Eagles defensive tackle Tim Jernigan underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc, Howard Eskin of 94 WIP reports.
Jernigan will not take part in the team’s offseason program but is expected to make a full recovery, per Eskin.
There’s no substitute for experience and he’s got it. So no, the age doesn’t bother me. It was, of course, easy to say that all along. The Giants showed us they mean it a few weeks ago. And based on Shurmur’s work over the past few years in getting the most out of a variety of different quarterbacks, that simple act should carry weight.
My belief in Eli is in being a pro coach that’s competed against him, Shurmur said.
Falk, a notorious Tom Brady fan, now enters a depth chart led by Marcus Mariota, a franchise quarterback who’s likely to soon get a nine-figure contract. Sort of like the 10-year, $103 million deal Drew Bledsoe signed in March 2001, only months before Mo Lewis inflicted an injury to Bledsoe that opened the door for Brady.
The connections between the Titans and Patriots make this one a little eerie, but it still remains a long shot for #Luke to become anything closer to the player #Tommy is. Regardless, they have at least one thing in common: They entered the league in the same draft spot.
The Detroit Lions have operated this offseason as if Matt Patricia is the NFL’s most important offseason addition, the X-factor that will morph the franchise from a team hovering around.500 to a perennial contender.
But that leap, if it happens, will come through incremental improvements, and arguably no unit stands to benefit more from coaching-related adjustments than the Lions’ offensive line.
