Should the Cowboys trust Chaz Green to be future starting RT?
While fans and analysts alike rush Chaz Green Jersey to figure out ways to fill the gaping holes at cornerback, safety and defensive end for the Dallas Cowboys, there is another issue lurking in the shadows.
While the Cowboys' offensive line is viewed as the most dominant unit in the NFL, they are only as strong as their weakest link.
At the moment, that link isn't all that weak. While Doug Free may be the worst player on Dallas' offensive line, he is still among the better right tackles in the NFL. However, at 33 years old with a myriad of injuries taking their toll, Free is likely on the precipice of a major decline in his playing abilities.
Furthermore, Free is going into the last year of his contract and unless he kick slides himself into the fountain of youth, that will likely end his tenure in Dallas.
Former third-round pick Chaz Green is typically viewed as Free's eventual replacement, but should he be?
Why he should
The biggest reason Green should be tabbed as Dallas' future starter at right tackle is because he's proven to be a capable player on the field:

Who is this and what have they done with Chaz Green? Another solid rep. Showing a ton of growth early in this game.

Green showed a ton of improvement in getting out of his stance, creating space and maintaining a half-man relationship with a defender (the three laws of pass protection).
On this play, you see Green (the left tackle) explode into the drive-catch phase of pass protection. The Cowboys appear to be utilizing a BOB (big-on-big) call for the left side of the protection. Green shows solid discipline and mental Terrance Williams Jersey processing to not get sucked into blocking the blitzing linebacker. Instead, he carries out the block on the defensive end.
One of the reasons why Dallas selected Green in the third round of the 2015 draft was because of his movement abilities. Despite lacking in other areas, Green has silky smooth feet that allows him to recover and block pass-rushers where most linemen would fail. This play is a great example:

Green gets out of his stance and to his landmark with relative ease and quickness while trying to obtain the half-man relationship. Because of a poor punch, the defensive end is able to briefly get to Green's edge with a path to the quarterback; however, Green's quick feet allow him to recover and get in position to maintain the block.
The best part of Green's skill set is that it continues to show development. While some players stagnate once they get into the NFL, Green has developed nicely with his fundamentals that were lacking when he entered the league.

He is by no means a finishedhttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-ronnie-lott-jersey-c-2_32.html product, but he has shown he has the tools necessary to become a solid right tackle in the NFL with a little more consistency in his pass sets and a better punch.
Why he shouldn't
Even though there is a ton of optimism surrounding Green's development, it doesn't matter at all if he can't stay on the field.
Green's college career was marred by injury as he dealt with ankle injuries and a torn labrum, and it hasn't gotten any better in the NFL. He missed his entire rookie campaign because of a hip injury and parts of 2016 because of a foot sprain before being put on injured reserve because of a back issue.
In the NFL, the best ability is availability, and Green has proven that he can't stay healthy.
Best course of action
Until Green shows that he can stay healthy, it would be foolish to place any trust in him being the starting right tackle.
It is one thing for the Cowboys to continue to trust a player like Sean Lee, who, before this last season, failed to stay healthy for an entire season, when he has proven to be a Pro Bowl caliber player when active. Even though Green has looked good in his appearances with the starting line, his performances are nowhere near Pro Bowl caliber.
Thus, it would be smart of Dallas to acquire their right tackle of the future, immediately.
If they decided to go the free agency route, a player like Luke Joeckel would be a great option. If they wanted to go the draft route, they could grab a guy like Ryan Ramczyk or Taylor Moton in this first couple rounds or a player http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-reggie-nelson-jersey-c-2_4.html like Antonio Garcia with a mid-round pick.
Still, the answer to the original question is clear: Chaz Green isn't the future starting right tackle the Cowboys are looking for, and it's time for Dallas to find a player who is.

Ronnie Lott-led group submits Oakland stadium plan to NFL
A group leading the Buffalo-Bills Kids Jersey charge to keep the Raiders local has formally submitted a plan to the NFL for the first time.
"A person familiar with the deal said Tuesday that the plan was submitted by the Fortress Investment Group within the past 10 days," the Associated Press reports."The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the submission was not made public."
The NFL is expected to vote on the move in late March..

The NFL is expected to vote on the move in late March..
TONY GONZALES
Sports Business Daily first reported the news.
Both the Oakland City Council Andre Smith Authentic Jersey and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors voted in mid-December to support a plan to enter into an exclusive negotiating agreement with former NFL legend Ronnie Lott's investment team to build a new stadium for the Raiders. The plan submitted by Fortress Investment Group represents that group's formal outline for how it hopes to keep the team in the Bay Area.
The Oakland council voted 7-0, with one abstention, and the county board voted 3-1, to accept the plan, which will create a $1.3 billion coliseum complex. The 130-acre, 55,000-seat stadium development would sit on land that is jointly owned by the county and the city.
The group said last month thathttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-andre-smith-jersey-c-2_10.html Fortress, its financial backer, had been acquired by Japanese billionaire Masayoshi Son's tech conglomerate SoftBank for $3.3 billion.
Team owner Mark Davis formally filed for relocation in January. Nevada has approved $750 million in public money to build a $1.9 billion stadium for the Raiders in Las Vegas. But that bid suffered two major setbacks this week, when casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, pulled out of his $650 million commitment, and investor Goldman Sachs walked away.
The league is expected to vote on the move this month. Of 32 NFL team owners, 24 would have to approve the deal in order for the move to Las Vegas to happen.
Jason Cole, a closely followedhttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-sebastian-janikowski-jersey-c-2_67.html writer for Bleacher Report, tweeted last week that that team was claiming it had found financing, saying " # NFL source said # Raiders exec Marc Badain told the league the team has two banks ready to loan money for the Las Vegas project."
The Raiders did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

Star Evaluation: Thornton Provided Solid Depth at Defensive Tackle
The roster turnover is aboutSammie Coates Womens Jersey to begin. Free agency opens in less than one month and the 2017 NFL Draft isn't far behind it. Over the next two months, the Cowboys will lose and replace a sizable portion of their roster.
For every new face, however, there are dozens of familiar ones who will return to begin a new campaign. From established veterans to second-year players, the vast majority of the Cowboys' 2017 team is already on the roster. In the coming weeks, the staff of DallasCowboys.com will preview those players, analyzing where they've been and where they're going.
Today we'll continue the series with defensive tackle Cedric Thornton.
What's Been Good: Although Thornton was Darrius Heywardbey Jersey primarily a defensive end in four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cowboys picked him up in free agency a year ago with the idea of moving him to defensive tackle. At 6-foot-4 and nearly 300 pounds, he has the size to work inside in coordinator Rod Marinelli's defensive line rotation, and indeed provided valuable depth at a position of need. While never considered a sack master, Thornton did manage to total 1.5 sacks, which was a career high, while also posting only his second career forced fumble and fourth fumble recovery. And all this came despite him missing the final three games of the regular season due to an ankle injury.
What's Been Bad: There was some thought heading into training camp that Thornton could challenge for a starting spot, but that never materialized, even when Tyrone Crawford got pushed outside to help cover for a lack of depth at defensive end. In the end, rookie Maliek Collins eventually surpassed Thornton on the depth chart, in part because Thornton was only credited with 22 tackles. He averaged 43 takedowns per season http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-san-diego-chargers-c-1_1345.html during his tenure with the Eagles.
2016 Highlight: The Cowboys were on a three-game winning streak, but questions still remained about how good the team actually was. With Andy Dalton and the Bengals coming to town for a Week 5 matchup, Dallas was expecting to see a tougher test, and although Cincinnati wasn't quite what we thought, the Cowboys still took care of business, dominating the visitors, 28-14. The defensive line did its part, sacking Dalton four times, which included a second quarter sack by Thornton, who went on to also post a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit. The performance was a perfect example of how the big men up front could impact a game as the Bengals were limited to 269 passing yards.
What's Next: The Cowboys will enter the 2017 campaign with Collins almost assuredly penciled in as one of the defensive tackle starters and David Irving, or if he is re-signed Terrell McClain, would seemingly be higher on the depthhttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-moritz-boehringer-jersey-c-2_17.html chart also. Thornton can again be a valuable rotational guy – you can seemingly never have enough – but now in the second-year of his four-year contract, he's actually among the top-25 highest paid defensive tackles in the league. The Cowboys are probably hoping for a little more bang for their buck.

Should Raiders re-sign Perry Riley Jr.?
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The OaklandKevin Greene Youth Jersey Raiders are scheduled to have 13 unrestricted free agents this offseason after the team broke through with a 12-4 season and its first playoff appearance since 2002.
On offense: offensive lineman Menelik Watson, tight end Mychal Rivera, receiver Andre Holmes, quarterback Matt McGloin and running back Latavius Murray.
On defense: defensive back DJ Hayden, defensive tackle Stacy McGee, linebackers Malcolm Smith, Perry Riley Jr. and Daren Bates and safeties Nate Allen and Brynden Trawick.
And on special teams: long snapper Jon Condo.
Linebacker Perry Riley Jr. gave the Raiders veteran leadership after signing in midseason. Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images
Middle linebacker Perry Riley Jr.
Age: 28
2016 base salary: $1 million
Why he should stay: Signed off the street Greg Lloyd Womens Jersey on Oct. 4 after four games, Riley, who spent his first six seasons in Washington, immediately helped settle the middle of the Raiders defense after Ben Heeney was lost for the season with injury and rookie Cory James was unable to solidify things. Riley's 62 tackles in 11 games – he missed the Carolina Panthers game with a hamstring injury – ranked sixth on the team and he forced a fumble on his first series as a Raider. He forced another fumble in the Raiders' playoff-clinching victory on Dec. 18 at San Diego and by the time the season ended, he was a 12-game starter in Oakland, including the playoffs, and had the green dot on his helmet as the team's defensive signal-caller.
Why he should go: Yes, Riley settled things down for the Raiders defense, but it was still ranked No. 26 unit in the NFL. So is that a testament to Riley's ability or a shot at how poor the defense played? That depends upon how you look at things. Riley had two passes defensed, but he did not have a sack or an interception while starting 11 regular-season games and the playoff loss at the Houston Texans. Riley fits the mold of a journeyman and he will be 29 with a lot of mileage on him come next season.
The quote: “I love this place. Like I said, thehttp://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-miami-dolphins-c-1_228.html team, the fans, opened their arms for me and welcomed me with open arms. I loved it here, so if everything works out, perfect scenario, definitely I'd come back.” – Riley, on the prospect of returning to Oakland in 2017.
The thought: Riley, childhood friends with outside linebacker Bruce Irvin, was the best the Raiders had last season at middle linebacker. So unless they draft an upgrade who is ready to contribute immediately, sign one in free agency or acquire one in a trade, it makes sense to bring Riley back for another run.

Darren Woodson: The Cowboys 'need' to re-sign DeMarcus Ware
The prevailing thought headingChuck Howley Womens Jersey into free agency for the Dallas Cowboys can be summed up in two words: Pass rush.
They lack one, they need one and they won't ever be considered serious contenders for a Super Bowl without one. Few understand this better than legendary strong safety Darren Woodson, who won three Super Bowls as a member of the club from 1992-2003.
In that time, Woodson played alongside the likes of Jim Jeffcoat, Tony Tolbert, Ken Norton and illustrious Hall of Fame defensive end Charles Haley.
The Cowboys' season may be over, but they're not mailing it in. Don't miss any breaking offseason news, take a second to sign up for our FREE Cowboys messenger!
So when Woodson, a Ring of Honor andGavin Escobar Jersey Texas Football Hall of Fame inductee, says the team has an issue on defense -- they have an issue on defense.
"It all starts up front," said the five-time pro bowler, via The Dallas Morning News. "When we had our biggest success on the Cowboys, our front seven dominated. That's what they've got to get back to.
And Woodson has an idea that mirrors what some others are also calling for this offseason.
He wants to see the Cowboys bring back the team's all-time sack leader, DeMarcus Ware.
"Love it," says Woodson. "You don't have to play him on every down either. They can use him as a situational pass rusher. They need someone, when it's third-and-6 that's going to be a freak. We had Charles Haley as our freak. They need a freak on third down.
"If you're looking for a situational guy, look what Dwight Freeney did with the Atlanta Falcons. Not only was he a situational guy, he was helping Vic Beasley on the other side with the mental approach. That's where DeMarcus Ware could help you. Not http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-ronnie-lott-jersey-c-2_32.html only can he be an elite pass rusher, there's his experience.
"We had Greg Ellis trying to help the young guys. I think DeMarcus Ware could do the same. He did the same with Von Miller. He can do it here. I think they have some young guys who can get the job done, but they have to look out at that free agent market and see if they can bring in another guy."
All is not lost, however, as there's at least one pass rusher on the roster Woodson sees are teetering on the verge of breaking out.
"DeMarcus Lawrence," Woodson noted. "He needs more reps, and he has to be available. He has to mentally checked in, too."
Lawrence will be returning from his second back surgery in a year as he enters the final year on his rookie deal, and now's the time for him to prove Woodson and the Cowboys right. His ability to impact the game will go a long way to seeing the team turn thehttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-latavius-murray-jersey-c-2_8.html corner in the postseason, and if Ware returns to contribute -- it'll certainly help their case.
Besides, who wouldn't love seeing a "DeMarcus" terrorizing opposing QBs from both sides of the defensive line at the same time?
Sure you would.

Analyzing the San Francisco 49ers' wide receivers and tight ends
This past football season Aaron Burbridge Jersey was one of the worst for 49ers' wide receivers in quite some time. Previous general manager, Trent Baalke, decided to overlook their glaring need at the position last offseason. He didn't draft a wide receiver until the sixth round with Aaron Burbridge. He also didn't sign a big name at the position until right before the season started when they added their unexpected receiving leader, Jeremy Kerley. On the other hand, tight ends Vance McDonald and Garrett Celek combined for an impressive 741 yards and seven touchdowns. The two aren't by any means at the top of the league at their position, but they are certainly one of the strengths of the team. I expect them to improve in an enhanced Kyle Shanahan offense.
Washington Redskins
Garcon is yet to total more than 59 receiving yards in a game this season. Credit: Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports
The 49ers could be without two of their top three wide receivers from the 2016 season. They released Torrey Smith and have not yet re-signed Quinton Patton or Rod Streater opening up addition salary cap space for incoming players. However, they will keep the highly under-appreciated receiver Jeremy Kerley who led the 49ers in receiving yards and receptions. Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin, who marked two of Kyle Shanahan's first big acquisitions, will join Kerley and the other wide receivers. Pierre Adolphus Washington Jersey Garcon looks to help improve the 49ers' league worst passing offense that averaged just 181.9 yards per game. Garcon has accumulated 3,916 yards over the past four seasons and already has two seasons of experience with coach Kyle Shanahan. Goodwin is coming off of his best season with the Buffalo Bills where he had 431 yards and three touchdowns. He is still a young player with room to grow and should help fill the deep threat hole left by Torrey Smith. The rest of the wide receiver depth chart is generally young and unproven.
The tight end situation should look very similar to last season but with a bit more experience. Breakout performer Vance McDonald earned a nice bump in salary as he led the 49ers in receiving touchdowns with four, all of which seemed so important on a team that really struggled to score through the air. He is now the seventh highest paid player on the roster. Garrett Celek will also remain on the team who had the third mosthttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-adam-gotsis-jersey-c-1_39.html receptions and fourth most yards among receivers. Blake Bell will look to grow in his second year and backup Logan Paulsen was added in free agency as insurance.
The receiving core seems improved from last year, which isn't saying much. However, I expect the 49ers to add a playmaking receiver as early as the second round in the upcoming draft. There is no receiver truly worth selecting at second overall so unless they wanted to trade down, which general manger John Lynch has said he is open to, the 49ers will likely wait until the early second round to add another weapon for Brian Hoyer. Top wide receivers John Ross (Washington) or Mike Williams (Clemson) could very possibly fall to the early second round where San Francisco could snag them for a great pickup. If not Curtis Samuel (Ohio State) or Chris Godwin (Penn State) could be sneaky picks if chosen instead. The 49ers do not have a need for a tight end in the draft since signing Paulsen so there is little reason to believe that they might add one.

Does Solomon Thomas fit with 49ers at No. 2 in NFL draft?
Solomon Thomas is a hot name getting pegged to the 49ers and their second-overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
The Stanford defensiveArik Armstead Jersey lineman might be the second best prospect available with Myles Garrett expected to go first to Cleveland. But if San Francisco taps Thomas, it wouldn't be a seamless fit.
That's because the 49ers used first-round selections in the previous two drafts on defensive linemen Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner, who were picked to play in the team's 3-4 front. San Francisco in 2017 is transitioning to a Seahawks-like 4-3 that uses 3-4 personnel, which Armstead and Buckner should excel in.
Thomas played in a 3-4 at Stanford, tasked with disrupting opposing offenses from the interior against guards, much like Armstead and Buckner during their college careers at Oregon. Thomas is redundant, which might not necessarily be a bad thing. Depth is good.
The question becomes, if the 49ers think Thomas is the best pick at No. 2, how does he fit with those other two? And if the fit is questionable, is he skilled enough to transcend it and allow San Francisco to worry about the fit later?
Thomas is a tweener who might not have the length and explosion to consistently pressure the quarterback along the edge. He's 6-foot-3 and 273 pounds with 33-inch arms, which isn't prototypical of a pass rusher going against offensive tackle – particularly a pass rusher drafted second overall. San Francisco's right tackle Trent Brown, for example, has 36-inch arms and would be able to get his hands on Thomas before Thomas could reach Brown.
But Thomas is also some 20 pounds lighterCharles Clay Womens Jersey than most interior defensive tackles in a 4-3, which would indicate he'd have to gain to weight to play against the run in base – making it less likely he could rush from the edge. J.J. Watt, for instance, can play all four spots along a defensive line. But he entered the league at 290 pounds in 2011.
Thomas realistically plays the same position as Armstead, which would be as a three- or five-technique along the interior, allowing longer, more natural pass rushers like Aaron Lynch and Ahmad Brooks to play the ‘Leo' and ‘Sam' positions on the edges. Buckner figures to be an every-down player if the team added Thomas or not.
The 4-3 over defensive front in base would look similar to the 3-4 front the team has run the better part of the last decade. For now, it would likely look like this:
Base:
Leo: Aaron Lynch (Tank Carradine)
DT: Arik Armstead (Solomon Thomas?)
DT: Earl Mitchell (Quinton Dial)
DE: DeForest Buckner
Sam: Ahmad Brooks (Eli Harold)
Sub:
DE: Lynch (Carradine)
DT: Armstead (Thomas?)
DT: Buckner (Dial)
DE: Brooks (Harold)
Thomas projects to be a three-down player, which http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-brandon-marshall-jersey-c-1_27.html means the 49ers would have to figure out if Armstead is worth having in a part-time, pass-rushing role, or if he has more value on the trade market to a team that runs his natural 3-4.
New general manager John Lynch ultimately has to build the best roster for the long haul. Drafting for need, and not taking the best player available, can often lead to mistakes. A need is defined as a snapshot in time and could change with an injury during a practice or a free agent addition. Also, a need could always be addressed later in the draft.
Having too many disruptive players along the defensive line is never a bad thing. But the 49ers need help up and down the roster. They have holes at quarterback, free safety, receiver, linebacker, and edge pass rusher, which would be more prudent after the team took Armstead and Buckner the last two years.
San Francisco's roster isn't ripe for ahttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-drew-brees-jersey-c-1_14.html luxury pick, like Thomas, to add depth to a position that already has talent. Unless, perhaps, if Armstead is traded.
Like the Rams in recent seasons, there's long-term risk in investing valuable first-round selections in the same position group. The 49ers shouldn't neglect other areas on the roster – unless they can ensure Thomas would be an every-down player.

Former Bills WR Andre Reed says Sammy Watkins can be special if healthy
As the Buffalo Bills' most distinguished 18 Peyton Manning Authentic Jersey receiver and one of the best pass catchers in NFL history, Andre Reed said his former team has something special in Fort Myers native Sammy Watkins.
“There's no doubt about it – if Sammy is 100 percent, he's one of the top five receivers in the league,” Reed said.
The problem, Reed said before speaking at the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County's Youth of the Year Celebration on Tuesday in Naples, is that Watkins hasn't been 100 percent very often. Watkins, a 2011 graduate of South Fort Myers High School, has missed 11 games the past two seasons with various injuries.
If Watkins can finally play healthy – even as a rookie in 2014, his only full pro season, Watkins battled through rib injuries – Reed thinks the current Bills receiver can have success similar to what the former had.
“He has all the physical attributes,” Reed said. “Sammy is a great athlete, a great player. It's just unfortunate he's really only had one full season. Hopefully things turn around for him.”
NFL: Vikings' Alexander leads locals into training camp
Reed, who played 15 seasons in Buffalo, wasDj Fluker Authentic Jersey in Naples to support a cause bigger than Bills football. Wearing his gold Pro Football Hall of Fame jacket from the Class of 2014, Reed wanted to support an organization that he credits for making him successful in life.
Growing up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Reed spent nearly every day at the Boys & Girls Club. Since retiring from the NFL in 2000, Reed has spoken at many Boys & Girls Clubs around the country to raise funds and support for the cause.
The Collier County chapter's fifth annual Youth of the Year Celebration was at Artis–Naples. On Monday, Reed spoke to a group of local Boys & Girls Club kids at the Naples facility.
Reed also is a member of the Boys & Girls Club of America Alumni Hall of Fame. The Andre Reed Foundation was established in 2010 to support underprivileged children, and one of the beneficiaries is the Boys & Girls Club.
Following its 2013 charity golf tournament, Reed's foundation donated $25,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Allentown.
“Everybody here, they have their own story,” Reed said before Tuesday's event. “My story may be different, but we all have the same foundation. You need the same values, the same people in your corner patting you on the back or smackinghttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-bob-lilly-jersey-c-2_60.html you on the back when you're not doing good. The Boys & Girls Club reinforces that.”
NFL: Carolina's Boston, Atlanta's De'Vondre Campbell overcoming the Super Bowl blues
As Reed wishes the best for Watkins, he also hopes the Bills can return to the glory days of his time in Buffalo.
Drafted in 1985, Reed was the leading receiver as the Bills went to four straight Super Bowls from 1991-95. Reed is 53 years old, yet Buffalo hasn't made the playoffs since his final year there. His last game was the Musical City Miracle, when the Titans beat the Bills following a lateral pass on a kickoff with three seconds left.
Buffalo famously lost all four Super Bowls in the 1990s. Following the 1990 season, the Bills lost Super Bowl XXV, 20-19 to the New York Giants, when Scott Norwood's 47-yard field goal went wide right as time expired.
In this year's Super Bowl, the Atlanta Falcons suffered a comparably crushing defeat. The Falcons led by 25 points in the third quarter before the New England Patriots charged back to win in overtime.
“You never get over it,” Reed said of losing in the Super Bowl. “It's been years and years and years after our four Super Bowls, and I still wanthttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-daryl-johnston-jersey-c-2_52.html to win one. Your whole focus is to get to the Super Bowl and win a championship. That's what you play the game for.”

Broncos tender Todd Davis, Matt Paradis and several others
The Broncos issued a slew of tendersKenny Stabler Authentic Jersey to their restricted and exclusive rights free agents on Tuesday.
The team confirmed that they tendered kicker Brandon McManus in a release announcing moves involving 10 players overall. McManus received a second-round tender as a restricted free agent and, per multiple reports, so did linebacker Todd Davis.
Davis started 15 games for Denver last season and http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-cornellius-carradine-jersey-c-1_13.html ended the year with 97 tackles, a half-sack and a forced fumble. He stands to make $2.746 million under the tender and any team that wants to sign him would have to give the Broncos a second-round pick for the right to do so.
Starting center Matt Paradis headlines the list of eight ERFAs tendered by the Broncos on Tuesday. Paradis is recovering from surgeries to both hips, but is expected to be back to health for next season. Linebacker Zaire Anderson, linebackerhttp://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-corey-graham-jersey-c-1_13.html Shaq Barrett, center James Ferentz, running back Kapri Bibbs, long snapper Casey Kreiter, wide receiver Bennie Fowler and wide receiver Jordan Taylor were the others.

Saints closing in on deal with linebacker Manti Te'o: source
The New Orleans Saints are Cj Anderson Womens Jersey apparently not content with keeping the status quo at the linebacker position.
The Saints are close to signing free-agent linebacker Manti Te'o, a source familiar with the discussions confirmed Monday afternoon.
ESPN's Dan Graziano first reported the news, while adding a deal could be accomplished Tuesday.
The Saints hosted Te'o on a visit early in free agency, but the former Los Angeles Chargers linebacker left without signing a deal.
Te'o, 26, entered the league in 2013 out of Notre Dame http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-jairus-byrd-jersey-c-1_18.html as a second-round pick (38th overall) of the Chargers.
The 6-1, 241-pound Te'o, a native of Hawaii, has appeared in 38 career games (34 starts) over four seasons and totaled 233 tackles (160 solo), 1 1/2 sacks, two interceptions, nine passes defensed and a forced fumble in that span.
The Saints' current linebacker corps consists of A.J. Klein Craig Robertson, Stephone Anthony, Dannell Ellerbe, Nate Stupar, Hau'oli Kikaha, Travis Feeney, Roycehttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-21-vontae-davis-jersey-c-1_11.html LaFrance and Adam Bighill.
Klein, who spent four seasons with the Carolina Panthers, joined the Saints on a three-year deal on the first day of free agency.

How the Tennessee Titans Can Still Find Quality Wide Receiver Help
Its no secret that many fans were upset when the cream of the crop wide receivers came and went to other teams around the league. Understandably so. TheDerek Watt Womens Jersey Tennessee Titans do have a need, plenty of cap space, and the looks of being ready to take that next step and be a real contender.
Don't panic yet though. There are still options out there through free agency, the draft, and don't forget about trade options that could become available. Right now, we have to trust that Jon Robinson knows best — he has earned that. It's all about balancing budget and production. What I mean by that is: would you rather have a receiver make $12-$14 million a year and catch 90 balls for 1500 yards, or a receiver who makes $3-$5 million a year who catches 60 balls for 900 some odd yards? Let's take a look at some of the options left available for the Titans at this point.
Mike Williams is considered by most scoutsByron Jones Youth Jersey to be the best receiver in this year's draft class. He has size, speed, he runs solid routes, and does a nice job adjusting to the football. He ate up Alabama and Ohio State's defenses in the college football playoffs. With pick number five overall in this year's draft, the Titans will have a shot to get him and it's also possible he falls to them at 18th overall as well.
Although he isn't as big as Mike Williams, some scouts have Corey Davis ranked ahead of him. He has a nice size, speed combo going for him. Davis is an advanced route runner and he's dangerous after the catch as well. He would probably be better suited to pick up at 18th overall instead of fifth.
John Ross is a true burner. He broke Chris Johnson's 40 yard dash record at the NFL combine, so he can certainly take the lid off a defense. I've seen comparisons to Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs and Brandin Cooks of the New England Patriots. He can also make some big plays on special teams, which again the Titans love. His only downfall is his size. At 5'11” and 190lbs, he's better suited to play in the slot than as a number one receiver. Which makes me question his health. Slot receivers typically work the middle of the field where those big linebackers play. With his small frame, I question if he could stay healthy for a full sixteen game season.
Noah Brown is what a person would describe as an athletic freak and he could fall to the Titans in round 3. He can make those spectacular catches and he knows how to use his big bodied frame as well. I would like to see more explosion from him off the line of scrimmage though.
Chad Hansen could be another target the Titans go after in round 3. He has good size and with some time he could develop into a true number one in http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-emmitt-smith-jersey-c-2_47.html the league. I could see him as a rotational player or a decent number two option. He runs good routes, but I would like to see him run some different routes.
Chris Godwin has really raised his stock over the last few months. At 6'1″, he has some size to him, but he also has good speed. Its likely he goes in round 2, but with so much depth at so many other positions it's possible he slips into round 3.
Like Chris Godwin, Malachi Dupre is a second round talent who could slip into round three. As a Titans fan watching scouting videos on Dupre I couldn't help but notice so many similarities to Justin Hunter. A more well rounded, explosive Justin Hunter. He has that tall slim build to him, but he is explosive off the line of scrimmage, gets involved in the run blocking game, and he can really stretch the defense.
So, my fellow Titan fans, this is no time to panic. There are still some options out there to bring in and we still have Delanie Walker, Rishard http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-malcolm-smith-jersey-c-2_50.html Matthews, and Tajae Sharpe (whom I expect to improve headeing into year two of his career) catching passes for us. We also have a backfield of DeMarco Murray, Derrick Henry, and Marcus Mariota in a run first football scheme.

Damion Square ready to play anywhere in Chargers' new defensive front
Damion Square considers the Los Angeles Chargers' shift from a 3-4 defensive scheme to a 4-3 look as an extra chance to show his versatility.
Former Jacksonville Jaguars head coachDaniel Kilgore Womens Jersey and Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley has taken over the Chargers' defense under new Los Angeles head coach Anthony Lynn.
The Chargers return starting defensive end Joey Bosa, the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year for 2016; defensive tackle Corey Liuget and nose tackle Brandon Mebane, as well as Square, who started the final seven games of the 2016 campaign after Mebane suffered a season-ending torn biceps.
"Our front four is very strong," Square told the Chargers' official web site. "It's tremendous with Mebane, Joey and Corey. The talent we have is second to none. So for me, I'm a guy who can play anywhere across the front. I can play the three-technique. I can play the nose. Put me at the five if needed or the six if needed. I have versatility where I can play along the front and at a high level. That is the role that I fill, and I will fill it to the best of my ability. ...
"Football is football. There are a lot of different ways to play. But at the end of the day, it is about effort, executing, finding the ball and getting the guy on the ground."
After his first regular playing time in the NFL, Square chose to return to the Chargers after becoming a free agent on March 9. Los Angeles announced Corey White Womens Jersey on March 10 that Square would be staying with the team.
"There were certain things I wanted in free agency, and the Chargers gave it to me," Square said. "I wanted to stay with the group of guys I grew with. We have great chemistry."

Alabama Roots: Who got how much in NFL free agency
Since NFL free agency opened on March 9, nearly 200 players have gotten new contracts, including 16 from Alabama high schools and colleges, in the so-called "first wave" of signings. Here's a look at the deals signed by the state's free agents.
Square re-signed with the Chargers for a two-year, $4,000,000 contract that included a $1,225,000 signing bonus and a $775,000 base salary for the 2017 season.
Square was a starter for Alabama's BCS national-championship teams of 2011 and 2012, and he made the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted rookie.
After Square played in 10 games in 2013, the Eagles released him at the end of training camp in 2014. The Kansas City Chiefs picked up the defensive lineman, but Square never got in a game with Kansas City before being released on Oct. 31, 2014. San Diego picked him up, but he finished that season without appearing in a game.
Square went from Dec. 29, 2013, when he played the last of his 147 defensive snaps for the Eagles, until Nov. 9, 2015, without appearing in an NFL http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-khairi-fortt-jersey-c-1_26.html regular-season game. He ended up playing 155 snaps in six games for the Chargers in 2015.

In 2016, Square played 362 defensive snaps in 11 games for San Diego. He recorded the first sacks of his career, sharing a sack of Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler on Nov. 27, then sacking Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III two times on Dec. 24.

Is Pitt Quarterback Nathan Peterman The Next Dak Prescott?
There's been plenty of Chuck Howley Youth Jersey talk about the two big-name ACC quarterbacks expected to get selected in April's NFL Draft. North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson will probably both get their names called in the first round. That's no surprise.
Behind those two is a second tier of names like Notre Dame's Deshone Kizer and Miami's Brad Kaaya.
Each of those passers has their own set of positives and negatives, but there's an underrated ACC signal caller that's been gaining hype as of late.
It's Pittsburgh quarterback Nathan Peterman.
Peterman closed out his campaign atMarquette King Womens Jersey Pitt with 5,236 passing yards 47 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Almost all of those stats came in 2015 and 2016, Peterman's two years as the Panthers' starter.
Bleacher Report NFL Draft Lead Writer Matt Miller casted some interesting insight into how the NFL is viewing Peterman.
"Nathan Peterman, or as one scout told me, this week, 'this draft's best chance at Dak Prescott,'" Miller said. "What the scout meant by 'Dak-like,' though, isn't that he'll lead a team to a playoff run as a rookie. More likely he means a franchise can grab a starter outside the first two rounds. And Peterman can be that if he slips to the third round."
This is really interesting stuff.
I followed Peterman fairly closely while covering http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-antoine-bethea-jersey-c-1_6.html the ACC this season and was never wowed by watching him. He felt more of a consistent game manager type, who made very little mistakes and connected on the big play every once in a while. He checks in at 6-foot-2, but I always thought he was undersized, especially interviewing him at the ACC media event leading up to last year's season when he wasn't wearing pads and a helmet.
Maybe that's precisely what the scout meant, though? Peterman could come in, have decent production without blowing anyone away and have a foundation to build on? That's what Prescott did to an extent after all -- he just had a ton of help around him.
Take a look at this analysis of Peterman by the folks at NFL Draft Breakdown. When they slowed it down and focused on Peterman's release andhttp://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-doug-flutie-jersey-c-1_18.html mobility, they had me convinced there was a bigger upside than I was seeing when the season was playing out. There was even an Aaaron Rodgers comparison which feels way too premature.
Is Peterman going to be a sleeper and become the next Prescott? You decide.

What would Andrew Tiller offer the Kansas City Chiefs?
After a few years in the NFL bouncingCraig Mager Womens Jersey from team to team, Andrew Tiller finally found a home in San Francisco for the last two years with the 49ers. Tiller started 14 games along the offensive line as a guard, and now at 28-years-old, he brings some versatility and experience to a new team looking to bolster its offensive front.
The Kansas City Chiefs hosted Tiller for a free agent visit on Monday, the third such visit after previously hosting linebacker Gerald Hodges and defensive tackle Bennie Logan. Hodges is still a free agent, but John Dorsey struck a one-year deal with Logan to help replace the departed Dontari Poe on the defensive line. With Tiller, it's a bit harder to tell what K.C.'s general manager is thinking.
To get a better sense of what Tiller would bring to the table, we asked Peter Panacy, site expert from Niners Noise, a few questions and Benson Mayowa Authentic Jersey he graciously agreed to answer them.
Andrew Tiller finally seemed to find a home in San Francisco after bouncing around the league. What allowed him to find a home with the Niners?
Andrew Tiller managed to be in the right situation at the right time. The 49ers were dealing with two notable offensive line departures in 2015 — Mike Iupati and Anthony Davis. Towards the end of the season, when it became apparent right guard Jordan Devey wasn't going to work out, fans got to see a little of what he was capable of doing. He looked like a solid backup and even a potential starting guard in a power scheme.
Tiller started several games in the last two seasons for the Niners. Was he a solid starter or was it detrimental to the line?
Late in 2016, I was one of a number of people wondering why Tiller wasn't getting the start over veteran left guard Zane Beadles. Part of it probably was the zone-scheme fit, which former head coach Chip Kelly implemented a year ago. Pro Football Focus certainly graded Tiller higher than Beadles. Of course some of this could be the stigma ofhttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-dan-bailey-jersey-c-2_16.html being an undrafted free agent, but it's hard to see that being a reality for a struggling team.
Nevertheless, I think most Niner fans were impressed by Tiller's play, even if it was limited.
Why were the Niners ready to move on?
It's more of a fit thing at this point than anything else. Tiller is probably best suited for a power scheme, not the zone-blocking approach. And head coach Kyle Shanahan will be implementing an outside-zone approach this offseason. I'm not sure Tiller fits into that. And, by looking at the guys' strengths ahead of Tiller on the depth chart, perhaps both Shanahan and general manager John Lynch just didn't see the fit.
I don't think letting Tiller walk was a matter of trimming the fat, which has happened elsewhere among the roster. I just think it was never going to be the right fit, scheme-wise.
What does Tiller have to offer a team like the Chiefs?
Tiller is, at best, a stopgap starter in a team needing an inside presence, preferably at the right guard position. He's OK at left guard, but he's not quite as adept at run blocking on the left side of the line, which could hinder teams running to that side. I'm not sure if Tiller winds up being an everyday starter for the next two or http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-mychal-rivera-jersey-c-2_51.html three years, but he's certainly capable of holding his own.
Teams looking for a solid, power-scheme guard could make some use of Tiller, especially in an immediate swing-guard role.

Sando: Chargers should trade for Bills OT Cyrus Kouandjio
In this ESPN Insider piece, NFL Insider Blaine Gabbert Youth Jersey Mike Sando proposes eight potential trades as NFL teams head to the combine in Indianapolis this week.
One of them brings a potential starting left tackle to the Los Angeles Chargers, as Sando proposes they acquire OT Cyrus Kouandjio and a 2017 seventh-rounder from the Buffalo Bills for a 2017 fourth-rounder.
The Chargers of course need help up front, and Kouandjio was decent in five starts at left tackle last season for Buffalo with Cordy Glenn out. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn and offensive line coach Pat Meyer also are familiar with Kouandjio from their time in Buffalo.
Kouandjio did have hip surgery this offseason inGreg Salas Womens Jersey January after falling at his home, putting in question his availability for offseason work.
Last year's starting left tackle for the Chargers, King Dunlap, turns 32 years old in September, carries a $5.75 million base salary in 2017 and has had trouble staying on the field the last two seasons. Dunlap also was arrested in Nashville 10 days ago on suspicion for violating a protection order.
My take: It's a low-risk move to add talent up front, particularly with very few offensive line prospects in this year's draft projected to come into the NFL right away and play left tackle. At 23 years old, Kouandjio also is a young, developing prospect who's still growing as a player.
Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times writes that the Chargers have to go beyond adding young players from this year's draft to http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-dennis-smith-jersey-c-1_23.html solve issues such as injury prevention, holding onto fourth-quarter leads and just plain bad luck.
My take: He's right. Lynn has to affect a change of culture to fix some of the things that have been plaguing this franchise for the last two years. But adding more talent will assist in that effort.
Matt Hoffman of NBC San Diego writes that legendary Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was an honorary starter for the Daytona 500 over the weekend.
My take: That's a cool honor bestowed on LT, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer.
Mark Whicker of the Orange County Register talks with Chargers general manager Tom Telesco, who had this to say about the Chargers moving forward: “It's tough to know where we are. I don't know. We have a good core. But we http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-james-laurinaitis-jersey-c-1_20.html turned it over way too much. We did get more turnovers defensively, but we have to rush the passer better. Go through all the tough losses. There's a different reason for each one.”
My take: With a league-high 35 turnovers last season, ball security will be a point of emphasis this offseason.

LSU's Jamal Adams 'honored' to meet Brian Dawkins
INDIANAPOLIS - The highlight20 Darius Butler Womens Jersey of his NFL Scouting Combine week was meeting Brian Dawkins, LSU safety Jamal Adams said Sunday.
Dawkins has the title "football operations executive" with the Eagles, and he is part of the team's combine scouting group, as he was at the Senior Bowl.
Adams, considered likely to be taken in the http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-derek-watt-jersey-c-1_16.html top 10 or so in the draft's first round, was answering a question about getting help from former teammates, and after mentioning Eagles corner and former Tiger Jalen Mills, he said all such NFL advice is useful.
"For instance, (Saturday) I talked to a legend, Brian Dawkins . . . I've admired everything about him, and that was the highlight of my week. Just http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-charles-haley-jersey-c-2_58.html knowing that he already knew about me, saying how passionate I was and how I play the game the right way. That was huge, to hear that from a legend like him," Adams said.

“Lights out,” added running back Robert Turbin.
“He did everything he possibly could,” offered tight end Erik Swoope. “On a short week, finding out on short notice. He's a tough man and I respect everything he gave to this football team.”

For anyone who watched the Colts 28-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night at Lucas Oil Stadium, the Scott Tolzien you knew at the beginning of the game wasn't the Scott Tolzien you knew at the end of it. He has some mettle. He proved it. You saw it.
“He put us in situations to win the game,” said receiver T.Y. Hilton, who started the drops parade in the second quarter, bumbling a sure-bet touchdown.
Until Monday morning, Tolzien lived in utter obscurity – as most backup quarterbacks do. That's when Tolzien woke up to a pair of missed calls. One was from Pagano. One was from Andrew Luck. He knew something was up.
Luck was in the concussion protocol. In other words: be ready.
Doyel: Colts lost, but they also found something
Four nights later he was starting his first NFL Otis Sistrunk Womens Jersey game three years to the day of his last, on national television, in primetime. No pressure.
It could've started better. Actually, it couldn't have started much worse. On the first play from scrimmage, Tolzien fumbled the football (then, thankfully, he recovered). The Colts soon punted. Three plays in they'd lost 15 total yards.
“Had been a while since I played in a regular season game,” Tolzien said after the loss. “You're gonna have to settle in.
So he did. He wasn't Andrew Luck, and never was going to be, but Tolzien proved every bit a capable backup quarterback on a night the Colts' shoddy defense and dropped passes buried them. The score won't indicate, but he played well enough to win.
He moved the ball. He hit eight different receivers. Fired a touchdown. Stood tall in the pocked, absorbing hit after hit after hit, and bounced back up time and again. Proved something, if not to himself, to his teammates, to his coaches.
“One tough son of a gun,” Pagano called him. “Hung in there, hung in there, and hung in there and made some tough throws, and took some shots along the way.”
In other words, he learned what it's like to be Andrew Luck every single Sunday.
In the third career start for the former Wisconsin Badger, Tolzien led the offense on three drives of 10 plays or more, and four that reached Pittsburgh territory. None produced points. The problem was finishing. The Colts failed to convert a pair of fourth-and-goal situations from the 1 that could've turned the tenor of the game.
Both drives included scrambles fromhttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-cornellius-carradine-jersey-c-1_13.html Tolzien that ended a yard short. He was kicking himself after the game.
“That's frustrating, I'll be honest,” he said. “I did trip (on the second drive). It's a one-on-one situation, and when the goal line is right in front of you, you gotta find a way to put it in. Frustrating as heck.”
Reaction: Roethlisberger, Brown beat Colts again
Even then, the quarterback wasn't the problem. The drops – yeah, we're talking to you, T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett – were.
The most damaging: A 19-play drive that lasted 11:22, eating up most of the third quarter, and ended with a Tolzien-to-Dorsett pass that was dropped in the end zone. A touchdown there would've cut the Steelers' to seven with a full quarter to go, and given Indianapolis life, or hope, or something in the middle.
Instead, the Colts left empty-handed.
It was the story of their night.
Don't question Tolzien's guts, either. The second play of the fourth quarter embodied it. Tolzien escaped from the pocket on a third-and-goal from the Steelers' 2-yard-line. He was stuffed by safety Mike Mitchell. Tolzien's helmet flew off but the football didn't. He popped right back up, ready for another fourth-and-goal.
Tolzien finished 22-for-36 for 205 yards, one touchdown and two late, inconsequential interceptions. He was sacked three times and hurried relentlessly.
What the Colts need, more than anything, is No. 12 back under center. Andrew Luck has 10 days to pass the concussion protocol before the Colts face the Jets on Monday night football on Dec. 5. It'll be the first of a five-game stretch in December that will decide the fate of their season. Currently, at 5-6, they trail the Houston Texans (6-4) by two games in the AFC South.
But for one night, even in a losing effort, thehttp://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-lesean-mccoy-jersey-c-1_30.html backup proved capable. Like Matt Hasselbeck last season, if The Franchise goes down, the Colts know they don't have to panic. Moving forward, if nothing else, having Tolzien available will help them sleep better.
That being said, Luck's return can't come soon enough. The final stretch awaits.
“We all hope Andrew's back,” Tolzien said. “He's the leader of our team, and with good reason.”

Insider: Colts don't do enough in support of Tolzien

49ERS FINALLY IDENTIFY ROLE FOR TANK CARRADINE
It took nearly three seasons, but Deion Sanders Jersey the 49ers believe they found the solution for Cornellius "Tank" Carradine to become a productive NFL player.
Specifically, the defensive lineman was never a good fit for the 49ers' base 3-4 defense. But the 49ers think this season their second-round draft pick of 2013 will be more productive as a situational player when the 49ers employ a four-man line.
“We identified it last year,” 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said last week at the NFL owners meetings in Boca Raton, Florida. “Schematically, he came from a system (at Florida State) that was very attack-oriented into a system that has a lot more reads to it – a lot more technique involved.
“We play more of a read-and-react front in our base package. And in nickel you get into attacking a little bit more. In an effort to make him a read-and-react player, (he) added a bunch of weight, probably got him into a situation Shaq Lawson Womens Jersey that didn't take advantage of what he did well.”
Carradine has said he is most comfortable when he weighs approximately 265 pounds. While he was rehabbing from a torn ACL and getting ready to enter the draft, Carradine's weight dropped to a low of 251 before rising to 276 for the NFL Scouting Combine.
In order to fit as a 3-4 lineman, Carradine put on weight. The 49ers listed him last year at 295 pounds -- a size that is more conducive to playing on a three-man defensive line.
But, finally, last season the 49ers decided he should drop weight and become more of a pass-rush specialist when the 49ers go to their nickel package, which features four down linemen. The idea was never to move Carradine to outside linebacker. But 49ers outside linebackers shift to defensive ends in the nickel package.
“Toward the middle of last year, we switched that put him more in the nickel type role and you saw him start to progress as the season went on,” Baalke said. “So I think you can expect to see him lighter, playing more in the four-man frontshttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-tom-jackson-jersey-c-1_19.html than the three-man fronts and being a strong contributor in that role.”
Carradine has the flexibility to rush the passer from the outside or inside spots along the 49ers' four-game line in nickel situations, Baalke said.
Carradine did not see any action as a rookie in 2013. The 49ers briefly brought him up to the 53-man roster. He spent six weeks on the active roster before the 49ers opted to place him on injured reserve in order to focus on rehabbing the knee.
The past two seasons, Carradine appeared in 23 games and recorded four sacks.
The 49ers did not add a pass rusher in the first three weeks of free agency, but figure to eye players in the draft who can apply heat onhttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-chuck-howley-jersey-c-2_15.html opposing quarterbacks. The team hopes finding a better fit for Carradine, who recorded 16.5 sacks in 24 games at Florida State.
“He's proven to be more effective in an attack-and-react system, more than a read-and-react system,” Baalke said.

Buffalo Bills: Chad Ochocinco Shares Opinion on Sammy Watkins
Buffalo Bills' wide receiver Sammy Watkins has received a lot of criticism since entering the league, but Chad Ochocinco didn't hesitate to call him elite.
It's been quite the debate ever sinceJustin Durant Womens Jersey Sammy Watkins entered the league in 2014 — is he an elite receiver or not? He was definitely scouted as an elite receiver and was drafted by the Buffalo Bills to be an elite receiver, but the question remains.
Luckily, Chad Ochocinco has all the answers.
A Buffalo Bills‘ fan reached out to Chad Ochocinco recently and suggested he come out of retirement and join the Bills. Here's the original tweet sent out:
So, what does this have to do with Sammy Watkins? Well, Ochocinco replied:
Coming from Chad Ochocinco himself, it's hard to disagree with him. Watkins definitely has a lot of talent and still plenty of room to grow, but has he done enough to be named elite at this part of his career?
There's definitely a lot to look at when making that decision.
In my opinion, there are several traits that a receiver must have before being named elite. The main ones are production, consistency, durability, playmaking ability and their role in the locker room. Let's run through each of these and see how Sammy Watkins fares in each area.
In terms of production, Sammy Watkins definitely compares to some of the league's best at the position. Let's look at his most productive season so far in 2015. Watkins finished with 60 receptions, 1,047 yards and 9 touchdowns in just 13 games. If he had played a full season and stayed on that same pace, he could haveMario Edwards Jr Authentic Jersey finished with 71 catches, 1,243 yards and 11 touchdowns.
READ MORE: Buffalo Bills Making All the Right Moves So Far This Offseason
Unfortunately, one of the biggest downfalls in Watkins' short career thus far has been his durability and injury history. Since joining the Buffalo Bills in 2014, he has been limited due to injuries to his ribs, groin, hip, hamstring, calf, ankle and most recently his foot, which kept him off the field for half of last season. It's hard to call any player elite — at any position — when they are constantly dealing with injuries. Elite players need to be durable because they are the most relied on.
When the Buffalo Bills needed Watkins last season, he wasn't there.
That brings us to the next topic — consistency. Obviously, it's hard to be consistent when you're not playing, but even when Watkins was playing he wasn't always consistent. Let's take the second half of the 2015 season and the 8 games he played last season for example.
In the final 9 games of 2015, Watkins was just coming off an ankle injury and completely caught fire. He would total 49 catches for 900 yards and 7 touchdowns in that span. Over that same span, he ranked fourth in the NFL in catches, third in yards and third and third in touchdowns.
He followed that up with a disappointing season lasthttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-latavius-murray-jersey-c-2_8.html year. Playing a total of 8 games, Watkins never found a groove at all. His best game came against the Miami Dolphins Week 16 when he finished with 7 catches for 154 yards and one touchdown. However, he would only total 21 catches, 276 yards and one touchdown the other 7 games.
As far as being healthy, Watkins hasn't shown any kind of consistency. Even when playing, though, there's still no real consistency being shown, which definitely hurts Watkins' case for being elite.

There's two traits left — leadership and playmaking ability.
Much like everything else, Sammy Watkins‘ injuries have hurt his ability to be a leader on this team. It's very hard for anyone to lead from the sidelines, so I'll keep this one short. In order for Watkins to be seen as a leader on this team and more specifically this offense, he's going to need to get healthy and make a difference on the field, first.
One thing he does have going for him, though, is his playmaking ability. There's no questioning the fact that defenses are scared to match up against Watkins. His speed, route-running ability and ability to find the ball and bring it down are unreal. He's one of those receivers that just needs his ball thrown in his direction — he'll do the rest.
In summary, I would say Watkins has two of the five biggest traits needed to be an elite receiver — playmaking ability and production. Unfortunately, both of those traits have been overshadowed by not being healthy and not being on the field.
With a healthy 2017 season, Sammy Watkinshttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-nick-fairley-jersey-c-1_35.html can start to silence a lot of that doubt, but he just simply hasn't done enough in the NFL yet to be viewed as an elite receiver. I definitely feel he will be one at some point, but that time hasn't come yet.
Prove me wrong, Sammy.
What's your take on this debate? Leave your thoughts below!

Syracuse Football Alumni In The NFL Part 5: Riley Dixon
This will be a series discussing Syracuse football players in the National Football League. Here's one of the L.C. Greenwood Womens Jersey most successful SU players in the NFL.
If you'd like to see any of the previous editions you can do so here:
Syracuse Football Alumni: Ryan Nassib
Syracuse Football Alumni: Justin Pugh
Syracuse Football Alumni: Dwight Freeney
The Syracuse football team has not had a lot to cheer for the past couple of seasons and this time of year is the down period for college football fans that have to wait two months until the Spring Game.
Let's continue our walk down memory lane together and discuss the former Orange players who are still lacing up on Sundays.
Let me kick this off by saying Riley is one of my favorite Syracuse players of all time. Huh? What is Paul Sr saying now? Did he Kevin Greene Womens Jersey hit his head? Does he know that Riley was a punter? Ok, ok well let me help erase that minimum wage look off your face as I lay it out for you.
So yes Riley is a punter.
Let us get some of the statistics on the table for you right off. Riley Dixon was selected in the seventh round by the Denver Broncos at number 228.
He was the second of three punters selected in the draft. The other two punters drafter were
Drew Kaser by the San Diego Charger at pick 179 and Lachlan Edwards by the New York J-E-T-S at pick 235.
He had the best rookie campaign of any punter in NFL history with a record 41.3 yard average net per punt and was selected by the Professional Football Writers of America All Rookie Team for 2016.
The hidden stat that defines punters is even more impressive; 31 percent of all of his punts pinned Denver's opponents inside their own twenty yard line.
He is a home grown hero born in Central New York (Oneida, NY) and attended Christian Brothers Academy right here in Syracuse.
In the spirit of Rudy he earned a spot on the roster by walking on in 2011. In 2013 his hard work earned him a well-deserved scholarship. I won't bore you with a pile of statistics of his punting career at Syracuse I will summarize it as follows: his senior year he was a finalist for the Ray Guy award for the best punter in the nation and he holds the record for longest career punt at 75 yards! Soak that in for a moment 75 yards! Three quarters of a football field.
Finally the reasons he is my favorite are the statistics http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-74-anthony-castonzo-jersey-c-1_29.html you were never associated with a punter…he had 4 unassisted tackles credited to him which for the uneducated or slow out there means he was the last line of defense to the other team scoring on a punt return.
He also was the master of the fake punt/field goal, making 4 of 4 attempts his Junior and Senior year when we ran for three first downs and a 42 yard scamper for a touchdown. Not to mention a touchdown pass on a fake field goal.
To wrap this all up Riley Dixon is one of my favorite Syracuse players of all time because he was a smart hard working student that http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-customized-jersey-c-1_11.html would make whatever contribution he could to his team. In the world of today's college athlete we could all use a few more Riley Dixon's.

Kenneth Byron Jones wins City Council Seat B
Tom Bailer and Timothy Joyce attended their final council meeting on March 16 via teleconference for the official swearing in Atlanta-Falcons Womens Jersey of new city councilor Jeff Guard, and CCMC Authority board members John Harvill and Dorne Hawxhurst.
Cordova Mayor Clay Koplin, who officiated at the swearing in, thanked Bailer and Joyce for their service.
While March 15 was their last regular city council meeting, both men were present for the March 16 special meeting, to pass the resolution naming new city council members, CCMC Authority Board members, and the single school board member.
New city councilor Kenneth Jones, school board member Sheryl Glasen, and CCMC Authority Board Members Sally Bennett, April Horton, and Kristin Carpenter, who were unavailable to attend, will be sworn in when available, said Cordova City Clerk Susan Bourgeois.
The March 7 city election results were certified March 15 by the election board.
Councilor Kenneth Byron Jones was declared the winner for Cordova City Council Seat B, after a close race against RJ Kopchak.
“This morning the election board counted 52 absentee, questioned and special needs ballots,” Bourgeois said in an email to local media that included an attachment officially certifying the election.
“It is encouraging to see the number of interested and qualified applicants who ran for city council seats and the CCMC board, this election. The city council seats had two or three candidates for each seat, and from the candidates' statements, there's a positive outlook for Cordova and where it is headed – good reasons for involvement,” Koplin said.
“All five seats on the CCMC board were filled, which is a big deal for a town Cordova's size. It's sometimes hard to attract enough members for a brand-new board to get things started off on the right foot, and thanks to the willingness and interests of citizens, we can get off to that great start,” he said.
Koplin said he has had opportunities to work closely with City Manager Alan Lanning, and with CCMC's administrator, Scot Mitchell.
“Both organizations have strong administrative leadership. Supportive board and council leadership, focused on improving the policies and governance of these organizations, will complement the executive leadership, and take both organizations to a great place – which is critical for the community, given the current economics,” he said.
Earlier this month Councilor Robert Beedle Brian Robison Womens Jersey presented the council with an update on the harbor commission meetings.
Repairs on some finger floats are underway in the Cordova Small Boat Harbor.
“Lumber came in for the finger float repairs. There's some finger floats on the west side in pretty bad shape. As they're disassembling it, there's actual talk of being able to do some of (the repairs) in the water,” Beedle said.
The commission had discussed setting a date with Lanning for the harbor commission's strategic planning meeting, he said.
Beedle reminded the council that shipping waste oil out of Cordova came at a $30,000 price tag last year, and that the harbor commission is exploring options to mitigate that cost.
Bailer said he'd spoken with a harbor department employee about the misuse of the dumpsters around Cordova's harbor area.

The employee had removed large cardboard boxes, particleboard shelves, and a copper and brass radiator from a harbor dumpster. These items should not be put into city dumpsters, and cannot be properly disposed of at the city bailer facility, as they will damage the machinery used to compact and bale household trash.
“We need to start taking pictures of this and post them. We need to police this. Think about the man-hours at the harbor, taking these things to the burn pile or to the dump,” Bailer said.
An ordinance that would have approved the purchase of necessary hospital equipment, and made a city walkway safer and American Disabilities Act compliant failed 6-1 on its second reading before council March 15, with Beedle, who opposed funding the sidewalk upgrades, casting the only no vote.
Beedle shared his concerns that the two dissimilar funding requests were lumped into ordinance 1151, which would have authorized the transfer of $252,466.96 from the general reserve fund to the general fund. Of that total, $117,000 was slated for a UPS (Universal Power Source) for the Cordova Community Medical Center, and $135,466.96 was to be sent to the State of Alaska for the city's matching funds for the Adams Avenue sidewalk upgrades.
The city had previously received a state grant for this project in 2016, with the state providing almost a 5-to-1 match in grant funds, but http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-eli-harold-jersey-c-1_19.html the project had not been pursued due to shortfalls in the FY17 operating budget.
Council had discussed borrowing the matching funds for the project from the city's general reserve fund this year, to complete the sidewalk upgrades.
Beedle spoke in favor of the money which would have been allocated to CCMC for the UPS system, but said he couldn't vote yes to the Adams Avenue sidewalk upgrades, considering this year's budget gap.
“I am in support of the UPS; the equipment is essential for the hospital's needs. It will help the community, the hospital, the patients, there are a lot of reasons to vote for it. But, Adams Street is a want, not a need. We're not going to lose the money. I cannot and will not support it (as it stands). It is fiscally irresponsible to keep spending money we don't have,” Beedle said prior to the vote.
Joyce said council had previously discussed its intention of paying the money back to the reserve fund over time, as well as giving Lanning authorization to pull the plug on the Adams Avenue upgrades, if the project didn't work out as expected.
The failed ordinance was referred to city staff, to be decided on how best the city should proceed further on the topic.
It is expected a new ordinance may be written to include only the allocation for CCMC's UPS system, and then come back to council for a first reading and vote during the April 5 regular city council session.
A separate ordinance, authorizing the city council to transfer $860,000 from the general reserve fund to the general fund for debt services, and $16,000 from the general reserve fund to the governmental capital projects fund for the purchase of a new blood storage refrigerator for CCMC, passed unanimously on its second reading.
The final tally of the March 7 city election results released and certified on March 15, is as follows:

Cordova City Council, Seat B: Kenneth Jones, 209 votes; RJ Kopchak, 179 votes; Michael Van Schumm, 32 votes. City Council Seat C: Jeff Guard, 265 votes; Enrico Venzon, 110 votes.
Cordova School Board incumbent Sheryl Glasen, 403 votes.
Cordova Community Medical Center Authority Board: Kristin http://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-tyrod-taylor-jersey-c-1_51.html Carpenter, 344, three-year term; Sally Bennett, 316 votes, two-year term; April Horton, 309 votes, two-year term; Dorne Hawxhurst, 302 votes, one-year term; John Harvill, 253 votes, one-year term.

Ex-Cowboy Jack Crawford could be pleasant surprise for Falcons
A breakdown of the first week of free agency for the Atlanta Falcons:
Most significant signing: Jack Shaquil Barrett Womens Jersey Crawford. The former Dallas Cowboys defensive end wasn't a name most people had heard leading into free agency, but the Falcons signed him to a three-year, $8.8 million deal ($3 million guaranteed) while bargain shopping. Those familiar with Crawford say he's a relentless competitor and a tough guy. Those are the types of qualities coach Dan Quinn wants in a defensive lineman. Crawford played off the left edge with the Cowboys but is versatile enough to play any position along the line. The Falcons view him as a defensive end in the base defense and an interior guy in the nickel.
Most significant loss: Patrick DiMarco. The fullback position is undervalued league-wide, but DiMarco was a one-time Pro Bowl pick and a significant contributor for the Falcons. He opened holes in the running game for both Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. DiMarco also showed up in the passing game with 20 catches for 162 yards and three touchdowns in the previous two seasons. Sure, the Falcons can find a fullbackChuck Howley Womens Jersey through free agency or via the draft, but finding one who fits the system as well as DiMarco could be a challenge.
Player they should have signed: T.J. Lang. The Falcons inquired about the former Packers offensive guard, but Lang obviously was out of their price range. Lang visited Seattle before finally signing with the Detroit Lions. He would have been a nice addition to the outside-zone blocking scheme, but not for $9.5 million per year.
What's next: The Falcons still need to see if they can lure nose tackle Dontari Poe back to town after Poe already made a visit. At the same time, the Falcons can't overspend on a guy who might not be a game-changer. Poe has other suitors, including the Jaguars, Colts and Dolphins. If Poe isn't an option, then maybe free-agent http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-gavin-escobar-jersey-c-2_53.html mystery Johnathan Hankins or recently released Roy Miller could be options at defensive tackle. The Falcons also need to figure out what's going on at right guard with veteran Chris Chester pondering if he wants to continue playing. Even if Chester returns, the Falcons need to find their right guard of the future, although Quinn has confidence in Ben Garland and Wes Schweitzer.
Overall grade: B-minus. As expected, the Falcons haven't made a big splash just yet, although the 340-plus pound Poe would change all that. Re-signing quarterback Matt Schaub, tight end Levine Toilolo, safety Kemal Ishmael, and linebacker LaRoy Reynolds was important in terms of depth. Then getting Andre Roberts as a potential http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-keith-mcgill-jersey-c-2_52.html return man and replacement to Eric Weems helps. But again, nothing flashy going on with the Falcons, although general manager Thomas Dimitroff said the Falcons had no major holes to fill.

Cowboys make OT contingency plans to Chaz Green in signing Byron Bell
Veteran offensive linemanBradley Pinion Authentic Jersey and Greenville, Texas native Byron Bell has signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys, providing a much-needed presence within the unit. With RT Doug Free's plans to retire this offseason, and Chaz Green's injury history, the team faces major question marks about right tackle in 2017. Bringing in Bell is a more-than-solid response.
View image on Twitter
Bell has started 72 games over his five-year career, most of them as a member of the Panthers. Originally a 2011 undrafted free agent out Thurman Thomas Womens Jersey of the University of New Mexico, Bell played right tackle for the Panthers for the first three years of his career. Carolina flipped him to left tackle in 2014, and then the next year he signed with Tennessee as a free agent. Bell started all 16 games for the Titans in 2015, playing three different positions (RT, LT, and LG). He would break his ankle during OTAs last season, keeping him out for the entirety of 2016.
Dallas tried to have a transition for Free's eventual retirement in pace, drafting Green in the third round of the 2015 draft. He's been constantly injured, appearing in only four games over two seasons. It's possible Green can still pull ithttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-riley-dixon-jersey-c-1_48.html together and play a meaningful role on this team, but his injury history shows that he cannot be relied upon to provide that next season.
Offensive lineman La'el Collins and Zack Martin each have experience playing tackle in college, and either player could kick outside. However, that would just move the team's hole from tackle to guard. In Bell, the Cowboys now have an experienced and steady option capable of standing in for Free. The team can still electhttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-chuck-howley-jersey-c-2_15.html to bring in another lineman via the draft, furthering the competition for the open starting spot. Dallas has long benefitted from having solid offensive line depth, which could pay off greatly again in 2017.

Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim has foot surgery after workout injury
FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys tight Geoff Swaim Youth Jersey end Geoff Swaim is likely out until training camp because of foot surgery this week, sources told ESPN.
Swaim suffered the injury in informal workouts this week at The Star. Players are allowed to work out at the team's facility but cannot have contact with coaches. The Cowboys coaches are off this week. Swaim had a screw insertedhttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-otis-sistrunk-jersey-c-2_27.html into his foot to help secure the bones and will likely be held out until the team leaves for training camp in Oxnard, California, in July.
Swaim missed the final seven games last season because of a torn pectoral tendon that required surgery. That injury has healed fine and he can continue to build up strength as he recovers from the foot operation.
Last season Swaim handled the No. 2 tight end duties behind Jason Witten with James Hanna missing the year with a knee injury. He caught six passes for 69 yards but was an effective blocker in the Cowboys' two-tight end sets.
Hanna is continuing to recover from his knee surgery in the middle of last season but should be ready for training camp if not sooner. Thehttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-khalil-mack-jersey-c-2_11.html Cowboys also like the potential of Rico Gathers, a sixth-round pick who spent last season on the practice squad after a standout basketball career at Baylor.

Adventurous offseason for Raiders All-Pro has Jack Del Rio nervous
Kelechi Osemele is making this NFL offseason Jesse James Womens Jersey an adventurous one — to the consternation of Raiders coach Jack Del Rio.
Osemele, an All-Pro left guard, posted two exhilarating experiences this week from his trip to New Zealand.
First, Osemele put video on Twitter of him tackling a Class IV rapid. Del Rio saw the video and responded on Twitter, expressing concern for Osemele http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-76-joe-reitz-jersey-c-1_31.html and traveling teammates Brynden Trawick and Taiwan Jones.
Osemele wasn't done with thrilling times, though. He also went to the Nevis Swing, which claims to be the biggest swing in the world. It stands 160 meters (524.934 feet) above the river, uses a rope 120 meters (393.701) long and has a 300-meter arc (984.252 feet).
Osemele tried — and succeeded — and launching http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-corey-liuget-jersey-c-1_9.html himself into a back flip as he left the platform.
No word from Del Rio about the latter venture. As long as Osemele makes it home safely, Coach will be OK.

Sterling Moore re-signs with Saints
METAIRIE, La. -- While their pursuit of Oakland-Raiders Womens Jersey New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler remains in limbo, the New Orleans Saints agreed Tuesday to a one-year contract with Sterling Moore, the veteran cornerback who started 12 games for them last year.
Moore's agent, Andy Simms, confirmed the deal on Twitter. Terms were not disclosed.
The 27-year-old Moore was an excellent fill-in for the Saints after signing in Week 1 last year and earning a full-time job because of injurieshttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-chris-doleman-jersey-c-2_39.html at the position. Even if the Saints do wind up trading for Butler, Moore could serve a valuable role as the nickel back alongside Butler and Delvin Breaux.
Moore has played for six different teams since going undrafted in 2011, but he he has been a solid part-time starter in many of his landing spots.
The 5-foot-10, 202-pounder led the Saints in 2016 with 13 passes defensed, and he tied for the team lead with two interceptions while starting 12 games for an injury-riddled secondary.
Moore has six career interceptions and fivehttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-deforest-buckner-jersey-c-1_16.html forced fumbles with the Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2015), Dallas Cowboys (2012-14) and Patriots (2011-2012). He also spent time in training camps with the Oakland Raiders in 2011 and Buffalo Bills in 2016.

