The Falcons announced Monday that Jones won’t be attending their upcoming mandatory minicamp. While this isn’t a call to battle stations, the ship has moved to yellow alert.
Jones will be a Falcon in 2018 (most likely). The two sides will work out a new deal (most likely).
But when a player starts missing mandatory parts of the schedule, that isn’t good.
It isn’t catastrophic by any means. But it means that Jones, who league sources have told me wants to be highest-paid receiver in football, feels a contract resolution isn’t close enough for him to attend camp.
Most league sources I speak to think Earl Thomas and the Seahawks will indeed work out a new deal.
I’m skeptical because the Seahawks are cleaning house, having jettisoned veterans like Richard Sherman and Michael Bennett this offseason. They see Thomas as part of that group.
I had never seen this video of Brett Favre speaking with Jon Gruden. It’s amazing.
If you want to take a glimpse inside the mind of one of the best ever to play quarterback, watch it.
Right down to the moment when he says he wanted to switch from a run call to a pass play but didn’t want to tell the coach, it’s vintage Favre.
Said Seahawks CB Shaquill Griffin, It’s actually easy being left handed to cope with moving to the other side. Now it gives me a chance to take on that number one spot and continue to push everybody else. That’s what I’m working on most this year. I want to gain everybody’s trust, so they know they can count on me.
When the Ravens got a hat on a hat, Collins was one of the most talented runners last season. If he can do more as a pass-catcher than he has so far, he may develop into one of the better all-around backs in the league.
Along with free-agent safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, White helped completely revamp the Bills’ secondary in 2017. Buffalo’s defense had a defensive passing efficiency of 78.8, the fifth-best mark in the league.
