    Irving doesn’t deserve any credit Nick Bosa Jersey , but maybe Ricky Williams does.The NFL has eased its marijuana policy since Williams played, but the league still bans it even if a player is using it under the supervision of a doctor and even in states where it is legal. But the NFL and NFLPA announced in May that they have formed a committee that will study marijuana as a pain-management tool.The sides surely will include the issue in CBA talks.Williams, 42, long has advocated the use of marijuana and has gone in the marijuana business with a line of cannabis-based products called “Real Wellness by Ricky Williams.” He was asked if the NFL finally is catching up.“Most of the time I’m up here, I’m asked a question about marijuana L.J. Collier Jersey ,” Williams said Saturday at SportsCon 2019 in Dallas. “Any big corporation kind of has to be behind the times. It’s public opinion, and I think public opinion has started to shift that the NFL is obviously talking about it in the public. I just think our whole country has come a long way in the past 15 years. The fact that before I was shunned and considered a pariah, and now ESPN invites me to talk about cannabis on television. We’re moving forward, and I think the NFL is eventually going to catch up.”Williams missed an entire season, retiring in the face of a $650 http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-marquise-blair-jersey ,000 fine and four-game suspension for his marijuana use. He returned but missed another full season due to a year-long suspension for another violation of the substance abuse policy.Cowboys defensive Randy Gregory is serving an indefinite suspension now after missing 30 games for violating the substance abuse policy, but his latest suspension might not cost him any games. The NFL suspended him in February. He will apply for reinstatement Monday.While Williams faced public ridicule at times for his unorthodox training methods and marijuana use, no one is laughing now. Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley is adamant that he’s going to be a quarterback in the NFL, and he does not want to change positions. Perhaps hearing a Super Bowl-winning coach compare him to a Super Bowl MVP could make him reconsider.Saints coach Sean Payton told Peter King for that McSorley reminds him of Julian Edelman, a three-year starting quarterback at Kent State who became a seventh-round pick of the Patriots in 2009 and is now the reigning Super Bowl MVP.“When I looked at him D.K. Metcalf Jersey , my first thought was, ‘I wonder if he can be Edelman?’ I wondered if he could be a versatile kind of guy,” Payton said.Dozens of college quarterbacks have moved to other positions in the NFL. Some, like Edelman, have had long and successful careers. Others http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-cody-barton-jersey , like former first-round draft pick Matt Jones, became huge disappointments. But it certainly can be done, and it won’t be surprising if McSorley does it, even if right now he wants teams to think of him as a quarterback.
