With my Pro Day up at Boston College next week on March 12, I’m beginning to see that all this work and effort finally has a goal.
Coaches under the new proposal would have to choose between a PAT spotted on the 25-yard line or the traditional two-point conversion, according to Judy Battista of NFL.com.
“It’s an atrocious idea,” the Pro Bowler said. “It’s almost racist to me. It’s weird they’re targeting one specific word. Why wouldn’t all curse words be banned then?”
“He’s special,” Namath said. “Some of the things in life that athletes, people in the public eye go through, I can relate to a bit. But his career, where he’s been, what he’s done, I can’t relate to all that.”
The New York Jets have put the franchise tag on kicker Nick Folk, which will ensure the player known as “Folk Hero” will be paid among the top five kickers in the league. And now the Jets are showing him the money. But they need to show him more.
Nick Folk kicked his way to a big pay raise with the New York Jets. The Jets placed the franchise tag on the reliable kicker Friday after he had perhaps the best season of his seven-year NFL career.
Vick can hurl a ball across area codes, while we’re still not sold on Smith’s arm. Vick may not run a 4.2 40-yard dash anymore, but he probably runs a robust 4.4. Smith often runs like he’s wearing snowshoes.
Simms said the Jets would be crazy to use a pick early on a quarterback, further enforcing the belief that the best way to get the most out of Smith in his second year is to sign a capable veteran free agent to challenge him.
The end of the Santonio Holmes era with the Jets is reportedly about to happen. The volatile wide receiver could be cut over the next few days, freeing the Jets from their $8.25 million commitment to him in 2014.
As far as the fans and many in the media go, it is almost a foregone conclusion that Mark Sanchez will not return to the Jets for a sixth season. And yet it may not be that simple. Nor, frankly, should it be.
Teams are “exploring” the market for Revis and “rival executives believe a deal could be possible,” Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported.
For all those who believe the Jets need a legitimate veteran quarterback to push incumbent Geno Smith in training camp, there might be a solution in the works. Michael Vick, anyone?
Each week, Naples will blog exclusively for CBS New York on his draft process, taking us into the life of a prospect up through being signed by an NFL team.
“The reality is that this is a tough sport played by tough men,” the Packers linebacker said Tuesday on WFAN radio. “It’s an emotional sport as well, and tempers fly.”
The GOP strategist’s comments were met with a mix of outrage and bewilderment. One person tweeted, “History will not look kindly upon you Mr. Jack Burkman. Shame on you.”
