It is the JR Sport Brief show here on CBS Sports Radio. Happy Monday to you. I hope you had a good one. I'm going to have me a good time here for the next three hours. I hope you hang out.
You could do what you want, but I'm going to have a good time. Thank you so much to my main man, Carlos Ortiz, holding it down in New York City. I'm coming to you live from Atlanta, Georgia, where the Falcons are spending free agent money. We got teams all over the NFL.
They just, they spending money all over the damn place. In the legal tampering period. NFL doesn't take any breaks, do they? We got a legal tampering period. We have the official start of free agency. Last week, we got the franchise tag deadline.
It's just, this is all over the place. I get started every single week night. 10 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Pacific.
I hope you're doing good. Because what do we do? Did we lose? We lost an hour? Is that what we did?
Yeah, spring forward. I explained that to somebody the other day talking to one of my friends. He's just like, hey, well, yeah, don't we don't we get an extra hour of sleep?
I said, I said, no. Since you fall back, you spring forward to 2 a.m. becomes 3 a.m. and you lose an hour. So wherever you at, I hope you're good. If you want to listen to the show anytime, all the time, it's real simple. You can always tune in on the free Odyssey app. Thank you to everybody locked in on your local CBS Sports Radio affiliate. Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of stations all over North America. How else can you listen? Sirius XM Channel 158 and everybody on a smart speaker.
If you missed last hour of the show, hit hit rewind on the Odyssey app. We talked about everything going on with March Madness. We had college basketball expert Deshaun Tate come on and join us. And he knows everything about this stuff.
I mean, why why are you telling me about the most obscure team? Who has time to sit down and learn and watch and absorb this all day? Well, Deshaun Tate does.
And so if you still trying to fill something out or sneak in an office pool or sneak into one, go ahead and hit rewind and listen to that interview with Deshaun Tate. Right before we went to break, we talked about some of the movement going on in college basketball. Carlos is here with us. Carlos, you went to Iona, you said, right? Iona? Gales? Go Gales. I did it one year.
Knocked out my masters just that quickly. Beautiful. So is Rick Pitino doing illegal stuff there too or no? Not as far as my knowledge goes, but, you know, he was cleared of any wrongdoing in Louisville, so to speak. Listen, it doesn't bother me. He's not going to be my coach pretty soon. So, you know, if he is going to do something, it's not going to fall. It's not going to fall into school. Rick Pitino doesn't do the illegal stuff.
He just oversees other people doing the illegal stuff. And who knows where Rick Pitino is going to go? We talked about Damon Stoudemire. Damon Stoudemire is heading here to Georgia Tech right down the, well, actually right down the street from me here in the studio. And we know Chris Beard, everything that went down in Texas out in Austin is no longer a concern.
He is now the head coach at Ole Miss. And so we got a lot to get into and talk about over the next couple of weeks when it comes down to college basketball. We have the first four games that will take place tomorrow. I'm real invested in a lot of the players, less the teams. I ain't filling out no bracket. I just want to watch basketball. And that's my favorite part about March Madness.
And so we'll keep you up to date on everything as we continue on with the tournament here. Who gets booted? Who comes in? Who's not in? We know there's no North Carolina.
There's no Michigan. And the world will continue to turn and productivity will go down all over North America. And now we got to talk about this. Yeah, this. This being, well, let's just give it an overarch. Jimmy Garoppolo is now going to the Raiders and that's fine. That's the first news that came down the pipe. Let's let's go through this.
Let's back up even more. Today, Monday, January 13th was the open period or opening period for legal tampering in the NFL, which is free agency. Free agency doesn't officially start until Wednesday.
But teams could come to agreements with players and their agents starting at about noon. And so that's exactly what happened. One of the first things we heard. Jimmy Garoppolo is going to the Raiders.
And in my brain, I said to myself, oh, well, that's great. Raiders have been looking for QB and now they got Jimmy G and he's back with McDaniels. They were there with each other in New England with the Patriots.
And then I said, whoa. The New York Jets are now down. Another quarterback. Derek Carr had his introductory press conference with the Saints on on on Saturday. And Derek Carr already rubbing all the great people of New Orleans the wrong damn way. They asked Derek Carr, hey, hey, Derek, you're here in New Orleans. What's the first thing you had to eat? This man had the nerve to kind of chuckle and laugh and say, me and my wife ate Chipotle.
