That’s not a good view for Pringle, who just signed his first major contract in the NFL. Pringle spent the last three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes.

ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreet is synonymous with the company. A longtime college football analyst relayed the unfortunate news via his Twitter account on Monday.

The 52-year-old has announced he has had a blood clot, which means he won’t be able to attend the NFL draft. Herbstreit has been a mainstay of ESPN’s coverage project over the years. Herbstreet has pledged to return to the draft next year.

Hopefully Herbstreit can beat this medical problem sooner rather than later. The longtime analyst signed a deal in this off-season to join Michaels as the new team to broadcast Thursday Football for Amazon. Big things await Herbstreit in the NFL.

Tom Brady has made NFL history on more occasions than we can remember at this point. One of his historic moments came against the Carolina Panthers last season when he threw a career record 624.

Mike Evans gave the ball to a cheerleader in the stands, Janice Green, who owned a piece of history. However, after Brady announced his return from retirement, the ball lost much of its value.

Greene took the ball to Heritage Auctions in Dallas on Saturday for auction. As much as you’ll miss getting a soccer ball, you’ll likely make a pretty penny for it in the auction market.
