>>Not A Bust Yet, But Packers Not Getting Much From 2020 Draft
(Green Bay, WI) — It’s not anywhere close to the time we should call the 2020 NFL Draft a bust for the Packers, but they’re not getting much so far. First-round pick Jordan Love hasn’t been activated for any of the first four games and second-round pick A-J Dillon has played only five percent of the offensive snaps. Third-rounder Josiah Deguara and sixth-rounder Jake Hanson have just been placed on injured reserve, joining fourth-round pick Kamal Martin, who hasn’t played. It is possible Martin will be activated for Sunday’s return to action because there is an open spot on the 53-man roster. Undrafted rookie free agent Krys Barnes has started three of the four games with an impressive showing.
>>Bucks May Have To Part With Middleton To Get The Roster They Want
(Milwaukee, WI) — An early departure from the NBA postseason has the Milwaukee Bucks looking at the possibility of several roster changes. To get Giannis Antetokounmpo the help he needs will make clearing some salary a necessity. Even though Khris Middleton averaged almost 21 points-a-game while connecting on a high percentage of his shots, it’s possible he might be packaged in a trade. The Bucks are already expected to say goodbye to Eric Bledsoe, but clearing his 17-million-dollar salary doesn’t give the team enough financial flexibility. The trick might be finding a trade partner willing to take on Middleton’s 33-million-dollar paycheck for next year.
>>Brewers Likely On Hold Until World Series Ends
(Milwaukee, WI) — Several dates are likely circled on calendars in the Milwaukee Brewers front office. Not much gets done openly until the 2020 World Series is over, then teams can make trades and eligible players become free agents. For five days those free agents can only negotiate with their own team. Five days later, the free agents can talk with anybody and clubs can make qualifying offers to their free agents. Players have 10 days to decide whether to accept. November 20th is the deadline for the Brewers and other teams to add players to the 40-man roster in order to protect them from the Rule 5 Draft. The date for teams to tender a 2021 contract to their unsigned players is December 2nd and the Winter Meetings will be held in Dallas the 7th through the 10th. Arbitration figures are exchanged between teams and players January 15th, with hearings beginning February 1st. Two weeks after that – Brewers pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training February 15th.
>>Badgers Wide Receivers Say New Coach Brings “Energy,” Swagger”
(Madison, WI) — Wisconsin Badgers wide receivers Danny Davis the Third and Kendric Pryor say the team’s new wide receiver coach brings “energy” and “swagger” to practice every day. The two seniors joined new coach Alvis Whitted in a Zoom session with the media Tuesday. The charismatic Whitted has worked with players like Packers standout Davante Adams. The discussion about which players will get touches in the season that starts in less than two weeks focused on Davis and Pryor, plus seniors Jack Dunn and Adam Krumholz. Also mentioned was true freshman Chimere Dike of Waukesha. Three more names to keep in mind when it comes to catching passes – A-J Abbott, Stephan Bracey and Taj Mustapha.
>>Wisconsin Schools Studying 21-Page Guidelines For Winter Sports
(Stevens Point, WI) — Officials at the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association say they expect things to change this winter, but they’ve provided the state’s athletic programs with a 21-page set of guidelines. It focuses on the changes those schools will need to make to play sports during the COVID-19 pandemic. A Sports Medical Advisory Committee made up of eight doctors, an athletic trainer, and a nutritionist worked together on the guidelines. They grow in importance as Wisconsin emerges as one of the nation’s largest coronavirus hot spots. One WIAA official says the athletes aren’t causing the hot spots. He says they are being diligent in following the guidelines because they want to play.
