The Rams made some of the biggest splashes during the offseason, wheeling and dealing a number of major trades.
In one of their moves, the Rams acquired cornerback Marcus Peters from the Chiefs. The controversial defensive back was selected 18th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, and has racked up 151 tackles with 19 interceptions in three seasons.
The Giants weren’t concerned about taking a running back with such a high pick. Gettleman values the position, especially with a team that doubled down on its veteran quarterback this offseason.
You know what I say about that. I think it’s a crock, Gettleman said of the notion that running backs have been devalued. At the end of the day, a great player is a great player. [Former Giants general manager] Ernie [Accorsi] and I have talked about it a lot. He’s a touchdown maker. He’s a threat to take it to the house every time he gets his hand on the ball. Like I said, a lot of that is nonsense. I think it’s someone who had this idea and got into the analytics of it and did all these running backs and went through whatever. Hey, [Giants running back] Jonathan Stewart is in his 10th year and he’s hardly lost it.
The Titans still made the playoffs last season despite Mariota’s struggles. Big offseason additions have helped bolster Tennessee’s roster, giving Mariota a great chance to bounce back in 2018.
With so many teams needing quarterbacks, the Titans opted to retain the one they had previous success with. If Mariota returns to his 2016 form, he could still blossom into one of the elite NFL signal callers.
We knew who our opponents would be, and that we would play seven games against teams that were in Nelson Cruz Jersey the playoffs last year, including two against the Super Bowl champions, so we knew it is going to be a challenging schedule, said Pat Shurmur, preparing for his first season as Giants coach. I don’t see anything remarkable about the schedule, but it is very challenging.
Jared Veldheer Jersey As usual, no Sunday night game has been scheduled for the last day of the season, Dec. 30. That will be chosen after the Week 16 games conclude.
Limited Womens William Perry Jersey The Saints, Rams and Ravens are the teams scheduled for the three-game road trips this season, but the Ravens and Rams also have three-game homestands. In all, 12 franchises are home for three straight weeks, and Baltimore and Indianapolis have a bye mixed in, meaning neither club will leave home for a month.
