Rumor emerges of Russell Wilson eventually joining the Giants

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

Assuming that this is enough to get Wilson to change teams, that he'd want to play for the Giants, and that the Giants would want him, it's something that he could force, sooner or later. PFT explained last year when reporting that Wilson wasn't inclined in the aftermath of a flurry of quarterback deals to sign an extension but instead to play things out on a year-to-year basis, Kirk Cousins-style. If Wilson is willing to bear the year-to-year injury risk and able to say no to any and all long-term offers the Seahawks make, he eventually will force the Seahawks into some very tough decisions.

Giants reportedly out on Kyler Murray, who will challenge NFL to change its ways of thinking

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

When Kyler Murray is drafted in April — and there's a good chance that will happen early in the first round, after he proclaimed his commitment to football Monday — he'll be unlike any other NFL draft pick before him. Murray is short, at least for an NFL quarterback. University of Oklahoma assistant AD/strategic communications Mike Houck had the most definitive word on Murray's height, when he said the OU strength staff measured Murray at 5-foot-9 and 7/8 inches.

Todd Gurley’s Super Bowl disappearance another knock on paying running backs

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

Todd Gurley's lack of use in the NFC championship game and Super Bowl LIII was strange because it rarely happens at any other position. The New York Giants wouldn't ignore Odell Beckham Jr. because of “rhythm.” There's no gameplan that would leave Tom Brady on the bench for half of the New England Patriots plays. Gurley, a two-time All-Pro, didn't get his second carry of Super Bowl LIII until less than six minutes remained in the first half.

Mayfield, who finished second to New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley in voting for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, was named Cleveland's top professional athlete at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards on Wednesday night.
