Report: Some in 49ers thin

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick still hasn't found a new team after opting out of his contract with the 49ers in March, and Paxton Lynch Youth Jersey there haven't been any reports lately of teams showing interest. But if no NFL teams come calling this year, maybe Kaepernick will be just fine continuing with the social work he's been performing outside of football.

In his recent MMQB column, Peter King says there are some within the 49ers organization who believe Kaepernick could prefer to do just that rather than go back to the gridiron.

"Kaepernick has bought a place in downtownhttp://www.officialv...sey-c-2_23.html  Manhattan and lives in the big city fairly anonymously," wrote King. "I spent a long draft weekend with the Niners in California, and there are those in the building who think Kaepernick might actually rather do social justice work full-time than play quarterback."

Kaepernick hasn't spoken about his football status in recent months and has surfaced occasionally in regards to his social work, such as his recent donation of custom-made suits outside a New York city parole office, a donation of $50,000 to Meals on Wheels, and his involvement in a famine relief effort for Somalia. He's currently among a group of unsigned veteran quarterbacks that includes Ryan http://www.officialv...sey-c-2_34.html Fitzpatrick, Blaine Gabbert, Robert Griffin III, and Shaun Hill. Kaepernick started 11 games for the 49ers last season but they have moved on from Kaepernick, electing instead to sign Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley in free agency while adding C.J. Beathard in the draft. There's always a chance something could open up for Kaepernick in the future, whether it's from a team looking for more quarterback depth or if opportunities arise due to injury, but for now, all seems quiet regarding his immediate chances of finding a team.

Irish, linemen reap reward

Harry Hiestand is used to his offensive linemen deferring an opportunity to enter the NFL draft so they can instead spend another season with him.

(What's next for the Fighting Irish? Click here to sign up NOW for our free Notre Dame newsletter!)

Zack Martin, the 16th overall pick in theAndrew Gachkar Womens Jersey  2013 draft, elected to stay for a fifth year. The sixth overall pick last April, Ronnie Stanley, chose to return, too, after contemplating his future after his junior season.

The trend continued this offseason when left guard Quenton Nelson and left tackle Mike McGlinchey opted to return, a decision that means the Irish's offensive line is almost entirely intact from last season.

Part of the reason Hiestand believes offensive linemen maxing out there time at ND has become a trend is because of the tight-knit nature of the position group.

"He loved playing football at Notre Dame," Hiestand said of Martin. "He loved offensive line and his brother (Nick Martin) was here. (Chris) Watt's like a brother to him, too, and that's how these guys kind of get. They get very close to each other. They really care about each other, but they do, they have a special feeling for this university and Willie Brown Youth Jersey  guys don't always want that to end."

Making the decision to return requires players to take a big-picture approach rather than focusing on the opportunity to cash in on the NFL a year early.

"We know there's a lot of life ahead," Hiestand said, "but sometimes when they think smart they realize they'll have plenty of times to do those other things and this is a brief part of your life that you have here."

In the case of Zack and Nick Martin, five years wasn't enough.

The Indianapolis natives appeared together at practices in late March, taking the Irish's younger linemen under their wing in between drills.

"They love sitting in the meetings and watching the film and just kind of being part of it," Hiestand said. "It's great to see that they're willing to give back their time.

"They can't help themselves (from coaching players). More encouragement and keep fighting and those kinds of things as opposed to the technical part, but just encouraging them. Both those guys always had an awesome demeanor every day they were here."

By watching the Martin brothers, players are http://www.authentic...rsey-c-1_6.html able to take away some valuable lessons.

"No matter how bad they felt you could never look at a Martin and go, 'He doesn't feel good today,'" Hiestand said. "It's a great lesson for these players that you can't let your opponent see that they got you a little bit. They know your ankle's hurting, your shoulder's hurting, you don't feel good. Those two are one of the best examples in college I've ever had. That alone is great because they just pop in."

Zack Martin, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, reaped the rewards of returning to ND for a fifth year. McGlinchey has already benefited from the Irish's improved strength and conditioning program, and Hiestand expects the fifth-year senior to further increase his appeal to NFL scouts by cutting down on a plethora of false starts he was penalized for last season.

Playing on an offensive line with four returning starters is essential to cutting down on penalties, Hiestand said.

"It wasn't as much (moving from right tackle to left tackle) as playing around guys that hadn't played a lot," Hiestand said of McGlinchey's false starts. "Just having an incredible desire and determination to do well and to help others do well. Mike's big thing is he's always trying to get everything to work and he kind of forgets about himself sometimes.

"Really, it was not sides as much of trying tohttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_17.html  do much and trying to make sure everybody else is squared away and boom, he pops early. He's been much better with that this spring and that won't be an issue down the road. It was a product of that."

Jarius Wright will have every opportunity to stake his claim in 2017.

With the Minnesota Vikings losing bothhttp://www.officialv...rsey-c-2_6.html  Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson in free agency, Wright enters the offseason as the de facto No. 3 wide receiver on the depth chart, with Laquon Treadwell also vying for that status.

The veteran wide receiver might have a leg up on his second year counterpart, however for Wright, the early stages of workouts means an opportunity to get back in to the swing of things, as well as meeting back up with his teammates.

The first day went really well,’’ Wright http://www.authentic...sey-c-1_10.html said to Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “It was good to get a chance to get back in with my teammates and with all the new guys, just start building some team chemistry. It was great. I enjoyed meeting all the new players we had. It was fun being back.’’

That fun may be short lived. As the Phase I aspect of the offseason program ramps up, so does the intensity of the workouts. Positional coaches, as well as head coach Mike Zimmer, are barred from participating the early training sessions, however are allowed to be present in the building.

Zimmer himself was there early in the day Zack Martin Youth Jersey according to Wright, however departed early as he underwent yet another operation on the torn retina in his right eye. The Vikings' head man is set for one more procedure following Monday's.

With the Vikings returning to Winter Park on Monday for voluntary offseason workouts, the focus has shifted toward the 2017 season.

There are still a little over four months http://www.authentic...rsey-c-1_2.html to go until the regular season, but Tim Yotter of Viking Update took a peek at which young offensive players on Minnesota’s roster could push for a more expanded role this season.

Yotter mentioned running back C.J. Ham as a potential player to watch in the backfield.

