A rookie could be the heir to Vikings' throne of royal return men

MINNEAPOLIS -- It's been nearly a decade since the Minnesota Vikings had to worry about whether they'd start drives in prime field position.

taking back five kicks for touchdowns from 2009-12. Then,First, it was Percy Harvin establishing himself as one of the most dynamic return men in the league, it was Cordarrelle Patterson leading the league in return average during three of his four years in Minnesota, earning two All-Pro honors and scoring five kick return TDs of his own.

they've enjoyed premium field position after kickoffs more often than almost any team in the league. According to ESPN Stats and Information, third, sixth, the last time the Vikings didn't rank in the top 10 in average field position after a kick return was 2008. Since then, they've been first, seventh, third,Since the Vikings drafted Harvin in 2009,Authentic Joe Haden Jersey , first, first and second during their eight years of Harvin and Patterson.

the Vikings will have to determine whether they've got a return man capable of staking them to the same advantage. Wide receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have experience as returners,Emmitt Smith Jersey,Now, with Patterson in Oakland,Dez Bryant Jersey, but both might be too valuable to the offense to be employed on kick returns. Running back Jerick McKinnon could fall in the same category. Rather, the Vikings' next return man might be one of the two receivers they took on the third day of the draft.

a fifth-round pick from South Florida, averaging 29.1 yards a return and scoring a touchdown as a junior. Stacy Coley, returned 46 kicks in college,Ezekiel Elliott Jersey, whom the Vikings picked in the seventh round out of Miami,Rodney Adams, averaged 24.3 yards on 47 career returns for the Hurricanes, scoring once in 2014.

with 40-yard dash times under 4.45 seconds. Both will likely get chances to take the job. And both would be counted on to continue a legacy of high-performance returners.,Both have the speed for the job

have excellent speed, linear kid,"Both of them are very explosive athletes," general manager Rick Spielman said on Saturday. "Adams, whatever we have to do to find those returns. We think both have explosive play-making ability as kickoff returners.", is kind of a slot receiver, you watch him on tape, and he’s making big plays all the time. They’re running jet sweeps and for a tall, he gets hit, 2015,Joe Haden Jersey, and he’ll bounce right back up. But, we watch all their returns,Authentic Emmitt Smith Jersey, and we even went back if they didn’t return this year we got back to 2014

Spielman said the Vikings keep a separate board for kick returners and punt returners, apart from their regular draft board,Authentic Dez Bryant Jersey, and spent three hours last Friday night scouring their options for potential successors to Patterson.

"We kind of tie those two boards in together with what they are as a position, and I know we wanted to make sure we had some potential guys that can step in and fill in as a kickoff returner,Authentic Ezekiel Elliott Jersey," Spielman said. "I think some of these guys can be potential punt returners down the road as well. So it’ll all be open competition."

During the Vikings' era of dominant return men, they've had more than a few offenses that could use a boost to start a drive. With Patterson's run ending after four years, just as Harvin's did, it could be up to one of the Vikings' two rookies to provide the same kind of edge.

Houston Texans OTAs Update: Deshaun Watson Continues to Work and D'Onta Foreman Hits the Field

Quick hitters from the Houston Texans work day during the second week of Phase III of OTAs.

The Texans gave some key veterans time off from work today. J.J. Watt, Johnathan Joseph, Chris Clark and Brian Cushing (shoulder surgery) all took in practice from the side while wearing team-issue gear. Duane Brown was a no-show once again and Keith Mumphery was not in attendance at practice after news coming out regarding an incident at Michigan State in 2015 that has him banned from campus until late 2018. The Texans were still gathering information on the incident that hit newswire early this morning.

Rookie running back D'Onta Foreman hit the field for the first time all spring and was instantly plugged into the offense to get him used to the scheme. Foreman has been working to get back on the field since rookie mini-camp and missed that three-day period plus the first week of OTAs,
Deatrich Wise Jr.Jersey
, as he was working to get into NFL shape. Bill O’Brien mentioned Foreman’s conditioning levels at the start of OTAs and the Texans will take no chances with players who are not ready to hit the field. It was clear Foreman was trying to get his footing early and became more comfortable as the practice went on. He showed some of his one cut ability and is able to getting into the second level with a quickness when he has space.

