LAKE FOREST http://www.raidersauthorizedsh…..son-jersey , Ill. (AP) —Leonard Floyd on Wednesday, locking him up through the 2020 season.The move was expected after Floyd played in all 16 regular-season games last season and recorded four sacks, a 19-yard interception return for a touchdown in Week 9 at Buffalo and then added a sack in the wild-card playoff loss to Philadelphia. The Bears were third in the NFL with 50 sacks and ranked No. 1 in a number of categories, including fewest rushing yards allowed (80.0 per game) and fewest points allowed (17.7).Floyd was the No. 9 overall pick in 2016 and is entering his fourth year with the Bears. He was slowed by hamstring and calf issues and twice exited games because of concussions, fueling questions about his durability in an otherwise promising rookie season. He also had surgery on both shoulders at Georgia.The following year, Floyd was placed on injured reserve because of a knee injury in November 2017. He has started 38 games and has 15.5 sacks Devin Bush Jersey , 23 tackles-for-loss and 32 quarterback hits overall.The Bears also hired Brad Childress as senior offensive assistant, bringing back the former Minnesota Vikings head coach for a second stint in Chicago. Childress was a Bears consultant during the 2018 offseason and training camp, and before that spent five years in Kansas City alongside Matt Nagy, now the Chicago head coach. Former Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving, who is out of the NFL because of a drug suspension, said recently that coach Jason Garrett is awkward around black players. Darren Woodson http://www.steelersfootballaut…..-authentic , who has known Garrett much longer than Irving, says that’s not the case.Woodson, who was a teammate of Garrett’s on the Cowboys in the 1990s, said on 105.3 The Fan that Irving couldn’t be more wrong.“That’s ridiculous,” Woodson said. “I don’t even want to spend the time talking about David Irving and those comment. Listen, I’ve known Jason Garrett since 1993 Justin Layne Jersey , and have become good friends with he and his wife. I know the family, not only Jason, but his father, his brother. . . . It’s just hard to swallow these shots going his way when I know the man’s heart, and I know who he is as a person. For people to take shots at him, I don’t care if it’s a current player or former player http://www.steelersfootballaut…..-authentic , I know who Jason Garrett is. I know the man, and I’m a firm believer in him, and have a ton of confidence in him.”Irving and Garrett clearly didn’t see eye to eye, and they may never see each other again, as Irving’s suspension is indefinite. But as Woodson notes, Irving seems to be in the minority in having a problem with Garrett.
