I had Haskins ranked as my number one quarterback in this class, and up until a few weeks ago, I thought there was no way wed actually have a chance to draft him without moving up into the top 10. To sit tight at number 15 and draft Haskins is truly a dream come true.Now, onto the player...As you can already see, I absolutely love this pick. Haskins is a big, strong, accurate pocket passer who has a cannon for an arm, and the football acumen to become a top signal caller in this league for years to come. Accuracy:Arm Strength:Intelligence:Being able to stay put at number 15, and select who I feel was the best quarterback in this draft, was a huge win for the Redskins. Haskins may need some time to come in, learn the system, and get up to speed with an NFL playbook, but with Case Keenum here, hell have the luxury of not being rushed into action too early. Hes still a young guy https://www.theredskinslockerroom.com/authe...-haskins-jersey , and his ceiling is extremely high, so if it takes a full season to become the starter, fans should not panic. But, if he comes in, picks up the playbook in a hurry, and earns the starting nod, I will not be at all surprised. Overall, I give this pick an A+! Cam Sims led all Redskins receivers last preseason with 131 yards gained. He averaged 26.2 yards per reception which was tied for second most in the NFL among players with at least five receptions...."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Looks Like Someone Has A Sixpack Of The MondaysDaily SlopRedskins RecapsSims - The Forgotten RedskinNew,270commentsEDTShareTweetShareShareCam Sims - The Forgotten RedskinGeoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsCam Sims led all Redskins receivers last preseason with 131 yards gained. He averaged 26.2 yards per reception which was tied for second most in the NFL among players with at least five receptions. All the hard work he had put in during training camp had paid off. in 2018, Sims made the Redskins 53-man opening day roster. His spot on that roster however was very short-lived. On the opening kickoff of the Redskins first regular season game, Sims suffered a high ankle sprain that landed him on Injured Reserve. Despite returning to full health just over a month later, the rookie was not designated to return, and spent the rest of the season watching from the sideline as his position mates struggled through a disappointing season. Despite his potential, all the recent talk after the 2019 draft has been on new-comers Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon.But what about Cam Sims?Sims was a heralded high school recruit out of Louisiana who committed to the rival Crimson Tide. He never really made much of an impact in Tuscaloosa however, catching just 41 career passes for 467 yards and two touchdowns while battling injuries. He was not invited to attend the 2018 NFL Combine, so he had to impress scouts at Alabamas Pro Day - and impress them he did!In front of Redskins President Bruce Allen, and a contingent of team scouts Womens Dwayne Haskins Jersey , Sims measured in at 65 and 215 pounds. He then proceeded to run the 40 yard dash as low as 4.52 on some teams watches, while recording a vertical of 34 inches and a broad jump of 103. It was his on-field work, however, that impressed scouts the most, as the sticky-handed receiver caught everything thrown his way, and looked fluid and under control in his routes.Although his Pro Day was not enough to get him drafted, the Redskins saw enough to sign him as an undrafted free agent on May 3, 2018. Sims went on to have an excellent training camp, drawing rave reviews from head coach Jay Gruden and Doug Williams. Sims will be entering 2019 with a new group of receivers hell need to distinguish himself from. The teams top receiver over the last few seasons, Jamison Crowder, left via free agency. The Redskins used a third and sixth round pick in the 2019 NFL draft on Ohio States Terry McLaurin and N.C. States Kelvin Harmon. The two are expected to compete with incumbents Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson for starting spots.But dont count out Sims. The second year pro has the measurables, skill and attitude to steal a starting role as the teams X receiver. If he can develop chemistry with new quarterback Dwayne Haskins, and make plays like this, it will be hard to keep him off the field. Sims is also an excellent blocker and willing special teams players. Josh Doctson does neither, so Sims may have to really distinguish himself in these areas yet again if he hopes to have an impact in 2019.The Redskins are likely to carry six wide receivers on the 2019 roster. Will Sims be one of them?

Taking a look at the Pittsburgh Steelers salary cap situation in 2020 with Antonio Brown off the books." Latest NewsWith Antonio Brown off the 2020 books Womens Jerome Bettis Jersey , how are the Steelers financially?New,103commentsTaking a look at the Pittsburgh Steelers salary cap situation in 2020 with Antonio Brown off the books.EDTThe trade of Antonio Brown was a necessity that had horrendous salary cap ramifications for 2019, but at least the Pittsburgh Steelers will be off the hook for his 2020 salary. Which meant cap room to go on an offseason spending spree in March 2020, right? Wrong. Pittsburgh sits on $1 million, smallest amount in the NFL by $4 million, in cap space right now. That is not even enough to pay the 10 or 11 man practice squad. The figure would not be enough to cover the 52 and 53 players who are not counted against the cap as of now. Do not forget that the team generally carries over around $3.5 million to help cover in season expenses that may pop up. Players may be cut or traded while contract restructures could be in the works. Cap relief could also happen if a player such as Bud Dupree signs a long-term contract. Such a move would just shift cap space that is spoken for in 2019 and is not included in 2020. Spotrac projects the Steelers are $3 million over the cap for 2020 while accounting for $10 million in NFL salary cap growth. Will Pittsburgh shove some restructured money into 2020? The scenario seems all too realistic. An educated guess of $2-4 million pushing the Steelers over the cap by $5-7 million. The 2020 draft class will need to be accounted for. Before the trades in the 2018 draft, Pittsburgh would have a cap hit of $2.7 million after displacement. And then again the team needs to account for the 52 and 53 players and practice squad which a high-end total of $3 million is seeable. A conservative number would put the Steelers $10 million over the cap in 2020. Ten million is childs play for the Steelers to overcome but what will be tough is dealing with the teams free agents. Nose tackle Javon Hargrave Jerome Bettis Jersey , safety Sean Davis, Bud Dupree, and Joe Haden are all starters staring down 2020 with no contract. Five other players were on the Steelers 53-man roster in 2018 will also become unrestricted free agents. The team has eight players eligible for the expensive restricted free agent tag. Of those, cornerback Mike Hilton and right tackle Matt Feiler will have to prove their worth in 2019 to be tagged or offered contracts. What will the status of injured linebacker Ryan Shazier be? One player under contract for 2020 who could demand a new deal, would be superstar in the making, JuJu Smith-Schuster. If he even sniffs the 2018 production this season, he would have a strong case to be an $18 million per year wideout and not make his paltry $1 million base salary in 2020. Fans rejoiced when the Steelers parted ways with the distraction formerly known as AB and rejoiced at the 2020 cap savings. The issue was James Conner Jersey , fans were looking at 2020 from a distance and not getting up close and personal. Also, they were not taking into account the massive contract that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger would sign. (He has never taken a hometown discount or a cap friendly first year on his contracts.) What is your plan for the Steelers to squeeze cap space out before the start of the 2019 season? Who is in line for an extension, what will those extensions look like, and how are you going to pay for that in 2020? PITTSBURGH Mason Rudolph guided a long first-half touchdown drive to perhaps nudge ahead of Josh Dobbs in the race to be the backup behind Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 17-7 on Saturday night.Rudolph finished 10 of 15 for 77 yards while Dobbs completed 6 of 11 for 95 yards with a red-zone interception on a night the Steelers (2-0) opted to keep several key starters on the sideline, from quarterback Roethlisberger to Pro Bowl offensive linemen David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey to rookie linebacker Devin Bush.Kansas City coach Andy Reid suggested Patrick Mahomes would play most of the first half.Not quite.The reigning NFL MVP who directed a touchdown in his lone drive in Kansas Citys preseason opener last week did little during two series of work following a thunderstorm that forced the opening kickoff to be pushed back nearly an hour.Mahomes completed just 2 of 5 passes for 11 yards, a far cry from his previous visit to Heinz Field, when he threw for six touchdowns in a Week 2 win last September that served as a harbinger of the season to come.Mahomes best play during his cameo may have been his decision to slide during an 8-yard scramble https://www.thesteelerslockerroom.com/authe...-edmunds-jersey , something he didnt do a week ago when he lowered his shoulder against Cincinnati rather than step out of bounds.Chad Henne found Mecole Hardman for a 17-yard touchdown late in the first half for Kansas City (1-1), which managed a lone touchdown a week after putting up 38 against the Bengals. Hardman, a second-round pick, has two touchdowns in two weeks and his rapid emergence could give Reid another option to play with in what could be the NFLs most potent offense. the night off. Rudolph, a third-round pick a year ago who is hoping to supplant Dobbs as the top backup, was given the start instead. Playing with a group that included Pro Bowl running back James Conner and star wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, Rudolph struggled early to gain some momentum.It wasnt until Rudolph found himself playing with the reserves that he started to get going. He directed a 14-play Womens Terrell Edmunds Jersey , 89-yard drive in the second quarter, a series that ended with a 14-yard sprint to the end zone by Jaylen Samuels.Dobbs started off brilliantly, hitting Washington for a 40-yard gain. He couldnt sustain the momentum, thanks in part to an interception in the end in which he overthrew Diontae Johnson. The ball sailed into the arms of Kansas Citys Charvarius Ward to cut short a scoring chance late in the first half.Johnson, a third-round pick, ended up scoring in the fourth quarter when he made a diving grab in the end zone on a heave from fourth-stringer Devlin Hodges.THIS BUDS FOR YOU?Steelers outside linebacker Bud Dupree is entering the season with a significant amount of pressure after Pittsburgh opted to pick up his fifth-year option but have not approached him about signing a long-term deal. Dupree provided a spark, sacking Mahomes and Henne and knocking down a pass.HONORING DRAKEA difficult week that began with the sudden passing of wide receivers coach Darryl Drake at age 62 ended with the Steelers making sure Drakes legacy wont be forgotten.Coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert and their wives attended Drakes funeral in Gallatin Womens James Conner Jersey , Tennessee. The wide receivers took the field for warmups with shirts emblazoned with the phrase Shut out the noise, the credo Drake adopted for his group for the 2019 season.Dozens of Steelers knelt for a prayer shortly before kickoff and the team will wear DD stickers on their helmets this season and a moment of silence was held just before the national anthem.TRAINERS ROOMThe Chiefs didnt escape Heinz Field unscathed. Safety Tyrann Matthieu left with a shoulder injury. Wide receiver Deon Yelder went down with a knee injury and Marcus Kemp exited with a knee injury. Linebacker Breeland Speaks suffered a knee injury in the second half and did not return. Quarterback Chase Litton was taken out in the final seconds after taking a hard hit shortly after releasing a pass.UP NEXTChiefs: Host San Francisco next Saturday.Steelers: Expect to give Roethlisberger his only reps of the preseason next Sunday when they visit Tennessee.

Antonio Brown was traded from the Steelers to the Raiders in part because of his relationships with coaches and teammates in Pittsburgh. In Oakland https://www.raiderslockerroom.com/authentic...io-brown-jersey , his coach says hes not going to concern himself with that.Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Brown and Derek Carr will build a relationship in time, and Gruden isnt worried about it.Im not going to get into the relationship business, Gruden said. I think Brown is a great guy. I love having him here. Derek is a great guy. You cant rush a relationship. r two months. Its something that youve got to earn and youve got to really work and, and thats why its important that we spend time together. Im a little worn out with all the relationships and all the things that really dont matter right now.Brown declined to attend the start of Organized Team Activities in Oakland, which Gruden also said was not a problem. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The Oakland Raiders are in talks with the Giants about playing their home games next season at Oracle Park in San Francisco.A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Sunday night the two sides are in discussions, but no deal has been reached. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because nothing has been finalized.NBC Bay Area reported that an announcement of the Raiders plans to play in San Francisco will be made this week.The Raiders are looking for a home for 2019 after the city of Oakland sued the team and the NFL over the planned move to Las Vegas in 2020. The Raiders has no lease for 2019 and owner Mark Davis dropped out of negotiations with Oakland after the suit was filed in December.The Raiders were still considering Oakland Womens Derek Carr Jersey , as well as the possibility of sharing Levis Stadium with the San Francisco 49ers. A final decision is needed soon so the NFL can start making its 2019 schedule.I think the hope of Mark is to continue to be in the Bay Area with the Raiders fans, commissioner Roger Goodell said at a pre-Super Bowl news conference on Wednesday.The Raiders are still planning to practice at their facility in Alameda, making staying in the Bay Area the most logical choice.Davis has always been opposed to sharing the stadium with the 49ers and the legal wrangling with officials in Oakland have soured him on that option, leaving the Giants stadium in San Francisco as his possible preferred choice.But it doesnt come without hurdles as the 49ers hold territorial rights to the city and the Raiders would need NFL approval to move there. The stadium would also need some modifications to be able to host NFL games and there would be scheduling issues to work out with the Giants, who have home games scheduled on two of first four Sundays of the upcoming NFL season.The stadium has been used for college football games in the past. There have been several bowl games played there and California played its 2011 games there when Memorial Stadium was being renovated.

