July 27 (UPI) -- Stephen Ross had some candid remarks at Miami Dolphins training camp regarding the a study which

found CTE in 99 percent of deceased NFL players' brains.

a league to really make sure we're looking at all the different issues, Fla. "We're all concerned about it. There's a

tremendous amount of research that's going into it and things to make it better."

know if I had a son, many rule changes over the last number of years to do that. I think we'll just keep doing that

until we really find a solution."

football players and 21 percent of high school football players., a progressive,The study was published Tuesday in

the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). It found chronic traumatic encephalopathy, degenerative brain

disease

need of improvement.

Authentic Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey, I think it's as popular as it has probably ever been, and I think it'll continue to be that way, everything

is great, and you've got to make them better. I think that's what we're all - in this business - and I think every

owner in the league feels the same way."

For the Jets,Authentic Jack Conklin Jersey, there have been mixed feelings about life without some of their seasoned veterans.

losing multiple veteran teammates such as Nick Mangold,Authentic Kevin Dodd Jersey, Brandon Marshall,Authentic Austin Johnson Jersey,For players such as linebacker Demario Davis, Darrelle Revis and David Harris will not have as much of an impact as some might think. For Davis,Authentic Kevin Byard Jersey, it is all part of the game.

because I’ve played with a lot of guys one year and then not played with them the next year,“No[playing without Harris] is not strange,” Davis said. “There were a lot of guys in this locker room … that were phenomenal players for us that are not here now.”

who had played alongside Mangold since being selected by the Jets in the third round of the 2013 NFL draft,Guard Brian Winters, has felt the veteran absence a little more.

” Winters said when asked if it felt weird not having Mangold on the offensive line with him. “[Mangold] was one of those guys that I came into the business with and kind of leaned on,“Absolutely,[and he was an] Ohio native. So he was one of those guys that I enjoyed to be around.”

Nevertheless,Womens Jack Conklin Jersey,Womens Kevin Dodd Jersey,Womens Austin Johnson Jersey, Winters emphasized the Jets still believe they can be successful with the new unit they have at camp.

but we’re still going to continue to build success around the building,Authentic Derrick Henry Jersey,” Winters said. “We still have a goal,Womens Derrick Henry Jersey,“You lose those names,Womens Kevin Byard Jersey, and that goal is to win.”

If the Jets want to be successful this year without those veterans, the rookies need to step up.

they got to grow up fast,” defensive lineman Steve McLendon said. “We understand that they are rookies,“Anytime you put young guys on the team, but once you step on that field you’re an 11-man New York Jet. … We don’t have time to baby anyone, and[the rookies] know that.”

With the 2017 NFL season quickly approaching, there is not much time for the younger players to get up to speed. The Jets’ first preseason game is scheduled for Aug. 12 against the Titans.

If the Ravens decide to sign Colin Kaepernick,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, it's a decision that might not sit well with their fan base.

According to NFL.com's Mike Silver,Womens Joe Haden Jersey, Ravens fans have spent the past 24 hours letting the team know that they don't want Kaepernick in Baltimore.

The Ravens considered adding Kaepernick to the roster this week after it became clear that Joe Flacco would miss some time during training camp with a sore back. Instead of signing Kaepernick,Authentic Dez Bryant Jersey, the team decided to add arena quarterback David Olson to the roster.

Although the Ravens passed on Kaepernick this time around,Authentic Ezekiel Elliott Jersey, coach John Harbaugh did leave the door open for possibly making a move down the road with Kaepernick.

obviously, but he's not an arm," Harbaugh said of Kaepernick. "He's an accomplished football player,"We're definitely going to get another arm in here, and we always like having good football players."

and it sounds like they don't want to waste Kaepernick's time by bringing him in to be a camp arm for a week. However, the Ravens only expect Flacco to miss about week with his back injury,Womens Andy Dalton Jersey,Womens Jim Brown Jersey, if Flacco's injury turns out to be something more serious and keeps him out for multiple weeks,Authentic Joe Haden Jersey,Authentic Emmitt Smith Jersey,Basically,Womens Emmitt Smith Jersey, it sounds like Harbaugh will consider bringing in Kaepernick.

Kaepernick has only visited one team (the Seahawks),Womens Dez Bryant Jersey,The former 49ers quarterback has been a free agent since March when he opted out of his contract in San Francisco. Since then, which has led many to believe that the quarterback is being blackballed.

the the reaction in Baltimore isn't going to help things. Fans also had a similar reaction in New York. Back in May,If teams are afraid of fan backlash, Giants co-owner John Mara said that fans in New York threatened to boycott his team if they decided to sign Kaepernick.

because, the Ravens are definitely going to need to do something, based on Friday,If Flacco is out for an extended period, backup quarterback Ryan Mallett definitely doesn't seem to be the answer in Baltimore.

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) — If nothing else, Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan is undaunted.

He had to be helped off the field with a torn patellar tendon in his right knee the last time he played. But eight months later, he's practicing on a limited basis as he works his way back from an injury that has ruined careers.

"I feel like I'm right where I need to be, even a little bit more," Trevathan said. "The plan is to keep easing me into things and keep trying to push toward greatness."

Greatness is a word rarely used to describe the Bears.

