Dez Bryant calls out Cowboys’ coaching staff for handling of his release

Dez Bryant was released by the Cowboys on Friday after spending all eight seasons of his NFL career in Dallas, and it didn’t take long for the Pro Bowl receiver to share his thoughts on the situation.

“I won’t put no names out, but they know and I want them to know: I know,” Bryant said. “I’ll shoot them a text message and let them know. Little do they know is, you know, they can wear that ‘C’ all they want to, but in that locker room, they know they run and they talk to.

“They know who they communicate with. Everybody knows where the real love is at. I’m not throwing anybody under the bus, but that’s the difference between me and them.”

Bryant added it was an “unfair situation” that left him surprised. The receiver, who was set to earn $12.5 million next season, also revealed he was willing to accept a pay cut, but that wasn’t open for discussion during his meeting with owner Jerry Jones.

“Mr. Kelly was discharged from the hospital today after an extremely favorable recovery,” Dr. Mark Urken, who treated Kelly, told ESPN. “The speed of that process, considering the extensive nature of his surgery, was a function of his toughness, the firmness of his resolve, his faith and the support of his family. All of those factors will continue to serve him well as he moves on to the next phase of his rehabilitation.”

Kelly was diagnosed with cancer in June 2013 but a biopsy in July 2016 revealed he was cancer-free. However, he revealed last month that the disease had returned and underwent a 12-hour procedure March 28 to remove the cancer and reconstruct his upper jaw.

Kelly’s wife, Jill, took to Instagram to share an update on her husband’s progress, confirming he had been released and adding that he will continue his rehabilitation in New York for two more weeks before returning home to Buffalo.seahawks_131

Cameron Meredith signs 2-year deal with Saints after Bears decline offer sheet

The Saints gained another weapon for Drew Brees Wednesday by signing wide receiver Cameron Meredith to a two-year contract worth $9.6 million.

Meredith, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, was a restricted free agent this offseason, meaning the Bears had until Wednesday to match New Orleans’ offer. They declined, which meant the 25-year-old playmaker was free to join the Saints.

In 2016, Meredith hauled in 66 receptions for 888 yards and four touchdowns. He was expected to become one of the breakout receivers last year before suffering his serious knee injury.

Kraft’s trip, for all the wisecracks it inspired (after all, the Eagles team that beat his in the Super Bowl took the field in Minneapolis to a Meek Mill song), is an encouraging outgrowth of the players’ activism.

The owners, then, hear what the players are talking about. They get it. They’re not in the dark, confused, misinformed or distracted about the players’ issues and causes or about the motivations for their actions.

When Kraft stood with 76ers minority owner Michael Rubin and spoke to reporters Tuesday (as recorded by NBC Philadelphia), Kraft credited the players with helping steer him on the path that eventually put him on the prison steps.

“I guess for me — I know some of our players in the NFL have talked about this (issue), and I see it first-hand that it’s just wrong, and we have to find a way to correct it and to help the community help themselves …” He paused, and added, “It’s just sad.”

Quarterback: Before Garoppolo was moved, so was Jacoby Brissett. Behind Brady, there is only Brian Hoyer. With Brady turning 41 in August, the team needs to add a developmental prospect somewhere in the draft.seahawks_009

Report: Landon Collins May Undergo Another Surgery on Arm Injury, Miss 6-8 Weeks

New York Giants safety Landon Collins could miss another six to eight weeks with his arm injury reportedly failing to heal as expected, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

He also has seven interceptions, four sacks, three fumble recoveries in this span, leading to two Pro Bowl selections. He was named first-team All-Pro in 2016.

The Giants struggled with health and consistency last season, finishing 4-12 with the defense ranking 31st in the NFL in points allowed. Ensuring Collins is healthy for the start of the regular season would go a long way toward turning things around in 2018.

Fuller had an exceptional season in Washington playing from the slot off Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland. He’s far from an afterthought in the trade with the Redskins, as Fuller is just scratching the surface as a dynamic playmaker and can match the impact Marcus Peters had outside.

Peters is still pretty darn good himself. Even though he gambles in coverage and can give up some big plays, he still can make a ton of them. Having a stable secondary around him (Lamarcus Joyner, Aqib Tailb, Nickell Robey-Coleman) will allow Peters to be aggressive as a back-end ballhawk for Wade Phillips’ blitzing defense.

That includes the Giants, who hold the second overall pick and could be looking for Eli Manning‘s eventual successor under center. According to multiple reports, the team will be hosting Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen over the next week or so as they do their final research before the first round gets underway in Dallas.

The Giants have resisted notions that they are locked into taking a quarterback and the door could be open to a trade if they get a compelling offer from a team trying to leapfrog the Jets, who are in the third spot after making their own trade with the Colts.

Staying put to draft a player at a different position is also a possibility, of course, and Dianna Russini of ESPN reports that running back Saquon Barkley is set to visit the team on Sunday. Barkley could also be in play if the Giants drop down the board before the second pick is handed in on April 27.la_kings_009
