In the one season Jason Verrett played more than half the games, the Chargers cornerback earned Pro Bowl honors. But the other three seasons have ended in injury.
He played six games his rookie season, four games in 2016 and only one game last season.
Verrett is not yet cleared to fully participate in organized team activities as he works his way back from another knee injury, Eric Williams of ESPN reports.
Jackson was fortunate to keep his job following two seasons, but Dee Haslam said the team remains confident he’ll get the Browns turned around.
Hue’s a great coach, a great leader of men, she said. The last couple years have been terrible for us and been really terrible for our fans. We take that responsibility and feel horrible about it because Northeast Ohio and the fans of the Cleveland Browns deserve so much more.
As he prepares for his third season, Jackson said his days of making predictions are over.
I’m not making any more guarantees, he said. I’m not making any more promises.
For all the huffing and puffing from those who strenuously object to the protests, how many rallies or gatherings did they conduct? How many who swore they were done with football actually deprived themselves of something they enjoy, and how many were simply hoping to force a change to the anthem policy with I’ll turn this car around right now-style threats?
Regardless, the truth is that there are NFL fans on both sides of the issue. For reasons still not known or apparent, the NFL has opted only to hear the voices of those who protest the protesting. The NFL’s secret research project regarding Kaepernick’s unemployment revealed that opinions were split, but the NFL ultimately decided to bow to the demographic that is opposed to the protests.
