Hoge’s Bears Camp Notes: Trevathan Says ‘Partying’ After Super Bowl Hurt Him Last SeasonAuthentic Carl Lawson Jersey,

ruptured patellar tendon in his right knee last November,Danny Trevathan suffered a gruesome,Authentic Josh Malone Jersey, but that wasn’t the only thing that prevented him from having the type of debut season with the Bears that he wanted.

“I was partying a little bit,womens Jake Elliott Jersey, just because I came here a little bit later,womens Myles Garrett Jersey, which is get back to work, get right back to work,” Trevathan said. “I didn’t really do what I usually do, stay on it throughout the whole season, all of that. I wasn’t myself.”

The partying occurred after Trevathan won Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos and before he signed with the Bears about a month and a half later. But the celebration and, the literal Super Bowl hangover, Authentic Jake Elliott Jersey,perhaps, cost him in 2016.

“It was a humbling experience for me and thank God I got people that (were) in my ear talking to me. Coach Fox,womens Carl Lawson Jersey,those guys did a great job communicating with me. They did a great job with pushing me and knowing the player that I am, Ryan Pace,” Trevathan said.

Speaking Thursday at Olivet Nazarene University,womens Jabrill Peppers Jersey, it was obvious that Trevathan wasn’t happy with his 2016 season. He mentioned multiple times that he could have “made more plays” before his season ending injury Week 12 against the Titans.

The extent of that injury potentially could have cost him his career. Authentic Myles Garrett Jersey,After suffering two fractures and a dislocated knee cap in his left knee in 2014, it seemed like a certainty that Trevathan would not be ready in time for training camp, it was fair to wonder how Trevathan would handle a torn patellar tendon in his right knee — an injury that sometimes takes a full year to heal. Back in November, but there he was Thursday with his helmet on, ready for the first practice.

” he said. “I didn’t do as well as I thought I would last year — new scheme. Authentic Jabrill Pepperss Jersey,I can make a lot of excuses,“I’m looking to be even better, but that’s not the type of person I am. I’m here to make this team better. They brought me here to help win some championships.”

At this point, womens Josh Malone Jersey , Trevathan is still limited and will be eased back into training camp slowly but the fact that the Bears did not place him on the Physically Unable to Perform list is a sign that they expect him to be ready for the regular season.

Danny Trevathan lays on the ground after rupturing the patellar tendon in his right knee last November.

Hicks leads promising group of linemen

The Bears defensive line that arrives in Bourbonnais next week will be led by veteran Akiem Hicks, who had a breakout first season with the team last year.

seven sacks,Authentic Vernon Butler Jersey,The most pleasant surprise in the 2016 free-agent class led Bears defensive linemen with 71 tackles, three pass breakups and two forced fumbles while starting all 16 games.

but him being him,an attitude that you want your d-linemen playing like,Authentic Devin Funchess Jersey," inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman said last season. "It's not just him, he's just one of those guys that demands attention. He just thinks he's the best thing smoking out there and he's going to play like it,"He just plays with an attitude, too."

A year after adding Hicks, womens Vernon Butler Jersey,the Bears bolstered their defensive line in free agency for the second straight offseason by signing Jaye Howard and John Jenkins.

Howard has appeared in 45 games with 28 starts over five NFL seasons with the Seahawks (2012) and Chiefs (2013-16). Authentic Daryl Worley Jersey, After playing in two games as a rookie with Seattle in 2012, he appeared in 43 games with 28 starts the past four seasons with Kansas City.

During the 2014 and 2015 seasons he made 23 starts and recorded 93 tackles and 6.5 sacks, with 5.5 of those coming in 2015 when the Chiefs went 11-5 and reached the AFC playoffs. Last year Howard appeared in eight games with four starts before suffering a season-ending hip injury. He finished the year with 23 tackles and one sack.

Jenkins has appeared in 51 games with 22 starts over four seasons with the Saints (2013-16) and Seattle Seahawks (2016), one forced fumble and one fumble recovery., recording 113 tackles, 1.5 sacks, two pass breakups, six tackles-for-loss

Jenkins was selected by the Saints in the third round of the 2013 draft out of Georgia when Bears general manager Ryan Pace worked in New Orleans' personnel department.

The 6-3,womens Ronald Darby Jersey, 359-pounder was released by the Saints last Nov. 9 and signed by the Seahawks Nov. 15. Jenkins played in nine games with one start last year,registering 13 tackles.

One key to the Bears' success this season will be the health of third-year nose tackle Eddie Goldman. After showing promise while playing in 15 games as a rookie in 2015,Authentic James Bradberry Jersey, the second-round pick from Florida State was limited to six contests last year due to an ankle injury.

"Eddie only played 15 percent of the plays last year,I think we'll have a good player there.", which is very small,Authentic Leonard Floyd Jersey," defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said in May. "He was primed to have a good season, so we missed him, so if we can get him back to where he was, and a little better

The Bears are hoping that Goldman can revert to the form he showed late in his rookie year when he registered 10 tackles,Authentic Shaq Thompson Jersey,  three sacks and three tackles-for-loss in a three-game span.

Expectations are also high for 2016 third-round pick Jonathan Bullard,womens Devin Funchess Jersey, a defensive end from Florida who didn't make much of an impact as a rookie.

