NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Melvin Gordon has agreed to terms a two-year, $16 million contract with the Denver Broncos, per a source informed of the deal. Gordon’s deal includes $13.5 million guaranteed.
The former first-round pick had been a do-it-all back for Los Angeles, running for 4,240 yards and 36 TDs, with 1,873 receiving yards and 11 additional scores on 224 receptions in five seasons.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have reached a two-year, $12 million deal with tight end Eric Ebron, NFL Network reports.
Some guys are lost without their trainers, as they need that guidance, while others are just fine, as working out on their own is simply them in their element. Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner apparently falls into that category. He’s working out in the wilderness, throwing logs all over the place.
The Washington Redskins appear to need a quarterback, as the new coaching staff doesn’t appear to be all that fond of Dwayne Haskins, who the team drafted in the first-round last season.
Haskins showed a bit of promise, but he’s also a long-term project with a lot of development needed, and he clearly isn’t NFL-ready. As such, the team appears to be looking to sign a bridge quarterback in the meantime.
Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, who’s on the market, and would likely come on the cheap could be a fit.
The New Orleans Saints announced today that they have agreed to terms on a five-year contract with G/T Andrus Peat. The announcement was made by Saints’ Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.
Tom Brady has a new elite wide receiver to throw to — who happens to wear the former New England Patriots quarterback’s number.
Buccaneers wideout Chris Godwin (No. 12 on Tampa Bay’s roster) led the team in 2019 with 86 receptions for 1,333 receiving yards, third-most in the NFL.
That kind of talent earns you a call from the GOAT. Shortly after Brady made his signing official, Godwin told Buccaneers.com’s Casey Phillips that he and Brady recently had a productive phone call.
Former Detroit Lions tight end Garrett Hudson had harsh criticism for head coach Matt Patricia following comments made by Darius Slay.
After ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Slay had been traded by the Lions to the Philadelphia Eagles, the three-time Pro Bowler told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press he lost respect for Patricia stemming from a 2018 incident in which he showed the team clips of him being beaten in coverage.
As the Baltimore Ravens continue to restructure their defense, they find themselves at a trading post with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to multiple NFL reports. Not minutes later following the initial report, the deal is being finalized according to NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero.
The new NFL-NFLPA collective bargaining agreement takes the league through 2030 and paints a picture of a future with owners and players profiting off bets placed by gamblers at sportsbooks inside stadiums.
After decades of staunch opposition to sports betting, allowing sportsbooks in stadiums is a seismic shift in the league’s position and something few stakeholders in the gambling industry saw coming. In the years ahead, NFL owners could be competing with bookmakers for a share of the growing American sports betting market.
