Duron Carter made one-handed catch in CFL that will make Odell Beckham jealous

Duron Carter’s stint in the NFL didn’t last very long, but he’s doing his best to make it back into the league.

He’ll likely have the attention of scouts following a highlight-reel catch in Saturday’s game against Toronto. He was given a jump ball scenario in the endzone, and extended his arm out to make a ridiculous grab around his back. Just take a look for youself.

They’ve got a lot of speed. We have two really good, smart veteran safeties (in Glover Quin and Tavon Wilson) that help guys get lined up. Obviously, (Darius) Slay is doing a really good job at corner. Some young linebackers … the kid stepping in (Jarrad Davis) has been really impressive. J.D.’s not even just as a football player but as a human being, teammate, leader, he’s doing a great job putting the work in and is really dialed in at practice.

And the guys up front, man, they get off the ball. That’s what they do around here you hear our d-line coach (Kris Kocurek) screaming at them to get off the ball and they do. They’re doing a nice job with twisting, stunting, getting into the backfield and making some plays.

Your team was so clutch last year, coming from behind in the fourth quarter to win eight games. Can some of that confidence in being able to overcome adversity carry over to a new season?

We have a lot of confidence in ourselves and our coaching staff that we have a great plan and we’re gonna do the right thing, that we’ve got guys that can make those plays. But shoot, we’d love to be up by 10 points in the fourth quarter and be getting that ball to Ameer, Theo and Zach and running the clock out. That’s our goal — to be in a better position at the end of games.

Eric Decker is fitting in just fine with his new team.

Titans’ Marcus Mariota on new teammate Eric Decker: ‘He makes it easy’

After joining the Titans on a one-year deal last month, the wide receiver got his first opportunity to get on the field and work with third-year quarterback Marcus Mariota during Saturday’s opening practice of training camp.

The 58-year-old former Seahawks safety wanted to deliver a serious message for which he feels strongly.

Black lives do matter, he said. And all lives matter, too. But the carnage affecting young black men today, from random violence to police shootings across this nation, has to stop.

We’ve got to stand up as a country, as black Americans, and fight the good fight to protect our youth and our American constitutional right not to die while driving or walking the streets black in America.

It has to stop, and we can do it.

The lessons we learn in sports can help.

Easley does his part by running a youth flag football league to occupy the minds of children and keep them busy and out of trouble.

You occupy the mind, the body will follow, Easley said before his teleprompter went out to indicate his time was up, but his message was delivered and met with applause by those in attendance.

Cutler’s next contract, should he earn it, can be structured similarly to that of Alex Smith, a deal that allows the team to get out after the second year with minimal cap hit. This lies under the premise that Cutler can play well enough and stay healthy, but changing out Tannehill’s bloated deal with Cutler’s team-friendly, short-term solution could ease Miami’s 2018 cap concerns.

Plus, the Dolphins would need an established veteran to hold the fort while the team searches for a franchise quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft, one of the best classes in recent history.

Jerry Jones: Ezekiel Elliott met with NFL about investigation

Ezekiel Elliott has finally faced his demons.

After saying he expects the NFL to imminently announce its ruling, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones further elaborated by revealing the star running back has met with league officials in New York regarding his domestic violence allegation stemming from a 2016 incident.

They have had their hearing and they have had all of the responses, Jones said after Saturday’s training camp practice, via the team’s website. Everything’s in place to make a decision.

What are the strengths of Detroit’s running back-by-committee approach and what makes you optimistic that this group can help you and the Lions in 2017?

If we stay healthy we’re extremely talented. I think we were on our way to that at the beginning of last year. Ameer (Abdullah) had a great Week One, a great Week Two and then obviously had the (season-ending) injury. Theo (Riddick) did a really nice job the rest of the year with some of the other guys like Zach Zenner and Dwayne (Washington). If we can get the majority of the season with a full complement of the backs, it’s really gonna help us because they’re all really talented guys.

Why do you and your offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter have such a tight relationship?

That’s a blueprint the Cowboys have followed, flanking Elliott with Morris and Darren McFadden. The Bills spelled McCoy with Mike Gillislee. It’s also the plan whoever winds up courting Bell in 2018 should follow as well; the tailback-by-committee plan isn’t dead, but it’s changed into a much more favorable split for star runners.

Jets rookie Jamal Adams: Football field would be ‘perfect place to die’

As football in general and the NFL specifically comes under increasing scrutiny for its long-term health impacts on players, a Jets rookie’s comments Monday showed that some players are simply willing to take the risk.

