A Look At NFL.com’s Top Remaining Free Agents More The jump from the Oakland Raiders three free agent signings in 2017 to the 16 free agent signings in 2018 is eye-opening, and if I had to guess, Head Coach Jon Gruden and General Manager Reggie McKenzie aren’t done yet. The duo have been persistent in their pursuit of bettering the 2018 roster, and with additions like wide receiver Jordy Nelson and linebacker Tahir Whitehead, I think they’ve done that. Free agency is a little more than two weeks in now, and many of the NFL’s premiere free agents have signed deals with teams; however, there are plenty of players still out there on the market.

I can listen to all the people patting me on the back, or I can listen to the people saying I need to get better. I know I need to get better, or else there would be nobody saying that. Keeping a list of all the haters is one way to go about it. It also may not be a great trait. Mayfield’s former tight end Mark Andrews, who has no motive to malign Mayfield, perfectly encapsulated Mayfield’s mindset, for better or worse.

I think the impetus was research, McKay said. The more we saw of the concussion plays and the more there was a common technique, it became apparent that, listen, we need to get out of situationally saying if a player is targeted or if a defenseless player is in the air — we need to get to the technique to protect the person doing the hitting also. It could be Ryan Shazier. It could be many others. I don’t think that play was the impetus because I think that the research and the data was there before.

Many players have taken to social media to express concern about the change.

In all honesty the refs already pretty bad with enforcing the defenseless player rule!, Lions defensive back Quandre Diggs wrote on Twitter. We have people that’s never played the game making rules!patriots_092-223x223
