    Janoris Jenkins makes Giant turnaround, playing his best ball of season

    Janoris Jenkins makes Giant turnaround, playing his best ball of season
    December 04, 2018 2:11 pm EST

    Not a lot of football games end in walk-off plays, and when they do, it typically is a kicker or an offensive player who gets to celebrate such an accomplishment.

    That’s why when Janoris Jenkins heard the defensive call on the fourth-down play in overtime against the Bears on Sunday and knew right away that the final snap of the game would be coming his way, he was excited.

    And when he made the play, swatting away a deep pass in man coverage without anyone near him to help, he was thrilled.

    Browns left tackle Greg Robinson making most of his ‘third chance’ in NFL

    Browns left tackle Greg Robinson making most of his ‘third chance’ in NFL
    November 30, 2018 8:24 am EST

    When Browns players ran onto the field at Paul Brown Stadium to stretch before Sunday’s 35-20 road win over the Cincinnati Bengals, left tackle Greg Robinson received some chest bumps and playful punches from rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.

    Robinson loved the exchange. The second overall pick in the 2014 draft is having fun and feeling comfortable with his new team. Mayfield is reaping the rewards.

    “He’s full of energy,” Robinson said Thursday as the Browns (4-6-1) prepared for Sunday’s road game against the Houston Texans (8-3). “And I appreciate it ’cause some days...

    Bucs rookie Alex Cappa makes NFL debut as O-line gets different look

    Bucs rookie Alex Cappa makes NFL debut as O-line gets different look
    November 27, 2018 9:15 am EST

    TAMPA — After spending the season's 10 games among the Bucs' inactives each week, rookie guard Alex Cappa made his NFL debut Sunday, playing 25 snaps at right guard.

    Cappa, a third-round pick out of Division II Humboldt State, said Monday that he's been anticipating his first game action and that a season of practice helped him prepare for his debut.

    "It's not too different," Cappa said. "You're obviously getting better being out here practicing every day, but it's good to get the experience....

    Why Xavier Su’a-Filo should remain the starter at LG over rookie Connor Williams  Read more here: ht
    November 16, 2018 12:52 pm EST

    Dallas Cowboys rookie second-round pick Connor Williams practiced on a limited basis Wednesday and appears to be on track to return to action against the Atlanta Falcons after missing last week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles following arthroscopic knee surgery.

    That doesn’t mean he will return to the starting lineup at left guard.

    Look for Xavier Su’a-Filo to keep the job after a strong effort against the Eagles. He was part of a unit that paved the way for running back Ezekiel Elliott to rush for 151 yards. Coach Jason Garrett said he graded out well against all-pro nose tackle Fletcher...

    Jason Garrett praises Xavier Su’a-Filo’s first start on Cowboys’ O-line: ‘He battled and competed ha
    November 14, 2018 9:11 am EST

    Xavier Su'a-Filo played well in his first start of the season at left guard, filling in for injured rookie Connor Williams. If Williams is unable to go this week, Su'a-Filo is expected to start again Sunday at Atlanta.

    "In this league, one good game, it's a good start, but especially as an individual you have to be consistent," Su'a-Filo said. "And that's the name of it."
    Su'a-Filo, who signed a two-year deal with the Cowboys after Dallas' Week 1 loss at Carolina, has plenty of experience starting at the NFL level. After being drafted by Houston...

    Baker Mayfield lobbies hard for more Greg Robinson at left tackle
    November 05, 2018 8:07 am EST

    Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield lobbied hard for more Greg Robinson at left tackle after Sunday’s 37-21 loss to the Chiefs.

    On two occasions, Mayfield mentioned Robinson — who subbed for an ill Desmond Harrison — when asked about positives from the game.

    “Greg Robinson starting at left tackle and playing well,’’ said Mayfield, citing Robinson as the first good thing to come out of the loss, which dropped the Browns to 2-6-1.

