David Cobb will not perform tomorrow at Minnesota’s Pro Day

david cobbDavid Cobb is one of the best running backs in college football, but tomorrow when his teammates have their pro day, Cobb will miss the event.

Minnesota will hold its on-campus pro day on Monday, but senior running back David Cobb won’t be participating. Cobb’s father told the Pioneer Press Sunday that his son is still recovering from a quad strain he suffered Feb. 21 at the NFL Combine.

Cobb will hold a personal workout in “early April.” Cobb ran a 4.81 40-yard dash in his first try at the NFL Combine, but pulled up towards the end of the run and sat out the rest of the drills due to injury. The strain is “a lot better” according to his father, but not quite ready.

Cobb is considered one of the best backs in the draft, and many have him rated in the 2nd to 4th round.

Browns new quarterback understands why people think he is a bad option

mccownJosh McCown has bounced around from team to team since entering the league and has never started a full season as a quarterback. When you take that all in, you also have a guy that is 35 years old, and who was just paid 5 million a season for the Browns.  Well while many call Josh McCown a horrible signing, he is ready to prove people wrong.  McCown says he understands why people do not like the signing, but he is confident he can get the job done.

I get it,” McCown told Northeast Ohio Media Group. “I understand people’s perceptions of me. I don’t back off it or shy away from [the 1-10 record in 2014]. I understand people’s frustration. But my mindset is to come in here, grow and improve as a football player, and help this team win football games. When I’ve been able to operate in a system that’s organized and been around for awhile like I did in 2013 with the Bears, I’ve been able to play at a high level.”

Ray Farmer better hope this signing works, because if it doesn’t he could be out as the GM next season.

Broncos are expected to tag Demaryius Thomas by tomorrow’s deadline

demaryiusAccording to the Denver Post, Demaryius Thomas the Broncos star wide receiver is expected to be slapped with a franchise tag.

Specifically, the Broncos are expected to use the “nonexclusive” tag on Thomas. The team could have used the “exclusive” tag that would have prohibited the player from negotiated with other teams, according to the Denver Post.

The “nonexclusive” tags makes it possible for other teams to negotiate with Thomas, although the Broncos would have the right to match any offer. Moreover, should the Broncos decide against matching an offer, the team signing away Thomas would have to compensate Denver with two first-round draft picks.

The franchise tag will present Thomas with a guaranteed one-year salary of $12.797 million (based on the projected $143 million salary cap) for the 2015 season.

This probably doesn’t bode well for Hampton and the Ravens.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch wants to help Youth Football in Turkey

lynchAFWB (American Football Without Barriers) Camp is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to develop American football in underprivileged countries around the world. We host yearly camps to support football clubs and leagues in other countries, while encouraging sportsmanship and physical activity.

Founded by Gary Barnidge and Breno Giacomini in 2011, the goal of AFWB Camp is to take professional NFL skills and abilities and bring that to new parts of the world to underprivileged kids, through service and leadership, according to their site.  Well today, Marshawn Lynch also known as Beast Mode, made an appearance in Turkey. He spoke about bringing camps to Turkey to help young under privileged fans get a chance to work with one of the best running backs in the NFL. Lynch was excited to work with the kids in Turkey per this release:

“With the camp, I do this back at home myself, in Oakland, California, and when I got the word they were doing something here, it gave me a chance to spread my wings. I hold a camp at home, like I said, with about 850 kids and it’s been growing. This is an opportunity for me to come out and spread my brand as well. I’m here, like I said, to spread football across the world and at the same time help people in need,” Lynch said.

I guess Lynch is not as bad as people make him out to be after all?
