"Insider, Jeremy Fowler, who will join us 15 minutes from now that will include our man out in Vegas, Doug because Syrian who will join us in about 45 minutes give you his three big plays Mehlman. How did he do last week two and 12 and one lost his first game. Tough loss at U Mass getting all those points. Had a shot to win. That game was hanging on hanging on it at the end. Got the loss, but he came back with a real good, quick Syracuse over Ohio and finished off on Monday night with his best better the week which he told us it was his best bet. Oh, miss over Louisville, and that improved defensively by Calvert Hall's own Chance. Campbell did a nice job was flying all over the place. Exactly. So, Yeah, Nice two and one start for Doug Kazarian. You know you mentioned you, Mass. This makes me think of a conversation I was having with a friend of mine in Connecticut this week. So, you mass college football independent, no real home. They're FBs level. They just tour around the country and get blasted week after week, right? I hate to see this, but UConn is becoming you mess. Uh, no conference affiliation anymore, right? The school kind of Buried the football program when they pulled them out of the Americans so that they could join the Big East in basketball made football, which made sense for basketball. I get it made football and independent, and now the Huskies travel around the country. Getting pummeled week after week and they get pummeled at home, too. And they will against Purdue today is just, you know, to the point where Randy Ed Solden said he was going to retire at the end of the season. Which administration said you know what Now you just We'll just go ahead and send you home now. After two games, the second Randy Edsall, uh Stint did not go as well as the first, which included a Fiesta Bowl matchup against Oklahoma before he left and went to Maryland and then ended up going back to Connecticut. But it's um It's been ugly at Yukon. You know, I hate to see that program, which we saw him build, frankly, from the FCS level, up to the FBS level to a to a big time bowl game. It is becoming U mass and in the administration. Can only really look in the mirror if they want to understand why and how that's happening. Yeah, we could form a conference story with Connecticut, U Mass maybe put Kansas in their Vanderbilt We could we could, we could. We could find a conference and maybe intriguing and give these like these teams a chance to maybe win some work football games and are winning now, Dari, but it ties into this whole Kansas and the Big eight. And the big 12. Whatever you want to call this conference, and you said you grew up with it. I've looked at it something historically great football games are played with this conference. And now where we Where do we see it? As of today, you know, it has changed so much. I mean, my goodness. When I was growing up in the eighties and then you know, early nineties before the big 12 happened. You had the great Oklahoma Nebraska rivalry. Those, too, by the way playing Norman next week, although it won't be like it used to be with the Husker program, where it is You know, Nebraska. We saw Colorado rise in that thing. Missouri, Missouri, Iowa State Oklahoma State, You know, I mean, it was. It was a Kansas State's incredible rise. I still consider the job. Bill Snyder did building that program the greatest single coaching job in the history of college football. Because it lasted. It stood the test of time when he left. It crashed under Ron Prince. Then he came back and got it back again. I mean, it was a It is a really, really proud conference, and then it became the big 12, and that's certainly didn't hurt anything. But with Oklahoma and Texas leaving for the SEC, it does hurt it. To the point where people thought the big 12 was going to crash and burn. It was going to dissolve. No way. Bob Bulls because you know could keep this thing alive the commissioner, but he has And he has because yesterday it became official when the eight remaining big 12 schools said Yes, unanimously. We want BYU and we want Houston and we want you Cfn. We want Cincinnati to come into this league. Forming what will be a 12 team league again with, I think for fantastic additions. Certainly the top three editions out of the American with Houston, UCF and Cincinnati. Luke Fickell has that football program absolutely rolling right now and A BYU program. That is a national name with a large fan base. You know, there's no question BYU has a large Yeah. The Church of Latter Day Saints 14 15 million strong. There are a lot of people that love BYU athletics. They bring a great, you know, historically good program in in football, basketball programs good good at other sports as well. I think this is a really good move for Bob Bowlsby and company. It's interesting to me the way he ripped the SEC and Greg's hanky for going in, as he says, grabbing Oklahoma and Texas out of its league, and I actually do believe, Greg. Thank you when he says, Look, we don't chase teams down. They come to us. We didn't go to them. They came to us. And then Bob Bowlsby turns around and he goes to the American and says, I'm going to take your three best programs, but he Probably figured out a little bit too late. Like only the strong survive right. It's survival of the fittest. You want to survive as a league, you're going to have to go out and make something happen. And I think props to him. He made something happen and what's really interesting mail. You know, BYU comes in and 23 the other three out of the American In 24. There is talk that the American could negotiate with Houston, UCF, and since he and come in, they could go into the big 12 early. Well, Oklahoma, Texas are contractually bound, at least at this particular moment to stay in the big 12 through the 24 season, so you could have a year or two of a 14 team league that includes Oklahoma and Texas, which will be awfully fun to watch.

