  1. running back Phillip Lindsay to injured reserve after suffering a wrist injury that will require surgery and an extensive rehab. They also moved wide receiver Andre Holmes to injured reserve. To fill out their roster Joe Flacco Jersey , the Broncos signed linebacker Aaron Wallace from the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad and cornerback Horace Richardson from the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad in preparation for their game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Wallace is a third-year player selected in the seventh-round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. He appeared in one game for the Titans before being waived and subsequently added to the Bengals practice squad.Richardson is an undrafted free agent who joined the Minnesota Vikings practice squad in 2017. He has since spent time on both the Detroit Lions and Chiefs practice squads before Denver added him to their active roster on Friday.Report: Broncos tried to trade Paxton Lynch but no one wanted him According to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis, the Broncos did attempt to trade quarterback Paxton Lynch before waiving him earlier today but no one was interested in trading for the former first-round pick. Klis notes the Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys as two teams who made sense but neither team was willing to give up assets for Lynch. In Carolina, Lynch who was compared to Cam Newton prior to the draft would have fit in their system and the Cowboys tried to trade up for Lynch before the Broncos outbid them so they made sense as well. However Bradley Chubb Jersey White , neither team valued Lynch enough to trade for him.Being a young/former first-round player almost always gives some trade value but that appears not to be the case with Lynch. I mean, hell, Trevor Siemian and Christian Hackenberg were traded for late round picks Brian Dawkins Jersey , but not Lynch. That is pretty damning in my opinion.I assumed the Broncos would at least get a conditional 7th round selection or something for Lynch, but guess not. Sucks letting a former first-round pick go without recouping any value in return but it is what it is. Glad to see Broncos GM John Elway admit his mistake and move on. This was the right move for the Broncos and I am glad they made it. As I wrote this morning, Elway’s comments about Lynch didn’t seem very encouraging so I wasn’t surprised to see this happen this morning. I am glad we can finally put the whole Lynch vs. Siemian era behind us and we can focus on Case Keenum and the intriguing Chad Kelly.
  2. for a last-minute visit with his family when the Kansas City Chiefs played the Atlanta Falcons in their second preseason game last week.He didn't get to see another shaky performance by their secondary until reporting to his new team.Now the veteran cornerback who spent nearly a decade with the Dallas Cowboys and was recently cut loose by the Washington Redskins will try to help patch it up. The Chiefs signed the 31-year-old Scandrick over the weekend in the hopes he can stabilize one of their biggest areas of need."I'm just trying to find my way around right now. I've only been here a few days Kelvin Harmon Washington Redskins Jersey ," he said with a smile Monday. "I'm doing a whole lot of listening and not a lot of talking."Scandrick won't have a whole lot of time to get up to speed. The Chiefs visit the Chicago Bears this weekend for their third preseason game, then have a quick turnaround before their preseason finale.Their regular-season opener is a mere three weeks away."After being in the league for 10 years, there's only so many coverages a team can run, only so many philosophies," He said. "I'm just trying to learn the terminology right now."Chiefs general manager Brett Veach has been a bit uncertain of his defensive backfield since the start of training camp, when they had Bashaud Breeland in for an extended visit. But Veach didn't pull the trigger on a veteran addition until signing Scandrick last week."You can't have enough corners, so Brett's kept his eyes open, brought a couple in," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "This one, he felt comfortable."Finances were a big part of it — the cash-strapped Chiefs would only owe him $1.5 million for the upcoming season — but so was were injuries and underwhelming performances early in camp.The Chiefs lost Daniel Sorensen for at least the start of the season after the safety broke a bone in his shin. They are also without cornerback Steven Nelson — expected to start opposite new arrival Kendall Fuller — after he sustained a concussion in their preseason opener.A lingering heel injury has forced Eric Berry to the sideline the past couple of weeks, and the trade of Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams this year has made a secondary that struggled last season potentially worse."The big thing for us is just communicating and being on the same page and at the end of the day, making plays on the ball," said Fuller, who arrived in the trade for Alex Smith. "As a DB, the more plays on the ball that you make, the better the opportunity you give your team to win."The Chiefs hope Scandrick can help make some of those plays. They hope Berry can, too.The perennial Pro Bowl safety missed almost all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon Kelvin Harmon Washington Redskins Jersey , but he appeared ahead of schedule in his recovery when he participated in the offseason program. Berry also was on the practice fields of Missouri Western State University for the start of training camp, which Chiefs fans took as a good omen for the upcoming season.Then he began sitting out practices with a heel injury. And so far, the injury has caused Berry to miss enough time that many are wondering whether there is something more serious afoot."I just don't want to go backward. That's what I don't want to do," Reid said between Monday's morning walk-through and an afternoon practice. "I'm OK with it. He's far enough long. ... I just have to monitor it and see where he's at. I'm comfortable where he's going with this thing."Notes: DL Allen Bailey (knee strain) and OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff (concussion) joined Nelson and Berry in sitting out Monday's practice. ... RB Charcandrick West participated in some of the workout for the first time in several weeks after dealing with a concussion. "He feels good. The docs say he's OK," Reid said. "We're in pads today, be helpful to see him move around." The final round of mock drafts!"It’s draft day and lying season is in full effect. The Redskins are reportedly not interested in trading for Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen, and people are questioning whether they will even pick Kyler Murray #1 overall. Dan Snyder and Bruce Allen are in charge of the draft and most Redskins fans are terrified of what crazyness can happen tonight. The national media is pushing this narrative while the local reporters are saying the Redskins could trade up, but would prefer not to.Missouri QB Drew Lock, Duke QB Daniel Jones, and Ohio State Dwayne Haskins are still popular options for the Redskins if they don’t trade for Rosen. Haskins has become the clear favorite for the Redskins as his draft day “slide” is already being reported. There is plenty of smoke about a trade up for Haskins, but no one really knows what the Redskins will do tonight. Fun!Should the Redskins still draft a QB in the 1st round?

