The Redskins ranked last in the NFL in rushing


yards per game and needed more depth up front. With Barkley selected by the Giants and Ezekiel Elliott in Dallas, the Redskins need to make sure they’re strong up front or they’ll get handled once more in the run game. They do have Jonathan Allen, Payne’s former Alabama teammate. When Allen was hurt last season and missed the last 11 games, the Redskins’ run defense suffered. Now, Washington should have enough depth to withstand injuries. Women's Adidas Alexander Radulov Authentic Green NHL Jersey: Dallas Stars #47 USA Flag Fashion Biggest question: Can he impact the pass game? Several scouts and coaches around the league aren’t sold that he can be a three-down player, and he doesn’t collapse the pocket. The Redskins also passed on two players who, perhaps, are more talented in safety Derwin James and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. If Payne provides push inside, they won’t regret the pick.-- John Keim An edge rusher was a no-brainer for the Saints, especially a big one like the 6-foot-6, 264-pound Davenport, who can be a true 4-3 defensive end. I’ve had edge rusher ranked as New Orleans’ No. 1 need for the past two years, and it’s the kind of impact position that can push a contender over http://www.ravenshopfootballofficial.com/JAVORIUS-ALLEN-JERSEY-CHEAP.html the top. Biggest question: The price tag is obviously the question mark -- the Saints dropped one of the biggest bombshells on this year’s draft by trading two first-rounders and a fifth-rounder to move up from No. 27 to No. 14. Also, Davenport is considered a bit of a raw developmental prospect coming from the University of Texas-San Antonio, though he was projected to go around this spot in the draft. -- Mike Triplett Why they did it: As dominant as the Raiders' offensive line has shown it can be, there is a weakness at right tackle, and Pro Bowl left tackle Donald Penn will turn 35 on Friday. Miller is a fourth-year junior who was the http://www.officialauthenticbroncostore.com/Nike-Bennie-Fowler-Jersey.html Bruins’ starter at right tackle in 2016, before moving to left tackle last season to protect Josh Rosen’s blind side. Tom Cable, the former Eric Tomlinson Jersey Raiders coach who is returning to Oakland under Jon Gruden as the offensive line coach, is absolutely digging this pick -- even if Miller is more of a project than a Day 1 starter -- especially with division rival Denver adding Bradley Chubb. Biggest question: The Raiders signed Breno Giacomini in free agency, a year after drafting David Sharpe, two years after drafting Vadal Alexander. So who goes? -- Paul Gutierrez Why they did it: Edmunds, who was considered by some to be a top-10 talent in the draft, was slipping down the board. Buffalo traded one of its two third-round picks (No. 65) and the No. 22 pick to move up six spots to No. 16, where they ended Edmunds’ fall. They also acquired a fifth-round pick (No. 154) from Baltimore. Edmunds is a long, athletic linebacker who can play several spots. He projects to start somewhere in the Bills’ 4-3, depending on how they shuffle players around. Biggest question: The Bills began the day with six picks in the first three rounds, the product of several trades since last year that gave them some of the most draft capital in the league. They used almost all of that capital to trade up for Edmunds and quarterback Josh Allen. Barring further trades, that leaves Buffalo with an 80-selection gap until their next pick, No. 96 in the third round. That is a big void for a team that could use help at several positions. -- Mike Rodak Why they did it: The Chargers lost safety Tre Boston in free agency, then had one of the best athletes in the draft slip to No. 17 in James. The Bolts have been looking for a long-term answer at the safety position since Eric Weddle left at the end of the 2015 season, and they appear to have their answer. Biggest question: James will be tabbed to play a Kam Chancellor-type role in defensive coordinator Gus Bradley’s scheme. However, Jahleel Addae already fills that position for the Chargers at strong safety, so it will be interesting to see if James can play some free safety. James worked out with one of Bradley’s former players, Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, Cam Fowler Youth jersey during the lead-up to the draft. -- Eric D. Williams Why they did it: They needed big-time help in the secondary. Yes, they signed veterans Tramon Williams and Davon House in free agency. But after trading 2015 first-round pick Damarious Randall to the Browns last month, they had a void in the secondary, even after they drafted cornerback Kevin King with their top overall pick last year (No. 33 overall). Biggest question: Is Alexander tall enough? He measured just 5-foot-10¼ at the scouting combine. Pro Football Hall of Fame general manager Ron Wolf had a rule that he wouldn’t take a DB under 5-foot-11 after he made the mistake of taking Terrell Buckley (5-foot-10) with his very first pick as the Packers GM in 1992. New GM Brian Gutekunst, who was hired by Wolf, wasn’t scared away by Alexander’s height after trading back from No. 14 overall, where he had the chance to take Marcus Davenport, Tremaine Edmunds or Derwin James. -- Rob Demovsky cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys from china cheap jerseys from china

