"Lines have. been on fire today to the question is Roger Goodell handling the NFL return correctly end does the NFL Oh Colin, Kaepernick and apology. Can join us in the discussion. Eight seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six, eight, eight, eight, say ESPN Jim from Montana Jim. How are you today? I'm fine. How about yourself I'm doing well? What are what are your thoughts on the on the NFL owing Colin, Kaepernick and apology. I like to say good afternoon to you and as far as the NFL owing Colin cavern apology, I don't think they do I think Colin. Kaepernick politics and a personal agenda into the workplace, and that does not fly. If he do that and any other area of life, you'll probably be shown the door relatively quick. as far as Kim. Being offered a position back in the NFL. Yes, I think. He does deserve another shot, but I also think he's being made out to be more than what he was. If you look at his numbers statistically over his career, he was a mediocre quarterback. He had one good solid year under when they went to the super bowl and almost one, but. He's he's not. He's not as great as everybody's making him out to be. Thanks and you guys have a fantastic afternoon hard. Jimmy was well. Look I mean here. Here, listen. Colin Kaepernick was never in the MVP discussion, but to dismiss him as a marginal quarterback, and then in the same breath say he almost won. A super bowl is a little unfair. Colin Kaepernick a star. What he last appeared in the NFL the answer to that question of course is no, but the guy almost won a super bowl. As for the notion that he dragged politics into sports, and you do that or any other realm. You're going to be shown the door. I think we all know that sports and entertainment is a different realm than than. The person who goes to an office in bangs out a nine to five everyday. And whether or not you agree with Colin Kaepernick's position or not. The fact of the matter is this conversation was largely started by him. I mean he's the one that that people are pointing to insane. You know what? He's the one that that started US having this conversation, so you can object to him kneeling during the national anthem because you believe in the flag and I'll listen to that. But you can't object to the fact that this guy has had this conversation and he's the one who started it. We continue on I. Take Your Take Espn Radio next..

"Well I. Mean I think. Everybody knew that that West is going to be involved with the Nixon some for him. I mean he's been he's been working with. Leon rose for twenty twenty five years at this point, so I I don't think that anybody is necessarily surprised that he that he's working for the Knicks I mean. There was some there was some things went back and forth a little bit when Leon rose a job running the next, but there at one point it was expected when he joined the team than other points. They thought he might say but. I. I don't think that this comes as much of a surprise anybody if there's anybody in the world that Leon rose is GonNa Trust to help him. You know trying to turn the knicks around it would be. It would be west given. The amount of time spent working together over the past couple of decades, and they have their work cut out for them to say the very least. They delete. Tim I want to ask you about this Vince Carter retired yesterday after twenty two years, one of I was thinking about the best ways to describe him. Obviously electrifying comes to mind, but also for me one of the most professional players in the history of the League, and in my opinion, deserving of a far better sendoff than quietly saying farewell at a podcast, but such is life here and twenty twenty. Is Vince Carter a hall of Famer. Yeah I think he will be when you look kind of the breadth of his the breadth of his achievements over time. I think he's GonNa. Get in and I. Think you know really I think you should get in for no other reason the impact. He had on a sport in Canada I. Mean It's not a coincidence that that you see a lot of young Canadian basketball players coming into the NBA. Who are ages? You know twenty five to eighteen right? I mean those guys were all kids and Vince. Carter was coming off and becoming a real star in Canada, and he made the raptors of long-term Bible Franchisee made basketball, a popular sport Canada and really kind of establish a foothold there for it, so I think that alone is enough for him to get into the hall of fame and when you factor in. Obviously. You had a great career you know I don't remember exactly raisin scoring list, but he's scored a ton of points, and you know really kind of you know like you say. The model citizens, and really kind of remarkable way went from being one of the biggest superstars and lead to a guy who was very happy to be a role player for you know the final air ten years of his career You know just really had A. A really remarkable run and and I would be very surprised if it doesn't end with him winding up in Springfield and a few years yeah, twenty thousand points, which he's at is kind of that milestone number I. think it's one of the benchmarks in the NBA where you can say this guy's. Probably he was. He was remarkable I mean anyone who doesn't remember the early part of his career. Go back and look because he was not only a sensational. Dunk contest there you, go. But also had an extra enjoyed a tremendous amount of winning with the New Jersey Nets with. Jason Kidd. Once upon a time, he had a fabulous career. Hey, great stuff today, great insight from our PAL ESPN NBA reporter Tim Bontemps Tim. Thanks so much for joining us. Absolutely Kevin. Days haven't Tim joining us via.

No contract straight talk wireless, no contract, no compromise, well four and a half weeks from today NFL. Training camps are scheduled to open. Of course there are about a million variables, but if we're being optimistic, hope is on the horizon of course, a big big question in the world of sports right now are leagues handling their respective returns correctly. Earlier on I take. The conversation got specific to Roger Goodell. Here's Laura Rutledge Stephen. A Smith Max Kellerman and Dan Orlovsky discussing whether or not the NFL. Commissioner has handled things correctly. My director would be not yet the the reality is. Is that the Matt in which they talk? They appears to be at times and absence of sensitivity to the situation in terms of making sure ensuring to some degree that players are conducting themselves in proper fan, Fashion Jones of engaging in social distancing and things of that nature that could could that could contribute to really quelling the momentum of the corona, coming in their direction I think that there's a better job that he can do in regards to that, but the reason why I use the two words not yet is because unlike major league baseball where they're getting ready to return. The spring training, not spring training anymore, but training before the season begins July unlike the NBA which is getting set to restart in July. The NFL doesn't really.

"What they do with the position has more so how how they can help us win a championship and I think the quarterback position generally sears teams more like I mean more toward look at teams that are in the Super Bowl's generally you know I think that there teams with quarterbacks who? Who are worth the money that they get paid? I mean you've got some certainly some exceptions there, but generally speaking the reason we're paying quarterbacks is not because. Like I don't know I, don't I. Don't think it's about the position I think it's about. We always here. For example you can't don't running back so it's not worth it, but if you go up and down the list at highest paid going into the season. You Know Julio Jones how many Super Bowl wins. Does he have at this point? You can go up and down the list with with safeties. You can go Khalil Mack like you know clue Mac and I regret the day that my beloved raiders traded him. What's done for the bears? I Aaron Donald? How much so? At some point is the argument. Actually don't pay anybody. Well the argument is you win by drafting well, and that's in this instance. The checks drafted Jamal Adams. Well, you win by getting guys. To succeed on the rookie deals when they're more affordable and that's that's that's why they need to benefit from Jamal Adams first contract, and and the the idea of paying now just makes no sense to the recipe of what it takes to win. The NFL I get you have to pay Patrick Mahomes all this money at this point, but generally speaking. That's not the case. That's the outlier. That's one of the greatest to put on a uniform so. So the idea of paying a gun atmosphere year. As the panthers did with Christian McCaffrey and the chiefs elected you. Patrick mahomes quite honestly is not what you WanNa do the team. You WanNa get the most out of those rookie deals as you possibly can. All right so I'll leave you this. Which Mall Adams in the jets you gotta? You GotTa Bet. If if Jamal Adams. If you're right on this, you get your own private beach in Florida. If you're wrong, you got to move to like the middle of nowhere new. Mexico that's that's the only way on this Jamal Adams playing for the jets this season. Think play at the end of the season. My guess would be holds out. He seems like he's very staunch in that. And I think that the I think Joe Douglas and Adam Gates. Put their the ground. Say No. We're not trading that. And we're not paying you so I. think that it is hold out until Adams. Season and all of a sudden. We're sitting in a love young bell situation. See. I'M GONNA? Love hanging out with you on your Private Beach Jeff always appreciate your insight. Nobody does it better.

