ith offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian Stitched Giorgio Tavecchio Jersey , who couldn’t fill the massive shoes left by former OC Kyle Shanahan. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news on Monday, sharing that the Falcons will also move on from defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel and special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong. “All three of these men are excellent coaches that I have a lot of respect for,” Dan Quinn said Monday via the team’s media relations department. “While these are difficult decisions, we know we have a group of players here we are excited about and in order for us to consistently play true to our identity in all three phases we thought we needed some changes.”On Sark specifically, Quinn said that the team simply needs new direction. “Sark has shown he’s a good coach and play caller,” Quinn said. “After evaluating the entire season, I decided it was necessary that we had a new voice and direction for our offensive unit. I have a ton of respect for Sark, both personally and professionally, and I appreciate all he’s done during his time here.”Sarkisian was hired from the University of Alabama to fill Atlanta’s vacant OC job on February 7, 2017, following Shanahan’s departure to become the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.Despite being left with many of the same weapons which put up historic numbers in 2016, Sarkisian oversaw an offensive regression from second in yardage (6,653 total yards) and first in scoring (33.8 ppg) to eighth in yardage (5837) and 15th in scoring (22.1 ppg) in his first year as the team’s OC.Matt Ryan followed up an MVP season of 4 Youth Giorgio Tavecchio Jersey ,944 passing yards and a TD/INT ratio of 38/7 in 2016 with a rather pedestrian year of 4,095 passing yards and a TD/INT ratio of 20/12 in 2017, going from Shanahan to Sarkisian as his OC.The fanbase soured on Sark with some very questionable playcalls over the course of the year, such as a jet sweep out of an empty backfield with Taylor Gabriel on 4th and goal against the New England Patriots in Week 7, and a shovel pass to third-string RB Terron Ward on 2nd and goal on the final drive of the game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, to name a few.There was improvement in the 2018 season, as the Falcons remained in the top 10 in total offense and climbed closer to top 10 in scoring offense — upping their points to over 25 per game.Ryan reclaimed his MVP-like form, but the wins became fewer and farther between, and the offense went into a scoring draught where they put up just 20 points or fewer in every game of the team’s season-crippling five-game losing streak between weeks 10 and 14.With Sarkisian being relieved of his post, the Falcons will once again be on the hunt for a new offensive coordinator — their fifth in the Matt Ryan era.Darrell Bevell is a name which has already been linked to the team as a potential Sarkisian successor. Gary Kubiak is probably the most popular choice among the fans (and the writers here at The Falcoholic) to be the next OC.Our own Cory Woodroof compiled a list of potential successors who won’t require an overhaul of the team’s scheme.Atlanta’s vacant OC position will likely be one of the most sought-after assistant coaching positions in the NFL, because of the quarterback and the weapons which are already in place.We wish Steve Sarkisian the best of luck moving forward. It would be great to see him land on his feet somewhere because after all, he’s still a man who has a family to feed. EDTShareTweetShareShareFalcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Thursday, Mar. 21Jason Getz-USA TODAY SportsThe rapid-fire portion of free agency has passed and the 2019 NFL Draft is a bit over a month away. Blink your eyes and it’ll be rookie minicamp time. Folks Stitched Austin Hooper Jersey , we’re slowly emerging from the offseason doldrums, so read on for Falcons news and story lines in Thursday’s edition of Falcoholinks.Bruce is LooseThe Falcons brought in veteran defender Bruce Irvin midway through the 2018 season to add some oomph to an anemic pass-rush, and while he didn’t light the world on fire he proved a useful rotational piece along the line. For a team aching for any semblance of production on its defensive front, Irvin’s services were definitely appreciated. For that reason, it seemed likely that the team would elect to bring him back for the upcoming year. That was not to be, as Irvin was signed to a one-year contract with the rival Carolina Panthers. In fact, Atlanta reportedly did not attempt to retain him.The Falcons’ young pass-rushers could greatly benefit from a veteran presence on the defensive line, and with the Dolphins looking to deal Robert Quinn, one has to wonder if Atlanta is in the mix. Familiar face Adrian Clayborn is also a distinct possibility.MOOOOOOOCKIf you’re up to your eyeballs in mock drafts already, you know that Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver has been penciled in as Atlanta’s pick a billion times. It’s almost become an exercise in repetitive prediction — “Oh, another mock. Let’s see if it’s ... yep Ed Oliver.” Well not this one!A new face appears in SB Nation’s latest mock draft, so indulge your curiosities with a bit of a change of pace right here. Of course, the team has already met with one of this guy’s defensive counterparts a couple of times. Destination: Atlanta The Falcons may have spent the bulk of their available free agency cash Youth Austin Hooper Jersey , but that hasn’t stopped some NFL agents from weighing in on the most popular destinations for their clients. Dallas tops the list, with Atlanta following closely behind. Atlanta has an established music scene, a handful of colleges and universities, and more Waffle Houses per capita than any other city represented by an NFL team. Checks out.Breaking Down a New Acquisition James Carpenter became one of the newest Atlanta Falcons last week, brought in to add some heft to an offensive line that under-performed in 2018. At 6’5”, 321, Carpenter is a different build at guard than we’re used to under the Quinn regime. For that reason, The Falcoholic’s Allen Strk took a deep dive into what Carpenter’s signing means for Atlanta’s offensive front. This is must-read stuff, so be sure to get up to speed on the Falcons’ new face.
ther many times on the practice field over the years Stitched Tyus Bowser Jersey , but Saturday will mark the first time they do it in a regular season game.Weddle left the Chargers for the Ravens in 2016 and he’ll be at safety as the Ravens try to stop the Chargers quarterback from continuing his impressive season. Rivers said that Weddle and the Ravens present “a heck of a challenge” and discussed the possibility that Weddle will be able to pick up on any tells he gleaned over the years.“I’ll find out” Rivers said, via NBC San Diego. “We’ll find out early on. We’ll find out early on how much of that will go on. I mean, that would go on about every day, multiple times a day on the practice field, you know? Of course, you could hear a little bit then Youth Tyus Bowser Jersey , it’s just us on the practice field. I think, again, I don’t want to make too much of it. I don’t imagine he’s going to overanalyze everything he hears. He knows that I know that he knows, you know what I mean? And vice versa.”The Chargers have already booked a playoff spot while the Ravens’ chances of doing the same will have a lot to do with whether they’re able to hold Rivers in check this weekend. After the Ravens’ heartbreaking 12-9 overtime loss to the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium, most of the criticism has focused on Marty Mornhinweg’s pass-heavy approach. Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson combined to attempt 57 passes compared to just 25 rushing attempts. Despite the criticism, head coach John Harbaugh does not believe that was much of an issue.“No Stitched Marlon Humphrey Jersey , I don’t. We ran it  times. That’s a lot of times to run it in this league. I mean if you look at numbers around the league, that’s a lot. I don’t feel that way,” Harbaugh stated during his Monday afternoon press conference. “You got to do whatever you can do to move the ball and score points. You know, we have been doing a pretty good job of that up until this last game. We just need to put more points on the board.”The entire NFL has shifted in the direction of having a pass-happy offense, and in fact, Baltimore ranks seventh in total rushing attempts. Many teams are shying away from running the ball Youth Marlon Humphrey Jersey , but Harbaugh believes the more significant issue is the lack of efficiency. “This run-pass balance thing, I don’t understand why it is a topic,” Harbaugh said. “We want to run the ball well. We are working as hard as we can to do it. If the question is are you working hard at the run game, yeah we’re working real hard at it. We want to be a really good running team.”Another trend that several teams around the NFL are utilizing is a running back by committee approach. Unlike in previous seasons where teams would have one workhorse running back, they are using multiple running backs throughout the game in different situations. According to the playtime percentages, Alex Collins only received 27 snaps compared to Javorius Allen’s 50. While Collins is still perceived to be the lead back as he led the team in carries with 12 Stitched Jaleel Scott Jersey , Allen received the lion’s share of snaps.When asked about the snap distribution, Harbaugh suggested it was merely the flow of the game.“That’s the way the game went. I’d like to get De’Lance [Turner] out there a little more. So you want to play your guys. A fresh running back is a good thing. I think running backs taking 40 or 50 snaps is not necessarily a great thing. You talk about balance, put the ball in one guy’s hand for 35 plays I don’t know if that’s balance. You need to spread the load,” Harbaugh said. De’Lance Turner was an undrafted free agent running back out of Alcorn State, who was promoted to the 53-man roster after Kenneth Dixon suffered a knee injury in Baltimore’s Week 1 win over the Bills. In the preseason, Turner showed big-play ability as he recorded a 65-yard touchdown against the Dolphins in the Week 3. Whether or not he receives more carries remains to be seen Youth Jaleel Scott Jersey , but Baltimore’s offense has bigger fish to fry. As Harbaugh mentioned during his press conference, the more concerning trend should be Baltimore’s red zone woes. They have scored one touchdown in their last eight trips to the red zone — including a drive consisting of two kneel downs against the Steelers in Week 4 to end the game. The Ravens will have a tough task in Week 6 as they will face a Titans defense that is allowing the fourth-fewest points per game in the first five weeks. Tennessee is also stout in the red zone as they have only allowed three touchdowns on 13 opportunities.