In New Orleans. Derek Carr should get smacked. He said, oh, yeah, we didn't know what to do. Derek Carr, I don't know what to do. So we ate Chipotle.
That's insulting. Derek Carr could have called up Zion Williamson and asked Zion where he eats. It's crazy because Derek Carr also said he had a chance to talk to Drew Brees and he said Drew Brees had a big impact on his decision. But besides that, when you actually got there, you could not ask Drew Brees where to eat. But besides that, this is what Derek Carr said about his conversation with Drew Brees.
Listen to this. I have so much respect for him as more as a person and as a dad, I've watched him at the Pro Bowl, you know, sitting there with his kids and the way that his kids admire him and talk about him. And you can tell he's a genuine person. And so a lot of what he had to say was going to carry weight with me. And so I won't get into all the details because, you know, some of that was private to him and to me.
But a lot of what he said is, you know, probably why I'm sitting here today. OK, great. Terrific. Congratulations.
Welcome to New Orleans, one of the best places to eat and live in America. And this is Derek Carr. I don't like Derek Carr anymore. I'm serious. I don't like him anymore based off of this. This is this man talking about eating Chipotle.
Listen to this. You know, with all the great food, the first place we went was Chipotle because we didn't know anything. And we walked in there and we couldn't get out of there because of the love from everyone in that in that building. And, you know, they were taking pictures and just welcoming us, you know, to the city, telling us anything that we need. They're here for us.
And you could already feel the southern hospitality and the home feeling of it. Boo. Boo.
Boo again. Chipotle. And Carlos says, I don't I don't got nothing wrong with Chipotle, but not New Orleans. Like eat that.
Eat that on like the 15th day when you just got to grab something real quick. That's sickening. And I'm like, well, I can't say I'm not going to say I like the Saints. I like New Orleans. I do.
And I can't even say that. Well, because I'm in Atlanta. I like both.
What's wrong with me? Saints fans hate the Falcons. Falcons hate the Saints.
And I feel like I'm stuck somewhere in the middle. My bad. But anyway, good luck to Derek Carr. Not really. Don't like him anymore.
I would have left the press conference. And then Jimmy G. He's he's a writer. And then I said to myself. We got all these pieces from quarterbacks that are moving around. And then we got Aaron Rodgers. The New York Jets made it clear we want to find a veteran. To move Zach Wilson to the bench, we want to find a veteran to win now. And the New York Jets had options.
And I say had because it was in past tense. The New York Jets had options. Aaron Rodgers was option number one. I'd say Derek Carr was option number two as he met with the New York Jets. Option number three was Jimmy Garoppolo.
And then when you start thinking about option number four, man, we start really going into the the hypotheticals. Oh, my God. The Jets.
They're going to have to bring in and go hard for Lamar Jackson. OK. Oh, my God. The Jets are going to have to just bring in Jacoby Brissett. Oh, my God.
Are you sure about that? Two out of the three legitimate options for the Jets are gone. Aaron Rodgers is going into his cave. He has gone into his hole. He has done his darkness cleanse.
He's been on his retreat and he's come out. He's done a podcast in front of a fireplace. Mark Murphy, the general manager, the president, excuse me, the president and CEO of the Packers.
He spoke to the media last week, I think Channel two up in Green Bay. And Mark Murphy was just like, yeah, this is this is looking done with Aaron here. He said the situation is is almost reminiscent of Brett Favre when he went to the Jets. Listen to what Mark Murphy said.
It was very early in my tenure. So I remember it very well with with Brett's situation. And, you know, it's kind of that happens in our game. You know, nobody, very few players play for only one team. And, you know, obviously, Brett had a great career. Aaron had a great career here. And regardless of what happens, you know, Aaron will be in the pro football Hall of Fame.
He'll be in our Hall of Fame and we'll bring him back and retire his number. But this is just one of the things that you go through as a team. You know, again, we want to try to achieve something that's good for both Aaron and us. OK. Yeah, yeah. We want to achieve something that's good for for him and us.
