After the Buffalo Bills traded him to the Kansas City Chiefs in late August, 2016 second-round pick Reggie Ragland took some time to recover from a knee injury and adjust to a new environment before eventually playing a significant role at linebacker in November and December.
He’ll now have a better opportunity to get acclimated to the Kansas City defense as he embarks on his first offseason program with the team. And the expectations are high.
Everything is different, Jackson said, per Wyatt. “But it’s cool. I’m learning a new playbook, learning a new style. But I am enjoying it.”
If Jackson is going to make a leap as a sophomore, we might get a feel for it when the Titans hold their first batch of OTAs next week.
As a sophomore with the Washington Redskins in 2017, cornerback Kendall Fuller broke out with four interceptions and 10 passes defensed while earning the fifth-highest qualified grade at the position from Pro Football Focus.
“Like many, I was reluctant about being the featured team on Hard Knocks but once we sat down and talked about it as an organization, I feel a lot better and understand why the time is right,” Dorsey said in a release. “Hue and I both feel like this team is in a good place and that we are in the process of building something that will lead to success. Being a part of Hard Knocks will give our fans the opportunity to see how passionate the people in our building are about winning and how excited we are about getting to work and preparing for the 2018 season.”
Dorsey deserves credit for helping the Browns make moves this offseason, but, likely to his chagrin, he couldn’t keep the team off the show. He’ll probably have to be on the series at some point, and when he does, maybe he’ll play ball. Or even better, maybe he’ll roll his eyes throughout.
I’ve been a part of Hard Knocks and when you experience it first hand, you come to appreciate the inside look it really gives fans, Jackson said in a statement. “We are excited about what we are building within our organization and feel good about the progress we have made this offseason. Being able to bring our fans in so they can get to know our players and our organization in a different way will be a huge positive for us. I want people to see how much our players and coaches care, how hard they work and how badly they want to win for Cleveland. This will be a great opportunity for our team.”
