Deshaun Watson case: first complaint filed against the Texans
Josh Allen has still not digested the loss in the playoffs
Josh Allen (QB, Bills) played two high-flying matches during the last playoff campaign, including a memorable pass against Kansas City in the divisional round. Unfortunately for him and his team, things came to an abrupt halt in overtime. The Chiefs won the toss, the first possession and the game, without Buffalo being able to touch the leather. A cruel feeling that still remains in the throat of the quarterback.
A guest on the ‘Bussin with the Boys’ podcast, Allen said losing the draw hurt him more than the loss. Especially since he had a warm hand in this sector since the start of the season. He made the call on every away draw and he hadn’t lost one. A statistic that the CBS teams, broadcaster of the meeting, reminded him of during the preparation for the match a few days before.
“Up to that point, I think I was 9-0. [9 victoires, 0 défaite] throughout the season. In our meeting with production, I was like jinxed and went 0-2 in that game,” Allen said. “They talked about this stat, you were 9-0… And I went 0-2 in that game. I switched, called heads first, then tails end, and it was obviously a turnaround. »
Daniel Snyder plays on words
Daniel Snyder continues to make things more difficult day after day. Last week, House Oversight and Reform Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney said she would subpoena the owner of Commanders to testify in a deposition this week. But according to a spokesperson for the committee, Snyder refused to accept service of the subpoena.
“Mr. Snyder has so far refused to accept service of the Committee’s subpoena. While the Committee has been, and remains, willing to consider reasonable accommodations requested by witnesses, we will not tolerate attempts to evade service of a duly authorized subpoena in order to obtain special treatment that has not not been granted to the other witnesses who testified in this case. The Committee will not be deterred from obtaining Mr. Snyder’s testimony, and we remain committed to providing transparency about the toxic work culture at the Washington Commanders and the NFL’s inadequate response. »
In its defense, the Snyder clan advances a problem of calendar and availability, registering false against the assertion according to which it would have refused to appear before the commission for a deposition.
“Mr. Snyder did not refuse to appear for a deposition,” the statement said. “The Committee has only offered one date – June 30 – and Mr. Snyder’s attorney is out of the country and unavailable on that date. Counsel for Mr. Snyder has offered alternative dates to the Committee and looks forward to finding a solution for Mr. Snyder to continue to cooperate and to address any remaining due process concerns. »
Problem, the Oversight Committee alleged not that Snyder refused to appear, but that he refused to accept service of a subpoena. Simple semantic error?
Warren Sapp calls Colin Kaepernick’s Raiders tryout ‘a disaster’
A month ago, the Raiders reached out to Colin Kaepernick (QB) by giving him a tryout. If the first (and only) echoes were rather positive, it is not at all what suggests Warren Sapp. Asked about VladTV, the former defensive tackle, now an analyst on NFL Network, says just the opposite and does not believe at all in a return.
“I heard it was a disaster. I heard it was one of the worst workouts ever. I wonder how the hell this happened and how the video didn’t air, huh? »
A version contradicted by the agent of the former 49er who pushes the Hall of Famer to check his sources.
“I spoke to the general manager several times, and he said they all thought Kap was in great shape and throwing the ball very well. He encouraged all the teams to call him about the practice and he would tell them the same,” said agent Jeff Nalley. “I am surprised that Warren [Sapp] say that because it’s not true and you’d think he’d want Kap on a team.”

Marlin Briscoe, the first African-American quarterback in the AFL and in modern professional football, died Monday, his daughter announced to The Associated Press. He was 76 years old. Selected in the 14th round of the draft in 1968 by the Broncos, he had participated in 11 games during his rookie season, including 5 starts (1,589 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions + 308 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground). Released after one season, he joined the Bills and converted as a receiver. Position which allowed him to win the honors of a selection to the Pro Bowl in 1970 thanks to his 57 receptions, 1036 yards and 8 touchdowns.
He also made short stints with the Lions, Chargers and Patriots before hanging up his boots at the age of 31 and 9 seasons. Briscoe ended his career with 224 receptions for 3,537 yards and 30 touchdowns, winning two championship rings with the Dolphins (1972, 1973).

Update in the legal dispute between Brian Flores and the NFL
According to The Athletic, the league has formally asked a federal court to refer the matter to arbitration. Expected for a few weeks already, this approach is favored by the league to settle disputes such as this one.
She argued that there is little precedent for courts to deal with the internal affairs of sports leagues. Which she says is the area where Flores’ allegations against Dolphins owner Stephen Ross (as well as his other claims) should fall.
The league is also trying to get former coaches Steve Wilks and Ray Horton – who joined the suit as co-plaintiffs in April – to “separate their cases and file separate arbitration claims”.
Daniel Jones: “The lack of success weighs on me a lot”
Despite the Giants’ decision not to activate the option of 5e year of his rookie contract, Daniel Jones (QB, Giants) takes things philosophically. The motivation is there and he is determined to prove that he can do better than what he has shown. In an interview with the New York Post, the quarterback makes no excuse for the unsatisfactory results of his team since his arrival, as well as his poor performance on the field. Even if he recognizes that the lack of results affects him on a daily basis.
“The lack of success? Yes, it weighs heavily on me,” Jones said. “When you put a lot of time and effort into something and you don’t see the results, I think it’s hard whatever you do. Playing football in the NFL, playing football in New York, I think that weighs heavily. Me and the whole team feel it and we are working as hard as we can to avoid finding ourselves in this situation in the future. Yes, it weighs heavily on me.
The Bengals have sold out all their season tickets
