|J.T. Barrett peeled off the orange No. 5 practice jersey LeSean McCoy Bills Jersey , tossed it in a laundry bin and headed for the locker room. He stopped at one intersection and tried to get his bearings 鈥?he'd never had to navigate the Paul Brown Stadium passageways. The record-setting Ohio State quarterback quickly found his way back to his locker and did a few interviews. That's pretty much all that's left for him to do between now and the NFL draft, when Barrett finds out whether he'll get chosen in one of the later rounds or have to extend his career as a free agent.
"I don't know if I'm out to prove anything or change people's minds," Barrett said. "What's out there on me as far as tape 鈥?that's who I am. I'm still striving to develop and get better. I don't think I'm a finished product yet."
The dual-threat quarterback worked out at the NFL combine and has been keeping in shape in Columbus. He was one of 35 local draft-eligible players who worked out for about 45 minutes at the Bengals' stadium Tuesday in a cold, northern wind.
Barrett and Florida quarterback Malik Zaire threw passes to receivers from Thomas More, Cincinnati, Miami of Ohio, Kentucky and Akron. Barrett took snaps in a shotgun formation at Ohio State; Bengals coaches worked with him on his footwork Tuesday.
"I thought it was smooth," he said. "They changed the footwork I'm normally accustomed to doing. I couple of throws I wish I had back, but it happens."
Barrett won a school-record 38 games at Ohio State and was a key part of the 2014 national championship season. He took over when Braxton Miller suffered a shoulder injury and went 11-1 as the starting quarterback. He broke his right ankle in the fourth quarter of the final regular-season game against Michigan, and Cardale Jones led the Buckeyes the rest of the way to the title.
Last season, he struggled in losses to Oklahoma and Iowa. His inconsistency, his arm strength and his low completion percentage for downfield throws work against him in the draft.
NFL teams have suggested changes in how he gets ready to throw.
"Unless you're some guy that has a funky release or a slow release and throwing motion, they don't really try to touch your arm Tyler Naquin Jersey ," he said. "The biggest thing is the footwork and the hips."
As a four-year starter at Ohio State, Barrett set school records for career passing yards, passing yards per game, completions, completion percentage, touchdown passes and total offense. He also holds numerous Big Ten records.
A few weeks ago, Barrett sat down for an interview with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who took over Jon Gruden's "QB Camp" show on ESPN this year. Wilson interviewed four draft prospects for the show, which has been renamed "QB2QB" and airs this week for the first time.
"He was saying to be myself," Barrett said. "He said it's worked for you, continue to do that. He said to be yourself and everything will work out."
AP Sports Writer Mitch Stacy in Columbus, Ohio contributed to this report. 鈥?Fox and the NFL have agreed to a five-year deal for Thursday night football games.Those games previously were televised by CBS and NBC, two of the league’s other network partners. Fox announced Wednesday that it will televise 11 games between Weeks 4 and 15 http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-d.j.-fluker-jersey , with simulcasts on NFL Network and Fox Deportes.Fox, which has the Sunday afternoon NFC package, will produce all of the games under the deal, which is worth a little more than $3 billion, according to a person with direct knowledge of the terms of the deal who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league didn’t announce its value.“This is a single partner deal, we are not splitting the package,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a conference call. “We had tremendous amount of interest from all the broadcast partners, all of whom wanted it exclusively. We felt this was the best opportunity for the NFL to grow the Thursday night package.”Goodell added that the league is exploring partnerships with digital outlets, also in conjunction with Fox.The NFL has broadcast deals “five years out” with its other partners 鈥?ESPN has the Monday night package 鈥?so five years on this agreement made sense.“Fundamentally, Fox was built on football,” said Peter Rice, president of 21st Century Fox, nothing that 25 years ago Browns Antonio Callaway Jersey , the NFC package “helped launch a fledgling network into what it is today.”“These opportunities come along very, very infrequently,” he added. “You either have the rights to the most-watched content in media or you don’t. If you don’t take the opportunity, this won’t come up again for five years. We believe in buying the very best rights, and the best rights are the NFL.”CBS and NBC each paid $450 million for the previous two-year package.“We explored a responsible bid for Thursday Night Football but in the end are very pleased to return to entertainment programming on television’s biggest night,” CBS said in a statement. “At the same time, we look forward to continuing our terrific long-term partnership with the NFL on Sunday afternoons, with more than 100 games per season including next year’s Super Bowl 53.”Fox could have a conflict if weather causes a World Series game to be postponed from Wednesday to Thursday. In recent years, Series Game 2 and 6 have been scheduled for Wednesday.“In that hypothetical kind of a scenario, the World Series game would stay on Fox and our Thursday night game would become an FS1/NFL Network simulcast,” Fox spokesman Eddie Motl said.Goodell noted that the Thursday night games are a place for innovation.“One of the things we’ve taken into consideration with Thursday night in general is to evolve this package, to use it as an opportunity to learn, to understand where these various platforms are going Harold Landry Titans Jersey , and what we can do to make it a more attractive experience for our fans,” he said. “We will look at that in that context, and the term will be consistent with what it will take to make sure that we continue to evolve that platform as well as the experience for our fans.”That means streaming outlets, of course.“We have accepted bids for digital partners,” Goodell said. “We have very healthy competition. In fact, I would say it’s unprecedented competition from a number of digital partners.“As I say, we put our focus on the broadcast package first. … We are not required to go coterminous with the broadcasts. We can do any length of deal that we get to an agreement on with that digital partner. As I mentioned earlier, we will be doing this in cooperation with our Fox partners.”.