  3. o always has the ears of his young teammates Clelin Ferrell Oakland Raiders Jersey , especially this week with a trip to Baltimore coming up.The Ravens (1-1) are a team Peko faced 22 times while anchoring the Cincinnati Bengals defensive line from 2006-16."Baltimore is a tough place to play," said Peko, who's coming off a spectacular game against the Raiders on Sunday. "I played there 11 years in a row in the AFC North and it's a tough division. The crowd is going to be loud as heck."Which makes it imperative for the Broncos (2-0) to get off to a fast start, Peko said.That's something they didn't do either on offense or defense in squeaking past the Raiders 20-19 ."You have to get after them early, show them you mean business, get that run stopped and you definitely have to get pressure on (Joe) Flacco because he can sit back there and he can throw the deep ball like the best of them," Peko said.Broncos fans need no reminder of that.Seared in their collective memory is Flacco heaving a 70-yard touchdown throw to Jacoby Jones with 31 seconds left in a divisional playoff game in 2013 that led to Baltimore's double-overtime upset of the top-seeded Broncos in Peyton Manning's first season in Denver."You definitely have to start fast against those guys," Peko said.Last week, the Broncos trailed 12-0 at halftime and 19-7 in the third quarter before rallying behind Case Keenum 's second straight fourth-quarter comeback.Coach Vance Joseph said this week that his cornerbacks played too soft in the first half, allowing Derek Carr to get too comfortable in completing 29 of 32 passes for a franchise-record 90.6 completion percentage.The Broncos also sputtered from the start on offense, going three-and-out on their first three drives while their most explosive player thus far — rookie running back Phillip Lindsay — cooled his cleats on the sideline.When Lindsay got into the game, he reeled off a 53-yard run on his first carry and finished as the first undrafted player in NFL history to eclipse 100 yards from scrimmage in his first two NFL games.At halftime, Joseph ordered defensive adjustments, taking away the huge cushions they were giving Oakland's receivers Cheap Clelin Ferrell Jersey , and the offense make its own corrections. Following six fruitless first-half possessions, the Broncos scored on all four of their second-half drives.In studying the Broncos, Harbaugh sees a familiar sight in Peko, who looks to him like every bit the thorn he was for the Ravens during his time with the Bengals."He's the same guy, just he's a hard-edge football player. Just lots and lots of respect for that guy," Harbaugh said. "I mean, he's physical, he's tough, plays super hard. I don't know how he's built but he's got a sixth sense for screens. He sniffs those things out like nobody's business. He always has."He's a screen wrecker. Just a very physical, very tough, very smart player and we've got a lot of respect for him."Joseph, who was on Marvin Lewis' staff in Cincinnati from 2014-15, agreed with Harbaugh's assessment that Peko hasn't lost a step at age 33."Being around Domata in Cincinnati, he's always been a guy that played with great energy — for a big guy Clelin Ferrell Oakland Raiders Jersey , to move like he does and to hold double-teams like he does, and obviously read screens like he does? He's a screen killer and he's been that way since I've known Domata," Joseph said. "He's a great locker room guy, a great team leader and he played really well last week."

Pro Football Focus had theirs today and from what I can see, the Raiders would come out with a..."With just two days to go, various publications are putting out their final mock draft of the year. Pro Football Focus had theirs today and from what I can see, the Raiders would come out with a pretty nice looking group of players should the draft fall the way Steve Palaszolo is predicting.First up, he is sticking with the top three of Kyler Murray to Arizona, Nick Bosa to San Francisco, and Josh Allen to the Jets. That’s been the most common top three in most mocks until recently when rumors have the Cardinals sticking with Josh Rosen and looking elsewhere with their top pick. This includes the LA Times live beat writer mock that had them taking Quinnen Williams number one overall. But in this mock draft...4. OAKLAND RAIDERS: DI QUINNEN WILLIAMS, ALABAMANotes: So, by some analysts’ estimates, the Raiders would be getting the best player in this draft at fourth overall. Even though it is not a position of need 2019 Cheap Clelin Ferrell Jersey , it’s hard to argue getting the best player available.24. OAKLAND RAIDERS: WR MARQUISE BROWN, OKLAHOMANotes: Marquise Brown is arguably the best receiver in this draft (though they have him as the third WR taken behind AJ Brown and DK Metcalf). He also happens to be perfect for what the Raiders need being that he can play the slot for now and potentially move outside as a deep threat in future.27. OAKLAND RAIDERS: EDGE CLELIN FERRELL, CLEMSONNotes: Are you kidding me? Getting Ferrell at this point looks like a steal. Almost seems entirely unrealistic, but I guess you just never really know. PFF has long been very high on Michigan’s Chase Winovich who they have going at 22 to the Ravens. That’s where many seem to have Ferrell coming off the board.35. OAKLAND RAIDERS: CB AMANI ORUWARIYE, PENN STATENotes: Notable layers still on the board in this mock who the Raiders pass on to draft Oruwariye include ED Montez Sweat, TE Noah Fant, S Taylor Rapp, G Chris Lindstrom, RB Josh Jacobs, and TE Irv Smith Jr. Follow @LeviDamien

