  1. Guess Texans just let go of him to quick.
  2. The 49ers won’t have to deal with holdouts from their first two draft picks after all. Nick Bosa and San Francisco agreed Thursday to the parameters surrounding a four-year, $33.5 million deal, as first reported by ESPN, which means the talented defensive end will report to training camp on time. Additionally, second-round pick, receiver Deebo Samuel, has also agreed to a deal, according to NFL Network. The team confirmed the signings Thursday afternoon. The 49ers’ first practice of training camp is scheduled for Saturday morning after players report Friday.
  3. NFL players, including Tom Brady, will have to be in approved helmets this season April 13, 2019 washingtonpost.com The 32 NFL players who ended last season wearing helmet models not approved by the league and the NFL Players Association will have no such option this coming season. The grandfather clause allowing players to wear prohibited helmet models has expired, and all NFL players will be required to wear better-performing helmets in the 2019 season. “The prohibited helmets will not be allowed in the locker room,” Jeff Miller, the NFL’s executive vice president of health and safety initiatives, said Friday. “A player will not be allowed on the field [wearing such a helmet].” Any team that knowingly allows a player to wear a prohibited helmet model would be subject to discipline by the league, Miller said during a conference call with reporters in which NFL and NFLPA safety officials announced the results of their latest round of joint safety-related laboratory testing of impacts on helmets. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reportedly is among the players who must switch helmet models. Brady wore an approved helmet for part of last season but reportedly switched back to his previous Riddell VSR-4 helmet model that is on the list of prohibited helmets. “You’ve seen something a certain way for a long period of time, so I like as much vision as possible with the peripheral vision,” Brady said last summer, according to Boston.com. “It’s all important — it all matters — so, yeah, just making sure it’s kind of similar to what the experience has always been.” The NFL and NFLPA are in their fifth year of testing various helmet models to study how they “withstand impacts comparable to what a player would experience on the field,” said Jeff Crandall, the chairman of the league’s engineering committee. The league and players’ union compile the results, rank the helmets and produce a poster in which helmet models are placed into three categories: green, yellow and red. The best-performing helmets are in the green category. The prohibited helmets are in red. Injury data has supported the results of the testing, according to the safety officials. “The impact tests in the laboratory correlate to the on-field experience,” said Kristy Arbogast, the NFLPA’s engineering consultant. The NFL announced in January that the number of concussions suffered by players was down sharply last season. There were 214 concussions suffered by players during the 2018 preseason and regular season, according to the league’s injury data. That was down from 281 concussions in 2017, a decrease of 24 percent. According to the league, 74 percent of players were wearing the better-performing helmet models in the green category by the end of last season. That was up from 41 percent at the beginning of the season. “The education process was thorough and the players were listening,” Miller said.
  4. Elliott Fry signs three-year deal with NFL squad April 12, 2019 kicker Elliott Fry is getting his shot at the NFL — the Chicago Bears announced Friday that they have signed the one-time college walk-on to a three-year deal. Fry will have to compete for a starting role against the two other kickers the Bears have signed this offseason after rookie Cody Parkey missed a crucial 43-yard field goal in the first round of the playoffs. Fry left South Carolina as the program’s all-time points leader and recently spent time in the now-defunct Alliance for American Football, reuniting with his former coach Steve Spurrier on the Orlando Apollos. With the Apollos, Fry made all 14 of his field goal attempts, with a long of 44 yards. At USC, Fry made 66 of his 88 field goal attempts and was nearly across four years of extra points, making 161 of 162 attempts. After his senior season, he stayed another year at Carolina to finish his double major.
  5. Will Muschamp breaks down Gamecocks at the NFL Combine March 01, 2018 The on-field part of the NFL Combine begins Friday. The first USC product at this year’s event will take the field Saturday, and in the following days there will be plenty of scouting reports available about the potential of tight end Hayden Hurst, linebacker Skai Moore, defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth and cornerback Jamarcus King. While we wait for those, here are Gamecocks head coach Will Muschamp’s scouting reports on each of the players. Muschamp was a defensive coordinator with the Miami Dolphins under Nick Saban for one season. Hayden Hurst Draft Projection: Second round Muschamp: “I think Hayden is going to do very well. He can block at the point of attack and stretch the field vertically. He’s got really good hands. I think more than anything, he has a competitive edge.” Skai Moore Draft Projection: Fourth round Muschamp: “Instinctive, can play against two-back run teams, can play in space, has pass rush ability, extremely smart.” Taylor Stallworth Draft Projection: Undrafted Muschamp: “Taylor Stallworth is a guy that I think is very under the radar based on the NFL people I talk to. He can hold the point inside, get matched up against a lesser guard and win in the pass rush, extremely bright, extremely intelligent, I think he’s got a tremendous upside.” Jamarcus King Draft Projection: Undrafted Muschamp: “Jamarcus King is a guy that brings you some length at the corner position, has long arms, made a lot of plays on the ball, made a tremendous leap from his junior year to his senior year in his play.” Muschamp also praised seniors Chris Lammons (DB), D.J. Smith (DB), Cory Helms (OL), Alan Knott (OL) and Dante Sawyer (DL), who were not invited to the combine. “Those guys played good football for us last year and all those guys will have an opportunity in camp whether they are drafted or not drafted,” Muschamp said. “They will have an opportunity to make teams.”
