Earl Thomas won’t attend Seahawks minicamp

  Earl Thomas won’t attend Seahawks minicamp Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said last week that he was expecting safety Earl Thomas to be at the team’s mandatory minicamp when it starts on Tuesday, but Thomas has other plans. In a post to Twitter on Sunday, Thomas announced that he will not attend the team’s minicamp. Thomas suggested he won’t be at training camp either unless the team gives him a new contract.“I will not be attending the upcoming minicamp or any team activities until my contract situation is resolved.

PITTSBURGH, PA - JANUARY 14: Le ' Veon Bell . With free agency in full swing and the NFL draft just over a month away, the Pittsburgh Steelers are putting their contract talks with Le ’ Veon Bell on hold.

The latest news regarding the contract stalemate between Le’Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers is not encouraging, to say the least.

We already know how much Bell wants to be paid per year on any long-term deal.

The problem is, the Steelers put contract talks with Bell on the back burner months ago before the draft. Since then, the two sides haven’t talked about a new deal, according to Mark Kaboly of The Athletic.

“Nearly two months have passed, and with it being a little more than 30 days shy of the deadline to get a new deal done, there have been no talks between the two sides, a source told The Athletic on Wednesday,” Kaboly wrote.

Report: Beckham prefers to avoid team reps, not rush back

  Report: Beckham prefers to avoid team reps, not rush back Odell Beckham Jr. is not planning to hold out for a new contract from the New York Giants, but that does not mean the star wide receiver will be a full participant in mandatory minicamp this week. Beckham is still working his way back from ankle surgery that ended his 2017 season, and ESPN’s Josina Anderson reports that the Giants discussed the possibility of declaring him fully cleared medically at the start of minicamp. Beckham, however, would prefer to “safely avoid team reps” for the time being.

Le ' Veon Bell not reporting to Steelers ' OTAs May 21 - 6:48 PM As expected: Le ' Veon a no-show for Steelers Apr 18 - 3:58 PM The Steelers ' contract talks with franchise player Le ' Veon Bell are on hold.

Le ' Veon Bell encouraged by talks on new deal with Steelers . Le ' Veon Bell 's optimism about reaching an agreement shows that perhaps the Steelers see a chance to avoid using the franchise tag for a second time.

Bell is set to earn $14.5 million on the franchise tag this year. He has stated he will not attend training camp without a long-term deal, which means it looks like the Steelers won’t see him until the regular season for the second consecutive year.

Furthermore, it’s looking more and more likely that Bell will become one of the most coveted free agents in 2019, when he’ll assuredly land the contract he so desperately wants. It just won’t likely happen with the Steelers.

Roethlisberger in a good place as he prepares for 15th NFL season .
Ben Roethlisberger is no dummy. He knows the going rate for NFL quarterbacks these days, from Matt Ryan’s $30 million a year to Kirk Cousins’ $28 million to Jimmy Garoppolo’s $27.5 million to Matthew Stafford’s $27 million. Ben Roethlisberger is no dummy. He knows the going rate for NFL quarterbacks these days, from Matt Ryan’s $30 million a year to Kirk Cousins’ $28 million to Jimmy Garoppolo’s $27.5 million to Matthew Stafford’s $27 million. Roethlisberger is hardly complaining, although he concedes it is silly money.