"No contracts, no compromise. Now users wear usually. Take you directly to I. Take and we'll get there in a second because there was an important guest today Gerald McCoy joined first-day, and he talked about Jerry Jones and the responsibility to speak out on social issues. Before you hear from Gerald McCoy, the cowboys star before we get there though I wanna talk to you a little bit about what we figured. Figured out yesterday in this conversation because I put up a twitter poll, we put it up originally as a question on twitter, and we had such varied responses that put up a poll and flat out, ask you. Do you want to hear from your favorite teams owner? Sixty three percent of you, said no sixty three percent, which is a huge question to me because we in the media, step back and we say wait. We've got to hear from Jerry Jones. We've got to hear from Robert Kraft. We've got to hear from prominent, NFL. Owners Why? Who are we to give that sort of an edict out to any of these owners that they have to do something? Just because we say it's a right thing to do now. Do I think it's a positive for Jerry? Jones to speak out if he's passionate about this movement, Hell yes, do I think there's huge platform availability and opportunity for owners to speak out, and it can be great for the conversation that we're all trying to. To have right now ABSA freaking lutely. Do I think those things? Yes, can I impart the fact that I think those things onto Jerry. Jones, no because I'm not as customer you are. I use the word customer intentionally instead of Fan. When you're a fan, you're spending your time, but most importantly your incredibly hard earned money to support a brand to support a team when you do that, you then get to decide what you're willing. To to support. That's why I've continually told everybody. We've got to stop asking owners to change lease step in, and we've got to start making change with our money. Because when you start spending money or stop spending money on somebody because of what they do, don't say that's the ultimate power. I'm going to do something here. I'm going to listen to you because of you to ask me twenty four. Four hours ago I told you I believe Jerry Jones has a responsibility to speak out because he can do because we've heard from him so many times in the past on issues in general, however, now that I've heard from so many of you and you overwhelmingly disagree I'm willing to evolve my thinking. I'm willing to step back and say maybe the way I see. It isn't the same as. As the way that so many of you see, maybe in fact, you don't want to know what your favorite owner thinks so that you don't have to think about it whatever your reasoning is. It doesn't matter if it's your business to support if he's speaking to his actual customers. Isn't that all that matters now? The question is who are Jerry Jones customers because in some ways he has a responsibility. Responsibility to his fans in some ways I believe that he has a great opportunity to do incredible things for the community, but put that aside. Then you also have to say what's his responsibility to his players, and that's why this is important. Gerald McCoy joined. I take to talk with Stephen and Max about Jerry Jones and the responsibility that McCoy Fay's. He has to speak out on social issues. With everything going on. Well, the Stephen Likes it or not. The most recognizable franchise in the world is the Dallas Cowboys. Okay, so when a situation like what's going on which has been going on, this is not new is not. It's been going on, but now it's been brought to major light with the tragedy of George Floyd people are seeing. Is this really what's going on this has been going on. This is not new. You're just now seeing that. This is how brutal it really is. Well, you have a franchise as recognizable. The cowboys people listened when they speak up and. The owner Jerry Jones who is one of the most recognizable figures in sports history when he speaks, everybody listens while I think at this point in time. I feel. It will be great to hear him. Say something positive or say anything you know I. I love what he's been to the sport. He's been excellent to the sport of football. He's a hall of Famer. At this point is bigger than football, we need him to speak up about life. This is about human beings and equal rights, and it's not what's happening, and it will be great to hear him say. Jared I appreciate you saying that and all jokin Assad joking none. I got a lot of love for Jerry. Jones, I really really do often. I've heard a lot of great things about him. Over the years I've gotten to know him a little bit. I'm very very fond of Jerry Jones, which is why called The Dallas. Cowboys and I call ridsdale ripple, still waiting to hear back from them, because my whole point is I'm looking for Jerry Jones and I'm not gonNA. Let it go because it doesn't matter to me what he says as soon. As it pertains to Capitol Anybody, 'cause you entitled to your feelings, but you can't be as magnetized or as attracted to that camera with everything else all these and then get quiet now. I know you spoke out. What level communication do you believe the Dak Prescott of the world, demarcus? Lawrence is of the world people like that. What level of obligation do you feel?.

"Who's on your MBA Mount Rushmore Tristan in Pittsburgh? What he got man. Who's on your MBA? Around Mount Rushmore Jason. So when I think about the NBA. Rushmore I think about the best player the best winner the best coach and the creator of basketball. So I've got Michael Jordan. The Best Player I've got bill. Russell is the best winter undoubtedly. I went back and forth on the best coach but I landed on Mike Chef after some thought. I think he deserves that title after all accolades. Then obviously James Naismith goes on there for creating the game and really laying the foundation for what we know. Is the Greg Abra Basketball Trista next for your take? If you just said those four names to me I would have said you. Lost Your Dang mind but you explain it so perfectly. I got no argument with that. There's a real structure to it. I mean some people might argue the best player but I I wouldn't personally so the logic makes a Lotta sense. I'm all in on that. Best Player winner best coach and the creator of basketball. Like that's a heck of a way to do a Mount Rushmore. End Kudos to you for acknowledging. There's only four faces Mount Rushmore. We're still struggling that on twitter. Kenny and Kentucky. What you got. What's your MBA Mount Rushmore? Yeah I'm I'm not suggesting that I didn't know if he meant NBA general but as far as players that they're telling the history of the game. You have to start with Magic Michael Lebron. There's no question about it. Starting in nineteen eighty and as far as the celtics from the sixties instead of going with Russell. There's too many hall of famers on that team. I'M GONNA go with our back and I think the Mount Rushmore looks great but the one has coach and three players like that. Take a lot Kenny. Because you did a smart thing with the Celtics. I feel like this again. I'm going to go back to chop you smart thing with that ingredient. Because I can't figure out how to quantify those celtics teams because there were so many hall of famers on it they were so dominant. They were obviously incredible and I never really watched them play with any context so taking the coach. There is a great way to do it. Obviously that's a smart move by a lot of you guys want to. Chime in on that end apparently fired everybody up when it comes to deck see. This is why we talk about that all the time. Everybody asked why you'll get fired up about it. You guys seem to want to Chime in. Chime in on it. We're GonNa let that happen so triple eight say. Espn eight eight eight seven nine. Three seven seven six. We're GonNa let you build your Mount Rushmore. Obviously we'll keep taking your take. If you guys want argued back. We will do that as well. That's all coming up plus the Daniel Jones. We've got some Daniel Jones on the awkwardness of playing with ally last year. That you don't WanNa Miss. We'll tell.

