The old-school Jacksonville Jaguars are going to look like they play in 2018.
Not long after, Marshall posted a video on Instagram of him sliding his nameplate off his Giants locker for good.
The move was expected much earlier in the offseason. Gettleman said the Giants released Marshall with a designation of failed physical. Gettleman, asked if he would be interested in free agent receiver Dez Bryant, said: I have interest in everybody. We do our film work, and you never know.
Cutting Marshall clears $5.1 million in salary cap space the Giants will need if they’re going to increase Odell Beckham Jr.’s scheduled $8.4 million 2018 cap hit to $17 million or so on a long-term extension.
Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky can see a huge difference after only three days running new coach Matt Nagy’s offense.
There’s more to it than just the system for Trubisky, as the Bears ended their first minicamp under Nagy on Thursday with a greater knowledge of an offense they hope eventually elevates them from the depths of the NFC North.
By now, you know the top four quarterback prospects heading into the 2018 NFL draft. It would be surprising to see any one of Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen or Baker Mayfield available after the top 10 picks at this point. Maybe even the top five.
Beyond them, the athletic intrigue around Lamar Jackson likely will earn him a first-round selection. Early in Day 2, Mason Rudolph shouldn’t have to wait long to hear his name.
That link makes plenty of sense. Though Tom Brady is still producing his on-field magic after another MVP season in 2017, he’ll turn 41 in August.
The salary-cap reality of paying Jimmy Garoppolo forced the Patriots to trade him in October, leaving them in need of a new long-term succession plan. Lauletta would fit well with them, or a team in a similar situation, after he averaged 8.8 yards per attempt throughout his collegiate career.
