Hunter’s extension shows importance Vikings place on pass-rushers

NFL JERSEYS
Danielle Hunter was considered a raw prospect when he entered his name into the 2015 NFL draft after registering 4.5 sacks during the latter two seasons of his three-year career at LSU. His ceiling and upside appeared limitless, backed by his athleticism and motor, but how far he'd take his talents depended on the fit of the system he landed in and the coaching staff responsible for molding him. The summer ahead of Hunter's rookie season, Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer invited 12-year NFL veteran Greg Ellis to take in a practice at training camp. Zimmer was curious to hear what Ellis, a defensive end who played for him in Dallas, thought of this new crop of young talent -- particularly Hunter, the team's third-round pick. At the nudging of…

A Saints approach: Packers could copy New Orleans’ run plan

NFL JERSEYS
You also might have seen a way the Green Bay Packers can meld their three potentially productive backs -- Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones -- into something similar even with the return of Aaron Rodgers from the broken collarbone that ruined last season. The NFL always has been a copycat league, so don't be surprised if coach Mike McCarthy takes a page out of Payton's playbook. The Saints coach fielded the NFL's fifth-best rushing attack last season in large part because he blended veteran running back Mark Ingram with Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara. It wasn't just your standard starter and third-down/change-of-pace combination; the two were essentially interchangeable, which kept defenses honest no matter which one lined up behind Drew Brees.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap McCarthy…

‘Straight adrenaline’: CC Sabathia high-steps the Yankees to victory

MLB JERSEYS
What Sabathia said in the middle of the Yankees' 8-1 win Friday night over the rival Boston Red Sox wasn't really important. But what was important was the way his teammates were energized by his overly enthusiastic body language, and the manner in which he practically shut down one of the best offenses in baseball. "We feed off that, just the energy that he provides," Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge said. "He pounds the strike zone and he just dominates. He doesn't miss a spot."cheap nfl jerseys china nike Across seven innings in a high-stakes game in one of the biggest series to this point of the season, Sabathia held the Red Sox in check.

The process slowly hit landmarks. On the ice, the integration of 2015 first-round pick Mathew Barzal was a revelation. The center, along with surprise 40-goal scorer Anders Lee and a dependable Josh Bailey, played an integral role in New York's offensive awakening last season. Barzal ran away with the Calder Trophy with 85 points.cheap nfl nike jerseys china Off the ice, the new owners waded through yet another arena impasse and cleared the path for an eventual return to Long Island.
