The Seahawks drafted Rashaad Penny in the first round, but Chris Carson hasn’t let them forget about him.
Carson, a seventh-round pick in 2017, had 49 carries for 208 yards in the first four games before fracturing his leg and finishing on injured reserve.
Antonio Brown is the league’s highest paid receiver at $17 million annually, the result of a deal he signed in February 2017 after seeking a raise during the 2016 offseason. –Young quarterbacks are a hook for HBO’s Hard Knocks documentary series, and Baker Mayfield happens to be the hottest commodity in the rookie QB market as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, even though the Browns had previously acquired their intended starter — Tyrod Taylor — in a deal with the Buffalo Bills.That subplot figures to be a key storyline, and from Mayfield’s perspective, additional eyeballs on the Browns should be a positive.
I think he’s on schedule, Wilks said, via the team’s website. He feels real confident right now with how his knee feels. Again, we are doing a great job in-house with the trainers and strength and conditioning coach and getting him where he needs to be. I think from a mental standpoint, he’s feeling pretty good.
Wilks also said that they plan to ramp up Bradford’s work in the final week of the offseason program and identified different looks from a blitz standpoint and two-minute offense as areas that they hope to focus on with the veteran quarterback.
As for 49ers defensive end Cassius Marsh, I’m told he pitched a fit over playing time at halftime of the Patriots-Raiders game in Mexico City (he was in on two snaps that week), which contributed to his release days later.
