Zach Wilson to start preseason opener, limited to ‘one or two’ series

Zach Wilson To Start Preseason Opener, Limited To ‘One Or Two’ Series

Zach Wilson will start but with limited opportunities in the preseason opener Friday, the quarterback’s first action against another team since his disappointing rookie campaign ended seven months ago.

Wilson is scheduled for “one or two” series with the starters against the Eagles, according to coach Robert Saleh, before transitioning to backups Joe Flacco and Mike White, in that order.

“If the starters put together a good first series, we’ll call it a day,” Saleh said. “If not, we’ll try to go out there and get a certain amount of plays.”

For Wilson, the series in Philly are a culmination of a rollercoaster training camp that started poorly in the team drills but looked more promising in the final week. Wednesday was another strong day from Wilson, who led a drive with a sidearm bullet to Elijah Moore and a touchdown pass to Corey Davis.

Wilson completed all five of his pass attempts on the drive.

“It’s been good. The game is slowing down, all those good things,” Saleh said. “Obviously there’s another level that’s going to be reached. But really like the way he’s approaching every day. He’s unflappable in terms of not losing confidence.”

Wilson, one of the NFL’s worst-rated quarterbacks last season with more interceptions (11) than touchdowns (9), has boilerplate expectations for the first scrimmage.

“The biggest thing is going to be clean football, we have to go out there with no penalties. There’s going to be the penalties, but it’s going to be the pre-snap penalties that you need to avoid,” Wilson said. “I would say there’s the missed assignments that we need to avoid. We need to look like a football team out there.”

OPEN TACKLE

With Mekhi Becton done for the season because of a fractured kneecap, Robert Saleh declared an open battle for his vacant position.

“The whole right tackle spot is open,” the coach said Wednesday, declining to name a starter for Friday’s preseason game against the Eagles.

Rookie Max Mitchell, a fourth round pick out of Louisiana-Lafayette, took the starter snaps in Wednesday’s practice, one day after 25-year-old Chuma Edoga filled that role.

Conor McDermott, a six-year veteran, is a strong candidate but is out in the short term with an ankle injury sustained over the weekend.

The Jets have also been open about their desire to sign free agent Duane Brown, who brings the strongest pedigree as a five-time Pro Bowler but is also turning 37 this month.

Asked about juggling development with immediate production from the right tackle, Saleh indicated he’d be less tolerant of growing pains. Such a philosophy would point to Brown, if he’s ever signed, although he’s theoretically less familiar with the system after missing training camp.

“The most important thing, no offense to anybody on our team, is to protect the quarterback,” Saleh said. “So the person who is best prepared to protect the quarterback will be out there.”

KICKING COMPETITION

Perhaps no roster battle will be determined more by the preseason than field goal kicker, a contest which remains “neck-and-neck” between incumbent Eddy Piniero and free-agent signing Greg Zuerlein.

“Fans don’t get mad, there’s going to be some fourth downs when we send the kicking unit out instead of going for it,” Saleh said. “And it’s for a reason. We want to see where those guys are at.”

The Jets haven’t had a kicker with more than 33 field goals since Nick Folk, who left the team in 2016.

BROTHERLY LOVE

As the heat saturated Florham Park and training camp advanced to its final days, the number of scuffles between Jets players increased during the drills.

Nothing advanced to full-on brawl, and Saleh acknowledged he can’t take the moral high ground on this topic.

“I’m 43 years old and this morning I was in an argument my brother,” he said. “You just fight with your siblings. And it took me back to being a junior in high school when I suplexed him right on his face in the living room.”

‘Lower your salary, b****’ – Barcelona fans appear to be yelling abuse at Frenkie de Jong as they arrive at the training ground amid pay cut saga

'Lower Your Salary, B****' - Barcelona Fans Appear To Be Yelling Abuse At Frenkie De Jong As They Arrive At The Training Ground Amid Pay Cut Saga

Frenkie de Jong appears to have become the second Barcelona player in a week to receive a hostile reception from the club’s fans.

This time however, the fans seem to be going beyond the Nou Camp, telling the midfielder exactly what they think of him outside of their training ground.

De Jong owes Barcelona £17m in deferred pay

In footage posted to Twitter, the Manchester United and Chelsea transfer target was seen arriving at Barca’s facilities in his car.

But he didn’t get a very warm reception from the fans watching.

“Serious insults to Frenkie de Jong upon his arrival at Sports City,” the post read.

Translated from Catalan, we hear the fans watching shouting: “Lower your salary, b****!”

The Dutch star has reportedly received £17million in salary from his club and has also been asked to take a pay cut as the La Liga giants are deep in debt.

But Jong has reportedly rejected the option of seeing his salary cut, angering Barcelona fans.