    Jackson made his first mark in Tampa on the football field. His next mark is coming in the boardroom.

    If business success involves defying expectations, relentless pursuit of a goal and having the humility to lead others in a common theme, then consider Vincent Jackson a winner.

    Wide receiver Brandon LaFell expands role in Raiders’ offense

    Wide receiver Brandon LaFell expands role in Raiders’ offense
    October 31, 2018 7:33 am EST

    After signing with the Raiders on Sept. 3, receiver Brandon LaFell played just 40 offensive snaps in their first six games and did not have a catch.

    On Sunday against the Colts, LaFell led the Raiders’ receivers by playing 46 snaps and had three catches for 39 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown.
    Despite his limited early use, several Raiders said they weren’t surprised to see LaFell take on a larger role in the team’s first game since the trade of Amari Cooper.

    How Garrett Grayson became Broncos’ newest quarterback

    How Garrett Grayson became Broncos’ newest quarterback
    October 30, 2018 4:45 pm EST

    Garrett Grayson walked through the front door of his home in Nashville on Wednesday, just returned from a day of meetings for his budding real estate company, when the phone rang with an opportunity for a career detour.

    Grayson, the former Colorado State quarterback (2011-14) who earned totals of 9,190 passing yards and 64 touchdowns, traded his business attire for a Denver Broncos uniform after the team cut backup quarterback Chad Kelly and promoted wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie to the active roster.

    Grayson, previously under contract with the Salt...

    Saints’ Larry Warford plays full game despite back issue, praises Cameron Tom
    October 23, 2018 9:53 am EST

    The back issue that caused Larry Warford to miss one practice last week and be listed as questionable for Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens will be something that requires maintenance through the entire season, he said Monday (Oct. 22).

    Nevertheless, the veteran offensive lineman hasn’t missed a single snap on offense this season for the New Orleans Saints.

    Warford played all 71 snaps in the 24-23 comeback win against the Baltimore Ravens. His services were especially needed when Cameron Tom, Warford’s backup at right guard, replaced an injured Josh LeRibeus at left...

    Niners Sign Ex-Texans Quarterback Tom Savage

    Niners Sign Ex-Texans Quarterback Tom Savage
    October 18, 2018 11:35 am EST

    When the 49ers lost Jimmy Garoppolo earlier this season, head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated the team would eventually add a veteran quarterback to the roster.

    With C.J. Beathard elevated to the starting job, his only backup has been Nick Mullens, a second-year undrafted free agent from Southern Mississippi promoted from the practice squad. That left the Niners in a precarious position if Beathard were to go down. And, in the games since he’s been the No. 1, Beathard has been hit often.

    DT Clinton McDonald glad he ended up with Raiders
    September 19, 2018 8:17 am EST

    While weighing destinations in free agency this spring, defensive tackle Clinton McDonald paid a visit to the Raiders’ facility in Alameda.

    “It was a good fit when I came out,” McDonald said Monday. “I just didn’t make the right decision.”
    McDonald, 31, instead signed with the Broncos, who ended up releasing the ninth-year veteran Sept. 1 amid 53-man roster cuts. Twelve days later, McDonald was in Alameda again, signed by the Raiders to fill a sudden need on their...

    Tillman-esque Dennis Gardeck More Than Just Bubble Boy
    August 30, 2018 11:54 am EST

    Isaiah Jackson, who grew up in Chandler when Pat Tillman was playing for the Cardinals, was just finishing up the Tillman biography “Where Men Win Glory” in his office at West Virginia State when he found himself looking out the window.

    Construction had made a mess of things in the offseason, but in the heat of the summer, Jackson – then the linebackers coach at the school -- saw one of his players, Dennis Gardeck, by himself on the dirt track around the stadium, working out.
    Jackson couldn’t help but see a parallel to Tillman, in some ways, quite literally.

    At 42, Hilliard became the first person in his immediate family to graduate college.
