Dontari Poe, Atlanta Falcons agree on one-year deal

cheap jerseys Dimitroff wound up keeping his gig with reduced power. New coach Dan Quinn was given control of the 53-man roster and reported directly to Blank. Scott Pioli, Dimitroff’s close friend, assumed greater responsibility with the NFL draft and pro scouting. Dimitroff’s status remained precarious after Quinn piloted the Falcons to an 8-8 season in 2015, requiring Blank to pen a statement after the season simply to say Dimitroff wasn’t getting fired. His excellent working relationship with Quinn was cited as the primary reason. But the team’s recent drafts should have been. The 2016 Falcons proved once again how quickly NFL teams can hashtag rise up with a few good drafts, especially when a franchise quarterback is in place. Only six current starters were on the team in 2013. Dimitroff and Pioli unearthed 10 starters in the last three drafts, highlighted by Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman, Pro…

Detroit Lions sign tight end Andrew Quarless

nfl wholesale jersey Tulloch was a tackling machine during his stint in Detroit. He amassed more than 100 tackles in four of his five seasons. He might be best remembered by the national audience for tearing his ACL in 2014 while celebrating a sack of Aaron Rodgers.

Theo Riddick is a pass-catching back, not a between-the-tackles player. Zach Zenner has proven ineffective outside of preseason action. The Lions rank 23rd in rushing, with a meager 89.8 yards per game on the ground for…

Guard Amini Silatolu signs with Chicago Bears

discount nike nfl jersey As for the Bears, Sitton gives them a valuable, workhorse lineman who is capable of transforming the dynamic of their protection unit. The three-time All-Pro, who hasn’t missed a start since 2011, solidifies the middle of the line and should greatly help a Bears running attack spearheaded by second-year back Jeremy Langford. Sitton’s signing comes a day after Kyle Long received a four-year contract extension with the Bears. With rookie Cody Whitehair expected to see starting time alongside veteran Ted Larsen at center, the Bears’ line will look a lot different from last season. It remains to be seen if it can help revitalize an offense that was very average looking in 2015. Jeffery missed seven games in 2015 due to injury. When on the field, he can be a difference-maker — and will certainly be Jay Cutler’s security blanket again in 2016 — but the…
