Dion Lewis a roster lock for New England

New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis is a roster lock, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. What It Means: LeGarrette Blount is no longer in the picture, but James White is still in town and the Patriots added Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead in the offseason. Lewis' roster spot has been in question of late but Reiss believes Lewis will play limited snaps and provide explosiveness and quickness from the running back spot. numberFire's models project Lewis for 515 total yards and 3.9 total touchdowns on 108 touches spread across the Patriots' rushing and passing games.

Steelers Fan Playa Hatin' Semifinals Results: No. 1 Burfict vs No. 12 Blount

Steelers Fan Playa Hatin' Semifinals Results: No. 1 Burfict vs No. 12 Blount

The results are in and one-half of our finals is set in BTSC’s quest for Steeler Nation’s Most-Hated. The vitriol is strong for Vontaze Burfict. With apologies to Diane Chambers, Steeler Nation hates this guy with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. Don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely no love list for LeGarrette Blount either as evident by his receiving 13% of the vote against a guy who seemingly maims for fun. One commenter said it all with a mere three letters about Burfict...P.O.S. I agree but I would replace the word piece for pile. Let’s review the results as of...

Steelers Fan Playa Hatin' Semifinals: No. 1 Vontaze Burfict vs No. 12 LeGarrette Blount

The semifinals of Steeler Fan Playa Hatin’ kicks off with two players that have been infamous foes of the Steelers in recent history. We are down to the final four in our quest to discover ultimately who the worst of the worst is according to Steeler Nation. Vontaze Burfict, the original No. 1 seed, is definitely a favorite for his undisciplined treachery unleashed against a Pittsburgh and the rest of the NFL. LeGarrette Blount basically turned his back on Steeler Nation and was rewarded with two rings in three years in New England. He left the Steelers without a backup RB...

Steelers Fan Playa Hatin' Round 2 Results: No. 4 Suggs vs No. 12 Blount

The semifinals are set in stone, as a former Steeler bests a current antagonist. Apparently the actions of T-Sizzle over 14 years against the Steelers pale in comparison to the dumpster fire that was the brief tenure of a LeGarrette Blount in Pittsburgh. His weed transgression with Le’Veon Bell, his dessertion of the team to the locker room during a win against Tennessee and his alleged disruption of the locker room has not been forgotten by Steeler fans. Couple that with his return to New England and winning two rings, it is enough to advance Blount into the semifinals. No. 4 Terrell...

Eagles will save money by waiting to cut Ryan Mathews (neck)

The Philadelphia Eagles can avoid paying running back Ryan Mathews (neck surgery) an injury settlement by waiting until he's medically cleared to release him. What It Means: This explains why Mathews hasn't been released yet. If the Eagles cut him today, they would be forced to pay the veteran back a $1.15 million Injury Protection Benefit. Philadelphia currently ranks 29th in available cap space ($6.08 million). LeGarrette Blount should dominate the early-down work in the Eagles' backfield. Out of the 27 running backs to see 150-plus rushing attempts in 2016, Mathews ranked...

Steelers Fan Playa Hatin' Round 2: No. 4 Terrell Suggs vs No. 12 LeGarrette Blount

After a recount of sorts, BTSC polls you on a Pat or a bird of rat to advance to the semifinals of Steeler Fan a Playa Hatin’. Before we get started with the vote, clarification of why Terrell Suggs is listed here is necessary. Some may recall that BTSC had originally reported Julian Edelman as the top vote-getter by a very slim margin. However upon further review, after submission but before the article appeared on BTSC, Suggs had pulled ahead and the poll closed with a vote of 291 to Edelman’s 287. Hence, Suggs moves on. A lot of Steeler fans have softened their stance on Suggs,...

AFC Notes: Patriots, Steelers, Texans

Patriots Mike Reiss believes the biggest impact from the team’s free agent acquisitions this year will come from RB Mike Gillislee. Reiss mentions that it will fall on Gillislee to replace veteran RB LeGarrette Blount, given that his skill set is more in line with Blount’s than the other running backs currently on the Patriots’ … The post AFC Notes: Patriots, Steelers, Texans appeared first on NFLTradeRumors.co.

Ryan Mathews and LeGarrette Blount to split Eagles' early-down work

The Philadelphia Eagles expect running backs LeGarrette Blount and Ryan Mathews to split early-down work for the Eagles this season, Darren Sproles said to ESPN's Josina Anderson. What It Means: Sproles sees himself as the primary back on third downs with Donnel Pumphrey working out of the slot and Wendell Smallwood occupying an "all-purpose" role. The Eagles are widely expected to release Mathews, who missed the team's offseason program while recovering from neck surgery. Maybe Sproles knows something we don't, but Mathews still seems like a major long shot to make the 53-man...
