Lets go back to 2010. At the time, if you were a high draft pick, you could cash in BIG. Top picks were getting contracts that were the market value for the best of their respective positions, and it was creating a problem. QB Sam Bradford, the number 1 pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, signed a 6-year, $78 million deal after being drafted. This deal made him the third highest paid QB in the NFL for the 2010 season (in terms of guaranteed money), all before he ever played a game.
News broke this morning when it was announced that Ohio State Head Coach Urban Meyer is retiring.
Happy Friday everyone, and we hope you did not miss us too much. Between our last visit and now, Baker Mayfield put the Browns “IN THE HUNT,” the Dallas Cowboys won three (3) games, the Los Angeles Clippers became the top seed in the West, and my Boston Celtics continue to look… bad. With the final handful of weeks in the NFL regular season upon us, and the NBA season 25% complete (more on that here), December looks to be an intriguing month.
Here’s who we’ll be keeping an eye out for over the course of this next week.
Around 5 PM on Wednesday, after having helped set up, I rolled out dressed all fancy for an event at the TD Garden hosted by the Sports Museum of New England (where I work) called “The Tradition.” Continue reading “Bring Back Kendrick Perkins”
If you noticed it under a flurry of penalty flags, the New England Patriots beat the New York Jets yesterday, moving to 8-3 on the season.
Sometimes there’s small moments that occur in a game that end up making or breaking an entire season, a moment where a team either finds its way, or completely loses it. It may end up being inconsequential, but to me, the Patriots found themselves yesterday.
This isn’t a “fire Bill Belichick” article, but rather “when this dynasty is over, who would you like to see replace Bill and start a new chapter of Patriots football?” Continue reading “The Next Patriots Head Coach”
What a week, huh? Jimmy Butler is traded. Melo is sent to Siberia. Draymond calls KD a bitch and to GTFO. We love the NBA around here.
There was intrigue with the NFL too. Brady looks… human. The game of the year needs to move from Mexico City to Los Angeles (have you guys SEEN that field!? Horrible). Le’Veon Bell will not come back this season, at which point his teammates decided to take his stuff (finders keepers, right?)
As fascinating as the off the field/court news is, we’ll keep on how the players are playing. Lets see what Fredy, Andy, Kerm, and Nick are thinking…
OH! And an EARLY Happy Thanksgiving from us here at the Hold My Drink Sports team!