The Duluth native spent the 2016 season on Minnesota’s practice squad.

C.J. Ham put together a pretty decent preseason as an undrafted rookie last year, finishing with the most carries (44) and second-highest average (3.2 yards) behind a shaky offensive line. Without Matt Asiata (or Peterson) on the roster, Ham may get more looks in the preseason in an effort to earn a spot on the roster. He’ll be fighting for that spot with Bishop Sankey and an anticipated draft pick. But dont count out Ham. (Latavius) Murray and Jerick McKinnon are expected to occupy the first two spots on the depth chart, but Ham could push for time, especially if an injury pops up in front of him.

Yotter said tight end David Morgan, a sixth-round http://www.authentic...sey-c-2_46.html pick in 2016, could be one to keep an eye on in offseason workouts. Morgan had one catch for four yards in 12 games as a rookie while contributing on special teams.

Without Rhett Ellison, David Morgan will see more time. So, too, will an expected draft pick. But Morgan had a year to be slowly immersed into the lineup without the pressure to do it all. This year, without Ellison or Zach Line (still a free agent that could be signed later), Morgan should get the opportunity to explore a bigger role as a move tight end/H-back.

As for the offensive line, Yotter didn’t name a player on the Vikings current roster, as he projects Minnesota to draft a lineman early on in next weeks draft.

This year, the breakout guy might not be on the roster yet. The feeling here is that the Vikings will use one of their first three picks (one in the second round and two in the third) on a guard. That guy will get every opportunity to win the spot vacated when the Vikings released Brandon Fusco and Mike Harris. They have other options, like Jerome Bettis Kids Jersey Joe Berger or Nick Easton moving from center to guard, or one of the right tackles sliding inside, but ideally a Day 2 pick in the draft is the one to emerge and solidify the spot.

McKinnon excited to team up with Latavius Murray

Time flies fast in the NFL, something McKinnon knows all too well.

The Vikings running back is entering his fourth professional season but is looking to rebound from a tough 2016 campaign.

McKinnon recently chatted with Matthew Coller of 1500ESPN.com about a variety of topics, including what he’s looking forward to this season.

McKinnon had 159 carries for 539 yards and two touchdowns in 2016, while adding 43 catches for 255 yards and another pair of scores.

The former 2014 third-round pick will see a new face in the running backs room this season.

The soon-to-be 25-year-old playmaker has a new bandmate in the backfield. The Vikings signed former Raiders running back Latavius Murray earlier this offseason. Last year, the Raiders used Murray as part of a trio that gained 1,922 yards, sixth most in the NFL.

McKinnon understands it’s a one-two punch league. Only one running back carried the ball 300 times last season (Ezekiel Elliott) as opposed to 2006 when there were 10 backs with 300-plus rushes, so its likely that the new co-workers will both see plenty of playing time.

I texted him after he signed the new contract to congratulate him, he seems like a cool guy so I just told him that, on my end, I just want to come in and compete so it will be good working with him and learning from him,McKinnon said. Hes been named to one Pro Bowl, so hes had success in the league. Im looking forwardJack Ham Youth Jersey  to getting in there, working with him, competing against him, learning about how he thinks about certain things, getting his point of view on certain situations and runs and plays, stuff like that.”

Different general manager, different fortunes for the Edmonton Eskimos in the CFL draft?

Under Ed Hervey, the club failed to see aTy Hilton Womens Jersey  single Canadian draft pick develop into a starting role during his four years of calling the shots around Commonwealth Stadium.

Part of that had to do with rolling the dice on futures prospects – up-and-coming Canadians who sparked interest in the NFL looking to exhaust any and all opportunities before eventually coming northward, if they ever do including Stefan Charles, Tevaun Smith and Arjen Colquhoun.

While it can sometimes be worth risking early draft picks for the chance at having some tantalizing talent land on your doorstep somewhere down the line, none of Edmonton’s recent gambles have yet to step foot in the CFL.

But that’s not to say new Eskimos GM Brock Sunderland is opposed to considering futures

Im a value guy, so it depends on where theyre at and what round theyre in and how high they go,said the former Ottawa RedBlacks assistant GM, whos only been sitting in the big chair in Edmonton since April 25. If theyre goinghttp://www.officialc...rsey-c-1_9.html  to be a first-round, sure-fire pick then I’ll probably lay back a little bit.

It also depends on where the organization is and this organizations very stable so it can be a little more patient.

At the same time, the Eskimos have some more immediate roster matters to tend to.

This draft will be an interesting on for Edmonton, who holds the fifth-overall pick as the first of eight selections. Not only because of the change in GM, but also because the team has geared up to switch how their Canadian ratio works on defence after getting rid of a Canadian defensive tackle spot previously patrolled by Eddie Steele and Don Oramasionwu.

Instead, there will be another American on the interior of the defensive line next to perennial all-star Almondo Sewell, while they brought in Canadian and former NFLer Cory Greenwood in free agency to take over the WIL linebacker spot where NFL-bound Deon Lacey, and Dexter McCoil before him, had shone.

So it wouldn’t be surprising to see them try to bolster their depth there a little sooner in the draft than the typical special-teams linebacking fodder necessary to fill ratio requirements.

The sudden retirement of starting Canadian wide-out Nate Coehoorn last month had to throw a wrench into their plans for the receiving corps, which also saw the re-addition of Shamawd Chambers while Devon Bailey left to join the Montreal Alouettes as a free agent.

This is the same Eskimos club that chose to go http://www.officialv...sey-c-2_27.html with future prospects with their first two picks a year ago, which also included a rare occurrence where they didn’t draft an offensive lineman. While they reported at the time they were happy with their O-line depth, it certainly doesnt hurt having a hungry youngster come in to push the established heavies.

ZERO TO 18

Chris Morris has been around long enough that he doesn’t need a crystal ball to make a pigskin prediction.

The head coach of the University of Alberta Golden Bears football program wasn’t too heartbroken that none of his players heard their name called in last years draft.

After all, the Bears have contributed current Eskimos offensive linemen Simeon Rottier (first overall, 2009) and David Beard (16th overall, 2015) via the draft, as well as former Eskimos centre Gord Hinse (11th overall, 2009).

While the program has seen its share of ups and downs over the past four seasons under Morris, no more can the individual talent that has been developing along the way be denied.

