May you find someone who misses you the way Aaron Rodgers missed Randall Cobb. This week, the Green Bay Packers tried to make their quarterback happy by bringing back one of his favorite receivers and veteran leaders.
We discussed that and more on this week’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, including Lamar Jackson testing positive for COVID-19 (again), Sean Payton’s annoyance with Michael Thomas, Cole Beasley’s continued vaccine defiance, and Kelvin Benjamin’s bad break-up with the New York Giants.
Thursdays on WISE Sports Radio, we usually talk football. But we began this segment responding to Gerrit Cole’s long, bizarre answer to being asked if he uses Spider Tack to get a better grip on a baseball. The longer he talked, the guiltier he looked.
When we got to football, we discussed former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel passing away this week, Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers teammates supporting him, Deshaun Watson saying he wants to be traded to the Denver Broncos, and Jared Goff liking his new coaches with the Detroit Lions.
NFL teams are going through their respective mini-camps (or “Organized Team Activities”) now, which provides a few storylines to cover for our WISE Sports Radio football segment.
The Julio Jones trade drama may be nearing a resolution, while the Green Bay Packers may be preparing for life without Aaron Rodgers. Mac Jones might be further along than the New England Patriots expected, the Carolina Panthers moving a playmaker, and the disturbing practice of race-norming.
Fortunately for our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, there’s hardly an offseason when it comes to topics worth discussing. So Pat Ryan, Charlie Metcalf, and I had some fun.
The New England Patriots’ “Spygate” scandal is in the news again, thanks to an in-depth report by ESPN.com’s Seth Wickersham and Don Van Natta Jr. (The involvement of some guy named Trump added some heat.) Aaron Rodgers is enjoying his best life in Hawaii while the Green Bay Packers are having minicamp. And which teams want Julio Jones, now that his trade demand went public?
Aaron Rodgers’ feud with the Green Bay Packers has hijacked the NFL offseason. So naturally, we had to talk about him on our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment. Is Rodgers serious about wanting to play for another team? Would the Packers really trade the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player?
We also discussed the fallout from the 2021 NFL Draft. Which teams improved themselves? Which teams fell short of expectations? The Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills got a bit more spotlight, ceding to the favorite teams of me and co-host Mike Gore.
