Five Takeaways:Custom Buccaneers Jersey Rams vs. Chargers

After a rocky first two quarters, the Rams’ second-half comeback came up just short as they fell to the Chargers in the penultimate preseason contest. Rams insider Myles Simmons has five takeaways.

 

The Rams had a rocky start to Saturday’s Custom Redskins Jersey matchup with the Chargers, with the offensive starters never quite finding a rhythm. While the club mounted a comeback in the second half, Rams dropped the contest 21-19. But with all preseason games, the final score never quite tells the whole story. With that in mind, here are five takeaways from this week’s penultimate exhibition Custom Buccaneers Jersey game.

1) Only two defensive starters

The Rams started the game with only two of their 11 regular defensive starters on the field in cornerback Trumaine Johnson and safety Lamarcus Joyner. Healthy players such as linebacker Alec Ogletree, defensive tackle Michael Brockers, and outside linebacker Connor Barwin did not dress fort the game. Head coach Sean McVay had said there was a chance outside linebacker Robert Quinn could play, but he also did not dress.

Cornerback Kayvon Webster and safety Maurice Alexander were not announced as players who wouldn’t suit up, but they, too, did not play.

In all, the Rams announced 10 players who would not dress, including running back Todd Gurley.

But with so many starters on the bench, the home team had a tough time slowing down the visitors early. Quarterback Philip Rivers capped the Chargers’ opening drive with a 45-yard touchdown pass to speedy wide receiver Travis Benjamin.

2) Offensive giveaways lead to Chargers points

Playing without Gurley, the offense started its first drive well, but a key turnover got the Chargers back on the board.

Quarterback Jared Goff connected with wideout Robert Woods on the left side for a 16-yard gain. And then the second-year QB evades a few defenders in the pocket to find running back Malcolm Brown in the flat. The running back took the Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale pass Personalized Redskins Jersey down the right sideline for a 22-yard gain.

But that was about it for solid Rams plays. After defensive pass interference put the Rams in the red zone, Joey Bosa came in for a strip-sack that Melvin Ingram recovered and returns 76 yards Custom Buccaneers Jersey for a touchdown.

Then on the Rams’ next drive, Goff threw an interception on a deep pass on the left side. Wide receivers Personalized Buccaneers Jersey Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins were both in the area, but cornerback Jason Verrett pulled the ball in for the interception.

Goff ended the night 5-of-8 passing for 56 yards. Mannion came on in relief midway through the second quarter, with Goff playing just three possessions.

3) Reynolds making his mark

Rookie wide receiver Josh Reynolds caught the game-winning touchdown last week in Oakland, and continued to perform well against the Chargers.

In the third quarter, Reynolds caught a pass over the middle from Mansion and was hit hard immediately as a defenseless receiver. The penalty was egregious enough for four flags to fly from the officials, but the wideout nevertheless held on for a first down.

Just a couple plays later, Reynolds beat his defender downfield one-on-one and Mannion laid a pass right into his arms for a 38-yard touchdown.

Reynolds caught another pass over the middle late in the third quarter for a 17-yard gain, giving him three
Men’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Light Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale receptions for 71 yards in the period.

4) Hatfield gets a pick

Undrafted rookie cornerback Dominique Hatfield made a case to make the initial 53-man roster with a nice interception midway through the second quarter.

On 3rd-and-2 from the Rams’ 49-yard line, Chargers reserve quarterback Cardale Jones fired a shot pass to Benjamin on the right. Hatfield was there to contest the catch, and ripped the ball from Benjamin’s arms for the takeaway.

The Rams would get points off the takeaway with a 21-yard field goal by kicker Greg Zuerleien.

5) Zuerlein gets it done

Speaking of Zuerlein, the Rams’ kicker was a perfect 3-for-3 on field goals in the first half. His first came from 42 yards, and his second from 21. But the kicker also ended the first half with an impressive 57-yard field goal.

Zuerlein has been consistent throughout the preseason, making all eight kicks attempted in the first three games.

Travis Coons also made a 53-yard field goal in the second half, which cut the Chargers’ lead to 21-19.