So, here’s how you can watch everything you want from the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine Marcus Sherels Jersey , whether you’re watching it on TV or online.Day 1 - 1 March 2019 (Friday) - Offensive linemen, running backs, kickers, special teamsThis is probably going to be the day that most Vikings fans will want to keep an eye on, as the “big uglies” will take center stage at Lucas Oil Stadium. This is a position of absolute screaming need for the Vikings, so this is as good a time as any to see if you can find any favorites among the players that will be a part of this year’s draft.The coverage on Day 1 will be on the NFL Network and streaming live on NFL.com. The festivities will get underway at 8:00 AM Central.Day 2 - 2 March 2019 (Saturday) - Quarterbacks, wide receivers, tight endsSaturday is the day for the skill position players, thereby making it the “sexiest” day of the Combine for the average fan. While the Vikings might be looking for some mid-round gems at the wide receiver spots, it certainly isn’t the high-priority need that the offensive line is.Given the positions that will be taking the field that day Xavier Rhodes Jersey , it’s no surprise that the Combine will make its debut on network television on Saturday. The broadcast will start at 9:00 AM Central, and in addition to being on the NFL Network and streaming on NFL.com, it will also be simulcast on ABC from noon to 2:00 PM Central. Just those two hours, though. . .for the rest, you’ll have to go to the usual spots.Day 3 - 3 March 2019 (Sunday) - Defensive linemen, linebackersHow much of a need the Vikings have at these positions depends on who you ask. Given that Anthony Barr and/or Sheldon Richardson could be ex-Vikings in the next couple of weeks, this is probably a group that Vikings fans need to keep an eye on.Coverage on Day 3. . .which is Sunday. . .will get underway at 8:00 AM Central. Again, coverage will be taking place on both NFL.com and the NFL Network.Day 4 - 4 March 2019 - Defensive backsI’m going to assume that this is Mike Zimmer’s favorite day of the Combine, because that guy loves himself some defensive backs. The Vikings would appear to be pretty solid at this position, but they could still use some mid or late-round picks on corners and safeties.The television coverage for the final day of this year’s Combine will get underway at 8:00 AM Central on both the NFL Network and NFL.com. There you have it Mike Remmers Jersey , ladies and gentlemen. . .how you can watch every single minute of the Scouting Combine, or even just as much as your heart desires. Arif and James are back to talk all about the draft picks, the strategy, and plans moving forward for the team!

g.For the first time since taking quarterback Jared Goff first overall in 2016 Aaron Donald Jersey , they’re back in the first round. Unless they aren’t.Via Gary Klein of the , Rams coach Sean McVay played it coy when asked if they might trade out of the 31st overall spot this year.“You never know,” McVay said.It might be because he just doesn’t know what to do with one. He arrived the year after the deal to move up to take Jared Goff C.J. Anderson Jersey , which cost them their 2017 first-rounder. Last year, they sent the first to the Patriots in the wide receiver Brandin Cooks deal. This year’s second went to the Chiefs for cornerback Marcus Peters.“Ever since we had that No. 1 overall pick, we’ve been kind of in this type of preparation Samson Ebukam Jersey ,” General Manager Les Snead said. “So it feels the same.”They’ve drafted well in the middle rounds to fill in some blanks, and will have to continue to with a top-heavy roster, which may lead them to consider moving out of the first round. As if Los Angeles Rams DT Aaron Donald hasn’t already accomplished everything possible Cooper Kupp Jersey , here’s another accolade to add to the legendary season the five-time pro bowler is putting together:Aaron Donald put together a downright dominant performance in week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals in their home. He dominated to the tune of seven combined tackles, three sacks, and four tackles-for-loss.Donald is now up to 19.5 sacks on the season John Johnson Jersey , breaking both the all-time DT sack record and the single-season Rams sack record in week 16. Donald is now only 3.5 sacks away from breaking the all-time sack record which DE Michael Strahan set with his 22.5-sack season.The Rams have now received eight of the player of the week awards, pulling awards on all three phases of the game. This is Donald’s second Defensive Player of the Week award as he also won the award in week seven.Onto bigger and better things for #99.