"Spent a week in self quarantine is part of the NFL's covert 19 protocols. Jeremy Fowler on SportsCenter. They're not concerned at all as long as tomorrow goes well because he'll get his test in the morning. Get the results. They expected to be negative. Then help take that practice field for the walk through the Tom unmentioned, and then he'll be activated. Everybody feels good about this plan, and the Steelers are not panicking about rather's burger being at home because he's missed many practices in the past because of injuries rest, whatever, but they do want to get him some work so he'll take the field. I'll get him a part of the game plan. He'll probably make a few throws with his teammates just to get back into rhythm, But from everything I've heard this week, there is no hard contingency right now. It's Big Ben all the way to the Browns have placed offensive lineman Chris Hubbard on the covert 19, lest after shutting down their facility and delaying practice to do contact, tracing hover will miss Sunday's game against the Texans for Dolphins assistance will miss Sunday's game against the Chargers because of covert 19 protocols. Linebacker Calvin Noi, defensive tackle Christian Wilkins and reserve receiver Matt Cole went on the covert 19 list Thursday might also miss that kick off Dan Graziano. Contingency plans for the league of the schedule doesn't play out. Would fully this year is the first year they're supposed to be seven playoff teams per conference. That's according to the new C B A. But the owners voted yesterday on a contingency plan that would expand that to eight teams per conference if they cannot get all of the playoff relevant games played. In the time frame that they have plant. The league says it's still focused on getting its entire schedule played in the original 17 week framework and starting the playoffs on time. If they can't do that, there's some discussion about adding an 18th week and dumping some postpone games into that. If that also doesn't cover it, and there are playing their games unplayed that have an effect on who makes the playoffs and what the seating is in the playoffs. Then they would expand the postseason to eight teams per conference to make sure help make up for the discrepancies that that would bring about a Giants wide receiver. Golden Tate apologize for nowt Boards, which was caught on camera took full responsibility for Self described unacceptable behavior that got him Benj for last week's game against Washington. Tate on If he was actually trying tow force a trade before the deadline. Now, I would say I was trying to get traded. I love this organization.

"Time Run Update from Gruber Law OFFICES one Call that's all Sports desk. Here's Brian D. We are five weeks into the NFL season and covert 19 has already caused him pretty serious issues. The schedule has been significantly shuffled one team. The Tennessee Titans is work through a large outbreak within its organization, and players are on the league continue to test positive with some regularity. Packers kicker Mason Crosby was one of those players back at the beginning of training camp. He says that he and other players are on the league, though, knew what they were signing up for going in. We can't eliminate risk you can't eliminate risk on the football field for injury can't eliminate the risk of being exposed from a from a pandemic. You know a virus, but We can mitigate it as much as possible, and that's that's honestly I think the goal and all we can hope to do. That's not to say that Crosby does not have concerns going forward. I will send my only concern is later on. Bye weeks. They're all washed up. All used up. No. What is that gonna look like if you know team has positive tests on Saturday, and there's no way to postpone a reschedule or throw the you know. Throw the bye week on there. Now those are those are going to be the unique situation that happened later on here for sure. The Packers Picker was a guest on M. J. 2021. He and his team mates back in action Sunday visiting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"Hopefully keeping you somewhat entertained occupied on a Saturday at the house if that's where you are like most of us we're always presented by the way by progressive insurance but we think we may have Jeremy Fowler NFL insider coming out with us in just a minute but up at I've got something melamed ask you and ensure for okay Jeremy's here so I'm gonna save you and I'm not gonna ask you this was something I noticed in your draft with Todd were you each took twenty two players back and forth and and jumped out to me jumped out to me but I'm gonna hit you with that in about fifteen minutes okay gotcha all right Jeremy Fowler ESPN NFL insider with us right now is it is time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless what's going on Jimmy we abandoning us pass interference review already wasn't it such a hit my goodness what went into the decision it looks like to to abandon ship on this thing well that that we're going to do that there are about four weeks I mean it does total frustration from everybody involved I I truly believe in I was actually told us that the owners it sort of gave the coaches a Mulligan for your like local pastor but we don't like it and so now you're saying that that you know they're very stringent and how that year and a lot of the needed some tweaking at the very least and here we are go back to free agency Jim we haven't had much happened yeah that was the Brandin cooks trade with LA rams to Houston but Clowney today being cloudy still out there you'd mentioned last week Cleveland Browns that discussions were cloudy is it more likely he re signed with Seattle right now or you end up elsewhere Paul Miller I think Seattle now on the outside looking in you know early on they want to re sign him and then made an offer it just wasn't what Clowney wanted and they were willing to go up my understanding of the Seattle it's probably slim to none at this point for them Cleveland I'm told got very close probably a week and a half to two weeks ago around the time they signed Adrian Clayborn for pass rushing depth and so you know they're looking at it but that you know they have a price too it's just the problem is fundamentally nobody wants to go to Tennessee where he wanted to be I think Tennessee still in it but they're you know they're they're not gonna go crazy yet this is a chance of it gets done before the draft I would look at Tennessee as an option I think Cleveland will probably circle back from what I've gathered but if there's no major leads right now he can wait till after the draft because at this point you're not gonna get anything close to what he wants and he doesn't want to settle for thirteen or fourteen ninety years so it's just it's not a sticking point NFL insider Jeremy Feller with historian meli S. P. N. radio ESPN app you mentioned the rams a minute ago course head scratcher too many trading Brandin cooks and props to Houston for forgetting a receiver after the head scratcher they pulled at least initially a head scratcher with new copies to Arizona you know the rams have all of this dead cap money now just sitting there with cooks and girly and you're taking the weapons away from Jared Goff they've invested so heavily at what is the reaction around the league that you've talked to from those you talk to about the