After being exposed to Covid-19, Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis will miss the last preseason game for the Buffalo Bills.

Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis will miss the last preseason game for the Buffalo Bills after testing positive for Covid-19. Cole Beasley has been outspoken in his opposition to the coronavirus vaccine. Buffalo Bills wide receivers Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis will miss the final preseason game for the team after being deemed close contracts of a training staff member who has tested positive for Covid-19.
After being revealed, veteran defensive tackle Star Lotulelei was also sent home.
According to reports, all three players have tested negative, but they must go through the league’s’re-entry process’ for the next five days because they have not been vaccinated.
Vaccinated players who have been exposed can practice as long as they have negative tests, but the Buffalo trio will miss the week of practice and the team’s last preseason game on Saturday against the Green Bay Packers.
According to ESPN, the trainer, who has not been identified, was completely vaccinated.
Beasley has been outspoken in his opposition to vaccination, even producing an anti-vaccine rap song recently.
On Sunday, September 12th, the Bills will host the Pittsburgh Steelers to kick off their 2021/22 season.
Cam Newton was recently required to go through the NFL’s five-day re-entry process for unvaccinated players. Due to a mix-up with the NFL’s new Covid-19 requirements, Newton will not be able to train with the club until Thursday.
Newton, backed by the Patriots, left the New England area on Saturday for a medical appointment and continued to test negative for Covid-19 on a regular basis.
“Because to a misunderstanding about testing taken outside of NFL facilities, and as mandated by the NFL-NFLPA standards, Cam will be subjected to the five-day entrance cadence procedure before returning to the facility,” the Patriots said in a statement.
“Cam will continue to participate virtually in team activities until Thursday, August 26 when he returns to the club.”

Urban Meyer of the Jaguars has a deadline to name either Trevor Lawrence or Gardner Minshew as the starting quarterback.

When Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell say that rookie and first-round draft pick Trevor Lawrence isn’t a certainty to be the team’s starting quarterback over Gardner Minshew when the Jaguars open the regular season against the Houston Texans on Sept. 1, practically no one believes them.
Meyer told reporters on Friday that he’s still talking about the depth chart with Bevell and passing-game coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, and that he thinks he knows when he’ll make his final decision for Week 1.
Meyer told ESPN’s Michael DiRocco, “I do [have a timeline] in my head, but it’s a daily dialogue that the three individuals are having.”
“It could [continue until the last preseason game], but I’d rather not.”
To prevent injury concerns, coaches throughout the NFL are expected to bench their starters that weekend.
Meyer said he’ll select which of his two best quarterbacks will start Monday’s exhibition game against the New Orleans Saints on Saturday.
Meyer appears to be seeking to boost Minshew’s trade market value through a competition that few are taking seriously.
Nevertheless, given that this is the same coach who felt giving Tim Tebow reps at tight end this summer wasn’t a complete waste of time, everyone should think he’s serious about anointing Minshew as the starting quarterback before Labor Day.

The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly made their final contract offer to Jamal Adams and are ‘not budge’ on the agreement.

The Seattle Seahawks are gearing up for the start of the 2021 NFL season, and if Jamal Adams rejects the team’s newest contract offer, a standoff between the two parties might extend until next offseason.
Seattle paid a high price for Adams in 2020, sending two first-round picks to the New York Jets in exchange for the All-Pro safety.
Adams had a strong first season with the organization, and the two sides wanted to sign a long-term contract before the end of his contract year.
But, the two parties’ talks have come to a halt.
The front office of Seattle already thought it had overspent its budget, but the star defense was not thrilled with the proposals.
With the start of Week 1 approaching, things may be reaching a tipping point.
According to Adam Jude and Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, the Seahawks have made their last offers to Adams.
If he doesn’t accept, the team won’t move any further. It’s worth noting that Adams hasn’t declared he won’t play until a new contract is signed.
Jamal Adams’ 2020 stats: 59 solo tackles, 14 quarterback hits, 11 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks Will the Seahawks re-sign Jamal Adams?
Seattle knew going into the talks that one of the finest players in the league had clout with the team.
When a team trades multiple first-round picks for a star on the verge of a new contract, the star gains negotiating leverage.
According to reports, the Seahawks are willing to offer him the highest-paid safety in the league.
Adams could make $17.5 million each season in annual compensation over four seasons, with $38 million guaranteed, according to the team’s final offer.
There’s a reason Seattle isn’t willing to raise its offer, according to reports.
Bobby Wagner, the team’s heart and a long-time leader in the locker room, is paid $18 million every season.
Seattle does not want Wagner to earn less than Adams, according to Jude and Condotta.
According to the Seattle Times, Russell Wilson is willing to change his contract in order to give Adams greater flexibility in negotiating a new contract.
In addition, Seattle is reportedly delaying meaningful talks with left tackle Duane Brown until Adams’ situation is resolved.
The franchise tag is in Seattle’s back pocket.
Adams, a top free agent in 2022, is expected to receive the exclusive franchise tag for $12.4 million.
If the two sides can’t come to an agreement on a long-term contract, he’ll be eligible for the tag again, which will cost around $15 million.
But, this creates a larger schism between this franchise and one of its most important actors.
Given Wilson’s offseason controversy and Brown’s new contract issues, the Seahawks will need to settle something out quickly or things may get ugly.

Next year’s Challenge Cup final will be held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium rather than Wembley Stadium.

The 2022 rugby league Challenge Cup final will be held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium instead of Wembley Stadium on May 28, according to the RFL.
“The RFL is happy to welcome a two-year extension to Betfred’s association with the Men’s, Women’s, and Wheelchair Challenge Cups – which will include an historic Final at the great Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in May 2022, before a return to Wembley Stadium in 2023,” according to a statement from the RFL.
“The 2022 Betfred Challenge Cup Final will be held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, May 28. It will be the 121st Challenge Cup Final, and the first to be held in May since St Helens defeated Wigan in Cardiff in 2004.
“It will be the first Rugby League match in the state-of-the-art, 62,850-capacity stadium – England’s third largest football stadium, which opened in April 2019 – following the cancellation of a Test match scheduled for the 2020 Ashes Series between England and Australia due to the Covid-19 outbreak.”
“In 2023, the Betfred Challenge Cup Final will be held at Wembley Stadium.”
Since the daring decision to bring the game’s greatest occasion to the city for the first time in 1929, that will be the 80th Challenge Cup Final at Wembley.”

J.J. Watt is projected to make the Cardinals’ 53-man roster. Watt is a foregone conclusion, but who is vying for the final two spots?

This summer, the Cardinals were one of the more active teams.
They recruited veterans to improve the offensive and defensive lines, as well as increasing competition at numerous important spots including as linebacker, cornerback, and guard. As the team reports to camp in Tempe on Tuesday, let’s see what the roster will look like when the final preseason cuts are made by August.
31.Quarterback (2): Kyler Murray The Cardinals appear to be in better position with their quarterback depth this year; McCoy is as seasoned a backup as there is in the league. Arizona might try to put Streveler on the practice squad if it needs a roster spot for a special-teams player or another linemen.Running back (4): Chase Edmonds
Last year, just three running backs made the Cardinals’ 53-man roster out of training camp, but this summer could see more competition.
