Factoid: Fourth-round wideouts

It was a very strong draft class for wide receivers. Six were selected in the first round, and 15 in the first three. That's the most on the first two days since 2014, a stellar group that included Mike Evans, Odell Beckham, Allen Robinson and Davante Adams (Watkins-Cooks-Landry too). Over the weekend I saw an item about a wideout that fell just outside the top three rounds, Buffalo's Gabriel Davis.   more »

Around the NFL: George Kittle

San Francisco tight end George Kittle is in a contract year, but just maybe something will get done sooner rather than later. He's been the team's leading receiver in recent years, and will almost certainly be their top target again this year (especially given the Deebo Samuel injury). When he signs he'll be the NFL's highest-paid tight end -- reportedly in the neighborhood of $13 million per season.   more »

Factoid: Cam Newton

I like the fit of Cam Newton with the Patriots. With Josh McDaniels and Bill Belichick, I think they’ll have a good feel for how to use him. And Newton still has plenty of good ball left.  more »

Around the NFL: David Njoku

David Njoku changed agents last week, and as often happens following such a move, he's now demanding to be traded. The Browns, having signed Austin Hooper to a huge contract and drafted Harrison Bryant in the fourth round, might be willing to accommodate him. It remains to be seen what kind of market there will be.   more »

Fantasy News: Teddy Bridgewater

I’m not a Teddy Bridgewater fan. I think he’s another Alex Smith – a careful game-manager type quarterback who’s a lot better in real life than he is in our little game.   more »

Factoid: Todd Gurley

I’m not a big Todd Gurley fan. I would be surprised if there’s a point in any draft this year where I’m on the clock and giving any thought of selecting him. With his knee issues, I just don’t think he’s the back he was a few years back.  more »
