Cowboys’ Rico Gathers: I’m going to be next best TE

Dallas Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers hasn’t played a regular-season game in two professional seasons, yet he’s confident Year 3 will mark his breakout.

The 24-year-old posted a message on Instagram over the weekend stating his goals for 2018 and beyond.

“Facts is facts,” Gathers wrote. “It’s only the beginning. Truth is I’m Ready for more. Been ready for more. The dilemma of me not being ready is over. I got a piece of it last year and it felt so good doing it, y’all will never understand that feeling. It was like the most epic scene of movie before the power goes out in ya house for a few hours and you forget all about what you was watching. I watched those two games the other day and I told myself “Ima be the next best tight end in this league” and I believe that with all my heart. lol y’all continue to hate while I continue to shine I love y’all, y’all make me better. God Knows my heart and that’s all that counts to me. #Blessed #HumbleandHungry #LemmeEat #IWantTheWholePieThisTime #NewSZNSameRZN #killeverything”

Those two games Gathers referred to were last year’s preseason tilts in which he compiled seven catches for 106 yards and two touchdowns, looking every bit the athletic freak that got him drafted despite not playing football in college. However, Gathers suffered a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit during training camp and was eventually placed on injured reserve, ending his season.

The tight end spent his rookie season on the Cowboys’ practice squad after being drafted in the sixth round.

The younger Jones continued to express hesitation in bringing Bryant back at a $12.5 million base salary Thursday night when the attended the inaugural Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award ceremony.

“No one wants to compete and get after it more than Dez,” Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “At the same time, we all know this is a business where everybody has to be accountable. Certainly everybody knows that. That’s a tough one. Certainly we’re going to be grinding it out and trying to determine what is in the best interest of our business.

“Dez understands this is a business. No one thinks more of Dez Bryant than starting at the top, Jerry, and certainly me, his teammates, coach [Jason] Garrett, Will McClay. We all have a tremendous amount of respect for Dez. That’s one of the things that we’re going to have to work through as we move into our future.”

The Cowboys would have an easy time swallowing Bryant’s $16.5 million salary-cap hit if he’d played like a dominant No. 1 receiver in recent years. He hasn’t.

The 29-year-old wide receiver hasn’t reached the 900-yard barrier (let alone 1,000) since 2014. Since signing his new contract in 2015, Bryant is averaging 53.55 yards per game played (2,035 total yards in 38 games). For comparison, the NFL’s top wideout, Antonio Brown, has almost double that average over the same span: 103.35 yards per tilt (4,651 yards in 45 games). Even a 34-year-old Larry Fitzgerald has made Dez look old. Fitzy averaged 70.70 yards per game since 2015. (3,394 yards in 48 games). Bryant is closer (but still not better) than the production of Golden Tate, who has compiled 60.27 yards per game since 2015 (2,893 yards in 48 games) but makes way less money than the Cowboys’ star (Tate: $7 million in 2018; Bryant: $12.5 million).

Since his knee injury in 2016, Bryant hasn’t displayed the same type of explosiveness that could beat defenders one-on-one. As NFL Network’s Bucky Brooks wrote in September, Bryant’s lack of ability to separate from defensive backs in recent seasons, coupled with a limited route tree, has lowered his production significantly.

Players can sign the tender at any point after they are given the designation. Until the tender is signed, the team can rescind the franchise or transition tag — as we saw with Josh Norman two years ago. Once the sheet is signed, the player’s salary is guaranteed for that season. If a player does not sign the tender, they remain without a contract, and therefore are not subject to fine schedules for skipping offseason workouts (as we saw with Bell last summer).

Each team can only use one tag in a given year — they can’t designate both a franchise and transition player. A rescinded tender counts as a tag, meaning a team can’t designate one player, rescind it, and use a new tag on another player in the same year. A player can be tagged up to three times by his team, with a bump in pay each time.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported in December during the NFL’s league meeting that teams were given a 2018 salary cap projection of $174.2-178.1 million, according to a source. The franchise and transition tag numbers will be determined when the final salary cap number is officially set. The salary cap was $167 million in 2017.