Bullard appeared in 14 games with one start, registering 24 tackles and one sack.

"Jon didn't play a whole lot last year," Fangio said. "Hopefully he's ready. Authentic John Miller Jersey, You always look for a lot of improvement from Year 1 to Year 2.

"I think he's better prepared now to play in the trenches of the NFL than he was last year. He's gotten a little bit bigger. He understands more of what's expected of him playing in the NFL, both physically or mentally. Emotionally, in the trenches. I don't think he was quite ready for that last year, I think he's more ready. We're hopeful that he does well."

Also back this season are dependable veterans Mitch Unrein and C.J. Wilson.

One player to watch in training camp will be Roy Robertson-Harris, who moved from linebacker to defensive end this year after spending his rookie season in 2016 on injured reserve.

Rugby-styled tackling could do the trick for Leonard Floyd and the Bears

is that a lot of it centers around Leonard Floyd.Authentic Le'Raven Clark Jersey, ,Venture around conversation concerning the Chicago Bears this part of the long NFL summer and the best bet

There's obvious considerable excitement surrounding the edge rusher heading into his second season. When you note that the 24-year-old enjoyed a fantastic rookie year with seven sacks while showcasing the ability that made him the No. 9 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft,womens Jaelen Strong Jersey, most begin to imagine the immense possibilities moving forward. It's quite possible the Bears could be grooming their best homegrown pass rusher since Richard Dent or Dan Hampton in the 1980's. Floyd's potential in that light, cannot be discounted., and the buoy he'd offer the modern Bears as an elite pass rusher

The hype for the jump in production Floyd can make as a young player is real.Authentic D'Joun Smith Jersey

However, rife with nervous anxiety given the health issues Floyd has already dealt with but one NFL season under his belt.Authentic T.J. Green Jersey, , much of that anticipation is still tempered

That health, it's more ingrained into the job description of inevitability for anyone who participates in football at it's amateur levels, of course,Authentic Benardrick McKinney Jersey, is referring to the two concussions suffered by Floyd in 2016,let alone on it's highest plane.,the latter of which sent him into a cloudy fog until earlier this February. Floyd's experiences with head injuries aren't necessarily new for a professional football player. In fact,womens D'Joun Smith Jersey, at this rate

The good news is that Floyd is aware of how he has to change the way he plays while still understanding the tremendous risk of re-injury is there for him and all of his teammates as well as counterparts.womens Ryan Kelly Jersey

"Refinement of tackling technique" and "discipline" have been a common subject that's surrounded Floyd this off-season as he's worked to be more durable. You can't become a Pro Bowler or even All-Pro without availability and that's been priority number one for Chicago's most prized defensive asset. After all, even while a concussion can occur on quite literally any routine hit in a brutal sport such as football, ,Authentic Ryan Kelly Jersey,Akiem Hicks., both of Floyd's experiences happened while he lead with his head in running straight into Bears defensive end

Floyd has also reportedly packed on weight,In addition to better tackling technique, standing at a very solid 250 pounds, more patient and controlled Floyd can only be music to the Bears' ears., according to the Chicago Tribune. Authentic Jaelen Strong Jersey,A stronger

But what if in addition, the Bears attempted something still relatively groundbreaking in the NFL that could be applied to their entire defense? What if in making the effort to think outside the boxone the Bears should only look to Georgia to see in use.,Authentic Phillip Dorsett Jersey,their best young defensive player in Floyd could have his long-term health as both a player and human being preserved?

Another fall,Authentic Arthur Brown Jersey, another interesting camp awaits for WVU CBs

Cornerback is one of the most interesting positions on the West Virginia roster heading into the season.

Being forced to replace not only the top three options from a season ago but the position coach as well, West Virginia has had its work cut out for it at that position.

Last spring it was then position coach Blue Adams that was faced with filling the holes left behind by Daryl Worley, Terrell Chestnut and Ricky Rumph with a cast of characters with limited experience.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco likes QB Cardale Jones' upside

The Los Angeles Chargers did their homework on Cardale Jones before the 2016 draft, with quarterbacks coach Shane Steichen traveling to Ohio State to hold a private workout with the quarterback prior to draft day.

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco also had scouts present at Jones' pro day.

The Chargers received Jones in a trade with the Buffalo Bills this week for a conditional seventh-round pickwomens Maxx Williams Jersey,. Jones joins a quarterback room for the Chargers that includes franchise quarterback Philip Rivers, backup Kellen Clemens and former Arizona State quarterback Mike Bercovici.

The Chargers waived undrafted rookie quarterback Eli Jenkins to make room for Jones on the 90-man roster. womens Reggie Ragland Jersey,Jones will wear No. 5 on the field when the Chargers begin training camp at Jack Hammett Sports Complex on Sunday.

Telesco said the Chargers had been discussing a potential trade for Jones with the Bills since the draft, but finally executed the deal this week.

A fourth-round selection by the Bills,Authentic Maxx Williams Jersey, the former Ohio State quarterback worked with Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn last season while the latter served as Buffalo's offensive coordinator.

For now,Authentic Shaq Lawson Jersey, Telesco said the only expectation for Jones is to come in and compete.