They're coming off a last-place finish in the NFC North at 3-13 and one of their worst seasons in decades, yet they believe they have the makings of a strong front seven if they stay healthy.

That's a big "if,Authentic Josh Reynolds Jersey," considering Chicago had 19 players finish last season on injured reserve.

That list included quarterback Jay Cutler and star guard Kyle Long. But the defense wasn't spared,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/samson-ebukam-jersey-authentic
]Authentic Samson Ebukam Jersey[/url], either.

Besides Trevathan,
Womens Charles Harris Jersey
, the Bears lost linebacker Lamarr Houston to a torn ACL in his left knee in the second game. Nose tackle Eddie Goldman was limited to six games and also wound up on IR because of an ankle injury.

Other players shuffled in and out of the lineup because of injuries,Womens Raekwon McMillans Jersey, such as outside linebackers Leonard Floyd and Pernell McPhee.

Floyd was slowed by hamstring and calf issues and twice exited games because of concussions, fueling questions about his durability in an otherwise promising rookie season. He also had surgery on both shoulders at Georgia. But after being drafted No. 9 overall in 2016, he had seven sacks and four pass breakups.

McPhee missed the first six games last year following surgery on his left knee and sat out the finale because of a shoulder injury. Once again, he is on the mend.

McPhee showed up to camp with pain in his right knee and had arthroscopic surgery on Friday, meaning he is out indefinitely. That countered somewhat the good news about Trevathan.

"I think the health of our front seven is going to be important," general manager Ryan Pace said. "Eddie Goldman coming back healthy is going to be significant. (Defensive end) Akiem Hicks playing at a high level. Signing (lineman) Jaye Howard in the offseason. The two inside linebackers. We know our depth at outside linebacker. I really feel like that could be a strength of this team. We've just got to keep that group healthy."

A healthy and disruptive front seven would no doubt boost a defense that performed well last season before tailing off at the end. It would also go a long way toward producing turnovers — a big sticking point for Chicago a year ago. The Bears had a league-low 11 takeaways and intercepted just eight passes.

It would also take the load off an offense with a new starting quarterback in Mike Glennon.

"We've got quarterbacks who are going to need some time to adapt to the scheme," linebacker Willie Young said. "So for us to play lights out ball,
Womens Josh Reynolds Jersey
,Womens Samson Ebukam Jersey, it's going to give them that freedom. It's going to give them that room for error. It's going to give them the ability to make those throws into those tight windows without hesitating. Because they've got so much confidence that the defense is going to get them the ball right back. So that's why it's going to be really important that we hunker down and get our job done."

Trevathan is also thinking positive.

He insisted there is "no doubt in my mind" he and Jerrell Freeman can form the NFL's "best tandem" at inside linebacker if he makes it all the way back. Trevathan also knows what it takes to recover from a major injury. He bounced back from a dislocated kneecap in 2014 and subsequent surgery with Denver to start 15 games for the Broncos in the 2015 championship season.

"It's not my first rodeo,Authentic Charles Harris Jersey,Authentic Raekwon McMillan Jersey,Authentic Cordrea Tankersley Jersey," he said. "The great ones come back from injuries,Womens Cordrea Tankersley Jersey, and there's nothing to them."

NOTES: WR Markus Wheaton had his appendix removed Sunday morning after experiencing stomach pain and was expected to spend a night in the hospital. Coach John Fox said appendix did not burst. He said Wheaton started feeling pain around 4 a.m. and had surgery five hours later. ... G Kyle Long (ankle) returned after sitting out Saturday. But OL Taylor Boggs (concussion symptoms) and OL Eric Kush (hamstring) exited practice. RB Benny Cunningham has a sore neck.

Allen Park — Tahir Whitehead has already defied the odds, so being asked to change positions, to clear the way for a rookie,Womens Connor Cook Jersey, it’s just something the Detroit Lions veteran linebacker takes in stride.

Adjust,Womens Mario Edwards Jr Jersey, adapt, keep fighting.

“It’s the National Football League,Authentic Jordan Hicks Jersey, pushing me to get my job.,Womens Isaac Seumalo Jersey, you have to go out and prove yourself every year, so I’m never going to stop viewing myself as such. It’s that fire under me,” Whitehead said. “I’ve always been an underdog, it gives me that motivation that someone is always chasing me

“At the end of the day, I look at the man in the mirror and say, “It’s you against you. Go out there and make things happen.”

$8 million deal last offseason.,A fifth-round pick out of Temple, Whitehead toiled away on special teams his first two seasons, before opportunity finally knocked. Injuries to Kyle Van Noy and Stephen Tulloch paved the way to playing time,Authentic Connor Cook Jersey,Authentic Mario Edwards Jr Jersey, and Whitehead’s success earned him a new two-year

But after the Lions struggled to get the production they needed from the linebacking unit in 2016,Authentic Clive Walford Jersey, the team focused on making upgrades,Womens Clive Walford Jersey, including the selection of Florida’s Jarrad Davis in the first round.

