Stedman Bailey does a Pro Day workout, three years after getting shot in the head
In 2015, Rams receiver Stedman Bailey was shot in the head. It nearly ended his life, and certainly ended his football career or so everyone thought at the time.
In 2018, Bailey is doing so well that he wants to get back in the NFL. Toward that end, he worked out at Marshall’s Pro Day on Wednesday, hoping some NFL scout would like what he sees enough to offer him a contract.
Signing Willson (two Ls, not one; don’t get it twisted) comes after the Lions released former first-round tight end, Eric Ebron , ahead of the new league year.
D.J. Moore can bring the element once expected of Cooks. No, Moore isn’t as fast as Cooks, but the 2017 Big Ten Receiver of the Year is a good athlete who fights for every yard and can line up in the slot or out wide.

It’s unclear why Jackson won’t be doing these other things, but that’s his decision. And if it’s his agent’s decision, the decision also was made by Lamar Jackson.
Mike Mayock of NFL Network suggested that Jackson is sending a statement by not doing anything but the quarterback-only drills. And Mayock didn’t criticize Jackson’s decision not to run (or jump), even though it could be said (and has been said, by Mayock only minutes earlier regarding Sam Darnolds decision not to throw) that these guys should want to compete.
The Denver Broncos have reached an agreement to purchase a portion of minority owner John Bowlen’s share of the team, pending final approval from the NFL that is expected in the next few days.
This transaction further consolidates Pat Bowlen’s majority, controlling ownership interest in the Broncos while keeping 100 percent of the team in the Bowlen family. The acquisition of this share is independent of Mr. Bowlen’s succession plan that is being administered by the Pat Bowlen Trust.
