  1. Former Tiger and Zona Cardinals’ safety Tyrann Mathieu reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Houston Texans.
  2. Former Punter Donnie Jones, wins his only SuperBowl, also has a NC in college has elected to retire. Brad Wing was let go, could Wing end up taking Jones old job?
  3. In addition to Marlin’s on the record comments, there was other chatter that bothered some players. Tremont Waters, who had 9 points and 7 assists in 24 foul-plagued minutes, got wind that Marlin had called him “an overrated midget” in the build-up to the game. “He said I was an overrated midget,” Waters said. He added that he wasn’t sure if that was an on the record comment or not. “That’s what I heard. But I have nothing to say back to them. I’m cool. I’m human. I know words can’t really hurt me. For him to call me that…have fun driving back to wherever you came from.” If it bothered him, Waters didn’t let it show. His seven assists lead the game, despite a nagging headache. He battled that rattling around his head – the headache was not at all helped by a broken nose and a protective mask – to help lead the Tigers to the win. “It didn’t do anything to me,” Waters said. “I’ve been short all my life. It’s not something I can change. The fact that he pointed it out and said it whatever he said it. For it to come out and get back to me, it was a sign that I must be doing something right. “If a head coach at a university is brave enough to say that about a player, I must be doing something right. My teammates had my back, and Coach Wade had my back also.”

  10. To add, Former LSU DC Phil Bennett's son: Sun Devil Football Names Sam Bennett Offensive Analyst Football Posted: March 12, 2018 TEMPE, Ariz. – Sam Bennett, who served as an offensive graduate assistant the last two seasons, will remain with the Sun Devil football program as an offensive analyst, announced today by head coach Herm Edwards. "I see a lot of potential in Sam Bennett and feel he will be an asset to our program," Edwards said. "I am looking forward to seeing him grow in this role while learning from the rest of the coaches on the staff. His relentless energy is an essential part of how we operate." Bennett will transition into the role of analyst after serving as an offensive graduate assistant the past two seasons. The Sun Devil offense averaged 32.6 points and 411.56 yards per game the past two seasons with Bennett as part of the offensive staff. Bennett worked closely with an ASU offense that finished as the 14th-highest graded unit in the FBS according to Pro Football Focus. Utilizing his background as a former offensive lineman in high school, Bennett worked extensively with an offensive line that paved the way for a 1,000-yard rusher and another 650-yard rusher. The offense scored 30 or more points 16 times in the two seasons Bennett served as an offensive graduate assistant. "I'm excited and appreciative for the opportunity given to me by Coach Edwards and the coaching staff to remain at ASU in this role," Bennett said. "My wife and I are excited to be staying in Tempe and continuing to be a part of the Sun Devil family. I look forward to a great spring and 2018 season here in Tempe." Bennett came to Arizona State to be an offensive graduate assistant after serving in a similar position at Rice University from 2014-16. While at Rice, he earned his Master's Degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences in 2016. Before taking a year off of coaching to work in the private business sector, Bennett coached football, basketball, and track at Scoggins Middle School in Frisco for one year after graduating from Texas Tech with a B.A. in Advertising in December of 2010. The son of 40-year coaching veteran and former Sun Devil defensive coordinator Phil Bennett, Bennett was a two-year letterman at SMU as a deep snapper, earning All C-USA Freshman honors in 2006. He graduated from Highland Park High School in Dallas, Texas, where he was a starter on the Scots' 15-0 state championship squad. He played on the offensive line, blocking for future Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford as well as handling the deep snapping chores. Bennett and his wife Stephanie reside in Tempe.
  11. The longest-tenured player on Buffalo's roster will continue to hold that title for one more season. Kyle Williamsagreed to terms with the Bills on a one-year deal, just a day before becoming an unrestricted free agent. Williams, who will be entering his 13th NFL season in September, said he knew he wanted to continue his professional career pretty early in his decision-making process. "When it comes down to it, as eloquently as I can put it, I haven't exhausted myself in pursuit of what my dream is for playing this game, playing for this organization and chasing being a champion," said Williams. "Buffalo is home, it's where I want to be. It's where I want to win. I couldn't be more excited." The ball appeared to clearly be in Williams' court as the Bills expressed a desire to re-sign the five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle as recently as the NFL combine earlier this month. The two sides had to talk contract, something that really didn't gain much traction until early this week. "The closer we got into the start of what free agency brings, I just really kept my focus on what I wanted to happen and what I wanted to do and we were able to get something done to bring me back where both sides are happy," said Williams. "It's amazing how things can ramp up when there's a league-wide deadline. So the last few days we really sunk our teeth into it and just knocked it out. I've talked to all the staff and everybody is fired up." Set to turn 35 in June, the defensive tackle has been the unquestioned heart and soul of the team, as the Bills successfully ended the franchise's 17-year playoff drought. Williams had a cameo role on offense in the team's season finale at Miami that they had to win to keep their playoff hopes alive when he plunged into the end zone from a yard out after lining up as a fullback. Williams showed no signs of slowing down last season making 16 starts while contributing 41 tackles and finishing second on the team in sacks. Just as valuable as Williams was on the field, it was his leadership in the locker room that helped first-time head coach Sean McDermott reinforce the culture change that had to take place for the Bills to grow into a successful franchise again. "You know how I feel about Kyle and what he's meant to our community in Buffalo over the years and what he's meant to our football team," said McDermott. "He meant a lot to me this past season in the way of connecting my message to the locker room at different points throughout the year so the leadership part of that was big for us. I think the fit is important and the fit is there, obviously."
  12. It more of an in film guy with players they are recruiting.
  13. Arizona State hires longtime NFL offensive lineman Kevin Mawae as offensive analyst Zach Barnett 2 hours ago Arizona State has hired longtime NFL center Kevin Mawae as an offensive analyst, the program announced Monday. “Kevin Mawae is one of the most respected voices in football,” head coach Herm Edwards said in a statement. “He will add a tremendous amount of credibility and knowledge to our coaching staff. I am thrilled that I get the opportunity to reunite with one of my favorite players to coach.” Mawae played college ball at LSU from 1989-93, where he was a two-time All-SEC honoree. A second-round pick in the 1994 NFL draft, Mawae built an accomplished career as a pro, earning seven All-Pro honors and eight Pro Bowl trips over a 16-year career as a Seattle Seahawk, a New York Jet (where he played for Edwards) and a Tennessee Titan. He also deposited a stint as the president of the NFL Players Association. Mawae played his last season in 2009, and spent 2016 as the assistant offensive line coach for the Chicago Bears. The release does not specify what Mawae’s assignment will be. His daughter, Abigail, is a scholarship athlete for the Sun Devils’ swim team, and Mawae’s quote implies today’s news spanned from that connection. “I have a lot of respect for Coach Edwards, whom I played for for five years,” he said. “His character and integrity are second to none. I knew that when my playing career was finished and I wanted to enter the coaching profession that he was the type of person that I wanted to work for. My daughter, Abigail, has signed a letter of intent to swim for Coach Bob Bowman and the Sun Devil swimming program. Both she and I fell in love with the University then.”