But, yeah, it's time to move on and and it would be preferred for us to both find what we want. And obviously that's not them together. We found additional footage of Aaron Rodgers. So he came out of the cave. He did a podcast. The New York Jets went to go visit him and wine and dine him and kiss his backside.
And then he was out over the weekend. Aaron Rodgers was at a charitable event. And Brandon Marshall, who is one of the biggest, largest human beings, he had the former wide receiver.
He's one of the biggest humans you will ever see in your life. You can't miss him. He was out there for his I Am Athlete podcast. And Brandon Marshall, former wide receiver for the Bears. The Jets.
Who else am I missing? The Dolphins. Brandon Marshall is yelling at Aaron Rodgers, trying to get his attention, just trying to figure out when the hell this man is going to let everybody know his decision. Is he playing for the Jets? Is he going to retire?
Is he moving to the moon? Listen to Brandon Marshall try to call him and listen to Aaron Rodgers say, yeah, I understand there's a time limit. Listen to this interaction. A-Rod.
A little bit of chemistry here. What we doing, A-Rod? Stay tuned. Stay tuned. How long we got to wait? Well, I think it won't be long. There's a time, there's a time limit.
There's a time limit. Did he see everybody moving today? What was he waiting on? Because he likes listening to everybody bloviate and talk about it. He wants to hear it on CBS and every play. What was his deal?
That's not it. I guess Brandon Marshall is he's trying to encourage everybody, or at least encourage him to be a Jet or encourage Jet fans. Brandon Marshall went on to tell this man, hey, you think about the Jets? You could be one of the greatest of all time.
Check the numbers when you get there. Organizations have history, right? It's about the people that made those organizations. So you're telling me I played two years for the Jets. That doesn't count? No, it does. You were part of the history of the organization. Okay, great.
So, try Major Brooklyn? Up here. Okay, he's, Brandon Marshall is a damn good wide receiver. He was nice with the Jets, with Fitzpatrick, and he was also out there with Cutler. And he was down in Miami, but who cares about Brandon Marshall? We're talking about this man Aaron Rodgers. He can hold the conversation.
That's not about, well, he was being asked about himself, so I guess so. The Jets are screwed either way. I'm sorry.
There's no more choices. When I'm not here on CBS Sports Radio, I'm spending Saturday afternoons in New York City on WFAN. Over the past two and three weeks, I've been talking to New York Jets fans who have wanted Derek Carr because he's safe. I've had Jets fans call me and tell me that the Jets need to get Jimmy Garoppolo. And I'm like, his injury history?
You sure? And then you have a segment who say, yeah, yeah, we should get Aaron Rodgers and just swing for the fences. New York Jets don't have a choice now.
The New York Jets and their future and what they do, it's in the hands of Aaron Rodgers. And this is what he wanted all along. Because he needs the attention.
He wants the attention. Aaron Rodgers will tell you that he doesn't, that if you don't want to listen to him, don't pay attention. He's unavoidable. If you live here on planet Earth and you like the NFL, you can't avoid this man. Wouldn't it be something if he decides to just quit? He's probably just going to wake up and do what I think he is and just join the Jets. He's just dragging us out at this point. This is like a case of misery, love, company.
An unavoidable situation. The New York Jets, who haven't won a championship since 1969, have to bring in another Packers quarterback. Who unfortunately is much more into himself than I feel like any NFL player in recent memory.
You know, we tend to slap the diva label on wide outs and wide receivers. Aaron Rodgers will do a podcast just to tell you he hasn't made up his mind yet. And then tell you if you don't like what he just said, just don't listen. Why are you saying it?
Because he needs the attention because this is therapeutic to him. Well, if he goes to New York City, he's going to get all of it. Over time, the New York Jets have had Mark Sanchez. Sam Darnold, who's now going to be a member of the 49ers. Chad Pennington. They even had Boomer Esiason as a former QB. Ken O'Brien. Vinny Testaverdi.
Old Vinny Testaverdi. The New York Jets have just been unfortunately a quarterback graveyard. And wouldn't it be appropriate if Aaron Rodgers goes to the Jets and that's the last stop for him where his bones get buried as well?
It's almost like a perfect match. How many people in Green Bay have told us here on the airwaves over the past few weeks, they're sick of the guy. They're ready for Aaron Rodgers to move on. We don't want you in Green Bay anymore. The Packers don't want you.