"We've over get there though Robert in Vegas we were just talking about Dak. And whether or not they should franchise them whether or not they should sign him to a long term deal. I'll let you get your taking Robert. You WanNa talk about the cowboys and deck. Give me what you got Robert. What's your take. No actually that's the thing is i? Don't WanNa talk the cow about the cowboys with you. Guys keep talking about. It doesn't matter who they have at quarterback they're gonNA go eight and they at best they're gonNA lose in the first round of the playoffs. That's what they do. So if I'm Jerry Jones. I'M GONNA sign the Cheapest Guy 'cause I'm GonNa get the same record anyway so screw it. Yeah but why? Would you argue that when they have an entire new coaching staff? Them entire new group of people. Running this this talent roster which we've been saying for the last. Several years is one of if not the most talented rosters in the NFL. That's relevant boys. There should be irrelevant. They should be like the jets. Shouldn't talk about them as much you talk about the jets that franchise trash you have a Robert. Here's the thing first and foremost. Why did we talk about the cowboys so much? Because the cowboys rate I mean. Let's just be honest. This is not a peek behind the curtain. Moment here the reason certain teams get talked about all the time is because they have bigger fan bases that care more and I hate to say that for everybody. That doesn't want to hear it but the reason that we talk about the cowboys the reasons the cowboys get so many. National Games is because they study ratings. Like there's a reason certain teams get on. Tv more than other teams. The cowboys are one of them. And if you're the quarterback of the cowboys what do they always say? You have more marketing opportunities. Why because you have a bigger fan base. That's more passionate so the reason we're not gonNA spend that time talking about the bengals because frankly compared to the cowboys nobody cares. Let me just being a beacon light and truth here. Nobody cares about certain organizations on the grand scheme of things so more people care about the cowboys. That's why we talk about it. More but to make any sweeping generalization who the cowboys have been without at least acknowledging who they now have as their head coach. They have an entire different staff. So if you have a talented roster with a different staff why would we hold anything that the previous regime has done against the current one? I mean if you're a bengals fan will go back to them. Did you not get to have some sort of renewed vision after Marvin Lewis left? I mean that's part of why you make a coaching change. Is that fair to hold the raiders of the nineties against the Raiders of the net? Well there's some similarity coach but when you change. Gm You change direction of a franchise and that's why you can't hold the previous cowboys mediocrity against the current cowboys because the only thing that is the same as the the people running the roster. The people making the ingredients the CHEF. That's in charge of the basket of chop is completely different. And if you've got a different shift you'll get a different dish. That's the reason for hope for the cowboys and we'll talk about them all day long because frankly more people care I take your take on. Espn radio I got fired up about that shows. How fired up by 'em right now we'll get more you're coming in as you give us your NBA Mount Rushmore triple eight say espn eight. Eight eight seven nine. Three seven seven six. We'll take that in just a second but there was a conversation Stephen had about the warriors and warriors need to do do. They need another title to substantiate their dynasty as crazy as that sounds. This is what Steven had to say about it today. No dynasty lasts forever and the bottom line is it all comes to an and in the end. We're going to look at five trips to five straight trips to the NBA Finals. In and we're going to record it in history. As one of the great runs we've ever seen in the history of basketball that gets us to the individuals and when you talk about the Golden State Warriors the splash. Brothers are the reason they're so relevant and I want to state for the record what I've stated on many occasions. This is the greatest shooting backward in the history of basketball. I have never seen two guys in the same back court. That can shoot from long range. The Way Steph curry and Klay Thompson both can shoot both of them off. Career forty one percent or better shooters from three point range. Okay and I'm personally partial to Klay Thompson for this reason. I think is an absolute travesty. As an aside I WANNA say this. I think it's an absolute travesty. That media members my contemporaries in this business costs this man thirty million dollars last year. He didn't make any all. Nba teams first second or third team. As a result you couldn't he wasn't eligible for the supermax of two hundred and twenty million. He had to get one hundred and ninety million dollars because the media sat up there and didn't put him on the top three all. Nba teams. It is a travesty. We should all be partial to Klay Thompson. For Costa's man is thirty million dollars because he deserved it period. Set all of that. I'll also want to say this. I don't believe as long as Klay. Thompson and Steph. Curry are healthy. That there will ever before teams in basketball in the same season better than them ever not. As long as they're healthy not those two because the way the game is today and the way that they can shoot. They are so elite as a back court. I don't think anyone can touch them. And that includes James Harden and Russell Westbrook because they can't shoot like these dudes can they can dance and you WanNa won. The unstoppable make no mistake about it but they can't shoot like those two brothers they just can't do it and they certainly don't play defense like Klay Thompson and so for me. You got those to withdraw Magri. All you need is another piece another piece of scoring fo it this all you need. You need peace. And as far as I'm concerned we'll be talking about the Golden State Warriors Win Championships again. I'm Eddie tell you this right now. They better not get some kind of scoring option on the front line. They get one scoring and I aint talking about Kevin Durant level? Yana said that the coupon I'm not even talking about stuff like that. Max if they can have bona fide. Twenty points per. Game Frontcourt Scorer. The Lakers oughta clippers beaten. I take your take on. Espn RADIO AND ESPN news. Look WHENEVER WE START TALKING ABOUT. What else needs to happen for dynasty to be sort of secured? I think we're talking in the moment. Sometimes we have to remember that in the moment to tough on everything when we this is the thing conversation we've been having about belichick and Brady who needs more this year. Well the question really for both of them is who needs more for their dynasty and the answer is neither. I mean when we talk about dynasties we're not just talking about the in the moment we're talking about how your grandkids will view this era and as much as we come in today and try and question everything about everything. Because that's new cycle. We live in. I'm not willing to think that they're going to do that. About the Warriors Dynasty in twenty years it will be less about the hate felt towards Kevin Durant and more about the glory felt of watching this dynasty or the glory felt and watching them get upset in the finals. Whichever side you're gonNA take but I don't think anything can be done right now. That will truly change the.

"The straighttalk is around Dak Prescott and the Dallas cowboys as the guys were joined. Stephen Max joined by Damien Woody today to have a conversation about the timing of all of us. Would it be smart for the cowboys to give Dak big deal? Or should they just keep the franchise tag on him and go from there? This is what Damien Woody Stephen. Am Max I have to say about that. I've religiously stated that if this were Tony. Romo deal would have been done. It's getting to a point where I think it's appropriate to ask the question why this not been done to quarterback is the most important position in the national football league. According to many aficionados you know the history the recent history of the Dallas Cowboys. And I'm upset I'M NOT GONNA lie. I'm upset at the EMMITT. Smith's of the World Michael Irvin's of the world and who I love dearly. Y'All know that but I'm upset at the fact that nobody at least brings up the question. They're like Oh this business this is leverage etc etc. There certain people playing certain positions. You don't do this to not to do quarterback position because that's how vital they are to the success of your franchise and to the culture that is being established and cemented as a franchise. He's not just a football player. When you are a quarterback a franchise quarterback you're not just the data throws the football. You're not just an extension of the head coach. You're also an extension of ownership. Think back to the Colin Kaepernick situation and think about what how. How Dogged Jerry? Jones wasn't this position. You remember that story Damien Woody when they talk about how Jerry Jones called in his players and articulated to them. This is a business meeting. It's not a football meeting and basically articulated to them. Listen this is this Texas this theft down here all right different rules. And if if I'll bottom line is compromised mop bottom compromise. Your bottom line is going to be compromised and one of the things that Jerry Jones had. His disposal was a quarterback that locks that with him and supported his position about making sure that the focus stay on football instead of veteran beyond that. All of these things are incredibly incredibly imported. And so when I hit Emmitt Smith's of the world who's a hall of fame and one of the greatest players we've ever seen in a great phenomenal guy and Michael Irvin a playmaker and everybody just dismiss it as business. It's not just business when it gets to this point at some point in time you're Dak Prescott whether you're quote unquote worried or not is not the issue. The bottom line is you might not be worried. But you're still sitting back going like this so you just go saw all these other dudes and it's been a year that I've been sitting back here waiting for us to reach an agreement. Oh it's like that. I'm not worried about it. There is an explicit a franchise tag offer for thirty one and a half million dollars if I remember correctly but the point is at some point in time people who do right by you deserve to have right done by them and you're not doing that that speaks to something more than just business. And that's