Deal for Second-Round Choice Leaves One

NASHVILLE And then there was one.Cornerback Roger McCreary agreed to contract terms Friday, a day before Tenne see Titans rookies are to report for training camp. The conclusion of negotiations with the second-round pick out of Auburn means eight of this years nine draft picks are now under contract Las Vegas Raiders Jackets .The only member of the draft cla s who has not signed is quarterback Malik Willis. The third-round pick out of Liberty is one 11 players overall taken in the 2022 NFL Draft who is .Based on his selection at No. 35 overall, McCrearys deal will be for slightly more than $9 million for four years (Source: Spotrac.com). The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder is expected to compete with 2021 first-round pick Caleb Farley for a starting spot opposite Kristian Fulton, a second-round pick in 2020. The secondary also includes Chris Jackson, a seventh-round pick in Willie Brown Jersey 2020, and veterans Buster Skrine and Greg Mabin, who started games for the Titans last season.You see the receivers that are in this league, general manager Jon Robinson said. You better have guys that can kind of match and cover them. Roger was great. He was great on the interview. We’ll see how it shakes out. You can’t have enough of them.Scroll to ContinueAnd now all eyes are on Willis.The strong-armed playmaker out of Liberty (he began his college career at Auburn) is expected to be a backup or role player this season with the idea that he could be Tenne sees starter as early as 2023.Franchise officials thought highly enough of him that they traded with the Las Vegas Raiders during the draft to move up four spots from No. 90 to 86 in order to select him. At that point, they felt Derek Carr T Shirts they could not wait any longer.I thought some teams might look at it like us and, like, here’s a good football player who has got a lot of good traits and things to work with and develop, Robinson said of the trade. And then as it got even closer and closer it became a little bit more apparent, we’ve got a shot here. I think his role will be determined by how quickly he comes in here and learns the offense and improves and gains the respect of his teammates. No different than any other player.Three months later, the hope is that he is not a late arrival due to protracted contract talks.Rookies and selected others are scheduled to report for training camp on Saturday. The full squad is scheduled to report on Tuesday, and the first on-field Robert Jackson Jersey practice is set for Wednesday morning.

Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick was not sur

Brian Kelly’s departure from Notre Dame to coach LSU may have surprised many people, butNotre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick was not one of them.Swarbrick addre sed Kelly’s decision to leave the Fighting Irish and with the Tigers in the SEC. He acknowledged that he could see Kelly’s departure coming.”I was not surprised,” Swarbrick said at a news conference on Tuesday morning. “There had been enoughin the weeks leading up that gave mea Brandon King Jersey pretty strong sense that there might be other things that were attractingBrian.”MORE: Swarbrick wasn’t exactly privy to the other offers Kelly had on the table. Nor did Kelly attempt to leverage them into a bigger contract at Notre Dame.Swarbrick saidKelly informed him that he was going to take the LSU offer. There wasn’t a chance for Notre Dame tomatch the deal, and Swarbrick was grateful for that. Why? Because he could feel a natural endpoint in the relationship between Kelly and the university coming.”Look, 12 years is a really long time at Notre Dame, and we were incredibly well served byBrian here Sony Michel Jersey for that period of time,” Swarbrick said. “But it’s a long time and I have contemplated for some period of timethat there had to be an endpoint coming. We hadn’t talked specifically about when that was but in both a long-term perspective in the near term, this wasn’t a surprise and I think this place is perfectly prepared to move forward.”Still, replacing a coach like Kelly, who is Notre Dame’s all-time winningest coach with 113 victories, will take a lot of work. And Swarbrick is just getting started in his efforts tofind a replacement, despite his inkling that Kelly might leave.”I’ve had a lot of outreach,” Swarbrick joked before acknowledging that he would be diving into the search in the coming days.BENDER: Swarbrick doesn’t have an exact candidate in mind. He explained he doesn’t keep a list of potential coaching candidates as some ADs acro s the country do. Instead, he’s looking for certain characteristics to identify the Fighting Irish’s next coach. Two stand out above all else.”Fit at Notre Dame is No. 1,” Swarbrick said.”This is a unique place. And it is David Andrews Jersey important that you understand and appreciate the uniquene ses.””Increasingly the role of college football head coaches is a CEO role,” he continued. “And so, clearly understanding your approach to building and managing staff becomes very important.”Additionally, Swarbrick noted that Notre Dame isn’t navigatinga rebuild as it did when it hired Kellybefore the 2010 season. That will make the new hire’s job a bit easier, as the coaching staff can focus on recruiting and player development.BENDER: Top four candidates to replace Brian Kelly at Notre DameBut what about the short-term? The Fighting Irish still have an outside chance to make the College Football Playoff, and if not, they’ll probably play in a New Year’s Six bowl game. So, what’s the plan?Well, it doesn’t include Kelly. Swarbrick announced that he will notcoach Notre Dame in its postseason appearance.MORE: “We will have our current coaching staff, I hope, largely intact and we’ll designate the person who has to make the jump ball calls, like how to use timeouts and the coin flip,” Swarbrick said.”But we’ve got a great staff. We’ve got great coordinators, so I’ve every confidence that we will be fully prepared for what I hope is the CFP game but if not, I’m certainwill be a great New Year Six game and Brian will not be part of that for us.”Swarbrick and the athletic department will name an interim coach soon. However, he noted that the interim coach will not be a candidate for the job, so that throws a wrench in the theory that defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman Curtis Martin Jersey could be elevated to interim coach and eventually become the succe sor to Kelly.As such, Freeman’s name will be one to watch. And if he isn’t given the interim title, that may indicate that the team is considering the 35-year-old for its coaching vacancy.

