It was the University of Alabama’s Pro Day on Wednesday and there were enough NFL personnel execs and coaches on hand that it felt a bit like the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
One difference was that wide receiver Calvin Ridley opted not to go through the same drills that he performed at the combine. Tim Daniels of Bleacher Report reports that Ridley did not run a 40 or do any of the other athletic testing from Indy, opting to run routes and do other positional work instead.
No terms were released, but the deal is reportedly worth $14 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter . It was expected that Suh – who was also being pursued by the New Orleans Saints , Tennessee Titans , and New York Jets (until Sunday when they rescinded their offer) – would sign a long-term, big-money deal, so it’s somewhat of a surprise he inked a one-year contract. However, considering the Rams will either have to pay Donald on the same level as the likes of Von Miller either this offseason or next, it’s a logical move for L.A. not to lock up too much money in one position.
Baker, 30, previously spent five seasons in Washington, where he made 168 tackles and 11.5 tackles.
“They’re fraternal twins that are two years older than me. When you’re a kid, a youngster growing up, and you have two older brothers who are Packers fans, picking on me a little bit, now the tables are turned and they’ll be supporting the Honolulu blue and silver and I’m fired up about that.”
In additional to being a Lions fan, Willson’s college position coach was former Lions tight end David Sloan.
Since being drafted in the fifth round out of Rice in 2013, Willson has spent his entire five-year pro career with Seattle. Never a top option in the passing game, he’s averaged 18 catches for 226 yards per season. He’s hauled in 11 touchdowns, including a career-high four last season.
