When the doctors told me what was going on in November, I could feel my heart drop, Chancellor said in a recent tweet. The stiffness in my neck and the images that I saw had me at one of my lowest points. To walk away from the game by choice is one thing, to walk away from the game because of the risk of paralysis is another. Time for the next chapter.
Ironically, the Seahawks under Carroll were one of the first NFL teams to promote safer tackling as they educated their players and the football world in clinics and promos. Yet one of their star players is now retiring prematurely because he played the game aggressively, as per his nature.
The Rams went out and added Brandin Cooks from the Patriots, and the team believes his speed and consistency should fit in nicely.
I think you’ve just liked what you’ve seen overall, McVay said of Cooks. He’s got a great rapport already with Jared and he feels really good with the receiver group. I think he’s done a nice job kinda fitting into that room and really endearing himself to his teammates. We sure like him as coaches too.
Cooks will likely start alongside Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp next season after both enjoyed success in 2017. Josh Reynolds, Pharoh Cooper, and Mike Thomas will fight for playing time behind the starters.
Steve immediately alerted the team who in turn reported it to the NFL as required under the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. We are continuing to gather information and will handle the matter appropriately and in accordance with all league policies as well as within the legal system.
Keim, who has been with the Cardinals since 1999 and was promoted to GM in 2013, also released a statement saying he was sorry for his actions.
The Bears were also wise to go after a polished receiving tight end.
Trey Burton’s career highlight thus far is throwing the Philly Special TD pass to Nick Foles to help the Eagles beat the Patriots in Super Bowl 52. No longer serving as Zach Ertz’s elite backup, Burton with the Bears replaces Zach Miller as Nagy’s new Travis Kelce.
Burton is not much of a run blocker, but that does not mean much to Nagy. The tight end was signed to line up in non-traditional spots thanks to his Kelce-like, hybrid skill set.
