Jameis Winston underwent lasik surgery to repair his vision. Long been believed he had issues seeing in multiple online videos of him squinting on the sidelines during games trying to see the video screens.


The jokes almost write themselves

Here's an interesting one floating around. Rumors are out there saying that the Bears are considering trading Khalil Mack to the Redskins for the number 2 overall pick.

While anything is possible, Mack would have a 48M dead money cap hit if traded or released right now. I don't think there is any way around that. At this time of year there is a lot of sports writers making up their own rumours without spending 5 minutes to see if it makes sense or if there is actually any mumblings at all.

What is real is that the Bears want and need to upgrade their QB situation. While Trubisky is the starter for now, he will be on a short leash and the Bears want a viable backup that they can turn to in case they need it. Its similar to Tennessee last year with Mariota.

Chicago also has some easy cuts that they should make in the near future that will get them over 40M in cap space. Leonard Floyd and Prince Akumara in particular.
