Sports – Their Effects On My Life

JPP is playing on a one-year $10 million prove-it deal. Sunday’s game in which he compiled four QB hits, seven tackles, three sacks, a fumble return for a TD and four tackles for loss displayed he can still be a difference-maker. The pass rusher is not worried about his contract situation saying, “that will take care of itself.” At times last year, JPP was in a position to make plays, but couldn’t wrap up a ball carrier. Now he’s making those plays we were used to seeing before the accident. The pass rusher believes he can show overcoming a physical hardship to excel in the NFL is possible. The Redskins’ collapse down the stretch — losing four of their last six games — will lead to an offseason of speculation about quarterback Kirk Cousins’ future. In a big spot, Cousins flopped, throwing two interceptions (including one on a potential game-winning…

Seattle Seahawks sign ex-Vikings kicker Blair Walsh

With Trevone Boykin’s legal trouble and the lack of experience behind Russell Wilson, the Seahawks are in the market for a veteran backup quarterback. Adding Kaepernick as an insurance policy is logical for both sides. The quarterback has the support of the major players in Seattle’s locker room and could fit in the run-based offense if he needed to play due to injury to Wilson. It might not happen right now, but Kaepernick signing in Seattle at some point this summer makes the most sense of any potential landing spot for the quarterback. Peterson is an interesting fit for the Seahawks, who, despite favoring a brand of power football, still run many of their plays from the shotgun — a slightly less favorable starting point for Peterson than a straightforward I formation or single back formation where the quarterback is under center. A nice explainer from the Star-Tribune in Minnesota…

Three offseason priorities for Denver Broncos

wholesale jerseys The 2017 offseason has seen the hierarchy of the AFC West, one often paced by the Broncos, take new shape. The Oakland Raiders brought in Marshawn Lynch, improving upon a running game and an offense that already tore through the league in 2016. The Chargers booked it up to Los Angeles with a new coach and one of the most underrated rosters in the league. The division champion Kansas City Chiefs bring back essentially the same team that earned them a bye week in ’16. Where does that leave the Broncos, less than 16 months removed from their Super Bowl title, but without a known franchise quarterback or consistent offensive line play? Could Denver, by virtue of elimination, be locked into fourth place in the AFC West? Davis spent last season with the Browns, who released the fifth-year passer in August. An undrafted and unremarkable arm talent out…

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…

Whitney Mercilus: Houston Texans aren’t panicking

nba jersey wholesalers When you’re a Belichick disciple like O’Brien, this is the type of mistake that makes you want to break things. People have been banished into the cornfields for less on Patriot Way. Special teams coordinator Larry Izzo, a man of Pats lineage himself, understands this. But no assistant wants to get destroyed by his coach on the sideline. The Texans came out of the first half up 14-3 on the Lions, which is good. However, at the end of the first half, Houston had just 10 men on the field and had to burn a time out, which is bad. This is a fundamental breakdown in communication that really shouldn’t happen, and O’Brien made sure his special teams coaches knew it. “Man, everybody is panicking,” edge rusher Whitney Mercilus said of the public reaction to the team’s recent play, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “I…
