It does not get any more “over” than when you sell your stuff and leave town. That’s just what James Starks is up to in Green Bay.

Starks, a former Green Bay Packers running back, scheduled a moving sale for Aug. 25-26 at his home in Howard. Starks was with the Packers from 2010 to 2016. He was not brought back by the team for the upcoming season and remains an unsigned free agent.

The Mack hype train is in full effect.

Maybe that's why Mack's goal of racking up a 30-sack season, as leaked by Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, does not sound so outlandish ... even if the NFL record is 22.5 by Michael Strahan in 2001.

I’m not a fan of this, because it basically drives up the pressure for MAC to perform at a superhuman level.

What he and the Raiders need to do is win a ton of games and get deep into the playoffs. If Mack gets double and triple teamed the entire season and the stats suffer, but wins follow, that’s enough.

Elsewhere in California CBS is favoring Branden Oliver as the second string running back for the Chargers.

Steven Means is seen as a good, stable, situational pass rusher according to bleeding green nation.

Of the most recent crop of UB graduates Mason Schreck still looks like a practice squad candidate with the Bengals and Jordan Johnson told WGRZ he thinks he has a real shot with the Bills