" Telesco said. "And with Cardale,womens Shaq Lawson Jersey,"Obviously we're looking for competition at that spot, he's a quarterback with some developmental traits that are hard to find.

we haven't had a young quarterback in our system that we could work with,Authentic Reggie Ragland Jersey,"Our scouts had really high grades on him when he came out in the draft. And then the fact that Anthony had him in Buffalo for a year -- that way he knew him -- so it was a good blend for us and a good combination for that. Since Brad Sorensen, so he's going to be one of those guys."

working alongside Rivers' brother,Jones trained in San Diego before the draft last year with quarterback guru George Whitfield,Authentic Breshad Perriman Jersey,Authentic Carl Davis Jersey, Stephen Rivers.

"He's big. He's strong. He's got a strong arm,womens Carl Davis Jersey, played at a high level and played well. But his body of work in college is not as large as you would like," Telesco said of Jones. "He's a pretty good athlete,womens Breshad Perriman Jersey, so we know it's going to take some time. But it's hard to find a quarterback with those type of skills."

Wade Davis' value only increasing as Cubs closer options struggle

just like last summer,The Cubs have one of the best closers in baseball, but he might be gone in a couple of months.

Is there anyone in house who could take the role if Wade Davis signs elsewhere after the season?

" manager Joe Maddon said Sunday. "I know he's been off a little bit lately,"You'd like to believe that Carl (Edwards Jr.) could grow into it, but I still believe this guy is a closer waiting in the wings. Justin Wilson has already done that. He hasn't been on top of his game yet.

so we'll see how that all plays out.", of course,"Among the group, (Hector) Rondon has done that in the past. Absolutely there are candidates. Wade has done it on a really high level on a consistent basis

The Cubs haven't indicated whether they'll try to re-sign Davis, Authentic Nick Martin Jersey,who said at the All-Star Game he enjoys playing in Chicago but hasn't thought that far ahead. He's 23-for-23 in save opportunities and the only pitcher with 10 or more saves without a blown save.

and probably higher if he continues to excel., who has a $15 million player option with the Rockieswomens Braxton Miller Jersey,,Davis and former Royals teammate Greg Holland, should be the two most valuable closers on the market. At the very least Davis should command a four-year deal for $60 million to $70 million

though he's averaging 4.5 walks per nine innings,,womens Nick Martin Jersey,Davis has a 2.37 ERA and 12.6 strikeouts per nine innings with the Cubs, a career high. He hasn't pitched more than one inning and never earlier than the ninth.

believing "when a manager jumps in on those moments,Maddon declined to say whether they should re-sign the veteran closer,Authentic Brett Hundley Jersey, it can only hurt the ballclub."

In other words,Authentic Tyler Ervin Jersey, Maddon doesn't want his opinion to be used during negotiations.

but they have pitched and you have to be very cognizant of it."," Rizzo said. "They rarely get warmed up and not used. They know when they're coming in. Relievers are used often,Authentic Kevin Johnson Jersey,"Oftentimes the closer is the guy who has the most consistent routine out of all the relievers, and a lot of times they're not even used in the game

With Wilson and Edwards struggling recently, Authentic Braxton Miller Jersey,Davis' value to the Cubs increases.

and the price tag for the very best is not coming down soon.obviously,There aren't many elite closers,womens Brett Hundley Jersey, it got worked out and the rest is history at this point."

John Eisenberg believes that Jeremy Maclin’s signing relieves Breshad Perriman

The Baltimore Ravens were faced with a dilemma this offseason. Would they sign a receiver to aid speedsters Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman or would they stand pat with the youngsters behind them? Baltimore decided on the former.

After an injury-plagued 2016 campaign with the Kansas City Chiefs,womens Dion Dawkins Jersey, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was cut on June 2. On June 13, Maclin inked a 2-year/$11 million deal with the Ravens.

395 yards and 46 TDs in seven professional seasons. womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey,The question is,Maclin has had ample experience and success playing receiver in NFL. He has racked up 6, what could his signing mean for Perriman, who only has one pro season in the books?

Baltimore Ravens columnist John Eisenberg would weigh in on the situation.

Perriman was in a situation I saw as fairly precarious,“Before Maclin joined the team,” said Eisenberg on the team’s site. “After losing his rookie season to a knee injury, I thought.”,Authentic Dion Dawkins Jersey, he only had one up-and-down season on his resume,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, and it was clear in that season that he needed to become more polished and consistent. Yet now he was going to be starting on an offense under intense scrutiny after underperforming in 2016. It was asking a lot

Perriman should be able to learn a thing or two from the seven-year veteran. To play with a receiver that is a crisp and polished route runner will do wonders for young receiver like Perriman. The pressure will now be off of his shoulders and he can now focus on improving.,womens Lorenzo Alexander Jersey,womens Tre'Davious White Jersey,With the addition of Maclin

Perriman is always going to be under pressure to produce because of the round he was drafted in,,Authentic Zay Jones Jersey,“Yes,” Eisenberg continued. “But if he didn’t develop into the major playmaker the Ravens needed in 2017, he was going to take a lot of heat.”

which something that he has never done.,Authentic Lorenzo Alexander Jersey,Much would have been expected out of Perriman during the season if there wasn’t another receiver alongside of him. He would’ve immediately been asked to take hold of a starting role

Although Perriman has been amazing by many accounts during minicamp and OTAs, it wouldn’t hurt for him to slide into the number three receiver role. If he is the number three receiver and he has made strides in his playAuthentic Nathan Peterman Jersey, opposing defenses will be afraid of a much more formidable Ravens air attack.

