Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Raiders and RB Marshawn Lynch agreed to a restructured his contract last weekend before his $1 million roster bonus was due.
Lynch’s new contract reduced his base salary to $5.5 million for the 2018 season, but essentially guaranteed him $4.5 million of this figure when had previously had no guaranteed money remaining. In total, Lynch can earn up to $9.25 million total with incentives.
Obviously, Darnold is confident in his ability to deliver in the rain. And if he’s going to wind up in a market like Cleveland, New York or Buffalo, that’ll come in handy.
If it’s raining Wednesday in Los Angeles, there’s an even higher chance Darnold’s pro day performance will make or break him as a potential top pick.
Despite this, the Bengals say they have no intention of releasing the embattled linebacker.
It’s not ideal, Bengals director of player personnel Duke Tobin told The Cincinnati Enquirer. The situation he has put us in is not ideal. We are a player-oriented business. Players that can make a difference are important and we recognize that. The more he’s not available to us the more it hurts us.
It sounds like Cincinnati is simply providing another warning to Burfict without doing anything of substance. When asked if the team has had conversations about releasing Burfict, Tobin responded in the affirmative with a pretty strong caveat.
Trading so-so offensive tackle Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals was a coup for the Buffalo Bills, who are better off with 2017 second-round pickDion Dawkins at left tackle and now hold the No. 12 selection in the draft.
