The penultimate day of the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine is set for Sunday. Defensive backs will go through the bench press, NFL Players Association meetings, psychological testing and interviews while defensive linemen and linebackers will go through their on-field workouts.
Sunday’s on-field action will be carried by the NFL Network beginning at 9 a.m. ET and running into the afternoon. Online streaming of the on-field action will be available via NFL.com, and also via NFL Mobile for Verizon customers who want to go that route.
MARTIN: I’ve seen fights, been a part of fights in practice, fights in the locker room after the game. … My rookie year, I saw Kendall Gill choke out Jim McIlvaine in practice. Choked him out in practice one day. Jim McIlvaine was wild. He elbowed him one day in practice, elbowed him a couple times, and Kendall got fed up. Grabbed him, put him to the ground, man, and choked him, like, “I’ll kill you!”
MARTIN: Yeah, it was a one-hitter-quitter. … They thought I broke his orbital bone. That was my first year in Denver. … He was starting at the time, and when I signed with Denver, we were playing open gym — this was before the season started. … So the days I would play, he wouldn’t play. He was staying away from me. And the days I wouldn’t come to the gym or I wouldn’t play, he would play. So you know me and my thought process, like, “You’re avoiding me.”
So I come to the gym late one day, and he’s playing. All right, let me guard him. I guard him, we’re going back and forth. We ain’t really playing basketball, it’s kind of getting a little chippy. Physical, I don’t mind. But I stopped play a few times, “Listen, Nene, you’re not playing basketball. Chill.” … I stopped play, man, “Listen, you do it again, I’m going to punch you. Straight up. No ifs, ands, I’m going to punch you if you do it again.”
