He played in 15 games this past season, started in 10 and recorded a over 700 offensive snaps. His stock continued to rise into the offseason and he Austin Corbett Jersey now has a new contract."Jordan came back in phenomenal shape," Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said during training camp.

Jaguars add two of their former players

On Friday, the they were adding two former players to their coaching staff. Former running back will take over as the team's offensive quality control coach while former linebacker Tony Gilbert will serve Nickell Robey-Coleman Jersey as Jacksonville's a sistant linebackers coach.Robinson, who is a Deerfield Beach, Florida native, was drafted by the Jaguars in the fifth round of the 2013 out of Michigan. He will be remembered as one of the most dynamic collegiate offensive weapons in recent memory, as the Wolverines' mobile quarterback was a two-time First-team All-Big Ten player and Kenny Young Jersey won the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year award in 2010. Robinson played four seasons in Jacksonville and recorded 1,058 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 263 carries. According to the Jaguars, Robinson will a sist offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and the coaching staff in all areas of practice Eric Dickerson Jersey and game preparation.As for Gilbert, the University of Georgia product was drafted by the in the sixth round of the 2003 NFL Draft. During his rookie season, the Jaguars signed Gilbert off of the Cardinals' practice squad and he played on the Jags' defense from 2003-06. Since retiring in 2010, Gilbert Nolan Cromwell Jersey has held various positions coaching in the collegiate ranks, including stints at Georgia, Auburn, East Mi si sippi Community College, Georgia Military College, John Milledge Academy, North Carolina and UCF. According to the team, Gilbert, along with Linebackers Coach Mark Collins, will oversee the team's linebacking corps. In four seasons with the Jaguars and one season with the , Gilbert recorded 47 combined tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery. After hanging up the cleats, he jumped directly into coaching -- serving as Georgia's a sistant strength and conditioning Jamon Brown Jersey coach for a year before moving up the ranks to a sistant linebacker coach and defensive graduate a sistant with Auburn the following year.

Eli Manning says its not his job to ment

The era isn't over in New York quite yet, but it appears to be nearing its end. Like most endings in sports, it could get awkward.After a tumultuous season that involved , Manning still appears to be in the ' 2018 plans, but his long-term future remains in doubt. The Giants find themselves in a time of transition and hold the second pick in the draft, which means they could draft Manning's succe sor this year, which could lead to an awkward situation in the quarterback room. If that happens, Manning could get traded.Or he might be asked to serve as a mentor to the Giants' quarterback of the future. Except, that's not quite how Manning would see the situation.On Friday, Manning explained . Don't worry, he's not going to ignore Jake Fisher Jersey the other quarterbacks in the room. "It's not your job to mentor somebody, but I wouldn't look at it as that role," Manning said, per ESPN's Jordan Raanan. "I would look at it as it's my job to prepare and compete and be ready to play each and every game. In that proce s, you're always talking football, helping out the other guys in the room, whether it's this year or Geno Smith or guys over the years. You always have back and forth. You're always helping them out. Nothing changes."As he said above, that doesn't mean he won't help his fellow quarterbacks. Jonah Williams Jersey Besides, by now he's already well accustomed to working with younger quarterbacks, as the Giants have used draft picks on two quarterbacks -- Webb and -- in the past five drafts."Every year, you've got backup quarterbacks, and they're usually going to be younger than you," Manning said. "I'm used to that, and it's always about helping the other guys in the room and having great communication, great conversations. That won't be a big deal, just always want to help the younger guys learn as quickly as po sible, and when they're in there, plan to play at a high level. Jordan Evans Jersey " At this point in his career, Manning has every right to be more focused on extending his own career than worrying about the long-term future of the Giants. He's 37 and in the final years of his career. He's coming off a season that saw him throw 19 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, and average 6.1 yards per attempt. His pa ser rating? 80.4.Even still, it sounds like is going He came away "I had an opportunity to watch Manning's film because the Carlos Dunlap Jersey quarterback is the most important position on the team," Gettleman said last month, via the team's website. "At the end of the day, it wasn't a mirage. It was not a mirage." He's also not committed to using his first-round pick on a quarterback for the sake of taking a quarterback."With the second pick, we're going to take the best player," he said. "They screamed at me in Carolina, 'You've got to draft a tackle, you've got to draft a tackle.' If the value's not there when you pick, you're going to make a mistake. You'll make a mistake. We're going to set ourselves up so that we can take the best player available. And if the best player available is a quarterback, then that's what we're going to do."Gettleman added: "If you take a guy just to take a guy, especially at the quarterback position, and he fails, you set yourself back five years. You set yourself back five years because there are teams that are in what I call quarterback hell. They've got quality defense, they've got a good special teams, and they're going 7-9, 8-8, 9-7. And now if there is a legitimate guy, they've got to trade up and give away the farm to get the guy." None of this guarantees that Manning will be around in 2018. The Giants could find a trade partner once the sweepstakes is over. They could even release him after June 1 and But for now, Manning appears to be the starter in New Giovani Bernard Jersey York.