what I'm saying about Dak Prescott. Nothing we all can re sitting here right. Now there's no question about it at Prescott. His earned whatever he has come into them as far as a new deal of concern talking about a guy who was a fourth round pick. Who's Bailey's played? Every single game has gotten and better every year but I also thought about this. I think it would be a smart business. Move BUT DALLAS COWBOYS TO SIGN TAC? Long longtime extension. Here's why the NFL has yet. Negotiate is TV rights deal. We also know that the NFL through the news. Collective bargaining agreement will be going to seventeen games so with seventeen gangs. Guess what that means that means of money more money. That's GONNA come into the equation so as much as we talk about Jack and all you know that he deserved money does he. Deserve to be the highest paid. Well guess what in a couple of years when the new TV money comes in when they're playing expanded to an additional game DAK Prescott contract is not gonna look anywhere near what it what we're talking about right now. I could make an argument that it would actually be a bargain if Dak Prescott is still ascending as a quarterback so that would be my argument as to why the Dow was really should be trying to back in instead of waiting and waiting waiting when the new TV money laughing. And you could end contending with batch mahomes and Shawn Watson coming up as well. Now that is some straight talk. Obviously coming from Damien Woody right there. Espn radio presented by progressive. Home Insurance. Get you quote. Progressive Dot Com. Today I want to reiterate something Damian said when you talk about that because you have to look at the fact that this isn't just about right now. This is about the length of the contract and as has been echoed many times on this show Edwards said that the other day anyone that thinks that this is the lack of belief by the cowboys in deck. Let's accept the fact that they publicly made an offer that has been reported to make him the highest paid in the league. I mean he's going to be one of the highest big quarterbacks in the League so there is no lack of belief in back. This comes down to how much money they can get and when they can get it if you want the ability to go back to the market as many times as possible to get yourself paid and with the new TV DEAL. Twenty twenty two. If you're Dak you want the ability to love yourself again if you're back and you know that you're on a spectacular football team this year that should very just by virtue of having a new coach inside that building. They believe that they have the ability to win the Super Bowl. So you WanNa tell me back and go in this roster and the next couple of years and then want the opportunity to renegotiate after Mahomes and Watson have gotten paid. I mean this all makes a lot of sense. It is possible and it's actually not. I'm not even GONNA say possible. It's probable when you put the the legos together to build the castle near it is probable that the cowboys believe in deck and the Dak believes in himself and those two beliefs. Make it very difficult to get the deal done when the cowboys WanNa do something as long as possible because the longer you signed somebody today the easier. That contract becomes overtime. Look no further for me personally as you know. I'm a raiders. Fan Remember the uproar. When Derek Carr signed a contract there was going to pay him twenty five million dollars a year because Oh my God. That is so much money. Now we look at quarterbacks that are making twenty five million dollars a year and say oh. You've got him on a manageable deal. Why because the best quarterback in the League isn't the one that's paid the highest the best quarterback that happens to come up for contract renegotiation. This off season will be the one that's paid the highest. We spend all of this time arguing about whether a quarterback during earned the money. And I'll say it again. You've earned the money if somebody's willing to pay it to you. You've earned the money if you hit the open market and it happens to be that time than any other business if you're a contract if you're a construction worker and you work somewhere where you know there. There just isn't a lot of construction being done. You might not have any jobs there. It doesn't mean you're not great at your job and then you work somewhere else where there's a ton of opportunity in somebody wants to pay you. You don't have to be great at your job. It's no different. There's a real life scenario here where you can be back Prescott. You can be very good and that's all it takes. You can be very good and that's all it takes to get you paid and it's also possible. The DAK wants to be very good and getting himself paid as many times as while the cowboys in fact WanNa lock him up for as long as possible. All of these things can make sense. And guess what the best part is. We're nowhere near the deadline. So there's no reason for action. Don't forget navy..
Jaguars 'absolutely interested' in signing Andy Dalton
"After the Cincinnati Bengals released quarterback Andy Dalton yesterday a report from ESPN's Jeff Darlington says the Jacksonville Jaguars are absolutely interested in signing the thirty two year old quarterback the Tennessee Titans are declining the fifth year option on wide receiver Corey Davis's contract Davis will now become a free agent after the twenty twenty

"What's in your Wallet Capital One member? Fdic so many of you know that this show has a relationship with Aaron Rodgers. He comes on with us at least in part because we don't talk sports. He's got other interests other than sports. And so we fool around with Aaron Rodgers. Lot so a lot of people are going to think that this analysis I'm giving you here's got is born of some sort of need to protect him or protect someone who's good to the show. The reason that Aaron Rodgers came into our lives in any way is simply because I have been such an admirers to gods of the artistry with which that man plays that position. I've thought for years. The packers have betrayed him by always being less good than they actually are because their quarterback can do things that no one until mahomes could feel like we're being done out there in terms of accuracy and everything else. The greatest argument that you can make on behalf of the STRENGTH OF COACHING AND BILL. Belichick is that he did all that winning with Brady and that the packers only one once during that time with a quarterback Brady would even tell you is better than he is when Brady talks about skill level and talent and artistry of the Position Brady Looks and says that guy has a skill set that I simply don't have he's got and it's not wasted talent. He does the most with that talent and so for that Organization for so many years to never draft the wide receiver in the first round. Never draft a running back in the first round. Never get anyone in free agency. Whose worth a damn just a Jimmy Graham here and there never to get anyone in free agency is help. It's really really offensive. And he should feel today as they trade up to get his replacement at about The pick where he was taken to replace far he should feel offended by that even with a contract that will pay him very well for the next few years in fact it becomes something real dumb for the packers. Do in that. It's going to be expensive right now. To get rid of Aaron Rodgers and start another quarterbacks to God. It's like he hit. This is not this is a contract. It's very large right and I'm certain well I should say have certain how iron feels because not because I do wonder Dan. Do you think when Aaron Rodgers when you have a quarterback of that stature? Who was that good who has been there that long? And you make a decision that you made last. Night Judy. There's a conversation with Aaron Rodgers before that decision made at all. Do you think that salt him in all just so? He's aware of it. I don't know I do not not helped by Brett farve. When he was coming up he was not helped. Brett Farr Brett. Farve did not want to mentor him. They were not friends because Brett. Farve wasn't going to groom his replacement and I would imagine that Aaron Rodgers. I don't know whether he would actually say it saying it tends to be ugly and no win. But I can't imagine that Aaron Rodgers would spend a whole lot of time helping the guy who's coming for his job. It does seem odd that you have this. You have this small window here you just what do it. Nfc Championship game. You have this quarterback he's nearing the end of his career. You have a small window to win a super bowl before the end of his career. And you have a I rap pick and you decide to use it on a guy that will not help you get past the forty niners not help you. How can you help me with something? I know you're eager to take and I know you're eager to get after analysis. You just infuriated Mike Ryan. I'm sorry my because Mike Ryan was about to say something. We're having difficulty doing the show. Because it's sometimes difficult to see when someone else's talking and Mike clearly got your acknowledgement to speak was about to speak and then you couldn't help yourself because you had to get that second packers take out there. Did I give a clear? Acknowledgement I to be honest. I mean it's two people in a window everyone else. It's one person in their window and it's hard to see both of you in that window. Especially why one of the two people in the window is dead. I don't know that's a very good point. I thought we locked computerized. And then you gave me the sausage fingers but you didn't do the normal sausage fingers you turn your hand over sort of go ahead young buck. I thought it was an an acknowledgement there and then I just got up. Just a fat joke in an excuse. That's guy doesn't just an excuse. Lie a pivot and a fat joke. That's all he's got in his arsenal. It's the whole thing. It's it's why the character is what the character is. It's just got those four notes. Lie Pivot Blame Fart. Thanks yeah I mean I mean did say that. It'd be nice if they took a skill position player in the first round. Pick headed into that trap. Because they haven't taken one in five years not that skill position he wanted. Erin we just did one. You know it is actually possible. The packers are so mismanaged that they would go back to Aaron Rodgers and say well. You told us to do that. We thought you had. We thought we had permission a told us to get a skill guy. We train it up. We were listening to you. It really is. It's offensive but not as not as offensive as the drapes in the borough household and not as offensive as Gus Malzahn whole setup. Man Gus Malzahn. Put It on the poll game right Lebatardshow. Are you stunned gus? Malzahn has a wife decorating like that..

