Happy Monday, Everyone!

It’s the start of another beautiful week, and it’s only going to get better as coverage for the NFL Scouting Combine starts this Thursday with quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends taking the field for testing and on-field workouts.

Thursday will also be the most important day for the Chargers as they are finally able to start filling in some of their boxes when it comes to this year’s quarterback class.

Oregon’s Justin Herbert Ranked 1st Ahead of LSU’s Joe Burrow by Anonymous Scout

Realistic Landing Spots for Chris Jones in 2020 NFL Free Agency

“He’s thrived at both defensive end and tackle and is a fit for virtually any team. Jones is productive as a pass-rusher (24.5 sacks over the last two years), he’s just 25 years old, and he carries some Super Bowl shine.”

Raiders will hold June mini-camp in Las Vegas, Gruden says

“If we can let everyone in, we will,” Gruden said during an in-arena interview prior to the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury fight at MGM Grand Garden. Gruden was sitting ringside with Raiders owner Mark Davis.”

The State of the AFC West: Why Raiders must be aggressive this offseason
