Richie Incognito spent three days in a mental health facility last month after an incident at a Florida gym that involved him throwing weights at another man and telling police that he was being tracked by government agencies.
That’s a result of hours of work, and the Patriots put in that work at this time of year too. Where a lot of staffs get to work in the wee hours and leave around 5 p.m. during OTAs, the New England staff often works late into the night. For 18 years, we’ve heard that that stuff matters. It can’t suddenly be irrelevant now, that New England’s two most important players missed seven weeks of the offseason program. So maybe that subtly costs them somewhere down the line. Four, the stuff about how much funNew England’s program sure is interesting, but also a little much. Consider the sources. Eagles linemen Brandon Brooks and Lane Johnson never played in Foxboro.
He had a surgery, kind of an after surgery to correct a little something, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, via Curtis Crabtree of 950 KJR and PFT. Everything went really well, and we’re hoping by camp time he’ll be ready to rip and all that. A little knee thing. He’s had some complications just over time and so it was worth it to go ahead and clean this thing up. It was a really small issue, but it was one that was going to sit him down for 6-8 weeks so we went ahead and did it.
Jordan, 28, has played only five games the past three seasons. Those came last season with the Seahawks when he made 18 tackles and four sacks.
The third overall pick in 2013 played only 26 games with the Dolphins and made three sacks.
He has undergone at least two previous surgeries, and the Dolphins waived him with a failed physical designation last year. He started last season with Seattle on PUP.
You think about how football coaches drill even the most unlikely situations, and you wonder about all that time they spend on it … and then you see what JR Smith did with the ball the other night and you remember why. I’m not saying, to be clear, that an NFL player wouldn’t forget the score during a game. It absolutely could happen. I am saying there are a number of teams that I believe it almost certainly wouldn’t happen to.
