NFL


Breer MMQB: The 2018 Free Agency Crop Isn’t All That Great. Here’s Why It Will Be The Start of League Trend
“The Rams trading Alec Ogletree just five months after giving him a four-year, $42.75 million deal isn’t Los Angeles saying he can’t play. He wasn’t always the most consistent player, but this is more about the value that Wade Phillips puts in inside linebackers in his defense. As it’s set up, resources are better allocated in perimeter players—edge-rushing outside linebackers and corners. So maybe a change of scenery, and back to a 4-3, will help Ogletree.
And if it does, the Giants just fixed a hole that’s been there on their roster forever. Some teams don’t value off-ball linebackers at the level that Ogeltree is being compensated. But new Giants GM Dave Gettleman does, and his willingness to pay both Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis in Carolina is proof positive of that.”

https://theundefeated.com/features/josh-rosen-ucla-quarterback-gets-a-taste-of-what-outspoken-black-athletes-experience-all-the-time/

Holder Ind Star: Some of the same concerns about Rosen could have been applied to Andrew Luck. Privileged childhood, interested in many other things, etc. He just did a great job of balancing it all w an ultra competitiveness so no one cared. Talent should trump all else IMO. The one big difference, I will admit, is that Luck is not outspoken about anything, esp politics. But he definitely has some pretty strong held beliefs/opinions.
