It’s Friday. As the working week comes to a close, we drop our last ICYMI on the NFL, to collect up all the bits that may or may not have slipped under the radar.
McCoy avoids charges –
LeSean McCoy, the Buffalo Bills running back, had the case against him formally dropped. For those of you that remember, McCoy was implicated in a violent altercation at a nightclub in Philadelphia that resulted in the injury of off duty police officers. This has been formally dropped by the police, after they announced back in April that they would not be filing charges. The NFL will still review the matter, which could result in a league punishment, despite the outcome of the criminal investigation.
Jeffery wants to get paid –
Alshon Jeffery and the Bears are conducting a similar dance to Von Miller and the Broncos. Jeffery has served five years with the Bears, and considers himself target no1 for the passer in Chicago. Jeffery feels he should be paid as such, but the Bears want him to take a lower figure, to let them bolster their roster. With a franchise tag applied, he will play this season, but if they can’t agree a deal by the 15th, it could be his last season in Chi-Town.
White is better than you –
In case you were wondering what happened to the Atlanta Falcons last season, their ex-Receiver Roddy White has is all explained. The reason they lost is because they didn’t use him right, and when he told them so, they didn’t immediately change the entire play structure to give him all the ball. Also, he’s glad they dropped him, because he would have left anyway, because they wouldn’t let him win all the games for them. So, that’s the solution to that mystery.
Tuerk puts ink to paper –
Max Tuerk has signed his contract with the Chargers, making his transition to the NFL 100% official. The 295lb offensive lineman is looking forward to growing with the Chargers offensive line crew, and will be eased into the squad, like a proper rookie should be, after recovering fully from his recent injuries.
Bosa Still hasn’t –
Joey Bosa still wants to make sure people give him the respect that he thinks he deserves. So he’s still holding out at San Diego, being the only Rookie that hasn’t signed a contract with the team yet.
