Unfortunately for Cam, he just hasnt gotten the notoriety that the others get, but theres no doubt hes underrated and underappreciated for what he does, without question.Golic added though that whether or not the media gives Jordan his due, you can be assured hes respected by those who have to play across from him.Ive never been in a position to be that good, Golic said. Im sure you get bummed out personally saying, Wait a minute. Im putting up numbers that these guys are putting up, and Im not getting the recognition for it. But players know. Players understand whats going out on the field. So from his peers, I think they understand what kind of ball-player he is.You can hear Golics full appearance on Sports Talk by clicking the podcast link.

Sean Payton anxious to see Brees’ deep ball
08/05/2020 2:18pm

Sean Payton anxious to see Brees deep ball and feels Winstons fitting in well August 5, 2020 Steve Geller var md new MobileDetectwindow.navigator.userAgentif md.mobile functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowDrew Brees is entering year 20 in the NFL and while the quarterback has never been known for having a big arm, pin-point accuracy will be what gets him into the Pro Football Hall-of-Fame. In fact, Brees has completed just one pass over 35 yards since 2017, but appears determined to change that this year.Being forced to train mostly at home made Brees switch up his workout regimen and even changed his goals. This offseason he came up with wanting to be able to unleash a 60-yard-pass while working with throwing Coach Tom House.Here is footage of drewbrees putting the work in in his backyard pic.twitter.com/A19K6cQb1Z Tom House tomhousesports August 1, 2020 Brees has not gone into too much detail as to why his focus has been throwing deep, but statistics will tell you that deeper attempts have gone down.Listen, if the opportunities are there, I let it fly, Brees said recently. And if its not, then you check it down and live to play another day. I feel like perhaps in years past we had more opportunities down the field than maybe have presented themselves over the last two years. I dont think its our lack of being able to do it or lack of calling the plays for it. Its just hit or miss at times, and then theres a risk-reward to it as well.Head coach Sean Payton understands that the 41-year-old Brees is trying to fight father-time as much as he can, but, doesnt feel the deep ball has been something that has been missing from the Black & Golds offense.I dont know that there was this consensus coming off of one season, explained Payton on Brees throwing deep. I think gradually, where he is at, obviously you are combating that age and you are combating some of the changes both physically and then mentally. Im anxious to see, as we get into these practices, some of the things that hes worked on.How about the status or former Heisman Trophy winner and 2015s top overall pick Jamies Winston. The Saints havent been able to do much actual football work yet, but the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers transition to Black & Gold has been going alright. Hes in good shape. Hes lost weight, hes lean. Hes not afraid to work, hes doing well, and hes fit in well, Payton said. Again, were just into this thing. All last week we were COVID testing, so he COVID tested well last week too. All Saints players have tested well thus far. There have been no positiveresults to begin training camp.

