    Titans’ Logan Ryan slams the door on Patriots’ playoff hopes with pick-six

    Titans’ Logan Ryan slams the door on Patriots’ playoff hopes with pick-six
    January 05, 2020 10:38 am EST

    Titans cornerback Logan Ryan had to stay loose. In a game in which he was tasked with stopping the Patriots' leading receiver in Julian Edelman and facing a quarterback destined for the Hall of Fame in Tom Brady, Ryan and the rest of the secondary kept their poise, and that made all the difference in helping the Titans win 20-13 on Saturday at Gillette Stadium to advance to the AFC divisional round.

    "He's going to make plays. He's gonna be a good quarterback. He's gonna put the team in a good place," Ryan said of Brady. "They're going to get the ball to the playmakers like (James) White and Edelman. We had better poise in the second half and got them to punt and kick field goals, keeping the score low."

    Both Ryan and cornerback...

    Cardinals special-teamer Gardeck’s journey from fast food to Pro Bowl alternate
    December 24, 2019 10:20 am EST

    - As he stood at the grill in the back of the McDonald's off Jefferson Road in South Charleston, West Virginia, Dennis Gardeck's mind would often wander as screens in front of him flashed with orders while timers controlled the cooking.

    He'd imagine one day talking about his experiences as a part-time employee at McDonald's while playing linebacker at Division II's West Virginia State University.That was four years ago, when playing in the NFL was a hope and a prayer for Gardeck, a 6-foot gym rat who has made an improbable journey to the league.

    Tennessee Titans Logan Ryan on pace to have a once in a decade season

    Tennessee Titans Logan Ryan on pace to have a once in a decade season
    December 05, 2019 1:59 pm EST

    Aside from being a two-time Super Bowl Champion and a great philanthropist, Logan Ryan‘s most fitting title might be “most slept on DB in the NFL” but let’s look at the numbers.

    You can always say that a cornerback is good in the NFL when they don’t get targeted often and it is hard to prove or dispute. However, the real test is what that cornerback does when he is targeted.

    So far this year, when opposing QBs have targeted Logan Ryan he has come away with 17 pass deflections and 4 interceptions. He leads...

    Saints’ OL Patrick Omameh ‘prepared for anything’ as he’s the latest to fill in after injuries

    Saints’ OL Patrick Omameh ‘prepared for anything’ as he’s the latest to fill in after injuries
    November 27, 2019 9:13 am EST

    Patrick Omameh had played in one complete game in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome over his seven-year career: a close loss in 2014 while he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    That changed Sunday.

    Omameh, in his first year with the Saints as a reserve offensive lineman, trotted out to the field in the first quarter after starting left tackle Terron Armstead left the game with an ankle injury. 

    "You have to always be prepared," Omameh said. "That's the role that you play if you're not a starter. The...

    Miami Dolphins: Rookie offensive lineman Isaiah Prince might just catch a pass while lining up as a
    October 27, 2019 10:55 am EST

    Former Ohio State offensive lineman was a three-year starter at right tackle and earned All-Big Ten honors his senior season

    You probably do not know Isaiah Prince, a rookie offensive lineman for the Dolphins. But before he catches a pass, you might want to get to know him.

    After being inactive for the first three games, the 6-foot-7, 305-pound former Ohio State player started the next two, against the Chargers (right tackle) and Redskins (when Miami...

    The Jacksonville Jaguars have promoted undrafted rookie linebacker Joe Giles-Harris from the practice squad to their active roster. To make room, the Jaguars waived second-year cornerback Parry Nickerson. The team also released quarterback Chase Litton from the practice squad.

    Giles-Harris was on the Jaguars’ practice squad from Weeks 1-7 after spending training camp and the offseason program with the team. He attended Duke and played in 34 games for the Blue Devils, compiling 312 tackles, 32 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. As a senior in 2018, Giles-Harris finished...

    Isaiah Prince admitted he was a bit nervous before his first NFL start Sunday, but he was satisfied with his effort afterward.

    The rookie sixth-round pick from Ohio State went from being inactive for the first three games of the season to being asked to step into the starting lineup after right tackle J’Marcus Webb moved over to the left side to replace the injured Jesse Davis.
    “It was definitely surreal for me,” Prince said after the game. “It’s been a dream...

    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
    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
    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
    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...

    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...
