What's the latest on Deshaun Watson situation with Houston Texans?
"Swaggie. Do we have six. More weeks of a standoff between watson and the texans listen gina texas keep. They don't want to acknowledge that today. I'm growled say this going to be six weeks. They don't want to acknowledge the keep telling them is going to design this groundhog for the people that in the back secondly look he goes on behind if they keep playing games but they don't won't acknowledge it. Winter is here. Houston texans the ground. Winter is ear. You better prepare yourself for the spring winter of his discontent and a nice job by ryan stale off. I'm not really a groundhog. I'm not sure where we're find groundhog. Full-body emojis i liked it. So let's come to you. What is let's get some. What is the latest on shawn watson. Here it's been quiet for the last twelve hours. It makes me nervous. Houston houston doesn't want to trade him right. I mean the idea. Is that the the. Sean doesn't want to be there anymore. And he's made that clear and and that's where we are but houston not telling people when they call. Oh yeah this'll be the price they're telling people we don't want to trade him. Now the question becomes will they be forced to trade him and the way that he would force them to do that is to show them and prove to them that he's willing to sit out not just training camp but actual games they can certainly find him for missing training camp days and obviously for actual games but until they're convinced he doesn't he won't play for them then they're not inclined to move off of their position so it could be a while i i agree. I think we're looking at least six more weeks of this particular winter. Punxsutawney phil is not looking kindly upon houston right now. Jeff saturday what do you think of all this. We see the beginning of the quarterback carousel with the big trade over the weekend. How does that inform. What you think will happen with watson what i saw. What happened with jared goff in matthew stafford thought what can happen for watson like are you going to trade away. Ten players some. How could you quantify how important and valuable. This guy is mean you talking about. Tunsil tackle got multiple pigs. Jamal adams multiple right. You're talking about khalil mack. There's so much involved in this trade type scenario for a player of his caliber. It's just mind boggling to me. I don't even understand how you could put it in one offer to trade. If you're the texans of course you're not feeling any calls. I would turn my phone. I don't want anybody calling me to even tip me because you're committing professional suicide if he goes somewhere in wins championships. Everybody in the business is gonna look at you go. How could you do something that dumb. You have one of the premier players in the nfl in his early twenties and he has shown you what type of leader he is. Kate let bill. And i'm just telling you whatever you gotta do. You better make him happy because he can't leave. And but marcus you made it clear and sean has made it clear from everything. Everyone tells us that he has made it clear that he not coming back. He's not returning their calls. So marcus spears. How does this play out. It plays out with the show and playing for another team. Like i like jeff's ms them. I don't like the fact that he's being optimistic. Though the show watch the nada look houston has already read the savage this relationship. This is about the cell watson reconciling anymore. It's about getting out of there. And i get it. The houston takes a terrible situation because every year own initial told you about generational talent and you need to find a quarterback. And if you don't have a quarterback you can't win games but think about this for a second y'all some kind of way the houston texas alienated. The best thing that's happened to their franchise in history since ceja since ever and they figured out a way to alienate him he added man. it is beyond repair. Yup there are some soul-searching needs to be done with that for sure but in the interim they need to figure out where they're going on into their future.

