The Buccaneers have two weeks to decide whether to keep or to cut receiver Antonio Brown. In 14 days, he returns from the three-game suspension imposed on him for giving the team, and in turn the league, a fake vaccination card.
On Sunday, PFT reported that the Bucs are indeed considering the possibility of parting ways with Brown.
The story went on to say if Brown were a bottom-of-the-roster player, he’d already be gone. Since he’s regarded as an important piece of the offense (the Bucs are 5-0 this year when he plays), it becomes difficult for a team that hopes to win the Super Bowl to voluntarily jettison a player with the skill to help them get there. The story added Brown’s antics endangered people like coach Bruce Arians and 83-year-old offensive consultant Tom Moore. Arians is a three-time cancer survivor. Moore falls squarely into the segment of society most vulnerable to the worst possible outcome. It's certainly a situation to watch over the next two weeks.
Now, as the Giants head out west to train and practice all week on the campus of the University of Arizona, Jake Fromm is in line to start at quarterback for the Giants in next Sunday's game against the Chargers in Los Angeles.
Jones is not yet cleared for contact due to a strained neck and Glennon started Sunday, but he is in concussion protocol after being diagnosed following the game. The story added a week ago Fromm was not on the Giants, or even the active roster of the Buffalo Bills, given he was fourth on their depth chart and on the practice squad. The story will give you a nice background on Fromm if you're interested. His last game that counted: the Jan. 1, 2020 Sugar Bowl in which he led Georgia to victory over Baylor.
Some who have watched Saquon Barkley suggest that he hasn’t returned to the form he showed before last year’s torn ACL, but Barkley rejected that notion after Sunday’s loss.
“It’s week whatever in the NFL, no one is 100 percent physically. That’s their opinion, but I know I am,” Barkley said, via WFAN.com.
The story opined the Giants were terrible before Barkley tore his ACL and they remain terrible through 12 games of this season even after Barkley's return. The story went on to say the Giants were playing without quarterback Daniel Jones and a pair of wide receivers, which would seem to set the stage for Barkley to put the offense on his shoulders, but he managed 55 rushing yards on 11 carries and 19 receiving yards on six catches and dropped a pair of passes.
