Joe Namath Defends Kaepernick ‘He’s Good Enough to Be Signed!’

Posted on by

Colin Kaepernick is now getting support (sorta) from one of the greatest QBs of all time with Joe Namath saying the guy DESERVES to be on an NFL roster.

Broadway Joe appeared on Varney & Co. on FOX Business and went to bat for Kaep and Eric Reid who have both filed grievances against the NFL claiming they’ve been blackballed for kneeling.

Wide receiver: Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell are all coming off injury-marred seasons. The shot on Matthews in the slot helps restore some depth with Amendola and Cooks gone, but the Patriots should look to add a pass-catcher who can make big plays at either wideout or tight end.

That didn’t mean teams didn’t sniff around about the All-Pro safety. Seahawks general manager John Schneider said after the draft a number of clubs called about Thomas, and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Cowboys balked at giving up a second-round pick for the safety.

With those talks falling through, Schneider reiterated Thursday on 710 ESPN Seattle that he believes Thomas wants to be part of the Seahawks organization.

Shepley’s play has him ranked as one of the CFL’s top prospects but he has his sights set even higher — to potentially make an NFL roster.

Ryan, who will turn 33 on May 17, was entering the final year of a five-year, $103.75 million extension he signed in July 2013.

Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins set the previous record for average annual salary ($28 million), followed by San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo ($27.5 million) and Detroit’s Matthew Stafford ($27 million).

In order to make it work, the Packers need to draft a potential outside upgrade from Geromino Allison and DeAngelo Yancey to start opposite Adams. As good as Nelson had been in the slot of late, Cobb is the more traditional impact player at the position. The chemistry with Rodgers is there, too, and the Packers wisely figured Cobb could be the better producer for them in the short term.

Cobb is the final year of his contract with a chance to prove he remains a vital cog in Green Bay’s passing game. The one-time Pro Bowler will take advantage of it.

Iowa State DB Nigel Tribune arrested for OWI

Posted on by

In a statement, first-year Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell said Tribune has been suspended indefinitely.

“We are aware of the charges filed against Nigel and we are in the process of gathering more information,” Campbell’s statement said. “Nigel has been suspended indefinitely from the football team under the student-athlete code of conduct policy.”

Tribune has seen significant action in each of his three seasons with the program. He was the only true freshman to play for the Cyclones in 2013, when he played in 10 games, starting seven, and totaled 30 tackles and an interception. In 2014, he started all 11 games at cornerback and had 64 tackles, three interceptions. He also had 13 pass breakups on the season – sixth-best in the country.

Tribune played in 11 games (eight starts) in 2015 and had 37 tackles, seven pass breakups, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

The Cyclones open up the 2016 campaign at home against Northern Iowa on Sept. 3.

Colin Kaepernick is healthy just in time for his training-camp battle with Blaine Gabbert.

For the first time since undergoing three surgeries, reported Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Kaepernick received medical clearance from his Colorado doctor for full participation in practices.

Meanwhile, Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden will open camp on the PUP because of an ankle issue. Haden was limited to just five starts last season due to multiple injuries and concussion problems.

Gordon was at the complex Tuesday and met with coach Hue Jackson, executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown and other members of the franchise.

Franchise player Eric Berry won’t be the only Kansas City Chiefs defensive star missing from the start of training camp.

Coach Andy Reid told reporters Tuesday that he doesn’t expect outside linebacker Justin Houston to participate in camp.

Ware and West signing identical three-year, $4.2 million deals (worth a maximum of $8.2 million with salary escalators) suggests that the Chiefs have a succession plan in place at running back. Charles is scheduled to make $6 million this year in his comeback with two reconstructed knees where he turns 30 years old late in the season. The $6 million includes a $2 million bonus for reporting to training camp. Charles could be asked to take a pay cut where this $2 million bonus is converted into not-likely-to-be-earned incentives, which could be earned back by performance, to lower his $5,312,500 cap number.
