Peterson Still Unsigned

Adrian Peterson

Scribe:  Samuel Otis

Email:  Samuel@thethinkering.com

 

In a strange twist of gridiron fate nearly a month into free agency veteran Adrian Peterson is without a contract.  He just left Foxboro visiting with the Patriots—and Still no contract.  While negotiations are likely continuing the famed back has not yet found a team. 

There is still hope, but at the top of the month Peterson said that he and his team would be taking their time to find the right fit.    And I’m sure the fat price tag is another reason for the slow walking from both his camp and teams. 

The 32-year-old running back is recovering from a torn meniscus in his knee, which has pulled back on the reins from his game breaking days but AP is still an offensive threat via the difficulty of bringing him to the ground.

Former Knicks head coach Derek Fisher in a recent podcast admitted the Matt Barnes fight effected his relationship with the Knickerbockers organization. 

Before his release he insisted that he was not responsible for what happened that caused him to miss a preseason practice.   He has now had a change of heart and taking responsibility saying hindsight is 20/20 and he understands the incident may have colored the way Phil Jackson president of the Knicks and the organization viewed him.

The good thing for Fisher is after he was fired from the organization the team continued to lose and points to the aged triangle offense as the only part of the team that hasn’t changed.  The former Laker guard is hoping to get the attention of team decision makers to offer him another stab at the top coaching job.

Apparently, the owner of the farm had a change of heart and decided to end his contribution in the dog meat trade business.  The owner’s decision led in the intervention and after an agreement between he and the HIS the operation was successfully shut down.   HSI described the conditions of the dogs as haphazardous, described small cages and filthy conditions.  The rescue team said the facility was unlike anything they had seen before and said some of the animals didn’t have daylight or fresh air daily. 

Closing down this processing plant was part of HIS’s fight to end the dog meat trade in Asia.

Marshawn Lynch is in Play - Raiders wants to interrupt his Retirement

Marshawn Lynch

Email:  lucy@thethinkeirng.com

 

Marshawn Lynch is being lured out of retirement, allegedly by the Oakland Raiders.  Lynch has enjoyed a single season of retirement and is 31-years-old and has 9,112 career rushing yards.  A successful return would place him in rarified space with some of the greats. 

A reputable source has dropped a dime on Lynches career opportunities.  He retired from the Seahawks at the close of the 2015 season averaging 4 yards per carry and pretty beat up body.  He is still under contract with the Seahawks and the club would have to decide to keep him, cut him, or trade him and any deal except keep him would clear the books for $9 million for the season.

If he decides to return it is predicted – his jersey would sell off the shelves providing he breaks 10,000 yards rushing.

The Lakers can only go UP

Magic and the Lakers

The LA Lakers now have the second worst record among the 30 teams that make the National Basketball Association.  While they are in rebuild mode, they are not going anywhere fast. 

The Phoenix Suns unwound the Lakers their conference mates on Thursday night 122-110 with D’Angelo Russell knocking down 28 points.   The loss leaves the Lakers with a winning percentage of .308 – and a record of 20-45, not impressive for a legendary franchise.

Coach Luke Walton said, “I think teams feel like when they play us right now, that we’re kind of a soft team, that they can come in and get their offensive numbers against us.”

Interestingly, Byron Scott said the same thing two years ago. 

Just recently, Magic Johnson got the call to head Basketball Operations, with the promise to bring change to the organization.
