Jets’ Buster Skrine: ‘You can’t rebuild in New York’

Plenty of folks don’t have very high expectations for the New York Jets.

With a quarterback room filled with Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, it’s hard to blame them. But don’t count Buster Skrine as one of their cheap mets jerseys.

“You can’t rebuild in New York,” Skrine told ESPN. “Because y’all will eat us up. Ain’t no rebuilding here. It’s getting right to the point. This is a competing team. We still have the players to compete.”

Brought in as a free-agent addition before the 2015 season, Skrine was an acquisition for a team that was ready to contend. That Jets squad finished just outside the playoffs with a 10-6 record, and things seemed to be trending toward a postseason appearance in 2016. Then the wheels fell off.

Skrine has a point: The Jets do still have a handful of players that make them somewhat competitive. But New York has also bid adieu to Nick Mangold, Brandon Marshall and Darrelle Revis, among others. It’s been a signal that the team is deconstructing to start over with new pieces. The Jets are going young, and with youth and roster anonymity usually comes more losses than wins. But Skrine is under contract for three more seasons, so he has to trumpet his franchise’s chances.

Having played for the Browns from 2011-2014, he’s also been part of cheap replica jerseys and a few internal detonations.

“I’m going into my seventh year and I played for Cleveland, so I’ve seen it happen,” he said. “Sometimes you have to figure out the right formula for the team, and I trust Coach (Todd) Bowles. Every morning, he’s up at 4:30. I trust (Jets GM Mike) Maccagnan. I trust everybody. I know they’ve got something up their sleeve. They’re going to make it work.

Cleveland holds the No. 1 pick, and the club is considering not only the consensus favorite for the choice, Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett, but a quarterback as well, according to an ESPN report. The Jets select at No. 6. Clemson’s Deshaun Watson and North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky figure to be the most tantalizing options at the position.

“I don’t think they should take a QB at No. 6. I think that would be a big mistake,” Jeremiah said of the Jets. “You’d basically be admitting you made a big mistake in taking a quarterback (Christian Hackenberg) in the second round last year. You identify a wasted second-round pick last year, you’d cost yourself the opportunity to get a great player at another position at No. 6 this year, and you probably take yourself out of the quarterback market next year. Without getting ahead of ourselves, when you look at what could be available, I think it’s going to be a much better group next year than we have this year.”

Brooks suggested a quarterback could potentially be the right move for the Jets at No. 6, but agreed with Jeremiah that it’s not the right play for la kings jersey cheap Cleveland at No. 1.

Nike Jets #5 Christian Hackenberg White Men's Stitched NFL Vapor Untouchable Limited Jersey“I don’t believe there is a quarterback worthy of being the No. 1 pick,” Brooks said. “… With Myles Garrett jersey, you’re getting a guy that is solid. He plays a premier position and should be able to play that position for the next 8-10 years at a very high level, in a division where you need to be able to get after the passer.”

The pick gives New York one of the draft’s most talented defenders, a hard-hitting, downhill tackler who exits college renowned by his former teammates and coaches as one of the best leaders in LSU lore.

“I think this is the second-best football player in the draft,” NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah said after Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the selection.

The 6-foot, 214-pound Adams joins a wanting Jets secondary that includes Marcus Gilchrist and Calvin Pryor at the safety spots. The rookie will be given a chance to step in and shake up the pecking order right away for third-year coach Todd Bowles.

“He can play all over the field and he could have an immediate impact on defense just like Landon Collins jersey did coming out (for the Giants),” one scout told cheapjersey. “I love him. I think he’s a winner.”

The Jets have now used nine straight first-round picks on defensive players since taking quarterback Mark Sanchez in 2009. And why not, considering Gang Green has ranked in the bottom half of the league in scoring defense in five of the past six seasons.

The Jets have a long way to go to challenge for the AFC East, but Thursday’s decision gives this team one of the draft’s most treasured assets. It’s a start.

McHugh gets checked out after rehab setback

Astros right-hander Collin McHugh, who began the season on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis, arrived in Houston mid-afternoon Friday to visit with the team’s medical staff.

McHugh is being reevaluated because he had to leave Thursday’s rehab start at Triple-A Fresno after one inning due to tightness in his elbow and biceps mens softball jerseys wholesale.

