Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles kick off the defence of their title and the beginning of the 2018 season by hosting the Atlanta Falcons on September 6. The clash will be a rematch of the NFC divisional round playoff game which was won by the Eagles 15-10.
Borland has tried to bridge those two populations with his work with the After the Impact Fund, which facilitates custom treatment plans for veterans and athletes with traumatic brain injuries.
The similarities and the overlap is they both are young when they start off and young when they’re done as well for the most part, Joe Borland said.They potentially would have suffered similar injuries but in a different way. The impacts in the NFL and the impacts we might have with an explosion or trauma in the military can be similar. Those brain injuries are why the 27-year-old Borland retired from football three years ago in a decision that shocked many outsiders, but was one his brothers knew came from careful consideration. Borland was a third-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft by San Francisco after a stellar college career at Wisconsin, where he was Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and a second-team All-American in 2013.
I absolutely loved being a Jacksonville Jaguar, Posluszny said. I tried to give everything that I could while I had the privilege of serving here. Thank you for sharing your locker room with me. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it for the time I was here. It was an honor and it was pleasure. I loved every minute of it.
I love the game too much and I respect it too much to not be able, physically, to do everything that I’ve done in years past. If that’s a year too early, I’ll regret it, but I’d rather be a year too early than one play too late.
Arm strength is often the minimum requirement to be considered a Day 3 project. If teams see velocity on the ball and an ability to heave throws deep with passable accuracy, then a quarterback has a chance of finding himself on a roster at the beginning of training camp.
That’s the best way to describe Kurt Benkert in the days leading up to the draft.
Like most of the possible mid-round developmental quarterback picks, Benkert has attractive size (6’4 and 215 pounds) and arm strength. He leaned on the latter quality to throw for 3,207 yards in 2017, his single-season high in college.
