We’re a week and a half into the new year and the Cincinnati Bengals remain coach-less in 2019.

Allen earned his redemption after being kicked out of Texas Tech. Now Authentic David Edwards Jersey , he’s on his way to earning a starting spot." 2019 Los Angeles Rams Regular Season2019 Los Angeles Rams Offseason2019 Los Angeles Rams roster preview: LB Dakota Allen has what it takes to be a starterNew,4commentsAllen earned his redemption after being kicked out of Texas Tech. Now, he’s on his way to earning a starting spot.CDTBy now, most of us know Los Angeles Rams LB Dakota Allen’s story: kicked out of Texas Tech after being charged with second-degree felony burglary, forced to play his redshirt sophomore season at East Mississippi Community College in hopes of attracting another Division I offer, and finally returned to the place where it all started — Lubbock, Texas. Allen finished his final two seasons with the Red Raiders as the leader of the defense and gained the attraction of NFL scouts. The Rams liked him enough to use their final pick on him. A chance. That’s all Allen really needs. Roster BattleWith LB Cory Littleton cemented as a starter with LB Clay Matthews and LB Micah Kiser likely filling up the other inside linebacking spot David Edwards Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , Allen will have to prove his worth in two ways — as a viable backup or as a capable starter that can take the field in certain situations. It shouldn’t be difficult for Allen, who is a strong, athletic and versatile linebacker. In my opinion, he is capable of overtaking Bryce Hager’s spot. ExpectationsAllen was one of the best pass-defending linebackers in the nation, and it’s likely he can adapt his defensive skills against the NFL passing game. Allen is also a sure-tackler and a solid defender against the run. His final season at Texas Tech earned him an honoree slot on the First Team All-Big 12. Through 10 games, he made 61 tackles, 5.5 TFL and two pass deflections. His best seasons were in 2016 with EMCC (117 tackles) and 2017 (101 tackles). Chances of making the roster (9/10)If you’ve watched Last Chance U Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Stitched , you know that the guys who went from Division I to EMCC hardly ever attract the same kind of offers they did when they were high school recruits. Allen not only received the same caliber offers, he was given another shot by Texas Tech and he gave the Red Raiders a great return on their investment in him. That kind of tenacity is difficult to ignore, and it’s likely going to be the engine that drives Allen into a spot on the final 53-man roster this year. He’s a capable linebacker who will become an NFL starter soon, if not this year. CDTShareTweetShareShareWhile fans want offensive line help, the Los Angeles Rams could pull off surprise pickKirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsIn the first-round of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders defied expectations and reached for the player that they wanted: Clemson Tigers EDGE Clelin Ferrell. Was it the smart pick? Probably not. They likely could have traded back to get the same player ten picks later. However, the heart wants what it wants.The Los Angeles Rams did in fact trade with the Atlanta Falcons to get out of the first-round in order to acquire a second-round (45th) and another third-round selection (79th). This signals that the organization doesn’t have one player that they’re in love with. If the Rams truly wanted David Edwards Jersey nfl draft , let’s say, Texas A&M Aggies C Erik McCoy, they could have gotten him with the 31st pick. Or, some would argue, they are confident that he’ll still be around at 45, or maybe even Florida Gators OT Jawaan Taylor could be available. I’m not so sure about this plan. Seems to me that GM Les Snead operates on his own weird, beach-bum rhythm and that means that just like the 2017 NFL Draft Custom David Edwards Jersey , the Rams could be selecting a player like TE Gerald Everett that may seem out of left field.No, I’m not saying the Rams are going to select a tight end, but they may have their eyes on a prospect that could be considered a... curious pick. That’s what is fun and frustrating about the draft. Fans can spend hours combing the draft boards in an effort to find the best fit for the Rams and 90% of the time, the team goes in a different direction. And the Rams have the lucky trend on their side — a run on pass catchers.So, yeah... I really want the Rams to pick Erik McCoy because it makes sense for the team. Chances are, he won’t be available. And even if he is, the Rams will make a pick that will force fans to Google a name that they have never heard before. The Rams have had good luck in the third-round as of late Discount David Edwards Jersey , grabbing talent like S John Johnson III and WR Cooper Kupp. So, in Snead we trust. Sure, let’s go with that.

This was fully expected, as earlier this week, we shared the report from friend-of-the-site Terez Paylor of Yahoo! Sports.It appears (via trusty ol’ Instagram) that Jones is instead working out in Miami.Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked about the dialogue between him and Jones after his absence on Thursday. “I don’t know that—I don’t know how they’re talking to him,” he said initially.“Oh, you’re talking about me? I haven’t talked to him... we don’t get into that (Jones’ attendance). We just go. You’re here, you get better. You’re not, you don’t.”This answer should be expected from Reid http://www.chiefslockerroom.com/authentic-mitch-morse-jersey , who has historically avoided commenting on missing players, but the sentiment was clear—obviously, he’d rather Jones be with the team.As a reminder, OTAs are voluntary, though players historically use attendance (or lack thereof) as a method of pushing along contract talks.We’ve noted before that Jones is due to make a $1.19 million base salary in 2019, according to Over the Cap. He projects to make somewhere between $18 million and $22 million a year under a new contract.I wouldn’t expect to see Jones at all during OTAs. Things will get more interesting June 11, which is the first day of the Chiefs’ mandatory minicamp.Jones had 15.5 sacks, 29 quarterback hits, 40 tackles (35 solo), five passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one interception for a touchdown in 2018. Four years ago Womens Xavier Williams Jersey , Ray Rice received a two-game suspension for knocking his then-fiancee unconscious in an elevator. And then video of Rice knocking his then-fiancee unconscious in an elevator emerged. And Rice has never played again.While the ultimate fate of Kareem Hunt remains unknown, it’s already clear that the NFL will be using a familiar page from the Personal Conduct Policy playbook when it comes to the latest example of a player being caught on video committing violence against a female: Hunt will pay a steep price for the simple fact that everyone has now seen what he did months ago.Before Friday, the February incident had been a blip on the radar screen, with allegations emerging at the time and a couple of questions being posed to Kareem Hunt (and team owner Clark Hunt) by reporters during training camp. The NFL had said, and had leaked, nothing about the investigation. There had been no indication that the league had met with Hunt on the matter, or that the league had even interviewed the alleged victim, who clearly was looking for some type of justice. (Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the league contends that the alleged victim did not respond to multiple messages left for her.)There likewise had been little said or done about a June incident during which Hunt allegedly punched a man. While publicly known, the league had said or done nothing to make it clear that Hunt was facing discipline for the incident. (TMZ had a report on the incident at the time, but it has released no video. Yet.)Now Tyrann Mathieu Jersey , less than two days after video of the February incident emerged, the NFL is mobilizing, leaking the notion that Hunt could get more than the baseline six games for an incident of off-field violence in February because there was a second alleged incident of off-field violence in June. While Hunt fully deserves scrutiny and punishment, it’s fair to wonder whether he would have been suspended even for one game if TMZ hadn’t purchased and played the February video.As explained on Saturday, the league may have overcorrected after the Ezekiel Elliott situation, searching for a middle ground between Rice and Elliott that responds to off-field behavioral issues only when 聽a response is unavoidable. The recent focus-on-football approach, apparently championed by new P.R. executive Jocelyn Moore, compels discretion and silence when it comes to player misconduct, so that attention to all the points being scored on the field won’t be undermined or diluted by stories about players getting in trouble off the field.Cowboys owner Jerry Jones aggressively argued in connection with the Elliott case that the league should get out of the business of doing what the criminal justice system hasn’t done. In Hunt’s case, it’s entirely possible that, in the absence of an arrest http://www.chiefslockerroom.com/authenti...thony-sherman-jersey , criminal charges, a civil lawsuit, or any type of media focus on the two incidents, the league decided that the best approach was to do nothing, until it had no choice but to do something.Now that it has no choice but to do something, the league may be doing everything. And it’s making sure that everyone realizes that, when Hunt eventually receives an extensive suspension, it will be not just because of the February incident but because of a June incident that possibly would have continued to remain largely under the rug.None of this should be surprising. The league’s insistence on policing the behavior of players during the many hours, days, weeks, and months when they’re not playing or practicing football comes directly from the P.R. damage that comes from tales of NFL players getting in trouble. So when it’s obvious that players have gotten in trouble Womens Harrison Butker Jersey , it’s important to act.聽What the NFL seems to be realizing post-Elliott is that, from a P.R. standpoint, the better outcome may be to do nothing to make it obvious that a player has gotten in trouble. If/when TMZ publishes a video that pulls into public view things the NFL privately knew or should have known about, the league can and will mobilize aggressively against someone the league arguably should have already mobilized against.That won’t prevent questions from being asked about what the league knew and when the league knew it. But with so much of the attention falling to the player who got himself into trouble, fair and pointed questions about whether the NFL had the video or should have gotten the video or should have taken more aggressive action before the video emerged can more easily be avoided.In the end, it may not be a perfect balance, but the league possibly has concluded that it’s a far better balance than creating its own bad P.R. by making a big deal out of something that no one else seems to care about.

