The Browns agreed to trade defensive tackle Danny Shelton to the New England Patriots , a source informed of the deal told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. In return, the Browns will receive a third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and Cleveland will send a 2018 fifth-rounder to New England, per Rapoport.
The Bills can’t come away without a quarterback from one of their two first-round picks, especially after trading Tyrod Taylor to the Browns. Buffalo now may dip into the free-agent market to buy time for Jackson to develop his passing skills as coordinator Brian Daboll installs an offense tailored to his special speed and athleticism. Coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane while with the Panthers learned how far a team can go with defense, a running game and a mobile QB.
It’s when the kids from Double-A play with the big leaguers, and when we hold our collective breath and hope that not too many of them tear their ligaments in their elbows before the real games begin. It’s when we wonder why there are coaches riding camels in the Nats’ camp .
It’s also when ridiculous claims are made and when everyone’s in the best shape of their lives. Sure enough, both are true of Hanley Ramirez.
Who knows whether Ramirez was being serious when he proclaimed his intent to get back to the 30-30 club. It’s better if he was. Baseball, and all sports, really, are about setting crazy goals and dreaming on them. Hit this round ball with this round bat and make it go a long way. Race some other people on ice skates. Put the ball in the net on the other side of the field, but don’t use your hands. Use big pole to propel yourself over a bar and go as far as possible.