March 13 Joe Flacco Jersey White , but Joe Flacco is expected to move from Baltimore to Denver once trades can be completed.According to multiple reports, the Ravens are expected to get a mid-round pick back from the Broncos as compensation for the quarterback they moved to the bench in favor of rookie Lamar Jackson. The Broncos currently have nine 2019 picks, including two fourth-round selections and two fifth-round selections.Flaccos contract calls for him to make a salary of $18.5 million in 2019 and hes signed through 2021 with a total cap liability of $63 million once you remove the $16 million in dead cap space the Ravens will take on in the deal. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Flacco is expected to rework his deal with the Broncos.Finding out the exact pick heading back to Baltimore is only one of the questions left open by this deal. Theres also the matter of what the Broncos will do with Case Keenum and how Flaccos exit from the market affects other teams in the market for quarterback help this offseason, to name two things to watch over the next month.: Multiple reports indicate it will be one of the two fourth-round picks going to Baltimore. The Broncos have their pick along with the one they acquired from the Texans in the Demaryius Thomas trade. Denvers own pick is the 11th in the fourth round and the Texans pick is 12 selections further down the order.

WASHINGTON (AP)players just because theyve fallen out of playoff contention. Coach Jay Gruden said the team and training staff will evaluate injuries on a player-by-player basis. Four players missed Washingtons game at Dallas on Thursday night along with 15 already on injured reserve and several others who were listed as questionable. A 38-14 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night dropped the Redskins to 5-7 and crushed their slim playoff hopes. But that wont change the approach to injuries. I think if theyre good enough to go Adrian Peterson Jersey , they need to go, Gruden said on a conference call Friday. We obviously dont want to hurt anybodys future, if its a chance to injure themselves long term. But if its just a nagging ankle sprain or something like that where they just can play through it, then theyll play through it. Weve got to dress 46 guys out there, and well dress the healthiest guys we can. A couple of exceptions might be left tackle Trent Williams and tight end Jordan Reed, as each has missed time with significant injuries. Gruden said the team wants to get an idea of a timeline for Williams to return after the surgery he requires on his right knee. Williams has said he wants to play the final four games as quarterback Kirk Cousins primary pass protector regardless of the Redskins status. If hes good enough to finish the season, he will finish out the season, Gruden said. We need him, and Kirk needs him. Well go by what the doctors say and how Trent feels and make our decision with Trent. A similar conversation will occur about Reed, who has missed five consecutive games with a strained right hamstring. The Redskins have been juggling offensive linemen for much of the season and will likely do so again when they visit the Los Angeles Chargers on Dec. 10. Injuries to center Chase Roullier, guard Brandon Scherff, right tackle Morgan Moses and others all over the roster could benefit from extra time off after three games in 12 days. Gruden hopes Roullier, Moses and defensive linemen Matt Ioannidis and Terrell McClain should benefit from the break. And theyre not the only ones. Get people out of the building for a couple days to refresh, refocus and get ready for the fourth quarter of the season, Gruden said. Hopefully we will get some healthier guys, some refocused guys and finish this season strong. Moses aggravated his ankle injuries against the Cowboys, and Gruden said receiver Maurice Harris is in the NFLs concussion protocol. Washingtons linebacking corps is decimated without Will Compton and Mason Foster and with nagging injuries to Zach Brown and Martrell Spaight, something that has contributed to struggles on special teams as depth players have been pressed into bigger roles. One existing injury that bears watching is rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allens left foot, which was surgically repaired in October. Allen, a first-round pick, did some light running Monday and is eligible to return to practice next week, but that may now not happen. Hes a guy that we may not rush back, Gruden said. We may just want to get him fully healed before we even think about putting him out on the practice field. ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The Head Ball Coach is back, lighting up the scoreboard and selling the Alliance of American Football.And fans at least those in Orlando, Florida, who showed up in the rain for Steve Spurriers debut in the new league Saturday night are eager to buy.The 73-year-old coach returned to the sideline for the first time since abruptly walking away from the college game in 2015, bringing along an entertaining style of offense that didnt disappoint an announced crowd of 20,191 for the AAF opener between the Orlando Apollos and Atlanta Legends.With a 52-man roster featuring 29 players from nine Florida colleges Joe Theismann Jersey , theres a local feel to the Apollos for fans of the hometown team.It begins with Spurrier, who won the Heisman Trophy as a player at the University of Florida and later put together his best body of work as a coach at his alma mater, a mere 113 miles up the road in Gainesville.And, there was just enough razzle-dazzle and imaginative play-calling in the Apollos 40-6 victory over the Legends to remind the faithful, who can buy season tickets for as little as $75, of the good old days.I think the fans had a good time, said Spurrier, who improved to 6-0 in his first game with the six teams he coached. They saw enough good plays, especially after the first quarter.It was a long night for Atlanta, which took the field barely a month after the sudden departure of coach Brad Childress and just days after the team decided ex-NFL quarterback Michael Vick would no longer hold the title of Legends offensive coordinator.Were disappointed, Legends coach Kevin Coyle said.I think Atlantas a pretty good team. Time will tell if they are, Spurrier said. Time will tell if were any good. Its just one game.In the leagues other opener Saturday night, San Antonio topped San Diego 15-6.On Sunday, Memphis is at Birmingham, and Salt Lake at Arizona.Two hours before game-time between Orlando and Atlanta, traffic flowed freely and there were few visible signs that the league was about to make its debut at Spectrum Stadium on the campus of UCF, where the Apollos have chosen to play in a more intimate setting than the larger Citrus Bowl near downtown Orlando.In stark contrast to the thousands who tailgate in a festive atmosphere before UCF games in the fall, only a smattering of fans mingled in a plaza near the 44,000-seat stadium on a cloudy and windy evening.Rain sent some early arrivals scurrying for cover in concession areas beneath the stands and intermittent showers fell most of the night, contributing to some slipping and sliding and occasional sloppy play.The weather even forced Spurrier to don a baseball cap instead of his signature visor.I think the rain deterred the crowd a little bit, the coach said. But 20,000 is pretty good.This isnt the first time Spurrier has been part of a new league. His first head coaching job was a three-year stint in the mid-1980s with the USFLs Tampa Bay Bandits.He led Florida to a national championship in 1996, left the Gators five years later to coach the Washington Redskins for two seasons, then ended a long college career when he walked away from a decade-long stay at South Carolina six games into the 2015 season.He smiled when he was asked about being unbeaten in his first game with six different teams.Even won with the Redskins, he said, laughing. Thats not easy to do.FOX Fantasy AutoForm a Racing Team, Compete for PrizesPlay Now!

When you think about it, it has been a long time since there has even been a battle to be had along the formidable front that protects Ben Roethlisberger and opens holes for James Conner.But with the trade of Marcus Gilbert to the Arizona Cardinals for a 6th round draft pick, there is now a starting position up for grabs. Who will win it? It is between Matt Feiler, Chukwuma Okorafor and Jerald Hawkins.Feiler might be the leader in the clubhouse, considering he started in Gilberts stead last season, but Okorafor has come into the Steelers Organized Team Activities (OTAs) with a new look. In other words, he has lost some weight.Im down a little bit, Okorafor told Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, so I feel a little bit more fast.According to Adamski Diontae Johnson Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , Okorafor didnt divulge how much weight he lost, but wanted to drop around 10-15 pounds before the start of the season. Why did he lose weight?Just wanted to get a little quicker, Okorafor said.Feiler enters this competition with 10 starts under his belt, and Okorafor has one start under his belt from 2018. While the true competition wont begin until training camp in late July, Okorafor has been practicing at both left and right tackle throughout OTAs. While Okorafor doesnt have as much starting experience as Feiler, he does have experience as an extra tight end in heavy packages to help as a run blocker. Who wins this battle is anyones guess, but Okorafor seems determined to put his best foot forward in the competition. The underlying theme throughout this competition will be the ultimate quality of the competition. Feiler proved to be a solid backup, but will he keep that standard as a starter? Okorafor doesnt have much experience, is he ready for the huge step as a starting right tackle? Jerald Hawkins is the wild card in this whole scenario Diontae Johnson Jersey 2019 , and no one outside of the organization can really say how he will play after missing the entire 2018 season with a torn quadriceps.This camp battle will definitely be one to keep an eye on. NEW YORK (AP) For the past 2½ months, one thing has been clear in the NFL: Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are hard to stop.The Saints winning streak reached 10 games with their 31-17 victory over Atlanta on Thanksgiving night.The Saints will play their second consecutive Thursday night game when they open Week 13 by facing the Dallas Cowboys.And its not the least bit surprising that the surging Saints kept the No. 1 spot in the latest AP Pro32 poll. They received all 12 first-place votes and 384 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL.Right here, right now, Drew Brees is this years MVP in a very crowded field of contenders, Newsdays Bob Glauber said. At almost 40 years old, hes playing perhaps his best football, with 29 touchdown passes and just two interceptions.The leagues other 10-1 team, the Los Angeles Rams, stayed at No. 2 after its bye week. And the Kansas City Chiefs Diontae Johnson Jersey Youth , who also were on a bye last week, remained No. 3.Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are still No. 4 after disposing of the New York Jets 27-13.The only change in the top five was the Chicago Bears, who inched up a spot to No. 5 after topping the Lions 23-16 on Thanksgiving as backup quarterback Chase Daniel threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns in place of the injured Mitchell Trubisky.The Los Angeles Chargers jumped two places to No. 6 after dominating Arizona 45-10 as Philip Rivers tied the NFL mark for consecutive completions at 25 and the broke record for the most to start a game.And the Houston Texans, who have won eight in a row after a 0-3 start, remained No. 7 after topping the Tennessee Titans 34-17 on Monday night.The surging Texans honored late owner Bob McNair with an eighth consecutive victory behind a powerful ground game and the usual stingy defense, said Ira Kaufman of Fox 13 in Tampa, Florida.The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped three spots to No. 8 after their 24-17 loss at Denver.Big Ben blows the game in Denver, Fox Sports John Czarnecki said of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for 462 yards but had two interceptions and now has 12 for the season.They will look to rebound Sunday night when they host the Chargers Justin Layne Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , who are expected to be without running back Melvin Gordon, who sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee during the rout of the Cardinals.The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks, who are both in contention for wild-card spots in the NFC, each moved up a spot to Nos. 9 and 10.Among the teams making the biggest drop was the Cincinnati Bengals, who plummeted five spots to No. 24. They have lost five of six after a 4-1 start and will finish the season without quarterback Andy Dalton, who went on injured reserve with a thumb injury to his throwing hand.The record may not show it, but this could very well be the NFLs worst team by years end, said Alex Marvez of Sirius XM.

But what does it mean for 2019?Raiders vs. Rams: 4 Winners, 4 Losers This game was a tough one to stomach. After leading 13-10 at the half, the Raiders completely laid an egg in the second half to lose 33-13. Its clear the Rams are the class of the league and nobody should have expected a win, but to see them collapse the way they did was disheartening.Theres plenty of blame to go around, but lets give some credit first. WINNERS1) Rams offensive lineOne of the key secrets to the Rams success is that they quietly have one of the best offensive lines in football. Tonight they were able to open up just enough holes in the run game that Todd Gurley could keep the Raiders defense off balance, and they gave Jared Goff all day to throw. The Raiders had no pass rush whatsoever, and only one sack. Would Khalil Mack have helped? Personally, I doubt it. We already saw Andrew Whitworth shut him down a few years ago with the Bengals, and tonight wouldnt have gone any differently. This unit is on another level.2) Jared CookCook had a spectacular game as the Raiders only real weapon in the passing game. He caught nine passes for 180 yards which is pretty close to the Raiders all time record for receiving yards in a single game by a tight end. The Rams had no answer for Cook tonight and he looks to be a major part of the offense moving forward.3) Brandin CooksWhy on Earth did the Patriots let this guy go? For that matter, why did the Saints? Cooks was absolutely uncoverable tonight, displaying speed and hands and the ability to exploit zone coverage. Sammy Watkins was inconsistent but this guy could be the one who makes the Rams even more explosive, and thats a scary thought.4) Rams coaching staffAfter being thoroughly outcoached by Jon Gruden and company in the first half Willie Brown Jersey , Sean McVay and Wade Phillips made the necessary halftime adjustments to fight their way back. Phillips defense showed its teeth and even though they only sacked Derek Carr once, the constant pressure was enough to stall multiple Raiders drives. Phillips is one of the best defensive coordinators of all time and he showed it tonight.LOSERS1) Derek CarrHoly Toledo, that was a bad performance. Carr threw for 303 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions, one of which was a pick-six to Marcus Peters. Carrs second pick was a completely inexcusable throw which was lobbed into the sky and landed right in the waiting hands of Rams LB Cory Littleton. The first was Carr trying one too many times to hit Jared Cook, and underthrowing the ball by a full two yards in the end zone. Each throw was awful in its own way. Carrs total reluctance to throw deep might have been part of the game plan, but it looked like he was just rattled. I feel like Grudens offensive game plan could have succeeded if Carr had made the correct throws and not made critical errors. Carr has always had his detractors, and this game will simply add more fuel to that fire. Carr is getting paid like a franchise quarterback, but he hasnt looked like one since the Chiefs game last October. The team is on his shoulders now, it goes as he goes. If he is going to play like this, the team will go nowhere but the top of the draft again.2) Raiders defensive lineChalk this one up as a learning experience for this very young positional group. Tank Carradine was inactive for some reason, leaving Fadol Brown and Shilique Calhoun backing up Frostee Rucker at defensive end opposite Bruce Irvin. While the Raiders rookie trio of PJ Hall, Maurice Hurst and Arden Key are talented, they are still rookies and were treated as such today. The Rams offensive line is full of veteran studs. The youngsters did nothing today, but theyll be chomping at the bit to feast on Denvers line next week.3) Raiders safetiesMarcus Gilchrist and Reggie Nelson started at safety for Oakland tonight, and neither were particularly good. Nelsons coverage strategy of diving and grabbing at air was especially ineffective, and its only due to the fact that Jared Goff constantly overshot his deep passes that the secondary didnt look worse. Rashaan Melvin and Gareon Conley played just fine, and Conley remains a stud when healthy, but where is Karl Joseph, and how is he not better than these two?4) Matt StaffordIf you think Derek Carr had a bad day, go look at Matt Staffords line. If theres two teams that live and die with their quarterback more than the Raiders, its the Packers and Lions. The Packers game was an example of a quarterback dragging his team to victory, while the Lions game was an example of a quarterback dragging his team to the bottom of the ocean. Stafford went 24/46 for 286 yards, a touchdown and FOUR picks, including one that was returned for a touchdown by the Jets of all teams. Stafford was outshined by rookie Sam Darnold, who led his team to the 48-17 win and threw two touchdowns after his first pass as a pro was picked and returned for a TD as well.

