Despite comments from Raiders G.M. Reggie McKenzie and coach Jon Gruden that indicated receiver Michael Crabtree and running back Marshawn Lynch were in the plans for 2018, both could be gone before the regular season.
That’s the word from Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, who reports that both players are in flux and could be out of Oakland this year.
Solder has 95 career NFL starts and instantly become the best player on the Giants offensive line which Flowers never achieved, despite his lofty draft status.
Veteran running back Jonathan Stewart, waived recently by the Panthers, signed a two-year deal with the Giants and before he did, he had no knowledge the Giants were on the verge of opening the coffers for a new left tackle.
That’s exciting, Stewart said. It is definitely trending up and I think having Dave there is the reason why they’ve been good in the past and he knows how to put teams together and it seems like he’s doing a good job so far.
He is waiting for an MRI to confirm, but Price is believed to have torn a pectoral muscle, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports.
Price, one of 11 Ohio State players participating in the combine this week, was projected as a first-round choice by some draft analysts. The injury, though, obviously could affect his draft stock.
At 24, I knew I was not ready to be taken care of. I wanted to struggle on my own. I wanted to have to eat cheap, tasteless, frozen dinners. And more importantly, I wanted to pursue a career that I could be proud of.
It’s almost impossible to make that work when you live in a few different cities throughout the year, following your partner around from one game to the next. Compromise is hard, and there’s always one person who has to give up a little more than the other.
I just wasn’t willing to compromise anymore. I wanted to put my aspirations and goals first and, unfortunately, that meant leaving Minnesota forever.
It wasn’t easy moving on, but I left because I had always been driven to make my own mark in this world, to learn from and grow in the struggles that I believed were necessary if I was to be the true me.
