Packers coach Mike McCarthy has high praise for the backup quarterback Green Bay acquired this offseason, DeShone Kizer.
McCarthy said Kizer compares to the elite prospects in this year’s draft, Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen and Josh Rosen.

He has starter ability in this league. Clearly, McCarthy said. In my opinion, if he was in that class this year, he would have been part of the first five quarterbacks, the first-round guys. He has exceptional arm talent.
That doesn’t make a lot of sense: Last year Kizer went in the latter part of the second round, No. 52 overall. Kizer did not have a good rookie year, which is why the Browns sent him to Green Bay. So if Kizer wasn’t a first-round pick a year ago, and didn’t have a good year, why would he be a first-round pick this year?

Manziel has seemed hesitant to play in the CFL in large part because that league requires players to sign two-year contracts. So if Manziel agreed to play for the Tiger-Cats, he’d be out of the NFL for 2018 and 2019. He wants to return to the NFL sooner than that.
CFL training camps open in two weeks, so Manziel may not have much more time to make up his mind. Assuming no NFL team is going to offer him a shot in training camp, Manziel’s next-best option would be to get himself into top shape to play for the Alliance of American Football, which starts play in early 2019. That league would allow Manziel to sign on for one season and be available for NFL training camps in 2019.
Manziel’s last NFL game was in 2015. He recently played minor league Crockett Gillmore Authentic Jersey ball with the Spring League.
One reason OKC is so tough? They out-hustle opponents. The Thunder rank first in the NBA in both deflections and loose balls recovered. Leading the way are their two best players: George’s 3.9 deflections per game led the NBA, as did Westbrook’s 2.2 loose balls recovered per game.
