Strict (sort of) limits apply to what teams can do during offseason workouts. Contact is prohibited but most observers are more confused than J.R. Smith (timely!) over what that exactly means.
Enough contact is permitted (or at least happening) in Tampa to allow coach Dirk Koetter to develop an admiration of 350-pound rookie defensive tackle Vita Vea.
And while the timeline for the enactment of those laws — or even whether they are likely — is unclear at the moment, what is known is that there is plenty that still needs to be done before the NFL will feel comfortable cashing in on the looser sports betting economy that is almost sure to come in America.
According to the report, Herndon crashed into a car driven by a 76-year-old man, who suffered an arm injury. It is not clear whether Herndon was injured.
The Jets have confirmed they are aware of the arrest but offered no other comment.
A 6-foot-4, 253-pound tight end, Herndon had 40 catches for 477 yards and four touchdowns last season for the Hurricanes. The Jets took him with the 107th overall pick in this year’s draft.
If one play went differently in the AFC Championship Game, the Jacksonville Jaguars would have made the Super Bowl last year, mostly on the strength of their defense. Ramsey is a game-changer in a way that very few players ever are, much less at 23 years old.
If you believe that Patrick Mahomes should be on this list, I won’t argue. Instead, though, I chose Kareem Hunt, who actually played a significant amount as a rookie last year.
As a third-round pick out of Toledo, it’s hard to claim that anyone knew that Hunt was going to lead the league in rushing yards as a rookie. For the NFL’s standards, the Chiefs run a fairly option-friendly system, which is set up to spring tailbacks, quarterbacks and even tight ends at times. That certainly helped push up Hunt’s numbers, but the sheer volume of 325 touches in a season cannot be understated.