The hope had been that McHugh would pitch five stress-free innings for the Grizzlies and then report to the Astros, where he was 13-10 with a 4.34 ERA last season following a breakthrough 2015 that saw him go 19-7 with a 3.89 ERA.

“We expected him to go five innings,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “It certainly caused him to come home. It’s unfortunate that he had a little setback. He didn’t finish his outing, so we’re certainly disappointed for his official mlb jerseys wholesale.”

McHugh was on a rehab assignment for Fresno after arm fatigue early in the spring caused him to fall behind in his throwing program.

After allowing three runs on three hits with a walk in a 27-pitch first inning, McHugh took the mound to warm up for the second, but he didn’t feel well enough to continue.

Correa’s comments come one day after his agent, Greg Genske, told FanRag Sports that Correa “is never going to do an [early] multi-year contract.” The report said Correa’s contract was renewed at the Major League minimum of $535,000 this season.

“I’ve still got five more years of being here, so if the Astros come to me and they want to negotiate and the price is right, we’ll consider it,” Correa said. “Right now, I’m in the stage of my career where I’m just going to play baseball and try to put up numbers. They try to do something, it’s got to be early. … I’ve got to focus on playing good baseball so I can have good arbitration years.”

Correa, who got a $4.8 million signing bonus after the Astros made him the No. 1 pick in the 2012 Draft, figures to make tens of millions if he plays out his three arbitration years (2019-21) prior to becoming a free agent. He could be a free agent at the age of 27, at the earliest.

Correa said he wouldn’t want to make a bad deal and would wait for the right one, but said the Astros haven’t approached him yet.

Astros #4 George Springer White New Cool Base Stitched MLB Jersey“They haven’t talked to me about anything,” he said. “That’s why I’m not worried about it. They haven’t talked to me about cheap jerseys money, they haven’t talked to me about an extension, they haven’t talked to me about being here for a longer time. I’m just playing baseball here with the Houston Astros.

“I love the team, I love the guys in this clubhouse, I love the fans, I love our stadium, so hopefully I can stay in Houston for the rest of my career and cheap mlb jerseys wholesale.”

“It means a lot,” Altuve said. “Every time you steal a base, you are also helping your team. I’m trying to play hard at 100 percent. It feels good to get to 200.”

Altuve’s season high for stolen bases is 56 in 2014. He has stolen at least 30 bases in each of the last five seasons, since becoming a regular in the Astros’ lineup.

Jones: Tony Romo one of best Cowboys players ever

The Dallas Cowboys officially parted ways with quarterback Tony Romo on Tuesday.

Romo will join CBS as the station’s lead analyst.

cheap wholesale authentic jerseys

Upon Romo’s retirement, owner Jerry Jones called the quarterback, who had been with the Cowboys for 14 seasons, one of the best players in the franchise’s illustrious history.

“We wish Tony and his family nothing but the best,” Jones said in a statement. “As an organization, we did what he asked us to do in terms of his release, and we wanted to do what was ultimately in his best interest and in the best interest of his family.

“Tony has been a wonderful representative of the Cowboys organization for 14 years, and he left everything he had on the field. He will leave us with many great memories and a legacy of being, truly, one of the greatest players in Cowboys history. We are thrilled for him and his family that he will be able to continue working as a professional in the game he so dearly loves.

“He is a young man who is just getting started on a long journey in life. All the best my friend.”

Despite questions about his future, and the Cowboys’ delay in releasing Romo, it’s clear that his relationship with the organization never deteriorated.

“Tony Romo has a unique combination of athletic ability, arm talent, vision, and instincts for the game,” coach Jason Garrett added. “What separates Tony from many other players, however, is a rare competitive spirit. Tony loves to play. Tony loves to compete. The best ones always do. In practice. During games. On the field. Off the field. Tony competes to the end in wholesale jerseys that he does.

“That relentless spirit that Tony plays with is contagious. He makes his teammates better. He makes his coaches better. He makes his team better. He has grown so much as a player and as a person over the course of his career and has made a significant impact on the lives of so many. I consider myself fortunate to be at the top of that list. It has been one of the great privileges of my life to work with Tony Romo, one of the greatest players in Dallas Cowboys cheap jerseys history.”

