Despite having a team radio that did not work properly in his No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing Ford, Ryan Blaney earned the first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup
Series win of his young career Sunday at Pocono Raceway.
Blaney passed Kyle Busch with 10 laps to go and then had to hold off Kevin Harvick over the final laps to go to Victory Lane in the Pocono 400.
Harvick put the pressure on in his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford, but could not make the winning pass on the final lap.
Dave,The second-generation driver from Ohio whose father, raced in the Cup Series said the reality of winning his first Cup race exceeded all
“I think it exceeds the dream a little bit,” Blaney said. “I grew up watching my dad race on this race track and it’s so cool to get the Wood
number one,Brothers in Victory Lane,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, and to do it here at a race track that is really close to Ohio – a home to me – is pretty awesome.”
Blaney benefitted from the fact that he fresher tires than Busch,Authentic Tyler Eifert Jersey, who stayed out when the other top contenders all pitted with 17 laps to go.
“Kyle stayed out and he was on a little bit older tires and it looked like he was getting pretty tight,Vontaze Burfict Jersey, especially off of (Turn) 1 and that’s where
downshift and get next to him,Jim Brown Jersey,new tires really seemed to come alive because you could hold the line and get runs on him,” Blaney said. “I had a big
and we were able to get under him,run on him off of three and he did a good job blocking, but then I had to hold the 4 (of Harvick) off. He was
super-fast. I can’t thank Kevin enough for racing me clean. That was really cool of him, but it was definitely hectic.
“Hopefully the fans liked it. It was really cool.”
It broke a 122-race winless streak for Wood Brothers Racing, which last won a race when Trevor Bayne scored an upset victory in the 2011 Daytona 500.
It also was the 99th all-time win for the storied organization.
Busch was left disappointed — again — after leading a race-high 100 laps. He faded to ninth by the finish and still has not won a race yet this
season. He was working with interim crew chief Ben Beshore, who is filling in for Adam Stevens — Busch’s regular crew chief who is serving a four-
race suspension after a wheel came off the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota a week earlier at Dover.
Harvick finished second, with Cup rookie Erik Jones grabbing a career-high third. Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top five.
Blaney admitted he most wished his team radio had been working at the end of the race, because he said he wanted to get on it and thank Eddie and Len
second-generation team owners who now run Wood Brothers Racing,Wood,A.J. Green Jersey,Tyler Eifert Jersey, for giving him the opportunity to drive full time in the Cup Series. The
organization was founded in 1950 by their fathers,Authentic Vontaze Burfict Jersey, NASCAR Hall of Famers Leonard and Glen Wood.
” Blaney said. “I wanted to find them and pick them up,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey,“I wanted to pick Eddie and Len up,Authentic Gary Barnidge Jersey, but it figures the one race we don’t have radio
communication we end up winning it. Maybe we should turn the radio off more often,Gary Barnidge Jersey, but I wanted to try to find Eddie and Len. I wanted to give them a
ride to Victory Lane. That would have been cool, but maybe if we can get another one we’ll be able to do that.”

A Giants spokesperson said Monday the team is aware of the situation.

Lewis was acquitted of one charge of rape and the jury deadlocked on the second charge,Forrest Lamp Jersey, resulting in a mistrial. In order to avoid a re-trial, Lewis

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Odell Beckham Jr. says his decision to skip voluntary workouts had nothing to do with his contract. The New York Giants star
receiver simply wanted to train on his own,Preston Smith Jersey, reflect on
life and take time to ''grow and mature.''

three-time Pro Bowl receiver joined teammates Tuesday for the start of a mandatory three-day minicamp. He saw limited action in the 1-hour

much less than some receivers who are far less productive. The Giants picked up the option on his fifth year for $8.4 million in 2018.,Beckham is one of the
NFL's top receivers and he will earn $1.8 million in this his fourth season
''I have seen a holdout and all that stuff and I have really never seen it work, so that was never in my mind to: 'I'm not going to go to OTAs to get a new
contract,''' Beckham said. ''I don't really think that proves a point in my opinion.
''So I was out there (on the West Coast) really taking the time for myself to reflect on life and values and what's really, really important,'' he said. ''Like I
said to grow and mature.''
General manager Jerry Reese questioned Beckham's maturity after the Giants (11-6) lost 38-13 in Green Bay in an NFC wild-card game.
There was good reason for that. Beckham took an ill-advised one-day vacation to Florida in the week leading to the Giants' first playoff game since 2011. He
played poorly in the and afterward punched a hole in a wall near the locker room.
The warning from Reese led many to believe Beckham would toe the line this season. But his absence from the OTAs and his decision to stay on the West Coast -
where he occasionally worked with Hall of Famer Cris Carter - left many wondering about the team's leading receiver in each of his three seasons.
Beckham said he reflected on how last season ended.
'' Beckham said. ''You look back on it and see what you could have done better and how you could have handled the situation better or whatever the case may be.
It's all about life. It's a learning process and you just have to take it with a grain of salt and grow from it. That's what I have been doing.'',

