Thanksgiving--November 27th, 2014


Hey, I'm thankful for my country. I'm thankful for Mrs Blog, who is the best thing that ever happened to me. I'm thankful for UMass Football, so that I have something to obsess about. Happy Thanksgiving to all UMass fans and readers.

Jean Sifrin
Jean Sifrin weighs declaring for the NFL Draft. Complex decision. Anytime a football player steps on the field, it could be their last. To me, the decision would be if Sifrin would be drafted and how high. The amount of guaranteed money rises almost exponentially for draft position. Free agency is not a good deal. Being drafted means the team is vested in the player. Rob Blanchflower was placed on IR and given time to recover, something that probably not happen to a free agent.

In addition, agents and teams are working for their own benefit. What they say is not necessarily what will happen. If Sifrin is certain he be drafted above the fifth round than he should declare at his age.

If not, then another college year and a potential bowl game, could boost him to a much bigger payout next season.

Matty Vautour says a winding road has brought Jean Sifrin close to a NFL career.
