Whatever form of phrasing fits best, one thing is certain: celebrity sports couples have us cheering them on. While most professional sporting events have been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, the only "game to watch" is how these famous athlete-star pairs are enjoying their downtime. Since lockdown, many have put their relationship and special candid moments together on full display.
Putting pressure on the opposing quarterback is critical to a team’s success in today’s NFL, and there are a number of players still languishing on
Is this the year Seahawks QB Russell Wilson separates himself from the rest of the NFL?
The buzz surrounding Antonio Brown resurrecting his NFL career has ebbed and flowed since the New England Patriots cut him loose amid controversy last season.
The last decade of NFL football has brought us some universally incredible moments. 1. Chip Kelly got Marcus Mariota? The Eagles had the 20th pick in the 2015 draft, following a 10-6 season that left them just out of the playoffs. Jameis Winston was the first player off the board, and there was rampant speculation that Kelly would trade up for the QB who he had coached to a 12-1 record during his freshman year at Oregon.
Bill O'Brien pulled a fast one on Deshaun Watson by taking away DeAndre Hopkins, far and away Watson's favorite target and most dangerous receiving threat. Though bringing in Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb helps to mitigate a portion of that loss, it certainly doesn't provide Watson with a surefire No. WR target week in and week out.
Edit: If the video above does not play, please click “Watch on YouTube” or follow this link. When D.K. Metcalf entered the 2019 NFL Draft, there were many doubts if he was going to be as effective as he was in college. Yes, he had speed, size, and made some truly spectacular catches, but his lack of agility as showcased in his 3-cone time and the fact that he primarily ran three routes - slants, hitches, and fades - deterred teams from taking him in the first round.
The rumor mill was in full production on Wednesday evening when Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was seen working out with former Steelers receiver Antonio Brown. The video was posted on Brown’s private Instagram account with the caption “Who would like to see this on Sundays? This of course set up a new wave of speculation on if the Seahawks are going to be Brown’s next landing spot.
Amadi was among the defenders Adams was able to take advantage multiple times to help carry the Packers into the NFC Championship. Amadi has watched the performance multiple times as he gets ready for training camp to being in a few weeks. Whenever you don’t play well, it’s hard to watch it,” he said.
Other than the three teams that employed Brown last year, the Saints were the other known suitor.
That would, of course, be at defensive tackle, where currently, the Seahawks have six defensive tackles, though three of them have essentially no NFL experience. That group is headlined by Jarran Reed, who had 10.5 sacks in 2018 but had 2 last season after missing the first six games with a suspension. He re-signed as a free agent this offseason.
The Seattle Seahawks losing the NFC West title to the San Francisco 49ers at the 1-inch line may as well be everyone’s #1 by sheer recency bias. Seattle close-shaved its way into potentially getting a first-round bye at the start of Week 17. Other results didn’t go their way, and sure enough the actual game went to San Francisco.
In what can only be considered outrageous ballot stuffing, the Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers is #1, just ahead of the Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, which I’ve decided is the Seahawks vs. 49ers of the AFC. The Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles comes in at 3rd, then you get Seahawks-Niners and then the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos. Here’s the graphic to prove I’m not lying to you.

Before you start reading this article, please take a look at the headshots below. And before you ask, no, these are not the five guys who responded to your Craigslist post about the extra Tim McGraw concert tickets you are trying to sell. These men are actually the projected tight ends for the Seattle Seahawks [...]
These men are actually the projected tight ends for the Seattle Seahawks this season. While they all may look like the frat guys from Theta Alphi Phi, they offer a diverse and intriguing collection of skills that could give Seattle one of the strongest position groups in the entire league for the 2020 season. In a big-picture sense, the tight end position in the NFL is one of the most fascinating across league history.
The video, which was taken in San Diego, shows Brown pulling in a deep toss from Wilson while showing off his route-running skills.
Looking back at the best and worst team hauls in the NFL draft from 2010 to 2019.
There have been rumblings that the Seahawks will look to add another top receiver, and Brown could fill that role. Brown is still awaiting word from the NFL on a possible suspension, however.
It's rare to see a former No. 1 overall pick still available this far into free agency, but Jadeveon Clowney continues to look for a team. Along with Clowney, a three-time Pro Bowl tight end is among the top-end free agents still on the open market.
While nothing of note has come from the teams with which Clowney may be eager to sign, the Browns, Seahawks, Titans and Eagles have been mentioned as interested parties.
According to the report, Clowney isn't willing to offer a club a discount at this stage of the process even though he intends to sign before the season begins.
The problem with this notion is that the two teams Clowney really wants to play for — the Cowboys and Saints — are both in tight salary-cap situations and would need to make room for his salary.
Antonio Brown is on the road to redemption with the hopes of returning to the NFL. While the former All-Pro receiver carries a lot of risks, there seems to be no shortage of suitors if he is allowed to return.
