Titans, Bucs working out plans for joint practices this summer
Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston and Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota were the top two picks in the 2015 NFL draft and they’ll get a chance to meet up before their fourth seasons get underway.
The Buccaneers and Titans are set to play a preseason game on August 18th and the two teams are working out the details of joint practices that would take place in Tennessee before that contest. Titans coach Mike Vrabel said the teams are trying to work through those dates and what those practices may look like ahead of any formal announcement.
I’m sure we haven’t made an official announcement, but those are things that I think our players enjoy, Vrabel said, via the Tennessean. I think we can improve on, to see where we’re at against another team, situationally, how they play coverage, how we match up against maybe their receivers or how we rush against their line as opposed to seeing the same faces all the time.
After signing a two-year deal with the Canadian club earlier this month, the Heisman Trophy winner maintains he is putting football first, with his tumultuous past far in the rear-view mirror.
Eli, he’s comfortable now, safety Landon Collins said of Apple. He’s got a lot of stress off his shoulders and you can see it. He’s growing up, he’s doing his thing and playing great ball.
TE Garrett Dickerson, a rookie tight end from Northwestern who attended the Giants’ rookie camp on a tryout basis, was signed.
We thought that in really a short period of time he showed us that he was smart and he had instincts, runs around well, he catches the ball and we’re just trying to keep reshaping the 90-man roster as we get ready for training camp, Shurmur said. … Three players were waived: WR Keeon Johnson, DB Mike Jones and DB Jeremiah McKinnon.
The Giants hired Mark Koncz to the new position of director of player personnel. General manager Dave Gettleman had brought Koncz in this offseason as a consultant. The two worked together with the Panthers. Koncz will aid the college and NFL personnel departments.