As general manager Brandon Beane said in his


pre-draft news conference, it is the job of a GM to find a franchise quarterback -- and the Bills hope they have in Allen. He is the highest-selected quarterback in franchise history, surpassing Jim Kelly, who was taken as No. 14 in 1983. Allen is a project who likely will compete with AJ McCarron http://www.officialbengalsfootballstore.com/YOUTH+RYAN+HEWITT+JERSEY for the starting job http://www.pacersprostore.com/WOMENS-JOE-YOUNG-JERSEY.html in training camp. Men's Reebok Michael Hutchinson Premier Navy Blue Home NHL Jersey: Winnipeg Jets #34 Biggest question: The Bills were patient and waited for Allen to slide to No. 7 when he was projected in some cases to be drafted higher, and they kept their No. 22 overall pick in their trade with Tampa Bay. But with Josh Rosen still on the board, picking Allen – considered much more of a wild card -- will be a move that could decide Beane’s tenure as GM. -- Mike Rodak Why they did it: Smith is the perfect pick for Chicago. The Bears need help at inside linebacker with the offseason departure of veteran Jerrell Freeman, and Danny Trevathan -- while a solid player when healthy -- missed 11 games over the past two seasons. Smith is the best linebacker in the draft class. He possesses tremendous sideline-to-sideline speed, can run with tight ends, is a big hitter and is a leader inside the locker room. Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who coached Patrick Willis in San Francisco, has to be thrilled to add such an impact player. Biggest question: Some have questioned Smith’s size (6-foot-1 and 236 pounds at the NFL combine), but both Willis and Trevathan played http://www.chargersofficialauthenticstore.com/Nigel-Harris-Jersey at 6-foot-1 and 240 pounds. Smith is talented enough to fit in any defense. The only question -- as with many of Ryan Pace’s draft picks -- is health. The last Georgia player the Bears took in the top 10, OLB Leonard Floyd, has battled injuries throughout his short NFL career. Smith did suffer a shoulder injury in college. -- Jeff Dickerson Why they did it: This pick is as much about 2019 and beyond as it is about the immediate future. Right tackle Trent Brown is Josh Bellamy Youth jersey coming off a shoulder injury and will be a free agent after the 2018 season, and left tackle Joe Staley will be 34 in August. Protecting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is a priority, and the Niners landed the tackle they believe is the best in this draft. McGlinchey also could contribute at guard right away if Brown doesn’t return to full strength or is traded. Biggest question: Can McGlinchey succeed as a left tackle? Some evaluators believe he’s best suited on the right side because he’s not a dominant athlete. But it’s hard to imagine the Niners would have selected him here if they didn’t envision him eventually replacing Staley on the left side. Coach Kyle Shanahan’s system will undoubtedly put him to the test. -- Nick Wagoner Why they did it: The Cardinals needed their quarterback of the future -- plain and simple. There are too many questions surrounding Sam Bradford’s health, and Mike Glennon isn’t the franchise’s long-term answer. As the first round unfolded, Arizona knew it needed to move up, and that’s what it did -- trading its first-round selection, one of its third-round picks and its fifth-round pick to the Oakland Raiders for the 10th overall pick -- thus landing a young quarterback who can be the long-term solution. Biggest question: Will Rosen, who is known to be outspoken and arrogant, be able to be patient and wait for an opportunity to start? And once he gets his chance to start, how good can he be? -- Josh Weinfuss Why they did it: The Dolphins desperately needed help in pass Authentic Brandan Wright Jersey defense, especially against tight ends. No team allowed more receptions by tight ends than the Dolphins did last season (94), and Fitzpatrick can only help in the effort toward improving that stat. Biggest question: The Dolphins allowed themselves to be passed over for UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, who went one spot ahead to the Arizona Cardinals. How will that decision look in a couple of years if Ryan Tannehill can't re-establish himself as the Dolphins' starter? -- Kevin Seifert Why they did it: The Bucs had just 22 sacks last season, dead last in the NFL. Vea is a total monster at 6-foot-4 and 347 pounds; he can easily take on double-teams and plow his way into the backfield. Authentic Phoenix Suns Jersey Pair him with six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and suddenly a Bucs defense that allowed a league-high 6 yards per play and 378 yards per game last season -- both the most in the league -- has become a lot better. Biggest question: This was not a need pick but a best available pick, because the Bucs invested heavily already this offseason by signing defensive tackles Beau Allen and Mitch Unrein, and they traded for defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. Vea had 9.5 sacks in three seasons. The real question now is when will the Bucs address a secondary that surrendered 256 yards per game over the past two years, especially when they had their shot at Florida State safety Derwin James, who has drawn comparisons to Eric Berry and Sean Taylor. -- Jenna Laine http://forum.ebook-ctecky.cz/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=2806

Pros and cons for every 2018 NFL first-round draft pick


Why they did it: The Browns needed to use this pick on a quarterback, and the one they decided fits best is Mayfield. He’s small (6 feet, 5/8 inches), but he’s competitive and accurate. He plays with swagger, perhaps to the extreme, but he also completed 69.8 percent of his passes during his final season. He left Oklahoma as the Big 12 all-time leader in yards per attempt and consecutive games with a touchdown pass. He is the guy general manager John Dorsey and the Browns are committing their future to. Youth Jordan Nolan Authentic Green Adidas Jersey: NHL Buffalo Sabres #17 Salute to Service Biggest question: Mayfield bristles at comparisons to Johnny Manziel, and he and Manziel are different players on the field. But like Manziel, Mayfield is not ideal NFL quarterback size, and he has had off-field issues. The Browns must love his ability, because they have shrugged off an arrest and actions on the field that some teams would not accept. Teams generally don’t like risks with the first overall pick; this pick involves a fair amount of risk. -- Pat McManamon Why they did it: The Giants were in love with Barkley. He was the top prospect on their draft board from the get-go. He fills a major need, as they haven’t had a Pro Bowl-caliber running back since Tiki Barber. The Giants also aren’t as concerned about their future at quarterback as everybody else. They feel Eli Manning has some “years” left and Davis Webb has potential. Biggest question: Is it worth taking a running back with the Dexter McCoil Womens Jersey No. 2 overall http://www.stlouisbluesofficialonline.com/Adidas-Patrik-Berglund-Jersey pick? This is more about positional value than uncertainty with Barkley, who is a pristine prospect with impressive skills. He is 233 pounds, runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds, has tremendous balance and catches the ball well out of the backfield. But Barkley instantly becomes among the highest-paid players at his position and needs to perform at a Pro Bowl-level immediately to be worth the investment. This also happens to be an extremely deep position in this year’s draft; the Giants could have taken Authentic John Randle Jersey a quality running back in the second or third round. -- Jordan Raanan Why they did it: After decades of draft misses and veteran Band-Aids, it was time once again to make a bold move to end the maddening pattern of quarterback mediocrity. When Darnold unexpectedly fell to them at No. 3, the Jets pounced on the most complete quarterback prospect in the draft. His innate skill as a passer, combined with his mobility, provides hope Kyle Fuller Womens Jersey for an offense that hasn’t cracked the top 10 in yards since Brett Favre’s one-year rental in 2008. Biggest question: Are they getting the 2016 Darnold or the 2017 Darnold? In the span of a year, he went from The Next Great Quarterback to a turnover machine. He has some bad habits that need to be addressed, and that will take time, raising questions about how long it’ll take to get him ready to play. His arrival means the end of the Christian Hackenberg era, which never started. Hackenberg and Bryce Petty are likely goners, with incumbent Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater set to compete for the starting job. It could be a redshirt year for Darnold. -- Rich Cimini Why they did it: This pick screams need over best player available, as the Browns have significant need at corner. Ward had better be good, because in selecting him, the Browns passed up on Minkah Fitzpatrick of Alabama and defensive end Bradley Chubb of NC State, both considered among the draft’s premier players. Ward was considered a good player, but the value of his selection at fourth overall will be questioned. Biggest question: Like first overall pick Baker Mayfield, it’s size. He’s 5-foot-11 and 183 pounds, which is not a big frame for the position and the press coverage he’ll be asked to play. In bypassing Fitzpatrick and Chubb, though, the Browns have placed a lot of attention and pressure on Ward, who will have to live up to his selection at a spot few expected http://www.officialcardinalsfootballauthentic.com/Jermaine-Gresham-Jersey.html him to go. -- Pat McManamon Why they did it: Are you kidding? Chubb is the best edge player on the board, and the Broncos now have a potential walk-in starter to put into a pass rush that would include Von Miller, Shane Ray and Derek Wolfe. Chubb had 26 tackles for loss last past season, and he is a high-effort player who should transition quickly to the NFL. Biggest question: There are few riddles about Chubb’s game, but the Broncos will have to fit him into their 3-4 scheme. Chubb, with a 4.65 40-yard dash, doesn’t have the elite speed at outside linebacker and is not as big as some defensive ends. But this is a proficient pass-rusher who puts the Broncos' D back in the fast lane. -- Jeff Legwold Why they did it: Andrew Luck. The Colts have spent the first six years of Luck’s NFL career trying to put an offensive line around their franchise quarterback. Luck has missed 28 games over the past three seasons because of injuries; he has been sacked 156 times in his career. The Colts gave up an NFL-high 56 sacks last season. Now the foundation of the offensive line is starting to come together. Nelson will join an offensive line that features left tackle Anthony Castonzo and center Ryan Kelly. wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys china cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys

