We have heard pundits criticize...

George Iloka’s release doesn’t make sense

George Iloka’s release doesn’t make sense

The Cincinnati Bengals announced that they were releasing George Iloka. We’re still trying to figure out why. According to reports, the Cincinnati Bengals are releasing starting free safety George Iloka. Wow. A source told ESPN the move was related to his performance in 2017. A Bengals source said the team wasn’t happy with how George Iloka played last year, which was pretty clear when they tried to pursue Kurt Coleman at the NFL combine. The Bengals went after him hard but he signed with the Saints. A source told me the Bengals indicated the move was for financial reasons, but as for...

Jets 2018 Roster Countdown: Number 47 David Bass

Our Jets roster countdown now looks to David Bass. Name: David Bass Number: 47 Year with Jets: 2nd Projected Role: Situational pass rusher His 2017: The Seahawks released Bass early in the season, and the Jets signed him prior to their Week 3 game against the Dolphins. Bass promptly registered sacks in his first two games in the green and white but only picked up 1.5 more over the final 11 games of the season. He remained unsigned through much of the offseason. The Jets finally re-signed him after not selecting an edge rusher in the NFL Draft. 2018 will be a success if: Bass plays at a much...

Will Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott play this preseason? Team owner Jerry Jones isn't so sure

Will Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott play this preseason? Team owner Jerry Jones isn't so sure

ARLINGTON -- The preseason formula for Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott has worked the last two seasons. Sit him for all but one of the preseason games, but play him briefly in the "dress rehearsal" game, which for Dallas this year is next Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals at AT&T Stadium.Elliott had seven rushes in the 2016 preseason and six in 2017. He's said he expects to follow a similar plan this year. But team owner Jerry Jones might have other ideas. "I'm going to have to think about that right there," Jones said Saturday night after the Cowboys' second preseason...

As Mike Boone shines against Jaguars, Vikings' RB competition heats up

In the Vikings’ first preseason game, Roc Thomas stole the show with a pair of receiving touchdowns, including a 76-yard score off a screen pass that highlighted the rookie free agent’s versatility as an option to help replace Jerick McKinnon in the Vikings’ offense. On Saturday, it was Mike Boone’s turn. The Cincinnati product gained 91 yards on 13 carries, including a 26-yard burst that turned out to be the Vikings’ longest play of the day. And a week after allowing a sack when he reacted late to a blitz up the middle, Boone appeared to take a step forward in pass protection in...

Safety Jaylen Watkins tears ACL

In typical Chargers fashion, another (possibly) key player has suffered a season-ending injury. This injury was sustained by Safety Jaylen Watkins. Watkins has reportedly torn his ACL, per Ian Rapaport. This is the third player that has suffered this injury for the Chargers, with the first two being tight ends Hunter Henry and Austin Roberts.

Jets 2018 Roster Countdown: Number 44 Lawrence Thomas

Lawrence Thomas is next up in our Jets roster countdown. Name: Lawrence Thomas Number: 44 Year with Jets: 3rd Projected Role: Starting fullback His 2017: Thomas had an eventful 2017. He started the season as a defensive lineman and then started getting some action as a fullback. Before long, the Jets converted him to fullback.

The fullback position is being phased out of today’s NFL, but...
