You never thought you’d hear somebody compare Eli Manning to LeBron James and yet, here we are.
Monday, on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football, Giants defensive tackle Damon Harrison (whose beautiful nickname is Snacks), compared his quarterback to the NBA’s best player, but not in the way that you’d expect.
Veach got his start in the NFL a decade ago with Andy Reid and the Eagles. He’s been considered a top candidate to replace Dorsey for some time now. He started working for the Chiefs in 2013, coming over with Reid.
When the team announced it was parting ways with Dorsey, team owner Clark Hunt said, I notified John that we would not be extending his contract beyond the 2017 season and, after some consideration, both John and I felt it was in his best interests and the best interests of the team to part ways now.
A subsequent report from the Kansas City Star’s Terez Paylor revealed that Dorsey’s communication and management styles were reasons for the Chiefs’ decision. Paylor spoke with several sources inside the organization who said that Dorsey’s approach to leadership rubbed some people the wrong way.
The Ravens reloaded their defense with a handful of high-ceiling picks, including two outside linebackers who have All-Pro potential. Houston’s Tyus Bowser and Alabama’s Williams each starred on successful college teams and should put up significant numbers in their first season in the NFL that is, as long as they don’t cancel each other out on the Baltimore depth chart.
Allen was another major draft discount, as lingering shoulder issues forced the disruptive Alabama lineman to slide all the way to No. 17. Allen’s flexibility in the trenches and ability to get to the quarterback from anywhere he had 22.5 sacks his final two seasons with the Tide will make him a valuable asset in the NFL, as long as he can stay healthy.