Braxton Miller returned to the field and it is clear that he is way more comfortable with the offense and his role in it. He made a nice catch on a ball thrown behind him and was able to turn his body,
Marshon Lattimore Jersey
, making the catch in between two defenders. Miller is looking confident getting in and out of his routes. Last season he was able to win one on ones with pure athleticism. Now he is winning with refined route running. It is clear Miller has worked on his craft over the off-season.

The offense looked much better with Tom Savage running the show. If anything,Authentic Marcus Williams Jersey , Savage looks more comfortable with his role as the starting quarterback. That alone has settled him down compared to last week and he was able to throw some nice strikes to receivers. He hit Hopkins early in the day with a quick throw for a touchdown in red-zone work, and he has done a good job of getting the ball out on time.

EARLY in the process,There continues to be a learning curve for Deshaun Watson regarding how he is acclimating to the game, that he is overmatched. There is plenty of time for him to continue to work on his game and continue to learn the system. Watson had a few good throws and then some really bad ones today,Authentic Deatrich Wise Jr.Jersey,Authentic Marshon Lattimore Jersey,Authentic Ryan Ramczyk Jersey , and just NFL life in general. It is easy to see,Ryan Ramczyk Jersey,Marcus Williams Jersey, the offense,Authentic Alvin Kamara Jersey, but when he does make the good throws,Alvin Kamara Jersey, it is pretty clear that he has the attributes necessary to succeed in the NFL. Getting him slowed down and confident in his ability to work within the system will be a process. One thing Watson is doing plenty of is asking questions to coaches and his fellow quarterbacks after reps on the field. He works late after practice with receivers and centers trying to iron out his game which is a plus for any player at this level.

Mass. — There’s a reason Lawrence Guy, like many players in New England,FOXBORO, is listed vaguely on the Patriots’ roster
as a defensive lineman.

Guy, 305 pounds, at 6-foot-4, is the size of a defensive tackle, but the Patriots love versatility because they play a hybrid
other times they’ll be in a 4-3,defensive front. Sometimes the Patriots will be in a 3-4, and there are moments when it’s
neither or both.

who signed as an unrestricted free agent in March,Authentic Dan Feeney Jersey, on their roster last season,Authentic Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey,The Patriots didn’t have a player like Guy,
eschewing the mid-sized defensive linemen for traditional edge rushers and nose tackle types. There’s a good chance Guy will
be asked to play anywhere from nose tackle to seven-technique defensive end with the Patriots this season,
Gerald Everett Jersey
, because head coach
Bill Belichick asked if he could handle that type of responsibility when he visited New England as a free agent.

“I said,Authentic John Johnson Jersey, ‘I feel comfortable anywhere you put me at.’ It’s one of those situations with me as a player that I … found that
I needed to play different positions for me to be the best player I can be,” Guy said Wednesday at Gillette Stadium. “Coming
wherever they need to put me at, I can go ahead and do it. I’m not a great corner. I’m a little bit heavy,in this situation,
but I’ll try it.”

The Patriots should be just fine at cornerback.

I’ll do what I gotta do to make a play,” Guy said. “It doesn’t matter if I’m at nose (tackle),“You put me on the field,
(five-technique defensive end),(three-technique defensive tackle), (six-technique defensive end) or (seven-technique defensive
end). I’ve seen it and played it all, so I’m just happy to go out there and play and make plays.”

The Patriots have more certainty at defensive tackle than they do at defensive end at this point in the offseason. Defensive
tackles Alan Branch and Malcom Brown are multi-year starters, and Vincent Valentine showed flashes as a rookie in 2016. Only
Trey Flowers and Rob Ninkovich return from the Patriots’ 2016 defensive end rotation. They added veteran Kony Ealy and rookies
Deatrich Wise and Corey Vereen. They also have Geneo Grissom,
Dan Feeney Jersey
,Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey,Derek Rivers,Authentic Gerald Everett Jersey,Authentic Cooper Kupp Jersey, who almost exclusively played special teams last

That means Guy might be inserted into the Patriots’ defensive tackle and defensive end rotations this season. That will be
especially necessary if Rivers and Wise don’t prove they can contribute as rookies. The Patriots also won’t be forced to play
an undersized player out of position as they did last season with Chris Long at five-technique defensive end.

so if they put me at a position they need me to work at, I’ll go out there and do it,
Cooper Kupp Jersey
,“I like to be on the field,
John Johnson Jersey
,” Guy said.
“The whole object is to be able to play multi positions on the field so you can be out there for the most time you can and how
you’re not really helping the team. If you can do multiple things,you help the team out. If you can only do one thing, you
can help the team a lot.”

