    Former Patriots CB Logan Ryan Ready to Make Mark with Titans

    Former Patriots CB Logan Ryan Ready to Make Mark with Titans
    March 11, 2017 10:15 am EST

    Logan Ryan has two Super Bowl rings from his days with the New England Patriots. But the veteran cornerback is not arriving with his new team, the Titans, acting like a big shot.

    “I am not here to make promises or guarantees,’’ Ryan said on Friday. “I am just here to work hard, fit in with the team, be dependable and put the team first. I’ve heard there’s a lot of great guys in this locker room.

    “I am a guy who is going to come to work every day. I am very blue-collar in that nature. I will do whatever it...

    Larry Warford drawn to Saints in part because of New Orleans culture

    Larry Warford drawn to Saints in part because of New Orleans culture
    March 11, 2017 10:13 am EST

    New Orleans Saints fans might one day have a unique opportunity to meet the team's top acquisition thus far in 2017. Larry Warford, who signed a four-year deal reportedly worth $34 million, is an aspiring musician and thinks he might eventually take some time to jam around the city.

    Football, though, will be the top priority for Warford once he moves to New Orleans. The Saints signed the 25-year-old to be the long-term replacement for Jahri Evans, who held that spot for the past 11 seasons, and the team hopes Warford can provide the same powerful blocking skills he produced with the Detroit Lions the past four...

    Chance Warmack turned down better offers for Jeff Stoutland, Eagles

    Chance Warmack turned down better offers for Jeff Stoutland, Eagles
    March 11, 2017 10:10 am EST

    College is often called a formative time. Kids turn into young adults, learn what motivates them, and form bonds that last lifetimes. For the Eagles’ newest offensive lineman Chance Warmack, college was when he met Jeff Stoutland.

    Stoutland, then the offensive line coach at Alabama, left a lasting impression on Warmack. In his senior year, Warmack was named First Team All-SEC and a unanimous All-American, and the following spring he was selected 10th overall by the Titans.

    When he thinks of Stoutland, naturally Warmack thinks of some of the best football he’s...

    The 30-year-old veteran spent 2016 with the Bengals on a one-year deal. With A.J. Green missing six games due to injury, he emerged as quarterback Andy Dalton's top target down the stretch.

    LOGAN RYAN PERFECTLY SUMS UP PATRIOTS SEASON, SUPER BOWL LI
    February 08, 2017 8:58 am EST

    Logan Ryan wasn’t asked about anything specific, he was just asked for his general thoughts on the win over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI when the Patriots came from 25 points down to win.

    In his 1:30 answer, Ryan was very passionate about the season and also gave a message to kids to not give up even if life gets challenging.

    “It’s so fitting because this is where this team was, man,” he said. “We were counted out at the beginning of the year with [Tom Brady’s] four-game suspension. Throughout the year we were playing...

    Brandon LaFell ranked among best NFL No. 2 receivers at creating separation

    Brandon LaFell ranked among best NFL No. 2 receivers at creating separation
    January 31, 2017 2:09 pm EST

    One of the most under-the-radar acquisitions of the 2016 offseason, Brandon LaFell had a surprisingly good season for the Bengals. In his seventh NFL season, LaFell finished second on the team in both receptions (64) and receiving yards (862), while leading the team in touchdown receptions with six. He was arguably the MVP of the offense over the last two months when Green and Eifert missed time down the stretch.

    In fact, LaFell was one of the best No. 2 receivers in the NFL in terms of creating separation, according to a study by NFL.com’s Matt Harmon.

    Out wide separation: 2.72 (83.2 percent of targets)

    Logan Ryan yearns to be key game-changer for Patriots

    Logan Ryan yearns to be key game-changer for Patriots
    January 21, 2017 9:22 am EST

    Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan was irritated Saturday after he undercut DeAndre Hopkins’ route to break up a third-down pass for the second time in the game.

    Ryan went low for Brock Osweiler’s throw, wound up on the turf and was immediately congratulated by safety Patrick Chung, but the corner rolled his eyes because he expected more out of himself on the play.

    “I felt like I could have picked it,” Ryan said. “Some people see it as a good play. I felt like I could have picked it.”

    Logan Ryan keeps making big plays for defense
    January 16, 2017 2:13 pm EST

    It would be difficult to find a way for a defensive player to impact a game in more ways than Logan Ryan did in the Patriots’ 34-16 AFC divisional round win Saturday night against over the Houston Texans.

