We are starting to hit that lull in the off-season, where not a whole
lot is really happening. There is some news to talk about though and we
cover as much as we can of it.
Zach Mettenberger has been released by the Titans, we discuss if he has
any potential landing spots, there’s some injury news, as Shaq Lawson
has to have shoulder surgery and may not be ready to start the season,
Sammy Watkins also has a broken bone in his foot as well. The Atlanta
Falcons made some waves with their
possibly cheaply priced concessions, Jason Jones signs with the Dolphins and Anquan Boldin could go to the Titans.
We also keep things going with our burning questions on some NFL teams. What questions do we ask? Tune in to find out.
Another week closer to the NFL Draft and another crazy deal happened as
well. This time for the number two pick in the draft went to another
team. The Eagles and Browns trade now sees the Eagles poised to take one
of the Quarterbacks, while the Browns can stock up on picks. It is even
possible that the Browns trade down again before it is all said and
There’s also the big news of Josh Norman being untendered by the
Carolina Panthers and allowed to become an unrestricted free agent. We
discuss where he could land and if this shakes up the draft at all.

East in one show. Last Word on Sports Writer Quinton Mayo makes his