Will Ravens Try To Get Back C Jeremy Zuttah After His Release?

It was reported yesterday that the 49ers have released center Jeremy Zuttah. Could the Baltimore Ravens get yet another lucky break this offseason and reacquire a past starter, whom they traded away for minor compensation,womens Randy Gregory Jersey, perhaps even at a bargain of his price?

One thing,Authentic Paxton Lynch Jersey, I think, is clear,Authentic Adam Gotsis Jersey, and that is that the Ravens are probably not going to put in a waiver claim for the veteran. The team was going to release him because of salary cap concerns before they were able to squeeze out some reward in a minor trade with the 49ers.

But should he clear waivers,womens Shane Ray Jersey, which is reasonably likely to happen, I see no reason why Baltimore would not pursue him in the hopes of re-installing him in the starting lineup at center, which is what his role has been for the past few seasons.

Zuttah was one of two starters that the team lost or parted with along the offensive line from last season, womens Adam Gotsis Jersey,and for most of the offseason, it has been a major concern. Recently, they signed veteran right tackle Austin Howard to fill the shoes of Rick Wagner, but he hasn’t even practice yet.

The team did not find any answers in seeking a possible replacement at the center position, even though they were entertaining the possibility early on this offseason of bringing in veteran Nick Mangold,Authentic Randy Gregory Jersey, a former Pro Bowl mainstay who is in the twilight of his career.

While Zuttah was certainly not a Pro Bowl talent—yet he made the Pro Bowl last season for the first time as an alternate,Authentic Chaz Green Jersey, replacing the Steelers’ Maurkice Pouncey—he is a capable starter and certainly a better option than what the team currently has on its plate.

Following the retirement of John Urschel,womens Paxton Lynch Jersey, and the injury to rookie Nico Siragusa, the job will likely fall to Ryan Jensen, a fourth-year player who has made nine starts due to injury over the course of the past two seasons. He was originally a sixth-round pick of theirs in 2013.

there is the mainstay of Marshal Yanda at right guard,As for the rest of the offensive line, womens Chaz Green Jersey,who remains among the best in the game. Last year’s first-round draft pick, was a plug-and-play starter at left tackle as a rookie with a promising future, Ronnie Stanley, and they also like what they have seen from Alex Lewis, who was a fourth-round pick last year and who spent most of the season starting at left guard.

The Ravens have really rolled the rice quite a bit this offseason, going through the main period of free agency and the draft while failing to address some important needs along the offensive side of the ball, Authentic Shane Ray Jersey,but they have gotten some fortunate opportunities to make up for them later on. Landing Zuttah could be another such opportunity.

n my look at Charles Clay last week,womens Quinten Rollins Jersey, especially if you only give him a cursory glance. The Falcons drafted Hooper in the third round in 2016 out of Stanford, I mentioned Austin Hooper as a tight end target with some upside who fantasy players in deeper leagues could pair with somebody like Clay to get a nice balance of safety and upside. It is easy to think of Hooper as a young tight end with upside, even if the Falcons do not lead the NFL in points per game for a second consecutive season., which has developed a reputation for producing tight ends thanks to the success of Zach Ertz and Coby Fleener. The learning curve is usually pretty steep for tight endswomens Damarious Randall Jersey, , so it isn’t unreasonable to think Hooper could take a leap in his second season. Hooper should be in a pretty good situation with a pretty good quarterback

That being said, that does not necessarily mean he is particularly likely to reach it, just because a young player has a high ceiling, or that he is worth pursuing in fantasy drafts. To make that determination, just as importantly, we require a deeper dive into his statistics and, his film.

Hooper had 19 receptions on 27 targets for 271 yards and three touchdowns. Authentic Brett Hundley Jersey,Those numbers are remarkably similar to Cameron Brate’s 2015 campaign,As a rookie last season, when he had 23 receptions on 30 targets for 288 yards and three touchdowns. Brate broke out last season, he would be a huge boon to whoever drafted him in fantasy., finishing seventh among tight ends in PPR scoring. If Hooper can make a similar leap this season

Brate’s breakout was aided by the demise of Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Had ASJ stayed out of trouble,Of course, Brate might have remained largely irrelevant for fantasy. Levine Toilolo probably isn’t as talented as Austin Seferian-Jenkins, so at least one impediment to playing time has been removed.,Authentic Damarious Randall Jersey, but he did play 54.9 percent of Atlanta’s offensive snaps in 2016 compared to 39.0 percent for Austin Hooper. The good news on that front is Jacob Tamme is gone. Tamme played 31.7 percent of Atlanta’s offensive snaps last season

Hooper is also a solid run-blocker. It is rare to see him whiff on a block, and while Toilolo is probably a better blocker,Authentic Quinten Rollins Jersey, and he has the size and strength to hold his own against linebackers. The Falcons had some success running behind Hooper, which would be a big step in the right direction.,womens Nick Martin Jersey, Hooper is a much greater threat as a pass catcher. Hooper probably won’t lead tight ends in offensive snaps next season, but I suspect he leads Atlanta’s tight ends in offensive snaps

