“I think the older you get, the more you realize how important life is, the more you think about your family.” -Wes Welker, WR
With the one-day trial over, I decided it would be best to re-introduce the quote+news posts with a quote from a guy in today’s news. Honestly, I am not old enough to truly determine the validity of Welker’s quote. However, I do value family very highly in life. In fact, I value people, in general, more than anything else in this world. I do my absolute best everyday to be the best family member, best friend, or best stranger, that I can be. Ultimately, there is more to life than money, and for me, that ‘more’ is all of the people around me. Now, onto the news:
- Starting with the Wes Welker news to tie in with the quote, the former WR was present at both the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins OTAs as a guest coach. The WR appears to be done playing in the NFL with his concussion history and massive decline in reduction. I’m not sure if he’s ready to coach at the NFL level just yet, but I imagine he will be ready in the not-too-distant future.
- The San Diego Chargers have inked WR Keenan Allen to a new contract extension. It is a four-year contract worth $44 million. As long as the injury last season was just a fluke, Allen could possibly become the new Antonio Gates of receiving threats in San Diego for the QB that comes to follow the aging Philip Rivers. Great signing.
- Staying in San Diego, the Chargers are filing for a new stadium in the city. Of course, included in the file: 110,786 signatures! Chargers fans, it’s time to get more optimistic about your team staying where they belong! (Knock on Wood)
- Good news for Jacksonville Jaguars fans: First-round pick CB Jalen Ramsey has started running just two weeks after tearing the meniscus in his right knee. So you won’t be without your first-round pick for the second year in a row! (Knock on Wood)