 

Halftime Notes -Personalized Titans Jersey Rams vs. Chargers

The Rams committed two costly turnovers in the first quarter and trail the Chargers 21-9 at halftime.

 

The Rams had a rocky start to their third game of the preseason, committing two costly turnovers in the first Personalized Titans Jersey quarter. At halftime, the Rams are down 21-9 to the Chargers. Here are a few notes from the first 30 minutes of action.Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale.

MANY STARTERS SIT

The Rams announced pregame that a number of healthy starters would not dress for the matchup, including running back Todd Gurley, middle linebacker Alec Ogletree, defensive tackle Michael Brockers, and outside linebacker Connor Barwin. There was a chance outside linebacker Robert Quinn would play, but he also did not dress.

Though it wasn’t announced cornerback Kayvon Webster and safety Maurice Alexander would not dress, neither appeared on the Chargers’ first possession. And so the result was the home team beginning the contest with just two of its 11 defensive starters on the field.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers led the visitors on a six-play, 75-yard touchdown drive that ended with a 45-yard touchdown pass to the speedy wideout Travis Benjamin.

TOO MANY TURNOVERS

The offense looked like it was off to a good start, advancing to the Chargers’ eight-yard line. But on 3rd-and-7 from that spot, outside linebacker Joey Boss recorded a strip-sack on quarterback Jared Goff. The Chargers’ Melvin Ingram was there to recover the loose ball, and returned it
Women’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Away White NFL Jersey Cheap  for a touchdown.

The visitors scored more points off of a Rams’ turnover, when a Goff pass was intercepted by Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett on the left side. It took nine plays, but Personalized Redskins Jersey running back Melvin Gordon finished the drive with a two-yard touchdown run to give the Chargers a 21-0 lead with just over a minute remaining in the first quarter.

Goff finished his night 5-of-8 passing for 56 yards with an interception and a fumble. Backup quarterback Sean Mannion came in to relieve Goff midway through the second quarter.

HEMINGWAY CARTED OFF

Early in the second quarter, second-year tight end Temarrick Hemingway Custom Redskins Jersey was carted off the field after suffering an apparent leg injury. There’s been no injury update as of halftime, though head coach Sean McVay may have more information after the game.

PICK FOR HATFIELD

Undrafted rookie cornerback Dominique Hatfield Custom Titans Jersey made a case to make the initial 53-man roster with a nice interception midway through the second quarter.

On 3rd-and-2 from the Rams’ 49-yard line, Chargers reserve quarterback Cardale Jones fired a shot pass to Benjamin on the right. Hatfield was there to contest the catch, and ripped the ball from Benjamin’s arms for the takeaway.

The Rams would get points off the turnover with a 21-yard field goal by kicker Greg Zuerlein.

Hemingway Suffers Fractured Personalized Titans Jersey Fibula

TE Temarrick Hemingway will be out for a significant amount of time after suffering a fractured fibula against the Chargers on Saturday.

 

Second-year tight end Temarrick Hemingway will be out for a significant Custom Titans Jersey amount of time after suffering a fractured fibula on Saturday, head coach Sean McVay said on Sunday.

“Unfortunate for him because he was one of those that [we’d] seen a lot of encouraging things [from], did a lot of really good things on the line of scrimmage — especially in the run game,” McVay said. “So that’s a big loss for us. And it’s going to require some guys to step up in his absence. And we’ll see how guys handle that.”

Hemingway was carted off the field following a nine-yard run by Malcolm Brown in the second quarter Custom Redskins Jersey of Saturday’s preseason matchup against the Chargers. According to McVay, Hemingway is slated to have surgery on Tuesday. After the procedure, McVay said Personalized Titans Jersey there will be more clarity on the extent of the injury and a timetable for recovery.

“There’s a couple different ways that it could play out, where it could potentially be an eight-to-10-week thing, where he’d be one of those guys [who’s a candidate] for
Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale the IR/designated to return possibility,” McVay said. “But if you go in there and you find some different things based on him getting rolled up on, it could be a three-to-four-month injury. So you can’t really say until you fully have the surgery, get in there, and see the specifics of what’s going on.”

