According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, Dolphins special teams coach Darren Rizzi had dinner last night with Florida’s Eddy Pineiro, who some consider to be the top kicker available in the draft.

Pineiro, who grew up in Miami, hit 88.4 percent of his field goals in college and 96.6 percent of his extra points. There’s video evidence of him hitting an 81-yarder in practice, so he seems to have enough leg to be good on kickoffs as well.

The unfortunate thing for me is there’s just not a lot of him playing football in a Giants helmet, which would have been a good thing for me to see moving forward, Shurmur said. That is what it is, but I’m looking forward to working with him, for sure. I’ve got high hopes for him, being a productive player in this league.The long-term effects of concussions and other brain trauma has been a big focus in recent years thanks in large part to the NFL and many of its former players. The league has been forced to address concerns that it doesn’t do enough to prevent concussions and sideline players who are suspected of sustaining them, but there’s still a long way to go. Now, new research suggests that just one concussion can be enough to increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease later in life.

Barkley rushed for 3,843 yards in three seasons in college, averaging 5.7 yards per carry, giving them another home run threat.

Gettleman had plenty of chances to trade, but stood firm on the opportunity to add a player considered by many to be the best overall prospect in the draft. He cautioned before the draft that missing on a quarterback could set a franchise back five years, so he decided to stick with the old one he already had.

Authentic Womens Travis Swanson Jersey Shurmur saw prospects Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield in person at the scouting combine and also attended their Pro Days. Next up, he gets to take a long look at Webb, as the Giants on Tuesday open up a three-day minicamp, a bonus for any NFL team with a first-year head coach. The offseason workout program is only in its third week and the offensive and defensive systems are not yet installed, so this early spring work on the field will only slightly resemble the product the Giants hope to display this season.

Eli Manning and Webb are, at present, the only two quarterbacks on the roster and you can be sure Shurmur is not going Authentic Lac Edwards Jersey to wear out Manning’s 37-year-old arm in a late April camp. So, Webb should expect a heavy workload as he gets his first real opportunity to show Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman what he’s got.