The Raiders will have a new home next year. Will Derek Carr have a new team?
"The raiders will open next season in Las Vegas with somebody other than Derek cars. Their quarterback take shake it. Take in trouble. Their car has no money left on his books. he had guaranteed money on his books. And I think when you look at the way that the fan base react react to him off the field with the booze and things of that nature remember Travis and L Z at the beginning of the year it all. It is up into last year when when they release Khalil Mack. They traded Cooper and they started moving pieces around. I said they are going to be in line next. He's going to be the guy. I images matter of time and I think based on them not making the playoffs having some sort of false whole earlier in the year gave everybody to believe that they were a playoff contender type team and the blame can now go on the shoulders of the quarterback because he didn't live up to the expectations that we set forth for him. We're I'M GONNA move him and we're going to move on and we're going to draft a guy high in the first round and WanNa make him our future because it buys me another five
Jalen Ramsey's troubled Jaguars tenure ends with blockbuster trade to Rams
"Terms of Jalen Ramsey will talk about this he finally got what he wanted the end result the disgruntled corner headed to the Los Angeles Rams the Jaguars finally relented and Ramsey to the west coast for first round draft picks two of the one in twenty twenty one in two thousand twenty one also a fourth rounder in the two thousand twenty one draft here's a statement for Jaguars executive VP. Tom Coughlin given the situation with Jalen we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars for this season and well into the future we feel the trade that we struck with the rams gives us great value for the next two drafts and remain confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title Jalen Wasser Productive Flair but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los A- Angela here's head coach Doug marrone obviously I had a good relationship with him and we were working together to get them healthy on the field and that that's what my focus was so he can get on the field and help us you know win football games and now you know how concentrating on on the players gotta here and and getting our guys focused on on on Cincinnati I think in his league nothing ever really surprises me anymore you know especially from the business side of things I found out like everybody else did last night you know lately point Dave came in and told me Rams reporter Lindsey theory joins us from L. A. and Lindsey listen there's been a lot of coming and going and all Ryder roster changes what's the general reaction to all of the news from the rams this week Wendy for a team that's three and three and in the mid of a three game losing streak certainly renewed buzz and energy at the team facility this morning now I am told the Jalen Ramsey is in route to Los Angeles and he's expected here later this afternoon or the rams do expect that he will pass his physical and I am told that he could be on the field for them as soon as Sunday against the Falcons now this would be viewed as a move where the rams are going all in once again to try to make a repeat super bowl run but I am told the Rams really believe that this is a move for their long-term future keep to leave and Marcus Peters or playing the season on expiring contracts Ramsey has another season left and the rams do intend to sign him to a long term engine now as you mentioned he's not the only new face here at the facility today Kenny Young Austin Corbett also were here they have passed their physicals though remains to be seen if they will be at practice later this afternoon and one more note Wendy Safety John Johnson is headed to injured reserve because of shoulder injury. Lindsey thank you it was a rare blockbuster trade a few weeks now before the trading deadline Ramsey joined a small handful of veteran players traded for multiple first round picks in the last third two years or so Khalil Mack and Jay Cutler garnered big offers from the bears the dolphins move two first rounders for Ricky Williams and it too big halls to get Herschel Walker an Eric Dickerson listen we can go back to the jags but since June Ramsey is moving onto the rams let's start with what he means for the La Rams Right now we'll Wade Phillips now gets a play defense the way he wants to Wakefield's really wants to play in your face on the line of scrimmage with the defensive line pressure and then in your face on the live with men cover corners. He hasn't been able to do that to be honest with you with Marcus Peters Marcus Peters is not not played good man to man coverage needs a better zone corner so now wade having Jalen gets the opportunity to get back to Colin defense the way he wants to do it I'll be really interested to see if they use Jalen the way we want I bill belichick thrill reverse where you put him on the team's best number two receiver and then everybody else gets to get double teams opposing for the opposing offense but it makes their defense significantly best Champ Bailey the dion sanders I mean the great quarters you can do that lock him up and then roll the other side I think you'll see that the other thing that was curious for me was that Tom Coughlin mentioned that Jaguars were better this year and going forward I think maybe either that was miss written or because they're not speak they're not better by getting a great player out of there so I miss quotes tim so expe- Joe Joe Listen you were you were spot on Jalen Ramsey never changed his stance which is what you asserted from the get-go and I would assume just finally came to a point where it just made no sense to have him on a roster when he wasn't going to win this transaction happened yesterday the first thing came to my mind is how often the people I was always talking to that this was going to work out for Jalen Ramsey like there was no fretting I didn't hear any fear and now that this is resolved itself in the way that it has it kind of plays into the tone that I've been hearing all along now I was talking to a source obviously familiar with Jalen Ramsey. They said that he's excited considering this a fresh start to be with the rams I think one of the questions that I had in talking to ram source last night was why not hold onto Marcus Peters to have opposite Jalen Ramsey in terms of making this movie now one thing that the ram source said to me is that it looked like it was clear that less need did not want to pay marcus. Peters beyond this year he's eligible unrestrained the free agency next year and it was better just to rip off quote unquote the band-aid now so then it becomes well who is opposite Jalen Ramsey for this game against the Atlanta Falcons they mentioned that two thousand seventeen when cal Roby Coleman I came to the teen that he did fill in for a keep to Leon outside first and second down and then on Nichols would have him excuse me on third down having a nickel or sometimes have troy hill on the outside and then have an RC in the middle so expect something like that or combination of that against the Falcons either way Julio Jones saw the rams problems in the short turn no because the opposite of the ball is atrocious right now and that's been there issue as far as being a front now what I will say is it does play into them getting better though like we can focus on golfing what this offense has been doing but with the guy like Jalen Ramsey not only does he hell Aaron Donald give him a maybe a half a second more to get to the quarterback he also may be able to steal a possession to for you and this ninety four was out there so air down gets another piece on the back end that can help him hold off quarterbacks for a second for him to get there and that's that's really all I can think about so maybe you
AB reacts to fines from Raiders, has new helmet
"We have to address a couple more here. We're gonna start in with exactly what is going on in oakland oakland with antonio brown's so many things have happened. It's hard to keep track of and hard knocks being there to help the situation for the raiders in dealing with their star wide receiver and the various antics surrounding him the helmet issue has been well documented for some time for those who don't know antonio browns helmet that he has used his entire career was deemed illegal by the n._f._l. It wasn't safe enough for antonio so he decided to filed a suit saying that he wasn't enough time to adequately find a helmet. He likes to wear for the games. He filed two different grievances. Both it did not fly with the n._f._l. And he lost both of them so he has had to find a helmet he has reported to camp the newest thing being he has has been fined by mike mayock general manager for missing so much time with the team. Antonio brown has stated how upset he is about these fines being levied on on him but frankly i love antonio brown's charisma. I love the way he uses the media to help him and you got to think about the raiders in with hard knocks with everything around their team right now media wise. There's a lot of scrutiny jon gruden being signed that ten year one hundred million dollar contract trading khalil mack trading amari cooper everyone in the n._f._l. Media is trying to keep tabs on what's going on in oakland and antonio brown by taking taking so much of that media heat. He has really made it easier for guys like p._j. Hall arden key cleveland feral jonathan abrams josh jacobs all these rookies and second year players that really have some potential have not had to deal with this media blitz because antonio has been there to kinda shield them from that and on that side i think that the raiders as an organization as a fan base need to thank antonio brown for taking that heat off of their other players so they can develop and really dig into the system not having to worry about media relations however now with this new grievance hopefully it's nothing between antonio brown and mike mayock. They can just move past. It's obvious that he had to get fined for missing so much time with the
Alabama LB Dylan Moses out indefinitely with knee injury
"All right bad news for a dial in Alabama starting linebacker the nose is out with a knee injury might say how they work in Alabama next man up next they re load that's true but Dylan Moses they've also got other back up to him on their other star linebacker is out also with a foot injury for the whole year read in line Moses is to that defense I'm not saying it's like losing Khalil Mack but it might be like losing he was gonna be a top ten pick in this year's draft coming up you still might be it he still might be and he was the anchor of that defies better for five star linebackers waiting in the wings that everybody thinks yeah they don't yeah other team to start to recruit just as well as
"khalil mack" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Right. The Texans did the same thing with Shawn Watson. Best thing they've ever done. Well, obviously Sam darnold, who I think's going to be really good. They gave up a ton. They flip once last year from three to six and they three second round picks. But quarterbacks no one's ever gonna argue that, you know, it's like you would if you knew the guy is going to be a top six or seven quarterback, you do it every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Days, but I think you see it with other players. Last year. I had a front row seat when everyone reacted with Khalil Mack traded. Now, most people thought Gruden was an idiot, but I think a lot of people like you gave up a lot for Khalil Mack because they had to pay him to. I know this ask anyone with Chicago Bears. And I literally have they think they underpaid what Khalil Mack means of that team. And how good he is. He was worth three first round picks. They actually kinda fleece the raiders because their their first round pick. This year was picked twenty four and they turned into running back. They gave them their first round pick next year or this upcoming year will the bears are going to be good. But they flopped, the second so the, the raiders get their third round pick. And they get the raiders second, so it's actually not that crazy of a deal, but at the time it was like, damn, they gave up a lot and again, looking back as the easiest thing they've ever did if Aaron Donald and every team in a league was interested and should have been because you always pay a premium for premium. Mm-hmm. If Aaron Donald would have been available last year, like Khalil Mack. He would have been worth multiple first round picks. Now. Unlike quarterbacks in the NFL position players, there's only a select few remember once upon.
NFL Draft Rumors: Picks for the Raiders, Jets, and Giants
"Now. Let's get into the raiders because they are very very interesting. They've sent everybody away. It's like, it's like survivor. There's two guys on an island. You got Mayock. You got Gruden no one else is around anywhere near the organization right now. And I read something that they said for fear that you know, they're big plan. Could get thrown to the wolves. What what possibly could this dynamic huge groundbreaking attempt. Be for the Oakland Raiders got insane. As we heard everyone connected to them literally Quinton Williams Devon why at Oliver and now. The most recent name is to Wayne Haskins. Now, I know a lot of raiders spans laugh at thought of that. But this is where it gets really interesting division in Oakland right now is that there are coaches there that really liked main Haskins. They're also coaches there that are not sold their car is the future. So is Oakland sitting there four knowing that Wayne Haskins might fall into their lap or hoping he falls into their lap. There's a lot of rumors about that right now. Or are they trying to play someone to train up with the jets to Oakland gift Quinton Williams? That's kind of where I'm weaning right now. I do think they want the jets to get out of that pick in fear that if they don't the general take when Williams and that's been there guy all along. This is a team that needs stars on the defensive line because they traded Khalil Mack. They don't have any. I know they use a lot of picks Matt area last year. I think Mary's hers could be an okay player. PJ hall hasn't shown anything yet right now. So Oakland all options are on the table for them right now. And it's very very interesting. All right. So if Haskins goes three and Williams. Does four Naida Tampa at five with Devon white. And Josh Allen still on the board. I think it would be I think Todd Bowles, I know Todd Bowles pick their and Lee here when he was in New York that was Todd Bowles spic you want speed at linebacker. He wants leadership at linebacker Tampa has loved Devon white for months now. I think if he's sitting there at five they would celebrate with happiness that they didn't have to move to get him. So you were telling me now that the way we just went through the MacIntosh of the first five picks. There's a legitimate chance that my New York football giants are landing maybe an elite talent edge rusher. Sixth overall in Josh Allen. I wouldn't rule it out at all. I would not rule that out at all. They get the guy who originally originally from jersey. Now, the interesting thing was the giants here. I have a belief that they've Gettleman has done a really nice job for once here with the smokescreens. And that the giants wanna quarterback at six as much as we keep hearing. They are content taking one at seventeen there's not even the guaranteed that. There will be one is seventeen. I don't see how team can take that kind of risk. So who? Do you think he likes because you know, I'm based out of New York, and we try to break down the code every day. And we just we have no idea of what's going on half the time. Do you look at him and say he likes Jones, we've heard that lock. We've heard that everyone seems to be opposed. The fact that Dwayne Haskins if someone who's interested in then lately for the rumor keyed up and maybe Josh Rosen lands to the New York Giants at some point. Yeah. There's a lot of sect year. I think they, you know, obviously, Daniel Jones there was a lot of smoke around them taking him at seventeen.
2019 NFL Draft prospects
"We're about three weeks from the NFL draft. It's been an interesting off season. If you were bears fan last season. It was interesting the bears gone out and done a lot of things this off-season than to talk about that and much much more. We bring in our guy NFL writer, Eric at home. Nice enough to jump on and Eric tonight. Everything's good. Yeah. It was just thinking these last three weeks for the drafter get a feel like any turn into here that always does every single year seems like it takes a long time here in Chicago. We've always been interested in the draft. Because usually the bears were bad a high draft pick. And now they were smart last year and traded pigs got gotta Khalil Mack. And now they've not picking until the third round unless they make a move. But I mean, I think it seems like all their other moves have been in you know, in free agency and bringing. Players in. So it's not nearly the draft excitement here in Chicago. Like, it was when just imagine if the draft was here, and it was no bears draft pick for you know, for the first day and a half down. Admit what difficult I think it would be legal to do that. The office. Like, let's about this. The bears probably will make their selection around nine o'clock. I think on Friday night. So you settle in. You know, maybe, you know, get some food get something to eat whatever it's going to be a while. I don't think they'll be moving up. They don't have a lot of picks. So yeah, it's gotta be patience is virtue for bears fans outside of kicker because kickers not real answer. When you talk about to what's the biggest need for the bears. Hang into the draft. It's a great question. You know, I think it probably, you know, I think what they did themselves. A lot of a good favor by refunding airless, you know, and just you know for a one year deal. Right. We know he's the third outside guy. But still it just eliminated one spot that you have to kinda reach four and not reach four. But you know, have to hope that somebody is at that position waiting for you in the draft. So it probably slimmed down to two maybe three or four positions. I would think running back has to be on that list. You know, I personally would like to see. Them. Get more death on the offense of line. And I think the secondary either corner or safety would be a spot they can look at and their few defensive action, the strap that I think could play, you know, cover the flight and also places safety. So there's some versatile guys in this great year for either position a corner safety, but it's deep enough where they could possibly get somebody there. So I would just, you know, spit balling kinda Dr throwing I would say those it's likely that they could be picking one of those three spots that eighty seven toys have you ever seen as I'm asking the question. I know we've all seen it. But have you? I was gonna ask you if you've seen the situation where teams running back like Jordan Howard performed relatively well and was light by many people. And but basically the head coach had no use form at this point. And that's why they ended up moving them. Yeah. I mean, obviously, totally different situation from what happened with Levy on bell. You know, those are the exceptions to the rule, but you know, it is one of those. Position where if you're not one of the elite top, you know, five or six guys in the league at your spot. You know, there's only so much teams willing to kind of sink into that dishing. I know that there have been back strapped in the top. You know, five ten picks several years, it's not gonna have this year. But it's happened. A lot in recent history or often more often than I would've expected. I know Todd Gurley got his big deal. I know other people have gotten pretty good money. That's dishing bell sign this off season. But there's a drop off, you know. And so I think if you're not special, you know, that maybe are deemed expendable depending on the system. And so you know, I can see both sides why they moved on. And I think they feel like with Mike Davis Torri Cohen, they add one more the draft. You know, maybe Ryan dollars trading Kampe preseason hero again or something like that. But you know, we'll see I think they will try to add at least one more. And then maybe an underrated free agent to add on top of that. Daryl. Patterson is. Is an interesting guy. But he's been an interesting guys come into the league. Other people have found out ways to use them and the patriots even lined him up in the backfield as a running back. Do you expect Matt Nagy to do that? Also, not only just swing passes and give them in and around and things like that. And also given the ball out of the running back position. Yeah. It's a great option. I think you know, the patriots really the first team to really unlocked at running ability. I mean like you said when he was in Oakland, you know, other places he was running those kind of gadget runs and things like that. But I mean, they line them up as a tailback and got buffalo game was it was crazy to watch. He had twenty something carries. And so, yeah, it was it was a strange thing to think about you know, a six to two hundred twenty pound receiver who could run like the wind lining up kind of power back. But he can do it. I think that really added to the appeal. He's the perfect Matt Nagy player. They'll run kick off, you know, he could be a wide receiver if you need to. I don't think he's more than. A number four. But still, you know, having that deeper out option is important. And I think that's you know, that kinda speed if Taylor Gabriel is out there, they may not have that exact replica that so it's different version of speed. And then as you said we saw last year that he can be running back, you know, in cut a break glass in case for -mergency situation. Seahawks quarterback. Russell Wilson wants a new deal. He gave the Seahawks April fifteenth as a deadline to get that deal done. Do you think he gets done in what type of deal? Do you think Russell Wilson who get from the Seahawks? So here's my hypothetical question here. Like what they let's say if April sixteenth by parents diversity, by the way. Let's. Let's say April sixteenth. They offer him. The richest TV deal of all time. You're gonna say oh sorry. The deadline. Hey, understand that this thing happened in January. We didn't really hear about it until very recently. But meeting his, you know, giving them a deadline, but you know, it just doesn't make a lot of stints. It's not a if something magical happens on that calendar day, not as some kind of contract, you know, bonus kicks in or anything else that would prevent them from getting this thing done, or if there's some kind of you know, league deadline or something like that. It's not July fifteenth and the franchise player, so it's just one of those kind of subtle threats from the from the Wilson camp saying, hey, don't forget about me, baby. You know, I still want to get my deal. I still want to get this thing done. You know, there's an opportunity for him to really cash in. And also kind of hold them hostage a little bit. I suspect it there's a good chance that gets done. But for months now there have been whispers that you know, maybe the Seahawks aren't quite prepared to pay him. What what a lot of people think he's worth it would at least entertain the idea of. What could we get you know, trade for him? Just theoretically, what would he get you know, is worth three first Thursay? We're still talking about a thirty thirty one year old guy. And there's still a handful of teams that really badly need that franchise different speaking quarterback. So I I don't know. I still think it's gonna get done 'cause that's city loves them. Even if a lot of past teammates were the biggest Russell Wilson fan. They know how much he means for the team another couple minutes with NFL writer, Eric at home and Erica week or so ago, rob gronkowski decided to retire. A lot of people on Twitter and everywhere else going, okay. The best tight end. Maybe you'll ever play the game has retired. Who's the best tight end in the NFL? Now who do you like? Yeah. I mean, that's a great question. To kinda depends what you want. So if you guys can do with grunk did which is being impact players blocker, and as receiver, you know. And and think about all the calls that were made against gronk over the years. He was kinda like the Cam Newton of the tight end position like say what that's not interference. Though, he just, you know, even with that work in Gascony was so special. I love the fact that Travis Kelsey can be as dangerous, you know, the last couple of years he's actually been a better receiver than gronk. No question about it. But he's not nearly the blocker that he is. You know, we see some of these young pass catching tight. I mean, George Kittle out in San Francisco at times has flashed like he could be the best to way tight in the league because he blocks his tail off. He's got great receiving chops. And really the only thing that's kind of held them back injuries. I don't necessarily think you can have a long career. So this might be one of those debate that we kinda have for years. I don't think there's any one guy that fills that checked off all the boxes like like gronk did. And he had injury issues too. But still when he was out there. There's really no doubt. And I don't know that that that one guy even though there are some great blockers. It's about staying receivers you rarely see both. Do you think that Jason Witten can still be productive? I don't know man this. I wanted to I know Jason Witten the player, it was outstanding. He was just so consistent day in and day. I knew what you're going to get from. He was probably, you know, he was unsexy version of gronk and that he could block and catch fast but a year off his age. I know they say they're going to come in just and all that. His feeling this thing could kind of turn south, and we could see 'cause he looked slow by the end when he was out there last time. He just wasn't the same guy. Eric, we appreciate jumping for few minutes. We'll hopefully those go to slow the next couple of weeks. We'll talk to you soon. All right. Enjoy the run up to the draft guys. Thanks. They got home jumping on talking NFL. Like Whitten wasn't good at the end. Then like fancy players, look like, wait. Hold on. Really? Like, what is she some Witten really gonna bring to the Cowboys? Here's a guy wanted to bring up to you. Because this is a guy that I thought when he got to the NFL was going to have a bigger impact than he's head and OJ Howard at the tight end. Okay. Because what we saw in college. We thought. Okay. The when this guy gets here Dowd using is just because the quarterback situation and the problems have had do you think he can still become a dominant tight end in this league? Maybe because he did it in college. And you assume that that body type in his speed is is ability to get down field. And you know, James Winstons been not very good. No. And I think a lot of people misread what Tampa Bay is doing. I don't think he's there for the long haul. I think Tampa Bay if they could find someone else to be their quarterback. They would go with that person. Yeah. So whether or not it's trying to find a quarterback in this year's draft. Or or or planning for the future? Elsewhere. But like I don't trust him as Winston do.
Giants hold 12 picks in 2019 NFL Draft, including two in first round
"But as for the giants they now have the number five pick and the number seventeen pick in and another third round pick. So yes, they have two first round picks. Just like the raiders do. Well, the raiders have three first round picks this year. But those in the high twenty so already the giants have to hire picks than the raiders did when they traded away, Amari Cooper and Khalil Mack. So there is some positive. They have to picks in this draft. And this is a highly touted drought class defensively. So they can get their defense a bit. And as well draft a quarterback into an Haskins who seems like he's gonna ghost the second quarterback selected. It seems to me that collar Marie still going to be the first overall selection by the Arizona Cardinals as they are shopping. Josh rosen. It's not they have not announced yet they have not made that official, but there's just been confirmation from other sources that he is being shopped. So to me, I think Colin Murray is going to be going to the cardinals with the first overall pick. And with this trade the Browns are a serious contender. I mean, just look at this offense Baker Mayfield under center Nick chub behind him. And when cream hunt comes back probably from his suspension, which is probably like six games roughly he'll be back in the lineup. Oda Beckham on one side Jarvis land joined the other you'll LSU teammates Antonio Calloway in the slot. Davis. David Joko at tight end. That's a great lineup right there. That makes Baker Mayfield. Job so much easier. When you have that much talent at the receiver position anti-dam position as well as your running game being strong with with Nick Chubb, who is extremely underrated is one of those in my opinion, one on the top picks in the draft. I'm sorry top pigs fantasy football wise in the draft.
Steelers to trade Antonio Brown to Raiders: Who won, who lost?
"Talking Antonio Brown just tweeted, hashtag raider nation and a picture of him in an Oakland uniform. So he's reportedly according to profootballtalk getting a new deal as part of a trade to the Oakland Raiders. Antonio Brown's three year whole quote will increase from about thirty nine million to fifty million dollars over three years per the pro football talk source know, how much is it. How much was fifty point one to five million years with Oakland? Antonio Brown says he's going to the raiders. Wow. Thank you to Sager. What's your first thoughts? When you hear something like that Torres. And we'll talk the tours when he comes back whatever he's doing that. I know I said did I break that news because I I asked Howard. And he you know, he he jumped right to the raiders I feel like I kind of put the wheels in more. You're taking credit for Howard's picking the raiders. Yeah. I mean, I just you know, nobody was talking about Antonio Brown all week. And I brought it up in ten minutes later. He gets traded. I'm I mean, I'm not saying I'm just saying you know, what I mean? I it does make you wonder that they were a little bit desperate because you know, obviously one more year in Oakland than making a big splash in Las Vegas to. They dropped the ball. I believe on the Khalil Mack thing. They wanted to get relevant and three does that mean that they're going to keep Derek Carr for now for another years? I what's going to happen there Torres see, and this is what I am actually genuinely confused about by the way. I didn't. I didn't like you shooting me down that I kinda shot. You're right. He did you just ignored it. It's okay. So I am a little confused about this though, Arne because what the raiders they trade Khalil Mack. They trade Amari Cooper. We hear that. Derek Carr might be on the trade block. And now they bring in Tony Brown. I I am Tonio Browns. Maybe the most gifted wide receiver in the league. But it just feels like I don't think the raiders what are they doing? Like are they rebuilding? Are. They not rebuilding Zaveri, bazaar, whatever thirteen months since Jon Gruden took over. I think it's a great move for the raiders. Okay. Was that one? They needed a splash like this to they needed some offensive weapons three. They needed something to help Derek Carr. And he's just not getting the help out there. He's he's just trying to do it all by himself. And he's a pretty good quarterback. That's not getting enough help. So. Yeah. Half the go ahead. Yeah. Had to do something. This is once they got rid of Amari Cooper. He didn't have enough. If weapons to get to now, he's got one of the best wide receivers. And all the game. I I think raider fans are going to love this. I think they're going to love it. But why do you tear down the team with the guys that you have just to bring in new young guys? You know?
Odds on Which NFL Team Will Draft Kyler Murray
"Because you said, no, you did not think Tyler Murray would be a top ten pick to change that. Now, would you? Okay. Because I want to let you know here in Las Vegas. You can bet that now. And did you say minus one forty that Keiler Murray will be the number one pick offshore as high as minus two hundred. So they're making Murray a big time favorite. And I think a lot came out of what kings Cliffe Kingsbury said when he was still coaching over there at Texas Tech. Yeah. I hear this raiders. Like get him. So knows well, you know, we're hearing that. And again, I'm not sure we're Gruden is the raiders. But you know, he's saying great cars. But who knows? Yeah. Well, the raiders need a lot of help a lot of places on the defensive line. No doubt. When you lose a guy like Khalil Mack. We know down the line. They may be looking for a wide receiver secondary help middle linebacker. But again, there's free agents out there. And from what I'm hearing raiders really interested in Brown, the wide receiver from Pittsburgh. So you never know maybe able to get a veteran before they moved here to Vegas in
All 12 playoff coaches are tied to Bill Walsh or Parcells
"The head coaches in the playoffs that season come from the coaching. Trees of other Bill Walsh for Bill Parcells Abella check. Anthony Lynn, Sean Payton. All coached under Parcells Jason Garrett and Bill O'Brien are further down the Parcells coaching tape. But they all come from the Bill Parcells coaching tree. And that means the other seven come from the Bill Walsh coaching tree. Andy Reid coached under Mike Holmgren was Walsh disciple. Four others come directly from Andy. That's John Harbaugh. Matt Nagy Doug Peterson and Frank Reich. So as we prepare to watch these games this weekend and throughout these playoffs. There is still the influence of those two legendary preeminent coaches of the eighties. If you will in Walsh and parcels what what thoughts Trump to your mind? When you see that? Look, I know that Bill walls is someone who is highly highly respected by guys like parcels end by guys like Bill Belichick. He's at the very very top of this whole thing. And they as far as situational football's concern, and as far as really just being able to build an entire football federation. He's set the standard everyone else is trying to follow now. And now is it is pretty cool though to watch kinda how bills people have done how Andy Reed's people were doing. I mean, it's it's really neat. Because really there's only so many things you can do in full. There's only so many formations you can come up with and so many defenses you can run then it just comes down to good play styles. Make fights right and Walsh that the west coast against the smashmouth run the ball in play defense style of ourselves. And if you look at it that still holds true today. Most of the Andy Reid disciples over there. Bill walsh. They're going to get the ball out. Quick. Quick eater intermediate passing game highly rhythmic west coast offense. Then you look at the Bill Parcells disciple disciples, we're going to run the football player action shots down the field and had this big physical defenses that try to beat you up and want to make this game playing the phone booth. You've heard me say this on this show that if the guys that are really good the great coaches right now, and the guys that are going to continue to be one of those eight teams looking for aid coach on finding the guy.