Selected in the sixth round of last year’s draft out of South Carolina State, Hemingway Personalized Buccaneers Jersey was mainly a special teams contributor as a rookie, but had been carving out a significant role for himself in McVay’s offense.

“He was one of the guys that I was extremely encouraged with — we were as a staff — and really counting on him for some big things,” McVay said. “I think when you talk about the length, the athleticism, his movement — when he gets the ball in his hands, he can create after the catch. He offered a lot of flexibility with what we could do with some of our personnel groupings.

“So it’s a big loss for us,” McVay continued. “And, like I said, it’ll be interesting to see who steps up to fill that void because there certainly is one left by what
Men’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Light Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale we had anticipated for Temarrick for the start of the season.”

With Hemingway sidelined, McVay said tight ends like Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett may have to contribute more in the run game. And Cory Harkey continues to be an option at the position, too.

“What Cory Harkey has been to this organization over the last couple years offers him an opportunity to step up,” McVay said. “Cory’s a good football player that does bring some versatility to the position, and those are very helpful things for us.”

Two younger tight ends who will have a chance to showcase their talents on Thursday against Green Bay are Johnny Mundt and Trav Personalized Redskins Jersey is Wilson.

“[T]hey’ll get a lot of snaps and it will be a great opportunity for us to evaluate them as well,” McVay said.

Despite Up-and-Down Night,Custom Titans Jersey Goff Feels Ready for Regular Season

QB Jared Goff said based on his entire body of work in the preseason — including practices — he feels like he and the Rams’ offense are in a good place to start the regular season.

Though head coach Sean McVay held many starters out of Custom Titans Jersey Saturday night’s matchup against the Chargers — including running back Todd Gurley — second-year quarterback Jared Goff played the Rams’ first three drives.

The opening possession started well. Goff hit wide receiver Robert Woods with a 16-yard pass on the right side. Then Goff maneuvered well in the pocket, evading a few defenders before making an outlet pass to Malcolm Brown in the flat, which the running back took 22 yards down the field. A defensive pass interference foul put the Rams in the red zone, where the club looked poised to tie the game at seven.

But the Rams wouldn’t cash in. On 3rd-and Custom Buccaneers Jersey-2 from the visitors’ eight-yard line, Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa came in from Goff’s right and strip-sacked the quarterback. Outside linebacker Melvin Ingram picked up the loose ball and returned it 76 yards for a touchdown.

“We have to do a good job of protecting, but we also have to be ready to step up, hold on to the football,” McVay said. “And certainly we talk about Personalized Redskins Jersey the importance of turnovers, and we have to do a better job, collectively, taking care of it.”

Then on the third play of the Rams’ ensuing drive, Goff attempted a deep ball to wide receiver Sammy Watkins on the left. But the quarterback overshot the wideout and the pass landed in the hands of cornerback Jason Verrett for an
Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale interception.

“I just came off it a little bit. I can’t do that. I can’t make that throw. Just a bad throw,” Goff said. “I felt someone coming down my throat a little bit and I have to stand in there and throw it.”

Goff played one more another series that ended in a field goal — a possession where he mostly handed off and attempted only two passes. He ended his night 5-of-8 passing for 56 yards with the two turnovers.

“I think when you look at the sample size, those are the two plays that everybody will talk about,” McVay said. “Over the course of a full game, you get a chance to really redeem yourself a little bit more than he did, just based on the amount of plays that he played. But there were some good things. He made a great off-schedule play where he finds Malcolm Brown on the wide route and ends up going for a big gain, so there are some positives.”

“It’s all good stuff to learn from,” Goff said. “I think at the end of the day, it’s good to have this stuff happen in the preseason and hopefully it can be avoided in the regular season.”

Even though there were so many starters who either did not dress or did not play, Goff said the first drive was evidence that the mood was no different to start.

“We moved the ball right down the field on them on that first drive, just like we had the previous couple of games on the first drives, moved it down the field,” Goff said. “Felt good and then ultimately snowballed there on us early
Men’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Light Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale — but no, I don’t think so.”

