Pro Days have to be taken not with a grain of salt, but a truckload. That’s not a new concept, and it applies to Lamar Jackson’s Pro Day on Thursday at Louisville as much as it did for Josh Allen, Sam Darnold and every other quarterback prospect in the Authentic Patrick Roy Jersey NFL Draft that’s now four weeks away.
Lamar Jackson, Wide Receiver became a punchline in a hurry. That’s either a sign of progress from the historical, habitual devaluation of certain quarterbacks because of their
athleticism or a depressing reminder that it still has to be rooted out of certain pockets of established thinking and exposed to the light of day.
The progressive thinkers didn’t have to yell that loudly about Jackson’s disinterest in opening the door for a narrow-minded observer to speculate about how he’s got wide-receiver speed. The perception, at least, is that the Jackson-is-a-quarterback crowd is in the majority.
Of course, the reality is it only takes one team to insist he’s a better fit in the league catching passes than throwing them.
The talk about Lamar Jackson, Wide Receiver lasted too long. It wasn’t put to bed forever by Jackson on Thursday. But it’s not because he didn’t try his best to end it.
We stole that one again, first-year manager Alex Cora said.
Bogaerts got hurt while sliding down into the Tampa Bay dugout. Cora said he expected to know more about the severity of the injury on Monday.
Further evaluation tomorrow, Cora said. We’ll know tomorrow after all the tests and everything.

Tampa Bay has dropped eight straight since its win on opening day.
The Rays led 7-2 before Boston’s impressive rally, helped by a pair of wild pitches by Tampa Bay.
Authentic Womens Marcus Cannon Jersey Rafael Devers hit a two-run double and scored on Christian Vazquez’s single to get the Red Sox within one. Vazquez advanced on a wild pitch by Alex Colome (0-1) and scored on Mookie Betts’ single.
Benintendi followed with his clutch double to center, a highlight in a tough start for the young outfielder.
Colome is one of the best closers in the league, Cora said. First of all we pushed them to bring him in early. After that it was good at-bat after good at-bat. It was fun to watch.
Colome said Benintendi got ahold of a cutter.
