NFL training camps are about to open, so we’re getting in a football segment before The WISE Guys radio show goes on a two-week break while Pat Ryan takes a vacation. (We’ll still do our regular baseball update next Monday.)
When we return, we’ll get to talk about more on-field, actual football stuff. Until then, however, much of the offseason chatter still concerns Deshaun Watson’s pending suspension for sexual misconduct allegations and Jimmy Garoppolo trade rumors. We also cover the Buccaneers finding a replacement for Rob Gronkowski and sad news on former Steelers receiver Charles Johnson.
After a week off for the July 4 holiday, we’re back on WISE Sports Radio with some NFL and movie talk mixed in with our usual baseball chatter.
The Carolina Panthers get Baker Mayfield after waiting until the Cleveland Browns couldn’t wait to trade him any longer. Are the Baltimore Orioles on the rise? Which players were snubbed from the 2022 Major League Baseball All-Star Game rosters? And a quick review of Thor: Love and Thunder. (Longer version here, if interested.)
Deshaun Watson has been facing trouble for quite a while with 24 civil lawsuits (20 now settled) and a likely season-long suspension from the NFL. But his former team, the Houston Texans, might still have to answer for enabling the sexual misconduct allegations resulting from his “massages.”
On WISE Sports Radio, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss the Texans getting sued, Baker Mayfield saying he and the Cleveland Browns have moved on, and Washington Commanders receiver Terry McLaurin getting a top-10 salary for his position.
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 has slowed down a bit as the Draft approaches. That gave us the opportunity to catch up on a couple of stories during our WISE Sports Radio football segment: Namely, the shocking death of Dwayne Haskins and Brian Flores’ racial discrimination lawsuit against the NFL.
Pat Ryan, Charlie Metcalf, and I also discussed what appears to be a fiercely competitive AFC West division, Baker Mayfield’s trade interest, and what the Carolina Panthers might do in the upcoming NFL Draft.