Tom Brady, Khalil Mack Have Top-Selling NFL Jerseys for 2018-19 Season
"That is because the NFL just released the top selling NFL jerseys of twenty eighteen would you guys like to take a guess at the top ten obviously I gave away that Khalil max in its top ten for twenty eighteen I'm gonna say number one is Patrick Mahomes. He's number three. Okay. So saquon Barkley, he's number five. Well, that's okay. Still good, right? Hold on Colo MAC. No. He's number two. Can you? Aw. It is the beloved Baker Mayfield good one year. He's number seven in the top ten number one. Hold on. You guys are missing. The obviously are the gold. Oh, Tom Brady. Yes. Why would I mean figure? Everybody's got Tom. How many
Dexter Lawrence Among 3 Clemson Players with Failed Drug Tests for Ostarine
"You have big games for Kirk cousins. And and guys like that. But ultimately the goal for every game is to win the game going out win the game. The bears won the game fourteen two nine some people say not an impressive game. You know, what they want the game in the NFL is not easy to win yesterday half. The teams lost the bears were not one of those teams. They won the game fourteen two nine Seattle went to Levi's stadium last week and played the Niners. Guess what Seattle lost? So you know winning is the ultimate goal. And that's what the bears have been able to do bears defense. Of course is a team is is the biggest part of this team. They got another interception yesterday as daddy to Raith and picked off a pass late in the game. Which was obviously. Big. No they needed to do that. I was really interested to see how they were gonna play without Eddie Jackson and they'll probably play without Eddie Jackson. Again this coming week. I think this coming week without any Jackson. Going up against the Minnesota Vikings team that needs the win to guarantee themselves a playoff spot. This is going to be a test for Dionne Bush at Adrian Amos ammos actually had a really good game. I was looking to some of the numbers earlier and let me see here. He's not running this one. I have I had so much stuff on the game where Adrian ammos actually had a pretty decent game. Would I grab his tackle numbers for the contest? And that was good to see because Adrian, ammos, he was second on the team in tackles. Roquan Smith had nine tackles Adrian animals had eight. So he stepped up his game without Eddie Jackson being their trevathan was seven Khalil Mack had five. You only had one sack that was the roquan Smith when he came wide open. So very very important stuff. How the bears are going to play defensively playing against the Niners without very good receivers. And when the young quarterback is one thing playing defense with Kirk cousins and Adam Phelan and Stefan digs and Kyle Rudolph. That's a whole other story playing in their building. So that's gonna be real interesting to see how the bears are able to play and defend this Minnesota Vikings team three one two three three two three seven seven six. Let's get back to some baseball talk to old town Georgia on ESPN thousand eight George. It looks like betting that they're trying to force. The dodgers handle that extra clearance on the payroll, which is I think, you know. Was the master. And I think a fallback of Pollock would be fantastic. If he stays help you what do you think? Yeah. Stephen Pollock healthy is a huge huge situation. You know, if in fact, you got him you could that actually move guy like Albert, Al more. If you're going to cause I still think they're gonna have to move one of those three guys I've been saying that all off season and it hasn't happened yet. So maybe I'm wrong. But I kind of thought they would move either. Now, Mora Ishwar or a half the more. I look at it. It's not going to be Schwarzer. They love Schwarzer. He's like one of their kids one of their little kids their own kids as well. I think it would be either Hapoel more if they did grab a guy. Like Pollock that'd be a completely different story. But you you think the the Harper situation, you don't think there's any changes coming here. Do you? I really think he's he's kind of an LA kinda dude. If you know what I mean? With the hair. Coast to coast. I mean seems like the perfect fit out there. But why not force the hand if we can and try to call back. He get stronger on our end. George. Appreciate the call. The one thing that I think the cubs have gone forms aproach the season first of all they won ninety five games last year. Okay. It's not like they you know, they had an awful season. They didn't hit in the last month earlier. It didn't hit in down the stretch, and they need to figure out why. And it's so it was so much fun. Watching the ball, very rarely say this.

