All you need to do to get the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback’s autograph is to make a $50 donation to the YWCA of Lubbock. Sounds easy enough. With the autograph, you also get a photo op and maybe even a handshake.
(You’ll have to test your luck with the handshake.)
It’s always great to see Mahomes back in town, especially when his appearances can generate some money for the YWCA of Lubbock.
“He’ll never be there by the time we pick in round three, so we might have to pick him at 54. Then we realized he likely wouldn’t be there at 54,” Veach said, via Josh Norris of Rotoworld.
Innovation within its offensive schemes, in particular. The thing about football is that most innovation flows upward from the high schools to college and then to the NFL. You’re now seeing that in the NFL right now. As Chiefs coach Andy Reid once noted, the NFL is about 5-7 years behind college football. Now it’s catching up and the explosive offenses in the NFL are displaying many of those college concepts.
Oh, shoot, didn’t even mention Trey Burton. Love this pickup. The Hype Train of Burton being the next Travis Kelce has already left the station. It’s rolling along. It’s one of those things where it’s so widespread, it almost worries me, because everyone says it. Even those fantasy guys who don’t watch the games and just look at the numbers are on board. Still, I won’t let them deter me. I’ll just grab a Goose Island from the drink cart and keep to myself.
Around the league
The NFL held its annual mid-summer supplemental draft Wednesday with two players selected, the most since 2010.
New York Giants: Sam Beal, CB, Western Michigan, third round.
Washington Redskins: Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech, sixth round.
The Bills running back hired Atlanta defense attorney Don Samuel on Wednesday, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported.
”We have spoken to LeSean and have been in contact with the National Football League,” the Bills said in a statement. “We will continue to gather information.”
McCoy was in Miami on Tuesday morning training in preparation for the upcoming season, Garafolo added.
On the night that changed Brandon Bryant’s life forever — and threatened to derail his NFL dream — the clock read 1:14 a.m. when he felt his phone buzz.
This was early December of 2015, and Bryant was lying in bed, resting up before one of his finals following a killer redshirt freshman season at safety for Mississippi State. He turned over, saw it was his brother, and ignored it.
He’ll understand, Bryant thought to himself. It’s late and I need my rest. Big day tomorrow.
For the past six years I have watched almost every NFL game and, aside from a few pre-draft projects, zero college football games. This is partly because covering the NFL is my job, but mostly because I enjoy pro football infinitely more than college. To me, comparing college to pro is like comparing a small town community theatre to Broadway.
“He’s doing things right. It’s a bump in the road,” Moss said. “Man, just continue to fight. It happens. What he did was wrong... there was a woman involved, so, I’m not going to get into all that. What he did was wrong. He knows he was wrong. I think it’s up for him as a man to understand what he did wrong, live and learn from it and let it go.”
“If I had to pick right now? It’s pretty early,” Romo said when asked by NFL Network’s Lindsay Rhodes who he saw meeting in Super Bowl LIII. “Thing about the NFL is things change pretty fast. Injuries happen, a lot of stuff happens, but, um... if I was picking right now, I’d probably go with Green Bay versus Jacksonville. That would be a tentative, rough guess here in the summer months.”
1) Philadelphia Eagles defensive line: Should we throw in the offensive line, as well? The Eagles dominated in the trenches en route to the Super Bowl LII title, pushing teams around on offense and sending waves of pass rushers on defense. While reigning Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald of the Rams is the cream of the crop, Philadelphia’s earth-moving Fletcher Cox isn’t far behind among interior linemen.
After covering football at Sports Illustrated for 29 years, Peter King announced in May that he was leaving the venerated magazine to work full-time for NBC.
With Baltimore Ravens rookies reporting for duty on Wednesday, NFL summer is winding down and training camp is on the horizon.
To get ready for this season’s edition of Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cleveland Browns, the fine folks at HBO dropped a teaser trailer this week.
In case you missed it at Arrowhead Pride
With the current state of secondary depth on the Kansas City Chiefs roster heading into 2018 training camp, we figured general manager Brett Veach may dip into the supplemental draft to acquire either Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal or West Virginia cornerback Adonis Alexander.
The Chiefs didn’t acquire either player.
