Cheap Seattle Seahawks Jersey Wholesale From China For Outlet

For the second time in five years, Dion Jordan could be described as being a very intriguing NFL prospect.

Back in 2013, the University of Oregon standout was a physical specimen who would eventually become the No. 3 pick in the NFL draft. Five years later, Jordan has gone from wearing the label of first-round bust to being suspended for an entire season to battling multiple injuries to once against being viewed, as he was half a decade ago, as a pass rusher with a lot of upside.

After making his return to the NFL with the Seahawks midway through the 2017 season, Jordan recorded 4.0 sacks in five games, one more than he had in his career prior to this season. And given his long layoff from playing football—due to both suspensions and injuries, Jordan missed all of the 2015 and 2016 seasons and the first eight games in 2017—both he and the Seahawks feel like he is just scratching the surface of what he can become.

“He can be a legitimate factor,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “How good? I don’t know, I don’t know that, but I do know he should be a legitimate factor in the (pass) rush and in the run game. He’s a good pursuit guy, too. He is strong and big and all that. He just has a really unproven background and there is not much to go on there, so we’re having to piece it together with the few plays that we’ve got. But he made some real positive overtures and he’s an exciting prospect for us. Really exciting prospect.”

There’s plenty the Seahawks and their fans would like to change about the 2017 season, most notably the many factors that went into their missing the playoffs for the first time since 2011. But there were also a number of bright spots, coming both from obvious sources—star players like linebacker Bobby Wagner, safety Earl Thomas, quarterback Russell Wilson and receiver Doug Baldwin all had outstanding seasons—and from places people might not have been expecting heading into the year. Whether it was safety Bradley McDougald thriving in a starting role, or Justin Coleman grabbing ahold of the nickel corner spot and playing very well there all season, or perhaps most unexpectedly, Jordan becoming one of the team’s more productive pass rushers down the stretch, the Seahawks got significant contributions from a lot of newcomers this season, particularly on defense.

At 27, it’s a little bit odd to hear Jordan referred to as a “really exciting prospect” in the NFL—that’s usually an age at which a player is in his prime—but because he came into this season having missed so much time, it’s understandable that he and the Seahawks are both excited about what he can do going forward.

“Over the last few weeks, I just started to feel like myself again,” Jordan said. “I just started to understand what they needed from me here, and it just started to expand more and more.”

Added Carroll: “He was highly, highly regarded coming out of college for the right reasons. He just had three years of torment trying to get back to the game. The time he has been with us, he was just a remarkable example of diligence and grit and willpower and all of that, and when he made it back, it took him a little while to kind of knock the rust off. It took him a little while. And he is still coming, he is just getting started. He’s a brand new player coming up, and the opportunity now to be in this off season healthy—he’s healthy coming out of the season, so he can work hard to develop and get better—is really positive. We don’t know what the limit is, but we are really excited about it.”

Jordan’s teammates are equally interested to see in what kind of player Jordan can be with a healthy offseason under his belt.

“He was, what the third pick in the draft?” defensive end Frank Clark said. “I think he can be a Pro Bowl-caliber player in this league. He showed what he can do coming off of serious injuries, and that was just a little bit. He just showed a little bit. So imagine what he can give you in the full 16 (games), healthy with a full offseason to train—football training, not rehab. I’m just curious to see what he’s going to do next year.”

Jordan’s struggles, from how he failed to properly handle everything that came with being the No. 3 pick to substance abuse to injuries have been well documented, but as bleak as things looked for him at times, he never gave up on the idea that he could still enjoy a productive NFL career.

“I definitely could still picture it,” Jordan said a day after the season came to an end. “It all depended on what I wanted, how hard I worked. The opportunity to play for the Seahawks and be in this locker room just added that much more to it.”

Jordan credits the culture Carroll has helped build in Seattle as an important part of his comeback—as a recent Sports Illustrated profile noted, Seahawks assistant head coach/offensive line coach Tom Cable as well as former Seahawk Marshawn Lynch influenced Jordan’s decision to sign with Seattle—and that fit he has found with the Seahawks is a big reason why he hopes to return next season. And to hear Carroll talk about Jordan, who will be a restricted free agent, it certainly sounds like the defensive end is in their plans.

While looking ahead to the future during his year-end press conference, Carroll talked about “a bunch of guys in the defensive line that I’m excited about,” and the first player he mentioned was Jordan.

“We’ve got issues to try to return guys, but Dion Jordan had a marvelous turnaround and showed an impact that could be really instrumental,” Carroll said.

Five years after being the No. 3 pick in the draft, Jordan is once again a “really exciting prospect,” but this time around, he’s much better prepared to handle those expectations.

“It was huge for me,” Jordan said of his comeback season with the Seahawks. “Just proving that all my hard work paid off. It was great to be able to do it with the players who I had the opportunity to play with this season. I’m excited about what’s next.”

Cheap Buffalo Bills Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills

Injuries suffered by Andre Holmes and Travaris Cadet landed them on injured reserve. Buffalo promoted three players from the practice squad to help fill the void.

