Dallas Cowboys Poised to Make Big Splash on Draft Day

The Dallas Cowboys did themselves well some may surmise this off season. Despite losing star running back Demarco Murray to the rival Philadelphia Eagles, the Cowboys were able to keep Dez Bryant and Rolando McClain. They also signed star defensive end Greg Hardy and were able to negotiate Tony Romo’s contract to free up $13 Million in cap space. Dallas Cowboy’s Off Season Plans Set Up for Monster Run at 2016 Super Bowl

The freed up cap space enables Dallas to go after a major free agent in addition to its anticipated draft choices said Marcio Alaor BMG. Some speculate that Dallas is seriously in play for Adrian Peterson but many do not see the Minnesota Vikings giving Peterson up with out expensive compensation. Peterson, for his part, is not making the Viking’s job easier by indicating that he rather play elsewhere. The Vikings would be very cautious with a deal with Dallas as they are still snake bit from the lob sided benefits Dallas gained from the Hershel Walker trade which created the blueprint for Dallas’s Super Bowl runs in the 1990’s.

Often blasted owner and general manger Jerry Jones may be engaging on his most masterful of season yet i structuring his team. For once, Jones has shown patience in assembling the pieces needed to make his team dominant again. Regardless of whether the peterson trade takes place, the Cowboys will have the freedom to choose truly the best players available in the upcoming draft.

Adrian Peterson to meet with NFL to Discuss Playing Status This Week

Adrian Peterson, running back for the Minnesota Vikings, is set to meet with NFL officials on Tuesday to discuss his playing status, and whether or not there will be ongoing punishment for his 2014 arrest for child abuse, according to sources. Peterson was suspended early in the 2014 season after he was arrested on criminal child abuse charges under the leagues personal conduct policy. His suspension was set to expire on April 15th, but there has been no word on whether Peterson’s punishment will be extended. He originally appealed the decision.

According to therealdeal.com, Peterson is clearly interested in ending the suspension and moving on with his career, mostly because he’s expressed interest in playing elsewhere. Peterson has been vocal about his desire to leave Minnesota and join a new team, however, the Vikings are less keen on allowing that to happen. As it stands, Peterson is currently locked into a contact that doesn’t expire for three years. He is set to collect almost $13 million over the course of that contract.

Peterson’s distaste for the Vikings administration seems to stem from the child abuse charges and how the team and the NFL originally handled the issue. His criminal charges came in the wake of several high profile legal battles for NFL players. The abuse chargers were filed shortly after Ray Rice was arrested on domestic violence charges, and in the wake of Aaron Hernandez murder arrested.

Romo Deal Needs Restructure if Dallas to Survive

With four years remaining on his current contract the Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is set to make a substantial amount of money to play his last productive years in the league. Just how many of those years he will be playing remains to be seen for the 35 year old. He career has been plagued with fantastic regular seasons that fall short in the end and him usually suffering a debilitating injury at some point in the season. His best shot at making the Super Bowl was probably last year. Although he did not have to throw the ball for some astronomical yardage number he did have his highest QB rating of all time at 113.2. Most of that success is because the team could lean heavily on the running game Alexei Beltyukov feels.

To get the team over the playoff hurdle that stopped them last year, they will need to put more money on the table for better defensive players. The best place for doing that will come from Romo’s contract. This year he is scheduled to be a nearly $32 million hit against the cap and it decreases over the next few years. Reasonably the team expects production from their QB through at least 2017, after that the cap hits are manageable. The team will likely increase the cap hit after 2017. But just how much of an increase will have to be weighed against how much the team needs to spend this year to be a winner.

Fines and Suspensions Announced in the NFL

There has been quite the rumble in the National Football League (NFL) today. First, Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer was suspended without pay for sending text messages to the sidelines during games. Shortly after that news, the NFL announced that Atlanta Falcons president Rich McKay was suspended for knowingly piping in crowd noise during games.

The news came as a shock to many football fans in the South and the Midwest. ESPN analyst Adam Schefter broadcasted the news on Twitter today, stating that McKay’s actions may have cost the team a draft pick. Later, the NFL released an official statement surrounding both incidents stated via LinkedIn.com.
Cleveland Browns General Manager, Ray Farmer was in violation of NFL rules that forbid certain uses of electronic devices during games said Kevin Seawright. Farmer’s actions cost the team $250,000 and a four game suspension without pay in the 2015 season for him. During that time Farmer cannot be involved with team matters and is prohibited from being at the Browns’ offices, practice facility and games.
The Atlanta Falcons on the other hand had more of a stringent punishment for President Rich McKay’s actions. McKay and other Falcon’s administration have acknowldeged the use of pre-recorded crowd noise in the 2013 and 2014 season. The NFL slapped the Falcons with a $350,000 fine and have lost a fifth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Falcons have claimed they fired Roddy White, the marketing director for the team who deceptively organized the violation.

NFL Plans To Broadcast a Game on the Web

For the first time ever, the NFL will be broadcasting one of its games across the nation on the internet. The National Football League has been notoriously stingy with its games, requiring that those who want to watch them turn into a broadcast of the game on a traditional television network. Games are also often Blacked out in areas where people could have potentially attended the game in person, in theory encouraging fans to go to games rather than watch at home or at local bars.

