I’m firmly against the general concept of public proposals, but in the case of this guy popping the question during Eagles celebrations I’ll make an exception:
Call me a hopeless romantic, but there’s just something special about a guy with a Revolutionary War haircut going down on one knee in the middle of the street to pop the question to his significant other while she’s holding a 40.
With the promotion of Jeremy Bates to offensive coordinator, the Jets are going to a true West Coast passing game after their personnel in 2017 forced them to go more Air Coryell-turned-Air Raid. Now that Josh McCown is a free agent, the top order of business is finding a QB to push New York forward in the new scheme.
Option A is using a chunk of their cap space to sign Kirk Cousins to a lucrative, long-term deal as their franchise QB. Option B is simply sitting back and taking the best QB available at No. 6 overall in the draft.
The Senators also received goalie Filip Gustavsson and the Penguins’ first-round draft pick this year as well as their third-round selection next year. Pittsburgh also acquired a pair of prospects — forward Vincent Dunn from Ottawa and forward Tobias Lindberg from Vegas — plus Ottawa’s third-round pick this year.
Vegas also received a fourth-round pick this year, and is retaining 40 percent of Brassard’s salary. According to the Penguins, Brassard is signed through next season with an average annual salary of $5 million.
Rutherford said when he had been asked previously about acquiring Brassard, “the answer’s always been, `No,’ because we really didn’t think we could figure out how to fit him under the cap.”
The 30-year-old Brassard had 18 goals and 20 assists in 58 games for the Senators this season. He has 159 goals and 261 assists in 702 regular-season games in 11 seasons with Columbus, the New York Rangers and the Senators.
