On this week’s episode of the Edge of Sports podcast, we talk to professor Louis Moore, author of We Will Win The Day, about Lamar Jackson’s new contract, the NFL Draft, and what both say about the state of the Black QB in the NFL.

I have some Choice Words about France on the precipice of both the Olympics and social chaos. We’ve got a Just Stand Up award for Miami Heat legend, Dwyane Wade, for his courage in the face of the anti-trans bigotry his family has been facing, which caused them to leave the state of Florida. We also have Just Sit Down awards for the cowardly silence from some of the biggest stars in the Florida sports community.