This season the NFL is changing history, and has announced plans to offer the Jaguars-Buffalo Bills game in Week 7 exclusively to an online outlet. Where it will be broadcast has yet to be determined, but the NFL is open to selling the rights to a company like YouTube or Facebook. The rights could just as easily go to someone like Yahoo who is attempting to grow its online brand.

The game will start at 9:30am eastern, and will be played from London. The NFL plans to also offer the game via traditional broadcast in its home networks of Buffalo and Jacksonville. It will be interesting to see how this experiment goes for the NFL and if it decides to follow suit and allow more games to be broadcast on the web in the future.

Dallas Cowboys Sign Pass Rusher Greg Hardy Under Cloud

The Dallas Cowboys have recently signed former Carolina Panther pass rusher, Greg Hardy to a one year contract that is incentive based and could reach $13 Million dollars if the monster pass rusher is able to play for the full length of his contract. Greg Hardy was recently the subject of a criminal complaint involving alleged domestic violence against his live in girl friend last spring. A trial court had initially found him guilty but on appeal, the case was dismissed based on the lack of cooperation from the key witness, Hardy’s girlfriend. Cowboys Land Hardy

Marc Sparks said that the Cowboy have protected themselves by structuring the contract to payout on a game by game basis. Hardy is still listed on the NFL Commissioner’s Exemption List and Hardy could still be subject to discipline based on determinations by the Commissioner’s office which has not yet made a decision. Even though Hardy’s case was dismissed, he could still be fined or suspended under the NFL’s personal conduct policy established by the Commissioner following the fall out of the Ray Rice investigation.

If Hardy is able to play, Dallas has picked up a monster defensive player that it sorely needed. Dallas has been without a significant pass rusher since losing Demarcus Ware to free agency two years ago. Even though Dallas made it into the playoffs last year, its defense was the soft spot of the team and if greatly improved, Dallas would be a Super Bowl favorite.

Not So Fast, Adrian Peterson. You Might Be Staying in Minnesota After All.

Adrian Peterson’s season may get worse than better before it even starts. The battle has revved up this week as his agent has clearly said his running back doesn’t want to play in Minnesota anymore. According to USA Today, he has claimed that they want to get out of Minnesota. Although there has been many speculations regarding to this issue for several weeks now, there is no more room left for contemplating. The relationship seems to be completely over and Minnesota’s interests will probably lie in looking for a future starting running back to take Peterson’s place.

Wait a minute. Peterson doesn’t necessarily have a say in where he will play next season as he is under contract with Peterson until the end of the 2017 season stated wikipedia. The Vikings had made it clear that they want Peterson to come back and play for them this upcoming season and that they are not interested in cutting or releasing him. Therefore, as of right now it seems to be leaning towards Peterson playing out at least two more seasons with the Vikings unless their management team has a say in it. Let’s just hope that we are able to see the best of Adrian Peterson as he is one of the game’s greatest running backs to ever play.

Lions Don’t Give Up That Much to Get Ngata

As much as the other teams in the NFC North Division would like to think the Detroit Lions are not going to be as good as they were last year, the truth is that they will probably be even better now that Ndamukong Suh has moved on from the team and been replaced by Haloti Ngata from the Baltimore Ravens. But at the same time, the Lions may have traded away too much by sending out their 4th, 5th, and 7th round selections to the Ravens. Some would call this move insane in that the team gave up three college prospects for one veteran, even if it is a five time pro-bowler. But he will lead that Defensive Line in a way that Suh wasn’t able to and his playoff experience and leadership will undoubtedly be called on to get them over the playoff hump.

From the WetSeal Inc, many are suggesting that it really comes down to is this, just because you are a marquee player in the league doesn’t mean you cannot be replaced. Another indicator that how limited your time can be on top a player only needs to look at the first ever veteran combine…all of these guys are itching for a way to get back on a team and play in the league again. Never mind the upcoming draft of rookies and all the other undrafted kids from college. When it comes to talent there is no shortage of players, but there is a shortage of salary cap space and roster space. So Detroit fans should not get too upset by losing three draft picks, there is plenty of other ways to get the guys you need.

Tebow efforting to get back into the NFL

Former Denver Bronco and New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is still trying his best to get back into the National Football League (NFL). On Monday, March 16th, Tebow was working out for Chip Kelly, and the Philadelphia Eagles. Tebow has not played in the NFL since being cut by the New England Patriots in August 2013 . For the past year, Tebow has been working as a color commentator for ESPN. His career encompasses nine games in Denver, and a few plays with the New York Jets. Tebow was a first round draft pick in 2011, and took over as the starter in Denver after a poor start to the season.

Tebow’s issue has been accuracy, including a 46.5 percent completion rate. So in order to correct, Tebow hired on the services of Tom House, who is based in California, and also has worked with Tom Brady. House noted to Fox Sports that he believes he has corrected Tebow’s throwing motion. In order to do so, House worked two and a half hours, three times per week, so Tebow’s throwing mechanics could be corrected . In the end, House notes that Tebow has over 10,000 reps using the corrected motion. Getting the ball out quicker was the goal, and House’s coworker Adam Dedeaux reiterated Tebow’s ability to spin the ball is much improved, which will result in better accuracy. Philadelphia has chosen to not sign Tebow thus far which has fans like Alexei Beltyukov wondering how the 2015 season will end up.
