Delanie Walker’s Dynasty Value Remains High

Source: Delanie Walker: Age factored into two-year deal – Titan Insider Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker said his age probably cost him some money on the contract extension he agreed to on Friday. But he also admitted that because he has been a late bloomer as a pass receiver, there isn’t as much tread off his tires as there might be for a typical NFL player his age. Walker will turn 32 in August, and agreed to a reported $14.7 million extension over two years to stay with the Titans. He first signed with the Titans in 2013 after…...

How Worried Are We About Melvin Gordon’s Knee?

Source: Melvin Gordon recovers from microfracture surgery | SanDiegoUnionTribune.com The Chargers running back participated in on-field drills Monday. Afterward, he acknowledged he is not yet 100 percent, still working back from a January knee procedure. Sources said that Gordon underwent microfracture surgery and was given a recovery timetable of four to six months.That phrase, microfracture surgery, carries an ominous connotation.While some past cases warrant the association, a high concern level about Gordon’s short- and long-term recovery is not sensed here. He expects to practice without limitation well before the start of training camp in late July. Even after I’d heard…...

Will Fuller and the Texans Offense

Source: 2016 NFL Draft grades: Texans, Jaguars, Redskins head ‘A’ teams – NFL.com Hats off to Rick Smith and Bill O’Brien for supplying their new franchise quarterback (free-agent addition Brock Osweiler) with enough weapons for him to succeed as a playmaker. The Texans upgraded their speed and big-play potential on the perimeter with the additions of Will Fuller and Braxton Miller. Each pass catcher displays the burst and acceleration to run past defenders on vertical routes, yet both are also crafty catch-and-run specialists capable of turning short passes into big gains. Tyler Ervin gives the team another explosive weapon out…...

C.J. Prosise

Seahawks Fell in Love With Prosise’s Receiving Ability

Source: Seattle Seahawks banking on C.J. Prosise to make offense more dynamic – Seattle Seahawks Blog- ESPN “He is a guy that I fell in love with because when I went back and watched him play at receiver, he ran all of the routes,” Carroll said. “He was a regular receiver. He had 50 targets or something two years ago. He’s a natural football player at that position that became a running back. That’s really unusual that happens like that and that he would be so dynamic as a player at the running back spot.” So going into this draft…...

Paxton Lynch Could Start Sooner Rather Than Later

Source: John Elway hints that Paxton Lynch could start sooner than expected | FOX Sports Denver traded up to draft Lynch with the 26th pick in the first round last week, but the former Memphis Tigers QB was viewed by most to be at least a year away. On Friday, however, Elway gave strong indications that timeline could be much shorter while speaking with Denver Sports 760.”Is that going to happen tomorrow? Probably not, but you never know when it can happen,” Elway said. “We think he’s going to be ready quicker than a lot of people think.” Paxton Lynch…...

Unsurprisingly, NFL GMs Engage in Revisionist History

From the San Francisco Chronicle, where Trent Baalke discusses the idea of drafting for need, versus sticking to the board: “Well, you can’t force it,” Baalke said on KNBR. “You really can’t. We tried that once and that didn’t work as well as we had hoped. The board is the board.” The 49ers selected [A.J.] Jenkins with the No. 30 pick because they desperately needed a deep-threat wideout. As a result, they shocked even Jenkins (“I had no idea I was going to go this early,” he said on draft night) by selecting him in the first round. * (Worth…...

Cowboys Sign Explosive Freak Free Agent Wide Receiver

From Twitter: At Florida’s pro day, Jacksonville Univ WR Andy Jones (1 of Cowboys UDFA signees) had 41.5-inch vertical jump, 11.1 in broad and ran 4.5 40. — Brandon George (@DMN_George) May 5, 2016 Jones also weighed in at 217 pounds per NFL Draft Scout. Just to give you some sense of how explosive those numbers make Jones, he would be pretty close to Allen Robinson’s pro day measurements. Jones played at FCS Jacksonville University where he averaged just under 90 yards per game receiving last year. I mean it’s really probably pointless to talk about his production numbers considering…...
