The Jets on Tuesday are back on the practice field, for their fourth organized team activities practice — and the second such session that is open to reporters.
Want to take a look at rookie quarterback Sam Darnold in action? Check out the video above.
The Jets began OTAs last Tuesday.
It is called a rookie minicamp, but it is not exclusively for rookies, which is why the newest Giants player is a 29-year-old with fairly extensive NFL experience.
The Giants, following the three-day camp, decided to sign cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris, who played in the NFL from 2012 through 2016 with the Bengals and Ravens, appearing in 33 games (no starts). Lewis-Harris’ work in the rookie camp impressed the coaching staff — he was allowed to participate because he was an unsigned free agent. Harris, undrafted out of Tennessee-Chattanooga, has one career interception. He was most recently cut by the Broncos prior to the 2017 season.
To make room on the 90-man roster, the Giants waived cornerback C.J. Goodwin, 28, who previously played a total of 28 games split between the Cardinals and Falcons. Goodwin did not last two weeks with the Giants; he was awarded off waivers May 2.
This continues the offseason strategy of adding veterans to compete for jobs in the defensive backfield. The previous signings were William Gay, Teddy Williams, B.W. Webb and Curtis Riley.
In his first year as head coach, the 32-year-old McVay helped author one of the league’s more stunning worst-to-first narratives, morphing an offense that birthed an unwatchable, NFL-low 14.0 points per game under Jeff Fisher in 2016 into a powerhouse that pumped out a league-leading 29.9 points per tilt.
It’s going to make us a whole lot better because the up-tempo and his play-calling style is crazy unique, Peters said. It’s going to cause for us to be on our toes a lot.
It’s especially high praise coming from Talib, the 32-year-old veteran who spent years in Denver practicing against Peyton Manning and seasons in New England seeing Tom Brady ‘s magic-spinning up close and personal.
The ill news for Rams opponents is that adding Talib and Peters only improves the offense by forcing McVay’s roster of weapons to face top talent on a daily basis.
It’s good competing against them at practice, wideout Robert Woods said. Very challenging guys, different guys. You see Talib with his experience, you see Peters just jumping the ball.
Have we mentioned Los Angeles also added All-Pro defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh to the mix? For all the talk of what the Rams can do on offense, this defense has the position-by-position talent to create equal excitement.
