#Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts (11:55) details his wild journey on RapSheet + Friends: “It’s all unprecedented. It doesn’t happen every day, it’s never happened before. ... I’ve learned the value of appreciation.” More from him, Jordan Love, Javon Kinlaw here:

This is probably the most consequential outcome for this year: If the players approve, two tags turn into just one. Huge news for the #Cowboys , #Bucs , #Titans  and others.

This is a good sign for tomorrow’s vote for the players. One hard issue appears to be solved.

Just saying, this was a difficult issue anyway. Ok, back to the slopes

Sources: The #Ravens  have signed defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale to a new 3-year contract making him the highest paid DC in the league. Richly deserved for a coach they believe will be a top head coach candidate next offseason.


Sources: The #Steelers  are closing in on a deal to send star WR Antonio Brown to the Buffalo #Bills . There it is.

The #Raiders  have released WR Antonio Brown. Wow.

#Chiefs coach Andy Reid has 9 grandkids. He was asked about them: “They keep you young. And at the same time they make you feel old. It’s kind of like sweet and sour pork.” Poetry.

Wow. Cleveland is trying to trade for Kirk Cousins. This is real.

Sources: #Texans  QB fear Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL in practice today. A non-contact injury. MRI coming to confirm. Awful, awful.

Just got off the phone with an emotional Freddie Kitchens. He believed he had organizational support. He did not.

The #Cowboys  & RB Ezekiel Elliott agree on a 6-year, $90M extension that makes him the highest-paid RB in the NFL, sources tell me and @SlaterNFL . Roughly half guaranteed. In all, it's $103M over 8 years—the 1st Cowboy to eclipse $100M in total value, the richest RB contract.