The chances of Barkley turning into a franchise back


Barkley is regarded as a truly stratospheric running back prospect and as close to a can't-miss proposition as you'll see in the draft. He has no obvious weak points or off-field concerns. He has been called the best running back prospect since Peterson. But as Scott Kacsmar pointed out, that has been true of Elliott, Fournette, Todd Gurley and Trent Richardson. Richardson was seen as a similarly safe pick with no significant flaws when he was drafted in 2012, but he turned out to be a sub-replacement NFL back. Women's Darryl Strawberry Authentic Royal Blue Majestic Jersey: MLB New York Mets #18 Alternate Road Cool Base We're often too confident about the top running http://www.authenticlosangelesangelsshop.com/Brandon-Phillips-Jersey back prospect in a given draft class turning into the best halfback from his class at the professional level. By my count, looking at the past 20 drafts, the first running back drafted has turned into the best runner from that class only seven times. That's similar to rates at other positions. The first quarterback taken in each draft over the past 20 years has turned into its best passer five times. With edge rushers, it's six times in 20 years. Fanatics Branded NHL Youth Alex Goligoski Burgundy Red Home Breakaway Jersey - #33 Arizona Coyotes We still don't know about recent drafts, and it's a little unfair to compare a back taken in the top three picks to someone such as Bishop Sankey, who fell to the 54th pick of the 2014 draft before being the first back off the board. Let's take a look at the truly world-class running back prospects to try to find similar players to Barkley. It's unlikely that Barkley will fall past the Broncos at No. 5, given that the Giants, Browns and Broncos could all theoretically draft a running back or trade their pick to a team interested in Barkley. How often do top-five backs turn into superstars? There have been 13 backs drafted in the top five in the past 20 years. Six of them -- Richardson, Cedric Benson, Bush, Curtis Enis, Darren McFadden and Cadillac Williams -- failed to make a Pro Bowl before their NFL careers ended. They have to be considered disappointments, though it's probably unfair to lump Bush into that mix. Three backs made it to one Pro Bowl: Ronnie Brown, Jamal Lewis and Ricky Williams. Likewise, Brown probably doesn't belong in this group, given that he finished his career with 5,391 rushing yards, and Lewis and Paul Thompson Authentic Jersey Williams each topped 10,000 over the course of their careers. It's also too early to judge Elliott and Fournette. There are only two backs from this group who made it to multiple Pro Bowls and have Hall of Fame credentials. LaDainian Tomlinson is enshrined in Canton, and Edgerrin James is a two-time finalist and has a reasonable shot of making it one day. Of these 13 backs, I would say that four teams -- the Chargers (with Tomlinson), Colts (James), Ravens (Lewis) and Saints (Bush) -- ended up with a franchise back, while New Orleans was at least able to turn its disastrous trade for Williams into two first-round picks after three seasons, though one of them was conditional. Let's say five teams found franchise running backs. That's not enough of a successful rate to trust that Barkley is a lock to turn into a perennial superstar. If we look back 10 more years, we'll find two more Hall of Famers (Marshall Faulk and Barry Sanders) and two total washouts (Ki-Jana Carter and Blair Thomas) alongside Garrison Hearst, who falls somewhere in between. Do the same analysis for quarterbacks, and you'll get roughly similar results. Of the 27 passers drafted in the top five since 1998, three (Philip Rivers and the Manning brothers) are likely to make the Hall of Fame. It's still too http://www.chargersofficialfootballshop.com/Nike-Dexter-Mccoil-Jersey.html early to judge a handful of those quarterbacks, but at least half of those teams came away with a guy they considered their franchise passer past their rookie deal. If the chances of a highly drafted running back and a quarterback turning into a superstar are roughly similar, and it appears that they are, you simply can't justify taking the running back. There's too much upside being left on the table by not drafting a passer, given how much a good signal-caller makes relative to the cost of the second overall pick. The only exception would be if ...Given that Gettleman has suggested that he expects Eli to be the quarterback in 2018, it seems as if the Giants are at least operating under the assumption that their longtime starter isn't going anywhere anytime soon. So let's ask that question: How much longer should the Giants expect Manning to play? The 37-year-old did complete another healthy season. But with his top two receivers missing most of the year because of injury and his offensive line more of a Matt Slauson Youth jersey theoretical construct than actual protection, his numbers weren't pretty. Jaromir Jagr Authentic Jersey Manning averaged just 6.1 yards per pass, the lowest mark he has posted since his rookie season, while his passer rating and QBR fell for the third consecutive season. By the era-adjusted net http://www.authenticwildstore.com/devan-dubnyk-jersey_c-432.html yards per attempt (NY/A+) statistic, Manning's mark of 83 was well below the league average of 100. When you compare him to the 29 other quarterbacks who started 12 games or more during their age-36 seasons, that 83 NY/A+ figure ranks ... 30th out of 30. Granted, it's a list that includes 11 Hall of Famers and a handful of no-doubters who will be in once they're eligible, but last is last. Excluding active players, the retired quarterbacks started an average of 18.7 games over the rest of their career. The 26 passers combined to produce a total of just 13 above-average full seasons as starters (12-plus starts with a NY/A+ over 100) after turning 37. Tom Brady and Drew Brees have outdone those marks, and it's fair to wonder whether quarterbacks are likely to last longer now than they would have 30 years ago, but the evidence suggests that Eli doesn't have much time left as a viable starter. cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping