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 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.

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.

Nike Cowboys #21 Ezekiel Elliott Navy Blue Thanksgiving Men's Stitched NFL Limited Gold JerseyRomo’s ability to analyze a game already will be under scrutiny without going into his responsibility to be fair to an organization that deified him for the better part of a decade. 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.”

John Harbaugh: Steve Smith welcome back for 2017

Watching Steve Smith haul in his 1,000th career catch on Sunday, it’s natural to wonder if the ageless wide receiver might consider delaying retirement for a second straight year.

Authentic NFL Jersey Sale

Still playing at a high level at age 37, Smith filled a highlight reel with a beautiful, toe-dragging sideline grab, several mad dashes after the catch and a tight-window touchdown reception versus the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

Along with perennial Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda, Smith has been Baltimore’s most valuable offensive player this year. The Ravens are 5-2 in seven games he has started and finished — and winless in the two games he missed with an ankle injury and cheap jerseys.

Coach John Harbaugh conceded Monday that the thought of luring Smith back to Baltimore for a 17th NFL season has “crossed my mind, of course.”

“If he wants to come back, he’s welcome. Absolutely,” Harbaugh continued. “You like every good football player you can get. But I don’t want to speak for Steve. He’s had an unbelievably awesome career.”

Authentic NFL Team Jerseys

Harbaugh isn’t alone in delivering that message. Fellow wideout Mike Wallace revealed that he pitched the idea of another season or two after Smith celebrated his career milestone on Sunday.

Although Wallace noted that Smith is a “special player and a special person with wholesale jerseys,” he acknowledged that the former Carolina Panthers star will “probably” retire.

“But if anybody can keep playing, it’s him,” Wallace added.

Smith is now eighth all-time in receiving yards (14,448) and 13th in receptions (1,005). Anyone who has witnessed his game-wrecking ability year-in and year-out for the past two decades understands his ticket is already punched for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Ravens quarterback returned to practice on Friday after sitting out sessions all week and was listed as questionable on the team’s injury report. Flacco has been dealing with a right shoulder injury he sustained in Sunday’s loss to the Giants.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh told reporters it was “encouraging” to see Flacco at practice, but wouldn’t speculate if the quarterback would be a game-time decision for Sunday.

Best Cheap NFL Jerseys

Flacco’s presence at Friday’s practice reinforces his claim earlier in the week that the shoulder ailment was “nothing to worry about”.

Nike Ravens #5 Joe Flacco Purple Player Pullover NFL HoodieWith the Jets on Baltimore’s docket this week, Flacco would rue missing the opportunity to slice and dice a New York secondary prone to the deep ball. Minor shoulder soreness shouldn’t hold the Ravens quarterback out of this one.

Let’s be fair: If J.J. Watt released a statement like this, he’d get destroyed by every sports blog in existence. Suggs deserves similar ribbing for this strange bravado, as do the Ravens for calling attention to it like it was Al Pacino speech in Any Given Sunday or something. “This may be a season-ending injury for someone else, but it’s not season-ending for a Raven jersey”? Wha?

This might be a call-back to Ravens great Ray Lewis playing through his final season — one that ended with a Super Bowl win over the 49ers — with torn triceps, which, I guess, is in the biceps territory of the upper arm. That said, you can safely assume multiple guys play through similar injuries every season. I’m pretty sure the Ravens haven’t cornered the market on grit.

And what’s this “I come from an era” stuff? Suggs was born in 1982. He began his career in 2003. When we think of the “When Men Were Men” bromide, do we really conjure up memories about the mid-aughts of the NFL?

“It’s most definitely a pain tolerance thing,” Suggs told reporters on Tuesday. “But it’s also a win tolerance thing. How much do you want to win with NFL jerseys?”

Shouldn’t it be lose tolerance? Oh forget it.

