Internet billionaire makes play for Carolina Panthers

Forbes has valued the Panthers at $2.3 billion and sources confirmed to Page Six that initial bids for the team were due on Monday. We revealed earlier this year that hedge fund billionaire David Tepper made a $2.3 billion play for the Carolina Panthers. Appaloosa Management founder Tepper is also a minority owner in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta, the owners of Station Casinos and Red Rock Resorts, were also considering a Panthers bid, we reported.

It is believed the NFL hopes to approve a deal at a meeting in May in Atlanta.

Richard was hired by the Cowboys to serve as their defensive passing game coordinator after he was fired by the Seahawks after three seasons as the team’s defensive coordinator in January. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is hopeful that the addition of a former Seahawks defensive coach will boost the performance of Dallas’ defensive unit.

I didn’t know him personally, Garrett said of Richard, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. I certainly knew of him. If you look back at the last seven years, do a statistical analysis of who the best defense in the National Football League is, it all points to that team out in the Northwest. Seattle has played great defense over the course of that time.

Obviously Pete Carroll has done an amazing job there with that defensive team, but a lot of other guys have been there Kris has been there from the start. So we have great admiration for how they play defense, how he coaches. Had admiration for him from afar for a long time and anybody who has been around him as a player or a coach spoke highly of him. So when he was available to us we wanted to bring him in and visit with him. Had a great visit.

Before Richard was Seattle’s defensive coordinator, he was the team’s defensive backs coach. He was heavily involved with the progression of Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Byron Maxwell and others into highly successful members of the team’s secondary.

Jared Allen’s patience is tested by his caddy

Every time a golfer hits the links, they take their best friend along for the ride: their caddy. The trust and bond between these two must be so great for them to succeed as a team, and with that in mind, I figured it would be the quickest ticket to friendship with living legend Jared Allen. I joined Mr. Allen (as he hated to be called) for an 18-hole jaunt around the Edgewood Tahoe golf course during the American Century Championship in hopes of proving that I’m a man worthy of holding his [golf] balls, as well as his heart.

Conner, an All-American at Pitt, fulfilled his dream of making it to the NFL when he was drafted 105th overall by the Steelers. But that accomplishment pales in comparison to what Connor did in 2016. He beat Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

He tore his MCL during Pitt’s first game of the season, and during the rehab process, doctors discovered a lump in Conner’s chest. It was diagnosed as Hodgkin’s in December 2015. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is treatable, but it can be deadly. Conner underwent treatment, and by May 2016, he was cancer-free.

Just four months later, Conner was back on the field for the Panthers. In Pitt’s first game of the season, he scored two touchdowns. He finished his final season at Pitt with 1,092 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Only two can follow in Dak Prescott’s and Joey Bosa’s footsteps and win the Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards, though.

This isn’t a list of each team’s best rookie, but rather a look at the most likely award winner from the draft class of 2017. No offensive lineman has ever won the AP’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award. There’s more diversity on the defensive side where linebacker is the most common recipient, but every standard position from tackle to safety has earned the honor at least once.

Here’s a look at the rookies on each team likely to make a big splash on the field and with voters this season.
