It’s easy to be optimistic in May. We’ll see if Wentz continues his upbeat prognosis three months down the line.
If Wentz isn’t ready for the season opener, the Eagles will ride Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles to start the year. The uncertainty of Wentz’s rehab is the reason Philly didn’t trade Foles, and why they re-did his contract to add incentives.
Wentz said Monday that there is no awkwardness between the two competitors.
Obviously the draft killed any hopes of a Wayne Gallman breakout (the same could also be said of Samaje Perine in Washington) and I still don’t have a great read on Green Bay’s backfield, though I expect it will be some combination of sophomores Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.
One player we’re forgetting about is Dalvin Cook, who looked like he was ready to take the league by storm until he tore his ACL in Week 4. It always takes a leap of faith Solomon Thomas Jersey to draft someone coming off a serious knee injury but all signs point to Cook being ready for Week 1 and I expect him to be a big-time contributor on one of the league’s best offenses. Another sophomore back to keep an eye out for is Tarik Cohen, who should be more involved in the Bears’ passing attack this season. Considering Jordan Howard’s immense struggles as a pass-catcher, that’s probably for the best. Could Allen Hurns emerge as a WR2 or better in PPR?
Perhaps a sign of Fleener’s departure came during free agency and immediately after the draft.
The Saints brought back veteran tight end Benjamin Watson on a one-year deal and signed Western Kentucky’s Deon Yelder as an undrafted free agent. With Fleener’s release, the Saints have Watson, Yelder, Josh Hill, Michael Hoomanawanui, Garrett Griffin and Alex Ellis on the offseason roster.

Fleener entered the league in 2012 out of Stanford as a second-round pick with the Colts. For his career, he has 255 catches for 3,080 yards and 22 touchdowns.

What we determined is that it’s the same velocity, same spiral efficiency and the same spin, but the time of release was slower when he dropped it, said Palmer, whose older brother Carson played quarterback for 15 NFL seasons. So, it was basically like, ‘OK, so you have a slowed release and you’re not gaining any velocity on this.’ So, that was eye-opening to where he went, ‘Wow. So, let’s go ahead and fix this.’ Darnold and Palmer kept training with the football and used the data to fine-tune the mechanics of one of the most highly touted players in the country.
