  1. are stacking up the victories and that’s what matters most to them.As for the aesthetics Youth Allen Robinson Jerseys , they’ll keep working on that.“We need to make improvements,” Brady said. “I think the more we’re on the field, the more we can practice, the more we can figure out where everyone fits and what we’re doing a good job at in general, those things start to sort themselves out. … But I’d certainly take building on the wins rather than losing games.”Brady threw for three touchdowns and the Patriots hung on to beat the Chicago Bears 38-31 Sunday when Kevin White got stopped at the 1 on a 54-yard pass from Mitchell Trubisky.The Patriots (5-2) won their fourth straight following a 1-2 start. Coming off a 43-40 win over Kansas City, New England came out on top when a swarming defense prevented White from crossing the goal line after he hauled in a heave from Trubisky on the final play.That gave Chicago (3-3) its second loss in a row after winning three straight to grab sole possession of the NFC North lead.Here are some things to know:INJURIES ADDING UPAlready missing five-time Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots might also have to get by without promising rookie running back Sony Michel.He lost a fumble and had to be helped from the field after he was twisted around while getting tackled by Bilal Nichols on the first play of the second quarter. In the previous three games, Michel rushed for 316 yards and four touchdowns.Gronkowski missed his first game because of ankle and back injuries.WILD TIMESMitchell Trubisky’s accuracy came into question, but not his feet.His career-high 81 yards rushing included a spinning, cross-field 8-yard TD run in which he initially scrambled back to about the 30. But he had two interceptions, should have had at least two more and finished 26 for 50 for 333 yards with two touchdowns.The wildness was very apparent early against Patriot blitzes.“Early on, it wasn’t just Mitch,” Bears coach Matt Nagy said. “Trust me. There were a lot of people that were out of rhythm.”GOING DEEPThe Patriots had been lacking a bonafide deep threat in the passing game, but recently acquired Josh Gordon is starting to make an impact. He had a 55-yard reception to set up Brady’s 2-yard TD pass to James White to make it 38-24.He now has 13 catches for 224 yards in four games with New England since a trade from Cleveland last month.“We are just going to keep developing our confidence in one another Allen Robinson Jerseys Stitched , and he’s making great plays when I throw him the ball,” Brady said. “Just got to keep doing it.”LACK MACKStar pass rasher Khalil Mack was largely a nonfactor for the second straight game.The two-time All-Pro made little impact after injuring his right ankle early in last week’s overtime loss at Miami. And it wasn’t much different going against Brady and the Patriots.Mack had one tackle, and he failed to register a sack for the second week in a row. He spent most of the time on the right side of the line of scrimmage instead of the left, where he usually plays. And he often dropped back in coverage.Chicago’s lone sack was by Roquan Smith.“I don’t know if it affected him yet,” coach Matt Nagy said, referring to Mack’s ankle.“Obviously we didn’t feel it from our team as far as just getting the overall general pressure on (Brady).”CATCH AND RUNJames White continues to give New England solid contributions in the receiving and running games.He caught a team-high eight passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns. He also led New England with 40 yards rushing.“You never know how a team is going to decide how to match up against you,” White said. “No matter who is covering me, I just try to win my match whether it’s a corner, safety, linebacker, D-ends. Just get open, man to man or find the right spot in the end zone and catch the ball and protect it.”White leads New England for the year in receptions with 45 and has six TD catches. BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP)The Chicago Bears made sweeping changes to lift a struggling franchise, and general manager Ryan Pace can’t wait to see how it all comes together.The next big step is here.The Bears reported to camp Thursday looking for bigger things after a busy offseason.”I’d say it’s been aggressive Youth Taylor Gabriel Jerseys ,” Pace said. ”There’s been a lot of work that’s been done. It feels like it’s gone by fast because of that. But it’s very exciting and energizing. What’s neat about it is how quickly this continuity has come together.”There are a lot of new pieces with our support staff, with our coaches, with our players, and it’s really neat to see how fast that’s come together, even before we started training camp.”The team that takes the field Friday, when practices begin, will have a decidedly different look than the one that finished with five wins last season. There were big changes on the sideline, with the Bears hiring Nagy off Andy Reid’s staff in Kansas City to replace the fired John Fox.Besides bringing in an offensive-minded head coach, the Bears rebuilt a struggling receiving group to try to get the most out of prized quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. His development will obviously go a long way toward determining how soon Chicago ends a run of four straight last-place finishes in the NFC North and becomes a playoff contender. The Bears have made the postseason just one time since the 2006 team reached the Super Bowl.It doesn’t hurt that they’re starting camp at just about full strength, though they might be without one notable player – rookie linebacker Roquan Smith. The No. 8 overall draft pick did not report Thursday and remained unsigned.Pace seemed confident the impasse will end soon.”This happens,” he said. ”This isn’t necessarily abnormal around the league. It’s happening. It is sometimes part of the process. We’re very optimistic that he’ll be here very soon.”One positive for Chicago: Nagy was not expecting any players to start camp on the physically unable to perform list. He said receiver Allen Robinson and guard Kyle Long should be ”full speed ahead, good to go” after they were held back in offseason workouts because of injuries.”The reason we did that was so they’d be ready to go now,” Nagy said. ”Now it’s go time.”For them and the Bears. It’s time see how everything comes together.Fox’s 14-34 record over three seasons gave him the second-worst winning percentage in franchise history. And the Bears are counting on a first-time head coach to help turn them around.Nagy will be calling the plays, something he didn’t do until late last season. But he has earned high marks for his work with quarterbacks Taylor Gabriel Jerseys Stitched , particularly Alex Smith.”He brings a lot to the table,” Trubisky said. ”It’s a group effort, everyone’s bringing ideas together, but at the end of the day, it’s Coach Nagy’s offense and he’s just adding details, he’s a very detailed person. You can see his creativity every day, pretty much.”Trubisky envisions a more potent and creative offense. The training wheels are essentially off. It’s a big change from where he was a year ago, when the Bears penciled him into a backup role, only to thrust him into the starting spot after Mike Glennon struggled through the first four games.He also has some new playmaking targets, most notably Robinson. The Bears are banking on the talented receiver to regain the form that made him a Pro Bowl pick in 2015 and put aside the knee injury that sidelined him almost all of last season. Robinson tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Jacksonville’s third play of the season and had surgery the following week.”I feel great. It’s been a process that we’ve taken a little bit slower, but I think that was for the best,” Robinson said. ”It just was all about getting me ready for this time right here, so I feel great. I feel 100 percent and I’m ready to go.”—

