When Tom Brady pleaded the fifth after buddy Jim Gray asked him if he felt properly appreciated by the Patriots, it served as a reminder of just how much things have changed between now and when ESPN’s Seth Wickersham dropped his bombshell report on dysfunction behind the scenes in New England back in early January. Back then, it would have seemed impossible that Brady would air any dirty laundry about his relationship with Bill Belichick. The same goes for tight end Rob Gronkowski, who, in between ridiculous personal appearances, has used the media this offseason to float retirement rumors and express frustrations with the Pats.
New general manager Brian Gutekunst said last week that he expects a new Rodgers pact soon, which is a good idea — especially after Rodgers expressed irritation about not being consulted ahead of some notable offseason moves. The Packers ‘ business plan should be clear: Keep 12 happy at all costs. Literally.

Surprise implies it won’t be someone like Jarrad Davis, who is expected to be a quality starter, or Kenny Golladay, who already had a bit of a breakout his rookie year. With those players off the table, I’m really intrigued by Jalen Reeves-Maybin.聽
The second-year linebacker has an advanced feel for the game, regularly showing natural instincts, both in college and during his limited playing time as a rookie. We all know he’s under-sized, but with a full offseason to focus on bulking up, I’m curious to see what kind of weight he’s carrying coming into the offseason program.聽
Other player worth monitoring is cornerback DeShawn Shead. The combination of his size and tackling ability could lead to a bigger than expected role this season.聽

Here’s the thing about Eli Apple Womens Jersey evaluating the Lions 鈥?I’m there every day, watching it first-hand and reviewing the tape. I don’t do that with other NFL teams, so for me to fully evaluate the draft classes of the league’s other 31 franchises, it would be disingenuous.
