Growing up, Jacob Eason liked watching a Green Bay Packers legend. “A guy like Brett Favre, a guy like Peyton Manning, teams I watched play on Sundays, were big inspirations in the way they play the game,” the University of Washington quarterback said last week at the Scouting Combine. “Their toughness, their competitiveness, those are […]

World’s Best Preview: Rise of the ‘Elgatron’

To get an appreciation for Elgton Jenkins’ rookie season, let’s start with the most rudimentary measuring stick. Playing time.
