NFL training camps are about to open, so we’re getting in a football segment before The WISE Guys radio show goes on a two-week break while Pat Ryan takes a vacation. (We’ll still do our regular baseball update next Monday.)
When we return, we’ll get to talk about more on-field, actual football stuff. Until then, however, much of the offseason chatter still concerns Deshaun Watson’s pending suspension for sexual misconduct allegations and Jimmy Garoppolo trade rumors. We also cover the Buccaneers finding a replacement for Rob Gronkowski and sad news on former Steelers receiver Charles Johnson.
Deshaun Watson has been facing trouble for quite a while with 24 civil lawsuits (20 now settled) and a likely season-long suspension from the NFL. But his former team, the Houston Texans, might still have to answer for enabling the sexual misconduct allegations resulting from his “massages.”
On WISE Sports Radio, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss the Texans getting sued, Baker Mayfield saying he and the Cleveland Browns have moved on, and Washington Commanders receiver Terry McLaurin getting a top-10 salary for his position.
The NFL offseason is charging toward the annual player selection meeting (also known as the NFL Draft). But until then, Deshaun Watson’s sexual misconduct allegations will continue to be a topic.
On this week’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we discuss what a Texas judge says Watson must do next. The Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints make an intriguing trade of draft picks. The Buffalo Bills extend their relationship with wide receiver Stefon Diggs. And some baseball talk involving the Atlanta Braves gets snuck in there at the end.
