Safety Damarious Randall was traded from the Packers to the Browns this offseason, but he hasn’t switched his basketball rooting allegiances to his new city.
Of course, the Cavs will have to win in order for that to happen and Randall’s not the only one who thinks that’s an unlikely outcome. The Warriors opened as -1000 favorites at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas and are massive favorites across the board as they try for a third title in four years.
Surprising or not, the move leaves the Lions with an opening at tight end on the first team. They signed former Seahawk Luke Willson and former Falcon Levine Toilolo to go with 2017 fourth-round pick Michael Roberts for a competition that quarterback Matthew Stafford is looking forward to watching.
You know, I think we’ve got a lot of talented guys in that room, honestly, Stafford said, via the team’s website. I think it’s going to be a fun spring and into summer to see kind of how that shakes out. They’re all working extremely hard. You know, really all of them learning a system that’s still somewhat new to them.
General Manager Bob Quinn talked up Roberts’ versatility to contribute in the passing game as a receiver, in protection, as well as his role last year was really probably one of our better blockers on the line of scrimmage. He only caught four passes as a rookie, however, while Willson and Toilolo had 27 between them.
So it’s frustrating to see that the NFL had the opportunity to kind of right the wrongs and change the narrative that’s best for everyone — people who are offended by protests and a league that’s 70-percent African American that understands and lived a lot of these problems that guys are protesting about. So dropped the ball there, but we’ll see where it goes.