Safety Earl Thomas was destined to play in this Sunday’s game between the Ravens and the Chiefs Xavier Williams Jersey , but it initially appeared he’d be on Kansas City’s side of the matchup.Thomas was close to signing with the Chiefs in March when the Ravens swooped in with a bigger offer and snagged the veteran to anchor their secondary. That decision leaves him tasked with trying to stop the Kansas City offense from hitting on long gains in the matchup of 2-0 teams at Arrowhead Stadium.Last year’s game between the teams saw the Chiefs prevail 27-24 in overtime and a 48-yard fourth-down pass to Tyreek Hill helped the Chiefs get in position to force the extra period. Thomas believes his presence will make a big difference.“Luckily the Ravens have me playing free safety, controlling the deep end,” Thomas said Jordan Lucas Jersey , via the team’s website. “I plan on eliminating all the big plays.”Eliminating Chiefs big plays has been a losing battle just about every week since the start of the 2018 season. If Thomas and the Ravens can buck that trend, they may well be flying back to Baltimore with a win.

No trades can become official until the start of the new league year on Wednesday https://www.raiderslockerroom.com/authentic-derek-carr-jersey , so Antonio Brown hasn’t been traded yet and a report on the machinations that led to an agreement sending him to the Raiders includes word that things almost fell apart on Saturday.Albert Breer of SI.com reports that the deal was “on the verge of crumbling” as the Raiders spoke to Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus about the new contract that Brown was looking for as part of any deal. It’s not clear what the sticking point was, but the end result was agreement on a trade and on a new deal with $30 million in guaranteed money.Rosenhaus appeared on NFL Network Sunday and confirmed the timing of the start to talks with the Raiders. He said that Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock drove a hard bargain in the first high-profile move since leaving the world of television to take the job.The expected deal to Oakland came after a near agreement with Buffalo was sidelined by Brown’s contract desires. Philadelphia and Washington also reportedly put in calls on Friday after the Buffalo deal was set aside, although Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that talks with Philly never got serious.Jon Gruden and Sean McVay with striking similarities, downplay mentor connection before season opening match-up The Los Angeles Rams caught everyone by surprise last year with their impressive offense and even better defense. There are honestly few teams more complete from top to bottom than the Rams are and they got undeniably better this off-season with the additions of DT Ndamukong Suh on defense and WR Brandon Cooks on offense. It’ll be a tall order to play them week 1 and come out if it with the victory.For the Oakland Raiders to get the underdog win Monday night against the Rams they are going to have to play their absolute best football. Besides having to stop Todd Gurley along with the impressive passing offense the Rams have, the Raiders are also going to have to score against the Rams stellar defense too. To make things even more interesting though, they also have to beat one of Jon Gruden’s prot茅g茅s with him having a very close relationship to LA coach Sean McVay.For those of you that didn’t hear the story repeatedly when the Raiders faced the Rams in Preseason week 2, Jon Gruden and Sean McVay have very close family ties. It was actually McVay’s grandfather who gave Gruden’s father his first coaching job, and the families have been extremely close ever since. Gruden even gave Sean McVay his first NFL coaching experience when he hired him onto Gruden’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers coaching staff. Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson was also on that Tampa Bay staff Derek Carr Jersey White , and he was McVay’s QB coach last season with the Rams before returning to the Raiders with Jon Gruden this season. While in LA he couldn’t help but notice that Sean McVay had even inherited some of Gruden’s mannerisms.“I used to say Sean used to use a lot of Gruden-isms.” Greg Olson said of McVay at his press conference yesterday. “How he spoke to the team and his message and mannerisms. I think there were a lot of similarities there that Sean had picked up. Certainly, they’re two different coaches, two different people. When I first got to Sean’s staff I thought that was entertaining to say the least on some of the mannerism that he used.”Considering how close of a connection Gruden and McVay share it isn’t too surprising if McVay emulates some of Gruden’s style, though it does add an interesting level of intrigue to this upcoming season opener. Which one of these coaches will better use their knowledge of the other to lead their team to victory?It’s a tough question because of it being their first real game facing off against each other. Toss out the preseason game they just played too because neither coach tipped their hand in that one. It was as plain of play calling in that game as you will ever see, even by preseason standards that game was boring. It actually must have been difficult to coach a game that was that devoid of personality for both of these coaches.That won’t be the case Monday night, this time it’s for real. Will it be the teacher or the pupil who gets the better of the other though, that is what we will all be waiting impatiently to find out. However, if you think Gruden would admit to this game being more meaningful considering it’s against one of his closest friends and pupils you’d be dead wrong. Gruden says he doesn’t think about who is on the other side at all Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey , a classic Gruden hyperbole if I’ve seen one.“I don’t really care who we play.” Gruden said when asked if the game mattered more to him because of McVay. “We always learned a long time ago the other team are faceless objects. You have to look at it that way. They can beat you up really bad in pro football, no matter who you play. So having the utmost respect for the Rams. Obviously, when the game is over it will be great to see Sean. You got to treat every game as its own and we want to win because it’s time to play.”As if it was right on cue, Sean McVay was asked about how he feels about playing Gruden too and his response was eerily similar. When reading this it makes you realize just how right Greg Olson is about McVay’s use of “Gruden-isms”.”Yeah, what you talk about is, I think everybody knows the appreciation you have for what Jon has meant to my family and to me personally, as a coach. But, this is about the Rams versus the Raiders. What we try to do a great job of as coaches Womens Bo Jackson Jersey , is really focusing on getting ready for that opponent and once you get into the stadium, it’s going to be about the Raiders versus the Rams and that’s exactly what it’s about.” McVay said at his Rams press conference.“Regardless of the relationships that you have, the coaching profession is such a small one, but it’s about doing everything in our power to try to come away with a win and I know he would say the same exact thing. We’ve got a whole lot of respect for what they’re going to present and a lot of different problems in all three phases and it’s a challenge that we’re excited about.”Yep, two peas in a pod. Now we will get to see if their play-calling is just as similar too when they face off this Monday. The Rams have the better roster (sorry, they do) but the Raiders have the mentor while the Rams have the pupil. Will that be enough for the Raiders to get the surprise victory or will it be the pupil who becomes the master instead? I don’t know, but I’m very excited to find out this Monday night.

