Can Broncos Unlock MVP Level Russell Wilson?

As the Broncos build their first season around their new franchise quarterback, starting with training camp opening tomorrow, Russell Wilson’s remarkable streak in 2020 doesn’t seem like a distant relic of the past, but rather a living, breathing possibility of what he is is could be in Denver during his first season.

So what does it take to replicate what Wilson did and extrapolate it to the full season?

After seeing each of the 318 snaps Wilson made during that stretch, from the sack in the first game, which he made in the first set and overcame with a touchdown drive, to the end zone pass to DK Metcalf, who had a comeback win a week 5 sealed against the Vikings. Here are five thoughts from the athlete‘s Nick Kosmider on what the Broncos should prioritize as they try to get the best out of Wilson in 2022

Positivity is the name of the game for the Jets

Quinnen Williams, wearing a shirt that read “LUXURY,” was the first to speak at the Jets facility on the day of the report.

The luxury of laughter.

Everyone has it on the first day of training camp when hope is eternal and optimism runs high. This is the atmosphere around the jets, top to bottom.

Speak to anyone in the front office, on the coaching staff or on the squad, and they’ll tell you things haven’t been this way in a long time. It’s coach Robert Saleh’s second season, general manager Joe Douglas’ fourth, and they’re all heading in the same direction.

Maybe that’s progress.

“It feels… more positive,” Williams said.

Another P-word that keeps popping up: potential.

One more thing: playoffs.

The 49ers are poised to see Trey Lance’s potential

The 49ers continue to buy Jimmy Garoppolo, who was rehabilitating after shoulder surgery during the offseason, for a trade while openly switching to Trey Lance as a starter.

The spring offseason program was the first major step in a process that will be in full swing Wednesday when the 49ers hold their first practice at training camp.

For the first time since that win over Houston seven months ago, Lance has the chance to operate with the 49ers’ entire roster of first-team players.

The biggest cowboy takeaways

Before answering any questions, there were a few issues Jerry Jones wanted to address.

“I haven’t spoken to you in a long time,” he said. “I have some stuff stored up here.”

The Cowboys owner and general manager used the first nine minutes of the team’s annual press conference to kick off training camp and share his thoughts on three issues, including head coach Mike McCarthy’s job security.

Bucs add Jones to bolster Brady’s elite receiver depth

To understand why signing seven-time Pro Bowler Julio Jones makes sense, you have to go back to January.

Before the playoffs, the Bucs had a ridiculous losing streak at receiver — Antonio Brown shot through mid-game, Chris Godwin lost a cruciate ligament injury, then substitutes Cyril Grayson and Breshad Perriman were also lost to injury.

In the playoff loss to the Rams, Brady had six goals for Scotty Miller, who had caught five passes all of the regular season. In two playoff games, Brady had 19 passes to receivers not named Evans, and they conceded just 96 yards and zero touchdowns from those passes.

So adding Jones means adding another layer of insulation against injury, even if they’re already paying at least $10 million a year to three other receivers.

The artist formerly known as Darius

The joy was gone.

Shaquille Leonard (whom you used to know as Darius; more on that later) was in pain — physically with an ankle injury that haunted him all season, emotionally bruised as family members back home in South Carolina dealt with their own health issues, not among the Mention loss of a cousin.

“I wasn’t in the right mental space to hold everyone accountable,” Leonard said after the Colts’ inglorious conclusion to the 2021 season. “I felt like I let the team down on that in the last two games… When you feel like you have to keep your personal life in the shadows because of your football, it eats you up. I fell in love with the game. I didn’t enjoy it anymore.”

Bucs signs Julio Jones for 1 year: source

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers sign receiver Julio Jones, a source confirms the athlete Tuesday.

The Titans released Jones in March after spending a season with the franchise.

Jones caught 31 passes for 434 yards and a touchdown in the 10 games he played for Tennessee and struggled with injuries throughout the season. He joined the Titans via a trade with the Falcons prior to the start of the 2021 season.

Tennessee sent Atlanta two draft picks, including a 2022 second-round pick, in exchange for the WR last June.

Falcons, Lindstrom have not discussed the extension

The Falcons have not discussed a potential contract extension with RG Chris Lindstrom, he said Tuesday.

“I really don’t think about it,” he said. “I love the Falcons. I’d like to be here forever.” Lindstrom, who didn’t allow himself a layoff last season, is entering the fourth year of a five-year contract.

His salary will increase to $13.2 million (up from $4.7) next season because Atlanta took his option.