Stephen Jones on Dez We all know this is

Throughout this offseason, there has been an increasing amount of speculation that the will cut ties with wide receiver . On Thursday night, Cowboys executive vice president, COO, and owner's son Stephen Jones likely added more fuel to the fire.Jones acknowledged Bryant's competitivene s, but also again seemed to be laying groundwork to support the idea that Bryant's recent production Cincinnati Bengals Jersey has not matched his salary. Stephen Jones on Dez Bryant: No one wants to compete & get after it more than Dez. At the same time, we all know this is a busine s where everyone had to be accountable...Were going to be grinding it out trying to understand what is in our best interests of our busine s. David Moore (@DavidMooreDMN) Dez is set to count for $16. Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey 5 million against the Cowboys' salary cap in 2018, and the team could save $8.5 million in space by cutting him before June 1, and $12.5 million by designating him a post-June 1 release. Bryant signed a five-year, $70 million contract with the B.W. Webb Jersey Cowboys back in 2015, when he was coming off a three-season span where he played all 48 po sible regular season games and 91 receptions for 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns a year. Without question, he was worth the money at the time. In the three seasons since, however, Bryant has been plagued by injuries and has not performed at the same level when Chris Baker Jersey on the field. Dez has played only 38 of 48 games since 2015, averaging 63 catches for 857 yards and seven scores per-16 games. Quite simply, that is not even close to No. 1 receiver production.It makes sense that the Cowboys would investigate ways to ensure Bryant is appropriately compensated, but Dez has . The i sue for the Cowboys in potentially deciding to cut ties is that they are already lacking consistency and explosivene s elsewhere in the pa sing game. There was an obvious lack of speed and separation ability from their receiving corps last year, and Bryant was really the only player Ryan Hewitt Jersey capable of making plays either downfield or in tight windows. Unle s they upgrade significantly in free agency or the draft, it's difficult to see them moving on from Dez and also not experiencing even more pa sing game i sues than they did during the second half of the 2017 season.

Giants Super Bowl legend Jeff Hostetler

Before Bill Belichick became the coach of the , he earned his reputation as a defensive mastermind with the . And before Belichick's with Patriots quarterback , he had his own temporary rift with Giants quarterback Jeff Hostetler that stemmed from a practice incident that involved Belichick taking a football to the face.Just what is it with Belichick and backup quarterbacks? More on the NFL During an appearance on the "Three Guys before The Game" podcast on Monday, Hostetler -- a quarterback for the Giants from 1984-92 -- shared a story about the time he accidentally hit Belichick Robert Covington Jersey -- the defensive coordinator of the Giants from 1985-90 -- His story is below ( ): "My rookie year, I am a rookie quarterback with three other veterans on the roster. I've got Bill Parcells as a head coach, who did not want to draft me, and so I wasn't one of his guys. I had Ron Erhardt as a quarterback coach, who had been in the league forever. His offense is still being run by the Patriots, by the . It's probably the best offense that I've ever been involved with as far as being consistent, verbiage, all those things. And so I'm involved with all these guys that are all veterans, and I'm thinking Timothe Luwawu Jersey , 'This is a tough situation for me to come into.' And so I'm scared, basically. I'm thinking, 'If I make a mistake these guys aren't going to have any patience with me.'"Well, I would run a little bit of the seven-on-seven for the defense. And Belichick would always have these cards out and he would show us what he wants us to do. And then he would turn where the center would be, he would turn and he would watch his defense. And so we were running all these cro sing routes . . . and so all of a sudden, we're running these cro sing routes, and he stands right there where the center is. I drop back, and it's a two-yard cro sing route. And I drill it to the guy."Well, all of a sudden, Bill's head is right in the way. It hits him in the head. His papers fly everywhere. The ball flies everywhere. Everybody stops and it's like, everything just went Nik Stauskas Jersey quiet. It's like, 'Uh-oh.' And then he starts ripping into me and yelling at me and grabbing his papers. After that was over with, I had almost every defensive player come up to me and say, 'Hey, great job, Ho s. Great job.' And it was like, I was accepted. . . . Belichick hated me after that, but my only response to him was, 'Well, don't stand there.'"OK so, calling it a "rift" is probably an exaggeration given that Belichcik and Hostetler, who replaced an injured Phil Simms, with a combination of , Hostetler's steady play (20 of 32 for 222 yards, one touchdown, no picks, and a 93.5 pa ser rating), and luck (the Giants' one-point lead was preserved when Buffalo kicker Scott Norwood mi sed a field goal wide right).A year ago, the quarterback and coach reconnected. As ESPN's Mike Rei s documented at the time, , which Moses Malone Jersey marked Hostetler's first appearance at a Patriots practice since 2008. Hostetler revealed that the two don't speak often, but when they do talk, it's almost always about their personal lives and le s about football."Most of it nowadays is more, 'How are you doing? How are you handling it? What are you doing?' Two of my adult sons work with me and he's got two sons that are coaching with him. I was asking him about that -- the ups and downs of that. It is extremely rewarding, but it's also tough to do," Hostetler said at the time. "So it's more on a personal level. It's great just to reminisce a little bit with him as far as his family and where's he's at. "I congratulated him. I've been following him. I'm awfully happy for him, because that's hard work. He has a tough job, a tough profe Joel Embiid Jersey sion, and to be as succe sful as he's been takes a lot of hard work."

