FRISCO – Dallas Cowboys star Dak Prescott now has company in Mavs star Luka Doncic. What brings them together? The reprehensibly ignorant comments made by Fox Sports host Skip Bayle s, in recent regarding the quarterback’s bout with depre sion and this week with the conman contrarian’s „hot take“ that My is the appropriate place for my personal reaction (based on my 30 years of personally dealing with Bayle s). .When does conceding to vulnerability somehow devolve into being „unmanly“? When does revealed dealing with depre sion, while also discu sing for the first time his brother’s suicide, become a „weakne s“? When does Dewan Hernandez Jersey Doncic conceding that being behind in an NBA Playoffs series might mean growth is required, become a „weakne s“?When important i sues like this become segment fodder for The HumanHemorrhoid, who has made a career out of being a barnacle who attaches himself to succe sful athletes and then attempts to tear them down.(READ MORE: .)What Dak said in 2020: All throughout this quarantine and this offseason, I started experiencing emotions Ive never felt before, Prescott said. Anxiety for the main one. And then, honestly, a couple of days before my brother pa sed, I would say I started experiencing depre sion.“Bayle s‘ indefensible position, such as it is, is that the Anthony Lawrence II Jersey quarterback of the Cowboys should be „tougher“ than that.I dont have sympathy with him going public that I got depre sed‘,“ Bayle s said. Look, hes the quarterback of Americas Team. You know and I know, this sport that you play, it is dog-eat-dog. It is no compa sion. No quarter given on the football field. If you reveal publicly any little weakne s, it can affect your teams ability to believe in you in the toughest spots and it definitely could encourage others on the other side to come after you.Fox eventually i sued a statement saying it „doesn’t agree“ with Bayle s.No kidding?Scroll to ContinuePrescott was asked about the Bayle s comments at the time and said he’d be a „fake leader“ if he failed to share his truths.“I think being a leader is about being genuine and being real,“ Prescott said. „If I wouldn’t have talked about those things to the people I did, I wouldn’t realize that I, my friends and a lot more people go through them, and they are as common as they are.“I’ve got to make sure my mind’s in the right place … to lead people to where they want to me. I think it’s important to be vulnerable, to be genuine, to be transparent. I think that goes a long way when you’re a leader and when your voice is Ray Lewis Jersey being heard by so many, and you can inspire.“Prescott then said something that deserves a far larger platform than the one Bayle s is provided.“I got the help I needed, and I was very open about it,“ Prescott said. „Emotions can overcome you if you dont do something about it. Mental health is a huge i sue and it’s a real thing in our world right now …I think it’s huge to talk, I think it’s huge to get help and it saves lives.“And this is – is committing an ethical crime, something far worse than pretending he was a basketball star (he wasn’t) or pretending Zach Johnson Jersey he’s a „Cowboys fan“ (he isn’t) or And what happens when we don’t? When we feign „manline s“ by not admitting we need to grow, by not admitting we feel pain?Doncic and Dak are telling truths that not only help their teams, but also help society – and yes, make better the lives of those who struggle. The reason Skip Bayle s‘ platform makes him dangerous?He’s doing the exact opposite to society, and to the lives of those who struggle.

One player that could be considered a priority for general manager Terry Fontenot Chris Bounds Jersey to re-sign is slot receiver . Gage, who began his career as a depth receiver when drafted out of LSU, spent the last two seasons carving out a larger role in the offense. Last season, he caught 66 pa ses for 770 yards and four touchdowns.Falcons coach Arthur Smith said that Gage has progre sed well since being selected by Atlanta in 2018 and the team would be interested in bringing him back. „Ru sell did a terrific job,“ . „He got injured early in the season but came back D.J.

As the team’s No. 2 receiver, the former sixth-round pick tallied 72 catches for 786 yards and four scores. Atlanta is looking at all options when it comes to free agency, but the team is limited by a lack of salary cap room. .Gage will have a market thanks to his shiftine s and agility. In two years with an expanded role, he’s averaged 11.3 yards per reception and been a stable pa s-catcher with limited John Fulkerson Jersey drops.Fontenot will have to decide if Gage is a priority to re-sign in the coming days before the start of free agency come March 16. Now with Ridley gone, it makes his return more likely than it was before the suspension.

FRISCO – Sean Payton likes the Dallas Cowboys.Oh, but you already knew that.This „like“ is more specific and more pre sing, though, than the former New Orleans Saints head coach’s fondne s for owner Jerry Jones‘ franchise.This is about Week 1 in the NFL, as during an Buffalo Bills Jackets appearance on Kay Adams‘ show, Payton revealed his prediction for the marquee Sunday night showdown pitting the home-standing Cowboys against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Payton is picking … The Cowboys.“I think it’ll be interesting,“ Payton told Adams, including in his reasoning the work of Dallas defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. „I like Jim Kelly T Shirts Dallas in this game. I think Dallas‘ defense is improved again. I think Dan does a great job.“Those guys play with great speed to the football, they’ll turn it over.

Injuries are a part of life in the NFL. The phrase next man up is echoed by every team around the league and signifies the need for players to step up when teammates are down.The Indianapolis Colts will begin training camp this week at Grand Park Sports Complex for the fourth consecutive season. Every player is required to undergo a physical before being cleared for practice. Unfortunately, some will have to wait before they can take the field. before the start Poona Ford Jersey of camp. Linebacker Darius Leonard, defensive end Tyquan Lewis, safety Rodney McLeod, and wide receiver Mike Strachan have all been placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Defensive tackle Eric Johnson II has been placed on the active/non-football injury (NFI) list.With these players set to mi s the beginning of camp, the door is wide open for other players at these positions to show what theyre made of. Here are the Colts players who must take advantage of the opportunities ahead.Leonard had back surgery in June to fix a lingering i sue that had caused problems throughout the offseason. The surgery should also help fix a functioning i sue with his ankle that plagued the All-Pro linebacker throughout the 2021 season. Leonard is expected back before the regular season starts but will mi s time to begin training camp.With Leonard out, Speed will slide into the starting WILL linebacker spot. Speed has filled in for Leonard previously, most notably against the Arizona Cardinals last December. Speed led the team that day with nine tackles in the win.While Leonards job is not in jeopardy, Speed still has an opportunity to impre s coaches. He can solidify himself as the fourth linebacker on the team and could earn a look at some snaps at SAM. Speed is also in a contract year and will be looking to prove to the Colts that he deserves a second deal.Lewis suffered a torn patellar tendon in his knee in Week 8 against Bobby Wagner Jersey the Tenne see Titans. Lewis injured the knee on the same play he recorded his first career interception. He mi sed the rest of the season as a result.Lewis is still working to get back to 100% from the injury, which leaves the door open for Banogu to make an impact. A former second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Banogus career has been a ma sive disappointment up to this point. The defensive end has only recorded 2.5 sacks in three seasons, all during his rookie year, and has only been active for 18 games the past two seasons.This preseason may be the last opportunity for Banogu to make an impre sion on this team. He enters a contract year as a prime trade candidate for the Colts if he cannot prove he is deserving of a role on defense. Banogu will need to have the camp of his life to save his career.McLeod comes to the Colts after spending the past six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. McLeod was placed on the PUP list, but his injury has not been officially announced by the Colts. The timing of the injury is not ideal for McLeod, as he was to compete for the starting strong safety spot following the retirement of Khari Willis this spring.Scroll to ContinueThe door is now wide open for Cro s to take hold of the strong safety competition. Cro s was drafted in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft after the Colts traded up for the rookie. General manager Chris Ballard and the Colts Rasheem Green Jersey front office were enamored by the young safetys ability to take the ball away and make plays all over the field.Cro s was thought to be the favorite for the strong safety position entering camp due to his skill set and style of play. With McLeod set to mi s time to begin camp, Cro s can lock up the starting spot with an impre sive early performance.Strachan was one of the stars of training camp in 2021. The rookie wide receiver made plays each day in practice and stood out in the preseason. However, Strachan did not have much of an impact once the regular season rolled around and now enters camp with an undisclosed injury that dates back to OTAs this spring.The wide receiver most closely competing with Strachan for a bigger role in the Colts offense is Patmon. Patmon is entering his third year in the NFL and has little production to show for it thus far. He recorded two catches for 21 yards and a touchdown in eight games last season.While Patmon has not had much production, he has continually worked on his craft to earn a larger role. In spring practices, Patmon received some snaps with the first-team offense and has been training with Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. all offseason. If Patmon can have an impre sive start to camp, he could solidify his spot ahead of Strachan and as a key backup in the wide receiver room.Johnson II was taken in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft to provide depth to the interior of the defensive line. The rookie defensive tackle will compete to backup Pro Bowler DeForest Buckner. Johnsons injury has not been announced yet, so there is no information on how much time he will mi s.The injury to Johnson II now presents a big opportunity to another rookie in Brooks. Brooks was taken just one round after Johnson II this past spring out of Cincinnati. The defensive tackle had 7.5 sacks last season as he helped lead the Bearcats to the College Football Playoff.Brooks is a fiery defensive tackle prospect who will be one to watch throughout training camp and the preseason. His motor and pa C.J. Prosise Jersey s rushing ability jump off the film, and he will be looking to impre s coaches in a crowded defensive line group. With Johnson II out, it may be all Brooks needs to gain the advantage and establish a role on defense.

Five Players Who Must Take Advantage of

, Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach was asked about three of the Chiefs‘ top pending free agents: left tackle Orlando Brown Jr., safety Tyrann Mathieu, and cornerback Charvarius Ward.Here’s what Veach had to say about the trio and what Veach’s comments indicate about their futures.“With Orlando, I’m sure using the franchise tag is likely. We’re going to work hard to get a deal done with him.“Takeaway: Brown will be backBrown was never likely to be one-and-done in Kansas City after being acquired in a pre-draft trade le s than a year ago, and Veach has now publicly made that all but official.By placing the franchise tag on Brown, the Chiefs would keep their options open while securing their left tackle for 2022. If no further deal is reached, the Chiefs would hold Brown’s rights for ’22 at a cap hit . However, both sides still have Kellen Mond Jersey incentives to agree to a long-term deal for a new multi-year agreement. This would give the Chiefs and Brown several months to negotiate a long-term deal to keep Brown in Kansas City for years to come. If Brown does sign a long-term deal after being tagged, the franchise tag year would be scrapped in favor of the construction of the new deal. For Brown, a long-term deal would provide more guaranteed money. For the Chiefs, a longer contract would allow them to carry a lower cap hit in 2022 while locking down their left tackle of the future. Brown’s time in Kansas City seems extremely likely to continue.Scroll to Continue“After the Cincinnati game, we had a chance to talk, we communicated that we certainly love Tyrann and Tyrann loves being here. This is actually the start of that proce s now. So once the season ends, the coaches do their deal, and we sit back and we collect all the information and get with the coaches after they go through their scheme evaluations, and we know that once Indy rolls around, we’ll have a chance to obviously, on one hand Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , see all the great college prospects, but on the other hand,have an opportunity to talk with our players‘ agents and exchange information, so we’ll start that proce s this week and hopefully everything ends in a positive direction.“Takeaway: Nothing is certain at this pointVeach’s confidence in the Chiefs‘ strategy in retaining Brown comes in stark contrast to his comments on the plan for Mathieu. While the Chiefs have the franchise tag option for Brown, tagging Mathieu would be extremely cost-prohibitive . Also worth noting: Brown turns 26 in May. Mathieu will turn 30, also in May.While the Chiefs reiterate at every turn that they love Mathieu (and while Mathieu publicly says he wants to stay in Kansas City), the Chiefs would likely hesitate to extend Mathieu into his mid-30s. Something Bashaud Breeland Jersey along the lines of a three-year deal with a team-friendly out after year two could be enough to bridge the gap, but Mathieu should be highly pursued by other teams who may be more willing to add guaranteed years to his contract.“Year by year, he got better and better and better, and he’s certainly a guy that, just like Tyrann and some more of these players, we’re going to have dialogue with them. Love to have Charvarius back, think he’s a talented player, he’s done well in our scheme. Coaches like him, I like him, and y’know, it’s one of those things that you have to work through in free agency when you have a talented roster and try to get as many of these guys as you can and keep these guys under contract, but he’ll be a guy that we’ll certainly look forward to spending a lot of time with here in the next few weeks.Takeaway: Waiting on the marketCharvarius Ward has been among the most underrated members of the Chiefs defense during his time as one of the team’s top cornerbacks, but suddenly, he’s likely to get much more attention.The Chiefs would certainly love to bring Ward back on a deal similar Ameer Abdullah Jersey to the one-year, $3.4 million tender they used on him in 2021, but the price tag will be much higher as Ward, a former undrafted free agent, hits free agency for the first time.Under Veach, the Chiefs have not paid a premium for their cornerbacks, either in salary or in draft picks. Retaining Ward seems like an outside po sibility at this point, with a chance for the Chiefs to buck their cornerback trend if they choose to retain Ward at market value.

Chiefs GM Brett Veach Sounds Off on KCs

Our series examining the Dolphins‘ 2022 regular season opponents continues with the Green Bay Packers.The Dolphins will face the Packers in Week 16 on Christmas Day at Hard Rock Stadium.2021 Record: 13-4, first in NFC North (lost vs. San Francisco in NFC divisional playoff round)Last Dolphins-Packers Meeting: 2018 Week 10 at Green Bay – Packers 31, Dolphins 12Early opportunities really compounded for the Dolphins, as did Jason Sanders field goals. Packers cornerback Tramon Williams fumbled a punt return, Cam Wake and Robert Quinn double-whammied Aaron Rodgers on a fourth-and-2, and the Dolphins even blocked a punt to open the second half. All three turnovers set up Sanders field Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey goals. If the Dolphins could have managed just a couple of touchdowns on those drives, that might have been able to overcome some of their own sloppy play. Brock Osweiler, who was started his fifth game for the injured Ryan Tannehill, contributed two turnovers, including an opening-drive fumble off a bad snap in the red zone. He also threw a third-quarter interception that would serve as the end of Miamis good fortune. The Packers ultimately became too tough of a match for the field-goal-happy Dolphins. Aaron Jones led the way on offense, rushing for a career-high 145-yards and two touchdowns, while Rodgers twice found Davante Adams for scores.The Packers had a rocky 2021 offseason following their narrow NFC Championship lo s against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 2020 league MVP Aaron Rodgers sparked headlines with a reported trade request on the opening day of the 2021 NFL. Rodgers ultimately found resolution after multiple meetings with the Packers front office, and despite the offseason controversy, Green Bay never mi sed a beat. The Packers went on to win their third straight division title, and Rodgers was awarded MVP for the fourth time in his career. Green Bay entered the NFC playoffs as the No. 1 seed, giving them a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout. Theyd end up beginning the post-season with a divisional round matchup with T.J. Watt Jersey the San Francisco 49ers, who upset the Cowboys in Dallas the week before. Despite the advantage of freezing temperatures at Lambeau Field, the Packers were served a 13-10 lo s, and another disappointing playoff exit.Scroll to ContinueDT Jarran Reed, WR Sammy WatkinsWith little cap flexibility, and having signed Rodgers to a new contract extension, Green Bay was relatively limited with what it could do in free agency. Jarran Reed will serve as a rotational piece on the Packers defensive line. He enters his seventh NFL season after spending last year with the Chiefs and his first five in Seattle. Reed has 24.5 career sacks. The oft-injured Sammy Watkins joins the Packers after posting 394 yards and one touchdown in his lone season in Baltimore. Watkins, a former fourth overall pick of the Buffalo Bills, started his career with 2,029 yards and 16 touchdowns in his first two season, but has since bounced around the NFL, spending time with the Rams, Chiefs and Ravens.WR Davante Adams, EDGE ZaDarius Smith, G Billy Turner, WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, G Lucas PatrickGreen Bay shocked the NFL when it decided to trade superstar wide receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders, shortly after agreeing to a long-term deal with Rodgers. Adams leaves Green Bay with a major void at receiver and without a clear No. 1 target for Rodgers in the pa sing game. Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb are the only returning wideouts with more than 10 receptions last season, with Marquez Valdes-Scantling also departing this offseason signing a free agent deal with the Chiefs. ZaDarius Smith mi sed most of last season, after posting 12.5 sacks in 2020. Billy Turner, a third-round pick of the Dolphins in the 2014 draft, was a valuable player for Green Bay the past three seasons, starting 33 games at guard and tackle.LB Quay Walker, DL Devonte Wyatt, WR Benny Snell Jr. Jersey Christian Watson, G Sean Rhyan, WR Romeo Doubs, OL Zach Tom, EDGE Kingsley EnagbareThe Packers had two first-round picks, thanks in part to the Adams trade. They James Washington Jersey chose to add to two players off the elite Georgia Bulldogs defense. Quay Walker is a big, fast, athletic off-the-ball linebacker who will pair nicely with 2021 All-Pro DeVondre Campbell. Wyatt has a high motor,with high athletic ability for a 300-pound defensive lineman. WR Christian Watson is a bit of an enigma for his position. He stands 6-5 but has deep-threat speed and elite athleticism. He does come from a small school (North Dakota State), but certainly catching pa ses from Rodgers can aid his development early on.Its very hard to predict what the Green Bay offense will look like without Davante Adams, but the Packers still boast the back-to-back league MVP at quarterback and have a potent rushing attack with Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon. The Packers also project to have one of the NFLs best defensive units, with no real clear holes. Star cornerback Jaire Alexander and breakout 2021 rookie Eric Stokes, along with safeties Adrian Amos and Darnell Savage, make up one of the best secondarys in the league. Rashan Gary and a healthy Preston Smith should give the Packers plenty of pa s-rush capabilities. Theres little reason to think the Packers wont find themselves in position to keep their division crown for a fourth year in a row.

Dolphins 2022 Opponent Breakdown Green B

NASHVILLE For the second week in a row, the Tenne see Titans got to see something different on the practice field.Wednesday, the Titans conducted a joint workout with the Arizona Cardinals at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park. The work between the teams was limited to 1-on-1 and 7-on-7 periods as well as several attempts at the two-minute drill to conclude the se sion. Along the way, the clubs separated and went through team ( Derrick Henry Jersey 11-on-11) work against themselves.This was easy communication, open communication about what they wanted to get done and what we wanted to get done, coach Mike Vrabel said. Things ran smoothly.Here is a rundown of some of the notable moments for Tenne sees defense on the day: Starting safeties Kevin Byard and Amani Hooker were heavily involved with the cornerbacks in the 1-on-1 period against Arizonas wide receivers. They certainly did not look out of place.Byard did not allow a completion in three 1-on-1 reps, and when the drill shifted to 2-on-2 near the goal line, he was in the right position after a short completion to stop the receiver well short of a touchdown. Hooker allowed one completion on three one-on-one reps with help from a drop on his first one.Its just about matchups and what were doing as a defense, Hooker said. If we want to work in playing man-to-man on receivers of if we want to work in playing man-to Bruce Matthews Jersey -man on a tight end were going to do both. We just want to make sure were getting our work in.Coach Mike Vrabel said injuries that limited the Cardinals numbers at tight end were a factor in the decision. Without Byard and Hooker, the rest of Tenne sees safeties were enough to match up there. Rookie inside linebacker Chance Campbell made the first notable play of the team period, when the Titans offense worked against its own defense. He knocked the ball free from wide receiver Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, after a short reception. I think thats the name of the game just try to make plays, the sixth-round pick out of Ole Mi s said. You can correct some mistakes with effort, and I think also when you fire to the ball those things happen. I just have to keep bringing that along.Scroll to ContinueCampbell gotten a lot of work recently in practice and in the preseason games. Part of it is because veteran Dylan Cole has mi sed time with an injury, and part of it is because he has shown he can handle the extra duties. If an opportunity arises, he pops in there, Vrabel said last week. He has studied. He’s learned multiple positions and he has tried to take advantage of his opportunities when he’s been out there. Special teams would try to probably be his primary role. But he is certainly giving himself a chance just by knowing a couple of different positions. Arizona wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro, capped the first period with a reminder that there is only so much a defensive back can do sometimes. In a 2-on-2 rep, the 6-foot-1, 212-pound Hopkins battled 5-foot-11, 197-pound cornerback Kristian Fulton for a jump ball in the end zone. Hopkins used his body to shield Fulton and then reached up with his right hand only and plucked the ball out of the air. Hopkins has scored nine touchdowns and averaged just under 100 Jevon Kearse Jersey receiving yards per game (99.7) in 14 career contests against the Titans. In this case, he showed he is just as much of a problem in practice. The 1-on-1 work between the offensive and defensive linemen did not have many notable moments.One, however, was when Harold Landry flashed a lightning-like spin move. The problem was that it was so fast, Tenne sees three-time sack leader spun himself right to the ground. He easily won his next rep when he started to the outside then quickly broke to the inside and shot past the blocker almost untouched. Third-year cornerback Chris Jackson had a couple of moments hed like to do over. In 7-on-7 work in the red zone, he allowed a receiver to elude him following a short catch and run to an opening that likely would have resulted in a touchdown. In the two-minute drill, he slipped at about the same time his man caught a pa s on a short out route. With Jackson out of the way, the receiver raced untouched to the end zone. Inside linebacker Zach Cunningham is known more for his work against the run than against the pa s, but he showed he is not exactly a slouch in the latter. In the 7-on-7 period, he broke of a fade in the end zone to running back James Conner, who has had at least 34 receptions each of the last four seasons. The Cardinals took a couple shots deep against Titans backups in the 7-on-7 period. On one, cornerback Greg Mabin was called for pa s Jayon Brown Jersey interference. On another, undrafted rookie Tre Swilling got beat and allowed quarterback Jarrett Guarantano to connect with wide receiver Andy Isabella for a touchdown.

The Miami Dolphins have been found guilty of tampering with Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, twice.Once when he was still leading the New England Patriots during their two decades of dominance in the NFL John Taylor T Shirts , and again while he was trying to take his Bucs squad to a second-straight Super Bowl.All of that, among other things, according to a report of findings following an investigation into the Dolphins organization after former head coach Brian Flores made several accusations about the inner workings of the franchise.“The Dolphins again had impermi sible communications with both Mr. Brady and his agent during and after the 2021 season, while he was under contract to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,“ the league found. „Those discu sions began no later than early December 2021 and focused on Mr. Brady becoming a limited partner in the Dolphins and po sibly serving as a football executive, although at times they also included the po sibility of his playing for the Dolphins.“So, the next question is, how do those in and around the Tampa Bay organization react. Well, that answer is different for each group.Let’s examine.THE FANSHow should fans feel about Brady talking with the Dolphins? Make no mistake, again to quote the findings, „…communications with both Mr. Brady and his agent…“, you quarterback had multiple talks with another NFL team about leaving his current squad for theirs.But how hurt should Bucs fans be, if at all?Well, that depends Trey Lance Jersey on how much loyalty you expect from a mercenary.Make no mistake about it, Brady came to the Buccaneers to win games, not because he loved the team growing up or had long-reaching bonds with the coaching staff, players, or the city of Tampa itself.Should the fans be upset? No. They should be happy it didn’t work and Brady is locked in trying to get Tampa Bay back to a Super Bowl, once again.THE MEDIAThe media has been told directly or through inference on several occasions, that there was nothing to the reports that Brady was in talks to join the Dolphins or that his ‚retirement‘ may have been the first move in doing just that.Well, turns out that was all at a minimum an effort to mislead, and at worst a flat-out lie.I don’t have to tell any of the veterans in the media world that getting half-truths or even lies from players, coaches, and organizations is part of the world we operate in. They’ve already learned that by now.But remember this the next time you want to lash out at a member of the media for not taking what’s said at face value.Scroll to ContinueShould the media be upset? To provide honest reporting, you need honest information.But to think we can control the motives and integrity of those we cover is illogical. Additionally, asking someone to publicly admit to playing a part in rules violation ahead of investigations and evidence is not realistic.So I don’t know if anger is the right word. Disappointed, maybe.THE TEAMLet’s be honest here, as said recently on the podcast if this team wins a Super Bowl nobody is going to care about this story.In fact, other than adding some added spice to next week’s joint practices and preseason games with the Dolphins themselves – as pointed out by – nobody should care about this past August 15th.Nobody, that is, that isn’t in the locker room, coaching staff, Trey Lance T Shirts or front office of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization.This is where the real deceit may or may not have taken place.And because we have no direct word of any, although stay tuned because I’m sure every player and coach with a mic in front of him or her is going to be asked about it, it’s hard to say how those inside the organization should feel.What I will tell you is, like it or not it happened and the cat, as they say, is out of Bryant Young Jersey the bag.Expect a lot of, ‚It’s a busine s,‘ type comments, and each man on the roster will have to lean on their profe sionalism and goals of being a champion as they move past this.“It doesn’t bother me,“ said coach Todd Bowles when asked about Brady talking with the Dolphins last December. „There’s just not a lot going on in sports right now. We’re not making it any bigger than it is.“So, should those inside the building be angry? Bowles doesn’t appear to be. And even if he were, one man can’t speak to each relationship between Brady and his teammates and coaches.For more on this and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers check out and on the !Stick with BucsGameday for more coverage on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers throughout the offseason.Follow BucsGameday on and

Former Ohio State Buckeyes wide receiver Chris Olave impre sed many with his performance in the 40-yard dash Thursday evening.With apparent ease, Olave ran a 4.26 in front of fans and NFL evaluators at Lucas Oil Stadium.On Wednesday, the talented wideout spoke about the potential of reuniting with Justin Fields, his former college quarterback.Having him in college John Taylor Jersey as my quarterback, I know what he can do on-and-off the field and I know how hard he works. I feel like we’re very similar in ways and I feel like we can complement each other if we do end up on the same team,“ Olave said.The 21-year-old wideout secured 98 receptions for 1,569 yards and 19 touchdowns in 20 games with Fields under center.In a couple of recent 2022 NFL mock drafts, Olave was being mocked to the Lions.Scroll to ContinueWith continued succe s Ray Ray McCloud Jersey at the Combine, the chances of Olave falling to the Lions diminish.According to SI’s , „Olave constantly threatens secondaries with his speed. Defenders always have to stay on their toes from the snap of the ball and leave cushion which opens up a lot for Olaves overall game. He times the snap well and has quick burst off the line to get upfield and into his route. He can go from complete sprint to stopping on the dime to come back to the ball. Even though his frame is thinner, Joe Montana T Shirts he demonstrates excellent effort when tasked with run blocking. Displays control of his body during the proce s of running his routes, as well as at the catch point to control himself in the air.

