Happy Friday, everyone. Before rushing out to get those last-minute Mother’s Day gifts (that’s right, we’re talking to you), here’s a look at what’s on tap for your NFL.com perusal today:
While the Atlanta Falcons gave up a king’s ransom to trade up for Alabama receiver Julio Jones, today’s Data Points takes a look at the numbers for some of the veteran receivers who might be available when free agency begins.
Speaking of Jones… “Just finished watching a highlight film of Julio Jones,” Tony Gonzalez tweeted earlier this week. “If he can carry that over to the NFL….SCARY.” That’s why the Falcons made the trade. Albert Breer spoke in depth with Atlanta GM Thomas Dimitroff about the bold move.
Donovan McNabb and the Cardinals seems like a good fit, given that the veteran QB is available, he lives in Arizona, and Arizona needs a QB. Alas, the Cards reportedly aren’t interested.
In Friday’s debate, NFL.com experts pinpoint some veterans who may have some job insecurity after the draft. We’re looking at you, Reggie Bush.
Should the Eagles trade Kevin Kolb? Here’s one voice that says now is the time.
While NFL.com continues its series grading every team’s draft, will hindsight show that this might have been a mediocre draft all around?
Rashard Mendenhall had an endorsement deal with Champion since his NFL career started in 2008. But after his Osama bin Laden/Twitter flap, Mendenhall has been dropped by the company.
If you hate the tipping of picks in draft coverage, Rich Eisen proposes a cure in his latest podcast.
Tonight on NFL Total Access, Eisen and Warren Sapp continue to talk football with this week’s guest, former Patriot Willie McGinest.
If it’s Friday, then it’s time for NFL.com senior writer Vic Carucci to jump into the chat room. He’ll be here at noon ET, but you can go ahead and submit a question now.
