Arizona Cardinals sign WR Jaron Brown to extension

cheap jerseys The Cardinals will consider the possibility today as the club hosts the former Notre Dame quarterback on a pre-draft visit, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Palmer has thrown for more than 4,000 yards for the Cardinals over each of the last two seasons, and led the team to the NFC title game after the 2015 season. But at age 37, it could be time for the club invest a high draft choice in an understudy at the position. Arizona will host another top quarterback prospect, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson, on a pre-draft visit Wednesday, and has also conducted a private workout with Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes. “Jaron always makes plays,” coach Bruce Arians raved in August. “He’s very physical for a wideout. Great special teams player. Put in the right system, he could be a solid ‘3’ or ‘2.’ We never hesitate throwing him the ball in…

Washington Redskins astutely riding ground game in win streak

cheap jerseys While it should never be surprising to see a 13-year veteran get released this time of year while general managers try to get younger and cheaper, Jenkins looked to have a decent chance of making the roster. He could still be a heavy favorite to return once the Redskins can get him on a week-to-week deal and don’t have to guarantee his salary for the season. If Washington doesn’t bring him back, they’ll obviously keep their eyes peeled for help along the defensive line. The team is currently relying on the likes of Ricky Jean-Francois, Kendric Golston, Chris Baker, Kendall Reyes and cheap jerseys and Ziggy Hood. Jenkins played in 14 games for the Giants last season, logging three sacks and 15 total tackles. A defensive tackle and stretch end, Jenkins could still be versatile enough to find a home in any defensive system. There are many players…

Titans release Jason McCourty after eight seasons

wholesale jerseys The move puts a still-talented corner on the market at an interesting time. Despite the draft coming up, defensive back is a notoriously difficult position to develop quickly, which might make Jason McCourty the more palatable option. The Titans are hoping that the offseason addition of Logan Ryan can help cover up McCourty’s absence. Inside the locker room, the Titans will also need to replace some leadership. Jason rose from the ranks of sixth-round pick to become one of the Titans’ best and most consistent players over the past eight years. Lattimore is a polished cover corner who can upgrade the Titans’ secondary. He has tremendous movement skills and does a great job of using a variety of techniques — he can do everything. His game can translate into any system. If Lattimore is able to overcome the hamstring issues that plagued him during his time at Ohio…

Injuries: Cam Newton throws again during team drills

wholesale jerseys The 28-year-old cornerback signed a four-year $25.5 million contract in 2014. With no guaranteed money left on the deal, the Bucs will save the entire $6.5 million salary-cap hit in 2017. Verner was scheduled to count as the fifth-highest hit to the Bucs’ cap. The release makes fiscal and football sense after Verner lost out on a starting spot in the 2016 lineup to rising first-round rookie Vernon Hargreaves. After a dreadful 2015 campaign in which he was benched, Verner started three games last season and saw fewer than 25 snaps in 10 contests. He started just nine games the past two seasons. I’ve documented every “Hard Knocks” season for NFL.com since 2012, when Joe Philbin was wowing America with charisma that would leave a young Elvis Presley green with envy. Barring a nuclear fallout scenario, I’ll be back at it again with episode recaps starting in August….

Jason Peters will stay with Philadelphia Eagles in 2017

wholesale jerseys The undrafted signal-caller logged seven starts in Oakland, with six of those coming in 2013 and one last season while filling in for injured starter Derek Carr. McGloin then suffered a shoulder injury in the regular-season finale, shoving rookie Connor Cook into the lineup for Oakland’s wild-card loss to the Texans. In Philadelphia, McGloin will battle for position with Nick Foles behind locked-in starter Carson Wentz. Coach Doug Pederson kept just two quarterbacks on the roster last season, though, meaning that McGloin is no lock to make the team. Peters is set to make $9.5 million in base salary, and his workout bonuses bump that number to $10.7 million. He’s set to count $11.7 million against the Eagles’ salary cap. While there was some discussion about Peters being asked to take a pay cut, it appears he’ll play this season under that number. Philly has cap issues entering…

