Colin Kaepernick’s jersey will now live at the Smithsonian

Colin Kaepernick is making his way to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. The veteran quarterback’s decision to kneel in order to highlight the racial injustice in America spread through all sports last year, as athletes in various leagues joined him.

At the time, Mowins was only the second woman called upon to do play-by-play for college football games. She went on to call games for the Raiders during the preseason beginning in 2015.

Mowins will be working with former Jets and Bills coach Rex Ryan, who will make his NFL broadcasting debut this year as a color commentator for ESPN.

Let’s admire how ludicrous it is to lift that amount of weights with your hips. I mean, this shouldn’t really surprise anyone — especially after we learned that Harrison has to wear a sweatshirt while working out because his arms are too big for normal attire.

Now that the impressiveness is out of the way, we can giggle at the sounds he makes while working out. It’s rare to have a video that only SOUNDS NSFW and looks totally normal — but here we are.

McCourty drew plenty of interest late in free agency after being released by the Titans in mid-April. He’ll bolster a rebuilding Browns secondary that features former All-Pro Joe Haden and versatile first-round draft pick Jabrill Peppers. While several teams had their eye on the veteran, a springtime trip to Cleveland was enough to lure him to a franchise that sported the league’s worst record in 2016.

Signing the veteran will help mitigate the loss of rookie Howard Wilson, who was expected to compete for the starting role alongside Haden. Wilson fractured his kneecap during rookie minicamp, leaving players like Jamar Taylor, Briean Boddy-Calhoun, and Marcus Burley as the team’s best remaining cornerbacks.

John Lynch: Colin Kaepernick left ‘excited’ after visit

Colin Kaepernick has touched base with his employer.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback visited the team’s Santa Clara headquarters on Wednesday, per Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.

“I would characterize it as a really positive discussion … Colin left excited,” new general manager John Lynch told KNBR-AM in San Francisco after the visit.

The meeting comes one day after Lynch told 95.7 The Game that he and first-year coach Kyle Shanahan planned to “communicate” with the 29-year-old signal-caller, saying: “I think that’s very important for both sides. Like everything else, that process is well in the works. We’ll continue to do that and we’ll be very up-front with him, in terms of what we’re thinking and we’ll want to know what he’s thinking, as well.”

Player X Making Strides In Rehab Program is one of the most well-worn offseason tropes in the game. Especially popular is rehab footage of a player — typically in recovery from a lower-body malady of some sort — doing work in the pool. We saw it last month with Cardinals running back David Johnson, who straight-up jumped out of his swimming hole a month after suffering the type of knee injury that would leave you or I on a death bed.

Packers running back Eddie Lacy suffered a season-ending ankle injury in October. It would behoove Lacy, a pending free agent, to send a message to the public (read: potential employers in Green Bay and elsewhere) that indicates he is working his way back toward full health. Throw up the AquaBat Signal!

Last offseason, Lacy was the subject of another popular offseason trope: Player Y In The Best Shape Of His Life. For Lacy, that narrative began when the beefy running back took part in a series of workouts with P90X founder Tony Horton.

Tuesday’s video doesn’t give us much insight into Lacy’s current level of fitness, but let’s go ahead and consider it a positive sign he’s not in the pool with his shirt on.