Dallas Cowboys inform Tony Romo he will be released

Tony Romo arrived in Dallas in 2003 as an unknown, undrafted player from Eastern Illinois. On Thursday, the Cowboys will release the 14-year veteran into free agency with cheap soccer jerseys for the first time in his career.

Wholesale Soccer Jerseys

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Jane Slater reported that the Cowboys have told Romo that he will be released, according to a source informed of the decision. When the new league year starts Thursday at 4 p.m. ET, Romo will be free to sign with any team’ wholesale jerseys he chooses.

The timing allows Romo to find a new home faster and could create more potential landing spots for him. Rapoport reported Wednesday the Broncos and Texans are “very interested suitors,” meaning they will be fighting over a quarterback for the second straight offseason. The Texans “won” the battle to sign Brock Osweiler last March and they are looking for help once again.

Rapoport expects Romo to take a Peyton Manning-style visit tour in the coming days, so don’t necessarily expect a quick signing. The release also indicates that the Cowboys jerseys were not confident in their ability to inspire any trade compensation for Romo, especially under the terms of his previous contract.

Authentic Soccer Jerseys Wholesale

Romo was set to make $14 million in 2017 with the Cowboys. He might wind up making that money this season elsewhere, but any contract will likely build in protections for injury. Romo didn’t even last three series in the 2016 preseason before suffering a compression fracture in his back. Romo also broke his clavicle in 2015 and has not played more than two games in a row since the 2014 season. He’s a huge injury risk for any team that signs him, having also undergone previous disk surgery, suffered two transverse process fractures, two broken clavicles and had a cyst removed from his spine.

That injury history spells out the inherent risk in signing Romo. He will turn 37 years old in April and there is no guarantee he will last even half a season. The Texans could be more attractive to Romo because they have a better offensive line than Denver, and it’s possible Romo would not have to uproot his family in Dallas. The Broncos, meanwhile, have a championship defense and pedigree. Signing Romo despite his risk makes particular sense for spirit jersey wholesale and Denver because the team doesn’t necessarily need Romo. They have two promising young quarterbacks in Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch and could survive if Romo was hurt once again. The Texans have a more pressing need at quarterback but less cap space and are already forking over $16 million guaranteed to Osweiler in 2017.

Nike Cowboys #21 Ezekiel Elliott Navy Blue Thanksgiving Throwback Men's Stitched NFL Limited JerseyAppearing on Monday’s edition of NFL Total Access, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport emphasized that the Dallas Cowboys are in no rush to unload Tony Romo.

Owner Jerry Jones has made it clear that he’s perfectly willing to “read some tea leaves” before finalizing a Romo game plan.

If, for example, the Broncos and Texans have competing interest in Romo’s services, would one of those teams be willing to surrender a draft pick once the quarterback dominoes start to fall later this week?

As Rapoport pointed out, there’s no bonus in Romo’s contract to establish an artificial deadline. The Cowboys’ salary cap is a non-factor at this point.

Jones stressed Monday, via The Dallas Morning News, that he and Romo each have a “high tolerance for ambiguity,” which means both player and team’s NFL jerseys are comfortable with the notion that the situation might play out “for really quite a while here.”

The bottom line: There’s no timetable to trade or release Romo jersey. Don’t be surprised if he’s still in Dallas by the time the smoke clears at the end of the week.

‘Mutual interest’ between Nick Foles, Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys spent all of last season churning through injured and ineffective quarterbacks. 2016 is off to a similar start.

With backup passer Kellen Moore jersey expected to be out three to four months with the broken ankle he suffered on Tuesday, the ‘Boys already have eyes for the league’s most available veteran passer: Nick Foles.

“It really seems they’re going to have to take a hard look at the veteran quarterback market, and the name to watch is Nick Foles,” NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday on NFL Network, per team sources. “There is legitimate interest. I’m told the Cowboys — that would be the name if they are going to bring in a backup.”

wholesale MLB jerseys

Garafolo reported earlier Wednesday that Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones talked to Foles’ agent. The Cowboys were one of a handful of teams interested in Foles and there was a chance he could sign with a team as early as Wednesday night, Garafolo added.

