If you’re of a certain age, you’ll recall Karl Malone being the unstoppable power forward in the NBA.
If you’re of that age, this story will make you feel old.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans signed undrafted free agent tackle K.J. Malone from LSU.
K.J. nearly skipped his final year of football at LSU to enter law enforcement, but is apparently ready to delay those plans a bit.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert on Wednesday revealed the injured linebacker won’t play in 2018 but there will be some sort of designation for him so he can still remain a part of the team.
“Ryan Shazier won’t play in 2018. He knows that. We know that,” Colbert told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Shazier is still recovering from a serious spinal injury suffered in a Dec. 4 game against the Bengals that required spinal stabilization surgery on Dec. 6. He was released from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Rehabilitation Institute earlier this month.
Shazier, 25, will enter the fifth year on his initial contract next season. After earning $9.56 million over his first NFL seasons, the two-time Pro Bowler will count $8.7 million against the Steelers’ salary cap after the team exercised the fifth-year option on his rookie contract last year.
Bass appeared in 15 games last season – 13 with the Jets and two with the Seattle Seahawks – recording a career-high 3.5 sacks and 26 total tackles. Bass is getting set to enter his sixth season and has spent time with the Jets, Seahawks, Tennessee Titans and Chicago Bears.
Meanwhile, the Jets still have 12 receivers on the roster following the release of Marshall, Natson and Stringfellow.
This implies that he has moments where he’s not happy. Even if Brady’s effort to take the fifth was a joke (and it possibly was), he should have made it very clear that he was joking — especially since he didn’t ultimately answer the question regarding whether he feels appreciated with something like, “Yes, they appreciate me. They pay me great money to do something I’d do for free. They give me everything I need to be successful.”
