NFL U Update
Oct. 14, 2019

Best NFL Roster News: Always known for his grueling off-season workouts, RB Frank Gore is showing no signs of slowing down five games into his 15th season, his first with the Buffalo Bills. Gore has passed all of his contemporaries — including UM teammates Clinton Portis and Willis McGahee — to enter the elite echelon of running backs. Gore became the fourth player to surpass 15,000 yards rushing with a 109-yards rushing in the Bills’ 16-10 loss to New England (the others are Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton and Barry Sanders, who only leads Gore by 188 yards). According to the website Pro Football Reference, Gore’s 6,242 yard rushing total after turning 30 leads all players. Gore has finished each of his 14 seasons leading his teams in yards rushing, including last season with the Miami Dolphins. Lucky to have escaped the currently winless Dolphins, he’s currently leading Buffalo with 333 yards rushing on 75 carries (4.4 yards/carry) with 2 rushing TDs. When Buffalo (4-1) returns from its bye week off this past weekend and hosts Miami on Oct. 20, Gore will be 79 yards away from becoming the ninth player to reach 19,000 all-purpose yards (he has 6 catches for 37 yards this year). Unlike Smith and Payton, Gore, who was originally drafted by San Francisco where he played for ten years, has played on some mediocre teams (including three years with the Indianapolis Colts). He’s reached the playoffs only three times, all during the 49ers’ three-year playoff run from 2011-13 (when Gore went to the Pro Bowl all three years). Although Buffalo is not ranked very high in the current NFL Power Rankings, the Bills gave New England their toughest game of the year so far. Maybe Frank Gore will get another chance at the playoffs this season, but the future Pro Hall-of-Famer may also be the last player to ever gain 15,000 yards lifetime due to the de-emphasis of the running game in the NFL (RB Curtis Martin finished with 14,101 rushing yards, joining Emmitt, Walter, Barry and Frank as the only backs in the NFL’s 14,000-yard-rusher club – although Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson has 13,544 lifetime rushing yards with 226 yards gained so far in 2019) …

Injury news: Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) is on the IR and isn’t expected back this year, and Jags OL KC McDermott (ankle) was placed on the IR after clearing waivers and won’t play in 2019 if he doesn’t reach an injury settlement with the team. Falcons P Matt Bosher (groin) was also placed on IR, but he might be activated after 8 weeks, assuming he’s ready. The Chargers are on their third-string kicker (Chase McLaughlin) since Michael Badgley (groin) has been injured all season and punter/kicker Ty Long is now exclusively punting after dealing with soreness in his plant foot. “The Money Badger” remains on the Chargers’ 53-man roster, although Badgley’s still considered a “couple weeks away” from making his return … While Browns DE Chad Thomas (neck) had a serious scare during a preseason game, he’s played in all six Cleveland games this season with 7 tackles and one sack. Carolina TE Greg Olsen (back) was slowed by injury problems for the first three weeks of the season, but has been fit and playing very well for the last three weeks. Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) didn’t make his season debut this past weekend against the Dallas Cowboys after serving a season-opening four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. Herndon reportedly injured his hamstring while running routes on his own last Friday …

NFL’s 100th Anniversary: The Associated Press has joined with the NFL Network in enlisting 80 experts to choose the 100 best in a group of topics including the 100 all-time greatest Plays, Games, Teams, Photos, and Game Changers. Last week, the NFL Network began broadcasting their NFL’s 100 Greatest Characters (#’s 31-100 are available online at ). The following Hurricane-related “characters” (and their placement in the poll) are included: ILB Ray Lewis (#38), WR Michael Irvin (#41), OLB Ted Hendricks (#48), HC Jimmy Johnson (#62), RB Clinton Portis (#70), and DT Warren Sapp (#76).

XFL U: Before a single player is chosen in the XFL Draft that begins tomorrow, each team will be assigned one quarterback. In its press release, the XFL didn’t reveal who the eight quarterbacks will be, how they will be chosen out of the XFL’s large pool of draft-eligible players, or how they’ll be assigned to each team. However, each XFL team’s manager-coach has submitted a list of their preferred quarterbacks. The initial XFL teams are as follows: Dallas Renegades, DC Defenders, Houston Roughnecks, Los Angeles Wildcats, New York Guardians, Seattle Dragons, St. Louis BattleHawks and Tampa Bay Vipers. The XFL will hold its first draft over two days, tomorrow and Wednesday. The XFL draft will consist of five phases: skill players (QB, RB, WR, TE), offensive line (OT, OG, C), defensive front seven (DL, LB), defensive backs (CB, S) and an open draft (K, P, LS plus any remaining player from any group). The XFL is going with a “snake draft” meaning that the draft order reverses every round, so the teams that pick early in one round will pick late in the next one. In addition to that, the teams picking in the middle of the order will get a chance to pick first (and also last) in rounds 3, 4 and 5. The league will hold a supplemental draft in late November, according to ESPN. Each of the league’s eight teams will assemble 71-man rosters prior to training camp with 52-player rosters during the regular season. The 1000-player list in the draft pool who all received official XFL Commissioners Invitations includes the following proCanes: Ladarius Gunter (CB), Justin Vogel (P), Stacy Coley (WR), Herb Waters (CB), Jake Heaps (QB), Brandon Washington (OL), Micanor Regis (DT), Marquez Williams (FB), Tyler Gauthier (OL), Jahair Jones (OL), Venzell Boulware (OL), Courtel Jenkins (DT), Arthur Brown (LB), Storm Edwards (RB), Gionni Paul (LB), Vincent Testaverde Jr. (QB), Paul Kelly (LS) and Malcolm Bunche (OL, who was just released from the Washington Redskins PS, see below). Conspicuous by their absence on the XFL draft list were QBs Brad Kaaya, Stephen Morris, Malik Rosier and Kevin Olsen, so it’s speculated that the XFL might be holding out more unlisted QB’s. The XFL begins play the weekend of Feb. 8 and 9. Games will be televised on ABC, FOX, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, ESPN and ESPN2. The Action Network reported that guaranteed pay on a standard contract will be $1,040 a week, with bonuses for being active on game days ($1,685) and for being on the winning team ($2,222). Maximum weekly salaries will be $4,947 over a total of 10 weeks of regular season play. The XFL Championship will take place Sunday, April 26th at 3 p.m. on ESPN.

