Offensive tackle Ereck Flowers reported to the Giants offseason program Monday, after skipping the first portion of workouts and the team’s first voluntary minicamp of the offseason.
It likely isn’t coincidental that Flowers reported less than two weeks after hiring Drew Rosenhaus to represent him, just prior to the Giants declining his fifth-year option.
No one should be shocked if Fitzpatrick is in the running for Defensive Rookie of the Year. Miami’s pass defense gets immediately better with his addition.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a horrendous defense last season (32nd, with 378.1 yards per game allowed), which is why the team has taken steps to remake its defensive front. The team added pass-rushers Jason-Pierre Paul and Vinny Curry and used the No. 12 overall pick on former Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea.
Authentic Womens Alex Smith Jersey Pierre-Paul and Curry should immediately improve Tampa’s pass rush. Vea will eventually pair with Gerald McCoy to solidify the interior of the defensive line. The Buccaneers will soon have one of the better defensive lines in the NFL.
I embraced him by saying Authentic Richard Rodgers Jersey he’s a tough guy, head coach Pat Shurmur said recently, but I also told him we brought in a guy that’s going to play left tackle, and we want him to move over to right to compete to be a player there. And that we’re hopeful he’s going be one of our best five (offensive linemen).

We’re pushing everybody to start, head coach Steve Wilks explained on NFL Network. I’ve stated this several times: Sam Bradford is our starter. We gotta go out there with 11 guys, and Sam’s going to be the first guy out there. But everybody’s fighting for a position, so I’m not going to hold [Rosen] back at all.
Cardinals fans should expect Rosen to make a strong push for the starting job and should hope he wins it. Bradford has proved he can be a solid starter when healthy, but he is as injury-prone as quarterbacks come. Even if he opens the season as the No. 1, his injury history suggests he won’t finish it there.
Will Rosen be a Pro Bowler in his first season? Probably not, but fans should expect to see a fair amount of him as a rookie.
The Miami Dolphins might have taken a quarterback at No. 11 if one of the big four had been available. Instead, they’ll roll into 2018 with Ryan Tannehill again under center and with former Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick roaming the secondary.