Joey Porter will be honored at the Mel Blount All-Star Celebrity Roast.
When Mel Blount turned 50, he wanted Jesse James Womens Jersey to celebrate with his family, friends, and former teammates. But he also wanted to do something that would help others at the same time. So with that, the Mel Blount All-Star Celebrity Roast was born, and it continues to this day.
Each year Blount honors, and entertainingly roasts, a former Steelers player at the event, with the proceeds benefitting the Mel Blount Youth Home, and more recently the Mel Blount Youth Leadership Initiative.
This year's honoree is Steelers' outside58 Trent Cole Womens Jersey linebackers coach Joey Porter. Porter will be honored at the dinner, which will be held on April 7 at the Westin Convention Center, for his contribution to the Steelers as a player and coach, as well as his passion to give back. Porter and his wife Christy opened three different Jasmine Nyree Day Centers in their hometown of Bakersfield, California, a place where children with special needs, from age three to high school, receive the attention, teaching, and development they need, somethinghttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-dj-fluker-jersey-c-1_12.html that came about because their daughter Jasmine is autistic.
“It's great that we share that passion,” said Blount. “I knew there was something about Joey. I just knew he was a good guy. I've always believed in him when he played and got to know him. I am happy he is doing some good things.”
Jerome Bettis, Porter's former teammate, will be http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-new-york-giants-c-1_441.html the emcee and other former teammates will help roast Porter at the dinner.

2016 Player Exit Meetings – CB Justin Gilbert
The Pittsburgh Steelers find that their 2016 season ended a bit prematurely, and are undergoing the exit meeting process a couple Chris Doleman Womens Jersey weeks sooner than they would have liked. Never the less, what must be done must be done, and we are now at the time of the year where we close the book on one season and look ahead to the next.
While we might not know all the details about what goes on between Head Coach Mike Tomlin and his players during these exit meetings, we do know how we would conduct those meetings if they were let up to us. So here are the Depot's exit meetings for the Steelers' roster following the 2016 season.
I'm quickly moving on to Justin Gilbert now because frankly I'm at a very real risk of simply forgetting that he was a part of the Steelers in 2016, considering that he only spent about five or six months in total with the organization from the time that he was acquired via trade to the time that he was released.
The Steelers acquired Gilbert from the Browns Sharrif Floyd Womens Jersey via trade in early September just before the start of the regular season, giving up a sixth-round draft pick in the 2018 NFL Draft in order to claim him. They also took on his former first-round pick salary, which was a commitment that they were willing to take on in order to see what a player they once coveted coming out of college would look in their uniform.
As should not be surprising, the cornerback received limited playing time when considering the fact that he only became a part of the team in September. He did receive a handful of snaps against the Chiefs early in the season as he http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-michael-crabtree-jersey-c-2_55.html was used in a dime package to coverage their tight end.
He only received playing time on defense in other games once or twice after that, if I recall correctly, and with again a very limited role. When he was dealing with an injury, the team even gave his role away to Al-Hajj Shabazz.
Gilbert returned three kicks during the regular season for 69 yards, averaging 23 yards per return with a long of 32 yards. In the previous season with the Browns, he averaged over 28 yards per kick return on 12 kicks.
In all, he registered three tackles on the season, all of them coming in Week 12 or beyond, and presumably all of them serving in a special teams capacity. He was active for two of the team's three playoff games, but did not record a statistic.
Facing the prospect of committing to another significant salary, the Steelers released Gilbert in early February. There was confusion at the time as to whether or not his salary was guaranteed, but that proved not to be the case. Gilberthttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-khalil-mack-jersey-c-2_11.html currently remains unsigned and will likely stay that way until after the draft. A reunion with Pittsburgh is not impossible, but it can probably be considered unlikely at this point.

Steelers 2017 Free Agents Analysis: FB Roosevelt Nix – Exclusive Rights (Re-Signed)
I have made liberal use of the 78 Ryan Kelly Youth Jersey phrases “fan favorite” and “everybody's favorite player” during this series to typically refer to players that have been less than favorably greeted by the Steelers' fan base, but one player to whom such labels would not be ironically applied is fullback Roosevelt Nix, who has legitimately been a fan favorite pretty much since training camp of 2015.
A product of Kent state as an undersized defensive lineman, Nix was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Falcons in 2014 to be looked at as a linebacker. Over the course of their evaluation, they tried to move him to fullback, but the transition didn't stick any more than he did to their 53-man roster.
The Steelers signed him to a reserve contract in January 2015 as a linebacker, but they switched him to fullback as well during the spring. Because Brandon Mebane Womens Jersey Will Johnson was dealing with an injury, Nix got a lot of burn on offense and they simply kept using him, though he really made the team because of his performance on special teams.
Yet his absence on offense and on special teams was apparent during the early portions of the 2016 season while he was sidelined with a back injury. They pretty much abandoned the use of the fullback until he returned, with David Johnson getting just a couple of snaps in that role.
The Steelers turned to him more and more in the second half of the season as they turned the offense more to the running game, and that coincided with their longest winning streak since the 2004 season. Nix played a small but not insignificant role in that development. He was especially featured during a record-setting rushing day up in Buffalo.
One important point is that he continued to play well http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-new-england-patriots-c-1_331.html on special teams, in addition. He registered seven tackles despite missing a lot of games and having his duties curtailed in others while he was working his way back from the back injury.
Free Agency Outlook:
It should not be surprising that the Steelers quickly got Nix back under contract early in the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent, though this will be the last season that they have complete control over their fullback.
2017 will see the completion of Nix's third full season in the league, which will make him a restricted free agent, and which will give him more flexibility. Not that there is much of a robust market for fullbacks, and thus probably not something to worry much about, but it is a consideration if they have to tag him.
I speculate every year about how much the role of thehttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-chris-doleman-jersey-c-2_39.html fullback will expand or contract from one year to the next. 2016 saw a bit of a detour because of injuries. I do wonder what a fully healthy 2017 will look like for Nix.

Mike Tomlin on Landry Jones: 'He has continually improved'
Mike Tomlin explained why the Steelers Joe Berger Authentic Jersey elected to re-sign Landry Jones to be their backup quarterback for the next two seasons.
The team's fourth round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Jones signed a two-year, $4.4 million deal to remain with the Steelers through the 2018 season earlier this month.
"He has continually improved over his four years with us. He's answered the call and really answered the call in an above the line manner," Tomlin said to Steelers.com's Missy Matthews. "He's been given an opportunity to grow and show growth, and that growth has been consistent from our perspective. The opportunity that he had in Week 17 to deliver victory for us was a great experience for him, it was a great information gathering for us.
"We're extremely conformable with the overall trajectory of his career, (and) we're hopeful for what he's able to provide for us moving forward."
Love the Pittsburgh Steelers? Then what are you waiting for? Stay in the loop and sign up for our FREE Steelers newsletter!
Jones, who is 2-2 as Pittsburgh's starting quarterback over the past two seasons, pursued a starting opportunity with other NFL franchises this offseason. But after not getting any opportunities to compete for a starting quarterback job on the open market, Jones decided to return to Pittsburgh.
"I wasn't going to be stupid. If there was a place to Otis Sistrunk Womens Jersey go play somewhere, I would want to take that chance and give myself that take that opportunity," Jones said shortly after resigning with the Steelers. "It didn't turn out. So once that was over with, I was like, 'Shoot, I'm going go back to Pittsburgh.'
"There wasn't any tough decision about it. I'm very familiar with this place, and I'm just thankful that I have a job and a spot to come back to. It was the best decision for me and my family. For us, if all things were equal, I wasn't going to go anywhere. I wasn't going to leave Pittsburgh. They've treated me so well here, so that's where my mindset was."
After not receiving a single regular season snap during his first two NFL seasons, injuries thrust him Jones action for the first time six games into the 2015 season, in which he responded by throwing a pair of second half touchdown passes to Martavis Bryant in the Steelers' 25-13 victory over a Cardinals team that would eventually reach the NFC title game.
The Steelers saw tangible evidence in Jones' growth during the 2016 season. He threw four touchdowns against two interceptions in 2016 after throwing three touchdowns and five picks in 2015. He also completed 61.6 percent of his passes last http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-latavius-murray-jersey-c-2_8.html season after completing just 58.2 percent of his throws during the 2015 season. He threw for 281 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Patriots in Week 7, and he engineered a comeback victory over the Browns in Week 17 that ended with a game-winning touchdown pass to Cobi Hamilton in overtime.
Despite some of the criticism from the outside, Jones is excited to be back in Pittsburgh, where he will look to continue to backup Ben Roethlisberger for the foreseeable future.
"It's just a huge weight off of my shoulders, for sure," he said. "It was constantly in the back of my mind the whole time after the Patriots game. Justhttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-will-lutz-jersey-c-1_48.html to have it done is a huge weight off my shoulders.
"The Rooney's treat you great. All of the coaches treat you great. It's just a great chance to be."

Ravens reportedly will sign ex-Chargers running back Danny Woodhead
The Baltimore Ravens 26 Clayton Geathers Womens Jersey are looking to address their lackluster running game and hope Danny Woodhead will be the answer. The Ravens will sign the veteran running back when free agency officially begins Thursday, NFL Network reported Wednesday.
Woodhead's season was cut short Doug Flutie Womens Jersey last year after suffering an ACL injury in Week 2. The 32-year-old spent the past four years in San Diego, where he was a threat coming out of the backfield.
In 2015, he had 80 catches for 755 yards and six touchdowns in the passing game in addition to 336 yards and three TDs on the ground. Thehttp://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-san-diego-chargers-c-1_1345.html Ravens could use a boost at running back after finishing 28th in the league in rushing yards last season.
Woodhead, who will be joininghttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-laquon-treadwell-jersey-c-2_42.html his fourth team, first made a name for himself with the Patriots, spending two-plus years in New England.

Jacksonville Jaguars equipped for Cinderella season in 2017
South Carolina is in the Final Four, which Marcus Sherels Womens Jersey is surprising to me -- mainly because I thought they cancelled men's basketball.
Or something like that.
Seriously, though: I picked against South Carolina in every single round, starting against Marquette. Beat Duke? Never crossed my mind. After all, prior to this magical month, the program hadn't won an NCAA tournament game since 1973. This is just their second tourney appearance since 1998. I had ample reason to doubt.
Now, I'm obsessed.
The Gamecocks play terrific defense and turn it into buckets. The offense has been on fire. Frank Martin is a fantastic, hard-nosed coach and the team takes on his personality. The Gamecocks aren't just winning these games -- they're destroying the opposition in the second half, knocking out more decorated and higher-ranked teams.
With South Carolina authoring a true Cinderella run and hitting the Final Four for the first time in program history, the crack staff at NFL.com asked me to forecast a Cinderella team for the 2017 NFL season. Which pro football squad can be a mirror image of this Gamecocks basketball team?
So, you need a team that didn't make the playoffs last season. (I actually had to jog the mental rolodex and remember whether or not the Lions hit the postseason, but I digress.) You need a team with little history, a team with a hard-nosedSean Davis Jersey coach whom the nation is ready to appreciate. You need an underdog team America can get behind and cheer for.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet your 2017 NFL Cinderella, the Jacksonville Jaguars.
See, I don't even know yet if I'm picking Jacksonville to make the playoffs. But that's the point. Even just a few weeks ago, who in their right mind envisioned South Carolina competing for a national title -- in basketball? You can't be Cinderella if everyone assumes you'll be the belle of the ball. And let's be honest: Jacksonville has some serious questions heading into the 2017 campaign. Allow me to address those right off the bat.
First of all, many folks expected a breakthrough performance by the Jaguars last season. And they disappointed in a major way, going 3-13 and finishing deep in the AFC South cellar. But let's take a closer look at that 3-13 for a second. Jacksonville wasn't getting blown off the field. The Jaguars lost eight games by seven points or fewer. And Jacksonville's most impressive win -- a 38-17 pasting of the Titans in Week 16 -- came in Doug Marrone's first game as the interim coach, replacing the fired Gus Bradley. In related news: Marrone earned the permanent gig and will be leading the Jags in 2017. This is no small thing. As I said a few weeks ago, Gus Bradley is a nice guy ... but a terrible head coach. Marrone is a large upgrade. And now that he has Tom Coughlin running the front office? Yeah, I think Jacksonville's pointed in the right direction.
OK, let's address the elephant in the room -- or, shall I say, the elephant under center. Blake Bortles has this problem. It's throwing the forward pass. But I do know that Marrone believes in the former No. 3 overall pick. And with Marrone running the show for the final two games of last season, Bortles did look pretty good, completing 66 percent of his passes for 626 yards, two touchdowns and zero picks -- good enough for a 99.8 quarterback rating. I think it's set up for Bortles to be ... good? Solid in the first half (unlike last year)? Improved? I'm Ron Burgundy?
For real, though: Bortles has talent around him -- like my guy Allen Robinson. And Robinson isn't alone in that receiving corps: Allen Hurns is one year removed from a 1,000-yard campaign, while Marqise Lee took a big step forward last season. And speaking of the passing game, you gotta protect the quarterback. Bortles has been sacked a whopping 140 times in three pro seasons. Well, Jacksonville went out and upgraded http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-marcus-gilbert-jersey-c-2_23.html his blind-side protection with the trade for Branden Albert. In the backfield, the Jags have a pair of bruisers in Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon. Truth be told, though, I would love to see them add talent in next month's draft, which is filled with strong runners. How much of a boost could Leonard Fournette provide to this offense?
And did I mention Marrone?
Before this year's NCAA tournament, Frank Martin didn't exactly make people feel all warm and fuzzy. But he already won March with his brilliance and aplomb. (Oh, and that fabulous exchange with the young Sports Illustrated for Kids reporter didn't hurt.) Martin's personality wasn't always viewed as a positive when he wasn't winning.
In a similar vein, Marrone is one tough son of a gun. He isn't in this business to make friends. But from my own personal interactions with the coach, I think he is a great guy. And I would encourage him to show that side to the public -- like Martin has -- when applicable.
These Jaguars are going to be tough and disciplined and well-coached. Like the Gamecocks. Marrone and Coughlin will add the attitude and toughness that's been missing in Jacksonville for quite some time.
So will the great Calais Campbell, who was a fantastic leader and player in Arizona. Campbell will hold this team accountable. And his overpowering, versatile game will give the defense a new dimension up front. I also loved the free-agent signing of A.J. Bouye. With Bouye and second-year stud Jalen Ramsey, the Jaguars now have one of the better cornerback tandems in the NFL. Honestly, this defense is loaded with talent at every level. Myles Jack and Dante Fowler Jr. haven't even scratched the surface yet. Last season, Jacksonville ranked sixth in total defense ... but 25th in scoring D. Thinkin' the latter ranking will comehttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-sean-smith-jersey-c-2_47.html a lot closer to the former in 2017.
Budding talent ready to shine. A hard-nosed coach poised to earn your affection. Commitment to defense and toughness. Sound like a team ready to shock the football world?

Jay Cutler is only good enough to get his next head coach fired
NFL veteran Jay Cutler has Jihad Ward Authentic Jersey the best resume of any free agent quarterback still on the market, but his former offensive coordinator - current Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase - gave Cutler a glowing review to reporters at the NFL owners' meetings.
On Wednesday's episode of Undisputed, Hall of Famers Cris Carter and Shannon Sharpe warned NFL coaches and executives that they wouldTim Lelito Womens Jersey be making a huge mistake by signing Cutler to be their new starting QB.
Adam Gase: I don't get why people hate Jay Cutler
“I don't get all the hatred toward him. I see a guy that worked hard and did everything he could to try to help his team win and sacrificed his body. To me he was an athletic quarterback that could throw the ball, and when you got to third down you could call the worst play possible and he was going to get you the conversion.
He made a lot of the things we did look really good. I guess I just don't get it. I thinkhttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-garrett-celek-jersey-c-1_21.html he has a lot to offer a team. I think he's a starting quarterback in the NFL.”
Cutler will inevitably cost his coach a job
“Is he a starting quarterback in the league? Yes. Can he provide some of the things that you want from your starting quarterback? Yes.
But if you're the head coach, you're the offensive coordinator, eventually what's going to happen with Jay Cutler? You're going to lose your daggone job. That's what his history says.
For me, [Cutler] is a great talent - but is he a great http://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-thurman-thomas-jersey-c-1_50.html quarterback? No. Is he a great leader? No.
He'll get you just close enough and get you interested in just enough games to get your heart broken.”

Rakim Net Worth 2017 – William Michael Griffin Net Worth
William Michael Griffin – more commonly Steve Atwater Jersey known as his stage name Rakim, is undoubtedly one of the most influential emcees of all time. A member of the hip-hop duo Eric B. & Rakim from the golden age, he first rome to fame in the music scene in the late 80's. Since then, he has amassed a number of industry awards and has also been inducted into the renowoned Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As far as net worth goes however, how wealthy exactly is the MC? Let us take a look.
Born on January 28, 1968 in Long Island, New York, Rakim first made live recordings while still in high school under the moniker, Kid Wizard. At the age of twenty, his talents caught the attention of DJ Eric Barrier, who at the time worked for the WBLS radio station. Recruiting the help of the aspiring MC, Barrier soon took Rakim as his protege. Later that year in 1986, they released a track entitled, Eric B. Is President, which ended Dan Bailey Youth Jersey up being a success. Little did the two know at the time, that they would eventually become one of the most popular hip hop duos of the era. Wanting to capitalize on the success of their single, the pair- now known as Eric B. & Rakim, forged a recording contract with 4th & Broadway Records; they subsequently released two singles, I Know You Got Soul and Ain't No Joke. Finally a year later, they came out with their debut album, Paid in Full. A smash hit, it eventually went on to sell over 1,000,000 copies within the United States alone, which resulted in much profits for the artists.
Continuing to record together over the next fews years, Rakim ultimately earned much of his initial wealth while performing and recording with his partner in crime, Eric Barrier. For instance just a year later, they released a second studio album entitled, Follow the Leader, which quickly proved to be yet another hit on the charts. Since then, it http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-jason-witten-jersey-c-2_10.htmlhas sold more than 500,000 copies domestically- a fact that undoubtedly helped Rakim's growing wealth at the time. Following up, Eric & Rakim eventually dropped a third album, Let the Rhythm Hit'Em in the summer of 1990; it marked the duo's third RIAA-certified album. Regarded as the premier MC team in all of hip hop during the late 80's, they were one of the most influential combos during that period. Just with Eric alone, Rakim has sold well over a million records across the globe.
However his accomplishments does not end there- aside from the success that he attained with Eric, Rakim has also embarked on a successful solo music career. Following the duo's split in 1993, Rakim signed with the Universal Music Group with whom he later released his debut studio album entitled, The 18th Letter in the fall of 1997. Already bathed in fame from his time as a member of the hip hop duo, the album only increased http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-terence-newman-jersey-c-2_12.html his already sky-high popularity. Charting at number four on the US Billboard Top 200, it later sold over 500,000 copies, garnering it Gold accreditation from the RIAA.

Is Gerald Hodges a viable linebacker option for Packers?
Gerald Hodges is currently a Carlos Hyde Womens Jersey free agent after spending the last two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. He was able to have his best season in 2016, posting 83 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions.
So would Hodges, who can play inside or outside linebacker, be a good fit for the Green Bay Packers?
Gary Davenport of Bleacher Report released Thurman Thomas Womens Jersey his list of the one bargain player each team should pursue and the he believes the Packers should go after Hodges. Here's a look at what Davenport had to say about the Packers chances of signing the former 49er.
The Packers are now in the offseason and there's a lothttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-steve-atwater-jersey-c-1_21.html of work to be done to get ready for next season. Make sure you're in the loop – take five seconds to Sign up for our FREE Packers newsletter now!
Davenport also said that the Packers will likely draft a linebacker and not sign Hodges. Thompson normally goes after guys like Hodges, but the http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-chaz-green-jersey-c-2_32.html Packers believe Ryan and Martinez will get better and if a guy like T.J. Watt is available for the Packers in the draft, they will likely select him than bring in Hodges on the cheap.

Bleacher Report pegs DE Shaq Lawson as Bills' 2017 breakout star
The 2016 NFL season didn't go as plannedJack Crawford Authentic Jersey for the Buffalo Bills. After finishing 8-8 in 2015 under then first-year coach Rex Ryan, the Bills were pegged as a team set to make noise with an improved defense and a more experienced quarterback in Tyrod Taylor.
Unfortunately, Buffalo regressed in 2016, finishing the campaign with a 7-9 record. One reason for the Bills' failed season was a rash of injuries stunting the team's potential.
Buffalo's first two selections from their 2016 NFLMario Edwards Jr Authentic Jersey draft class, linebackers Shaq Lawson and Reggie Ragland, both missed significant time, which severely impacted the Bills' defense as the two rookies were expected to contribute immediately and have a major impact.
Heading into 2017, both players will be fully healthy and ready to impress the new coaching staff led by Sean McDermott. However, according to Bleacher Report NFL Analyst Sean Tomlinson, it's Lawson who is expected to be the team's breakout star in coach McDermott's aggressive 4-3 defensive front.
McDermott's defense relies on generating pressure with the front four while playing zone coverage on the back end. Buffalo's defensive line is the team's strength, with two star defensive tackles in Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams, and a defensive end who has a pair of 10 sack seasons under his belt in Jerry Hughes. Now, Lawsonhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-fred-biletnikoff-jersey-c-2_35.html is expected to make the transition back to defensive end where he became such a force as in college.
During his time at Clemson, Lawson racked up 123 tackles, 45.5 tackles-for-loss and 20 sacks in 37 games. Throughout his career, Lawson was a part of a dominant defensive front that boasted 2016 NFL sack leader Vic Beasley and other highly regarded Tigers' draft picks such as defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, linebacker Stephone Anthony and defensive end Kevin Dodd.
With the Bills hosting a similar set of star powerhttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-nate-stupar-jersey-c-1_34.html along the defensive line in Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams and Jerry Hughes, Lawson will have the surrounding talent to excel in his sophomore campaign — just like he did at Clemson.

New guard at Bassmaster Elites
The guard has changed in Bassmaster.
The young are in charge, and the old stars are fading.
It seems strange to call people like Kevin VanDam and Mike Iaconelli old. They're young in terms of age, but they are grizzled veteransRobert Golden Womens Jersey in the downward arcs of their career trajectories.
Iaconelli, who won the Bassmaster Classic 14 years ago, made the top five of the Bassmaster Classic at Lake Conroe. Had he won, he said he would have announced his retirement from the weigh-in stage. He almost did anyway, but he said he "chickened out."
I wondered if he were joking when he said that at the Classic's final news conference, but he said it privately to a senior Bassmaster writer, as well.
In 2005, when I became outdoors editor of this newspaper, the first tournament I covered was a Bassmaster Elite 50 tournament at Lake Dardanelle. The E50s predated the Elite Series, which is considered the sport's modern era. At that time, Iaconelli was the most exciting and most controversial angler in the history of the sport. He's from Philadelphia, a fast-talking, hyper-emotional, temperamental, often profane breakdancer, skateboarder and graffiti artist with tattoos on much of his body.
During that tournament I wrote that depending on one's age, Iaconelli was either the best or worst thing to ever happen to professional fishing. "He is neither," I wrote. "He is merely the latest big thing."
He hasn't been for awhile, but he has aged gracefully and is now one of the sport's elder statesmen. He is still the most compelling interview and the most generous and accommodating to fans and media, but he's ready to move on to the next phase of his life.
VanDam, not so much. He missed the Classic two Lynn Swann Womens Jersey years ago, which seemed unthinkable. He no longer instills the fear and awe that he did in 2013-14 when he won his third and fourth Classics back to back, and it eats at him.
During the final weigh-in Sunday at Houston's Minute Maid Park, VanDam sounded fragile and vulnerable as he talked about how much he still wants to win, and how important the competition is to him.
"It sounds like he's trying to convince himself," I said to another media member.
Another thing. People call him by his name again, VanDam. He's not "KVD" anymore.
VanDam won four Classics and seven Angler-of-The-Year titles because he is an exceptional fisherman, but what set him apart from everyone else was his intensity and single-minded will to win.
If your intensity slips just a little in any vocation, you're in the pack and not in front of it. A lot of hungry young wolves are ready to take your place. VanDam -- KVD -- is still the one to beat because he is the greatest angler of our time, but there's a lot more greatness behind him than in front of him.
Jordan Lee, 25, won the Classic on Sunday. One event doesn't define a trend or a movement, but Lee has already competed in three Classics. He has finished fifth and first.
In 41 tournaments, he's finished 14 times in the top 10, 20 times in the top 20 and 26 times in the top 30. He's finished in the money 33 times. That http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-15-phillip-dorsett-jersey-c-1_6.html is the definition of consistency.
In just four years on the Elite Series Tour, James Elam, 31, of Tulsa, has been in two Classics. He finished fourth at Lake Conroe.
It's also noteworthy that Lee and Elam came up through the Bassmaster College Series.
The college series will be an increasingly prominent pipeline for young anglers to reach the professional ranks because it provides the structure and discipline that's necessary for success in the pros. It also provides equipment that many college students can't afford on their own.
Bradley Roy, 26, finished seventh at Lake Conroe in his first Classic. Roy graduated from high school a semester early in 2009 so he could fish a Bassmaster Southern Open tournament in early 2010. He qualified for the Elite Series and was the 2010 Elite Series Rookie of the Year. He's also one of most social media savvy anglers in the sport.
Sports fans don't take well to change. I cried when Bob Lilly, Chuck Howley and Lee Roy Jordan retired from the Dallas Cowboys. Find them http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-hunter-henry-jersey-c-1_23.html on YouTube if you don't know they are. They broke my pre-teen, blue star loving heart.
New stars replaced them that were as much or more fun to watch.
A new generation has taken over the Bassmaster Elite Series. Embrace them. Enjoy them. Someday, one of them -- maybe Jordan Lee -- will accomplish as much or more than KVD.

Drew Brees, 38, on contract: 'Can worry about it at end of year'
NEW ORLEANS -- Drew Brees keeps insisting that he isn't worried about a contract extension, even though he is heading into the final Minnesota-Vikings Authentic Jersey year of his current deal.
And the 38-year-old quarterback also understands that the New Orleans Saints need to be "prepared" for a future without him at some point.
But Brees isn't ready to recommend that they use one of their two first-round draft picks on his successor just yet.
"I'm trying to put the [contract] conversation to bed just by saying ... we can worry about it at the end of the year. I think that's what's in the best interest of the team. It's what's in my best interest. It's in the best interest of everybody," said Brees, who has also insisted many times that it wouldn't change his mindset if the team used a high draft pick on a quarterback.
However, when Brees was asked whether he would draft a quarterback if he were the general manager of a team with a veteran starter like himself, he said, "The flip side is if I'm gonna start and that quarterback sits, well that's not helping our team right now [to draft a QB]. So I want somebody that's gonna help our team right now. That's the only difference."
"Listen, when I leave here I want this organization to be successful, whenever that is. So I want them to be prepared for that. They need to be thinking about that. But I don't want to make it seem like this is my farewell tour. That's not the way I view it. I'm just trying to stress the sense of urgency here," said Brees, who was speaking at a community event in New Orleans, in which he joined Habitat for Humanity and Marriott to build a home for a local family.
"We're so focused on this year, just being in the moment, not thinking about anything beyond this and taking every other year as it Michael Griffin Youth Jersey comes. But also we're building something here -- we are building something. I feel like we have a window of opportunity."
Brees reiterated that he believes he is capable of playing until he is 45 years old -- insisting that he was the first one to make that claim before it became a popular topic recently with Tom Brady. (Both quarterbacks have made similar comments for the past several years, though Brees did talk at length about it in the summer of 2014.)
"For the record, I was the first to say that I could play till I was 45, and that was three years ago prior to training camp. Am I right?" Brees said. "I said it just to make the point that I feel great and I love my routine, and every offseason I evaluate where I'm at, I assess what I need to do to get better, the areas I think I can tweak, things I might want to experiment with. There's more and more information we're able to get as far as diet and nutrition and training habits, recovery, all those things. ... And I feel like I can play till 45 if I wanted to do that.
"Now I want to go out on my terms. I might play till I'm 45, but I'm not gonna sit here and sell you something that I don't know to be the case. I just want to play at a high level. I want to help us win a championship.'
Brees also put on his GM hat when he was asked tohttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-brandon-fusco-jersey-c-2_34.html assess the Saints' trade of receiver Brandin Cooks, who had more than 1,100 receiving yards in each of the past two years.
Brees said he "hates to lose" guys like Cooks and that, "I love Brandin." But he also said he understands the reasoning behind moves like that and the 2015 trade of Jimmy Graham, as the Saints feel like they can use assets to help the defense and offensive line.
"I was aware that there were offers out there for [Cooks], and that that was a possibility," Brees said. "There's a value that's given to a player based on how the rest of the league views you, and if all of a sudden that value gets to a [certain] point ... well, then moves are made.
"Going back to the Jimmy Graham trade, I hate to http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-jack-tatum-jersey-c-2_38.html lose Jimmy, but what did we get out of that? Well, we got Max Unger, and I love Max Unger, and I think he's going to be a mainstay on our offensive line and a leader for that group for a long time, and [we got] a first-round pick out of that deal.
"So while I'd love to keep all of my toys, all of my guys, I also understand that this is the nature of the business and how you finagle things to go out and acquire more talent."

Deion Sanders recalls the time he savagely snubbed the Giants at the 1989 combine
Has there ever been an athleteCarlos Hyde Authentic Jersey more confident than Deion Sanders? That was a rhetorical question. The answer is obviously no. The dude's nickname was “prime time,” which remains the coolest nickname in sports history.
Anyway, here's how confident a 22-year-old Sanders was: He told the New York Giants, who owned a top-10 pick in the 1989 http://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-lorenzo-alexander-jersey-c-1_31.html NFL draft, that he didn't have time for their games during a pre-draft meeting at the NFL combine.
We'll let Deion tell the story…
Sanders was correct. The Atlanta Falcons took him with the fifth-overall pick, so taking that test would have been a complete waste a time. But who knows? Maybe the Giants are so impressed with the results, they trade up and take himhttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-peyton-manning-jersey-c-1_3.html with a higher pick. New York did end up winning a Super Bowl two years later, so maybe Sanders is the one who missed out here.

Nick O'Leary creates Canberra wine for Canberra Day
It's Canberra's birthday this week so Brice Butler Womens Jersey what better way to celebrate than with a wine of its own.
Winemaker Nick O'Leary and Local Liquor have teamed up to create Canberra its own wine - a shiraz.
"Local Liquor approached me to make a shiraz for them and I sourced the shiraz from local growers that I've been working with for the last 10 years tohttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-geoff-swaim-jersey-c-2_66.html make them the wine," O'Leary said.
"It's typical of the Canberra region, it's medium-bodied, it's very peppery and spicy and it's pretty much the quality that can be drunk now or cellared."
They put it to the public to name the drop, asking, "If Canberra was a bottle of wine, what would you call it?".
The winning name is Walt 'n' Marion, a nod to the city's designers Walter Burley Griffin and wife Marion Mahoney Griffin, and the winning entry came from local Bernie Yates.
Walt 'n' Marion is available to buy from http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-tj-carrie-jersey-c-2_48.html all Local Liquor stores across the ACT and New South Wales - but there's only 6000 bottles so get in quick.

Here's Dak Prescott's reaction after Tony Romo announces his decision to retire
After Tony Romo made the decision to retire and join CBS on Tuesday , one of his biggest fans reached out on social media. Of course, that Marcus Gilbert Womens Jersey fan just also happens to be the player who took his job in Dallas: Dak Prescott.
Prescott, who grew up a Cowboys fan, was one of the first players to send a message to Romo on social media. In a picture posted to Instagram, Prescott thanked Romo for helping him through his rookie year.
“From a fan of yours to being your teammate: Thank you for the advice on and off the field to making plays that I'll never forget!” Prescott wrote on Instagram.
The relationship between Prescott and Romo actually got off to a slightly awkward start in April. After Prescott was drafted by the Cowboys, a few of his tweets surfaced from 2012 where Prescott was doing some Romo bashing .
“I was a frustrated fan at the time,” Prescott said. “I'm sure you can go back and look at fans of Mississippi State and they may have said something similar at one point or another, so I was just being a fan. And now he's my teammate Johnny Unitas Authentic Jersey and I'm behind him 100 percent.”
Clearly, the two sides were able to work through the Twitter incident to become close friends.
As for other Cowboys players who thanked Romo on Tuesday, the list also includes Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. In a post to Instagram, Elliott thanked Romo for taking him under his wing.
“Thanks for all the mentorship, camaraderie, and a new friendship,” Elliott wrote on Instagram. “Every since I stepped and Dallas you took me under your wing and made it your job to give me a better understanding of this game to make sure I continue to maximize my potential. Appreciate you, brother.”
Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams got in thehttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-craig-mager-jersey-c-1_10.html Romo action by tweeting out a goat emoji.
Although the three players above sent heartfelt messages to Romo, it sounds like linebacker Damien Wilson might actually be the teammate who's most disappointed to see Romo go.
Romo also received some heavy praise from Jerry Jones. In a statement, the Cowboys owner called Romo one of the “greatest players” in team history.
“Tony has been a wonderful representative of the Cowboys organization for 14 years, and he left everything he had on the field,” Jones said. “He will leave us with many great memories and a legacy of being, truly, one of the greatest players in Cowboys history. We are thrilled for him and his family that he will be able to continue working as a professional in the game he so dearly loves.”
That's not really a statement that anyone can argue. Although Romo wasn't able to win a Super Bowl in Dallas, he is retiring as the franchise leader in http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-buffalo-bills-c-1_756.html passing yards and touchdown passes. The newly retired quarterback also has the fourth-highest QB rating of any player in NFL history who's thrown at least 1,000 passes.

Raiders' Seth Roberts on Cordarrelle Patterson addition: ‘It's another weapon'
MESA, Ariz. — Seth Roberts is happy Blair Walsh Womens Jersey and ready to welcome another member to the wide receiver room after the Raiders signed the speedy Cordarrelle Patterson on Monday.
“I like it,” Roberts said Tuesday after throwing out the first pitch at an A's spring training game. “It's another weapon. I remember two years ago (when) he came to the Black Hole.”
That appearance in the Black Hole came in Week 10 of the 2015 season. The Raiders were flirting with contending for a wild-card spot, but Joe Berger Authentic Jersey dropped a tough 38-35 game in Pittsburgh the week before.
Andre Holmes caught a third-quarter touchdown from Derek Carr to give the Raiders a 14-13 lead over the Minnesota Vikings, but before they could even enjoy it, Patterson raced 93 yards for a kick return touchdown. Adrian Peterson later added an 80-yard touchdown run as the Vikings won 30-14 to drop Oakland to 4-5.
Now the Raiders are hoping Patterson can make game-changing plays like that for them both in the return game and at receiver, where he figureshttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-chaz-green-jersey-c-2_32.html to battle with Roberts for the No. 3 job.
Roberts, who is spending his off-season in Arizona training and rehabbing, said he likes the size the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Patterson will bring to the depth chart along with his electric speed and expects that wide receiver group that's headlined by Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree to be even better now.
“Super dangerous,” he said. “I'm looking forward to it. I think all the pieces of the puzzle are going to come together and we're going to make it happen.”
As for how they will all come together under http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-jeff-heath-jersey-c-2_24.html new offensive coordinator Todd Downing, Roberts added: “All I've got to say is you've got to trust the process. He's going to be great. I believe.”

49ers' best draft fits: nose tackle
This item is part of a series onJoe Montana Womens Jersey the positions the 49ers will look to fill in the upcoming draft and the players that are the best fits at those spots. Today's position:
Nose tackle or 1 technique
Description: This player can lineup directly across from the center or "tilted" off the center to the tight-end side of the field. The player has to be big and strong, but perhaps not as big as the Vince Wilfork archetype at the position. The Seahawks, for example, have gotten away with having lesser-known players at this position while saving their star power for other spots in the defense. The nose tackle has to be able to hold his Sammy Watkins Authentic Jersey ground on double teams, especially against the run. The player likely will come off the field on obvious passing downs, meaning that the 49ers probably won't use a high pick on the position.
Who's there now: The 49ers outbid three other teams to land 310-pound free agent Earl Mitchell, who is the presumed frontrunner at this spot. Mitchell never has played in this specific defense, though he is familiar to defensive coordinator Robert Saleh and defensive line coach Jeff Zgonina from their time with the Texans. Quinton Dialhttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-steve-atwater-jersey-c-1_21.html probably would rather play one of the other defensive line spots, but he is an option here having played nose tackle in the past. So are Mike Purcell and perhaps Chris Jones. The 49ers' terrible 2016 defense improved a bit when Glenn Dorsey returned to the lineup as nose tackle: Dorsey remains a free agent and likely will not sign with another team until at least after the draft.
Need level: 4.3
Perfect fit: Eddie Vanderdoes, UCLA. Vanderdoes is very powerful and, as he's dropped weight in recent months, has regained the athleticism he lost http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-daryl-johnston-jersey-c-2_52.html when a 2015 knee injury caused him to get as high as 345 pounds. Others: Dalvin Tomlinson, Alabama; Larry Ogunjobi, UNC-Charlotte; Elijah Qualls, Washington.

ROBERT WOODS, RAMS REPORTEDLY AGREE ON 5-YEAR, $39 MILLION CONTRACT
Veteran wide receiver Robert WoodsJustin Durant Womens Jersey reportedly will sign with the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
The deal is expected to be for five years and $39 million, with $15 million guaranteed.
Woods, 24, has spent his entire four-year career with the Buffalo Bills, catching 203 passes for 2,451 yards and 12 touchdowns. While he's never accumulated 700 receiving yards or more than five touchdowns in a season, he's been a reliableSeth Roberts Womens Jersey option for the Bills during his time with the team.
Woods won't necessarily be the top option for the Rams, but at the worst he'll be a solid No. 2 or No. 3 receiver. While he doesn't excel in any one facet of the passing game, he's a solid route-runner and an excellent blocker who should be a nice addition to the team.
Woods doesn't have game-breaking speed or spectacular, acrobatic catches, but he does the little things well at the position and is a capable http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-donald-penn-jersey-c-2_6.html possession receiver.
For the Rams, utilizing him in that role as a complement to Brian Quick and Tavon Austin—along with any wideouts the team potentially adds in the NFL draft— should benefit young quarterback Jared Goff. While the Rams still need to improve their weapons in the passing game, adding a player like Woods should help takehttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-tim-lelito-jersey-c-1_45.html some of the pressure off of running back Todd Gurley.
With a new coaching staff in place and now an upgrade at wide receiver, the Rams should have a different look on offense in 2017.

Mel Kiper feels Jaylon Smith kept Cowboys' 2016 draft from perfection
Earlier this year ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Sammie Coates Womens Jersey had his annual redraft and selected where players would go after their performance in their first NFL season. He has since revisited it and evaluated each team's collection of draft picks from the 2016 Draft. Immediately following the draft, Kiper gave the Cowboys a C. Following the past season that grade has been since changed to an A-.
Kiper offered a bit of insight as to why the http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-robert-golden-jersey-c-2_68.html Cowboys didn't get the full A . . . second-round pick Jaylon Smith. Smith carries the keys to a lot of future success for Dallas if he becomes the player many thought he was destined to be prior to an unfortunate knee injury in his last collegiate game.
After an surprise 13-3 season the future of the Cowboys is generally regarded as positive. With a young and energetic new quarterback and running back, the Cowboys look poised to be in the mix for years to come. It wasn't by luck. It stemshttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-4-adam-vinatieri-jersey-c-1_21.html from calculated and through research, quality coaching and the will to improve from top to bottom.
With the 2017 NFL draft later this month, Dallas will look to replicate its recent success drafting.

Raiders: Making A Case For Budda Baker 24th Overall
It's not often that a team with a Pro Bowl safety would consider drafting another player in the first round to replace him. But inDwight Lowery Womens Jersey the case of the Oakland Raiders, they may do just that with 33-year-old Reggie Nelson.
The 2017 NFL Draft class features a solid secondary group, with plenty of exceptional safeties. Here is a case for the Raiders drafting former Washington Huskies safety Budda Baker with the no. 24 pick.
The two-time All-Pac-12 safety (2015 and 2016) is a ballhawk and a bruiser all-in-one. Think Nelson, with better angles and vision.
Baker possesses exceptional speed (4.45 second 40-yard dash) and footwork that allow him to get in the right position to make a play. In terms of Buffalo-Bills Womens Jersey coming downhill, Baker's ferociousness mirrors young Raiders safety Karl Joseph.
At 5'10”, Baker's height is reminiscent of Joseph physically as well. But big things often come in small packages, and like Karl, Budda packs quite a punch.
Eventually, the Raiders will be forced to move on from Nelson — albeit a release, trade (unlikely) or retirement. Even a year under Nelson's tutelage would prove worthy for Baker, and Oakland can experiment with defensive packages to utilize Baker's strengths.
Baker is effective while blitzing, which is a specialty of new defensive assistant John Pagano.
In terms of pure excitement, Baker and Joseph as the last line of defense would surely lead to plenty of highlight-worthy plays.
Similar to Nelson, Baker possesses the bone-shatteringhttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-shaun-hill-jersey-c-2_53.html hitting ability and he has the reliable hands needed to create turnovers. But unlike Nelson, Baker is adept at tackling in open-field.
However, Baker has a tendency to go solely for the big hits, which he won't be able to always do against big-bodied receivers in the NFL. Improving on fundamental, wrap-up tackling is something he'll need to work on.
2016 proved to be an issue in terms ofhttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-customized-jersey-c-2_57.html secondary depth, with Joseph and fellow safety Keith McGill battling injury. Baker could come in and contribute from day one, setting up the Raiders at the safety position for years to come.

Jack Del Rio predicts leap year for Karl Joseph in 2017
Jack Del Rio is high on his Khalil Mack Jersey team's first-round draft pick from last year.
While speaking at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix this week, the Oakland Raiders head coach predicted that second-year safety Karl Joseph will enjoy a leap year in 2017.
The offseason is in full swing for the Oakland Raiders. Want the latest signings sent straight to your inbox? – Sign up for our FREE Raiders newsletter now!
"I think Karl's going to take a big step forward this year as a player, and his development," Del Rio said, per the Raiders' official website. "Just with comfort and understanding what's expected of him, coming in and being healthy, havingPaul Kruger Authentic Jersey a full offseason of work. I just feel like a confident Karl Joseph is going to be a much more impactful guy."
Joseph, the 14th-overall pick in last year's draft, tore his ACL during his senior season at West Virginia and was brought along slowly in training camp and the preseason. He did not play any defensive snaps in the first two games of the regular season.
When Joseph was inserted into the starting lineup alongside veteran safety Reggie Nelson in Week 3, his impact was immediate. He racked up 60 tackles (44 solo), six defended passes, an interception and a fumble recovery before http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-lynn-swann-jersey-c-2_31.html injuring his toe and missing the last four games of the regular season.
Although he only saw defensive snaps in 10 games last season, Joseph made the All-Rookie team selected by the Pro Football Writers of America after the 2016 season.
The Raiders need Joseph to have a huge season in 2017. Oakland's defense ranked 26th in the NFL last season and struggles in the secondary were largely to blame. The unit allowed 61 pass plays of 20-plus yards and 16 pass plays http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-jesse-james-jersey-c-2_24.html of 40-plus yards (both league highs).
A breakout year for Joseph would help the Raiders improve on defense overall.

Terron Armstead restructures contract
The Saints have a bit more cap space to play with this year.
Field Yates of ESPN.com Scott Tolzien Womens Jersey reports that left tackle Terron Armstead has agreed to restructure his deal with the team. Armstead's $5 million roster bonus has been converted into a signing bonus to spread the cap hit out over a deal that runs through the 2021 season.
The immediate impact of the move is that the Saints will have $4 million in cap space available this offseason that wasn't previously at their disposal.
Any new money added to the Saints' coffershttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-denzel-perryman-jersey-c-1_15.html leads to thoughts that they could apply that to their pursuit of Patriots cornerback and restricted free agent Malcolm Butler. The offer sheet for Butler is only part of the equation, of course, as the Patriots have the right to match and the Saints would have to be OK with giving up the 11th overall pick in the draft if New England doesn't match.
There's also a chance the two sides http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-jacksonville-jaguars-c-1_88.html could work out a deal for different compensation, although that can't happen unless Butler signs his restricted free agent tender or another deal with the Patriots.

Joey Porter will be honored at the Mel Blount All-Star Celebrity Roast
When Mel Blount turned 50, he Emmanuel Lamur Womens Jersey wanted to celebrate with his family, friends, and former teammates. But he also wanted to do something that would help others at the same time. So with that, the Mel Blount All-Star Celebrity Roast was born, and it continues to this day.

2016 Player Exit Meetings – CB Justin Gilbert
The Pittsburgh Steelers find that their 2016 seasonPaxton Lynch Youth Jersey ended a bit prematurely, and are undergoing the exit meeting process a couple weeks sooner than they would have liked. Never the less, what must be done must be done, and we are now at the time of the year where we close the book on one season and look ahead to the next.
While we might not know all the details about what goes on between Head Coach Mike Tomlin and his players during these exit meetings, we do know how we would conduct those meetings if they were let up to us. So here are the Depot's exit meetings for the Steelers' roster following the 2016 season.
I'm quickly moving on to Justin Gilbert now because frankly I'm at a very real risk of simply forgetting that he was a part of the Steelers in 2016, considering Byron Jones Youth Jersey that he only spent about five or six months in total with the organization from the time that he was acquired via trade to the time that he was released.
The Steelers acquired Gilbert from the Browns via trade in early September just before the start of the regular season, giving up a sixth-round draft pick in the 2018 NFL Draft in order to claim him. They also took on his former first-round pick salary, which was a commitment that they were willing to take on in order to see what a player they once coveted coming out of college would look in their uniform.
As should not be surprising, the cornerback received limited playing time when considering the fact that he only became a part of the team in September. He did receive a handful of snaps against the Chiefs early in the season as he washttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-jack-crawford-jersey-c-2_65.html used in a dime package to coverage their tight end.
He only received playing time on defense in other games once or twice after that, if I recall correctly, and with again a very limited role. When he was dealing with an injury, the team even gave his role away to Al-Hajj Shabazz.
Gilbert returned three kicks during the regular season for 69 yards, averaging 23 yards per return with a long of 32 yards. In the previous season with the Browns, he averaged over 28 yards per kick return on 12 kicks.
In all, he registered three tackles on the season, all of them coming in Week 12 or beyond, and presumably all of them serving in a special teams capacity. He was active for two of the team's three playoff games, but did not record a statistic.
Facing the prospect of committing to another significant salary, the Steelers released Gilbert in early February. There was confusion at the time as to whether or not his salary was guaranteed, but that proved not to be the case. Gilberthttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-shilique-calhoun-jersey-c-2_19.html currently remains unsigned and will likely stay that way until after the draft. A reunion with Pittsburgh is not impossible, but it can probably be considered unlikely at this point.

Why CBS handed Tony Romo the keys to the penthouse so quickly
At long last, Tony Romo, who played Mike Mitchell Womens Jersey small-college football at Eastern Illinois before joining the Cowboys as a free agent, has gotten pick-of-the-litter treatment.
He's been signed to be top gun at CBS.
But that may say more about the network's predicament than its belief in Romo as an immediate elixir to Phil Simms.
The ex-Cowboys quarterback said via conference call Tuesday that his new employer never talked to him about anything but filling the network's lead NFL analyst chair that used to belong to Simms. Romo acknowledged that he talked to other networks about possible employment, but you can be sure only CBS broached the lead analystHeath Miller Womens Jersey position on its depth chart.
Fox isn't replacing Troy Aikman anytime soon. NBC isn't replacing Cris Collinsworth, and ESPN isn't bringing in a novice to replace Jon Gruden.
Note: Neither Aikman, nor Collinsworth nor Gruden began his broadcast career working solo at the top of the heap.
To his credit, Romo acknowledged that he has a lot of work to do to live up to his new billing while working alongside play-by-play voice Jim Nantz.
Let's face it: CBS handed Romo the keys to the penthouse because it had tired of Simms, just as he sounded tired of calling games. The constant criticism that accompanied his work could not have gone unnoticed.
None of the broadcast pros whom I talked to about Romo as a No. 1 thought it wise to bring him or anyone in as a rookie No. 1. But CBS Sports boss Sean McManus, in the conference call, sounded relatively unconcerned about going with a rookie at such a high-profile job. And then McManus, whose network once employed John Madden, acknowledged that CBS was taking "a manageable risk."
Romo may someday prove to be the second coming of Madden, but for now the network will settle for an upgrade over Simms.
Talking on TV isn't the same sitting in front of a lockerhttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-10-donte-moncrief-jersey-c-1_3.html and answering questions. All of the X's-and-O's knowledge in the world won't help if Romo doesn't learn to talk in spurts while also managing to be entertaining.
Just a reminder: Hall of Fame quarterbacks Johnny Unitas and Bart Starr were lousy NFL game analysts at CBS. Joe Montana couldn't be saved by four Super Bowl rings when he signed on for studio duty at NBC.
To borrow a phrase, becoming a top-notch NFL game analyst is "a process." It might have been more humane for all concerned for Romo to start in a lower-profile job. Studio analyst comes to mind.
Then again, who expected rookie Dak Prescott to step into his new role so smoothly last season?
Next season's Super Bowl belongs to NBC. It has to be CBS' most fervent hope that Romo reaches top speed when 2019's Super Bowl LIII lands on its plate.
Romo said his situation reminds him of his rookie season with the Cowboys when he "didn't know anything" about the job.
With millions of viewers hanging on hishttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-drew-kaser-jersey-c-1_21.html every word on Thursday nights and Sunday afternoons next season, he'd better be a quick study and show steady progress.

Linebacker Gerald Hodges interested in returning to Vikings
Could linebacker Gerald Hodges return to the Vikings?
The free agent wrote in a text Deion Sanders Womens Jersey message to the Pioneer Press on Monday he has interest in going back to the team that traded him to San Francisco in October 2015.
“Yes,” Hodges wrote. “Definitely wouldn't mind playing for them! Great organization!!”
It's unclear what the Vikings' interest level is in bringing back Hodges, and he did not comment on whether his representatives have heard from them.
This much is sure: Minnesota could use some help at linebacker following the retirement of Chad Greenway, a starter on the outside, and departure of reserve Audie Cole, who signed as a free agent with Jacksonville. Hodges retweeted a Greenway tweet from the day he was traded.
Greenway's Oct. 6, 2015 tweet read, “Surprised wouldDuke Williams Authentic Jersey be an understatement. I guess good luck (Hodges), but you will be missed.” In the retweet, Hodges wrote, “Always been respected.”
Hodges began 2015 as Minnesota's starter at middle linebacker before being traded four games into the season to the 49ers for a sixth-round draft pick and center Nick Easton. The move cleared the way for then-rookie Eric Kendricks to start in the middle, and he led the team in tackles that season.
Kendricks remains a starter for the Vikings, along with outside linebacker Anthony Barr. Hodges was been an outside linebacker before being moved in 2015 by the Vikings to the middle. He started the final four games of 2014 on the outside in place of an injured Barr.
Hodges had the best season of his career in 2016. He started 12 of the 15 games he played for the 49ers and had 80 tackles, including three sacks.
Hodges, 26, was taken in the fourth round of the http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-emmanuel-sanders-jersey-c-1_8.html 2013 draft by Minnesota and started 10 of the 29 games he played. Since free agency began March 9, Hodges has visited one team, the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Vikings announced two number changes for 2017. Guard Alex Boone switches from No. 76 to 75 and cornerback Jabari Price from No. 25 to 24. Boone had worn No. 75 for San Francisco from 2010-15 but Matt Kalil had that number for the Vikings before signing as a free agent with Carolina. Price takes over the numberhttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-deion-sanders-jersey-c-2_46.html cornerback Captain Munnerlyn had been wearing before he also joined the Panthers, and recently signed running back Latavius Murray gets No. 25.

Why Congressional leaders can't lead anymore: John Phillips
When he wanted to motivate members of Ryan Harris Authentic Jersey Congress to vote his way, former President Lyndon Baines Johnson lived by the adage, “Don't tell a man to go to hell unless you can send him there.”
Whether you're talking about Johnson when he was Senate majority leader or president of the United States, he had more power to send people to hell than Saint Peter. Every once in a while, he'd have to banish someone to the fiery pits, but more often than not, the pressure worked and votes broke his way.
But that was back in the day when congressional leadership had genuine power over their members. If congressional leaders needed a member's vote, they had sweeteners to make it a deal that was impossible to refuse — but if a member still didn't come around, there were a million different ways they could make life very difficult on that wayward legislator.
Well, times have changed and congressionalDeangelo Williams Authentic Jersey leadership doesn't have the pull with their caucus that they once did. To put it simply, a combination of modern technology, a shift in how campaigns are funded and good-government reforms have taken away most of leadership's carrots and sticks.
This new reality was on full display during the unsuccessful push for the American Health Care Act in the House of Representatives.
Former Congressman Trey Radel, author of the book “Democrazy: A True Story of Weird Politics and Fancy Finger Food,” told me this fact of life will cause Speaker Paul Ryan fits in perpetuity.
“The carrots used to be earmarks. The Republicans, when they swept the House in 2010, got rid of earmarks. Earmarks used to be there to make deals. Earmarks were how congressmen were able to take money and appropriate it within their own district. They can't do that now, so they can't strike any deals,” Radel said.
The libertarian-leaning Republican was quick to point out that while “it's true that earmarks were once abused ... the problem is that you've got no more carrots now.”
Radel also believes that any “threats” coming from the speaker's office are merely hollow. “[T]he stick approach used to be: Leadership would tell you, ‘We aren't gonna raise money for you anymore.' These days, because of multiple factors, including social media and outside groups like 501(c)(4)s, like the Club for Growth and Heritage (Action), they can come in and raise you boatloads of cash and they love it when you give the middle finger to your own party's leadership.”
Just before Speaker Ryan canceled the scheduledhttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-23-frank-gore-jersey-c-1_12.html House vote on the American Health Care Act, The Washington Post estimated as many as 32 Republicans — and all of the Democrats — were prepared to vote no, in defiance of his pleas.
The former legislator feels that the winds of change sweeping through Congress are the direct result of new technology: “[T]he internet wrecked so many different business models; the internet has been able to directly affect politics in terms of the carrot and stick.”
He also predicts we could see more big votes suffer the same fate
If Radel is correct, that spells big trouble for upcoming legislation dealing with tax reform, infrastructure spending and raising the debt ceiling.
Ryan's legacy rests on pushing these legislative packages through the Congress. If his carrots and sticks aren't producing the needed votes, he will need to get creative and find new tools.
My advice to Paul Ryan: Start gardening!
John Phillips is a CNN political http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-jeremiah-attaochu-jersey-c-1_27.html commentator and can be heard weekdays at 3 p.m. on “The Drive Home with Jillian Barberie and John Phillips” on KABC/AM 790.

Cowboys might target in first round
on Machota, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered questions about the team in a Chicago-Bears Authentic Jersey live chat Friday. Here are some highlights.
Who will be remembered as the greatest Cowboy of this generation -- Romo or Witten?
Jon Machota: Jason Witten. He's a 10-time Pro Bowler who never misses games and is one of the best tight ends to ever play. Romo has said he thinks Witten might be the greatest Cowboy of all-time. I wouldn't necessarily go that far but he's near the top of the list. I believe Romo will be remembered fondly and both will eventually be in the Ring of Honor, but Witten will also be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
If you had to guess, will there be any draft day trades for the Cowboys?
Jon Machota: My guess is there will be at least one. The Cowboys have been known for their wheeling and dealing during the draft. In recent years they've moved up to get Morris Claiborne and DeMarcus Lawrence and moved back to gain an extra pick before drafting Travis Frederick. Jerry Jones recently said sitting at the 28th spot in the first round "sets up for a little potential trade action to try to gain some value or try to hit an opportunity." The Cowboys currently have seven picks. I believe they'll try to acquire an extra one somehow. I wouldn't be surprised if they make eight selections when everything is said and done.
Is the Richard Sherman speculation a waste of time for Cowboys fans?
Jon Machota: I wouldn't call it a waste of Terence Newman Womens Jersey time. Every team should be interested in Richard Sherman if the price is right. He's arguably the best CB in the game. He'd instantly upgrade the Cowboys' defense. But what's the price? I wouldn't be interested in parting with multiple early-round picks. Many believe CB is the deepest position in this class. I think the Cowboys would prefer drafting a couple defensive backs from this class instead of making the significant investment in a 29-year-old Sherman.
Of the Cowboys pre-draft visitors, which do you think are the best fits with Cowboys?
Jon Machota: Kevin King interests me the most of the CBs. If the Cowboys played today, their nickel package would likely be Orlando Scandrick, Anthony Brown and Nolan Carroll. Carroll is the tallest of the group at 6-1. King is 6-3, 200 pounds. Very comparable to Richard Sherman. The receivers keep getting bigger and bigger in the NFL. I like the idea of having a CB with King's size to matchup with them, especially in the redzone. Of the pass rushers, probably T.J. Watt. Being related to a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year pass rusher should intrigue everyone. Some say T.J. is a better fit in a 3-4 as an outside linebacker. Others say he can play DE in a 4-3 scheme. If they believe he can be a 4-3 end, he'd interest me greatly.
Who is the top corner, safety and defensive lineman forhttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-customized-jersey-c-2_57.html the Cowboys to target in the first round?
Jon Machota: Of the corners that could be there at 28, I like Kevin King the most. I wouldn't take any of the safeties that will likely be there at 28. Of the defensive linemen: Taco Charlton and Charles Harris would probably top my list.
What was Romo like in the locker room?
Jon Machota: He wasn't in there much during media availability. Some guys have more small talk with reporters than others. There wasn't much of that with him. I always felt like he worked hard at not giving much away. He did his weekly interview and often took part in the conference call with opposing reporters. On days he wasn'thttp://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-lesean-mccoy-jersey-c-1_30.html scheduled to talk, he was rarely around. Now, the locker room availability represents a small portion of the day. Just because some guys aren't in there much during that time doesn't mean they aren't in the locker room much when reporters are not around.

Three things to know about Menelik Watson
Watson's UK background means he's heavily invested in the other football. And while his NFL allegiances have changed, his Premier Karl Joseph Youth Jersey League ties remain as strong as ever.
“Everybody who knows me knows it's Manchester City. That's my boys. I've been a ‘Blue' since I can remember. They're doing pretty well. Sitting in the top four, trying to make the Champions League. I don't think we'll win the league this year, but we're doing pretty well. I got a chance to check out some games when I was home. That is always exciting.”
His time playing soccer as a kid led directly to his transition across the pond later in life, he said.
“It helped a lot,” Watson said. “I did a lot of things growing up as a kid. I was very active. Soccer, basketball, it just helped a lot. As a kid, I was a visual learner. I used to watch a lot of footwork. If someone was teaching me something, the first thing I do is watch the feet. Now when you go into football and I step onto the field, I'm an offensive lineman, a position that is unique in the technique that is not mimickedSam Mills Youth Jersey in anyway in any other sport.
“Which 300-pound man has to backpedal and stop another 300-pound man coming full speed? You've got to trust your feet. It's a big thing. When I was learning the sport, I was just observing the technique to pick it up quicker. Playing offensive line is a lot easier to juggling a soccer ball. It helped tremendously just building me as an athlete.”
If not for former Chicago Bear Kyle Long, Watson may never have played professional football. Back when Watson was first learning the game, Long convinced him to go to Saddleback College. Watson had previously been at Marist College to play basketball, but he was ultimately too short to play power forward. When he showed up at Saddleback, Long took him under his wing. And for Watson, who had to learn how to put on a girdle and other parts of the uniform for the first time, Long was also instrumental in decidinghttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-mike-wagner-jersey-c-2_47.html which position he'd ultimately play.
After a day of struggling at defensive pursuit drills, Watson was stopped by Long as the two walked off the field.
“He was the one who convinced me to go there,” Watson said, “and I remember walking off the first day, he was like, ‘Come on offense tomorrow; it's easier.' I was like, ‘All right.' So I went to the head coach and said, ‘Hey, coach, can I try offense?' And he was like, ‘Yeah, sure.' So I went over there.”
As simple as that.
As for Long's advice to Watson about being an offensive lineman?
“The quarterback's the basket,” Long told Watson. “Don't let them get to the basket.”
In Oakland, Watson had the nickname “Lennox” after three-time world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis.
Watson couldn't help but laugh when asked about the nickname at his media availability on Friday.
“When you throw your hands a lot, they want to compare http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-dan-mccullers-jersey-c-2_67.html
you to somebody. I think I was a bit more fluid than Lennox [Lewis] though. I think I got a bit more of the jab on me.”

Why Marcus Martin, new Browns center and Los Angeles native
'I feel like that's just our city thatMario Edwards Jr Womens Jersey he brings to Cleveland ... That fire, that hunger, and that burn'
Marcus Martin knows a thing or two about Browns coach Hue Jackson.
“I'm a Los Angeles guy,” the former 49ers center said, cracking a smile. “And so is Hue Jackson.”
Indeed, Martin and Jackson went to rival high schools (Crenshaw and Dorsey, respectively) that are separated by less than three miles.
So when Martin, whom Cleveland claimed off waivers late last week, arrived at the team's facility, he knew what he was getting into.
“You can see it, it's in him,” Martin said. “I feel like Lester Hayes Authentic Jersey that's just our city that he brings to Cleveland. That's the LA he brings to Cleveland, you know? That fire, that hunger, and that burn.”
Martin is one of several newcomers to join the roster, joining center JC Tretter, guard Kevin Zeitler and wide receivers Kenny Britt and James Wright, who was picked up Tuesday.
Martin, a third-round pick from USC who played with Browns quarterback Cody Kessler and tight end Randall Telfer, spent the previous three seasons in San Francisco.
Playing for three different coaching staffs, MArtin started 24 games in that span — including 14 in 2015 — but saw his playing time decrease before he was placed on injured reserve last year.
“The 49ers are a great organization they did a lot for me, I'm very thankful for the opportunity they provided. What I earned over the years was learn how to deal with hardship,” Martin said.
“I learned how to deal with adversity, I http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-sterling-moore-jersey-c-1_42.html learned how to deal with adaptation and learning to evolve because that's something that's serious … you're going to be put in different situations in your life that maybe you didn't expect to be in, but you have to optimize and make the most out of it.”
Martin, who enters a room that includes Zeitler, Tretter, veteran Joe Thomasand Joel Bitonio (who received a five-year extension last week), spoke of a “championship attitude” inside the team's building.
“You can see everybody is ready to turn this thing around. Wherever it was going, they're ready to turn it around and start heading in the right direction,” he said.
“You can see it just from the improvements that you've made with everything going on right now, you see it … everybody that I've talked to has reiterated that. ‘We want to win championships.' That's what we're here for, we're here to grind.”
It's an approach that starts with Jackson.
“He came from an area similar to mine. Andhttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-rod-woodson-jersey-c-2_63.html when you come from those type of environments,” Martin said, “it's either gonna make you or break you and it's obviously made coach Jackson.”

Buffalo Bills end the Dan Carpenter ‘Russian Roulette' kicking game
For Buffalo Bills' fans, watching Dan Eli Rogers Authentic Jersey Carpenter attempt extra points and field goals the past two years was like watching your roulette ball teeter between black or red. You never knew if the football would sail through the uprights. Many fans cursed at their flatscreens. Carpenter missed five extra points in 2016 and six the previous season. Not good enough for the Bills' administration. They cut Carpenter last week and signed former Seattle Seahawks kicker #Stephen Hauschka to a new $12.4 million deal this past Thursday.
Hauschka's reliable foot
Last year, Hauschka made 33 out of 37 field goals. ThatFrank Gore Kids Jersey is more than Carpenter. The former Buffalo kicker missed six field goals this past season. While they are equal in extra points missed in 2016, Hauschka only flubbed on four the year before. That is still an upgrade over the unsteady Carpenter. His inconsistency forced a few punts that Rex Ryan probably would have called for field goals if he had been more reliable.
Playoff experience
Stephen Hauschka has more post-season experience than Dan has had. The former Bills' kicker only had one playoff game when he was with the Miami Dolphins. Hauschka has also capitalized on field goals of 50 yards or more. With one Superhttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-hunter-henry-jersey-c-1_23.html Bowl win and two appearances under his belt, Hauschka is who you want on your team.
Nailing the kickoff
Hauschka was solid on kicking off last year. He was in the top 15 for touchbacks. Carpenter had some issues with kickoffs during the last half of the season. Hauschka had 54 touchbacks, while Carpenter only had 28. That is almost double for the new Bills' kicker and good stat for his future Buffalo career.
All weather guy
Hauschka has played in the cold and warm weather for teams such as the Vikings, Broncos, Atlanta, and Detroit. Kicking in different weather conditions, such as wind, rain, and snow is a definite plus in NFL games where 3 points often decide the winners. There are conspiracy theories that Scott Norwood's Super Bowl 25 wide http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-chicago-bears-c-1_851.html right attempt was due to a sudden gust of the wind from jets that flew over the field. Let's hope that Hauschka has better luck.

