Aaron Nagler joined Scott and Jeremy on 105.7 The Fan.
New England traded Logan Mankins to Tampa for tightend Tim Wright in a 4th round pick. Buccaneers are absolutely desperate on offensive line and reports of Richie Incognito coming in shows you how desperate they are. We knew during off season they needed to do something. Logan Mankins is not what he was when the patriots were winning Superbowls, but he will be good on the line.
D.J. Swearinger’s hit on Wes Welker now makes 3 concussions in a calender year. According to Nagler if the defender leads with his shoulder it should be okay if he wraps his arms and doesn’t believe it was a dirty hit. Nagler states “You can’t take away everything from the players”. Swearington says the added scrutiny from his hit won’t affect his play.
Brandon Meriweather gets two games regular season suspension for illegal hit on Torrey Smith from Ravens. This is Meriweathers’ 6th offense for illeagel hit to the head. Nagel says “This is a guy that clearly doesn’t get it and he just doesn’t care. He is putting hits on people that are not good and he doesn’t care. “ RGIII had a some rough games in preseason but all Coach Jay Gruden needs to do is get him into rhythm and keep him in rhythm and he will be fine.
