Bengals WR A.J. Green admits to being frustrated but says he doesn't want to be traded

  Bengals WR A.J. Green admits to being frustrated but says he doesn't want to be traded A.J. Green is off to the slowest start to his career, but the wide receiver says he isn't looking for a trade away from the Cincinnati Bengals.“Still working my way in. Still trying to find my way in and stuff in this new offense,” Green said. “Every week it’s going to be trying to get better each week.

You’d be hard-pressed to find another NFL running back who has racked up highlights more in the past two years than Tennessee Titans star Derrick Henry.

For starters, Henry, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound tower who combines his rare size with 4.5 sprinter speed, rarely gets caught from behind. That alone is a wonder, one people gawked at on social media when he broke his 94-yard run against the Texans two weeks ago, for instance, or his 99-yard run against the Jaguars last season.

Yet, it’s the way Henry uses his 33-inch arms — which are longer than some linemen — that has really catapulted him into the consciousness of football fans everywhere. His powerful stiff arm, which he doles out regularly and often devastatingly, is the best in the NFL, and when he catches defenders just right — like he did to Earl Thomas last postseason and, more recently, Josh Norman — whoo boy do those guys have a hard time living it down.

Report: Dez Bryant likely to join Ravens’ practice squad

  Report: Dez Bryant likely to join Ravens’ practice squad Bryant worked out for Baltimore in the offseason, so the Ravens likely know what they’re getting already. The 31-year-old wide receiver has not played in the NFL since 2017. The practice squad stint is likely meant to get him into game shape. The Ravens’ interest in him goes back nearly three years, and they’ve looked into signing him multiple times. It appears to be finally happening. © Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Will Dez Bryant at long last make his return to the NFL? Once considered one of the NFL’s elite wide receivers, Bryant has 73 career touchdown catches.

“I had long arms and it came natural to me, and I’ve been using it since I was a kid. That’s been my go-to ever since I started playing football,” said Henry, who recently spoke to Yahoo Sports on behalf of Old Spice.

Now, as one of 48 Pro Football Hall of Fame voters scattered throughout the country, I often think about players’ individual legacies when watching games. I can’t help myself.

I watch DK Metcalf run and catch like Terrell Owens and think, “Hmm — he’s definitely talented enough to get there one day. Plus he has Russ!” even though he hasn’t even played two seasons.

Or I watch Patrick Mahomes and realize he could go down as the greatest NFL player of all time, even though Tom Brady has six rings to his one.

Like I said, I can’t help myself. But my heart’s in the right place!

Giants activate Sterling Shepard from IR

  Giants activate Sterling Shepard from IR Shepard has been out since Week 2 because of turf toe. Should Darius Slayton be given the green light after getting in two limited practices this week, Daniel Jones‘ starting wideouts — Shepard, Slayton and Golden Tate — will be in uniform together for just the second game this season. Tate missed Week 1 and Shepard left Big Blue’s Week 2 game. Slayton left the team’s Week 6 win but remains a decent bet to play Thursday night. Shepard has been the least available of the Giants receivers in the team’s post-Odell Beckham Jr. era. He missed six games last season because of two separate concussions.

He paused, wishing he had not mentioned that fact. It was slip of tongue, one of a few he ever made , due to peculiar pressure of situation. He tried to orient himself by : the stars; but it was a cloudy night and a few stars that were visible did not announce any constellation that he could recognize.

So bear with me here, people, because in the only item in this week’s “Things I Noticed” column, I explore how Henry can get in the Hall, and how his devastating stiff arm — which I notice each and every week — is already a nice feather in his cap, one that could help his cause down the road.

Derrick Henry is a highlight waiting to happen

In addition to racking up a swell of rushing yards and touchdowns, practically every Hall of Fame runner, from Jim Brown to Barry Sanders to Emmitt Smith to Walter Payton, also had a vast array of memorable runs, ones that fans openly gawked at in wonder.

If Twitter was around for any of those guys, they would have trended many times.

Just like Henry has.

Now, I’m writing all of this with one enormous caveat, and it’s this: The 26-year-old Henry has only 4,496 career rushing yards. He also has two 1,000-yard seasons under his belt, and probably needs about five or six more of those to legitimately get into this conversation.

Antonio Brown can earn incentives only if Bucs make playoffs?