Baylor’s Seth Russell, who has spent the offseason recovering from an ankle dislocation that ended his season last year, threw for the Cowboys staff on “Dallas Day” at team headquarters along with SMU’s Matt Davis, Virginia Tech’s Jerod Evans, Tulsa’s Dane Evans, West Virginia’s Skyler Howard and UT-San Antonio’s Jared Johnson, per the Dallas Morning News. “Dallas Day” is the Cowboys’ annual workout for local prospects.

Russell threw for 2,100 yards in each of two injury shortened seasons for the Bears. A neck injury ended his junior season after seven games. For his career, he threw 60 touchdown passes with 18 interceptions. Davis was a late entry to the draft field after an unsuccessful attempt to attain a sixth year of NCAA eligibility, while the Hokies’ Evans was an early draft entry after only one season as a starter in college.

Nike Cowboys #82 Jason Witten Navy Blue Thanksgiving Men's Stitched NFL Vapor Untouchable Limited Throwback JerseyThe Cowboys won’t host any quarterbacks among their allotted 30 pre-draft visits, per the report.

The club will host 18 draft prospects this week, 17 of them on the defensive side of the ball, led by some of the top talent available in the 2017 NFL Draft. The list, per Albert Breer of MMQB, includes USC CB Adoree’ Jackson, Ohio State CB Gareon Conley, Tennessee DE Derek Barnett and Michigan DE Taco Charlton. The lone offensive player in this week to see the Cowboys is USC WR JuJu Smith-Schuster.

The Cowboys hold the No. 28 overall pick of the draft and have defensive needs both in the secondary and at defensive end. NFL clubs are permitted to host only 30 prospects on pre-draft visits, so Dallas will burn through more than half of theirs this week alone.

Other defensive prospects visiting the Cowboys this week include Washington CB Kevin King, UConn DB Obi Melifonwu, UCLA CB Fabian Moreau, Clemson CB Cordrea Tankersley, Louisiana Tech S Xavier Woods, Oregon State CB Treston DeCoud, Florida CB Teez Tabor, Colorado CB Chidobe Awuzie, Colorado S Tedric Thompson, Ohio DE Tarell Basham, UCLA DE Takk McKinley, Florida CB Quincy Wilson and Villanova DE Tanoh Kpassagnon.

If you were counting along, that was nine cornerbacks and five defensive ends. Although he’s not visiting the Cowboys this week, Wisconsin pass rusher T.J. Watt has been scheduled as well. It might be premature to say the Cowboys are going to emphasize defense in the draft, but it’s fairly obvious that they’ll explore that possibility this week.

JBJ makes yet another highlight-reel grab

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. knows a laser when it leaves his bat, and he also might have a hidden talent for guessing his own exit velocity.

mlb jerseys cheap

After squaring up a key triple to help lead the Red Sox to a 5-3 victory over the Pirates in Monday’s Opening Day at Fenway, Bradley was asked how hard he hit that ball.

“I’m going to say 111 [mph],” said Bradley, emphasizing that it was purely a guess.

Statcast™ registered the triple at 110.6 mph leaving Bradley’s bat, coming off of a 96.9-mph heater by Bucs ace Gerrit Cole.

It was the hardest ball Bradley has hit in the Statcast™ era, which started in 2015.

Monday marked the latest demonstration of how much Bradley helps the Red Sox as a two-way player.

In the top of the fourth, with the game scoreless, Bradley made an impressive catch against the railing of Boston’s bullpen to rob Francisco Cervelli of extra bases. The catch probability, according to Statcast™, was 55 percent, making it a three-star grab.

But what Statcast™ couldn’t account for was the fact Bradley had the wall railing to contend with and some sunlight. He actually did a little cheap jerseys route adjustment while in pursuit.

Red Sox #41 Chris Sale Navy Blue New Cool Base Stitched MLB Jersey“I knew what vicinity it was going to be in, and then heading towards the wall, it was adjusting to the sun, actually,” said Bradley. “I had to get around it, because the ball was in the sun momentarily. I had to wait for it to come out. That was right around the time when I was going to hit the wall. I just tried to keep my focus, stick with it.”

Wearing No. 19 this season — which was donned decades ago by another standout Red Sox center fielder named Fred Lynn — Bradley has a similar view of walls as the 1975 World Series hero.

