Sports Terrell Davis: Todd Gurley's Knee Problems Sound Like Mine
NFL examining draft plans as coronavirus spreads
The NFL is mulling plans for multiple upcoming league events, including the draft in Las Vegas at the end of April, as the coronavirus continues to spread. "The league office, the (NFL) Players Association, and the city and the state are working together," Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis told the Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken."The league office, the (NFL) Players Association, and the city and the state are working together," Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis told the Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken. "They're making a measured decision. Health and safety will always be No. 1.
Todd Gurley signed with the Atlanta Falcons earlier this week after he was released by the Los Angeles Rams. Gurley has been dealing with arthritis in his knee since signing a huge contract and has failed to recapture the form that allowed him to lead the NFL in yards from scrimmage in 2017 and touchdowns twice. This sounds all too familiar to Hall of Fame running back Terrell Davis, who spoke to TMZ this week.
Davis was so great for such a short period of time that it's understandable if you forget from time to time. In his first four seasons, Davis rushed for 6,413 yards and 56 touchdowns, won two Super Bowls and an MVP. Then he tore his ACL and MCL in 1999 and was never close to the same. Davis played in 17 games total in his last three seasons in the NFL before retiring.
Report: Rams looking to trade Gurley, Cooks
The Los Angeles Rams are in talks to trade star running back Todd Gurley, a source told Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. However, the interested team or teams aren't yet known. The Rams are also making wide receiver Brandin Cooks available for trade, a source told Jeff Howe of The Athletic. L.A. is looking to shed salary and restock its draft picks, Howe adds. Gurley's $10.5 million in bonus money and injury guarantees is set to become fully guaranteed Friday, which could accelerate the Rams' timeline.The running back holds a cap hit of $17.25 million in 2020 as part of the four-year, $57.5-million extension signed in July 2018, according to Spotrac.
Gurley never, but he was one of the best backs in the NFL. Davis worries that Gurley faces a similar fate to his own. The good news for Gurley and the Falcons is that he actually played in 15 games last season and still scored 14 touchdowns. While he may never be a Pro Bowler again, he might still be productive.