rams right now right well yes this is the reaction is that they went all in on players like Jalen Ramsey given a pick and they had about seven or eight players that have huge contract and then you know they they were due to try to shed some of the rest of the way it goes when you overpay for a lot of players within a short two to three year period like they did and the bill is due and so you look at forty plus million of that money like you mentioned I had to get out from under some contractors the coach is really just a financial planner I was told around the start of creative and they weren't going to trade him or at least in that plant at the time it was only a month later they got a decent deal format it their plan is we have to stick around pick two third round picks they can go get some playmaking help at a much cheaper rate to try to help out you know and they like to be the tide and the lan and grouper concourses relation with your golf but I you know often help after losing cooking girly and I do expect him back and the pieces that later this month Jammu have to your dial and all the stuff we have to have you chime in on to as well revised talking to us but what you're hearing about two in relationship to Miami and Justin Bieber quarterback Oregon what's the latest on all the quarterback talk in the draft him I'm a germaphobe well my understanding is that it was going into the draft realizing that the teams that need quarterbacks are probably going to address that that he feels like he's currently in the minutes there so I think most people are only still expected to be a top ten pick there's there's still that concern I've talked to wanted to ask about this is he a three to five year choir you know if you're one contract guy because the you know the interest on up where you know that the the body breaks down if that's a concern fair or not now you have done everything possible to be transparent and these teams love these workout videos in the medical re check that everything sounds great that's not what you're doing right now is not the issue at all it is he going to last for you if you invest a top five thought that they could not that's a legitimate concern for the human leech do you believe Jeremy that if the Miami Dolphins pass on to us that you can lock him into the LA Chargers I would go for a deadlock in but I think I I think they would rival the trigger if I did that yeah that would be my guess that you know that they only cover too so I I do expect them to at the end of the day to get a quarterback and you know what you thought a lot about your love it is indicated that I talked to Matt wells the Texas tech coach with his former coach and recruiting Utah stated seven different head coaches and I thought I could have called in the last five days alone about your love he said it's really starting to heat up repeatedly during the recon work you have no other changes but this is a guide at something look at as a second round pick some people kind of the best wow Jeffrey Fowler NFL insider here go back to to a for just a second or really any of the top level quarterbacks that we may be talking about the more I read to you you hear about all to it maybe dropping whatever I was reading up a couple of blocks concerning the patriots in this weather picking at twenty three maybe that I can have to give up the farm and point to what in that system could be funded yeah yeah I mean is there yes are we looking at the patriots consist really kids first of all trades here picking twenty three and not yet thirty two but but is it are we looking at a potential patriots move up situation could we see two other if you have a given option slip though that that the brother not gonna jump from twenty three to five you know the that but it looked at the reason why I think you could slip as I've talked to teams taken later in the first round or even the early second round there they didn't have a leased out Justin Herbert but they did to us just because it could slip because of this campaign so look for it in there is not comfortable with the lasting power here now to get the likely but if it does happen New England could slip and I think it would have to be at least in the somewhere in the mid teens to kind of make that sort of move in al Qaeda they they value the draft capital there but I know nothing of it looking hardcore taxes across the board they've been pretty involved admission Jordan Lebanon because of the recon work on and from what I've heard a lot of other guys I think they're going to leave the exhaust their options but they're going to be smart about it yeah chat still miss still there are you know how they feel about him in relation to these young quarterbacks but we're talking will show that cam Newton Jeremy was Hamma Andy Dalton any update on Janice Winston anything new on the quarterbacks are still out there so we ended on the docket he is the battle of talk to multiple things about him but it's just nothing came about and you know that the ratings now waiting for him to be released to potentially jump on him and that would be a poster of conversation most likely I I've I've heard from multiple people to Janice Winston is in that same boat about having to wait till after the draft at this point because teams that they're gonna bring in a first round pick I take a quarterback you know that they don't necessarily need a James went to particular charges because you have Tyrod Taylor there but if you don't get the guy you want you have cameras you have James you have options that you could you could think answer pretty quickly so that I think it will it will shake out that's why restoring a stagnation point right now but but things will heat up closer to after the draft for sure right I do not know the home some are pretty dull but it might it be as a true free agent Jeremy Fowler with us before let you go women do if they haven't already Windu conversation start about plans in case the NFL season cannot go on time as they obviously hope will well at the NFL from my understanding is trying to take having a face value of knowing that this is the ever evolving situation hourly daily and so you know they're not trying to look too far ahead just yet you know I talked to somebody late last night he said look we've started playing it happens even but we're not gonna put anybody in harm's way we're gonna make sure that but they haven't even pulled out mini camp at this point which in June people are forgetting about the offseason stuff they have not cancelled those other than to say right now you have to be virtual training camp in the building can't have people there that are but they haven't you know they looked as far as you know people are wanting to get a more clarity on the field for very good reasons but the league just is not there yet you know I I bill bill have contingency plans that they want to get to the draft first they really are the rest of the office and work on their going to kind of take a chunk by chunk of my understanding before I let you go German a little fun who what's your favorite new uniforms let's see if falcon yeah but it's really right I mean that's the Browns the bramble come with improvements you know I I wrote it I think a lot of your relatives even when compared to the universe I'm gonna I like the box if you like the pure one yeah

Where Does Cam Newton Go From Here?
