Former Florida State defensive back Derwin James enters the draft in eight days. As he prepares, he has gotten plenty of advice from another former Florida State defensive back: Jalen Ramsey.
James was coy about the teams that have shown interest, saying only that he’s been to a couple spots in the top Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey ten . . . top fifteen visits.
Elite Womens Dave Casper Jersey As he waits for what he calls the surprise of finding out who draft him, James has been exploring the various alternatives. James said he has put himself in each uniform in the Madden game in order to see how he’d look in those logos and colors.
I do that, James said. I ain’t gonna lie. I’ve been doing that since a kid. I’ve probably got all 32 teams by now. I’ve been doing that since a kid playing special teams, playing safety, playing corner. One day, I made myself a receiver. I’ve been doing that a long time man. A lot of years.

That’s the word from Adam Schefter of ESPN, who reports that Brady has not committed to playing the 2018 season. Schefter adds, however, that people close to Brady do expect him to play this year.
That raises the question of what exactly it would mean to commit to playing the season anyway. Players rarely announce a formal commitment to playing. It’s generally just assumed that a player under contract to an NFL team is going to play until he announces his retirement.
However, teams have been burned in the past by assuming a star player was going to play. Barry Sanders spent an offseason declining to commit to playing, and then announced his retirement on the eve of training camp in 1999. That caught the Lions off-guard, and made them wish they had prepared for Sanders’ departure better.