(STATS) – Coaches Trey Flowers Jersey , players and teams on the move have been defining the FCS in 2017. But it’s all come back to the two rocks that have stood their ground to create one of the more anticipated championship games in the history of the subdivision. When you look at the 10 storylines that defined the year, former Liberty running back Rashad Jennings’ win on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” doesn’t quite make the cut. There were even better moves and cutbacks at FCS stadiums across the nation in 2017. Happy holidays. —= A program worthy of “GameDay” – With apologies to Fargo, North Dakota, the FCS capital in 2017 has been Harrisonburg, Virginia. Having reigned all year as the national champion, James Madison has been No. 1-ranked since the preseason, is in the midst of a 26-game winning streak (second-longest in FCS history), beat an FBS opponent (East Carolina), had the second-highest home attendance average in the FCS (21,724) and drew ESPN’s iconic “College GameDay” preview show back to campus for the second time in three seasons. Coach Mike Houston and his program will seek to go back-to-back against North Dakota State in the FCS title game on Jan. 6 in Frisco, Texas. Coaching changes – The coaching carousel has gone off the tracks with 21 schools already having a head coaching change since the start of the 2017 season – more specifically, since October. It started with Alabama State, where Donald Hill-Eley has replaced Brian Jenkins, and has included one of the biggest national programs, Montana, where Bobby Hauck has replaced Bob Stitt for a second stint with the Griz. Wofford’s legendary Mike Ayers Damon Harrison Jersey , one of the winningest coaches in the FCS, retired after guiding the Southern Conference program to the FCS quarterfinals. Big changes in the Big South – Like coaches, FCS conferences keep changing, and, oh, was a lot centered around the Big South. Liberty, a 10-time Big South champ, announced in February that the 2017 season would be its last in the subdivision before becoming an FBS independent. It was known already that Campbell (2018) and North Alabama (2019) would be joining the Big South, but then in surprises, Hampton announced it would leave the MEAC for the Big South (in 2018 or 2019), and Presbyterian said it would leave the Big South after the 2019 season to drop football scholarships and join the Pioneer Football League in 2021. FCS Awards winners – The year opened with five claiming the STATS FCS Awards for the 2016 season – Sam Houston State quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe (Walter Payton), Northern Iowa defensive end Karter Schult (Buck Buchanan), Duquesne running back A.J. Hines (Jerry Rice), Sam Houston coach K.C. Keeler (Eddie Robinson) and Eastern Kentucky quarterback Tyler Swafford (Doris Robinson Scholar-Athlete). The 2017 banquet is approaching on Jan. 5. Among the finalists, Briscoe will be back in Frisco, seeking to become the second two-time Payton winner Ricky Jean Francois Jersey , and Kennesaw State linebacker Bryson Armstrong is the first defensive player to win the Rice Award. NFL talent – Former FCS players continue to fill NFL rosters, with 15 more drafted this year and others going the undrafted free agent’s route. The Kansas City Chiefs made Villanova defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon the first selection from the FCS (second round, 59th overall), and others such as Eastern Washington wide receiver Cooper Kupp (Los Angeles Rams), North Carolina A&T running back Tarik Cohen (Chicago Bears), San Diego cornerback/returner Jamal Agnew (Detroit Lions) and Bucknell left tackle Julie’n Davenport (Houston Texans) followed along the pipeline of talent. FC-yes! to beating the FBS – As a 45-point underdog, MEAC member Howard kicked off a banner season with a 43-40 victory at UNLV. Eight other FCS teams joined in the fun of beating the upper echelon of Division I: Tennessee State (17-10 over Georgia State), James Madison (34-14 over East Carolina), Liberty (48-45 over Baylor), New Hampshire (22-12 over Georgia Southern), South Dakota (35-27 over Bowling Green), North Carolina A&T (35-31 over Charlotte), Idaho State (30-28 over Nevada) and Western Illinois (52-10 over Coastal Carolina). Injuries, injuries and more injuries – The good news for 2018 is the FCS will have an even higher level of talent because of returning medical redshirts. But the injury bug that hit All-Americans in the offseason/preseason with the likes of North Dakota cornerback Deion Harris, Princeton running back John Lovett, North Dakota State defensive end Greg Menard and Central Arkansas left tackle Stockton Mallett never slowed down. Fordham running back Chase Edmonds’ pursuit of the FCS career rushing record was sabotaged by leg injuries Christian Jones Jersey , while running backs Elijah Ibitokun-Hanks of Albany, Cardon Johnson of James Madison and Joe Protheroe of Cal Poly, wide receivers Emmanuel Butler of Northern Arizona and DeVonte Dedmon of William & Mary and safeties Cole Reyes of North Dakota and Rob Rolle of Villanova were among the many who barely played this season. Turnarounds and titles – Austin Peay coach Will Healy is the 2017 STATS FCS Eddie Robinson Award winner for a good reason. The Governors were 0-2, mired in a 29-game losing streak and had lost 46 of 47 when they turned around their program with a stunning 8-4 season. It was a year for the surprise teams as the likes of Northeast Conference champ Central Connecticut State, Columbia, Elon, Furman, Howard, Monmouth and Sacramento State enjoyed turnarounds. But shout out to the other teams that joined Central Connecticut State as conference champs: Southern Utah and Weber State (Big Sky), Kennesaw State (Big South), James Madison (CAA), Yale (Ivy), North Carolina A&T (MEAC), North Dakota State (Missouri Valley), Jacksonville State (Ohio Valley), Lehigh and Colgate (Patriot) Devon Kennard Jersey , San Diego (Pioneer), Wofford (Southern), Central Arkansas (Southland) and Grambling State (SWAC). Impossible playoff bubble – Everybody seemed to be in agreement the number of candidates for at-large playoff spots was bigger than most years. Many of them lost on the final full weekend of the regular season, causing even more uncertainty. The scenarios made for a lot of negative talk surrounding teams that didn’t qualify, including Austin Peay (8-4) and Delaware (7-4), which selection committee chair Richard Johnson said were the last two left out of the field, as well as Eastern Washington and McNeese. New Hampshire’s inclusion on a 14th straight bid drew a lot of ire, yet the CAA power went on to win two playoff games. Championship game so many wanted – In the 40th year of the FCS playoffs, there’s no doubt the two best programs have reached the national championship game. Many people had tasted another meeting between No. 1 seed James Madison (14-0) and No. 2 seed North Dakota State (13-1) since the Dukes stopped NDSU’s five-year reign as national champ on the way to their second FCS title last year (the first was in 2003). They punched their tickets to the title game with blowout wins in the semifinals and enter the title showdown with talent-laden and battle-tested lineups. Is this Damon Harrison insurance or just potential depth?" Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions have shown ‘greatest interest’ in free agent nose-tackle Domata Peko New,44commentsIs this Damon Harrison insurance or just potential depth? EDTAfter waiving tight end Michael Roberts, the Detroit Lions’ roster stands at 89 players—one short of the 90-man limit right now. With a month of practice-less offseason ahead of them, the Lions will likely use the next few weeks to scour the talent pool available before they add another player to contend at training camp next month. The search apparently has already begun, as the Lions have shown serious interest in former Broncos nose tackle Domata Peko. Peko told NFL.com that Detroit hosted him for a visit last week, and that Detroit has shown more interest in him than any other NFL team this offseason.This is a pretty interesting development, because it’s extremely easy to see where Peko fits into the equation on the Lions defense. The 34-year old veteran nose tackle would likely serve one of two purposes: Damon Harrison Sr. insurance or simply rotational depth behind Harrison. Just listen to Von Miller talk about Peko in 2017 and substitute “Snacks” and Davis in appropriate spots:Harrison sat out of all offseason workouts, reportedly in the hopes to get a new contract with the Lions. There are no indications from the Lions nor Harrison that they’ve come closer to an agreement. So Peko Will Harris Detroit Lions Jersey , who has started at least 10 games in 12 straight seasons, could potentially come in and replace Harrison if his holdout stretches into the regular season. It could also help Detroit with negotiations, hoping to convince Harrison that he’s not as essential as he thinks. Of course, that could all be an over-analysis of the situation. The Lions got a good look at their nose tackle depth with Harrison sitting out of OTAs and minicamp, and perhaps they simply didn’t like what they saw. Seventh-round rookie PJ Johnson and John Atkins saw plenty of work at the nose tackle position, and it’s certainly possible Detroit is no longer comfortable with those two backing up “Snacks.” Adding Peko would boost Detroit’s depth, as he is the proven run-stopper Detroit needs when Harrison wants a breather. Regardless of Detroit’s intentions, terms have not been agreed upon yet, and there is no guarantee Peko joins the Lions. For now, it’s a situation to simply keep an eye on.

BALTIMORE (AP) — As long as Mike Tomlin is standing on the Pittsburgh sideline Jordan Evans Jersey White , watching Ben Roethlisberger pass to Antonio Brown or give the ball to Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers will be favored to win the AFC North.It makes no difference that Randy Fichtner is the new offensive coordinator, or that Roethlisberger turned 36 in March.The Steelers are going to score points, and they’re going to play their best against division rivals in big games.Baltimore knows this all too well. Two years ago, Bell rushed for 122 yards and Roethlisberger connected with Brown for a last-minute touchdown in a 31-27 victory that clinched the AFC North title.Last December, Roethlisberger threw for 506 yards and two TDs, Bell scored twice and the Steelers beat the Ravens 39-38.Baltimore hopes to turn things around this year, but if the Ravens are to break a run of three straight years without a playoff appearance Boomer Esiason Jersey White , it will likely be as a wild card.There are, by the way, two other teams in the division. Cincinnati and Cleveland deserve mention only because one will likely finish in third place and the other will occupy the cellar.In Cincinnati, coach Marvin Lewis got a two-year extension despite his NFL-record 0-7 mark in the playoffs. After two straight losing seasons, he’s getting a 16th chance to finally get it right.Cleveland is coming off an 0-16 embarrassment and can only hope to be respectable. Since the creation of the current AFC North in 2002, the Browns are the only team never to finish in first place.Some things to know about the AFC North:FOR WHOM THE BELL TOILS: Pittsburgh and its “Killer Bs” — Roethlisberger, Brown and Bell — have reached the playoffs four straight years. Yet all those trips to January have turned into just three postseason wins and no trips to the Super Bowl.While the rejuvenated Roethlisberger believes he can play until he nears 40, this may be his last legitimate shot to win a third championship. Bell is likely in his final year in black-and-gold after being unable to come to terms with the club on a new long-term deal.Bell is one of the most versatile backs in the league and not easily replaceable. He won’t lack for motivation. He believes he’s a unique talent and wants the paycheck to prove it.Pittsburgh’s best chance to return to the Super Bowl will rely heavily on having Bell at the top of his game and will certainly take the tradeoff of seeing Bell elsewhere in 2019 if it means hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February.FAREWELL TOUR: Ozzie Newsome is the only general manager the Ravens have ever had Carlos Dunlap Jersey White , running the show in Baltimore since the team arrived from Cleveland before the 1996 season.Newsome will be stepping aside after this season, to be replaced by current assistant GM Eric DeCosta, who in 2019 will finally get the job he wanted after spurning offers from several other clubs.The Ravens have won two Super Bowls under Newsome, who in his final season has assembled a team that appears better than last year’s model.Having provided quarterback Joe Flacco with a new receiving group, Newsome addressed Baltimore’s most glaring weakness in 2017.BENGALS ON THE LINE: Cincinnati’s offense finished last in the league in yards last season, the worst showing in franchise history. The focus of their offseason was overhauling the line, which failed to protect Andy Dalton or open holes in the running game.The Bengals fired line coach Paul Alexander, traded with Buffalo for left tackle Cordy Glenn Anthony Munoz Jersey , signed right tackle Bobby Hart and drafted center Billy Price in the first round from Ohio State. Despite all that, the right side of the line struggled against the Cowboys in the second preseason game, renewing concerns that problems remain.GOTTA BE BETTER, CAN’T GET WORSE: Cleveland coach Hue Jackson is 1-31 in two seasons with Cleveland, but Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam still believe they hired the right coach in 2016. Time will tell, but the pressure is on Jackson from the get-go to win or there could be more changes in a team that has known mostly upheaval for 20 years.The Browns drafted quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick, but the Heisman Trophy winner will begin the year as a backup to Tyrod Taylor, who helped Buffalo snap a 17-year postseason drought last season. It may have taken the Cincinnati Bengals a while to find a defensive coordinator for new head coach Zac Taylor Michael Johnson Jersey , but the rest of the coaching staff is now rounding into form.The team announced on Thursday the hiring of Nick Eason (defensive line), Tem Lukabu (linebackers), Brad Kragthorpe (offensive assistant), and Jordan Kovacs (defensive quality control) to their coaching staff with Todd Hunt and Garrett Swanson joining the team as assistant strength and conditioning coaches.All six coaches come to the Bengals from positions in college football, though Eason and Lukabu have prior NFL coaching experience.Eason spent 2018 at Austin Peay University and had accepted a job at Vanderbilt for 2019 before joining the Bengals. He previously spent four years with the Tennessee Titans as a defensive line coach from 2014-17.Lukabu was the linebackers coach at Mississippi State last season. He has previously served as a defensive quality control coach with the San Francisco 49ers (2016-17) and defensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2012-13).Kragthorpe was an offensive coaching analyst at LSU last season after spending the prior two seasons at Utah State.Kovacs was a graduate assistant under Jim Harbaugh at Michigan the last two seasons. He played three seasons for the Miami Dolphins at safety (2013-15).Hunt and Swanson come to the Bengals after being with the University of Illinois.

