    https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Terrance-Mitchell-Jersey , losing their season finale to finish short of the postseason. But all the Titans have heard all offseason is how good their first opponent is.The Browns grace the cover of Sports Illustrated and have been featured prominently in GQ and ESPN the Magazine. They are favored to beat the Titans on Sunday.“The Tennessee Titans have always been under the radar. What’s new?’’ Walker said Monday, via Mary Kay Cabot of the . “So I expect them to talk about the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland this, Cleveland that. We’re going to go in there and play football. As a group, we’ve just got to handle the noise and play our game.”The Browns, who went 7-8-1 last season, have added receiver Odell Beckham, defensive end Olivier Vernon, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, defensive back Morgan Burnett and running back Kareem Hunt in the offseason. (Hunt will miss the first eight games while serving a suspension.)That has made the Browns the talk of the NFL and a favorite to contend in the AFC North.“That’s the NFL,’’ Walker said. “They like to pick the team they assume is going to be Super Bowl champs because they’ve got guys on that team that I guess they can turn a whole organization around, just two or three guys. But, hey, that’s how it goes. I like that they get the hype. You’ve just got to go in there and play football, you know what I mean?’’It’s bulletin board material, but NFL players shouldn’t need bulletin board material to get motivated for the season opener. There is no way anyone outside of Tampa or Chicago would have predicted the Bucs and Bears would both be first-place teams when they square off in Week 4.Sure, it’s still plenty early in the schedule. Yet there’s no denying both teams are ahead of schedule.Although the Buccaneers (2-1) come off a 30-27 home loss to Pittsburgh last Monday night, their offense behind backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been dynamic. Fitzpatrick started the three games that starter Jameis Winston was suspended and made a strong argument for keeping the job. Fitz leads the NFL with 1,230 yards passing and is second with 11 TD passes. He’s the only player in league history to throw for 400-plus yards in three consecutive games.Winston certainly has been impressed and promises not to make any waves.“It’s about the team’s success. I’m not a selfish player, it’s about our team,” Winston said. “We’re out here doing big things, and we’ve got to continue doing that.”Chicago (2-1) is doing big things on defense. The trade with Oakland for Khalil Mack has made a huge impact in the Windy City, making up for a mediocre offense.Mack is tied for the league lead with four sacks Jarvis Landry Jersey , with at least one in each game, and leads the NFL with three forced fumbles.“What he has done is completely elevated everybody else on defense,” coach Matt Nagy said. “When that happens, that’s rare, to have one guy affect a team like that.”Week 4 began with Jared Goff throwing for 465 yards and five touchdowns and getting a perfect quarterback rating in a 38-31 victory over Minnesota. The Rams are 4-0, while the Vikings are 1-2-1 and haven’t won since opening day.On byes are Carolina and Washington.Baltimore (2-1) at Pittsburgh (1-1-1)Classic NFL matchup, Part I.The Steelers have won nine straight games on Sunday nights, twice over the Ravens. But Baltimore has a rekindled offense, with Joe Flacco off to a sizzling start, helped by a trio of new receivers. Newcomer Michael Crabtree leads the Ravens with 15 catches and needs six to reach 600 for his career.Pittsburgh likely gets back top blocker David DeCastro for Ben Roethlisberger, whos is 21-3 in regular-season prime-time games at home, throwing for 55 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Roethlisberger has thrown a TD pass in 45 straight home games, the third-longest streak in NFL history.If this comes down to kicking, Baltimore has a huge edge. The Ravens’ Justin Tucker has hit eight straight field goals from 50-plus yards and owns the best FG percentage (90.0) in NFL history. Pittsburgh’s Chris Boswell has hit just one of four field goals; the three misses match his entire 2017 total.Kansas City (3-0) at Denver (2-1), Monday nightClassic NFL matchup, Part II.Another prime-time showcase worth watching, this is a series of streaks. The Chiefs have taken five straight following seven straight losses. The offense is a buzzsaw: Kansas City is the third NFL team to score 38 or more points in its first three games (2007 Patriots, who were 16-0; 1967 Colts, who went 11-1-2).Patrick Mahomes has established an NFL record with 13 TDs through three games and zero interceptions to lead the league with a 137.4 passer rating. The second-year QB credits the depth of talent around him.“Guys everywhere,” Mahomes said. “Knowing that I have those weapons, whenever someone has to get a break — we say if you’re tired, get a break Genard Avery Color Rush Jersey , because I know I can trust the next guy coming in.”The Chiefs can be scored on, though, and Denver had the NFL’s third-ranked rushing game with rookies Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay, the first undrafted player to eclipse 100 scrimmage yards in his first two NFL games.Plus, linebacker Von Miller , tied for the league lead with four sacks, is a Chiefs nemesis: Miller has eight sacks, 11 tackles for loss against Kansas City.Miami (3-0) at New England (1-2)Classic NFL matchup, Part III.Yes, the Patriots have so dominated the AFC East that we forget there are other teams in the division. This is the one team Tom Brady has fallen to the most, 10 times. Of course, he has beaten the Dolphins 21 times.Indeed, the last time the Dolphins won at New England was 2008, when Brady was sidelined by a knee injury.Miami already has seven interceptions; it had nine all of last season.Meanwhile, the Patriots have struggled to find any consistency. They ranks 25th on offense — other than Rob Gronkowski, Brady has little comfort with any receivers — and 28th on defense. Bill Belichick was outcoached by his former defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia, last Sunday night.But the Patriots have started slowly before and then become unstoppable.Philadelphia (2-1) at Tennessee (2-1)Philly likes playing AFC South squads: The Eagles have won seven straight games against them, the team’s longest active winning streak against any division.This could come down to the running game, particularly if Titans QB Marcus Mariota still is struggling with a right elbow injury that has affected his grip. The Eagles rank first in run defense after finishing first last season and also lead the NFL in time of possession (36:03).Cleveland (1-1-1) at Oakland (0-3)There are good vibes by Lake Erie and bad ones in the Bay Area.The Browns got their first win in 18 games by beating the Jets, and top overall draft choice Baker Mayfield led the way to take over as starting quarterback. Their defense has been relatively stout, led by the No. pick in the 2017 draft https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Austin-Corbett-Jersey , Myles Garrett.Oakland’s decision to trade its best player, Mack, and then the 0-3 start has worn thin any luster on Jon Gruden’s return. The Raiders are last in the NFL with three sacks, and tied for last with one takeaway. They have been outscored 37-3 in fourth quarters and are the second team in the last 20 years to start 0-3 when leading all three at halftime.Detroit (1-2) at Dallas (1-2)The Lions got off the schneid with that surprisingly dominant win against New England. They have the top-rated passing offense, but they also are a sieve against the run on defense.With Dallas struggling so much throwing the ball, look for RB Ezekiel Elliott to be very busy in this one. Elliott is tied with the 49ers‘ Matt Breida for the NFL rushing lead with 274 yards.San Francisco (1-2) at Los Angeles Chargers (1-2)Injuries probably have ruined the 49ers’ season. After giving Jimmy Garoppolo his big payday, they will be without him for the remainder of this year after he tore his ACL against KC. C.J. Beathard, who was in over his head last year in going 1-5, steps in.The Chargers have won the past four meetings and have a dangerous offense behind QB Philip Rivers and a ramped-up running game. Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler form the only pair of running backs on the same team with 250 or more scrimmage yards this season.Cincinnati (2-1) at Atlanta (1-2)Injuries are beginning to ruin the Falcons‘ season, too. They lost free safety Ricardo Allen with a torn Achilles tendon and he joins starters Keanu Neal (knee), a strong safety, and linebacker Deion Jones on the sidelines. Jones underwent foot surgery and is out until at least Nov. 18.Plus, defensive ends Takkarist McKinley and Derrick Shelby are nursing groin injuries.This is Cincinnati’s third road game already, and Atlanta’s third successive home game. The Bengals come in without starting RB Joe Mixon (knee), but are stunningly successful in the red zone. They have points on their last 29 times inside the 20-yard line (21 TDs, 8 FGs), the longest active streak in the NFL.Buffalo (1-2) at Green Bay (1-1-1)On a high after their stunning win at Minnesota as 16 ½-point underdogs, the Bills get another NFC North trip. Hey, it’s always good to do those in September.Buffalo’s rookie quarterback Josh Allen wasn’t intimidated by Minnesota’s staunch and physical defense. Green Bay’s doesn’t come close to resembling that group, and standout runner LeSean McCoy (ribs) vows he will be back.Aaron Rodgers figures to throw a bunch this week, with Davante Adams now his top target.New York Jets (1-2) at Jacksonville (2-1)Coming off a loss that easily could linger, and with safety Jamal Adams saying the Jets weren’t prepared for Mayfield when he replaced Tyrod Taylor in Cleveland’s victory Nick Chubb Jersey , New York takes on ticked-off Jacksonville.The Jets have won four straight in this series, but those games were mostly against weak Jaguars teams. After the Jags struggled so much vs. Tennessee, they could take it out on rookie Sam Darnold with a sack-happy defense. And Darnold displayed happy feet against the Browns.New Orleans (2-1) at New York Giants (1-2)If Eli Manning gets protection, the Giants are competitive. That happened in last week’s win at Houston, and the Saints have been disappointing defending the pass.The excitement level ramps up in the running game as Giants rookie Saquon Barkley and the Saints’ Alvin Kamara, last year’s Offensive Rookie of the Year, face off. Also intriguing: Saints WR Michael Thomas leads the league with 38 catches and 398 yards receiving. His catch total is an NFL best in a team’s first three games. New York’s Odell Beckham Jr. has a respectable 24 receptions, even if that pales compared to Thomas.Seattle (1-2) at Arizona (0-3)Two teams with messed-up offenses, although the Seahawks look like an indomitable force compared to Arizona.The Cardinals rank dead last in all offensive categories and have scored a total of 20 points. Now, rookie Josh Rosen will start, and while Seattle’s defense no longer has legion-like boom, it can be tricky and ranks eighth against the pass.A win will tie Pete Carroll with Mike Holmgren for the most coaching victories in Seattle history (90).Houston (0-3) at Indianapolis (1-2)Houston probably is the most disappointing team in the NFL, having gotten back J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus and Deshaun Watson for injury, yet not winning at all. Indeed, the Texans‘ last victory came in November 2017.They rarely fare well with Indy, which has a 25-7 edge in the series. The Colts’ next win will be No. 300 since moving from Baltimore to Indianapolis in 1984.Adam Vinatieri needs one field goal to break Morten Andersen’s NFL record (565). Vinatieri also needs three field-goal attempts to pass Gary Anderson (672) for second all-time, and one game played to pass George Blanda (340) for No. 4.Can’t kick about that.___