NFL Offensive One-Season Wonders for Every Team Since 1980
08/05/2020 12:22pm

Brian Bahr /Allsport via Getty Images NFL Offensive One-Season Wonders for Every Team Since 1980 Jordan Cohn August 5, 2020 Categories: NFL var md new MobileDetectwindow.navigator.userAgentif md.mobile functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowvar md new MobileDetectwindow.navigator.userAgentif md.mobile functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowNFL players can come out of nowhere to make phenomenal plays in clutch moments of a game, forever giving them a cult following. Guys can dominate for entire games out of the blue, too, only to go back to their usual role as a backup.But can guys really do it for an entire year without having success in any other season Apparently, they can. And apparently, it happens more often than I thought it would have.Weve looked at the guys who did it throughout MLB history, for which there were multiple contenders for all 30 teams, and the 32 NFL squads are no different.For every team there are several candidates, except for in the rare cases when one guy sticks out above all the others in such an obvious and undebatable way. One way I narrowed down the choices a little bit was by limiting the selection to the past 40 years, though that still leaves a humongous group to choose from.Without further ado, lets look at some of the strangest outliers for each NFL team since 1980.All stats retrieved from Pro Football Reference.LaMont Jordan celebrates for the Raiders. Photo credit Robert B. Stanton/NFLPhotoLibraryAFC WestDenver Broncos - Tim Tebow, 20117-4, 1,729 passing yards, 12 TDs, 6 INT, 660 rushing yards, 6 Rushing TDs, 5.4 y/aGaston Green and Olandis Gary started and ended the 1990s with respective breakout 1,000-yard rushing seasons, never to be heard from in the same capacity again. But the most obvious name to roll with here is Tim Tebow, whose most memorable performance came not in the regular season but against the Steelers in the the playoffs 316 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INT, 50 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD.Kansas City Chiefs - Joe Delaney, 19811,121 rushing yards, 3 rushing TDs, 4.8 y/a, 22 receptions, 246 receiving yardsSpencer Ware was one of many running backs involved in the Chiefs carousel of rushers, including Jamaal Charles, Knile Davis, Charcandrick West, Kareem Hunt and others throughout the 2010s. His 1,338 yards from scrimmage, to go along with 5 touchdowns, marked the only time in his career he ever even broke 500 yards from scrimmage. But the late Joe Delaneys 1981 season was even better, and his inspirational quality of helping others ultimately ended a life and career that was destined to be very successful in 1983.Los Angeles Chargers - Danario Alexander, 201237 receptions, 658 yards, 7 TDsAlexander was a beast in 2012 its as simple as that. He posted the above stat line in only 10 games, meaning a full 16-game slate would, at this rate, have resulted in 1,053 yards and 10 touchdowns. Unfortunately, a torn ACL in the 2013 preseason marked the end of Alexanders burgeoning NFL career.Las Vegas/Oakland Raiders - LaMont Jordan, 20051,025 rushing yards, 9 rushing TDs, 3.8 y/a, 70 receptions, 563 receiving yards, 2 receiving TDsJordan finished in the top 10 in yards from scrimmage and rushing touchdowns in 2005, achieving totals it had taken him the three previous years combined to accumulate. His unstoppable Week 7 performance -- 122 rushing yards, three touchdowns, 40 receiving yards -- earned him the AFC Player of the Week award.Steve Slaton enjoyed a brief stint of success with the Texans. Photo credit Stephen Dunn/Getty ImagesAFC SouthHouston Texans - Steve Slaton, 20081,282 rushing yards, 9 rushing TDs, 4.8 y/a, 50 receptions, 377 receiving yards, 1 receiving TDSlaton was a solid candidate for Offensive Rookie of the Year in a strong group of talented young players, including eventual winner Matt Ryan -- who actually won by a large margin -- and Bears RB Matt Forte. But while those two went on to experience long-term success, Slaton dealt with fumbling trouble and was benched and eventually placed on IR the following season. He last played in the 2011 season.Indianapolis Colts - Brandon Stokley, 200468 receptions, 1,077 yards, 10 TDsStokley was on the receiving end