    Giants’ Janoris Jenkins named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

    Giants’ Janoris Jenkins named NFC Defensive Player of the Week
    October 03, 2019 7:31 am EST

    Cornerback Janoris Jenkins was the Giants’ most dominant defensive player in a 24-3 rout of the Washington Redskins on Sunday, and was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts.

    Jenkins intercepted Washington rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins twice, broke up three other passes and produced four total tackles.

    One of Jenkins’ pass breakups came in the first quarter off quarterback Case Keenum, that wound up getting intercepted by Giants rookie linebacker Ryan Connelly.

    Titans’ Logan Ryan: Wreaks havoc against Browns

    Titans’ Logan Ryan: Wreaks havoc against Browns
    September 11, 2019 7:05 am EST

    Ryan recorded eight tackles, 1.5 sacks, one pass defensed, two quarterback hits and one interception in Week 1 against Cleveland.

    Ryan was seemingly all over the field against the Browns, leading the team in tackles, recording multiple sacks and also grabbing a key interception that essentially clinched the Titans' victory. Ryan's 2018 season ended prematurely due to a broken fibula, but he certainly showed no lingering effects in the season-opener. He'll look to...

    Greg Robinson’s technical progress evident in Browns camp

    Greg Robinson’s technical progress evident in Browns camp
    July 29, 2019 7:15 am EST

    There is a great deal of the Browns explosive offensive plans hinging on left tackle Greg Robinson and his ability to keep QB Baker Mayfield upright and comfortable. Robinson’s history says that’s a dicey proposition, but there are very encouraging signs from Browns training camp.

    Look at Robinson’s lower body in the clip above. See how his feet are moving in concert with one another, and how light and crisp he is on them? Those are qualities Robinson has not shown in his past career. Having covered him with both the Lions and Browns over the last two seasons, watching every single rep (often multiple times),...

    Cardinals LB Dennis Gardeck in spotlight a year after going undrafted

    Cardinals LB Dennis Gardeck in spotlight a year after going undrafted
    July 28, 2019 8:11 am EST

    At this point of last season, Dennis Gardeck was an undrafted linebacker product from the University of Sioux Falls with pro football dreams

    Success in the following months was winning a special teams role and sticking with the Arizona Cardinals through the regular season.

    Success now looks like another big leap.

    With Cardinals starting inside linebacker Haason Reddick requiring a knee procedure to reportedly clean up a meniscus, Gardeck is next man up. He found himself...

    Dennis Gardeck Comfortable But Not Satisfied

    Dennis Gardeck Comfortable But Not Satisfied
    June 21, 2019 12:51 pm EST

    Dennis Gardeck has a newfound comfort level in 2019. That was evident after an offseason practice earlier this month, when the former undrafted free agent chatted with veteran linebacker Jordan Hicks for 20 minutes about the finer points of the defense.

    A year ago, Gardeck had to work hard to keep his head above water while making the transition from Division II Sioux Falls to the NFL. Now it’s easier to breathe.
    “It’s night and day,” Gardeck said. “I don’t have to learn names. I was actually thinking about this today: I know where all the bathrooms are. So if they get congested, now...

    Roddy White will be the 11th member inducted into the Falcons Ring of Honor, the team announced Tuesday. The ceremony will take place before the Week 14 game vs. the Carolina Panthers on Dec. 8.

    To break the news, White's former teammates Matt Ryan and Michael Jenkins met with him at the team's headquarters. Highlights from White's career were playing as he walked in and Ryan shared the news.

    Cleveland Browns News: Nat King Cole’s grandson fighting for a spot

    Cleveland Browns News: Nat King Cole’s grandson fighting for a spot
    June 04, 2019 12:44 pm EST

    Undrafted rookie free agent Wyatt Ray is pursuing a football dream, but he has music royalty in his blood. Ray is the grandson of musician and civil rights trailblazer Nat King Cole, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.

    “The color barriers that he broke and all the racial issues he had to deal with traveling and playing in the south pushes me every day,” Ray said.

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame director of curatorial affairs Nwaka Onwusa said, "Nat King Cole was mentally tough for so many reasons, but during the time he was coming out there were so many...

    Logan Ryan, Titans’ ‘dog whisperer,’ pushes animal rescue into spotlight with fundraiser

    Logan Ryan, Titans’ ‘dog whisperer,’ pushes animal rescue into spotlight with fundraiser
    June 02, 2019 8:08 am EST

    In the Titans’ locker room, Logan Ryan is known as the dog whisperer. Just ask Marcus Mariota. When the Titans quarterback needed help training his dog, he gave Ryan a call.

    “He helped me kind of figure out potty training,” Mariota said. “Just a little tip here and there. He’s done a lot for me.”

    Ryan and his wife, Ashley, have done a lot for animals, which was evident to the over 350 guests at The Bell Tower in downtown Nashville on Friday for “The Chow Down.”

