Packers' next order of business: What Aaron Rodgers return to Green Bay means for Davante Adams

  • NFL Packers American Football Aaron Rodgers will be back under center for the Packers in 2021. Now the only question left is whether his favorite target will be joining him in Green Bay.Like his quarterback, Davante Rodgers had been holding out from returning to the Packers. On Sunday, the duo hinted a return for both of them could be in the works by posting the same picture of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen from the ESPN documentary, "The Last Dance," to Instagram. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the restructured deal with Rodgers will give Green Bay more cap space and help the team make a renewed attempt at exte夜网论坛nding Adams.MORE: Five reasons Rodgers isn't holding out for 2021 season The 2021 season is Adams' last in his current four-year, $58 million deal with the Packers.Obviously, bringing Adams back would be a major boon for the Packers. A season ago, he hauled in 18 touchdown passes from Rodgers, tied for the third-most touchdown receptions in a single season. He also led the league in 98.1 receiving yards per game when he brought in 1,374 yards over 14 games. Since 2016, no quarterback-wide receiver tandem has connected for more touchdowns (53) than Rodgers to Adams. The receiver has also totaled the sixth-most receiving yards in that time span, with 5,639 yards.If Rodgers is back, the chances of Green Bay at least having Adams return to the field for 2021 should be higher — but there is still plenty of uncertainty if Madden 22's first 99 club member will re-sign with the Packers or continue his hold out.[......]

    Julio Jones trade grades: Titans hit pricey home run; Falcons save big but get little

  • NFL American Football Titans Falcons The Titans may not have been in the ideal position to trade for Julio Jones, but they did so anyway on Sunday, agreeing to acquire the former Falcons wide receiver in exchange for multiple draft picks.Tennessee made the move as an AFC title contender in 2021, trying to build on an 11-5 season in which it won the AFC South. Atlanta was desperate for salary-cap space to better compete in the NFC South, and trading Jones makes $15.3 million more available — which was needed just to sign its rookie draft class. The Titans will take on the contract Jones signed with the Falcons in September 2019. The seven-time Pro Bowler is set to make $11.513 million in each of the final two years of the current deal, 2022 and 2023.MORE: Julio Jones trade details: Falcons deal star receiver for picks Here's how Sporting News assesses the trade for both teams:Julio Jones trade gradesTitans receive:WR Julio Jones2023 sixth-round draft pickFalcons receive:2022 second-round draft pick2023 fourth-round draft pickTitans: A-The Titans avoided giving up a first-round pick next year and deferred the extra Day 3 pick compensation until 2023. From that end, GM Jon Robinson hit the deal out of the park, knowing his team could use an impact veteran starter opposite young star A.J. Brown after losing 2017 first-rounder Corey Davis (Jets) in free agency.Tennessee is one of the NFL's run-heaviest teams, featuring Derrick Henry in the power rushing attack. That philosophy won't change with former tight ends coach Todd Downing promoted to offensive coordinator in replacement of Arthur Smith, now the Falcons' rookie head coach.But the presence of Henry also has given the Titans an explosive play-action passing game for quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Brown (6-0, 226 pounds) has been a big part of that field-stretching success, averaging 20.2 and 15.4 yards per catch in his first two seasons, respectively. Jones (6-3, 220 pounds) is known to be a dangerous deep threat throughout his 10-year career, averaging 15.2 yards per catch. The Titans have raised their home-run ability and now have a second strength-speed matchup nightmare on the outside.The Titans also added receivers in former Rams backup Josh Reynolds and Louisville's Dez Fitzpatrick in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Adding Jones is huge in trying to replace the 192 combined vacated targets of Davis, slot receiver Adam Humprhies (Washington) and tight end Jonnu Smith (Patriots).But with Jones, the Titans need big offensive results that will add up to going further than the Chiefs, Bills and other AFC powers in the playoffs. As well as Tannehill has perfo[......]

    Ja'Marr Chase quiets doubters with strong Bengals debut: 'I thought he was dropping everything?'