Another member of the Jacksonville Jaguars rookie class is under contract. When Cam Robinson inked his first NFL contract on Wednesday, it meant the team’s potential starting left tackle won’t have to worry about negotiating a deal while learning the pro game.

“It feels great,” Robinson said via “It’s something you always dream about,Authentic Connor Cook Jersey, since you were a kid. When you’re a kid,Authentic Mario Edwards Jr Jersey, this is a life-long goal. …

“Right now,Clive Walford Jersey, everything’s kind of going fast. I think when I get time to actually sit down and think about it, I’ll realize how big of a deal it is. Right now,Authentic Isaac Seumalo Jersey, I’m just taking it all in stride.”

Robinson participated in the Jaguars’ rookie minicamp in mid-May and is now in his second week working with the team during organized team activities.

“I think it’s going well,” Robinson said. “There are always a ton of things I can improve on; the type of player I am, I’m always looking to improve. But I think for the most part I’ve made pretty good strides and done a good job of progressing day in and day out.”

The deal for Robinson, which’s Michael DiRocco reports to be a four-year contract worth $7,018,128 with a $3,Connor Cook Jersey,Mario Edwards Jr Jersey,244,Authentic Clive Walford Jersey,Authentic Jordan Hicks Jersey,092 signing bonus. That leaves third-round pick DE Dawuane Smoot as the only unsigned draft pick.

With Robinson getting reps at left tackle,Jordan Hicks Jersey,Isaac Seumalo Jersey, has been a no-show, the Jacksonville Jaguars can feel more secure with the left side of the offensive line. Branden Albert, who the team traded for prior to the Draft, asking for a new deal before he reports to the team’s facility at EverBank Field. Robinson could win the left tackle job, even if Albert comes to camp, or he could be moved inside where he could play left tackles.

Jacksonville Jaguars former head coach Gus Bradley had a similar dilemma last season when Luke Joeckel and Kelvin Beachum were competing for the left tackle spot. Beachum won and Joeckel was kicked inside to play guard.

Robinson was taken in the second round out of Alabama.

Packers rookie defensive back Josh Jones probably couldn’t have asked for a better mentor than veteran Morgan Burnett.

A second-round pick back in 2010, Burnett has developed into a pillar of stability and reliability for the Packers secondary – and he’s recently added the kind of versatility that should help Jones make the difficult transition from college to the NFL.

Early on at OTAs,Authentic Rees Odhiambo Jersey, Jones has worked at safety and linebacker within the same role that Burnett helped create for the Packers defense last season.

“The nice thing there, who has done the same type of thing, you gotta guy like Morgan Burnett,” defensive coordinator Dom Capers said on Thursday. “Morgan is a good mentor for Josh.”

The Packers call their hybrid subpackage “Nitro,” and it calls for a safety – like Burnett or Jones – to drop down to linebacker and play in the box. The look gives Green Bay more speed and more options to combat the spread looks proliferating the NFL.

Learning two positions as a first-year player can’t be easy, but Burnett’s experience and leadership have been huge for Jones early on.

“He knows the defense. He’s a really good mentor, in terms of helping him with things, when you got Josh Jones,” Capers said. “He’s the consummate team guy.”

veteran players can be vital to the development of young players. While coaches teach,Within the work environment of football,Jarran Reed Jersey, teammates can fill in the gaps – helping define what the coaches are looking for and explain the nuances of the playbook.

“Morgan and Ha Ha (Clinton-Dix), those are two studs right there,Authentic Nick Vannett Jersey,Authentic Frank Clark Jersey, talking about on the field and off the field, I’m telling you,” safeties coach Darren Perry said on Thursday. “Sometimes your veteran players are your best teachers. They’ve been real pros in that regard. It’s good.”

Perry said Jones’ head is still “spinning” from all the information thrown his way early on this offseason. The Packers are putting a lot on the rookie’s plate, but Perry is confident Jones can handle it.

“His work ethic has been outstanding, just from the things we’ve asked him to do up to this point. When you’re a good player, you figure it out. He’s still learning,” Perry said. “You can tell he has a good football IQ, but we like what he’s done up to this point.”