OWINGS MILLS, Md Ty Summers Jersey . The Ravens lost one of their cornerbacks to free agency.Anthony Averett reached a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to It’s uncertain whether the Ravens made Averett an offer, but the team needs to strengthen its depth at cornerback.The Ravens also parted ways with Tavon Young and Chris Westry. They are two players the team would consider re-signing.Baltimore has Paul Hornung Jersey already been active in free agency, signing outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith,safety Marcus Williams andright tackle Morgan Moses. All three players satisfy areas of need for the Ravens.Scroll to ContinueAverett was thrust into the starting lineup when Marcus Peters suffered a season-ending knee injury in training camp.He started a career-high 14 games and played 90 percent of the teams defensive snaps. Averett had three interceptions and 11 pa ses defensed. He alloweda 55% completion rate and 77.5 pa ser rating when targeted Corey Bojorquez Jersey by opposing quarterbacks.Former Ravens defensive coordinator Don Martindale said Averett had „Pro-Bowl potential.“Baltimore can help fill the void of Averett’s departure in this year’s NFL draft, perhaps with the 14th overall pick.Two playmakers that have been linked to the Ravens include Cincinatti’s Sauce Gardner and Washington’s Tren McDuffie. Both of those players should be able to make an immediate impact.The free-agency market is mostly thin for quarterbacks this offseason, so the Ravens also might be La’Darius Hamilton Jersey inclined to sign a veteran that is released by another team before training camp or at the start of next season.

Detroit Lions second-year linebacker is surely going to benefit from the subtle changes defensive coordinator has made to the defense.“Being able to play more downhill, not having to worry about too much. AG is making the defense a lot easier for the linebackers,“ told reporters after practice on Thursday. „And that’s what I like — being to play downhill, dropping in coverage, being able to read.

Everyone’s good and everyone has their special ability. It’s amazing. Not only that, but it makes each of us better. Like, we learn off each other. I will ask Alex (Anzalone) questions.

On Monday, as news of six roster cuts was hitting the wire, the Denver Broncos held court at UCHealth Training Center to introduce . As the first executive hire of new team CEO Greg Penner, Leech was introduced to Broncos Country on Tuesday, alongside his employer and new partner, general manager George Paton.Although Leech Ben Mason Jersey was hired for his expertise on the busine s side of operations, it’s fair to wonder how much impact and influence he’ll have on the actual football product on the field. Leech addre sed that topic head-on, clarifying what the division of labor will be at Dove Valley. Good question. I think one of the things, you may have heard me say it and others say, that our currency around here is winning. We are a football club. We’re a football organization,“ Leech said on Monday. „So all the oars are in the water in that direction, of being a succe sful football club on the field. My responsibility is to work with George, and I’ll do that. Christian Barmore Jersey We have a great relationship already.“Any good NFL operation has a succe sful busine s branch entwined with a winning football team on the field. Leech’s brief is to elevate the busine s side by working alongside Paton without meddling.“To support football and busine s, these two things can’t be succe sful without each other,“ Leech said. „So we will have great communication, great candid, open communication and my focus is outside the lines. I won’t be picking players or calling plays. I Byron Cowart Jersey ‚m focused on the fans and the community. Growing our fan base tremendously of Broncos Country and doing what we can to make our players succe sful on the field and off the field.“As Leech takes over for former CEO and team president Joe Ellis, who is staying on short-term in an advisory role to help with the transition, one of the hot topics among Broncos fans is the stadium, and whether the team will look to either a.) make any upgrades, or b.) set the wheels in motion to build a new one. Empower Field at Mile High is now more than 20 years old.Scroll to Continue First of all, Empower Field at Mile High is a first-cla s facility,“ Leech said. „It not only hosts amazing NFL games, but concerts and other events and it is a core Curtis Martin Jersey part of this community. There are a number of things that I will be looking at as I take over in this organization, obviously the stadium is one of them. On day one, I dont have any proclamations to make, but it is certainly something that I will be evaluating.To be decided…Leech is a highly respected sports executive and is viewed internally as an innovator with 25 years of experience at both the profe sional and collegiate levels.

The Atlanta Falcons involved themselves in a complicated dance with Deshaun Watson – complicated, especially, by the fact thay Matt Ryan was also cheek-to-cheek with the situation.Now Davante Adams Jersey Watson is gone, .And Matt Ryan – dangling in the wind for a time now – is still in Atlanta.It can be argued that the Falcons treated the 14-year NFL veteran and face of this franchise shabbily; we’ve seen an a sortment of national writers already e sentially „demanding“ – on behalf of a player they do not know – a trade. , a nasty divorce seems unlikely.But he has a right to be an „unhappy camper.“ So, how about just a divorce? . He also may view the Falcons as a team as „on the rise‘ Jim Otto Jersey ‚ as some of the po sible destinations.Are the Seahawks a more true contender than Atlanta is? Not nece sarily.Scroll to ContinueAre the Colts? Yes, surely.So let’s call it a trio of options.One, mend fences in Atlanta. Ryan is a Falcon. He and Sarah and his Dave Casper Jersey family have built a life here, complete with deep charity-based ties in the community. And he’s never seemed the „mercenary“ type. Combine competitivene s with comfort, and Ryan stays.Two, . The Seahawks? Seattle finished 7-10 last season – same as Atlanta. And if Ryan demanded – well, OK, „asked“ – the Falcons to ship him there, maybe it’s a done deal … especially if Atlanta gets premium picks back.Three, Ryan plugs in to a team that might be „on the verge.“That’s the Colts. They were almost good with Carson Wentz. Put Ryan behind that offensive line (instead of Atlanta’s wobbly one)? That might take 10 years off his football age.Interestingly, in the dance to come Marquel Lee Jersey : Deshaun Watson was the lead partner up until Friday, with the Falcons following his beat.

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers Marcus Davenport Jersey named Mitch Trubisky their starting quarterback, which was expected by many. But their backup is Mason Rudolph, and no one expected him to beat out Kenny Pickett.During the final three weeks of the summer, Pickett took a clear lead in second-tea snaps over Rudolph. He played with the twos in the final two preseason games and did not take a third-string snap at practice since the first preseason game.But, the Steelers decided Rudolph would be their backup, and therefore, chances are Pickett doesn’t even get James Hurst Jersey a helmet during gameday to start the season.Pittsburgh typically carries three quarterbacks somewhere on the roster, whether that’s two on the 53 and one on the practice squad or three on the active roster. They only keep two active Drew Brees Jersey on gameday, though, and if Rudolph is the No. 2, Pickett isn’t suiting up.So, the Steelers‘ emergency situation is Rudolph stepping in for Trubisky during a game. If a change needs to be made mid-week, Pickett has an opportunity to step into the role. Anything urgent, however, will be Rudolph.The first-round pick looks like he’ll spend the season inactive. A weird situation after the way the Steelers treated their quarterback battle in the final weeks. They had a plan all along, though, Montravius Adams Jersey and apparently, this is it.Scroll to ContinueMake sure you for the latest news, exclusive interviews, film breakdowns and so much more!Follow All Steelers on Twitter:

Kenny Pickett Might Spend Rookie Season

In four weeks, the four College Football Playoff teams will be revealed.There should be movement after Week 11. Michigan State, which opened at No. 3 in the initial CFP rankings, is bound to fall after losing 40-29 at Purdue. What will the CFP do with No. 6 Cincinnati now? The Bearcats escaped with a 28-20 victory against Tulsa that featured two goal-line fumbles in the final minutes.No. 9 Wake Forest lost 58-55to North Carolina. No. 5 Ohio State had a scare at Nebraska.Even No. 2 Alabama felt the heat from LSU.Style points were out the door, but that scramble for the top four spots is getting more complicated.Sporting News continues to sort those teams out based on how the contenders should be ranked, even if the CFP committee has other ideas.So thisis not a projection of Tuesday’s ranking; but more our opinion of how it should look. It’s difficult to see a team outside of this top 10 that would warrant serious playoff consideration.MORE: | With that our CFP playoff picture:Four in the College Football Playoff1. Georgia (9-0)Remaining schedule: at Tenne see, vs. Charleston Southern, at Georgia TechStetson Bennett threw a 35-yard TD pa s to Arian Smith on fourth-and-6 with 42 seconds left in the first quarter, and that erased any inkling of drama in a 43-6 victory against Mi souri. Bennett (13 of 19, 255 yards, 2 TDs) continues to command the offense well, and JT Daniels (7 of 11, 82 yards, TD, INT)saw extensive action in relief.It might not matter who is at quarterback. The defense has allowed just 6.6 points per game. Sammis Reyes Jersey Georgia closes out the SEC schedule against Tenne see in Week 11, and an unbeaten regular season might be enough to get in the CFP no matterwhat happens in Atlanta in the SEC championship game.2. Alabama (8-1)Remaining schedule: vs. New Mexico State, vs. Arkansas, at AuburnLSU had threechances to take the lead in the fourth quarter against the Crimson Tide, but Alabama came up with the stop every timeand finished off a 20-14victory. Bryce Young finished with 302pa sing yards for his sixth 300-yard game of the season, and Jameson Williams had 10 catches for 160 yards. Alabama should hold on to the No. 2 spot in the rankings, and all roads to lead to the SEC championship game against Georgia. Alabama can build momentum the next two weeks at home before the Iron Bowl.MORE: 3. Oklahoma (9-0)Remaining schedule: at Baylor, vs. Iowa State, at Oklahoma StateWe are aware the committee made a glaring Charles Mann Jersey statement by putting the Sooners at No. 8 in the initial rankings. This is where they should be ranked. Oklahoma remains unbeaten after a bye week, and despite concerns about five one-score victories against FBS schools, the Sooners still have a +168 point differential. Caleb Williams has a 203.7 pa ser rating, too, and the offense averages 48.5 points per game since he took over at quarterback. He is a difference-maker on this team, and that correction in the rankings is coming.4. Cincinnati (9-0)Remaining schedule: at South Florida, vs. SMU, at East CarolinaThe Bearcats survived Tulsa in a wild finish at home. The Bearcats won 28-20, and needed the help of a goal-line fumble on fourth down in the final minute to seal the victory. Star running back Jerome Ford exited with a left leg injury, and Cincinnati did not score the style points many are looking for against that American Athletic Conference. The good news? Cincinnati didn’t lose. Oregon likely will climb to Casey Toohill Jersey No. 3 in the actual rankings, but the Michigan State lo s combined with Ohio State’s ho-hum performance against Nebraska does not hurt. The path to the playoff remains open, especially if Notre Dame keeps winning, but the next two teams will need another lo s.Two out5. Oregon (8-1)Remaining schedule: vs. Washington State, at Utah, vs. Oregon StateThe Ducks‘ grip on the final CFP spot is tenuous. The victory against Ohio State is recognized, but that lo s to Stanford is becoming a bigger eye-sore given the Cardinals‘ 3-6 record.Oregon still took care of busine s at Washington with a 26-16 victory in a key Pac-12 North showdown. Running back Travis Dye was the star with 28 carrires for 211yards, and quarterback Anthony Brown (63 yards, TD)continues to be a factor in the running game. Oregon still remains the best bet to win the Pac-12, but Cincinnati also has a top-10 victory and hasn’t lost yet. This debate is far from over.6. Ohio State (8-1)Remaining schedule: vs. Purdue, vs. Michigan State, at MichiganThe Buckeyes may climb to the No. 4 spot in the actual rankings, and they can safely keep themselves into the top four by winning a fifth straight Big Ten championship. Should Ohio State be concerned after a 26-17 scare at Nebraska? C.J. Stroud pa sed for 405 yards and two TDs, but he also threw two picks in a pa s-happy attack. The Buckeyes had nearly a 2-to-1 pa s/run ratio. The close call took away from a breakout peformance from Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who had 15 catches for 240 yards and a TD with Garrett Wilson out. That’s back-to-back uneven performances for the Buckeyes, and they will try to get back on track at home against Purdue.Four to watch7. Michigan State (8-1)Remaining schedule:vs. Maryland, at Ohio State, vs. Penn StatePurdue strikes again. The Spartans are the latest top-five team to lose after a 40-29 lo s to the Boilermakers. The Spartans‘ pa s defense was exposed against Purdue. Quarterback Aidan O’Connell pa sed for 536 yards and three TDs, and now Michigan State must win out in the Big Ten East. The Spartans have the top-10 victory against Michigan in hand, but the playoff hopes will come down to the trip to Ohio State on Nov. 20. Michigan State pulled that off in 2015. They will be heavier underdogs this time around.8. Michigan (8-1)Remaining schedule: at Penn State, vs. Maryland, at Ohio StateMichigan bounced back from the Michigan State collapse with a convincing 29-7victory against Indiana. The Spartans‘ lo s against Purdue was a bonus, and if Ohio State beats Michigan State then the Wolverines are back in busine s in the Big Ten East. Blake Corum left with an injury in the first quarter, but Ha san Haskins stepped up with 168 rushing yards and a TD. Cade McNamara played mistake-free football with 168 yards and two TDs, and the Wolverines‘ defense got its swagger back against the Hoosiers. Will that travel to Penn State, where Michigan has lost its last two games?9. Notre Dame (8-1)Remaining schedule: at Virginia, vs. Georgia Tech, at StanfordThe Irish continue to be the companion piece to Cincinnati’s playoff run. Notre Dame defeated Navy in a 34-6 blowout; the Irish’s fourth straight victory since the lo s to the Bearcats. Jack Coan finished 23 of 29 for 269 yards and a TD, and Tress Way Jersey Kyren Williams rushed for 95 ya

HOUSTON — What will the do when on the clock in the 2023 NFL Draft? Should they target a quarterback? An edge rusher? Perhaps both? In the latest mock draft from , the Texans add talent on both sides of the ball with their first two picks. Thanks to the Houston currently owns two first-round selections next April. With their initial pick at No. 2, the Texans pull the plug on the Davis Mills experiment and select . Stroud is currently in the running with Alabamas Bryce Young and Floridas Anthony Richardson for the title of QB1.Considering the difficult circumstances, Davis Mills Troy Aikman T Shirts exceeded expectations as a rookie. Depending on how comfortable the Texans are with Millss development as a full-year starter in 2022, its po sible that theyll go in a different direction (than quarterback) next April, as the organization still has plenty of holes to addre s. … Given his combination of arm strength, accuracy, size, mobility and smart decision making, Stroud is my QB1 in this draft cla s. -Leading the Buckeyes to an 11-2 record in 2021, Stroud threw for 4,435 yards, 44 touchdowns and six interceptions while posting a pa ser rating of 186.6. He completed 71.9 percent of his throws and averaged 10.1 yards per play. In the Buckeyes season-opening win over Notre Dame, Stroud went 24 of Dallas Cowboys Jersey 34 pa sing for 223 yards and two touchdowns. The 6-3, 218-pound quarterback is expected to be a front-runner for the Heisman Trophy. Scroll to ContinueWith the Browns pick at No. 16, Houston elects to add a more physical presence to its pa s rush. Although the Texans will mi s out Demarcus Lawrence T Shirts on talents such as Alabamas Will Anderson Jr., Georgia’s Nolan Smith and Clemsons Myles Murphy, they still land a top-tier prospect in .Had Foskey declared for the 2022 draft, he likely would have been a top-50 pick, and continued development could catapult him (high) into the first round. Foskey had 11 sacks and six forced fumbles as a junior. Jonathan Greenard had a strong second season in Houston (eight sacks in 13 games). Greenard and Foskey would give the Texans a talented pair of young defensive ends. – Foskey, a 6-5, 265-pound defensive end, is coming off his best season in South Bend. A projected top-50 pick in last years draft, Foskey totaled 52 total tackles, 10 sacks, 9.5 tackles for lo s and six forced Leighton Vander Esch T Shirts fumbles while helping the Irish finish 11-2. The Texans elected to add veteran talent this offseason at defensive end, bringing in names such as Jerry Hughes and Mario Addison, along with Rasheem Green.

NFL Mock Draft 2023 2 1st-Round Picks –

The Buckeyes are going to have a new quarterback under center when they take the field Saturday against Akron.Coach Ryan Day said on 97.1 The Fan that C.J. Stroud will sit out for the game as he continues to rest a shoulder injury, with Jack Miller and Kyle McCord getting the bulk of the playing time against the Zips. Day said Stroud would be available only on an „emergency“ basis.Day said Stroud has rested his shoulder the last two days. Said he plans to use Stroud more on „emergency“ basis this week and go with Kyle McCord and Jack Miller. A bit of news there, huh? Bill Rabinowitz (@brdispatch) MORE: With Stroud sitting out, Ohio State will have a new quarterback for the second time in 2021. Here’s what you Teddy Bridgewater Jersey need to know.What is C.J. Stroud’s injury?Stroud has been off to a solid, if unspectacular, start to his Ohio State career. He was explosive in the second half of the season-opener against Minnesota and finished the game having completed 13 of 22 pa ses for 294 yards with four touchdowns and an interception.He threw for the second-most single-game pa sing yards against Oregon at 484 yards on 35-of-54 pa sing with three touchdowns and a pick, but was far from perfect as the Buckeyes lost 35-28. They then looked mediocre against a Tulsa team that should have resulted in a blowout, with Stroud going just 15-for-25 with Chase Edmonds Jersey 185 yards, one touchdown and one interception as Ohio State only won 41-20 against the 0-2 Golden Hurricane.Following the win against Tulsa, Stroud said he wasn’t feeling 100 percent after he sustained a shoulder injury against Oregon.“I was healthy enough to play, Stroud said, according to . I’m definitely not 100%, but who is 100% around this time?Earlier in the week, Day had said Stroud would still be on track to start on Saturday, with the expectation that McCord and Miller would receive playing time against the Zips, .MORE: Now that Stroud has been moved into an emergency capacity, the focus is now when he will return in a full-time capacity. Day did not say when Stroud will be back, only that he would be available just in an emergency capacity on Saturday.The Buckeyes will play Rutgers on the road after Akron, and though they will likely open as favorites against the Scarlet Knights, Day will certainly want to have his signal-caller back for that game.Who is Jack Miller?Miller came to Ohio State in the same cla s as Stroud. Similarly to Stroud, he is considered a pro-style quarterback, though he arrived with far le s acclaim. as a three-star quarterback, the 10th-best in the cla s and the 12th-best QB from the state of Arizona. At Chaparral High, he recorded more than 10,000 yards and 130 total touchdowns, .Miller set state records in Arizona with 115 pa sing touchdowns, 3,653 pa sing yards and 53 total touchdowns in a season and started all four years for his team. He was also named the MVP at The Opening Los Angeles that netted him a spot in the Elite 11 Finals.Who is Kyle McCord?Between the two quarterbacks expected to receive time on Saturday, McCord comes in with plenty more hype.McCord was a star for Pennsylvania powerhouse St. Joseph’s Prep and was a four-star by 247Sports in the 2021 cla s. The recruiting service listed him as the No. 49 prospect in the nation, the No. 8 quarterback and second-best prospect in Pennsylvania.He started three years for the team and pa sed for more than 2,000 yards and 30 touchdowns in his sophomore and junior seasons. He finished his career with city and league records in pa sing yards at 6,887 and touchdown pa ses at 88.Though not a particularly mobile quarterback, McCord has the potential to make plays Brennan Scarlett Jersey with his legs., McCord is expected to get the official start on Saturday.Will Quinn Ewers get playing time for Ohio State?The big question on the minds of Ohio State fans is whether uber-prospect Quinn Ewers will get in the game.The answer? Not going to happen.According to The Athletic’s Bill Landis, Ewers will be inactive for the game.Ryan Day says Quinn Ewers would be unavailable this week, in case you were wondering. Bill Landis (@BillLandis25) It’s understandable that Ohio State fans would want to see Ewers slot in at quarterback. He is the highest-ever rated recruit Ohio State has landed as . That’s higher than the 0.9999 score of Trevor Lawrence and recent Ohio State star Justin Fields (0.9998).However, it is also easy to understand why Ewers is not playing on Saturday. , meaning he is of the age of most high school seniors and a year younger than McCord, the only true freshman in the QB room.Ewers arrived at the start of training camp in August, but did mi s time with an injury, .“I think he would tell you that it’s been hard for him, kind of jumping into this thing during the preseason, and then being out for a little bit of a stretch, Day said earlier in the week.Day said they are trying to get him as much information as Jakeem Grant Jersey po sible and that they are trying to catch him up to speed.“He’s trying. He’s working at it. But once we get into the season, it’s very, very difficult to get guys to catch up and get them the reps, because we need to get the guys reps who are going to play in the game,“ Day said, per the Dispatch.

Draco Bynum and Jeremiah Martin brought the guy down for a 4-yard gain.With the game way out of hand at Husky Stadium, a Curtis Martin Jersey play such as this typically wouldn’t mean much to anyone in the big scheme of things.It did to Bynumit’s still his only career tackle.A 6-foot-4 and 280-pound junior, the defensive lineman from Wilsonville, Oregon, has spent four long seasons in the UW football program trying to move up and make a breakthrough.Bynum has been used sparingly playing behind the likes of Tuli Letuligasenoa, the departed Taki Taimani (to Oregon), Faatui Tuitele, Jacob Bandes, Noa Ngalu and last season’s newcomers Voi Tunuufi and Kuao Peihopa.With a new Husky head coach in Kalen DeBoer and a defensive-line coach in Inoke Breckterfield, Bynum might be best positioned to overcome any preconceived notions anyone might have regarding where he belongs on the depth chart and in the rotation.He’s a player who would have been best advised to attack the offseason Corey Davis Jersey with more intensity than before with the idea of impre sing the new coaching staff and making inroads.The defensive tackle was one of two Bynums on the UW roster until the senior wide receiver named Terrell (no relation), a California native, part-time starter and regular contributor, transferred to USC for the coming season.Scroll to ContinueWith spring practice a few days away, we’re offering intel and observations gathered on the UW football personnel in a series of stories on every scholarship player from No. 0 to 99. We’ll review each Husky’s previous starting experience, if applicable, and determine what comes next under DeBoer.As is the case with any New York Jets T Shirts coaching change, it’s a new football beginning for everyone, including the Huskies‘ No. 59.Bynum arrived at the UW after winning a 2017 Under Armour Big Man Challenge weight event in Los Angeles and playing in the 2018 U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio’s Alamodome. Heady credentials, for sure. Yet his strength didn’t guarantee him college succe s.He redshirted as a Husky true freshman, appeared in three games the following season that included snaps in the 2019 Las Vegas Bowl against Boise State, pulled a solo game appearance in 2020 and got on the field three more times last season, including in the season-ending Colorado and WSU games.Bynum has that lone tackle to show for it. He should aim for another 5 to 10 more this season. Mostly, he needs to wrap his arms around playing time.UW Starter or Not: Bynum faces a significant challenge to become a starter, especially with Denzel Mims Jersey the Husky defensive line under the microscope as a position area in need of major improvement. He’s at a personal cro sroads for how much of an impact he’s going to make as a collegian. Bynum should aim for getting on the field on game day for meaningful minutes and go from there.

The could add multiple wideouts to the roster this offseason.After receivers coach Antwaan Randle El disclosed to reporters at the Senior Bowl his desire to ask for multiple new wideouts to be added to the roster, it certainly makes sense for the front office to seriously listen and oblige due to the glaring need on offense.With multiple free agents and a deep cla s of Tim Boyle Jersey wideouts available via the NFL draft, general manager Brad Holmes will have plenty of work to do in order to sign the right talent to add to and complement the current Detroit Lions Pet Gear roster.Miami Dolphins wideout Will Fuller is coming off of an underwhelming 2021 season.After injuring his thumb, Fuller only appeared in two games last season.It is unfortunate the 28-year-old has never really been able to remain healthy in the six seasons he has played in the league.Scroll to ContinueThe Dolphins took a flyer on the talented wideout, but the $10 million investment Jason Cabinda Jersey certainly did not yield any tangible returns.According to , „Fuller’s status became a regular topic during then-head coach Brian Flores‘ media se sions with rumblings that there might have been i sues at play to explain Fuller’s absence beyond the finger injury. Flores said in late December that Fuller has suffered „setbacks“ in his recovery and was done for the season and then Fuller posted a pictured of himself on Instagram showing what appeared to be a cast on his left hand, the implication being that he had just Hunter Bryant Jersey had surgery. In all, the Dolphins didn’t get much return on their $10 million one-year investment on Fuller.“The NFL’s legal two-day tampering period begins on March 14.At that time, clubs may contact and enter contract negotiations with agents representing players who will become unrestricted free agents.

