    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.

    Outside the huddle with ... Alex Boone Each week, azcentral sports NFL writer Bob McManaman spotlights a member of the Cardinals for a series of on-the-spot, off-beat questions. This week: Alex Boone, guard.

    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

    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...

    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

    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...

    2017 Hall of Fame inductee Terrell Davis and his agent share a special bond
    July 01, 2017 10:26 am EST

    Before he was 'TD,' Davis was just a kid from San Diego that agent Neil Schwartz took a shot on

    Back before Terrell Davis became "TD," before he would chat with Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" after earning a Super Bowl MVP or get fitted for a mustard jacket to wear to Canton, Ohio, he made a promise that didn't seem plausible to keep at the time.
    Davis, a San Diego native, had just finished his college career after transferring...

    Titans’ Logan Ryan pays brother’s student debt with giant check, epic memo
    June 28, 2017 7:32 am EST

    Titans cornerback Logan Ryan surprised his big brother with a big check for his birthday – both in its physical size and its amount – $82,000 to pay off his college debt.

    The memo on the check, made out to American Education Services and posted on Instagram, reads “(Expletive) Student Loans.”

    “My man got accepted to college, graduated with honors, and now works as an engineer,” Ryan wrote online. “He did everything the right way and still lives with a ridiculous amount of student debt. The system is...

    Giants assistant who coached Janoris Jenkins with Rams sees major improvement

    Giants assistant who coached Janoris Jenkins with Rams sees major improvement
    June 25, 2017 9:02 am EST

    Tim Walton was the Rams' defensive coordinator in 2013 when Janoris Jenkins was a second-year cornerback bubbling with potential but lacking consistency.

    Walton wasn't retained after one season with the Rams, eventually landing as the Giants' cornerbacks coach in 2015. When Jenkins became a free agent after the 2015 season, Walton lobbied the Giants to sign the cornerback.

    The Giants gave Jenkins a five-year, $62.5 million contract and he rewarded the team - and Walton's - faith with...

    New Saints guard Larry Warford working hard to replicate relationship Zach Strief, Jahri Evans had
    June 24, 2017 8:03 am EST

    Larry Warford has always wanted what Zach Strief and Jahri Evans had together.

    Drafted in the same class in 2006, Strief and Evans spent so much time playing next to each other that they no longer had to talk when a defense did something unexpected. A look might do the trick; other times they simply knew exactly what the other person would do.

    Now, it's up to Warford to build a kind of camaraderie similar to...

    Greg Robinson: I plan to make most out of fresh start in Detroit

    Greg Robinson: I plan to make most out of fresh start in Detroit
    June 16, 2017 7:55 am EST

    Greg Robinson got the call last night, and he was shocked. The Rams had traded the offensive tackle to Detroit just three seasons after taking him second overall in the NFL draft.

    But Robinson wasn't exactly disappointed by the move either.  He knew he hadn't lived up to his lofty expectations in L.A., and immediately realized what kind of opportunity the Lions could offer.

    A badly needed fresh start.

    The moves are the surest sign yet that Detroit intends to be without left tackle Taylor Decker for a very...