KANSAS CITY Mitchell Schwartz Jersey , Mo. — he Kansas City Chiefs late in the first half Saturday, driving deep downfield with an opportunity to bite into their deficit.Andrew Luck scrambled out of bounds with a few seconds left, and Colts coach Frank Reich sent one of the most reliable kickers in NFL history out to attempt a 23-yard chip-shot field goal.Adam Vinatieri doinked it off the left upright.Instead of taking some momentum into the locker room on a cold, snowy afternoon, the Colts trudged there facing a 24-7 deficit. They wouldn’t score on offense until Luck connected with T.Y. Hilton with 5:31 left in the game, and by that point the Chiefs were skating toward a victory.They wound up winning 31-13 to reach their first AFC title game since January 1994.“It was tough conditions out there I think for kicking,” Colts coach Frank Reich said. “I don’t know the specifics, but it was just one of those days. It was all three phases. It seemed like that was indicative of we were going to make a mistake like that in all three phases.”Meanwhile, the Chiefs ended years of postseason disappointments against Indianapolis, including two playoff losses at home. There was the game Lin Elliott missed three field goals, the infamous no-punt game, and the night five years ago that Luck rallied Indianapolis from a 38-10 second-half hole.He wasn’t able to engineer another comeback this time.Vinatieri, meanwhile, was a microcosm of a day in which little went right. Even when the Colts finally made the end zone, the veteran of 27 previous playoff games proceeded to miss the extra point.“That’s a momentum swing. Needing those points going into half, I didn’t come through for us,” he said. “The second one was just De’Anthony Thomas Jersey , I don’t know. I’ll go back and look at that one.”Luck, whose offensive line had kept him remarkably clean during a five-game win streak, spent the entire game with linebackers Dee Ford and Justin Houston in his face. He was sacked three times, hit twice that many, and had what seemed like a dozen passes batted at the line of scrimmage.He finished 19 of 36 for 203 yards and a score, and left with his No. 12 jersey caked in mud.Marlon Mack fared no better on the ground as the Colts were forced to play from behind from the opening minutes. After running for a franchise playoff-record 148 yards last week against Houston, he was held to 46 yards rushing by the league’s worst run defense, and ultimately left with a hip injury with the game decided late in the fourth quarter.100 Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta“All of us had a fair amount of confidence coming into the game that we could do something,” Luck said. “and we didn’t. And we know this game punishes you quickly. We know how hard it is for everybody to be on the same page every play. And we weren’t, and it shows up in the final score.”The Colts’ defense, so pivotal in their rebound from a 1-5 start, had no answers for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ vast array of offensive options. They allowed Kansas City to score on its first three possessions, and at one point the Colts were being outgained 185-12.The Chiefs’ Damien Williams, who at one point was the No. 3 running back in Kansas City, gouged a Colts defense that had not allowed a 100-yard rusher this season for 129 yards and a score.Tight end Travis Kelce, who feasts on cover-two defenses, made Indianapolis pay for its gaps downfield. He caught seven passes for a game-high 108 yards Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Jersey , several of them to convert first downs.Wide receiver Tyreek Hill, one of the fastest players in the NFL, kept running away from would-be tacklers. Hill caught eight passes for 72 yards, took a 36-yard sweep for a touchdown, and set the tone with his energetic pregame warmup and circus-style introduction.Even when the Colts defense did make a play, such as Darius Leonard‘s strip and recover of Sammy Watkins‘ fumble deep in Kansas City territory, their offense failed to capitalize. Luck fumbled the ball right back to foil an opportunity to close within 24-14 late in the third quarter.They wound up never getting that close the rest of the way.“We keep using this illustration of climbing the mountain, Mount Everest,” Reich said. “What we said in there was it’s hard to climb Mount Everest your first time that you go to climb it. We didn’t make it all the way to the top this year, but we made it up that mountain pretty far.” KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs lost backup quarterback Chad Henne to a broken ankle that will require surgery, and they quickly signed veteran Matt Moore on Monday to provide depth behind starter Patrick Mahomes.The Chiefs have two other quarterbacks on their roster in Chase Litton and Kyle Shurmur, but neither of the developmental prospects has distinguished himself during the preseason.“Unfortunately, injuries happen, but one thing I do know is that our medical staff, our head coach and our personnel staff are going to make the best decisions for us moving forward,” Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said. “You never want to see anyone get hurt in this industry Ron Parker Jersey , but one thing we understand is that we have two young guys. We have to get them up and coming.”That was before the Chiefs added an older guy to the mix.Moore, 35, sat out last season after starting a pair of games for Miami in 2017, the end of a seven-year tenure with the Dolphins that began as the starter and ended as their backup. Moore also spent three seasons with Carolina. He is 15-15 in 30 starts.He never had, however, the kind of options at his disposal that he would have in Kansas City.Mahomes is coming off a record-setting debut as starter, along with a league MVP award, thanks in part to wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins and tight end Travis Kelce. The Chiefs also have a speedster in rookie Mecole Hardman and an up-and-coming star in running back Damien Williams.“It’s definitely going to be different with Chad, just because he was that veteran guy that was out there on the field,” Mahomes said. “We have a lot of trust in these young guys to come in and step in and make plays. They’ve done a good job of picking up stuff, so we’re going to keep bringing them along and letting them learn. I mean, Chad will still be there in the room helping out.”Henne will have surgery Tuesday in Green Bay, Wisconsin, which, coincidentally, is where the Chiefs play their preseason finale Thursday night. Dr. Robert Anderson is scheduled to operate.Bieniemy acknowledged the injury changes the way the Chiefs were planning to approach the game.Mahomes is still expected to sit along with the rest of the starters ahead of their regular-season opener Sept. 8 in Jacksonville. But now it will be Shurmur and Litton getting the majority of the snaps, particularly since Moore will be working feverishly to get up to speed.“I will say this: These guys have done one heck of a job since they’ve been here Allen Bailey Jersey ,” Bieniemy said. “They’ve made the most of every opportunity. You’ve seen some good and you’ve seen some bad, but one thing I will say about both of those guys, those two kids are very, very competitive.”Shurmur, whose father is New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur, signed with Kansas City in April as an undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt. He threw for 3,130 yards with 24 touchdowns and just six interceptions his senior season and has done a nice job of carrying that production into the NFL.He was 9 of 12 for 67 yards in his time against San Francisco on Saturday night.Litton, who signed as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall, is more experienced after spending last season on the Chiefs’ practice squad. But he looked lost against the 49ers in the Chiefs’ third preseason game, completing just one pass for 5 yards in mop-up duty.“Both of these kids have been pretty consistent,” Bieniemy said. “One thing these kids do, they come out and are very stoic in their behavior. They want to make sure that they get the call right. They want to make sure that they are seeing it the right way. But also, too, they want feedback on the sidelines. These guys are good kids. They’re competitive.”NOTES: Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said WR Marcus Kemp will have surgery Tuesday in Dallas for the torn ACL and MCL he sustained against Pittsburgh. Kemp also had a meniscus injury. … DE Breeland Speaks will have surgery Tuesday in Houston after spraining the MCL and damaging the meniscus in his right knee against the Steelers, Burkholder said.49 Gallery:Greetings from St. Joe: Chiefs training camp 2019Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports | Denny Medley