    Broncos at Jets - Live Blog

    The Denver Broncos (2-2) are desperate for a win on the road against the New York Jets (1-3). The east coast has not been kind to the Broncos as they have a putrid road record when travelling to the eastern time zone.However Phillip Lindsay Jersey White , if they are going to steal a win on the east coast they should be able to do it against these Jets. Sam Darnold has not played well to start his career and his tendency to panic under pressure should give the Broncos defense some opportunities for the big play.Offensively, the Broncos currently sport the second longest streak of not scoring 30 points in a game at 18. They need a big offensive performance, if only get their confidence back on track. Case Keenum has struggled mightily to start the season, so he needs to start showing that he belongs.Broncos vs. Jets live updatesGame Info / Live UpdatesEverything we know Tweets from The Denver Broncos are the same record at this point in 2018 as they were in 2017, despite losing close games as opposed to being blown out like they were during the losing streak last year.In many ways Womens Phillip Lindsay Jersey , losing those games hurt even more, especially for players like Chris Harris Jr. “Definitely, especially for me,” Harris said after the game. “When I just can’t change the game and can’t affect the game, that’s what really frustrates me. When I can’t change the game and they’re kind of scheming like that. I want to make plays and help this team win. They just wouldn’t let me.”Harris is a shutdown corner and teams know it. Against the Houston Texans John Elway Jersey White , I can think of two plays where Deshaun Watson went the man Harris was covering. That kind of respect was something I haven’t seen since Champ Bailey saw his side of the field targeted once or twice a game.For Harris, being out there doing his job and not seeing opportunities to make a big play come his way is even more frustrating for him. “It’s frustrating. When you lose and you know you’re capable of beating this team. We had them. I pride myself in being able to make game-changing plays and being able to change the game. It’s just like last year. I’m just kind of out there. It feels like last year for me.”The defense held the Texans to 19 points, but that wasn’t enough. They gave up one very easy touchdown pass and rather than blame the offense for only scoring 17 points, Harris is looking at the one play as the play they (the defense) just had to make and didn’t.“We just have a small [margin for] error. We can’t mess up too much. We can’t just give people easy touchdowns when they’re double-teamed. We just can’t do stuff like that. We’ve got to play smarter football, cleaner football. That’s going to give us the chance to win. Those good teams Womens Royce Freeman Jersey , those games today, they pull those out.”The play in question was one where Justin Simmons put himself in poor position for the easy touchdown catch in what should have been double-coverage. Even though the Broncos defense played a good game, this play is the one Harris can’t let go of. It’s the little mistakes that are costing this team on both sides of the ball and the wins are not going to come any time soon if they don’t clean this up.

Pavely-USA TODAY SportsComing into a coaching position which was once held by a man held in very high acclaim, like John Mitchell, can be difficult. But that was the exact situation Karl Dunbar saw himself in last season after Mike Tomlin decided to promote Mitchell to assistant coach Anthony Chickillo Jersey , and hired Dunbar to take over as heir to the defensive line throne.For players like Cameron Heyward, Stephon Tuitt and Javon Hargrave, Mitchell was all they’ve known since entering the NFL. But that doesn’t mean Dunbar didn’t do the job and create a new standard for the players who fall under his tutelage. In fact, veteran defensive tackle Stephon Tuitt was more than pleased with how Dunbar handled him and the entire Steelers’ defensive line.“He [Dunbar] demanded me to be a great player,” Tuitt told Teresa Varley of “To be confident to know you are a great player. He has a whole different style than Coach Mitchell. Coach Mitchell brought a lot of great stuff out in me. Coach Dunbar brought out some different stuff. At the end of the day he taught me skills that pertain to what I have naturally, and helped me heighten those skills. Skills like hand usage. The ability to understand protection. The ability to understand formations. My hips. Things like that. To be able to play faster from those.”Tuitt realizes he still has a ton of things he can improve upon to become an even more dominant player.“It can always be better, but I had a tremendous amount of growth last year and I am excited about that Mike Hilton Jersey ,” said Tuitt. “I grew in new ways that they wanted me to, new ways of me discovering things about myself to become the player I can be.”Where can Tuitt continue to improve? How about not just getting to plays, but making plays? Sounds crazy, but Tuitt believes he is just a step away from really wrecking the opposition.“All of the defensive linemen, we joke about me,” said Tuitt. “I get there right before the quarterback is ready to throw the ball. It’s just understanding what I need to do to get there faster. Taking the next step to get there. I am there. I am always there. I just need to get there faster.“You can make the impact play. You stop the drive, stop the offense at the line of scrimmage. The ability to stop them. The ability to be confident in what you are doing. The ability to be faster. That is the key.”Throughout the interview Joe Haden Jersey , possibly the best aspect was when Tuitt described getting a sack at the NFL level, and dominating those opposite him.“It’s a lot of hard work trying to get a sack,” said Tuitt. “It’s the offensive line’s job not to allow you to get a sack. When you get one it’s like you are taking away from what they are getting paid to do. When you get in the quarterback’s head, and the person who is getting paid to stop you from getting there, that is an exhilarating feeling. That is like I am dominating you and I am going to keep dominating.” In case there was any doubt, the Steelers have now made it official: Le'Veon Bell is not playing for them, or anyone else Vance McDonald Jersey , in 2018.Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert issued a statement on Bell, the franchise running back who has not signed his tender, as soon as the deadline for him to sign it passed at 4 p.m. Eastern today.“I want to confirm that Le鈥橵eon Bell did not sign his Franchise Tender today and, as a result, he will not be eligible to play football during the 2018 season,” Colbert said in the statement.That almost certainly ends Bell’s career with the Steelers. He’s expected to sign with some other team in free agency in 2019, and the Steelers will move on without him. Thanks to the outstanding play of James Conner this season Tyson Alualu Jersey , they haven’t missed, and if anything they may be glad that Bell didn’t sign his franchise tag, which saved the team $14.5 million.
  6. understood by anyone who hasn’t made a study out of it.The 5 O’Clock Club: Explaining how compensatory draft picks work (Updated 25 Feb)It’s a ‘secret’ system that the league owners administer for themselves.However Mason Foster Jersey , through close observation over a number of years, certain people have created a set of rules that seem to explain how the system works and are able to project compensatory picks annually with great accuracy.While OverTheCap didn’t figure out the rules, they have written extensively about the Compensatory Draft Pick system, and they publish a “Cancellation Chart” each season to help readers understand which teams are likely to receive compensatory picks.If you find yourself curious about how it all works, I suggest that you follow these links for in-depth discussion: of Compensatory Picks from 2015 onwardToday, OverTheCap published their annual projection of compensatory draft picks, and the article contained a small unwelcome surprise for Redskins fans.The Redskins currently are projected to have 8 draft picks to be exercised in the April draft (after the allocation of compensatory draft picks following the annual Spring League Meeting).This is a bit of a surprise because most people were expecting Washington to be awarded four compensatory picks, bringing them to a total of 9 picks to be used in April. While the Redskins will probably qualify for the maximum of four compensatory picks, only 32 picks are allocated by the league annually, and OverTheCap projects the Redskins to lose their “fourth” pick (the expected 7th rounder associated with Niles Paul) to the 32-pick limit.Now, OTC is good — not perfect — at projecting compensatory picks.Here’s what OTC, themselves, have to say about the formula:As I said Samaje Perine Jersey , OTC isn’t flawless at projecting compensatory picks — they often miss a projection every year or two — but they’re pretty damned good.The one encouraging thing for Redskins fans is that the team’s 4th projected pick (the one connected to Niles Paul) is listed as the 33rd pick, making it the first one cut off after the 32-pick limit.If OTC has made a mistake in the projection that would move a player/team up the list, then the Redskins, based on the OTC chart, would be the most likely beneficiary.I wouldn’t get my hopes up.It looks like that late 7th round pick isn’t going to materialize.The good news is that OTC expects the NFL to award three compensatory picks to the Redskins:3rd round pick - Kirk Cousins5th round pick - Trent Murphy6th round pick - Ryan GrantThese three picks should supplement the 5 picks that the Redskins currently hold:1st round2nd round3rd round5th round7th roundThe Redskins currently-expected ten picks in the 2019 draft should look like this:Round 1 - 15th overallRound 2 - 46th overallRound 3 - 76th overallRound 3 - compensatoryRound 4 - traded to Packers for HaHa Clinton-DixRound 5 - 15th pick in the roundRound 5 - compensatoryRound 6 - Selected Adonis Alexander in 2018 supplemental draftRound 6 - compensatoryRound 7 - 13th pick in the round Let the legal tampering begin!"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Looks Like Someone Has A Sixpack Of The MondaysDaily SlopRedskins RecapsEDTShareTweetShareShareNFL Legal Tampering Begins!

