Match day – Week 1: cascade of injuries and shortage of contracts

Hot news

[podcast] Fantasy S1: Stefon Diggs, hot star?

49ers: Nick Bosa is ready

Nick Bosa (DE, 49ers) spent part of the summer watching his teammates, but he has a new contract, and he’s ready to honor it.

“I’m ready for a normal workload, that’s clear,” assured last season’s best sacker to 49erswebzone.com. “But I haven’t spoken to the coach yet. »

Kyle Shanahan, in fact, was not precise. In front of the press, the coach simply explained that he has “an idea” of the playing time planned for his star.

No new contract for Mike Evans

An ultimatum ? Not enough to move the leaders of the Buccaneers. Mike Evans (WR) did not sign a contract extension before his deadline on Saturday. According to ESPN, no contract has been offered to him since he expressed his ultimatum.

Evans should therefore play the coming season, the last of his contract, before being free in March.

Panthers: Brian Burns should play

Even if he didn’t get the new contract he wanted, Brian Burns (DE, Panthers) should be on the field for Carolina this Sunday. This is what ESPN reports.

Burns practiced normally Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. He had skipped the two previous sessions.

Transactions

– Graham Gano (K, Giants) signed a 3-year, $16.5 million contract extension this Friday. 11.3 million would be fully guaranteed. Gano is 36 years old. He has made 91.8% of his kicks since arriving in New York in 2020. (ESPN)

– Cesar Ruiz (OG, Saints) signed a 4-year, $46 million contract extension, including $30 million guaranteed. (ESPN)

– Luke Rhodes (LS, Colts) became the highest paid long snapper in history by signing a 4-year contract this Friday for $6.5 million. (PFT)

– Matt Corral (QB) is already no longer a member of the Patriots. According to the Boston Herald, he was placed on the list of players who left the squad, precisely because he left without warning. Bailey Zappe (QB) has been reinstated to the 53 squad from the practice squad. So here he is again, replacing Mac Jones.

The main signings of the day: William Bradley-King (DE, Commanders), Troy Reeder (LB, Rams)

The main cuts of the day: Myles Gaskin (RB, Vikings), Cornell Armstrong (CB, Falcons)

In short

– Kadarius Toney (WR, Chiefs) deleted his X account (ex-Twitter) after his cataclysmic performance at the start of the season this Thursday. The opportunity to remind people that the players are fully aware of having had a bad match, and that there is no need to insult them or remind them, and that they are human.

– An average of 26.8 million Americans watched the NFL season opener on NFC and its online platforms. That’s 24% more than in the 2022 opener between the Bills and Rams.

Tee Higgins away from an extension

After robbing the Brinks van to pay Joe Burrow, the Bengals no longer have much to offer Tee Higgins (WR), in his last year of his rookie contract.

According to journalist Kelsey Conway (Enquirer/USA Today), the franchise and the player would be very far from an agreement. With 1,029 yards and 7 touchdowns last season, Ja’Marr Chase’s faithful lieutenant is an important element of the Cincinnati attack.
