The Chiefs traded for a TE yesterday and then today brought in three others for tryouts. Is Kelce hurt, toast, both?

That TE trade with the Jets is very weird. I think it had to be a pure salary dump but not sure on the details. Brown is a ST player at most. Why they would give up interior line depth for that still has me puzzled.

Also I have watched part of the 4th quarter of Jets Bengals like 6 times, I might have a problem

If watching Mike White isn’t right, then I wanna be wrong.

I can't find it now, but someone on Twitter was saying the other night that both the Chiefs and defenses are basically treating Kelce as a slot WR, not a TE, and it's making the Chiefs predictable in both the pass and run game. I wouldn't be surprised if this is with an eye towards more 2 TE sets to create more possibilities in the run game and pass blocking and maybe open up more favorable matchups for Kelce.

DJAX should have suitors, I'd add IND to the list, they looked much better the 1 full game TY Hilton was healthy for.

I'm not going to link to it here but there is an absolutely horrifying video going around of former Rams RB Zac Stacey abusing his ex-girlfriend.

Adams is right. What a cowardly, abusive display. That was definitely not the first time, too, which breaks my heart.

Zac can fuck right off, that is really despicable stuff.

Yeah that video made my stomach turn, he was way too comfortable doing that. There's no way that wasn't the first time.
My best guess would be that there was an unfortunate reason she had multiple cameras set up at different points in the home: She knew it would happen again.

I watched about a minute of this and turned it off. For someone who is seldom disturbed by any video this chilled me to the bone

I don't even think you need to see his actions to know he's done it before. She was way more composed than I would have ever imagined, trying to calm him down. It was her actions that made me positive it had happened before. What a fucking dirtbag. I believe in FL, a victim does not need to testify for the state to press charges, and with that video, even if she decides not to, the fact that she reported it, and they have evidence should be enough to make sure he does time, and hopefully, a lot of it.

Yeah. This kind of thing should be so easy for the NFL to handle. "Goodbye, you're permanently suspended." I will never understand how a league this obsessed with PR--and that does everything for PR reasons--passes up the opportunity to win some quick and easy public goodwill by just immediately kicking these guys to the curb. Instead we get the "Commissioners' Exempt List," investigations that sometimes rely on law enforcement and sometimes don't and all these tortured rationales for why they do what and when and no internal logic.

It might be that don't want to create a precedent in case, say, a star QB commits a similar offense. Watson's still in play because of the slow walk.

Stacy isn't an NFL player currently and hasn't been for some time. It's also extremely rare to have such clear evidence regarding an assault like this.

That was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. Their son was in the room, too. I don’t even know what to say. If anyone sees a gofundme for the woman and the kid please post it here, so I can do something to get the taste of evil out of my mouth.

And how does that work for the salary cap, if say:

1--the Saints are up against the cap next year
2--Hill is not the QB
3--QB gets hurt, Hill takes over

Does his contract increase the following season? Are they some kind of NLTBE type of thing?
