Around the NFL: News and Rumors

Discussion in 'Other NFL Teams' started by RavensPunkXVX, May 5, 2017.

  1. The helmet's kinda cool, but the rest is meh. I was expecting something better.
     
  2. Well at this point Brady is just showing off...

     
  3. I'm convinced he could beat Lamar in a 40-yard dash.
     
  4. ewwww
     
  5. Yeah I think it was 2018 where they made damn near close to nothing. They did a bunch of expensive stadium/area renovations that year, and it was also the year Rodger signed an extension and they gave him like a $67M signing bonus.
     
  6. Probably one of the first "name" players to suffer a significant offseason injury...

    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Cam Akers suffered a torn Achilles' tendon while training.
    Akers will miss the entirety of the 2021 season while recovering from the injury. The news is devastating for Akers, who was poised for a breakout campaign in his second year as a pro. Akers finished his rookie season on a hot streak and Sean McVay had nothing but praise for him this offseason. Darrell Henderson will take on an expanded role with Akers out but the Rams will almost certainly be looking for a veteran to bring in as well.
     
  7. This is the worst part of the season imo. No good news or anything of substance. just holding your breath and hearing Miles Boykin is the next Julio in practice.
     
  8. Stafford already loses his runningback for the season. He only had a 1000 yard rusher in Detroit... ONCE when he was there. Going to LA he was getting everything he didn't have in Detroit, such a bummer.
     
  9. I mean I didn't think Akers was a special talent. Good player, but I think they can still run the ball effectively in that offense with a lot of different guys.
     
  10. he did some pretty special things in college behind an OL that might have been the worst group i've ever seen
     
  11. He had 625 yards on 145 carries and 2 TDs last season, he definitely could have built off that this season and rushed for 1000 yards.
     
  12. Probably. I just don't really care about 1,000 yards because I don't view it as a significant achievement. We're talking 60 yards/game. I think pretty much any back in the NFL today could get 1,000 yards if you give them 200-250 carries.
     
  13. Found this one interesting...
    • RICK DENNISONC, UNSIGNED FREE AGENT

      Vikings fired OL coach/run-game coordinator Rick Dennison.
      Dennison, who had served as the Vikings' offensive line coach/run game coordinator the past two years, is the league's first position coach to part ways with his team upon refusing the vaccine, which is required for all Tier 1 staff including coaches, front-office executives, equipment managers and scouts. The team will internally promote Phil Rauscher from assistant offensive line coach to Dennison's former role and move Ben Steele, Auburn's former special-teams analyst, to fill Rauscher's position. Although he was the first, Dennison isn't expected to be the last coach to walk away stemming from the league's strict protocols for those who are unvaccinated.

  14. I'm really sorry @Ice Bowl, the Packers front office is really screwing things up. First Rodgers, now Davante Adams. Though, perhaps you can talk him into trading Adams to us?



     
  15. The Houston Texans after months of not listening to trade offers, will finally listen to trade offers for Deshaun Watson.

     
  16. Interesting to see what happens. Can't imagine a team will be willing to trade for him at the moment until his legal situation and subsequent NFL suspension play itself out. Smart move by the Texans to sit tight and do nothing here for the moment. They've got all the leverage...
