There are some very rich people about to get a whole lot richer. Who else but NFL owners? Probably within the next week, those 32 multi-millionaires/billionaires will see their future earnings increase exponentially. The league is on the verge of extending its broadcast deals with its current partners, and with a new full-time rights holder in Amazon likely acquiring streaming rights.

Going further into NFL talk, Rutledge discussed what surprised her in the draft. This includes defensive tackle Christian Barmore getting picked up later in the second round.

Aaron Rodgers sparked up some conversation as he may be leaving the Green Bay Packers for another team. Here is what Rutledge had to say about that.

Rutledge believes that Rodgers felt a sense of disrespect and that he will leave the Packers sometime soon.

As the Browns drafted well this year, along with having Odell Beckham Jr., Rutledge talked highly of the team. Rutledge placed heavy emphasis on how Baker Mayfield must focus on players other than Odell to get things done.

Moving into college football, Rutledge had some positive things to say about Emory Jones and the Florida Gators offense this year. She believes that Coach Dan Mullen will be able to shape Jones into a phenomenal quarterback.

To wrap things up, Rutledge touched on the rise of the Texas A&M football team and how they have progressively gotten better this year. The team successfully challenged contender Alabama in the west. Coach Jimbo Fisher will most definitely face a lot of pressure this year as hopes are high for the Aggies.
