Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham Jr. work out in video
Dez Bryant is campaigning hard to try to end up in his preferred landing spot in free agency.
Less than 24 hours after the Giants released wideout Brandon Marshall, Bryant posted a video on Instragram of himself working out with the team’s No. 1 receiver: Odell Beckham Jr.
Since being cut by the Cowboys, the veteran wideout has expressed his feelings on wanting to stay in the NFC East so he could have the chance to face his former team twice a year.
Many in the industry believe Beckham would be unwise to show up on his current contract and risk injury. Of course, Beckham is already injured, or, more exactly, was already injured, and is rehabbing a fractured left ankle suffered in Week 5 last season. Beckham needs to make a positive impression on Gettleman and new head coach Pat Shurmur and staying away or issuing thinly veiled threats is not the way to do it.
Despite the Week 1 goal, Wentz won’t push to return before his body is ready.
I’m just going stay the course; you’ve seen the horror stories of people coming back too soon … so I can assure you I’ll be smart about it, he said.
If he’s unable to play by the season opener, the Eagles still have Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles waiting in the wings to fill the gap.
Carson Wentz is just over four months removed from tearing his left ACL and LCL . Despite the normal 9-12 month recovery period, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback continues to strive to be ready for the Super Bowl champ’s kickoff game in early September.
Yeah, that’s still the goal, Wentz said Tuesday of being ready by Week 1.
Neither team got much offensive traction in the first two periods, but the physical tone of the series stuck. Erik Haula butt-ended Kopitar in the face after a cross-check, but went unpenalized.
We get a guy (Doughty) suspended for making a hockey play, Stevens said. (Haula) butt-ends one of the best players in the world in the face with the butt-end of his stick, so if I was confused before, I’m bewildered now. That’s an intent-to-injure play.
