DeMarcus Ware, Zane Beadles studying finance for better post-career options (Shutdown Corner) ( today ) Courtesy of
Two of the NFL’s top free agents signed contracts this offseason that would allow them, if they so chose, to put their money in a simple savings account and in theory be set for their lives. And yet DeMarcus Ware and Zane Beadles, who signed deals that will combine to earn them more than $32 million guaranteed with their new teams, want more. Not more money, necessarily. But more knowledge of how best to put it to use. We all know that the NFL deals in funny money. To wit: A five-year, $50 million deal isn’t worth 50 mil proper — how much of that is guaranteed? And also, there’s the painful truth that the majority of the players in the league will have blown most of whatever they have earned, or perhaps all of it. Ware and Beadles were two of 28 current and former NFL players who attended last week’s NFL Business Management & Entrepreneurial Program at the University of Notre Dame. The program was designed to help players of all strata — from the Wares of the world down to league-minimum players, and even those no longer earning a league paycheck — to help better manage their funds and perhaps even invest them properly. In fact, most of the players who attended were not on Ware’s or even Beadles’ level of fame or talent. They either were fringe players, or currently out of the league. Yahoo! Thu, Apr 17
 
Falcons bringing Anthony Barr in for a visit (ProFootball Talk on NBC Sportsa) ( today ) Courtesy of
Depending on who drafts him, Anthony Barr figures to play multiple roles. So it makes sense that a defense that won’t commit to any one style is looking closely at the UCLA linebacker. According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Barr will visit the Falcons next Tuesday. Barr’s most natural fit is as… Yahoo! Thu, Apr 17
 
Report: Ravens, Falcons, Patriots, Colts, Browns and Jets are heavily interested in Michael Sam (Shutdown Corner) ( today ) Courtesy of
Michael Sam is not expected to be a first-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft. He may not be selected in the middle rounds. In fact, there is a chance Sam is not drafted at all. However, there are plenty of NFL teams very interested in him. The Baltimore Ravens, Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Browns and New York Jets are the teams most interested in Sam, according to The Baltimore Sun. Sam met with several teams, including Baltimore, at the NFL scouting combine. Sam is poised to become the first openly gay NFL player. However, Sam has struggled during the NFL evaluation process. Sam turned in an unimpressive performance at the scouting combine. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.91 seconds (tied for 18th); bench pressed 225 pounds 17 times (tied for 47th/second to last); had a vertical jump of 25.5 inches (tied for 39th) and his broad jump was 114 inches (tied for 14th). During Missouri’s pro day, Sam ran the 40-yard dash in 4.72 seconds, plus finished with 19 reps of 225 pounds. Unfortunately, for Sam, he sustained a hamstring injury during the workout, and struggled to finish the drills. One thing working on Sam’s behalf is most NFL teams are more concerned with what they see on film than evaluating predraft workouts. Sam was named the SEC’s co-defensive player of the year after leading the conference in sacks (10.5) and tackles for loss (18.0) last season. Some scouts believe Sam is not athletic enough to play outside linebacker and not big enough to be a defensive end in a 3-4, which means he will have to make an NFL team as a special teams contributor. And there are six NFL teams seemingly poised to give Sam a chance. - - - - - - - Anwar S Richardson is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Jadeveon Clowney to visit Falcons next week (ProFootball Talk on NBC Sportsa) ( today ) Courtesy of
Back in February, Jadeveon Clowney said that he would love it if the Falcons traded up from the sixth pick to select him in May’s draft. He’ll have the chance to make the case in person next week. Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports that Clowney will visit with the Falcons as Atlanta tries to find defensive… Yahoo! Thu, Apr 17