“I don’t care about the wall, I’m going to catch the ball,” said Bradley.

And that he did, bringing the Fenway faithful of 36,594 to its collective feet.
Off the bat, Cervelli hoped he had a hit.

“Oh yeah, but it’s Bradley,” said Cervelli. “He’s been doing those kind of plays for years now. It doesn’t surprise me. He’s a pro, one of the best over there.”

Dellin Betances fired a lockdown eighth for mlb jerseys cheap of the Yankees, but Aroldis Chapman labored in the ninth to earn his fifth save. The lefty gave up a hit and a run while walking two and striking out two and generated just two swings and misses in 33 pitches.

In a losing effort, Red Sox righty Rick Porcello allowed five hits and two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings, walking four and striking out nine.

cheap jerseys from china

“I think the sinker and four-seam, the combination of both, was pretty solid today,” Porcello said. “So I’ve got to keep building off that. The walks, they’ll come back to hurt you.”

Greg Bird gave the Yankees some insurance with an RBI single off the Green Monster in the sixth to score Judge, who started the rally with cheap mlb jerseys from china and a two-out walk.

Judge goes oppo: Judge jumped on the first Porcello pitch he saw, an 88.7-mph two-seamer, and belted it to the front row of seats beyond the visitors’ bullpen for his seventh homer of the season. According to Statcast™, the blast had an exit velocity of 109.7 mph and had a projected distance of 385 feet.

“I’m glad I was able to get two runs on the board early against a former Cy Young winner,” said Judge. ” I know he has good stuff, so I was just trying to attack him early and get something over the plate.”

Late drama: Chapman issued a leadoff walk to Andrew Benintendi, and Mookie Betts doubled to set up Chris Young’s RBI groundout. Jackie Bradley Jr. whiffed and Josh Rutledge also went down swinging to end the game, but not before making the Yanks gulp with a long foul ball down the left-field line.

As Bradley roared around the bases, Andrew McCutchen had a lonely feeling on the first official day of his position switch to right field.

“It’s a pinball machine,” McCutchen said. “I knew that was going to happen — that’s what it’s going to do. Balls are going to hit one way then hit another way, hit another wall. You’ve got to try to do your best to catch the ball cleanly and get it in. That’s just one of those things that’s going to happen.”

After a solid season last year, Bradley looks forward to again making things happen for the Red Sox in 2017.

Bruins Recall Kuraly on Emergency Basis

Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, April 1, that the team has recalled forward Sean Kuraly from the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL) on an emergency basis. Kuraly will be available for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Kuraly, who is in his first full professional season with the Bruins organization in 2016-17, has skated in five games with Boston this year, making his NHL debut on November 3, 2016 vs the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 24-year-old forward has also appeared in 54 games with Providence, producing 14 goals and 12 assists for 26 points with 37 penalty minutes and a plus-10 rating.

Kuraly served as captain at Miami University (Ohio) in 2015-16, posting six goals and 17 assists for 23 points in 36 games. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound forward recorded a career high in goals and tied a career high in points during the 2014-15 season with the RedHawks, scoring 19 goals and adding 10 assists for 29 points in 40 games. Over his four-year collegiate career, Kuraly skated in 154 games, producing 43 goals and 50 assists for 93 points with cheap chinese nhl jerseys and 177 penalty minutes.

Krug was injured in the first period of a 2-1 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators on Thursday. He was seen leaving TD Garden on crutches, according to NBCSN, and did not practice Friday.

“He’ll be out [Saturday], that much we know, and then from there, day to day,” Cassidy said.

The Bruins (44-30-7) end the regular season with a home game against the Washington Capitals (3 p.m. ET; NBC, NHL.TV). Boston’s opponent in the Eastern Conference First Round has not been determined. The playoffs begin April 12.

Krug has 51 points (eight goals, 43 assists), his NHL career high by seven.

“Well, we’re not going to be able to replace what he does,” Cassidy said. “He’s a special talent — power play, first pass, breakout, neutral-zone transition, all of those things — so the onus will be on us to make sure we make the necessary reads in our chicago bulls jersey cheap breakout.”

