Kirk Cousins’ all-or-nothing pursuit kicks off against 49ers

Kirk Cousins’ all-or-nothing pursuit kicks off against 49ers

NFL JERSEYS
But this challenge? It's almost unheard of. Joining a team coming off a 13-3 season that views the player tasked to fill the quarterback position as the missing link between this franchise and a Vince Lombardi Trophy derives an unfathomable amount of pressure.nfl stitched jerseys It's an all-or-nothing pursuit. What Cousins does in Minnesota will either set him up for his next earth-shattering contract or be deemed among the biggest mistakes in NFL history. There is no in between. So let's cut to the chase and ask the question we're all wondering: Why would he do this to himself?! "Well, I think you want to go somewhere with expectations, right?" Cousins said on ESPN's NFL Countdown. "I mean, we're here to win and I was looking around and ultimately people…

Lions cut cornerback DeShawn Shead

Lions cut cornerback DeShawn Shead

NFL JERSEYS
The Detroit Lions signed DeShawn Shead in March to potentially be a starting cornerback this fall -- but he won't even be on the roster. The Lions cut Shead on Saturday. Shead, 29, had been dealing with strained quadriceps throughout training camp, which forced him to miss two preseason games. He played a lot in the finale against Cleveland on Thursday, and said he did so because he wanted to get ready for the start of the regular season.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal "I want to make sure we give [Shead] a good opportunity to go out and compete and look at him in a couple different positions and situations," Lions coach Matt Patricia said Thursday night. "You know, we actually moved him around different positions defensively. I would say…

NFL’s bad wheel: Hamstrings leave star players in quicksand

NFL’s bad wheel: Hamstrings leave star players in quicksand

NFL JERSEYS
Barkley leads a growing list of players falling victim to the NFL's hamstring epidemic. He's one of nearly 10 Giants to suffer a strain or a tweak or whatever arbitrary euphemism head coaches like to use for the injury. It has just three grades -- simple pull, partial tear and complete tear -- yet all of them are nearly impossible to tough out. Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon finally showed up for the preseason, then found his way back out thanks to the pesky muscle. The New England Patriots cut two of their receivers, Jordan Matthews and Kenny Britt, at least partially because of the injury.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap A 2011 study for the U.S. National Library of Medicine conducted by several doctors, including Steelers team physician Dr. Jim…

Not perfection, but Falcons’ Calvin Ridley already up to speed

Not perfection, but Falcons’ Calvin Ridley already up to speed

NFL JERSEYS
Calvin Ridley has heard nothing but praise for months, but the Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver realizes he's not immune to criticism. Such was the case following Saturday's preseason loss at Jacksonville. Ridley had his first taste of NFL adversity when he dropped a pass from Matt Ryan that would have been a first down right in front of Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Ridley also had another play that went through his hands although defensive back Tyler Patmon made a good play on the ball. Falcons coach Dan Quinn wasn't pleased.cheap nike nfl jerseys free shipping "That's part of 'Tell the Truth [Monday],"' Quinn said. "Nobody escapes that. ... That's part of the process that we go through to say, 'Hey man, we expect you to "I'm sure he doesn't…

Mike Williams emerging as red zone target … and fantasy value

Mike Williams emerging as red zone target … and fantasy value

NFL JERSEYS
Mike Williams has looked like the real deal so far during training camp, torching New Orleans Saints' defenders during joint practices last week and regularly getting open against his own defense. Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt has said he likes how much Williams has grown as a wide receiver in his second season.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china "He's shown us throughout the course of camp all of the different things he can do," Whisenhunt said. "Whether it's running a shallow crossing route or a curl, you felt like he could catch some of the balls down the field and make the contested catches. "But some of the crossing routes and those types of things, you didn't see him do a lot of that in college. So, I…

In Redskins debut, Adrian Peterson eager to get to work

NFL JERSEYS
The Washington Redskins once upon a time had their running-backs situation figured out. And then came the injuries. And then came Adrian Peterson. Starting Friday night, they hope Peterson can help settle the situation. He’ll get his first chance to play in a Redskins uniform when they host the Denver Broncos. It’s uncertain how much work he’ll get, but coach Jay Gruden has said he’d like to get him a handful of carries in the first half while working with the first-team offense. After all, that’s who he’d be with in games, whether as the starter or a primary backup.cheap nfl nike jerseys free shipping Gruden said he’s anxious to see Peterson in a game. They signed him Monday and he practiced with the team Tuesday and Wednesday. He participated…

Best QB never to win a playoff game? Lions’ Matthew Stafford

Best QB never to win a playoff game? Lions’ Matthew Stafford

NFL JERSEYS
Matthew Stafford stood at the podium and looked momentarily frazzled by the question. It’s the preseason, and Stafford, who had answered questions about his newborn child and the third preseason game, wasn’t expecting it. But in the NFL, for any team with a franchise quarterback, there’s only one thing that really matters -- the postseason. For all the individual success Stafford has had in his career, the gaudy statistics he has put up and his role as the constant among eras of change in Detroit since the Lions drafted him in 2009, team success has eluded him.cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys He wouldn’t be the first Lions player to have that happen; Barry Sanders and Calvin Johnson went through, essentially, the same thing. The viewpoint is different for quarterbacks, though.…

Worth the weight? Josh Norman has vested interest in training

Worth the weight? Josh Norman has vested interest in training

NFL JERSEYS
As the pass reached its destination, Washington Redskins secondary coach Torrian Gray anticipated cornerback Josh Norman would make a play. Instead, he didn’t get high off the ground, leaving Gray a little puzzled. A day or two later, Norman looked more spry. He raced over from his side of the field toward the middle and jumped high. With an extended reach, he intercepted a pass. The difference could be owed to one thing: an 18-pound vest that Norman often wears underneath his pads during practice. Gray didn’t even know about it until he was asked about it -- and Norman was reluctant to discuss it. Why give away his secrets, after all?nfl nike jerseys cheap china He started using it in the spring and kept it on during almost every…

Cleveland’s shot to join the ‘Biggest turnaround ever’ club

Cleveland’s shot to join the ‘Biggest turnaround ever’ club

NFL JERSEYS
The Cleveland Browns are surely hoping to pull off a '99 Colts or an '08 Dolphins. Those are the only two teams since 1970 that have made a 10-win improvement from one year to the next. And while a 10-win jump from the hapless, zero-win 2017 campaign seems like a near impossibility, there is certainly some preseason buzz that this Browns team could at least win some games in 2018. And the "Hard Knocks" bump has barely even kicked in! To a degree, ESPN's Football Power Index is joining the party, giving Cleveland a 55 percent chance to win at least six games this season. From a historical standpoint, that's more realistic, given that 68 teams since the merger made a six-win improvement from one year to the next.cheap nfl…

Vikings coach is on a mission to save special teams

Vikings coach is on a mission to save special teams

NFL JERSEYS
Thoughts of scheme and strategy creeping their way into his subconscious are common for Priefer, the former naval helicopter pilot whose strict attention to detail has Minnesota atop the NFL with the most special-teams touchdowns (14) since his arrival in 2011. The questions he pondered spanned the spectrum: Will these safety measures lead to longer returns and fewer onside kicks? If you have a good return team, is your opponent more apt to try to kick touchbacks? If your kicker can put the ball high and short to the goal line with a 4.3-second hang time, how much easier is that to cover? If the returner you're facing is someone like Tyreek Hill, are you better served to try to kick it out of the end zone?cheap nike jerseys nfl…
