2018-19 NFL news and notes
« on: August 02, 2018, 07:05:14 pm »
The preseason kicks off tonight in Canton, Ohio, and there's going to be a lot of intrigue this year.  If you have a story from the NFL, post it here.  Of course, please be respectful of others.
Know y'all been patiently waiting
I know you need me, I can feel it
I'm a beast, I'm an animal
I'm that monster in the mirror
The headliner, finisher
I'm the closer, winner
Best when under pressure
With seconds left I show up
If you really want more, scream it out louder

What I pictured when I saw this news was Scrooge McDuck diving into his money pool.  According to Josina Anderson, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. agreed to a five-year contract extension worth a maximum of $95 million with $65 million guaranteed.

Well... fuck my life!  According to Adam Schefter, the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers agreed to a record-breaking four-year, $134 million extension with nearly $103 million guaranteed.

This isn't good news to me.  According to Adam Schefter, the Raiders and the Bears have an agreement in place to trade defensive end Khalil Mack to Chicago.

UPDATE:  That’s a ton of cash!  According to Schefter, the Bears and Mack agreed to a record-setting six-year, $141 million extension with $90 million guaranteed.

Actually, it could be great for all involved, except fans of the teams. Because the Raiders are going to be worse this season, and unless they hit with those extra picks, they're going to be worse for it down the road as well. And as for the Bears, they might get a bump now, but they just dealt away two first round picks for a position that only kinda sorta moves the needle. It's not quite as bad as if they'd traded for a running back or something, but if Trubisky doesn't pan out at quarterback, then all the pass rushing in the world isn't going to elevate them much past .500.

Paxton Lynch is officially done in Denver.  Best for all involved really, I don't know if Lynch has what it takes mentally, but the atmosphere was so bad that he wasn't ever going to put things together with the Broncos.

I guess this means that Tim Tebow remains the most successful 1st round QB the Broncos have ever drafted.  Clearly their best bet is to let the Colts draft QBs for them. ;D
Oh my god, I actually updated this.

1.  Add ATM
2.  Add more ATM
3.  ???
4.  Profit

Well, on the plus side, the Browns have garuanteed they won't finish 0-16 again this year...

After two seasons of waiting, the Colts got Luck back...and lost to the Bengals.

Cowboys have only 6 points, the Bucs shocked the Saints and the Steelers couldn't even beat the Browns. I know just week 1 but already sensing some worry in some fandoms....

Once more, never count out the Packers as long as Rodgers has time on the clock, an amazing comeback given he was out by injury in the first half.

In what may be the ultimate "only the Bills" story ever, Vontae Davis walked out at halftime of their loss to the Chargers, then posted he was quitting the NFL altogether.

I know the Pats love to give out second chances, but this is a HUGE gamble.  According to Adam Schefter, the Patriots agreed to acquire wide receiver Josh Gordon from the Browns.
