This is my favorite pick of the 2019 NFL Draft for the Ravens. He’s 340-pounds and has a 27-inch vertical. The Ravens now have over 1,000-pounds cumulatively between Brandon Williams, Daylon Mack, and Michael Pierce. Mack figures to be an immediate contributor in goal line packages, and will help keep Pierce and Williams fresh. According to Pro Football Focus Mack was the SEC’s 10th most efficient interior pass rusher. Interior pressure is king in the NFL and the best way to blow up an opposing offense (i.e. the Chargers in the Wild-Card game).Daylon was a standout as a freshman at Texas A&M, then a coaching change and scheme change caused a disappointing sophomore campaign, before he emerged as a valued starter his junior year. Mack plays with outstanding leverage and pad level, using his massive frame to simply devour blockers. The former Aggie explodes through gaps because he stays low. He’s extremely similar to Michael Pierce, staying extremely low coming out of his stance to allow cat like quickness. He needs to improve his endurance, but the Ravens have never had a problem conditioning young players. The 52-game starter has a signature move. He employs a club-swim combo where he batters blockers with his outside arm then shrinks himself to shoot the gap with a swim move. He lacks range with stout arms and suboptimal length, maybe his only missing trait. Lets see what Mack’s film tells us:Daylon reminds me of the Vikings Linval Joseph. He has freakish athleticism for his massive frame. The former five-star recruit will be a classic Raven DT.Rookie Predictions:Daylon Mack will make a crucial stop on fourth-down in goal-line defense. Block eaters Pierce Youth Willie Snead Jersey , Williams and Mack will allow Peanut and company to destroy ball-carriers behind the LOS. Mack will receive 10-20 snaps per game, and will replace Pierce or Williams should they prove to be too pricey to stay in Baltimore.Mack will also enjoy a bevvy of seafood during his time in Charm City: On a day where the Ravens saw the highest of highs and lowest of lows in a single game, Lamar Jackson led the team to a 24-21 come from behind victory. Baltimore trailed 21-13 near the end of the third quarter. Jackson threw an ugly interception and was stopped short on fourth down on the first two drives of the second half. However, he battled back and led the offense down the field two times to amass ten points. With the Ravens now back into the wild-card picture, what will the future hold?1. Joe Romo? Joe Bledsoe? Joe Maddox?One of the biggest training camp and preseason storylines was the “quarterback controversy” in Baltimore. Head coach John Harbaugh, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, and quarterbacks coach James Urban all expressed that Joe Flacco is the starting quarterback barring injury. They even kept three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster for the first time since 2009. It was clear that the Ravens’ brass still believed in Joe Flacco. That notion was not entirely false, but Flacco did struggle in his last three games before suffering a hip injury. He led the Ravens to a 4-5 record and threw 12 touchdowns to six interceptions. Although Flacco had horrendous showings earlier in the year against the Bengals, Panthers, and Browns on the road, he was dominant against the Bills and Steelers (week 4). Against the Saints Stitched Robert Griffin Jersey , Flacco led a game-tying drive, where he was six-for-six for 66 yards and a touchdown on that final series. Overall, Flacco’s play left a lot to be desired through nine games of the season. He had equally as many remarkable moments as frustrating plays, including some that an 11th-year veteran should not have made. Regardless, the Ravens now could be on the verge of a legitimate quarterback controversy in the upcoming weeks. Despite Harbaugh announcing that “it will be tough” for Flacco to play next week due to his injury, Baltimore will eventually have to decide which quarterback gives them the best chance to win. 2. Class is in sessionLamar Jackson’s first NFL start ended with a win, but that is not to say that he was flawless. Jackson had a horrific interception, while also displaying some of his weaknesses. He often attempted to make something out of nothing, which in theory is great. However, sometimes throwing the ball away is the best option. Jackson had a similar tendency in college, and some of those plays resulted in turnovers. The other weakness he exhibited was his unwillingness to get out of bounds or protect himself. As the game progressed Youth Robert Griffin Jersey , Jackson improved with his awareness. However, the NFL has shown that quarterbacks who continue this style of play do not have long careers in the NFL. The other issue with the Ravens’ offense under Jackson was the heavy doses of the running game. Unlike the previous nine games, Baltimore had a ton of success in the ground game. They utilized concepts such as zone reads, bash, outside zone, and QB power among others. It worked against the Bengals, one of the worst defenses in the NFL, but against a more talented defense, will it work? The Ravens only attempted 19 passes to 54 rushing attempts. That ratio will not work against some of the high-octane offenses in the AFC. The positive spin on this would be that this was Jackson’s first start, and he was visibly nervous in the first half. He relied too heavily on his legs early in the game, but he was more comfortable in the pocket as the day progressed. Jackson made a couple of big-time throws en route to leading the Ravens’ to a come from behind victory. It was far from doom and gloom for Jackson. He showcased his athleticism Stitched Jordan Lasley Jersey , including a 21-yard run. Jackson is ‘slippery’ in space as he forced several defenders to whiff, but his most significant contribution is what his mere presence does for the rest of the offense. Jackson opened up running lanes for the running backs due to the defense overcommitting to him. 3. Doghouse?After bursting onto the scene last year, Alex Collins has had a relatively quiet 2018 campaign. His vision was always a significant question, and with more responsibility on zone concepts, Collins has struggled. He often hits the wrong running lanes and has failed to make defenders miss as he did a year ago. Collins may have scored a touchdown, but he was replaced by Gus Edwards, who out carried him 17-7. Edwards was perceived to be the fourth running back on the depth chart due to the addition of Ty Montgomery. That was far from the case on Sunday. Edwards finished second in rushing yards and clearly had the lion’s share of the carries. He had an impressive touchdown and also added a 17 yard gain. Along with the quarterback room, there will likely be a couple of changes occurring in the running back room as well.4. Same old Ravens?Following Baltimore’s victory over the Steelers in Week 4, Eric Weddle shouted during a press conference that this is not the ‘same old Ravens.’ The next several weeks did not age well for Weddle as that statement appeared to be false. It looked as if this were the same team in the sense that they failed to score points when they needed to and neglected to hold onto late leads. In week 11, the Ravens blew a 13-7 lead in the third quarter. However, unlike the old Ravens Youth Jordan Lasley Jersey , they battled back and retook the lead. The defense held their ground in the second half after giving up 14 unanswered points. They also made a crucial fourth down stand late in the game. 5. Allergy season?Much like last year, the Ravens are seemingly allergic to guarding tight ends. C.J. Uzomah finished with three catches for 41 yards, while Matt Lengel added a four-yard touchdown. Although those numbers may not jump off the stat sheets, the Ravens continue to struggle to limit opposing tight ends. Whether it is Tony Jefferson, Eric Weddle, or C.J. Mosley, the Ravens just do not have an answer for tight ends. With a slate consisting of some of the top tight ends in the league upcoming, Baltimore will need to find answers sooner rather than later.

