Good Quality Youth Timmy Jernigan NFL Eagles Elite Jerseys Cheap Outlet

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles ensured that the power interior line combination of Tim Jernigan and Fletcher Cox will remain intact by signing Jernigan to a four-year extension Thursday that runs through 2021. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the deal is worth $48 million and includes $26 million fully guaranteed.

That’s good news for an Eagles defense that has been powered largely by the play of the defensive line. Jernigan, a 25-year-old Florida State product, adapted almost instantly to defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s attack scheme after being acquired from the Baltimore Ravens in the offseason. He has a team-high eight tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks and five hurries.

You would be hard-pressed to find a better defensive tackle tandem in the NFL. But the Eagles are paying a big price for it. They signed Cox to a six-year deal worth over $100 million in 2016 with over $36 million fully guaranteed. After the Jernigan signing, they have more than $62 million in guaranteed money committed to two players along the interior.

On one hand, it makes sense to pay your best players regardless of position. And it is absolutely true that Schwartz’s scheme is predicated on the defensive front being a disruptive force without the assistance of extra pass-rushers. To that end, they’re investing in an area that both the organization and the defensive coordinator put a lot of value in.

It does, however, run counter to a philosophy held by some around the league that big dollars should be reserved for more critical positions such as quarterback, offensive tackle, defensive end and cornerback.

The Eagles had what they called an “optionality” approach this offseason where they acquired players with short-term deals such as Jernigan and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, giving themselves the choice to part ways with little harm if they proved not to be a fit or try to lock them up long term if they were. The only issue is some major dollars typically have to be dished out to players who are hot while nearing free agency.

This is a significant commitment for a team that has not been in the greatest salary-cap position over the past year or two. But it’s hard to argue with the 8-1 roster that executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman has put together. Jernigan has been a key piece of that.

PHILADELPHIA — When Philadelphia Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman was asked about the strengths of the 2017 NFL draft class at this year’s scouting combine, he started with the running backs.

“Certainly when you look at the running back position, we think it’s a possible historic class [in respect to] how many guys and where they would have gone in previous drafts,” he said.

Early returns suggest Roseman might have been on to something. Week 1 showcased a youth movement at running back featuring big outings from several rookies, including Dalvin Cook of the Minnesota Vikings (127 rushing yards), Leonard Fournette of the Jacksonville Jaguars (26 carries, 100 yards, 1 TD), Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (92 all-purpose yards) and Tarik Cohen of the Chicago Bears (158 total yards, 1 TD). Others, such as Chris Carson of the Seattle Seahawks (6.5-yard average on six carries) have been showing promise in their own right.

The top performance of the week belongs to Kareem Hunt, who racked up 246 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns for the Kansas City Chiefs in a 42-27 win over the defending-champion New England Patriots. Coach Doug Pederson said recently Hunt was one of the backs the Eagles looked at during the pre-draft process.

“I liked him. I did,” he said. “I thought he had a good career there in college. [He was] one of the guys that was definitely someone that we had our eye on.”

They’ll get an up-close look at Hunt this week, as the Eagles play at Kansas City on Sunday.

The Toledo product was selected by the Chiefs in the third round, 86th overall. The Eagles originally held the 74th overall slot but traded it to the Baltimore Ravens for starting defensive tackle Tim Jernigan.

They also had heavy interest in Cook and were considering trading up from No. 43 overall in the second round to get him but balked at the price of a fourth-round pick. The Vikings met the Cincinnati Bengals’ demands and snagged Cook two spots before the Eagles, who ended up selecting cornerback Sidney Jones with their second-round pick and wide receiver Mack Hollins with the fourth-rounder that they held on to. It will be a while until we know whether that was a wise decision.
Roseman & Co. later traded up in the fourth to select Donnel Pumphrey, the undersized (5-foot-9, 176 pounds) but prolific running back out of San Diego State. Pumphrey struggled in the preseason and was on the roster bubble approaching cut-downs. Ultimately, the front office decided not to give up on their investment so soon and kept him on the 53-man roster along with four other backs — LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles, Wendell Smallwood and undrafted rookie Corey Clement. Pumphrey was the lone inactive back in Week 1.

The Eagles were unable to establish the run in an opening-day win over the Washington Redskins, finishing with 58 yards on 24 carries (2.4 YPC). Quarterback Carson Wentz, meanwhile, threw the ball 39 times.

Wentz set a franchise record with 607 pass attempts as a rookie in part because of an inconsistent ground game. The plan this offseason was to beef up the backfield talent so the Eagles could have more balance and take some of the heat off their young signal-caller. It’s questionable whether that was accomplished.

