Mike Harmon: Can’t dismiss Manning allegations

Posted on 17 February 2016 by WNST Staff

Mike Harmon caught up with Nestor this week, and among a variety of topics, they discussed the ongoing Peyton Manning scandal that has recently rocked the NFL landscape.

While many people heard about these allegations for the first time in the days after Super Bowl 50, Mike was aware of the rumors surrounding his time at Tennessee.

“This is something that has been sitting in the ‘left nav’ of a couple of websites for quite a while, to go into those technical web terms of left navigation as you go through your main articles,” Harmon said. “It’s something that’s been percolating in the past, but that’s just what it is, because of the settlement and such, everybody had kind of put it aside.”

“Some are trying to dismiss it, but you can’t,” Harmon said. “Some are trying to parse through and figure out if it’s just a locker room prank versus an assault.”

To listen to their full conversation, listen here:

Orioles’ hot stove rumblings surround Beltran, Wieters, Markakis

Posted on 16 November 2013 by WNST Staff

Rumblings out of MLB’s annual fall GM meetings included some interesting rumors surrounding the Baltimore Orioles late this week.

The first from Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal is particularly interesting…

Carlos Beltran will turn 37 in April, but is coming off a season with slash lines of .296/.339/.491 with 24 home runs and 84 RBI. It’s not known immediately what the market is for the outfielder with a propensity for big postseason hits, but considering Marlon Byrd got a 2 year, $16 million deal and it also 36 you would have to assume the market for Beltran would be greater.

Rosenthal says the Orioles are looking to dump a salary in order to pursue Beltran, throwing out the name of Matt Wieters as a possibility. This is logical considering a report of his from earlier in the week regarding the catcher and 1B Chris Davis, a fellow Scott Boras client.

(Rosenthal was clearly referring to closer Jim Johnson there.)

The other issue surrounding Beltran is that he isn’t a left fielder, the only outfield position the Birds’ currently have open. So how could the O’s both trade away a large salary and get Beltran on the field? From SNY New York…

SNY did go on to report that the Orioles are “not eager” to deal their former first round pick and Gold Glove winning right fielder.

So Orioles fans, what do you think of the rumors surrounding the Birds in the early stages of the Hot Stove season?

Flacco, Ravens agree to terms on record-setting contract

Posted on 01 March 2013 by Luke Jones

After reaching the pinnacle of his career in being named Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XLVII, quarterback Joe Flacco will now break the bank with a long-term contract with the Ravens making him the highest-paid player in NFL history.

As first reported by FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, the sides have reached an agreement in principle on a long-term deal that will officially be completed on Monday, the last day the Ravens would have been able to designate Flacco with the franchise tag. The quarterback will sign a six-year deal worth $120.6 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The record-setting deal comes after Flacco held more negotiating leverage over the Ravens than any star player in recent memory.

The news of the long-term agreement will alleviate salary cap concerns for the Ravens as a deal is expected to create a more manageable 2013 cap figure for the franchise quarterback than either the exclusive or non-exclusive franchise tag numbers for this season.

Flacco’s agent Joe Linta and Ravens vice president of football administration Pat Moriarty entered contract negotiations in Indianapolis last week for the first time since talks broke down last August with the sides unable to come to an agreement. Talks were described as cordial, but a contract wasn’t considered imminent until the news broke Friday evening. Linta said Friday the Ravens agreed to all their terms, but they will look over the deal before Flacco signs it on Monday.

Though it doesn’t qualify as an official statement, the Ravens’ Twitter account announced that general manager Ozzie Newsome has confirmed that the parameters of the contract are in place with some details and language that will need to be finalized.

After passing on the Ravens’ best offer last summer, Flacco went on to throw 11 touchdowns and no interceptions in one of the greatest postseason performances in NFL history to lead the Ravens to their second world championship on Feb. 3. The fifth-year quarterback cemented his place as one of the league’s top signal-callers with the remarkable four-game run against Indianapolis, Denver, New England, and San Francisco.

Playing in his first Super Bowl, Flacco went 22-for-33 for 287 yards and three touchdowns in the 34-31 victory over the 49ers. The 28-year-old threw for 22 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, and 3,817 yards in the regular season.

Several teammates used Twitter to offer their congratulations on Friday evening as the Ravens now know their franchise quarterback will remain in Baltimore for years to come.

“Dinner and a few nights on Joe Flacco when we get back,” wrote Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice, who added that the new contract was “well deserved.”

In his five-year career, the 2008 first-round pick has passed for 17,633 yards, 102 touchdowns, and 56 interceptions for a career passer rating of 86.3.

The Ravens are expected to turn their attention immediately toward their other unrestricted free agents and the rest of the offseason as securing the quarterback long-term was their paramount objective before anything else. General manager Ozzie Newsome now has the opportunity to use the franchise tag on another player, but the executive said at last month’s end-of-year press conference that the organization would not tag anyone else should they reach a new contract with Flacco.