"You're gonna think you're better than even if you're not better than your opponent. Or the guy you're trying to do a deal with your con. Sentence goes through the roof and the guy the guy that changed that for them is number fifty two. He changed the entire franchise. They would not have won the division without him. I feel I can't say one hundred percent. But no chance they would not have won the division. He changed the franchise. He changed just the culture in the mindset with Matt Nagy Matt Nagy played a role in that. But when everyone in that building right before week one we just landed Khalil Mack in light Khalil Mack with with my hot chick analogy. Here's the thing about it's not like you acquired some crazy player. Like, how did we get this guy? He's got drug problems. You know, she's she hasn't been in a committed relationship long. I don't know if she's going to be faithful Khalil's a high character great guy when the building loves and he's the hardest worker. I mean, it'd be like dating Cindy Crawford who also. Oh loves to cook. Great mother and his rich is like oh my God. This you talk to people with the bears. They will constantly tell you. This is still too good to be true. Because Khalil Mack is too. Good to be true. You do not find a Li defensive players that are high character. No maintenance, the hardest worker on your team. And every guy in the building loves of I'm talking from the secretary to the coach to cook. And that's what they acquired and that's once upon a time. What the Green Bay Packers acquired in? Reggie white. Lt was a little different obviously off the field. But this is a cannot be overstated the impact that this individual had this individual player that does not play quarterback in a quarterback league. How he changed this franchise. I have kept a close particular eye on this team. I found them to be as enjoyable of defensive team as we've had in this league since like the the Niners and Seattle were home and five or six years ago. They are throwback old school, but with these new wrinkles of fun because Matt Nagy, and again, I tell him this little cute sometimes for my liking. But the players eat it up they really do on offense. And and it worked for them. You know, it's it's worked perfectly for them. Really if they hadn't had a couple of screw ups. They could easily be like a one win team right now. I mean, they're like two plays away from basically being undefeated. But a big reason they've even had the chance to be in that conversation is fifty two Khalil Mack the future when he when he goes into the hall of fame one day think about this thing about what Gruden traded. He'll be wearing Chicago Bears jersey after three or four straight all pros with the bears changing their franchise leading them to the play. Offs. He left a franchise that doesn't have a home to one of the one of the truly great old school rigid franchises in football history in a bigger media market that he left and I got news for you. We're depending on where you look fourth or fifth in the bay area greater media market. It's not LA or New York and Chicago, but it's it'd be third by many metrics. And that's where he's at a big boy franchise was the -bility to shining like he would shine with with the raiders he Jain with the patriots. He he shined anywhere. He went. That's how special of a player Khalil Mack is let's dive into the Philadelphia Eagles. And you know, the famous saying, I think Tom Hanks said it in Apollo thirteen. Maybe different astronaut movie Houston. We have a problem. Pretty sure that's ball thirteen Philadelphia. We have a problem and. And the problem is your franchise quarterback. I watched you know, I fall a lot most NFL teams on Twitter, but I stumbled upon I was on Twitter when Doug Peterson met the media on Friday. This is the one thing I appreciate about the northeast. The just the fervor and intensity for I think a word the intensity in which the sport is covered..
"khalil mack" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"So in this first two games, he's not with the raiders joy. We saw him on Sunday night football, and we saw him on Monday night football. He is a high profile player and you can make an argument. I certainly would have resigned him and there's not many defensive players. I would pay a ton of money, but my theory on Khalil Mack was this is long as Mitch Trubisky as Mike quarterback and I have to face Aaron Rodgers. My primary rival twice a year. The only way I can reduce Rogers, therefore, making Trubisky more competitive is a guy like Khalil Mack in that division in that division. If you've got a face drew Brees if you've gotta face a Tom Brady, if you have to face Aaron Rodgers, you're never gonna. Find a quarterback that good. The chances are almost nothing Big Ben in his. Prime. So that's when I say overpay for a great transformational defensive end mean that was always the thing whenever you pay face Peyton Manning, everybody in that division was trying to find a defensive end to get Peyton Manning. So I'm not a big believer in paying a fortune for defensive players. Aaron Rodgers. You got him Mitch, Trubisky I got him. I want to bridge the gap then overpay for Khalil Mack because you are overpaying. He can't change games generally like a quarterback Ken interfa- and I'm like quarterback money. But here's something I wonder if the raiders thought about. If you break up with somebody, it's better that you don't get reminded of it constantly like they become your neighbor or they work at the same place. If you separate from somebody you'd like not to be reminded of the pain. But here's the thing Khalil Mack played in Oakland. Oakland didn't get on TV much in the last fifteen years. And here's why, because they plan the AFC, Tom Brady Peyton Manning and Big. Ben also play in the AFC. So the network CBS has the AFC games who do they put on those late games, Payton, Tom, and Big Ben. So the raiders, although there well known, don't have a huge national profile. So Khalil Mack was great, but you didn't see him play much. And Oakland's also a small market. It's the third biggest market in the bay area, San Francisco, San Jose, then Oakland. But now he goes to Chicago. So two times a year he plays Aaron Rodgers. Those will be national television games Chicago's the number three TV market networks like FOX and NBC are dying to put the bears on whenever they can. We are Thursday night FOX, late game. We're all begging for the bears to be good, and when they're at least eight, eight, nine and seven. I mean, ever noticed how often the New York Giants are on the New York Giants run watchable and the networks keep putting on why? Because if he li- no, because a New York Chicago's one of those markets at FOX or praying, they'll be functional. Okay. Here's the other problem. Because Mitch Trubisky is so limited Khalil. Mack is the face of the team. So the pregame show the halftime talk. The highlight stuff is always going to be Khalil Mack. Nobody cares about Mitch. Trubisky is going to be Khalil Mack. I mean, it's greatest Khalil. Mack is if he went to the Packers, Aaron still the face of the franchise Khalil Mack in a major market that networks are dying to put on the Aaron Rodgers game. They play on thanksgiving this year. They also play New England. You're going to be reminded of this Khalil Mack trade over and over and over. And I'm not sure they thought about it, but it is one of these things you guys, you had a break up and you're gonna be reminded of it. He's going to be walking through your work every fifteen minutes. And also because also this is something to think about it. I'm sure the raiders didn't think about this. But when you say bears linebacker, that's like saying Lakers center, you think of, but kissed and single -tarian Urlacher in Bronco gerski that's a narrative. That's a discussion. If the Lakers got another great center, you'd think of will then Jabbar and shag. And so you've got this great linebacker the best in the league goes to this legendary franchise, which is high profile now because between their special teams, their defense in their coach in a little bit, their division, they'll be, they'll be viable that'll be viable in the raiders are going to be reminded of this over and over and over again..

