The Ravens offensive line has been through quite a week to open training camp.
and then the Ravens took another blow Tuesday when rookie Nico Siragusasuffered a season-ending knee injury.,womens Larry Ogunjobi Jersey,It started when center/guard John Urschel decided to retire two hours before the team’s first practice
forcing them to cycle through a heavy rotation just to get through a full practice. That was evident Wednesday as Baltimore had Jermaine Eluemunor,The injuries have left the Ravens shorthanded in the trenches, Stephane Nembot, Matt Skura and De’Ondre Wesley all take some reps with the first-team offense.
Nembot and starting right tackle James Hurst took reps at both tackle spots after starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley tweaked his leg early in practice. Stanley stayed on the practice field, but didn’t return to drills. He told reporters afterwards that he was fine, so that doesn’t seem to be a major concern.
the only expected starting lineman playing his natural position was left guard Alex Lewis. Everyone else was either out of position or moved up to the first team because of injuries. Veteran right guard Marshal Yanda isn’t practicing in full-team drills right now as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery.,At times during the latter part of practice
but I also think what’s compounded it have been the injuries,“[Shuffling] was part of the plan,Authentic David Njoku Jersey, then a couple injuries and Marshal not practicing,Authentic Howard Wilson Jersey,womens David Njoku Jersey,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. “With [Urschel’s] retirement, we probably had to do more of that than we want. Part of it is just to make sure we get through practice and we can run the plays.”
a fifth-round pick out of Texas A&M was particularly impressive during his work at right guard. Skura is also giving Ryan Jensen a good competition for the starting center job.,All of the shuffling has created some opportunities for young players. Eluemunor
and the injuries could lead them to look at bringing in depth through free agency or trades.,The offensive line is still very much in flux
I think it’s good,“In the end,” Harbaugh said. “It’s good for guys to get work at other spots, but I also want to make sure our starters get work at the spots where they’re going to be playing.”
Here were some of the other news and notes from the day:
but Harbaugh said after practice that he’s not going to get into timetables for every player who is dealing with an issue.,Authentic Jabrill Peppers Jersey,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey,- Wide receiver Breshad Perriman did not practice after tweaking his hamstring Tuesday. The injury isn’t expected to be significant
but Harbaugh said all indications have been “very positive” in terms of his progress. The initial plan was to have Flacco rest for a week and then evaluate him again.,Authentic Larry Ogunjobi Jersey,womens Howard Wilson Jersey,womens DeShone Kizer Jersey,womens Jabrill Peppers Jersey,- The biggest question on the injury front is still the status of starting quarterback Joe Flacco. He has yet to practice in training camp because of a back injury

which explains what the Baltimore Ravens defensive end did during his supposed down time.,John Harbaugh says he's never seen a harder worker than Bronson Kaufusi
In the weeks leading up to training camp, and ballots are due next week.), Kaufusi trained in the morning and campaigned for his mother -- putting up signs, is one of nine candidates in a crowded race. The primary elections are done by mail, handing out fliers and knocking on doors to try to help his mother become the first female mayor of Provo, Utah. (Michelle Kaufusi, who has served on the Provo school board
" Bronson Kaufusi said. "I had a lot of fun doing it.",womens Ty Sambrailo Jersey,"It was a great experience
Does he have any political aspirations after football?
you never know,womens Jeff Heuerman Jersey,"Well,Authentic A'Shawn Robinson Jersey, you just fall into things."," he said with a chuckle. "Sometimes
Kaufusi is focused on winning a starting job,womens Graham Glasgow Jersey,These days, Kaufusi suffered a season-ending ankle injury early in training camp last year. Harbaugh mentioned that an injury like this happens for a reason and it would allow Kaufusi to work on his body to become "a mature NFL football player physically.", not political office. A third-round pick a year ago
Harbaugh has been impressed with how Kaufusi looks.,A year later
his strength. He still has things to work on for sure; he's still a young guy. He's physically ready to go.","He's put an amazing amount of work in, in the weight room, in conditioning -- the whole thing,Authentic Ty Sambrailo Jersey,Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey,Authentic Taylor Decker Jersey, and it showed up in the way he walks around and carries himself,womens Taylor Decker Jersey,womens A'Shawn Robinson Jersey," Harbaugh said.

Kaufusi is a candidate to be a starter this season. He's currently running behind Brent Urban as Baltimore looks to replace Lawrence Guy at defensive end.,Authentic Graham Glasgow Jersey,A hulking presence at 6-foot-6 and 285 pounds
" defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. "That was the one thing that just stood out on film was that he just played hard all the time. You see it now,"He has a great motor; we knew that when we drafted him, the more he is going to put pressure on other people to play.", and I think the more he gets comfortable
Kaufusi has the size to stop the run and pass-rushing ability to make an impact on passing downs. He made 11 sacks his senior year at BYU and totaled 26.5 over his career.