"Jeremy the first line of your story is. He can't go out like this. It's kind of crazy to me that that is even being said about Cam Cam Newton in the first place. If you look at the situation with the Carolina Panthers and Cam Newton a guy that called Superman of former. MVP It is just hard to make sense ESPN NFL writer. Jeremy Fowler has spent the last few weeks reporting on Cam Newton's future going into the season of you to tell me that Cam Newton would potentially be on the way out of Carolina and there will be this big mess I would not by any stretch have believed you before we get into the confluence of factors that led us to this moment. Explain why it's so unusual to even be having a conversation like this about a quarterback like Newton will mean. It is crazy because he changed the game game. This is a guy that was bred to be a winner from his days at Auburn he won the national championship number. One overall pick set rookie records Kurds for total yards on winning. MVP in two thousand fifteen three different seasons of ten or more wins. Everything was lined up for this guy to be a top five top top ten quarterback for the next fifteen twenty years. Just terrible lineup. What an improvisational improvisational play by CAM? Newton he altered the way. We look at the style of the quarterback position. Because we've seen running quarterbacks before but this is a guy. I was flipping into the end zone quarterback. He's making the superman sign with his arms after scoring and and you know he was Such an imposing figure that he looked like a combination of a pass rusher linebacker and a running back coming at you full speed and the whole the mack truck. That was something ended. The League really hadn't seen before goodness isn't this is the NFL. You're not supposed to be able to do that. And then there was the off field appeal. This is a guy who would show up to. His press. Conference was a fashion show. He's got the bedazzled hats glasses being able to be Orally gifted. There's something that I think. A master to a degree. I mean this is a guy that we couldn't take our eyes off of whether whether he was on the field or do you think his style of football in some ways impacted his body in a way that led us to this point it has to be a factor. I mean we're talking about a guy who's taken eleven hundred plus hit since two thousand eleven and more than half of those have been in the last four years since around two thousand fifteen. That's more than Russell Wilson. More than any other guy. Things have piled up on them as a result he was all about power shear power that was part of what made him so great. He did bulldoze you in the open field. He could run for the thirty yards and so just. The pounding as a result has clearly affected where areas now so the first few years of camps career sort of builds towards this magical season in two thousand fifteen. He's the MVP and it all leads up to the Super Bowl and what should have been a high point for him ended up being a low one the pants lose and perhaps unfairly the the indelible memory for a lot of people is the fumble. He failed to recover. Do you think that game changed perceptions of him roll. It stripped him of his invincibility. One one personnel told me the Denver took his Superman Cape. They took it away and he was never the same after that. And that's probably unfair because it's one game on the the biggest stage but you know. Denver played a certain way where they kept hitting them. The seven six rushing four-ball comes out of the hands on the ground still on the ground picked up by the yard line. And since then cam sense of some really good moments but it's been a little hit or miss even on the field when he is in the lineup and so it was a turning point for a career that was at a wildly high trajectory at that point you're talking about not only an MVP season but he could get into the end zone. Whenever he wanted that year it was just? He played a pretty much flawless season. And then it all SORTA changed after that game so that super bowl will is kind of a turning point for Cam than what happened last season in two thousand eighteen well last season he was a potential. MVP candidate after the first eight or so weeks. The panthers are sitting at six and two Newton looks great. He's got nineteen total touchdowns you know he's rushing but he's also being patient the pocket making throws so this was a team That was on the rise and was sort of recapturing. Maybe the magic. They had a couple years earlier for that. Super Bowl run so it was nothing but promising at that point an annual in early Donovan. Where you go to Pittsburgh you go to Heinz field? You're thinking this'll be another turning point for your season and then TJ comes the blindside. He knocks Cam. Newton he runs right into that right right shoulder into the turf and he had already been on the injury report with a shoulder injury. They didn't think it was serious at that time but watts shot clearly reaggravated things to the point where by by the end of the year he was struggling to throw the ball. Forty forty five yards. I mean it was pretty ugly out there right. I mean he wasn't pulled but I remember number. They stopped using him for Hail Marys I N. It became apparent that something was deeply wrong. Throw by CAM. It didn't reach. The end zone landed fifteen yards short of the goal line. This is a guy that could throw sixty five yards on a rope. And so they're