Commanders fined and deprived of two training sessions
Like the Cowboys, the Commanders crossed the line. According to ESPN, the Washington franchise has been sanctioned by the NFL for over-contacting during spring training in recent weeks. Two spring training sessions will be taken away from him in 2023. On a personal note, Ron Rivera is fined $100,000.
The facts were noted by the players’ union, which reviewed the images of the training sessions.
Kareem Hunt (RB) wants to extend and end his career in Cleveland
Will Kareem Hunt still be a Browns player in 2023? The Ohio native had a less prolific 2021 season than the previous one with five touchdowns scored but now seems clearly identified as the replacement for Nick Chubb, who had his contract extended for three years for 36 million dollars last summer . A sum that should push the Browns to offer a much less lucrative contract to Hunt. In any case, the latter declared his desire to stay in Cleveland on the franchise’s website.
“I hope to stay in Cleveland for a long time. I was born and raised here, I will love to continue playing with Nick Chubb and this great team. I would like to end my career at the Browns. »
The 26-year-old player still has a year of contract with Cleveland and will be a free agent in the summer of 2023 if no agreement is reached between him and the franchise.
Justin Hilliard (LB, Giants) suspended for 2 matches for doping
Justin Hilliard (LB, Giants) will be suspended for the first two games of the 2022 season. The NFL has informed the 25-year-old player that this sanction stems from a positive test for a prohibited substance (spironolactone, a diuretic). Hilliard only played two games with New York before injuring his ankle in October. On Friday, he explained himself via his Twitter account on this suspension.
“It seems that I made a mistake by taking my partner’s treatment instead of my anti-inflammatories. I am well aware of league policy and take full responsibility for the presence of a prohibited substance in my body. »
Evan McPherson (Bengals) rentre un field goal de 63 yards
Impressive with composure and efficiency for his rookie season on the side of Cincinnati, Evan McPherson never ceases to impress his teammates. The Bengals kicker ended his mini training camp by returning a field goal from 63 yards, 3 yards short of the league record held by Justin Tucker since 2021. A great way to get the message across that the cold-blooded kicker is gearing up for a top-flight second season.
The signatures : Jake Kumerow (WR, Bills), Steven Means (DE, Ravens), Darryl Williams (OL, Patriots), Jonotthan Harrisson (OL, Falcons), Jalen Dalton (DL, Falcons)
Sections : Kurt Benkert (QB, Packers), Jeremy McNichols (RB, Falcons) and Austin Trammel (WR, Falcons)
– The veteran running back David Johnson and the Saints failed to agree a contract for the upcoming season. This was announced by the 30-year-old player on his Twitter account on Saturday. Concerned about the legal concerns of Alvin Kamara and the state of form of Mark Ingram, the New Orleans franchise had invited the former running back of the Cardinals and Texans during their mini training camp. If he never managed to repeat his performance of the 2016 season (2118 yards in the Cards jersey), David Johnson showed, among the Texans, that he could still render great service.