Here is what is going on today." Denver Broncos Training CampBroncos training camp: Day 6 live updatesNew Shane Ray Jersey ,56commentsThe Denver Broncos are back at it with their sixth training camp practice session. Here is what is going on today.MDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:Broncos training camp: Day 6 live updatesTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailThe Denver Broncos had a day off yesterday and will have their first late practice session of training camp for Day 6. The Broncos training camp schedule has the team starting practice at 2:00 p.m. Mile High time today and ending at 4:45 p.m.The players had a day off on Tuesday, Head Coach Vic Fangio and his staff did not. Well work a normal day tomorrow, Fangio said on Monday. Well work the rest of today obviously. We still have meetings with the players this afternoon and well work a normal day tomorrow, come in early and work up until dinner.One thing people have noticed from Broncos training camp so far is that Fangio likes to hold a longer practice than the previous regime. He was asked about that on Monday also and his answer was interesting. I just think guys have to practice, Fangio said. The only way you get better is to practice and get more reps. One thing you all need to keep in mind is there are 90 guys out there. Although were out there a long time, theres nobody getting more than maybe a third of the reps, so individually its not that long other than being out there.Stay tuned to Mile High Report as Broncos camp continues.Day 6 Recap Past MHR polls have shown that Flacco was literally the last QB fans wanted.

Since its now a reality, what can he do to truly become a Bronco?MSTShareTweetShareShareJoe Flacco has a long road to winning our heartsAnother week, another bombshell report regarding the Denver Broncos. Joe Flacco will be the next Broncos QB as Denver traded a fourth-round pick in the 2019 draft to bring in the veteran - Super Bowl MVP Quarterback. I imagine that like for most fans, its been an emotional journey over the last six days. My initial reaction was shock and disgust. I had just tweeted that the one thing I have learned in my three months of podcasting and writing for Mile High Report, is that Broncos fans hate Joe Flacco. Minutes later it was reported that the Broncos had traded for the aforementioned QB. In previous posts, Ive attached polls that asked fans who they would most like to see as the 2019 QB in Denver. The options always included Keenum, Flacco, a rookie and often someone else like Teddy Bridgewater or Nick Foles. Though the results were wildly varying Justin Hollins Denver Broncos Jersey , one things was not - Joe Flacco always received the lowest percentage of votes. When I say lowest, I dont mean by a few percentage points. I mean he was 20 or 30 percent behind the second-to-last vote-getter every single time. It got to such an extreme that I posted a poll on Twitter asking Broncos Country if it would rather Joe Flacco, Uncle Rico or Tim Tebow as the next Denver QB. Flacco lost. Does this mean that he wont be an upgrade over Case Keenum? No, as has been covered extensively and fantastically by the MHR staff, he absolutely should be an upgrade over Keenum. But its like saying a Chicken Pox is a vast deal better than Smallpox. Its true, but they both are not something that we should really desire to experience. As my emotions cooled, however, I started to lean toward feeling OK with the idea. The staff of MHR was hugely split on the topic but there seemed to at least be a consensus that it was a step up rather than down. Hes a former Super Bowl MVP, has 10 postseason road victories, big arm, tall pocket passer, etc. My feelings were generally optimistic from Thursday until Sunday.But as time progressed and the idea had even more time to wiggle its way into the depths of my conscious and subconscious mind, I began to again experience the yuck feelings. Hadnt Vic Fangio just said that this team wasnt going to put Band-Aids鈩?over big problems? They were going to do it the right way? Isnt this a team that has maybe one returning player on the O-line and thats the wildly unreliable Garrett Bolles? The team needs at least one ILB, one CB, one TE, one WR Justin Hollins Denver Broncos Jersey , two edge rushers and one DT to even begin to rebuild. Now Elway goes and gets a win now QB, and if they are unable to trade Keenum, will end up paying around $25 million for one position that will be filled by a guy who hasnt seen success in over five years. Yikes. I have zero doubt that this isnt the last up or down of my emotional roller coaster regarding the situation of the team, and if the Broncos can trade Keenum, bring in a top ILB, CB and solid O-line either through draft or free-agency then I will be happy. If not, we are in for another few years of meh football and a team that will likely live around .500 and waste away seasons because Elway is not someone who rebuilds.Check out the podcast (linked above) for much more on the topic and a fantastic segment by the Skipper dude about the importance of heroism in sports.

ENGLEWOOD Gardner Minshew II Jersey , Colo. (AP) Broncos who also served stints as general manager for the Cleveland Browns and the Philadelphia Eagles, has died following a long illness, the Broncos said. He was 51.Heckert stepped away from the Broncos after last season after being diagnosed in recent years with amyloidosis, a rare disease that causes a buildup of amyloid proteins in the heart, kidney, liver and other organs. He died Sunday night.Heckert spent 27 years in the NFL Christian Wilkins Jersey , including the last five in the Broncos personnel department. He was the teams director of pro personnel from 2013-16 before becoming senior personnel adviser in 2017.Tom was an integral part of our organization and were all incredibly saddened today, general manager John Elway said in a statement. With his many years of experience and time as a GM, Tom was a tremendous resource and a key member of our team. He was a very good evaluator. He had an eye for talent, and we always trusted his voice.Before coming to Denver, Heckert was the general manager for the Browns (2010-12) and the Eagles (2006-09).We are saddened to learn of Tom Heckerts passing, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement. Tom gave everything he had to this organization for nine seasons and played a major role in the construction and success of our team during that time. In addition to being a talented evaluator and respected voice, he was a mentor and friend to so many within our organization and around the league. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and worked with him and our hearts go out to his family during this difficult time.The Eagles went to the playoffs seven times in Heckerts nine seasons in Philadelphia Michael Deiter Jersey , winning five NFC East titles, making five appearances in the conference championship and reaching one Super Bowl.Tom came to Philly in 2001 and made an instant impact on and off the field, Eagles GM Howie Roseman said in a statement. He hired great people and his legacy is seen throughout the league in high-ranking front office positions and how many people today are talking about him and telling Heckert stories.He took the time to help all of us get better and learn more about how to evaluate and build teams. His record as a GM was outstanding. When he worked here everyone wanted to be around him and listen to his stories about his time in the league and his experiences around the game. He was one of the first people to congratulate us all when we won the Super Bowl. Thoughts and prayers are with his family, including his kids.Heckert began his NFL career in 1991 as a scout with the Miami Dolphins, who promoted him to assistant director of pro personnel/college scout in 1999 and director of pro personnel in 2000. He was hired by the Eagles as their player personnel director in 2001 and was promoted to vice president of player personnel in 2003.His father, Tom Sr., worked for more than 20 years as an NFL player personnel executive before retiring in 2007.His time in Denver included three playoff trips Daniel Jones Jersey , two Super Bowl appearances and a win over Carolina in Super Bowl 50.Its easy to see why Tom was widely respected and had so many great relationships across the league, Elway said. Ill always be grateful for how he helped me transition into this position. My prayers go out to Toms family, friends and everyone he worked with during his career.Matt Russell, the Broncos director of player personnel, worked with Heckert in Philadelphia and Denver.Tom was one of the best because he combined exceptional player evaluation skills with his incredible network of connections around the NFL, Russell said. Those relationships he formed are a testament to how well he treated everyone. Tom was a loyal friend and my heart goes out to his family.The Browns also released a statement expressing the organizations sympathy: We are deeply saddened by the passing of Tom Heckert and share our sincerest condolences with his family and friends, including the many lives he impacted with the Browns organization and throughout the entire NFL during his established career. More than a year after he pleaded guilty to insider trading Dexter Lawrence Jersey , Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks has still not been sentenced, and he wont be sentenced any time soon.Kendricks sentencing, which has already been delayed for nine months, was delayed again and is now scheduled for November 21, according to multiple reports.The Browns released Kendricks last year after the insider trading charge, and the Seahawks signed him. He was suspended for eight games last season but was a starter in Seattle when available, and he started on Sunday as well. The continuing delays may allow him to finish the season before serving any prison time.The charge Kendricks pleaded guilty to carries a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison Deandre Baker Jersey , but he is reportedly expected to get much less than that because he has cooperated with the investigation into his co-defendant, Damilare Sonoiki.

BATAVIA http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/...ersey-authentic , N.Y. (AP) The NFL Commissioner on Monday reiterated his stance of wanting to reduce the preseason schedule at a time the league and players association have begun preliminary talks on a new collective bargaining agreement.I feel what we should be doing is always to the highest quality, and Im not sure preseason games meet that level right now, Goodell said, while participating in Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kellys 33rd charity golf tournament outside of Buffalo, New York.Im not sure, talking with coaches, that four preseason games is necessary any more to get ready for a season to evaluate players, develop players Zach Gentry Jersey , he added. There are other ways of doing that, and weve had a lot of discussions about that.The NFL has long backed reducing the preseason schedule in exchange for expanding the regular season to as many as 18 games. Players have balked at the proposal by citing safety issues and a desire to receive additional compensation for playing a longer regular season.Without revealing any details, Goodell called it the best sign the league and union have already had discussions some 21 months before the CBA expires following the 2020 season.In touching on several other topics, Goodell said the NFL has scheduled a series of conference calls with coaches this week to go over a proposal to expand replay reviews and allow them to challenge pass-interference calls in the final two minutes.Goodell backed a decision made at the owners meeting last month to table a proposal to change the overtime rule and require each team to have one possession regardless of what happens on the opening OT series.I dont know if Id go for the fair possession, Goodell said noting he likes the sudden-death nature of the current rule in which the game ends if a team scores a touchdown on its opening possession.The change was pushed by the Chiefs. Kansas City lost last seasons AFC championship game without getting the ball in overtime because the New England Patriots won the toss, received the kickoff and scored a touchdown.If you get the football to start the overtime period and you drive all the way down and score a touchdown, most coaches say, Hey L.J. Collier Jersey , we deserved to lose. We didnt stop them. Thats part of football, he said.Goodell also reiterated the leagues preference in pushing for the Bills to build a new stadium to replace their existing facility, which was built in 1973. He said new stadiums play a key role in ensuring franchise stability by continuing to attract fans, who expect more modern amenities due to technological advancements made over the past two decades.The Bills are six months into conducting a feasibility study on whether to build a new stadium downtown or remain at their existing site in Orchard Park, New York.I think theyre doing the work and talking about what it takes and what they need because each one of these, theres no secret sauce, Goodell said.What works in Dallas doesnt work in Buffalo necessarily, he added. The reason why Im supportive is I want to make sure this franchise remains stable here http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/...ersey-authentic , and continues and remains competitive. I think its great for this community.Responding to Goodells comments, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz issued a statement revealing the county and team have had preliminary discussions regarding the future of the Bills home. The county holds the lease on New Era Field, and also provides the team annual funding for operational and capital costs.Though negotiations wont begin until the feasibility study is completed, Poloncarz for the first time didnt rule out construction of a new stadium by writing all options are on the table.A New York State-funded study in 2014 projected the next round of renovations at New Era Field would cost $540 million, including structural improvements and rebuilding the stadiums third deck. A new facility would cost almost double, depending on location, whether it features a roof, and how much infrastructure upgrades expanded roads D.K. Metcalf Jersey , access ramps, public transportation might be necessary.The Bills study will also consider how much public funding might be required.Kelly, who played his 11-year career with the Bills before retiring after the 1996 season, expressed a strong preference to have the Bills continue playing in Orchard Park, even if it means building a new facility across the street.I cant see one downtown. I just think its just too much. But you never know, Kelly said, noting he lives a five-minute drive from New Era Field. I love where were at. I dont think we need one right away. But Im not the owner. Im not the commissioner. I dont make those decisions. Robert Griffin III suited up for practice on Sunday, but the fractured right thumb he suffered in Saturdays practice left him unable to throw any passes during the session.Given the responsibilities of the quarterback position http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/...ersey-authentic , the multi-week time frame given for Griffins thumb to return to health and the fact that Trace McSorley is the only other quarterback behind Lamar Jackson, it is no surprise that the Ravens are in the market for another quarterback. Coach John Harbaugh said that need will be filled before the teams next practice on Wednesday.Definitely, Harbaugh said at a press conference. Well have one here for sure.The team is working out journeyman Josh Johnson, who has played for offensive coordinator Greg Roman and for the Ravens in his 10 stops around the league. The lack of similar reports about other players would seem to make Johnson a favorite to land a spot on Baltimores roster.

