Via Meagan Nichols of the Memphis Business Journal, Will Lewis will serve as the team’s General Manager.
The former NFL and USFL defensive back has 20 years of experience as a coach, scout, and executive.
Most recently, Lewis spent five years as the director of pro scouting with the Chiefs. Before that, he was the V.P. of football operations in Seattle.
A lot of it goes into how much you care about the game and how much you care about making mistakes and learning from your mistakes and continuing to grow, he said.
Even during the first, voluntary, non-contact practices of this offseason, Anzalone said, he has been a lot more comfortable than Year 1.
I’m confident. I think I was confident last year, Anzalone said. You just do your best at what you’re asked to do. That’s really all there is to it. That’s kind of how I live my life.
Lattimore covered his former Ohio State teammate, Michael Thomas, during 11-on-11 drills Thursday in a matchup of players who were first-time Pro Bowl selections last season. Thomas’ back-shoulder catch near the sideline despite tight coverage by Lattimore was among the more memorable plays of the session. Later, Lattimore grinned as he said he has held his own against Thomas during the majority of offseason practices that have not been open to media. He’s going to get me sometimes and I get him sometimes, Lattimore said. But he kind of tried to show off a little bit for the cameras.
Ryan signed a five-year, $150 million deal with $100 million guaranteed on May 3. The Packers hope soon to sign Rodgers to a long-term deal.
Both sides hope to accomplish that before training camp begins.
Rodgers is scheduled to make base salaries of $19.8 million in 2018 and $20 million in 2020 in the final two years of his deal.
By invoking Nazi salutes, King is using incendiary language that is sure to enflame the situation just as the NFL was hoping to find a way to prevent it from dominating the headlines. King is also showing that some on the right will put other alliances aside to focus on this issue: After all, Johnson is only running the Jets right now because his brother, Jets owner Woody Johnson, is serving as President Trump’s ambassador to the United Kingdom. Woody Johnson is a Republican who has given millions of dollars to Republican campaigns, and he would obviously prefer not to see his football team associated with Nazi salutes in a tweet from a Republican Congressman. But King went there.
