6:18 am tee time. A visit from one of my oldest friends. Four hours spent walking 18 with Russ and Brent. Can’t beat that #GodBlessAmerica 🇺🇸
First day back at @mohawkdaycamp and I couldn’t be more excited! I mean... the boys are excited, too. Big summer ahead for Max & Jude.
Mini Citi Field had much more action than the full-size version today, with Max and Jude running amok. They had a blast #LGM
Training camp is around the corner. How do I know? @NFL camp polos are here, with an #nfl100 flavor!
Once a year we all get together... and that time is now. Our 2019 @NFLNetwork talent group photo! 📸
For the last week, while my wife @leahrapoport and Jude were in Mississippi, it’s been just me and Max. And not saying I’m not looking forward to them returning home... but I’ll cherish the week I had with my crazy little guy. 🤪🍊
Few things better than taking Max out on the ⛳️ course for the first time. 😍🏌🏽♂️🏆
From RapSheet + Friends: #Panthers DT Gerald McCoy ( @geraldini93) joined me for a fascinating conversation, detailing his recruitment, why he chose Carolina, what he thinks about his old home in Tampa... and community work. That last comment is amazing. Plus, @mike_garafolo and @tompelissero hang out for the final time before the summer. The link is in the bio!
#OSU QB Dwayne Haskins (@dh_simba7) on the RapSheet + Friends podcast details meetings with #Raiders, #Giants, #Skins, #Broncos & #Dolphins, tells how he learned from @kobebryant & what drives him crazy. Plus #Bama RB Josh Jacobs (@iam_joshjacobs), SoCar WR Deebo Samuel (@uno_captain), @mike_garafolo & @tompelissero ... link in bio!
The #Seahawks and QB @dangerusswilson beat their deadline, got the deal done, and made sure he’s not going anywhere. 💰💰💰
QB coach Jim Zorn breaks down tutoring #OU QB Kyler Murray on the RapSheet + Friends podcast, saying, "I feel like he’s capable of everything” while noting how college football has changed. … Plus, #Stanford RB @_blovee20, @mike_garafolo & @tompelissero on the draft... link is in bio!
Best sign yet that spring is here: Today was Max’s first Little League Parade... We’re @mariners and I’m an assistant coach 🤷🏽♂️🤔⚾️
@detroitlionsnfl GM Bob Quinn (16:00) on RapSheet + Friends: “If I could move back a few spots, add a great player and a pick, that’d be great. … People out there listening, I’m open for business.” Plus, @mike_garafolo , @tompelissero and me break it down. Almost draft time, baby. Link is in the bio!
The two final pieces from @sotoandco arrived, the end of a year-long project that stocked my closet with super stylish stuff and helped me add a new friend. The lining for the suit on the right is the perfect way to cap it off! Rick remains the best.
The #Eagles have acquired RB Jordan Howard from the #Bears in exchange for a conditional 2020 5th round pick. Chicago shopped him for months, finally found a taker.
Trade alert 🚨🚨🚨: The #Cowboys are landing a big piece of their defense, as they are expected to trade for #Dolphins pass-rusher Robert Quinn.
#Colts GM Chris Ballard on the RapSheet + Friends podcast says QB Andrew Luck’s offseason has been... normal. This is a very good thing. Ballard also weighed in on their free agent splash. Meanwhile, #Vikings GM Rick Spielman discussed all things free agency including luring Anthony Barr back. @mike_garafolo & @tompelissero all hang out with me on our podcast from here. Link is in the bio!
Two reporters still at the Biltmore for the League Meetings... one on a box 🤷🏽♂️🆙
The greatest tight end ever? Either way, #Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski goes out on top — retiring after a star-studded career.
Family cheers to 5 more years at @nflnetwork! I can’t think of a better place to be or a more perfect reason to celebrate. 🖐🏼 to my agent @jsilbowitz for running the show, to my wife @leahrapoport for keeping me sane, and to the Network for, well, everything. A fantastic result. And now, back to work. 📜🔏☑️
The #Colts dove into free agency late in the process, signing DE Justin Houston and added to their already stout D. It’s 2 years, $24M and a lot of sacks for Indy.
Headed home: The #Rams and pass-rusher Clay Matthews reached a 2-year deal worth up to $16.7M... After a decade in Green Bay, Matthews will play in the Coliseum again.
Spent a lotttttttt of TV time talking with these dudes during #FreeAgencyFrenzy ... 60 hours or so. Couldn’t imagine doing it with a better crew (and we didn’t even kill each other)! Our whole army of reporters was tremendous. Until next year... (📸: @gematalon)
Last hit of a loooooong week at Lucas Oil Stadium during Combine week. Then tomorrow, I ✈️
Day 2 of the @nflcombine was better than the first... at least I wasn’t in a parking garage 🤷🏽♂️
A career highlight: I was a clue in “Crosswords with Friends” recently. ... I should get it framed (h/t: @matt_the_stud)
Day 2, in the books! #vacation #sore 🏂
#Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham (@jarrett_stidham8) on his goals the next few months: "To me, the ceiling can never be too high when it comes to knowledge.” More from Stidham (12:00), @hailstatefb S Johnathan Abram ( @thejabram), @tompelissero & @mike_garafolo on the RapSheet + Friends podcast... link in bio!
Being a dad is a full-time job, on top of my other full-time job – both of which keep me smiling and on my toes. I’m constantly running around or on the road, so I love @Tropicana_Juices single serves because they’re easy to toss in my bag — get my vitamin C on-the-go! My #MadeToGo Moment? Recording the Rapsheet and Friends podcast + skating practice + walk with the boys = #MadeToGo with @tropicana_juices
I told both of them: Keep it up and you’re going in timeout. Next thing you know: Penalty box. 🚫🏒
What to do on the first Sunday without 🏈 in months? Well, I took one of my little ski buddies (the other was sick) on our first day trip of the offseason. I 🏂, he 🎿, then we drank hot chocolate. Perfect.
It was fun pretending to be a @gmfb co-host for a day... no one kicked me out or hazed me or anything. Thanks guys!
Another season in the books ✌🏽