Clay Helton starting three-game trial to

USC entered the 2019 season with a shaky administration, a coach on the hot seatafter it failed to qualify for a bowl game, and big-picturequestions about whether the team couldcompete for a Pac-12 championship.The Trojans are2-1under Clay Helton after a30-27 overtime lo s atBYUon Saturday, but those questions persist heading into a season-defining three-game stretch.The questions about the administration will be addre sed in the aftermath of athletic director Lynn Swann’s resignation this week. The Trojans will need to hire an AD who has a long-term vision for a programthat ranks 20th in the FBS since 2010 Ikem Ekwonu Jersey according to . USC’s next three games vs. ranked opponents Utah, Washington and Notre Dame could go a long way in setting a course for that future.WOLF: Helton’s fate might hang in the balance despite the fact USC lost quarterback JTDaniels to a season-ending injury in its season-opener. There was speculation in the offseason about Urban Meyer, and even if Meyer doesn’t take over, the new athletic director might be inclined to hire a new coachonce established in the job.The BYU game serves as an example of the good and bad with Heltons in-game decision making.The Trojans converted two fourth-and-1sagainst the Cougars in the fourth quarter Terrace Marshall Jr. Jersey of a tight game. The first set up a 30-yard touchdown pa s fromKedonSlovisto Michael Pittman Jr., endinga drive in whichSlovishit 6 of 6 pa ses.The second set up a game-tying 52-yard field goal by Chase McGrath with 1:52 remaining.Then came abad overtime sequence that led to the lo s. USC lost a yard on first downand gained 5 on a second-down run. Helton had to take a timeout on third down with the play clock running out, andSlovisthrew an interception on the next play. BYU fans stormedthe field as the Cougars defeated the Trojans for the first time in school history.Slovis(24 of 34, 281 yards, twotouchdowns, three interceptions) hit 7 of Muhsin Muhammad Jersey 11 pa ses for 84 yards in the fourth quarter and overtime, but the one mistake resulted in a lo s. Unfortunately for Helton, that will get more attention than the victories over Fresno State and Stanford tostart the season.BENDER: Helton is now on the spot ahead of a critical four-week stretch.USC plays Utah at home on Friday, and the Utes are the favorites to win the Pac-12 and reach the College Football Playoff. It sounds harsh to say the Trojans will be in spoiler mode, but they will.A trip to Washington follows before a bye week and then a trip to rival Notre Dame. Helton is 1-3 against the Irish.Will it be over for Helton if the Trojans fail to win at least one of those games? Well, itsdifficultto fire a coach without an athletic director and its evenmore difficultto justify a change when the starting quarterback is out for the season. That won’t stop people from cueing up those big-picture questions, which have haunted the program since Pete Carroll and NCAA sanctions gutted its scholarships.There is more heat on Helton after Saturday, and that is the fine line between 3-0 and 2-1.Helton would be still getting questioned if he was 3-0, but Carolina Panthers Sleepwear Underwear the next three games have become much more intriguing.What happens if USC is 2-4?If the Trojans arent competing for a Pac-12 championship in November? Then all those questions will be answered.And we all know what that would mean for Helton.