Rocky Mountain players could be targeted by the Broncos
The Denver Broncos are preparing for the 2017 NFL Draft, and readying their final draft board, hoping to scoop up the top talent. While John Chris Doleman Womens Jersey Elway and company will be looking all over the world of college football for top prospects, the Broncos also have a history of staying close to home.
In their franchise history, the Broncos have used over 20 different draft picks on schools from the Rocky Mountain region. The University of Colorado leads the way with 14 selections, but the Broncos have used draft picks on a number of different players from area schools.
Current Broncos Ty Sambrailo, Kapri Bibbs and Shaquil Barrett hail from Colorado State. Former players Ronnie Bradford, Matt Lepsis, and Alfred Williams all played their college ball in Boulder, for the University of Colorado. The University of Wyoming has provided solid contributors like Mitch Unrein and Patrick Chukwurah. Even the Air Force Academy, has sent a few players north to wear the orange and blue, such as Ben Garland and Steve Russ, who was selected by Denver in the seventh round of the 1995 NFL Draft, and played a few productive seasons.
The Broncos have 10 picks in this year's draft, and there are a few players from local schools that could find themselves on their draft board. Here are a few of the best possibilities.
The Broncos could be on the lookout for a wide receiver to fill out the depth chart, and Robinette could be a value in the later rounds. At six-foot-three and 220 pounds Robinette is a deep play threat, that averaged over 27 yards per catch, in 2016. In his Brandon Fusco Womens Jersey final season with the Falcons, Robinette caught 35 passes for 959 yards and six touchdowns. Playing in the Air Force option attack, he will need to grow as a route runner, but his ability to attack the football in the air, could make him a nice fit for a developmental role.
With a name like Steelhammer, how could he not be a ball-hawking safety, that can deliver a big hit? Yes, the Broncos are probably already set at the safety position, with Justin Simmons and Will Parks. Yet, we can't overlook Steelhammer, who was a three-year starter at the Academy, and has excellent football instincts. He is a bit undersized, but he more than makes up for it, by using his intelligence and solid tackling techniques. If nothing else, he may be able to fill a valuable role on special teams, and let's be honest, he might have the coolest name in the draft.
You can never have enough solid cornerbacks, and Awuzie could be available at a spot that would be risk free. He would fit the Broncos man to man scheme, and has explosive athletic ability. As a senior in Boulder, he notched 65 tackles, and defended 12 passes. He was less than impressive at the Senior Bowl, but that could help the Broncos grab him with a later pick. He does have NFL speed, and could only improve playing behind the talented trio of Chris Harris Jr, Aqib Talib and Bradley Roby.
A Parade All-American as a senior at Fountain Fort Carson High School in Colorado Springs, Davis elected to stay close to home for college. While in Fort Collins, he was tackling machine, making a number of those tackles in the opponent's backfield. In hishttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-tom-jackson-jersey-c-1_19.html final season with the Rams, he accounted for 110 total tackles, with 10.5 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles, and three sacks. He will need to get stronger to ward off NFL blockers, but scouts like his athleticism, and he could be a late round possibility.
Just a couple hours up I-25 in Laramie, Wyoming, Chase Roullier managed to put together a pretty solid career for the Cowboys. He has the versatility that NFL teams covet, as he has experience playing both guard and tackle, and he is a scrappy player that is gaining some popularity among NFL scouts. At 6-foot-4 and 312 pounds, he was voted first team all-conference in the Mountain West, while helping Wyoming go to their conference championship game. He doesn't have the arm length that some of the top prospects have, but that didn't stop him from being one of the of the strongest run blockers in the country. He is a sturdy anchor that stays on his blocks, and I think we can all agree the Broncos could use a few more of those on their offensive front.
He may not hear his name called during the draft, simply because of his size, but don't underestimate the ability of this talented runner. Yes, he stands just 5-foot-9 and weighs in under two hundred pounds, but Ekeler can compete for a roster spot in the NFL. Over the past four years at Western State in Gunnison he has brokenhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-matt-mcgloin-jersey-c-2_58.html nearly every record in the books while rushing for nearly 6,000 yards and 55 touchdowns. He was named to three different All-American teams, and even though he played at a small school, he could be a playmaker that the Broncos could definitely use.

WATCH: Offseason workout video of Cowboys' rising star Maliek Collins
Dallas Cowboys' defensive tackle Maliek Collins made quite an impression in 2016. Part of a dynamic rookie class, Collins registeredThomas Morstead Womens Jersey five sacks at the coveted three-technique position, moving veteran Tyrone Crawford out to strongside defensive end as DC Rod Marinelli attempted to get the best combination of linemen on the field. Collins sack total was second on the team, and he's thirsty for more. In this video, he shows the work he's doing this offseason to improve.
In the video, Collins works with NFL trainer Thurmond Moore at the Fisher Institute in Phoenix. He can be seen doing a variety of drills to improve http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-ryan-harris-jersey-c-2_26.html has hand technique, footwork and many other aspects in hope to improve on his first-year success. There's a certain segment when viewers can easily see Collins best attribute, his jump off the snap.
The 3-tech is the key position for Marinelli's scheme, as pressure up the middle is vital to forcing the opposing quarterback to shrink their throwing options. Collapsing the pocket is the quickest way to rattle a quarterback and it canhttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-jack-ham-jersey-c-2_54.html lead to them cutting the field in half while also giving the edge rushers time to beat the tackles and close in for their own sacks.

Kansas City Chiefs Rookie Review 2016: Chris Jones
Before the Kansas City Chiefs draft an Clayton Geathers Womens Jersey entire new draft class to analyze, let's take a look back at last year. The first Rookie Review is defensive lineman Chris Jones.
Fans of the Kansas City Chiefs waited and watched an entire first round go by in 2016 only to have their favorite team trade out of their original spot near the end of the broadcast. Instead of taking a player at No. 28, the San Francisco 49ers paid the price to jump back into the first round to select guard Joshua Garnett. In return, the Chiefs traded down 9 slots to No. 37 overall, a second round choice, and picked up the Niners choices in Jeremiah Attaochu Youth Jersey the fourth and sixth rounds. Thus, the Chiefs first pick in the draft ended up being a second rounder in defensive lineman Chris Jones from Mississippi State.
If there's a single move that should be analyzed to show just how incredible John Dorsey is at his job, it's the move to get Chris Jones. Forget the trade for a second and the selection itself was brilliant. Jones took a bit to find his rhythm at the pro level and earn his reps, given that he had a loaded defensive line in front of him, including Dontari Poe, Jaye Howard and Allen Bailey. Still by the season's second half, the Chiefs knew exactly what they had with Jones. Of course, it helped that Howard and Bailey were injured for the year, but Jones was already a known quantity by then, a dynamic rookie for whom the stat sheet doesn't begin to tell the story.
Along with players like Geno Atkins and Aaron Donald, Chris Jones looks like one of the NFL's elite interior players who can affect the pocket and get after the passer himself (or freeing up those around him). He should be evenhttp://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-kansas-city-chiefs-c-1_130.html better with a full offseason of rest and a year of experience under his belt, although he is no longer a secret to any defensive coordinator. Still, the Chiefs' signing of Bennie Logan to go with the aforementioned returnees from injury should equal a talented and hungry defensive line for 2017
Now, back to that trade. It's very, very possible that Jones would have been the pick at No. 28 overall as well as No. 37. Dorsey's willingness to trade back will cost him with Jones in particular, given that he won't have a fifth year team option on Jones like all first rounders come with. That said, he also picked up Parker Ehinger and D.J. White in the process. We'll get to both players in time with our Rookie Review series, buthttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-michael-griffin-jersey-c-2_55.html for now, we can say that Dorsey lost one year of financial security with Jones four years from now in exchange for a starting left guard and a potential late round gem at cornerback.

Broncos furious after Titans' hit on Harris: 'They're dirty'
NASHVILLE — This version of the Joe Staley Youth Jersey Broncos has lost nine games since Gary Kubiak arrived prior to the 2015 season. Never has their locker room been as spittin' mad as it was Sunday.
The match that lit their short fuse had little to do with Tennessee's 13-10 win at Nissan Stadium.
During the first half of an exceptionally physical game, Titans wide receiver Harry Douglas threw his body into the right knee of Broncos star cornerback Chris Harris Jr., who fell to the turf and was helped off the field before later returning to the game. The play was almost dead — and was run to the opposite side of the field — when Harris endured what he called “the dirtiest play I've ever seen in my life.” Harris left the Sylvester Williams Womens Jersey locker room and boarded the team bus without putting on his dress suit, saying he was “too sore” to get dressed again. Instead, he wore a hoodie, sweatpants and a look that would frighten an MMA fighter into submission.
“All their receivers are trash,” Harris told The Gazette. “That's why they come out here in a goal-line offense.”
Harris, who sustained a torn ACL in January 2014, said he didn't believe the injury is serious. That, along with Trevor Siemian's sharp performance, were about the only bright spots on a gloom-and-doomed Broncos Sunday.
"Cowardice," linebacker Shane Ray called the Douglas play.
On the snap after Douglas' hit on Harris, Broncoshttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-larry-allen-jersey-c-2_55.html cornerback Aqib Talib took matters into his own hands, shoving Douglas and igniting a fight that spilled onto the Tennessee sideline.
“I'm gonna beat his (butt)” upon their next encounter, Talib said afterward, adding he and Douglas share the same agent.
Harris said Douglas “better be fined” for the incident.
“I'm a tough player. I'm a gritty player,” Douglas told reporters in the Titans locker room, according to ESPN.com. “I'm not a dirty player, no matter what anybody says.”
“The No Fly Zone” did its part in a game that puts the Broncos on the brink of playoff extinction. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota completed six passes for 88 yards. Siemian was 35 of 51 for 334 yards and a touchdown.
There's an outside shot the Broncos and Titans could meet again, in the AFC playoffs, but the teams are not scheduled to play again next season.
“They were all doing dirty stuff. Their whole offensive line was dirty,” Denver lineman Derek Wolfe said. “I was getting grabbed by my (injured) elbow and http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-darren-mcfadden-jersey-c-2_7.html yanked by my elbow brace and pulled to the ground. That's obviously the team they are. They're dirty. We combatted that. If we have to have a bench-clearing brawl and we have to fight — if I have to give you my address and you come see me in the offseason — we will.”

How Penn State's Marcus Allen grew from rookie to grizzled vet, and what it means
It was the middle of October, 2014, whenLester Hayes Womens Jersey Marcus Allen went from former four-star recruit to starting Penn State safety.
He hasn't looked back since.
No. 2 in blue and white has played a lot of football for the Nittany Lions since he subbed in for Ryan Keiser, a victim of a freak practice accident, days before the Lions took on Ohio State in what would turn into an overtime thriller.
The true freshman has morphed his game since then plenty, but not enough to make him think he was or is ready for the NFL. So, after much thought, he and his family decided returning to school was best so that Allen, a product of Wise Matt Mcgloin Youth Jersey High in Maryland, could play one final season to try and help PSU go further than a Big Ten title while also improving his draft stock.
"I know that was the right decision," Allen said on Wednesday.
"I wanted to work on everything, to be honest. That's my tackling, my coverage, turnovers, everything. I definitely want to make way more plays."
Penn State will be greatly benefitted if Allen does just that, because believe it or not, he has yet to record his first interception despite starting in over 20 career games.
Of course, it must be noted that there have been many times between his first start and now that he's been asked to play the run more than the pass. His 22-tackle effort against Minnesota last season is one good example of that, but the position still needs to create more game-changing plays, which Allen is aware of.
"The secondary needs way more turnovers, we need to make a lot of plays, and that means we have to put in the work," he said.
He's led the charge this offseason, taking the role of unit leader and starting a group text message to ensure guys like Ayron Monroe, Nick Scott, Troy Apke, John Petrishen, and other safeties young and old who are fighting for the starting safety spot opposite him -- the one vacated by Malik Golden -- are taking the extra steps that are necessary to improve.
As for where his leadership traits come from, they were built on what he learned from the guys that helped him way back when, such as Golden, Adrian http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-vonn-bell-jersey-c-1_47.html Amos, Keiser, Jordan Lucas, and Trevor Williams.
"After every practice, we do extra work," Allen said. "Even when we're not practicing, come in; we have a group message, and I hit up all the safeties to tell them to come in and get some extra work."
It's not just the safeties Allen is taking under his wing, either; he's also helping out true freshman corner and January enrollee Lamont Wade.
"They're very sparky," Allen continued. "They really make a whole bunch of elusive plays, especially Lamont. Lamont is very explosive. He has that knack to him. He's going to be a really good player."
He hopes the whole group as a whole turns into really good players this fall. Penn State does, too.
"I think the whole defense, we try to pick up everyone as far as playbooks, knowing the plays; if they need any help, just try and be thathttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-senquez-golson-jersey-c-2_6.html big brother for them," Allen said.
"To be honest, I think we still have that chemistry. I really don't think we're missing anything at all."

Film Breakdown
Come November, the Dolphins will have a decision to make.
Depending on when the NFL schedules Miami's bye, T.J. McDonaldHeath Miller Kids Jersey will return from suspension in either Week 9 or 10.
When he does, the Dolphins will have three (or possibly four, depending on the draft) starting-caliber safeties.
One is Reshad Jones, who, assuming he is indeed fully recovered from the significant shoulder injury that spoiled his 2016 season, will be on the field every single play.
So that leaves 65 or so snaps per game to divvy up http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-32-tj-green-jersey-c-1_18.html between McDonald and Nate Allen, two new Dolphins signed in the past month.
So what's Matt Burke's plan? That needs to play out during the offseason and training camp. It's a safe bet that whoever practices better will play more.
Plus, if McDonald — who's suspended the season's first eight games for violating the league's substance abuse police — messes up again, the point will be moot. The Dolphins have a zero tolerance policy with him.
But for the sake of argument (it's April, the time for conjecture), let's posit that both players stay healthy and out of trouble.
If so, both players will bring their own strengths to the Kellen Clemens Kids Jersey defense, as these highlights, ably compiled by Dolphins blogger extraordinaire Max Himmelrich, demonstrate.
▪ T.J. McDonald. Age: 26. Height: 6-2. Weight: 217. Games played: 53. Games started: 53. Tackles: 218. Interceptions: 4. Passes defensed: 17.
▪ Nate Allen. Age: 29. Height: 6-0. Weight: 210. Games played: 93. Games started: 76. Tackles: 368. Interceptions: 13. Passes defensed: 34.
Max's take: “McDonald is the much better player. Nate Allen will get beat once a game for a terrible play, but can be solid outside of that. Besthttp://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-tampa-bay-buccaneers-c-1_1493.html situation is to have Allen and McDonald rotating, but it seems like the best use for McDonald is to enhance the run D and shallow coverages, then occasionally drop into deep coverage.”

Source: Saints re-sign Sterling Moore
The Saints have re-signed Sterling Moore Marcus Sherels Authentic Jersey to a one-year deal, according to a source.
Moore hooked on with the Saints last season and emerged as the team's top cornerback after injuries wiped out the top of the depth chart. He appeared http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-linval-joseph-jersey-c-2_44.html in 13 games last season, intercepted two passes, had 13 passes defensed and 56 tackles.
Moore had expressed interest about returning the Saints late in the season and both sides entered free agency with mutual interest in sticking together. Moore's agency later announced the move on Twitter.
New Orleans has been in the market for cornerbacks, and recently hosted restricted free agent Malcolm Butler, whose rights still belong to the New England Patriots, for a visit.
Even without additional moves, Moore, who http://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-jim-kelly-jersey-c-1_26.html can play both inside and outside, gives the Saints a solid option and quality depth behind protected starters, Delvin Breaux and P.J. Williams.

Starkey's Mailbag: Is Jarvis Jones the worst draft pick of the Mike Tomlin era?
Welcome to Joe Starkey's weekly mailbag, where the Post-Gazette columnist and 93.7 The Fan radio host answers your questions aboutRiley Dixon Youth Jersey sports, life, Buffalo, Bob Dylan and everything in between. If you want to ask Joe a question, tweet him @JoeStarkey1 or email him at jraystarkey@gmail.com. On to the questions:
David, @DCtherealcannon: Should Steelers look at James Conner as a pass rusher? #donotsleeponit
Starkey: That is an insane question, Mr. @DCtherealcannon, but I #wontsleeponit. In fact, I'm glad you asked.
And I can promise you this: If the Steelers had used James Conner as a situational pass rusher the past four years, he would have registered more Morris Claiborne Womens Jersey sacks than Jarvis Jones, who had six, or roughly one per season.
But no, Conner will not play defense. He will be a productive NFL running back. He showed last season a soft set of hands I did not know he had. He obviously has a nose for the goal line. He wrecks people in pass protection. He breaks tackles. That sounds like a pretty good third-down back or viable alternate in any backfield, if you ask me, including the Steelers'.
Your question, however, sparks a larger one: Is Jones the worst pick of the Tomlin era?
I say yes.
The only other players in that conversation, based on where they were picked, are Limas Sweed and Ziggy Hood, and let's eliminate Hood right http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-deion-sanders-jersey-c-2_46.html away. He was taken 32nd (Jones was 17th) and was easily the more productive pass rusher, even though that really wasn't his job and even if nobody would confuse him with J.J. Watt and even if he was often plowed into the ground in attempting to stop the run (which was his job). Hood had 8.5 sacks in his first four years here and 11.5 in five years. That's Lawrence Taylor territory compared to Jones.
Sweed was … wow. I don't think I need to rehash. But I do have video of his greatest play as a Steeler, which came in the same game as his worst play as a Steeler:
With apologies to Mike Adams, Bruce Davis and Shamarko Thomas, may I present worst five picks of the Tomlin era:
5. Curtis Brown (95th overall in 2011). My lasting image is of him sleeping at his locker before and after (and for all I know during) practice.
4. Dri Archer (97th overall in 2015). Got a last chance with the Buffalo Bills last season and didn't even show up. Kind of like his tenure here. Just an unmitigated disaster, in every conceivable way.
3. Hood
2. Sweed
1. Jones, whom, incidentally, I really like as a person. Just nothttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-matt-mcgloin-jersey-c-2_58.html as a pass rusher. Flash back to draft day, and Tomlin said Jones “was an easy evaluation.”
I'll say.

PEYTON MANNING REPORTEDLY NOT INTERESTED IN BROADCASTING
While sports media is abuzz Marquette King Kids Jersey with Tony Romo's retirement and subsequent move to the CBS broadcast booth, Peyton Manning apparently has no interest in following suit.
"I haven't actually talked to Peyton about this," John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal said Wednesday on Good Morning Football, "but people who are close to him say he has no interest in being a sports broadcaster. ... He has little interest in traveling every Sunday. He has little interest in going into work every Sunday to do a studio show."
Manning, who retired after winning Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos, would be perhaps the most sought-after former player in the media landscape. His affable personality and NFL resume made him a pitch man forTyeler Davison Womens Jersey seemingly every other commercial that aired during the latter part of his career.
Ourand said Manning is much more intrigued by the business side of football, highlighting current Broncos executive John Elway as an inspiration. Elway was a founding owner of the Colorado Crush of the Arena Football League before the team folded after the 2008 season. He rejoined the Broncos as their general manager in 2011.
Rumors of Manning's becoming a team owner were prevalent during his playing career, and CBS analysts who were asked about his thoughts last year indicated the former NFL MVP prefers management over media.
"There's no question he'd be terrific [on-air]," former NFL quarterback Rich Gannon told For the Win's Charles Curtis. "My guess is he wants http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-stephon-tuitt-jersey-c-2_15.html to be involved in the game, a little more hands on. That might be being a general manager or ownership."
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported in January that Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay pursued Manning to run football operations, with a pitch for Jon Gruden to take over as head coach. Irsay's pursuit failed in both respects, with Chris Ballard taking over as general manager and Chuck Pagano staying on as coach.
Manning retired with a record $400 million in career earnings, per Forbes.com, but that is not nearly enough for him to take a majority stake in any NFL franchise. It's more likely he would join an organization as a minority ownerhttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-jesse-james-jersey-c-2_24.html while wielding power in football operations.

Five Fun Facts About Dwight Lowery
This offseason, we want you to get to knowJerry Rice Kids Jersey your Los Angeles Chargers a little more off the field.
While you may be aware Dwight Lowery is entering his second season with the Bolts, here are five fun facts you likely don't know about the veteran safety: Read
Fan of the Force: Lowery is a self-proclaimed Star Wars fan. Although he's not as hardcore of a fan as some, he enjoys the movies for their content: “It's something that I enjoy just because it talks about the force and how it brings things together. There E.J. Manuel Youth Jersey are family issues, love and a sense of peace. You can apply a lot (of what you learn) to everyday life and that's why I like them.”
Deeper than the Surface: Lowery was a sociology major during his time at San Jose State and it's easy to see why he chose to go that route. “I'm not somebody who you can look at on the surface and have me figured out. I think that sometimes, we're so quick (to judge) because there's such quick access on social media. I like to communicate face-to-face. I like to have a personal relationship with people.”
BBQ Buff: While Mexican is his favorite cuisine, Lowery admits he has a new love: barbecue. He even shared a tip for what believes makes the best BBQ: “Anyone can barbecue, but it's really about how you marinate, how long youhttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-todd-davis-jersey-c-1_50.html marinate it for and how long you cook it. I feel like that's an art that's developed.”
New Hobby: Perhaps inspired by his love for lightsabers, Lowery has a new hobby he's ready to pick up: “I want to learn how to sword fight and (take up) combat fighting.” Lowery mentioned he's been into mixed martial arts for a while and approaches the game of football with the same mentality as that of an MMA fighter.
Sly Sense of Humor: You may think http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-orlando-scandrick-jersey-c-2_23.html Lowery is shy when you first meet him, but he has a sense of humor that takes people by surprise: “I'm reserved, but as soon as you get to know me, it's like a character shift!”

Here's where San Diego gets raw deal on L.A. Chargers
I's just San Diego's luck that as the Chargers head to Los Angeles, a young Bolts player has teammates talking about Canton.
“He's a potential Hall of Famer,” Dwight Lowery, a 10th-year NFLChris Jones Youth Jersey safety, was saying Monday about Joey Bosa.
Lowery, who's not prone to big talk, also said Bosa may have won the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award, not just Defensive Rookie of the Year honors, if not for a contractual impasse that cost him four games and a start.
As it turned out, getting a contract done with the Spani was the roughest part of Bosa's first year in the NFL.
Once he recovered from a hamstring injury and suited up, everything else was jake.
The defensive end trashed the tackles, guards, tight ends — anybody, really -- who stood between him and the ball.
Now, instead of returning to San Diego to resume his career, Bosa is on to the big city.
He immediately becomes the top up-and-coming NFL player in the country's second-biggest market.
President Trump ought to Tweet something aboutMenelik Watson Kids Jersey these unfair trade deals involving L.A. and San Diego.
L.A. gets Bosa, one year after San Diegan Dave Roberts joins L.A.'s Dodgers and leads them to within two wins of the World Series despite the team's big league record for players on the disabled list.
A bigger market should suit Bosa. Working near L.A. and Orange County money, he'll score side deals easier than the NFL pact his pill of an agent finally hashed out with the Spani.
He likes the big stage.
In high school, he led a football powerhouse to the state title. At Ohio State, he took the Buckeyes to their first national title in 12 years, beating Alabama along the way.
For San Diegans who love football, it's a piece of rotten luck that he's leaving.
The Bosa exit stage north recalls Chargers end Fred Dean going north, farther, to the San Francisco 49ers in 1981.
Instead of Dean Spanos relocating the young star, it was owner Gene Klein.
Pay me or trade me, Fred Dean said, after learning that his Chargers salary was about the same as what his brother-in-law got to drive a truck.
The 49ers paid him for nearly 60 games and won two Super Bowls with Dean, who posed a health hazard to quarterbacks.
“I made it to the other side of the rainbow,” Dean said of the trade while going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2008 in Canton, Ohio. “For me, that was the pot of gold.”
Forecasting Hall induction for any 21-year-old is dicey, of course.
Lowery, who couched the projection with thehttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-21-vontae-davis-jersey-c-1_11.html word “potential”, is as even-keeled as any Chargers player.
What he saw from Bosa was ridiculous.
“He can be as good as he wants to be,” Lowery said. “Hopefully, he makes the right decisions along the way, things of that nature. And, hopefully he's able to stay healthy throughout his career.
“If he does those things,” Lowery said, “I think it's true Hall of Fame potential.”
Bosa's having missed training camp last year reduced expectations among veteran teammates.
Serving notice that he didn't need training camp, Bosa recorded two sacks and two tackles for loss in his first NFL game, gashing the Oakland Raiders.
From there, he was on every offensive line's Wanted List yet still dominated. Drawing on his Leslie O'Neal-like hand moves and other weaponry, he whipped up on most opponents.
“I was very surprised, very taken aback,” sad Lowery, who singled out Bosa's run defense, not just the sacks and pressures.
Looking ahead, Lowery said that Bosa, although opponents will pay more attention to him, stands to improve because the Chargers' new “4-3” defense better fits him.
The veteran laughed while recalling Bosa's dominancehttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-jason-verrett-jersey-c-1_25.html of 2016. Clapping while standing at Chargers Park, the safety said Bosa's work was worthy of applause from the secondary.
It will be Angelenos who do the applauding in Bosa's second NFL season.

Takkarist McKinley Looking to Continue UCLA Defensive Draft Success
A quick scan of UCLA's draft history Minnesota-Vikings Kids Jersey shows how successful the Bruins have been at sending defensive talent into the NFL ranks via the NFL Draft. Takkarist McKinley could be the next in a storied history of first-round draft picks out of the Bruins defense.
RELATED: Biggest Question Marks in the 2017 NFL Draft
Since 2002 UCLA's defense has produced four first-round picks, five second-round picks and four third-round picks. They've failed to have a defensive player drafted in the top three rounds just five times since 2002.
Last year, Kenny Clark was the 27th overall Anthony Barr Kids Jersey selection by the Green Bay Packers. Myles Jack went 36th overall, and would have certainly been drafted higher if not for injury concerns.
Other highlights of UCLA's defensive draft history include the ninth overall pick in 2014 -- Anthony Barr -- and the 39th overall selection in 2011 -- Akeem Ayers.
This year, EDGE rusher Takkarist McKinley is primed to be the next first-round defensive selection from the Bruins.
McKinley is projected a late first or early second round selection by CBS Sports' and is considered the third best outside linebacker in the draft class.
Last season at UCLA he had 50 solo tackles (61 total), 10.0 sacks and 18 tackles for a loss. He also defended six passes, forced three fumbles and recovered a fumble.
For his three-year career, McKinley totaled 80 solo tackles (99 total), 28.0 tackles for a loss, 16.0 sacks, 10 passes defended and six http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-michael-griffin-jersey-c-2_55.html forced fumbles. The vast majority of that production came in his junior year, and he only played four games his freshman season.
While McKinley looks like the next first round draft pick for the UCLA defense, he won't be the only member of the Bruins defense to hear his name called in the 2017 NFL Draft.
UCLA will likely see cornerback Fabian Moreau and outside linebacker Jayon Brown selected within the first three or four rounds, andhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-otis-sistrunk-jersey-c-2_27.html could also hear defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes called late in the draft. A few other UCLA defensive players have a shot at undrafted free agecy, too.

It might be Von Miller's time to be Broncos' captain
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- When Von Miller stands in front of his locker at the Denver Broncos' complex these days, he doesn't have to lookCorbin Bryant Youth Jersey far to see what's missing this season.
Or rather who's missing, because to say there is an opening in the leadership department would be a sizable understatement. Just look at the last two offseasons.
After the 2015 season, Peyton Manning retired, removing one of the strongest leaders to have ever graced an NFL roster. And after the 2016 season, DeMarcus Ware retired, and Ware isn't that far down the list of top leaders either.
So whether by necessity, timing or the way the football dominoes have fallen, it could be Miller's time.
“We're missing one of the greatest leaders in the National Football League, to ever come through the National Football League in DeMarcus Ware, so there's a little void there,'' Miller said Tuesday after the team's first offseason workout. “But I feel like we'll be able to fill it.''
Miller is the Broncos' marquee player. He's the guy with the $114.5 million contract that made him the highest-paid defensive player in the game.
Miller has been named to five Pro Bowls andTj ward Womens Jersey three first-team All-Pro Teams, and he has won a Super Bowl MVP award. But he has never been elected as a team captain.
Circumstances may demand that he add that to his resume in 2017. In terms of resumes, with Manning's and Ware's out of the mix, Miller's stands out.
Miller is one of the Broncos' strongest voices, a free spirit whose wit and biting tongue find plenty of targets in the locker room every day. But he has not yet been in a role where he helped set the tone of the team.
Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins were on the Broncos' roster when Miller was a rookie, Manning arrived in Miller's second season, and Ware arrived in his fourth season. And when Ware arrived, Miller simply was trying to resurrect his career as he battled his way back from a six-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy and a torn ACL.
Time has marched on, and Miller, about to enter his seventh season, finds himself in a different situation.
“I feel like I've always been a leader,'' Miller said. “I've always had great examples of great leadership going all the way back to Tim Tebow and Brian Dawkins and Champ Bailey. I've always had great examples of great leadership, so I know what it takes and I feel like I've always done that.''
Asked if it was important to him to be acknowledged as a team captain, Miller said, “It's important for me to win games and win the Super Bowl. You've got to go out there and earn the respect from the guys in the locker room. I feel likehttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-mark-sanchez-jersey-c-2_43.html my whole career, I've always been kind of like the people's champ of the locker room. It's not really going to change. I'm always going to be the people's champ, but we have a void on our football team with DeMarcus Ware missing. That's definitely one of my goals, but the No. 1 goal is to win games. That's why I'm here.''
However it all shakes out over the next few months, Miller acknowledged, as he did after Manning's departure, that replacing Ware's presence in the locker room can't be done simply by being named a captain. It will take a more concerted http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-dak-prescott-jersey-c-2_44.html effort from Miller and others to set the tone.
“That's tough, that's just like when Peyton left,'' Miller said. “You can't really just fill that void. You've got to just modify the team and move on. Other leaders will step up, other players will step up … but [you] can't really just fill a void like that.''

Every 2018 fifth-year option: From locks to no chance and everything in between
Thus far only the Los Angeles Rams Lester Hayes Jersey have picked up the fifth-year option on their 2014 NFL Draft selection, using it on defensive tackle Aaron Donald, a no-brainer move if there ever was one.
What's surprising is that more of these options haven't been taken care of. After all, this isn't the historically terrible 2013 draft class we're talking about; the 2014 class has been excellent so far in terms of first-round picks.
Well, with the exception of the Brownshttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-nate-allen-jersey-c-2_54.html anyway. Cleveland took Johnny Manziel and Justin Gilbert and, boy, has that panned out poorly. Manziel is the bigger name but Gilbert might sting more because he was followed immediately by Anthony Barr, Eric Ebron, Taylor Lewan, Odell Beckham and Aaron Donald. Oof.
Let's break down who is likely to behttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-thomas-morstead-jersey-c-1_44.html picked up and who is not, with some explanations on the question marks (bolded options have already been picked up).

GUY WISDOMNFLMinnesota Vikings Safety Agrees
Three months ago to the day, a self-describedRod Woodson Kids Jersey delivery guy made a drop-off to the home of Minnesota Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo where he says he received a poor tip for his service. How this didn't become breaking news on CNN, we have no idea. Afterward, he took to his Twitter account to record his ninth tweet in just over three years, as he sent a message to Sendejo, telling him that if he was going to open the door in his undieshttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-jack-butler-jersey-c-2_45.html and make him stare at his “tiny dick," then he should tip better:
Not to take such an accusation lying down, at least not for more than three months, Sendejo finally responded on Monday afternoon by stating that he was more offended that he was accused of being cheap than he was of being accused of having a microscopic dong:
Apparently, this penis was memorable enough, because the delivery guy can still recall it, and used its allegedly underwhelming size to try to burn Sendejo, as well as the Vikings for coming up a game shy of making the postseason:
It's nice to see people use Twitter for itshttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-patrick-willis-jersey-c-1_36.html intended purpose for once, and to see Sendejo be so at ease with his endowment. Hey, as we've reported in the past, a small penis can drive women wild.

Kamar Aiken will provide competition for both Phillip Dorsett and Donte Moncrief
When the Colts signed Kamar Aiken, most people thought that it was bad news for Phillip Dorsett when it comes to the number three Philadelphia-Eagles Jersey wide receiver role, but it's possible that Aiken could push for an even larger role.
After signing with the Colts Aiken said, “I was told there is going to be open competition basically in our receiver room,” which seemed to suggest he'll be competing for a starting spot. And then last week, Chris Ballard explained that not only is Aiken competition for Dorsett but also for Donte Moncrief too.
“[He's] a bigger receiver, a great guy, great teammate, tough, will do the dirty work,” Ballard said, according to Colts.com's Kevin Bowen. “We thought he was just a really good fit to add competition to the group, and he will do Chuck Foreman Authentic Jersey that. He's a great pro. We think Kamar's got a lot of upside. We added competition, but it's not just competition for Phillip. It's competition for Moncrief also.”
That makes sense, as Aiken's game is better-suited to push Moncrief anyway rather than Dorsett, who can still have a role as a deep threat wideout. So we will have to pay attention to how Donte Moncrief's role is affected by the signing of Kamar Aiken, too.
It's a big year for Moncrief, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract with the Colts. He's been a very good red zone threat for the Colts, but injuries plagued him last year and prevented him from taking the steps forward that many thought he would. So now he's going to have competition too, and he'll have to earn his playing time.
Most likely, the Colts will find ways to http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-joe-berger-jersey-c-2_18.html use all of their wideouts, from Donte Moncrief to Kamar Aiken to Phillip Dorsett to Chester Rogers (and of course T.Y. Hilton as the top receiver). So both Moncrief and Aiken figure to get plenty of opportunities, though the number two receiver role could be decided this offseason. Moncrief would likely be the frontrunner at this point, but Aiken is a talented receiver who was a very good pickup this offseason.
“He's a big, physical guy that can play with the ball in his hands, without the ball in his hands,” Pagano said of Aiken, according to Colts.com. “He will be a force in the run game. He's not afraid to mix it up. He will do the dirty work. He's a great pro. He's a smart, intelligent guy. He understands what it takes day in and day out to become a really good football player. We've had some bigger guys, but just not enough of them. He brings a big physical presence to that room.”
Aiken had a breakout season in 2015 with the Ravens but grew frustrated in 2016 as he was buried on the depth chart, so he's excited for an opportunity to compete in Indianapolis. And while the Colts have T.Y. Hilton already in placehttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-otis-sistrunk-jersey-c-2_27.html and then some other talent in the receiving room, Kamar Aiken won't just provide competition for guys like Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett, he'll likely provide a productive target for Andrew Luck in the passing game too regardless of where he winds up on the depth chart.

C'est juste un travail: En parlant de la rafale rampante, qui a lieu dans le premier épisode de Notre Fille, elle a dit le présentateur de 30 ans sait que 'c'est un emploi' avant elle et rien d'autre

L'ancienne actrice de Coronation Street est restée dans son smoking renversant de plus tôt dans la nuit.

En volant le drapeau: Comme le duo clamboured dans un taxi, ils ont été pris dans un ajustement sur les rires, tandis que Michelle a tenu un drapeau de camouflage, sans doute un souvenir du lancement triomphant du spectacle

Mark entre-temps, qui n'avait pas été vu à la première, était convenablement plus faible clé dans un ensemble denim.

La belle star, qui a grimpé à la gloire à l'inauguration de TOWIE 2010 diamond love bracelet, portait un jean serré avec un T-shirt gris complémentaire et une veste en jean pour sa soirée avec sa superbe épouse.

NaVorro Bowman aiming for return in time for 49ers minicamp
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman hasn't played a snap of football since Oct. 2. That day, he suffered Khalil Mack Kids Jersey a torn Achilles that cost him the rest of the season.
Bowman has unfortunately grown accustomed to missing large chunks of time, but those absences haven't killed Bowman's desire to play. In fact, they've only strengthened his resolve to get back better than before.
Such is the case currently as Bowman reported for the start of the team's offseason conditioning program Monday with his Achilles mostly healed and a return apparently imminent.
“I believe he's going to be cleared when we get going on the field," coach Kyle Shanahan said. "I know that's something him and [head Tj Carrie Youth Jersey athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson] are still working out. Right now, he was in the weight room doing the testing and stuff. We can't go out on the field with him yet, but when that time comes, I think two weeks from now at minicamp, might have a better answer for you.”
Bowman said he participated in the running drills and other tests the players participated in Monday. While he said he still has some kinks to work out, Bowman is also expecting to be back on the field when the Niners hold their first minicamp April 25-27.
Of course, whether Bowman gets fully cleared to participate in that is up to Ferguson but Bowman said Ferguson watched him Monday and thought he moved well.
Getting back to full strength has been another lengthy process for Bowman, who has previously returned from multiple serious knee injuries. Bowman has spent most of his time near the Niners facility so the training staff could keep an eye on his rehabilitation.
"It was good," Bowman said. "We took it http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-james-laurinaitis-jersey-c-1_20.html slow. In the last month, started ramping it up, doing a bit more things, jumping around, it's been great, there's been no setbacks or anything, just looking forward to getting back out there and showing what I have."
Upon his return, Bowman will be jumping into a 4-3 defensive scheme under new coordinator Robert Saleh. It will be the first time in Bowman's eight-year career he hasn't been in a 3-4 front. Although it's something new, Bowman expressed excitement to play in a scheme where he's only responsible for one gap and doesn't expect the adjustment to be too difficult.
The goal will then be to get back to the elite level of play he's known for.
"I was telling the guys today, I'm hungry," Bowman said. "I've been out of the game since Week 4 so any accomplishment that I had before, none of that matters. I really want to get back to prove myself and get back to that levelhttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-maurkice-pouncey-jersey-c-2_11.html and guys were saying ‘What are you on? How are you moving like this so early?' So I'll put the work in and I think God will bless me with a great season this year."

Titans DL Sylvester Williams Wants to Make Late Father Proud
As a member of the Titans, the team's new defensive lineman plans to continue doing things to make his father happy. He just wishes his dad could witness it himself.
“I remember when I first went to college, my dad was so happy for me,'' Williams said. “The day I got drafted by the Broncos, he wasJarvis Jones Youth Jersey so proud. And I told him then: ‘Everything I do is going to be for you. I did everything I could to make him happy, and to make his life as easy as possible with his health issues.
“I know he was proud of me -- he used to tell me all the time. It hurts not having him here with me, but I plan to live through the memory he created.”
Sylvester Williams Sr. died on February 10, a little more than a month before his son signed as a free agent with the Tennessee Titans. The elder Williams saw his son, who worked at Backyard Burger and Taco Bell while in high school, pay his dues after nearly missing out on a chance to go to college -- and play football -- while working in a factory for six months after his high school graduation.
He also saw his son win a Super Bowl ring in Denver after becoming a full-time starter, and a dependable pro.
Sylvester Williams Sr. died following a heart attack last month. He'd battled health problems for years.
The day Williams signed with the Titans, he Phillip Dorsett Jersey said he was thrilled to know the Titans believed in him. But the 6-foot-2, 312-pound nose tackle admitted it was hard to not have his father with him on such a big day.
“Being here in this moment without him, it's tough,'' Williams said. “But I know he would be happy for me.
“I just want to be as good a man, and as good a father as he was. He was a great man. My father worked in a factory for over 20-something years. There was nothing he couldn't do. I've seen my dad build walls and he was the type of person who wanted to help everybody, that's just how he was. He never took the time to look out for himself. That's why when I was able, I tried to do everything I could to make him comfortable.”
A first-round pick by the Broncos in the 2013 NFL Draft, Williams has played in 60 games over the past four seasons, with 48 starts. He started all 16 games last season for the Broncos, when he recorded 29 tackles and a sack.
In his career, he's tallied 94 tackles and six sacks.
The story behind Williams is one of determination.
In high school, he started just one game at Jefferson City (Mo.). A coach spotted him in the hallways, and asked him to go out for football, so he gave it a shot. He was raw, with poor technique when he took the field. When he played, he simply tried to outmuscle his opposition. When his senior season ended, he figured that would be the end of his playing days.
Williams worked at Wal-Mart for a short time beforehttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-dexter-mccoil-jersey-c-1_18.html landing a job at the same factory where his father worked, Modine Manufacturing Company. He made radiator parts for large trucks, and said he was happy with the money and the benefits. But six months in he wondered if there was something else out there for him.
“I have a ton of respect for the people there,'' Williams said. “But I just knew I wanted to pursue something different in life, so I went back to school.”
A former coach suggested Williams go to junior college, and he did. His father drove him to Coffeyville (Kansas) Community College, roughly five hours from him.
There, Williams got serious about football, and his life. After ballooning to 360 pounds, he got into better shape, and he ate better. He learned football, and colleges began to find out he had a lot of potential. Williams visited schools like USC, Auburn, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State and Baylor before deciding on North Carolina.
Williams started 45 games during his collegiate career, and earned a first-round draft pick.
Now, after four years in Denver, Williams ishttp://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-green-bay-packers-c-1_1170.html ready to make an impact in Tennessee.
He's excited. And he's determined to keep going.
“It's sad to see him go, it really is,'' Williams said of his father. “He took a lot of pride in his kids. It hurts not having him here with me.
“But I am going to keep doing the things that would make him proud.”

Mark Sanchez picks 6; Bears fans may not be done booing Jay Cutler's number
It would be difficult to find a Anthony Barr Youth Jersey uniform number that's been booed by Chicago Bears fans over the past eight seasons more than No. 6.
But whatever bad mojo Jay Cutler brought to the number, it hasn't dissuaded Mark Sanchez from choosing to wear the number he wore at USC and with the New York Jets and Denver Broncos. He wore No. 3 with the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys.
Cutler's eight-year stint in Chicago, whichhttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-xavier-rhodes-jersey-c-2_27.html came to an end when the Bears released him in March, was not without its highlights. In fact, he rewrote the record book for the QB-starved franchise. But expectations were Super Bowl-caliber when the Bears acquired him from Denver in 2009 for a hefty price, and the result was just one playoff berth.
Sanchez can relate to the pressure of the position. He once was booed during a scrimmage in New York. His "Butt Fumble" is one of thehttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-terrell-davis-jersey-c-1_20.html more infamous plays in NFL history.
But maybe the future is brighter for No. 6 in Chicago. At least the expectations won't be as high.

Caswell Enters Surprise Guilty Plea in January Party Shooting in Salem
An 18-year-old rural Salem man pleaded guilty in Marion County Court to three of ten charges pending against him following two La'el collins Youth Jersey shootings at a Salem party in January.
Tyler Caswell entered the open plea late Tuesday morning before Judge Marc Kelley to one Class X felony charge of aggravated discharge of a firearm, obstructing justice for disposing of the gun after the shooting, and unlawful possession of a stolen weapon. Two counts of attempted murder were among the counts that were dropped.
Caswell will be sentenced on May 31st at 11 am following completion of a presentence investigation report.
As part of the plea, both the prosecution Anthony Brown Jersey and defense agreed the sentences did not have to be served consecutively because great bodily harm had not been proven. Caswell's attorney Matt Wilzbach says that ultimately means Caswell will face six to 30 years in prison on the Class X aggravated discharge of a firearm charge, with the sentence on the other two sentences running concurrently.
Caswell pleaded guilty to the aggravated discharge of a firearm count involving the shooting of 20-year-old Jacob Hayes of East Lester in Salem. Wilzbach says Caswell had always admitted to having fired the shot at Hayes, although he had claimed his action was in self-defense to keep from being shot himself. Caswell had maintained the shot that struck 21-year-old Jacob Joyner of East Bennett in Salem was an accident when http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-marcus-allen-jersey-c-2_25.html there was a struggle over the gun.
Police later located a gun that Caswell had reportedly brought to the party, which resulted in the unlawful possession of a stolen weapon charge being added.
Wilzbach says the plea bargain was just worked out Tuesday morning before what was supposed to be the final pre-trial hearing in the case prior to a jury trial next week. Wilzbach says Caswell was looking at a minimum of 62 years in prison if found guilty of the charges. While Caswell could pursue self-defense, Wilzbach felt the plea struck a balance against what could be a much longer sentence.
Caswell remains in the Marion County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond pending the sentencing hearing.
Both Hayes and Joyner were transferred to St. Louis Hospital for the treatment of their gunshot wounds, but both were later released andhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-willie-brown-jersey-c-2_33.html were present in the courtroom for Caswell's preliminary hearing. Hayes has since been arrested on drug possession charges and remains in the Marion County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bond.

Ian Williams Wins 53rd Congressional Cup
For the third time in his career http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-seth-roberts-jersey-c-2_39.html and the first time since 2012, Ian Williams of Great Britain took home the Crimson Blazer after defeating Johnie Berntsson of Sweden in the final round at the 53rd annual Congressional Cup hosted by the Long Beach Yacht Club.
“It's fantastic,” Williams said, after winning his third Congressional Cup. “It's been a long time coming, and it's great to come back with Kyle Wilson Womens Jersey some of the old guys from the olden days.”
Williams led Berntsson 2-1 in the best of five final, but in the fourth round, Williams received a black flag after his boat touched the officiating boat and Berntsson was given an automatic point.
“Honestly, we got the black flag, and we kind of knew it was coming,” Williams said.
Williams defeated Berntsson by over a minute in the fifth and final round and immediately celebrated with his crew. Not only had Williams http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-ramon-foster-jersey-c-2_21.html defeated some of the top skippers in the world, but right before the final round, a heavy dose of fog arrived and decreased the visibility substantially.
“It's pretty rare to race when you can't see the top mark,” he said. “I think we dealt with it reasonably well.”
Williams knocked out three-time defending champion Taylor Canfield of the U.S. Virgin Islands in the semifinals. Canfield defeated Phil Robertson of New Zealand in the third- place match.
Chris Steele of New Zealand won the Fleet http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-john-stallworth-jersey-c-2_49.html Race and, more importantly, the $2,000 prize. The Fleet Race featured the six crews that did not advance to the semifinals.

Get milk!
When I was younger, I used to take eggs from the fridge. I would hold them in my hands, watch, and wait. They never became chickens, which Xavier Rhodes Youth Jersey made me sad, but eventually happy, because it set me down the path of discovering milk.
The milk was always above the eggs in the fridge, so when I realized that eggs didn't work the way I thought they would, I made a choice. I reached for the carton. Rather, I asked my mom if I could try the mysterious liquid of the refrigerator's third floor. I was five. I was curious. And I was thirsty. And so I drank that 2% like my life depended on it.
By ten, I had made a fateful transition. Relegating http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-trevor-siemian-jersey-c-1_47.html watery 2% to the past, I made the transition to Whole. And boy did it complete me! But this wasn't to last. After three years of blissful milk-consumption, I read an article on Aol.com that said milk could be a carcinogen. I didn't want to get cancer and die, so I did the drastic: I stopped drinking milk.
It was only five years later, and not necessarily in my correct mind, but oh was it my right one, that I caved—not because I was any less scared of cancer; I just missed my milk that much.
You see, I've never broken a bone. I've never broken a bone, and, for years, I drank at least a tall glass of ice cold milk with every meal. Is this just a coincidence? I don't think so. Spanning not only cultures, but also species, milk unites the creatures of the earth. As an infant, milk is the crucial source of calcium that sculpts the skeleton. As a college student, milk is the crucial source of moisture that makes Oreos taste much http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-chaz-green-jersey-c-2_32.html better. Milk, in all its forms, is not simply delicious. It is necessary.
Milk is not just a delicious, refreshing and nutritional beverage. It is also a colloidal-suspension, which sounds cool.

Shannon Sharpe's message to Dez Bryant after WR reacts to criticism
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant Kenny Vaccaro Authentic Jersey shared his thoughts on racism in America in a series of Instagram posts Monday, and the following day NFL Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe responded to Bryant and urged Bryant to educate himself on the issue.
Following Tuesday's episode of Undisputed, Bryant called out Sharpe and accused him of "twisting my words."
On Wednesday, Sharpe invited Bryant toMartavis Bryant Kids Jersey come discuss the issue of race relations and racism on the show, and explained why he believes Bryant has a "shallow" perspective.
“When I discuss a topic on this show, I don't do it for shock value. I say what I truly, honestly feel. I do my homework, I do my research, and I try to speak in a way that the people at home will understand what I'm trying to convey.
Dez, I would love for you to have the opportunity Joe Greene Womens Jersey to come sit and discuss your views, and then you hear my side, and we can go from there. But before you do, I ask that you do me this one favor.
I ask that you read the DOJ report - the Department of Justice report - what they found in the police department in Ferguson, Missouri. What they found in Chicago, and what they found in Baltimore, Maryland. And then, and only then, if you http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-25-patrick-robinson-jersey-c-1_13.html think personal accountability is the way, then we can have this honest conversation.”

Allen: Defensive coordinator knows Razorbacks defense
FAYETTEVILLE — New Arkansas defensive coordinator Paul Rhoads knows best the deepest part of his Razorbacks defense.
Rhoads is new as Arkansas' defensive coordinator but not new to Arkansas.
The former Iowa State coach (2009-2015) and Garrett Celek Youth Jersey former University of Pittsburgh and Auburn defensive coordinator coached the Razorbacks secondary last year for Bret Bielema while Robb Smith, now Minnesota's defensive coordinator, coordinated the defense.
An Arkansas secondary that struggled against the pass in 2015 improved under Rhoads in 2016 but a Smith coordinated defense that did especially well stopping the run in 2014 and pretty well stopping the run in 2015 got run over big-time in 2016.
Think of the secondary and pass-defense comes first to mind but the secondary is vital to run support, too.
Considering that senior first-team free safety Cyrus Kouandjio Womens Jersey Josh Liddell of Pine Bluff Dollarway operated second-team team strong safety and second-team nickel back in last Saturday's scrimmage just to enhance his versatility, indicates the secondary's potential.
For with senior De'Andre Coley and fourth-year junior Santos Ramirez, customarily alternating strong safeties, mixed and matched as the first-team safeties, the Razorbacks secondary scrimmaged seldom missed a beat.
Statistically, Coley, 10 tackles, and interception and a fumble recovery, especially excelled. And Bielema, the only coach addressing media after the scrimmage, praised Ramirez, too.
“I really am happy with the growth of Santos Ramirez,” Bielema said. “I think maturity-wise, coachability, all those things are very, very positive.”
In the April 8 scrimmage Ramirez logged six tackles, one preventing a touchdown, and broke up a pass.
Returning cornerbacks Ryan Pulley and Henre Toliver have excelled and Rhoads now coaches two he counted on but didn't have last year, Kevin Richardson and Britto Tutt.
Well, Rhoads had Richardson for one game. The now senior from Jacksonville not only is Arkansas' best nickel back but top reserve cornerback also capable of playing safety.
Richardson missed the 2016 season after tearing pectoral muscles during the season-opening victory over Louisiana Tech.
He has practiced full tilt all spring breaking up three passes and making five tackles during the April 8 scrimmage and last Saturday with more blitzeshttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-terrell-davis-jersey-c-1_20.html added, making a minus 8-yard stop among his eight tackles and breaking up a pass.
“K. Rich we feel really good about,” Bielema said. “Obviously that nickel spot he does some good things and he's a very explosive player. He's a guy that can really play all five DB positions.”
Tutt was last year's junior college transfer cornerback expected to immediately help the 2016 secondary.
He couldn't. A torn anterior cruciate ligament in an Aug. 18 preseason scrimmage ended Tutt's 2016 season before it began.
Bielema and Rhoads have brought Tutt along slowly this spring.
He scrimmaged last Saturday for the first time and made six tackles for the second-team defense.
“I've liked Britto since he got here,” Bielema said. “Last year before he got injured, he was a guy we were talking about. We just felt like last week he wasn't quite there yet. So it was good to see him pull the trigger. He's very intelligent and he's a very long corner. He's got great length in his arms and legs. He's a guy that we're excited to get in the mix.”
Junior Reid Miller also played some snaps at first-team free safety and third-year sophomore cornerback Nate Dalton worked some second team.
“The good news is that we probably played truly six to eight DBs and then Nate Dalton came in and did some good stuff,” Bielema said. “So there's a handful before we even get these freshmen coming in. I think Korey Hernandez (the January enrolled freshman who has practiced but was held out of the scrimmage because of an injury) is in a position to help us. So we are probably a little bit deeper and better at that position.”
The more he can count on at every defensive position the better, Rhoads said.
“I'm philosophically a believer in playing http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-tony-romo-jersey-c-2_3.html 22-plus guys as much as you can,” Rhoads said last Thursday of the second unit reservers spelling starters “think it does a number of things. I think it keeps you fast. I think it keeps you conditioned, so late in the first half and late in the game you're still playing fast because you've rested guys and played guys. And I think it keeps morale high. So as we compete for starting jobs, the bulk of the two deep knows they're going to be called upon and used.”

Strong tight end class might tempt Saints in this year's NFL Draft
At first glance, the New Orleans SaintsChaz Green Authentic Jersey could feel set in their current group of tight ends.
Coby Fleener is entering his second season with the Saints and Sean Payton expressed confidence Fleener's 2017 campaign should be more consistent. The Saints also appear to have depth there with Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui returning to the team after injuries sidelined both players in 2016.
The Saints even brought back veteran John Phillips and carry youngsters Jake Stoneburner and Garrett Griffin on the roster.
So why would the Saints consider drafting Karl Joseph Jersey a tight end? The same reason the Saints selected Jimmy Graham in 2010 even though they employed veterans like Jeremy Shockey and David Thomas.
The prospects might be too good to pass up at certain points in the draft.
Players like Alabama's O.J. Howard, Miami's David Njoku and Ole Miss' Evan Engram are just the start of a very impressive tight end crop entering this year's NFL Draft. Another passing option for Drew Brees within the offense, especially given his rapport with tight ends, could convince the Saints to nab one at some point.
Plus, taking a tight end might make more sense than you would imagine despite the gaggle of players already on the roster.
Fleener may technically hold four morehttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-reggie-nelson-jersey-c-2_4.html years left on his contract. As like many contracts, the length of Fleener's deal is more deceiving than it may appear. Fleener could be on the chopping block if he doesn't perform better than in 2016. He would only carry $4.8 million in dead money spread over the final three years of the deal if the Saints release him after this year.
Hoomanawanui only has one year left on his contract after missing all of last season with a leg injury he sustained in preseason. So thehttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-max-unger-jersey-c-1_29.html Saints could potentially need two tight ends next offseason.
Throw all of those factors together and the Saints may be open to drafting a tight end in less than two weeks.

Terrell Davis Chooses Hall Of Fame Presenter
CANTON, Ohio (CBS4) – Former BroncosScott Tolzien Jersey running back Terrell Davis revealed who will present him when he's inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.
Davis was selected as a hall of fame inductee in February, but before he even played a down in the NFL at least one person knew he'd make it to Canton.
Agent Neil Schwartz, Davis says in his announcement, asked http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-dontrelle-inman-jersey-c-1_19.html that he, before the two even signed together, present him at the induction ceremony.
“I chose him, really for a simple reason, before I got drafted, before I signed an agent out of the University of Georgia, we met in a diner in New York, and we had this long talk,” Davis said. “It was probably around 8 o'clock in the evening. We shut the diner down around three in the morning. We had a very candid conversation. It was very honest, very open. When we left that diner, he looked at me and said, ‘I want you to promise me one thing.” And I said, ‘What is that?' He said, ‘When you make it to Canton, I want to present you.' I said, ‘Wow.” And so I took that as this man having all thehttp://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-indianapolis-colts-c-1_46.html confidence in the world in me, and I hadn't even played a down in the NFL. I said ‘OK, when it happens I'll let you present me.' So now he's presenting me.”

Adam Jones loses it on reporter, Marvin Lewis has to calm him down
The anger management classes Adam Jones Eric Kendricks Youth Jersey was taking since he was accused of spitting on a jailhouse nurse really seem to be working.
The Bengals cornerback blew up at a reporter Monday, who had the temerity to ask about the most interesting thing to happen to him this offseason.
According to Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News, Jones said before his interview that he wasn't going “to talk about court,” which presumably meant his January arrest.
Early in the process, he spoke about his gratitude toward the organization for sticking with him, but later a reporter asked if he had anything “to prove http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-captain-munnerlyn-jersey-c-2_49.html to the fans for them to welcome you back since there were a lot of people upset with the way things went down in the offseason for you?”
That was enough to trigger him.
“Didn't I just tell you don't ask me that?” Jones said. “You out the [interview]. Turn around. Go back that way. See you. Next question. That's his last interview for the year.”
Richard Sherman is presumably somewhere cashing a royalty check for Jones lifting his material, but the Bengals had to manage their volatile cornerback yet again.
Jones continued to berate the reporter (who walked away) for asking “stupid ass [expletive] questions,” after the interview ended. He then went to the restroom, but came back and yelled at the reporter to “shut the [expletive] up.”
That's when teammates and even coach Marvin Lewis had to come to the locker room to calm him down.
The Bengals have been largely patient with http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joe-staley-jersey-c-1_30.html Jones because he's good at football. But as the weird dance with Sherman and the Seahawks proves, every relationship can eventually reach a point when one side decides it's not worth it.

Drug overdoses claim nearly 3 times more lives than homicides, report says
Overdose deaths continued to spike last year, claiming nearly three times the number of victims than homicides.
Heroin and other opioids were blamedCyrus Kouandjio Youth Jersey in at least 84 percent of Jefferson County's 362 known overdose deaths, posing "Louisville's most significant public safety and public health crisis," said U.S. Attorney John Kuhn with the Western District of Kentucky.
Since toxicology reports are pending; the death toll may actually be higher, Kuhn said Tuesday after releasing a 40-page "Call to Action" to attack the epidemic on multiple fronts. The report makes several recommendations, including asking every school to implement evidence-based drug-use prevention programs.
"I'm not talking about 'bring in a cop, wag a finger,'" programs of old, Kuhn said.
Some schools in Jefferson County "have Tony Dorsett Jersey abandoned such programs, focusing instead on targeted intervention resources for children who are using substances" already, according to the report.
Another idea calls for educating parents that "an attitude of tolerance for even occasional or experimental substance use puts their children at risk for serious, debilitating and life-threatening addictions."
Yes, the experts are standing their ground with their view that marijuana can be a gateway drug — in opposition to a growing number of advocates pushing to legalize the drug. Kuhn said the research is "incredibly clear" that use of alcohol, marijuana or even cigarettes before age 21 significantly increases chances of addiction later on.
Dozens on the front lines in the public and private sector had input in the report, developed on the heels of a December heroin and opioid summit, hosted by Kuhn's office along with the University of Louisville School of Medicine and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
During an interview Tuesday with the Courier-Journal, Kuhn underscored his dedication to finding solutions in three key categories — prevention, treatment and supply.
For starters, he wants a statewide repository http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-chris-jones-jersey-c-2_20.html to more quickly and more accurately collect key data to define the breath of the problem. That includes tracking deaths, non-fatal overdose runs, the use of naloxone — a heroin and opioid antidote — and drug trends.
"Inconsistency is a huge problem," he said, pointing to discrepancies in fatal overdose numbers from agency to agency.
Treatment providers need to come together to track bed requests verses availability, the report states, citing Dr. Robert DuPont, a national expert on drug treatment and former White House drug czar. Prior efforts have been thwarted by what DuPont has publicly deemed a "long-running war" between those who embrace the Medication-Assisted Treatment, or MAT, model and those touting only abstinence.
The magnitude of the problem requires everyonehttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-menelik-watson-jersey-c-2_49.html to play a role — from parents and teachers to law enforcement and doctors and addiction specialists, according to the report.

Mike Tomlin vouches for Steelers TE Ladarius Green
Mike Tomlin praised Ladarius Green's impact on the 2016 Steelers during the NFL owners meeting.
Green, who missed 10 games due Scott Crichton Authentic Jersey to various injuries during his first season in Pittsburgh, caught 18 passes for 304 yards and a touchdown last season. After offseason ankle surgery caused him to miss the first half of the season, Green missed the team's final two regular season games and the entire 2016 postseason after suffering a head injury against the Bengals.
"He provided a component to our offense that was much needed," Tomlin said, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
Love the Pittsburgh Steelers? Then whatDarius Butler Authentic Jersey are you waiting for? Stay in the loop and sign up for our FREE Steelers newsletter!
Last month, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said that he is confident that Green will be OK and ready to go for the upcoming season. After providing a temporary spark to Pittsburgh's offense, Green was lost for the year after sustaining a head injury against the Bengals in Week 15.
"(We're) excited about being able to come back and play," Colbert said of Green, according to Steelers reporter James Wexell. PennLive.com writer Jacob Klinger added that Colbert feels that the Steelers "absolutely" got their money's worth in Green in 2016, as Pittsburgh signed the veteran tight end to a four-year, $20 million contract last offseason that included a $4.75 million signing bonus.
Green was certainly a playmaker whenhttp://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-indianapolis-colts-c-1_46.html healthy in 2016. He played a major role in three of Pittsburgh's wins during the team's seven game winning streak to close out the regular season, specially in the Steelers' victories over the Colts (two catches, 67 yards that set up two touchdowns), Giants (six catches for a career high 110 yards and a touchdown) and Bengals (five catches for 72 yards that included two big third down catches in the second half). He gained a quick rapport with Ben Roethlisberger, who praised Green's football acumen.
"He understands football," Big Ben said of Green during an interview with 93.7 The Fan near the end of the regular season. "When people have asked me about the improv and the ad-lib, the backyard type football, you either have it or you don't. Heath Miller had it, AB (Antonio Brown) has it. We've had guys that just get it, guys that when you're going out and playing backyard football, they're your first pick. Well, to me http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-anthony-barr-jersey-c-2_9.html right now, it looks like Ladarius has it."
Late last month, Green told Steelers.com's Teresa Varley that he has no plans to retire despite his rash of injuries that plagued his first season in Pittsburgh.

If Saints are considering Johnny
As someone who doesn't build NFL Brandon Fusco Youth Jersey rosters for a living, I was not going to be so arrogant as to proclaim I knew conclusively why Colin Kaepernick wasn't getting signed by an NFL team this offseason. Perhaps his unique skillset made him tough as a backup because you had to build an offense around him, which is an idea I heard floating around. Maybe his game really had dropped off so much he wasn't worth a flyer, asTodd Davis Youth Jersey some experts seemed eager to point out. Maybe his salary demands made it impossible to bring him in, which is something else I read.
Even when Josh McCown and Mark Sanchez (!) got new deals, I was willing to at least entertain the notion that Kaepernick was being passed over for a legitimate football reason. I didn't believe it, but I wasn't willing to say conclusively that the only reason Kaepernick was being passed over was for his peaceful anthem protest last season.
But with an NFL.com report that the New Orleans Saints are interested in Johnny Manziel, I'm willing to now say it conclusively: The only reason Kaepernick is being passed over is for his peaceful anthem protest last season.
Before we get to Kaepernick, let's briefly http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-rodney-hudson-jersey-c-2_9.html address this Manziel report, which first came from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. This is such a catastrophically bad idea that it almost seems silly writing about it. Manziel, the former Browns quarterback, has admitted to numerous problems with substance abuse issues and spent the last year of his life in a partying whirlwind broken up irregularly with vague promises to do better. He's still facing action from the league for violating its behavior policies.
And you want to put him in New Orleans? I lived in New Orleans for most of my early twenties, and love the city dearly to this day, but can say with complete confidence: New Orleans is not the place that a 24-year-old Johnny Manziel is going to buckle down, find a new focus and thrive. It's just not the place for that. To livehttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-kyle-wilson-jersey-c-1_27.html in New Orleans, you need a strong willpower, a good work ethic and an ability to know how to have fun without overdoing it.
None of those things sounds at all like our dear friend Mr. Manziel.

5 memorable, 5 miserable WSU moments at Joe Albi Stadium
HANK GRENDA (WSU photo)
5 memorable, 5 miserable WSU moments at Joe Albi Stadium
the staff of Cougfan.com
THE STAFF OF COUGFAN.COM
5:45 AM
THE COUGARS will be at Spokane's Joe Albi Jimmie Ward Kids Jersey Stadium on Saturday for their annual spring game. For the crimson faithful around in the '50s, '60s, '70s and early '80s, Albi represents more than just a sports venue. The place is packed full of WSU memories. Here are 10 – five mesmerizing and five miserable – that stand out most in the minds of Cougfan.com.
5 MESMERIZING ALBI MOMENTS
1. Nov. 23, 1968
Third-string Cougar senior quarterback Hank Grenda gets the Apple Cup start (pictured above) on a "hunch" by first-year head coach Jim Sweeney. The tall Canadian threw for two TDs, ran for a third, kicked a field goal and booted three PATs. He also punted. When it was over, 31,000-plus in Albi were nearly as stunned as the Washington Huskies. WSU won the game 24-0 and Grenda scored every point on the board.
2. Oct. 30, 1971
The two best backs on the West Coast, WSU's Bernard Jackson and Oregon's Bobby Moore (i.e. Ahmad Rashad), as well as two of the West's best quarterbacks, Cougar Ty Paine and Duck Dan Fouts, squared off in a wild one that saw Jackson rush for a whopping 261 yards and race 46 yards with a fake punt for the game-winning Cyrus Kouandjio Kids Jersey TD. The Cougars won 31-21.
3. Nov. 18, 1972
Down 10-3 in the third quarter, the No. 20-ranked Cougars rallied and romped the rest of the way to defeat No. 17 Washington, 27-10. The game is known for Gary Larsen's celebration sacks of Sonny Sixkiller, but the real story was the Cougar defense, led by Eric Johnson's three interceptions, and a Cougar offense that triple-optioned its way to 183 rushing yards and two Ty Paine TDs. Stat of the day: The teams combined for 13 fumbles, of which the Dawgs lost five and the Cougs two. WSU finished third in the conference behind USC and UCLA and No. 17 in the nation. This was all-conference lineman Bill Moos' last game in crimson.
4. Sept. 23, 1978
Arizona State, a vaunted program in those days under Frank Kush, was new to the Pac-10 and Sparky's first game in the league was against the Cougs at Albi. The Sun Devils were heavily favored, but WSU firebombed them, 51-26. A tremendous goal-line stand by the George Yarno-led Cougar D in the first quarter set the tone. And quarterback Jack Thompson cemented his legend as the fabled Throwin' Samoan withhttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-terrell-mcclain-jersey-c-2_64.html a conference-record six touchdowns – three passing and three rushing. The Associated Press and Sports Illustrated named him national player of the week.
5. Nov. 14,1981
The No.17-ranked Cougars hosted Cal at Albi in the second-to-last game of the regular season. The stakes were high – and so were the winds. Gusts reached 53 mph at one point, triggering a Cal punt that went for minus yardage. A Cougar win would be their eighth of the season – the most by a WSU team since 1930 – and it would set up a winner-to-the-Rose-Bowl-showdown with Washington the following week in Seattle. The Cougs didn't play especially well, but they didn't disappoint, winning 19-0. Tim Harrishttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-chris-jones-jersey-c-2_20.html rushed for 103 yards and the defense harassed Cal quarterback J Torchio relentlessly. The headline in the Spokane Chronicle the next day read "Cougs smell Roses."

