    2019 NFL schedule release: Ten juicy revenge games on tap

    Professional athletes are a prideful lot. Setbacks can be crushing -- especially when the stink of defeat, of disappointment, of injustice is allowed to linger for an entire offseason.

    As we get our first look at the 2019 NFL regular-season schedule, let's put a spotlight on games that will allow players and teams the opportunity to settle some old scores. Yes, let's dig into the ancient art of revenge.

    New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Rams
    Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 15 at 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX


    The Saints and their fans will never get over the blown pass-interference call that kept the Rams alive in last season's NFC Championship Game. How could you blame them? It was arguably the most impactful and egregious official mishap in NFL history. You do not want to be on the wrong side of that kind of history. Typically, you want matchups involving premier teams occurring deeper into the NFL schedule, but the circumstances here make this a sooner-the-better situation. In a just world, the Saints would get the chance to deliver revenge at the Superdome, a.k.a. The Scene Of The Crime. Perhaps they'll get that opportunity in January. For now, an early statement win in L.A. would register as a solid opening salvo.

    Cleveland Browns at New York Jets
    Week 2: Monday, Sept. 16 at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN


    Bakermania was born on Sept. 20, 2018. The Browns -- riding an absurd losing streak that lasted 635 days -- were 0-1-1 and barely showing a pulse against the Jets. Late in the first half, starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor went out with a head injury, and Baker Mayfield seized both the starting job and the hearts of Clevelanders forever. The home team's 21-17 win served as the official start of an era of hope for the Browns and their long-suffering fans, while the Jets stumbled to a 4-12 finish that led to Todd Bowles' dismissal as coach. Enter Adam Gase and a much-improved Jets roster led by promising second-year QB Sam Darnold, the player everyone thought the Browns were going to take with the first overall pick last April, until Cleveland went with Mayfield instead. The Meadowlands will be rocking on Monday night.

    Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs
    Week 5: Sunday, Oct. 6 at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC


    The Colts are still probably trying to figure out what happened in last January's Divisional Round at Arrowhead Stadium. Indianapolis looked like the proverbial Team That No One Wants To Play after manhandling the Texans in its postseason opener. But by the end of the first quarter in Kansas City, the Colts were down 14-0 and outgained 185-12 in yards. Andrew Luck and Co. never threatened in the eventual 31-13 defeat. Will Luck fare better against a Chiefs defense in transition? We shall see.

    Eli Manning vs. New England Patriots
    Week 6: Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8:20 p.m. ET on FOX/NFL Network/Amazon


    We'll find out in a week if the Giants use one of their first-round picks to add a quarterback, but for the time being, we'll operate as if Eli Manning will remain under center for another season at the Meadowlands. No matter what happens, it remains very possible -- probable, even -- that this is Eli's final rodeo with the G-Men. If so, this matchup in Foxborough will mark the final time we'll see Eli's Giants face the Patriots.

    The history here is obvious. Eli has appeared in two Super Bowls, earning MVP honors both times with comeback wins over the Patriots. One can imagine a voracious pounding of this faded version of Peyton's little brother will provide some solace to fans along the Mass Pike, but let's face it: The Pats could sack Manning 10 times and win by 40 points in this one, and it won't change the fact that Eli's funny mug will always be the biggest blemish on the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick dynasty. The only real chance at revenge for New England is another Super Bowl showdown ... can't see that happening, though.

    Earl Thomas vs. Seattle Seahawks
    Week 7: Sunday, Oct. 7 at 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX


    The Seahawks were not willing to give Earl Thomas the long-term deal he believed he deserved. The star safety sat out all of training camp and the preseason, then suffered a season-ending leg injury in Week 4. As he was carted off the field, Thomas made his disgust with the Seahawks' decision-makers clear, raising his right arm and extending a middle finger at his own sideline. It was an ignominious end to what had been a brilliant run in Seattle, including six Pro Bowl nods and a Super Bowl ring in nine seasons. Thomas is now the crown jewel of the Baltimore Ravens' secondary. You think he'll be amped to be hitting humans wearing Seahawks helmets in his return to Seattle?

    Case Keenum vs. Minnesota Vikings
    Week 8: Thursday, Oct. 24 at 8:20 p.m. ET on FOX/NFL Network/Amazon


    Keenum was disappointed -- and, one imagines, a little bit hurt -- when the Vikings allowed him to walk as a free agent after the 2017 season. After all, Keenum had just enjoyed a career campaign with them, and his walk-off touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs to beat the Saints in the Divisional Round might be the greatest moment in franchise history. But Minnesota opted for a fresh start with Kirk Cousins, who received a contract that dwarfed the deal Keenum would eventually sign with the Broncos. Keenum is in Washington now after going 6-10 with a TD-to-INT ratio of 18:15 in his one season in Denver, and there's no guarantee he'll be behind center when he returns to Minnesota in October. If he is, he gets a prime-time stage on which to stick it to the team that didn't think he was good enough to get them over the top. Delicious.

    Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles
    Week 9: Sunday, Nov. 3 at 1 p.m. ET on FOX


    Last season was something of a rebirth for Bears football. This exciting new reality in Chicago made kicker Cody Parkey's double-doink in the wild card loss to the Eagles at Soldier Field all the more painful. Parkey won't be around to exact any revenge -- any chance he had at redemption in Chicago surely ended when he expounded upon his disappointment to Hoda Kotb (as one does) -- but the rest of the Bears can strike back at a Philadelphia team that rudely cancelled their coming out party.

    Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys
    Week 13: Thursday, Nov. 28 at 4:30 p.m. ET on CBS


    OK, OK -- we don't imagine the members of the 2019 Bills are holding onto Buffalo's lopsided losses to the Cowboys in Super Bowl XXVII and XXVIII. We can't imagine the Bills' collection of millennials dwells on defeats that occurred before "Friends" premiered. That said, there are thousands upon thousands of Bills fans who will always resent America's Team because of those two games, and this Thanksgiving matchup will be just the second nationally televised game between these teams since their last Super Bowl matchup. Something tells me the turkey will be served early this year in Western New York.

    Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots
    Week 14: Sunday, Dec. 8 at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS


    AFC Championship Game. Overtime. 31-31. The Patriots win the toss, take possession of the ball, and Tom Brady leads New England on a 75-yard touchdown drive to clinch another Super Bowl berth. NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes never steps off the sideline in the extra period. You could say Mahomes has remained chained there all through the winter. True revenge occurs if and when the Chiefs can get past the Patriots and the rest of the AFC to make their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years. A December road win in Foxborough could go a long way toward helping them achieve that goal.

    Le'Veon Bell vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
    Week 16: Sunday, Dec. 22 at 1 p.m. ET on CBS


    Le'Veon Bell didn't believe the Steelers properly valued what he meant to their offense. He told them he wouldn't play until they did. Usually, these things end with one of the sides blinking, but this was not your average contract impasse. The Steelers didn't budge, and Bell opted to sit out the entire 2018 campaign. Bell got his freedom, signed a huge deal with the Jets and will get an opportunity to stick it to his old franchise in a game that could have huge implications for both teams. It's hard to say who wants revenge against whom here. Let's call this the ultra-rare Double Revenge Game. Fun!

    Wilson looking at next decade after new deal with Seahawks
    April 17, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    RENTON, Wash. (AP) When Russell Wilson and his representatives started negotiations with the Seattle Seahawks on a contract extension, they were looking far beyond five more seasons.

    Having turned 30 late last season, Wilson tried to project into the next decade and the chances of playing his entire career with one team.

    ''The next deal was going to be the place where, `Hey, if we're going to be in Seattle, wherever it's going to be, I want to make sure that's where I'm going to be for the next 10-12 years hopefully,''' Wilson said Wednesday, a day after signing the $140 million, four-year contract extension that made him the highest-paid player in the NFL. ''That was kind of my mindset, from (age) 30 to 40. And then you reassess, you add on, and everything else. But the reality was for the next 10 years.''

    His new deal will cover half that 10-year window. He has the highest yearly average salary at $35 million per season. He has the highest signing bonus ($65 million) and guaranteed money ($107 million) in league history. He's under contract through the 2023 season.

    The negotiations wrapped up just before midnight as Monday clicked over into Tuesday. It was the deadline Wilson set for getting a long-term extension done before accepting the likelihood he had only three more seasons in Seattle.

    The deadline was real in Wilson's mind.

    ''I have an obsession with football. I just want to play the game. I just want to be able to focus on that. I remember the first time, (with) the other contract, it was one of those things that took us all the way to the summertime, right before training camp - literally to 11:50 that night and everything else. The next day, we were practicing,'' Wilson said. ''For me, and for everyone involved really, the whole organization, it was really more so of a `Hey, let's make sure we don't have to drag out this whole process.'''

    All sides agreed the previous negotiations dragged on for far too many months. General manager John Schneider said the negotiations should have been wrapped up before reaching the cusp of training camp in 2015.

    This negotiation went almost to the deadline before an agreement was reached. Wilson guessed it was about 11:50 p.m. Monday when he got the phone call from agent Mark Rodgers. The deal was done and only needed the quarterback's approval.

    The no-trade clause, which means Wilson must approve any possible deal, was the final kicker.

    ''We talked about the idea of a no-trade clause just because we really wanted to be here. That was the thing we were really excited about and that's kind of what sealed the deal for us. I was really fired up about it,'' Wilson said.

    That wasn't the case several hours earlier. Wilson showed up for the first day of Seattle's offseason workouts Monday and he left the facility that afternoon uncertain whether he would return the next day with a new deal. There had been progress in the negotiations but no guarantees of reaching an agreement. Wilson and coach Pete Carroll spoke before the QB left the building.

    ''We said, listen we're getting there, that's for sure. ... I wasn't concerned because I knew at that point it was going to be what it's going to be and hopefully it was here and hopefully we could do something special,'' Wilson.

