    NFC playoff predictions: Eagles face familiar-but-stronger field of contenders

  • Night net null null null null null null Don't expect much change at the top of the NFC standings in 2018. The Eagles did not lose much after their victory in Super Bowl 52, and their fellow reigning division winners all made b夜网论坛ig moves in efforts to displace them.The NFC remains the Night net's stronger, more top-heavy conference, meaning any NFC team that makes the playoffs has a chance to get to Super Bowl 53.

    Where will Antonio Brown play in 2019? 49ers, Broncos among trade possibilities

  • Night net null null null null null null Antonio Brown announced it's "time to move on and forward" after saying thanks to SteelersNation while "Do What I Want" by Lil Uzi Vert played in the background.Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years...time to move on and forward..........✌🏽 #NewDemands pic.twitter.com/fbIoFNdqK4— Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 12, 2019According to several reports, the upset Steelers receiver officially requested a trade from the team on Feb. 12, which makes things complicated moving forward. Since he's still under contract, Pittsbugh is under no obligation to trade him, so Brown saying it's "time to move on" doesn't really mean much since he's not in control. But it does seem likely the Steelers move on from him at some point this offseason. Team owner Art Rooney II has said he will not release the receiver, but "all other options are on the table." It seems the best move for both parties is to move on, but to where?Only a handful of options make sense. Here we break down each potential team for Brown; why each could land one of the best receivers in the Night net. MORE: Breaking down Steelers' options with Brown(Salary cap numbers via Spotrac.)Where will Antonio Brown play in 2019?San Francisco 49ersBrown has publicly indicated San Francisco is a place where he wants to play, and he apparently told Jerry Rice something similar: "He wants to come here really badly," Rice said of Brown's desire to play for the 49ers.The Niners have $46.4 million in projected cap space for 2019, plenty to add Brown, and their current roster makeup suggests he would be a fit. San Francisco invested in quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo last year, and Brown could pair nicely with George Kittle, who just set the Night net record for receiving yards by a tight end in a single season.🤩 https://t.co/pA9fiuEX0f— Antonio Brown (@AB84) January 1, 2019Denver BroncosThe Broncos reportedly are one of the teams interested in trading for Brown. They will have a projected $37 million in salary cap space next season, again plenty to bring in Brown, but acquiring the receiver would limit Denver in other areas (such as getting a better quarterback).Denver has Emmanuel Sanders on the roster, but the veteran tore his Achilles late in the season, and his 2019 salary is not guaranteed. The Broncos could release Sanders and free up $10.15 million in cap space. So their[......]

    Night net Draft 2019: Sweat to skip event over heart concern

  • Night net null Montez Sweat won't be making the trip to Nashville this week after all.According to ESPN, the former Mississippi State defensive end will no longer be attending the Night net Draft like he originally planned. Instead, he has opted to spend time with his family in Georgia."My devoted grandparents and a host of other family members helped me to get to this point in my life and I wanted to celebrate this special day with my family, so we all chose to do so where it all started for me, Stone Mountain, Georgia," Sweat told ESPN through his agent, Brian Overstreet. Sweat impressed at the Night net combine last month, setting a 40-yard dash record for a defensive lineman by running a 4.41 at 6-5 and 260 pounds.However, it was revealed he had a pre-existing heart condition before he was cleared to participate in the event. The heart issue reportedly was not known until the combine and has since affected his draft stock, though doctors declared it to be low-risk."Because of privacy issues we are not allowed to comment specifically. But I will tell you that this is not news," his agent said in a statement at the time. "Montez is the same person that was me夜网论坛dically cleared to play and dominate the SEC, the Senior Bowl, and the Night net combine. No change in health and no change in domination!"Despite his health concerns, Sweat is project by many to be a first-round selection.The Night net Draft is scheduled to run April 25-27.[......]

    Colts free agency guide: Indy in business with few team needs, ton of cap space

  • Night net null The Colts enter 2019 free agency with the most salary-cap space in the Night net, roughly $102 million, according to OverTheCap.com. Yet in glancing at Indianapolis’ roster and how it projects for the coming season, one struggles to find glaring team needs.This is what happens when a general manager knows what he's doing. 2019 Night net FREE AGENTS:Ranking best players available by positionOf the 19 players the Colts have drafted since Chris Ballard was hired as GM in 2017, 14 are projected to either start or earn significant playing time in 2019. More importantly, the contract quarterback Andrew Luck signed in 2016 looks more like a bargain than a risk in the wake of his reemergence last season. Financially and roster construction-wise, Indianapolis is in as good of a place as an Night net team can be heading into the 2019 league year. That’s why the "team needs" we are listing for the Colts in free agency are more like "desired luxuries." After all, this team is coming off an appearance in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs with its coaching staff and core of star players still intact.Colts team needsDefensive lineWide receiverSafetyCornerbackDefensive lineColts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus was a candidate for some vacant Night net head coaching jobs this winter, so Indy is fortunate to have him back. The 4-3 scheme he installed upon his arrival last year worked wonders for the likes of tackle Margus Hunt, who was re-signed after a breakout year in his sixth Night net season.Even with the starters set, the Colts like to rotate defensive linemen more often than most teams, making depth a premium. End Jabaal Sheard also is set to become a free agent next year.In free agency, defensive end Trey Flowers is arguably the best overall player available and would be a worthy splurge to make this an area of stength for Indianapolis. Sheldon Richardson or Malik Jackson could be similar impact players at defensive tackle with a cheaper price tag.It's also worth noting that this draft is considered loaded with defensive-line talent. Opting to hold out for the selection process in April and addressing this position at that point might be a wise move for the Colts.MORE: Could Colts go after Le'Veon Bell?Wide receiverIt's the dirty little secret that is, well, not really a secret: Antonio Brown made sense for the Colts.The Steelers receiver, of course, had to b夜网论坛e acquired via trade, not free agency, and the Raiders made the move Saturday night. But the Colts could have used a top receiver to pair with T.Y. Hilton and make life a living hell for opposing defensive coordinators. Heading into free agency, Dion Cain, who is coming off an ACL injury, is the projected No. 2 receiver behind Hilton. Zach Pascal will be in the mix, too.In free agency, the Colts could go after Jamison Crowd[......]

