    I would not be surprised if Adam Humphries landed with the Jets. Gase signed Danny Amendola last season with the Dolphins; Humphries could be a similar option with the Jets, who desperately need some quality receivers.

    I agree on Justin Watson, with Arians and Byron Leftwich he's got almost no chance to start, regardless how well he performs. Yes, right now, the Buc's receiving group looks thin, but expect Arians to bring in a couple overrated oafs in free agency. Then expect more "suppa heroes" to be added via the draft. Hopefully he makes the team and gets more chances on offense next season. Watson only had 1 reception for 5 yards in 12 games as a rookie -- also had 6 special teams tackles, so he's considered a fine special teamer. Justin was an athletic freak (tall, fast, quick) coming from a Ivy League school and lasted until the latter rounds. A black with a similar skill set, also from a FCS school, would've likely been selected in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    One more Jets/Buccaneers note: Jets are going back to the 4-3 defense for the first time since 1996, I think? With that, there is a very good chance free agent defensive end Henry Anderson leaves the Jets for a 3-4 team. Bucs, by the way, are going from 4-3 to 3-4, with the hiring of ex-Jets head coach Todd Bowles. Anderson had his best season for Bowles in 2018 and was the Jets top defensive lineman. Don't be surprised if Anderson, a Georgia native, joins Bowles in Tampa! That could be, however, bad news for Carl Nassib, who also had a breakout season in 2018 for the Bucs.
    ________________

    Not sure any team was more white friendly than Miami from the early 1970's until about 1990. Particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Since then, they've almost been as bad (hostile towards white) as any team in the NFL, aside from the Arizona Cardinals. At the end of the 1980's Shula and Miami used first round picks on Bosa Sr. and Eric Kumerow. I don't remember either, as players, but Bosa, a defensive tackle, was looking real good early, but injuries cut his career far too short. Kumerow, a outside linebacker, is widely remembered by DWF's as a big-time draft bust. Bosa and Kumerow were great friends with the Dolphins and I believe Bosa Sr. married Kumerow's sister. The Kumerow's are also related to a infamous Chicago Mobster, who protected Al Capone. Not only is there athletic ability in the family, but a lot of size and toughness.
    ________________

    Finally, I rarely agree with Bucky Brooks from NFL.com, but he's spot on here: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap30...eal-josh-rosen-pick-kyler-murray-in-nfl-draft

    Brooks, no surprise, wants the Card's to ditch Abner after just one year and draft black quarterback Kyler Murray #1 overall. As much as I hate the Cardinals, I really hope they waste the #1 overall on Murray. Also, I do not want to see Nick Bosa wearing that red-clown suit of the Caste Cardinals. As far as Abner is concerned, perhaps he can backup another Bucky Brooks favorite, Dwayne Haskins, in Miami? Given South Florida area demographics, Abner (like Jay Fiedler) should be very popular with the very liberal denizens.

    The 1984 Dolphins team that went to the Super Bowl in Dan Marino's second season (when he broke the record for passing yardage when he threw for over 5,000 yards) wasn't as White as the undefeated '72 team that had 10 Whites starting on defense, but was still a pretty White team, including on D. By about 1990 it was shocking how black they had quickly become. You can trace the Caste System by tracking Don Shula's career -- standout, White friendly teams in Baltimore and the first part of his long tenure in Miami, followed by a rapid transformation, one that the Dolphins and all other NFL teams have followed ever since, varying only slightly in degree of black domination.

    If Shula is still mentally sharp, it would be interesting to ask him how and why Whites suddenly couldn't play defense or run or catch the ball, and if anything can be done to reverse this strange unexplained malady.

    Amendola is "iffy" to stay with the Dolphins despite leading them in receiving last season. And Devante Parker is apparently a goner, though Weenieworld still managed to find a way to once again employ "mouthwatering" when describing this first round bust. :facepalm:

    The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley considers Danny Amendola "iffy" to remain with the Dolphins

    Amendola carries a $6 million cap hit for 2019, one that can be wiped entirely off the books with no dead money charge. The 33-year-old was okay in his first season with the Dolphins, leading the team in catches and receiving yards while playing with abysmal quarterbacks. But the numbers overall were nothing to get excited about. Amendola does have familiarity with the coaching staff after playing for new OC Chad O'Shea in New England when he was the Patriots' WRs coach.