The Chargers only lost four times during the regular season and they were able to get some payback for two of those defeats by beating the Chiefs and Broncos in their second meetings with their AFC West rivals.They’ll get a chance to answer another one of their losses in Baltimore on Sunday. The Ravens beat the Chargers 22-10 in Week 16 Stitched Jonathan Ogden Jersey , so it hasn’t been long since their first meeting and Chargers defensive end Isaac Rochell said that’s a good thing when it comes to dealing with the Baltimore offense.“It helps a lot because it’s fresh,” Rochell said, via ESPN.com. “You don’t have to dig weeks back or game plan for a team you’ve never seen before. So it’s good for us that we’ve seen them two weeks ago, and we just have to sharpen the game plan and get better, pick up on things that you didn’t pick up on the first time.”The Chargers held both Jackson and the Ravens as a whole to their fewest rushing yards since Jackson took over as the team’s starting quarterback, but safety Derwin James still expects Baltimore to try to run the ball right at them on Sunday.“You just have to play rules football, and you need every hat to the ball,” James said. “It’s not like a normal game where you’re like Youth Jonathan Ogden Jersey , ‘OK, he’s going to make the tackle.’ He might cut it back, so we need you.”While the Chargers defense will be trying for a repeat, the key to the game could be how the Chargers offense changes things up from last time. They were held to 198 yards in Week 16 and tight end Antonio Gates‘ fumble late in the fourth quarter in Baltimore territory resulted in a touchdown that put the game out of reach. COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers don’t need much of a refresher course on their first-round playoff opponent, considering they played them less than two weeks ago.The Chargers will make the cross-country trek for Sunday’s AFC wild-card round game against Baltimore, which won six of its final seven games to finish 10-6 and capture its first AFC North title since 2012. One of those wins came on Dec. 22 when the Ravens rallied in the second half to defeat the Chargers 22-10.That loss ended up costing Los Angeles (12-4) a chance at the AFC West and home field throughout the playoffs.“Round two. That’s all I can say about that. It’s round two and we have to get ready to play,” cornerback Desmond King said after Los Angeles defeated Denver 23-9 in the regular-season finale.The Chargers will be the first team Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson has faced twice. Jackson Stitched Ray Lewis Jersey , the 32nd overall draft pick in April, was held to 39 yards rushing against the Chargers, which was his lowest in seven starts. According to SportRadar, only 20.3 percent of Jackson’s rushing yards came after contact in the first five games, but against the Chargers all but 4 yards came after contact.Jackson was able to win with his arm as he completed 12 of 22 passes for a season-high 204 yards. He had come into the game averaging 146.2 passing yards. His best completion was a 67-yard touchdown to Mark Andrews during which Jackson took advantage of play action as he hit his tight end in stride after he split safeties Adrian Phillips and Jahleel Addae.“I’m not sure how much of an advantage it is going to be because he also gets a chance to see us a second time, too. It is going to be a chess match going into the game,” cornerback Casey Heyward Jr. said.The Chargers will have to adjust to another injury at linebacker after Jatavis Brown suffered a season-ending ankle injury at Denver. Hayes Pullard is expected to move into the spot, but Brown was one of the team’s better run stoppers and had a team-high eight tackles in the first meeting against the Ravens.Another concern is trying to get the offense back on track.Coach Anthony Lynn said he has some concerns but isn’t overly worried since he believes it can get fixed.Running back Melvin Gordon Youth Ray Lewis Jersey , who finished ninth in the AFC with 885 rushing yards, tweaked his ankle against Denver, but Lynn said he expects the fourth-year back to be available.Tight end Hunter Henry will work with the offense this week despite missing the entire season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during an offseason workout in May. The Chargers have until Jan. 7 to return him to the active roster or place him on injured reserve.Lynn said he has liked the progress he has seen from Henry during practices and that the knee is holding up. The biggest question is Henry’s level of football conditioning.Los Angeles is sticking to the regular schedule it uses for East Coast games. The players are off Tuesday before practices Wednesday through Friday. They will leave Friday afternoon for Baltimore and have a walkthrough Saturday.If recent history serves as a guide, the Chargers have done well in their second attempt against an AFC North champion in the playoffs. They lost to Cincinnati in Week 13 during the 2013 season but beat the Bengals in Cincinnati in the first round.As Lynn noted, not a lot is going to change in the brief time since they last played.“It’s all about execution right now. We just have to stop them,” Lynn said. “They’re a physical football team that makes you play very disciplined. We have to play better than we did the first time.”

Are there any veterans out there to help the secondary?"The Atlanta Falcons are a bit thin at cornerback as the official league year gets going. Desmond Trufant Qadree Ollison Atlanta Falcons Jersey , Isaiah Oliver, Damontae Kazee and Blidi Wreh-Wilson are the only guys around with playing experience, with Ryan Neal a young guy the team thinks highly of and promoted at the end of the season to the 53. Taveze Calhoun is also a practice squadder kept around by the Falcons at the end of year. The team could afford to add some veteran depth to the position, and there are a good number of names still out there on the free agency cycle who could fill that void. Let’s take a look at some names, shall we?Rashaan MelvinDeshawn Shead Neiko ThorpeKayvon WebsterCoty SensabaughDavon House Melvin, 6’2”, has the height the team loves at the position and had a career year in 2017 with the Colts before cashing in with Oakland in 2018 and falling a bit behind, according to PFF. The journeyman corner could very easily take the CB4 role for Atlanta and give them needed depth. He might be a hair pricey, though, for what the Falcons want. Shead is a former Seahawk who played with Dan Quinn and has definite understanding of the scheme. He played for the Lions last season before winding up on IR. He’s another CB4 candidate who could probably sign for the veteran minimum and bolster the depth. Thorpe played safety for the Seahawks last season and earned a 75.8 from PFF for his reps. He’s from Tucker, Georgia, too, so he’s a local. Our sister blog Field Gulls says he was mainly a special teams maven for the team, and that unit’s captain last season. He could play the Justin Bethel role in Atlanta this year. Webster is a special teams guy who could replace Bethel’s role on the roster. PFF graded him out with a stellar 81.9 for his snaps with the Texans last season, and could be a reliable guy to have around should injury strike.Sensabaugh was a draft pick of Ruston Webster with the Titans, who is now in the team’s front office aiding the scouting department. He’s been with the Rams Color Rush Qadree Ollison Jersey , Giants and Steelers as well, earning a respectable 65.7 from PFF in 2018.House is a longtime Packer who always excels on special teams, but only played in three games last year before missing the rest of the season. He’s got experience and is 6’0” to fit the eye test for Dan Quinn. He could wish to rebound on a one-year deal to test his 2020 market. Shead and Thorpe feel like the most likely of the ones listed, and perhaps there’s someone they’re thinking of we haven’t even considered. Are there any you have in mind? For the first time since 2012, the Falcons will be facing the Buccaneers in their season finale. They have rotated between facing Carolina and New Orleans over the past six years. Most of those games had playoff implications. Any chance of this game having playoff implications was erased in early December. Both organizations are looking to reload after disappointing seasons. With clear flaws on both sides of the ball, each team has plenty of work to do to challenge the Saints at the top of the division.Dan Quinn’s team does have an opportunity to end the season in a productive manner. Winning their last three games would give them solace in how they responded after enduring a five-game losing streak. The level of competition isn’t strong, but the quality of opposition shouldn’t hold much value in these circumstances. The Falcons were arguably the worst team in the league from Week 10 to Week 14. For them to respond with two definitive wins holds some credence. While it won’t save the jobs of certain coaches and players, another win can help them gain some confidence going into 2019.Takkarist McKinley’s recent surgeIt’s been a rollercoaster season for the 2017 first round pick. McKinley started off the season with an absolute bang. Producing five-and-half sacks in his first six games of the season was one of the few highlights on an otherwise abysmal defense. As the season began to unravel, McKinley became an anonymous figure. The emotional edge rusher stopped generating pressure off the right side. There were signs of him showing a lack of discipline by committing pre-snap penalties and personal fouls. His hand usage wasn’t affecting opposing tackles. If he couldn’t win with sheer power or explosiveness, opposing tackles would stonewall him.His inability to evolve