Padres, Wil Myers agree to 6-year extension worth reported $83M

All-Star first baseman Wil Myers and the Padres have agreed on a six-year extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The deal is worth a franchise-record $83 million, FanRag Sports reported, citing unidentified sources.

We’re excited to secure a player with talent like Wil’s for the next six years, Padres general manager A.J. Preller said in a statement. Wil has shown that he wants to be in San Diego and wants to be a Padre, and he is going to be an integral part of our team and the community as we continue to build a championship club.

The Browns are also willing to eat as much as half of Osweiler’s $16 million contract in a trade scenario. Kay Cabot noted.

While that seems like a smart move by the Browns, it’s unlikely.

Several NFL personnel executives say they doubt anyone will give the Browns a third-round pick for Osweiler and pay him $8 million a year, Kay Cabot wrote. If that could’ve been done, the Texans would’ve done it, they say.

The more likely scenario for the Browns is that they cut Osweiler and someone signs him for about $4 million a year. With offset language in his contract, that would reduce the price of the move up to somewhere between 33 and 64 to about $12 million.

A month after retiring from football, 49ers pick Joe Williams broke Utah’s rushing record

Running back Joe Williams holds Utah’s all-time record for rushing yards in a game, with a huge 2016 day against UCLA that powered a 52-45 win. He went on to be picked by the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL draft.

He finished that day with 332 yards on the ground … weeks after stepping away from the game.

Part of the story, from USA Today:

Joe Williams heard his father’s screams from the next room as his sister lay in death’s grip. But Williams felt paralyzed, strapped down to his bed by shock and emotions.

WVU’s first-rounders in that time: Bruce Irvin in 2012, Tavon Austin in 2013, Kevin White in 2015, and Karl Joseph last year. Austin’s struggled mightily since the Rams picked him eighth overall four years ago, but he is still technically a first-rounder.

Is 2012 an arbitrary endpoint? Of course. It cuts off 2010 and 2011, when the only schools on that graphic with first-rounders were Penn State and Pitt (via Jared Odrick and Jonathan Baldwin, specifically). But I’ve seen worse. This isn’t that misleading.

Where it’s a little silly is that most of these teams have had head coaching changes sometime since 2012. Pitt, Virginia Tech, Penn State, and Maryland all have different coaches now than they did that year. More than that, Holgorsen had only been in the WVU job for a little more than a year. Irvin and Austin Cheap Jerseys Wholesale weren’t even his recruits.

Coaches develop players as much as programs do. You could argue fairly that Tech coach Justin Fuente produced an extra first-rounder from his time at Memphis (Paxton Lynch), that Maryland coach D.J. Durkin produced plenty as a top assistant at Florida and Michigan, and so on and so on.