    The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley considers DeVante Parker "all but gone" from the Dolphins
    Parker carries a $9.387 million salary in the final year of his deal after the team previously picked up his fifth-year option. It's guaranteed for injury only, and by all accounts Parker is healthy, so the Dolphins can wipe their hands clean of him with no penalty. The former No. 14 overall pick, Parker has been a chronic underachiever in Miami. However, he just turned 26 last month and has mouthwatering size. Likely to enter one of the weakest free-agent classes at receiver in recent memory, Parker should have plenty of teams looking to give him another shot.

    Don, it should surprise no one that Amendola might be on his way out. As I noted above (post # 2578), outside of the odious Arizona Cardinals, no NFL team has been more hostile towards white athletes in the last 30 years than the Miami Dolphins. They looked like they might become less Caste in recent years, but that should all change with the hiring of Reggie McKenzie (ex-Raiders GM and racist on steroids), to go along with their young black GM Chris Grier (brother of ex-NHL-er Mike Grier) and their new AA hire for head coach. After Grier and McKenzie are done with free agency and the draft, expect the Dolphins to like the 2017 Raiders, except with a black quarterback instead of Derek Carr. Pro Bowl caliber linebacker Kiko Alonso might survive the purge, short term, because of his Cuban heritage being a selling point in South Florida.

    Speaking of the Cardinals, more and more "mock drafts" have them dumping Abner and selecting 5'8", Afro-Korean "stud" quarterback Kyler Murray first overall*. If they don't, hopefully they will grab Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State at some point in the top 10.

    I think the possibility became more likely this week when news came out that Abner was in a "minor car accident" and wrecked his Tesla.....Instead of taking the incident seriously, the future MSNBC talk-show host posted silly pictures** of the damaged car and joked about "NFL testing".....Not only is Abner Rosenstein a left-wing loon, who black athletes seem to absolutely detest (dating back to UCLA), but he comes off as a silly, spoiled "rich-kid" that can't take anything seriously. Cards need to move away from this clown as soon as possible. He's Blaine Gabbert 2.o, except with a much worse leadership skills.

    Breaking news, well not exactly. Jaguars ST/S Cody Davis has been kept on board for the 2019 season. A team leader in special teams Davis lead the unit in tackles and is considered much like the Patriots Matt Slater as an essential player.

    But how much mileage can we here at caste get out of a ST player who doesn't even return kicks? Sadly not much. Special team mascots aren't really that inspiring but I guess at the end of the day it is better than nothing.

    Davis was an UFA in 2013 whereas a similar ST/S player for the Panthers, Colin Jones was drafted in the 6th round in 2011.

    Both of these highly athletic safeties have more than a few things in common. Both have had trouble cracking the defensive lineup even though they have performed well when called upon. And both are dazzling and very fast players that have been relegated to special teams where they shine.

    Unless a player is returning punts and or kicks, which is still a step below being a starting WR or DB, special teams players get lost in the shuffle and usually can't distract from the caste steamroller narrative.

    When the Packers beat the Patriots in the 1997 SB, KR/PR Desmond Howard was the hero. Does anyone care that speedster RB Travis Jervey was blocking on the returns? I believe even Don Beebe was blocking on special teams in that game. Two white speedsters traveling in anonymity which sums up being a special teams mascot.

    But like I said it is better than being out of the league so good for Cody Davis and Colin Jones but it is still a shame they can't start in the defensive backfield. That lid keeps getting tighter despite the fact that black DB play in general has never been worse.

    Ethan Kilmer comes to mind when reading your post, Shadowlight. a terrific athlete with eye-popping measurables, Kilmer even lined up as a cornerback ... sort of, yet he was never given much of a shot to earn regular playing time outside of special teams.