Davis is slated to start at middle linebacker as a rookie,Womens Jordan Hicks Jersey, the spot Whitehead manned last year. He’s been bumped to the outside,Authentic Isaac Seumalo Jersey, where he’s played before and is prepared to play again.

so being able to change positions is not really that big of a deal.”,“You go through an adjustment period, but at the end of the day, I know all the (linebacking positions),” Whitehead said. “I’ve played them all

before injuries sapped his effectiveness and he was released this offseason. ,Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Whitehead’s speed make him a good fit on the weak side. That’s where DeAndre Levy used to roam

not getting the entire defense lined up. ,Whitehead said the only real difference between playing on the weak side compared to the middle is the angle you see the field and having to play off the actions of different teammates. What goes unsaid is he’ll also have less responsibility with Davis taking over the headset and making the defensive calls. That will let Whitehead focus on his job

Whitehead expects the adjustment to be smooth and is counting on taking advantage of a position he feels opponents sometimes ignore.

” Whitehead said. “They don’t always account for the Will linebacker in the NFL. You see the Will run through and make plays from them just not accounting for him.",“It really frees you up

After a two-and-a-half-year hiatus,Authentic Dan Feeney Jersey, Roger Goodell has finally returned to Gillette Stadium.

The NFL commissioner was on hand for the Patriots' preseason opener against the Jaguars on Thursday. According to the Boston Globe,Womens Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey, Goodell randomly decided to "pop" in for the game because he was in the Boston area.

Goodell, who's not exactly Mr. Popular in Boston,Womens Dan Feeney Jersey, sat in a box with Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Before Thursday,Authentic Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey,Authentic Gerald Everett Jersey, Goodell hadn't attended a game at Gillette since January 2015 when Deflategate started following the Patriots' AFC title win over the Colts. Goodell basically became a villain in the Boston area in May 2015 after Tom Brady's four-game suspension was handed out for the first time.

The good news for Goodell is that it looks like he's going to survive his first visit back to Gillette,Womens Gerald Everett Jersey, even though at least one Patriots player thought he wouldn't. Back in February,Authentic Cooper Kupp Jersey, Rob Gronkowski said that Goodell was hated so much in New England that he wouldn't "even be able to land at the airport" if he tried to attend a game.

Goodell is still planning to attend to the first game of the NFL regular season,Womens Cooper Kupp Jersey, which will be played in New England on Sept. 7. It's possible that the commissioner is hoping that his preseason visit to Gillette will take some sting off his visit for the opener.

That's probably not going to happen though. If anything Goodell's probably going to hear a few extra boos when he walks into the stadium on Sept. 7.

The NFL's controversial decision to suspend Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott after a yearlong investigation into domestic violence allegations has spurred debate about whether the punishment is too severe.

But domestic violence experts said the NFL took a necessary and crucial stand Friday.

Richard Gelles, said he believes the league did what Jerry Jones should have done. , a professor of social policy at the University of Pennsylvania who has consulted with the NFL regarding domestic violence sanctions and written several books on the subject

"The message the NFL sent to Jerry Jones is,Authentic Eric Kendricks Jersey, 'You're supposed to take care of your own problems and that if you don't,Authentic Danielle Hunter Jersey, we will,Womens Cyrus Jones Jersey,'" Gelles said. "History doesn't give you any confidence that Dallas will handle these issues when they arise."

No criminal charges have been filed against Elliott. Unlike in a court of law,Womens Jacoby Brissett Jersey, the NFL can make disciplinary decisions based on probable cause rather than proof beyond a reasonable doubt, adding that it needs to be this way,Womens Joe Thuney Jersey, Gelles said, especially when it comes to domestic violence.

Punishment needs to be expected and consistent, he said.

"The point of all of this is if you want to deter behavior that you believe to be unacceptable," Gelles said. "It's less important that it be severe and most important that it be certain. , the punishment has to be certain

"It sends a message that they're not going to tolerate domestic violence, you have to send this message.", and it sends a message to players like Ezekiel Elliott that their careers are on the line. If you want domestic violence to decline

Bianca Jackson, said the NFL's decision to suspend Elliott is an example of a new trend in how domestic violence is treated and discussed in the public arena., senior director of fund and community development for Genesis Women's Shelter

"To me," she said. , it shows us that there is now a social consequence regarding domestic violence. Now there's this public court of opinion that puts on pressure

Domestic violence, often comes with a pattern of abuse and control that escalates. In order to break that pattern for abusers, Jackson said,Womens Eric Kendricks Jersey, "it has to be worth it to stop and it has to be very uncomfortable for them to do it,Womens Danielle Hunter Jersey, Jackson said it seems as though that's exactly what the NFL is doing,Authentic Cyrus Jones Jersey,Authentic Jacoby Brissett Jersey," she said. In Elliott's case,Authentic Joe Thuney Jersey, setting a precedent that it's not worth it.

Dallas City Council member Jennifer Staubach Gates, has long felt the conflict between her love of the team and her work as an advocate for domestic violence victims., the daughter of famed Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach

Gates said Friday that the NFL's recent letter to Elliott, suggests that the league is moving in the right direction when it comes to taking a stand against domestic violence., which explains its investigation and findings

"I know it's a business, and they're in the industry to win the Super Bowl," said Gates, who is chairwoman of Dallas' Domestic Violence Task Force. "But you still have to have standards."

Gates said from the outside looking in, it appears that the NFL's investigation was very fair. "I think the NFL has stood up and said we're going to do the right thing. I would hope the Cowboys will follow."

