NFL JERSEYS
Steve Gregory walks down the hall on the second floor of the Detroit Lions' practice facility and sees one of his colleagues coming toward him. Hank Fraley is a former NFL offensive lineman. He's about twice the size of Gregory, a former safety, and probably big enough at age 41 to still play. Gregory doesn't care. Five years removed from the NFL, the occasional urge remains. He'll throw a quick stutter-step and try to blow past Fraley with a pass-rush move. Usually, Fraley does nothing, but every once in a while ... "Hank pinned me up one day. He hit me," Gregory said. "I was like, 'God damn, Hank, you're pretty strong.' He's still got it a little bit."nike nfl jerseys cheap china For the two of them, who have…

Schwartz then continued with his assessment of Miller's game. Others added their input on the seven-time All-Pro. "He's got elite quickness and elite timing," one lineman said. "That is…

Deshaun Watson, offensive line share blame for Texans’ league-high 62 sacks

NFL JERSEYS

‘That’s a fine!’ Bengals have fun holding each other accountable

NFL JERSEYS
When Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert addressed a crowd of reporters in the locker room during OTAs, he already knew what was coming. "That's a fine!" Yelled teammate C.J. Uzomah, who happened to be walking by. In the Bengals' tight ends room, one could essentially be fined for anything, and Uzomah is quick to notice when someone breaks the rules. When rookie tight end Drew Sample stood in the middle of the locker room, doing a television interview, Uzomah counted cameras and doled out a fine. It's unclear just how many fines exist because Uzomah and Eifert denied a request by ESPN to look at the list. But it's safe to say the list is long, and probably not entirely suitable for general audiences.nike nfl jerseys cheap china "It's…
