The Facts: Wilson and the Seahawks have been amicable in recent months trying to secure a long-term contract extension for the quarterback. On Monday, Wilson discussed the contract standstill in an ESPN interview. When asked how much money he thought he deserved, Wilson laughed and said: "I don't know. How much would you pay me?" He continued: "I think ultimately, it comes down to the play. Just let my play speak for itself. ... No matter if it's $25 million or if it's $1.5 million -- I'll be ready to go."
Diehards Line: Less than three hours after the interview aired, Wilson cryptically tweeted: "Don't believe me just watch." As NFL.com suggests, that $25 million isn't a number pulled from thin air. It very well could be the annual salary Wilson is asking for, making him the highest-paid player in the game. Wilson has already indicated that he's prepared to play the final year of his rookie deal even if GM John Schneider doesn't secure the signal-caller with wheelbarrows of cash. The 26-year-old is set to earn $1.5 million in 2015, which is less than 40 quarterbacks in the league. ... Negotiations will continue in the meantime.

Aaron Rodgers Plans To Keep Playing As Long As He's Playing Well Wednesday, July 1, 2015 | Time: 2:28 PT |  Reported by Profootballtalk.com

The Facts: Plenty of franchise quarterbacks have said they plan to keep playing until they turn 40, and beyond. Rodgers recently applied a more open-ended expiration date to his career. "I think I proved with the calf injury that I can play from the pocket effectively," Rodgers recently told Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "But I'm going to keep playing the way I play as long as I can."
Diehards Line: As PFT's Mike Florio suggests, the key words in that answer are "the way I play." The way he plays is with a high degree of mobility. So when the mobility goes, will Rodgers settle for being a pocket passer exclusively? The second sentence of the answer suggests that maybe he won't. The first sentence suggests that maybe he will. Either way, the 31-year old signal caller is clearly playing at an elite level now and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon.

Fifteen Fantastic CFF Sleepers in 2015

Fifteen Fantastic CFF Sleepers in 2015 

 

The Gridiron Scholar


While NFL Fantasy Football is a countrywide cultural obsession, the CFF game lags far behind in popularity. With the rise of Daily Fantasy Sports, college football fanaticism is bound to proliferate, and fans are seeking information in order to navigate the new frontier among 128 FBS teams. 


To assist veterans and rookies in the CFF universe, the results of our Mock Draft were analyzed in order to provide value and insight into over-looked and under-valued performers. Only players selected after the seventh round (and several added free agents) were scrutinized and provided projections for each in 2015.

 

Player, Team (Round, Overall Pick in Mock Draft)


RB Larry Rose III, New Mexico State (Round 8, 95)

In only 10 games last season, the Aggie freshman exploded for 1,102 yards rushing with nine touchdowns. He rambled for over 100 yards in five games, including a 229-yard effort against Louisiana Monroe. Averaging 110.2 yards per game and 5.9 yards per carry, Rose became the focal point of a passing-deficient offense. New Mexico State runs an up-tempo, quick-passing scheme with a single runner in the backfield, and the Fairfield, Texas native will garner plenty of carries in 2015. 

2015 Projections

Passing Yards and TDs: 1,330 and 13

Rushing Yards and TDs: 300 and 1

Total Fantasy Points: 247
