King MMQB: On Doug Williams and Washington’s Front Office
The team promoted the beloved former quarterback to a prominent role, but ultimate power remains elsewhere in the organization, as the Kirk Cousins situation suggests. Plus mail on Bob Stoops, Hank Jr. and more
http://mmqb.si.com/mmqb/2017/06/14/doug-williams-washington-nfl-front-office-peter-king-mailbag

Breer MMQB: Pats Get Stronger, Beckham Is a Story, and the Meaning of ‘Voluntary’
"2. I think I’ve said what I’m going to say on Odell Beckham—If you’re denying that this is a story, you have your head in the clouds. This is one of the league’s biggest stars and most polarizing figures, playing in New York, deciding not to show up for the bulk of the off-season program coming off a playoff stinker—six days after his game-week hijinks in Miami—in the first year he’s eligible for a new deal. And that’s without even getting into the on-field fighting with Josh Norman, and the entire Bills roster before that. To pretend that Beckham didn’t make this bed for himself is to apologize for him. He wants a new contract, and I’ll never begrudge a professional football player for holding a hard line to get what he can while he’s still physically able to get it. In the NFL, it’s incumbent on players to do that. Just, again, don’t try to tell me this isn’t a story. Everything Beckham does is a story, and his leveraging to cash in would be one in November and December and January all the same as it is in June. Maybe he gets paid over the next couple months and has a monster year, and that would probably mean all of this is forgotten then. That doesn’t mean it’s not newsworthy now."
