Report: Trevor Pryce signs with Jets

Posted by Will Brinson

The advent of "new media" means that occasionally, you get reports from odd places, like when we got the news that Trevor Pryce has signed with the Jets via Terrell Suggs on Twitter.

Aaron Wilson reports that Suggs, who protects his tweets, sent a message today indicating that Pryce, who everyone believed would simply re-join Baltimore in a few days, had signed with the Jets.

"kinda sad 2day. my boy trevor pryce signed wit the JETS!!!!!" Suggs tweeted. "happy for him but would rather he be on my team!!!!!"

Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun also reports that a league source has confirmed Pryce's decision to join the Jets. Now neither of those is as concrete as say, an official Jets announcement, but it stands to reason that Suggs, who is friends with Pryce, would hear about it first.

It also stands to reason that Pryce -- who once said of Rex Ryan that "I'm going with him" -- would be interested in joining the Jets, even though Baltimore already had discussions with Pryce's camp about bringing him back as early as Tuesday.

Harbaugh takes $15,000 hit

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has been fined $15,000 for impermissible verbal and physical contact with an official, according to the Baltimore Sun’s Jamison Hensley.

During Baltimore’s 15-10 loss to Cincinnati, Harbaugh made contact with line judge Ron Marinucci where, according to the Sun, “he was demonstrating how Terrell Suggs legally hit Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer in the ‘strike zone.’”

“I was a little animated in describing the strike zone, and I think he understood the emotions of it,” Harbaugh told reporters Monday. “I’ll make sure that I let him know that I think I was over the line in my animation without question, and that’s never something you want to do. And the point is we had great conversations with those guys throughout the game. We respected – we disagreed and it was animated – but it was respectful throughout. And I know Ron understood that it was respectful, so it should be OK.”

Madden '11 simulates the entire NFL season

Posted by Will Brinson



Putting too much stock into an EA Sports simulation of Madden 11 is pretty aggressive -- I won't fault you for not doing it. But that doesn't make the simulation any less interesting, does it? Exactly, and since you already I enjoy the super cool world of virtual sports based on my review of the game , here's a quick breakdown.

Last year, Madden had the New England Patriots winning the Super Bowl, with Tom Brady garnering MVP honors. Other playoff "teams" included Pittsburgh, Tennessee, San Diego, Philadelphia, Arizona, Atlanta and Chicago (who all won their division) and the Colts, Ravens, Giants and Panthers sneaking in as wild cards.

To recap quickly: whoops.

Anyway, Aaron Rodgers is the star to watch, as he wins MVP and gets the Packers homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. Same deal with the Ravens, who win the AFC North. New England, Indianapolis and San Diego are the other AFC division winners, while the 49ers, Cowboys and Saints win the other NFC division spots.

In terms of the wild card, Minnesota (who actually ties with Green Bay for the best record in the NFC at 12-4) and Atlanta are the winners in the NFC, while the Texans and Jets secure wild card spots from the AFC side.

In other words, nothing crazier than what a lot of people are thinking.

Terrell Suggs takes home Defensive Player of the Year, Joe Haden wins Defensive Rookie of the Year and Jermaine Gresham wins Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Some interesting individual performances that people might care about include Greg Jennings having a MONSTER year (102 catches, 1438 yards, 13 TDs), Owen Daniels finishing as the second-best TE in the league, Jerome Harrison rushing for 1235 yards and 9 TDs and Darrelle Revis snaring seven interceptions.

Of course, EA doesn't have teams dealing with holdouts or players struggling back from injuries (like Daniels).

Still, that shouldn't stop you from putting the deed to your house on an "Aaron Rodgers for MVP" prop bet in Vegas.

Trent Williams might need some help

T. Williams struggled against Baltimore's pass rush Saturday (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Trent Williams will face numerous pass-rushing specialists this year – some of the best defensive ends and linebackers in the game. Sure, he’s a rookie LT, but he also was the fourth pick taken in the NFL Draft and the Redskins are expecting him to keep QB Donovan McNabb’s blind side safe.

That’s why Saturday night’s game against the Ravens was so disheartening.

Baltimore’s Terrell Suggs – who’s more of an all-around LB rather than a monster pass-rusher – owned Williams, who gave up a sack and numerous pressures to Suggs in the Ravens win. As the Washington Post points out, that means the Redskins might need to give Williams more help, especially when he has to face the likes of DeMarcus Ware, Mario Williams, Trent Cole and Dwight Freeney this season.

