- ESPN’s Dan Graziano expects Bills QB Josh Allen to wait for Ravens QB Lamar Jackson to sign and then slot in right behind him, as Jackson has an MVP trophy to his name.
- He adds he thinks both deals will end up between Cowboys QB Dak Prescott‘s $40 million a year and Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes‘ $45 million a year.
Dolphins’ owner Stephen Ross believes the organization is “two-thirds of the way” to competing for a Super Bowl.
“We want to do as much with the community as we possibly can, we want to be the best in class in the NFL, and we want to win the Super Bowl. Well, I think we are two-thirds of the way there, and the rest, I hope we are hoisting the Super Bowl in a very short time, with the emphasis on short,” said Ross, via Adam Beasley of ProFootballNetwork.
Ross thinks they are hammering away the “small details” to creating a consistently successful franchise after finishing its new practice facility outside Hard Rock Stadium.
“It takes all these small details when putting together a great organization, that will be used to winning and winning often. If you can’t win with a facility like this, then you never will.”
Ross added that the “pressure is on” for HC Brian Flores and GM Chris Grier to produce a winning team.
“We got a lot of input from Chris Grier and Brian Flores, but now the pressure is on them. We delivered guys.”
Former Patriots S Patrick Chung said his conversation with HC Bill Belichick about retiring was difficult.
“I just went and talked to Bill [Belichick]. That was probably the hardest conversation I’ve had in a while. I respect him. He respects me. It’s more than player to coach with me and Bill,” Chung said, vie ESPN’s Mike Reiss. “I felt like I was letting him down, but it was something I had to do for my family and me.”