GREEN BAY http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/auth...mith-jr.-jersey , Wis. �? as interim head coach is rubbing off on the Green Bay Packers.Winning helps reinforce the message.The Packers are 2-1 under Philbin going into their season finale against the Detroit Lions, who have stumbled to the finish line having lost seven of their past nine games.More Packers coverage from FOX Sports WisconsinBucks�? Wes Matthews loves Wisconsin, is a Vikings fanPreview: Packers look to slow Vikings revitalized run gameTop Tweets: Yelich thanks fans for support after season-ending injuryAmos sparks rebuilt Packers defense in debutPackers to be tested again by familiar foe in Zimmer, VikingsCoach Matt Patricias job seems safe, though his first year in the Motor City has definitely been disappointing. With the playoffs out of sight for each team, the Lions and Packers go into their game at Lambeau Field hoping to ride a win into the offseason.The time is right now, Patricia said. Thats the great part about it, is the time is right now to go out and improve and get better, and thats what we have to do.Except that any improvement cant help Detroit in the standings this year. The Lions (5-10) were assured of their first last-place finish since 2012 following a 27-9 loss to Minnesota last week.After firing Jim Caldwell following a 9-7 record last year, Detroit will finish with a worse record than in any of Caldwells four years leading the club.Asked this week if he was told by team management if he would return in 2019, Patricia said that he was pretty confident. Everything for me right now is just keep moving forward and getting ready for the game this weekend.While the Packers (6-8-1) are assured of a second straight losing season, they at least seem to be rejuvenated since Philbin was promoted from offensive coordinator to interim head coach following the firing of Mike McCarthy.A 44-38 win in overtime over the New York Jets finally got the Packers their only road victory of the season. Players have spoken of their respect for Philbin and their desire to win for him.Its relatable messages, its talking about his family and talking about things that are important to him Alexander Mattison Jersey , quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. And then little nuggets that we can take with us. Easy connection points, I guess is the best way to put it.Rodgers has known Philbin for a while, going back to the 2010 season when the Packers won the Super Bowl with McCarthy as coach and Philbin in his first stint as offensive coordinator.Philbin has also won over Davante Adams, who was drafted in 2014 and only started working with Philbin this year.So I think that he kind of has his head in the right spot, and hes really easy to follow, because you know what youre going to get every day, Adams said. You know, he makes it clear what he expects from you. Thats why Im a big Joe advocate.Another win could improve Philbins case to stay on after this season. Team president Mark Murphy has said that he wants to get a chance to see how Philbin fared over the final four games as Green Bay proceeded with its coaching search.Other notes and things to watch:RECORD WATCHWith 111 catches, Adams is two shy of breaking the club record set by Sterling Sharpe in 1993. Hes also 134 yards shy of breaking the single-season mark set by Jordy Nelson (1,519) in 2014. He said that he was optimistic that he would play after missing practice at midweek with a knee injury.7<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:Upon Further Review: Packers at JetsAP |THE END?Lions safety Glover Quin may be playing in his last NFL game at Green Bay. Quin, who turns 33 next month and has one year left on his contract, insisted he has not decided whether he wants to play next season. He considered retiring after last season.Quin has started 147 straight games, the longest active streak by an NFL safety. Houston drafted Quin in the fourth round in 2009 out of New Mexico and he signed with the Lions in 2013. Over the past six seasons, he is the leagues only player with at least 400 tackles http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/auth...ru-samia-jersey , 15 interceptions, 10 tackles for losses and five forced fumbles.LAMBEAU FINALES?Linebacker Clay Matthews missed practice at midweek with a back injury, while receiver Randall Cobb sat out while in the concussion protocol. Both veterans are free agents after this season, meaning they could be playing their last games at Lambeau as Packers �? if theyre healthy enough to play at all. The coaching change leaves an extra layer of uncertainty to the offseason.SILVER LININGDetroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay made the most of the increased opportunities he had when Golden Tate was traded and when Marvin Jones was injured. Golladay, the second-year, third-round pick from Northern Illinois, had 70 receptions for 1,063 yards and five touchdowns after making 48 catches for 477 yards and three scores as a rookie. Eight percent of his catches gave Detroit first downs, trailing only Tampa Bays Chris Godwin in the category.GOING STREAKINGThe Lions are going for their first four-game winning streak in the series against the Packers since the 1982-83 seasons.

With 3,511 yards passing, QB Matthew Stafford in danger of falling short of 4,000-yard mark on season for first time since 2010 (535), when he was limited to three games because of injury. Stafford with 32 career TD passes against Packers, three short of breaking Johnny Unitas record of most against Green Bay. WR Kenny Golladay one of four players in league to catch at least 70 passes Ed Oliver Jersey , average 15.0 yards per reception and score five TDs. RB LeGarrette Blounts 56 career rushing TDs are most by any Oregon alumni. S Glover Quins 74 career tackles against Green Bay second among active players behind Vikings S Harrison Smith (76). Packers finishing with sub-.500 record for second straight season. QB Aaron Rodgers only player in NFL history with at least 400 yards passing, two touchdown passes and two rushing scores in a game, accomplishing feat twice: last week against Jets and 2011 against Denver. Packers 3-0 when Rodgers starts in Week 17 against Lions. WR Davante Adams has 111 catches, two shy of breaking Sterling Sharpes single-season franchise record (112 in 1993). Adams needs 134 yards to break former teammate Jordy Nelson single-season yardage record (1,519 in 2014). WR Randall Cobb, who was in concussion protocol at midweek, is a free agent after season. LB Blake Martinez second in NFL with 132 tackles. Fantasy tip: Packers RB Jamaal Williams coming off career-high 156 scrimmage yards and rushing TD last week against Jets. He had all 15 carries from Packers RBs with leading rusher Aaron Jones out with knee injury. Antonio Brown had many suitors. Or at least more than one.Seahawks coach Pete Carroll admitted during a Monday interview with 710 ESPN in Seattle that the Seahawks were among the franchises vying for the receivers services after he was released by the Raiders on Saturday.We were involved with that one, yeah, Carroll said.Its no surprise, given that the Seahawks lost Doug Baldwin to retirement and, at least for the short term, promising youngster David Moore. Brown would give the Seahawks a level of talent at the position that they simply havent had under Carroll and havent had at all since Joey Galloway.But it wasnt to be. So if/when the Seahawks and Patriots end up in the Super Bowl again, Carroll and company will have to deal with a wideout far better than any of the wideouts Seattles had to defend when they met five years ago.

EAGAN http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-aut...b-mcgary-jersey , Minn. Vikings for the first time in almost six weeks, a significant point of progress in returning to his spot at right defensive end and re-establishing his pass-rushing and run-stopping skills in a game setting for the NFC North leaders.The first and most important step, though, was acknowledging his need for mental health treatment in the tough-guy environment of football that has long fostered a mindset of powering through a problem.More Vikings coveragePhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 7/27/19Rookie Bradbury is central figure to Vikings overhauled offensive lineVikings depth at cornerback being tested, Hughes still not clearedPlayers to watch at Minnesota Vikings 2019 training campTop Tweets: Vikings WR Diggs makes push for All-NFL Style TeamSometimes youve just got to put your pride aside and know when enough is enough. Sometimes youve got to take it upon yourself and know when enough is enough and when you cant handle it, Griffen said.Griffen was a full participant in the workout on Wednesday afternoon, but coach Mike Zimmer said the decision about whether hed play for the Vikings (4-2-1) on Sunday night against New Orleans would be made at the end of the week. Stephen Weatherly has started in Griffens place at right end for the past five games.I feel good. I was able to work out and do the things I have to do, but playing this game of football, it requires more than just working out, Griffen said. Youve got to push somebody, hit somebody, get your timing back.Though Griffens reintegration with the defense will be gradual, his welcome by the team was not.It felt great to see my guys, man. I love each and every one of my teammates, and it was just good to see the smiles on their face, said Griffen, who was taken by ambulance to a hospital on Sept. 22 after a scary series of incidents around the Twin Cities when he threatened violence in a hotel lobby and made repeated comments about people trying to kill him.I had a lot of support from my family, the Minnesota Vikings, the doctors, my teammates, the fans Kendall Sheffield Jersey , and you know I want to give my apologizes to people I impacted. Im sorry if I affected them in any type of way, Griffen said.7<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:Upon Further Review: Vikings at JetsNoah K. Murray | USA TODAY SportsIm just excited to get back here with my team and get back to the grind of things. Its been hard to be away, but Im happy to be back. Its a good feeling right now, and Im taking one day at a time and one thing at a time to get things back on track.Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the organization was in communication with Griffens medical team throughout his hiatus, relying on the professional recommendations regarding his return.This is an illness, Zimmer said, and hes done a good job of helping to get better and continues to try to get better. He is probably going to have to continue to do that, just like we all have to do in life.Griffen politely declined to discuss in detail his treatment plan or specific issues, but said hed do so in the future to use his public platform as way to positively influence the millions of Americans who struggle with some form of mental illness.You need to ask for help. You need to go out there and find a good support team and do the right things to be able to take care of yourself, Griffen said.Seeking and maintaining a work-life balance was a daily goal that Griffen frequently mentioned during a 10-minute session with reporters, his first such appearance since playing at Green Bay on Sept. 16 in the second game of the season.I learned a lot about the man outside of football. I had a lot of time to reflect on my life and where I want to go and the decisions I made, he said.Make no mistake, though: Being back in the meeting rooms and on the practice field with the Vikings was a cathartic experience.It was awesome, man. Just getting back to life in general, driving my car, doing all the little things, Griffen said. Youve got to appreciate the little things in life. The doors opened briefly and closed a few seconds later, but the glimpse into Jacksonvilles locker room told the story of the teams third consecutive loss.Calais Campbell was holding back fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, a carry-over from the screaming, shouting and finger pointing that ensued after a 20-7 loss to AFC South rival Houston (4-3) on Sunday.You all walk in here, you all see how it is in here http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-aut...cominsky-jersey , you all see how we vibe with each other, you all see how we vibe toward the coaches, you all see how it is, cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. It is no secret whats going on here right now. Aint nobody going to say it because we cant. But it aint no secret whats going on and it aint right right now.Ngakoue declined comment, as did safety Tashaun Gipson and cornerback A.J. Bouye.Their silence spoke volumes for a team that appears to be in upheaval following a third straight lopsided loss that has seemingly derailed a season that started with Super Bowl expectations.I dont speak on locker room business, linebacker Telvin Smith said. Dont ask me locker room questions.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars will be without starting CB A.J. Bouye, WR Marqise Lee against TexansJaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue, LT Cam Robinson out against Texans SundayJaguars lose QB Nick Foles for at least 2 months in discouraging season openerJaguars acquire QB Josh Dobbs intrade with Steelers for 2020 5th-round draft pickInjuries hurt Jaguars as they fall to Chiefs 40-26 in Week 1The Jaguars (3-4) looked slightly more composed on the field, although the result was similar to road losses against Kansas City and Dallas.Jacksonville failed to score in the first half for the third consecutive game �? the first time thats happened in franchise history �? and the defense allowed 141 yards rushing and sacked Deshaun Watson once.Blake Bortles fumbled on the third play of each half, leading to 10 points and his benching.Coach Doug Marrone said Bortles was upset with getting yanked after the second turnover �? his eighth in the last three games.Weve got to do something, Marrone said. Like I said before, the one thing you do with that position, doesnt matter the name, doesnt matter who it is. When you make a move to get a spark, everyone goes on notice. Everyone.Cody Kessler replaced Bortles in the third quarter and threw a touchdown pass that energized the home crowd. But Kessler also fumbled on a sack and threw an interception off T.J. Yeldons hands with a little more than five minutes remaining.Marrone confirmed afterward that the quarterback job is up for grabs as Jacksonville prepares to play Philadelphia in a home game in London next week.Its open, Marrone said. Whos the starter at right tackle? Whos the starter at center? Whos the starter at receiver? Whos the starter? Everything is open. Weve lost three straight games and we cant stop shooting ourselves in the foot for lack of a better expression.Weve got to do something, but the first thing weve got to do is stop turning the damn ball over. Period. That would be the positive of how we can build.The Jaguars are minus-12 in turnover differential on the season, including minus-8 during the three-game losing streak.Most of the problems stem from an offense thats missing its top two left tackles, its top two tight ends, two of its top three running backs, and its leading receiver from 2017. But the defense has failed to pick up the slack.Were a team Qadree Ollison Jersey , Smith said. Im not going to point fingers. Ill just keep the one pointed at myself, continue to make sure that I get better, continue to make sure I bring my energy, continue to make sure I bring my effort, my mentality to this team. I think the guys that continue to feed off it and grow from it.Thats one thing we cannot do is point fingers, and I ask you all, dont ask us to point fingers.Campbell holding back Ngakoue in a combustible locker room showed its already happening privately.Frustrations a part of the game, and were emotional people and this is an emotional game, Campbell said. At the same time, I think these guys, this group of guys, we have a different kind of heart to us. At the same time, losing sucks, you know, especially losing three in a row. Stacking losses, thats not who we are, thats not what we want to be.But it is who we are cause thats whats going on right now. I do believe that we will get it fixed. We have no choice but to get it fixed.