"The poll plays at lebatardshow. Does Tom. Hanks need to purchase the bullied. Corona kid a laptop instead of a crappy typewriter. Because that's something that Roy was saying during the break. You're not helping a kid. All Tom Hanks's doing there is getting a whole lot of public credit for being wonderful and giving a gift that is not in any way useful to old corona even though he like the old typewriter is unique in being named Corona and it makes him special. Typewriters also pretty useless a right. I mean typewriters and not even pretty useless right at this point isn't a typewriter simply useless. Yeah which is why I think tanks got rid of it like it's just one less typewriter. He has to deal a while treating corona like goodwill. Okay just needs to get rid of it. So he shifted where where for maximum publicity on this on positive publicity. Can I ship this crappy corona typewriter? Let me send it to that bullied kid and see if Hollywood variety all right about so tom. Hanks collect typewriters. And a lot of these typewriters hard to find. They're not making typewriters anymore. Actually have a lot of value. Depending on the model this could be worse several hundred dollars or at least the price of a Mac book Bro. So I've got here is Jeff Darlington last night and this had the scare the hell out of Chris Cody. I'm curious how he experienced all of this because he was already. You saw stu gods as a Dolphin Fan. He's a dolphin fan and it was a real hopeful draft and the only way they could have screwed it up to not get to for their fan base. The fan base absolutely wanted to but there were a lot of bogus things being said lies. You know they're going to trade up for an offensive lineman they really like Herbert Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and then right before the draft. Jeff Darlington tweet. The following based on my latest conversation my mind is officially blown on potential of what might happen with the dolphins and I no longer trust anyone and I don't like anyone and I just want this to be done because now I feel like Russell Crowe and a beautiful mind and I don't know what the real. So Jeff Darlington shook. Chris Cody at his core because Chris was already scared like all of this just lent way to the are they not going to do the most obvious thing. They're really gonNA screw this up by doing the wrong thing. So how much fear did you have Chris like you didn't you? Were what kind of state by the time this draft pick was made..

"I promise you that I won't be doing this for long as radio. Hijinks telling you that I'm GONNA put off the talking about the draft for a second as I talk about something else. I know this is gonNA upset. Espn executives it's going to upset the audience and most importantly to me it's GONNA upset my own crew because they are dying to talk. Sports talk draft. Chris Cody is still wearing that disgusting. Aqua sure from yesterday it was Awkward Orange. Yesterday he slept in it. He got the quarterback he wanted is now aqua and Brown because he's been wearing that shirt of the Miami Dolphins for too long. He is quarantined. Personified this is the little little little hope. And a little bit of positivity sports positive liberty during a terrible time STU and when I say a terrible time I don't mean a pandemic I mean being a Dolphin Fan for twenty years. Yeah this the. The dolphins finally just didn't merely screw it up so royally that we would have had rioting in the streets in south Florida but before I get to the draft. I want to read a letter written on a typewriter. Well don't make that sound. Don't no no no I heard you? Okay just it's a good story and it's story and you and as you as a parent I believe are going to be moved by this even on draft even though you are Resident Sports Abe and I might be wrong I might be going syrupy and I might be going to the wrong place but I think I have something. That's GonNa move you as the father of children. You always get moved when a kid is getting bullied when a kid is getting bullied and the power rises up to him in the form of celebrity kindness. Something that always moves you. You're right the what was. Who's using a typewriter still? That's all I mean okay. Well Tom Tom Hanks is now. We know the Tom. Hanks calls himself. America's Dad we know the Tom Hanks was the first celebrity to get hit with film. And you know make it real for a lot of people. There are very few people out there who don't like Tom Hanks right. I mean who's going to have any objection to Tom Hanks. He's playing Mr Rogers in a movie and I've told you that the article that movie is based on it was written by Tom. Gino maybe the best magazine writer ever and the kindness of Mr Rogers was something that made Tom. Juno a brilliant man cynical an atheist spiritual just the kindness of the idea that Mr Rogers would be walking around the earth as a friend children and make them feel less alone would make them okay about their feelings and was just perpetually better than than a priest or a holy man was acting through kindness to help people so now look at what. Tom Hanks's done. Here's to God's when he gets a letter at home from kid named Corona who is getting bullied all over the place because his name is corona and we're in the middle of a corona virus. He writes back on a typewriter letterhead. Tom Hanks dear friend Corona your letter made my wife and I feel so wonderful. Thank you for being such a good friend. Friends make their friends feel good. When they're down I saw you on. Tv even though I was back in the USA already and all health. Even though I was no longer sick getting your letter made me feel even better. You know you're the only person I've ever known to have the name Corona like the ring around the sun a crown. I thought this corona typewriter would suit you. I take it to the Gold Coast and now it is back with you. Ask a grown up how it works and use it to write me back. You've got a friend in me. Thanks again Tom Hanks. You've got a friend in me as a nice touch and wrote that in he hand wrote that in. So I'm waiting for one of you to say what kind of crappy gift for an eight year old ten year old is waiting for one of you a cynical thought of knock it off if Mr Rogers. Because that's something Mr Rogers would do. Is it not to make a make? Make a kid feel less alone while he's being bullied yet. It's hard to not that one. Though he didn't sign hangs like that to me. That's where I would be upset. He needs the sign that thing 'cause he usually signs off. I'm telling you bleep got real with this corona virus when he said that tweet out and he said Hey. Thanks tested positive. I mean that is the deal surprise. It signed it as High. Because that's when he really means you know. Oh Billy wants to get in here. Is Billy GonNa be the one who makes the unnecessarily cynical comment about the syrup? First.
Miami Local News - Tom Brady Expected To Choose Tampa Bay Buccaneers
"And of course Tuesday was dominated by D. B. M. Q. B. they begin with a social media post from Tom Brady thank you New England for twenty years as the day began to wrap up word would come that Tom Brady would be heading south time for straight talk brought you by straight talk wireless it's Tampa Bay that's the expected landing spot for Tom Brady the the official announcement still to come the Brady expected to be a buccaneer ESPN's Jeff Darlington this kind of is because it goes back a little bit in February when the Buccaneers behind the scene started to realize and recognize that Tom Brady was also serious about entering free agency something the sports world couldn't get their minds around but the box early in realizing that it was real so fast forward to this day and I I I'm actually not all that surprised I I the sources close to him that I'm familiar with it have always indicated that what really really appealed to Tom Brady right now at this stage of his life is the autonomy that he's never had the true ability to say I am in charge of me I'll choose where I wish to be what ultimately was most important to him as he was making this choice for the first time well first of all that's a great point I think that the idea that he was running away from something in New England is very true but at the same time I think he loved the idea of chasing after something new and I think both of those things can be true in that regard he was looking at a number of different elements here too he was looking at trying to be with a coach who is maybe more collaborative not trying to be the general manager of the office reported but just maybe have a little bit more input also wanted a roster that maybe had those offense of weapons to reinvigorate himself and then two other factors maybe to some people warm weather actually like the idea of warm weather and the second thing was proximity to New York City for personal reasons and family reasons so they checked a lot of the boxes in Kampala and that's when it really to me when I started to recognize what he was looking for was when Tampa really started to make sense the news of Brady heading to Tampa Bay coming on the heels of Brady saying goodbye to the patriots in a series of posts on Instagram Tuesday which ended his twenty year run in New England ESPN analyst Steve young we got a guy that I think really wants to enjoy the last little bit of his career get with Bruce Arians who I I was a student you check into my career you know mood shows a lot of fun it was really that was the best antidote for the end of a career because you kind of it kind of grows a little guy I don't have the coast tell the same thing and so Bruce Arians is perfect for the situation so granted that's what you get is Tom Brady I think you'll see a guy joyful he loves football and have seen him love it in a unique way no I didn't get to see Tom Brady love it in a unique Tom Brady way that's not you know and that's what it was all positive for the pages of president we get that but I guess I think given tomorrow when he gets introduce is going to be just a joyful happy guy with a great coach have a great time I think more than anything it's Tom celebrating the right to go beam for true free agent I just finally got a place where a coach can could have a lot of fun and okay so what I'm hearing you say is this is gonna be fun for Brady but I mean ultimately for buccaneer fans that think it's gonna be fun for them like are they selling themselves a bill of goods because we are talking about a guy who's forty three he's not thirty five thirty six thirty seven I think the idea of the house Scott you have to kind of James was was reckless yeah he also was very productive yes you want to started to move on and I think you've got to save yourself we can get that productivity special to pull out of the play action game with the talent that we have a Mike Evans and others we can get that production out of Tom Brady even though we recognize there is in decline and that we can bless and we leave behind the recklessness and look at all of the seven point games that we lost under seven and under with nine games they lost by any state can Tom Brady win those games and I think you have a tough time saying no we can't this is not a set deal is not a team that's