The last team to pick No. 1 overall in back-to-back drafts was who else but the Browns. They selected Tim Couch and Courtney Brown with the top picks in the 1999 and 2000 drafts, respectively.

I like it, though. I think whenever you get the younger guys, it’s a new Womens Drew Storen Jersey fresh perspective on how the league is supposed to be viewed. And that’s what you’re supposed to do at the combine 锟斤拷 go in an believe in yourself. I love kicking it with the rookies, I love being around the rookies. I feel like they keep me young and keep me fresh in what I do. Watching the combine and their interviews is fun.

What do you make of the talk about Lamar Jackson? About people saying, ‘Well he’s not a quarterback?’

VM: That’s just how it is. At the combine they dissect everything, and everyone has their opinions on everything. I showed up at the combine, and before I ran a 40, I was 247 pounds.

Similar to the non-exclusive tag, except the player gets paid an average of the top 10 salaries at his position, rather than top five. Transition-tagged players are free to negotiate with other teams, but unlike non-exclusive players, the original team gets no compensation if it fails to match an offer.

Once a player gets tagged, that’s when the real drama begins. Both sides have until July 16 to negotiate a long-term contract. This ramps up the sense of urgency. Teams don’t want to use the tag because it ties up a huge chunk of their salary cap for just one year. The players don’t like it because they don’t have any financial security beyond that one year, and have almost no leverage outside of threatening to hold out. If they fail to agree to a long-term deal before the deadline, the player is set for his one-year contract.
