Bills RB LeSean McCoy is pretty excited about their new offense and how it could open up things up more for him this year.
“Last year we ran the ball very well. I’m blessed to have a great offensive line,” said McCoy, via BuffaloBills.com. “Then you look at the offense, there are times when I’m watching tape of (former Houston running back) Arian (Foster) in this scheme and there are holes. Should I go left? Right? There are holes either way. With this offense they give you different options whether it’s inside or outside. When you want to stretch it, you can stretch it just enough to get the DBs where you want them so you can cut inside.”
“A lot of the good runs we had last year on plays, we’re putting that together,” said McCoy. “That’s like being a kid in a candy store. You couldn’t ask for anything better.”
Steelers WR Martavis Bryant told Dan Graziano of ESPN Thursday that he and QB Ben Roethlisberger should have a “man-to-man” talk about some of the things Roethlisberger previously said about him.
“I feel like we need to,” Bryant said. “We should have a man-to-man. Because some of the things he put out there about me, I kind of didn’t agree with how he did it. So I want to sit down and hear his own opinion, man-to-man, about why he did that.”
Roethlisberger was critical of Bryant last year shortly after he received another suspension.
“I mean, at that time, I was going through a lot of stuff. I wasn’t really even worried about his opinion at that time, because there was just a lot that was going on,” Bryant said. “He’s my brother. I love him. But at the same time, I have my own family outside of football. I have my own problems. I’m not just going to come up to you and open up to you about what’s going on with my personal life. That’s not how I am. We just didn’t see eye-to-eye on that, but as far as right now, everything’s great.”
New Titans DT Sylvester Williams says he’s “loving” his new home in Tennessee so far and he’s hoping to accomplish “big things” next to Jurrell Casey in 2017.
“I am loving it here so far,’’ Williams said, via TitansOnline.com. “I like the way everybody around here is working. I come in and I see the want-to to do big things this year. I think we have a great opportunity. We have great coaches and great players, and that usually creates a great team.”
“I take pride in keeping my linebackers clean and clogging up the middle of the defense,’’ Williams added. “And I know that’s what they brought me in here to do.”