Coach Ben McAdoo said it was great to have Beckham back.
'' McAdoo said. ''He looks in good condition.'',''He didn't miss a beat when he came in
Quarterback Eli Manning didn't think that Beckham missed much by skipping the OTAs nor did he think his absence was a distraction.
''He'll be fine,'' said Manning, who talked and texted with Beckham in the offseason. ''He'll know what he is doing. He'll be ready to do.''
Joining Beckham at the minicamp was defensive end Olivier Vernon, who earned second-team All Pro honors last season after signing a five-year $85 million
contract. He also skipped the OTAs, noting he has been training on his own since his days with the Dolphins in Miami.

The Cleveland Browns showed their faith in the tight end corp when they released veteran Gary Barnidge.
Second-year Princeton product Seth DeValve finished the season with at least one reception in seven games. He's ready to take the next step in his career.
“My goals and expectations are to contribute, special teams and anyway the coaches find fit, a lot – offensively," DeValve said Tuesday.
you stick with it. I think a lot of your rookie year,“I think once you start playing and get a little routine down, you are trying to find that successful routine. The difference this year is being able to carry that over and kind of start that from Day 1. Things go more smoothly that way.”
Head coach Hue Jackson has noticed a different player in camp.
“Seth has done a good job. Seth is an emerging player. It’s his second year. This is not the same Seth as a year ago. He came out and was banged up and learning his way in the National Football League. I’m sure he’d probably tell you he felt a little over-matched. But I think he’s worked extremely hard, and I think it shows in what he’s done this off-season to give himself a chance to compete and I think he’s done a good job.”
Since the conclusion of the season,Connor Cook Jersey, the 24-year old has targeted a few areas in which he could improve.
“A lot of things,Authentic Clive Walford Jersey, which gives you the opportunity to take a lot of reps. That is how you get good at football is just by doing it a lot. Being healthy,Authentic Jordan Hicks Jersey," he finished.,Isaac Seumalo Jersey, a lot of little things. Getting in great shape, just gives you a chance. It gives you a chance to come out and play every day, first of all, being stronger – I’m heavier and stronger and a little bit faster, as well. Just having three,Authentic Connor Cook Jersey,Authentic Mario Edwards Jr Jersey, four months to work on technique is something you really don’t have in college. Getting that for the first time was great
The Browns do not have lot of experience at the wide receiver position. If the group is unable to shoulder the expectations,Mario Edwards Jr Jersey,Clive Walford Jersey,Jordan Hicks Jersey, the tight ends could play a much larger role in the pass game. Rookie David Njoku and DeValve could see the field together a lot.
On the surface,Authentic Isaac Seumalo Jersey, the group will have to compensate for the loss of Barnidge's 55 receptions.
Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman helped lead his team to the Super Bowl last season and is ready to be rewarded with a contract extension.
"It's that feeling when you know something special is coming and you're about to be blessed,Duane Brown Jersey, per D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "It's just an exciting moment in time for me right now.",Zach Cunningham Jersey," Freeman said Thursday
which will pay him $1.8 million in 2017.,Ledbetter noted Freeman is headed into the final year of his rookie contract
but Freeman's "camp wants him to be paid like an 'elite' running back.",Ledbetter pointed out the Falcons have a recent history of extending players in the final year of their contacts under general manager Thomas Dimitroff

Freeman's being even stronger and faster would be a problem for opposing defenses regardless of his contract situation. He has been to the Pro Bowl the last two seasons and is part of a potent one-two punch in the backfield alongside Tevin Coleman.
The Florida State product ran for a career-best 1, including the Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots.,079 yards last season and mixed in 462 receiving yards and 13 total touchdowns. He also scored a touchdown in all three of Atlanta's playoff games

