Jon Maletz of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle wrote a truly interesting story about former Giants player Corey Widmer and what playing football did to his body.

It deserves your attention so we are all fully informed about the sport we love so much.

I’m 49 years old, depressed to the Nth degree but have a lot of money…and some people might say it’s still worth it. I just tell them to watch what they wish for, Widmer told Maletz. If someone could’ve explained all of this to me when I was 14, I would’ve given it all back in a heartbeat. I would’ve wished for something else.

The 6’2, 260-pound canary in the coal mine has died. Maybe having been in the coal mine is the only way to really get the point across.

Brady posted a league-best passer rating of 103.4 on throws within 14 yards of the line of scrimmage, but on those passes traveling 15 or more yards in the air, his 96.8 rating was only good for 11th. Cooks might have helped open up some of those underneath routes, but the Patriots probably don’t want to throw the ball downfield as much as they did in 2017.

Brandin Cooks will be changing teams for the second time in as many offseasons. How does the move change his fantasy value and which of his former New England teammates will step up in his place

What’s fascinating now, of course, is what the Patriots are suddenly positioned to do. New England now has two first-rounders (Nos. 23 and 31) and two second-rounders (Nos. 43 and 63) to play with in this year’s draft, which is an awful lot of draft capital for Belichick to work with. Belichick has made a career out of trading down and taking advantage of other GM’s overconfidence on draft day, but I think it’s unlikely that the Pats are going to turn these four picks into seven or eight selections.

Worrilow will add competition to an Eagles linebacker group that includes Jordan Hicks, Nigel Bradham, Mychal Kendricks and the recently acquired Corey Nelson. Kendricks has been the subject of trade speculation for the second straight offseason. The Eagles have options should they move him.

Worrilow should also help on special teams, an area of focus for the Eagles. He was a core special-teams player for the Lions last season, playing close to half of the special-teams snaps.

He came to Detroit from the Atlanta Falcons, where he made the team as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware in 2013.

Worrilow has played in 72 career games, making 412 tackles with four sacks apatriots_051
