Even if the Raiders were to figure out some way to bring Sheldon Adelson back as an investor in their efforts to relocate to Las Vegas, it’s unlikely NFL owners would approve the casino mogul owning part of the team.
“Gambling exists throughout the world. We need to make sure there is a fine line between sports gambling the and the NFL,” league commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday during his annual Super Bowl-week news conference. “We want to protect the integrity of our game.”
“There are rules are in place and the Raiders have not asked for those rules to be changed,” Goodell continued, adding that a casino would not be allowed to own part of a team.
Most mock drafts — including Sporting News’ — project Myles Garrett, the elite pass-rusher from Texas A&M, to be selected No. 1 overall, while Alabama’s dominant defensive lineman Cheap Infant NFL Jerseys Jonathan Allen is listed as a near-consensus No. 2 pick.
Two ACC quarterbacks in UNC’s Mitch Trubisky and Clemson’s Deshaun Watson have been mentioned Cheap Ireland Rugby Jerseys as the top quarterback options in the draft; while Trubisky is generally considered a top-five pick, Watson has also been projected to fall as low as No. 13 to the Cardinals.
Considering the Browns passed on Carson Wentz in last year’s draft, it’s possible they opt for a potential quarterback of the future in either Trubisky or Watson. However, Garrett’s incredible physical tools — and the fact he is widely considered the draft’s best overall player — may make him too valuable to pass up.
