Texans worked out quarterback Lamar Jackson

Most “teams having private workout for draftable quarterback” stories are fairly formulaic. A team with a high pick and an obvious need at quarterback will work out all the top prospects, so the individual permutations of “this guy/that team” are less important than the bigger picture.

This one is slightly different.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Texans had a workout with Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson yesterday.

The only other quarterback on the roster at the moment is Taylor Heinicke, so they’re going to have to find a backup plan at some point. That they’re looking at a rookie is interesting to file away.

After posting sub-standard receiving numbers in each of the last three seasons and averaging a career-low 12.1 yards per catch in 2017, Bryant, who was set to make $12.5 million in salary this season, no longer deserves to be paid like one of the NFL’s elite wideouts.

He’s far from a bum, though. Even the diminished Cheap Gaa Jerseys version of Bryant we saw last season still managed to catch 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns — leading the Cowboys in all three categories — and he won’t turn 30 until November. He might never again be the 1,200-yard receiver he was from 2012 to 2014, but he still can be an above-average offensive weapon.

It’s not hard to envision Bryant joining the Patriots, teaming up with Tom Brady and enjoying a Randy Moss-esque late-career renaissance. He’d replace Brandin Cooks as the team’s primary outside threat, and at his best, he’s better than any wideout on New England’s roster.

By the end of his five innings of work, Verlander had already Cheap Dri Fit Jerseys thrown 104 pitches.You already know what’s going to happen.He has never missed bats, but last year saw his strikeout rate plummet while he allowed a bunch of extra homers.

Reggie Wayne picks a QB other than Luck or Manning as hardest passer

Congratulations are in order for Curtis Painter. On Tuesday, Reggie Wayne gave him an unofficial award that pertains to playing quarterback.

When Wayne was asked about who threw the hardest passes, he didn't name Andrew Luck or Peyton Manning (before his arm stopped functioning like a normal arm last year). He also didn't name Tom Brady, who threw to Wayne this past summer during Patriots training camp. Instead, Wayne chose Curtis Painter.

It's 2016, and we're talking about Curtis Painter.