    KC just signed Ebony Jenkum Manuel to a future contract. He joins Sideshow Muppet Mahomes as the KC qb room gets darker. Fat Bastard like a dark film room full of bright white smiles.

    Here we go again. Every offseason, like clockwork, Jeff Heath is being demoted by media know nothings:

    The offseason is an interesting time for NFL teams. It's an opportunity for franchises to add important pieces to their squads via free agency or the draft, which in turn results in changes to the depth chart.

    You may see someone who started for a team in 2018 turn into a role player or a backup not due to their play, but because someone else was brought in. These changes happen every year, andBleacher Report tried their hand at predicting which NFL starters could have their jobs stolen by free-agent signings.

    For the Dallas Cowboys, Bleacher Report looked to the secondary. Dallas doesn't have weak safeties by any measure, but teams are always looking to upgrade, which means Jeff Heath could see fewer snaps in 2019.

    Normally I don't give kickers second thoughts but the case of Bears kicker Cody Parkey is interesting. Parkey, who missed a filed goal at the end of the playoff game against the Eagles is set to be released by the Bears.

    Initially the media blamed Parkey for the loss and to their credit his black teammates stood up for him. But when it was discovered that the kick was actually blocked, all of a sudden things went quiet and the head coach Nagy got annoyed with the kicker after he made some TV appearances.

    Lost in this storyline was the fact that the drooling media coverage of the black Bears defense pretty much neglected to emphasize that their defense faltered when their season was on the line as the Eagles drove the ball right down their throats for the winning TD.

    Perhaps I am reading too much into this black run locker room dynamic that was very comfortable with the idea that the white kicker blew the game. Thus drawing away attention from the real reason they lost.

    But going back to earlier posts some here think there are similarities between Nagy and former caste hole Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio. And so far that seems to be the case.

    This upcoming draft will flesh out things perhaps once and for all. Out of the many teams and all the upcoming intrigue with the draft and post season moves I will admit if the Bears don't go full head caste in the draft I will be surprised. White stars will be available on offense though. They could use some RB help and obviously could upgrade at WR and TE.

    Will Nagy diversify or retrench? If he stays the course and plays by caste marching orders I predict the Bears will suffer the same fate as the Raiders. Make a noise for a short stretch before taking a dive into the abyss. And as the Raiders are finding out now, digging out of a hole is a long tedious process.

    Is the league concerned that terrific DB play will interrupt the pass happy offenses where black receivers get to be heroes? Seems like they are itching to have a Big 12 type of league where no defense is played for the most part.

    That is the only reason I can think of for anyone to consider giving star S Jeff Heath less playing time. Absurd notion to replace him. He played an all star level last season and was one of the key components to their very solid defense.

    Load up the league with all black defensive backfields and the NFL will finally get their wish as black receivers waltz into the end zone every other play. In order to fulfill that promise though the league must purge itself of smart fast tough tackling white DBs like Heath.

    Sure Ryan Nall along with WR Tanner Gentry are on their practice squad and it would seem logical both would be promoted to the team this coming season.

    But logic played no role last season when both had great preseasons which got them what? A demotion to the practice squad one of those thanks but no thanks type of things.

    Will Nagy be more receptive to them this season? If he didn't bite after they played well last year I have no reason to think he will ever pull the trigger on those two.

    That said there are plenty of white WRs and TEs to choose from in this draft.

    Nagy has yet to demonstrate to me any sort of tolerance for having a diverse squad and until he does I am going to remain highly skeptical of him and the Bears.

    Starting late this week with the combine through early April with the pro days the NFL will be quite active. The only "quiet" time will be the few weeks between early April and the draft in late April although even then I think there is college spring football. After the draft people start to turn their attention to spring/ summer sports including NHL/NBA playoffs, tennis, golf and of course baseball. Football, both pro and college, reenter the conversation late summer.

    Already rumors are flying and between now and right after the draft we should be able to discern the whole hog caste coaches from those that are more diverse tolerant.

    So unknown new HC of the Bengals Zac Taylor is starting off on the right foot by shopping 2017 combine hero WR John Ross. Ross has been a particular target here at caste and so far "our" predictions have been spot on. We wondered about durability and alas he was out his entire first season and missed the last stretch of games last season. My distaste for this player has been consistent having compared his build to a baseball shortstop.

