I have been listening to AZ radio today and the way they talk about Hopkins makes it sound like this was a big diva. He basically only practices when he wants and is half assed about it. Seems like a me first guy. I don’t think that 15 would put up with a guy who wasn’t all in when it comes to working and trying to get better.
he is a long time vet
it would be interesting to see what he do when he has a legit QB
from a Revenge of the Birds post:
From a 1200-1400 yards a year receiver to…missing 8 games each season for a total of only 1300 yards over two seasons.
For a younger wide receiver, you can look at that as a setback. For a 31 year old Hopkins who’s had injury issues aplenty between his ankle, hamstring and a PED suspension …
… from a coaching/team standpoint, Hopkins was a disgruntled veteran player who wasn’t practicing and was not being a professional with publicly airing his desire to play for a new franchise almost WEEKLY …
he’s not the guy for KC … older, health issues, gonna want too much $$$, at least a bit of a diva (if fans are right, as per Saints, and the guy with RotB), and a suspension … nope, not the “high character” pro that BV and Reid prefer, and most of ’em are saying “good riddance”
I don’t think that 15 would put up with a guy who wasn’t all in when it comes to working and trying to get better
nor would Reid
we will know something 🙂
Chiefs could structure shit and see what sticks 🙂
it’ll boil down to guaranteed $$, always almost does
when you have all the money yo need
sometimes it comes down to WHO can get you a ring
the CHIEFS have been there 75 percent of the time over the last 4 years
he won’t take a deal significantly below market value, NFLPA frowns upon that
they hate Mahomes
so I read
agents and nflpa say mahomes deal is hurting them
that deal was a while back and everyone said it was crazy $$$ at the time. things change
w/o Pat’s deal it’s doubtful the recent QB deals would have 100-200 mil guaranteed, so imma call bullshit
And he’s only in year ONE of that deal. Nine more to go
I played this over and over Denise never took the hint
an awesome song
US got shit on , but I think it’s a damn good album. Very underrated
Bear helps itself to 60 cupcakes from Connecticut bakery, scares employees | AP News
A hungry black bear barged into the garage of a Connecticut bakery, scared several employees and helped itself to 60 cupcakes before ambling away.
Bakery owner Miriam Stephens wrote in an Instagram post that she heard employee Maureen Williams “screaming bloody murder” and yelling that there was a bear in the garage.
Williams told TV station WTNH that she shouted to scare the bear off but it retreated and came back three times.
the intro is long…
catch ’em while you can
Saturn’s iconic rings are disappearing | CNN
Saturn’s iconic icy rings may not be around for future skygazers to glimpse at through their telescopes, according to new research.
A new analysis of data captured by NASA’s Cassini mission, which orbited the gas giant planet between 2004 and 2017, has revealed new insights into how long the rings have been around and when they may vanish from sight.
(hint: not for awhile)
Pat Mahomes’ new theme song? 😉
Happy Friday AG!!! a holiday weekend
what this^^^ guy said
Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter
On a recent appearance on the “I Am Athlete” podcast, free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins listed the five QBs he’d most like to catch passes from: the Bills’ Josh Allen, the Eagles’ Jalen Hurts, the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, the Ravens’ Lamar Jackson and the Chargers’ Justin Herbert
well fuck – easy to like a winner!
don’t forget we still have BBQ (McRib w/pickles) riding on whether we sign DHop or not!
Didn’t see Rogers on the list…😂
you got it
that said, I’m a take mine w/o pickles, tyvm (just something horribly wrong about pickles on BBQ)
every BBQ place serves pickles with their stuff – I hate pickles, nevermind.
I hate pickles too. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could just take them off, but their disgusting juices infect everything they touch like some sort of horrible virus.
EWWWWWWW! . . . the juices
I love pickle juice
even better with Garlic 🙂
Pickle juice has saved my bacon more than once when I was out for a bike ride.
I just wished Pickles did not cost so much
almost like a dessert
my father in law used to pickle banana peppers
fricken awesome with almost everything
now that sounds disgusting
you’re crazy. Pickles are great
I love pickles
they are a vegetable
da hell is wrong with you?
