A tall and limber edge rusher, he can get around the corner fast because of his explosiveness and flexibility. How well he’d stand up against the run and setting the edge would be a concern as would the medicals. But he’s as explosive off the ball as any other defender in the draft according to experts.Chicago Bears Face masks


Brady apparently came dangerously close to landing in Louisiana instead of Florida. All it would have taken was Drew Brees’ retirement.

During this transitional period, the league is also likely to see a disconnect between its star players and iconic teams. The league has a new crop of quarterback stars, but they play in markets like Kansas City, Buffalo, and Baltimore. In contrast, for many of the league’s iconic franchises like the Steelers, Cowboys, Patriots, Giants, and Bears, the quarterback situation is uncertain or soon to become uncertain.


He is set to turn 35 this July and may even opt for retirement. The Cowboys need someone younger and more durable who can be the next version of Lee for the defense.New England Patriots Face masks

However, with the Seahawks salary cap nowhere near where it needs to be and other areas of the team needing improvement, it is most likely that Carson might get paid what he is worth somewhere else.

Smith and Atallah say that the vast majority of union money paid to Brees was strictly for Players Inc. duties at the height of his celebrity and earning power. Atallah said Smith doesn't steer Players Inc. money to star players, saying the union has "zero discretion" on how much star players can earn for endorsements and marketing opportunities. And in fact, Smith says, Brees ranked 12th among NFL players in total Players Inc. payments, trailing the total sums earned over the past decade to stars such as Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Tony Romo, usually paid to limited liability corporations connected to the players. Citing confidentiality, the union declined to break down the payments to Brees or any other player, but Atallah calls any suggestion of impropriety "dangerously false." Smith and Atallah say the payments are listed appropriately and prepared by the union's finance department in conjunction with its external auditors. They say that the union has had clean audits for the entirety of Smith's tenure and that they "have never been approached to correct or even clarify any of our filings" with the Department of Labor. "Being a union president or executive committee [member] is a volunteer position," Smith explains. "You get $0 payment, no salary, no stipend. ... So Drew Brees, when he was on the executive committee, happened to be at the height of his marketing powers. ... And therefore his combined equal-share payment, licensing, royalty and appearances fees were in the top 20 in the NFL. .... I mean, it literally is that simple."Washington Football Team Face masks

“I think in the NFL rarely are there any absolutes, rarely is everything black and white,” Schefter said. “But I can tell you that today, even though there are all these limited partners putting pressure on him and even though there are a lot of people that want him to sell and even though there are a host of issues, unless the NFL steps in and forces him to sell that franchise, which could happen, he’s not going to voluntarily step up and sell that team. I feel very comfortable in saying that.”Kansas City Chiefs Face masks