Cleveland Browns Scribbles
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Scribbles in my Cleveland Browns notebook as the 2017 NFL Draft is a little more than a week away:
1. Patrick Mahomes. He is the newestMike Mitchell Womens Jersey quarterback name associated with the Browns. They worked him out in Berea. They have spent time with him. They are intrigued by his strong arm. Coach Hue Jackson said he wants a quarterback who can throw downfield. The Texas Tech product can do that. He loves to do that.
2. Mahomes played in the "Air Raid" system, heaving nearly 50 passes a game. He didn't have to worry about much but throwing the ball, running around. It's much like the system Johnny Manziel played in at Texas A&M. I have a hard time embracing Mahomes, who truly seems like a project. Most draft experts have him going in the first round. I have major doubts about him adapting to the NFL.
3. A few months ago, I heard the Browns were intrigued by Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer. That was before the NFL Combine. After that, very little Kizer/Browns talk. Kizer and Mahomes do have a few things in common. They both have strong arms. They both are athletic. In the last two years, Kizer ran for 18 touchdowns. Mahomes rushed Dexter Mccluster Authentic Jersey for 22 touchdowns. Jackson likes a quarterback with some mobility, both of these guys have it.
4. Mahomes or Kizer with the Browns? Who knows? There are big questions about both of them. But it's clear the Browns are intrigued by the possibilities of adding a big play type of quarterback.
5. For months, I've heard North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky as the Browns top quarterback choice. I've not heard anything different. But that doesn't mean the Browns will draft him, unless they plan to shock a lot of people (including me) and pick the Mentor product at No. 1. That said, ESPN's Adam Schefter and Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot both believe Trubisky is under serious consideration at No. 1.
6. I do know the NFL and TV networks want as much suspense about the No. 1 pick as possible, so don't expect the Browns to announce their selection when V.P. Sashi Brown meets with the media Wednesday at noon.
7. The big-name quarterback I don't hear linked to the Browns is Deshaun Watson. My guess is the lack of interest has to do with his lack of arm strength. At the NFL Combine, Watson was clocked at 49 mph on his throws. That's very low. Here's how some big names were clocked: Mahomes (60 mph), Davis Webb (59 mph), Kizer (56 mph) and Trubisky (55 mph).
8. For what it's worth, Cody Kessler was clocked at http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-miami-dolphins-c-1_228.html 55 mph at the 2016 Combine. He doesn't seem to have a very strong arm. Paxton Lynch led the way with 59 mph. Other readings from 2016: Jared Goff (58 mph), Carson Wentz (57 mph), Dak Prescott (54 mph), Kevin Hogan (53 mph) and Connor Cook (50 mph). It's rare to find any legitimate prospect at 49 mph, Watson's reading.
9. I've heard a few whispers of Nathan Peterman connected to the Browns, but I'm not buying it. The Pitt quarterback is much like Cody Kessler. He's a savvy quarterback, but doesn't have impressive arm strength.
10. Another name hooked to the Browns as a later round pick is Joshua Dobbs. Is it because he played at Tennessee? Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is connected to the school. Is it because he does have 35 starts (analytics loves that) and he is extremely smart? He is an astronautics/Aerodynamics major. He played in the Senior Bowl where Jackson and his staff served as coaches.
11. Dobbs did not play in an NFL-type offense. He said the NFL playbook won't be much of a challenge compared to the heavy academic load he carried in college. His velocity was 55 mph. Arm strength not a big issue, but he http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-chuck-foreman-jersey-c-2_35.html was pretty inconsistent at Tennessee.
12. You can go crazy with all the rumors. I've been trying to figure out what the Browns could do if they don't find a way to secure Trubisky. My guess is they want a strong-arm quarterback, which eliminates Watson and points toward Mahomes and Kizer.

Vikings' Terence Newman talks last season
DALLAS — Three months after the Minnesota Vikings concluded their macabre 2016 season, the analytical gears are still meshing in Terence Newman Youth Jersey the restless brain of Terence Newman.
The veteran cornerback and former social science major is chilling on a bench outside the basketball court at his neighborhood LA Fitness, down two games and anxious for a rematch. To kill time, Newman scouts the drinking fountains like he is breaking down film of an opposing wide receiver.
One fountain is slightly higher than the other. Newman estimates 90 percent of the thirsty gym rats will drink from the taller spout.
“I might be the third person. One's behindhttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-ty-sambrailo-jersey-c-1_13.html the other person at the tall faucet,” he said. “I'm like, that's odd. One's wide open. I'll go to the short one. It happens consistently over, over and over. That's just weird that people will wait.”
For the next hour, I unofficially crunch the numbers. Of the 16 sweaty guys and girls who hunch over for a cool sip, 12 gravitate to the taller fountain even though the shorter one is available.
Seventy-five percent. The night is still young.
“Don't judge me for this,” Newman says sheepishly. “I didn't realize how weird I was until last year. The thing is, I feel good about this concussion deal. They tell you about the mind going the opposite way. So I feel like I'm in a good space right now. My mind is still strong, firing on all those cylinders.”
Newman's attention turns back to hoops. Hehttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-michael-crabtree-jersey-c-2_55.html starts ticking off tendencies of the weekend warriors hoofing up and down the court.
“The guy in the gray shorts, he never goes left. That guy can ball. This one always pulls up for jumpers,” Newman explains.

Barfknecht: 'Nebraska's Danny Woodhead' lives up to nickname in Husker spring game
LINCOLN — The football player Nebraska coach Mike Riley likes to call “our Danny Woodhead” showed at Saturday's Red-White game whySylvester Williams Youth Jersey that nickname isn't just for fun.
Wyatt Mazour, a sophomore walk-on from Albion, Nebraska, flashed his running, pass-catching and tackle-breaking skills while rushing six times for 60 yards and a touchdown and hauling in six passes for 81 yards.
Mazour's stocky stature and low center of gravity at 5-foot-9 and 195 pounds — plus his speed bursts — can bring to mind Woodhead, a Division II All-American at Chadron State who is entering his ninth NFL season.
After the game, at least a dozen reporters surrounded Mazour, bringing a big smile from Riley as he returned to his office.
“Oh, my goodness. Look at that guy!” Riley exclaimed at the scene. “Nice job, Wyatt.”
Mazour offered a thank you and a smile in return. He also smiled in discussing his nickname of Woodhead, a player Riley once coached in the Hula Bowl college all-star game.
“It means a lot,” Mazour said. “Coach has been calling me that for a while. Just to be compared to someone that great who is in the Sean Smith Womens Jersey NFL and has done a lot in that league is just a blessing.”
His friends like the nickname for other reasons.
“They go, ‘What's up, Danny?' ” Mazour said, grinning. “They razz me about it, but it's all in good fun. It's a fun team to be around.”
Just being on the team this spring is fun for Mazour.
Last fall, he impressed the coaches enough with his special-teams work to earn a spot on the travel squad for the Indiana game. It would have been just the second game action in his career.
But in practice a few days before while on scout team, he suffered a concussion on an accidental helmet-to-helmet hit from linebacker Josh Banderas.
It proved to be a season-ending injury. The dizziness and sensitivity to light forced him to miss nearly a month of classes, and he couldn't drive for weeks. It took two months for a return to normal.
Mazour's weight dropped to 183 during the concussion recovery, but he now has bulked back up to 195.
“It's a blessing to still be able to play the sport I love,” he said. “I get out there and try to show what I've got every time, playing for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.” There's another comparison to Woodhead — a strong religious faith.
Mazour said he wasn't gun-shy entering spring practice, just frustrated by the amount of rust he had accumulated from sitting out.
“Then I built up my confidence and was just having fun,” he said. “Lasthttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-khairi-fortt-jersey-c-1_26.html year, I was pretty tense. This year, I was a completely different person. And when I play loose, that's when I play my best.”
Mazour played loose and got loose multiple times Saturday.
What looked like a no-gain running play turned into a 10-yard gain after Mazour broke four tackles. Another big cheer came off a short pass from freshman quarterback Tristan Gebbia that Mazour turned into a 27-yard gain.
Then after switching jerseys from white to red, Mazour capped a fourth-quarter drive by darting up the middle for a 5-yard touchdown.
The involvement of the running backs so heavily in Nebraska's redesigned offense is a hit with Mazour.
“A lot of teams sleep on it because the back just leaks out,” he said. “It's wide-open. I think you could see how important it is when you're not trying to force a pass downfield, and instead take the check-down and still get five to seven yards.”
Mazour had scholarship offers out of high school from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and Morningside, plus walk-on offers from http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joe-staley-jersey-c-1_30.html Wyoming and Iowa State after those schools filled their scholarships.
But he picked Nebraska.
“I just wanted to play,” he said. “But I knew I could play here. I don't think going to any other school would be as good as this one. It's helping me as a man, as a student and as an athlete.”
And Mazour is providing valuable running back insurance for Nebraska now, with the hope of a bigger role to come.

New York Giants: Offseason Workouts Bring Good and Bad News
As the offseason progresses and the draft nears, the Giants will begin their workouts this week.
The workouts begin with a focusCyrus Kouandjio Womens Jersey on the New York Giants defensive line, following skeptic tweets from Owa Odighizuwa and the departure of Johnathan Hankins.
The Good News
Per ESPN's Jordan Raanan, the New York Giants have managed to retain one defensive lineman, Kerry Wynn. The four-year veteran out of Richmond, has had a modest career, but proves to be a valuable commodity as a backup.
Despite Wynn not having the flashiest numbers of the bunch, he's an asset, and he's only costing the Giants $1.797 million for the 2017 season. He will need to fight for his spot on the roster, since his contract is not guaranteed as a restricted free-agent.
Another Big Blue hooray, is the presence of Owa Odighizuwa around the New York Giants facility. Recently, tweets emerged stating that the rotational defensive end “needed some time away from the game.”
This put the Giants organization in a frenzy, and sent Jerry Reese racing to find out the cause and concerns of the former UCLA product.
Luckily, Reese was able to sway the emotional Odighizuwa towards staying with the team, and although his tweets sent concern through theTony Romo Womens Jersey organization, he seems to have found his peace of mind elsewhere.
Reports have also seen B.J. Goodson taking a little extra time to improve his game prior to training camp.
With Goodson beginning to realize he needs to take the leap from par to starting caliber linebacker, he has hit the gym weeks in advance, attempting to blow our minds away come September.
I for one, think that Goodson has what it takes to develop nicely into a run stuffing linebacker, despite recent mock drafts taking Zach Cunningham out of Vanderbilt.
Nonetheless, here comes the bad news.
The Bad News
Well, there's no way to say this nicely, but the Giant's have a few more holes than previously expected.
The departure of “Big Hank,” left a literal gaping hole in the middle of the defensive line. How will Jerry Reese combat that? Probably by signing http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-chris-jones-jersey-c-2_20.html a seasoned veteran through free agency, but it's possible he looks to the draft for answers.
Switching over to the offensive line, there are still a ton of question marks.
With Weston Richburg and Justin Pugh being the only established players on the line, it leaves us hoping the rest of the make-shift line will find their sea legs.
D.J. Fluker is on a one-year deal, but who knows if he will be the monster he once was in college. Ultimately, he's a low-risk investment, with a ton of upside. Unfortunately, upside doesn't necessarily translate into quality in the NFL.
Flowers, John Jerry and Bobby Hart are all average, maybe even subpar, depending on who you ask.
With the anticipation that http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-menelik-watson-jersey-c-2_49.html a lineman will be drafted in the first round of the NFL draft, competition is likely, and welcomed, leading up to the pre-season.

2017 NFL Draft: Minnesota Vikings on the clock at No. 48
This is one in a series that covers each team, offering viewers information for homework, suggestions and then the opportunity San-Francisco-49ers Authentic Jersey to make a draft pick.
When the NFL Draft begins selections in Philadelphia April 27, the
Minnesota Vikings will sit out the first day and make their first pick at No. 48 overall
Here is an in-depth look at the team's needs, offseason changes, potential best fit and the selections by NFLDraftScout.com's experts.
Who would you pick and why?
Top five needs
--1. Right guard: Head coach Mike Zimmer said he has four starters he's comfortable with on the offensive line, adding, "We got to figure out the right guard position." The Vikings released Brandon Fusco and Mike Harris, the starters at the position in recent years. Fusco, who rose from late-round pick to earn a lucrative long-term deal a couple years ago, became a major disappointment because of injuries and ineffective play.
--2. Running back: Even after signing Latavius Murray to help fill the hole left by Adrian Peterson's departure, the Vikings are eager to tap intohttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-chuck-foreman-jersey-c-2_35.html the deep pool of talented, versatile runners available in this year's draft. The Vikings have only shifty, third-down back Jerick McKinnon as a reliable backup at this point. The other running backs on the roster are C.J. Ham, who didn't play as a rookie free agent a year ago, and Bishop Sankey, a third-year pro who played in 29 games for the Titans from 2014-15, but didn't play a game while with the Chiefs a year ago.
--3. Tight end: The Vikings made a strong push to sign Jared Cook, but weren't able to land him. Presumably, they're still on the lookout for help in that area since no other tight end was signed. They have three tight ends under contract, but have only one -- Kyle Rudolph -- who stands out. David Morgan, mainly a blocking tight end, was drafted in the sixth round a year ago mostly because the team figured it would lose Rhett Ellisonhttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-customized-jersey-c-2_57.html in free agency this year, which it did. When he's at full strength, Ellison is a much better, more versatile blocker than the developing Morgan. The other tight end on the roster is Kyle Carter, a practice-squad player who went undrafted out of Penn State a year ago.
--4. Defensive tackle: With Sharrif Floyd's future in doubt and only Linval Joseph signed beyond 2017, the Vikings are looking to bolster their defensive tackle positions. Floyd is battling back from potential nerve damage suffered during knee surgery last September. The Vikings thought he'd only miss about four games, but he ended up missing the final 15 games. An utter lack of durability has dogged Floyd since the Vikings took him in the first round in 2013.
--5. Wide receiver: The Vikings let Cordarrelle Patterson and Charles Johnson leave via free agency. They also got only one catch out of 2016 first-round draft pick Laquon Treadwell. They aren't giving up on Treadwell, but with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen as the only reliable receiving threats, the team would be wise to keep looking for more targets for Sam Bradford.
Best fit
--Dion Dawkins, G, Temple. The Vikings need a right guard and have been burned too many times with the philosophy of drafting Day-3 guards and trying to mold them into serviceable players down the road. They need to invest more into the offensive line, which has been a weakness for too long. No first-round pick and a weak pool of linemen to sift through makes it difficult to bolster the line this year. But the 6-foot-4, 314-pound Dawkins could be a good addition. He's not the top guard available, but he's a physical player with a nasty side that's similar to what the Vikings like about left guard Alex Boone. Dawkins also is experienced, having started 43 games at left tackle. He played guard at the Senior Bowl and has the skill set to move to the right side.
-Rob Rang: Dan Feeney, G, Indiana. One of the few positions of concern for the Vikings is at right guard, where Feeney excelled over his career, showing the combination of agility and power to make an immediate impact.
--Dane Brugler: Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma. It is anyone's guess where Mixon and his baggage land, but the Vikings have shown interest.
--Pat Kirwan: Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State. Kirwan explains this pick in his accompanying video.
(Kirwan, Jim Miller picks based on last Friday's mock on SiriusXM Radio. Listen to their next mock Friday, April 21, on SiriusXM NFL Radio channel 88).
--Frank Cooney, IMO: Dion Dawkins, G, Temple. HeSammie Coates Womens Jersey proved himself capable at tackle in college and looked good at guard in the Senior Bowl. Indiana's Dan Feeney had more college experience at guard, but Dawkins is a tough guy with more upside.
Your chance to go on the record
OK, it's your turn. Tell us in the comments section who you would pick and why. Check out top 1,000 players rated by NFLDraftScout.com, including combine and pro day workouts, biographies, scouting reports.

Le'Veon Bell buying his fullback, Roosevelt Nix, a puppy
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon BellGreg Lloyd Youth Jersey is currently working on an extension that many believe will set a new market for the running back position. As a sign of gratitude for all the hard work they put into help making him great, he's never been shy about showing his blockers love and that includes fullback Roosevelt Nix.
Nix tweeted on Tuesday morning he couldn't wait for Bell to send him a picture of the puppy he's getting him, so presumably he's buying http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-terrell-davis-jersey-c-1_20.html his fullback a dog as a sign of appreciation.
Despite missing four games due to suspension in 2016, Bell managed 1,884 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns in 2016. Meanwhile, Nix has played in 25 games the past two years and has 4 catches for 21 yards and no rushing attempts.
However, his primary function has been leading for Bell out of the I-formation in the instances where the Steelers use a heavier set. He's also an important contributor on special teams for the Steelers, playing in 414 combined special teams snaps in the past two seasons.
For his efforts, Nix will be back in 2017 onhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-stacy-mcgee-jersey-c-2_43.html an exclusive rights free-agent contract. And now it appears the 24-year-old Kent State product will have a new best friend to boot.

Jon Kendle: Forgettable ‘days' for football legends
Team tributes for Sammy Baugh, Jack Butler and Alphonse “Tuffy” Leemans end in varying degrees of misfortune.
By Jon Kendle / Special to GateHouse Ohio Media
Throughout the years, pro football has becomeMichael Hoomanawanui Jersey one of the most marketable sports in the world. Advertising and promotions are a large source of revenue for the National Football League and its 32 clubs. That being said, it makes perfect sense that when a franchise wants to honor a great, longtime player or coach for his service, a local company steps up and sponsors the celebration.
Commonplace in the 1940s, '50s and early '60s was for local auto dealers to provide cars to star players. The football greats would be showered with a variety of gifts as well as having their pictures splashed across the game's program cover. For three Hall of Famers — Sammy Baugh, Jack Butler and Alphonse “Tuffy” Leemans — being honored with their own special day had both memorable highlights and a few subsequent low points to follow.
“Sammy Baugh Day” occurred on Nov. 23, 1947, when the Washington Touchdown Club honored the legendary quarterback with a new 1948 Packard station wagon during a ceremony before the Washington Redskins' game Mike Purcell Jersey against the Chicago Cardinals at Griffith Stadium. “Slingin' Sammy accepted the $3,000 gift, then proceeded to put on a performance that justified the pre-game tribute. He completed 25 of 33 passes for 355 yards, tossed a record-tying six touchdown passes and led his team to a commanding 45-21 victory during that unforgettable day.
Four days later, Baugh was driving his shiny new vehicle home from a celebrity appearance in Philadelphia. Baugh crashed into a culvert near College Park, Md., when he tried to avoid a car that had swerved into his lane. Baugh was shaken up and suffered a cut on his forehead and knee, but was otherwise uninjured and didn't miss any action on the football field. His car didn't fare as well, with significant damage to both passenger-side doors and the rear fender that required several hundred dollars in repairs.
Although Baugh wrecked the automobile he was given, he at least got to drive away in his gift. The same wasn't true for Butler during his finalhttp://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-e-j-manuel-jersey-c-1_20.html season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Class of 2012 Hall of Fame great was honored with a “Jack Butler Day” by a local promoter during a game against the New York Giants on Oct. 25, 1959 at Forbes Field. Butler was presented with a car at halftime but since he had a second half to play, the promoter took back the keys and the car for safe keeping.
Coming out of the locker room, the Steelers trailed 14-10, but moved to within one point on a third-quarter field goal by Hall of Famer Bobby Layne. The game, however, was put on ice by another Hall of Famer when Giants' linebacker Sam Huff recovered a Pittsburgh fumble in the fourth quarter and returned it for the game-winning score. As if losing wasn't bad enough for Butler, imagine his shock when after the game he learned that there were no keys nor car waiting for him to drive home. The car presentation at halftime had been all for show, and he never saw the car again.
For Leemans, things had started well on “Tuffy Leemans Day.” A crowd of 55,051 showed up to honor the halfback/fullback at the Polo Grounds in New York as his Giants took on the crosstown-rival Brooklyn Dodgers on Dec. 7, 1941. The Giants' star was presented with a $1,500 defense bond, a silver tray and a watch during a 10-minute presentation before kickoff. “Tuffy” then delivered a sincere speech in which he thanked all the fans in attendance, everyone who presented him with gifts and praised his teammates and all associated with the Giants organization.
The celebration ended and things went downhill once the game began. The Dodgers handed the Giants a one-sided 21-7 defeat and Leemans managed to gain a meager 18 yards rushing. To taint “Tuffy Leemans Day” further, it was noticeable throughout the game that the stadium's public address announcer was continually paging military personnel to contact their offices. Immediately following the game there was a mad scramble to get all men from the Army and Navy out of the stadium and report to their stations. It was at that point that everyone at the venue was made aware that the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor and the United States was under attack. Unfortunately for Leemans, his “day” wasn't ruined only on the field but is forever marred by being associated with one http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-tyrone-crawford-jersey-c-2_26.html of the darkest days in U.S. history.
Jon Kendle is archivist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In a countdown to the NFL's Centennial celebration on Sept. 17, 2020, Kendle will share unique and interesting stories starting from the league's founding in downtown Canton to the present day.

Marlins pitcher Jeff Locke likely out for April with biceps tendinitis
Miami Marlins pitcher Jeff Locke is Shaun Hill Kids Jersey likely to miss at least the first month of the season as he recovers from biceps tendinitis, according to manager Don Mattingly.
Locke threw off a mound Saturday morning for the first time in more than a month, showing progress from an injury suffered at the http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-heath-miller-jersey-c-2_29.html start of spring training.
"I don't know what we'll do next, but for today it was good," Locke told reporters of the session, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "I feel a lot better than I was feeling before, that's for sure."
Mattingly said there is no timetable for Locke's return to the Marlins.
"Just going through it in the past, it'll be a little while," Mattingly said. "Probably all the way through April, late April, May, middle of May. Something like that."
Locke was 9-8 with a 5.44 ERA in 19 startshttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-heath-miller-jersey-c-2_29.html and 11 relief appearances for the Pittsburgh Pirates last season. He signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Marlins during the offseason.

“I respected him. I liked him. I always thought of him as a friend down deep,” Brown recently said of Rooney, via Bengals.com. “We understood the trials and tribulations that go along with participation in the league.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Eli Rogers is Reliable But No Martavis Bryant
Former Pittsburgh Steelers wideout, Martavis Bryant, is hoping to be reinstated soon, and the Steelers should be looking to bring him back.
After a whole season without Martavis Bryant, theEric Reid Womens Jersey Pittsburgh Steelers are now faced with the question of whether or not they want to keep him on the roster. Chris Wesseling reported that Bryant is looking to be reinstated sooner rather than later, Pittsburgh may be faced with the decision quicker than they imagined.
Eli Rogers had an excellent season in 2016, putting up 48 catches for 594 yards and three touchdowns. Maybe it isn't Antonio Brown numbers, but for a rookie receiver who was a no name player, finishing as the second wideout in the fifth best passing offense in the NFL isn't bad.
Rogers is a reliable receiver. Opposite of Antonio Brown, he's a valuable option. But he's definitely no Bryant. With a playmaking http://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-bruce-smith-jersey-c-1_6.html quarterback like Ben Roethlisberger leading the charge, having a deep threat like Bryant adds an aspect to this offense that makes it one of the best in the league.
During his 11 regular season games, Bryant caught 50 passes for 765 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 15.3 yards per catch. Bryant's speed is exactly what Roethlisberger loves to throw to. With him and Brown on the outside, Pittsburgh passing game may be as dangerous as they come next season.
It makes the Steelers decision a difficult one. Givinghttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-tony-dorsett-jersey-c-2_42.html Rogers a shot won't upset anyone, but it could mean missing out on an explosive offense. Where they could see both players working out is the slot, which would give Bryant a chance on the outside while Rogers works from the inside.
Pittsburgh loved Bryant. He was a diamond in the rough they never expected to turn into the player he did. But now, he's put himself on thin ice and the Steelers in a situation they never wanted to be in.
Chances are they give Bryant another shot and let Rogers develop as the slot. Rogers' hands are some of the best on the roster. He's the perfect fit for the slot, and with the questions surrounding Sammie Coates, he'd be a much better option as the third receiver.
Rogers may be the future, but as young and talented as Bryant is, there's no point in getting rid of him. Pittsburgh's past shows they usually don't tolerate off the field issues, but when you have a shot at a Super Bowl like the Steelers do, adding as many superstars as possible is important. You can't take chances when a championship is on the line.
There's a way to work Rogers and Bryant into the lineup. People may believe they need to choose one or the other, but they don't. Let Bryant use his speed on the outside and Rogers play the slot. For Roethlisberger, that's a matchDwight Lowery Kids Jersey made in heaven.
Pittsburgh's offense is set for an explosive year. But they don't need to decide on one player to keep it a threat. Instead, they should work both in and stack the receiving core with options.

Shannon Sharpe explains how Russell Westbrook's 51-point night cost the Thunder
Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook put up another eye-popping scoreline Wednesday night, setting a playoff Michael Griffin Youth Jersey record for the most points scored in a triple-double performance -- but the Thunder lost to fall into an 0-2 hole in their series with the Rockets.
On Thursday's "Undisputed," Shannon Sharpe argued that despite his production, Westbrook ultimately cost his team a vital win by refusing to stop shooting.
"For three quarters in the ballgame he http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-eli-rogers-jersey-c-2_72.html shot them to a lead, 12 points at one time. He went to the bench with about two minutes left in the third quarter, and they gave all of it back except three points.
"And then, in the fourth quarter, hehttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-tom-jackson-jersey-c-1_19.html shot them out of the ballgame. He went to the bench, he had 36 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds [through three quarters]. He was 13-of-25."

6 prospects the Tennessee Titans should target in the NFL Draft
Needs: The Tennessee Titans hold the fifth and 18th pick in the draft thanks to last year's move down from No. 1, putting them in positionDavid Decastro Youth Jersey to address two of their biggest needs early on draft night. Their needs include cornerback, wide receiver, safety, linebacker and guard. A trade down is very much on the table for the second straight year, especially since they don't have a second-round pick.
Picks: First round (5, 18), third round (83, 100), fourth round (124), fifth round (164), sixth round (214), seventh round (236).
Davis should be the No. 1 player on the Titans' board despite injury concerns. He's a more dynamic athlete than Mike Williams is, and after the catch, he's also better. With the way Tennessee's offense is designed and built upon short, quick throws, Davis can turn seemingly minimal gains into big plays.
Marcus Mariota would take his game to another level with a player like Davis on the outside. It's something he desperately needs, particularly with Tennessee lacking size at wide receiver.
Hooker is neck-and-neck with Jamal Adams in terms of being the top safety in this class, but for the Titans, he should be slightly ahead. Tennessee David Decastro Jersey signed Johnathan Cyprien this offseason to play strong safety, leaving a hole at free safety. Adams is better when playing closer to the line of scrimmage – much like Cyprien – which is why Hooker fits better in Tennessee.
He can be a true center fielder in the deep-middle, taking away big plays from opposing offenses. His skills are comparable to that of Ed Reed, which is high praise for someone just entering the NFL.
Awuize is a guy who could sneak into the first round, but he'll most likely land towards the top of the second. That bodes well for the Titans in the event that they trade down from 18, still having a need at cornerback despite signing Logan Ryan. Awuzie will be an early starter for whichever team drafts him, and he'd be a good fit in Tennessee.
He thrives in man coverage and has sufficient speed to stay with them on crossing routes, which is something the Titans covet in their cornerbacks. They've showed significant interest in him, too, meeting with him twice.
Lamp is the top guard in the class and will probably be the first one taken. The Titans aren't desperate for help on the offensive line, but Lamp would be an upgrade over Quinton Spain on the left side.
His versatility is a big plus, too, providing the ability to play tackle in a pinch should Jack Conklin or Taylor Lewan get injured. He'd be a great selection at No. 18 if Tennessee is able to land a wideout at No. 5.
Despite not boasting great size for a linebacker, Rileyhttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-peyton-manning-jersey-c-1_3.html can be a contributor as a weak-side guy. He has good enough speed (4.58 40-yard dash) and short-area quickness to hold up in coverage, making him an intriguing prospect in the mid-rounds.
The Titans could use a player like him on defense, lacking talent at linebacker. He's a modern-day 'backer who can make plays all over the field for the Titans.
Mariota could use as many targets as he can get, considering how little talent the Titans had at wide receiver last season. Even if they land one of the top guys in the first round, Jones would be a good addition in the third round, if he were to tall that far, of course.
There's a chance he goes early-to-mid-second round, which would cause the Titans to miss out on him. However, he would fit nicely with Mariota as a slot guy. He has the ability to take a short pass and turn it into a big gain whenhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-matt-mcgloin-jersey-c-2_58.html going over the middle, showing good toughness on contested catches. He has the most receptions in NCAA history (399), largely because his targets came on short routes and screen passes. But he can have success in the NFL thanks to his solid hands and good agility in the open field.

Vikings have big decisions looming on Teddy Bridgewater and Anthony Barr
May 5 is going to be an important Jahri Evans Womens Jersey day at Winter Park. That is the day the Vikings have to decide if they want to pick up the fifth-year options on two former first-round picks: linebacker Anthony Barr and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
At this time last year, it would have been a no-brainer that the Vikings were going to exercise those options. Now, that might not be true. The Vikings' decisions will alter the direction of the franchise.
Barr has been selected to two Pro Bowls, but Eric Reid Youth Jersey last season Mike Zimmer openly admitted that he wanted more from Barr in terms of on-the-field play. Barr didn't always bring it, even though he did make some plays that make your eyes pop.
In reality, the Vikings are most likely going to exercise the deal for Barr, but he has a lot to prove. If Barr can get back to his old self, there is no reason the Vikings can't have the top defense in the league. It would be hard for me to imagine the Vikings not wanting Barr around, but the consistency doesn't come back after this season, Barr may hit the free-agent market.
Bridgewater's situation is tough. He was drafted http://www.authenticbillsstore.com/shop-by-players-cyrus-kouandjio-jersey-c-1_16.html with the 32nd overall pick to be the Vikings' franchise quarterback. All signs pointed to him taking a big leap forward this season, but he never got the opportunity due to a terrible injury.
Now, the Vikings have to make the decision if they want to pay him a lot of money without knowing if he is going to get completely healthy.
Zimmer has said he doesn't want Bridgewater going anywhere, and with how the quarterback has helped form this team and organization, it is hard to believe that the Vikings won't keep him around.
According to CBS Sports, Barr's option being http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-tony-romo-jersey-c-2_3.html picked up is a slam dunk, but they are not so sure about Bridgewater, again because of injury. Although it is worth noting that fifth year is guaranteed for injury.

Colts Still Searching For Another Cornerback Opposite Vontae Davis
INDIANAPOLIS – It's probably the most obvious remaining need for the Colts in 2017.
Who will line up opposite Vontae Davis this fall?
That's anyone's guess.
When the NFL Draft gets underway Benson Mayowa Kids Jersey three weeks from Thursday, the Colts will be monitoring the cornerback group very closely.
“We no question need a young corner,” Owner Jim Irsay says.
“We still need some work in the secondary, absolutely we do,” GM Chris Ballard adds.
Since the Colts acquired Davis via trade just prior to the start of the 2012 season, the team's No. 2 cornerback has really never been set in stone on a consistent basis.
Greg Toler battled injuries throughout his three seasons with the Colts.
Guys like Jerrraud Powers, Cassius Vaughn, Darius Butler, Jalil Brown, Patrick Robinson, Antonio Cromartie and Rashaan Melvin have all Latavius Murray Youth Jersey trotted out there to man the other side of the field opposite Davis.
And there's a good chance another name will be joining that bunch in 2017.
While Melvin, who the staff remains high on, and Darryl Morris are still on the roster after filling in adequately last season, Pagano knows where the premium talent is likely to come.
As a former defensive backs coach, Pagano likes what he sees in the '17 draft class in the secondary.
“This is a really good draft when it comes to secondary,” Pagano says. “With the corners and safety prospects in this draft, you're going to get a good player. There's great length, there's great speed, guys with ball skills, guys with the skill set we're looking for (at corner). It'll be up to us how quickly we can develop those guys and get them on the field."
How the Colts will handle that No. 2 cornerback spot this season changed a bit in the past month.
First, Patrick Robinson was released at the start of free agency. Robinson's one-year stint as the starter opposite Davis ended after an injury riddled season with the Colts.
Then, Darius Butler re-signed as a safety. Butler's dayshttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-harrison-smith-jersey-c-2_15.html of seeing some cornerback action, mainly in the slot, appear over.
That leaves the Colts in this current situation with some unknown.
Who starts at corner with Davis in 2017 is still a mystery nearly a month into free agency.
Before the Colts get closer to that answer, Pagano knows what he must get out of his top corner playing in a contract season in 2017.
“We need consistent play out of Vontae,” Pagano says. “We need him to be there week-after-week-after-week. And we need him to be there for 16 weeks and play at a level that we know he can play at week after week. That's the expectation for Vontae. He knows that.
And that other corner spot?
“With the draft, with the guys we have coming back,” Pagano says, “it'll be great competition.”

New book Solitude makes the case for being alone
Author Michael Harris argues for the need to disconnect from others in his book Solitude: A Singular Life in a Crowded World
Dr. Edith Bone's captors kept her locked away forhttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-karl-joseph-jersey-c-2_21.html seven years and 59 days, alone in dark, putrid prison cells, often freezing and close to starving. Yet to her guards' frustration, the isolation did not break her.
On the contrary, Bone, who was imprisoned in communist-era Hungary by officials who accused her of being a spy, spent her waking hours translating poetry into the various languages she knew. She took daily walks in her mind through all the cities she had visited, and formed tiny counting beads and letters out of stale bread, so that she could make calculations and spell out ideas. After she was finally released in 1956, she described herself as emerging “a little wiser and full of hope.”
Bone's extraordinary ability to withstand solitary confinement is recounted in the opening pages of Vancouver writer Michael Harris's new book, Solitude: A Singular Life in a Crowded World, which makes the case for learning how to be comfortable being alone.
Harris, author of the bestselling and Governor-General's Award-winning The End of Absence, examines how media technologies and cultural norms deter us from experiencing real solitude. He argues the ability to be alone is undervalued, yet vital, especially in an era when many of us are constantly connected through e-mails and social media, but at the same time, lonelier than ever.
While the common cure for loneliness is to develop more connections, Harris believes solitude is another remedy worth pursuing. He spoke to The Globe and Mail from his home in Vancouver.
What is it about certain people like Edith Bone that makes them better able to withstand being alone?
I think some people have built a house inside their chest where they can live. It's a question of whether or not you have a rich interior life. Ultimately, whether you're in solitary confinement as Dr. Bone was or you're an 18-year-old working at a Starbucks in New York, as wonderful as your connections are, you have to have that rich interior life to retreat to and also just to have a sense of faith in your own life.
Dr. Bone was an exceptional woman. She trained as a physician. She spoke six languages. She was no slouch. She also lived in the 1940s, well before long-distance communication was a thing, long before we had this ambient connectivity in our lives. In a way, she Scott Tolzien Youth Jersey was luckier to be born at a time when disconnection and solitude were a fact of ordinary life.
I think we have fewer opportunities to build that house in our chest these days because we're constantly looking for some affirmation online, or some act of digital social grooming.
How does solitude differ from loneliness?
Loneliness is failed solitude. Solitude is a state of productive and contented time alone, whereas loneliness is an anxious emotion that derives from the suspicion that you're supposed to be somewhere else or you're supposed to be in the company of others.
We often encounter loneliness first, as kind of an instinctual reaction, and if we move through loneliness, we arrive at solitude on the other side.
In the book, you mention a University of Virginia study that showed people would rather give themselves electric shocks than spend time alone with their thoughts. What is it about being alone that makes people so uneasy?
I think people don't have faith in their interior lives. We've been groomed since birth to believe that whether or not we have a good idea or whether or not we're good people is dependent upon the crowd. It's dependent upon whether we're retweeted, whether or not we're loved by others. In our schools, we're trained to think of collaboration as the ultimate social good, and we don't spend a lot of time learning how to daydream.
So there's a bias in our culture against spending time alone. People are afraid of loners, they're always trying to bring people into a state of constant social access. Part of that bias is constructed by corporations. If you think about the technologies we use, there's nothing profitable, as far as Silicon Valley companies are concerned, about you disconnecting. Nobody's going to encourage you to log off, in the same way nobody at McDonald's is going to encourage you to eat broccoli. So you have to make those kinds of decisions yourself.
We may ultimately need our governments or non-government organizations to step in and help us out with these things, in the same way they stepped in to help us out with smoking.
What is the point of protecting the ability to be alone?
I think of solitude as a territory, a resource that is under attack by a culture at large, but more specifically, by companies that profit by consuming our solitude and turning it into data or advertising revenue. The benefit is if we hold on to that resource, we then develop for ourselves a rich, interior life that consists of three parts. The first is the ability to arrive at fresh ideas. You don't get a fresh idea at a conference table or by crowdsourcing it. The second is self-knowledge and self-awareness, which is to say figuring out what you like and what you believe, independent of what Amazon thinks you might like next. The third, and perhaps paradoxical, benefit is closeness to others. We have to have a genuine experience with solitude to be closer to the people we love.
Why is that? How does being alone affect our relationships?
The best way I can think of explaining it is if you go to Paris and you send a text message every 10 minutes to your partner, you're never really http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-brandon-mebane-jersey-c-1_6.html missing that person. If you wait a month and write a single love letter, there's a richer experience of that person that is called up. In order to desire something, you have to be without it, by definition.
And it's a cliché, but you can't really be ready to love someone else unless you've come to terms with who you are as an independent person. This is something self-help books have been telling us for some time, and it's essentially true.
You spent a week alone, without phones, Internet or television, at a cabin in the woods on Pender Island in British Columbia. What did solitude feel like?
The first two days of it, you go through withdrawal symptoms. You become so addicted to the dopamine hits of social grooming that when it's taken away from you, it doesn't feel healthy or right for the first little while.
Then you come through that. You're basically forcing yourself to live through the discomfort and loneliness. Your body and mind have incredible resources, though. By day three, you're walking through the woods, you're noticing aspects of nature that had completely passed you by before.
In my case, I started having long conversations with my grandfather, who died the year I was born. From a position of solitude, you can really delve into http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-harrison-smith-jersey-c-2_16.html what that person meant to you.
So how did you feel at the end of the week?
I was definitely ready to come back. I think testing myself in that way gave me faith in my own faculties. It gave me the ability to every day say, “I don't actually need to pick up my phone for the first two hours after I wake up. The world doesn't fall apart.” But that's not something a week in the woods gives you automatically. That's a practice, a habit you have to develop every day. In the same way, I don't really believe that a seven-day fast is going to fix all your health issues. These things are usually better dealt with through small daily changes.
In this climate where we have what's been called a loneliness epidemic, how does one become better at being alone?
There are personal changes, but there are also larger government and managerial changes that need to take place. We've seen parts of Europe where companies and whole countries push for no e-mail after 6 p.m., and things like that. When there's a perpetual opportunity for connection, you end up with an arm's race where you're sitting at the dinner table, thinking, “I'd better check my e-mail because I know my boss is going to check.” You have to have limits imposed by people who are in charge. You actually do need your boss to say, “I don't want to hear from you after 6 p.m.” Or you have to have, maybe in government agencies, a manufactured level of solitude.
You can also have companies begin to recognize that if they want ingenuity and original thinking from their employees, they must design solitude into their lives. We have to connect with others and collaborate, of course. But that has to be balanced by a walk in the woods.
Getting back to the kinds of changes individuals can make, what other measures have you taken to carve out solitude in your own life, besides not checking your phone first thing in the morning?
I think I became a lot more comfortable telling people I wasn't going to go hang out with them. Some people can't handle a request for alone time. The one or two friends who are like that, they've kind of been sacrificed. That soundshttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-ernie-stautner-jersey-c-2_51.html awfully harsh, but you know what I mean. It comes down to being comfortable claiming your solitude and insisting that it has a value in and of itself. You don't have to make up an excuse. It's okay to not want to socialize.
We're constantly trained to believe that not socializing is anti-social behaviour, but I think that is actually a mistake that we're making. Solitude is social behaviour in that it makes us healthier, more caring social creatures because then when we do interact, it's more meaningful.

A reason to be optimistic about 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead
Defensive end Arik Armstead's potential is equally enticing as it's been frustrating. The 49ers' first-round pick in 2015, so far, hasn't beenCordy Glenn Youth Jersey an impact player on the defensive line, despite showing signs of becoming a potential building block.
That's because he only played a third of the snaps as a rookie before last season ended after Week 8 when he opted for surgery on his injured shoulder. He suffered the injury the second weekend of training camp after looking like the best player on the field during practice.
But there's a good reason to optimistic http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-tyrone-crawford-jersey-c-2_26.html about Armstead heading into year three, after just 2.5 sacks in eight games in 2016 while playing through the injury:
Armstead wound up with 24 pressures (hurries plus sacks) on 171 pass rushing snaps, according to Pro Football Focus, giving him the scouting service's top pass-rushing grade for the position.
His continued development would be a boon for San Francisco's defense that ranked last in opponents' yardage and scoring in 2016. He should become a key figure in the team's transition to a 4-3 defense that utilizes 3-4 personnel.
Armstead figures to compete for a spot in Robert Saleh's new base defense and should be a mainstay in sub packages, which are used about 70 percent of the time, pass rushing from the interior. San Francisco last season ranked 19th with 33 sacks and 28th in net yards passing per attempt.
If Armstead was one of the best interior pass rushers last season while injured, the 49ers have to be excited about the idea of having him healthy http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-benson-mayowa-jersey-c-2_4.html with a better cast around him. And if he takes step in his development alongside DeForest Buckner, who looks noticeably bigger and stronger entering his second season, San Francisco's front four might be better than many expect in 2017.

Davenport also said that the Packers will likely draft a linebacker and not sign Hodges. Thompson normally goes after guys like Hodges, but thehttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-16-scott-tolzien-jersey-c-1_7.html Packers believe Ryan and Martinez will get better and if a guy like T.J. Watt is available for the Packers in the draft, they will likely select him than bring in Hodges on the cheap.

His job was to protect students, but he sexually assaulted them instead
A former Moss Point High SchoolBrandon Mebane Youth Jersey campus police officer will serve 20 years in prison day-for-day for sexually assaulting one of the students he was supposed to protecting.
A jury last week convicted Kevin Sylvester Williams on charges of touching of a child for lustful purposes and sexual battery, all while in a position of trust or authority.
Judge Kathy King Jackson sentenced Williams to 30 years in prison, with 20 years to serve day-for-day and the remainder on post-release supervision on a sexual battery charge. She sentenced him to 15 years on the touching charge, but the two sentences will run concurrently, leaving Williams 20 years to serve day-for-day.
The judge fined Williams a total of $5,000 and ordered him to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
She was a teen
The victim was a sophomore at Moss Point Chuck Foreman Authentic Jersey High at the time of 2009 crimes.
She said Williams had a habit of making sexually inappropriate comments to students. And she said Williams often called her out of class to his office and touched her breasts and buttocks.
He had sex with her after he drove her to a home off Mississippi 57. He gave her $200 afterward.
Suspicions rise
In trial testimony, one teacher said she became suspicious of Williams because he kept calling students out of class. She reported her concerns, but Williams remained on the job.
The victims in two other pending cases also testified.
One of the victims was a student at Colmer Middle School at the time of the crime, police said. The girl told authorities Williams would drivehttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-eric-kendricks-jersey-c-2_9.html to her school and was in uniform when he would check her out of class. From there, the girl said, Williams drove her to his mother's house and sexually assaulted her.
Williams claimed he had gotten the child out of class because she had soiled herself. Williams denied any wrongdoing.
Preying on young girls
“As a campus police officer, this defendant was tasked with the responsibility of keeping the children of the Moss Point school system safe,” Assistant District Attorney George Huffman said. “He chose to ignore that responsibility and instead used his position to prey on young girls.”
Assistant District Attorney Shon Ellerby added: “This effectively ends his ability to harm any other child.”
District Attorney Tony Lawrence said Williams simply “abused his position as a police officer, school security officer, father and stepfather.”
“He violated the oaths a security officer, as a law http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-jeremy-kerley-jersey-c-1_26.html enforcement officer and his role as a father,” Lawrence added. “Twenty years day-for-day shows no one is above the law. If you harm children, no matter who you are, you will be held accountable.”

What If Cowboys' 2017 First-Round Pick Is A Travis Frederick-Level "Reach"?
The Cowboys were widely ridiculed for picking Phil Taylor Authentic Jersey Travis Frederick in 2013, not necessarily because Frederick was viewed as a bad player, but because it was felt he would have been available much later in the draft.
Dan Kadar, SB Nation's draft guru, gave the Cowboys a prescient A+ grade for the Fredrick pick at the time, but even he talked of a reach.
Most post-draft grades were not as kind, with the majority of comments calling the Frederick pick a reach, as virtually nobody had expected Frederick to be a first-round pick.
Scouts Inc., the guys providing the prospect rankings for ESPN, had Frederick at No. 70.
Mel Kiper had Frederick at No. 87 on his draft board.
On Mike Mayock's list of the top 100 prospects in the draft, Frederick checked in at No. 92.
Matt Miller of Bleacher Report had Fredrick as the last player on his 100-player strong big board.
But it wasn't just draft analysts panning the Frederick pick. Here's Pro Football Talk's take at the time.
A day after the draft, ESPN Dallas reported thathttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-charles-haley-jersey-c-2_58.html Travis Frederick was the No. 22 player on the Cowboys board, a claim that was met with much incredulity at the time. It wasn't until the Cowboys' 2013 draft board was inadvertently leaked almost a month later (and transcribed by my good friend rabblerousr) that the Cowboys' claim was proven right: Travis Frederick was the 22nd-ranked player on a draft board that had 19 players with a first-round grade.
Travis Frederick meanwhile has been to three Pro Bowls, has made second-team All Pro twice, first-team All Pro once, and the Cowboys made him the highest paid center in the NFL last year.
Just because some draft analyst or over-eager Twitter scout ranks a player lower than where he was picked doesn't automatically make the pick a reach.
The Cowboys pay their scouts to find players that will fit their system, and those scouts put in way more work into the evaluation process than any draft analyst out there.
And that process will inevitably result in a draft board that differs from the many draft boards published in the lead-up to the draft.
NFL fans constantly ask their teams to "follow their draft board." But what if following the draft board results in the team drafting a player that public perception had ranked much lower?
"REACH!"
Sitting where they are at the bottom of the first round, the Cowboys would be happy to see a player with a first-round grade fall their way. But if that doesn't happen, they'll pick one of the highest-graded players remaining on their board, evenhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-menelik-watson-jersey-c-2_49.html if that player might have "only" a second-round grade - and even if that player may be ranked much lower elsewhere.
Just going off their list of official pre-draft visitors, what if the Cowboys make a player like DE Tyus Bowser their top pick, even if many see him as a second-round prospect, and some might not even know who he is? Or if they take a CB like Chidobwe Awuzie or Fabian Moreau with their top pick, players that not many are expecting to be taken in the first round?
Would you be able to keep your cool and "trust the process"?
Perhaps not. But keep in mind that every year we'll see a wide range of assessments of draft classes. Some of them will offer a reasonable assessment of a given team's draft, others offer a much more radical take penned by authors clawing and scratching for relevance, who often have no particular football expertise, and have John Jenkins Youth Jersey nothing but snarky commentary and click-generating headlines to offer.
If the Cowboys pull another Frederick, recent history suggests that the perennial nattering nabobs of negativism will fall all over each other proclaiming the pick another reach by the Cowboys, only to change their tune as soon as they publish their first re-draft of the 2017 NFL draft.

The top NFL draft surprises and busts in TCU history
With the 2017 NFL draft happening on Thursday, TCU has seen its fair share of former athletes drafted and play in the league. While some have Bud Dupree Womens Jersey gone on and made a big impact in the sport and have become huge playmakers on and off the field, others didn't have quite that success. Either through injury, criminal reasons or performance, they never quite reached the NFL standard.
Here's a look at TCU's top three biggest draft surprises and busts:
Surprises
LaDainian Tomlinson: When someone thinks of TCU football, L.T. easily comes to mind. In his time at TCU, Tomlinson helped the Frogs win their first bowl game, set a NCAA FBS record for most rushing yards in a single game, won the Doak Walker Award as the nation's best running back and was a finalist for the 2000 Heisman Trophy. When he finished his collegiate career, he was ranked sixth in NCAA Division I history with 5,263 rushing yards.
And his success kept going when he made the pros. Tomlinson was drafted as the fifth overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers. Tomlinson spent nine seasons with the Chargers before playing his final two seasons with the New York Jets. Before he ended his 11-year career, he was selected to five Pro Bowls, was an All-Pro six times, and won two rushing titles (2006 and 2007). When he retired he ranked fifth in career rushing yards (13,684), seventh in all-purpose yards (18,456), second in career Cameron Heyward Youth Jersey rushing touchdowns (145), and third in total touchdowns (162).
Andy Dalton: Andy Dalton is another former Frog who shaped and molded TCU into the football program it is today. After redshirting his freshman year, Dalton came back to lead TCU to an 11-2 season his sophomore year, a perfect regular season his junior year and finished it out with an undefeated season his senior year. Dalton held school career records for wins (42), passing yards (10,314), pass attempts (1,317), completions (812), and completion percentage (61.6) until Trevone Boykin surpassed him.
Dalton is one of six quarterbacks in NFL history to have thrown for over 3,000 yards in each of his first three seasons. He is also one of only five quarterbacks to have passed for at least 20 touchdowns in each of his first three seasons. He is also the only quarterback to lead the Bengals to four consecutive playoff berths, and one of five quarterbacks to lead his team to the playoffs in each of his first four seasons.
Dalton continues to give back to TCU and frequently visits coach Patterson and his players.
Jerry Hughes: Hughes demonstrated success early on during his time at TCU. He was one of four true freshmen to start in 2006. He played in all 13 games as a sophomore, recording at least one tackle in each game. But, he took over as a full-time starter his junior year. That season he recorded 15 sacks, 18.5 tackles for a loss, 6 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions and returned one of those picks for a touchdown. He led the nation with his 15 sacks. Senior year he turned up the momentum again, tallying a career-high 54 tackles and 11.5 sacks. Hughes was recognized as a unanimous first-team All-American.
Hughes was selected 31st overall by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2010 NFL draft. He was the first Horned Frog selected in the first round since Tomlinson. He was also the first TCU defensive player selected in the first round http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-20-darius-butler-jersey-c-1_10.html since Bob Lilly, who was selected 13th overall by the Dallas Cowboys in 1961. During Hughes' rookie season, he appeared in 12 games making six tackles. Hughes was traded to the Bills in 2013 and finished his first season by making 46 tackles, 10 sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games with one start. In 2015, the Bills and Hughes agreed to a five-year contract worth at least $45 million.
Busts
Trevone Boykin: Boykin brought back the spark in Horned Frog football. In 2014 as the starting quarterback, Boykin passed for 3,901 yards and threw 33 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, while also rushing for an additional 707 yards and 8 touchdowns. He led the Frogs to a #3 ranking and a 12-1 record. That season he also finished in 4th place in the 2014 Heisman Trophy voting. In 2015, Boykin returned as the starter and passed for 3,575 yards with 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Boykin had the potential to be a high pick for TCU in the draft. However, the night before his senior bowl game, Boykin was arrested for punching a cop outside of a bar in San Antonio. While he managed to sign with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent, Boykin could have been drafted higher and had the potential to sign with anyone.
Daryl Washington: Washington was selected 47th overall by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2010 NFL draft. He made the Pro Bowl and was named a second-team All-Pro in 2012 after making 134 tackles with an interception and two forced fumbles for the Arizona Cardinals. But, three seasons of substance-abuse violations and a guilty plea to an aggravated assault charge led to Washington being suspended indefinitely. While he is making a case to be reinstated, the odds don't look to be in his favor.
Aaron Brown: As a freshman he ran for 163 yards in a nationally televised game against Utah. On the year, he rushed for 758 yards and six touchdowns, as well as three receiving touchdowns. His efforts helped the Frogs win the Mountain West Conference championship and he was named MWC Freshman of the Year.
He was drafted 192nd overall in the 6th roundhttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-craig-mager-jersey-c-1_10.html by the Detroit Lions in the 2009 NFL Draft. During his first NFL preseason game, Brown scored two touchdowns. However, on September 4, 2011, he was waived by the Lions. He was re-signed on November 28 and released again on December 27. Brown later signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in February 2012, but was once again waived in August 2012.

Keeping up with its listings
If you've been “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” over the years, there's a good chance you'll recognize this home in Studio City. The opulent estate was used to depict the front facade and grounds of the main Kardashian-Jenner compound during previous seasons of the reality TV show.
On and off the market about as frequently as the show's sisters change their looks, the Italianate-style home is currently back on — this time at $8.995 million.
Set on nearly an acre, the 7,800-square-foot househttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-brandon-fusco-jersey-c-2_34.html boasts such details as ornate woodwork, hand-plastered Venetian walls, statues and murals.
Terraces, a saltwater swimming pool, lawns and landscaping complete the grounds.
The property also has been used for the HBO shows “Rome” and “True Blood.”
He takes a price cut
Actor Julian McMahon of "Nip/Tuck" fame has sold his Malibu home of about a decade for $3.55 million.
The property came on the market last year for $4.395 million, and after a few nips and tucks was most recently listed at $3.85 million.
The blue-exterior house has vaulted ceilings, walls of windows and 3,654 square feet of interior space.
Lush landscaping surrounds a blue-tiled swimming pool and spa. A volleyball court, lawn and mature trees fill out the park-like property.
McMahon, 48, appeared last year on the series “Hunters” and “Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.”
She sells house of charm
Constance Zimmer of “House of Cards” and “UnREAL” has sold her home in Studio City for $2.15 million.
The Spanish-style two-story sits behind wrought-ironhttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-steve-atwater-jersey-c-1_21.html gates. Vines along the facade and a Juliet balcony above the front door give the 2003 home an Old World vibe. This is what real estate agents called a “charmer.”
The approximately 3,620 square feet of living space contains a formal living room with a fireplace, a library with custom built-ins and a center-island kitchen. French doors in the great room and pink-hued dining room extend the living space outside.
Including a detached guesthouse, there are five bedrooms and five bathrooms.
Zimmer, 46, has scores of television credits, including “The Newsroom,” “Entourage” and “Grey's Anatomy.”
Big man near the beach
Often it's hard to tell where sports stars play based on their real estate purchases. A recent case in point: Tiago Splitter of the Philadelphia 76ers has picked up an ocean-view home in Malibu for $3.25 million.
Situated on a cul-de-sac, the single-story contemporary features marble and hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and vaulted ceilings — a detail that likely appeals to the 6-foot-11 center.
The approximately 4,100 square feet of living Nate Allen Kids Jersey space contains three bedrooms and four bathrooms. A great room with a fireplace and a speakeasy-style bar sits off the kitchen.
Splitter, 32, was on the move earlier this year when he was traded by the Atlanta Hawks to the Sixers. The Brazilian-born big man won an NBA title in 2014 with the San Antonio Spurs.

Darren McFadden to appear at Fort Smith preps banquet in June
By Times Record Staff
Darren McFadden, running back for the Dallas Cowboys and former standout for the Razorbacks, will be the featured speaker at the Peyton Manning Youth Jersey Times Record's 2017 Best of River Valley Preps banquet.
The Heisman finalist and fourth overall pick by the Oakland Raiders in the 2008 NFL Draft will help honor the area's top athletes and coaches at the June 1 event at the Fort Smith Convention Center. Doors will open at 6 p.m. for the 6:30 dinner.
The event will honor more than 300 athletes and coaches across 17 sports in the seven-county region of Sebastian, Crawford, Franklin, Logan, Scott, LeFlore and Sequoyah counties.
“We wanted to bring these great student-athletes a speaker with star power who has first-hand knowledge of the work, dedication and perseverance that it takes to rise to the top, even while overcoming various life challenges,” said Crystal Costa, publisher of the Times Record. “McFadden certainly fits the bill.”
This Dallas Cowboy carries a legacy as one http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-dontrelle-inman-jersey-c-1_19.html of the top athletes in Arkansas history. In a recent fan poll by seccountry.com, McFadden, 29, was chosen by fans as the greatest Arkansas athlete in school history.
While fans can sometimes be fickle, his numbers back up the fondness fans continue to have of him.
A star at Oak Grove High School in central Arkansas, McFadden started with a bang in his freshman year at Arkansas. He ran for more than 1,100 yards and 11 touchdowns. By the end of his first year, he was already establishing records in the SEC as one of only seven players to ever run more than 1,000 yards as a freshman. He was named SEC Freshman of the Year.
He continued to dazzle fans and coaches throughout his college career. He claims the honor for the two largest single-season rushing performances in Razorback history for his sophomore and junior years. With a record of 785 carries and 22 100-yard games, he is the most decorated football star in Hog history.
For his college career, he claims two second-place finisheshttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-chuck-foreman-jersey-c-2_35.html for the Heisman, two SEC Offensive Player of the Year awards, two first-team All-American honors and three All-SEC honors, and only Hershel Walker tops his numbers in rushing.
“We are thrilled to have landed such a well-known and beloved athlete. Of course, it only adds to the appeal that he has such strong Arkansas roots,” said Brian Sanderford, sports editor. “Even though his career with the Cowboys is still developing, he has this enormous legacy throughout Arkansas.”
“We are just so pleased to bring him home for this very special night,” Costa said.
McFadden is in his ninth season as an NFL running back. The Cowboys recently re-signed him to a one-year contract. He had other interest but opted to stay with the Cowboys.
While injuries have limited some of his star power, McFadden has more than 28 touchdowns, 5,400 rushing yards and 2,100 receiving yards.
During the Best of River Valley Preps http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-john-randle-jersey-c-2_39.html event, McFadden will share his experiences and insights, participate in a moderated Q&A with some audience questions, and take photos with top winners and VIPs.

Five Fun Facts about Casey Hayward
This offseason, we want you to get to know our players a little more off the field.
While you may know cornerback Casey Brandon Coleman Kids Jersey Hayward had a Pro Bowl season leading the league in interceptions (seven), here are five fun facts about number 26. Read
Casey3: Similar to Malcom Floyd's family ties, Hayward's brother has a pretty familiar name. “I've got another brother named Casey. We have different moms, but we have the same name.” If you think the fun stopped there, think again. “And our dad's name is Casey so there's three of us.” Hayward said the most challenging part of the three of them having the same name comes when they're in the same Eli Rogers Kids Jersey room. “When someone says ‘Casey!' we all turn around.”
Undercover Poet: While Hayward is a fan of all types of music, certain genres have inspired him to hone his own skills. “I love to write poems. I won't share them with people, but I like to do it. I like stuff that rhymes and things with meaning so I like to write even to music sometimes.” Hayward said he does it all for fun and won't be dropping a mixtape a la Melvin Ingram any time soon.
Pro Bowler: Much like his teammate Denzel Perryman, Hayward is a big fan of bowling. He said his mom tried to put him in a league when he was http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-cameron-heyward-jersey-c-2_18.html young but it didn't last long. Then when he got to the NFL, he would bowl regularly with his former Packers teammates and got pretty good at it. “I think I'm a decent bowler; my high score is a 240. I had like seven strikes in a row and messed it up on the tenth frame!”
Frequent Binger: When he's not on the field, Hayward can be found at home catching up on some of his favorite television shows. “I binge watch so many shows on Netflix! If it's a top 10 show, I've probably watched it.” He cites Revenge, Bloodline, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder and House of Cards as his favorites. “I binge watch so many shows they're not all even coming to my head!”
Man's Best Friend? Not So Much: If you're having Hayward over for dinner any time soon and have a four-legged friend, you better hide it. “I don't really like dogs so if people say they have one, I ask if they can put it away as soon as I come in. Even if they say their dog isn't going to bite, I'll say, ‘That's fine! But would you stillhttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-18-peyton-manning-jersey-c-1_8.html mind putting him up?'” A dog bit Hayward when he was a kid hence why he has an aversion. He said if he has kids someday, they're going to have to settle for a goldfish.

Re-grading Vikings' 2016 draft: WR Laquon Treadwell
With the 23rd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Antonio Gates Authentic Jersey Minnesota Vikings selected wide receiver Laquon Treadwell out of Mississippi.
In his rookie season, Treadwell played in nine games and started one.
It wasn't great as Treadwell caught just one pass for 15 yards, extremely underwhelming for anyone, let alone a first-round pick.
There's no debating that in his first season, thehttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-shaun-hill-jersey-c-2_53.html Treadwell pick has “bust” label slowly creeping in. But there is some semi positive news.
Treadwell is only 21 years old, so there's plenty of time for him to turn this around. And with the departures of Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson, Treadwell should so a bump in playing time by default along with getting a full offseason with quarterback Sam Bradford.
All of this could change, of course, if the Vikingshttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-joe-berger-jersey-c-2_18.html decide to draft a wide receiver in the draft or add a veteran wide receiver (like Anquan Boldin) after the draft.

Fort Mill duo Worth Gregory and J.T. Boyd hope to bolster town's NFL ranks
The road to the NFL isn't a free and easy joyride down Route 66. It's a long journey with twists, turns, and fleeting opportunities. Fort Mill's J.T. Boyd and Worth Gregory will tell you it takes preparation and perseverance.
The teammates at East Carolina's daily Keith Mcgill Youth Jersey routines for the past few months have consisted of training, lifting... and training some more. Boyd, a bearded, burly, 6-foot-4 300-pound offensive lineman, started his training earlier this year at New Jersey-based Test Football Academy, where his day consisted of a six-hour workout – speed and agility in the morning and weights in the afternoon - with a brief lunch break squeezed in between. The Nation Ford grad isn't stressing about the process.
“This is what I've been doing my whole life since I was a little kid,” he said. “I'm just down to one last opportunity to put on a showcase of what I can do.”
Any scouts interested in Boyd have plenty of material to study. By his redshirt sophomore season in 2014, he was starting in an offensive unit that averaged 533 yards of total offense per game and ranked fifth nationally. Boyd was selected second-team All-American Athletic Conference, and was honorable mention in 2015. In the classroom, he was an ECU Honor Roll and Dean's List performer.
“I love working hard. It's what I do, it's what offensive lineman do,” said Boyd. “It's part of the brand of being an offensive linemanDelvin Breaux Authentic Jersey and it's what I try to do every day.”
During his career at ECU, he played against teams like Florida and Virginia Tech that consistently put players in the NFL every year.
“I'm confident in my ability to play against the best,” said Boyd. “I think I belong there.”
Boyd said he wasn't hearing much from NFL teams, but he knew a good performance at ECU'S pro day in late March would increase his standing with scouts. All 32 NFL teams sent representatives to ECU for the pro day workout.
Boyd and Gregory, a standout punter from Fort Mill High, worked out for the hometown Carolina Panthers on April 7 to showcase their skills. Like Boyd, Gregory has tried to stay calm during the busy process. Before Friday's date with the Panthers, he punted for the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins but said he could care less which team signs him.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound kicker worked out with NFL punters like 49ers' Bradley Pinion and Lions' Sam Martin in the last couple of months.
“I'm new to all of it so I'm happy that I'm able to talk to these guys that have been in my position to help me go through what I'm going through right now,” said Gregory.
Like Boyd, Gregory's work ethic has stood out at ECU.
“He will not take any shortcuts in getting to that final destination,” said Shannon Moore, ECU's special teams coach. “He's very organized about everything that he does from school work to his workout sessions.”
Gregory has an outgoing personality - a quality that will come in handy on an NFL roster. Moore said Gregory went to ECU coaches before the seasonhttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-heath-miller-jersey-c-2_29.html and requested to room with the team's true-freshman long snapper the night before games to help him cope with nerves. The Pirates' punting unit didn't have a single bad snap all fall.
“They respect and respond to things he feels like will help the team,” Moore said. “Anything an organization would ask him to do I feel he would jump at the opportunity to represent them.”
Gregory's high school coach, Ed Susi, said Gregory spent plenty of time perfecting his craft while he was a Fort Mill Yellow Jacket.
“He knew what he had to do to succeed,” said Susi. “He worked his butt off on all kinds of kicks.”
Gregory spent his freshman year (2012) at Alabama as a walk-on with a squad that demolished Notre Dame to win the BCS National Championship. Since he was not on scholarship, he later decided to transfer and found a home at ECU.
Gregory earned a spot on the second team All-AAC roster in 2016, and started every game in his three years of eligibility. He averaged 43 yards per punt over the course of his career. Among conference foes, only Memphis's Spencer Smith had a better average through those three years.
He was annoyed to miss out on the NFL Draft Combine and several senior all-star games.
“It's kind of pushed me to work harder and show everyone why I think I should have been in those things,” said Gregory.
Boyd and Gregory are now shooting for the opportunity to join Denver Broncos defensive end, Vance Walker, as Fort Mill-bred NFL players.
“When people think of the NFL in our area they start looking at Rock Hill,” said Gregory. “It'd be great to have some guys from Fort Mill in http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-darrius-heywardbey-jersey-c-2_42.html there other than Vance. It would be awesome for the whole town.”
J.T. Boyd started for two years at guard, before moving to center his senior year at East Carolina. His versatility and experience should help his quest to land on an NFL roster. Photo courtesy of East Carolina Athletics

Broncos coach Vance Joseph: Losing CB Kayvon Webster was huge
We see players switch jerseysDarius Butler Youth Jersey every free-agency period. This offseason, one departure was tough on new Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph.
“Losing Kayvon (Webster) was huge,” Joseph said, according to the team's official website.
The Broncos lost out on Webster when he opted for a bigger opportunity in Los Angeles, signing a two-year contract with the Rams. A movehttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-corey-liuget-jersey-c-1_9.html that reunited him with former Denver defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
Webster served as a backup cornerback during his time in Denver. In four seasons, he played in 54 games and recorded 83 tackles, 1 interception and 14 passes defended.
Joseph said the team will first look to CB Lorenzo Doss to take over for Webster.
“(Lorenzo Doss) can do the job, but he has to prove it.”
Teams can never have enoughhttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-alex-boone-jersey-c-2_54.html cornerbacks in today's pass-happy NFL. The Broncos will presumably draft a cornerback in the 2017 NFL Draft to add more depth to their secondary.

