"Everybody tells me it’s Joe Douglas," Lombardi said. "I mean, look, Joe Douglas — he’s going to have options. Well, Joe Douglas wants to leave Philly. I don’t think Joe Douglas is really that comfortable in Philadelphia in this current setup. The Eagles are going really extensively — they hired [vice president of football operations] Andrew Berry. They’re going to go really with the analytics."
WASHINGTON—Reminding players that failing to report to training camp was a high-risk move with no guarantee of success, the National Football League Players Association released a statement Friday warning holdouts that they might end up having to sign with the New York Jets. “We understand you want a better contract, but you have to weigh that desire against the very real chance you will eventually be forced to sign with the Jets,” said NFLPA president Eric Winston, reminding players to consider those worst-case scenarios when leveraging potential suitors against their current teams. “Obviously, we support our players getting the money they deserve, but before you sit out week 1, just imagine having to see your family in Jets gear. Remember, this is still a negotiation and you shouldn’t overplay your hand. It’s our job to look out for your best interests and to let you know that you’re in danger of spending the prime of your career going 4-12 for an unforgiving fanbase.”
The Vikings are hopeless at developing young kickers. They lack patience and expect immediate and clear results at a position where it's hard to forecast future performance. (the data shows much randomness )Very hyped to land Vedvik, think he could be a long term solution at K (if not K & P), so long as the Vikings era wasn't more than just a blip.
He was 11/12 on FG for Ravens, longs of 56, 55, 48.....11/11 on XP.....huge gross average on punts as well.
