NFL Update July 10: Joe Burrow at the Olympics?

Joe Burrow Wants to Play for Olympic Flag Football Team

While he is focused on his return to the field after a serious wrist injury, Joe Burrow (QB, Bengals) is looking to the longer term. During the podcast Pardon My Take Cincinnati's Burrow says he'd like to play flag football. With the sport set to become an Olympic sport in 2028 and the Los Angeles Olympics, Burrow said he'd like to be a part of Team USA. He'll also look to reunite LSU's former offense with Justin Jefferson (WR, Vikings) and Ja'Marr Chase (WR, Bengals).

“I really want to play for the Olympic flag football team. Imagine Ja’marr, Justin, me and my friends playing flag football… I think that would be really cool!”

In his next speech, the 27-year-old quarterback said it would be “embarrassing” for the United States not to win gold in the first time flag football is played at the Olympic level. With an offense led by Joe Burrow, there's no doubt the Americans would be the big favorites in the competition.

Matthew Judon far from an extension

The Patriots' top pass rusher in 2022, Matthew Judon (EDGE, Patriots) saw his 2023 season cut short by a serious injury. At the end of his contract at the end of the 2024 season, the 31-year-old is looking for a new contract. His wish is to extend his adventure with the New England franchise.

But, according to Fox Sports, the two parties are far from an agreement. The Patriots have reportedly made an offer, which the player has refused for the moment. In 2024, Matthew Judon is expected to be worth $14 million in the Patriots' payroll.

Justin Jefferson doesn't hold a grudge against Kirk Cousins

For the first time in his NFL career, Justin Jefferson (WR, Vikings) is not starting the season with Kirk Cousins ​​(QB, Falcons) as quarterback. Having left for Atlanta for $180 million over 4 years, the quarterback leaves a void in Minnesota, but his former star receiver does not hold it against him. This is what he confided during The Rich Eisen Show.

“I always knew Kirk would do whatever it took for his business. I knew things weren’t the way he wanted them to be here, especially having to pay me and so many other people. I feel like he wanted a fresh start, a new opportunity to start with Atlanta and clean up the past. I don’t hold it against him at all, I’m grateful for what he’s given me and what we’ve accomplished together. At the end of the day it’s a business, you have to do what you have to do for yourself and your family. I totally understand that.”

Josh Allen Changes His Name

Josh Allen (EDGE, Jaguars) is changing his last name, he will now sport Hines-Allen on the back of his jersey. An unintentional way to differentiate him from the Bills quarterback, but above all a tribute to his maternal family.

“Legacy lives on and I’m proud to carry that tradition on the back of my jersey, following in the footsteps of my family who have carried the Hines-Allen family name with such pride and joy. My last name has been changed, but I’m still that person. And I’ll continue to play like that, and play even better.”

In addition to the last name, the player's first name is also changed. He will now be called Joshua and not “Josh”.

In addition to Joshua, several members of the family are elite athletes with that name. His sister Myisha Hines-Allen plays for the Washington Mystics in the WNBA, while his two other sisters Kyra and LaTorri Hines-Allen played college basketball. His uncles were also basketball players, with Gregory Hines drafted by the Warriors in 1983 and Keith having played for Montclair State University.

Dak Prescott tries to reassure everyone…

The 31-year-old quarterback was spotted wearing a walking boot recently. It got some fans, as well as the media, talking. But nothing serious, he told TheAthletic.com.

“It’s all good, I’m getting older. It’s the same ankle, the right one, that gave out and had a major operation four years ago. So a few days of hard training and it gets a little sore. And you go fishing and you want to protect it and make sure it doesn’t get worse.”

…and wait patiently for a new contract

This is Dak Prescott's final contract year with the Cowboys. The quarterback has his head on the field rather than the negotiation side according to NBC. He already showed it last year with a full season, 4,516 passing yards and 36 touchdowns.

“I let my agent take care of that. [les négociations]. Even more so when training camp came around. The first day, my mind just shifted to helping my team, doing everything I can with the franchise and on the field to make sure I'm at my best and everyone around me is at my best. The money will come along, like it always does.”