    Comments Highlight Progress on LA StadiumCasey Hayward takes a VR tour of LA StadiumChargers.comIf you are reading this Antonio Gates Jerseys 2019 , then you are probably one of folks on this Earth that finds the LA Chargers a unique, albeit often confusing, tangle of decisions to observe from afar. While there has no doubt been a lot of debate (internally and externally) about the logic of some of their recent decisions, we know that the Chargers are trying to cement their place in the City of Angels.One of the more pressing needs is finding a permanent HQ.ESPN spoke with team owner Dean Spanos about the ongoing search for a permanent office.Spanos continued to say:Beyond wanting something as soon as possible, but ensuring there’s no rush, the Chargers are currently busy building a roster that looks to do more than just compete in 2019. There is every indication that this will be their last year at (formerly) StubHub White Kellen Winslow Jerseys , and they are already getting excited about their stadium-to-be at Hollywood Park.Members of the team and media have been donning VR headsets to explore the stadium, or at least what they expect it to look like in 2020.Before the Super Bowl, Casey Hayward took a tour of the stadium and came away impressed:However, this week has been an important milestone in the construction of the colossus that promises to be the Chargers’ eventual home. Youtuber John Kay gave us one of the best views yet of the construction, as the final roof trusses are being put into place: and this goes nicely with another insider view of the siding panels getting ready for placement:All-in-all, it looks like the construction has met or exceeded expectations in this last year after floundering in 2017. Excepting a major setback Kellen Winslow Jerseys 2019 , there is every reason to expect the stadium to be ready for Chargers fans in 2020.-Jason “That’s one very large, somewhat delayed erection”Michaels Oakland coach Jon Gruden said he should take the blame for Derek Carr's bewildering fourth-down throwaway that ended any slim chance of a Raiders comeback.Carr's decision to throw the ball at the feet of running back Jalen Richard when no one was open on a fourth-and-5 play in the fourth quarter of a 20-6 loss Sunday to the Los Angeles Chargers summed up Oakland's fifth straight loss.Carr rolled right on the play looking for Richard in the flat. But with Melvin Ingram chasing him, Carr just threw the ball away rather than give any of his receivers even a chance at making a play."It was a terrible call by me," Gruden said Monday. "It was a design for Jalen Richard against man-to-man coverage. There wasn't a lot (Carr) could have done. He could have been Fran Tarkenton and done a 360 and reversed the field a few times. There wasn't much there. You got to credit the play caller with that outcome."The Raiders (1-8) were probably hurt more by another fourth-down call on the opening drive. Gruden decided to go for it from the 1 and used a play other teams had success running on the Chargers in the past.Receiver Dwayne Harris came across the formation to take a shovel pass from Carr, but was unable to get to the edge because of missed blocking assignments. Harris was stopped for no gain and the Raiders didn't get into the end zone."Once again, it was not a very good play call because it didn't work White Junior Seau Jerseys ," Gruden said. "A lot of people are running that play, as you know, in the tight red zone for obvious reasons. My first time using it wasn't a great experience."Very little has been great for the Raiders this season as they are off to the third-worst start in franchise history, trailing only the 0-10 mark in Carr's rookie season of 2014 and an 0-13 mark in 1962 鈥?one year before Al Davis joined the franchise as coach and then owner.The stretch the Raiders are currently on is as bad as any they've had in 59 seasons as a professional team. They have lost five straight by at least 14 points for the first time ever and are one 14-point loss shy of tying the single-season record for the most by any team since the merger.Oakland has been outscored 75-9 in the past nine quarters and was held without a TD in consecutive games for the first time since 2012."I know it's dark right now," Gruden said. "It's tough. It's tough on our fans. I thank our fans for showing up and being with us. We're going to bring this thing back. I've been a part of it before and we've got some great people to build around. We've got some resources to keep building. I'll leave it at that."The Raiders will go ahead with some key injuries at receiver with Martavis Bryant out with an injured PCL in his knee. Jordy Nelson also hurt his knee and his status for this week remains unknown. Oakland already traded away No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper, leaving Brandon LaFell and Seth Roberts as the team's top two options.Those injuries could lead to an opportunity for rookie Marcell Ateman Junior Seau Jerseys 2019 , who was promoted from the practice squad last month but hasn't had a chance to play yet. Gruden also said he might bring in some receivers this week to try out.The Raiders won't be getting a boost from defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday when he was unable to come back from knee surgery. Vanderdoes tore his ACL in the final game of the 2017 season and began this year on the physically unable to perform list after a setback in training camp.He spent the past three weeks practicing but the team determined it was best to let him rest up for next year."We expected him to be ready in camp," Gruden said. "I think right now it's not 100 percent. He hadn't had enough padded practices and been in the trenches enough to activate him, perhaps reinjuring that. I think it's the wise thing to do. We will try to move forward without him and get him healthy for next year."
  3. Black Harold Carmichael Jerseys ,739 by the NFL for his unnecessary roughness penalty in the Bears' playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.Amos hit tight end Zach Ertz, who was deemed a defenseless receiver, in the third quarter of Philadelphia's 16-15 win last Sunday. It came on a third-down play that extended the drive that gave the Eagles a 10-6 lead on Dallas Goedert's 10-yard touchdown catch.Eagles defensive lineman Bennett was docked $10,026 on Saturday, also for unnecessary roughness, for an open-handed punch to the face of Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long's face in the second quarter. It was also a third-down play that extended a drive, and Chicago kicked a field goal a few plays later.

But what has been evident in his play over the last month is that the second-year cornerback is taking the leap many successful players make during their first full NFL offseason. “I feel like I know a lot more Harold Carmichael Jerseys 2019 ,” Maddox said Wednesday after a minicamp practice. “I’m still in here asking questions because I have to, but I got a better understanding of the defense, so I’m not just learning on the fly.”Eagles mini-camp observations: Avonte Maddox is good - PhillyVoiceThe defensive highlight of the day was an interception by Avonte Maddox, who was playing what looked like trail coverage on Marken Michel, who was running some sort of seam route. When the ball was released by Wentz, Maddox accelerated -- and then elevated -- for the ball, making an impressive leaping catch, before running the other way with it. Maddox has picked up right where he left off a season ago, and looks really good.Eagles Minicamp Practice Notes: Carson Wentz and DeSean Jackson team up for the highlight of the day - BGNCARSON WENTZ UPDATE: The highlight of Wednesday’s practice was when Wentz dialed up a 50-yard deep bomb to DeSean Jackson for a touchdown. The ball was right on the money; it hit Jackson — who burned Rasul Douglas — in stride. Wentz has been throwing to Jackson all spring long but that’s the first time the two really connected on a shot like that. Players got really excited. The play had me thinking: is Wentz the best quarterback that DeSean has ever played with?

The company line has been that Howard is more than competent in that area and that he’ll be able to help the passing game. I’m not buying it. Howard has averaged 12.1 receiving yards per game in his career. Can he catch some check-downs and screens on early downs? Sure. But that’s not why the Eagles traded for him. He’s on the roster to be a downhill runner. Miles Sanders has been sidelined in the spring with a hamstring injury, but the guess here is the coaches really want to see how the rookie looks as a receiver in training camp and the preseason. Plus, Doug Pederson has pointed to Boston Scott as a potential Darren Sproles replacement.Wednesday’s Practice Report: The Wentz-Jackson connection is sizzling - PE.comCornerback Avonte Maddox is no longer a rookie and he isn’t an unknown. He’s just a darn good football player who has, it appears, settled in on the island after splitting time at safety in his first Eagles season. Maddox has been around the football throughout the spring and had a big interception on Wednesday. The Eagles don’t have a depth chart, as we all know, so they’re just rifling through personnel combinations now, but it’s going to be tough to keep Maddox off the field.