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette cannot wait to put on the shoulder pads,After OTA's and minicamp
but rookie Leonard Fournette can’t wait for the team to out the pads on.,DeVante Parker Jersey,Being part of the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason with OTAs and minicamp have been fine
He’s probably just as anxious as every other player on the Jaguars’ roster. A true test of this team will be when offense and defense gets a crack at hitting each other.
“The fourth overall pick in April’s NFL Draft is a punishing runner that is at his best when he can use his physicality to his advantage,Jordan Phillip Jersey,” writes Curtis Crabtree of NFL.com. “However,Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey, so Fournette will have to wait until training camp to showcase that side of his game.”,Trae Waynes Jersey, doing so in OTAs and mini-camp is against the rules
but the addition of Fournette this offseason gives the team a reason for hope. Jacksonville hasn’t had this kind of running back on its roster since Fred Taylor ran through defenses.,The Jaguars have had a weak running game over the past five seasons
” Fournette said Thursday after the team’s final minicamp practice. The comments were written by Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com.,“A lot of those guys are strong and fast
“The first day in pads, I have to really block him now., it’s going to be crazy. Instead of me running towards[defensive end] Calais[Campbell] and stopping
“That’s one of the things that’s in the back of my head. It should be fun going out there,Authentic DeVante Parker Jersey,Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey,Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey, getting better,Laquon Treadwell Jersey,Mackensie Alexander Jersey, getting each other better. I love this team.”,Authentic Trae Waynes Jersey, competing with each other
Fournette’s affinity for the Jaguars is mutual. The Jaguars coaching staff has been pleased with what they have seen so far from the former LSU star.
Fournette ran for 3,830 yards and 40 touchdowns in three seasons at LSU – all in three seasons. If he can run for over 1,000 yards this season,606 yards and won the NFL rushing title., it will mark the first time a Jaguars’ running back has do so since 2011 when Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 1
DiRocco wrote the Jaguars are expected to give Fournette a heavy workload in 2017. That may mean averaging 15-20 touches per game as the Jaguars try to transition to a run-heavy offense. The change in philosophy means quarterback Blake Bortles may not have to sling the football all over the field for this team to win games in 2017.
Fournette will stay in Jacksonville during the five-week layoff.,To continue to prepare for the start of training camp.

David Harris will be one of the newbies in the New England Patriots linebacking core after the team officially inked him to a contract on Thursday night.
Following the report from earlier in the week that the former New York Jets tackle machine was shipping up to Foxboro, reaction came piling in including reaction from one of the better middle linebackers to ever strap on a Patriots helmet.
Tedy Bruschi, now an NFL analyst on ESPN, gave his thoughts on Harris joining the Patriots and how it helps provide depth behind Dont'a Hightower who has also been susceptible to injury over the years.
“I like the move. I know they like the move. Hightower is a player that playing 16 games, on the outside. So to have a veteran presence -- I know[second-year man] Elandon Roberts can play that, you’re not sure if he’s going to get that. He does have some injury situations where he plays 12, he plays 13 games,Authentic DeVante Parker Jersey, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. “And they also like Hightower,Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey,” said Bruschi,Laquon Treadwell Jersey, in particular packages,Mackensie Alexander Jersey, and now Harris comes in to give them a veteran presence.
“He’s still super instinctual. You watch him on film and he barely takes a false step. He knows what he’s doing, he knows the reads; he just does it a little bit slower than he did maybe four years ago.”

Bruschi also likes that Harris hasn't won a championship in his career thus far and should inject some urgency to win into a locker room that is coming off a Super Bowl LI championship.
On Bruschi's point when referencing Hightower, but as he noted Harris joining the linebacking unit also allows the team to use Hightower on the outside more and will help the Patriots pass rush. It also now doesn't put Shea McClellin, depth in terms of him getting hurt helps, Kyle Van Noy and Roberts in position where they are asked to do too much.
In 2016, Harris recorded 95 tackles and since 2009 he's only missed one regular season game.

