How NFL Teams Are Responding to the Coronavirus Outbreak

How NFL Teams Are Responding to the Coronavirus Outbreak

Yesterday why the league office needed to take the lead on how teams should handle the coronavirus—and how taking the competitive element out of decision-making would allow for clubs to prioritize the well-being of their people.Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened yet. So for now, the 32 organizations are on their own to decide how to handle it. Every team faces different circumstances, and each has a lot to consider. Some have moved faster than others.And that’s why I want to make sure I emphasize this list isn’t an indictment of anyone not listed. I’d like to think everyone’s doing their...

NFL Needs to Shut Down Travel Over Coronavirus

NFL Needs to Shut Down Travel Over Coronavirus

The NFL is not in-season now, like basketball and hockey are. Football is not even in its preseason, like baseball is. And that’s left everyone with the general feeling that, with the coronavirus spreading, it’s the least affected major sports league.Maybe that’s true. But for NFL folks, this also happens to be peak travel season. Coaches and scouts are crisscrossing America to attend pro days. The bigger pro days held by the bluebloods are welcoming in people from, literally, every corner of the U.S. and putting them all in confined spaces.

MAQB: Dak Prescott's Leverage in Dallas

MAQB: Dak Prescott's Leverage in Dallas

This really feels like a long wait for the new league year to start. But we’re all talking about Tom Brady and every other free agent under the sun, so I guess the NFL wins again. As expected…• Because Dak Prescott’s been raked over the coals a little, we’ll give you the math on his leverage points. The exclusive franchise tag number sits right now at $31.63 million. That means tagging him again in 2021 would cost the Cowboys $37.95 million. That means, by doing nothing, he can average $34.7 million over the next two years, then potentially hit the market in 2022, at age 28 (which is the...

He was a Colts exec when Peyton Manning was released in early 2012, and so he knew making it happen wouldn’t be easy, for the player or the team. But if there was going to be a break with Philip Rivers, he badly wanted it to be clean.“Once we saw the way this was heading, it was in the forefront of my mind,” Telesco said, after wrapping up a draft meeting late Monday. “I mean, he’s an icon for the organization and he’s done so...