Foles is likely the best option for the Cowboys at this point. The team’s other top options, according to Rapoport, include executing a trade with the Browns for Josh McCown jersey or plucking Jimmy Clausen out of free agency.

The Cowboys have fourth-round rookie Dak Prescott on the roster, but the team lacks an experienced veteran behind starter Tony Romo. Cowboys fans could argue that owner and general manager Jerry Jones didn’t do enough to bolster NBA jerseys and this ultra-critical position in the offseason, especially after watching Dallas burn to the ground last autumn when the combination of Moore, Brandon Weeden and wholesale jerseys and Matt Cassel floundered in Romo’s place.

Rapoport noted that Dallas did its homework on Foles even before he was released by Los Angeles, saying: “They did work on him when the Rams were trying to shop him. There’s a lot of mutual interest there for the Cowboys and Nick Foles.”

Nike Cowboys #82 Jason Witten White Men's Stitched NFL Elite Gold JerseyTwo weeks before the start of the 2016 season, Dallas’ backfield appears to have an embarrassment of riches.

Granted a first-team audition with No. 4 overall pick Ezekiel Elliott jersey sidelined by a hamstring injury, rejuvenated power back Alfred Morris trampled the Dolphins defense for 100 yards on 14 first-half touches.

The former Redskins Pro Bowler broke tackles, bounced runs to the outside and showed fresh legs against an uninspired Miami defense. Morris looked like “a guy who can rush for 1,000 yards,” NFL Media analyst Charley Casserly noted on Thursday’s edition of Good Morning Football.

Cowboys teammates were particularly impressed after trying to tackle their division foe twice annually for four years.

“He’s like a train coming through there,” cornerback Morris Claiborne marveled, via ESPN.com. “He runs so hard and so low. It makes it tough to get him down.”

Morris flashed that same burst in last year’s season opener before losing his quickness and playmaking ability as the season dragged on.

Will lightning strike twice for the Cowboys’ backfield?

Disparaged as an injury-prone, washed-up tease throughout last offseason and into the summer, McFadden ended up reaching 1,000 rushing yards for just the second time in his career. In fact, he generated more 100-yard rushing performances than any tailback save Adrian Peterson — despite being relegated to a backup role until late October.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday Dak Prescott will start Week 8 versus the Philadelphia Eagles jerseys, per a source informed of the situation.

Dak Prescott told NFL Network’s Jane Slater on Wednesday with cheap jerseys he hasn’t been informed that he will start against the Eagles but said he’d be excited to get another start.

authentic Nike NFL jerseys

The news doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who watched Prescott through six weeks.

Rapoport noted that Tony Romo might not be physically ready to play versus the Cleveland Browns in Week 9. The Cowboys will be prudent with their 36-year-old quarterback coming off a back injury. Coach Jason Garrett told reporters Wednesday Romo hasn’t been cleared for practice, but is throwing more and working on enhancing his core strength.

Health is a convenient excuse for Dallas to keep Romo on the sideline. Even if he were healthy, the Cowboys shouldn’t bench Prescott at this point.

The offense is rolling behind a punishing offensive line, Ezekiel Elliott and the sublime play of Prescott. The rookie quarterback jersey frequently throws darts under pressure, displays heady decision making and elusiveness without the tendency to flee the pocket too early.

The stats speak for themselves. Prescott broke Tom Brady’s record (162) for most pass attempts without an interception to begin a career, which ended at 176 against Green Bay on Sunday. He earned a passer rating over 100.0 in five of six starts. Prescott has completed 68.7 percent of his passes, second-highest among quarterbacks that started every game this season (Matthew Stafford). His 8.2 yard per attempt average is the fifth highest in NFL. The 7-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio speaks for itself — only Brian Hoyer has thrown more passes with fewer picks.

The Cowboys might have had a mutiny on their hands if they benched Dak. That won’t happen after the bye week.
