The Titans may be making an addition to their receiving corps.
Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that the team will have wide receiver Michael Campanaro in for a visit on Thursday. Zrebiec adds that the team has been in touch with Campanaro’s agent for a couple of weeks.
The Blazers finish up by hosting the Jazz, their strongest competitor for the No. 3 seed. If the Jazz win that game (Wed., 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN), they will hold the tiebreaker.
The Jazz have been one of the NBA’s strongest teams since Rudy Gobert returned to the lineup. If they were in the East, Utah might actually be rated as the best team right now and the pick to win the conference title. Unfortunately for the Jazz, they’re in the West.
That means they are likely staring at a second-round matchup against Houston or Golden State, if the first round goes according to plan.
Walford, originally drafted by the Raiders in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, played 44 games with 10 starts. He made 70 catches for 768 yards and six touchdowns in his career in Oakland.
Remember when McCarron was going to be traded to the Browns, and then when he was for sure going to sign with the Browns? But there went Smith to the Redskins, Tyrod Taylor to the Browns, Cousins to the Vikings, Keenum to the Broncos and Bradford to the Cardinals.
The starting jobs dried up in a hurry, save for the Bills, who ended up bailing him out. McCarron fought to be an unrestricted free agent. He gets his shot as a No. 1, but it’s probably the worst supporting QB situation of them all. He’s also not guaranteed to start over a drafted rookie, given his contract (two years and $10 million) is more like a backup’s.
“I want to be very clear,” Bernhard said. “I’m not taking credit for the Raiders. But [the report] was one of those little ripples in the process, and it concludes that, for many of the problems the NFL was concerned about, not only was Las Vegas not the problem, Las Vegas — and more generally, a regulated gaming industry — is actually the answer. Or at least, it’s better than underground bookies.”
Snyder, the former UNLV president who attended the first meeting, believes Bernhard is being overly humble and describes the report as being an early “catalyst” in bringing the Raiders to Las Vegas.
