New Rams cornerback Marcus Peters has an idea: Pay Aaron Donald.
“Hey man, pay the man,” Peters said, via Greg Beacham of the Associated Press. “I mean [expletive]. You win the MVP? Come on now.”
Never mind that Donald didn’t win the MVP. He was the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year after making 11 sacks and forcing five fumbles last season.
“It’s kind of where it’s been,” coach Sean McVay said. “We’re in constant dialogue and communication with his representation. It is something that we want to get resolved. As far as a timetable, don’t really have any dates on that. I don’t expect Aaron to be here until we get a resolution to that.”
Attempting to reboot his once-promising career after a gruesome knee injury, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater participated in team drills and looked sharp Tuesday in his first practice with the New York Jets.
It feels great, Bridgewater said of his surgically repaired left knee.
Bridgewater will battle incumbent Josh McCown and first-round pick Sam Darnold in the Jets’ quarterback competition.
The Jets traded away Christian Hackenberg to the Raiders on Tuesday. Hackenberg received no practice reps and later criticized the coaching staff for failing to help him clean up mechanical issues during his first two seasons.
Hackenberg, a former second-round pick who didn’t play a single down in 2016 and 2017, hired a personal quarterback coach during the offseason. Working with Chicago-based Jeff Christensen, he shortened his throwing motion.
