After the Panthers signed running back C.J. Anderson, Anderson said that he was looking forward to having a great complementary relationship with 2017 first-round pick Christian McCaffrey.
Now, I think if I was approached by the [NFL Players Association] or one of the players who kneel, I would go ahead with the case.At a time when the NFLPA is contemplating which case(s) to go ahead with as it relates to the league’s decision to unilaterally eliminate a right to protest that the league previously had given to the players and confirmed on multiple occasions, maybe the first battle will come within the confines of Beckham’s existing lawsuit.
I’ve been feeling good, but this week was another milestone in the rehab, Cook said. This was a milestone for me just to get back out there and get some things done.
Cook had a tremendously promising start to his rookie season before being lost for the year in a Week 4 loss to Detroit. He rushed for 127 yards in his first game against the New Orleans Saints and combined for 169 yards from scrimmage in a Week 3 victory over Tampa Bay. However, Cook’s knee gave away when he tried to cut away from a closing Lions safety.
The Vikings have been encouraged by Cook’s recovery and expected him to be able to take part in some stuff during OTAs, but getting clearance to return to team work is another good sign.
Last year, the Falcons stood last year on all but one occasion, when two players knelt for one game in response to President Donald Trump calling kneelers sons of bitches. For the other games, Falcons players locked arms in solidarity while the song played. The New York Jets have voiced similar sentiments, but have not announced plans. The team’s owner, Christopher Johnson, has said he will support his players and pay any fines.