against the Cowboys On Sunday Stitched D.J. Swearinger Jersey , the Arizona Cardinals played their third preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys winning 27-3 and forcing eight turnovers. Here is a breakdown of Patrick Peterson’s interception and the Cardinal’s sole pick six in the preseason.The Cowboys come out in a singleback ace u off formation. Tavon Austin (#10) the receiver lined up at the top of the screen is inside the numbers, a slight variation on the typical ace formation.Dallas runs a stick concept on this second-and-9. This play has the two tight ends, lined up with the offensive line, run curl routes in the middle of the field, while the two wide receivers run quick out routes.The main goal of the Cowboys here is to get some quick yards for a more manageable third down.The Cardinals are in their base 4-3 defense running a cover 4 quarters. In cover 4 quarters, the two safeties and two cornerbacks are playing deep vertical zones. The corners also play with outside leverage. You can see both cornerbacks are lined up further outside than their respective receivers before the snap. This is essentially done to bracket the X receiver and pass him off to the safety or linebackers if he were to move inside. The middle linebacker covers the middle of the field with help from the other linebackers who work together to pass off any crossing routes. The outside linebackers are responsible for creating contact and rerouting the tight ends in order to give their safeties a head start if the tight ends were to run vertical routes up the seams. After creating contact with the tight ends, the outside linebackers drift backwards, towards the sideline. Here’s an image illustrating cover 4 courtesy of Code and Football. https://codeandfootball.wordpress.com/20...n-images/Dallas Cowboys quarterback Cooper Rush’s first read is to his tight end Geoff Swaim (#87) running a curl route on the right side of the field. During his drop, he sees Budda Baker all over Swaim who is not ready for the ball. This forces Rush to go to his second read, Austin.As soon as Rush winds up his arm for the release, Peterson plants his back foot and lunges forward, anticipating the ball coming to Austin. Rush essentially made the right call in this situation. If he had gone to the other side of the field, receiver Deonte Thompson (#15) is open on his out route. Cardinal cornerback Jamar Taylor (#28) is in more off coverage which is the standard on a cover 4 play. Following the snap, you can see how much further Taylor backpedals than Peterson, indicating his conservatism and allowing underneath routes Youth D.J. Swearinger Jersey , again, typical for cover 4 coverage. Peterson however, in his aggressive mindset has his eyes locked on Rush and jumps at his chance to make the play, resulting in the pick six. This interception put Arizona up 14-0 and was one of three total interceptions for the Cardinals defense. Under new defensive coordinator Al Holcomb and new head coach Steve Wilks, the Cardinals are moving from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 and our glimpse into preseason has allowed us to see how the team is adjusting.With the 4-3 comes a lot more zone coverage and unique blitz packages. The Cardinals defense put on a show forcing eight turnovers and created optimism in what to expect during the regular season.Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Bidwill among those at John McCain’s Capitol viewing While I understand this is a fan page for the Cardinals, I feel that it is necessary to pay our respects to Arizona Senator John McCain, who lost his battle with brain cancer on August 25, 2018. I have lived in Arizona my entire life, and in the days following Senator McCain’s death, I have come to realize that he has been my senator since the day I was born. He has also been an Arizona Senator for the entire time the Cardinals have called Arizona home. It is a little strange to think these last few days have been our first without Senator McCain serving our state. It is common knowledge that Senator McCain was a POW during the Vietnam war. In October of 1967, while serving as a Navy aviator, he was captured by the North Vietnamese after his plane was shot down over Hanoi. It was reported that McCain had several broken bones and was held in solitary confinement for over a year. He was also subject to other forms of torture, which had the end goal of extracting information. McCain proved to be tough to break. When asked to give up the names of the men in his squadron, McCain instead listed Green Bay Packers offensive line.In total Stitched Marcus Gilbert Jersey , McCain ended up spending five and a half years as a prisoner. He could have been released nearly four years earlier, but he refused to leave until all those captured before him were also released. This is something that McCain’s friend, Larry Fitzgerald, believes is true heroism. Fitzgerald, who spends his off-seasons travelling the globe, has visited Truc Bach Lake where McCain’s plane was shot down. While visiting Vietnam, Fitz toured the lake, the prison cell, and learned of the conditions and torture that McCain endured. McCain and Fitzgerald’s friendship grew after this experience. Fitz has toured the Senate in Washington DC, with McCain, and has been a guest panelist at McCain’s global summit in Sedona, AZ. The friendship went both ways, as it wasn’t just Fitz stepping into McCain’s world. The senator had become a mainstay at Cardinals practices and games over the years. Senator McCain’s passing has caused a wave of grief within the Cardinals organization, with Cardinals President, Michael Bidwell saying Youth Marcus Gilbert Jersey , “We are heart-broken by his passing but know that the character, courage and conviction that he demonstrated throughout his life will endure forever.”Larry Fitzgerald also offered his condolences via Twitter, “Rest in peace to an American hero, statesman, servant of the people, and dear friend. Godspeed Senator McCain. My prayers for Cindy and the beautiful McCain family.”Fitzgerald joined former Vice President Joe Biden, and other dignitaries speaking at Senator McCain’s Phoenix memorial service. McCain left his mark across other Arizona sports teams as well, as former Coyotes captain Shane Doan and former Diamondbacks outfielder Luis Gonzalez served as pallbearers at the service.I would like to thank Senator McCain for his service to our state, and to our nation. He has served with dignity, and has earned the respect of his peers on both sides of the aisle. Even if you didn’t always agree with McCain’s political dialogue, it would be difficult to question his courage or patriotism. My heart goes out to the McCain family in this very difficult time.
passed at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday and there were no last minute additions to the list that filled out over the last week.That means that six players are heading into the new league year with a tag attached to their name. They are Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence Devonta Freeman Jersey 2019 , Texans defensive end/linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark, Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford and 49ers kicker Robbie Gould.Lawrence Black Matt Ryan Jersey , Clowney, Jarrett, Clark and Ford are five of the top six players on PFT’s list of the top 2019 free agents. The only exception at the top of the list is Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers, who appears to be well positioned to strike it rich next week despite having shoulder surgery after the Super Bowl.Gould was No. 80 on that list. Another Patriot Matt Ryan Jersey 2019 , Stephen Gostkowski, is the only other kicker on the list.Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, Giants safety Landon Collins, Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley Black Vic Beasley Jr Jersey , Seahawks safety Earl Thomas and Eagles quarterback Nick Foles are the next names on our list of the top free agents. We’ll likely be hearing a lot about them once the market officially opens and the money starts flying around the league. Over 200 people that served as temporary workers for events surrounding the Super Bowl in Atlanta say they haven’t been paid for the work they provided.According to 11 Alive, the workers were employed by B.E. Staffing Services, which closed its doors in the days immediately following the game. The workers say they have not been paid for the work they put in and are seeking accountability from the company, the city of Atlanta and the NFL.“We are standing in front of Mercedes-Benz Stadium asking for relief … it’s very clear they never intended to pay these folks Vic Beasley Jr Jersey 2019 ,” former city councilman Derrick Boazman said. “Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms was the face of the Super Bowl. She needs to come see about her citizens.”Workers said Tuesday they had committed over 100 hours in time to working events surrounding the game only to have B.E. Staffing close and leave them high and dry after the game was over.NFL V.P of Communications Brian McCarthy told the station they had been assured by the company that the workers would be paid.“We have been in contact with that company which has assured us that staffers will be fully compensated,” McCarthy said.

The offseason is officially here.According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Broncos and Ravens have a deal in place to send veteran quarterback Joe Flacco from Baltimore to Denver. The trade will become official on March 13 Stitched Robert Griffin Jersey , the first day of the 2019 league year.The Ravens were expected to trade Flacco this offseason, but the Broncos weren’t widely viewed as a potential destination. However, it was Flacco who launched a desperation rainbow to Jacoby Jones at Mile High Stadium in the 2012 playoffs Youth Robert Griffin Jersey , forcing what would become double overtime and ultimately beating the Broncos en route to a Super Bowl XLVII championship, with Flacco winning the MVP award.Then there’s the fact that new Broncos coach Vic Fangio worked for the Ravens from 2006 through 2008, overlapping with Flacco by two years.Flacco is due to receive a base salary of $18.5 million in 2019. Trading him triggers $16 million in dead money for the Ravens Stitched Jordan Lasley Jersey , but creates a net cap savings for 2019 of $9.5 million.
