Texans tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz has said that a 2017 season plagued by concussions may force him to retire. However, he continues to be a member of the Texans, unless and until he decides to walk away.
“I don’t think any decision’s been made in that regard relative to C.J.,” coach Bill O’Brien said Wednesday, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “We’re looking at our roster [and] we’re talking to a lot of different players.”
Or is he the player who in his first five seasons with three different teams went 9-15 as a starter and threw 24 TDs to 20 INTs?
This is what John Elway and the Broncos are about to find out, since they’re about to sign him to a free-agent contract to be their starter. The Broncos will find out if Keenum was a product of quarterback-whisperer offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur (now the Giants head coach) and a stingy Minnesota defense or whether he can shoulder the load as a franchise quarterback as opposed to the feel-good story out of nowhere he was last year.
Cousins — all the power to him — took advantage of his leverage based on the dearth of quality NFL starting-caliber quarterbacks and a litany of needy teams in today’s market and is about to score a landmark deal that could benefit some of his fellow players in the near future.
After the news broke, Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin Jr. quickly sent out this message on his Twitteraccount: “Kirk Cousins is a hero for all the young players that will follow after him. Now we need more players to bet on themselves until fully guaranteed contracts are the norm and not the exception.’’
Is Cousins — whose prolific statistics (three consecutive 4,000-plus-yard passing Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping seasons and a 65.5 career completion percentage with 99 touchdowns to 55 interceptions and 93.7 passer rating) Trade Cheap Jerseys outweigh his pedestrian won-loss record (26-30-1 and only one playoff game appearance) — worth that kind of money to the Vikings, who already had a couple of pretty good quarterbacks on their roster last year?