Krug is second on the Bruins in ice time per game (21:36), behind defenseman Zdeno Chara (23:15), and leads Boston with 25 power-play points.

“Losing a guy like Torey’s never easy,” Chara said. “And he’s obviously been a big part of our team’s specialty teams, and obviously we don’t know the status of the injury, but hopefully he’s going to be back and on the ice soon.”

The 23-year-old defenseman was also named a Hockey East First-Team All-Star for the second consecutive season. In 2014-15, Grzelcyk skated in 41 games, recording 10 goals and 28 assists for 38 points with 36 penalty minutes and a plus-32 rating. In addition to serving as captain and being named a Hockey East First-Team All-Star, he earned CCM First-Team All-American honors and was fourth in the nation in points per game among defenseman (0.95). Over his jerseys cheap and four-year collegiate career, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound blueliner appeared in 124 jerseys wholesale games for Boston University, tallying 26 goals and 68 assists for 94 points.

Grzelcyk represented the United States in international play on three separate occasions. At the Under-20 World Junior Championships in 2014, he served as an assistant captain and posted two goals and four assists for six points in five games. Grzelcyk also skated in six games and tallied one assist at the Under-18 World Junior Championships in 2012. At the Under-17 World Hockey Championships in 2011, he appeared in five games and scored one goal and added five assists for six points.

The Charlestown, Massachusetts native was selected by the Bruins in the third round (85th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Dolphins aren’t aiming to match Patriots’ offseason

Miami Dolphins executive vice president Mike Tannenbaum is pleased with the team’s offseason so far, and he isn’t trying to stay in lockstep with the Patriots after years of trying do so with the Jets.

Miami Dolphins jersey wholesale

“Look, all you can do is control your own team,” Tannenbaum said, via the team’s official site. “We’ve got 31 other teams that are competitors, obviously. New England has done a tremendous job for a long time. They’re in our division. But we’re trying to build the best program for us. And that’s all baseball jerseys for cheap we can control.

“That’s enough on our plate. To worry about what we can do. To put the best team out there for the foreseeable future. We’ll play them twice in the fall and we’ll go from there. But we can’t just sit there and say, ‘hey, you know they made Move A, so we’ve got to do Move B.’ We’ve got to build and do what we feel jerseys cheap is in our best interest.”

This is a bit of a departure for Tannenbaum. From 2009-13, he had the yeoman’s task of fueling Rex Ryan’s death feud against New England. This often meant acquiring high-profile talent (LaDainian Tomlinson, Bart Scott, Jason Taylor, Plaxico Burress, Antonio Cromartie) and pushing the Jets to their salary-cap limits.

While the Dolphins haven’t exactly been thrifty in free agency since Tannenbaum arrived in Miami, they have definitely taken a less emotional and explosive approach to team building.

The Dolphins prioritized locking down the 26-year-old linebacker after he compiled 115 tackles, two interceptions and four passes defended in 2016, his first year in Miami.

The Dolphins acquired the linebacker in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles after one disappointing season, when Alonso was clearly struggling to return from a knee injury that wiped out his entire 2014 year.

As a rookie with the Buffalo Bills, Alonso became a cult-like figure in Western New York. The tackling demon was all over the field, compiling 159 tackles and football jerseys cheap and four interceptions in 2013.

Alonso had an up-and-down campaign in 2016, sometimes looking like his former rangy self, while in other games getting lost in the wash versus the run and looking slowed by hand and hamstring injuries. Pro Football Focus ranked Alonso their 48th linebacker in 2016.

Nike Dolphins #20 Reshad Jones White Men's Stitched NFL Vapor Untouchable Limited JerseyThe Miami Dolphins inked the productive and versatile linebacker to a two-year, $12 million deal, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The 30-year-old was a first-round pick by the Steelers organization back in 2007 and just finished the tail end of a five-year contract. Nearly all of the money is guaranteed.

Timmons has appeared in fewer than 16 games just once during his career, back in 2009 when he made appearances in 14 of 16 games. His stunning longevity has provided a bedrock in Pittsburgh’s swarming 3-4 defense for years and 2016 may have been one of his finest seasons to date.

In 2016, Timmons picked off a pair of passes, broke up five more cheap nfl nike jerseys, forced a fumble and logged 2.5 sacks to go along with a team-high 78 solo tackles, which is 23 more than the next highest player on the roster, Ryan Shazier.

