Tampa Bay Buccaneers players are no strangers to media coverage. Not all of it is always good. So, when the opportunity arises, it’s important for us to see these guys out and about doing good deeds and changing lives. Girls Youth Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jameis Winston Pink Bubble Gum Jersey.

Jameis Winston recently had an opportunity to execute one of these great tasks as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback got the pleasure of delivering some great news to one deserving Florida State student.

Winston has been at Florida State working out and was able to participate in a moment the student seen in the video will surely remember for the rest of his life.

Identified as Casey Jackson, the sophomore reportedly knew he was getting the scholarship. He just didn’t know how it would come.

Many fans of Winston get autographs but very few will ever have the type of experience Jackson just did, as one of his favorite NFL players jerseys and fellow Seminole got to hand deliver potentially life changing news.

It’s hard to ignore the looming investigation the NFL is reportedly engaged in with Winston regarding an incident which allegedly occurred in Arizona in 2016.

Earlier this off-season, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter voiced frustrations with the pace of the investigation.

It’s easy to linger on negatives involving players such as Winston, and at times he’s done himself no favors in that regard.

However, in this moment, it’s equally important to take time and applaud the young leader for seizing the opportunity to influence others.

Bucs’ Jameis Winston, DeSean Jackson working to make Year 2 ‘different’

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston and wide receiver DeSean Jackson are making good on their promise to attack their offseason program this year and improve their chemistry heading in 2018.

Jackson posted a photo on Instagram of himself and Winston working out together Tuesday at Florida State. He captioned the photo, “Bac at it wit da young fella [Winston]. Year 2 wit bra gonna b sumthin different.”

Last week, Winston responded to a story in the Tampa Bay Times that questioned what the Bucs should do with Jackson after an underwhelming 2017, saying, “We got this! I personally will make sure we show how valuable DeSean Jackson is to our team and [the] NFL.”

The Bucs signed Jackson last offseason to a three-year deal worth up to $35 million with $20 million guaranteed. But in Year 1, the two struggled, particularly on the deep ball, which has been Jackson’s forte since he first got into the league.

The feeling inside One Buc Place has been that Winston’s shoulder injury compromised his velocity and accuracy downfield, and that Jackson was winning his routes. They haven’t noticed any drop-off in his speed, either.

“We did not get the production out of DeSean. And when I say ‘production out of DeSean,’ when you go back and look at the tape, we have a tape of just plays where we didn’t hit DeSean,” Koetter said. “DeSean was where he was supposed to be. He was either behind the defense, in between the corner and the safety, or he was in position to make explosive plays and we didn’t get the ball to him. So that’s on myself; it’s on Jameis to do better.”

The intent was there. Jackson had 15.82 air yards per target last season, the highest of any player in the league. But Winston completed just 16 of 53 (30.2 percent) of his passes of 20 or more air yards downfield — 23rd in the league. Jackson caught five passes thrown for 20-plus yards last year (20 percent of the attempts). In 2016 with Kirk Cousins and the Redskins, Jackson caught 16 of those passes (50 percent of the attempts).

“I think DeSean and Jameis have both said that they need to spend more time working together, and I think they’re addressing that,” coach Dirk Koetter said. “When Jameis got cleared to throw this offseason, I think they started working on that. But that is definitely something that, when we get back, our chance to take control of that as coaches, that’s something that we’ll be working on.”

In addition to outside practices, Jackson needs to be around for more OTAs. Jackson was noticeably absent for a few of them last year. While attendance isn’t mandatory for those practices, the players Winston has had the most success with — wide receiver Mike Evans, tight end Cameron Brate and wide receiver Adam Humphries — have each had close to 100 percent participation in OTAs and have devoted extra time to working with Winston the past three years.

Discount Men’s Washington Redskins Josh Norman NFL Pro Line Burgundy Big & Tall Player Jersey

Josh Norman jersey cheap for sale

The Washington Redskins were back to work on Wednesday, but one player wasn’t on the field with them.

Only a few days after making controversial comments regarding his future with the franchise, cornerback Josh Norman missed practice on Wednesday, instead riding a stationary bike off to the side. Norman was not listed on the injury report, with head coach Jay Gruden saying it was a “rest day” for the beleaguered cornerback.