  • NFL Bengals v Vikings Bengals Vikings American Football Ja'Marr Chase endured a tough preseason with the Bengals. Chase, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, caught just one pass while dropping a whopping four passes over the span of three games.Chase received scrutiny for his performance. He explained that he was adjusting to seeing the NFL ball, which is a bit different than the ball at the college level, but he wasn't worried about it ahead of the regular season. "I've been hearing that," Chase said of the chatter about his problem with drops after the game. "That's just trash talk. Just block out the noise."MORE: 49ers suffer awful bad beat against Lions He was right not to be worried. Chase put together an excellent first game for Cincinnati. He led the team in r夜网论坛eceptions (five), receiving yards (101 yards) and was one of two Bengals receivers to catch a touchdown from Joe Burrow. Chase's touchdown was a nice one. He beat the Vikings defender by a step and made a catch on a perfectly thrown ball from Burrow to earn the go-ahead score.BURROW.CHASE.SIX FOR CINCY.Right where they left off at @[email protected] | @real10jayy__ | @Bengals📺: #MINvsCIN on FOX📱: NFL app pic.twitter.com/8TGbksVvAJ— NFL (@NFL) September 12, 2021MORE: Browns' Ronnie Harrison ejected after punching Chiefs coachChase's strong effort drew the attention of many, including his teammates.

    Colts' Benny LeMay flagged for taunting because he . . . got too excited about his cool run?

  • NFL Colts Colts v Panthers Panthers American Football The NFL wasn't kidding about strictly enforcing taunting rules during the 2021 season.Early in the third quarter of Sunday's preseason game between the Colts and Panthers, Indianapolis running back Benny LeMay took a handoff from quarterback Sam Ehlinger and rumbled for 14 yards and a first down.

    49ers RB depth chart: Trey Sermon, Kerryon Johnson, Jacques Patrick highlight potential leaders of banged-up backfield

  • NFL 49ers 49ers v Packers Packers American Football The 49ers are facing some serious questions at the running back position ahead of their "Sunday Night Football" clash with the Packers.It started when Raheem Mostert went out for the season with a knee injury. He was expected to be the team's backfield leader with last year's rushing lead Jeff Wilson Jr. on the PUP list. Now, the team is using a committee approach, but even the backs they are using in that capacity are in flux. San Francisco has lost JaMycal Hasty, who is week-to-week because of a high ankle sprain. Their other two projected backfield leaders — Elijah Mitchell and Trey Sermon — were both on the Week 3 injury report, and Mitchell (shoulder) was listed as doubtful for the Sunday night game. That has led the team to sign three additional running backs this week after they added another ahead of Week 2.The 49ers have a grand total of 10 running backs on their 53-man roster, practice squad and injury lists. That makes it difficult to predict exactly what the team is going to do at the position. Here's an in-depth look at the 49ers' backfield as they navigate injuries and figure out how to field a running game in Week 3.QB RANKINGS: Where does Jimmy G rank among NFL's 32 starting QBs?49ers RB depth chartHere's what to know about the 49ers' running back depth chart entering Week 3 of the 2021 NFL season. The team hasn't yet updated its official depth chart to reflect the injuries to Mostert, Mitchell and Hasty, but these are the players they could potentially have available against the Packers.1. Trey SermonSermon's rookie season hasn't gone as planned so far. The third-round pick out of Ohio State was inactive for the opener and played just one offensive snap against the Eagles. He carried the ball eight yards but was concussed and fumbled on the play.Despite his concussion, Sermon has a chance to play on Sunday night. Shanahan said that he was on "a good path" in his recovery. If that's the case, he should be in line for a large role, as Mitchell is expected to be out. He also is set to play more special teams when he does return to the lineup.Sermon — 6-0, 215 pounds — can serve 夜网论坛as a bruising starter. Sermon isn't the fastest back, but he has enough burst to rip off big plays. He could have a nice outing against the Packers if the team leans on him with Mitchell out. He has more experience in San Francisco's system than any other back.2. Trenton CannonCannon's name may be familiar to some.

