It’s a little more than a month until the first round of the NFL Draft gets underway and one of the top quarterback prospects in this year’s class will be spending this week working out for potential employers.
Baker Mayfield already has volumes of game tape, a Scouting Combine workout and a Pro Day workout for teams to consider and four of them will be adding private workouts to their other research.
He signed a four-year, $40-million extension ahead of the 2016 campaign, but failed to deliver on the promise he had shown the previous year. Hurns played 21 games over the first two years of his extension, catching just 74 of 132 targets for a meager 961 yards and five touchdowns. He’ll likely compete with Terrance Williams for the Cowboys’ No. 2 receiver role.
That was a change from when we last heard from Bennett on the topic. Bennett said last October that he was pretty sure that he would hang up his cleats at the end of the 2017 season. On Wednesday, Bennett provided an update on his thoughts during an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show and said he hasn’t made up his mind in either direction.
Right now I’m just living life and trying to figure out what I want to do next, Bennett said. Is it to continue to play? Is it to explore other options? What is it that I want to do? After 10 years, you take such a toll not only on your body but mentally. So it’s just like where am I in a mental capacity overall? Is it something I want to continue to do?
Bennett said he’s working out and preparing to play, so it may be a case of not getting the kind of offer he’s looking for on the open market more than total uncertainty about what he’d like to do over the rest of the year. Bennett also Toronto Blue Jays Cheap Jerseys indicated he wouldn’t mind missing offseason work and even the Vancouver Canucks Cheap Jerseys start of training camp, which may mean a definitive answer about his plans won’t be coming soon.