“Maybe a little wear and tear,” Gruden said after practice. “I don’t think it’s anything serious. More of a rest day for Josh, so to speak. But he is a little sore.”

Norman himself insisted that nothing was wrong health wise, doubling down on his comments that the team needs to get back to winning ways, and do it quickly.

“We’ve got to win. That’s all that matters,” Norman said. “Nothing changes other than doing what we’re supposed to do, doing what we’re asked to do, doing what we’re coached to do.”

Part of the frustration with Norman has been the Redskins’ decision to not allow him to shadow opposing team’s best wide receivers. Gruden explained why Norman, who has shadowed wideouts at times this season, has no longer being so, pointing to communication and continuity on the defensive side of the ball as the reasons behind him playing to one side in recent weeks.

“He’s a corner, that’s what position he plays,” Gruden said. “The majority of NFL teams have two or three really good receivers, and a lot of times you start trying to run around and matching with one guy, then everybody else has to get set on their guys and it creates confusion.”

The ‘Dark Knight’ signed a $75 million contract with the Redskins in 2016, making him the highest paid cornerback in the entire league. The mega-deal came on the heels of his stellar 2015 season, in which he was given All-Pro honors. The deal was met primarily with elation, and through his first season, he gave fans little reason to feel anything else.

Norman kept up with his pace set in 2015 in 2016, locking down receivers left and right whilst notching three interceptions and a whopping 19 pass deflections. Heading into 2017, there was little reason for skepticism. Norman was coming back to an even better defense, and he appeared to have great chemistry with safety D.J. Swearinger. And even through the start of the 2017 season, he played rather well.

But as the season has played out, Norman has gotten worse. Much worse. It started against the Vikings, when Case Keenum burned him countless times with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, and it came to an unforgiving climax last Sunday, when Phillip Rivers and the Chargers tore apart the Redskins’ secondary, with Josh Norman giving up touchdown receptions to both Tyrell Williams and Keenan Allen.

A few weeks ago, after the Vikings game, it would have been reasonable to dismiss the subpar performance as one in a million. But now, Norman has strung together several clunkers, and it’s fair to wonder if he’ll ever recover from this stint in Washington that is growing more and more toxic by the second. Norman himself voiced his discontent with the situation after the Chargers game, per Kimberly Martin of the Washington Post, and he even alluded to leaving the team if things did not get better.

I came here to win a championship. If we’re not doing that, what are we doing? Why are we here? Because I’m not going to be a part of something that’s not going to go forward and win a championship,” Norman said. “That’s serious. I don’t care about the money, I don’t care about the fame, I don’t care about anything. The only thing I care about is that ring. You can strip me however you want to; strip all the titles I have to my name. If I don’t win a championship, that means it’s all for nothing.

Norman’s current contract expires in 2020, but there is a clause that allows Norman to opt out after this season, if he so chooses. While it’s hard to imagine him making such a rash decision after a season marred by injuries and a heavyweight schedule, it might not be the worst idea. For Norman, or for the Redskins.

Norman turns 30 years old in three days. Historically, cornerbacks fall off, in terms of performance, after they stray outside of their twenties. Whether it be injuries or just their body slowing up, cornerbacks aren’t often the same when they get to be that age. And Norman was good for a while, but he’s not anywhere near the territory of Mike Haynes and Charles Woodson, who both had their best years in their thirties. He recently gave up his first 100 yard game of his career. And he didn’t look good doing it.

Is Norman regressing, or will we see him bounce back next year? And what does this mean for Washington? While we can speculate for the time being, the fact of the matter is that later days will yield the answer to us. For now, all we can do is sit by and hope that Norman finishes the 2017 campaign on a higher note.

Nike Texans Andre Johnson Red Alternate With 10th Patch NFL Elite Jersey

wholesale china jerseysThe evolution of professional football into a passing oriented sport has made the wide receiver position more critical since the turn of the century. Since then not many athletes have played that position better than former UM star Andre Johnson.

