Chicago Bears wide receiver Kevin White hasn’t seen the field yet after missing all of his rookie season, but he’s been with the team for more than a year now and doesn’t understand why everyone has something negative to say about Jay Cutler.
When White was drafted, he was warned that Cutler wasn’t a player that he’d get along with, but the 24-year-old receiver says it couldn’t be further from the truth.
But those 14 starts last season are the only starts of his career, which began in 2011 when the Ravens took him with a sixth-round pick. It’s not Kevin Hogan Jersey a lot to go on for contract talks at the game’s most premium, costly position. Don’t look for Andrew Luck money.
However, Taylor should probably send Brock Osweiler a thank you card once he does get his contract. Osweiler had a grand total of seven starts since being drafted in 2012, all last season filling in for an injured Peyton Manning. He got a four-year, $72 million deal from the Texans with $37 million guaranteed. That’s got to be the floor for Taylor’s deal with the Bills.
FAT TONY: Tony Romo is the new Fat Eddie Lacy. It sure Malcolm Johnson Jersey looked like Romo was jogging off a dad bod in a photo that surfaced on the internet this weekend. The guy who took the “fat Romo” photo said that he is not fat. It’s just the way the camera made him look.
SADDEST HOLDOUT EVER: DeAndre Hopkins ended his 24-hour holdout. That was quick. Houston’s receiver wanted more money. He’s making a million dollars this year, the second-to-last year of his rookie deal. But the Texans said they wouldn’t negotiate making it the most anticlimactic holdout ever.
Houston’s offense would be screwed without Hopkins, so I don’t wonder if he couldn’t have had a little more leverage as time went on. However, that also would’ve cost him more in fines, making it a potentially expensive gamble.
BROWN WANTS MORE MONEY: Antonio Brown says he deserves new deal from Pittsburgh Steelers. And he’s probably right since the game’s best receivers all make $14 million per year or more. Brown is making $6.25M this year, and his current deal goes through 2017. Hopefully, he wasn’t banking on Hopkins’ holdout to shake up the market though.