Super Bowl ready by area you know I get that but it's a vast racial from the box from Tom Brady and they're gonna mix it in and I think a lot of fun enjoyable self comes out worth noting what we're talking about the Buccaneers after his time in the USFL Steve young was a quarterback for the Buccaneers Tampa Bay then drafted many Testaverde because they thought young was going to be a bust Steve young all of him while Brady is heading to Tampa Bay there's also the departure from New England ESPN's Adam Schefter this signs all along the breadcrumbs laid out of Foxboro there was nothing that took place within the last seven eight months that would lead you to believe that Tom Brady was going to return to New England again let's keep it all in mind let's go back and retrieve some history he voided his contract which actually voice today is the day that the last two years on the deal void he said up to avoid that way she said it up to become a free agent there were no substantial of contract talks at all between the New England Patriots in Tom Brady despite the fact that there's been speculation that there would be that the patriots will construct never happened Tom Brady was open minded about leaving New England and basically exploring what was out there listening to other teams yesterday the negotiating period opened it was the first day he was allowed to hear from other teams he believes that he is far enough along to make the decision that I'm not gonna go back to doing which tells you that he had to be in this spot all along and he had to know that when he was walking off that field in Foxboro after the playoff loss to Tennessee he had to know his mind at that point in time that there was a real possibility that he would not be returning there as the quarterback of the New England Patriots I don't think this is a football decision only I think this is a life decision this is a decision involves him his wife his children his family his lifestyle his TB twelve models it goes beyond just football and someone said last week why is there tension wires are just why did you want to leave New England and I don't think it's a negative situation this is a group that was together for twenty years the one six super bowls that accomplish more than any combination in the history

"We have not sorted out the technology here yet. So there is some echo. So I can't go to billy right now and ask him what his armpit just smelled like as he made the move of going under the. Oh I can't ask him through the echo all right. Let's ask them billy. How is everything under there? Because you just did a an eleven thirty. Am check under the arms as you often do everything everything under there so far so good. I get accused of that a lot. I actually smelling but now that you ask. Yeah thanks seems to be going all right. They're old spice. Spike your own. Chris what do you have for us on this subject? You've seen billy do a lot of during the show right now. Okay very good Diana. Rossini joins US now on grants man another screaming baby another screaming baby Diana with us now on. Espn radio always funny when the show jumps into news gathering Cam Newton Teddy Bridgewater. What does happen there? Where'd that come from? Why aren't you worried about how could smell they they're fresh and clean One of the hardest parts about free agencies. You have to do one of those really quick rinses. 'cause you don't WanNa miss this text message So I've been hopping in doing the quick ten seconds soap. Rub Down and dry off quickly and you know almost every single season. I missed something in that ten seconds so I didn't miss one now and typical stugatz giving Adam Shekar The information on a story I broke but thanks stupor having my back again. So yeah I know but it's not hard you re twitter. There's my name you read it but no Adam. So it's been. It's been a wild morning. So the last few days I've been hearing about Teddy Bridgewater and Carolina which really shocked me. I kept going back and Google Teddy's name of being maybe other insiders had reported it and like. Oh this is weird. This is just a name. I haven't even heard But the the source that gave it to me is ironclad so I right now. We're just going through the process where Carolina is giving him the opportunity to speak this trade. They obviously made the decision they want to move on from him And take a look at what? Teddy Bridgewater could bring the Carolina if this war if this deal does turn out to to to work out You know you're talking about the same division you have was with the saints. He knows these opponents. Well you got Joe Brady calling the offense in Carolina. Joe Brady spent a year with teddy in New Orleans so it actually makes a lot of sense Diana. What do you think the panthers could get from a team? That would want Cam Newton to be their quarterback I that's the market for the trade right now is what I was doing before. I just called in to try to get a a sense of who wants can Guys the injury thing is real in terms of when you think of Cam Newton and you talk to organizations about it Even just reaching out to other teams about what they think about Cam. Everybody always Kinda says the same thing. It's like yeah if he's healthy and he's twenty fifteen so look. I the worst case scenario obviously for CAM IS GONNA BE. They cut him. I I actually think that that that that could happen Which which surprised me. But I mean wouldn't surprise me But I I'm not sure what they get for him. I really I really really don't know. And by the way with this corona virus situation and teams not being able to get physical active facilies with your team. Doctors is like another layer to all this and in the value of the fires. We have some how I don't know how we did. This gone like an hour and a half without mentioning the name. De'andre Hopkins. Have you found anybody anybody has? Has Anyone explained what Houston and bill? O'brien was doing in a way that makes sense to you. Is there anyone on the Internet anywhere? Because I've not seen a reaction to a trade. That's quite like this where everyone's consensus is. What the hell did the Texans just do? If they're going to trade him. How do they get more than that? How do they get a bad contract and a broken disposable running back instead of something that's value like who's made a good argument on of what the Texans did that make sense to you Diana okay it was so good you asked me? Because it's it's a two part answer. Happy one we are all. We're all working from home right now. Right so it's a little different And so the second. The story broke yesterday. I immediately called Houston to try to get some answers and I could not find my notebook anywhere and the person was giving me a basic explanation of why there's value to this trait and what they were thinking. So only thing I had in front of me was my w. two and just sitting. Espn W too. So I have my nose threaten about this straight on the back of this thing with the WTO is very sad looking to look at right now But that being said so the way it was explained to me was By the way we're GONNA take a picture of descended guys when I hang up with you The way they were looking at it they got two second round picks out of this. They know they don't have a first round pick. This was a way for them to get more pets. But the bigger thing was dodger Hopkins wanted a race. They did not want to pay him more money because they do not think that he is valuable for them and when I push back are you kidding. The guy has over one hundred catches their Shawn Watson. He's gotTa have it guy for the Shawn Watson when they need a to go to the Andre Hopkin and the person that I trust her in Houston pointed to the other teams that are dealing with high paid wide receivers that got deals like Julio Jones in Atlanta where it doesn't it hurts their cap and when I push back also on the fact that well this is kind of player that can get you to the playoffs. They want you to take a look at the Andre Hopkins numbers in the playoffs. And that will tell you why where we see value in hand but Dan being said I still think the issue here is always going to be. You HAVE BILL BRIAN. The football head coach. And YOU HAVE BILL. O'brien the GM. And I don't truly believe that a good ball coach love do this deal but I do know that the GM did the GM side of this love. This and thinks that this is smart. Okay because I'm not hearing anyone make that argument. I don't know what David Johnson's playoff numbers are. But that's also a bad contract. That's everyone is talking about that. Contract is it's not the kind of contract that you give to a running back and they took all the money on it. I haven't heard anybody put together an argument Diana I understand. You're going to Houston source on what it is that they're doing that. I understand trading the Andre Hopkins if you wanted to trade deandre Hopkins. What I don't understand is too fond digs getting you more. Amari cooper getting more coming back like these aren't receiver tours. Good as De'andre Hopkins. Oh they're not and the way. I think Houston is not the way. Houston is looking at this. Is They believe that. This draft class coming off has receivers that they can grow and build and make great and they obviously feel comfortable enough with deshaun Watson and his ability to make these guys around him great and spectacular to believe that they could deal one of the best receivers in the game and and look. They're getting crushed today as we all are here. I I hear what you're saying and I'm not taking their side by the way I just talked to them and this is how they're looking at it. it definitely didn't go all the way down. The line of other coaches by the way of Them agreeing with it. There's definitely Reaction from everyone even guys on the team obviously of like what the heck I had I had somebody in the building yesterday. It's me if it wasn't for the current of Irish people would be showing up to the facility banging down the door But you know there's no way we can save this. Trade was good yet until we see sure and see what happens Diana. You did such a great job covering the xfl those players from that. League of free to sign with NFL teams right now. Are there any players garnering? Nfl interest? Yeah thanks for that question because I talking to agents right now so. They're trying to figure out. Do rules spells from the last time. I checked with an agent of a quarterback Who definitely think is that? I have a great market and I guess they're still ironing out how this works right now. but obviously the name that that that you guys have seen everywhere you know. Pj walkers getting tons of attention From different teams as a backup from Seattle to Houston even I'm interested to see where he'll he'll land but I still think this is a piece that they're trying to figure out and this will probably start to come together later tomorrow. Maybe even Thursday when we start hearing xfl players getting some actress. Diana go ahead and send us that W two we WANNA see Protect some of those numbers. I don't want people to see something you you. You're the worst. How could you possibly give her story to Adam? Schefter why she's your friend. Listen she is my friend. I love her dearly.