"Your division. You plan twice a year. We're going after Khalil Mack. It had been reported before the deal. Aaron Rodgers has had to collarbone surgeries wanna face in minimum ten times next five years that Viking pass, rush and Khalil Mack. The next Lawrence Taylor really wanting to see that he's gonna get air and a couple of times I don't know, plays him ten times in five years. You want to face the next Lawrence Taylor. See. Green Bay's defense right now is young and mostly cheap. You've got room dispend big money on a Khalil Mack. D. Reggie McKenzie is a former Packer executive. He's the current raiders GM. You had a built in emotional psychological advantage. You had a guy that respects and likes the Packers in the building and you didn't use it e. We've got history here. Folks. Green Bay is not where free agent stars go. They don't go to Green Bay. So when you can get him in a trade, you get him in a trade. F- Aaron Rodgers. Never loses in the playoffs. When you give him help defensively when Green Bay Gibbs up fewer than twenty three points in the play offs, Aaron Rodgers has never lost, but here's what Green Bay has given up in his losses in the playoffs. Fifty one points, thirty seven points. Forty five points, twenty eight point twenty six points. Forty, four points. Green Bay, seven and one. If you can just hold people to a reasonable number twenty three. You've got good interior defensive lineman, you drafted corners next year. The one thing in the first round you're gonna draft you to draft a defensive end a pass rusher. I said this yesterday once again. People in Green Bay. This organization is not comfortable with risk, but Colin. But Colin, we signed Aaron Rodgers to an extension that's not risk. That's duh. That's like telling my kids, hey, don't walk out in front of traffic. That's like, hey, I didn't jump out of a plane without a parachute. Of course, you sign Aaron Rodgers. That's not courage. That's like your idiots. If you don't do that, Khalil Mack takes courage, give up stuff to get stuff. I don't wanna hear that signing. Aaron Rodgers took guts. That's the biggest duh in professional sports. Courage would have been going to give up two first round picks to get Khalil Mack. You had it. You're not a free agent destination and you blew it. Let me shift to this hard knocks. Final edition was on last night..