It’s early, and still possible Pumphrey develops over the coming weeks and months or Smallwood takes off or Blount rounds into form and looks like the guy that led the league last year with 18 touchdowns for the Patriots. But the early signs aren’t great, and it’s worth wondering whether the Eagles will look back with regret at a running back class they knew could be special.

$15 Cheap Authentic Stitched NFL Ron Jaworski Jersey

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick received high praise from ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski and managed to take it in stride.
“I truly believe Colin Kaepernick could be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever,” Jaworski said Wednesday on ESPN. “I love his skill set. I think the sky’s the limit.”

Kaepernick was asked how he handles such lofty projections.

“I’m working,” he responded. “To me, it’s a great honor he said that. I’m very flattered by it. But at the same time, I haven’t played a full season yet.”

Kaepernick took over as the 49ers starting quarterback after Alex Smith was injured last season and led San Francisco to the Super Bowl.

He emerged as one of the NFL’s most potent dual-threat quarterbacks, throwing for 1,814 yards and 10 touchdowns in seven regular-season games and rushing for 415 yards and five touchdowns.

He threw four touchdown passes in three postseason games and rushed for 181 yards in the NFC division playoffs against Green Bay, setting the single-game NFL playoff rushing record for a quarterback.

The 49ers are considered a Super Bowl contender this season and Kaepernick, after just 10 NFL starts, is one of the league’s biggest stars.

Kaepernick also appears on the cover of the latest GQ magazine.

PHILADELPHIA — Carson Wentz got things rolling with his two new receivers Thursday, throwing for touchdowns to Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in the Philadelphia Eagles’ 38-31 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins.

Smith’s first catch in an Eagles uniform was a big one, as he took advantage of busted coverage for a 50-yard TD early in the first quarter. Wentz began targeting Jeffery later in the period, finding him for a 20-yard gain before coming back to him for a 15-yard touchdown down the seam.

It was far from a perfect day for the Eagles’ offense. Wentz absorbed a number of shots in his quarter’s worth of work, the offensive line leaking for a third straight week.

QB depth chart: Wentz ended 6-of-10 for 129 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He was under pressure on more than 60 percent of his throws Thursday, according to Pro Football Focus tracking. One of his most impressive snaps was also among the most chaotic, as he stumbled as he dropped back, regained his footing, spun to avoid contact and flung the ball across the field to Zach Ertz, who rumbled for a sizable gain.

His preseason now complete, Wentz finished 16-of-23 for 241 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.

Nick Foles continues to deal with elbow soreness in his throwing arm and missed the game. That injury is starting to become a concern with the regular season fast approaching. Matt McGloin and Dane Evans got the work in his absence.

When it was starters vs. starters, the Eagles looked …: Up and down on defense. Cornerback Ronald Darby has drawn nothing but positive reviews since being acquired from the Buffalo Bills. But he appeared to mistime a jump on a 72-yard DeVante Parker catch-and-run that led to a Jay Ajayi TD and was flagged for pass interference on Kenny Stills deep in Eagles territory to set up another Dolphins score. One positive? Defensive end Vinny Curry, who has had a quiet summer, came charging off the right side and jarred the ball loose from Jay Cutler on Miami’s first drive.

One reason to be concerned: The O-line is expected to be a strength but has been shaky through three preseason games. Wentz took some shots, including one when he was bent backward by linebacker Lawrence Timmons during a pass attempt. His interception was forced by defensive end William Hayes, who got in deep on tackle Lane Johnson and tipped the ball as it was coming out of Wentz’s hands. This group needs to improve before the opener at Washington on Sept. 10.

That guy could start: Running back Wendell Smallwood showed the burst that opened eyes during training camp. Back from a hamstring injury, he had four carries for 28 yards (7.0 average). Offensive coordinator Frank Reich said this week Smallwood has the makings of a three-down back, though he’ll have to straighten out his pass protection to stay on the field on third down.
Rookie watch: First-round pick Derek Barnett got the start in Brandon Graham’s absence (elbow). He had a pretty quiet night overall. Cornerback Rasul Douglas dropped Damien Williams for a big loss, torpedoing into the backfield to chop down the back. Receiver Mack Hollins had five catches for 44 yards.

Kendricks for MVP: Linebacker Mychal Kendricks had his third interception of the summer, snaring a Matt Moore pass that was tipped by teammate C.J. Smith, and returned it 31 yards for a touchdown. Those three picks match his career regular-season total. The subject of heavy trade speculation, Kendricks looks like a motivated player.

Injury update: Linebacker Jordan Hicks (quad), Graham (elbow) and Foles (elbow) were among those who did not suit up. Rookie linebacker Nathan Gerry left with a hamstring injury.

