49ers go back to ’90s glory days with throwback alternates

San Francisco is going with an almost exact replica of the white uniforms it wore during its Super Bowl-winning 1994 season as part of the NFL’s 75th anniversary celebration. Those threads were so popular that they inspired a change in the 49ers’ primary look not long after.

Though Jones’ salaries over the next two years are not out of line with the market, both will be outside the top 10 among receivers. The Falcons are in win-now mode, and teams with that mindset want to avoid distractions. Atlanta just spent a mini-fortune on Ryan, and the last thing it wants is the QB’s top target absent from practice. So there could be a window for compromise.

Said a former colleague of Tepper: “He’s an asshole, to say the least. I had stuff thrown at me. He can be a nice guy off the desk, in the kitchen or walking to the car. It’s almost like Jekyll and Hyde, you didn’t know any given day who was going to walk through the door.”

After Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey in 2012, Tepper donated $230,000 in $100-value gift cards to residents affected by the storm. The giveaway was organized by Better Education Institute and Better Education for Kids, both of which were founded by Tepper.

Tepper has been critical of president Donald Trump. Just before the 2016 election, he told CNBC that “Trump masquerades as an angel of light, but he is the father of lies.” He previously had told the New York Post that Trump “may be demented, narcissistic and a scumbag.”

Tepper supported Barack Obama in the 2008 election and then Mitt Romney in 2012. He voted for Hillary Clinton for president in 2016 but supported Republicans in Cheap Reversible Jerseys congressional races that year.

Tepper has committed more than $125 million in Cheap Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys donations to Carnegie Mellon. He serves on the university’s Board of Trustees.

Browns pick up Damarious Randall’s fifth-year option

The Browns traded for defensive back Damarious Randall this offseason, and now they’ve secured his services for an extra year.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Browns are going to pick up the fifth-year option on Randall’s rookie contract.

The Browns don’t have a 2015 first-rounder of their own to pick up, having already pawned off Danny Shelton to the Patriots.

Michael Gallup, WR Colorado State: Dallas finally adds a receiver as the post-Dez era begins. The junior college transfer tore up the competition in two years in the Mountain West, posting 176 catches for 2,685 yards and 21 touchdowns. Gallup has an advanced handle on the position, adept at setting up defensive backs with precise route running while comfortably contorting his body to haul in difficult throws — often the kind that slip from Dak Prescott’s arm.
 
Waynes started nine games in his first two years with the Vikings before moving into a full-time starting role last season. He finished the year with 65 tackles and two interceptions and added seven more tackles in Minnesota’s two postseason games.

Waynes and Hughes are joined at cornerback by Xavier Rhodes, who was also a first-round pick, and 2016 second-rounder Mackensie Alexander.

Da’Shawn Hand was arrested for DUI in July 2017 when police reportedly found him asleep at the wheel of a parked (but running) car. While the arrest may have hurt his draft stock a little, Hand’s bigger on-field issues are that he’s strictly a two-gap defender and has limited experience and production. The experience problem is typical for Alabama defenders, who always get stuck behind other NFL-caliber defenders early in their college careers, but the huge, gifted Hand should have Cheap Authentic MLB Jerseys worked his way into the rotation more assertively before his final season.

Hand lacks penetrating quickness and (ironically) refined hand Best Cheap Jerseys From China technique, limiting his effectiveness as an edge-rusher. He’s a useful player, but the Lions need edge-rushing talent desperately, and that is not Hand’s strong suit.

San Francisco 49ers pick WR Dante Pettis at No. 44

Jimmy Garoppolo has a new receiving target.

The San Francisco 49ers selected Washington wide receiver and returner extraordinaire Dante Pettis with the 44th pick in the 2018 draft. The Niners traded up with the Washington Redskins to snag the Husky return man.

Pettis is the fifth receiver off the board this weekend and the second of the night after Courtland Sutton went to the Broncos.

In Pettis, the Niners are getting an speedy, elusive receiver who doubles as an elite return man. The Husky product broke the NCAA record for career return touchdowns (9), recording four in his senior season alone.

It’s not that hard to tune out because I really don’t read anything. I don’t understand why you’d get yourself worked up at 9 p.m. on a Tuesday because you’re getting into an argument on Twitter with somebody. I’m not keeping like an Arya hit list,’ Rosen said, referencing a vengeful character on his new favorite show.

I just want to go out and play football.

But during Arkansas’ loss at home to Auburn on Oct. 21, Ragnow suffered a high ankle sprain. It knocked him out for the final five games of his senior season, one that ended with just four victories and ultimately cost coach Bret Bielema his job.

