For the second straight year, the Steelers have applied the franchise tag to running back Le’Veon Bell. For the second straight year, the Steelers and Bell possibly won’t get a long-term deal Demarcus Walker Womens Jersey done before the mid-July deadline.

Of course, the 49ers are set with their starting quarterback after locking Garoppolo into a long-term deal. The key here is their backup: while Beathard wasn’t great in his five starts last season, San Francisco thought enough of him to make him their third-round pick in last year’s draft. The 49ers will expect Beathard to be a solid backup QB for at least a couple more years on his cheap rookie contract.
When a team has the reigning Super Bowl MVP as its backup, it has the best quarterback situation in the NFL. Only two scenarios could knock the Eagles off this perch: One is Wentz failing to recover from the knee injury that cut short his 2017 season; the other is a team actually offering Philadelphia what it would take to trade for Foles.
Nagy referenced injuries to quarterback Carson Wentz and others by saying the Eagles had some down times that they fought through by sticking together as the year unfolded.
As we get into who we are as a team, I want them to understand there’s going to be ups and downs, Nagy said, via the team’s website. It’s going to be a roller coaster. You usually don’t go 16-0 and win every game and ride off into the sunset. When bad things happen, when adversity strikes, how do you react to that? The great teams will respond in the right way. They’ll have a bunch of leaders on the team that stick together, a bunch of coaches that stick together, that get through that, and they roll.
The Bears have not advanced to the postseason since 2010 and last had a winning record in 2012, so it’s a long stretch of down times that Nagy will be working to undo when the players arrive on Tuesday.
