Let’s get to it Philadelphia Eagles links …
The Redskins will release the team’s name tomorrow, Dan Snyder announces new name at a later date – Hogs Haven
The Redskins will no longer use that name after [Monday] according to Ben Fischer of Sports Business Daily and confirmed by several other reports. Dan Snyder is reportedly leaving the name of a press conference tomorrow morning. The team is not expected to announce its new name until a later date due to pending trademarks.
Brian Baldinger hears whispers about the Eagles making a big move this week ̵
Hmm. What do you know, Baldy? One can only guess what he is implying here. Jadeveon Clowney is still on the market and it has been talked about that his price tag is dropping. Can the Eagles really be the team to sign him? I doubt but maybe they’ll actually pull the trigger. They were previously rumored to be interested in him. Maybe it’s not Clowney but Everson Griffen instead?
Winner of the season, including QB Carson Wentz, with an eye on Training Camp – PE.com
Quarterback Carson Wentz is grounded for a great season because the Eagles have built around him, giving in particular the wide receiver position with three draft picks and the acquisition of veteran Marquise Goodwin. He has had a pretty eventful and impressive season also after recovering from the concussion that resulted in the playoffs against Seattle. He has become a dad, he has invested in the community that reaches those affected by COVID-19, he immediately showed his class and leadership when Eagles made quarterback Jalen Hurts a draft of the second round and Wentz talked the team in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
If DeSean Jackson is seated, the Eagles have an exciting but risky alternative – NBCSP
Jalen Reagor has the potential to become a big game threat, but he is still an unknown amount, a beginner without a season program and perhaps without a preseason game. Quez Watkins and John Hightower are fast, but it is never easy for late rounds to get on the pitch, more this year. The reality is that the Eagles need Jackson on the field. A healthy Goodwin is the second best option. But based on his recent history, it’s not one they can depend on.
‘Valentine’s Views:’ COVID-19 tanks, DeAndre Baker, more – Big Blue View
I honestly do not know who or what to believe on this point. The only thing I know is that I can’t see how Baker can be a member of the Giants for much longer. When the Giants inevitably cut ties with the 22-year-old, the Baker saga will definitely become a spot on the Giants legacy of GM Dave Gettleman after he traded away two drafts to move up and get Baker in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Source: Dak Prescott, Cowboys “not close” to reach multi-year contract as deadline approaches – Dallas Morning News
The decision day for the Cowboys and Dak Prescott is fast approaching. The NFL deadline for all players who have been franchised to complete a multi-year contract is at 3pm on Wednesday. Prescott, whom the Cowboys struck with the exclusive franchise tag, has until then agreed to an agreement with the Cowboys. Whether the Cowboys and their star quarterback will agree to the terms, however, seems to be questioned. A source told The Dallas Morning News’ Calvin Watkins that the Cowboys are “not close” to reaching a multi-year deal with Prescott.
Winner and loser from Patrick Mahome’s contract extension – NFL.com
Trends down – The Cowboys front office: They waited too long. Just like Washington with Kirk Cousins, the Cowboys could get stuck and pay huge bucks on the franchise tag without ever unlocking their quarterback. The difference here is Dak Prescott’s roof is higher than Cousins and probably the Cowboys actually want to keep Prescott. The Cowboys have until July 15 to sign Prescott to a long-term contract or he will play this season for one year, $ 31.4 million as the team’s exclusive franchisee. It’s a relative bargain for Dallas, but I’m confused why it plays this game so deeply into the season. Mahomes just raised the bar that Prescott fits under.
Aaron Rodgers: “Shall we have a season?” – PFT
“I think we’re supposed to have a season?” Rodgers like that. “I think there are many things that are yet to be calculated. We are hopeful, we are hopeful that there are fans and we can get all the test procedures as far as they want it as much as possible. But I think we’re kind of watering the league and [NFL Players Association] to figure out some things. “
The Plan to Start the NFL Season 2020: What We Know and What We Don’t Know – ESPN
Can the NFL get off to a direct start at training camp, much less a season? Meanwhile, since Pash made its announcement, the US equalized its daily virus count – only to see an increase in infections and hospitalizations this summer in southern states. Major League Soccer and the National Women’s Soccer League are the only major professional team sports to make it back on the field, although MLB, NBA and NHL have entered the early stages of their return.
NFL and NFLPA Trading Proposals on Covid Impact – Over the Cap
After months of avoiding the potentially devastating effects of the Covid pandemic on the NFL, the league and the NFL Players Association are finally at the negotiating table trying to sort things out. Both sides need some clarity on the issues – the teams need to know the rules for scheduling and budgeting and players need to know the risks of playing this season and how it can affect them in the future. Here are some of the little things that have come out so far and some other issues that they still need to discuss
My patient caught Covid-19 twice. So long to jump immunity hope. – Vox
“Wait. Can I catch Covid twice?” Asked my 50-year-old patient in disbelief. It was early July, and he had just tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, for a second time – three months after a previous infection, there is still much that we do not understand about immunity to this new disease, but a small but growing number of cases that he suggests the answer is “yes.” Covid-19 may also be much worse the second time During his first infection, my patient had a mild cough and sore throat, but his second infection, however, was characterized by high fever, shortness of breath and hypoxia, which resulted in several trips to the hospital.