CHARLOTTE Youth Sam Mills Jersey , N.C. (AP)ttention to the secondary on the second day of the NFL draft – and added an extra draft pick along the way.The Panthers selected cornerback Donte Jackson from LSU in the second round and safety Rashaan Gaulden from Tennessee in the third round Friday night, one day after taking wide receiver D.J. Moore from Maryland with the 24th overall pick in round one.”That is an area we wanted to upgrade,” Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said of the defensive backfield.Carolina, coming off an 11-5 season, also wanted to get faster on defense – and it did.The 5-foot-11, 178-pound Jackson possesses high-end speed, clocked at 4.31 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combines. That tied him for the fastest 40-time among rookie cornerbacks.”With Jackson, that is adding about as much speed as you can,” Hurney said.Coach Ron Rivera said the addition of Jackson and Gaulden gives them some swagger back in the secondary that they had been missing after the departure of All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman. Carolina’s starting cornerbacks didn’t have any interceptions through the first 14 games last season.He feels like Jackson and Gaulden both have a big chip on their shoulder.”My expectation is to be a starter from day one Stitched Sam Mills Jersey ,” Jackson said. ”I am going to be more than ready and I anticipate being a starter.”Jackson could have a chance to start opposite James Bradberry as a rookie.The Panthers traded last year’s starter Daryl Worley to the Philadelphia, although the Eagles later waived him following an off-the-field incident. Carolina added Ross Cockrell in free agency and Kevon Seymour made some plays at cornerback last season.Jackson played in all 12 games last season for the Tigers and was a second-team all-SEC selection in 2017. He started 12 of 13 games and had 49 tackles, an interception and 10 pass breakups.Jackson said not being selected in the first round – he was taken with the 55th selection overall – has left him with a chip on his shoulder ”the size of this hotel that I am staying in right now.””Seeing all of those guys picked before me when I was thought to be a first-round draft pick, that chip grew with every pick that I didn’t see my name called,” said Jackson, who was a member of LSU’s SEC Championship 4×100-relay track team last year.Hurney said Jackson has outstanding ball skills, and the reason he likely fell to No. 55 overall was because of his lack of size.Rivera said while Bradberry will cover the opposition’s bigger receivers, Jackson can handle the smaller, faster ones.”We feel like he can play outside corner and nickel Youth Greg Olsen Jersey ,” Hurney said.The Panthers view the 6-foot-3, 193 Gaulden as a safety, although he has played some cornerback and nickel back for the Vols.Rivera likes that Gaulden has good speed for his size and feels he can cover tight ends.”I can play anything in the defensive backfield,” Gaulden said. ”It’s just the confidence that I have had and through the coaches who trained me to be able to play any position in the back end. But I can play safety at a very high level and that is what the Panthers see me as.”Gaulden had only one interception during three seasons for the Vols, but had three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries last season.”I try to get to the ball however I can,” Gaulden said.Carolina traded its other third-round pick, No. 88 overall, to Green Bay in exchange for the Packers‘ fourth- and fifth-round picks. The Panthers now have six picks on Saturday, including the first pick of the day Blue Devin Funchess Jersey , the 101st overall.Hurney said that having the first pick in the third day of the draft is a ”valuable spot.”— The Panthers have traded the No. 187 overall pick to Denver."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Keep Sounding PodcastPanthers 2019 NFL DraftCSR Film RoomPanthers 2019 NFL DraftCarolina Panthers trade the No. 187 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Denver BroncosNew,22commentsThe Panthers have traded the No. 187 overall pick to Denver.EDTShareTweetShareShareCarolina Panthers trade the No. 187 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Denver BroncosJeremy Brevard-USA TODAY SportsThe Carolina Panthers have traded the No. 187 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Denver Broncos in exchange for the Nos. 212 and 237 picks. Pick No. 212 is in the sixth round, while Pick No. 237 is in the seventh (and final) round of the draft.This trade gives the Panthers an extra pick they didn’t have to start the day. Prior to this trade, the No. 187 pick would have been Carolina’s last pick of the draft. Now they have an extra lottery ticket in case they see another player they’d like to make a ‘priority UDFA’ instead of risking the chance that said undrafted player chooses another team.We don’t know who Hurney has in mind for either of these picks, but trading down to acquire more players is probably a decent strategy. Stay tuned as we’ll provide all the details on the final two picks whenever they are announced.

The Cardinals got him at 248.The top interior offensive linemen value was also for the Arizona Cardinals Stitched Markus Golden Jersey , this one was Lamont Gaillard, the center/guard prospect out of Georgia.While their actual value is up for debate, to Jeremiah Youth Markus Golden Jersey , the Arizona Cardinals got some steals along the offensive line.
n cornerback Cheap Julio Jones Jersey , and he’ll have the chance to live up to his billing now."The Falcons didn’t draft Isaiah Oliver in the second round to have him sit. Then again, they didn’t draft Jalen Collins to sit, either, and due to a combination of being outplayed by Robert Alford and his well-publicized suspension. There are no guarantees, even for a tall, rangy, physical second round selection who seems to fit the Dan Quinn mold.Of course, life is a little easier if your primary competition is out of the way, and the Falcons just decided to put their trust in Oliver and add cap space when they cut ties with Alford. He’s fresh off a poor 2018, but he had a pretty good career in Atlanta and, following a typically classy goodbye message Custom Julio Jones Jersey , shouldn’t lack for suitors on the open market. That leaves Oliver as the obvious candidate to start opposite Desmond Trufant, with Damontae Kazee, Brian Poole, and a potential draft pick competing for the slot cornerback role. With Kazee potentially moving over, new additions on deck, and Oliver stepping into a bigger role, there’s some uncertainty here. But much of that is yet to come. Oliver is the only one with a clear, certain path to playing time going forward, and he’ll have to be pretty good immediately for this defense to function at the height of its powers in 2019. I am a big-time Oliver fan and questioned why the Falcons didn’t give him more playing time in 2018, especially now that Alford is gone, and I think despite his lack of experience he’ll fare just fine. In 14 games with two starts Julio Jones Jersey Discount , Oliver was burnt several times but also pitched in an interception, seven pass deflections, and stretches of genuinely quality coverage. He doesn’t lack for athleticism or size, and he won’t even turn 23 until the end of September. The reasons the Falcons were interested in him are no secret—he has the potential to be one of the better #2 cornerbacks in football if it all comes together—but obviously expecting him to be better than the 2017 version of Robert Alford is still going to be a lot for the second year man, even if he should have little trouble being better than 2018 Alford, and he will likely be less boom-or-bust no matter what he does. In summary, Oliver is going to start, and Oliver has the chance to be special. If he can get there as soon as this season, Dan Quinn’s defense might just be going places.

Now he’s expressing his desire for a trade in June." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteThe Falcoholican Atlanta Falcons communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsLibraryFalconsOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Library FalcFans Podcast on The FalcoholicContact The FalcoholicFalcons StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Falcons NewsYahoo Falcons Team PageYahoo Falcons ReportYahoo Falcons Depth ChartYahoo Falcons TransactionsYahoo Falcons PhotosOdds About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Duke Johnson trade an “interesting possibility” for the FalconsNew,80commentsJohnson was linked to Atlanta back in March. Now he’s expressing his desire for a trade in June.EDTShareTweetShareShareDuke Johnson trade an “interesting possibility” for the FalconsPhoto by Patrick Smith/Getty ImagesThe Cleveland Browns returned for mandatory minicamp and star backup running back Duke Johnson is pushing for a trade. Again. The offseason has been different for the former Miami running back, only one year after signing a three-year extension. With a new coaching staff in the Dawg Pound Julio Jones Jersey Super Bowl , along with some strong competition from Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, Johnson’s role is no longer clear and no longer with the starters.Earlier this offseason, it was reported he was on the trading block and he demanded a trade. Obviously, the team found no takers. In fact, Vaughn McClure of ESPN called Johnson “a longshot but an intriguing option to replace Tevin Coleman” back in March. And he’s not happy about it.It is day one of practice and he has already expressed his desire for a new team, per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. Football analysts have already put out a number of interesting landing spots for Johnson, and that includes the Falcons.Why does Atlanta make sense? First, while Devonta Freeman is finally healthy, there are no proven options behind him in case of another injury. There was promising but underperforming Ito Smith, recent draft pick Qadree Ollison, Brian Hill Julio Jones Jersey For Sale , and special teamer Kenjon Barner. Marcus Green, Atlanta’s 6th-round selection, was called a running back but later clarified he expects to play wide receiver.Johnson would be fantastic Freeman insurance, and is an absolutely phenomenal pass-catching back. He costs a very reasonable $6.4 million over the next two years and the team now has cap relief with their post-June 1st cuts. The biggest problems? The Falcons would almost certainly need to keep four running backs on the roster. That isn’t uncommon for Dan Quinn but requires them to trim a player somewhere. It also requires the team to cough up a draft pick or a player and it is not clear they have any intention of doing that. Maybe if Johnson is a big enough headache, that compensation drops to a more reasonable amount. Lastly, the biggest roster hole remains at defensive end. If the team is going to get aggressive, they could look at finally adding a pass rusher.
