Buccaneers LT Donovan Smith let it be known that he’s worried about the safety of himself and his family if he goes into a camp environment in one of the country’s hotspots.
“With the start of the 2020 NFL season fast approaching, many thoughts and questions roam my mind as I’m sure it does for many of my fellow ‘coworkers’ across the league,” Smith wrote on social media, via ProFootballTalk. “The unfortunate events of the COVID-19 pandemic have put a halt to a lot of things. Football is not one. To continue discussing the many UNKNOWNS do not give me the comfort. Risking my health as well as my family’s health does not seem like a risk worth taking.”
- According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94 WIP SportsRadio, a trade for 49ers RB Raheem Mostert would require a new contract and Mostert is reportedly looking to be paid along the lines of RB Tevin Coleman, who received a two-year, $8.5 million deal last offseason.
- Shorr-Parks adds that while Mostert is a solid player, the Eagles already have Miles Sanders and Boston Scott, who are both young and dynamic.
- It is important to note that Sanders, in one season, already has more carries than Mostert has had since 2015. This leaves Shorr-Parks wondering if Mostert could carry the load if Sanders were to be injured or if he can duplicate what he did in San Francisco with another team.
- Matt Schneidman of The Athletic lists ten Packers players to watch out for during training camp, including WR Reggie Begelton, LB Curtis Bolton, DL Treyvon Hester, TE James Looney, OL Cole Madison, LB Randy Ramsey, CB Stanford Samuels, WR Equanimeous St. Brown, CB Chandon Sullivan, and G Lane Taylor.
- Of these players, both Sullivan and Taylor have the chance to earn starting positions at nickel cornerback and right guard by continuing to prove themselves this offseason.