As the next few years go by, were going to have quite a few kids drafted out of our program,Morris, himself a first-round drafthttp://www.officialv...sey-c-2_33.html  pick (eighth overall) of the Eskimos in 1992, said ahead of last year’s CFL draft.

Fast-forward to the 2017 edition on Sunday and there are 18 Bears up for grabs, compared to none even making a blip on the radar a year ago.

KINGSTON, Jamaica — Distinguished jurist and judge of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Patrick Robinson this morning congratulatedhttp://www.authentic...zed-c-1_11.html  a team from the Norman Manley Law School on placing second in the prestigious Phillip C Jessup Moot Court competition, bettering their previous best of a top four finish.

Robinson served as a judge in the finals of this year’s competition, in which the Norman Manley Law School was a competitor for the first time.

The Jamaican jurist was sworn in as a judge of the international court in February 2015 to serve a three-year term, thereby becoming the only Jamaican and the second Caribbean person to serve on the ICJ in its 70-year history.

The letter in full:

The Editor Sir,

The Phillip C Jessup Moot Court is the Sylvester Williams Youth Jersey most prestigious International Law Moot Court in the world. I was a Judge for the final round of this year's competition that took place in Washington DC USA, on April 15th, 2017. The other Judges were James Crawford, who, like myself, is a Judge of the International Court of Justice and Bruno Simma, a former Judge of that Court.   

Prior to the start of the competition, I asked the organisers who were the two finalists. I was told that the rules of the competition prohibited the disclosure of that information to the Judges.

When the Respondents started to present their case I got the shock of my life- their accent sounded familiar. They were in fact students of the Norman Manley Law School, Kingston, Jamaica. In the finals, the Judges ruled in favour of the Applicants, a team from Australia.

The significance of the Jamaican team's achievement in placing second in this contest is illustrated by the following statistics.  In termsJames Harrison Youth Jersey  of international law moot courts, the Phillip C Jessup Moot Court has the widest global coverage, with 640 Law Schools from 95 countries participating.  At the two-week stage of the competition in Washington that ended on April 15th 2017, 143 Law Schools participated. To reach the final, the Norman Manley Law School students had to win 8 consecutive debates, sometimes debating twice in a day.

The moot covered several areas of international law, including the use of transboundary aquifers, the protection of cultural heritage, the human right to water and food, and the question of a host state's right to compensation for refugees. The issues raised were diverse and complex.  The Jamaican students had an excellent grasp of the facts and the law.  The Norman Manley Law School was represented by Jhade Lindsay, Victor Brown, Scott Mullings, Kalisia Miller and Anna-Kay Brown, coached by Marc Ramsay, an attorney-at-law.

Norman Manley would have been proud of thehttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_58.html  performance of these students. I am tremendously proud of their achievement and so should every Jamaican.  

Sincerely,

Patrick Robinson

Judge

International Court of Justice

The Hague

你可能还记得过去的几个休赛期,我经历了一个名为“乐观主义者/悲观主义者的文章系列。我用它来探索德里克瓦特正版泽西队匹兹堡钢人队面临的不同问题和主题,并采取积极或消极的方法,在另一篇文章中对每一方进行审查。这基本上是相同的想法,只有在每一个主题才能集中到一篇文章中。

在这个版本的想法,我会被打魔鬼 ' 代言人的问题上,双方在试图寻找什么是可能发生的可能结果的范围内寻找最好的情况和最坏情况对于钢人与本文所涵盖的任何话题有关。

当涉及到建立一个冠军名单的过程中,现实是有大量的运动部件和几个帕特里克·罗宾逊正品泽西的方式来获取所述的部分。有许多事情可能是对或错,不总是可预测的方式,所以我认为尝试通过寻找可能的积极或消极结果的边界来审视问题是有帮助的。

主题:第三年防守端LT沃尔顿去年在改善之后,2017年能够获得一贯的游戏天赋吗?

不是令人难以置信的往往是后期轮选秀权发展成为一个显著贡献的团队,至少百分比,但钢人表现还算不错 - 虽然并不在绝对最好的- 在这方面,在过去几年。

2015年第六轮选秀权LT沃尔顿似乎是他们收集后期贡献者的最新补充,因为上个赛季下半年由于受伤,年轻球员被打入了焦点。

他在跑步赛中表现得很好,但是努力提供很多的传球。最终,底线是钢人员传统上只穿五个防守线人。这意味着三名防守有两道http://www.authentic...sey-c-2_57.html  鼻子铲球一般。

钢人队今年签下了泰森·阿卢卢作为他们的第三个防守端,有人认为他在深度图上比沃尔顿高。由于深度图,他的职业生涯大部分时间都在闲置的名单上,只有当受伤的因素被纳入了方程式时才进行穿衣。

但是,如果他们认真地在那里行使更大的轮换,那么他们可以穿上六个线人,这是不可能的,因为去年他们的起动器受伤,并且被要求弹奏的按钮是有道理的。

另外一个考虑因素是,阿鲁卢甚至是沃尔顿本人发展成为一个备用的鼻子,可以解决Al Woods的做法。在这种情况下,钢人员可以摆脱四次防守端倪,并将丹尼尔·麦库勒(Daniel McCullers)放在板凳上,假设他的名单。

实际上,沃尔顿和哈文·哈格雷夫(Javon Hargrave)的重量相同,他们很满意他的鼻子能力。而且他已经表现出发挥出色的能力,这将是他在鼻子方面的主要任务。但事实上,哈格雷夫也扮演了镍,甚至可以在3-4结束,如果有必要,可以http://www.authentic...ey-c- 2_29.html也伤害了沃尔顿定期穿衣的机会。有很多的事情要考虑,它 ' 小号四月而已。

你哪边靠近?

You may recall for the past several offseasons that I ran an article series called The Optimist’s/Pessimists Take. I used it to explore Derek Watt Authentic Jersey different issues and topics the Pittsburgh Steelers were facing and took a positive or negative approach, examining each side in a separate article. This is essentially the same idea behind that, only condensed into one article for every topic.

In this version of the idea, I’ll be playing the Devils Advocate for both sides of the issue, looking at the best-case and worst-case scenarios in trying to find the range of likely outcomes of what is likely to happen for the Steelers relating to whatever topic the article is covering.