the sequel is hard-pressed to match that feeling. Keanu Neal’s second season,When an original movie enthralls and captivates its audience with originality and excitement, may turn out much closer to “The Empire Strikes Back” than “Jaws 2.”, however
Neal finished second on the team with 106 total tackles. He defended nine passes and forced five fumbles while starting 14 games for the Falcons.,As a rookie
and he said they are putting in enough work to make the step forward that many are anticipating in 2017.,Neal is part of a defense that shows a lot of potential
“No question, and we definitely put in the work. We continue to grow,womens Hroniss Grasu Jersey,” Neal said after a training camp practice. “We want to be the best,womens William Jackson Jersey, and we’re continuing to strive for that each day.”,womens Tyler Boyd Jersey, as far as chemistry and just playing fast and continuing to grow. On a personal level, it’s an awesome experience just being with the guys and continuing to grow with them. We want to be the best
the average age of NFL defenses was 26.6 years old,womens Nick Vigil Jersey,The average age of the Falcons’ projected starting defense is 25.9 years old. In 2016, an NFL record., according to Football Outsiders. Neal was one of four rookies to start in last year’s Super Bowl
and then from his second to his third. Including nickel back Brian Poole,Coach Dan Quinn has often talked about the type of improvement a player can make from his first year to his second, he said he’s already starting to feel the positive effects of having a season of experience., the Falcons have six starters on defense who are entering Year 2 or Year 3. For Neal
“Just being comfortable with the defense,” Neal said. “With that, having a better understanding, it allows you to play faster. Just continuing to harp on the details and everything, it helped me out a lot.”, that’s always a big emphasis. The knowledge that I have now, going into Year 2,Authentic Hroniss Grasu Jersey, that I’ve gained from Year 1
Lining up further away from the line of scrimmage,Authentic William Jackson Jersey, it will fall on them to call out information and make adjustments so that the defense is aligned properly and in the right coverage.,Authentic Tyler Boyd Jersey, safeties tend to see the entire field with a bit more clarity. Oftentimes
With a rookie playing beside him,Authentic Nick Vigil Jersey,Authentic Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey, as he’s seen a big improvement in Neal’s understanding of the game.,womens Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey, starting free safety Ricardo Allen played a large role in organizing the defense last season. Allen doesn’t expect that to be the case moving forward
“Just noticing the defense more,” Allen said of the areas where Neal has progressed. “The communication is up to par, noticing offensive formations, (there’s) no thinking at all., anymore. He’s just ready to go. He was already a guy who played at a very fast speed, man. You don’t have those rookie jitters, so now
Early in practice Tuesday, but the message was clearand walked slowly behind the line of scrimmage where the extra players stood — the second unit’s turn had come up — with his head down. Immediately,womens Brett Hundley Jersey, especially when Palmer imitated Nelson’s hanging head: Keep your head up, J.J. Nelson dropped a touchdown pass from Carson Palmer in the red zone. The wide receiver was clearly bothered,Palmer found him. What was said is unknown, Palmer was saying, because it’s on to the next play.
the next time Nelson was on the field, he caught a pass and Palmer — who this time was not the QB — made sure to seek out Nelson for the congratulatory slap. It’s one of the underrated parts of Palmer’s game,Indeed, the leadership in such situations.,womens Ty Montgomery Jersey,
who loves to talk,— It was an eventful practice.,womens Nick Martin Jersey The defense was into the battles given that the No. 1 offense and No. 1 defense faced off. Linebacker Markus Golden, was talking quite a bit when the defense was winning its plays.
both he and Tyrann Mathieu blitzed. Afterward,— Authentic Tyler Ervin Jersey, The Cardinals slid rookie safety Budda Baker into the first unit in their dime package. One time, Baker talked about how much he loved to blitz — another parallel between he and Mathieu.
— Phil Dawson easily drilled a 58-yard field goal among his attempts (without a miss).
who quickly signed them all. It was such a brief moment,Authentic Ty Montgomery Jersey,— This is how you cultivate a fan base. After the first unit got through part of one period — and Patrick Peterson knew he’d have a few minutes on the sideline — he sent an equipment intern to the sideline where a man and his two boys were sitting. All had Peterson jerseys. The intern fetched the jerseys and took them to Peterson,Authentic Nick Martin Jersey,but the fans were thrilled.
quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich got to call some offensive plays into the walkie-talkie during one period. It really shouldn’t be a surprise. Bruce Arians likes to groom his young coaches,womens Braxton Miller Jersey, and getting Leftwich a few reps in the middle of a practice is a good start. Offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin called the plays in the Hall of Fame game,womens Tyler Ervin Jersey,— Interestingly, and I’m guessing he’ll do at least one other game in the preseason.
6 seconds left,— The practice ended with a special situation: Offense on the defense’s 8-yard line, third downAuthentic Brett Hundley Jersey,. The first unit started with David Johnson drawing a pass interference in the end zone and then a fade to Larry Fitzgerald for a TD. The second unit was stopped when rookie Chad Williams couldn’t hang on to a pass at the goal line. The third unit scored on a laser from Blaine Gabbert to Carlton Agudosi.
playing zone and jumping on a Drew Stanton pass. “Was able to kind of see the whole picture,— Newcomer Tramon Williams also got his first interception as a Cardinal,” Williams said. “Read the quarterback and just kind of came off. I had a good jump on the ball.Authentic Braxton Miller Jersey, ”
No talk of the future is valid without quarterback considerations. Mathieu’s nod to Johnson’s ability to keep the offense “sane” in that case is only one example, and Keim acknowledges that is a question that must be answered for the Cardinals to truly embrace a successful future.
for example,There will be contracts to juggle as well. Both Golden and Johnson, are eligible for extensions after this season before heading into the final year of their rookie contract. Neither price tag will be cheap.
it was painfully obvious it was time for a rebuild.Authentic Harrison Butker Jersey,After the Boston Celtics were bounced from the opening round of the 2013 playoffs
Even coach Doc Rivers, started yearning for greener pastures.,womens Adam Shaheen Jersey, the man at the helm of two NBA Finals appearances and one championship over the previous six seasons
the Celtics had agreed to deals that would deliver Rivers to the LA Clippers and aging stars and future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets in a jaw-dropping blockbuster.,By late June that yearAuthentic Tarik Cohen Jersey
giving him a six-year deal that underscored the daunting nature of the process that was ahead.,womens Harrison Butker Jersey,Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge then hired 36-year-old college wunderkind Brad Stevens as the team's new coach
the Celtics are coming off a season in which they won an East-best 53 games and appear on the cusp of returning to legitimate title contention. How did Boston turn things around so quickly?,Authentic Adam Shaheen Jersey,A mere four years after hitting the reset button
targeting undervalued talent that formed the Celtics' chip-on-their-shoulder core while also feverishly stockpiling future draft picks. ,womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,They hit a couple of home runs along the way (Boston is still collecting picks from the Pierce/Garnett swap and got All-NBA guard Isaiah Thomas virtually for free thanks to the aftershocks of the Nets blockbuster).,,Ainge and his front-office staff relentlessly overhauled the team's roster
Stevens has squeezed every drop of talent out of all the players that have passed through -- and there have been many of them -- and the rest of the league, took notice of Boston's expedited climb and have rushed to join the voyage.,womens Eddie Jackson Jersey,, including some of the biggest free agents of the past two summers
The Celtics made more than 70 major moves over the past four years, is smiling. Bogans, MarShon Brooks and Kris Humphries -- the primary player haul from the Nets blockbuster -- and only Stevens,,Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, two weeks into the jobwomens Tarik Cohen Jersey, and Brooks look like hostages,Authentic Eddie Jackson Jersey, including 21 trades that helped bring back 16 future draft picks to Boston. A look at how the franchise fast-forwarded through the rebuilding process:There's a rather hilarious photo from when the Celtics introduced Keith Bogans who earned an absurd $5 million windfall in order for Boston to maximize a trade exception, while Humphries and Ainge seem leery at best.
he wants this unit to be better than the 2000 Ravens defense.,Baltimore Ravens nose tackle Brandon Williams has set the bar high for his defense entering the 2017 season. Williams not only expects Baltimore’,womens Hau'oli Kikaha Jersey, s defense to be ranked No. 1 in the NFL
Williams recently spoke with “The Reynolds Report” per Gridiron Magazine and is excited about what Baltimore’s defense can do in 2017.
Baltimore’s defense in 2000 — featuring Ray Lewis,Authentic Sheldon Rankins Jersey, Michael McCrary,Authentic Vonn Bell Jersey, Peter Boulware,womens Andrus Peat Jersey, Rod Woodson,Authentic Hau'oli Kikaha Jersey, Tony Siragusa, Rob Burnett, Jamie Sharper, Sam Adams, Chris McAlister and Duane Starks — put up historic numbers.
Baltimore’s defense in 2000 held opponents to 10 points or less in 15 out of the 20 games they played (including playoffs).,womens Sheldon Rankins Jersey,,The 2000 Ravens currently hold the NFL record for the least points allowed in a 16 game regular season (165). most shutouts in a season (four) and the least rushing yards allowed in a season at 970. To put things into perspective
Baltimore’s defense allowed just 167 points as a defensive unit (Ravens allowed 188 points as a team).,Authentic Andrus Peat Jersey,Authentic Stephone Anthony Jersey,The 2000 Ravens are the only team in NFL history that has allowed fewer than 200 points in 20 games. From Week 1 through Super Bowl XXXV
Now,womens Stephone Anthony Jerseylet’s put focus into Baltimore’s 2017 defense because on paper they look good.
With the additions of safety Tony Jefferson and pairing him up with Eric Weddle on the back end provides a top-five safety duo in the NFL. Combine the safeties with the additions of cornerbacks Brandon Carr,Authentic Garrett Grayson Jersey, Brandon Boykin and first-round pick Marlon Humphrey to help Jimmy Smith and the Ravens have upgraded a secondary that ranked ninth in the NFL in 2016. That’s not even including Lardarius Webb who was a starter at free safety last season and performed well.
Then,womens Garrett Grayson Jersey, factor in All-Pro linebackers Terrell Suggs and C.J. Mosley in Baltimore’s front seven while adding Williams into the mix and this unit has something special.
Bronson Kaufusi,Young defensive players Kamalei Correa, Tyus Bowser and Tim Williams were all selected in the first three rounds of the last two NFL drafts by Baltimore and they are expected to play big roles as well. womens Vonn Bell JerseyThe team also returns pass rusher Matt Judon who had four sacks as a rookie last season and is expected to take another step forward as a pass rusher to hopefully give the Ravens a tandem against the quarterback.
The Bears,Authentic Josh Reynolds Jersey, the Cardinals and really, who takes the third game of the preseason like it’s bullspit? Bullspit!
I know it’s only Week 2 for the Bears — and frankly, for the Cardinals,Authentic Mike Williams Jersey, who aren’t marching their main guys out for a half until next week’s Week 4/Week 3 game in Atlanta — so again,Authentic Forrest Lamp Jersey, this is more of a ramp-up game. Bruce Arians isn’t calling plays until next week (that falls on QB coach Byron Leftwich again.)
There will be around 20 plays for the starters,womens Dan Feeney Jersey, although as usual it could be less if each unit is effective. The biggest story in the game will probably be Chicago QBs Mike Glennon vs. Mitchell Trubisky,womens Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey, so we can see how Tyrann Mathieu and Patrick Peterson and company can mess with the immediate Bears future.
(In ’06,womens Gerald Everett Jersey, that Bears preseason game was Matt Leinart’s second appearance in the NFL, after playing on only a couple of days of practice — he signed late — in New England the week before. Leinart vs Warner. Those were the days.)womens Josh Reynolds Jersey,
— It’ll be the first game for left tackle D.J. Humphries. Arians said Humphries did fine in his first practice Wednesday. I thought he had a slow start to Thursday’s work. As with the whole offensive line,Authentic John Johnson Jersey,he needs to ramp up — although again, with so much camp, there is plenty of time to get ready.
— Speaking of getting ready, the same goes for linebacker Karlos Dansby, who has been bothered by a leg issue. Deone Bucannon is ostensibly still on target to return to practice likely after the preseason games are over. Maybe a couple of days before. That inside linebacker crew could be a juggling situation for the first game. Haason Reddick is clearly still learning, and Scooby Wright,womens Forrest Lamp Jersey, while solid on special teams, has shortcomings on defense. Both are players to watch against the Bears.
— DT Robert Nkemdiche has played well in the preseason but this week,womens Mike Williams Jersey, the coaching clearly got harder. Nkemdiche is doing the right things as far as effort and intensity. But the technique must improve,Authentic Dan Feeney Jersey, because that is what will beat the better players in the regular season. Everyone has the talent.
— Others I’ll be watching in particular this week: Both punters; Kerwynn Williams on another punt return or two; the down-depth-chart receivers like Carlton Agudosi and Chris Hubert in particular since Brittan Golden (groin) likely won’t play; Justin Bethel and Tramon Williams (I haven’t forgotten about CB No. 2); and more Budda Baker.
— It’d be nice to see a little David Johnson but not too much.Authentic Cooper Kupp Jersey,
— I’ll be curious to see how much John Brown plays. Smoke did much more in practice this week. But he certainly is not 100 percent and the trainers keep a close eye on that quad injury. Still,Authentic Gerald Everett Jersey,Brown made some plays Thursday,womens Cooper Kupp Jersey, and after one touchdown Larry Fitzgerald made sure everyone knew it was Smoke and then made sure to give Brown the side-five.
— Fitz,womens John Johnson Jersey, by the way, seemed like he was having a great time Thursday. For a guy who is usually tops on the list of wishing training camp wasn’t so long, it didn’t seem to be impacting him. That’s probably good, because after the game, there’s still one week left.,Authentic Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey,
Striking a cut and well-proportioned 215 pounds on his hulking 6-foot-3 frame,Authentic Alex Anzalone Jersey, Max Jones no doubt carries the physique of a mature NHL player.
or assessing his desire to make the leap from junior hockey to a Western Conference power in front of inquiring reporters. At 19,womens Trey Hendrickson Jersey,A heaping slice of confidence comes with that. It is evident in simple conversation with fellow Ducks prospects within a locker room,womens Adrian Peterson Jersey, Jones already carries a presence.
His response to a question about being challenged enough in the Ontario Hockey League is a bold one.womens Dwayne Allen Jersey,
“I don’t know if it’s about that,” Jones said at the Ducks’ prospect camp earlier this month. womens Drew Brees Jersey“I just think … I won a Memorial Cup. I think it’s time to move on and try to win a Stanley Cup. That’s kind of what my idea is.
“I want to step into the big leagues and I want to …womens Brandin Cooks Jersey, for years and years I’ve been watching teams win that Stanley Cup and that’s all I want to do right now. Start playing and try to win a Stanley Cup.”
that 6-foot-5, Jones just spoke of his eagerness to bang bodies with someone such as Dustin Byfuglien. Yes,Quickly following that up with a clarification that he’s not knocking the competition level of playing with juniors, 265-pound Dustin Byfuglien.Authentic Dwayne Allen Jersey
in Jones’s case, the OHL’s London Knights, is a feat. Showing that he could chase down fellow Ducks winger prospect Jack Kopacka,Authentic Stephon Gilmore Jersey,But it’s one thing to have the look or even the desire. Making the jump to the NHL from playing in the Western Hockey League or the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League or,womens Stephon Gilmore Jersey, force a turnover and create a scoring chance in a camp scrimmage is nice. Nice is hardly enough.
the Ducks’ Cam Fowler,Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey, to a lesser extent,Unless you’re Sidney Crosby or Connor McDavid or, it is a leap that comes with a lot of challenges most aren’t ready for on the first try. And it isn’t as if Jones tore up the OHL and made it his personal playground.
but it hardly suggests that he’s The Next Big Thing. Jones’ second OHL season was limited to 33 games,Forty-five goals and 88 points in 96 games over two seasons is encouraging for a first-round draft pick, a broken arm keeping him out six weeks.womens Alex Anzalone Jersey, It wasn’t the only interruption.
after making him the 24th overall selection,A 10-game suspension for cross-checking in February was added to his rap sheet after his much-publicized ban for a vicious blindside hit during the 2016 playoffs. On draft night, Ducks GM Bob Murray said Jones was immature and “had to grow up a little bit.”
But the second season carried a strong finish with impact throughout his two-round stay in the OHL postseason. ,Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey, Jones then got a taste of the next level when the Ducks brought him to the San Diego Gulls for the American Hockey League’s Calder Cup playoffs.womens Michael Thomas Jersey, It only made him hungrier.
it was a real eye-opener,” Jones said. “It was my first pro experience. I was trying to keep my eyes openears open,, mouth closed and just kind of be aware of my surroundings. When I stepped on the ice to play,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey,“Going to San Diego,, it was just like I did 100 times in the season. I just kept doing what I do.
“Kept my pregame rituals the same. Obviously the game’s a little more different. More fast. It came to me pretty easily,Authentic Trey Hendrickson Jersey,Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey, pretty quickly. I started producing as much as I could. Obviously I wished I could play there but I can’t. So it’s either Anaheim or London now.”
He’s a first-round draft pick of the Anaheim Ducks, he quietly got more points than anybody else in major junior last season with 131 in 66 games played for the Regina Pats, which will almost surely come this December., and the only thing missing from the 19-year-old’s individual resume is a centre spot on Canada’s 2018 world junior team
He had a strong junior camp last year but was surprisingly cut.,Authentic Tyler Boyd Jersey,
“Hopefully, come Christmas time,” said Steel, I can earn my way onto that team, who was at the first two days of Perry Pearn’s 3-on-3 pro camp at Knights of Columbus Twin Arenas.
“It’s a pretty special opportunity that only comes around once or twice for guys in their junior careers,” said Steel, no griping., who took the first cut last December in stride. No sulking
This will be Steel’s fourth junior year, probably too much because he’s finished high school,womens Eddie Goldman Jersey, he’ll likely be named team captain, but the Pats are hosting the Memorial Cup,Authentic William Jackson Jersey, and his seat on the Pats’ team bus can’t get much better.
“I’ve moved my way back,” laughed the six-foot not all the way because that’s for the 20s (overage juniors) but close. Feels like yesterday I was at the front of the bus with all the other rookies, playmaking left-shot Steel,womens Nick Vigil Jersey, 180-pound,womens Jake Fisher Jersey, who scored 50 goals and 81 assists last season.
” defenceman Josh Mahura, a local product who is Steel’s Pats teammate and a fellow Ducks stablemate, and all of a sudden,womens Tyler Kroft Jersey, told Anaheim writers this summer. “You never know what he’s going to do. You think you’ve got a guy covered,“He’s unreadable, the puck’s in the back of your net. womens Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey,He’s pretty good at everything.”
may be too big a task for Steel this year, who lost to the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference final,Authentic Jake Fisher Jersey,Trying to make the Ducks, but he’ll roll with it.
” said Steel,“There’s always room to improve (junior), Authentic Hroniss Grasu Jersey,who didn’t get a look at captain Ryan Getzlaf or Ryan Kesler at last year’s Anaheim camp after they took the teenager 30th overall in 2016 because both were at the World Cup of Hockey.
who specialize in that sort of thing (they got Corey Perry at No. 28), but he was still there with the last pick in Round 1. The Ducks,Pats head coach and general manager John Paddock spoke glowingly about Steel before the 2016 draft, jumped on him.
because that’s a lot for anybody, but not necessarily: They (NHL teams) should have just listened when they asked me (about Steel)” Paddock told Regina Leader-Post columnist Rob Vanstone. “The kind of year he had last season — 131 points — is surprising,Authentic Eddie Goldman Jersey,“I say this sort of half-jokingly, but they should have listened (draft time) when I said that he would have had 85 points (he had 70) if we’d had (high-scoring right-winger) Cole Sanford all year. This is somebody who should have gone in the 15 to 20 range. They didn’t listen.”
The Ducks liked him,womens Hroniss Grasu Jersey, though.
Mich.,womens William Jackson Jersey,womens Tyler Boyd Jersey, he’s appearing on some significant stages. He starred in the recent world junior showcase in Plymouth, representing the DucksAuthentic Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey, on a line with winger Jordan Kyrou, with 24 other drafted kids,Now,Authentic Tyler Kroft Jersey, a St. Louis Blues prospect. He’s off to the NHLPA’s rookie showcase in Toronto next week, and he’ll be the centrepiece of Paddock’s Pats, who lost the Western Hockey League championship to Seattle last spring.
” said Steel. “For me and lots of other guys in Anaheim, ,Authentic Nick Vigil Jersey,but that’s part of the challenge,“They’ve got a lot of guys on that team who’ve been around a long time … the Ducks are a good organization and it’ll be hard to make it, you watch what their older guys do. They’ve been there that long for a reason.”
The network revealed its official list of the top-20 centers in the league on Sunday, and the consistently underrated Bergeron once again found himself being sold a little short as he was ranked No. 11. The list certainly appears to have valued offensive players over those with more complete games, in addition to betting on long-term success rather than the best players right now.
Bergeron is ranked just ahead of the Blackhawks’ Jonathan Toews at No. 12 (arguably even more ridiculous). They each rank behind the likes of the Leafs’ Auston Matthews (No. 4), the Capitals’ Nicklas Backstrom (No. 5), the Lightning’s Steven Stamkos (No. 7), the Stars’ Tyler Seguin (No. 8),womens Chandler Jones Jersey, the Islanders’ John Tavares (No. 6),Authentic Haason Reddick Jersey, and the Jets’ Mark Scheifele (No. 10).
The top-3 – Connor McDavid, Sidney Crosby,womens Budda Baker Jersey, in that order – are perfectly fine rankings,womens Chad Williams Jersey, even if Crosby may still deserve No. 1 over McDavid. But considering the rest of the names in the top-10, and Evgeni Malkin,Authentic T. J. Logan Jersey, Bergeron should have at least gotten consideration for the top-5. He remains the best defensive center in the league and still managed to put up 50-plus points last season despite a terrible start; he put up 41 points in 43 games with a plus-12 rating once the calendar turned to 2017.
Not to mention, Bergeron has won more Stanley Cups (one) than Matthews, Tavares, Stamkos, Backstrom, and Scheifele combined (zero).
Ryan Getzlaf (No. 9) has won a Stanley Cup and is still one of the game’s best leaders and better all-around players. Tavares and Stamkos have at least proven to be consistently elite talents,Authentic Chandler Jones Jersey,Authentic John Brown Jersey, and Tavares in particular has elevated himself when given the opportunity to play in the playoffs (11 points in 11 playoff games in 2016). Those three have a case against Bergeron,womens John Brown Jersey,womens Haason Reddick Jersey, for sure.
But did Matthews really do that much as a rookie that he’s already proved to be a better player than the aforementioned three? Did Scheifele do the same after one season (which admittedly was a fantastic one)? And what exactly has Seguin done besides turn in a few good offensive seasons to vault himself above some players who are clearly better all-around talents right now? These are players with loads of talent that still need more time and experience to prove they’re better than the likes of Bergeron and Toews.
It’s pretty clear that the NHL Network assembled this list as if you were drafting a dynasty league team. Looking at the best centers over the course of the next decade,Authentic Budda Baker Jersey, clearly you’d take McDavid first and Matthews would also be one of the first centers taken. At 32 years old,Authentic Chad Williams Jersey,Authentic Dorian Johnson Jersey, Bergeron’s very best days may be behind him.
But in the second half of last season,womens Dorian Johnson Jersey,womens T. J. Logan Jersey, Bergeron showed why he’s still one of the best all-around players in the NHL, not just one of the best centers. He’s still the perennial favorite to win the Selke Trophy,Authentic Takkarist McKinley Jersey, presumably after he fully recovered from his early-season injuries,womens Takkarist McKinley Jersey, and still capable of netting 30 goals and 60-70 points to go with his elite defense.
and that calls for an assessment on Sean Monahan,womens Jordan Howard Jersey, the NHL revealed the Top 20 centers in the league, however, who has become a nice success for the Calgary Flames after being picked sixth overall in the 2013 Draft. His placement,Earlier in August, appears to be disappointingly low.
there were several teams that had more than one center on the rankings, Washington Capitals, and the Edmonton Oilers. It is still disappointing, including the Los Angeles Kings, however, there could be more than half of the NHL teams represented before a center for the Flames could be ranked. As it turns out,He barely made the list by placing 20th. In other words, to see a top center be “worse” than a second-line center for other teams, including one that did not come close to the playoffs last season.
who was the top center in the rankings, Nicklas Backstrom, John Tavares,Authentic Cam Newton Jersey, Sidney Crosby, or Auston Matthews. Some of the players farther back,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey, there are plenty of centers that are certainly better than Sean Monahan. No one will argue the greatness of Connor McDavid,Realistically,womens Kawann Short Jersey, however,womens Thomas Davis Sr Jersey, are the biggest questions that I have.
the second of which halted last season to just 17 games played. Even without the injuries, but the “if healthy” tag hurts his case. He cruised through the NHL until after the lockout-shortened season. He has since dealt with two significant injuries,womens Walter Payton Jersey, meaning he may have reached his peak a little too soon. Until Stamkos can prove he is not declining at the age of 27, his numbers are significantly lower than they were during his first four seasons,The highest player in the rankings that that I feel Monahan could best is Steven Stamkos. There is no denying that Stamkos has been a centerpiece for Tampa Bay’s success in this decade, Monahan may have the upper hand because of his value to the Flames and his potential to build on his 58 points from last season.Authentic Andy Dalton Jersey,
I also questioned the Los Angeles centers because I feel their rankings were based on merit. Any player, Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar in this case, who wins two Stanley Cups in three seasons are bound to gain some popularity, last season should not have done these players any favors. Carter had an incredible season, and he probably should have been higher than 18th on the list, but Kopitar was not as spectacular. While he had a great assist total, especially in the City of Angels. Based on current rankings, however, he had a hard time finding the net. His 12 goals were his lowest in any season outside of the lockout-shortened season, and he is now 30 year old for a team that will continue to struggle offensively.,Authentic Greg Olsen Jersey, Is that really worthy of being higher than the top scoring threat for Calgary?
The biggest confusion, however, was Ryan Johansen. His expectations werewomens Greg Olsen Jersey, high coming out of the 2010 Draft, that he ended up in John Tortorella’s doghouse and was subsequently traded to a pedestrian offense in Nashville (at the time). He deserves credit for being a huge part of Nashville’s playoff run,womens Cam Newton Jersey,womens Luke Kuechly Jersey, but he may be known more for his tussle and choice words for Ryan Kesler. Add on the fact that the Predators signed him to an eight-year, $64 million contract over the summer,Authentic Kawann Short Jersey,and he has met them on three occasions. It did not help, howeverAuthentic Thomas Davis Sr Jersey,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey,womens Andy Dalton Jersey,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey, and the NHL is looking at a player who is being paid top dollar despite not always being the best on his team. The “overrated” label could come soon, especially since the Predators have proven their worth in the Western Conference.
There was Mike Smith, entering a no-frills gym,womens Jason Witten Jersey, five days before his 52nd birthday,womens Tyron Smith Jersey, rubbing his strong-as-graphene hands in anticipation of another rigorous workout that would send men of a similar age to a Bengay bath and then a sleeper sofa.
It hardly mattered that he had galloped horses that morning and would return to the racetrack in the afternoon to ride three races.
For years,womens Zack Martin Jersey, far younger) riders by the wayside.,womens Travis Frederick Jersey, Smith, has adhered to an almost-daily routine,womens Cole Beasley Jersey, one of the nation’s oldest jockeys, whipping himself through fitness extremes that leave his fellow (and,Authentic John Elway Jersey, often
While Smith believes more is better in the gym, on the racetrack he favors a different approach: He uses his skills sparingly but on better horses. In his case,womens Von Miller Jersey, quality beats quantity by 10 lengths.
It is a formula that has turned him into the most dependable jockey on the American circuit and earned him the nickname Big Money Mike.
Smith will ride Arrogate,On Saturday, in the Pacific Classic at Del Mar. In fact, the world’s top-ranked thoroughbred, he is the regular rider for nearly half of the thoroughbreds in the National Thoroughbred Racing Association top 10 poll.
Smith is poised to annihilate the record for average earnings per start in a year and validate his nickname. Through Wednesday, won $6 million., according to Equibase, which computed to $88,832 for each break from the gate. That does not even include the Dubai World Cup in March, a mere 169 mounts in 2017 in North American races had been converted into just over $15 million in purse money, which tracks statistics for the racing industry,Authentic Jason Witten Jersey, in which Smith,Authentic Tyron Smith Jersey, riding Arrogate
Jose Ortiz,Authentic Zack Martin Jersey, had amassed 933 races and accounted for $18,Authentic Travis Frederick Jersey,Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey, who sits atop the total earnings list,Authentic Sean Lee Jersey,975 per clip.
Arrogate’s trainer,Bob Baffert,womens Sean Lee Jersey,womens John Elway Jersey, whether an outing that involves winless 2-year-olds or a leg in the Triple Crown, asserts that for any given race,Authentic Von Miller Jersey, “I’d go with Mike Smith.”
Getting him to ride your horse is another thing altogether. There are days at Del Mar when Smith shows up for a single race. Three mounts constitute a busy afternoon. The days that he would accept at least a half-dozen assignments — or pull double duty by dashing from Aqueduct or Belmont to a night card at the Meadowlands, as he did while based in New York — are a distant memory.
His agent, Brad Pegram, said Smith was riding better now than in any other phase of their 13-year affiliation.
Smith has placed his faith in two personal trainers. On this day, one of them was hulking over him as he did the bench-press. Smith winced from shoulder pain, a result of being ejected off a horse a week earlier.
“He usually goes a ton harder than this, who has trained N.F.L. players including Junior Seau,” said Brian Killion, the Hall of Fame linebacker who died in 2012. “This is junior varsity day.”
Still, Smith proceeded at a frenetic pace, hustling to stations while sidestepping a wandering dog as sweat beaded on his bald pate. Conversation was limited by his heavy breathing and resolve to avoid a pause.
“I got next,” Smith cracked as he passed two patrons nearly twice his size who were wrestling playfully.
Smith squeezed some three dozen sets — doing kettlebell lifts and situps, and using resistance machines and a device that replicated yanking on reins — into an hour.
One formula for success in today’s NHL is conceptually simple: A team needs strong play up the middle.
Pulling off the formula is the hard part.
A look at the Stanley Cup winners since the 2005 lockout only reinforces this notion. The Pittsburgh Penguins have Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. The Chicago Blackhawks have Jonathan Toews. Anze Kopitar was at the top of his game when the Los Angeles Kings won their titles in 2012 and 2014. Patrice Bergeron came up big for the Boston Bruins in 2011.
In the previous decade,womens Cody Kessler Jersey, who delivered 45 goals and 100 points during that season., Pavel Datsyuk was the centerpiece for the Detroit Red Wings during their run of success. Even the improbable 2006 champs from Carolina had Eric Staal
building up the middle isn’t just a good strategy — it’s a downright essential one… which brings us to the Montreal Canadiens.,So yes
The Habs own high hopes and aspirations of bringing the Stanley Cup north of the border for the first time since their franchise won it all in 1993. They have arguably the best goalie in the world, and a gifted defenseman with one of the hardest slap shots in league history., an extremely underrated goal scorer in Max Pacioretty
They changed head coaches toward the end of last season; Authentic Cameron Erving Jersey,swung an aggressive trade to bring in Jonathan Drouin this summer; and are feeling the weight of lofty expectations from the hockey-rich community they call home.
do they have enough to work with at the highly coveted center position?,HoweverAuthentic Carl Nassib Jersey,
it doesn’t appear so — not on paper,At the moment, at least. Authentic Paul Dawson Jersey,Phillip Danault was a pleasant surprise for the Habs this past season, but he’s more valuable when moved down in the lineup. Asking him to play up the middle in a top-six role makes his production look more like a deficiency than a positive — through no fault of his own.
and looked at what the newly acquired 22-year-old brings to Montreal.,womens Carl Nassib JerseyThis brings us back to Drouin. Marc Antoine Godin of La Presse joined The Natural Hat Trick Podcast recently
“It was a bold move. The negotiations for Drouin dated back a year, 20 years. He’s extremely creative,Authentic Corey Coleman Jersey,” Godin explains. “Around the time that Drouin was in disputes with the Lightning. He’s a fit with the Canadiens for a number of reasons. He could be an option at center, he’s an elite passer. Whether he plays with Alex Galchenyuk or with Max Pacioretty,, where the team has struggled for, what,,womens Shon Coleman Jersey, he’s pretty sure to have a guy next to him that’s got a great release and who can finish his plays.”
that would be a huge addition for Montreal.Authentic Shon Coleman Jersey It should be pointed out that he played mostly on the wing in Tampa,womens Danny Shelton Jersey,If Drouin can play the role of playmaking pivot so that’s far from a given. While the move to acquire him was met favorably across the hockey world, there’s plenty of pressure on the youngster now.
As Godin also points out, ,Authentic Danny Shelton Jerseythey lost Alex Radulov to free agency later in the offseason. Authentic Emmanuel Ogbah JerseyThey may merely break even in terms of offensive output up front — except they also had to deal away top prospect Mikhail Sergachev to get Drouin. Simply having him become a productive winger might not be enough anymore., the Canadiens acquired Drouin with the hope that he would boost their offense. However
Montreal has another skilled young forward,Of course,,womens Cameron Erving Jersey, Alex Galchenyuk, who could potentially fill a center role as well. That debate has been raging for awhile.
” Godin concedes. “I would say he was a liability there. But if the Canadiens had invested in him as a center from day one — because they had a need for a young,“There’s no doubt that he needs to understand the defensive side of the job as a center, first line center — those worries would have been resolved by now. But it’s been a constant yo-yo between wing and center,womens Paul Dawson Jersey, and center and wing.”
Godin noted that while Galchenyuk still needs to improve aspects of his game — and some feel he’s more of a shoot-first guy than a traditional passer — he played his best hockey when centering two quality wingers.,womens Corey Coleman Jersey
it’s the sort of contract that wouldn’t be hard to trade if the right offer came along. In other words,womens Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey,Godin also suggests there was a “50-50” chance that Galchenyuk could have been dealt at the draft in June. Even though he does have a new deal nowAuthentic Cody Kessler Jersey,, the former first-round pick (No. 3 in 2012) isn’t necessarily on completely stable footing with the organization if that improvement doesn’t come soon.
That’s how the Canadiens are entering camp for the 2017-18 campaign. The move to land Drouin was ambitious, and now they have two undeniable young talents: Drouin and Galchenyuk. They’ll almost certainly need one of them to thrive at center — at least if they truly want to take the next step as a team this season.
but one of the most important pieces in that rebuild is asking fans to keep an open mind.,Expectations for the Vancouver Canucks this season are…not high. There is likely going to be pain as the franchise transitions from one era to the nextwomens T. J. Logan Jersey,,
“Erase the memory of last season,Authentic Haason Reddick Jersey, so it should be a good year.” said rookie right winger Brock Boeser. “Start fresh. I heard the Sedins had a great summer of training and I know they’ll be in shape like they are every year. Everyone is super-excited to get here. They signed some really good free agents