    Ron Rivera is 'beyond frustrated' with Washington Football Team's low vaccination rate, and he has good reason why

  • NFL Washington Football Team American Football Capital offense?The NFL is urging every team 夜网论坛across the league to reach vaccination thresholds so the 2021 season doesn't have the issues that the 2020 season had, with games rescheduled and players landing on COVID lists. The Washington Football Team has surpassed a 50 percent vaccination rate, but that's still not good enough for head coach Ron Rivera, who doesn't want the team to befall the fate that other teams faced in 2020.Speaking on Tuesday, Rivera says he is "beyond frustrated" with his team's low vaccination rate.  "Now, for whatever reason, we have some reluctance to do that, to get the vaccine," Rivera said (via ESPN). "These young men have to make the decision for themselves. Hopefully they can understand how impactful not getting the vaccine is, and you'd like to believe with all the news that's been out there in terms of the fact that people are being hospitalized, that are dying from COVID right now, are those that aren't vaccinated."MORE: NFL isn't messing around with new vaccination rulesBut more than the potential effects on the team, Rivera has reason to be concerned with his personal health. After undergoing chemotherapy for skin cancer last year, Rivera is immunodeficient.Coronavirus has been proven to be especially harmful for people who have compromised immune systems, as Rivera has. The coach says he's still taking steps in public to protect himself further, including wearing a mask in groups."When I'm in a group and the group's not vaccinated or there's a mixture, I put the mask on, and I do that for health reasons because nobody really knows," Rivera said. "I have to do that. And I just wish and I hope that our guys can understand that."WFT has brought in specialsts on vaccination to help educate the team, but to no avail; defensive lineman Montez Sweat was one of Washington's most vocal players opposing the thought of getting the vaccine.In 2020, WFT was one of the league leaders in coronavirus avoidance, with just two players — neither on the team's 53-man roster — testing positive for COVID-19. Rivera wants to take steps to make sure that continues in 2021.[......]

    Exploring the Colts' best Carson Wentz injury replacements, from Nick Foles to Jimmy Garoppolo

  • NFL Colts 49ers Bears Raiders American Football The Colts knew Carson Wentz had some durability issues when they decided to trade for the former Eagles quarterback. With Wentz suffering an early foot injury during his first training camp in Indianapolis, its coaching staff now needs to scramble for a potential half-season replacement.Coach Frank Reich told reporters Wentz with opting to have surgery to remove a bone and repair the foot instead of rest, the 2016 first-rounder could miss up to 12 weeks of action. Although there's a chance Wentz could come back to action earlier, that rough three-month timetable means there's a great possibility of Wentz missing 8 games, or almost half of the 2021 NFL season before an early November return. For an 11-5 returning playoff team, that's a big blow to the Colts, who had hopes of Wentz rebounding into form while reuniting with Reich. With Philip Rivers retired, the Colts' depth chart is short on in-house experience behind Wentz, even with the recent signing of journeyman Brett Hundley.With GM Chris Ballard, the Colts tend to be aggressive and are willing trade for outside veterans to fill key holes (see Wentz). They also have a couple intriguing late-round picks from the last two drafts to evaluate more in camp. Here are Indianapolis' six best options to replace Wentz:MORE: Breaking down the Colts' QB depth chart1. Trade for Nick FolesThis is by far the best solution and might be the only realistic one to maintain the Colts' status as playoff contenders. The Bears have no short- or long-term plans for Foles anymore after giving up on Mitchell Trubisky. Andy Dalton is tabbed to be the new veteran bridge starter with first-round future franchise QB Justin Fields ready to be unleashed at some point during the season.Chicago made a desperate mistake by taking Foles off Jacksonville's hands last year. Now the team can send him back to the AFC South to take advantage of Indianapolis' own desperation for some decent return on a QB they don't need.Reich had strong working relationships in the past with Rivers and Wentz, which is why they were the consecutive solutions after the sudden retirement of Andrew Luck with Jacoby Brissett not being a good fit for the system. Foles was the ultimate supersub for Wentz in Philadelphia under Reich, winning Super Bowl 52 MVP honors. Ballard and Reich need to think about bringing Foles right down I-57 to play for his sixth NFL team as s夜网论坛oon as possible.2. Trade for Ma[......]

    Bears' Justin Fields explains relationship with Andy Dalton: He 'has just completely taken me under his wing'