When it comes to the process of trying to construct a championship roster, the reality is that there are a ton of moving parts, and several Patrick Robinson Authentic Jersey ways to acquire said parts. There are a lot of things that can go right or wrong in not always predictable ways, so I think it’s helpful to try to look at issues by seeking out the boundaries of the likely positive or negative results.

Topic: Will third-year defensive end L.T. Walton earn a consistent game-day helmet in 2017 after improving last year?

It’s not incredibly often that a late-round draft pick develops into a significant contributor to a team, at least by the percentages, but the Steelers have fared reasonably wellalbeit not among the absolute bestin that regard over the years.

2015 sixth-round draft pick L.T. Walton would seem to be the latest addition to their collection of late-round contributors, as the young player was thrust into the spotlight due to injury in the second half of last season.

He represented himself well in the running game, but struggled to offer much as a pass rusher. And ultimately, the bottom line is that the Steelers traditionally only dress five defensive linemen. That means three defensive ends and twohttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_57.html  nose tackles, generally.

The Steelers signed Tyson Alualu to be their third defensive end this year, and one would think that he is higher on the depth chart than Walton. He has spent the majority of his career on the inactive list because of the depth chart, only dressing when injuries have factored into the equation.

But it’s not impossible that they could dress six linemen, especially if they are serious about exercising a greater rotation there, which would make sense given the injuries to their starters last year and the snaps they have been asked to play.

An additional consideration is the potentiality of either Alualu or even Walton himself developing into a backup nose tackle the way that Al Woods did. In that event, the Steelers could get away with dressing four defensive ends and leaving Daniel McCullers on the bench, assuming he makes the roster.

Walton is actually listed at the same weight as Javon Hargrave and they are comfortable with his ability to play the nose. And he has shown the capacity to play the run well, which would be his main task at the nose. But the fact that Hargrave also plays in the nickel, and could even play at end in the 3-4 if necessary, could http://www.authentic...sey-c-2_29.html also hurt Walton’s chances of dressing regularly. There are a lot of things to consider, and its only April.

Which side do you lean closer toward?

Maybe I’m crazy, but I was happy the Steelers didnt have a chance to pick Jabrill Peppers. I dont really know how highly the Steelers had Peppers rated, or whether he wouldve been chosen over T.J. Watts, but I just neverSteve Atwater Jersey  understood what was so attractive about Peppers.

* His versatility made for some interesting highlights, but too much of that stuff would devolve into gimmickry in the NFL, and exactly how much value would Peppers as a running back bring to a team that already employs Le’Veon Bell?

* But what really made no sense to me were the assertions, the belief, that Peppers would become “the next Troy Polamalu.Based on what, I have no idea, but the whole concept of chasing the next (insert name of great player here)is a fantasy. When has that ever worked out in sports? Any sport? Even with any coach in any sport?

* There’s a chance that a football team might have one great quarterback follow another, or have one great receiver follow another, but the idea that there can be a duplication of style, to me, can be the kind of thing that bogs down a front office with a fools errand.

* The next Joe Greene? The next Sandy Koufax? The next Jack Ham? The next Michael Jordan? The next Mel Blount? Those players were singular talents and unique individuals, and any effort made to duplicate what they once contributed or who they once were as players is wasted time. They were one of a kind. That’s what made them so special in the first place.

* The next Chuck Noll? Imagine the waste of time and effort and talent on the roster if Dan Rooney went searching for that insteadPatrick Willis Authentic Jersey  of simply hiring the best man for the job among the available candidates. Bill Cowher was an emotional and demonstrative coach on the sideline, and he saw value in motivating his players, which in fact made him the polar opposite of Noll, who regularly told his players, “If I have to motivate you, Ill fire you.

* The same with Mike Tomlin in following Cowher. The differences in their sideline demeanors are evident, and yet both men found ways to be successful while staying true to themselves. The last coach the Steelers hired before turning things over to Noll was a former Packers assistant named Bill Austin, who came to Pittsburgh and tried to do the job the way he had seen Vince Lombardi do it in Green Bay. Austin was 11-28-3 and fired after three seasons.

* Maybe Peppers develops into an All-Pro player, but if that happens it won’t be because hes the next Troy Polamalu. It will be because he maximized his abilities as the first Jabrill Peppers, and my fear was that in Pittsburgh there wouldve been too much interest in looking for him to be The Next Troy Polamalu. Maybe by the coaches in how he would have been deployed, but definitely by the fans in what was expected in terms of impact and style of play.

* Of the Steelers’ eight draft choices, three made pre-draft visits to the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex: Joshua Dobbs, James Conner, and Keion Adams. And its worth noting that Conner, because he attended Pitt, was considered a local prospect and didnt even count against the limit of 30 visitors. Some additional perspective: the teams No. 1, No. 2, No. 3a, No. 5, and No. 6 picks did not visit.

* Keep this in mind next year when some website pirating the Steelers name and logo breathlessly informs the public about pre-draft visitors, with the implication that there is some direct correlation betweenhttp://www.authentic...sey-c-1_41.html  visitors and picks.

* On the Monday before the draft began, General Manager Kevin Colbert assessed the talent pool this way: “On offense, there are good numbers at wide receiver. The offensive line probably isnt as deep as it has been in recent years. The tight end numbers are up some over recent years. There are good numbers in the secondary. There are good numbers for the outside linebacker candidates. Decent numbers for the defensive line.

* To attach numbers to his assessment, there were 15 combined guards and centers picked, 32 receivers, 56 defensive backs, and 32 linebackers.

* One of the fallacies of this draft was the notion that it would be OK for a team looking for help in the defensive backfield to wait before picking one because there was such depth of talent there. History might prove that there in fact was a lot of depth of talent among the defensive backfield prospects, but teams certainly didn’t wait long to pick from that pool.

* There were 30 defensive backs among the first 101 overall picks (29.7 percent), and at the time of the Steelers’ second-round pick, which was the 62nd overall, they were looking at the 20th overall defensive back vs. the sixth overall wide receiver, as an example. When Oakland made Obi Melifonwu the 24th pick of the secondhttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_42.html  round, the 56th pick overall, it represented an all-time NFL Draft record for number of defensive backs selected to that point.