"And so the other. Aspect of it is the money. The raiders did have money to pay Khalil Mack. And so it was going to be at a standstill for a long time until October until they get their TV money. They wouldn't have the money to pay a hundred and forty million dollars. And so Jon Gruden did was he started to campaign talking. We play bad with him. We can play better without him and then all of a sudden they start talking about, let's trade them. Let's get these draft picks and Chicago bitten. And so now to give him two first round draft picks in Oakland and to give Khalil Mack. One hundred and forty million dollars is guy in this day. So you don't like what the Chicago Bears did. I think it's going to help them, but it's not enough to tilt the feel for me because they're not paying for trubisky's on that rookie contract, but they don't have enough offense in my mind, everybody's talking about what Neg is done, how good they look in a preseason. That's preseason real deal start Sunday. We'll see. I don't think they have enough offense to beat Minnesota agreed in that division and Khalil Mack and the defense the defense has played will last few years under. Five GIO pas, you Vic? Fazio. So to me, I don't think they have enough to to tip the field to make them that much better playoff contender in my mind. So the Philadelphia Eagles we have these four things, the Philadelphia Eagles win a Super Bowl, and the NFL is a lot like music. There's a lot of one hit wonders, right? There's a lot of team, the dirty birds in Atlanta, they disappear. Right. You know, I think Saxon villes gonna shrink a little bit because Andrew luck into Sean watching her back now in their division. That's just my prediction, but Philadelphia wins. Right. Okay. I got. They're putting up Super Bowl signs in the building. They're starting quarterbacks, not ready. They opened with Atlanta who they beat last year, got a little chip on their shoulder, their offensive coordinator. The quarterback coach leave their coach got again a book deal check yet yet. Yep, Yep. Like I look at Philadelphia. These are the warning signs in my life of watching the NFL that they're not going to repeat. I don't think they repeat anyway, Green Bay Packers, Tina beaten all the football, but two things struck me. They wanted to bits Nick foles in the preseason or tongue about how he's not planning up to par. And then Secondly, when you play in front of passionate fans who haven't won anything in a long time, like the eagles fans, they're buying dinners fall. The players, kissing all the players. You can do no wrong in Philadelphia. You can go out there and do some of the creative stuff and you won't get arrested in Philadelphia right now, you start to get a sense that you know, man, we still own the Super Bowl cloud, and you forget to go to work in off season. Thank you to me. I think that. They can struggle. Now, having said that, I think they can beat Atlanta on Thursday because Atlanta can't go on their defense. You look at the last two times they played and Leno score ten and I think thirteen points. So the defense holds them down against Atlanta. But I do think that you get a little bit of sense of, I'm the most important piece..

Do you think he's ready to do this by himself? Is she ready to do it by himself and your kids are all different summer more mature, some are less mature some can handle being out by themselves. Some can't, and it really happens a lot with driving when you're young. Is she ready for a driver's license? Or one of those like permits where the parents are in the car. And if you really trust your kid and you think they're mature and they can handle it, you just get them a driver's license and you don't have to be in the car and you just let them go. They're gonna drive to another state. You trust them. That's a great great feeling as a parent and it shows you the respect for the kid. But if you just get him a learner's permit, Honey, we'll let you drive. But dad and I'll be in the cars. We go to the grocery store. You love them. You think they're capable to don't really trust him yet maturity. So. Baker Mayfield on hard knocks last night, got a learner's permit. Watch this with Hugh Jackson, watch..

So let me start with this. The raiders traded Khalil Mack Khalil Mack is everything you're trying to find in the NFL every single person in the NFL's trying to find basically the same thing, a great player who plays it a really important position than to great guy in the locker room and the raiders had it and gave him up because you know he was really expensive, dude. So as filet Mignon. So it was a Mercedes Benz. So estate at the Ritz Carlton like you gotta get comfortable without. Right. I understand that the raiders didn't have a star quarterback and they thought to themselves, oh Lord, we got to give up this defensive guy get a bunch of pics to get a quarterback, but they do. They have their car. I would get up. The raiders didn't have somebody to protect their quarterback, their offensive linemen, and they said, you know what? We got a quarterback, we gotta protect him and we're going to give up this great player to get it. But time out the raiders do have a great quarterback and they do have a good offensive line. So the. Next thing the raiders would want is a great pass rusher and they gave him up. What are you doing? Uncle Collins, three rules of football. It's not real complicated. Number one, get a good quarterback number to get people who can protect your quarterback. And number three get to the other teams quarterback. They've already got one in to do you know what they're going to do with those two draft picks. They got joy, try to find the next Khalil Mack and they won't because he's a once in a franchise player. There are no Lawrence Taylor's for the New York Giants. They're never gonna. Find another one. Denver's never going to get a John Elway. It never gonna find him.

Was fine a quarter pack, protect a quarterback, and then get people who get their quarterback. You gotta figure that out. This is not complicated and don't get me wrong. I understand it's really expensive, but I, as I get older, there are just certain things you can't be cheap on. You can't be cheap on transportation. He can't be cheap on toilet paper. Just spend the extra money. Trust me. It don't be cheap with NFL superstars. 'cause you get about two a draft. You get about two a draft and I may be hyperventilating..

"This is the herd. We'll discuss Jon Gruden bidding due to Khalil Mack. What he said is he saying. In about fifteen minutes here in the herd. Look still still reacting to a big college football weekend. I'll tell you what's amazing though about the National Football League ju ju guys, see what happened with the Dallas Cowboys. Dan Bailey. Second most accurate kicker, I believe in the history of the NFL released over the weekend in the NFL stands for not for long. So Dan Bailey released by the by the Cowboys Cowboys. You're gonna be fascinating to watch this year. Absolutely. Fascinating. And the the hard part for for this position for the for the kicker position, for example, is in look at the chargers last year. They took a chance and went with young way coup. Not young who young we cou. Why? Because he won the the kicking competition in the preseason, but preseason regular season are completely different. Atlanta, Philadelphia, Thursday, then Pittsburgh who Cleveland played them close both times last year. I think all of us would concede that Cleveland is. They have an upgrade at positions across the board, including quarterback and Pittsburgh's coming in without lady on bell. Cincinnati, indie, Tennessee, who made the playoffs against Miami has got Ryan tannehill back. San Francisco opens up at Minnesota, Jimmy Jean, his huge contract ins, Kirk cousins, and his huge contract Houston against New England.

