Lamar Jackson finds himself on a Ravens roster with a 33-year-old Joe Flacco, a former Super Bowl MVP who averaged a career-low 5.7 yards per attempt in 2017, represents nearly $25 million dollars on Baltimore’s cap in 2018 and would save the team $10 million if he’s released before next season.
From the start of the reason through early November, Kaepernick appeared in five games and went 5 of 9 for 89 yards as a passer. He was sacked twice for a total loss of 17 yards and carried the football 13 times for 111 yards with two rushing touchdowns. That means, on his 24 plays as an offensive feature, Kaepernick’s net contributions were 183 yards with a pair of scores, which equates to a robust 7.6 yards per play.
After that, the rest is history.
Rodgers won’t play forever, and Kizer doesn’t need to be rushed onto the field. Nuturing an inexperienced arm talent with long-term potential for a fairly cheap price (the trade with Cleveland) makes this a sneaky high-ceiling setup.
Michael Griffin is making one last trip to Nashville as a professional football player.
The 33-year-old safety is signing a one-day contract Monday to retire as a member of the Tennessee Titans , the team announced in a media advisory Sunday.
Drafted 19th overall by the Titans in 2007, the Texas product appeared in two Pro Bowls and was named a second-team All-Pro in 2010. Griffin recorded 108 tackles, 12 passes defensed, four interceptions and two forced fumbles as part of a defense that included cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan, Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner , and safety Chris Hope.
Griffin last played in 2016 with the Carolina Panthers , appearing in 13 games (six starts) and recording 40 tackles. For his career, he logged 803 tackles, 7.0 sacks, 60 passes defensed, 25 interceptions (one returned for a touchdown in 2008) and 11 forced fumbles.
