Eli Manning was watching TV on March 12 Antworten

when he saw the breaking news that the Giants had traded receiver Odell Beckham Jr. “I just came across the [tracker] at the bottom of the screen ,” Manning said, via Michael Eisen of the team website. “Started to get a few texts. That is how I found out. The reaction, I wanted to reach out to him. Odell has been a teammate for five years and has been a friend. These circumstances, you think about the player involved. It is more than just a player; it is someone you have a relationship with. You think more about that person, how they are handling it and that they are OK and doing well with it.”Manning said he and Beckham — both of whom attended Isidore Newman School in New Orleans — have communicated since the trade. “I think after being in the NFL for 16 years, I don’t think there are a whole lot of surprises anymore,” Manning said. “You learn to deal with everything. You learn to adjust. You move on and do my job, do it to the best of my ability and get the players that are here up to speed. That is the great thing about football. I am excited about the players that we have and the additions that we have made. Get everyone up to speed and on the same page. Keep moving forward.”Beckham, 26, averaged 78 catches, 1,095 yards and almost nine touchdowns a season in his five seasons with the Giants. Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard now become the team’s top wideouts, with Saquon Barkley at running back and Evan Engram at tight end.“Guys have to step up,” Manning said. “We have good players on this team. Talented receivers and running backs. We played the last four, five games of the season without [Beckham]. We were able to score points and move the ball. He is a tremendous player and was a tremendous player for us. There are certain things that he can do that not everyone can do, but we still have guys that can play and help us be a tremendous offense and score a lot of points.” John Dorsey has his second pre-draft press conference as GM of the Browns Britton Colquitt Jersey , just one week before the 2019 NFL Draft." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteDawgs EDTShareTweetShareShareNotes from Cleveland Browns’ pre-draft press conference with GM John Dorsey On Thursday, just a one week before the start of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns held their annual pre-draft press conference, featuring general manager John Dorsey.Here are the notes I took:What About Duke Johnson?The first nine questions asked by reporters were about RB Duke Johnson, prompting Dorsey to laugh and say, “Y’all want to talk about the draft?”When he did comment on Johnson, though Dorsey said “we see a lot of stuff for Duke moving forward ... and I look forward to seeing him on the field on Sundays.” Dorsey also said that Johnson understands the role he is going to play for the Browns, and his trade request will not change their mentality on him being a vital part of their offense this season.Johnson has not been participating in Phase 1 of the team’s offseason workout programs, which are voluntary. But he expects Johnson to be present when the minicamps come around, even though they haven’t talked about that.What to do During the 1st Round of the DraftThe Browns traded away their No. 17 overall pick this offseason, leaving them without a first-round pick. What are their plans for the first round?This Monday and Tuesday, the team will start talking about which prospects they might be willing to trade up into the first round for if they are still available at a certain point.Due diligence for any year involves talking to teams in general about how much it would cost to move up, so Dorsey said yes, of course he will do that in advance with teams picking in the back half of the first round.For the draft in general, they usually spend about three days playing hypothetical games:Positions Deep in This Year’s Draft & SafetyAsked about which positions are the strongest in this year’s class, Dorsey named defensive line and wide receiver as being deep. He then started rattling off running back and quarterback depth being deep Tyrod Taylor Jersey , and added the safety depth is more than in years past.Speaking of safety, Dorsey was asked about the additions of Eric Murray and Morgan Burnett. Dorsey said he believes Burnett still plays at the level of a starting-caliber strong safety:Playing Down Jeffrey Simmons?There have been some rumors that the Browns really like DT Jeffrey Simmons, whose stock is questionable due to a torn ACL. Dorsey was asked about whether he would take Simmons at No. 49. Dorsey said, “if he was there, you may think about it,” acting as if it’s not something they would jump over. Is Dorsey just playing coy, or is he really not considering him much? Remember, Simmons did come in for a visit, which Dorsey talked about:Other NotesRegarding RG Austin Corbett, Dorsey said, nothing is a given, but he thinks Corbett“is going to make tremendous strides here in the 2019 season.”Asked if the Browns need to add some juice to the wide receiver position, Dorsey pointed out that WR Antonio Callaway has some juice.He really likes the depth the team has at tight end right now.Here is what Dorsey said about second-year DE Chad Thomas: “Usually, guys in the first year into their second year make exponential strides and growth. I see him getting a lot of playing time this year. I could see him getting some rotational playing time and really developing into a really good football player.”RB Kareem Hunt has been hard at work: “I could not be happier with how hard he is working in the building. That is all you can ask of him. He is committed to doing the proper steps here in getting this thing moving forward.”
