The NFL recently began clamping down on teams posting highlights on their social media accounts during the game, which has drawn the ire of at least a few teams.
Kraft happens to be the chairman of the NFL’s digital media committee and has been a driving force behind the NFL’s decision to stop teams from posting highlight on social media during games, according to La Canfora.
Jones, on the hand, believes that what happens during a game is team-generated content and wants the rules to be relaxed.
Sources tell La Canfora that the argument between the two got so testy that Kraft had to leave the room.
- Matt Miller of B/R has questions about Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers playing cornerback in the NFL and thinks his best position would likely be at free safety.
- A scout tells Miller that Pepper’s best position in the NFL could actually be at running back.
- The Chicago Bears announced that G Kyle Long, NT Eddie Goldman and WR Eddie Royal are all doubtful for Monday’s game against the Vikings.
- Ben Volin of the Boston Globe writes that the Patriots recent decision to trade for Lions LB Kyle Van Noy earlier in the week could be seen as another attempt by New England to protect themselves against possible free agent losses next year.
- Volin points out that the Pats now have Van Noy, Shea McClellin, Rob Nickovich and Jonathan Freeny all under contract through at least 2017 in case they lose Dont’a Hightower and/or Jamie Collins.
- Beyond that, New England also brought in Eric Rowe in a trade with the Eagles, who could protect them in the event they can’t keep both of Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan.
- The Vikings officially ruled out RB Jerick McKinnon, S Andrew Sendejo, DT Sharrif Floyd, and G Zac Kerin for Monday’s game.