Bucky Brooks, an NFL.com analyst and scout, ranked his top-10 wide receiver prospects since 2001. Coming in at No. 2 on that list was Johnson who was drafted third overall by the Houston Texans in 2003. He trailed only Georgia Tech’s Calvin Johnson.

“It’s hard to find big-bodied receivers with the combination of size, speed, athleticism and ball skills Johnson displayed as the No. 1 receiver at ‘The U’ during the early 2000s,” Brooks said.

While a member of the Hurricanes from 2000-02, Johnson won the 2001 national championship and now ranks
At 6-foot-2, 230 pounds, Johnson “dominated opponents on the perimeter as a vertical playmaker with explosive route-running ability and exceptional ball skills,” Brooks said.

Speaking of the running ability, Johnson was also a star on the Miami track team. In 2002, he captured Big East titles in the 60-meter dash in 6.81 seconds and 100-meter dash in 10.59 seconds. That translated to a 4.40 40-yard dash on the football field.

His success at Miami then morphed into a stellar NFL career. Johnson made the Pro Bowl sevens times and is one of only 12 players in NFL history to reach 14,000 career receiving yards.

“Johnson is arguably the gold standard at the position,” Brooks said.

Andre Johnson was a prolific member of the Texans, and now the team is honoring him in a big way.

The former receiver will be inducted as the first member of Houston’s Ring of Honor, the team announced Tuesday.

Johnson’s induction will be on Nov. 19, when the Texans take on the Cardinals at NRG Stadium.

The Texans, who entered the NFL as an expansion team in 2002, drafted Johnson third overall in the 2003 draft. He spent 12 years in Houston and was selected to the Pro Bowl seven times.

Johnson spent 2015 with the Colts and played eight games with the Titans in 2016 before calling it a career. Of Johnson’s 1,062 career receptions, which rank 11th all-time in NFL history, all but 50 were with the Texans.

Johnson signed a one-day contract with the Texans in April so he could retire with the team.

Former Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is the brightest star in the young team’s history and will make the perfect foundation piece for their Ring of Honor.

On Nov. 19, 2017, the Houston Texans will begin the tradition of honoring the best players to grace the franchise with the inclusion of Andre Johnson in the Ring of Honor, per Pro Football Talk. No player has been placed in the Ring of Honor yet, allowing Johnson to start as a foundation piece for a team that he carried for over a decade.

In 12 seasons with the Texans, Johnson was often the lone offensive threat. He posted 1,012 receptions for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns during his tenure with Houston. He is 11th all-time in receiving yards and 11th all-time in receptions in his career. He also led the NFL in receptions twice (2006 and 2008), yards twice (2008 and 2009 when he topped 1500 both years), and receiving yards per game three times (2007, 2009 and 2010). His production led to seven Pro Bowls and two All-Pro selections. To say that Johnson left a mark as a player would be an understatement.

And Johnson did it all without a consistent quarterback threat. Matt Schaub‘s seven seasons as the starter were the high point.

That comes with the territory of being an expansion franchise, though. Johnson joined the Texans a season after they joined the NFL and was the face of the franchise for the next 12 seasons. From 2-14 to 12-4, Johnson was there through it all.

It isn’t every day that a team manages to find a player with the skills that Johnson possessed or the longevity to have such an outsized impact. The Texans struck gold in Johnson when they made him the third overall selection in 2003. The team immediately found a foundation on which to build.

Just as Johnson was the foundation for the Texans franchise in its early years, he will now be the foundation for the Ring of Honor in which the best of the best will be honored. He clawed his way to the NFL leader boards through grit and hard work and proved that anyone can reach the top no matter which team they play for. His franchise records (receptions, yards, and receiving touchdowns) and nearly insurmountable for the next decade — even with DeAndre Hopkins tearing it up.

Johnson signed a one-day contact in April to retire with the Texans, a team he helped create and mold. That move was an honor to his team and an honor to the fans. Now, he will be honored in return.

Redskins #10 Robert Griffin III Red Stitched NFL Jersey

If you’ve been watching your nearest sports ticker you most likely noticed that both Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III wholesale jersey outlet have been added to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats negotiation list.

