Chiefs' Jeremy Maclin off to best start ever with Alex Smith
Maclin came to Kansas City from Philadelphia in the offseason, and his communication with Smith has been more than either player expected.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been off to a better start with a particular quarterback in my life,” Maclin said, per KCChiefs.com.
Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, like head coach Andy Reid, brought the Philadelphia offense to Kansas City, which has helped Maclin's transition.
“He’s only a couple years removed from our system,” Pederson said. “We’ve changed some things since he’s been in the offense, but he’s such a smart, savvy, veteran guy that he’s picked up on what we’re doing really fast. He and Alex have sort of developed that continuity right away.”
Redskins' David Amerson looks to win back starting job
After a sub-par 2014 season,
Amerson lost the job after a season in which he indecisive and lacked aggression, he admitted to the Washington Post. Amerson didn't record an interception and had just seven pass breakups.
“At the end of the day, that’s all it comes down to: just making plays. That’s the thing I felt like I was missing last year: being that big play-maker, game-changer,” Amerson said. “I basically had been that all my life, but it was different for me last year. It was unusual for me. So I need to get back into my groove and just find my swag. … Like I said, I’ve been that all my life, and always had that – I wouldn’t call it a gambling type of mentality – but knowing when to go and make that play, when to step up. It’s something I think a lot of people naturally have in them, and knowing when to bring it out. I just have to have that mindset.”
QB Russell Wilson reiterates desire to stay with Seahawks
"The rest will work out. The contract will work itself out. I'm excited about it and excited to hopefully be a Seattle Seahawk for a really, really long time," Wilson said during a football camp. "So, that's the goal."
Wilson is slated to play out the final year of his rookie contract in 2015, making $1.54 million, a figure wildly below market value for a player who has been to back-to-back Super Bowls.
Seahawks DE Michael Bennett threatens to hold out
Bennett attended the mandatory minicamp last week, which indicated he would be fine for training camp. But he told KHON2 that he might consider holding out in an attempt to get a new contract and remain in Hawaii.
Report: Cowboys finally meet with agents for WR Dez Bryant
Bryant was slapped with the franchise tag this offseason and has declined to sign the $13 million tender. He is seeking a long-term deal and has threatened to sit out the regular season opener if no such contract has been completed. If they cannot come to terms, he must play out the year for the $13 million.
Broncos rookie TE Jeff Heuerman making strides in ACL recovery
Heuerman -- a third-round pick in this year's draft -- hurt his knee back in May, but is making good progress on his way back from the injury.
"I wouldn't call them big strides," he said with a laugh on Thursday, "not literally, because they're actually pretty small strides—but I'm making progress."
Heuerman will likely miss the entirety of this upcoming season, but that hasn't put a damper in his recovery.
"Each day’s a bigger step, which it kind of sounds corny and it kind of sounds like I’m just saying that, but it really is," Heuerman said.
Vikings rookie CB Trae Waynes not worried about starting
Waynes -- the 11th overall pick in the draft -- said he has received a lot of help and guidance from his new teammates.
"A lot, it's almost like I've been getting coached by six different people during every play because those guys are so willing to help me out with any questions I have. They are being really helpful and helping me adjust," Waynes said.
Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston aims to lose weight
Winston will have a few weeks off as he prepares for training camp, so he will use that time to study his playbook and get into shape.
"Trying to lose some weight, try to get back skinny," Winston said, per NFL.com. "Right now I'm 238 (pounds), I'm trying to be my redshirt freshman year (weight), about 230. I mean, learn that playbook too, man, you can never go wrong with that."
Winston also added that he doesn't feel any extra pressure on himself because he was the top pick in the draft, or because of his previous off the field problems.
"I have nothing to prove," Winston said. "I believe that people make mistakes, but I also believe that you bounce back from those and I'm just moving forward."
