What a disappointment Callaway was this season after a very nice rookie season. Callaway started the season on the bench and never got his groove back. Reports are coming out that the team simply had too many issues with Callaway. The team obviously felt it was best to cut their losses with the receiver. Callaway has talent but has had some character concerns since college. A team will likely snag him at some point but he likely clears waivers before a team signs him.
The NFL announced Thursday 11 teams have committed to attend Colin Kaepernick’s private workout in Atlanta on Saturday and more teams are expected to also commit by Saturday.
The teams that have already committed are the Cardinals, Falcons, Browns, Broncos, Lions, Dolphins, Patriots, Giants, Jets, Buccaneers and Redskins. The league also announced former NFL head coach Hue Jackson will lead the drills and former head coach Joe Philbin will also be in attendance. There has been some questioning of the workout with the league but it is interesting that one-third of the league has already committed and more are expected. How much will come out of this is yet to be determined and nothing may happen until 2020 but it’s still an interesting development to watch unfold. We’ll see if any more teams commit before Saturday.
Vikings WR Adam Thielen missed another practice Thursday and is becoming unlikely to play in Week 11.
Thielen is heading toward his second straight missed game after leaving Week 9 early with that hamstring injury. Stefon Diggs was very quiet against the Cowboys but part of that was also due to the Vikings feeding the red-hot Dalvin Cook in Minnesota’s win in Week 10. It will be interesting how Minnesota gameplans the two at home Sunday against the Broncos but Diggs still has upside, but as we’ve seen, can get very quiet at times.