was becoming a legitimate concern. With Vic Beasley failing to show the big-play ability that made him beloved in 2016, the pressure was on McKinley to develop into a consistent force. He hasn’t quite lived up to those lofty expectations, but there are inklings of progression in his overall game. The last two games have been encouraging for his development. A stat line of six QB hits, four penalties drawn, and a half sack over the past two games provides optimism. While the matchups were favorable, the coaching staff needed to see something following weeks of lackluster play. McKinley is starting to produce like he did in late 2017-early 2018.The Falcons desperately need another consistent difference-maker alongside Grady Jarrett. McKinley provides them their biggest hope on the current roster. His raw power and relentless motor always makes him a threat. It’s how he uses his hands, along with his timing off the ball Qadree Ollison Atlanta Falcons Jersey , will usually determine McKinley’s effectiveness. His impressive get off can put tackles in a world of trouble. That was on full display against Marshall Newhouse last week. Left tackle Donovan Smith is known for his lapses, which can play right into his hands. McKinley will need to be wary of Jameis Winston’s playmaking ability, particularly on third down. The enigmatic quarterback leads the NFL in third down success per ESPN’s NFL Matchup. Creating pressure and forcing him to make off-balance throws is how the Falcons’ defense can reduce his impressive conversion rate. Expect McKinley to play a major part in their efforts towards rattling him.Brian Hill takes on a featured roleThe 2017 fifth round pick received his first genuine opportunity to carry the workload last week. It’s been a strange journey for Hill following his brief stint in Cincinnati last season. After initially giving up on him, the Falcons gave him another chance to show his capabilities. Hill’s physical downhill running style gives them a different unique look. They currently don’t have that type of running back on the roster. A player like Hill could help them solve a year-long issue of converting in short-yardage situations. Their woes have become so drastic that Mohamed Sanu running the wildcat is their most effective way to convert on third or fourth and short.Hill didn’t waste time capitalizing on a golden opportunity. On eight carries, he ran with purpose in embracing contact at every angle. Lowering his shoulder to run past James Bradberry showcased his willingness to dish out punishment to make up for his lack of elusiveness. It didn’t take long to realize Hill was playing with a point to prove. Some of his attempts to impress did result in hurting the team. An impressive 21-yard run was negated by a careless personal foul penalty, where Hill got reckless in trying to stiff arm Donte Jackson. Trying to hurdle over Jackson led to an unforced fumble on the next drive putting the Panthers in excellent field position.These setbacks shouldn’t diminish a strong performance from Hill. With more experience, you’d expect a talented back to play with more composure. How he fares on Sunday could play a role in how the coaching staff views him going into 2019. While the young back will certainly get a chance in preseason, the chance to handle a major workload rarely happens on a team with so much talent in the backfield. Tevin Coleman’s status remains unclear, yet it shouldn’t drastically affect the chances of Hill receiving ten carries or more. This is his time to shine against a slowly-improving Tampa Bay front seven. Potential last game for both coordinatorsThere has been a growing discussion about the Falcons making changes across their coaching staff. It shouldn’t be a major surprise, considering how often the Falcons have been out-schemed this season. How they failed to adjust in games against Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Baltimore after poor starts was alarming. To get repeatedly torn apart in a certain aspect of a game doesn’t simply come from a talent standpoint. It reveals the flaws within a coaching staff’s inability to devise legitimate solutions.Despite showing signs of improvement this season, there is enough evidence to suggest Steve Sarkisian is bound to be replaced. The embattled offensive coordinator hasn’t gotten enough out of an offense filled with playmakers. Most offensive-minded coaches would drool over what the Falcons have on paper and build them back into a top-five offense. That hasn’t happened under Sarkisian. Between his frustrating tendencies to not utilizing dynamic players effectively at a consistent rate, Sarkisian has played a significant role in their offensive decline over the past two seasons. He has called two consecutive solid games, but that remains insignificant in the larger scheme of things. Not being able to put together efficient game plans against top defenses has costed the Falcons in several games.Marquand Manuel remains in a similar position. Unlike Sarkisian, the former defensive back has been vocal about his position. It’s not something you often see from coordinators. Manuel is clearly passionate about everything he’s done in Atlanta. The defense was legitimately good last season. Due to numerous injuries and high draft picks failing to play up to expectations Youth Qadree Ollison Jersey , it’s been a disastrous season for a once-promising unit. Manuel hasn’t done himself any favors by sticking with a mostly bland, conservative approach for most of the season. It wasn’t until the game against Green Bay, where the defense started running more blitzes and disguising their coverage looks. Similar to Sarkisian, the late-season positive moves likely won’t change Quinn’s final decision. Both coordinators will likely be coaching their final game in Atlanta. It will be interesting to see if they can out-think what many consider to be a below-average coaching staff in Tampa Bay.Containing Mike EvansWhen it comes to “Falcons’ killers”, it’s hard to look past what Evans has done in recent years. The explosive playmaker has been a matchup nightmare for Quinn’s defense. His large frame, speed, athleticism, and physicality to win against press coverage makes him a difficult matchup for any cornerback. It’s remarkable that his own team keeps him from establishing himself as a top-five wide receiver. That’s how chaotic Tampa Bay has been over the past two seasons. For all their issues, Evans’ consistency is a testament to his deserved status as an exceptional player.It’s difficult to measure how the Falcons will try to limit Evans. Without any playoff stakes, they may decide to try something different. Manuel will likely mix in zone coverage looks at some point to prevent Evans from getting behind the secondary. Will he try to be more aggressive with his approach in forcing players such as Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries to beat them? That could prove to be an issue. Todd Monken is known for being unpredictable by using a variety of different alignments to keep defenses guessing. Every cornerback will get their fair share of Evans. How many times they will face the former second-team All-Pro in man remains the biggest question.The idea of using Isaiah Oliver to cover Evans is something that will be considered. A big reason behind drafting him in the second-round was based on his tall stature and long arms. Quinn has been a long admirer of tall, physical cornerbacks. That was evident when he didn’t waste time drafting Jalen Collins in the second round of his first draft as a head coach. Due to Collins’ transgressions, he had to draft another corner with a similar build three years later. Allowing Oliver to cover Evans can prove to be valuable experience against someone you’d expect to see him match up against for years to come. After witnessing Robert Alford get routinely torched by Evans for years, what is the worst that could possibly happen? Quinn and Manuel have been more ambitious recently. It’s time for them to take it one step further in ending the season on a positive note.

PHOENIX — The Arizona Cardinals have hired former Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury D.J. Swearinger Jersey 2019 , a move aimed at providing guidance for young quarterback Josh Rosen and resuscitating the worst offense in the NFL.The Cardinals announced the hiring Tuesday after a long interview earlier in the day, saying Kingsbury had agreed to terms on a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth. He was to be introduced at a news conference at the team's training facility in Tempe on Wednesday.Kingsbury was fired after going 35-40 in six seasons at Texas Tech, but his teams were known for their high-scoring performances. His prize pupil in those days was current Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Tuesday's hiring came barely a month after Kingsbury was hired as offensive coordinator at USC.Kingsbury, also a former offensive coordinator at Texas A&M where he worked with Johnny Manziel, replaces Steve Wilks KeeSean Johnson Arizona Cardinals Jersey , who was fired after going an NFL-worst 3-13 in his one season in Arizona.That means Kingsbury will take over a team with the No. 1 overall draft pick, along with a bevy of other picks and lots of salary cap space.Coming soon to a /OrofBAEB3I— FOX Sports Arizona ( /ztNaCkUnk9— FOX Sports Arizona ( pleting 55 percent of his passes for 2,278 yards and 11 touchdowns with 14 intercepts and a 66.7 quarterback rating.Rosen, who was picked 10th overall in last year's draft, is probably the No. 1 reason Kingsbury got the job.The Cardinals' record last year was their worst in 18 years and matched the worst since the franchise moved to the desert from St. Louis in 1988.

