Overall a pretty quiet weekly link dump.
Khalil Mack : Was ESPN trying to ask a rhetorical question here?
Is the Derek Carr-Khalil Mack combo the best in the division?
Mack and Carr may be the best offensive / defensive threat in the league especially when you factor in their ages (still in the mid 20’s).
John Kling: Here are seven things the Redskin fans are learning
One of the nice bits here is that he is already reaching out to make an impact in the community.
The lineman visited the Judith P. Hoyer Montessori School with teammate Arie Kouandjio to celebrate the school’s victory in the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation’s 5K School Challenge. Kling interacted with the students, serving as a role model and inspiring them to pursue their dreams.
Steven Means: Still in line to be the 5th defensive end in Philly
Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry, Derek Barnett, and Chris Long are definitely ahead of him on the depth chart. I’d say Steven Means easily is too, so that makes McCalister the sixth defensive end at best. The 2016 seventh-round pick could end up on the practice squad this year.
Speaking of giving back, Jordan Johnson is doing a little of that in his hometown.
While the Bills and the rest of the NFL are enjoying a few weeks off closer to home Bills rookie running back Jordan Johnson is giving back to his community. The UB and Sweet Home product coaching at Jim Kelly's football camp this week where he says it's important to help nurture the youth of the area and hopefully motivate them to follow their dreams. Johnson trying to keep his dream of playing in the NFL going after being signed by the Bills as an undrafted rookie free agent. The back saying he'll do whatever it takes to get on the field including play special teams.
