So Stott's it is not very often where the expectations for something or Sky High and The work meet it but ESPN's draft coverage is about as normal thing as I have seen on television made on television since this started. I can't believe the undertaking that the draft was and how well it was televised under impossible. Circumstances I'm not the guy who walks around congratulating the company patting the company on the back for doing what it's supposed to do but this was above and beyond and Adam Schefter. Was that the middle middle of everything that was happening here in terms of bringing us access. What do you have before I bring? Schefter on Sudan's I just wanted to point out. It's a great observation. By nearly flawless there are countless behind the scenes. People that should probably be thanked. So thank you but also Trey Wingo in the middle of that thing with that energy in the studio by himself balancing everything. He had the ballots for three consecutive. Days was my mvp of the weekend He did a phenomenal. Wow the high res Adam Schefter. I'm sorry that you are not stu. Got His. Mvp of the week and we appreciate your participation in this contest. The Adam Schefter podcasts. Something that's available to you wherever it is. You get your podcast last week. He talked to Joe Borough. So let's start here at When you look at you when you talk to executives they say what in terms of who did the very best this weekend and who really got it wrong my teams now because I thought we were talking about just the draft itself and let me just say when you give out the MVP to Trey Wingo. He's very worthy but I would give an MVP and our shared amongst one hundred and fifty people who are actually at ESPN in the Control Room in. The building forced to leave their homes at time. And everybody you weren't given one so you can't get anywhere anyway. One hundred and fifty people who came to who you think you are but it's MVP award and he already gave it to Trey Wingo Trey. Wingo wants to share it up to him giving me Pete all the people behind the scenes. That's all okay. That's all well and fine and you've covered the award podium and you've said the thing that will get the applause but again trey wingo was the MVP. According to God's not anyone now give us what you're here for winners and losers winners I think. Winners and losers of address weekend are some of the most ridiculous and meaningless things that you could actually do because anybody could do it and it sounds great and I guess that's what we have to do two days after the fact but in two thousand seventeen will you give the chiefs as a draft winner for the bold move to take packs mahomes if I remember correctly in that draft people will lauding the forty niners for moving back any extra picks and getting Solomon Thomas and Reuben Foster in round one how that worked out okay. So again we can give about winners and losers. It doesn't mean anything. And so then I. I'm SORTA come back but I'll come back to. Espn is a draft welcome back to the NFL which again speaking for coaches GM's personnel people in Lee. They were not happy. They were not happy about having a draft this week and I wasn't thrilled about having a draft this week and nobody was around the League. Okay and the and it came off flawlessly so to me. That's the way you know. It was the winter Roger Goodell. Okay Roger Goodell. Who's been the subject of an incredible amount of criticism to me? Probably enjoy the three best days of his commissionership over thirteen years. And those were the winners. You WanNa talk team. Who knows who knows how these guys are. GonNa Develop. You'd never know. There are a lot of teams that look like. They did well or their teams. You wonder about but but he. So what if Jordan love turns out to be a Patrick mahomes like with the Green Bay? Packers a winner if he turns out to be. Paxton Lynch or Tommy Maddox. They're loser all but the thing can be. The thing is curious though Adam. You can look at what the just did given that. They got a guy under contract for an enormous money and basically the value of Jordan. Loves CONTRACT IS GOING TO EXPIRE while he's not even playing because of how dumb it is to trade up in that spot when you need it other things that were a game from the Super Bowl like I think. What they did was the most surprising thing. I saw the draft and the dumbest well a again. It was curious. That's a very good way of describing it and I think if you want to second guess that that's fair the only thing I would say like today when you got Aaron Rodgers and you've got a chance to win and you're in the NFC championship game last year. And you're that close and knocking on the door. You want to go get another wide receiver. You WanNa get skill position player. You WanNa go get somebody that's GonNa help your hall of fame quarterback take that next step and instead they took a player now it took a player but created up to get a player and then came out of a draft that was the deepest wide receiver class ever without any wide receivers. So yes I understand that but to my point that if Jordan love turns out to be Aaron Rodgers life and they had the position you sit up for forty five fifty years far too rogers to love from Iraq to Jaylo. Then they win. They way it's still a dumb contract to have those two contracts next to each other. It's dumb to have them like that doesn't make I understand what you're saying. Yes if they hit it out of the park and get the greatest quarterback ever. He still won't be add value by the time the contracts up regardless. Check out the with you. I'm with you okay. I wouldn't do that if I quarterback Arron Rogers who's got two three four more years left I would. That's not what I would do but again I'm not to GM so this matter. Can you explain to me? What is the responsibility of the League and the Patriots in uncovering that the kicker being drafted has a three percent or Tattoo? That runs all right. All right And militaristic and no one asks about it and no one knows about it and the press conference that the kid had introducing himself Marshall Kicker. It rang untrue I honestly I'd have to figure out more details because that's not something. I was cracking going to weekend. I wouldn't feel comfortable commenting on something. I have a limited knowledge fair enough but I I would like somebody give me Samantha. Tire career doing that so now. Let me say this to you. Then the guy's name was cold. There was the first time I heard the guy's name. Okay I I don't know that guy. I don't know anything about him. So I'm not going to render opinion about that I understand the sensitivity of it and the issue but I really don't know anything that you're allowed to sit it out. I just want to talk to somebody who can answer that question for me. Go ahead stugotz Adam. Schefter everything about every prospect. Get HIM ON ASKING ADAM. Schefter with us here on. Espn radio check out. The Adam Schefter podcast. Wherever you get your podcast. Last week. He talked to first overall pick Joe Borough so check out the Adam. Schefter podcast Adam. Cam Newton is still a free agent. Why why because first of all they release him to three weeks into free agency. There are no starting jobs available. He's still is a transcendent talent. He still used to making starting quarterback money. Nobody's GonNa give him a starting quarterback job. I don't believe I don't believe anybody's GonNa give them starting quarterback money. I don't believe and nobody knows whether or not he sells. He postal the workout videos. He wants and it's encouraging to see that it looks like he is healthy and he's making progress and then it'll be ready to play but before team invested whatever money it's going to in a player like Cam Newton. They're gonNA want their doctors to put physical a print through a physical and put their hands maybe with some states lifting some restrictions. Maybe at that point in time somebody can get him in and get a physical but again. There aren't a lot of options and I think if you're Cam Newton at this point in time what you WANNA do. Is You want to set up a deal where you get a one year contract and where you get two free a year from now at the start of free agency when teams were quarterback needs are looking to address them right away with the job with the money with all those things so. I think that he's looking for a Patrick Band aid type situation to get him through to next year fleet. Become a free agent at that time next year and you can make an argument for eight to ten teams. But there's no one team that you say. Oh boy this. This is an obvious landing spot for Cam. Newton it's not New England which is a million dollars under the CAP. Don't have the space for them. It's not the chargers went out and drafted Justin. Herbert Jacksonville seems married to Gardner Menchu and some of the younger players We can go through Jameis. Winston identified a spot New Orleans. The recognizing a one year contract. Well this'll be a smart place to go. I learned from Sean Payton drew brees. I'll fill the teddy bridgewater roll and then one year from now. Hey Free Agency and try this again and the best case scenario. Maybe I get a chance to play this year..

Coming up next
