What happens to Brock Osweiler?

The Browns are toying with the idea of releasing him or trying to trade him, but at $16 million guaranteed for 2017 and an eternally expanding black hole where most team’s quarterback depth charts should be, there’s little risk in keeping Osweiler.

Cleveland appears destined to add a young, developmental passer this offseason, whether that’s a plug-and-play guy like Jimmy Garoppolo or a player they’d find in the draft is still up in the air. Keeping Osweiler would give them an insurance policy — albeit an expensive one — should the team cycle through injured quarterbacks like a broken Rolodex this fall.

If Osweiler gets released, he’ll still have his suitors, though no one will come close to matching the four-year, $72 million deal he got from the Texans. He could assume a backup role with several different teams or push to regain his starting status with a QB-needy team like the Jets, Jaguars, or 49ers.

Osweiler proved he isn’t the answer as a franchise quarterback, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a place in the league.

The reputation strengthened through the decades as Southern Miss’ victims list grew. Archie Manning and No. 4 Ole Miss in 1970. No. 6 Florida State in 1989. No. 13 Alabama in 1990. Mississippi State many, many times. Et cetera.

Southern Miss at its best is a terrifying mix of speed and salt and chips on shoulders. It is a team that won’t win all its games — even in 1954, the team that beat Bama lost to North Texas, Dayton, and Southeastern Louisiana — but can win against any opponent.

As such a foe, the Golden Eagles are graded on curves. We judge them against Conference USA peers, obviously. And they are given an S&P+ rating just like everybody else. But we also grade them on the SASM scale: Salty-Ass Southern Miss.

Why is Bill Belichick wearing Johns Hopkins lacrosse gear all the time?

Bill Belichick has a not-so-hidden love for Johns Hopkins, and he showed that off again at the combine Friday morning:

The Patriots coach walked to the field in Indianapolis wearing a Johns Hopkins polo shirt — a stark departure from his normal attire. Perhaps you think it’s a little weird he’d be wearing this, but Belichick’s passion for the Baltimore university is deep, particularly for its lacrosse team.

Shortly after, Hornacek iterated the players’ ability to understand the offense would play a part in who gets retained for next season.

“As times goes on, you say, can they get it? Are they getting better at it?” Hornacek said, according to ESPN.com’s Ian Begley. “End of the year comes and we’re having our discussions and you say, ‘Can this guy play this offense?’ We’ll say either yea or nay or he’s getting it, he’s getting better. So I’m sure that’s part of evaluations this summer.”

Some believe Knicks guard Brandon Jennings was bought out, in part, because of his inability to orchestrate the offense. He later signed with the playoffs-bound Washington Wizards.

Rose has an answer for avoiding a similar fate and learning the offense in the season’s remaining weeks.

“Don’t f’ it up,” he said.

It’s his play that has jolted an underperforming Portland team and has earned praise from Hall of Fame big man and TNT analyst Shaquille O’Neal.

“Nurkic, Chuck, I really like him in the post,” O’Neal said to Charles Barkley during a segment on Inside the NBA. “Great skill. I don’t know why Denver gave him up.”

That’s because Jusuf Nurkic is using his versatility as Portland’s Bosnian Army Knife.

The day after the Trail Blazers acquired Nurkic, head coach Terry Stotts broke down how he’d like to use his new center.

Antonio Brown kept his negative scouting report for 7 years as motivation

Bailiff’s tenure has been a success. But the downfall has been undeniable. Since winning C-USA in 2013, the win total has fallen from 10 to eight to five to three. The Owls’ S&P+ ranking has gone from 65th to 78th to 118th to 121st. In theory, when you raise your program’s standards and then fail to meet the raised bar, you are cut loose. But here Bailiff is, preparing for his 11th year near downtown H-Town.

Game Womens Tom Waddle Jersey Bailiff has already pulled off two turnarounds at Rice. Following a 3-9 debut, he ripped off 10-win season No. 1. And following a stretch of just 10 wins in three years (2009-11), he won 25 over the next three. He has proved that, given time, he can figure things out, and despite the crazy impatience of this profession, he has been given that time.

Does he have another turnaround in him? Based on what we’ve learned about the talent, it’s hard to be too optimistic. An offense that ranked 97th in Off. S&P+ must replace its leading passer, rusher, and receiver. A defense that was true dreck must replace maybe its two best playmakers. The defense does have far more experience than it did, and the offensive line could be one of the conference’s best. But is that enough? Injuries and a stomach virus played a role in Rice¡¯s low 2016 ratings, but is there actually upside?

Brown became the NFL¡¯s highest-paid receiver on Monday following a new four-year, $68 million deal with the Steelers. It comes following his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard season and a year where he caught his 50th career touchdown.

The scouting report called Brown ¡°thin and small in stature,¡± while questioning his work ethic. The report may have correctly predicted Brown as a late-round pick, but it turns out that letting Brown last until the sixth round will go down as a Tom Brady-like whiff from the rest of the NFL.
LeBron James Authentic Jersey
Players in the NFL and beyond are congratulating Brown on his new deal.

Panthers re-sign team sack leader Mario Addison to 3-year deal

The Carolina Panthers have agreed to a new three-year deal with defensive end Mario Addison.

“Mario has shown he is one of the best emerging pass rushers in the league and he deserves this contract,” general manager Dave Gettleman told the team website. “He consistently affects the quarterback, and we envision an increased role for him in our defense. He’s a pro in the way he approaches the game and brings an upbeat attitude to our locker room. We’re thrilled he will continue his career with the Panthers.”