The criticism that inevitably follows a decision like this is misplaced, Gates said.

"He made a really bad choice. It's not the choice of the NFL. … It was Zeke's choice to engage in that conduct. Let's make the question … 'Why did this person do that?' vs. making excuses for the consequence or questioning the consequence.

"They're regular human beings, and so they should be held to a different standard.", but we lift them up to a different standard. And that's the reality. Kids look up to them

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — New Seahawks kicker Blair Walsh is intent on redeeming himself with the franchise that found

itself the beneficiary of his most dramatic error.

Walsh missed a 27-yard field goal with less than 30 seconds remaining against Seattle in a frigid Wild Card playoff

game with the Minnesota Vikings two seasons ago. Walsh yanked the kick wide left, allowing the Seahawks to survive

for a 10-9 victory. After Walsh's struggles continued into last season, the Vikings cut him loose after nine games.

"It just wasn't fun," Walsh said of his last year in Minnesota. "It wasn't fun trying to work through it and get

better. Unfortunately,Womens Julién

, I didn't get a chance to finish out the year. I thought I would be able to correct it and I

didn't get that chance. But it's all right. I'm happy with the place I'm in and I wouldn't change anything."

Walsh had missed four of his 16 field goal attempts with the Vikings last season and four of 19 extra point tries

before being let go.

coach Pete Carroll said of Walsh. "He has been a tremendous worker for us, really diligent worker. He is a very good

athlete too. You can see he has soccer background in him and all that. He has a big leg though

Walsh was named a first-team All-Pro and made the Pro Bowl in his rookie season with the Vikings in 2012. He

converted 92 percent of his field goal tries and was perfect on extra points. He believes he can recapture that form

with the Seahawks.

"I've been around the league for a while," Womens Tarell Basham Jersey,Walsh said. "I've been producing at a high level. That's why I'm here

right now in this situation. If that wasn't the case, I wouldn't have this opportunity to be the starting kicker of

that I am who they think I am."

Ohio (AP) -- Joel Bitonio's comeback from a major injury has been stalled.,Womens Preston Smith Jersey,BEREA

Cleveland's starting left guard - and one of the Browns best players - could be out for an extended period with an unspecified knee injury.

The team said Bitonio, whose previous two seasons have ended prematurely because of injuries, got hurt during Tuesday's practice.

backup tackle Cam Erving,Also,Authentic Brandon Scherff Jersey, a former starter and first-round pick, injured his calf during the workout and could be out for a few weeks. The Browns did not say which legs the players hurt.

Coach Hue Jackson is hopeful both will be back for the Sept. 10 season opener against Pittsburgh. Bitonio and Erving are officially out of Monday night's game against the New York Giants.

we get them back as soon as we can,''We will see where they are and hopefully,'' Jackson said. ''I know our medical staff, Authentic Preston Smith Jersey,they do everything they can to get our guys back soon. But I don't think it is anything major that is going to keep them out a ton of time. I just think we have to work through some things to make sure we get those guys both healthy.''

Bitonio's season was cut short after 10 games by an ankle injury.,Bitonio played in just five games last season after he suffered a foot injury late in the first half of a loss to New England. He stayed in the game but wound up having ligament surgery. A year earlier

Jackson was asked if he's concerned by Bitonio's rash of injuries.

''Trust me,Womens Kendall Fuller Jersey, this is not Joel doing this,Womens Nate Sudfeld Jersey, and so hopefully we will get him back. I know we will get him back. I am very comfortable and confident that he will be back and will be back soon - sooner rather than later - and be ready to play. He is very competitive. He wants to be out here right now. Again,Womens Brandon Scherff Jersey,Womens Matt Jones Jersey,'' he said. ''Things happen, we will get through this. It is nothing major. We are going to be fine.''

$47.5 million contract in March.,Bitonio's injuries didn't stop the Browns from signing him to a five-year

Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas said having him back would bolster Cleveland's offensive line.,Before the team revealed Bitonio's latest injury

''Joel is, in my opinion,'' Thomas said. ''Emotionally he brings an energy and enthusiasm on the offense that can kind of help lift all the boats on the offense. He's like the tide. When he comes in, one of the best guards in the NFL and having him out there is a huge boost for us in the run game and the pass game, everyone just gets lifted.''

John Greco, who made 10 starts last season at right guard and two at center,Authentic Kendall Fuller Jersey, took Bitonio's spot on Wednesday.

Erving is competing with Shon Coleman for the starting job at right tackle. He filled in for Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas in the exhibition opener and was penalized for a false start and hold on Cleveland's opening possession.

Jackson gave a lukewarm assessment of Erving's camp so far.

''He has shown some good things. He has shown some inconsistency,Authentic Nate Sudfeld Jersey, too,Authentic Matt Jones Jersey,'' Jackson said. ''He needs to continue to get better.''

"The message the NFL sent to Jerry Jones is, 'You're supposed to take care of your own problems and that if you don't, we will,'" Gelles said. "History doesn't give you any confidence that Dallas will handle these issues when they arise."

No criminal charges have been filed against Elliott. Unlike in a court of law, the NFL can make disciplinary decisions based on probable cause rather than proof beyond a reasonable doubt, adding that it needs to be this way, Gelles said,Authentic James White Jersey, especially when it comes to domestic violence.