In the wake of some injuries suffered by players on the active roster, the Bills have promoted three players from their practice squad.

Buffalo elevated WR Malachi Dupre, RB Marcus Murphy and DT Rickey Hatley to the 53-man roster. To make room for them the Bills placed WR Andre Holmes and RB Travaris Cadet on injured reserve. Holmes missed last week’s game with a neck injury. Cadet suffered a fractured ankle in Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

The other roster spot was created with the release of DT DeAndre Coleman.

Dupre (6-2, 196) has been on Buffalo’s practice squad since mid-September. A seventh-round pick of the Green Bay Packers this past spring, the LSU product did not make the team’s final roster.

Murphy (5-9, 195) is a third-year player who was last with the Indianapolis Colts practice squad before he was signed to Buffalo’s practice squad last month. A former seventh-round pick of the New Orleans Saints, Murphy was primarily used as a return specialist. With Cadet out for the season however, Murphy could serve as a backup to LeSean McCoy in Week 17.

Finally, DT Rickey Hatley (6-4, 320) had just been signed to the team’s practice squad over the weekend. The rookie went undrafted and was signed by Houston, but didn’t make their final roster. He was last serving on the Chiefs practice squad before signing with Buffalo a few days ago.

Cheap Houston Texans Jersey From China For Sale

HOUSTON — After rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson tore his ACL last week, Texans head coach Bill O’Brien and general manager Rick Smith discussed adding free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

“We talk about the roster and what’s out there every day, Rick [Smith] and I,” O’Brien said.

When asked specifically about whether Kaepernick was discussed, O’Brien said, “Oh yeah, I mean everybody gets discussed.”

Last month, Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL for collusion, which said the NFL and its owners “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.”

Kaepernick’s protest began before a preseason game in 2016, when he did not stand during the national anthem, which has led other NFL players to follow in protest of racial inequality and police brutality.

On Nov. 10, ESPN The Magazine reported that Texans owner Bob McNair commented during an October owners meeting that “we can’t have the inmates running the prison.” McNair’s comments angered Texans players, and left tackle Duane Brown, who has since been traded, was vocal on the subject. The following Sunday against the Seahawks, the majority of Texans players took a knee during the national anthem. On Sunday, every Texans player appeared to stand during the anthem.

When asked if Texans ownership would sign Kaepernick if O’Brien wanted him, the head coach did not answer the question but said that Kaepernick is “a good football player.”

“I’ve studied him from when he was coming out of college,” O’Brien said. “When we scrimmaged against them and then obviously when he was in professional football when we scrimmaged against them last year when we went out to San Fran.

“Again, these things are discussed basically daily, and it’s not just one guy. Colin Kaepernick’s a good football player [but he] hasn’t played football in a while. But these things are discussed daily and they’ll continue to be discussed.”

Texans quarterback Tom Savage started in Sunday’s 20-14 loss to the Colts and was 19-of-44 for 219 yards and a touchdown. Most of those yards came on the final two drives after the Texans’ offense did not score a point until there were 6 minutes, 11 seconds remaining in the game.

O’Brien said as of now, he expects Savage to start on Sunday against the Rams.

Cheap Green Bay Packers Jersey From China Sale.

Thousands of Colin Kaepernick fans have signed a petition demanding the out-of-work NFL quarterback be signed by the Green Bay Packers to fill in for Aaron Rodgers, who may be out for the remainder of the season.

In a petition on Change.org, Kaepernick fans argued the quarterback, who grew up a Packers fan, is the obvious choice to lead Green Bay with Rodgers injured. The petition had garnered more than 12,000 signatures as of the time of publication.

“Aaron Rodgers is possibly out for the rest of the season but there’s a Wisconsin-born QB who should be on our team! Let’s makes sure the organization know we support Kaepernick to the Packers!” the petition said.

The push by Kaepernick fans comes just days after the former 49ers quarterback filed a grievance alleging NFL owners have colluded in not signing him to a contract. The grievance was sent to the NFL Players Association, as well as to the NFL and all its teams.

The filing alleges the NFL and its owners “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States,” ESPN reported.

Kaepernick famously refused to stand for the national anthem in order to protest police mistreatment of African-Americans—a protest that has spread this year, with hundreds of players taking a knee over the past month.

Kaepernick recently hit back at a claim that he would stand for he national anthem if he was offered a spot on an NFL team.

Although players have faced criticism from President Donald Trump and others who said taking a knee during the anthem shows disrespect to the flag and the military, Kaepernick and players who take part in the peaceful protest insist this is not the case.

Trump recently said during a speech in Alabama: “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’”

After Kaepernick initially refused to stand for the national anthem, he spoke with former Green Beret Nate Boyer, who felt it would be more respectful for Kaepernick to kneel if he wished to protest; sparking his decision and others to take a knee to protest.

According to the grievance, the quarterback feels his decision to take part in peaceful protests has resulted in his being denied employment in the NFL. Many of his fans are keen to see that change.
