titans shopping isaiah wilson
After a tweet-and-delete from Tennessee Titans first-round pick Isaiah Wilson surfaced, saying he was done playing football with the team, the Titans are trying to trade Wilson, or at least exploring what they could possibly get in return for him.
Due to his troubling 2020 season, it's crazy to think that Tennessee will get much for him in return. But, I guess it's better to get some scraps for a first-rounder, rather than nothing.
I could see a situation where TEN gets a conditional pick if he stays on a roster for the entirety of the season, or x amount of games.
KJ Wright doesn't think russell wilson is leaving seattle
The internet exploded yesterday with stories and rumors of QB Russell Wilson wanting to get as far away from the Seattle Seahawks as humanly possible. Among those extreme rumors, there were also mild sprinkles of "he's not leaving," here and there. Linebacker KJ Wright is among the latter, insisting that Wilson isn't leaving.
Deandre hopkins is still talking about his trade
... And I don't blame him one bit. Everyone has been pointing and laughing at the Houston Texans for a while now, but none other than former wide receiver, and the product of the most bone-headed trade of all time, DeAndre Hopkins. I'll let this tweet speak for itself.
julian edelman unsure about his status for 2021
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was limited to just six games last season, due to a lingering knee injury that never really seemed to improve. Apparently not much has changed. He wants to play, but his knee may stop him from doing so. It's only February, so that cannot be a good sign.
KJ Wright won't take a discount to stay in seattle
The Seattle Seahawks have a decision to make with linebacker KJ Wright. Pay him, let him "test" free agency, or let him walk altogether? Wright told Jim Rome that he wouldn't hate staying in Seattle but also will not be taking a discount.
My guess is he'll test free agency and end up taking the best offer -- whether the Seahawks are willing to give him, that is up to them.
Mike Tomlin says his symptoms of covid-19 are 'minimal'
Reports out of Pittsburgh on Monday stated that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was one of a group of staffers sent home from the team's facilities last week due to positive tests. Tomlin tested positive for COVID-19 but remains in good spirits, with "minimal symptoms."
isaiah wilson tweets and deletes that he's 'done as a titan'
First-round draft pick Isaiah Wilson may no longer be with the Tennessee Titans if we believe a tweet he sent late Monday night. The Titans definitely have a decision to make on him, but he may have made that decision for them?
Wilson basically didn't play his entire rookie season, but he still had an eventful one. He was arrested for DUI, suspended, put on the COVID-19 list twice, and ended his season on the NFI list. As of now, Wilson doesn't seem like playing football for the Titans is his top priority, but I'll wait for confirmation from the team on this one.
shailene woodley confirms engagement to aaron rodgers
File this one under "Non-Football But Still Offseason News." Actress Shailene Woodley confirmed her engagement with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to Jimmy Fallon. We all knew it, but the most intriguing element about this conversation is that she literally does not care that he plays football.
I know this, but this is a good reminder that athletes are more than just athletes... they also like to host Jeopardy.
nick bosa confirms he'll be better next season
San Francisco 49ers edge rusher Nick Bosa tore his ACL in Week Two of last season and was one of several injuries on that team. If there is any good thing to come from a brutal injury so early on in the season, it's that there's ample time to prepare for the next one. Bosa confirms that he'll be back, and he'll be better.
Bosa also tore his ACL in high school.
chris godwin talks about free agency
One of this offseason's most notable players eligible for free agency is Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin. Not only did he win a Super Bowl, but he seemed to be in sync with QB Tom Brady almost all season. Godwin discussed free agency here, acknowledging his want to stay with the team he just won with and the need to get a paycheck.
indy scored first
We all expected the Buffalo Bills to be the ones to come out swinging first, but the Indianapolis Colts were the first to get on the scoreboard with a field goal.
Josh Allen answers by doing josh allen things
A highlight for the ages: Bills quarterback Josh Allen looked like he was going to take off, then glanced at tight end Dawson Knox all alone in the end zone and tossed the ball in a play that you'll see circulated for a while.