  4. Seahawks quarterback Alex McGough to a reserve/future contract.Can confirm #Jaguars are signing QB Alex McGough to a future deal.— Harry..."The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Alex McGough to a reserve/future contract.First Ryquell Armstead Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , what is a reserve/future contract? Every team is allowed to bring 90 players to training camp. The types of contracts allow them to start signing players for camp once the regular season ends. In essence, it’s a contract that is binding but won’t count against their roster until the number of allowable spots on the roster increases.Our own Filip Prus has been asking for the Jaguars to do this all season, noting him as one of the players that Jacksonville should sign off an opposing team’s practice squad last month.It’s a good signing and shows the Jaguars will likely have a lot of turnover in the quarterbacks room between now and next preseason. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — It wasn’t too long ago that veteran receiver Donte Moncrief was buried on Jacksonville’s depth chart.Moncrief had fallen behind Marqise Lee, Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook and even rookie DJ Chark after missing a week of practice because of a sore knee.Now, four weeks later and following a devastating injury to Lee , Moncrief might be the team’s go-to guy heading into the season opener at the New York Giants.He certainly is the unwitting leader of that position group and will be counted on to fill a void created when Lee hurt his left knee in the preseason and was placed on injured reserve.“The young guys Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys 2019 , they look at me as an older guy,” Moncrief said. “I just told them, ‘Anybody can be great.’ It just takes the time and passion to go out there and want to be great. Go out there and make plays every day, not just in a game, also in practice, so you can build the trust when it comes down to game time.”The Jaguars trusted Moncrief enough to give him a one-year, $9.6 million contract in free agency. The deal was fully guaranteed, a move general manager Dave Caldwell felt he had to do with so much uncertainty at receiver.Jacksonville figured Allen Robinson was gone Youth Ryquell Armstead Jersey , was unsure Lee would re-sign, and planned to part with Allen Hurns. The team also had no idea it would get Chark in the second round of the draft.So the Jags targeted Moncrief, hoping his big-play ability would help spread out defenses designed to slow down Jacksonville’s run-first approach .The 6-foot-2 Moncrief caught 152 passes for 1,875 yards and 18 touchdowns in four years with Indianapolis. He missed 11 games the last two seasons because of shoulder and toe injuries. He also endured quarterback chaos, with Andrew Luck, Jacoby Brissett, Matt Hasselbeck, Scott Tolzien and Josh Freeman throwing him passes.“Just having a chip on my shoulder to go out and show what I actually can do and have a healthy year and come out here and compete and show the league what I’ve got Youth Telvin Smith Jerseys ,” Moncrief said. “I know what I’m capable of and I’m going to hold myself to it.”Jacksonville is counting on it now, especially without Lee.Still, the team believes Cole, Westbrook and Chark have star potential.Cole was an undrafted rookie from tiny Kentucky Wesleyan in 2017, a guy admittedly awe-struck by playing in packed NFL stadiums. He was barely noticeable on the field early, catching eight passes for 111 yards in the first seven games. He finished with 42 receptions for 748 yards and three touchdowns, plus a few huge plays in the postseason .Westbrook, a fourth-round draft pick from Oklahoma in 2017 Telvin Smith Jerseys Stitched , missed the first nine games of his rookie year because of a sports hernia, caught 27 passes for 339 yards and a TD in seven games.Cole and Westbrook were in the starting lineup late last season, and it wasn’t an ideal situation.“There were times last year where you kind of got that look in the huddle where it is like, ‘Hey, I have no idea what you were talking about,'” quarterback Blake Bortles said. “Looking at them this year, they are running out of the huddle before I can finish saying the play because they know what they have.”The Jags expected those guys to make strides in their second seasons, but they didn’t want to have to rely on it.Moncrief Ryquell Armstead Jersey Color Rush , meanwhile, welcomes the pressure of having to perform, especially on a one-year contract that essentially has him prepping for free agency again.“Everybody in that room can play,” Moncrief said. “It’s just about stepping up when you’re ready to go. … I just tell them you’ve been doing this since you were little. It’s just football. Make plays, catch the ball, go block, and let everything else fall in place.“We’ve got to be special in that room.”

His first topic? Quarterback pre-snap reads.CDTThe 2019 NFL football season is almost upon us, and while that brings with it the joy of watching intense gridiron action, it also brings with it one of the more challenging aspects of being a football fan: understanding football’s language.