Yeah, he apparently only likes contending QBs
a ring would be nice to have
Comments swear he’s in KC right now
so any money owed to him is paid by the cardinals
he could sign a new contract with anyone?
Yes. But if you read the article, it looks like we didn’t think he would get this far, and didn’t leave ourselves any wiggle room. Now, we could get Jones signed to an extension (damn good idea, anyway) and free up a chunk o’ moolah
I like the way you think!!!
Hearing his agent (not a sourced comment, just regular positioning) will want to wait on Quinnen Williams.
so Chris Jones is waiting on a deal for a Jets DT?
to see what the market is … ?
how much monet can the Jets spend after Rodgers and all the WR’s already signed
no clue … so lessee, they have Williams to re-sign, huh? oh yeah, then they gonna want Hopkins to go with their Shiny New QB … decisions, decision
They have a little over 6 million in space. Remember, they can spread that signing bonus out over the life of the contract
would be nice if Jones would take a little less than “max market money” like a certain 2x Super Winning QB is willing to do (if ya dig)
he already said he was not seeking aaron Donald money
Great Song / Band / Memories … ; )
we could get Jones signed to an extension (damn good idea, anyway) and free up a chunk o’ moolah
but how long does THAT last? cap hits are gonna come with any big money contract sooner or later (usually sooner) AND we have C & RG to extend soon (and maybe LG?)
So you suggest let everyone walk? Pursue no one? Just pay Patrick and surround him with schlubs?
no, just have to be careful who you keep and for how much, etc
do you think Kelce’s a scrub player? Toney / Moore? Fortson? Thuney? Tranquill?
keep Jones, yes … but glad we didn’t keep Clark (ROI and all that)
I trust Veach. If it works that’s because it doesn’t mess us up for the future
we have a ton of cap
2024 52 million
2025 124 million
2026 228 million
Hey Steve, drop by the morning huddle tomorrow. We’re up at 5 am. get some coffee and join us!
you mistake me for someone that rises early for other than work
Morning Huddle is around all day, drop on by
you see me when I can spend time here
ok, fuck you then, don’t come by
I do AG on my desktop
which is in my house
which is not an IPhone
Trust me, it’s still there at noon
noon today I was repointing a satelite dish in Belton
3 pm I was pointing a dish in Lone Jack
without beer this fricken pirate cannot literally function mentally
a ton of cap
that’s wonderful … for NEXT season (and beyond)
Has there been any talks between the 2 parties? A deal like that takes weeks or even months to hammer out. I haven’t heard any news that Jones and KC were in talks
Hey Saints, drop by the Morning Huddle tomorrow, we’re around all day
If I am up that early
I usually drop[ by around noon, still plenty active
looks like you got a jump on the comment count 👀
it’s something all right
make up for last week
anyway, Rip will like it
and you got nothing left for Sunday
Not that I’m aware of. I thought they backed out, thinking he’d be traded. As for Jones, it doesn’t HAVE to get done, unless we want to free up the money. But I’ve heard nothing there, either
I was talking about Jones. I haven’t heard any movement between the the two. Something like that would have to take place if there was any hope of signing Hopkins. That is why I don’t think they could get anything done unless these talks were done in total secret
secret treaties are hard to do when you have no idea WHO is involved
My understanding is they have been talking, so I’m sure the basic framework has at least been discussed. I’m sure they aren’t starting from zero. We don’t know that DHop is in any hurry, either.
both sides been waiting for other DT deals to finish, need a baseline
can he play Fullback 🙂
The way we play it, probably
unless Hopkins plays for some truly “dirt cheap” money I can’t see bringing him in … even then, he’d be getting reps that could go to Toney, Moore, Ross, etc and that would interfere with THEIR development
and they are, after all, the future of the Chiefs WR corps
well he would probably be a rental type player like Juju was
so I doubt he would interfere with any developement
he could be that piece this year for winning LVIII
was hoping Juju was gonna be more than a “rental” … and woulda loved to keep “at the right price” … he seemed to be pretty integral over the season
I’m always partial to building a team thru the draft as much as possible, as opposed to spending on FA’s for a year (or two)
that said, it’s BV’s call (in consultation with Big Red and Clark, of course)
that’s it … maybe Hopkins goes to the Jets and can square off against Ramsey 2x/year … just like old times
