Pre-injury Bryce Love (@Blovee_20) was a bonafide game-changer, a true home run hitter.— Austin Gayle (@PFF_AustinGayle) May 7, 2019
If he can return to his 2017 form, he may be one of the major steals of the draft. Love and Derrius Guice should be quite the treat in 2019 if both can stay healthy. pic.twitter.com/9Q2UEZnhJ6
The #Redskins had 28 different players hit the IR in 2018. 26 the year before. Now they're doing something about it, hiring "outside consultants" to examine their injury protocol this offseason, per @michaelpRTD. https://t.co/yAxD2kQkLB— 106.7 The Fan (@1067theFan) May 6, 2019
Case Keenum said he’s excited to get to work and to work with Dwayne Haskins. Said he watched a lot of Haskins’ games at Ohio State and he’s been through this drill before. He believes competition makes everyone better. #HTTR pic.twitter.com/P1xcICGpWP— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) May 6, 2019
Sean Taylor's ability to wrap up and corral a player while hitting them real, real hard was just unparalleled https://t.co/aH7j4Bd4x5— BUM CHILLUPS (@edsbs) May 7, 2019

Redskins fans, which position group ranks weakest?
It's a very important day for Suh, Ajayi, Ansah and the best remaining NFL free agents.— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) May 7, 2019
And it has everything to do with the comp pick formula and a 4pm deadline, writes @AlbertBreer https://t.co/eDq0sl7wQp
Expect to see more free agent signings starting today — and these veterans will likely be scooped up first https://t.co/fDW5pJIO7U— SB Nation NFL (@SBNationNFL) May 7, 2019

Continuing a look through the CBA, how is it that a team like the Patriots can have an agreement with a Tom Brady owned company?— Field Gulls (@FieldGulls) May 7, 2019
Well, let’s take a look as we start digging into Article 2. https://t.co/vaFv2oT0ay pic.twitter.com/8uNqby16w9
NFL draft: Which teams had the 10 worst draft classes this century?— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) May 7, 2019
1. I hated doing this, looking back at decades of futility
2. I loved doing this, allowing me to drop in one of my favorite lines from "Midnight Run"

"At least one team" asked Daniel Jones to work out as a TE during the Combine because they "didn’t think he was good enough to be a NFL starting QB." [per @MMehtaNYDN]— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) May 7, 2019
So some teams think he isn't good enough to be a QB period, and the Giants meanwhile took him 6th overall.
Don't know what Cowboys call shockingly high for Amari Cooper. 2020 WR franchise tag will be roughly $18M. Dallas should have expected Cooper's agent to ask for more than Dez Bryant's 2015 deal adjusted for salary cap growth (almost $18.5M per year/$59M of guarantees/$42M fully). https://t.co/aZWNcyfyrP— Joel Corry (@corryjoel) May 7, 2019

Paradoxically, the best passing teams often are the teams that pass the least, because of how game scripts unfold.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) May 7, 2019
Today at FP: one neat way to track how frequently the best passing teams are also the most frequent passing teams https://t.co/MrODkMKce3 pic.twitter.com/s0rRELeUko
The Giants allowed an 89.8 passer rating last season – leading the NFC East in the process. pic.twitter.com/qmf8NQcvG5— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) May 7, 2019
Wentz contract negotiation would be fascinating. His ceiling is as high as any QB's, his floor very low given injury concern. How do you place a value on that?— Andy Benoit (@Andy_Benoit) May 7, 2019

The latest on Jason Pierre-Paul from @NFLTotalAccess: Several doctors will review his scans in the coming days. Concern is it’s a fractured vertebrae in his neck. If surgery is required, he’d face a 5-6 month recovery. But no decisions yet on how to proceed. @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/76QjsG8qnu— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) May 7, 2019
NFL has approved more than $650 million in concussion settlement claims, but doctor-shopping concerns linger https://t.co/vxOOZm5VFV— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 8, 2019
This time of year I have mixed feelings, happy 4 the #UDFA's that get an opportunity to make a team & distain for the ballclubs that cut gd players after 1 day in shorts. If the guys fail a physical that's 1 thing but to have a turnstile of players is a waste of everyone's time. pic.twitter.com/rqt1DVw8vq— Dan Shonka (@Ourlads_Shonka) May 7, 2019