Our look at the 49ers by position continues on today with a glance at the defensive line, which on paper is shaping up to be one of the strengths of the team. It could also wind up being an area where a tough roster decision or two will need to be made.
Players: Arik Armstead, DeForest Buckner, Ronald Blair, Tank Carradine, Quinton Dial, Chris Jones,Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey, D.J. Jones,Authentic Pat Elflein Jersey, Aaron Lynch,Authentic Jaleel Johnson Jersey, Pita Taumoepenu, Elvis Dumervil,Authentic Ben Gedeon Jersey, Earl Mitchell, Noble Nwachukwu,Latavius Murray Jersey, Solomon Thomas
Safe: Armstead, Buckner, Thomas, Mitchell
Carradine,Competing for a roster spot/depth chart position: Blair, Dial, Dumervil, Lynch, Chris Jones, D.J. Jones
Practice squad candidate: Nwachukwu, Taumoepenu
The 49ers did a fine job upgrading this position in the offseason, bringing in Mitchell, and Dumervil along with late-round picks D.J. Jones and Taumoepenu. Combine that with what was already in place and there's suddenly a good amount of talent and promise to work with up front., Thomas
Heading into camp, it seems like the key question is who will get the bulk of the reps at the LEO spot. The early frontrunner is Armstead,Dalvin Cook Jersey, he's viewed as a player who will need to prove himself come camp.,
Pat Elflein Jersey, but the addition of Dumervil late in offseason workouts will throw a twist into things. Lynch is also in the mix; he made headlines this spring due to being overweight,Jaleel Johnson Jersey,
Ben Gedeon Jersey, but 49ers coaches were complimentary about his efforts to get back to where he needed to be. Still
Elsewhere on the line, DeForest Buckner and Earl Mitchell are certainly locks to make the roster,Authentic Latavius Murray Jersey, who missed OTAs and mandatory minicamp while he was finishing up school at Stanford. Where and how Thomas fits in and how he looks once he's finally out on the field will be one of the storylines to follow come training camp., as is first-round pick Solomon Thomas
there will be some mixing,Past those four, matching and battling as the 49ers determine who will remain on the roster. If Dumervil is past the injury issue that plagued him last season and is back to his old self, as general manager John Lynch has declared, he'll grab one spot. Ronald Blair and Quinton Dial seem to be a good bet to grab spots of their own, and we'll bet on Lynch making the cut as well. From there, and the sixth-round picks D.J. Jones and Taumoepenu. The latter two as well as undrafted rookie Nwachukwu will be practice squad candidates if they are unable to make the roster., the 49ers could face some tough decisions between Tank Carradine, Chris Jones
The Saints have Super Bowl aspirations. To get there, someone will have to step up at a couple of key positions.
“We’ve got some tough circumstances we’re dealing with right now,DeVante Parker Jersey,” Brees told Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Starting left tackle Terron Armstead will miss several months after injuring his shoulder during offseason workouts. Quarterback Drew Brees provided a blunt assessment of the situation on Tuesday.
“Listen,Jordan Phillip Jersey, that’s a big blow. I’m not going to lie,” Brees told
Teammate Zach Strief recently pegged Ryan Ramczyk as the frontrunner to replace Armstead. Brees spoke in more guarded terms.
“Hey, everybody gets thrown into the fire at some point,” Brees said. “I don’t know if that’s going to be Week One with[Ramczyk]. But he has to be ready to play. No question.”
Brees also suggested that former tackle Andrus Peat could slide back outside from the guard position.
The franchise quarterback also lamented the loss of defensive tackle Nick Fairley,Authentic DeVante Parker Jersey,Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey,Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey, who’ll be out for the year after a heart condition prompted the team to place fairly on the non-football illness list.
“This is so unfortunate,Laquon Treadwell Jersey,” Brees said. “I know how hard he worked last year to put himself into a position to be one of the mainstays on our defense. To lose a guy like that on something that’s kind of just of a freak thing,Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey, I know he’s heartbroken. We are as well to not have him.”
Nearly every team must deal with injury issues at some point in the year. The Saints are facing multiple issues already,Mackensie Alexander Jersey, and the hitting hasn’t even begun yet.