of some pretty cool milestones, including the then-record 49th single-season touchdown from Peyton Manning in 2004. That same year, he joined Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison as the first trio of receivers with 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns, a feat Manning couldnt even repeat in 2013 when he threw for 5,477 yards and 55 TDs -- though he did have four double-digit touchdown receivers.Jacksonville Jaguars - Allen Hurns, 201564 receptions, 1,031 yards, 10 TDsHurns still has a chance to make an impact in his NFL career, though he decided to opt out of the 2020 NFL season. But the current Dolphins wideout likely reached his peak at age 24, when he formed a deadly duo with Allen Robinson 1,400 yards, 14 TDs in Blake Bortles high-volume passing attack.Tennessee Titans - Kendall Wright, 201394 receptions, 1,079 yards, 2 TDsWright was nothing if not consistent in Tennessee, finishing among the teams most reliable wide receivers year after year in the 2010s. But one season was unlike the others, as 2013 marked the only time he ever surpassed 65 catches or 750 receiving yards, and he was last on the field in 2017 for the Bears.Peyton Hillis rumbled his way onto a Madden cover for the Browns. Photo credit Matt Sullivan/Getty ImagesAFC NorthBaltimore Ravens - Justin Forsett, 20141,266 rushing yards, 8 rushing TDs, 5.4 y/a, 44 receptions, 263 receiving yardsThe late Michael Jackson enjoyed a change of scenery after spending time in Cleveland with Bill Belichick, and he showcased all his untapped potential in his first year with the Ravens 76 receptions, 1,201 yards and a league-high 14 touchdowns. But his breakout wasnt quite as unforeseen as that of Justin Forsett, considering the journeyman running back had spent time on four teams in six seasons before stopping in Baltimore and going off. However, his next season was underwhelming 641 yards, two TDs and he last played in 2016.Cincinnati Bengals - Ickey Woods, 19881,066 rushing yards, 15 rushing TDs, 5.3 y/a, 21 receptions, 199 receiving yardsHarold Green was a force to be reckoned with in 1992, picking up a Pro Bowl nod after rushing for 1,170 yards -- a total he never again came close to -- and picking up an additional 214 through the air. But you cant pick against Ickey Woods, best remembered for his Ickey Shuffle, which we saw frequently in 1988. Unfortunately, injuries prevented us from seeing the memorable celebration much more.Cleveland Browns - Peyton Hillis, 20101,177 rushing yards, 11 rushing TDs, 4.4 y/a, 61 receptions, 477 receiving yards, 2 receiving TDsTight ends Jordan Cameron 80 receptions, 917 yards, seven touchdowns in 2013 and Gary Barnidge 79 receptions, 1,043 yards, nine TDs in 2015 are two one-season wonders for the Cleveland Browns, a franchise that offers many examples of this NFL phenomenon. However, one stands alone as so outrageously random and anomalous -- complete with a Madden cover -- that it would feel wrong to go any other direction. Of course, Jerome Harrisons single-game performance is among the most odd breakouts in NFL history, but the entire 2010 season from Hillis was completely out of the blue following his 54-yard 2009, and the rest of his career was ineffective to the point where his last game was in 2014.Pittsburgh Steelers - Barry Foster, 19921,690 rushing yards, 11 rushing TDs, 4.3 y/a, 36 receptions, 344 receiving yardsThe Steelers were smart to transition Foster to a running back role as opposed to his special teams role from early in his career, especially given the fact that he quickly became a Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro member. He rushed for fewer than 100 yards in only four games, which made him a co-owner of the NFL record until Barry Sanders rushed for 100 or more yards in 14 of his 16 1997 games.Robert Edwards burst onto the scene in 1998 but had his career cut short by a scary injury. Photo credit Matthew Stockman/Allsport via Getty ImagesAFC EastBuffalo Bills - C.J. Spiller, 20121,244 rushing yards, 6 rushing TDs, 6.0 y/a, 43 receptions, 459 receiving yards, 2 receiving TDsThe two-headed running back corps of Spiller and Fred Jackson was great for everyone, except for C.J. Spiller fantasy owners. Still, 2012 proved to be a year in which the Bills and fantasy teams could expect Spiller to carry the load on his shoulders