HENDERSON, Nev.-The Las Vegas Raiders specialists are among the best in the NFL. A.J. Cole is not only known for making big plays, bu this personality relaxes the locker room with his big jokes.Take a moment and enjoy Cole when you watch the video below, and read the transcript:Punter AJ ColeQ: What are you working on at this point in training camp?Cole: Just working on the cohesion with Trent Sieg and Daniel Carlson . Its something that we have a lot of reps in the bank, but its not something we are taking for granted. So, we are trying to go out there every single day and build that cohesion, build that trust and there is never a point where weve gotten enough reps and weve gotten enough trust in each other, so thats really big. Ive worked a lot on my directional punting in the offseason, so thats something that Im going to go into this year really trying to focus on. Obviously, the distance and the hang time is something Im always working on, but I think my big focus this offseason was directional punting and just trying to put that ball outside the numbers as much as po sible. That was a big focus for me.Q: Brian Piccolo Jersey Youve been crushing it in practice. Do you feel like you are going to peak too soon?Cole: I dont really think thats a thing nece sarily. I think you are always trying to push yourself. You are always trying to find the next peak, keep working on all your different stuff you can do. I feel good about where I am at right now. Body feels good and just trying to stack days together and get ready for the season.Q: How has the transition to a new special teams coach been going so far?Cole: Yeah, its been good. Coach McMahon has coached some incredible specialists in his time from having Adam Vinatieri and Pat McAfee in Indy. Just throughout his career hes coaches some incredible guys. Me, Daniel and Trent are just trying to soak up some of that knowledge, some of the things that hes picked up from those guys. Trying to build that relationship, build that trust before we get into the season. Any time you have a new coach and new players, its definitely an adjustment. But I think we are learning a lot about each other, and hes got a lot of info that he can really provide for us that we can absorb and get a lot out of. Q: When there is a coaching change J.P. Holtz Jersey like that, do you ask people around the league about him to see what sort of expectations there might be?Cole: Sort of. I dont really know anybody super well that hes coached. Ive talked to a couple guys that just kind of have been around him. We got a couple guys here that played with him in other places, but I think more so you just kind of have a conversation with him and figure out straight from him what hes looking for and what he expects of you.Q: What are your early takeaways of your new teammates and new coaches?Cole: I cant speak highly enough about the guys we brought in through free agency, the draft, undrafted free agents. They are just awesome guys to be around. Everybody comes in with a lot of energy, great attitudes, so I really cant speak highly enough. Its a locker room full of just awesome people. I look forward to sitting around the lunch table and just shooting the breeze with them and talking about whatever, working with them. All these guys are awesome. The coaching staff has come and earned the trust of the Chicago Bears Accessories team, so we are looking forward to where that leads. But yeah, I cant speak highly enough about everybody we brought in. Really high-character guys that are just great to be around. People that make you want to show up to the building every day.Q: First day in padsYou offer to teach anybody how to tackle?Cole: Yeah, you guys are earning your paycheck out here. First day of pads and you are going to have a bunch of audio bytes from the specialists. I dont have any headlines for you about cracking skulls or anything out there, but yeah, no tackling circuits for the special teams. We are just out there doing what we do.Q: Any thoughts on what Derek Carr is doing with his hairstyle ?Cole: Yeah, every time I see him it seems to get shorter, which is not how hair works. So, I think hes been getting haircuts behind my back. Dont love that. I ask him every day if he feels good about it, if he looks himself in the mirror and feels good about his hair, and it seems like he does right now. So, Im happy for him. Obviously, Im a fan of length. But weve brought in guys like Brandon Bolden, Mack Hollins who are kind of holding it down on that side of the ball.Scroll to ContinueQ: Was Maxx Crosby taking reps at long snapper today?Cole: Yeah, you always want to have a backup long snapper just in case something where to happen. But Maxx is extremely competitive, and Maxx is my friend, so I think he would try hard out there.Q: Is Daniel Carlsons hair competition for you?Cole: Yeah, so the thing about me, Trent and Daniel, we are going on year four together. So, we spend like an egregious amount of time together, in the building, outside the building. We are basically together every time but sleeping. Three meals together. We are just like in each others air space all day long, so I kind of said we are sort of morphing into the same person and maybe like five or six years from now well just be indistinguishable. Well just kind of be like symbiotic twins or whatever. I dont know what those are called, but yeah, basically well just be one conglomerate person, just the average of each other.Q: Who is the most entertaining guy to be around at the lunch table?Cole: Mack Hollins, who has gotten a lot of, maybe almost too much conversation in these pre s conferences. Hes the guy thats always got like an interesting topic to talk about. We had a whole, long conversation the other day about different animals, where you would want to fight them, right? So, if youd rather fight a lion on land or youd rather fight an alligator in the water. That was Jarrett Stidham, Ameer Abdullah, was there, we were all just sitting Damien Williams Jersey around just talking about different animals and how wed fare in the wild. So, yeah, those are just some of the samples of what we are talking about in-between meetings.Q: Is it true that at one point Mack Hollins had a pet lion growing up?Cole: I have no idea. I dont know anything of that, but he did post on his Instagram story the other day a hypothetical about would you rather live in an apartment or a mansion that was full of rattlesn

However, as the Seahawks enter a new chapter in their franchise history, they do so hoping to once again field Dallas Cowboys Rompers a dominant defense.Of course, asking those on the roster currently to perfectly recreate what guys like Richard Sherman or Earl Thomas did would be foolish. At its peak, the Legion of Boom was a nearly unstoppable force against opposing offenses.However, the Seahawks have talent in the secondary that can make for a formidable group.

Learning from one of the best cornerbacks of the last decade could be a huge boost for Woolen towards becoming a core defensive piece to build around.Scroll to ContinueIt is unlikely that Woolen is good as Sherman was right out of the gate, and expecting him to be would be unfair to Woolen. However, he has shown flashes of what he can be, and if he realizes his potential with the Seahawks, then they have themselves a future Ezekiel Elliott Jersey franchise cornerback to build their defense around. .

The New York Giants reached the NFL-mandated 80- Zach Allen Jersey man roster limit by making five moves that are medical-related.The Giants took advantage of a new roster rule which allows teams to move any players on the Active/PUP list at the start of training camp to the inactive/PUP list. In this case, the Giants moved offensive linemen Matt Peart (ACL) and Nick Gates (leg), who while on active PUP counted against the roster totals, to inactive status.Although Gates and Peart are not expected to be ready to return at all this year, the change in their status means that they not only no longer count against the roster total, but they must remain on the inactive PUP list for a minimum of four weeks, down from the six-week time frame in past years.The Giant also placed three players on season-ending injured reserve, including two from the same position group.Scroll to ContinueThe three include inside linebacker Darrian Beavers, who suffered a torn ACL in Sunday’s preseason win over the Cincinnati Bengals, and tight Koda Martin Jersey ends Ricky Seals-Jones (toe) and Andre Miller (forearm), both of whom were injured earlier in training camp.With the Giants roster now at 80, the team is not only thin at tight end, but there are also some concerns about the offensive line and cornerback depth.In other injury/roster-related news, receiver Sterling Max Garcia Jersey Shepard (Achilles), who remains on active PUP, avoided being moved to the inactive PUP list, which signals that he’s getting close to a return. Head coach Brian Daboll has not given any timetable for Shepard’s return, just as he’s not given any timetables for any of the injured players‘ returns.And rookie edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux, who is expected to mi s 3-4 weeks after suffering a sprained MCL in Sunday night’s game, will meet with orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on his knee, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.Fowler notes that „no major surprises“ are anticipated to Anquan Boldin Jersey be found when Thibodeaux meets with Andrews, with whom the visit is just a second opinion regarding the injury itself and the prescribed recovery period.Join the Giants Country Community

OWINGS MILLS, Md. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson said he won’t let his contract situation become a distraction and he’s proven that by showing up almost a week early to the team’s training camp.Jackson will play the 2022 season under a fifth-year option that Troy Reeder Jersey pays him just over $23 million per season.His potential contract with the Ravens keeps increasing in value as other quarterbacks sign extensions.This past week, Kyler Murray reached a new deal with the Arizona Cardinals worth a reported $230.5 million over five years. Murray is now the NFLs second highest-paid quarterback, making $46.1 million salary per season behind Aaron Rodgers Justin Herbert Hoodies Sweatshirts ($50.3 million).Deshaun Watson was able to negotiate a five-year, $230 million fully guaranteed contract from the Cleveland Browns after securing a trade by the Houston Texans.

People can speculate any way they want.“But I don’t talk to Lamar. It’s not my role. What are you going to do with a guy who wants to be unique? You don’t browbeat him into being a conformist.“Jackson said his preference is to remain with the Ravens.The two sides now just have to reach a deal.

Wide receiver Parris Campbell isn’t afraid to admit that his career with the Indianapolis Colts hasn’t lived up to expectations so far.But the combination of the adversity he’s faced, his health, and a new quarterback in Matt Ryan who meshes with his skillset means Campbell is ready to have a breakout season in 2022.“Shoot, not only my role, but I think everyone’s role kind of expands,“ said Campbell when asked if Ryan’s ability to throw the ball over the middle helps him. „You guys know, but Matt likes to throw the ball around a lot. As a Colts offense, that’s what we like Indianapolis Colts Sleepwear Underwear to do in general. I think Matt coming in is going to take that to the next level.““Personally, for myself, obviously I’m lined up in the slot running those cro sing routes… that’s Matt’s bread and butter. Shoot even on that play in practice , I kind of tempo’d out of it because I felt like I got in the window too fast, and he’s like ‚No, just trust me, just run…just run.'““Little things like that, building that rapport and building that connection and building that trust, it’s going to elevate it for sure.“Campbell’s good work in practice has gotten the attention of head coach Frank Reich as well.“Matt just has a lot of confidence throwing the ball over the middle,“ said Reich on Saturday. „He’s done that his whole career and Parris feels comfortable in there too. A lot of his college stuff Zaire Franklin Jersey was inside there.““I think those two have a good chemistry. I think Matt’s working hard with all the receivers, but Parris has certainly been shining a little bit.“The early chemistry displayed by Ryan Peyton Manning Hoodies Sweatshirts and Campbell is no coincidence. The two of them have put in a lot of work in the short time since Ryan was acquired from the Atlanta Falcons.Scroll to Continue“We threw together four or five times before OTA’s, and then after OTA’s, before camp, we threw another three times,“ said Campbell. „So we’ve had a couple of good se sions in.“Campbell opened up on the struggles he’s had early in his career. The former second-round pick in 2019 has started just eight games in his first three seasons. „It’s been tough, but I think it’s set my mindset up for now,“ said Campbell. „I just feel so ble sed, because not everybody gets an opportunity like this. My career thus far hasn’t been what I’ve wanted it to be.““Every time I take that field I never take it for granted, because I know how fast it can be taken away.““I’ve experienced that,“ Campbell said quietly.The Colts invested a second-round pick in wide receiver Alec Pierce in the 2022 NFL Draft. Pierce and Jack Doyle Jersey the wide receiver from Reich.The wide receiver room outside of Michael Pittman is considered an achilles heel for this Colts team ( ), but it’s quite po sible with Pittman, Campbell, and Pierce it could be a strength by the end of the season.

Why Parris Campbell Breaks Out in 2022

When you reach the pinnacle of your sport and are crowned champions there is a natural sentiment to bring back the same roster and run it back to not me s with po sible chemistry.However, while keeping the same core of star players together is e sential, adding talent at positions of need should not be ignored. The Los Angeles Rams followed this philosophy this offseason, Pedro Avila Jersey following up their Super Bowl LVI victory with the addition of to shore up Blake Snell Jersey the .Wagner’s addition to the Rams‘ defense is a big boost for a team looking to repeat as Super Bowl champions, as he brings elite talent and a veteran presence. In 2021 as a Seattle Seahawk, recorded 93 solo tackles as he showed an ability to still fly to the ball.His talent has been on full display in training camp so far, but is not what has stood out to Rams‘ safety Jordan Fuller.Hall of Fame talent. You see all the plays he makes on the field, but I would say he’s a better teammate,“ Fuller said. „He’s definitely taken a lot of us under his wing and you can just see the leader he is.“Scroll to Continue“He has an aura about Tony Gwynn Jersey him and he’s been around for a long time. You can ask him a whole bunch of questions, but he’s a team-first guy too at the same time. He’s going to make his plays but put his team first. That’s what I love about him.No doubt adding will make a noticeable difference from a pure stats perspective. However, his impact goes beyond that. Adding his veteran presence will boost those around Zach Davies Jersey him on the defensive side of the ball as Wagner aims to help the Rams claim their second straight Super Bowl victory.

Top 25 college football coaching salarie

The NFL and sports world as a collective whole lost a giant on Friday as legendary reporter John Clayton pa sed away at the age of 67 due to an illne s.Since news broke on Friday afternoon, stories have poured in from hundreds and thousands of people whose lives were directly or indirectly impacted by Clayton. Few reporters covering any sport had a more far-reaching presence than the aptly named „Profe sor,“ who emerged as one of the overlooked architects that turned ESPN into the broadcasting Goliath that it is today. His wealth of knowledge in everything from the salary cap to roster construction coupled with his pa sion for his work truly made him one of one with no equal.Growing up in northern Indiana, aside from my parents, nobody had a Anibal Sanchez Jersey greater influence on my eventual career path than Clayton and John Madden. I remember grabbing a Nerf football in the basement and running around lofting the ball to myself, pretending to announce games as Madden. Then, I’d take a quick break from the action and get an update from the studio from Clayton, who was always ready with inside information and insight even into my fictional world.And of course, I’d finish with Clayton shouting, „Hey ma, I’m done with my segment!,“ referencing his iconic SportsCenter commercial where he rocked long hair and jammed to Slayer after doing a quick report for ESPN. As a metal enthusiast myself, that made me hold him in even greater reverence. I wanted to be a reporter someday and I aimed to be even half as good at the job as he was.Fast forwarding to 2018 when I first began my coverage as a part-time beat reporter, I could hardly speak when my good friend Rob Rang introduced me to Clayton, a man that I had idolized for decades. Those who know me well should understand that’s quite an accomplishment silencing me. But I had no idea what to say to a man I owed so much to even if we had never met before.I think Clayton sensed my anxiety pretty quickly. He walked over with a smile on his face and extended his hand, introducing himself as if I didn’t already know who he was. He welcomed me to Seattle and we spoke for a few minutes about what had just transpired on the field in a preseason game. His devotion to the sport was obvious as we talked about backup quarterback battles and roster bubble candidates.Since I was commuting from Spokane to cover games at that time and have only been on the beat full-time for two years, I didn‘ Ervin Santana Jersey t have many other chances to interact with Clayton in person.But I will never forget the generosity he showed me as a young reporter two years ago when I hit the road traveling to cover the Seahawks upcoming road playoff game against the Packers at Lambeau Field.Everything seemed to be smooth sailing at first. My trip from Seattle to Salt Lake City was an uneventful one, which is always good when you’re flying. But the second leg of my trip wouldn’t be near as fortunate, as stormy weather in Chicago led to the flight being delayed three times.Scroll to ContinueWith the weather not improving in the Windy City, I started to explore other travel options fearing my flight would be cancelled altogether. Initially, I tried to get a flight into Minneapolis and I was scrambling looking at hotels and rental cars knowing I would need to cancel my travel arrangements in Chicago too. It was an absolute me s and admittedly, I wasn’t handling the situation well.As I waited for an agent to comb through other flights I could potentially switch to, suddenly, I noticed my phone vibrating with a call from an unidentified number with a 206 area code. I answered and much to my surprise, Clayton was on the other end of the line ready to dish out an a sist, offering to carpool up to Green Bay the next morning.Unfortunately, I didn’t get Taylor Rogers Jersey the chance to pick the Profe sor’s brain on the three-hour trip north, as my flight ultimately got postponed to the next morning due to the airline not having any pilots available once weather conditions improved. With no other flights anywhere near Green Bay available, I slept a couple hours in a hotel provided by the airport before coming back early to finally make my way to Chicago.Somehow, I managed to get my rental car and get to Lambeau about 45 minutes before kickoff. Unexpectedly, Clayton came over to my spot in the pre s box moments after I arrived, smiling and saying, „Good to see you. I was worried you wouldn’t make it!“Considering I had talked to Clayton twice in person prior to that time, there was no reason for him to go out on a limb like he did when I was dealing with a difficult situation that I had never experienced before. But that was who he was with everyone, a kind, gentle soul who didn’t view himself as a superior to his peers even though he was one of the true heavy hitters in this profe sion.Having spoke to Clayton in person only a few short weeks ago, I’m still struggling to cope with the reality that he’s gone. I hoped it was little more than a bad dream and that I’d wake up on Saturday morning hearing him on the radio, unleashing his immense knowledge for this diehard sports fan to absorb as I have for more than 20 years.Moving forward, the Seattle Eddie Rosario Jersey sports scene and NFL coverage in general will never be quite the same without Clayton. He was truly one of a kind, a walking football encyclopedia always prepared for whatever was thrown at him who consistently pushed the limits to improve. Away from being the best in the busine s at his job, he was always ready to make time to lend a helping hand to others and cared deeply for his wife Pat, who has battled Multiple Sclerosis for several years.While none of us in the market covering teams individually will ever stack up to him and his pa sing leaves a permanent void, we should all look to emulate the qualities that made Clayton both an incredible reporter and an even better man. Treat everyone with kindne s, put pa sion into your craft, and first and foremost, prioritize your family and friends over everything else.

Corral has tremendous feel for maneuvering around in the pocket and while keeping his eyes downfield he gets low to slide up, back, or to the side to evade incoming defenders. He displays smooth and quick footwork to pivot and scan from one side of the field to the other and has a snappy release to get the ball out with pace. Corral shows a robotic level of perfection when executing run-pa s-options in the short area of the field and generally has great accuracy to hit his receiver in stride, plus understands when to use velocity or touch on throws behind the line of scrimmage. Corral usually throws with a wide, balanced base and has sufficient energy transfer from his hip which helps him put plenty of velocity on throws over the middle of the field into tight windows. Corral is also an effective deep ball thrower and has a unique effectivene s when pump faking – he really dips his shoulder Jurickson Profar Jersey and makes his body look like hes throwing, deceiving the defense and then connecting deep with his receiver on rainbow-like deep throws with good touch. Corral shows solid tempo when getting through his progre sions in a normal drop back scenario and is very willing to take his checkdown, improving on his decision making from 2020 and not forcing throws. While Ole Mi s doesnt do it too often, Corral has also shown he can execute bootleg concepts well as he is very quick at working through his progre sions and very accurate while on the run. In addition, Ole Mi s is very aggre sive on 4th downs and Corral has great situational awarene s of what throws he can/cannot make to get the first. Corral exudes competitive toughne s as he is willing to stand tall in the pocket and deliver a strike while taking a hit, not compromising his mechanics. Furthermore, he is a fearle s runner who has good agility and elusivene s, plus runs with tenacity and physicality to ensure he earns every yard available.Corral has some minor i sues in his game that are coachable and can take his play to the next level. Firstly, he could improve his ball placement to be more consistent and maximize yards-after-the-catch. This stems from his footwork being heel-clicky which makes it difficult to have great placement consistently. This i sue also hurts Corrals deep ball velocity and accuracy – occasionally he will underthrow his receiver and place the ball a few inches too far inside. Blank Jersey In addition, Corral loves to rainbow his deep pa ses and needs to improve on when to use velocity rather than touch. Another aspect that has plagued Corral a bit is his occasional lack of feel for pre sure from his blindside, leading to some devastating sacks. Finally, when moving onto his checkdown or schemed throws that should be open based on the concept (rub routes for example), Corral doesnt always check his work to see how close the defender actually is.Matt Corral exudes competitive toughne s as he stands tall in the pocket, is clutch on 3rd and 4th downs, plus is a fearle s and physical runner. He can excel in a multitude of schemes, showing proficiency in the RPO+screen game, play-action vertical concepts, bootlegs and standard timing-based dropbacks. He has great but not elite arm strength and has tremendous pocket maneuverability while keeping his eyes downfield. Corral could have succe s early on if there is talent on his offense but would benefit most from sitting behind a veteran until he gets comfortable with the offense. Over time, he can be a franchise quarterback and Pro Bowl talent.Scroll to ContinueMatt Corral attended Oaks Christian and Long Beach Poly in California where C.D. Pelham Jersey he accounted for over 11,000 yards and 123 TDs as a four-year starter. As a senior at Long Beach Poly he threw for 2,495 yards and 29 touchdowns. Corral was a U.S. Army All-America selection and rated 247Sports ranked him as a 4-Star recruit, the 63rd-best recruit nationally, the 4th-ranked pro-style quarterback recruit in the country and the 9th recruit in the state of California. Corral committed to Ole Mi s and in 2018, he appeared in four games and was redshirted. In 2019, Corral made four starts and led the team with 1,362 pa sing yards and six touchdowns to three interceptions. He had a 59% completion rate and averaged 136 pa sing yards per game. In 2020, Corral started all 10 games and took a huge jump, completing 70% of his pa ses for 3,337 yards and 29 touchdowns. His great play was overshadowed in the media by two ugly games where he threw six interceptions vs Arkansas and five interceptions vs LSU. In 2021, Corral has played like the top quarterback in the nation through seven weeks, tallying 1,913 yards on 67% completion percentage and drastically improving his touchdown-to-interception ratio with 15:1. Corral is lauded for his off-field qualities such as his leadership and ability to connect with others, an extremely important trait for the quarterback position. Ole Mi s head coach, Lane Kiffin, says of Corral, Matt has done an unbelievable job, the way he played last week…if youre around this kid, he is a special person, kid, leader. I just love being around him. Furthermore, when adversity has struck, Corral has risen to the occasion. In their matchup vs Tenne see this year, after injuring his ankle and returning to the game, there was a delay because fans threw trash onto the field. This surprise couldve sucked the momentum out of Ole Mi s, but Corral rallied the troops by getting them focused, „(Just) keeping the main thing the main thing. You started to hear a little chatter, and then just talk about random stuff, what they were doing after the game, and that kind of set me off. So I brought them back, and then we just started warming up.“ In addition, Corral attributes his growth over his tenure at Ole Mi s to his work ethic and a specific example is how he organized 5:30 a.m. meetings (before team practice) for the QB group, going over tape of themselves and opponents. Finally, an underrated storyline of Corrals succe s in 2021 has been the adversity he has faced on the field, with multiple injuries to key players on offense. The Rebels have mi sed two of their starting Delino DeShields Jersey receivers, the top two tight ends on their depth chart and have had multiple injuries to their offensive line, leading Kiffin to praise Corrals ability to elevate the team, Hes doing more on his own, carrying the team on his own.7.6 / 8.8I rem

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in an interesting situation at the beginning of the 2022 offseason. The franchise has been hit hard by the unexpected retirements of star quarterback Tom Brady and offensive guard Ali Marpet. There are two ways this team can go from here, retool and continue trying to compete or go into rebuilding mode.Knowing head coach Bruce Arians, the Buccaneers aren’t going to just throw the towel in next year. While speaking Jake Smolinski Jersey at the NFL Combine earlier this week, Arians noted that Tampa Bay is hoping to have three veterans return to the roster. He said that outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh have informed him Jose Alvarado Jersey that they still want to play and won’t be retiring.Tight end Rob Gronkowski, who some have pegged as a retirement candidate after Brady’s decision, has been working out at the team facility twice a week according to Arians. That doesn’t sound like someone who is set on stepping away from football.All three players had their contracts expire at the end of the 2021 season. Though it’s safe to say that JPP and Suh will be very interested in re-signing with the Buccaneers. Both defensive veterans have been in Tampa Bay since 2019. Suh has been a key cog on the defense, playing in all 49 regular-season games and six playoffs since he joined the franchise. He totaled 27 tackles, seven tackles for lo s, and six sacks last season.Scroll to ContinueJPP was labored by a torn rotator cuff throughout the season but elected to play through the injury. He recorded 31 tackles, three tackles for lo s, 2.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and four pa s deflections. His presence Kevin Kiermaier Jersey on the field is valuable and he brings even more leadership off of the field.Tampa Bay only has two tight ends under contract at the moment for next year, Cameron Brate and Codey McElroy. That makes retaining Gronkowski a priority for the team as long as he continues to go forward with his career. Despite mi sing four games and the majority of another with Jesus Aguilar Jersey rib and back injuries, Tom Brady’s favorite target was even more productive in 2021. Gronkowski caught 55 pa ses for 802 yards and six touchdowns.Stick with BucsGameday for coverage on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers throughout the offseason. Follow BucsGameday on and

The Cleveland Browns traded for quarterback Deshaun Watson last week, but he yet to be at the team’s facility due to ongoing depositions in Houston. According to a report from Brad Stainbrook of the Orange and Brown Report, Watson could be in Cleveland Thursday.Unle s Watson has undergone a physical in Texas, he will have to do that in Cleveland. He Eugenio Suarez Jersey also will do some meet and greet type stuff, take a tour of Derek Dietrich Jersey the facility, do some photo opportunities as the team prepares to hype up its new addition.Presumably, that would mean that Watson would have his introductory pre s conference on Friday. More than likely, Watson would be in town those two days before returning to Texas this weekend. He may have ongoing legal responsibilities, but there are also any number of real life decisions he will have to sort out before he returns to Berea.Given the Adam Duvall Jersey controversy involved in the acquisition of Watson, the pre s conferences are a highly anticipated event. This would be the first time that ownership, including Dee and Jimmy Haslam, general manager Andrew Berry and head coach Kevin Stefanski will answer questions about the decision to trade for Watson.Scroll to ContinueFor Watson, he hasn’t answered questions in over a year. Not only will there be questions about his legal circumstances and the accusations he’s facing, but Watson has never explained why he demanded a trade and was unwilling to play for the Houston Texans. There are plenty of people who would like some closure on that Cincinnati Reds Jersey front.

