Trevor Lawrence thinks highly of Travis Etienne

Jaguars teammates Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne have been on the same line for five years, but the quarterback has never seen his teammate like this. “I honestly think he looks like he’s in better shape than I thought he was in our senior year at Clemson,” Lawrence said Saturday of the RB sophomore. That’s saying something considering Etienne had 6,107 yards and 78 touchdowns in his four years at Clemson, and both Lawrence and Etienne were drafted in the Jaguars’ first round in 2021. Unfortunately, the all-star RB didn’t play a single try in his rookie year after suffering a serious foot injury in preseason. But after a whole campaign to sit down and get his body in order, Etienne is even better than before, at least according to his longtime quarterback. “Obviously he was great, great playing, everything, he was fine,” Lawrence said of Etienne before his setback. “But now his body looks great, I think he runs very well, catches the attack, did a great defense. All the things we ask him to do, he did a great job.”

Miles Sanders still RB1 in Philadelphia

This week, the state of the Eagles’ running back depth chart was called into question when viewers spotted sophomore Kenneth Gainwell running with the first team under the name of Miles Sanders, Philadelphia’s top player in 2019 and 2020. was with the second team. Eagles coach Nick Sirianni dispelled the notion that Sanders was being phased out, noting that Philadelphia rotated their top three defensemen (including Boston Scott) during this portion of training. Sanders’ status as RB1 does not change. “Miles is our guy,” Sirianni said. “It just so happened that the numbers worked like that, but Miles was in [No.] 1s too. …There is no secret. Miles is our guy and we love to switch backs.” Point accepted. As for a fellow playmaker whose future with the Eagles is unclear, Philadelphia’s 2020 first-round pick Jalen Reygor is working with the second team and “struggling for a spot,” Sirianni said, in the receiving body and return game. It remains to be seen if Reagor is Philadelphia’s “boy” in the WR rotation or gets kicked and punted.

Raheem Mostert Brings the Heat to Miami

A knee injury at the end of last season did not slow down Raheem Mostert. The running backs of the current Dolphins are already burning teammates in practice and setting speed records in what is arguably the fastest roster in the league. Miami Coach Mike McDaniel told reporters on Saturday that Mostert showed the best speed in Friday practice. Like this. Not Jaylen Waddle or Tyreke Hill, who announced on Friday that the Dolphins WR tandem will be the fastest of all time. No wonder Mostert has a next gear that other speedsters don’t have. The former 49ers quarterback has recorded two of the highest playing speeds in the league since 2020 (23.09 and 22.73 mph). Hill’s top speed, meanwhile, is a measly 21.91 mph. Don’t freak out, Tyrek!
