Brett Favre thinks Aaron Rodgers will finish career in different uniform

  Brett Favre thinks Aaron Rodgers will finish career in different uniform There's been rumors that maybe the Packers will move on from Rodgers and trade him, but while Gutekunst says the 36-year-old will remain in the fold, it's hard to picture him retiring in green and gold. Former Packer Brett Favre believes Rodgers will end his career in a different uniform, and it's hard to disagree with him.

During Tribal Council on the Wednesday, May 13, episode, contestant Sarah Lacina explained that she felt her efforts in the competition were not recognized in the same way as her “Cops ‘R’ Us” ally, Tony Vlachos, due to her gender.

“If a woman in this game lies or cheats or steals, she’s fake and phony and a bitch,” a visibly emotional Sarah, 35, explained. “If a guy does it, it’s good gameplay. … It’s a gender bias. It holds me back. It holds other women back from playing the game the way we should be playing the game.”

Cowboys confident long-term deal with Dak Prescott will get done

  Cowboys confident long-term deal with Dak Prescott will get done One of the biggest storylines that has dominated this past NFL offseason is the protracted nature of the negotiations between the Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott regarding a long-term deal. © Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was set up with the franchise tag this uear in hopes that a long-term contract will be agreed upon shortly. As things currently stand, Prescott is set to make $31.4 million next season under the exclusive franchise tag.

After Jeff, 58, praised the “beautiful” and “powerful” cultural shift in the game’s later seasons, he asked Tony, 46, and Ben Driebergen to share their thoughts on Sarah’s comments.

“I see it in real life. I see it in my work place. I see it everywhere,” the Jersey City, New Jersey, police officer said. The Marine Corps veteran, 37, added, “I know that women can do anything that a man can do, especially in Survivor. … I think everyone needs to respect women because they’re all our mothers and they’re our daughters, and that’s what we’ve got to sit back and realize.”

The TV host agreed, telling the cast, “I am certain if I look back at all of the comments I have made over 20 years, I would find the exact same bias in me — who I call by last names. Guys have different relationships with each other, and I might not know how to have that relationship with a woman.”

He continued, “I’ll definitely own the fact that I don’t think I saw it when Survivor started, and I don’t think I even knew I was supposed to look for it. But I’m very much aware of it now, and I’m grateful that we can open up and investigate, even though it comes with crisis or it comes with hardship or it comes with some tears. Whatever it is, it’s out there and it’s being talked about.”

Sarah then joked, “You can start calling me Lacina,” which put a smile on Jeff’s face.

After the finale aired, the Emmy winner opened up to Entertainment Weekly about his decision to address his past bias and include the moment in the three-hour episode.

“I’ve been with Survivor for 20 years and I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way,” he told the magazine. “I also hope that I’ve changed, grown and matured throughout the years. I’m not the same person I was when I started with the show in 2000. I’ve learned so much from these players. These kinds of personal moments with the players come up from time to time where I feel it’s appropriate for me to inject my own story into the game. Gender bias is something that has become such an important topic that this one felt it was timely and relevant for many reasons. I’m grateful to Sarah for bringing up the topic. It gave me the opportunity to address my own life lessons!”

Could Washington end up releasing Adrian Peterson? .
Peterson is set to earn $2.25M in base pay this year, but the Redskins can drop him without much fiscal penalty. Cutting Peterson would leave the Redskins with just $750K in dead money, versus $2.48M in savings. Would that be the smart move? There’s a case to be made in both directions. Peterson offers veteran leadership for the Redskins’ inexperienced backfield and could serve as a safety net for Guice if the former LSU star gets sidelined again. He’s also delivered for the last two years in D.C., despite the skeptics who said he was washed up. Between 2018 and 2019, Peterson has averaged a solid 4.