Le'Veon Bell will end up resetting the running


back market next offseason, but it probably would take an MVP-caliber season for the Steelers star to get something in excess of $15 million per year. That's what Mike Glennon got from the Bears in free agency last offseason. No veteran starting quarterback on a multiyear deal will have a lower average annual salary than Bell, and he might be the only running back in football making more than $8 million per season. Women's Reggie Lewis Swingman Gray Nike Jersey: NBA Boston Celtics #35 City Edition Enter Barkley. The draft's second overall pick is locked into a four-year deal for something in the range of $32 million this offseason, all of which is fully guaranteed at signing. Before taking an NFL snap, Barkley would have more guaranteed money than any other running back in the NFL. He'd be tied with McCoy for the largest annual average salary for any running back on a multiyear deal. His four-year cash -- the Womens Michael Roberts Jersey money he would be in line Womens Brandon Davidson Jersey to pocket over the next four seasons -- would be third in the league behind that of McCoy and Devonta Freeman. NHL Men's San Jose Sharks Black Rink Warrior Pullover Hoodie Let's http://www.nflbillsofficialauthentic.com/Nike-Charles-Clay-Jersey.html run the same table for Barkley that we ran for Wentz and assume a similarly favorable outcome. Barkley's $32 million is guaranteed, and former NFL executive Joe Banner projects that the running back would be in line to make about $13 million for his fifth-year option in 2022. Let's assume that Barkley plays at a Pro Bowl-level for each of the five years of his rookie deal without getting injured. Let's also assume that the market value of top-tier running backs will rise over the next five years by $1 million per season, despite the fact that their price tag has come down over the past five seasons, as Warren Sharp pointed out. As a player entering the league as one of the highest-paid players at his position, even a very rosy outcome for Barkley has him essentially living up to Womens Brenden Dillon Jersey his contract without providing any excess value: The numbers above are obviously estimates, but you get the idea. Because Barkley is entering the league as one of the highest-paid backs in football, it's impossible for him to deliver anywhere near the sort of marginal value that would come from a rookie quarterback. The same would be true for a defensive end such as Chubb and would even qualify for a guard such as Nelson, given that top-tier guards now comfortably make more than similarly pedigreed running backs. That's without http://www.authenticnuggetstore.com/Dikembe_Mutombo_Jersey even considering that running backs get injured more frequently than players at any other position. While the NFL has decided that Pro Bowl-caliber running backs are worth about only $8 million or so in this market, it doesn't necessarily follow that those backs should be worth that little. It's at least theoretically possible that the NFL could be underestimating how much running backs are worth to an offense and systematically underpaying guys such as McCoy and Freeman. If that were true, Barkley would be more of a bargain than his status within the running back salary structure as a potential second overall pick suggests. While Gettleman has said that the league's devaluation of running backs is "comical," the problem is that there isn't much evidence suggesting that the NFL doesn't value running backs well. The market correction for halfbacks over the past 15 years is borne out by their shorter career spans and the success that teams such as the Patriots have had without committing to a franchise-caliber running back on a long-term contract. Of the past 10 Super Bowl winners, only two -- the Ravens with Ray Rice and the Seahawks with Marshawn Lynch -- were built around backs on top-tier multiyear contracts. The Saints had former second overall pick Reggie Bush in a rotation at halfback, but most of these teams were built around players on rookie deals or backs with middle-class contracts. Furthermore, teams haven't really suffered when they've lost their star backs. The Cowboys weren't the same without Elliott, but the Jaguars' offense was better while Fournette was sidelined last season. In 2015, offenses around the league lost star backs such as Bell, Lynch and Arian Foster and actually improved. The majority of big-money deals for running backs in recent years also haven't worked out. Carolina spent years desperately restructuring the deals Marty Hurney gave Stewart and DeAngelo Williams. Chris Johnson failed to make it back to the Pro Bowl after signing his extension. DeMarco Murray's deal in Philadelphia led him to be traded after one season. Even Adrian Peterson's six-year deal (which was restructured along the way) mixed one MVP season with two lost seasons and a third marred by injury. Lynch and McCoy have had the best outcomes among veteran backs since the current CBA was signed. It's possible that the market could have overcorrected and might undervalue backs, but there isn't much evidence of that. The chances of a quarterback taken with the second overall pick turning into a franchise quarterback would have to be somewhere around 30 percent. The economic upside for a quarterback is clear, but if Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen has only a 30 percent shot of turning into the next Wentz, then the expected return for the Giants could be closer to $37 million than $125 million, which would http://49ersauthenticofficialstore.com/frank-gore-jersey_c-342.html level the playing field. (The valuation process is more complicated than that, but it works for the purposes of this example http://foodtube.net/profiles/blogs/with-penguins-one-win-from-another-cup-sidney-crosby-is-still

Should the Giants really draft Saquon Barkley?


