Falcons rookie wide receiver Calvin Ridley is soaking up the knowledge from one of the best in the league in teammate Julio Jones.
Ridley told AL.com that Jones is like a coach on the field [url=http://www.saintscheapstore.com/bobby-hebert-jersey-cheap]Bobby Hebert Jersey[/url] , with an “amazing” wealth of knowledge about the game.
“Everybody knows Julio is really, really good,” Ridley said. “But people don’t really know how good he is. He’s so detailed in the plays. He knows everything. He’s like a coach. He coaches me on everything. Even if I do it right [url=http://www.falconscheapstore.com/deion-sanders-jersey-cheap]Deion Sanders Jersey[/url] , he’s still going to coach me: ‘You could do it better like this. You could lean on him. You could . . .’ So it’s like having another coach on the field.”
The Falcons took Ridley out of Alabama with the 26th overall pick in this year’s draft, seven years after they took Jones out of Alabama with the seventh overall pick in the draft. It may not be realistic to think Ridley will become the kind of player Jones has, but the Falcons would love to see him soak up everything Jones has to teach.
Defensive end Rakeem Nunez-Roches signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday and will make just under $2 million next season.
Nunez-Roches was the Chiefs' sixth-round pick in 2015 [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/garrett-celek-jersey-cheap]Garrett Celek Jersey[/url] , and at one point was waived by the club early in his career. But he has proven to provide valuable depth along the defensive line, an area where Kansas City was thin heading into this offseason.
Nunez-Roches started 11 games and played in every one last season. He has 51 tackles in his career.
The Chiefs signed Xavier Williams in free agency, and Chris Jones [url=http://www.buccaneerscheapstore.com/warren-sapp-jersey-cheap]Warren Sapp Jersey[/url] , Allen Bailey and Jarvis Jenkins will be back next season. But the Chiefs could still add another defensive lineman over the last two days of the draft, particularly in the later rounds Saturday.
