Despite a certain level of uncertainty within the New England Patriots’ organization, Tom Brady’s agent, Don Yee, said he expects his client Tom Brady to return for the 2018 season.
Hopefully, this selection ends all of that. Jackson will get every opportunity to be the quarterback of the future for the Ravens. It should not take him long to overtake the fading, lumbering Joe Flacco. Baltimore is among the league’s most stable, patient franchises, so Jackson is unlikely to get sucked into any unnecessary drama.
The Ravens waited until the end of the first round to get a potential franchise quarterback, acquiring a player they like (Hayden Hurst), even if we don’t, along the way. Excellent, excellent work.
And it was great to see Jackson handle himself with so much grace as the draft wore on without his being selected, and to finally hear his name called. The racially charged maelstrom surrounding Jackson’s arrival in the NFL has been wearying to both read and write about. Imagine how it must have been for him.

Irsay, ever the optimist, believes Luck will instantly pull the Colts back into relevance.
Only Andrew can decide how far we are away, because he’s a magic man, Irsay said. When he’s healthy and he’s back, he makes up for a lot of deficiencies. When you got a guy like that, it’s hard to say how many deficiencies he can cover up, because he’s special.
The aim remains the start of training camp for Luck, who still isn’t throwing NFL footballs but has made considerable progress from where he was last fall.
If we had any doubts, we would’ve talked about the quarterback situation from a backup standpoint and those sorts of things, Irsay said. (The Colts haven’t signed any quarterbacks this offseason.) We really don’t have any doubts, but as you guys know, until he goes out and does it, it’s doing to be a matter of great interest and debate.
Irsay is right about that. Luck’s situation, unpredictable as it’s been, remains the most prominent issue surrounding this football team.
