Struggling Bene’ Benwikere waived by Panthers

cheap nfl jerseys After waltzing to Super Bowl 50 on a magic carpet ride that saw them rampage through the regular season with a 15-1 record, the defending NFC champions are already fighting for their playoff lives after stumbling out of the gate to a 1-3 start. Under the current playoff format, which dates back to 1990, the Panthers are the eighth Super Bowl participant to start the season 1-3 or worse the following season — and only the 1996 Dallas Cowboys rebounded to make the playoffs. To make matters worse, only eight teams since 1990 (6.3 percent) have made the playoffs after a 1-4 start. Now, I’m sure Rivera wishes that he could open up the medical cabinet and find the remedy for the Panthers’ ailments, but the truth lies in the tape — and the All-22 Coaches Film doesn’t paint a pretty picture. To be frank, Carolina looks…

Paul Kruger to sign with New Orleans Saints

cheap jerseys Such was the case in New Orleans. The Saints released wide receiver Hakeem Nicks on Monday, according to the club. The team also signed long snapper Chris Highland and announced that star left tackle Terron Armstead was coming off the physically unable to perform list. Nicks’ career hit a speedbump after a 76-catch, 1,192-yard season in 2011. At that time, the tandem of Nicks and Victor Cruz was looked at as one of the NFL’s most feared receiving tandems. Nicks, at one point, was supposed to receive a similar mega-deal, but a series of injuries led to a sharp decline in production. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the development, helping to explain Lewis’ goodbye message Friday evening on Instagram. Lewis was limited to only six games last season because of surgeries for an MCL tear, torn labrum and sports hernia. Lewis was dealing with a hip problem…

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…

Kansas City Chiefs sign running back Bishop Sankey

cheap authentic nfl jerseys wholesale The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, birthed by the forefathers of the American Football League, have been going at it since 1960, when the Chiefs were known as the Dallas Texans and the Silver and Black sported Black and Gold. The two franchises appeared in the first two Super Bowls and remained bitter rivals through the John Madden era, the Raiders’ move to Los Angeles (and back), Joe Montana’s move from the Bay to the K, the Rich Gannon resurgence and beyond. The rivalry has stayed dormant on the national stage for some years now, ever since Oakland spiraled into irrelevance post-Jon Gruden. But now in 2016, both the Raiders and Chiefs are playoff, nay, Super Bowl contenders, boosted by gutsy play-calling, transcendent defenders, timely turnovers and breakout offensive weapons. Smith’s numbers during the Chefs’ nine-game winning streak (68.6 percent completion rate, 12 passing…