Oakland Raiders give Jack Del Rio new four-year deal

wholesale nfl jerseys The move was anticipated. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday the Raiders would file their relocation paperwork within days. It is the first step in a relocation process that won’t become official until the Raiders receive 24 votes from NFL owners to formally make the move. The Raiders had until Feb. 15 to file relocation papers. NFL owners could vote on the team’s relocation proposal at the Annual League Meeting in March, per Rapoport. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said “if the (Raiders) decide that they can’t make it work in Oakland and cheap jerseys and they decide that they want to file for relocation, then their window is from when they get eliminated from the playoffs to Feb. 15.” They will file before that window closes. There are still questions, including whether or not the Raiders do the deal for the $1.9 billion Las Vegas…

Giants to make a run at re-signing Jason Pierre-Paul

cheap mlb jerseys In signing Fluker, the Giants address their most pressing need this offseason: building up the offensive line. In 2016, New York struggled mightily in the running game and often failed to protect Eli Manning. The addition of Brandon Marshall to an already-stacked receiving corps was a flashy move, but it didn’t make New York’s offense any more dangerous heading into 2017. By securing a veteran, if flawed offensive lineman and former first-round pick, the Giants stand a moderately better chance of developing a balanced offense and making a legitimate run at Lombardi. Cruz caught four passes for 25 yards and a touchdown in that Super Bowl XLVI win, and had a monstrous, 10-catch, 142-yard performance against the 49ers in the NFC Championship game two weeks prior. The 30-year-old veteran made an unexpected comeback in 2016 after missing 28 games over the previous two years thanks to a…

The formula: Why this Kansas City Chiefs team is different

cheap nfl jerseys With Berry reporting next week there is a great chance he plays Week 1 when the Chiefs face the San Diego Chargers. Rapoport reported that Berry is in good shape and “trained like crazy” this offseason. Coach Andy Reid told NBC Sports Radio on Friday morning he has no concerns about Berry coming in out of shape and expects the safety to start the season on the field. With 60 appearances but just two starts as a pro, Johnson can’t mask the loss of Berry, who chose not to report to camp after failing to reach a long-term deal with the club prior to the July 15 deadline for franchise-tagged players. Ron Parker, Jamell Fleming, Daniel Sorensen and cheap jerseys and Stevie Brown have all seen safety snaps during camp, but Johnson gives the club an extra body to use during practice and preseason games. He’s no…

Three offseason priorities for Carolina Panthers

wholesale jerseys On defense, a horde of offseason additions will help a unit that repeatedly let them down in 2015. Tackle Malik Jackson, free safety Tashaun Gipson and cornerback Prince Amukamara can all make an immediate impact. Scanning the roster, there’s talent — or potential — at almost every position. Most importantly, owner Shad Khan has patiently refused to panic, giving general manager David Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley the time to develop a squad that looks ready to compete in the AFC. It’s premature to ticket the Jags for January play, but House isn’t the only believer in NFL circles. Lee, 34, is a three-time Pro Bowl punter. He spent his first 11 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers before being sent to Cleveland last season. Lee ranks sixth in NFL history with a 46.2 gross punting average. Last season Lee set a single-season Browns record with a 46.7-yard…

Baltimore Ravens keeping eye on NFL Media mock drafts

wholesale jerseys Long story short, the math is against Baltimore putting up another stinker of a season in 2016, despite the playoff-worthy competition in Pittsburgh and Cincinnati in the AFC North. And as Robert Griffin III and Terrelle Pryor demonstrated Thursday night, the Browns won’t be as smooth a walk in the park as previously anticipated either. Still, the Ravens must concern themselves only with their own production if they wish to capture the magic of 2009, as Suggs insinuated. Can a running back room of Terrance West and Justin Forsett match Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce’s 1,675 yards and 10 TDs? Will Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman replicate Anquan Boldin and wholesale jerseys and Torrey Smith’s production? Can the Ravens’ defense return to its feared form? NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock compared Lynch to Flacco last November, while an NFL executive sees another AFC North quarterback in Lynch: Pittsburgh’s…
