Jamal Adams has made it no secret he wants to be dealt from the New York Jets and would prefer a move to the Dallas Cowboys. What would the Cowboys need to give up to acquire the star safety?
The Jets are looking for an offensive lineman in return. Right tackle La’el Collins is who New York has its eye on.
Dallas already lost its center, so I don’t see it likely they would be willing to part with the right tackle, even for a player of Adams caliber. New York drafted Mekhi Becton in the first round, so the addition of Collins would significantly improve their line play over last year.
Hall of Fame Game Postponed
This year’s Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction has both been postponed to 2021. The class of 20 players, executives and coaches will have to wait until next year for their induction into Canton’s Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys was also canceled. Almost all of the inductees came out in favor of waiting until next year when they could get an in-person enshrinement experience.
Elliott Sued by Pool Cleaner
If getting the coronavirus wasn’t enough to ruin Ezekiel Elliott‘s summer, getting sued by his pool cleaner might be. The lawsuit alleges that Elliott’s dogs attacked a woman who had to be taken to the emergency room.
Elliott’s lawyer, Frank Salzano, says that Elliott is innocent, and there was no negligence on his part. He points to the fact that an investigation occurred that day, and Frisco (Texas) Police ruled that nothing needed to be done with the dogs.
Buccaneers Work Out Despite NFL Advisory
Tom Brady, the new Tampa Bay quarterback, has continued working out with his teammates despite the NFLPA advising against it. Brady and at least nine teammates met up at a local high school to get work in.
Florida coronavirus numbers have skyrocketed over the last week, calling into question Brady and his teammates’ judgment. After being confronted on the matter, Brady released a statement Thursday saying, “Only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
The Franklin Delano Roosevelt quote drew some fire on Brady for ignoring the very serious pandemic. If NFL players want to have a season, they might have to start using better judgment.
NFL Owners Okay Plan to Cover Seats
The NFL owners have voted and approved a plan to cover the seats closest to the field and allow teams to sell advertising on them. This should help with safety and allow teams a chance to at least offset some of the lost revenue if fans are not allowed in the stands.
The large tarps could feature league-wide sponsors or city-specific advertisements depending on what the team and league can leverage. The league has a current rule that no team can advertise on the first 40 feet above field level. The vote temporarily removes the rule for the 2020 season.