taking them out putting Taylor Heinecke of all people to throw a deep ball. I mean there couldn't have been a deeper foreshadow for maybe the problems that were rising with Cam Newton's future alright so he ends up shutting it down for the last two games of that twenty eighteen season and in the off season. He has some shoulder surgery but by the time this season starts it seems like he has recovered and things are looking optimistic again for Cham. How does the twenty nineteen season actually began for him throwing the ball? He looked pretty tentative. No touchdown passes in the first two weeks. He didn't really look as comfortable normally. Does you know that you can win games with them but certainly not an MVP level that. They're there used to so after the panthers second game against the Bucks. It's revealed that Cam has some kind of foot injury but nobody really knows what's going on right. There's a lot of mystery around the injury and all of a sudden campaigns out this fifteen minute youtube video go here we are just record. I want to be brutally honest. The video was him. Basically Chilin in a hat and glasses passes and he's in like this leather black chair and he opens up about his foot injury as I'm about to jog around realize okay. Uh I feel like in the game but it's like something missing. There was a bit bizarre. But it's it. It was good that he came on spoke about it. And try to provide some clarity and in that video basically said got hurt. preseason hurt the foot against the Patriots this is where I got him away because automatically. I got play we go. I can't let fans down. He basically told coaches. Hey I'm good I'm all good. You know I'm Superman. I can continue to play. And then once week two-headed reaggravated the injury. What happened offended with this footage metatarsal bones and they separate from the base of the? That's a list rank injury but if it's a really bad separation or some sort of break then usually need surgery. Cam has not had that yet which pretends everybody to believe. He's got a sprain but a pretty bad one just hasn't healed yet but he doesn't want to have surgery. I'm able to get the time off for me to. He'll get back to one hundred percent then. I have no doubt in my mind everything everything that we won't as a team can still be accomplished. He made clear in the video that they need to go away and get back to what I was. and that's significant anytime. A player says that that means they're out that doesn't mean they're going to rush back to play and so he basically new I think at that point I was GonNa shut it down

And that's probably unfair as it's one game on the biggest stage but you know Denver played them a certain way where they kept hitting them. The seven secs comes out of the hands on the ground and still on the ground picked up by. Jj Line and since then came sense of some really good moments elements. But it's been a little hit or miss even on the field when he is in the lineup and so it was a turning point for a career that was at a wildly high trajectory. At that point you know you're talking about not only MVP season but he could get into the end zone. Whenever he wanted that year? It was just. He played a pretty much flawless season. And then and it also changed after that game so that super bowl is kind of a turning point for Cam than what happened last season in two thousand eighteen last season he was a potential. MVP candidate after the first eight or so weeks. The panthers are sitting at six into Newton. Looks Great Nineteen total touchdowns. You know he's rushing but he's also being patient in the pocket making throws so. This was a team that was on the rise and was sort of Recapturing maybe the magic. They had a couple of years earlier for that Super Super Bowl run so it was nothing but promising at that point an annual in early November. You go to Pittsburgh go to Heinz field. You're thinking this'll be another turning point for your season and then Tj Awa- comes off the blindside. He knocks Cam Newton. He runs right into that right shoulder into the turf he had already been on the injury report with a shoulder injury. They didn't think of a series of that time but watts shot clearly reaggravated things to the point where by the end of the year. He was struggling to throw the ball. Forty forty five yards. It was pretty ugly out there right. I mean he wasn't pulled but I remember. They stopped using him for Hail Marys N. It became apparent that something was deeply wrong saw. I saw that throw by CAM it. It didn't reach the end zone. landed a good fifteen yards short of the goal line. This is a guy that could throw sixty five yards on a rope and so they're taking them out and put Taylor Heinecke of all people to throw a deep ball. I mean you know. There couldn't have been a deeper foreshadow for maybe the problems that were rising with Cam Newton's future all right so he ends up shutting it down for the last two games of that two thousand eighteen season and in the off season as in he has some shoulder surgery but by the time this season starts it seems like he has recovered and things are looking optimistic again for Cham. How does the twenty nine thousand nine season actually begin for him? Throwing the ball. He looked pretty. Tentative no touchdown passes in the first two weeks he didn't really look as comfortable as he normally. Does you that. You can win games with them but certainly not an MVP level that they're