5th year option is a good draft grade measurement. I would like to see the stats on that over the years since that came into play.

Leonard Floyd on the Bears got his but I think it should have been a tough decision. He still has potential and has shown improvement and flashes but the year 5 salary is around 14M. Not sure he is worth that.

The Bears declined the 5th year option on Kyle Fuller a couple of years ago and then in year 4, he got quite a bit better so they regretted it. The Bears ended up matching the packers offer and paid him a higher salary on a 4 year deal

Every 1st rounder looks like a star and future pro bowler every year, but obviously that is not the case in reality.

Tyreek Hill is back in the news....
Review - two times in March and or April the police had to go to Hill's residence due to cases of child abuse. In one Hill was not mentioned as a suspect at all, I do believe he was in the 2nd.
Secondly - the police have reviewed the case, and due to lack of evidence to prove who did the action - no charges will be filed for the broken arm of the young child. But the child has been taken to a foster home and custody has been removed from both parents.
Thirdly - DA claims in public statement they know a crime was committed, but they can't prove who did it, they did not implicate that neither parent was supportive or helpful though.
Fourthly - a very damning audio tape is sent to a local TV station covering the story - implying that Hill is the cause of the injuries to their child and he also threatens the Fiance'
Fifthly - A report is now out that in March Hill had to call the ambulance to the residence due to finding the Fiance passed out in the residence and the young child unattended - and she remained in the hospital for a few days - for what is not reported

Now - Hill's Lawyer has sent a 4 page letter to the NFL (mysteriously leaked...) basically denying any involvement by Hill in the abuse and basically blaming the Fiance for the issues, including Texts where she admits harm

So, I am starting to wonder here - if both aren't they issue, and due to that, they can't find evidence to prove one or the other....thus nothing will be done. I wonder if Hill gets out of this with a slap on the wrist?

I hope not, if he is guilty of hurting that child...he should be sent to prison.

Oh and Arizona is playing we don't communicate between HC and GM...
When asked if Kyler Murray is a lock to start this year - Kingsbury basically said that is not locked or determined yet, and they have Hundley if needed. In a different interview, Keim said emphatically that Murray will start. Oops...

The audio clip is damning so I have a hard time believing Hill's claim of innocence.
I don't know, they have texts in this letter that clearly calls out she is the one responsible. In the end, I would not be shocked to see both are culpable, which is horrible for the kid

Okay, ESPN has an article on this, and it includes the letter. First I get this is Hill's attorney and he is doing his job by denying these allegations. However, he raises some very pertinent issues and I am beginning to see why the Chiefs and the NFL have not moved forward with any more actions. I am not sure this is going to be solved anytime soon.

Not a ton of news that is really news worthy,
Teams seem to be moving quicker to get draft picks signed and some as high as first rounders have already signed.
Washington may be down to just 2 Qbs this year, A.Smith is still a mystery, and now Colt McCoy is also having issues with his broken leg, and could not be available until August at best. Looks like this could be Keenum vs. Haskins only...
Bucs have signed Rb Kerwynn Williams formerly of Arizona
the XFL got TV agreements with ABC, Fox and some cable networks for multiple years to cover games - maybe they can make spring football a reality?

Some cable networks? That's the most generic way I've ever heard ESPN talked about.

The Network deals are for ABC, Fox, ESPN, and a very select number of games on Fox Sports 1.