Let’s ease our collective hangovers and dive in to that and more with today’s Falcoholinks.Welcoming Stocker and Barner The Falcons overhauled their offensive line by bringing in guards Jamon Brown and James Carpenter, and they continued their action in free agency by signing tight end Luke Stocker and running back/returner Kenjon Barner. For Luke Stocker, it’s a two-year deal Youth Ryan Schraeder Jersey , while Kenjon Barner was inked to a one-year contract. To that end, the Falcons also elected to bring back blocking tight end Logan Paulsen.The Coming Cap Situation The Falcons have drafted very well of late, and the obvious downside to having solid, young players is that they’re all about to get extremely expensive. The team has already hit star defender Grady Jarrett with the franchise tag, and Deion Jones, Keanu Neal Stitched Andy Levitre Jersey , and Austin Hooper are nearing the end of their rookie contracts. With the money being tossed around in free agency, things are about to get very pricey for the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcoholic’s David Walker is out with a bit of an explainer as to what we can expect for the team’s cap situation over the next couple of seasons. Departures While the Falcons added to their personnel this week, they also bid farewell to a couple of players. Wide receiver/returner Marvin Hall is headed to the Bears, special teamer and backup corner Justin Bethel received a contract from the Ravens, and cornerback Brian Poole secured a $3.5 million deal from the Jets. There’s nothing official yet, but offensive guard Andy Levitre announced on Instagram that he would not be returning to Atlanta. The Falcons have enjoyed depth in the backfield Youth Andy Levitre Jersey , but they have too long of a line of other players to pay now.Via Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com, the Falcons are expected to watch running back Tevin Coleman to walk into free agency 鈥?thus out the door forever.“Tevin’s going to do well, wherever he is,” General Manager Thomas Dimitroff said at the Scouting Combine, before catching himself and adding: “Whether he is with us or whether he goes somewhere else.”Coleman will be an unrestricted free agent on March 13, and ought to have a decent amount of interest 鈥?despite a softening market at his position.The Falcons have already paid his backfield mate Devonta Freeman (and several others including quarterback Matt Ryan) Stitched Jake Matthews Jersey , and are busy this offseason trying to retain defensive tackle Grady Jarrett and find a long-term solution for wide receiver Julio Jones. With all those commitments, it’s probably not realistic to keep a complementary back.But Coleman ran for 800 yards and averaged 4.8 yards per carry last year while Freeman battled injuries, so it’s also reasonable to think he can be more than a complement elsewhere. That would leave the second back role to Ito Smith in Atlanta, as Coleman’s likely to look elsewhere.

ESPN predicts Ravens will have two top 100 NFL players this season The Baltimore Ravens aren’t typically known for having flashy Youth Javorius Allen Jersey , marketable players that appeal to the national landscape, and that again appears to be true in 2018. Their team looks to be built to win with good defense, special teams, and (hopefully) solid offensive output.This type of philosophy doesn’t always lend itself to a ton of national media attention when the beginning of the football year rolls around, and while some pundits like Baltimore’s chances of returning to the playoffs this year, there isn’t a ton of buzz surrounding the singular pieces that comprise the squad. This is noticeable in a recent ESPN post that predicts who the top 100 NFL players will be in 2018.The Ravens placed two on the list, and you can probably guess who they are - C.J. Mosley checks in at number 81 and Marshal Yanda ranks number 99. The list makers consulted with ESPN’s Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley to give a quick blurb on each player Stitched Kenneth Dixon Jersey , starting with Mosley:This is high praise from Lewis who was once the best middle linebacker in the NFL himself. Mosley’s coverage issues are well documented, but other than that he certainly is in the conversation for the game’s elite at the position.Hensley goes on to give thoughts on Yanda, who returns to action after suffering a season ending ankle injury last year:Even at his relatively advanced age, Yanda ought to be feared by defensive fronts this season. When healthy, he is absolutely one of the top guards in the league, and is now entering the conversation as one of the all time greats.While it would’ve been nice to see more Baltimore players on this list, the argument will always be made that you have to earn it. Among some potentially notable omissions are Eric Weddle Youth Kenneth Dixon Jersey , Jimmy Smith, Brandon Williams and Terrell Suggs, who have a whole season in front of them to go out and command national respect. The Cincinnati Bengals are riding high after taking care of business last Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens to get to 2-0 and claim sole possession of the AFC North. Through two weeks, the Bengals look every bit the part of a contender for the division crown, and as such, you’d think they’d have a read on what’s going on around it. Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick certainly seems to, having just penned a well written article for the Players’ Tribune about the seven best players the AFC North has to offer. At least one player from each of the four teams makes an appearance Stitched Morgan Cox Jersey , and two of them are on the Baltimore Ravens.The first of which is a new face to the division - wide receiver Michael Crabtree checking in at number 7:In reference to the 2016 matchup between Oakland and Baltimore, Kirkpatrick says he definitely understands why the Ravens front office chose to go after him when he became available:After some serious woes at the position that seemed especially pronounced last year, it’s good to see a Ravens player at the position get some love. Crabtree is seemingly settling in nicely as the go to chain mover for the next Raven on Kirkpatrick’s list.Quarterback Joe Flacco checks in at number 4:Flacco has experienced a bit of a fall from grace since hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, but it’s clear that certain players still have respect for what he can do. Kirkpatrick seems to be one of them, noting that despite his shift from an aggressive mindset to a more tight one, Flacco still has the tools to get it done.In terms of the rest of the list, it fully reads out as follows:7. Crabtree6. CB Joe Haden5. DE Myles Garrett 4. Flacco 3. QB Ben Roethlisberger2. WR A.J. GreenWR Antonio BrownIt’s definitely an interesting list Youth Morgan Cox Jersey , and an even better read when you notice Kirkpatrick doesn’t allow any bias to come into play. Two of the top three players are Steelers, and the only Bengal he lists is A.J. Green at two who could easily be argued for number one. It’s certainly worth a look to get an insight on some of the strengths and weaknesses of players around the division from as primary a source as you can get. We’ll see just how correct (or otherwise) Kirkpatrick is moving forward as the AFC North continues to take shape.

Greg Olsen won’t be able to try another comeback with the Panthers this year.Next year remains up in the air.According to Jourdan Rodrigue of the  Womens DJ Moore Jersey , the Panthers are putting the veteran tight end on injured reserve, officially ending his season.Of course Donte Jackson Jersey White , he effectively admitted he was done for the year after tearing the plantar fascia in his oft-injured right foot in Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers.He missed nine games last year with a Jones fracture in his right foot, but missed three games earlier this year when the same problem re-emerged. He opted not to have surgery https://www.pantherslockerroom.com/authentic-dj-moore-jersey , but the foot finally let go Sunday.Having two seasons defined by injuries is a cruel fate for Olsen, who previously was one of the most durable and talented players at his position. He went nearly 10 years without missing a game https://www.pantherslockerroom.com/authentic-curtis-samuel-jersey , and became the first tight end to ever post three straight 1,000-yard seasons.The 33-year-old signed a contract extension in April which carries him through the 2020 season Blue Matt Paradis Jersey , but he wasn’t willing to speculate about his own future in the aftermath of the injury. I’m having a hard time reading this game."If Panthers quarterback Cam Newton were healthy and playing I would jump all over the three points. It might actually not be three points...or would it. My prediction site The Linebacker thinks the Panthers will win this one outright.With back-up quarterback Taylor Heinicke subbing for the injured Newton I don’t know what to expect from the Panthers offense. I’d love for Heinicke to lead a rout of the division rival Falcons. I see no downside from that even if it means a lower draft pick. It would be nice to snap the losing streak. I don’t want to take that into the next season.One bright spot from Heinicke starting is it means we can run pass plays longer than 20 yards again. It was apparent in the Saints game Newton’s arm had a fraction of the strength we are used to seeing. I hope he actually gets surgery so we don’t risk a lingering problem that bleeds into the 2019 season. As I said in the opening the Panthers are a three point home underdog. I wouldn’t touch this game one way or the other. If the Panthers defense from last week shows up the Falcons can be in trouble. If Heinicke plays like the inexperienced player he is then he will make mistakes and the scoring could be low. On my homer side though, Heinicke played pretty good in the preseason and with Norv Turner at the helm he could limit Heinicke’s risky throws. Plus he has running back Christian McCaffrey to hand off and throw to so there is that. If I were to bet on this game (and I’m not damn it) I would take the over at 44.5.Anyone have a feel for this game one way or the other? Meaning are you confident Heinicke will play well? How about he simply protects the ball and makes enough throws to extend drives?On the defensive side Matt Paradis Jersey 2019 , do you think the good defense will show up again at home? Will the pass rush finally resurrect itself? It’s a crap shoot for sure.