used to so after the panthers second game against the Bucks it's revealed that Cam has some kind of foot foot injury but nobody really knows what's going on right. There's a lot of mystery around the injury and then all of a sudden can't puts out this fifteen minute youtube video here. We go here we we are just record. I want to be brutally honest. The video Was Him basically chillan in a hat and glasses. And he's in like this leather black chair. He opens up about his foot injury. As I'm about to jog dog around. I realize I feel like I'm in the game but it's like something. Something's missing bizarre. But it's it was good that he came on spoke about it and try to provide some clarity and in that video he basically said got hurt in the preseason Kurt the foot against the Patriots this is where I got him away because automatically. I thought I got play we. I can't let my fans down. He basically told coaches. Hey I'm good I'm all good. You know I'm Superman I can. I can continue to play and then once we to hit he reaggravated injury injury. What happened is with his foot? Is You have metatarsal bones. And they separate from the base of the FA. That's a list rank injury but if it's a really bad separation or some sort of break than usually need surgery cam has not had that yet which pretends everybody to believe that. He's got a sprain but a pretty really bad one and it just hasn't healed yet but he doesn't want to have surgery if I'm able to get the time all for me to heal and get back to a one hundred percent is it. Then I have no doubt in my mind everything that we won't as a team can still be accomplished. He made clear in the video that I need to go away and get back to what I was. And that's -nificant anytime a player says that that means they're out that doesn't mean they're going to rush back to play and so he basically new I think at that point I was GonNa shut it down

Kevin Colbert saying Rothlisberger is the unquestioned leader of the locker room who has the freedom to publicly criticize teammates if he sees fit quote. He's the elder statesman in the Super Bowl winner of our players were smart. They'd listen to him because he's been there. He's done it. He can tell them. No guys. What you're doing is. Or is not good enough to do this. And with his now being the window for franchisees tagging. Those Steelers making you know, may will not be using the tag on Libyan bell ESPN Steelers reporter, Jeremy Fowler. Chemical was very clear that they simply can't afford it. You know, we're not gonna mess with the number that would be fourteen point five million dollars on the transition tag. And at least seventeen million dollars on franchise tag. Typically, why not try to work on maybe a sign and trade. I'm a transition tacky said. He laid out. They have a system where next year they can get a compensatory pick in two thousand twenty with could be as a third round pick. That is the state and they liked the production of James Caan pro bowler rookie, Jalen Samuelson. They feel like they're a good place. Bill is a great player. We'll consider him in the future, which is unlikely to him come back, but it simply something they can't afford. Bottomline, bell will be an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year for losing bell. The team will receive a compensatory pick to the guy's a PTI. Steelers GM, Kevin Colbert said the club will not slap the franchise tag on bell. And will simply let him walk into free agency word is he wants in the neighborhood of fifty million dollars for the first two years after sitting out an entire season. Tony, do you think Bill will ultimately get what he wants? There is going to be a frenzy for him because he's healthy. He sat a whole year and he's raring to go. And I understand that fifty million for two I don't think. So I mean the Todd Gurley ranges fifteen million dollars a year. Remember you looking at maybe a four year deal, and they're gonna front loading signing bonus. I'm saying to you that Todd Gurley whatever Ezekiel Elliott is going to get the next time or something like that. But if you're going to try to break the Bank like Manny Machado. No, I don't think he's going to get that Mike because the most replaceable skill position in all football's running back, and that's one Pittsburgh say, we're good. You can go. You know, what's been interesting Tony as NBA salaries. Despite is particularly the summer two thousand sixteen is you see so many basketball player. So I'm sorry NFL players who were just outwardly jealous. And part of these things with these holdouts, and this what I want, and I don't want to be franchise has to do with looking at their basketball brethren, but they are so replaceable in the basketball guys are not not so on Bill and Antonio Brown are great players and. Football. They are replaced, and they're gonna be replaceable by October. This was already having running back. They've they've moved from levian bell. Here's what we know to be true. There's no Emmett Smith anymore. There's nobody would attend a twelve year career is totally who who right now doesn't tend to create running back. I'm to get my year if I'm wrong, but that's why they're able to say we'll give you big money for the first year. We're not Gore's Frank. At least in years. Mike four average is like three point five yards academy. Peterson. Maybe Steelers, also noting. They will not be offering a discount in a trade to get rid of Antonio Brown.