Just after stepping off the bus, I looked up from ordering a car to my hotel and saw the back of a Polaris Slingshot zoom past me. I can’t recall if it was white or cream, and couldn’t really see the head of the driver, which I suspect places him around the 5’6” or lower range. If that wasn’t Tarik Cohen Kerrith Whyte Jersey 2019 , then I’ll go to my grave believing a lie. Because, obviously, that was Tarik Cohen welcoming me to my Bears Camp weekend of unadulterated ursine joy. But let’s get to today’s practice.It’s the first day training camp was open to the masses of us hungry fans. Lines wrapped around the parking lot as we waited desperately for a glimpse of actual football with wild hopes of seeing something that might actually change our outlook on the upcoming season or catch a fleeting moment of attention from a roster-bubbler in a Navy uniform. It did not disappoint.Who looked good?Aaron Lynch - Aaron Lynch was able to achieve the rare accomplishment of standing out in a group wearing a regimented uniform by perfecting the aggressively high-waisted pant look. Very tasteful and fashion forward. I am a little disappointed that in my best dressed Twitter poll, he is currently pulling last place behind a rando fan wearing a Mack jersey. Perhaps he wasn’t best dressed, but he unequivocally wore it best. Aaron Lynch rocking the high-waisted pant look. Photo by Patti CurlMike Furrey - The runaway leader in my best dressed poll is receivers coach Mike Furrey, who sported a grey Bears hoody sweater-vest. It was a bold choice for the mid-80s relentless sunlight but clearly the sacrifice in comfort was worth it. Mike Furrey has tickets to the gun show. Photo by Patti CurlBody by Sowell - From first impressions, backup offensive lineman turned Tight End has taken the transition seriously. He must be 70 pounds lighter and I need to get on his diet plan ASAP. For what it’s worth White Kerrith Whyte Jersey , he looked capable running basic routes and catching low-difficulty passes. Mister Biscuit - Let’s be clear, there was nothing about Trubisky’s physical appearance or fashion that impressed me: it was only his play on the field. He was decisive and accurate on the majority of his passes. He never botched his mechanics for a maddeningly inaccurate blunderball. He never got the chance to throw a jaw-dropping rainbow either, but I’ll take the consistency over flashes of greatness every time. Some people may gripe about some poorly placed balls. Those people clearly don’t understand he was obviously testing and challenging his receivers with that ball placement. Tricksy Bisky in true form. Fry guy? Elliot Chi? - If I’m reading the vibe from the crowd right, it’s time for Alligator Rob to go back to Florida because Chicago has a new hero of the moment. Kicker Elliott Frye.Some people have said that he missed his first kick and went 9 of 10. Those people seem credible, but it looked good from my angle and the crowd cheered. So I’m giving him 10 of 10. I will say his last “60 yard” field goal looked more like 59 to my eye. That’s more than enough for a guy whose mini camp reports were that he had accuracy and kicked the ball straight but didn’t have the distance of his top competitor, Eddy Piniero. Presumably that guy is still on the team. I’m not sure why because Chi is definitely ready to ride or die with Fry Guy.Tarik Cohen – Cohen is a superstar. He put about 30 seconds into milking the crowd at the beginning of camp and we couldn’t get enough of him all day. Neither could Trubisky. If Cohen wasn’t the top target, he was number two. The refs had a terrible time figuring out whether he was getting touched or cleanly dancing around a defender in team drills Dick Butkus Jerseys Stitched , and Cohen didn’t help the matter because he always ran an extra 30 yards down field after the whistle blew. That Bear has endless energy and it’s infectious.Khalil Mack – I didn’t expect to see much from Mack without pads on. I figured he’d only be on the field for a few plays and it wouldn’t be the right environment for him to shine. I was right on the first count. I was a fool on the second. The offense didn’t double team Mack and he darted around tackles so quickly and effortlessly that it almost stopped being fun to watch. Almost.It was a bit like a big kid showing off when someone’s trying to teach their little brother how to play. OK. We get it. You’re incredible. But people are trying to learn here. Hopefully, we’ll see some double teams tomorrow. Mixed reviews Mike Davis – Mike Davis literally got mixed reviews from me and the people I was sitting with (particularly WCG writers EJ Snyder and Robert Schmitz). It likely has something to do with which plays we paid attention too. I had the privilege of standing right in front of the running backs as they did their ladder drills. Mike Davis came right after Tarik Cohen and I was surprised at how well he kept up. Every team drill I saw him in, he caught the ball easily, including a lightly-covered wheel route with decent air yards. My colleagues thought his feet looked slower than the rest of the RBs and reported that his paws had some snatching issues. Let them drag Davis through the mud. I have a feeling he plays best when things get messy.Marvin Hall – I was actually expecting Marvin Hall to be a pleasant surprise coming into camp to. He certainly showed speed, but he was well below average when it came to adjusting to poorly (perhaps cleverly) placed passes. Aside from one wide open fly route which he pulled in effortlessly, he didn’t stand out in team drills or do anything to help carve space in the Bears garishly-deep receiver group.Cordarrelle Patterson – This really isn’t news about Patterson. We know he can run fast in one direction. Stopping and starting have never been his calling card. It was a little strike to see him lose his footing twice while making sharp cuts on routes in receiver drills. He was clearly putting in maximum effort presumably wanting to show the Bears what he can do. Unfortunately, he more showed what he can’t do. It’s okay Youth Bobby Massie Jerseys , though. We already knew that. Nagy will find the right way to make him shine. It won’t be running three-cut routes.Most impressive moment of the dayNo wait!Photo by Patti CurlI had to go to the restroom at the peak of camp. There were multiple locations of port-a-potties. The location closest to me had literally no line. I’ve never been to an event with thousands of people that was so well prepared in the bathroom department. Only note: “Honey Pot” brand port-a-potties would have been most appropriate for the occasion. It’s a minor gripe in what was otherwise a logistical masterpiece for the Bears’ organization.
  6. of a second-tier team in the NFL Darius Philon Jerseys Stitched , seeing as they’re the second-place team in the AFC West and the No. 2 team in Los Angeles.But the oddsmakers know just how good the Chargers are: The Chargers are 14-point favorites on Sunday against the Bengals, in a game that will be played just two weeks after they were also 14-point favorites against the Cardinals.It might be tempting to say those point spreads are more about the Cardinals and the Bengals, but the reality is, a team being favored by 14 points in the NFL just isn’t very common, even against the worst teams. There have only been five spreads all season of 14 points or more: These two recent Chargers games Cortez Broughton Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys , two games in which the Chiefs were heavy favorites (over the Cardinals and Raiders), and the biggest upset of this NFL season, when the Vikings were 16.5-point favorites over the Bills but lost 27-6.The Chargers easily covered the 14-point spread when they beat the Cardinals 45-10. The way the Chargers are playing, they are a dangerous team to bet against. The Chargers moved from San Diego to Los Angeles last year, but Philip Rivers did not.Rivers didn’t want to uproot his wife and eight children Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys 2019 , so last year he hired a driver and purchased a vehicle with reclining chairs and all the video equipment he needed to study film while he was being driven to and from practice. A year later, that’s still what he’s doing.鈥淲orked great last year,” Rivers told Peter King for Football Morning in America. 鈥淚t averaged about an hour and six minutes in the morning. Maybe 90 minutes at night, you know, when there was more traffic. But that鈥檚 okay. Just popped in third-down or red-zone [tape to analyze] Youth Cortez Broughton Jersey , and I鈥檓 good to go.鈥滾ast year Rivers was also giving his backup quarterback Kellen Clemens a ride, and the two of them studied together. This year Clemens is currently out of the NFL, and current Chargers backups Geno Smith and Cardale Jones presumably live closer to the facility. But Rivers will keep studying film alone, in the custom-made backseat of a luxury SUV.

In corresponding roster news, the team officially confirmed the previously reported Stefen Wisniewski and Cody Kessler signings.The Eagles originally signed Perez in early April after the AAF folded. There were reports out of rookie minicamp that he really struggled, which isn’t shocking considering his lack of experience. The Eagles clearly felt Kessler was a better option than Perez.Perez’s departure means Philadelphia is only rostering four quarterbacks now: Carson Wentz, Nate Sudfeld, Clayton Thorson, and Kessler. Evans was one of the 11 undrafted rookie free agent signings the Eagles announced last week. Philadelphia still has seven running backs on the roster after waiving Evans: Jordan Howard, Miles Sanders Youth DeAndre Carter Jerseys , Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Boston Scott, and Donnel Pumphrey.The Eagles’ roster is currently full at the 90-man offseason limit. More cuts could be coming if they plan on signing any of their rookie minicamp tryout players. If not, the current roster is likely the one that’ll be on the field for the start of OTA practices next Tuesday, May 21.

And now Holton is gone, too?! Unacceptable. (Worst of all, I keep making these dumb jokes.)Seriously, though, it’s a tough break for these waived players as the Eagles clear out roster space to make undrafted free agent signings. Philadelphia’s roster currently stands at 79 players, which is 11 shy of the 90-man offseason limit.Holton originally signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles back in mid-January.