    GREEN BAY Justin McCray Color Rush Jersey , Wis. — Mason Crosby survived one of the worst seasons of his career by putting together five of his best.The veteran Green Bay Packers kicker isn’t looking at what happened in 2012, when he made just 21 of 33 field-goal attempts, as a pathway to bouncing back from a nightmarish performance last week at Detroit.Crosby missed four field goals and an extra point, those 13 lost points looming large in a 31-23 loss Sunday. He had never missed more than two kicks in a game in his 12-year career.More Packers coveragePhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 – 7/27/19Packers rookie Gary’s biggest critic is himselfTop Tweets: Former Badger TJ Watt has impressive four-year transformationPHOTOS: 2019 Green Bay Packers training campPackers’ Rodgers, LaFleur ironing out offense, building chemistry“I look at what happened on Sunday as I’m lumping it into one kick, one entity,” Crosby said Friday. “That was a game, that was a moment, that I couldn’t have ever imagined happening, but it did happen and I can learn from it. I don’t reset, I don’t go looking for things. It’s more, all right, get back into it. What am I going to do better this week? How am I going to improve?“So far this week, it’s been good getting out at practice, hitting the ball, trusting that I’ve done this for 12 years in the NFL and a long time before that. What went down on Sunday is unacceptable for the career I’ve had, but it did happen and I’m going to be better off because of it.”That’s what the Packers are counting on heading into Monday night’s game against San Francisco.The Packers didn’t bring in any veteran kickers for a workout this week. Just like in 2012, they’re banking on Crosby’s body of work.“You talk about hitting a bump in the hit, I mean, he hit a boulder, for God’s sake,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “He’s the same guy. He’s working at it. Personally https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Marwin-Evans-Jersey , you root for a guy like Mason because he exemplifies what a Green Bay Packer is. He’ll be back to normal.”Change has become the new normal for Crosby.From 2010 through 2015, Crosby had the same snapper (Brett Goode) and holder (Tim Masthay). This marks the third consecutive season with a new operation, with Green Bay drafting JK Scott in the fifth round to handle the punting and holding and Hunter Bradley in the seventh to handle the snapping.Bradley has had a few off-target snaps, but the snapper-holder combination wasn’t to blame on any of Crosby’s five missed kicks.“I just couldn’t find the line,” Crosby said. “The ball wasn’t going through. I’m not going to overreact, overthink on it. The biggest disappointment for me was not doing my job in helping this team win. I need to make those kicks to help this team win. Honestly, whenever that happens, that’s what I feel the most is letting my teammates down.”Special teams coordinator Ron Zook likes what he has seen this week.“I think he’s probably a little bit more zoned-in,” he said. “Mason has always been a pro since I’ve been around him. I’m not one bit worried about him.”NOTESQB Aaron Rodgers was a full participant in practice after aggravating his injured left knee when tackled by Lions LB Christian Jones on the opening possession. “Kind of a step back to last week, the beginning of the week,” Rodgers said. He wore a new, lighter brace in that game and hopes he’ll be able to wear it again against the 49ers. … RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) and backup Jason Spriggs (ankle) were added to the injury report as limited participation. If Bulaga plays against San Francisco, he’ll line up next to RG Byron Bell, who has taken over that position for Justin McCray, who started the first three games. “Been consistent. He has a lot of experience,” coach Mike McCarthy said. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are universally regarded as two of the best quarterbacks of their generation.Brady has spent the better part of his 19 seasons in the NFL eclipsing virtually every milestone set by his predecessors. Along the way, he’s captured every major piece of hardware the league has to offer from multiple MVPs to Super Bowl titles, all while remaining at the top of his game at 41.Rodgers isn’t as decorated as Brady, but has been just as celebrated during his 14-year career for a free-wheeling style and an uncanny ability to pull off plays that have been rarely duplicated by his peers.Between them, they have five regular-season MVP awards, nine Super Bowl appearances and six Super Bowl rings.Yet when the Patriots host the Packers on Sunday night , it will mark just the second time that the future Hall of Famers have squared off as starting quarterbacks. Rodgers won the first meeting in 2014 in a game in which they combined for 613 passing yards and four touchdowns in Green Bay’s five-point victory at Lambeau Field.Rodgers capped that season by winning his second regular-season MVP trophy. Brady went on to hoist his fourth Super Bowl title.Watching each other’s success from afar has bred a deep respect between them. Rodgers for Brady’s longevity. Brady for the skillset Rodgers brings to the position.“Tom’s been at the top of his game for over a decade Jermaine Whitehead Jersey ,” Rodgers said. “Obviously, we play a little bit different style of game, but the stuff that he does well is stuff that over my career I’ve tried to incorporate into my own game.“I enjoy competing against great players and obviously Tom is right at the top.”It’s similar to how Brady describes Rodgers.“What he’s done as a quarterback, I think it is inspiring even for me,” Brady said. “I watch his game and it makes me want to get out there and practice and improve because I think he’s so phenomenal with the way he manages himself in the pocket and his ability to throw the football is unlike anyone probably in the history of the league.”Though he wants to play until he’s 45, Brady will presumably retire before Rodgers, leaving the 34-year-old time to narrow the gap between them in career numbers.But neither is interested in playing the hypothetical game about who the better quarterback is.“I don’t really try to get into the ‘what-if’ game,” Rodgers said. “I’m fortunate to have been drafted here and sit behind Brett (Favre) for three years. He was obviously drafted late there … so his chip might have been a little bit bigger than mine starting out his career.“There’s a lot of pride in that legacy part of your career, and I think him and I both feel the same way about our organizations.”Brady also called any similar debate about the greatest quarterback of all-time a fruitless endeavor. Though he knows one name that belongs on his list.“It’s hard to compare positions and eras. It’s impossible to answer,” Brady said. “I think Aaron is one of the best ever to play the game. He’s got every skill you need to be a great quarterback.”Here are some things to watch for in Sunday’s game:MILESTONE WATCHBrady enters Sunday’s game second in NFL history for the most combination passing, rushing and receiving yards in the regular-season and playoffs. Peyton Manning tops the list with 79,978 yards. Brady is next with 79,781.SAFETY DANCEThe trade of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix means that the Green Bay Packers are without a five-year starter at safety .Clinton-Dix, who led the team with three interceptions, was the most experienced player at a position that was still mired by inconsistency. Possible replacements include Jermain Whitehead, who missed practice at midweek with a back injury; or Josh Jones, a second-year player who missed time earlier this year with an ankle injury. Veteran cornerback Tramon Williams also has a couple games of experience playing safety while with the Browns a couple years ago. Cornerback Bashaud Breeland appears to be getting healthier from a hamstring injury and might be ready to play. The Packers didn’t acquire players at the trade deadline, a sign that general manager Brian Gutekunst might like the depth in the secondary even without Clinton-Dix.COMING A LONG WAYDavante Adams was a rookie the last time these teams played in 2014 at Lambeau Field. That 26-21 win by the Packers was a milestone game for Adams, now Green Bay’s No. 1 receiver.Adams had six catches for 121 yards in the game, taking advantage of more targets after the Patriots elected to blanket then-top wideout Jordy Nelson. Now the roles might be reversed, and Adams could be the player who gets extra attention. If that’s the case, it won’t be much different from what Adams has faced all year. Adams has had at least 132 yards receiving in each of the last three games.

    Joe Douglas for their general manager job.Douglas Patrick Kerney Color Rush Jersey , the Eagles' vice president of player personnel, is the third candidate to meet with New York about the opening. He met with team officials Saturday and Sunday.The Jets have also interviewed New Orleans Saints director of pro scouting Terry Fontenot and Seattle Seahawks co-director of player personnel Scott Fitterer. New York also is expected to meet with Champ Kelly, the Chicago Bears' assistant director of player personnel.Douglas is widely considered the favorite to land the job because he has previous work experience with Jets coach Adam Gase, who is the team's acting GM and is heavily involved in the search process. Douglas was Chicago's director of college scouting in 2015, when Gase was the Bears' offensive coordinator.Douglas has been with the Eagles for three years since leaving Chicago. He worked in Baltimore's personnel department from 2000-15 in various roles. Bobby Wagner leaped over the line of scrimmage, swatted Dan Bailey‘s field goal attempt and sparked the Seattle Seahawks to two late touchdowns.Whether or not what Wagner did was entirely legal, he frankly didn’t care.“I’m not stressing about that. I made the play. They called what they called,” Wagner said. “There’s times in games where things happen all the time. I’m not stressing on it. It was a big block and we’ll definitely take it. It was amazing.”Wagner’s block midway through the fourth quarter was the catalyst in a 21-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night that pushed Seattle to the brink of a playoff berth.Chris Carson followed the blocked kick with a 2-yard TD run with 2:53 left, and Justin Coleman capped off the Seahawks’ fourth straight victory with a 29-yard fumble return for a touchdown 18 seconds later.What was an ugly and mostly forgettable first three quarters turned into a Seattle party in the fourth as the Seahawks (8-5) moved to the brink of wrapping up a wild-card spot in the NFC. One win in Seattle’s final three games — including matchups with lowly San Francisco and Arizona — should be enough to put the Seahawks into the postseason.“It’s really about the defense. I loved the way they played, they played so hard and so spirited,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “It was almost poetic after last week’s game that Bobby would get to block the field goal and he pulled it off and did it. That was an incredible play.”Minnesota (6-6-1) twice had scoring chances in the fourth quarter when it was still a one-score game but was turned away each time. Minnesota’s chances of winning the NFC North took a major hit with its second straight loss, but the Vikings still hold the No. 6 spot in the NFC.“Part of it is being better on third downs. We haven’t really done a good job there. Part of it is being better in the red zone Germain Ifedi Color Rush Jersey ,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. “We had the ball on the 2-yard line and didn’t score.”But much of the conversation centered on Wagner’s block of Bailey’s 47-yard attempt with 5:38 left and whether it was entirely legal. Wagner’s jump through a gap in Minnesota’s offensive line was fine, but it appeared he used his teammates to gain leverage, which allowed him to come through and block the kick. A flag was initially thrown but was picked up by the officials.Wagner said he attempted it four times in practice without a problem but acknowledged it could be tough to pull off the play during the fourth quarter of a tight game.“When I did it in practice I was pretty fresh,” Wagner said.Zimmer said he asked for an explanation of what happened but wasn’t given one. He was told he couldn’t challenge.“Quite honestly, I didn’t see what happened. I was told what happened,” Zimmer said.Seattle took possession and Russell Wilson immediately scrambled 40 yards deep into Minnesota territory. Five plays later, Carson scored and Seattle finally had a cushion. Two plays after that, Jacob Martin sacked Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins and the ball popped to Coleman, who weaved his way for the clinching touchdown.Cousins threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Dalvin Cook with 1:10 remaining, but Seattle recovered the onside kick.“I feel like all of our losses we, as an offense, we are so slow Marshawn Lynch Color Rush Jersey ,” Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said. “Our defense is keeping us in games. And we’re not pulling our side of the bargain.”Wilson had one of the worst passing games of his career, completing 10 of 20 attempts for career-low 72 yards and a baffling interception late in the first half, one of the many mistakes by Seattle that allowed Minnesota to hang around. But Seattle’s ground game was outstanding against one of the better run defenses in the NFL. The Seahawks finished with 214 yards rushing, led by 90 yards from Carson.Sebastian Janikowski hit field goals of 37 and 35 yards to account for all of Seattle’s scoring until the closing minutes.“If you run it 40-something times, you ought to win. That was pretty good,” Carroll said.FOURTH QUARTER WOESMinnesota hung around despite failing to run a play in Seattle territory until there was 4:16 left in the third quarter. Cousins was 20 of 33 for 208 yards, most of that coming late. But he failed to get the Vikings into the end zone from inside the Seattle 5 while trailing 6-0 early in the fourth quarter.The Vikings had first-and-goal at the Seattle 4 but turned the ball over on downs with 9:06 remaining. Two short runs and an incompletion brought up fourth-and-goal at the 1, and Cousins’ pass for Kyle Rudolph was knocked away by Bradley McDougald. Bailey’s field goal was blocked on Minnesota’s next drive.REACHING 100Minnesota fell to 0-6 when allowing its opponents to run for at least 100 yards. The Vikings came in to the week giving up 99 yards per game on the ground, good for seventh-best in the NFL. Seattle had 136 yards rushing in the first half.OTHER CENTURY MARKThielen tied Cris Carter as the fastest Minnesota player to reach 100 receptions in a season, both accomplishing the feat in 13 games. Carter did it in 1994 when he finished the year with 122 catches. Thielen is the first Minnesota receiver to get to 100 catches since Randy Moss in 2003. But Thielen didn’t get his first catch until midway through the third quarter. He finished with five catches for 70 yards.UP NEXTMinnesota: The Vikings return home to host Miami on Sunday.Seattle: The Seahawks play their final road game Sunday at San Francisco.

