Source said Sunday afternoon Cowboys are not close to reaching a multi-year contract with QB Dak Prescott.
The deadline is July 15, which is this Wednesday, and while the situation could change, the report of not being close isn't exactly optimistic. Prescott would enter 2020 season on $31.4M franchise tag if no deal by deadline, the tweet went on to say.
Sony Michel posted a picture on his Instagram that shows him without a walking boot.
Beat writer Mike Reiss said some Patriots have already returned to the area, getting a head start on their quarantine. Michel is recovering from offseason surgery on his foot, and as a rehabbing player is allowed to use the team's facilities, which he's been taking advantage of for several weeks now. Unfortunately, we don't see Michel's fantasy arrow pointing up with the loss of Tom Brady.
The Detroit Lions' backfield battle will be one to watch once training camp starts later this month.
Detroit drafted multifaceted Georgia product D'Andre Swift in the second round to bolster a running back crew that has lacked pizzazz when incumbent starter Kerryon Johnson has gone down with knee injuries.
Swift said in the story he's not sure what role he'll have this season with the Lions assuming Johnson is healthy and ready to go. The story added Swift brings a dual threat out of the backfield with his ability to catch passes. We have Swift 20th among our RBs with Johnson 47th, so we think Swift is the back to own now.