"And so they couldn't compete with the just the the size veracity of both lines lines of scrimmage for Alabama. They get worn down and beat up. So some of it is Alabama's good. Some of it is Alabama's from recruiting and just keep loading up with guys to wear sodas, Kentucky and Duke and basketball. But those guys always go pro and college football. They can't go pro for at least three years. But also some of it is the quality competition. The quality competition. We got some poor yon Khalil Mack, got some for you on lady on bell, wasn't the hell is buffalo doing? It makes no sense, which makes complete sense with the Buffalo Bills announcing that Nate Peterman is their starter. But coming up next. What Jim Harbaugh haters need to realize. It's very simple. Take a deep breath. It's next I'm Doug godly. This the hurt. Doug Alvin for Colin. This is the heard wherever you may be have remained. Listen, thanks so much for making us part of your day. People are saying crazy things about this Khalil Mack trade Razi things by this Khalil Mack trade. Grazie we will reel them back in get you ready for a great night in college football and a great weekend in the National Football League. There is look. There is a team out there that I don't necessarily love the long term prognosis of them, but short term, wow, seems like seems like they got a lot of dudes. We'll get. We'll get to that. There is a little bit of basketball to talk about the Lakers finally agreeing to a buyout of Lou all dang ridding themselves of all. But I think they have like one guy left from the Mitch Cup, check era that cleared out thirty eight million dollars in salary, cap space for next season member Kawai bridge int k. d. free agent, Jimmy Butler free agent Klay Thompson free agent dad. The voice of the Lakers former Laker Klay grew up in Orange County, went to Santa Margarita high. School. It all kinda makes sense. They're all kinda makes sense. Enough about basketball. It's talk football. So in the in the if you're a hater, you are going to have a great night and a terrible night all at the same time, right. If you're a hater, there's things that everyone seems to hate of the hater variety. Does that make any sense yet? Does haters hate Duke basketball. They just do. They just hate all things do. Basketball haters will either hate. LeBron or k. d. you could maybe pick Kobe Bryant as well. Again, it doesn't mean that you cannot like those guys, but the, hey, the the, you never give any sort of love any sort of credit even when it's absolutely do, and you simply hate on any kind of negativity. Look, a hater was waiting for Notre Dame to lose or for Jim Harbaugh to lose. It was going to be a great night for the hater. The good thing about being a hater is you can hate on Notre Dame, but somehow if Michigan lose the Notre Dame, you just gloss over your hatred for Notre Dame. Like, man, I don't like horrible. Okay. And the haters says, a Michigan paying Jim hormone nine million a year. I mean here. And he's eight eight overs last sixteen, let let's we can completely gloss over that. He was nineteen in three in his first was a twenty two games, right? We'll just gotta gloss. Pretend like that didn't happen. We can also forget that. If you go back to seasons ago, they lost three games by a grand total of five points, three games by five points..

"All right, welcome into our number three of the rich Eisen show on Mike Keller John audience joins me in studios. We filled the guest host. Cheers, rich. You know before that, that grind before that marathon, which is a fun. It's a fantastic run of twenty five twenty six weeks in the NFL. This is the last weekend without an NFL game. That means something on till you get Valentine's Day. So you've got a heck of a run rich and the crew taking a little time away before they get set. I'll be back in the chair on Monday along with Brady Pinga filling in on Labor Day on the rich Eisen show. But this is it. The National Football League begins its regular season in six days the National Football League. We'll have Aaron Donald as five, six year, one hundred and thirty five million dollar deal with the Los Angeles Rams that was put ink to paper earlier today still waiting. Now you just heard in the intro, the situation was evolving and they were taught. Talking in something was going to get worked out and it did and it makes him the the richest offensive lineman in league history. So you've got a little bit of that going on the linemen in league history, a little bit of that going on, but there's nothing on with Khalil Mack. I see another report today that the Cleveland Browns are in discussions. Now every time you see stuff like that going out there you give the consideration while where, where does that stuff come from it? I don't know what the benefit would be for the Oakland Raiders to leak information real or not about we're talking to this team. Well, can I jump in real quick because if there was ever a team, I think in the NFL where you wanted like a hold out player to be aware of things could be worse. And I know the Browns and hard knocks has us all excited for Cleveland Browns football in some sort of way. But if there's ever a franchise where you would kind of threaten the hold out player to say, hey, remember we got a pr-. Pretty good thing. Perhaps going over here, if you truly don't want to be part of this, we can send you over there and you cannot win any games and you can go into obscurity. So yeah, I could see maybe the raiders leaking team, the Cleveland Browns. In fact, I think they'd be the perfect team to leak. That makes sense. Well, yeah, would be except I don't know what the benefit is. I don't know what the benefit is. If your team and releasing information that you might be in trade talks Khalil Mack and the Oakland Raiders have not talked. It's not as though they're at the table and they both set a point and the the raiders saying, this is what we're willing to do in Khalil Mack and his agent say about, we're not talking until we get to this level. They haven't talked as far as everybody knows as far as the reports are concerned. There's been no conversation about Khalil Mack and the the delicate nature. The very difficult element of trade is that any acquiring team is going to have to have a deal worked out with Khalil Mack because nobody can. Why are trae. Four one year. This is not major league baseball and what you rent a player doesn't happen with a guy like Khalil Mack, any team that is going to acquire because of what the raiders are going to ask for in return, you're going to have to have a long-term deal, worked out and assuring and confidence that Khalil Mack is going to be with you and you can't do it just on a gentlemen's agreement alone. You'd have to have a deal set in place that is contingent on the trade. Is him signing this long term extension when it comes to complicated matters as far as trade's in what needs to be given up and salaries and deals. And with other teams, I always rely on people once again smarter than I am one of those persons. Those people is Andrew Brandt of the QB. He was on the show a couple of days ago. And one of the things he's always said about the Khalil Mack situation is it seems like since the raiders have so much control, the trade talks..

"Yeah, I think it is actually, Jared, bell USA today before we get to the hall of fame stuff te'o because I'm fascinated, you're in those rooms, vote on him, not voting on him. Let me say this. I'm not a big fan of free agency. I think you're basically you don't know the odometer. It's like a car used cars, be careful. You know if they didn't mess around with the dominator, they can still have a wreck and not tell you about it. You know they're supposed to. They don't know us the problem when you're getting free agents is, were they good practice players? Are they good in the locker room in minor league baseball, you draft a guy, you know, through the minors, it'd be good dude or bad dude. So I've always been NFL free agency. I do think there's a time though when you have a quarterback who can start in the first three years in a rookie contract and he's good, like Russell Wilson. Oh yeah. Go for it. Seattle's like Percy, Harvard, cliff. April Rams are like, okay, Jared, Goff painted. Nothing. I gotta tell you right now. Jarrett Khalil Mack jets. There's discussions with Oakland. I think if I'm the jets, I give you multiple. To get Khalil Mack. I got Leonard Williams, Tremaine Johnson at corner Adams, the safety. I Todd Bowles in the league defensive coach. I really like him. I think if I'm the jets, I go for Khalil Mack and my crazy. You're not paying darnold anything? No, I think that's great. If you're the jets, I mean, why not go for it? You have nothing to lose. Give away some draft picks and add this playmaker to your defense. But the problem I think in this whole scenario is if you're the raiders you'd be crazy to trade away Khalil Mack now obviously they could make some kind of offer that you can't refuse a draft pick back is, but the raiders you can't get a guy like Khalil Mack, an edge impact player off the streets. And if you're talking about like Jon Gruden told me he wants to try to win immediately. Well, you need your best defensive player that the problem with this I think is, is there's a couple of different layers. Obviously, one being the CBA that allows teams to have a fifth year option for these. I. Picks. So you talk about five years and then to franchise be tied up for seven years. But the other thing is that Jon Gruden and Khalil Mack have not worked together because Khalil Mack has not been there during the off season. Gruden doesn't have the sense that a lot of people and I've been around the raiders a bit and recent years and the respect level for Khalil Mack in that locker room, huge as a team guy who'd, oh no doubt about it and Gruden you want guys like that and your locker room for your message. Oh, knows John leware you out John needs guys, that love him. Yeah, he needs like four guys behind him. The troops that are like, no, John's great trust me. You gotta believe John. Okay. I gotta get to this. Te'o didn't get on the first ballot and then snubbed the hall of fame you were in those rooms on Teo voting. Was his behavior talked about? Was that the problem? Of course it was talked about. You can't talk about te'o without talking about. The drama that is attached to the t. o. brand if you will fame thing. I mean, that's the most te'o thing. Te'o has ever done. Okay, but but McCollum let me tell you this from from the get-go from year one with -til. I was one of the voices into Rome that was really promoting his cause as a hall of Famer and did not, you know, not acknowledge the issues that some people had with his personality and, and you can argue a lot of different ways and extrapolate to the nth degree. What effect that has on what happens on the field? I mean, if a guy's a, you know, a locked room issue. Does that carry over so you can. You can make those arguments, but bottom line look at the guys production. Look at the elite players at his position during his era. He didn't hurt teams either eagles went to a Super Bowl Niners to me. He wasn't always a great guy..

