Test? Deion Sanders don’t need no stinking test.
The New York Giants got an early introduction to Neon Deion’s bravado at the 1989 NFL combine.
“They sat me down and gave me aJohn Matuszak Youth Jersey thick book … thicker than a phone book,” Sanders told The Dallas Morning News. “I said, ‘What’s this?’
“They said, ‘This is our test that we give all the players.’

Darren Woodson: The Cowboys 'need' to re-sign DeMarcus Ware

Сообщение Angel92 » 15 мар 2017, 12:24

The prevailing thought heading into free agency for the Dallas Cowboys can be summed up in two words: Pass rush.
They lack one, they need one and they won't everMoritz Boehringer Authentic Jersey be considered serious contenders for a Super Bowl without one. Few understand this better than legendary strong safety Darren Woodson, who won three Super Bowls as a member of the club from 1992-2003.
In that time, Woodson played alongside the likes of Jim Jeffcoat, Tony Tolbert, Ken Norton and illustrious Hall of Fame defensive end Charles Haley.
The Cowboys’ season may be over, but they’re not mailing it in. Don’t miss any breaking offseason news, take a second to sign up for our FREE Cowboys messenger!
So when Woodson, a Ring of Honor and Texas Football Hall of Fame inductee, says the team has an issue on defense -- they have an issue on defense.
"It all starts up front," said the five-time pro bowler, via http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-andrew-gachkar-jersey-c-2_62.html The Dallas Morning News. "When we had our biggest success on the Cowboys, our front seven dominated. That's what they've got to get back to.
And Woodson has an idea that mirrors what some others are also calling for this offseason.
He wants to see the Cowboys bring back the team's all-time sack leader, DeMarcus Ware.
"Love it," says Woodson. "You don't have to play him on every down either. They can use him as a situational pass rusher. They need someone, when it's third-and-6 that's going to be a freak. We had Charles Haley as our freak. They need a freak on third down.
"If you're looking for a situational guy, look what Dwight Freeney did with the Atlanta Falcons. Not only was he a situational guy, he was helping Vic Beasley on the other side with the mental approach. That's where DeMarcus Ware could help you. NotAlfred Morris Youth Jersey only can he be an elite pass rusher, there's his experience.
"We had Greg Ellis trying to help the young guys. I think DeMarcus Ware could do the same. He did the same with Von Miller. He can do it here. I think they have some young guys who can get the job done, but they have to look out at that free agent market and see if they can bring in another guy."
All is not lost, however, as there's at least one pass rusher on the roster Woodson sees are teetering on the verge of breaking out.
"DeMarcus Lawrence," Woodson noted. "He needs more reps, and he has to be available. He has to mentally checked in, too."
Lawrence will be returning from his second back surgery in a year as he enters the final year on his rookie deal, and now's the time for him to prove Woodson and the Cowboys right. His ability to impact the game will go a long way to seeing http://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-kenny-stabler-jersey-c-2_31.html the team turn the corner in the postseason, and if Ware returns to contribute -- it'll certainly help their case.
Besides, who wouldn't love seeing a "DeMarcus" terrorizing opposing QBs from both sides of the defensive line at the same time?
Sure you would.

Gordmans closing a warning to other brick-and-mortar stores

Сообщение Angel92 » 15 мар 2017, 12:25

Nebraska based discount departmentJustin Ellis Authentic Jersey store Gordmans announced Monday they filed for bankruptcy and plan to liquidate all their stores. Jim Otto is the president of the Nebraska Retail Federation and says this news follows announcements by other big retailers who are also closing locations across the country.
Otto says, “It is a continuation of a trend we have seen we’re seeing nationwide. Brick-and-mortar retailers are having a real challenge and the number one concern and competitors are the Amazon’s of the world. It is just more convenient for people to shop online.”
Otto says in order to be successful, brick-and-mortar stores need to have a niche market, unique merchandise and even provide somehttp://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-jerry-rice-jersey-c-2_42.html entertainment. He says years ago when Gordmans was Richman-Gordman they had a zoo play area for children. He says now sporting goods stores have ferris wheels inside to attract customers. He says it isn’t bad for stores to develop a destination marketing plan to get people in the door.
Even if people enter those stores they have to offer some incentive for people to buy their products. Otto says, “If you can buy the same thing at 50 different places you are going to have a hard time in your brick-and-mortar store because people will go for price. Unless you can give some advice or expertise as to how the product is used, it has http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-dan-mccullers-jersey-c-2_67.html to be more than the product because you can get that online.”
Gordmans has been in operation since 1915 and currently operates 106 stores in 22 states.

Patriots sign RB Rex Burkhead

Сообщение Angel92 » 15 мар 2017, 12:25

The New England Patriots announced Tuesday Deangelo Williams Authentic Jersey that they have signed former Bengals running back Rex Burkhead. Terms were not disclosed.
Burkhead entered the NFL as a sixth-round draft choice out of Nebraska in 2013. At 5-foot-10, 210 pounds, he could be eyed to fill Brandon Bolden's role in New England as a reserve running back and special-teamer.
Burkhead reflected on the signing in a tweet.
Follow
Rex Burkhead ✔ @RBrex2022
Just want to thank the Bengals org. forhttp://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-tennessee-titans-c-1_1538.html everything the past 4 years. All class. Excited for the opportunity to compete in New England.