How the new pieces fit in and what might be left to address in Rounds 4-7."After two days and three draft picks — with a free agent signing thrown in the middle of it all — the Titans have added four players to their roster: defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons with the 19th overall pick Adam Humphries Jersey , defensive lineman Brent Urban on a one year free agent contract, wide receiver A.J. Brown with the 51st overall pick, and guard Nate Davis with the 82nd overall pick. They’ll add a few more picks on Saturday, but let’s give a quick reset of the roster with the new additions to see where they might go with their final scheduled picks.QuarterbackOn Roster: Marcus Mariota, Ryan Tannehill, Logan WoodsideThe Titans will likely add one more arm to this group, even if it’s just a “camp arm” to give them enough quarterbacks to keep the wide receivers and tight ends busy during practice. There have been some hints that they might consider keeping three QBs on the 53 man roster this year so don’t be surprised if they grab a late round passer for the second straight year. I love Brett Rypien from Boise State among the guys left on the board with Ryan Finley from NC State being another interesting option. The Titans also worked out a bunch of UDFA type QBs during the pre-draft process so if they don’t take one with a pick, expect one to be signed shortly after the draft. Running BackOn Roster: Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis, David Fluellen, Jeremy McNichols, and Dalyn DawkinsThe top two backs are pretty much chiseled in stone here, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see the Titans take a running back today. Dion Lewis is approaching 30 and Derrick Henry is entering the final year of his rookie deal. Another running back would give them some flexibility moving forward.I love Justice Hill from Oklahoma State and Trayveon Williams from Texas A&M among the day three options. Kansas State’s Alex Barnes is one of my favorites as well. Wide ReceiverOn Roster: Corey Davis, Adam Humphries, A.J. Brown, Taywan Taylor, Tajae Sharpe, Cameron Batson, Darius Jennings, Devin Ross, Roger Lewis, Kalif RaymondThe Titans are in much better shape at wide receiver than they have been in a long time after the additions of Humphries and Brown. Both should contribute right away. They also push Taylor and Sharpe down to more natural spots on the depth chart for them. Taylor’s deep speed can still be used when needed without having to rely on him in the red zone or critical third downs. Sharpe is in real danger of not making the roster if he can’t beat out Taylor in camp because he doesn’t contribute on special teams and WR5 is most definitely a special teams spot first and foremost on an NFL roster.There is still some pretty appealing receiver talent on the board, including a guy that many would have liked to see taken in round one: Iowa State’s Hakeem Butler. I don’t think the Titans need to double dip here, but at some point, Butler’s 6’-6” frame, 7-foot wingspan, and 4.48 speed is going to be too good a value to pass up. Outside of Butler, Missouri’s Emanuel Hall, Georgia’s Riley Ridley, NC State’s Kelvin Harmon, and Auburn’s Darius Slayton lead a stacked group of day three receivers. It will be interesting to see if the Titans are tempted to jump back in here.Tight EndOn Roster: Delanie Walker, Jonnu Smith, MyCole Pruitt http://www.thetitanslockerroom.com/authentic-brynden-trawick-jersey , Anthony Firkser, Cole Wick, Keith TowbridgeThis is a spot the Titans haven’t really touched this offseason which shows a lot of faith in Delanie Walker’s ability to return to his 2017 form after that horrific injury in Miami last year. It’s also a vote of confidence in Jonnu Smith and the other young tight ends that flashed towards the end of last year. That being said, I’d be surprised if the Titans didn’t add something here either on day three or through a priority UDFA. Stanford’s Kaden Smith, West Virginia’s Trevon Wesco, Notre Dame’s Alize Mack, Georgia’s Isaac Nauta, and LSU’s Foster Moreau are among the best available entering the fourth round, but don’t sleep on my guy Anthony Beck from Texas. He had great size/speed testing numbers at the Longhorns pro day and was a mauler in the run game during his time on the 40 acres. A former linebacker that plays with an aggressive physical edge. He’d be a great late addition.Offensive LineOn Roster: Taylor Lewan, Rodger Saffold, Jack Conklin, Ben Jones, Dennis Kelly, Nate Davis, Kevin Pamphile, Corey Levin, Aaron Stinnie, Hroniss Grasu, Austin Pasztor, Tyler Marz, David Quessenberry, Jamil DouglasThe Titans waited a bit to address offensive line in the draft, finally snagging Nate Davis at pick 82. I don’t blame Jon Robinson for waiting given the way the board fell — Simmons and Brown were too good of values to pass up at those spots and at positions of need also — but I’m not 100% sure Davis walks in as a clear day one starter. He might, and that would be great, but I’m not sure it’s a slam dunk for him over Pamphile, Levin, and Stinnie. And I still maintain that Stinnie is a dark horse candidate to push for a starting gig. The Titans probably don’t need to double dip here if they really love Davis though (and all indications are that they do). My guess is they stand pat and let this interior offensive line shake out with the guys they’ve got, but if they do return to this group Oklahoma’s Dru Samia, Ohio State’s Michael Jordan, Mississippi State’s Shaq Calhoun, Arkansas’s Hjalte Froholdt, Wisconsin’s Beau Benzschawel, and Wake Forest’s Phil Haynes are good interior options. The top tackles include South Carolina’s Dennis Daley http://www.thetitanslockerroom.com/authentic-taywan-taylor-jersey , Elon’s Oli Udoh, and Ohio State’s Isaiah Prince. Interior Defensive LineOn Roster: Jurrell Casey, Jeffery Simmons, DaQuan Jones, Brent Urban, Austin Johnson, Matt Dickerson, Darius Kilgo, Dee LinerLike wide receiver, the Titans have double dipped here this offseason, adding Jeffery Simmons and Brent Urban. Simmons will almost certainly start the season on PUP so the Titans might still look to add one more piece here if the right guy is available.Texas’ Charles Omenihu is a guy that has really slid down the board after being rumored as a possible late first round pick and probable second round pick through much of the draft process. He’s a bit of a tweener for a 3-4 front, but I think he’d fit best inside in the Titans base defense. Iowa’s Anthony Nelson is a very similar player too. Somewhere between an edge rusher and an interior defensive lineman, these guys have tremendous length and could be chess pieces in the Titans multiple front defense. Both would be great values at this point in the draft. Texas A&M’s Daylon Mack, Washington’s Greg Gaines, and Arizona State’s Renell Wren are some other options that could interest me. They’re all true nose tackles that could give the Titans that rock in the middle that they haven’t had in years.Edge RusherOn Roster: Cameron Wake, Harold Landry, Sharif Finch, Kamalei Correa, Gimel President, LaTroy Lewis This is the spot that seems most likely to be addressed, though Jon Robinson has consistently stated throughout the offseason that he “likes the guys we’ve got there”. Every time he says that I can’t help but think about Sharif Finch. I think there are a ton of signs that the team loves Finch and I can see why.However, that doesn’t mean they won’t spend a pick there on day three. I would imagine they will and there is a good chance that’s where they go at 121 in my opinion. There are some big time talents still out there too, led by Eastern Michigan’s Maxx Crosby. He was a productive college player with monster athletic testing numbers and some good bend on tape. If he’s there at 121, he’s my guy and I really wouldn’t mind a move up to get him. Other top options include Georgia’s D’Andre Walker, Alabama’s Christian Miller, Oregon’s Jalen Jelks, and Oklahoma State’s Jordan Brailford.Inside LinebackersOn Roster: Wesley Woodyard, Jayon Brown, Rashaan Evans, Daren Bates, Nigel HarrisThe Titans are great with the top end of this position with Woodyard, Brown, and Evans making one of the best trios in the NFL Josh Kline Jersey , but they need depth and I think this is a position that’s firmly in play for a pick on day three. The Titans met with a bunch of inside linebackers, but they showed the most interest in Minnesota’s Blake Cashman who remains on the board heading into the fourth round. He’s a guy that I wouldn’t be surprised to see at 121. Alabama’s Mack Wilson is one of the surprises at the top of draft boards as well and would be a great addition to an already good group here. Washington’s Ben Burr-Kirven is another option that the Titans showed interest in during the draft process. All these guys would be key special teams players and depth in 2019.CornerbackOn Roster: Logan Ryan, Adoree’ Jackson, Malcolm Butler, LeShaun Sims, Tye Smith, Josh Kalu, Kenneth DurdenLike inside linebacker, the Titans are set at the top at corner. Butler, Ryan, and Jackson will be the top three with Sims providing good depth behind them. However, with Butler and Ryan both getting older and Ryan and Sims heading into the final year of their contracts, the Titans could use a young corner they felt good about to give them some roster options moving forward into 2020 and beyond.James Madison’s Jimmy Moreland is a guy the Titans showed interest in throughout the process that could be a pick today. Notre Dame’s Julian Love and Penn State’s Amani Oruwayire are sticking out as the top two “fallers” on draft boards right now and should hear their names called early. Oregon’s Ugo Amadi is something of a corner/safety hybrid — similar to how many viewed Dane Cruikshank last year — and could be a fit here. I will personally be rooting for him because he went to my high school (John Overton) here in Nashville. SafetyOn Roster: Kevin seems to like Webb, keeping him around all year and he might get a shot at the roster here in camp, but the team usually keeps five safeties and they’re still short even counting Webb.Amadi, who I mentioned at corner, would be a good flexible piece and you know the Titans love versatility. However, this is another spot with some high profile guys that have dropped. Florida’s Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Iowa’s Amani Hooker, and Alabama’s Deionte Thompson highlight that group and would be great value picks in round four. The Titans also showed some interest in the speedy Zedrick Woods from Ole Miss during the pre-draft process.SpecialistsOn Roster: Ryan Succop, Brett Kern, Beau BrinkleyNothing to see here, move along. The week of return to health for the Titans continued on Friday. There are only 3 players that have an injury designation for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. David Fluellen and Dennis Kelly are both out. The thing with Kelly is really weird. It sounds like they still don’t really know what’s going on there. Hopefully they get it figured out soon. Blaine Gabbert is listed as questionable. The big names you don’t see on that list, Marcus Mariota, Jack Conklin and Adoree Jackson, will all be ready to go on Sunday. Also, huge congratulations to Jurrell Casey who missed practice today for the birth of his son.On the Eagles side, the names of note are Darren Sproles, who is out, Alshon Jeffery, who is questionable after returning to practice on Wednesday but missing Thursday and Friday with the flu, and Corey Clement who is also questionable. My guess is that we see both Jeffery and Clement in some capacity.

