NFL Rumors On Julio Jones Contract, Trent Williams Trade, Michael Thomas Extension & LeSean McCoy

NFL teams are starting to report to training camp this week & there are plenty of NFL rumors & news on potential trades, holdouts & contract extensions for a handful of players this NFL offseason. Some of the most notable players involved in these rumors include Julio Jones, Trent Williams, Michael Thomas, Melvin Gordon, Tom Brady & LeSean McCoy. Julio Jones & Michael Thomas are 2 WRs who are expected to sign long-term contract extensions before the 2019 NFL season. Both players want to be paid at least $20 MM per year which would make them the highest paid WRs in the NFL. Julio Jones’ could agree to a new deal with the Falcons as early as this week, while Michael Thomas & the Saints were reportedly $4 MM apart in their latest contract talks. 

Some NFL trade rumors coming to light include Melvin Gordon & Trent Williams who are reportedly holding out of NFL training camp. Melvin Gordon wants a new contract & has reportedly told the Chargers to either sign him or trade him before the season. Will we see a Melvin Gordon trade in the near future? Trent Williams is apparently holding out because he is fed up with the Washington Redskins’ medical staff. Redskins doctors discovered a growth on Williams’ head in 2018 & he had surgery on the growth in February. Williams is not happy with how the Redskins have handled his medical situation & he has reportedly demanded to be traded or released from the organization. Trent Williams is widely considered as a top 5 LT in the NFL & he would be a huge loss for the Redskins’ offensive line. Will the Redskins be forced to trade Trent Williams?

In other NFL rumors, Tom Brady is entering the final year of his contract & the Patriots could extend the 6-time Super Bowl champ at some point in 2019. Brady is 42 years old so the Pats might wait until mid-season to see how Brady is performing to see if they are comfortable signing him for a few more years. LeSean McCoy is another player whose NFL future is in doubt. He did not have a very productive season in Buffalo last year & he could be in danger of being cut by the Bills. The Bills signed T.J. Yeldon & Frank Gore during NFL free agency & they drafted Devin Singletary in the 2019 NFL Draft. Buffalo can save $6 MM by cutting McCoy. Finally, Chat Sports host Thomas Mott discusses the injury bug that has already hit the Atlanta Falcons on their first day of training camp. Safety J.J. Wilcox tore his ACL & defensive end Michael Bennett broke his ankle. How big of an impact will the Falcons injuries have on their defense in 2019? Find out on the latest edition of NFL Daily!