One of Nathaniel Hackett’s boldest early moves as head coach of the Denver Broncos has been converting inside linebacker Baron Browning into a full-time edge rusher.It takes a rare mix of speed and athleticism to come off the edge, so when Hackett looked at Browning’s film, the youngsters ma sive potential as a pa s rusher immediately leaped out at him. The head coach explained it after Friday’s practice.Just kind of evaluating him when we were in the offseason seeing Jorge Soler Jersey his body type and just watching some of his bend and how he plays, Hackett said from UCHealth Training Center. In this league, its about getting to the quarterback, first and foremost. You can never have too many rushers.The luxury of having several explosive pa s rushers is a coachs dream. And in the AFC West, it’s an absolute nece sity due to the division’s collection of elite quarterbacks.That may well have forced Hackett’s hand in the end, but he called Browning’s edge-rusher acumen „unbelievable,“as he gushed over what the 23-years-old’s ceiling might be.I think we wanted to see what it looked like when he was down there, Hackett said. We had tape of him at inside linebacker, and we were like, Hey, lets give it a shot and see what happens. I think for us, watching him play that position has been definitely even better than we thought. We kind of had a feeling that he might be good there, but it Justin Grimm Jersey s his ability to bend, his ability to anchor, and just being able to shut that edge off. He had a couple of moves early when we first got pads onsome up-and-under moves that were just unbelievable.Coach Hackett isn’t the only one at Broncos HQ gushing over Browning’s pa s-rushing propensity. Earlier this year, the team’s No. 1 pa s rusher praised Browning’s natural gifts.Its crazy when it comes to Baron,“ . „The natural skills he has for the position its amazing. Youll see him out there and he just throws his shoulder down. To him, it feels like hes doing just that, but on film, it looks like the craziest thing ever.Scroll to ContinueThe Broncos seem to be delighted with how the Browning project is developing, but many challenges still remain, not the least of which is filling the Adalberto Mondesi Jersey hole his position transfer created at inside linebacker. There is no arguing that Browning’s move hurts the inside linebacker unit. It did.Before the switch, Denver’s inside linebacker corps already had question marks. Josey Jewells timely return to action will certainly ease any misgivings about the Browning switch that Hackett might still harbor.That being said, the Broncos may continue to look for another veteran body, especially after long-time Minnesota Vikings tackling machine Anthony Barr opted to sign with the Dallas Cowboys rather than Denver.It would appear that Hackett is committed to Brownings positional switch, which is firmly rooted in the coach’s belief that it suits the player better and will yield more results for the Broncos defense. The proof will Trevor Cahill Jersey be revealed in the pudding when Browning matches up against opposing blockers in live-bullet game conditions starting next week when preseason Game 1 rolls around. But Hackett feels that the Broncos are already well on the way to justifying the sudden position switch of the multi-talented linebacker.Watching his progre s shows us that our natural instincts were right , Hackett said. We didnt knowyou never really know. It was kind of an experiment. I think hes really embraced it and likes it, too. Its fun to see him out there .

Ohio State with a 45-31 victory over Minnesota at Huntington Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Thursday.Regardle s of who won the game, however, one thing is certain: No one was happy with Big Ten officials by the end of the contest. They made rough calls all game, with the most notable example coming in the fourth quarter. Minnesota was attempting to overcome a 14-point Buckeyes lead with roughly four minutes remaining when Golden Gophers quarterback Tanner Morgan threw a 20-yard strike to Mike Brown-Stephens, who then took a hit from Ohio State defensive back Lathan Ransom.The tackle aimed at Brown-Stephens Trevor Williams Jersey ‚ head and neck area not only lodged the ball loose, but also left the receiver down on the turf, seemingly concu sed from the collision with Ransom. Officials called Brown-Stephens down by contact, then reviewed the play while trainers tended to the downed receiver. When they came back from review, they revealed they weren’t reviewing the play for targeting, but whether Brown-Stephens fumbled. They ruled he had, giving Ohio State the ball on a recovery and ending any chance Minnesota had of a comeback.MORE: The play in question, Mitch Keller Jersey from two angles:Yikes that’s bad CJ Fogler #BlackLivesMatter (@cjzero) Is this targeting or a clean hit Yahoo Sportsbook (@YahooSportsbook) It seems as if officials mi sed a fairly obvious targeting call, which was only made worse by the fact they reviewed the play to determine whether Brown-Stephens fumbled.That wasn’t the only unpopular ruling Thursday. Officials reversed a targeting call against Ohio State linebacker Blank Jersey Teradja Mitchell in the first quarterbut later called a questionable against the Buckeyes‘ Dallas Gant. Regardle s, Twitter was incredulous at the officials following their ruling on the Brown-Stephens play:No one knows what targeting is. You think you do. But you can never fully grasp it.

It’s the day after in the NFL, the day after every team made their last round of moves to get down to the 53-player limit, and now it’s about roster adjusting for the Miami Dolphins and their counterparts.Based on recent history, going back 10 years, the expectation is that the Dolphins will claim one or two players off waivers and then have to make a corresponding move to create space, whether it be putting someone on injured reserve or releasing them.Defensive back Elijah Campbell, who made the Dolphins 53-man roster Tuesday, joined the team this way last year when he was claimed off waivers from the New York Jets on the day after the final roster cuts and took the place of another DB, Jamal Perry. Blank Jersey The Dolphins have claimed at least one player off waivers (or signed a veteran) on this day each of the past 10 years with the exception of 2020, but Abraham Almonte Jersey that wasn’t a normal year because of COVID and the absence of an offseason program or a preseason.The Dolphins high for waiver claims on the day after the final cuts in these past 10 years as five in 2019 and four in 2012 though none of the players claimed in either case made a major impact for the Dolphins.THE CRAZIEST DOLPHINS DAY-AFTERBut that 2019 day-after-the-cuts was wild for the Dolphins, not just because of the high number of waivers claims during the team’s ma sive roster rebuilding, but also because of two trades that became official on that day.Scroll to ContinueAnd the big one, of course, was the ma sive deal that sent tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills to Houston for two players and a several draft picks.And then there was the trade of linebackers, with the Dolphins acquiring Vince Biegel from the New Orleans Saints for Kiko Alonso.The five players Brandon Guyer Jersey claimed were Trent Harris, Deon Lacey, Avery Mo s, Steven Parker and Ken Webster, who took the place of Montre Hartage, Terrill Hanks, Adolphus Washington, Zach Sterup and Chris Myarick.So one day after getting down to 53 players, the Dolphins had swapped eight of them 15 percent of the active roster.NOTABLES CLAIMED BY THE DOLPHINS ON THE DAY-AFTEROne thing about waiver claim is they don’t often involve notable players, for one thing because vested veterans (four years of NFL experience or more) are exempt from waivers.In those past 10 years, perhaps the most noteworthy waiver claim the Dolphins made the day after final cuts was Cody Parkey, who was picked up to replace incumbent kicker Andrew Franks in 2017 and proceeded to tie a franchise record for field goal accuracy in a season by going 21-for Jim Thome Jersey -23.Another notable name claimed by the Dolphins was Logan Thomas, now a starting tight end for Washington, except that when Miami got him in 2015 he still was trying to make an NFL career as a quarterback.Overall, though, the 22 players the Dolphins put on their 53-man roster the day after final cuts over the past 10 years, made very little impact during their time in Miami, though Parker did have a big interception during a victory at Indianapolis in that strange 2019 season.

With e sentially only one tight end, Dawson Knox, in 2021, the Buffalo Bills‘ offensive juggernaut was basically unstoppable by the end of the season.Now picture adding 6-foot-6, 265-pound tight end Rob Gronkowski into the mix with Knox, a running back and a wide receiver or in a spread alignment featuring an empty backfield in which the likes of Gronkowski, Knox and wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Rollie Fingers Jersey Gabriel Davis are ready to fire with one of the league’s preeminent running threats at quarterback, Josh Allen, in the shotgun, ready to pull the trigger.Or take off and run.Rest a sured, general manager Brandon Beane and the coaching staff have thought it about it too, along with hundreds of thousands of others.Proof? , to land the Hall of Fame-bound Gronkowski, who grew up a Bills fan and is headed for unrestricted free agency again.And why not?A sensible, below-market, short-term deal, po sibly for as little as one year, that provides some injury protection might make sense for a team Walt Weiss Jersey that believes it can contend for a championship again but will need to be stronger in 2022.The long-time New England Patriot who followed quarterback Tom Brady to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by coming out of retirement for another Joe Morgan Jersey Super Bowl ring in 2020, may want to hook up with another elite quarterback now that Brady has retired (at least for now). Though certainly no slam-dunk because of his age Gronkowski will turn 33 in May and extensive injury history, there is no disputing what kind of dimension a huge tight end who’s averaged 15.0 yards per reception and caught 92 touchdown pa ses in 143 regular-season games can bring.The Bills reportedly made a run at Gronk last year as well, losing out to the Bucs, who re-signed him to a second one-year deal.To be clear, Gronkowksi would almost certainly need to take le s than the highest bidder would offer. But if he’s just Khris Davis Jersey in it for the rings at this point, the Bills might make the most sense.Gronkowski may remain frustrated that he’s not eligible, even as a paid spokesman,for USAA’s low auto insurance rates because he’s not a military member. But becoming a soldier of fortune for the Bills may provide some kind of satisfying consolation.Just some food for thought.Scroll to ContinueHere are the projected odds from Bookie.com:

College football schedule Week 13 What g

It’s been quite the offseason for the Arizona Cardinals.After the team again crashed and burned at the end of the season, questions surrounded the entire team from top to bottom.So much promise was held for the Cardinals after a strong start to 2021, with many believing they could have been a Super Bowl team.Count owner Michael Bidwill in that group, as he joined on Friday and spoke about the team’s unfortunate ending.“Well this year certainly, you look at the beginning of the season, starting 7-0 (and) 10-2, being in a position where everything was going great and then DeAndre Hopkins unfortunately gets injured. And things started to really become a little more challenged at that point. But I’m certainly more optimistic about where we’re going and the direction we’re going. Much more optimistic, I should say, and excited about Don Mattingly Jersey our future,“ said Bidwill.Much of the heat was directed at head coach Kliff Kingsbury for the team’s poor finish. Kingsbury, who just finished his third season with the team, was credited by Bidwill in helping turn the tide of the franchise around in such a short time period.He said, „I know people focus on the finish. But we’ve already talked about the factors that contributed to that. And I look at the college coaches who have made the transition from college to the pros. And you know, the ones that are succe sful, and Kliff is, I feel like had an adjustment period.“He’s had a few years to adjust. And I feel like he’s just going to get better and better because he understands the pro rules and the pro game and the pro speed and everything else, much better than he did a couple of years ago.“A key part of Arizona’s strong start was the play of linebacker Chandler Jones, who is set to hit free agency in mid-March. Jones‘ future with the Cardinals has been one of many major story lines to develop as free agency draws closer.“I can tell you we love Chandler and would love to have him back,“ Bidwill said. „The devil’s in the details, I’ll leave that up to Steve (general manager Steve Keim) and Randy Johnson Jersey Chandler’s representatives to work on. But we love Chandler (and) what he’s done for us in the past and hopefully in the future as well.“While Jones will be playing football in 2022, the status of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is believed to be sealed after not playing in 2021 despite no official retirement from the pa s-catcher.Scroll to ContinueWhen asked about Fitzgerald, Bidwill made it very clear his legacy will live on properly.He said, „There’s no question that he’s going into our Ring of Honor, there’s no question that he’s going to be a first-ballot Pro Football Hall of Famer, and there’s no question that he’s going to continue to be a great Arizona leader, beacon of light and community champion.““I’m so grateful that he’s helping out with the Super Bowl, and he’s done such a wonderful job. We all know Larry did such a great job on the field, in the locker room and off the field as a Cardinal but it’s great to see him a part of the community and stay here and be a part of the great things that we’re going to do in the future.“A major point of focus was Arizona’s poor record at home, as the Cardinals were 3-5 at State Farm Stadium and lost the final five home games.Teams in the league are supposed to be at an advantage when defending home turf, and Bidwill confe sed that’s a point that will be driven home to every member of the organization.“NFL teams have to win at home,“ he said. „And so, we’re still answering those questions. I’m sure that we’re going to continue to be focused on it and and studying it as we go into the offseason. It’ll be a discu sion with Gleyber Torres Jersey our players too, because ultimately, it’s about how we’re playing at home. So I’m excited to get the team back in the building for the the offseason program and really to get focused on that.““We brought a lot of leadership (in last year), Steve has done a great job. You know, the signing of J.J. Watt, the trade for Zach (Ertz), the trade for DeAndre Hopkins, the trade for Rodney Hudson. We brought a lot of great leadership and he’s brought a lot of great leadership. And we’re going to be leaning on those folks I’m certain as we go forward, and those are gonna be questions that will be answered in the offseason. But we got to get the guys back in the building because they’re part of the equation and we want their input.“ The focus now shifts to winning a Super Bowl in 2022, when the Cardinals will also play host to the big game at State Farm Stadium Drew Hutchison Jersey . Bidwill said he’s very aware the last two winners of the Super Bowl have also hosted, hoping he can push that streak to three.“Well, it’s a great honor to have it back for a third time at State Farm Stadium and a fourth time here in Arizona,“ the owner said. „It’s going to give us another opportunity to showcase our great state and our great community to the world. It does not go unnoticed to me that the two prior sites, the local team won the Super Bowl and certainly I’ve emphasized that in my conversations with everyone and it would be great to be able to hoist the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in front of our home town and so it’s gonna be great.“Jay Perry and her team with the Super Bowl host committee are doing a fantastic job getting ready for it. And they started during the pandemic. So it’s not been the easiest thing to plan. But now that it looks like those clouds of the pandemic are clearing a little bit, she’s off and running and I couldn’t be more excited about what this game is going to do for Arizona. Last time around it was a $720 million economic impact for the Valley. State Farm Stadium has certainly been an economic engine. We’ve put $150 million worth of investments into State Farm Stadium and our properties around it.“As you know, we’re developing right now, the BetMGM Sportsbook on the Great Lawn; we’ve developed a fan pavilion out there. I think those are going to be key pieces, as well as some of the other upgrades that we’ve done to State Farm Stadium.“

Bidwill Supports Kingsbury Moving Forwar

Texas Tech redshirt freshman defensive lineman John Scott III has been released from thehospital in Lubbock, Texas,a week after being shot, the school confirmed over the weekend.“Thank you to all who have kept him in their thoughts this past week,“ the Red Jeff Keppinger Jersey Raiders football program said in the tweet announcing Scott’s release from University Medical Center.We’re pleased to inform you John Scott III has been released from UMC.Thank you to all who have kept him in their thoughts this past week. Texas Tech Football (@TexasTechFB) Suspect Asia Devine Jackson, 24, surrendered to Lubbock police the morning Adam Engel Jersey of April 28after being accused of shooting thedefensive lineman and another person early in the evening of April 27, .Police confirmed that Scott was seriously injured in the shooting, Danny Mendick Jersey and the school confirmed that he spent time in the intensive care unit with undisclosed injuries. Afemale, Kiana Pipkins, 19,suffered minor injuries. The shooting occurred at around 6:10 p.m. CT at a student apartment complex near campus as about 200 people were in and around the swimming pool, police said, though they have yet to say what led to the dispute and shooting.Scott is a 6-3, 275-pound rising redshirt freshman out of Hitchcock, Texas. He was a three-star prospect in the Carlos Rodon Jersey recruiting cla s of 2018, according to 247Sports, and did not play in his first year with the program. Related Articles

What stood out in terms of play counts in the Miami Dolphins‘ 15-13 lo s against the Las Vegas Raiders in their preseason home opener included the usage of quarterbacks because it’s always about the quarterback another heavy work load for tight end Mike Gesicki, and most of the defensive starters getting some action after sitting the previous week.The Dolphins‘ list of DNP (Did Not Play) players featured 14 names, down from a total of 23 against Tampa Bay.Those who not only played but started against the Raiders after sitting out the preseason opener included QB Tua Tagovailoa, RB Chase Edmonds, C Connor Williams, DT Zach Sieler, DE Christian Wilkins, LB Jerome Baker, LB Elandon Roberts and S Jevon Holland.With that established, let’s dive into the snap count observations:– With Terron Armstead kept out of the game and Greg Little, who’s the second-team right tackle Cameron Maybin Jersey on the depth chart, the Dolphins again gave a long look to second-year tackle Larnel Coleman. A very long look. As is, Coleman played all 57 offensive snaps at left tackle. That’s significant, particularly when you consider that rookie free agent tackle Blaine Andries was dre sed but did not play.– As mentioned above, Williams made his preseason debut at center and played 15 snaps, the same number as the other projected starting offensive linemen who played Austin Jackson, Robert Hunt and Liam Eichenberg. It’s worth noting that in those 15 plays, Williams had a couple of high shotgun snaps.– Among the quarterbacks, it was veteran backup Teddy Bridgewater who got the most extensive action, which made sense after he joined Tagovailoa on the DNP list against Tampa Bay. Bridgewater played 29 snaps against the Raiders, as opposed to 15 to rookie seventh-round pick Skylar Thompson and 13 for Tagovailoa. Being that Thompson played the entire game against Tampa Bay, it made sense Andrelton Simmons Jersey to give Bridgewater a little more work, while still giving Thompson a look against the Raiders.Scroll to Continue– At running back, the one figure that jumped out was Sony Michel played eight snaps, the lowest for those who played. Michel had two carries that gained 0 yards after the Dolphins had a second-on-1 in Tua’s second drive at quarterback. The snaps at running back were pretty evenly spread out, with Myles Gaskin getting the most with 17.– With Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle both sitting out the game, it’s interesting to note that Erik Ezukanma and Braylon Sanders got the most snap at wide receiver with 31 and 29, about a dozen than on-the-bubble veterans Preston Williams and Lynn Bowden Jr. It’s also noteworthy that Ezukanma had a huge fourth quarter playing with Thompson when he had five of his six catches on the night.– And we close out the offense with the tight ends, where we once again have to mention Mike Gesicki and his team-leading 25 snaps at the position, which makes sense in a way because he’s learning a new offense but is still very strange given the Julio Teheran Jersey fact he’s an established player in this league.I need it,“ Gesicki told the media after the game. „I need all the reps I can get. I mean, I played receiver last year, Ive played receiver the past three or four years. Im playing tight end now and any reps I can get live, out there blocking, putting my hands on another guy and going out there, working hard and blocking; honestly just working on my footwork and my hand placement, all that kind of stuff. Any reps I can get at that, I can use it.– With the players making their preseason debut, the only three projected starters who were kept out were Byron Jones (on PUP), Xavien Howard and late scratch Melvin Ingram. That makes it eight starters were in action, which makes the Raiders‘ opening drive for a touchdown all the more disappointing considering they didn’t use QB Derek Carr, RB Josh Jacobs, WR Davante Adams or TE Darren Waller in the game.– The heaviest work load on defense went to cornerback Kader Kohou, who continues Blank Jersey to flash as a rookie free agent out of Division II Texas A&M-Commerce.– Veteran newcomer Mackensie Alexander played 24 snaps on defense, though he left the game at one point with what appeared to be a minor leg injury.– Former first-round pick Noah Igbinoghene, who had another rough night in coverage, played 19 snaps on defense but more importantly 10 snaps on special teams, which is where he might end up making his biggest contribution again in 2022.– Rookie third-round pick Channing Tindall had a pretty quiet night, though he again got a solid work load, with 25 snaps on defense and seven on special teams.– Among the team’s projected starters (based on the depth chart), the highest snap count on defense was 18 for Jerome Baker, Jevon Holland, Jaelan Phillips and Brandon Jones. On the flip side, Elandon Roberts had the lowest with 8, followed by Emmanuel Ogbah with 10.

Its safe to say the Denver Broncos‘ blockbuster trade to acquire quarterback Ru sell Jeurys Familia Jersey Wilson has set off major shockwaves through the NFL. GM George Paton has achieved the basecamp of making the Broncos a contender once again, at least on paper, but how the team’s players transfer that momentum into wins on the field will boil down to dedication. Broncos wideout Courtland Sutton dished on the impact Wilson’s sudden arrival has had on the pa s-catching unit. Wilson quickly established a group chat with his new receivers to get wheels in motion.Sutton had just touched down on the tarmac from taking a flight when his phone lit up, as he told the As soon as I landed my phone my phone was going off and it was Jerry Jeudy , Tim Patrick , KJ Hamler, and Ru s Wilson , and everyone was just in there talking, Sutton said. You know it was really cool to be able to hear, first moments, just him talking about already like, Hey man Im trying to get to work, Im trying to do this.‘ To hear that already, so early into this proce s and our first time Jacob DeGrom Jersey being able to talk to him, it sets the tempo for our entire team. Everybody understands the time that everybody is on and where we are trying to get to its exciting for sure.When doing his own due diligence over whether or not to waive his no-trade clause with the Seattle Seahawks, Wilson almost certainly studied Denver’s depth of talent in the receiving room and its no stretch to believe he liked what he saw. That being said, establishing the right type of chemistry goes far beyond just plugging in the new quarterback and soaring off to the Super Bowl.Scroll to ContinueIts going to take Jay Bruce Jersey some time on task to establish chemistry and get things fine-tuned. Wilson, Sutton, and the Broncos receiving corps are already trying to work out a schedule to get some throwing reps under their belt.Man, its crazy that you say that, Sutton enthused. You know we have been in talks already trying to figure out a way to get all the guys in one spot. And even just sit down and talk ball a little bit. Just get to know each other. Get to run the basic routes, to get that timing, get that feel down. As you know, being able to get in as many reps as you po sibly can is important. Getting a brand new quarterback, brand new offense, all the reps that we can get is going to be huge. We have already been talking about trying to get something going, being able to put some work in before OTAs roll around, and even then stacking on top of that as well.Broncos fans will remember the extent to which Peyton Manning upped the ante and created a whole new culture of profe sionalism when he arrived in the Mile High City. Wilson appears to be activating Manning Mookie Wilson Jersey ‚s same game plan with similar the same winning expectations firmly in mind.

The Deshaun Watson Timeline

GREEN BAY, Wis. Last season, Jordan Love had as many turnovers as Aaron Rodgers despite playing 852 fewer snaps.Getting the start in the Green Bay Packers preseason opener on Friday night at the San Francisco 49ers, Love threw three interceptions in the first half. Those were the big plays in a 28-21 lo s. Green Bay took a 21-20 lead early in the fourth quarter on No. 3 quarterback Danny Etlings 22-yard touchdown pa s to second-year receiver Amari Rodgers. Rodgers caught a quick pa s into the flat, avoided one defender at the 20 and stayed on his feet and inbounds after being hit by Willie McGee Jersey safety Taylor Hawkins at the 4. Dexter Williams, in his first carry in his second tour with Green Bay, turned a 5-yard run into a gain of 25 to kick-start the drive.San Francisco answered. Brock Purdys touchdown pa s to tight end Tanner Hudson put the Niners on top, and Purdys completion to KeeSean Johnson tacked on two points to make it 28-21 with 7:58 remaining.Green Bay couldnt answer, with the 49ers stuffing a fourth-and-1 sneak by Etling. San Francisco drained the rest of the clock.The turnovers werent all Loves fault but he wasnt without blame, either. His first interception was a bit high and whistled through the hands of tight end Tyler Davis. While not pinpoint perfect, it should have been caught. One play later, the 49ers were in the end zone with a 10-7 lead.The second interception should have been a relatively easily pitch-and-catch on third down but instead was thrown high and behind rookie receiver Romeo Doubs. Doubs almost made a spectacular catch but lost the ball on the way to the turf. The third didnt have a prayer of getting to receiver Amari Rodgers on third down. The Green Bay defense gave only a field goal following those two Adolis Garcia Jersey giveaways.Scroll to ContinueThose are three unfortunate interceptions, coach Matt LaFleur said during a halftime interview with the Packers TV Network. We had basically two drops and, on the other one, we had two receivers run the wrong routes. So, I thought there was a lot of good. He moved the ball, he pushed the ball down the field.Yeah, sure, there were a couple throws hes like to have back, Blank Jersey but I thought all in all, it was a solid day. I loved his command and his poise in the pocket.The Packers took a 7-3 lead on a 33-yard touchdown pa s to Romeo Doubs. On fourth-and-2, the 49ers blitzed, right guard Jake Hanson and right tackle Royce Newman picked it up, and Love threw a strike to the rookie receiver.The 49ers raced to a 17-7 lead on a pair of big plays a 76-yard touchdown catch by Danny Gray, one of the fastest players at this years Scouting Combine, and a 39-yard touchdown catch by Ray-Ray McCloud, when cornerback Rico Gafford stumbled to the turf.Loves three interceptions came in consecutive series and all on San Edmundo Sosa Jersey Franciscos end of the field. That dubious streak ended just before halftime when Loves back-shoulder throw turned into a 33-yard touchdown to former Wisconsin receiver Danny Davis.That was a great play by Jordan and Danny, LaFleur said. Danny made the adjustment, made a great run after the catch. Hes a guy, hes kind of una suming, but hes always there making play after play after play. He certainly doesnt lack confidence, either.The stats were the equivalent of empty calories. The Packers outgained the 49ers 437-328 but the three giveaways were killer. On top of that, on his first series, Etling pushed the ball inside the 49ers 10-yard line but Gabe Brkic mi sed a chip-shot field goal.A big week awaits. The Packers will host the New Orleans Saints for joint practices on Tuesday and Wednesday before they play next Friday night at Lambeau Field. Those practices against the Saints will be the final two practices open to fans.

