Raiders Sign CB Leon Hall

Posted on by

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.patriots_094-223x223

New England has to have some urgency when it comes to managing the depth at the quarterback position.

The Jets got rid of Muhammad Wilkerson but let Suh use them as his safety school, and they traded up from sixth to third in the draft after identifying six or seven players they liked in this year’s class. (Think about it…) They aren’t so much playing low-risk football as they are chasing their tails like a golden retriever at a fireworks display, so let’s leave them out of this.

While many teams are eager to build locker rooms where everyone can harmoniously hope for a wild-card berth, teams aside from the Rams have figured out that big rewards require real risks.

Even with Brady on top of his game, the Patriots have not shied away from investing capital in a quarterback throughout the years: In 2014, the team selected Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round; in 2008, 2011 and 2016, it used third-round picks to bring Kevin O’Connell, Ryan Mallett and Jacoby Brissett on board. All this shows that New England is well aware of the fragility of the most important position on the field. Part of why the networks pay us the funding they do, Kraft said at the owners meetings this week. and the reason this is the best entertainment product in America, is you don’t know – one play can change a whole season. One play with one person. To do a good job managing an NFL franchise, we’ve always said understanding quality depth management, that’s our business. With the end nearing for the greatest quarterback to ever step on the gridiron, New England has to have some urgency when it comes to managing the depth at the quarterback position.

A handful of international athletes who would like to see if they have what it takes to make it in the NFL went to Tampa to work out in front of scouts last weekend, and one athlete stood out: Jordan Mailata. Mailata is a 20-year-old, 6-foot-8, 346-pound Samoan rugby player who currently competes for a team in Sydney, Australia, and he showed that he has the natural athleticism to play at the NFL level.patriots_147-223x223

Darren Fells, the third part of the rotation, reportedly agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal with the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.

It’s not ideal, Tobin said at the Annual League Meeting this week, per The Cincinnati Enquirer. The situation he has put us in is not ideal. We are a player-oriented business. Players that can make a difference are important and we recognize that. The more he’s not available to us the more it hurts us.

Unless it’s reduced or overturned on appeal, Burfict will miss the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. It’s the third suspension of Burfict’s career. If the punishment sticks, the seventh-year defender will have missed a total of 10 games due to suspension while playing in 36 of a possible 64 regular-season tilts since 2014.

It’s not ideal when a guy is not available to us and we recognize that, but our over-riding thought is how to field the best football team we can possibly field.

Unless it becomes a decision rooted in finances, Burfict’s place on the Bengals doesn’t appear to be in danger based on what Tobin and Lewis are saying. Whether his tenure with the team can survive another suspension beyond the one slated for September remains to be seen.

Ebron’s departure leaves the Lions short-staffed at tight end. Michael Roberts, the second-year pro out of Toledo, is the only player on the roster who saw meaningful snaps last season. As a rookie, he was primarily asked to focus on blocking and finished the year with four receptions.

And a thin market has already seen some of the top options reach agreements. Jimmy Graham is headed to Green Bay for a three-year contract, and Trey Burton, who many speculated would draw interest from the Lions if they moved on from Ebron, agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with the Chicago Bears.jets_053
