The Giants have added a local product to the roster ahead of next week’s three-day minicamp.
Tight end Garrett Dickerson attended Bergen Catholic High School, which is a short drive from MetLife Stadium, before heading to Northwestern to play his college ball. Dickerson caught 87 passes for 887 yards and nine touchdowns in 49 games at the school and set career highs in catches and receiving yards during his final season with the Wildcats.
I’ve felt pressure, every day, all six, seven years in the NFL. This year is no different. I’ve just gotten to the point where it’s — that’s life. So, I don’t think of pressure now. I just go play.
Judging by Cousins’ body language (relaxed yet purposeful) as he navigated the practice field, it certainly looked like the former fourth-round pick has mastered dealing with expectations — at this time of year anyway.
You just never knew, Crowell told the New York Post. Sometimes it was [an every-down situation], sometimes it wasn’t. You just never knew week in and week out. I felt like that was discouraging and annoying.
That doesn’t speak well for Browns head coach Hue Jackson. Nor does Jackson’s record of 1-31 in Cleveland. Crowell started all 32 of those games, and he says it frustrated him to keep losing.
It wasn’t a good feeling. Nobody likes to lose, Crowell said. I’m a sore loser. I do whatever I can to win. It wasn’t a good feeling.
Of course, by leaving the Browns for the Jets, Crowell is still on a team that hasn’t been winning much recently. He’ll hope he can be a part of changing that.
No team asks more of a lineman who predominantly plays between the tackles than the San Francisco 49ers have of DeForest Buckner early on in his career. He’s handled it about as well as anyone could have asked, landing in the eighth spot on Bleacher Report’s defensive tackle rankings for its NFL1000 project.
