Tyreek Hill: ‘This is the last year for Tua to show what he can do’
Big recruitment of the offseason in Miami, Tyreek Hill (WR, Dolphins) does not stop defending the reputation of his new quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, often questioned and even by his own frankness. For Hill, the critics are wrong, and if Miami broadcast images of failed passes towards him, it is to put pressure on Tua.
“Reporters, analysts, Twitter trolls,… All these people are going to have to swallow their words about Tua. […] I really believe they showed that video of Tua under dosing his pass to me just to get people talking. Because they really know what Tua is capable of, for real. »
However, the receiver knows the business of the NFL, and is aware that this pressure put on his pitcher is not only psychological or to make the media talk.
« You know, in the NFL, you only have two or three years to show that you’re a quarterback that can be successful, especially if you’re drafted in the first round. And if you don’t succeed after those few years, you get kicked out. So they’ll treat Tua like that. In fact it’s basically his last year to show what he can do. »
Jimmy Garoppolo is fine, and he’s not leaving for Tampa Bay…
In the wake of Tom Brady? Not really. Don Yee, agent of Jimmy Garoppolo (QB, 49ers) updated NFL Network on his client. Following his shoulder operation, the San Francisco quarterback is fine and should resume throwing quickly. But above all he does not pack his bags for Florida. Rumors sent him to Tampa Bay this weekend, which has been strongly denied. Although Jimmy G will certainly bid farewell to California by the start of the season, it won’t be to join the Buccaneers.
« He’s progressing well, and his recovery is on schedule, » Yee said. “We are optimistic for the coming season. During the weekend, information came out that I had announced to a member of the media some things concerning this future. But the information is wrong. »
…but Seattle takes its pulse
According to ESPN, the Seahawks have had internal discussions about a possible Jimmy Garoppolo trade. According to the outlet, Seattle has gone through the videos of the veteran and started discussions about his insertion into the team’s offensive scheme.
However, trades between division rivals are always complicated, especially when it comes to a quarterback. In addition, Seattle knows full well that San Francisco has a knife in its throat, and that the franchise may be forced to simply cut Jimmy G to save his $25 million salary by the start of the season.

Leslie Frazier was hoping for another head coaching job
Landed as head coach of the Vikings in 2013, Leslie Frazier (DC, Bills) spent two seasons with the Buccaneers before taking the defensive coordinator job at Buffalo. And despite his success, the technician does not hide his disappointment at not having had another chance to direct the destiny of a franchise. This year he had interviews with the Dolphins and the Giants, but without success. For him, he has two faults: he comes from a minority, and he is a defensive coach.
“I would be lying if I told you that I considered it would take so long to get another opportunity. Especially after the success and especially the recent successes we’ve had in Buffalo,” Frazier explained during the AP Pro Football Podcast. “It’s very disheartening in a way, but you can only control what you can control. »
“In two of those situations, they told me they preferred an offensive coach, and they announced their young quarterback as the justification. I told both teams that I felt capable of doing a good job hiring a good offensive coordinator, even though my background is defensively oriented. There have been a lot of defensive head coaches who have won Super Bowls in our league, because in the end what it takes is good leadership… It’s unfortunate. I think it’s very limiting to see the head coach as an offensive guy because you have a young quarterback to develop. You need the right leader, someone who can take on multiple responsibilities, not just call offensive plays. I think it’s a biased approach, but it’s not me who decides on recruitment. »
Condoleezza Rice joins Broncos as minority shareholder
Denver has a new heavyweight recruit. Rob Walton, whose family recently bought the Broncos, announced that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will join the group of owners of the franchise as a minority shareholder. A big football fan and having had several connections with the NFL since the 1970s, Secretary Rice therefore became a real player in the league by joining the Colorado franchise.
« We are delighted to welcome former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to our ownership group, » Walton said in his official announcement. “Highly respected for her public service, her high level education and her institutional leadership, Secretary Rice is well known as an avid fan and football expert. She worked to make the sport stronger and better. She is a coach’s daughter and served on the first College Football Playoff Committee. She moved to Denver with her family when she was 12, and continued her college education at the University of Denver. His unique experience and extraordinary judgment will be a great asset to our group and to the Broncos organization. »
AJ Brown defends Jalen Hurts
In the “Sports Take” podcast, journalists Derrick Gunn, Rob Ellis and Barrett Brooks raised doubts about the progress of Jalen Hurts (QB, Eagles). Great efforts would still have to be made. According to them, during the Organized Team Activities last May, Hurts would have thrown 3 interceptions, 4 incomplete passes and suffered 3 sacks on a series of ten actions.
Freshly arrived in Philadelphia, AJ Brown (WR) has already had enough of the criticism. On Monday he tweeted to defend his quarterback, noting that to his knowledge it is impossible to be sacked 3 times during 7-on-7 lineups when there is no pass rush…
That practice stuff about Jalen is fake . Y’all tweet and believe anything. Like how can he get sacked on 7on7 and there aren’t any rushers. I believe water is above us. Believe that too and make an article about that too. This app is crazy 😂

After football, it will be poker for Calais Campbell
Calais Campbell (DE, Ravens) is chasing his dream of winning an NFL title, but he already knows that his pursuit of the championship will go beyond his league career. According to ESPN, when he hangs up his boots, Campbell will aim for the title of the World Series of Poker. He has been playing on the tour regularly since his college days, but never made the final due to training camp dates being too close together.
“I want to win the WSOP Finals,” Campbell announced. “It’s very difficult and very few people have succeeded, but why not? If it’s doable, why not me? »
“We are talking about trained athletes who have dedicated their lives to high level competition under pressure. Thinking strategically and making quick decisions are the only things needed to win a poker tournament. So they absolutely have the qualities,” said Jack Effel, vice president of the World Series of Poker.