"To me," she said. , it shows us that there is now a social consequence regarding domestic violence. Now there's this public court of opinion that puts on pressure

Jackson said,Domestic violence, often comes with a pattern of abuse and control that escalates. In order to break that pattern for abusers, "it has to be worth it to stop and it has to be very uncomfortable for them to do it," she said. In Elliott's case, Jackson said it seems as though that's exactly what the NFL is doing, setting a precedent that it's not worth it.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) -- After not having much to cheer about in their preseason opener,Authentic Ziggy Ansah Jersey, the Los Angeles Chargers defense was back at full volume Wednesday.

Cornerback Trevor Williams sparked cheers from his fellow defensive backs after breaking up a long pass to wide receiver Tyrell Williams.

A diving interception along the sideline by veteran safety Dwight Lowery resulted in more celebrations. And then there was the constant chirping of safety Tre Boston, not associated with any one particular play.

''Tre just likes to talk in general. Which is OK,Authentic Matthew Stafford Jersey,'' coach Anthony Lynn said. ''The guys were banging a little bit. I thought it was a good practice.''

Getting the noise level back up was a welcome sign for defensive coordinator Gus Bradley,Womens Marvin Jones Jr Jersey, who critiqued the low energy level on his side of the ball in a 48-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

It was especially evident the further the Chargers went down their depth chart,Womens Darius Slay Jr Jersey, as Seahawks backup Trevone Boykin and No. 3 quarterback Austin Davis combined to go 19 of 24 for 297 yards and one touchdown.

The Chargers gave up six pass plays of more than 20 yards,Womens Taylor Decker Jersey, and perhaps the lone highlight for the secondary was rookie cornerback Desmond King's interception.

''It showed multiple times, not a lot of enthusiasm, plays being made,'' Bradley said.

''But, again, I think it's just getting out there for the first time,Womens Matthew Stafford Jersey, and I think when you have some success and you have some good things happen, playing with guys that maybe haven't played with and getting a feel for that. It's an energetic group, that helps, too.''

Getting cornerback Jason Verrett back on the field would definitely qualify. Verrett could see his first game action this week since tearing the ACL in his left knee last October,Womens Ziggy Ansah Jersey,with Bradley saying a decision would be made later this week on his availability.

Before that decision comes,Authentic Marvin Jones Jr Jersey, the Chargers will host the New Orleans Saints for two days of joint practices before they play Sunday.

The defense already has to deal with Philip Rivers in practice and saw Russell Wilson for one series in the Chargers' first game at StubHub Center.

Bradley views the challenge of Saints star Drew Brees as a welcome one that will help the defense continue to adjust to a new 4-3 alignment.

''When you talk about trying to mature as a defense - you're going against Russell and Drew and Philip every day - I mean,Authentic Darius Slay Jr Jersey, it's really a great environment for that,Authentic Taylor Decker Jersey,'' Bradley said.

Bradley's main focus is at middle linebacker after starter Denzel Perryman suffered an ankle injury against Seattle that required surgery. With Perryman expected to miss at least two months, that leaves Nick Dzubnar and Korey Toomer competing to replace him.

The top priority for a middle linebacker is relaying the defensive play call and making sure everyone is lined up in the right spot, Bradley said.

That might give Dzubnar, a slight edge at the moment. Bradley described Dzubnar as a strong leader who is rarely out of position, entering his third season out of Cal Poly, while Toomer is the better athlete.

''It's just the pre-snap process that we're working on with him,'' Bradley said. ''Both of them have some things that we need to work on, but they have some traits that we're excited about.''

Bradley didn't rule out having Dzubnar and Toomer split time depending on situations or personnel packages.

But vocal leadership will be key for whoever steps in to replace Perryman.

''We have to look at that and just see who steps up to that calling because you're facing the huddle and you got Brandon Mebane and Joey Bosa and Jahleel (Addae) and Jason Verrett,'' Bradley said.

''And we're looking for a guy to take charge, so that's really been the emphasis of that position now.''

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Kicker Cody Parkey thought he had shown the Browns he could handle anything during a topsy-turvy 2016 season.

lows, makes and misses,Through the highs,Authentic Charles Harris Jersey, he was steady.

And then draft day arrived.

Parkey, who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie for Philadelphia in 2014 only to be waived two years later,Authentic Raekwon McMillan Jersey,After missing three field goals in his debut last season,Womens Cordrea Tankersley Jersey, rebounded and converted 20 of 22 attempts. His personal comeback was lost in the mess of the Browns' horrendous 1-15 season.

Parkey was confident the Browns believed in him,When it ended,Authentic Pat Elflein Jersey, and the 27-year-old assumed his job was secure - at least for another season.

the most prolific kicker in college history,That all changed when the team selected Arizona State All-American Zane Gonzalez, in the seventh round of this year's NFL draft.

'' Parkey said Monday. ''But I was reassured that it was going to be an open competition. And it just kind of makes me want to work harder,''I was kind of taken aback, just to prove people wrong about me.''

Quarterback isn't the only tight competition in Browns camp.

The kicking battle between Parkey and Gonzalez has evolved into one of the tightest this summer,Womens Pat Elflein Jersey, with each squib and shank analyzed and graded.

