Geno Smith was ... not splendid ... during his tenure with the Jets, but I guess I can kinda sorta see how the Giants would want to evaluate him and rookie Davis Webb with the rest of this lost season. While the move has been in the works for some time as the Giants struggled this season, it was still a hard moment for Eli when the news became official. Read More »

perth_map

He is likely at least interested in what possible teams would have a pick at the top of the draft. This is being written as refuting a report, but the initial comment from Albert Breer was twisted. "I've never said anything bad about [an NFL] team". So, again, there isn't actually a rumor about him not wanting to play for the Browns. That's not true, Darnold says. Read More »

Whereas Marvin Bagley was the driving force behind Friday's late surge to thwart the Longhorns' upset bid, the prized freshman forward wasn't so much of a one-man show on Sunday against the Gators.

However, Reid said after the game he isn't giving up on Smith, and apparently he hasn't changed his mind - yet. However, Tre'Davious White intercepted Smith's pass with a minute remaining to seal the victory for the Bills.