The Cleveland Browns are going to select a quarterback with the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. What happens next will begin to tell the story of this year's class. The New York Giants might draft a quarterback. They might trade the No. 2 pick. They might select one of Dave Gettleman's much-beloved hog mollies, such as Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson or NC State defensive end Bradley Chubb. Fanatics Branded Derek Sanderson Breakaway Men's Jersey - NHL Boston Bruins #16 Black Home The most popular pick for the Giants, though, is Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. Anyone who watches two minutes of Barkley's highlights can understand why Gettleman might want to keep the 21-year-old in the Northeast, as the tape suggests that he is a transcendent talent. He produced a nation-high Will Sutton Authentic Jersey 3,801 yards from scrimmage the past two seasons, and his 45 touchdowns tied him with Devin Singletary of Florida Atlantic atop the http://www.authenticbluejaysstore.com/Authentic-Ja-Happ-Jersey FBS leaderboard. #21 Nike Swingman Vlade Divac Men's Blue NBA Jersey - Sacramento Kings City Edition There's every reason to believe Barkley will be an excellent running back. The Giants have had six different backs rack up 100 carries over the past five seasons without finding a replacement for Ahmad Bradshaw, and they're currently projected to run out the duo of Wayne Gallman and Jonathan Stewart next season. Every team could use a Saquon Barkley. The Giants could really use one. Should the Giants draft Barkley at No. 2? I don't think it's a great idea. That opinion has nothing to do with Barkley's considerable talent. I'm just not sure that the economics of the NFL and the running back market make it a smart decision to use the second overall pick on any rusher. Even if Barkley turns into a superstar, the Giants will be settling for a low-ceiling option if they draft him at No. 2. To understand why that's the case, you have to look at both the recent draft history and the economics of the NFL under the current collective bargaining agreement. Part of the value of the draft is selecting players who will make a fraction of their true market value over the course of their rookie contract. Take Carson Wentz, who played at an MVP level in his second season before suffering a torn ACL. If Wentz were an unrestricted free agent this offseason, the 25-year-old would have no trouble finding a contract that would pay him $30 million per year for the next three seasons. Instead of giving Wentz $90 million, if you prorate Wentz's signing bonus, the Eagles will be responsible for a total of $15.7 million over the next two years before picking up the quarterback's fifth-year option, which will be somewhere in the range of $22.8 million. (They could even franchise Wentz for another year at $27.4 million or so, but let's stop there.) There's no stat that translates player performance into money, but we can use the current quarterback market to estimate what a top-tier passer gets in free agency to illuminate just how much of a bargain Wentz has been and will be if he continues to play at a high level. The top of the market was worth $25 million in 2017, will be Howie Kendrick Womens Jersey somewhere around $27.5 million in 2018 and should hit $30 million when Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan sign their new deals. If Wentz continues to play Kevin Hayes Youth jersey at a Pro Bowl level and is one of the five best quarterbacks in football, he'll save the Eagles more than $75 million: Of course, Wentz doesn't have to play at that high of a level to justify his current contract. The first four years of his deal amount to a total of $26.7 million, which is an average of $6.7 million per season. That's slightly more than the league's better backups will receive on their deals. (For example, Nick Foles originally signed a two-year, $11 million deal with the Eagles before renegotiating it this month.) Even if you factor in an inconsistent debut season like his 2016 campaign, the upside for the Eagles is getting a quarterback worth $95 million while paying $26.7 million over the first four years. Even if you think Wentz has only a 30 percent chance of turning into that kind of http://www.pittsburghpenguinsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Bryan-Trottier-Jersey superstar going http://www.lionsfootballofficialauthenticstore.com/LIONS-DARREN-FELLS-JERSEY into the draft, you're right to take a shot on a quarterback with the second overall pick. The numbers aren't and can't be exact, but you get the idea: The upside for drafting a quarterback is getting an absolute bargain. When you do the same math for running backs, though, the numbers aren't anywhere near as appealing. There are only 11 active four-plus-year contracts for running backs. You'll notice something interesting about the five largest active contracts for halfbacks: Unlike rookie quarterbacks, who don't come close to making what the most expensive players at their position earn, highly drafted running backs such as Ezekiel Elliott and Leonard Fournette enter the league as some of the highest-paid players at their position. Elliott would probably top LeSean McCoy and Clyde Drexler Womens Jersey make more than $8 million per year if he became a free agent, but upper-echelon running backs aren't coming close to the $25 million to $30 million annual going rate for signal-callers. cheap jerseys from china wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys from china wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys from china