Hooper had four touchdowns on 25 receptions last season. womens Ty Montgomery Jersey,The Falcons had a lot of success getting Hooper one-on-one against a defensive back in a red zone,If you include the playoffs, something that is easier to do with Julio Jones getting double-teamed. Hooper has demonstrated the ability to use his size to get some separation and go make a play on the ball. Unlike some tight ends like Charles Clay and Eric Ebron, he is also capable of making plays down the field., Hooper was not limited to underneath routes. While he can sit down in the middle of a zone if needed

including the SuperBowl,womens Brett Hundley Jersey,There were a couple of times during the season, where Matt Ryan went to Hooper but was unable to connect, and that confidence is only likely to grow in his second season., only to go right back to Hooper on the next play. I think that demonstrates Ryan’s confidence in Hooper

The more I watch Hooper’s film, the more I like the comparison to Cameron Brate, Authentic Nick Martin Jersey,slimmer and faster than Hooper, and was used almost exclusively as a receiver last season. Hooper is bigger and stronger, Hooper and Brate are different players. Brate is taller, and moves well for his size. He didn’t get too many opportunities to catch the ball and turn upfield last season, but I think defensive backs will have a difficult time bringing him down. Hooper is also a better blocker than Brate, and while the touchdowns may be a bit high, at least in terms of breakout potential. On the field, and if I had to guess,Authentic Ty Montgomery Jersey,I’d probably pick Hooper to get more snaps than Brate this season. Cameron Brate caught 57 passes for 660 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016, I think the other numbers are totally attainable for Hooper if things go well. I also feel like the probably of things going well for Hooper is pretty high.

Countdown to Camp: Day 4 – Deion Jones to follow up All-rookie season

The Falcons are counting on the “Beasley-Jarrett Factor” to help improve their defense at key positions.

They are hoping that three rookie starters — strong safety Keanu Neal, middle linebacker Deion Jones and strongside linebacker De’Vondre Campbell — can make big leaps in their second season like Vic Beasley and Grady Jarrett did last season.

Beasley went from four sacks as a rookie to leading the league in sacks with 15.5 last season.Authentic Austin Hooper Jersey,  Jarrett went from reserve to playing the most snaps (630) along the defensive line.

those rookies,” defensive passing game coordinator Jerome Henderson said. “You hope they come back and come back at that level. That’s the expectation. I think their coaches, those young guys,Authentic Deion Jones Jersey, were playing as well as anybody in the NFL at the end of the year,Coach (Doug Mallory) and Coach (Jeff Ulbrich) did a phenomenal job with those two you players (Keanu Neal and Deion Jones),“We hope that those guys,getting them ready to play and having them be productive. Again, we just hope that we start at the level that we ended the season at and we go up from there.

“I think those guys made the jump from the beginning of the season to the middle of the season to the end of the season. They played a lot of football, more than most rookies. womens Jalen Collins Jersey,They were playing the whole way and then going into the playoffs and playing those games against really good competition. You hope that they make another jump this year.”

Today, Authentic Kamalei Correa Jersey, we’ll look at Jones and what the speedy linebacker must do to make a Beasley-Jarrett like leap in his second season.

who was named to the Pro Football Writers of America’s All-Rookie team last season,Jones, plans to improve his communicating skills for his second season in the NFL.

my voice,” Jones said over the offseason. “Getting things set up and,“I think it’s just building from where I left off last year,womens Deion Jones Jersey,womens Austin Hooper Jersey, set up with communications and things like that. Just locking in on those and getting better with that each day.”

Jones impressed veterans with how quickly he picked up things and how he was a whiz at diagnosing the opposition’s plays. But if he keeps that knowledge to himself,Authentic Jalen Collins Jersey,the overall unit will suffer.

I know what I have to say,“All of the calls I have to make,womens Ronnie Stanley Jersey,” Jones said. “I know the communications. I’m just trying to learn everything so I can go to a different place with it instead of just knowing what I have to say.”

because of his size and speed,womens Kamalei Correa Jersey,The Monday Morning Quarterback blog proclaimed that Jones, is the ideal linebacker for the modern day pass-happy NFL.

In addition to becoming more vocal,Authentic Ronnie Stanley Jersey,  the Falcons want Jones to keep his weight in the range of 230 to 235 pounds. Jones weighed 222 pounds during his LSU Pro Day to run faster.

The Falcons don’t believe that adding weight would be a problem.

“I’m taking all donations,” Jones quipped. “I’m 230 right now. That’s pretty good. That’s a little heavier that I was last year.”

Indianapolis Colts rookies: Pro Bowl possible for young defensive backs?

