  • Multiple teams request Lamar Jackson to work out as WR

The Chiefs coach took the podium at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday and sarcastically dismissed the idea that the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor would be best served by ditching quarterback in favor of a different position at the next level.

Jackson is scheduled to report to the combine on Friday afternoon.

NFL Network insider Peter Schrager reported Friday morning that multiple teams had requested Jackson work out with the wide receivers. But hours later, Jackson said he was "shocked" by the news because "no teams have asked me to play wide receiver".

The FBI is looking into one of Ivanka Trump's global business deals, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN on Thursday. A spokesperson for Ivanka Trump denied to CNN that there is any obstacle to Ivanka Trump obtaining a security clearance .

So what will he tell a team that asks him to switch positions?

"I know coming in as a rookie, agents don't negotiate really", Jackson said.

Finally, in his press conference, Jackson said he will not be running the 40-yard dash. He will not play any sort of hybrid position. "I just have to show off my arm, because that's what they're doubting". He then added, "I thought I did a good job at quarterback" while at Louisville.

Sources told the Free Press his parents arrived on campus Friday morning to pick him up for spring break and were shot and killed. Larry Klaus said. "Police believe the situation started from a domestic situation", the school said in a statement.

Jackson said it was "absolutely" disrespectful that teams want him as a receiver, but said none of the teams mentioned that to him in any of his meetings. Jackson said. "But hey, they're going to say what they're going to say".

He was bubbly and fun and often amusing Friday, like when he said of whether the wide receiver talk was disrespectful: "Yeah, that's insane, I thought I did a good job at quarterback". "This is not the Dolphins with Ronnie Brown and Rickie Williams". "I thought I did", Jackson, a two-time ACC player of the year, said, laughing again. "I play the quarterback position". "Very mobile, I can throw on the run, [can make the throw to] any part of the field, any route". "I think he's going to get every chance to prove that before he ever looks at a position change". It would be great, I love the feeling down there; I love the sunshine. I love putting the ball in receiver's hands. "I think I have less batted balls at the line of scrimmage than all the other guys here".

"I love putting a chip on my shoulder".

Injured Neymar a serious doubt for Real Madrid clash
Neymar will certainly miss the second leg of their clash with Real Madrid in which they need to recover a 3-1 deficit. Paris Saint-Germain confirm that Neymar has suffered a severe ankle sprain and fractured metatarsal.

"I feel the film speaks for itself with [running], showing off my speed and showing I can make people miss", Jackson said". If Jackson, who measured 6-2¼ here and weighed in at 216, has any quarterbacking viability at all, that is likely to be a more promising path than trying to learn how to do something he has never done.