 

McVay said no final decisions have been made regarding playing time for Thursday’s game at Green Bay. But it appears more likely than not Goff will not appear against the Packers, particularly Personalized Titans Jersey given how many starters did not dress on Saturday. If that’s the case, Goff said he feels like he got what he needed out of his preseason appearances.

“I would’ve like to have finished the day on a little bit of a better note, but I think in all three games as a whole I feel like I did a good job and feel like I got a lot out of it — got some good work and some good situational stuff,” he said.

“He got a chance to play 35 snaps against Oakland where you can really get into a real rhythm,” McVay said. “It’s going to be very important for us to maximize practice if that’s the direction where we go, where he doesn’t play against Green Bay next week.”

Goff felt similarly when asked if he feels the offense as a unit is ready to go heading into the regular season.

“No doubt, I think so,” Goff said. “I know it’s not the same as a game, but we do so much situational stuff in practice and so much replicating game stuff, that we are in that rhythm and that feel. Especially with Todd, and me being in my second year now, I [have] a great feel with him. All the receivers I’ve been able Custom Redskins Jersey to work with all the way [from] OTAs up until now — we feel good.”

 

How Will McVay Approach Personalized Titans Jersey the Last Week of Preseason?

After an NFL rule change, the Rams will have a 90-man roster for the final game of the preseason before making cuts at the end of the week.

After weeks of practices and a few exhibition games, the NFL preseason comes to a close this week. Head coach Sean McVay has said the Rams will shift some of their focus to the regular-season Personalized Titans Jersey opener against the Colts, holding out those on the first-team units in this week’s contest against the Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale Packers.

“The plan is to stay with probably resting our starters and trying to get them some good work this week on the practice field and then starting to gear up looking forward to that Indy game,” McVay said on Monday.

This year, the league rules changed allowing teams to keep 90 players on their rosters for all four preseason games. Previously, teams had to cut down to 75 men following the third exhibition contest. That’s why the rule change is especially beneficial to those who may not have had a chance to impress before.

“I think what it’s enabled us to do is feel good about knowing that the guys that you’re projected as your starters — you can hold out, maybe ramp it up a little bit more with them in practice as opposed to if they had to get ready for a game Custom Buccaneers Jersey,” McVay said. “Then, like I’ve said before, I think it offers the unique opportunity for a handful of guys that would’ve been cut, to be able to put some good game film on tape in that fourth preseason game. If it doesn’t work out for us, hopefully it will work out for one of the other 31 teams.

“You give guys a chance where they don’t have to play that whole preseason game that maybe have gotten a lot of work — where it might offer a [quarterback] Dan Orlovsky to get more snaps, because of Sean Mannion’s experience he’s gotten,” McVay added. “Might offer a chance to see some of those guys like the [tight end] Travis Wilsons, like the [tight end] John Mundts that we mentioned
Men’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Light Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale to get more snaps than they would’ve otherwise.”

Following Thursday’s game, McVay will go through his first cut-down day as a head coach. However, he was heavily involved in the process during Custom Redskins Jersey his time as Washington’s offensive coordinator, assisting head coach Jay Gruden.

“I think you always have a bottom line number in place for certain spots with how to get to that 53,” McVay said. “But, what I thought Jay and [team president] Bruce [Allen] and when I was working with [former General Manager] Scott McCloughan — I thought they did such a good job of, ‘Let’s not be aware of the 53, but what’s your 46 on game day?’, where you might be able to keep some extra players at certain spots, if you do have some depth and some good football players.

“I think just being around some people that did it the right way was very helpful,” McVay continued. “But, we’ve got a lot of people in place here, both from the coaching and the personnel staff that we’ll rely on to be able to come to those decisions that are best for our organization.” Those are things that we’re talking about right Custom Titans Jersey now, [Sunday] — all morning projecting that knowing that the next week will Personalized Redskins Jersey offer some changes to that. But, you still always want to have that Youth Tampa Bay Buccaneers Nike Customized New Elite Red Team Color Jersey big picture perspective in mind.”

 

Austin Expected to be Personalized Redskins Jersey Ready for Season Opener

HC Sean McVay said the Rams are expecting WR Tavon Austin to be ready to Personalized Redskins Jersey play Sept. 10 against the Colts.

