Jordan Peterson brought amazing perspective to staff, Pete Carroll says

Carroll said Peterson had an important message for the staff.

He talked about personal growth. He talked about perspective and life and working together and helping each other find our best, things that really rang true to us around here, Carroll said.

Carroll frequently brings guest speakers to address his players and coaches, a practice he began at USC and has continued in Seattle.

Strength and speed are why Hill was able to help out on special teams, but passing accuracy are what he needs to develop if he wants to be a quarterback. Playing behind Brees, Hill has time to develop. And perhaps some day, Hill could even be Brees’ successor.

It’s unclear whether the NFL will use progressive discipline in this situation. Given the way the changes to the anthem policy were handled by the league, it’s fair to wonder whether the league has even considered that angle.

At some point, the league will need to consider whether it wants to engage Johnson and the Jets in a showdown that would unfold in the NFL’s backyard, and that would play out on the front and back pages of every periodical in the nation’s No. 1 media market. Before that happens, the league would be wise to reconsider what seems to be one of the worst non-unanimous unanimous non-vote votes that ownership has ever taken not taken.

In the near-total makeover of the offensive line, the one holdover returning to the same position is Brett Jones, who started 13 games at center last season when Weston Richburg went down and took full advantage of the playing time. The new coaching staff assessed the situation, new general manager Dave Gettleman reviewed the tape and the determination was made the Giants could move forward with Jones as the center, a huge vote of confidence for the former Canadian Football League player. Jones has certainly not been unseated, but it appears as if Halapio, a guard turned center this spring, has a shot to not only make the team as a backup interior offensive lineman but also to push Jones for the coveted spot with the first team.

If so, this will be a friendly battle waged between the pair of 26-year-olds.

The competition brings out the best in him, and me, Halapio said. It’s important we both get these reps and split ’em with the first team because ultimately, we’re trying to compete for that starting role.

The Dallas Cowboys began their offseason program Monday with a noticeable void.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant is no longer a member of the organization. Defensive backs Byron Jones and Jeff Heath each spoke of how the Cowboys will miss Bryant’s passion and competitive spirit in the locker room.

Him being out here all the time, always fired up about something. We’ll miss that, Jones said. You can’t replicate that. I am sure he’s going to do well wherever he goes. Added Heath, That was probably line one with [Bryant], just his love for the game. He really demonstrated that when he was out on the field. In games, when he’d get going, I think the whole team fed off that. We’ll definitely miss that about him, but I’ve been in this league long enough to not really be surprised by any move. Jones and Heath spoke to reporters after going through a few lacrosse drills with members of the Dallas Rattlers, the new professional team in town that calls Ford Center home.

But the storyline with the Cowboys remains Bryant’s departure. Jones described his reaction as shock when he heard that the Cowboys were parting ways with their all-time leader in receiving touchdowns last week.

The Jaguars unveiled new uniforms and helmets Thursday, switching to a no-nonsense style that matches the team’s blue-collar identity.

The franchise showed off their new duds at the team’s annual state of the franchise presentation.

True to our current identity and what we want to represent for years to come, our new uniforms are no-nonsense, all business and unmistakably Jaguars, team owner Shad Khan said.

The official unveiling actually came a day after workers at Jacksonville International Airport inadvertently put up life-size posters of current players wearing the uniforms.

The Nike Vapor Untouchable uniforms feature much cleaner lines, which some might consider plain. They have three jersey and pants options — black, white and teal. The all-teal combination, including matching socks, can only be worn during Thursday night games.

The high-gloss black helmets replace the two-tone widely mocked the past five years.

The Giants released veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall on Thursday, GM Dave Gettleman confirmed.
