What the hell is wrong with Dawson Knox? Only draftee not signed..(6/14 - Now Signed-Go Dawson!!!)

Recommended Posts

I find it interesting that any player, outside of an active CONTRACT, would be on the field practicing when there is at least some risk of injury.

Dawson Knox has the opportunity of a lifetime in front of him.

 

I wouldn’t at all be surprised if he is a day one starter.

 

 

Right off the bus, though?

Just look at his competition with Kroft out.

I was wondering the same about the Rams, but I've never paid attention in previous years, so maybe this is normal for them.  No clue.  It does seem odd, though.

Jeff Fisher started requiring their drafts picks to get some training about handling the money they are about to get before they actually receive it. I'm assuming they are still requiring the draftees get that training. Should be something every team does.

 

Once all the training happens they will sign.

While Knox is at OTAs and his final contract is being negotiated he is playing under a guaranteed for injury contract.

This was confirmed earlier.

Best training to ever come out of a Jeff Fischer football team...

He did have some great advice to help his struggling kicker back in the day with this brilliant piece of advice.

 

"He's got to kick it between the uprights."

 

Stuff like that is ground breaking.

He should have told Steve McNair not to mess around with crazy chicks. 

 

Too soon?

No one said he was an "All Bright Knox".....  (spelling incorrect intentionally for the anal retentives out there...)

26 of 32 3rd rounders are not signed......man take a deep breath, it will be ok.  The odds of a 3rd rounding missing training camp due to a contract dispute? Like right next to 0

I am surprised at the number of unsigned draft picks, knowing that a significant injury can occur, even if not working with the team.

 

i am very surprised at 7th rounders not signing, knowing that they may not ever end up playing in the NFL.

They sign a contract saying they would still get the same contract even if they suffer an injury before OTAs

Honestly at this point I just want them to figure it out so I can stop hearing about it.

I am only speculating but I would assume that the rookie contract is pretty standard but that the guaranteed money is what would be in jeopardy.

Isnt this a compensatory pick?  Maybe that's a sticky point.  Its outside the top 32 picks of round 2.  Seems like they are wait til pick 32 and so on sign vs 1st pick of rd 4.

Meanwhile, in news that actually matters... he's practicing and looks awesome:

http://expo.newyorkupstate.com/sports/g66l-2019/05/2157e6920ded4/buffalo-bills-week-2-otas-2019-josh-allen-lights-it-up-7-observations.html

 

"2. Bills may have something special in Dawson Knox

Overreaction alert, I know. But Knox was thrust into significant first-team reps after Tyler Kroft broke his foot last week and he flashed some major skills in the practice setting. He caught a touchdown and made some nice grabs throughout team drills. Allen was looking to get him the ball and two of his grabs were some of Allen's highlight-throws. One was a perfectly-placed over-the-shoulder grab on a 20-yard out route and the other was a simple play-action, quick hitter over the middle. If Knox can find a way to get on the field his speed can be a real addition to this Bills offense."

No, but  

 

He's hoping to be "Fort Knox"

Okay, I like this kid (really impressive).....sorry for questioning his intellect.    He definitely fits the culture.  Walk-On on at Ole Miss.  Hard work got him on the field.  Learned a lot from playing behind Evan Engram. 

 

Waiting on other deals to get done to sign. 

 

Best part of the interview:

- Grew up a Titans fan

- Said he now believes that homerun throwback was a forward pass 🙂