The news elicited excitement among CFL fans — but not so fast, my friends. The move is more an indication of the players’ NFL opportunities than their CFL ones.

The vast majority of players put on a negotiation list never actually have contact with their would-be Canadian teams — never mind agree to terms and then make the roster. Tim Tebow made news when Jim Popp put him on the Montreal Alouettes list, but it was just a footnote when he was taken off.

Law of averages says both Kaepernick and Griffin will follow a similar path.

That hasn’t stopped Hamilton from trying, however. Under the leadership of Eric Tillman and Kent Austin, the team is developing a track record of getting in line for potential marquee QBs and already counts wholesale mesh jersey Johnny Manziel on the neg list.

What’s more, a closer look at those players shows this is no random endeavour. Kaepernick, Griffin and Manziel all profile best in read-option systems. All three were prolific passers in college. And all three are not comfortable playing under centre but are adept at playing in the shotgun or pistol.

In layman’s terms, their mobility makes them perfect for the Canadian game, and the average CFL offence would highlight their strengths — not accentuate their weaknesses.

That said, although Kaepernick and Griffin III could be great CFL players, chances are we’ll never see it come to fruition. As of writing this it would not be a mutually beneficial equation — there is little to no upside for the players in question.

For starters, both have lucrative endorsement deals contingent on them plying their trade in the NFL. Both will be motivated to wait things out and see if a team gets desperate because of injury or under-performance and gives them a call rather than be bound to a CFL contract.

What’s more, if an NFL team doesn’t take a chance on Kaepernick, he could do a speaking tour or write a book about his recent experiences and make more money than Hamilton could afford to pay him for a season’s work.

The lack of motivation isn’t just fiscal jersey china wholesale. It is logical.

There is nothing the Kaepernick or Griffin can do in the CFL to prove they can be a fit for an NFL team. This is not the equivalent of Doug Flutie or Warren Moon proving they can play the quarterback position as a pro — Kaepernick and RG3 have both already proven that.

Griffin was rookie of the year in 2012. Kapernick started in the Super Bowl in 2013. Both started for the majority of their teams’ games last year.

The question is are they still starter-capable players and, if so, is their baggage worth acquiring along with their skills?

With Griffin, that baggage includes a perceived self-promotional attitude and an inability to stay healthy. And with Kaepernick, it’s the attention his protest actions bring and questions about whether he can be accurate from the pocket.

Becoming a CFL all-star this year or next won’t do much to erase those questions.

(And before you run to the comments section below, yes, I know Vince Young decided to play in Saskatchewan. He’s also 34 and hasn’t played a meaningful NFL down in six years. Kaepernick is 29. Griffin is 27.)

Another thing to remember: Free agency opened just two weeks ago. Rosters are far from set and we haven’t even had the draft yet. If we are having this conversation in August and missing training camp for either is a possibility then the tenor of the conversation changes slightly, but not by much.

Right now the first and more logical step for each would be to welcome a role as an NFL backup and see where the chips fall.

For Kaepernick especially that call may never come as there is legitimate talk that he could be blackballed, which I feared would happen at the outset of free agency.

Spike Lee is already sounding the alarm.

And yesterday Donald Trump weighed in at a campaign rally in Kentucky, passing on an idea that NFL teams didn’t want to sign Kaepernick in an effort to avoid the U.S. president’s Twitter wrath.

But even the hottest of takes need time to simmer, and there’s still a lot of time for a Kaepernick market to develop. Adrian Peterson is a first-ballot Hall of Famer and he has yet to sign an NFL contract this off-season. It is still early.

From Hamilton’s perspective, the moves add up to a large Zach Collaros insurance policy. Collaros signed a three-year contract extension in June. When healthy he is 1A or 1B in the conversation for the best quarterback in the league along with Bo Levi Mitchell.

However, he won’t last forever and may not even last long. He has struggled with a variety of injuries in recent years and started only 10 games last season.

Hamilton is simply doing the due diligence in adding intriguing players to their neg list. But that move is one with the potential future in mind — not the present.

What it signals most is that both players’ NFL futures are presently uncertain. Not that they’ll realize their CFL potential any time soon, if at all.
