Malcolm Jenkins hangs up his cleats

Winner of the Super Bowl with the Saints then the Eagles, safety star Malcolm Jenkins announced his retirement at the age of 34. Considered one of the Iron men of the NFL with a series of 133 games played in a row before the Covid-19 put an end to it.

Its consistency has allowed it to earn a place on the franchise books of Philadelphia and New Orleans. He finished second in both franchises in number of defensive touchdowns.

The triple Pro Bowler was far from having become useless on the field. For the Saints last year, he compiled 79 tackles, 1 interception and 1 forced fumble while playing more snaps than any other Saints defenseman.

Stefon Diggs’ extension not guaranteed

The Bills’ star receiver will be free at the end of next season. But for all that it is a message of patience that the GM of Buffalo gave to the media.

“We will watch this. We will assess our possibilities,” added Beane. “There is a salary cap, we have to make everything adapt to that and make it work. I’d love to write them all a check for exactly what I think they’re worth or what they’ve done, but sometimes you have to make tough decisions. »

Diggs is therefore among these difficult decisions even if he remains on the best two seasons of his career at Buffalo.

Scott Fitterer (Panthers): “We need a quarterback”

Sam Darnold (QB) is still there, but it’s a little clearer every day that he isn’t really seen as the solution anymore. The proof with the last words of Scott Fitterer, the manager of the Panthers, from the official website of the franchise.

“It will be interesting (the Draft) because the tackles will be the best players available. But we need a quarterback, and at some point you have to give it a shot, especially in the Top 10. We hate having to force ourselves, because when you force things, you can make a mistake. It’s a unique crop of quarterbacks, because there isn’t a clear number 1, or number two or three. Who is the seasoned starter who can come and play for you? This will be the conversation in the coming month: quarterback or left tackle? »

Tyreek Hill will return punts to the Dolphins

A drill specialist as a rookie, Tyreek Hill (WR, Dolphins) had given up on returning punts because of his importance in attacking Andy Reid. But the supersonic receiver would like to return to his origins as he has signified to the front office. That’s what Chris Grier told the Palm Beach Post.

“Tyreek, the first thing he said was, ‘I want to make sure I’m there, getting some punt returns every game. »

In his first season, he also led the league in average yards returned and touchdowns on punt return.

The Lions would have liked not to be able to host Hard Knocks

Chosen almost by default by production, the Lions will host Hard Knocks during the preseason. If this decision does not necessarily please those concerned, they have chosen to do good against bad luck, like their president, Ron Woods.

 » We are impatient. We would have preferred not to be eligible for Hard Knocks, but since we are, we are going to enjoy it and put on a good show for our fans and hopefully football fans around the world.”

Matt Eferblus (DC, Bears) “Trading Khalil Mack is good for us in the long run”

Face of the Chicago franchise since it brought him from the Raiders at all costs, Khalil Mack (DE, Chargers) is no more. But for the defensive coordinator of the Bears, do not worry. That’s what he told ESPN.

“We just thought about what was best for the organization going forward, looking at the big picture. This exchange will be good for us in the long run.”

For him, it’s proof that the Bears have grown.

“When I was younger, I couldn’t see beyond the end of my nose. But now more needs to be done. »

Chicago is showing up for the moment with a trio of pass rushers with a less stellar reputation than Khalil Mack with Robert Quinn, Trevis Gipson and newcomer Al-Quadin Muhammad. A trio of blue collars who will try to make Mack Daddy forget in Illinois.