Life on the Waiver Wire: OL Malcolm Bunch was released from the Washington Redskins Practice Squad over the weekend. He was signed by Washington for $8000 week (or $96,000 through the end of the current season, if he’d been retained) after being released for the second time by the New York Giants during their 2019 Training Camp. A grad transfer to UCLA, Bunche originally signed a three-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2015 worth $1,582,500 if he made their 53-man roster, which he failed to do. He received a $7,500 signing bonus as a rookie. Cut in the final round of preseason cuts by Philly on Sept. 4, 2015, he was signed to the Eagles’ practice squad on Sept. 6th. After not being called up (or poached by another NFL team) during the 2015 season, Bunche signed a futures contract with the Eagles for 2016. He was waived on Aug. 15, 2016 by Philadelphia and did not get re-signed during the 2016 season. During the early summer of 2017, Bunche became a member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the earlier-starting Canadian Football League (CFL), but was released in time to sign with Jacksonville Jaguars on Aug. 3, 2017. Cut in early September by Jacksonville, Bunche would play arena football with the Richmond Roughriders in the AAL during the late winter/early spring of 2018. Arena players reportedly earn about $750-850 per game, plus $75 for training camp and a per diem during away games. Signing with the Giants on May 14, 2018, Bunche was again cut late in Training Camp on Sept. 1st. Bunche next played in the AAF for the Arizona Hotshots where most players were scheduled to make $70,000 for the season – which was cut short by the AAF’s bankruptcy. As mentioned above, the Giants brought him back for Training Camp for the second year in a row, but he was waived on Aug. 31, 2019. In the NFL, it would be typical for any “first-year player” contract (after his rookie year, like Bunche) to not include a signing bonus or any guaranteed portion of his (presumably league-minimum) salary (of $495,000). However, Bunche (and all other 1st-year or rookie players) would have also received $1,075 per week in per diem during camp (2018 NFL figure, in addition to being provided with room and board – salaries aren’t paid until the season actually starts). Certainly, Malcolm has spent a lot of time in camps over the last five years, but more power to him! Compared to the “average” graduate’s starting salary of $50K coming out of college with a Bachelor’s, Bunche is probably approaching $200K (pretax) pocketed as a result of his gridiron toil over the last four+ years, so it would appear he hasn’t really sacrificed too much financially in his effort to keep his dream to be a pro football player alive. If he picked up some shifts as, say, a bouncer or personal trainer, in between his efforts to play pro ball, Bunche presumably has done better than many recent grads. A college starter at both tackle and guard listed at 6’6” or 6’7” and between 310 and 353 pounds, Bunche was declared academically ineligible for UCLA’s appearance in the Alamo Bowl against Kansas State played on Dec. 31, 2014. Therefore, it’s very likely that his time as a grad student at UCLA didn’t leave him close to earning a Masters Degree, but at least he doesn’t have any student loans to pay off and he’s got a Degree from the U.

Oct. 15, 2019 UPDATE: Day 1 of the XFL Draft had OL Venzell Boulware (St. Louis BattleHawks), WR Stacey Coley (Dallas Renegades), and OL Tyler Gauthier (Seattle Dragons) being picked. No proCane DL or LB were taken taken in Day 1. DBs, Specialists, and leftover players will be chosen on Day 2 (Weds.)
Oct. 16, 2019 UPDATE: Day 2 of the XFL Draft had CB Jhavonte Dean (Seattle Dragons), CB Herb Waters (Tampa Bay Vipers), CB Ladarius Gunter (DC Defenders), FB Marquez Williams (Houston Roughnecks), and QB Vincent Testaverde Jr. (Tampa Bay Vipers) being chosen. The XFL will conduct a secondary draft in November.

Nov. 14, 2019 CORRECTION: The original posting about the pay-scale for the new XFL quoted The Action Network as stating that maximum XFL player salaries would be $257,244 annually (assuming bonuses for constant play during an undefeated season). However, this was mistakenly based on a full 52-week payment schedule rather than salaries being paid only for the duration of the 10-week, winter/spring, XFL season and starting with a base salary of only $27,040.
