Lattimore on ‘butt interception’: ‘I must be living right’
There have been plenty of memorable, on-the-ground catches in the NFL.
Antonio Freeman’s Monday Night Football catch against the Vikings that prompted Al Michaels to exclaim he did what!? comes to mind, as does Jermaine Kearse’s leg bobble in Super Bowl XLIX. Even Gary Barnidge’s thigh catch in 2015 could qualify.
Imagine that: Diving to make a play, seeing a live ball deflect up in the air, ripe for intercepting but seemingly out of reach, landing on your leg and staying off the ground and then pinning the still-live ball against your rear end in a game that ended in a win for your team. The only fortune better than that comes in the Mega Millions.
Everybody else was trying to grab it. So I just had to keep it in my possession, Lattimore said.
Davis isn’t opening the purse strings wide just for Gruden. Rapoport reported the coordinators are getting four-year deals. The deals would keep the staff under contract amid the team’s move from Oakland to Las Vegas.
The Raiders are expected to announce Gruden as the new head coach on Tuesday.
Rapoport reported that Gruden has three key coordinators already in place: Rams quarterbacks coach Greg Olson as offensive coordinator, Bengals ex-defensive coordinator Paul Guenther as defensive coordinator, and Cowboys’ Rich Bisaccia to run special teams.
Allen took off from there, had a record-setting season and helped propel the Chargers into playoff contention until the final game. He was rewarded with Sporting News’s 2017 NFL Comeback Player of the Year, in a landslide vote by his fellow players.