    ORCHARD PARK Womens Dawson Knox Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have released underperforming and high-priced veteran tight end Charles Clay.The move was announced Friday, and did not come as a surprise after Clay’s playing time diminished behind Jason Croom and Logan Thomas over the final six weeks of last season. Clay had one season left on a five-year contract, and was due to make a $4.5 million base salary.Clay’s production dropped off considerably last year. In 13 games, the eighth-year player finished with 21 catches for 184 yards and no touchdowns, which were all lows during his four seasons in Buffalo. Overall, Clay had 339 catches for 1,822 yards and nine touchdowns in 54 games with the Bills.That’s not the type of production the team was expecting in luring Clay away from the Miami Dolphins by getting him to agree to sign a five-year, $38 million offer sheet.Though he missed only 10 games in Buffalo, nagging knee injuries limited Clay’s production and ability to practice. The free-spending Buffalo Bills are using their sizeable salary-cap space to provide quarterback Josh Allen an overhauled offense entering his second season.The Bills continued their major foray into free agency on Tuesday by agreeing to sign receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley and offensive linemen Ty Nsekhe and Jon Feliciano.A person with direct knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press that Brown agreed to a three-year, $27 million contract. A second person told the AP that Beasley agreed to a four-year Authentic Dawson Knox Jersey , $29 million contract. A third person said Feliciano agreed to a two-year contract.The people spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because the signings won't be official until the NFL's new year begins Wednesday.Nsekhe's agent, Vince Taylor, said his client agreed to a two-year, $14.5 million contract, with $7.7 million guaranteed.The deals come a day after the Bills agreed to sign center Mitch Morse, running back Frank Gore and tight end Tyler Kroft. Buffalo confirmed Tuesday that it signed cornerback Kevin Johnson to a one-year contract.The Bills' main focus has been addressing needs on offense to upgrade a unit that finished 30th in yards gained during Allen's rookie season and was hampered by a lack of established receivers and a patchwork offensive line.Buffalo entered the signing period with more than $70 million available to spend under the salary cap after spending the previous two offseasons purging its roster of high-priced players. The overhaul coincided with coach Sean McDermott's hiring in January 2017 and was followed by general manager Brandon Beane taking over five months later.Beane has taken a bold approach in rebuilding the Bills by spending the past two years trading away veterans — including defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, offensive tackle Cordy Glenn and quarterback Tyrod Taylor — and stockpiling draft picks.After a 6-10 finish, Beane in January said he intended to be "judicious" in filling holes in free agency, while continuing to add talent in the draft next month, when the Bills are scheduled to have 10 picks.Johnson Dawson Knox Jersey Boys , speaking on a conference call with reporters Tuesday, was impressed by the new additions."I think you can see this is a team on the rise," he said. "We're just trying to add to this culture, and they've got a good one in place. And like I am, I'm sure the other guys are ready to come in here and work."Brown is a speedy downfield threat, and Beasley is a proven underneath slot receiver. They join a team whose two top returning receivers were Zay Jones, entering his third year, and Robert Foster, an undrafted rookie last season.Brown had 42 catches for 715 yards and five touchdowns last year in his only season with the run-oriented Baltimore Ravens.The Bills targeted Brown in free agency a year ago, but he turned them down in part because Buffalo was unsettled at quarterback after trading away Taylor and before drafting Allen in the first round.Brown spent his first four seasons with Arizona White LeSean McCoy Jerseys , where he combined for 173 catches for 2,515 yards and 17 touchdowns. His best season was in 2015, when he had 65 catches for 1,003 yards and seven TDs.Beasley spent his first seven seasons with Dallas and had a 65 catches for 672 yards and three touchdowns last year. Beasley's most productive season was in 2016, when he had 75 catches for 833 yards and five touchdowns.Running back LeSean McCoy took notice of the offensive line additions by posting a note on his Twitter account that read: "It's always good signing fat boys hahahahah welcome welcome."Morse is listed at 6-foot-6 and 305 pounds, the 33-year-old Nsekhe is listed at 6-8 and 330 pounds, and Feliciano is 6-4 and 325 pounds. Nsekhe has five NFL seasons of experience dating to 2012 with the then-St. Louis Rams. He spent the past four seasons with Washington, where he had 16 starts in 54 games playing behind tackles Trent Williams and Morgan Moses, while also getting playing time at guard.Feliciano spent his first four seasons with Oakland, where he had eight starts in 48 career games. The Raiders selected him in the fourth round of the 2015 draft.Johnson joins a defense that allowed the second-fewest yards last season and will compete for the starting job opposite Tre'Davious White. Johnson's first four seasons in Houston were hampered by a series of injuries LeSean McCoy Jerseys 2019 , including a pair of concussions that forced him to miss the final 15 games of last season."All that stuff's behind me," he said. "I think I learned that I don't got any quit in me. I went through a lot of things, adversity as far as dealing with injuries. And every time, I came back strong from it."Johnson is reunited with Bills defensive backs coach John Butler, who held the same role in Houston from 2014-17.

    on Sunday but couldn’t finish the deal White Patrick Omameh Jerseys , falling to the Indianapolis Colts 28-27.A 1-yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to Chester Rogers gave the Colts their only lead of the day with 55 seconds left. That capped an eight-play, 53-yard scoring drive aided by Giants’ penalties on Tae Davis and B.W. Webb.An Eli Manning pass down the middle for Bennie Fowler was intercepted by Malik Hooker with 23 seconds left to end the Giants’ upset hopes.“We were just taking a shot down the field. We had three receivers up the field and they split the safeties on us and he tried to take a shot on them,” coach Pat Shurmur said of the interception. “I don’t fault that. We had to get the ball down the field anyways.”Manning finished 25-of-33 for 309 yards with a touchdown and an interception. “Those situations, you’re in a bit of – you’ve got to take a shot. You’ve got to take a chance and get a chunk play,” Manning said of the final throw. “I thought I threw a pretty good ball, but obviously not.”The Giants are 5-10. The Colts are 9-6.“It’s a tough game. You know they’re a good team and they have a good quarterback who can kind of score late on teams,” Manning said. “So I knew we were going to need to score more points. To not get a touchdown when we were down there that last time and had to settle for a field goal, it was tough. We got second-and-two from the five or six-yard line and then can’t get a first down. Then go backwards on second down. So we’ve got to do a better job there. Did a lot of good things throughout the course but obviously not just quite good enough.”The Giants played hard, which Shurmur had emphasized all week, but didn’t get the end result.“Right is right. You win or you lose and we didn’t win,” Shurmur said. “We will go back and we will clean up the film like we do every week and make corrections and move forward to Dallas. That’s what we’ll do. That’s the reality, that’s the big boy part of this – just keep working and you keep trying to get better and you keep trying to find ways to make plays at the end and both sides really all three sides.”“We were able to execute in the first half and we didn’t do that in the second half,” said Saquon Barkley, who had just 43 yards rushing on 21 carries.“Team fought hard and I take my hat off to the guys for that Patrick Omameh Jerseys 2019 ,” Sterling Shepard said. “We fought hard to the very end. Just came up a little short.”Moments that matteredFinal drive penalties: On the Colts’ game-winning drive, linebacker Tae Davis committed a pass interference penalty on an incomplete third-and-3 pass that gave Indianapolis a first down at the Giants’ 46-yard line. Later, B.W. Webb committed a holding penalty in the end zone to set Indianapolis up at the 1-yard line.Stopped in the red zone: The Giants drove the ball to the Indianapolis 7-yard line, but it remained a one-score game as the Giants settled for a 27-yard Aldrick Rosas field goal to make it 27-21 with 9:24 to playHolding on Jackrabbit: A correctly called holding penalty on Janoris Jenkins negated a B.J. Hill fumble recovery after a sack/fumble caused by Olivier Vernon at the Giants’ 15-yard line. Two plays later, the Colts scored a touchdown to close within 24-21 with :32 seconds left in the third quarter.Third-quarter answer: After Indianapolis had closed within 17-14 in the third quarter, the Giants drove 85 yards in eight plays to extend the lead to 24-14 with 3:46 left in the third quarter. The drive featured a third-and-five 8-yard pass to Evan Engram followed by a 32-yard completion to Engram that set up first-and-goal at the 1-yard line. Manning took it in from there on a quarterback sneak.Curtis Riley with a pick: With Indianapolis trying to respond to the Giants’ fast start, Riley picked off an Andrew Luck pass in the end zone after the Colts had driven to the Giants’ 26-yard line. The interception, with 12:27 left in the half, kept the Giants’ 14-0 lead intact.Two possessions, two touchdowns: The Giants scored touchdowns on their first two possessions, taking a 14-0 lead with 1:41 left in the first quarter. Saquon Barkley finished an 11-play, 75-yard drive with a 1-yard scoring run and an Eli Manning to Scott Simonson 3-yard pass finished off a 9-play, 87-yard drive to make the score 14-0 with 1:49 to play in the first quarter.Injury updatesGiants’ defensive end Mario Edwards suffered a calf injury in the first quarter and did not return. That left the Giants short-handed as Kerry Wynn (thumb) was inactive.The Giants lose tight end Rhett Ellison with a concussion in the third quarter.What’s next?The Giants will finish their season by hosting the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium in a 1 p.m. ET game.Giants practice report, 8/14: A Detroit writer’s takeaways from today’s workouts Hey White Mario Edwards Jerseys , Giants fans! My name is Jeremy Reisman and I’m the managing editor over at Pride of Detroit, the SB Nation blog for the Detroit Lions. I’m here at the request of your glorious leader Ed Valentine to bring you personal observations from Tuesday’s joint practices between the Lions and Giants. While I’m sure many of you know the Giants a little better than I do, I think I’ll be able to put the Giants’ performance into context in a unique way, considering I know a lot about the players they’re going against. With that in mind, and a little guidance as to what may interest you, here are some observations from Tuesday’s practice about the Giants, but from a Lions point of view.Slay vs. BeckhamLet’s be honest, you were going to skip to this section first, so I may as well lead with it. We’ve seen Odell Beckham Jr. and Darius Slay face off twice before, but both matchups underwhelmed. In the first, Slay left the game in the first half with an injury. In the second, Beckham was coming off an injury of his own and didn’t quite look like himself.Tuesday, both looked full speed, and I must admit Mario Edwards Jerseys 2019 , Beckham got the better of Slay. The 2017 Pro Bowl cornerback has looked unbeatable in all of training camp, but it’s clear he hasn’t been lined up against anyone the likes of Beckham. Odell wasn’t completely dominant, but he consistently had a step on Slay and Eli Manning was able to find him more often than not.Also, during individual drills Beckham roasted rookie undrafted free agent Chris Jones for a bomb, which isn’t a nice thing to do to a guy with no chance of making the team.Kyle Lauletta getting the rookie treatmentI heard y’all have a backup quarterback battle brewing, and nothing grabs more headlines than a backup QB battle.Well, on Tuesday, it didn’t look like much of a battle. It’s not that Kyle Lauletta looked bad—he didn’t. It’s that the Giants barely gave him a shot. During one-one-one drills, Lauletta was busy checking down to running backs against linebackers, while Eli and Davis Webb were throwing bombs to the wide receivers vs. corners.And when it came to full 11-on-11 drills, I could count the amount of reps for Lauletta on two hands. Toward the end of practice, each team (first, second, and third) got a single drive against the opposing defense. Lauletta didn’t even get a full drive. He split it with Alex Tanney.As for Webb White Kerry Wynn Jerseys , he had a very inconsistent day. He threw a couple deep dimes during the one-on-ones, but when it came to the full 11-on-11s, he looked much more uncomfortable. He sailed a handful of passes Tuesday, and when the Lions came with an A-gap blitz, you could see the panic in Webb, as he sailed a pass well over the receiver’s head and was nearly intercepted.It’s hard for me to give an honest review of Lauletta at this point in considering the very limited sample size, but it’s clear to me the Giants coaching staff isn’t ready to hand the fourth-round rookie too many responsibilities at this point.Saquon looks fineI’m no doctor, but I wouldn’t expect Saquon Barkley to miss any time once the regular season rolls around. Though he obviously didn’t practice on Tuesday, he did just about everything else the coaches would let him. He was even sporting pants and a helmet—missing only the shoulder pads.You can see above, he went through the motions of position drills early in the day before taking the rest of practice off.Overall thoughtsWhile I’m not going to sit here and tell you Team A was better than Team B, I will say that the Giants were able to control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball when the first teams were facing off. Jonathan Stewart seemed to slip through considerably-sized holes on a fairly regular basis. While that isn’t all that surprising from Detroit’s point of view—the Lions’ front seven is the team’s biggest weakness—it’s definitely good news for the Giants.When the Lions had the ball, the trenches were a little more evenly matched. Though the Lions running game continued to struggle, Matthew Stafford sat pretty comfortably in the pocket for much of the day. However, when it the second and third teams took the field Kerry Wynn Jerseys 2019 , it was clear the Lions’ offensive line depth was no match for the Giants’ defensive line depth.However, the Lions’ skill position evened out the day. Marvin Jones Jr. and Kenny Golladay made some impressive catches over Eli Apple and Curtis Riley. Additionally, the Lions running backs—specifically Theo Riddick and rookie Kerryon Johnson—were giving Giants linebackers fits in the passing game. To be fair, those guys have been embarrassing Lions linebackers all camp, too.As for Eli Manning, I came away more impressed than not. He has a pretty clear command of the offense and looked decisive and comfortable the entire day. Perhaps it was just the juxtaposition next to Webb, but there was a certain command to the offense when Manning was in that made the Giants look efficient. The same can’t be said when Webb was i.However, Manning’s day ended with a poor read on a two-minute drill, leading to an interception by Lions safety Glover Quin. That’s the Eli Manning I know.If you want my Lions observations from Tuesday’s practice, head over to Pride of Detroit.Our thanks to Jeremy for the extra work he has done for us here. Hope you all appreciate it.