Any upset Barcelona fan could be in for rejoicing, with Chelsea close to finalizing a deal to sign De Jong.

talkSPORT’s Alex Crook adds that an update on the player’s future could be coming in the next 24 hours.

The incident outside Sports City comes just days after Barca striker Martin Braithwaite was booed by his own fans at Camp Nou as he walked onto the pitch ahead of the Barcelona friendly. Joan Gamper Trophy against Mexican team Pumas UNAM on Sunday.

Like De Jong, Braithwaite also refused to take a pay cut.

Tua Tagovailoa picks Tom Brady’s brain, Dolphins downplay tampering storyline at joint practice with Buccaneers

Tua Tagovailoa Picks Tom Brady’s Brain, Dolphins Downplay Tampering Storyline At Joint Practice With Buccaneers

This could’ve been awkward for Tua Tagovailoa. He’s at a Miami Dolphins joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where, on the other side, is a quarterback the organization wanted bad enough to violate NFL rules in pursuit.

But Tagovailoa didn’t view it as such when his team had its first of two joint sessions with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers at their practice field in Tampa on Wednesday.

Instead, the Dolphins signal-caller saw an opportunity to pick the brain of the future Hall of Famer who has seven Super Bowl rings and many deem the greatest of all time.

“Twenty-three years playing. That’s a long time,” said Tagovailoa, entering his third NFL season. “That’s a lot of knowledge, so I was asking him some things, and he gave me some good insight on it.”

What kind of things?

“I’m going to keep that between me and Tom.”

It was good that Tagovailoa heard whatever he picked up from Brady directly from the man himself, because coach Mike McDaniel didn’t want his quarterback watching the other field where Brady was facing the Dolphins defense.

“I would actually be very disappointed if he did,” McDaniel said. “He’d probably be taking a sack if he was watching because there’ll be simultaneous plays. … Contrary to popular belief, Tua doesn’t play one snap against Tom Brady.

“It’s more about going against a different defense that, not just schematically, but how they play football with different techniques that they emphasize. Those things are a big part of the NFL game. You’re adjusting every week, so those subtle difference are huge differences.”

But Tagovailoa already knows enough about Brady’s game to be aware of what impresses him, with his composure in the pocket topping the list.

“Nothing really rattles him,” Tagovailoa said. “When you got a guy in your face, subtle movements and throwing the ball. I would say those are top-trait qualities in a really great quarterback with him, [Russell Wilson], Aaron Rodgers, all those big-time guys.”

While the Dolphins defense on Wednesday was able to rattle Brady in spurts, Tagovailoa had a mostly efficient day against a vaunted Buccaneers defense. He had multiple connections to new star receiver Tyreek Hill for sizable gains, found Jaylen Waddle, Cedrick Wilson Jr. and rookie Erik Ezukanma each at least once and didn’t make any major mistakes.

If any, he held on to the ball too long for a coverage sack. Once, he stumbled rolling to his right, and it caused him to throw behind Hill, allowing Tampa safety Antoine Winfield to break up the pass. Tagovailoa also came up empty in situational drives, although one apparent touchdown pass to River Cracraft was brought back.

His efforts came against different looks than he had faced through two weeks of training camp in Miami.

“We get a lot of press-man. Tampa has a lot of off-man, off-zone, and they have a fair amount of disguises with what they do,” Tagovailoa said.

It didn’t bother Tagovailoa that findings of an independent investigation into the Dolphins tampering with Brady revealed on Aug. 2 that Miami had illegal communication with the all-time passer both in 2019, when Brady was a member of the New England Patriots and Tagovailoa was still in college at Alabama, and 2021, with Brady on the Buccaneers and Tagovailoa in his second season with the Dolphins.

“They picked me,” Tagovailoa simply put it. “It’s 2022. I’m still here. To me, that’s all noise at this point.”

McDaniel, too, downplayed the impact the tampering penalty, which docked the Dolphins of a 2023 first-round pick and 2024 third-round selection while fining owner Steve Ross $1.5 million.

“What happened?” he replied wittily to a question about it. “For me, nothing happened. Everyone else is the one making it awkward. Doesn’t occupy a single iota of space with anybody we have. It’s hard enough to be good in this league. As the Miami Dolphins, all of our energy is very coordinated and only has to do with us getting better.”

Before Wednesday’s practice, the Dolphins had an off day in Tampa and some of the players celebrated the birthdays of tight end Durham Smythe and linebacker Duke Riley between a stroll through a local mall and dinner at Ocean Prime. Tagovailoa said he picked up a tab of more than $1,000.

Mindy Kaling Opens Up About Losing Her Mother, 'Never Have I Ever' Season 3

Celebrities

The Cambridge native’s Netflix show returns for a third season on Friday.