The Minnesota native found immediate success, while also finding chemistry on a line with Bo Horvat and Sven Baertschi. “Right off the bat they were welcoming and took me under their wings,” Boeser said. “They always communicated if I was doing something wrong or if I had to do something differently. The way Bo plays and how hard he works
Which is great for the Canucks, so I’m looking forward to training camp.”, because that could be the team’s best line as soon as this season. Horvat is a fantastic two-way player and at 22, a first-round draft pick (23rd overall in 2015) with a wicked shot and great offensive instincts,Authentic Chandler Jones Jersey, will be a key triggerman for Vancouver in the coming years and getting his feet wet last season was crucial for him. “Those nine games helped me tremendously, the way they take care of their bodies,Authentic John Brown Jersey,Authentic Budda Baker Jersey, he is just entering his prime years.

And it was pretty cool to see the community come out and support everyone and Da Beauty League gives back to charity, Kyle Okposo and Jake Gardiner. “It’s a tremendous league and it means a lot to me to be a part of it,” Boeser said. “There was so many talented NHL guys there

so he intends on working as hard as he can to secure a roster spot this fall. ,womens Budda Baker Jersey,Boeser has spoken with new Canucks coach Travis Green several times and said he is getting an idea of what the bench boss wants from him. One mission this summer was to get more explosive when it came to skating.,That was fun – as was the NHLPA Rookie Showcase that brought Boeser to Toronto recently – but now he's concentrating on the upcoming NHL season. He knows nothing is guaranteed in Vancouver

Although he scored just 37 points last season
Mike Heika,womens Cole Beasley Jersey, Stars beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered questions about
the team during a live chat recently. Here are some highlights:
Which guys entering contract years do you think are most important to have long term?
Heika: Jim Nill has done a great job of arranging his contracts so that there is a lot of control going
forward. Tyler Seguin has two years left, and he probably needs an extension before the 2018-19 season, so
you could say he has the most on the line before next summer, but there still is the wiggle room of not
having to get a deal done until the summer of 2019.
Players like Antoine Roussel or Dan Hamhuis,womens Nolan CarrollJersey, who are in the final years of their deals and can become UFAs
next summer,womens Dak Prescott Jersey, are support players who are making good money already. They can be replaced if they don't
have a good year,Authentic Tyron Smith Jersey, so there's not as much concern about their money. The guess is neither is going to sign
a long-term deal
Maybe the one guy who is an interesting case is Valeri Nichushkin. He is playing the final year of his KHL
contract,womens Tyron Smith Jersey, and will want to sign a big deal to return to the NHL next season. If he has a great year in the
KHL and maybe in the Olympics, he could sign a significant deal to return to the Stars. If he does not
play well,Authentic Travis Frederick Jersey, he might have to sign a team-friendly deal to come back and prove he can play in the NHL.He
might be the guy to watch in terms of getting a long-term deal.
Which guy can the Stars LEAST afford to lose to injury this year?
Heika: Probably Ben Bishop. Kari Lehtonen is a good NHL goalie, but the team is hoping to have great play
in net. Plus, there is not a lot in the way of AHL depth behind Lehtonen and Bishop right now.
Second on the list might be Alexander Radulov. The Stars don't have a lot of depth on right wing at this
Do you ever anticipate national anthem protests being an issue in the NHL?
Heika: The NHL is such an international game that I don't believe the anthem is a huge discussion point
for the athletes.
It only takes one athlete to protest to make it a story, so there is always a chance that happens, but NHL
players in my experience tend to avoid political controversy. That's just been a part of the culture of
the sport in the past.
If there is too much friction between Spezza and Hitch how do you think they would deal with it? No doubt
Hitch is going to be around for a while so would Nill start looking for a trade scenario to make both
sides happy? If so which team(s) do you think would be good trade partners and what position would the
Stars look to fill with it?
Heika: I don't want to start trading Jason Spezza before the season even starts, so I'll just say that I
honestly believe everyone involved will be professional and they will work very hard to make things fit.

