Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will be allowed to participate in this year’s NFL Scouting Combine despite an arrest nearly a year ago, a league spokesman said Wednesday according to ESPN.
Whether the Heisman Trophy winner would be invited to the combine came under question since the NFL policy has prevented some players with off-field legal issues from participating. The most recent case was last year when Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon wasn’t invited to the combine (he eventually was drafted in the second round by the Bengals).
That leaves little brother Eli. He was humiliated after being benched temporarily by the Giants this season. With two Super Bowl victories under his belt, against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, Eli might figure he has nothing left for which to play. At 36, he’s a year younger than Romo. If ESPN is looking for the next Romo, Eli Manning could be it.
Jesse Palmer (ESPN/ABC): The answer to ESPN’s Womens Willie Roaf Jersey problem could be right under its nose. Palmer has called both college football and the NFL from the broadcast booth for ESPN and Fox. He’s young, smart and telegenic. He cut his teeth in the booth next to broadcasting legend Brent Musburger at the SEC Network. He knows the key college football talent coming into the NFL. The former Florida quarterback signed a contract extension with ESPN in 2017. He’s well-liked at ESPN’s parent company, Disney, which cast him on ABC’s The Bachelor and Good Morning America.
The Steelers are good but the Jaguars defense is more than formidable. Jacksonville cornerback A.J. Bouye warned Roethlisberger to be careful what he wished for, because the Jags are back to prove what they did was not an accident.
Something else that isn’t an accident is how good the folks over at Opta are at their jobs. They dove deep into the books to find 10 stats for Sunday’s game and, like always, they have outdone themselves.
Pittsburgh has won three of its last four games against Jacksonville, although the Jaguars won their matchup earlier this season 鈥?a 30-9 victory in Pittsburgh in Week 5. They also won the lone prior playoff meeting between the two sides 鈥?a 31-29 win in Pittsburgh in the wild-card round of the 2007 playoffs.