Just hours after learning they would be trading left guard Kelechi Osemele to the Jets, they re-signed defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins on a 2-year deal according to ESPN’s Adam schefter.While Osemele’s departure creates a gaping hole at left guard, re-signing Hankins fills one. It completes the defensive tackle rotation for the team. After signing with the Raiders following week one of last season, Hankins started every game at the nose tackle spot.

Abram is a bruiser in the defensive secondary, and has been widely panned as the best safety available in the draft this season. Abram was an Associated Press third team All-American his senior season. According to ProFootballFocus, Abram allowed a passer rating of just 43.6 when he was in coverage during the 2018 season, the best among all safeties in the SEC. The selection of Abram wraps up the Raiders three first round picks, and addresses three of the team’s main needs at EDGE Cheap Trayvon Mullen Jersey , running back and in the defensive backfield.

  8. and that they explored the veteran quarterback market Denver Broncos General Manager John Elway spoke to the media on Saturday night after the team announced their roster moves and their 53-man roster. The big question everyone wanted to know was why the Broncos kept former first-round pick Su’a Cravens Jersey , Paxton Lynch. Elway answered these questions but his answer shouldn’t make Paxton Lynch very comfortable. If you listened to Elway’s answer as to why the Broncos kept Paxton Lynch, it wasn’t a ringing endorsement for his former first-round pick. He basically said the only reason Lynch was not cut yesterday was because that Chad Kelly is an inexperienced backup and they want some experience behind Keenum.Again, I read this as the only reason Paxton Lynch is here is that it is convenient. He has some starting experience, can serve as the “experienced backup’ and he knows the playbook. The most damning part for Lynch was Elway’s admittance that they have talked to some veteran quarterbacks and tried to bring them in. However, Elway stated the ones that they’re interested in wanted to wait before signing. If you read between the lines, it doesn’t bode well for Lynch. It sounds like they tried moving on but couldn’t get anything moving so decided to stick with Lynch out of convenience. Is it possible Lynch sticks as the number three? Sure. However, I wouldn’t be shocked if we saw some movement here either later today after waiver additions were announced or later in the year. So what do you think MHR? Did you get a similar vibe or do you think Lynch’s spot is safe going forward?

He’s a 6’6”, 295lb defensive lineman who is considered one of the more intriguing prospects in the entire draft.Tillery played a total of four seasons at Notre Dame and turned into one of their best defensive players during that span. During his four-year career at Notre Dame, TIllery totaled 133 tackles, 23 tackles for a loss, 12.5 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles. This past season, Tillery totaled 28 tackles Connor McGovern Jersey , 8.5 tackles for a loss, 7 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.Currently, Tillery is recovering from a torn labrum in his shoulder. He played the final games of the season at Notre Dame with this injury as well as participating at the Combine with the injury. That puts his already impressive numbers into perspective. Tillery is likely to be a mid to late first-round pick who could maybe slide into day two, but that 15 to 40 range is likely where he goes. This means the Broncos would either have to trade up back into the first-round for him or trade back into the later portions of the first-round to get him. I’d assume the trade back option is the more likely scenario here. Tillery would give the Broncos something they currently do not have on their roster. That is a legit pocket pusher/interior pass rusher. Shelby Harris is great and can do this as well, but doesn’t have the interior pass rush upside that Tillery has. The Broncos haven’t had a player like this ever since Malik Jackson bolted to Jacksonville during free agency a few years back. I really like TIllery’s upside, especially on a team that has Vic Fangio and Bill Kollar on their defensive coaching staff.

