynch, 30, was at the Raiders’ practice facility today talking about a possible return.  At this point, Lynch is property of the Seahawks, so that part has to be figured out.

All signs point to a Lynch return!

Is Tony Romo a Hall of Famer?

Tony Romo will head off to the broadcast booth after 14 seasons in the NFL. Romo will join CBS Sports as a game analyst.

What is Romo’s legacy? He had a lot of good moments, but not enough great moments. He is 21st in touchdown passes(248) in NFL history. He is the Cowboys’ all-time leader in touchdown passes, QB rating and yards; all those numbers are better than Hall of Famers and former Cowboy greats Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach.  He had 30-game winning drives, which is better than Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Terry Bradshaw, Dan Fouts, Ken Stabler, Kurt Warner, Aikman and Staubach to name a few. However, most people only remember the failures; dropping the snap against the Seahawks, interception against the Giants in the playoffs (2007 season), and so much more.  Romo falls short because of his playoff failures. He is 2-4 in the playoffs. In the end, Romo did not win enough when it mattered the most!

If Romo could have found a way to win one Super Bowl, maybe he would have a case.

The Verdict: Romo makes “The Hall of Good.”
