King MMQB: On Dan, Dean and the Draft
Roger Goodell remembers Dan Rooney, the late Steelers owner and an NFL treasure. Plus a closer look at the Dean Blandino mess in the NFL office and 10 draft tidbits, including how the Browns could pick 1 and 2
"5. I think the situation doesn’t look good for Eli Manning, based on the email he allegedly sent to a Giants’ equipment manager asking for two jerseys that could pass as game-used in 2010. There’s still much to be discovered here. But the advice I’d give to anyone about to buy stuff they think is game-worn or authentic is this: Don’t. I once saw a quarterback sign a jersey for a teammate, then sign a form (feeling awful about it) saying it was game-used. He did it because he didn’t want to be known as a guy who wouldn’t help out teammates when they had fund-raisers, and the teammate in this case cajoled him strongly to do it because “game-used” would fetch more money. I once suspected that an administrative assistant in a football coaches’ office was being paid to sign different players’ autographs on cards and photos for people who mailed in requests. In other words, I wouldn’t trust the authenticity of an autograph unless I witnessed it being signed."

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/04/17/49ers-make-move-on-seahawks-ot-garry-gilliam/

SEATTLE
Kapadia ESPN Seattle: Seahawks RFA Garry Gilliam has signed an offer sheet for a one-year deal with the 49ers, per a league source. Gilliam, 26, has started 29 games at right tackle for Seattle over the past two seasons. The Seahawks have five days to match the offer. Seattle offered Gilliam the lowest tender at $1.797 million, but that salary would not be guaranteed. If the Seahawks choose not to match San Francisco's offer, they will receive no compensation in return. The 49ers initially offered Gilliam a multi-year deal, which he turned down. A one-year contract would allow him to still hit free agency next offseason at the age of 27.

Preach on brother, sadly the young man still doesn't get it.
It has nothing to do with football as he Cannizzaro states, that's irrelevant, he was called out by the GM after the playoff game. Beckham still needs to grow the hell up!
I gave him a pass on going to Duke with Eli and the others
as well, so it's not 'Beckham bashing'. One gets tired of
reading things for the wrong reasons.

OBJ is who he is and will be for the foreseeable future. He's had some klunker games but he's one of the best around. This could be a monster year for him with Marshall around, imv..I don't care what he does on his off time as long as he brings it on the field

Try actually reading Cannizzaro's article before replying.
We are talking about kids here, who more than likely look up to him, don't you think? Then the sponsor had to send another plane, because the diva was too busy at Coachella,
and was an hour and a half late.
The diva couldn't 'get away' from a concert on the
West Coast, again read the article!
BTW, do you ever say anything bad about any Giants player?
My goodness, what a shill of a fan you are.
I would be TOO embarrassed to be that much of a pom pom waiver for ANY team I like.
If Carson has something negative to say, here is BB56, let's protect our Giants, LOL! Dude, you have zero credibility with me, just saying. You are not alone, there are about half dozen others on here that I feel the same way about.
The article has really nothing to do with football,
it's about his maturity or lack thereof!