Last year they committed 150 million dollars to you. And here you are just at the end of the season again dragging on whether or not they want you and whether or not you want to stay. We got so many players who have moved on already. Aaron Rodgers don't know what he wants to do. You want to talk about Brandon Marshall being a bear?
Tremaine Edmonds is a bear. I just told you about Jimmy Garoppolo being a raider. Jameis Winston looks like he'll be back with the Saints on a new deal.
We got all these players moving around. Jesse Bates is coming here to Atlanta to play for the Falcons. Everybody's finding a home except for Aaron Rodgers. He's keeping everybody waiting. And I think he should go to the Jets.
Because misery loves company. And when you have an organization like the Jets who have unfortunately over their history been miserable, bring on Aaron Rodgers. The New York Jet players certainly think that'll be the case.
Tre Wingo shared today that it's basically a done deal. Just do it. Tell everybody you're going to keep playing and that you want to go to the Jets.
Get it over with. The New York Jets and their fans have suffered since 1970. Aaron Rodgers to the Jets. Let's get it done. And the Jets, I feel bad for them. Not really.
All of the options are done. There's a wide gap between Aaron Rodgers and Jacoby Percette. After them is me.
That's how wide the gap is. It's the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio. 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS.
I got a simple question here. Are you tired of the Aaron Rodgers drama? Should Aaron Rodgers go play for the New York Jets?
Or do you think Aaron Rodgers should just retire? Me? Go sign up for the Jets. It'll be the greatest one-season drama show ever. I'm going to take your phone calls on the other side. We'll get into some of these other free agent signings.
It's the JR Sport Reshow, CBS Sports Radio. Kevin Matt talks with Matt Hardy. There's nothing like a wrestling fan, you know, for better or for worse. How do you handle that though? We're talking about people talking about your family, what they don't know about your family or your brother or you. How does one handle that from a day to day basis? Something I joke about with the young bucks all the time. I said if you would vanity search Matt Hardy on Twitter, I said after you got through a hundred replies, you'd want to quit the business and never be seen again.
It's just, you just learn to deal with it. You know what I mean? It's the Kick Rocks Wrestling Podcast with Evan T. Maxx. Subscribe now on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts.

855-212-4CBS, that's 855-212-4CBS. The legal period for tampering in NFL free agency took place. It pretty much opened at 12 p.m. Eastern today. And one of the first dominoes that you could say tipped over and fell or just kind of got put down is Jimmy Garoppolo. Jimmy Garoppolo has an agreement, a three-year contract with the Oakland Raiders. We know that Derek Hart made his decision at the end of last week to join the New Orleans Saints.
He had a whole press conference, introductory press conference on Saturday. We've seen other players in the NFL move around, especially at the quarterback position. Sam Darnold, no longer a member of the Carolina Panthers. He's going to be a backup for the 49ers.
I'm sure he's looking at their injury situation and hoping that they can go ahead and turn in. We've seen other quarterbacks move around. Geno Smith sticking around with Seattle. Daniel Jones resigning with the New York Giants. But then there's Aaron Rodgers keeping everything in a choke hold. And so the New York Jets, he is option number one for that squad. And he has them waiting. And we have heard dating back to last week, Mark Murphy on Friday, yeah, we're pretty much done with the man. You got Aaron Rodgers, Brandon Marshall. We played that audio for you in the last break. He's looking around and Brandon Marshall's just like, man, what are you waiting for? It's just like I know there's a time limit to this. I got a question for you.
I've had a lot of people call me from New York and Green Bay and Wisconsin and it's simple. What the hell do you want Aaron Rodgers to do? Should he go to the New York Jets? Should he quit? This man has vacillated, gone back and forth, can't make up his mind what he wants to do.
I think a lot of times when you got to do that, I don't care what it is in life. Just stop. Go home. But to me, Aaron Rodgers and the Jets is such an amazing combination. I say, y'all make it happen together.
Misery loves company, so do it. 855-212-4CBS. Let's go to Birmingham, Alabama and talk to Joe. You're on CBS Sports Radio. How you doing there, JR?
