Los Angeles’ latest win is yet another display of how far the young and emerging roster has come since last season.
Game Artie Burns Jersey
Thomas was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Kyrie Irving deal, and he did not return to action from the hip injury until Jan. 2. He played in only 15 games with the Cavs before he was dealt at the trade deadline, along with Channing Frye and a protected first-round pick, to the Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.
Game Steven Nelson Jersey
First of all it was frustrating for him to work six, seven months, trying to get back on the basketball floor, said Miami’s Dwyane Wade, who was with Thomas in Cleveland Ryan Spooner Jersey before both were traded at the trade deadline.
It’s a great time to be Mike McCartney, who as Cousins’ agent was overjoyed when the 49ers signed quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and his seven career starts to a record $27.5 million-per-year deal. That jumped the asking price for Cousins and pending free-agent Drew Brees (a Tom Condon/CAA client) to the $30 million-per-year level. While it’s inevitable Brees will remain in New Orleans, Cousins has a list of suitors, possibly including the Jets, Broncos, Cardinals, Browns and Vikings. Lots of competition among teams that have quarterback needs and, for the most part, have plenty of salary cap room creates a great situation for Cousins.
It is, ‘What have you done for me lately?’ Thomas said. That is the league that we are in, and I understand that. But if I am given the same opportunity that I was given in Boston, I would do the same thing, and that is just what it is. They’ll [people who have forgotten what Thomas can do] come back around, I am positive about that.
Even before the Super Bowl, the Redskins got a head start on 2018 NFL free agency, agreeing to acquire Alex Smith from the Chiefs as their new starting quarterback. Now that another Mr. Smith is going to Washington, it clears up the biggest question of the team’s offseason. It will not be spending to keep Kirk Cousins.
Smith, with his extension already in place for the Redskins, will take up $17 million of the team’s salary cap room, leaving it around $32 million under (per OverTheCap.com) once the deal becomes official in March.
