Former NFL player Monty Grow was sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison and ordered to pay about $18 million in restitution for a health care fraud scheme, the Associated Press reports.
Defensive end J.J. Watt, who wasn’t with the team when the inmates hit the fan last year, admitted that conversations have since occurred among the players. We’ve talked about it in the locker room amongst some of the guys, Watt told reporters. That’s the most important thing, is we’re handling it amongst each other. We speak openly and freely in the locker room. What I said a while back still stands today, is that there have been a lot of conversations and dialogues that have been opened up in the locker room that haven’t been there before. I’ve learned a lot of things and I’ve definitely had conversations that we’ve never had before.
Lastly, I asked Borland how much football he now watches.
I don’t watch football at all, he said. Not out of protest or anger. Just hard-earned apathy.
Mike White could fit with the Patriots as well, and he might be available later in the draft than Lauletta or Falk.
Similar to Falk, he has the size (6’4 and 225 pounds) and arm strength to power the ball downfield. And similar to Lauletta, he’s accurate, as he completed 67.3 percent of his pass attempts for Western Kentucky in 2016 and 65.7 in 2017. In both of those seasons, White finished with 4,100-plus passing yards, and he shined in 2016 while averaging 10.5 yards per throw.
Given his glacial 40-yard dash time of 5.09 seconds at the scouting combine, White will never be mistaken for a track star. But after nearly three full seasons of starting experience, he has a refined pocket presence and knows how to avoid pressure.