Cheap NFL Stitched Lane Johnson Philadelphia Eagles Womens Jerseys From China

Philadelphia Eagles tackle Lane Johnson is not taking any chances.

He says that supplements are “totally out” of his regimen now after being hit with a 10-game suspension last season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs a second time. He believes the positive test last year was the result of taking an amino acid he purchased online that was contaminated. One more positive test, and he’d face a two-year league ban, so he’s doing things the old-fashioned way now to ensure there are no “mishaps.”

“The deal with supplements is it’s supposed to supplement your diet, but if you get everything in your diet [that you need], you don’t have to do it,” said Johnson.

Fried food and sweets had to be largely cut out as well. Instead it’s chicken, beef, fish and potatoes, and plenty of vegetables like kale and spinach. Johnson explained that one of the reasons NFL athletes take certain supplements is to help fight against inflammation to protect their joints “because the season is so long.” He plans on relying on good nutrition to keep his body feeling its best throughout the 16-game regular season and potentially beyond. While it’s to be determined exactly how that goes, he’s pleased with the early results: Johnson says he is as heavy he’s ever been at 325 pounds, and feeling stronger than ever.

The 27-year-old Oklahoma product was one of six players mentioned by Doug Pederson last week when the coach was asked who stood out during OTAs. He’s been working at left tackle in place of Jason Peters, who has stayed away from these voluntary practices. The expectation is that Peters will return for this week’s mandatory minicamp (June 13-15), meaning Johnson will go back to his normal station on the right side.

The idea is to shift Johnson to Carson Wentz’s blind side when the 35-year-old Peters calls it a career or moves on.

“I’d say I’m a top-10 tackle in the league, right or left,” said Johnson. “I’m not trying to be arrogant or anything, but if you go watch the film, whenever I’m playing … my deal is just stay on the field.”
Availability has been the one major issue in a young career that has shown plenty of promise. His suspension in 2016 proved to be an absolute crusher for an Eagles team operating with a rookie quarterback and a first-year head coach at the helm. They were 5-1 when Johnson was in the lineup and 2-8 during his time away. To suggest those records were solely tied to Johnson’s presence would be oversimplifying things, but it was a significant factor.

Back in the mix, Johnson is bullish on the Eagles this season.

“This is the best I’ve seen the team look since I’ve been here. Not talking out of my ass. I feel like we’re in a good spot,” he said.

Whether that holds true depends in large part of Johnson holding up his end of the bargain.

“I’m just going to go out there and go show people what kind of tackle I am,” he said. “I think I’m one of the best in the league. Go out there and do a lot less talking and just show people what I can do.”

The Philadelphia Eagles made a surprise move Wednesday by trading veteran offensive lineman Allen Barbre to the Denver Broncos for a conditional 2019 draft pick.

A source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that it’s a seventh-round pick.

The trade came hours after the Eagles announced they intended to release Barbre.

The Broncos will not surrender the draft pick if Barbre fails to make the roster, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Legwold. Barbre will compete for a spot as a guard in Denver, which could have as many as four new starters on the offensive line.

EDITOR’S PICKS
Broncos make trade to add Allen Barbre to offensive line competition
Allen Barbre is expected to compete for the left guard job on a Broncos team that could have as many as four new starters on the offensive line.
“I don’t see why not. I have played in multiple systems,” Barbre told Denver7. “I know what they are trying to do there. It’s up to me to pick up the terminology quickly.

“But I am excited to get there. This is a great opportunity.”

Barbre, 33, started 12 games last season for Philadelphia, playing left guard and some right tackle. He missed part of the spring with a calf injury. When available, he shared first-team reps at left guard with second-year player Isaac Seumalo.

Seumalo is going into training camp as the starter, offensive coordinator Frank Reich revealed earlier Wednesday.

“Isaac’s the starter and then there’s just competition from there. That’s the great thing about training camp, the great thing about this business: It’s just so stinking competitive,” Reich said. “It’s what the guys love about it. It’s what we love about it. So, again, it’ll play itself out.”

The trade came on the day veterans reported to camp.

“Allen Barbre is a pro’s pro,” Eagles executive Howie Roseman said in a statement issued before the trade was announced. “Not only did he help the team with his solid play as a starter at left guard, but his ability to step up and play multiple positions helped us battle through some difficult situations.”

The Eagles appear to have good depth along the interior. They signed former first-round pick Chance Warmack in free agency and re-upped fellow veteran Stefen Wisniewski.