I'm good, Joe. I'd like to see him go to the Jets and get his brain beat in, but I wish he'd retire so we wouldn't have to listen to him ditch and cry all next year about his receivers. Can't catch the call. We'd have to listen to him for another year. Please retire.
Have a good evening. Thank you, Joe, for calling from Birmingham. He wants the man to go to the New York Jets to get his brains beat in.
But then he doesn't want to hear him whine and cry about his receivers, something that he just did in Green Bay. What a shock. 855-212-4CBS. Let's go to Colorado and let's talk to Rick. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Good evening, JR. I hope you're doing well this evening. I am. How about you?
I'm doing real good, sir. You know, in the last segment you mentioned that Aaron Rodgers just wants to get all the attention, you know? You can't stop talking about him. And there's so much other stuff going on, like WBC, spring training, March Madness. The Golden State Warriors are coming on.
My Nuggets are falling apart. So I just think there's a lot of other things to talk about besides Aaron Rodgers. And I really don't care what he does. Well, you cared enough to call up. And just to let you know, Rick, we just spent an entire hour talking about March Madness. I don't know if you heard it. Oh, I'm sorry. I missed that part. So I wish I had listened in on it, though.
Well, we'll go ahead and hit rewind. We just talked about it for an hour. The Golden State Warriors aren't on right now.
And Klay Thompson is lighting it up. We'll talk about that. No one in the show is saying, well, hold on, Rick, Rick, Rick, slow down. Okay, I'm sorry. You are sorry. Like, you're telling me, you know, what you want to hear about, and that's fine.
I have to determine what the majority of people want to hear about or have an interest in, and it may not necessarily fit in you, but here's the fact. You're still listening, and you're thought enough to call me, Rick. That's all that matters to me. That's fair.
That is fair. Yeah, because you want to know why, Rick? You want to know why people are talking about this?
It's not just me. You want to know why people – Aaron Rodgers is on the front page of every website and newspaper. Do you want to know why?
Well, the only thing I can figure is he's celebrity, you know? Yeah, because people care. And I'm sorry to tell you, Rick, there's more interest in Aaron Rodgers than the WBC. Well, I can imagine there might be, you know? No, no, it's not might be. It is. Well, there's some exciting baseball there being played by WBC.
I mean, who would have thought that the Czech Republic would even have a team in the tournament, but they qualify, you know? I found excitement in New York City watching two cockroaches fight to the death on the A train, so… You know, you might have bet on one of them or another, huh? No, I'm not too much of a bettor, no.
But it's exciting. Yeah, well, I appreciate your time, Jayar, you know? And I didn't mean to come at you like that, but, you know, I'm just kind of sick of Aaron Rodgers myself. Well, you have a good evening, sir. There you have it. Thank you, Rick, for calling from Colorado. See, everybody's sick of the man. Matt is calling from Seattle.
You're on the JR Sport Reshow. What's up, Matt? Yeah, I think Aaron Rodgers should sign with the Jets.
Okay, is there a particular reason why? Well, they needed a quarterback. If they had a veteran quarterback this past season, they would have gone to the playoffs. Wilson's not ready yet. Yeah, they would have gone to the playoffs if they had a veteran. And it's crazy to hear the New York Jets, after the fact, pretty much tell everyone, yeah, Zach Wilson wasn't ready. Their offensive coordinator, Michael Flohr, stood in front of the media post-season and said, yeah, we made a mistake by not bringing in a veteran.
And how about this? This is even more of a gut punch to, I guess, New York Jets fans. Mike White, who over the past two years has, and he ain't been out there slinging a rock all over the place, but he's been serviceable when he's been there.
He gave, he gave Jet fans hope. Mike White is getting $16 million by the Miami Dolphins to back up Tua. Now, they're expecting Tua Tonga Veloa to miss some games now, huh? Mike White is like, man, I go to Florida. He has a chance to be a backup.
And with Tua, he's certainly going to have a chance to play. Look at Mike White trying to go out here and get that money. Bill is calling from Wisconsin. You're on the chair of our Support Brief Show. What's up, Bill?