NASHVILLE Oshane Ximines Jersey , Tenn. (AP)won the franchises first playoff game in 14 years and reached the divisional round for the first time since 2008. Being embarrassed by the Patriots 35-14 has only reminded the Titans of how big a gap remains. We have a lot of work to do if we want to take the next step, coach Mike Mularkey said Sunday. Mularkey took a team that finished 3-13 for the No. 1 pick in the draft just two seasons ago to back-to-back 9-7 seasons and a 22-21 wild-card win in Kansas City before the ugly loss in New England on Saturday night. Yet a statement from the teams controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk a week ago has not ended speculation over Mularkeys job security. The coach said Sunday he has spoken with Strunk about the season and the future. He would not discuss if they talked about an extension with 2018 the last year on his contract, but he anticipates no changes on his coaching staff. Were moving forward full speed ahead, Mularkey said. Mularkey also defended his offensive coordinator, saying Terry Robiskie did a very good job. Mularkey also says hes happy with the development of his quarterback Marcus Mariota. Mularkey says inconsistency was his offenses biggest issue, and he believes Mariota will benefit from an offseason focused on football and not recovering from an injury. Mariota finished the season on the field for the first time in his three seasons in the NFL, but he was limited after straining a quadriceps muscle early against the Patriots. He threw four touchdown passes with only one interception in the playoffs after throwing more interceptions (15) than TDs (13) in the regular season. Here are some things to watch from the Titans this offseason: WHITHER DICK LEBEAU The defensive coordinator turned 80 in September and has been on a year-to-year basis with the Titans. Mularkey hasnt talked to LeBeau yet. If he returns for the 2018 season, it would be LeBeaus 60th season in the NFL as a player and coach overall. The Titans led the AFC and ranked fourth in the league in rushing defense and fifth with 43 sacks in the regular season. But the Titans finished 17th in points allowed per game and 25th against the pass after adding two new starters to the secondary in cornerback Logan Ryan and safety Johnathan Cyprien. HENRYS TIME? DeMarco Murray, the three-time Pro Bowl running back, finished with the worst season of his career with 659 rushing yards. He missed the final three games with an injured right knee. Murray, who turns 30 on Feb. 12, still has two years left on the deal the Titans reworked when trading for the running back in March 2016. But Murray is due $6.25 million in 2018. Derrick Henry Julian Love Jersey , the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner, struggled running in two of his three starts without Murray. But he ran for a career-high 156 yards in the Titans comeback win in Kansas City , and Henry still has two years left on his rookie contract. RECEIVER ISSUES The Titans invested heavily in the draft trying to give Mariota help. But Corey Davis, the fifth pick overall out of Western Michigan, didnt catch his first TD pass until the playoff loss to the Patriots after injuries cost him significant practice time. Mularkey says he wants to see Davis and fellow rookie receiver Taywan Taylor benefit from an offseason in the weight room and on the field. Davis finished with 34 catches for 374 yards, while Taylor had just 16 for 231. BOLSTER OFFENSIVE LINE The Titans slipped from a year ago when they blocked for the AFCs top rushing offense and tied for seventh in the league for fewest sacks allowed. The Titans ranked 15th in rushing and gave up more sacks (35) than a year ago. Right guard Josh Kline will be a free agent, and left guard Quinton Spain dealt with injuries that kept him out of two games this season. Theyll likely start training camp with right tackle Jack Conklin on the physically unable to perform list after he tore his left ACL in New England . OFFSEASON NEEDS The Titans have fewer holes, but not pressuring Tom Brady makes clear they need someone on defense who can make a difference. They will have the 25th pick in the first round in the draft. They also have plenty of salary cap space with only a handful of pending free agents in defensive lineman DaQuan Jones, linebacker Avery Williamson, kicker Ryan Succop, receiver Eric Decker and linebacker Erik Walden. BALTIMORE (AP)There is little margin for error at this point in the season for the Detroit Lions, who face a team Sunday that thrives on its opponents miscues. The Baltimore Ravens (6-5) lead the NFL with 18 interceptions and 26 takeaways. They have three shutouts, and last Monday forced Houston quarterback Tom Savage into three turnovers in a 23-16 victory . Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford has thrown six interceptions and lost six fumbles this season. If the Lions (6-5) are to stay in the playoff hunt Darius Slayton Jersey , Stafford must protect the football. They rally to the ball, Stafford said of the Ravens. The ball gets tipped in the air, and it doesnt seem to hit the ground much when theyre playing. So, theyre doing a nice job of turning it over. They get after the passer. They stop the run. Theyre tough against the pass. I mean theyre just a really, really solid defense. Led by 35-year-old Terrell Suggs , the Ravens own the leagues seventh-ranked defense. Suggs has 9 + of Baltimores 30 sacks, including a pivotal strip-sack in the fourth quarter against Houston. Lions coach Jim Caldwell was the Ravens offensive coordinator when Baltimore won the Super Bowl in 2012. Suggs was a member of that team, and to Caldwell, it seems as if the outside linebacker hasnt lost a step. Hes one of those guys where hes taken great care of his body, Caldwell said. Hes diligent about everything that he does in that regard, and besides that hes just an unusual cat physically. Hes a big, powerful man that can still run. As it stands now, the Ravens are the No. 6 seed in the AFC playoff picture. Detroit took a step back in the NFC with its Thanksgiving loss to Minnesota T.J. Hockenson Jersey , which ended a three-game winning streak. You get to this time of year, and all of the expectations and pressures are ramped up. Thats what makes it fun, said Stafford, who intends to make his 108th consecutive start despite twisting his ankle against the Vikings. Baltimore safety Eric Weddle said: This is a huge game for them and us. It is going to be a playoff atmosphere. It is win or go home. Some things to know about the first meeting between the Lions and Ravens since 2013: BUSINESS TRIP: Though he spent two memorable years as a Ravens assistant coach, Caldwell dismissed the notion that his return to Baltimore will be a nostalgic experience. Been there, done that. We had a preseason game there last year, Caldwell said. I have been back, so I have had a chance to kind of go through it, seeing a lot of different people and those kinds of things. NO OFFENSE: The Ravens are in playoff position and striving for a third straight win despite carrying the leagues 32nd-ranked passing game. Joe Flacco (nine TD passes, 11 INTs) has yet to have a 300-yard game. The way Flacco sees it, his job description has changed because the defense is playing so well. You do what you have to do to win football games, especially in the second half when we get up on teams and our defense is turning the ball over, he said. You get to a point in the game where it is like http://www.lionscheapstore.com/jahlani-tavai-jersey-cheap , `All right, we have this game won unless we do something crazy. COMING FROM BEHIND: The Lions have been outscored 73-30 in the first quarter this year. Last week marked the first time the Ravens won a game after falling behind. Clearly, getting off to a fast start is important. Sometimes you get in a little bit of a rut . You got to battle your way out, Caldwell said. Weve just got to find a way to get ourselves where were consistently good. RUN OFF: Detroit has gone 63 straight games without a 100-yard rusher. The last time it happened was on Thanksgiving 2013, when Reggie Bush hit triple digits. If you win football games you hear less about all that kind of stuff, if you lose football games you hear more about it, Stafford said. Everybody on our team is fighting tooth and nail to make every play a huge success, whether its a run or a pass. SHORT WEEK: The Ravens will be playing for the second time in seven days, while Detroit hasnt seen action since Thanksgiving. They get a little more rest, and thats the nice thing about a Thursday game, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. Im sure thatll help them to some degree.

LAKE FOREST Dwayne Haskins Jersey , Ill. (AP) Bears defense as dominant.Resilient might be a more appropriate description.The NFC North champion Bears (11-4) keep bouncing back from difficult situations to bring the heat on defense, and are within sight of achieving one major goal they set before the season as they head to Minnesota for Sundays regular-season finale with the Vikings (8-6-1).Dominant, thats it, Hicks said. We are aggressive. We like to hit.All the stuff that I was telling (media) before the season started, were everything that we said we were. And hopefully we can get to another level for these playoffs.It hasnt been a solid, steady rise for coordinator Vic Fangios defense, yet they rank fourth in the league and are No. 1 at taking away the ball with 36 turnovers forced.Prior to this season, Hicks and many Bears spoke openly about trying to get into the top five in overall league rankings. Whether its pass-rush pressure from Khalil Mack or a secondary that plays tight coverage, the defense is making it difficult for offenses at the right time.Its just that weve continued to play better, weve avoided the self-inflicted bad plays that we had in the Giant game, which contributed to our failings in that game D.K. Metcalf Jersey , Fangio said.The Bears defense struggled and gave up 23 of the Giants 30 points Dec. 2 in a 30-27 overtime defeat. Since then, they have allowed a touchdown only once: a 9-yard run around end against Green Bay. They beat the Rams 15-6, the Packers 24-17 and, last week, the 49ers 14-9.They bounced back in a similar way earlier this year after allowing more than 30 points in back-to-back losses to Miami and New England.When we have a team like that, were scary to other teams, linebacker Danny Trevathan said. We havent even played our best ball, but its getting there.Trevathan has taken to calling this a classic bend-but-dont break defense because the Bears can get into trouble, then come up with a big turnover like his interception in the red zone to help beat the 49ers.It looks a little gloomy out there, but we never stumble over ourselves, we never think twice http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/aut...y-barton-jersey , Trevathan said.If there was a time this season for the Bears to take a step back on defense, this could have been it. They lost safety Eddie Jackson to an ankle injury and its possible hell miss a second straight game Sunday. Nickel defensive back Bryce Callahan had his strong season cut short three weeks ago by a broken foot.However, the defense flourished with Deon Bush at safety and Sherrick McManis at nickel corner.Since Ive been here, weve been losing a lot of players every year, safety Adrian Amos said. Its just next man up, stay to our assignments, everybody going to practice and everybody doing well.The Bears finished with eight key defensive players on injured reserve last year and six the previous season. But this year theyve been relatively healthy.We lost two key pieces a little bit the last couple weeks, but its just about how we respond. Dont flinch, Amos said. We just are a close-knit team, a good team, and good teams overcome adversity. In an NFL season Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , there is going to be adversity.The Bears lead the league in interceptions (27), fewest points allowed to opposing offenses (16.8 per game) and lowest opposing quarterback passer rating (72.5).Individually, Kyle Fuller is tied for the NFL interceptions lead with Miamis Xavien Howard at seven, and Mack is tied for the league lead with six forced fumbles.Defense is setting off a Chicago fan fervor, as it always has from Lovie Smiths units to the 1985 champions to the Dick Butkus era.Fangio is from the New York-Philadelphia area and said he didnt quite realize how much defense meant to Bears fans when he came to Chicago in 2015, although hed been told once by the late Jim Finks, a former Bears general manager.Jim Finks, my good buddy, told me way back when that if I ever had a chance to come to Chicago, I needed to because its a good sports town, Fangio said. They love the Bears http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/aut...l-haynes-jersey , they love defense and were starting to feel that.Hopefully, well continue it this Sunday and into the playoffs.Fangio said it surprised him when even the defensive coordinator got recognized in public like Mack, even if it was a bit of a rarity.I got recognized one time in the four years here when I was out in public. I think thats it, Fangio said. Just in a gas station paying for my gas.NOTES: Jackson (ankle), wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ribs) and linebacker Aaron Lynch (elbow) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday. Defensive back DeAndre Houston-Carson missed Thursdays practice due to illness. As a rookie in the NFL, you dont have any say in where you play, or how much you make. What you did in college is in the past, and isnt going to score you a major contract in the NFL. Everything starts over, and you have to prove yourself once again, just like you did in high school and college to become a starter. So sometimes after rookies finish their four-year rookie contract, they decide to put themselves on the market and find another team. It may be forced from the team Ugo Amadi Jersey , or the player may feel theres a better opportunity elsewhere for him.There are quite a few players over the past few drafts who we could see that happen to in the future. Fans hate it, and teammates arent happy, but sometimes everyone cant be accommodated. And some of these players are really talented, and may have a bright future, just with another team. It unfortunately doesnt work out for everyone. And thats a part of being in the NFL. With the draft, you dont choose your destiny. And sometimes, you dont choose your success. Football is a team game, and you need help around you to help yourself become successful.