    The cornerback recorded seven tackles, a sack, an interception that set up a fourth-quarter touchdown and broke up another three passes, mostly while covering the top Texans receiver, DeAndre Hopkins.

    It was the type of all-around performance that the Pats will need out of Ryan going forward if they want reach Super Bowl LI. And, it...

    Lions’ Warford remains grounded as open market beckons

    Lions’ Warford remains grounded as open market beckons
    January 11, 2017 2:31 pm EST

    Larry Warford will tell you he doesn’t want to think about it, but, more likely, he doesn’t want to talk about it. There’s only so much a player can say about their impending free agency.

    Warford is set to hit the open market this offseason.  There’s no question he’ll have a starting job next year, it’s a matter of where. There’s no way you can keep thoughts of your future at bay. It weighs on you. In four months, he could be relocating to a new city to play for a new team, after spending his first four with Detroit.

    Cards’ new starting guard Taylor Boggs is the NFL’s feel-good holiday story

    Cards’ new starting guard Taylor Boggs is the NFL’s feel-good holiday story
    December 25, 2016 10:13 am EST

    Boggs, the first lineman LeCharles Bentley trained, finally started his first game in Week 15Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Taylor Boggs has become one of the more shocking stories in the NFL, with the former walk-on at Division II Humboldt State overcoming injuries and obscurity to finally become an NFL starter at 29.

    Boggs, who failed to make Humboldt's roster the first year he tried out, has been an offseason journeyman and a frequently-cut training camp participant who spent two years entirely out of the NFL but never gave up. He caught the eye of former NFL lineman LeCharles Bentley in 2011, when Bentley was considering launching what has become...

    Heart to heart helps Bears’ right tackle Bobby Massie figure it out

    Heart to heart helps Bears’ right tackle Bobby Massie figure it out
    December 25, 2016 10:08 am EST

    It takes a good friend to tell a struggling player he's on the verge of losing his starting job. That's precisely what LeCharles Bentley, the former Pro Bowl center who trains offensive linemen in Arizona, told Bobby Massie after the first month of the season.

    The Bears' new right tackle signed an $18 million, three-year contract in free agency, a deal that tied him as the seventh-highest paid player at his position across the league, and was making it look like McCaskey money not well spent.

    Massie allowed three quarterbacks sacks through the first four games and there were pressures. He...

    By all accounts, Tom Savage has what it takes to be an NFL quarterback
    December 23, 2016 4:09 pm EST

    The odyssey of strong-armed Texans quarterback Tom Savage can be traced to a grainy highlight video that still graces the website of the Cardinal O'Hara football program.

    It provides an extended snapshot of rare velocity and torque on his throws, along with a gritty toughness as Savage embraced absorbing and dishing out contact.

    Savage displayed a willingness to hang in the pocket under pressure, delivering spirals with poise. He showed off a cannon for an arm that still stands out as his top...

    Tom Savage leads Texans to comeback win over Jaguars
    December 19, 2016 10:43 am EST

    With Brock Osweiler reaching a new low against one of NFL's worst teams, the Texans finally changed quarterbacks Sunday and the long-awaited, lustily cheered decision to send Tom Savage onto the field in place of the struggling starter resulted in a 21-20 victory over Jacksonville at NRG Stadium.

    Lamar Miller sliced in from the 1 with 2:51 left, capping an eight-play, 52-yard Savage-led drive and Nick Novak added the winning PAT as the Texans improved to 8-6 and kept a share of the AFC South lead. Tennessee, also 8-6, defeated Kansas City 19-17 with a 53-yard Ryan Succop field goal on the final play of that game.

    With Darrelle Revis washed up, Giants CB Janoris Jenkins one of best in NFL
    December 13, 2016 9:29 am EST

    NFL receivers once faced banishment to Revis Island in New York. Now, they suffer an equally ignominious fate: Disappearing down the Rabbit Hole.

    The Giants’ Janoris “Jackrabbit” Jenkins may be the best cover corner in the league. He is certainly having one of the best 2016 seasons of any NFL defensive back.

    It has to be a pleasant sight for John Mara and Jerry Reese. They are paying Jenkins $16 million, the second most in “total cash” for the 2016 season of all NFL corners....
