Rams waive 2017 sixth-rounder Sam Rogers, sign two undrafted rookies

All eight of the Rams’ 2017 draft picks opened the offseason on the team’s roster, but one of them won’t be there for the rest of the offseason program.

The Rams announced on Tuesday that fullback Sam Rogers has been placed on waivers. Rogers was one of two sixth-round picks for the team last year and spent the season on the practice squad. The Rams also waived running back Lenard Tillery.

Oakland did bring back its former head coach Jon Gruden, but assuming it takes a 10-6 record to get into the playoffs, is Gruden worth four extra wins? There’s a lot of optimism around the Gruden hiring, which is somewhat rational considering the Raiders have only won the AFC West once since he first left Oakland after the 2001 season.

In addition to a seminar from the Rutgers coaches designed to teach football basics and on-field drills intended to provide the fundamentals, participants will take part in a dinner and a tricky-tray raffle at the Hale Center.

Of the two, the Rams have at least a viable case for competing with the Golden Knights, given that they had been truly dreadful for the better part of a decade and were down to what appeared to be a replacement-level quarterback for an entire NFL season. Even they might not top Vegas, though. Those Rams were 200-1 to win the Super Bowl before that NFL season began. The Golden Knights were anywhere between 50-1 and 500-1, depending on when you bet.

The Broncos had interest in acquiring Kaepernick in trade from the San Francisco 49ers over the 2016 offseason. However, the deal never came together as the two sides couldn’t agree upon a restructured Cheap Baseball Jerseys China contract.

Kaepernick is trying to find evidence that proves the NFL jointly discussed and formulated a plan to keep him off an NFL roster after his decision to protest social issues by kneeling for the national anthem prior to games in 2016.

Per sources, one anthem idea being discussed: Leaving Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys it up to home team on whether teams come out for the anthem; if teams do come out for the anthem, potential that teams could be assessed 15-yard penalties for kneeling.

Jay Cutler Reportedly Expected to Retire from NFL at Age 34

After teasing retirement last year before playing the 2017 season with the Miami Dolphins, quarterback Jay Cutler has reportedly decided Cheap Baseball Jerseys China to retire from the NFL at the age of 34.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Cutler’s decision to walk away from the game after 12 seasons.

A first-round pick by the Denver Broncos in 2006, Cutler announced his retirement in May 2017 and was set to join Fox Sports as part of the No. 2 broadcast group as part of a team with Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis.

Cutler sounded comfortable with his decision to walk away Cheap Cycling Jerseys from the game at the time.

I’m happy with where I am, you know, in my life and really in the future going forward, Cutler told WMVP-AM’s The Waddle and Silvy Show (via NFL.com’s Kevin Patra). So, yeah, we can go ahead and say it. It’s permanent.

Thoughts: This is the only projection that had Smith sliding to the Lions. Most mocks have the Georgia linebacker coming off the board in the first 10 picks. If he’s there for the Lions, yeah, you jump at the opportunity to add the rangy, hard-hitter. Plug him in at the weakside next to Jarrad Davis and you have two linebackers who don’t have to leave the field.

Mike Shanahan, who was Denver’s head coach when it drafted Cutler in 2006, felt one of the quarterback’s biggest problems during his time in Chicago was a lack of stability with offensive coordinators, via ESPN.com’s Jeff Dickerson:

All I can go by is what he did with me in Denver, and how he played and how he handled himself—and you just say,’Holy cow!’ and you are kind of surprised it didn’t work out for whatever reasons. The obvious one is the turnover in coordinators. You are learning a different scheme and a different terminology every time. That is tough on any quarterback.

There were some good moments for Cutler throughout his career. In 2010, he led the Bears to the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers before a knee injury knocked him out in the third quarter.

Cutler was always an enigma who was more interesting in theory than execution. His arm talent made him a starting quarterback for more than a decade, but he was never able to evolve into more than someone with a strong arm.