Former Steelers center Dermontti Dawson — a seven-time Pro Bowl selection who played for the team between 1988 and 2000 was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012 and has since moved on to a career consulting with potential NFL draft picks about the draft process in addition to remainingDemarcus Lawrence Kids Jersey  active within the NFL community. He sat down with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette sports podcast to discuss topics including his new line of work, his thoughts on todays Steelers and some memories of former teammates. Below are some excerpts from our conversation, which you can listen to in its entirety by clicking the play button on the SoundCloud file embedded above, or by downloading it and taking it on the go with your smartphone.

On Maurkice Pouncey, the man who now plays Dawson’s old position for the Steelers and has made four Pro Bowl appearances...

Comparing Maurkice to myself, I think is kind of unfair, but Maurkice is one heck of an athlete, man. And looking at him now, being healthy, hes playing at that same high level ... Ill tell you what. He is a phenomenal player. And ISean Lee Womens Jersey  think if he keeps at the same level that hes playing right now, theres no doubt that hes going to be making Pro Bowls year after year if he stays healthy. He is a phenomenal athlete.

On “Concussion,the movie released earlier this year centered around some of his former teammates who struggled with CTE...

"All three of those guys, with Mike [Webster], Terry Long and Justin Strzelczyk, all three of those guys I played with. So I had tears in my eyes, when you’re seeing how things progressed with Mike, because I didnt know that Mike was suffering from some of the symptoms that he was, nor did I know Justin was suffering as well. Its really tough to see that because youre around those guys all the time, and you think that you would pick up on certain things, but Mike, I only got a chance to play one year with in 88, andhttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_27.html  then he went to Kansas City in 89 and 90. And then he retired. Justin Strzelczyk, I played with him for quite a few years, and then Terry Long, I played with him for just a few years, and even though we were close, sometimes you still dont see it because guys kind of hide whats going on and really, us as men, I think our downfall is sometimes were too prideful. And we dont ask for help and we dont let people know that things are going on in our lives. And pride comes before the fall. Thats what happened. And as tragic as it is, it was a tough thing to watch. ... I liked the movie.

On the importance of the Pro Bowl for today’s players...

Its cool just to go there as an honor and be there amongst some of the best players in the NFL and be able to just kind of socialize with them. Get to know them better. Get to know their families. Even today, being retired for 16, 17 years, I still keep in touch with some of those guys at all these other events that I go to. ... Thats the reason why its important for guys to go experience the Pro Bowl, and I think they should honor their nomination of playing in the Pro Bowl, because those are life-long http://www.authentic...sey-c-1_50.html friends that youll have for the rest of your life. Because it is almost like a fraternity.

Five Things To Know About

The Ravens signed former Patriots and Chargers running back Danny Woodhead March 8 to strengthen their backfield depth. Woodhead inked a three-year deal worth $8.8 million, $4.25 million of which is guaranteed. The 32-year Peyton Manning Youth Jersey old Woodhead will likely split snaps with Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon in the Ravens' running back rotation. Here are five things to know about the nine-year veteran.

1. All-Purpose Threat

Woodhead is listed as a running back and plays mostly out of the backfield, but he's made a name for himself as one of the best pass-catching backs in the league. He has four seasons with at least 300 yards rushing and receiving on his resume, and he's also pulled in at least 40 passes in three different seasons. He eclipsed 1,000 all-purpose yards twice in four seasons with San Diego, including a 2015 performance that saw him haul in 80 passes for 755 yards and six touchdowns. He's actually caught more touchdowns (17) than he's ran for (15) in his career.

2. Small School Success Story

Woodhead was lightly recruited out of North Platte High School in Nebraska, receiving zero Division I scholarship offers despite winning Nebraska Player of the Year honors as a senior. Instead, he got an offer from Division II Chadron State in Chadron, Neb., the same school his mother, father and brother attended. Woodhead's was the first full-athletic scholarship offer in the school's 96-year history. It was worth the wait for the Eagles, as Woodhead was a star from his first game in college. He ran for more than 1,700 yards four consecutive seasons, culminating in a then-NCAA record 2,756 yards as a juniorhttp://www.authentic...sey-c-1_22.html  in 2006. He left the Eagles as the NCAA's all-time leading rusher with nearly 8,000 career yards and is still second on the all-time list. He scored a touchdown in the final 37 games of his career and rushed for more than 200 yards in a whopping 19 games.

Despite his impressive college stats, Woodhead wasn't invited to the 2009 NFL Scouting Combine. Instead, he worked out at the Nebraska pro day and still compared favorably to his large-school competition. The 5-foot-8 back ran a 4.33 40-yard dash and recorded a 38.5-inch vertical leap, each of which would have been second-best among running backs at that year's combine. Even though his measurables were solid, Woodhead wasn't drafted. Instead, the Jets signed him to a deal as an undrafted free agent. He's currently the only Chadron State player in the NFL.

3. A "Young" 32

2017 will be Woodhead's 10th season in the NFL, but he should be fresher than most 10-year vets. The 32-year old running back has lost close to three full seasons due to injury during his career, including two in the last three years. Woodhead's first major injury came before he ever got on to the field. He tore his ACL during Jets training camp in 2008 and spent the entire season on injured reserve, never playing a down.

Five relatively healthy seasons followed before the injury bug hit the running back again in 2014. In the third game of the season, against Buffalo, the Chargers' Woodhead broke his fibula during the game's opening drive and missed the rest of the season. After a healthy, productive season in 2015, he lost a third campaign in 2016. In the second game of the year, Woodhead caught a pass in the backfield, and JaguarsJoshua Garnett Youth Jersey  linebacker Telvin Smith hit him in the knee, tearing his ACL again. That was the last time Woodhead has played in an NFL game. With San Diego, the running back spent 2014 and 2016 on injured reserve, but he turned in two of the best seasons of his career in 2013 and 2015. He's now fully healthy and looking to continue his odd-year success with the Ravens.

4. Seeking A Ring

Woodhead hasn't yet won a Super Bowl, a hole in his resume he'll be looking to rectify in Baltimore. He came close to a championship in 2012, when he reached Super Bowl XLVI with the Patriots. In that Super Bowl against the Giants, Woodhead ran for 18 yards on seven carries, but he was most instrumental through the passing game, as he pulled in four receptions for 42 yards. One of the four catches came with eight seconds left in the first half and went for a four-yard touchdown that gave the Patriots a 10-9 halftime lead.

