Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross signs rookie contract

cheap jerseys Maualuga, who was selected by the Bengals in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft, played in 114 games with 104 starts over eight seasons. He was a starter on playoff teams in six of his Bengals campaigns. The release comes one week after the Bengals signed former Cardinals linebacker Kevin Minter to a one-year deal. Minter finished 2016 with 81 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 16 games. The Cincinnati Enquirer recently reported that the Bengals placed a first-round price tag on McCarron last season. After Tobin took the podium at the NFL Scouting Combine and repeatedly emphasized McCarron’s value, it certainly doesn’t appear the team is willing to lower that asking price. “He plays a very valuable position: backup quarterback,” Tobin explained. “And you’re always one play away from going to your backup quarterback. We view our team as a team that can challenge. Whether that’s…

Mitchell Trubisky ‘couldn’t believe’ Bears drafted him

cheap nfl jerseys “I think any quarterback has just got to be able to brush off adversity and fight through, and that’s what Mike will do. I think we’ll handle that well.” On one hand, Pace is right. Adversity is inevitable and an NFL quarterback must be mentally strong to survive. On the other, adversity typically comes from an outside source, not your own organization. This is weird and Mike Glennon is right to be PO’d. Kizer worked out Thursday at Halas Hall at the Bears’ workout designated for local draft prospects, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Each NFL club can conduct a workout for draft prospects who are from or attended college in its city, although a new provision has allowed NFL clubs to expand the definition of “local.” Now, teams can designate three colleges outside their immediate area to qualify for the workout, and the Bears chose Notre…

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…

Los Angeles Rams fire head coach Jeff Fisher

cheap jerseys Being a Rams fan was a weird time in the 1990s. To put it in the terms of a television show that perfectly encapsulates the decade and is the show of record of my youth, “Saved By the Bell”; the 49ers were Zack. The Raiders were Slater. We were Screech. The 49ers had the Super Bowl titles and the best quarterback to ever play before Tom Brady. The Raiders had Ice Cube wearing their gear. As for the Rams; well I think I saw Jay Leno on the sidelines of a game once. The last game I went to was October 2, 1994. The Rams lost 8-5 to the Falcons. I was one of roughly 20,000 people who witnessed Tommy Maddox playing quarterback for the Rams. Though, I won’t be too harsh on Tommy, he did deliver LA’s last pro football championship as the MVP of the XFL…

Bills work out Trubisky, Deshaun Watson to visit 49ers, Cardinals

wholesale jerseys San Francisco needed another body after watching journeyman Thad Lewis go down with a season-ending ACL tear. Colin Kaepernick, meanwhile, is dealing with a “dead arm” and hasn’t thrown a pass at practice in six days. Kaepernick didn’t dress in Sunday night’s preseason loss to the Texans, leaving presumptive starter Blaine Gabbert, Lewis and rookie Jeff Driskel to deal with Houston’s defense. The move seems on par with the surprising decision the Broncos made in 2011 to make John Elway their general manager, although Elway did spend a few years in charge of an Arena Football League team before taking the job. Lynch has been an analyst for Fox Sports since 2008. One advantage Lynch would seem to have? As part of his job with Fox he is able to travel every week and spend his days in meetings with team personnel, executives and coaches as part of…

After Titans lashing, Chargers shut down run vs. Cards

wholesale nfl jerseys This has been a long campaign, and I’m sure we all want to put aside stadium talk for a while and focus on the rest of the Chargers’ season. Our team, with its mix of veteran leaders and young stars, has played some of the most exciting football in the NFL so far, and I can’t wait to see how we do throughout the rest of the season. Our players have shown great heart and resilience in the NFL’s toughest division. I’m eager — as I’m sure you all are — to give the stadium debate a rest and enjoy some Chargers football. So I’m going to put aside any discussion of our possible next steps until after the season, to allow everyone to focus on football and to give my family and me time to think carefully about what is best for the future of our…

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…