Or whatever you need whatever you need it grainger for the ones who get it done yesterday. Something pretty amazing happened and I wonder how many people took inventory of how quickly it happened. Because God's we're always talking about the pressure that these guys in football field to get on the field whether there can cost or anything else because their livelihood are at stake and I found it fascinating that you have a situation in that were Ryan. Tannehill was available to everybody last year and he could only get a backup job in a place where he looked and he said to himself. Maybe I can be better than Mariota. He couldn't beat out Mariota before the season they start to into and they're still not playing him ahead of Mariota able at this point doesn't know to play. Tannahill ahead of Mariota in two games after starting the season scoring forty three points against Cleveland in two games. Marcus Mariota lost a starting job in the NFL and Ryan. Tannehill cashed it in for one hundred million dollars now. That happened in two. Damn Games to God's where where and who knows how healthy Mariota is in either of those games right because he's always a little bit broken and who knows what it is that the reason is that. He scored zero points in his last game. They beat sixteen nothing at Denver. And then the next thing you know it's gone and Mariota's time in Tennessee is gone and next thing you know he can't get a starting. He's Antenna Hills position now where he's choosing the place. Hey maybe I can go there and I can beat out. Derek Carr and Tannahill arrives in a position as you mentioned where he starting with. The titans are saying no to Tom Brady because they love what Ryan did for them. Last year during the regular season and I also was reading some interesting stats with data hill. That Derrick Henry. The running game really started opened up once. Tannehill became the quarterback. But and that's where Derrick Henry had. The bulk of his yards went. Tannehill was behind center. Dan That's funny it's the NFL right. Where the door closes for one guy and Ryan Tannehill who it looked like? Who was the backup? He leads one hundred and twenty million dollar contract. They were two and two and variable wasn't going to make that move and if they win one if they don't start two and four maybe if they start three and three Tanna Hill is still sitting on the bench and to parlay that over. Mariota can't get back on the field and Mariota can't get a starting job. When going into last season any one of us would have argued coin. Flip the difference between Marietta and Tannehill. Any one of us would have said what difference does it make. Who Starts for the Tennessee? Titans they're both kind of the same quarterback there the Spiderman mean pointing at each other like. What's the difference between them? The difference between them today after two. Damn Games is one of them gets ninety one million dollars guaranteed and the other one is starting his career all over again going to Las Vegas and hoping the Derek Carr doesn't play well and it's crazy because the game before those two losses where Mariota played played awful. I just dreadful against two good defenses the bills. In the broncos he had three touchdown to know what perceptions I mean. Eighteen to twenty seven against the Falcons for three hundred yards three touchdowns no interceptions. So it's hard and that's up quick That's how crazy. Can you tell me whether you have found anywhere on the Internet? I understand that they talk to somebody with the Texans. But if you've found anywhere on the Internet where people are arguing. The Texans may did something other than something extraordinarily dumb. Like how often do you get a trade? That looks like that where everyone is saying the same damn thing. I haven't found anybody. Who's arguing on behalf of the Texans? I guess the argument is bill. O'brien they didn't get along he wasn't going to give them a long term deal and this is supposed to be the best wide receiver grant we've seen in the last fifteen years..

Kraft case puts spotlight on human trafficking
"The prostitution part. And I know that's what he's being charged with to act. Of our soliciting prostitution, but it's the story itself about human trafficking. That's going to make this really hard for the NFL just to close your eyes. And hope it goes. Well, because if you look at what medias reporting there reporting his arrests for prostitution. There's very little headline reporting about the human trafficking aspect of it. Every time looked up on our screen with ESPN is Robert Kraft misdemeanor. Does nothing and desma. This is PM. Yeah. And also seeing awesome. Good Morning, America. It's the same thing. Yeah. But so I I did a whole weekend. CNN we until Robert Kraft wants. Yeah. But them when you start talking about the warrants in the human trafficking. I bet you today. Eagles start here. More human trafficking that they will be nice not because I wanna see Robert Kraft Guinea, more Trump. That's the story because that's the story right excuse meals. Egypt. Jeff Darlington says that even if the law isn't going to run down Bob Kraft that maybe the NFL is going to
Robert Kraft could face disciplinary action from NFL after prostitution charge
"NFL the story Mike that we're keeping our eyes on the last day and going into our second day here in that is regarding what has happened with Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots as reported by SPN Robert Kraft is facing charges of misdemeanor solicitation of prostitute. After he was twice videotape paying for sex act at an illicit massage parlor in Florida on Friday, a craft who sivy seventy years of age was one of twenty five people involved in the alleged solicitation at the orchids of. Asia day spa in Jupiter Florida craft has denied any wrongdoing. The potential charges come amid a widespread crackdown on sex trafficking in Florida from Palm Beach to Orlando hundreds of arrest warrants have been issued in recent days as a result of a six month investigation and more are expected. So my initial reaction to this story, Mike is I think about Robert Kraft at age seventy seven, and I think about other owners that have put themselves in this in this very precarious situation. Whether it's deals with drugs with it deals with stories like Robert Kraft in the thing that resonates with me. The most is no matter how much money and how much privilege that you have. You are not above the law. And we know that there are circumstances that were a sports figure or someone that has power and money can be able to overcome things we have seen this in sports entertainment for generations with the point is. Is that doesn't make it? Right. And what's happening here is not necessarily slings arrows at the patriots or Tom Brady or their championship legacy because it's not about football. It's not about what's on the field. It's about an owner that has been charged with doing something selfish something to satisfy himself on several occasions on videotape as well, by the way. And I just it just makes the NFL look bad and makes the the patriots organization look bad because he's the face of it someone who's fighting Roger Goodell back and forth about the bounty gate, and this, you know, or or, you know, all the issues that's going on with the patriots. Deflategate. Bottom line is. And is that at seventy seven you gotta realize your public figure what you're doing was wrong. I mean, you you summed it up perfectly right there Jay hood is that you know, the fact that Robert Kraft is the owner of the New England Patriots. He is, you know, the guy responsible for Bill Belichick and also Tom Brady and all the players coming in the signing. The check everything you gotta realize it just because you are an owner, and you have googled and Google's of money does not mean, you can get away with whatever you want. And the fact that there's you know, allegedly to videos, Mr. Kraft's at this at this spa. It doesn't look good for him. It doesn't look good for New England Patriots. And I can. Yeah. I'm anxious is anxious to see how Roger Goodell in the NFL are going to handle this once everything is done legally and the legal system. Besides. What direction they're going to go with things what Goodell is going to do as far as a punishment for Robert Kraft? Let's go to Ryan Smith. He does a great job on the legal side of things we see them when outside the lines all the time. Ryan Smith talking about Robert Kraft's legal defense. There has to be some sort of agreement for this to be something that he can be convicted on and not only that there has to be some sort of consent. He says this was a consensual sexual act, then he will not be convicted on then that becomes his defense. So maybe what's being set year is despite what they feel police that they have in evidence. Bob Kraft might be saying this is a consensual act. Of course, we don't know yet. But that would be one of the biggest defenses to this chart. Also, some thoughts from Adam Schefter talking about how from the NFL standpoint. How craps got the deal with the NFL consequences? No matter. What happens legally is in all probability going to have to take action. Because the league is talk about Tommy time. Again, anybody who brings