The 200-pound running back has played in 10 playoff games throughout his nine-year career, six with the Patriots and four with the Chargers. He's totaled more than 330 yards in those 10 games, but his best performance came in 2010, when he caught six passes for 52 yards and added 46 yards rushing against the suffocating Jets defense in a Divisional Round matchup. The Patriots lost that game, 28-21. Woodhead hasn't been to the playoffs since 2014.

5.  Introspective

Early in the 2016 season, Woodhead wrote "A Letter to My Younger Self," an article that appeared in the Players' Tribune and gave advice to his 18-year old self on how to handle all of the adversity he'd face in college and in the NFL. In the article, the running back explained how worried he was that he'd never get to play http://www.authentic...sey-c-1_19.html football again after tearing his ACL the first time in 2008. He also detailed his eventual drive to return and how he's come to believe the injury was the "best thing to ever happen" to him, because he was able to learn from the team's veterans while recovering.

Twenty years ago, the NFL draft was marked by one of the most fateful quarterback choices in league history: Peyton Manning’s decision to Mario Edwards Youth Jersey  stay at the University of Tennessee for his senior year. The Jets, who had the No. 1 pick in 1997, are still reeling from the aftershocks. And it all may have been because Bill Parcells couldn’t commit to what practically everyone else thought was a sure thing.

Manning’s prolific NFL career can be summed up thusly: Hes one of the greatest passers in history. The end. But what set Manning apart back as far back as his college days was his status as a fail-safe prospect, a franchise savior. His 17-year career with the Colts and Broncos played out largely the way most observers and fans anticipated it would. But then, as now, quarterbacks were a scarce commodity. Then, as now, front offices thirsty for quarterbacks would panic themselves into believing any old chump at the top of the prospect heap could be molded into Joe Montana or Tom Brady. But Peyton Manning was different. He was that rarest of gems. He had that generational pedigree.

Now consider what could have been had hehttp://www.authentic...sey-c-1_44.html  elected to declare for the draft after his junior season at Tennessee: The Jets, whose franchise history has more or less been a fruitless 40-year search for Joe Namath’s replacement, were up first. In the spring of 97, the Jets were coming off a 1-15 nightmare that had shoved head coach Rich Kotite into permanent exile somewhere on Staten Island. But they had just hired Bill Parcells, whose handiwork to date included swift, massive construction projects with both the Giants and Patriots. Parcells had just taken the Pats to the Super Bowl, and the Jets had to compensate the Patriots for taking him away. There was some jousting, but in the end that compensation did not include the No. 1 pick in the draft. A Manning-Parcells pairing seemed to be inevitable.

If only it had been that simple.

David Cutcliffe told me he was “convincedManning would leave for the NFL after Mannings junior season. Now the head coach at Duke, Cutcliffe was Mannings offensive coordinator at Tennessee. He was so sure Manning was a goner that he had begun making preparations for a complete re-do of the Volunteersoffense.

On the night before Manning held a press conference to announce his decision, Cutcliffe said he was in Atlanta with a few other coaches to meet with Dan Reeves, then the head coach of the Falcons. Cutcliffe was there learn a few new offensive concepts from Reeves. But then the phone at his hotel rang around 1 a.m. It was Manning calling. Cutcliffe described Manning as a “practical jokerwho gave off every indication he would be leaving school. So Cutcliffe initially wasnt sure whether to believe him when Manninghttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_72.html  said he was staying. Manning soon let him know this was no gag.

We went back to Knoxville right then,Cutcliffe told me.

Rich Cimini has covered the Jets—without hazard paysince 1985, first with Newsday, then with the New York Daily News, now with ESPN.com. He was at the Daily News at the time of Mannings decision, and he wrote a story the morning of Mannings press-conference announcement that said Manning was staying in school. Cimini got the info from what he thought was a rock-solid source. But, as Cimini wrote last year:

The headline Cimini saw splashed across page Page A-1 of the Knoxville News-Sentinel on March 5, 1997, read: “Mannings moment; Grid decision: Insiders expect him to go pro.But the actual story was more nuanced; it cited separate sources saying two different things. As Cutcliffes story demonstrates, it was clear Manning had kept his true feelings close to the vest. Manning even set up his announcement by delivering what Cimini described as a 30-second preamble in which he made it sound like he was leaving schoolbefore he finally said he was staying. Mannings stated rationale was that he Franco Harris Kids Jersey only got to be a college kid once, and he wanted to milk the experience for all it was worth—a not unreasonable stance, even for a guy who risked sacrificing millions in the event of a catastrophic injury.

Ben Roethlisberger reportedly wants to makehttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_33.html sure that the cupboard is a full as possible for the 2017 season.

According to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala‏, Big Ben is "lobbying hard" for the Steelers to bring in some more offensive weapons before the start of what will be his 14th NFL season. Kinkhabwala's report is in stark contrast to what Big Ben said shortly following the AFC Championship Game when he was asked by reporters if the offense was missing something that prevented them from reaching Super Bowl LI.

"I like the guys we have," Roethlisberger said.

"I still think the guys playedTy Sambrailo Kids Jersey  great (in the AFC Championship Game)," Roethlisberger contined. "Eli (Rogers) stepped up big time today, worked the middle of the field. Jesse (James) had an amazing game, really saw a lot of growth out of him. Cobi (Hamilton) making a play here in the end and making a lot of combat catches."

Love the Pittsburgh Steelers? Then what are you waiting for? Stay in the loop and sign up for our FREE Steelers newsletter!

While Rogers and Hamilton enjoyed solid seasons in 2016, the AFC title game was not the best of games for either player. The same could be said for Sammie Coates, who -- albeit playing through mangled fingers -- dropped several passes that held Pittsburgh's offense back one game shy of the Super Bowl.

And while Pittsburgh's secondary receivershttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_23.html  played well last season, it doesn't hide the fact that Le'Veon Bell -- for the second time in three seasons -- was the team's second leading receiver in terms of receptions, catching 75 passes in just 12 games. The Steelers surely want to lighten Bell's load after the team's 2016 MVP's workload caught up to him at the worst time during the AFC title game. Bell managed just six carries before leaving the game with a groin injury.

