Reggie Wayne and the New England Patriotshave reached agreement on a one-year deal, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Wayne had 64 receptions for 779 yards and two touchdowns last season for the Indianapolis Colts, but the team announced in March it would not be re-signing the 14-year veteran whom they selected in the first round of the 2001 draft.
Coincidentally, Wayne’s final game as a member of the Colts happened to be against the Patriots, when he was not targeted once in the AFC Championship Game in January, a game perhaps now more remembered as being the start of Deflategate.
Wayne fits a need on the Patriots as the team has several question marks among its receiving corps due to injuries.
Julian Edelman has been out since Aug. 2 with a lower leg injury, though he is still expected to be ready for Week 1. Brandon LaFell remains on the physically unable to perform list and Aaron Dobson has been sidelined by a reported hamstring injury the last two weeks.
Last spring, way back in 2014, we sat down with Large Professor, partly on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Illmatic but mostly because he’s the reason for much of the New York rap we both love so much. The second half of Microphone Check’s interview last year with producer and rapper Large Professor. You can listen to and read part one here www.npr.org/sections/microphone…he-world-of-hip-hop. Part two covers the making of Illmatic, Paul C’s role and Ali’s favorite Extra P lines.
Monday show that the knee injury Nelson sustained Sundayin the first quarter of a preseason game at Pittsburgh is a torn ACL, then Nelson’s season is over and the Packers’ high-powered offense can’t possibly be the same without him.
As valuable as Cobb is — he caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last season — he’s still only 5-foot-10 and best suited to play in the slot. At 6-3, Nelson is the Packers’ big-play threat on the perimeter. He was tied for the NFL lead last season in 40-plus yard touchdowns catches (with seven). Since 2011, he ranks third in the NFL with 53 catches of 25 yards or more.
Nelson is also quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target. Nelson caught a career-high 98 passes last season and had 85 the year before. Last season, Rodgers threw his way 149 times. Only three receivers — Demaryius Thomas (with 185), Antonio Brown (180) and Julio Jones (163) — were targeted more, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
No wonder Rodgers was so downtrodden after the game.
“It’s difficult to lose a guy like that in a meaningless game,” the quarterback said.
