NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 1 Schedule and More
July 18, 2015
We’re heading into another off-season weekend in the NFL, and there’s quite a bit to talk about as we creep closer to the training camp and preseason periods. Let’s check out some of the notable headlines out there.
Brandon Marshall made some headlines yesterday. This week during a question-and-answer segment on Twitter, he said of the Jets, “This will be my last team.”
The 31-year-old Marshall said he plans to retire after his time with the Jets, but we’ll see how long that takes. He’s inked on a three-year deal worth $26 million and goes into 2015 as Gang Green’s top target.
Whether or not the embattled Jets quarterbacks will be able to get Marshall the ball, however, remains to be seen.

Speaking of thirty-something NFL wide receivers, Reggie Wayne made some comments about his future yesterday.
Wayne said he wants to come back to the league for one more season before calling it quits; he’s reportedly doing well after February triceps surgery.
As of right now, it doesn’t look like Wayne will be playing for the Colts, where he’s spent his entire 14-year tenure. He says he’s talked to some other teams, however.
Wayne has 1,070 career receptions, which is seventh on the all-time list. He’s 36 years old.
In a move that would have been surprising a couple of years ago, the Jaguars released WR Ace Sanders yesterday.
Sanders was a fourth-round pick in 2013, and actually showed some potential in his initial season in the NFL. In that campaign, he managed 51 grabs for 484 yards and a score, logging 87 targets.
Then, 2014 happened. Sanders logged only 12 appearances with six catches for 55 yards.
It’s likely he’ll catch on somewhere else and get a chance to shine. He’s definitely got some promise.
NFL Weekly Schedule: Now that the schedules have been released, we can start looking forward to the official start of the 2015 NFL season. Let’s take a look at the upcoming round of games.