This is how you do it. This is a no brainer to me. You the New York Jets you have got to do this. You've got to find a way there's at least twelve teams reportedly have called the Oakland Raiders about Khalil Mack. And in fairness, the Oakland Raiders. Let's be clear. Let's not blame this on Jon Gruden. First of all of us would take the money just like he's at the money. Secondly, from a football, accurate standpoint, demand is made to be a part of football. He knows football inside and out whether he can coach, this generation of players remains to be seen, but I don't think him being away from the game as long as he was will hurt him as much as it would have heard of the coaches because he was the voice of Monday night football, which means that he was around these guys all the time and by virtue of being around all of them talking to them ingratiating yourself with today's modern day player. While at the same time, calling the game giving color commentary.

"I've been hearing bits and pieces of Fouts Khalil Mack Greater story Am I understanding that They either don't want to. Or can't pay him The money that Khalil Mack is definitely earned over these over these last couple of years because Khalil Mack is One of the best defender in the league not name Aaron Donald did? They not manage the? Salary, cap enough for they have a dispute as to what they think he's worth what what's the story here, I it, seems as though Khalil Mack is in line for very big payday and the raiders seemed to be I mean according to reports Seem to be in some ways unwilling or unable to pay it's just like I said I've. Just I've, heard about this Saddam and, ask you, a question here okay Jon Gruden because, he's held out I know that know that but I'm, saying? John, gruden's making. One hundred million dollars right yeah he is so, he's, got the final say on all personnel. Authority Reggie McKenzie still there, but Gruden with one hundred, billion dollars, buys you may gruden's get a lot of sway so what I'm. Wondering based on some of, the you know 'cause Gruden gets asked about the is, video? And, the initial. Thing was you know he hasn't talked to Khalil Mack And grooten said oh no, I talked to is weird how he said. It I talked to MAC when I first got, the job, use his last name funky I'll talk to, macaroni I got the job, so anyone, says we haven't talked as wrong I. Don't know that, that talk went so well How do you? Not have a, good, conversation with. Your best player unless he says hey I'm underpaid I want. Five times what, I'm. Making, or something like. That and Gruden said. Whoa whoa like I don't that's that's the problem. Mike Holmgren was. The first to deal with this that's the problem when the head coach has personnel authority because now contracts and signing. Bonuses and, money and all this as a coach, hell yeah you, want Khalil Mack there because he's like you said other, Derek Carr is the best player on your team but now you gotta be, mean on the salary at this like Bruce bocce doing. Arbitration with giants players like. It wouldn't be good that's. Not a good thing you are one hundred percent so what. I'm wondering and I'm just a surmise? On this did money, come, up like Khalil Mack, like if. Gruden call hey I'm the, new coach loved. It when, I was calling games I. Love you you know you're the leader of the Defense or the pass rusher and if. He says hey, you. Know, 'cause we got. To. Get my money. Right or whatever and that in got salty like. If the two of them that's my only you're you're leaning out there this should be much easier than it is now having said. That you, saw in LA Aaron Donald and the, Rams can't you, see the GM said we are now finding the same, zip code on the money but that's that's a guy like you can't not, play without Aaron darnold if you're the Rams the Rams. Are better team than the. Raiders and while it is. Not the optimal situation play without Donald you're still talking about. A team that has a lot of? Talent on on that, side, they're all Donald every, single one. Of those players I think, it survive survive. Without him, the raiders without Khalil Mack You're you're, not, that good well let. Me say let me take now we we need to think about whether the best defensive player, in the league not named Aaron Donald should be paid like he's the. Best player in the, league okay so now so now to make. That decision I'll take you to Chicago they've been terrible since, lovey Smith left they were smart enough to keep Vic Fangio as a d. coordinator their. Defense is actually improving they use their top five. Pick to draft roquan Smith guess who they haven't signed roquan Smith So it's so upset clearly in the NFL but they're playing some kind of game with him about you know the new helmet rule whether he, gets like but that's. That's, what Rocca's with, his talent that. He's going, to be it has been proven since day one since Khalil Mack been here without a. Lot not a lot of help in front of him on that. Defensive. Line it's, been proven that Khalil Mack it's, the best defender and when. Derek started to go sideways then he. Became the absolute best player on that team right you are seemingly. In win now mode because. You just gave Jon Gruden a whole lot of money to come back and and you know It gets brought out they've missed the playoffs fourteen fifteen years so and you moving to Vegas so you're you're kind of Showing impress mode you're not at the point where you have one person making coaching and personnel decisions you're not at the point. As, a, football team is a franchise as business entity. Where you can. Start saying to. Really good employees like Khalil Mack now man, we think, you might want too much, money that's just. Weird I'm with you and if you see yourself in that way no, disrespect it would in any. Way shape or form but if you see yourself in the way that was. Raiders that you you, cook it with gas, now you can. Make those kinds of decisions about, a talent, like Khalil Mack The deluding yourself so what's, really going on here because. The Rams got to play that game with Aaron Aaron Donald because the better Necessarily better than the. Raiders but they're, better than the raiders I. Think we're spinning their wheels you're not, you can't say, to, a talent, like Khalil Mack maybe. We, want we don't want you will, we'll, play, these financial gains with like. We may franchise you? You you you're. Not not you well I think what you're saying is hey raiders you don't have any, leverage, what are you doing Yes And if you're willing, to Do some unnecessary surgery to your face by cutting your nose off to prove that you have. Leverage or, there's some reason I mean. Say by this is weird see by thing play that game with Jimmy Garoppolo because they could've. Easily said I will franchise we'll see how. He does this full season once they recognize in the Niners. Were in a desperate situation like I think the raiders in a not very advantageous situation when the Niners recognized that they. Had a talented Jimmy Garoppolo they locked him, down with the quickness say didn't they didn't have time to play franchise tag games. Or let's wait and see. They needed a talented employees they acquired one through. Their own intelligence and shrewdness I think once they identified that he could play even if it was, in a short sample size here's, what they're paying. Quarterbacks nowadays here's an offer why the raiders are. Not doing it to Khalil Mack, is mind boggling to me here's what I would have done rather raiders I. Would have from day one I would have franchise him which gives them the average of the top. Five salaries at the position That would have got him. Into camp because I think this camp is incredibly important as you mentioned screwed coming back boss yes Franchise tag get. Him in camp he's under contract and then. As the season progressed I would have worked on a appropriate long term contract forum they would have kicked in after this year that's because what you can't have is exactly what is happening that your second best player is not at. Camp.

"Sean Merriman back joined now by FOX NFL analyst, Greg Jennings let's move to Oakland word today. Jon Gruden kicked off his first training camp since returning to the sidelines, but had the do it without their best defensive player. Probably their best player Khalil Mack holding out for a contract extension. In fact, Adam Schefter reports Gruden and MAC have yet to actually speak since John took the raiders job in January wit lock big deal to you. I'm gonna say no at the moment just because I just think it's a negotiating ploy by Khalil may. I think the reports are Gruden has reached out. He just hasn't gotten a response back from Khalil Mack. I just think Khalil Mack is playing hard ball. And so right now I'm just going to call her the standard, negotiating standoff. I'm not gonna read more into it that there is some kind of unrecoverable disconnect between. Gruden and Khalil Mack. There's also a report though they're miles apart miles apart, so I don't want to put it all on Khalil Mack. He's the best player defensively. He in von Miller, Aaron, Donald, or to the three best defensive players. Maybe in the league doesn't it seem weird if you took over a company? Two months in, I hadn't talked to my best employees. I mean, wouldn't you like Uber to his house? Knock on doors something. I mean something Nope should be showing up at his doorstep, not just a Texan. How you doing? Can we talk and no one? Can we talk you flout they'll you, you come and see him in this. This is shows a fact that a lot of things with this in by John grooten over the years with him players and some players not being able to trust him. He's the best height man. Best hype closer to ever came through the NFL ever. He can get the whole team hyped up in route and on the same page for his own benefit. But if you don't reach out to d- best defensive player in the National Football League, there's a problem and I know you. The coach you more worried about Derek Carr. You more worried about the wide receivers offense affront front, but Khalil Mack is a once in a lifetime player. You better. You got, you got to fix that. And if you don't fix that, that shows me what kind of coach them kind of person you are because he has an power, he signed a big deal so he can make some things happen in that far apart. You should be the one to say, we can't make it happen right now. We can't structure something, but we want you here and if he hasn't done that yet. That's a problem. Yeah, that's, that's my problem..
