them to start work faster April 15 for th (24th Jul 19 at 6:08am UTC)
THOUSAND OAKS D.K. Metcalf Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Marcus Peters is focused on what is happening in Miami, and the Los Angeles Rams defensive back insists it has nothing to do with the contract the Dolphins gave to cornerback Xavien Howard earlier this month.Howard agreed to a five-year deal that includes $46 million guaranteed and could be worth $76.5 million, resetting the market with the most lucrative extension ever for a NFL cornerback just as Peters is set to play out the final season of his rookie contract on the fifth-year option.But Peters said that he prioritizes a return trip to the Super Bowl, which will be played in the Dolphins’ stadium next February, over getting his next contract settled.“I want to get to the Super Bowl and win it this time, that’s what I want to break, really,” Peters said. “All of the rest of the stuff will take care of itself.”Peters repeated that phrase multiple times Tuesday after the Rams started the second week of organized team activities, refusing to discuss what he might want from his second contract.However, it seems possible that Peters’ starting point for a contract could exceed the terms of Howard’s deal based on how the 2015 first-round draft pick has produced on the field.Peters has 22 interceptions in four seasons with Kansas City and the Rams, compared to Howard’s 11 picks over the past two seasons. Peters did finish with a career-low three interceptions this past season, his first in Los Angeles after being acquired in a trade with the Chiefs http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-cody-barton-jersey , though some of the drop in production could be attributed to a calf injury he sustained in Week 4 against the Chargers.There was a clear downturn in Peters’ performance following the injury, notably struggling to contain New Orleans wide receiver Michael Thomas in a Week 9 loss at the Saints. Thomas had 12 receptions for 211 yards in that game, including a 72-yard touchdown catch against Peters.When the Rams and Saints played again in the NFC championship game, a healthier Peters responded by helping limit Thomas to four receptions for 36 yards. Coach Sean McVay praised Peters for how he bounced back in the playoffs and hopes it sets a template for how he can produce this season.“One of the things that really says as much about Marcus as anything is the ability to overcome some adversity early on,” McVay said. “He stayed the course. He took accountability and I thought he played his best ball towards the end of the year.”McVay hopes to get the most out of Peters by better featuring his “great ball skills, great instincts and awareness” in his second season in Los Angeles. Peters also expects to be more effective with a better understanding of defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ system and how the Rams structure their program.“Everything is running smoothly now,” Peters said. “You kind of understand the schedule, how everything is going to work. It just plays itself out now.”Peters has the same expectations when it comes to his contract, especially after McVay said in April when league owners held their annual meetings that he “absolutely” wants to have Peters sign a long-term deal with the Rams.“The only thing I can do is come in and do my job and be the best teammate I’m doing, be the best player I can be on the field, and the rest of the stuff will take care of itself,” Peters said. “I’m not too worried about it.”NOTES: RB Todd Gurley has yet to participate in on-field drills during organized team activities. “He’s been an active participant Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , you know, following the program that we’ve implemented with him, and we’re very pleased with where Todd is at right now,” McVay said. … DE Dante Fowler was not in attendance for Tuesday’s workout after missing his flight back to Los Angeles, McVay said. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Arthur Smith has worked for a several head coaches, including four with the Tennessee Titans so he knows as well as anyone just how much turnover quarterback Marcus Mariota has dealt with in the NFL.So while Smith represents more change, he and the Titans plan to keep things the same for Mariota’s sake.Smith will be the quarterback’s fourth different offensive coordinator and fifth play-caller heading into this fifth NFL season. So to prevent Mariota and his teammates from having to learn new terminology for plays and protections, Smith isn’t planning an overhaul of the playbook.“He’s already changed enough,” Smith said Tuesday. “So when he comes in here he’ll know exactly how we’re reading plays, he’ll know exactly how we’re calling plays. It just allows him to take another step.”Continuity and familiarity were major factors in Smith’s promotion from tight ends coach to offensive coordinator , replacing Matt LaFleur — who was hired last month by the Green Bay Packers. Smith said he made clear his career goals included becoming a coordinator when talking with Titans coach Mike Vrabel http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-phil-haynes-jersey , and the man who started coaching as a graduate assistant at his alma mater North Carolina said he has been very lucky.Mike Munchak hired Smith in 2011 as a defensive quality control assistant before switching him to offense. Smith assisted with the offensive line and tight ends in 2013 and became assistant tight ends coach in 2014 under new coach Ken Whisenhunt. When Mike Mularkey replaced Whisenhunt in November 2015, Smith took over the tight ends and coached the group through 2018 under Mike Vrabel .“I’ve always just tried to do a good job with the job that they gave me,” Smith said.Smith takes over at a crucial period. The Titans have gone 9-7 in three straight seasons with only one playoff berth to show for it, and Mariota is under contract only for 2019 on his fifth-year option paying him $20.9 million.The Titans need to know how much more they should invest in Mariota, who missed three starts including the season finale with a playoff berth on the line in 2018 and is 27-28 as a starter in his career. Mariota had his fewest yards passing with 2,528 yards last season and only 11 touchdown passes while being sacked a career-high 42 times.While Smith won’t be changing the terminology, he said there are offensive changes on the horizon.Smith believes the best way to get the most out of Mariota is by improving the entire offense, and the Titans have plenty of room for that after ranking just 25th in total yards, 29th in yards passing and 27th in points scored. That’s why the Titans aren’t changing the language or the offense allowing them to start work faster April 15 for the offseason program. Smith made clear there are lots of variations in the offense, allowing flexibility for specific game plans.Keeping Mariota healthy also will be critical to Tennessee’s success.“The play-calling definitely can help,” Smith said. “It’s not the end all be all, but it’ll definitely be a conscious effort to keep him healthy.”Defensive coordinator Dean Pees also talked to reporters Tuesday for the first time since deciding to return for his second season on Vrabel’s staff.Pees Ugo Amadi Jersey , who turns 70 in September, spent the night of Nov. 18 in an Indianapolis hospital after having to leave the coaches’ booth at the beginning of what wound up a 38-10 loss. Pees never has specified what his issue was, but he said it never was life-threatening, though he had a “couple things cleaned up” after the season.“Feeling good, feeling as good as I’ve felt in a long, long time,” Pees said.He returns to the NFL’s third-stingiest scoring defense, a unit that also ranked eighth in total yards allowed. Pees says it was a very easy decision to coach another season.“I’m certainly hoping we can improve on what we did,” Pees said.