    While the day was mostly celebratory, there was a twinge of sadness Wednesday as well. Wilson's deal was the first major signing by the team since the passing of owner Paul Allen last fall. Schneider became choked up briefly, saying, ''This is a day that Paul Allen would have been extremely proud of,'' and later recalled a story of the day Wilson was drafted in 2012.

    ''Paul called in and was like, `So you took the little guy huh?' And I was like, `Yeah, I did, I did Paul. We did. We did.' And he just hung up,'' Schneider recalled. ''I gave the phone back to Pete and he was like, `What did he say?' and I was like, `He didn't say anything, man.' He was super fired up.''

    Wilson, Carroll and Schneider all praised the involvement of Allen's sister, Jody, the chairman of the Seahawks organization, in making sure one of the centerpieces of Seattle's success over the past seven seasons wasn't going anywhere.

    ''Russ has ignited an energy about the games that we play and the style from the offensive side,'' Carroll said. ''I thought it was really important for us. We think we have a really good team and we're really fired up about it, and to be able to maintain this continuity was extremely important for us.''

    Garoppolo recovering well from major left knee injury
    April 18, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Jimmy Garoppolo has resumed throwing and taking drop backs as he rehabilitates from a major knee injury that derailed his first full season as San Francisco's starting quarterback.

    The process of coming back is going smoothly and Garoppolo hopes to be able to take part in seven-on-seven drills when the 49ers begin OTAs next month and be fully cleared by the time training camp starts in late July.

    Once the season begins Sept. 8 in the opener at Tampa Bay, Garoppolo believes the only difference will be the brace he will wear on his surgically repaired left knee.

    ''I wore one initially as a rookie,'' he said. ''Then, I kind of got away from it. I think this year it's a certainty. But, we'll see how it goes down the road.''

    Garoppolo said he doesn't believe the brace will impact his mobility a bit since the new ones are so lightweight that it's almost ''like you're not wearing anything sometimes.''

    The 49ers are counting on Garoppolo being back to the player he was when they acquired him during the 2017 season from New England and he won his first five starts with the team to end that season.

    He was rewarded with a five-year, $137.5 million contract that offseason to be San Francisco's franchise quarterback only to go down with the season-ending ACL injury in a Week 3 loss at Kansas City last season.

    ''I think initially probably was the hardest part, the acceptance of everything,'' he said. ''The first couple weeks, really, you can't put any weight on it with the meniscus and all that stuff. Probably the first month or two was the worst. But, after that, you get running and everything and you start to feel like yourself again.''

    Garoppolo was helped in his rehab by the fact that running back Jerick McKinnon tore his ACL earlier in September and was a good guide and partner during the process that has continued throughout the offseason.

    Garoppolo said it took some time to get the trust back in his knee, but now feels comfortable running and throwing the ball.

    ''It's encouraging,'' he said. ''Every day gets easier and easier. Able to make this throw better than I was a week ago. It's small victories like that. Throughout the whole process, it's all about small victories because you're not going to jump out and be able to throw it 60, 70 yards again. Small victories.''

    Having a healthy Garoppolo and McKinnon will be key this season for the 49ers, who are coming off a 4-12 season in coach Kyle Shanahan's second year with the team.

    Shanahan let the players know as they gathered this week for the start of the offseason program that improvement is necessary.

    ''His big thing was the past couple of years we really needed to get the culture and everything,'' defensive lineman DeForest Buckner said. ''He feels like the culture is here and we have the talent. Now we have to go out and execute. We had setbacks on the way, especially last year. We had big expectations for the team and we didn't achieve those expectations and those goals.''

    Buckner was one of the few bright spots for the Niners last season with a career-high 12 sacks. The seventh overall pick in the 2016 draft proved he was a foundation piece for the 49ers.

    Now the team will have to start planning on how to keep Buckner. He is eligible for a contract extension this summer if the 49ers want to lock him up long term before he can become a free agent following the 2020 season.

    ''We had conversations here and there,'' Buckner said. ''It's very early. Just because I'm eligible for a new contract going into my fourth year, it's still very early in the process.''

    NFL draft draws record numbers in Nashville and on TV
    April 29, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    The NFL draft drew record numbers both on site and on television.

    The league said Monday that more than 600,000 attended over the three days in Nashville, easily eclipsing the 250,000 that came to watch two years ago in Philadelphia.

    Nielsen reports that the draft on ESPN, ABC and NFL Network averaged 6.1 million viewers at any given time over the three days. The draft averaged 5.5 million viewers last year, which was the first time all seven rounds were on broadcast television.

    The average numbers were up despite the ratings for Thursday's first round being flat. The combined average for the three networks was 11.1 million, which was down from last year's 11.2 million. The ABC broadcast averaged 4.5 million, which was up 21 percent from last year's 3.7 million that watched on Fox.

    ''By every metric - from the hundreds of thousands of fans who filled the streets of Nashville to the record-breaking ratings and viewership - this event was an unqualified success,'' Peter O'Reilly, the NFL's executive vice president for club business and league events, said in an email.

    Next year's draft is slated to take place in Las Vegas and will be the first significant event hosted by the Raiders in their new home city. The Raiders will play their final season in Oakland this year before moving to Nevada.
