CB Prince Amukamara has deal with Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals have an agreement in place to sign free-agent cornerback Prince Amukamara pending the results of his COVID-19 testing, a source told ESPN’s Dan Graziano. It’s not likely Amukamara, who lives in the Phoenix area, will join the team for this weekend’s match in New York versus the Jets, but he potentially could play in Arizona’s Week 6 game on Monday Night Football at the Dallas Cowboys. The veteran cornerback will give the Cardinals depth as Dre Kirkpatrick, whom the Cardinals’ signed on Aug. 23 in the aftermath of Robert Alford’s season-ending pec injury, deals with a calf injury. He has been limited in practice the […]

Tom Brady leads Tampa Bay Buccaneers to big comeback

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady overcame a first-half pick-six and a 17-point deficit to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers  38-31 on Sunday, giving him the fifth-largest comeback in his career. It also was the Bucs’ second-largest comeback in franchise history, behind a 21-point rally versus the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008. For the 43-year-old Brady, it was his biggest comeback since overcoming a 28-3 deficit in Super Bowl LI versus the Atlanta Falcons — a setting that was a far cry from the select group of 6,383 fans and family members who got their first glimpse of Brady in person this campaign. He finished 30-of-46 for 369 passing yards, […]

Chicago Bears’ Nick Foles to be starter QB, Tarik Cohen has torn ACL

Nick Foles will be the starter at quarterback for now on after he rallied the Chicago Bears to a comeback triumph over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday in relief of Mitchell Trubisky. The announcement was made by coach Matt Nagy, who also said tests confirmed that running back Tarik Cohen has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the campaign. Nagy benched Trubisky in favor of Foles with Chicago trailing by 16 points in the third quarter. Foles responded by throwing three second-half touchdown passes, including the game-winning 28-yard strike to wide receiver Anthony Miller just after the two-minute warning. Foles also had touchdown passes to Allen Robinson and Jimmy Graham. […]

New York Jets trade Jamal Adams to Seattle Seahawks

One of the Seahawks’ goals heading into 2020 was to improve a defense that didn’t live up to expectations last campaign, and on Saturday they made a big move to improve on that side of the ball, acquiring All-Pro and Pro-Bowl safety Jamal Adams in a trade with the New York Jets, pending physicals. To obtain one of the game’s top defensive players, the Seahawks are sending to the Jets first and third-round picks in next year’s draft, a first-rounder in 2022, and safety Bradley McDougald. The Jets are sending a 2022 fourth-round pick to Seattle in addition to Adams, […]

Bucs pass-rusher Shaq Barrett accepts franchise tender, files designation grievance

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have Shaquil Barrett in 2020, but it’s uncertain how much the team will pay him. Barrett informed the club he would accept the franchise tag Friday, but filed a grievance over the Bucs tagging him as a linebacker instead of a defensive end. Barrett, 27, has $2 million in reasons for filing that grievance, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. That’s how much extra money Barrett would have made had the Bucs designated him as a defensive end. Players who accept the franchise tag are paid based on the top-5 highest-paid players at their position. Franchised defensive ends are expected […]

The incentive-laden deal is […]

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa not giving up on playing again despite career-threatening neck injury

New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, fighting a career-threatening neck injury that will keep him off the field in 2020, still hopes to play again one day. But that decision, he said, no longer is in his control. In an interview with ESPN, Enunwa stated Wednesday it was “devastating” to learn recently he had been ruled out for the season. Now, he said, the only thing he can do is play the waiting game. “If I’m capable of playing, then that’s what I’ll do,” he said, making his first public comments since the end of the campaign. “If it comes down […]

Jets signing Joe Flacco to one year deal

Less than a month after undergoing a neck procedure, Joe Flacco has found employment. Flacco has agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Jets, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported. The deal will pay Flacco $1.5 million and includes another $3 million in incentives, Garafolo added. Flacco underwent a 45-minute disc repair in early April, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported in early May. He’s on schedule to be cleared sometime between late August to mid-September, Pelissero added at the time. Flacco spent 2019 in Denver, where he was acquired via trade to be the starter but suffered a neck injury […]

Marqise Lee embracing new opportunity with Patriots

Two years after signing a four-year, $38 million contract extension with the Jacksonville Jaguars, wide receiver Marqise Lee finds himself in a much different place as he hopes to revitalize his career. He’s at the bottom with the New England Patriots — and embracing it. Lee, who was selected in the second round of the 2014 draft by the Jaguars and was released in April, was signed by the Patriots to a one-year contract with $300,000 guaranteed. He said he has landed in the right spot to put his past two injury-filled seasons behind him. The 6-foot, 196-pound Lee missed the 2018 season because of […]