Also on Wednesday, the Eagles waived defensive end Marcus Smith, their first-round selection (26th overall) in the 2014 draft. Smith was due a roster bonus of nearly $600,000 on the third day of training camp. Philadelphia avoided paying that and gets about $1.5 million in cap relief with the move.

In a corresponding move, the Eagles signed linebacker Steven Daniels to a three-year deal.

Wholesale NFL Ryan Mathews Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys Cheap For Sale

When Philadelphia Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount hops on the scale in late July, a good chunk of change will be on the line.

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Blount can earn $50,000 if he weighs between 240-250 pounds on the team’s reporting day for training camp.

Blount is listed at 6-foot, 250 pounds on the team’s website. At the end of the Eagles’ mandatory minicamp, Blount said he would spend the next five weeks training “wherever I’m at,” noting that he had a lot of moving to do as he makes the transition from New England to Philadelphia. Asked what he weighed, Blount only responded, “I’m gonna be training.”

He has plenty of incentive to do so.

Blount was a workhorse back for the Patriots last season, setting career highs in carries (299), yards (1,161) and touchdowns (18). His 18 rushing touchdowns were the most in the NFL since Adrian Peterson set that number in 2009.

The 30-year-old signed a one-year, $1.25 million deal with the Eagles in May, joining a backfield in desperate need of a lead back. Ryan Mathews (neck) is expected to be cut once he is cleared medically, creating a need for a physical, downhill runner to go with the lighter Darren Sproles (5-foot-6, 190 pounds), rookie Donnel Pumphrey (5-foot-8, 169 pounds) and unproven second-year back Wendell Smallwood.

Blount fits the bill. He rumbled for 518 yards after first contact last season, good for sixth in the NFL, per ESPN Stats & Information, and picked up 67 first downs (fifth in the league) with a 50 percent conversion rate on third-down attempts.

Blount is not the first back to have a weight incentive in his contract. For example, Eddie Lacy’s contract with the Seahawks includes a clause that could earn him up to $385,000 based on the results of seven different weigh-ins. In May, Lacy had to be at 255 pounds or less to earn the incentive $55,000, which he did, weighing in at 253. In June, he made another $55,000 for being at or below the 250-pound mark.

Cheap Nike NFL Philadelphia Eagles Caleb Sturgis Jerseys From China 2017

The Philadelphia Eagles open training camp July 27 at the NovaCare Complex in Philadelphia. Here’s a 53-man roster projection:

Quarterbacks (3): Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Matt McGloin

Foles is back for his second stint with the Eagles, replacing Chase Daniel in the backup role. He becomes part of an expansive support system for Wentz, who is firmly entrenched as the team’s starting QB.

Running backs (4): LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles, Donnel Pumphrey, Wendell Smallwood

A nice blend of power and speed in this backfield now that Blount (6 feet, 250 pounds) is in the fold. This is a big summer for Smallwood, the second-year back out of West Virginia. Rookie Corey Clement will try to push him for a roster spot in training camp.

Wide receiver (5): Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith, Nelson Agholor, Jordan Matthews, Mack Hollins

NFL Training Camp Coverage
Who’s on the bubble? Which rookie could surprise? NFL Nation reporters take a crack at a preliminary 53-man roster and starting lineup projection and preview what to expect in training camp for every team.
Hollins, a rookie out of UNC, impressed in OTAs. Fellow rookie Shelton Gibson, meanwhile, had his share of struggles and will need to have a strong showing this summer to claim a spot. Marcus Johnson, a second-year receiver out of Texas, is a name to keep in mind if they go with six receivers on the 53-man. If this projection proves true, the Eagles will have only two receiver holdovers from last season — Agholor and Matthews. Quite an overhaul for a unit that finished 31st in receiving yards and last in drop rate.

Tight end (3): Zach Ertz, Brent Celek, Trey Burton

Head coach Doug Pederson likes to have someone on the roster who can flex into the fullback position if need be. Perhaps a TE/FB will emerge before summer’s end. Anthony Denham out of Utah had a couple nice moments during offseason training.

Offensive line (10): Jason Peters, Lane Johnson, Allen Barbre, Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks, Isaac Seumalo, Chance Warmack, Stefen Wisniewski, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Dillon Gordon

There is some starting-caliber depth in this group, particularly along the interior. The biggest question mark is at backup tackle. Peters, 35, needs to stay healthy and Johnson needs to stay off the suspension list to ensure this line matches the high expectations that surround it.

Defensive line (9): Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, Tim Jernigan, Vinny Curry, Chris Long, Derek Barnett, Destiny Vaeao, Steven Means, Elijah Qualls

We’re projecting DT Beau Allen (pectoral) receives an injury designation to start the year. That could open the door for Qualls, the 6-foot-1, 321-pound rookie out of Washington. This could be the year the Eagles part with former first-round pick Marcus Smith.

