Monday, and no Cleveland Browns made the list. What does this mean? It means none of the Browns’ 14 draft picks had rookie seasons of distinction at their position. It doesn’t mean the draft is a failure, but it does mean Cleveland’s 2016 draft class did not get off to a fast start.
New Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is adding another familiar face to his coaching staff after making yet another change. The Browns fired defensive line coach Robert Nunn and will replace him with former Los Angeles Rams assistant defensive line coach Clyde Simmons, a person familiar with the moves said Tuesday.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin had strong words for Antonio Brown, calling him “foolish,” “selfish” and “inconsiderate” and threatened swift punishment for his star receiver after a post-game video from the locker room in Kansas City was broadcast on Facebook.
When Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett speak to the media, it is mostly their way of communicating with Cowboys fans. Occasionally, it’s to send a message to a particular player. But in the last 48 hours, it has been something else. Reading between the lines, which is the only way to ever understand the Cowboys’ owner, Jones is telling his coach that Romo just might continue his career here in 2017. Garrett, all but saying farewell to his friend and longtime quarterback, is telling the owner it’s time to move on.
When it’s all said and done, there is a very good chance Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers go down as top-five all-time quarterbacks. Brady is already there, easily, and if Rodgers can close out his career with another Super Bowl win (or two) he’ll be in the discussion. The Patriots star admitted Rodgers does things no one else, himself included, is capable of doing.
