The odds of getting picked seven times out of 11 with a weekly probability of 15% = .00275%
There's a certain amount that are mandatory for everyone, and it's also out there that he exaggerated the #. It's obviously extremely unlucky, but anyone who thinks there is more to it.. well, think what you want.
Chargers just got some extra fire in their hearts for this weekend
There aren't really any words for losing a child. Hopefully Mebane can find some form of peace/comfort during an absolutely dreadful time.
I'll put it this way, the NFL's track record of honesty does not leave me with a lot of willingness to just take their word for it.
NFL would take really big risk with the collusion case still out there, if it was planned. too big risk in my opinion. league office doesn't have much integrity but i don't think they are that stupid.
this is more of a 'how does the nfl work' type question, but i noticed that the steelers would have a 21+millions cap hit if they trade brown, is there any way a team trading for him could re-negotiate his deal as part of the trade so as to avoid that cap hit? I guess the same could be said for joe flacco and his 16 millions in dead money if he is cut or traded....is there no way around this for the steelers and or ravens? not a fan of either team, but still wanted to know how NFL contracts work better
Years from now we're going to wonder how did Pittsburgh not manage to win another Super Bowl with Bell, Brown and Roethlisberger.
If they are serious about moving or even cutting Brown, then boot Roethlisberger to the curb as well. Make it a clean break as he deserves some blame. Same goes for Tomlin but he seems safe as well.
Nothing will change in regards to ownership so it's not even worthy mentioning their part.
I don't think so since the deals were signed previously. but thats off the top of my head.
No, there's no way to avoid that cap hit if they're trading him. The easiest way to describe it is that signing bonuses are often paid early in the contract but teams are allowed to spread out the cap hit for the signing bonus over multiple years. If you end up trading/releasing the player during the contract, you need to pay back the difference. The receiving team would be responsible for future bonuses such as annual roster bonuses or things that are paid out after the trade.
I guess if you're a hockey fan, it has some similarities to the recapture penalty teams could face when players retire early.. though obviously used in different situations. And unlike the NHL, no loopholes for equipment allergies.
On the Steelers side, don't listen to any mainstream media who think the cap hit will hinder a trade. They are fine for cap space and Roethlisberger's extension/restructure will help them out even more.
Kittle also had the advantage of always playing from behind so he benefited greatly from game flow.
Chiefs would shut down the offence and focus on killing the clock a lot. Kittle did most of his damage while his team was playing catch up.
Colts have a flag outside Lucas Oil with 1-0 on it....
I'm not shocked given that this same team also has this banner
Todd Marinovich is facing what's haunted him
This is heartbreaking.
Lets do this!!!
I know there are a few 49ers fans here, so what's the fair deal for Brown?
2019 2nd and 2020 2nd?
I would do that in a heartbeat
Cam may not play next season.
Arians says AB is too much of a diva.
What a crock of **** this post is. Guessing you missed him putting up 210 yards on Denver in the first half. You know why he didn't put up more in the 2nd half? Because Denver switched their defense up to double him, blitz the qb and play single on everyone else, so he spent the entire half blocking. Which he also did better than Kelce.
Kittle was the only offensive player opponents had to game plan for when they played the 49ers. Teams playing Kansas City had to plan for Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Watkins opening up the middle, and even Kareem Hunt for most of it.
Put Kelce in San Francisco this year and he doesn't put up what Kittle did.
Their motto this season was to win the game that week (aka 1-0). It had nothing to do with beating Houston. Try to keep up.
If that was the ask, the Raiders would dip into their bucket of 1st's and beat that.
Why the hell would Raiders give away future for a soon to be 31 yr old WR who is forcing his way out of Pittsburgh by being a locker room/coaching headache?