Pittsburgh granted Big Ben's wish the last time he reportedly lobbied for a new weapon to be added via the draft. In 2014, it was reported that Roethlisberger wanted the Steelers to draft a "tall" receiver. The Steelers obliged, drafting 6'4 Martavis Bryant in the fourth round. When eligible, Bryant has been a major assets to Big Ben and the Steelers offense, averaging 21.1 yards per catch during his rookie season while catching 17 touchdowns in 24 career games (including the postseason).

With Bryant's status for 2017 still up in the Darren Mcfadden Youth Jersey air, it looks as if the Steelers will bring in another weapon (or two) to help make Pittsburgh's offense even stronger for the upcoming season, while appeasing their franchise quarterback in the process.

I think that the most fascinating fact about the life of Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney is the fact that he almost literally had some Deangelo Williams Youth Jersey type of personal relationship with every single person who has ever worn a Steelers jersey. For many decades, of course, he was near-solely responsible for signings, though he has taken more of a backseat in the past decade while remaining intimately involved.

Rooney was an ever-present fixture at the Steelers’ facilities, which the players entered for the first time yesterday since his passing. And for the few who would speak to it at the moment, it was clear that walking into the building will never be the same again.

I saw him every day in this building, Vince Djoun Smith Youth Jersey Williams told Teresa Varley yesterday for the team’s website. Today is the first day you come in and dont shake his hand, dont see him in the building. Its odd. I think everybody is feeling the same way.

I think that is a pretty safe proposition. There are so many stories of players who were at one point in time seemingly nothing more than camp bodies, later telling the story of how he was the first person to greet him and that he knew his name.

Ryan Shazier said that he would always ask him how the Buckeyes are doing, and when he asked, you would know that he was not simply http://www.officialc...sey-c-1_22.html making small talk, but was genuinely interested. He took an interest in the personal lives of his players—among others, of courseand tried to make their lives easier, like giving Jerome Bettisparents his own tickets when they traveled on the road.

Its never going to be normal, said Cameron Heyward, who recently recalled a time late last season when he was undergoing physical therapy after landing on injured reserve. Rooney walked up to him, despite going through issues of his own at the time, and asked him how he was doing, and said they would always have his back.

We know Mr. Rooney would want us to get back to work and accomplish our goals here, Heyward continued to tell Varley. The only way to do that is starting on day one. And that, too, was a common theme on the day.

Being back here, this is what he would want us to be doing, Ross Cockrell said. This is a baby that he built, and grew and nurtured. We are going to do our best to sustain it for him. For Heyward, it was a matter of showing thanks, whether its in winning the Super Bowl or accomplishing other goals.

We want to accomplish all of those inhttp://www.officialv...sey-c-2_20.html  his light”, he said. I think the most important thing you can do is continue the tradition and the legacy that was left, said Williams. There is no better way to do that than coming in and focusing on what we have to get done.

Even if the day doesn’t start off with that handshake any longer.

If you're a Redskins fan and haven't watched "The Perfect Murder", which is apparently a TV show on Investigation Discovery, whichSterling Moore Youth Jersey  is apparently a TV channel, you might want to turn in for your first show sometime in early June.

That's because, according to TMZ Sports, Redskins linebacker Khairi Fortt will play deceased Redskins legend Sean Taylor in an episode portraying Taylor's murder. According to TMZ, the show episode will center around "how cops helped solved [Taylor's] tragic 2007 home invasion murder."

Interestingly enough, Taylor's father willhttp://www.authentic...sey-c-2_42.html  be played by Guy Fortt, who just happens to be Kairi's father.

Fortt was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 2014 and signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins in January. He's also had stints with the Bengals, Jaguars, and Seahawks.

You can read the entire story on how this all came together here.

The Oakland Raiders picked up Darrius Heywardbey Youth Jersey a new crop of rookies over the weekend, but Bruce Irvin still isn't satisfied.

Irvin wants the Raiders to re-sign free agent linebacker Perry Riley Jr. He confirmed as much in a recent tweet.

The Oakland Raiders dominated the 2017 NFL Draft. Want the latest news on the 2017 draft class sent straight to your inbox?  –  Sign up for our FREE Raiders newsletter now!

Irvin and Riley were high schoolhttp://www.coltsshop...sey-c-1_23.html  teammates, so that's probably one reason why Irvin wants him back. Riley's fit with the Raiders, however, goes well beyond that connection.

Riley, who joined the Silver & Black in the middle of last season, was plugged into the starting lineup and made an immediate impact. He brought stability to an integral middle linebacker position that was lacking veteran experience and finished the season with 48 tackles (38 solo, two tackles for losses), a defended pass and two forced fumbles.

The Raiders signed Jelani Jenkins in free agency, but his best fit would be replacing Malcolm Smith on the weak side. They drafted a potential middle linebacker in Marquel Lee, but the fifth-round pick is no sure bet to start.

Other options on the roster include Cory James and Ben Heeney, late-round picks in recent drafts who failed to hold onto the starting job last season.

Reuniting with Riley, who is only 28 years http://www.officialc...sey-c-1_21.html old, would cap off a successful offseason for the Raiders.

Evaluating the roster, I found the Dallas Cowboys’ linebacker group to be a major disappointment. Let me tell you why

Minutes after releasing an article last week Chuck Foreman Youth Jersey  summing up the reasons Dallas Cowboys fans shouldn’t care about the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft, Im asked by Da Bossto do a mock draft. Like former Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo, I have decided to be a true company man and comply.

Of course, that meant evaluating the current roster and searching for room to improve. Unlike general mismanager and owner Jerry Jones, I actually have a draft day strategy which will be visible in an article released later.

To do a mock draft though, it required a total roster evaluation. It’s not as simple as screaming We need a pass rusher! Im also not the delusionalsuper fan that believes the roster is perfect. We know that guywho thinks every player on the Cowboys depth chart is the best in the NFL at their position because they have The Star on their helmet.

We have just handed over the keys to the flagship after the unceremonious dismissal of a four-time Pro Bowl quarterback after 34,183 passing yards, 248 touchdowns, 78 wins and a 65.3 career passer rating, so that position isn’t up for grabs.