    the eighth rematch in Super Bowl history.Good news for the Patriots: The team that won the previous matchup is 4-3. New England defeated the Rams Youth John Hannah Jerseys , then in St. Louis, 20-17 back in 2002.Pittsburgh and Dallas have met three times. Pittsburgh won the first rematch, a 35-31 thriller in Super Bowl 13. Then, 17 years later, Dallas defeated the Steelers 27-17.Other rematches:—Redskins 27, Dolphins 17 in Super Bowl 17; a rematch of Miami‘s perfection-capping victory in Super Bowl 7.—Giants 21, Patriots 17 in Super Bowl 46; a rematch of New York’s win, which spoiled New England’s run at an undefeated season John Hannah Jerseys Stitched , four years earlier.—Cowboys 30, Bills 13 in Super Bowl 38; a rematch of Dallas’ crushing of the Bills the previous year.—Eagles 41, Patriots 33 in Super Bowl 52; a rematch of New England’s win in Super Bowl 39. MIAMI (AP) — Ryan Tannehill was heading out the door when someone noted the predicted high temperature of 83 for Sunday’s game between the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots.“Not quite hot enough,” Tannehill responded with a smile.Turn up the heat. That’s what the Dolphins tend to do when the Patriots play in Miami.While New England has dominated Miami — and everyone else — in the AFC East over the past decade, the reverse has been true lately when the teams meet in South Florida.The Dolphins have won four of the past five home meetings, including 27-20 last December when Jay Cutler outplayed Tom Brady.Oddsmakers expect the trend to end, with New England (9-3) a touchdown favorite over Miami (6-6).Here are things to know as the Patriots attempt to clinch their 10th consecutive division title:TOUGH PLACE TO PLAYIn recent years the Patriots have had worse results in Miami than anywhere else, and New England coach Bill Belichick blames the Dolphins.“They’ve got a good football team Infant Joejuan Williams Jersey ,” he said. “They’ve got a lot of good players.”That’s fine, coach, except that in Foxborough, your team has won 10 in a row against Miami by an average score of 33-13. That includes a 38-7 victory earlier this season. And in the standings, the Dolphins have been perennial also-rans to your dynasty.Belichick and his players discount the South Florida climate as a factor, but it does favor the Dolphins, with teams from the north tending to wilt in the warm weather.“Sometimes it hits some of these teams pretty hard,” Miami coach Adam Gase said.The bad news for the Dolphins is that forecasters don’t anticipate the heavily favored Patriots will take the game lightly — not with the annoyance this week of constant questions about their recent results in Miami.“The last few times we’ve played them down there Joejuan Williams Jersey Draft , we haven’t played very well,” running back James White acknowledged, “so I think that’s enough motivation.”ANOTHER CHANCEAfter a quiet day when the teams met in September, Miami receiver Danny Amendola is itching for another crack at his former team, but he has been nursing a knee injury and missed last week’s win over Buffalo.Amendola became one of Brady’s favorite targets during his five seasons in New England. He is in his first year with Miami after signing a $12 million, two-year contract and leads the team in catches and yards receiving.Patriots safety Patrick Chung said Amendola was always a handful in practice.“Danny’s the man,” Chung said. “He’s a small dude, but he’s stronger than you think and he’s feisty. He’s going to be ready for us.”EVOLVING IDENTITYEarly this season Joejuan Williams NFL Jersey , opponents took advantage of a New England defense that struggled to get pressure up front and was susceptible in the secondary to big plays. The Patriots appear to be tightening up at the right time. They haven’t allowed a 300-yard passer in five consecutive games, or a 100-yard rusher in nine consecutive games.That’s a vast improvement for a unit that gave up 30 or more points three times in the first seven games, including a season-high 40 in narrow win over Kansas City.Belichick said the improvement is part of an evolving identity in the first season with linebackers coach Brian Flores making defensive calls.COMEBACK QBTannehill has a passer rating of 112.7 with five touchdowns and one interception in two games since returning from an injury to his throwing shoulder. The performances come amid growing speculation about whether the Dolphins will bring him back next season.“I have a long way to go to get where I want to be,” he said. “I think I’m doing all right, but a lot of plays I’d like to be better at. I think we have a lot better football in front of us as an offense.”MILESTONE WATCHBrady enters Sunday tied with Peyton Manning for the most touchdown passes in NFL history, including playoffs.Manning and Brady both have 579 TD tosses, followed by Brett Favre (552) and Drew Brees (547). The 508 regular-season touchdown passes by Brady and Favre trail Manning (539) and Brees (518) on the career list.

    new center against the Jets and they also may be making a change at right tackle.Coach Pat Shurmur said Thursday it's likely Spencer Pulley is going to replace Jon Halapio at center for the braggin' rights game Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The status of right tackle Mike Remmers also is in question after his missed his second straight workout with a back problem.This would mark the first time this season the Giants (2-7) have had a different starting lineup on the line.Nick Gates would have to make his first career start if Remmers can't play.Pulley started nine games at center last year after Halapio sustained a major leg injury early in the 2018 season.Shurmur said Halapio is a ways away with a hamstring injury sustained Monday night in a 37-18 loss to Dallas."But the good news for us is http://www.jetslockerroom.com/authentic-jamal-adams-jersey , in my mind, I feel like we have two starting centers on our team," Shurmur said.Shurmur said Remmers can't shake soreness from the Monday night game.Wide receiver Sterling Shepard remained in the concussion protocol and will likely miss his fifth straight game, and sixth overall. Tight end Evan Engram (foot) also did not practice and his status is certainly in doubt..One interesting tidbit for the game is Saquon Barkley's father, Alibay, is a long-time fan of the Jets (1-7) and has a team tattoo.Saquon Barkley is sure his father will root for the Giants, but he thinks his parent will wear green."That's going to be an interesting one, but I gave it to him because it's a Joe Namath jersey," Saquon Barkley said. "I think I got him that jersey actually, the Joe Namath one. But at the end of the day, I knew this situation was going to come up one day Brian Winters Jersey , but I'm happy for him. I was a Jets fan growing up, too, so it's fun. It's going to be a little fun competition in the Barkley house." Our man Joe Douglas has been fairly quiet the past few months, making minor moves while mainly letting the team show its strengths and weaknesses. To be brutally honest the strengths are few and the weaknesses abound, but Joe vowed to bring bring greatness to Jets NationRemember his welcoming press conference? He said: We haven’t been too proud as of late.So if you take Joe at his word, he has been a veritable clandestine whirling dervish of conclave activity in sub rosa. The only thing we know for sure right now is that Allen Iverson will not be joining the Jets anytime soon. Joe should have a good idea how he wants to proceed with the roster.He has made some minor moves recently in re-signing Steve McLendon to a one year extension and long snapper Thomas Hennessy to a new four year contract. Both could be seen as quality moves. Hennessy gives stability to the special teams, and McLendon is a low cost solid performer who is a positive voice in the locker room. But resigning a aging vet or a guy who snap a ball a long way accurately between his legs alone will not bring this team championships any time soon. No, Joe was brought here to make the tough decisions and the appropriate determinations of talent as they pertain to the Jets roster. He can accelerate the process if he wisely deals with teams searching for pieces to their Playoff rosters while he is getting surplus value for those players.Time is running out for that process as the NFL trade deadline is fast approaching on October 29th at 4pm EST. How Joe does in the next few days will go a long way in determining the future of this dormant franchise. A wise trade or non-trade might be a difference between a swift return to Playoff contention or a long wait to be competitive. If the Jets should happen to make a coaching change in the near future, they will need as many picks as possible to transform the team into a viable likeness of the new coach’s vision of a team.Numerous trades have already taken place with Mohamed Sanu going to the Patriots for a 2nd round pick, Gareon Conley to Houston for a 3rd round pick, and Emmanuel Sanders and a 7th round pick to the San Francisco for a 3rd and 4th round picks.Quandre Diggs and a 7th went to Seattle for a 5th round pick. Marcus Peters went to Baltimore for LB Kenny Young and a 5th round pick. Austin Corbett went to the Rams for a 5th round pick.The big trade was Jalen Ramsey to the Rams for a 2020 1st round Womens Wayne Chrebet Jersey , 2021 1st and 4th round picks. Additionally Minkah Fitzpatrick, a 2020 4th + 2021 7th round picks went to Pittsburgh for a 2020 1st and a 2021 5th + 6th round picks. Let’s look at the Jets players who are worthy of trade proposals and the free agents who could bring the most bang for the buck.Almost half the roster (23 players) will be unrestricted free agents so there is work to be done.Players the Jets should re-sign nowAlex Lewis GuardA cheap pickup who has played surprisingly well on an offensive line with few bright spots. Lewis has had injury problems in the past but seems healthy now and he is still only 26 years old. He brings size and some versatility to the line, and would at worse be a quality backup on a future Jets top 5 offensive line.Lac Edwards PunterEdwards was one of the best selections the Jets made in the 2016 Draft after they whiffed with their top two picks. Edwards should be easy to sign, and the Jets would know what they have in their punter since he has been here for his entire career.Sam Ficken KickerWe can wait to see how Ficken does the rest of the year, but assuming he does well it would be nice to go into 2020 camp with a kicker the Jets had some confidence in. They would avoid the fiasco that was the kicking position earlier in the year. Again the contract would be cheap with little guaranteed money. Matthias Farley Strong SafetyWe have seen little of Farley other than as a special teamer. He was a starter in Indianapolis earlier in his career and is a quality backup for Jamal Adams. The strong safety position is a important position in a Gregg Williams’ defense, and it would be nice to have someone familiar with the scheme. Again, he should be relatively inexpensive. Ty Montgomery Running BackIn a future offense where Le’veon Bell is the centerpiece it would be nice to have a player with Montgomery’s skill set as a backup in case of injury. Montgomery is still only 27 years old and is great out of the backfield. He also plays special teams. He may be a little expensive as compared to other backups but he will not break the bank. Plus his position is unique to the Jets, Bell is not an easy back to replace even for a short period of time. Brian Poole CornerbackPoole plays a premium position. Even though the Jets secondary is a weak spot on the team Poole has shown well most of the time. He is only 27 years old, and finding solid slot corners is difficult to do. When you have one who is viable, you should keep him. Poole has one of the highest PFF grades of any cornerback in the NFL so bringing him back, especially at a team friendly deal is a no-brainer. Player who the Jets may bring backDemaryius Thomas WRThomas would be a veteran presence in the WR room. He has played with and was highly respected by Peyton Manning.He is on the downside of his career http://www.jetslockerroom.com/authentic-quincy-enunwa-jersey , but he would be a coach on the field for a young group of receivers the Jets may have in the future. Plus he can still play better than any JAG receiver you may bring in. Rontez MilesFree SafetyAnother veteran presence who plays well on special teams, Miles is 31 and is coming off a big payday from Mike Maccagnan ($1,907,000) so he would need to take a pay cut.Brandon Copeland EdgeCopland just came off suspension so we will need to see how he plays the rest of the year.He is another Maccagnan bonus baby ($1,750,000) with mild production. His play the rest of the year and his salary demands will make the determining factor for a guy who has played a grand total of 39 snaps so far this year. Neville Hewitt Inside LinebackerHewitt had a good first game of the year and played nearly every snap the first four games but has been nicked up with neck and knee injuries.His play has tailed off some as the year has progressed but he is still only 27 and could be a valuable asset for the right price.Jordan Jenkins EdgeJenkins is not an every down player for the defense but still gets about 60-75% of the snaps.It would be interesting to see how he is valued by Gregg Williams. Jenkins is just 26 years old and should have his best years ahead of him. He is a type of player who could be valued by the Jets or traded to another team for Draft capital. We will have to see how this plays out. Players who have true trade valueLeonard Williams Interior LinemanLike it or not, Leonard Williams has been a solid if unspectacular player for the Jets. At 26 years old he is still an ascending player, but his ceiling will likely never reach his Draft position. That is where the animosity of Jets fans emanates from. He is still a solid citizen and a quiet but positive locker room voice. Salary will be a key, and the Jets really don’t need to spend more money on the defensive line. I have not heard anything about contract talks. If that is so, the Jets should trade Williams soon. If Mohamed Sanu was worth a 2nd round pick Leonard Williams is worth more, especially to a Playoff needy team. Robby Anderson Wide ReceiverI actually highlighted Robby as a possible UDFA pickup before the 2016 Draft and have written other pieces on him over the years. I like Robby as a player Trenton Cannon Jersey , but I feel that if the Jets could get a quality package of picks, they should trade him.I realize that Robby has led the Jets in receiving the past two years and his leaving would leave the cupboard fairly bare for the offense. Still, the Jets are going nowhere this year, and Robby will probably be lost in free agency. Why not get something for him? The Jets will probably sign a few free agents next year so a compensatory pick would probably not be available to them for losing RobbyRobby is a great #2 WR in the mold of a Will Fuller but he will never be a #1 WR,. He is just not physically strong enough to play through quality press coverage and/or be a high volume receiver. The Jets don’t have a true #1 WR to aument Robby’s skills so he is a hit or miss player with the team. Vyncint Smith could fill his role in the future while the Jets use the picks they get from the trade to fortify their team.Other Free AgentsRyan Kalil CenterKalil was a nice try but at 35 years old he is not near the player he once was.Kelvin Beachum TackleBeachum is probably not in the future plans for the Jets, and considering he is now injured the chance they could have traded him has disappeared. Trevor Siemian QuarterbackA player who was grossly overpaid to be a backup and failed miserably when called upon, I hope Joe D sees the error of Adam Gase’s ways and says bye-bye.Tom Compton GuardWith the offensive line being a complete disaster this year, the fact that Compton has played a grand total of 4 snaps is all you need to know how the Jets feel about him.Brent Qvale TackleHow Qvale is still even on this team or any team is a mvstery.Ryan Griffin Tight EndGriffin is 30 which means he makes above $1 million in salary which is too much for his production. The offseason should see some new blood at TE for the Jets.Daniel Brown Tight EndAnother low ceiling player who the Jets could replace. Tight end is a tough place to find quality so he conceivablycould be back in 2020.Bilal Powell Running BackI always liked Powell as a player and still don’t know why he wasn’t given more opportunities in the past. He always produced. Sadly those days are gone and his years of service make him too expensive to be a #3 RB on this team. It was nice to see him come back to full health from his neck injury. A quality back and a quality Jet, I wish him well.Albert McClellan ILBA special teamer pressed into duty because of injuries, McClellan is 34, and his best playing days are behind him. The Jets need to find another Cashman in this upcoming draft to backup this year’s Cashman and Mosley.Brandon Shell TackleA player who was a starter on the Jets as a 5th round selection but has a skill set as a career backup Womens Jordan Jenkins Jersey , Shell is the guy you always want to replace and upgrade. It is too bad Maccagnan never drafted anyone to replace him. He could come back as a backup, but I see the Jets moving on. I would trade him for a bag of chips now if I could get it.Most of the other players on the team would have little trade value comparable to the value they have to the team right now. A Brian Winters could be moved. He would also bring little in Draft capital in return and leave a gaping hole on the offensive line, putting Sam Darnold in greater danger.Joe, the ball is in your court, and Jets Nation is awaiting your next move. We are expecting great things. Show us a little something. We have only 6 picks in the 2020 Draft. We want to see you shine so if you could add two or three to that total it could be glorious. What do you think the Jets should do?