MIAMI GARDENS Michael Deiter Jersey Cheap , Fla. (AP) — The Detroit Lions clustered on the bench under shade canopies Sunday, keeping their cool in the South Florida heat. And when they stepped onto the field and into the subtropical sunshine, they ran all over the Miami Dolphins.Unfazed by the weather, Kerryon Johnson rushed for 158 yards and the Lions netted 248 on the ground, their highest total in 21 years, to win 32-21.Matt Stafford was 18 for 22 for 217 yards and two touchdowns. Detroit had 457 total yards and mounted scoring drives covering 64, 85, 75, 65, 75, 63 and 44 yards.“We’re playing a team, not the weather,” Stafford said. “Our guys up front dominated, and our backs were awesome. It was good to go out there and play at a high level against a good team.”The Lions (3-3) punted once and had no turnovers to win on the road for the first time. They’ve climbed back to .500 after being outscored 78-44 in their first two games.Injury-ravaged Miami (4-3) lost at home for the first time this season — and lost another key player when dynamic receiver Albert Wilson was sidelined in the first half. Wilson’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said his client suffered a hip injury that appeared significant.“I would say the best-case scenario is that he would miss a few weeks,” Rosenhaus said during his weekly appearance on South Florida’s WSVN-TV. “Worst-case scenario is he could possibly miss the rest of the season.”Receiver Kenny Stills also limped to the locker room with a minute left.The Lions, meanwhile Michael Deiter Jersey Womens , held up well in the 88-degree sunshine, even though it was 40 degrees warmer than in Detroit. That was in contrast to the Chicago Bears, who wilted at Miami in an overtime loss a week earlier.Johnson, an Alabama native, said the heat didn’t bother him at all.“This is the same stuff I’ve been doing since I was a little boy,” he said. “I’ve been up in Detroit freezing my tail off. To finally get to play in the sun and heat and humidity, I was loving it.”Johnson carried 19 times and needed barely a quarter to reach 100 yards. The rookie ran for 24 on Detroit’s first play and found a gaping hole on a draw for a 71-yard gain, the Lions’ longest running play since 2011, to set up a field goal.“Basically they could do whatever they wanted on that side of the ball,” Miami coach Adam Gase said.Detroit averaged 7.1 yards per rush. Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake, for one, was surprised how many yards rushing his team allowed.“A lot has to go wrong for that to happen,” he said.Detroit’s Michael Roberts, who had missed the past three games with a knee injury, caught touchdown passes of 15 and 4 yards.“We’re a very fine-tuned offense,” Roberts said, “and it was nice to be able to show how fine-tuned we are.”Brock Osweiler threw for 239 yards for the Dolphins, and after falling behind 20-7 Michael Deiter white jersey , they tried to rally with Kenyan Drake’s 54-yard touchdown run and Danny Amendola’s 24-yard scoring reception.But Prater’s 50-yard field goal — his fourth — with 1:55 left sealed the victory.INJURED BYSTANDERA security guard hurt her shoulder when Stills blindsided her on a scoring play . Stills’ momentum carried him into the guard after he caught a 5-yard pass in the corner of the end zone, and the woman tumbled to the ground.A dazed Stills checked on her and gave her the ball as a souvenir. The Dolphins said the guard was taken to the hospital as a precaution with a sore shoulder.Gase said he didn’t consider the positioning of the guard near the end zone something that needed to be addressed.“Every stadium is like that where that can happen,” the coach said.INJURY REPORTMiami: Wilson left the game in the second quarter after his foot appeared to buckle when he was tackled on a 25-yard reception. He limped to the locker room.“It definitely hurts us,” Osweiler said. “Albert is a tremendous player. He brings a spark. We definitely missed him.”ANTHEMStills and Wilson kneeled during the anthem, as they have done before previous games, and Miami defensive end Robert Quinn again raised his right fist.UP NEXTDolphins: Miami plays Thursday night at the Houston Texans, who lead the series 7-1.Lions: Detroit plays at home Sunday against Seattle. It’s their first meeting since the Seahawks beat the Lions in an NFC wild-card game two seasons ago. The Dolphins moved on from Ryan Tannehill and are looking for their next "franchise" quarterback.

Could a position battle in camp prove they already have him?EDTThe Miami Dolphins veterans open training camp on July 24, meaning we are exactly 24 days away from the start of camp and all of them team in Florida preparing for the regular season. Over the next 24 days, I will select one topic to discuss as a preview of camp. Today, we start with the most obvious camp storyline for the Dolphins - the quarterback position. Miami traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans this offseason, ending the era of the team’s 2012 first-round draft pick. The Dolphins are believed to be looking toward 2020 to select a “franchise” quarterback, but they could already have their answer on the roster. With Tannehill gone, the Dolphins added veteran journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick. A seventh-round pick in 2005, Fitzpatrick comes to Miami after playing for the St. Louis Rams, Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans Michael Deiter Miami Dolphins Jerseys , Houston Texans, New York Jets, and the last two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has thrown for 29,357 yards in his career on a 60.1-percent completion rate with 190 touchdowns and 148 interceptions for an 81.1 career passer rating. He was signed to be the bridge quarterback from Tannehill to whomever the Dolphins add in 2020.Except, they added a player this year who could be the future of the team. The Arizona Cardinals selected Kyler Murray with the first-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, a year after using the tenth-overall pick on Josh Rosen. The selection of Murray forced the Cardinals to look for a trade partner to take on Rosen, and the Dolphins were able to add the 22-year-old quarterback. During a bad rookie campaign - on a really bad Arizona team - Rosen threw for 2,278 yards in 14 games (13 starts) with a 55.2-percent completion rate with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions and a 66.7 passer rating.The best part of Rosen’s second season in the NFL may just be getting out of Arizona. The Dolphins are not projected to be a good team in 2019, with several media and oddmaker types placing Miami as the favorite for the first-overall pick in 2020, but the Dolphins may not be as bad as people expect - and that may come from the position battle featuring Fitzpatrick and Rosen. Fitzpatrick is the solid veteran who can keep the team moving forward even if they struggle. He is the player who can put up the “Fitzmagic” three touchdown pass game - four times in 2018. He is also the player who can put up the “Fitztragic” three interception game - twice in 2018. He is going to find a way to win some games the Dolphins should lose, but lose same games the Dolphins should win. Rosen is the question mark, looking to prove his rookie season was one bad year, but he is a good quarterback. He was seen as the most pro-ready passer in the 2018 draft and now he has to prove it. He was behind Fitzpatrick during the Dolphins’ offseason training program Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and minicamps, but he was also playing catchup on the playbook, while Fitzpatrick has more experience in learning a new set of terminology and schemes over 15 years in the league. The real tests will come in training camp and the preseason. The Dolphins are going to need to see Rosen play so they can get an idea of if they need to draft a quarterback in 2020, or if they managed to land their franchise quarterback via a trade in the second round of the 2019 Draft. Can Rosen surpass Fitzpatrick in camp?Miami’s future could depend on the answer to that question.