EDTShareTweetShareShareNoteworthy nuggets from Eagles assistant coaches on DeSean Jackson, Miles Sanders, Jason Peters, and many othersBill Streicher-USA TODAY SportsThe Philadelphia Eagles occasionally make their assistant coaches available to the media and Monday morning marked one of those times. Here are some noteworthy nuggets from today’s session.DESEAN JACKSON’S IMPACTThe Eagles really talked up Jackson’s maturity upon bringing him back to Philly. The veteran wide receiver has delivered on that billing. Jackson, who hasn’t always made a habit of attending voluntary workouts, only missed one OTA practice this spring (the final one). He looked great on the practice field. Setting a good example for the young players. WHO’S THE PUNT RETURNER?Don’t ask Duce Staley.Let’s try Dave Fipp instead.Of the guys Fipp mentioned, Jackson is really the only 100% lock to make the team. It’s hard to envision the 32-year-old returning a majority of the punts in addition to having a big role on offense. Jackson’s only returned eight punts since the start of the 2014 season. The feeling here is that the Eagles will pick their spots with Jackson as the punt returner. So, whenever they feel they could use a spark on special teams. The Eagles could then have another punt returner who handles less pressing situations. It remains to be seen who that guy will be, though. MILES SANDERS’ OUTLOOKDuring the latest Birds With Friends episode http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-haloti-ngata-jersey , The Athletic’s Sheil Kapadia relayed that Staley said ‘Miles Sanders is going to be special.’ The Eagles are high on their rookie running back despite the fact he’s missed the entirety of OTAs with a hamstring injury.Even with Sanders in the fold, though, the Eagles aren’t about to suddenly abandon their running back rotation. Sanders and Jordan Howard figure to split a bulk of the carries.Speaking of Howard, there’s been some talk about his ability as a pass catcher. I think that’s being a little overblown. I hardly think Howard is incapable of catching the ball; I’ve seen him do that well enough in practice. But it’s not like he’s lining up out wide and making plays down the field like an Alvin Kamara. Howard’s a guy who’s averaged 1.5 receptions per game over his career. I’d be surprised if that’s drastically different in Philly. JASON PETERS BOUNCE BACK?There’s rightfully a lot of focus on 2019 being Carson Wentz’s second year removed from ACL/LCL surgery. But let’s not forget about the team’s starting left tackle, who originally injured his ACL in October 2017. Here’s what offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland had to say in this regard:A healthier Peters bodes well for the Eagles’ offensive line — and thus the offense as a whole. Then again, Peters also turned 37 earlier this year so we’ll see how age factors in.Personally, I’m not one to bet against JP. The guy is a freak. I think he has some quality football left in him before ceding the left tackle spot to Andre Dillard in 2020 and beyond. DALLAS GOEDERT HYPENo surprise here but the Eagles are bullish on their second-year tight end. Goedert’s looked great in spring practices. Philadelphia’s coaching staff MUST get him more involved in the offense this year. It would be malpractice to not get Goederet more looks. WILL DARREN SPROLES RETURN?Speaking recently on the Pro Football Doc Podcast, Sproles said: “If the right team calls, then I go back.” As I’ve said before, I believe the coaching staff when they say they’d love to have Sproles on the team. I’m just not so sure the front office thinks it’s a great idea. I think the Eagles should try to measure the progress of the guys fighting for the fourth running back spot (Wendell Smallwood Womens Nate Gerry Jersey , Boston Scott, Josh Adams, Donnel Pumphrey) before determining whether re-signing Sproles is needed. BRANDON BROOKS IS AWESOMEJust wanted to share this. Nice to see Brooks is handling a tough situation well. ANDREW SENDEJO COMP PICK WATCHKapadia noted that Eagles defensive backs coach Cory Undlin said of Sendejo: ‘loves ball, our kinda guy.’ The veteran safety HAS been taking first team reps in spring practices with both Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod missing time.Sendejo appears to be the favorite for the third safety job — Corey Graham’s old role. But keeping Sendejo on the 53-man roster past Week 10 this year means the Eagles will lose the 2020 fourth-round compensatory pick they’re currently set to receive for losing Jordan Hicks. Is Sendejo really so good that he’s worth losing that pick? That’s the decision the Eagles will have to make at some point.NATHAN GERRY KNOWS MORE THAN HIS COACHGerry has been taking first team linebacker reps alongside Kamu Grugier-Hill. Of course, Nigel Bradham has been missing practice while he recovers from a thumb injury. Zach Brown also missed some practices, although Gerry was still running with the starters when Brown returned. The Athletic’s Bo Wulf noted that Eagles linebacker coach Ken Flajole was really talking up Gerry. Flajole even said something along the lines of: ‘It feels like [Gerry] knows more than I do.” Maybe it means nothing but I don’t think I’d count on Gerry getting cut this summer.ALEX SINGLETON ... WHO?Here’s a deep cut for you. Earlier this offseason, the Eagles signed former CFL tackling machine Alex Singleton to a futures contract. I haven’t noticed him a ton (good or bad) in OTAs but apparently this isn’t his time to thrive.Kapadia noted that Fipp also mentioned Singleton — unprompted. Could be a good sign for the CFL long shot. Maybe he sticks on the practice squad.

The rule that treats fumbles through the end zone far more harshly than those that go out of bounds on the field of play has been used more times this year than any other this century and has coaches using the latest example as another teaching tool.

So this week was my first week at left guard.“It’s all football [regardless of position]. It’s all zone blocking, outside zone, pass protection, that’s all it is.”Gray, their seventh-round pick from Maryland, started 25 games the last three seasons Devin Bush Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , all at left tackle. But the Steelers are set with starters, largely into the future.With Matt Feiler stepping into the starting lineup at right tackle for Marcus Gilbert last year, and the Steelers extending center Maurkice Pouncey and right guard Ramon Foster, they have starting jobs accounted for the apparent future. Which means picks like 2018 third-rounder Chukwuma Okorafor and Gray and others have to cross-train.

Is it Ben or Bradshaw that statistically reigns supreme? Where is Cam Heyward on the all-time sacks list? Will “the Boz” rebound and regain his number one spot in all-time accuracy? After two seasons, how quickly is T.J. rising up? Those questions won't be answered until January Devin Bush Jersey Womens , but in our annual series, Steeling History, BTSC highlights the players that could move up the all-time charts and what they need to do so.Ben Roethlisberger Photo by Matthew Stockman/Getty ImagesBen is, far and away, the greatest statistical quarterback in the history of Pittsburgh football. There will always be a debate on whether Roethlisberger or Terry Bradshaw is the greatest Steelers' slinger of all-time. No. 7 owns pretty much every Steelers' quarterbacking record, but what he lacks is the greatest record of them all -- the four Super Bowl titles owned by the incomparable and aforementioned Bradshaw.Here's where Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger ranks first in Steelers QB passing lore:Most Passing Yards (Career): 56,194Most Passing Yards (Single Season): 5,129 (2018)Most Passing Yards (Single Game): 522Most 300 Yard Passing Games (Career): 60Most 300 Yard Passing Games (Single Season): 9Most Completions (Career): 4,616Most Completions (Single Season): 452 (2018)Most Completions (Single Game): 41 (11/25/18)Most Consecutive Completions: 15 (tied with Bubby Brister)Highest Competion Percentage (Career): 64.4%Highest Competion Percentage (Single Game): 88.0% (11/8/18)Highest Competion Percentage (Single Season): 68.0% (2015)Most Touchdown Passes (Career): 363Most Touchdown Passes (Single Season): 34 (2018)Most Touchdown Passes (Single Game): 6 (twice)Highest Passer Rating (Career): 94.2Highest Passer Rating (Single Season): 104.1 (2007)Most 4th Quarter Comebacks (Career): 31Most Game Winning Drives (Career): 43Wins (Career): 144One of the few records that Ben doesn't have is a positive one. Big Ben (172) is second all-time in interceptions thrown to Terry Bradshaw (210).Roethlisberger is getting ready to start his 16th season and he's set to surpass Mike Webster atop that legendary mountain. But he trails the iron man Webster in games played. Ben’s 216 games played, is good enough for third on the franchise list. The two up top are Hines Ward (217) and Webster (220). So the record could be seized Week 5.Once again Cheap Devin Bush Jersey , the landmark that Steelers fans care about most for Ben Roethlisberger to achieve is Super Bowl victories. The hope is that Ben ends the 2019 campaign only one ring shy of tying the record of four.James ConnerPhoto by Mark Brown/Getty ImagesGoing into his third season and second as a starter, Conner ranks 26th with 12 rushing scores. Were he to duplicate his 12 from last season, No. 30 would jet up to a tie with Willie Parker for 10th place. Conner’s 1,117 yards has him ranked 33rd. Matching his 973 yards from last year would jump him up to 19th place. JC would need 1,141 to get past Terry Bradshaw and into 17th.JuJu Smith-Schuster Photo by Roy K. Miller/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesAfter only two seasons as a pro, JJSS is already 22nd in team career receptions with 169. Matching last year’s total of 111 would bump JuJu up to 280 and tenth on the list. No. 19 has 2,343 career receiving yards, good for 23rd. his tie for 23rd with current teammates Stephon Tuitt and Bud Dupree to a tie for 14th with Brett Keisel and James Farrior. 12.5 from any of the three would be good for a tie at 11th with Clark Haggans.Mike TomlinPhoto by Mark Alberti/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesThe Steeler coach is going into his13th season coaching the Steelers. Mike has a record of 125-66-1 with a .654 winning percentage. Coach T has the highest winning percentage in team history over Bill Cowher (.623) and Chuck Noll (.566). However, Tomlin is still 25 wins from passing Cowher for second at 149. Noll leads at 193 wins. Tomlin is the only of the three never to finish a season with a losing record.

