There was a sea of waiver releases and contract renegotiations as the NFL Free Agency deadline approached this week. A time for teams to make more room in their salary caps and making adjustments. One free agent that is ready for this is Steelers OLB Bud Dupree. Dupree tore his ACL last December against the Ravens.
His teammate, QB Ben Roethlisburger, stated he was ready as well after restructuring his contract. Washington Football Team released their QB Alex Smith after leading them to a playoff game. Smith, recovered from last season’s debilitating broken leg injury and was named Comeback Player of The Year. In New York, the Giants released former Seahawks great WR Golden Tate making room for more potential players for the salary cap. “There isn’t a safety net for players anymore stated the Captain, with all of the short-term contracts being offered. Ask Punter Thomas Morstead who spent twelve seasons with the Saints after his release. However, some players come back to their original teams to retire. Such as Panthers LB Thomas Davis who signed as one-year deal to retire as a Panther after fourteen seasons.
Trade rumors of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has a strained relationship with his Head Coach Pete Carroll. Wilson had listed four teams that he would like to play for causing a firestorm in the Seattle. After rumors that Wilson may inquire of the Raiders, General Manager Mike Mayock endorsed keeping starting QB David Carr. Mayock stated he was one of the top quarterbacks in the league. What is not a rumor is the trading of All-Pro LB JJ Watt who found a home on the Arizona Cardinals roster. Arizona now is granting WR Larry Fitzgerald, after seventeen seasons, some space to decide his career intentions at this point.
Who would have thought you can become you could earn millions saving football cards? That is what happened when Tom Brady’s rookie card was sold. “I have John Elway’s rookie card,” noted the Captain, I better have it encased in plastic. As the trade deadline approaches there hasn’t been a decision of the franchise-tagging of Cowboys QB Dak Prescott. Prescott has to be scratching his head trying to figure out why that hasn’t happened yet. After four seasons of leading his team to the playoffs, it remains a mystery. His teammates Ezekiel Elliot, Jalen Smith, and Amari Cooper have all received their contract demands. NFL talk show host Steven A. Smith, who has been the biggest critic of the Cowboys, is somewhat advocating for Prescott now with drawing questions.
Attorney for the family of the five-year-old girl that was struck by the vehicle of Kansas City Chiefs Assistant Coach Britt Reid is now seeking charges. Particularly after discovering the five-year old may have permanent brain-damage. Attorney Tom Porto stated, “We are going to advocate the most serious charges and the most serious sentence.”
Speaking of charges Broncos All-Pro LB Von Miller has been officially discharged of any criminal charges from the District Attorney’s Office of the City of Parker, Colorado. Broncos new General Manager Mike Paton stated he would like to still see Miller as a Bronco this upcoming season. In addition, the Broncos have placed the franchise tag on Safety Justin Simmons. Simmons has been a stable factor in the secondary not missing a single game due to injury.
As the league begins to change its hiring policy offering incentive to teams to hire minority coaches, it took a step forward. Maia Chaka will become the first black female for on the field officiating.