and use his dazzling speed and shiftiness to produce an amazing 6.0 yards per carry. Though he surpassed 900 yards on the ground the next season, too, his scoring and receiving production fell way off, and he spent 2014 through 2017 with five different teams and barely any role.Miami Dolphins - Jay Ajayi, 20161,272 rushing yards, 8 rushing TDs, 4.9 y/a, 27 receptions, 151 receiving yardsLamar Smith had racked up 1,948 yards over six seasons before joining the Dolphins in 2000, so its safe to say that no one foresaw his 1,139-yard, 14 touchdown breakout that season. But he was a high-volume running back whose efficiency totals -- 3.7 y/a and 3.1 y/a in his two years with Miami -- were less than stellar. Ajayi, on the other hand, was an extremely efficient running back, but was sent to Philadelphia in the middle of the 2017 season and has never quite been able to reach full health since 2016. When we last heard from him, he had joined the Philadelphia Union, an MLS squad, as their professional gamer.New England Patriots - Robert Edwards, 19981,115 rushing yards, 9 rushing TDs, 3.8 y/a, 35 receptions, 331 receiving yards, 3 receiving TDsJonas Gray may be the most memorable on the list of the one-game wonders that I wrote about here, but it was another running back whose full season of work sticks out as the most memorable. Edwards was selected by the Pats as a first-round pick and performed as such, but his career and life was flipped upside-down early in his New England stint. A devastating leg injury practically left his left knee in bits and pieces, nearly requiring the limb to be amputated. He miraculously returned in 2002, appearing as a backup for the Dolphins.New York Jets - Richie Anderson, 200088 receptions, 853 receiving yards, 2 receiving TDs, 63 rushing yardsAnderson paced the NFL and set the Jets franchise record for most receiving yards from a running back in 2000, which was good enough to earn him the starting fullback spot on the Pro Bowl roster that year. He was a consistent receiver from the backfield from then on, but he never quite lived up to those lofty totals after that point.Dieter Brock led the Rams to seven straight victories as a 34-year-old rookie. Photo credit George Rose/Getty ImagesNFC WestArizona Cardinals - Steve Breaston, 200877 receptions, 1,006 yards, 3 TDsDavid Boston was close to being my selection here despite more than just one good season. Its just that his 2001 All-Pro campaign 98 receptions, eight touchdowns and a league-best 1,598 receiving yards was heads and shoulders more productive than any other season in his brief NFL career. However, Steve Breaston is the guy here, as he only surpassed 1,000 yards once in his NFL career and failed to ever surpass 800 outside of 2008, the year referenced above in which he, Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin became the fifth 1,000-yard receiving trio in NFL history. He was out of the NFL after the 2012 season.Los Angeles Rams - Dieter Brock, 1985 and Charles White, 1987Brock: 11-4, 2,658 yards, 16 TD, 13 INT White: 1,374 rushing yards, 11 TDs, 4.2 y/a, 23 receptions, 121 receiving yardsIt was too hard for me to choose just one here. Brock, a former CFL superstar, signed with the Rams as a 34-year-old rookie and led the team to a ton of success, including seven straight victories out of the gate and a fair share of franchise rookie records. He wouldnt play another NFL snap after an injury in the 1986 preseason.White joined the Rams the season after, bouncing back from struggles in Cleveland and winning the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award after a phenomenal showing.San Francisco 49ers - Marquise Goodwin, 201756 receptions, 962 yards, 2 receiving TDsGoodwin joined the Eagles and was expected to contribute as a deep threat, but he opted out of the season for family reasons. Still, if hes able to replicate his 2017 success as a deep threat in Philadelphia, hell remove himself from this list and make Eagles fans very, very happy.Seattle Seahawks - Derrick Fenner, 1990859 rushing yards, 14 rushing TDs, 4.0 y/a, 17 receptions, 143 receiving yards, 1 receiving TDA pair of Derricks are worth noting here, as Derrick Mayes 829 yards and 10 touchdowns in 1999 were more than he was able to accomplish in three years as a Packer, and he was cut by the Seahawks as early as 