Following the news that the NFL has suspended Cowboys DE Greg Hardy for his role in the domestic violence case that was settled out of court, Todd Archer mentions that he now stands to make $1.3 million in workout bonuses, a $750,000 base salary, and $3.468 million in roster bonuses.
Archer adds that Hardy’s incentive package likely won’t be in play for him, considering that he would make $500,000 for eight sacks, $1 million for 10 sacks, $1.4 million for 12 sacks, and $1.8 million for 14 sacks.
Hardy has appealed his suspension, so there is a chance that these numbers could increase, depending on whether his ban is eventually reduced.
Albert Breer spoke to five teams on Wednesday regarding Georgia RB Todd Gurley and his progress from knee surgery.
- According to Breer, the unanimous belief is that Gurley has “great shot” to play Week 1.
- Gurley is expected to be back for training camp, as his rehab remains on schedule, per Breer.
During Chargers GM Tom Telesco interview with the NFL Network Wednesday, he was asked about the reports that they could trade QB Philip Rivers to which he replied: “I’m going to leave that go.”
Beyond that, Telesco reiterated that he hopes to have Rivers as the team’s quarterback moving forward.
“There really is no update,” Telesco said, via NFL.com. “It’s the same thing I’ve said for the last four months, Philip’s our quarterback and it’s our plan and intent that he’s our quarterback well into the future.
“In all my discussions with him, he’s shown a great amount of respect for his teammates and a great amount of respect for this organization. He’s been here every day working extremely hard working with his teammates being the leader that he is. … I know he’s really excited about this season, as are we, and we move from there.“