re Ravens and Tennessee Titans squared off in a regular season matchup. This is a bit of a family affair this weekend as Baltimore faces off against former defensive coordinator White James Hurst Jersey , Dean Pees.All-time record: 11-11Regular season: 9-10Post-season: 2-1Harbaugh era: 1-3 / 1-02017 (23-20 Titans)The big free-agent signing for the Ravens in 2017, Jeremy Maclin, was the focal point of the offense in this matchup. By the games end, Maclin finished with eight catches for 98 yards, the best for either team in terms of receiving yards. It was a sloppy, uneventful game for the Ravens. The longest pass play was 19 yards and longest run featured Alex Collins going 14 yards.Flacco threw two interceptions; one off a tip from Titans CB Logan Ryan to DB Kevin Byard and a second was a jump ball won by Byard. In the end James Hurst Jersey 2019 , the Ravens closed the gap from ten points to three with a touchdown to Mike Wallace, but they couldn’t secure the ensuing onside kick.2014 (21-7 Ravens)This was a strange one. The Ravens were hurting in the cornerback department. The starters for the contest featured Lardarius Webb and Anthony Levine. The standout corner for the game was Danny Gorrer, a former Raven in 2011 who had bounced around the league, with a 15-yard interception. Even with such a ravaged secondary, the Ravens pass-rush more than made up for the lack of talent. Elvis Dumervil produced 2.5 sacks, Terrell Suggs added another 1.5 and Timmy Jernigan notched 1.0 as well. Both offenses were lackluster Limited Justin Tucker Jersey , as both Joe Flacco and Zach Mettenberger’s completed 16 of 27 attempts. Mettenberger went for 179 yards and Flacco finished with 169.The ground game was the difference maker in this game as Justin Forsett produced 112 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries. The Titans finished with only 67 rushing yards.2011 (13-26 Titans)An early wake-up call for a team who finished 12-4. Flacco finished with less than 50% completion and tossed two interceptions to his one touchdown. The Titans defense also contained Ray Rice to 96 total scrimmage yards, an incredible feat as Rice usually broke through in the run or the pass.Matt Hasselbeck carved up the Ravens defense, going 30/42 and throwing for 358 yards. Kenny Britt led the team in receiving yards with 135 on nine catches and a touchdown, with Nate Washington coming a yard from eclipsing 100. The Ravens only allowed two touchdowns, but they bent enough for Rob Bironas to complete four of five field goal attempts.This weekend’s matchup will be an exciting one. Both teams are 3-2 and in early contention for a wildcard spot or better. A win over the other could carry big playoff tiebreaker implications. I’m not sure who has the advantage here with Pees moving from Baltimore to Tennessee. Does Dean know the ins and outs of the Ravens offense? Does Harbaugh and Marty Mornhinweg know how to break through the Pees’ defense? Hopefully, it’s the latter. Word of the three-year deal between the Ravens and tight end Nick Boyle leaked out before Thursday morning’s press conference officially announcing the pact and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh offered a simple explanation for the team’s interest in Boyle.Harbaugh said that Boyle is the “best blocking tight end in the league” and having that kind of player as part of the running game is an important part of the offensive puzzle that the team is building around quarterback Lamar Jackson.“Nick is a huge piece of our offense going forward from the standpoint of how he plays Justin Tucker Ravens Jersey , the tone he sets, the type of player he is,” Harbaugh said.Focusing on a tight end’s blocking prowess is a bit unusual in the current NFL and the reported $18 million payout might strike some as a lot for a player with 75 catches, 613 yards and zero touchdowns. Boyle didn’t do much other than shrug in response to those who might feel that way.“That’s a huge thing, like ‘Oh, paying this guy a lot Elite Justin Tucker Jersey , and he didn’t get a touchdown.’ Whatever they want to say, they can say. It’s not hurting my feelings,” Boyle said. “I have a lot of pride in what I do. Whether it’s catching a pass or having a really key block on a certain play, I think I get the same satisfaction out of it.”Boyle will join 2018 draft picks Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst at tight end and the Ravens will likely turn their focus to other positions with that one well squared away for the time being.
elvin Gordon and the potential holdout for Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has dusted off the debate regarding whether the NFL properly values the running back position. It does Terry Godwin Carolina Panthers Jersey , but only for truly special running backs.That’s the line of demarcation. Every year, the NFL has a handful of special running backs. And it’s always subject to change; last year, Rams running back Todd Gurley was special. This year, the jury on Gurley is out, at best.So who are the special running backs entering 2019? I see three: Ezekiel Elliott, Saquon Barkley, and Christian McCaffrey. Others could become special throughout 2019, like Joe Mixon, James Conner, and/or Dalvin Cook (to name only a few). Others who once were special could become special again, like Gurley, Le'Veon Bell, and (once his suspension ends) Kareem Hunt.When it comes to special running backs getting paid, the problem continues to be that the most special performances typically happen under the lowball terms of a rookie contract. By the time the player is in position to get paid, it’s entirely possible that his best days already are behind him.For example Youth Terry Godwin Jersey , Chris Johnson had 1,228 rushing yards as a rookie with the Titans, 2,006 in his second year, and 1,364 in his third season. He held out in 2011 to get paid, and he got paid he did. But then Johnson had more rushing yards than the career low for his first three seasons only once, with 1,243 yards in 2012.Other special running backs have improved after getting paid, like LaDainian Tomlinson and Adrian Peterson. Still, there’s a chance that by the time Elliott, Barkley, and McCaffrey get their financial rewards, they won’t do more than they’ve done before executing their second contracts.That’s why it’s important for special running backs to begin clamoring for new deals as soon as they become eligible: Elliott now, McCaffrey after 2019 Blue Michael Palardy Jersey , and Barkley after 2020. And it’s equally important for non-special running backs to think carefully about whether to take a stand in order to get their own contracts, because they are much more easily replaced than special running backs.For example, before Gordon holds out, he needs to assess his own skills relative to other available options, Gordon needs to consider the team he’s dealing with, and Gordon needs to ponder the end game.In Gordon’s case, Austin Ekeler would step in. How big is the gap between Gordon and Ekeler? That’s a question that Gordon’s camp needs to assess objectively, candidly, and if need be bluntly.Then there’s the fact that the Chargers don’t seem to be inclined to wobble. Their coach, Anthony Lynn, is a former running back and running backs coach. Lynn knows special running backs when he sees them, and if Lynn has no qualms about flipping the switch from Gordon to Ekeler, well, Lynn probably knows what he’s doing.Finally, what happens if Gordon holds out and demands a trade? Will another team offer something significant to the Chargers and also pay Gordon what he wants? Or will Gordon eventually cave Michael Palardy Jersey 2019 , like Maurice Jones-Drew did in 2012?A holdout likely won’t end well for Gordon. As running backs go, a holdout will usually end well only for truly special running backs. And those teams that have special running backs usually know that they need to move before their hand is forced. The Lions were down to one regular wide receiver, and they lost their leading rusher in the second half.And yet, it was enough.The Lions held on for a sloppy 20-19 win over the Panthers, in a game short on style points on either side.It will likely prove Pyrrhic for the Lions (4-6), as running back Kerryon Johnson left the game with a knee injury and didn’t return. He had 87 yards on 15 carries before leaving, and the Lions don’t have anyone nearly as productive as him in the backfield.They were also playing without wide receiver Marvin Jones (after trading away Golden Tate), but Kenny Golladay responded, with eight catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. That was the majority of Matthew Stafford‘s 220 passing yards.But that was enough to beat the Panthers (6-4) on a day when they didn’t run well (16 carries for 56 yards), didn’t pass efficiently enough to make up for it, and kicker Graham Gano missed a field goal and an extra point.Those kicking struggles likely led the Panthers to go for a two-point conversion which would have won the game on the road. But Cam Newton‘s pass to Jarius Wright was too high, and the Lions were able to run out the clock.It was a curious decision to not play for overtime, and the decision cost the Panthers their second straight road game.