Bills up at the half, thanks to Josh allen
The Colts have been pretty much dominating the game thus far, but Buffalo is the one with the upper hand after the first half. Allen has been marching down the field, and ending a methodical drive with a rushing touchdown to take the lead.
bills win first playoff game since 1995
The first postseason game was a wild one. The Bills sent Indianapolis home with a 27-24 win. Allen had quite a nice day, throwing over 300 yards and leading the team in rushing yards. Colts QB Philip Rivers goes home, perhaps forever?
jared goff in for rams as john wolford hurts neck
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is in the game after expecting not to play due to a broken thumb. Starter John Wolford exited the game early after a hard hit. He has since been taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation from a neck injury.
dk metcalf scores 51-yard touchdown
For some reason, the Seattle Seahawks are on the struggle bus, when it really should be the Rams given their situation(s). Wide receiver DK Metcalf came to play, however, scoring a 51-yarder, cutting their lead 13-10.
rams are ahead at halftime
Even with losing their starting quarterback and having to play with an injured Goff, the Rams are up on Seattle at halftime, 20-10. One of the main reasons is rookie running back Cam Akers, who is making plays in his playoff debut.
Akers finished the first half with over 100 yards rushing and a touchdown.
seahawks fumble punt, rams score off it
It hasn't exactly been the Seahawks' best day. Returner DJ Reed fumbled, resulting in Rams' ball. And Los Angeles naturally turned it into a touchdown.
rams beat seahawks, badly
The Rams defense came out swinging on Saturday, even with the loss of star Aaron Donald. Los Angeles completely took Seahawks QB Russell Wilson out of the game, pulling out a 30-20 victory, and an advancement to next week. I'll wait until we see the availability of the players though. It looks... bleak.
bucs get on the board first with a field goal
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got on the scoreboard first against the Washington Football Team with a field goal on their opening drive. More importantly, Washington's defense was able to knock Bucs QB Tom Brady down more than once.
bucs leading at half after two brady touchdowns
Brady is playing like Brady in the playoffs (and yelling at people too). He's thrown two touchdowns already, one to Chris Godwin and one to Antonio Brown.
allow me to introduce taylor Heinicke
If you laughed at the fact that Washington was starting QB Taylor Heinicke (we all did, don't lie), here is your introduction:
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson looked like the latest player to go out with a severe injury last night, appearing to hurt his ankle. Turns out it was a knee sprain, and it wasn't as bad as it looked.
Video of Carson's injury went around the Twitterverse, sparking debates on whether Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill committed a dirty hit. Looked like it to me, tbh.
Carson will have an MRI today to determine the severity of the injury, but this is the best-case scenario for Seattle.
Defensive tackle Damon Harrison is visiting the Seattle Seahawks next week, hoping to land a spot after contemplating retirement.
This is a classic case of, "I'm gonna say I'm gonna retire until a contending team says they want to sign me," and I applaud it.
Of the teams interested, Seattle is the one I would pick if I wanted to win a Super Bowl before retirement. The Seahawks are also dealing with plenty of injuries on the defensive line, so it's a win-win situation here.
The New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks play each other this Sunday, probably my favorite game this week. When asked about said game, head coach Bill Belichick had nothing but good things to say about his opposing quarterback Russell Wilson, including that he's "underrated."
I'm not sure if it's just me or what, but something like this (something pleasant) coming out of Belichick's mouth always catches me off guard. Of course, Belichick is hardly ever wrong, as well.
Wilson has won two out of three matchups with the Patriots -- the one loss being in the Super Bowl.
While reports were swirling not too long ago that the Seattle Seahawks had some interest in free agent Jadeveon Clowney, it seems they have turned their attention to two other free agents -- Clay Matthews and Everson Griffen.
While still no one really knows what the heck is up with Clowney, this makes the most sense for Seattle. I'd personally like to see Matthews there -- he can still continue to play at a high level when healthy. Seattle is clearly looking to bolster its defense -- they recently traded for safety Jamal Adams, and Matthews can do a good job without breaking the bank.
Matthews most recently played for the Los Angeles Rams, before becoming a free agent this spring.
That was quick. After being cut in July, defensive end Branden Jackson is being re-signed by the Seattle Seahawks.
The oldest trick in the book is the ol' cut-and-re-sign-for-cheap trick. Look for Jackson to sign a cheaper, more team-friendly deal. Seattle saved just over $2 million against the cap with his release.
Jadeveon Clowney has been a free agent since March, still hasn't signed anywhere, and it looks like we're going to find out where he will sign by process of elimination. The latest team to scrap Clowney plans -- the New York Jets.
After being traded from the Seattle Seahawks, safety Bradley Mcdougald said he'd love to see Clowney on his new team. However, that doesn't seem to be in the plans as of right now.
This year has been tough for all free agents, especially those coming off an injury, but it's getting down to the wire here for Clowney.
Perfect spot for him to land right now, in my opinion is the Tennessee Titans. Worry about Vic Beasley later, sign Clowney now.