Expectations can be tough to appropriately develop. You get a shiny new toy and assume it to be the greatest gadget in the world but that doesn’t always turn out to be the case.

it doesn’t hurt to give a forecast as a reference point.,Authentic Byron Jones Jersey, And though I don’t believe fans have gotten too crazy over what they are imagining Malik Hooker and Quincy Wilson to be

From 2010 to 2016, which is pretty damn low., 14 safeties were selected in the first round of the NFL draft. Only 2 of those 14 made the Pro Bowl in their rookie campaign; Eric Berry and Eric Reid. That’s approximately a 14% hit ratewomens Randy Gregory Jersey

However, Harrison Smith, Reid, 5 of those players have reached the Pro Bowl at least once in their career (Berry, Earl Thomas,womens Charles Tapper Jersey, Thomas, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix) and 3 of those players (Berry,Clinton-Dix) have made All-Pro honors,as well.

Karl Joseph and Keanu Neal for not achieving any of these accolades. womens Byron Jones Jersey,Randall has had an uneven few years in the league,It’s also tough to hold it against guys that were recently drafted, such as Damarious Randall, while Neal and Joseph had solid debut’s in 2016, so they could possibly be added to this list down the road.

so I would expect him to check these career feats off his NFL bucket list in the coming seasons.,Authentic Rico Gathers Jersey,If we exclude these 3 from the career achievements, and Hooker is also a more promising young prospect than a lot of the names from past years, 1st round safeties from the other drafts reached the Pro Bowl almost 50% of the time and found themselves on the All-Pro team 27% of the time. Those aren’t bad numbers

and doesn’t measure the success of an individual season. Nonetheless,And before I go any further, I understand the Pro Bowl is often a popularity contest, half the league seems to get in nowadays and it was a more interesting parameter to observe than something as potentially luck-based as interceptions can be,Authentic Charles Tapper Jersey, though picks are still an exciting statistic to look at as well.

but history dictates he has little chance of finding himself on the NFL’s All-Star team in 2017 and essentially no chance of reaching the All-Pro squad. Both are pretty lukewarm statements that haven’t seemed to gain any traction in the local or national media anyways and saying that Hooker has about a 50/50 chance of becoming a Pro-Bowler and around a 25% likelihood that he’ll become an All-Pro is only keeping that water at room temperature.,womens Rico Gathers Jersey,Hooker is clearly a generational talent on film

Reid 4 and Clinton-Dix picked off 1 pass. Hooker is thought of as the next coming of Thomas and has had a nose for the ball since he handed in his basketball shoes for football cleats late in his high school tenure,Authentic Chaz Green Jersey,Berry recorded 4 interceptions his first year,womens Chaz Green Jersey, Smith 0, Thomas had 5, which is why I would expect him to be on the higher spectrum of this list, meaning 4 or 5 interceptions is quite possible for the Colts newly acquired center fielder. That would be a fantastic contribution to a defense that treats the football like it’s dowsed in lava.

One last expectation I’ve seen thrown around here and there for Hooker is defensive rookie of the year honors. Authentic Randy Gregory Jersey,The last defensive back to win that award was Marcus Peters in 2015, 19 years ago. He would have to be truly spectacular on the field if he wants to add Defensive Rookie of the Year to his trophy case., and before that? Charles Woodson in 1998

Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby aims for Hall of Fame

watching the new class of inductees being introduced with his Arizona Cardinals teammates before the game against the Dallas Cowboys.,Karlos Dansby had never been to the Pro Football Hall of Fame before but there he stood last week on the field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium

only as one of those to be enshrined.,womens KeiVarae Russell Jersey,It was a moment the veteran linebacker hopes he can again be a part of one day

they want to see me get there,womens Steven Nelson Jersey, is to be there,“That’s my expectation,” Dansby said. “It’s been my expectation since Day 1, and to be there Thursday night knowing these guys being inducted are guys I played with and to congratulate them, too.”, before I even got on the field. To have that admiration and to be that ambitious

an achievement that belongs to only four other players,Dansby has some numbers that help make his case for Canton. The 35-year-old in his 14th NFL season leads all active players in tackles with 1,317, all retired., according to Stats INC. womens Mitch Morse Jersey,He’s one interception away from having 40-plus sacks and 20 or more interceptions (six returned for a touchdown) in a career

Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher.,Two of those four could be first-ballot Hall of Famers in next year’s classAuthentic Chris Conley Jersey,

Head coach Bruce Arians has a penchant for making sure he has a well-seasoned veteran or two at linebacker each year. Dansby also played for Arians in 2013.Authentic KeiVarae Russell Jersey,

and then the fifth guy is your young guy,“When you’re filling out your roster, you don’t want to have to put rookies in positions through injuries and have them fail,” Arians said. “If you can fill those four spots @ inside ‘backer or an outside ‘backer with a veteran player, you’re better off.”,Authentic Chris Jones Jersey,you’d rather have a veteran

Is the old Robert Nkemdiche back?

After being drafted by the Arizona Cardinals with the 29th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft,womens Dion Dawkins Jersey, 6’3, the former No. 1 overall prospect in the country who chose to play in Oxford over Alabama, Clemson and LSU was one of the most talked about names in the draft and the combine. But,the expectations were extremely high for the former All-SEC player. After all, not for the best reasons. Nevertheless, 294-pound guys who run a 4.8 40-yard dash don’t grow on trees so Bruce Arians and company pulled the trigger.

his career has been riddled with injury reports and questions about his focus,Since arriving in Phoenix, drive and overall effort. The Atlanta native managed just one tackle and one pass defended in his rookie year and some thought he might fall into the category of NFL flops that never seem to blossom into the great player they once were destined to be.