Which players give their teams the best return


When looking for the worst contracts in baseball, examining massive free-agent deals helps narrow down the potential list of albatrosses. To find the best contracts, free agency is rarely a help. When players have their choice of teams and can create a market, the highest bidder often prevails. To strike a good deal for a team, front offices target players further away from free agency, offering life-changing money in exchange for giving away those precious free-agent opportunities. Premier CCM Men's Mike Modano Green Jersey - NHL #9 Dallas Stars Throwback What follows are the best contracts for teams considering money owed and expected performance. Players who are currently in the arbitration process -- such as Kris Bryant -- or have yet to reach arbitration -- such as Carlos Correa and Shohei Ohtani -- are not considered here as they have yet to sign a long-term deal with their teams. THOU SHALT PLAY music. It's less like one of baseball's infinite unwritten rules and more like a commandment. For eight months straight, a group of grown men spends upward of 10 hours a day together in close quarters. Half that time is spent out on the field, stretching, preparing and, http://www.officialauthenticredskinsstore.com/womens_mason_foster_jersey of course, playing the actual game. The other half is spent in the locker room. Getting dressed, getting ready, getting focused. Playing cards, checking phones, killing time. Talking to reporters, talking to teammates, talking to themselves. Through it all, songs -- and the guys who play them -- are the clubhouse constant. Diamond DJs come in all forms, ranging from grizzled vets such as Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford to wide-eyed young'uns such as A's third baseman Matt Chapman. From All-Stars such as Francisco Lindor to backups such as Royals catcher Drew Butera. From Cy Young starters such as David Price to closers such as Pittsburgh's Felipe Vasquez. But regardless of who's running the show, there's one common theme: The show must go on. For some guys, it's about getting your mind right. "You gotta have some music to get ready for the war," says Dee Gordon, who ran Miami's sound machine before getting traded to Seattle this offseason. For others, it's http://www.authenticpittsburghpenguins.com/authentic-jake-guentzel-jersey about greasing the wheels and putting a room full of alpha males at ease. "You need it because silence in the clubhouse is awkward," says Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez, who audits the audio in Washington. "It helps you interact with your teammates." For Lindor, the Puerto Rican-born shortstop who moved to Florida when he was 12, it's about more than merely interacting. "Music helps you bring together different nationalities. It can unite a whole world." MUSIC IS SO crucial to clubhouse culture that players will do almost anything to keep it playing. Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin has been known to use a dry-erase board, on which he scribbles the weekly schedule, each day featuring a different pregame genre so that everyone is happy and the music never stops. On a road trip to Camden Yards last year, Rangers Bruce Irvin Womens Jersey DJ Elvis Andrus accidentally left his beloved Monster Rave Box at home in Texas, so he went to a Best Buy in Baltimore and purchased a humongous Sony receiver to use as a stand-in. Notoriously stoic Nats hurler Stephen Strasburg was fed up with the lack of volume in the team's clubhouse, so midway through last season, he took it upon himself to hit the Bose store in McLean, Virginia's Tysons Galleria, where he dropped four digits on a sleek, black, audio tower that became the team's go-to gear for the remainder of the season. Even when the games don't matter, the music still does. At Blue Jays spring training in early March, there was a notice posted on the bulletin board one day, saying there would be no music during batting practice. Something about standardized testing at a neighboring elementary school. Josh Donaldson apparently didn't get the memo and proceeded to lug a mammoth Denon wireless receiver out onto the field. Thirty seconds later, with Lil Uzi Vert blaring clear across the town of Dunedin, manager John Gibbons marched right over to the big black box, grabbed it and wheeled it Michael Taylor Jersey back to the locker room. Donaldson went ballistic, following his skipper into the clubhouse and hollering at him the entire way. OF THE THREE movements comprising the constant concerto that is clubhouse music, it's the postgame piece -- the win song -- that resonates most among players. That's not to say that Act 1 (pre-batting practice) and Act 2 (after BP but before the game) aren't important, but it's the victory verse that sticks in guys' heads and hearts. "The win song is the only time that everybody's in on it," says recently retired pitcher Bronson Arroyo, who was the Reds' DJ last season and spent much of his 16-year career curating clubhouse playlists. "It's the only time that everybody's there, present tense, with the music. Any other time, guys could be in the weight room, in the shower, in the cage. But when you win, it's a celebration and everybody's present, right there in the music."Of course, it doesn't hurt that the win song is the one that gets the most airplay. "It's the most important because it's the one we're going to hear most often," says San Francisco's Crawford. Even on a cellar-dwelling team like the Giants, whose 64 W's were tied for the fewest in the majors last season, the win song still gets played dozens and dozens of times. That's why it's crucial to find just the right tune. It's a trial-and-error process that can't be rushed, one that requires input from all corners of the clubhouse. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys

Thunder on the brink of elimination after Jazz


SALT LAKE CITY -- As the Oklahoma City Thunder shot free throws in the second quarter, a Utah Jazz fan seated baseline waved his cardboard Ricky Rubio cutout head on a stick. The stick snapped in half, and Rubio's head went flying onto the court. Women's Nike Jacksonville Jaguars #68 Earl Watford Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey Russell Westbrook popped up off the end of the bench and walked onto the floor, picking up Rubio's cardboard head. He acted as if he were going http://www.footballchiefsofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_PHILLIP_GAINES_JERSEY.html to crumple it up and then shot a grin at the Jazz fans as they booed him. After proclaiming following Game 3 that he was going to shut down Rubio, Westbrook came out ready to back it up, picking Rubio up full-court, scrambling back to get in a deep defensive stance and clapping at him as they lined up to go one-on-one. It was on -- or so it seemed to be. Men's Nike Elite Terrance West Baltimore Ravens White Jersey: NFL #28 Road Westbrook picked up his first foul by inadvertently tripping Rubio and raised his hand immediately to claim the foul. A few minutes later, Westbrook picked up full-court again, and this time Rubio sold some contact to hand Westbrook a second foul some 90 feet from the basket. A third foul came when Westbrook swatted Rubio's fadeaway jumper into another galaxy but was called for some contact. With Westbrook staying in late into the second quarter, Rubio stepped in front of Westbrook and drew a fourth foul on a charge on the perimeter. As Westbrook walked to the bench with a minute left, smoke fuming off of him as even Mitt Romney taunted him courtside with four fingers in the air, much like in Game 3, the Jazz closed the half with a massive boost of momentum. "We Bill Barber Jersey just stayed within ourselves," Donovan Mitchell said. "We always say the strength of our team is the strength of our team. I said this morning we're not really worried about one individual comment. I think if we get caught up in that it takes us out of our own game, and our play showed tonight that we really just focused on each other and made the right plays when we http://www.authenticflyersite.com/-14-sean-couturier-jersey_c-493.html needed to." Westbrook accomplished his mission, at least statistically, in the first half. Rubio was shut down, with just six points on 1-of-5 shooting. But it was the gamesmanship by Rubio that bested Westbrook, using Westbrook's hyper-charged energy against him to put him into foul trouble and neutralize his aggressiveness. After the fourth foul, Westbrook just wasn't the same player as he protected against his fifth. "Little bit. Little bit," Westbrook said of his approach changing because of foul trouble. "Obviously, not being able to be on the ball takes a little bit of aggression away, but things like that happen within the game and you've got to figure out how to play with it." While the Jazz opened the game with a dynamite third quarter (outscoring OKC 12-2 in the first three minutes), everything changed in those closing minutes of the first half. Utah has a 3-1 lead after a 113-96 win, and the Thunder are officially on the ropes. Womens Taylor Hall Jersey It's not about me and him," Westbrook said when asked if his aggressiveness with Rubio backfired. "Let's get past that. We're done with that." It's not all that complicated, what the Jazz have done to the Thunder in the series. OKC is losing a simple math problem. Utah generates better, more consistent shots from Bronson Kaufusi Authentic Jersey efficiency areas, while the Thunder basically cross their fingers that their superstar players have a good night. Even when the looks have been clean -- like they were for Carmelo Anthony -- they aren't going down. Per ESPN Stats & Information tracking, the Thunder went 22 minutes, 9 seconds of game time without recording an assist (between made baskets at 10:33 of the second quarter and 0:24 of the third quarter). In that span, they attempted nine shots with an assist opportunity, compared to 27 attempts http://www.officialgiantsfootballs.com/Jonathan-Casillas-Jersey-Cheap that didn't have an assist opportunity. "We were aggressive. We were in attack mode," Paul George said. "We were aggressive. We missed shots. I don't think all season long we've finished a game with only five 3-pointers. We missed shots." Westbrook hasn't looked himself, and he played with black kinetic tape all over his upper body. Billy Donovan says Womens Tyson Ross Jersey he's fine -- or at least he hasn't been told of any injury -- and Westbrook has fully participated in practices and shoot-arounds. But he struggled shooting again, hitting 6-of-17 from the floor for 20 points, plus 10 rebounds and 3 assists. George finished with 32 on 9-of-21, but with Anthony hitting just 5-of-18, including 0-of-6 from 3, and with the Thunder unable to produce consistent stops, that wasn't cutting it. It isn't a coincidence that Westbrook finished with three assists and didn't have any in the first quarter. here was so much talk of the Jazz's playoff experience, or lack thereof, but in Game 4, it was the Thunder who unwound. The intensity in the opening six minutes was off the charts, with technical fouls and light scuffles breaking out, but Utah held its poise while the Thunder took hurried shots and picked up tough fouls. Joe Ingles (20 points) lit the fuse with a flurry of 3s in the first half, and Mitchell (33 points on 13-of-28 shooting) threw the closing haymakers. As the Thunder know firsthand, a series doesn't end at 3-1. But the way the Jazz have outclassed the Thunder in the past two games sure makes it feel like it should. Game 5 is Wednesday in Oklahoma City, but the Thunder will take the floor having talked tough but returning home red-faced with their season on the line. wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys

