Russell Wilson Trade Rumors, Plus Cassius Marsh, the King of Pokemon and Magic the Gathering (?!) | The Lefkoe Show

As rumors swirl around Russell Wilson, Lefkoe takes stock about the incredible NBA-ification of the NFL in recent years, as stars (particularly quarterbacks) seem to be bouncing around from team to team like never before.

Jalen Mills and Jalen Reagor on Jalen Hurts, Carson Wentz, and More! | The Lefkoe Show

We hear from a lot of Eagles fans out there, and we can think of nothing more interesting than hearing two Eagles Jalens rave about a third Eagles Jalen.
