Now that quarterback Josh Allen is under contract [url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/johnny-townsend-jersey-cheap]Johnny Townsend Jersey[/url] , the big question remaining is how long it will be before the Buffalo Bills' rookie first-round draft pick takes over the starting job.
The Bills signed Allen to a four-year contract on Wednesday, a day before they open training camp in the Rochester suburbs.
Allen is the heir-apparent starter after Buffalo traded up five spots to select the Wyoming player with the seventh pick in the draft. He was the third quarterback taken in April, and the first ever selected by Buffalo among the top 10 picks in the draft order.
The 22-year-old still has plenty of work ahead to establish himself, and coach Sean McDermott said in June that he has no intention of rushing the quarterback's development.
"It's about bringing him along the right way," McDermott said. "We're not going to put him out there unless we feel like he's ready."
Allen spent all but the final week of the Bills spring minicamps serving as the third-string quarterback, while free-agent addition AJ McCarron and returning backup Nathan Peterman split time with the starters.
At 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds, Allen is a raw but strong-armed and athletic quarterback. He was a two-year starter at Wyoming, where he completed 365 of 649 passes for 5,066 yards with 44 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.
The Bills are again shuffling starters after Tyrod Taylor was traded to Cleveland in March despite helping Buffalo to a 9-7 finish and ending a 17-year playoff drought.
Running back LeSean McCoy was among the players to report Wednesday for the start of camp, team spokesman Derek Boyko told The Associated Press.
McCoy's status was unclear after he was accused of playing a role in his ex-girlfriend being bloodied during a home invasion two weeks ago at a house the running back owns in the Atlanta suburbs.
McCoy denied any involvement in the home invasion and other allegations posted on social media by a woman who appeared to be a friend of his ex-girlfriend.
The Bills issued a statement saying they were gathering information and had been in contact with McCoy and the NFL. The league said it was reviewing the matter.
The Bills placed receiver Zay Jones on the active/non-football injury list. The second-year player had knee surgery in May [url=http://www.buccaneerscheapstore.com/william-gholston-jersey-cheap]William Gholston Jersey[/url] , which forced him to miss all of the team's spring sessions.
Jones is allowed to work out individually, but is not allowed to practice with the team until the Bills remove him from the list.
Buffalo's second-round draft pick in 2017, Jones also had surgery in January for a shoulder injury, which had nagged him for most of his rookie season.
The Bills also released defensive tackle Tenny Palepoi. He signed with Buffalo in April after spending three seasons with the Chargers.
All-Pro safety Kevin Byard believes it doesn’t get much better for he and his Titans teammates: First learning from defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau and now Dean Pees.
”Just having two legends as coaches on the defense, man, I was blessed,” Byard said.
Now, what the Titans’ defense with look like under Pees, that remains somewhat a mystery. Neither Pees nor the Titans are sharing many, if any [url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/martavis-bryant-jersey-cheap]Martavis Bryant Jersey[/url] , details right now. Oh, there’s been talk of showing different looks on the defensive line and being consistent in coverages.
But that’s about as much as Pees is willing to share.
”I’d like to be more little more precise, but I really don’t want to talk about scheme particularly and what we’re doing,” Pees said Wednesday when asked about coverage consistency.
The Titans made a change from Mike Mularkey to first-timer Mike Vrabel as head coach in January mostly to get more production from an offense led by young quarterback Marcus Mariota. Even though the Titans were the AFC’s best against the run and allowed a league-fewest five touchdowns rushing and tied for fifth in sacks, they still have plenty of room for improvement on defense.
Maybe because the Titans were so good against the run, they faced more passes than any other defense in the NFL. They also gave up the most first downs through the air last season. The Titans ranked 25th defending the pass, giving up 239.3 yards per game, and 17th in points allowed. Despite Byard intercepting eight passes, Tennessee finished with 12 interceptions overall – tied for 18th in the league.
With Pees last season, Baltimore ranked 12th in yards allowed per game. The Ravens led the NFL with 22 interceptions and also tied for 10th against the pass giving up 213.8 yards per game.
Pees [url=http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/tavon-young-jersey-cheap]Tavon Young Jersey[/url] , 68, has spent the last 14 of his 45 years as a coach in the NFL. But he hasn’t talked with LeBeau, someone he’s always admired and wanted to have a relationship with as a coach. The new Titans coordinator has been busy learning his new players and installing his defensive schemes with a little more than third installed as of Wednesday.
Outside linebacker Derrick Morgan, now on his fifth head-coach with this franchise, said the defense remains primarily a 3-4 base. Each coach uses different language to describe plays, and Morgan said learning that is the biggest challenge.
”Once we get across that barrier and kind of on the same communication lines, I think we’ll be fine,” Morgan said. ”It’s a different scheme from what LeBeau ran here, but you know it’s football at the end of the day. So you’ve just got to get the concepts, get the philosophy and understand what we’re trying to accomplish on the field.”
Byard echoed Morgan’s comments.
”We’re not creating a new Cover 2 or Cover 3 or anything like that [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/marquise-goodwin-jersey-cheap]Marquise Goodwin Jersey[/url] ,” Byard said. ”It’s just we’re trying to execute at a high level man. DP just brought a great defense, and I think we’re trying to execute it at a high level.”
Titans drafted linebackers Rashaan Evans and Harold Landry , additions linebacker Brian Orakpo welcomes. Pees has a reputation for being creative in trying to free up pass rushers to get to the quarterback, and the four-time Pro Bowl linebacker said they’ve already seen some of that.
”Guys getting freed up, guys getting one-on-ones,” Orakpo said. ”You see me and Morgan flip-flopping that you’re normally not used to seeing. Just trying to get advantages across the board. We’re just going to keep taking it day by day and see what happens.”
After all, the Titans’ season doesn’t start until Sept. 9 in Miami.
Notes: Vrabel said he told the Titans on Wednesday morning that the team and controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk will support players on making a decision on the national anthem when the time comes. Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker said that’s not a decision that has to be made until September.