Drew Brees tells Bobby Hebert Focus is TEAM not CONTRACT
Saints quarterback Drew Brees isEli Rogers Youth Jersey heading into the 2017 season on the final year of his current contract and has said that he does not want to negotiate a deal until AFTER the season. It has caused a bit of a stir amongst the Who Dat Nation. Some fans are thinking if the Black & Gold can't get over the 7-9 hump for a 4th straight year, Brees might decide to take his talents elsewhere.
“I want the focus to NOT be about my contract," Brees told Bobby Hebert, Deuce McAllister, and Deke Bellavia. "I want the focus to be Greg Lloyd Youth Jersey about this team, this year and create that sense of urgency. For me and for them. I don't care about anything else right now. As far as I'm concerned I could never play football again after this season. I want this season to be my absolute best, and I want it to be the absolute best for our team. So don't look into that any further then I am focused on the here and now. And being in the present and focused on this team this year, that's it.”
Brees is definitely looking forward to the upcoming NFL draft. With the Saints having 5 picks in the top 103 selections, he is hoping the team canhttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-34-josh-ferguson-jersey-c-1_19.html bring in the right pieces to help push the team back in playoff contention.
"We've got opportunities to really get some talent that can make an instant impact. Now so more than ever in our league you see rookies coming in and playing key roles in the team's success. I'm excited to see how that plays out for us and certainly I'd love top that be postions players that could make impacts now."
Meanwhile, all you coffee fans out there can win a chance to meet Brees. Dunkin' Donuts of Louisiana is hosting a Twitter sweepstakes for five fans to win a cup of java with Drew.

Search for the next Rodgers: Saints' conundrum in drafting Brees' successor
METAIRIE, La. -- Andrew BrandtDeangelo Williams Authentic Jersey doesn't remember exactly how vocal it was, but he did "feel kind of a rumble from the coaching side of the room" before the Green Bay Packers drafted Aaron Rodgers with the 24th pick in 2005.
"Like, ‘Are we really gonna spend our top pick on someone that won't help us this year, maybe not next year, maybe not the year after, maybe never?'" said Brandt, who was a vice president with the Packers at the time, when ironman starter Brett Favre was still just 35 years old.
"But then more of the managerial http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-carnell-lake-jersey-c-2_52.html side of the room was like, ‘Listen, these scouts spend seven months putting the board together. Let's trust the board. This is our highest-rated player. Yes, he plays a position where we have the most durable player in the history of the league. But this is what our board is telling us.'"
It's a dilemma that all teams with a Hall of Fame quarterback face at some point, including the New Orleans Saints this year with 38-year-old Drew Brees: Do they find a worthy successor in the draft, or do they find someone who can help the star win another Super Bowl before he's done?
Teams such as the Arizona Cardinals with Carsonhttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-21-vontae-davis-jersey-c-1_11.html Palmer, the New York Giants with Eli Manning, the Pittsburgh Steelers with Ben Roethlisberger and the Los Angeles Chargers with Philip Rivers have similar choices to make.
It's an even tougher decision this year, because most draft analysts aren't very high on the 2017 quarterback class, with question marks surrounding every prospect from Deshaun Watson, Mitchell Trubisky and Patrick Mahomes II on down.
"I think all you can say about any of these guys is that they have a chance -- not that they're the answer," said ESPN analyst and former Indianapolis Colts general manager Bill Polian, who faced the dilemma when the Colts had Peyton Manning.
Polian said the Colts might have drafted Andy Dalton in 2011 if they had known the extent of Manning's neck injury.
"But I'll say with the exception of Deshaun Watson, none of these guys [this year] are Andy Dalton," Polian said. "For a number of reasons, notCustomized Jersey ability-wise. You just don't know who they are. ... None of these guys are Drew Brees coming out of college, that much I can tell you.
"So I guess the short answer is, it depends on the year."

Martavis Bryant conditionally cleared for preseason participation after drug suspension
The Pittsburgh Steelers got a big-time Emmanuel Lamur Womens Jersey weapon back into the fold just in time for the NFL draft.
Wide receiver Martavis Bryant has been "conditionally" reinstated to the NFL after serving a season-long suspension, general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement.
The Steelers' release said Bryant may join the team at its training facility and participate in preseason "meetings, conditioning work and similar activities."
Bryant has missed 20 regular-season games in two seasons for multiple substance abuse violations, but in the 21 games he did play, he proved one of the NFL's most potent deep threats with 15 total touchdowns (one rushing).
Colbert said he appreciates that Bryant has takenhttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-shaun-hill-jersey-c-2_53.html necessary steps to get back, but adds: "We also understand that this is just the beginning as he works to return to the team and meet all the conditions of his reinstatement. We look forward to working with Martavis to ensure that he is mentally and physically prepared to contribute to our efforts on the field, while also maintaining proper balance to keep his life in order off the field."
One expected stipulation is that Bryant won't be able to practice until he secures a counselor in Pittsburgh, where he'll also undergo frequent drug testing. A source close to Bryant said he earned positive marks in a New York meetinghttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-eric-reid-jersey-c-1_20.html with NFL council and has remained clean while training in Nevada, where he gained about 10 pounds of muscle.
Bryant is not issuing a statement at the moment but is eager to get back to football and showcase his latest speed-and-size ability, the source said.
The Steelers consider Bryant's presence a bonus but know he must regain trust over time. Bryant returned from a four-game suspension to finish 2015 with 50 catches for 765 yards and six touchdowns. But the yearlong suspension surfaced in March, forcing the Steelers to add playmaking depth through free agency with Darrius Heyward-Bey and tight end Ladarius Green.
The Steelers could still add a playmaking piece in the draft, which begins Thursday.
When in the lineup, Bryant is the Steelers' No. 2 receiverRussell Okung Youth Jersey and vertical threat to open up operating lanes for primary option Antonio Brown.
The Steelers reconvene for OTAs in late May, in which Bryant hopes to participate.

Swarming defense marks 49ers' minicamp practice
SANTA CLARA
Coordinator Robert Saleh said earlier La'el collins Youth Jersey this month that the theme of his 49ers defense this year will be “extreme physicality.” On the second day of minicamp, reporters got a glimpse at what he meant.
There is no tackling or hitting allowed in the voluntary session, but the 49ers defenders did everything short of that. One of the emphases this offseason appears to be rallying to the football -- something for which Saleh's one-time team, the Seahawks, are known -- and on Wednesday ball carriers were swarmed by fivehttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-dak-prescott-jersey-c-2_44.html or six defenders all of whom were intent on trying to pry the ball loose. At times it looked like a pride of lions jumping in on an injured buffalo.
Among those doing the swarming: middle linebacker NaVorro Bowman, who did not appear limited in one of his first practices since suffering an Achilles tear last year. The group succeeded once in dislodging the ball with running back DuJuan Harris, although Harris was able to get the ball back.
The top play of the practice for the defense may have been cornerback Rashard Robinson's leaping interception on a sideline pass from Brian Hoyer that was intended for receiver Rashad Ross.
With Tramaine Brock no longer on the team and http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-menelik-watson-jersey-c-2_49.html with Jimmie Ward playing safety, Robinson is a frontrunner to start at cornerback this year. He and Dontae Johnson were in the starters roles on Wednesday.
Here was the two-deep depth chart on defense. Arik Armstead, who has been lining up at the Leo end spot, among other positions, in walk-throughs, did not take part in the team session as he is still coming back from shoulder surgery. Eli Harold also would have figured into the mix at the strong-side linebacker spot, but he is dealingJairus Byrd Womens Jersey with a toe injury,
LDE: Tank Carradine, Zach Moore
NT: Earl Mitchell, Mike Purcell
DT: DeForest Buckner, Quinton Dial, Chris Jones
RDE (Leo): Ronald Blair, Aaron Lynch
SLB: Ahmad Brooks, Dekoda Watson
MLB: NaVorro Bowman, Brock Coyle
WLB: Malcolm Smith, Ray-Ray Armstrong
FS: Jimmie Ward, Vinnie Sunseri
SS: Eric Reid, Jaquiski Tartt

Emmanuel Sanders: Paxton Lynch has shed “deer in headlights” look
When last we heard from BroncosEli Rogers Womens Jersey receiver Emmanuel Sanders about the quarterback competition in Denver, he was saying all the right things about both of the candidates. He still is, but with more detail.
“I was just watching Trevor [Siemian] walk around and he's walking around with that same confidence,” Sanders told reporters on Wednesday after a minicamp practice. “You put him in the shotgun, and he can sling it around. Youhttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-27-winston-guy-jersey-c-1_15.html see Paxton [Lynch] and you see an opportunity at hand being a young guy last year.
“Paxton was like that deer in the headlights, walking around big-eyed. Now, he's more relaxed. It's going to be interesting to see how Paxton takes his second year. Hopefully he gets that Memphis swag back. [We'll] see those two guys compete and see who wins the job.”
Whoever wins the job will be slinging it around, and that makes Sanders very, very happy.
“Obviously, we're going to throw the ball a lot more,” Sanders said. “There are a lot of underneath routes. Today we were able to throw the ball down the field. I think Bennie [Fowler] and Paxton connected on a deep ball. . . . I'm excited. I remember [Mike McCoy's] offense from 2014. I labeled it, ‘Wide Receiver Avenue.' It's very pass happy and that's everything as a receiver you could want. I'm excited.”
Broncos fans should be excited, too. The http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-denzel-perryman-jersey-c-1_15.html offense didn't do enough to complement the team's defense last year, and the Broncos didn't make it to the playoffs. A passing game with punch could make all the difference that Denver needs.

Chaz Green 'needs to be pushed', will compete to be starter
The seat Chaz Green is occupying is http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-jarius-wright-jersey-c-2_44.html becoming noticeably warmer in 2017.
With the retirement of right tackle Doug Free, it was largely assumed the Dallas Cowboys would finally elevate their former third-round pick (2015) to the starting post -- followed by potentially either drafting for depth or bringing in a veteran to help out. The team chose the latter, signing Byron Bell out of free agency on a one-year that contains some interesting escalators.
For Green, it means not only will he not be gifted the starting job -- he'll have to fight tooth-and-nail for it.
"Obviously we've got a guy we drafted Anthony Barr Youth Jersey in the third round, Chaz Green, who we feel like has a great opportunity to win that job," said EVP Stephen Jones, via The Dallas Morning News. "But he needs to be pushed. It's going to be a competitive situation."
Well, that's certainly saying the least.
Per Todd Archer of ESPN, the Cowboys' contract with Bell includes not simply a base salary of $1M, but also a $500,000 bonus if he becomes the team's starting right tackle -- playing, at minimum, 75% of the offensive snaps to receive that full payout (with a reduced bonus of $250K if he plays 60% of them).
Weighing in at 340 lb., he could also earn up to another $450K in weight bonuses, which is more than enough motivation for him to come in gunning for the throne on the right edge of the vaunted Cowboys' offensive line.
The Cowboys' season may be over, buthttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-ian-williams-jersey-c-1_24.html they're not mailing it in. Don't miss any breaking offseason news, take a second to sign up for our FREE Cowboys messenger!
Should Bell achieve said feat, his age plus the aforementioned performance could also see him playing for the Cowboys beyond 2017, putting Green in a backup role as he enters the dusk of his rookie contract -- one that's already seen him often unavailable due to injury.
Also unluckily for Green, the re-signing of former first round pick Jonathan Cooper also plays into Jones' plan to keep everyone on their toes competition-wise.
"I think obviously what we did with Cooper was a big deal for us," Jones said. "He can play those inside positions, center and guard. And Bell has played all over the place. We think that's great depth for our line. It'll make it a competitive situation and we think obviously helps make us a better football team when you've got thatSteve Atwater Womens Jersey kind of competition going on internally with each position.
"At the end of the day we're going to try to get our five best offensive linemen on the football field."
Often vilified unjustly for his play, the fact is Free left some sizable shoes to fill.

Cordarrelle Patterson draws sweet smiles as host of children's hospital prom night
Former Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Pattersonhttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-jaquiski-tartt-jersey-c-1_25.html is trying to endear himself to a new fan base in Oakland. And the lightning-quick return man appears to be off to a good start.
The former first-round pick, who joined the Oakland Raiders this offseason after four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, recently served as the emcee for the Raiders 2017 UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Prom. And from Jason Verrett Youth Jersey the looks of it, a good time was had by all.
The Raiders posted a highlight video of the event, which featured Patterson mingling with the attendees, escorting them in on the red carpet and overall just having a great time. Check it out:
Patterson, who widely is considered one of the most dangerous return men in the league, is hoping this fresh start in Oakland will produce better results as a wide receiver after a mostly disappointing tenure with the Vikings in that regard.
He earned two Pro Bowl appearances and two All-Pro honors in 2013 and 2016 for Minnesota, but has 1,316 yards receiving through his four-year career.
Patterson earned All-SEC honors forhttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-shaquil-barrett-jersey-c-1_37.html the Vols in 2012. He signed a two-year, $8.5 million free-agent deal with the Raiders in March after leading the league in kickoff-return average (31.7 yards) in 2016.

Jerick McKinnon training
Before moving on to his offseason routine, Jerick McKinnon had to spend some time reflecting on his 2016 season – not so much to focus on what went wrong, but on what he could learn.
Injuries and struggles on the offensive lineDrew Kaser Womens Jersey made McKinnon's first full year as a feature back a rough ride. He averaged just 3.4 Yards Per Carry, a significant drop off from 4.9 YPC over his first two seasons.
According to Sporting Charts, only four running backs with more than 100 carries had a higher percentage of runs stuffed in the backfield. And when he ran the ball up the middle, the Vikings' runner nicknamed “Jet” was stalled for 2.6 YPC.
McKinnon probably watched Oakland and Dallas running backs glide through gigantic holes like a kid stuck inside with the flu while his friends played outside. But blaming teammates – publicly or privately – usually doesn't do much good. So instead he looked at the in-season tweaks that led to an improvement over the last six games in which he averaged a solid 4.1 YPC.
“My first year I was more of a patient guy, setting my runs up, but with the way everybody was switching in and out [on the offensive line], it made me get used to making that one cut sometimes,” McKinnon said over the phone on Friday. “Toward the end of the season I was more of a one-cut guy. At the beginning, I wasn't doing anything different than I did the first two seasons. So after turning the page, working Jerick Mckinnon Youth Jersey out this offseason, my mindset has been to come back strong, be at the best that I can be and produce at the level I know I can produce.”
With six months between season's end and training camp's open, offseason plans are an art form for NFL players and McKinnon has spent more than two months of his with the Kendrick Lamar of offseason workouts: Adrian Peterson.
McKinnon and Peterson have formed a bond over the past three seasons – which doesn't always happen between aging superstar and up-and-comer, just ask Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. But A.P. was a McKinnon fan from Day 1.
“He's pretty impressive and there's not too many guys who impress me like that, especially rookies coming in,” Peterson told The Star Tribune back in 2014. “He's been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style.”
In his rookie year, McKinnon impressively filled in for Peterson while the superstar was suspended, gaining 538 yards on 113 carries, then acted as a change-of-pace back in 2015.
“He took me in from the start, coming into the league, he taught me a lot,” McKinnon said. “I think my game is a little different from some of the other backs around the league and the things that I do. It's always good to have somebody like that on your side supporting you, pushing you and just making me better overall as a player. I can't thank him enough.”
As only he can, McKinnon succinctly summarized how Peterson's absence will feel for everyone involved with the Vikings and their fans.
“It's going to be weird,” he said, laughing.
Now the soon-to-be 25-year-old playmaker has a new bandmate in the backfield. The Vikings signed former Raiders running back Latavius Murray earlier this offseason. Last year, the Raiders used Murray as part of a trio that gained 1,922 yards, sixth most in the NFL.
McKinnon understands it's a one-two punch league. Only one running back carried the ball 300 times last season (Ezekiel Elliott) ashttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-sam-bradford-jersey-c-2_7.html opposed to 2006 when there were 10 backs with 300-plus rushes, so it's likely that the new co-workers will both see plenty of playing time.
“I texted him after he signed the new contract to congratulate him, he seems like a cool guy so I just told him that, on my end, I just want to come in and compete so it will be good working with him and learning from him,” McKinnon said. “He's been named to one Pro Bowl, so he's had success in the league. I'm looking forward to getting in there, working with him, competing against him, learning about how he thinks about certain things, getting his point of view on certain situations and runs and plays, stuff like that.”
With his contract coming up after this season, McKinnon needs to make it clear that the backfield combination should be a 50-50 split or better in his direction. Last season, it took longer than it should have for interim (and now full-time) offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to use McKinnon as part of the passing game. In the final six weeks, he caught 31 of his total 43 receptions. And on third downs, he was merely a check down for Sam Bradford, gaining just 3.8 Yards Per Reception.
This time around, Shurmur gets to implement a playbook that's entirely his. And the Vikings' offensive line should be improved in 2017http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joshua-garnett-jersey-c-1_31.html by adding tackles Mike Remmers and Riley Reiff, who are better run than pass blockers.
Circumstances should be better. The rest is up to McKinnon to prove the 2014 and 2015 versions were closer to reality than 2016.

Indianapolis Colts Biggest Defensive Needs Entering Draft
We're hours away from the start of the 2017 NFL Draft. While the Indianapolis Colts have made some nice roster additions to theirhttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-cobi-hamilton-jersey-c-2_73.html defense, there are still plenty of holes to fill.
After focusing on the Indianapolis Colts offensive needs a few days ago, we'll now now focus on the team's defensive needs:
Interior Defense
Make no mistake about it, the addition of Jonathan Haskins is huge! As was written a few days ago, Haskins is the best interior defensive lineman the Indianapolis Colts have had since Anthony ‘Booger' McFarland. He is a run stopping force the Colts have lacked for years. Adding Haskins allows David Parry and Al Woods to move to a backup role.
Henry Anderson, when healthy, is a solid defensive end. He only started 2 games in 2016 and registered just 12 tackles. In 2015, he registered 31 tackles and a sack while starting 9 games. Hassan Ridgeway showed that he is a capable defensive tackle in the NFL; however, he is still young. T.Y. McGill is the only other defensive Josh Ferguson Womens Jersey tackle listed on the Colts roster. If the Colts have any injury concerns with Anderson, they may want to target another defensive end in the draft.
At defensive end, the Colts have even less depth. Kendall Langford is serviceable, but like Henry Anderson, injuries plagued Langford in 2016. The Colts signed Margus Hunt this offseason, but he is probably a better backup – not a starter. Kristjan Sokoli has played in just 1 game in the NFL.
Outside Linebackers
We hear it all the time from the Indianapolis Colts front office. They want pass rushers. While they improved their outside linebacking corp with the addition of John Simon, Jabaal Sheard, and Barkevious Mingo, the Colts would be vastly improved if they drafted a pass rushing OLB in the early rounds of the draft. Beyond Simon, Sheard and Mingo, the Colts have no other outside linebackers on the roster that started an NFL game last season.
Inside Linebackers
The Colts have a glaring need at inside linebacker. I'm not convinced that Edwin Jackson and Antonio Morrison are the answers. The Colts added Sean Spence this offseason who will add competition, but is probably not the answer. The Colts must address this position in the draft.
Cornerback
Vontae Davis had a bad year in 2016. Pro Football Focus (subscription required) ranked him out at a 47.3 in 2016, the 98th ranked player at the position. In comparison, he ranked out at a 94.6 in 2014 and an 82.2 in 2015. Was it a bad year, or a major http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-craig-robertson-jersey-c-1_10.html sign of decline for the 28 year old? The only thing more scary than a sizable decline is the fact that right now, Rashaan Melvin is the leading candidate to play opposite Davis. Melvin looked absolutely lost at times in 2016. The Colts have other role players, but with the likely move of Darius Butler to safety, the Colts have another glaring need at cornerback.
Safety
Clayton Geathers has shown promise at safety in his 2 years with the Indianapolis Colts. I sound like a broken record, but Geathers just has to stay healthy after missing 7 games last season. The Colts selected T.J. Green in the second round last April and was pretty raw in his rookie season. There is still some hope that GreenHunter Henry Womens Jersey will develop. In the meantime, Darius Butler will move from cornerback to safety. The Colts have some other players who saw action at safety last year and I wouldn't expect safety to be a big focus for the Colts in the draft – at least not early on.

Sunday Sports Brunch: Archie Manning knows his role
Archie Manning had a firm rule Kyle Rudolph Womens Jersey when watching his sons — and now his grandkids — play sports.
"My theory was, I always had a little talk with myself before I ever got out of the car: you're going to sit up on the top row and keep your mouth shut," he said.
If anyone has earned the right to speak up it's Manning. A Hall of Famer who starred with Ole Miss and the New Orleans Saints, he raised two sons, Peyton and Eli, who went on to win Super Bowls. Yet Manning — who will be the featured guest at this year's Commercial Appeal Sports Awards at the Orpheum on June 9 — said parents have to know their role, regardless of how successful they may have been.
"My role as a parent was to encourage and support," he said. "You're there after a loss or a disappointment and you don't go overboard http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-moritz-boehringer-jersey-c-2_16.html if they're having a bad day. And these (high school) coaches, they're not in it for money; they're in it because they love working with youngsters. The officials aren't getting rich; they're doing the best job they can."
Not surprisingly, Manning has fond memories of his own high school career in Drew, Miss. In addition to football, the 67-year-old played basketball (reaching the state tournament as a senior), baseball (beginning his varsity career as a seventh-grader) and ran track.
"I tell everybody it was like Mayberry," he said. "It was just a rural farm community ... a wonderful little town in the Mississippi Delta. We Jerry Rice Womens Jersey had a group of us, the athletes, and we played all sports. My teammates weren't as big or fast as the teammates I had in college and the pros, but they had as much heart.
"I was valedictorian of my high school class but what I don't tell people is that there were only 48 of us in the class. I remember one time — we had four football coaches and they had to dress out and practice with us because we were a little thin. I don't know that that's happened very often."
Numbers — and of course talent — dictated that Manning would be an all-arounder in high school. In an era where the emphasis is increasingly on specialization, he said it's important to let kids try as many things as they can.
"Obviously, you may have a prodigy, a real good tennis player or a golfer who can break 80 as a 10-year-old," he said. "In that case, you may wanthttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-russell-okung-jersey-c-1_44.html to (specialize). But I'm not as big on that at a young age. It could be playing the piano or (acting in) plays ... you just want kids to stay busy. You can't force them into sports."

TJ Watt looking to write own story in NFL
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Fairly or not, T.J. Watt will draw comparisons to his big brother when he gets to the pros.
Oh sure, he can speed past an offensive tackle and split double teams just like another former Wisconsin star with the same last name andKyle Wilber Youth Jersey similar skillset as a pass rusher.
But J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans is an NFL star with the ability to change the game anytime he's on the field.
Is it fair to just assume T.J. Watt will simply follow in his older brother's footsteps ?
“T.J. has got to write his own story,” Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said when asked how family ties might influence NFL executives. “What it does is when you're not sure, it (favors Watt) because of the way T.J. goes about it.”
Chryst was the offensive coordinator at Wisconsin while the older Watt was there. He just finished his second season as head coach, havinghttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-jahleel-addae-jersey-c-1_24.html watched T.J. Watt overcome injuries and a move from tight end to turn into one of the top pass-rushing prospects in this year's rookie class.
Watt has a chance to get selected in the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday, just as his brother did in 2011.
“I don't know why it wouldn't or shouldn't influence others,” Chryst said about the Watt connections . “But again, I think you've got make sure you're (looking at) two different people.”
T.J. Watt embraces any talk of potential similarities.
“Yeah, he's one of the best players to ever do it, why not take that comparison?” he said at the NFL combine. “The No. 1 thing I love about my brother's play is how he does it. He's 100 percent all out every single play. … He's a game-changer. That's how I want to be viewed.”
He has certainly stood out to NFL executives after getting 63 tackles, including 15 for losses, and 11 sacks in 2016, his only season as a starter. Watt might be a good fit with the 29th overall pick for the Green Bay Packers, who could use a young player in their pass rush.
What makes Watt an even more intriguing pick for Green Bay is that the Packers have a pass-rushing role model with pedigree already on the roster in Clay Matthews.
Pro football is the Matthews family business. Matthews' father, Clay Jr., played 19 seasons in the NFL with the Browns and Falcons. His grandfather played four seasons as a defensive end with the 49ers.
Not that family ties are a deciding factor for general manager Teddy Bridgewater Authentic Jersey Ted Thompson, who drafted Matthews in 2009.
“I think that happens from time to time during the process … it might make you feel better,” Thompson said last week.
“But at the end of the day, we try to see, is Clay Matthews a good football player and can he help our team, and is he the kind of person we'd like to add to our team? I think those are the questions we wind up asking.”
Hard work on and off the field appears to be a family trait shared by J.J., T.J. and a third Watt brother, Chargers fullback Derek Watt. He is entering his second season in the NFL.
J.J. and T.J. ended up playing similar positions. But T.J. only started playing defense after moving from tight end after getting hurt early in spring practice two seasons ago. It was then that Chryst, in his first spring as head coach, approached Watt about moving across the line of scrimmage.
That season, Wisconsin had one of the Big Ten's best outside linebacker combinations in Vince Biegel and Joe Schobert, who is now with the Cleveland Browns.
Watt picked things up so quickly that the defense was able to use him as a reserve outside linebacker as well as an interior rusher in a nickel package, giving the Badgers another athletic pass rusher.
It's a skill that an NFL team can't overlook, regardless http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-cordarrelle-patterson-jersey-c-2_13.html of that famous last name.
“I think (T.J. Watt) just wants his shot, and I know some of the mock draft boards have him potentially coming here which would be great if he's even half the player that his brother is, but I'm sure there's pressure on him,” Clay Matthews said. “But I'm sure if he's anything like his brother, he'll have a drive and work ethic that can't be matched.”

It's Not Looking Good For Teddy Bridgewater
This week has brought several news items about Teddy Bridgewater and his future in Minnesota. That future continues to look pretty grim.
First, there was Vikings GM Rick Spielman Bud Dupree Kids Jersey telling reporters that there was still no timetable for when Bridgewater might be back doing a full slate of football activities on his surgically repaired knee, which was badly injured last August. Then came an ESPN report that said the Vikings were likely to pass on picking up Bridgewater's fifth-year option for 2018, a decision that has to be made no later than May 2. And now there's the possibility that Bridgewater could remain sidelined for the entire 2017 season, the final year of his rookie contract.
The Vikings still have a way to hang on to Bridgewater beyond 2017, even if they don't exercise his option. As NFL Network's Ian Rapoport pointed out, if Bridgewater were to be placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list this summer without later being added to the 53-man roster, his contract would be “tolled,” whichhttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-deangelo-williams-jersey-c-2_66.html effectively means that the final year of his deal would be frozen and then restarted for 2018.
This is significant for several reasons—and stay with me because it gets a little complicated:
1. Exercising the option would guarantee Bridgewater's 2018 salary for injury only, at a cost estimated to be $12.198 million—a hefty increase (and cap charge) from his '17 salary of approximately $1.35 million (with a cap charge of $2.179 million). By not exercising the option, the Vikings would be signaling that there's too much financial risk in doing that.
2. If Bridgewater were to be placed on PUP to start the 2017 season, he'd be eligible to start practicing after Week 6 but no later than afterhttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-52-dqwell-jackson-jersey-c-1_23.html Week 10. If he then were to resume practicing at any point within that window, the Vikings would have three weeks to add him to the 53-man roster. If they were to choose not to put him on the roster, they'd have to shut him down by placing him on IR, thereby tolling his contract.
3. If the contract is tolled, 2018 would become the fourth year of Bridgewater's contract, at a salary of roughly $1.35 million. And because the decision on his fifth year has to be made now—before the tolling—2018 would then also be the final year of Bridgewater's deal.
4. Sam Bradford, who is serving as the Vikings' quarterback in Bridgewater's stead, has one year remaining on his contract. Which means that by sitting Bridgewater in 2017, the Vikings could transition back to him in 2018 at a cost well below what it would have been had they exercised his option and not tolled his contract. This assumes that Bridgewater will be ready to play in '18, of course.
5. As Mike Florio noted over at Pro Football Talk, the Vikings could make 2019 Bridgewater's option year by picking up his option now andDrew Brees Youth Jersey then tolling him. But: “If they think he'll stay on PUP in 2017 and that he won't be ready to play by 2019,” Florio wrote, “that would be the most ominous news yet regarding his knee injury from nearly eight months ago.”
God, Teddy Bridgewater is so screwed.

Danielle Hunter to the Jacksonville Jaguars? 2015 NFL Re-Draft
Dante Fowler Jr. is still finding his feet with the Jacksonville Jaguars making a 2015 NFL re-draft see the Jags grab someone else Darrius Heywardbey Womens Jersey to fill the pass rushing void.
Injuries are never good. Dante Fowler Jr. found that out the hard way after tearing his ACL during his first look on the field in a rookie minicamp for the Jacksonville Jaguars following his selection third overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.
To say that ACL tear held him back would be accurate. Instead of hitting the field as a young terror, Fowler missed all of 2015 and worked back slowly into the rotation in 2016. Fellow pass rusher, rookie Yannick Ngakoue, is pushinghttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-75-jack-mewhort-jersey-c-1_30.html Fowler for playing time after leading the team with eight sacks (Fowler had four).
But in the game of football, production matters most. Fowler has just four sacks to his name two seasons after being drafted. It is far too early to call him a bust. Similarly, it is still too early to tell how his career will shape out, but in the offseason everything is up for exploration. That was the motivation behind Lance Zierlein's re-draft of the 2015 NFL Draft. In it, Zierlein gives the Jaguars a pass rusher at third overall and that pass rusher is Danielle Hunter.
Hunter, for those who don't follow thehttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-max-unger-jersey-c-1_29.html Minnesota Vikings, has been a menace. He worked his way up the depth chart after entering as a third-round pick and has accumulated 18.5 sacks in two seasons. He has 12.5 sacks in 2016, leading the Vikings defense.
It isn't all about bringing the quarterback down, though. Hunter has also made an impact in big-time plays. Two fumbles forced, one fumble recovered, and a touchdown makes Hunter not just a great pass rusher but one of the more electric young defenders to watch in the NFL.
The production has led to accolades. Aside from going third overall in this re-draft, Hunter also landed on Pro Football Focus' top-25 under 25 list and Bleacher Reports' best young pass rushers list.
While Fowler still has the raw ability to http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-philip-rivers-jersey-c-1_45.html be great, the Jags certainly wouldn't have minded the kind of production Hunter has provided. The drat is always a bit of a gamble and hindsight is 20/20.
Meanwhile, Ngakoue looks to be the Jags' own third-round Hunter.

Dave Boling: For the Seahawks, no pick is a good pick
RENTON
For once, it all made sense.
It came together for the Seahawks withoutAnthony Chickillo Authentic Jersey the analysts scratching their heads over what they were up to.
Nobody knows better than Seahawk general manager John Schneider that sometimes the best pick is the one you don't make.
They not only moved out of the first round, they picked up three extra draft picks in the process — and still have plenty of talent to choose from when they get after it in Friday's second and third rounds.
This may turn out to be the best first-round move the Seahawks made since they took Russell Okung and Earl Thomas in the first draft of the Schneider-Pete Carroll era, back in 2010.
Several times as we approached the draft, Schneider Cameron Heyward Youth Jersey has used the double incentive for making any move at this point: Get younger, get cap room.
The draft is all about getting younger, and they can stand it at almost every unit on the team — except the offensive line. They're too young there already, but the prospects available in the bottom of the first round weren't going to offer immediate help anyway.
After Thursday's dealing, the Hawks still have a solid pool of cornerbacks they might take, and even offensive linemen.
This was predictable for Schneider, who traded out of the lower part of the first round in three of the last four drafts.
Fact is, they've only had three other first-rounders since Okung and Thomas: James Carpenter, Bruce Irvin, and Germain Ifedi last season.
Neither Carpenter nor Irvin earned second contracts with the Seahawks.
Ifedi had mixed results as a rookie, but still has plenty of time to earn his draft position.
Truth, though, the Seahawks need talent at every position. They need gifted youth, and with the first pick, it needed to be somebody who can help right off. The bulk of their stars are on the back halves of their career.
I thought Washington's Kevin King would be ahttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-83-dwayne-allen-jersey-c-1_33.html great addition at cornerback late in the first. But high-ceiling cornerbacks will be available in the second round.
Linemen? I thought Western Kentucky's Forrest Lamb could turn into a quick-ripening guard for the Hawks. But there's time for guards.
This draft offered a bit of perspective on the Hawks' picks of the past. In a pool of draftable quarterbacks that impressed few before the draft, and left many seeing none being worth a first-round grade, three quarterbacks were taken in the first 12 selections.
Teams traded up, in one case, way up, to get those three quarterbacks.
Chicago traded four picks to move up just one spot to get North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky.
The Chiefs traded in the first round to move up 17 spots to pick Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes II, and Houston gave away next year's first-round pick to move up to No. 12 to get Clemson's Deshaun Watson.
How remarkable, then, was it to get franchise quarterback Russell Wilson in the third round of the 2012 draft?
We still need to carry over credit forhttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-michael-thomas-jersey-c-1_32.html the genius of that pick as we set about grading John Schneider this year.
It makes Friday all the more interesting for Schneider and Carroll and the Seahawks fans.
This is one time where no pick was a good pick.

Report: Bills host LB Justin Durant on free agent visit
The Buffalo Bills reportedly kicked Manti Teo Womens Jersey the tires on a veteran linebacker Thursday.
ESPN's Adam Caplan reported that the team hosted Justin Durant on a free agent visit.
Durant, 31, is a 10-year veteran who has played for four different teams, most recently the Dallas Cowboys. It his second stint with the team, Duranthttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-kyle-rudolph-jersey-c-2_25.html appeared in 13 games, making 37 tackles, one sack and three passes defensed. His best season came in 2012 with Detroit, when he started 14 games and made 103 tackles.
Durant has 635 tackles, 4.5 sacks, three interceptions and 26 passes defensed in his career. If signed, he would serve as veteran linebacker depth if he makes the 53-man roster.

Position Series: LB Position Has Young Talent, But All Eyes Fixed on Smith
Editor's Note: April is here, which means the first wave of free agency has passed and the NFL Draft is just around the corner. DallasCowboys.com's Audie Cole Youth Jersey 11-part series analyzes every position on the Cowboys' roster at this point in the offseason: free-agent additions and subtractions, draft possibilities, returning players and question marks. The series continues with linebackers.)
Roster Holdovers: Sean Lee is coming off an All-Pro season and his second straight Pro Bowl selection. Staying healthy is obviously the key for him and it showed in a major way in 2016. Lee racked up 174 tackles, including a franchise-record 22 stops against the Giants. While the Cowboys are expecting big things from Damienhttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-quinton-patton-jersey-c-1_39.html Wilson, Anthony Hitchens and perhaps Mark Nzeocha, the main player on everyone's mind is Jaylon Smith. After sitting out last year with a knee injury, Smith continues to be optimistic in his rehab. While the Cowboys have not put a timetable on Smith's return, fingers remain crossed that he can not only get on the field soon, but develop into the player he was projected to be coming out of last year's draft. If Smith turns out to be a contributor, this linebacker position has a chance to flourish, especially if Lee remains healthy.
Free Agency Overview: The Cowboys lost a couple of players in free agency they chose not to re-sign in both Andrew Gachkar and Justin Durant. By drafting a linebacker in each of the last three years, the Cowboys have plenty of depth already on the roster, putting this position on the backburner in free agency.
Draft Outlook: The same reasons the Cowboys had little interest in a linebacker in free agency might be the case for the draft as well. But http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-shaquil-barrett-jersey-c-1_37.html there is much more upside in acquiring linebackers through the draft. While it's unlikely they will add someone in the first round or second, after that is fair game at all positions. Linebackers are valuable because of their ability to play on special teams. Considering Gachkar is no longer on the roster, the Cowboys will probably add a linebacker in the middle rounds to add depth.
Time To Shine: While the obvious answer here is Smith, it's still unknown when he will be cleared to practice at full strength. Until then, let's focus on a guy such as Wilson, who is entering his third season and should compete for a starting job on the strong side. He'll likely be asked to handle more special teams duties with his running ability and athleticism. Last year, Wilson started to play more and more on the baseLance Dunbar Kids Jersey packages and nickel. He can fly to the football and is gaining a better understanding of Rod Marinelli's scheme. This could be the year he shows the Cowboys the kind of player they were hoping for back in the 2015 draft.

Marquette King warns Odell Beckham Jr. of Week 13 trolling
Marquette King has identified hisKyle Emanuel Kids Jersey next victim, and he just so happens to be one of the most electric characters in the NFL.
After the 2017 regular-season schedules dropped on Thursday, the Oakland Raiders punter tweeted at New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to warn him of the trolling coming his way in Week 13.
The Oakland Raiders are gearing up for http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-moritz-boehringer-jersey-c-2_17.html the 2017 NFL Draft. Want the latest on potential targets sent straight to your inbox? – Sign up for our FREE Raiders newsletter now!
King is a ruthless troll, and his antics went viral multiple times last season. He mocked the Ray Lewis dance at M&T Bank Stadium during a win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4. He rode an imaginary pony in front of a roaring crowd at the Oakland Coliseum, while the Raiders were whooping the Denver Broncos in Week 9.
In a Week 13 matchup with the Buffalo Bills, Kinghttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-danielle-hunter-jersey-c-2_5.html turned his trolling to the officials, picked up a flag and used it as a prop to help accentuate a celebratory dance. A week later, he got into a heated exchange with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Both incidents resulted in King being penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Beckham is known for his emotional instability, as his one-on-one battles with former Carolina Panthers and current Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman have highlighted his propensity for losing his cool. King may try Roger Craig Womens Jersey to exploit that when the Raiders and Giants play each other in 2017.
King would be wise to tread lightly, though. You never know when OBJ will take one of his patented slant patterns to the house.

"...ich war viel zu aufgeregt"
Vor ziemlich genau einem Jahr stand Moritz Böhringer in Deutschland voll im Fokus - als erster deutscher Receiver sowie als erster Spieler direkt aus Europa überhaupt wurde er gedraftet, SPOX war damals live dabei. Ein Jahr später blickt er auf seinen Draft zurück, gibt anderen Spielern aus Deutschland Tipps und berichtet, wie erArtie Burns Youth Jersey sich auf die neue Saison vorbereitet.
SPOX: Herr Böhringer - wie geht es Ihnen? Wie war die Offseason bislang, wie läuft das Training?
Moritz Böhringer: Mir geht es sehr gut. Ich bin jetzt wieder in Minneapolis, davor war ich zwei Wochen lang in Florida. Jetzt bin ich für die OTAs ("Organized Team Activities", d. Red.) zurückgekommen.
SPOX: In Florida hatten Sie sich ja vor einem Jahr auch auf den Draft vorbereitet, war das der Grund, zum Training erneut dorthin zu fliegen? Und waren Sie dann vor Ort auf sich alleine gestellt?
Böhringer: Ganz genau, ich kenne da die Einrichtungen. Ich war nicht alleine, nein, andere Spieler haben dort ebenfalls trainiert. Am Morgen habe ich dann immer Geschwindigkeitsübungen und Ausdauertraining absolviert, am Nachmittag dann andere Einheiten gemacht. Bevor ich nach Florida geflogen bin, habe ich in den Team-Einrichtungen meine Krafteinheiten gemacht. Da waren dann natürlich auch Mitspieler aus dem Team, mit denen habe ich auch ein wenig zusammen trainiert.
Erlebe den Draft Live auf DAZN. Hol Dir jetzt Deinen Gratismonat
SPOX: In Florida aber gab es dann auch Training in der Gruppe?
Böhringer: Da waren noch zwei andere Europäer, einer der beiden hat vorher Rugby gespielt und versucht es jetzt ebenfalls, in die NFL zu kommen. Der andere war hier am College. Mit den beiden habe ich auch zusammen trainiert und Übungen auf dem Feld gemacht - Routes laufen beispielsweise.
SPOX: Gibt es einen Aspekt, an dem Sie besonders gearbeitet haben?
Böhringer: Das waren schon die Routes - und Bälle fangen. Die typischen Receiver-Sachen. (lacht)
SPOX: Und hatten Sie dafür vom TeamCustomized Youth Jersey Vorgaben bekommen? Oder haben Sie nach einem eigenen Plan trainiert?
Böhringer: Wir haben einen Plan für das Kraft- und Ausdauer-Training bekommen, daraus habe ich einige Dinge übernommen. Aber insgesamt habe ich schon eher nach meinem eigenen Plan gearbeitet. Was die Einheiten auf dem Platz angeht: Da bekommt man eigentlich keine Vorgaben.
SPOX: Rein auf das Route-Running bezogen: Gibt es da einen Punkt, an dem Sie besonders arbeiten müssen?
Böhringer: Generell geht es darum, einfach effektiver in meinen Routes zu sein und meine Arme richtig zu nutzen, solche Dinge. Diese Einheiten haben wir dann auch immer gefilmt und anschließend gemeinsam angeschaut, um die Routes zu analysieren. Das ist für mich eine gute Vorbereitung.
Böhringer nach der Saison im SPOX-Interview: "Ich war ziemlich unvorbereitet"
SPOX: Wie kann man sich dann unter dem Strich einen Trainings-Tag in der Offseason vorstellen?
Böhringer: In Florida haben wir ein wenig mehr gemacht: Los ging es wie gesagt mit Geschwindigkeits- und Ausdauer-Einheiten. Dann folgte das Krafttraining, dann die Routes. Am frühen Abend haben wir dann noch Übungen mit dem Ball gemacht. Ansonsten habe ich meistens morgens Krafttraining gemacht und am Nachmittag Routes trainiert.
SPOX: Die letzte Saison endete ja mit einem ziemlich dramatischen Spiel - wo haben Sie denn eigentlich den Super Bowl geschaut?
Böhringer: Ich war im Stadion! Jeder Spieler kann sich zwei Karten vom Team holen, und dann dachte ich mir: Einmal muss man da schon hingehen, einmal muss man den Super Bowl erleben - und als neutraler Zuschauer war das natürlich das perfekte Spiel. (lacht)
SPOX: Keine Frage! Allerdings rückt diehttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-corey-liuget-jersey-c-1_9.html kommende Saison schon wieder näher, als nächstes steht der Draft auf dem Programm - und vor einem Jahr standen Sie selbst noch im Mittelpunkt und wurden als erster Receiver aus Deutschland direkt in die NFL gedraftet. Was ist da bei Ihnen besonders in Erinnerung geblieben?
Böhringer: (überlegt) Also zunächst einmal vor dem Draft das viele Reisen zu allen möglichen Teams und sich bei verschiedenen Teams alles anzuschauen. Das war auf jeden Fall interessant. Der Draft-Tag selbst ist ein anstrengender Tag, sehr nervenaufreibend. Natürlich, wenn man dann ausgewählt wird, das ist ein großes Highlight.
SPOX: Haben Sie sich im Vorfeld irgendwelche Szenarien ausgemalt? Haben Sie vielleicht auf ein Team oder eine Runde geschielt?
Böhringer: Nein, ich habe es schon eher auf mich zukommen lassen - beim Draft kann man das ohnehin nicht wirklich sagen. Da kann alles Mögliche passieren. Dass ich tatsächlich gedraftet werde, habe ich erst erfahren, als die Vikings auch wirklich angerufen haben. Das war drei Spots bevor sie dran waren.
SPOX: Was hat das Team Ihnen dann gesagt? Einfach nur dass sie Sie nehmen, wenn Sie in drei Picks noch auf dem Board sind?
Böhringer: Also genau weiß ich es ehrlich gesagt nicht mehr, weil ich viel zu aufgeregt war. (lacht) Sie haben auf jeden Fall gesagt, dass sie mich gerne hätten - und dann haben sie mich ja auch geholt.
Der Draft 2017 im Überblick: Ablauf, Zeitrahmen, Top-Prospect
SPOX: Hatten Sie im Vorfeld irgendwie erwartet, dass es einen so krassen Medien-Rummel um Sie geben könnte? An diesem dritten Draft-Tag standen Sie irgendwann ja schon deutlich im Mittelpunkt, auch beim NFL Network.
Böhringer: Sagen wir es so: Es warhttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-jake-long-jersey-c-2_56.html eine gute Geschichte, von daher verstehe ich es. Ich hätte mir vielleicht erhofft, dass es ein bisschen weniger Rummel gegeben hätte. Aber es ist eben so passiert, und ich hatte ja genügend Leute, die geholfen haben, all das zu kontrollieren und auch auszuwählen. Hätte ich das alles alleine regeln müssen, wäre es vermutlich doch deutlich komplizierter gewesen.
SPOX: Sie haben die Reisen zu den Teams bereits angesprochen, dazu kommen der Pro Day und generell diverse Gespräche rund um den Draft-Prozess. Dabei sind die Scouts durchaus bekannt dafür, auch mal verrückte Fragen zu stellen - war das bei Ihnen auch der Fall?
Böhringer: Da war eher nichts Verrücktes dabei, nein. Das lag wahrscheinlich auch daran, dass sie erstmal versucht haben, überhaupt irgendetwas über mich herauszufinden - die hatten eigentlich keinerlei Informationen. Sie wussten, dass die GFL mit den Top-Teams im College nicht vergleichbar ist, das war ihnen schon bewusst. Aber bei den Spielern, die aus dem College kommen, wissen die Teams ja nahezu alles. Bei mir haben sie eher allgemeine Fragen gestellt.
SPOX: Aktuell zeichnet es sich ja zunehmend ab, dass mehr junge Talente aus Deutschland und Europa generell versuchen, ihren Football-Traum in den USA zu verfolgen. Gibt es irgendetwas, das Sie diesen Spielern mitgeben könnten?
Böhringer: (überlegt) Hm, was die meisten machen: Sie zeigen dir Formationen und Spielzüge, und dann muss man sich den oder die Namen merken und wiedergeben können - sie testen also, ob du in der Lage bist, das System zu verstehen. Ich musste dann die gleiche Formation erneut zeichnen oder sie auch spiegeln. Das waren etwa fünf bis zehn verschiedene Schaubilder insgesamt.
SPOX: Zum Abschluss: Mit dem nächsten Draft quasi vor der Haustür - verfolgen Sie den Draft eigentlich? Schaut man als Spieler beispielsweise, ob das Team auf der eigenen Position einen möglichen Konkurrenten holt?
Böhringer: Das weiß ich noch nicht, wenn ich ehrlich http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-trae-waynes-jersey-c-2_11.html bin. Vielleicht schaue ich die erste Runde. Im Prinzip ändert es ja nicht wirklich was: Ich schaue mir am Ende die Ergebnisse an, dann sehe ich, wen das Team gedraftet hat. Im Endeffekt habe ich auf die Entscheidung ja allerdings ohnehin keinen Einfluss.

The 2017 NFL draft is a couple days away, and that means we get to rehash stories about Aaron Rodgers' slide down the draft boardhttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-eli-harold-jersey-c-1_19.html in 2005. We've heard the stories over and over again, but I learned something new today.
ESPN put together an oral history of Rodgers' draft-day slide, and one of the people involved was then former NFL head coach Jon Gruden. At the time, Gruden was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach, and they held the No. 5 pick following a 5-11 season. Gruden and the Bucs elected to draft Carnell “Cadillac” Williams, and Rodgers slide from there.
In his interview for the ESPN oral history, Gruden http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-drew-brees-jersey-c-1_14.html talked about meeting Rodgers in the pre-draft process. They watched film, then did some gym work, and then went out for the field drills. Gruden brought along some players to put out there with Rodgers, and it turns out Jerry Rice was one of them. I googled that and found some articles a few years old talking about it. I had no idea that had been a thing. How did I miss it?
Gruden had a picture taken with Rodgers and Rice (and Peyton Manning was there too, for some reason). In the interview with ESPN, heCody Wallace Youth Jersey joked about how he still has the picture hanging in the offices of the Fired Football Coaches Association, reminding him of why he was fired.
Here's the picture!

How much will Wynne's next budget cost Ontarians?
You have to wonder how much of our money Premier Kathleen Wynne is willing to spend to win re-election next year.
By my calculations, the cost of Wynne's Thursday budget speech to Ontario taxpayers was $9.3 billion, or $422.7 million per page of Finance Minister Charles Sousa's 22-page effort.
Given that, who knows how much it willPeyton Manning Youth Jersey cost taxpayers next April, considering that will be Wynne's “pre-election” budget, shortly before the June, 2018 vote?
Here are my cost calculations and the reasoning behind them, based on announcements in Wynne's 2017-2018 budget speech:
* $190 million over three years “to help create 40,000 new work-related learning opportunities.”
* $1.8 billion, the estimated annual government revenue, paid for by Ontarians in the form of higher retail prices on most goods and services, from Wynne's cap and trade carbon pricing scheme.
* $80 million “to create the Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network.”
* $19 million “to help our greenhouse farming sector invest in innovative technologies.”
* $2.5 billion over three years for Wynne's “Fair Hydro Plan”, in which she's using taxpayers' money to subsidize the electricity bills of hydrohttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-32-tj-green-jersey-c-1_18.html ratepayers, despite the fact taxpayers and ratepayers are the same people.
* $20 million for “respite care to people who volunteer to care for a loved one.”
* $200 million for more daycare.
* $1.6 billion this year (based on $16 billion over 10 years) for new schools.
* $200 million over three years for “First Nation, Metis and Inuit ... post secondary education and training.”
* $465 million annually for a pharmacare program to provide free prescription drugs to all Ontario children from birth to 24 years of age.
* $150 million over three years for a minimum income pilot project for 4,000 low-income households in Hamilton, Thunder Bay and Lindsay.
* $1.3 billion over three years “to reduce (medical) wait times.”
* $518 million “booster shot” for hospitals.
* $85 million over three years for home care.
* $200 million “to improve the energy efficiency of our schools.”
No doubt some of this spending is worthwhile and, to be fair, some of it overlaps.
For example, the $1.8 billion in annual revenue fromhttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-drew-brees-jersey-c-1_14.html cap and trade will presumably help pay for the $200 million spent to improve energy efficiency in schools.
Taxpayers will also receive partial returns from some programs, such as Wynne's “Fair Hydro Plan”, which lowers electricity rates.
That said, all this assumes all the money to be spent on these programs will go where the Wynne government says it will go, in the amounts and during the time frames specified.
On that score, remember it was the Liberal government of Dalton McGuinty, in which Wynne was a senior cabinet minister, that told us the cost of cancelling two controversial gas plants in Oakville and Mississauga prior to the 2011 election, which the opposition parties dubbed “the Liberal seat saver program”, would Cobi Hamilton Kids Jersey be $230 million over 20 years.
That turned out to be up to $1.1 billion, according to the auditor general.
That's not to mention all the other Liberal spending scandals — eHealth, Ornge, green energy, smart meters — where costs soared beyond estimates.
So hold on to your wallets.

Chargers' Dwight Lowery says Joey Bosa has Hall of Fame potential
One of the many players pleased Joey Bosa arrived on the practice field this week for the Los Angeles Chargers was safety Dwight Lowery.
Not only did the 10-year veteran benefit from the edge rusher's surprisingly dominant performance as a rookie last season, heJason Verrett Youth Jersey expects more seasons like that from the Ohio State product in the years to come.
“I think he's got Hall of Fame potential,” the usually reserved Lowery said. “And that's after seeing him play just a couple games and seeing him practice. Just his size and physical attributes, he can be as good as he wants to be. And hopefully he makes the right decisions along the way and things of that nature. And hopefully he's able to stay healthy throughout his whole career.”
Bosa missed all of training camp last year due to a contract dispute over signing bonus money and offset language. On his first day of practice after signing his rookie deal in September, Bosa suffered a hamstring injury that forced him to miss the first four game of the season.
Even still, Bosa finished with 10.5 sacks in 12 games, earning Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. Bosa's 10.5 sacks was tops among rookies last season.
Bosa finished the season with at least half a Deangelo Williams Authentic Jersey sack in the last six games, the longest streak by a Chargers' player since Marcellus Wiley had sacks in seven straight games in 2001.
“You could argue if he had played those four games -- forget rookie of the year -- could he have been defensive player of the year if he plays those four games?” Lowery said. “We don't know what he would have done had he played those four games.”
Last week, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn confirmed to reporters that Bosa had been working with his personal trainer in Florida away from the facility rather than attending voluntary workouts at Chargers Park, missing the first three weeks of offseason work.
Bosa told reporters on Tuesday that he notified the Chargers beforehand of his plans, and he promised defensive line coach Giff Smith when the team is on the field playing football he'll be at Chargers Park for workouts.
“I just found a process that works for me that I used all last year, and it worked out pretty well,” Bosa said. “I want to continue climbing, continue getting better.
“It's nothing magical. It's just training the right way. And I want to continue doing that. I think when it comes to your body you have to do what youhttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-52-dqwell-jackson-jersey-c-1_23.html think is right. It's nothing against the team, it's just what I think is right for my body.”
Bosa said he's looking forward to moving back to end in a 4-3 =alignment after playing =end in a 3-4 scheme last season.
Bosa said he also looks forward to working with new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, someone he got to know during the draft process last year during a pre-draft visit with the Jacksonville Jaguars when Bradley served as the team's head coach.
“He's a deep thinker,” Bosa said about Bradley. “And with his positivity and obviously his football knowledge more than anything, we need a guy to come in and stay positive when you have 100 football players walking around -- not everybody is going to be in right mindset and positive all the time.
“But to have a guy like that that bring positivity and energy, along with being a really great coach, he can back all of that up.”
Lowery expects Bosa to ramp things up even more with a return to his more natural position.
“When you've got a guy like Joey Bosa or Melvin [Ingram] and you've got them stunting, and that stunt doesn't work on a particular play, now you're either taking them out of the run game, or it's hard for them to stunt and then pass rush out of that position,” Lowery said. “So unless that stunt hits home and works, you're reallyhttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-junior-seau-jersey-c-1_31.html taking away some of your best players' ability to get to the passer.
“For me with Joey in particular, you have a two-way go and just line up and beat the guy. I think he has enough tools and skills to just beat guys based on that.”

Did the Vikings just draft their new Cordarrelle Patterson?
The Vikings filled another need whenErnie Stautner Authentic Jersey they selected Rodney Adams out of South Florida. The wide receiver will fill the immediate role of kick returner for the Vikings, after Cordarrelle Patterson left for the Oakland Raiders in free agency.
Adams joins a wider receiver corps that has plenty of talent in Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell and Adam Thielen, so Adams is not likely to see much time on the field on offense, but will make an immediate impact in special teams. In 2015, hehttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-ian-williams-jersey-c-1_24.html averaged 29.1 yards per return and in 2016 he averaged 24.3 yards per return, according to Sports Reference.
Adam is a dynamic athlete, as he scored touchdowns in multiple ways, according to Mike Wobschall.
The Vikings continue to fill their needs in the draft, something that General Manager Rick Spielman has done well throughout his time here.
Adams has nice size, speed and big-play ability, which is something the Vikings lacked last season. Adams also only dropped three passes his senior http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-shaquil-barrett-jersey-c-1_37.html season, so you know his hands are good.
The wide out will be a work-in-progress for the Vikings, but they selected another high potential player that can make an immediate impact as a kick returner next season.

In 1994, 'Neon Deion' Sanders was atop the NFL world when he joined the Reds
"I never wanted to be mediocre at anything. I wanted to be the absolute best."
-- Deion Sanders, on ESPN Classic's "SportsCentury" series
Deion was always good for a memorable quote, wasn't he?
How about this one: "How do you think http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-benson-mayowa-jersey-c-2_4.html defensive backs get attention?" Sanders asked. "They don't pay nobody to be humble."
Born Aug. 9, 1967, in Fort Myers, Florida, Sanders was playing organized baseball and football by age 8. An all-state performer in football, baseball and basketball at North Fort Myers High, he took his talents to Florida State, where he helped lead the baseball team to the College World Series and was a two-time All-American in football.
The Atlanta Falcons made him the fifth overall selection in the 1989 NFL Draft, and the New York Yankees selected him in the 30th round of the Major League Baseball draft in 1988.
Sanders never lacked confidence. And why should he have? In 2014, just before Sanders was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Gil Brandt of NFL.com relayed these superlatives:
Sanders is the only man to play in both a Super Bowl and a World Series.
He is the only man to hit an MLB home run and score an NFL touchdown in the same week.
He is the only player to have both a reception and an interception in the Super Bowl.
He is one of just two players to score an NFL touchdown six different ways.
He even had two nicknames: "Primetime" and "Neon Deion."
And before all the accolades, way backhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-rodney-hudson-jersey-c-2_9.html on May 29, 1994, Sanders became a member of the Cincinnati Reds.
Wrote Claire Smith of The New York Times: "The Atlanta Braves traded Deion Sanders to the Cincinnati Reds for Roberto Kelly yesterday in what on the surface seemed a simple matter of right and left. The Braves, missing Ron Gant's right-handed power a great deal, acquired some pop in the form of Kelly, the Yankee prospect who had developed into an All-Star with Cincinnati. Sanders, another former Yankee prospect but a left-handed batter, nicely meets a Cincinnati need, the team being overloaded with right-handed hitters and in need of Sanders' type of speed."
But Smith also noted that Sanders may have worn out his welcome in Atlanta.
"There has been a perception that the Braves have wearied of Sanders, the multiple sports star who not only played brashly for them but also was an All-Pro defensive back for the National Football League's Atlanta Falcons, who last month made him an unrestricted free agent while expressing interest in retaining him."
The Reds, however, had high hopes for the deal. Manager Davey Johnson said, "Sanders was not the thumper I was looking for, but he's the next best thing."
Jim Bowden, the Reds' general manager, said, "He's a great athlete, probably the fastest runner in baseball today. He has the type of personality that can help us sell tickets. Deion Sanders is a better defensive player; he makes us a better defensive team. We were top-heavy with right-handed hitting. He gives us a pure left-handed leadoff man, which we didn't have."
The previous year, Sanders batted .276 with the Braves before going on the disabled list in August with a respiratory infection. That ended his baseball season, and he arrived late with the Falcons, but still went on to lead the NFC with seven interceptions in 11 games.
By 1994, the Reds were off to a hot start. Clay Marshall of RedlegNation.com reports that through the end of April, they'd won 15 games, lost just seven and held a 2.5-game lead over second-place Houston, then a member of the National League.
"In May (when Bowden sent Kelly to Atlanta for Deion Sanders) and June, the Reds went a combined 29-26 -- nothing special, but good enough to still enjoy a 1.5-game lead as of June 30," Marshall wrote. "The team padded that Jack Butler Youth Jersey total by one additional game prior to the All-Star break, yet only Barry Larkin (who, after a slow start, sported a solid .286/.386/.409 line at the break en route to his first Gold Glove) and Jose Rijo (8-4, 3.06) earned invitations to Pittsburgh for the midsummer classic."
The Reds' lead slipped as the Astros surged, all under the dark cloud of a possible players' strike that could end the season. And when the strike began on Aug. 12, "the Reds led the NL Central with a record of 66-48," Marshall reported. "Just over a month later, acting commissioner Bud Selig formally canceled the remainder of the season. For the first time since 1904, there would be no World Series."
Sanders was hitting .283 with 38 steals at that point. Of course, his football season was just beginning. He signed a one-year deal with San Francisco, where he tied the 49ers' single-season record with three interception returns for touchdowns and became the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. His four tackles and an interception helped the 49ers beat San Diego 49-26 in Super Bowl XXIX.
But do you remember when he got arrested?
In Mike Shannon's book, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," he chronicles when Sanders was arrested on Aug. 8, 1994 "in an incident that was as silly as it was criminal."
"When Sanders tried to drive his motor scooter out of Riverfront Stadium through a pedestrian exit, a police officer ordered him to stop and leave by a different exit," Shannon wrote. Sanders ignored the officer, who then grabbed theAnthony Castonzo Womens Jersey ballplayer and was dragged about 20 feet. Sanders was charged with resisting arrest, failure to comply and leaving the scene of an accident.
He was exonerated on all counts.
Three years ago, Cory Collins wrote this for FanSided: "In 1995, Sanders wrote a second verse, same as the first. Only, in true Neon Deion style, it might have been a little louder."
In football, Sanders became a Dallas Cowboy. Less than a year later, they won Super Bowl XXX over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
And Sanders' time with the Reds was relatively short.

Keenan Allen Offers Instant Reaction to Mike Williams Selection
Keenan Allen was surrounded by hundreds of Chargers fans at the ESPN Zone at Disneyland when Roger Goodell strolled to the podiumJack Mewhort Youth Jersey to announce the team's first-round pick.
Perhaps no one was more excited to hear the commissioner utter the words “Mike Williams” than KA13.
“Oh, I'm hyped!” he said with palpable excitement. “I like him! I hope he's ready to come in and make plays. Just do what he can do because he can really ball.”
At 6-4, 218-pounds, Williams is a big, physical threat who attacks the ball in the air. He's earned a reputation as a clutch playmaker, forcing defenses to always account for his whereabouts. The Bolts were loaded withJavon Hargrave Authentic Jersey offensive weapons even before they added him to the fold. Allen believes Williams' mere presence is going to open things up for him.
“It's crazy. You add him to me, Tyrell (Williams), Dontrelle (Inman), Travis (Benjamin) plus Antonio (Gates), (Hunter) Henry, Melvin (Gordon); I mean, it's crazy to defend that. It's going to open things up for us. We have a lot of threats and different kinds (of receivers). Deep threats. Big guys. Guys who can run everything on the route tree. He is really going to open things up. Anything we can do to make the plays to win the game I'm all for. He's going to help us.
When Williams arrives at the team'shttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-ladainian-tomlinson-jersey-c-1_37.html facility, KA13 should be the first person he seeks out. In all, it wasn't long ago that Allen was a fresh faced rookie receiver looking to make his mark. The team's third-round pick in 2013 did just that, earning Pepsi Next Rookie of the Year honors after catching 71 passes for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns.
So what does Allen plan to tell his new teammate?
“Just be you. Come in and play with confidence. Don't hold anything back and just do what you've been doing. Everyone knows what you can do. Just be confident.”
The Los Angeles Chargers will celebrate day three of the 2017 NFL Draft at StubHub Center on Saturday, April 29. DraftFest is free and open to the public. A long list of current and former Chargers players will also be in attendance signing http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-emmanuel-lamur-jersey-c-2_49.html autographs, taking pictures and mingling with fans. Chargers confirmed to attend include Philip Rivers, Hunter Henry, this year's first-round pick Mike Williams and many more.

Minnesota Vikings Safety Agrees With Delivery Guy Who Insulted His "Tiny Dick"
Three months ago to the day, a self-described delivery guy made a drop-off to the home of Minnesota Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo where Andre Smith Youth Jersey he says he received a poor tip for his service. How this didn't become breaking news on CNN, we have no idea. Afterward, he took to his Twitter account to record his ninth tweet in just over three years, as he sent a message to Sendejo, telling him that if he was going to open the door in his undies and make him stare at his “tiny dick," then he should tip better:
Not to take such an accusation lying down, athttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-jimmie-ward-jersey-c-1_28.html least not for more than three months, Sendejo finally responded on Monday afternoon by stating that he was more offended that he was accused of being cheap than he was of being accused of having a microscopic dong:
Apparently, this penis was memorable enough, because the delivery guy can still recall it, and used its allegedly underwhelming size to try to burn Sendejo, as well as the Vikings for coming up a game shy of making the postseason:
It's nice to see people use Twitter for http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-trevor-siemian-jersey-c-1_47.html its intended purpose for once, and to see Sendejo be so at ease with his endowment. Hey, as we've reported in the past, a small penis can drive women wild.

David DeCastro No.97 on NFL Network's Top 100 list
David DeCastro became the first Steelers playerDan Mccullers Womens Jersey to crack NFL Network's top 100 list for 2017, coming in as the 97th ranked player in the league after not making the list in 2016.
NFL Network announced the 100-81st ranked players on their list on Monday night, as DeCastro is Pittsburgh's lone representative on the list so far.

The 24th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the former Stanford Cardinal broke into the starting lineup in 2013. After being named as an All-Pro for the first time in 2015, DeCastro earned his second straight Pro Bowl selection in 2016 after helping anchor an offensive line that allowed just 17 regular season sacks of Ben Roethlisberger while helping Le'Veon Bell lead the NFL in average rushing yards per game.
The 6'5, 316-pound DeCastro has been http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-orlando-franklin-jersey-c-1_44.html a model of consistency and durability, playing (and starting) in 63 of the team's last 64 regular season games.