    EAGAN Ben Gedeon Jersey , Minn. — Over his first few months on the job as offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings, John DeFilippo diligently worked on developing his system around the skill-position pillars he inherited and learning the strengths and weaknesses of his new players.DeFilippo also held some frank offseason conversations with head coach Mike Zimmer about how the Philadelphia Eagles so successfully attacked his scheme. This weekend, those tips will finally come in handy for Zimmer and the rest of Minnesota’s defense.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 TeamThe Vikings visit the Eagles on Sunday in a rematch of the NFC championship game that sent them home humbled after a 38-7 defeat. DeFilippo was the quarterbacks coach for the team that went on to win the Super Bowl, earning him a ring for his trophy case and a promotion with Minnesota.Much is at stake for the Vikings (1-2-1), beyond any superficial desire for revenge. They’re already behind in what promises to be another ultra-competitive NFC playoff race.For all the proficiency that Kirk Cousins has displayed passing the ball to Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, the Vikings have had unreliable protection in front of him and also failed to run the ball with any consistency. DeFilippo, naturally http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/authentic-mackensie-alexander-jersey , will face another critical test of his play-calling acumen on the road in one of the most difficult stadiums for a visiting team to play in.There’s more to this game than that for him, though. The Eagles, despite only serving two years under head coach Doug Pederson, were the team that raised the 40-year-old DeFilippo’s profile as an up-and-coming head coach candidate. Pederson helped teach him the value of outside-the-box and aggressive thinking.“If you were doing your job, he let you run with it, take something and make it better,” DeFilippo said, “and that was my goal every day.”Don’t forget that Philadelphia Womens Adam Thielen Jersey , too, is DeFilippo’s de facto hometown. He was a star quarterback at suburban Radnor High School, while his father was the athletic director at Villanova. Going to Eagles training camp or attending Monday night games at Veterans Stadium was a standout memory from his youth. Stepping inside Lincoln Financial Field will be a moving moment for DeFilippo, for sure.“I’m human. You know it will be,” DeFilippo said, adding: “Once the game starts, it’s going to be like any other game. But I have nothing but respect for everyone there in that building. Just like this building, there are some really phenomenal people.”The early returns on DeFilippo’s presence with the Vikings have produced similar sentiments.“He’s done a phenomenal job Mike Remmers Jersey ,” Thielen said. “He just loves the game of football. He wants us to do well on the field, and that goes for everybody on offense. That’s what you want in a coach. You want a guy who cares a lot about you and wants to have success as a team, not just as an offense.”Minnesota Vikings Injury Report: Team is healthy heading to Green Bay Through the preseason and one game, the Minnesota Vikings are about as healthy as anyone could expect as they head into their big early season showdown with the Green Bay Packers.Although DE Everson Griffen appeared on the injury report yesterday with a toe, he’ll play. CB Mac Alexander, who missed last week’s opener, and starting CB Trae Waynes, who went out in the second quarter with a knee injury http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/authentic-marcus-sherels-jersey , will also play. As a matter of fact, the only player that won’t suit up is C Pat Elflein, who was officially ruled out:That’s it. And according to the team, he’s expected back soon, and according to Mike Zimmer, is ‘very close’ to returning. In the most recent injury report for the Green Bay Packers, though, things are a bit different Womens Brian O'Neill Jersey , as they have two big injuries they’re dealing with right now. WR Davante Adams was a limited participant in practice, but seems to be improving. Of course the big news is the status of QB Aaron Rodgers, who heroically led the Green Bay Packers to a stirring lucky victory after losing both legs in the Battle of Passchendaele injuring his knee in the first half against the juggernaut 53 man choke job that is Mitchell Trubisky and the Chicago Bears: Khalil Mack could’ve made that throw, I bet...

This week sees the official start of the 2019 season, as players report and practice begins on Thursday. When they do so, they will have one new starter on the offensive line, but that single swap should make a significant difference.Billy Turner’s arrival from Denver comes with less fanfare than the Packers’ three defensive free agent signings. However, he could have just as big an impact, if not more Justin McCray Jersey , compared to any of those three individuals given the quality (or lack thereof) of play by the Packers’ right guards in 2018.In particular, Turner had an impressive streak in the second half of last season as a pass-protector, keeping Broncos quarterbacks clean while largely suiting up at left guard. As long as he can maintain that level of play on the right side — which he has played plenty in the past — Green Bay should again have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL.And his new quarterback knows it.Packers OL Billy Turner didn’t allow a sack over final 7 games of 2018 | Packers WireTurner had a remarkable run in pass-protection down the stretch last season, which undoubtedly played into the Packers giving him a big contract. He allowed just one hit and no sacks in the last two months or so.Aaron Rodgers says Billy Turner is a 'great addition for us' | 247sportsMeanwhile, Rodgers continues to go out of his way to pump up Turner to the media. Clearly he feels like the weak link on last year's line has been fixed.Inbox: More important is how they bounce back | Packers.comMike Spofford's mailbag addresses questions about the proposed 17-game regular season, the Texans joining the Packers on bicycles, and Green Bay's throwback uniforms. This is a good one.Kendrick Norton: Dolphins waive and will pay salary to DT who lost arm | SI.comThis is a classy move by the Dolphins -- rather than cutting him outright Womens Josh Jones Jersey , Miami put Norton on the reserve/non-football injury list, which will allow him to collect his full salary and benefits through the rest of this year.Bears' Clinton-Dix (knee) will likely start on PUP | ESPNI'm presenting this without comment.How to stroke a cat, according to science | The ConversationCats aren't aloof, you're just petting them improperly. This makes me think of this classic Principal Skinner moment: It was a relatively quiet NFL debut for Rashan Gary. Expectations have been all over the place for the Green Bay Packers’ first draft pick in 2019, but a quiet preseason certainly had his doubters feeling justified. Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’s comments about finding a role for Gary in the regular season probably did not help matters either.Then when he finally took the field, Gary played just six snaps against the Chicago Bears as the clear fourth player in the outside linebacker rotation. When Za’Darius Smith shifted inside to rush the passer, it was usually Kyler Fackrell coming on to play on the edge rather than Gary.However Josh Jackson Jersey White , in those six snaps, Gary did some very good things, which should lead to some additional reps moving forward. Furthermore, the next opponent runs an offense that should lead to more opportunities for Gary, whose strength in college was setting the edge against the run and eating up blockers. Facing a Minnesota Vikings team that wants to focus on the run game, Pettine could well utilize Gary on base downs to keep Dalvin Cook and Minnesota’s ground attack at bay.Here are some of the newsworthy items from around Packers-related media and the NFL.Packers rookie Rashan Gary needs more snaps after encouraging debut | Packers WireGary played just six snaps last Thursday, but he recorded two pressures on Mitchell Trubisky. Getting him work on some stunts like the ones we saw with Preston and Za’Darius Smith might be a perfect way to get him worked into the game plan more significantly.Packers will see a lot different Minnesota team on offense | Packers.comGary may be needed because of the next opponent as well. The Vikings fired OC John DeFilippo late last season and went with a run-heavy approach http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-mason-crosby-jersey , and Gary Kubiak now is running the show and will assure that continues. Packers’ JK Scott controls field position with precision punting | Packersnews.comScott has taken a huge step forward in his second year and appears to be justifying the faith that the Packers placed in him by making him a fifth-round draft pick.

Simpson’s jersey, Steve Tasker, Eric WoodOn the latest episode of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast, host John Boccacino offers his thoughts on a newsy week out of One Bills Drive, discussing the injury suffered by presumed starting tight end Tyler Kroft, the decision to bring O.J. Simpson’s No. 32 jersey back into the mix, and news on a pair of former Bills who work in the media. Kroft Jeremy Kerley Jerseys 2019 , who signed a three-year deal this offseason with the Bills, suffered a broken foot on the opening day of Organized Team Activities (OTAss) and is expected to miss between 3-4 months, putting his status for opening day (Sept. 8 vs. the New York Jets) in severe jeopardy. With Kroft on the shelf the next few months, there are now opportunities for Jason Croom, Lee Smith, and rookies Dawson Knox, Tommy Sweeney, and even Moral Stephens and Mik’Quan Deane to step up and contribute. Shifting gears, Boccacino discusses the decision for the Bills to issue Simpson’s No. 32 jersey, which had been unofficially retired and out of use for 42 years, to special teamer/running back Senorise Perry for the 2019 season. While Simpson’s on-field accomplishments were legendary White Micah Hyde Jerseys , they have been tarnished by his off-field antics, including a double-murder trial in 1995 (Simpson was acquitted), and a conviction in 2007 of armed robbery.Despite those off-field issues, Simpson’s name sits on the Bills’ Wall of Fame, and his No. 32 jersey is still retired at USC. Simpson is in both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and College Football Hall of Fame—honors befitting one of the game’s greatest running backs who was named the NFL’s most valuable player in 1973, and was a five-time, first-team All-Pro as a member of the Bills.The decision to award the No. 32 to a current player is sure to draw mixed reactions among Bills fans. But then again, maybe by assigning No. 32 to an unassuming player like Perry represents a shift in the team’s mentality and demonstrates that the jersey doesn’t hold the same significance as it did in the ‘70s, when Simpson was galloping and gliding his way to glory?Our podcast wraps up discussing job changes for former Bills Eric Wood and Steve Tasker.

