Texans expect J.J. Watt, Deshaun Watson to be ready for training camp
The Texans may have been the unluckiest team in the league on the injury front last year, but there’s good news on injuries this year.
Houston lost both their breakout star quarterback Deshaun Watson and their three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt to season-ending injuries last season, but both of them are expected to be ready to go for the start of training camp. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Houston does not anticipate putting either player on the physically unable to perform list.
And you’ll see it with Indy and new coach Frank Reich too. All that makes sense, since Kansas City (Nagy) and Philly (Reich, DeFilippo) ran more RPOs, per Pro Football Focus’ numbers, than anyone else in the league, and all these guys, including Eagles coach Doug Pederson, branch off the Andy Reid coaching tree. What’s more interesting? As I’ve heard it, coaches all over the NFL are tapping into their connections in college football to learn more about RPO concepts, both in an effort to learn to implement them (with the main concern being protecting your quarterback) and defend against them.
Gurley knows well that success in one season doesn’t guarantee anything the next year. He ran for 1,106 yards while averaging 4.8 yards per carry in 13 games as a rookie, but dropped to 885 yards and 3.2 yards per carry in 16 2016 games. Anything Gurley does to avoid a similar drop will be much appreciated by the Rams.
The Miami Dolphins are rewarding cornerback Bobby McCain after he set multiple career highs in 2017. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dolphins made McCain the highest-paid nickel cornerback in football on Friday by giving him a four-year, $27 million extension with $13 million guaranteed.
That seems like a lot of money for the Dolphins to commit to a nickel cornerback. Over the past year, guys like Richard Sherman, Prince Amukamara, and Joe Haden have signed contracts worth roughly $27 million, per Spotrac. But as NFL offenses increasingly operate out of three-receiver sets, the need for nickel cornerbacks has increased dramatically. According to Pro Football Focus, offenses used 11 personnel (one back, one tight end, three receivers) 58 percent of the time during the 2017 season.

Doug Baldwin calls President Trump an idiot Doug Baldwin said Wednesday he was not surprised by the NFL’s new national anthem policy. A day later, the Seahawks receiver expressed even less surprise at President Trump’s suggestion that those who refuse to stand for the national anthem maybe shouldn’t be in the country. He’s an idiot, […]
Addition of veteran tackle raises question about Bryan Bulaga’s timeline The Packers gave themselves some cover yesterday, when they signed a functional starting-caliber right tackle.

Kevin White: I believe in myself even if Bears don’t The Bears declined to exercise their fifth-year option on wide receiver Kevin White’s contract this offseason in a move that couldn’t have taken anyone by surprise.