The Panthers fill an immediate need at pass-rusher by re-signing Mario Addison, but they may still look to add an every-down defensive end.
Addison said he believes he can be an every down end, but will play whatever role the team wants.

“We met halfway in a good agreement that is a really fair deal for me,” Addison said. “I made my name here. I came here in 2012 and worked my way up.”
Elite Allen Robinson Jersey
Addison, 29, led the Panthers in sacks this past season with a career-high 9.5. He has 22 over the past three seasons, which also is ahead of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kawann Short (20.5) for the team lead during that span.

Satchel Paige Kids Jersey “In no way does this diminish our sorrow for Jerry Brown, his family and his mother,” Jones said late Sunday. “But Josh has a wish, he’d really like to have some success and financially help and take responsibility for Jerry Brown’s daughter. He’s told me that every time I’ve talked to him on the phone. This just within the last six or seven times we talked.

While the return for Brent is two weeks earlier than the original conditions set forth in a suspension announced by Roger Goodell, the NFL reportedly agreed to an adjustment to the terms of his 10-game suspension. Still, Brent won’t be eligible to play for the Cowboys until Nov. 23 against the New York Giants.

A seventh-round selection in the 2010 NFL Supplemental Draft, Brent played in 39 games at defensive tackle during his three seasons with the Cowboys, starting five games in his final season in 2012 before the fatal incident ended his year.

Is early retirement an option for Jay Cutler?

What is Jay Cutler’s football future if the Chicago Bears are unsuccessful in their quest to trade the veteran quarterback leading up to the new league year on March 9?

If he is left without an attractive home once the offseason’s game of quarterback musical chairs comes to a close, it’s not inconceivable that Cutler will opt for early retirement.

Interestingly enough, it has become a pseudo-pitfall for head coaches in recent years. Intra-staff takeovers in Jacksonville and Tennessee over the last two seasons have led to permanent gigs for Doug Marrone and Mike Mularkey. Lynn, who was promoted to offensive coordinator after a staff firing earlier this season, was also elevated to head coach upon Rex Ryan’s dismissal in December and heavily considered for the Buffalo Bills opening.

Owners making these decisions are starting to understand the value of consistency and instead of expensive, broad searches elsewhere to find a replacement head coach are turning to tenured coordinators or former head coaches on their own staff.

“I’ve had people ask me why I’d want to bring two head coaches to the staff, guys who have been there and done it who may want to be in your shoes,” Lynn said.

Of course, this is not the main reason Lynn should be concerned. In a piece I did last month about the turbulent first few months of a first-time head coach, one of the aspects of the job that stuck out was the need to assert yourself against competing voices. A coaching room is full of diverse experiences and Lynn will be competing to ensure his opinions stand above those of men who have held the job before.

Williams¡¯ movement skills are something Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster has noticed.

“When you think of a 3-4 defense typically you think of a big two gap player,” Webster said. “It¡¯s rare to find players that can do that; play one gap, penetrate and get up the field and rush the passer. It¡¯s hard to find a guy that can block and be a receiver. When you have guy like Leonard who can do both that¡¯s something special.”

For a defensive lineman, being special means getting picked high in the draft. And at the top of the draft there are plenty of teams looking for a special talent on defense.

“At the end of the day, this is the NFL and this has been a dream of mine for a long time and I want to play for any team that takes me,” Williams said. “But if it comes down to it, I want to go as high as possible and that comes down to Tampa Bay and Tennessee.”
Kevin Shattenkirk Kids Jersey
Williams¡¯ ascent to being in the NFL, let alone the top pick, has been a rapid one. He didn¡¯t start playing football until his freshman year in high school and couldn¡¯t play Pop Warner because he was 6-foot and 220 pounds at 12. Williams said it wasn¡¯t until his sophomore season at Mainland High School in Florida that he knew football may be in his future.

From there, he was recruited to Southern California by former Trojans recruiting ace Ed Orgeron. At USC Williams became a stalwart on the defensive line thanks to his ability to move around the line. Moving around in Southern Cal¡¯s 3-4 defense is what Williams preferred.

Jrue Holiday Kids Jersey “It was more fun to create matchups and go up against some weaker opponents once in a while,” Williams said. “When the coaches switched it up for me, I liked it.”

The defensive lineman and linebackers are scheduled to get their medical exams and measurements

“What’s your assessment of the Golden State Warriors’ center personnel? Do you think Zaza Pachulia is proving to be a good fit? Is JaVale McGee showing true starter potential or is he still too prone to defensive mistakes?” — Alan Reder

Tyreke Evans Youth Jersey After his slow start, it seems like Pachulia has been about what we expected: an efficient scorer who can benefit from the talent around him, an excellent playmaker from the high post and a solid defensive rebounder. There might be some playoff matchups that are problematic, but for the most part he’s a solid starter.
Ibraheim Campbell Youth Jersey
He notes that playing corner has helped him understand how to be a more effective receiver, but as Richard Sherman has noted many times during his career, that added understanding of nuance goes both ways.

Playing corner “helps me just as far as knowing what a corner wants to do,” he told media members gathered around a his table at Lucas Oil Stadium. “Knowing what they’re thinking as far as where I line up, as far as leverage, as far as when I get an inside release, and outside release, what routes are already in their head, eliminating things like that. I try to do things like that to manipulate how I run it. If I get an outside release, I’ll probably try to make an in-route, because the eyes on that are really different. Just try to manipulate as much as I can.”

The defensive lineman and linebackers are scheduled to get their medical exams and measurements, and also are required to meet with the media and continue interviewing with interested teams. The defensive backs finally arrive in Indianapolis on Friday, and shortly afterwards will go through the registration and orientation process on their first day at the combine.
