SEATTLE (AP) — Russell Wilson is tired of getting hit. Tired of taking sacks.
His frustration is to the point that Wilson took time on Tuesday which was set aside to speak on winning the Walter Payton Man of the Year award to address some of the issues he sees with the Seattle Seahawks going into the offseason.
At the top of Wilson’s list seems to be concerns with how he’s been protected, and the fact through nine years he’s taken 394 sacks in the regular season.
NEW YORK (AP) — Frank Gore reached a milestone on his final carry of the game — and maybe of his career.
The 37-year-old New York Jets running back has a bruised lung that coach Adam Gase said Monday will keep Gore out of the season finale at New England on Sunday.
In a year impacted by a pandemic and social unrest, NFL players have spoken out and stepped up. On Thursday, the league revealed the 32 finalists for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award, and each of them has played a significant role away from the field.
“In early 2020 I looked myself in the mirror and asked myself if I was doing enough, and that answer was no," said Dolphins defensive back Byron Jones.