Then, Thursday night happened.

he’s on the right path.,Authentic Tony Jefferson Jersey, the Cardinals took on the Cowboys. And he didn’t just play,Authentic Tre'Davious White Jersey, he started. This was Nkemdiche’s first time to show that he’s changed his approach mentally and is focused on improving as a player and becoming an integral part of the Arizona defensive line. And it looks like,In the NFL’s Hall of Fame preseason game last night,womens Zay Jones Jersey, for now

Let’s take a peek at a few of the plays that stood out, shall we?womens Nathan Peterman Jersey,

in this first clip, get his head across the lineman, he doesn’t make the tackle,Now, but let’s not be naive. He completely blew this play up before it even started. Robert was able to completely whip his man, shed the block and force the cut back into the flow of the defense. Picture perfect slant technique.

Now, Authentic Zay Jones Jersey,let’s take a closer look and slow it down just so you can see his incredible quickness that he was known for in college.

Lol he’s already past the center before he is even out of his stance. Authentic Nathan Peterman Jersey,This is just remarkable speed off the football and what made NFL scouts drool over him a year ago coming out of college. The speed and athleticism to beat centers and guards off the ball and blow shit up is what is going to get him more PT this season. Rinse and repeat then do it all over again some more.

great, more opportunities for others to get one-on-one opportunities and the linebackers to be freed up. If he beats the double team,womens Tony Jefferson Jersey,This is where Mr. Nkemdiche can earn his stripes and play for a very long time in the league. He was drafted to be a guy to attract AND beat double teams. It’s a win-win for Bruce Arians’ defense. If he attracts them,Authentic Dion Dawkins Jersey, even better. Disrupt and destroy. That’s why he was drafted.

Then, we see Robert in his natural element: a double team.womens Tre'Davious White Jersey,

Brandon Williams ready to take his place as a core building block for Ravens

The Ravens have always made a point of investing long-term dollars to keep essential homegrown players, from Ray Lewis to Haloti Ngata to Joe Flacco.

$52.5 million, nose tackle Brandon Williams became the latest member of that exclusive club,womens Jourdan Lewis Jersey, signing a five-year,In March,Authentic Xavier Woods Jersey, with $27.5 million guaranteed.

Super Bowl MVPs and multiyear All-Pros. He was a third-round draft pick out of Missouri Southern and has just 4? sacks to his name in four seasons. He plays one of the least glamorous positions in the league,womens Garett Bolles Jersey, 28, might seem an unusual addition to a group that includes future Hall of Famers,Williams, and the closest he has come to the Pro Bowl was a second-alternate selection after last season.

in an offseason when they also signed safety Tony Jefferson and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin,,Authentic Jourdan Lewis Jersey, the Ravens made their biggest splurge to hold on to the 6-foot-1,Yet, 340-pound fireplug at the heart of their No. 5 run defense.


dean of the Ravens defense, the answer lies 275 miles north of BaltimoreAuthentic Ryan Switzer Jersey,For linebacker Terrell Suggs,womens Ryan Switzer Jersey, where all-world running back Le’Veon Bell takes handoffs for the archrival Pittsburgh Steelers.

“You definitely want a run-stopping nose guard to help you with one of the premier backs in the league,Authentic Garett Bolles Jersey,” Suggs said. “This organization is great with keeping Ravens as Ravens. Brandon Williams has proved himself. It’s good to have a Raven stay a Raven.”

the reason is even simpler. He expects Williams to be “a dominant player,For coach John Harbaugh,womens Demarcus Walker Jersey, flat-out.”

It’s not as if the Ravens shocked the world by spending big on their mammoth nose tackle. womens Xavier Woods Jersey,ESPN ranked him the No. 1 free agent in the league at the beginning of the offseason. And Williams would have received a substantial deal somewhere else if the Ravens hadn’t made an aggressive offer.

But the sweet-natured Missouri native understands that with the contract comes a new level of responsibility. Authentic Demarcus Walker Jersey,Williams wants to become a more versatile player who pressures opposing quarterbacks regularly, more akin to a prime Ngata than a pure run stuffer.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees could create more pass-rushing opportunities for Williams by regularly playing him in tandem with Michael Pierce and lining him up at defensive tackle instead of over the center.

" Pees said. "But I think he's a guy that can push the pocket. He's got some quick twitch. If all of a sudden they try and go one-on-one on him thinking this guy can't pass rush,"It's kind of hard to be a pass rusher on third down if you're not in the game, he's got some power. He'll push the pocket back there on the quarterback. I think we've got to use those guys maybe a little more than what we've done in the past."

a source of counsel to fresh-faced teammates. And he’s a public face of the franchise,Williams is now the old hand on a young defensive line, the guy the Ravens trotted out just before Suggs to talk to the media on the first day of training camp.

Williams looked like the same guy, grinning widely and wearing a purple t-shirt with cut-off sleeves that showed off the most gobsmacking biceps on the team. But the dude who once hefted portable toilets to make extra money in the summer and who survived a frightening bout with spinal meningitis in college is a fully minted NFL star.

