Vinny Curry misses 2021 NFL Season

The injuries for the Jets do not stop. Following the rupture of DE Carl Lawson’s Achilles tendon, Curry will have the same fate, and both will be out for a season. The defense of those led by Robert Saleh is in serious trouble by 2021. Can they overcome these heavy casualties?

Panthers send Denzel Perryman to Raiders

During this offseason Carolina signed linebacker Denzel Perryman under a contract of 2 years and 6 MDD, however, his stay in the team did not last long. This Wednesday night, via Adam Schefter from ESPN, it was confirmed that the Panthers sent Perryman and a 2022 seventh-round pick to the Raiders in exchange for a sixth-round pick next year. The deal is pending a physical exam.

The graduate of the University of Miami played his first six seasons as a professional with the Chargers and has accumulated 349 tackles and 5 sacks in 69 games played so far. Now, he will join the Raiders with Gus Bradley, who is currently Las Vegas’ defensive coordinator, but prior to that he had the same role with Los Angeles from 2017 to 2020.

The 28-year-old Perryman is back in AFC West, and will be looking to climb rungs on the Raiders depth chart, or even fill the starting job of Nicholas Morrow, who suffered a foot injury last week in practice. jointly with the Rams, and HC Joe Gruden noted that he will be out for an indefinite period.

Buccaneers will implement their own protocols against COVID-19

Heading into the 2021 season there is one thing that is certain, the security protocols against COVID-19 that were agreed between the NFL and NFLPA are a little more flexible than those of last season. However, the HC of Tampa Bay, Bruce Arians, does not want to take any risk, so he has decided to create his own regulations on the subject.

Arians said yesterday at a press conference that for this year the Buccaneers will implement their own protocols related to the pandemic, and stressed that they will be very similar to those of 2020. The main difference against the current ones: Tampa Bay players, vaccinated or no, they will not be allowed to leave the team hotel or receive family visits during away games.

“For us, life is not normal,” Arians said. “We are practically under the same protocols as last year (…). Once we hit 53, even this weekend, our guys will make a lot of sacrifices that have to be made now. Families in the hotel, all those things are out of the question. There are league rules and then there are my rules (…). I don’t give a shit if they’re vaccinated or not. They won’t go anywhere [los jugadores]”.

This decision by Arians is probably a consequence of what happened to his kicker Ryan Succop, who was fully vaccinated, but tested positive for COVID-19 after a dinner he had with members of the Titans – his former team – last weekend week. NFL rules currently state that fully vaccinated players can interact with vaccinated family and friends during away games, however that will not apply to the Buccaneers this season.

We will add some more plays for him tomorrow and see how he handles it, “he concluded.

Rosen’s job with Atlanta will be to overtake Arkansas quarterback Feleipe Franks for the QB2 spot behind Matt Ryan.
