New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski addressed the media at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Saturday, and while he largely avoided questions regarding his playing status, he did offer some potential hints.
According to NESN’s Doug Kyed, Gronk said that fans will see a “freak-a-leak” when he comes back. Then, in response to a follow-up question about whether he’ll return to play in 2018, Gronkowski said, “Maybe.”
Nonsense, rotten guesswork presented as fact. Castillo had played 10 seasons in the NL for the Marlins before playing two for the Twins in the AL. He was the Marlin who, in the 2003 NLCS, hit the infamous fly ball to spectator Steve Bartman — at Wrigley Field.
Following the signing of LeGarrette Blount in free agency, which alleviated Detroit’s immediate need at the position, Quinn said he doesn’t feel pressure to further bolster the position through the draft.
“If we had to go play a football game today, I think we have enough running backs to be competitive,” Quinn said during a Thursday press conference.
The comments are reminiscent of Quinn’s reaction immediately following last year’s draft, when he professed confidence in the group he had after failing to select a back with one of the team’s nine choices. The Lions went on to finish last in the NFL in rushing last season, churning out a paltry 76.3 yards per game and 3.4 yards per carry.
But even though he didn’t declare drafting a back as an objective next week, Quinn also isn’t ruling it out. He’s simply stating the team is able to stick to its board without reaching to fill a perceived need.
Wade delivered a throwback 28-point performance in 26 minutes off the bench to propel the Heat to a 113-103 win and snap the Sixers’ 17-game win streak.
“A lot of people think that if you do decide to go out it’s because you weren’t supposed to be able to play no more. It’s not always supposed to be that,” Wade told ESPN after the game.
