Alex Smith on expectations for Monday: Just come in and be myself
Some of it through osmosis, I guess, Smith said. Just trying to take it in. I think every little bit helps as you familiarize yourself. Those are all reps. Take more and more reps, as much as I can. We have limited time together. The more I can do on my own, the better.
Reports surfaced on Monday — first from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network — the Seahawks were planning to release the 35th overall pick from the 2017 draft after he missed all of last season because of a head injury suffered in an ATV accident in July back in Michigan.
At last month’s NFL meetings in Orlando, coach Pete Carroll was asked about McDowell’s status.
No, sorry, Carroll told The Seattle Times. I haven’t had a good response for you in a long time on that one, sorry.
According to The Times, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said the team was waiting on the scans before it would know more about McDowell’s future.
It appears, scans or not, the Seahawks have determined that future won’t be in Seattle. The team won’t save any money off the four-year, $6.95 million deal it signed McDowell to, though it could try and recoup some of his $3.19 million signing bonus. It all points to the likelihood the Seahawks are simply ready to move on from the pick.
Wade turned in a vintage performance, scoring 28 points to end the 76ers’ 17-game winning streak and lead the Miami Heat to a 113-103 Game 2 win over Philadelphia on Monday night and even the first-round playoff series.
It’s just in my DNA, Wade said. I love the stage.
The 36-year-old flashed the form of a three-time NBA champion with the Heat, not the journeyman who bounced around the last two seasons with forgettable stints in Chicago and Cleveland.
Wade made 11 of 17 shots and put on a show in the second quarter and put it away in the fourth.
