“We did release Roy and we’re going to move on from that,” said Chiefs coach Andy Reid, declining to elaborate. “I can’t really talk about anything from a legal standpoint, so I’m gonna just leave it at that.”
Did the Chiefs, who love to use multi-tight end sets, think about making a move on Bennett? To hear coach Andy Reid tell it, they did.
“We looked at that as a potential (move),” Reid said. “(But) he’s in a good place. It worked out good for him.”
ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported before the Giants’ home game against the Rams on Nov. 5, which LA won 51-17, that a couple of Giants players said that coach Ben McAdoo had “lost the team.”
“I would say this last week (against the Rams), even after the game, a lot of guys were like at their wit’s end,” one player told Anderson. “You could tell even on the sidelines. I just got the vibe; you can tell when the team has quit, and it just felt like we did. It felt like nobody wanted to be there, and the whole week (McAdoo) didn’t give us the day off last week (after players returned from the team’s bye). Guys were a little upset about that — even though we did get a bye week — so the morale was kind of shaky.”
“When I walked into my first owners meeting, I looked to my left and saw [Kansas City Chiefs owner] Lamar Hunt,” Jones said in August. “I looked to my right and saw [Cincinnati Bengals owner] Paul Brown. These were guys who bucked back. The NFL wouldn’t give Lamar a franchise, so he went out and started a whole other league [in the AFL] and forced his way in. Paul Brown basically got his [Cleveland Browns] franchise taken away from him – a franchise that was named for him – so he goes down south a few hundred miles and helps found the Cincinnati Bengals. These were people that looked at their situation and when it was called for, they made changes.”
Clayborn became the fourth player in NFL history to finish a game with six sacks. The list includes Thomas, who had six against the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 6, 1998.
“Pee Wee coaches helping me out telling the right things and leading me in the right direction and my older brother, he just helped me out too a bunch. Just giving me advice when he was playing football and stuff like that,” said Hunt.
“I just like having fun with the kids and being able to teach them some of the things I know and I went through as a kid, some things I wish I’d have known before,” Hunt said. “A lot of people helped me out.”
