Raiders QB Derek Carr agrees to $125 million, 5-year extension, per AP source
ALAMEDA, Calif. — Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has finalized a five-year contract extension that will keep him tied to the team through the 2022 season. Carr tweeted Thursday that an agreement had been reached to add five years to his current rookie deal that expires after this season. The contract will be worth $125 million, according to a person familiar with the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because terms were not released. Both sides had expressed a strong interest in signing a long-term deal with Carr, who was scheduled to enter the final year of his rookie contract. Carr had imposed a deadline of the start of training camp in late July.

What does Derek Carr’s new contract mean for Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins?
The Oakland Raiders appear poised to reward Derek Carr with the next mega-contract for an NFL quarterback. That is significant for Carr and the Raiders as they prepare to challenge the New England Patriots for AFC supremacy during what remains of their time in Oakland. But it also is significant for the next two quarterbacks in line awaiting big deals, the Washington Redskins‘ Kirk Cousins and the Detroit Lions‘ Matthew Stafford. The new standard has been set. Or at least it’s about to be. It will be up to Cousins, Stafford and their representatives to exceed Carr’s contract. Related ArticlesJune 23, 2017 Tom Brady takes on sumo wrestler in Japan June 22, 2017 Chiefs sign Andy Reid to extension, part with GM John Dorsey June 22, 2017 Raiders QB Derek Carr agrees to $125 million, 5-year extension, per AP source June 21, 2017 David Harris, New England Patriots agree to deal, per AP source June 20, 2017 “My memory ain’t what it used to be”: Warren Sapp says he’ll donate his brain for CTE research ESPN reported Wednesday that the Raiders and Carr are close to completing a deal expected to pay him about $25 million per season. That will exceed the $24.6 million average annual value of quarterback Andrew Luck‘s contract with the Indianapolis Colts, now the record for a long-term deal. Carr wrote on Twitter that there’s “nothing done yet.” But the expectation around the league in recent weeks has been that Carr’s deal would exceed the $25 million-a-year mark. It makes sense that Carr would push the salary bar for quarterbacks higher. He established himself as one of the league’s most valuable players last season and led the Raiders back to contender status. If Carr hadn’t been hurt for the AFC playoffs, the Raiders might have been a formidable postseason challenger for the Patriots. Carr and the Raiders resume that chase this coming season. It should be fascinating to watch. The Raiders have sold out their season tickets in Oakland for the 2017 season even with their already ratified move to Las Vegas pending for the 2019 or 2020 season. They have added hometown favorite Marshawn Lynch at running back, and now they will have the sport’s best-paid quarterback as they attempt to become a championship team in a city they have made arrangements to exit. But Carr’s contract has implications in other NFL cities as well. It will serve as an obvious target for Stafford and his representatives. Stafford, too, is coming off a highly productive season, having thrown for 4,327 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2016. The Lions managed to reach the NFC playoffs even without retired wide receiver Calvin Johnson. And Stafford, at age 29, should have some very good seasons left. He is entering the final season of a contract that will pay him $16.5 million this year. “The Stafford contract clearly will take it the next step higher,” said one NFL agent not involved in the Carr, Stafford or Cousins negotiations. “Whatever Carr gets, Stafford will get more. The Cousins thing, that’s a little bit different. Those are negotiations where the numbers are set by the [franchise] tag, more so than [by comparison to] other contracts.” Cousins, franchise-tagged by the Redskins for a second straight year, is to make $23.94 million this season under his one-year franchise deal. The two sides have until July 17 to craft a long-term deal. Barring that, the Redskins could face the prospect next spring of franchise-tagging Cousins for a third year in a row at a price of $34.47 million if they want to keep him off the unrestricted free agent market. Using their transition-player tag instead on Cousins next year (which would allow them to retain Cousins by matching any contract offer by another team, but would not give them the right to receive draft-pick compensation if he leaves) would cost the Redskins $28.73 million. So, to some observers, Cousins and his representatives are likely to weigh any long-term contract offer from the Redskins in the coming weeks against the $58.41 million the team would have to pay him over the next two seasons to retain him via franchise tags. That could make it extremely difficult for the Redskins to sign Cousins, and that’s why many within the league are convinced that he will be elsewhere for the 2018 season. “This is a case where the team really boxed itself in with multiple franchise tags,” the agent said. “The numbers are just so big now, and it doesn’t seem like he [Cousins] is willing to take less than his market value to stay. It’s gonna be really difficult and really, really expensive to get him signed at this point.” [...]