How would Jawaan Taylor fit with Buffalo?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections NewsNotesOpinionAnalysisDiscussionPodcastNFL DraftSalary CapNFL DraftAnalysisNotesJawaan Taylor could be the dominant blocker the Buffalo Bills need on their offensive lineNew,21commentsHow would Jawaan Taylor fit with Buffalo?EDTShareTweetShareShareJawaan Taylor could be the dominant blocker the Buffalo Bills need on their offensive lineWhen the Buffalo Bills began their offseason, no area of the team was a larger need than offensive line. Since that time, the group has been completely overhauled, but many of those players are signed to short-term prove-it contracts. There’s still room for a highly talented player to come into the room and establish himself as a long-term starter.At offensive tackle in particular, Dion Dawkins is entering the third season of his four-year rookie deal. He’s been playing left tackle, but he’s not locked into that spot. Ty Nsekhe on a two-year deal, LaAdrian Waddle on a one-year deal, and backups Jeremiah Sirles and Conor McDermott are the main competition for offensive tackle right now.Florida tackle Jawaan Taylor might have the talent to be Buffalo’s first-round pick. He’s an excellent athlete and has an encouraging mix of run-blocking and pass-blocking skills.Team FitThe way that Taylor would best fit with Buffalo’s “process” can be summed up with his weight. From 380 lbs as a high-school junior, Taylor dropped to 312 lbs four years later when he weighed in at the NFL Combine. He put in the work to transform his body and it paid off. He’s also a cold-blooded killer when blocking on the field.Taylor was benched for a single series due to a violation of team rules White Patrick DiMarco Jerseys , but that was his only infraction. He also made the SEC All-Academic Roll in 2018.Taylor doesn’t quite have the gargantuan size of the 6’8” 330-lb Ty Nsekhe, but the 6’5” 312-lb tackle has a massive wingspan and would comfortably fit within Buffalo’s prototype thresholds at offensive tackle.As a player who only played right tackle (aside from a two-game stint at left tackle), Taylor doesn’t match up with all of Brandon Beane’s quotes about “versatility” on the offensive line. Most of Buffalo’s linemen were cross-trained with at least two positions, so Taylor is a bit behind the curve in that regard.Player ComparisonLance Zierlein of NFL.com compared Taylor to former first-round pick Vernon Carey. The 6’5” 340-lb tackle started 107 games in his career for the Miami Dolphins. In terms of measurements, another good fit might be Morgan Moses. Moses measured 6’6” and 314 lbs, with 35 3/8” arms—and he’s started four seasons at right tackle in Washington.Sample play: Swap Trick Right Up 16 Boad (aka Fly Sweep)Jawaan Taylor’s athleticism will really shine when running plays can put him on the move and ask him to block fast players in space. This running play, a designed fly sweep, is a great example. It’s not an easy assignment for Taylor—he’s asked to combo block the three-technique defensive tackle, then climb to the second level and block the weak-side linebacker. A pulling guard, working with the tight end, hopes to take out the defensive end Patrick DiMarco Jerseys 2019 , while the TE or RB needs to block the strong-side linebacker.If everyone blocks well, including those crucial second-level blocks, then the flanker receiver (John Brown coming across the formation) will have a wide-open lane to run through.In this day and age, right tackle is almost as valuable as left tackle on an offensive line. Taylor has the upside to eventually be a Pro Bowler at the position, but the Bills might have a logjam at the position in 2019 if they draft him. If that can be worked out, Taylor might be the long-term blocker Buffalo needs in front of Josh Allen.

    White Dalvin Tomlinson Jerseys , including two in the first round and six of the first 132 selections.There’s been a lot of talk about whether they’ll use some of that capital to get a young quarterback and Eli Manning said on Monday that he expects the team to go that route. Head coach Pat Shurmur wouldn’t reveal that information during his own press conference, but he did say that the team is heading into next week with an eye on restocking the front line of their defense.Shurmur was asked if the team hopes to land two or three defensive starters.“That is the idea,” Shurmur said. “We have some high picks Dalvin Tomlinson Jerseys 2019 , so you look to get some guys that can help. A lot of times, guys that are significant role players function in roles as starters. We are looking at everyone we pick to be able to contribute. That is the exciting thing about the draft. There are plenty of really good players at all positions. We are going to pick guys that we feel can contribute.”In addition to their work researching quarterbacks, the Giants have spent time with several of the top defensive prospects in this year’s class and Shurmur’s answer suggests a fair number of those early picks may be ticketed for coordinator James Bettcher’s unit. The Giants have re-signed Eli Manning’s primary backup"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections New York Giants NewsGiants Training Camp 2016Giants vs. Eagles 2015 White Wayne Gallman Jerseys , Week 17New York Giants NewsGiants Free Agency 2019New York Giants re-sign QB Alex TanneyNew,36commentsThe Giants have re-signed Eli Manning’s primary backupESTShareTweetShareShareNew York Giants re-sign QB Alex TanneyVincent Carchietta-USA TODAY SportsThe New York Giants have announced that they have re-signed veteran quarterback Alex Tanney. The Giants signed Tanney as a part of their 2018 free agency period to be a veteran presence and another arm to keep Eli Manning from being over-worked in the run-up to the 2018 season. Ultimately, the Giants opted to release second-year quarterback Davis Webb and Tanney spent most of 2019 as Eli Manning’s primary back-up. Tanney took a step down the depth chart as the Giants sought to get a look at rookie QB Kyle Lauletta Wayne Gallman Jerseys 2019 , but retook his job by the end of the season. Tanney is a good player to have in the quarterback room and head coach Pat Shurmur has stated that he prefers to carry four quarterbacks on the roster through training camp. The Giants are thought to be looking for an heir to Eli Manning, but the decision to re-sign Tanney shouldn’t figure in their plans to draft (or not draft) a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft. NJ.com is also reporting that Kyle Lauletta had “minor” knee surgery this offseason, which could have factored into the decision. With OTAs coming up in the spring White Sterling Shepard Jerseys , the Giants likely want to be sure they have enough quarterbacks to properly run their workouts.

    features Michael Jordan musing about who is the greatest quarterback ever while hyping a rare matchup between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.Brady acknowledges that it is fun to debate such matters Youth Rob Gronkowski Jerseys , but notes that it is ultimately “a hypothetical question that is truly impossible to answer.” Brady did say that Rodgers has “every skill you need to be a great quarterback” and that the Packers quarterback provides him with a push to be the best player he can be.“What he鈥檚 done as a quarterback, I think it is is inspiring Rob Gronkowski Jerseys Stitched , even for me,” Brady said on WEEI. “I watch his game and it makes me want to get out there and practice and improve because I think he鈥檚 so phenomenal with the way he manages himself in the pocket and his ability to throw the football is unlikely anyone probably in the history of the league. It鈥檚 pretty awesome to watch.”Brady said that he is sure that Sunday’s game in New England “will come down to the wire.”The only other meeting between the two teams with Brady and Rodgers starting came in Green Bay during the 2014 season. The Packers prevailed 26-21 behind two Rodgers touchdown passes and a seven-yard completion to Randall Cobb on third down that allowed them to run out the clock in the fourth quarter. ATTLEBORO Color Rush Damien Harris Jersey , Mass. (AP) — Former New England Patriots linebacker and ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi is recovering in a Massachusetts hospital after suffering a second stroke.His family says in a statement the 46-year-old suffered the stroke Thursday and immediately recognized the warning signs of arm weakness, face drooping and speech difficulties.Bruschi was admitted to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro Youth Damien Harris Jersey , where his family said Friday he was “recovering well.”Bruschi had a stroke in February 2005 just days after the Patriots won the Super Bowl and learned he had a congenital heart defect that produced a hole in his heart. He had surgery to repair the hole and retired. But he sat out less than a year before returning for the seventh game of the 2005 season.He played three more seasons with the Patriots and announced his retirement just before the start of the 2009 season. Since then, he’s worked at ESPN and entered the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2013.

    people when he turned 42 years old on August 3 Nathan Shepherd Jerseys Stitched , but none came from one of the quarterbacks chasing him in the AFC East.Sam Darnold was asked to take part in a video with other NFL players wishing Brady happy returns, but he declined to take part in the project. Darnold said that he’ll chat with Brady after games between the two teams, but felt that taking part in a birthday celebration would be giving something he’s unwilling to give to a player who has reached heights that Darnold hopes to reach during his own career.“That’s just it, man — knowing what I’ve got to do,” Darnold said, via Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports. “I’m going to get every competitive edge I can, because he’s going to do the same thing. He’s the ultimate competitor. He’s exactly where I want to be when I’m his age. To chase that, I can’t be giving him anything.”Whether this qualifies as a competitive edge or not is certainly subject to debate. As with players using musty criticisms from early in their careers as motivational chips, however, Darnold’s belief that it gives him one may be more significant than any conclusion drawn from that debate.

The idea here is to build a generic Big Board reflecting the community’s view of this year’s draft class regardless of the Jets’ (or any other team’s) particular needs. So for instance, the Jets do not need a QB this year, but that should not prevent you from placing a QB high on the Big Board. Each day we will close the previous day’s poll and the candidate with the most votes will be added to the GGN Big Board. In the event of a tie vote the tie will be broken by surname in alphabetical order. By the time the draft rolls around we should have enough players on our Big Board to cover two rounds of the draft.In the event I have made an egregious omission and a name you think should be on the poll is not there you can write in candidates in the comments section. If a player gets support in the comments section I’ll add him to the next day’s poll.Try not to get overly frustrated if your guy isn’t being voted to the top of the board. We all have different views and what we’re looking for here is a composite of the best players in the community’s collective mind. Your views may or may not coincide with the community’s, and either way that’s OK.So let’s get to it. Today we vote for the #51 prospect on the 2019 crowd sourced GGN Big Board. Who will it be? Vote early, vote often, and let’s hear who you think are the best players in this draft.

    Well this season has not transpired as many of us would have hoped. The Vikings are at 8-6-1 with a chance to get to 9-6-1 and into the playoffs. It would be quite devastating if they did not make the playoffs to be honest. But teams that have gone 13-3 seldom if ever equal or better that record the next season especially when they change the quarterback and have a new offensive coordinator (or two).Still Mike Remmers Jersey , this all comes down to Coach Zimmer in my book. It is his team and he has made changes as he saw fit. So if they do not get to the playoffs then it is all on him.As always, trying to speculate about the draft next year requires a little quick review of the salary cap and possible contract extensions, restructures, or voids (i.e., someone getting released). Right now the Vikings have about 7.3 mil in cap space (according to spotrac). Next year’s projected cap space is projected to be between 187 and 191 mil. The Vikings have 43 players under contract for about 183.3 mil in cap space.https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/minnesota-vi...ota-vikings/The unrestricted free agents the Vikings have are Anthony Barr, Sheldon Richardson, Latavius Murray, Brett Jones, Nick Easton, Dan Bailey, Marcus Sherels Riley Reiff Jersey , Ameer Abdullah, Tom Johnson, Tom Compton, George Iloka, Aldrick Robinson, Anthony Harris, and Trevor Siemian.The exclusive restricted free agents the Vikings have are Matt Wile, C.J. Ham, Cedrick Lang, and Josiah Price.The restricted free agent they have is Rashod Hill.With only 7.3 mil in cap space something has to give because you need about 5 mil of that for the rookies next year.If the Vikings cut or trade Griffen, Sendejo Latavius Murray Jersey , and Remmers they can get to 28 mil in cap space.If they can trade Treadwell they save another 1.8 mil in cap space.I would extend Rudolph 3 more years where I would take his 7.625 mil and convert most into a signing bonus. This could save 3 to 4 mil in cap space.If they did all those moves that would bring the available cap space to about 32 to 33 mil.Who would they bring back and for how much?I think the per year averages could be ..Richardson at least 12 mil, Barr at least 11 mil, Harris between 3 and 4.5 mil, Easton, Compton, and Jones ranging from 1.5 mil up to 3 mil, Murray about 3 mil, Bailey about 2 to 2.5 mil, and who knows with the rest.There are going to be some interesting decisions made this off season for sure.In this fantasy, I am going to go with the above cuts, extend Harris for 3.5 mil George Iloka Jersey , Easton for 2.5 mil, Murray for 2.5 mil, and Bailey for 2 mil.

