Howard, 26, rejoined the Eagles last November after being waived by the Miami Dolphins. He was traded from the Chicago Bears to Philadelphia Color Rush Eric Wilson Jersey, in 2019 and rushed for 525 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games before being slowed by injury. Howard will compete to be in the running back rotation along with Miles Sanders and Boston Scott.

Wilson’s rise with the Minnesota Vikings from undrafted free agent to special teams player to starting linebacker went into full effect in Week 2 of the 2020 season, when Anthony Barr exited with a torn pectoral muscle that required season-ending surgery.

From that point on, Wilson, who was previously the No. 3 linebacker, played 100% of the defensive snaps for the Vikings. He was the team’s only linebacker Eric Wilson Jersey Amazon, to play in every game last season.

At times, he struggled against the run, finishing with 20 missed tackles. His run defense grade of 38.3 was the lowest of any linebacker who played a minimum of 80% of the snaps last season, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Jordan Howard is known to be a man of few words, and he didn’t need many to get his point across Tuesday: He is not done yet.

Mere moments after signing a one-year contract to return to the Eagles, Howard was honest in that the running back market has been very slow Stitched Jordan Howard Jersey, so far in free agency. That was after Howard was unceremoniously released by the Miami Dolphins during the 2020 season before spending the rest of the year on the Eagles’ practice squad.

It was a humbling experience for the former Pro Bowl running back who gained over 2,400 yards in his first two seasons with the Chicago Bears. However, in 2021, Howard is eager to prove those who believe his tank is empty wrong.

“I still feel like I have a lot left,” Howard told the media Tuesday.

Howard understands why teams would think his most productive years are behind him. He is a running back, after all, and the common perception White Jordan Howard Jersey, is that the shelf life for such a violent position is brief compared to others.

Because of that stigma Howard, just five months after his 26th birthday, admitted that he thought his career may have been over. But Howard took his mother’s advice and remained patient, hoping another opportunity to showcase his ability would come his way.

That chance came in the form of the Eagles, who are hoping Howard can be a bruising complement to Miles Sanders and Boston Scott, much like he was in 2019 before his season was cut short due to injury.

“I’m here to push Miles (Sanders) to just continue being the great NFL back he has the potential to be along with the rest of the room. We’re always going to push each other and make each other better,” Howard said.

Although Sanders and Scott are a pair of familiar faces, there a lot of new ones from the last time Howard was at the NovaCare Complex. Most notably, Head Coach Nick Sirianni.

Howard said Tuesday that he is excited to Jordan Howard Jersey Amazon, work with Sirianni because they both are looking to accomplish a lot of the same goals in 2021 and beyond.

“(Sirianni is) a young guy, the coaching staff is young, and they’re ready to prove themselves and as a team we’re ready to prove ourselves,” Howard said.

I certainly wouldn’t rule it out, Bob. It’s clear that Paton is doing his due diligence on this year’s prospects by attending pro days featuring the top quarterbacks. Paton has attended pro days at North Dakota State (Trey Lance), BYU (Zach Wilson) and Ohio State (Justin Fields), and the Broncos also had representatives at Alabama’s pro day, Womens Andrew Beck Jersey, where Mac Jones put on a throwing session. Paton has been at other pro days, too, so there’s no guarantee that a quarterback is on the Broncos’ mind. Paton said in mid-March that the position is in play with the ninth-overall pick, but Denver may need to trade up if they want to assure the opportunity to select one of the top quarterbacks.

At the moment, the job belongs to Drew Lock, and we know that Paton believes in the third-year player. There’s still plenty of time to add competition via the draft or via a free agent after the draft process isn’t complete. If Paton’s early moves have indicated anything, it’s that he isn’t going to make a move just for the sake of making a move. The Broncos’ new general manager will weigh the team’s options and move forward with his aggressive — but not reckless — approach.

In case of picking a QB at mid-draft, which would you see as an option for Denver? – Oscar J.

