Trubisky said he is excited to watch the matchup, but he wouldn’t mind an opportunity to play shooting guard in a supporting role to LeBron James.
I think I should be coming off the bench to help the Cavs, Trubisky said. It’s like I’m a part of the team, I’m one of those guys, it’s like that crazy.
I’m not crashing the boards, I’m just shooting threes. I’m spreading the floor for LeBron, so I’m just going to knock down shots for him if he needs.
Who is the most underpaid of the batch? Mahomes has started just one NFL game and is getting a lot more money than the other three, while Fuller has to prove in a new setting that his strong 2017 season wasn’t an anomaly and that he can hold it down outside of the slot. Hunt was listed by PFR as the second-most-valuable player on the Kansas City roster last season, but Hill ranked fourth in that category while making the Pro Bowl for the second year in a row.
Hill has accomplished more than the other three, plays a more premium position than Hunt and is making less than all of them. The 24-year-old is grossly underpaid.
While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton. I have already shared this information with the Hall. After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere.
Owens said he would reveal his plans at a later date. The 2018 Hall of Fame class will be enshrined on Aug. 4.
A five-time all-pro selection, he trails only Jerry Rice in career receiving yards (15,934) and ranks third in touchdown catches (153). He played for five teams — the 49ers, Eagles Cowboys, Bills and Bengals — in his 15-year career.
He previously announced he would have his wide receivers coach from his early days of the 49ers, George Stewart, be his presenter at the Hall of Fame. But he was not on hand for NFL Honors when the 2018 class was revealed, nor was he at Super Bowl LII when the group was recognized.
Owens was heavily critical of the Hall of Fame for its voting process after being denied entry in his first two years of eligibility.
