NFL Nuggets:

  • Relive the majesty.

    Likely solely brought in for the inevitable headlines when he was cut, the Bears have indeed cut Chris Blewitt from their kicker competition at camp, after only one day.

    • During a photo-op, all three kickers they brought in to camp for trials – Blewitt, Eddy Pineiro, & Elliott Fry – missed consecutive kicks from 42-yards.
    • Meanwhile, Robbie Gould continues to sit out Niners camp due to his franchise tag.
  • Seahawks news, because my feed is full:
    • Shaquem Griffin is going to be upgraded this season.
      • He will move off special teams and into the pass rush rotation as an edge rusher.
    • Pete Carroll expects convicted insider trader Mychal Kendricks to be on the roster sometime this season.
      • It doesn’t hurt that his sentencing hearing has been delayed multiple times, giving Carroll hope he might be eligible to play a good part of the season.
        • Also, ol’ Rog can’t do anything until the courts make up their minds. So Carroll is playing with house money.
        • Based on the size of the illegal trades, Kendricks – even with a plea – is looking at between 30-37 months in prison.
      • Also house money – Kendricks’ deal. According to ESPN:

He received no signing bonus and no guaranteed money. The $4.5 million base value of his deal includes $2 million in per-game active roster bonuses plus two bonuses worth $250,000 apiece that are tied to Kendricks reporting to training camp and being on the 53-man roster in Week 1. He could make an additional $1 million in incentives tied to playing time and sacks, bringing the max value of the deal to $5.5 million.

Finally, the Titans announced late today that they will be retiring the jersey numbers of Eddie George & Steve McNair.

The two of them combined for an 80-48 record in their time at Tennessee.

A failure, according to their head coach.

As the first (mostly) Titans to be given this honour, they will be joining the ranks of retired Oilers jerseys Jim Norton (No. 43), Elvin Bethea (No. 65), Earl Campbell (No. 34), Mike Munchak (No. 63), Bruce Matthews (No. 74), and Warren Moon (No. 1).

If you want to feel old, it’ll be 10 years (July 4, 2009) since Steve McNair was killed.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL: GAME 7, BAY-BAY!
    • Blues at Bruins – 8:00PM | NBC / CBC / Sportsnet

  • MLB:
    • Jays at Orioles – 7:00PM | Sportsnet1
    • Brewers at Astros – 8:00PM | ESPN / TSN3

Hottest day of the year so far, but I still have to wear my Bruins jersey to school.

The rest are Ukrainians.

Also, most of the Toronto Raptors are American negroes.
