Sean McDermott on QBs: We have a plan and have to stick with it
Bills General Manager Brandon Beane said after the draft that quarterback Josh Allen has a lot of catching up to do, but didn’t rule out the prospect that he could progress quickly enough to start games early in his rookie season.
In a recent visit to the #PFTPM podcast, former NFL V.P. of officiating Mike Pereira explained that Goodell’s reaction to the NBA’s Tim Donaghy scandal was to be grateful it didn’t happen to the NFL, but to move forward as if it did. The NFL and its teams should take the same approach in response to the Colangelo situation.
Awuzie said he has no preference.
The Cowboys didn’t address the free safety position this offseason — at least not yet — so Awuzie and Byron Jones are Plan B options if the current options don’t work out. Jones started at free safety last season but was moved to cornerback this offseason.
Even in non-militant Green Bay (where no player sat or knelt last season following the week of Trump’s son of a bitch remarks), players are concerned about the way this came together.
You can’t fine somebody for a peaceful protest, Packers wide receiver Davante Adams said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. We’re not out here holding signs, saying we don’t care about the troops or we don’t care about our country or whatever. It’s a peaceful protest, and it’s something as simple as people just expressing themselves and how they wanted to do it. It brought light to the situation, but at the same time, it’s headed in a negative direction with people getting in trouble for it now.
The league should’ve just stayed in their place where they were before and allowed people to do whatever it was that they were doing.