Some reports have indicated Williams does not want to return to the team at all, but head coach Jay Gruden said on Wednesday that his expectation is that Williams will be back.“We know how we feel about Trent; how important he is to this team. We expect him here shortly,” Gruden said, via ESPN.com. “Right now, there are some things he has to work out individually, personally, with his agent . . . whatever that may be. Love Trent, love what he’s done for this franchise and this team.”Williams is signed through the 2020 season and there have also been rumblings that he’d like to address his deal in addition to the other concerns with the team.

  13. OAKLAND Martavis Bryant Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Derek Carr had appeared to pass Philip Riversin the pecking order of AFC West quarterbacks two years ago. He put together a season worthy of MVP consideration while Rivers led the NFL in interceptions on the way to a last-place finish.Carr looked like one of the NFL's up-and-coming stars, while Rivers seemed to be on the downside of a career that started in 2004.The script has flipped heading into Sunday's meeting between Rivers' Los Angeles Chargers (6-2) and Carr's Oakland Raiders (1-7). Rivers is playing as well as he has at any point in his 15-year career, while Carr is struggling to find his way in coach Jon Gruden's offense. "Obviously quarterbacks get way too much credit and way too much blame already, but I think we don't give enough credit to guys who have played that long," Carr said. "I'll say it this way, the hardest part mentally going through a season is the days leading up to the game. Sunday is fun, man. You cut it loose and you give it everything you have. Having to recover, ice tub, wake up early to get treatment, the lift, to lift heavy when everything hurts, that's when those guys don't get enough credit."Here I am at five years, I'm fine. I'm good. I'll keep doing this and I'm good. But, those guys that are in their 15th, 20th season, we don't give them enough credit to mentally be that strong. It's awesome."Rivers has career highs in yards per attempt (9.1) and passer rating (116.5), and is on pace for a career-high 38 touchdown passes while leading the Chargers to five straight wins.The Chargers have strengthened their offensive line, have a potent running threat in Melvin Gordon, have plenty of outside targets with Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and Mike Williams Derrick Johnson Jersey , and a strong defense.That has all taken pressure off Rivers to carry too much of the load."These last almost 20 games or so, we've had good balance," Rivers said. "Leaning on one another offensively and defensively taking care of the ball — all of those things are important. So we've done a nice job of it so far."Here are some other things to watch:GORDON'S RUNMelvin Gordon has rushed for 407 yards and scored five touchdowns in his last four games. He also has three 100-yard games in three of his past four, the first time that has happened in his career. The only game when Gordon did not go over the century mark was Week 5 against the Raiders; he had just 58 yards on 19 carries. The Raiders are last in the league in rushing defense, but Gordon knows he has a tough test ahead."They played me pretty tough last time we went up against them. It is never easy since they are a rival. As a group the offensive line is hitting on all cylinders. We hope to keep getting stronger."PRESSURE POINTThe Raiders have struggled to generate any sort of pass pressure all season after trading away Khalil Mack. Oakland ranks last in the NFL with seven sacks and last with 35 QB pressures, according to SportRadar, 28 fewer pressures than the next-lowest team. Fixing that will only get harder after the team released top pass rusher Bruce Irvin last week. That puts more pressure on a trio of rookies — P.J. Hall, Arden Key and Maurice Hurst — that has three sacks this season."We put a lot on their plate and that's because they're the future of this team," teammate Frostee Rucker said. "They have to come along and play."KINGS OF PICKSThe Chargers have seven interceptions during their five-game winning streak and have 189 yards in returns, which leads the league. Second-year cornerback Desmond King has three of the interceptions and returned one 42 yards for a touchdown last week at Seattle to put the Chargers up by two scores.MISSING WIDEOUTSOakland has struggled to get any production from wideouts in recent weeks. Since the start of Week 5, Oakland ranks last in the NFL with 37 catches and 428 yards receiving from wide receivers. Amari Cooper had one catch for 10 yards in two games in that span before being traded to Dallas. Seth Roberts leads Oakland's pass catchers with 12 receptions over those four games, while Martavis Bryant has the most yards with 138.NEW KICKER (AGAIN)The Chargers have become the Bermuda Triangle for placekickers. Michael Badgley is the team's sixth since the start of last season and moved into the role fulltime this week after Caleb Sturgis was released on Monday. Badgley made all three of his field goals and seven extra points in the two games he kicked when Sturgis had a quadriceps injury. When the Raiders signed Trent Brown to a four-year, $66 million deal, he was coming off a year as the starting left tackle for the Patriots.Brown is not going to be at the same spot on Oakland’s offensive line. The team has opted to keep 2018 first-round pick Kolton Miller at left tackle while Brown moves to the right side.It’s the position he played for the 49ers during his first three years in the league and Brown said on Tuesday that it has been a smooth transition back to the spot.“It’s natural,” Brown said, via the . “Pretty much just stepping right back into what I was doing. [Moving to the left side] was more of a transition than it is coming back to the right. Definitely had to get my reps in and get my work in and it took some time, but I got comfortable over there and I think I can play either side comfortably now.”Given Brown’s familiarity with playing on the right side, the biggest question mark at tackle for the Raiders will likely be whether or not Miller makes the improvements needed after a shaky rookie season.