  Antonio Brown can earn incentives only if Bucs make playoffs? Antonio Brown signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week that includes both individual and team incentives, but the wide receiver cannot earn one without the other. © Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports More details of Antonio Brown's Bucs contract have been revealed. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that the maximum value of Brown’s contract with Tampa Bay is $2.5 million. Brown will earn around $1 million in base salary and roster bonuses. He gets a $750,000 bonus if the Buccaneers win the Super Bowl and can earn three $250,000 bonuses for receptions, yardage and touchdowns.

That’s no guarantee because big backs traditionally age poorly.

But … what if Henry doesn’t?

We’ve never really seen a back this big and this fast before. What if he’s a freaky outlier, one who remains productive past the age of 30, ends up approaching the magical 12,000-yard threshold that has essentially guaranteed Hall of Fame entry for running backs and, along the way, he racks up more gif-able stiff arms and highlights?

Approaching 12,000 yards but not cracking it wouldn’t guarantee induction. Fifteen retired backs, for instance, have finished their careers with between 10,000 to 11,999 rushing yards, and only two, O.J. Simpson and John Riggins, made the Hall.

But if Henry’s career goes the way I just laid out — a big but not insurmountable if — I’d argue that on a purely visceral level, Henry’s uniqueness as a runner will merit strong Hall consideration.

Hell, his stiff arm is already one of the best of his generation, one that we’ll compare to big backs of the future. I broke it down in the latest episode of the original Yahoo Sports series “Check the Tape,” which you can watch atop this page.

“I definitely appreciate the things you just said, and as a player, I mean, everybody has that dream to be recognized for all the hard work they put into this game from the first time stepping on the field until you’re done playing,” Henry told me. “There’s so many greats that are in the Hall of Fame and hopefully one day, I’ll be able to put my name with those guys.”

Henry quickly offered a caveat of his own.

“I don’t think I’m anywhere close,” he added. “I’ll continue to work to hopefully one day have the opportunity.”

What would help Derrick Henry’s Hall of Fame case?

An MVP award would help Henry’s cause. Of the 14 retired running backs who have won it, all but two — Shaun Alexander, who has a good case to get in, and Larry Brown — have gotten into the Hall.

Henry currently leads the NFL in rushing yards (663) and rushing touchdowns (seven) for the 5-1 Titans. He is the centerpiece of a good offense, one of the few running backs who can claim that distinction these days. That’s telling considering how the NFL is more pass-centric now and a running back hasn’t won the award since Adrian Peterson in 2012.

“I’m just trying to block out the noise,” said Henry, who reiterated his recent claim that Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill deserves to be in the MVP conversation. “His leadership, the way he leads each and every day. Everybody in this building trusts him.”

Yet neutral observers often acknowledge that Tannehill often thrives off play-action, which is set up because of how terrified defenses are of Henry and the devastating, HOF stiff arms he can deliver.

Surprisingly, he doesn’t have a favorite stiff arm from his five-year career.

“When I’m done playing, we can look at all the stiff arms and pick and choose one,” Henry said.

By then, he might have to because if he proves to be an outlier for big backs, there’s a reasonable chance he’ll be asked that question numerous times before ultimately donning a gold jacket in Canton.

From Pops to President-Elect! See Joe Biden's Sweetest Family Pics .
Pops is the President-elect! Joe Biden — who won the 46th presidential election in November 2020 — has shared many sweet moments with his family members along the course of his political career. The former Vice President wed Neilia Hunter in August 1966, and they welcomed three children together — Joseph “Beau,” Robert Hunter and Naomi. The Pennsylvania native had his wife and kids’ support when he ran for senator in Delaware in 1972, but Neilia and their youngest daughter died one month after his win in a car accident that left both of his sons injured. While Joe was tempted to resign from his position and care for Beau and Hunter, Senate majority leader Mike Mansfield “would not give up” on the Syracuse University grad. “He kept calling to check on me,” Joe recalled in his 2007 Promises to Keep memoir. “He reminded me that he had put me on the Democratic Steering Committee, the group that chose the committee selections, which was unheard of for a freshman senator at that time. There was a fight brewing over a new slot on Finance, and he needed my help. I really did not care. He was trying so hard to engage me in something outside that hospital room.” The politician was eventually convinced and commuted home from Washington, D.C., every day to see his sons. He remarried in June 1977, marrying Jill Biden (née Jacobs). The couple are the parents of daughter Ashley. While serving in the Senate, the Promise Me, Dad author ran for president in 1988 and 2008.
