Larry Fitzgerald recruiting Kirk Cousins to Arizona
Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald doesn’t have much time left in his NFL career, and what time he has he wants to spend catching passes from a good quarterback. And so Fitzgerald is recruiting Kirk Cousins to Arizona.
Cousins posted on Instagram a picture of himself and Fitzgerald, with a message that Fitzgerald has been recruiting him.
Wynn converted from left guard to left tackle as a senior and excelled. At 6’3 and 313 pounds, he’s a natural fit along the interior. The versatile blocker plays with exceptional balance and almost always manages good run fits and square pass sets. He is quite difficult to beat because he’s a patient blocker…until he needs to bury an opponent. He’s also athletic enough to excel in the Seahawks’ zone blocking-heavy scheme.
A consistent and well-coached offensive lineman is exactly what Seattle needs after it’s relied on multiple projects during the last few seasons.
The incoming wide receiver class is underwhelming. Only one or two prospects are even considered first-round prospects. That doesn’t matter as long as a franchise selects the right prospect.
But that has been hard to do recently, with an awful three-year stretch of first-round draftees: Amari Cooper, Kevin White, DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor, Breshad Perriman, Phillip Dorsett, Corey Coleman, Will Fuller V, Josh Doctson, Laquon Treadwell, Corey Davis, Mike Williams and John Ross.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Seahawks have told the veteran cornerback he would be released today, setting him into the market before the start of the league year next Wednesday.
Even though he’s coming off a torn Achilles and a cleanup surgery to the other one, Sherman should be sought-after commodity, particularly for teams close to contention.
And while the Seahawks defense had already begun to fade, seeing so many big names discarded still pulls a startling curtain on what was one of the league’s top defenses.
Patterson is an interesting guy. He has elite speed and playmaking ability as a kickoff returner. He can scare people on some catch-and-runs or jet sweeps, but really isn’t a consistent weapon for an offense. He has an eye-opening statistic in that he’s averaged more yards per rush in his career (10.3 avg.) than on receptions (10.0 avg.). Now, he’s obviously had about four-times as many catches and rushes, including 30-plus in four of five seasons, but the reality is that he’s just not a consistent, reliable option on offense. So, his first role in his new home with the Patriots will likely be returning and covering kicks.