Second-year Dolphins head coach Adam Gase is going with the flow in building the 2017 rendition of his team. His defense is already loaded with veteran talent and Timmons will be another seasoned professional added to the mix.

The team appears to have wooed him in style during the opening hours of free agency.

Report: Bruce Arians, Cards officials dine with Mitchell Trubisky

The Arizona Cardinals are expressing plenty of interest in some of the NFL draft’s top quarterback prospects of late, including North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky.

Trubisky spent Monday night eating at Phoenix restaurant Steak 44 with head coach Bruce Arians, general manager Steve Keim and team president Michael Bidwell jersey, according to Fox Sports 910’s Mike Jurecki. That’s just a slice of the Cardinals’ activity with potential rookie quarterbacks this week: The club also hosted DeShone Kizer of Notre Dame for a pre-draft visit on Monday, and will welcome Clemson’s Deshaun Watson on Wednesday. Prior to this week, the club also conducted a private workout with QB Patrick Mahomes jersey of Texas Tech.

The Cardinals hold the No. 13 overall pick of draft, and the No. 45 overall pick in the second round. Cardinals veteran QB Carson Palmer is 37 and entering his 15th NFL season, so the time could be right for the club to acquire his eventual replacement.

cheap authentic nfl jerseys china

Houston general manager Rick Smith earned praise from his boss for dumping Osweiler’s contract, but now comes the hard part: solving a Texans quarterback position that began to recede at the same time as Matt Schaub’s hairline.

Only Romo knows if Houston’s refusal to wine and dine him cost the team a starting quarterback for 2017. Now Smith and coach Bill O’Brien face a situation in which 2014 fourth-round pick Tom Savage is the presumptive starter despite having just two career starts under his cheap jerseys and belt. As McNair pointed out in Phoenix, Savage has had trouble staying healthy, having been injured in both of his brief stints at quarterback in Houston.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle believes that Savage is likely to start in front of Brandon Weeden and a first-round draft pick to be named later at quarterback. Smith is virtually required to draft a quarterback early this season after failing to take one in the first three rounds during his entire decade running the team with wholesale jerseys.

Nike Titans #27 Eddie George Light Blue Team Color Men's Stitched NFL Vapor Untouchable Limited JerseyThere are few general managers under more pressure to deliver a big-time draft than Smith. He’s trying to move past the Osweiler fiasco and build up a roster that is far weaker than 2016’s AFC South title and playoff win would suggest. Football Outsiders’ metrics ranked Houston as the No. 29 team in the NFL in 2016; the Texans were incredibly fortunate to win nine regular-season games based on a combination of team defense, schedule and some lucky close wins. The defense will get a major boost with the return of J.J. Watt jersey, who went on injured reserve in September. But this is an organization facing high expectations while its would-be savior quarterback joins Jim Nantz in the booth to broadcast some of their games.

“With the 2017 season getting started and teams are preparing to be the best they can be, I think it’s time for me to walk away from the game,” Powers explained in his lengthy goodbye. “The last 8 years have been a joy and wonderful ride. Even though I can still compete and play at a high level, mentally, I’m ready for the next chapter of my life.”

Powers signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens in 2016 after spending his formative years with the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals. The Colts selected Powers in the third round of the 2009 draft.

The cornerback finishes his career with 413 tackles, 74 passes defended, 13 interceptions, three forced fumbles and three sacks. Powers recorded at least one pick in each of his eight seasons in the league.

Terrelle Pryor’s fantasy stock rises by joining Redskins

Terrelle Pryor was a big question mark in this free agency pool, as we wondered if teams would be willing to sign the converted quarterback to a longterm deal after a single (albeit breakout) season as a wide receiver. Instead, it appears Pryro is betting on himself by signing a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins, reportedly turning down a longer-term contract with the Browns. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon already out of the picture in Washington, Pryor will have big shoes to fill as one of the top pass-catchers in a pass-happy offense.

chinese replica soccer jerseys

Walking out the doors of FedExField with Jackson and Garcon are also 214 targets, roughly 35 percent of Kirk Cousins’ attempted passes in 2016. Pryor saw 140 looks last season, bringing in 77 for 1,007 yards and four scores, so volume shouldn’t be an issue in his new home. As a size-speed freak, Pryor should help replace the downfield element lost with Jackson, while simultaneously improving the team’s struggles in the red zone. With Jamison Crowder primarily playing in the slot and last year’s first-round pick Josh Doctson still a health question mark, Pryor should start Week 1 as the No. 1 option for a passing attack that put up 9,189 yards and 55 touchdowns over the last two years.

