Rise and Grind !!
Blessed to see another day !!
With Blake out, Team USA needs another big. Why do I think a Plumlee gets the call and not Monroe.
While I understand why Greg Monroe wasn't part of TEAM USA, how many more bigs have to bail before he gets the invite?

Gruden said Jackson "is a force to be reckoned with" and that he is a "huge benefit."
Gruden said DeSean Jackson has been "a fine teammate." Asked to critique him, "he looks too cool for school when he's running routes."
Gruden said Griffin's erratic throws today were because of wet balls. He'll be the first to say Griffin must improve, Griffin the second.
Gruden said he was aware of Hall's reputation upon assuming control of the team, but has been pleased with Hall's attitude and effort.
Really makes it tough to get excited about Cam Newton with Jerricho Cotchery & Jason Avant as his top 2 WRs. Come on, Kelvin Benjamin.
Nick Williams, Chris Thompson, Richard Crawford, Andre Roberts, Lache Seastrunk, Rashad Ross and Santana Moss all returned punts today.
Hall: "As a team to win three games last year, that takes a toll on you, physically and mentally."
Hall on Griffin: "He understands that he's going to have a microscope on him 24/7. ... He also understands it's not all about him."
Hall: "If you're a corner and you don't think you're the best, you've got a problem right there."
Hall: "I know I don't have much football left. I'm trying to go out there and have fun and leave it all on the line."
Hall: "I think the younger guys are going to benefit so much just from having Ryan out there."
Hall: "Guys aren't going to want to run across the middle knowing Ryan Clark's going to him him or Brandon Meriweather's going to hit him."
Hall: "We had fun. We're all itching to get out on the field. We're ready to get it done."
Griffin's done. Hall up next.
Griffin on Gruden: "Jay brings a lot of energy. He's funny. He's personable. We're excited to have him here. We're excited for a new year."
Griffin: "I think everybody feels different in the organization. ... There's a togetherness in that locker room and in that building."
Griffin said Gruden and McVay have been helpful guiding him during this offseason.
Robert Griffin III about to speak to reporters.
Blessed to see another day !!
Welp... 2k it is lol
I also talked to Mitchell Butler, one of Josh Huestis’ agents, today. Will have more from him and on this situation tomorrow.
Clarification: Maurice Hurt was placed on non-football injury list. Jason Hatcher, Leonard Hankerson, Stephen Bowen all on the PUP list.
I believe they're all keeping their day jobs, fwiw. Congrats to all. Joe B, Scott McBrien, Drew Nicholas also listed as Big 10 folk.
Gruden: "It's very difficult to miss an entire training camp and preseason and come Week 1, 'Here's the ball. Go play.'"
Gruden said he could spend 35 to 40 minutes talking about what Griffin needs to work on, but he could do the same with Tom Brady.
Gruden said Crawford and Porter are ready to go.
Gruden: "Robert is the quarterback. That's for sure. Hands down."
Gruden said Griffin's physical health is not an issue. "He's in his third year. He's still going to make mistakes here and there."
Gruden on Hatcher: "I think he'll be ready quicker than the others."
Gruden: "I never like to make predictions on when guys are going to come back."
Gruden said Hankerson, Hatcher, Bowen and Hurt will not be available at the start of camp. Hurt is "just a little bit out of shape."
Like what OKC's doing. Stash Huestis, let him develop, then he can replace KD when KD leaves because they're the cheapest team in the league
Jay Gruden will speak to reporters for the first time in training camp at approximately 4 p.m.