  6. ESPN: Duce Staley to interview for NFL coordinator job Feb. 19, 2018 According to a report from Tim McManus of ESPN, former South Carolina star running back Duce Staley will interview with Doug Pedersson for the vacant offensive coordinator job with the Philadelphia Eagles. Frank Reich left the job to take the job as Indianapolis Colts head coach. Staley has been with the Eagles since 2011, running backs coach since 2011. He was part of the staff that won the franchise’s first Super Bowl this season. The report also says Philadelphia wide receivers coach Mike Groh will interview. The former Airport High School star ran for 1,852 yards and 17 touchdowns in two seasons in Columbia. He went on to run for 5,785 yards and 24 touchdowns in 10 NFL seasons, three times surpassing 1,000 yards. He spent seven seasons in Philadelphia and then three in Pittsburgh. His son, Damani, plays for the Gamecocks.
  7. Zandi, Gamecocks hoping to prove NFL projections wrong April 25, 2017 This week could mark an inauspicious milestone for South Carolina, but former Gamecocks offensive lineman Mason Zandi is hoping to prove the pundits wrong. “I’m going to have some family over on Saturday, and we’re going to cook out and hopefully get a chance to celebrate something special,” Zandi said. He could be celebrating his selection on the final day of the NFL draft when Rounds 4 through 7 will be held in Philadelphia, but many mock drafts don’t project Zandi or any other former South Carolina player being picked in the draft. Round 1 will be held Thursday night, and Rounds 2 and 3 will be held Friday. Seven-round mock drafts at FoxSports.com, CBSSports.com and NFL.com all predict that no former South Carolina players will be picked, which would be the first time that has happened since the 2001 season. The Gamecocks were coming off an 8-4 record in coach Lou Holtz’ second season. This year South Carolina is coming off a 6-7 record in Will Muschamp’s first season as head coach. Only four times since 1950 (2001, 1999, 1995 and 1978) has South Carolina seen a draft come and go without an alum getting picked. Zandi said he will watch Thursday night’s first round not out of any expectation but because he “always does.” After that, it’ll probably be some fishing Friday to kill some time and then a hopeful Saturday. “Last week, when about 14, 15 teams start calling you, you’re like, ‘Oh, this is about to get real,’ ” he said. “I’ve proven I am mature enough and motivated enough to continue working harder than I ever had, even when I don’t have a coach or a team I am working with.” Zandi started 24 games for South Carolina, including all 13 last year. The 6-foot-9, 309-pounder came out of Chapin High School as a three-star recruit in 2012. He earned a political science degree while with the team. He ran a 5.15 40-yard dash, vertical jumped 31.5 inches, broad jumped 9 feet, 5 inches and bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times at South Carolina’s pro day. During his phone calls with NFL teams, Zandi has gotten “a good vibe” from the Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings, he said. “Every time I have a conversation with one of their scouts or an offensive line coach or whoever it is, it always seems to be pretty positive and exciting,” he said. If Zandi is not selected in the draft’s seven rounds, he likely will be signed by a team as an undrafted free agent, which would give him a chance to make an NFL roster. “I’m just very thankful and very humbled and very blessed to be in the position that I am in,” Zandi said, “very excited.
  8. The former South Carolina star read a throwback screen perfectly, tipping Connor Cook’s pass in the air and intercepting it.
  9. “The Walking Dead” might beat the NFL in ratings here and there, but it’s rare for another sport to go head-to-head against the NFL and win. Major League Baseball must be feeling pretty good today. Link to read article: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/mlb-gets-a-huge-win-as-it-beats-the-nfl-in-tv-ratings-on-sunday-night-142955322.html