    He continues to be a free agent.His ceremonial retirement with the Packers did not include signing a meaningless one-day contract because Kentrell Brice Jersey White , frankly, signing a one-day contract does have some meaning — more meaning actually than one share of Packers stock. (Cue the Packers shareholders who resent having the meaninglessness of their framed piece of memorabilia pointed out.)By signing an actual one-day contract and retiring, a player lands on the reserve/retired list. The team holds his rights, and can control his rights. So if a team — like, say, the Bears, Lions, or Vikings — would need his services at some point this year, the Packers would have to release Nelson’s rights in order to allow the move to happen.Even if Nelson currently has no interest in playing, there’s no reason to tie himself to the Packers because circumstances could change at some point between now and January. A truly retired player (like Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski) has a Week 13 deadline for emerging from the reserve/retired list. Nelson Womens Josh Jackson Jersey , like any free agent, can sign with any team at any time, up to and including the week of the Super Bowl.And even if the Packers would gladly release Nelson’s rights if/when he wants to play, he’d be required to pass through waivers if he’s released after the trade deadline. In 2002, the Chargers prevented Deion Sanders from climbing aboard the Raiders’ Super Bowl bandwagon by making a waivers claim when Washington released Deion from the reserve/retired list after the trade deadline.So Nelson can ceremonially retire with the Packers and easily unretire whenever he wants, if ever he wants. For anyone who has yet to completely and totally slam the door on playing, that’s the way to do it. GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Having signed four potential starters in free agency, the Green Bay Packers enter this week’s draft looking to add the missing ingredients to a team that has missed the playoffs the last two seasons.“With some of the things that we’ve done, I think where our team sits today Womens Clay Matthews Jersey , I’m not super concerned about, ‘Hey, we absolutely have to do this or absolutely have to do that,'” general manager Brian Gutekunst said at a news conference Monday.“We can sit back, see where the draft board is strong, try to get there and then take the best players available. … I think it’s a really good draft overall and I think we have a chance to help our team.”The Packers hold the 12th selection in Thursday’s first round. They haven’t had such an early pick since drafting defensive tackle B.J. Raji at No. 9 in 2009. Gutekunst’s maneuvering in the first round of last year’s draft bagged the 30th selection of the first round for this year. Including those picks, Green Bay has six selections in the first four rounds.Leading to the draft, Gutekunst added outside linebackers Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith, safety Adrian Amos and offensive lineman Billy Turner. Those signings bolstered three of the Packers’ biggest areas of need. In turn, that eases the pressure on Gutekunst.“I do like our flexibility to be able to move around and not feel like we’re pigeon-holed to have to take a certain position or a certain player Marcedes Lewis Jersey White ,” he said.One position where there is not an immediate need is quarterback, with 35-year-old Aaron Rodgers returning for his 15th season. Still, Gutekunst used one of his predraft visits on Missouri quarterback Drew Lock, who is considered a likely first-round pick. Gutekunst said there’s a measure of “subterfuge” in his use of the 30 predraft invitations. Then again, Brett Favre was 35 when then-general manager Ted Thompson drafted Rodgers in the first round in 2005.“Every year, we spend a lot of time on the quarterbacks and trying to figure out what kinds of players those guys are going to be in the NFL,” Gutekunst said. “And it’s really, really important to us because, if you don’t have one, it’s really tough to win in this league. For us Mike Daniels Jersey , it’s about trying to decide which are the guys that could potentially be starters in this league.”This will be Gutekunst’s second year running the draft but his first with new coach Matt LaFleur. While LaFleur is installing a new offense — that process will continue at the three-day minicamp that starts Tuesday — Gutekunst said has had “minimal” impact on the kind of players he’s been scouting.“You do this for as long as a lot of us have in that room, this is what you work all year for. It’s really exciting to have the ability to try to help your football team and add to that mix”In addition to the first round, the Packers have the 12th selection in each round. Plus, they have an additional picks in the fourth round (last year’s trade of safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to Washington) and the sixth round (last year’s trade of quarterback Brett Hundley to Seattle).For Gutekunst and his staff, it’s almost show time. In the draft room, the board is locked behind curtains to prevent overanalysis. He allowed his scouts to spend Easter weekend with family.“You do get to this point where it’s a little dangerous to react too much,” he said. “And I wouldn’t imagine there would be a whole lot of tweaks between now and Thursday.”

    a great job of protecting Baker Mayfield recently Cleveland Browns T-Shirts , and have the longest active streak in the NFL by not allowing a sack in 125 snaps.Things will get more difficult for the Browns (4-6-1) on Sunday when they visit the Houston Texans (8-3) and their defense led by pass-rushing stars J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney. Watt is tied for second in the NFL with 11 1/2 sacks and has 19 quarterback hits, and Clowney has seven sacks and 15 quarterback hits.“I have a job to do and that’s my job to go out there and hopefully end that streak,” Watt said. “They’ve obviously been doing a good job. It’s going to be a good battle.”Mayfield, who hasn’t been sacked in two games, said he’s watched Watt play since the quarterback was in high school and knows he’ll have to account for him and Clowney on every play.“I have to get it out very quick,” Mayfield said. “They have two of the best defensive ends in the league. That is not discrediting any of the other guys, but they are talented. The emphasis has to be on getting the ball out, which we have been trying to do these past weeks. We have to keep doing it.”The Texans know the key to stretching their franchise-record winning streak to nine games will be slowing down Mayfield, the top overall pick in this year’s draft. Mayfield has 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions in eight starts this season and is coming off a season-best four touchdown performance in Cleveland’s 35-20 win at Cincinnati last week.“Baker’s a winner,” Houston coach Bill O’Brien said. “He’s a competitor, very accurate, has a great instinct for the game https://www.brownsfanshop.com/hats , excellent ability to keep plays alive. I can just tell you we hold him in very high regard.”While Houston attempts to contain Mayfield, the Browns will try and limit the Texans’ young quarterback Deshaun Watson, who is also coming off a good game. Watson threw two touchdown passes and ran for a career-high 70 yards and a score in a 34-17 win over Tennessee on Monday.Cleveland interim coach Gregg Williams has been impressed with Watson’s improvement in his second season after playing just seven games as a rookie before suffering a season-ending knee injury.“I think the game’s slowing down for him,” Williams said. “You can see that he’s more relaxed. He never did show any stress or panic, but you can see he’s more comfortable in what he’s doing … you can see as the season’s gone on, each week he’s more and more comfortable with how he’s playing physically (and) mentally.”Some things to look for when the Browns visit the Texans:RUNNING WILDThe Texans are averaging the fourth-most yards rushing a game in the NFL after running for a franchise-record 281 yards on Monday night. Lamar Miller led the way with 162 yards rushing and a 97-yard touchdown against the Titans. The 27-year-old Miller is having a solid season after being slowed by minor injuries last year. He has three 100-yard rushing games after not rushing for more than 75 yards in a game last season.“(Miller) is hitting the hole and he is hitting it fast and violent, and he is breaking arm tackles,” Browns linebacker Joe Schobert said. “There are linebackers and D-line are in the holes and just trying to reach out trying to bring him down. He is running through it, and you see he has the speed to take it all the way to the house like we saw the other day.”ROAD WOESCleveland’s win at Cincinnati last week snapped a 25-game road losing streak and was its first victory away from Cleveland since Oct. 11, 2015. Now the Browns will try to win consecutive road games in a season for the first time since they beat San Francisco and Pittsburgh on Sept. 21 and Oct. 5, 2003.While the Browns have been terrible on the road, they haven’t been much better at home. Sunday’s victory marked the first time they’d won two straight games overall since 2014 Cleveland Browns Hoodie , when they won three in a row.QB REUNIONOnce foes, Watson and Mayfield are now friends.The quarterbacks will have an on-field reunion Sunday, meeting for the first time since the 2016 Orange Bowl when Watson led Clemson to a 37-17 win over Mayfield and the Oklahoma Sooners. Watson and Mayfield are part of the NFL’s next wave of star quarterbacks, and the pair already shares a mutual respect.“He’s going to have a bright future, a bright career, win a lot of games, win championships and do a lot of things for himself and that organization,” Watson said of Mayfield. “I’m a big Baker fan and everything that he has been doing for a long time. It’s going to be very exciting to see him pregame and compete against him. I’ll talk to him later this week and probably jersey swap with him.”The Browns passed on a chance to draft Watson in 2017. But if they had taken him, Mayfield would be elsewhere. As he develops, Cleveland’s rookie QB has been impressed with what Watson has already accomplished.“Deshaun is an incredible quarterback, incredible athlete, a great leader https://www.brownsfanshop.com/James-Burgess-Jersey ,” Mayfield said. “He’s been playing at a very high level. He’s a huge reason why they’ve won eight in a row. It’s always great to play great competition. You always look forward to that.” Since the adoption of a new rookie wage scale in the latest collective bargaining agreement in 2011, the fifth-year option has been a way for teams to hang onto successful first-round picks for a fixed price.And perhaps not surprisingly, considering the results of the first half of this decade, the Browns have struggled.According to a database compiled by Warren Sharp, the Browns are 0-for-8 so far on players seeing the option years, which underscores why last year’s 7-8-1 feels like such remarkable progress.They picked up 2011 first-rounder Phil Taylor’s, but cut him before the start of the 2015 season. The players they did not pick up the options for include: Trent Richardson (2012), Brandon Weeden (2012), Barkevious Mingo (2013), Justin Gilbert (2014), Johnny Manziel (2014), Danny Shelton (2015) Jim Brown Color Rush Jersey , and Cameron Erving (2015). They won’t exercise 2016 first-rounder Corey Coleman‘s either, since he’s on the Giants roster now. The streak should end when it’s time to do business with 2017 first-rounder Myles Garrett.Blowing that many premium picks is an easy way to prevent your team from being good for years to come.The Seahawks are 0-for-2 over the same span, since they so often trade down and out of the first round.On the other end of the spectrum, the Panthers, Texans, and Chargers are a clean 5-for-5 through the 2015 draft class, while the Falcons are 4-for-4.

After picking up a versatile defensive lineman in round five Lance Kendricks Color Rush Jersey , the Packers went with XX with pick 185 in round six.With that pick, they have made cornerback Ka’Dar Hollman from Toledo the newest member of the Packers.

He won a Super Bowl and took the Packers to the playoffs nine times while compiling a 125-77-2 record over 13 years in Green Bay.Most of that work came with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback and the Jets https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Nick-Perry-Jersey , Browns and other teams with young quarterbacks would love to replicate some of that success in the years to come.

