GMFB revisits wild ending to Super Bowl XLIX NFL Highlights • Jun 7, 2018, 12:56 AM NFL Network’s Kay Adams recounts the wild ending to Super Bowl XLIX.

Malcolm Jenkins uses signs, not words, in a powerful response to President Donald Trump

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins has been an outspoken advocate for social justice, but he made one of his most powerful statements Wednesday without saying anything at all.

Pro Football Reference deemed only a handful of players to be more valuable to the Cleveland Browns than running back Duke Johnson was in 2017. That might not mean a whole lot considering that Cleveland didn’t win a game, but the fact is Johnson went over 1,000 yards from scrimmage despite being on the field just 53 percent of the time. 

The 24-year-old is one of the best pass-catching backs in the league—only Le’Veon Bell has more catches and receiving yards the last two years—but 66 running backs and 35 Browns players are paid more than him. 

That’ll likely change when his rookie contract expires next offseason. 

Key players Trevor Williams, Desmond King, Austin Ekeler and Kyle Emanuel gave the Los Angeles Chargers tremendous bang for less than a million bucks each in 2017, but the much more handsomely paid Joey Bosa is still the team’s most underpaid member. 

A mere 28 games into his career, the 2016 Defensive Rookie of the Year has 23 sacks, four forced fumbles, 111 tackles and a Pro Bowl nod. Still only 22 years old, he looks as though he’s on the verge of becoming one of the most dominant defensive players in the game. 

And while he’s not hurting for cash with an average annual salary of $6.5 million, 18 4-3 defensive ends make more than that. 

Unless the Los Angeles Rams sign defensive defensive lineman Aaron Donald to a blockbuster extension this summer, the league’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year will make less money than 68 other defensive players in 2018.