2017 Super Bowl Odds Pats Cowboys huge f

The NFL's regular season is over, . We know the higher seeds are pretty big favorites over the lower seeds and we know that Matt McGloin/ and Brock Osweiler/Tom Savage are facing off in an actual, real-life playoff game. NFL playoffs Whereas we usually look to the previous week when checking out previous odds, we're going to do it a little differently and take a look at where these teams stood a full year ago. The tracks the odds from Jan. 1, 2016, through now, with just 12 teams remaining in the playoffs. Two of them are substantially ahead of the rest. 1. (7-5, Previously 8-1 on Jan. 1, 2016): The Pats are guaranteed to play either Matt McGloin/Connor Cook, or Brock Osweiler/Tom Savage in their first playoff game. You can pencil them Wilt Chamberlain Jersey into the AFC Championship Game for a sixth straight season. If someone can upend the , they will waltz to the Super Bowl. 2. (7-2, Previously 14-1): Some folks saw Dallas maybe slowing down during the stretch run of 2016, but it wasn't the case. Even a lo s to the was fairly impre sive considering it resulted in looking like a stud backup quarterback. Having a bye is a huge help for the NFC's best team, obviously. 3. (8-1, Previously 10-1): An easy spot to put these guys after called his shot and the Packers ran the table. Green Bay fell as far as 80-1 at one point in the season, meaning there could be some dangerous money riding on the Packers right now. 8-1 isn't horrible odds for how warm this team has been. They get New York then will travel to Dallas or Atlanta if they win. 4. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-1, Previously 8-1): Another white-hot team that comes into the playoffs streaking. is playing well but has another gear, while threw his Markelle Fultz Jersey name into the MVP conversation with a late surge. Pittsburgh should continue leaning on him and could easily make it back to the Super Bowl given the lack of dangerous contenders in the AFC. 5. (10-1, Previously 20-1): The most underrated team in the playoffs. People aren't giving the Chiefs enough credit -- remember, they have the bye (not Pittsburgh) and they are well behind the Steelers in terms of odds, relative to their status as the No. 2 seed. Andy Reid is 19-2 after a bye in both the regular season and postseason, which is bad news for Pittsburgh if they win in the first round. 6. (10-1, Previously 40-1): OK maybe these guys are the most underrated team in the playoffs. Atlanta also has the bye, yet is behind Green Bay in terms of odds. is playing at an MVP level, has the potential to absolutely take over the playoffs and Dan Quinn has the defense playing better than people think. 7. Sergio Rodriguez Jersey (12-1, Previously 8-1): This is about as far as we've seen Seattle slip this season, but it shouldn't be surprising given their struggles. Seattle couldn't really run the ball against the 49ers this past weekend and it's impo sible to trust the Seahawks offensive line in the postseason. The defense hasn't been the same since went down. 8. (20-1, Previously 40-1): Do you believe in chugging magical playoff elixir and making another Super Bowl run? If so, these are pretty good odds. He has had great moments in the postseason and this season he again has a Giants defense capable of dominating teams (they've beaten the Cowboys twice) and one of the best receivers in the game in Jr. 9. (80-1, Previously 40-1): Talk about a steep dropoff. That's what happens when you move from a quality quarterback to a combination of and . The Texans could certainly advance one round because they host the on Wild Card Weekend, but it's hard to imagine the journey going any further than that, especially since a Pittsburgh win would send them to New England for the divisional round. 10. (80-1, Previously 50-1): It's easy to see this moving a little higher if were able to play, but . The Dolphins Justin Anderson Jersey also have the unfortunate responsibility of playing the Steelers in the first round -- a trip to Houston would be much more palatable. It's worth noting that Miami already beat Pittsburgh once this season, however. 11. Oakland Raiders (100-1, Previously 50-1): Clearly a huge factor here. The Raiders had a lock on the second seed until Carr went down and now they're underdogs to the Texans in the first round. They could certainly still pull an upset with either or Gerald Henderson Jersey Connor Cook, but it's not feasible to seem them advancing. If Pittsburgh wins, they would head to New England for the divisional round. 12. (100-1, Previously 40-1): That's a heck of a season for Jim Caldwell and to even make the playoffs. Their road to the Super Bowl is a ridiculously difficult one, however. First they travel to Seattle. A win would likely send them to Dallas (but also po sibly Atlanta). They would need to win one more road game before playing in the Super Bowl. That's brutal for a team with a thin margin of error in a ton of games this year.