2001. But Derrick Fenners breakout was a bit more notable, whose tumultuous NFL career began under the shadow of a faulty murder charge and a departure from UNC over guilty charges of cocaine possession. Still, he managed to succeed in the NFL early, leading the league in touchdowns in 1990 before dwindling into obscurity for years to come.Steve Beuerlein was nothing short of phenomenal in 1999. Photo credit Craig Jones /Allsport via Getty ImagesNFC SouthAtlanta Falcons - John Settle, 19881,024 rushing yards, 7 rushing TDs, 4.4 y/a, 68 receptions, 570 receiving yards, 1 receiving TDHarry Douglas put up 1,067 yards out of absolutely nowhere in 2013, a statistic boosted due to Julio Jones season-ending injury during Week 5. And, going back earlier, Erric Pegram exploded for 1,185 rushing yards in 1993 before a follow-up effort of 358 yards. But the biggest Atlanta one-season wonder has to be John Settle, who was selected for the Pro Bowl after bowling over defenders for a ton of yards on the ground and through the air. His 1988 effort also marked the first time in history an undrafted running back exceeded 1,000 rushing yards, a feat accomplished recently by Philip Lindsay of the Broncos.Carolina Panthers - Steve Beuerlein, 19998-8, 4,436 yards, 36 TDs, 15 INT, 124 rushing yards, 2 rushing TDs, 4.6 y/aPatrick Jeffers, who put up a stat line of 63 receptions, 1,082 yards and 12 TDs in 1999, is certainly a one-season wonder for the Panthers. But his success would not have been possible had it not been for the tremendous QB play of Steve Beuerlein, who came out of nowhere and shattered his previous career-highs in yards thrown for 3,164, passing touchdowns 18 and several other categories. His follow-up season was merely average, as the then-35-year-old threw 19 touchdowns to 18 interceptions in 2000.New Orleans Saints - Willie Jackson, 200181 receptions, 1,046 yards, 5 TDsA 589-yard debut campaign was a promising start for Jackson in 1995, but years of 486, 206 and 165 yards followed. Thus, when he began to turn things around with the Saints in 2000 to the tune of 523 yards and six touchdowns, it was an encouraging sight. But it didnt hint that Jackson would explode like he did in 2001. Fun fact: Jackson ranks second all-time, tied with Matt Forte and Terance Mathis, with six two-point conversions made in his career.Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Michael Clayton, 200480 receptions, 1,193 yards, 7 TDsThere are a ton of options here: Bruce Hill in 1988, Shaun King in 2000, Cadillac Williams in 2005, Earnest Graham in 2007. But Michael Claytons explosive 2004 was probably the most anomalous of all of these guys single-season breakout performances, as he never again reached 500 receiving yards and was a bust considering his first-round value.Marcus Robinson followed up his 1998 NFL Europe MVP season with an awesome 1999.

But injuries werent what caused Scott Mitchells 1995 season to be an unexpected one he just wasnt very good, otherwise, only posting one other season with more touchdowns than turnovers.Chicago Bears - Marcus Robinson, 199984 receptions, 1,400 yards, 9 TDsThe late Rashaan Salaam burst onto the scene in 1995, with 1,074 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, but struggled with ball security and only lasted in Chicago for two more seasons. Theres also quarterback Erik Kramer, who came into that same 1995 season with 35 passing touchdowns and 32 interceptions in his career before leading the Bears to a 9-7 record with 29 TDs and 10 INT. But its Marcus Robinson, the 1998 NFL Europe MVP and one of three Chicago receivers ever to total 1,400 yards in a season along with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery who gets the nod here. Robinson recorded only 738 yards the following season and never again broke the 700-yard barrier in his nine-year career.Green Bay Packers - Don Majkowski, 198910-6, 4,318 passing yards, 27 passing TDs, 20 INT, 358 rushing yards, 5 rushing TDs, 4.8 y/aA torn rotator cuff was likely the downfall of Majkowskis promising early career, but he also may not have been as good as his 1989 season would suggest if he were healthy. The fact that he led the league in completions and yards in that season, leading the Pack to a 10-6 record, is perhaps overshadowed by the memorable Instant Replay game against the