The NFL Draft is finally here! In the hours leading up to pro football’s annual player selection meeting, there are still plenty of trade rumors. Anybody moving up? Who’s moving down? And everyone wants to know what the San Francisco 49ers will do with the No. 3 overall selection.
We also love talking about Tim Tebow on WISE Sports Radio, so news that he worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars and his former college coach Urban Meyer to perhaps catch on as a tight end is news that definitely intrigued us. Probably better for him to get back to football than trying baseball.
Urban Meyer coming out of retirement, leaving a comfortable TV gig with Fox Sports, to coach the Jacksonville Jaguars? According to reports, it’s virtually a done deal. Can Meyer work the same magic he did at Ohio State and Florida? With the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, 11 selections overall, and $100 million in salary cap space, he has an opportunity to remake the Jags in his vision.
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Chris Smith, and I discuss Meyer’s move, coaches the New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles are considering, and go over the four NFL Divisional Round playoff games this weekend.
First WISE Sports Radio appearance of 2020! And it’s a NFL Thursday with plenty to talk about on coaching searches and Wild Card Playoff weekend, so that’s fun.
Former Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera is now the head guy for the Washington Redskins. Will his authority extend into the front office? Why is Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones taking so long to fire coach Jason Garrett? And we make picks for this weekend’s four playoff games.
Going into an exciting Week 16 on the NFL schedule, the Jacksonville Jaguars got a head start on their offseason by firing Tom Coughlin, the team’s vice president of football operations. Coughlin is a legendary coach in Jacksonville and may be a Hall of Famer for two Super Bowl championships with the New York Giants, but he was a terrible executive in his second tour with the Jags.
For Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I also discuss Josh Gordon being suspended yet again for violating the league’s drug policy, Odell Beckham Jr. saying he wants to stay with the Cleveland Browns, and a very important Cowboys-Eagles game that could determine a playoff bid.
Colin Kaepernick has been the big story in the NFL during the past couple of days, leading into Week 11 of the season. The controversial quarterback who’s been blackballed from the NFL because of his activism on social issues is getting a chance to show what he still has in a workout this weekend.
Other Week 11 NFL topics discussed with Pat Ryan and Mike Gore on WISE Sports Radio include Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri and his increasingly diminishing skills, Thursday Night Football’s matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, Deshaun Watson vs. Lamar Jackson, and the return of Nick Foles to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