Burkhead had 74 carries for 344 yards and two touchdowns and 17 receptions for 145 yards last season. He played 22 percent of the team's offensive snaps in 2016 and 47 percent of the special-teams snaps.
Burkhead, who turns 27 on July 2, was primarily a special-teamer in his first three NFL seasons, before injuries to Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard opened opportunities for him on offense last season.
"I'm confident in my skills," Burkhead said last season, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. "I know what I can do; just needed an opportunity. For me, it came Year 4 into the NFL, so I've been patiently waiting for it and just did my best out there when I got the chance."
At running back, the Patriots have Dion Lewis, James White, D.J. Foster and Tyler Gaffney under contract for 2017. LeGarrette Blount and Bolden arehttp://www.officialvikingshop.com/shop-by-players-jerick-mckinnon-jersey-c-2_5.html unrestricted free agents, and Lewis and White are scheduled for unrestricted free agency after the 2017 season.
ESPN's Katherine Terrell and Mike Reiss contributed to this report.

Recent cornerback contracts could make it tougher for Viking

Сообщение Angel92 » 15 мар 2017, 12:26

Apparently the New England Patriots weren’t happy satisfied with a defense that was good enough to win the Super Bowl.
On the first day of free agency, the Chaz Green Authentic Jersey Patriots announced a monster contract for former Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore, despite already having a quality No. 1 shutdown corner in Malcolm Butler.
Here’s now the deal breaks down (via overthecap.com):
Last year he allowed 9.4 Yards Per Attempt in coverage according to Football Outsiders, which was 77th out of 84, Pro Football Focus ranked him 61st of 112 (though he had scored higher the previous two years) and Football Outsiders’ “Success Rate” stat ranked Gilmore 40th of 84.
One stat in his favor was that Gilmore was targeted only 51 times, the second fewest times among corners who played all 16 games. That would indicate that opponents were hesitant to test Gilmore and likely only threw his direction when it was a sure thing.
Another factor to consider is that Rex Ryan’s defense sputtered in part because the former Jets coach didn’t adapt his scheme to up-tempo offenses. Many players’ production dipped from when the Bills were an elite defense in 2014 under Jim Schwartz.
The Patriots are plenty familiar with Gilmore’s talents, having faced him twice per year since he was drafted in the first round by the Bills. It’s hard to question Bill Belichick’s decision to throw a truckload of money at Gilmore since, well, he’s Bill Belichick – and it’s very possible his game improves in New England – but the Benson Mayowa Youth Jersey former South Carolina Gamecock is not currently considered one of the game’s top 5% defensive backs.
Compare Gilmore’s numbers to Xavier Rhodes and it appears the Minnesota Vikings’ cornerback has performed better as he’s come into his prime. Rhodes allowed just 5.9 Yards Per Attempt last season and had five interceptions while often playing the “shutdown” role, matching up with the opponent’s No. 1 receiver. There have been different numbers, but NFL.com wrote that Rhodes allowed a league-low 39.2 rating against.
So Rhodes’ name was pushed up into the “elite” category in the NFL along with players like Aquib Talib, Richard Sherman, Patrick Peterson etc.
Another corner who made a name for himself in 2016 was AJ Bouye, who allowed 5.4 Yards Per Attempt and was ranked third overall by Pro Football Focus.
He hit the market as well and received even more than Gilmore.
Instead of signing extensions with their givenhttp://www.authenticnflraidersshop.com/shop-by-players-lester-hayes-jersey-c-2_23.html teams, Gilmore and Bouye decided to hit the market and it paid off (understatement alert!). It would be hard to argue that Rhodes shouldn’t do the same thing to maximize his payday.
Teams are masterful at finding ways to fit players under the cap, but the Vikings might have a tough time matching a mega offer.
A decision will have to be made on a contract extension for Sam Bradford. Minnesota will either have to franchise to sign Bradford long term, which could cost $20 million or more. If Teddy Bridgewater isn’t recovered and prepared to take over as the Vikings starter in 2018, the Vikings may still have to pay him if they pick up his fifth-year option. Also, Anthony Barr’s fifth-year option is up and Sharrif Floyd hits unrestricted free agency. And if the Vikings are thinking two years out, the 2019 group of UFAs includes Stefon Diggs, Danielle Hunter, Eric Kendricks, Linval Joseph and Everson Griffen.
The Vikings may attempt to work http://www.authenticraiderssale.com/shop-by-players-latavius-murray-jersey-c-2_8.html out a long-term deal with Rhodes this offseason or Rhodes may choose to bet on himself and look to hit the market next offseason. It will be a situation worth watching going into 2017.

Raiders' Mario Edwards Jr. working hard to regain form this

Сообщение Angel92 » 15 мар 2017, 12:26

Oakland Raiders DL MarioCarnell Lake Youth Jersey Edwards Jr. was injured for most of the 2016 season with a severe hip strain he suffered in a preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.
After being place on injured reserve with a designation to return, Edwards was eligible to return as early as Week 9. The team took a very cautious approach with their 23-year-old defensive end choosing not to put him back on the field until Week 16 against the Colts.
Edwards finished the season playing in http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-dan-mccullers-jersey-c-2_67.html just two regular season games where he saw limited snaps, including Oakland’s playoff loss to the Houston Texans.

If Edwards’ Instagram is any indication,http://www.officialnflapparelshop.com/nfl-jerseys-denver-broncos-c-1_1071.html fans should expect him to return to the field strong in 2017.
After a promising rookie season in 2015, there is reason to believe that Edwards can still be a key contributor on defense moving forward.
