Are the Philadelphia Eagles the NFL team to watch after adding Pro Bowl cornerback James Bradberry to their offseason reload? Are the Cleveland Browns better off keeping Baker Mayfield in case Deshaun Watson is suspended for sexual misconduct?
On WISE Sports Radio, we cover those topics along with Drew Brees’s job search, the Carolina Panthers ranking DFL in ESPN’s NFL power rankings, roastmaster Tom Brady, and the Buffalo Bills doing what they can to help their community after last week’s mass shooting.
The NFL offseason is charging toward the annual player selection meeting (also known as the NFL Draft). But until then, Deshaun Watson’s sexual misconduct allegations will continue to be a topic.
On this week’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we discuss what a Texas judge says Watson must do next. The Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints make an intriguing trade of draft picks. The Buffalo Bills extend their relationship with wide receiver Stefon Diggs. And some baseball talk involving the Atlanta Braves gets snuck in there at the end.
Urban Meyer taking the Jacksonville Jaguars job was always a head-scratcher when major programs like Texas and USC figured to have openings. So when USC fired coach Clay Helton this week, it was natural to speculate that Meyer — who’s been enormously successful at Utah, Florida, and Ohio State — would be a good fit in Los Angeles. But he just took the Jaguars job!
On our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss whether Meyer really could bolt for the Trojans. Other topics include the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive line issues, the Buffalo Bills’ disappointing Week 1 loss to the Steelers, the Philadelphia Eagles’ surprising win, and Taylor Heinicke’s debut as quarterback for the Washington Football Team.
Many NFL teams will go into the 2021 season with new quarterbacks under center. It’s probably not a surprise that one of them is the Houston Texans, who are starting Tyrod Taylor because of the nearly two dozen lawsuits Deshaun Watson faces alleging sexual assault and misconduct.
For our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we also discuss the San Francisco 49ers not announcing their starter, though Jimmy Garoppolo seems pretty happy with the decision. Why was Denver Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb arrested? And is Patrick Mahomes the easy choice for NFL Most Valuable Player or are there any other viable candidates?
The big news in the NFL this week was the New England Patriots cutting quarterback Cam Newton. That drew national headlines, but it’s also of local interest since Newton played nine seasons with the Carolina Panthers.
On our WISE Sports Radio football segment, we discuss whether or not Newton’s refusal to get vaccinated motivated his release and where he could possibly end up next. Also on the board, rumors of Deshaun Watson getting traded to the Miami Dolphins, and the playoff chances for the Las Vegas Raiders.
