A person with knowledge of the decision tells The Associated Press that the Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with Miami linebacker Cameron Wake on a three-year deal worth $23 million with $10 million guaranteed.The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday night because the signings won’t be official until the NFL’s new year begins Wednesday. ESPN.com first reported the deal.A five-time Pro Bowler Chris Herndon Jerseys 2019 , Wake has 98 career sacks in 10 seasons with the Dolphins. Wake, who turned 37 in January, had six sacks last season.With the Titans, he will help replace retired linebacker Brian Orakpo and linebacker Derrick Morgan, who’s due to be a free agent.The Titans also agreed to terms earlier Tuesday with guard Rodger Saffold with a four-year deal worth $44 million with $22.5 million guaranteed, two people familiar with the agreement told the AP. Saffold, who played left guard the past three seasons for the Los Angeles Rams, is expected to replace Quinton Spain, who becomes a free agent Wednesday.The Titans are looking to better protect Marcus Mariota and improve an offensive line that helped allow 47 sacks last season. Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan asked Saffold on Twitter on Monday if he wanted to be best friends, and Saffold responded Tuesday he’s ready to be best friends and create something special.— Reporting by Teresa M. Walker FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Josh McCown is going from mentor to starter this week for the New York Jets.The 39-year-old quarterback will be under center Sunday against the Buffalo Bills in place of injured rookie Sam Darnold, who’s sidelined with a strained right foot.“I’m ready to rule him out as a starter for this week,” coach Todd Bowles said of Darnold on Thursday. “I don’t know if I’ll rule him out yet for the game.”That means Darnold still could potentially be the No. 2 quarterback on Sunday. If not, Davis Webb would be promoted from the practice squad to serve as McCown’s backup.Either way White Trenton Cannon Jerseys , the starting job is McCown’s — at least for this week.“I’m extremely comfortable with him,” Bowles said. “We talk all the time. He understands the game and the team, and we see things the same way. So I’m comfortable.”McCown has not taken a snap in a regular-season game this season as the Jets have focused on developing Darnold. The No. 3 overall pick won the job out of training camp, but was injured during New York’s 13-6 loss at Miami last Sunday.McCown was the Jets’ starter last season and had a career year before being sidelined the last three games with a broken left hand. Since the summer, McCown has spoken highly of Darnold and expressed excitement about being able to have a hand in the youngster’s development.Darnold has received lots of advice and tips from McCown on the sideline and practice field. Now, he’ll have no choice but to watch.“I say it all the time: That’s why we do this, to play,” McCown said Wednesday when Darnold’s injury was announced. “If that’s the case, you’re torn because your friend and a teammate, it means he can’t go. In that regard, I don’t wish that on anybody, but at the same time as a professional, as a backup quarterback you have to serve your team in that role and go in and play winning football.“That’s what’s fun, that’s what you look forward to and that’s why you play this game. And Trenton Cannon Jerseys 2019 , we’ll go out and compete.”The Jets are ranked 29th in overall offense, including 28th in the passing game. Some of the struggles can be attributed to the inexperience of Darnold, who has an NFL-leading 14 interceptions. During New York’s current three-game losing streak, the rookie has thrown two touchdown passes and seven INTs.So, some might consider the injury a blessing in disguise. It allows Darnold to take a breather and give McCown a chance to perhaps get the offense back on track.“Obviously, Josh has played a long time in this league,” wide receiver Jermaine Kearse said. “So throughout the weeks, he sees things a lot quicker. Just the mental aspects, he’s a lot further, just with his experience and being in the league. So, him just being able to see things a lot quicker, you know, the tempo kind of picked up a little bit.”Bowles made it clear, however White Jamal Adams Jerseys , that this is no long-term solution. When Darnold is healthy, he’ll step right back into the starting role.“Yeah,” Bowles said, “he’s our quarterback.”Even if McCown is playing well when Darnold is fully healthy?“Sam is our quarterback,” Bowles answered.Bowles was then asked why that would automatically be the case with Darnold.“Because he’s our starter and he won the job,” the coach said. “I feel comfortable with him in there and I feel comfortable with Josh in there.”While Darnold is the easy target and he has shouldered the blame for the struggles on offense, the Jets have several other culprits. Center Spencer Long has dealt with a finger injury that has led to several wayward snaps out of the shotgun, disrupting the timing of plays. Wide receivers Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson have been dealing with ankle injuries, and there have been blown plays and dropped passes by several players.“Like I’ve said, we didn’t play well as an offense,” Bowles said. “He didn’t play well last game, but there’s a couple people that have had bad games here and there, so we go from there.”Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates has taken some heat, as well. The Jets are 18th in points with 198 and have scored just 17 touchdowns on offense. They also rank 30th in the league in first-down success (15.8 percent) and third-down conversions (30.8 percent).“We have to score more points and that’s on me Jamal Adams Jerseys 2019 ,” Bates said. “I need to put our players in better positions to be successful, need to put our players in better position to score touchdowns and that’s my responsibility. We have to score points in this league to win football games.”NOTES: CB Trumaine Johnson was a full participant at practice for the first time in more than a month after being sidelined with an injured right quadriceps. He’s planning to play Sunday. “Man, it’s been a month and a couple days, so I’m definitely ready,” he said. “Just sitting out there supporting the team and my teammates is a different feeling, but I’m anxious to get back out there.” … Long (knee/finger), Anderson (ankle), Enunwa (ankle), TE Neal Sterling (concussion) and NT Steve McLendon (ankle) didn’t practice. … LG James Carpenter (shoulder) was limited.