"I mean, it's just everybody's owning a little bit of peace of this. So when it all comes down to it does Antonio Brown have a spot on this roster week one two thousand nineteen season is he is he playing for the Steelers, Jeremy. I'm going to stay no right now because you know, asking around the league talking to some folks, you know, exact general manager types, they seem to think he's going to have a small market, but a strong market and some team that to get over the top one piece away that offer a first round pick at some point. I probably be enough to do it. But you know, I mean the Steelers have to navigate that it's going to be about drug capital. They can't get what they need. But you know, I talked to in America founding this week. He he said look phone, call can just can go a long way, they common knows Brown. Really? Well, if been the other for a long time, he understand how our DRAM is coming life and really teenage years and down around different schools. And so they have connected on even level before if they can reconnect like that and figure something out. I don't think it's beyond repair. But it's getting close does I'm gonna keep going with this with your Germany in our few minutes left. Jeremy fowler. Does Mike Tomlin have a con. Tactic stench in on the table week one of the two thousand nineteen season. I with an area Asian built on to -bility. I would say so now they, you know, I don't think they would they would let it twist in the wind especially when they did win nine games. It was I guess if you're here locally, they would say the completed Astor of season, and considering the talented they had it probably is on some levels. But you know, you your kicker Lael doubt lady on Bill top team player on Ryan Shays ear probably top twenty five player. You know? He's gone. Tony imprint hotel a week. It's there there are a lot of moving parts. I wonder if the roster maybe not as talented as led to believe top bottom. Even though they have all these strengths. And so. You know, I I think they still respect the job that he did. But there are some. I mean, the defense needs more than density can't finish games at the major issue. So that doesn't clean up next year. Then it's a different conversation. But I do think every two years typically in the summer every other summer day re up his contract, you, you know, based on precedent. And you know, the ability that Tom and brings I think that will get done, but there's a lot of shakeouts and then week one whereas Levy on bell. Do you think? Ooh, I, you know, it try to transition tag or it's gonna be a big grievance. NFL PA. You're gonna have all these issues Bill could threaten to sit out again. They could try to do that try to facilitate a trade, but it just seems so complicated. So I still think the cleanest pather them. Let him go to agency. Get your Compaq their round pick, whatever it's going to be. And I'm gonna say the jets a lot of people say the colts. From what I gathered. I do not think the colts leading on bell. I think just going to be a team of ton of money that that you need to play maker. So I could see books I could be jet. So there to the last one for you week one of the two thousand nineteen season. Does Ben Rothlisberger have a local radio show that's up on the air? Week one you're saying, we'll he will he have a radio show or wool the Steelers say that's over and whatever you're making off of it or getting for your charity from it. We will cut you a check will they do that. I doubt it. I mean, just the president of poor vice league having it if they did that then that would create a whole nother power struggle that they come up with Jeremy they could come up with. However, you wanna call it that he's spending time with his family just going to tap out. He's focusing more on football. There's so many ways to handle it..

"So how does this all work? I mean, how's it? Get fixed. Right. Well, that's that's where you need some of the key locker room guys. You know, the leaders veteran to probably come together just to say that we have this seven they can't take anymore. They might need to take that the palm l'an or figure something out. But you're right. It's a weird dynamic because you know, on one side respect him. But the patience is starting to grow thin. I think they're supporting them because on some levels and some of the have to because he could very well be back here. Whether they can't work out a trade or good conversation with ownership, Mike Tomlin, they work something out. And so, you know, they certainly want to be able to work with them. But you can sense the growing frustration. There's no doubt. And a lot of the old players guys that maybe played with Brown earlier in their career now done and aren't on the team. You know, they think that there is a maybe a problem where hey the old locker room wouldn't have tolerated. This you know, we had all those, you know, those defensive leaders Troy, call them out what comes to mind Joey Puerta wants to. On the time. But those kind of figureheads where you know, grievances rare internally, and you try to work it all out. And so, you know, they point out that maybe this locker doesn't have that. I think room would disagree. And this is probably a chance for them to do something about it. But they they have a lot of cases made apologies for Brown as well. Yeah. I know of Ryan Clark, your colleague Idi SPN leaps to mind on that group as well. We had Emmanuel Sanders on NFL game day morning where he thought that that Brown's behavior in week seventeen was on tenable. But he also said that if Ben Rothlisberger spoke about him on a radio show and a passive aggressive way. Like he did about Brown and others that he would have a problem with him and would go up to him in the locker room and say that so it's all in..
"jeremy fowler" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"And for one of them gathered a lot of the team leaders have been in contact about this whole scenario and basically decided they're all going to to support them. They're prepared for what happened either way, and they want a more orderly locker room in two thousand nineteen but you know, it's it's a tough dynamic because he's very well liked despite his issues they love the way that he works. And of course, he produces. But they really liked the guy and hanging out with Brown piece of locker. He's just unreliable lost. And a lot of spots. When the seasons online we week seventeen. Jeremy? So what did happen week seventeen best? You can piece together. Well, so what I was told Brown actually was in the building on Saturday at at some point. But he was not there for the work sessions like the walk through all that. He was not a part of that he did disappear for most of that. And so remember that I've gathered, you know, he he felt underappreciated on you know, there was a flare of mid week. I don't think it was his demonstrative as as it was made out to be after seven players speaking to who witnessed thing, you know. And Ben been we're gonna Tony brand speak afterward from what I gathered. But. There are a lot of theories out there. But I still think the preventing team is on. It's a combination of under appreciation feeling maybe like a scapegoat. You know, he wasn't happy with maybe one of the criticisms from Rothlisberger earlier after week twelve in Denver game about route running things like that the emerging juju Smith Schuster, he liked, you know, they're friends, but in winning the team MVP a lot of players could do feel. They can't say for sure that they do feel like that. That's a major factor here. The emergence of juju in that team MVP that he want and also you in your piece intimate strongly. I might add that Brown's absence in week seventeen was self imposed all to point out how integral he is to shoot juju Smith Schuster success that he draws double teams that allows juju Smith Schuster to have the season that he had and he was going to show everybody that without him..

You gotta you gotta punch that that pitch up a little bit. Hey, come to us. You'll make a fortune all the money you want. You just not gonna win this year.

