This morning Kendrick Norton of the Miami Dolphins was in a car accident that took away his arm. His career is over just like that. Last season was his first and only season, and his contract was $975K over 2 years, probably not guaranteed.

An NFL scout is being schooled by WRs and DBs for trying to trash DK Metcalf

Quote:
Golden Tate has caught passes from both Russell Wilson in Seattle and Matthew Stafford in Detroit, and he has a strongly held opinion of which one of them is better.

Tate told WDIV in Detroit that Stafford is the best quarterback he’s played with during his 10-year NFL career, which also saw him spend half a season in Philadelphia before signing with the Giants this year.

“To me, as of now, where I am today, I think Stafford’s been the best quarterback I’ve played with,” Tate said. “The guy can flat-out play. He’s tough, his attitude is amazing and he just wants to play ball. For me, I have nothing but praises for him. It’s almost unfair that he’s such a good player and doesn’t have playoffs or a ring to show for it. That kind of hurts my heart that I wasn’t able to help change that.”

So if Stafford is the best quarterback Tate played with, why did Tate earn a Super Bowl ring while playing with Wilson but never win a playoff game while playing with Stafford? Tate thinks Stafford could have a ring if he’d been drafted by a different franchise.

“I think over his career, if you put him in another organization, maybe things are different. I don’t know. Because I’ve played with some guys over my years that I’ve won playoff games with that I don’t think are as good,” Tate said.

That’s high praise for Stafford — but it’s simultaneously a shot at Wilson, and at the Lions for not putting a better team around the quarterback they’ve had for a decade without winning a playoff game.
He can't believe this, I think he's still upset over how he left the team.

Perhaps he's just not that great at evaluating QB's. That's not really his job.

He was the only person ticketed, I wonder what caused the accident. I'm betting he was texting. No alcohol or drugs present.

Texting is a possibility, but he just as easily could have been distracted by his fellow passenger. Or it could have just been reckless behaviour in general which I see all too often on the roads. The fact that he wasn't even wearing a seatbelt supports the reckless driving theory.

Norton began exiting northbound onto 826 after his lane split. He then attempted to change lanes to travel southbound and sideswiped an approaching Maserati. The driver of the Maserati was able to stop, but Nortonís Ford F-250 veered across the two-lane road into a concrete barrier wall and flipped.

If the Lions defense were as dominant as Seattle's was during their Super Bowl years, then yes, Stafford would have had a ring.

Stafford is responsible for the offensive and defensive staff.

It's in his name.