Now, there are some concerns we should address with Pryor that could trickle into the fantasy realm. First, Pryor has only done it for one year. Now, I’m usually not one to fall down this skeptic line of thinking, but Pryor’s situation as a converted quarterback is unique. We should be sure to study his cheap jerseys and tape in the preseason to make sure teams haven’t figured him out, though that could be moot given Pryor’s immense athletic gifts.

This is not to say I personally support the ostentatiously designed duds. After all, they are the first uniforms in NFL history to wipe out an entire segment of their viewing audience simply by existing. That is an unquestionable design flaw.

That said, they do get people talking, and I suppose the shadowy league figures on Park Avenue take solace in that, even if many of the jerseys for sale and reviews have been less than flattering.

The Washington Redskins — no stranger to uniform controversy — don’t care. Tucked into a large group of potential rule change proposals released by the league on Thursday is a proposal by wholesale jerseys the ‘Skins to opt out of Color Rush forever. Forget that the team has never had to actually play in a game wearing Color Rush threads (at least not yet). Their one-word explanation for the rule change is a perfect example how sometimes one thousands words are unnecessary when one can just as effectively drop the hammer.

While Cousins’ explanation leaves room for semantical gymnastics, Mike Jones of the Washington Post wrote Tuesday that he has been unable to find a single source to confirm a trade demand by the quarterback.

If that’s the case, it’s natural to wonder if the ostensibly strained relationship might be repairable after all.

After speaking with Snyder and Redskins president Bruce Allen, Cousins was reassured of his standing with the organization’s braintrust.

“I felt very much supported,” Cousins continued, “and felt the owner and president of the team want me to be the quarterback there and to be the quarterback there for a long time.”

Nike Redskins #21 Sean Taylor Burgundy Red Team Color Men's Stitched NFL Vapor Untouchable Limited JerseyThe 2016 Pro Bowler’s rare leverage via the mechanism of back-to-back franchise tags leaves his long-term future up in the air. It would cost the Redskins a seemingly prohibitive $34.5 million to apply the franchise tag a third time, leaving the riskier $28 million transition tag in play next offseason.

Cousins’ camp understandably insists on negotiating from the starting point of his $23.94 million salary for 2017. To this point, though, the team’s best offer was $20 million annually with “low guarantees,” ESPN.com’s John Keim reported.

If the sides can’t find common ground in the next month, would the Redskins simply draft his replacement and allow him to walk as an unrestricted free agent in 2018? Cousins isn’t banking on gaining his chinese jerseys freedom next offseason.

“If a team has franchise tagged me two years in a row, it’s because they expect me to play at a high level,” Cousins said. “If we play at a very high level and if we win a Super Bowl next year, I’m pretty confident they’ll tag me and bring me back. If the season goes the way everyone wants it to and hopes it will, then let’s hope I’m getting tagged again. There’s still more of this story to write.”

Barring a new contract to beat the July 15 deadline for players assigned the franchise designation, it’s a story we’ll continue to write throughout the the 2017 season.

Jones: Tony Romo one of best Cowboys players ever

The Dallas Cowboys officially parted ways with quarterback Tony Romo on Tuesday.

Romo will join CBS as the station’s lead analyst.

Upon Romo’s retirement, owner Jerry Jones called the quarterback, who had been with the Cowboys for 14 seasons, one of the best players in the franchise’s illustrious history.

“We wish Tony and his family nothing but the best,” Jones said in a statement. “As an organization, we did what he asked us to do in terms of his release, and we wanted to do what was ultimately in his best interest and in cheap mlb jerseys the best interest of his family.

“Tony has been a wonderful representative of the Cowboys organization for 14 years, and he left everything he had on the field. He will leave us with many great memories and a legacy of being, truly, one of the greatest players in Cowboys history. We are thrilled for him and his family that he will be able to continue working as a professional in the game he so dearly loves.

