The Legion of Boom, he lobbies, would not be dead.
We’d be back in business!
There’s also a good chance Seattle’s selections come and go. A good chance Round 1 bleeds to 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 with all 32 NFL teams unwilling to invest a premium pick in him. What if general managers agree with their contingents’ spamming of Griffin’s mentions? That he is a wasted pick? This league is rarely accused of thinking outside the box, often stagnant in archaic logic.
Beckham has said he wants to be the highest-paid receiver in NFL history, which would command a salary in excess of $17 million per year. He is on the books for 2018 for a salary of $8.45 million after the Giants picked up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract.
As for a possible Beckham holdout, he has not participated in offseason workouts in a few years and this report that he will not take the field without a new contract did not specify if that means the spring, training camp, preseason games or regular-season games.
Yeah, I can read, Dave Gettleman told The Post, when asked about the supposed Beckham warning. I got nothing to say.
Gettleman then added he will actually have something to say Tuesday when he meets with the media.
He goes to the whip, Belichick does, and Brady doesn’t go to the whip. When asked what might have been the last straw, Curran points to a specific moment. I think it was the drafting of Jimmy Garoppolo, Curran said. I really think so.
When that happened and Bill Belichick, on the night of the draft said, ‘we all understand Tom’s age and contract situation.’ That was ringing the alarm that Tom is on borrowed time, this is his successor. And what that did was, it lit an immense fire under Brady who was already a tremendous player and said, ‘you know what? F that. It’s not going to happen, it’s not going to happen on my watch. What happened to Drew Bledsoe because he fell asleep at the switch and had a family and went through a bunch of offensive coordinators and got a litle bit lax about the job, that’s not going to happen with me. Over my dead, friggin’ body.’ Curran and Florio go on to discuss multiple aspects of the situation, including the idea that Brady could retire before the 2018 season begins as a way to stick it to Belichick one final time or trying to outlast his head coach.
Sunday was also the Nationals’ annual Black Heritage Day, and pregame ceremonies also included Lt. Gen. Leslie Smith, the inspector general of the U.S. Army, and members of the Mamie Johnson Little League and the Jackie Robinson Foundation and students from Howard University.
Attendance was announced at 25,462, but there appeared to be less than half that number in the stands. The gametime temperature was 52 degrees with strong wind and intermittent rain.