stopped tweeting political statements in support of the sitting President due to concerns that he’ll “end up in San Francisco.” But could the truth be that he’s far more concerned about whichever locker room he lands in Chandler Jones Men Jersey , whether it be the 49ers or any other team?It’s one thing to have digital footprints that support an intensely polarizing political figure. It’s quite another to have a history of comments and related activities that create questions regarding a potential racial bias.Whether he has one or doesn’t isn’t the issue. The issue is whether reasonable minds may differ on whether he does — and whether that in turn will make it harder for him to be accepted by an NFL roster.A Saturday tweet from Jemele Hill, who retweeted a link to an item from Robert Littal’s BlackSportsOnline.com, pulled this much closer analysis of Bosa’s decision to abandon political tweets into mainstream view.“Nick Bosa is weak,” Hill wrote. “If you truly believe in what you stand for, you have no problem defending it. Bosa wasn’t just worried about how a city would receive him, he was worried about having to explain himself in the lockeroom. He wasn’t ready for that smoke.”Again, this isn’t about whether Nick Bosa actually has any sort of racial bias. It’s about whether his strategy is less about avoiding problems in San Francisco and more about avoiding problems with future teammates.Bills quarterback Josh Allen was able to overcome potential locker-room issues after being drafted by the Bills in 2018, based on much older tweets that could be more easily attributed to the younger-and-dumber version of himself. On the other end of the spectrum, former Eagles receiver Riley Cooper Color Rush Chandler Jones Jersey , who with the help of Mike Vick (they shared an agent at the time) overcame an ugly incident at a Kenny Chesney concert in Philly, never found footing elsewhere after being released by the Eagles at only 28 years of age. (More than a year later, Cooper got a look-see in Tampa, but wasn’t offered a contract.)In the aftermath of Bosa’s declaration that he has stopped tweeting in support of the President due to concerns that he’ll be drafted by the 49ers, it was fair to wonder why he or any other pro athlete should have to keep that aspect of their lives secret. The issues raised by Hill and Littal make Bosa’s decision less confusing, if he indeed was thinking about how those comments could impact his not-too-distant NFL future, wherever it may play out. TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals players are trying to ignore all the talk surrounding who the team will choose with the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.They’re also praising the leadership of current quarterback Josh Rosen.The Cardinals could select 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray, who according to several reports visited with the team’s top decision makers on Tuesday. That coincided with the team’s first series of offseason conditioning workouts at Cardinals headquarters.Rosen Chandler Jones Jersey Boys , who completed 55 percent of his passes and threw for 2,278 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 14 games last season, is taking part in the workouts. He wasn’t made available to media Tuesday. But his teammates spoke highly of the second-year quarterback the Cardinals drafted 10th overall last year.“I like Josh,” running back David Johnson, the Cardinals’ leading rusher in 2016 and 2018, said when asked how he’d feel if the Cardinals pick Murray. “I don’t know. I mean, it’s a business, and we all know that.”Johnson said Rosen is a “great leader” and that the two talk about life outside of football. Johnson recalled how Rosen approached teammates to get to know them as soon as he arrived as a rookie, and how he was ready to learn.Johnson has offered advice to Rosen about how to deal with the draft situation Cheap Chandler Jones Jersey , which has also spurned talk of trades involving the former UCLA signal caller.“I told him, ‘ignore it,'” Johnson said. “I definitely figured out how to ignore it, and I know he has, too. We don’t really know what’s going on and what they’re talking about with the draft, so come ready to play, learn the playbook and let the chips fall.”Third-year safety Budda Baker has tried to avoid reports and speculation about what the Cardinals will do in the draft.“Josh is here,” Baker said. “He’s always been that great player. He’s always been first (to arrive at the facility). That’s how he’s always been.”Any perception that Rosen isn’t a good teammate is inaccurate, Baker said.“You can talk to him. He’s that same guy that he’s always been Custom Chandler Jones Jersey ,” Baker said. “He led us last year. Even when he was done on offense, he’d give us encouragement (on defense).”Linebacker Chandler Jones said he was impressed with how Rosen ran the huddle in practice last season. “He was good at grabbing everyone’s attention,” Jones said. “He’s a leader for sure.”NOTES: The Cardinals’ preseason schedule was announced Tuesday. Arizona will host the Los Angeles Chargers and Oakland Raiders in the first two weeks (Aug. 15 vs. Oakland) then play at Minnesota and at Denver to round out the month. … Baker said new coach Kliff Kingsbury has already addressed one question he had, regarding where he’ll park his car when coming to the facility. “I had my spot last year and I didn’t know if it changed,” Baker said. “We have the same one as last year.” … Johnson said his main goal remains reaching 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving in a season. “I was so close in 2016,” he said.

Even with the return of Adrian Clayborn to Atlanta in free agency, Falcons owner Arthur Blank believes his team still needs more help along the offensive and defensive lines.“I think the needs in the draft are exactly the same as going into free agency: I think we’ve got to get younger on the offensive line,” Blank said, via Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. “We made some improvements, in that regard Calvin Ridley Falcons Jersey , in free agency, but we’re looking at that in the draft.“I think the defensive line continues to be a need for us. And we’ll look at other particular positions both on defense and, selectively, on offense as well.”Atlanta added offensive linemen James Carpenter, Jamon Brown and Adam Gettis in free agency and re-signed Ty Sambrailo as well. On the defensive line Elite Calvin Ridley Jersey , the Falcons brought in former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Tyeler Davison and former Atlanta draft pick Ra’Shede Hageman for visits as well. Grady Jarrett remains tethered to the team as well via the franchise tag and Blank has pledged that Jarrett will be a Falcon for life.However, Blank still sees room for more help along the line of scrimmage as the draft approaches.“The beauty of this year’s draft is that we have nine picks,” Blank said. “We’re excited about that. We’re able to do a lot of the things we need to do to improve the roster.”

The Ravens are of course among those teams, and it looks like they may be ready to announce a fairly significant one:Fans who read through the first sentence of Zrebiec’s tweet wouldn’t be crazy for thinking it might end with the name C.J. Mosley, but it appears Young (who was still under contract for 2019) is the first domino to fall ahead of the official opening of free agency. A follow up tweet from Zrebiec indicates it’s a part of a specific strategy by new GM Eric DeCosta:The details of the deal were later leaked by ESPN’s Adam Schefter:Around 8.5 million a year is a starting-player type figure, which probably speaks to the future plans they have for Young beginning this season. It also may signal the end for Jimmy Smith, who’s had an up and down tenure with the team since signing his last big extension.Regardless of the relatively significant figure White Willie Snead Jersey , this is a smart maneuver, especially in the context of it being a part of that new philosophy by DeCosta. Too often the Ravens have allowed players to ascend to max value before locking up their services at a reasonable rate, and hopefully Young represents the first example of Baltimore buying in on rising stock rather than overpaying for aging talent or allowing their homegrown stars to walk away in their prime.This is an especially deft move to make as they have one of the strongest cornerback rooms in the league and Young is among one of their more underrated (and younger) contributors. Him, Marlon Humphrey, and possibly Anthony Averett could all be some very nice pieces to build around for the next several years.As far as the Mosley situation (and other players such as John Brown and Za’Darius Smith) this doesn’t necessarily preclude them from engaging in talks with those players. In fact, this helps their cap in the long term by locking up Young at solid value, and potentially shows they already have their plans for how they would like to allocate their resources before free agency officially opens.For more on this situation as well as other Ravens related transactions White Brandon Carr Jersey , be sure to keep checking back with Baltimore Beatdown as we approach the new league year.

