Mike Evans Youth Gerald McCoy Jersey , DeSean Jackson and the rest of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The 18th pick overall in 2017 by the Titans, Jackson celebrated picking off a pass to DeSean Jackson Thursday in a one-on-one drill with a flip. With few people on the far side of the field watching, Jackson made sure to flip again after intercepting a pass intended for Tampa Bay tight end O.J. Howard."Back home, they'd give me a 10," Jackson said. "If I was in the Olympics, I probably wouldn't get a high score I don't think. I didn't stick my landing correctly. I didn't do the right things. I didn't tuck or none of that. Everybody said they were scared when I was in the air. ... I'd have gave me a seven."Titans coach Mike Vrabel has no issue with how Jackson likes to celebrate big plays."If he wants to backflip after he intercepts the ball or bats it down, I'm all for it," Vrabel said.The Buccaneers and Titans wrapped up their second joint practice Thursday in a prelude to their exhibition game Saturday night, and these sessions have provided a good preseason test for a Tennessee secondary that wants to be one of the NFL's best, if not the best http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-vernon-hargreaves-iii-jersey , against a group of wide receivers that helped Tampa Bay rank fourth in the NFL last season in passing offense.Evans and his teammates got the best of the Titans on Wednesday with Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter noting that offense should beat defense in 1-on-1 drills. Koetter thought his receivers came out "smoking" with Evans having a really good practice."They've got good corners, we've got good receivers," Koetter said. "It's fun to watch those guys compete."The Titans bounced back Thursday, setting a tone in 1-on-1s with Malcolm Butler breaking up a pass to DeSean Jackson. That's the drill where Butler's teammate used a tip from fellow cornerback Logan Ryan to watch for a specific move. Jackson turned, got his left hand in tipping the ball to himself for the interception."Kudos to Logan for getting me in position, and I just had to make the play," the Titans cornerback said.The 6-foot-5 Evans gave Tennessee a strong test at 6-foot-5 with at least 1,000 yards receiving in each of his first four seasons. Evans also gave the Titans defensive backs a good review."Oh, I like them," Evans said. "Butler White Adam Humphries Jersey , physical, experienced corner. Adoree Jackson, hell of an athlete, and Logan Ryan he has game. Very experienced, very smart."Adoree Jackson called the joint practices a lot of competition with both teams pitting their first-team units against each other."You're fired up," Jackson said. "You're trying to show out, they're trying to show out. They're trying to expose you, you're trying to expose them, and it's all about getting better. Man, I feel like I sweated more in these joint practices than I did my whole life."Both Vrabel and Koetter made it clear before these practices to avoid fighting Youth Vita Vea Jersey , and they were successful with the exception of back-to-back plays with the Titans' first-team offense on the field.Bucs safety Chris Conte hit Titans running back Dion Lewis hard, prompting pushing and shoving. Vrabel and Titans general manager Jon Robinson both ran in to break it up. On the next play with Derrick Henry running, the Titans and Bucs pushed and shoved each other again.NOTES: Bucs rookie Alex Cappa worked at right guard with the first-team after Caleb Benenoch got a bit banged up in the first team period. Koetter said Bennenoch returned. ... Bucs CB Ryan Smith went inside with trainers, and Koetter did not have an update. ... Titans TE Delanie Walker walked gingerly inside with a team doctor after a catch across the middle.Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalker The controversy over NFL players protesting during the national anthem isn't going away, despite — or perhaps because of — team owners' efforts to stop players from using the forum to speak out on political causes.The league's attempt to turn responsibility for disciplining protesters over to individual teams backfired Thursday when the Miami Dolphins tried to categorize raising a fist or kneeling during the anthem as "conduct detrimental to the club." That gave them the right to punish a player with a fine or up to a four-game suspension — one game more than Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston got when he was accused of groping an Uber driver.Hours after The Associated Press reported on Miami's rules, the NFL and the players union issued a joint statement saying they were putting any anthem conduct policy on hold to see if they could come up with a compromise. But the owners aren't left with many good ways to defuse the controversy — especially with President Donald Trump fanning the flames by subtweeting Commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday: "The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand."Here's a look at some of the options:LEAVE IT TO THE TEAMSThe Plan: The league's solution, which the NFL Players Association challenged, was to allow each team to determine whether to punish its own players for protesting during the anthem. The policy adopted in May subjected clubs to fines and required players to stand if they are on the field during "The Star-Spangled Banner White DeSean Jackson Jersey ," though players could choose to stay in the locker room.This would have given hard-line owners in conservative regions a chance to clamp down while allowing teams in more liberal areas to let their players speak more freely. (Trump called for a season-long suspension for a second violation, a penalty that would violate the collective bargaining agreement.)But the league quickly backed off after the Dolphins' rules leaked.The Winners: None. With players punished in some cities and protesting freely in others, there would always be plenty to complain about for those inclined to do so. And everyone seems inclined to do so these days.The Losers: NFL owners. Any punishment would be destined to divide the locker room and the fandom; should a team actually suspend a significant contributor, it would only be hurting itself. And the guarantee of unequal treatment between and within teams would surely keep the issue in the news for yet another season.GO BACK TO THE OLD WAYThe Plan: Ask players to stand at attention during the national anthem, and hope they do.The Winners: Players, who would retain the ability to call attention to causes they believe in, namely racial inequality and police brutality . And Trump, who gets applause any time he attacks the protesting players as he stumps for Republicans in the November midterm elections.The Losers: NFL owners, or at least those like Houston's Bob McNair who have chafed at the notion of the "inmates running the prison." They would lose control and remain a subject of Trump's ridicule.KEEP PLAYERS IN THE LOCKER ROOM DURING THE ANTHEMThe Plan: Players can't protest during the anthem if they aren't on the field during the anthem. Or so the theory goes. But the demonstrations were never about the anthem itself. They started as a way for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to protest racial inequality and expanded into a leaguewide us-vs.-them after Trump hollered at one rally: "Get that son of a bitch off the field."The Winners: Fans who were triggered by the sight of players kneeling during the song. And players, who could surely find another forum for their protests.The Losers: NFL owners. The president has already said this isn't patriotic enough for him White Bryan Anger Jersey , so there's little hope of him easing up on his criticism. And it would cost them the connection to the flag and country they have worked hard to cultivate.COMPROMISEThe Plan: Other sports worked with their players so that they didn't have to protest to be heard. Maybe the owners make a donation to the players' pet projects, play a video on the scoreboard, or otherwise give them a forum for their concerns.The Winners: Players. It's not about the protest, it's about the cause.The Losers: NFL owners. Even if they could stomach the loss of control, the political intrusion on the sport is bound to alienate some fans.STOP PLAYING THE ANTHEM BEFORE GAMESThe Plan: Join almost every other country in the world and skip the forced display of patriotism that demands players stand at attention while fans check their phones, finish their hot dogs or visit the bathroom. If teams want to honor the military or local first-responders, let them do so — free from marketing deals.The Winners: Fans who don't consider the anthem an integral part of the sports experience, giving them another 90 seconds to spend in game-day traffic without missing anything.The Losers. NFL owners. Concessionaires. And a whole generation of American Idol also-rans.EDITORS NOTE: Jimmy Golen covers sports and the law for The Associated Press.
