BALTIMORE Before last year’s trade deadline, the Yankees made pushes for several starting pitchers before landing Sonny Gray from the Athletics.
I didn’t know what my expectations were,Manziel said of his transition in Canada. I didn’t know what I was getting into here. I talked to some people, but that only goes so far until you’re really living it. To each his own on what you like and dislike. But for me, I love our practice schedule. I love my coaches. I love my teammates, man. It’s been fun and easy to transition into a new country and a new place with guys in the locker room like we have.
Now, the game itself, today was good to get out there, feel the speed, see the zone coverages, see how it plays out. I feel like this is a good fit for me.

Peterson, as we all know, is notable for being in phenomenal shape throughout his career and returning from a torn ACL to rush for 2,097 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012. He spent quite some time as the reigning top running back in the NFL and will be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday. He’s not there anymore at age 33, but that doesn’t diminish his endorsement of Brees, even if they only spent a quarter of the 2017 regular season together.
