Good Thursday to you. I have to say, you are a Dad Joke Telling Bunch. Thanks to the zillions that sent some to me.
They all were terrible. As Dad Jokes are meant to me.
These three people are the final three to win a free Footballguys Season Long Pro Subscription. There were some jokes entered by multiple people, in that case, I used the one I saw first today.
#1. From Chris Boerger:
If you're Russian when you go into the bathroom, and you're Finnish when you come out. What are you when you're in the bathroom?
#2. From Jimmy Buckliew:
What do you call a fake noodle?
#3. From Omar Helal:
What do you call a snarky criminal falling down the stairs?
A condescending con descending.

The Chargers don't need to see Rivers much if at all during the exhibition portion of the summer. They are in a Super Bowl window so long as Rivers is their quarterback. We should see Tyrod Taylor get plenty of work and the Chargers want to see a lot of rookie quarterback Easton Stick too.
McKinnon is going to have to compete with Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida in training camp. It's looking like it could be a three-headed RBBC for the 49ers in 2019. McKinnon has a current ADP of RB40 (8.12) in 12-team PPR leagues. Coleman has an ADP of RB31 (6.10) and Brieda is coming off the board at RB56 (14.02) at this time.
This is minor but still not good news for a player who was reportedly on the trading block earlier this offseason. We'll see if he can get healthy, stay healthy and impress enough to make the 53-man roster in the jam-packed Eagles WR corps.
It now all makes sense. Michel hasn't been practicing for a few weeks and now we know that he had a simple knee scope. Barring any setbacks, we should see him ready for camp and Michel should earn the lead back duties for the Patriots in 2019.
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines' role could be affected 'a little bit' by the arrival of WR Parris Campbell, according to head coach Frank Reich.'And yeah, with Parris (Campbell) in the slot that could affect Nyheim a little bit. It would ultimately, probably affect him a little bit, but that is a good thing. We will just continue to fine tune and by game plan, I think that is one of the things that we've done well is figure that out week-to-week how to apply the personnel against the defense that we're playing,' Reich said.
Keep an eye on this situation in training camp and the preseason. Hines was targeted 81 times in 2018 as a rookie, snaring 63 passes for 425 yards and two touchdowns. However, out of those 63 catches only 12 of them came from the slot. If he does lose some slot routes to Campbell, the Colts could easily make up for that with other touches or receptions with Hines in the backfield. Hines has deep flex appeal in PPR leagues because of his receiving ability. His current ADP is RB49 (11.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.
Brown has a skill set that could work well in the NFL. He's balanced when running after the catch and is tough to bring down. Brown is more quick than fast, but he uses his quickness and strength to make plays. He will start opposite of Corey Davis this year for the Titans.
Matthews had a bizarre 2018 season, playing eight games on the season with three coming for the Titans and five for the Jets. He had five catches for 24 yards during those contests in 2018. We'll see if his tryout with the Saints can earn him a chance on the 90-man roster for training camp.
Barnett made it through six games in 2018 before this shoulder injury (and surgery) forced him out of the lineup. He's a talented player when healthy and a boost for the Eagles pass rush. We'll see if he can get out there at the start of camp later this summer.
Perryman was getting some work in individual drills in previous offseason workouts. Now, he's moved up to getting some team drills work. This follows the reports that indicate Perryman will be back fully for training camp. He's a talented linebacker but is oft-injured.
Los Angeles Chargers S Nasir Adderley (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, June 11, because of his undisclosed injury. Head coach Anthony Lynn said the team is holding out Adderley as a precaution.
A second-round pick out of Delaware in the 2019 NFL draft, Adderley gives the Chargers a great safety combination with 2018 first-round pick Derwin James. Adderley did injure his hamstring during his pro day but was participating in offseason workouts. Who knows what this issue is, but the Chargers are wisely being cautious.
Key was supposed to be a big part of the Raiders pass rush as a rookie in 2018, but in 16 games (10 starts) he only had 1.0 sack. The shoulder surgery is being declared as only a clean-up procedure. We'll see if Key can perform better in year two of his pro career.
McGovern is a road grader as a run blocker and a work in progress as a pass protector. He's got the strength and intimidating mindset to push guys around in the middle of the line. McGovern, a third-round pick out of Penn State, has been missing time in OTAs and minicamp due to a chest injury. When healthy, McGovern is going to push for a starting job as a rookie.
Graded by some to be a late-round pick, the Jaguars like Williams enough to take him in the third round of the 2019 NFL draft. The younger brother of No. 3 overall pick Quinnen Williams, Quincy is an athletic tackling machine who has WILL skill set in the NFL. He's been getting some first-team reps in practice this offseason, and the Jaguars may have been ahead of the curve when it comes to evaluating the young linebacker.
Kansas City Chiefs OT Mitchell Schwartz signed a one-year extension Wednesday, June 12, through the 2021 season. Schwartz's one-year extension is worth $11.255 million and both years are fully guaranteed.
It's an interesting move for the Chiefs since Schwartz had two years remaining on his contract. Now signed through 2021, Schwartz should continue to play at a high level at right tackle. He's never missed a snap in his career and is one of the best in the game at his position.
Tennessee Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (knee) said he's not rushing back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. 'If I don't play this year, I'm fine with it,' Simmons said. 'But my goal is to get healthy on my time and on this team's time. There's no time limit and when I can come back. Every day I come to work, I'm putting my mindset, you know, 'I want to get back today.' That's how I come to work every day and try to get better.'
Simmons had the makings of a top-10 pick before sustaining this knee injury before the combine. The Titans selected him No. 19 overall in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft with the idea that he might need a redshirt year as a rookie. It sounds like Simmons is okay with that, and the Titans certainly are going to ease him along at the correct pace.
A second-round pick out of Washington in the 2017 NFL draft, King has never played a full 16-game season in his career (17 games total in two seasons). The Packers won't push him as he returns from the shoulder injury that limited his 2018 season to just six games. He should start opposite Jaire Alexander when healthy.
Things change pretty quickly around here. It wasn't that long ago that Wilkins was thought of as a sleeper pick in the Colts jam-packed backfield and now he's fighting for a roster spot. One spot we think he should earn by the way, but Wilkins dynasty stock has certainly taken a hit. Mack is the main back for the Colts and Nyheim Hines can work as a change-of-pace back. We think the Colts keep Wilkins around, but he may not get much playing time unless there's an injury in front of him on the depth chart.