New England Patriots: Comparing Brandin Cooks to first-round wide receivers
Are any of the wide receivers taken in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft better than Brandin Cooks of the New England Patriots?
Three wide receivers were selected in the first Cris Carter Womens Jersey round of the 2017 NFL Draft on Thursday. The New England Patriots packaged their first-round selection to the New Orleans Saints for wide receiver Brandin Cooks earlier this offseason.
Cooks entered the league as the twentieth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints. In three seasons with the New Orleans, Cooks has posted 215 receptions for 2,861 yards and twenty touchdowns. In March of 2017, the Patriots traded their 1st-round, 32nd overall pick, and 3rd-round, 103rd overall pick for the Saints 4th-round, 118th overall pick, and wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
Figuratively speaking, it could be said that New England drafted Cooks by trading their first-round pick to New Orleans in return for the wide receiver. By that precedent, how does the former Saint stack up against the draft's top wide receivers?
Three wide receivers were selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft on Thursday; among the three were Corey Davis, Mike Williams, and John Ross.
Corey Davis was the first wide receiver off the board in the 2017 draft; he was selected by the Tennessee Titans with the fifth overall pick.
Cooks doesn't possess the tall, bulky frame that Davis does, though he does sport bigger hands. Although Davis' sizable build may seem more Kyle Rudolph Kids Jersey appealing, he did not participate at the scouting combine or his pro day due to an ankle injury, whereas Cooks hadn't missed a game for New Orleans since his season-ending thumb injury in 2014.
Ultimately, Cooks biggest advantage is his experience and production against NFL talent compared to Davis' against MAC level competition. There's no denying his production at Western Michigan, however, over four years, Davis totaled 52 catches, 701 yards, and 5 touchdowns in nine games against “power five” teams, in comparison to Cooks' 84 receptions, 1,019 yards, and 8 touchdowns in 17 games against NFL playoff teams since being drafted in 2014.
With the seventh selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Chargers took Mike Williams.
Like Davis, Williams has the tall, long frame of a traditional wideout, contrasting Cooks' shorter, speedier build.
In 38 games at Clemson, Williams collected 177 catches, 2,727 yards, and 21 touchdowns, averaging 15.4 yards per reception. Although Clemson's spread offense required fewer routes, Williams experience against “power five” teams http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-joe-staley-jersey-c-1_30.html and familiarity playing in big games will help him in his transition to the pros. Cooks was drafted out of Oregon State's pro-style offense and like Williams faced several intermediate opponents within the PAC-12 conference. In 38 games at Oregon State, Cooks tallied 226 catches, 3,272 yards, and 24 touchdowns. Cooks also won the Fred Biletnikoff Award in 2013.
The third wide receiver taken in the first round was Washington's John Ross; by the Cincinnati Bengals with the ninth overall pick.
With similar measurables and testing scores, Brandin Cooks and John Ross are nearly identical. Even Bleacher Report's Matt Miller mocked Ross to the Saints with the thirty-second pick as a replacement for the departed Cooks.
Both receivers clocked blazing fast forty-yard dash times, Cooks with a 4.33-sec, Ross with the record 4.22-sec. Physically, their frames almosthttp://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-terrell-davis-jersey-c-1_20.html mirror each other, both are five-eleven or under and around 189-pounds. However, it's Cooks' frame that has proven to be more durable. Cooks hasn't missed a game in two straight seasons, Ross, on the other hand, has undergone both knee and shoulder surgeries.

The New Orleans Saints are still in the midst of the team-building period, with perhaps the biggest piece of the puzzle less than a week away, with the draft running Thursday through Saturday.
New Orleans now knows whom it will be playing, andJ.J. Wilcox Authentic Jersey when, but who will be on the field is still to be determined. The goal for the team will be to add a couple of starters during the draft and to continue to add to the roster through trades or free agency.
A few options are already known and can now be explored since Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler recently signed his tender, making him available for trade, and running back Adrian Peterson remains a free agent.
One way or another, we should finally know how the roster is shaping up by this time next week.
Here are some thoughts before the mock drafts get put away for good:
Manti Te'o's contract is heavy on incentives, and most of them are dependent on him getting ready to play. Te'o, who missed most of last season because of an Achilles injury, has an $850,000 base salary this year and much of the rest of his money can be made in bonuses. He has a $350,000 roster bonus he can earn by passing a club physical and being cleared to play between May 15 and any game this season. He'll then receive another $150,000 roster bonus for appearing in his first game. He can also earn up to $500,000 in per game roster bonuses and up to another $1 million in playing-time incentives. The linebacker's two-year deal only includes $600,000 in guarantees.
It's the silly season. You can only believe so muchBob Lilly Kids Jersey of what you hear. Everyone has an agenda, and sometimes that agenda is pushed forward by distributing incomplete information. That might have happened here last week. This space was used to relay that former Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster had a good visit with the Saints. That might not be the whole story. He might have answered some questions, but others still exist. Chances are, we won't know the whole truth about all these things, and how they're viewed, until after the draft.
The Saints have some ties to the Alabama coaching staff, which could be advantageous considering there are a few players who have questions to answer, including Foster and pass rusher Tim Williams, a former University High standout. Assistant general manager Jeff Ireland worked with offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and associate athletic director for football Ed Marynowitz in Miami. Having those connections could help New Orleans get good information on those players that might otherwise not be available.
It was interesting that former LSU running back Leonard Fournette dropped in on the Saints during their local pro day. The Saints pick 11th, and while it seems unlikely Fournette will be on the board, it was a good way to get to meet with the prospect and not use up an official visit. Whether it's through the draft or free agency, it wouldn't be surprising to see New Orleans add a running back for depth behind Mark Ingram. Ideally, the back coming in would have the ability to split out and run some routes. It's also worth noting that the possibility of signing Adrian Peterson remains alive.
Alex Okafor is betting on himself. The defensive end signed a one-year deal with a $935,000 base salary and $1 million signing bonus. But http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-nate-allen-jersey-c-2_54.html he can rack up some extra money by performing well. He'll earn $200,000 if he collects six sacks, another $300,000 if he hits 7½ sacks, and another $500,000 if he hits nine, for a total of $1 million. He can also make $200,000 for playing 55 percent of the defensive snaps and another $300,000 if he plays 65 percent of the snaps. Okafor finished with 3½ sacks last season but recorded eight in 2014.
A lot was made this week about injured players reporting for the opening phase of the offseason program. It's a good sign that guys like defensive end Hau'oli Kikaha (ACL), safety Erik Harris (ACL) and tight end Josh Hill (fibula) are in the facility, but the real barometer will come during organized team activities when we can see who is on the field. That will tell a better story about where these guys are in their recovery than anything else. But for what it's worth, cornerbacks P.J. Williams and Delvin Breaux are said to be good to go moving forward.
The Saints have a legitimate gripe about the schedule. It seems impossible that a randomly generated schedule almost always puts the team on the road for Thursday games. Dating to 2012, New Orleans has played only one of these games in the Superdome, and this year is no different with a Week 14 date in Atlanta. This needs to even out at some point with a string of Thursday games at home.
One last thought on the schedule. We can go through and mark wins and losses for each game. None of that matters. We have no idea who will be on this team come September. The Week 2 game against the Patriots might look a little bit different if the Saints land a couple of starters on defense in the draft or end up trading for http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-jeff-heath-jersey-c-2_24.html someone. Once we know who is on the roster, and how those players are developing (on both the Saints' roster and the rosters of their opponents), we'll have a better idea of how things are going to shape up. We don't have enough evidence to do any of that right now.

Year Two Vikings' breakout player: Mackensie Alexander
The Vikings have been searching forhttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-anthony-brown-jersey-c-2_69.html a slot cornerback to take over for the departed Captain Munnerlyn, but his heir might already be in Minnesota.
Taken in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Mackensie Alexander showed promise during the Vikings' preseason campaign, tying for the lead in interceptions and passes defended along with fellow rookie and Clemson product Jayron Kearse. Their performances lead to high hopes for the rookie duo, however by and large, they failed to be fully realized.
That could very well change in 2017.
With Munnerlyn now gone, the onus is on the young cornerback to fill the void, as the slot cornerback position is his to lose as the start http://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-eli-rogers-jersey-c-2_72.html of the new seasons draws ever closer. Although Alexander struggled during his rookie season, his head coach is ready to give the Florida native every chance to stake his claim.
“He's a very, very talented kid,” Zimmer said at the NFL Combine. “I was talking with coaches about this: College rules are so much different for defensive backs than they are in the NFL. That's why with defensive backs it takes a long time, especially for guys that want to get up in people's faces. That's what's disappointing about not having young guys for a longer period of time in the offseason to teach them.”
With a year of practice under his belt andDonnie Shell Youth Jersey another offseason in which to learn, Alexander, according to Zimmer, will be given the opportunity to make the position his own, adding "what he does with it is up to him" during an interview with KFAN Radio in March. If he's to realize that potential, however, he'll have to start listening to those around him.
Throughout his rookie season, various reports surfaced of Alexander's reluctance to take on advice from coaches as well as his veteran teammates, a trait that his agent has linked to trust issues that stem from his upbringing. With veterans like Terence Newman and Xavier Rhodes in the fold, he'll have to change that habit, as there's nary a more experienced duo in the NFL to learn from.
Alexander has the natural talent and supporthttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-drew-brees-jersey-c-1_14.html system to make a name for himself in the NFL, but like Zimmer said, it's up to him to take his opportunity.
If he doesn't, it won't just be him who suffers because of it.

Ian Williams: Britain's Most Traveled Trainer
By Tom Peacock
Should anyone fancy starting up a new racecourse in Britain, one guarantee is that Ian Williams will have runners there on the opening day.
One of Britain's most successful dual-code trainers King Dunlap Youth Jersey is justifiably proud of what he understands to be the unique achievement of saddling a winner at each of the country's Flat and jumps tracks, and it seems to have spawned into a minor obsession.
“I had a feeling, so I sat down with the National Trainers' Federation diary one day and started ticking of the racecourses, and I realised I only had a couple left to go,” he explained. “I don't think there's anybody else and I can't think of anybody who has done it going back over the years, more so then when you were either Flat or National Hunt. Not many people would want to travel all ends of the bloody country either, but we're so well-placed to do that, it makes it a little bit easier for us than others.”
“The last initially was Thirsk–it's a very nice course but not a great trip for us,” he added. “It took a while before eventually everything clicked and Cruise Tothelimit (Ire) won there in 2014.
“Then, of course, they reopened Chelmsford and stuck an all-weather track at Newcastle, it started the game again but we did that too luckily.”
Williams has been at Dominion Stables at Alvechurch near Birmingham, a modern and self-contained premises developed with the businessman Pat Kelly, for the vast majority of his 21 years with a licence. Not a famous training centre Jarius Wright Youth Jersey but certainly a geographical one, it allows the net to be spread far and wide.
His string of 80 is currently split around 50-50, with some crossover. Even without the likes of the injured Ballyalton (Ire) (Pierre {GB}), who provided a first Cheltenham Festival victory, he will be close to a half-century of winners during the National Hunt campaign and could reach around that figure again if the Flat year goes well.
“Jumping-wise it has been one of our best, numerically as well as prize-money,” he said. “There has been a nice uplift in quality and reliability of performance has been good. The horses have been healthy for a couple of years, which has helped enormously. We learned our lesson from a bad series of infections we had five or six years ago, we changed our procedures and our general management–that's certainly been of huge benefit.”
If not at Cheltenham, Williams's all-purpose team can deliver some exciting payoffs. Munsef (GB) (Zafonic) progressed from a Chester claimer on his stable debut to finishing 12th in the G1 Melbourne Cup just over four months later while sprinter Sir Maximilian (Ire) (Royal Applause {GB}) swiped valuable prizes at the 2015 and 2016 Dubai Carnivals.
“It makes for a good business model,” said Williams, who was tutored by National Hunt luminaries Jenny Pitman and Martin Pipe as well as Frenchman Francois Doumen, perhaps the ultimate jack of all trades. “My heart is really in the jump racing but we set up pretty good figures on the Flat. We don't aim for speedy 2-year-old types but I think we do well with the 3-year-olds and upwards.”
“Work mornings can be interesting,” he noted. “They're pretty much mixed and matched, sometimes they will work with each http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-moritz-boehringer-jersey-c-2_16.html other, depending on how much pace or stamina we want to do. Levels of work and the amount of work for the jumpers is far more than for the Flat horses but the basics are the same. Healthy, well-fed and well-exercised horses should be capable of doing their job if they're placed in the right races.”
A trace of Williams's background betrays what seems to be a methodical approach to his business. His father Billy trained the useful chaser Tom's Little Owl but his son first spent a year studying accountancy (“I found it a little tedious&#8221Wink before managing a William Hill betting shop in Devon.
“It was never my intention to train but I fell into it after working as assistant for Jenny Pitman,” he said. “I thought I'd be very privileged to have the chance to train a dozen horses at some stage, but it grew into something bigger. I suppose if had my time again I'd probably be a horse racing accountant, even though I'm not sure there's a lot more money in that than training racehorses. It would probably have been more sensible, but who wants to be sensible.”
From Fakenham to Ffos Las and Kelso to Kempton, Williams is sure to continue churning out the winners if the opportunity is there. Chester's May meeting, though, should be the most useful gauge of his smartest Flat crop for 2017.
“Speedo Boy (Fr) (Vision D'Etat {Fr}) has done very well, he won the first listed race of the season in France and will probably go for the mile-and-a-quarter Dee S.,” he revealed. “Duke Of Clarence (Ire) (Verglas {Ire}) is a horse we have for Dr Marwan Koukash and we've been preparing him for the Chester Cup, a race we won a few years ago with Bulwark (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}). Sir Maximilian ran well this winter in Dubai, even though he wasn't able to win, and it's probably the plan to have him go to Chester for the conditions event that he won last year. He's been great but he's fragile and needs to be looked after.”
He continued, “We have some nicehttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-mike-purcell-jersey-c-1_34.html handicappers–Banditry (Ire) (Iffraaj {GB}) has won three on the Flat and London Prize (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}) was looking progressive on the Flat before he went hurdling and there should be no reason why he shouldn't continue to improve.
“Glorious Goodwood winner Shady McCoy (English Channel) was well below par on his reappearance but has come back in good form and will step up on his performance I'm sure,” Williams added. “There's a lot to look forward to on the Flat.”

TAFE cops another hammering
The uncapping of sub-bachelor level student places in this week's higher education reform package will have devastating impact on the TAFE sector.
And while the government subscribes tohttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-kyle-emanuel-jersey-c-1_36.html student choice as its rhetoric of choice, it was focused tightly on universities only, said Craig Robertson, chief executive of TAFE Directors Australia.
“It is difficult to see how the package could genuinely be labelled higher education reform when it highlights the importance of student choice but fails to consider other legitimate course choices, such as in TAFE,” Mr Robertson said.
“It also raises the question as to exactly how universities would develop this new industry-focused stream to start next year, and whether it is the most appropriate use of resources.”
Under the proposal the government will allow Jarvis Jones Youth Jersey approved sub-bachelor programs into the demand-driven system from 2018 onwards.
While the programs must meet certain conditions — it meets industry workforce needs, must articulate into a full degree and is only made available to people who do not hold a prior degree — Mr Robertson said this measure would also skew students towards universities and away from the TAFE sector, which had longstanding industry relationships.
“Slicing off critical parts of TAFE and handing them to the university sector is not the way to approach tertiary reform and could adversely impact TAFE, particularly in regional Australia,” Mr Robertson said.
The government has also been cautioned about weighing its reforms too heavily toward the university sector by AiGroup chief executive Innes Willox.
“The decision to expand the demand driven funding system to approved university sub-bachelor courses may significantly adversely impact the VET sector's role in preparing job-ready graduates,” Mr Willox said. “TheJahri Evans Authentic Jersey extent to which this decision diverts students away from the VET sector to universities is a major cause for concern.”
Independent policy expert Mark Warburton agreed saying the measure spelled another devastating hit for the public vocational sector.
“The contrast with the VET sector is stark. There is little coherent strategy ensuring VET resourcing is adequate or that subsidies effectively complement the increasing student contributions for VET courses,” Mr Warburton said.
“The expansion of sub-bachelor courses in universities will allow them to absorb more upper level VET activity and in the long term this may be more expensive than if they were provided in the VET sector.”
Mr Robertson said he was concerned about the cost to students who would pay higher fees for diploma level programs at a university and would continue to accrue debt if they moved into a degree.
“The government has failed to recognise the cost effective options available at TAFE and has chosen to load the cost on to students in higher fees,” he said.
Currently commonwealth subsidies are not available to most students undertaking bachelor programs at TAFE. These students must take out a full fee higher education loan, but face an additional loading of up to 25 per cent.
“If Commonwealth funding is extended to selected diploma, advanced diploma and associate degree programs at universities, the distortion will be made worse,” Mr Robertson said.
“Students in the vocational education http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-torrey-smith-jersey-c-1_49.html and training sector will effectively have an incentive to abandon the public TAFE system and be diverted to an untested university stream supported by a new government subsidy.
“We are disappointed that the higher education reforms have been developed with little regard to moving toward a coherent tertiary sector.

It was a good move by the NFL. It keeps things connected to the team. It makes for a good feeling all around.”

Colts Hoping T.J. Green Makes Landon Collins-Type Jump In Year Two
INDIANAPOLIS – When it comes to the Cameron Heyward Authentic Jersey class of young NFL safeties, the Giants' Landon Collins is atop that throne.
Collins earned All-Pro honors last year, and was considered one of the main finalists for the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year award.
But people should not forget where Collins was following his 2015 rookie season.
Per Pro Football Focus, Collins was the NFL's 83rd ranked safety in 2015.
One year later, no safety had a higher grade than Collins.
In Indianapolis, the Colts have taken note of what Collins did from one year to the next.
They hope their own young safety, T.J. Green, can follow a similar path.
“You look at a guy like Landon Collins, thehttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-71-denzelle-good-jersey-c-1_28.html jump that he made from Year One to Year Two, defensive coordinator Ted Monachino says, “we would hope T.J. could make a similar jump.”
Green's rookie season in the NFL was not all smooth sailing.
The inexperienced safety (Green played safety for just two seasons in college) played sporadically in sub packages, with Mike Adams, Clayton Geathers and Darius Butlerabove Green on the depth chart.
“T.J. made quantum leaps in some areas (and) needs to continue to grow in a lot of areas,” Monachino says. “I don't think he played to the level he believed he could have.
“(Green's) another role guy (in 2017). We can do a lot of things with T.J. I see the arrow way up on T.J. Green.”
Projecting the role for Green in 2017 will come from how often the Colts want to use their sub packages.
Geathers and Butler are the likely starters at safety. But if Green is the first defensive back used in those sub packages, he's going to play a whole lot, possibly more than 50-60 percent of the team's defensive snaps.
Solidifying, and perhaps simplifying, a role forhttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-jack-butler-jersey-c-2_45.html Green is something that Chuck Pagano knows is key.
Pagano says he takes some responsibility for overwhelming Green a bit last year, when the Colts tried to use their rookie all over the defense, after Geathers was injured.
“When we lost (Geathers), we tried to put T.J. in some of those roles. And him trying to process and learn the safety stuff and move into some nickel linebacker spots probably wasn't fair,” Pagano says.
All offseason long, Pagano and the Colts have preached the need to get faster on the defensive side of the ball.
They don't get much faster than Green.
That's why the Colts really need an in-tune Green this fall.
“T.J., you don't found guys like that---6-3 and change and 200-plus pounds and run 4.34 (40-yard dash),” Pagano says.
“It's got to translate to the field now. From a football standpoint and football IQ and being able to learn the game, go play fast, go make plays, is going to be huge.”

Dolphins add receivers, eager to see young defensive tackles
A six-pack of Dolphins notes a day after the draft:
• By drafting Isaiah Ford in theLance Alworth Kids Jersey seventh round and adding four undrafted rookie free agent receivers, the Dolphins' message is clear: Leonte Carroo, Jakeem Grant and Rashawn Scott won't be gifted roster spots.
Now let's make this clear: Carroo and Grant remain clear favorites to make the team. None of the five receivers added is nearly as skilled a kick returner as Grant
But Ford has a legitimate shot to stick. And UM's Malcolm Lewis, Arkansas' Drew Morgan, Mississippi's Damore'ea Stringfellow and Stanford's freakishly athletic Francis Owusu will have a chance to impress.
The Dolphins haven't announced any of those free agent pickups or any others, and though those four receivers or their agents confirmed their Dolphins deals, it's uncertain if all four will be with the team for their classroom-based rookie “workshop,” so to speak, next weekend.
• Here's what the Dolphins liked about Ford:
“First of all, he's been productive for a couple of years there,” Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said. “If you watch Virginia Tech, he was a player that was always kind of the go-to guy. It was always the plan to stop him. (We) like he's a very good route runner.
He's a very smart kid when you talk to Trae Waynes Youth Jersey him, so he really understands leverages, coverages, running routes, finding the open spots in zones. So (we had) the opportunity to add a good player that late in the draft. We were surprised he was still there. I know again, he fell, because probably people said how he should have run faster; but at the end of the day, we just like to draft football players. It worked out with Jarvis (Landry). We'll see if it works out with him.”
• With guard Isaac Asiata, the appeal was not only his size, but his toughness and intelligence.
“He's very smart with a passion and a love for football,” Grier said. “His life story, he's had some adversity in his life that he's overcome, so you're kind of drawn to those guys. He's really made himself into a man and how he handles his life. On the field, he's a nasty [rhymes with stick], and that's what you like about him. He's a tough, physical, nasty mauler. We just wanted to add more of that to us.”
• What appealed to the Dolphins about LSU defensive tackle Davon Godchaux?
“He's a physical run defender,” Grier said. “When you see how he looks, he's a big square body. He's tough. He's played in those wars in the SEC, the Alabama game, those 9-6 games, the Wisconsin game. This guy is a physical, tough guy, that enjoys getting dirty, getting in there and being physical. With him, those were some of the traits we liked about him.”
FACEBOOK
• And what about Vincent Taylor?
“With Vincent (Taylor), for a big guy, he's had production,” Grier said. “He's been a pass rusher there. (He had 6.5) sacks last year, 13 tackles for loss. (He's) a bigger body guy that can be a one-gap penetrator and create a little havoc in thehttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-adrian-peterson-jersey-c-2_4.html backfield at times. Those are things, when you're at the point in the draft, (if) you can get guys with size and production for a couple of years, they are interesting prospects. We are happy to get them.”
• Mel Kiper wasn't fond of the Dolphins' draft. On ESPN.com, he gave Miami and a few other teams a C-plus. Only the Rams (C- minus) got a worse grade.
Kiper's take: “Charles Harris' dropping a few spots and falling into the Dolphins' lap helps them a bit, but I thought he was better suited to go to a 3-4 team. He might be a situational pass-rusher early in his career as he bulks up from his 6-foot-3, 253-pound frame. He needs to improve playing against the run, and that should come in time.
“Miami filled a big need with tackling machine Raekwon McMillan. I was surprised he went off the board before Zach Cunningham, however. Cordrea Tankersley is a big corner (6-1, 199) who had nine career interceptions. The Dolphins traded up for Isaac Asiata, and I gave him an undrafted grade. If they wanted a guard who could play immediately, they could have taken Forrest Lamp in Round 1. Asiata isn't that guy. Davon Godchaux, who has some off-field concerns, and Vincent Taylor
will provide depth along the interior of the defensive line.”
• Besides the Cunningham second guess, here's another we've wondered about: Why did the Dolphins cut Earl Mitchell (now with the 49ers) before determining if they could find a better veteran No. 3 defensive tackle? (They haven't added any veteran defensive tackle, let alone a better one.) And it's not like they desperatedly needed the cap space.
Among free agent defensive tackles stillhttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-jerry-rice-jersey-c-1_27.html available: Dan Williams (released by the Raiders a week before the draft), Arthur Jones, Paul Soliai, Jared Odrick, Jaye Howard (failed his Chiefs physical), Sen'Derrick Marks, Roy Miller, Sean Lissemore, Corbin Bryant, Tony McDaniel, Leger Douzable, Kedric Gholston, Devon Still and Ricardo Mathews.
The Dolphins will now get to see what they have in Godchaux and Taylor.

Re-grading Vikings' 2016 draft: WR Mortiz Boehringer
With the 180th pick in the NFL Draft, the Vikings took a gamble on German wide receiver Moritz Boehringer in the sixth round.
Boehringer was a combine darling, but http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-matt-paradis-jersey-c-1_38.html really didn't know how to play football.
After a full season on the practice squad, we can't tell you whether that changed or not, but it certainly couldn't have hurt.
Boehringer will have the chance to make the team this season. If he doesn't, the pick will look like a semi wasted pick, but for the hype surrounding him and the fact that there wasn't much risk, it's hard to blame Vikings general manager Rick Spielman.
There weren't a whole lot of notableLance Dunbar Womens Jersey players taken after him that make us say, ‘Wow, we missed on that!'
And with the Vikings losing Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson, the Vikings could certainly use Boehringer to step up.

Joshua Garnett trade redux? 49ers NFL draft targets in back of Round 1
Much has been made about the 49ers pick at second overall and the possibilities that they'll pursue. Trade-down discussionshttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-brian-robison-jersey-c-2_22.html have highlighted the team's options to get the best value with their first selection of the 2017 NFL draft.
The players worthy of the second-overall selection are limited and the 49ers may be ‘over-drafting' regardless of who they select. Conversely, the talent that will be available at the tail end of the first round will be consideredhttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-david-decastro-jersey-c-2_27.html excellent value. The players that are bunched between picks 20 and 40 are all of roughly equal ability and will be ranked by teams according to taste. Maneuvering to land the desired player will depend on a general manager's ability to isolate his target and judge the market.
The 49ers are forging ahead with a new front office but they've been off to a hot start. General manager John Lynch can imitate his predecessor by jumping into the end of the first round for a can't miss prospect. Trent Baalke surprised in 2016 by trading up into the first round to select Stanford guard Joshua Garnett, presumablyDwayne Allen Authentic Jersey moving in front of the Seattle Seahawks. A year later, the 49ers should be considering doing the exact same thing.
Let's look at five prospects that the 49ers could trade back into the first round for…
Patrick Mahomes' footwork is anything but conventional and yet he managed to complete 65.7 percent of his passes for 5,052 yards in 2016 at Texas Tech. Mahomes has the strongest arm of the entire class and can throw from multiple platforms with varied arm angles. He's unorthodox, but has above-average athleticism and a moxie that is coveted as a face of the franchise.
Mahomes could be the unquestioned best of this QB class or out of the top-3 depending on whom you ask. Shanahan, the evaluator with John Kuhn Authentic Jersey the final say when it comes to 49ers quarterbacks, should see a moldable athlete with phenomenal physical traits. Mahomes doesn't need to start to be worth a first round selection. The 49ers may have to get in front of the Houston Texans at 25 but can find a future Franchise quarterback in doing so.

Jarius Wright: The first day back was great
Jarius Wright will have every opportunity to stake his claim in 2017.
With the Minnesota VikingsJamarca Sanford Youth Jersey losing both Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson in free agency, Wright enters the offseason as the de facto No. 3 wide receiver on the depth chart, with Laquon Treadwell also vying for that status.
The veteran wide receiver might have a leg up on his second year counterpart, however for Wright, the early stages of workouts means an opportunity to get back in to the swing of things, as well as meeting back up http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-jarvis-jones-jersey-c-2_16.html with his teammates.
“The first day went really well,'' Wright said to Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “It was good to get a chance to get back in with my teammates and with all the new guys, just start building some team chemistry. It was great. I enjoyed meeting all the new players we had. It was fun being back.''
That fun may be short lived. As the Phase I aspect of the offseason program ramps up, so does the intensity of the workouts. Positional coaches, as well as head coach Mike Zimmer, are barred from participating the early training sessions, however are allowed to be present in the building.
Zimmer himself was there early in thehttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-jeremiah-attaochu-jersey-c-1_27.html day according to Wright, however departed early as he underwent yet another operation on the torn retina in his right eye. The Vikings' head man is set for one more procedure following Monday's.

Hopes are high for a noticeably bigger DeForest Buckner
SANTA CLARA — DeForest Buckner greeted the media Monday afternoon in the Levi's Stadium auditorium. He leaned into the podium James Laurinaitis Womens Jersey and put passion into his answers.
The No. 7 overall pick in last year's draft, Buckner is grasping the nuances of being a professional — and by many measurements, he's heading in the direction of becoming the next NaVorro Bowman and Joe Staley type of pillar the 49ers will lean upon for years. The evidence was littered all throughout his press conference.
We'll get to that part in a minute, but as of early April, hopes are rising for the 6-foot-7, 300-pounder. The 49ers may actually have to update his weight total on their official website. Buckner's arms, as the kids say, were yoked. Buckner arrived back in town three weeks early, and head strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright has been kicking his ass in the weight room.
“He's going to get our team right,” Buckner said. “I feel a lot stronger this year compared to last year. Hopefully I'm gaining a little bit of that grown man strength.”
A more imposing Buckner coupled with his newfangled leadership skills are very encouraging thoughts for 49ers fans. Buckner's using his relationship with Seattle's Michael Bennett to bring Ronald Blair, Eli Harold and Arik Armstead to Hawaii this July for workouts and film sessions. Buckner explained to the media how muchErnie Stautner Youth Jersey better he's gotten at watching film since he entered the NFL, changing some of his own habits and also picking up tendencies from opposing teams.
He also said he feels like he's earned the right to bark at his teammates, when necessary.
“We have to set a standard and if a guy isn't doing it right, we have to call him out on it,” Buckner said. “I'd like to think I got a little respect from last year. A lot of guys come to me and say, ‘That's your guy. You should talk to him more.' Just seeing the respect I gained from my teammates saying I should call out guys more. It's a thing that I have to do.”
The respect thing from the locker room is absolutely true. Buckner is growing up quickly in a league that weeds out top 10 picks year after year. That type of growth will happen when you're arguably the most consistent player on your defense as a rookie. Buckner flashed consistency as a pass rusher with six sacks in a flawed scheme repeatedly exposed by offensive coordinators.
Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh indicated to Buckner that he'll mostly play the big defensive end (3-Tech) in this system, which is modeled after Seattle's one-high safety scheme. It's more of a one-gap, control defense, where Buckner will be able to attack a specific area on the offensive line at a higher rate.
“Now I'm not two-gapping, I'm not holding onto blocks, more avoiding them now,” Buckner explained. “I'm excited about that. Not having to hold off a 300-pound man for two seconds and shedding and all that stuff. So, it's going to be more exciting.”
Obviously, Buckner's production will heavily rely upon his teammates. Free agent acquisition Earl Mitchell is expected to plug the middle, Armstead will slide all over the place, and Saleh revealed Aaron Lynch will be lining up with his hand inhttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-dan-mccullers-jersey-c-2_67.html the dirt at defensive end. Blair, Chris Jones and Quinton Dial will fight for time in the rotation. A majority of mock drafts are linking the 49ers to Stanford defensive lineman Solomon Thomas and in my personal opinion, Alabama's Jonathan Allen had the best tape of any player in the draft. A later round pick and an undrafted gem could emerge in training camp.
Can Buckner become a consistent 10-sack player in this defense? Why the hell not? Sophomore slumps can be a real thing in the NFL, but with greater attention paid to chasing quarterbacks, San Francisco's coaching staff is openly trying to put Buckner in a better position to succeed.
For all the Trent Baalke and Chip Kelly bashing that's gone on, the former power players in Santa Clara left the 49ers with a parting gift full of potential. You could count the bright spots on one hand last season. But without question, Buckner was one of them. And he's ready to go from bright spot to building block — should the cards fall in his direction.
“Even during the year everybody knew ithttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-20-darius-butler-jersey-c-1_10.html was unacceptable. Nobody wants to be mentioned as the 32nd team in the league,” Buckner said. “Everybody's ready to kind of redeem themselves from last year.”

How the Houston Texans found their man in Deshaun Watson
When scouting quarterbacks, evaluators dig on them differently along the way. Texans GM Rick Smith got his first strong clueBrandon Mebane Womens Jersey that Deshaun Watson might be a match for Houston from the Raymond James Stadium stands on Jan. 9.
Smith knew if he was going to draft a signal-caller three months later, whoever it was would be joining a playoff roster full of strong veterans. How would a new QB handle it? With two minutes left in the national title game, and Alabama's vaunted defense and 69 yards of Bermuda grass in front of him, Watson answered.
“It's in the heat of the moment, the enormity of the moment, they have to go down and score,” Smith explained from his office Wednesday afternoon. “And just his presence, his confidence, his poise, the way that he handled himself in that situation, in that moment, it was very impressive. … That's why I go to those games — you can see how they respond to adversity, how they react to their teammates, how they react to their coaches, different situations during the game.
“I saw just tremendous poise and I saw confidence in him. And obviously he went and performed in one of the all-time great games you'll ever see. He functioned in a very competitive and highly charged environment with a lot of poise and execution.”
You know what happened next. So Harrison Smith Womens Jersey having seen it with his own eyes, and not just what we saw on TV, Smith acted with Watson-like self-assuredness in dealing up last Thursday to go get the 21-year-old Tiger.
I figured Smith had to swallow hard before sending next year's first-round pick to Cleveland to move up 13 spots and grab Watson at No. 12. I figured wrong.
“I didn't experience it like that,” Smith said with a laugh. “My feeling about the way it was happening, it all worked the way it was supposed to work.”
In this week's Game Plan, we're going quarterback heavy — explaining what the Bears saw in Mitchell Trubisky, why the Chiefs fell for Patrick Mahomes, and how the 2018 quarterback class may well have influenced what teams did this year at the position. Plus, we'll look at the drafts of the Patriots and Jets, and so much more.
But we start with Smith — now in his 12th season as Texans GM — making the massive move that he hasn't in the past. In his previous 10 drafts (he took over just after the 2006 event), he moved up in the first round once, and that was last year when he went from 22nd to 21st overall to get wide receiver Will Fuller. The highest pick he'd spent on a quarterback was the fourth-rounder he used on incumbent Tom Savage in 2014.
So this is, without question, a departure from form for the Texans GM.
“What you're getting at, and you're right in the assumption — I value picks,” Smith said. “I do, and so to have to give up draft picks inhttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-jeff-locke-jersey-c-2_19.html order to go and acquire a player, you just have to have conviction that the player is worth whatever value is assessed. And in this instance, that was the case.”
What I wanted to get to with Smith was how he came to that conviction, and it turns out there were three important checkpoints along the way, from his perspective — the title game, the combine and Watson's visit to Houston. The tape is the tape. Everyone sees that. Trusting that a franchise-shifting investment is worth it (a year after striking out on another big one made in Brock Osweiler) is different.
So here's how Smith came to feel comfortable:
THE TITLE GAME
Watson's command of a pressure-packed situation was only part of the equation coming out of Tampa. Smith had the good fortune of sitting with a Clemson contingent and met Jessica Jefferson, who worked in the football office. They just talked, but Smith took mental notes.
“She happened to be sitting beside me for a quarter and a half, and she just raved about the type of person he was and the leader that he was,” Smith said. “And she knew (Texans receiver/Clemson alum) DeAndre Hopkins, sohttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-ian-williams-jersey-c-1_24.html we talked about different guys in the program. But she was really complimentary of Deshaun and how he operated around the program, and not just as a football player.”
So Smith's picture of the person, rather than the player, was becoming clear.

Why the Dallas Cowboys linebacker group is a disappointment
Evaluating the roster, I found the Dallas Cowboys' linebacker group to be a major disappointment. Let me tell you why…
Minutes after releasing an article Steve Atwater Authentic Jersey last week summing up the reasons Dallas Cowboys fans shouldn't care about the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft, I'm asked by “Da Boss” to do a mock draft. Like former Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo, I have decided to be a true company man and comply.
Of course, that meant evaluating the current roster and searching for room to improve. Unlike general mismanager and owner Jerry Jones, I actually have a draft day strategy which will be visible in an article released later.
To do a mock draft though, it required a total roster evaluation. It's not as simple as screaming – We need a pass rusher! I'm also not the “delusional” super fan that believes the roster is perfect. We know “that guy” who thinks every player on the Cowboys depth chart is the best in the NFL at their position because they have – The Star – on their helmet.
We have just handed over the keys to the flagship after the unceremonious dismissal of a four-time Pro Bowl quarterback after 34,183 passing yards, 248 touchdowns, 78 wins and a 65.3 career passer rating, so that position isn't up for grabs.
The running back position is stacked with Darren McFadden and pro bowlers Alfred Morris and Ezekiel Elliott. Like Phaedra Parks of The http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-rolando-mcclain-jersey-c-2_61.html Real Housewives of Atlanta says, “Everybody knows if you attended the University of Arkansas, your roster spot is secure.”
After doing this type of evaluation over the entire roster, I landed on one area. I can't say that it's a giant weakness, but more an area of disappointment.
Long time readers will expect me to start complaining about safety Byron Jones and his extremely below average play making skills at the free safety position as a first round draft pick. That's too easy. When I think of the safeties group, I picture playoff interceptions by Jeff Heath.
My disappointment lands at the feet of the linebackers, especially Anthony Hitchens. As a rookie, he was outstanding while getting quality minutes at every linebacker position. Hitchens racked up 66 tackles in 11 starts as a rookie in 2014. In 2015, he started nine games and got 39 tackles. With Justin Durant breathing down his neck, he started 16 games and got 39 tackles.
Let's play a quick game and see if you can finish this sentence. “Dude, remember that play from last year where Anthony Hitchens – (insert answer here)”. Actually, you can put the answer in the comments, that'll be fun. Don't forget to complain that I mention Romo's stats in every article too.
I might be hard on Hitchens, but he's a player thathttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-bill-bates-jersey-c-2_57.html I liked from the moment he was drafted – I wrote this article about him two years ago. He was a four year player and led the Big Ten with 124 tackles in his junior year. With the Cowboys, he became a playmaker and his future looked extremely bright. What happened to this version of Anthony Hitchens?
I hate seeing players regress, don't you? With Rolando McClain disappearing before the season like Blockbuster Video stores, Hitchens and Sean Lee should've been a deadly duo last year. Instead Damien Wilson finally emerged with 23 tackles and five starts – but I don't recall memorable plays from Wilson or Kyle Wilbur either. Lee is clearly the Michael Jackson of this group.
Next year, it's possible that Jaylon Smith could have the nerve to replace Hitchens at middle linebacker. That last sentence was so awesome, that I'm just going to wrap this up. We may soon see Lee, Smith and Wilson, but the linebacker group needs to have the nerve to improve.
If you're good at reading between Seth Roberts Womens Jersey my witty, yet insightful lines, my first round, mock draft selection won't be a surprise – (it's not a kicker).
Until then, join me in waiting for the official 2017 NFL regular season schedule to be released this Thursday.

The Oakland Raiders picked up a new crop of rookies over the weekend, but Bruce Irvin still isn't satisfied.
Irvin wants the Raiders to re-sign http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-customized-c-1_11.html free agent linebacker Perry Riley Jr. He confirmed as much in a recent tweet.
The Oakland Raiders dominated the 2017 NFL Draft. Want the latest news on the 2017 draft class sent straight to your inbox? – Sign up for our FREE Raiders newsletter now!
Irvin and Riley were high school teammates, so that's probably one reason why Irvin wants him back. Riley's fit with the Raiders, however, goes well beyond that connection.
Riley, who joined the Silver & Black in http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-hines-ward-jersey-c-2_53.html the middle of last season, was plugged into the starting lineup and made an immediate impact. He brought stability to an integral middle linebacker position that was lacking veteran experience and finished the season with 48 tackles (38 solo, two tackles for losses), a defended pass and two forced fumbles.
The Raiders signed Jelani Jenkins in free agency, but his best fit would be replacing Malcolm Smith on the weak side. They drafted a potential middle linebacker in Marquel Lee, but the fifth-round pick is no sure bet to start.
Other options on the roster include Coryhttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-donnie-shell-jersey-c-2_46.html James and Ben Heeney, late-round picks in recent drafts who failed to hold onto the starting job last season.
Reuniting with Riley, who is only 28 years old, would cap off a successful offseason for the Raiders.

If you're a Redskins fan and haven't Glenn Dorsey Authentic Jersey watched "The Perfect Murder", which is apparently a TV show on Investigation Discovery, which is apparently a TV channel, you might want to turn in for your first show sometime in early June.
That's because, according to TMZ Sports, Redskins linebacker Khairi Fortt will play deceased Redskins legend Sean Taylor in an episode portraying Taylor's murder. According to TMZ, the show episode will center around "how http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-shannon-sharpe-jersey-c-1_22.html cops helped solved [Taylor's] tragic 2007 home invasion murder."
Interestingly enough, Taylor's father will be played by Guy Fortt, who just happens to be Kairi's father.
Fortt was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 2014 and signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins in January. He's also had stints with http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-dez-bryant-jersey-c-2_11.html the Bengals, Jaguars, and Seahawks.

Cameron Heyward: ‘It's Never Going To Be Normal' Without Dan Rooney
I think that the most fascinating fact about the life of Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney is the fact that he almost literally had Bill Bates Womens Jersey some type of personal relationship with every single person who has ever worn a Steelers jersey. For many decades, of course, he was near-solely responsible for signings, though he has taken more of a backseat in the past decade while remaining intimately involved.
Rooney was an ever-present fixture at the Steelers' facilities, which the players entered for the first time yesterday since his passing. And for the few who would speak to it at the moment, it was clear that walking into the building will never be the same again.
“I saw him every day in this building”, Vince Sebastian Janikowski Youth Jersey Williams told Teresa Varley yesterday for the team's website. “Today is the first day you come in and don't shake his hand, don't see him in the building. It's odd. I think everybody is feeling the same way”.
I think that is a pretty safe proposition. There are so many stories of players who were at one point in time seemingly nothing more than camp bodies, later telling the story of how he was the first person to greet him and that he knew his name.
Ryan Shazier said that he would always ask him how the Buckeyes are doing, and when he asked, you would know that he was not simply making small talk, but was genuinely interested. He took an interest in the personal lives of his players—among others, of course—and tried to make their lives easier, like giving Jerome Bettis' parents his own tickets when they traveled on the road.
“It's never going to be normal”, said http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-michael-thomas-jersey-c-1_32.html Cameron Heyward, who recently recalled a time late last season when he was undergoing physical therapy after landing on injured reserve. Rooney walked up to him, despite going through issues of his own at the time, and asked him how he was doing, and said they would always have his back.
“We know Mr. Rooney would want us to get back to work and accomplish our goals here”, Heyward continued to tell Varley. “The only way to do that is starting on day one”. And that, too, was a common theme on the day.
“Being back here, this is what he would want us to be doing”, Ross Cockrell said. “This is a baby that he built, and grew and nurtured. We are going to do our best to sustain it for him”. For Heyward, it was a matter of showing “thanks, whether it's in winning the Super Bowl or accomplishing other goals”.
“We want to accomplish all of those in his light”, he said. “I think the most important thing you can do is continue the tradition and the legacyhttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-deangelo-williams-jersey-c-2_66.html that was left”, said Williams. “There is no better way to do that than coming in and focusing on what we have to get done”.
Even if the day doesn't start off with that handshake any longer.

Report: Big Ben is 'lobbying hard' for team to draft weapons
Ben Roethlisberger reportedly wants to makeArthur Moats Authentic Jersey sure that the cupboard is a full as possible for the 2017 season.
According to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala‏, Big Ben is "lobbying hard" for the Steelers to bring in some more offensive weapons before the start of what will be his 14th NFL season. Kinkhabwala‏'s report is in stark contrast to what Big Ben said shortly following the AFC Championship Game when he was asked by reporters if the offense was missing something that prevented them from reaching Super Bowl LI.
"I like the guys we have," Roethlisberger said.
"I still think the guys played great (in the AFC Championship Game)," Roethlisberger contined. "Eli (Rogers) stepped up big time today, worked the middle of the field. Jesse (James) had an amazing game, really saw a lot of growth outCedric Thornton Womens Jersey of him. Cobi (Hamilton) making a play here in the end and making a lot of combat catches."
Love the Pittsburgh Steelers? Then what are you waiting for? Stay in the loop and sign up for our FREE Steelers newsletter!
While Rogers and Hamilton enjoyed solid seasons in 2016, the AFC title game was not the best of games for either player. The same could be said for Sammie Coates, who -- albeit playing through mangled fingers -- dropped several passes that held Pittsburgh's offense back one game shy of the Super Bowl.
And while Pittsburgh's secondary receivers played well last season, it doesn't hide the fact that Le'Veon Bell -- for the second time in three seasons -- was the team's second leading receiver in terms of receptions, catching 75 passes in http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-ted-hendricks-jersey-c-2_29.html just 12 games. The Steelers surely want to lighten Bell's load after the team's 2016 MVP's workload caught up to him at the worst time during the AFC title game. Bell managed just six carries before leaving the game with a groin injury.
Pittsburgh granted Big Ben's wish the last time he reportedly lobbied for a new weapon to be added via the draft. In 2014, it was reported that Roethlisberger wanted the Steelers to draft a "tall" receiver. The Steelers obliged, drafting 6'4 Martavis Bryant in the fourth round. When eligible, Bryant has been a major assets to Big Ben and the Steelers offense, averaging 21.1 yards per catch during his rookie season while catching 17 touchdowns in 24 career games (including the postseason).
With Bryant's status for 2017 still up inhttp://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-paul-kruger-jersey-c-1_37.html the air, it looks as if the Steelers will bring in another weapon (or two) to help make Pittsburgh's offense even stronger for the upcoming season, while appeasing their franchise quarterback in the process.

Twenty years ago, the NFL draft was marked by one of the most fateful quarterback choices in league history: Peyton Manning's decision toBud Dupree Youth Jersey stay at the University of Tennessee for his senior year. The Jets, who had the No. 1 pick in 1997, are still reeling from the aftershocks. And it all may have been because Bill Parcells couldn't commit to what practically everyone else thought was a sure thing.
Manning's prolific NFL career can be summed up thusly: He's one of the greatest passers in history. The end. But what set Manning apart back as far back as his college days was his status as a fail-safe prospect, a franchise savior. His 17-year career with the Colts and Broncos played out largely the way most observers and fans anticipated it would. But then, as now, quarterbacks were a scarce commodity. Then, as now, front offices thirsty for quarterbacks would panic themselves into believing any old chump at the top of the prospect heap could be molded into Joe Montana or Tom Brady. But Peyton Manning was different. He was that rarest of gems. He had that generational pedigree.
Now consider what could have been had Cody Wallace Jersey he elected to declare for the draft after his junior season at Tennessee: The Jets, whose franchise history has more or less been a fruitless 40-year search for Joe Namath's replacement, were up first. In the spring of '97, the Jets were coming off a 1-15 nightmare that had shoved head coach Rich Kotite into permanent exile somewhere on Staten Island. But they had just hired Bill Parcells, whose handiwork to date included swift, massive construction projects with both the Giants and Patriots. Parcells had just taken the Pats to the Super Bowl, and the Jets had to compensate the Patriots for taking him away. There was some jousting, but in the end that compensation did not include the No. 1 pick in the draft. A Manning-Parcells pairing seemed to be inevitable.
If only it had been that simple.
David Cutcliffe told me he was “convinced” Manning would leave for the NFL after Manning's junior season. Now the head coach at Duke, Cutcliffe was Manning's offensive coordinator at Tennessee. He was so sure Manning was a goner that he had begun making preparations for a complete re-do of the Volunteers' offense.
On the night before Manning held a press conference to announce his decision, Cutcliffe said he was in Atlanta with a few other coaches tohttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-23-frank-gore-jersey-c-1_12.html meet with Dan Reeves, then the head coach of the Falcons. Cutcliffe was there learn a few new offensive concepts from Reeves. But then the phone at his hotel rang around 1 a.m. It was Manning calling. Cutcliffe described Manning as a “practical joker” who gave off every indication he would be leaving school. So Cutcliffe initially wasn't sure whether to believe him when Manning said he was staying. Manning soon let him know this was no gag.
“We went back to Knoxville right then,” Cutcliffe told me.
Rich Cimini has covered the Jets—without hazard pay—since 1985, first with Newsday, then with the New York Daily News, now with ESPN.com. He was at the Daily News at the time of Manning's decision, and he wrote a story the morning of Manning's press-conference announcement that said Manning was staying in school. Cimini got the info from what he thought was a rock-solid source. But, as Cimini wrote last year:
The headline Cimini saw splashed across page Page A-1 of the Knoxville News-Sentinel on March 5, 1997, read: “Manning's moment; Grid decision: Insiders expect him to go pro.” But the actual story was more nuanced; it cited separate sources saying two different things. As Cutcliffe's story demonstrates, it was clear Manning had kept his true feelings close to the vest. Manning even set up his announcement by delivering what Cimini described as “a 30-second preamble in which he made it sound like he was leaving school” before he finally said he was staying. Manning's stated rationale was that hehttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-dontrelle-inman-jersey-c-1_19.html only got to be a college kid once, and he wanted to milk the experience for all it was worth—a not unreasonable stance, even for a guy who risked sacrificing millions in the event of a catastrophic injury.

Five Things To Know About Ravens RB Danny Woodhead
The Ravens signed former Patriots and Chargers running back Danny Woodhead March 8 to strengthen their backfield depth. Woodhead inkedJerry Rice Youth Jersey a three-year deal worth $8.8 million, $4.25 million of which is guaranteed. The 32-year old Woodhead will likely split snaps with Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon in the Ravens' running back rotation. Here are five things to know about the nine-year veteran.
1. All-Purpose Threat
Woodhead is listed as a running back and plays mostly out of the backfield, but he's made a name for himself as one of the best pass-catching backs in the league. He has four seasons with at least 300 yards rushing and receiving on his resume, and he's also pulled in at least 40 passes in three different seasons. He eclipsed 1,000 all-purpose yards twice in four seasons with San Diego, including a 2015 performance that saw him haul in 80 passes for 755 yards and six touchdowns. He's actually caught more touchdowns (17) than he's ran for (15) in his career.
2. Small School Success Story
Woodhead was lightly recruited out of North Platte High School in Nebraska, receiving zero Division I scholarship offers despite winning Nebraska http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-terrell-davis-jersey-c-1_20.html Player of the Year honors as a senior. Instead, he got an offer from Division II Chadron State in Chadron, Neb., the same school his mother, father and brother attended. Woodhead's was the first full-athletic scholarship offer in the school's 96-year history. It was worth the wait for the Eagles, as Woodhead was a star from his first game in college. He ran for more than 1,700 yards four consecutive seasons, culminating in a then-NCAA record 2,756 yards as a junior in 2006. He left the Eagles as the NCAA's all-time leading rusher with nearly 8,000 career yards and is still second on the all-time list. He scored a touchdown in the final 37 games of his career and rushed for more than 200 yards in a whopping 19 games.
Despite his impressive college stats, Woodhead wasn't invited to the 2009 NFL Scouting Combine. Instead, he worked out at the Nebraska pro day and still compared favorably to his large-school competition. The 5-foot-8 back ran a 4.33 40-yard dash and recorded a 38.5-inch vertical leap, each of which would have been second-best among running backs at that year's combine. Even though his measurables were solid, Woodhead wasn't drafted. Instead, the Jets signed him to a deal as an undrafted free agent. He's currently the only Chadron State player in the NFL.
3. A "Young" 32
2017 will be Woodhead's 10th season in the NFL, but he should be fresher than most 10-year vets. The 32-year old running back has lost close to three full seasons due to injury during his career, including two in the last three years. Woodhead's first major injury came before he ever got on to the field. He tore his ACL during Jets training camp in 2008 and spent the entire season on injured reserve, never playing a down.
Five relatively healthy seasons followed before the injury bug hit the running back again in 2014. In the third game of the season, against Buffalo, thehttp://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-chuck-howley-jersey-c-2_15.html Chargers' Woodhead broke his fibula during the game's opening drive and missed the rest of the season. After a healthy, productive season in 2015, he lost a third campaign in 2016. In the second game of the year, Woodhead caught a pass in the backfield, and Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith hit him in the knee, tearing his ACL again. That was the last time Woodhead has played in an NFL game. With San Diego, the running back spent 2014 and 2016 on injured reserve, but he turned in two of the best seasons of his career in 2013 and 2015. He's now fully healthy and looking to continue his odd-year success with the Ravens.
4. Seeking A Ring
Woodhead hasn't yet won a Super Bowl, a hole in his resume he'll be looking to rectify in Baltimore. He came close to a championship in 2012, when he reached Super Bowl XLVI with the Patriots. In that Super Bowl against the Giants, Woodhead ran for 18 yards on seven carries, but he was most instrumental through the passing game, as he pulled in four receptions for 42 yards. One of the four catches came with eight seconds left in the first half and went for a four-yard touchdown that gave the Patriots a 10-9 halftime lead.
The 200-pound running back has played in 10 playoff games throughout his nine-year career, six with the Patriots and four with the Chargers. He's totaled more than 330 yards in those 10 games, but his best performance came in 2010, when he caught six passes for 52 yards and added 46 yards rushing against the suffocating Jets defense in a Divisional Round matchup. The Patriots lost that game, 28-21. Woodhead hasn't been to the playoffs since 2014.
5. Introspective
Early in the 2016 season, Woodhead wrote "A Letter to My Younger Self," an article that appeared in the Players' Tribune and gave advice to his 18-year old self on how to handle all of the adversity he'd face in college and in the NFL. In the article, the running back explained how worried he was that he'd never get to playhttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-otis-sistrunk-jersey-c-2_27.html football again after tearing his ACL the first time in 2008. He also detailed his eventual drive to return and how he's come to believe the injury was the "best thing to ever happen" to him, because he was able to learn from the team's veterans while recovering.

'Concussion' movie about Steelers teammates
Former Steelers center Dermontti Dawson — a seven-time Pro Bowl selection who played for the team between 1988 and 2000 — was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012 and has since moved on to a career Donte Moncrief Youth Jersey consulting with potential NFL draft picks about the draft process in addition to remaining active within the NFL community. He sat down with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette sports podcast to discuss topics including his new line of work, his thoughts on today's Steelers and some memories of former teammates. Below are some excerpts from our conversation, which you can listen to in its entirety by clicking the play button on the SoundCloud file embedded above, or by downloading it and taking it on the go with your smartphone.
On Maurkice Pouncey, the man who now plays Dawson's old position for the Steelers and has made four Pro Bowl appearances...
“Comparing Maurkice to myself, I think is kind of unfair, but Maurkice is one heck of an athlete, man. And looking at him now, beingTrevor Siemian Youth Jersey healthy, he's playing at that same high level ... I'll tell you what. He is a phenomenal player. And I think if he keeps at the same level that he's playing right now, there's no doubt that he's going to be making Pro Bowls year after year if he stays healthy. He is a phenomenal athlete.”
On “Concussion,” the movie released earlier this year centered around some of his former teammates who struggled with CTE...
"All three of those guys, with Mike [Webster], Terry Long and Justin Strzelczyk, all three of those guys I played with. So I had tears in my eyes, when you're seeing how things progressed with Mike, because I didn't know that Mike was suffering from some of the symptoms that he was, nor did I know Justin was suffering ashttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-ernie-stautner-jersey-c-2_51.html well. It's really tough to see that because you're around those guys all the time, and you think that you would pick up on certain things, but Mike, I only got a chance to play one year with in ‘88, and then he went to Kansas City in ‘89 and ‘90. And then he retired. Justin Strzelczyk, I played with him for quite a few years, and then Terry Long, I played with him for just a few years, and even though we were close, sometimes you still don't see it because guys kind of hide what's going on and really, us as men, I think our downfall is sometimes we're too prideful. And we don't ask for help and we don't let people know that things are going on in our lives. And pride comes before the fall. That's what happened. And as tragic as it is, it was a tough thing to watch. ... I liked the movie.”
On the importance of the Pro Bowl for today's players...
“It's cool just to go there as an honor and be there amongst some of the best players in the NFL and be able to just kind of socialize with them. Get to know them better. Get to know their families. Even today, being retired for 16, 17 years, I still keep in touch with some of those guys at all these other events that I go to. ... That's the reason why it's important for guys to go experience the Pro Bowl, and I think they should honor their nomination of playing in the Pro Bowl, because those are life-longhttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-javon-hargrave-jersey-c-2_28.html friends that you'll have for the rest of your life. Because it is almost like a fraternity.”

Maybe I'm crazy, but I was happy the Steelers didn't have a chance to pick Jabrill Peppers. I don't really know how highly the Steelers had Peppers rated, or whether he would've been chosen over T.J. Watts, but I just neverVontae Davis Womens Jersey understood what was so attractive about Peppers.
* His versatility made for some interesting highlights, but too much of that stuff would devolve into gimmickry in the NFL, and exactly how much value would Peppers as a running back bring to a team that already employs Le'Veon Bell?
* But what really made no sense to me were the assertions, the belief, that Peppers would become “the next Troy Polamalu.” Based on what, I have no idea, but the whole concept of chasing “the next (insert name of great player here)” is a fantasy. When has that ever worked out in sports? Any sport? Even with any coach in any sport?
* There's a chance that a football team might have one great quarterback follow another, or have one great receiver follow another, but the idea that there can be a duplication of style, to me, can be the kind of thing that bogs down a front office with a fool's errand.
* The next Joe Greene? The next Sandy Koufax? The next Jack Ham? The next Michael Jordan? The next Mel Blount? Those players were singular talents and unique individuals, and any effort made to duplicate what they once contributed Joe Barksdale Youth Jersey or who they once were as players is wasted time. They were one of a kind. That's what made them so special in the first place.
* The next Chuck Noll? Imagine the waste of time and effort and talent on the roster if Dan Rooney went searching for that instead of simply hiring the best man for the job among the available candidates. Bill Cowher was an emotional and demonstrative coach on the sideline, and he saw value in motivating his players, which in fact made him the polar opposite of Noll, who regularly told his players, “If I have to motivate you, I'll fire you.”
* The same with Mike Tomlin in following Cowher. The differences in their sideline demeanors are evident, and yet both men found ways to be successful while staying true to themselves. The last coach the Steelers hired before turning things over to Noll was a former Packers assistant named Bill Austin, who came to Pittsburgh and tried to do the job the way he had seen Vince Lombardi do it in Green Bay. Austin was 11-28-3 and fired after three seasons.
* Maybe Peppers develops into an All-Pro player, but if that happens it won't be because he's the next Troy Polamalu. It will be because he maximized his abilities as the first Jabrill Peppers, and my fear was that in Pittsburgh there would've been too much interest in looking for him to be The Next Troy Polamalu. Maybe by the coaches in how he would have been deployed, but definitely by the fans in what was expected in terms of impact and style of play.
* Of the Steelers' eight draft choices, threehttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-michael-harris-jersey-c-2_27.html made pre-draft visits to the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex: Joshua Dobbs, James Conner, and Keion Adams. And it's worth noting that Conner, because he attended Pitt, was considered a local prospect and didn't even count against the limit of 30 visitors. Some additional perspective: the team's No. 1, No. 2, No. 3a, No. 5, and No. 6 picks did not visit.
* Keep this in mind next year when some website pirating the Steelers name and logo breathlessly informs the public about pre-draft visitors, with the implication that there is some direct correlation between visitors and picks.
* On the Monday before the draft began, General Manager Kevin Colbert assessed the talent pool this way: “On offense, there are good numbers at wide receiver. The offensive line probably isn't as deep as it has been in recent years. The tight end numbers are up some over recent years. There are good numbers in the secondary. There are good numbers for the outside linebacker candidates. Decent numbers for the defensive line.”
* To attach numbers to his assessment, there were 15 combined guards and centers picked, 32 receivers, 56 defensive backs, and 32 linebackers.
* One of the fallacies of this draft was the notion that it would be OK for a team looking for help in the defensive backfield to wait before picking one because there was such depth of talent there. History might prove that there in fact was a lot of depth of talent among the defensive backfield prospects, but teams certainly didn't wait long to pick from that pool.
* There were 30 defensive backs among the first 101 overall picks (29.7 percent), and at the time of the Steelers' second-round pick, which http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-jeff-locke-jersey-c-2_19.html was the 62nd overall, they were looking at the 20th overall defensive back vs. the sixth overall wide receiver, as an example. When Oakland made Obi Melifonwu the 24th pick of the second round, the 56th pick overall, it represented an all-time NFL Draft record for number of defensive backs selected to that point.

Patrick Robinson congratulates history-making Norman Manley Law School team
KINGSTON, Jamaica — Distinguished jurist and judge of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Patrick Robinson this morningHauoli Kikaha Kids Jersey congratulated a team from the Norman Manley Law School on placing second in the prestigious Phillip C Jessup Moot Court competition, bettering their previous best of a top four finish.
Robinson served as a judge in the finals of this year's competition, in which the Norman Manley Law School was a competitor for the first time.
The Jamaican jurist was sworn in as a judge of the international court in February 2015 to serve a three-year term, thereby becoming the only Jamaican and the second Caribbean person to serve on the ICJ in its 70-year history.
The letter in full:
The Editor Sir,
The Phillip C Jessup Moot Court is theShannon Sharpe Youth Jersey most prestigious International Law Moot Court in the world. I was a Judge for the final round of this year's competition that took place in Washington DC USA, on April 15th, 2017. The other Judges were James Crawford, who, like myself, is a Judge of the International Court of Justice and Bruno Simma, a former Judge of that Court.
Prior to the start of the competition, I asked the organisers who were the two finalists. I was told that the rules of the competition prohibited the disclosure of that information to the Judges.
When the Respondents started to present their case I got the shock of my life- their accent sounded familiar. They were in fact students of the Norman Manley Law School, Kingston, Jamaica. In the finals, the Judges ruled in favour of the Applicants, a team from Australia.
The significance of the Jamaican team's achievement in placing second in this contest is illustrated by the following statistics. In terms of international law moot courts, the Phillip C Jessup Moot Court has the widest globalhttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-franco-harris-jersey-c-2_38.html coverage, with 640 Law Schools from 95 countries participating. At the two-week stage of the competition in Washington that ended on April 15th 2017, 143 Law Schools participated. To reach the final, the Norman Manley Law School students had to win 8 consecutive debates, sometimes debating twice in a day.
The moot covered several areas of international law, including the use of transboundary aquifers, the protection of cultural heritage, the human right to water and food, and the question of a host state's right to compensation for refugees. The issues raised were diverse and complex. The Jamaican students had an excellent grasp of the facts and the law. The Norman Manley Law School was represented by Jhade Lindsay, Victor Brown, Scott Mullings, Kalisia Miller and Anna-Kay Brown, coached by Marc Ramsay, an attorney-at-law.
Norman Manley would have been proud of thehttp://www.authenticsteelersshop.com/shop-by-players-joe-gilliam-jersey-c-2_71.html performance of these students. I am tremendously proud of their achievement and so should every Jamaican.
Sincerely,
Patrick Robinson
Judge
International Court of Justice
The Hague

Different general manager, different fortunes for the Edmonton Eskimos in the CFL draft?
Under Ed Hervey, the club failed to seeDonte Moncrief Authentic Jersey a single Canadian draft pick develop into a starting role during his four years of calling the shots around Commonwealth Stadium.
Part of that had to do with rolling the dice on futures prospects – up-and-coming Canadians who sparked interest in the NFL looking to exhaust any and all opportunities before eventually coming northward, if they ever do – including Stefan Charles, Tevaun Smith and Arjen Colquhoun.
While it can sometimes be worth risking early draft picks for the chance at having some tantalizing talent land on your doorstep somewhere down the line, none of Edmonton's recent gambles have yet to step foot in the CFL.
But that's not to say new Eskimos GM Brock Sunderland is opposed to considering futures
“I'm a value guy, so it depends on where they're at and what round they're in and how high they go,” said the former Ottawa RedBlacks assistant GM, who's only been sitting in the big chair in Edmonton since April 25. “If they'reDrew Kaser Youth Jersey going to be a first-round, sure-fire pick then I'll probably lay back a little bit.
“It also depends on where the organization is and this organization's very stable so it can be a little more patient.”
At the same time, the Eskimos have some more immediate roster matters to tend to.
This draft will be an interesting on for Edmonton, who holds the fifth-overall pick as the first of eight selections. Not only because of the change in GM, but also because the team has geared up to switch how their Canadian ratio works on defence after getting rid of a Canadian defensive tackle spot previously patrolled by Eddie Steele and Don Oramasionwu.
Instead, there will be another American on the interior of the defensive line next to perennial all-star Almondo Sewell, while they brought in Canadian and former NFLer Cory Greenwood in free agency to take over the WIL linebacker spot where NFL-bound Deon Lacey, and Dexter McCoil before him, had shone.
So it wouldn't be surprising to see them try to bolster their depth there a little sooner in the draft than the typical special-teams linebacking fodderhttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-customized-jersey-c-2_57.html necessary to fill ratio requirements.
The sudden retirement of starting Canadian wide-out Nate Coehoorn last month had to throw a wrench into their plans for the receiving corps, which also saw the re-addition of Shamawd Chambers while Devon Bailey left to join the Montreal Alouettes as a free agent.
This is the same Eskimos club that chose to go with future prospects with their first two picks a year ago, which also included a rare occurrence where they didn't draft an offensive lineman. While they reported at the time they were happy with their O-line depth, it certainly doesn't hurt having a hungry youngster come in to push the established heavies.
ZERO TO 18
Chris Morris has been around long enough that he doesn't need a crystal ball to make a pigskin prediction.
The head coach of the University of Alberta Golden Bears football program wasn't too heartbroken that none of his players heard their name called in last year's draft.
After all, the Bears have contributed current Eskimos offensive linemen Simeon Rottier (first overall, 2009) and David Beard (16th overall, 2015) via the draft, as well as former Eskimos centre Gord Hinse (11th overall, 2009).
While the program has seen its share of ups and downs over the past four seasons under Morris, no more can the individual talent that has been developing along the way be denied.
“As the next few years go by, we're going to have quite a few kids drafted out of our program,” Morris, himself a first-round draft http://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-scott-crichton-jersey-c-2_51.html pick (eighth overall) of the Eskimos in 1992, said ahead of last year's CFL draft.
Fast-forward to the 2017 edition on Sunday and there are 18 Bears up for grabs, compared to none even making a blip on the radar a year ago.

Jarius Wright: The first day back was great
Jarius Wright will have every opportunity to stake his claim in 2017.
With the Minnesota Vikings losing both http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-bradley-pinion-jersey-c-1_9.html Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson in free agency, Wright enters the offseason as the de facto No. 3 wide receiver on the depth chart, with Laquon Treadwell also vying for that status.
The veteran wide receiver might have a leg up on his second year counterpart, however for Wright, the early stages of workouts means an opportunity to get back in to the swing of things, as well as meeting back up with his teammates.
“The first day went really well,'' Wright said to Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “It was good to get a chance to get back in with myhttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-travis-frederick-jersey-c-2_54.html teammates and with all the new guys, just start building some team chemistry. It was great. I enjoyed meeting all the new players we had. It was fun being back.''
That fun may be short lived. As the Phase I aspect of the offseason program ramps up, so does the intensity of the workouts. Positional coaches, as well as head coach Mike Zimmer, are barred from participating the early training sessions, however are allowed to be present in the building.
Zimmer himself was there early in the day according Johnny Unitas Womens Jersey to Wright, however departed early as he underwent yet another operation on the torn retina in his right eye. The Vikings' head man is set for one more procedure following Monday's.

