The Dallas Cowboys’ decision to release Pro Bowl wide receiver Dez Bryant earlier in April was not too much of a shock. On the downside of his career, Bryant simply wasn’t worth the cash he was set to be paid.
This doesn’t mean that Bryant’s feelings weren’t hurt. Immediately after his release, the always talkative pass catcher told the Cowboys’ brass that they’ll see him twice per season. It’s a clear indication he plans on signing with an NFC East rival team.
If Bryant was upset about the release itself, one has to wonder how he’ll react to owner Jerry Jones’ most-recent comments.
Conklin broke his foot early in camp last summer, had surgery and missed the first several games before returning to have 28 receptions for 406 yards and five TDs in seven games.
Conklin received an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, then took advantage of it by hauling in Phil McConkey Jersey a 16-yard TD pass from Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, who is expected to be among the top picks in the opening round.
Game Patrick Maroon Jersey I’m really excited, definitely going to enjoy it, having a draft party at home Friday and Saturday in Macomb, Conklin said. My goal was to play basketball, play overseas, but then when I started playing football, made the transition, I felt it was automatically the right move and I felt it was something I could do personally.
I always believed I could be here, just needed to get the opportunity to show what I could do and once I got it I took advantage of it. My agent (Michael Perrett of Element Sports Group) feels I could go in the third or fourth round.
Rees Odhiambo Game Jersey Flowers has stayed away from team workouts as the Giants prepare to open their voluntary veteran minicamp Tuesday.
The Giants signed left tackle Nate Solder in free agency to handle the left tackle duties, presumably shifting Flowers to the right side, if he ended up remaining in New York — which seems unlikely at this stage.
New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur confirmed to reporters that the talented wide receiver was in the team facility Tuesday for the start of voluntary minicamp. Beckham, however, won’t take part in the program since he’s still recovering from surgery to repair the fractured ankle he suffered in October.
Shurmur also told reporters that Beckham absolutely will be part of the Giants in 2018 — a statement that might help further dissolve any lingering speculation about the three-time Pro Bowler being traded this offseason.
He’s an excellent player, he’s part of our team and he’s a very valued member of our team, Shurmur said. Everybody that’s out here, I’m planning on them being here.
While Beckham hasn’t been shy about his desire to catch a long-term deal with the Giants , his appearance at the team facility is yet another goodwill gesture on his part. He also attended the start of the team’s voluntary workout program earlier this month.
