Bullet points: Long-term deal for Davis?


Bullet points: Long-term deal for Davis?

A few quick nuggets to get your Tuesday morning started:--There are eight players eligible for the supplemental draft and one of them, Josh Gordon, was a wide receiver at Baylor with Robert Griffin III. But I wouldnt look for the Redskins to take him. Besides receiver being a very crowded spot already, Gordon was suspended after a drug arrest at Baylor. The Redskins have their fill of that issue and it is doubtful they will add another. Well take a closer look at the others when the draft gets closer.--I was a lot more wishy-washy than I usually am when predicting who will make the team on the offensive line. The last two spots are going to be tough to pick and it may come down to a matter if deciding on potential vs. experience. Things may get more clear when they put the pads on in training camp.--I had a reader ask me about the possibility of signing Nick Collins, the ex-Packers safety who had spinal fusion surgery last fall. Hes a quality player and only 28 but the neck surgery is the obvious issue. They say he has been cleared to play but the Redskins, and many other teams, arent inclined to take the risk. I understand that Collins surgery was done to different vertebrae than was Peyton Mannings and that Collins was in a risker area.--Fred Davis has signed his franchise player tender and the deadline for him to sign a long-term deal is July 16. It is, however, extremely unlikely that Davis will be getting a new, multi-year contract. He is going to have to demonstrate that he can stay out of trouble before the Redskins are going to write him a big signing bonus check.Days until: Rookies report 13; training camp 23; preseason opener @ Bills 37; final cuts 60; Redskins @ Saints 68; home opener vs. Bengals 82

The Sports Junkies on Odell Beckham Jr.: 'He's a wreck'

The Sports Junkies on Odell Beckham Jr.: 'He's a wreck'

On Sunday, Odell Beckham Jr. caught seven passes for 121 yards against the Redskins. However, also on Sunday, Odell Beckham Jr. got into a fight — and lost — with a piece of sideline equipment, had to be calmed down by Eli Manning and, at one point, looked like he was in tears.

Following the contest, Giants head coach Ben McAdoo made some comments about Beckham needing to become less of a distraction. So, during their Wednesday show, the Sports Junkies gave their take on whether or not the star receiver's behavior was an issue.

To put it simply, they roughed him up like that piece of sideline equipment from MetLife Stadium. 

LURCH: Of course it was... How is it not? How is it not a distraction?

CAKES: He was fighting with the practice net. Of course it's a distraction.

LURCH: He was screaming at everybody on the Giants' sideline.

CAKES: He was crying on the sideline.

E.B.: Why is it always a receiver?

LURCH: That guy's a mess.

E.B.: It's always a receiver.

CAKES: Because they're high-strung divas.

LURCH: He's a wreck.

E.B.: Receivers are the worst.

LURCH: He's a great player, but man, what a wreck he is.
