Matt Millen, a well-known figure to football fans for his decades as a player, broadcaster and former General Manager of the Lions, is dealing with a rare and serious illness.
Despite some receiving flexibility, Charles Sims drew little interest in free agency and so he’s back on a small one-year prove-it deal.
It’ll be hard to prove anything with second-round rookie Ronald Jones and undrafted 2016 breakout contributor Peyton Barber getting most of his reps.
The rest of this draft was nondescript, though Kevin Pamphile has toggled between the top of the bench and bottom of the starting lineup.
But on Tuesday, Severino made Boston look like every other opponent .
Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie said before the draft that he and Gruden are on the same page about what kinds of players they want to draft. That’s good for McKenzie, because if the two of them couldn’t agree, it would be Gruden who would make the call.
The simple reality of the Raiders is that they have a new coach who negotiated a 10-year, $100 million contract directly with the owner. That means the coach is the person in the building with the most authority. And he’ll have the authority to put together a personnel staff as he sees fit.
Since getting released on April 13, Bryant’s been seriously linked to only one team, the Baltimore Ravens. According to ex-ESPN reporter Ed Werder, Bryant actually rejected a multi-year offer from the Ravens because he wants to play under a one-year deal, which would give him a chance to hit free agency at the beginning of next offseason. The Ravens then went out and signed Willie Snead away from the Ravens, thus ending their pursuit of Bryant.
Charleston billionaire Ben Navarro has reached out to two-time Super Bowl winner Peyton Manning about joining his ownership group that is bidding on the Carolina Panthers, according to two sources with knowledge of the discussions.
