Which teams would provide the best new homes for Dwayne Haskins?

The two most recent collective bargaining agreements between the NFL and the NFLPA have been both a blessing and a curse for young quarterbacks.

Beyond the fact that rookie passers no longer immediately become the highest-paid players in the league if they are drafted early, there have been huge repercussions for young signal-callers as a result of the structured salary arrangement.

On the positive side of the ledger, since younger quarterbacks are now cost-effective, relatively speaking, teams are now anxious to get them on the field and maximize the relative value they offer at the position. The old school mentality of a rookie quarterback holding a clipboard and “learning by watching” is out the window. They play as early as possible, learning by doing instead, and teams use dollars that were previously allocated to the rookie quarterback’s salary elsewhere.

That has also spurred offensive innovation. If you have to play these young QBs, many of whom come from offenses that some consider not exactly “pro style,” you see new schematic elements work their way into the NFL. A “trickle-up” theory of offensive innovation, if you will.

But there is a downside.

Specifically, moving on from a mistake – real or perceived – is less costly for an organization.

Bed Bath & Beyond and buybuy Baby stores across 48 states will offer the service, but customers must reside in eligible ZIP codes to use it. There will be a flat-rate fee of $4.99 for orders of more than $39. As of May 30, Bed Bath & Beyond had a total of 1,478 stores, including 955 of its namesake shops and 127 buybuy Baby locations. 

Bed Bath & Beyond is partnering with Target-owned Shipt, which helps fulfill same-day orders for a number of other retailers including Costco and Kroger, and Instacart. Existing Shipt customers will still receive free, same-day delivery on all orders above $35 when they shop directly through the Shipt platform, the company said.
