The NFL is finalizing a proposal to make significant changes to the kickoff, intensifying the tweaks of recent years in what might be a final attempt to salvage the most dangerous play in football.
The adjustments prompted largely by a group of special teams coaches who traveled to a Wednesday meeting at league headquarters are designed to make the kickoff much more of a punt play, according to competition committee chairman Rich McKay. The kickoff will remain on a short leash, according to committee member and Green Bay Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy, but it appears to have survived for at least another year.
John Dorsey hasn’t been afraid to wheel and deal with his new Cleveland Browns roster this offseason, and that certainly didn’t change with the end of the NFL draft over the weekend.
The general manager dealt tight end Randall Telfer on Tuesday to the Chiefs for linebacker Dadi Nicolas, Kansas City announced.
Tom Brady isn’t old for a regular person, but he’s certainly old for a football player. Brady played last season at 40 years old, making him the oldest offensive player in football by about a year and a half. He’ll be 41 for the entirety of next season, and of course, will again be the league’s oldest offensive player. But he also says that he’s not nearly done playing. Brady has mused before that he wants to play until he’s 45, which would give him five more seasons.
Because of that, he wants to make sure that he spends more time with them during the offseason. This year, that includes skipping Patriots OTAs in order to go on a trip with Cheap Flag Football Jerseys the family. Instead of working out at OTAs, he’ll just work out wherever he happens to be. (And apparently, in Cheap Embroidered NFL Jerseys whatever shorts happen to be lying around.)
Since Peyton Manning retired in 2016, the Broncos have harbored a QB quandary. The first year it was Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Mark Sanchez splitting offseason snaps. In 2017, the question was whether Siemian or Lynch would win the starting job.
