Rival Report 7/21: Medical marijuana advocate Eugene Monroe retires from NFL

It is hard to not admire a person who is willing to put everything on the line to advocate for something that they believe whole heartedly will help people. That is what offensive tackle Eugene Monroe did when he began being an outspoken advocate for medical marijuana. Now we know that Monroe was so willing to risk his job because he was contemplating leaving it anyway. Earlier this summer Monroe had donated a $10k grant to research the possible positive effects that medical marijuana could have in relation to brain injuries. Considering the focus on concussions in the NFL and the possible...

Weekly Observations

Eugene Monroe retirement, more advancement on NFL/Concussion relations, and more 1) Eugene Monroe retires The player that the Jaguars selected with the 8th overall pick in 2009, and the player that most can honestly say is one of the most respected and commendable players to walk through that locker room in recent history, has retired. Monroe lays out his reasoning here, in a well thought out piece on The Players Tribune. Walking away from the game at only 29 because of fear not only for yourself but for your peers is something that can be admired. Going against the grain and the...

What was the riskiest move by the Baltimore Ravens this offseason?

Bleacherreport recently posted "Every NFL Team’s Riskiest Move So Far This Offseason", and it got me thinking what risky moves the Ravens made. There are a few in fact. Cutting Eugene Monroe This gets very mixed reviews, but I do think that cutting Eugene is risky. When healthy (I know I know. . .) Eugene was a good left tackle. Coming into this season having an established veteran left tackle to not only play, but also mentor the rookie would have been helpful. If Stanley struggles, Eugene is still there to work with. Also, the Ravens have a dead cap of $2.2 million in 2016, and $4.4...
