Vikings are now odds-on favorites to sign Kirk Cousins
Being in the same division with the Patriots, the Jets don’t occupy the top spot too often.
But that’s where oddsmakers had the Jets in the early pursuit of Kirk Cousins with the team set to lavish him with a significant deal. However, as the offseason has progressed, the Vikings have surged to become the favorites in the Cousins sweepstakes.
In Bovada’s Feb. 19 odds, the Jets were a 2/3 favorite followed by the Broncos, Cardinals and Bills. But in the two weeks that have passed since, the Vikings have bolted from off the board to a clear 1/3 favorite, with the Broncos and Jets running second and third.
Only months after the Saints came back to New Orleans, Benson was greeted like a conquering hero at a team-sponsored fan event when the club drafted USC star Reggie Bush.
The Saints became a source of inspiration during the tough early days of post-Katrina rebuilding. In storybook style, they improved from 3-13 in 2005 to 10-6 under new coach Sean Payton, then advanced to the franchise’s first NFC championship game.
Smoker, who was hiking with his grandson Eli, fell some 20 feet onto a rock and sustained multiple serious injuries.
It felt like he was in the air for 10 seconds. I had never seen anything quite like that in my life as far as the trauma and the sound. We were in shock, McCaffrey said, per the team’s website.
The group, which included his brothers Dylan and Max and family friends Michael Mann and Brooke Pettet, sprung into action.
McCaffrey says he dialed 9-1-1, while Mann and another onlooker tended to Smoker. The other hiker kept Smoker’s head still while Mann did chest compressions. Eli Smoker, 13, tried to reach his father, who was in San Diego for his 15th wedding anniversary.
Everybody stepped up, McCaffrey said. I called 9-1-1, and it felt like an eternity. It felt like we were up there waiting for four hours. But I looked back at my call log and it took 11 minutes before the paramedics came. Amazing what those guys did.