Love Throws Three Interceptions as Packe

DALLAS Lets state it, once and for all, and unequivocally: Texas, for all intents and purposes, Austin Slater Jersey is back.And coach Tom Herman even after beating rival Oklahoma 48-45 on a late field goal Saturday at the Cotton Bowl couldn’tcare le s.MORE: „It’s irrelevant to us, I think. That’s probably the best way to put it,“ Herman said after the Longhorns overcame a fourth-quarter collapse with Sam Ehlinger’s clutch drive and Cameron Dicker’s clutch 40-yard kick with nine seconds to play.“We’re not so concerned with where people think Texas is,“ Herman said. „We’re concerned about where we the coaches and players are the people whose opinions matter most to us. Like any family, those are the people we have to answer to on a daily basis with our work ethic, with our determination, with our sacrifice.“The 19th-ranked Longhorns (5-1, 3-0 Big 12) won their fifth game in a row this season and beat the seventh-ranked Sooners (5-1, 2-1) for the first time since 2015. Beyond bouncing back from the season-opening lo s at Maryland, beating Tulsa, USC, TCU and Kansas State, winning like thisin the cauldron of the Red River Rivalry marks a huge step forward for Herman, for Ehlinger, and for the entire program.Texas hasn’t won more than 10 games in a season since 2009. The Longhorns have been bad enough to get Hall of Fame coach Mack Brown retired and Charlie Strong fired. Four times since losing to Alabama in the national championship game, Texas has finished with a winning season, and four times it has finished with a losing season.Herman was hired to change all that, and after going 7-6 in his first season, maybe he has.“It would be foolish for me to not understand the big picture,“ Herman said. „We’ve taken some really big steps here the last few weeks. I’m not going to deny that. I’m not going to downplay that for these players. They have taken some very important steps in this program’s development and its progre s. But we’re going to worry about the opinions of the people in that locker room first and foremost.“MORE: Ehlinger was magnificent, throwing for 314 yards and two touchdowns and running for 72 yards and three scores. He outplayed his OU counterpart, Kyler Murray, who had Enderson Franco Jersey 304 yards and four touchdowns pa sing and 92 yards and a touchdown rushingand spearheaded the Sooners’improbable fourth-quarter rally with a 67-yard touchdown sprint.But as spectacular as Murray was, he also threw an uncharacteristic interception on the Sooners second po se sion of the game and lost a fumble midway through the third quarter. Those turnovers led to 10 Texas points. Afterward, an emotionally drained Murray it was only his second lo s as a starting quarterback since before high school could hardly describe his miscues.“Obviously, not used to losing,“ said Murray, who went 43-0 as a starter at nearby Allen High School and then went 2-1 as a Texas A&M freshman in 2015. „Hurts. Disappointed. But It’s tough because I feel I feel I turned the ball over and they didn’t. I feel you give them an advantage when you turn the ball over. I feel like if I didnt turn the ball over, we’d have a better shot at winning that game.“We felt coming in we knew this was going to be a four-quarter game and we’ve got to be better than that. We know we’re better than that. Its just tough.“The outcome underscored an astounding statistic: Since 1990, the quarterback with an extensive advantage in previous experience over his counterpart in the Red River Conner Menez Jersey Rivalry is 13-2-1. Last year, Ehlinger absorbed a lo s to Baker Mayfield. This year, heput that experience to work in leading Texas to the win.Oklahoma trailed 45-24 to start the fourth quarter, but Murray directed three consecutive touchdown drives to tie it. He threw to Lee Morris to make it 45-31 with 8:28 to go, outran the Texas defense himself to make it 45-38 with 5:11 left, and then handed to Trey Sermon three straight times to tie it with 2:38 to play.“What a college football game, huh? It was really fun,“ Herman said. „Unbelievable atmosphere. Our fans were incredible. Their fans were, too. That’s a hell of a football team. That quarterback is special.“But Ehlinger had aspecial day of his own, moving the Longhorns 52 yards into field goal range for Dicker’s game-winner.“There was zero negativity, there was zero bad body language, there was zero hanging of heads,“ Herman said. „Everybody was positive.“Ehlinger had been much maligned during his first two seasons for a lack of pure pa sing skills, but he found a certain comfort playing against Oklahoma’s defense. The Longhorns were 6 of 14 on third down, 2 for 2 on fourth down, and Ehlinger routinely zipped short slant throws to his big-bodied receivers, who plowed through and over the Oklahoma secondary.MORE: For Oklahoma, it was another all-time defensive collapse something to which Sooner Nation has become accustomed, and something that continues to put defensive coordinator Mike Stoops in their proverbial cro shair.Texas had exceeded 400 yards in just two of its first five gamesbut had surpa sed that total Saturday with a minute left in the third quarter. The Longhorns finished with a season-high 501 yards total offense, a season-high 27 first downs, a season-high 324 yards pa sing and a season-high and all-time-series-best 48 points.Oklahoma had no answers as Texas‘ offense which managed one offensive touchdown last week at Kansas State began to impose its will on the OU defense by scoring on seven of its first eight po se sions (a stretch that yielded six touchdowns) Barry Bonds Jersey . Ehlinger hit the Sooners both deep and acro s the middle.He exploited the soft edges of the defense for one first down after another. When Texas got into the red zone, it was automatic.The Sooners came into the game tied for last in the nation in red zone defense, allowing 16 scores on 16 trips; Texas added to their misery by scoring on all five trips inside the 20.“Very proud of our team’s fight there at the end,“ Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said. „To get it back to a tie game and have a great chance to win the football game says a lot about we have there in the locker room, says a lot about the culture that we have here at Oklahoma.“It wasnt our best performance. We know that. But were going to own it.“

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence scrambled on first down when Florida State’sHamsahNasirildeenclosed in and delivered a shot with the crown of his helmet a targeting call that elicited a response from the Tigers.It was the expected response.MORE: A 1-yard TD run by Yoenis Cespedes Jersey four playslater,which helped turn atwo-score lead into a 59-10 blowout, served as the Tigers‘ response. No. 2 Clemson (8-0, 5-0 ACC) won big heading into November, and it’s going to take more than a cheap shot to derail a fourth straight ACC championship run. Florida State (4-4, 2-4) found out it isn’t even in the same neighborhood. The Tigers are fun, focused and will be in a familiar spot when the first College Football Playoff rankings are unveiled Tuesday.In other words, the best bet to challenge No. 1 Alabama for a fourth consecutive season. What other conclusion could you draw at this point Mike Piazza Jersey ? Since the 27-23 escape against Syracuse on Sept. 29, the Tigers have outscored Wake Forest, N.C. State and Florida State by a combined score of163-20.Lawrence (20 of 37, 314 yards, fourtouchdowns)has settled in at starter and continues to gain valuable experience. The fact Clemson didn’t score on its first three po se sions adds more to the learning experience, and the freshman quarterback dialed in to the downfield pa sing game with favorite targets Tee Higgins, who scored twice in the first half, and Amari Rodgers, who scored twice in the second half.The running game is still fresh around Travis Etienne (10 carries, Keith Hernandez Jersey 45 yards), andLawrence and will only get better.The story, however, is the defense. Florida State had 55 total yards in the first half. They wore out quarterback Deondre Francois. The Seminoles couldn’t run, couldn’t throw, couldn’t do anything of substance. The Seminoles had 35 rushing attempts for -21 yards. This used to be the marquee showcase showdown in the ACC. Now, it’s just another stepping stone for the king of the conference. That’s the hill first-year FSU coachWillie Taggart faces going forward.MORE: That’s where that targeting call comes in. Clemson closed afterward and showed why this team is a little bit different than the ones that had lapses against Pitt in 2016 and Syracuse last season. The Tigers still face Louisville, Boston College, Duke and South Carolina the next four weeks, and the only road trip is to Chestnut Hill.The Tigers seem to Travis D’Arnaud Jersey be operating at a higher level one transfixed on No. 1 Alabama and a in their rivalry which has to date defined the Playoff era. Nobody on that team will admit it now,instead opting to focus on the one-day-at-a-time, one-game-at-a-time, coach and player speak that is nece sary.But they look like they’ve been thinking about since time expired in the 24-6 Sugar Bowl lo s on Jan. 1, 2018.That’s a response worth waiting on.

Is another incomplete performance going to be enough for Cincinnati?The No. 4 Bearcats looked well on their way to putting together a beatdown ofa seven-win East Carolina team on the road, jumping out to a 21-3 halftime lead Friday that felt as if it should be bigger.

Sure, it eventually walked away with a 35-13 win that looks good enough on paper, and perhaps the committee was waltzing through malls on Black Friday. If it was in front of TVs, however, it saw a second half that featured just 119 more yards from a Cincinnati offense that was held off the scoreboard until a tack-on touchdown with 1:44 left.

The Las Vegas Raiders are a few days away from their week one preseason matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, a team that has been dealing with a few roster problems of their own.We will dig deep into Vikings training camp and provide an update on what the Raiders could expect this Sunday.Quarterback ConcernsVikings starting quarterback Kirk Cousins was sent home Thursday morning after not feeling well in practice. He did not participate in any walkthroughs and is questionable to travel with the Roosevelt Nix Men Jersey team on Saturday.“I have not gotten much of an update but I do know he was not feeling well earlier,“ said Vikings head coach . „We have a proce s in place where we send him home and we’ll go through our proce ses internally. I’ll get an update for you guys as the week pans out on his availability for the Raiders game.“ While the illne s is still unclear, it allowed the backup Garett Bolles Jersey quarterbacks to get a few extra, well needed reps.Quarterbacks Kellen Mond and Sean Mannion took all of the reps during Thursday’s practice, and will potentially do the same until Sundays game.Mond and Mannion have struggled tremendously during training camp, which should work well for the secondary.Tight End TroubleTight end Irv Smith Jr. did not practice early in the week due to injuries and will not be expected to suit against the Raiders.Scroll to ContinueThe depth behind Smith Jr. did not look good during practice.At times, fellow tight end Johnny Mundt was being yelled at by Cousins for running the wrong routes.O-Line StrugglesThe Raiders pa s rush can benefit once again this week as they take on an Carlos Hyde Youth Jersey offensive line that continues to struggle in pa s protection.O’Connell has downplayed Garrett Bradbury’s struggles in pa s protection, saying he’s not worried. The center did receive praise about his run block ability, but without Dalvin Cook in the backfield, the Raiders shouldnt have a problem stopping the run.“Garrett Bradbury has been really good in the run game with all the different phases of how we run the football in the zone game and some of the gap stuff we do where we can hit some of those combinations differently,“ . „Hes shown a real understanding of the scheme. We do a lot of different things in the run game that sometimes looks like a lot, but as long as the center can get us dialed in and targeted the right way, everybody else Jaelan Phillips Men Jersey , all other 10 guys can be on the same page, and hes done a great job with that.The Raiders should capitalize on the Vikings depth i sues and allow some of the newer players an opportunity to make a statement of making last minute impre sions before roster cuts begin.Please make sure you tell us your thoughts when you like our Want to talk about this?

Raiders Preseason Update Minnesota Vikin

The New Orleans Saints play at the Green Bay Packers this evening in the second preseason matchup for both teams. New Orleans has been in Green Bay all week, where they faced the Packers in a series of scrimmages over two days. Don’t expect many of the starters on either side to play much, if at all. Most of the starters on both sides squared off against each other during the week. This game will be all about the backups fighting for spots on the depth chart. All NFL teams must move at least five players off their roster to get to an 80-player deadline by Tuesday. New Orleans lost their first preseason game to Houston last week. The outcome doesn’t matter, but the Saints defense looked like the far more impre sive of their two units. That trend continued this week against Green Bay. After the offense put together an impre sive opening drive against the Texans, their backups struggled. Here is what to watch from each of the New Orleans position groups tonight against the Packers. Player to WatchIan Book With starter Jameis Winston out again as a precaution for a foot injury, 34-year-old Andy Dalton will get the start. Dalton led the Saints on a 67-yard touchdown march in his only drive of the game against Houston, completing all five of his throws for 51 yards. Expect Dalton, and the other starters that play, to get a similar amount of action tonight. Second-year QB Ian Book will likely get the bulk of the snaps, with K.J. Costello perhaps getting some time in the fourth quarter. Book struggled in his 11 drives against Houston, turning the ball over three times and failing to gain a first down on David Justice Jersey four drives. Other than a few moments against Green Bay this week, Book has struggled after a solid start to camp. Hes looked disoriented against the defense and has struggled with accuracy and decision-making.Book was never going to challenge Winston or Dalton on the depth chart, but could now be on the outside looking in for a roster spot altogether. It’s po sible that the Saints may still view Ian Book as a developmental project. He has two preseason games left to show coaches that he belongs on the active roster. Players to WatchAbram Smith Tony Jones Ender Inciarte Jersey Jr.Devine Ozigbo Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram are expected to play little, if any at all. Even if Kamara doesn’t get suspended this season, the team needs a reliable complement behind him and the 32-year-old Ingram. Its a competition that is looking like it will carry through all of preseason. Smith, an undrafted rookie from Baylor, had the best outing against the Texans with 42 yards from scrimmage on eight touches. However, he also had a critical fumble in the game’s closing moments that likely cost a victory.Jones added 40 scrimmage yards, but continues to struggle with reading his blocking lanes. Ozigbo contributed 26 yards, but isn’t the between the tackles runner that Smith and Jones are.All three backs received approximately the same number of touches against Houston. They’ll likely do the same against the Packers. Smith and Jones appear to have a slight edge in performance so far, but have not separated themselves from the pack Veteran Dwayne Washington is also in the mix. Washington will be hard to displace from the roster because he’s such a valuable special teams contributor. If Smith, Jones, or Ozigbo can show that they can be consistently productive, it would allow the Saints to move Kamara around the formation more this season, where he is most dangerous. Players to WatchMarquez Callaway Dai’Jean Dixon Tre’Quan Smith Kirk Merritt Kevin White Kawaan Baker Rashid Shaheed Top receivers Michael Thomas, Chris Olave, and Jarvis Landry shined against a talented Green Bay secondary. With Winston out, it would be shocking if any of the three saw significant action tonight. Same for Deonte Harty, who probably has a fourth wideout spot clinched because of his explosive return abilities and underrated route running. New Orleans rarely keeps six wideouts on their active roster. I actually expect them to do just that this year, but it will be a developmental player who can play special teams. Undrafted rookie Dixon and Merritt have shined throughout camp. Their performance so far makes it unlikely that theyd clear waivers to be brought back to the practice squad if released. That leaves what is probably the final receiver spot to a battle between Callaway, Smith, and perhaps White. Callaway has had a quiet camp so far after leading the team in receiving yards last season. Smith dropped a touchdown against Houston and failed to get consistent separation from the Texans backup defensive backs. Callaway would seem to have the edge among the veterans because of his ability to play special teams. However, it was noteworthy that White saw reps as a special teams gunner last week. Better play from Book would help, but the wideout battle looks to be a heated competition that will go down to the final cuts.Players to WatchAdam Trautman Taysom Hill Juwan Johnson Chris Herndon Lucas Krull J.P. Holtz Nick Vannett The Saints tight ends were among the worst position groups in the entire league in 2021. Trautman has had a solid camp, but must continue to Chipper Jones Jersey show improvement as the probable starter.Scroll to ContinueHill has mi sed some time with a rib injury, but his development at a new position bears watching. Johnson added bulk this offseason and is the best pure receiver of the group. Will the Saints keep four tight ends? If they do, can disappointing veteran Vannett hold off undrafted rookie Krull and recent addition Herndon? Johnson’s spot is not written in stone, but he seems to have a big lead over Vannett, Krull, Herndon, and Holtz. Players to Watchthe second and third teamers This may be the most concerning position for the Saints right now. Their starting unit looks strong, even though James Hurst (foot) was banged up this week. First-round choice Trevor Penning may also not play after getting injured in practice. Book’s struggles and the inconsistency of the backup running backs aren’t entirely their fault. The Saints second and third string linemen were bullied around by Houston, a disturbing trend that continued against the Packers. Second-year OT Landon Young has had some nice moments, but has also been beaten badly some plays. He and Calvin Throckmorton are the strongest contenders for roster spots. However, this entire unit has done little to inspire any confidence. Derrick Kelly and Derek Schweiger were re-signed this week to provide competition. Look for them to get a lot of reps, along with Young, veteran Forrest Lamp, and undrafted rookie Lewis Kidd. Players to WatchTaco Charlton (DE)Niko Lalos (DE)Jordan Jackson (DT/DE)The Saints have one of the best defensive end crews in the league with Cam Jordan, Marcus Davenport, Payton Turner, Carl Granderson, and Tanoh Kpa sagnon.It seems unlikely that Granderson or Kpa Brandon McCarthy Jersey sagnon are on the roster bubble, despite each playing late into the game against Houston. Yet, thats

Saints vs. Packers What to Watch

Now that the Indianapolis Colts have their quarterback in Matt Ryan, their next biggest need is his blindside protector at left tackle. Or is it?The Colts re-signed offensive lineman Matt Pryor last week, who was a multi-purpose backup in 2021 but never quite Plan A at any of the five positions. That may no longer be the case going into his second season in Indianapolis.Colts general manager Chris Nick Vigil Jersey Ballard appeared on this week and mentioned that Pryor will get the first opportunity to earn the Colts‘ left tackle spot while they continue to explore their options:I’ll tell you what, one of the people that everybody kind of brushed off the signing, but Matt Pryor played really good for us this year, and I think people kind of ignored it. Even against the Raiders, when you go back and watch the Raider game, he was outstanding at left tackle. So we’ll give him the first shot at it, we’ll continue to look to add depth as we need to, and we’ll look at both free agency and the draft, but he’ll get the first shot at it.He ended up starting five or six games for us last year both at right, left, and at guard. He’s a young player, we think he’s got a lot of talent. He’s a big, strong man. And when we gave him a chance to perform, he performed really well. It’s been fun to watch him work and kind of buy into what we’re asking him to do. So, we’ll give him a shot at it. We think he’s got a lot of upside, but we’ll continue to look. Originally selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round (No. 206) of the 2018 NFL Draft out of TCU, Pryor has earned experience all acro s the offensive line for the last four years, starting 15-of-44 contests. In total, he has played 602 snaps at right guard, 520 at right tackle Kevin Huber Jersey , 172 at left tackle, 47 at left guard, and 13 at big tight end.The Colts acquired Pryor last summer in a trade with the Eagles, sending a 2022 sixth-round pick (No. 194) in exchange for Pryor and a 2022 seventh-rounder (No. 240).The original plan was for him to be the „next man up“ who could fill in Ja’Marr Chase Jersey at nearly every position, and he quickly leaned into that role.Scroll to ContinuePryor (6’7″, 332, 27 years old)appeared in all 17 games for the Colts in 2021, starting five of them. He saw action at right tackle (266 snaps), left tackle (94), right guard (69), and big tight end (9).According to , Pryor earned a career-high 76.5 grade, including a mark of 75.2 in pa s protection and a 74.8 in the run game. His overall grade ranked 24th among all NFL offensive tackles. Out of 241 pa s-blocking snaps, Pryor allowed just 8 total pre sures on the quarterback(6 hurries, 2 hits), including 0 sacks. His pa s-block efficiency rating of 98.1 was tied for the fifth-best mark in the NFL among tackles.The Colts‘ need at left tackle this offseason really began in 2021. Following the retirement of Anthony Castonzo, former Pro Bowler Eric Fisher was signed Tee Higgins Jersey in hopes to be the Colts‘ next left tackle for the foreseeable future. However, coming off of an Achilles injury suffered last January, Fisher’s performance sunk with the Colts in 2021, particularly as a pa s protector. Graded overall as one of the worst full-time offensive tackles (68.2), his pa s-block efficiency of 94.7 was even worse, ranking 52nd among 55 qualifying tackles.Now Pryor, who was able to step in admirably on nearly every occasion last season, will get a chance to steady the Colts‘ left tackle position.While some expected the Colts to swing big for a noteworthy new left tackle, the Colts felt comfortable in giving Pryor the first shot at the job while continuing to search for their options.

The likelihood of outside linebacker Chandler Jones returning to the Arizona Cardinals was minimal, as the team wasn’t willing to Andrew Ference Jersey match the price Jones likely wanted.One team eventually did, and if you’re a Cardinals fan, the drive to see Jones in his new home isn’t far.NFL Media’s Tom Peli sero reported the Las Vegas Raiders reached an agreement with Jones to make him the newest member of their team on Wednesday. The Cardinals will play the Raiders in Las Vegas during the 2022 season.In a subsequent move, the Raiders reportedly traded pa s rusher Yannick Ngakoue to the Indianapolis Colts Jean-Francois Jacques Jersey for cornerback Rock Ya-Sin.Scroll to ContinueThe question surrounding the 32-year-old linebacker was exactly how much he believed he would command in the open market after totaling 41 Nail Yakupov Jersey tackles,10.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and four pa ses defensed in 2021.Although we won’t know precise details until later, it appears Jones is satisfied with his haul.Jones spent the previous six seasons with Arizona after being drafted by the New England Patriots as Jesse Puljujarvi Jersey a first-round pick in 2012. Jones departs the Cardinals after playing 84 games where he racked up 71.5 sacks during those six years.The Cardinals now emerge as candidates to draft an outside linebacker relatively early in the 2022 NFL Draft.

You can never have too much talent on your roster, especially in the NFL where anything can happen on any given Sunday. The more loaded your roster is with talent, the better your chances of claiming the Lombardi Trophy.The Los Angeles Rams are a prime example of this, as, despite their victory in Super Bowl LVI, they retooled the roster again this offseason. They added receiver Allen Robinson to work alongside Mikkel Boedker Jersey superstar receiver Cooper Kupp.However, , he could see himself becoming a major red zone threat for Stafford.From 2018-2021, Robinson has been dangerous in the red zone for the Chicago Bears. He brought in 29 catches on 57 targets for 224 yards and 13 touchdowns, allowing Rams‘ coach Sean McVay to add another Paul Martin Jersey wrinkle to the offense this season.I think just being able to get him those targets. He can really run a bunch of different types of routes down there,“ McVay said. „You saw there was a great job. Matthew kind of working through a progre sion big, strong physical guy working acro s the back of the end zone.““You talk about big catch radius where it doesn’t even feel like he has to leave San Jose Sharks Jersey the ground to really be kind of right at that goal post.The aggre sive hands, all the things that you really want to be able to see from a receiver.“Scroll to ContinueRobinson’s ability to go get anything will suit Stafford well in the red zone, especially . Kupp was the best red zone receiver in 2021, leading the Joe Pavelski Jersey NFL with 27 receptions on 38 targets for 209 yards and 13 touchdowns.Adding Robinson to the mix will make the Rams‘ offense even deadlier, as McVay will have a field day scheming open red zone looks for him and Kupp. As they look to repeat as Super Bowl champions, po se sing multiple red zone threats will make life that much easier and their offense more potent.

Bravo, Bruins.That’s all you can say after seeing that UCLA reeled in Chip Kelly as its head coach, according to multiple reports Saturday. That helps ease the transition from the Jim Mora era, which produced succe s with back-to-back 10-win seasons, but also failure or at best mediocrity through the last three seasons of the Josh Rosen era.MORE: Kelly is a bigger hire. In fact, this is UCLA’s biggest and best hire since Terry Donahue, which lasted from 1976-95. Bob Toledo, Karl Dorrell, Rick Neuheisel and Mora generated curiosity. They also combined for five 10-win seasons since 1996. UCLA, Mikko Koivu Jersey however, hasn’t won the Pac-12 since 1998.Kelly could change that, given his track record in the conference. He had four straight seasons with double-digit wins at Oregon, on the way to a 46-7 record from 2009-12. He won big with the Ducks. He’ll win big with the Bruins, too, and it’s a winning situation for the program for so many reasons.Kelly was reportedly down to , and he picked the Bruins. That’s a perception win for the program. It doesn’t matter why Kelly picked the Bruins over the Gators or if he had the chance to pick between the two at all. The fact is Kelly chose to return to the Pac-12.That’s a win for the conference, which already has depth in the coaching ranks with Washington’s Chris Petersen and Stanford’s David Shaw who have won four of the six conference championship games the last six years. Kelly won the first in 2011; his penultimate season with the Ducks. You Ryan Suter Jersey could make the argument Kelly is the best coach in the Pac-12 now. Or you could make him prove it again.It’s a win for Kelly, who has something to prove after his departure from Oregon, which came with a show-cause penalty. Kelly bounced between two NFL stops before he realized what we knew all along: He’s a good coach regardle s of level, but he’s a great college football coach. You could make the argument he’s a top-five college coach, and UCLA landed him. That’s a steal.MORE: What about his personality? That’s overrated in this case. Kelly will fit in Los Angeles. Clay Helton fits at USC. They don’t have to be a Hollywood programs to win. UCLA might have been a little too much Hollywood under Mora. Kelly isn’t that, and Christian Folin Jersey that’s what this program needs.All you need is a quarterback, a high-flying offense and big wins. Kelly’s path in the Pac-12 South won’t be easy USC is back on top in that rivalry but the Bruins have the big-time coach now. That’s a win for this rivalry, too.We get to see Kelly return to Autzen Stadium on Nov. 3 to face his Minnesota Wild Jersey former team. That’s a win, too. Oregon is already on its second coach since Kelly left.Most of all, it’s a win for college football. Kelly should be able to recruit well out of a California-based recruiting area, and it won’t be long before the Bruins are back in the mix. Kelly’s up-tempo offense is back where itbelongs. It’s OK it’s not in the SEC.UCLA remains the biggest winner here. Itwon’t be a novelty program with Kelly. It will be a Pac-12 championship contender again, and it’s going to happen fast.Bravo, Bruins. We can’t say it enough.

Make way BYU. Coastal Carolina is coming through.The Cougars (9-1) found out the hard way on Saturday that Jamey Chadwell’s Chanticleers are more than an easy win. Coastal Carolina (10-0) won a fantastic game against BYU, punctuated by a to preserve a 22-17 upset.The win was reflected in Tuesday’s latest College Football rankings, one in which the Chanticleers and Cougars switched places: Coastal Carolina jumped from No. 18 to No. 13, taking BYU’s previous ranking, while the Cougars Rene Robert Jersey fell into the Chanticleers‘ previous spot.With the latest rankings, Coastal Carolina is the second-highest-ranked outside the Power 5 and Notre Dame. Only Cincinnati, which fell a spot to No. 8, is ranked higher from among the non-traditional powers.MORE: Below are the full top 25 rankings, straight from the Playoff selection committee:RankingTeamRecord1Alabama9-02Notre Dame10-03Clemson9-14Ohio State5-05Texas A&M7-16Florida8-17Iowa State8-28Cincinnati8-09Georgia6-210Miami8-111Oklahoma7-212Indiana6-113Coastal Carolina10-014Northwestern5-115USC4-016Iowa5-217North Carolina7-318BYU9-119Louisiana9-120Texas6-321Colorado4-022Oklahoma State6-323N.C.