  • NFL Bears American Football The Bears may have some uncertainty at the quarterback spot this offseason, but that's not stopping their quarterbacks from bonding.In particular, And夜网论坛y Dalton and Justin Fields appear to have a good relationship with the veteran and former Bengal serving as a great mentor for the first-round rookie. "I've learned a lot of things [from Dalton]," Fields said, per ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. "I mean, he's talked to me a lot. I actually went to dinner with him and his wife. I mean, Andy and Nick [Foles], they've been awesome, probably bigger than you guys even know."Andy has just completely taken me under his wing. Any question that I have for him, he's going to answer, even when I'm throwing. I think there was one day after OTAs, I was throwing extra after practice and he stayed out there specifically to see maybe what I was doing wrong. He was just trying to help me out." MORE: Bears bidding on Arlington race track; could they move?It's no surprise to see Dalton take on a role as a leader and mentor with the Bears. He is currently the favorite to emerge as the Bears starting quarterback with coach Matt Nagy confirming that the plan is to start Dalton — who signed a one-year, $10 million deal with the Bears this offseason — over Fields and Foles.But being labeled a backup ahead of his rookie season is not bothering Fields at all. In fact, he knows exactly how to deal with this thanks to his past experiences in a similar spot."I've been in a situation like this [entering the season as a backup] before, and all I did was get better," Fields said. "So I feel like you can control what you can control and come to work every day with a positive attitude and a want to get better, then there's no stopping you. I think when that time comes, when I do get my opportunity, then I just would like to be ready for that moment."Fields, of course, is referencing his time at Georgia, when he was the backup to Jake Fromm as a true freshman. He saw limited action in 12 games before transferring to Ohio State and leading the Buckeyes to back-to-back appearances in the College Football Playoff.It's unclear how long Chicago will trust Dalton as the starter or when they might be willing to turn to the No. 11 pick that they traded up to select.Either way, Fields is buying into the plan. He's using his time as a backup to improve and adjust to the NFL level."If I don't believe in it, it's not going to work out," Fields said. "My job is strictly [to] get better and be the best quarterback I can be and hope my team wins. That's what I'm going to do whether it's starting, whether it's sitting, I'm going to do whatever is going to help us win."[......]

    NFL Twitter reacts to Jameis Winston workout video: 'So frustrating to watch'

  • NFL Saints American Football Even when he's not actively playing, Jameis Winston is a walking content generator. The latest such example of that came on Tuesday after a video leaked on Twitter of the Saints quarterback going through a pocket drill.In the video, Winston seems to be traversing an imaginary pocket and avoiding contact with training dummies while keeping the ball high enough to where trainer Otis Leverette can't knock it out of his grasp. Though it appeared a tad clumsy, Winston to his credit did not drop the ball once. Jameis Winston and his trainer Otis Leverette amping up his workouts with training camp rig夜网论坛ht around the corner in a month. #Noles #Saints pic.twitter.com/cM2y0TiGnJ— Logan B. Robinson (@LogansTwitty) June 22, 2021MORE: Winston gives rousing speech at youth football camp, says he's 'outworking everybody'It makes sense that Winston, the former No. 1 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, would try to work on limiting his turnovers. The former Buccaneers quarterback fumbled at least six times every season as a starter in Tampa Bay, fumbling the ball 15 and 12 times in 2017 and '19, respectively. That's on top of his interceptions, of which he threw 88 in just five seasons. That includes a whopping 30 in 2019, his final season with the Bucs. Those aren't the type of numbers the Saints are looking for in replacing Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees. So it makes sense Winston would put in the offseason work as he attempts to wrest the starting quarterback position from heir apparent Taysom Hill.That said, Winston's awkwardness in the video invites plenty of criticism, valid or otherwise. And Twitter is rarely willing to pass up an opportunity to react. With that, here are some of the more notable reactions to Winston's workout video:They gotta stop leaking Jameis’ training vids.

    Five wildest moments from Raiders' bizarre OT win over Ravens on 'Monday Night Football'

  • NFL American Football Raiders Ravens The Ravens and Raiders played a pulsating "Monday Night Football" game in Las Vegas to cap Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season, with the Raiders winning 33-27 in overtime.That's the short way of describing one of the wildest finishes to an NFL game in recent memory: There was an entire game's worth of twists and turns in just the final six-plus minutes of OT game action. Take the winning coach's word for it: "I felt like I had died and woke up, and died again," Las Vegas' Jon Gruden said. "I was like a cat; I had multiple lives tonight."Here's SN's attempt at capturing just how much of a roller-coaster overtime was: NFL WEEK 2 PICKS: Against the spread | Straight-up predictionsBryan Edwards' would-be game winnerLas Vegas won the toss to start OT and received.

He missed Hunter Renfrow in the corner of the end zone on second down, but had Willie Snead breaking wide open over the middle on the ensuing play. Had Snead gotten his hands on the ball, he could have jogged into the end zone.
