    This looks to be yet another situation where the White tight end with the non-stop motor will eventually usurp the black tight end with mouth-watering upside, in this case David Njoku, taken as the 29th pick of the first round in April by Cleveland.

    The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot said second-year TE Seth DeValve "jumped out" at Browns OTAs and minicamp. Mary Kay joins fellow beat writer Nate Ulrich and coach Hue Jackson as those who have heaped praise on DeValve in the past month, adding DeValve was one of "the most improved players" from 2016. DeValve was a little-known fourth-rounder out of Princeton but tore up his Pro Day and obviously had a big jump in competition coming into the NFL. Cabot thinks the Browns will use plenty of two-TE sets.

    This helps Nelson Spruce's chances of making the team:

    NFL suspended Rams WR Mike Thomas four games for violating the league's policy on PEDs. Not to be confused with New Orleans wideout and consensus second-round fantasy pick Michael Thomas. The 22-year-old Rams receiver reeled in just 3-of-9 targets for 37 yards over 102 offensive snaps in 2016. Thomas will be eligible to return against Seattle in Week 5. The suspension may hurt Thomas' chances of making the Rams' 53-man roster after Los Angeles drafted Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds in the third and fourth rounds.

    "Brian Cushing substandard in coverage"

    "remains useful if little more

    "Zach Cunningham will take his spot, more versatile, better instincts"

    Some predictable buffoonery as these idiots have way to much time on their hands and do nothing productive with it. Latimer will hopefully get cut this year.


    The attorney for D'Onta Foreman released a statement regarding Foreman's arrest on Sunday afternoon disputing charges of an unlawful firearm and stating Foreman did not possess marijuana.


    The attorney, Chip Lewis, claims Foreman broke no laws. "This legal handgun was recently purchased by D'Onta and registered in his name," Lewis' statement reads. "The handgun was properly secured inside his vehicle as required by Texas law. A passenger in D'Onta's vehicle was in possession of marijuana. D'Onta did not use or possess the marijuana." Lewis also said Foreman will take a urine test to prove that he wasn't smoking weed.

    Cody Latimer was seen being pepper-sprayed after slapping a bouncer at a strip club in Dayton, Ohio in a video obtained by TMZ.

    The incident occurred in February and Latimer has already acknowledged that it was indeed him in the video. Charges were not filed and the police are not investigating the incident. Latimer has had a slew of off-field incidents including an arrest for failing to appear in court following a traffic violation. He also called the cops on his girlfriend for assaulting him last year and later paid her bail. The 24-year-old has been a major bust, hauling in just 16 catches since arriving as a second-round pick in 2014.

    (((Adam Schefter))) is quite the master of the obvious as Weenieworld continues to tamp down yet another screw-up by Ezekiel Elliott, he of the charming room brightening smile. It's been one thing after another since this pampered bonehead was drafted last year and now he's being accused of knocking someone out in a club the other night.

    Appearing on Outside the Lines, ESPN's Adam Schefter stated that the assault allegations against Ezekiel Elliott come at "bad timing" during the league's continued investigation into his off-field behavior. Per Schefter, Elliott was scheduled to issue a response to the NFL's investigation into his 2016 domestic violence incident this week. "The league is getting ready to make a ruling on his previous behavior," Schefter stated, adding that there are "various forms of discipline" to which Elliott could be subject based on his "various forms" of off-field incidents. "The bottom line is this is not the timing that Ezekiel Elliott wanted," Schefter said.

    "Bad timing," lol. As if there was ever a good time for doing what he did.

    Not sure whether to post all of this laughable news about Dante Fowler here or in the recent busts thread:

    According to Mike Kaye of First Coast News, Jaguars DE Dante Fowler has at least 10 traffic tickets dating back to December 2015.

    Since it was revealed he was arrested on Tuesday night for hitting a man, knocking off his glasses, stomping on the glasses, and taking the man's groceries and throwing them into a lake at an apartment complex all because the man criticized Fowler's driving, Kaye decided to dig into local court records. They revealed Fowler was once cited for driving 98 MPH in a 55 zone and another citation was for careless driving, causing $1,500 in property damage. Fowler could be subject to a suspension following his recent battery and criminal mischief charges.



    Jaguars DE Dante Fowler was arrested on misdemeanor charges of simple battery and mischief in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Tuesday night.

    Fowler allegedly got out of his car, hit a man, knocking off his glasses, and then stepped on them. The arrest comes exactly one month after DC Todd Wash said Fowler has "matured a lot" heading into his third year. Fowler was released early this morning on $650 bond. The former No. 3 overall pick missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL and recorded just four sacks last season while taking eight penalties.

