The Cleveland Browns suddenly have a formidable defensive line, adding Jadeveon Clowney to a corps that already included Myles Garrett and Sheldon Richardson. Add Takk McKinley and the Browns could put opposing quarterbacks on notice. That led off our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment for the week.
Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I also discussed quarterback Justin Fields and which teams might be interested in drafting the Ohio State star. Would the Carolina Panthers take him after making a deal for Sam Darnold last week? And how many players will skip offseason workouts because of the NFL’s current apathy toward COVID protocols?
Football! The NFL keeps chugging along until any kind of COVID-19 regulations stop them from doing so. Thursday night, the league will announce its 2020 regular season schedule.
In the meantime, for Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I talked about Brett Favre’s shady $1 million payday, Jadeveon Clowney still looking for a team, and the NFL’s first phase in reopening team facilities. Oh, and we start with some baseball talk on whether or not MLB players will approve the rumored plan for playing its 2020 season.
For those of us in sports media, the NFL is thankfully still making some news that isn’t someone contracting COVID-19 or wondering when a postponed season will resume. (Although football is facing those questions now…)
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I wonder if Antonio Brown is angling for a gig with the Baltimore Ravens, why no team has signed defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and whether or not Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and his recovering hip will be the second quarterback selected in the NFL Draft.