Lots of mock drafts have focused on the possibility that the Broncos will use the ninth-overall pick — and perhaps a package of other selections if they need to trade up — to find their next quarterback. But if they decide to wait until the second round or beyond, as they did in 2019 when they selected Lock, there are plenty of other options. Florida’s Kyle Trask, Texas A&M’s Kellen Mond and Wake Forest’s Jamie Newman are among the quarterbacks projected as mid-round picks and could give the Broncos another option in their quarterback room. Mond may have the most potential of that group, Color Rush Andrew Beck Jersey, and Newman may be the toughest to evaluate, as he opted out of the 2020 season. Perhaps the most intriguing mid-round prospect is Stanford’s Davis Mills, who played well in in limited action in 2020 despite missing part of the season due to COVID-19 protocols. The biggest question mark with Mills comes from his lack of experience, as he started just 11 games at Stanford. He has talent, though, and the buzz around Mills has grown in recent weeks. One evaluator has compared Mills to Jared Goff, which could make him an interesting addition to Denver’s QB room.

How much better can this offense be this year healed up and another year in the same system? – Brady F.

Brady, I don’t see how the offense couldn’t be better in 2021 for those two reasons precisely. Every player will have another year to dive into Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur’s system, Shurmur will be able to tailor the offense after a year’s look at his personnel and the team will regain several key players, including Courtland Sutton. The offense should also benefit from the return of preseason games and the potential return of in-person offseason workouts. Ultimately, the offense’s 2021 success will depend on the quarterback position. If Drew Lock is the starter and plays like he did against the Panthers or in games late in the season vs. LA and Las Vegas, the Broncos’ offense should be ready to take the next step.

What can we expect for Albert O. and his recovery? [Are we] looking for a tight end in the draft again? – @jayduarte7

Jay, when I spoke with Albert Okwuegbunam in mid-February, he was a little more than three months removed from his ACL injury that he suffered against the Falcons last season. He had started to run on an anti-gravity treadmill, and he was poised to start jogging without the assistance of the machine in the days to come. Okwuegbunam told me he expect to be back by training camp with “no issues.” I’d expect him to take a step forward in 2021 after a promising rookie season, and I’m excited to see what he and Noah Fant can accomplish together.

That said, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Broncos draft a tight end that can provide muscle in the running game. The team released Nick Vannett, and Jake Butt and Troy Fumagalli both became unrestricted free agents when the new league year began. Austin Fort remains under contract, but he profiles as a receiving tight end in the mold of Fant and Okwuegbunam. Where the Broncos select a tight end could reflect whether the team believes Andrew Beck can fill the role on his own. I would think the team Andrew Beck Jersey Amazon, would add depth at some point, whether it’s via a mid-to-late-round pick, a college free agent or a veteran ahead of the season.

Are we focused on offense or defense this time? I miss the defense with Von Miller and Derek Wolfe just putting QBs on their backs. – @lordxbamm

Paton filled critical holes during free agency, which means the Broncos won’t be boxed into a corner when the draft begins. I could foresee Denver taking a quarterback, linebacker, cornerback, edge rusher or tackle if the team stands pat with the ninth-overall pick. If the Broncos trade back, that list of positions could grow to include safety, running back and defensive line. Paton has given the Broncos crucial flexibility, which is all a team can ask for heading into the draft. When an organization can select the best player across a wide array of positions rather than be pigeonholed into a pick, it can only help the roster. As a whole, I would expect the Broncos’ nine picks would lean toward the defensive side of the ball to help infuse some youth into a unit that features several veteran players entering the last year of their contract.

Should Denver trade their first-round pick to gain more picks in later rounds? – @Whyyoutrippin48

It all depends on how the board falls, as I don’t think there’s a blanket answer. If there’s a surplus of impact players at No. 9, it’s absolutely worth trading down a few spots to pick up an extra second- or third-round pick and add quality young players to the roster. If there’s a gap on the Broncos’ draft board between a player that’s available at No. 9 and the next group of players, then it makes more sense to stand pat and select that player. Ultimately, it comes down to Paton and Co.’s ability to evaluate talent. We’ve seen teams make a habit of trading down and find great success — and we’ve also seen teams hoard picks and fail to turn those selections into wins.

Paton has previously called the draft the “lifeblood” of the organization and has spoken about his desire to build draft capital. Given that sentiment, it certainly wouldn’t surprise me if Paton trades down at some point in the draft to accrue more picks. Whether that comes at the ninth-overall pick would all depend on the perceived value.