    As usual, Weenieworld downplays and excuses black criminality. Serial criminal Adam Jones merely had off the field "drama" earlier in his career don't you know:

    NFL suspended Bengals CB Adam Jones one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Jones pleaded guilty to a second-degree misdemeanor in May stemming from an early January incident at Cincinnati hotel. With that settled, the soon-to-be 34-year-old will miss the season opener against the Ravens. Involved in plenty of off-field drama early in his career, Jones has settled down in his years with the Bengals and remains an above-average cover man, even at his advanced age.

    Just from a quick look at his Wikipedia, he's been charged/arrested for:

    Assault
    Assault
    Vandalism
    Pot possession
    Obstruction of justice
    Public intoxication
    Disorderly conduct
    Assault (on a woman)
    Assault (on a woman)
    Threat to life
    Assault (on a woman)
    Basically told a guy to go shoot up a strip club, forced to play over $12 million in compensation
    Speeding
    Got in a fight with his own bodyguard
    Alcoholic
    Obstructing official business
    Disorderly conduct
    Assault

    100 times worse than Manziel's but one is a starter in the NFL and the other has been blackballed from the league. Countless white players have had the one crime (or even just accusation) and been kicked out of college or removed from the NFL, it's depressing.

    Ravens sign Griff Whalen. He joins Danny Woodhead and Eric Weddle as White Ravens at Caste-verboten positions.

    A good start would be to stop giving black athletes a pass. They should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    I read in a article that the Miami Dolphins view Drew Morgan as one of the most intriguing players of the summer! Idk if Mitch Matthews will make the roster, but Drew Morgan looks like a sure thing.

    Talk about money poorly spent and a laughable WR depth chart on top of it:

    Vikings WR Jarius Wright is on the roster bubble.

    Wright is entering his third season of a four-year, $15.5 million extension signed in 2015. He was active for just eight games last year, playing under 12 percent of snaps. Wright isn't needed after the Vikings added Michael Floyd and late-rounders Rodney Adams and Stacy Coley. Releasing Wright would save $2.6M.


    Hopefully the German kid Boehringer has developed enough to make an impact in training camp this year. He has more potential than any of those guys listed in the weenieworld blurb above.

    Another bum. From weenieworld.

    Denard Robinson - RB - Free Agent
    Free agent RB Denard Robinson worked out for the Cowboys on Friday.

    Dallas appears set atop their running back depth chart with Ezekiel Elliott, Darren McFadden, and Alfred Morris, but an Elliott suspension could be coming down the chute. Robinson is a "name" player who has shown little game at the pro level. The Cowboys could simply be doing due diligence here. Robinson turns 27 in September.

    Saw this kid at Dolphins camp recently when I attended. Dude was all over the field making plays. I'm hoping you're right about him making the roster. Even the DWF's are in love with him although most of them don't think he has more potential than "upsider" Leonte Carroo who has shown absolutely nothing since being drafted.

    The pea brained Lucky Whitehead (what a name!) had been Ryan Switzer's only competition to return kicks, good news for Ryan, hopefully he gets used a lot as a receiver too.

    Cowboys waived WR Lucky Whitehead. Charged with petty larceny in Virginia last month, Whitehead then missed a court date. His agent denies Whitehead was even in Virginia when the incident allegedly took place, but the Cowboys are taking a stand. (For once.) Though we're not sure this one is truly deserved considering all the shenanigans the Dallas organization has allowed over the years. Whitehead is a bottom-roster player.

    This is good news for Terrence West and for Danny Woodhead, who should have a guaranteed important role all season now.

    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon's meniscus injury required a full repair, and he will be out for the season. Dixon was expected to need only a "trim," but a full repair was required upon closer inspection. It's a brutal blow for the 2016 fourth-rounder, who had a golden path to playing time once he returned from his four-game suspension in Week 5. It leaves the Ravens in a lurch, with only pass-catcher Danny Woodhead and fourth-year plodder Terrance West available as legitimate options. We suppose Buck Allen could also get another look. The Ravens could be forced to dip into the wafer-thin free agent market, which is currently "led" by Rashad Jennings and DeAngelo Williams. Still only 23, Dixon is worth stashing in Dynasty leagues, but he's now little more than a 50-50 proposition. Woodhead, who could seize goal-line work, is the preferred Ravens own, even in standard leagues.

    Ahh, yes, Danny, the "pass-catcher". They really can't hide their disdain for White RBs, can they?

    Can't believe training camps are already starting - used to be a lot more excited about this time of year.

    Black Seattle DE Michael Bennet will be releasing a book entitled "How to make white people uncomfortable" - utterly ridiculous nonsense but he is propped up by the leftist sports media and given a platform to say whatever he wants since he is part of the protected race is our society. The roles could never be reversed, the truth about blacks in American society can never be openly discussed but for this idiot who imagines himself some sort SJW he can be as racist as he wants.