The Los Angeles Rams are in the NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints. Overcoming the fire hot and trendy upset pick of the Dallas Cowboys with a dominant rushing effort Todd Gurley II Jersey , the Rams have won their first playoff game since the 2004 season.Coming into the game, many “experts” were expecting an easy game for the Cowboys rushing attack led by RB Ezekiel Elliott while leaning on the strong front seven to try and pull off the upset. Let’s just say the Cowboys were in for a rude surprise.QB Dak PrescottIf any player impressed on the Cowboys offense, it was QB Dak Prescott. Prescott finished the game with 266 yards passing (20/32) with a touchdown while also rushing for another. Prescott had a QB rating of 83.6, indicating that he had a strong game. In the end, it still wasn’t enough as the Rams defense did enough.Perhaps the most controversial play of the game, the Rams benefited from a “sack” as Dak was ruled to be “in the grasp”. CB Chidobe AwuzieThe younger cornerback for the Cowboys was busy with six tackles and a pass defended. Coming into the game, many thought the Rams might try to exploit Awuzie instead of trying to run against the front seven led by Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. Considering the Rams dominant effort on the run, Awuzie’s impact was minimized a bit.RB Ezekiel ElliottEveryone was banking on Ezekiel Elliott to have a big game against the Rams suspect defense. Instead, the Rams defense buckled down and limited Elliott to 47 yards rushing.From the beginning of the game, it felt like the Rams were really going to key on Elliott and make him earn every yard. Zeke managed to get in the endzone eventually while also adding 19 yards receiving on two catches (five targets).LB Leighton Vander EschAfter coming into the game with all the hype in the world, the rookie was actually taken out of the game multiple times. In the end Aaron Donald Jersey , Vander Esch only finished with four total tackles and was constantly subbed in and out for veteran Sean Lee (who finished with seven total tackles). Many people were wondering why Lee, who hadn’t played much the previous week, was getting most of the reps in crunch time. Ultimately, the linebacker group as a whole was a disappointment for Dallas as the Rams ran roughshod with 273 yards rushing and three touchdowns for the game.WR Amari CooperCooper made his impact early and often against the Rams. After the Rams had taken the opening offensive drive for points with a field goal, the Cowboys leaned on the Prescott to Cooper connection to score the game’s first touchdown.Cooper would be targeted nine times to catch six passes for 65 yards (and the above touchdown). He and Michael Gallup were both the main targets in the passing game as Gallup actually ended up with significantly more yards (119). Overall, with a playoff victory for the franchise, it’s hard to argue about the draft capital used to acquire Cooper in Dallas. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hoped to return from the bye week without the brace that has protected his left knee since the second half of the opening game.Instead, Rodgers was the only player not on the field on Tuesday for the team's first practice of the week.While his teammates began preparing for Sunday's matchup at the undefeated Los Angeles Rams, Rodgers continued to rehab the injury. That's how he's started every practice week since sustaining the injury during the second quarter against Chicago on Sept. 9."It's too early to tell," Rodgers said of playing without the brace. "I'd love to, but it's too early to tell at this point."Rodgers has played well Darrell Henderson Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , despite the injury and reduced practice time. He enters this week's games ranked 10th in the NFL with a passer rating of 100.1. His 6.5 yards per carry is better than his career-high mark of 6.3 in 2014.Still, he would like to be fully healthy as the Packers start a critical stretch to the season."If I'm completely healed, I don't need to wear a brace. Feel more comfortable without it, obviously," Rodgers said. "Having dealt with a knee injury for much of my football life, obviously you're more protected. You see some guys who do wear it all the time without having issues, but I just feel more comfortable without having it on. So, if it's not on, that means I'm feeling great and, if it is, that means I'm not quite all the way back."Rodgers said he did not have another MRI during the bye to determine how much the knee has healed. Regardless Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , the break came at a good time for the team and for Rodgers, who has been dealing with other minor injuries. He's been sacked 19 times."It was a great week, nice and relaxing with everything we're dealing with," he said. "The knee is an issue but we have other bumps and bruises that aren't on the injury report because they're not significant enough. It helps, the week, healing those things up."The Packers will need Rodgers at his best as he takes on the Rams. With Los Angeles ranking third in the NFL with 33.6 points per game, Rodgers knows he might have to win a shootout.Doing so, however, will be difficult against a defense that ranks fourth with 18.3 points allowed per game. Behind Aaron Donald's four sacks, the Rams had seven sacks in a rout of the 49ers last week."You have that chip on your shoulder," receiver Davante Adams said. "Obviously Darrell Henderson Jersey Cheap , we understand why we would be underdogs based on the record and the play style and the way they've been playing."They've been playing some great ball in all three phases, really. So, I saw something where this is like the biggest underdog he's ever been point-wise. So, that kind of stuff fires guys like No. 12 up and I know it fires me up."The challenge won't get any easier in succeeding weeks. Next, it's a trip to New England to face the Patriots. After a home game against Miami, it's back-to-back road games at Seattle and Minnesota. Those five teams are a combined 23-10-1.For Green Bay (3-2-1), this could be a make-or-break stretch to its season."We're going to have to play a lot better than we have to win those games," Rodgers said. "This is an important stretch in our season. I'm not going to say it's going to define our season, but it's definitely going to shake things out when we get on the other side of this and get back home in six weeks on where we're at in the race and what we're playing for."

Forget Carrie Underwood. Well Sony Michel Jerseys 2019 , don’t forget her, she’s terrific.But the NFL’s theme song these days belongs to Maren Morris, Zedd and Grey. You know, “Meet Me In The Middle.”That’s where a bevy of NFL teams sat through Week 14 — all with shots, both reasonable and long, at making the playoffs.Take a deep breath and consider:—Seattle and Dallas at 8-5.—Pittsburgh at 7-5-1.—Indianapolis, Baltimore, Tennessee and Miami at 7-6.—Minnesota at 6-6-1.—Philadelphia, Carolina, Denver and Washington at 6-7.—Green Bay and Cleveland at 5-7-1.And, yes, Tampa Bay, Detroit, Cincinnati and the New York Giants at 5-8.All are alive for the postseason.Even Atlanta, at 4-9, if you can imagine Byron Cowart Jersey Boys , isn’t eliminated.Just what the league loves heading toward Christmas: charity for nearly all.So let first-year Titans coach Mike Vrabel play the Grinch, trying to ignore any playoff chatter as his team heads to the Meadowlands to face the Giants.“We haven’t talked much. We try to eliminate all the scenarios,” he says. “The only scenario that we try to focus on is our preparation right now as we head into a road game against the Giants.“You could talk about scenarios all day. There’s scenarios where the Dolphins give up two punt blocks and score on a 70-yard hook-and-ladder; a scenario where a player jumps offside on a third-and-1 in a four-minute situation; a situation where a team executes a 50-yard hook-and-ladder and then the kicker slips. Those are all the scenarios that are crazy that happen in this league every week, so the one we’re going to try to focus on is our preparation versus the Giants.”Fair enough, because all of the playoff-qualifying scenarios for this week are enough to spark a migraine.The questions that should be raised are:—Is all of this competitive balance or simply mediocrity? Oasis or swamp?—Is it good for the NFL that such spiraling messes as the Falcons and Bengals remain in the running?—Do people really want to see a .500 (or worse) team playing in January, perhaps against a 14-2 opponent?LEVEL OF PERFORMANCENearly all the teams in the middle of the standings belong there. It’s fair to point out that the Redskins, Bengals and Falcons have been severely damaged by injuries — hey, Cincinnati was once 4-1 and Washington held the top spot in the NFC East until its current four-game slide.Still, there’s a flawed bunch of “contenders” for the playoffs. They are profiting because they are keeping company with equally blemished clubs.All of them have had impressive stretches and pretty much unwatchable ones, though Seattle and Dallas probably don’t deserve to be lumped with the stragglers because they seem to be legitimate threats to do something in January.What’s missing with the others is the consistency that the top teams possess. Look at the Colts, who went from 1-1 to 1-5, then won five in a row, only to get blanked at lowly Jacksonville before going to Houston, the league’s hottest team, and winning.FORGET THEMDo fans in Atlanta and Cincinnati and Washington envision any sort of turnaround in the final three games that would lift those teams into the postseason? Do those clubs’ front offices?They shouldn’t, even as the NFL boasts that 26 teams still have a shot at the Super Bowl.One likely good thing about such deficient teams being in the running in mid-December is that it should cool talk of expanding the playoff field — something that virtually would guarantee impostors getting in.MISMATCHESOnce in a while White Duke Dawson Jerseys , a team scrapes into the postseason and catches fire. Wild-carders have won the Super Bowl often enough to keep that dream alive once you get in.But should, say, a 7-8-1 Packers or 8-8 Lions sneak in, does that make for must-watch TV in the playoffs? Is a game with 8-8 Miami at 12-4 Houston enticing?SEEDINGSWhat is nice about the chase in December is the intrigue of seedings. The general feeling in the AFC is that avoiding a trip to Foxborough in January is necessary. So, the other division winners not only want and likely need to win their games, they’re hoping the Patriots, currently seeded second, don’t win out. Kansas City tops the conference right now, but barely.The NFC is a two-team race for the top spot between the Saints and Rams, who met in a high-scoring affair won by host New Orleans in early November. Both are 11-2, making their final three weeks critical in that race.And then they have the prospect of sitting out wild-card weekend while a team or two emerging from the quagmire stokes up its fan base before probably getting routed. Typically, NFL teams do not invest draft picks in long snappers. The New England Patriots, however, are not your typical NFL team, which is why seeing them select the Naval Academy’s Joe Cardona in the fifth round of the 2015 draft did not come as a surprise. Cardona has since become a core member of the team’s kicking game operation, earned a four-year contract extension in 2018 Duke Dawson Jerseys 2019 , and has won two Super Bowls.Cardona’s loyalties are not limited to the Patriots, though, as he also continues toserves in the U.S. Navy. Not only was he promoted to Lieutenant earlier this offseason, he has also led numerous military support initiatives over the course of his four-year career in the NFL: Cardona has hosted over a dozen special re-enlistment and retirement ceremonies, and free football clinics for military children at military bases all over New England.In 2018, Cardona was furthermore named as the organization’s Ron Burton Community Service Award winner for his exemplary work off the field. Given his commitment to pro football, the Navy and numerous charitable causes, it is only logical to see the Patriots make the 27-year old their nominee for the 2019 Salute to Service Award presented by USAA — the fourth straight year that the team has picked him as a nominee.The award, which is handed out annually since 2011, honors NFL members, who demonstrate “exemplary commitment to honoring and supporting the military community”. Finalists will be announced in January, while the actual award will be given out as part of the NFL Honors ceremony on February 1.

