Will Tony Romo replace Broncos QB Trevor Siemian?

  • Night net null null The Cowboys are set at quarterback with rookie Dak Prescott leading them to nine straight wins, so now they need to find something to do with Tony Romo. Sure, he's a valuable backup to have around, but with his contract, it doesn't make sense to keep him.According to Night net Media, Romo "has eyes on the Broncos" as a team he wants to play for. They have a great defense, great playmakers on offense and it's a logical destination if Denver wants to hold off on Paxton Lynch and doesn't view Trevor Siemian as a long-term option. MORE: Best quotes from Week 11Siemian, who is still starting for Denver, was asked about these rumors on Monday, and had a reasonable response. “That’s so far out of my reach," Siemian said, via 9News. “That’s way beyond my pay grade."I wonder if John Elway watched Romo news conference and thought, “He’d make a nice starter in 2017 while also mentoring Siemian and Lynch."— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) November 15, 2016As for the rumor itself, 9News' Mike Klis said it's unlikely the team makes a move for Romo.If the Broncos don't work out for Romo, Night net夜网论坛 Media reports the veteran quarterback would also be interested in the Bears, Jets, Cardinals and Bills.[......]

    Raiders losses starting to feel like the new norm in 2017

  • Night net null null Each Raiders loss has felt like an exception, because they started this season 2-0, and the second win was such a blowout, Marshawn Lynch was dancing on the sideline. Those seemed like the real Raiders, the Super Bowl contenders, the team that would pick up where it left off last year.However, Sunday’s 17-16 loss in Oakland to the Chargers seemed like the new norm, and that rout of the Jets four weeks earlier looks more like the exception. The four straight defeats have looked too much alike, the weaknesses too obvious, the underachieving too commonplace. And now the Raiders are short on time to fix it before the slide gets longer. The 5-1 Chiefs play in Oakland on Thursday night, meaning unless the Raiders figure things out fast, a 2-5 record and a five-game losing streak will get here before they know it. They'll be in last place in the AFC West, still just in October, but with November not all that far away.MORE: Raiders falling out of playoff picture Among other problems, Derek Carr gets limited time to recover after his fast return from broken bones in his back; he missed just one game. He told reporters after Sunday's loss he felt fine. His play didn't reflect that, but in his defense, the whole offense didn[......]

    Fantasy ADP Updates: Adrian Peterson, Keelan Cole, more shake up fantasy rankings

  • Night net null If you haven't already held your fantasy football draft, the time is coming soon. And as smart as it is to wait as long as possible before drafting, putting it off can also lead to confusion from late-rising sleepers and injuries. We'll be looking at some of those late risers in the rankings, like Adrian Peterson and Keelan Cole, in our final ADP report, but please note that these numbers will change even by the time you hold your draft, be it this weekend or tonight.The NFFC ADP column in the spreadsheet below applies to season-long leagues. The RTSports column is for best-ball leagues. So, let’s get into it, talking some trends in the average draft position of some noteworthy fantasy assets. This week, it’s wide receivers aplenty!  MORE FANTASY ALARM: 2018 Draft KitWhen should Adrian Peterson be drafted?When Peterson signed with the Redskins, it was unclear exactly what his role in the offense would be. Some thought he might take over as the starter while others thought he could be a roster cut. After a solid showing in the third preseason game, he appears to have locked down a roster spot, but his role still isn't defined right now. So, it's been hard to peg his value. Peterson is definitely worth a pick, but the big question is, when should that be? While the big board at the bottom of this piece has Pet[......]

    Antonio Brown rejected $2M settlement with sexual assault accuser

  • Night net null null Antonio Brown rejected a $2 million-plus settlement with the woman who has accused him of sexually assaulting her, ESPN reported, citing unidentified sources.According to the report, Brown had a deadline last Sunday to sign the agreement to pay his former trainer, Britney Taylor, the $2 million in a private settlement. Brown never signed the agreement, which prompted the civil suit to be filed on Tuesday. His decision not to sign the agreement came one day before the Patriots signed him to the team after he had been released from the Raiders due to multiple preseason issues.Reportedly, the negotiations between Taylor and Brown began as e夜网论坛arly as April and included two mediations. According to Taylor's filing, Brown sexually assaulted her twice and raped her once between 2017 and 2018. The Night net is set to meet Taylor this week and will meet with Brown, as well, according to reports. Brown nor his representatives are expected to be at the meeting with Taylor.At this point, the Night net hasn't handed a punishment down to Brown, mainly because the suit is civil and not criminal, per reports. However, the league could still suspend him should they find that he violated any league rules. Related News[......]

    The Geno Smith coin toss conspiracy is the dumbest thing in Seahawks' win over 49ers

  • Night net null null null Geno Smith is involved in a controversy over whether he said "heads" or "tails" during the overtime coin flip in the Seahawks' win over the 49ers on "Monday Night Football."But the "controversy" only exists because there's a poorly recorded video of the call in question.

    Breaking down Tua Tagovailoa's first Night net start: Dolphins rookie takes it easy vs. Rams for first win

  • Night net Dolphins Rams American Football Tua Tagovailoa's Night net debut as the Dolphins' rookie first-round quarterback started off in disaster. It ended with an easy day at the office, resulting in the first victory of many to come in his pro career.Tagovailoa was strip-sacked on his first dropback — and Miami's second offensive snap — in Sunday's surprise 28-17 win over the Rams. He was quickly introduced to Aaron Donald, the league's best defensive player, who rattled him and forced a fumble. Instead of going downhill from the夜网论坛re, Tagovailoa, the No. 5 overall pick out of Alabama, got a huge break with shutdown cornerback Jalen Ramsey not playing because of illness. Tagovailoa got bigger breaks, with the Dolphins' defense and special teams combining for two touchdowns and setting up another from the 1-yard line.With a big 28-7 second-quarter lead, Tagovailoa wasn't called upon to do much. That Donald hit was the only sack he took, and he finished 12 of 22 for only 93 yards a touchdown.