The Colts had one of the best offensive lines in football under DeGuglielmo as they gave up the least amount of sacks in the league with a line that consisted of two rookies. He played a big part in the team’s success but Frank Reich wanted a more experienced and technical coach going forward.After a long and anticipated search, the Colts decided to bring in Chris Strausser from Denver. Strausser has 31 years of coaching offensive line under his belt and has worked with many pro prospects in his long career. On top of adding Strausser, Ballard and Reich were able to convince legendary coach Howard Mudd to come out of retirement and return to the team as a Senior Offensive Assistant. Mudd is one of the godfathers of offensive line play but he has a very unique method when it comes to offensive line technique that should help with the development of this young line. In this piece, we are going to go in depth and look at how the teachings of both Mudd and Strausser can help the development of the young right tackle Braden Smith.The “Mudd Technique”So what is the “Mudd Technique” and why is it different? To get the answers to these questions, I asked Erik Turner— founder of Cover1.net and film analyst for the Athletic— for some insight on Mudd and his teachings. Turner wrote an excellent piece on Washington Offensive Tackle Kaleb McGary on how Mudd— and Chris Strausser— coached him in this unique technique. So what is the biggest difference in this technique from traditional offensive line coaching? According to Turner, the most important aspect of this system is aggressiveness. “He believes in aggressive pass sets. Why wait to start the fight— like typical vertical pass sets—he wants his lineman to jump pass rushers and take the fight to them.” Look at this video here posted by Turner to further explain that aggressive mindset.The other biggest aspect of this technique is the ability to adjust on the fly. “He wants his lineman to be problem solvers, not robots,” noted Turner. “Do whatever it takes to keep the offensive lineman’s body between the rusher and the quarterback.” He prefers his players to be smart but simplistic in what they look to accomplish. Be versatile and nuanced in your technique but understand that the only goal is to keep your quarterback clean no matter what. Again, look at this video posted by Turner to understand how Mudd’s lineman practice this technique. Whether it is an “ass block” or driving players into the ground, Mudd’s philosophy is simple. Keep the quarterback clean no matter what. Expect to see more non-traditional techniques from the Colts this season with aggressive pass sets and more unconventional blocking to reach the overall goal.The Chris Strausser EffectSo Howard Mudd is the Senior Offensive Assistant but Chris Strausser is the offensive line coach. How do his methods differ from Mudd’s? Not much really. When Strausser was the Offensive Line coach at Washington University, Mudd lived nearby and served in an advisory role for the team. Mudd was actually the reference the Colts used when considering to hire Strausser for the offensive line coach job.So there is already a built in relationship between the two. Strausser is an experienced coach in his own right as he has coached offensive line play for 31 years, 28 years at the collegiate level. Once he met and developed a relationship with Mudd though, he quickly began instituting his techniques and teachings in his own style. We saw it earlier with a few of the Washington clips above but what about last season when Strausser was the offensive line coach for the Broncos? Did the “Mudd Technique” show up when he was away from Howard Mudd’s tutelage? The short answer is yes Quenton Nelson Color Rush Jersey , plenty of these techniques popped up on Broncos film last season.Lets look at Left Tackle Garrett Bolles and how he used these techniques last season. Looking first at his aggressive sets, he utilized this a lot. He attacked talented pass rusher Myles Garrett all game when they faced the Browns and overall had a very solid game while using that technique. Here are a few examples of his aggressive sets in that game:As for the other major point in the “Mudd Technique”, Bolles shows that he knows how to think on the fly and find his block by any means necessary. Look at this next clip as he shows off the patented “ass block” that Mudd talked about earlier in this piece:Although Chris Strausser is the Offensive Line coach for this team, he has been influenced by Howard Mudd in recent years and has adopted many of his teachings and techniques.Impact on Braden SmithSo to this point, we have talked a lot about Howard Mudd and Chris Strausser and their philosophies for offensive lineman. How do those philosophies affect the offensive tackles of the Colts though? Let’s look at one player in particular, Braden Smith. He is a very unique player on the Colts line as he was drafted to play guard before moving to offensive tackle early in the season due to injuries.Smith locked down the starting right tackle spot and became a valuable starter on one of the best offensive lines in football. He should benefit the most though from the teachings of Strausser and Mudd this season, as he had his fair share of struggles in typical vertical pass sets and was at his best when he was aggressive and attacking opposing pass rushers. Let’s look at a few examples:Smith was at his best last season when he could attack. He was an excellent run blocker and his best pass blocking reps came in the play action game. Looking at his run blocking, he is a big and powerful player who is athletic enough to move players whenever he wants to.The core fundamental belief in the “Mudd Technique” is to block in every pass set like it is play action. Be aggressive and attack like you would on a play action play call. Smith attacks on this play action play call and shows that this could be a style that he could play well in. More attacking and less vertical sets could benefit him.Unfortunately for Smith and the Colts last year, they asked him to play more passively and do more vertical sets in his blocking. He still put together a great rookie season but a lot of his struggles came in these sets. His kick step was rather slow and he allowed players to get into his body too often. Look how much he gets pushed back here by the much smaller Dee Ford. The passive vertical set by Smith along with his raw footwork at the position, allows Ford to drive him back into the pocket. You can see how uncomfortable he was last season in these sets and how much he was thinking in his poorer games. When a player is thinking more about his technique rather than protecting the quarterback, that is where mistakes happen. Getting Smith into a more comfortable system where he has to be, as Mudd put it, “a problem solver.” Rather than perfecting a traditional technique https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Andrew-Luck-Jersey , Smith will be able to focus on just the main goal of keeping his quarterback clean.ConclusionThe additions of Chris Strausser and Howard Mudd should really help this offensive line jump from one of the best in the league to perhaps the best in the league. The biggest question mark or player to develop though is Braden Smith at right tackle. A conventional offensive line coach would likely have their hands full with a player like Smith as it is so rare that a player plays tackle in the NFL after rarely playing it in college. Mudd is quite different though.“(Mudd) is not a conventional thinker and he doesn’t want his players to play that way. So his methods can apply to any type of player. What he teaches is unconventional so even the savviest technicians may struggle with what he teaches because its not what they were taught their entire career. He wants his players and coaches to ‘dare to be different.’ He wants his players to think outside of the box.” - TurnerGoing into his second year in the NFL, Smith won’t have to be focusing on perfecting his kick step or polishing his technique as much. He’ll be able to get back to doing what he does best which is attacking on the outside and keeping his quarterback clean. This should be a major aspect in his development and I fully expect him to make a huge leap this upcoming season as a result. The Chiefs drafted quarterback Patrick Mahomes for days like this. But not for days like .It’s snowing in Kansas City, with a winter storm warning in place until 7:00 p.m. ET. And as the snow falls and the wind whips and the natural grass becomes slick (after the tarp is removed), Mahomes could have a harder time doing Mahomes things.If the conditions affect the passing game, the advantage could flip to the Colts, who can pound it behind a great offensive line. The Chiefs would benefit under those circumstances from the return of Spencer Ware, who last played in Week 14 against the Ravens. (He’s listed as questionable.) Ware would complement Damien Williams, who rushed for more than 100 yards in Week 16 against Seattle’s potent run defense.Even if the game is affected by the weather, it’s hard to imagine Mahomes not finding a way to shine. His uncanny skills include the ability to always color within the lines, not doing more than he’s capable of doing. He’ll likely know what he’s capable of doing in this kind of weather, and he’ll likely find a way to do it.

    offense so fast that he caught a TD pass on his first drive with the team five days after being acquired by the 49ers in a trade from Denver.Sanders only built from there by posting the most prolific receiving performance this season for the 49ers four days later as he already has become Jimmy Garoppolo's No. 1 outside target."I'm not surprised Seattle Seahawks T-Shirts ," Sanders said. "I really didn't give it any thought. My job is to come in, make plays and be in the perfect spot. His job is to deliver the football. We were able to do that."The Seattle Seahawks can only hope for as seamless a transition from their new big-play wideout. Josh Gordon could make his debut on Monday night for Seattle (7-2) in an NFC West showdown against the 49ers (8-0).The addition of Gordon to a wide receiver group that already includes the dynamic Tyler Lockett and impressive rookie D.K. Metcalf will make Seattle's passing game even more dangerous as soon as he becomes more comfortable in the offense and forms a good chemistry with Russell Wilson."It can be difficult. It can be hard on the fly," Gordon said. "You want to be able to just move without thinking as much. Getting to that part of the game is the most important part for me, making everything kind of more second nature. As long as you study and ask questions, the less doubts you have. For me, that's been my experience. I'm pretty well knowledgeable about certain offenses, talking to Coach Schottenheimer, talking to Russ. They've been instrumental in bringing me along in this process."Gordon was claimed off waivers by Seattle last week after being waived by New England following injuries to his knee and ankle. He passed a physical with the Seahawks and got on the practice field this week.Before being released, Gordon was among New England's leading receivers this season, with 20 catches for 287 yards and a touchdown through six games. He has dealt with several substance abuse suspensions in his career but also has shown great ability, with a league-leading 1,646 yards receiving in 14 games in 2013 with Cleveland."Josh is such a natural https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/hats ," Wilson said. "He understands the game so well. How he catches the football, understands how to use leverage and catch the football and do all that. He makes it easy on me. He just comes in just ready to roll. He understands the route concepts. He understands what we're trying to do, and he just does a great job with it. To be honest with you, it's been a very smooth transition."The Seahawks can only hope it goes as well as Sanders' did in San Francisco after being acquired along with a fifth-round pick from Denver for third- and fourth-round draft picks in 2020 on Oct. 22.Sanders took a quick crash course in an offense that was similar to the one he played in with the Broncos, whose coordinator Rich Scangarello spent the previous two seasons as quarterbacks coach for the 49ers.Sanders then caught two passes on his first drive with San Francisco, including 4-yard TD from Garoppolo in a win over Carolina. He finished that game with four catches for 25 yards.Sanders was even better last week with seven catches for 112 yards and a touchdown in a 28-25 win at Arizona, giving the 49ers the No. 1 receiver that has been one of the only missing ingredients this season."He'll go over the middle, he'll go across, he'll go deep, he'll go outside, he'll go inside," 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman said. "That's how a receiver is built. At 180 pounds going across the middle with no fear is not the way you always see it drawn up. You'll see 230-pound receivers who won't go across the middle. I don't think it's about the weight or the size of the dog Seattle Seahawks Hoodie , it's about the dog in you and he has huge dog."But there's more than toughness that has helped Sanders assimilate. There's also a trust with Garoppolo that has led to the early success.Never was that more evident than on a third-down play last week against Arizona, when Garoppolo started his throw well before Sanders began his break, only to have the ball arrive at precisely the right moment for a 22-yard gain."He's savvy," Garoppolo said. "He knows what to do, feels space when it's zone and he beats the guy when it's man. It's a nice combination. He's so smart that he just does things that, as a quarterback, you love to see, and it makes it easy on you to throw the ball to him." CHICAGO (AP) — Russell Wilson looked to his left and his right. He looked for help in the middle of the field. He looked short and he looked for deep balls.No one was open.It was that kind of Monday night for the Seattle Seahawks.Wilson was surrounded for most of Seattle’s 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears, and he got very little help from his teammates until the fourth quarter. He was sacked six times for the second straight week, including five in the first half, and made a game-sealing mistake in the final period.“We’re still a work in progress,” coach Pete Carroll said. “You can see how hard our guys played http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Phil-Haynes-Jersey , see how they fought throughout all the way to the last seconds on the clock.”Seattle (0-2) played without guard D.J. Fluker and receiver Doug Baldwin due to injuries, and Baldwin’s absence was particularly noticeable. Tyler Lockett was the Seahawks’ top receiver with five catches for 60 yards, but he got most of his numbers in the fourth. Brandon Marshall struggled to get open against one of his former teams.“I can always do better,” Marshall said. “There’s some things I definitely have to clean up. Just got to be sharper in everything that I do. We got to find a way to make plays.”The rushing attack also was shut down by Chicago’s refurbished defense, finishing with 74 yards on 22 carries. Seattle went almost 24 minutes of game time between rushing plays at one point.Wilson began the fourth quarter with just 69 yards on 9-for-20 passing, but he tried to rally the Seahawks down the stretch.“The fourth quarter showed us who we are and who we can be,” Wilson said. “We just got to get a better start and try to figure out how to catch that fire that we had in the fourth quarter, let’s put it in the first, second, third if we can do that, which I don’t think we’re far off by any means.”The four-time Pro Bowler found Lockett for 20 yards and tight end Nathan Vannett for 11 to move Seattle deep into Chicago territory. He then threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Lockett to trim the Bears’ lead to 17-10 with 10:13 left.Chicago (1-1) went three and out on the ensuing drive and punted the ball right back to Seattle. But Wilson’s pass intended for Rashaad Penny near midfield was picked off by Prince Amukamara, who returned his first interception since 2015 for his first career touchdown with 6:37 remaining.“You can’t even remember the last time Russ did that Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey ,” Carroll said.Wilson also lost a fumble on Seattle’s next drive. He passed to Will Dissly for a 2-yard touchdown with 14 seconds to go, but the Seahawks’ onside kick was unsuccessful and the Bears ran out the clock.The lackluster showing for Seattle’s offense wasted a solid performance for its defense, led by two second-quarter interceptions for Shaquill Griffin. The second-year cornerback made a nice play on an underthrown ball by Mitchell Trubisky, and then had a diving grab on a tipped ball.Mychal Kendricks had one of Seattle’s two sacks in his first game since he signed with the Seahawks on Friday. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges, but he isn’t expected to be sentenced in the case until January and the NFL has yet to impose any discipline.“Just having this opportunity to play it means so much more to me,” said Kendricks, who was released by Cleveland on Aug. 29 after the charges were filed. “That being said, I plan on doing the most with it.”It just wasn’t enough, not with the Seahawks’ ineffective offense.Wilson was 22 for 36 for 226 yards. Penny was the top rusher with 10 carries for 30 yards as Seattle possessed the ball for just 25 1/2 minutes.“The fighter mentality in me is always going to be there so you can’t play scared,” Wilson said. “You got to be able to go for it. I think we were still able to do that. We had a lot of fourth-quarter comebacks and I believe those are going to happen.”