Last week, Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn made headlines when he was named the no. 5 winger in the NHL right now. It was the first edition of the NHL Network’s series in which they name the top 20 players at each position.
the NHL Network released the next edition: top 20 centers right now. It’s a difficult list to make,Today, considering the immense amount of talent throughout the league down the middle. Not to mention that a top 20 list means that the first line centers on at least 11 teams don’t even make the cut.
The Dallas Stars have plenty of talent (maybe too much) at center. In fact, it’s debatably their strongest position. But how many of them have an argument to be in the top 20? Not very many.
however,There is one, that is a shoo-in: That’s Tyler Seguin.
and maybe even top five centers in the NHL at the current moment. He’s only 25,Tyler Seguin is undeniably one of the top 20, has already won a Stanley Cup, top 10,Authentic Philip Rivers Jersey, and consistently puts up some of the best numbers in the league.
he was given a reward: eighth place.,Authentic Melvin Gordon Jersey,And in yesterday’s rankings on the NHL Network
there are an average of 124 centers in the league. That means that Seguin is in the top seven percent among starting centers in the NHL. That sound terrific when you think about it.,womens Melvin Ingram Jersey,When you think about it
But was he lowballed? Or is he maybe above others that he shouldn’t be? Maybe he’s just right? Let’s take a quick look at the list.
View image on Twitter
Sidney Crosby,Authentic Aaron Donald Jersey,Ahead of Seguin you have Connor McDavid,womens Aaron Donald Jersey, Evgeni Malkin,womens Jared Goff Jersey, Auston Matthews, Nicklas Backstrom, John Tavares, and Steven Stamkos. Directly below Seguin and rounding out the top ten are Ryan Getzlaf and Mark Scheifele.
he definitely has a case to be higher than he is.,While there really isn’t a case for Seguin to be above Connor McDavid or Sidney Crosby considering it is best centers RIGHT NOW and not over their entire careers
Tyler Seguin is a multidimensional center that has slick hands, insane speed, a cannon of a shot, and precise shooting accuracy. He can snipe a shot home or set up one of his wingers for the easy score. His wheels make it hard for defenders to keep up with and help him easily break into the zone. He can play consistently at full strength as well as on the power play.
making him one of the very few players in the league that are above a point-per-game average. womens Melvin Gordon Jersey,That’s not easy to do.,Seguin has been a 70+ point player since joining the Dallas Stars in 2013. He has 306 points in 305 games with Dallas
So where should he be? Matthews just finished his rookie season with the Maple Leafs, and while he performed well (considering he was the 2016 no. 1 pick), he had a juggernaut offense behind him. He put up 69 points in his first season,womens Philip Rivers Jersey, with 40 of those being goals. He has a case to be in the top ten,Authentic Melvin Ingram Jersey, but above Seguin?
Backstrom and Tavares are both consistent centers like Seguin, but it’s hard for Backstrom to not be when he has Alex Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie on his sides. Tavares doesn’t have as much offensive help,Authentic Todd Gurley II Jersey,womens Eric Dickerson Jersey, so his performances are more acceptable,womens Todd Gurley II Jersey, though they are lesser than Seguin’s numbers.
And then you have Steven Stamkos.Authentic Eric Dickerson Jersey, He’s been hurt for extensive periods of time in two of the past four seasons. When he is healthy, he plays at about the same level as Seguin,Authentic Jared Goff Jersey, though Tyler’s stats beat Stamkos out even in his healthy years. Seguin has a strong case at being above Stamkos.
Maybe this is the last go-round for the aging Arizona Cardinals trio of Bruce Arians, Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald. At least one of them might call it quits after this season.
If it’s their last year together, they are convinced they are part of a team with the talent to contend.
“I really like the looks of our squad,” Arians said.
The 64-year-old coach is coming off a 7-8-1 year, the only losing record in his five seasons in Arizona.
The talent begins with David Johnson, perhaps the best and certainly the most versatile running back in the NFL.
“Like I’ve always said,Authentic Artemi Panarin jersey,” Arians said,Authentic Patrick Roy jersey, “he’s the closest thing I’ve been around since Marshall Faulk.”
Last year,Authentic Nathan MacKinnon jersey, in his second NFL season, Johnson led the league in yards from scrimmage (2,adidas Gabriel Landeskog jersey,118) and touchdowns (20). He led all running backs with 879 yards receiving.
In 32 career games, Johnson has scored 33 touchdowns,Authentic Scott Hartnell jersey, a statistic that helps make him a fantasy football darling.
He was first-team All-Pro in the newly created “flex” position, and second team at running back. Johnson was the first player in NFL history to top 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the first 15 games of the season and probably would have made it 16 had he not hurt his knee in the finale in Los Angeles.
This year,Authentic Nick Foligno jersey, the 2015 third-round draft pick out of Northern Iowa has set a lofty goal: topping 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving, something accomplished only by Faulk and Roger Craig.
“Most definitely a realistic, for-sure goal,” Johnson said, Authentic Gabriel Landeskog jersey,“just because I was so close last year and I feel like I have a lot more to improve.”
But as much as Johnson shines, the Cardinals’ success will ultimately rest with how the 37-year-old Palmer performs behind a redesigned offensive line. Arians is consistently giving Palmer time off to rest his arm. After a poor first half to last season,,adidas Patrick Roy jersey, Palmer rebounded in the final eight games.
“In football years, I think it’s perceived once you get to 35 you’re old,adidas Artemi Panarin jersey,” he said, “but if you can still put it on every day and play and work out and train and prepare mentally,, I look at is as being experienced and mature.”
Expectations weighed heavily on the Cardinals last year after they went 13-3 and made it to the NFC championship game in the 2015 season. The players seem to enjoy being away from that limelight as they prepare for the coming season.adidas Nathan MacKinnon jersey
Here are some things to watch on the 2017 Cardinals:Authentic Seth Jones jersey
FITZ’S FINALE? Fitzgerald, who turned 34 last week,adidas Seth Jones jersey, enters his 14th NFL season with statistics that already have cemented his Hall of Fame status. He ranks third in career receptions (1,,125), ninth in yards receiving (14,389) and eighth in touchdowns (104). And he’s still remarkably effective.
Last season, he led the NFL with 107 catches for 1,023 yards.adidas Nick Foligno jersey,
Whether this is his final season is anyone’s guess. He has promised there would be no grand announcement,adidas Scott Hartnell jersey that he would just walk away.
If John Brown can keep away from illness and injury, he’ll join steady Jaron Brown and speedy J.J. Nelson as the other chief passing targets.

Maxx Williams shed more than tackles on his 40-yard catch-and-run,Authentic Bobby Orr jersey, the biggest play in the Baltimore Ravens' 31-7 preseason victory Thursday in Miami.
The Ravens tight end pushed aside the perception that he wasn't fully recovered from a surgery no one will talk specifically about and reinserted himself into the conversation as a playmaker for this team.
"He’s a sneaky athlete," coach John Harbaugh said. "You want to think that he’s not athletic and all of a sudden he starts running people over and breaking tackles. That’s what we’ve been looking for from him since we drafted him. That was really fun to watch."
even when the Ravens made him the first true tight end drafted in 2015. But in this year's training camp,adidas Zdeno Chara jersey,Williams was never the most fluid runner,Authentic Tuukka Rask jersey, Williams was slow coming off the snap and couldn't get separation in routes.
This was the result of a knee surgery 10 months ago that the team described as complicated and rare. Harbaugh said it's the first time an NFL player has had this surgery then returned to playing.
What made this surgery so unique? Team officials say it's up to Williams to discuss it,Authentic Brad Marchand jersey, and Williams has declined to explain.
What Williams will say is he had to stay off his feet for 10 weeks and didn't begin running again until the middle of June.
"I use the analogy that someone had ACL surgery first,Authentic Jack Eichel jersey, I'm just the lucky one that had to do it. Hopefully,adidas Kyle Okposo jersey," the 23-year-old said. "So when I got my surgery first, if it works and I play great, someone else might need to do that. Hopefully this can change careers after me."
Williams' career hasn't gone exactly as he envisioned. The Ravens traded up in the second round to select Williams with the No. 55 overall pick.
He immediately showed promise in 2015, however, when he broke franchise rookie records for receptions (32) and receiving yards (268) by a tight end. His second season, was cut short. Williams was placed on injured reserve after four games (and no catches) because of a cartilage issue in his knee.
it was important for Williams to make an impact again,Because of the long layoff from playing football, even if it was a preseason game. He finished Thursday with two catches for 48 yards.
" Williams said,“It’s the best I’ve felt mentally,adidas Bobby Orr jersey, "just proving to myself that I can get back and play."

