Boston College cornerback Al Louis-Jean worked out Thursday in front of representatives from two NFL teams — the Chicago Bears and New England Patriots — at Brockton (Mass.) High School. The workout took place outdoors and run on FieldTurf, and there were 10-15 mile-per-hour wind gusts. Louis-Jean (6-foot-1 3/8, 187 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.68 seconds against the wind and 4.53 seconds with the wind. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-5 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.41 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.03 seconds. Louis-Jean, who has 32 3/4-inch arms, did eight reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Louis-Jean is a free-agent pickup possibility following the conclusion of […]

Cowboys hire Linehan to call plays: Never being a group to shy away from out-of-the-box ideas, the Dallas Cowboys have hired former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan to call plays. But there’s a twist — the Cowboys are also retaining Bill Callahan to be the team’s offensive coordinator. Linehan spent the past five seasons leading the Lions’ offense and turned them into a top 10 outfit over the past three campaigns. While life in Detroit has centered on the passing game, Linehan has had some success running the football in the past. In 2002-03, his Minnesota Vikings were in the top five in rushing yards. The biggest issue could be a divergence of opinion among the team’s braintrust in how to operate […]
Johnson to have surgery: Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson will reportedly undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee. It was the same injury Johnson played a bulk of the season with, likely contributing to a season in which he ran for just 1,077 yards — the second-lowest total of his career. It’s with that production and now a knee surgery that the speedy running back heads into free agency. Since he is adamant against taking a pay cut, it’s hard to imagine Johnson returning to Tennessee next season. However, it could be interesting to see how many teams have an interest in the veteran and what role he would potentially fit into. Amendola could be cut: Speculation is […]
