Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr is not denying the claim he gave Aaron Rodgers the finger and the “suck it” sign after breaking his collar bone in Week 6, but he had plenty to say about the Packers quarterback on Twitter Saturday.
I couldn’t ask him to give us any more than he’s given us, Belichick said. The 49ers are getting a good player, and they’re getting a good person, and they’re getting a great teammate, and they’re getting a good quarterback.
Brady, 40, has said he’d like to play until he’s 45 years old. But life in the NFL is unpredictable, and now the Patriots are back to square one at the backup quarterback position.
But Lane reportedly failed his physical Tuesday and will stay with Seattle. As a result, Texans will now get a 2018 third-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for Brown and a 2018 fifth-round pick.
Jeremy Lane failed his physical with Houston, per source. Trade now amended: Duane Brown and a 2018 5th for Seattle’s 2018 3rd and 2019 2nd.
Brown was one of Houston’s most outspoken critics of the “inmates running the prison” comment made by Texans owner Bob McNair earlier this month.
He now has a new team in what appears to be a win-win for both sides.
“Passing the ball is tricky, because if you don’t complete it, it stops the clock,” Forte said. “When you run the ball, the clock keeps rolling. If you’re running the ball and you keep their offense off the field, basically time’s running out on them. A lot of bad things can happen when you’re throwing the ball: Interceptions, sacks…. When you’re closing games out, you definitely got to be able to run the ball.”