    Peyton Manning passes on ESPN's 'Monday Night Football,' SN sources say

  • Night net null null null The mating dance has ended. Peyton Manning will not join ESPN's "Monday Night Football" booth this season, sources tell Sporting News.ESPN held out hope that Manning would fill the hole left by Jason Witten's return to the Cowboys. But barring a miracle, sources said, Manning will not be in the booth when "Monday Night Football" kicks off its historic 50th season, with a Texans-Saints/Broncos-Raiders doubleheader on Sept. 9. FROM MONOPOLY TO MONOTONYInside ESPN's 'Monday Night Football' mid-life crisisDuring their last round of talks, Manning passed on joining Joe Tessitore, Booger McFarland and Lisa Salters in the "Monday Night Football" booth. Instead, the two-time Super Bowl champion opted to host ESPN's new five-part, 30-episode series, "Peyton's Places," debuting on ESPN+ in July. The 43-year-old's decision to say no to "Monday Night Football" ends years of back and forth between Manning, who retired from the Night net in 2016, and ESPN management led, by president Jimmy Pitaro.Manning previously turned down the "Worldwide Leader" after Jon Gruden left "Monday Night Football" to return to the Raiders in 2018. Then, when Witten suddenly left "Monday Night Football" after only one season in the booth, ESPN took another swing at Manning knowing he'd probably have little interest.Pitaro and content czar Connor Schell flew to Denver to personally meet with Manning on March 11, according to Marisa Guthrie of The Hollywood Reporter. Sensing Manning's ambivalence, ESPN never made a formal contract offer for "Monday Night Football," sources said.Instead, ESPN was happy to sign Manning for his second ESPN+ show after he previously broke down Night net game film for Kobe Bryant's "Detail." MORE: Can Nate Burleson become TV's next crossover star?"He won't be doing 'Monday Night,' but ESPN will still be in the Peyton Manning business in a "very big way," said one source.ESPN declined to comment. Manning's reps also declined comment.The end of the Manning chase could ultimately turn out to be beneficial for ESPN. The five-time MVP was always more of a pipe dream than a real possibility. After earning $248 million during his 18-year career with the Colts and Broncos, according to Spotrac, Manning doesn't need the money. He's more likely to end up in an owner's suite than a broadcast booth.So what's holding Manning back? He envisions himself as more of an Night net owner or front-office leader a la John Elway of the Broncos, sources said. Agreeing to "Monday Night Football" would also lock him into a more grueling travel schedule than shooting "Peyton's Places" on his own time.MANNING NIGHT FOOTBALL:[......]

    Wonderlic test scores of 2019 Night net Draft quarterbacks leaked

  • Night net null Every year at the Night net Combine, top prospects take the Wonderlic test. The results of those scores are supposed to remain confidential, but every year they get leaked by someone in the know. This year is no different as several scores have been made public via veteran reporter Bob McGinn.McGinn used to work for the Wisconsin Journal-Sentinel, but he currently runs a for-pay website where he provides insight. A user on the message board Orange Mane has listed those scores from McGinn for several players, including most of the notable quarterbacks. MORE: Notable Wonderlic test scores from past Night net playersBefore we dive into the actual scores, here's how Wikipedia describes the Wonderlic: The Wonderlic Personnel Test is a popular group intelligence test used to assess the aptitude of prospective employees for learning and problem-solving in a range of occupations. The Wonderlic is available in 12 different languages and is often used in college, entry level jobs, and team-making efforts.

In short, it depends on who you ask, but most people respond with "not really." In a column for Sports Illustrated, Edward Krupat, PhD, wrote the Wonderlic is "an outdated way of thinking about intelligence when it comes to predicting performance on the football field."Night net MOCK DRAFT: Predicting the full 2019 first roundA well-researched article on Medium looked at quarterbacks only and determined there was a minor benefit at this position: "There seems to be a sort of smartness threshold, where the best Night net quarterbacks need to be at least this smart to see success. But once a QB passes that threshold (around a score of 25), their additional smartness has little to no effect on success on the field."All of the quarterbacks in this draft are mostly above or around that 25 mark.Former Night net scout John Middlekauff said last year regarding the Wonderlic, "everything matters when it comes to quarterbacks."[......]