The Titans probably will want to trade back if the board


plays out like this to increase their low draft capital, but in this scenario they nab Hubbard for immediate and long-term pass-rush help. Hubbard fits the Titans’ desires for versatility, intelligence, instincts and play speed over timed speed. Titans coach Mike Vrabel also recruited Hubbard to Ohio State when he was a Buckeyes assistant. Hubbard gives the Titans a talented understudy to be groomed by veterans Brian Orakpo (who will be 32 at start of the season) and Derrick Morgan (29), both of whom are entering the final year of their contracts. -- Cameron Wolfe Men's Nike Detroit Lions #77 Cornelius Lucas Blue Team Color Vapor Untouchable Elite Player NFL Jersey The Falcons need a big, athletic body on the defensive line alongside nose tackle Grady Jarrett, and the 6-2, 311-pound Payne fits the description. Although Taven Bryan might be the most disruptive and Mo Hurst might be the best http://www.officialcardinalsbaseball.com/authentic-37-keith-hernandez-jersey.html scheme fit, the Falcons would settle for the former Crimson Tide star because he brings a massive, strong presence against the run and helps free up linebackers to make plays. The Falcons lost Dontari Poe (Carolina) in free agency, so Payne can Brad Nortman Authentic Jersey step right into the rotation. They could live with Payne being more of a nose tackle because Jarrett is versatile enough to play the 3-technique and has the quickness and counter moves to pressure quarterbacks. -- Vaughn McClure Youth Replica Majestic John Jaso Grey Road Jersey - #28 MLB Pittsburgh Pirates Cool Base Receiver is no longer a “must” for the Saints after they signed Cameron Meredith and Brandon Coleman this month. But they could absolutely find room for a player whom ESPN’s Todd McShay called “the clear No. 1 wideout in this draft.” The Saints had the NFL’s No. 2 offense last year, but they ranked 19th on third downs and could use another reliable pass-catcher at receiver or tight end. Some of Ridley’s testing numbers at the combine could ding his draft stock a little bit, but he probably won’t fall all the way to No. 27. The 6-foot, 189-pounder showed some dynamic playmaking ability at Alabama and is widely considered a terrific route Brooks Laich Youth jersey runner. -- Mike Triplett The Steelers are eyeing inside linebacker or defensive line help, but the high-end playmakers at that position will be gone. They like LSU running back Derrius Guice but are still hoping for a long-term deal with Le'Veon Bell. So the Steelers go with value here, grabbing an uber-athletic center fielder who will bolster the secondary. They like this player and met with him during the pre-draft process. -- Jeremy Fowler The Jaguars led the NFL in rushing attempts (527), yards (2,262) and average per game (141.4), but their production dropped off significantly over the final six games. They averaged 51.3 yards rushing less per game in Weeks 12-17 than they did in the first 11 weeks and surpassed 100 yards rushing just twice in their final six games. Leonard Fournette ran for 1,040 yards as a rookie, but he only averaged 3.9 yards per carry. Inconsistency in the interior offensive line play was an issue the Jaguars needed to address and they did it by signing G Andrew Norwell in free agency. Hernandez is a powerful blocker who can take over on the right side. It's possible the Vikings end up trading down with a quarterback-needy team eyeing their selection at http://www.authenticrangersstore.com/martin-st--louis-jersey_c-425.html 30. If they stay put, the 30th overall pick is essentially a second-round pick by virtue. Guard is the most pressing need for Minnesota entering the draft. While the Vikings certainly can fill that void when they pick in the second round given the strength of this year's class, a player such as Ragnow will be "so far gone" at that point, as one league source put it. Injuries have been a problem on the interior between Nick Easton and Pat Elflein, so going after a player with a similar build and potential durability issues is likely something the Vikings want to avoid. The elite offensive lines that run similar blocking schemes feature players that look like Lane Johnson. That's what Minnesota wants. Ragnow's 6-foot-5 frame and tremendous length is a huge sell for the Vikings http://www.officialcarolinahurricanes.com/Adidas-Sebastian-Aho-Jersey as they look for Joe Berger's replacement at right guard. Ragnow was ranked one of the top centers in the draft but has the ability to swing over to guard and fill in as a Day 1 starter. -- Courtney Cronin The Patriots had starting left tackle Nate Solder depart in free agency, and while they have in-house options in LaAdrian Waddle, Antonio Garcia and Cole Croston, they still have a need for another layer on the depth chart. And if that player could become a long-term answer, it would be even better for them. Miller has drawn some comparisons to Solder in terms of his height and length, so he has some of the Craig Hartsburg Authentic Jersey traits that the Patriots would view as worthy of a first-round choice. He was also one of the team’s 30 in-house visitors leading into the draft, which could be viewed as the team still having an interest in him at a late point in the draft process. -- Mike Reiss Trading out looks mighty tempting right now. The Eagles are tied for a league low with six picks and don’t own a second- or third-rounder. With the likes of safety Justin Reid and wide receivers Courtland Sutton, D.J. Moore and Christian Kirk still on the board, executive VP of football operations Howie Roseman knows he can move back into the second round, acquire more draft capital and still land a good player. If the Eagles stand pat, Guice will be among the top options. He has fans in both the coaching and personnel departments and would make a backfield currently led by Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement downright scary. -- Tim McManus http://100trucspour.forumcrea.com/viewtopic.php?pid=29216#p29216

