The Cleveland Browns need a quarterback, and ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. believes the franchise could be looking to pick one in the second-round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Kiper acknowledged the struggles of DeAndre Yedlin Authentic Womens Jersey Johnny Manziel and his own failure to predict what would happen to the signal caller out of Texas A&M during a Thursday conference call.
“I had no idea what Johnny Manziel would be. He was one of those guys you roll the dice. I had no clue,” Kiper said about his Manziel prognostications at this time last year.
Manziel, taken with the 22nd-overall selection in last year’s draft, had a disappointing rookie campaign. In his first start, he was intercepted twice and shutout in a 30-0 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. During Week 17, Manziel threw a party which caused him to miss the team’s Saturday walk-through, and led many to question his commitment.
This is why Kiper believes the team might look for some insurance at the position.
San Francisco seemed to prepare for this possibility, drafting Brandon Thomas a season ago, and Joe Looney has also received considerable playing time of late. One of those guys should be able to fill Iupati’s place. Most have figured Iupati is definitely gone from San Francisco, and the most surprising aspect of Maiocco’s tweet may actually be that there is a chance he returns.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne had triceps surgery and is now dealing with Fabian Johnson Authentic Womens Jersey the decision of whether to retire or return for another season, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Wayne is currently rehabbing the injury but it’s unclear if that is a factor in his decision. Wayne has been in the league since 2001, when the Colts made him a first-round pick, and he’s amassed 1,070 receptions for 14,345 yards and 82 touchdowns in that time.
His production has been sporadic over the past couple seasons but he’s remained an effective receiver. He also has only ever played for the Colts organization, and has stated that he can’t imagine playing anywhere else. Wayne is set to be a free agent in March, which could have a lot to do with his decision. If the Colts want him back, it seems more likely that he’d return.