Mindy Kaling has always put her own life into her work, whether in front of or behind the camera. The Kaling-produced Netflix hit ‘Never Have I Ever’ also has plenty of fingerprints on the Cambridge native, but not in the way you might think.

In a cover interview with Marie ClaireKaling discussed the genesis of the Netflix show, which returns for Season 3 on Friday. Bela Bajaria, Head of Netflix for Global TV, originally wanted Kaling to create a show based on his funny anecdotes from his clumsy childhood. in suburban Boston, which Kaling chronicled in a series of memoirs.

Instead, Kaling took the overall premise — a coming-of-age comedy about an awkward Indian-American teenager — and used it as a vessel to tell a dark, heartfelt story about heartbreak.

In “Never Have I Ever,” protagonist Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) experiences many standard teen dramas involving boys and groups of friends, while struggling to process the untimely death of her father, which viewers discover early on. brought her to temporary paralysis. .

Kaling, who lost her mother, Swati Chokalingam, to pancreatic cancer in 2012, explained how her “two years of anguish” over Swati’s death led her to create “Never Have I Ever”.

“Losing my mother and then wanting to talk about it in a way that’s not as sad as the experience of going through her, but being able to say, ‘If you went through something like that, you could look at that and feel seen’.” – I think that was the point,” Kaling told the magazine.

According to Kaling, her memories of her mother have changed over time, which can also be seen in the series.

“When [Devi] loses his father in the first season, the heartbreak does not go away. He’s still there,” Kaling said. “I feel the same way about my mother. I still live his loss. But the way I experience her loss now, the focus shifts as she gets further and further away. I remember now, not so much the times when she was sick and dying, but the lessons I learned from her when she was young and healthy.

“That’s what I love doing on the show with Devi and her dad, Mohan,” Kaling continued. “To see her have fond memories of him and give him some advice, I think it was really important to do that, instead of just focusing on the anguish she felt about losing her favorite parent.”

In a lighter interview with Stephen Colbert, Kaling explained why she decided to end “Never Have I Ever” after four years, despite her reservations.

“I thought four seasons would be perfect for a high school show,” Kaling said. “And now I say to myself, why am I [ending] this? I like money.”

Colbert noted that four seasons for four years of high school makes perfect sense.

“It’s a great place to end it,” Kaling added. “We knew what the ending would be when we started it. But you know what it’s like to get a show off the ground – it’s taken years. It’s like having a baby. I love writers, I love this group of people. […] So we say goodbye, but I’m sad.

Ex-Vikings star Randall Cunningham on why he resigned as Raiders’ chaplain

Ex-Vikings Star Randall Cunningham On Why He Resigned As Raiders’ Chaplain

When former star quarterback Randall Cunningham resigned last month as the Las Vegas Raiders’ team chaplain, he didn’t give much of a reason. He has now.

Cunningham, who played for the Vikings from 1997-99, said in a phone interview this week that he stepped down July 20 because he no longer felt wanted by the Raiders under new head coach Josh McDaniels. Cunningham was hired in 2020 by former coach Jon Gruden, who resigned last October after old emails he wrote including racist and homophobic slurs surfaced as part of the NFL’s investigation into the workplace culture of the Washington Commanders.

“I kept calling and calling and calling, trying to contact the right officials to get the OK on what the direction was with Coach McDaniels, but it just went by, and finally I said, ‘I don’t think I’m needed here anymore,’ ” said Cunningham, a longtime Las Vegas resident, former UNLV star and pastor at Las Vegas church Remnant Ministries.

Cunningham said he tried to reach out to Raiders owner Mark Davis after McDaniels was hired Jan. 31 but didn’t hear anything. He said he left about three messages for McDaniels after he was hired and did finally get a text from him about two months later.

“He texted me one time and he said, ‘I’m looking forward to you and your involvement here. And I said, ‘Feel free to call anytime.’ And I never received a call back,” Cunningham said. “And I just figured that was kind of like a sign for me it is time for me move on.”

When Cunningham played for the Vikings, he said, team chaplain was Keith Johnson was very close to the players and he had hoped to establish a similar structure with the Raiders.

“The players really need someone who is going to be like a brother, a father figure — someone they can lean on and talk to outside of the organization — and that’s what we had in Minnesota,” Cunningham said.

The Raiders did not immediately return a message asking about Cunningham’s departure.

Cunningham played in the NFL from 1985-95 with Philadelphia and from 1997-2001 with the Vikings, Dallas and Baltimore. He made three Pro Bowls with the Eagles and one with Minnesota in 1998, when he also was first-team All-Pro for the only time in his career.

The Vikings open the preseason Sunday at Las Vegas, but Cunningham will not attend the game.

Cunningham was hired by Gruden, who once was his offensive coordinator in Philadelphia. He told the Pioneer Press last November that he never has considered Gruden, who used to attend his church regularly, a racist and reiterated that this week.