NFL Week 14 odds picks Saints rout Jalen

So I gue s it's still po sible for me to have a winning week in this column. I was starting to wonder after a couple of 1-1-1 weeks if I was destined to push and pay the vig for the rest of my life.But thanks to a ridiculous comeback by the Detroit Lions that could not have happened without the Chicago Bears' total ineptitude, I can consider myself a winner. Hopefully, this week I can keep that going and maybe even post a 3-0 week. Stranger things have happened!Falcons at Chargers Latest Odds: Los Angeles Chargers -1 Fading Anthony Lynn and the Chargers worked well last week, but I Austin Romine Jersey 'm not as comfortable doing so with the Falcons as road favorites in this spot. Don't get me wrong, I think the Falcons will cover this spread, but betting on their team total is a safer play. The Chargers have allowed at least 27 points in nine straight games. They've allowed at least 21 points in every game this season but one, and that one was the season-opener against Cincinnati in Joe Burrow's first start (without a preseason). This is an awful defense we're dealing with here. When you combine that awful defense with some of the worst special teams coverage units in the league, you get a team that bleeds points to opponents. So instead of worrying about the Don Mattingly Jersey spread or total, I'm going to rely on the Falcons scoring points.Projected score: Falcons 28, Chargers 24Best bet: Falcons Over 25.5 (-110) Saints at Eagles Latest Odds: Philadelphia Eagles +7.5 So the Eagles are going from Carson Wentz to Jalen Hurts, and while Wentz has been awful and Mariano Rivera Jersey deserves to be benched, it's not like he's been the Eagles' only problem. This is just a bad Philadelphia team we're dealing with, and one with a lot of injuries. Jalen Hurts isn't going to come in and fix anything on his own. We're talking about a rookie who made a few nice plays against Green Bay, but he still finished with only five completions in 12 pa s attempts while playing in mostly garbage-time conditions. Now he's being asked to make his first career start against one of the NFL's best defenses (the Saints rank second in defensive DVOA). Also, did you know that over the last two seasons, the Saints are 8-0 both straight up Babe Ruth Jersey and against the spread without Drew Brees? You do now! Also, NFC East teams are only 12-18 ATS outside the division this season.Projected score: Saints 27, Eagles 14Best bet: Saints -7 (-105)Steelers at Bills Latest Odds: Buffalo Bills -2 The Steelers blew it against Washington on Monday. They had a 14-3 lead at halftime and should've been able to hold on and remain undefeated, but they didn't. They looked like a tired team in the second half, and for good reason: it was their second game in five days and third in 15. Well, this game will be their third game in 12 days. That's not easy for anybody to deal with, let alone a Steelers team dealing with injuries. That cancels out the fact the Bills are playing on a short week here. Plus, while the Dellin Betances Jersey Bills have struggled defensively to stop the run this year, that doesn't worry me, considering the Steelers don't even run the ball anymore. Projected score: Bills 24, Steelers 20Best bet: Bills -2.5 (-115)RecordUnitsLast Week2-10.9Season19-17-30.3