“These are players you get to know really well over the years. You care for them and their families. We’re all going to miss them.”
eligible to become a free agent on Saturday, had joined Lundqvist on Broadway during the 2006-07 All-Star break. Stepan,Authentic Gordie Howe jersey, sent to the Coyotes last week for the seventh-overall selection in the draft and Anthony DeAngelo,Girardi, had been part of the squad since the start of 2010-11.
we understand that it is part of the business,” said the King, who is entering his 13th season as a Ranger. “At the same time,adidas Gordie Howe jersey,“That being said,adidas Jimmy Howard jersey, it is exciting to be part of an organization that does everything it can to put the best team possible out on the ice.
“It puts us all on our toes and helps us all push forward to continue to improve as individuals and as a team.”
Lundqvist said the left knee injury he sustained in helping to lead Team Sweden to a gold medal in last month’s World Championship tournament is healing on schedule and will not have any impact on his preparation for the upcoming season.
” said the 35-year-old goaltender, who will have a new backup in the wake of Antti Raanta’s departure to the desert as part of the Stepan deal. “I always take three weeks off after the season,Authentic Jimmy Howard jersey,“It hasn’t changed my offseason plan,adidas Frans Nielsen jersey, start with light workouts and begin skating in late July.
“That will stay the same this year. I will be ready for camp and for the season.”
Now that 97’s got his deal,adidas Frans Nielsen jersey, where does that leave the Oilers with regards to the cap?
very wrong., but they couldn’t be any more wrong. Like betting on the Washington Generals against the Harlem Globetrotters,Connor McDavid signed an excellent deal yesterday. Anyone who disagrees with this is probably a good person, they would be very
long time., mostly in bonuses. It’s completely buyout proof,McDavid’s new deal will kick into effect at the beginning of the 2018-19 season. It brings with it a 12.5MM cap hit every year for eight years, and it’s the first buyout-proof deal that the Oilers have signed that I’ve been simply elated about. Connor McDavid will be an Oiler for a long
Lots of folks in the Twittersphere had McDavid around the 13.25MM mark per season, which would’ve been great as well. Does getting him at 12.5MM a year change much?
IT MIGHT, ACTUALLY
but it might be a bigger help than expected., you’re well aware the cap gets super tight for the Oilers in 2018-19. Even with an incremental increase in the cap ceiling, things are about to get snug in a year. With regards to McDavid’s slamming new deal,Assuming you’ve been watching all along,Authentic Gordie Howe jersey, I’m not going to sit here and suggest that there’s a wide difference between 12.5 and 13.25. It’s 750 thousand
perhaps McDavid’s AAV allows them to push the needle to 9MM a year a bit more easily?, nine,adidas Henrik Zetterberg jersey,adidas Wayne Gretzky jersey, or ten million depending on where you’re looking. If Draisaitl’s camp and Chiarelli were on the same page,The numbers we’re seeing for Leon Draisaitl have gotten up to eight, it’s fair to assume that they’d like to lock a deal down sooner than later. I can’t imagine Chiarelli wanting his number two scorer to carry on through the summer susceptible to an offer sheet. If the Oilers were thinking 8.25MM a year
Leon’s contract is a bit more difficult than McDavid’s. I wholeheartedly believe that Chiarelli wants to lock Draisaitl down for a significant amount of time, but we’re still wondering exactly what Leon can do on his own line away from McDavid. Listening to Chiarelli wax about Ryan Strome getting a look at centre back on July 1st leads me to believe that there’s a significant chance that Draisaitl again will play next to McDavid for what could be the entire year.
For the sake of the discussion, Matthew Benning and Laurent Brossoit. If there’s a cap increase of two million like this past year, Anton Slepyshev, it will give the Oilers roughly 13 million to sign Ryan Strome, Patrick Maroon, I’m going to use “9” as the number that Leon gets long term. Beginning in 2018-19 (when McDavid’s new deal takes effect), Drake Caggiula, Darnell Nurse,adidas Gordie Howe jersey,adidas Jimmy Howard jersey, it’ll put the Oilers at about 15 million to lock down all of their assets.
can 750 thousand swing the needle on Draisaitl? Maybe. It won’t do much for the long term cap issues that will face the team in a year. That’s not to say that it’s McDavid’s fault (the best player in the game should be paid like the best player in the game),Authentic Jimmy Howard jersey,Authentic Henrik Zetterberg jersey,Authentic Frans Nielsen jersey,Authentic Wayne Gretzky jersey,In other words, but Chiarelli will likely need to squeeze the roster once again to make it all work out.
The Seattle Seahawks barely passed the offseason.
At least,Authentic Sammy Watkins Jersey, specifically their Seahawks writer Sheil Kapadia, ESPN, believes that.
(The offseason program has ended for the Seattle Seahawks but the players still have work to do. Make sure you're in the loop as injury updates and player progress continue to flow out of the VMAC. -- take five seconds to Sign up for our Free Seahawks newsletter now!)
Not overly impressed by the Seahawks cautious moves,Authentic Justin Tucker Jersey, which were limited by their cap flexibility,Womens Eric Weddle Jersey, Kadia explained his logic.
