    Titans’ Logan Ryan ready to face Patriots, his former teammates

    Titans’ Logan Ryan ready to face Patriots, his former teammates
    January 11, 2018 4:25 pm EST

    The Titans will face the NFL equivalent of royalty this weekend when they face Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots in the AFC divisional round of the playoffs.

    Players and coaches will tell you they don't sense an aura or a championship glow surrounding the Patriots (13-3). But that doesn't mean the Titans (10-7) won't use every advantage at their disposal to knock off the defending champs Saturday night (7:15 p.m. CT, CBS).

    After all, they have a player with direct knowledge of the...

    Logan Ryan bringing inside knowledge into battle vs. Tom Brady

    Logan Ryan bringing inside knowledge into battle vs. Tom Brady
    January 11, 2018 4:22 pm EST

    Logan Ryan lined up against Tom Brady plenty of times in practice during his four seasons with the Patriots.

    No doubt Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey has been tapping into Ryan’s brain and knowledge of the Patriots system, using him as a resource to prepare the Titans for Saturday night’s divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium.

    Ryan has a pretty good feel for Brady and how to defend him.

    The former Patriot, however, did his best to...

    Chance Warmack Makes Most Of Chance As Starting Guard

    Chance Warmack Makes Most Of Chance As Starting Guard
    January 02, 2018 3:43 pm EST

    Playing time hasn’t come easily for Chance Warmack this season and maybe things haven’t gone exactly as he planned upon signing a one-year contract with the Eagles as an unrestricted free agent last spring.

    But on Sunday against the Giants, Warmack was called upon to start at left guard in place of the injured Stefen Wisniewski and he played a solid game. Warmack said he “felt like a little kid out there” as he went the entire game after playing just 142 offensive snaps (15 percent) in the previous 13 games.

    The Eagles gained 351 total...

    Logan Ryan buys Titans DB’s gaming package for Christmas

    Titans cornerback Logan Ryan got into the Christmas spirit this week when he bought his fellow defensive backs a gaming package.

    Titans cornerback Logan Ryan got into the Christmas spirit this week when he bought his fellow defensive backs a gaming package.

    You tell by the comments that it was a big hit. Ryan's former teammate Devin McCourty jokingly asked why he didn't get one.  While former Titans cornerback Jason McCourty, who still has a home in Nashville,...

    Patrick Murray on winning kick: ‘I knew I was going to make it’

    Patrick Murray on winning kick: ‘I knew I was going to make it’
    November 21, 2017 10:18 am EST

    Patrick Murray has been so consistent since taking over as the Bucs’ kicker that he had no doubt when called upon to make a go-ahead field goal with four seconds left in Sunday’s win.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick completed three passes for 55 yards in the final three minutes, and Murray made good on his 35-yard kick to break a 20-all tie.

    "I take every kick the same, doesn’t matter the situation of the game," Murray said. "Going out on that field after Fitz and the offense drove down there and they did a terrific job, I knew...

    Is Patrick Murray the answer to the Bucs’ kicking prayers?

    Is Patrick Murray the answer to the Bucs’ kicking prayers?
    November 05, 2017 9:36 am EST

    He has been back with the Bucs for three games, but he still doesn’t have a wood-carved nameplate over his locker. Nick Folk’s name is still over a stall. "I’m just happy to have a locker," Patrick Murray said.

    He has been the answer to a prayer. And this is a man who prays. A lot.

    Remember when the kicking game was the Bucs’ cross to bear? Three games into his second stint in Tampa Bay, the 26-year-old Murray has settled in perfectly, 3-for-3 on field goals — one from 50 yards.

    Murray can’t explain everything that has happened to him...

    Patrick Murray will be new Bucs kicker

    Patrick Murray will be new Bucs kicker
    October 09, 2017 2:25 pm EST

    The Buccaneers brought in a bunch of kickers on Monday to assess their options for replacing Nick Folk after Folk missed three field goals in last Thursday’s loss to the Patriots.

    Folk also missed three kicks in the team’s Week Four win over the Giants, so there was likely already some thought of making a change and multiple reports indicate the Bucs have made their choice for a new kicker. It’s Patrick Murray, who is a familiar face in Tampa and whose agents have announced the move.

    Murray was the team’s...