The Oakland Raiders announced Tuesday night they have signed first-round running back Josh Jacobs to his rookie contract.The signing of Jacobs completes the Raiders’ draft class.Per Michael Gehlken of the https://www.raiderslockerroom.com/authentic-derek-carr-jersey , Jacobs deal is a four-year deal with a fifth-year option worth $11.9 million.Jacobs was the second of Oakland’s three first-round draft picks this spring along with defensive end Clelin Ferrell and safety Johnathan Abram. Jacobs was the 24th overall pick of the first round. The two sides got a contract done with just two weeks remaining until the Raiders rookies report for training camp on July 23.Jacobs’ signing brings the list of unsigned draft picks league wide down to just 11: Nick Bosa (No. 2, 49ers), Quinnen Williams (No. 3, Jets), Devin White (No. 4, Buccaneers), Daniel Jones (No. 6, Giants), Brian Burns (No. 16, Panthers) Derek Carr Jersey White , Deebo Samuel (No. 36, 49ers), Dalton Risner (No. 41, Broncos), Drew Lock (No. 42, Broncos), Myles Boykin (No. 93, Ravens), Oshane Ximines (No. 95, Giants) and Austin Cutting (No. 250 Womens Bo Jackson Jersey , Vikings).

The Chiefs took care of business Bo Jackson Jersey , and Patrick Mahomes might have taken care of a certain award.The second-year quarterback led his team to an easy 35-3 win over the Raiders, moving them to 12-4 and securing home-field advantage through the AFC playoffs.He finished the day wearing a cap on the sidelines, as Chad Henne finished up the fourth quarter after he threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns.That gave him 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns for the season, and put him in rare company.He’s the second quarterback in league history to throw for more than 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in a season, joining some guy named Peyton Manning who did it in 2013.While the season Drew Brees completed for the Saints last week was impressive (breaking his own league record for completion percentage in a season, 74.4), the sheer volume of numbers for Mahomes could be enough to sway MVP voters.Regardless, the Chiefs now have an extra week to get guys healthy (such as Eric Berry, who was inactive this week) https://www.raiderslockerroom.com/authen...antonio-brown-jersey , and the luxury of playing all their games at home.For the Raiders (4-12), there were few highlights other than the fact this year’s over, they’ll pick fourth in the 2019 NFL Draft, and they can concentrate on finding another place to play.

Late last season they showed some loyalty to him by signing him to his $1.1 million 2019 roster bonus early. Only to cut him just over four months later.They did the same thing with Jordy Nelson after the additions of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams back in March.Mike Mayock has said that the selection of Moreau was for more than his blocking abilities, though blocking will initially be his primary duties. The team also signed free agent Luke Willson last month, and the team clearly sees he and Moreau as the frontrunners for the blocking tight end job, making the 31-year-old Smith the odd man out.Lee Smith finishes his Raiders career with 36 catches for 248 yards and 4 touchdowns in 51 appearances.Follow @LeviDamien

The new blindside block rule is telling replay review of pass interference to hold its beer.With multiple questionable http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic...ne-washington-jersey , at best, applications of the new procedure for reviewing pass interference calls and non-calls during the 2019 preseason, the new, sweeping banishment of all blindside blocks is creating some confusion.It happened on Saturday, in the Lions-Texans game. Lions guard Oday Aboushi, while blocking for quarterback David Fales Womens Tracy Walker Jersey , noticed that Texans linebacker Jamal Davis had looped completely around right tackle David Wiggins, allowing Davis to chase Fales from behind. So Aboushi turned and blocked Davis with Aboushi’s shoulder.It wasn’t a blindside block in the way the term would be commonly interpreted, because Davis saw it coming. However, it was a blindside block in the way that the NFL defines it. Earlier this year, the league made it a violation of the rules “if a player initiates a block when he is moving toward or parallel to his own end line and makes contact to his opponent with his helmet, forearm or shoulder.”The rule doesn’t carve out situations where the opponent sees the hit coming. Instead Womens Da'Shawn Hand Jersey , it prohibits a blocker from blocking with his helmet, forearm, or shoulder while moving in any direction other than toward the opponent’s end line.And that’s essentially the explanation that NFL senior V.P. of officiating Al Riveron supplied when placing on Twitter a clip of the Aboushi hit, which drew a flag for a blindside block.So what should a player do when a defender is chasing an offensive player toward the defender’s end line? Apparently, the sole options for the offensive player are to use his open palms to make the block or to set a basketball-style screen and basically absorb the football equivalent of a charge, with no penalty whatsoever imposed on the defender for wiping out the offensive player who is just standing there. The Lions didn’t play error-free football in their wins over the Chargers and Eagles the last two weeks Graham Glasgow Jersey White , but they were able to avoid enough mistakes to win by three points in each game.One group has been particularly good at avoiding mistakes the last two weeks. The Lions haven’t given up a sack in either of their wins, which marks the first time since 2011 that a Lions team has gone sack-free for two straight weeks.Center Frank Ragnow said quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receivers getting open quickly have helped keep the streak going, but he knows it ultimately becomes a feather in the offensive line’s collective cap.“That’s a big thing for the offensive line,” Ragnow said, via the . “You don’t get much stats as an O-linemen, so the no sacks is definitely a big thing. And that’s one thing that I’d say we’re definitely proud of. We don’t want him touched at all. There’s always room to improve there.”The Lions have never had three straight sack-free games in a season since sacks became an official statistic in 1982. The Chiefs http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-tracy-walker-jersey , who have seven sacks through three games, will try to keep them from making history.

CINCINNATI (AP) — One of the few bright spots in Cincinnati’s offense was Joe Mixon leading the AFC in rushing last season. The Bengals put the run game front-and-center with their first two picks in the NFL draft.A day after taking left tackle Jonah Williams with the 11th overall pick Joe Mixon Jersey White , the Bengals traded down Friday and got Drew Sample from Washington — a tight end known for his blocking — in the second round.They filled their biggest need in the third round, getting linebacker Germaine Pratt from N.C. State.For the third straight year , they traded down in the second round, dropping 10 spots so Denver could move up and take quarterback Drew Lock, knowing Sample would still be available .The 6-foot-5, 251-pound tight end was a key blocker in the Huskies’ ground-based offense, which he figured could lead to him slipping to a later round. Sample caught only 46 passes with five touchdowns during four years at Washington.“I definitely took pride in being able to be a focal point in that regard Womens Darqueze Dennard Jersey ,” Sample said on a conference call. “I took pride in opening holes for Myles (Gaskin) and our other running backs. That’s what I was able to do at Washington.”Cincinnati’s offense finished 26th overall last season, a year after finishing last. The passing game finished 24th in the league, with receiver A.J. Green missing seven games with a toe injury and quarterback Andy Dalton missing five with a thumb injury.Their best player on offense was Mixon, who ran for 1,168 yards with eight touchdowns. The Bengals had the running game in mind when they picked Williams and Sample.“We want to be a dominant run offense,” offensive coordinator Brian Callahan said. “These guys help us do that. They improve that ability.”The Bengals were looking to add a tight end at some point in the draft. They’ve brought back Tyler Eifert on another one-year deal after yet another injury-shortened season, this time with a broken ankle. Eifert has played only 14 games in the last three seasons because of back and ankle injuries.C.J. Uzomah had 43 catches for 439 yards with three touchdowns last season and got a three-year extension.The Bengals also were looking to get a linebacker — their most glaring need with Vontaze Burfict gone — in an early round. Pratt played safety his first two seasons at N.C. State and switched to linebacker his junior year. He started as a senior and finished as the ACC’s top-rated linebacker with 104 tackles and six sacks.The Bengals missed out on a chance to take either LSU’s Devin White or Michigan’s Devin Bush Womens Cordy Glenn Jersey , the top two linebackers available in the opening round. White went to Tampa Bay with the No. 5 pick, and the Steelers swooped in and trade up to No. 10 — one pick ahead of the Bengals — to get Bush.The Bengals filled their biggest need as the second day of the draft wound down.“Doing better now,” first-year defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo said. “We’re thrilled to get Germaine. We were coveting him early in the day and tracking him as the draft goes on.”The 6-foot-3, 240-pound linebacker is known for his ability to cover tight ends and receivers in the passing game, a reflection of his two seasons as a safety. Pratt played more like a linebacker at times in his first two seasons at N.C. State.“I always knew for me to be successful, I had to switch positions because I wasn’t going to be a safety,” he said.Pratt will get a chance to start http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/auth...lik-jefferson-jersey , given the Bengals’ needs at linebacker. Anarumo thinks he could play middle linebacker or outside because of his versatility.“Like with every rookie, we want to see what they do well early so they don’t lose confidence,” he said. The Dolphins have brought former Bengals running back Mark Walton to town for a tryout at rookie minicamp. So why are the Dolphins providing an opportunity to a player who faces pending criminal charges?“I think people deserve a second chance,” coach Brian Flores said Saturday, via Joe Schad of the . “I believe that. I think that’s the case. I don’t want to judge people based on one incident. Two incidents. [: Three incidents.] I think it’s a case-by-case situation for a player and for people in general. That’s kind of my stance.”Of course, it’s not like the Dolphins have given Walton a job.“He’s here on a tryout,” Flores said. “Obviously Carlos Dunlap Jersey , talented player. But we want to take a look at him and see if he was a fit for us, on the field and off the field. I think he’s done a good job, really in the one day that he’s been here. So we’ll see how it goes.”Flores said that the organization “discussed” Walton’s pending legal issues.“[A]gain, it’s a tryout,” Flores said. “And just that’s kind of part of the process. Getting to know him. And getting to see him on and off the field.”That’s fair, but here’s the point to remember when it comes to second chances for NFL players. With a fixed number of jobs, every player who gets a second chance necessarily takes away someone else’s spot — quite possibly Womens Bobby Hart Jersey , someone who never did anything that would require a second chance.But talent continues to fuel NFL second chances. If a guy is good (and Walton was good enough to be a fourth-round pick in 2018), he gets a second chance. If a guy isn’t good, no second chance.So that’s the key addition to Flores’ stance. “I think people deserve a second chance . . . if they’re talented enough to deserve that second chance.”