    Detroit Lions backup QB Tom Savage may have stronger arm than Matthew Stafford

    Detroit Lions backup QB Tom Savage may have stronger arm than Matthew Stafford
    May 31, 2019 7:52 am EST

    For the first time since the Detroit Lions drafted Matthew Stafford, the team could have a quarterback with arm strength that equals — or perhaps surpasses — that of the NFL’s No. 1 overall draft pick in 2009.

    Tom Savage signed this offseason to compete for the job as Stafford’s backup and during organized team activities, the Houston Texans fourth-round pick has shown off his cannon of an arm.

    But just how far can Savage throw the football?

    “I’d probably say on a good day, indoors, with the fan to my back, maybe 75 (yards),” he said...

    Cardinals DC Vance Joseph has his eyes on LB Dennis Gardeck

    Cardinals DC Vance Joseph has his eyes on LB Dennis Gardeck
    May 24, 2019 8:38 am EST

    Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph is getting to know his defensive personnel now that the offseason is underway. He has several players he has known from previous teams and a few carryovers from last season.

    Who is a player who has caught his attention? He named one of last year’s undrafted rookies who stood out on special teams, linebacker Dennis Gardeck.

    Joseph had a funny way of describing him.

    “I think a guy that’s going to be a guy that’s going to be a real guy is Gardeck,” he said on the Coaches Chronicle podcast.

    Janoris Jenkins survived Giants purge and is facing next challenge

    Janoris Jenkins survived Giants purge and is facing next challenge
    May 22, 2019 2:44 pm EST

    Cornerbacks are part of a defense and members of a team, of course, but they are often on an island — not in the Tom Hanks/“Cast Away’’ sense, but in that they often do their best work in isolation, one-on-one with a receiver.

    Janoris Jenkins in many ways is the quintessential cornerback. He is quirky and confident, upbeat and unusual, insisting everyone call him “Jackrabbit’’ and giving off an unflappable vibe after wins and losses, offering up the same persona after a pass breakup or a blown coverage, never sweating the small stuff.

    Jenkins started all...

    Get to know Dolphins rookie tackle Isaiah Prince

    Get to know Dolphins rookie tackle Isaiah Prince
    May 20, 2019 12:50 pm EST

    Miami Dolphins rookie tackle Isaiah Prince is hard to miss. At a legitimate 6-foot-6 and 305 pounds, Prince looks the part of an NFL offensive tackle. And with 35.5″ arms, Prince has the kind of reach that NFL coaches covet so dearly. Why?

    Because longer arms equate to a bigger strike zone and in the NFL, it is often he who strikes first that wins the rep. Having that kind of reach can help to mask a lot of fundamental issues. Consider it something of a life preserver. When things go wrong, long-armed tackles can fall back on their length to stay connected to their man.

    Joe Thomas: Greg Robinson can be a Pro Bowl left tackle

    Joe Thomas: Greg Robinson can be a Pro Bowl left tackle
    May 20, 2019 12:46 pm EST

    Greg Robinson took the left tackle job with the Cleveland Browns and ran with it last season. The Browns made the decision to part with offensive line coach Bob Wylie and hire offensive line/associate head coach James Campen during the off-season. Former Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas believes that

    "I got a chance to talk to James in the off-season after he got hired. I'm really excited for what he is going to do with Greg Robinson. Greg played some really good football last year but we all know that he can improve even on what he did last year. With the tutelage of James Campen, I think Greg Robinson can be that Pro Bowl left...

    Titans’ Kevin Byard, Logan Ryan pay for portion of Toni Harris’ mother’s funeral

    Titans’ Kevin Byard, Logan Ryan pay for portion of Toni Harris’ mother’s funeral
    May 20, 2019 8:30 am EST

    Logan Ryan has a daughter. Kevin Byard has one on the way. That’s left both members of the Titans’ secondary even more susceptible to the inspiring efforts of Toni Harris and what she’s doing for women in football.

    So much so that they were compelled to act.

    Ryan, a cornerback, and Byard, a safety, paid a portion of the funeral costs for Harris’ mother, who passed away last week.

    Harris, 22, is the first female to receive a full college scholarship for football as a non-specialist. In February, she signed a letter of intent to play safety for...

    O-Line guru: Giants trio can restore unit’s glory days
    May 20, 2019 8:27 am EST

    There are three Giants a certain offensive-line guru finds intriguing, believing they have the potential to anchor the position group for years to come.

    They are not newcomers Kevin Zeitler and Mike Remmers. It is not Nate Solder, entering year No. 2 for the Giants. That is the veteran trio viewed widely as the answer to all those nagging offensive-line questions that befuddled the team for so many years.

    They are Will Hernandez, Jon Halapio and, yes, Chad Wheeler, youngsters...
