I’m pleased we were able to negotiate this relief & look forward to a partnership with the team that doesn’t include a city cash contribution. The money saved from this agreement will help the EDA fund the small business loan program - it’s going straight back into the community. https://t.co/7fMtZboD9Y— Levar M.

Best part of DeAngelo Hall's anti-Haskins spiel was the former MeAngelo saying, "These young guys...want things given to them." LOL. Perhaps was acting/trolling, but rant was highly flawed. Dwayne beat out Joe Burrow but will shy away from competing w/ Kyle Allen? Okay. #Redskins— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) April 3, 2020
THIS is it right here. The implication that Dwayne "learns differently" "he should learn the system SLOWLY". Which directly questions his IQ and ability to learn. If not the case, then how else are we supposed to interpret this? https://t.co/4k773AAm3y pic.twitter.com/APMlg411tk— Signifying & Gallivanting! (@KMBmoreSkins) April 3, 2020
If Kyle Allen is a threat to Dwayne Haskins that is revealing. The Redskins have brought him in to be a backup who knows their offense. If Haskins plays well and builds on his final six quarters of 2019, he'll be fine.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) April 3, 2020
Why is he being annoying? Because he said something you don't like?— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) April 3, 2020
I took his comment to be that young players -- kids now -- don't like to compete. Not specific to Haskins.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) April 3, 2020
Here's the quote:— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) April 3, 2020
That looks to be pretty specific to Haskins to me
“I don’t think Dwayne Haskins is going to respond. Ron Rivera is an old school mentality type of coach. He wants competition. These young guys they want things given to them”

Ronald Darby mentioned the fact that the secondary is currently chocked full of DMV guys in Kendall Fuller (Good Counsel), Sean Davis (Maret, Maryland) and him (Potomac), and that he's known them both since high school, and thinks this secondary can be special #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) April 3, 2020
Logan Paulsen on Logan Thomas: "To me, the number one pass-catching threat is Logan Thomas. He could end up between 45 and 55 catches this year depending on how they utilize him." He says he provides flexibility and can be a matchup issue.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) April 3, 2020
#49ers announce the signing of WR Travis Benjamin and OL Tom Compton to 1-year deals.— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) April 3, 2020
I was told he played on the right side BECAUSE Tua was left handed. They believe he can play LT in the Alabama building.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 2, 2020
Sounds good. Where do you think that line move originates from? I'll tell you. Media mock drafts and some of the commentators on TV.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 2, 2020
With all due respect, NFL teams are taking calls from linemakers at Bovada.
If healthy, is a top 8 tackle. That means 2nd rounder. Worse case scenario 3rd rounder— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 2, 2020
I think A. Thomas is better suited right.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 3, 2020
They have much better foot quickness than Thomas— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 3, 2020

Good deal for the Chiefs, and Sammy gets a shot to get to $50 million over 3 years in KC. https://t.co/gLxouxOd6r— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 3, 2020
The Chiefs offense will now return:— Field Yates (@FieldYates) April 3, 2020
▫️10 of 11 Super Bowl starters
▫️5 of its top 6 leading rushers
▫️8 of its top 9 leading receivers
▫️6 of its top 7 OL in terms of snaps played last year
▫️OC Eric Bienemy
▫️Led by Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill
Before the Chiefs restructured Sammy Watkins’ contract and gave him the very rare no-trade clause for this season, KC was down to $171 in cap space - practically enough to buy some Gates Bar-B-Q for Andy Reid.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 3, 2020
No, that’s an Adam ‘funny’ tweet.— (@jeffreykelly) April 3, 2020
truly a, sign, of the times— Treb (@treblaw) April 3, 2020
Spot on. I think he is paid per Tweet.— Scott Simpson (@NimblewNumbers) April 3, 2020
This just in.....water is still wet....
Similarly, the DeAndre Hopkins-David Johnson trade still has not become official due to lack of physicals. So the trade is agreed to...but not processed. https://t.co/iSwM9RsyFq— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 3, 2020

Dak Prescott was throwing to Dez Bryant today. The two are working out again on Saturday as both continue their offseason training. One looking for a new long term contract, the other looking for a team— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) April 2, 2020
Bears’ GM Ryan Pace called the battle between Chicago QBs Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles an "open competition.”— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 3, 2020
The guy who should be getting more attention is Derrick Brown of Auburn. His 40 time is a concern but he's a really good football player I think will still end up in the top 10. Jefferson will be a better NFL player than the accolades he's gotten so far. https://t.co/8wv75o5AAx— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 2, 2020
Folks are just realizing that Tua's tape wasn't all that spectacular before the injury, aren't they?— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) April 3, 2020
Working my way through the list of corners today. Parnell Motley is super impressive. Not sure why he isn't talked about more - I should have checked him out a long time ago.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) April 3, 2020
Great eye discipline, physical, technically proficient. Athleticism is just decent, but he can play.
On Day 3 of the draft, if I need a box safety with some coverage range, I’m picking Maryland’s Antoine Brooks. Plays way faster than his 4.64 time in the 40 and is a controlled but authoritative force in run support.— Chris Trapasso (@ChrisTrapasso) April 3, 2020

A lot of us want to find a way to help right now. This was weighing heavily on Matt Patricia's mind until his wife gave him an idea.