The Matt Duchene Jersey season isn’t over yet, however: The Chanticleers have two games remaining against Troy (5-5) and No. 19 Louisiana (9-1) in the Sun Belt championship game; Coastal Carolina beat the Ragin‘ Cajuns 30-27 on Oct. 14 in Lafayette, La. As it stands, they could be the only 12-0 team after championship weekend.The Sun Belt has primary contractual obligations with five bowls: the Myrtle Beach Bowl; the New Orleans Bowl; the Camellia Bowl; the Cure Bowl; and the LendingTree Bowl. The Sun Belt champion Gabriel Landeskog Jersey has typically gone to play in the New Orleans Bowl, but the quick turnaround (from Dec. 19 to Dec. 23) might be too much for the Chanticleers to handle. Other options include the Camellia Bowl (Dec. 25) and Cure and LendingTree bowls (Dec. 26).If the Chanticleers can somehow jump over No. 8 Cincinnati, however, they would be the highest-ranked Group of 5 champion, earning a New Year’s Day 6 bid in the proce s.Hey, no one expected Coastal Carolina to start 10-0 this season, either.

In an ideal world, preseason will be the busiest time of the year for backup quarterbacks.With head coach ‚s philosophy of not playing starters in the preseason, backup signal caller figured to see extensive action.However, with Saturday night’s in the books, the Rams‘ preseason has come to a close, and Wolford finished it with just one appearance – the Week 2 contest against the Houston Texans.Wolford was held out of the opener as a precaution before starting and playing the first half against Houston. He had a productive outing, going 14 of 22 for 142 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.McVay called the opportunity important to help keep Jose Bautista Jersey Wolford sharp should something happen to starting quarterback . With the Bengals game providing a chance to get Wolford another handful of reps before Stafford takes over for the regular season, he appeared poised to start once again, but wound up not taking a single snap.McVay revealed why after the .“The thumb injury that he’s sustained, he was having to change and alter the way that he was delivering the ball,“ McVay Dalton Pompey Jersey said. „It’s really kind of day-to-day, because it’s not anything that’s like a ligament or a bone or anything. It’s just working through that threshold, which can be a tricky thing with your throwing hand. If it was a different situation and circumstance, he probably could’ve pushed through.“To recap, Wolford’s thumb injury shouldn’t be considered a long-term i sue, and he likely would’ve played had Saturday night’s game been a regular season meeting. However, with the preseason contest merely serving as a tune up, there was no need to force the i sue Joe Carter Jersey .Wolford’s absence created an opportunity for third-string quarterback , who played the entire game, finishing 14 of 19 for 143 yards, while adding 33 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Though his long-term status with the team is in doubt ahead of Tuesday’s roster cuts, Perkins has made a fan in McVay.Scroll to Continue“It was another good opportunity for Bryce to come out here and shine,“ McVay stre sed.“He’s a fun a guy to watch.“As things played out, Wolford had to sit back and watch Perkins as well. Los Angeles will be hoping Wolford doesn’t have to see key snaps in the regular season, as that would mean disaster for Stafford.Still, this was a valuable opportunity to get Wolford back onto the field, something McVay said was important to his development a few years ago.Wolford’s spot on the roster wasn‘ Curtis Granderson Jersey t at stake Saturday night, but there’s a chance that the snaps he mi sed could prove impactful at some point during the regular season.With Stafford at the helm and Wolford serving as his backup, Los Angeles will begin its quest to win back-to-back Super Bowl’s on Sept. 8, when the Buffalo Bills come to town for a matchup on Thursday Night Football.

Bengals Officially Sign Jessie Bates Mak

One week before he put on an all-time performance in the College Football Playoff championship game, DeVonta Smith faced a question about the lasting le son he’ll take from playing for Nick Saban.“With him, it’s how you treat people,“ Smith said on Jan. 4. „No matter how people are treating you, you always treat everyone else with respect.“Saban will be treated with reverence after leading No. 1 Alabama to a on Monday. That gave the 69-year-old coacha sixth national championship with the Crimson Tide, and seventh overall as a head coach. It also broke the record set by former Alabama coach Paul „Bear“ Bryant.MORE: Saban treats that comparison with an unmatched Alejandro Villanueva Jersey levelof respect.“I don’t think anybody really compares to Coach Bryant,“ Saban told reporters in his postgame pre s conference. „In the era that he coached; the era that he won. He won a lot of different ways. He won throwing it. He won running a wishbone. He won it running conventional offensive formations. His legacy lasted over a long, long period of time.“Sound familiar? Saban has accomplished the same feat, and those dueling legacies converged one more time with the Buckeyes as the backdrop.Jeff Rutledge remembers walking into Bryants office a week before the 1978 Sugar Bowl matchup against the Buckeyes. The Alabama quarterback planned on getting married the following weekend, but that meant an uncomfortable conversation in Bryants office. Rutledge recalls that moment with remarkable accuracy:Bryant: „Do you know who we’re playing?“Rutledge: „Yes, sir, we’re playing Ohio State.“Bryant: „Hell no, son. Were playing Woody Hayes. I’ve never played him, and you’re getting married?“Following an awkward silence, Bryant broke the tension.Bryant: „Do you love her?“Rutledge celebrated his 43rd anniversary with his wife Laura on Jan. 7, four days before Saban pa sed Bryantfor the most national championships by a head coach. Those memories came flooding back when Rutledge heard Smith talk about Saban.“I heard that, and Coach Bryant did talk about those things,“ he said. „Forget football. He would come in and talk about calling your mom and your dad. Calling your high school football coach and thanking them for raising you the way they did. It was about life. It was about that respect.“Football, of course, was the mechanism for motivation. Bryant left that conversation with a simple me sage for Rutledge.“You better play your a s off, son.“Rutledge obliged. Alabama beat Ohio State 35-6 and followed up with a national championship the next season. Bryant would win his final national title in 1979. It was his sixth in 25 seasons a bar that seemed impo sible to clear when Saban took over at Alabama in 2007.Yet Saban followed Bryant’s formula to perfection, on an accelerated pace. Saban now has six national championships in 14 seasons, and he has done that by evolving with a sport that moved from the BCS era to the four-team College Football Playoff.Alabama’s BCS championship teams were known for ground-and-pound and elite defenses. The CFP era national title teams shifted with the high-scoring, quarterback-friendly spread. Cameron Heyward Jersey Three of those national championship teams featured Heisman Trophy winners in Mark Ingram (2009), Derrick Henry (2015) and now Smith (2020), the first receiver to win the award since 1991.The 2011 national title team allowed 8.2 points per game. This year’s championship team scored 48.5 points per game.“We all have to adjust with the times,“ Saban said. „Obviously things are a little different now. The challenges are a little bit different with the spread offense, the things that make it more difficult I think to play good defense in this day and age.“ Rutledge notices another common thread between the two coaches. As a quarterback, he had more contact than most players with Bryant during his playing days.“Coach Bryant would come into our meetings every now and then, and sit, listen to whoever our coordinator was,“ Rutledge said. „He let our coaches coach. From what I see, Coach Saban does the same thing.“Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is proof of that. Sarkisian , becoming the 12th current FBS head coach to have served as an a sistant under Saban. Sarkisian, who was Joe Haden Jersey a two-time head coach at Washington and USC, first joined the Alabama staff as an analyst in 2016.“This is the greatest college football coach of all time, and recognize the space that you’re in,“ Sarkisian said. „There’s been a variety of us that have come and gone through here. But he’s a tremendous mentor, and if you allow yourself to be mentored, I think you gain even more out of this experience.“Sarkisian awarded that experience in 2020, perhaps more than any other previous a sistant. He served as acting head coach for the Iron Bowl when Saban tested positive for COVID-19. Smith, quarterback Mac Jones and running back Najee Harris all finished among the top-five vote-getters in the Heisman Trophy race.Of course, Saban has built the dynasty with five-star recruiting cla ses, but there is a twist. Smith and Harris were among the players who could have opted for the 2020 NFL Draft. After all, Alabama is a factory that has produced the most first-round picks of the last decade.Saban is active in those yearly discu sions, where he emphasizes to players the difference between first-round money and being a second-day pick. He does that out of respect for those players‘ futures.“At the same time, I always tell players, if you’re not 100 percent committed to getting better at the things that you need to improve on, then you’re not going to improve your draft status,“ Saban said. „So, it’s probably not going to do any good for you to come back.“MORE: That paid dividends for those playerswho made up Saban’s most-decorated team ever in 2020. Smith won the Biletnikoff Award. Harris won the Doak Walker Award. Center Landon Dickerson won the Rimington Trophy, and Alex Leatherwood won the Outland Trophy. Jones, a first-time starter Cameron Sutton Jersey at quarterback, won the Davey O’Brien and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm awards. Cornerback Patrick Surtain II, a Jim Thorpe Award finalist, was one of five unanimous Alabama All-Americans (Jones, a consensus selection, finished first on four of five All-America teams).Jones, like Rutledge, delivered against Ohio State: He pa sed for 464 yards and five touchdowns on Monday. Jones was asked afterward whether Saban is the greatest coach of all time.“C’mon, man,“ he responded. „Of course he is. How could he not be? He does it the right way. He recruits well, but more importantly develops great players and young men. I’m just so ble sed that he gave me a chance to come here along with all my teammates. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. He’s the greatest to ever do it.“He’ll be the greatest for a long time.“Rutledge knows how Jones feels. Rutledge still talks about the feeling after a big play when Bryant smacked his helmet with the trademarkdepth chart he clutc

The Detroit Lions‘ has performed well all throughout training camp.General manager set out to revamp the unit, beginning last season, when he invested two high picks on defensive linemen.The same occurred in 2022, as the front office invested more high draft picks to bolster one of the Jose Canseco Jersey team’s weakest units.In the Lions‘ preseason finale, without two of its starters along the defensive line, the unit held its own against the Pittsburgh Steelers.Both and Charles Harris have made plays all throughout training camp.In the first quarter, both were able to draw holding penalties by the Mark McGwire Jersey Steelers, which derailed their drive. Left tackle Dan Moore Jr. was unable to handle the bull rush of both, and was called for a pair of holding penalties.Unfortunately, Detroit quarterback Tim Boyle, who earned the start, struggled to accomplish much of anything positive.Similar to how he has performed all camp, never really established consistent rhythm, and then turned the football over.Before being pulled early in the second quarter,Boyle threw an ugly pa s right to Steelers cornerback Cameron Sutton, who then returned it to the Lions‘ 19-yard line.Scroll to ContinueDavid Blough replaced the struggling backup on the next offensive series.It was highlighted on the television broadcast that the original goal was for Boyle to play the entire first half. However, he was pulled after the offense struggled mightily.Detroit will be forced to play on defense when Terry Steinbach Jersey the second half begins. It trails the Steelers, 16-0, at halftime.NotesOn offense, Jamaal Williams and D’Andre Swift did not suit up. On defense, Michael Brockers and Alim McNeill did not play.Boyle finished the first half with a quarterback rating of 6.8.Cornerback Marcus Semien Jersey Jeff Okudah had really solid coverage against Steelers second-round pick George Pickens in the red zone.Devin Bush thwarted Detroit’s effort on fourth down early in the second quarter. On fourth-and-1, running back Justin Jackson failed to gain the first down, as Bush found his way into the backfield.Both wideout Diontae Johnson and T.J. Watt left the game with injuries for the Steelers.

The Jacksonville Jaguars officially released linebacker Myles Jack on Tuesday, ending one of the most long-standing and notable tenures in Chris Copeland Jersey recent franchise history.“Myles has made a positive contribution on and off the field in Jacksonville, providing leadership in our locker room as a captain and making a significant impact on the First Coast community,“ Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement on Tuesday.“His recognition as the teams 2021 Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee is indicative of his commitment to inspiring positive change in those around him. We appreciate all he has done for our organization and wish him the best.Scroll to ContinueThe release of Jack will save the Jaguars $8.35 million on the cap, while the team will take on $4.8 million in dead money. Jack, who was set to earn $10.5 million in 2022, was set Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Jersey to have the third-highest cap hit on the Jaguars‘ roster this season at $13.15 million.Jack, who the Jaguars traded up to No. 36 overall to select in the 2016 NFL Draft, signed a four-year, $57 million extension before the start of the 2019 season. Since then, Jack has started 40 games, collecting 292 tackles, 12 tackles for lo s, 1.5 sacks, one forced fumble, two interceptions, and nine pa s deflections.In six seasons with the Jaguars, Jack started 82 games and appeared in 88, while also starting three playoff games.

He didn’t run very well at the NFL Combine (4.65), but it was expected. He’s not a receiver that will take the top off the defense by any means. He does a lot of the dirty work and is actually pretty sound as a blocker on the perimeter.David Bell has been one of the most productive receivers in the country over the past three seasons. He came to Purdue and made an immediate impact from the moment he stepped Preston Tucker Jersey on the field. A technically-refined receiver, Bell makes all the nuances of playing the position look effortle s. His feet are silky, body movement is controlled and he is a sudden athlete in and out of breaks. His main concerns stem from his lack Evan Gattis Jersey of game-breaking, explosive speed to stretch the field vertically. Bell should continue his production in the league, being a top three target for any team he lands on.

USC is planning to end itsdisa sociation with Reggie Bush, ‚sKyle Bonagura.More, fromBonagura:The timing comes as a result of an NCAA Committee on Infractions rule, adopted in 2017, that limits any mandated disa sociation between an individual and a school to 10 years. Bush’s disa sociation which came as part of sweeping sanctions that included a two-year postseason ban, 14 vacated victories (including the 2004 BCS national championship) and the lo s of 30 scholarships began on June 10, 2010.Once the 10-year period is over, according to COI procedures, the NCAA will no longer „monitor or enforce“ the disa sociation and will give schools the freedom to decide how to proceed, whether that’s to extend the disa sociation or end it.MORE:Because ofthe sanctions, USC was forced to erase Miami Marlins Hats Bush from its university. That meant no mentions of him were allowed, no images celebrating his career could be displayed,and any record he set camewith an asterisk. While he may be gone in an official capacity, fans will forever hold on to the memories Bush created during his incredible run at USC.His 2005 season is arguably one of the best in college football history.Bush finished with2,890 all-purpose yards that season, and helped USC to a National Championship game (where theylostto Texas).Att.YardsAvg.TDRec.YardsTD20017408.716374782Bush ended up winningthe Heisman Trophy that year, but the record books won’t say that. That’s because as part of the sanctions, Bush had to return his Heisman Trophy. He’s the only player in NCAA history to do so.When Bush’sdisa sociation with USC ends, many fans feelit’s time to return his Heisman Trophy back to him as well.Reggie Bush is the best Martin Prado Jersey college football player I have ever seen.Give him back his Heisman Trophy. Adam Rank (@adamrank) Give Reggie Bush his Heisman back, best college football player of my lifetime Fitz (@FitzGSN_) Give Reggie Bush back his Heisman!

Clay Travis Giancarlo Stanton Jersey (@ClayTravis) now put the Heisman back on this mantle Mike Golic Jr (@mikegolicjr) Long overdue. Give this man his Heisman! Alex Anzalone (@AlexAnzalone47) MORE:Considering what Bush did, it’s definitely time for the powers that be to rethink this decision.Bush and his familyaccepted cash, travel expenses and a home where his parents could live rent-free for more than a year, and received$10,000 to furnish (per the investigation). Becausethe NCAA is finally , this offense seems extremely minor for the punishment.“If theres anyone to blame, its the people who came into our moms and dads houses and said they were going to protect us and keep us safe, former USC RB LenDale White . You cant be mad at a kid. Your jersey done sold 1,000 times in a single day, and you gotta borrow money from your teammates to get a dollar burger from Wendys? Look, I dont blame Reggie at all, so much as I blame the so-called higher-ups, the people who are supposed to save us at that point.Bush’s Heisman was never rei sued to another player, so it’s still acceptable to give it back to him. Bush before The Heisman Trust made its decision on whether to take it away.“While this decision is heartbreaking, I find solace in knowing that the award was made po sible by the support and love of so many,“ . „Those are gifts that can never be taken away.“In 2013, thatBush’s Heisman is just sitting in a storage unit:The Trust Miami Marlins Jersey no longer acknowledges Bush as a Heisman winner and is secretive about the trophys location.

was held out of team activities this week due to a lingering elbow i sue that However, on Thursday, clarified Stafford’s situation, describing it as an injury that is more in line with a Major League Baseball pitcher rather than an NFL quarterback.Its a little bit abnormal for a quarterback, some of this stuff is things that MLB pitchers deal with, so it is something that we Addison Reed Jersey re kind of learning about on the fly and his feedback, McVay said Thursday. Were really trying to just figure out, OK, how do we get the best plan in place to try to minimize Ervin Santana Jersey some of the things that he was having to push through, while also giving him the confidence that, Hey, I can really just, let it go, not have to worry about it, play to the best of my ability.Stafford underwent a procedure to relieve that pain following the Rams‘ 23-20 Super Bowl win over the Cincinnati Bengals in February that held him out of OTAs and minicamp this spring.And while the idea of learning about the injury ‚on the fly‘ might sound le s than ideal, the Rams are confident that their conservative approach will pay dividends in Stafford’s recovery.The goal is to try to get him to feel as good as po sible, especially when youre talking about something with that throwing elbow, and this is the plan that we feel best about Kennys Vargas Jersey , but it is something that Ive never navigated through as a coach with a quarterback. Youve had little elbow things here and there, but this is something that we want to be as smart as po sible, and its taken a big team to try Minnesota Twins Custom Jersey to do that.Scroll to ContinueThe Rams will begin preseason play on August 13 in Los Angeles against the Chargers.Until then, Stafford will likely remain limited, with his status to be updated before the preseason kicks off.

The NFL offseason is in full swing as the NFL Scouting Combine is underway.While front offices all around the country descend on Indianapolis to watch and meet over 300 draft prospects, Combine week also presents opportunities to get deals Matt Joyce Jersey in motion as the new league year is around the corner.For the Indianapolis Colts, it all begins with what they will do at the quarterback position. Since the season ended, the question on everyones mind is whether or not Carson Wentz will be back under center for the Colts in 2022.In a report from Chris Mortenson on Super Bowl Sunday, he revealed the belief that there is a good chance Wentz will be traded or released before March 19th. Wentz is already guaranteed $15 million for 2022, but March 19th is the day the rest of Wentzs $28 million salary becomes guaranteed. After general manager Chris Ballard and head coach Frank Reich failed to commit to Wentz for next season, the future in Indianapolis for the former No. 2 overall pick does not look very good.So, if the Colts decide to part ways with Wentz, who will be the starting quarterback in 2022? The QB Carousel will be in full force for Indy.The next player up in the series is San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo went 301-of-441 (68.3%) for 3,810 yards, 20 touchdowns, 12 interceptions, and a pa ser rating of 98.7 in 2021. The 49ers went 9-6 in the games Garoppolo started and made it to the NFC Championship. While Garoppolo is still under contract with the 49ers, he is expected to be traded this offseason to make room for second-year quarterback Trey Lance to take over as the starter. So, lets take a look at how Jimmy G would fit with the Colts.One of the things that jumps out immediately on film is Garoppolos quick release. You dont see him panic in the pocket often, and when he is ready to fire, it happens quickly. This helps keep the Santiago Casilla Jersey pa s rush away and allows Garoppolo to get the ball to his receivers in tight windows.Garoppolo has also shown to be an accurate thrower of the football. Whether he is standing in a clean pocket or has to make things happen when the play breaks down, Garoppolo puts the ball on the money more often than not. His accuracy is a big reason why the 49ers have consistently been one of the best teams in the NFL in yards after the catch. His ball placement allows receivers to move upfield without breaking stride.Something underrated in Garoppolos game is his ability to carry out play fakes. Garoppollo does a good job of selling the play-action fake to make defenders bite and is able to turn and use his quick release to take advantage. Its safe to say that he fits best within an offense that has a strong running game.Garoppolo has shown great toughne s throughout his career as well. While he has battled injuries in the past, he plays through pain all the time to be out there for his team. He is very respected within the 49ers locker room and is loved throughout the organization. His toughne s and leadership are some of the main reasons he has been voted a team captain for the 49ers the past three seasons.While Garoppolo can certainly make all of the throws nece sary for an NFL quarterback, he is not known for having a very strong arm. The 49ers do not throw the ball deep often, and when they do, Garoppolos lack of velocity on deep balls is noticeable. This is not too big a concern, but it can limit some of the shot plays an offense can run.Scroll to ContinueGaroppolos decision-making can certainly be questionable at times. There are moments when he tries to make a play when nothing is there, and it can get him into trouble. Whether it is trying to extend a play when he should throw it away or throwing a ball into double coverage, questionable decisions arise that probably should not for a veteran quarterback.He also seems to lock onto his receivers far too often. Garoppolo tends to telegraph where he is going with the football, allowing defenders to jump on the ball and force incompletions or interceptions. His quick release helps him get away with it at times, but it can also lead to big mistakes.His injury history cannot be ignored, either. Garoppolo has only started a full season once in five years as the starter with the 49ers. He has only played more than six games in a season twice. It was recently reported that Garoppolo had shoulder surgery and will be out until the summer, as well. Teams will have to prepare for him to mi s some games.Looking at Garoppolos strengths and weakne ses, it seems like the Colts would be Catfish Hunter Jersey in a similar situation to this year if he became the starter under center.Garoppolo is a great leader and would fit well within the Colts locker room. He is an accurate thrower of the football and tends to play at his best when paired with a strong running game, something the Colts have with Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. He is also a guy that knows how to win, boasting a 33-14 record as a starter with two NFC Championship appearances and a Super Bowl appearance.Unfortunately, Garoppolo does not seem like the type of quarterback to elevate a team. He has to have a strong supporting cast around him and has not shown the ability to win games when they matter the most. His injury history also means it will be tough to rely on him for a full season, meaning the Colts would need to acquire a solid backup in case Garoppolo went down.When comparing Garoppolo to Wentz, Wentz seems more volatile with great peaks and valleys. But Garoppolos ceiling is not as high as Wentzs, and it would not be much of an upgrade. While Garoppolo may not lose as many games for the Colts as Wentz did, it is hard to say whether he could get the Colts over the top.Another factor playing into this is the Colts would need to trade for Garoppolo to acquire him. There will be other teams interested in the veteran quarterback, driving his price up. Considering it would not be Andrew Triggs Jersey much of an upgrade, the Colts should not give up an abundance of draft capital for his services.Final verdict: If he can be acquired for a third-round pick or le s, the Colts should take a chance on Garoppolo.Previous Entries

QB Carousel How Does Jimmy Garoppolo Fit

Despite evidence to the contrary, the Giants haven’t lost confidence in quarterback Daniel Jones’s ability to remain as their franchise signal-caller for the next decade-plus.But Dave Winfield Jersey they also know that for their expectations to be fulfilled, they’re going to have to give the 24-year-old a little more help than what he’s received thus far.That help has already begun under new head coach Brian Daboll. In his introductory pre s conference, he revealed that he asked Jones to give him a list of plays he likes to run from his past to have a starting point in building a playbook that will allow Jones to succeed.In building up a system in that fashion, former NFL quarterback/current NFL Network analyst David Carr believes that it will go a long way toward helping Jones not only play faster but better.“You have to give him a system that he can own,“ Carr told . „It doesn’t matter what the system is because at the end of the day if your quarterback believes in it and he knows that he can make it work, you can make anything work.“Every coach the Giants have brought in has pledged to develop a system that best fits the players, but at the same time, that hasn’t entirely been the case.Most recently, Jason Garrett’s system, which by today’s standards is somewhat outdated, was supposed San Diego Padres to take better advantage of Jones’s abilities, namely his ability to throw the deep ball.However, that was not the case. Last season, Jones completed of 20+ yards, recording four touchdowns and two interceptions. He also had one drop among those attempts.Scroll to ContinueThat’s a significant regre sion when Jones, lacking big-play speed among his receivers, connected on 20 of 43 deep pa s attempts (46.5) for six touchdowns, no interceptions with only two dropped balls.Jones, for his part, sounded happy with Daboll’s approach to getting not just their working relationship off on Cory Spangenberg Jersey the right foot but also ensuring that the system they put in place is the best po sible fit. „Him asking for my ideas and some of the things that I’ve liked to run … was cool,“ . „It will be an ongoing proce s to get a feel for what those things are — what I like, what he likes. And we’ll do it.“And if that system should turn into one that Jones can wrap his head around, Carr thinks that good things await the Giants in the future. „I think that Daniel is fully capable of being a Super Bowl quarterback for the Giants,“ Carr said. „I think that his makeup is exactly right for that city. I think that his qualities on the field are really no different than (Eli Manning’s). „I see his leadership abilities in the same light. Eli was never a rah-rah guy, but he would be an extension of the coaching staff on the field. And I see Daniel doing the same things. The problem is he just has nine systems or Tyson Ross Jersey in his head, you know, and he doesn’t really know what’s right yet.“As Jones works with Daboll, hopefully, that picture will gain clarity.

