NFL protests are going to play into free agency, and possibly the draft

The protests that went on in the NFL last season over the oppression faced by people of color in the United States was a topic of discussion all season. While that slowly burned off, it’s not over.

VM: That started when I was interviewing Emanuel. Emanuel Sanders was my very first interview, and that’s my buddy. I go to work with him every day, I see him every day. So doing an interview with him, I was comfortable. It was a good first step. Interviewing him I was just being goofy, like, Do you know any other Emanuels? And then I was like, I’m just going to make up some shit real fast and see if he’s going to follow along with it. And say, like, Yeah, I know him too. So i did it, and he was like No, I don’t know him! I gotta look him up! He was real into it. And then, when I told him I was lying, everybody busted out laughing. So I was like yeah, I’m going to do this from now on.

But taking his size into account makes his numbers even more astounding.

But adding in Pro Football Reference’s numbers, which go back to 2000, and community-collected numbers like these into the mix, makes it even clearer that Barkley did something special.

Barkley’s only a couple inches shy of the record among all RBs, in fact, set by 195-pound Jerry Azumah and 200-pound Jay Hinton.

That reality could lead the Lakers to a more proactive solution. If they see that Clarkson would be hard to move in June or July, the front office could try to trade Randle at the February deadline. Doing so would allow the Lakers to extract some value, which could come in the form of a pick or their trade partner taking on a contract, ideally Clarkson’s or Deng’s. The acquiring team would have Randle and whomever else they acquired for the stretch run and playoffs, plus restricted rights on Randle.
