Also, breakfast tacos are a game-changer. I need more of these in my life, and I’m not talking about the abomination Taco Bell rolled out, where the shell is a fried egg.
So there is still no resolution to Bryant’s status, though something could be resolved soon, considering the team starts the off-season program April 16.
There is no question the Cowboys at least want Bryant to take a pay cut from his $12.5 million salary for 2018.
So the Cowboys wouldn’t want to risk Bryant suffering an injury working out with the team, thus guaranteeing his 2018 salary.
The contract and his declining numbers are a huge part of the discussion that Jones plans to have with him.
Also, having the situation linger much longer is not good on anyone and certainly wouldn’t foster the right environment to start off-season workouts.
As for your football question, I could see the Lions trading down in the first round to pick up another pick or two. The team is tied for the fewest selections entering the draft and Quinn has said he’d like to add more selections. To project a trading partner now is difficult, because you have to know how the first 19 picks are going to play out, and whether the team feels they can still get a player they want with a lower pick.
I would definitely keep my eye on the Patriots at No. 23, though. Quinn has made a few trades with his former employer, that’s a modest drop, and there are rumblings New England might have an eye on a QB. I could see them pushing forward a few spots to secure a guy like Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph.
As a rookie, Jake Rudock was cut before the start of the season and went unclaimed on waivers. He then spent 11 weeks on the practice squad, free to be poached by another franchise at any time. The Bears finally made overtures and the Lions cleared a spot on the main roster for the young QB. That’s a decent reflection of Rudock’s value around the league.