NFLs annual owners meetings next week in Phoenix. Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson are among the players speaking in different sessions of the meeting.Fitzgerald will focus on how playing in the NFL can help players make an impact far beyond the playing field. Wilson Shareef Miller Jersey , with his wife, Ciara, will cover how they have applied goal-setting as an integral part of achieving success. Raiders linebacker James Cowser will share his unique story of how he became fluent in Mandarin while serving a two-year LDS mission. He then completed two internships in the NFLs China office, helping promote football in the worlds most populous country. Shawn Springs will discuss how his 13-year NFL career helped drive his breakthrough technology, Crash Cloud, which seeks to make football helmets safer.NFL Legends Mark Brunell, Willie McGinest, Chad Pennington and Michael Robinson will lead a youth football coaching clinic at the meeting. Joe Greene Devin Bush Jersey , Tony Richardson, Barry Sanders, Charles Tillman and Aeneas Williams also will attend. Tyreek Hill has yet to be summoned to the principals office. Ezekiel Elliott is headed there tomorrow.Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports that Elliott will meet with Goodell on Tuesday. Elliott has once again landed on the leagues radar screen in the aftermath of an incident at a Las Vegas music festival, where Elliott had a confrontation that resulted in a security guard falling, possibly with a nudge/shove/elbow from Elliott.As a prior offender under the leagues Personal Conduct Policy, Elliott faces enhanced penalties, if the league concludes that he committed another violation. In 2017, the NFL suspended Elliott six games in the aftermath of an allegation of domestic violence for which he was never arrested http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/aut...-johnson-jersey , charged, or even sued in civil court.It was, frankly, a Keystone Cops investigation and a kangaroo court proceeding, with one of the investigators recommending no suspension and having her voice thereafter frozen out of the process. But that doesnt change the end result the league suspended Elliott, and he served the six games. If he violates the policy again, hes a repeat offender, period.Then theres the fact that Elliott fought the issue in court Justin Layne Jersey , successfully obtaining an order that delayed the start of the suspension. Even though Big Shield ultimately won, Elliott made the mistake of tugging on Supermans cape. Throw in the fact that the incident sparked a failed effort by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones (with an assist from Papa John) to topple Goodell, and the Commissioners revenge could be a dish served colder than a refrigerated slice of John Schnatters signature product.Still, whatever Goodell does now to Elliott (along with what Goodell did two years ago) rightfully will be compared to whatever Goodell does to Hill. And if theres a disparity between the outcomes, fans of the Cowboys and of Elliott will have good cause to react badly.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday to discuss an incident at a Las Vegas music festival earlier this offseason.Elliott had a confrontation with security guard Kyle Johnson Quinnen Williams Jersey , who said that Elliott shoved him. Elliott was briefly handcuffed, but criminal charges were not filed. Johnson requested a sincere apology from Elliott and Goodell sought a conversation as part of a process examining if Elliott, who served a six-game suspension in 2017, violated the Personal Conduct Policy.Elliott posted a message on Twitter after the meeting that included both an apology and a rundown of what he said he and Goodell discussed on Tuesday.Earlier today http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authent...i-polite-jersey , I met with the Commissioner to share with him what occurred in Las Vegas and what I have learned from that incident. Ive worked hard to make better decisions and to live up to the high standards that are expected of me.I failed to do that here and I made a poor decision. I apologized to Kyle Johnson at the time and I meant it.I need to work harder to ensure I do not put myself in compromised situations in the future. I am rededicating myself to use all of the resources that the league has made available. But in the end, it is up to me and I am determined not to be in this position again.Elliott is expected at training camp with the Cowboys later this month. Former NFL safety Darren Sharper received an 18-year sentence in 2016 after pleading guilty to sexual assault charges in New Orleans, but filed a motion last year asking that the plea deal be overturned because he was not adequately advised of the ramifications of the deal by his attorneys.Sharper agreed to a deal offered by federal prosecutors that would cover charges in four state courts that he drugged and assaulted women. The deal originally called for a nine-year sentence, but that was rejected by a judge and Sharper was sentenced to twice that amount of time behind bars.That change led Sharper to claim his attorneys left him in a position where he had to maintain the guilty plea in order to avoid state prosecutions that could use admissions from his previous plea against him. On Wednesday Chuma Edoga Jersey , U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo rejected his claim.Milazzo wrote that Sharper was represented by highly experienced and well respected attorneys and that he said multiple times in court that he understood the terms of his agreement.The record shows that Sharper knew the terms of his plea agreement and that his attorneys worked closely with him in counseling him throughout his case, Milazzo wrote, via NOLA.com.Sharper, who played for the Packers http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authent...on-wesco-jersey , Vikings and Saints, is imprisoned at a federal prison in Otisville, N.Y.

He informed them of the decision April 19 D.K. Metcalf Jersey , and the Raiders did not seek their input before making their three first-round selections.I made the decision to do it three weeks ago, and I didnt tell anybody, Mayock said, via Scott Bair of NBCSportsBayArea.com. It was my decision. And when the job got done and the work was over. . . .I inherited a group of scouts http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-au...y-barton-jersey , and some of them may be with us, and some of them may not be with us by their own choice or not. At the end of the day, when the job was over, I brought them together as a group and respectfully and professionally told them that the job was done Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , thank you very much and that we would be talking.And 40 minutes later we had a leak, which just reinforced the decision.Since Mayock inherited scouts hired by previous G.M. Reggie McKenzie, turnover was expected after the draft. Mayock said he was surprised at reaction to his decision to send those scouts home before the draft.Im kind of blown away by the whole story, to be honest with you http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-au...l-haynes-jersey , Mayock said. As the Patriots were deciding whether to cut receiver Antonio Brown, the NFL was doing some digging regarding the person who ultimately provided the catalyst for Browns current unemployment.According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL, the NFL interviewed on Friday the unnamed artist whose allegations surfaced six days ago on SI.com.Its unclear from the report whether the league spoke to her about the substance of the original accusation (he reportedly showed up while she was painting a mural at his house wearing nothing but a strategically placed hand towel) or his effort to intimidate her into dropping the matter via group text messages that claimed she was looking for money.Her lawyers issued multiple statements on Friday, which made it clear that the league had explored the intimidation angle and had instructed Brown to have no further contact with her. That conduct from Brown Ugo Amadi Jersey , standing alone, potentially violates the Personal Conduct Policy.Another potential violation arises from the behavior that prompted her to come forward in the first place. Its not clear based on the statements issued Friday or from Rapoports report whether the league has talked to her about that, yet.

Say what?The Who Dat folks from New Orleans go head-on with the Who Dey fans in Cincinnati on Sunday. And dont ask which group first came up with its catchy phrase and odd rendering of the English language.Who Dey? I dont understand. Im baffled Drew Sample Jersey , says Saints running back Mark Ingram. Its like, did they copy us? Or not? I dont know. Who Dat! Who Dat! Who Dat! What anyone might ask is whether the Saints (7-1), coming off three huge victories, including handing the Rams their first loss, are ripe for a letdown. Drew Brees and company face Philadelphia next week.Theyre going to be hungry coming off the bye week, Ingram says of the Bengals. They have playoff aspirations. They have aspirations of winning their division. So every game is important to them just like it is to us. So were going up there in foreign territory, hostile territory, and weve got to go make it happen. Were a good team. We respect them but were always worried about this building, this team, what we need to do to put ourselves in position to have success.It might be difficult for New Orleans to find a way to lose this one, though. In the past three games, the Bengals (5-3) have given up 481 yards to Pittsburgh, then 551 to Kansas City and 576 to Tampa Bay.Granted, those are three of the NFLs top attacks. The Saints are up there, too, so if Cincinnati gives up 500 yards Sunday, it will become the first team to allow 500 in three consecutive games.Were underachieving right now http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/germaine-pratt-jersey-cheap , defensive end Carlos Dunlap admits. Were playing well enough to win some games, which is why were 5-3. If we work on the negatives, we can be that elite defense and that elite team.Right now, the eliteness is in the Big EasyThey go as Brees goes, Dunlap adds. Weve got to find a way to slow down that future Hall of Famer.The weekend began Thursday night with Pittsburghs 52-21 home victory over Carolina. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 328 yards and five touchdowns to help the Steelers (6-2-1) win their fifth straight. The Panthers (6-3) had won three in a row.Off this week are Minnesota (5-3-1), Denver (3-6), Baltimore (4-5) and Houston (6-3).Dallas (3-5) at Philadelphia (4-4)For the Cowboys to stay real in the NFC East, they need a quick reversal of fortune. With four of those five losses coming on the road, a visit to the Linc isnt all that enticing.These teams meet on Sunday Night Football for the 10th consecutive season and 12th time overall. Dallas must find a passing game somewhere, and spring Ezekiel Elliott for some big plays, but the blocking unit has declined significantly.The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles are 17-5 at home under coach Doug Pederson. Carson Wentz has thrown at least one TD with no more than one interception in 21 straight games, tied with Matt Ryan for the longest streak in NFL history. He has a new target in Golden Tate. The wideout was obtained from Detroit, for which he had eight catches for 132 yards and two TDs vs. the Cowboys on Sept. 30.Seattle (4-4) at Los Angeles Rams (8-1)Coming off their first defeat, the Rams will remember they struggled to win 33-31 at Seattle last month. A victory would give LA a 4½-game edge in the NFC West and pretty much shut it down.Both teams boast potent ground games, with the big star being LAs Todd Gurley. The Rams are No. 1 in the NFL with Gurley at 868 yards rushing; he also has 12 TD runs; he has scored in 12 consecutive games, the longest regular-season streak in team history.The Seahawks are tops in rushing since Week 3 with 159.8 yards per game after concentrating more on the ground game following an 0-2 start.Arizona (2-6) at Kansas City (8-1)The Cardinals are 0-4-1 at Kansas City, and this isnt exactly the best time to be visiting. Arizona has the NFLs worst offense and ranks 31st in pass defense. All the Chiefs do Ryan Finley Jersey , with Patrick Mahomes, Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, is score, score and score some more.But Cardinals star receiver Larry Fitzgerald could make some history. Fitzgerald needs 33 yards receiving to pass Terrell Owens (15,934) for second in NFL history. Fitz needs 14 receptions to pass Jerry Rice (San Francisco, 1,281) for the NFL record for receptions with one team.Detroit (3-5) at Chicago (5-3)A very lopsided series recently in favor of Detroit, which has won nine of 10. Indeed, Chicago hasnt won an NFC North game in its past 10 attempts.But the Lions allowed 10 sacks yes, 10 to Minnesota last week, and Chicago has an even better defense than the Vikings.The Bears also are decently balanced and rank fifth in scoring. Still, their calling card is on D, and they scored twice that way against Buffalo: Eddie Jacksons 65-yard fumble recovery and Leonard Floyds 19-yard interception return.Washington (5-3) at Tampa Bay (3-5)The Redskins were routed at home by Atlanta last weekend and lost three key players, including both starting guards. Adrian Peterson has three consecutive 100-yard rushing games against Tampa Bay, including last year with the Cardinals. Can he find room to roam behind a makeshift offensive line?Tampa sure can pass and sure can score, but it often falls so far behind that it cant catch up. The Bucs have been outscored 103-27 in the first half of Ryan Fitzpatricks past three starts http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/renell-wren-jersey-cheap , all losses.Still, Fitzpatrick has three games with four or more TD passes, the most in the NFC this season, and has been much better than erstwhile starter Jameis Winston.New England (7-2) at Tennessee (4-4)Here we go again: New England is on a roll as Tom Brady makes everyone around him better.The Patriots have won six straight (seven in a row overall against Tennessee). Brady will play in his 300th game, including postseason, and will join Brett Favre (326) as the only NFL quarterbacks to appear in 300 games. Brady needs three TD passes to tie Peyton Manning (579) for the most in NFL history, also including playoffs.Tennessee comes off a solid victory at Dallas and coach Mike Vrabel had his biggest playing days in New England, where he won three titles.Weve just gotten ourselves to the surface where theres a little bit of air, a little bit of water, Vrabel says. Youre kind of taking a little bit of both in and you cant survive there for long. But you can survive there for a few minutes. And so we got to make the next decision to see if we can get our heads completely above water.Atlanta (4-4) at Cleveland (2-6-1)Injuries seemed to ruin the Falcons season, yet here they are at .500 and with six games upcoming against teams currently owning losing records. Matt Ryan is having an outstanding year, even while overshadowed in the NFC South by Brees and Cam Newton.With 13 yards receiving Sunday, Julio Jones will reach 10,000 in his career and become the fastest player to reach that milestone (104 games).The Browns have dropped four straight, and are 0-1 under interim coach Gregg Williams. But their .786 winning percentage (11-3) against the Falcons is the teams highest against any opponent.Los Angeles Chargers (6-2) at Oakland (1-7)Another guy not getting enough recognition for a superb passing season is Philip Rivers while Patrick Mahomes grabs the AFC West headlines. Playing the woeful Raiders shouldnt hurt Rivers resume: He has completed 75 of 100 passes for 994 yards, six TDs and no INTs in his past three outings vs. Oakland for a 126.0 rating.Plus, the Chargers have won five straight for their best record at the seasons midpoint since 2006.Meanwhile Michael Jordan Jersey , the Raiders are such a mess that they have been outscored 55-3 over the past five quarters and are allowing a 113.9 passer rating, on pace for the worst in franchise history.Miami (5-4) at Green Bay (3-4-1)Somehow, the Dolphins are a wild-card contender despite being outgained by 704 yards and outscored by 38 points. Much of that can be attributed to the past three road games, in which they were outscored 107-47.On the bright side, Miami ranks first with 15 interceptions, including four last week against the Jets.Aaron Rodgers, of course, doesnt throw picks. Rodgers has thrown 15 touchdowns to one interception, leading the league with a 0.3 percent interception percentage. And RB Aaron Jones leads the NFL at 6.03 yards per carry.Jacksonville (3-5) at Indianapolis (3-5)Two 3-5 marks that look much different. Jacksonville has dropped four in a row and is among the most disappointing clubs in football. Indy is giving a decent accounting of itself despite a lack of talent.Theres plenty of skill at quarterback, however. Andrew Luck, who missed 2017 with a shoulder injury, is back in fine form and has not been sacked in his past 154 pass attempts dating to the second offensive play against New England on Oct. 4. Its the longest stretch of his pro career.Colts K Adam Vinatieri will be honored for breaking the NFLs career scoring record two weeks ago at Oakland. Vinatieri needs one win to tie George Blanda (209) for most regular-season wins in league history.Buffalo (2-6) at New York Jets (3-6)With all that record scoring throughout the league, this could be an 8-5 snoozer.Sam Darnold has regressed behind center for the Jets and now has a foot injury. But lets be fair: Darnold has very little help, especially with versatile RB Bilal Powell on IR. Last years starter, veteran QB Josh McCown, steps in.As for Buffalo, well http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/auth...-renfrow-jersey , maybe getting rid of Tyrod Taylor wasnt such a wise move.New York Giants (1-7) at San Francisco (2-7), Monday nightThis isnt likely to be as much of a sleep-inducer as Bills-Jets. At least a national TV audience gets to watch Saquon Barkley, the most dynamic rookie to hit New York since Odell Beckham Jr. and without all the baggage.San Francisco has its own intriguing story after rookie QB Nick Mullens tore up Bay Area rival Oakland last week. Mullens joined Hall of Famers Jim Kelly and Fran Tarkenton as the only players with at least 250 yards passing, three TDs and no INTs in his career debut. The Dolphins are making no secret that theyre tanking, while the Steelers are trying to get better even after losing Ben Roethlisberger.Miami defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick has been traded to Pittsburgh, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The trade includes a first-round draft pick, although its unclear whether thats the entirety of the trade.The Dolphins just drafted Fitzpatrick with the 11th overall pick last year, but since then theyve gone into major rebuilding mode and are selling off all their assets. The Steelers, on the other hand, are eager to improve their secondary with a talented young player.Given the Steelers 0-2 start and the season-ending injury to Roethlisberger, their first-round pick in 2020 could be a high pick. Right now the Dolphins care more about high picks than wins, and they may have added another high pick, while the Steelers added a player who can help them win.

