|The Latest on the NFL Honors (all times local):
Aaron Donald is the first pure defensive tackle to win The Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year award since 1999.
Often the province of outside pass rushers and backs 49ers Elite Jerseys , the Los Angeles Rams star broke the trend by earning 23 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. Warren Sapp of Tampa Bay was the previous DT to win the award. Others have been Hall of Famers Joe Greene and Cortez Kennedy.
While the Rams’ defense didn’t rank highly in league stats, Donald was a force. The 2014 top defensive rookie spent 2017 destroying blockers, leading all players at his position with 11 sacks and had 58 pressures while usually being double-teamed.
End Calais Campbell Womens Philip Rivers Jersey , in his first season with the Jaguars, was second with 17 votes. Arizona’s Chandler Jones got five.
Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell‘s holdout this year is officially longer than his holdout last year.
Bell did not attend the Steelers’ team meeting this morning, NFL Network reports. Last year Bell signed his franchise tender on September 1 and attended all of the Steelers’ practices and team meetings in the week before their Week One opener.
Although Bell’s absence this morning doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t play on Sunday against the Browns Deion Sanders Jersey , he is running out of time. It might be a stretch for him to be ready to play having missed the entire offseason and now missing preparations for Cleveland.
Of course, Bell might be fine with that: He may be calculating that he’ll make more money in free agency next year if he takes less punishment on the field this year. Missing a game, or multiple games T.J. Yeldon Jersey , at the start of the season lessens his risk of injury and increases the chance that he’ll be healthy heading into free agency.
So it won’t be surprising if Bell’s holdout continues, at least long enough that he won’t play on Sunday.