Jason Reid writes:

On Suggs's sack of McNabb in the second quarter, Williams was beaten so badly off the ball that he never had a chance to set up and get into his technique. For that matter, McNabb didn't have a chance, either. And the big play illustrated why premier rush ends/outside linebackers are valued more in the NFL than any position except quarterback and lock-down corners.

(After a Baltimore fumble), on Washington's first play, Suggs raced past Williams and brought down McNabb for a five-yard loss. The Redskins attempted two deep passes that fell incomplete, punted and did nothing on offense for the remainder of the blowout loss.

Late in the first quarter, with Washington facing third and 1, Suggs drove Williams into the backfield and brought down running back Larry Johnson for a three-yard loss. Williams also was called for a false start.

Of course, it was only a preseason game. Suggs has won many individual battles throughout his career against some of the game's most experienced and talented left tackles. And the Redskins had other major pass-protection issues against Baltimore, especially in blitz pick-ups.


But still, not a great start for a tackle who’s very athletic but was also known as a devastating run blocker and just a pretty good pass protector while in college.

Hot Routes 8.22.10: Injuries and rookie hazing

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Got links for the Hot Routes? Follow us on Twitter or send an email to josh [dot] katzowitz [at] cbsinteractive [dot] com.

-In Baltimore’s win against the Redskins, Terrell Suggs – coming off, by his standards, an unimpressive year – had a good showing . He credits an offseason diet in which he came to training camp considerably lighter.

-Of course, Suggs’ explosion could also be credited to the fact that Redskins rookie LT Trent Williams, who was burned much of the night by Suggs, sustained an elbow contusion . He said the injury would not keep him out long.

-Seahawks RB Leon Washington, who suffered a season-ending injury last year while playing for the Jets, made his Seattle debut an impressive one, rushed for an 11-yard TD (overall, he carried the ball four times for 19 yards). Afterward, Washington declared that he felt healthy.

-Last night, we told you Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman was done for the preseason after fracturing the tip of his thumb. Freeman is just relieved it’s not a more serious injury . His backup, Josh Johnson, went 6 for 10 for 133 yards and a TD. Third-stringer Rudy Carpenter also performed well, completing 8 of 11 attempts for 79 yards and the game-winning score.

-According to Florida Times-Union columnist Gene Frenette, the Dolphins exposed the Jaguars defense during Miami’s one-point win Saturday night. Miami and QB Chad Henne scored on four-straight possessions against Jacksonville’s No. 1 defense.

-In case you figured the injuries to A.J. Feeley’s thumb and elbow would catapult rookie Sam Bradford into the starting QB slot, you might have to rethink that theory . After the game, Feeley said he expects to be back for the team’s next preseason game. The X-rays on his thumb and elbow were negative.

-Neither Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw nor S Antrel Rolle started New York’s game Saturday night, because both were late to team meetings. “I've been around long enough to understand there are consequences, so I took it like a man,” Rolle said.

-And while we’re on the Giants, let’s talk for a second about RB Brandon Jacobs and his stiff neck that kept him from playing. According to Tom Coughlin, the injury came out of nowhere. Apparently, Jacobs hurt himself by doing shrugs while working out.

-If Ben Roethlisberger had his choice, he would have played the entire Steelers-Jets game. Alas, he was just happy to be back on the field.

-Speaking of Pittsburgh, Ed Bouchette of the Post-Gazette thinks the battle for the center spot is finished. Give the job to dominant rookie Maurkice Pouncey now, Bouchette writes.

-Brian Urlacher said the calf injury he sustained on the first series of the Bears game was not a big deal .

-The art of the rookie hazing is not dead in Tennessee. On Saturday, the Titans splashed all of safety Robert Johnson’s non-uniform clothes into the cold tub . Johnson’s cell phone was spared, but not his $160 pair of Jordan’s. The hazing was totally unexpected for Johnson, he said.

Terrell Suggs reports early and lighter

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs has reported to training camp early and looks noticeably sleeker. The eighth-year pro had a tough season in 2009, in part due to injury and in part due to his weight creeping into the 280s. Suggs is back around his 263-pound rookie season weight.
T. Suggs
"I'm good," said Suggs. "Training camp, you always got to get your mind right for training camp. My weight is good, and I don't want to get too low. Last time I got down below 260, I was too small and got my butt kicked against their run. I'm ready to play."

The Ravens hired Suggs’s linebackers coach from Arizona State, Ted Monachino, to coach the outside linebackers in 2010. Ostensibly, Ozzie Newsome made that hire with the idea of improving Suggs’s pass-rushing prowess in mind. Suggs is explosive off the edge, but the greatest aspect of his game is playside run defense. He is as natural a block-shedder as the NFL has to offer.
