The worst part of the NFL offseason isn’t the lack of news. It’s the news about injuries suffered during meaningless football. Already, one player has seen his 2018 season likely end before it could even begin.
I tried to play bass for a little bit, Carter said. It’s a little big. I don’t like the sound of it. I’ve dabbled in a couple of instruments.
Soon enough, Carter will dabble in sacking NFL quarterbacks, but the Giants see him as a three-down player who can compete for a starting job at outside linebacker.
I watched these coaches (Friday) give him some coaching points and he was able to use that in his next couple of reps, so certainly the arrow is (pointing) up there, head coach Pat Shurmur said.
The Giants’ backfield includes No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley, promising second-year pro Wayne Gallman and veteran Jonathan Stewart on a two-year contract.
How high is bar for Saquon Barkley?
Neil Walker wasn’t good at his job. His boss had just promoted the new guy into his spot and cut his workload in half. Boo birds were giving him no respect.
But Walker proved to be the hero in Saturday’s 7-6 win over the A’s at Yankee Stadium.
His walk-off single in the 11th inning brought the Yankees charging from their dugout to tackle him and dump water over his head.
He’s starting to prove he wasn’t a $4 million overpay by general manager Brian Cashman.
He’s a pro, manager Aaron Boone said. He’s proven who he is throughout his career and that’s a guy that can hit. I get excited and I admire when guys handle adversity really well, which he always has.
Aaron Judge felt the same way.
