The Saints still are determining Marcus Davenport‘s role early in the season after he missed three weeks of training camp with a groin injury. The first-round draft pick played 15 snaps in last week’s preseason game Youth Darnell Nurse Jersey , making three tackles, one for loss, and a half sack.
But Davenport remains behind, Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen said.
“I think that’s still to be determined http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/dean-lowry-jersey ,” Allen said of Davenport’s role, via Josh Katzenstein of the Times-Picayune. “Certainly, we didn’t draft him just to be a situational pass rusher. We drafted this guy to be an every-down player, so that’s what we’re working to do Brandon Montour Jersey Kids , to try to get him ready to do that. We’ll continue to put him in those situations, and hopefully he’ll be ready to answer the challenge.”
Cameron Jordan will start at left defensive end, and Alex Okafor appears healthy enough to start at right defensive end. Trey Hendrickson also has earned playing time in the rotation, allowing Davenport time to get his feet underneath him.
Saints coach Sean Payton said Davenport will play a lot in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Rams after the rookie defensive end missed the first two exhibition games.
Former Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley is taking over as the NFL Players Association’s director of college scouting.
Whaley will oversee the recruitment http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/clay-matthews-jersey , evaluation and selection of draft-eligible prospects to compete at the annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. He replaces Tony Softli, who left to become the Alliance of American Football’s scouting director.
Whaley was hired Wednesday, a little over a year after being fired by the Bills. He spent eight seasons in Buffalo, including four as GM.
The Bills fired him as part of a major organizational shake-up which began with Sean McDermott replacing Rex Ryan as coach.
Whaley has 22 years of NFL scouting experience Braydon Coburn Jersey , including an 11-year tenure with his hometown Pittsburgh Steelers.