unwanted attention to the NFL which with this would be qualified as would be subjected discipline? Now, you're talking about a man was billions of dollars morning not a factor in terms of what do we could do to discipline them in terms of the penalty time away from an inordinate? Jason ate lunch would be something that is going to have to look at. Also, Jeff Darlington had some thoughts as well. And this is an interesting thought here from Jeff talking about how crafters involved with solicitation, necessarily trafficking. Robert Kraft is not being charged with anything to do with human trafficking. At this point. It is solicitation of prostitution. It is a misdemeanor. So right now, we're talking about misdemeanors as it pertains Robert Kraft, again, an incredibly uncomfortable conversation, but one where we need to make clear delineations. Is from Jeff Darlington. Mike, not not uncomfortable for me. I don't know about you not uncomfortable. Found uncomfortable because because once again. No matter how much you make and how how much generational wealth. You have. You are a face of a franchise, and you don't have the wherewithal to understand that because you public face. Everyone knows who you are that you figured that you want to do something because you have the privilege to do. So you think you can just go into a place like this this orchids of Asia's day spa. And do what you like. And that doesn't work that way. No matter how much money you have money will only take you so far. And again, I mean, you know. This is a step by step process on how everything's going to be done. And I'm just curious on what Mr. Kraft's halfses has to say. I mean, I know they you know, they released a statement yesterday. You know, denying that they've done anything wrong and stuff. But at some point, you know, a statement only go so far. So I wanna hear, you know, just just as simple thoughts from Mr. Kraft's. I'm being in this situation. I mean, you know, I is he embarrassed by it. I mean is he mad? I mean, just why why why I if the video turns out to be true that he's under twice. Why why was he even there? I mean, there's just so many questions that remain answered that likely Mr. craft is the only one that can answer Dickerson and hood on ESPN radio and ESPN app. If you're looking for what's happening with Robert Kraft is not a comfortable for you. Not to talk about you know, some comfortable was uncomfortable with sex trafficking. That's uncomfortable. And that's what's unfortunate as the store. Says the SPN dot com. The potential charges come amid a widespread crackdown on sex trafficking in Florida from Palm Beach Orlando you, and I'm not saying that he was involved in that. But he's, but he's part of on this list of people that were part of of the this misdemeanor that he's been charged with solicitation of prostitution. So that actually is more of a broader conversation that was happening Robert Kraft because it's not like we haven't seen owners put themselves in a in a bad light for the organization because you being in Indianapolis representing ten seventy in Indianapolis, you have covered Jim Irsay the owner of the colts going through sobriety tests and drugs and driving. While intoxicated. That was quite a story for you to cover back and fourteen. It was definitely it was it was a huge story. I mean with the earth say, you know, you know, having to get some counseling done and everything I mean, you know, I it wasn't about the story. Didn't go from. It wasn't just Jim earth. The owner of the Indianapolis Colts jimmer say the person, you know, could he overcome, you know, the issues he was dealing with the person would he, you know, stick, you know, be able to not be able to avoid going down that path to get down the road, which, you know, all indications are he's been fine since then I mean, the NFL handed down the suspension, but I will tell you now once this happened in the March of two thousand and fourteen nothing was resolved for the NFL until September wants Jim Irsays legal case guide done, but up at debt does that would six five six months of it. That's all that was talked about. It was not about Andrew lucked the football player and the colts, you know, continuing to build on their success there eleven and five the from two thousand thirteen it was all about Jim mercy. And that I expect the same thing that happened in New England is not going to be about Tom Brady and Bill Belichick relationship is gonna retire would not it's going to be all about. Robert Kraft, and what happened? Earlier
"jeff darlington" Discussed on Get Up!
"Back up Saturday. It is the pro football hall of fame enshrinement ceremony on ESPN the class of two thousand eighteen including Randy moss Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher, Brian Dawkins and others. Saturday seventies turn on the ESPN app as well. So you can watch from anywhere. You may be nice little bit of Andrew luck there as we came out as bringing some other football news this morning as well news from around the world with sports. Let's bring in Jeff Darlington or NFL insider because Jeff you at the colts training camp earlier this week at anything. Everyone wants to know how Andrew luck looks as he works his way back for the first time and what feels like a longtime. What did you say he looked uninhibited? He looked like he could do everything that he was able to do before this shoulder shoulder surgery impacted him a few years ago. Now I went in there very skeptical because we heard all these optimistic things coming out of camp a year ago when when the coaches all said, hey, he's coming along. He's gonna be okay. We know how that ended up. So going into that facility in watching Andrew luck, throw you. You never would have guessed that he was doing with this injury at all. He had velocity on all this throws short intermediary in deep. He was throwing balls all over the field, Ryan Kelly. His center actually was telling me that he feels like luck came in as physically imposing as he remembers seeing him head coach, Frank Reich did tell me that he still will continue to give a day off to look every few days. Let him rest that shoulder, but it's not necessarily about the injury of self. It's more about the fact that they're trying to make sure that they let him get back into football shape without exposing that shoulder to too much work. But by all means greenie, I think that look is on track and I'm more convinced now than I certainly was before I watched him in person, he's on track to have what should be a comeback year and tech. Let's talk to you about that because again, you can relate to this having had a variety of injuries and your career. I'm always told by athletes at this one thing to get the physical part of it back, but the mental part of it sometimes the harder part to get back. Yeah, it's huge. I mean, this is a guy who hasn't gotten hit. And over year he hasn't had to make that tough throw in over a year. So practice. The speed is totally different. I can take batting practice all day long and say, yeah, my wrist feels fine. But when you got ninety seven on your hands, can you drop the head? And I think what Andrew luck is going to see is he's going to probably have some bumps in the road in preseason and most quarterbacks take it easy and preseason, you know, have a few series here and there I wanna see, Andrew lucked play a lot in preseason because he's got to prove that he can mentally get over those humps we had David Shaw has coach at Stanford on this show just the other day, and he was talking about how Andrew luck who spent a lot of time at Stanford in the off season. Rehabbing is finally back in a mental space where he's feeling more comfortable. You're.

"Jeff darlington is with the panthers so jeff was the status of newton shoulder as he begins his first official practice later today we'll suzy the status in the word is limited the coach ron rivera making clear that he doesn't expect camden to be a full participant on the first day of training camp they will kick off today at six thirty pm and it is going to be very interesting to see what newton can do out there keep in mind that he had that surgery on most thirtieth but he didn't throw a pass until a month ago to the day today and really did wound up having his private camp with his wide receivers in baltimore under amorphoussilicon sylvia's put the coaching staff really hasn't had much of a chance to evaluate that surgically repaired throwing shoulder since is don't be very interesting because newton is one of the hardest throwing passers in the nfl so i'm i'm excited to see what he can do later on tonight and we know that this team real focus is trying to protect him better so how are they going to alter the offense to do that get the ball out of his hand suzy right that's the key here that's the reason why they drafted some playmakers christian mccaffrey and curtis samuel too powerful explosive running backs it's also the reason why they signed ryan khalil and free agency i think this is all about making sure that newton can get the body's hands more often rivera said he went back in watch tape from the past three years and the recipe for success every time who's running the ball and making sure that they do have balanced offense.
