    Former Broncos and Texans wide receiver Demaryius Thomaspleaded guilty to a careless driving charge on Wednesday.

    The charge stemmed from a February 16 car crash that saw Thomas’ car roll over after hitting a median. Thomas was going 70 mph in a 30 mph zone at the time of the crash according to Denver police. Thomas and a male passenger suffered minor injuries while a female passenger suffered more serious injuries.

    A felony charge of vehicular assault was dismissed as part of the plea. Thomas was sentenced to one year of probation, 50 hours of community service and fines.

    “It was important for me to accept responsibility for my careless driving. I personally promise I will never again put anyone at risk with that type of driving going forward,” Thomas said in a statement, via USA Today.

    Thomas was released by the Texans in February with a failed physical designation. He tore his Achilles late last season.

    • Bears will “entertain” offers for Jordan Howard, but feel they’re in good spot at RB

      There was a report earlier this month that that Bears were approached about trading running back Jordan Howard and the possibility of parting ways with their leading rusher from last season seemed to grow larger when they signed Mike Davisearly in free agency.

      Bears head coach Matt Nagy didn’t play coy about the report when asked about it at the league meetings in Arizona on Tuesday. Nagy acknowleged the chatter and said General Manager Ryan Pace is “always going to see where we’re at” and will “entertain” trade offers that make the Bears better.

      Nagy added that he felt comfortable going forward with Howard, Davis and Tarik Cohen on the roster as the team tries to improve its production on the ground.

      “For us, the running-back position right now is something that we think we’re in a good spot,” Nagy said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “But we definitely feel overall between the [offensive] linemen, the running backs and me calling plays, that we can be better in the run game.”

      For his part, Pace said things still have to unfold and that no one “knows what’s going to happen in the draft.” That suggests that the good spot at running back isn’t necessarily one that the team is going to settle for heading into the regular season.

      • Ndamukong Suh won’t return to Rams

        Rams defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh‘s the top remaining free agent available, and even though we haven’t heard much about what he’s looking for, we know he’s priced himself out of a return to Los Angeles.

        Via Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com, Rams General Manager Les Snead said that Suh’s return was “pretty much guaranteed to be off the table.”

        “Based on the fact that from our budgetary constraints this year, it probably doesn’t fit in his desires,” Snead said.

        Suh played last season on a one-year, $14 million deal, and he played well enough that he shouldn’t fairly expect to take less than that.

        And the Rams have already spent much of their available cash, after extending outside linebacker Dante Fowler, and signing safety Eric Weddle, quarterback Blake Bortles, and linebacker Clay Matthews.

            According to Greg Auman of The Athletic, the Buccaneers are expected to sign Blaine Gabbert, for some reason.

            Gabbert has the requisite background with coach Bruce Arians, playing for him in Arizona in 2017. He was cut by the Titans last week when they upgraded by training for Ryan Tannehill.

            Gabbert has also played for the 49ers and the Jaguars, who took him 10th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. That was the year many allegedly serious analysts (including a guy who is a General Manager on an NFL team now) suggested he was better than top pick Cam Newton.

            The 29-year-old Gabbert has started 48 career games. His team won 13 of them. He’s also completed 56.2 percent of his passes, with 48 touchdowns and 47 interceptions.
            I love this! For some reason. Lol

                      Do yourself a favor and put that guy on ignore. Basically, the Lions suck and will always suck as long as Matt Stafford is their QB. Nothing else matters.

                        • Bill Belichick Could Become Patriots DC

                          March 28th, 2019 at 9:30pm CST by Micah Powell

                          Thursday began with the news that Patriots defensive coordinator Greg Schiano would be stepping down from the post. Later in the day, news trickled out that head coach Bill Belichick could assume a larger role with the defense or even take over the role of defensive coordinator, ESPN’s Mike Reiss writes.

                          Following their victory in Super Bowl LIII, the Patriots saw a mass exodus from their defensive coaching staff, which included former defensive coordinator Brian Flores take the head-coaching gig in Miami and a number of assistants leaving. Schiano, highly trusted by Belichick, was expected to help the transition, but his abrupt departure puts the Pats in a tough situation.

                          Reiss notes Belichick assuming defensive coordinator duties is the most likely of scenarios but is not the only one. Another possibility is a “Hail Mary” call to former defensive line coach Brendan Daly, who left to become the Chiefs run-game coordinator. Considering his family’s roots in K.C. area, however, it could be a tough sell.

                          Another potential candidate would be Bret Bielema, the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin tweets. Volin mentions that Bielema, the former University of Wisconsin and Arkansas head coach and current defensive consultant with the Pats, thought he was getting the job earlier this year.

                          Belichick, of course, is no slouch as a defensive coordinator. With the Giants, he won a pair of Super Bowls under head coach Bill Parcells while running the defense. As the head coach of the Patriots, Belichick has always played a large role on the defensive side of the ball, except in 2009 when he contributed largely to the offense following Josh McDaniels‘ departure to Denver.

                            Which in turn, could mean more on the plate for McDaniels. Nice find!

                              Free agent tight end Luke Willson is visiting the Raiders today, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

                              The Raiders lost tight end Jared Cook in free agency.

                              Willson signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Lions last offseason.

                              He had the worst year of his career with 13 catches for 87 yards and no touchdowns. Willson played 424 snaps on offense — 39.4 percent — and 124 on special teams.

                              Willson, 29, spent the first five years of his career with the Seahawks after they made him a fifth-round pick.

                              He made 89 receptions for 1,129 yards and 11 touchdowns in his career in Seattle.