Denver Broncos defensive lineman measurables
Comparing the defensive lineman measurables on the Denver Broncos roster. Since I did an offensive group first (wide receivers), I figured I would move to a defensive group next. The Denver Broncos defensive line was the staff preference for where to look next - so here it is. Again many of these guys either were not invited to the combine or were injured so their numbers are from the Pro-days. Pro-day numbers should always be taken with a grain of salt. NAME POS. HT. WT. Arm Hand 40 Bench Vert Broad 3-cone 20-yd ss Wolfe, Derek DE 6/5 285 33.3 10.8 5.01 33 33.5 108 7.26 4.44 Kerr, Zach DE 6/2 334 32.9 9.8 5.08 28 28.5 99 7.93 4.71 Crick, Jared DE 6/4 285 32.0 10.1 4.99 26 31.0 104 7.47 4.40 Harris, Shelby DE 6/2 290 34.7 9.5 4.88 25 32.0 110 7.52 4.57 Winn, Billy DE 6/4 300 32.5 9.0 5.00 24 27.0 107 7.37 4.44 Gotsis, Adam DE 6/4 287 34.1 10.8 4.88 23 inj inj inj inj Walker, DeMarcus DE 6/4 280 33.0 10.5 4.88 20 31.5 115 7.91 4.71 Edebali, Kasim DE 6/2 253 32.8 9.5 4.79 19 34.5 115 7.20 4.35 Soto, Shakir DE 6/3 290 5.13 18 21.5 inj inj inj Peko, Domata DT 6/3 325 5.25 25 28.5 103 7.69 4.49 Peko, Kyle NT 6/1 305 32.8 9.8 5.13 31 32.5 116 7.30 4.50 Jarrett, Tyrique NT 6/3 335 5.45 22 22.5 100 inj 5.10 What do these numbers tell us? Tyrique Jarrett probably cannot dunk a basketball despite being 6’3” tall. His 22.5” vertical is the poorest of the group. Thankfully his job on the football field does not require much leaping. His 22 reps of 225 lbs looks worrisome considering he is the heaviest DL player yet one of the weakest. If we are comparing “athleticism” for the guys who might play NT this year, Jarrett appears to have the least athleticism. He didn’t participate in the 3-cone at his pro-day, but given how much slower he was in the 20 yd shuttle than the rest of the group, I’m guessing is time would have been over 8.0s easily. I’ve listed Kasim Edabali here as a DE because that is his designation on the team’s roster, but realistically at 253 lbs, he should be in with the OLB’s. He does not fit in with the rest of this group. He appears to be very quick, but given that he is close to 100 lbs lighter than the heaviest guy on this list (Jarrett is closer to 350 than 335 according to what I have read), he SHOULD be quicker than everyone on this list. Shelby Harris has abnormally long arms for a 6’2” player. Adam Gotsis has really long arms and big hands. Gotsis has already been noted to have a great knack for batting down passes at the line of scrimmage. This might be a function of his really long arms. Derek Wolfe, Kyle Peko and Billy Winn are all really quick for their size. Demarcus Walker is not. If you sum 3-cone and the 20-yd shuttle times, you get a score that I call the “change of direction” score, CoD. Normalizing CoD for weight gives you what I call the quickness score, or Quix, where 100 is average. Look at the CoD and Quix scores of the DL players below. NAME POS. HT. WT. CoD Quix Peko, Kyle NT 6/1 305 11.80 110.1 Winn, Billy DE 6/4 300 11.81 107.9 Wolfe, Derek DE 6/5 285 11.70 106.5 Peko, Domata DT 6/3 325 12.18 103.4 Crick, Jared DE 6/4 285 11.87 100.5 Edebali, Kasim DE 6/2 253 11.55 99.5 Harris, Shelby DE 6/2 290 12.09 95.0 Kerr, Zach DE 6/2 334 12.64 91.6 Walker, DeMarcus DE 6/4 280 12.62 77.3 Gotsis, Adam DE 6/4 287 ? ?

Tom Brady takes on sumo wrestler in Japan
TOKYO — New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady got a quick lesson in the ancient sport of sumo during a visit to Japan. Brady, who visited China and Japan this week on a tour promoting football, stopped in at the Sakaigawa sumo stable in Tokyo on Thursday and stepped into the ring with sumo wrestler Goeido. The pair took turns pushing each other from one end of the ring to the other. The 39-year-old Brady, who led the Patriots to the Super Bowl title last season, described the opportunity to learn about sumo as “incredible” while adding that the wrestlers are “very strong” and are “strong in mind and body.” Related ArticlesJune 22, 2017 Chiefs sign Andy Reid to extension, part with GM John Dorsey June 22, 2017 What does Derek Carr’s new contract mean for Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins?

Denver Broncos final 53-man roster projection
It’s easy up until the last 5-8 spots, then you start seeing guys who are on the bubble. That’s where this projection will likely fall apart. Every year around this time (post-OTA’s) one of us takes a stab at projecting the final 53-man roster for the Denver Broncos. Naturally, I thought this would be a easy exercise. Nope! I ended up with 26 players on offense to just 24 on defense, but that decision came down to which unit needs more help. I think the Broncos keep three quarterbacks and though Jake Butt will start on the PUP list, I think he is on this 53-man active roster at some point this year. And probably sooner rather than later The big decision came down to bubble guys. Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro from The Afternoon Drive had a good discussion on players on this roster who will be on that bubble today. The biggest bubble guys for me are Jordan Taylor. He’s a fan favorite, but the Broncos invested heavily in the wide receiver position and he could end up being the odd man out here. Another bubble guy is Ty Sambrailo. The Broncos have tried really hard to make him better, but it doesn’t seem like its going to happen. They should finally move on and give his roster spot to someone who can contribute at another position. Who do you think might be on the bubble? [...]

Are 2017 Warriors best team in Bay Area history?
OAKLAND — If you needed a victory to save the planet, which all-time Bay Area team would get the call? Those who watched Golden State breeze through the NBA playoffs like it was a Pop-A-Shot game might put their fate in the hands of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors’ force field defense.
