Last year at a political rally in Alabama, Trump said: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b—h off the field right now. Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!’
In October, Pence attended a game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers, but he tweeted he left early because he would not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.
James has been working at strong safety during OTAs, but, per the team’s website, he’s expected to add to his portfolio as he gets comfortable at the professional level. Wherever he winds up come September, it’s a good bet that he’ll be in the starting lineup.
You can’t often make a highlight reel out of an offensive lineman’s career, but Nelson could be the closest that we’re going to get. As a college guard drafted sixth overall, Nelson comes into the league with nearly unprecedented expectations, but there are no flaws in his game, at least ones college defenses could have diagnosed.
Nelson, rookie second-round pick Braden Smith, Ryan Kelly returning from injury, Jack Mewhort returning from injury and Anthony Castonzo will look like a completely different offensive line than what the Colts had to start in Week 17 last year. With the protection of quarterback Andrew Luck as the team’s top priority, Indianapolis has embraced the value of a quality line.
In terms of trash talk, both on and off the field, and the ability to back up said trash talk, Jalen Ramsey is the closest thing we have to a Deion Sanders in today’s NFL. After two All-American seasons at Florida State, Ramsey declared for the draft early, was drafted as a top-five pick and has already been named a first-team All-Pro two years into his career. I don’t think he’s stopped talking since he walked in the door.