    Darrius Heyward-Bey and Morgan Burnett

    Vince Williams Jerome Bettis Jersey , Darrius Heyward-Bey and Morgan Burnett all inactive for Steelers in Week 5 The Pittsburgh Steelers injury report has once again had a significant impact on the list of inactives for Sunday, with all the of the players designated as doubtful on Friday among the names sitting against the Atlanta Falcons. Vince Williams will miss a game for the first time in his professional career because of an injury, snapping a streak of 83 consecutive regular season games played. Morgan Burnett misses out for third time in his short Steelers career as he continues to struggle with a groin problem and Darrius Heyward-Bey sits for the first time this season due to an ankle issue. With Heyward-Bey sidelined Justin Hunter get a rare chance to dress.Despite his elbow injury, Mike Hilton will still play against the Falcons and should be even easier to spot on defense wearing a brace on his arm. Despite missing a day of practice on Thursday, Marcus Gilbert looks good versus the Falcons.For Mason Rudolph, Zach Banner, Marcus Allen and L.T. Walton, it is just another normal Sunday on the inactive list, with none of them expected to suit up on game day without an injury to one of the names ahead of them on depth chart. Recently promoted cornerback Brian Allen is active in his first Sunday on the 53-man roster. I like the NFL’s decision to allow coaches to challenge plays involving pass interference. What I don’t like is the automatic reviews of such plays inside of two minutes."Rejoice! For the second year in a row, a Steelers season that was totally compromised thanks to an official’s blunder was retroactively corrected by a rule change. Actually, they don’t do that in the NFL—in any sports league, really. But one year after making a reception more about common sense and less about “surviving the ground,” the NFL announced last week that pass interference penalties James Conner Jersey , along with the ones that perhaps should have been called but weren’t, will be subject to replay review. This change, one that is on a one-year probationary period for the 2019 season, was made official at the annual owner’s meeting where the league’s competition committee also gathers each and every spring to bring us new rules that always seem to come a few months too late. In case you haven’t studied the new rule, it will allow coaches to challenge plays where pass interference may or may not have been called. The good part of this rule—in my humble opinion, at least—is there won’t be an extra “Pass Interference Flag” provided for coaches to use in such situations. No. Instead, Mike Tomlin and his colleagues will be forced to burn one of the two challenge flags they get each game for things like catches. Say, it’s early in the first quarter, and the Saints just had an initial drive kept alive by an egregious pass interference call on Joe Haden. Would Tomlin want to use one of his challenge flags right then and there, or would he want to save his challenges for a more critical time later on? It adds an additional element to an already intriguing part of game-day strategy—to challenge, or not to challenge: that is the question.I like it. Hey, you want to challenge pass interference—a rule that is a total judgement call? Fine. To be clear, I think it should be subject to review. Too many games have been altered one way or another because of these total judgement calls. However , the last thing the NFL needs is for EVERY questionable pass interference call—or non-call—to be subject to review. It’s one thing for every defensive back to have to hold his breath after each and every incomplete pass. It’s quite another for the officials to have to do the same...not to mention the fans. And this is where I have a problem with part of the new replay rule for pass interference. Picture this: New Orleans is facing a fourth and two. There are less than two minutes to go in the fourth quarter. If the Steelers hold here, it’s game over. Drew Brees drops back, but his quick pass over the middle is broken up by Joe Haden. You hold your breath. I hold my breath. Is there any yellow coming into view? No. Whew! Sean Payton is out of challenges. Unfortunately, since it’s inside of two minutes, the quick pass over the middle that admitedly was close, is now subject to automatic review by the officials. If the no call is turned into pass interference, well, Pittsburgh’s season is essentially screwed. I know what you’re going to say. Yes, the Steelers may have actually benefited from this exact scenario last December, when Haden was called for pass interference (his second very questionable flag of the day) with precious little time left in the fourth quarter and the Steelers clinging to a four-point lead. Had the automatic booth review already been in place, Pittsburgh may have won this critical Week 16 contest and, ultimately, the AFC North. You may be right Womens Terrell Edmunds Jersey , and I get that. Heck, the entire reason this new rule was put into place has very little to do with the Steelers, and everything to do with the Saints who were royally screwed out of an almost certain Super Bowl berth when the officials kept their flags in their pockets during an egregious pass interference play against the Rams in the waning seconds of the NFL title game. Don’t I want those kinds of calls reversed? Sure I do. However, I don’t want every single incomplete pass subject to review inside of two minutes. Unless I’m missing something here, that is exactly what you could have with this new rule. Again, pass interference is a judgement call. And while some calls—or non-calls—may be egregious, do we really want to sit around and wait for officials to use their best judgement after every pass that may or may not have drawn a flag inside of two minutes? I don’t.NFL, save your automatic reviews for things like catches. As for those pass interference flags that should or shouldn’t have been called, force those coaches to challenge them—even inside of two minutes.

  11. Cheap Maxx Crosby Jersey , Raiders QB Derek Carr tweetd at UFC and Dana White about fighting a couple TV personalities. Something seemingly quite out of character for the usual “Golly gee, you know me” quarterback.So, what happened to make Carr go off the rails in fury and talking about wanting to fight TV personalities with whom he claims he pays no mind?This is what happened: Jon Gruden was asked at the Senior Bowl whether he thinks Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray’s height is an issue to which Gruden had this to say:“I used to think that a lot until I saw Drew Brees twice a year in Tampa. And then I met Russell Wilson coming out of NC State. And now I’m watching this kid Murray at Oklahoma and I am putting away all the prototypes that I once had. I used to have a prototype for hand size, height, arm length, all that stuff. We’re looking for guys that can play and do a lot of different things and they come in all shapes and sizes nowadays.”Seemed like a pretty generic response that was simply praising fine play by shorter quarterbacks, much like Gruden was known for doing (and often criticized for) during his years on his QB camp show. But Max Kellerman chose to read into that as saying Gruden was going to move on from Carr Vontaze Burfict Jersey , in part because Carr “didn’t want it.”That’s what prompted Derek Carr’s response. He wasn’t done though.Carr went on to say that Kellerman and co-host Stephen A Smith are just mad because he blocked them on twitter “for talking trash about our team,” adding that he “Would love to actually sit and break down film with these two on tv just to show their viewers how incompetent (lacking qualification) they are about our game.”Stephen A Smith responded accepting Carr’s challenge. The one about coming on the show, not the one about the fight in the octagon.They say any publicity is good publicity. I’m sure the First Take guys are loving the publicity they are getting from being able to get under Derek Carr’s skin. And I’m sure a lot of Raiders fans love Carr’s response. I don’t think it’s a good look for Derek. He is supposed to be above this kind of nonsense. Getting so mad you make several threatening tweets at TV hot take artists only makes people wonder if they struck a nerve. But at least it’s the offseason. Let’s just hope we’re not still talking about this in August.Follow @LeviDamien Salary cap can always be manipulated. Al Davis taught us that. There’s always ways to clear cap room without the players involved losing any money. Case in point; what a few Raiders players did this week.According to, the 2019 roster bonus numbers for these players are a bit different than Yates lays out here. Jordy Nelson’s is $4.1 million and Lee Smith’s is $1.35 million. The Raiders had some $5.2 million in cap space available this season with which to make these moves and with one game, they don’t need to save it to sign anyone else. Had they had more, they may have done the same with other players as well.So, what does this mean for the 2019 cap?It doesn’t mean much in terms of saving on the cap next year. Cap rollover would have just moved the remaining 2018 cap to 2019 anyway. What it does is offer the players some security to get their bonuses now. It signals that the Raiders have every intention of brining back Tahir Whitehead Seth Roberts Jersey , Kyle Wilber, Nelson, and Smith.Thee Raiders didn’t need to add any relief to the 2019 cap. They already have a surplus of $78.72 million in projected cap space, which is the fifth most in the NFL for 2019, so they’ll be just fine.Follow @LeviDamien

