It’s interesting to see how the WR market has reset resulting in some very big pay days, especially when it seems that getting “ready-to-go” WRs through the draft is becoming increasingly possible.
I think given the lack of correlation between athleticism and WR production that even in a new partially analytics-driven world they are deceptively hard to scout, so the proven WRs still look worth it.

It genuinely is batshit crazy that the Browns traded for him & paid him under the circumstances. How can any nfl team be so stupid is beyond me. I am not even looking at the moral angle of this but just in terms of building the team around this guy made no sense at all

Justin Jefferson must be overjoyed this offseason, dude's gonna become the highest paid WR ever by a considerable margin next year.

Fecking fentanyl, man. I’m glad I don’t screw around with stuff like that anymore. I think Austin Box’s death (OU, couple years or so after Heath Ledger) helped scare me straight.

Huh, seeing that tattoo is a bit uncanny. I was thinking of getting my brother’s cattle brand, 44, tattooed on my left should after he died couple months back and that is half of 88.

I could double it up with a smaller one and make people guess about “88”. Kinda weird getting one for a football player though, will have to think of some further significance...

Unfortunately it is not in the NFLs interest presumably for such a test to exist. So at best they aren’t pushing it, at worst they’re hindering efforts to create one.
I just wonder about other sports like goalkeepers in football & wrestlers of all types.

I don’t think there is any other sport (except fighting sports) which has such frequent but individually insignificant head impacts. The issue in the NFL is that it’s an accumulation of these smaller shocks and, yes there is some read across to heading in football, but it’s still so much less than, say, someone on the O line. I think it has wider implications than just NFL, but materially it only impacts the NFL.

Mayfield dealt to the Panthers for a conditional 2024 5th rounder.

Wk1: Browns @ Panthers :lol:

If my math is correct, Carolina owes $27.75M guaranteed to Darnold and Baker next year. Throw in what they recently paid Teddy while he was playing in Denver and it is all quite hilarious.

That's excellent. There's literally no way that can go that isn't funny.

Apparently it’s “deep and meaningful” :lol:

He’s such a clown.

Just had a look on the internet and apparently it's some kind of ancient, alternative morse code for "I am immunized".

Has he been bulking up? Seems to be bigger than before.
