Jones and Graham together snap after snap would cause a matchup nightmare for defenses. It wouldn’t hurt that Graham would be back doing damage in the NFC South, this time twice against the Saints.
Last but not least is the team for which Graham played first. The Saints do need tight end help, but they might prefer to get it with the long term in mind via the draft. They are sitting on more than $32 million of cap space, and there’s no question Graham would still fit in their offense with Brees and Sean Payton.
What are people saying about Gronk’s status? While Gronkowski is off limits to the media, his teammates are fielding plenty of questions about whether or not the tight end will play against the Eagles on Sunday.
“It’s always great to have him out there,” Tom Brady said after Saturday’s practice, via Reiss. “He’s a great player, great person, great teammate and a big part of what we do. So it obviously hurts when he’s not out there for a lot of reasons, but he’s doing the best he can do, and we’re all hopeful.”
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said Tuesday that the Patriots are “optimistic” Gronkowski will be able to play against the Eagles.
Fans should also expect to hear some of his new music. After a bit of a hiatus, Timberlake has been back in the studio, recording and releasing his fifth solo album Man of the Woods, available just ahead of his halftime performance, Feb. 2. The first two songs from the new album have already dropped on the radio, “Filthy” and a duet with Chris Stapleton, “Say Something”, and will likely be performed.
Timberlake will follow-up his Super Bowl-headlining performance with his Man of the Woods tour, kicking off in Toronto March 13.
Faulk had rushed for at least 1,300 yards the four seasons before being on Madden 03. During that season, he rushed for 953 yards. That isn’t terrible, but he only started 10 games, and it was definitely a downtick. He was never the same.
Arguably the greatest Madden player ever created, the downside of this was the fractured fibula Vick suffered that season. He ended up missing 11 games as the Falcons fell to a 5-11 season, going 2-10 without Vick.
