Hall of Famer Gregg remembered as gentle giant

NFL JERSEYS
Forrest Gregg was remembered Wednesday as a gentle giant who was as comfortable playing Barbie dolls with his daughter as he was playing football for Vince Lombardi. Gregg died Friday at age 85 after a long fight with Parkinson's, a disease his neurologist and family believe might have been triggered by the countless concussions he sustained while playing football in the 1950s at SMU and in the NFL from 1956 to 1971. After playing 14 seasons in Green Bay, Gregg won one more Super Bowl in 1971 with the Dallas Cowboys. He went on to win 75 games in 11 seasons as a head coach in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Green Bay, and he took the Bengals to their first Super Bowl during the 1981 season, when they lost 26-21 to…

NFL draft’s easiest choice: picking a pass-rusher

NFL draft’s easiest choice: picking a pass-rusher

NFL JERSEYS
"If you sack the quarterback in college, you're going to get sacks in the National Football League," said Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller, who has 98 regular-season sacks in his eight seasons, six seasons with at least 11 sacks, and a Super Bowl MVP award. "That doesn't mean you don't have to work on your game, find some counters [moves] and study, but I think the sack guys in college usually are sack guys in the pros if they put in the work." This year's draft board is stocked with coveted pass-rushers, including Ohio State's Nick Bosa, the highest-graded player in most places. "You have quarterbacks that may sit in the pocket a little longer. ... [You have] bigger, more athletic tackles, you face tremendous players every week," Bosa said.…

Rams planned for future, now hope midround 2018 picks can produce

NFL JERSEYS
The evidence was rarely seen on the field. Yes, the Los Angeles Rams participated in the 2018 NFL draft. But no, none of the 11 players selected played a significant role in their Super Bowl run. In fact, the Rams' first-year players last season participated in the fewest offensive and defensive snaps among rookies across the league.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china But as preparations begin for the 2019 season, with a roster capable of another deep playoff run, several of the Rams' lesser-known prospects drafted a year ago will need to step up. Some, perhaps, in a major way. "You try to stay ahead of the curve," Rams general manager Les Snead said, as he reflected on the 2018 draft. With five months, and still several transactions to be…

From South Bend to South Africa, Jerry Tillery is ready for what’s next

NFL JERSEYS
While in Indianapolis last month for a job interview that is the most unique/intense/absurd/important in pro sports, Tillery met with several NFL teams. One asked Tillery, a defensive tackle from Notre Dame, to make 48 cents with six coins of different denominations. Another quizzed him on his typical dinner attire: shirt tucked in or untucked? ("Usually, I'm a tucker.") He had casual, unscripted conversations with some teams, and dived deep into football techniques with others. Then came the staring contest. Tillery can't recall if his opponent was a coach or a scout, but the other guy won.nfl nike jerseys for cheap "I wear contacts," he said, "so my eyes dry pretty quickly." There were some layups for Tillery at the NFL combine. One team asked him to name the capital…

Like his dad, Matthew Slater finds meaning in staying with one team

NFL JERSEYS
"I was really excited to hear from Bill [Belichick] that they wanted me part of the team moving forward. I'm so thankful that the Patriots saw fit to continue to make an investment in me as a player and as a leader for our team," Slater told ESPN.com.

Jay Gruden: ‘We’re looking for superstar status from Josh Norman’

NFL JERSEYS
The contract suggests he should be the best cornerback in the NFL, however, Josh Norman's play has not backed up that standing. But, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden says that doesn't mean the seven-year veteran corner should be ditched. Norman will have a $14.5 million salary-cap hit, fifth highest among players at his position this season. For the previous two years, he had the highest number.cheap nike nfl jerseys free shipping "To say he's performed as the best cornerback in the National Football League would be far-fetched," Gruden said.

Chargers want Thomas Davis’ leadership as well as his game

NFL JERSEYS
Every offseason, Los Angeles Chargers general manager Tom Telesco identifies a potential target at a position of need to pursue at the start of free agency. This year, that player was linebacker Thomas Davis. Looking for an edge in the push for a potential Super Bowl run, the Chargers added an experienced, grizzled veteran in Davis. The 36-year-old outside linebacker had spent his entire career with the Carolina Panthers, but he stepped out of his comfort zone in moving to the West Coast for an opportunity to return to the Super Bowl. Davis also had some ties with the Chargers to help guide him out West. He played with assistant defensive backs coach Chris Harris when he was a safety with the Panthers.

Jets’ CEO on winning a Lombardi trophy: ‘I’ll wear it like a crown’

NFL JERSEYS
Many years ago, the owner of the New York Jets stood in front of microphones and TV cameras and growled, "I'm 80 years old. I want results now." It was Leon Hess in 1995. He was part George Steinbrenner, part George Burns, and his edict was splashed across the back pages of the New York tabloids.nike nfl jerseys cheap china The team's current boss, Christopher Johnson, is only 60, but he certainly is entitled to demand immediate results, especially after spending an unprecedented $122 million in fully guaranteed money in free agency. But, no, Johnson didn't pull a Hess on Sunday night at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix. Commenting for the first time on the Jets' spending spree, he didn't set any grandiose expectations -- at least not for…
