Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

James gave up rugby due to injury. Basketball is only the second choice. How strong is James' real rugby level?

James used to be a wide receiver for the high school team. In his second year of high school (four years in high school in the United States), he was selected to Ohio's best team first team. In fact, it has proved that James has the potential to become a professional football wide receiver for the NFL.

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

The Falcons have received calls for Julio Jones.. A team like NE should be all over that

Rumored the Ravens have Villaneuva on speed dial and will sign him once the draft is over so it doesnt count against their comps.

Larry Fitzgerald still looking for a home, latest rumor is reuniting with Arians in TB.

That's just insane if Tom gets Larry Fitzgerald too,

This thing with Aaron Rodgers seems to be going off the rails.

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

I don't get veterans doing this. Don't they have to buy out all of the stock of their old jerseys?

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens have signed two-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva to a two-year deal Tuesday, it was announced.

The deal is for $14 million and includes $8 million that is fully guaranteed, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...al-source-says

With the NFL adopting the Chiefs’ proposal to allow a much wider swath of players to wear single-digit numbers, any player that tries to change his number may end up writing a check for something more than a sum in the single digits.

Recently, the league reiterated to PFT the policy regarding number changes by players. If a player requests a change for the upcoming year and there is existing inventory of unsold jerseys with his current number on them, the player must purchase the unsold jerseys before the change happens. (At wholesale cost, not retail — presumably.) If the player declines to do so, they can remain in the number and change the following year, at no cost.

baltimoreskin ... looks like it. wow

It is a jerk move to your fans. If you're changing teams like Patrick Peterson...do whatever you want. If you're an established player, a star player with fans who have bought your merchandise, you're screwing them over.

NFL memo reminds everyone that Broncos don't owe injured Ja'Wuan James $10M

Denver Broncos right tackle Ja'Wuan James suffered an Achilles tear on Tuesday, a devastating blow for an athlete in his prime.

Making matters considerably worse, James might be out $10 million because of the injury. He suffered the tear while working out away from team facilities, a detail that allows the Broncos to void his otherwise fully guaranteed contract.

https://www.yahoo.com/sports/nfl-sen...225103869.html

James ... you played the game wrong. If you get injured in the offseason, you need to hide it until about 2 mins into team sanctioned workouts .. then lay down and point to knee.

Cooley years ago said this happens every year. Guy injured during offseason, hides it, waits for 1st day of practice and goes down early.

Thats why we always see a handful of "injuries" on day 1.

Pretty hard to hide an Achilles tear. He'd struggle to walk let alone hide it until camp starts. To fix it for his own health, let alone his playing career, he'd have to get surgery ASAP. No way he'd be able to hide that.

Agreed. Maybe a shoulder or something but not an achilles. Does he crawl from his car to the locker room to the field on day one?
I mean for ten million dollars ill try to walk around the block with my nutz in a vice but it probably aint happening.