After a couple weeks off Cheap Amani Oruwariye Jersey , First Byte is back to preview the Detroit Lions’ penultimate game. This week, the Lions have a chance at revenge against an NFC North rival that seemed to send the team on a downward spiral toward the end of the season. The Minnesota Vikings are playing for the playoff position, the Lions are playing for pride.So we took a little different angle on this week’s podcast. While we still do tackle the game and offer some predictions, for the first half of the podcast, we focus on fired offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. The former Vikings play-caller came into the 2018 season as one of the hottest coaching candidates on the market.What went wrong in Minny? Was DeFilippo all to blame or was he the scapegoat? Is he still a viable OC candidate Amani Oruwariye Jersey Womens , and would he be a fit in Detroit?We brought in Eric Thompson from Daily Norseman to help give us the background and answer these questions:This week on First Byte:What went wrong with the Vikings offense this year, and is everything fixed after a huge game against the Dolphins?Has John DeFilippo ruined all of his good will? Eric isn’t sure, and he thinks he may have been a bad fit with head coach Mike Zimmer.If the Lions are in the market, would DeFilippo be a fit with Matt Patricia? Is he what the Lions are looking for? The gang breaks down a daunting matchup for the Lions.Snacks or No Snacks? That could be a huge difference on Sunday. Eric thinks there’s one way the Lions offense could beat the Vikings defense, and his name rhymes with Penny Holiday.

He also had 32 receptions for 213 yards and a score. Johnson ran for a season-high 158 yards in a win at Miami and had 101 yards rushing in a victory over New England.“We have to keep the run game going like we’ve been doing since Kerryon got hurt,” coach Matt Patricia said. “Kerryon, obviously, was great when he was out there and it’s part of the season of growing and learning as a young player, but right now it’s all about the Vikings for us and the players that we have.”Johnson Amani Oruwariye Jersey 2019 , a second-round draft pick from Auburn, has rushed for more yards this season than any Detroit player since 2014 — despite playing in only 10 games.Detroit added depth at running back by signing running back Justin Stockton to the practice squad and cutting guard Salesi Uhatafe from it.Agnew’s return could help. He was an All-Pro last season as a rookie after returning two punts for touchdowns. He also plays cornerback.“He’s someone that works really hard and has really done everything we’ve asked to push through his situation,” Patricia said. “I think in the beginning part of the year and really through the spring, there was a lot of growth and a lot of development there, not only in special teams but on defense Amani Oruwariye Jersey Womens , which was great to see.”

Bengals practice squad players who have gone on to contribute in the NFL One of the staples of the Marvin Lewis era with the Cincinnati Bengals is in the more frequent hitting on draft picks. A major plague on the years preceding Lewis’ tenure was in the team whiffing on high draft picks—be it from injury or otherwise. Sure Alex Erickson Jersey White , there have been some major misses on prospects with Lewis at the helm, but there’s no doubt that they are of much lower-profiles than that of those of the 1990s. And, part of the team’s heavy reliance on the draft is in their stockpiling of talent to stow away on the practice squad. With the announcement of the 2018 53-man roster on Saturday came the subsequent declaration of their practice squad. Here are the players on the practice squad:TE Moritz B枚hringer (first-year player, Aalen [Germany])*DT Andrew Brown (rookie, Virginia)HB Quinton Flowers (rookie, South Florida)H-B Jordan Franks (rookie, Central Florida)CB C.J. Goodwin (third-year player, California [Pa.])C Brad Lundblade (rookie, Oklahoma State)OT Kent Perkins (first-year player, Texas)CB KeiVarae Russell (third-year player, Notre Dame)WR Kermit Whitfield (first-year player, Florida State)LB Chris Worley (rookie, Ohio State)QB Christian Hackenberg (third-year player Andrew Billings Jersey White , Penn State)There are some names on the squad who either could contribute in the future, or have already done so in some capacity. However, there have been past examples of practice squad players being brought up to the Bengals’ active roster and putting their stamp on things. Here are some of the past contributors to the Bengals under Marvin Lewis after getting their start on the practice squad:Brian Hill, 2017: Although some are wondering why Hill wasn’t on this year’s list, he came in at the end of last year when injuries hit Joe Mixon and Jeremy Hill. He had 11 carries for 37 yards and two receptions for 36 yards last season. KeiVarae Russell, 2016-current: He’s bounced on and off of the Bengals’ active roster, but has contributed for Cincinnati in the past. Russell has played in 13 games the past two seasons, while logging eight tackles and an interception. Alex Redmond, 2016-current: Redmond is in the running for the Bengals’ right guard gig and has been on the team for the past couple of seasons. He played in five games for the Bengals last year. Trey Hopkins, 2014-current: The Bengals seem to like what’s ahead for Hopkins, as he seems to be in the lead to start at right guard again this season. He started 12 games last year for the Bengals and they hope he can improve along with other changes they made on the line this offseason. T.J. Johnson, 2013-2018: Unfortunately, Johnson was just released by the Bengals Jeff Driskel Jersey White , but he was a valuable member of the team as a backup player on the offensive line. He was used as both a guard and center. James Develin, 2010-2012: Develin didn’t do much with the Bengals, but he’s gone on to have a great career with the Patriots. He’s made a Pro Bowl and won two Super Bowls with New England. He recently signed a big contract to stick with them until 2020.Clinton McDonald, 2009-2010: The former Memphis defensive lineman is a great success story. Though he only played two seasons with the Bengals, he’s still currently playing in the NFL— though he was just cut by the Denver Broncos. He only notched four tackles with the Bengals, but has done some good things elsewhere. McDonald was traded to the Seattle Seahawks by the Bengals for Kelly Jennings. Dan Skuta, 2009-2012: Skuta was a valuable member to the Bengals’ special teams crew, which then propelled him to a big contract with the 49ers. In four seasons with Cincinnati, Skuta started four games and racked up 48 tackles, while also forcing two fumbles. Nate Livings, 2006-2011: Though he was a fan whipping boy for quite some time, Livings truly had a rags-to-riches story in the NFL. He hung around the practice squad for 2006 and 2007, and then was promoted to the active roster in 2008. He was then a starting guard from 2009-2011 Womens John Ross Jersey , while swapping some starts with Evan Mathis in his first season as a starter. He went on to start every game with the Dallas Cowboys in 2012 after signing a lucrative contract. Kyle Cook, 2007-2014: The former center might be one of the finest examples of a practice squad success story for the Bengals and under Lewis’ watch. After being released by the Vikings as a rookie, Cincinnati pounced on the former Michigan State Spartan. He played on special teams in 2008 and then went on to start 66 games at center. He wasn’t the best center this team has seen, but was definitely solid in his prime. Herana-Daze Jones, 2006-2007: The defensive back was on the team’s final roster in 2006 and 2007 and led the squad in special teams both of those years. Jones played in 31 games for the Bengals over three seasons and accumulated 45 total tackles. The Bengals hired Jemal Singleton as their newest running backs coach. He is coming over from the Oakland Raiders after spending a season at the same position and coaching alongside with Brian Callahan, Cincinnati’s newest offensive coordinator. This is Singleton’s third stop in four years in the NFL. Singleton didn’t have much to work with last season in Oakland. He did get 4.2 yards per carry out of Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin in 2018, which all considering is pretty good. He hasn’t had a back like Joe Mixon to work with, so it should be interesting what his role will be with helping these running backs adjust to this new offense.The Bengals added Singleton after the team let Kyle Caskey go this offseason as they prepared to add Taylor when he became officially available. Caskey had been with the team since 2010. He had been the team’s running backs’ coach since 2014, and helped Mixon lead the AFC in rushing this past season. You could make the argument that Mixon’s struggles were more to do with scheme and inconsistent offensive line play.One has to wonder how this move will play out as Caskey has a pretty good track record. Not to say Singleton doesn’t, but it could’ve been nice to have experience at that position of a guy who already showed signs of success. Of course it could be that Singleton can tap even more into Mixon’s potential and find a way to better utilize Bernard in the offense.What do you think of the Singleton hire?

