Alvin Kamara facing a civil lawsuit?

While he might not escape suspension, Alvin Kamara (RB, Saints) also faces a civil lawsuit. According to Pro Football Talk, the man the running back allegedly punched in Las Vegas last February will file a lawsuit seeking financial damages. Kamara was charged with assault and battery following an altercation over Pro Bowl weekend. CCTV footage showed NFL player punching Darnell Greene eight times following an argument. The latter was knocked unconscious and suffered a fractured orbital bone as a result of this incident.

In this case, the league’s disciplinary hearing is scheduled for 1er august. Any decision could be pushed back to 2023 if the NFL decides to wait out the legal process. In the meantime, the Saints are preparing for all possible eventualities in view of the next season.

“We really have to wait and see what happens,” Mickey Loomis (GM) said on the Dattitude podcast. “I’m always trying to figure out what’s the worst-case scenario and what’s the best-case scenario. We must be ready for anything. That’s really the way we have to approach things, is to be prepared for whatever may happen. »

Trey Smith (OG, Chiefs) defends Tyreek Hill pick

His departure to Miami may have come as a surprise and even earned him death threats, but Tyreek Hill (WR) can count on the support of a former teammate. Asked by 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, Trey Smith said he understands the choice of the receiver, adding that the business of football requires players to do what is best for them, because the coaches and members of the front office will always do what is best for the team.

“Yes, the coaches will do what they think is best for the organization and for the team. And I can’t blame Tyreek [Hill] ; he gets paid,” Smith said. “I would never blame a guy for wanting to get paid, he has to do what’s best for him. I’m really excited to see what he will do in Miami, I wish him luck. »

No additional draft in 2022

For the 3e consecutive year, the NFL will not hold an additional draft this summer. The news was announced to teams late last week according to NFL Network. The last player selected during this event was safety Jalen Thompson by the Cardinals at 5e turn in 2019.

This draft takes place over 7 rounds with players whose eligibility status has changed since the traditional draft sign-up deadline. Teams that draft during the Supplemental Draft must then forfeit that same level of draft at the next Regular Event.

Peyton Manning advised Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan

Although he has been away from the NFL lawns for a few years now, Peyton Manning retains influence over the environment. According to NFL.com, the former Colts and Broncos quarterback said during his annual camp that he advised Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan on their respective transfers to Denver and Indianapolis:

“I spoke to both during the process and tried to be good advice like I try to be for all quarterbacks,” Manning said. “For Matt [Ryan] in particular, he mentioned that Atlanta was looking for a possible trade and he asked about Indy. I really enjoyed this connection. I thought that would be great for Matt in that second chapter for him, and I thought that would be really good for the Colts, who I think are really close and have a lot of plays and could really use a leader veteran. He and Frank Reich got along really well. »

“And it’s the same for Russell[Wilson], Nope ? It’s a new chapter for him. Broncos fans and players are hungry – we’ve had a bit of a drought the past few years and it’s time to get the Broncos back to where they’re meant to be. »

–Jimmy Garoppolo (QB, 49ers) is recovering as expected from his shoulder surgery. According to ESPN, the target date of early July is still relevant when it comes to the resumption of throws.

Rumors

– According to titaninsider.com, Amani Hooker (S) and the Titans have entered into preliminary discussions regarding an extension. The safety enters the last year of his rookie contract.

– The Cowboys and Dalton Schultz (TE) are still a long way from finding common ground. Absent from his team’s spring activities to mark his dissatisfaction, the 26-year-old tight end is still waiting for a proposal from the Texas franchise.

otherwise

Matt Adams (LB, Bears) was arrested for illegal possession of a firearm. According to TMZ, the linebacker was spotted near a reported stolen Jeep. The player claimed to be the new owner of the vehicle and it was during the search that officers found a loaded handgun, an additional high capacity magazine and armor piercing bullets. Adams did have a license, but it was not issued by the state of Illinois. His court hearing is scheduled for August 24.

Justin Jefferson (WR, Vikings): “I want to be a Hall of Famer”

After only two seasons with the pros, the Vikings receiver already has high hopes for the young rest of his career. His goal: to mark history and obtain a gold jacket, as well as a bronze bust in the showcase of the Canton Museum.

“I want to accomplish so many things,” Jefferson said. “It’s an endless list. But at the end of the day, I want to be a Hall of Famer. So to get there, there’s so much I need to accomplish, so much more I need to put in place to improve and really learn. I can’t wait to see how far I can go. »

The 23-year-old receiver could already make history this year. He only needs 1,148 yards in 2022 to overtake Randy Moss (4,163 yards from 1998 to 2000) and become the player with the most yards gained in his first 3 seasons. An achievable goal, driven by the system change instigated by new head coach Kevin O’Connell.

“Our offensive style is no longer a run-based attack. We are just able to put different people in different positions and distribute the ball. I’m so excited about this attack. We want to see how this season is going to go for us. »

Russell Wilson visiting the French Riviera

Enjoying his last days of relaxation before the start of Broncos training camp, Russell Wilson (QB) was passing through the Côte d’Azur.

He then went to AS Monaco’s training facilities to stretch his legs and throw a few balls.
