Bills DT Marcell Dareus, who has signed a massive extension of his own, mentioned during an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio this week that CB Stephon Gilmore needs to remain patient and understand that this is a business.
“He’s got to understand that it’s a business and you’ve got to be patient,” said Dareus, via BuffaloBills.com. “You can’t just be like this or like that. You still have a job. Just do your job and be patient and let things fall as they may.
“My little differences with the team, the back and forth, I had them talk with my agent. I just wanted to be out at practice. I just want to do my thing. Keep me out of the middle of it and only come talk to me when we really have to talk about something. Other than that I was on time, I was working out and getting in shape. I didn’t want any outside distractions. I’m a pro now. I don’t need that. I have an agent. I have a lawyer. When they need to say something to me, they’ll say something to me.”
- Darryl Slater of NJ.com runs down six notable players who will enter Jets’ training camp on the roster bubble.
- To start, Slater has former fourth-round QB Bryce Petty as someone to keep an eye on if the Jets don’t keep four quarterbacks.
- The Jets have veteran K Nick Folk competing for a job with rookie Ross Martin and would pick up about $2.2 million in cap room by moving on from Folk.
- Other players possibly on the roster bubble, according to Slater, are: OLB Trevor Reilly, S Rontez Miles, RB Zac Stacy and FB Tommy Bohanon.
“It’s really just, hopefully, that the Rams get to see what a great person and a great, hard worker I am and, really, just a great person,” Easley said.
Following his release from the Patriots, a report mentioned that Easley was viewed by some as being a “locker-room cancer“, “disrespectful and irresponsible” and “entitled.”
“So, as far as I know, it’s all rumors until that person comes out and says that it’s from them and they can prove that they actually know who I am or have been around me long enough to know who I am and how I am as a person,” said Easley.
