Ryan Tannehill remains Miami’s quarterback. And yet the Dolphins continue to show interest in members of the incoming rookie class.
During a recent visit to PFT Live, coach Adam Gase addressed the persistent belief that he’s not committed to Tannehill.
We’ll see what he does with that in 2018. If Tannehill doesn’t thrive, Gase may need to get a new quarterback, or fans may start clamoring for a new coach.
Last year, Quinn leaned on free agency to continue the remodeling. The Lions opened up the checkbook to acquire right tackle Rick Wagner and guard T.J. Lang, replacing former Martin Mayhew draft picks Riley Reiff and Larry Warford.
Now Quinn must find center Travis Swanson’s replacement. After two injury-plagued seasons, the Lions allowed the former third-round pick to walk in free agency, leaving an opening in the starting lineup.
Glasgow is projected to slide to center, but with two years of starting experience at guard, the team has some flexibility coming into the draft.
Among the players currently on the roster who could contend for the starting job are Dahl, Corey Robinson and free-agent additions Kenny Wiggins and Wesley Johnson.
Dahl started three games at left guard for the Lions late last season. Wiggins started 16 games for the Chargers at right guard and has previous experience with new offensive line coach Jeff Davidson. Johnson was the Jets starting center in 2017. And Robinson, the Lions swing tackle, got a surprising start at guard last season.
Derrick can get it downhill, press the hole, hit the hole, and really turn it over and outrun people, general manager Jon Robinson said, per Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website. He can stick it up there and run over people. Dion can make people miss. He can kind of get lost in the wash up in there and squirt out, and be good out of the backfield.
The Titans also shored up their secondary by signing Malcolm Butler to a whopping five-year, $61 million deal that includes $30 million guaranteed.
Considering last year’s Titans logged nine wins despite lacking flash, the retooled version has a real chance to propel the franchise back to double-digit wins for the first time since 2008.
Finally, there are the Indianapolis Colts.