NFL DraftNFL Draft Profiles2019 NFL DraftClelin Ferrell would be an ideal pick for the RavensNew,38commentsEDTWith a large majority of the Ravens’ fan base clamoring for a wide receiver to be General Manager Eric DeCosta’s first draft pick on Thursday night, a certain player has failed to receive his deserved attention. Clemson’s Clelin Ferrell is a prospect that isn’t talked about enough as an ideal fit for Baltimore. With the losses of Terrell Suggs and Za’Darius Smith this offseason, the Ravens are left with uncertainty at outside linebacker. Matt Judon has proven to be a solid starter as he enters his fourth season, but who will line up across from him? Tyus Bowser and Tim Williams are figured to have larger roles in year three, but neither has gained the trust of the coaching staff to earn a starting role yet. This is where Ferrell would make a day-one impact.Although Ferrell isn’t as athletically gifted as Florida State’s Brian Burns or Michigan’s Rashan Gary Brandon Carr Jersey 2019 , he is possibly more NFL ready than both of them. In addition to getting to the quarterback, Ferrell is stout against the run, which is something that will be greatly appreciated after the loss of Suggs on the edge. Everything about Ferrell screams solid rookie producer, something Baltimore’s defense needs this season to avoid a big drop off in production from a season ago. It’s unclear exactly how high Ferrell could go, however. Several teams just ahead of the Ravens need edge rushers, including the Falcons, Panthers Daylon Mack Baltimore Ravens Jersey , Titans, Giants, and Seahawks. Ferrell is an enticing option for any team picking in the mid-to-late first round, so it’s very possible that he isn’t even available for Baltimore at 22. If the Ravens really covet him, they could trade up ahead of one of the aforementioned teams to ensure they land their guy. It seems highly unlikely that DeCosta wants to trade up in the first round though, especially for a player that doesn’t seem to have immediate game-breaking potential.Wide receivers, such as Ole Miss receivers D.K. Metcalf or A.J. Brown Cheap Daylon Mack Jersey , may be the sexy option in the first round, but some fans seem to undermine the effect of losing Suggs and Smith. The time to replace the great Suggs is here and selecting the franchises first first-round edge rusher since Suggs himself is a good way to start. Ferrell fits the definition of “play like a Raven” with his work ethic and hard-nosed play style on the field. Clelin is one of the safer picks DeCosta could make.

Hingle-USA TODAY SportsIn this segment we’ve taken a look at the progress and projections of each of the Panthers 2018 draft picks. As disappointing a season this has turned out to be, there is a lot to look forward to with the young talent on this team. The 2018 Draft may go down as one of the best this franchise has had from top to bottom, with multiple contributors on both sides of the ball. Let’s take a look at how these guys finished the season up against their earlier projections. Grades are based on production relative to draft position. In other words, how strong was the Panthers return on investment on a round-by-round basis?D.J. Moore, WR (Round 1, Pick 24, No. 24 overall)Week 13 breakdown: Since Week 7, D.J. Moore and Cam Newton have been able to develop solid chemistry as his responsibilities continue to increase on a week-to-week basis. To put in perspective how much D.J.’s production has improved since my last report, his season’s receiving yards projection has increased by 60%.Week 13 outlook: With Devin Funchess’ impending departure via free agency, D.J. Moore should be the Panthers No. 1 receiver in 2019... if he isn’t already.Final statistics16 games playedReceiving55 receptions on 82 targets (67% catch rate), 788 yards, 2 touchdownsRushing172 yards on 13 attempts Blue Terry Godwin Jersey , 13.23 ypcFinal grade: A-D.J. Moore provides this team with number one receiver potential going into 2019. He finishes the season as the highest graded rookie wide-out by Pro Football Focus. You can see Moore’s progression as the game slowed down for him in the graphs above. His production did taper off in the last third of the season, correlating strongly with the deterioration of Cam Newton’s shoulder. With Devin Funchess being a healthy scratch in Week 17 and his impending free agency, you’d have to think his time in Carolina has come to an end. Look for Moore’s sophomore season to be even stronger as he takes on additional responsibility in Norv Turner’s offense. Donte Jackson, CB (Round 2, Pick 23, No. 55 overall)Week 13 breakdown: Similar to the defense as a unit, Jackson has seen a drop-off from his hot start to the season. Regardless, he has the tools to be a great player in this league.Week 13 outlook: The inevitable rookie wall and injuries have slowed down his projections, but Jackson can still finish strong and look to build on a fantastic rookie season.Final statistics 16 games played4 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, 9 passes defensed73 tackles1 sweet pick-twoFinal grade: AAnalysis: Donte Jackson looks like he can be a lock-down corner in this league for a long time and the Panthers have to feel lucky that he fell to them in the second round. The play of Jackson and Bradberry this season gives the Panthers one less position group to worry about addressing this off-season, especially with the impending return of Ross Cockrell.Rashaan Gaulden Terry Godwin Carolina Panthers Jersey , S (Round 3, Pick 21, No. 85 overall)Week 13 breakdown: Gaulden has kept the exact same pace and honestly, there’s not much to say here. He seems to be a decent depth piece behind two veteran safeties.Week 13 outlook: Rashaan could potentially see more time at nickel if Rivera looks to shake up coverage schemes and personnel, but I’d expect more of an impact to come next season. Final statistics15 games played18 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 0 interceptionsFinal grade: CGaulden didn’t have much of an impact this season. With the potential departures of 37-year-old Mike Adams and Eric Reid at the safety position, Carolina will have to make some big decisions regarding this group moving forward. Gaulden’s tape from this season should have a substantial impact on these decisions.Ian Thomas, TE (Round 4, Pick 1, No. 101 overall) Week 13 breakdown: Thomas’ numbers tapered off after the return of Greg Olsen, but should steadily increase now that Greg is out for the year.Week 13 outlook: The future is here and we will see how bright it is. Jason Witten hasn’t done us any favors.Final statistics16 games played36 receptions on 49 targets (73% catch rate) Youth Terry Godwin Jersey , 333 yards, 2 touchdowns Final grade: A-Ian Thomas got better and better as the year went on. When Greg Olsen went down with his season-ending injury in Tampa, Thomas filled in admirably.The rookie continued to produce regardless of who was playing quarterback and emerged as a red zone threat in the Panthers final three games. With Olsen’s future in doubt, Carolina should feel comfortable with Ian Thomas as their starter moving forward. This was a fantastic pick on the third day of the draft. Marquis Haynes, DE (Round 4, Pick 36, No. 136 overall)Week 13 breakdown: Haynes has been activated for two games since Week Seven and has not produced much (one tackle).Week 13 outlook: Project pass rusher who may struggle to maintain a roster spot in next year’s training camp.Final statistics4 games played4 tackles, 0 sacksFinal grade: C-Haynes’ size is an issue at the next level, where he wasn’t able to produce much pressure in his limited opportunities. At 6’2” 235 lbs., Marquis will need to develop much better technique in order to mask his physical shortcomings and make the roster in 2019.

The Nigerian-born Obada was assigned to the Panthers as part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program in 2017 and spent that season on the practice squad. He then made the roster prior to the 2018 season the first player from this program to do that) and was named NFC defensive player of the week after tallying an interception, sack and quarterback pressure in first career game played, a win over the Bengals. Obada tallied eight tackles, two sacks and one interception in 2018. Most recently, Obada signed a one-year deal with the Panthers for the 2019 season.Obada will have a difficult time making the Panthers roster this season. but if he does he will have a homecoming game when the Panthers travel to London to play the Buccaneers in Week 6. I would imagine that would make the Panthers the London crowd favorite with one of their compatriots potentially playing in the game. I wonder if this had something to do with the Panthers being selected to play in the annual game in Europe. I would say Mario Addison and Brian Burns are locks to make the roster and take at least two of maybe six defensive end roster spots. The number is more like five most likely. Bruce Irvin should have one but at 31 and on a one year deal is no lock to make the roster. That leaves the other rookie Christian Miller and veteran hold overs Bryan Cox Jr. and Marquis Haynes fighting for two remaining roster spots. Don’t count Obada out though, the guy has had a long road getting to where he is. I think there is a good chance he is on the sideline when the Panthers take the field in London.
