Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry has yet to physically sign his $15.9 million franchise tender. Some have suggested that his failure to do so could mean that he won’t. Which could mean that the Dolphins could rescind it.
That won’t be happening.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Landry has formally accepted the tender, regardless of whether he has physically added his signature to the bottom of the offer. (He hasn’t signed it, per the source.) As a result, the Dolphins consider it to be accepted, making the $15.9 million offer fully guaranteed and (perhaps more importantly) allowing the contract to be traded.
“I think the [pay cut] number was part of it, but also the conversation I had in the meeting,” Nelson said. “I met with Brian and had a discussion because I had to get a feel for not just the pay cut but what their plans were going forward. After that meeting, there wasn’t, I don’t think, much desire there. I think with the combination of both, we decided what was best for myself and my family [just] as they decided what was best for them and the Packers .”
The Vikings have opted to keep Kevin McDermott as their long snapper as he is progressing well from shoulder surgery, via Tomasson.
Overbaugh replaced the injured McDermott in Week 17 and ed both postseason games. Those are the only career games Overbaugh has ed.
McDermott has spent the past three seasons as the team’s long snapper.
Former New York Giants linebacker and Montana State star Corey Widmer has declined his nomination to the Montana Football Hall of Fame, saying the sport “destroyed my life.”
Widmer said after numerous concussions he fears he suffers from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease. He has depression, memory problems, suffers from mood swings and seeks to isolate himself. Recently, he said, his thumb has started twitching.
