The New York Giants are set to sign free-agent safety Landon Collins. Collins was drafted by New York in 2015 and spent 4 seasons with them before signing a 6-year, $84 million deal with the Washington Commanders in 2019. Washington released him in June siting a foot injury that had put him on the IR since December of 2021. The 28-year-old will travel with the team to London for their next game against the Green Bay Packers.
New England Patriots backup quarterback Brian Hoyer, who had moved into the starting spot after Mac Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain, has been placed on the IR and will miss a minimum of 4 weeks. It seems that rookie Bailey Zappe will get the call going forward until one of the other 2 can make a return.
Just in case you were one of the millions of people that turned off the 12-9 in overtime, TNF game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos, let me fill you in on what you missed.....or more realistically what you didn't miss. The lackluster game featured in total, 7 field goals, 12 punts, 25 third-down stops, 4 interceptions and 6 fumbles. Probably also worth mentioning that none of those 6 fumbles were recovered by the defenses.
Albert Pujols saying that he seriously considered retiring early when he was in his slump during the month of June. Saying on Thursday during and interview with John Denton with MLB.com
"No, I did, I swear I did. There were some times when I (asked) myself that, many times. When you have good people around you and they are encouraging you and you realize that God has opened so many doors for you, man, it puts things back into perspective. I decided, 'I'm going to stick with it.' I knew sooner or later it was going to come and turn around for me because it can't be like it was all year long."
