They have it broken down on our [tablets], so when you look at the motion list, it’s so many different motions that you can do. It’ll be good getting a lot of our playmakers moving around.

Sun Jun 26, 2022 --from FFMastermind.com

The Wall Street Journal reports the NFL will push for an indefinite suspension lasting at least one year for Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson, and won’t accept a resolved suspension less than one season, at a minimum. This could change once the two sides start presenting evidence and arguments and, more importantly, when Judge Sue L. Robinson starts making remarks and/or decisions that may reveal her views regarding the case. The most important wrinkle likely will be whether and to what extent she allows Watson and the NFL Players Association to pursue the idea that discipline of any player must be proportional to discipline imposed on owners who have potentially violated the Personal Conduct Policy.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the man whom Kamara allegedly beat up in Las Vegas will be suing Kamara for financial damages as result of the incident. It’s no surprise.

-- Why Rob Gronkowski Really Retired And... --
Thu Jun 23, 2022 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports agent Drew Rosenhaus says he believes retired TE Rob Gronkowski will be back, this season or next season. The guess is that Gronk won’t be back at the outset of 2022 training camp in part (if not completely) because of the financial offers the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made. For 2021, Gronkowski had base pay of $8 million with incentives of up to $2 million. For 2022, given the dramatic increase in the receiver market, Gronkowski shouldn’t show up for less than $15 million. If he decides to take less for a limited run, assuming the Bucs are contenders, so be it. But why should he sign up for a full season if he’s not getting what he’s truly worth? Finally, it likely wasn’t a mistake that Rosenhaus added the words “next season.” If/when QB Tom Brady jumps to a new team and if, after a year off, Gronk becomes intrigued by the possibility of teaming up with Brady once again in an effort to win a championship with a third different team, maybe he’d do it. Still, the money will need to be right. If it currently were, be’d be playing.