Oliver Ekman-Larsson will be the new captain
It’s pretty much a far gone conclusion that since former captain Shane Doan was unceremoniously not signed to a new contract to play for the Arizona Coyotes, that Oliver Ekman-Larsson will be his replacement.
Nothing formal has been announced, the team was grooming OEL to take over for him. It is a difficult act to follow,Authentic Stephon Gilmore Jersey, but even before it was decided that Doan would not be returning,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey, since Doan was loved by the community for his work on and off the ice.
Oliver Ekman-Larsson will just need to take over and be the captain every player on the roster admires,womens Michael Thomas Jersey, and relies upon to lead the team. He’s a proven All-Star player and will take on the new responsibilities without a hitch.
OEL had a difficult season last year, he was still second in scoring with a respectable 12 goals, and if he can bounce back his role as captain will be all that easier. Even though he led the team in scoring the two previous seasons, 27 assists in 79 games.
He would have played all 82 games if not losing his mother near the end of the season,Authentic Trey Hendrickson Jersey, and going home to be with his family in Sweden. It was a trying time for him,Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey, and his play was noticeably affected by his personal struggle.
He will have a new partner on the bluelineAuthentic Dwayne Allen Jersey,
With the acquisition of Niklas Hjalmarsson from the Chicago Blackhawks, Oliver Ekman-Larsson looks set to bring his statistics back to the level they were previously.
“Hammer” is a left-handed shooting defenseman who has played his entire career with the Blackhawks.
He is a “stay-at-home” defenseman who will complement Ekman-Larsson’s offensive style of play. He can play the right side, and along with OEL will upgrade the Coyotes’ blueline extensively.
Seeing that OEL has had 30 power play goals over the last three seasons, that will help the Coyotes score more often. They were 26th in the NHL last season with a lowly 16.1% power play goal scoring ratio.Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey,
With Hjalmarsson staying back, or feed a forward who may be open near the front of the net. The Coyotes were could only manage 2.3 goals a game,womens Stephon Gilmore Jersey,
That needs to change if they wish to be included in the post-season play, and Hjalmarsson can definitely help in that respect. He is a three-time Cup winner, and knows what it takes to win.womens Drew Brees Jersey, OEL can do his thing and score some more goals, while letting in 3.1 goals a game.
If he can instill that winning culture with the young players in Arizona,Authentic Alex Anzalone Jersey, the Coyotes may be considered a dark horse team to make the playoffs.
The Arizona Coyotes need to keep Oliver Ekman-Larsson around, as he is an elite player in the NHL. That not only includes making him the next captain of the team,womens Alex Anzalone Jersey,womens Trey Hendrickson Jersey, but renewing his contract with a healthy increase.
He currently has two years remaining on his contract with a salary cap hit of $5.5 million. If the team wants to build a winner in the desert,womens Adrian Peterson Jersey, they need OEL to lead the way.
After his trying personal loss last season,womens Dwayne Allen Jersey, he will more than likely come back to play some of his best hockey.
And, he’ll do it all in honor of his mother.
Yes, which means you can take weekly conference call declarations from opposing players with a grain of salt., it's the first week of the regular season
They're usually filled with glowing remarks pumping up an opponent womens Bart Starr Jersey
So,Authentic Darius Slay Jr Jersey, not surprisingly, the Los Angeles Chargers.,, in a conversation with Los Angeles-area reporters on Wednesday,Authentic Jordy Nelson Jersey, Denver Broncos talented edge rusher Von Miller didn't mince words when discussing this week's opponent
"I feel like this Chargers' team is probably the most talented Chargers' team that I've played against in my time in the league,Authentic Randall Cobb Jersey, entering his seventh season with the Broncos. "You've got Keenan Allen. The tight end (Hunter) Henry is coming along and you've got Antonio Gates.,womens Randall Cobb Jersey," said Miller
"You've got two great running backs (Melvin Gordon and Branden Oliver). A solid offensive line with Russell Okung and Joe Barksdale -- (Travis) Benjamin -- All those guys over there are very talented."
Miller said it starts with quarterback Philip Rivers,Authentic J.J. Watt Jersey, who he called a top-three quarterback in the league.
"Sometimes he doesn't even need an offensive line," Miller said. "We're going to have our hands full with this L.A. Chargers' team. It should be a good one.", he can just get the ball and throw it
While Miller gushed over the Bolts, the reality is the Chargers haven't won in Denver since 2013, led by Ryan Mathews' 127 rushing yards., a 27-20 victory in a Thursday night contest on Dec. 12. The Chargers were effective running the ball that game
Miller and the rest of Denver's offense could see a similar approach with new Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn, who led the No. 1-ranked rushing offense during his time with the Buffalo Bills last year.
However,womens Darius Slay Jr Jersey, like Miller,Authentic Bart Starr Jersey, come-from-behind victory over the Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium last year.,Authentic Aaron Rodgers Jersey, new Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said it all starts with Rivers. Joseph should know,womens Aaron Rodgers Jersey, as he served as the defensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins in that team's 31-24
"Schematically you have to be on point,Authentic Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey,,,, because if not he will expose you, he will expose you.," Joseph said about Rivers. "You can't give Philip the same look over and over because again
"So the challenge is to give Philip different looks so we can keep him guessing so he won't cut us up.womens Jordy Nelson Jersey"
Joseph said even though he's hired Mike McCoy as his offensive coordinator, and is instead focused on game planning with defensive coordinator Joe Woods., he did not ask the former Chargers head coach anything about his previous teamwomens J.J. Watt Jersey
"I'm assuming some things are going to change, you can almost begin to start guessing. I don't want our guys to guess. I want them to read their keys and play hard."," Joseph said. "And when you have too much information from a previous regimewomens Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas and Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Cardale Jones were longtime teammates before both entered the NFL in 2016.
In 2011,womens Ryan Ramczyk Jersey, and then they linked up again at Ohio State. , Thomas and Jones played together with Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia
While with the Buckeyes, Jones became a much bigger star. After he started 2014 as the third-string quarterback, and he excelled., injuries created a chance for Jones to start in the final three games of Ohio State's national championship run
Meanwhile,womens Dont'a Hightower Jersey, with Jones and running back Ezekiel Elliott taking the spotlight,Authentic Derek Rivers Jersey, but Jones wasn't surprised to see Thomas make a successful leap to the NFL.,Authentic Antonio Garcia Jersey, Thomas was in the background helping the offense with either production or diversion
"He's always been a big physical guy with strong hands,womens Deatrich Wise Jr. Jersey," Jones said Thursday after the Saints and Chargers held a joint practice. "He always had attributes that he personally wanted to work on, and it's just sweet to see that his hard work and dedication is paying off.", whatever they may be
A second-round pick by the Saints in 2016,137 yards and nine touchdowns. , Thomas had the best rookie receiving performance in franchise history with 92 catches for 1
he had 54 catches for 799 yards and nine touchdowns. He had similar production in 2015 with 56 catches for 781 yards and nine touchdowns.,Thomas became a rare receiver who produced more in an NFL season than in college. As a redshirt sophomore in 2014
Thomas established himself as a go-to option for Jones and the other quarterbacks.,Authentic Dont'a Hightower Jersey,Authentic Donald Trump Jersey,Even though the Buckeyes were a run-focused team
" Jones said.,womens Donald Trump Jersey,womens Derek Rivers Jersey,womens Antonio Garcia Jersey,"He was by far the most reliable not just receiver but teammate that we had as far as the offensive side of the ball
Jones said praised Thomas' "dedication.",Authentic Deatrich Wise Jr. Jersey,Authentic Marshon Lattimore Jersey,Asked why Thomas was so reliable
The Saints have seen Thomas' passion since they drafted him in the second round last year,womens Marshon Lattimore Jersey, Ohio State redshirted Thomas in 2013., but he also displayed it in a unique situation with the Buckeyes. After playing sparingly as a freshman in 2012
" Jones said. "He took it as a complete challenge. ... . He knew he had to get better and made so many improvements to his game overall.",Authentic Ryan Ramczyk Jersey,"Mike's not a guy that pouts or whines about things
The first rule of survival for an NFL cornerback is accepting this bit of rural wisdom: Some days, the bear gets you., you get the bear; other days
“At the end of the day, you’re not going to be perfect,’’ Ronald Darby said after the Eagles’ 38-31 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. “Once you understand that, you can go out there and play freely.’’
Darby, acquired from Buffalo two weeks ago for wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round draft pick, is the Eagles’ most talented cornerback since Asante Samuel. But against the Dolphins, Darby had what he aptly described as “one of those nights.’’
he gave up a 72-yard catch-and-run to DeVante Parker that set up Miami’s first touchdown.,On the Dolphins’ third possession
he got beaten by Jarvis Landry for a 17-yard completion that would have been a lot longer if Jay Cutler’s throw had been more accurate.,Later in the first quarter
Then, three plays later, Darby drew a 42-yard, pass-interference penalty in the end zone after getting beaten on a double move by Kenny Stills.
Now, really good wideouts who combined for 192 receptions, it needs to be mentioned that Parker, Landry and Stills aren’t Moe, 2,Authentic Cooper Kupp Jersey, Larry and Curly. They’re all really,606 yards and 17 touchdowns last season and were a big reason the Dolphins qualified for the playoffs for just the second time in 15 years.
It also needs to be mentioned that this was a preseason game and that Darby still is in the getting-to-know-you stage with coordinator Jim Schwartz’s defense.
’’ he said. “Like where my help’s at and things like that. But I feel I’ve picked up a tremendous amount already.’’,Authentic John Johnson Jersey,“There’s still a little bit more that I need to know
don’t despair. Darby certainly won’t.,So,Authentic Cordrea Tankersley Jersey
“Some nights,Authentic Josh Reynolds Jersey, everything goes your way,’ he said. “Some nights, everything doesn’t. I’d rather it happen now than when it really counts. Make mistakes now rather than during the season. Go back and learn from it and make sure you continue to work.’’
On Cutler’s long completion down the sideline to Parker,womens Samson Ebukam Jersey, Darby actually had him covered very well. It was a 50/50 ball on which the 6-foot-3 Parker,
“It was one-on-one,Authentic James White Jersey, critique myself and make sure it doesn’t happen again.’’,’’ Darby said. “I felt [the ball] coming. I stayed straight. I should’ve leaned into him a little more. That’s a mistake I made. It was a good throw and catch. I’m going to watch the film
Stills beat Darby on a stop route.,On the pass-interference penalty
I’m telling myself,“It was a double move,’’ Darby said. Authentic Charles Harris Jersey,’“He kind of got a step on me. As I’m running, when I catch up to him, I’m just going to take him hard.
I looked back and saw the ball was a little further inside. So I tried to reach around him and make a play on the ball.’’womens James White Jersey, who has a four-inch height advantage on Darby, just outjumped him.,“When I caught up to him
Darby was the NFL’s defensive rookie of the year. Pro Football Focus rated him as the fourth-best corner in the league in 2015.,Two years ago
his play slipped a bit. He knows it better than anybody else and is determined to raise his game back up this season.,Last year
In Buffalo, Darby played second-fiddle to the Bills’ other corner, Stephon Gilmore, who signed with New England in the off-season.
With the Eagles, Darby will be the No. 1 corner. Second-year man Jalen Mills, ,Authentic Raekwon McMillan Jerseywho is expected to start on the other side, will be the Captain to his Tennille.
but Darby made no secret Thursday night that he hopes Schwartz lets him follow the other team’s best receiver.,Schwartz hasn’t said yet whether Darby and Mills will play sides or whether Darby will shadow the opponent’s top wideout all over the field. It likely will be a week-to-week decision
’’ you need to cover the best wideout,womens Cooper Kupp Jersey,“If you want to get that label as a lock-down corner, then yeah,womens John Johnson Jersey,womens Josh Reynolds Jersey, he said. “I’m not afraid to lose battles. At the end of the day, my goal is to win more than I lose.’’
there still is a great deal of uncertainty at cornerback beyond Darby and Mills.,Authentic Samson Ebukam Jersey,womens Charles Harris Jersey,With cutdown day just eight days away
It remains to be seen who will be the Week 1 slot corner. Will it be Ron Brooks,womens Raekwon McMillan Jersey, or Patrick Robinson? Both played pretty well against the Dolphins. Robinson, who started in the slot,, had a nice pass breakup on a deep ball to Landry on Miami’s first possession.womens Cordrea Tankersley Jersey
Philadelphia finalized a trade that sent wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick to Buffalo in exchange for Darby on Aug. 11, and six days later, Darby grabbed an intercept in a win over the Bills and broke up another pass; he was a star of the Eagles' second preseason game.,Authentic Kawann Short Jersey, the speedy cornerback provided the jolt to the secondary the Eagles were looking for. Playing against his former team
And in third exhibition Thursday night, things unfolded in the opposite manner.
On a play that went wrong Thursday night,womens Greg Olsen Jersey, Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby guessed right.
He ran stride-for-stride with Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker down the sideline in the first quarter of the Birds' 38-31 preseason win over Miami and had a hunch that quarterback Jay Cutler was going to throw his way.
"My instincts told me,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, like,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey,'" Darby said in the locker room after the game., 'All right,womens Andy Dalton Jersey, they're about to take a shot
So Darby abandoned his sprinting stance, turned to look for the ball and leapt. The pass came, and Parker used his 6-foot-3 frame to ascend past the 5-foot-11 Darby to snag an acrobatic catch that he took 72 yards down to the Eagles' 2-yard line., just like the Eagles' cornerback thought it would. But he mistimed his jump
Darby figures he would have made an impressive play instead of an unsightly misstep if he waited a split second longer to jump or even if he could have positioned himself a bit closer to Parker to knock him off balance. It was a tiny margin that separated the gaffe from a potential highlight, Darby said.
That explains why the Eagles' newcomer wasn't sweating the play afterward.Authentic Thomas Davis Sr Jersey, And it's why he said he wouldn't get too wrapped up in a sobering second act with the Birds.
Darby gave up that big play to Parker and let Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills slip past him on another occasion in the first quarter. Darby tried to recover on the play but committed a pass interference penalty that set up a Dolphins touchdown and stood as the another significant miscue for the 23-year-old.
Those swings from success to sloppiness are a part of life in the NFL,womens Thomas Davis Sr Jersey, Darby said. He's accustomed to it.
"You ain't going to be perfect," Darby said. "Nobody's perfect. You just got to have a short memory and continue to work. Like, Week 1, but you just gotta have that short memory.", if I come in and have two picks,womens Kawann Short Jersey, ya'll are going to be coming to me saying something different. It's ups and downs in football
Darby's in a unique spot,Authentic Greg Olsen Jersey, coaches and a championship-starved fan base that's grown impatient with the Eagles' long-standing woes at cornerback., though. He arrived in a new home midway through training camp and still wants to impress teammates
For Darby,womens Walter Payton Jersey,womens Jordan Howard Jersey, struggles in a preseason game might mean more than they do for other starters across the league entrenched on their teams.
But the third-year veteran said he wouldn't have a problem moving past the sting of his missed opportunities from Thursday night.Authentic A.J. Green Jersey,
"If this was my first year,Authentic Andy Dalton Jersey, I would have been really, really beating myself down,womens A.J. Green Jersey," Darby said. "But I had worse nights than this before. Like, you just gotta keep working.", horrible nights. Then I came back the next week and had two picks, so you know
The Eagles brought Darby in to shore up their weakest position group, and he's still in position to assume that task, he said his focus is squared on a Sept. 10 opener against Washington., even after a rocky showing against the Dolphins. So
"At the end of the day, "that's when it counts."," he said
James Bradberry get nod for training camp MVPs,womens Chidobe Awuzie Jersey,Christian McCaffrey
the Carolina Panthers' training camp buzz was about more than just Cam Newton's surgically-repaired shoulder.,Authentic Ryan Switzer Jersey,Believe it or not
the Wofford College portion of camp began on July 26 and ended on Sunday with questions lingering on whether the 2015 NFL MVP would be ready for the Sept. 10 opener.,womens Xavier Woods Jersey,True
That Newton didn’t throw in team drills for 14 days before participating in red-zone drills on Sunday fueled that.womens Ryan Switzer Jersey,
But in between waiting for Newton to throw,womens Garett Bolles Jersey, a lot of players had big moments. With that, here are my offensive and defensive MVPs of the 2017 camp:
If you didn’t notice, first-round draft pick Christian McCaffrey received a lot of hype and headlines during camp -- and justifiably so. The former Stanford running back/receiver was just as dynamic as he was billed. And from Day 1 he was a crowd favorite, getting cheers for things he would tell you are routine. But watching McCaffrey juke out Pro Bowl linebackers Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis left most going, “Wow!" -- including Kuechly and Davis. Wide receivers coach Lance Taylor,Authentic Chidobe Awuzie Jersey,Authentic Jourdan Lewis Jersey, who coached McCaffrey at Stanford the past three years,womens Jourdan Lewis Jersey,had players and coaches come up to him almost every day acknowledging McCaffrey was everything he told them he would be before the Panthers selected him with the eighth overall pick.Authentic Garett Bolles Jersey
McCaffrey lined up at tailback in the I-formation,Authentic Xavier Woods Jersey next to the quarterback in the shotgun, as a slot receiver,Authentic Carlos Henderson Jersey, a wide receiver and behind the center in the wildcat formation. He had an occasional drop but for the most part he was spectacular. Even coach Ron Rivera said the 5-foot-11, 205-pound dynamo was ahead of where most rookies are. And we haven’t even talked about what McCaffrey will contribute as a return specialist.
The word special was used about McCaffrey arguably more than any rookie in Carolina history. This quote from starting running back Jonathan Stewart said it all: “He’s pretty unstoppable as far as coming out of the backfield and running routes. I can tell you now there’s not going to be anybody in this league that can cover him one-on-one. He’s a special player.",,Authentic Demarcus Walker Jersey,
earning nicknames like the "real deal" and "quiet assassin" from teammates.,womens Carlos Henderson Jersey, His one-handed pick near the goal line that he ran all the way to the opposite goal line in Saturday’s final practice in pads showed he is ready for the spotlight.,Forget that wide receiver Devin Funchess on Sunday made a spectacular catch over cornerback James Bradberry in the corner of the end zone. Bradberry had one of those camps that made No. 24 look like the former player that wore that number. Bradberry still has to prove during a full season he can play to the Pro Bowl level Josh Norman did in 2015. But the second-year player seemingly made a big play every day in practice
Daryl Worley, who plays opposite Bradberry, also had a solid camp and made a lot of big plays.,womens Demarcus Walker Jersey Bradberry just made a few more and showed with his shutdown ability that the front seven -- which could be the best in the NFL -- can play without worry of having to cover for mistakes like it did a year ago.

This offseason, and when he was younger, the Panthers’ secondary depth – or lack thereof – has been oft-criticized,womens Sean Mannion Jersey, Captain Munnerlyn would have heard that chatter.
But as a nine-year veteran in his second stint with Carolina (Munnerlyn was drafted by the Panthers in 2009 and played for them until 2013),womens Laremy Tunsil Jersey, that isn’t the case.
keep the clock ticking.”,“Back in my younger days,womens Xavien Howard Jersey, ‘Man,womens Kenyan Drake Jersey, I used to be reading everything like,’” Munnerlyn said. “But now I don’t read into it. I just try to keep rolling
Munnerlyn and the rest of Carolina’s starting secondary – including cornerbacks Daryl Worley and James Bradberry,Authentic Chandler Jones Jersey, and their message was one and the same. The media can say and write what it wants about their unit, as well as safeties Mike Adams and Kurt Coleman – spoke at the Charlotte Touchdown Club’s Panthers’ Kick Off Luncheon on Friday,womens John Brown Jersey, but they aren’t paying attention.
so I think you just have to blur that out.”,Authentic Brandon Doughty Jersey,“I’m gonna be honest,” Coleman said. “A lot of the things that you guys may hear or say, I don’t read too much of the media, it has no bearing on what I want or what the front office wants. It’s just kind of hearsay
That criticism originated last offseason, $75 million dollar deal with Washington that made him the NFL’s highest paid cornerback., when the Panthers put the franchise tag on All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman. Then, the Panthers rescinded that tag, making Norman a free agent. Weeks later, he signed a five-year
There was no realistic way for the Panthers to replace Norman, Worley in the third round out of West Virginia,Authentic Sean Mannion Jersey, but they attempted to do so via the draft. They added Bradberry in the second round out of Samford,Authentic Laremy Tunsil Jersey, and Zack Sanchez in the fifth round out of Oklahoma (Sanchez was waived/injured Friday with a groin injury suffered in Thursday’s preseason finale).
The results were,Authentic Xavien Howard Jersey, they’ll have an opportunity to show what a difference a year in Carolina’s system makes.,Authentic Kenyan Drake Jersey, as expected,womens Brandon Doughty Jersey mixed. While both Bradberry and Worley showed flashes of excellence, especially down the stretch, both struggled with rookie mistakes. Now in their second seasons
But behind them, acquired in a trade with Buffalo for receiver Kaelin Clay on Saturday, that once-questionable depth got even slimmer. The Panthers waived/injured Sanchez and put fellow backup corner Teddy Williams on injured reserve on Friday. Corn Elder (out with a knee injury) was put on injured reserve Sunday. Undrafted rookie free agent Cole Luke (who was burned for a deep touchdown Thursday) and Kevon Seymour, are the backups at the corner.
behind them.,At safety, with veteran Colin Jones and undrafted rookie safety Demetrious Cox, ,womens Chandler Jones Jersey,Coleman and Adams are secure in their starting roles, claimed off waivers Sunday
There have been a number of new imports this cut weekend, Authentic John Brown Jersey,but for now the guys in the locker room are the guys, and they’re motivated to prove their doubters wrong.
“Honestly, everyone’s going to have their opinion,” Worley said. “We’ve just got to go our there and do our jobs.”

