The Seattle Seahawks have a good news, bad news scenario on defensive end Dion Jordan.
Coach Pete Carroll revealed Thursday that Jordan underwent offseason knee surgery, which was categorized as a cleanup, and will be out 6-8 weeks, per NFL Network’s James Palmer.
Jordan, who signed a $1.9 million restricted free-agent tender in April, being down represents the bad news. The projected timetable of his recover, however, lands squarely at or near the start of training camp in late July, so the Seahawks should have Jordan available before the regular season.
The rivalry grew deeper in the 2000s, with former Met player and manager Joe Torre still at the helm of the Yankees, and former Yankee Willie Randolph taking the Mets managerial job in 2005.
Less than two weeks after Randolph’s firing in 2008, the teams split yet another, day-night, twin-park doubleheader. Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado took advantage in the first game by recording nine RBI, the most ever by an opposing player in the old Yankee Stadium.
The dwindling pool of unsigned draft picks is about to get even shallower.
According to a tweet from his agent, the Dolphins have signed sixth-rounder Cornell Amrstrong.
The cornerback from Southern Miss is the first of their picks to sign.
The Dolphins and Rams were the last two teams with all their picks unsigned, as the vast majority of picks are already taken care of.
A bounce-back year is needed, and Mariota’s pass-catchers will have to take that step with him, but don’t expect the former Heisman winner to make it back to the playoffs until that box is checked off. Lightning won’t strike twice, even in the AFC’s wild-card race.