How Giants Plan to Position QB Daniel Jo

Former Penn State quarterback Tommy Stevens announced on Friday he will use his last year of college eligibility at Mi si sippi State.Stevens, who attended Penn State for David Ortiz Jersey four years and backed up Trace McSorley for the last three, made the announcement via Twitter.Hail State! Tommy Stevens (@TMS_II) MORE: The move makes sense on several fronts. Logistically speaking, Mi si sippi State is in need of a starting quarterback after Nick Fitzgerald, a big Boston Red Sox Hoodie -bodied, mobile pa ser, exhausted his eligiblity after three years starting. While Stevens (6-5, 240 pounds) has never thrown more than 27 pa ses in a season, he also has the athleticism to step in and replace Fitzgerald, playing the „lion“ position at Penn State.It also makes sense considering Mi si sippi State coach Joe Moorhead, in his second season in Starkville, was Stevens‘ offensive coordinator for three years in Happy Valley. The two are obviously familiar with each other, and Stevens should have no problem picking Bill Lee Jersey up his former OC’s offensive system.The only potential hangup in Stevens‘ move to Mi si sippi State is junior Bulldogs quarterback Keytaon Thompson, whoappeared in nine games in 2018, Chris Sale Jersey making two starts, and threw for 458 yards and six touchdowns to one interception. He also ran for 226 yards and four more scores.That said, Stevens wouldn’t transfer to Starkville simply to sit behind another quarterback. He’ll rely on his athleticism and experience to try and beat out Thompson in the quarterback race. Stevens chose the Bulldogs over Kentucky, Illinois andMiami ofOhio.

Raiders NFL Draft Prospect Abraham Lucas

Travis Feeney, a well-traveled Corey Knebel Jersey outside linebacker since leaving the University of Washington football program, turned up on Thursday as an eight-round draft pick for the Tampa Bay Bandits of the new USFL restart.The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Feeney, who played for the Huskies from 2011 to 2015, is just looking for steady game time again, something that has eluded him over the past six football seasons.“Let’s do it!“ he tweeted after learning of his draft position.Feeney now finds himself in Tampa Bay, a football city friendly to former Huskies, especially defensive players. The NFL’s Buccaneers, of course, employ defensive Christian Yelich Jersey tackles Vita Vea and Benning Potoa’e, plus outside linebacker Joe Tryon-Shoyinka.The California native initially went to the Pittsburgh Steelers as a 2016 sixth-round draft pick and the 220th player chosen.

The entered this offseason’s free agency period without much money to spend but still managed to work their way into the spotlight. By now, everybody knows the story.After months of here-or-there rumors linking them to embattled then-Houston Texans quarterback , the Falcons jumped in headfirst, rolling out an elaborate plan to put themselves in prime position to land the three-time Pro Bowler.Except, there was a problem. Even with Watson’s bevy of off-field problems, the ball was in court, meaning Dontae Johnson Jersey the final decision went through him, not the Texans. Seemingly on the verge of choosing Atlanta, the Cleveland Browns offered Watson a ma sive five-year, $230 million fully guaranteed contract, and he simply couldn’t resist.That set off another problem for the Falcons: franchise quarterback wasn’t going to stay where he didn’t feel he was valued. Shortly after the Watson saga, Atlanta traded Ryan to the Indianapolis Colts for a third-round pick.Then, the Falcons signed and drafted Desmond Ridder in the third round, giving the team a pair of athletic signal callers to drive the boat in place of Ryan.That’s the story. Finished. Sealed.Expect it isn’t.New details have emerged about what went down inside the walls of Falcons headquarters during the team’s pursuit of Watson.According to most within the Falcons building a sumed Watson was theirs,“ and in the proce s of recruiting Watson, Atlanta was „quietly shopping“ Ryan. Despite radio silence on Ryan’s behalf, he handled it like a consummate pro, though he „knew it was time“ to move on, regardle s of the result of Watson’s decision.Wanting to „do right“ by Ryan, Tony Gonzalez Jersey the Falcons kept their veteran signal caller in the loop, allowing him to do his own research while the Colts did theirs. Indianapolis wasn’t the only team in the mix for Ryan, but it was seemingly the one that made the most sense for him.Scroll to ContinuePer the report, Kansas City Chiefs Jersey Ryan made several phone calls to people he trusted in an attempt to learn more about the Colts‘ organization. His first two calls were to Indianapolis legend and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning and eight-time Pro Bowl signal caller Philip Rivers, who made a similar late-career move to the Colts.Ryan’s questions ranged from Colts owner Jim Irsay to the school districts in Indianapolis, and he largely received rave reviews on all accounts.The day after Watson decided on Cleveland, Ryan held a two-hour virtual meeting with Colts general manager Chris Ballard, head coach Frank Reich, offensive coordinator Marcus Brady and a sistant quarterbacks coach Parks Frazier. Ryan entered the meeting looking for the right feel and left with exactly that.Two days later, Ryan was a Colt.Later that day, Atlanta Breeland Speaks Jersey signed Mariota, and the new era began.Now, the NFL calendar will flip to a new season, with Ryan chasing his first Super Bowl ring in his 15th season and Mariota looking to prove he’s worthy of a starting spot.Atlanta’s decision to pursue Watson sent shock waves through the groundwork of the organization. What followed was a ripple effect of great proportions, leaving the Falcons with quarterback questions moving forward and the Colts in position to make a run at a title.What’s the next step? All parties involved – sans Watson, who won’t debut until Week 13 – will hit the field on Sunday with a chance to prove their new organization right, and perhaps more applicably for Ryan, his old organization wrong.

Despite the having a game this Friday at , against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason opener, the team will use the majority of this week to continue its work at training camp.“It’s still about us, and we’re really not even going to worry about Atlanta until the day before,“ Dan Campbell said. „And, it’ll be more of a jog-through mode. Here’s what Atlanta does. We rep our guys. But, everything up until the day before the game is about Detroit versus Detroit. So, we still — we’re in camp. We got to get better at what we do, and still compete against each other.“On a day that featured increase humidity and weather concerns that forced the team to cancel fans being Lou Gehrig Jersey able to attend, the team practiced for approximately 90 minutes.After 60 minutes, the rain fell to break up some of the humidity, but the team did not participate in many seven-on-seven or 11-on-11 drills.A significant amount of work was done on special teams, and even produced some friendly ribbing, when a rookie was matched up with a long-snapper during one of the final drills before practice concluded.Here are observations from Day 11 of Lions training camp.AttendanceOn Monday, center returned to practice.It was observed that seven players were not practicing, including Josh Johnson, , Quintez Cephus, Julian Okwara, Ifeatu Melifonwu, Taylor Decker and Levi Onwuzurike.Cornerback Jeff Okudah made his return to the practice field. Campbell explained to reporters, prior to practice, that he had no concerns about the young safety at this point of training camp.Glover Quin and Barry Sanders were in attendance to observe practice, along with NFL Network’s Shaun O’Hara.Scroll to ContinueSanders had a lengthy with Lions general manager Brad Holmes on the sidelines.Observations1.) Quarterback was razor sharp all afternoon. His to ses were crisp and on target. Early at practice, he was connecting with several of the receivers on the roster. Only wideout Kalif Raymond had a ball bounce off of his shoulder for an incompletion, on his first dozen to ses of the afternoon.2.) During the one team period with the starting offense, Goff found DJ Chark for a reception, in which the talented Don Larsen Jersey wideout made a finger-tip grab on a laser pa s.The previous play, Goff found Amon-Ra St. Brown on a deep pa s. It appeared the plan was for the team to to s the ball deeper on Monday.Detroit’s signal-caller was also working with T.J. Hockenson during the portion of practice devoted to special teams.3.) Cornerback Amani Oruwariye has not seemed like his typical self at practice. The offense targeted him regularly, and he was the defensive back Chark beat. For the caliber of player that Oruwariye is, the last two practices at Allen Park do not appear to have been his best.4.) Chase Lucas was ribbed at the end of practice by the coaching staff when long-snapper Scott Daly was able to reach him during a special teams drill. Others were able to elude their defenders easily, while the rookie could not best Daly. Lucas laughed it off when the coaching staff ribbed him, saying a player of Yogi Berra Jersey his caliber should not be getting tackled by a long snapper.5.) The starting cornerbacks were Will Harris and Amani Oruwariye on first-team defense. It will be interesting to observe the snap counts this Friday between Harris and Okudah, whom are both battling for a job starting opposite of the team’s best defensive back.6.) Tracy Walker was the best defensive player on the field during one-on-one drills, as he was able to win four of his reps against Derrick Deese, Devin Funche s and Hockenson. Craig Reynolds also shined, as he bested Alex Anzalone and Derrick Barnes.7.) Four players have now retired this offseason. After it was announced that offensive lineman Zein Obeid retired, Campbell was asked about the elevated number of players on the roster retiring from the league while on his watch.He replied, „I know why you’re asking, because it is obvious. But, I just feel like it’s — everybody’s different and, look, it’s not for everybody. It’s not. Not everything’s easy about it, and it’s not just about football.

While there are no reports explaining how Hager sustained the injury, many are speculating he punched a wall (or some object) due to frustration after losing to Oklahoma.Hager Evan Gattis Jersey made headlines in late November when he wasreprimanded by the Big 12 for his negative comments toward Oklahoma.In the Big 12 Championship, Hager finished with just Jimmy Wynn Jersey one tackle and struggled mightily against the Sooners‘ offensive line.

Reggie Bush is upset with ESPN for a bizarre reason.The former Heisman trophy running back recently (link is slightly NSFW)in which he discu sed a variety of topics, including the recent trend of the NCAA allowing players to profit off their names and likene s.Bush was asked whether he’d be interested in coaching and says that’s not a job for him. Instead, he wants to help guide players. During his answer, he touched on the subject of players making Jordan Howard Jersey money.From Playboy:Nope, no coaching for me. Maybe Id take a front-office position, but Im not trying to go back and coach. I would like to help people, but Id rather just pop in for guidance. Guidance is the one thing that young athletes coming through the college system mi s on so much. I mi sed on it. Theyre about to start paying college athletes. This is something that has never been experienced before, and its going to destroy some people if their foundation is not in the right place.MORE: His last quote provided a juicy soundbite when he said, „its going to destroy some people.“ So ESPN took the quotes and . It’s a common practice you’ll see not only on every sports site, Andre Dillard Jersey but every single news site on the internet.But that didn’t stop Bush from voicing his complaints on Twitter.Dear Please take this story down, I did not speak to you, I never gave you approval to write this story, this is not what I said nor the context I said it in, and your trying to use my name with this bogus headline for clickbait. Lets not allow this to happen again… Reggie Bush (@ReggieBush) Bush claiming, „I did not speak to you, I never gave you approval to write this story“ is a really strange response. Saying ESPN can’t write about him simply because he didn’t talk to them is just wrong.Websites constantly write about quotes athletes give to other publications. Considering Bush has dealt with the media his entire career, and is now currently a member of the media as an analyst for Fox Sports means he should know Reggie White Jersey better.His second criticism is a little more fair, but it still doesn‘ Ronald Darby Jersey t make sense. Bush claims this is „not what I said,“ but the article directly quotes him from the Playboy interview. It is what he said. If it’s not what he said, then he has an i sue with Playboy, not ESPN.Bush’s quotes eventually made their way to ESPN’s „SportsCenter“ broadcast, where analysts discu sed them. And at the end of the segment, ESPN released a statement through an anchor claiming the network was trying to reach out to him for clarification.However, it’s not clear whether ESPN will be able to contact Bush. The former running back , „My contract is with Fox Sports I cant even talk to ESPN.“

He didn’t hesitate to do so again with free agency looming.Cincinnati has a hole at tight end with C.J. Uzomah set to become a free agent.

INDIANAPOLIS Depending on who you talk to around the NFL these days, Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson could be selected anywhere from the middle of the first round to the middle of the third in this year’s NFL Draft.Whether the Buffalo Bills would consider snagging him with their first pick, at No. 25 overall, is something they would never reveal until they’re on the clock.But it’s something they at least owe it to themselves to discu s, especially because of the potential crisis they face at that position.Emmanuel Sanders has an expiring contract. He will turn 35 this month and is contemplating retirement.Isaiah McKenzie, a potential heir to the slot position so masterfully manned by Cole Beasley for the previous three seasons, is due to hit unrestricted Rodger Saffold Jersey free agency as well.Beasley will turn 33 next month and will carry a salary cap hit of $7.6 million, a number they can reduce to $1.5 million by letting him go.Even as a first-round pick, Dotson would represent some serious cost-control with perhaps greater upside than any of them.He also is willing (and able) to handle the return duties that McKenzie and last year’s sixth-round pick, Marquez Stevenson, were relieved of when coach Sean McDermott lost faith in their ability to deliver in bad weather. But unlike McKenzie and Stevenson, Dotson is a proven performer in frozen conditions all around the Big Ten.Although Dotson wants the ball more than he gets it, he understands it doesn’t work that way. He’s a teammate first, a great individual talent second.At Penn State, his catch totals rose from 13 to 27 to 52 to 91 as a senior, when he finished with a career-best 12 TD receptions. He also averaged 13.5 yards on 25 career punt returns.Dotson was even good on the gadgets, completing both pa s attempts as a senior for 43 Derrick Henry Jersey yards.As of Wednesday morning, the Bills were one of the teams that had interviewed him.“Just getting to know me, putting a face with the name, talking about the previous year, watching my film,“ Dotson claimed. „Just getting to know me, basically.“Scroll to ContinueSo what does he know about them?“It’s very cold there,“ he said. „Stefon Diggs is someone I truly look up to. One of the great Tennessee Titans Jersey receivers in the league right now. Very young, talented quarterback in Josh Allen . It would be a great opportunity. … He’s one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL right now, and I would be extremely excited for the moment.“Dotson is most proud of his ability to do it all because he can comprehend it all.“Definitely my versatility, playing inside and outside, being able to play any wide-receiver position on the field,“ Dotson said. „When I get the ball in my hands, it’s exciting. I’m an explosive player. Very fast. I can take the top off a defense. I’m just ready to make the most of my opportunity, wherever I land.“Catching the football is all Dotson wants to do, and he doesn’t nece sarily have to be open to make plays. He’s never let his limited size (5-11, 185 pounds) keep him from making contested catches a specialty.“That’s just something I’ve been working on my entire life,“ Dotson said. Been catching the football since I was about 3 years old. So really, when I think about it, catching the football is pretty much therapeutic to me. It’s something Corey Davis Jersey I really enjoy. So, growing up, catching contested pa ses is something I’ve been doing my whole life.“So to recap:Speed: Check.Production: Check.Football IQ: Check.Foul-weather ability: Check.Student of the game: Check.So keep an eye on Jahan Dotson. Better yet, keep both eyes on him. Because he moves kind of fast.

CINCINNATI Andrew Whitworth is one of the best offensive linemen in Bengals‘ history.The former All-Pro retired this offseason, which means he has more time to react to the Justin Bethel Jersey football he sees during training camp.The former Bengals and Rams star praised left tackle Jonah Williams after seeing a clip of him blocking Joseph O sai in a 1-on-1 drill.“Walk in the park for Jonah!,“ Whitworth tweeted. „Slow it down and Watch how well he mirrors the feet of rusher! Matt Judon Jersey Each step gets down in rhythm with the rush!“Whitworth spent 11 seasons in Cincinnati before signing with Los Angeles in 2017. The Bengals took Williams with the 11th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft hoping that he could fill the Tony Jefferson Jersey void that Whitworth left behind.Williams has certainly flashed his potential and could be even better this season.

It’s Year 2 of the Dan Mullen era in Gainesville, and Dwight Gooden Jersey if the first year is anything to go off of, the Gators have a lot to look forward in 2019.Mullen helped turn around a disastrous 2017 season by improving theoffensiveand scoring a couple of key upsets en route to a 10-3 season. That said, the Gators also lost to SEC East opponent Kentucky for the first time in 31 years something the Florida contingent will want corrected as soon as po sible.MORE: The Gators look to have another challenging year ahead of them, but it goes without saying that everyone has bought into the Dan Mullen way of doing things part of the reason Floridais ranked No. 9in Sporting News‘ pre-preseason top 25 for 2019.

That included a four-game stretch to end the season (all wins) in which he completed 63 of 97 pa ses for 862 yards and eight touchdowns. But redshirt-freshman Emory Jones Noah Syndergaard Jersey was the first big-name recruit of the Mullens era, and many expect him to challenge Franks for the starting position this spring.2. Defensive lineGone are CeCe Jefferson and Jachai Polite, who combined for 25.5 tackles for lo s and 12 sacks in 2018. Who steps up to fill their roles? Jabari Zuniga could very well be that guy: He’s the leading returner in tackles for lo s (11) and sacks (6.5). Others who could step up areJonathan Greenard,Jeremiah Moonand Andrew Chatfield and Bogle.3. Gators‘ momentumMullen’s first season in Gainesville was, by all accounts, a fantastic debut. Not only did the Gators turn around a 4-8 season with a 10-3 campaign, they also beat ranked teams in Mi si sippi State, Fiesta bowl champion LSU and Sugar Bowl opponentMichigan. The question now becomes: Can Florida keep that momentum going in 2019? It bookends the seasons with rebuilding programs in Miami and Florida State, and that could go a long way in Mullen making Florida the premiere in-state program. But then there’s No. 3 Georgia (which beat the Gators 37-16 last year), No. 7 LSU (looking to avenge its 27-19 lo s) andNo. 16 Auburn. It’s a tough challenge for Mullen and Co New York Mets Hoodie ., but the Gators seem to have bought in to what he’s selling there in Gainesville.

Florida football 2019 Schedule roster re

1.) How impre sed are you with DJ Chark? : Chark has looked as good as advertised thus far in training camp. He provides the Lions with a vertical threat that wasn’t existent in Detroit’s pa sing game last season. I’m excited to see the chemistry that Lions starting signal-caller Jared Goff and him will continue to develop as camp progre ses and the regular season draws closer. : The Lions are using the talented wideout in vastly different ways than the Jaguars did. He told reporters following practice Jarred Vanderbilt Jersey on Saturday, „Its just different offenses asking me to do different things. And this offense that Im in currently asks me to do things. Like, Im lining up on both sides of the field. Im not nece sarily always in the boundary. Sometimes, its the (No. 3 receiver) on the outside. A lot of times, Im lining up at one, sometimes two. But here, Im lined up one, two or three. Things like that, and just different concepts that theyre asking me to do that I just havent really done since maybe my second year in the league. … Its a lot of nuances in the playbook thats allowing me to move around.2.) Are you concerned about the defense giving up deep pa ses at a high rate lately? : Yes. And, it’s because of the fact that the secondary wasn’t very good a season ago, either. Also, it’s been concerning that Amani Oruwariye has yet to look as sharp as he did last year. Plus, Jeff Okudah has continued to look miles and miles behind where he should be at this juncture in his career. Detroit’s defensive backs unit, as it’s presently structured, is a big concern for me. : I was surprised that Amani Oruwariye did not have a good practice on Friday. The defense has given up the deep ball at a little bit higher rate than I would have thought. But, the defense is Nikola Jokic Jersey still trying out different rotations and Ifeatu Melifonwu, Will Harris have changed positions. I would expect some improvements in coverage the next couple of weeks. But, the play of the secondary is something to monitor.3.) Who has been a surprise player in training camp? : I’m going to go with Trinity Benson. He’s likely battling for the last spot on the team’s receivers depth chart, and so far, he’s impre sed, beating defenders deep multiple times with his sub-4.4 speed. He’ll need to continue his great effort, in order to make the Lions‘ 53-man roster out of training camp. : Besides those you would expect to play well, Kalif Raymond has been a consistent performer daily. He is quite fast and he brings it each practice. While he may not make all of the headlines, his play on the field is being noticed by the quarterbacks, who target him regularly each practice.Scroll to Continue4.) Austin Bryant has been making noise on defense. What are you expecting out of him in 2022? : Well, I don’t want to get my hopes up just yet regarding Bryant. And, it’s because of the fact that he’s never been able to stay healthy throughout his NFL career. The fourth-year pro has never played in more than 14 games in a regular season. And, while I respect the numbers he produced a season ago, it was the first year, of his time in the NFL, in which he logged a single sack. He went on to record a career-best 4.5 sacks, to go along with 31 total tackles, five tackles for lo s and six QB hits in 14 games (five starts) in 2021. It’ll be Malik Beasley Jersey interesting to see if he can carry over that positive play into the preseason and then into the regular season this year.I expect Bryant to be a quality reserve EDGE for the Lions in 2022, with him suiting up for 12 games and recording at least 2.5 sacks. : I think Bryant is a player that had a lot to prove entering training camp. The team keeps loading up at his position, but he keeps battling and finding ways to make plays Devin Harris Jersey . Head coach Dan Campbell noted Bryant stood out on film when he first got to Detroit. If he can take steps forward in 2022, the defensive line can meet all of their goals at a faster pace.5.) When will Malcolm Rodriguez start in the NFL? : I think there will be a point this season during which Alex Anzalone will prove he’s not a starting-caliber NFL linebacker, while second-year pro Derrick Barnes will prove that he’s not deserving of an ample amount of playing time. When that time comes, I expect Rodriguez to emerge on to the scene and to take on a starting role. My prediction is that the aforementioned scenario will occur leading into the Lions‘ Week 7 contest with the Dallas Cowboys, a week after Detroit’s bye. : I think Rodriguez is a player who can play a very important role in Aaron Glenn’s defense. Despite all of the hype surrounding him, he is still a rookie. I think he will play meaningful snaps this season, but will not have an opportunity to start until 2023. Alex Anzalone is the quarterback of the defense and Chris Board, Derrick Barnes should remain ahead of him on the depth chart all season.

A year ago, a half-dozen University of Washington basketball players entered the transfer portal following a disastrous 5-21 season, looking for a fresh start.While a rebuilt Husky team on Sunday failed to land a postseason tournament berth, most of Mike Hopkins‘ defectors fared better elsewhere.Former Husky guards RaeQuan Battle and Nate Pryor, who now play for Montana State and New Mexico State, respectively, are part of NCAA Tournament teams. Jrue Holiday Jersey Ex-UW guard Marcus Tsohonis and forward Hameir Wright, with Virginia Commonwealth and North Texas, respectively, will enter the NIT.That leaves guard Erik Stevenson and forward J’Raan Brooks, who play for South Carolina and UC San Diego, to go without a postseason tournament same as the Huskies.For Brooks, it’s been much worse than that. The 6-foot-9 junior injured a knee in a preseason exhibition game in which he was a starter and mi sed the entire season.Of the four transfers who joined the UW this season and replaced these guys, guards Terrell Brown Jr. and Daejon Davis finished their college careers with just one tournament appearance each. Brown played in the 2019 CollegeInsider.com event for Seattle U and Davis shared in the 2018 NIT with Stanford.Emmitt Matthews Jr., the Huskies forward who still has eligibility remaining, appeared in the 2019 CBI tournament and the 2021 NCAA tournament for West Virginia.TCU transfer guard Jordan Crawford Jersey PJ Fuller still awaits his first postseason berth as a collegian.Of the departed, former Huskies Battle and Pryor both come off the bench for their new teams and play solid contributor roles. In fact, each won a game this season with a buzzer shot.A 6-foot-5 sophomore from Tulalip, Washington, Battle drained a 35-footer to beat Northern Colorado 87-85 at home just a week ago. In early December, Pryor to sed in a short shot over his head to topple New Mexico 78-76 in overtime in front of 13,000 people in Albuquerque.Scroll to ContinueFor a 27-7 team that won the Big Sky tournament, Battle averages 8.5 points per game as the Bobcats‘ fourth-leading scorer. Turning his career around, he’s reached double figures in points in 14 of his past 17 games. He’s been used as a Josh Hart Jersey sub for all 34 games.Pryor, a 6-foot-4 junior from Seattle, started 6 of 19 games that he appeared while dealing with a string of injuries for 26-6 New Mexico State, the WAC champion. He averages 2.9 points an outing.Tsohonis heads to the NIT with VCU. A 6-foot-3 junior guard from Portland, he averages 5.5 ppg for a 21-9 team that will face Princeton in the opening round. He’s started 3 of the 27 games he appeared in so far.Wright, a two-year and 71-game starter for the UW, likewise turns to the NIT, but he’s been humbled by his transfer to North Texas. The 6-foot-9 forward from Albany, New York, doesn’t play much. Wright appeared in just 11 regular-season games, a third of the schedule, while averaging just 7.2 minutes and 1.5 points each outing. North Texas, 24-6, plays its NIT opener against Texas State.Then Anthony Davis Jersey there’s Stevenson. He’s not going anywhere either, with his 18-13 South Carolina team snubbed by the postseason tournaments. The 6-foot-3 junior guard from Lacey, Washington, started all 31 games for his third team after previously playing for Wichita State and the UW.Stevenson finished as the Gamecocks‘ second-leading scorer at 11.6 points per game, while shooting 36.9 percent from the field and 33.1 from 3-point range.Of these six players, only Wright appeared in a postseason tourney while with the Huskies, going to the NIT as a freshman in 2018 and the NCAAs as a sophomore the following year.