Positional distinctions are disappearing. Rushing yards are losing meaning. And offensive and defensive schemes are shifting from game to game?—?if not drive to drive. The most popular sport in America is changing faster than it ever has before?—?yet the way we talk about the game has largely stayed the same. It’s time for the conversation to catch up to the shifting concepts redefining front offices and gameplay nationwide. So welcome to The Ringer’s You Don’t Know Football Week, where we’ll explore and attempt to better understand the evolutions already occurring on the gridiron?—?and the reboots we’d like to see make their way to the game next.
he was a 205-pound linebacker who projected to the NFL as safety,Jabrill Peppers was a trial balloon for the modern NFL. The league is supposed to be more accepting of hybrid players who can play multiple positions thanks to coaches who are supposed to be getting more creative. At Michigan, a position he played earlier in his college career. But he also had experience playing running back and returning kicks. Oh, Peppers was the über-athlete; he played snaps at 11 different positions. In his final college season, and he could play corner, too.
where positional designations mean less and less every year,If the NFL is truly going the way of basketball,Authentic Quinten Rollins Jersey, then Peppers should’ve been a top prospect. And Cleveland’s decision to take him with the 25th overall pick seemed to suggest as much.
Except,Authentic Ty Montgomery Jersey, Peppers himself would beg to differ. He does not think NFL evaluators did a particularly good job with him.
“The one thing everyone loved about me in college hurt me at the next level,womens Brett Hundley Jersey,” Peppers told me of his versatility.
When I suggested to Peppers that coaches and GMs must’ve loved his ability to play across the field, he immediately pushed back.
Peppers told me,Authentic Braxton Miller Jersey,He said that “88 percent” of teams hammered him for playing too many positions in his college career and not playing his eventual NFL position—safety—enough. (For his part, went like this: “They said,Authentic Tyler Ervin Jersey, ‘You do everything. You’re here, Peppers said he doesn’t regret where he played because his Wolverines won a lot of games during his tenure.) A typical conversation with teams during predraft meetings,womens Kevin Johnson Jersey, you’re here, you’re here. We’re going to play you at one position. How can we be sure that you’re going to master this position?’”
” Peppers said. Without any classes to attend or strict limits on practice time,“My response was: ‘Everything I do now is just sheer athleticism.’ I didn’t really have the privilege to just keep ironing and sharpening my craft at one position, Peppers told coaches he’d master whatever position they asked him to play.
” Peppers said. “I didn’t really try to defend myself,“If I can do all of these things at a high level and you don’t think I can do one thing at a high level, it’s like—if you didn’t think I could play a certain position, it just did not add up to me, don’t draft me. I didn’t say that,womens Quinten Rollins Jersey but that’s how I was feeling.”,womens Ty Montgomery Jersey,
Positional flexibility is generally a positive in the NFL. Bill Belichick has long valued the defensive back who can play safety or corner. Guards who can play tackle and vice versa usually have longer careers than one-trick linemen. But Peppers suggests that,Authentic Brett Hundley Jersey,Authentic Nick Martin Jersey, your flexibility can reach a point of diminishing returns. If you’re doing too many things, at least right nowthen teams will worry you can’t do enough things well. Given how he said NFL teams reacted to his collegiate positioning,womens Braxton Miller Jersey Peppers is worried his experience will give pause to the next generation of flexible defenders whose coaches ask them to perform multiple roles.
” Peppers said of amateur players who play multiple positions. ,womens Nick Martin Jersey, “I feel like now people are going to shy away from it, based off of what I went through. They’ll praise you in college for it and when it’s time to get to the next level,Authentic Kevin Johnson Jersey,“I kind of felt it sent a bad message to kids going to college, all these doubts seem to circulate. [Evaluators] seemed to flip-flop.”
Remember, he was the one who brought all of this up.,womens Tyler Ervin Jersey,
When asked early in the week which young Bears players he was eager to watch in Thursday night’s preseason opener, Akiem Hicks mentioned two high 2016 draft picks.
” said the veteran defensive end. “I want to see ‘Bull’ (Jonathan Bullard) get off and I want to see [Leonard] Floyd. I’m selfishly looking at our defense,“I’m still looking at the same two guys I looked at last year, right? But those are the guys I look to get a lot out of going into this game.”
Hicks no doubt was pleased with what he witnessed Thursday night against the Broncos. On Denver’s very first play from scrimmage, Floyd pressured Siemian into a third-down incompletion, Floyd blew past right tackle Menelik Watson and sacked quarterback Trevor Siemian. Later on the drive, forcing the Broncos to settle for a field goal.
“It was a good start,” Floyd said. “Got to watch the film,Authentic Vernon Butler Jersey, but there’s still some errors I made,Authentic James Bradberry Jersey, go in and practice and just get better. Keep chopping wood.”
That type of attitude should serve Floyd well as he looks to build on a productive rookie season. Last year the ninth overall pick in the draft recorded seven sacks in 12 games, scored a touchdown on a strip/sack of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and generated a safety with a sack of 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert.
“He’s hungry,womens Daryl Worley Jersey, ands or buts about it. Leonard Floyd wants to be great. He wants to do all the little things that it takes to be great. He has all the ability to be great,Authentic Devin Funchess Jersey,” outside linebacker Sam Acho said of Floyd. “He just wants to be great. There’s no ifs,womens Leonard Floyd Jersey, and we’re pushing him. He’s pushing me,womens Cody Whitehair Jersey, he’s making me better and I’m trying to make him better.”
forcing the Broncos to punt. Selected by the Bears in the third round of last year’s draft out of Florida,Bullard produced an impact play early in the second quarter Thursday night when he dropped running back Stevan Ridley for a three-yard loss on third-and-one, Bullard appears to have made major strides since an underwhelming rookie season.
“He’s definitely stronger and faster, whoever he’s playing against,” Hicks said. “He was already explosive. He has picked up the game to a point where he can play within the scheme now and see things come and be able to predict the play in order to get a step on the guard or tackle, just the things that come with getting more reps.”
Hicks no doubt was pleased with what he witnessed Thursday night against the Broncos.womens Shaq Thompson Jersey, On Denver’s very first play from scrimmage, Floyd pressured Siemian into a third-down incompletion, Floyd blew past right tackle Menelik Watson and sacked quarterback Trevor Siemian. Later on the drive,womens Vernon Butler Jersey,womens James Bradberry Jersey, forcing the Broncos to settle for a field goal.
“It was a good start,Authentic Daryl Worley Jersey,Authentic Shaq Thompson Jersey,” Floyd said. “Got to watch the film,womens Devin Funchess Jersey, but there’s still some errors I made, go in and practice and just get better. Keep chopping wood.”
That type of attitude should serve Floyd well as he looks to build on a productive rookie season. Last year the ninth overall pick in the draft recorded seven sacks in 12 games,Authentic Leonard Floyd Jersey,Authentic Cody Whitehair Jersey, scored a touchdown on a strip/sack of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and generated a safety with a sack of 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