The running back position is stacked with Darren Rhett Ellison Youth Jersey  McFadden and pro bowlers Alfred Morris and Ezekiel Elliott. Like Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta says, “Everybody knows if you attended the University of Arkansas, your roster spot is secure.

After doing this type of evaluation over the entire roster, I landed on one area. I can’t say that its a giant weakness, but more an area of disappointment.

Long time readers will expect me to start complaining about safety Byron Jones and his extremely below average play making skills at the free safety position as a first round draft pick. That’s too easy. When I think of the safeties group, I picture playoff interceptions by Jeff Heath.

My disappointment lands at the feet of the linebackers, especially Anthony Hitchens. As a rookie, he was outstanding while getting quality minuteshttp://www.authentic...sey-c-1_27.html  at every linebacker position. Hitchens racked up 66 tackles in 11 starts as a rookie in 2014. In 2015, he started nine games and got 39 tackles. With Justin Durant breathing down his neck, he started 16 games and got 39 tackles.

Let’s play a quick game and see if you can finish this sentence. Dude, remember that play from last year where Anthony Hitchens (insert answer here). Actually, you can put the answer in the comments, thatll be fun. Dont forget to complain that I mention Romos stats in every article too.

I might be hard on Hitchens, but he’s a player that I liked from the moment he was drafted I wrote this article about him two years ago. He was a four year player and led the Big Ten with 124 tackles in his junior year. With the Cowboys, he became a playmaker and his future looked extremely bright. What happened to this version of Anthony Hitchens?

I hate seeing players regress, don’t you? With Rolando McClain disappearing before the season like Blockbuster Video stores, Hitchens and Sean Lee shouldve been a deadly duo last year. Instead Damien Wilson finally emerged with 23 tackles and five starts but I dont recall memorable plays from Wilson or Kyle Wilbur either. Lee is clearly the Michael Jackson of this group.

Next year, it’s possible that Jaylon Smith could have the nerve to replace Hitchens at middle linebacker. That last sentence was so awesome, that Im just going to wrap this up. We may soon see Lee, Smith and Wilson, but the linebacker group needs to have the nerve to improve.

If you’re good at reading between myHeath Miller Kids Jersey  witty, yet insightful lines, my first round, mock draft selection won’t be a surprise (its not a kicker).

Until then, join me in waiting for the official 2017 NFL regular season schedule to be released this Thursday.

评估员在侦察四分卫时,沿途不同地挖掘他们。德州人通用汽车瑞克史密斯获得了他的第一个强有力的线索,Deshaun Watson可能是1月9日从雷蒙德詹姆斯体育场的休斯顿的比赛。

史密斯知道他三个月后要打电话给谁,无论是加入一个充满强力退伍军人的季后赛名单。Dermontti Dawson女士泽西 如何处理新的QB?沃森回答说,在全国冠军赛中剩下两分钟,阿拉巴马州的防守和69码的百慕大草地在他面前。

' S IN的瞬间热,一时的艰巨性,他们下井及评分, ” 史密斯在他的办公室周三下午解释。只是他的存在,他的信心,他的态度,他在这种情况下处理自己的方式,在那一刻,这是非常令人印象深刻。...... ' 为什么我去那些游戏- 你可以看到他们对逆境如何应对,他们对自己的队友的反应如何,他们如何在比赛中发生反应,他们的教练,不同的情况。

我看到只有很大的一点,我看到他的信心。很显然,他去了,在所有时间伟大的游戏,你一个执行 ' LL见过。他在一个非常有竞争力和高度收费的环境中运作,有很多的积极性和执行力。

你知道接下来发生了什么。所以看到它自己的眼睛,而不只是我们在电视上看到,史密斯与沃森一样的自信放在上周四处理得到这个21岁的老虎。

我认为史密斯不得不吞下去,然后发送明年的第一轮选秀权克利夫兰上升了13个地方,抢了沃森在第12号。我错了。

我没有这样经历,史密斯  笑着说,格雷格劳埃德女子泽西我对于发生这种情况的感觉,一切都是按照这个方式工作的。

在本周的游戏计划中,我们四分卫重要- 解释了熊在米切尔Trubisky看到的内容,为什么酋长们为帕特里克·霍姆斯(Patrick Mahomes)下降,以及2018年四分卫队如何影响今年的阵容呢。另外,我们' 来了解一下爱国者和喷气机的草稿,和这么多。

但是,我们开始与史密斯- 现在在他的第12赛季德州人GM - 使大量的举动,他不是招在过去吨。在他以前的10场草案中(他在2006年的比赛结束之后他接手了),他在第一轮上升了一次,那是去年他从22日到21日,全面接受了Will Fuller的接力。他的最高的选秀' 的研发投入上的四分卫是他在2014年新任汤姆萨维奇使用的第四个多面手。

所以毫无疑问,这是德克萨斯州通用汽车公司的形式。

你是什么重新获得的,而你的假设说得对- 我看重的选秀权, ” 史密斯说。我做,所以必须放弃选秀权在http://www.coltsshop...ey-c-1_18.html   命令去获得一个球员你只需要坚信玩家是值得评估任何价值的。在这种情况下,就是这样。“

我想要去与史密斯是他是如何得出这样的信念,它原来有沿途的三个重要关口,从他的视角- 游戏标题,联合收割机和沃森休斯顿的访问。磁带是磁带。大家都看到了。相信一个特许经营转型的投资是值得的(在Brock Osweiler制造的另外一个大的一年之后)是不同的。

所以这里史密斯的感觉如何呢?

标题游戏

屈臣氏的一个充满压力的情况-s命令只有走出坦帕的等式的一部分。史密斯有幸与克莱姆森特遣队坐在一起,并遇到了在足球办公室工作的杰西卡·杰斐逊。他们刚刚说过话,但史密斯心里却记得。

史密斯说:她恰好坐在我身边四分之一点五分钟,她只是嘲笑他所在的人和他的领导人,史密斯说。她知道(德州人接收者/克莱姆森明矾)DeAndre Hopkins,所以http://www.officialc...ey-c-1_16.html   我们谈到了不同的人在程序中。但是她真的很满意Deshaun,他是如何围绕这个计划进行的,而不仅仅是一个足球运动员。“

所以史密斯对这个人而不是球员的照片正在变得清晰。
