GM Jon Robinson and coach Mike Womens Miguel Montero Jersey Vrabel set up the visit, and coaches and players met officers, learned firearms safety and went to the shooting range.

The NFL is encouraging more outreach between teams and the community in the wake of several high-profile police shootings and the national anthem controversy, and Nashville police chief Steve Anderson praised the Tians for suggesting the visit.

The interaction between Titans players and our officers was exceptional, Anderson said (via Nashville’s WKRN). The conversations were relaxed, and it was clear that both groups had a good time being with each other. This was an outstanding idea by Jon Robinson and I am grateful that he brought it to us.

Coupled with the $9.341 million he was scheduled to make on the final year of his rookie deal, he’ll make $93.41 million over the next seven years.

The deal eclipses the previous big guard deal, the five-year, $66.5 million contract Andrew Norwell signed with the Jaguars earlier this offseason.

As FOX rules analyst (and former NFL V.P. of officiating) Mike Pereira said on Friday’s PFT Live (imagine that, a football show willing to talk about football rules), kickoff returns likely will increase under the new kickoff configuration, which is aimed at making the kickoff more like a punt.