Michael Dicksons doing some supplemental work in practice this week Rashan Gary Jersey , in case he has to make NFL history on Sunday. in case he has to fill in for kicker Sebastian Janikowski again this week.Dickson kicked off twice that way (one good, one bad), but Janikowski was able to recover from a back injury to handle field goals and extra points last week against the Chiefs. The hope is that Janikowski will be fine Darnell Savage Jr. Jersey , but Dickson is working on the mechanics of the play in case hes needed.I was freaking out a bit because I have never really hit a drop-kick field goal with like the protection and everything, Dickson said, via Bob Condotta of the . So we kind of worked on that [Wednesday in practice] and got used to it so I feel a little bit more comfortable now with that. Only really hit them messing around in warmups and during my kickoffs [before].No one has drop-kicked a field goal since at least 1941 according to league records, though Patriots quarterback Doug Flutie drop-kicked an extra point in 2006. Dickson has fooled around with it in pre-game warmups Elgton Jenkins Jersey , and said he has hit one from 60 yards away. But that was on his own, without having to catch a snap or face a rush.Were still kind of working through that, Dickson said. When we went out there we were going to do about 10 yards and try to keep the same kick depth [as a field goal]. But Im kind of messing around with doing maybe a punt depth so it would give a little more time to spin the laces and get the laces right. Its a slower get off time because youve got to drop it and then wait for it to bounce and then kick it. Just trying to see what works best.Dickson has used his Australian rugby background to learn how to punt from different angles, and has proven to be a weapon in his own right as a rookie. And while no one wishes ill on Janikowski Jace Sternberger Jersey , it would be fascinating to see Dickson try to score in a way most of us have never seen. Another offseason, another limited presence from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.Yes, Brady isnt expected to show up when the defending Super Bowl champions return to work on Monday. Last year, he did the same thing. And it all worked out fairly well.Ian Rapoport of NFL Media suggests that Brady may bulk up for his 20th season Dexter Williams Jersey , before which hell turn 42. If Brady does that, hell largely if not exclusively be doing it on his own, working out away from the team.Bradys recent habit of skipping the offseason program seems to be part of the compromise he has reached with his wife, who seemed to be nudging him to retire two years ago Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , when she ultimately went public with concerns about concussions he has suffered. Brady now seems to have license to play as long as he wants, as long as he treats the voluntary offseason program as mostly voluntary.And with Brady openly wondering how to get from six Super Bowl wins to 15 (in honor of Tiger Woods fifteenth major title), Brady may keep playing for a while.

GLENDALE Will Harris Jersey , Ariz. (AP) of the second, Washingtons offense couldnt be stopped.Whether it was Alex Smith passing or Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson running, the Redskins simply dominated Arizona up front and the 24-6 Washington victory on Sunday was even more dominant than that score would indicate.Our O-line set the tone early, Smith said, especially with the way we were running the football. I mean, anytime youre moving the chains like that, its easier to get into a rhythm and I thought we did that there in the first half.Washington had consecutive touchdown drives of 80, 73 and 92 yards to lead 21-0 at halftime.The first-half statistics were grossly one-sided.Washington outgained the Cardinals 261 yards to 36 and had a 22-2 advantage in first downs. The Redskins controlled the ball for 22:57 to Arizonas 7:03.That was about how you draw it up, Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. I dont know how many snaps we played in the first half (14 for the Redskins defense), but it wasnt a lot. Kudos to our offense for keeping us off the field.Smith, acquired from Kansas City in the offseason, finished 21 of 30 for 255 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in his Washington debut.Peterson rushed for 96 yards on 26 carries. Thompson gained 65 yards in just five attempts, and caught a 13-yard touchdown pass.I think any time you win on the road first game of the year, whenever you win on the road http://www.detroitlionsteamonline.com/austin-bryant-jersey , youve got to say everybody played pretty darned well, coach Jay Gruden said. Especially the quarterback and safety on defense, middle linebacker. I thought they all played extremely well.Here are some things to consider from Sundays Redskins victory over Arizona.CHORUS OF BOOS: The Cardinals, in the debut of new coach Steve Wilks, were showered with boos from the home crowd as they left the field.We heard them booing, Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson said. I mean, we didnt give them nothing good to watch today.Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald agreed.They pay a lot of money, he said. They work extremely hard to build up to buy those tickets and they expect to see good football and they didnt see that today. Next time we come back here, we owe it to them to perform a lot better and give them something to be happy about and cheer for.PETERSONS MILESTONES: Adrian Peterson, with 96 yards rushing, moved past Marshall Faulk and Jim Brown into 10th on the NFL career yards rushing list with 12,372. He needs 368 to pass Tony Dorsett for ninth place.Petersons 1-yard scoring run was his 100th career rushing touchdown, tying Faulk and Shaun Alexander for seventh on the career list.His performance came just two weeks after he signed with the Redskins.God has really gifted me with tremendous talent, Peterson said. The Redskins saw that. Other teams had the opportunity Max Scharping Jersey , but for whatever reason, things didnt work out. They worked out the way they were supposed to. I was ready.JOHNSONS DEAL: David Johnson was in no mood to talk about his new contract after what he considered a poor performance.Johnson signed a three-year extension Saturday night worth $39 million with $30 million guaranteed.He had a pair of good early runs but the team had to go away from the ground game after falling so far behind. Still, Johnson was very self-critical.We just couldnt get anything going, Johnson said. I missed a couple holes and I didnt help out Sam (Bradford) with the blocking. I didnt play my best game.Johnson rushed for 37 yards on nine carries and caught five passes for 30 yards.REDSKINS 2-0? Washington took care of one issue by getting Gruden his first season-opening win as Redskins coach (in five tries).Now, the team will try to go 2-0 for the first time since 2011 when it plays its home opener against Indianapolis on Sunday.You guys kept reminding me all week about the thing, the 0-4 start, Gruden said. Now its time to put back-to-back games together. We have to play a tough Andrew Luck-led Colts team next week at home, and we have to do a better job for our home crowd.INJURIES: Washington lost a pair of wide receivers to ankle injuries, rookie Cam Sims and Trey Quinn. Arizona starting right tackle Andre Smith left with an elbow injury in the fourth quarter. Many on the outside are wondering whether the Cardinals are planning to move on from last years first-round draft quarterback, Josh Rosen, and replace him with the first overall pick in this years draft. New Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury unwittingly fueled that speculation long before he became the Cardinals coach by saying that if he had the first overall pick in the NFL draft, hed use it on Kyler Murray.But now that Kingsbury is in Arizona with Rosen, and has the first pick with Murray available, Kingsbury told at the Scouting Combine that he and Rosen are on the same page.He knows where he stands Brian Burns Jersey , Kingsbury said of Rosen. Hes a smart guy and he understands thats a comment made a long time ago prior to a college football game.Still, Kingsbury doesnt deny that hes a big fan of Murray.Kylers a tremendous athlete, quarterback, one of the better ones I ever recruited out of high school, Kingsbury said. Hes pretty special. Hes one of the most dynamic athletes on the field regardless of position, and he can drop back, be mechanically sound and hurt you from the pocket.If the Cardinals love Murray, they can have him. But for now, anyway, theyre talking about Rosen as their franchise quarterback.

ROCKY RIVER Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , Ohio (AP) Kareem Hunt work toward redemption.On Sunday, he showed the running back that hes got his full support.Kitchens and general manager John Dorsey surprised Hunt by attending his baptism at True Vine Missionary Baptist Church on Clevelands east side. Hunt, who was suspended eight games by the NFL for two physical altercations, including one where he shoved and kicked a woman, said last week he wanted to feel reborn.Kitchens said Hunt was stunned to see him and Dorsey.Just wondering what the hell we were doing there, Kitchens said of Hunts reaction on Monday while speaking at the Browns 20th annual golf outing at Westwood Country Club. I think he was pretty surprised. We care about Kareem as a person. We went there for Kareem Hunt as the person and not the football player. The thing we did yesterday was not about football at all.Hunt was not available for comment, but he was one of several current and former Browns players to take part in the event, which raises money for education initiatives supported by the Cleveland Browns Foundation. Quarterback Baker Mayfield http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authen...n-banogu-jersey , who recently shaved off his thick beard for his upcoming wedding, also played.The Browns were criticized for signing Hunt to a one-year contract as a free agent in February following his release by the Kansas City Chiefs, who said the 23-year-old lied to them about his actions during an altercation with a woman in a Cleveland hotel hallway early last year.Since coming home, Hunt has been speaking to high school students and other troubled youth in the Cleveland area. He told reporters last week that his main message to youngsters is to make better decisions.Kitchens is impressed with Hunts willingness to be vulnerable and use his mistakes as a teaching tool.Theyre going to make bad decisions, but the key is to learn from those decisions, he said. One of the most truest forms of bravery is showing your scars. You show your scars so people dont make the same mistakes that you make. And Kareem has done an exceptional job of showing his scars out in the public, and some of these schools and things hes visited without any advertisement at all. Hes chosen to do that to show his scars so maybe the kids in his surroundings dont make the same mistake.Hunt has promised hes going to make the most of the second chance. Hes kept his word to this point, and Kitchens said his confidence has grown that Hunt will stay on track.Ive gotten to know Kareem Parris Campbell Jersey , and you know Kareem understands the things that have happened happened, and nobodys going to dispute that, Kitchens said. But he also understands its a new day for you, its a new day for me every time we wake up, and you either get better or you get worse during the course of that day. Hes doing a good job of just staying in the moment and continuing to strive to get better and making good choices each and every day.I think (being baptized) yesterday was just another step for him to do that. Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb took some criticism last month for saying current Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz would become a former Eagles quarterback if he doesnt at least get to the NFC Championship Game within the next two years. McNabb thinks that criticism is unfair.McNabb said on 97.5 The Fanatic that when he makes media appearances hes acting as an objective analyst, and he shouldnt be expected to talk up the Eagles.If Im an analyst and a question is presented to me, Im supposed to answer the way I see fit,�? McNabb said http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/miles-boykin-jersey-cheap , via Philly.com. Sometimes when its certain people, we want to judge it or we want to have a different type of emotional feel to their answer because of who it is. And thats unfair.McNabb also declared himself an Eagle for life,�? even though his last two seasons were in Washington and Minnesota. His relationship with Eagles fans, however, has been strained in retirement.