Could the Denver Broncos go for him in the 2019 NFL Draft? NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Edge Rusher Justin HollinsStephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY SportsThe Denver Broncos selected edge rusher Justin Hollins in the fifth round. Here is our draft profile on the new Broncos draft pick. At most positions I’ll be the first to tell you that athletic testing is a bit overrated. Orlando Brown is proof that you don’t need to be a great athlete to be a good tackle, for example. That simply isn’t the case at Edge rusher, where numbers matter a great deal. The tape is critically important, but it’s wise to look at some of the shorts and t-shirt numbers when you decide to throw darts at the wall.A few numbers I pay close attention to:-40 time, specifically the 10 yard split.-Vertical leap-Broad jump-3 cone drillI tend to wait until the Combine before I start to really dig into edge rushers. There’s always going to be exceptions where a prospect is simply too darn technical or explosive to ignore, but I try to use my time on other positions ‘til I know if a guy’s got the tools.Needless to say, Justin Hollins has the tools. Even better, he has the production to back it up, with 14 sacks, 36 tackles for a loss, 7 forced fumbles and 8 batted passes during his 3 years starting for the ducks. He’ll need seasoning, but the 6’5 240 lb Hollins would be a great developmental prospect for Fangio’s Broncos. Scouting Report:-Sudden. He’s an explosive athlete with good lateral mobility.-Slippery. -Will threaten to tackles off the snap. -Looks comfortable with pass drops. You can sleep easy if he’s in space.-There are better prospects at bending the edge.-Hands could get better. Will need to develop more rush moves. -Needs to get stronger.What I’ve heard/readNFL Draft & Combine Profile - Justin Hollins | NFL.comJustin Hollins EDGE Oregon - Draft Player Profile | The Draft NetworkNFL scout and a draft expert evaluate Oregon Ducks LB Justin Hollins12 draft prospects who need to stand out at the scouting combine | Touchdown Wire | Page 2Hollins has a lot of traits that can’t be taught. Why he fitsI had this to say about the Broncos need for edge depth. While Jeff Holland should improve under the new coaching staff’s tutelage, it’s foolhardy to count on the current pass rushers behind the star duo. While I’ve long hoped Elway would kick the tires on former Bear Aaron Lynch, the draft is probably the best place to find long term help on the edge. Justin Hollins fits what the Broncos should look for in developmental pass rushers to a T. He’s very long, incredibly athletic, and he’s versatile enough to thrive in the Fangio system.Hollins with a good armover to disrupt the pocket.Why he doesn’tAt least early on he’ll be a liability against the run and powerful tackles that can stonewall him. His rush moves are pretty rudimentary and his handwork in general needs work. Final thoughtsHollins isn’t a finished product, not by any means. I doubt he’ll be the guy to threaten a rookie sack record. But he’s one of the more freakish athletes in this extremely loaded defensive line group and a guy that could blossom into an elite role player with Fangio guiding the way.