Wide receiver Tavon Austin has been sidelined since early in training camp with a hamstring injury. He was sidelined for the majority of the offseason program, too, after undergoing surgery on his wrist.

And while Austin won’t play against Green Bay on Thursday — nor will any of Los Angeles’ starters — head coach Sean McVay said on Sunday that the wideout should be ready to go on Sept. 10 for the Custom Redskins Jersey season opener agains the Colts.

“He’s made huge progress with [head trainer] Reggie [Scott] over the last week where he’s running, reaching some higher speeds on the treadmill and stuff where it’s 100 percent of his weight that he’s supporting Personalized Buccaneers Jersey. So those have been some good things. And we’re going to have to Custom Buccaneers Jersey start brainstorming some ways of how we’re going to utilize Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale Tavon in that game — which will be fun.”

Because Austin has not done much on the field since McVay took over as head coach, there’s still some question Personalized Titans Jersey as to how the wideout will fit in the new offense. But McVay says that’s a good problem to have.

“The anticipation is he’s going to be a part of that game plan,” McVay said. “How exactly we utilize him are fun things for us to be able to
Men’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Light Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale figure out. But he’s going to be a part of that for sure.”

 

Watkins Feeling More Comfortable,Personalized Titans Jersey Building Rapport with Goff

WR Sammy Watkins has experienced a hectic couple of weeks since arriving in L.A., but he’s feeling more comfortable and confident in the Rams’ offense.

Any trade can be difficult on a player. Among the many challenges, there’s Custom Titans Jersey a new playbook to learn, new teammates to build chemistry with, and a new city to live in.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been through that gauntlet since being traded to the Rams on Aug. 11. But on Tuesday, Personalized Titans Jersey Watkins sounded like a man trying to keep life as simple as possible when as he acclimates to his new environment.

“I haven’t really put too much thought about where I’m going to stay at, or been out in L.A. really,” Watkins Custom Redskins Jersey said. “Just been trying to really handle everything dealing with football, so I’ll probably be squared away in the next two or three weeks,
Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale find a place. But right now I’m just focused on football.”

So far, that approach has paid off. Head coach Sean McVay has said since the trade that getting Watkins up to speed will be a challenge. As McVay put it Tuesday, the entire offense has already been installed.

“Now we’re going through different phases of our offense and what we try to do is try to create some of those pressure situations in practice where it’s a sudden change and different things that you really can’t anticipate — where [if] it’s on the script, they know the plays that are coming,” McVay said. “So, for Sammy that possess a little bit bigger learning curve.”

Still, McVay said he’s been impressed at Watkins’ ability to process the information he’s been given and excel on the field.

“I’ve been really pleased with Sammy up until this point, and he did a good job today making a handful of plays,” McVay said. “We anticipate him being a big contributor to what we hope to do offensively.”

Watkins made his Rams debut last Saturday against the Raiders, making a pair of receptions. The wideout admitted
Men’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Light Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale he definitely felt “some jitters” during the contest.

“I was definitely comfortable, but at the same time, you kind of run to the line thinking like, ‘Oh, what do I have?’ So I couldn’t really play fast as I wanted to,” Watkins said. “But that just comes with reps and having more time with the QB, with the offense, and just playing more.”

Watkins gave credit to fellow wide receivers Robert Woods — his teammate in Buffalo for three seasons — and Cooper Kupp for aiding him whenever he feels unsure at the line.

“I don’t know every play, so sometimes I don’t know them and guys just give me a cue, give me a signal, and that’s definitely been helpful,” Watkins said. “And, with [Woods] it’s just helpful, because every day he comes prepared to practice, practice hard and I try to build off that.”

“‘Coop’ does a great job,” Watkins added. “If I don’t know anything, I definitely look to my right and he’ll signal something out to me. He’s definitely been helping me.”

It’s one thing to know the plays, but it’s another to build chemistry with the quarterback. While Personalized Buccaneers Jersey Watkins and Jared Goff have connected on some nice plays in practice — not to mention Goff’s well-thrown deep ball to Watkins in Oakland — the wideout
Women’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Away White NFL Jersey Cheap knows a true rapport takes time to establish.