Last year, Clowney registered just three sacks with the Seahawks. That was the lowest healthy-season total of his pro career.
The NFL players union on Sunday criticised unofficial workouts conducted by star quarterbacks Tom Brady and Russell Wilson, saying the practices were risking player safety during the coronavirus crisis. Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Brady and Seattle Seahawks signal-caller Wilson have both faced scrutiny recently after conducting throwing sessions with receivers in the build-up to official pre-season training camps.
Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford and Russell Wilson are still working out with teammates.
As they announce the start of the NFL season for players to report in late July, the schedule becomes something worth looking at. The closer to the season we get the more my eyes wander to games in November and sometimes the gravity of the matchups isn’t fully realized until December. However, with everyone over-analyzing [...]
Former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall had some harsh words for the Green Bay Packers and their roster management around Aaron Rodgers.
The troubled wide receiver is hoping for another NFL chance.
Currently seeking reinstatement, Josh Gordon expects a decision by the NFL prior to the start of the 2020 season.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may be complicating Josh Gordon's potential return due to the inability to schedule drug testing.
The Seattle Seahawks are reportedly interested in bringing in Antonio Brown. Hear why Colin Cowherd thinks the team's pursuit of Brown is from a growing 'fear' of the San Francisco 49ers.
There is no more beautiful sight in football than watching a quarterback receive the snap, drop back in the pocket, survey the field and uncork a bomb deep down the field. The drama of the moment is only increased by the TV angle, cutting off what is going on down the field to keep the [...]
The NFL may suspend Brown for up to half of the 2020 season if he signs with a club this summer.
No red carpet, no nattily dressed athletes, no house band or monologue poking fun at the past year's top athletes and moments.
This was a different version of The ESPYS.
The focus of Sunday night's show on ESPN was hope and inspiration in the time of coronavirus.
NFL quarterback Russell Wilson, along with soccer star Megan Rapinoe and WNBA star Sue Bird, hosted the pre-produced show remotely from their respective homes in Seattle. Each wore Black Lives Matter T-shirts to open the show, and touched on the lives of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, who were killed by police, as well as the life of Ahmaud Arbery. Three men, including a former police officer, are charged in Arbery’s death.
Rapinoe and Bird urged their fellow white athletes to “don't just listen. Help.”
“This is the time we've got to have their backs,” Rapinoe said of Black athletes. Later in the show, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Olympic gold-medal skier Lindsey Vonn were among those calling on white athletes to listen, learn and act.
Wilson, who is Black, added, “Our country's work is not anywhere close to being done.”
Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers received the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage for sparking a national conversation about mental health. Two years ago, he wrote an online essay detailing his struggles with mental health, including having a panic attack during a game. As a result, other athletes and fans began sharing details of their own mental health challenges and sharing resources on how to get help.
Love created the Kevin Love Fund and has continued speaking out. During the COVID-19 crisis, he's shared tips on how to cope with the stress and isolation caused by the pandemic.
At home, Love opened a box with the trophy...
NEW YORK (AP) — NFL players and coaches went home in March and stayed there for the next few months, along with most of the world.
Football pads were replaced by iPads. Handshakes and high-fives gave way to emojis and video chats.
When the coronavirus pandemic forced everyone indoors — away from their everyday environments — creativity was the key. To working. To keeping in touch. And, for those making their living playing on football fields, to thinking up ways to bond as teammates.
So, many played video games. Some held workout challenges. One team had an online cooking competition. Another designed movie posters.
During this time of social distancing, team building went high-tech.
“We have players that are installing defenses and we have Jeopardy games,” said Steve Spagnuolo, the defensive coordinator for the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. “There's all kinds of things that we do to keep each other attentive and amused in some ways in sticking with football and yet getting things done. It's a challenge in this way.”
Team facilities will remain closed to the vast majority of players until training camp, which is scheduled to begin next month. The past few months normally would've been filled with in-person meetings as players and coaches got to know each other. This year, they’ve had to do most of that through computer screens with video meetings, phone calls, remote gym sessions — and whatever else they could come up with.
“You know, I wish more of the O-line played video games,” Baltimore offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley said, “because I’d be totally for it.”
Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone held weekly contests for his team, including a cooking competition last month with judging based solely on appearance and presentation. Wide...
The Seahawks will probably start the year without the safety net of Parkinson, but he should be able to suit up this year.
Parkinson caught 48 passes for 589 yards at Stanford last season. He had 12 total touchdowns in three college seasons.
Gordon featured for the Seattle Seahawks in a handful of games last season until the league indefinitely suspended him halfway through December.
Pete Carroll told reporters on Thursday that somebody within the league linked to a franchise reached out to him about Kaepernick and is interested in signing the QB.