Matt Ryan would have loved the new pass interference rule in 2012. The Falcons still believe 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman interfered with receiver Roddy White on a fourth-down play from the San Francisco 10-yard line with 1:09 remaining.The 49ers held on for a 28-24 victory in the NFC Championship Game John Franklin-Myers Jersey , advancing to the Super Bowl where they lost to the Ravens. Under the new pass interference review rule going into effect this season, a replay official could have called for a review of the play.“Geez, yes it would have [helped us],” Ryan told D. Orlando Ledbetter of the on Thursday. “It would have definitely helped us. It would have helped us, but the same can be said for a lot of teams throughout the course of history.”The Falcons still would have needed a touchdown, but they would have had four more downs if the league office had ruled pass interference on Bowman. The Saints can relate after Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman got away with interference against Tommylee Lewis late in regulation of last season’s NFC title game.“I understand Brian Allen Jersey ,” Ryan said. “I feel the pain.”There is concern over the application of the rule, which became official Thursday. The NFL points out that officials will have a higher standard for initiating automatic review for pass interference calls and non-calls than for other reviewable plays in hopes of avoiding excessive stoppages.The preseason will serve as the test kitchen for the new rule.“They’ll get it right,” Ryan said. “They’ll get it right at some point. That’s the biggest thing that I’ve seen with all of this stuff is their intent is to try and get it right. As a player you can respect and appreciate that.” Chris Long retired Saturday night, signing off on a brilliant 11-year career (on and off the field) with a red cup and a sunset.But as you’d expect with a player so thoughtful, it was far from an easy decision.The former Rams, Patriots Joseph Noteboom Jersey , and Eagles defensive end told Peter King of NBC’s that the decision was “complicated.”“I learned to never make a decision based on just one thing,” Long said. “The decision to retire was complicated. It was based on health, which is still very good, and family, we have two small children, and football fit Jack Youngblood Jersey , which includes a chance to win and my role and geography.“Philadelphia is where I wanted to play a couple more years. I love Philadelphia. But as a player I learned the most important thing to me is Sunday, and having a chance to be a big part of it. It seemed like player-coach was kind of the role that was going to be carved out for me—maybe playing 10, 12, 15 plays a game. I’m a rhythm player. I need to set people up, I need to be in the flow of the game. If I sit on the bench for three series, I can’t get rhythm Torry Holt Jersey , and I’ll get cold and maybe I’ll hurt myself. Some people think that’s great—play less and you won’t get hurt. Man, I want to play ball. In Philadelphia, it didn’t seem there was much of a chance to compete there.“But they were honest with me the whole time. I appreciate the honesty. I’ll always love Philadelphia and the Eagles, but I didn’t want Week Four, Five, to come around and people think Orlando Pace Jersey , Whoa, where’s Chris? Did Chris retire? I’d rather do it this way than just fade out. And I didn’t want to start over again across the country somewhere.”Long could have easily found another place to play, and another place that would have given him the expanded role he wanted. Instead, he chose to walk away, into what is doubtless going to be a retirement as productive as his football career was.

The NFL’s effort to prevent a repeat of the Rams-Saints uncalled pass interference fiasco has resulted in a long journey for Milan to Minsk that Womens Rashad Fenton Jersey , at last check, seemed encouraging.To summarize, automatic replay review will be initiated for pass interference only when the replay official spots, while looking at the play in real time or while screening full-speed reviews, clear and obvious calls or non-calls of offensive or defensive pass interference. It sounds good in theory. In practice, there’s still a chance it will become a mess.And evidence has now emerged as to how it can become a mess.Via the , Mike Giardi of NFL Media has shared via Twitter a key play from the Week 15 Chargers-Chiefs Thursday night thriller that NFL senior V.P. of officiating Al Riveron cited at an NFL Media Summit as an example of the application of the new rule allowing pass interference calls and non-calls to be reviewed.Officials on the field ruled with less than 10 seconds on the clock that Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller had interfered with Chargers receiver Mike Williams, giving the Chargers the ball at the Chiefs’ one yard line, automatic first and goal. Riveron, according to Giardi, explained that automatic replay review would have resulted in a finding that Fuller had committed defensive pass interference that Williams had committed offensive pass interference, resulting in offsetting penalties and a do-over of the third and goal play from the Kansas City 10, with only eight seconds left in a game where the Chargers trailed by seven points.So here’s the real question. Would the replay official have concluded based on the real-time play and full-speed replay review that the officials clearly and obviously missed Williams shoving Fuller away, as Fuller was interfering with Williams?Maybe the replay official would have seen it Authentic Rashad Fenton Jersey , maybe the replay official wouldn’t have seen it. The replay official and the replay assistant will have to make those decisions quickly, and the video doesn’t reveal the same kind of undeniable blunder that was committed when officials in the NFC title game failed to see Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman blast Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis before the ball arrived.There’s a fine line between what is and isn’t clear and obvious, and 17 different replay officials may have 17 different standards for deciding in a compressed time frame when to initiate automatic review based on the full-speed-only replays that will be available to the replay officials. In a Rams-Saints situation, 17 out of 17 replay officials will (or at least should) activate Riveron’s remote review of the play from league headquarters in New York. But, in the Chiefs-Chargers case, would 17 of 17 find sufficiently clear and obvious evidence of offensive pass interference to engage a formal review?Possibly. Possibly not. The problem is that there will be some situations where a replay official hits the proverbial button based on the full-speed replay, and some situations where the replay official decides not to bog down the final moments of a game with a formal review by Riveron.Think of what the replay official will be processing in situations where “clear and obvious” may not be as “clear and obvious” as it was when Robey-Coleman struck Lewis prematurely. In the Fuller-Williams scenario, the replay official will be looking at whether the ruling of defensive pass interference was clearly and obviously wrong while also looking at whether the failure to call offensive pass interference was clearly and obviously wrong. When in doubt, will the replay official call for a full review? Or, when in doubt, will the replay official conclude that the presence of said doubt means that the evidence of an error necessarily isn’t clear and obvious?The fact that Riveron is openly sharing the Chargers-Chiefs play as a matter-of-fact example of a call of defensive pass interference becoming a replay-reversed ruling of offsetting fouls suggests that, frankly, he possibly doesn’t appreciate this nuance. If that’s the case, the end result could be that too many late-game passing plays will end up being scrutinized by Riveron for clear and obvious errors Travis Kelce Jersey , causing games to be slowed down for careful analysis of something far less clear and obvious than what happened in New Orleans.Thus, although the ostensible end result of a multi-month sausage grinding makes sense on the surface, Riveron’s review of this play from the Chiefs-Chargers contest suggests that, despite the safeguard that the Competition Committee has crafted to prevent excessive late-game replay reviews, there could still be too many of them — because the replay official may be expected to call for a full review under circumstances where the evidence isn’t nearly as clear and obvious as it was when Robey-Coleman clearly and obviously flattened Lewis before the ball had arrived.With the days winding down until the start of the regular season, the Competition Committee, Riveron, the Commissioner, and the owners need to be sure that everyone is on the same page regarding what this new procedure means and, more importantly, how it will be consistently and reliably applied in order to balance a desire to keep games moving while also ironing out clear and obvious mistakes. The NFL’s in-house justice system is deeply flawed, for a variety of reasons. One of the most important reasons is this: It often has no power to get the evidence needed to properly investigate incidents involving players.While the league can compel players and league/team employees to cooperate, the league has no authority to issue subpoeanas for testimony or documents to people disconnected to the NFL.As explained by A.J. Perez of , those inherent limits on the NFL’s investigative abilities prevented the league from conducting a complete investigation regarding child-abuse allegations made against Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill. Perez reports that prosecutors in Kansas relied on an exception to the state’s open-records law to deny the league’s request for information relating to the case that explored whether and to what extent Hill’s son was the victim of child abuse.On April 24 Tyreek Hill Jersey , Johnson County, Kansas prosecutor Steve Howe said at a press conference that he believes a crime was committed against Hill’s son, but that insufficient proof existed as to the identity of the perpetrator.The league made the request for information that same day. The next day, Howe responded, citing the exception to decline to provide any information to the NFL.This means that Hill hasn’t been exonerated by the league. Instead, the NFL was unable to find a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy because it can’t get the information from the agency that is entitled to keep it secret, given that it has decided that it lacks proof beyond a reasonble doubt to prove Hill’s guilt.It’s still unclear why Howe didn’t simply choose to charge both parents — Hill and Crystal Espinal — presenting the evidence and letting a jury decide whether either or both were responsible for the crime that Howe believes was committed. Even if both were acquitted, the league would then have access to the evidence, if any, against Hill. Given that the NFL applies a much lower standard to matters of guilt or innocence, the evidence that would be introduced at a trial of Hill and/or Espinal could have been enough to justify discipline.