Falcons rookie linebacker Duke Riley will start at weakside linebacker in the team’s base defense in the season opener against the Chicago Bears at 1 p.m. Sunday.
either. ,Riley doesn't plan to be nervous
"Butterflies are like a common effect, but that means you’re ready, Riley said. "I’m not nervous about playing football. I’ve been playing every day of my life. I’m pretty sure there will be butterflies before every game. If there’s not, something’s wrong."
who started at weakside linebacker last season. ,The Falcons have made a concerted effort to better cover running backs and tight ends in the pass defense. The speedy Riley is taking over for De'Vondre Campbell
Campbell was moved to strongside linebacker and also will play in the nickel in a rotation with Deion Jones and Riley.
"I’m just going to take it like I take every day," Riley said. "Focus on controlling what I can control, and then just move forward."
Riley's path to the starting lineup was clear.,Veteran LaRoy Reynolds started the first two exhibition games at weakside linebacker. After he suffered a torn pectoral muscle and was placed on injured reserve
” Quinn said. "He’s going to play a lot. He’s going to start at (weakside) linebacker in the base package. He’s going to be active in the nickel package as well.”,“Duke is somebody who has impressed us right from the beginning
Campbell and strong safety Keanu Neal. ,The Falcon started three rookies on defense last season in Jones
first-round pick Takkarist McKinley also will play right defensive end some in the team's nickel defense. ,Authentic Jalen Collins Jersey,In addition to Riley
Quinn credited his staff with getting the young players ready to play.
“One, you have to have belief in them,Authentic Ronnie Stanley Jersey,"Quinn said. "It was going to be earned, not given. So the reps had to be earned and they have to go through the trial of OTAs, then the next test at training camp and then the preseason games. It had to be earned.”
his old LSU teammate.,womens Breshad Perriman Jersey,Riley had some help getting ready from Jones
"Just take it one day at a time," Jones said of his advice for Riley. "Don’t rush and capitalize on everything you can. For instance,Authentic Breshad Perriman Jersey, recovery, study, take your time and enjoy the season because it’s going to be a long one."
The Falcons’ linebackers will have a tough assignment against the Bears' run-oriented attack that features running back Jordan Howard. He runs behind the interior line of guards Kyle Long (three Pro Bowls) and Josh Sitton (three Pro Bowls) and center Cody Whitehair (NFL All-Rookie team last year).
"They’re a really good run team, a real aggressive team, and you just have to lock into our game plan and stay with our fits and play fast and physical," Jones said. "They do a real good job up front of creating creases for the running back, and he hits it hard. He’s a big, physical guy and we’ve just got to get him on the ground."
Riley believes he's ready for his first NFL start.womens Carl Davis Jersey,
"The practice style here, it’s a faster practice and pace," Riley said. "There’s so much in tendencies and learning their positions and the plays that can be run out of positions, stuff that I didn’t learn in college and high school."womens Kamalei Correa Jersey,
Campbell and free safety Ricardo Allen have been helping Riley. ,In addition to Jones
"Riley said. ,"That’s one of the main things we do around here,womens Bronson Kaufusi Jersey,
In addition to Riley, the defense will receive a boost from the return of cornerback Desmond Trufant, who missed the final 10 games, including the Super Bowl, with a torn pectoral muscle.
He’s set to return to his left cornerback spot.Authentic Carl Davis Jersey,
"It’s definitely exciting just to get back out there, get back to doing what I love,” Authentic Maxx Williams Jersey,Trufant said. “Can’t wait, and it will be a big week for us.”
Trufant tried to help out where he could after the injury. He turned into an extra secondary coach for Robert Alford and the rest of the cornerbacks.
"Obviously,womens Jalen Collins Jersey,you want to be out there,” Trufant said. “That’s what you work for,Authentic Bronson Kaufusi Jersey what you put the work in for every daybut it wasn’t my time at that time. So, to go out there and play,womens Maxx Williams Jersey, I moved past it, and I’m looking forward to this year."
With the additions of Riley,,womens Ronnie Stanley Jersey,McKinley, free-agent defensive tackle Dontari Poe and the return of Trufant, Allen believes the defense will be much-improved.
“I’m not giving any predictions that we will make it back to the Super Bowl this year," Allen said. "I’m just saying that the way that this team has developed, the way that it has pushed itself, we are a better team than we were last year. If we made to the Super Bowl last year, I think we have a pretty good chance of making it pretty far this year.
"I’m not saying that we might make it to the Super Bowl. I’ve got to clear that up."Authentic Kamalei Correa Jersey,
For all the early excitement brought by the arrivals of rookies Mitch Trubisky and Tarik Cohen, it’s hard not to feel a bit letdown after the Bears’ final cuts of the preseason Saturday.
The quarterback position has been upgraded if for no other reason than Trubisky is the man of the future the Bears have lacked for years, and Mike Glennon is an upgrade over Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley.
Running back feels good with Jordan Howard ready to anchor the offense in his second season and a change-of-pace option in Cohen provides the Bears an option they haven’t had in a while.
too, with the arrival of free agent Dion Sims and return to health of Zach Miller,Authentic Shon Coleman Jersey,The tight end spot is better,Authentic Danny Shelton Jersey, but it’s still not exciting and second-round pick Adam Shaheen is a lot farther away from contributing than we were led to believe.
veteran free agents Victor Cruz,Authentic Cameron Erving Jersey, Rueben Randle and Jaye Howard,womens Nate Orchard Jersey,Over the summer and early in Bourbonnais, undrafted rookie free agent Tanner Gentry and a return to health from Lamarr Houston offered great promise.
Now all are gone.
Wide receiver is a big disappointment with a lackluster performance from Kevin White,Authentic Xavier Cooper Jersey, season-ending injuries to Cameron Meredith and Randle. Markus Wheaton missed most of the action most in training camp.
While the special teams contributions of Josh Bellamy and Deonte Thompson are easy to envision, keeping both of them over Gentry at receiver is disappointing.
Throughout the offseason it looked like the offensive line would be one of the strengths of these Bears,womens Jaylon Smith Jersey, but a much slower than hoped for rehabilitation from offseason ankle surgery for Kyle Long and a season-ending injury to his backup Eric Kush has left the line in flux.
as has Hroniss Grasu, and when neither impressed,Journeyman tackle Tom Compton has been given time at Long’s left guard spot, Cody Whitehair slid over with Grasu going in at center.
Whitehair didn’t transition to guard nearly as well as he did to center last year and Grasu didn’t impress over the ball,Unfortunately, either.
because when he is ready, the O-line can still be a strength,The most important question is when will we see Long, albeit a dangerously thin one.
this group is only set at right guard and right tackle with Josh Sitton and Bobby Massie,Until Long gets back,womens Shon Coleman Jersey,womens Danny Shelton Jersey,womens Cameron Erving Jersey, and we hope at center with Whitehair.
The loss of long snapper Patrick Scales to an ACL injury is disappointing,Authentic Nate Orchard Jersey,Authentic Duke Johnson Jersey, and the peek at Roberto Aguayo was a waste of just under half a million bucks leaving the uninspiring Connor Barth at placekicker.
The defensive front was looking much improved with the arrival of Jaye Howard,womens Duke Johnson Jersey,womens Xavier Cooper Jersey, return to health of Eddie Goldman and dramatic improvements from Johnathan Bullard and Roy Robertson-Harris.
the release of Howard is a bit of a surprise,Authentic Jaylon Smith Jersey,But with Bullard and Mitch Unrein banged up the last couple of weeks, and Goldman has to show up a lot more than he has.
Linebacker is better because Leonard Floyd is much improved and Danny Trevathan will be back soon, but how much to expect from Pernell McPhee is a huge question. That makes the failure of Houston to make it all the way back that much more disappointing.
but Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper have both been wounded and limited at times,The talent in the secondary appears to be upgraded and rookie safety Eddie Jackson shows promise, and Quintin Demps’ play has been uneven.
Kyle Fuller had the best training camp of any Bears defensive back, so how improved is this group?
it’s clear there will be a few more changes to the team’s 53-man roster,With only five wide receivers -–realistically only three you’d want on the field – and five tight ends plus a fullback currently, most likely prior to the opener against Atlanta.
That’s a good thing. Because for the moment, this group leaves you feeling a little flat at best.
Defensive lineman Jaye Howard hasn’t been with the Bears for long, but long enough to see just how good nose tackle Eddie Goldman can be.
“I didn’t know him until I got here,Authentic T. J. Logan Jersey,” Howard said. “But by playing alongside Dontari Poe [the two-time Pro Bowl nose tackle with the Chiefs],Authentic Takkarist McKinley Jersey, you’ve got something.”, I can definitely see he can be in that same caliber — especially with the pass rush. They’re both big guys who can move well and disrupt the quarterback. Any time you can get that from the nose
Finally healthy after missing 10 games last season with a high ankle sprain,womens Duke Riley Jersey, Goldman is re-establishing himself as the centerpiece of a 3-4 defensive line that spearheaded a stout defense in the first two preseason games. The Bears’ first- and second-team defense allowed 40 rushing yards on 15 carries (2.7-yard average) in the first half against the Broncos in the opener and 17 yards on nine carries (1.9 average) against the Cardinals on Saturday night.
“I feel good,Authentic C.J. Mosley Jersey,” Goldman said. “Just moving around. The defense is playing great. We’ve got a sense of urgency.”
After spending most of last season rehabilitating his injured ankle — even after he returned from the original injury,Authentic Marlon Humphrey Jersey, he missed four of the final eight games — Goldman is happy to be back in a groove through two preseason games. But this is just a start for the 2015 second-round pick from Florida State. He can’t wait for Sunday’s game against the Titans in Nashville.
“I’ve still got some improvements to make, because I had a couple of missed assignments. I’m going to try to perfect those in practice and try to do better against the Titans.”,womens Tyus Bowser Jersey,” he said. “I’m eager to play in this next game
Already, Howard and second-year end Jonathan Bullard started and were effective in their place. , the depth on the line appears improved. With ends Akiem Hicks and Mitch Unrein sitting out with injuries
“The D-line is definitely jelling,” Howard said. “We’ve got some key guys out right now. When we get those guys back, especially if we can all stay healthy. The key is staying healthy.”, it could be scary
In the second half Saturday,womens T. J. Logan Jersey,womens Takkarist McKinley Jersey, reserve end Roy Robertson-Harris had two sacks in an impressive performance. He missed last season after an illness in training camp and was moved from outside linebacker to defensive end.
“I feel like we’re deeper at that position than we were this time a year ago,Authentic Duke Riley Jersey,Authentic Sean Harlow Jersey,” coach John Fox said.
Bullard continued his emergence as a playmaker. He combined with Howard to stop David Johnson in the backfield on the Cardinals’ second play of the game,womens Sean Harlow Jersey, added a quarterback hit on Carson Palmer and stopped Chris Johnson for no gain on a third-and-goal play at the 1-yard line.
“You can see he’s more comfortable in the scheme,womens C.J. Mosley Jersey,womens Marlon Humphrey Jersey, ‘Just keep building and stacking those plays. Remember the success you’ve had and bring it to the next play.’ He’s been doing that. He’s definitely cutting it loose.”,Authentic Tyus Bowser Jersey,Authentic Chris Wormley Jersey,” Howard said. “He’s going out there and just playing. You can see his get-off popping on tape. I told him the other day
Howard himself is a wild card. He’s still working his way back from offseason hip surgery. But he likes where he’s headed.
“It’s slowly starting to come back,womens Chris Wormley Jersey,” he said. “I’m used to being a dominant player on the field, so right now it’s just continuing to take it step by step, ‘OK, practice by practice. But I definitely can see it coming. There are flashes where I’m like, I’m ready to go.’ I’ve just got to keep building off those flashes.”
The Minnesota Vikings renovated an offensive line that sputtered through last season, seeking better balance with their potentially dominant defense.
The Detroit Lions brought in new blockers,womens Laken Tomlinson Jersey, too,womens Kenny Clark Jersey, aiming to revive a dormant ground game and give franchise cornerstone Matthew Stafford more support.
The Chicago Bears traded up for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with the second pick in the draft,womens Jason Spriggs Jersey, solidifying a long-range strategy.
Ambitions and hopes are high,womens Kyler Fackrell Jersey, at this time of the year. The long-term NFL optimism around the Great Lakes states inevitably took a bit of a hit on Aug. 3, of course,womens Damarious Randall Jersey, though when Aaron Rodgers made clear his disinterest in retirement or departure from the Green Bay Packers anytime soon.
Sigh.,womens Quinten Rollins Jersey,
The NFC North competition sure can't count on a reprieve from these twice-annual matchups against one of the league's best.
Asked if he could envision playing as long as Tom Brady has with the New England Patriots, on the day one of his few peers in the league turned 40,Authentic Brett Hundley Jersey, Rodgers left no doubt.
"I do think it's realistic, who will be 34 on Dec. 2. "I hope it's in this locker room," said Rodgers,Authentic Damarious Randall Jersey, though. That would mean it's been at a high level."
Engineering an eighth straight playoff appearance for the Packers last season, including a fifth division title in that span, Rodgers produced a vintage run of dominance following a 4-6 start by the team that was marked by some rather ordinary performances by his elite standard.
He threw 21 touchdown passes, with one interception, to lead the Packers to eight straight victories until falling to the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC championship game.
"I still feel pretty young," Rodgers said after that game.Authentic Laken Tomlinson Jersey, "I think I have a number of years left in me."
Here are some of the headlines around the division as September approaches:Authentic Jason Spriggs Jersey,
STACKING THE SECONDARY: Only one team in the NFL allowed more passing yards last season than the Packers. Only two teams gave up more touchdowns through the air. The priority for 2017, was obvious. Cornerback Kevin King and safety Josh Jones were their first two draft picks,Authentic Kenny Clark Jersey, thus, and cornerback Davon House returned as a free agent following a two-year stay in Jacksonville.
The goal was to build a bigger and stronger secondary,Authentic Kyler Fackrell Jersey, with hands-on,hard-press coverage at the line of scrimmage considered these days a defense's best weapon for disruption of an opponent's passing attack.
With starting cornerbacks Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins each entering their third seasons and fourth-year safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance,Authentic Quinten Rollins Jerseythere's plenty of potential for this group to improve.
BRADFORD PROTECTION PROGRAM: After surpassing the Packers in 2015 to finish 11-5 for the division title and starting last season 5-0, the Vikings careened off-track because of some uncharacteristic lapses by the defense at critical moments,womens Ty Montgomery Jersey,struggles by since-cut kicker Blair Walsh and a litany of injuries along the offensive line.
Even when fully healthy, but Sam Bradford too often had to settle for a menu of quick, there were questions about the protection, short throws to evade the pass rush. The running game was no help. Given time,,Authentic Ty Montgomery Jersey, Bradford proved his accuracy .
But he took a career-most 37 sacks, let alone return to the playoffs. womens Brett Hundley Jersey, They signed two new tackles, a trend that can't continue if the Vikings are going to keep him healthy, Riley Reiff (Detroit) and Mike Remmers (Carolina), to try to bolster the front.
Bengals mix and match on defense
One of the many reasons the Bengals love red-shirt rookie cornerback William Jackson and believe he’ll be an elite
he has yet to take

” Jackson said. “I just have to face reality. They’ll work me in. It’s
,womens Duke Riley Jersey,“We all know rookies don’t start here
though.”,womens Sean Harlow Jersey,enough of a blessing to get in there and compete
head coach Marvin Lewis started at least one rookie in 12 straight openers in a streak that ended in
,Authentic C.J. Mosley Jersey,Not so fast. OK
2014 with center Russell Bodine. He hasn’t started one in the last two. And maybe,womens C.J. Mosley Jersey, fourth-year cornerback
, just maybe
Darqueze Dennard, another first-rounder derailed by injury, is going to get his first NFL Opening Day start. Plus,
Jackson technically isn’t a rookie.
But defensive coordinator Paul Gunther is guaranteeing that whoever is active of his 23 players (and that could be
they’re going to play.,everybody but injured starting safety Shawn Williams and newest Bengal Ringo)
Dennard slid into the slot
,Just look at what Lewis did in the pre-season games. With cornerback Adam Jones suspended
with Jackson playing outside when teams went multiple receivers early in games. The Ravens might not be so inclined to
but Jackson figures to play plenty

‘We could do a lot of different combinations, because
, and it’s really important for the first couple of games
they’re not used to playing as many snaps,womens Budda Baker Jersey,
Guenther said. “I anticipate using every guy that’s dressed on defense
Some of that is necessity. Starting safety George Iloka (knee) didn’t play in any pre-season games and although he’s ,Authentic Takkarist McKinley Jersey,”
been back to practice for about three weeks and says he has the fresh legs of a rookie, he’s still getting into game
But mostly Guenther plans to play multiple guys because he can. The Bengals defense looks a lot different this year
because you don’t know where to look. Guenther is vowing to use different packages on virtually every snap to match the
Ravens’ offense to the fullest.
” Guenther said. “What I always like to do is,Authentic Duke Riley Jersey,“Last year we had a lot of the same type of guys,Authentic Sean Harlow Jersey, ‘This guy can do
’ and that way it allows you when you see a mismatch here I can,this good or this guy can do that good, ‘All right let
’s put him on that guy.’”
He already had some versatility in the back end with Dennard playing corner and slot and Josh Shaw playing both corner
spots along with safety.
But when they drafted third-rounder Jordan Willis, they also got a left end and a right end. Fourth-rounder Carl Lawson
gives them a rush end as well as a linebacker. Plus, sixth-rounder Jordan Evans is so fast Guenther can put him in
against the run or the pass at linebacker. And that in turn frees up starting linebacker Vincent Rey to play more on
special teams and …
You get the idea. Anybody could be anywhere. One move can lead to another one. The emergence of Lawson and Willis on the
edge have allowed Guenther to move veteran ends Michael Johnson and Chris Smith into tackle on passing downs and it
appears that both of their careers have been revived.
maybe he plays in base, we mix and match them that way,“Maybe a guy plays in nickel, much like we’re going to do the
corners and safeties,” Guenther said.Authentic Chad Williams Jersey,
He confirms he plans to play the very intriguing Evans in base (run situations) as he tries to ease the absence of the ,womens Takkarist McKinley Jersey,

“It’s not too big for him. He’s got good coverage skills,” Guenther said of Evans. “I don’t know why he wasn’t
invited to the combine,Authentic Budda Baker Jersey,womens Dorian Johnson Jersey,because to me when you watch him at Oklahoma his coverage skills were as good as anybody that’s
why we liked him.
Second year Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd has been turning heads in training camp. His preseason play is the continuation of a strong second half last season after star wideout AJ Green went down for an extended period of time.
came in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers when he hauled in six receptions on eight targets. His 78 yards were one shy of his season-high.,Boyd quietly caught 54 passes as a rookie, arguably, totaling 600 yards and one touchdown. His best game
Boyd entered training camp as the Bengals No. 3 wideout, who covers Cincinnati for Cox Media Group, the team’s top slot receiver. It was believed he could push veteran Brandon LaFell to line up opposite of Green,Authentic Haason Reddick Jersey, as Jay Morrison, and primarily,Authentic Budda Baker Jersey, but it appears the coaching staff prefers Boyd in the slot,womens Chad Williams Jersey, says.
” Morrison said. “It seems like he’s always an option—he finds the soft spots in the zones.”,Authentic T. J. Logan Jersey,“I think they keep him in the slot
Boyd averaged more than 11 yards per catch in the slot last year and committed just two dropped passes.
and Morrison indicated it might not matter because the Bengals frequently use three wide receiver sets. He anticipates Boyd being a big part of the team’s offensive scheme this season due to his reliability as a receiver.,womens Takkarist McKinley Jersey,Local media has speculated whether the Clairton native could leapfrog Lafell on the depth chart
“He has got good hands,womens Duke Riley Jersey, and that can lead to a lack of focus and drops. That never happened with Tyler.”,” Morrison said. “Rookies tend to think more than they react
“He knows the offense better, and expect him to be a bigger part of it.”, they trust him
In three preseason games, and his 16.3 yards per catch is tops among all Bengals pass catchers., the Pitt Panther has recorded four receptions for 65 yards
and he has a great rapport with the quarterback.,Morrison added Boyd’s locker is right next to Andy Dalton’s
Also of note,womens Haason Reddick Jersey,womens Budda Baker Jersey, further cementing Boyd’s status in the passing game.,Authentic Chad Williams Jersey,Authentic Dorian Johnson Jersey, rookie receiver John Ross suffered an apparent knee injury in the team’s final preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts and could potentially miss extended time