Parkey has been more consistent,Authentic Cordrea Tankersley Jersey, but coach Hue Jackson indicated that the starting job remains up for grabs.

''I think it is kind of close,'' he said. ''I am not going to say which way it is.''

the first kicker drafted by the Browns since 1989,Parkey said Gonzalez, has made him better.

''Competition breeds success,'' he said. ''But at the end of the day I'm competing against myself. I'm not trying to beat Zane that day. I'm trying to beat myself.''

A year ago,Womens Charles Harris Jersey, Parkey wasn't even on the Browns' radar.

He was with the Eagles last summer, fighting for a job after a serious groin injury prematurely ended his 2015 season. Parkey was released in September and was looking for a tryout when Browns called him with an emergency.

Kicker Patrick Murray had sustained a season-ending knee injury in practice, and the Browns needed him for their Sept. 25 game in Miami.

only worked with holder Britton Colquitt and Charley Hughlett in warmups and proceeded to miss three field goals,Parkey rushed to Florida,Womens Raekwon McMillans Jersey, including a potential game-winner from 46 yards at the end of regulation.

and it would have been easy for them to move on. Instead,Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey,The Browns lost in overtime,Womens Dalvin Cook Jersey, they gave Parkey another chance.

which was honestly awesome,''They gave me another game,'' he said. ''They believed in me. I didn't have a good first game. There is no way to sugarcoat that. But I think the definition of a good kicker is how you respond because you are going to miss a kick here and there.''

Parkey was hard on himself, but was finally able to shake the Miami meltdown.

'' he said. ''You're one of 32 guys in the world that's able to do this. I've been to a Pro Bowl. I've done it all,''You just gotta go out there and hit your ball and trust that you're here for a reason, so I just have to remind myself: '''I'm good enough to be in this league.'''

Gonzalez feels the same way. The career FBS leader with 96 field goals and 494 points, he was honored as the Lou Groza Award winner as the nation's top kicker last year.

He didn't understand the award's significance until he arrived at team headquarters, located at 76 Lou Groza Blvd. and named for the Browns Hall of Famer.

''It's a pretty special feeling,'' Gonzalez said. ''I didn't really realize it was that big a deal until I got here the first time and I saw Lou Groza right on the front door. It's just awesome to look back and know that I did win that award and now I'm here.''

an interception and massive hit on WR Rannell Hall. Jackson said Peppers has steadily improved during camp and displayed the same versatility he showed at Michigan. ''He's shown you he can play everywhere,'' Jackson said. ... Jackson respects the rights of players who have protested during the national anthem, and he hopes his team will continue to honor the flag. ''I would hope that we don't have those issues,NOTES: Rookie safety Jabrill Peppers had a strong practice with a few pass breakups,'' he said. ''I understand there is a lot going on in the world. I like to just keep it here. Hopefully, that won't happen.''

OXNARD,Womens Mike Tolbert Jersey, CALIF.

After 13 months,
Womens Donald Trump Jersey
, a final decision from the NFL regarding its investigation of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will be rendered sooner than later.

It could happen as early as Friday ,Authentic Justin Hardy Jersey,.

And while remains speculation outside the organization that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will give Elliott a short suspension under the personal conduct policy in regards to a domestic violence allegation from a former girlfriend as well as a build up of conduct concerns,Authentic Donald Trump Jersey, the Cowboys firmly believe the 2016 NFL leading rusher will escape any discipline.

Owner Jerry Jones has said repeatedly that the NFL has no case and Elliott will not be suspended.

His players believe the same and have given no consideration to playing any games without Elliott in 2017.

“He is going to be there,Womens Deatrich Wise Jr. Jersey,” receiver Dez Bryant said. “I know that. We are not even thinking about that. I haven’t even thought about that.”

Tight end Jason Witten allowed that the team would miss Elliott if he was suspended for any games because the running game is the strength of the team and he is the best in the league.

” Witten said of the investigation. “We look forward to him participating,Womens Karlos Dansby Jersey,“We are confident it’s going to work out, being out there playing and continuing to grow as a player on and off the field. We are fairly confident it’s going to be good.”

22, was initially investigated by the NFL for domestic violence allegations made against him by an ex girlfriend in July 2016. The Columbus,Elliott,Authentic Marshon Lattimore Jersey, Ohio city prosecutor’s office declined to pursue charges in early September because of inconsistent information from the victim.

however,Womens Marshon Lattimore Jersey,The league,Womens Justin Hardy Jersey, does not need a legal charge in order to hand Elliott a suspension under its personal conduct policy.

Along with the domestic violence allegations,Authentic Mike Tolbert Jersey, Elliott has made headlines for the wrong reasons this offseason too. He exposed a woman’s breast during a St. Patrick’s Day parade and allegedly got into a bar altercation days before the Cowboys left for training camp.

FRISCO -- Joe Looney walked onto the field for Cowboys practice Wednesday wearing his own No. 73 jersey. And it was news.

"Can't I just be me today?" he quipped.