Irish, linemen reap rewards of extended stays
Harry Hiestand is used to his offensive linemen deferring an opportunity to enter the NFL draft so they can instead spend another http://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-jeff-locke-jersey-c-2_20.html season with him.
(What's next for the Fighting Irish? Click here to sign up NOW for our free Notre Dame newsletter!)
Zack Martin, the 16th overall pick in the 2013 draft, elected to stay for a fifth year. The sixth overall pick last April, Ronnie Stanley, chose to return, too, after contemplating his future after his junior season.
The trend continued this offseason when left guard Quenton Nelson and left tackle Mike McGlinchey opted to return, a decision that means the Irish's offensive line is almost entirely intact from last season.
Part of the reason Hiestand believes offensive linemen maxing out there time at ND has become a trend is because of the tight-knit nature of the position group.
"He loved playing football at Notre Dame," Hiestand said of Martin. "He loved offensive line and his brother (Nick Martin) was here. (Chris) Watt's likeJordan Berry Youth Jersey a brother to him, too, and that's how these guys kind of get. They get very close to each other. They really care about each other, but they do, they have a special feeling for this university and guys don't always want that to end."
Making the decision to return requires players to take a big-picture approach rather than focusing on the opportunity to cash in on the NFL a year early.
"We know there's a lot of life ahead," Hiestand said, "but sometimes when they think smart they realize they'll have plenty of times to do those other things and this is a brief part of your life that you have here."
In the case of Zack and Nick Martin, five years wasn't enough.
The Indianapolis natives appeared together at practices in late March, taking the Irish's younger linemen under their wing in between drills.
"They love sitting in the meetings and watching the film and just kind of being part of it," Hiestand said. "It's great to see that they're willing to give back their time.
"They can't help themselves (from coaching players). More encouragement and keep fighting and those kinds of things as opposed to the technical part, but just encouraging them. Both those guys always had an awesome demeanor every dayhttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-cornellius-carradine-jersey-c-1_13.html they were here."
By watching the Martin brothers, players are able to take away some valuable lessons.
"No matter how bad they felt you could never look at a Martin and go, 'He doesn't feel good today,'" Hiestand said. "It's a great lesson for these players that you can't let your opponent see that they got you a little bit. They know your ankle's hurting, your shoulder's hurting, you don't feel good. Those two are one of the best examples in college I've ever had. That alone is great because they just pop in."
Zack Martin, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, reaped the rewards of returning to ND for a fifth year. McGlinchey has already benefited from the Irish's improved strength and conditioning program, and Hiestand expects the fifth-year senior to further increase his appeal to NFL scouts by cutting down on a plethora of false starts he was penalized for last season.
Playing on an offensive line with four returning starters is essential to cutting down on penalties, Hiestand said.
"It wasn't as much (moving from right tackle to left tackle) as playing around guys that hadn't played a lot," Hiestand said of McGlinchey's false starts. "Just having an incredible desire and determination to do well and to help others do well. Mike's big thing is he's always trying to get everything to work and he kind of forgets Terrance Williams Authentic Jersey about himself sometimes.
"Really, it was not sides as much of trying to do much and trying to make sure everybody else is squared away and boom, he pops early. He's been much better with that this spring and that won't be an issue down the road. It was a product of that."

Report: Some in 49ers think Kaep likes social work over football
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick still Customized Youth Jersey hasn't found a new team after opting out of his contract with the 49ers in March, and there haven't been any reports lately of teams showing interest. But if no NFL teams come calling this year, maybe Kaepernick will be just fine continuing with the social work he's been performing outside of football.
In his recent MMQB column, Peter King says there are some within the 49ers organization who believe Kaepernick could prefer to do just that rather than go back to the gridiron.
"Kaepernick has bought a place inhttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-scott-crichton-jersey-c-2_51.html downtown Manhattan and lives in the big city fairly anonymously," wrote King. "I spent a long draft weekend with the Niners in California, and there are those in the building who think Kaepernick might actually rather do social justice work full-time than play quarterback."
Kaepernick hasn't spoken about his football status in recent months and has surfaced occasionally in regards to his social work, such as his recent donation of custom-made suits outside a New York city parole office, a donation of $50,000 to Meals on Wheels, and his involvement in a famine relief effort for Somalia. He's currently among a group of unsigned veteran quarterbacks that includes Ryan Fitzpatrick, Blaine Gabbert, Robert Griffin III, and Shaun Hill. Kaepernick started 11 games for the 49ers last season but they have moved on from Kaepernick, electing instead to sign Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley in free agency while adding C.J. Beathard in the draft. There's always ahttp://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-30-djoun-smith-jersey-c-1_17.html chance something could open up for Kaepernick in the future, whether it's from a team looking for more quarterback depth or if opportunities arise due to injury, but for now, all seems quiet regarding his immediate chances of finding a team.

Cameron Heyward: ‘It's Never Going To Be Normal' Without Dan Rooney
I think that the most fascinating factAntonio Gates Youth Jersey about the life of Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney is the fact that he almost literally had some type of personal relationship with every single person who has ever worn a Steelers jersey. For many decades, of course, he was near-solely responsible for signings, though he has taken more of a backseat in the past decade while remaining intimately involved.
Rooney was an ever-present fixture at the Steelers' facilities, which the players entered for the first time yesterday since his passing. And for the few who would speak to it at the moment, it was clear that walking into the building will never be the same again.
“I saw him every day in this building”, Vince Williams told Teresa Varley yesterday for the team's website. “Today is the first day you come Markus Wheaton Youth Jersey in and don't shake his hand, don't see him in the building. It's odd. I think everybody is feeling the same way”.
I think that is a pretty safe proposition. There are so many stories of players who were at one point in time seemingly nothing more than camp bodies, later telling the story of how he was the first person to greet him and that he knew his name.
Ryan Shazier said that he would always ask him how the Buckeyes are doing, and when he asked, you would know that he was not simply making small talk, but was genuinely interested. He took an interest in the personal lives of his players—among others, of course—and tried to make their lives easier, like giving Jerome Bettis' parents his own tickets when they traveled on the road.
“It's never going to be normal”, said Cameron Heyward, who recently recalled a time late last season when he was undergoing physical http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-45-matt-overton-jersey-c-1_22.html therapy after landing on injured reserve. Rooney walked up to him, despite going through issues of his own at the time, and asked him how he was doing, and said they would always have his back.
“We know Mr. Rooney would want us to get back to work and accomplish our goals here”, Heyward continued to tell Varley. “The only way to do that is starting on day one”. And that, too, was a common theme on the day.
“Being back here, this is what he would want us to be doing”, Ross Cockrell said. “This is a baby that he built, and grew and nurtured. We are going to do our best to sustain it for him”. For Heyward, it was a matter of showing “thanks, whether it's in winning the Super Bowl or accomplishing other goals”.
“We want to accomplish all of those in his light”, he said. “I think the most important thing you can do is continue the tradition and the legacy http://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-corey-liuget-jersey-c-1_9.html that was left”, said Williams. “There is no better way to do that than coming in and focusing on what we have to get done”.
Even if the day doesn't start off with that handshake any longer.

To this day, when Louis Lipps is out and about around Steelers fans, he hears the old familiar cheer. ‘Louuuuu,' fans will yell, sometimesColin Kaepernick Authentic Jersey just passing him on the street, sometimes on the way into Heinz Field, just about anywhere he still hears it.
But nothing, absolutely nothing, compared to hearing it at Three Rivers Stadium when he made a big reception.
“I almost get the question asked of me every time I go somewhere,” said Lipps. “‘What is it like?' I could sit here and tell you 20 different stories. But you actually have to be down there and listen to it. I had goose bumps as big as marbles on my arms and throughout my body. It just makes you want to go out there and do something fantastic or something big just to hear that crowd go crazy and scream your name. The fans in the stadiums make you do things that when you see it on film, you look up at yourself and think, ‘How the heck did I do that?' And that's because of people in the stadium, they make you do unbelievable things.”
Lipps, who is from New Orleans, Louisiana and played his last season with the Saints, remained in Pittsburgh after his playing days because of that love affair with the city and the fans.
Lipps weighed in more on his relationshiphttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-lp-ladouceur-jersey-c-2_45.html with the fans, and a variety of other topics, in this exclusive interview:
What's your best memory of your playing career?
“There were a few of them. I guess it would have to be my very first game I played in Three Rivers Stadium against Kansas City, which happened to be one of my best games. As far as a memory of actually playing, that would be it. I was voted team MVP, which is pretty cool when the players in the locker room think that much of you. Not only did it happen once, it happened twice.”
Who had the biggest impact on your career?
“I've never been on a team where you're fighting for a position and the guys you're fighting with are helping you with that position. I would hate to have to put a number on the people that were instrumental, but there was a bunch of them. John Stallworth, Chuck Noll, Calvin Sweeney, Tom Moore. You had people that were seeing great things in you when you didn't even get a chance to see them in yourself at that particular time. They saw them way before you did, and that just makes you realize to keep going, keep chomping at it, and that made for some amazing things in my career.”
What was it like playing for Chuck Noll?
“Playing for Chuck, he wanted to make sure that if you were going to play for him, you were going to run his offense and run his defense, and run it the right way. That meant studying, paying attention to detail, doing the little things. If http://www.authenticcowboysstore.com/shop-by-players-chris-jones-jersey-c-2_20.html you do the little things right, the big things are going to happen. Even today that has carried on with me. I speak for myself, but I think a lot of the former players would be right there with me to put a check mark right by that statement.”
What did it mean for you to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers?
“My high school colors were black and gold, my college colors were black and gold, so my cousin said, ‘Naturally, I knew you were going to Pittsburgh.' And that's what happened. But playing in Pittsburgh was special for me. It was the first time for me actually getting out and living on my own, making my own way of life. Here in Pittsburgh you feel so attached to the fans because the fans are so attached to us. That's what makes it special. It makes you want to go out there and perform, not only for you and for your coaches and your other teammates, but for the people that would do anything for you. Playing in Pittsburgh is just a special place to play.”
Is it special that you still have a bond with the fans?
“You'd be surprised at what some of them Sean Smith Kids Jersey would say after you take a picture with them, sign an autograph for them. They'll tell you, ‘Good luck next year.' I'm like, ‘You know I don't play anymore.' But it really is neat. You don't hear very many other players from other teams talking the way former players from the Steelers talk.”

DeMarcus Ware Working With Tyrone Crawford And Solomon Thomas
In his retirement press conference, former Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware hinted that he wanted to be a part of mentoringMichael Hoomanawanui Youth Jersey and helping future generations of defensive linemen. It didn't take long for Ware to get started with just that.
On Thursday night, Ware tweeted out pictures of him working out with current Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford and former Coppell star Solomon Thomas. Thomas was drafted third overall by the San Francisco 49ers last week at the NFL Draft.
Crawford is looking improve on his 2016 http://www.authenticbroncosshop.com/shop-by-players-shaquil-barrett-jersey-c-1_37.html season where he finished with 28 tackles and 4.5 sacks. Dallas has been looking to address the pass rush and with Crawford working with one of the greats along with the selection of Michigan defensive end Taco Charlton, the Cowboys could be in very good shape heading into 2017.
Thomas's stock rose at Stanford after a first-team All Pac-12 selection and a dominant MVP performance in the Sun Bowl for his finalhttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-matt-asiata-jersey-c-2_51.html college game. Thomas was one of three DFW players selected in the first six picks (Myles Garrett and Jamal Adams) and Thomas should be able to make an immediate impact.

For many, football is truly a year-roundhttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-blaine-gabbert-jersey-c-1_8.html sport. Even though the 2017 NFL draft just ended, many scouts and draft analysts hardly take any time off before diving into next year's draft class. Count ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay among those already working towards 2018, as he just unveiled his new mock draft.
While mock drafts are far from accurate predictors of how the event ultimately plays out, they do serve a useful purpose in helping readers get to know the prospects and what they can potentially bring to NFL teams. Not only that, but it gives insight into what the prognosticator thinks about where a team will end theirhttp://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-darrius-heywardbey-jersey-c-2_42.html upcoming season.
McShay seems to think Dallas will once again have the best record among teams who lose in the divisional round, and has the Cowboys taking University of Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea.
Vea was a starter along the Huskies' defensive line last season, and chose to return to school as a fourth year junior. It's possible Vea could've been an early round draft pick this year, as he possesses an intriguing blend of pure size and athleticism. Dallas has a lot of bodies along it's defensive line, but DT Cedric Thornton has a Merril Hoge Authentic Jersey potential opt-out after this season, and newly signed DT Stephen Paea is on a one-year deal. There's a chance the Cowboys could be looking for a new anchor along their defensive line next year.
Looking at the salary cap, Dallas has two expensive players at defensive tackle who have yet to prove they are worth their contracts.
Tyrone Crawford received a hefty extension prior to 2015 and seems to have already lost his starting job to 2016 third-round selection Maliek Collins. Thornton was signed in the 2016 offseason out of Philadelphia but couldn't beat out Terrell McClain for the top spot. Both will have a chance to prove themselves in 2017, but if things remain on their current trajectory there could be room at the currently-crowded inn.
Dallas did draft a pair of late-round DTs in Ernie Stautner Youth Jersey Joey Ivie and Jordan Carrell, but both players face long odds towards cracking the Cowboys' eventual final roster. Still, a lot can happen between now and the 2018 draft, and with another strong season, it's plauisble Vea could be in play as a future Cowboys draft target.

One of the areas of the game in which Pittsburgh Steelers fans have been critical in recent years has been in the special teams Antonio Gates Kids Jersey department, particularly when it comes to returns, but injuries in recent years have also seen sporadic lapses in the coverage units as well, which have not been as good as they could be.
It doesn't help that the Steelers are looking at losing, or have already lost, some of their best special-teams players in recent years. As much of a favorite whipping-boy he may have become for his defensive capabilities, the departure of Antwon Blake was a blow to the unit.
It's certainly looking as though the team is prepared to part ways with Shamarko Thomas, who has been the team's best gunner in the past couple of seasons, after electing not to re-sign him when he hit free agency, and he remainsDonnie Shell Womens Jersey available. It's also a distinct possibility that another special-teams standout, Darrius Heyward-Bey, fails to make the roster.
These losses will naturally have to be compensated for, and there are plenty of good names to choose from coming out of the Steelers' 2017 NFL Draft class. It should go without saying that the Steelers did not draft these players—sans Colin Holba—for their ability to contribute in the third phase of the game, but it is a critical role, and it often falls to young reserves.
Potential contributors start right at the top with first-round outside linebacker T.J. Watt. If that sounds surprising to you, it shouldn't. If you look back to the 2015 season, both former first-round outside linebackers Jarvis Jones and Bud Dupree each contributed roughly 100 snaps of special-teams work.
I have a feeling that second-round widehttp://www.officialvikingssale.com/shop-by-players-brandon-fusco-jersey-c-2_34.html receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is eager to start smacking people on special teams, personally. He has already stated his willingness to “do anything possible to bring the Steelers back to the Super Bowl, whether that's special teams”, among other duties.
And you know James Conner, another offensive player, will get his load of work there, something that Head Coach Mike Tomlin talked about after the draft, citing his history also contributing on the defensive side of the ball at the high school, and in spot work, even the college level. He likes to hit.
It's interesting that the Steelers added two very physical and aggressive offensive players, by the way, which, perhaps, some might have felt lacking in a more finesse offense in recent years.
Pittsburgh also added a pair of cornerbacks, which is often the bread and butter of many critical special teams roles, and you know Tennessee team captain Cameron Sutton is going to embrace that role. Brian Allen and Sutton could both benefit from special-teams assignments, frankly, when it comes to sharpening their teeth for the physicality of defense at the NFL level.
Bypassing the obvious contributions of Holba, we get to Keion Adams in the seventh round. His scouting report, frankly, reads like that of a special teamshttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-customized-jersey-c-1_11.html player. Perhaps Joshua Dobbs won't be chasing down any returners this year, but outside of their fourth-round selection, it seems as though any draft pick that makes this roster will be likely to put his hand in the pile to try to revamp the Steelers' special teams.

Are Ron Jaworski And Merril Hoge Also Out At ESPN? Ed Werder Says So
Ron Jaworski and Merril Hoge may havehttp://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-blaine-gabbert-jersey-c-1_8.html joined a long line of analysts who have been let go by ESPN, if another former ESPN employee is to be believed. Ed Werder, who announced his own layoff last week right before the NFL draft, seemed to break the news on his podcast when he let the following bit of information go:
Jaworski and Hoge have been silent about their statuses at ESPN but it would not be a surprise if both were let go now that the 2017 NFL Draft is over. Hoge has been with ESPN since 1996, and Jaworski has been there since 2006. Jaws replaced Joe Theismann as the color commentator on Monday Night Football in 2007 andhttp://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-lp-ladouceur-jersey-c-2_45.html remained an analyst after the network decided to go with Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden in the booth in 2012. Bill Hofheimer with ESPN NFL PR would not confirm or deny any specific names regarding ESPN personnel moves, when asked about Hoge and Jaworski.
There was no way the four-letter was going to let Jaworski go before the draft in Philadelphia, a place he played for 10 seasons. He's an icon in that city and firing him on the eve of the draft would have been a public relations nightmare. Jaworski, in fact, appeared alongside Commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday night to kickoff the second day of the draft.
In fact, after Werder shared this story on his Chris Jones Kids Jersey podcast as well, and it sounds like Goodell may even more angry if news of Jaworski is true:
It seems crazy that the ESPN departures are still leaking out and there is no indication this is the last of them.

Top free agent cornerbacks left for Tennessee Titans

Top free agent cornerbacks left for Tennessee Titans
What is left on the market for the Tennessee Titans.
The one question I see morehttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-marquette-king-jersey-c-2_44.html than anything now that the 2017 NFL Draft is over, is if we should expect the Tennessee Titans to add another cornerback to the roster.
This is a great question that really hasn't been answered head on by anyone in the Tennessee Titans organization.
According to Ourlads, this is the Tennessee Titans current depth chart at CB:
CB1: Logan Ryan
CB2: LeShaun Sims
CB3: Adoree Jackson
CB4: Brice McCain
Then a mix of Kalan Reed, Damontre Hurst, Tye Smith, and D'Joun Smith.
I really like what that top 3 could lookhttp://www.officialchargesshop.com/shop-by-players-denzel-perryman-jersey-c-1_15.html like, especially if they let Jackson come in for spot duty early in his career allowing Ryan to follow guys in the slot while he plays the boundary as the third CB.
My issue with all this is that I expected to land two DBs in the 2017 NFL Draft. In fact, I think I may have been the only one who really wanted two corners and never thought a safety was a real option.
So I think the answer on the possible addition of a cornerback is probably a no at this point because I think they trust the top of their depth chart to be solid. I also think they trust their evaluations and coaches for guys like Reed and Hurst.
Still, I really would like to see them add another cornerback to really have a solid four-deep unit of CBs. So these are the top guys according to NFL.com:
Brandon Flowers
-A smaller CB who has struggled with Harrison Smith Kids Jersey injuries. He fits what Jon Robinson likes in CBs with over 100 pass deflections in his career as well as 21 interceptions.
Sterling Moore
-A really intriguing potential signing. He was with the New England Patriots for two years, and then joined Jon Robinson in Tampa Bay in 2015. There are some connections here.
Tramon Williams
-Had a good game against the Tennessee Titans last year and at 6'0 he would add some size to this CB group.
That is the short list for cornerbacks that I would look at the Tennessee Titans.

Former Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw is attempting a return to football.
He's listed on the roster for Ronald Darby Jersey The Spring League, which according to Pro Football Talk is conducting training camp in West Virginia in advance of a six-game season that will conclude the day before the NFL Draft. Along with Bradshaw, some notable players such as Greg Hardy and Kellen Winslow Jr. will participate in the league, while former Colts offseason/practice squad participants Alvester Alexander and Mitchel Van Dyk will as well.
Bradshaw didn't play anywhere in 2016, but he spent the previous three seasons with the Indianapolis Colts (2013-2015). While with http://www.billsjerseysale.com/shop-by-players-e-j-manuel-jersey-c-1_20.html Indy, he was terrific when on the field... but due to injuries, he had trouble staying on the field. He played in 19 games over three seasons (starting 3) and rushed 162 times for 696 yards and four touchdowns (averaging 4.3 yards per carry) and also caught 55 passes for 406 yards and nine scores, totaling 1,102 yards and 13 touchdowns in 19 games played. His best season with the Colts came in 2014, when he played in ten games and rushed for 425 yards and two scores while catching 38 passes for 300 yards and six scores. Before his time in Indy, Bradshaw spent six seasons with the New York Giants (2007-2012), where he was also very productive, putting together two 1,000-yard rushing seasons and being a part of twohttp://www.billsonlineofficial.com/shop-by-players-ronald-darby-jersey-c-1_45.html Super Bowl championships.
The problem for Bradshaw, however, has been injuries, and that has kept him off the field quite a bit. That problem really showed up with the Colts, as all three years he suffered an injury. In 2013, Bradshaw had a really good start to the year (helping the Colts to a big road win over the 49ers) but suffered a neck injury that ended his season. In 2014 he was a terrific all-around threat, but after ten games he suffered a fractured fibula. Then in 2015, the Colts brought him back mid-season and he did a solid jobRamon Humber Kids Jersey in six games, but he wound up with a broken wrist. After the 2015 season, the Colts didn't re-sign him.
The players participating in The Spring League are surely hoping that they will catch the attention of NFL teams and be able to get a job on an offseason roster to compete for a spot. While most of the guys are relative unknowns, some - like Ahmad Bradshaw - have produced at the pro level and are looking to resume a football career.

Different Sounding Vontae Davis Enters Ninth NFL Season
Intro: Turning 29 years old later this month, Vontae Davis is approaching his ninth NFL season. Listen to Davis this time of year andhttp://www.buccaneersprostore.com/cool-prices-alterraun-verner-21-jersey-replica-cheap-for-sale.html he sounds like a guy knowing just how important he is to the success of the Colts.
INDIANAPOLIS – Chuck Pagano has challenged his top returning defender.
Vontae Davis has challenged himself.
The Colts need Davis, the longest tenured defender returning in 2017, to play at the level we saw back in 2014.
That year, as the Colts marched to the AFC Championship, Davis was unquestionably one of the top corners in the NFL.
In 2014, Davis had just signed a new four-year contract with the Colts.
Now entering the final season of thathttp://www.cheapdolphinsonline.com/shop-by-players-ndamukong-suh-jersey-c-1_45.html original four-year deal, Davis' maturation through a handful of seasons in Indianapolis can be heard.
“I'm looking to have a big year myself,” Davis says. “I think I'm the leader of that (secondary) and if I'm not playing well, I don't think anybody is going to play well. I've got to play my best ball all the time. That's the approach I'm taking.
“I'm raising the standard not only for the group, but for myself.”
The Colts need peak Davis in several ways this season.
After watching seven defenders age 29 or older exit the door this offseason, Davis has gone from the rather quiet starting cornerback, to a player entrusted with more leadership responsibilities.
Davis jokes that he's a “young spirit” but his NFL experience will undoubtedly have the newcomers in the secondary looking up to him.
“I just want to make sure I'm doing all the right Shaq Mason Authentic Jersey things because those guys, they're going to be watching me all the time,” Davis says of the Colts drafting three new defensive backs. “I want to set a great example and answer questions for those guys. Be somebody they can lean on.
“Mike Adams was that guy. He was the older guy of the group. Now it's me and Darius Butler, so we have to be the guys that keep the room together and be leaders and role models.”
Since Davis arrived in Indianapolis via trade in 2012, he's lined up opposite a plethora of different cornerbacks.
The Colts drafted Quincy Wilson in the 2017 Draft, possibly adding to the number of corners playing with Davis.
But it's not about the other guy with Davis this year.
It's about the team's No. 1 cornerback, entering a contract year, with the burden of being arguably the team's most indispensable player, not named Andrew Luck.
“When you have high expectations and the organization has invested in you, there's always going to be pressure,” Davis says. “That comes with the territory. It's the business.
“Right now, I'm just taking a different approach to my game. I do things differently. Right now, I feel the best I've felt. Being motivated and having the drive, I think I can pull a lot of guys in the room. It falls on me.”

My Draft Memories: Nat Moore
What stands out to you the most from your draft-day experience?
Nat Moore: “I thought I was going http://www.newpatriotssale.com/nfl-new-england-patriots-replica-stephen-gostkowski-jersey-3-on-sale.html to be a Cowboy. I was being chaperoned and entertained by a Cowboys scout to make sure I didn't sign with the World Football League before the draft. Ironically, the one team that I didn't talk to the whole time was the team that drafted me, which was the Dolphins in the third round.”
How did you celebrate being drafted?
Moore: “I was in Gainesville at my apartment. I was still in school. Back in those days you could stay in school and come in and go through the minicamp and then you finished up in June and then you came back in late July. I don't http://www.officialbearsshops.com/shop-by-players-tom-waddle-jersey-c-2_46.html remember doing anything special, other than kicking the guy out from Dallas.”
What did you do in preparation to help your draft position as far as special workouts, etc.?
Moore: “Nothing. I mean if I could play football then I could play football. If you didn't look at the tapes and say, ‘Hmm, I think he can play,' then I don't know anything else I was going to do because I was doing that against the top competition in the SEC, the University of Miami and Florida State. I don't think I could have shown anything I didn't show already. If I went through college and proved I could play then going Brandon Thompson Authentic Jersey to all of these different camps, what's it going to change? I'm not a big proponent of that. I think that sometimes because they go and they do that, they go through testing very well at the Combine, guys move up that are not players and then in the end teams get burned by that.”
Was there something about your interviews with prospective coaches before the draft that stood out?
Moore: “No, not really. I don't even know what a Wonderlic test is. They checked out my health and talked to me about whether I'd be a wide receiver or a running back because I had been a running back and basically that was pretty much it.”
What was it like to know you were going to be coached by Don Shula?
Moore: “It was a dream come true to know that Don Shula was going to be my coach. I was a big Baltimore Colts fan prior to Coach Shula coming to Miami so I had followed his career. Plus, the Dolphins had won the previous two Super Bowls so that added to my excitement.”
What advice would you give to this year's class of draft choices?
Moore: “The first thing is as soon as you Thomas Gafford Kids Jersey can get that playbook, bury your nose in it. This is what you've worked for your whole life, and the only way you can really compete for a job is you've got to know what to do. Once you know what to do it allows you to turn loose your athletic ability. If you don't you're thinking and if you're thinking the play's over.”

Packers' Ty Montgomery still a valuable receiver even as fantasy RB
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Don't take the receiver out of Ty Montgomery when it comes to fantasy rankings.
The Green Bay Packers running http://www.officialbuccaneersshop.com/shop-by-players-alterraun-verner-jersey-c-1_5.html back, who switched positions midway through last season, still ranks relatively high among backs in ESPN's new points-per-reception fantasy rankings.
Montgomery checked in at No. 19 on a list of the top 40 running backs in terms of receptions for fantasy purposes.
Even after the position switch last season, the Packers still utilized Montgomery's receiving skills. In fact, he caught 10 passes in consecutive games -- in Week 6 against the Cowboys for 98 yards and in Week 7 against the Bears forhttp://www.officialnflfalconsshop.com/shop-by-players-tevin-coleman-jersey-c-9_105.html 66 yards -- to become just the third player in team history to record back-to-back games with 10 or more catches.
For the season, he posted almost as many receiving yards (348 on 44 catches) as he did rushing yards (457 on 77 carries). However, all three of his touchdowns were of the rushing variety.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said shortly after Day 3 of the draft, when the team selected three running backs (BYU's Jamaal Williams in the fourth round, UTEP's Aaron Jones in fifth and Utah State's Devante Mays in the seventh), that Ryan Delaire Youth Jersey Montgomery will be the starting running back.
Given that McCarthy wants his starting running back to be able to play on all three downs, there's reason to believe Montgomery's receiving totals won't drop. In fact, they might spike given that he barely played in the first four games of the season. In that first month, he carried just twice and didn't catch any passes.
It was midway through last season when ESPN switched Montgomery from receiver to running back for fantasy purposes.
ESPN's overall fantasy rankings are coming soon but for now, it's wise to keep an eye on Montgomery for his receiving skills as wellDanny Amendola Kids Jersey as his rushing.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers led the quarterbacks in the PPR rankings, while Jordy Nelson ranked fifth among receivers followed by Davante Adams (26th) and Randall Cobb (38th). Martellus Bennett ranked 11th among tight ends.

My Draft Memories: Byron Maxwell
We reminisce with some of your Lorenzo Taliaferro Kids Jersey favorite current and former Miami Dolphins about their draft day. We catch up with cornerback Byron Maxwell, selected in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks.
How did you spend your draft weekend?
Byron Maxwell: “I was chilling. To help get my mind off it, I went to go see a movie. I think it was one of those ‘Fast And Furious' movies. I can't remember which one. I got the call when I was in the movie theater. Actually, I got two calls that day, one was from Jacksonville. But the call I got that was from the Seattlehttp://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/ask-for-high-quality-calais-campbell-93-jersey-cheap.html Seahawks, they drafted me in the sixth round. I was in the movie theater. It was crazy.”
How would describe the experience of sitting through the draft waiting for your name to be called?
Maxwell: “I wasn't one of those guys that was all nerve-racked because I knew I was going to get my shot at the league and that's all I was asking for at that point in time. I didn't really start at Clemson, but for me I just wanted to get in and have a shot. If the team was going to draft me or not, I knew I'd have a shot, so I wasn't really that nervous.”
How did you celebrate getting drafted?
Maxwell: “I didn't really want to doBilly Winn Kids Jersey anything. I think my people, they put together a little get-together just off of me getting drafted that day. Really, I just relaxed and took it all in. ‘Man, I'm going to be going on the other side of the United States. I'm going to be going to Seattle.' I'd never really been out of the South, really.”
How intense were the days and weeks before the draft?
Maxwell: “Not intense for me. Just getting ready, doing these workouts. Like I said, I already knew I was going to get an opportunity to be in the NFL. It was just a matter of what club, right fit. I knew I was ready, though. But lucky I got drafted and ended up in a great place that helped mold my career.”
How did you handle those next couple of weeks after the draft?
Maxwell: “It was great because some of these guys that didn't get drafted, they didn't know where they were going because we had that lockout that year. So it was good to know that not only you know where you're going but you know I got a check coming in.”
What advice would you have for this year's prospects?
Maxwell: “Just take it one day at a time. Youhttp://www.authenticcoltsshop.com/shop-by-players-robert-mathis-jersey-c-1_35.html can look forward to things, but don't be set on one thing. Know that it's different things and you don't know for what reason they drafted you or they're drafting guys. So don't look into the draft, just look into getting an opportunity to play ball at the next level.”

Bills Today: Thurman Thomas to announce Bills 2nd round pick
A Bills Hall of Famer will be stepping up to the lectern on Friday night to announce Buffalo's second-round pick.
Here's the Bills news of note for April 27th
1 - Thurman to announce Billshttp://www.cheappatriotssale.com/shop-by-players-rob-ninkovich-jersey-c-1_52.html 2nd round pick
It won't be the first time and it probably won't be the last. On day two of the NFL draft, Bills Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas will be announcing Buffalo's second-round selection.
Fellow Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Bruce Smith and Andre Reed have all announced Bills draft choices in the past. Wall of Famer Phil Hansen has announced a Bills pick too.
Buffalo currently has the 12th pick in round two (44th overall).
Another former Bills player will also be announcing the team's third-round selection. Former safety Bryan Scott will step to the lectern to reveal Buffalo's third-round pick Friday night.
2 - Bills, Vikes face similar 5th year option decision
Based on the progress andhttp://www.dolphinsjerseyofficial.com/shop-by-players-94-mario-williams-jersey-c-1_46.html playmaking ability of 2014 first-round picks Sammy Watkinsand Teddy Bridgewater in their first couple of NFL seasons, the thought of the Bills and Vikings picking up both players' fifth-year options seemed like a no-brainer. Then both players sustained long-term injuries that either compromised or wiped out their 2016 seasons completely. It's made the decision that much more challenging for the Bills and Vikings.
Watkins has had a pair of surgeries on the foot that suffered a Jones fracture in advance of the 2016 season. He's expected to be ready for Bills training camp.
Bridgewater's situation is still very unclear as the club doesn't know for sure if the quarterback will ever be the same player again following his catastrophic knee injury last summer.
The problem likely lies in the language regarding the injury guarantee for fifth-year options. The rules of the fifth-year option state that the fifth-year salary, which for Watkins would be the equivalent of the transition tag next year, would be guaranteed for injury-related termination from the time the club exercises the option.
And that can be for any injury including the one he's currently trying to return from. Even a reoccurrence of his foot injury would be covered under the injury guarantee.
Guaranteeing a top 10 salary at the wideNate Solder Authentic Jersey receiver position would be north of $13M. It's understandable as to why that's not an easy call to make knowing Watkins missed eight games last season and wasn't 100 percent in the eight in which he did play.
Coming off his second surgery the hope is that Watkins can return to form and be the dynamic player he is in the passing game. But having to decide whether or not to invest by May 3rd is what makes such a commitment difficult.
We'll know soon enough the direction the Bills elect to take
RELATED: MOCK DRAFT WATCH 9.0
3 - Florida State anyone?
NFL.com put together a story recently about the back channels that NFL scouting departments work to get inside information on college prospects. The information they're seeking is type of person these players are knowing they can collect all the information they need about his football playing ability themselves by watching tape.
Scouts establish connections with employees on college campuses, usually connected in some way to the athletic department. Sometimes they have a history with one of the members of the coaching staff and they help each other out.
What this provides is an added measure of confidence to take a player from that particular school if they're getting what they feel is reliable information.
In putting together such preferences NFL.com found that since 2007 the Bills have drafted the most players from any one school Lavelle Hawkins Womens Jersey with a total of seven from Florida State. What's perhaps even more remarkable is that total has accumulated only over the last five draft classes.
Here are those players in chronological order for the Bills.

Top 6 from Facebook Live with G Richie Incognito
Bills G Richie Incognito recently took part in a live chat on Buffalo's Facebook page. Find out what we learned.
Bills guard Richie Incognito recently held a live chat on the team's Facebook page, and here's some of what we learned:
1. He and Eric Wood are still BFF's
Richie's close relationship with http://www.dolphinsjerseyofficial.com/shop-by-players-97-jordan-phillips-jersey-c-1_48.html Center Eric Wood is nothing new to Bills fans. You may have seen the epic hype video they collaborated on when UFC came to Buffalo earlier this month:
One of the more contentious on-screen moments came when Eric insulted Richie's flexibility.
“When you get in an argument with your best friend, you know where the jugular is, you know where the soft points are.” Richie explained. “So I went right for the jugular. I went right for the curly hair, and he made a comment, you know, I can't touch my toes, and that deeply offends me, because I'm a pretty flexible dude.”
Even though he was highly offended by Eric's comments, Richie was still able to enjoy himself at UFC event at KeyBank Center with Wood and some of their other Bills teammates on April 8th.
“We loved it,” Richie said. “To be involved in something like UFC in the city of Buffalo is really great. It's great exposure for them, it's great exposure for the city of Buffalo. It was a really cool deal that we got to be a part of.”
2. He truly values his flexibility
To prove his best friend wrong, Richiehttp://www.newpatriotssale.com/nfl-new-england-patriots-replica-malcolm-mitchell-jersey-19-for-sale.html demonstrated on Facebook that he can bend down and not only touch his toes while keeping his legs straight, but also place his entire palms flat on the turf. (watch around the 6:50 mark to see for yourself) He credits his high school football coach, who was also the school's track coach, for inspiring his passion for staying flexible.
“It's cool to be flexible. It's good for you.” Richie says. “I tell young guys in the locker room, if you want to be flexible, if you want to be more explosive, stretch before bed. Stretch when you wake up. Stretch all the time.”
3. He can eat 30-40 wings in one sitting and bench press 500 pounds
While these facts are likely unrelated, they are equally impressive. Richie recently estimated that he can eat 3-4 dozen wings in a sitting, as long as they are coated in a medium sauce. “Not too spicy,” he says. As for the bench press, RichieBrandon Thompson Youth Jersey remembers his personal 500-pound record fondly. “I did it a couple years ago, in Saint Louis, and that was my heaviest ever.”
4. He likes EDM...and anything with a good jam
Wondering what's on Richie's iTunes? “I like EDM, alternative rock… Kings of Leon is one of my favorite bands, Tiesto. If it's got a good jam, and carries a good tune I like it.” And although Richie says his offseason was “boring,” he did make it to a Blink 182 concert.
5. He would love to play defense
Richie played on both sides of the ball in high school, but ultimately decided he liked being the guy who blocks people rather than the one avoiding blocks. But ask him now, and he sounds open and interested to trying it again.
“I play offense with a defensive mentality,” Richie said. “It's a different world, obviously. There's a lot of preparation that goes into it, so it's tough to go both ways. But I'd love to do it.”
6. He considers becoming a Bill in 2015 the best moment of his career so far
Richie is still motived by the warm Tayo Fabuluje Womens Jersey welcome he received from Bills ownership and management when he arrived in Buffalo for the 2015 season.
“From that point forward, I've just been trying to repay them with hard work and effort. It's one of those things where I am just thankful every day to be part of this organization and to be back playing football.”

Lorenzo Alexander: Jerry Hughes in for double-digit sacks, not 'worrying about pass coverage'
Two seasons and 20 sacks after the Buffalo Bills traded linebacker Kelvin Sheppard to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for http://www.officialbuccaneersshop.com/shop-by-players-brandon-myers-jersey-c-1_7.html defensive end Jerry Hughes, it seemed nothing short of a highway robbery in favor of Buffalo. Under defensive coordinators Mike Pettine and Jim Schwartz, Hughes thrived as a pass rusher, often aligning wide of the tight end, where he'd utilize his ridiculous burst, speed and power to terrorize opposing offensive linemen.
But, when Rex Ryan was hired as the team's head coach, the Bills transitioned to a 3-4 defense that asked Hughes to play a variety of roles, from a five-technique interior alignment all the way to his natural nine-technique alignment while often dropping into coverage as well. Hughes made best of the situation but it seemed likehttp://www.officialnflfalconsshop.com/shop-by-players-stansly-maponga-jersey-c-9_100.html the 28-year old simply was out of position on too many occasions and his best attributes being put to waste. In his two seasons under Ryan, Hughes notched just 11 total sacks and looked out of place.
Ryan was fired shortly before the season ended and Buffalo's new head coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator will be bringing back a more traditional 4-3 defensive front, which is a more natural scheme for just about every player on the Bills' defensive line.
Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander joined the Bills Wire podcast to talk about the new defensive scheme and was emphatic in his belief that not only Hughes but second-year defensive end Shaq Lawson, the team's first-round draftThomas Davis Sr Kids Jersey pick in 2016, would both benefit greatly from the scheme change.
“I think Jerry (Hughes) and Shaq (Lawson) are more hand in the dirt type of guys that love to rush and are more, true defensive ends. That transition (to linebacker) is hard, and even though they can do it, it takes time. But that transition is hard and in the NFL, you don't have to through every look and everything each week to get a guy comfortable where he's fully ready to go out and produce,” Alexander said.
Despite having only played one season as his teammate, Alexander is well aware of what he's capable of having seen the film of his play following the trade from Indianapolis. He made it clear that in the new defense, Hughes doesn't have to worry about numerous responsibilities, nonchalantly stating that he's poised for a bounce-back year with double-digit sacks.
“I know with Jerry now playing with Chris Long Kids Jersey his hand in the dirt, he's going to have a big season. A double-digit sack season because he just doesn't have to worry about standing up and worrying about pass coverage. He can focus on what he's great at, and that's the same for Shaq as well.”

Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Faces rookie competition for pass-catching role
Sims (pectoral) will have competition for his pass-catching role from 2017 fifth-round pick Jeremy McNichols, who snared 103http://www.ravensshopsofficial.com/shop-by-players-mike-wallace-jersey-c-2_5.html receptions for 1,089 yards and 11 touchdowns in his college career, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Sims has primarily cut his NFL teeth through the air, having compiled 94 receptions across 31 games over his first three seasons. However, McNichols brings virtually the same pass-catching acumen while also offering a muchhttp://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/choose-top-quality-cheap-carson-palmer-3-jersey.html more impressive track record than Sims as a runner. Head coach Dirk Koetter emphasized that he views McNichols, who started his college career as a receiver, as a "three-down guy" and an above-average blocker in the backfield. While Sims has proven valuable to the Bucs during his tenure, he's also missed 17 games over his three campaigns with an assortment of injuries and has limitations in the ground game. A strong training camp and preseason from McNichols could thusBilly Winn Womens Jersey lessen Sims' potential usage this season, particularly if Doug Martin (suspension) resumes his role as the top running back after serving his ban over the season's first three weeks.

Bucs' Conte, Tandy welcome competition at safety
Chris Conte and Keith Tandy combined for some of the biggest plays in the Bucs' five-game win streak last season, but the offseason sawhttp://www.officialnflfalconsshop.com/shop-by-players-sean-renfree-jersey-c-9_97.html the Bucs sign J.J. Wilcox as a free agent and draft Texas A&M's Justin Evans in the second round, setting up all kinds of competition for playing time this fall.
"It's good for everyone," Conte said. "I think almost every year I've played safety there's been somebody drafted at safety. When it's a second-round pick, he's going to get on the field in some manner. We look forward to it and I hope http://www.officialpanthersstore.com/shop-by-players-scott-simonson-jersey-c-9_83.html he's a great addition to our team."
Conte and Tandy were among five Bucs players who spent Friday morning at Bing Elementary, which won the team's "Play 60" contest by logging the most exercise minutes, getting $2,500 in physical education as a reward for their hard work.
Conte had key interceptions to spark a win against Chicago and help seal a win against Kansas City, and Tandy had clinching interceptions against San Diego and New Orleans. The Bucs did not re-sign Bradley McDougald, so Wilcox essentially offsets him on the field, but Evans will be in the mix for major playing time.
Tandy said he and Conte have bonded Clay Harbor Youth Jersey in the offseason, even going to the Eric Church concert in Tampa on Thursday night, and both will embrace the challenge of going up against the newcomers this fall.
"We're always looking for competition, looking for ways to make the team better," said Tandy, who got engaged in the offseason and will be getting married next summer. "It makes everybody raise their game up. We're all going to challenge each other, then we're all going to hang out off the field."
Conte enjoyed his offseason -- he owns a home in Tampa and doesn't mind staying in the area in the offseason, saying the climate makes that easier than in his Bears days.
"It's almost like being on vacation, easy toSteve Smith Sr Authentic Jersey get away to the beach," he said. "It's a little different than Chicago, when you wanted to get the heck out of there in the winter. There's no rush to leave Tampa."

Dolphins position battles: Koa Misi versus Raekwon McMillan
Going into the offseason, the Dolphins had a clear need at linebacker. While Kiko Alonso valiantly manned the middle linebacker http://www.teamcardinalsprostore.com/shop-best-quality-cheap-chandler-jones-55-jersey.html position last year, his counterparts, Neville Hewitt, Spencer Paysinger, Jelani Jenkins, and Koa Misi failed to impress. Partly due to injuries and partly due to failure to perform, the 2016 linebacking corps needed to be addressed if the Dolphins were going to make the necessary improvements in 2017.
The reformation began during free agency when Miami signed long-time Pittsburgh linebacker Lawrence Timmons to a contract. This not only brought the Dolphins a respected performer at the position, but it also allowed them http://www.authenticcoltssale.com/shop-by-players-arthur-jones-jersey-c-1_8.html to shift the returning Kiko Alonso to the outside.
Next came the 2017 NFL draft where the Dolphins selected linebacker Raekwon McMillan with pick No. 54 in the second round. This was a clear sign that the team wasn't going to rely on the oft-injured Koa Misi to be the solution at the team's third linebacker spot.
Misi's age and injury history are working against him going into this year's training camp. Although the 30-year-old started double-digit games for Miami from 2012 to 2015, a back injury ended his season in 2015 and a neck injury ended his season in 2016. Misi ended up restructuring his contract to stay with Winston Guy Youth Jersey the team this upcoming season and hopes to be cleared for play sometime this month ahead of training camp.
McMillan offers a young alternative that was highly productive in college, albeit at a different position than what the Dolphins would likely have him play. The former Buckeye defender racked up over 100 tackles each year during his final two years in Columbus, which led the team. How he adjusts to the outside will determine whether he ascends to the starting role as much as how Misi recovers from his injury.
For McMillan, he's willing to take on any role the team asks him to, “Yes, like everyone around here is talking about, wherever coach needs me to play, I'll go out there at the linebacker position and do my job. They brought in some vets, [Lawrence] Timmons from the Steelers, Kiko [Alonso] and some of the other guys here. It's a team effort. It's not just one guy going out there and trying to make a big difference. It's us all out there playing together and putting up a team effort to stop the run.”
The Dolphins will likely give McMillan every chance possible to earn the starting role as they hope to definitively fix the team's run defenseKoa Misi Kids Jersey issues. If he can find his footing on the outside, his youth and propensity to be around the ball should earn him a spot next to Alonso and Timmons as part of a group of linebackers that are wholly different than what the team rolled out in 2016.

Where Are They Now: Kevin Faulk
In their own unique way, each http://www.authenticpackerssale.com/shop-by-players-67-don-barclay-jersey-c-1_31.html member of the 2001 New England Patriots played a role helping the team capture its first championship in franchise history following a thrilling, last-second 20-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI.
Then: Through 15 regular season games, in a reserve role behind Antowain Smith, Kevin finished second on the team with 169 http://www.authenticpatriotsstore.com/shop-by-players-andre-branch-jersey-c-1_3.html rushing yards and added 30 receptions for 189 yards and two touchdowns.
Now: In August, Kevin became the 25th player (and only third running back) to be inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame following a career in which he recorded 31 touchdowns (16 rushing, 15 receiving) and a team-best 12,349 all-purpose yards. Kevin is still on the football field, serving as an offensive coordinator at his alma Ryan Mundy Youth Jersey mater, Carencro High School in Lafayette, Louisiana. He won a state championship as a player at the school in 1992 and is hoping to win another state title as a coach.

Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Will share TE targets with first-rounder
Brate, who saw a career-high 81 targets in 2016 as the unquestioned No. 1 tight end for the majority of the season, projects tohttp://www.cheappatriotssale.com/shop-by-players-jordan-richards-jersey-c-1_33.html be involved in plenty of two-tight end sets with heralded No. 1 pick O.J. Howard in the coming season, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. "We were fortunate enough to add speed on the outside with DeSean Jackson to pair up with Mike [Evans] and now we've got two tight ends to pair side by side in [Cameron Brate] and O.J.," said head coach Dirk Koetter.
While the Harvard product exceeded http://www.dolphinsjerseyofficial.com/shop-by-players-83-mark-clayton-jersey-c-1_38.html everyone's expectations with a 57-catch, eight-touchdown season, blocking wasn't exactly his strong suit, which played a part in the Bucs running game being ranked near the bottom of the league in most major categories in 2016. Howard brings a more complete skill set that includes freakish downfield speed for a player of his size, along with the pedigree of a No. 1 pick. However, it's notable that Brate already has experience carving out a niche alongside an athletic tight end with superior measurables in the form of the mercurial and since-departed Austin Seferian-Jenkins. In fact, the defensive attention that Howard is likely to command in the middle of the field could make life much easierShea Mcclellin Jersey for Brate by affording him plenty of one-on-one matchups. The sure hands, dependable route running and overall toughness that Brate displayed last season are not likely to be forsaken by Koetter regardless of Howard's presence, and as per Scott Smith of the team's official site, the Bucs head coach went out of his way to reassure his incumbent tight end of that personally following Tampa's first-round selection Thursday.

Le 26 mars 1987, Nike révélait la première version de sa célèbre basket montée sur une bulle d'air. Il y aura un avant et un après ce lancement, qui inaugurait, il y a trente ans, le règne de la culture streetwear.
Dans les années 1980, la sneaker que tout le monde s'arrache possède bien la technologie «Air Sole» c'est-à-dire la petite capsule enhttp://www.rueduchaussures.com plastique remplie de gaz inerte insérée dans la semelle et mise au point par Frank Rudy, un ingénieur de la Nasa. Mais ce n'est pas une Air Max. Créée en 1982, celle que la jeunesse réclame s'appelle Air Force 1 et est destinée à la pratique du basket-ball alors en plein essor, popularisé par le jeune prodige des parquets, Michael Jordan. Seulement, cela ne suffit pas aux deux fondateurs de Nike, Phil Knight, coureur de demi-fond pendant ses études, et Bill Bowerman, son ancien entraîneur, qui souhaitent revenir à leurs origines: le running. Pour ajuster le tir, Tinker Hatfield, «architecte des espaces» de l'entreprise, sera appelé à la rescousse en 1985, se voyant confier la lourde tâche d'imaginer une chaussure pour la course capable de s'imposer comme «la» référence du genre. Au cours d'une visite à Paris, l'Américain de l'Oregon que les sneakerheads (la communauté de collectionneurs) appellent «le Boss», a l'idée en passant devant le Centre Pompidou de rendre visible le coussin d'air contenu dans la semelle. Il va réinventer la chaussure de sport mais pas seulement…
«Nous avions le sentiment de marcher sur un nuage»
«Tous les adolescents en étaient dingues. Cette petite bulle apparente était géniale. Elle lui donnait un côté magique. Nous avions le sentiment de marcher sur un nuage», raconte Pascal Monfort, fondateur du cabinet de conseil REC et inconditionnel de la première heure. «En conjuguant la performance et la technologie des composants à une esthétique puissante, Nike a fait plus que révolutionner la basket, analyse Florence Müller, conservatrice de la mode et du textile du Denver Art Museum, auteur de Baskets. Une histoire de chaussures de sport, de ville, paru en 1997. À l'époque, on voyait tout à travers le prisme du design. C'était une running shoe certes, mais aussi un très bel objet.» Dans les années 1990, les designers, de Philippe Starck à Andrée Putman, sont des stars ; Steve Jobshttp://www.liquidationchaussures.com fait de l'ordinateur de M. Tout-le-Monde un produit de lifestyle. Sur les podiums, les minimalistes Helmut Lang ou Calvin Klein, et leurs vestiaires taillés aux cordeaux, prennent le pouvoir. Un peu plus tard, un concept store d'un nouveau genre s'installe dans la capitale française. «En 1997, pour le lancement de l'Air Max 97 (la plus vendue en France à ce jour), la boutique Colette, qui venait d'ouvrir, l'a mis à l'honneur dans sa vitrine avec un imposant dispositif. Pour le vernissage, tout ce que Paris comptait de branchés était présent, tous chaussés d'Air Max», rappelle Mme Müller.
En réinterprétant son modèle fétiche (une quinzaine de variantes de 1987 à 2006), la marque à la virgule réussit le tour de force de séduire des «tribus» très éloignées. Il y en a pour tous les goûts, des sportifs aux fans de techno, des banlieusards aux modeux. «En Italie, l'Air Max 97 connut aussi un énorme succès, indique le créateur Riccardo Tisci, qui en signe une nouvelle version pour l'anniversaire. Les gamins en périphérie des grandes villes italiennes, les “bad boys” en survêtement les portaient dans les night-clubs pour faire les beaux. J'étais de ceux-là. Je me souviens avoir patiemment économisé le peu d'argent de poche que j'avais pour m'en acheter une paire. Pour résumer, en Italie à la fin des nineties, si tu n'avais pas d'Air Max, tu n'étais pas cool. Basta.» Questionnez les trentenaires et quadragénaires à la tête des maisons de luxe: beaucoup témoignent de la même expérience. Kim Jones (directeur artistique de l'homme Louis Vuitton), Phoebe Philo (chez Céline) ou encoreNike Air Max Pas Cher Pour Femme  Alexander Wang, tous ont vécu en pleine crise de puberté le sacre de Nike et de la (contre-)culture américaine.
Même chose pour les garçons du collectif Études Studio, label à suivre de mode masculine: «Quand on a été ado durant cette décennie, on a forcément grandi avec la démocratisation du sport et l'omniprésence des États-Unis, affirme Jérémie Egry. On dévorait tout ce qui venait de là-bas, les magazines, la musique, les films et les séries américaines.» Ceux qui ont la chance d'y aller en voyage rapportent le dernier modèle pas encore disponible en France. «À cet âge, on fait comme sa bande de copains sans vraiment se poser de questions. Avec le recul, notre génération a établi un nouveau dresscode inspiré du modèle américain mais qui correspondait à la vie d'un jeune dans une ville moyenne de province», poursuit-il. Dans l'Hexagone, les radios passent en boucle les albums de NTM et d'IAM ; à la télévision, Will Smith joue le prince de Bel-Air. Le hip-hop bat son plein, entre rébellion et coolitude.
Grandir dans les années 1990
«L'adolescence est une période fondamentale pour tout créatif. L'ère de tous les possibles entre la passivité de l'enfance et les responsabilités de l'âge adulte. Là où tout se passe, où chacun forge ses goûts, insiste Pascal Monfort. Or, la plupart des grandes marques sont actuellement dirigées par ces stylistes élevés dans les années 1990.» Forts de leurs souvenirs de teenagers, ils détournent aujourd'hui le lexique du luxe et du sport pour créer une silhouette néocool devenue la norme sur les podiums comme dans la rue. «Pour moi, mélanger couture et sportswear est naturel car ces codes font partie de mon histoire et de ma façon de vivre. Plus jeune, je pratiquais pas mal de sports, surtout collectifs, du basket-ball, du volley, lâche Riccardo Tisci. Cette esthétique de la rue me paraît évidente, je ne m'assois pas derrière mon bureau en me disant: “Je vais faire un sweat-shirt à capuche ou une paire de sneakers dans ma prochaine collection.”» Ils sont nombreux, de nos jours, à effacer les frontières entre vestiaire formel et streetwear - à l'instar de la collaboration de Louis Vuitton et du label de skate Supreme, et, plus largement, de l'omniprésence des baskets dans toutes les griffes institutionnelles.
«L'Air Max n'est pas la première chaussure à sortir de la pure pratique du sport, mais elle représente le sommet de ce mouvement», précise Nike Air Max Pas Cher Homme  Florence Müller. Et elle symbolise l'incroyable mutation de la petite société de l'Oregon en un mastodonte de la culture populaire, pesant désormais autour de 8 milliards de dollars. «De la même manière que tout le monde a déjà fumé une cigarette dans sa vie, tout le monde a déjà au moins une fois porté des Nike, compare Riccardo Tisci. À l'origine de cette basket, il ne s'agissait pas de concept marketing. Il y a une forme d'honnêteté dans l'Air Max qui parle à la jeunesse d'aujourd'hui. Cette génération qui, plus que les précédentes, aspire à une authenticité.»

Bei der Aufholjagd auf Nike sieht Adidas endlich wieder Licht
Lange sah es so aus, als sei Adidas von Nike abgehängt worden. Doch nun macht Adidas gegenüber dem ewigen Konkurrenten Boden gut. Das http://www.sportschuheonlineshop.com hat auch etwas mit dem Rapper Kanye West zu tun.
Wenn die Unternehmenshistoriker eines Tages auf das Unternehmen Adidas unter der 15jährigen Ägide Herbert Hainers zurückblicken, dürften sie dabei einen Hindernislauf vor dem inneren Auge haben. Zunächst waren da ein starker Start und eine dynamische erste Rennhälfte, dann der Patzer am Wassergraben mit nachfolgender Schwächephase, der der Konkurrenz neue Chancen eröffnete. Am Ende folgte noch ein unerwartet fulminanter Schlusssprint, der das Schlimmste verhinderte.
Adidas drohte zwischenzeitlich in der Tat, die Gunst der Investoren zu verlieren – doch spätestens seit Anfang 2015 ist der Glaube an die Kraft der Franken wieder da. Dass die Aktie sich seit Januar 2016 im Wert verdoppelt hat, lag aber auch am frischen Wind in der Führungsetage. Der Ex-Henkel-Chef Kasper Rorsted wurde mit Vorschusslorbeeren schon überhäuft, bevor er im vergangenen Oktober die Position als Vorstandsvorsitzender übernahm. Er ist als Erneuerer bekannt, als einer, der den Laden auf Vordermann bringen kann.
Bei Adidas ist das nötig, nachdem unter Vorgänger Hainer trotz vielfältiger Bemühungen doch einiges liegen geblieben war. Das gilt für die über Jahre schwächelnde Marge ebenso wie für den laxen Umgang mit den Vertriebskanälen. Zudem belastet eine mal kostspielige, mal inkonsequente Akquisitionspolitik, in deren Rahmen Töchter wie Reebok oder das von der Ertragsperle zum Sanierungsfall mutierte Salomon-Überbleibsel Taylor Made mehr oder minder unambitioniert durchgefüttert wurden.
Die Probleme sind adressiert, nach der Performance der vergangenen Monate stellt sich allerdings für viele die Frage: Wie viel geht da noch?
Viele Schuhe kann Adidas nur mit Rabatten verkaufen
Klar ist: Nike hat nach wie vor in vielerlei Hinsicht die Nase vorn. Der US-Konzern schafft es, jeden zweiten Schuh zum vollen Preis zu verkaufen, bei Adidas werden 60 Prozent der Schuhe unter Listenpreis abgegeben, viele davon beim Discounter geradezu verramscht. In einer Branche, in der mit spitzem Bleistift gerechnet wird, sind das Welten. Zudem hat es Nike über seine Markenpolitik geschafft, begehrlicher und cooler zu wirken als der Weltkonzern aus dem mittelfränkischen Herzogenaurach.
Damit soll unter Rorsted nun Schluss sein. Die gute Nachricht für ihn ist, dass trotz der graduellen Verbesserungen in den vergangenen 18 Monaten durchaus noch Luft nach oben ist. Die Marge von Adidas liegt bei rund acht Prozent, Nikehttp://www.sportschuherabatt.com weist mehr als 13 Prozent aus. Rorsted hat bei Henkel bewiesen, dass er Unternehmen profitabel aufstellen kann. Er ist erst seit einigen Monaten im Amt, de facto konnte er noch nicht viel bewegen. Ihm vertrauen heißt auch, an eine weitere Verbesserung zu glauben.
Die Herzogenauracher hatten sich allerdings schon vor der Ankunft des neuen Heilsbringers an den eigenen Haaren zumindest ein Stück weit aus dem Sumpf gezogen. Mit der 2015 ins Leben gerufenen Strategie „Creating the New“ sollen die wesentlichen Kennzahlen verbessert und die drei Streifen optimal am Markt platziert werden. Erste Erfolge sind nicht nur an der Börse sichtbar, auch Umsatz und Gewinn stiegen. Der Optimismus im Unternehmen ist groß, Anfang März wurden die Gewinnziele nach oben geschraubt.
Die Kooperation mit Kanye West zahlt sich aus
Dass das Unternehmen die Ausgaben für Marketing und Werbung hochgefahren hat, scheint also zu fruchten. Denn für Sportartikelhersteller, deren Produkte oft von austauschbarer Qualität sind, gibt es im Grunde genommen nur zwei Säulen, die Umsatzerfolg versprechen:
der Coolness-Faktor
das Leistungsversprechen.
Den Coolness-Faktor hat Adidas mittlerweile weit besser im Griff als früher. Die Kooperation mit dem Rapper Kanye West und die NMD Serie haben den Streifen auf dem enorm schwierigen US-Markt einen echten Imageschub verschafft – und von den US-Trends geht eine Strahlkraft auf die Jugendkultur in den meisten anderen Ländern aus.
Das Leistungsversprechen erkaufen sich Adidas wie auch Nike mit den hohen Kosten, die Jahr für Jahr für das Sportsponsoring anfallen. Wenn dieNike Air Max Günstig Idole auf der Laufbahn, im Stadion oder auf dem Center Court mit den drei Streifen auflaufen, dann dürfte die Ausrüstung der persönlichen Leistung kaum abträglich sein und dienen auch dem Hobbykicker aus dem Stadtpark als Kaufargument.
Mit teurem Sponsoring werden Konkurrenten auf Distanz gehalten
Dabei spielt es keine Rolle, dass 90 Prozent der verkauften Turnschuhe nicht oder nicht ausschließlich beim Sport getragen werden. Mit der neuen Boost-Technologie hat Adidas zudem erstmals die realistische Chance, die Erfolge von Nike mit der Air und der Free-Technologie nachzuzeichnen. Aktuell wächst Adidas in den USA schneller als der Konkurrent aus Atlanta.
Die beiden großen Namen profitieren dabei doppelt. Denn das teure Sportsponsoring dient auch dem Aufrechterhalten einer Marktbarriere. Es ist kein Wunder, dass es Dritten so schwer fällt, in der Breite Fuß zu fassen. Marken wie Fila oder Le Coq Sportif mussten die Erfahrung machen, dass es auf Dauer zu teuer ist, das Leistungsversprechen immer wieder neu zu untermauern.
Ähnlich geht es Under Armour, dessen Glanz trotz erstklassiger Reputation und unbestreitbar hohem Coolness-Faktor vor dem Hintergrund enttäuschender Unternehmenszahlen unlängst erste Kratzer abbekommen hat. Andere Wettbewerber wie Asics oder Umbro bleiben auf einzelne Sportarten oder Regionen begrenzt und dürften daher die kritische Größe nicht überschreiten.
Speedfactory für schnelle Lieferung
Sich auf den erzielten Erfolgen auszuruhen, ist allerdings für Nike oder Adidas ebenso unheilvoll wie für Sportler. Vielmehr gilt es, Trends zu setzen und am Ball zu bleiben, sei es durch Imageträger, sei es durch neue Technologien.
Derzeit experimentiert Adidas mit einer so genannten Speedfactory im beschaulichen Ansbach, in der pro Jahr vollautomatisch etwa eine Millionen Paar Schuhe hergestellt werden. Die Idee dahinter ist es, die Lieferketten zu beschleunigen, etwa um Modelle, die überraschend gut laufen, binnen weniger Tage in allen Geschäften vorrätig zu haben und damit aktuelle Trends schneller bedienen zu können. Schließlich frustriert waschechte Sneakerfans nichts so sehr wie die Aussicht, vom Trend überholt zu werden, während das Objekt der Begierde per Containerschiff von Vietnam nach Hamburg geschippert wird.
Ein Garant für Erfolg ist all das nicht. Zwar hat Nike Air Max Thea Billig es Ex-Chef Hainer nach langer Durststrecke letztendlich noch geschafft, seinem Nachfolger den Weg zu ebnen. Das große Vertrauen in Rorsted kann indes durch eine Schwächephase schnell erschüttert werden, noch dazu sind vor allem die margenstarken Produkte sehr auf modische Trends und intakte konjunkturelle Rahmenbedingungen angewiesen. Aber immerhin hat Adidas die Voraussetzungen geschaffen, auch langfristig mit Nike in der gleichen Gewichtsklasse zu boxen.

Kiko Alonso has it made in the shade in Miami
The Dolphins' casa is Kiko Alonso's casa.
The linebacker of Cuban-Colombian heritage answers affectionately in Spanish to a question on what he likes about the city of Miami and the team, saying he feels completely at home with the large contingent of Latino fans and his teammates:
"Me siento en casa, con todos los fanáticos Latinos y con todos mis compañeros en el equipo."
His comfort level with his teammates and the http://www.authenticdolphinsjerseys.com/shop-by-players-jelani-jenkins-jersey-c-1_25.html city was a key part of signing a four-year, $28.9 million contract with the Miami Dolphins.
"Being able to stay in Miami was a dream come true for me," said Alonso, 26.
After injury-plagued stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Buffalo Bills, Alonso had a good feeling about Miami as soon as he was traded there last season.
Though he had never lived in the city, he had family members there. His father, Carlos, grew up in nearby Puerto Rico.
"The second I got the call, I was excited," said Alonso, who went on to record two interceptions and 115 combined tackles in 15 games while helping the Dolphins reach the postseason for the first time in eight years.
"It's not easy to make the playoffs, especially starting off 1-4," Alonso said. "A lot of teams could have mailed it in, but we dug deep and it was definitely a great achievement."
On the field and off, Alonso has embraced Miami's culture. While some players might not be pleased about extra media responsibilities, Alonso has been only too happy to practice his conversation skills with local Spanish-language reporters. His parents prioritized keeping all three of their sons bilingual.
"On car rides, or in the house, they'd say, 'OK, we're only speaking Spanish,' " Alonso recalled. "Otherwise, I don't think I would be able to speak it like I do today. Obviously, the more I speak it, the better I get."
Arun Sharma, vice dean and professor of marketinghttp://www.authenticpackerssale.com/shop-by-players-92-reggie-white-jersey-c-1_43.html at the University of Miami School of Business Administration, sees Alonso's language skills as an asset for him.
"South Florida is very sports oriented and the Spanish-speaking fans like athletes who can speak in Spanish," Sharma said. "Speaking English and Spanish allows athletes to reach twice the population in Miami compared to when athletes are monolingual."
Alonso will get the chance to practice even more Spanish in an offseason project especially important to him -- a camp in late April he is coordinating with the Puerto Rico American Football Academy.
"Puerto Rico has historically had a Pee-Wee and high school league," said Frank Lopez, PRAFA vice president, noting most people aren't aware of the island's talent in American football. "We're trying to let people know and bring more opportunities to these kids. Our main goal is to be able to help kids get scholarships and opportunities in the United States through the sport of football."
Over 300 participants ranging from age 8 to 16 are already registered for Alonso's camp, as well as a number of coaches.
"We're going to have all the leagueEarl Mitchell Womens Jersey coaches participate, so that they learn the drills," Lopez said.
"To be able to do that makes me very happy," Alonso said, gratified that nine of his Dolphins teammates agreed to participate as soon as he asked for their assistance with the camp.
"I didn't have to say anything other than, 'Hey, I'm having a camp in Puerto Rico' and they said, 'Say no more.' "
Alonso is taking more than his Spanish skills and famous NFL friends to the event.
"We're bringing a lot of equipment that is not available [in Puerto Rico] and we're going to be donating it to the different clubs in Puerto Rico so they can start improving their training techniques and we can develop better athletes," Lopez said, mentioning specifically the island is getting its first NFL five-man tackling sled.
"In the long run, we want to set up a football training facility," Alonso said.
Other future plans include working out a visit to Cuba with his parents, trying to convince more of his teammates to embrace Puerto Rican reggaeton music and getting the Dolphins further into the playoffs. One possibility Alonso's not concerned about is a likely position switch on the field this upcoming season.
"Linebacker, inside or out, at the end of the day, it's the same thing," Alonso said. "It's run around and hit people. They put me outside, it's fine."
It's easier to accept changes when one feels positive about a situation.
"There is high correlation between quality of life and happiness of workers," Sharma said.
The contentment Alonso now feels comes partly because he finally has had a chance to show his true talent in Miami.
"The past two years I was dealing with some Demar Dotson Womens Jersey injuries," Alonso said. "It felt good to go out there and play almost every game and to feel like my body was there 100 percent."
Giving back in Puerto Rico, enjoying life in Miami -- a contract extension with the Dolphins is, as Alonso puts it, "A perfect fit."

