Reports say that Ronald Jones has been working diligently on his pass catching skills. Here's to hoping they have spent time teaching the kid to pass block. Also he has "beefed up."

Rumors flying that the Seahawks offered Wilson for Browns #1 pick in 2018.

No idea why this is relevant now...
Okay I can back fill, yes this DID happen. Before Wilson got his latest contract extension, Seattle and Cleveland did talk in 2018 for the #1 pick. NO agreement was made, and history shows us Cleveland went with Mayfield. However, it is why Wilson has a no-trade clause in his current contract.

This was all shared on PFT on TV when they were talking "un-trade-able" players.

More details:

TMZ has the details on what happened.

Dunbar and Baker were at a cookout in Miramar, Florida on May 13th when argument broke out and Baker took out a semi-automatic firearm.

Cops say Dunbar assisted in taking watches and other valuables at the direction of Baker.Cops say Baker directed a 3rd man to shoot someone who had just walked into the party.

Per the report, Baker and Dunbar came away out four watches: A Rolex (valued at $18K), a Hubolt ($25K), an Audemars Piguet ($17.5K) and a knock-off Richard Mille ($600). Victims allege they had $12,800 in cash also stolen.

Some people at the party believe it was a planned robbery because when the 3 men were done taking valuables, there were 3 getaway cars strategically positioned to “expedite an immediate departure.”

One witness told cops they met Baker and Dunbar a few days earlier and the two players lost around $70,000 at a party. Circumstances of which are unclear in the report.

Baker was a first-round pick of the Giants in 2019. Dunbar was traded to Seattle for a fifth-round pick earlier this offseason.

According to Dan Duggan of The Athletic, Baker didn’t participate in the Giants’ virtual meeting today or any of the other meetings during the team’s voluntary minicamp this week.

Commissioner Roger Goodell released a memo stating "clubs may reopen their facilities beginning on May 19."

No players (except for medical/rehab purposes) or coaches will be allowed to show up yet, but it's a start. Goodell added this can only be followed if state and local regulations allow them to do so. There are restrictions on the percentage of the staff that can show up (no more than 50 percent) and for the total number of people in the facility (75). It seems to be a positive development in the league's quest to start the 2020 season on time.

Redskins WR Cody Latimer was taken into custody in Douglas County, Colorado on Saturday.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office was called to the Zenith Meridian Apartments in Englewood, CO on a call of shots fired indoors. Latimer was taken into custody on charges of assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon, and reckless endangerment. He's currently being held on a $25,000 bond. Given the charges, his place on Washington's roster is in doubt.

The NFL will now require teams to interview at least two minority candidates for head-coaching openings moving forward.

That is an upgrade from the previous requirement of one minority candidate since the implementation of the Rooney Rule. Now broken, teams have simply been handing out interviews to minorities knowing they weren’t going to get the job. This will hopefully improve things. Additionally, teams will now have to interview a minority for open coordinator jobs. That wasn’t part of the original Rooney Rule.

More racial quotas.

- Lawyers for both Baker and Dunbar expect charges to be dropped, evidently those who said they did it aren't exactly the best of society, and have some kind of criminal records.
- Michael Thomas and DeVante Parker got into on instagram - Lets just say Thomas is NOT a big fan of Parker.. :D
- More good news about Big Ben - he got a shave and a hair cut, and is already throwing to Wrs and Rbs - Needs a come back season for Pittsburgh
- Ty Montgomery has signed with Saints and feels he has found a team to learn with - yeah but at Rb or Wr??

NFLPA medical director Thom Mayer said the league and union are working on an N95-like device to use on face masks for when players return.

"These modified face masks, which may include some form of either surgical or N95-like material in it, for a player...getting the helmet off, putting the mask right on afterwards, maintaining social distancing when not on the field as much as possible, using single-use hydration whether it be water or Gatorade...just every little detail anybody who's got a risk, I'd advise them to be zealous, religious, and frankly maniacally committed to minimizing the chance of spreading the virus," Mayer said. The league will undoubtedly instill some form of protection for players upon returning, and that likely won't end with upgraded face masks to wear on the field and along the sidelines. Viewers should continue to prepare for a very unique season.
