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?
Quarterback Deshaun Watson is facing bigger problems than whether or not the Houston Texans will trade him. And the many sexual assault and harassment allegations against him are now costing him endorsements.
On Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discussed Watson, reaction over the Carolina Panthers trading for quarterback Sam Darnold, and the latest NFL Draft rumors.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (handily) won Super Bowl LV and the 2020-21 NFL season has finished. But we still had plenty to talk about on our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment.
Why have the Houston Texans seemingly put their team operation in the hands of an underqualified former team chaplain? Are the Philadelphia Eagles asking for too much in a Carson Wentz trade? And besides Trevor Lawrence, who are the top quarterback prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft?
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?
