How quickly do things move in this league? Jake Locker turned 30 on Friday, but the 2011 No. 8 overall pick hasn’t thrown an NFL pass in three-and-a-half years.
Desperate for a franchise quarterback after Vince Young flamed out, the Titans were enticed by Locker’s cannon arm and overlooked the fact said cannon often missed its targets. They drafted Locker, figuring they could coach him up, but that never happened.
The Washington product completed just 57.5 percent of his passes over four ugly seasons, starting just 23 games before his injury-plagued career came to an end when he was 26.
On Feb. 12, 2018 vs. New York, McConnell posted 10 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists and six steals as he became the first 76er ever to post a triple-double off the bench (teammate Markelle Fultz accomplished the feat weeks later). In Philadelphia’s Game 4 http://www.coloradoavalancheofficialonline.com/Adidas-Joe-Sakic-Jersey Eastern Conference Semifinal victory over Boston, McConnell drew his first career playoff start and posted 19 points (9-12 FG), the most he’s totaled in a game in his NBA tenure.
The addition of West should immediately bolster a Saints running back group that will begin the regular season without Mark Ingram, who will serve a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Barring the addition of another running back, the Saints would have gone through the first four games with Alvin Kamara, Jonathan Williams, Trey Edmunds, Daniel Lasco and rookie Boston Scott.
The 5-foot-10, 225-pound West http://www.authenticslightningstore.com/-11-brian-boyle-jersey_c-463.html is set to join the group with five years of NFL experience. He entered the league in 2014 out of Towson as a third-round pick with the Authentic Brian Boyle Jersey Cleveland Browns before being traded to the Tennessee Titans in 2015. West then joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2015 Joe Sakic Authentic Jersey and spent three seasons with the club.
On his career, West has 1,816 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns on 465 attempts, averaging 3.9 yards per carry. He also has 344 yards receiving and two touchdowns on 51 career catches. West’s best season came in 2016 when he led the Ravens with a career-high 774 yards rushing.
Meanwhile, West wasn’t the only veteran free-agent running back to work out for the Saints on Wednesday.
