Not long after he was traded from the Steelers to the Raiders http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/ty-montgomery-jersey , wide receiver Martavis Bryant was the subject of a report that he could be suspended for another violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. But as far as Bryant knows, he’s good to go for the start of training camp, and the season.
That’s the word from NFL Network, which reports that Bryant is flying to Oakland now, will be at the first day of camp tomorrow, and hasn’t heard anything about a looming suspension.
That doesn’t necessarily mean the original report was wrong: When a player is a repeat offender like Bryant Eddie Yarbrough Jersey , the NFL has the discretion to suspend him for any slip-up. It’s possible that Bryant did something that violates the letter of the rules in the NFL, but that the NFL has decided to soften its stance on substance abuse, particularly with marijuana offenders, and is going to let Bryant slide.
The Raiders gave the Steelers a third-round draft pick for Bryant, who is capable of being one of the league’s best big-play threats when he’s 100 percent focused on football. It appears that Bryant should be ready to play, with no off-field concerns.
SANTA CLARA Randy Gregory Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Fred Warner isn’t being given time to ease into his NFL career.
The rookie for the San Francisco 49ers is slated to start in his debut on Sunday in Minnesota at a relatively new position of middle linebacker with all the responsibilities that come with calling the defensive signals.
“I’m very excited, being this will be my first start,” Warner said. “I’m just trying to make sure I’m as prepared as possible heading into that game on Sunday. I’m just going to do what I do, which is ball out and make plays and be the leader out there as the Mike.”
The Niners drafted Warner in the third round out of BYU in part because of his ability to guard tight ends, running backs and even slot receivers in the passing game as an outside linebacker.
But Warner has spent most of his time on the inside for the 49ers and is filling the void created by the two-game suspension that has sidelined Reuben Foster.
Now instead of being counted on to show off his coverage skills in space, Warner will need to take on much bigger offensive linemen in the run game for San Francisco.
“I feel like it’s kind of my natural position Reggie Wayne Jersey , you could say,” Warner said. “Obviously, I didn’t do a lot of that in college. But just being out there, I feel like if I wasn’t as natural, I probably wouldn’t be doing as well as I am — and being in the position I’m in.”
Playing middle linebacker comes with lots of responsibility as Warner will be the man relaying the defensive calls from coordinator Robert Saleh to the rest of the defense.
It’s a task he welcomes and that his coaches feel he is more than prepared to handle.
“He was one of, if not the smartest interviews I’ve ever had personally at the combine for a linebacker Tramon Williams Jersey ,” Saleh said. “He’s picked it up well. He’s got great command of it. He’s got a long way to go. I don’t want to crown him quite yet, but he’s a rookie, he’s going to have his peaks and valleys, but we have great confidence in him.”
Warner said he never doubted he was physical enough to play in the box and said most of the critics who said he couldn’t just hadn’t seen him do it. Saleh credited San Francisco’s scouts for finding plays from Senior Bowl week and other games that showed that Warner was willing to take on the contact that he will have to deal with in the middle of the NFL defense.
Saleh said that showed up again in the preseason and he has no questions about Warner’s physicality and ability to tackle.
The bigger challenge this week might come in dealing with Minnesota’s offense that relies heavily on run-pass options that make life difficult on linebackers and has star running back Dalvin Cook healthy again after last year’s season-ending knee injury.
Warner said he has studied film of Cook from last year and Eagles games from last year to try to get a sense of what kind of offense new coordinator John DeFilippo runs. He particularly watched how Philadelphia played against Atlanta and the Chargers last season since those teams run a similar defensive scheme to San Francisco’s.
Dealing with the RPOs that the Niners are anticipating will be key to their success.
“It puts stress on the defense as a whole if you’re not prepared for it,” Warner said. “So that’s why we’re kind of making some adjustments to make sure we’re not getting hit in certain areas where we’re not protected.”
NOTES: LB Malcolm Smith (hamstring) is doubtful. … LB Dekoda Watson injured his hamstring in practice and will miss the game. … T Erik Magnuson (hamstring) is also out Sunday.
