Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson stepped into it this week when he posted some anti-Semitic quotes on social media. He says he didn’t realize how those were interpreted and vowed to take steps to educate himself and work with the Jewish community in Philadelphia.
For WISE Sports Radio‘s NFL segment, Pat Ryan and I discussed whether the Eagles should release Jackson or if he should be taken at his word. We also talked about the massive contract Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes signed and continuing efforts to get the Washington Redskins to change their team name.
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.
While sports are on hiatus due to the coronavirus crisis, there was one big development that still held some drama and suspense: Would Tom Brady leave the New England Patriots and end his NFL career with another team?Now we know. Brady will be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback next season.
Of course, that led Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment. Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discussed other big free agent signings and trades that have happened this week, including Teddy Bridgewater signing with the Carolina Panthers, Philip Rivers going to the Indianapolis Colts, and a bizarre allegation toward Houston Texans coach and general manager Bill O’Brien.
Tom Brady’s pending free agency has taken the sports world hostage, so that was our main topic on Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment! Could Brady really leave the New England Patriots and sign with another team, such as the San Francisco 49ers? Should Bill Belichick be doing more to make his star quarterback feel wanted?
Pat Ryan and I also discussed the Carolina Panthers’ head-scratching trade, Dak Prescott’s contract situation with the Dallas Cowboys, and which prospects surprised and disappointed at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Quarterbacks make the NFL world go ’round (well, maybe coaches too) and this offseason figures to be very entertaining with big names like Tom Brady available to sign with another team. And he’s apparently ready to.
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I also ask if Cam Newton is a good fit with new Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule, Ron Rivera challenging Dwayne Haskins in Washington, the new Collective Bargaining Agreement proposal, and how much money the Dallas Cowboys will have to pay Dak Prescott.