“I think the more reps you get with him, the more he can trust you and the more comfortable he is with throwing the ball to you, and the more you get open,” Watkins said. “That’s the best thing ever, just to have a guy that doesn’t even look your way — just look the safety off and throw you the ball — because he depends on you to be at the right spot. So, that’s the page that I’m trying to build and I think we’re moving in the right direction.”

But then there’s that often-asked question, what number will Watkins wear in the regular season? Temporarily sporting No. 2, Watkins isn’t thinking much about this, either.

“I haven’t figured it Personalized Redskins Jersey out yet, but I’m kind of open to anything,” Watkins said. “I don’t want to wear 80s but I’m willing to keep it in the teens.”

 

Austin Returns to Custom Redskins Jersey Practice

WR Tavon Austin participated in practice for the first time in weeks, taking Personalized Buccaneers Jersey part in the individual drills of Monday’s session.

One day after head coach Sean McVay said the Rams were expecting Custom Redskins Jersey Tavon Austin to play in the season opener against the Colts, the wide receive Men’s Nike Personalized Washington Redskins Elite Red Team Color Jersey for Sale was on the practice field, participating in his first session in weeks.

“He wasn’t a full participant. He might have been able to do that, but we’re going to be patient with him,” McVay said. “He went through the individual drills. He feels good. In terms of letting him go full-speed where he’s getting into some of those competitive periods that you just saw, that might be something that we discuss about doing tomorrow with him. But, he’s in a good place right now and we feel like if we continue to take those steps, he’ll be in great shape to be ready to roll for that Indy Personalized Titans Jersey game.”

“It felt good,” Austin said of practicing. “It made me Custom Buccaneers Jersey cherish it more, just being out there with the fellas, still learning.”

Preparing for this season has been a challenge for Austin, particularly with a new coaching staff. Austin did not participate in the majority of the Los Angeles’ offseason program after undergoing wrist surgery, and has been sidelined by a hamstring injury since the first week of training camp.

Given Austin’s limited practice time, the fifth-year wideout acknowledged he has some catching up to in order to be at his best on Sept. 10.

“I know I’ll probably be a little bit behind. But for the most part, my competitive-nature side, I feel like it’ll take over,” Austin said. “And that’s the main thing for
Men’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Light Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale me. But it is what it is. I’ve got to take it for how I look at it right now. And eventually I’ll catch up. I’ll be back on speed.”

There may be a silver lining to Austin’s situation. Because Austin hasn’t been able to participate in the preseason games, there’s no tape on how the Rams may deploy him in their offense.

“That’s one of the advantages that we do have, if you’re going to look at a positive of him not having played this preseason,” McVay said. “But one thing that we do know is, he’s a special player and we’ve got to find a way to get him touches and get him involved because in the past, when the ball is in his hands good things have happened. That’s what we’re going to look to continue to do with him moving forward into the season.”

Could Austin appearing in the backfield be part of those plans?

“You know, that’s where my love’s at.That’s where I’ve been at my whole life,” Austin said. “I’ve never been in the offense yet, so I don’t know what’s the plan for me. Just have to be ready, and when the ball gets in my hands, do what I do.”

While he’s mainly been an observer, Austin said he’s been able to envision himself in certain plays on the offense.

“I’ve definitely seen it a couple times, where I’ve seen a couple routes, or a couple plays that I feel like I definitely would do very good,” Austin said. “But it’s all about coach McVay and his staff — wherever they need me to play, I just need the ball in my hands eventually. From going from getting the ball a couple times a game
Women’s Nike Custom Made Tennessee Titans Elite Away White NFL Jersey Cheap every couple games, to whatever I get now — I’m definitely satisfied.”

One thing about the offense that’s changed since Austin was sidelined a few weeks ago is the acquisition of Sammy Watkins. While Austin had been mentioned as a potential downfield target for the club, he said he wasn’t put off at all by the trade.

“To be honest, it’s competition — a brotherly competition, that’s how it is,” Austin said. “And I called a spade a spade. I haven’t been here since the new coaches have gotten here — I only had four days in this offense. So I understand.

