Cornerback Richard Sherman spent the last seven seasons with the Seahawks, but his only appearance in Seattle this season will come as a member of their NFC West rivals from Northern California.
I’d be surprised if Bryant is taken. He’s more of an athlete than a football player to begin with, and had serious discipline issues both on and off the field. We’ll have more on these three soon.
And in case you don’t know, here’s how the supplemental draft works: If a team drafts a player, it surrenders the supplemental pick it used in the next year’s college draft. So if a team picks, say, Beal in the fourth round, their fourth-rounder next year is gone. The last time multiple guys were picked in a supplemental draft was 2010 (Harvey Unga, Bears; Josh Brent, Cowboys). A total of three guys have been selected in the eight years since. Those three: Terrelle Pryor in 2011, Josh Gordon in 2012 and Isaiah Battle in 2015.
Annual Official Clinic (July 12-15): It’s a big one on the calendar for the referees, always, but more so this year with the new helmet rule going into place. There’s some gray area out there in what will separate a 15-yarder from an ejection.
I mean, I think it’s time to move on for everybody, Rodgers told Peter King in the debut of Football Morning in America, regarding the hit from Barr that busted Rodgers’ collarbone.
It previously wasn’t over because Rodgers wasn’t pleased with Barr’s reaction in the immediate aftermath of the hit. As Rodgers told Conan O’Brien last year, I looked over at [Barr] as I walked off the field. Cameras caught me saying something to him but what they missed was him [giving me the] finger [and the] ‘suck it’ sign.
I had looked over just to see if maybe there was gonna be a thumbs up, or hey you okay? Rodgers told King. Or whatever. It’s a league where you appreciate what we put our bodies through. I thought . . . knowing that I wouldn’t be on the ground unless it was a significant injury then maybe he’d be looking over, giving me a thumbs-up-you-okay? Or something. But it wasn’t the case. We had some words exchanged on both sides.
