NFL News:

  • The Bengals have released safety George Iloka.
    • Iloka is due $5.3 million in salary and roster bonuses this season, and it appears GM & Cincinnati local playhouse Scrooge Mike Brown would prefer to pay their second-round rookie Jesse Bates instead.
    • Iloka has his own sanguine outlook:

  • In a move that clearly bodes well for my ticket resale value, the Seahawks tried to acquire Jacoby Brissett from the Colts.
    • They offered a second round pick in 2019, but the Colts want to keep him & his 4-11 2017 record under wraps.
  • Seemingly available is Teddy Bridgewater from the Jets.
    • The Jets are so impressed with Sam Darnold that they appear willing to part with a QB that could help them if things go into the shitter.
      • (Ron Howard voice:) They will.
    • It’s because Bridgewater is the more-attractive trade bait.
      • Josh McCown is 39 & has a $10 million guaranteed contract.
      • Teddy is 25 & worth $5 million plus incentives
  • Not speaking of collusion or better available players, John Elway is in hot water for allegedly violating a court order in the Kaepernick collusion case.
    • When talking about looking for a backup QB – since Paxton Lynch isn’t exactly working out – he was asked about “The Kneeing Bandit” ™
      • “Colin had his chance here. We offered him a contract. He didn’t take it. So, as I said it in my deposition, I don’t know if I’ll be legally able to say this, but he’s had his chance to be here. He passed it.”
      • The problem is, a month later he made the same deal available to Brock Osweiler without conditions.
        • By bringing all of this up at a presser, he violated the court order against public discussion of the case.
    • He potentially made the public, and the court, more aware of a conspiracy to keep Kaepernick out of the League.

The fact that the FLOTUS picked “Cyber Bullying” as her main cause to champion (including a public speech today) should help explain why POTUS is so angry lately. He ain’t gettin any.

Damn, that was a good cover. I really like her work, but I didn’t think she could pull this off, but she did a damn good job.