Hey, guys. Yeah, I would have liked to see Air Rogers come back, but I can't blame him as far as Air Rogers goes. I really would like to see upper management, Cootie, Mark Murphy, Matt LaFleur, all their heads on a planet for the bumbling of him last year, for signing him to that big, huge deal so they basically couldn't get anybody in here, but they didn't even try.
He was on your show multiple times, and they could have brought in a veteran while he was receiving a help call. The first seven games of the season when he was throwing moon balls down the field, meaning throwing away the hell up in the air and waiting for a guy to go underneath it because the guy ran the wrong routes, and then he put his hands up in the air, basically saying, you guys basically threw the whole season away last year. That was a frickin' joke last year. But you want him to stay? I'd like to see him stay, and I'm going to tell you why. Because you've got all these guys restructuring their contracts, Jordan Love is unproven. If they're going to get rid of them, then they should have been talking about bringing in the guy from Baltimore.
Lamar Jackson? That's a Bill. That's a whole lot of fairy tale. I mean, the reality is you heard, yeah, well, I don't want to do fairy tale. We heard the president and the CEO basically kick Aaron Rodgers to the curb. We heard that last week.
So you can talk about what happened. Yeah, what happened happened, and now we're at a place where it's time to move on. That's it. That's where we're at. And so he's either going to quit, and of course there's a chance that he remains in Green Bay, and if that happens, he's even more of a diva than I think he is.
It's the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio. We've had a lot of players move on. Man, we even got other players who are just like, trade me, release me, move me. We're going to take a break. When we come back, I'm going to get some more of your calls.
855-212-4CBS, and I'm going to run through. This is an extensive list. I'm going to give you the biggest names that will be in new places or have new deals. And then also, I got to tell you about Klay Thompson. This man has lost his mind tonight.
Klay Thompson is possessed. It's the JR Sport Reshow on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio.
You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, bro, good night, bro. I enjoy your show, man. Every night I get in trouble with the wife listening to your show all late. Well, next time, you got to invite her to listen. Yeah, man, I'm about to get a glass of wine or something to listen with me because it should be entertaining so she'll be on it talking smack. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. Yeah, I'm here for the wives, the spouses, the partners. The JR Sport Brief Show is here for everybody.
855-212-4CBS, before I have to get back to the phone lines. There's a couple of things. I want to run through some of the additional free agent movement or players that have agreed to move on or come to agreement with teams. They can officially sign starting on Wednesday. But in the midst of all of this taking place, right now in the Bay, in San Francisco, the Golden State Warriors lead the Phoenix Suns. They're about five minutes left and a third. And the Warriors lead 85-78. Klay Thompson woke up today, and I'll use a new cliche here. Klay Thompson chose violence.
And not in the way of physical violence, but in basketball violence. Klay Thompson finished the first half with 33 points. He had eight threes. He was 8 of 12 from downtown. He was 12 of 18 overall from the field. Klay Thompson is what you would call unconscious. And here in the second half so far, he hasn't added any additional points.
He still has 33. He's taken, let's see, he's taken three more shots. He missed all three of those shots. Klay Thompson still makes no sense. Three points in the first half, eight threes, that's just, that's mind numbing. If I could shoot a basketball like that, then I'd be in the NBA. But there haven't been too many guys in NBA history who can just automatically get hot and just drill everything like him. Klay Thompson makes no sense when he's on one of these trips.
He's like a psycho out there. We'll keep you up to date on that game as the Phoenix Suns are trying to claw back and there's a lot of room left. Back to the NFL. Yes, everybody's waiting on Aaron Rodgers. There's been so many moves that have taken place today.
Here are just a few. Patrick Peterson is going to be moving on from the Minnesota Vikings in that terrible, I can't say it any other way, those defensive backs were crap where they couldn't play together. And Patrick Peterson has agreed to a two-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Von Bell. Von Bell is moving on from the Cincinnati Bengals. Von Bell is now going to be a Carolina Panther.
We also know there's a Cincinnati Bengal who's moving on. Jesse Bates came to an agreement, four years, $64 million with the Falcons. The Falcons are certainly moving on.
They are spending a lot, a lot of money. The Falcons have allocated funds from the offensive line, re-signing Lindstrom. They've added money to their defensive line.
We've seen Tremaine Edmonds talk about defenders. He's no longer on the Buffalo Bills. He's now moving on to the Chicago Bears. Jason Kelce. Jason Kelce will be back.
