Thus, during SEC Media Days on Monday, Fisher was asked about Winston’s three-game NFL suspension.
I don’t know the circumstances with Jameis, Fisher said, via Ben Baby of the Dallas Morning News. I love Jameis. Hopefully he’ll be able to move on and obviously, that is something that he will be able to move on from. And yes, I love him. I still think he’s a tremendous young man. I really do.
Last season, running back Ty Montgomery played just eight games and was placed on injured reserve after struggling with rib and wrist injuries. In his absence, rookie running backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams emerged as viable options, so much that by the end of the season, it looked like Montgomery could be phased out of the Packers plans on offense. Per offseason practice reports, Montgomery was frequently used in no-huddle and two-minute drills, and head coach Mike McCarthy told ESPN’s Rob Demovsky that he plans to handle running back by committee this season, until someone proves themselves to be the full-time guy. That could still be Montgomery.
If the additions to the secondary pan out, this Green Bay defense will be able to support Rodgers’s dominance.
The money won’t be great (the league minimum is $54,000), but if Owens wants to play, this is one of his only options.
Owens previously played some non-NFL football, for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. But his deal entailed only playing home games, and it didn’t end well.
If Owens joins the Eskimos, he could make his debut on Thursday, August 2, at home again against the Saskatchewan RoughRiders, in a game that would start during the NFL’s annual Hall of Fame game.
Young embraced the Stephen Curry comparisons that his exploits inspired, but for Atlanta fans there will be two more pressing comparisons to make: those of Young to Doncic and Schröder. A top-three pick is a chance to chart your franchise on a new course, carrying with it the potential opportunity cost associated with whoever you pass on. By watching the Hawks select Doncic—a 6′ 7 playmaking 19-year-old coming off a EuroLeague MVP and championship season with Real Madrid—and then deal him to the Mavericks, Atlanta fans will naturally be looking for Young to not only succeed but surpass Doncic. And if Young turns out to be only a modest improvement over Schröder (whom the Hawks are reportedly shopping in trades) or not one at all, the move will look like a misuse of resources.
