The Vikings announced the signing of linebacker Reshard Cliett on Thursday.
Cliett, a sixth-round pick of the Texans in 2015, has never appeared in a regular-season game. He also has spent time with the Chiefs, Titans, Cardinals, Jets and Broncos.
Asdrubal Cabrera (B), 30 percent, New York Mets at Miami Marlins (RHP Jose Urena): Cabrera continues to be a great spot starter, eligible all over the infield and a switch hitter to boot. Urena is an example of a young hurler able to throw 95 mph, but lacking in both the command and control departments, along with a dearth of secondary offerings. The Mets are sneakily solid with a righty on the hill, putting Cabrera in a good spot out of the two-hole.
Maikel Franco (R), 26 percent, Philadelphia Phillies vs. Cincinnati Reds (LHP Cody Reed): The Phillies infield rotation is still a work in progress, though Franco is doing his best to command full time play with four extra base hits, including a pair of homers. With a lefty on the hill, he’ll be in there looking to build on his early success.
However, one of Beckham’s peers believes that such a decision would be tremendously foolish.
“That’s stupid. That’s stupid, man,” Cincinnati Begnals wide receiver A.J. Green said, via NFL.com. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime, or once-in-a-generation talent, man, and you’ve got to be ready. I think he’ll get paid. They not that crazy.”
During last week’s league meetings in Orlando, the Giants ultimately said that Beckham was not being shopped around while also saying that no player is untouchable. However, the team has stated a strong desire for Beckham to be with the team for the long-term, though a contract extension will be necessary for that to become reality.
While Beckham has shown to be a remarkably talented weapon for the Giants, finding common ground on a contract may prove problematic.
