Cowboys make no secret of their desire to host combine

The Cowboys have hosted the Super Bowl and the NFL Draft at AT&T Stadium. Indianapolis isn’t going to like this, but the Cowboys want a chance to hold the Scouting Combine at their training facility in Frisco.

Yes, I believe we can have the combine here, Cowboys executive vice president Jerry Jones Jr. said, via Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Was that the reason for this to be built? Not at all. But as you sit there and think about what are the possibilities if you do build it, there’s no question that’s on the radar.

Everything you’ve ever heard is, ‘Why Indianapolis?’ Jones said. We all go there, and we know how cold it is. You could pick a nicer place to go as far as that time of year. Here we are in the coldest part of the year, February, doing the Combine and why are we not doing it in LA or Orlando? Well, Indy has the medical facilities around Lucas Oil Stadium. That’s what really impacts it the most.

With this facility right here, it addresses those issues.

Given the way the starting quarterback is playing, Manziel may not get on the field in the CFL any time soon. Tiger-Cats starting quarterback Jeremiah Masoli completed 19-of-29 passes for 332 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception, in a 38-21 win over the Edmonton Eskimos. Tiger-Cats coach June Jones made clear after the game that he’s 100 percent behind Masoli as the starter.

I’ve been saying it and nobody seems to believe me, Jones said. He has been pretty spectacular for as long as I have been here, 12 Cheap Jerseys Basketball games. Jeremiah got out of some trouble and made plays which you need to do in this league. We are lucky to have him.

So while Jones, a former NFL coach, may think Manziel is good enough to play in the NFL, he doesn’t think Manziel is good enough to unseat Masoli. Which Cheap Jerseys Cn means Manziel isn’t going to play as long as Masoli is healthy.

So what will I do in the interim? What I always do: Not work.

Ezekiel Elliott case being NFL’s newest legal quagmire is a deflating thought

Ezekiel Elliott is in limbo, very much the way Tom Brady was once in limbo.

Comparing one example of NFL player discipline to the apparent overreach of another seemed way too premature not long ago. It doesn’t seem like it anymore.

We respect their efforts to use their platform to make some change and express themselves. And I think for all those guys that knelt initially and then last week decided to stand – I won’t get into why they made that decision – I think they are going about it in a very responsible and thoughtful way. I’m actually proud of them.

On which Steelers reached out to him once he signed: “Marcus Cheap Jerseys Basketball Gilbert, then Pouncey, and then AB. All three of them hit me up like back-to-back-to-back.”

On what the first game of the regular season against the Browns means: “Super excited. Our first game is gonna be in Cleveland, so it’s gonna be special.”

On if he expects a few passes to be thrown his way: “Oh, for sure. For sure. Oh, definitely. I was there with those guys. They’ve been working hard, working their tails off. I’m gonna be ready, because I know they are.”

On his new jersey number with the Steelers: “I haven’t gotten my number yet. We’re still working on it. I don’t have my number yet. We’ve got some shaking up to do. Hopefully, it will work out. If not 23, it’s gonna be something in the 20s.”

“My heart goes out to him,” Fox said. “He was very disappointed and discouraged Cheap European Soccer Jerseys in the locker room after the game for obvious reasons. Again, our thoughts and prayers go out to him. He was pretty upset about it last night, and they’re doing evaluations right now.”
