Washington immediately looking into cheerleader report
The New York Times published a report this week concerning a trip to Costa Rica taken by the Washington cheerleaders in 2013.
Linebacker: Dont’a Hightower had his 2017 season cut short by a torn pectoral. Kyle Van Noy often struggled after signing an extension in September. Marquis Flowers was re-signed, but he’s not a real starting option. Versatility, depth and playmaking upside are all lacking at this position; it’s something Belichick will address now that he has his hands more on the defense without Patricia.
Quarterback: Before Garoppolo was moved, so was Jacoby Brissett. Behind Brady, there is only Brian Hoyer. With Brady turning 41 in August, the team needs to add a developmental prospect somewhere in the draft.
Garoppolo signed in February and Cousins in March, so the three highest-paid quarterback deals in history have all come this offseason.
And Ryan’s stay as the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history won’t last long. Now that market value has been set for elite quarterbacks, the Packers are likely to re-up Aaron Rodgers for a deal even more lucrative than Ryan’s.
And then someone will come along and get more than Rodgers.
This is life in the NFL. As the salary cap goes up every year, so do contracts.
As recently as June of last summer, Andrew Luck was the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history at $24.5 million per year. Now he’s seventh.
In a few years? Ryan – if he’s still playing and still on this contract – will be one of the lower-paid quarterbacks in the league.
That’s the NFL quarterback salary circle of life.
He’s mostly known for his two decades in the Bills’ front office, rising through the organization as Ralph Wilson’s trusted steward. Brandon served as general manager, CEO and de facto owner upon Wilson’s death.
