Pack in the Pros

WATCH: Nyheim Hines uses a spin move to score his first NFL touchdown

Published

on

During training camp, it seemed as if former Wolfpack RB Nyheim Hines would be seeing a decent number of snaps in his rookie campaign. However, a preseason fumbling problem cast doubt on his role with the Colts.

Now, after 2 weeks, it seems as if the Colts staff is looking past those fumbles and giving him a chance to shine in the regular season.

Last week Hines had the most surprising performance of any Pack pro. He was 3rd on the depth chart heading into the game, and he ended up playing 37 snaps and was targeted in 14 of them. Hines had 5 carries for 19 yards and 7 receptions (9 targets) for 33 yards in the Colts 23-24 loss to the Bengals.

This week, while he didn’t have quite as much usage, Hines did finally hit pay dirt. His 4 carries only went for 7 yards, but one of them was this nifty little touchdown run. Check it out…

Stay tuned as we’ll have a full Week 2 update on all Pack Pros.

Josh Jones Wants Packers to Trade Him

Published

on

Former NC State Safety Josh Jones wants to be traded from the Packers according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

According to Demovsky, Jones is skipping voluntary OTA’s, and working out on his own in Florida.

I’m guessing Jones didn’t appreciate Green Bay drafting Safety Darnell Savage in the 1st Round a month ago, with the 21st overall pick.

Obviously Jones would like to be traded to a team where he can start, but there are plenty of other Safeties on the market.

Jones was drafted by the Packers with the 61st overall pick, in the 2nd Round of the 2017 NFL Draft, after leaving NC State after his Junior year.

Former NC State Safety Adrian Wilson has received a promotion in the Arizona Cardinals organization.

For the past 4 years, Wilson has served as a pro/college scout, but recently was promoted to Director of Pro Scouting.

After playing three seasons at NC State, Wilson was drafted in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2001 NFL draft

Wilson played 12 seasons for the Cardinals, and is in their Ring of Honor, and was on the Hall of Fame ballot last year for the first time, and I made the case last year that he deserves to join the club one day.

Former All-ACC NC State Offensive Lineman Tony Adams has signed with the Miami Dolphins.

After going undrafted last year, Adams signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, Adams failed his physical, and was released. Near the end of this past season, the Patriots signed Adams to their practice squad for 5 games, including 3 playoff games.

Before it dissolved, Adams was playing for the Atlanta Legends in the AAF.

Adams earned the 5th highest grade of any Offensive Guard in the nation his Senior season at NC State, according to ProFootballFocus.

Bradbury is the first interior lineman drafted in the 1st round by the Vikings since Randall McDaniel in 1988.

“It’s awesome to get it done,” Bradbury said. “It’s done … I’m a Viking.

“It’s good that I can put this to rest and get back to football,” Bradbury added.
