The Raiders have signed veteran cornerback Leon Hall. Agent Doug Hendrickson announced the agreement on Twitter and the team confirmed the news moments later via press release.
Lamar’s really fast, Alexander said. I don’t know if he’d have beat my time … He’d have been.01, he’d be right there. But he’s really fast, he’s really quick. It’d have been a good one.
It will have to wait until another day.
At the time of the incident, a protective order was issued to prevent Smith from having any contact with his accuser… which he allegedly violated before turning himself in last Friday.
Jackson told ESPN that he hoped to show teams that he could make every throw from under center, and co-offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway expressed optimism about Jackson’s ability.
You can cut his film and see him run, Galloway said. The thing for him was just to come out and show people that he could get the ball from under the center and his footwork was good, his three-step, five-step, seven-step drops, and deliver the ball.
Jackson told ESPN: No matter what you do in life, there’s going to always be naysayers.
If I was worried too much about it, I’d be worried about the wrong things. But I do use some of it as motivation. I can listen to all the people patting me on the back, or I can listen to the people saying I need to get better. I know I need to get better, or else there would be nobody saying that.
The 22-year-old Texas native has competed with Sam Darnold (USC), Josh Rosen (UCLA), Lamar Jackson (Louisville), Mason Rudolph (Oklahoma State) and Josh Allen (Wyoming) during the draft process as part of a loaded quarterback class.
He should come off the board in Round 1 when the draft takes place starting April 26 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. He could even land inside the top five if teams move up in search of their signal-callers of the future.
