The Steelers signed 13 rookie free agents after the draft ended on Saturday and three of them will be staying in Pennsylvania after playing their college ball in the state.
Wide receiver Quadree Henderson has the shortest trip of the trio. He played at Pittsburgh and returned a pair of punts for touchdowns during the 2017 season. He had seven return touchdowns over the course of his career, so he should get a look on special teams once he starts practicing with the team.
Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia, as well as the team’s leadership, released statements late Wednesday evening reacting to The Detroit News’ report Patricia had been indicted, but not tried, for an alleged sexual assault in 1996.
As someone who was falsely accused of this very serious charge over 22 years ago, and never given the opportunity to defend myself and clear my name, I find it incredibly unfair, disappointing, and frustrating that this story would resurface now with the only purpose being to damage my character and reputation, Patricia wrote in a statement.
With no teams showing significant interest in Bryant, maybe he eventually decides to take the veteran minimum simply to prove his Dallas doubters wrong. And maybe, if he’s willing to play for the minimum, other currently uninterested teams in the NFC East suddenly will become very interested.
Regardless of whether (and where) Bryant finds a team, a frank explanation of how and why Dez no longer has it serves no purpose for the Cowboys. If he truly no longer has it, that will become clear in 2018. If he still does, the Cowboys will look bad, and Dez will be feeling pretty good.
The other thing I’ve learned about quarterbacks that’s super important—as long as they’re your quarterback, even if you have stretches where you’re angry with them, they need to know you believe in them. Eli needs to feel that we believe in him, because we do. The Giants have done more than told the world that now; they’ve shown it. And that sets up an interesting couple years for a proud franchise looking to rebound.
