The Saints gave up the pick in the move up to get Davenport this year. The pass-rushing project from Texas-San Antonio had 4.5 sacks (with only 0.5 of them coming after Halloween) and a forced fumble this season, and they're obviously going to need more from him in the future to justify the pick. He had four total tackles in the postseason, including one for a loss and a quarterback hit.
Believe it or not, Cal has become the most prolific school in producing Super Bowl quarterbacks. Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff will be the fourth Cal QB to start in a Super Bowl when the Rams play the New England Patriots on Feb. 3 in Super Bowl LIII. Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers started against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010.
Mike Vrabel has stayed inside the Tennessee Titans' organization for his new offensive coordinator, promoting tight ends assistant Arthur Smith to the job vacated when Matt LaFleur left for the Green Bay Packers' head coaching job. ''I was impressed throughout the season in game-plan meetings with his ideas, in-game with his understanding of situations and the ability to get the most out of his position group,'' Vrabel said. This is the first time for Smith as a coordinator, and he will be the fourth different coordinator and fifth play-caller for Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota going into his fifth NFL season in 2019.
The Green Bay Packers are set to hire Justin Outten as their new tight ends coach, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Outten had been serving as an offensive assistant coach with the Atlanta Falcons the last two seasons after being a coaching intern for the team in 2016. New Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was the quarterbacks coach of the Falcons when Outten was an intern with the team.
