Coby Fleener never worked out as hoped.
Expecting him to replace Jimmy Graham in the offense was never going to happen, not as a one-to-one replacement, but it looked like he had the skills and talent to flourish in an offense that habitually makes tight ends flourish when he signed a five-year, $36 million contract with the Saints in 2016. But it never happened. There were flashes, moments and drives where it looked like it clicked, but it never locked into place.
Angela M. Mannarino, lawyer for the defendants, wouldn’t specify an amount in damages being sought by Richardson, who is black, and Yanagi, who is of Japanese descent. She told The News she is waiting on an official response from the Lions and the NFL, both of whom have requested brief extensions.
The Lions issued a statement Tuesday afternoon. It read: We are aware of the report. Because the report involves ongoing litigation, it would be inappropriate for us to comment at this time.
The team distributes iPads that serve as a de facto playbook. The Bears were able to wipe the iPad of all the playbook information once they learned of the theft.
According to Athens-Clarke County (Ga.) public information officer Epifanio Rodriguez, Smith called the police department at 11:45 a.m. Saturday to report that items from his 2018 BMW X5 had been stolen.
But we don’t care about any of that in fantasy. In the fantasy realm, it’s all about opportunity and with Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall both hurt ( Sterling Shepard also missed five games due to injury), Engram drew more targets than every tight end except for Travis Kelce. That was enough to propel Engram into the TE1 ranks while also cementing his status as a staple of DFS lineups. It’s hard to judge Gesicki when we haven’t seen him play an NFL snap yet, but I agree that he’ll be someone to monitor in upcoming drafts.
Gesicki didn’t block a lick at Penn State but he was one of the better receiving tight ends in college football, corralling 51 passes for 501 yards and nine touchdowns this past season.