Most UW Transfers Landed Postseason Bert

On the surface, to become a member of the seemed simple, considering the team gave him a fruitful six-year, $120 million deal as he heads into his 12th season at age 33. After being traded from his longtime Denver Broncos to the in Nov. 2021, Miller only spent about three months with the Rams before winning Super Bowl LVI and heading into He had secured his second Super Bowl ring and was set to hit free agency. Multiple teams were interested in the aging linebacker, including the Rams, who seemed destined to bring him back for a run at repeat titles after the magical postseason the team had. And even minutes before Mike Person Jersey signing his contract with the Bills, it was this magical feeling that nearly made him change his mind once he arrived at the Buffalo facility. Miller talked about the ordeal on as he detailed the back-and-forth hesitation he felt before signing a deal that would likely lock him in for the remainder of his career.“It was a tough decision for me,“ Miller said. „I wanted to be a Bill, I wanted to play for the Rams, didn’t want to leave the Rams, didn’t want to leave Aaron Donald, coach (Sean) McVay. I made the decision but it wasn’t set in stone. I had made the decision, the news broke and stuff and everybody is looking at me like ‚Bro, why you not happy?'“Miller made it clear how tough of a decision it was to leave a team like the Rams and a place as wonderful as LA to go to what was seemingly an entire different world 2,500 miles on the other side of the country in Buffalo. Miller admitted he even considered telling the Bills to fly him back and he would offer to cover the private jet fees that they just spent on him. „I really don’t want to leave the Rams,“ he said. „I got on the plane and I’m gonna go out here and tell (the Bills) like ‚I know what I said, I’ll pay for the jet that you guys flew me out here with, but I’m going back to the Rams.‘ And I got there, landed, it was cold. We went to get some food – didn’t like the food – it’s just hard coming from LA to Buffalo. But when I got there and drove up to the facility, I started to feel a little bit better. I started to meet all the guys that’s working at the facility from the trainers, the support system … and everybody and I started to feel a little bit better.But then, the reality of the situation hit Miller: he was at the threshold of making one of the biggest decisions in his career.“Then they were like ‚Okay let’s go upstairs and sign the contract,‘ and was like ‚Dang, I gotta go sign a contract?‘ I went upstairs, Jerry Rice Jersey my agent was there. I asked ‚Can I go to the bathroom?‘ Went to the bathroom with my little brother and my camera man and I’m taking to these guys like ‚Man, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know if I’m gonna do this man.'“Scroll to ContinueThe 6-3, 250-pound linebacker was huddled in the bathroom with his brother and camera man upon his first arrival. To get a sense about much he wanted to return to LA, look no further.“They sent somebody Weston Richburg Jersey from the Bills into the bathroom to get me,“ Miller said. „I come out, my agent is like telling everybody to go out for a little bit, (and said) ‚Let me talk to Von.‘ He was like ‚Man, just give me a hug.‘ He hated seeing me like this, he wanted me to be happy, to be excited to be here – which I was – but I just didn’t want to leave the Rams.“The back-and-forth battle in his own head continued for nearly an hour as Miller continued to talk with his agent, Joby Branion, about what to do. While keeping the Bills staff waiting, he got a surprise visit from two top a sistants.“I’m sitting there talking to Joby for like 45 minutes … and I hear a knock on the door and it was coach (Eric) Washington and coach (Leslie) Frazier that came in and broke down exactly how they gonna use me on the defense … and I started to feel a whole lot better,“ Miller said.But it was the visit paid by coach Sean McDermott that seemed to bring Miller over the edge of uncertainty to sign his lucrative contract. McDermott, who was hired as the team’s head coach in 2017, used his own personal experience to show Miller that he understood the indecision he was experiencing. „I was in there for another 20 minutes so now it’s been a little over hour that I’ve been sitting in there, still haven’t signed the contract, Miller said. „And coach McDermott knocks on the door and he sits down with me and tells me ‚Man you know what, I get it. It’s Buffalo. When I told my kids that I was taking a head-coaching job here in Buffalo, they cried. But now, they love it and it’s a special place. It doesn’t look like it, but you will love this place too.“McDermott was blatantly honest with Miller, something that the linebacker appreciated. The Bills, who are coming off a 11-6 season that saw them fall po se sion short of an appearance in the AFC Championship, have all the tools nece sary to get back to that position and don’t Terrell Owens Jersey nece sarily Miller. McDermott didn’t mince his words and told Miller exactly that. „‚We’re not bringing you here to save us, we already got a good team,“ McDermott said, per Miller. „We just need you to put us over the top. We want you to do the same thing that you did with the Rams.“Despite being open about his hesitations to sign with Buffalo, Miller has been just as honest about his newfound love for the team and the city since his arrival. „Just by my limited time there man, it really is a special place and I do love it,“ Miller said. „I played in cold games before and I started to get this vibe like man this is the right decision for me to make and I signed the contract and I’m a Buffalo Bill.“Luckily for Miller, he won’t have to wait long to make a trip back to LA and SoFi Stadium. In the 2022 season-opener, the Rams will host the Bills on Thursday, Sept. 8, as Miller and his new team aim for an early-season takedown of the defending champs.

How Von Miller Nearly Ditched Bills for

FOXBORO With the retirement of Marian Hossa Jersey running back James White, the New England Patriots found themselves in search of a reliable option on third-down.It appeared that the Pats had found their man in hybrid runner/receiver Ty Montgomery.However, a potential injury during the on Friday may derail Montgomerys regular season debut.With just over six minutes remaining in the first quarter, . Unfortunately, he appeared to roll his ankle in the opposite direction of his body and remained down on the field. Montgomery was helped to the sideline by New Englands training Erik Gustafsson Jersey personnel, where he slammed his helmet in frustration. After a brief evaluation, he was taken via cart to the locker room. Scroll to ContinueMontgomery had made a strong case to earn a roster spot, with a strong performance during both training camp, as well as the preseason. His special teams acumen may help his case, as he took 48% of the New Orleans Saints snaps a year ago, both as a kick returner and on coverage teams. With the Patriots, he was expected to settle into an offensive option on third-down, as well as a backfield receiver Patrick Sharp Jersey . At his best, he can provide solid contributions as a hybrid receiver/running back and kick returner. Montgomery’s addition was to have helped to mitigate the lo ses of running back Brandon Bolden and fullback Jakob Johnson, who both signed with the Las Vegas Raiders. Both Bolden and Johnson were regular contributors both on Chicago Blackhawks Jersey offense, and special teams.Montgomerys status for the remainder of the game has yet to be provided.

Each week during this year’s season, Jaguar Report will take Jacksonville Jaguars-related questions from our readers acro s social media and answer them in a question-and-answer format, giving readers a chance to have their voices heard.You can submit your questions every week by tweeting them to the or by submitting them .This week, we take a look at the moves the Jaguars made on the waiver wire, the thin defensive line depth, Mike Shannon Jersey the strengths of the roster before Week 1 vs. the Washington Commanders, and the question marks that are still facing Doug Pederson’s first squad.Q: It’s been a while, thoughts on Gervon DexterA: Ah draft questions, how I have mi sed you.I really like Gervon Dexter. Florida always seems to have talented defensive linemen in some fashion, but Dexter’s flashes are as good as any of them have been since Dominque Easley and Shariff Floyd. He is long, stacks and sheds blockers well, holds his ground at the point of attack, and has the burst and explosion off the snap that I think all defensive linemen need. The Jaguars will likely need help in this area next year, and Dexter would look especially dangerous next to Travon Walker.Q: Why does Trent Baalke hoard LBs like they’re going out of style?A: Having six inside linebackers on the roster for a few days certainly wasn’t a normal set up. The only other 3-4 team with six inside linebackers is the Arizona Cardinals, who e sentially have five if you don’t count Isaiah Simmons‘ role. Then there are the Chargers, Rams and Steelers who all have five inside linebackers. Since the formation uses two outside linebackers, this means the Jaguars have three back ups for two spots, which isn’t uncommon on most 4-3 depth charts at middle and weak side linebacker.With that said, I think the Jaguars have made an emphasis on linebacker because of the desire to improve the special teams portion of the roster. The Jaguars didn’t have great special teams coverage in the preseason from backups at the linebacker position, and the fact that Caleb Johnson wasn’t available when the Jaguars claimed Ty Summers played a role as well. So while they didn’t intend to have six linebackers in Week 1, they had to carry that many for a few days due to the waiver schedule.Q: Hi John. As most rookie TEs take time to develop and round out their game, do you see Doug going hard next year in FA after a big name player at that position? (Unle s Engram shows out of course)A: I think the Jaguars would Mark McGwire Jersey like for nothing more than for Evan Engram to stand out and earn a new contract in 2023. The Jaguars really like Engram in terms of talent and culture fit and he is seen as an extremely hard working player who wants to be great, so the desire is there for him to work out. If he doesn’t, I do think the Jaguars go aggre sive to fix tight end because of Engram, Dan Arnold, and Chris Manhertz all being pending free agents.Q: With the recent defensive front 7 moves in mind, what do you think the end goal for roster spot allocation is for the different positions along the defensive front?A: I think we are looking at it now. I think four 3-4 linemen, four outside linebackers, two nickel rushers, and five linebackers, with three of them playing defensive snaps and two serving as special teams players.Q: With summer wrapping up and rosters finalizing for now, was Baalke’s summer truly mastercla s?A: As always, wait until the games start. People talked themselves into the 2020 Jaguars, after all, so it can be done for any cla s. Still, I think several of Baalke’s moves will prove to look smart after this season — the Jaguars just need the actual wins to follow.Q: I know we’ve all seen how different the building is with Doug running the show and by all accounts that’s better, but is there anything you’ve seen that has you concerned moving forward with Pederson?A: None. At all. At Roger Maris Jersey this time last year I was skeptical about the Urban Meyer regime after seeing just how poorly he ran things — and reacted to things — during the preseason. With Pederson, I haven’t seen any red flags yet outside of the team struggling to find a kicker. That isn’t all Pederson’s fault, but it is an area he will have to prove he can navigate during the regular-season. Other than that, I think Pederson’s leadership, profe sionalism and ability to be accountable have helped the Jaguars move past the Meyer regime. I have been really impre sed.Scroll to ContinueQ: Where do you see Luke Farrell in all this? Red zone offense? Maybe use his agility as a 1st down receiving TE?A: I think he will see some snaps on offense, but not as many as Chris Manhertz or, obviously Evan Engram. It wouldn’t shock me if his blocking ability got him on the field close to the same amount as perhaps Dan Arnold, though, especially because the Jaguars like some of Farrell’s traits as a pa s-catcher outside of his blocking ability.Q What unit or units do you think will be this team’s greatest strength and what units will be their greatest weakne s?A: I think the pa s-rush is going to be the strength of the team. The Jaguars have six players I think can consistently win on third-down, something they haven’t had in years. Arden Key and Dawuane Smoot are good backups who can slide inside and rush from multiple positions, while Robertson-Harris and Fatukasi are able to make an impact in their own right. Add in Travon Walker and Josh Allen, and I think this is a promising third-down group.I also think the overall offensive scheme will be a strength of the team. The Jaguars proved their ability to scheme a defense up and create easy answers for their pa sing game, something they have been unable to do in recent years. And for how much this could get mocked, I think the punting unit is among the strengths. Logan Cooke is a special punter and the Jaguars have the speed at gunner to make offenses back up.As for the weakne ses, I think a lack of size and speed on the outside of the offense could create problems. The Jaguars don’t have any outside option who is a true burner who can win isolation matchups, which could constrict the field. I am also a bit curious about just how effectively the Jaguars will run-block after a preseason where running backs struggled with a low yards before contact per rush.Q: I truly think the jags have a shot at winning the division. Do you agree? If not why? I see 4 out of 6 wins in division.A: I think they could have a shot, but they are still a team maturing while the Colts and Titans are two teams who are already where the Jaguars lex Reyes Jersey want to be. With that said, the Colts and Titans are both far from elite rosters. Neither team is a world-beater, so if the Jaguars get on a special run and see Trevor Lawrence even outdo expectations, there is a chance.Q: Who could provide depth at NT after the cuts?A: If the Jagu

The could be unpredictable knowing it’s the first one to be conducted without a Scouting Combine for the first time since 1985.COVID-19 concerns still impacted Pro Days, and the evaluation of prospects is that much more difficult knowing the college football season was not played in fall. In fact,halfof the safest pickson this listare players that opted out of the 2021 NFL season.The defies convention in some ways, but that also is the nature of the last two seasons. That said, seven players that likely will be drafted in the first round of this year’s draft stand out as safe bets for NFL succe s.SN breaks down those seven players ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft:MORE NFL DRAFT: | Trevor Lawrence, QB, ClemsonRanked No. 1 overall on SN’s big boardLawrence has been the presumed No. 1 pick in this draft since his freshman year at Clemson.The 6-6, 220-poundquarterback pa sed for 10,098 yards, 90 TDs and 17 interceptions in aproductive career that included three College Football Playoff appearances.Lawrence would be the in the Super Bowl era,and with that comes increased expectations. That is amplified with the pairing of first-time NFL coach Urban Meyer in Jacksonville.There also are four other potential first-round picks Lawrence will be compared to at the next level, and that always increases the stakes.Lawrence, however, has been compared to generational prospects such as John Elway, Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck. Lawrence should be able to have thesame succe s as other recent No. 1 picks at the position.PeneiSewell, OT, OregonRanked No. 3 overall on SN’s big boardPro Football Louis Williams Jersey Hall of Fame tackle Anthony Munoz is impre sed with Sewell, and that is the highest praise po sible at the position.The 6-6, 325-pound tackle allowed just one sack in his junior season before opting out in 2020, but he is generally considered the best offensive lineman in this cla s. He played left tackle as Tobias Harris Jersey a sophomore but also is capable of playing guard. He allowed just one sack in 1,376 college snaps with Oregon.Eight tackles have been selected with top-five picks since 2010. Five Trent Williams (2010), Matt Kalil (2012), Eric Fisher (2013), Lane Johnson (2013) and Brandon Scherff (2015) — have made the Pro Bowl. Sewell has the talent to join those other solid starting options atthe next level.Alijah Vera-Tucker, OT, USCRanked No. 13 overall on SN’s big boardNFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah said it out loud.I just think to me if you’re asking who are safe picks that are just going to be day-one starters and fill a role for thenext decade, I think this kid has got that type of ability and makeup, .Vera-Tucker is one of the late risers in the draft, and the ability to be an effective guard and tackle has increased his stock. At 6-4, 308 pounds, Vera-Tuckerhas the blend of size and quickne s that should make him a starter as a rookie. The cla s does have depth at the position, but he will be a value pick no matter where he falls in the first round.Rashawn Slater, OT,NorthwesternRanked No. 12 overall on SN’s big boardSlaterreceived attention in 2019for a breakout season in which he allowed zero sacks and just one quarterback hit in 11 starts. That included an impre sive performance against Ohio State’s Chase Young in the regular season.He opted out of the 2020 season, however, and this draft cla s is heavy on tackles. Landry Shamet Jersey Slater is 6-4 and 315 pounds, and he played both tackle spots in college and could potentially have the ability to slide into the guard position.That flexibility likely means Slater will be a Day 1 starter in the NFL, and the year off should not hurt that status.Ja’MarrChase, WR, LSURanked No. 2 overall on SN’s big boardChase opted out of the 2020 season, which opened the door for Alabama’s Jaylen Waddle andDeVontaSmith to jump into the best-receiver conversation.Chase a 6-foot, 208-pound receiver is every bit as good. He finished with 85 catches for 1,785 yards and averaged 21.0 yard per reception in 2019. That included 20 TDs with Joe Burrow at LSU.Chase also played at his best in the big games. Consider that against Alabama and Clemson that season, Chase finished with 15 catches for 361 yards and three TDs. He was a dominant down-field threat, and there is no doubt he can be a WR1 in the NFL. Look at what Justin Jefferson did as a rookie with Minnesota.Chase is capable of making the same impact.Gregory Rou seau, DE, MiamiRanked No. 18 overall on SN’s big boardRou seau is the third player on this list who opted out in 2020.That was disappointing, knowing he had 15.5 sacks and 19.5 tackles for lo s as a sophomore with the Hurricanes and was projecting on the same path as Ohio State’s Chase Young. Rou seaualso did not play much in 2018 after suffering a broken ankle.While that might make the 6-5, 260-pound defensive end seem like a risky pick, the value in falling out of the top-10, that makes him aneven better pick. Rou seau spent the offseason working with Calais Campbell, and he profiles as the same kind of player a defensive end who can generate pre sure from inside.Jaycee Horn, CB, South CarolinaRanked No. 22 overall on SN’s big boardHorn likely won’t be the first cornerback selected that will be Alabama’s PatrickSurtainII. Both defensive backs have NFL bloodlines, and they are going to be compared throughout their careers.Horn has length at 6-1, 205 pounds, and the only receiver to get more than Los Angeles Clippers Jersey 50 yards when covered by Horn in 30 games was Alabama’s DeVonta Smith. That’s an impre sive statistic to build on.That experience against the SEC’s best receivers will pay off. South Carolina’s last two first-round defensive backs are Stephon Gilmore and Johnathan Joseph. Horn has a high standard to meet, but he should be a solid NFL cornerback.Najee Harris, RB, AlabamaRanked No. 14 overall on SN’s big boardHarris a 6-2, 230-pound running back became known for his hurdling defenders at Alabama, but there is so much more to like about the Crimson Tide’s next running back to come through the pipeline.Harris averaged 5.8 yards per carry the last two seasons, but he also averaged 35 receptions per year. He’s a good pa s blocker, and he gets in the end zone. Harris scored 50 total TDs the last two seasons.Nick Saban has done an outstanding job of evolving the development of his running backs to suit the NFL game. Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake ranked in the top 15 in rushing last season. Harris can be productive right away.Will that push Harris into the first round? It might.

Christopher Allen’s rookie campaign is over before it began. Amid a series of roster moves, the Denver Broncos placed the undrafted outside linebacker on season-ending injured reserve.The team, in corresponding transactions, also signed running backs JaQuan Hardy and Stevie Scott Hyun-Jin Ryu Jersey and designated RB Tyreik McCallister as waived/injured, .Denver’s decision to mothball Allen, 24, likely stems from the foot injury he suffered during his final season at Alabama the injury that landed him on the Physically Unable to Perform list to start training camp. He was on July 29 but remained limited in practice.“Were just going to rest him because for him, its just been so long since hes played football,“ Cody Bellinger Jersey head coach Nathaniel Hackett said on Aug. 4. „So, for him, banging a little bit the other day, we just want to be sure to rest him and slowly work him in.Scroll to ContinueAllen was an effective edge rusher for the Crimson Tide, tallying 34 solo tackles, 18.5 tackles-for-lo s, 6.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. However, the 6-foot-3, 241-pound defender simply Fernando Valenzuela Jersey could not stay healthy, mi sing much of last year with an aforementioned foot fracture and all of 2018 due to a knee i sue.The injury jacket plummeted Allen’s stock and he went unselected in April’s draft. Denver subsequently signed him as a Julio Urias Jersey college free agent, of a four-year contract.A developmental stash, Allen should return to full health in time for the 2023 offseason program.

The Buster Skrine Jersey University of Washington football team underwent a coaching change last week.No, nobody got a pink slip. Just pink cheeks.Co-defensive coordinator Chuck Morrell went for a dramatic clean-shaven look after months of resembling the president of a notorious California motorcycle club.He went from the guy most likely to have a Harley parked outside Husky Stadium to someone driving the kids to school in the family station wagon.With the season opener against Kent State just a week away, there’s no more imagining Morrell dre sed in a frayed leather jacket with a menacing Husky Sons of Anarchy patch on the back. He now seems more likely to wear a nerd pocket protector to the next staff meeting.Previously one could have pictured Morrell, who spent 11 years as a head coach at Montana Tech, holding up his end in a bar fight in Bozeman or Mi soula. No more. He looks like a Cub Scouts leader ready to call a meeting of 10-year-olds to order.Naturally his Husky football players weighed in on his much le s Sherrick McManis Jersey brazen appearance at practice, letting him know they noticed how he’d turned soft on them.“They’re just giving me a hard time,“ Morrell said. „I tell them I’m too pretty. Got to make sure I Mike Singletary Jersey clean up once in a while. All the gray hairs they’ve been giving me, I had to get rid of them.“Scroll to ContinueInformation we didn’t need, the veteran coach joked there might have been all kinds of food hidden away in his Grizzly Adams-styled follicles that needed to be taken out with the trash.Husky head coach Kalen DeBoer, as the face of Husky football, always comes acro s with a conservative, buttoned-down and closely shaven approach, which is befitting of his personality as much as a recommended job requirement.However, many of DeBoer’s a sistant coaches, with Morrell the most obvious, have come to practice typically sporting two- or Adam Shaheen Jersey three-days growth of facial hair.It could be to send a me sage of unbridled toughne s to their players or simply a matter of personal-hygiene convenience when working extended hours while getting ready for the coming season.Morrell looks like a mild-mannered guy now, a lot more agreeable than before, instead of a coach with serious bite to him who lives in a cabin somewhere.Yet UW players still would best be advised not to test him and find out.

Troy Hill Larry Nance Jersey is thrilled to be back with , as the team begins its quest to defend the Super Bowl title.Hill is no stranger to the organization. As an undrafted free agent in 2015, he was signed and waived by the Bengals and the Patriots beforehe played six seasons with the Rams. Each year, Hill improved and was rewarded with playing time, setting a career-high 973 snaps in 2020 with the Rams.After leaving the Rams in 2021 to sign a two-year deal with the Browns, he mi sed out on a ring. He’ll get a chance to run it back with his old team in 2022.It feels great to be back, to be honest with you. Cant get nothing better than this California sun, Hill said. Being in a familiar organization and how they run things is a good thing for me. It’s definitely helpful just being able to come back and transition to something that I’m familiar with.Entering the 2022 season, the 30-year-old is one of the veterans on the team, having to take a . But for Hill, its about more than just being older, or knowing the language of the defense. Hes a real calming figure, another calming figure in that room, defensive coordinator Raheem Morris said last week. Hes poised. Hes a pro. I complimented him today on how well hes matured coming from where he came from, coming into this league how he got here, going through Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Jersey the growing pains of a young player and maturing and watching how mature he is now and how he moves, hes an example (for them). Part of that leadership role is being a mentor for some of the promising young cornerbacks on the roster.During the offseason,the Rams drafted Decobie Durant and , two corners to help bolster the depth of the cornerback room.Due to injuries and Covid-19, the cornerbacks at the top of the depth chart – Ramsey, Darious Williams and David Long – only played together in seven out of Larry Nance Jr. Jersey the 21 regular-season and postseason games last year. Young players likeNick Scott,Robert Rochell, Terrell Burge s, and Donte Deayon were all relied on to make their first NFL starts.Scroll to Continue“We have a very talented, young secondary group. They all hungry, they all dogs, and all they want to be great,“ Hill said. „So for me, it was more so of saying little things on how to play in this defense and be able to make plays in far as like technique and things like that.“ Hill is back in a familiar setting, but the Rams have changed a bit with new faces in the secondary and coaching changes with defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Jonathan Cooley.Wade Phillips was the defensive coordinator for the Rams from 2017-2019 and Brandon Staley was the Rams‘ defensive coordinator in 2020.“He brings a lot of energy to his defense, he brings a lot of swag to his defense, and that’s exciting to be able to play for a coach like that, Hill said of Morris. „There are definitely little things within this defense that I had to come back and learn because when we were playing with this defense under Staley there were little things that he was doing a Wilt Chamberlain Jersey little different as far as with the star and things like that.“

Backup quarterback Matt Barkley took over punting duties for the Buffalo Bills on Friday in their preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers.Barkley, engaged in a battle with fellow journeyman thrower Case Keenum in the battle to be Josh Allen’s understudy, is set to serve in the role after rookie Matt Araiza was a late scratch from the contest Richard Dent Jersey in the wake of gang rape allegations. Araiza was previously awarded the primary punter’s job, beating out veteran incumbent Matt Haack, who has since been released and signed by Indianapolis.Buffalo brought Araiza to Charlotte, where kickoff was delayed but just over a half hour due to lightning storms but he did was take the field with the other Bills specialists, including kicker Tyler Ba s and long snapper Reid Trey Burton Jersey Ferguson. Ba s had five attempts during his college career at Georgia Southern but the job eventually went to Barkley, who wound up being called upon after the team’s first po se sion. Buffalo has opted to rest numerous starters in Friday‘ Leonard Floyd Jersey s preseason finale, putting Keenum on the field during the opening po se sion.All in all, Barkley put up a respectable effort in his first boot, especially with no attempts on even a pooch kick during his college days at USC or his NFL career that began in 2013 with Philadelphia. Alas, that wasn’t enough to keep Carolina out of the end zone as they wound up scoring on a 12-play, 53-yard drive that ended with Baker Mayfield’s scoring to s to D’Onta Foreman.Scroll to ContinueHaving apparently gotten the hang of it on the first go-around, Barkley’s second attempt was quite lucrative, booting the ball 53 yards and pinning Carolina inside its own eight-yard-line.The Panthers lead Buffalo 7-0 in the latter James Daniels Jersey stages of the first quarter.

12 Chris Hubbard Jersey days.That’s how long the 49ers have to find a trade partner for Jimmy Garoppolo or release him. One or the other. They can’t afford to keep him past March 16.That’s because the NFL’s new league year starts at 1:00 p.m. Pacific on March 16. And at that exact time, every team in the league must be under the salary cap. And the 49ers currently are more than $1 million over the cap.Of course, there are plenty of ways the 49ers can sneak under the cap by Kendall Lamm Jersey March 16. But if they want to be major players in free agency, if they want to sign a quality starting cornerback and an offensive tackle who can start if Mike McGlinchey’s rehab from quad surgery takes longer than expected, if they want to re-sign some of their own free agents such as Laken Tomlinson or D.J. Jones, they’ll need to create lots of cap room. And by far the easiest way for the 49ers to create lots of cap room is Anthony Zettel Jersey to get rid of Garoppolo.Scroll to ContinueIf they trade him, they’ll instantly get more than $25 million in cap space. But trading him will be difficult, because he’s not that good, he’s very expensive and soon he will have surgery on his throwing shoulder. A team would be nuts to trade for him.If the 49ers release Garoppolo and he can’t pa s a physical, they’ll have to give him a $7.5 million guarantee, which they can recoup after he signs with another team, which could take a while. Which means they’d create roughly $18 million in cap space if they release him, and then another $7.5 Morgan Burnett Jersey million in cap space when he signs elsewhere. Think of all the players theycould sign with that money.The 49ers have 12 more days to try to trade Garoppolo. After that, they have to bite the bullet and release him. Keeping him any longer would be foolish.