Looney fooled fans into thinking he was the star running back,The reserve offensive lineman hadn't yet been himself, at a Frisco training camp practice. He taped a No. 4 to his jersey Monday acting like quarterback Dak Prescott as he took the field. Looney then wore Ezekiel Elliott's practice jersey - a tight fit for the 6-3, in a sense, despite standing three inches taller and nearly 90 pounds heavier., 315-pound center - as he emerged in front of a wall of linemen Tuesday. Miming Elliott's "feed me" gesture

"That was probably the funniest part, very different body types."," center Travis Frederick said of the successful bluff. "They're very

In what way?

" Frederick replied diplomatically.,"Joe has a more typical offensive lineman build

bumping the team's preseason to seven weeks,After more than a month of training camp,Womens Hroniss Grasu Jersey, and five games instead of the typical four.,Womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, several players noted Wednesday how long the preseason's taking. The Cowboys opened a week early to play in the Hall of Fame game

and since Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones delivered the State of the Cowboys address the following day.,Womens Adam Shaheen Jersey,More than a month has passed since the team deplaned in Oxnard

two preseason games remain.,Womens Tarik Cohen Jersey,Still

"It can get a little grindy when you're working so hard, and you talk about the amount of time we're putting in away from our families. He sees that and recognizes that and just tries to make everyone more excited about being here."," Frederick said. "Our job can sometimes be long and hard

Looney, said the stunt goes beyond lightening up one practice., who joined the Cowboys in 2016 after three seasons with the 49ers and a fourth with the Titans

winning Super Bowls is an amazing feat. But at the end of the day,"In this profession, it's stuff like that we're going to remember, these are the stories you're going to be telling your friends."," he said. "You know

His teammates agreed," a good reminder the game's supposed to be fun. Marinelli stopped just short of scheming against a 315-pound fullback.,Authentic Hroniss Grasu Jersey, as did coordinators Scott Linehan and Rod Marinelli. Linehan said the prank was "clever" and "unique

" he said. "That's a big man coming downhill with that offensive line.",Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,"Jumbo Joe? That's a big man coming through there

The only person who didn't offer a positive review: head coach Jason Garrett.

"I told him if you come out like that,Authentic Adam Shaheen Jersey," Garrett said. "He thinks the impersonation is better than it actually is.",Authentic Tarik Cohen Jersey,you'd better practice

from his walk out onto the field as #73 at practice's start to playing around with his son and daughter on the field when practice ended.,Womens Eddie Jackson Jersey,Looney returned to playing himself Wednesday

Will another lineman step up for the joke next?

Sometimes there are storylines in the NFL that are just too hard to believe. For instance,Womens David Johnson Jersey, the Jaguars felt comfortable rolling into the 2017 season with just Blake Bortles and Chad Henne on the roster. The assumption they would be fine at quarterback is coming back to bite them thanks to Bortles' bad play, and now it looks like Henne could begin the regular season as the starter.

especially with limited action for primary players in Week 4 games.,Authentic David Johnson Jersey,This belief is largely based on the Jaguars' decision to start Henne in the Week 3 preseason game. It is custom in the NFL for the Week 3 starter to begin the regular season as the starter

Bortles was an outright disaster in Week 2,Authentic Patrick Peterson Jersey, looking like a quarterback who was too far deep into his own head to make athletic, instinctual decisions.

Now, there is a caveat here, as John Oesher of Jaguars.com reports the two quarterbacks will each get reps with the first-team offense and will be "splitting repetitions evenly."

the Jaguars would do just about anything you ask them to in order for Bortles to play well against the Panthers in Jacksonville during Week 3 and come away giving the team enough confidence to name him the starter in Week 1 of the regular season. ,Authentic T. J. Logan Jersey,In other words

the Bortles/Henne situation was bad enough this offseason that it hampered Jacksonville's ability to conduct a thorough coaching search. ,Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey,Good luck with that. As CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora noted on Wednesday night

Bortles was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and the current front office,Womens Larry Fitzgerald Jersey, was an abject disaster. Bortles' mechanics fell apart,Womens Patrick Peterson Jersey, particularly Dave Caldwell, is significantly invested in his success. His rookie season was not great, however, but 2015 showed a lot of promise for Bortles becoming a franchise quarterback. Last year, and the Jaguars tumbled to another losing season.

Instead of pursuing other options in free agency or the draft -- according to reports, new football czar Tom Coughlin was a big fan of Deshaun Watson, who was available to the Jaguars at No. 4 overall -- Jacksonville decided to stand pat with Bortles and Henne as his backup.

They painted themselves into a corner and now they're trying to jump out of it. The natural inclination is to say this will get messier before it gets better,Womens T. J. Logan Jersey,Womens Pat Tillman Jersey, but Henne is just a flat-out upgrade over Bortles at this point. If you bet against the Jaguars in Week 1 already,Authentic Larry Fitzgerald Jersey, you should be getting nervous.