A Milwaukee restaurant issued a public apology on


Sunday night after a social media post revealed it did not Carson Palmer Authentic Jersey accommodate Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo in time BelAir Cantina, a chain of six Mexican restaurants in the Milwaukee area, said in a statement on its Twitter and Facebook pages that it was sorry it wasn't able to seat the "Greek Freak" right away when he stopped into one of its restaurants after Sunday's victory over the Celtics, resulting in his exit. Youth Delvin Breaux Limited Olive Nike Jersey: NFL New Orleans Saints #40 2017 Salute to Service "We are very sorry we weren't able to seat Giannis Antetokounmpo in as timely manner as we Kavon Frazier Authentic Jersey would have hoped," the statement said. "The Milwaukee Bucks' big win, thanks to his tip in and the team's great play, combined with today's spring weather had people turn out in droves to celebrate and we had quite a wait. We were honored he came in for a celebratory meal, and wish we would have accommodated him right away." Men's Adidas Mark Scheifele Authentic Camo NHL Jersey: Winnipeg Jets #55 Veterans Day Practice SALT LAKE CITY -- The ball bounced high off the back of the rim after Joe Ingles launched a wing 3-pointer in the closing moments of the third quarter. Batted around a time or two, Ricky Rubio finally tracked it down near midcourt and turned to glance at the clock. Without much time, he pulled one leg up and fired on a 28-footer runner at the buzzer. Splash. It was that kind of night for Rubio. Against the NBA's triple-double king, it was Rubio who hit the magical trio of round numbers -- 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists -- outplaying Russell Westbrook, who had a strangely uncharacteristic off night (14 points on 5-of-17 shooting with eight turnovers) as the Utah Jazz took Game 3 over the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-102 to go up 2-1 in the series. The Jazz have built a roster focused around team and togetherness with the mindset that any player can lift the group at any moment. With the way rookie Donovan Mitchell has exploded on his way to superstardom, it seemed like maybe the Jazz were outgrowing that. But with their suffocating defense always present, and with Mitchell hitting some foul-trouble issues, it was Rubio who answered the call. The critical moments of Rubio's career night came in the second quarter when the Thunder were taking control on both ends, going up by 12 and flashing some dominance on both sides of the ball. Not much was really happening for Utah, and it wasn't as if a light bulb clicked on over Rubio's absolutely sensational samurai ponytail -- it was more a reluctant takeover, with him accepting the open, midrange jumpers the Thunder presented and riding the wave of momentum from there. "I think the first two games, I wasn't being effective in the midrange area," Rubio said. "It's been something I've been working on. I felt good about, but it wasn't going in; but tonight, it felt good seeing the first couple go in. It's just the way we played. We got open shots, and it's easy to make shots when you are open." It left multiple moments throughout the night for an outrageously charged-up home crowd -- spread out in a glorious pattern of yellow, red and orange -- to chant, "Ru-bi-o!" All that was missing was him crowing back at Peter Pan.The Thunder started much better than in Games 1 and 2, with Billy Donovan making a clever chess move in the first quarter by subbing Patrick Patterson in early for Steven Adams. It was an adjustment with a clear objective of spacing the floor and pulling Rudy Gobert out of the paint. Westbrook got downhill for a layup -- something he hasn't done much in the series -- right away, and then Patterson knocked back-to-back open 3s when Gobert cheated back to the paint. The other payoff was it allowed Adams to sub back in to play against Utah's second unit and match up with Derrick Favors' minutes at center (Favors killed OKC on the glass in Game 2). The Thunder went on an 18-2 run and really seemed to have something going. It all looked pretty good and smart, and then Rubio happened. With 19 in the first half, he sparked a 20-4 run to make up a double-digit deficit. Rubio has quietly played quality offensive basketball the past couple months of the season; the Thunder weren't abandoning him -- Rubio was just making shots. And it's not a great sign http://www.authenticslightningstore.com/-17-alex-killorn-jersey_c-460.html for OKC if Rubio is going to get the better of Westbrook, especially to that degree. "He made some shots," Westbrook said of Rubio. "Too comfortable. But I'm gonna shut that s--- off next game, though. Guarantee that." Westbrook has had strange nights before, but he was noticeably passive at moments and indecisive in the paint. The Jazz have used a smart scheme to try to confuse him, deploying stunts and drops from Gobert while trying to eliminate everything at the rim. It http://www.bearsnflofficialproshop.com/cameron-meredith-jersey-for-sale-c-61.html has left Westbrook over-reading Kelvin Beachum Authentic Jersey help and leaving his feet to get caught in midair with no great safety valve available. So many of Westbrook's turnovers were on him for making a bad initial decision but were engineered by the Jazz's spot-on rotations. Westbrook scored two points in the fourth quarter of Game 2; he didn't even attempt a shot in the fourth quarter of Game 3. "Just gotta take what's given," Westbrook said. "I'm getting myself jumping in the air trying to look back to find P [Paul George] and Melo [Carmelo Anthony] and other guys on the floor. I've got to stay in attack mode and read my first option and go with that." Westbrook can dominate games in dynamic ways, but he has avoided trying to put his trademark stamp on one in this series. He has deferred often, trying to make the "right" basketball plays and swing to open scorers in space. But if the Thunder are going to bounce back, it's going to be because Russell Westbrook started playing like Russell Westbrook again."Just trying to make him think," Gobert Preston Brown Womens Jersey said of Westbrook. "Everyone knows I protect the rim, and I know that they know. So, I just gotta play games, make them think. They're one of http://www.officialbullsonlinestore.com/Authentic-Kris-Dunn-Jersey the best teams, especially Westbrook, attacking the basket. Got to be aware and try to do my best." wholesale nfl jerseys from china cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys
