BUY THE TEAM FOR THE LOVE OF GOD— Seth English (Generals 0-0) (@SethEnglish) April 13, 2022
I hope NFL players realize how serious the Washington Commanders story is. If the team was really stealing money, that means they also stole from players, not just fellow owners. Almost half that money was supposed to go to the players. This is about trust.#EmpowerPlayers— Matt Schaub (@matt8schaub) April 13, 2022

Derek Carr's $40.5 million new-money average on his new three-year extension with the #Raiders puts him 5th among QBs and makes him the 7th member of the $40M+ club, joining Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Matthew Stafford and Dak Prescott.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) April 13, 2022
Wonder if the Carr extension will basically wind up looking like three tags with a balloon payment as the 3rd year of the extension? The fact that there are no guarantee leaks makes me think the run of fully guaranteed QB deals ended at 1.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) April 13, 2022
More on Derek Carr's 3-year, $121.5 million extension ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 13, 2022
• He gets $25M in '22, $33M in '23, $42M in '24 (total = $100M).
• The $33M for '23 and $7.5M of his '24 money (total of $40.5M) becomes fully guaranteed 3 days after next year's Super Bowl.
• He gets $7.5M to sign.
I can only imagine what Twitter would look like right now if Lamar Jackson had signed a similarly structured contract on his own.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) April 13, 2022
Carr says he structured his extension to give #Raiders flexibility to sign other guys like Hunter Renfrow and Foster Moreau. Says he went through "heartbreak" last time he signed an extension because his "best friend" left. #KhalilMack— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) April 13, 2022
"...wow, cool. Is this good for Gabe [Jackson]? Is this good for Khalil [Mack]? Is this good for Amari [Cooper]?’ ...I didn’t want to hurt our team; that’s the last thing I would ever want to do. So, hopefully we didn’t. (laughter) That’s the last thing that I intended to do."— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) April 13, 2022
A couple other things here ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 13, 2022
• The no-trade clause was key (allowing Carr to dictate his next location, if he's eventually traded).
• His full injury guarantee is $65.5M.
• $5.2 million raise for this year.
• If he's cut after '23, it's a 1-year, $45.7M extension.
You aren't just comparing this rookie QB class to your veteran starter. It's this rookie QB + the 3 or 4 other players you can now afford vs your veteran QB. That's what can push these guys up higher than their pure draft grade.— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) April 13, 2022
TE Noah Fant becomes the first player the Seahawks have ever picked up their 5th year option on.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) April 12, 2022
The team previously declined it on 4 other first rounders, while Seattle did not use a 1st round pick in 2013-2015 and 2017.
DE L.J. Collier’s 5th year option is unlikely.
More on Odell Beckham’s first ACL surgery in 2020: The procedure, which was performed by a non-team affiliated doc, led to a rehab that took longer than expected while Beckham was training in AZ. Some wondered if he wasn’t working hard enough. Turns out, just not a great surgery. https://t.co/6g7iLd4laa— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 13, 2022
Very interesting article that dives into what attributes makes a Pro Bowl player and where they're drafted— George Carmi (@Gcarmi21) April 13, 2022

Look at how quickly he reads this play. Probably knows whats coming from the motion but anticipates the pullers from the right side of the OL, gets there so quickly and is able to wrong-arm the first puller before engaging with the second.

There has been a lot of seemingly random XFL news this week. With the rival USFL set to debut this weekend, I don't think the timing is an accident.— Kevin Seifert (@SeifertESPN) April 13, 2022

Think this year's draft is just generally underwhelming compared to previous years. Maybe it's because of the lackluster QB class? But I feel like I hardly know anything about the first round guys.— Josh Riley (@alltime_josh) April 13, 2022

This is based on a longstanding model from @bburkeESPN that works off factors that include: expert mock drafts, scouts inc. grades and team needs.— Seth Walder (@SethWalder) April 13, 2022
The tool was built by a large group of members of our team (not me!). We're pumped about it. Try it out!

Juan Soto has just become the youngest player in Nationals history to hit his 100th career home run. He beats out Bryce Harper for the distinction by a mere nine days.— Matt Weyrich (@ByMattWeyrich) April 13, 2022
If it's a no-hitter, whatever. Yank him. Clayton Kershaw has thrown one.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) April 13, 2022
But there have been more than 220,000 games in MLB history. There have been 23 perfect games.
Everything -- especially a pitch count of 80 -- is lining up to at least let Kershaw try. You cannot pull him.
It sucks that Clayton Kershaw was pulled after 7 perfect innings, but it was the right decision.— Inside Injuries (@InsideInjuries) April 13, 2022
- irregular offseason
- shortened Spring Training
- lengthy history of arm and back injuries
At this point in the season it isn't worth pushing it and risking a significant injury.
