Thursday began with Packers G.M. Brian Gutekunst explaining on PFT Live that quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ new contract was being delayed in part due to other quarterback contracts that had yet to be negotiated. By the end of Thursday, the most prominent quarterback entering the last year of his contract got his new deal.
This means that Rodgers has his new floor; basically, whatever Ryan actually has gotten. The details still haven’t emerged, but if the deal is worth $30 million per year in new money, that’s what Rodgers will be targeting.
Youth Dave Henderson Jersey Hicks is fun to watch. When the bases are empty, he uses an old-school high leg kick and has a rapid delivery out of which his triple-digit heaters come spinning like Tasmanian devils. Yet the command issues the prospect gurus said needed to be ironed out in the minors remain. Hicks has just six strikeouts this season against 10 walks.
So why did the Cardinals allow this Nuke LaLoosh character to skip so many minor league levels? I asked Matheny about it earlier this season.
When a kid comes up throwing as hard as he does, do you have to kind of watch him to make sure he handles it right and doesn’t try to live up to the radar readings?
Youth Nick Perry Jersey The NFL has handed Ingram a four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. That’s the Authentic Michael Jordan Jersey standard suspension for a first-time PED offense.
Ingram will be allowed to participate in all of the Saints’ offseason work, training camp and the preseason, but he will not be able to practice or play in the first four games of the regular season. Ingram has not been participating in the Saints’ voluntary offseason workouts.
Last year Ingram led the Saints with 230 carries for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns. He added 58 catches for 416 yards.
With Ingram out, the Saints will rely even more on Alvin Kamara, last year’s offensive rookie of the year. Sixth-round rookie Boston Scott is also likely to see a bigger role in the offense.
There is no word on the specific substance Ingram tested positive for.