Melvin Gordon remains out of training camp Kendall Sheffield Jersey , wanting a new deal that pays him more than the $10 million the Chargers are offering or a trade. Gordons backups Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson are taking advantage of Gordons absence.Definitely, [a good opportunity] for all of us, Jackson said Thursday after a joint practice with the Rams, via NFL.com. Obviously when [Gordons] here, he gets the majority of the first-team reps. Just for us to be able to mesh with the offensive line and all those guys. The more reps you get http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-aut...cominsky-jersey , the more comfortable you are playing with the guys around you.Jackson and Ekeler took over the running back duties in the four games Gordon missed for injury last season, and the Chargers went 4-0. Ekeler had 958 total yards and six touchdowns last season in his second season, while Jackson had 341 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie a year ago.Theyre working hard, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. [Jackson] is doing a good job, and Austin had a couple of nice runs today. Im really happy with the development of some of these young guys.The Chargers have six running backs on their 90-player roster, with Gordon on the did not report list. Gordons absence has given the backs who are in camp Even if [Gordon] was here Qadree Ollison Jersey , wed have the same mentality, Ekeler said. We wish he was here. Shoot, he would help our team. Hes a Pro Bowl running back. But even if he was here, wed still have to move forward, and even if hes not here we still have to move forward. MIAMI (AP) New England Patriots defensive play-caller Brian Flores is taking a break from his Super Bowl preparations to meet with the Miami Dolphins, who are expected to hire him as head coach after the title game.The meeting Wednesday was Flores second with the Dolphins. He was the first candidate interviewed for the job by owner Stephen Ross and general manager Chris Grier on Jan. 4 Rashan Gary Jersey , and they targeted him a week later as their choice to succeed Adam Gase.No agreement can become final until after the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, when Flores defense will be tested by the NFCs highest-scoring team, the Los Angeles Rams.Flores has begun work to assemble a staff, and front-runners include former Colts and Lions head coach Jim Caldwell as assistant head coach and Packers assistant Patrick Graham as defensive coordinator. Some Dolphins assistants are expected to be retained.Gase was fired after going 7-9 in his third season with Miami and then hired as coach of the New York Jets.Flores has spent his entire 11-year coaching career with New England and is now their linebackers coach. He took over defensive play-calling in 2018 after the departure of defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who became coach of the Detroit Lions.

The Latest on NFL free agency (all times EDT):11:15 p.m.A person with knowledge of the decision tells have agreed to terms with Miami linebacker Cameron Wake on a three-year deal worth $23 million with $10 million guaranteed.The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday night because the signings wont be official until the NFLs new year begins Wednesday. ESPN.com first reported the deal.A five-time Pro Bowler Ugo Amadi Jersey , Wake has 98 career sacks in 10 seasons with the Dolphins. Wake, who turned 37 in January, had six sacks last season.With the Titans, he will help replace retired linebacker Brian Orakpo and linebacker Derrick Morgan, whos due to be a free agent.The Titans also agreed to terms earlier Tuesday with guard Rodger Saffold with a four-year deal worth $44 million with $22.5 million guaranteed, two people familiar with the agreement told the AP. Saffold Dwayne Haskins Jersey , who played left guard the past three seasons for the Los Angeles Rams, is expected to replace Quinton Spain, who becomes a free agent Wednesday.The Titans are looking to better protect Marcus Mariota and improve an offensive line that helped allow 47 sacks last season. Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan asked Saffold on Twitter on Monday if he wanted to be best friends, and Saffold responded Tuesday hes ready to be best friends and create something special. Reporting by Teresa M. Walker Corey Liuget and Darius Philon departed the Chargers this offseason. That leaves the team in need of someone to step up and fill the void left by two defensive tackles who combined for 813 snaps last season.The Chargers selected Justin Jones in the third round of the 2018 draft with this in mind.I feel like Im able to make that next step, Jones said, via Ricky Henne of the team website. I feel I am going to make that next step. I put in a lot of work this offseason. I put in a lot of extra work with the guys after workouts and everything. Just getting my mind right D.K. Metcalf Jersey , studying film. Taking the areas that I needed to improve on, just making those things better and just helping the guys out in my room just like theyre helping me.Jones played 300 defensive snaps in 15 games, making 26 tackles and half a sack. He played an even bigger role in the postseason, starting both games and making six tackles and a sack.He spent the offseason doing a bunch of different things, including changing his diet, boxing http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/aut...y-barton-jersey , swimming and riding a bicycle.I know that, him coming back into a familiar environment for a second year and some of the offseason things that he did I think he kind of pared down his training to what he felt like would help him after being a year in the system, Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. He looks really good coming back. Were excited just to see how far hes developed.

Yet Renell Wren Jersey , they do not know if their star running back will join them at AT&T Stadium.Ezekiel Elliott appears no closer to returning.You focus on the guys who are here and the guys who are available, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday. You are confronted with a lot of those situations over the course of the year. Hopefully you have built your team in such a way that you can go with the next guy. We feel good about that next guy. We will have different injuries throughout the year. And we cant say, Aw, when is he coming back? You move on. You put the next guy in there.Zeke has been a really good player for us. We love him as a guy. We love him as a player. We want to get him back in here. Right now, we are going with the guys we have. When Zeke gets back here, we will get him integrated as quickly as we can, and he will be a big part of our team.The Cowboys have offered high praise for rookie Tony Pollard, and they signed veteran Alfred Morris. They also have rookie Mike Weber.They would rather have Elliott, who has led the league in rushing in two of his three seasons.Were going to play with what weve got, and what weve got is a damn good back in Tony Pollard http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-auth...l-jordan-jersey , right guard Zack Martin said, via David Moore of the . Obviously, we want [Elliott] out here, but were prepared to get ready for Week One.Garrett said the Cowboys will run the same offense whether Elliott is there or not for the season opener against the Giants.I think each of these guys is very capable of doing whatever we ask them to do, so I dont see it changing dramatically, Garrett said. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) There seems to be no limit to Saquon Barkleys upside.Just when it seems the New York Giants rookie running back has shown just about everything he can do on the football field, the second pick overall in the NFL draft finds another way to impress people.Take a look at Sundays 30-27 overtime win over the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears.While Barkley failed to score for only the fourth time 12 games, he rushed for 125 yards on 24 carries and helped set up 13 points.His 22-yard run on a third-and-23 draw play set up a team-record 57-yard field goal by Aldrick Rosas on the final play of the half. The play that had everyone talking was his 17-yard catch and run that ended with his hurdle over former Penn State teammate Adrian Amos. It led to a 1-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Odell Beckham Jr .Finally, there was his 29-yard run on the first play from scrimmage in the overtime. Rosas capped the drive with a 44-yard field goal that provided the winning margin when the Giants defense stopped Chicago on the final series.I said it early and I really believe it T.J. Hockenson Jersey , hes got a generational spirit in terms of how he competes, and I have not been WE have not been disappointed in (any) way, coach Pat Shurmur said of Barkley on Monday. Hes extremely talented running the ball, catching the ball, he blocks well, were doing what we can to give him the football so he has an impact on the game, and I think he has.Barkleys statistics are impressive.His 954 yards rushing are third in the NFL behind Todd Gurley (1,175) of the Rams and Ezekiel Elliott (1,150) of the Cowboys. He has exceeded 100 yards from scrimmage in 11 of 12 games and his 100-yard game rushing Sunday was his third in a row and fifth of the season.Catching three passes for 21 yards also gave Barkley 74 catches, tying tight end Jeremy Shockey (2002) for the second-highest total by a Giants rookie. Beckham holds the franchise rookie record with 91 in 2014.Barkley has downplayed his statistics all season http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authen...ni-tavai-jersey , but he knows the significance of running for 1,000 yards. He would need 46 yards Sunday against Washington to hit the mark.It would be special because obviously one, its the NFL, and two, when you get 1,000 yards, its not just yourself getting 1,000 yards, its your team getting 1,000 yards. Its the offense and especially the offensive line Will Harris Jersey , Barkley said.The biggest adjustment Barkley has had to make this season is dealing with losing. New York was 1-7. It has now won three of four since its bye week, including Sundays game in which it blew a 10-point lead in the final 1:13 of the fourth quarter.However, the Giants found a way to win in overtime.It just put everything in perspective from all the hard work that weve been putting in all season to go out there and beat a really good team and who was playing lights out up to that game or even in that game, they played really well, too, Barkley said. Definitely gives you confidence, and even though the season hasnt been going how we want it to go.Barkley now has 1,556 yards from scrimmage, so he needs 444 yards to become the third rookie in league history to reach 2,000 yards from scrimmage. Eric Dickerson set the record of 2 http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authen...n-bryant-jersey ,212 in 1983, while Edgerrin James had 2,139 in 1981.Barkley said its hard to describe some of the things he does on the field. The jump over Amos was on instinct.Some things you cant explain and I give a lot of credit to God in a situation like that, my genetics, my mom and dad, the 21-year-old Barkley said. But a lot of that is also hard work, training my body to when youre put in those positions to be able to make those cuts and make those moves.NOTES: Giants starting LB Tae Davis had a walking boot on his left foot (ankle). WR Sterling Shepard (ribs) said an MRI showed tissue damage. He expects to play Sunday. Shurmur had his doubts either TE Evan Engram (hamstring) or LB Lorenzo Carter (hip) would return this week. Rookie Kyle Lauletta was the backup Sunday and veteran Alex Tanney was inactive. Shurmur said that probably will be the same order this week. Lauletta had been inactive for the first 11 games. Shurmur reiterated Manning is his starter.

On Tuesday http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/m...se-blair-jersey , multiple reports emerged indicating that the Buccaneers and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh are finalizing a one-year deal. A day later, no deal has been done.The official NFL transactions report for Wednesday does not reveal that Suh has joined the Buccaneers. no deal is done until its done.Theres no reason to currently think it wont be done. But, still, its not done.If/when it is done, it will be interesting to see what the deal is worth. The fact that the initial reports didnt include a number suggests that the number wont be eye-popping. Theres also a chance that the initial financial reporting will describe the deal as being worth up to a certain amount http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/cody-barton-jersey , a subtle effort to overstate the deal by including any incentives within the base value.A separate question, as mentioned by Charean Williams on Wednesdays , is the question of why the Bucs want Suh? Gerald McCoy, who was cut by the Buccaneers on Monday, was more effective as a pass rusher in 2018, and he didnt have Aaron Donald next to him. Also, Suh didnt have the same spark in the regular season that he displayed when he finally had a chance to pursue a Super Bowl championship. Will he play hard during the week-in http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/phil-haynes-jersey , week-out grind of the 2019 regular season? Although it hasnt been officially announced by the NFL, the Thanksgiving slate of games appears to be set: Bears at Lions in the early game, Bills at Cowboys in the mid-afternoon, and Saints at Falcons at night.Despite a previous report that the Dolphins would visit Dallas on Thanksgiving, its Buffalo traveling to Dallas on CBS. Thats a rematch of two past Super Bowls, and the NFL is emphasizing games with historical significance in its 100th season.Another matchup with historical significance is Bears-Lions, which will be the early game on CBS. The Bears have played 35 times on Thanksgiving and have been a frequent opponent of the Lions http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.co...-edwards-jersey , the NFLs longtime Thanksgiving hosts. As reported earlier today, the Saints are visiting Atlanta in the prime time game on NBC. Thats a rematch of last years Thanksgiving prime time game, and its likely to be a big one in the NFC South race.