Quarterback Cody Kessler has taken the Jacksonville Jaguars to a new low in 2018.The Jaguars (4-10) have totaled 658 yards in three games since Kessler replaced inconsistent starter Blake Bortles Quinton Spain Jersey , including a season-low 192 yards in a 16-13 loss to Washington on Sunday. It's the franchise's worst three-game stretch of offense since Blaine Gabbert's second year in 2012.But coach Doug Marrone doesn't plan on switching back to Bortles for the final two games of the season, beginning at Miami (7-7) on Sunday."All the players, we're telling them just to be ready to go," Marrone said Monday. "It's hard to evaluate when there's a high level of inconsistency around you."The Jaguars have apparently moved on from Bortles, the third overall pick in the 2014 draft, and want to see whether Kessler deserves to be on the roster next season. Top decision-maker Tom Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell traded a conditional seventh-round draft pick to Cleveland to acquire Kessler as a backup in March.Jacksonville is expected to draft a quarterback in April and sign an experienced starter to bridge whatever gap might be needed to get the rookie onto the field. Kessler could remain as a third option. He's due to make a little more than $900,000 in 2019.Nonetheless, Kessler isn't exactly securing his future in Jacksonville.Kessler has led the offense to one touchdown 鈥?a second-half scoring pass in a lopsided game at Tennessee 鈥?and four field goals in 31 possessions. It's the first time in franchise history that the Jags have managed just one offensive touchdown during any three-game stretch."We're not being able to make plays," Marrone said. "Run-game wise, we're not being consistent enough and I'm responsible for that, so that falls on me."Kessler completed 9 of 17 passes for 57 yards against the Redskins, failing to complete one that traveled more than 10 yards in the air. He was sacked six times, but also ran for a team-leading 68 yards. He moved the chains on four third-down scrambles and picked up another 14 yards on a third-and-long play to get Kai Forbath a closer field goal.Although Marrone acknowledged that Bortles could provide a spark for the team's listless offense Will Compton Jersey White , he said it's not all Kessler's fault. Marrone pointed to protection problems and a lack of a running game for the continued struggles.The Jaguars, who have lost nine of their last 10 games, started nine offensive players against Washington who were either backups or not on the roster when the season began in September. Running back Leonard Fournette and right guard A.J. Cann were the only two carry-overs from the opener, and Fournette touched the ball just once in the second half of a close game.So Kessler was surrounded by several guys who wouldn't be playing had it not been for a rash of injuries."It's tough obviously when there's injuries and stuff like that, but that's no excuse," Kessler said. "There's plays there I should have made, whether it's running the ball or making some throws, and those guys fought as hard as they could. ... It just comes down to me finding a way to win and helping those guys out and putting them in the best position."NOTES: The Jaguars placed rookie safety Ronnie Harrison (knee) on injured reserve. Harrison was thrust into the starting lineup after the team benched and later waived veteran Barry Church. Marcus Mariota has shown flashes of brilliance during his brief NFL career.He had a perfect passer rating in his NFL debut and led a 19-point comeback for his first playoff victory.Now Mariota heads into his fourth season with only his fifth-year option on his contract guaranteed.It's time for Mariota to consistently show what he can do, especially after the Titans hired a new coach in January to put the quarterback into an offense that better fits both his arm and legs."I don't focus on trying to prove anything," Mariota said Wednesday. "I've just got to go out there and do my job."Before the Titans make a long-term commitment with a much larger contract, Mariota starts a window Sunday in the season opener in Miami to show if he really is their franchise quarterback. Even though he has had to learn his third offense in four years, that hurdle may not help get him beyond the $20.9 million he is due in 2019.Mariota already has won 20 games, most by any quarterback in his first three years with the franchise since George Blanda won 28 in this team's first three seasons. He also has a chance to become the franchise's first quarterback to lead the team to the playoffs in back-to-back years since Steve McNair in 2002 and 2003.But Mariota is coming off a season where he had more interceptions (15) than touchdowns (13) for the first time in his career. He also has yet to play in all 16 games in a regular season.The Titans hired Mike Vrabel to replace Mike Mularkey in January  Womens Ben Jones Jersey , and Vrabel hired Matt LaFleur as his offensive coordinator and Pat O'Hara as quarterbacks coach. They worked with Mariota on widening his stance and tweaking his passing mechanics during the offseason to give him more balance when throwing, hoping that leads to improved accuracy."He's done a good job," O'Hara said. "He's picked up a lot of good traits, and he feels good about it and he believes in it. We're ready to go."Mariota is ready to go. He missed last year's trip to Miami, a 16-10 loss, with an injury."This is what you work hard for," Mariota said. "Everything that you've done this offseason, you have an opportunity to go out there and kind of show what you've done. I'm excited. I'm excited for this team and I look forward to the challenge."Dolphins coach Adam Gase has the challenge of preparing for Mariota in a new offense with the Titans tipping nothing in the preseason."It is difficult because there are a lot of options that can take place to where it could be just normal drop-back pass., it could be zone read, it could be play-action where if we're not really doing a good job with our rush lanes and something opens up, he takes off," Mariota said.Teammates insist Mariota has nothing to prove to them. This is the quarterback who threw a block for Derrick Henry in their comeback victory in Kansas City, a game where he also scored after catching his own pass."I think Marcus is always cool and collected Womens Delanie Walker Jersey ," three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker said. "He's going to go out there and play his game. Again, we're paid to make our quarterback look good. He's going to need our help for that. We just need everybody to make plays, and Marcus will be all right."Two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan said Mariota already has shown plenty."I think the confidence as never swayed anywhere other than we have full confidence in Marcus," Lewan said. "He's our quarterback. We're very lucky to have him."Vrabel takes a slightly different approach. The coach said every player and coach should be trying to prove his value every day."That's just the approach we have to take," Vrabel said. "Every day we're trying to prove our value to the team. If Marcus didn't come to work tomorrow, everybody would notice. You never want to be a guy that when you didn't show up for work or you were late, nobody really noticed."NOTES: S Kendrick Lewis (foot) was the only player not to practice Wednesday. Even RT Jack Conklin (left knee) was among four Titans limited at practice, including LB Derrick Morgan (knee), LB Rashaan Evans (hamstring) and LB Harold Landry (ankle).Follow Teresa M.

