The Raiders and star pass rusher Khalil Mack continue to be engaged in a contractual stare down. The cold war between player and team could be on the verge of heating up.
The first shot? The curious decision by defensive Authentic NFL Cheap Jerseys coordinator Paul Guenther to call Mack out publicly, by claiming that the 2016 NFL defensive player of the year will have a lot of catching up to do when he ends his boycott of voluntary offseason workouts.
Of course, this assumes that Mack will opt to play the year-to-year franchise tag game. He may choose to take a firmer stand than Cousins ever did, and the next clue will come next week, when Mack either will, or won’t, show up for mandatory minicamp.
I think the biggest thing for me is just overall comfort level, Sarkisian said, via the team’s website. When I came in a year ago, it was learning the system that was in place. It was learning the players that were in place. In Year 2, I have a year in the system.
The Falcons were 21st in points in Kyle Shanahan’s first year as offensive coordinator before climbing up to the top spot in 2016 and no one in Atlanta would have a problem with history repeating itself.
People are stubborn, King said. Like, if you ask somebody why they’re doing something, and they give you the answer, and then you say, OK, and you change the answer, what’s the point in even asking them the question in the first place? How are you going to tell somebody else why they’re protesting? It’s been time and time again guys will say it has nothing to do with the flag, it’s police brutality and racial inequality and all this stuff, but then it’s a matter of disrespecting the flag.
In their head, they’re mad because of what they think somebody else is doing. And I could see that if it was still up to speculation, if players haven’t talked about the reasons. But nobody has come out and said, ‘I’m sitting or I’m kneeling to disrespect the Basketball Jerseys flag.’ So not one person has said that, but the issue is still about disrespecting the flag.
