The preview draft of the day: Washington Football Team
Julian Edelman already withdrawn for 2021?
Patriots No. 1 Receiver, Julian Edelman has not played since October 25 and only played 6 games in 2020. Involved, a knee injury that pushed him to pass on the operating table, in order to deflate the joint affected. This unavailability could last since Karen Guregian, for the Boston Herald, announces that the player could miss the 2021 season. According to her, Edelman’s injury history makes his participation in the next year very uncertain.
The question of his future in the franchise may therefore arise in the coming weeks. Currently, the veteran wide receiver is on a base salary of $ 2.8 million and releasing him would allow the Patriots to recoup $ 3.4 million from their payroll.
Identity papers please
Such Patrice Evra chasing the mole, Rusty Hardin, the lawyer of Deshaun Watson (QB, Texans) wants names. This is the reason that prompted him to ask for an urgent hearing with a judge. Of the 22 women chasing the Texans quarterback, only 2 have revealed their true identities. In a recent public statement, Hardin justified this request.
“When we asked Mr. Buzbee to identify his clients in the previous weeks, he refused and told us to make a request to a judge. Today, that’s what we did. As previously noted in the record, Mr. Buzbee’s use of anonymity violates Texas laws and the basic concept of fairness.
While I understand that this anonymity is often used as a shield by victims, Mr. Buzbee uses it as a sword. Instead of shielding his clients from public opinion, Mr. Buzbee continues to use their anonymous accusations to destroy Mr. Watson. It is just unfair. We look forward to resolving this in court. “

It was a complicated procedure at first, but I had a ruptured ankle ligament to repair. I tried to play as much as I could but couldn’t do it right, push the way I wanted. I had the operation on December 7th. It will be 5 months and I feel good, like before the injury. “

Performances such as some rumors suggested that Miami could have selected a quarterback with his pick number 3.

Asked about NFL Network regarding his quarterback, Byron Jones (CB, Dolphins) was enthusiastic, while waiting for clear progress.
” That’s exciting. This team is made up of many young players. What we saw of him last year was great, but we hope to see a big improvement. This kid works, I know that. He’s a great kid, with his head on his shoulders. We are surrounded by a lot of good players who want to be great again. So I can’t wait to see his progress. His contribution to the team is already good, but we expect even more this year. That’s exciting. I can’t wait to see him do his magic tricks. “
Arrived in the big league after a serious injury and in a season made very special by COVID, it makes sense that the Dolphins are still giving their young quarterback a chance. But it seems clear that Tua Tagovailoa is expected around the corner.

On the eve of his sixth NFL season, Demarcus Robinson (WR, Chiefs) extended his love affair with the Chiefs for a season. The receiver wants to prove that he can be an important piece of this attack. While on the NFL Network’s ‘Good Morning Football’ show, Robinson expressed his ambitions for the future.
“I saw what they saw about my role next year, and without Sammy Watkins they told me I would have more of an opportunity. They have a lot of things for me in store. I’m ready to go back to work and see what they have for me. Each season, it turns between 4, 5 touchdowns and 500 yards … I’m looking for an opportunity. It is not for them to give it to me but for me to go and get it. Show them I can be a guy at 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. I’m ready to make it happen. They told me they have something for me and I’m ready to show them. “
With Patrick Mahomes as a quarterback, the possibility of accumulating yards and touchdowns is greatly facilitated. Behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, Robinson is going to have to do twice his career best performance if he is to achieve his goals.