“He is a young man who is just getting started on a long journey in life. All the best my friend.”

Despite questions about his future, and the Cowboys’ delay in releasing Romo, it’s clear that his relationship with the organization never deteriorated.

“Tony Romo has a unique combination of athletic ability, arm talent, vision, and instincts for the game,” coach Jason Garrett added. “What separates Tony from many other players, however, is a rare competitive spirit. Tony loves to play. Tony loves to compete. The best ones always do. In practice. During games. On the field. Off the field. Tony competes to the end in wholesale jerseys  everything that he does.

The first is that early November game against the Kansas City Chiefs at home. The other? Also in Dallas against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving Day.

Of course, the cynic in me is fully prepared for Romo to be in a Cowboys uniform by Thanksgiving this year but assuming all goes according to plan, this will be a palatable breakdown of Romo-Cowboy games. After usurping Phil Simms’ No. 1 slot at the network, all eyes will be on the rookie analyst and he’ll need some seasoning before handling something as public as a Cowboys reunion.

Given the circumstances that led to his meteoric rise in the broadcasting industry, an 11-game head and jerseys for cheap start might be necessary, not just a fortunate break.

It’s also important not to overthink this. Whether or not Romo is ready, CBS will want him in the chair for Cowboys games. This is what they paid for. Thursday night on the Rich Eisen Show, Romo’s broadcast booth partner, Jim Nantz, seemed to have no doubt that he and Romo will be in the chair for both Dallas/CBS crossover games.

“Looks like Romo will be making the turkey and the stuffing and we’ll have a little feast and football with the Chargers and the Cowboys and you’re right, (the Kansas City game) would be Tony’s first game to do with the Cowboys,” Nantz said. “I believe that’s Week 9, yeah, I’m sure for Tony that will be a special thing to look at the Cowboys from that magnificent broadcast booth that they have at Cowboys Stadium.”

Reshad Jones signs five-year extension with Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins are making Reshad Jones one of the highest-paid safeties in the league.

The Fins have signed Jones to a five-year, $55 million contract extension with $35 million in guarantees, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of cheap jerseys and the deal. The Dolphins later confirmed the signing.

The guaranteed portion comes in just under the $40 million that Eric Berry landed from the Chiefs last week.

The backbone of Miami’s secondary, Jones believes he’s the best safety in the league. After becoming the only player with at least five interceptions and more than 100 tackles in 2015, he ranked No. 64 on NFL Network’s The Top 100 Players Of 2016 countdown.

Although a torn rotator cuff limited him to six games wholesale jerseys last year, he continued to show Pro Bowl form early in the season.

“I wish all our guys played with as much effort and heart as that guy plays,” coach Adam Gase said of Jones after the Dolphins’ Week 3 overtime victory versus the Browns.

The Dolphins announced they have given the linebacker a three-year contract extension, keeping Alonso under contract in Miami through 2020. The extension is worth $25 million, including $18.5 million guaranteed, which is tacked on to the $3.9 million restricted tender he received china jerseys this season, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday.

The Dolphins prioritized locking down the 26-year-old linebacker after he compiled 115 tackles, two interceptions and four passes defended in 2016, his first year in Miami.

The Dolphins acquired the linebacker in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles jersey after one disappointing season, when Alonso was clearly struggling to return from a knee injury that wiped out his entire 2014 year.

As a rookie with the Buffalo Bills, Alonso became a cult-like figure in Western New York. The tackling demon was all over the field, compiling 159 tackles and four interceptions in 2013.

The Los Angeles Rams are sending defensive end William Hayes jersey to the Miami Dolphins.

In a trade announced late Thursday night, Los Angeles said the Dolphins have agreed to send their sixth-round pick (No. 206) in exchange for Hayes and the Rams’ seventh-round pick (No. 223).

“Will has been an integral member of our defense since he became a Ram in 2012,” Rams GM Les Snead said in a statement. “His passion set the tone for our defense and served as an example for his teammates. Off the field, he showed compassion as he was a major contributor to the St. Louis and Los Angeles communities, working to improve the plight of the homeless. We wish Will and his family the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.”

Hayes logged five sacks in 14 games for the Rams last season.
