Cleveland you are on the clock, but maybe not for long. Myles Garrett did his thing at the NFL combine. He ran the 40 in 4.64, had 33 reps of 225 and unofficially a 41 inch vertical. Those type of numbers will probably make him the number one pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Here are some reaction:
A report surfaced yesterday about a possible three team deal between the 49ers, Redskins and Cowboys. The deal would send Romo to the Redskins; Cousins to the 49ers, and the Cowboys would get draft picks. Speaking from the NFL combine, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones denied that such discussions had taken place:
“Nothing factual in any way. I haven’t had that discussion with anyone most of all Romo. Any of these things that you might see that represents interest or looks like it would be fit or those kind of things all of those have no basis at this point.”
According to Jones, the first time he heard about the three team trade was today.
Do you believe Jerry?
After not getting a lot of playing time with the Jets in 2015, Jeremy Kerley wanted to go to a team that would give him a chance to play. He got that chance last season with the 49ers, and now he is staying. According to reports, Kerley and the 49ers agreed to a deal that will pay him 10.5 million over three years.
Kerley put up solid numbers for the 49ers(64 catches, 667 yards, 3 tds) in 2016. He had a career high in receptions, and tied his career high in touchdowns.
Former Washington WR John Ross III ran the fastest 40 ever at the NFL Combine. Officially, Ross ran 4.22, which beats the mark set by Chris Johnson who ran 4.24
Here are some reaction:
Three way trades don’t happen in the NFL. According to Ian Rapoport, it could be possible. In a trade, the 49ers would get Kirk Cousins. The Redskins would get Tony Romo, and the Cowboys get draft picks.
This would be a blockbuster deal! All the teams would benefit in my opinion. The Cowboys get assets for Romo; the 49ers and Redskins get an upgrade at the quarterback position. It is a risk for the Redskins because Romo is 36(37 in April), and has had injury issues. If healthy, short term, Romo is an upgrade over Cousins. Another question is whether the Cowboys would be willing to trade within their division. If the price is right, anything is possible. Remember Donovan McNabb to the Redskins? That trade worked out well for the Eagles, not so well for the Redskins.
Le’Veon Bell got an album on the way. Bell’s album Post Interview will drop on March 10th.
Hopefully the lyrics are not too edgy; there is a parental advisory sticker on the album. I would tell Le’Veon to get your money first, and then drop the album. In the end, maybe Le’Veon spits hot fire!
First Revis, now Brandon Marshall will be released by the Jets according to reports. Apparently it was at Marshall’s request. The Jets don’t have a quarterback, so in reality they are kind of rebuilding.
According to an ESPN report, Colin Kaepernick will be standing during the national anthem next season. Kaepernick, who kneeled during national anthem for all 16 games, is expected to opt out of his contract with the 49ers.
Call me cynical, but I believe this is a byproduct of Kaepernick trying to prove to other teams that he is not going to be a distraction. How much has truly changed since he started taking a knee? Maybe a little, but definitely not enough.
The New York Jets have announced that they will be releasing CB Darelle Revis. He was scheduled to make 13 million in 2017. Not a good few weeks for Revis. First, the arrest and four felony charges, and now this. He may not be the shut down corner that he once was, but he does not stink either. A guy with his skill set and ability will find a job.
The Redskins will slap the franchise tag on Kirk Cousins again! This time it is an exclusive tag, which means that Cousins can’t negotiate with anybody else. The Redskins have until July 15 to make a deal with Cousins. Redskins will pay Cousins $23.94 million under the tag.
Kirk Cousins is good, but you can find better. I would not give him a long term deal if I am the Redskins. He is in between a game changer and a game manager. Good enough to take you to the playoffs, but not good enough to win a title. No matter what happens Cousins has 23.94 million reasons to be happy!
