As the NFL training camp season gets in full swing, one Rams legend is calling for a different starting quarterback in Los Angeles in 2017.
The NFL season is starting to creep up on all of us, and for those in sunny Los Angeles, it means another rough season ahead for the Rams. While the team is expected to start 2016 No. 1 pick Jared Goff under center, one Rams legend wants to see the team go in another direction. Eric Dickerson told The Herd on Friday that he would like the team to go with Sean Mannion, stating that he feels the team has a better chance of winning with him on the field.
Staying in Los Angeles, the Chargers are hopeful their 2017 first round pick will be able to help the team this upcoming season. Mike Williams shot down reports that he is having season-ending surgery on his back, and expects to play this season. The Chargers lost star wideout Keenan Allen to a torn ACL in Week 1 last season, and a tandem of Williams and Allen in 2017 would give Philip Rivers some nice weapons to throw to.
One wide receiver who will definitely be ready to go for training camp is DeAndre Hopkins, who is expected to join his team on Monday. Hopkins walked off the field after the first day of training camp last year, hoping to get a better deal. The star wideout for the Houston Texans had a sub-par season by his standards, catching only four touchdowns, but that was mostly due to the fact that Brock Osweiler was the team’s starting quarterback in 2016.
The Dallas Cowboys are all over the news, and the season hasn’t even started yet. Star running back Ezekiel Elliott is under investigation for a domestic abuse incident, though team owner Jerry Jones says that there is no evidence. In other news, it appears that Jaylon Smith is on pace to actually help the team this season, after missing last year with a knee injury. What a time to be a Cowboys fan.
The Cleveland Browns expect to be much improved this NFL season, and they signed another key piece to their puzzle this past weekend. First round selection Jabrill Peppers, who is expected to start at safety for the team, signed his rookie deal on Sunday. Peppers was the most versatile player in college football last season for the Michigan Wolverines, winning the Paul Hornung Award.