The combination of help from Burnett and individual work ethic could fast track Jones’ development as a young,Authentic Jarran Reed Jersey,Authentic C. J. Prosise Jersey, versatile player learning a new defense.

“He’s working hard right now,C. J. Prosise Jersey,Nick Vannett Jersey,Rees Odhiambo Jersey,Frank Clark Jersey,” Capers said about Jones.” I think he’ll be a versatile guy.”

Josh Dobbs will be backing up both Landry Jones and Ben Roethlisberger in 2017.

That's according to Bob Labriola of, who wrote on Tuesday that Jones will remain the Steelers' primary backup quarterback this season. Many thought Dobbs -- Pittsburgh's fourth round pick in this year's draft -- would get a chance to compete with Jones for the team's No.2 position on the depth chart.

and Josh Dobbs will be No. 3," Labrioola wrote. "Maybe that’s not what you want to hear,"There is no battle. Landry Jones will be the backup quarterback, but it’s the truth."

Keep up to date with the 6X Super Bowl champions!

Jones signed a two-year,Pittsburgh's backup quarterback since the 2013 season, $4.4 million deal with the Steelers back in March after not receiving any offers on the open market.

"I wasn't going to be stupid. If there was a place to go play somewhere, via "It didn't turn out. So once that was over with," Jones said,Authentic Eric Kendricks Jersey, I was like,Authentic Danielle Hunter Jersey, I would want to take that chance and give myself that take that opportunity,Cyrus Jones Jersey, 'Shoot,Authentic Joe Thuney Jersey, I'm going go back to Pittsburgh.'

and I'm just thankful that I have a job and a spot to come back to. It was the best decision for me and my family. For us, if all things were equal, I wasn't going to go anywhere. I wasn't going to leave Pittsburgh. They've treated me so well here,"There wasn't any tough decision about it. I'm very familiar with this place, so that's where my mindset was."

Jones is 2-2 as a starting quarterback over the past two seasons that includes going 1-1 last season. Ironically,After not receiving a single regular season snap during his first two NFL seasons, Jones' most impressive performance thus far came in Pittsburgh's Week 7 loss to New England that saw him complete 29 of 47 passes for 281 yards and one touchdown with one interception. He threw a second touchdown pass that was called back due to a holding penalty in the Steelers' 27-16 defeat.

" Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said earlier this offseason. "He's been given an opportunity to grow and show growth, and that growth has been consistent from our perspective. The opportunity that he had in Week 17 to deliver victory for us was a great experience for him,"He has continually improved over his four years with us. He's answered the call and really answered the call in an above the line manner,Eric Kendricks Jersey,Danielle Hunter Jersey, it was a great information gathering for us.

"We're extremely conformable with the overall trajectory of his career,Authentic Cyrus Jones Jersey,Authentic Jacoby Brissett Jersey, (and) we're hopeful for what he's able to provide for us moving forward."

While the Steelers may have drafted Dobbs to be Big Ben's eventual successor,Jacoby Brissett Jersey,Joe Thuney Jersey, the team apparently does not want to rush him onto the field while being comfortable in Jones being the team's backup quarterback in 2017.

QUINCY -- Like most dirt-track racers,Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey, Vance Wilson has a short memory.

Wilson was helped from his car seven days earlier following a nasty crash in the sport mod feature.

rebounding to dominate another attempt at a sport mod main event. Wilson led all 18 feature laps,He put the week before in his rear-view mirror on Sunday, holding off Brandon Lennox from the drop of the green flag for an eventual .941-of-a-second victory.

44,Wilson, has been a regular at 8000 Broadway since 1995 and has enjoyed success in various disciplines of both the modified and late model divisions.

but I do love the late models,"It's been a toss-up for me (between the two classes)," Wilson said. "The biggest difference between the two divisions are the tires."

Wilson's lone track championship came at the wheel of an "A" modified in 2001, when he edged Sam Burgtorf for the title by 11 points.

Wilson drove a crate late model early this season, then took over the No. 28 ride of sport mod owner Chuck Ancell.

"Chuck deserves a lot of credit for getting this car put back together after last week," Wilson said. "I wasn't able to help him much."

the first year statistics were kept at the track. The only drivers who have won more main events in that span are Michael Long (118),Authentic Jarrad Davis Jersey, Mark Burgtorf (99),Authentic Teez Tabor Jersey, Abe Huls (53), Steven DeLonjay (53),Authentic Kenny Golladay Jersey,Sunday's feature victory was Wilson's second in a sport mod and 33rd overall in one kind of car or another since 1999, Tony Dunker (50),Brad Kaaya Jersey, Hank DeLonjay (42) and Austen Becerra (34).

