Report: Julian Edelman facing four-game PED suspension
The Patriots had Tom Brady back on the field today, but they could be without one of his favorite targets for the first month of the season.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Patriots wide receiver is facing a four-game suspension, for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are the NBA’s old married couple — stylistically and temperamentally different, yet bringing out the best in each other as they mature into their golden years as a backcourt. Then there’s the dominant reserve units, which make the Raps’ early second and fourth quarters the best show in town.
Both DeRozan and Lowry will have to replicate their regular season outputs if the Raptors are to beat the rap as one of the most disappointing playoff teams in recent memory. Among active NBA players, only Rajon Rondo and Jamal Crawford have attempted more field goals in the postseason and converted them at a lower true shooting percentage than DeRozan. Lowry has performed marginally better, but his contributions in the playoffs, in which he has often appeared tired, have fallen well short of the standard he has established as one of the league’s best shot-making guards.
That was the subject of Tuesday’s PFT Live draft, a four-round affair that I easily won, to the dismay (once again) of Chris Simms.
But don’t take my word for it (again, you never would). Dial up the video, and share your views below regarding whether you think any teams other than the eight we identified should have been included.
He broke up 17 passes in the last two seasons combined, an eyebrow-raising total for a guy most quarterbacks weren’t thrilled about challenging. He plays physical and has the potential to be core special-teams player.
There is game video of Hall lined up in a two-point stance, on the edge and to rush the passer. In 2017, he had 19 tackles for loss, six sacks, knocked down six passes and blocked four kicks.
Lauletta is a two-time team captain who processes information quickly, has shown the ability to move defenders in coverage with his eyes and throws on time. Some have concerns about his arm strength but he has a far better feel for the position than most in this draft.
