The Washington Redskins have agreed to acquire quarterback Case Keenum from the Denver Broncos, according to a person familiar with the discussions. The deal is being held up as both sides work out financial details. NFL Network was the first to report the trade. The Redskins will send a sixth- and seventh-round pick in the 2020 draft to Denver. Denver has reworked Keenum’s contract so it will pay him a $500,000 restructuring bonus and will take on $3,5 million of Keenum’s salary. The Redskins will also pay Keenum $3.5 million. Mike Klis of Denver 9 was the first to report the salary details. Trades cannot be announced officially until the new league year starts on March 13 but Washington will want to complete a deal before teams can begin talking to other teams’ free agents on Monday. Keenum is not the big-name quarterback many expected the Redskins to chase this spring, but with franchise quarterback Alex Smith unlikely to play in 2019 and perhaps never again after … [Read more...] about Redskins agree to deal for ex-Vikings QB Case Keenum
The Detroit News Published 12:31 AM EST Feb 4, 2019 It's never too early to look ahead. After all, who lives in the moment anymore? It's 2019, for crissakes. On the heels of the New England Patriots' 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday night, the Super Bowl LIV odds have been released. No surprise, Vegas isn't high on the Lions. The Lions, fresh off a 6-10 season, check in at 100-1 to win the Super Bowl next year, according to oddsmaker Jeff Sherman. That is tied for the second-worst odds in the league, along with Washington, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Oakland and Arizona. Only Miami is worse, at 300-1. The Kansas City Chiefs are the favorite, at 6-1, followed by the Patriots, Rams and New Orleans Saints at 8-1. The L.A. Chargers, Bears and Steelers are 14-1; the Packers, Vikings and Cowboys are 16-1; the Eagles, Ravens, Colts, Browns and Texans are 20-1; the Seahawks are 30-1; the Falcons, Jaguars and Giants are 40-1; the 49ers are 50-1; the Panthers, … [Read more...] about Lions 100-1 to win Super Bowl LIV, per way-too-early odds
By Jerry Green The Detroit News Published 5:42 AM EST Feb 1, 2019 Atlanta — Fran Tarkenton, a Southern preacher’s son, took the snap from center. As he turned to hand off the football, he noticed Mean Joe Greene barreling in on him. Tarkenton dropped the ball. It rolled backward off L.C. Greenwood. Tarkenton pounced on the bouncing football and skidded with it into the end zone. Safety. Here we have a real-time skit from Super Bowl IX on a grisly, chilly day in New Orleans in January 1975. It featured two eventual members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame — Greene and Tarkenton — plus Greenwood, who himself should have been enshrined in Canton. Steelers 2, Vikings 0. That was the score at halftime as America watched on television, expecting to be entertained. Three field-goal attempts had failed and an interception had prevented a touchdown. Otherwise the football game was as gray as the weather. TV could not present the halftime show. It featured a … [Read more...] about Green: Teams, fans win with offense in Super Bowl

Where are the downtown rallies and the entrepreneurial types hawking bootleg team merchandise from busy intersections, city ordinances be damned?Where is the unbridled emotion befitting a Super Bowl lead-up, a force so potent that it has been known to inspire bouts of relative insanity, like the Philadelphia gentleman so moved by the Eagles Super Bowl victory last year that he bent over a pile of horse manure on a city street and took a celebratory bite?It seems fair to wonder, as the Patriots prepare to make their unprecedented ninth Super Bowl appearance in the past 18 years — including their third straight — whether some of the thrill is gone.
