How the Kirk Cousins rejection changed everything for the Jets

NFL JERSEYS
Make no mistake, the Jets wanted him badly -- so badly that they raised their initial offer, putting a three-year, $90 million contract on the table -- fully guaranteed. They saw it as a rare opportunity to acquire an established quarterback in his prime. As it turned out, their blockbuster proposal accomplished only one thing: It forced the Vikings to raise their offer from $75 million to $84 million, based on what Cousins says in an online documentary that details his decision-making process. He jumped at the Vikings' revised offer, also fully guaranteed, not even bothering to take a visit to the Jets. His decision forever changed the franchise.cheap nfl jerseys china nike "Cousins or Darnold? Me, personally, I'd take Darnold," said a longtime NFL talent evaluator, speaking on the…

Gronk 2.0? Travis Kelce doesn’t see it that way

NFL JERSEYS
Travis Kelce likes to watch video of great NFL tight ends, past and present, to see what he might learn from their games. He has seen much of Tony Gonzalez, his predecessor as a great tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. And, yes, he has watched plenty of the contemporary tight end with whom he has often compared, Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. Kelce said he doesn't see the similarities, other than both are moved around the formation as their respective coaches search for the best matchups for 260-pound players who are difficult to cover.nfl jersey cheap wholesale "When I get the ball in my hands I'm a different type of athlete," Kelce said in 2017 on the Dan Patrick radio show.

Le’Veon Bell, James Conner duo ‘can be very effective’

Le’Veon Bell, James Conner duo ‘can be very effective’

NFL JERSEYS
In an inconsistent season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have consistently praised James Conner. Several teammates publicly reveled in Conner’s 185-yard performance Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in light of headlines swirling around Le’Veon Bell’s eventual arrival. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva referred to Conner as an “unbelievable human being” whom he’s proud to call a teammate. But the Steelers will get a top-10 NFL player in their lineup soon enough, and he happens to play running back. Bell is an elite player regardless of what Conner does. Conner's showing that he can get hot with two big performances through five weeks only deepens the intrigue around the Steelers running back position for Week 8 against Cleveland, Bell’s targeted return game. On the surface, there isn't much downside here. Bell can only help,…

Baker Mayfield: Browns can be ‘great’ with more attention to detail

NFL JERSEYS
The quarterback's success at Oklahoma that led to him being the 2018 draft’s first overall pick was about details, he said. “The reason we were able to go fast is because everybody knew exactly what they’re supposed to do,” he said Wednesday. “When you do that, when you get a team on the same page, it gets dangerous. On top of that, when you fine-tune the details, everybody realizes what we’re trying to get accomplished, where the ball needs to go. “A receiver, even if he might not be getting the ball, might run his route in a way to get somebody else open. It’s stuff like that we need to get accomplished.”china nike nfl jerseys cheap Mayfield even drilled home the point that he said a receiver playing on…

Run game woes forcing Vikings to lean on Kirk Cousins’ arm

NFL JERSEYS
Cousins and Jared Goff went a combined 59-of-83 passing for 887 yards, with eight passing touchdowns and no interceptions in their Thursday night shootout. This was the second game in NFL history to feature five 100-yard receivers (Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Cooper Kupp, Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods), according to Elias. After his third straight game with 48 passing attempts or more, Cousins is on pace to break Matthew Stafford’s 2012 record of 727 passing attempts in a season by 29. And he’s already eclipsed several team records, having thrown the third-most touchdown passes (10) and the most passing yards by any Vikings quarterback (1,387) in the franchise’s first four games.

How bad is the Patriots’ start? Statistics paint a bleak picture

NFL JERSEYS
Is the New England Patriots' season already in jeopardy? Or is this a familiar stutter-step that Patriots fans will laugh about while their team hoists another Lombardi trophy in February? The answers will play out over the course of the season, but for now, the Patriots and their fans aren't laughing,cheap nike nfl jerseys from china Sunday night's 26-10 loss to the Detroit Lions wasn't an ordinary loss.

So for nearly 58 minutes, the Patriots were thoroughly shut down by a team that looked pedestrian at best in losing its first two games. And 3-0 Miami…
