Jaime Garcia is on the move.
The Braves announced Monday they have traded the 31-year-old pitcher, along with catcher Anthony Recker and cash considerations, to the Twins in exchange for pitching prospect Huascar Ynoa.
“It’s like the elephant in the room, and you don’t want to talk about it,” Beckham said. “But I’ve gotten to the point in my life where I’m like, ‘No, I’m going to … there’s no need to not talk about it.
“I believe that I will be hopefully not just the highest-paid receiver in the league, but the highest-paid, period.”
Those are some pretty lofty goals for Beckham, whose remaining year on his 2014 first-round pick’s rookie contract calls for him to be paid $1.8 million. The Giants recently picked up the fifth-year option on the contract at what is expected to be in the $8.5 million range.
Right now, Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown tops the list of highest-paid receiver after he scored a $68 million contract extension in February.
As for the highest-paid player in the league? That honor belongs to Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, who scored a five-year, $125 million deal during the offseason.
That’s a big ‘if’ because of the fact that most penalties are in favor of the offense at this point. Think about how and when pass rushers can hit a quarterback. It is very hard for a defender to get to the quarterback that many times simply because the rules prevent it, but honestly, why couldn’t Mack do it?
J.J. Watt showed that an interior lineman can get to the quarterback some 20 times in a year, so why couldn’t a pass rusher on the Detroit Lions Cheap Jerseys outside do it? The obvious reason is that he will be double-teamed, but still, if anyone Chinese Cheap Jerseys could do it, Mack may be the man.
