J.R. Sweezy visiting the Seahawks

Maybe you can go home again.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, former Buccaneers guard J.R. Sweezy is visiting the Seahawks, and taking a physical.

Of course, before Sweezy was a former Buc, he was a former Seahawk, as Seattle drafted him in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft. At that time, he was a former defensive tackle, before they converted him and he made 49 starts for them over four seasons.

After starting 1-10 in 2017, Jimmy Garoppolo led the 49ers to five consecutive wins to avoid a fourth straight season of the team going under its win total. Expectations have now been elevated for San Francisco, which needs to win nine games in order to hit its over in 2018. Keep in mind, this is a franchise that has been favored five times in 48 games since Jim Harbaugh left for Michigan.

At 40-1 to win it all in 2018, the Seahawks have the same Super Bowl odds as the Giants and Denver Broncos. Seattle also has the third-best odds in its own division. This is a far cry from recent preseason expectations for the Seahawks, who entered every season since 2014 as the odds-on favorite to win the NFC West.

Billy’s first-round talent and we’ve had more than one team tell us that, Kansas coach Bill Self told KUSports.com. But they haven’t seen him. [That] hurt him. There’s no question about that, as far as the draft goes. But what happens in 2018 isn’t going to define whether you’re a pro in 2026 and the objective is to have a career not a paycheck.

He was investigated by the NCAA after he was in an on-campus car accident. There were questions about the car he was driving.

Preston then signed overseas, joining BC Igokea of the Adriatic League. He played three games before suffering an injury that forced him to leave the Bosnian club.

It’s no secret 76ers guard Markelle Fultz struggled shooting last season, but according to his trainer Drew Hanlen, his shot is going to be perfect by the end of summer.

In an interview on the Talking Schmidt Podcast, Hanlen said Fultz had a case of the yips during his rookie season, but they have spent the offseason fixing his jumper.

With Markelle, obviously he has one of the most documented cases of kind of the yips of basketball in recent years, where he completely forgot how to shoot and had multiple hitches in his shot, Hanlen said, per PhillyVoice.com. So for me it was, hey listen, how can I get this kid that was No. 1 in last year’s draft back rolling and get him to the point where he was before, if not better?