Browns Baker Mayfield expected to underg

No one can question the Jorge Posada Jersey toughne s of . The former first-overall pick continues to battle through a shoulder injury that's made it difficult to be as productive as he'd like to be for the , but he refuses to concede to the pain. That said, due to a short week following their Week 6 lo s to the on Sunday and their upcoming matchup with the on Thursday night, it'll be backup quarterback getting the start in Week 7. Mayfield will have a shot to return to the field in 10 Gary Sanchez Jersey days -- looking to wait until the season is over before he gets his shoulder repaired.The 26-year-old is reportedly expected to undergo offseason surgery once the 2021 season concludes, per Ian Rapoport of , to fix Masahiro Tanaka Jersey the torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. Mayfield and the Browns believe he can make it to that point with the proper management, but any setbacks could alter that decision.Despite his injury, Mayfield is currently enjoying the highest completion percentage of his four-year career (67.1%) and a career-high pa ser rating as well (97.8). This is without having the luxury of both Odell Beckham Jr. and Adam Lind Jersey on the field at the same time for any large stretch of time this season, and it's a testament to Mayfield's talent and evolving decision-making proce s once he takes the snap. That said, while he has only three interceptions through six games, the Browns are 3-3 heading into Week 7 and Mayfield has only six pa sing touchdowns -- clearly hampered by his injury. He's one of the next young NFL quarterbacks to potentially break the bank in the next few months, and Mayfield is doing his best to show the Browns he's the QB of the Wade Boggs Jersey future in Cleveland. Latest Odds: Cleveland Browns -2

Sean McVay tricked Kliff Kingsbury into

Kliff Kingsbury is the new guy on the NFC West coaching block, and you know what that means: He's subject to rookie pranks. And thanks to a clever move by Sean McVay, Kingsbury got got pretty good, somehow being tricked into believing a dinner out with Christian Kirksey Jersey two friends resulted in him losing the No. 1 overall pick.Say whaaaaaaaat? Yes, McVay is a merry prankster, apparently, and according to a story , he pulled a good one off on Kingsbury. The two friends were out to dinner and were joined by quarterback , who was Kingsbury's quarterback back when he played at Texas Tech.McVay plugged in a friend's number as "Roger Goodell" in his phone, had the friend fire him a text and sent Kingsbury into a tampering-fueled shame spiral."We have a mutual friend, and I put his name in my phone as Roger Goodell. And I had this friend send me a text saying, 'I can't believe you're at dinner with Kingsbury and Mahomes, you know better than this, this is tampering, you're both losing picks,'" McVay recalled. "I showed Kliff the text and he saw a ghost -- I said, you better call Cardinals GM Steve Keim right away. He said, 'I thought he was going to lose the Joe Thomas Jersey No. 1 overall pick.'" McVay apparently told Kingsbury pretty quickly that the whole thing was a gag, Myles Garrett Jersey primarily because he didn't want Kliff jumping up from dinner, sprinting out and calling his bo ses to let them know he had a little slip-up when it came to ."We couldn't let it go on too long but we got him pretty good," McVay said. "I was talking to him about that yesterday when I saw him. I'm pretty proud of that one."Kingsbury wasn't angry about the whole thing, but did declare some sort of vengeance would be forthcoming at some point. (Might I suggest getting any revenge out of the way early; Bernie Kosar Jersey serving it cold would result it in being close to the season and that might go poorly for Kingsbury when there's backlash to the backlash.) Imagine the moment if you're Kingsbury when you look at that text from McVay -- and presumably the mutual friend did it so that way everything was jovial and above board and there wasn't some random third party blowtorching Kingsbury's night for no real reason -- and you think for a brief moment that you've just cost your team the No. 1 overall pick as a result of grabbing dinner with one of your former players and a work buddy.The heart-stopping nature of seeing that is BRUTAL. There's no way Kingsbury could be confident enough in the 's tampering rules to laugh off the prank from McVay. I'm not even sure it' Rashard Higgins Jersey s not tampering to eat dinner with Mahomes, honestly, but I doubt the Chiefs would care that their quarterback is grabbing a bite with his old college coach, and it's not like Kingsbury can woo Mahomes away from Kansas City and to Arizona or anything.I wasn't entirely sure I could like McVay any more than I already do, but then he goes and does something like this and just scares the me s out of Kingsbury in a pretty incredible prank.
