It feels like forever ago, but at the beginning of 2016, Brock Osweiler was the player the Denver Broncos pegged to be the future of the franchise at the quarterback position. Now, 18 months later, he’s back on the team on a discount deal, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.
Covington is a very active player. He’s “only” 6’2 and a little over 300 pounds according to his bio, but man, this kid plays so much bigger than that. To the point where I had to keep going back and rechecking his profile because he just looks much bigger than that on film, both in stature and in how he plays. He’s also a very strong guy. You just don’t see him get pushed off the ball very much, even when he’s taking on double teams.
He’s also very active with his hands against both the run and the pass, which I love. Slippery is the word I would use to describe him in that it’s really hard for offensive lineman to stay engaged with him on their blocks. He just finds a way to slip them and get to the ball.
His effort is also outstanding. I love to see defensive lineman hauling ass to the ball carrier down the field. It doesn’t take any ability to hustle, it just takes heart and Covington has plenty of that.
Judy Battista – “So, if not for that … tweet, you think he would be a Baltimore Raven?”
Ray Lewis – “Then he’s flying him to Baltimore. I am sitting with all three of them and we are all having a conversation about bringing Colin Kaepernick in.“
Lewis’ comments are another piece of the puzzle as to why Kaepernick Cheap Pro Jerseys has not been signed by an NFL franchise this offseason. It’s another reason he’s gone from Cheap Original Soccer Jerseys football stardom to NFL exile.
