During a workout he did for NFL teams last month, the running back benched 225-pounds a total of 36 times, then ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds, and also posted a 44.5-inch vertical leap. The vertical jump and the bench press would’ve been the top numbers of ANY player at the combine if he had attended the event in Indianapolis.
If Terron’s workout skills translate to the football field, then he might have a shot of making the Jets’ roster.
Were you surprised when, with the No. 51 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the New York Jetsselected former Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg? If you’re a Jets fan, chances are you were very surprised (and not very happy). Don’t worry, though. You’re not alone.

As for Blank, he’s not saying he wouldn’t vote for a possible Raiders move to Vegas. He’s just saying that he’d like some more information before he potentially has to cast a vote.
As it turns out, the Raiders might have a bigger obstacle to deal with: Owner Mark Davis is going to have to convince the NFL’s other 31 owners that Vegas is a viable market.
