ESPN’s Adam Schefter predicts ‘unprecedented’ protests on ‘Choose Your Side’ Sunday
Few reporters are more plugged into the NFL than ESPN’s Adam Schefter. When Schefty talks, people listen.
During “Sunday NFL Countdown,” Schefter predicted TV viewers will witness Cheap Youth Soccer Jerseys an “unprecedented” number of protests as players, coaches and even front office executives defy President Donald Trump on “Choose Your Side” Sunday.
Look for players kneeling, locking arms or raising fists in the air. Look for coaches to support their players on the field in a show of unity. Look for owners, and even front office executives, to publicly support their players.
According to Schefter, NFL teams were hard at work Saturday night planning their response to Trump’s tweets, which continued Sunday morning.
This is the 10th year out of the past 13 in which the Vikings have had to start more than one quarterback, with Brett Favre (2009), Christian Ponder (2012) and Teddy Bridgewater (2015) the only ones who made it through an entire campaign unscathed. In only seven of the 35 years since the 1982 strike, the Vikings Discount Volleyball Jerseys have had the luxury of sticking with one quarterback, with Warren Moon (1995) and Daunte Culpepper (2000, 2002 and 2004) also on the list.
By all accounts, Bridgewater is progressing and could be ready to be taken off the PUP list after Week 6. However, the Vikings have an incentive to keep him on there all season, which would give them added flexibility next season.
Thanks to an obscure CBA rule, any player left on the PUP list all season would have his contract “toll,” or carry over, to the next season. So even though Bridgewater is now in the last year of his contract — and Minnesota declined to pick up his fifth-year option — the Vikings would have him for another year under the terms of this year’s contract if he remained on the PUP list all season.
