    Just saw he made the AP all Pro Team. Great work by him, enjoy watching him play on Sundays. One of the best all-time Hawks

    The funny thing is that there aren't many things that we all agree on. The NFL success of Desmond King is one, if not the only thing that all Hawk fans knew was going to happen.

    He plays for the Chargers, so . . . no. There's always free agency.

    Desmond King took a risk coming back for his senior year. I am so glad things have worked out for him. You can't help but cheer for the guy. I hope he finally gets his big payday when free agency kicks in.

    If the Chargers were smart, they would give him a deal now. They won't because they aren't.

    It will be interesting to see how many of those defensive back's drafted ahead of him are still in the league when he signs his second deal.

    They would have to cut some high salaried veterans to do it. Also, there's this Rivers fellow on that team that commands a sizable percentage of the salary cap. Finally, there's the impending CBA to negotiate after the 2020 season.
    I don't know if the baseball type deal you mention is even allowed under the current CBA. When certain players do hold out it's usually after their third year or after their fourth year when they get franchise tagged. A smart player may want to see how the dust settles after the new CBA is negotiated in 2021.

    Not bad for a slow guy.

    Favorite Desmond King game was the Michigan upset in 2016. They were ranked #3. King brought a attitude to that game Iowa fans aren't used to seeing. King was in guys faces.

    Doubt KF allows that if not him being a returning all american senior thorpe award winner.

    I dunno about that. Kelce had a monster year too... More TDs a ton of yards and catches as well. Needless to say Kittle did awesome and isn't under the radar anymore. Dude is a marked man now. Good for him

    How about some of Matt Roth's behavior at the end? He was starting to become Bosworth-lite. I remember at a Capitol One fan rally how he mentioned he had two things to say to LSU. He raised both middle fingers in the air.