However, that injury didn’t deter Ragnow in his belief he would be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft, a belief that was validated on Thursday when the Detroit Lions selected Ragnow (6-foot-5, 312 pounds) with the 20th overall selection.

To be honest, no, Ragnow said when asked if he was surprised the injury didn’t hurt his draft stock. I believe in my abilities and I knew that if I could just prove that my ankle was back to being healthy, I think the film didn’t lie. I’m just so excited that I’ve gotten to this point and here is where I am.

Where he’ll be is with the Lions, who have invested heavily in rebuilding the offensive line since Bob Quinn took over as general manager. He selected starters Taylor Decker and Graham Glasgow in 2016 before signing T.J. Lang and Rick Wagner to lucrative free-agent contracts last season.

Now, the Lions get the versatile Ragnow, who, like Glasgow, can play center or either guard spot. And when they met with him at the NFL Combine in March, there was little Cheap Football Jerseys Xxl doubt what he brought to Cheap Hockey Jerseys Canada the table.

Rosen was my top-ranked quarterback in this year’s draft, and the Cardinals traded up five spots from No.15 to get him.

Rosen is the fourth quarterback taken in the first 10 picks. He, Mayfield, Darnold and Allen are going to be tied at the hip when we analyze this draft in five years.

Part of the reason Rosen wasn’t taken higher is his outgoing personality and his outspoken ways when it comes to politics and, frankly, anything else. If he has early success in the league, Rosen could very well become the best Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys soundbite in the NFL.

Alex Smith’s first three games in Washington are against teams whose quarterbacks combined to play nine games in 2017 — at Arizona (Sam Bradford, two games), the Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys Colts at home (Andrew Luck, zero) and the Packers at home (Aaron Rodgers, seven). His Chiefs replacement, Patrick Mahomes, starts his season with four road games in his first six weeks: at the Chargers, Steelers, Broncos (with Case Keenum) and Patriots. One of the home games is against the Jaguars.

The Colts get to greet their almost-head coach Josh McDaniels when they go to New England in Week 5 on Thursday night. Seattle welcomes back Richard Sherman in Week 13 on Sunday night when the 49ers visit. And the Patriots and Steelers play in Pittsburgh again in Week 15 … under different catch rules than last season.

I’m not going to pretend to know a lot about Miller. What I do know is that this run on offensive and defensive linemen is not good for the Lions, who are trying to trade down in the draft, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

If the Lions are unable to trade down, their hand may be forced, and you could see them take a skill position player. That’s something they likely wanted to do later on.

The Bills traded the 22nd overall pick and a third round selection (65th overall) for the right to move up and take Edmunds, who likely was near the top of the Lions draft board as their pick approaches.

Edmunds is a linebacker that can go sideline to sideline and has tremendous size (6’4, 253 pounds) to match his 4.5 speed.

Guessing what Bob Quinn is going to do at the NFL Draft has never been easy. It certainly wasn’t this time around, either.

NFL Draft: Giants fans cheer Saquon Barkley pick

This is not the sort of thing that would have occurred to them on draft night, but it’s true: Barkley and Darnold will be linked for the rest of their lives. If both go onto great NFL careers, it will be seen as a wonderful night for two rival teams that had suffered through some grim days.

But if one succeeds and one doesn’t?

That will shape the narrative of what happened here in Dallas. The Giants and the Jets haven’t had a draft night like this in a quarter century, and they are staking their future that they’ve found the player who can elevate their franchise to a Super Bowl.

They were among the first to congratulate each other on Thursday night. Barkley was taking a photo with his family backstage at the draft as Darnold, fresh off his bro hug with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, was walking down the same hallway.

Barkley rushed for over 190 yards five times, had seven games with over 200 yards from scrimmage, and eclipsed 300 rushing and receiving yards against Iowa last season.

It’s no surprise that as Barkley was compiling yards and touchdowns, opposing defenses sold out to stop him, which forced Moorhead to get creative and move Barkley around in the formation either in the slot or wide receiver stacks pre-snap to disguise how he would utilize the 6-foot, 235 pound back and create mismatches. 

The challenge was to get Saquon touches, Moorhead said. I know a lot of people were caught up in the number of carries and that he only had over 20 carries in a few games… But, when defensive coordinators sole focus was taking him out of the game and get the ball out of his hands in the running game, we had to find more ways to get him the ball out in open space. One of those ways was a receiver, either out of the backfield or in the slot. His productivity level was through the roof in both of those phases. I think that certainly translates to the next level.

There were several instances over the last two seasons when Moorhead used opposing defenses over-aggressiveness to stop Barkley against them be employing him as a Cheap NFL Jerseys USA decoy in Best Site For Cheap Jerseys run-pass options astutely sold by mobile quarterback Trace McSorely.
