The Seattle Seahawks aren't about to fix something that isn't broken. The Seahawks led the league in rushing last year, averaging a healthy 160 yards per game, thanks to the contributions of Chris Carson, Mike Davis and then-rookie Rashaad Penny, the team's first-round pick in 2018. Carson led the team in rushing with 1,151 yards on 247 yards, while Penny capped off his rookie season with 419 yards rushing on 85 carries. It remains to be seen if the Seahawks bring back Davis,
With great power comes great responsibility, and with great cap management comes a bunch of silly February takes that tilt your head to the side before you even realize you’re making that face. The Cowboys have a lot of money to spend this offseason and with that, there’s an abundance of people trying to figure out the best way to spend said dollars. Let’s get this out of the way first. No, Ezekiel Elliott is not holding the Dallas Cowboys back. Is handing the ball off to a r
The sound was memorable. Orleans Darkwa remembers it resembling a gunshot. It felt as if someone had kicked the back of his leg during the first drill of a rare Wednesday training session following a free-agent visit with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The former New York Giants running back looked down as if there was a problem with his cleats. These were his go-to pair. Perhaps they had reached an expiration date. If only Darkwa, 26, had been so fortunate. Instead, it was the Ac
LaDainian Tomlinson didn’t hesitate when asked if the Dallas Cowboys should give Ezekiel Elliott a contract extension this offseason. “Here’s the thing: Zeke has earned a new contract,” said Tomlinson, the Hall of Fame running back who is now an analyst on the NFL Network. “People talk about projections and how many more years can he [be productive]. It’s not about that. It’s about what the guy has earned. Zeke has led that team to two division titles in the last three years.
Sarina: How long have you been growing your hair for? Nickell: About four years. Growing in. Falling out. (Laughs) Sarina: Why did you grow it out? Nickell: Some people don’t know the real meaning of dreads, but it’s Rastafarian. It comes from the Rastafarian roots. It symbolizes peace and commitment. Sarina: What is it about you Florida boys that play football? Nickell: It’s something in the water. We are just different. We have a different set of skills. Speed is one of the
Three running backs were drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft. Over the weekend one of those players won offensive rookie of the year (Saquon Barkley) and another started and scored the only touchdown in the Super Bowl (Sony Michel). The third, Rashaad Penny of the Seattle Seahawks, had a quiet weekend and a mostly-quiet season. If you're looking for a snapshot of Penny's rookie season with the Seahawks, the last game would do. In the third quarter of their wild-c
And you thought Saints fans were mad before. The first controversial call of Super Bowl LIII involved Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman. On second-and-14 for the Patriots from their own 20-yard line, Tom Brady threw a short pass to Rex Burkhead, who was immediately greeted by Robey-Coleman for what would have been a 3-yard loss. Instead, Robey-Coleman was called for the 15-yard penalty. The refs, of course, called the wrong number, saying the flag was on Dante Fowler. Fan
Real Deal Robey and Woody, more commonly referred to as slot cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman and wide receiver Robert Woods, have practically grown up together in their football careers. The two have spent the last nine years together, uniting from across the country at USC. They have since bounced from coast to coast together — Los Angeles to Buffalo back to Los Angeles — connected by school, football and family tragedy. Robey-Coleman’s mother, Maxine, died not long after h