RG3 is staying put while AJ is switching coasts.Robert Griffin III Stephen Gostkowski Jerseys Stitched , the 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year whose career has been disrupted by injuries since that season, remained with Baltimore as the Ravens cut their roster to the league maximum of 53 on Saturday. He’ll likely be the third-string quarterback behind Joe Flacco and first-round draft pick Lamar Jackson, but he still has a job.AJ McCarron, who signed with Buffalo as a free agent after four years as a backup QB in Cincinnati, was traded by the Bills to Oakland.The Raiders closed a deal with Chicago to send star pass rusher Khalil Mack to the Bears for a slew of draft picks, including two first-rounders.Among the intriguing players let go were Dallas kicker Dan Bailey, Chiefs cornerback David Amerson, Ravens receiver Breshad Perriman, Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson, Texans receiver Braxton Miller and guard Davis Quessenberry, and Steelers quarterback Landry Jones.QUARTERBACKSGriffin signed a one-year deal with the Ravens in April after sitting out the entire 2017 season. He was Washington’s first-round choice in 2012, second overall, and led the Redskins to the playoffs that year before things went sour.“There’s no doubt that you want Robert Griffin on your team,” coach John Harbaugh said after the final preseason game. “He makes our quarterback room better and stronger. He’s a very good quarterback. He looks like a starter to me. He has been a starter. Certainly a backup in this league http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-jeremy-hill-jersey , without question. I mean, that’s not even close. I would like to have him on the team, we’ll just have to see how the math works.”It worked.Another survivor thus far: Paxton Lynch in Denver.The 2016 first-rounder got through cutdown day despite slipping to third on the depth chart this summer. Chad Kelly leapfrogged Lynch last month and became the second seventh-rounder to beat out the former Memphis star. Trevor Siemian also managed it, but is now with Minnesota.In Pittsburgh, Josh Dobbs’ impressive preseason cost Jones his job. The Steelers kept Dobbs and rookie Mason Rudolph as the primary backups to Ben Roethlisberger.Dobbs made significant strides in his second training camp and ended the preseason by throwing for a touchdown and running for another in a victory over Carolina. Jones had been 3-2 as a starter in five pro seasons, with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.Cincinnati put vet Matt Barkley (knee) on injured reserve, leaving Jeff Driskel as the backup to Andy Dalton heading into the season.BUSY GRUDENThe Raiders waived Martavis Bryant just over four months after trading a third-round pick to Pittsburgh for the receiver.The decision to cut Bryant came on a busy day for returning coach Jon Gruden, who dealt holdout pass rusher Mack to the Bears.Oakland got nothing out of the third-round draft pick sent to the Steelers for Bryant, who dealt with injuries in training camp and has had several off-field issues in his career.McCarron came from Buffalo for a 2019 fifth-round pick. He was both injured and inconsistent for the Bills in preseason and fell behind first-rounder Josh Allen and Nathan Peterman.Among the other notable players cut by Gruden were 2015 second-round defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr. and 2016 fourth-round quarterback Connor Cook. Edwards’ release means the Raiders now have none of their second-round picks from 2015-17 on the current roster.FAILED DRAFT PICKSThe Ravens parted with Perriman, the team’s first-round pick in 2015. He managed just 43 catches for 576 yards and three touchdowns over 27 career games. It marked the first time in franchise history the Ravens cut a first-round pick before the end of his rookie contract.The Bills chose not to hold onto receiver Corey Coleman, who has been a disappointment since the Browns made him the 15th overall selection two years ago. Buffalo traded a seventh-round pick in 2020 for him.RELEASED VETERANSBrian Robison and Terence Newman were released by Minnesota.Robison was about to begin his 12th season with the team. Newman, the oldest defensive player in the NFL, will retire and immediately join the coaching staff — three days before his 40th birthday.Robison, who’s tied for ninth in Vikings history with 60 career sacks Youth Matthew Slater Jerseys , was the longest-tenured player on the team. Drafted in the fourth round in 2007, he spent six of his 11 years with the Vikings as a full-time starter. Danielle Hunter moved ahead of him on the depth chart in 2017, and for the second straight offseason Robison took a pay cut to return in 2018.The Bengals released Johnson, a 10th-year defensive end, although it could be a temporary separation. Johnson becomes a free agent and could re-sign with Cincinnati for less money.Johnson has played all but one of his nine seasons with Cincinnati. He led the defensive line with 49 tackles and five sacks last season.The Chiefs released underperforming cornerback Amerson, who signed a $2.25 million free-agent deal this past offseason. Amerson was released by the Raiders before signing with Kansas City, where he was expected to solidify the secondary after the trade of Marcus Peters to the Rams. But he was often burned in preseason games.Running backs Mike Gillislee and Brandon Bolden were sent packing by New England. Gillislee, signed as a restricted free agent before last season, ran for 383 yards and five touchdowns in nine games.He and Bolden became expendable with the signing of free agent Jeremy Hill.Bolden, who has been with the team since 2012, was also released on cutdown day last season but then quickly brought back and played in all 16 games — at running back and on special teams.THE KICKERDallas waived Bailey, the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history. Bailey was Dallas’ kicker for seven seasons and made at least 93 percent of his kicks in three of his first five years. He tailed off badly last season after injuring his groin against San Francisco in the sixth game.By waiving Bailey, the Cowboys are going with Brett Maher. The sixth-year player from Nebraska hasn’t kicked in a regular-season game. He made a 57-yarder in the Cowboys’ 14-6 loss to Houston in the preseason finale.Bailey is at 88.2 percent on field goals for his career (186 of 211), second to Justin Tucker’s 90.2 percent. Bailey is Dallas’ career leader in field goals.LEAVING HOUSTONMiller Matthew Slater Jerseys Stitched , a third-round pick in 2016, who was twice selected Big Ten offensive player of the year as a quarterback at Ohio State before transitioning to receiver after an injury, couldn’t make the Texans. He saw limited action in two seasons with 34 receptions for 261 yards and two touchdowns in 21 games.Also released was guard David Quessenberry, a 2013 draft pick who spent years fighting cancer before overcoming the disease to make his NFL debut last season. He spent most of last season on the practice squad before being elevated to the active roster and playing in Houston’s last two games in 2017. Could another New England-San Francisco trade be on the horizon?"On day two of last year’s draft, the New England Patriots made a trade with the San Francisco 49ers: the club sent a third-round pick to the 49ers to acquire offensive tackle Trent Brown as well as a fifth-round selection that would later turn into linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley. The trade was a massive one for the Patriots as Brown became their starting left tackle while Bentley showed plenty of promise before a season-ending injury.One year after the move, the Patriots should again have interest in one of the 49ers’ players: according to a report by Pro Football Talk, San Francisco is shopping defensive edge Solomon Thomas just two years after drafting him third overall. While the 23-year-old appeared in 30 games for the club over the last two seasons, he failed to improve from year one to year two and live up to the expectations of being a high first-round draft pick.With Nick Bosa potentially available with the second overall pick, the 49ers are reportedly ready to move on from Thomas and New England should give old friend John Lynch, San Francisco’s general manager, a call. After all, Thomas is a tremendous but at times miscast talent, that could benefit greatly from a change of scenery. The Patriots would represent one and in turn likely find a role for the athletically gifted but inconsistent defender.New England, of course Kenny Britt Jersey , lost its top edge defender — Trey Flowers — to the Detroit Lions in free agency. And despite adding Michael Bennett via trade and having Deatrich Wise Jr. and John Simon return, the group could benefit from a young developmental option with high upside. Thomas would be just that, despite his so far underwhelming and potentially soon-ending two-year stint with the 49ers.“Thomas shows repeatedly that he at least knows how to defeat blockers both inside and out, against the run and against the pass,” wrote former NFL player and SB Nation analyst Stephen White about Thomas during 2017’s pre-draft process. “He’s a physical specimen with a decent level of technique. It’s going to come down to whether teams think he will fix his effort issues on the next level, and, since his hands aren’t likely to grow any more at this point, if he can get his hands stronger.”Effort is a key point here, as Thomas was prone to take plays off in college — a trait that has gotten better at the next level. However, he has still not grown into the player he should be given his athleticism and physical makeup: despite his talents and getting plenty of chances as a starting defensive end in San Francisco’s defense, the Stanford product notched only a combined 4.0 sacks between his 2017 rookie campaign and last year.That being said, the upside is undoubtably there and New England would have the ammunition to make a move.The Patriots have twelve draft picks — six of which in the first three rounds — and could afford to part with at least one of them with a player of Thomas’ caliber available; it is highly unlikely that this many rookies would make the team to begin with. Investing in a player like Thomas might therefore be a smart move, similar to trading for Brown one year ago.