21-12. The process was off to a rousing beginning,Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey,Sean McDermott had just won his opening game as an NFL head coach. The Bills had defeated the hapless Jets on Sunday, and he made sure to spread the credit around.
"Praise God,Authentic Graham Glasgow Jersey," McDermott said in his post-game presser. "That was a great team victory. Thank Terry and Kim (Pegula) for giving us the resources that they give us. It was an entire building win."
" but the coach had a good point. McDermott made sure to praise the fans for bringing their typical energy and passion. Maybe season tickets are down this season,I don't think of New Era Field as a "building, but the enthusiasm of the true Buffalo diehards doesn't appear to have diminished.
which elevated the Bills to sole possession of first place in the AFC East for at least a week. The defense, McDermott's specialty, played a strong game,They had plenty to cheer about in the opener, albeit against the worse offense in the NFL. They were resilient after some early stumbles.
there's one important item that McDermott could use from ownership:,womens A'Shawn Robinson Jersey A legitimate deep receiver. Not to rain on anyone's parade,But as far as resources go, but that natural resource was shipped out the door when the Pegulas signed off on the trade that sent Sammy Watkins to the Rams last month.
You can argue all you want about that deal.womens Jeff Heuerman Jersey I was in favor. But what's beyond debate is that the Bills do not have a wideout who can terrorize defenses deep the way Watkins did in those rare times when he was at full strength and operating on the same frequency as Tyrod Taylor.
the Bills didn't need to stretch the field with their wideouts. The Jets were that bad, and Taylor spend much of the afternoon playing catch with tight end Charles Clay (four catches,That was evident on Sunday. Granted, 53 yards) and star tailback LeSean McCoy (five grabs for 49 yards).
was targeted nine times. Taylor threw toward McCoy six times. He targeted his two wideouts, Jordan Matthews and rookie Zay Jones,womens Paxton Lynch Jersey, only seven times, who was a highly compensated invisible man for much of his first two seasons in Buffalo,Authentic Shane Ray Jersey,Clay, and those two combined for three just catches.
"It was good balance offensively,Authentic Ty Sambrailo Jersey, McDermott said. "We spread the ball around."
and said the Bills felt they could exploit the Jets' inexperienced and inferior linebacking crew with throws to Clay and McCoy,McDermott said the Bills took advantage of what the defense gave them. He said stats don't necessarily reflect balance. Taylor agreed,Authentic A'Shawn Robinson Jersey, and there's some truth to that.
" said Taylor, who was 16 of 28 passing for 224 yards and two TDs. Authentic Taylor Decker Jersey,""It's a game of matchups. Each game is different,"Those outside targets will definitely come, and we want to be able to take advantage of those matchups."
because the Bills aren't going to beat the good teams if they can't get their wideouts more involved down the field. It wasn't all balance on Sunday. On several occasions, Taylor had to scramble or dump off because Jones,They'd better, Mathews and Andre Holmes were being blanketed one-on-one down the field.
but it was hard to draw any hard conclusions.womens Taylor Decker Jersey The Bills were a nine-point favorite and won by nine. The Jets were supposed to be the worst team in the league and played like it. It's hard to believe Colin Kaepernick can't find a job in the league,It was a nice win, while there are two Jets quarterbacks even worse than Josh McCown.
it resembled a lot of Bills wins from the recent past. womens Graham Glasgow Jersey, They ran for 190 yards and averaged 4.5 yards a carry. McCoy was sensational with 159 yards from scrimmage and nearly broke a couple of long ones. The defense dominated a weak opponent. They did that several times last year,Actually, then teams with real weapons came along.
play strong defense and special teams and ask Taylor to play a conservative,Authentic Paxton Lynch Jersey,Authentic Adam Gotsis Jersey,Remember the Rex Ryan model? Sunday was a reasonable facsimile. Run the ball, mistake-free game and run from trouble when he has to.
who is 1-10 in his career when he throws 30 or more times,womens Adam Gotsis Jersey,They ran 60 percent of the time (42 of 70 plays). Taylor,womens Shane Ray Jersey,womens Ty Sambrailo Jersey,,,didn't have to touch that threshold again.
Nathan Peterman was billed as the “most NFL ready” quarterback of the 2017 draft class. He even drew comparisons to New England Patriot’s QB Tom Brady.
Peterman, who was selected in the fifth round by the Bills,Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey, has performed well throughout the preseason and could be thrust into the starting role depending on whether Tyrod Taylor clears the NFL’s concussion protocol,Authentic David Johnson Jersey, after suffering a head injury in the team’s third preseason game.
and also led the Bills first team offense to it’s first touchdown of the preseason after entering following the injury to Taylor.,The rookie has thrown for nearly 400 yards,womens Larry Fitzgerald Jersey,
“He is poised, he’s intelligent. ,womens P.J. Williams JerseyI like his command and how he displayed himself the other night running with the 1’s,” Head Coach Sean McDermott told reporters on Tuesday.
“Again, all the information I’m getting from the huddle was that he wasn’t flinching, that’s the first step.womens Patrick Peterson Jersey, It’s one thing to go out there,” he continued. “To me, it’s another thing to go out there and carry yourself with that type of poise and composure to where the team is drawn to you and you can move the offense.”
Heading into the final preseason game, womens Garrett Grayson JerseyMcDermott said there’s a good chance Peterman and newly signed quarterback Keith Wenning split time. However, McDermott acknowledged the importance of Peterman staying healthy knowing he could be called upon to start in the season opener against the Jets if Taylor hasn’t recovered from his concussion. The rookie’s playing time will also be determined by how quickly Wenning can grasp the offense.
the quarterback situation brings added pressure with players battling for roster spots and with cuts three days awayAuthentic Larry Fitzgerald Jersey,,On that front
Wenning told reporters on Tuesday it’s a challenging situation with only two days to get familiar with the playbook and players.womens Pat Tillman Jersey
” he said. “I know a couple of people here,Authentic Hau'oli Kikaha Jersey,“It’s tough, that’s about it. Some guys I’ve been on other teams with. Coach (Rick) Dennison,Authentic Garrett Grayson Jersey, his offense,Authentic P.J. Williams Jersey, I know how to run the offense,Authentic Patrick Peterson Jersey,, I’m comfortable. But as far as knowing the tendencies of the receivers and lineman, I’m pretty familiar with. That’s been the biggest thing, as long as I know the plays, and the lineman hearing my cadence and stuff like that, that’s the tough part.”
The former Ball State quarterback is also in an interesting situation himself as he also works to show teams he should be on their 53-man roster. Wenning, who has mostly been a practice squad player since being drafted in 2014,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey has never play a down in a regular season game. He was a member of the Bengals active roster in December of last season serving as A.J McCarron’s backup after starter Andy Dalton suffered a thumb injury.womens David Johnson Jersey,
” Wenning said. “That’s the big thing,“I’m going to take every opportunity and run with it, knowing the offense and being able to move and run the offense successfully. I’m just going to take it one play at a time, one series at a time, trust the guys around me,womens Hau'oli Kikaha Jersey,,know they’ll do their job and try to do my best.”womens Julio Jones Jersey,
Bills have the second-oldest roster in the NFL,womens Dawuane Smoot Jersey,Despite rebuild
After the Buffalo Bills replaced their entire coaching staff and front office this offseason and traded away one of their top players, Sammy Watkins, this August, it is fair to say the team is the midst of at least some degree of a rebuild.
However, averaging 26.81 years old, according to data released Thursday by the league. Only the Arizona Cardinals, the Bills' opening-day 53-man roster was the second-oldest in the NFL, averaging 27.47, had an older roster to begin the season.
How does Buffalo reconcile the relatively advanced age of their roster with its philosophy of building a contender in the long term? Coach Sean McDermott reiterated Thursday his belief that his team needs veteran leadership to shape its younger players into leaders of the future.
it's trying to win now and sustain in the future with putting a good foundation.," he said. "In my experience,Authentic Tarell Basham Jersey, I've been around some older teams,Authentic Marlon Mack Jersey,"Hopefully with [the age] comes wisdom,womens Zach Banner Jersey, and they were pretty good teams. Really
"The good part about is you have the older guys that can show the younger guys the way. Then we've got all of our draft picks that are watching these older guys lead. They're the second crust of leader guys developing,Authentic Cam Robinson Jersey, watching these older guys here. So that's a good blend."
The "second crust" of young players the Bills have to develop consists mainly of their 2017 rookie class. The Bills had 12 rookie and first-year players on its opening-day roster,Authentic Dawuane Smoot Jersey,womens Dede Westbrook Jersey, tied for the eighth-most in the NFL.
the fifth-most in the NFL. That means the middle class of the Bills' roster, at least in terms of age,womens Patrick Mahomes II Jersey,Buffalo also had 10 players who were 30 years or older, is thin. That is partly the product of McDermott and first-year general manager Brandon Beane parting ways with nine of former GM Doug Whaley's draft picks from the 2014 through 2016 classes.
including six in the first three rounds. Added to the 2017 draft class that the Bills' current management group is more likely to retain than previous draft classes,The Bills figure to trend younger in the coming years. They have eight draft selections in 2018, the Bills have the opportunity to build a young core.
only four are under contract next season: guard Richie Incognito, center Eric Wood,Older players could also depart next offseason. Of the 10 players who were 30 or older to start this season, linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and kicker Stephen Hauschka.
defensive tackle Kyle Williams, linebacker Ramon Humber and cornerback Shareece Wright are all scheduled for free agency.,womens Tarell Basham Jersey,womens Marlon Mack Jersey, running back Mike Tolbert,Authentic Zach Banner Jersey,Authentic Leonard Fournette Jersey,Meanwhile, safety Colt Anderson,womens Leonard Fournette Jersey,Authentic Dede Westbrook Jersey,Authentic Patrick Mahomes II Jersey,womens Cam Robinson Jersey, quarterback Joe Webb
LeSean McCoy was more than willing to put the Bills’ first loss of 2017 squarely on his shoulders.
Even though the Buffalo held Cam Newton and the re-tooled Panthers to just three field goals and zero touchdowns, it wasn’t enough to keep Buffalo undefeated for another week. Rookie receiver Zay Jones had the ball in his hands before dropping the potential game-winning touchdown,womens Sean Lee Jersey, had 12 carries for nine yards in his worst rushing performance since 2010. , and McCoy, the two-time All Pro and five-time Pro Bowler
” McCoy told The MMQB at his locker. “Credit to them because they did a good job. But this team relies on me to get it going on offense. I’m a big playmaker and I did nothing today.”,“I just… I didn’t play good. Authentic Travis Frederick Jersey,Simple as that. I played like a bum today
Through two games this season, the Panthers’ defense has given up the fewest amount of yards in the league, McCoy’s lack of effectiveness was jarring given his history—and especially when compared to the previous week’s 110-yard show against the Jets., and they’re the first team in seven years to not allow a touchdown through Week 2. Still
how do I put it,“We all have to do better but he’s a guy, he’s a guy who puts a lot of himself, but at the same time I get it and I understand it.”,” teammate Mike Tolbert says. “He is the guy. He’s the star running back. He’s the guy that when the running game looks bad or the offense looks bad, he puts it on himself. It’s not his fault that we didn’t execute today
These Bills are not constructed to win without a big day from McCoy. Since the start of the 2015 season,Authentic Nolan CarrollJersey, the Bills have won 15 games. Only four of those wins have come when McCoy didn’t reach 100 yards rushing., when Philadelphia traded McCoy in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso
Though McCoy did grab six passes for 34 yards,Authentic Dak Prescott Jersey, and six of his 12 carries gained zero or negative yardage.,Authentic Jason Witten Jersey, his disappearance in the run game doomed a Buffalo team dealing with a limited passing attack. His longest rush went for seven yards
the schedule shouldn’t inspire optimism in the next two weeks. The Bills get the Broncos (who just held Ezekiel Elliott to nine rushes for eight yards) next week followed by the Falcons (who bottled up Ty Montgomery Sunday night for 35 yards).,womens Tyron Smith Jersey,On top of that
Should the odds play out, which is about where prognosticators had them in a season many have dubbed a rebuilding year.,womens Zack Martin Jersey, the Bills will be 1–3 after that
“As players,womens Cole Beasley Jersey, we play. It’s their job to put the team together. We’ve got a lot of veterans on this team,” McCoy says. “Some may think it is but I don’t think so. We have enough guys in here who get it done.”,Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey, so I wouldn’t call us as much of a rebuild as people may think
Since trading away Sammy Watkins in August, many assumed this season would be a rebuild for Buffalo. With a first-year (and first-time) head coach, that seems to be coming true. The team’s biggest star is a 29-year-old former rushing title holder., a first-year (and first-time) general manager, a quarterback in whom no one seems invested and a promise of patience from the owner
saw it for the past two seasons with the Browns and will be treated to it for 14 more Sundays with the Jets.,The idea of a rebuild is intertwined with the notion of tanking—that a team can’t successfully build for the future if they don’t hit rock bottom first.womens Jason Witten Jersey, We have seen it in the NBA with the 76ers
though. McCoy,That doesn’t seem to be the case with these Bills, Lorenzo Alexander, and safety Jordan Poyer has been one of the best at his position in the league through two weeks., Richie Incognito and Kyle Williams all made the Pro Bowl last year, and center Eric Wood is one year separated from the honor. They traded a name in cornerback Ronald Darby for a better fit in E.J. GainesAuthentic Sean Lee Jersey
“That’s the weirdest thing. Yeah it’s a rebuild. What’s that mean,”,Authentic Tyron Smith Jersey Alexander says., that we’re tanking? That’s part of what a GM does is look to future and current. That’s what his role is. I don’t understand what the issue is
people and teammates. I’m not going out there to lose a game. It’s a silly concept that people even bring up. Especially when we have people like Kyle Williams,womens Nolan CarrollJersey,“Tanking is so disrespectful for the guys in this locker room. ... I want to go out and represent my name on my back and my family,womens Dak Prescott Jersey,E. Wood, and now we’re trying to figure out a way to lose to have a draft pick in the future?”,Authentic Zack Martin Jersey, Richie, vets in this league who haven’t won a championship
There should be no accusations of tanking in Buffalo,womens Travis Frederick Jersey,, they’ll be heading for that high draft pick in the future., but clearly this rebuilding team has only one star on offense. And if McCoy can’t produce
and it felt like the Buffalo Bills had already given him too many carries.,LeSean McCoy took his first carry up the middle into a sea of Baltimore Ravens
McCoy is 29 years old. He needs the preseason like he needs a hole in the head. He's one of the best running backs in football, it felt particularly important to keep him healthy., so a day after the Patriots lost wide receiver Julian Edelman to a knee injury in a useless football game
Instead, McCoy ran five more times. He gained a grand total of seven yards. He also caught two passes for negative-two yards. He didn't exit the game until the final series of the first half. Lucky for the Bills, especially after the team had already lost its starting quarterback.,Authentic Jadeveon Clowney Jersey, he left the game healthy. But it's fair to wonder what in the world he was doing in there in the first place
"It's really what we need to do as an offense,Authentic Duane Brow Jersey, and in this case LeSean,womens Whitney Mercilus Jersey," Bills coach Sean McDermott said after the game."There's an acclimation period.", to get ready for Week 1
and it left Bills fans holding their breath every time McCoy touched the ball.,Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey,McCoy has looked plenty acclimated during training camp practices and the preseason games he's already played. The last thing the Bills could afford on Saturday night was an injury to McCoy. They tempted fate
"I'm right there with them," McDermott said. "When he touches the ball, he needs touches to get himself ready and acclimated for Week 1. We are fortunate that he got some good touches and came out healthy tonight.", I hold my breath and say a lot of prayers. That said
Fortunate it putting it lightly. What's worse is it doesn't sound like McCoy got much out of the game.
"I didn't play well at all, especially myself. I have to get back to playing ball and get ready for our opener."," McCoy said. "This was one of my worst preseason games. I have to get to some drawing boards this week and learn from our mistakes
McCoy's preparation for that opener shouldn't include the Bills' preseason finale against the Lions. His health is more important than any acclimation period.
