Hold on to your hats folks because this weekend’s news includes Tim Tebow:
1. Free Agent QB Tim Tebow will sign with the Philadelphia Eagles. With the addition of Tebow, the Eagles now have four QBs on their roster: Tebow, Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley. Will the Eagles add QB Marcus Mariota (Oregon) to this competition?
2. Longtime Arizona Cardinals S Adrian Wilson is expected to retire and join the Cards’ coaching staff. The five-time pro bowler and one-time all-pro spent training camp with the Chicago Bears a season ago before being cut, the season before he spent with the New England Patriots and the previous 12 seasons he spent with the Cardinals.
3. Pre-draft visits: The New England Patriots set up a pre-draft visit with RB Todd Gurley (Georgia) and the St Louis Rams will be hosting pass rushing specialist Bud Dupree (Kentucky). Gurley could definitely be the Pats’ first round pick should he still be on the board at 32 overall because the Pats have lost both Shane Vereen and Steven Ridley this offseason, and never got consistent play out of any of their RBs last season. The Rams likely won’t draft Dupree at 10 overall because they already have possibly the best defensive line in football.
4. Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis has been taken off of the trading block after accepting a paycut to stay with the team. The team’s motivation for wanting to get rid of Lewis is that they now have TE Julius Thomas, who was signed during this offseason.
That’s all for TheHaysWay today, have a pleasant tomorrow.
