The Jets are rolling with Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater, and Sam Darnold as their quarterbacks in that order, for now. There is a three-man competition for the starting job, after the Jets took Darnold third overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Jets traded up from sixth to third in the draft, in order to select Darnold. That trade-up move was the first sign that Hackenberg was finished with the Jets.
In the footage, he repeatedly tells the officers the driver was crazy and trying to kidnap him, and driving 100 miles per hour. He’s trying to kill me me, this guy, Dykstra says.
Originally, the bill would have blocked any facility from opening a sports book if its owners had a 10 percent stake or greater in a professional sports team.
That would have affected the Golden Nugget, which is owned by Tilman Fertitta, who also owns the Houston Rockets of the NBA.
But under the amendment, that casino would be barred only from accepting bets on NBA games, according to a source.
Will they figure out a way to meet in the middle, coming up with a deal that satisfies both sides? It’s certainly in the best interests of both to do so. As far as salary cap implications go, the Giants would have some work to do in order to make the first year of the kind of extension Beckham is seeking — $18 million per season is a reasonable starting point and go up from there — but it can be done with some maneuvering. It’s even possible to lower Beckham’s cap hit in 2018 if necessary.
Beckham appears to understand the end game here: The Giants hold all the cards, even if he gets to the point where holding out could be the only way to force the issue. That strategy won’t sit well with Beckham the competitor, and there’s no doubt the brand he has built with Nike and others and his pop star popularity are far greater when he can show off his remarkable talent on the field.
Plus, Beckham will never hit the market if the Giants want to prevent that from happening because they can use the franchise tag for, at the very least, the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
There will be a time when a line may get drawn in the sand, but that time isn’t now.
