It depends on how his rehab goes and whether or not he’s cleared to play. Avril said in January he’d like to play again.
I believe so, Avril told NFL Network’s Steve Wyche on The Aftermath. Right now it’s all about recovery. I had surgery. I’m in the process of recovering. It’s a long process, a long journey. When I get to the end of that, then I’ll figure out what’s next.
Latest Cheerleader Scandal Challenges NFL’s Hands-Off Policy More The NFL’s cheerleader problems are back. The New York Times reported Wednesday that cheerleaders for the Washington D.C. franchise were made to serve as escorts and pose topless for season ticket holders in Costa Rica in 2013. Earlier this year, a former New Orleans Saints cheerleader sued the team, saying she was improperly fired for posting a photo of herself online that the team deemed too revealing. These incidents follow lawsuits from several years ago from cheerleaders claiming wage theft over contracts that failed to pay cheerleaders minimum wage.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, $8.26 million of Shazier’s $8.718 million was converted, which means he can receive the money immediately.

Shazier is on the physically unable to perform list and will miss the entire 2018 season after suffering a spinal injury against the Cincinnati Bengals last season.

The Patriots trade up twice. This happened in 2012, when they slid up from No. 27 to No. 21 to land Jones, and then from No. 31 to No. 25 to get Hightower. There’s a feeling the Patriots might pull off another blockbuster to reach the top 10 and take Mayfield, but they are more likely to make more subtle moves if there are one or two players they like at quarterback or a defensive position.
