Running back Jay Ajayi joined the Eagles in the middle of the 2017 season and split time in the backfield with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement on the way to a Super Bowl title.
Blount left as a free agent this offseason, but Clement is still around and the Eagles brought back Darren Sproles after last year’s torn ACL. Recent draft picks Wendell Smallwood and Donnel Pumphrey are also on the roster and former Washington starter Matt Jones recently joined the team, so the pieces for another committee would certainly seem to be in place.
Always wanted to play in front of these fans, Marshall wrote in a post with a picture of him in a 12th man shirt.
The 34-year-old Marshall is a six-time Pro Bowler, but the Giants cut him in April with a failed physical designation. He was coming off ankle surgery after playing five games last year for Big Blue.
While players were discouraged by the league’s decision, they were happy that Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson publicly said he would not impose punishment on any player who protested, and would pay any fines the Jets, as a team, incurred from the league for their players staging a protest.
We’ve been actively in conversations with Christopher, on how we can go about it, and other ways to make change, Kearse said. I’m very appreciative of him. I think he kind of gets it, the fact that he has taken ownership, to support us and be actively involved.
We’ve spent an awful lot of time, I think this is our fourth day in the red zone, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, via Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I think it’s just important we get a lot of work in there. We put a big emphasis on it last year. We’re going to continue to do so.
While Cousins has found some early rapport with tight end Kyle Rudolph, the rest of the passing game is a work in progress. With new coordinator John DeFilippo putting in new things, there’s a big emphasis on installation this time of year, with a new set of basics like snap counts and play calls.
That’s why we’re doing it. It’s not easy, Cousins said. It is condensed. You have to be on the screws. Your throws have to be that much more accurate. The routes have to be that much more perfect in terms of the depth, the cut and the timing. That’s why we’re practicing it right now. . . .
