Chiefs and/or the NFL are expected to ta Antworten

As explained here on Sunday Sammy Watkins Jersey , the ke further action regarding receiver Tyreek Hill this week.For the NFL, the better description would be “any” action, because the NFL has flatly ignored HIll’s situation in the 87 hours and counting since the disturbing audio of Hill threatening Crystal Espinal and also debating whether Hill broke the arm of their three-year-old son and whether and to what extent Espinal has covered for Hill.The best move would be for the league to place Hill on the Commissioner Exempt list. In past cases, the league has opted not to invoke the paid-leave provision in the offseason, under the notion there’s far less attention being devoted by the public to the activities of NFL players. But Hill’s case has attracted plenty of attention, despite the league’s best efforts to publicly ignore it.The Chiefs already have essentially suspended Hill, keeping him away from all offseason activities “for the foreseeable future.” With the Chiefs possibly concerned that something more definitive could further inflame the relationship between Hill and Espinal, it’s better for the league to place Hill on paid leave while the justice system investigates the situation and, quite possibly, makes further league or team action moot. If Hill ultimately isn’t prosecuted, the league can then conduct its own investigation and impose discipline under the Personal Conduct Policy, whether for injuring his child, threatening the mother of the child Anthony Hitchens Jersey , not being truthful with law-enforcement officials, and/or any other possible violations flowing from the facts.None of this changes the reality, based on the audio, that Hill has forfeited the privilege of playing for the Chiefs or any other NFL team. Once Hill is on the Commissioner Exempt list, however, there will be no need to get to that conclusion now — even if that’s the conclusion that ultimately should be reached. The catch that Larry Fitzgerald secured late in the fourth quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday did nothing to change the outcome: another loss for Arizona in a season full of them.It was hardly meaningless to the veteran wide receiver.The catch moved Fitzgerald past Terrell Owens into second place on the NFL's career reception yardage list. He finished the Cardinals' 26-14 loss to the Chiefs with six catches for 50 yards, giving him 15,952 yards 鈥?behind only Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice."It happens to be Terrell Owens and I'm pretty close with T.O. His friendship and my relationship with him is invaluable to me," Fitzgerald said afterward. "He means a great deal to me, and to be mentioned in the same breath with him means a lot to me."The biggest lament for Fitzgerald, though, was that the yardage he needed came when the outcome was decided. He was shut out on three targets in the first half as the Chiefs took a 20-7 lead."It's always important for us to try to get our good players involved, and we try to do it a little early. We didn't have an opportunity there Chad Henne Jersey ," Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said. "He didn't have any catches, rather, so we came out in the second half really trying to find ways to get him the football."By the time the Cardinals did, it was too late.Perhaps that was fitting considering Fitzgerald has pieced together one of the finest careers in NFL history relatively quietly, with some of his best seasons coming in the Cardinals' worst years. The 35-year-old Fitzgerald has had at least 100 receptions each of the past three seasons, and five times in his career, while piling up nine seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving.He has 40 catches for 407 yards and two touchdowns this season.And while Fitzgerald is almost certain to fall short of the numbers he is accustomed to producing, he is nevertheless providing another year of invaluable service: He's the steady, capable and wise veteran in the ear of Josh Rosen, who is expected to lead the Cardinals for years to come.The rookie quarterback had plenty of bright spots Sunday, even though he was sacked five times and threw a pair of costly interceptions. He threw a touchdown pass to David Johnson, kept the offense moving Kendall Fuller Jersey , and did a fair job of checking out of plays that were bound to go nowhere.He also made sure to find Fitzgerald down the stretch, ensuring he'd get his meaningful yardage."It's frustrating that it comes in another loss," Fitzgerald said, "but I think, offensively, we're on the field a lot more. Would have loved to have more points, but it's another step in the right direction. Almost 30 minutes of possession time, so I mean, we're on the field. We were better on third down today. But there's things we need to clean up."There are goals for Fitzgerald and the Cardinals (2-7) the rest of the way, too.Fitzgerald needs eight more receptions to pass Rice (1,281 with San Francisco) for the most in NFL history with one team. And the Cardinals can prove they're moving in the right direction under Wilks with a strong finish against a relatively tough schedule.The Raiders are next, but games against the Packers, Falcons Eric Murray Jersey , Chargers, Seahawks and Rams loom.Plenty of chances for Fitzgerald to add to his lasting legacy."This is something I'll think about when I'm done playing. I can look back and reflect on it at a later time, but today is not the day," he said. "It's nice to be able to do that with the same team, to have so many wonderful teammates that continue to fight regardless of our record. I know we're 2-7, but I love coming to work and playing for these coaches and playing with my teammates."It's a great group of men," he said, "and we just want to get it right."
