It creates a delicate situation for the Seahawks, who may be inclined to not even try to get Sherman to take less money. Before Sherman ever decides to do so, he needs to know what other teams would pay. Few if any teams would risk a tampering charge by dealing with him directly, absent express permission from the Seahawks.
The Redskins sent three first-round picks and a second-round pick to the Rams in that trade and the Rams turned those picks into eight ers through a series of trades in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 drafts. With Ogletree headed for the Giants, defensive tackle Michael Brockers will be the last of the ers acquired with those picks on the team’s roster.
Ogletree will be ing with one of the others cornerback Janoris Jenkins on the Giants. Running back Isaiah Pead and wide receiver Stedman Bailey both had their careers cut short by off-field injuries while tackle Greg Robinson, running back Zac Stacy and offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins never panned out in either St. Louis or Los Angeles.
Darnold may not have put together a herculean performance like Russell and Luck did in 2007 and 2012, respectively, but he provided a workout expected of the potential No. 1 overall pick.
He didn’t make spectacular throws. The 20-year-old completed a few nice passes, but some off-target tosses came out of his hand as well. However, the conditions made all the difference.
The speedy Johnson joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Texas in 2016. He hasn’t ed much and has just five catches in his NFL career, but he may be able to add something to the Seahawks’ offense in an offseason when the Seahawks are making big changes on their defense.
The Los Angeles Rams made a marquee addition to their defensive front Monday when they signed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, as the team announced.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the agreement is a one-year deal worth $14 million, which is less than he could have gotten elsewhere.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network noted the Jets were at least one team to offer more.