GIF Horse - Dwayne Haskins, franchise quarterback?Could Haskins be the heir to Elway? Aaron Doster-USA TODAY SportsThe very first word that comes to mind with Dwayne Haskins is “distributor.” Some quarterbacks are dangerous with the ball in their hands (hello Kyler Murray), but that’s not the Buckeyes’ game. He’s a point man that puts his playmakers in situations to succeed. Sort of like another Urban QB. It may have been the system he played in, but I couldn’t shake the Alex Smith vibes. Haskins is nowhere near the runner Smith was coming out in 2005, but both are at their best when they’re simply making the right reads. Both also depend heavily on their surrounding talent.In the last few weeks there’s been persistent rumors that some teams prefer Drew Lock to Haskins and that the latter could experience a slide on Draft Day. It comes down to fit, but when you consider the concerns about both, it makes a lot of sense. Many teams see Lock and think he’s just some good coaching away from correcting all that ails him, while Haskins is harder to project. The big questions you hear about Dwayne Haskins are his upside, vertical passing, and ability to handle pressure. One full season as a starter means there’s limited tape to definitively answer them, but all three are worth investigating further.Pressure makes diamonds, or it crushes rocks.Haskins can destroy pressure with strikes, or fold completely. The best way to defeat any quarterback is to get in his face. There’s a reason why edge rushers make more on average than any position besides quarterback. With that said, Haskins’ worst moments come out when he isn’t comfortable in the pocket. While his pre-snap reads and short passing game are huge strengths, he can be slow to read down from a deep throw and become erratic on targets 2+, especially when he’s under duress. Haskins misses wide open outlet receivers and eats dirt. To be fair, Haskins is a really young quarterback, and he shows moments on tape where he’s good at finding his outlets. But it won’t be as easy in the NFL, and he can’t just rely on things like Mesh to bail him out. He’ll need to get better at finding his backs and hot reads in the face of pressure since he won’t be able to run himself to safety. Anyone can read the stats, but how good is his arm? One of the first things Haskins’ defenders will throw out there is that he threw for a Big Ten record 50 touchdowns last year. It’s true, and he also completed 70 percent of his passes for 4,831 yards on his way to doing so. He torched Michigan’s second-ranked defense for 396 yards and six touchdowns, and no interceptions.Much like Urban’s best Florida teams, OSU’s scheme wrecks teams with speed all over the field. As a bad Michigan fan, I can tell you I watched “the Game” as it played out last year. One thing that became painfully apparent was how big a staple crossing routes like Mesh were to the OSU offense. It shouldn’t have caught anyone by surprise as the concepts show up throughout the 2018 tape. The same play design as the video above was used against Maryland earlier in the season. This isn’t a knock on Haskins, as he made the plays given to him, but the crossers in Mesh are one of the easier completions a QB can make. Combined with the fact that Ohio State had more talent across its offense than every single opposing D on its schedule, and Haskins’ raw production starts to come under a bit more scrutiny.Oh look, another crosser. Deep accuracy is the biggest concern that emerges from under the microscope. Haskins doesn’t have the same raw arm strength Lock or Murray does. It’s fine as they’re probably two of the three biggest arms in this class, and Haskins does a solid job of getting the ball out with zip when he has the time to set up his throw. But his bombs have a bad tendency to float or quack if he doesn’t have the time to set up, and his deep accuracy comes and goes. Haskins has an NFL arm, but it isn’t a Howitzer. Haskins didn’t throw it deep downfield that often last year though. He’ll never have the pure cannon guys like Lock posses, but with work on his mechanics there’s reason to believe he could improve here. “Safe,” but what about the P-word?One of the things that’s routinely been thrown around about Haskins this draft season is that the OSU quarterback has a high floor. The narrative goes that he isn’t going to be a complete bust and represents a safe choice at the quarterback selection. One of the reasons this has become accepted as fact is that Haskins’ tape displays many of the things you need to pray that young quarterbacks figure out over the course of their rookie contracts. The Buckeye is already adept at making the correct decisions pre-snap and makes multiple reads to find the open receiver. He needs to get better at it, but he’s miles ahead of most young quarterbacks.Take Justin Herbert, for instance. He’s still a work in progress at reading through progressions. It’s one of the harder things to anticipate with modern quarterbacks as they make the jump to the NFL because in college they’ll routinely lock onto one target and scramble if it isn’t there.Haskins doesn’t do that Phillip Lindsay Jersey , in part, because he knows his own limitations as a runner. He can still improve in this area, especially his vertical progressions where he sometimes stalls out. He also goes through periods where he forgets his outlet receivers exist, but there are enough signs to believe it will be a strength of his game as he develops.At the same time, this strength makes it a bit harder to forecast Haskins’ upside. With someone like Drew Lock, it’s easy to imagine what he can do with his current tools if he gets better at tying his legs, eyes and arm together. With Murray, it’s tantalizing to believe what he can do once he masters the “boring” aspects of quarterback play. But what can the 21-year old Haskins become?I’ve heard Haskins compared to Carson Palmer, Drew Bledsoe, Jacoby Brissett, Jameis Winston, Byron Leftwich, David Garrard, Alex Smith, Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota so far this spring. There’s still so much we don’t know about Haskins. He’s hard to truly pin down because OSU put him in position to light it up but also hid him with its scheme and supporting cast. Jake Fromm is another player I have similar questions for, but because he’ll play three years before going pro, there will be ample opportunity to analyze how he grows, as well as how he reacts to changes in the talent around him.There’s no such chance with Haskins, and combined with his questionable fit in the Rich Scangarello offense, it leaves me very hesitant to draft him 10th overall. Of course everyone wants to know how Drew Lock and Brett Rypien will do, but I’m more intrigued by a few lesser-hyped rookies." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteMile High Reporta Denver Broncos communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsBroncosOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos 2019 Draft ClassBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Filed under:Denver Broncos NewsDenver Broncos 2019 DraftBest Broncos’ rookies to watch as minicamp opens Friday New,31commentsOf course everyone wants to know how Drew Lock and Brett Rypien will do, but I’m more intrigued by a few lesser-hyped rookies. Best Broncos’ rookies to watch as minicamp opens Friday Photo by Matthew Holst/Getty ImagesGood morning, Broncos Country!Rookie Minicamp starts tomorrow for the Broncos, and after another solid draft by John Elway, hopes are high that this new crew setting foot in Dove Valley this weekend will be another stellar class with a lot of immediate impact.So who will be the most intriguing players to watch?Although tight end Noah Fant will have a lot of eyes on him as the first-round pick and Dalton Risner will be popular because of his larger-than-life personality, probably the most-analyzed player - for better or worse - will be quarterback Drew Lock. And to a lesser extent but still probably more than should be will be Lock’s apparent competition for backup, Brett Rypien.Obviously not a lot happens during the minicamp to give us a ton of information for predicting how these players will do once the real football starts, but it’s always interesting to watch the process from beginning to end.But there will be a few lesser-hyped rookies in particular I’ll be most interested in paying attention to this offseason, beginning this weekend:Dre’mont Jones, DTOhio State knows defensive linemen, and although Dre’Mont Jones was not talked about much since his teammate Nick Bosa (second overall pick) grabbed most of the headlines, Jones was a force to be reckoned with.In 2018, Jones recorded 8.5 sacks, 40 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, two passes batted down, one forced fumble and a 28-yard pick-six.But while so many Broncos fans were still analyzing John Elway’s move up to get Missouri quarterback Drew Lock at No. 42 in the second round (Broncos’ third pick overall), they didn’t realize Elway was already onto his next pick - Dre’Mont Jones.Gene Ross, blogger for Land-Grant Holy Land, notes that Jones is “not your typical interior defensive lineman” used primarily to stuff the run and eat up blocks. Instead Emmanuel Sanders Jersey , the athletic Jones is often used to rush the passer.“He is far more athletic and plays a style much more fitting of an edge rusher,” Ross wrote. “Jones has very strong and quick hands, allowing him to toss aside offensive linemen to create havoc in the backfield. Of all draft eligible Big Ten interior defensive lineman, Dre’Mont Jones was the best pass rusher.”I look forward to seeing this.Alijah Holder, CBIf you’re saying, “who?” that’s because Alijah Holder was an undrafted free agent out of Stanford who will join a long list of players in the secondary trying to crack the roster.If you’re saying, “why him?” then pay attention to The Draft Network’s scouting report for the 6-foot-1, 190-pound corner: “Strong press coverage corner who looks to win within the first five yards. Generally plays with sound footwork through the kick-slide and to the hip turn, rarely lunging or over-extending in his punch. Strike is well located and does well to jar receiver into sideline; does well to maintain leverage when squeezing vertical stems into the boundary.”He was also given the biggest signing bonus of all the Broncos’ UDFAs at $18,000 (though quarterback Brett Rypien ended up with more in total) plus another $12,000 in guarantees, so Elway and the coaches definitely see something in him.Ahmad Gooden, EDGEAnother UDFA, Ahmad Gooden intrigues me because you can never have enough edge rushers, right?But also because he comes from Samford University - a tiny Southern Baptist-affiliated school of 5,000 that is not known for its football program. I know. I lived in its neighborhood for a time and had friends at that school. PeeWee football teams in Texas probably have more scouts paying attention to them than the Bulldogs.While Gooden clearly didn’t go up against the toughest competition by playing at Samford, the fact that the Broncos thought enough of him to bring him along speaks volumes, in my opinion, so I’m excited to see how he transitions to not just playing in the NFL, but playing with and against much higher level players.Noah Fant, TEFinally, a guy to watch on offense!!The first-round pick is always highly scrutinized, but I am genuinely excited to see if all the hype over Noah Fant is for real and if the former Hawkeye makes the impact we hope he does/need him to.Plus, I’m tired of every other team having a seemingly unstoppable tight end while the Broncos can barely keep one healthy through an entire game.It will also be fun to watch how Rich Scangarello uses Fant, given the talk that the tight end would easily be a good third wide receiver in the slot.Horse TracksBroncos safety Justin Simmons is happy with makeup of secondaryBroncos safety Justin Simmons paid some attention to last weekend’s NFL draft and was struck by one development as it pertained to his position group.Broncos announce changes to scouting departmentThe Broncos have announced several changes to their scouting staff.'A great responsibility': Vic Fangio reflects on his own high school coaching career, shares advice to Colorado HS coaches“If you’re one of those coaches or part of a coaching staff that does a great job, my hat’s off to you,” Fangio said. “Because I know the work that goes along with it and the lack of compensation that goes along with it.

