Wholesale Jerseys Not exactly high-level drama here, unless you are Da Rel Scott and Andre Brown competing for the last spot behind Ahmad Bradshaw, rookie David Wilson and D.J. Ware although if both Scott and Brown were spectacular this summer (they weren t), Ware might have been expendable. Scott possesses the dimension of speed and some special teams moxie, which likely gives him the edge on the more workmanlike Brown.Linebacker
When you look back at how Lacy, the offensive player of that game, rumbled for 140 rushing yards with his NFL-caliber Crimson Tide linemen having their way with the Fighting Irish's vaunted front seven, it offered strong evidence to bring down Te'oâ€™s NFL draft stock at inside linebacker.
Wholesale Jerseys On the spate of off-season arrests: "You can't label us by a few young guys getting in trouble. You can't put that on the other 53 guys on the roster. That makes no sense. Obviously, they are part of the team, but I don't think it's correct to put that on the other 53 guys who are on the roster."
Â Pro Football Focus: Top 50 FAs Instead of committing significant money to Keller, the Jets' plan is to start holdover Jeff Cumberland, who caught a career-high 29 passes last season. The Dolphins needed a tight end to replace Anthony Fasano, who signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.Keller was rebuffed last offseason when he approached the Jets about a long-term extension. There were some rumblings about the franchise tag ($6.06 million), but that never materialized. In fact, there had been little contact between the two sides in recent weeks, a source said.A first-round pick in 2008, Keller was on the ascent until last season, when he missed eight games due to hamstring and ankle injuries, the first time in his career he missed a game.Keller finished with career lows for catches (28), receiving yards (317) and touchdowns (two), lousy timing in a contract year. His career yardage total is 2,876, fourth in Jets history among tight ends.The Jets added another potential starter on offense, signing former Pittsburgh Steelers guard Willie Colon to a one-year, $1.2 million contract, a source said. Brandon Moore and Matt Slauson, last year's starting guards, are free agents, so the Jets were in the market for a low-cost insurance policylon, released by the Steelers earlier this week, switched to left guard in 2012 after playing right tackle. He played well, but he missed five games late in the year due to a knee injury. Injures have tormented him in recent years. He played only one game in 2010 and 2011, missing the entire '10 season with a torn Achilles' tendon. It will be a homecoming for Colon, who grew up in the Bronx and attended Hofstra.The Jets also agreed to a one-year deal with former San Diego Chargers defensive tackle Antonio Garay on Friday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.Garay, 33, had 16 tackles and one sack in eight games with the Chargers last season.Information from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter was used in this report.
If this is the end of Randy Moss' career -- and it may very well be as the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver prepares to become an unrestricted free agent -- it's time to start wondering about his legacy. The Hall of Fame will be a certainty. The debate about whether he will be selected on his first ballot will be riveting. But what also shouldn't be forgotten is how much disappointment Moss created during his playing days. No player with his talent in NFL history ever left us wanting more.It's hard to know whether Moss will retire for good this offseason because a CBSSportsm report said he still wants to play for a contender. What is clear is the 49ers have no interest in keeping him on their roster. The 36-year-old Moss tweeted farewell to his team over the weekend, saying he wished "we could've finished the job." It was an ironic choice of words because the same could be said about Moss' career.There has never been a more gifted wide receiver in league history than Moss. He has size, speed, leaping ability and a killer instinct when he has been properly focused. At his best, Moss should've been the greatest receiver to ever catch passes in the NFL. Even he considered himself to be just that when the 49ers were preparing to play Baltimore in the days leading up to Super Bowl XLVII.] EnlargeRalph Freso/Getty ImagesRandy Moss had 28 catches and three TDs in 2012 with the Niners.As baffling as it is to take issue with a six-time Pro Bowler whose career has included 982 receptions, 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns, that's exactly what's happening here. Moss should've been in position to challenge every major receiving record Jerry Rice owned. Moss should've dominated the game for his entire career instead of having long lapses that left even his biggest fans shaking their heads. He also could've been more clutch, which is a part of his game that often goes unnoticed.

The year s most-watched sporting event, interrupted by a 35-minute delay in the third quarter, may forever be known as the #Blackout Bowl. The bizarre interlude seemed to energize the San Francisco 49ers and the Twitterverse, which until then had been complaining about the one-sided game.
Nike NFL Jerseys There has been a lot of talk about moving last year's first-round pick, Shea McClellin, from defensive end to linebacker. Maybe that would go a long way toward explaining the decision on Urlacher and even Roach. But if that is the solution it really only brings up more difficult questions.
Kasay went to New Orleans for one year after the Panthers fired him, kicking for the rival Saints. But when the Saints regular kicker got healthy they in turn released Kasay prior to the 2012 season. Although he had one other undisclosed opportunity, he did not kick in the NFL last year.