Robert Nkemdiche trying to live up to the hype

It’s disappointing for fans to watch their favorite team use a first round draft pick on a player that doesn’t contribute at all in year one. Words like “bust” and “waste” start getting tossed around.

however,It’s sure to be disappointing for coaches and teammates as well. womens Joe Haden Jersey, The biggest disappointment, lies with the player himself. The inability to make any sort of impact has to hurt.

This offseason was a crossroads of sorts for Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche. womens A.J. Green Jersey,After playing in just five games, he had a decision to make. He had to either forget the past and work harder than ever, and recording just a single assisted tackle,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, or accept defeat and fade into history.

who dominated almost any time he wanted. Some questions about effort persisted,Authentic Tyler Eifert Jersey,Nkemdiche was widely considered to be one of the most talented players in the 2016 NFL Draft. He was an explosive pass rusher,Authentic Vontaze Burfict Jersey, but it was an off the field incident that defined his draft experience. He wound up falling to the bottom of the first round.

Coaches saw a change in Nkemdiche this offseason.,Authentic Gary Barnidge Jersey, After reports that he wasn’t mature last year,womens Jim Brown Jersey, he’s been more determined this year. It earned him some praise.

Nkemdiche’s ascendance is a necessity in 2017. Star defensive end Calais Campbell left as a free agent,Authentic Joe Haden Jersey, and there was no obvious replacement available. womens Vontaze Burfict Jersey, The former first round pick makes the most sense.

The Hall of Fame game provided Nkemdiche with the first chance to prove his selection wasn’t a mistake. Against the Cowboys,womens Emmitt Smith Jersey, but in limited action, he put the skills he showed in college on display. He didn’t play the whole game, he spent a large amount of time in the Dallas backfield. Authentic Dez Bryant Jersey,He blew past blockers, and changed the course of more than one play. It was a welcome sight for coaches and fans.

Obviously, though. Most importantly, it shows that Nkemdiche is ready to forget his rookie season,womens Tyler Eifert Jersey,one preseason game does not make a career or a season. It’s a positive step,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey and push forward to prove himself. He looked good,womens Gary Barnidge Jersey,and he looked hungry.

after his first outing of 2017,Authentic Emmitt Smith Jersey,Nkemdiche has a ways to go. For now,womens Dez Bryant Jersey, it looks like he does not plan to go quietly into the annals of history.

Worth The Money?

the reality of Fowler’s game wasn’t anywhere close to its perception.,Authentic Matthew Stafford Jersey,For all the hype in 2016-17

Alongside Sami Vatanen for the majority of the season,Authentic Darius Slay Jr Jersey, compounding their defensive limitations., he turned in a paltry 48.3 Corsi For percentage at even strength. Carlyle gave them a heavy dose of defensive zone starts along with difficult match-ups

To boot, a disastrous decision that was largely masked by excellent goaltending during the regular season., the Anaheim head coach entrusted Fowler with the most penalty kill minutes per game of any Ducks’ defenseman

Once the saves stopped coming at a league-leading rate in the playoffs, Authentic Derek Wolfe Jersey,with Fowler’s sub-par positional play firmly in the limelight., Anaheim’s penalty killing unit got exposed badly

or that of Vatanen’s.,It’s difficult to know how much of Fowler’s numbers last season were a commentary on his own playwomens Darius Slay Jr Jersey,u

Given that he actually did quite well next to Josh Manson, then perhaps we can be more confident in thinking that Vatanen was the dragging force there., posting an impressive 53.8 Corsi For percentage at five-on-five

though.,That’s not the point

The mark of an elite-level defenseman is the ability to prop up lesser partners while still driving positive results. Fowler has yet to demonstrate an ability to do that,womens Trevor Siemian Jersey, it’s difficult to imagine that he’ll magically develop that ability out of nowhere.,Authentic Justin Simmons Jersey, and at 25

the hope would be that he could at least come close to that.,womens Barry Sanders Jersey,Given how much he’ll soon be making

Fowler can be an impressive player.,womens Ziggy Ansah Jersey,Authentic Marvin Jones Jr Jersey,Under the right circumstances

but clearly that can be mitigated playing next to a true defensive rock like Manson. Meanwhile,He struggles to defend his own blueline, he’s excellent at breaking the puck out of his zone, using his elite-level skating to break opposing forechecking schemes.Authentic Ziggy Ansah Jersey

In the offensive zone, leading the pack in on-ice high-danger shot attempts at even strength., womens Justin Simmons Jersey ,he remains one of Anaheim’s more dangerous defensmen

Yet he’d always possessed those gifts. Playing a heavy role last season seemed to elevate the perception of him tenfold.womens Marvin Jones Jr Jersey,

“Look,The claim always seems to be, he played a ton of minutes in all situations”Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, falling well short of actually demonstrating that those minutes were appropriately allocated. All the evidence suggests that was far from being the case.

however. Both Vatanen and possibly Hampus Lindholm are set to miss the early going next season,Authentic Trevor Siemian Jersey,The Ducks have made their move,womens Derek Wolfe Jersey, which should once again place Fowler in a position where he’ll be asked to do a ton. Given what we know, that might not go all that well,womens Matthew Stafford Jersey,nless Manson is involved. Not exactly what you’d want for $52 million.