    For the kid who grew up a Browns fan

    Cameron Sutton Jersey , he and his family have finally come to the dark side."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Latest NewsSteelers Film Room2018 NFL Draft AnalysisLatest NewsLatest News2019 NFL Draft AnalysisJustin Layne ditches his Cleveland Browns socks for some Pittsburgh Steelers swagNew,49commentsFor the kid who grew up a Browns fan, he and his family have finally come to the dark side.EDTShareTweetShareShareJustin Layne ditches his Cleveland Browns socks for some Pittsburgh Steelers swagMark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsFace it, no matter what you may think, every football player has a favorite team growing up. Very few players who reach the NFL level look back and say, “I didn’t really have a favorite team growing up.” No, instead they talk about how growing up in Texas they loved the Cowboys, or how in the Bay area they loved the 49ers.I could go on, but you get the picture.For Pittsburgh Steelers 3rd round pick Justin Layne, he grew up in Cleveland rooting for the Browns. His family were, and I use past tense intentionally, huge Browns fans until the Steelers called his name with their third round selection.In fact, Layne was wearing some Cleveland Browns socks on his feet before the phone rang with a 412 area code. He quickly ditched the orange and brown to don the black-and-gold.In his conference call with the Pittsburgh media JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey , he was asked what his father thought of all this, considering his fandom prior to the NFL Draft. “My dad threw away all his Browns stuff. He already has all of his Steelers stuff on him right now. We are ready, we are switching it up.”Putting family fandom aside, Layne is excited to be a part of the Steelers, a move he felt coming throughout the pre-draft process.“Yeah, I did. I felt that from the beginning.” He told the media. “I talked to the coaching staff, Coach Tomlin a lot at the Combine. Even at my pre-draft visits, I kind of had a feeling and knew they were going to get me.”When asked why he had that feeling, his response was simple. “I don’t know. It was just a feeling I had. It was in my dream and just what I felt. I felt like I was going to go against our rivals and they are the rivals to the Browns.”Playing at Michigan State, the Trojans and Wolverines of Michigan don’t mix. And the Michigan State team doesn’t think too fondly of Mr. Devin Bush. If you recall, it was Bush who stomped, kicked and tried to destroy the Michigan State emblem at midfield before the Michigan/Michigan State game this year. Does Layne hold any animosity over the incident with his now teammate?“I trained with him at EXOS and that’s my guy. I can’t wait to compete with him and win some games with him. That’s what happens when you compete and have a dominate competitor. I can’t wait to compete with him, that’s my boy. I have all respect for him.”I think it is safe to say the Steelers fan base is excited to see if these two defenders can improve their unit in 2019 T. J. Watt Jersey , and help them not just get back to the playoffs, but back to the Super Bowl. The Steelers were back on the gridiron for another training camp practice, and we’ve got the recap for you!" Latest NewsSteelers 2019 Training Camp Recap: Steelers get one last physical practice in before FridayNew,2commentsThe Steelers were back on the gridiron for another training camp practice, and we’ve got the recap for you!EDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:Steelers 2019 Training Camp Recap: Steelers get one last physical practice in before FridayTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailPhoto by Mark Alberti/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesThe Pittsburgh Steelers have had over a week of training camp practices under their belt now, and while there are times it is still considered “football in shorts”, the team has had plenty of news coming from these workouts. Tuesday’s practice marked the last time the Steelers likely don pads at practice before they play host to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Heinz Field this Friday night. Wednesday the team will practice, likely in shells, and then Thursday will be their walk-through before the game Friday night.In other words, Tuesday’s practice was the last bit of hitting the Steelers will get in before they finally get to hit someone not wearing a black-and-gold uniform.With that said, there was plenty of news coming from training camp, so let’s take a look at what went down.Highlights of 11-on-11 playThe Steelers had plenty of 11-on-11 play during practice, and here were some highlights Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey , for players like Benny Snell Jr., and lowlights, for players like Jerald Hawkins. Thanks to Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports for keeping fans informed as practice went on.Two-Minute DrillThe Steelers didn’t just go 11-on-11, but finished practice with the ever famous 2-minute drill. Take a look at how quarterbacks Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges fared in this last minute situation.Walking wounded updateThe injuries continue to mount, but as stated the other day, there is no cause for concern...yet.Seven ShotsFor those scoring at home, this means the Steelers’ defense has won just one of these drills since the start of training camp. I’m not sure if this is more of a ringing endorsement for the offense, or poor performances by the defense. You be the judge...Feiler gets a nice little pay dayA little known fact occurred for right tackle Matt Feiler. Due to him starting 10 games in 2018, he earned an extra $285,600 on his base salary. A nice little bump in pay for the man most are expecting to anchor the right side of the line in 2019.This per Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:JuJu and SantonioThroughout training camp the Pittsburgh Steelers organization has had some of their alumni come back every day to meet and greet with fans, and to sign autographs. Most former players mingle with the team before and after practice, and on Tuesday it was Santonio Holmes sharing some pointers with JuJu Smith-Schuster after practice.This per Mark Kaboly of The Athletic:VIDEOSPHOTOS