Report: Broncos had a pre-draft visit with Iowa tight end, Noah FantJeffrey Becker-USA TODAY SportsWe are a little late on this Menelik Watson Jersey , but according to reports, the Denver Broncos had a pre-draft visit with former Iowa tight end, Noah Fant earlier this week. Fant is a 6’4”, 249lb tight end who is considered one of, it not the best tight ends in the entire draft. He’s also considered one of the best overall prospects in the entire draft. What makes him considered one of these top prospects is his elite athleticism. At 6’4” and nearly 250lbs, he ran a 4.5 40-time during the NFL Scouting Combine. He also jumped 39.5 inches, and a ran the 3-cone drill in 6.81 seconds. Fant played a total of three seasons at Iowa and was a productive tight end during that time. During his three-year career at Iowa, Fant totaled 78 receptions for 1,083 yards, and 19 touchdowns. This past year, he totaled 39 receptions for 519 yards, and 7 touchdowns. The Broncos have a big need at the tight end position. They currently have Jeff Heuerman and 2018 draft pick Troy Fumagalli on the roster. Neither are really starting caliber talent nor have the receiving ability and potential that Fant has. Fant is your modern day tight end. He can play outside, in the slot, inline, and in the backfield. He’s not really a blocker, but he is a big-time matchup problem for defenses. He’s too fast for most linebackers and safeties to handle one on one and is too big and physical for cornerbacks to handle one on one. He can also out run pretty much all of them in the open field. He’s a freak.The tight end figures to be a feature of the Broncos offense going forward with Offensive Coordinator Rich Scangarello bringing the Kyle Shanahan offense to Denver. We all saw what they did with George Kittle in that offense and likely will try to replicate that here in Denver with someone. Could that someone be Noah Fant? It’s possible.If the Broncos want Noah Fant, they may have to take him at 10th overall or maybe trade back a few spots to get him. I know that might be a tad early for a tight end, but with the importance of the tight end position in this offense I would be okay with it.Both Iowa tight ends are in play for the Broncos in my opinion. T.J. Hockenson is a more traditional tight end but is also equally freaky as an athlete. He’s a dominant blocker who is also a weapon in the passing game. Meanwhile, Noah Fant is the freaky athlete/matchup problem for opposing defenses. Both would instantly upgrade the Broncos offense and should be play for the 10th overall pick.
  13. PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mike Tomlin doesn’t want to say Antonio Brown bailed on the Pittsburgh Steelers.The longtime head coach is not ruling it out either.The star wide receiver went radio silent in the days before the team’s regular-season finale against Cincinnati last Sunday Mike Wagner Jersey , in essence abandoning the club in what Tomlin described as its “darkest hour.”Though Brown did make a cameo appearance on the sideline — rocking a fur coat — as the Steelers edged the Bengals , he vanished before the final gun and did not show up on Monday for exit interviews and to clear out his locker.Tomlin said Brown arrived at practice last Wednesday reporting discomfort in his lower body. The team gave Brown the day off, did so again on Thursday. On Friday, Tomlin sent Brown home to rest and suggested he get an MRI on the banged up knee.Tomlin did not hear from Brown on Saturday to get an update. When Drew Rosenhaus, Brown’s agent, reached out on Sunday morning to tell Tomlin that Brown was available to play, Tomlin “drew a line in the sand” and said Brown could best serve the Steelers by cheering on the sideline.While Tomlin demurred when asked during his season-ending news conference on Wednesday if Brown “quit,” the longtime head coach offered little in defense of the perennial Pro Bowler, whose historic production has become increasingly at odds with his erratic off-the-field behavior.“The bottom line is we were playing a significant game and he didn’t do a good enough job of communicating of being available in the hours leading up to that performance,” Tomlin said.“So we needed to make decisions pertinent to getting to play in that performance. So, I’ve been real clear at outlining what transpired, the level of communication, things of that nature. Obviously there are some things within that that you can infer Rocky Bleier Jersey , certainly.”Rather than spend time elaborating on how the Steelers went from 7-2-1 the week before Thanksgiving to 9-6-1 and missing the postseason for the first time since 2013 — a collapse Tomlin plans to “wallow” in over the next few weeks — he spent the majority of his time responding to questions about Brown.It’s nothing new. The 30-year-old is the only player in NFL history with six straight 100-catch seasons, but has become adept at drawing headlines for things that have nothing to do with football, be it livestreaming from the postgame locker room in Kansas City two years ago to threatening a reporter from ESPN on social media in September to suggesting on Twitter he should be traded .It hasn’t stopped. As Tomlin spoke, Brown — who has three years remaining on his four-year, $72 million extension he signed in the spring of 2017 — published a post on Instagram to his 3.1 million followers saying “I am divinely blessed with free will. I utilize that gift, choosing to take charge of my life.” Brown also appeared with former teammate James Harrison, who promised an exclusive “interview” with Brown.Tomlin has long had a policy of trying to tune out what his players say or do on social media, but admitted there’s a level of “disappointment” when it comes to Brown’s actions before adding it’s immaterial to his job.Asked if there’s a point with Brown or any player where the distractions can outweigh the on-the-field benefits, Tomlin said “certainly.”Whether the Steelers are at that point is unclear. Tomlin said the team has not received any “formal” trade requests from Brown’s camp.Tomlin declined to get into what punishment Brown may face in the future, saying the club is still gathering information. Tomlin does believe that Brown was dealing with some type of injury, but added to his knowledge that Brown has not undergone the MRI.“Like we do in all circumstances, we will deal with it appropriately and deal with it in-house,” Tomlin said.Brown’s future status is just one of a number of questions the Steelers will face over the next few months Joe Gilliam Jersey , starting with the coaching staff. The defense and special teams both had critical missteps this season and offensive line coach Mike Munchak is in the mix for several open head coaching positions.“When you lack success, when you fail, change is a part of it,” Tomlin said. “We talk about it. As a staff we talk about it. As players, in exit meetings. That’s just our business.”So lately, has been addressing the perpetual drama surrounding one of the NFL’s most talented and mercurial players.With the Steelers’ season upon us, time to review the Community Guidelines With the start of the Pittsburgh Steelers season less than a week away, the return of dormant members (wake up sleepy heads) and the occasional “long time reader first time poster”, we here at BTSC felt iwas necessary to take a look at those pesky guidelines which myself, along with fellow moderators Mike Frazier, Nick Martin, 58Steel, PaVaSteeler and last but certainly not least SNW Terry Bradshaw Jersey , will try and uphold.