Enunwa sustained the injury during drills when he dropped a pass from quarterback Christian Hackenberg and fell to the turf face-first, even though he was untouched.

He hit his head or hit his neck and something went wrong when he fell,” Bowles said, via ESPN. I’ll see the severity of it when I go inside.”

Enunwa was projected to be New York’s No. 1 wideout after the team cut Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall earlier this offseason, though Bowles is optimistic the team will manage regardless of the outcome once Enunwa is further examined.

We’ll see what happens first,” Bowles said. If we have to lose him, we’ll adjust from there. But we’ve got young guys coming on. We’ll see what the results are first and we’ll go from there.”

Enunwa, 25, was selected by the Jets in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He has recorded 1,172 receiving yards on 80 catches through 28 games over the last two seasons with New York.

Signing him at $22 million per season would look like a bargain at this point. Instead, Cousins is going to make even more money, whether that’s in Washington or elsewhere. Former GM Scot McCloughan reportedly wanted a deal for Cousins and told people around the league that if he had full control, it would have happened in 2016. Yet at this point, Washington doesn’t seem like the best option for Cousins.

Another season of Cousins seems like a waste for Washington. Chances are low that he returns after the season, and it’s pointless for the team to have either not extended him or get something in return and move forward. The 2018 NFL draft class is expected to be filled with quarterback talent with the likes of Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Josh Rosen, and others.

Broncos QB competition turns ugly, if only for a day

First-year Broncos head coach Vance Joseph vows not to make a decision on his starting quarterback based on a one-day evaluation.

Good thing after his team’s first padded practice Sunday.

The Broncos defense had three interceptions against Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, and when Joseph was asked about their performance he minced no words.

Did I like what I saw? Not really, Joseph said (via the Denver Post). Both guys had issues today. I didn’t like what I saw today, honest. They both struggled today.

Maybe I’m itching a little more this offseason, Peterson said, via The Times-Picayune. Plus, I don’t know how they do things. If the starters go out there and play no matter what, then I’m buttoning up and I’m going. But when that time comes, we’ll talk a little more about it.

In his first year with New Orleans, Peterson is hoping to get in on the action early. Despite being hindered by another knee injury and forced to miss the majority of last season, the veteran rusher said he is fit and feels great physically as the team prepares for its first exhibition game against the Browns on Aug. 10.

I’m healthy, without a doubt, Peterson said. I’m not exactly where I want to be, but I’m working towards that and working extremely hard. In my mind, it’s just each day working on the little things that are going to make you better.

Peterson, 32, has led the NFL in rushing three times and earned MVP honors in 2012, but his production has declined recently due to his age and a number of knee injuries. He was limited to just 72 rushing yards in three games in his final year with the Vikings last season before being released March 9.

Jaguars’ Branden Albert, 32, announces retirement

Two-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Branden Albert, 32, has retired before playing a down for the Jaguars, the NFL team announced Monday morning.

After nine seasons playing in the National Football League, I have decided to retire from the game that has given me so much, Albert said, in part, in a statement. It’s been truly a blessing. I cherish all of the relationships and people I have encountered while playing in the NFL.

To commemorate the hardships they endured last season, Patriots owner Robert Kraft surprised the veteran quarterback and his family this offseason by giving Galynn a Super Bowl ring of her own.

He’s been so supportive of my family and certainly everything my mom went through and knowing first-hand how families deal with it, Brady said Friday, via ESPN. He was always asking, ‘How’s mom doing? How is she feeling?’ We didn’t know up until the very end whether she was going to make it to the Super Bowl. She was a big inspiration for me, and [Kraft] knew it. It was a great surprise to all of us when the ring showed up. She deserves it.

Brady cited personal family matters when turning down New England’s visit to the White House in April, and it was later reported he instead opted to spend time with his mother.

Tom Brady Sr. told The Boston Globe that Galynn wrapped up her cancer treatments that same month.

Devonta Freeman becomes NFL’s highest-paid RB

The Falcons will make Devonta Freeman the NFL’s highest-paid running back with a new five-year extension worth $41.25 million, the team confirmed Wednesday.

According to NFL media, Freeman will earn an annual average of $8.25 million. Currently, LeSean McCoy’s salary sits at $8 million per year, although Le’Veon Bell will make $12.12 million once he signs his franchise tender.

After a parole violation arrest warrant was issued Tuesday, Bowlen’s attorney Harvey Steinberg tried to get the warrant dismissed by claiming Bowlen was not aware his probation had begun. A Colorado judge on Friday denied the request for dismissal, the Denver Post reported.