Bears.Minnesota Vikings - Sidney Rice, 200983 receptions, 1,312 yards, 8 TDsA significant knee injury forced tight end Joe Senser to cut his career short, despite an attempted return following the injury in 1984, but his 1981 season was one to remember 79 receptions, 1,004 yards, 8 TDs. And before Adrian Peterson, there was Michael Bennett for one good year, at least 1,296 yards, 5 TDs, 5.1 y/a in 2002. But when the 2009 Pro Bowl featured Sidney Rice and his 1,312 yards -- good for fourth in the league -- the Vikings knew they had experienced their truest one-season wonder. Rice couldnt avoid injuries and only had one more healthy season with Seattle in 2016.Steve Smith became one of Eli Mannings favorite targets in 2009. Photo credit Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesNFC EastDallas Cowboys - Laurent Robinson, 201154 receptions, 858 yards, 11 TDsRobinsons 2011 performance with the Cowboys was so inspiring, especially after four years of mediocrity, that it caused the Jaguars to sign him to a five-year, $32.5 million contract. Its safe to say he didnt live up to that deal, considering he played in only seven games due to concussions, was placed on IR in November, and was cut the following March.New York Giants - Steve Smith, 2009107 receptions, 1,220 yards, 7 TDsWith only 725 rushing yards to his name entering the 2008 season, Derrick Ward caught the league off-guard with his 1,025-yard campaign for the Giants, a season which would be his last in New York and the only good one of his career. But Steve Smiths elite performance in 2009 is more deserving of this spot, as he led the NFL in receptions, yards and touchdown catches a quarter-way through the season and became the first 90-catch receiver in Giants history. He was out of football by 2012.Philadelphia Eagles - Kevin Curtis, 200777 receptions, 1,110 yards, 6 receiving TDsIf not for Nick Foles unforgettable postseason run and Super Bowl LII performance, his 27-TD, 2-INT campaign in 2013 would take the cake. But instead, I opted to go for one of the many wide receivers throughout the 2000s and 2010s, and Kevin Curtiss 2007 display was better than other candidates, such as Riley Cooper 835 yards and eight TDs in 2013.Washington Football Team - Robert Griffin III, 20129-6, 3,200 yards, 20 TD, 5 INT, 815 rushing yards, 7 rushing TDs, 6.8 y/aLadell Betts exploded for 1,154 rushing yards out of nowhere in 2006, and Albert Connell was pretty much his wide receiver equivalent, reaching 1,132 yards randomly in 1999. RG3, however, is a guy who became an immediate superstar his rookie season, and then faded into obscurity almost as immediately. He has a real chance to redeem himself in a unique role in 2020 and beyond as a member of the hard-to-stop Baltimore Ravens.LISTEN NOW on theRADIO.COM AppFollow RADIO.COM SportsTwitterFacebookIInstagram Tags: NFL Comments

Saints LB Demario Davis always searching for improvement

The coveted NFL Network Top 100 Players listfor 2020 came out earlier this spring, and finally Davis name was included. Davis has been in the NFL for 9 seasons and this is the first time he made this prestigious list. Hes No. 67 out of 100 players.Im not going to take any of that for granted. Im my biggest critic and my biggest cheerleader,Davis admitted. The list is voted on by NFL players, so its recognition by his peers.The Captain of the Saints defense says he believes he was a big acquisition for the team in 2018, after bouncing around the league with the Jets and Browns. Davis is honored to be recognized, but also feels theres plenty to improve upon. The goal isalways to accomplish more. I feel like I should be higher on the list. I use that as motivation. I will always find motivation to trigger myself to go to another level. Im grateful to be on the list. Im going to find ways not to get comfortable, Davis added.Durability has been a big key to Davis success in New Orleans. In two seasons hes suited up for every possible contest the Saints played in. He registered over 100 combined tackles in each of his first two years in a Black and Gold uniform. Davis is a trusted leader and the heartbeat of the Saints defense.I agree with Demario Davis. He should register higher on the NFLs Top 100 list. You can make the argument that he might be the best free agent acquisition in Saints history not named Drew Brees.
