Oct 25 2014 - Gerald McCoy (Buccaneers), DT Gerald McCoy signed a seven-year contract extension Saturday. The Buccaneers announced that the deal makes McCoy the highest-paid defensive tackle in the NFL. According to reports, the deal is worth $98 million with $51.5 million guaranteed.
McCoy, 26, was in the final year of his contract. The new deal is through 2021.
"From the moment (coach) Lovie (Smith) and I arrived here, we knew it was vital for us to keep Gerald in Tampa Bay long term as one of the cornerstones of our franchise," general manager Jason Licht said in a statement. "With the backing of the Glazer family, we were able to accomplish that. On the field, Gerald is one of the best players in the National Football League, who has been extremely productive and will be for years to come.
"We are happy to reward someone that has a rare work ethic, which not only makes him an elite player, but serves as an example for our entire team. His commitment, character and leadership are attributes that make him a truly special person, who will play a pivotal role in our future success."
The Bucs made McCoy the No. 3 overall pick in the 2010 draft. He has started all 56 games that he has played, earning trips to the Pro Bowl in each of the past two seasons. He also received first-team Associated Press All-Pro honors in 2013 when he had career highs with 9.5 sacks, 50 tackles and four pass breakups.
McCoy has 17 tackles, including six for loss, two sacks and one pass breakup in five games this season.
Oct 23 2014 - Zach Mettenberger (Titans), QB Zach Mettenberger was named the Titans' starter quarterback for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans at LP Field.
Jake Locker has missed the past two games with a thumb injury, and the naming of Mettenberger could signal the end of Locker's days as the Titans' No. 1 quarterback.
"We are going to go with Zach at QB this week," said Whisenhunt, who said the decision was made Tuesday. "We were still waiting to see where Jake's hand was going to be as far as whether he was going to be the backup or not depending on if he could do that. We feel good after two good days of practice with Jake that he can do that. So that's the order in which we're going to go from this point.
"Unfortunately that (news) got out before we had the opportunity to announce that, but that's the direction we're going. We feel like it's an opportunity to see what Zach can do just like a number of our younger players that have already started to contribute, and we're looking forward to seeing where we go from here."
Mettenberger was a sixth-round selection in this year's NFL Draft, but he had a strong preseason, completing 69.1 percent of his passes for 659 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions and a passer rating of 97.6.
Whisenhunt said the Titans plan to stick with Mettenberger, even when Locker gets healthy.
Mettenberger said it's his team now.
"No matter who that guy is at the quarterback position, it's his team," Mettenberger said. "I've got to step in and take control. I've done that this week, being vocal, making sure we're in the right calls, being on the same page. Absolutely, this is my team now."
Mettenberger has played in just one regular-season game, completing 2 of 5 passes for 17 yards and one interception.
This past week, he was the backup to Charlie Whitehurst, who started Sunday's game against Washington. Whitehurst was 17-for-26 for 160 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in a 19-17 loss to the Redskins that dropped the Titan
Oct 22 2014 - A.J. Green (Bengals), WR A.J. Green (toe) made his first appearance on the rehab field at practice Wednesday and has a chance to play for the first time in three games Sunday against Baltimore.
The Bengals desperately need him to give a jolt to an offense that began last week's game with eight consecutive three-and-outs and finished with 135 yards in a 27-0 loss. But head coach Marvin Lewis said his team's offensive woes will have no bearing on the timetable for Green's return, even in a game as important at this one is with the Bengals looking at the possibility of falling three games behind Baltimore in the win column.
"It's up to when he's physically ready to go," Lewis said. "That decision is not in my hands. When he is significantly healed, he'll be ready to play. He'll know it, I'll know it, and then he'll be ready to move forward.
"He's had the best people in the world -- at least in our country -- examine this, and they've been consistent with their message to him," Lewis continued. "He's seen the people that every NFL player sees, every professional athlete sees, and they've been consistent with the message, and so we've felt pretty good about that."
Oct 22 2014 - Darren Sproles (Eagles), RB Darren Sproles, who suffered an MCL knee sprain against the Giants in Week 6, practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. He is hopeful he'll be able to play Sunday against the Cardinals. If he does play, it's uncertain whether he would return punts.
Oct 20 2014 - Brian Orakpo (Redskins), OLB Brian Orakpo suffered a season-ending torn pec Sunday against Tennessee. Rookie Trent Murphy, who took Orakpo's place against the Titans, figures to assume his starting job beginning next Monday at Dallas.
