Patriots have a tough choice to make now regarding QB. Either they trade their way up in the draft or they sign a free agent not that there’s many about.

Vonn Miller the Broncos pass rusher has tested positive for corona virus. I am sure he will be fine.

edit: Just reading that Miller has asthma which might complicate matters.

Yeah has potential to be one of the best sports documentaries about... what a player but I'd say he's some p***k!

I read his book a few years ago, he comes across as a pr*ck in it alright, but his winning mentality dictated that behaviour.  Really looking forward to this. 
I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack...

Last Dance first thoughts - MJ looks a sick man

Very slick wish I could binge watch all of it... It's been very tame from him so far by and large but I'm sure we'll get to see some of the temper tantrums as things unfold.

I just thought they looked much worse in the first episode anyway

Sounds like (an unretired) Gronk may be joining Brady in Tampa - if a trade can be worked out

That is a big deal pulled off by the Bucs. They are genuine superbowl contenders now.

Staying with the NFL, the first round of the draft is on thursday night/friday morning. It will be the only sport of interest to be broadcast in the near future. I am really looking forward to it as the vikings have 2 first round picks.

Loving The Last Dance. It's riveting stuff.

Think Brady is washed but the Bucs have a strong roster. Gronk will need to be awesome though (moreso as a blocker than a pass catcher) and while the rest will do him good, having to bulk up and be game conditioned isn't simple. I guess he has time.