Dunker and Tanner Klingele. Dunker (193),Finishing behind Wilson and Lennox in the feature were Justin Ebbing, Ebbing (186) and Klingele (179) are the points leaders.

Michael Long in modifieds,Other feature winners Sunday night were Tommy Elston in the crate late models, Daniel Fellows in sport compacts and Ben Waggoner in the 305 sprint cars.

Elston broke a tie for the crate late model points lead with Denny Woodworth by earning his third feature win of the season. Woodworth was second, and Brendon Savage was third.

Elston withstood several late charges from Woodworth for his flag-to-flag victory.

"I just made my car a little wider," Elston said of being able to hold off Woodworth.

Elston remains one of the biggest boosters of the more cost-efficient first-year crate class.

" Elston said. "Not everyone is on board yet, but when everyone does,"This is going to be a savior (of the late model division), it will be great."

Elston now holds a 365-360 points lead over Woodworth. Savage (286) is third.

the 14th time in his career at Quincy Raceways he has won three or more consecutive main events. Long, who led all 20 feature laps,
Jarrad Davis Jersey
,Long stretched his current modified win streak to three,
Teez Tabor Jersey
Kenny Golladay Jersey

Latavius Murray already needed to sit out two games last season due to turf toe,Arik Armstead Jersey, then something was bothering him during the first Raiders-Broncos

game in Week 9.

You couldn’t tell by looking at him,Jaquiski Tartt Jersey, but during Murray’s best game in a trying season he injured the ankle that would require arthroscopic surgery
right after the Vikings signed him to a three-year, $15 million deal in March.

Murray ran for 114 yards and three touchdowns despite injuring his right ankle against the vaunted Broncos defense. From then on he averaged fewer
than 3.0 yards per carry in four of the last seven games.

so I was really just trying to play through it and suck it up,Authentic Tyler Lockett Jersey,“I thought it was a sprain or that’s what was communicated to me,Authentic Germain Ifedi Jersey,” Murray said
I figured I’d get some rest,Wednesday. “At the end of the season, heal up and it’ll get better. But at that point it hadn’t and I wanted to get
it checked up. That’s when I found out I had a bigger problem and needed surgery.”

who has played 45 of 48 games in the last three seasons,But Murray, has been through this before. Having suffereda similar injury and rehab on his
left ankle as a rookie sixth-round pick in 2013 has given Murray some comfort as he transitionsfrom the Raiders to the Vikings.

” Murray said. “I’ve dealt with this rehab,“My rookie year I had the same injury on the other foot, I’ve dealt with this surgery. I think that’s
because I’m feeling great,been a benefit for me, but I also knew what to expect. The rehab process has been really good.”

who is out of the walking boot and expects to be running unassisted again in about a week,Authentic Arik Armstead Jersey,Murray,Authentic Jaquiski Tartt Jersey,Authentic Eli Harold Jersey, said he’s not worried about a career setback due
having ran for all 2,Eli Harold Jersey,to the operation,Tyler Lockett Jersey,278 career yards and 20 touchdowns after the similar operation four years ago.

“There was nothing I was afraid of that I thought I’d have a setback from,Germain Ifedi Jersey,” Murray said. “I knew it because I’ve had it before and I knew that
when I needed it before, it did nothing but benefit me and make me better. I’m just happy I figured out what it was and could get the problem fixed.

he’s attempting a return in half the time. In 2013,This time around, Murray underwent arthroscopic surgery on his ankle in August and was placed on
injured reserve before the season started. He said he made a full return about nine months later to the field when the Raiders offseason program began
in 2014.

Both Murray and the Vikings expect him to be ready by training camp, or about four months after this ankle surgery. The Vikings could use the 6-foot-3
if needed,veteran to ease rookie Dalvin Cook’s transition, and have all hands on deck with Jerick McKinnon to revive the league’s worst running
game from last season.

“When it’s time for training camp, preseason games, then obviously that’s when the real battling is going to come in,” Murray said. “That’s when
everyone has to bring their best and separate themselves. I’m going to do everything I can like I have in the past to separate myself and I’m sure
those guys are going to do the same.”