Linebacker (6): Jordan Hicks, Nigel Bradham, Mychal Kendricks, Najee Goode, Kamu Grugier-Hill, Joe Walker

There have been trade talks surrounding Kendricks for a good portion of the offseason. I’m not sure how wise it is to weaken what is already shaky linebacker depth, especially given that Bradham could face disciplinary action from the league in relation to his arrests last year. Perhaps a player-for-player swap would be the move in a potential Kendricks deal.

Cornerback (6): Jalen Mills, Rasul Douglas, Patrick Robinson, Ron Brooks, Aaron Grymes, C.J. Smith
Rookie Sidney Jones (Achilles) could receive an injury designation to start the year, so we’ll keep him off the list. Douglas, a rookie out of West Virginia, and former CFL player Grymes had pretty good springs. With some major question marks about the quality of this group, the Eagles desperately need players to step up.

Safety (4): Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod, Chris Maragos, Terrence Brooks

The first three seem like locks. Brooks looks the part and opened a few eyes during OTAs and minicamp. The former Raven could land a roster spot with a strong preseason.

Specialists (3): Caleb Sturgis, Donnie Jones, Jon Dorenbos

Same group as last year. The full-time magic gig will have to wait for Dorenbos, who agreed to a new deal with the Eagles last season.

Cheap Authentic NFL Philadelphia Eagles Jordan Hicks Jerseys Online 2017

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed on Monday that middle linebacker Jordan Hicks broke a bone in his hand while on his honeymoon earlier this summer, an injury that required a “minor procedure.” Hicks will be limited to start training camp.

“He’s a veteran player, understands his role, I’m not going to rush him out there and try to reinjure that thing,” said Pederson, who stated that he doesn’t expect his linebacker to miss any time.

Hicks’ injury reportedly occurred while getting out of a pool during his honeymoon in Greece in late June.

Hicks missed half of his rookie season in 2015 with a torn pectoral muscle. He also dealt with significant injuries at the University of Texas, including a torn Achilles, a hip flexor and a fractured foot.

Hicks, 25, was able to play all 16 games last season and established himself as a foundational piece of the Eagles defense. He had 85 tackles, five interceptions, a sack and 11 passes defenses while manning the middle for defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. His five interceptions led the team and were the most among NFL linebackers. He now has seven picks in 24 professional games.

Pederson added that wide receiver Jordan Matthews could be limited in the early stages of training camp as well as he continues to deal with knee tendinitis.

“I’m not concerned. I know Jordan’s work ethic, I know the type of person and player that he is, and we’ve just got to stay on top of it, obviously,” Pederson said. “He’s been rehabbing all spring, all summer … just another one that we’ll monitor as we go.”

Matthews, 25, suffered what was termed a bone bruise in his left knee during training camp last August. He was hobbled by various injuries throughout the season, including a sprained ankle that he suffered in late November. He was also sidelined for much of the spring. Nelson Agholor received the bulk of his reps in the slot and really stood out.

Cheap Authentic Carson Wentz Womens Jersey Online

Now sufficiently armed, the Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive line was able to join quarterback Carson Wentz in his element.

Wentz bought high-end Beretta shotguns for his O-line for Christmas. They were still in the process of being customized at the time, so Wentz sent a text message to the group with a picture of the guns attached. It appears they have come in.

Had a blast with the o-line shooting some guns and eating some steak and potatoes #flyeaglesfly
A post shared by Carson Wentz (@cj_wentz11) on May 2, 2017 at 6:31pm PDT
Jason Kelce, Isaac Seumalo, Allen Barbre and Dillon Gordon (wearing a throwback jersey from his LSU days) appear to be among those pictured. Seumalo admitted upon receiving Wentz’s gift that he hadn’t held a gun before, but “Carson said he’d teach me how to use it and all that good stuff.”

It appears Wentz stayed true to his word.

Wentz spends a good portion of his downtime with a gun in his hands, it seems. He was lying in a cornfield hunting geese when he got the call saying he would be the team’s starter after Sam Bradford was traded to the Minnesota Vikings. We also learned that he went hunting with baseball star Mike Trout at one point last year.

This offseason has been no different. Wentz has a YouTube channel called “Wentz Bros Outdoors” that shows him and members of his inner circle doing everything from dusting clay pigeons to shooting snow geese in Arkansas.
There’s even one of Wentz bow-hunting deer during a couple down days last season.

As the offensive linemen are learning, if you’re hanging with Wentz outside of football, there’s at least a decent chance that a firearm is involved.