    On the field his results have been pathetic. A 21-210 stat line doesn't even begin to tell the horror. That was on 58 targets. Bad stuff all the way around. They were force feeding him the ball and he still couldn't produce.

    Much like another media hero WR Tavon Austin, a 2013 8th pick overall, Ross was a 9th pick overall. Why were these suspect specimens chosen so high? Two answers, their blazing 40 yard dash times and the fact that they are black.

    In fact the media still thinks Ross is an untapped talent and he is still young but I think getting rid of him would be a smart move by the Bengals.

    WR Ryan Switzer has been a much better player than Ross so far. Last season Switzer had a 36-233 stat line on just 44 targets. Plus he is a proven smart and reliable KR and PR. Where was Switzer picked in the 2017 draft? The 4th round (133rd overall).

    Of course the irony of this Bengals rumor is with the combine coming up you know damn well the media and scouts will fall in love with another skinny black unskilled WR(s) who runs a fast 40 yard dash and you can bet the house someone will pick him/them early.

    I have a particular disdain for these type of speedy black athletes because the media rubs our noses in them every draft cycle.

    May they all fail as spectacularly as Ross has so far.

    The media/scouts love affair with black players with impressive athletic credentials verges or perhaps crosses over into homo erotic love. Why else would teams pick up players with tons of baggage and character issues?

    A perfect example is Cowboys DE Randy Gregory. Ever since his Nebraska days the media has drooled over his quick twitch talent. But this pot head has been suspended multiple times and now once again he has been cited. Look for another long suspension.

    On the field ( he has rarely played over the years due to suspensions) this season he made some plays and had 8 sacks. But he also made some of the worst bone headed plays imaginable and kept getting flagged for numerous idiotic things throughout the season.

    This brain dead pot head has been a useless NFL player yet because of his " mouth watering upside" this clown has been afforded the benefit of doubt time and again.

    Time to pull the cord once and for all and send him out to pasture where he can smoke his weed to his heart's content until he eventually turns into a vegetable.

    The whole John Ross thing would be funny if it were unexpected. As Shadowlight said many of us on this site were skeptical of him. I still remember when he ran his 40 and all the moronic announcers/commentators and twitter all heaped praise on him. Where are these folks now? Why aren't they saying they were wrong? As we see every year they all just sweep it under the rug and move on. Credibility means nothing. Glad to see we called it though.

    Packers will not resign Cobb. I'd love to see them bring in Beasley or Humphries as an immediate impact in the slot but won't hold my breath. If they choose to draft a slot WR Renfro, Walker, Miller, Isabella would all be fine options.

    It looks like they want to bring Clay Matthews back, but we shall see. Also holding out hope that GB cuts Jimmy Graham and Nick Perry. They could clear another 8mil in cap by doing so.

    **Also word is GB was not happy with Byron Bell or Justin McCray's play at RG. LG Lane Taylor may be on the hot seat as well. So it will be interesting to see how LaFleur replaces the sumos.


    Any bets on where Foles ends up?!

    Jax is supposedly the only team interested in signing Foles to be their starter. . .

    Ah typical. At the expense of Bortles.

    I'll say Carolina as my Dark horse candidate. Can Newton has same injury Andrew Luck had recently, could be a while before Black Superman plays again, if he ever does.

    In my opinion Nick Foles is a quality starter. While he is streaky when he gets hot he is red hot. Foles has shown he can play at the highest level and that you can win a Super Bowl with him. What more do you want?

    SF keeps first round bust around and will pay him $9 million to continue racking up an average of just over 2 sacks per season.

    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said the team will retain DE Arik Armstead

    A first-round pick back in 2015, Armstead is owed a little over $9 million under the terms of his fifth-year option. The 49ers could clear all of that off their books but cutting him, but they have decided to keep him around despite Armstead logging just nine sacks in four seasons. "We’re not into losing good players," Shanahan said. "I think he can take it to a whole other level. I hope to see him do that this year."
