Bills’ Zay Jones Has To “Earn His Way” Into Lineup

Published

on

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones, a 2017 2nd round pick, will need to step it up if he wants to make it to the Bills’ lineup.

Jones didn’t do anything special during his rookie season, as injuries plagued his entire campaign. Jones spent much of the season dealing with a shoulder injury, and now he missed offseason work following knee surgery.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane wants to see Jones earn his spot in the lineup.

“He’s not just going to necessarily go right to the top of the line,” Beane said, during a recent appearance on WGR 550. “He’ll have to earn his way. Part of that will just be just getting his feel. He’s only played with Nathan Peterman. He has not got to play with Josh Allen or AJ [McCarron] yet. So that bond there will just have to form.”

Jones is a part of a receiver group that includes Kelvin Benjamin, Andre Holmes, Jeremy Kerley, and Brandon Reilly.

Bills Cut Terrelle Pryor

The Buffalo Bills have released wide receiver Terrelle Pryor who was signed only a few short weeks ago, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Pryor saw his snap count drop from his first game with the Bills to his second game, and he only managed to haul in two receptions for 17 yards, which will cause speculation that Pryor’s hamstring issues may not be fully behind him.

Pryor as cut from the New York Jets in October, prior to latching on with the Bills.

Jets Unlikely To Fire Mike Maccagnan

Published

Despite what appears to be another lost season, the New York Jets are considered unlikely to fire general manager Mike Maccagnan, according to SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano.

Furthermore, the report indicates that while Maccagnan’s job appears to be safe for now, head coach Todd Bowles is on the hot seat.

Due Maccagnan’s long-stated plan to compete for a playoff berth in 2019, ownership sees him as not falling short of their expectations, making it likely that they will move forward with the general manager despite Bowles’ likely departure.

The Jets will have around $100 million in cap space in the 2019 offseason, and are putting their faith in Maccagnan to put something together in 2019.

Dolphins’ Ryan Tannehill Throwing Without Pain

Published

on

The Miami Dolphins may have quarterback Ryan Tannehill back when the team plays the Indianapolis Colts following their bye this week, as head coach Adam Gase provided an update concerning Tannehill’s status.

“That was the start of their throwing progression after so many off,” Gase said earlier this week, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “It seemed like it went well. It’s not like he’s out there throwing 60-yard throws. They have a progression of how they want to do it. They said it was a good first step and he felt good. So that’s a positive.”

Tannehill has missed the last five games because of a capsule injury in his throwing shoulder, and the team has been rolling with Brock Osweiler under center.

Gase said that Tannehill is on a pitch count right now but the team is hoping that he will be fully cleared by next Wednesday’s practice so he can be a full go against the Colts.

“It’s a pitch count, distance,” Gase said. “There are a lot of factors involved. It’s like what they’re doing right now – it’s like don’t throw any balls over 15 yards, don’t through any over 20, 25. It’s going to be a progression. He didn’t throw a ball there for a while. We’ve got to be careful. There has to be a buildup from there.”
