Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians was asked about the possibility that LB Kendell Beckwith never plays again.
“You hate to see guys lose their career[s] off the field,” Arians said, per Jenna Laine. “For Kendell, he was a bright prospect and it’s just unfortunate. You have to move on. For me, I was never really counting on him coming back. I was hoping, but that’s one of the reasons Devin [White] is here.”
- According to the Athletic’s Greg Auman, moving Beckwith to the non-football injury list frees up about $200,000 in cap space.
- Auman says if the Buccaneers elect to cut Beckwith at some point, they would take a $350,000 cap hit as his prorated bonus accelerates.
Chargers QB Philip Rivers says he’s “at peace” no matter what happens or doesn’t happen with his extension this summer.
“If the extension is what works best for both of us and that’s how it plays out, then great,” River said via XTRA 1360. “If not, shoot, let’s go have a heck of a 2019 and then we’ll worry about 2020 when we need to worry about it. I say that with every intention of being the quarterback in 2020 here. It’s not for any reason other than, hey, I signed up for this many years and this year is the last year running and let’s go if that’s what’s best. I really do feel at peace about it and feel good.”