Quarterback News Has Major Implications

The NFL never sleeps.Tuesday was supposed to be a day focused on who teams would be designating as their franchise players, with the deadline to use the franchise tag set for 4 pm ET. That news quickly faded to the background.UPDATE: 3/9 2:00 PM David Bakhtiari Jersey EST — The first domino fell in the 2022 quarterback carousel as it was reported that Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers would be returning to the franchise that he has been with for the past 17 seasons. Rodgers, the winner of the last two NFL MVP awards with the Packers, had considered retirement before making his decision to come back. Former Colts punter Pat McAfee was the first to break the news late Tuesday morning.While there are some reports that the deal would be in the range of four years and worth $200 million, making Rodgers the highest-paid player in NFL history, Rodgers himself refuted that a deal had yet to be agreed upon. However, there was no question he would be back in Green Bay.But that was not the only quarterback news to come out of the NFL on Tuesday. In a blockbuster deal that is, undoubtedly, one of the biggest deals in NFL history, the Seattle Seahawks agreed to trade QB Ru sell Wilson to the Denver Broncos for a bevy of future draft picks and players. Adam Schefter was first to report the trade. The deal is pending a physical and Wilsons approval, as he holds Isaac Yiadom Jersey a no-trade clause.The final trade compensation comes out to the following:Broncos receive:- QB Ru sell Wilson- A fourth-round pickSeahawks receive:- QB Drew Lock- TE Noah Fant- DL Shelby Harris- Two first-round picks, including No. 9 overall in the 2022 NFL DraftScroll to Continue- Two second-round picks- A fifth-round pickWith the top two quarterback dominoes falling today, this has a major impact on the Indianapolis Colts. It has been known for some time now that the Colts head decision-makers have been evaluating quarterback Carson Wentz and his future with the team. While a formal decision has not been made yet, it seems like the writing is on the wall.In a report from Chris Mortenson on Super Bowl Sunday, he revealed the belief that there is a good chance Wentz will be traded or released before March 19th. Wentz is already guaranteed $15 million for 2022, but March 19th is the day the rest of Wentzs $28 Aaron Jones T Shirts million salary becomes guaranteed. After general manager Chris Ballard and head coach Frank Reich failed to commit to Wentz for next season, the future in Indianapolis for the former No. 2 overall pick does not look very good.The news surrounding Rodgers and Wilson has a positive impact on the Colts chances of moving on from Wentz and getting something in return. With the two quarterbacks no longer available, Wentz becomes a more attractive option for a quarterback-needy team. Besides San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder Tuesday, Wentz may be one of the better quarterbacks available to a team that is looking for a veteran option.We will likely see a trade market begin to develop over the coming days for Wentz. The Washington Commanders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Carolina Panthers could all be looking to add a quarterback this offseason. It will be interesting to see how much interest other teams have and what kind of compensation the Colts could receive for Wentz.This also begs the question, though, of who the Colts will turn to Kurt Benkert Jersey at quarterback if they move on from Wentz? Looking at the free agent quarterback cla s, not many names stick out. A group that includes Mitch Trubisky, Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Andy Dalton is not something that brings much excitement to the franchise.The Colts could also turn to the NFL Draft as they look for their long-term signal-caller. Working against the Colts is that they do not have a first-round pick in this years draft. This quarterback draft cla s also lacks a truly elite prospect like in years past, with more unknowns on each of the top prospects. However, if the Colts feel like one of these quarterbacks could be the long-term solution at the position, do not be surprised if a big move is made to get their guy.Looking at the Colts’ quarterback situation as a whole, it is very likely that Indy could be taking a step back in 2022 at the position. However, in terms of the future for the team and at quarterback, it is looking to be the best available option.