  14. the NFC East Cities by Music TalentSo Dexter Manley Jersey , Kenny Meringolo and I have been texting a bunch lately and he asked if I wanted to come back and do some semi-regular writing on HH. I do miss this HTTR community, so I happily obliged (if you all don’t mind my horrible grammar and spelling mistakes despite my thirteen proofreads). I’ve been keeping busy doing a lot of concert blogging and photography, so I thought a good, barely still off-season post segue would be talking music about the three awesome, party cities in our division and Dallas.So, which NFC East city has produced the best music? Before I even did my research, I knew D.C. was going to be stretched to win this. Off the top of my head, the Giants have Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, and Frank Sinatra. How can you top that? I assumed Dallas would have a ton of country mega stars I’d dig up, but that was not the case. They do represent Vanilla Ice, Nick Jonas Cole Holcomb Washington Redskins Jersey , and Ashley Simpson though!! That’s Ken’s dream concert right there. I knew Philly was stacked, but I didn’t realize how stacked they were. Naturally, doing an article like this is trying to make a very subjective topic objective, but it beats another way-too-f’n-early preseason, power rankings post where the Redskins are annually disrespected, right? Eh?To set some boundaries, the Giants play in N.J. and are the five boroughs are out. To anyone that grew up in D.C., the punk scene and go-go music was revolutionary. That was evident when Bad Brains made the final cut for the Hall of Fame two years ago (with MC5) but got denied. What? However, Chuck Brown and Bad Brains are bands most people have never heard of outside of D.C. and that’s an unfortunate reality. So, I’ll just present the list and a poll and let’s have at it in the comments. I imagine I missed a few bands so feel free to let me know. So, things get a bit foggy when musicians live in a city for a few years then move. Dave Grohl was born in Ohio, but his formative years were going to punk shows at the old 9:30 Club in Chinatown and deciding to leave Bishop Ireton High School to become a rocker. For that reason Cole Holcomb Washington Redskins Jersey , and his mom still living in Alexandria, VA, and him recording several Foo albums in D.C, we can claim him. What was news to me was that Bo Diddley bought a house in NE D.C. and recorded music there for ten years. Also of note, The Doors, Jim Morrison, was a brat living in D.C. for over four years doing two years elementary school in Fairfax, VA, and two and half years high school in Alexandria, VA. Mr Mojo Risin gets an asterisk because he’s still 100% California to me.Philly though is just so damn impressive. The Roots, Joan Jett, Patti Labelle Cole Holcomb Jersey 2019 , and Hall & Oates. Eclectic to the max. Florida has hired Torrian Gray as its cornerbacks coach, bringing him back to Gainesville to replace Charlton Warren.Warren left the Gators to take a similar position at rival Georgia.Gray, who has 19 years of coaching experience, worked at Florida during the 2016 season. He spent the last two years with the NFL’s Washington Redskins before being fired in January.Gray has helped developed a number of NFL defensive backs at the collegiate level, including former Florida standouts Duke Dawson, Marcus Maye, Jalen Tabor and Quincy Wilson. He also worked with Brandon Flowers, Kam Chancellor, Kyle Fuller and Kendall Fuller at Virginia Tech.Gray has familiarity with Florida’s defense, having played for current Gators coordinator Todd Grantham for four seasons with the Hokies.Coach Dan Mullen says Gray “brings a high level of familiarity with our program and the Southeastern Conference.”Mullen still has to replace defensive line coach Sal Sunseri, who left to join Alabama’s staff.
  15. Dwayne Haskins Cheap Dwayne Haskins Jersey , QBSchool: Ohio St | Conference: Big TenCollege Experience: Redshirt Sophomore | Age: 21Height / Weight: 6-3 / 220 lbsProjected Draft Status: 1st roundNFL Comparison: Alex SmithCollege StatisticsPlayer SummaryDwayne Haskins finished his 2018 season with the Buckeyes as Big Ten Champions and a Heisman Trophy Finalist. He set OSU and Big Ten records for most passing yards in a season (4,580) and passing TDs in a season (47). Haskins would probably be best suited to stay at Ohio State for another season, but with a weak QB class this year and Urban Meyer retiring, I think he’ll declare and end up being a first round selection. Haskins has natural abilities as a thrower. He works well in the pocket and when given time is accurate to all three levels down the field. The key words there is given time; Haskins is 2nd best in the nation with a passer rating of 134.4 when given a clean pocket. Because of his size, accuracy, and Urban Meyer tutelage, I’d compare him to Alex Smith, just with a bigger arm.StrengthsAccuracy, especially on intermediate throws. According to PFF, Haskins had a 77.9 adjusted completion percentage this season. He had an almost 6:1 touchdown to INT ratio, only throwing 8 interceptions on the season.Mobility in the pocket. Showed a natural ability to slide in the pocket while maintaining vision down the field.Arm strength. While he isn’t the most accurate passer in CFB down the field, I have yet to see a throw he cannot make when his mechanics are together.Half-field processing. Excelled in the scheme and showed a quick ability to read half field defenses.WeaknessesInexperience. Haskins is young and generally untested Wholesale Dwayne Haskins Jersey , only starting 1 season for the Buckeyes.Mechanics on deep throws. His footwork can be sloppy causing inconsistencies on deep throws.Scheme. The con that always comes along with QBs who excel in a “system” is can they continue to excel in a more complex, pro-style offense that requires a full-field progressions rather than a single read down the field.Pressure. He thrived under generally clean pocket conditions, but how will he handle the pass rush at the next level. Especially if he is a high draft choice and ends up on a squad with a less than stellar offensive line.Media More Dwyane Haskins videosGrades:Size: 9/10Has prototypical size for an NFL QB. Is tall enough to see the field and thick enough to take a hit.Accuracy: 9/10Haskins was 5th in the nation this season with a 70.2% completion percentage. He can make all the throws when his mechanics are together. He was the 2nd most efficient passer in the nation with a clean pocket. However his mechanics can be sloppy at times, which I believe can be cleaned up.Arm Strength: 13/15You’ll hear a lot of people talk about Haskins as a natural arm talent. He can make all the throws, throw from different platforms, and can make up for lower body mechanical issues with his arm.Mobility: 8.5/10Haskins is different from some of the QBs Ohio State has had in the past. He is not a mobile quarterback, but a quarterback with mobility. Ability to feel pressure and slide in the pocket grew as the season went along. He can take off and run when he needs to, and isn’t shy of contact, but it’s not what he’s looking to do.Processing Speed: 12/15Haskins has shown to be very good at half field reads. He got better throughout the season in recognizing and looking off coverage. However, he was not asked to read a full field very often in Ohio State’s offense. This inexperience in reps and scheme could make for a steep learning curve at the next level.Mechanics: 7/10It is surprising to me how accurate Haskins is with how bad his mechanics are sometimes (which just goes to show what a natural arm talent he is). The good news is he shows the ability to put it all together at times, making it more likely a by product of inexperience. He has a tendency to not set his feet properly causing inaccuracies and problems with velocity especially on down field throws. His mechanics suffer against pressure as well, which is to be somewhat expected from such a young QB.Leadership: 10/15The sentiment throughout the season is that Haskins was growing into being a vocal leader. He has always been a lead by example guy Dwayne Haskins Redskins Jersey , but is starting to come into his own as a vocal leader, which will be important if he is thrown into a starting role as a rookie. Clutch: 11/15Haskins excelled on the biggest stage he played in, putting up 396 yards and 6 touchdowns on then #4 Michigan. However he can be rattle by the rush. Ohio State’s schemes bailed him out of a few situations, so it is yet to be seen how he’ll handle that going forward.Overall: 79.5/100How He’d Fit on the RedskinsThe Redskins are in obvious need for a QB. With Alex Smith’s uncertain future of playing again, the Redskins need to be thinking about a new QB going forward. Seeing how the Redskins will most likely be continuing with Jay Gruden for at least the near future, I think Haskins is a great fit. If Smith is able to come back, it would be an excellent situation for Haskins, as he could take a year or two and learn behind Smith. However even if Smith isn’t able to play (which seems like the likely scenario at this point), he could be a valuable resource for Haskins to learn from in the film room. In fact, the Redskins could even consider bringing back current starter Josh Johnson (to the dismay of San Diego Fleet fans), to go along with Haskins. It’s looking more and more likely that Haskins will the first QB to come off the board, especially with Justin Herbert returning for his senior year. I think it would be a huge mistake to try and reach for him Geron Christian Jersey , but if he does fall to the Redskins, they shouldn’t hesitate to take him.
