The NFL keeps plugging along like it might be the only professional sport played this year. (Though Major League Baseball might get there.) Coming out of last week’s NFL Draft, there are plenty of player moves making news.
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback situations after they used high draft selections on new QBs. And we look at where Andy Dalton might land after being released by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Up until Thursday’s NFL Draft, the big story in pro football this week is the reunion of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (And Gronk came out of retirement!) How much fun will they have now that they’re no longer playing for grumpy Bill Belichick?
But the Draft is the NFL’s main attraction, maybe one of the last “real” sporting events we’ll have until the fall. (That is, if football is even played this coming season.) Will the Dolphins be able to trade up to No. 1 and get LSU quarterback Joe Burrow? Who will the Carolina Panthers take at No. 7? Will the Patriots get their Tom Brady replacement?
First off, for anyone interested, I’ve had issues trying to record my past two radio appearances. Last Thursday, a power outage meant I couldn’t use my computer. And on Monday, another audio track from a video played while I was recording, rendering about one-third of the segment unlistenable.
But I got it right for Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment! Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss how next week’s NFL Draft is being affected by the COVID-19 shutdown, if Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert could be selected before Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, and actor Brian Dennehy.
(Apologies for the audio feed dropping out a couple of times while I was recording. Probably had too much stuff going on on my computer.)
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.