Robinson Keeping Close Watch on Top O-Li

NASHVILLE By the time the 2022 NFL Draft arrives next month, Tenne see Titans general manager Jon Robinson will have traveled thousands of miles and watched hundreds of prospects.But based on reports of Robinsons recent visits, it appears he Jerry Rice Jersey s paying particularly close attention to some of the offensive line prospects who might be available when the Titans pick at No. 26 overall in the first round.Robinson and offensive line co. ach Keith Carter were at the Boston College Pro Day on Friday, . The star attraction there was 6-foot-3, 314-pound guard Zion Johnson, who is ranked No. 26 on The Athletics big board of draft prospects, No. 32 on Pro Football Focus big board.The visit to Chestnut Hill, Ma s., marked the third time in the past week that Robinson got a first-hand look at a top offensive line prospect who could be there when the Titans make their first pick a suming they stay in their current position. On Monday, Robinson was in Cedar Halls, Iowa, . The marquee prospect there was 6-foot-7, 330-pound right tackle Trevor Penning, whos ranked No. 19 on The Athletics Big Board, No. 23 on Pro Football Focus big board.Per the , Robinson was joined by two other Titans representatives, and the general manager had his eyes focused on Penning throughout the day.On Tuesday, it was off to College Station, Texas, where Robinson watched a number of Texas A&M players work out. But the Aggies top draft prospect is 6-foot-4, 325-pound guard Kenyon Green, ranked 24th on The Athletics big board and 42nd on Pro Football Focus big board.Its pretty clear from this Dante Pettis Jersey just how closely Robinson (back to the camera) was eyeing Green.Scroll to ContinueRobinson was at Ohio States Pro Day on Wednesday and Penn States Pro Day on Thursday. Neither of those schools has an offensive line prospect likely to be selected in the first round. But Buckeyes tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere and Nittany Lions tackle Rasheed Walker might both be available in the third round.Its also worth noting that back on March 10 the Titans reportedly , Carter and director of player personnel Monti O senfort, on hand for Tulsas Pro Day. The Golden Hurricanes top draft prospect is tackle Tyler Smith, who will likely be a second- or third-round selection.And there was reportedly at least one Titans representative on hand March 15, when tackle Bernhard Raimann (No. 29 on The Athletics big board, No. 13 on Pro Football Focus big board) was the top draft prospect working out at .The Titans have two George Kittle Hoodies Sweatshirts starting offensive-line positions to fill, as the team cut starting left guard Rodger Saffold (now with Buffalo) and did not re-sign starting right tackle David Que senberry (free agent).Its unclear whether 2021 second-round draft pick Dillon Radunz will be able to step into either starting role, as his progre s coming out of North Dakota State has been slower than expected.Tenne see drafted Georgia right tackle Isaiah Wilson with their first-round selection in 2020, but that turned out to be a disaster. Plagued by off-the-field i sues, Wilson played just four snaps for the Titans during his rookie season before he was shipped off to Miami just over a year ago. Wilson is no longer in the NFL.Robinson was asked at the NFL scouting combine whether those selections might make the Titans re-think how they evaluate offensive line prospects. He countered that the Titans also drafted offensive-line starters like tackle Jack Conklin (first Dwight Clark Jersey -round in 2016) and guard Nate Davis (third-round 2019), while signing free agents like Saffold and starting center Ben Jones.When you look at the last two guys we drafted I would say Dillon played pretty good in the San Francisco game his first career start , Robinson said. It wasnt perfect. (Hes been) slow to come along, but Ive got a lot of confidence in him. Ive talked ad nauseum about (Wilson), and it was not a lack of skill for that player. It was outside i sues.But weve had succe s with players. Its not like weve changed anything from when we took Jack Conklin or Nate Davis, both guys who played a lot of football. We signed Rodger Saffold, signed Ben Jones — all of those guys whove played a lot of football.

Jason Kelce Announces He Will Play in 20

Jason Kelce A J Brown T Shirts has officially decided toreturn to the Philadelphia Eagles next season.In typical cla sic fashion, the veteran center announced his decision via Twitter through the Eagles on Thursday. It wasnt just any announcement, but one that opened with Kelce pumping some air into a keg, presumably the one the Eagles sent him as a convincer to return for another season, filling a blue cup with beer, then taking a big swig.He teased the decision a bit by saying that he is retiring to host WIP sports talk. He was the guest co-host on Wednesday mornings program.Got a lot of questions on the air about my future Bobby Hart Jersey so decided I would clear it up right now, he said via Twitter. Fortunately, Ive decided to announce that Im retiring. Im hosting WIP. But Im definitely not retiring from playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, Im having way too much fun doing that. Looking forward to another year Philadelphia. All my teammates, lets go dominate.Scroll to ContinueNot long after Kelce’s announcement he and the Eagles agreed to a one-year deal worth $14 million, per Fox Sports, making him the highest-paid center in the league.