Making Money / 2019 Matt Gay Jersey
« on: May 07, 2019, 08:40:03 AM »
Favorite Buccaneers jersey of all-time. With the theme being “Jersey week” here at SB Nation 2019 Matt Gay Jersey , I figured I would pick my favorite Buccaneers jersey of all time. In other words, if I had to buy one jersey throughout the team’s history, this would be the one I’d get. Personally, I’m not a big fan of the current jerseys. I don’t know why, but they just don’t do it for me, I almost feel like there is just too much going on. On a side not Matt Gay Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey , the color rush jerseys are awesome, but the team only wore them on Thursday night games. This year, teams have the option to wear them when they want. If it was my choice, they would be the pick every Sunday. Anyway, back to my “must buy” jersey.I currently own four Buccaneer jerseys. The two “road” jerseys I own are Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David. The two “home” jerseys I own are Jameis Winston and Mike Evans. I know I stated before that I’m not a huge fan of the jerseys, but I do wear them all the time because I try and support the team the best I can. My favorite Buccaneers jersey of all time is the ones they sported during the Super Bowl in 2003. I think those are my favorites because of the memories not only that game brought http://www.buccaneerslockerroom.com/authentic-shaquil-barrett-jersey , but that season brought as well. Those jerseys were worn when the franchise was extremely successful and Raymond James Stadium was one of the most feared places in the NFL. It just brings back good memories and it’s something not only myself, but this entire fanbase needs. So, you know the jersey, but you don’t know the player. The player I would chose for the back of the jersey would be Ronde Barber. Barber was my favorite Buccaneer growing up and we all remember the impact he had during the Super Bowl run. That pick six is still playing over in many Buccaneers fans heads and we as a fan base, can only hope another one of those glorious moments are on the horizon.

The best rookie quarterback in the 2018 NFL season has clearly been Cleveland Browns #1 overall pick Baker Mayfield K. J. Wright Jersey , who’s helped lead the team to one of its best seasons literally this entire century, which unfortunately still won’t end their playoff drought.Mayfield has thrown for 24 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions, with his first start of the season coming in Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders. The single-season rookie record for passing touchdowns is joint held by Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson, but my personal tiebreaker is Wilson didn’t throw 28 interceptions in the process, so he should be 1A and Peyton listed at 1B. If Mayfield throws three touchdowns on Sunday against an elite Baltimore Ravens defense, the record belongs to him. A pair of TD tosses puts him alongside Peyton and Russ, but to Baker’s credit, he didn’t start all 16 games like those two.In fairness, Wilson’s record was going to be shattered last year based on how well Deshaun Watson was playing. At the time of his unfortunate ACL tear in November just days after his epic duel with Wilson at CenturyLink Field, he’d thrown 19 touchdowns with more than half the season to go. Now it’s Mayfield who has the chance to make some history on the final day of the regular season.If the Browns can beat the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, they would finish above .500 for the first time since 2007, and potentially give the Pittsburgh Steelers a last-minute helping hand to avoid an embarrassing collapse out of the playoffs. From Mayfield’s standpoint, it’ll be easier said than done to get more than one touchdown against Baltimore’s pass defense, as they’ve only allowed 18 all season, tied for third-fewest in the NFL. In their first meeting in Cleveland, Mayfield threw for 342 yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT in a 12-9 overtime win. Whether they win or lose D.K. Metcalf Jersey , whether Mayfield gets the record or doesn’t, there is genuine hope for Cleveland that we haven’t seen for quite some time. If Mayfield keeps this up, it won’t be long before “Is Baker Mayfield better than Russell Wilson?” becomes a new dumb talking point moving forward. This is a list of the things that are true about the 2017-2018 Seattle Seahawks, a team that just clinched another playoff berth:All-Pro strong safety Kam Chancellor was injured last season and has been unable to play since. The team signed him to a lucrative contract extension prior to that, which is taking up a significant amount of their cap space in 2018.The team fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and replaced him with Brian Schottenheimer. The first move was applauded by many, the second move was ridiculed by most.The team fired defensive coordinator Kris Richard and replaced him with Ken Norton, Jr. The first move was probably questioned by many and surprising to say the least, while the second move involved a coach who had been fired by the Oakland Raiders, of all teams.The team replaced Tom Cable with Mike Solari. Few didn’t like this.They traded Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett for almost no return and no savings against the 2018 cap. They released All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman. All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas broke his leg in Week 4.Between Kam, Bennett, Sherman, and Thomas, the Seahawks are spending almost $28 million on those four players with virtually no production other than four games from Thomas.They also lost defensive end Cliff Avril in Week 4 of last season and never really found a replacement for him.They waived their first pick in 2017, Malik McDowell, and they’ve still never seen him play for them.They didn’t have a second round pick in 2018. Instead, they drafted running back Rashaad Penny, who has been helpful but contributed very little as a rookie. Third round pick Rasheem Green has done even less. En total, their contributions from the first round of the draft since 2017 is a little bit of Penny D.K. Metcalf Seattle Seahawks Jersey , their return on the second round is some poor play by Ethan Pocic, and the third round is a little bit of production from Green, a lot of starts (but mostly inconsistent-to-uninspiring play) by Shaquill Griffin, inconsistencies from Nazair Jones, not much from Delano Hill, and virtually nothing from Amara Darboh.Basically, if you took away the first, second, and third round by Seattle over the last two years, you wouldn’t change the team by much. In fact, fourth round tight end Will Dissly looked like a steal who could offset that issue but he tore his Achilles.The team also let Paul Richardson (second on the team in yards for 2017) and Jimmy Graham (third in yards, first in touchdowns) leave via free agency. Some fans lamented the lack of compensatory picks and their production could not or at least was not replaced.The team lost Sheldon Richardson in free agency with Richardson saying that their offer was a joke. Instead, they used some cap space to sign Tom Johnson and Shemar Stephen in his place, then released Johnson after Week 1. Some fans ridiculed their handling of the Richardson and/or Johnson situations, and the team has been transparent in their admission of mistakes made. Less loud are the voices of praise that the front office found Jarran Reed in the second round in 2016.As the season approached, it became apparent that number one receiver Doug Baldwin was seriously hurt and that he might not be at 100-percent at any point in the year. Baldwin had one target and zero catches in Week 1, then missed Weeks 2 and 3, before returning in Week 4. In Week 5 Youth D.K. Metcalf Jersey , he had one yard on one target. He also missed Week 14.K.J. Wright was seriously hurt just before the season and has missed all but four games. His cap hit this year was $8 million. The team found a gem replacement in Mychal Kendricks. After three games he was suspended for eight games. When he returned, he broke his leg.Starting running back Chris Carson missed two games with injury.Backup running back Rashaad Penny broke his finger in the preseason and has also missed the last two games.Free agent signee, planned starting tight end Ed Dickson opened the year in NFI, missing six games.Starting cornerback Tre Flowers missed Week 2, further weakening a secondary that had lost Sherman, Jeremy Lane, and offseason signees like Dontae Johnson and Byron Maxwell.Offseason signee D.J. Fluker has missed five games.Germain Ifedi missed Week 16.Dion Jordan was expected to pick up some pass rush production and has done almost nothing.J.D. McKissic opened the year on injured reserve, unexpectedly. C.J. Prosise still couldn’t stay healthy or do anything productive.Jordan Simmons steps in as a solid replacement for Fluker, then goes right onto IR after his second start.Bobby Wagner missed Week 2.The Seahawks schedule has ended up including games against the 9-6 Cowboys, 11-4 Bears, 12-3 Rams (twice), 11-4 Chargers, 11-4 Chiefs, and 8-6-1 Vikings. All playoff teams, if Minnesota wins next week or the Eagles lose. It’s a significant amount of difficult games. The team was 0-2 after two games, 2-3 after five, and 4-5 after nine.They are also ... going to the playoffs. Again.
