Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price missed practice Wednesday as the Canadiens’ medical staff checked him out a day after he was struck on the mask by a shot in Philadelphia.
Limited Mens Jarrod Dyson Jersey Coach Claude Julien said Price didn’t suffer a concussion, but more would be known about his condition after tests are taken.
If the Vikings choose not to re-sign any of their upcoming free-agent quarterbacks (Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford), Cousins could be the primary target. The sweet spot for the team is around $28 million per year for Cousins, who has performed at a consistent level the past three years, doesn’t have a history of injuries, and has the potential to be a franchise quarterback and put Minnesota over the top.
Minnesota likely cannot offer as much as teams with more cap room. The Vikings have several young and talented players — receiver Stefon Diggs, linebacker Anthony Barr, linebacker Eric Kendricks, cornerback Trae Waynes and defensive end Danielle Hunter — due for extensions in 2019 and will be tight against the cap even if they don’t sign a quarterback to a huge deal.
Martin’s lack of productivity was reportedly the reason for the decision. Just twice in his six seasons with the team has Martin rushed for more than 500 yards.
In 2017, he rushed for just 406 yards and three touchdowns. The season before, he only posted 421 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
The Tampa Bay Times reported that, by releasing Martin, the Bucs will save $6.75 million, which is what Martin was scheduled to make in 2018.
Martin, 29, was a first-round pick of the Bucs from Boise State in 2012 and had a phenomenal rookie season with 1,454 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns.
The only other season in which he came close to that success was in 2015, when he had 1,402 rushing yards and seven total touchdowns.
So, John Lynch … are you sure it was a wise move to leave the cushy broadcast booth and ride the roller coaster that is the everyday life of an NFL general manager?
