  1. More and more, it looks like the Houston Texans are going to be left with no other recourse than to trade quarterback Deshaun Watson. On Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that there is “a growing sense” that Watson has played his game for the Texans. The star passer is reportedly unhappy about the general direction of the franchise and the way organizational brass has conducted football business of late. If Watson is available via trade, almost every team in the NFL should want to acquire him. However, not every team has the requisite draft capital to pull off such a blockbuster. The New York Jets are one team that does, and Schefter thinks they are the best positioned to put together a package for Watson. New Jets head coach Robert Saleh is said to be high on incumbent quarterback Sam Darnold, the team’s 2018 first-round pick. That may be the case, but if the Jets have a real shot at getting Watson, they have to jump on it. Darnold may have the potential to be better than what he’s shown through three NFL seasons, but Watson is already a top-5 quarterback in the league. He’s also only 25 years old and seemingly entering his prime. Acquiring a building block like Watson would be an instant franchise-changer for the Jets, or any other interested team. Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter There’s no team out there better positioned than the New York Jets to put together a compelling trade package for Deshaun Watson. Daniel Jeremiah @MoveTheSticks If Watson became available via trade, the Jets should call. You could trade 2nd pick this year (they still have 23rd pick), 1st in 2022 (They have 2) & 1st in 2023. That’s 3 first round picks. They could pickup extra pick/picks if they traded Sam. (My gift to sports radio)
  2. By David K. Li The New York Jets hired San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh to be their new head coach, making him the first Muslim to run an NFL sideline, the team announced Thursday night. "We've reached an agreement in principle with Robert Saleh to become our head coach," the Jets said in a statement. Saleh has spent the past four years in Santa Clara, California, transforming the 49ers' defense from a onetime laughingstock to one of football's most elite units. He'll take over a team that won just two of 16 games this past season and hasn't made the playoffs since the 2010-11 campaign. The Jets have just one Super Bowl title in franchise history, the famed Joe Namath guarantee of Jan. 12, 1969. Recommended U.S. NEWSVirginia gang killer executed by U.S. despite Covid infection Before Saleh, 41, a native of Dearborn, Michigan, was hired by the Jets, no Muslim had ever been an NFL head coach, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, a Muslim civil rights advocacy group. "We welcome this development as another sign of the increasing inclusion and recognition of American Muslims in our diverse society," CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said in a statement late Thursday. Saleh, whose family traces its roots to Lebanon, will be third Arab American NFL head coach, following in the footsteps of Abe Gibran and Rich Kotite, who are both of Lebanese descent, according to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Gibran was head coach of the Chicago Bears for three seasons, 1972 to 1974. Kotite ran the Philadelphia Eagles for four seasons (1991-94) and the Jets for two seasons (1995-96). Saleh brings considerable credentials to his new job in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Before he took over the 49ers' defense in 2017, San Francisco had ranked dead last in total yards surrendered. The 49ers were 24th and 13th in total defense in Saleh's first two years in charge, before the crew ranked second and fifth in the league the last two seasons. This season's accomplishments were particularly impressive in light of the staggering number of injuries that prevented many of Saleh's best players from taking the field. David K. Li David K.

  9. No football, no problem for Odell Beckham. Beckham told Wall Street Journal Magazinethat “it doesn’t make sense” for the NFL to charge forward with the 2020 season amid the COVID-19 pandemic and plans to do so are because greedy team owners see the players as sub-human. “Obviously with everything that’s going on, it doesn’t make sense why we’re trying to do this,” Beckham said during an interview conducted July 21 but published Monday. “I can understand basketball was already in the playoffs. Five-on-five basketball in an arena is going to be more intense than regular-season games. Hooping is different than playing an 11-on-11 contact sport where there’s 80 people in a locker room. “We’re not ready for football season. So why are we trying to push forward? It’s obviously for their money. And that bothers me because there’s always been this—and I hate saying it like that—but the owners’ [attitude is], ‘Oh we own you guys,’ and just kind of that unfairness going on that they don’t see us as human. I just feel like the season shouldn’t happen and I’m prepared for it to not happen and I wouldn’t mind not having it.” Since the interview, the NFL and its players union agreed to safety protocols, including a voluntary opt-out provision available to all players. Beckham reported to Cleveland Browns training camp July 28 and has no plan to opt out, according to multiple reports. Odell BeckhamDiamond Images/Getty Images Beckham said earlier this season that he nearly retired from the Giants in 2018, after a season-ending injury and when he stopped having fun in New York. Then he signed a record-setting five-year, $90 million contract, played one more season for the Giants and was traded to the Browns, where he has gone on a Giants-bashing spree. Beckham first shared his reservations last month during a roundtable discussion with other NFL stars. He has been watching “Game of Thrones,” playing the “Call of Duty: War Zone” video game, growing his activism voice and training in Los Angeles this offseason Beckham designed and released a T-shirt in June with the words “I Still Can’t Breathe.” He donated 100 percent of the proceeds ($250,000) from the sold-out merchandise to the Black Lives Matter Foundation. “I definitely want to figure out how else I can help, how I can be part of the solution,” Beckham said. “The first drop was cool and we did some great numbers. “I got a tattoo that I haven’t shown anyone yet, a BLM tattoo. It’s a list of all—well, not all, because there’s plenty more—it was a design of a street where they wrote in chalk, all of the names [of victims of police violence], and it was my [phone] background for a while. I just really liked it.”
  10. Giants cornerback Deandre Baker turned himself in to police on Saturday morning, his lawyer announced (via Instagram). Baker is facing a number of felony counts in connection with an armed robbery, though he maintains his innocence. [RELATED: Baker, Dunbar Wanted For Armed Robbery] “Police reports are just that, reports of what was told to them or said to them,” said attorney Bradford Cohen. “Court is what we use to then examine those reports, investigate those claims and allow the defendant an opportunity to confront the evidence. Don’t rush to judgement.” The witness statement and police reports claim that Baker held people at gunpoint while fellow NFL cornerback Quinton Dunbar grabbed the loot. Police are pursuing a total of eight charges against Baker while Dunbar is looking at four. The Giants, Seahawks, and the NFL have all declined to comment on the matter, except to say that they are aware of the situation. Dunbar, presumably, will follow suit by cooperating with the authorities. In his final year at Georgia, Baker won the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation’s top collegiate defensive back. In that season, he finished out with 40 tackles, two sacks, nine passes defended, and two interceptions. The 5-foot-11 cornerback started and struggled for most of his rookie season; the Giants were hoping to see a major step forward from him in 2020. At this point, his availability for this year is very much in doubt.