By not winning the starting quarterback job in Denver as a rookie, Paxton Lynch has made it harder for himself to win the starting quarterback job this year. And by not winning the job this year, Lynch has made it harder for himself to win the starting quarterback job next year.

and he becomes better suited to thrive. As Lynch watches,As Trevor Siemian gets more experience, the game gets slower for him, whatever it may be. It’s a chicken-and-egg proposition that at some point needs to result in Lynch getting reps, he doesn’t get the reps — and as a result it will take him even longer to reach the limit of his potential, or he’ll never becomes what he could be.

the Broncos helping Lynch reach his potential took a back seat to putting the best player on the field right now.,For now

“It’s strictly based on performance not potential,” coach Vance Joseph said on Wednesday’s PFT Live. “And we know that Paxton’s a rare talent. In my opinion, his future’s still bright. He’s a second-year guy and he needs more time. That’s the bottom line. He worked really hard in this competition. He was here early and left late. I was proud of Paxton of how he operated during the competition.

be ready to go.’ I believe in Paxton Lynch,Womens Justin Tucker Jersey,“It does not mean that we missed on Paxton because he’s not ready right now. I mean he’s going to have a chance to play in the near future and when he does play I told him, ‘When your chance comes again man,Authentic Ronnie Stanley Jersey, Trevor won the job. It wasn’t a failure on Paxton’s part,Womens Kamalei Correa Jersey, our team believes in Paxton Lynch. I mean he just needs more time. It’s not like he lost a job. In my opinion, it was more of a win on Trevor’s part in my opinion watching both guys. I would feel very comfortable if we had to play with Paxton for a game or two.”

how permanent is any decision in pro football? In the NFL,That may be the only chance Lynch has to get playing time this year, given that Joseph says the decision is permanent. Of course, unequivocally, the team unconditionally, and unquestionable supports a guy until the exact moment that it doesn’t.

Joseph wants to give Siemian full support as he embarks on his second season as the starter. But if he doesn’t perform,Womens Eric Weddle Jersey, and if they continue to feel the way they do about Lynch, the Broncos surely would make a change.

One clear factor in choosing performance over potential is the fact that the Broncos otherwise have a contending team. But Joseph says that, even if they didn’t,Authentic Justin Tucker Jersey, he would have gone with Siemian.

because it’s a bottom-line business,Authentic Eric Weddle Jersey,“I think you should always go performance first,Womens Ronnie Stanley Jersey,” Joseph said. “It’s a win-or-lose business. I think every coach wants to win. So if you’re not going performance first,[url=http://www.ravensfootballauthentic.com/kamalei-correa-jersey-authentic ]Authentic Kamalei Correa Jersey[/url], I think you’re failing in the building and everyone on your football team. In my opinion you have to go performance first and go potential second.”

an adherence to performance first gives Siemian the first crack at the job. And if he runs with it,For now,Womens Bronson Kaufusi Jersey, an interesting decision will be looming in 2018,Authentic Bronson Kaufusi Jersey, with Siemian entering the final year of his contract and Lynch entering his third season.

LAKE FOREST,Authentic Dan Feeney Jersey, Ill. - Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky received snaps with the Chicago Bears' first team on Wednesday and head coach John Fox said the second pick of the 2017 draft will take snaps with the first team in the second half against Tennessee in Sunday's third preseason game.

not just the quarterback position,Womens Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey,"Just to get a true evaluation; that's what we're trying to do and trying to do it at all positions,Womens Dan Fouts Jersey," Fox said. "That'd be the biggest reason."

the Bears have usually played the starter for a series or two in the third quarter of preseason game No. 3,Womens Philip Rivers Jersey,Starter Mike Glennon will play the first half against Tennessee. In the past,Womens Melvin Gordon Jersey, the dress rehearsal for the regular season.

" Trubisky said. "I think I've progressed faster than they expected I would,"I would say I've shown them what I can do, but I've still got a long ways to go and I know that. "

Mark Sanchez remains the backup to Glennon on the depth chart.

Mark Sanchez is still the backup but we've seen nine (NFL) years of Mark," Fox said. "We've not been able to see that with Mitch,"Right now, and he needs that experience.

we've kind of felt this all along,"And so, and we won't do it in the fourth game because our starters don't play much - if at all - in that game."

On draft day after Trubisky's selection,Womens Dan Feeney Jersey, Glennon faced a familiar situation. He had been the starter in Tampa until Jameis Winston was drafted. Then the Bears signed him in free agency and a month and a half later he had a highly touted rookie challenger.

" Glennon said. "Again,Authentic Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey, it's situations that I've been through before that I handled myself well in the past,Authentic Philip Rivers Jersey,"Deja vu, and I'll continue to do that in this situation."

In two preseason games, Trubisky is 24 of 33 for 226 yards and two touchdowns with a passer rating of 111.4. Glennon has two interceptions and a touchdown pass to go with 109 yards on 15-for-26 passing.

"It was clear to me that nothing has changed as far as the depth chart," Glennon said. "Mitch is getting one rep (series) with the starters."

The Bears also announced tackle Charles Leno Jr. received a four-year contract extension. Leno Jr. Leno was a seventh-round pick in 2014 and became a starter in 2015.

"I never was handed anything in life," Leno said. "I worked for everything I got. And have now and I'm going to continue to work. Never going to stop."

Leno came into the league in a humble manner.,Authentic Melvin Gordon Jersey, He was sleeping on guard Kyle Long's floor.

seventh-round draft pick - not even knowing if I'm going to make the roster,Authentic Dan Fouts Jersey, sleeping on an inflatable mattress that I bought from Wal-Mart,"I was literally at Kyle Long's place as a rookie," Leno said. "And now look where I'm at.

"Maybe I'll move next to him or something like that. Who knows?"