Bowlen convicted in April of 2016 in a domestic violence case in Arapahoe County and was placed on probation for a 24-month period. When he was stopped Sunday in California for suspicion of DUI and driving over 100 mph, he failed to inform his parole officer he had even left the state.

That was just one of several parole violations, according to the Post.

Bowlen also did not report his arrest in California, had not reported to his probation officer since March 27, did not report for mandated community service, and had not enrolled in court-ordered domestic violence and drug and alcohol treatment programs.

He was released from custody in California on Monday after posting bond. The Post reported his bail in the Arapahoe County probation revocation was set at $1,287.50.

Julio Jones: I did NOT hire dive team to find lost earring

Julio Jones wants to set the record straight: He did not hire a dive team to find a $150,000 earring he lost while jet skiing on Lake Lanier earlier this week.

I didn’t hire anyone like a dive team, the wide receiver said at Falcons training camp Saturday, per ESPN . I did not do that. It was insured. I was fine. I didn’t get thrown off anything. I jumped off the Jet Ski. So, let’s clear it up.

Jones’ statement doesn’t exactly contradict a report by Atlanta’s WXIA-NBC that said a jeweler friend of Jones not necessarily Jones himself paid a dive team $500 to try to locate the earring.

Harsh, but he’s not wrong. Practicing against a quarterback like Brees every day will only help you improve.

As for Bortles, he’s got a ways to go before he’s improved. Although Jaguars coach Doug Marrone seemed pleased with how his quarterback has progressed, even just a day after his terrible practice.

I thought he bounced back well today, which is something that you obviously want to do. I think the first two days there were some good things he was doing out there, Marrone said Monday. I think on that third day, we put in third down that day, from a standpoint of coverages, and I think it’s what we talked about before, making good decisions.

Marrone also added the quarterback needs to make sure the ball doesn’t go to the other team.

Good strategy.

Watch: Myles Garrett beats future hall-of-famer Joe Thomas off the edge

Browns tackle Joe Thomas has been selected to the Pro Bowl all 10 seasons in the NFL and is an eight-time All-Pro.

But on one play Wednesday in training camp, Browns No. 1 draft pick Myles Garrett made Thomas look remarkably average, running right around him on an edge rush to pressure quarterback Cody Kessler.

Garrett got about as easy a QB pressure as you can get and it came against a man whom NFL players voted the No. 25 best player in the league and the league’s best tackle.

Garrett later told reporters that he tried unsucessfully to bull rush Thomas once, and the veteran whispered Nice try.

Garrett appreciates the opportunity to go against Thomas.

That’s going against one of the world’s best, Garrett said (via ClevelandBrowns.com). You’re going to get better each day by doing that.

The Patriots led 28-24 when Russell Wilson’s wizardry in the pocket and Jermaine Kearse’s circus catch along the sideline brought a flood of unpleasant Super Bowl XLII and XLVI memories to the minds of every fan in New England.

Marshawn Lynch carried the ball to the 1-yard line on the very next play … and then didn’t touch the ball again. Instead, Pete Carroll’s pick-play quick-slant call ended as poorly as it could have, making Malcolm Butler, a former undrafted free agent, a household name in the process.

Just getting to that point, however, was a testament to Brady’s skill. The Patriots trailed 24-14 with less than nine minutes to play before the veteran passer pulled off an improbable comeback. Butler’s heroic effort was just the icing on the cake.

Marvin Lewis absent from Bengals camp dealing with ‘minor health issue’

Marvin Lewis was not present at the Bengals’ practice session Tuesday and the team later said he is dealing with an unspecified health concern.

Coach Marvin Lewis will be taking time away from the team to focus on a minor health issue, a statement issued Tuesday afternoon read. He will be back as soon as possible, which could be today or later this week.

The Cincinnati Enquirer noted earlier in the day that Lewis appeared to be favoring a leg after Monday’s practice. NFL Media reported later Tuesday that Lewis is dealing with a blood clot in his ankle.

Lewis, 58, is beginning his 15th season at the helm in Cincinnati, making him the NFL’s second-longest-tenured coach behind Bill Belichick in New England.

Special teams coordinator Darrin Simmons is running practices in Lewis’ absence. The Bengals open their preseason schedule Friday at home against the Buccaneers.

Odell Beckham Jr. was at The Opening this past weekend in Oregon, the biggest recruiting camp in the country for college football prospects. It’s run by Nike, so the brand’s biggest NFL athlete made an appearance.

But an OBJ appearance at a camp full of up-and-coming football players isn’t typical. Beckham’s more like a rockstar.

A video he posted on his Instagram shows how. He arrives at the camp — where the young prospects are overjoyed — and just dances with the dumbfounded athletes.