Marathon: Nike et Kipchoge, pour casser la barre des 2 heures
Un défi technologique mais aussi une grosse opération marketing: le Kényan Eliud Kipchoge tente samedi sur l'autodrome de Monza de briser lahttp://www.liquidationchaussures.com barrière mythique des deux heures sur le marathon (42,195 km), un projet lancé par Nike qui entend monnayer sa réussite éventuelle sur le florissant marché du running.
Le choix de Monza n'est pas anodin tant l'aérodynamique est le dénominateur commun à la Formule 1 et à cette tentative. L'équipementier américain a mis le paquet pour gagner son pari en sélectionnant trois coureurs de très haut niveau qui s'élanceront à partir de 5h45 du matin.
Kipchoge, champion olympique du marathon à Rio, sera accompagné par l?Éthiopien Lelisa Desisa, vice-champion du monde 2013, et par l?Érythréen Zernesay Tadese, 3e du 10.000 m des JO-2004 et 2e des Mondiaux-2009 sur la même distance, trois ambassadeurs transformés en +Gagarine+ du bitume.
Un premier test a eu lieu le 7 mars à Monza sur un semi-marathon et Kipchoge s'est acquitté de la tâche en 59 minutes 17 secondes, chrono de bon augure. Le record du monde, établi par le Kényan Dennis Kimetto le 28 septembre 2014 àhttp://www.liquidationchaussures.com Berlin, est actuellement de 2 heures 02 minutes 57 secondes.
Les trois +cobayes+ seront surtout aidés par des innovations technologiques, indispensables pour mener à bien l'expérience. Pour cette opération, Nike a ainsi réuni des experts en biomécanique, design, ingénierie, développement des matériaux et nutrition.
Tout commence par la chaussure, la "Zoom Elite", dessinée pour pénétrer l'air. Une plaque en carbone glissée dans la semelle fait économiser de l'énergie à l'athlète et, de plus, en restitue dans la phase de propulsion.
- Arrières-pensées commerciales -
Le maillot et le short caleçon ont été conçus également avec le souci majeur de l'écoulement de l'air. Le marathonien bionique est ainsi né, équipé en outre de deux plaques sur les mollets qui fonctionnent comme des ailerons.
Autres avantages à la disposition des coureurs: un camion leur servira d'aspiration et des lièvres frais seront lancés en cours de tentative. L'aspect humain n'a pas été oublié avec des physiologistes et psychologues.
Par ailleurs, le jour et le créneau horaire du départ ont été décidés en fonction des prévisions météo (température et humidité de l'air, forceNike Air Max Tavas Pas Cher du vent). Autant de paramètres qui ne permettront pas à la Fédération internationale (IAAF) d'homologuer un possible record.
Si Kipchoge évoque son souci de "chasser la notion de limites pour l'homme", le but de Nike, leader mondial de la chaussure de sport mais distancé, notamment par le Japonais Asics, sur le créneau du running, n'est pas dénué d'arrières-pensées commerciales.
L'engouement pour les courses sur route est en effet devenu un véritable phénomène de société. Les dizaines de millions de pratiquants et d'adeptes sont autant de consommateurs de chaussures et de textiles que la marque à la virgule espère atteindre à travers ce projet.
"La barrière des deux heures pour le marathon est l'une des rares qui, si elle est franchie, peut transformer ce sport. La quantité de données et d'informations que nous avons pu recueillir et l'expérience acquise serviront de fondement pendant des années à des pôles d'innovation autour desquels nous pourrons axer nosNike Air Max Pas Cher explorations et inventions, ce qui au final permettra de proposer de meilleurs produits et services aux sportifs de tous niveaux", n'hésite pas à déclarer Sandy Bodecker, vice-président de Nike chargé des projets spéciaux.

Gratulation: Golden Retriever Nike ist jetzt ein echter Menschen-Suchhund
Golden Retriever Nike ist nicht nur ein besonders hüscher Kerl, er ist nunhttp://www.sportschuherabatt.com auch ein echter Menschen-Suchhund.
Er hat Charme, er hat Temperament, er ist intelligent und natürlich ist er auch einfach nur süß. Kein Wunder, dass am Mittwoch ein Vierjähriger das Landratsamt Straubing-Bogen in seinen Bann zog und der umschwärmte Star war. Die Rede ist von Nike, einem Golden-Retriever, seit zwei Jahren der Patenhund von Josef Laumer, Landrat des Landkreises Straubing-Bogen.
Vor kurzem hat Nike – als erster Hund in Niederbayern – die Menschen-Suchhunde-Prüfung K9-rot abgelegt und bestanden und wurde aus diesem Anlass von Josef Laumer mit seiner Besitzerin, Frau Dr. Leila Badry, zum Besuch ins Landratsamt in Straubing eingeladen. Und der Stolz war dem Paten am Mittwoch auch anzumerken. „Michhttp://www.topmarkenschuhe.com freut es wirklich, dass Nike so erfolgreich ist. Mag natürlich sein, dass das auch am Paten liegt“, meinte der Landrat mit einem Lachen. Und fügte hinzu: „Aber ernsthaft: Ich bin gerne bereit, mich einzubringen, wenn man sieht, wie viele Stunden ehrenamtlich verwendet werden, um Mensch und Tier etwas Gutes zu tun.“
Die Patenschaft entstand auch deshalb, weil sich Dr. Leila Badry vor zwei Jahren an den Landrat wandte, mit der Bitte, bei der Suche nach geeigneten Trainingsstätten für das Suchhundezentrum zu helfen. Mit dem Veit-Höser-Gymnasium wurde auch eine Liegenschaft des Landkreises gefunden. „Das passt perfekt“, so Dr. Leila Badry. „Der jetzige Direktor dort, Herr Dietl, war früher mein Lehrer.“
Bisher war Nike als Tier-Suchhund eingesetzt. „ErNike Air Max Damen Sale hat dabei sehr viel gelernt. Bei seinen Tiersuch-Einsätzen hat er auch bereits einige Tiere gefunden“, erzählt Dr. Badry. Da war nun der nächste Schritt die logische Folge. Bei der K9-rot-Prüfung als Menschen-Suchhund muss binnen 45 Minuten Suchzeit auf einem 1 Kilometer langen Trail der Erfolg sich einstellen. Nur zwei Prüfer in Niederbayern dürfen diese abnehmen und selbst der Prüfer weiß im Vorfeld die Fährte nicht. Nike bewältigte die Aufgabe in nur 13 Minuten. „Er kann sogar Menschen in einem Auto weiterverfolgen, wenn dort die Lüftung eingeschaltet ist“, so Dr. Badry über ihren Schützling. „Es ist unglaublich, was diese Hunde leisten“, konnte auch Josef Laumer eine Begebenheit aus seiner Zeit als Kripo-Beamter erzählen. „Wir hatten einmal einen Fall, wo ein Vermisster Tage später, nachdem es auch noch geschneit hatte, von einem Suchhund aufgespürt wurde.“
Besonders geeignete Rassen oder Altersgruppen gibt es eigentlich nicht. „Im Prinzip kann das jeder Hund lernen“, sagt Dr. Badry. „Natürlich sind Rassen mit einem gewissen Jagdtrieb dafür prädestinierter und je früher man beginnt, umso leichter lernen sie. NikeNike Air Max Command Damen zum Beispiel hat mit vier Monaten angefangen.“ Zumeist sind es Angehörige, die die K9-Pro des Suchhundezentrums anfordern. „Es wäre natürlich günstig, wenn wir auch bei der Polizei Fuß fassen könnten“, hofft Dr. Badry.

SideTrack: Rob Gronkowski, John Cena, Bill Belichick and more...
GRONKWOODS: “Crashlete” Rob Gronkowski washttp://www.newpatriotssale.com/nfl-new-england-patriots-cheap-rob-ninkovich-jersey-50-on-sale.html back at his go-to rumpus room, Foxwoods Resort Casino. The New England Patriots tight end played blackjack, downed a T-bone at David Burke Prime, and sipped on an espresso with his crew. Maybe it was the steak talking, but Gronk decided to do a little on-site shopping (Mother's Day is Sunday, after all). He picked up some socks and sandals at Bass (PLEASE tell us you won't wear them together) and a Keurig from The Kitchen Collection. We want in on that hot date.
WE C YOU: As the Celtics took on the Wizards http://www.authenticcoltssale.com/shop-by-players-arthur-jones-jersey-c-1_8.html last night, familiar faces were spotted in the TD Garden crowd. The Patriots came in a pack: Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, LeGarrette Blount, Patrick Chung, Julian Edelman, Dion Lewis, James White, Stephon Gilmore, Duron Harmon, Shaq Mason, Eric Rowe and Vince Valentine were all there. Pablo Sandoval was also at the game as the lone Red Sox representative, while actor Kevin Chapman and comic Lenny Clarke were there on behalf of the thespians.
HALF A BUBBLE OFF PLUM: Fashion doyenne Plum Sykes strutted down Newbury Street yesterday. The British-born journalist and New YorkCoby Fleener Womens Jersey socialite, who made her mark in the '90s as a contributing editor at Vogue, appeared at Burberry's Back Bay store to celebrate the launch of her latest book, “Party Girls Die in Pearls.” Previously, this boss lady wrote “The Debutante Divorcee” and “Bergdorf Blondes.” The alliteration game is strong with that one.
LET'S GET GRIT: WWE star and West Newbury native John Cena will be back on your TV screen this summer, as he hosts the second season of “American Grit.” This time around, the Fox show will feature a local contestant: Hannah Butera, a 23-year-old housewife from Newburyport. Butera will join 16 other competitors, Cena and a groupT.Y. Hilton Jersey of mentors called “The Cadre” in Hampton Island, Ga., at Camp Grit. The contestants will take on military-style challenges to get their grit back — oh, and potentially win a quarter of a million dollars. It all kicks off June 11.

Colts' Mewhort, Langford, Anderson eager to move past injuries
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Andrew Luck'shttp://www.authenticcoltsshop.com/shop-by-players-henry-anderson-jersey-c-1_18.html surgically-repaired right shoulder dominated the discussion Monday as the Indianapolis Colts opened their offseason program.
And rightly so. The present and future of the franchise hinges on the NFL's $140 million QB returning to form sooner rather than later.
But overshadowed by Luck's health – he offered no timeline for a return to the practice field – was the status of three other prominent Colts on the mend from injuries that essentially wrecked their 2016.
That would be guard Jack Mewhort and defensivehttp://www.authenticdolphinsjerseys.com/shop-by-players-nat-moore-jersey-c-1_43.html linemen Kendall Langford and Henry Anderson.
The fitness of each is critical if Luck's offensive line is to take another much-needed step and the defense is to shed its ineffective ways. Mewhort helps solidify the interior of the line at left guard while Langford and Anderson, at full strength and with the addition of nose tackle Johnathan Hankins, potentially gives coordinator Ted Monachino a formidable front.
A look at each:
Jack Mewhort
2016: It was an uphill battle from the outset for the 2014 second-round draft pick. Mewhort sprained his right knee in the third preseason game against Philadelphia, but started the season-opener against Detroit. He suffered a triceps injury Oct. 16 against Houston, missed three games, returned, then spent the final three weeks on injured reserve after injuring his left knee against the Texans.
Mewhort offered a quick response when asked to grade his third NFL season: “Yeah, I'd give it an ‘I' for ‘Incomplete.'''
“It was one of those things where freak things kept hitting me,'' he said. “It was one thing after another. That's how football is. That's what you sign up for when you play this game. I started playing football in fourth grade. (Injuries) come with it.
“It's my job as a professional, rehabbing and move past that and not let those things hijack me.''
Update: Mewhort insisted he's good to go.
“Positive, good energy and physically feel the best I've felt,'' he said.
Looking ahead: Flanked by left tackle Anthony Castonzo and center Ryan Kelly, Mewhort offers returning continuity. Still to be determined is how the right side of the line shakes out. The Colts might open camp with Joe Haeg at right guard and Le'Raven Clark at right tackle.
Continuity has been lacking since Luck's arrival in '12. He has played behind 35 different starting combinations in his 70 regular-season starts.
“Continuity is a big thing on the offensive line; continuity and then consistency with the guys that you have in there,'' Mewhort said. “Once you establish those two things, I believe you have a chance to have a really good offensive line.
“I believe we have the talent in that room.''
Kendall Langford
2016: Like with Mewhort, Langford's dance with injuries a year ago began during training camp. He underwent surgery in August to repair a “chondral defect'' in his right knee. Langford returned and started the first seven gamesReggie White Youth Jersey to extend his streak of consecutive games to 135 – at the time the longest active streak among defensive linemen – but was a shadow of himself. The team announced Oct. 28 it was “shutting him down'' for an indefinite time to allow for additional rehab, but then placed him on IR Nov. 19.
“It sucked,'' Langford said. “Even when I was playing and I wasn't myself, that sucked. To see my brothers out there fighting and I couldn't do nothing about it but sit on the sideline and try to make suggestions and things like that, that really sucked.
“I'm definitely looking forward to getting out there this year and having some fun.''
Update: Langford insisted he's “progressing.''
“One guarantee I can say is I'll be ready come season, training camp, all those good things,'' he said. “So I'm moving in the right direction right now on my rehab and taking it one day at a time.''
Looking ahead: At first glance, the defensive line appears robust with Langford at end, Hankins at nose and Anderson at tackle. The depth includes Hassan Ridgeway, David Parry, T.Y. McGill, Al Woods and Margus Hunt.
“We will be better this year than we were last year,'' Langford said of a defense that a year ago ranked No. 30 in yards allowed and No. 22 in points. “I just feel like there's no other choice. We will be better than we were last year, I can guarantee that.''
Henry Anderson
2016: Last year was supposed to be the next major step as Anderson recovered from a torn right ACL sustained midway through what was a promising rookie season in '15. But while he was regaining confidence in the knee, he dealt with minor dings to the same knee while also an injury to his left knee.
It's easy to forget he started 14 games when Andre Branch Jersey you consider he managed only 15 tackles.
“Last year was obviously very frustrating and just nagging injuries that I have to learn how to play through those a little bit better,'' he said. “I am over a year removed from my ACL, which is obviously good. I have a lot more confidence in that knee so I am definitely very excited to be back healthy again and playing.''
Update: Anderson, knock on wood, should be good to go.
“I feel good and hopefully all the injuries are kind of in the past now and I can kind of be injury-free for as long as possible,'' he said.
Looking ahead: As mentioned, Langford, Hankins and Anderson represent as solid a front-three as the Colts have had since adopting Chuck Pagano's 3-4 scheme in 2012.

Source: Stem cell procedure part of Mike Pouncey's normal rehab
Miami Dolphins center Mikehttp://www.officialbengalsshop.com/shop-by-players-terrance-mitchell-jersey-c-2_119.html Pouncey had a stem cell procedure on his injured hip but has not had any setbacks, a source confirmed to ESPN on Monday.
The procedure was part of Pouncey's normal rehab process, the source said.
Pouncey had two surgeries in the past two years http://www.officialpanthersstore.com/cheap-youth-carolina-panthers-roman-harper-pro-line-team-color-black-jersey-105814-p-614.html after suffering major hip injuries in back-to-back seasons. He missed 13 games in that span as a result. The stem cell procedure was first reported by the The Palm Beach Post.
Pictures on social media surfaced Monday of Pouncey using a crutch while attending the funeral of former college teammate Aaron Hernandez.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase said recently at the NFL owners meetings that Pouncey will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. The team Chris Hogan Authentic Jersey will be extra cautious with Pouncey with the goal of getting him to play a full season.
Miami went 10-6 last season and made the playoffs for the first time since 2008 despite Pouncey playing just five games.

adidas: Wie viel Kurspotenzial bleibt übrig?
Dank einer spektakulären Rekordjagd hat http://www.sportschuhebestellen.com die adidas-Aktie 2016 die beste Performance im DAX abgeliefert. Auch wenn die Aktie in den vergangenen Wochen an Schwung eingebüßt hat, gehört sie seit Jahresbeginn 2017 immer noch zur Spitzengruppe im deutschen Blue Chip Index. Zudem konnten die Herzogenauracher zuletzt einen ganz besonderen Erfolg verbuchen:
Das US-Marktforschungsinstitut NPD Group hatte ausgerechnet, dass der meistverkaufte Sneaker auf dem US-Markt 2016 zum ersten Mal seit zehn Jahren wieder von adidas stammt. Europas größter Sportartikelhersteller punktete demnach vor allem mit dem bereits über 40 Jahre alten, jedoch 2014 überarbeiteten, Modell „Superstar“. In Sachen Größe kommt adidas damit trotzdem noch immer nicht an den US-Konkurrenten Nikehttp://www.sportschuherabatt.com heran. Allerdings wird man sich in Herzogenaurach über einen solchen Achtungserfolg dennoch gefreut haben.
Die jüngsten Verkaufserfolge in den USA stehen stellvertretend für die positive Entwicklung, die der adidas-Konzern zuletzt insgesamt an den Tag legen konnte. Längst vergessen scheinen die Probleme, die adidas das schwächelnde Geschäft in Russland und die Golfsparte TaylorMade bereitet hatten. Bei der Präsentation der 2016er-Geschäftsergebnisse am 8. März sprach Konzernchef Kasper Rorsted von einem außergewöhnlichen Jahr. Zudem durfte er verkünden, dass adidas erstmals in der Unternehmensgeschichte einen Rekordgewinn von mehr als 1 Mrd. Euro erzielt hatte. Die Umsätze wurden währungsbereinigt gegenüber dem Vorjahr deutlich um 18 Prozent auf 19,3 Mrd. EuroNike Air Max Damen Sale gesteigert. Zudem zeigte sich das Management für die kommenden Jahre noch optimistischer.
Die langfristige Prognose wurde deutlich angehoben. Das Unternehmen beabsichtigt, sein Umsatz- und Gewinnwachstum im Rahmen seines strategischen Geschäftsplans „Creating the New“ bis zum Jahr 2020 erheblich zu beschleunigen. Demnach erwartet adidas einen währungsbereinigten Anstieg des Umsatzes von durchschnittlich 10 bis 12 Prozent pro Jahr. Zuvor wollte adidas zwischen 2015 und 2020 im hohen einstelligen Bereich wachsen. Der Gewinn aus fortgeführten Geschäftsbereichen sollte ursprünglich im Schnitt um rund 15 Prozent zulegen. Jetzt traut man sich Zuwächse von 20 bis 22 Prozent pro Jahr zu.
Auch wenn adidas zuletzt immer wieder mit positiven Nachrichten aufwarten konnte, stellt sich die Frage, ob die erfreulichen Wachstumsaussichten nicht längst im Aktienkurs enthalten sind. Die seit fast zwei Jahren andauernde Kursrallye hat ihre Spuren unter anderem in Form einer alles andere als günstigen Bewertung der adidas-Aktie hinterlassen. Es stellt sich die Frage, wo kurzfristig neues Kurspotenzial herkommen soll, um für eine anhaltende Rekordjagd zu sorgen. Zudem muss sich adidas ausgerechnet im so wichtigen Fußball-Geschäft immer wieder neuer Angriffe des US-Konkurrenten Nike erwehren. In den USA haben wiederum Emporkömmlinge wie Under Armour den Respekt vor den Herzogenaurachern abgelegt.
Spekulative Anleger, die steigende Kurse der adidas-Aktie erwarten, könnten mit einem WAVE XXL Call der Deutschen Bank (WKN DL9WS8)Nike Air Max Thea Billig auf ein solches Szenario setzen. Der Hebel dieses WAVEs XXL liegt derzeit bei 3,74. Wer aber als spekulativer Anleger eher short-orientiert ist, könnte mit einem WAVE XXL Put der Deutschen Bank (WKN DM19RL, aktueller Hebel 3,78) auf fallende Kurse der adidas-Aktie setzen.

A major collaboration between Off-White and Nike is in the works.
The upcoming Off-White x Nike http://www.newoutletonline.com sneaker collaboration is both the best and worst kept secret in the sneaker world these days. On the one hand, our repeated requests to Nike for any information on the release date or even a confirmation of the collaboration's existence have been essentially stonewalled. On the other, not only have several images of the supposed sneakers leaked online, but Virgil Abloh (the man behind Off-White) himself has worn the shoes on several occasions—including on the biggest night in fashion, the Met Gala. So, it doesn't seem that Abloh has much interest in being inconspicuous about the collaboration, though details remain in short supply. That said, here's what info we do have thus far.

So, it doesn't seem that Abloh has much interest in being inconspicuous about the collaboration, though details remain in short supply. That said, here's what info we do have thus far.
1. Pictures of Five Off-White x Nike Sneakers Have Surfaced
So far, images have surfaced of the Off-White x Air Force 1, the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 (in a version of the classic "Chicago" colorway, which makes sense as Abloh is a Chicago native), the Off-White x Nike Air Max 90, the Off-White x Nike Blazer Mid, and the Off-White x Nike VaporMax. Some outlets have reported that there will be ten Cheap Nike Air Max For Men sneakers in the line-up, including the Nike Presto and Cortez, but that detail remains unconfirmed.
2. Each Uses a "Half-Finished" Design, According to Abloh
During a recent lecture at RISD, Abloh described the reasoning for the heavily branded, inside-out design of the sneakers. Wearing the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 sneakers, Abloh said, "They're basically half-finished shoes that are existing in the real world and have been produced. To me that's a quintessential bullet point of the Off-White design philosophy and the freedom we have now." It's a design methodology that high-fashion designers like Maison Margiela (one of Abloh's self-described idols) became famous for, and from that, we get details like the non-functional lace-loops near the toe, the half stitched on Nike swoosh, and the labeled shoe parts, like "shoelaces" and "Air." As for why Abloh uses quotes around seemingly literal descriptions, he said that he does it to make people look twice at the word and to give it a new context.
3. They'll Probably Cost More Than an Average Pair of Nikes
So far, the only reported price for any shoe in the collaboration is for the Air Jordan 1, which will supposedly retail for $350. Any time a high-profile fashion designer works with a big sneaker label, whether it's Nike or Adidas or Puma, higher price points are to be expected. And with all of the extra work that ironically these "half-finished" shoes must take to create, we wouldn't be surprised to see every shoe in the set retail for $300+.

Nike weist Anschuldigungen von Marathon-Star Kenenisa Bekele zurück
Nike hat die Anschuldigungen von Kenenisa Bekele zurückgewiesen. Der von der US-Marke gesponserte Lauf-Star aus Äthiopien hatte nach dem http://www.markenchuheonline.com London-Marathon behauptet, er habe sich in neuen Nike-Schuhen Blasen gelaufen und deshalb ein besseres Ergebnis verpasst. Nike, das ohne Bekele den Weltrekord-Versuch „Breaking2“ plant, reagierte mit einer Richtigstellung.

Nach dem Rennen, das er als Zweiter abschloss, hatte Bekele gesagt: „I used new shoes. When I was between 15km and 20km, the shoes started blistering Nike Air Max 90 Essential Damen my foot. My foot was not in a good position because of the shoes.“Eine unangenehme Sache.

Bekele ist nicht Teil von „Breaking2“Bei der Aktion „Breaking2“ werden die drei Nike-Athleten Eliud Kipchoge, Lelisa Desisa und Zersenay Tadese auf der Rennstrecke in Monza (Italien) ab 6.

Broncos re-sign defensive lineman Billy Winn, waive Bobby Richardson

The Broncos on Wednesday shuffled http://www.authenticpatriotsstore.com/shop-by-players-andrew-franks-jersey-c-1_4.html defensive lineman by waiving Bobby Richardson — only two months after signing him — and re-signing defensive end Billy Winn.
Winn joined the Broncos on a one-year contract last August when former lineman Phil Taylor was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury. Winn played in all 16 games (two starts) last season and finished with 19 tackles and one fumble recovery.
The five-year veteran spent his first three seasons http://www.billsjerseysale.com/shop-by-players-shaq-lawson-jersey-c-1_48.html in Cleveland after being selected by the Browns in the sixth round of the 2012 draft. He was traded to Indianapolis before the 2015 season and played 12 games for the Colts before landing on injured reserve.
He returns to a defensive line that includes the free-agency additions of Domata Peko and Zach Kerr, and second-round draft selection DeMarcus Walker. The Broncos also have Jared Crick, who has a year left on his contract, starter Derek Wolfe, and the return of Adam Gotsis, a second-round pick in 2016 who was active all last season and tallied 14 tackles, one pass breakup and one fumble recovery.
“The defensive line, in my opinion, we've Robert Blanton Youth Jersey gotten better there,” coach Vance Joseph said. “We've gotten bigger and stronger there with Peko and Kerr and now with Walker being a dynamic inside rusher. That helps there, and with Adam Gotsis being healthy this year. The defensive line, it looks different. We're big and we're strong and explosive.”

Buccaneers testing guard Ali Marpet at center
Jameis Winston, DeSean Jackson and http://www.cheappatriotssale.com/shop-by-players-john-hannah-jersey-c-1_31.html a fiesty kicking competition will likely dominate headlines during Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp, what with 'Hard Knocks' documenting their every waking move this summer.
But one storyline that will almost certainly live under the radar, if it lasts until August, is Ali Marpet's transition on the offensive line.
Entering his third season, Marpet told the http://www.dolphinsjerseyofficial.com/shop-by-players-39-larry-csonka-jersey-c-1_19.html Tampa Bay Times on Friday that the Bucs plan to test him at center this summer, moving him inside from his natural right guard position. As a first step, the former second-round pick has been handing snaps to Winston in workouts this week.
"I've been able to get with Jameis (Winston) a couple of times, and otherwise, I've snapped with anyone who will catch the ball," Marpet told the Times. "I go Ted Karras Kids Jersey until I feel good, whether that's 20 snaps or 100, whatever it ends up being."
Marpet's move left along the line is necessary because of the return of former Seahawks guard J.R. Sweezy, who spent last season on the physically-unable-to-perform list with a back injury.
With Sweezy occupying Marpet's right guard position, Marpet hopes that the Bucs are going to start training camp, and the season, off with him at center, adding, "If that's the vision they have, that's really cool." Tampa Bay currently employs two veteran centers, Joe Hawley and Evan Smith, but Marpet sounds confident he can win the job.
"I'm a center," Marpet continued. "It's always been in the back pocket. I can still play guard. I know. I've played guard. I imagine they're Tom Waddle Womens Jersey not saying 'You're the starter, no matter what you do.' But they like the idea, so we're going to try it."
Maybe "Marpet to center" isn't the sexiest position battle or change of the offseason, but hey, it's something.

Not only is Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill http://www.officialbengalssales.com/shop-by-players-boomer-esiason-jersey-c-1_9.html fully recovered from his worrisome December knee injury, but he's better than ever and poised to break into the top 10 in the NFL at his position, says quarterback guru Jeff Christensen, who has been working with him in recent weeks.
“He's much healthier than you might http://www.officialbengalsshop.com/shop-by-players-will-sutton-jersey-c-2_104.html think,” Christensen said by phone. “He looks good as far as mobility and strength. He's moving very fluidly. He's ahead of where he was last year in terms of everything - understanding, feet positioning, balance. He is doing a much better job of self-correcting.
“His awareness of the feel of a ball being slightly Gerald McCoy Womens Jersey errant, why it was errant, and how efficient the next rep is has gone way, way, up. He's more confident this year.”
Christensen believes Tannehill – who ranked 12th among NFL starting quarterbacks in passer rating at 93.5 last season - is ready to take the next step.
“I have a really good feeling,” Christensen said. “I think he will start out of gate quickly. He will be top 12 out of the gate [among all NFL quarterbacks]. If he's not top eight throughout the course of the rest of the season or higher, I'll be shocked.”

Low-cost airlines blaze trail in race over the Atlantic
Norwegian Air lays down challenge to legacy groups in lucrative long-haul market

Freddie Laker may have failed at cracking the “no frills” long-haul flying market. But the late airline entrepreneur's pioneering spirit will take to the skies again in June with his picture emblazoned on a Norwegian Air Shuttle aircraft.
High quality global journalism requires investment. Please share this article with others using the link below, do not cut & paste the article. See our T&Cs and Copyright Policy for more detail. Email ftsales.support@ft.com to buy additional rights.
One of Norwegian's new red and white fleet, which will open up direct routes from small Irish and UK regional airports to the US from as little as £69, will have Laker's image on the tail fin and will be part of the Scandinavian low-cost carrier's attempt to cement market share in the intensifying battle between the airlines over the Atlantic.
While Laker's low-cost service between London and New York in the 1970s failed after five years, Norwegian is hoping the launch of the next generation of fuel-efficient narrow-body jets will help it “change the game” in making “no frills” long-haul flying profitable over the long-term.
The innovative deployment of single-aisle jets normally used only for short-haul operations is the next stage of Norwegian's plan to shake up the lucrative transatlantic market, which for decades has been dominated by a handful of US and European legacy airlines.
It is a high-risk gamble for Norwegian. Only last week questions were raised about potential aircraft delivery delays after Boeing temporarily suspended test flights of its new 737 Max 8 jet, which Norwegian will use for its transatlantic service, after discovering problems with the engine.

But Bjorn Kjos, chief executive of Norwegian, is confident his strategy can pay off, particularly as Boeing still plans to deliver the first 737 Max 8 aircraft to its customer in June. Norwegian says the launch of its transatlantic routes from Edinburgh, Ireland and Belfast to the US will not be delayed.
Since 2013, Norwegian has used Boeing's 787 Dreamliner to launch low-cost services between Europe and the US. The competition from Norwegian, and other low-cost players such as Canada's WestJet and Iceland's WOW Air, has seen legacy airlines rush to protect their large market share.
In March, International Airlines Group, owner of British Airways, launched Level, a low-cost brand that will begin flying next month from Barcelona to four destinations, including Los Angeles and Oakland, the secondary airport for San Francisco. Lufthansa is expanding its “no frills” subsidiary Eurowings, while Air France-KLM is also launching a lower-cost airline called Boost.
While the likes of Norwegian and WestJet have proved there is demand for cheap transatlantic flights, analysts believe that the use of new-generation narrow-body aircraft on the north Atlantic could make the difference in turning low-cost, long-haul flying profitable.
High quality global journalism requires investment. Please share this article with others using the link below, do not cut & paste the article. See our T&Cs and Copyright Policy for more detail. Email ftsales.support@ft.com to buy additional rights.
As well as Boeing's 737 Max 8, Norwegian will use a new long-range version of Airbus's A321 to offer services between regional European airports and smaller US hubs, a cheaper option than its existing strategy.
According to an analysis by Barclays, Norwegian's current low-cost long-haul wide-body business model is making a margin of about 2 per cent to 3 per cent, compared with margins of about 15 per cent to 20 per cent that most legacy airlines are generating on the north Atlantic.
“That's not good enough to survive an economic cycle. It doesn't stop lots of people having a go for a few years — but whether it's a sustainable, profitable business model is another question,” says Oliver Sleath, analyst at Barclays.
“They've been very lucky that as they've grown, the fuel price has halved. I think without that they wouldn't be around.”
New technology means the next-generation narrow-bodies will be able to fly six to eight-hour routes at a lower cost than even the most fuel-efficient wide-bodies.
This will enable airlines to increase the Cheap Shoes Nike Air Max frequency of flights on existing transatlantic routes, as well as unlock a range of new nonstop services. Barclays estimates that this could equate to as many as 60 additional point-to-point routes.
High quality global journalism requires investment. Please share this article with others using the link below, do not cut & paste the article. See our T&Cs and Copyright Policy for more detail. Email ftsales.support@ft.com to buy additional rights.
Andrew Lobbenberg, analyst at HSBC, agrees that the economics of the new narrow-body planes are “really appealing”.
“It means smaller markets that you once laughed at being a transatlantic market can become one, hubs get overflown and airlines that couldn't previously fly transatlantic markets . . . now can,” he says.
From next month, Norwegian will be using the 737 Max 8 aircraft to launch 10 routes to the US from five UK and Irish cities. The range for this plane means it will be confined to flying from the UK or Ireland to the US east coast.
However, the launch of the A321 LR in 2019, which has an additional 500-mile range, will provide more potential, with the ability to fly longer distances from continental Europe to the US and Canada.
Norwegian's Mr Kjos says the two strategies will secure its position in the low-cost long-haul market. “I think the two models serve different purposes. As we saw with low-cost short-haul flying, you can create new layers of people who want to travel,” he says.
But it is not just Norwegian eyeing up the potential of the new technology. Both Aer Lingus, part of International Airlines Group, and US-based JetBlue have signalled interest in using the A321 LR. For the latter, this could see it make its first foray into the transatlantic market.
“Will the new narrow-body aircraft facilitate more entries? Almost certainly. Is that what either the new boys or the legacy boys want? Not on your life,” says Andrew Charlton, a Geneva-based aviation analyst.
Some in the industry remain sceptical of the low-cost, long-haul narrow-body model. “The question is how many of these smaller markets can be developed and supported. Is there enough demand from travellers?” says John Strickland, an aviation consultant.

High quality global journalism requires investment. Please share this article with others using the link below, do not cut & paste the article. See our T&Cs and Copyright Policy for more detail. Email ftsales.support@ft.com to buy additional rights.
He points out that a number of transatlantic services to UK regional airports have been dropped by US legacy carriers recently, highlighting the risk of filling planes on these routes. “That is already a sign that it will be challenging, even with a different model with lower costs and fares,” says Mr Strickland.
The new transatlantic contenders are also likely to face a strong fight from the legacy airlines, determined to defend their market share.
“Everybody knows flying across the transatlantic is the most lucrative aviation market in the world. It is no great surprise that it is under the attention of Nike Air Max White Cheap other carriers who are trying to enter the market, but I would not underestimate the full-service airlines,” says Shai Weiss, chief commercial officer at Virgin Atlantic.
The airline, which has a transatlantic partnership with US carrier Delta, says it has no plans to launch a low-cost subsidiary as its rivals have — but would focus on competing on price.
“The legacy airlines are all incredibly alive to the threat of low-cost long-haul services,” notes Mr Lobbenberg. “It's where they make the majority of their profits. They aren't going to make the same silly mistake they did with European short haul, where they lost out to the low-cost carriers.”

Vier Männer überfallen 23-Jährigen
Ein 23-Jähriger ist auf der Stühlinger Straße von vier Männern überfallen worden. Die Polizei sucht Zeugen.
Der 23-Jährige war http://www.topmarkenschuhe.com in der Nacht zum Mittwoch, 10.

NIALL Horan may be hard at work promoting http://www.authenticpatriotsstore.com/shop-by-players-byron-maxwell-jersey-c-1_10.html his latest single, but he's still managed to find time to buy gifts for old One Direction bandmate Liam Payne, his girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, and their baby boy Bear.
The 23-year-old Irish star says he “can't wait” to meet two-month-old Bear – but finding a good time to visit has proven difficult.
Liam, 23, has been spending time in American putting the finishing touches to his own debut solo album – with 33-year-old Chezza staying at home.
Niall has himself been working on new solo music following the warm reaction to his first single, This Town, last year.
“I haven't seen the baby yet, and I can't wait. I've got all me presents… I've got trainers, a couple little bits and pieces, a couple of http://www.billsonlineofficial.com/shop-by-players-o-j-simpson-jersey-c-1_38.html hampers,” Niall told radio host Darryl Morris.
“I think Liam's been away this week doing his album, and when he gets back I leave,” he continued.
“So I was just trying to find the time to get to get down to them, but I've been keeping in touch and I'm looking forward to meeting the baby,” the star said.
Niall unleashed his single, Slow Hands, on Thursday and has been ramping up his promotion duties – giving fans a sneak preview of his track on Twitter.
Gushing about the new effort, he wrote: “I've been waiting a long time for you to hear this song . Hope ya love it!”
Earlier speaking on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show, Niall cast his Shaq Lawson Youth Jersey opinion on his other One Direction co-stars solo efforts.
“It's great! I guess it's very interesting for the public to see everyone's individual styles as the songs are coming out. Because I know the boys really well and we talk to each other on a daily basis,” he said.
“I know what their taste in music is so none of this has been a shock to me. It ['Sign of the Times'] was very Harry. This song is very me,” he explained.
“Louis loves a good night out so his taste in the EDM/dance world is - that's him,” he continued.
He then teased: “Liam's good mates with Pharrell so I presume he's been in [the studio] with him and stuff like that. So I'm looking forward to hearing what he's doing.”
However he gave no opinion on the music of Zayn Malik – the former 1D star who has thus far proved to be the most successful of the group.
Harry Styles released his own debut last Cameron Brate Womens Jersey month to much fanfare and it hit the top of the charts – but shifted considerably less numbers than Zayn's debut, Pillow Talk.

Miami Dolphins' Ndamukong Suh to mentor Davon Godchaux, Vincent Taylor
The Dolphins' newest defensive tackles are getting ready to take an introductory class on the position taught by Professor Ndamukong Suh.
Miami hopes it found instant contributors by http://www.cheapdolphinsonline.com/shop-by-players-kenyan-drake-jersey-c-1_31.html drafting Davon Godchoux in the fifth round and Vincent Taylor in the sixth, and those two will have as good of an opportunity to develop as any rookie could imagine. Playing next to Suh, who is routinely double- and triple-teamed, has lots of advantages. Being at his end of the practice field helps, too.
Suh's an interesting mentor. He plays the position as well as anyone in recent history, but isn't exactly known for having a warm personality. Some Dolphins have said he's more engaging with teammates behind the scenes than he is with the media, though, and his post-draft phone call with Godchoux had a welcoming tone to it.
“It was very friendly,” Godchoux said with a smile. “I was surprised.”
It also included a message of “shut your mouth up and learn,” which is terrific advice. After two years with Miami, Suh has established ownership of the defensive line's section of the locker room (along with Cameron Wake) and it's unlikely http://www.cheappatriotssale.com/shop-by-players-marcus-cannon-jersey-c-1_45.html any d-tackle will enjoy being there if he's doesn't aspire to meet Suh's standards.
That could be an intimidating environment, but Taylor and Godchaux sound excited about the chance to study alongside a master craftsman.
“Growing up, I used to always tell myself I liked the way Ndamukong Suh played,” Taylor said. “I'm not saying that just because I got drafted by Miami, but I've been saying that in every interview.
“Ndamukong Suh was always that guy I looked up to and for me to be able to be on the same team with him and just learn from him, I am looking forward to see what God has in store for me and what I can learn from him.”
Godchaux was the 11th defensive tackle selected, though many believe he's better than that. An off-field domestic violence allegation while at LSU—all charges were quickly dropped, and the Dolphins said they felt comfortable taking him after a thorough investigation by their security people—was thought to be the main reason he slipped in the draft.
NFL.com ranked him the No. 58 overall prospect in this year's class, and he was confident enough to leave after his junior year. He's 6-foot-4, 299 pounds and had 12.5 sacks over the past two seasons.
Taylor was the 14th pick at his position, but comes in with equally impressive credentials. He put up 12 sacks for a total of 87 lost yards over the last two seasons, plus 99 tackles and two forced fumbles.
Suh, who hasn't been around for the voluntary offseason workouts, is the only certainty for Miami in the middle of its defensive line. He'll team up with Leonte Carroo Authentic Jersey defensive ends Andre Branch and Wake, and the Dolphins are looking for one more starting tackle.
That job will likely be filled by a competition between Jordan Phillips, Godchaux and Taylor. New defensive coordinator Matt Burke said it's open. The Dolphins have Nick Williams and Lawrence Okoye as well and could add someone else in the late phases of free agency.
Phillips, a second-round pick two years ago, is the leader at the moment. He started 11 games last season and upped his snap count from 37 percent as a rookie to 54 percent. There were times when his natural talent was unmistakable, but the Dolphins were openly frustrated by his inconsistency.
“We're gonna put a lot of pressure on Jordan this year,” coach Adam Gase said. “We feel like the talent is there and he's doing a lot of things the right way. We thought last year at the end of the year he was doing things the right way and we were headed in the right direction.”
That was a tenuous endorsement and it came a few weeks before Miami drafted Godchaux and Taylor. Maybe that's what Gase meant when he Ted Karras Youth Jersey said the pressure will rise on Phillips. He's already made clear he's got no aversion to rookies jumping ahead of veterans on the depth chart, and the two new guys are sure to get their chance.

Wem die Rosa-Variante doch ein bisschen too http://www.sportschuhebestellen.com much ist (soll's ja geben), der kann auf die beige Version zurückgreifen (auch wunderschön!).
Die Filmfestspiele von Cannes haben gerade erst begonnen und schon jetzt gibt es unzählige Fashion-Hingucker: Bella Hadid zum Beispiel hat mal wieder ein seeeeehr heißes Kleid getragen (erinnert uns irgendwie an den Auftritt des Models vergangenes Jahr beim Filmfestival).
Aber wir können jetzt schon behaupten: Mit Nike Air Max 90 Herren Billig so einem bezaubernden Dress wie Schauspielerin Elle Fanning wird wohl niemand mehr an der Côte d'Azur dieses Jahr aufkreuzen.

The Miami Dolphins are coming off a 10-6 season http://www.billsshopofficial.com/shop-by-players-preston-brown-jersey-c-1_39.html and their first playoff appearance since 2008, but they are not satisfied. Coach Adam Gase has created a new culture within the Dolphin community, a culture that has the players and fans believing. Miami's trend of “rewarding within” means that the roster will look nearly the same, but will the performance? Here is a look at some bold predictions for the 2017 season.
Ryan Tannehill will have the best TD/Int ratio of his career
Ryan Tannehill is entering his sixth year as the starting quarterback and fans are getting impatient with his progression. Due to his season ending injury last year, he posted a career low in passing yards but a career high in passer rating. Tannehill's best season for TD/Int radio was in 2014 when he posted a 27/12, a 2.25 TD/Int ratio. Now that Ajayi is taking some of Tannehill's load, I can see him posting a TD/Int ratio between 2.5-3.0.
DeVante Parker will post new highs in receptions and yards
Typically, you see the biggest jump from wide http://www.buccaneersprostore.com/cool-prices-clinton-mcdonald-98-jersey-replica-shop.html receivers in their third year. Is this the year DeVante Parker makes a leap? Due to a foot injury during his rookie year, Parker only played in eight games. In the final six games of the 2015 season, Parker racked up 22 catches, 445 yards, and three touchdowns. Projected over 16 games, that equates to 59 catches, 1,187 yards, and eight touchdowns. Parker was showing his first-round talent. In 2016, Parker took strides forward, playing 15 games and posting 56 receptions. Parker has shown how reliable his hands are but the numbers he is putting up are very inconsistent. Coach Adam Gase has called out Parker publicly for his inconsistent play. There may not be a bigger bust candidate on the Miami roster than DeVante Parker. I believe that Parker will deliver. I can see him with 65-70 receptions and over 800 yards.
The Miami Dolphins will win at least 10 games
The Miami Dolphins have one of the hardest schedules going into 2017. With games against the AFC West, Baltimore, and the usual two against the Patriots, the schedule does not favor Miami. Miami is projected to have seven Larry Csonka Youth Jersey wins and their off-season has been given the grade of a “D,” but being underrated is something Miami is used to. I believe Miami will use this as motivation. When healthy, there is nearly no team Miami can't compete with.
The Offensive Line will allow less than 25 Sacks
The O-line is the most criticized position by Miami fans. Every game in 2016 seemed to have a different lineup. Despite the criticism, Miami had a top ten Offensive line. They ranked tenth in sacks allowed, ninth in rushing yards and eighth in yards per rush. They allowed fifteen less sacks than the 2015 line that allowed 45 sacks. With the addition of Asiata, moving Tunsil to his original position and a lot of line depth, Miami looks to be set. The front office even sent out a message in early May telling fans to stop worrying about the guards.
The three-headed monster will record at least 20 sacks
Cameron Wake is coming off a 11.5 sack season. Andre Branch is coming off a 5.5. That equals 17. Who could add three more sacks? Charles Harris. Miami fans are worried about his role due to the depth at the defensive end position, but I Montee Ball Authentic Jersey believe that he will cause some trouble to opposing quarterbacks, even as a backup.

Taking a closer look at the Buffalo Bills' wide receiver position
BuffaLowDown contributor Cole Shelton takes a http://www.dolphinsjerseyofficial.com/shop-by-players-94-mario-williams-jersey-c-1_46.html look at the Buffalo Bills' current wide receivers and where they will land come Week 1.
The Buffalo Bills lost a lot of key contributors at the receiver position this off-season, those being Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. It opened up two major roster spots that needed to be addressed this off-season.
And that is exactly what the Buffalo Bills did by drafting a receiver and adding cheap veteran options.
The Bills will head into training camp with Sammy Watkins the clear number one receiver. All the other positions, well they are up for grabs. The big question about the receivers is can Sammy Watkins stay healthy.
Sammy Watkins will enter training camp as the http://www.newpatriotssale.com/nfl-new-england-patriots-replica-tom-brady-jersey-12-outlet.html clear-cut number one receiver again, but there is uncertainty with Watkins. The Bills did not pick up his 5th year option and will be a free agent at years end.
The most likely scenario is Watkins re-signs on a short term bridge deal to prove he can be healthy.
Watkins will also have added pressure, with Woods and Goodwin gone. Watkins needs to step up and stay healthy if the Bills want to compete this year.
Sammy Watkins Role: Starting Receiver
Zay Jones
The Buffalo Bills traded up in the 2nd round to select Zay Jones, who should come in and compete for a starting receiver role. Jones comes to Mike Ditka Youth Jersey the Bills along with his college receiver coach, which should help Jones out.
Jones has very good hands and catches basically everything thrown to him. Although, speed is a knock on Jones, if he can play Robert Woods' role on the inside and get yards after catch, it will only help the Bills offense.
And, if Jones starts to become a threat as a receiver it will open the field up for Watkins and limit double teams.
Zay Jones Role: Starting Receiver Opposite Sammy Watkins
Andre Holmes
Before the draft, when Holmes signed, he was projected to be the starting receiver opposite Watkins. Now, with the selection of Jones, it appears Holmes will have to fight for that spot.
Holmes is a valuable receiver who won't see the bulk of throws, but can be a very good red zone receiver. He's a big body at 6'4″ 210 pounds C.J. Uzomah Authentic Jersey and can also play up the middle. In the end, Homes' signing will be a huge one for the depth of the receiver position.
Andre Holmes Role: Starting Receiver/Backup

Nike Satin Air Max 95s“: Frühlingshafter kann ein Sneaker nicht sein!
Jetzt wird es frisch und frühlingshaft! Der neue „Air Max“ von http://www.sportschuherabatt.com Nike lässt deine weißen Sneaker alt aussehen.
Der „Air Max 65s“ von Nike in der Farbe „Liquid Lime“ hat einen Satin-Bezug und eine geriffelte Oberfläche und passt perfekt http://www.topmarkenschuhe.com in die „Greenery“-Farbwelt, der Pantone-Farbe 2017.

Patriots Draft Pick Deatrich Wise Sees Himself In Ex-Pats Star Chandler Jones
FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England http://www.buccaneersprostore.com/best-selling-brent-grimes-24-jersey-replica-online-outlet.html Patriots added a Chandler Jones-esque player Saturday when they drafted Arkansas defensive end Deatrich Wise. Just ask him. At 6-foot-5, 274 pounds, Wise is a tad heavier than Jones was when he entered the NFL in 2012, but otherwise, the pass rushers have startlingly similar physical profiles. It's no surprise, then, that Wise, whom the Patriots selected in the fourth round (131st overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft, said he has modeled his game after the former Patriots star. Just take a look http://www.cheapdolphinsonline.com/shop-by-players-mark-duper-jersey-c-1_39.html at Wise's and Jones' measurables from their respective NFL Scouting Combines: Deatrich Wise Height: 6-foot-5 Weight: 274 pounds Arm length: 35 5/8 inches Hand size: 10 1/2 inches 40-yard dash: 4.92 seconds Bench press: 22 reps Vertical jump: 33 inches Broad jump: 125 inches 3-cone drill: 7.07 seconds
Chandler Jones (in 2012) Height: 6-foot-5 Weight: 266 pounds Arm length: 35 1/2 inches Hand size: 9 3/4 inches 40-yard dash: 4.87 seconds Bench press: 22 reps Vertical jump: 35 inches Broad jump: 120 inches 3-cone drill: 7.07 Larry Csonka Womens Jersey seconds NFL prospect evaluation site MockDraftable listed — you guessed it — Jones as Wise's closest pro comparison.
Wise, who will rejoin former Arkansas teammate Trey Flowers in New England's defensive front seven, has heard the Jones comparison before. “I've watched him a few times,” he said in his introductory conference call with New England reporters. “I was also compared to him by a few people. Similar body style, similar play style. We have long arms, we're real good with our first step. Great turn around the edge, rushing the passer. He's a relentless, aggressive player, and I model my game similar to his.” Jones, a first-round pick of the Patriots in 2012, played his first four pro seasons in New England, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2015. He was traded to Arizona last offseason and signed a five-year contract Ja'Wuan James Authentic Jersey extension with the Cardinals in March. In 50 games at Arkansas, Wise tallied 112 tackles, 16 1/2 sacks and four forced fumbles. He was the second defensive end the Patriots drafted, following Youngstown State's Derek Rivers (83rd overall). Thumbnail photo via Crystal LoGiudice/USA TODAY Sports Images

Players with Connecticut ties hoping for shot in NFL
Many view the NFL draft through the http://www.dolphinsjerseyofficial.com/shop-by-players-23-jay-ajayi-jersey-c-1_10.html images of first-round picks from football factories making their way across the stage to exchange hugs with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
However, there are so many more compelling stories of prospects who believe they can cut it in the big time if only given a chance who don't get their emotional moment shown during the three-day coverage of the NFL draft.
Twelve years ago six of the 26 first-team selections on the 2005 Register's All-State football team would appear in regular season games in the NFL. In 2014, Fairfield County stars Khairi Fortt and Kevin Pierre-Louis were taken in the fourth round while Silas Redd made the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent. More http://www.newpatriotssale.com/nfl-new-england-patriots-cheap-sebastian-vollmer-jersey-76-discount.html recently, Stratford native Tyler Matakevich was a seventh-round pick who made 20 tackles as a rookie with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fellow linebacker Don Cherry earned a spot on the practice squad of the Philadelphia Eagles after going undrafted.
When the final four rounds are held on Saturday, there will be some anxious moments for the latest batch of Connecticut natives eyeing a career in the NFL.
Norwalk native Noel Thomas hasn't needed to look far for motivation as during the lead up to the NFL Scouting Combine and UConn's pro day, he worked out with Matakevich.
“The first thing he asked me was how many formal meetings I had at the combine and me and him had the same amount, zero,” said Thomas, who set a UConn program record with 100 catches as a senior. We obviously met with http://www.officialbearsshops.com/shop-by-players-logan-paulsen-jersey-c-2_44.html teams but formal, he didn't have any of them so look at him now. I met with all the teams, it is kind of just conversation, they are trying to see what kind of person you are, see if you can talk, see if you fit in with the team. All of them appreciate my hands and wanted to see me run.”
Now Thomas gets to see if he hears his name called as former Bunnell High and UConn receiver Marcus Easley did in 2010.
University of New Haven offensive tackle Zach Voytek not only played against Matakevich when Voytek was at Trumbull High and Matakevich was the resident superstar at city rival St. Joseph, but he was a classmate of Cherry's.
“Knowing that they were able to make it to the next level was really motivating, really exciting to know that they made it and I can make it helps motivate me a little more,” Voytek said.
Madison's Matt Walsh, who was a captain during his senior season as UConn, is on the radar of pro scouts and he has the added advantage Andy Dalton Youth Jersey of having played both fullback and linebacker at UConn. Danbury' Austin Calitro, who like Cherry was a standout linebacker at Villanova, is another Connecticut native in the running to be signed as a free agent if he isn't drafted.

Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Garoppolo
BOSTON - It's not an uncommon sight to http://www.officialbengalsshop.com/shop-by-players-sam-acho-jersey-c-2_96.html see several Patriots players on hand to watch the Celtics, and that was the case on Friday for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft, tight end Rob Gronkowski, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, safety Patrick Chung, linebacker Darius Fleming and receiver Brandin Cooks had court-side seats for the game at TD Garden.
Former Patriot LeGarrette Blount, who just http://www.officialbuccaneersshop.com/shop-by-players-alterraun-verner-jersey-c-1_5.html signed with the Eagles, was also on hand.
The Boston Celtics faced a tall task in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, trailing the Cleveland Cavaliers 2-0 and missing their best player Isaiah Thomas.
But the Celtics managed to stay alive for much of the period, getting big contributions from Al Horford and Avery Bradley. One of Bradley's contributions was a gorgeous play in transition, driving to the basket, tucking the ball behind Steven Jackson Kids Jersey his back to avoid Iman Shumpert's defense and converting a tough layup.
There was never much hope for the Celtics in Game 3, and the Cavaliers confirmed that by taking a 16-point lead into the break despite the best half the Celtics put together in the entire series. Boston competed hard defensively, ran nice sets and got good ball movement, resulting in 50 first-half points. Cleveland answered by raining fire on the Celtics from behind the arc.
Still, plays like Bradley's layup were a welcome respite from Boston's previous two games in which they were unceremoniously dispatched by halftime. Bradley's offensive contributions weren't enough to stop the Celtics from Roman Harper Womens Jersey dropping behind by double-digits after two quarters, but it did help demonstrate show that Boston -- for all the talk of sweeps -- wasn't simply going to lay down for Cleveland, despite the circumstances.

Gibt es bald keine iPhones und Nike-Schuhe mehr?
Trump will US-Firmen zwingen, in ihrem Heimatland zu produzieren. Für http://www.markenchuheonline.com Apple, Nike und Co heißt es: Anschnallen.
Donald Trump meint es offenbar ernst mit seiner patriotischen Industriepolitik. Er will, dass amerikanische Firmen in den USA produzieren, und dass die US-Firmen, die jenseits der Grenzen fertigen, dies künftig wieder im Heimatland tun. Welch weltfremde Sicht der Dinge! Sie ist gegen jede ökonomische Vernunft. Man muss gar nicht erst die Theorie der komparativen Kosten von David Ricardo bemühen und verstehen, dass diese Politik die wirtschaftlichen Realitäten negiert. Es gibt nun mal auf dieser Welt Länder, die gewisse Produkte günstiger produzieren können, weil dort das Lohnniveau niedriger ist.
Deshalb gibt es seit dem Beginn der Industrialisierung Wanderungsbewegungen von ganzen Branchen. Auch Deutschland verlor in http://www.sportschuhebestellen.com den vergangenen Jahrzehnten viele Industrien: Textil, Bekleidung, Schuhe, Möbel, Unterhaltungselektronik. Ein ähnlicher Exodus erfolgte in den USA. Er war dort sogar viel radikaler.
Marketing statt Produktion: Nike hat noch nie in den USA gefertigt
Nike Börsen-Chart zeigen hat seine Sportklamotten und -schuhe nie in den USA gefertigt. Nur deshalb konnte Nike so groß und erfolgreich werden und Adidas Börsen-Chart zeigen überrunden. Während nämlich in den späten 80er und frühen 90er Jahren Adidas noch teuer rund um Herzogenaurach produzierte, ließ Nike seine Sportschuhe von Anfang an kostengünstig in Fernost herstellen. Die gleiche Outsourcing-Strategie verfolgte Apple Börsen-Chart zeigen .
In den Headquarters von Apple im kalifornischen Cupertino und Nike in Beaverton vor den Toren Portlands wird nichts produziert. Dort werden Nike Air Max Billig kaufen die Produkte und Marketingstrategien entwickelt.
Die Hardware mit dem Apple- und Swoosh-Symbol kommt aus Asien und dort insbesondere aus China. In der Volksrepublik werden in den gigantischen Fabriken von Yue Yuen und Foxconn, wo oft zehntausende Chinesen beschäftigt sind, Nike-Schuhe und iPhones gefertigt.
Yue Yuen und Foxconn - wie werden diese Werkbänke in die USA versetzt?
Sollen diese Fabriken bald in Oregon oder Ohio stehen? Woher sollen die Arbeiter kommen? Und welche Löhne sollen sie erhalten? Sicher nicht chinesische. Also würden Produkte made in USA viel teurer werden. Der Preisanstieg vieler Produkte würde dann gerade diese Leute treffen, die Trump gewählt haben.
Und außerdem: China hat ja mehr als nur günstige Arbeitskräfte zu bieten. In den Branchen, in denen Nike und Apple agieren, hat das Land eine sehr gut funktionierende logistische Infrastruktur mit einem nahezu lückenlosen Zuliefernetz aufgebaut. Wollten die USA etwas Ähnliches aufbauen, würde das Jahre dauern.
Trumps Petitum nach einer Rückkehr abgewanderter Industrien ist also unrealistisch. Er könnte aber - wie er bereits angekündigt Nike Air Max Thea Billig hat - Zölle auf Produkte Made in China erheben. Aber dann müsste er diese auch auf Nike-Schuhe und iPhones anwenden. In dem Falle würde er sich mit den mächtigen CEOs vieler US-Konzerne, die in China produzieren lassen, anlegen.
Trumps nationalistische Industriepolitik ist ein Irrweg. Auf ihm werden keine ausgewanderten Branchen zurückkehren.

Men plead guilty to burglary, robbery charges
FARMINGTON — Three Fruitland men http://www.authenticcoltsshop.com/shop-by-players-dqwell-jackson-jersey-c-1_9.html have pleaded guilty to charges related to an armed robbery and home invasion of two elderly women near Kirtland last year.
Cory Redding, 20; Jacob Sandoval, 18; and Dillon Smith, 19, pleaded guilty on April 10 in district court to two second-degree felonies for armed robbery and aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon, according to court documents.
It was a part of a plea agreement with the San Juan County District Attorney's Office, according to assistant district attorney Dustin O'Brien. Each charge carries a sentence of up to nine years in prison.
Three additional felony charges for false imprisonment, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and tampering with evidence were dropped as http://www.authenticdolphinsjerseys.com/shop-by-players-spencer-paysinger-jersey-c-1_48.html part of the plea agreement.
Attempts by The Daily Times to contact attorneys for Sandoval, Redding and Smith were unsuccessful.
The three men initially entered not-guilty pleas during a May 9 hearing in district court.
During the April 10 change of plea hearing, they admitted to the burglary, according to court documents.
Sandoval and Redding entered the home in the 700 block of County Road 6100 on April 10, 2016, with a metal baton and air-powered pistol while Smith served as a lookout, according to court documents. They threatened the elderly women David Bakhtiari Womens Jersey in the residence and combed through the house, looking for goods.
Before they left the home, they ordered one of the women to lie face down on a bed while they escaped. Both women were using oxygen tanks, and one required the use of a wheelchair.
Detectives for the San Juan County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at Redding's home and found jewelry and money belonging to the women, according to The Daily Times archives.
O'Brien described the plea agreement as "good resolution" to prevent the victims from having to go through three separate trials while still requiring the defendants to take responsibility for their actions.
The men were not sentenced during the change of plea hearing.
They will be sent to the Central New Mexico Correctional Facility in Los Lunas for a 60-day presentence diagnostic, according to court documents. The diagnostic was requested by the DA's Office because the three men did not have Jay Ajayi Womens Jersey a criminal record, according to O'Brien.
He added it will give the court an idea of why the men committed the crime before sentencing.

Tennessee likely won't have the loaded http://www.cheappatriotssale.com/shop-by-players-jacoby-brissett-jersey-c-1_25.html draft class in 2018 that it did in 2017, but ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. thinks one UT player is near the top of his position in terms of 2018 draft rankings – punter Trevor Daniel.
Daniel is ranked as the third best senior punter for the 2018 class, ranking only behind Alabama punter J.K. Scott and Florida punter Johnny Townsend.
Daniel, who earned a scholarship http://www.dolphinsjerseyofficial.com/shop-by-players-4-matt-darr-jersey-c-1_20.html after coming to UT as a walk-on out of Dickson County, has become one of the best punters in the nation over the course of the past two seasons. He started 25 straight games for the Vols and has a career punting average of 45.1 yards per punt with 53 punts downed inside the 20 and a career long of 70.
He's been named to the Ray Guy Award Watch List the past two seasons and should be a serious contender for the award again in 2017.
No punters were picked in the 2017 draft, so it Shaq Mason Youth Jersey might be a long shot for Daniel to be picked next year because of his position. But with a strong senior season, he should have a great opportunity to get into a camp in 2018, and he could become the fourth UT punter in the league, joining Dustin and Britton Colquitt and Matt Darr.

Female politicians in Texas protest
Female Democratic lawmakers in http://www.outletcollectionsale.com Texas protested the passage of an anti-trans bill by using the bathroom for male representatives.
The Texas state legislature, which only actually meets for a few months every two years, is approaching the end of its session and has been wrangling over anti-LGBT legislation.
After support from the state's Governor and Liutenant Governor, the Texas House voted last night 91-50 to attach an anti-trans bathroom measure to an unrelated education law, Senate Bill 2078, in a bid to force it through before the deadline.
The vote was broadly along party lines http://www.authenticsportswearsale.com within the Republican-dominated chamber.
However, the Democratic women in the chamber protested beforehand… by using the bathroom for men's representatives.
The amendment, penned by Republican Rep. Chris Paddie, would ban transgender children from using gendered changing rooms or locker rooms other than those of their “biological sex”, or a “single-occupant facility”.
Paddie denied it was “discriminatory”.
He said: “It's absolutely about child safety… this is about accommodating all kids.”
But LGBT advocates say it's plain discrimination.
The Human Rights Campaign said: “Policies such as this one, which make classifications on the basis of “biological sex,” are designed to alienate transgender students from their peers.
“Research shows that anti-transgender Cheap Nike Air Max For Men legislation can lead to increased instances of bullying of LGBTQ students and even an uptick in suicide.
“With this move, the legislature continues to waste taxpayers' time and money while playing politics with people's lives by targeting LGBTQ people and, in particular, transgender children.”
JoDee Winterhof, HRC's senior vice president for policy and political affairs, added: “This shameful amendment is yet another example of Texas lawmakers' anti-LGBTQ agenda.
“Transgender youth deserve the same dignity and respect as their peers, and this craven attempt to use children as a pawn for cheap political points is disturbing and unconscionable.”
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa said: “Thousands of Texans have spoken out only to be ignored in sham hearings at the Capitol.
“Children spoke out about their fear of being bullied, transgender people fought for their rights, business leaders warned about the very real threat to our economy, and Republicans charged forward with their fingers jammed in their ears.
“Texas Republicans have talked about the end Cheap Air Max Men Shoes of civilization, because of bathroom boogeymen, if they don't pass their potty police bill.
“Our economy is slipping, college is out of reach, Texans need a raise, and school finance is broken, but today Texas Republicans spent Texans' tax dollars and precious time to debate bathrooms.”

ANALYSE: Goldman Sachs bemängelt Nike-Zahlen - Aktie aber günstig bewertet
NEW YORK (dpa-AFX) - http://www.sportschuheonlineshop.com Die jüngste Geschäftsentwicklung von Nike ist aus Sicht der US-Investmentbank Goldman Sachs nicht zufriedenstellend ausgefallen. Der US-Sportartikelkonzern habe enttäuschende Zahlen zum dritten Geschäftsquartal (per Ende Februar) geliefert und einen ebenso wenig begeisternden Ausblick auf das Schlussquartal gegeben, schrieb Analystin Lindsay Drucker Mann in einer Studie vom Mittwoch.
Die operative http://www.sportschuhebestellen.com Performance des Unternehmens habe einige ihrer Befürchtungen bestätigt, so die Analystin. Vor allem im wichtigen US-Markt scheine es für den Branchenprimus im Vergleich zu Wettbewerbern wie Adidas nicht so gut zu laufen. Da sich jedoch die Vertriebs- und Verwaltungskosten im abgelaufenen Quartal besser als erwartet entwickelt hätten, habe sie ihre Gewinnprognose (EPS) für das Geschäftsjahr 2016/17 erhöht.
Gleichzeitig hob die Expertin ihr Kursziel für Nike Air Max Damen Sale die Nike-Aktie von 61 auf 62 (Kurs: 54,42) US-Dollar an. Ihre Einstufung "Buy" beließ sie mit dem Hinweis, dass die Aktie wenig anspruchsvoll bewertet sei. Denn beim gegenwärtigen Aktienkurs sollten sämtliche Negativaspekte bereits eingepreist sein.
Bei Aktien mit der Einstufung "Buy" rechnet Goldman Sachs auf dem aktuellen Kursniveau sowie im Vergleich zu den anderen von der Nike Air Max 90 Herren Billig Bank beobachteten Unternehmen aus der gleichen Branche mit einem hohen Renditepotenzial./edh/tih/das

CBS Sports: Clay Matthews will be on the spot in 2017
Clay Matthews is still a key player on http://www.authenticpatriotsstore.com/shop-by-players-isa-abdulquddus-jersey-c-1_19.html the Green Bay Packers defense despite having an injury-riddled 2016 season. He missed four games because of a hamstring injury and he also suffered a shoulder injury the second half of the season which caused him see limited action.
Matthews did not need any surgery on his shoulder and he's close to 100 percent healthy. So the expectations for Matthews will be high, and CBS Sports seems to agree. Senior NFL writer Pete Prisco named the one player on the http://www.billsjerseysale.com/shop-by-players-marquise-goodwin-jersey-c-1_34.html spot for all 32 teams and Matthews was named for the Packers.
The Packers are now in the of
