When Washington ended the 2018 NFL draft by selecting SMU wide receiver Trey Quinn, it made him this year’s Mr. Irrelevant. But Quinn doesn’t sound too keen on that name.
Quinn led the NCAA with an average of 8.8 receptions per game last season, he holds the all-time national high school record for career receiving yards, and he once threw a no-hitter in the Little League World Series. He thinks that all makes him very relevant.
“It’s the most ironic name for me,” Quinn told KPLC. “I went through my career and I set every record that I stepped foot in at every place. I think I might be the most relevant, irrelevant ever. I have a chip on my shoulder. Everybody’s going to see it.”
Thus far, the Dallas Cowboys have been reaping the benefits of Prescott making chicken feed. The fourth-round pick signed a four-year contract in 2016 worth $2.7 million total — that’s less than what slot receiver Cole Beasley will make in base salary this year ($3.25 million). Prescott is slated to make $630,000 in base salary in 2018. His $725,848 cap hit is the 35th highest on the Cowboys, less than the likes of Charles Tapper ($784,470), Chaz Green ($877,234) or Joe Looney ($975,000).
The program will continue in 2018 with the four AFC North teams getting assigned players this time. The Ravens are the first team to announce their foreign addition.
It is fullback Chris Ezeala, who also played linebacker and special teams, including time as a punter, in the German League for the last three years. Ezeala has spent the last three months training with former Ravens running back Earnest Byner at the IMG Academy in Florida.
Converted defensive tackle Patrick Ricard is the only other fullback on the Ravens right now. That won’t make the jump in competition any easier for Ezeala to handle, but it does offer a path to the 53-man roster if he can show the potential to offer the team more than Ricard did last season.
Even though we weren’t allowed to talk football, Eli was here every day, Shurmur said.
