Report: Eagles HC Doug Pederson uncertain to return in 2021

  Report: Eagles HC Doug Pederson uncertain to return in 2021 Earlier this month, we heard that the Eagles were expected to retain head coach Doug Pederson. However, sources tell Chris Mortensen and Tim McManus of ESPN.com that owner Jeffrey Lurie is not confident in Pederson’s vision and that Lurie will meet with his head coach soon to hash things out. © Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports It appears Doug Pederson's job is not as safe as once thought. The elephant in the room, of course, is quarterback Carson Wentz, whose struggles have been (fairly or not) attributed to Pederson, and recent reports indicate that the relationship between Wentz and Pederson is fractured beyond repair.

In 2021, Davante Adams has a case as the best wide receiver in the NFL. In 2009, his junior year of high school, Adams wasn't even the best wideout on his team.

There was a senior at Palo Alto High School during the 2009 football season who put up better numbers than Adams. He's not in the NFL now, though. He didn't even play football after that season.

The senior's name? Joc Pederson. Yes, that Joc Pederson, the former Dodgers outfielder and power hitter in Major League Baseball who's currently a free agent.

Here's how the 2009 stats broke down for Pederson and Adams:

  • Joc Pederson: 30 catches, 650 yards, nine TDs
  • Davante Adams: 25 catches, 484 yards, seven TDs

The Palo Alto Vikings went 7-2-2 that season with a pair of junior quarterbacks, T.J. Braff and Christof Bono, who got to throw to two future world-class athletes. The final game of Pederson's high school football career was a 34-6 postseason loss.

  Islanders: Mat Barzal, Matt Martin and Andy Greene officially signed With these three contracts, the Isles sit at $5.29 million over the cap with room for another minimum contract to be added to final roster. That minimum contract could very well belong to Cory Schneider. The veteran goaltender has been linked to the Islanders alongside Martin and Greene for some time and has been in camp on a PTO. Although Schneider is expected to be the club’s No. 3 goalie, likely a taxi-squad member used as the emergency backup, he could begin the year on the official roster as that extra $700,000 man.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Pederson's football career ended in that 2009 fall, and he was taken by the Dodgers in the 11th round of the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft. He rose through the system as a power-speed threat in the outfield, and he's displayed light-tower power in the big leagues, including a career-high 36 home runs in 2019.

Baseball success hasn't stopped Pederson from being interested in football, though. In 2016, he asked the Rams for a tryout, saying that he'd compare his high school self to Adams' former Green Bay teammate, Jordy Nelson.

In general, things worked out just fine for these two Palo Alto teammates. Pederson won the 2020 World Series with the Dodgers, and Adams is chasing a spot in the 2021 Super Bowl. The conversations are surely lost to history, but maybe once upon a time, Pederson and Adams discussed such ring-winning under the Friday night lights of a California football field.

ASUS isn't giving up on dual-screen PCs anytime soon. This year, it revamped the ultraportable ZenBook Duo with a rising second screen, more power and vastly improved software for working across two displays. Plus, the $999 starting price means you won't have to pay an absurd premium. While it's still not a total home run, the ZenBook Duo is far more compelling than last year — it's a dual-screen machine you may actually want to buy. Let's getLet's get right to what makes the ZenBook Duo special: Its new 12.6-inch ScreenPad Plus still sits directly below a 14-inch main display, but now the second display lifts up slightly as you open it.