The Seahawks' had two main goals this offseason: getting their run game back on track and increasing their depth on defense. The team signed offensive linemen Luke Joeckel and Oday Aboushi while drafting Ethan Pocic in the second round. They also added Eddie Lacy to team up with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise. They spent four of their first five draft picks on defense in addition to signing safety Bradley McDougald and a trio of linebackers. Defensively,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey, the Seahawks should be fine if they can stay healthy, and this is still a Super Bowl-caliber roster. But did they do enough up front to provide an upgrade? Or are they counting too much on second-year players to make the leap? The answer to that question could tell the story of their season.
He's not wrong. The team has put much faith in offensive tackles George Fant and Germain Ifedi making large leaps in their sophomore campaigns. When you think about the fact that Ifedi is switching positions and Fant's playing just his second-year of meaningful football, that's going to be concerning. They're also counting on sophomore C.J. Prosise to stay healthy,Womens Justin Tucker Jersey, after he missed most of 2016.
None of this inspires particular confidence despite the draft and free agent acquisitions.
However,Authentic Eric Weddle Jersey,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, it should be noted the Seahawks attempted splashier signings like guard T.J. Lang.
Still,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey,Womens Sammy Watkins Jersey, the grade is about what you did do not what you almost did and Pete Carroll and company are going to have to prove they won this free agency on the margins in-season.
SPARTA, who said Friday he wouldn’t return to Joe Gibbs Racing next season., Ky. – Team owner Joe Gibbs was tight-lipped Saturday when asked about the status of Matt Kenseth
and I don’t think there’s anything we can say that’s solid or done,“Right now there’s quite a bit up in the air,Womens Josh Doctson Jersey, we’re not in a situation where we can say this is what we’re doing.”,Womens Su'a Cravens Jersey,” Gibbs said before the Cup race at Kentucky Speedway. “At least I guess what I’m saying is we’ll probably come up with something in the near future. We’ll probably come up with something. Right now it’s still for us
Gibbs said,Authentic Nate Sudfeld Jersey,Asked if he could confirm that Kenseth’s assertion that he would be leaving the team, I think right now is kind of a tough time for everybody. We’re kind of working through some stuff.”, “Matt’s statement kind of stands on its own. We love Matt. So
who is on loan to Furniture Row Racing on a one-year deal but seems to be slotted into Kenseth’s No. 20 Toyota for the 2018 season.,The replacement for Kenseth is almost certainly Erik Jones
Kyle Busch intimated that the move to replace Kenseth with Jones was predicated on sponsorship.,In a Friday night interview with SiriusXM NASCAR channel host Claire B. Lang
and Busch said Jones would bring funding to shore up the car’s finances.,Authentic Josh Doctson Jersey,Authentic Su'a Cravens Jersey,Authentic Kendall Fuller Jersey,Kenseth’s car hasn’t been fully funded since losing Dollar General after last season
Gibbs deflected questions about whether Jones was an option.
” he said. “Right now our situation is we need to wind up with exactly what we’re doing and come out and tell everybody as soon as we do.”,Womens Kendall Fuller Jersey,Womens Nate Sudfeld Jersey,“We love Erik; Toyota loves Erik
Gibbs said that having Kenseth return next year is “certainly what we hope. That’s what we’re working toward. … He’s probably in as good a shape as he has been in his life,Authentic Brandon Scherff Jersey,At a sponsorship announcement in late April when Kenseth laughed off rumors he was retiring,Womens Brandon Scherff Jersey, and we continue into the future. That’s our game plan.”, and I know he has a burning desire to keep driving.
Dalvin Cook could very well wind up being the future of the Minnesota Vikings offense and the early reviews are that he could bring something to the table that the team has not had before.
Vikings Update's Tim Yotter broke down what the Florida State running back and 2017 second round pick brings to the table for the team.
he had defenders on their heels., his skill set is along the line of Jamaal Charles or Chris Johnson. The Vikings have never had that type of running back. Peterson had breakaway speed, but more times than not,Cook has rare speed – for the purpose of comparison, his long runs were the result of eight or nine players being in the box and when he hit full speed through a hole
he could push for more playing time than (Latavius) Murray because, but he brings an element to the offense that has been absent in the offenses the Vikings have run. The other negative to consider is that he fumbled too often at Florida State.,Womens Kendall Wright Jersey, while Murray is a dependable north-south runner,Authentic Connor Shaw Jersey,Cook has the ability to go from zero to 60 in an instant and can take a play that looks like there is nothing available and burst into high gear quicker than most running backs. Depending on how quickly he picks up the offense (and picks up blitzers), Cook can take any touch to the house. As with most speed backs, durability has to be a legitimate question because he opens himself up to high-speed collisions
