One of the greatest tight ends in NFL history officially decided to call it quits on Thursday as Jason Witten finally announced his retirement. For the past week, Witten had been mulling over the possibility of returning for another season with the Cowboys or taking ESPN up on its offer to join the Monday Night Football booth, and in the end, the ESPN offer was too good to pass up for the the long-time tight end, who turns 36 on Sunday.
Right in Dallas’ own backyard is Sutton, a behemoth (6-3, 218 pounds) who can both outrun cornerbacks and go up and get the ball over them, a la Bryant. Ridley is the safest. Sutton has the highest upside. Moore combines both of those elements. Any of the three would make Prescott happy.
If Dallas’ first-round pick is not a wideout, then it must be defensive line or offensive line, in that order of selection preference should the Cowboys stay at No. 19.
There had not been a whole lot of rumors about the Browns potentially looking to erect a new venue. Based on the Cleveland economy and political makeup of the city, it’s highly likely that a vast majority of the funds for a new venue would have to be private.
Newly signed Giants defensive tackle A.J. Francis wasted no time taking a parting shot at his former team, the Washington Redskins, and expressing joy over landing with an NFC East rival.
When the team you were on didn’t appreciate you but the team you played against actually pays attention to the film… Francis captioned a photo on his Instagram account.
The Giants signed Francis on Wednesday, as general manager Dave Gettleman continues to rebuild and add depth to a roster that finished 3-13 last season. Francis, 27, recorded 18 tackles in six games with Washington last season.