“Definitely doesn’t mean that they don’t still have plans for me. And that’s where I’m at with it right now. I’m going to take it day after day,” Austin continued. “I know what I’m capable of. I know the things I can do on the field will definitely still help this team.”

With Watkins and other additions like Robert Woods and
Youth Tampa Bay Buccaneers Nike Customized New Elite Red Team Color Jersey Cooper Kupp, Austin said he feels like this is the most talented receiving corps he’s played with since entering the league.

“I can honestly say, I feel like this is probably the best group — for various reasons,” Austin said. “You’ve got different type of receivers who can do different things. None of us really are alike in what we do. Everybody brings something different to the Custom Titans Jersey table. So it’s definitely the best receivers group I’ve been around. And it’s competitive, too. So that’s always good for the team.”

As for Austin’s other mainstay role, the wideout said he wasn’t sure if he’d be able to return punts for the season opener.

“But I’m doing everything I can to make some kind of difference in the game,” Austin said. “Probably know I won’t get too many offensive snaps, just because I haven’t been here. I’ve got to respect it. And that’s just what it is.

“But for the most part, if I can get up there and catch some punts, then that’s one of my specialties and that’s what I love to do,” he continued. “If I can do that, then, hey, I’m happy with that, too.”

 

Rams Sign DT Tyrunn Personalized Chargers Jersey Walker

Los Angeles has added depth on defense, signing DT Tyrunn Walker.

 

A few days before taking on the Chargers, the Rams have signed defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker.

Entering his sixth year Custom 49ers Jersey in the NFL, Walker was originally signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent Custom Nationals Jersey out of Tulsa. He spent the first three years of his career with New Orleans, where he recorded his 3.5 career sacks.

Walker spent Custom Chargers Jersey 2015 and 2016 with the Lions, where he was mainly used as a rotational player. He started eight games in 2016, including the Oct. 16 contest against the Rams. The previous year, Walker played Men’s Washington Nationals Custom Majestic Alternate Scarlet Flex Base Authentic Red Jersey the first four games of the season before a broken leg landed him on injured reserve.

The Rams had previously signed Walker in March, but released him in mid-June. He projects as a rotational player Personalized Nationals Jersey for Los Angeles.

As a corresponding roster move, the Rams have waived Personalized 49ers Jersey defensive tackle A.J. Jefferson.Men’s Nike Custom Made San Diego Chargers Elite Navy Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Sale.

How Has Watkins’ Personalized Chargers Jersey Presence Affected the Rams?

Has Sammy Watkins’ presence already affected the way opponents defend the Rams’ offense? And how might that change in the future?

Since arriving in Los Angeles on Aug. 12, wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been hard at work learning the Rams’ Personalized Chargers Jersey playbook and building chemistry with his new teammates.

While he had only been practicing for a few days, Watkins appeared in last week’s preseason game against the Raiders, making a pair of receptions for eight yards. One of those catches was a key third-down conversion, extending a scoring drive.

But given Watkins’ reputation as an elite talent and down-field threat, does his presence alone change how opponents defend the Rams? After all, Watkins was on the field for 34 snaps — just one fewer than fellow wideout Robert Woods and quarterback Jared Goff. So even without being the complete knowledge of the playbook, can Watkins create other opportunities Custom Chargers Jersey for players at different levels of the field?

“I think it certainly could be [the case]. You’d have to talk to the defensive coaches,” head coach Sean McVay Personalized Nationals Jersey said after Saturday’s game. “But what I do think is that when you look at what Sammy’s been able to do over the course of his career, he’s a guy we want to get involved. And it’s not exclusive to down the field — it’s underneath, it’s intermediate. We want to be multiple in the way we’re utilizing our personnel. But having a player of his caliber with his ability to create down the field, I think, Personalized 49ers Jersey certainly makes defensive coaches mindful of what he has done in the past.”

Wide receiver Cooper Kupp has worked with the starting offense in both preseason contests so far, and but said he wasn’t sure how much Oakland’s defense may have changed its approach based solely on Watkins.

“It’s two different teams, so just scheme-wise, I think the Raiders just play a different defense than the Cowboys do.
