Ronald Jones

Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ running back Ronald Jones is looking to take a big step forward following a lackluster rookie season.

“Last year, it was definitely disappointing for me for myself and from a team standpoint,” Jones said, according to Eduardo A. Encina of The Tampa Bay Times. “Definitely, for me, it’s about getting on the right track. We have a new system, a new staff, we’re trying to make our mark in here.”

Jones is now healthy, and is looking to make noise in 2019.

“Confidence is definitely key because if you don’t believe in yourself, that you have the ability, these guys, they’re going to show you up,” Jones said.

“These are the best players in the world so when you know what you’re doing, you can just react and not have to think, and I think that’s what I’m doing this year. Just reacting and playing ball. I’m not asking myself, ‘Is this zone, is this man? Do I break out, do I break in?’”

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is opening up to the media about getting “back to normal” following what he calls a “crazy” past few years.

“It’s been a little crazy the last few years,” said Roethlisberger, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. “Maybe moreso than usual that we’re used to dealing with, so to kind of get back to quote, unquote normalcy is kind of nice.”

Despite the losses of big talent such as Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, the future Hall of Famer is confident about this year’s team.

“I really am excited about what we have,” Roethlisberger said. “We put a lot of work in, and that’s what it’s gonna take. It’s gonna take a team effort, and we’re all gonna give everything we have and see where it goes. We can’t predict the future, but we can predict we’re gonna give everything we have.”

Ravens’ Michael Pierce Explains Being Pulled from Minicamp

Michael Pierce

Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Michael Pierce made some headlines when he was pulled from minicamp by head coach John Harbaugh for “a safety standpoint and for his own health.”

Now, Pierce is talking to the media to explain what exactly went down, and taking blame for it as well.

“Throughout the offseason, I tend to lift more than run,” Pierce said, during an appearance on WNSP-FM radio in Alabama (h/t ESPN’s Jamison Hensley). “Being a noseguard, I want to be strong or whatnot. I, honestly, just mismanaged my running a little bit.”

Pierce came into camp over 340 pounds, missed the Ravens’ offseason conditioning program and did not participate in voluntary workouts.

“Out of respect for Coach Harbaugh, he’s been nothing but a fair guy, he just wanted me to get in with the strength and conditioning staff and do more running before camp comes,” Pierce said.
