- JJ Watt Done for the year with a Torn Pec.
- Redskins want to trade Josh Norman and Trent Williams (Finally). I think they will have trouble dumping Norman and it will be interesting to see what they can get for Williams this late in the trading season. Rumor is that the Buc's are also willing to part with OJ Howard for a 1st rounder as well.
- Leonard Williams was traded from the Jets to the Giants for a 3rd and a 5th that goes to a 4th if the Giants resign Williams at the end of the year. Williams is expected to get $10 million in free agency next year so he'd get the Giants a 3rd round compensatory selection if he walks. This is the first ever trade between the Giants and Jets so it is historic.
- Teams are trying to get Hopkins from the Texans but it will cost.
- Kenyan Drake is now a Cardinal. The Dolphins also traded the hot dog vendor in section 32 to the Packers for a parking attendant to be named later.
- I would expect to see a trade or two coming out of the Bengals and Broncos in the next 24 hours as both teams look towards the draft to solve their problems.
- MNF Mic'D Up Segment Is In Trouble: Both the Steelers and the Dolphins declined to participate in ESPN’s Monday Night Football “Mic’d Up” segment this week after a controversy last week when Jets quarterback Sam Darnold wore a microphone and was shown saying he was “seeing ghosts” in an ugly loss to the Patriots. “The ‘Monday Night Mic’d’ segment won’t be part of the Dolphins-Steelers game. We approached both teams but they declined. We are already pursuing options for next week’s game,” ESPN said in a statement to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal. ESPN still plans to have players “Mic’d Up” in the future, just as long as they can find players who are willing to do it. Jets coach Adam Gase said after last week’s game that he’ll be hesitant to allow the Jets to participate in the future, and the Steelers and Dolphins may be showing that other teams figure there’s nothing to gain from it.
- Bears will stick with Mitch T, so expect another L.
- And Bill Belichick has walked back his comments about not coaching into his 70s, so the league has that to look forward to. Bill is currently 67.
