Don’t expect any one running back to carry the load in Green Bay this season.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the demands of the position are such that running backs Jamaal Williams Arian Foster Jersey , Ty Montgomery, and Aaron Jones will all be better off if none of them get too many carries.
“The fact of the matter is we’re going to go running back by committee,” McCarthy told ESPN. “But if one of them would emerge as that full-time guy then you have to have that ability to . . . adjust to that. As far as planning and going into the season, that’s why we’re going about it that way. We feel like we’ve got three guys that have all done it, but they haven’t done it over a long period of time Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , so I think it’s just practical thinking from that position and realizing that it’s a very demanding position.”
Williams led the team with 556 rushing yards, Jones was next with 448 and Montgomery had 273. It sounds like McCarthy would be satisfied with that kind of split again this year, which means all of the Packers’ running backs will get plenty of playing time, but none will finish the season with big numbers.
Even though defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said the Eagles will take their time in sorting out their linebackers, it’s a safe assumption Chuck Howley Jersey , looking at their roster, that Corey Nelson is the frontrunner for the weakside job.
The Eagles released Mychal Kendricks last week, leaving an opening that Nelson hopes to fill.
“I don鈥檛 know what [Kendricks’ release] does,” Nelson said, via Les Bowen of phillynews.com. “I鈥檓 just here to give it my all Tramaine Brock Jersey , to compete to the best of my abilities, and to make this team better. . . . I don鈥檛 know where that puts me at.
鈥淚t kinda surprised me. I talked with [Kendricks], had a good relationship with him. Treated him as he was still gonna be here. It鈥檚 definitely a surprise.鈥?/p>
The Eagles also have Nate Gerry, a fifth-round pick in 2017 who is converting from safety. Gerry played only one game last season, and that was the meaningless regular-season finale against the Cowboys.
Nelson opted to take Philadelphia’s one-year Aaron Colvin Jersey , $2.25 million deal, even though the Broncos offered to match. Nelson played in 53 games with six starts in his four seasons in Denver.
The Eagles are training Nelson at all three spots, though he appears best suited for the WILL.
