After nearly three months of mystery regarding his intentions, capped by recent public comments suggesting he’s not nearly as all in for football as he needs to be, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski suddenly has renewed his football vows. So what prompted it?
Peter King of SI.com has a very intriguing theory. The Patriots needed to know what Gronkowski plans to do before the draft, since they may have to draft his replacement if they don’t know what he’s doing. That part was fairly obvious; here’s where Peter goes next level (and I think directly to the heart of the matter): If Gronkowski hadn’t given a commitment to playing in 2018, coach Bill Belichick quite possibly would have traded Gronk before or during the draft.
Before the second-year quarterback took the field for the first time in front of Pat Shurmur, the first-year head coach made it clear that Webb’s future with the Giants 鈥?and the decision to draft a quarterback with the second overall pick in Thursday’s NFL draft 鈥?won’t be affected by how he performs at this week’s three-day minicamp.
Youth Trae Waynes Jersey There has been a lot that has been made of this is like his tryout. Well, I don’t think so, Shurmur said Tuesday. I don’t think there needs to be any anxiety on his part 鈥?get trained up, come on out here, let it rip, and mistakes happen in practice and you learn from them.
He’s committed, he’s a great teammate, he’s got juice, he holds people accountable, he holds himself accountable. I love Jacoby, Ballard said, via Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star. Jacby Brissett is going to play in this league a long time. If I learned anything last year, it was the value of a backup quarterback who can get it done, and I think Jacoby can do that.
Tyler Toffoli Womens Jersey Brissett still has two years left on his rookie contract, at salaries of $735,000 this year and $890,000 next Womens Orleans Darkwa Jersey year. Those are bargain prices, which makes it easy for the Colts to stay committed to Brissett as the backup, and not have to worry about what they’ll do if Luck gets hurt again.
For Callaway, it’s another huge red flag.
Callaway was suspended all of last season as part of an investigation into felony credit card fraud. He also was cited for marijuana possession in May 2017, stopped by police while riding in a car with a career criminal, and was part of a Title IX investigation in 2016 that centered on an alleged sexual battery. He testified during that case he was high on marijuana during the incident and was later found not responsible for the alleged misconduct.