I know a lot of people talked about whether or not he was going to return, whether or not Jason Kelce was going to dip. He has a podcast, I'm sure you know this, with his brother, the New Heights Podcast. I actually saw a video of this earlier today, and I want you to hear the audio. Howie Roseman decided to celebrate the return of Jason Kelce by having shots, like they were taking celebratory drinks with his return. If you want to listen to two people drink on the radio, here's your chance. This is Howie Roseman, Jason Kelce celebrating his return.
Take a listen. Let's celebrate this right now. A little mezcal, a little phosphoro.
You know, we've got two kinds right here, Kelce. Alrighty. We're going to celebrate. Which one is this one? This is the panko. Geez, that is a half, that's mine? Yeah. We're doing it by body type. And here's my 119 pound.
This is my weight class. Oh my goodness. And to next year in Vegas, baby.
Vegas, baby. We've got a long way to go. Let's go.
Wow, okay. I mean, if Jason Kelce is going to take a shot, yeah, I guess he would have two or three times the amount of Howie Roseman, because he's about two to three times bigger than he is. Other movement going on. Well, we know Derek Carr is moving. Marcus Davenport. He's on his way out from the Saints. He's now going to be a Minnesota Viking. Dalvin Tomlinson is moving on. No longer a Minnesota Viking. He's going over to the Cleveland Browns.
We got movement all over the place. And when we get to the top of the hour, I'm going to get to more of your calls. And I want to talk about the team that I've been most impressed with so far in this period, even though we haven't officially hit free agency. Let's hit the phones. Let's go to San Diego and let's talk to Lee.
You're on CBS Sports Radio. Lee, what's on your mind, man? Hey, JR. What's up, man? How are you? What's up? I want to touch on this Aaron Rodgers thing. I'm kind of tired of it. And I think Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, and you can throw Matthew Stafford in there, too.
They need to go on, like, a fishing trip together on one of their yachts. Why do you want to get rid of Matthew Stafford? Because I can't believe he won the Super Bowl with the Rams after being in Detroit all that time. Oh, okay.
That doesn't sound like it makes sense to me, but anyway, what else you got? Well, it's a big mistake for the Chargers to get rid of Austin Eckler. The dude's a beast. I don't think he's made a backwards step his whole career. Unless the line collapses, he's burning linebackers two or three yards down the field.
Well, I wouldn't necessarily – well, Lee, thank you for calling for San Diego. I wouldn't necessarily worry about Austin Eckler leaving right now. From everything that I've heard, read, or seen, he's requested a trade because he doesn't feel that he's going to be paid commensurate to his production. And we know he's one of the most dynamic running backs in the league when you think about his touchdowns, his ability to catch the ball, and his ability to go out there and run it. You don't know what the hell he's going to do when the ball is snapped. Is Justin Herbert going to hand it off? Is he going to pitch it to him? Is he going to throw it to him in a short yardage situation?
You have no idea. And so I can imagine he wants to get paid like one of the top running backs may be in that $13, $14, $15 million range. And so this could just be a matter of posturing. Is he going to come back to the Chargers?
Are the Spanos? Are they going to just say, hey, here, take a check? I'm not so sure. But I would wait a little bit longer. They don't have to grant him his desire. They don't have to tell him, yeah, yeah, go talk to everybody.
Go be traded. It's not necessary. And so Austin Eckler don't necessarily close the door on that one. I wouldn't be overly concerned about that at this point. But he is someone that we should probably watch and pay attention to. There's some other running backs we have to see what type of deals that they end up with. Saquon Barkley tagged by the New York Giants approximately $10 million per year.
And then you also have Josh Jacobs. He was tagged by the Vegas Raiders, $10 million per year. And so what type of potential deals will they get? Or are they going to have to sit around and play on the tag?
Time will tell. We know the New York Giants brought back Daniel Jones. And then for the Raiders, you know, they're going to be have an urgent need to just hand Josh Jacobs over a long term deal. They just paid Garoppolo. We'll talk about that. Get some more of your calls. It's the Charon Sport Reshow, CBS Sports Radio. Who's done the best in free agency so far for the tampering period?
