Andy Reid on Tyreek pushing his position coach: “They were messing around. I know how it came off, but if you look at a minute later, they’re laughing over there. If you talk to both of them, they’ll tell you they were just messing around."

Only a maniac takes their chances with the Waldo speed trap.

Still a great interview even from six feet away. One of the best talkers in the league. Thanks as always, @tkelce .

Just talked to Jared Goff — he has already spoken to Lions coach Dan Campbell and several other members of the Lions’ staff. Based on those conversations, they very clearly view him as their starter moving forward. Physical coming soon. Sounds like they’re fired up to have him.

Alex Smith received 49 of 50 votes, per AP. Ben Roethlisberger received the 50th. Had no idea Big Ben’s mom had a vote.

Thread: I’d mentioned a few stats to Tom Brady a few weeks back, pointing toward late progress with the Bucs’ offense, and his response was telling: “Just wait until next year.” Today is far from a curtain call in his mind. Me? I believe it’s merely the start of the chapter.

I’m telling you, never judge a Super Bowl on the 1st quarter. The energy in these stadiums — the adrenaline in these bodies — is so difficult to digest. Step 2: Figuring out how to capture momentum with all of the breaks. It’s not a normal football game, no matter what they say.

Departures from Houston since Jack Easterby was hired in April 2019: - GM Brian Gaine - WR DeAndre Hopkins - HC Bill O’Brien - Head of PR Amy Palcic - President Jamey Rootes - Team captain JJ Watt Each move deserves individual evaluation… but just look at those job titles.

Tom Brady just quietly approached a security guard waiting outside the Chiefs’ locker room — and asked if he could see Patrick Mahomes. Brady was escorted into a room where he spoke briefly with him. A very clear display of respect from one incredible quarterback to another.

I just got an email from Antonio Brown. He tells me the team “took away my guarantees.” He added there’s “no way I play after they took that and made my contract week to week.” So at this moment, once again, don’t expect AB to play on Monday Night Football.

Well, my daughter just dropped Jesus in the school play. 🤦🏻‍♂️

I’m a little hesitant to share, so I hope it’s ok. But in the wake of Edward Aschoff’s passing, maybe his memory can motivate someone who sees this. It’s an email from 2007. He’d become one of ESPN’s top college football reporters. Chase your passions… even in the face of risk.

Jags CB Jalen Ramsey: “I was wondering why they were so confident. We stung their ass last time.” ...Were they mad about the disrespect? “We don’t give a f***. We really don’t care.”

Dolphins coach Brian Flores with the silver lining of a virtual NFL Draft: "It’s been a lot of fun, actually. I haven’t spent this much time with my family – my kids, my wife – in a long time. It’s been great to sit down and eat dinner, to help my kids with their homework."

If I’m @TheRock  (I’m not @TheRock ), I’m watching very closely to see what happens with NCAA. A cancelled season creates the biggest vacuum for an NFL farm league we’ve ever seen. Get a 6-8 team XFL bubble, recruit juniors & seniors — and give unprecedented access to NFL scouts.

Kyrie for Garoppolo makes a lot of sense. Cleveland finally gets its quarterback. Kyrie back to scoring 25 ppg for a championship team.