    Question: So I hear you’re not only a huge fan of animals, but I don’t think there is another NFL player out there who has a baby black rhino named after him like you do at the San Francisco Zoo. That’s true, right?

    Answer: There is actually nobody else in the world that can say that. You’re welcome.

    Clinton McDonald provides food trucks with free food for post-Irma powerless
    September 15, 2017 1:37 pm EST

    Tampa Bay's pro athletes continue to be generous in helping the community recover from Hurricane Irma. DT Clinton McDonald helped arrange for food trucks to provide free food in four Tampa neighborhoods still without power Thursday.

    "The food truck was the No. 1 thing we wanted to do to serve the community," McDonald said as the Bucs prepared for Sunday's season opener at home against the Bears. "It's a humbling experience to be able to do it for the community. These are the same people that cheer for us each and every day, and support us 100 percent."

    Texans QB Tom Savage’s agent sounds off on benching

    Texans QB Tom Savage’s agent sounds off on benching
    September 14, 2017 11:06 am EST

    Texans quarterback Tom Savage's agent took to the media Wednesday to defend his client after the signal caller's abrupt benching in the team's season opener.

    Veteran agent Neil Schwartz expressed dismay over his client being pulled by Texans coach Bill O'Brien after halftime of Sunday's 29-7 loss to Jacksonville at NRG Stadium.
    "I'm still trying to figure this out ... 31 plays and you're getting benched?" Schwartz said in an interview with NBC Sports' Mike Florio. "It makes no sense."

    Tom Savage’s humble journey through highs, lows to Texans, NFL

    Tom Savage’s humble journey through highs, lows to Texans, NFL
    September 09, 2017 7:12 am EST

    Tom Savage was never supposed to be here. Then again, he always was. Half his life has been predetermined destiny. The boy with the arm who became one of the best freshman quarterbacks in the country. The first QB that Bill O'Brien drafted when a new coach began recreating Bob McNair's Texans.

    The other half still barely makes sense. Savage ran the Wing T in high school. He bounced between three colleges in five years and went 1,024 days without taking a recorded snap. He spent his entire second pro season on injured reserve and was one decision away from quitting football two years before the Texans turned him into a...

    Tom Savage razor-sharp in win over Patriots
    August 20, 2017 8:39 am EST

    He was sharp at the end of his time in the preseason opener at Carolina. 16-of-17 with a touchdown pass sharp, in that span.

    Savage and the Texans beat the Patriots at NRG Stadium, and the fourth-year quarterback completed eight of his nine passes for 98 yards. He also was perfect on the final eight attempts against the Panthers. Against New England, Savage found Jaelen Strong in the back of the end zone for a 2-yard scoring strike late in the first quarter....

    Greg Robinson allowed just 1 pressure in solid Lions debut

    Greg Robinson allowed just 1 pressure in solid Lions debut
    August 16, 2017 8:03 am EST

    When Greg Robinson was traded to the Detroit Lions this summer, he instantly became the leader to start at left tackle. Which is a scary proposition.

    Robinson, the second overall pick in the 2014 draft, has never been a good offensive tackle. He's never even been average, according to ProFootballFocus. He allowed 40 pressures in 14 games last year, and ranked 70th at the position according to PFF.

    That was out of 76 qualifying players.

    Now the Lions were asking him to replace...

    Tom Savage performing like a preseason All-Pro for Texans
    August 02, 2017 12:27 am EST

    After six practices at the Texans' training camp, something has become crystal clear about the quarterback situation. Rookie Deshaun Watson is helping to bring out the best in Tom Savage, and Savage is helping to bring out the best in Watson.

    Savage is the starter in camp for the first time in his four-year career. Watching Watson improve almost daily is having a positive impact on Savage, who has been Tom Terrific, according to coaches and players.

    They say Savage is in command of the offense, is confident in his ability to make every throw and is comfortable making...

    Grayson getting back in gear for NFL spot
    July 26, 2017 7:31 am EST

    Garrett Grayson knows he’s at a crossroads.The former Heritage High School and Colorado State standout who set multiple passing records as a prep and college quarterback, has seen more downs than ups to begin his NFL career.

    But this season — the start of his third with the New Orleans Saints, the organization that made him their third-round draft pick in 2015 — he views as make-it-or-break-it time.

    “I took a step back,” Grayson said Monday, “and that looks bad.”

    Now, he’s more than ready to take that step forward after spending all of 2016 on the...