How's that for a pitch jets looking nicer by the second? I mean, or you hate come here. The guy who was five hundred with Matt Moore and Ryan tannehill over the last three years he beat bell. Check a couple times one time. It took a, you know, a hook and ladder and Americal. But we've got a young quarterback with a huge upside a dog on on defense in Jamal Adams who did or did not put the mascot off. Did he put the mask?

"And I will tell you the first thing they will do is they'll stop the run or do their best to stop it. Whether it's girly whether CJ engine they will force Jared Goff to beat them understanding that gives them the best chance because if they run it and use talked about their their play action passes lethal, you they have they have great great game plan of doing it. I will say this though about about the patriots one of the things that was unique for them when we played them is they had a first-half plan in a second people. Call them a judgment. They weren't adjustments. They may they may blitz. You the entire first half. They come out the second half. And they rush three and drop. It's that different. So you have to understand it's not just in game adjusts, they may have a completely different plan selling out. It really is. They are a well coached football team. Those are the things that you have to kind of the unexpected, you know, those type of things you'd better think about them because it could happen here about Darren game plan teams like a game plan per half tier? Man guarantees go. Bella check is talking about is the difference between that run that bad. That's right. And they're going to work extremely hard. All right news from one of the teams on the outside looking in this postseason press coverage from ESPN Steelers reporter, Jeremy Fowler juju. Smith Schuster said he's reached out to Antony. Oh Brown as an spoken to him yet. But points out everyone's on vacation, so communication is minimal. He said, no doubt. He expects to talk to him at some point doesn't want him traded because he makes the Steelers better. Brutal business two days after Bob Sutton's Casey's defense was unable to come up with HIV. It'll stop the AFC championship game in the defensive coordinator since two thousand thirteen was relieved of his duties chiefs defense has come under fire the past few years now back in fourteen fifteen ranked in the top ten in the league points in yards per game since then it has slowly declined from various reasons injury -cluded in twenty eight t in the chiefs D set twenty four points per game and thirty first in yards per game. And that is our jumping off point for a couple of Joe with just seeing Anderson you got the loan with Danish and a Muslim oats in there. And I thought it was really gonna get coffee. Anyway, Andy, Andy Reid has always been really protective of Sutton, even as his coordinators were going on being promoted, head coaches. He always I think took comfort in that Sutton was still there. So what is the reaction around Kansas City? You're absolutely right. Because when I called about this news yesterday before it kind of happened. It was trickling out there that he might lose his job. I talked to a source. Do you think that this is really going to have? And they didn't even want to touch it because that really just reflected the closeness of the coaching staff, even though they know it was very heartbreaking at the end of that AFC championship game. But also talked to a couple of players, and this is what they had to say. They said, I I four most wanted to emphasize that Sutton is very well liked. The defense is not hard to pick up. But as a player told me last night, you know, Sutton is very much known for his man to man coverage that is what is known for. But the problem is that when you start to have a drop in the quality of players that man to man coverage game is not necessarily working. So great..
Le'Veon Bell to report to PIttsburgh Steelers during Week 7
"Is the report from Jeremy. Fowler, that Levy on bell is holding out. Hope that team will recite them to a long term contract. Once his franchise tag is up staying away to preserve his body, but they're expecting him to report week. Seven bell is expected to report. Week, seven. The Steelers by I'm stunned, I'm stunned absolutely shocked hours. You know, less than twenty four hours removed from what we just saw from rural Thomas. And we just had a manual. He's done. He's not gonna play for the Steelers again. I mean, because we just saw the living breathing example of every single time. He, he touches the football. He's risking his long-term value, but you caught me about this Fowler interview in the interview. Bell says, it's costing me some fans of his decision to to set out. He said, a lot of people are calling me selfish, but I'm really not. I'm doing it for the guys behind me or the guys who don't value what's going on in the business of football. It's the part where he says it's costing me fans that makes me go, well, this is such a tone change from what we felt like was happening here in that. That's that's shocking. It would not. I would be less shocked if it wasn't. I mean we still have the image of Earl Thomas being carted off the field yesterday he says, he's in great shape. He says, he says that he could go out and play their tomorrow. But with Earl Thomas situation, I couldn't help. But thinking as we were listening to Emanuel and he was like, look, Earl hasn't been going to practice in Earl, hasn't been practicing with the team because Earls trying to preserve his body and all I can think about is how much of not practicing, not actually being in football shape all the time, like everyone else makes you more susceptible to injury. And maybe this is like a a almost like a warning to Levy on bell. Like, yeah, you can preserve your body all you want, but free stuff happens. And if you're not in football shape, I would think it's more likely to happen to the not

What was the level of secrecy and just keeping this bottle up for the last several days, even from the NFL what I can tell you Bob is that people even internally within Nike who you would normally expect to know about this did not necessarily know partners did not know some of the deals that huge deals with schools. These schools did not know the retail partners Dick's sporting goods footlocker, those that have the largest accounts that sell hundreds of millions of dollars of Nike shoes. Did not know.
