Von Miller endorses Kirk Cousins to the Broncos

  Von Miller endorses Kirk Cousins to the Broncos Pro Bowl quarterback Kirk Cousins will be looking for a new city to call home after the Washington Redskins traded for fellow Pro Bowler Alex Smith on Tuesday evening. To say that the market for Cousins’ services won’t be limited would be an understatement. As many as ashalf dozen teams could vie to sign the franchise signal-caller, likely signifying that he’ll become the highest-paid player in the NFL.Among those expected to show interest, the Denver Broncos’ current quarterback situation is an absolute mess. It’s in this that former Super Bowl MVP Von Miller is full-throated in his support of the team signing Cousins.

In 2017, six rookie quarterbacks started at least one game in the NFL. Most of them had a rather rough season to start off their NFL careers . Each guy is in a different situation and that plays a part in whether they fail or succeed.

Once you have a quarterback , you can begin to assemble your team and position them for a chance to win. Before Jimmy Garoppolo began starting the 49ers were 1-10. Once Jimmy G came on, they convincingly won all five of their last games on the way to a 6-10 finish.

2 women die while digging for clams on Washington beaches

  2 women die while digging for clams on Washington beaches Two women died digging for clams along the Washington coast Friday in separate incidents that occurred after they were caught in rough surf, officials said. The Pacific County Sheriff's Office wrote on Facebook the women were reported missing around 9 p.m., roughly four minutes apart, from two beaches in Pacific County, located in the southwest part of the state."These incidents serve as a tragic reminder that one must always be vigilant of the powerful surf and waves that are often present on our ocean beaches," Sheriff Scott Johnson said.

In trying to figure out whether a redshirt year actually helps a rookie quarterback , I sorted each of them by the combined Pro-Football-Reference Approximate Value they had in their second and third seasons. The goal was to see whether most of the better quarterbacks in Years 2 and 3 started a

By combining their game totals (only counting games in which they threw at least two passes), we can figure out how valuable they were in Year 1 of their careers . First-round rookie quarterbacks have never been more valuable.

In 2017, six rookie quarterbacks started at least one game in the NFL. Most of them had a rather rough season to start off their NFL careers. Each guy is in a different situation and that plays a part in whether they fail or succeed.

Mitchell Trubisky, Chicago Bears

Trubisky was the second overall pick in the draft after the Bears moved up one spot to take him. After the first four games of Mike Glennon playing like he was mistakenly paid $45 million, the Bears moved on to the future of their franchise. Trubisky didn't play great but he wasn't necessarily bad either. In the 12 games he started, he completed 59.4% of his passes with 2,193 yards, 7 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He didn't have much help from his receiving corps where his best wideout was Kendall Wright. His tight end, Zach Miller, also went down with a season-ending injury just 4 games into their time on the field together. Overall, Trubisky seems like he is going to be a solid starter in the league that the Bears can win with as long as the right pieces are around him.

New details emerge regarding ongoing Colin Kaepernick collusion case

  New details emerge regarding ongoing Colin Kaepernick collusion case The Colin Kaepernick collusion case against NFL owners is still in process. Now we have an idea about where things stand, and where they are headed, thanks to a new report by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Per the report, Kaepernick’s attorneys and the league recently exchanged almost 100,000 documents.“As part of the discovery process, Kaepernick’s lawyers sought electronic communications (texts, emails, etc.

The 2018 NFL first round rookie quarterbacks . Tight end David Njoku also had a decent rookie season with four touchdowns. When it comes to Both Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell have averaged over four yards per carry in their careers , and with a healthy offensive line, they can continue that.

That sounds good in isolation, but it puts him near the bottom of all NFL starting quarterbacks not constrained by a slotted rookie deal. 68 responses to “The 2018 starting quarterbacks , ranked by APY”. Not bad for a guy with four career starts . Thats silly. No one is going to pay him that.

Mahomes was taken 10th overall, where the Buffalo Bills were originally supposed to pick. A trade with the Bills allowed the Chiefs to move up and draft their guy for the future. Mahomes undoubtedly had the best pure arm talent in that draft and he showed flashes in the preseason and in his one regular season start. In that start he completed just under 63% of his passes for 284 yards and an interception. Now that the Chiefs former starter, Alex Smith, has been traded to the Washington Redskins the job is Mahomes for years to come.

Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans

Watson was the most impressive of the rookie quarterbacks before his season was unfortunately cut short by a torn ACL. He was taken 12th overall after the Cleveland Browns traded out of the spot for the Texans to move up and take their guy. In the seven games Watson played for the Texans, he completed just under 62% of his passes for 1,699 yards, 19 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Watson was in consideration for Offensive Rookie of the Year despite playing just half of the season. Hopefully Watson can make a quick and full recovery to start training camp as the starter heading into 2018.

Vikings hire Eagles QB coach John DeFilippo to run offense

  Vikings hire Eagles QB coach John DeFilippo to run offense The Minnesota Vikings have hired Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo as their offensive coordinator. DeFilippo replaces Pat Shurmur, who became head coach of the New York Giants. The 39-year-old DeFilippo spent two seasons with the Eagles after one year as offensive coordinator in Cleveland.

Playing for the Browns with the expectation to win is a hard-fought challenge. Their roster is extremely young and inexperienced at the NFL level. Kizer is one of those guys who fit that mold and it showed in 2017. Kizer was thrown into the fire the first week of the season and it was all downhill from there. He completed just 53.6% of his passes for 2,894 yards, 11 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. Kizer was the second-leading rusher on his team with 417 yards and his leading running back only had 853 yards on the season. He also lead his team in rushing touchdowns with 5. His leading receiver was Duke Johnson who had 74 catches on the year. Seth DeValve was the second leading receiver with 33 receptions. Kizer was thrown under the bus from the beginning and he wasn't ready to be a starter in the NFL. There is a good chance that Kizer will be taking a back seat to a rookie quarterback. The Browns hold the first and fourth overall picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Beathard (3) fumbles as he is hit by the Cowboys' Demarcus Lawrence in Santa Clara, Calif., on Oct. 22. The Cowboys won 40-10.

Beathard appeared in six games for the 49ers. Following the 49ers trade with the New England Patriots, Bethard bridged the gap to give Jimmy Garoppolo some time to learn the offense before he took snaps for the team. Beathard completed just under 55% of his passes for 1,430 yards, 4 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. With Garoppolo signing a 5-year extension, Beathard may be able to develop into a solid backup quarterback in the NFL.

Garoppolo, 49ers connect, completing long-term record deal

  Garoppolo, 49ers connect, completing long-term record deal Jimmy Garoppolo could have waited and cashed in even more than he did after other quarterbacks re-set the market. The San Francisco 49ers could have used a franchise tag instead of making a long-term commitment to make sure Garoppolo was worth a hefty investment after only seven NFL starts.But both sides wanted this resolved quickly, and did so with a contract that will pay Garoppolo a record $27.5 million per season over the next five years."This is where I want to be, honestly," Garoppolo said at a news conference Friday. "I wanted to get this deal done as fast as possible.

Nathan Peterman, Buffalo Bills

Peterman got the call in Week 11 after showing some promise towards the end of the week 10 blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints. In the first half of his first career start against the Los Angeles Chargers, Peterman managed to throw 5 interceptions and was pulled in the middle of the game. The expectations for him were far too high. Fans wanted to see a diamond in the rough when in reality he may not even turn into a reliable backup. Because of an injury to Tyrod Taylor, Peterman was forced to start in a blizzard against the Indianapolis Colts. He threw the ball just 10 times, completing 5 of them for 57 yards and a touchdown. Ideally he can turn into a reliable backup.
