Out of all the high-profile franchise tag cases this spring, the least contentious seems to be between Super Bowl MVP Von Miller Jerseys and the Denver Broncos — and that is just the way Miller likes it.

“My teammates know what type of teammate I am,” he told the Denver Post on Wednesday after providing eyeglasses for nearly 300 local kids as part of his Von’s Vision foundation. “They know what type of guy I am. It’s just the business part of it. There’s really no hard feelings or anything like that. (The Broncos) know what type of guy I am. I’m expecting a deal any day. That’s just the type of mindset I have.”

The last part of that quote — I expect a deal any day — likely says more about Miller than it does the state of negotiations. Denver has a massively important first-round draft pick to make on Thursday and Miller has always been relentlessly positive.

Still, Miller knows that the Broncos can and will break the bank for him. If the team hopes to return to the Super Bowl, they’ll do it on the shoulders of a vicious pass rush like they did in 2015. Neither Mark Sanchez Jerseys or Trevor Siemian (or Sam Bradford or Brian Hoyer Jerseys or Ryan Fitzpatrick Jerseys or Paxton Lynch or Mike Glennon or Colin Kaepernick Jerseys) would be good enough to transform the inherent makeup of this team, which relies on ball control, a strong run game and bootleg option and a stronger defense.

While he waits, Miller seems content trying to win Dancing With The Stars while providing a very nice service for local children along the way. The non-stop media tour has been a welcome distraction of sorts as the July 15 negotiation window slowly creeps in.

“There’s really not anything negative about it,” Miller said. “Of course I want to be there with my guys. Just taking it one day at a time. I’m just working out, dancing, trying to do the best I can with that.”

Martz upset Owens jumped Bruce, Holt on HOF ballot

blackhawks jersey cheap

Former Rams coach Mike Martz is baffled that Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt are not among the 15 modern-era finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Martz expressed his frustration over Marvin Harrison and Terrell Owens “leapfrogging” Bruce and Holt into the finals in Owens’ first blackhawks jersey cheap year of eligibility.

“‘Surprised’ isn’t the word,” Martz said per the St. Louis Dispatch. “You can’t print how I felt when T.O. leapfrogged those two. That’s just plain out-and-out ridiculous.”

Martz said it was Owens’ persona that put him into Hall of Fame contention.

“Had they promoted themselves, which was contrary to everything we were about, they’d probably get in without an issue. That’s just not who we were.

“If they big-timed it and did all that dumb stuff, they’d probably get in earlier. I think they’ll eventually get in. I don’t think that’s an issue, but it’s tragic that people wholesale nfl jerseys think of them like that. If Marvin Harrison gets in, how could they not get in?”

Not everyone shares Martz’s sentiments. Andy Reid, Owens’ former coach with the Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys, said the wide receiver possesses the chops to be a Hall of Famer.

“As far as talent and production goes, T.O is absolutely a Hall of Famer,” Reid said this week per the Philadelphia Daily News.

Reid coached Owens for two seasons in Philadelphia. Owens helped lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl appearance during the 2004 season, but was also responsible for their tumultuous 2005 outing due to a falling out with quarterback Donovan McNabb (among other incidents).

“There was that one off-the-field issue with him, but everything else, he was a pleasure to coach,” Reid added. “The son of a gun would do anything cheap jerseys you asked him to do and he’d do it a hundred miles an hour, which not every player will do.”

Owens is second in career receiving yards (15,934), third in receiving touchdowns (153) and sixth in receptions (1,078).

The 2016 Hall of Fame’s Class will be announced during “NFL Honors” on the eve of the Super Bowl 50.

Lions GM: Drafting QB every year is ‘good football business’

cheap jerseys direct

For NFL teams, finding a starting quarterback is vital for success. Finding a quality backup is necessary insurance. And drafting quarterbacks with upside is just smart business.

With a market shortage on quality quarterbacks, landing a player with potential can lead to future success or aid in stockpiling draft picks. The Eagles under Andy Reid were the prime wholesale jerseys example of building up backup quarterbacks then swapping unproven talent for draft picks — i.e. Kevin Kolb.

This offseason, the hot backup name is Mike Glennon, who will wither away behind Jameis Winston if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers don’t cheap nfl jerseys swing a trade. Glennon has starting experience and an NFL arm. There are questions about his ability to be an everyday starter, but in a QB-needy league, a player like Glennon could bring back a solid haul for Tampa.

The New England Patriots are another example of franchise not afraid of adding quarterbacks, despite Tom Brady Jerseys’s presence. They did it with Matt Cassel Jerseys. Ryan Mallett Jerseys always generated buzz (even if it lacked substance). Next offseason Jimmy Garoppolo Jerseys will be the hot name on the trade market along with Bengals backup AJ McCarron — both entering the final year of their rookie deals.

Coming from New England, Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn knows taking swings at quarterbacks in the draft is a calculated risk every good organization should make, even if that swing misses.

“I think it’s really good football business to acquire a young quarterback every year or every other year,” Quinn said, via the Detroit Free Press. “There’s such a value in the position and nowadays in college football there’s a lot of spread offenses, which means it’s a lot different than pro football. So it takes these young quarterbacks time to develop. So if you can add a young quarterback every year or every other year to your roster, it’s good football business in my mind. So you have time to develop them, either on the practice squad or as a backup, before eventually them having to play in a game.”

The Lions haven’t drafted a quarterback since taking Matthew Stafford Jerseys No. 1 overall in 2009. With no developmental quarterback on the roster, expect that to change in Quinn’s first season in Detroit.

The Patriots didn’t fear using a second-round pick in 2014 on a player who might not play a significant snap in his entire tenure with the team. It’s easier to do while shining multiple Lombardi Trophies, to be sure, but it’s also good sense. It will be blatantly clear when we hear next offseason teams are considering sending at first-round pick for Garoppolo.

Rob Gronkowski: Low hits are part of the game

New England Patriots Jerseys fans hold their breath every time a defender tackles Rob Gronkowski Jerseys low.

Gronk issued a playful retort earlier in the week, but Thursday brushed aside any notion that he’s worried about the Broncos targeting his knees.

“It’s part of the game. I’ve been seeing it all year,” Gronkowski said of low hits, via the team’s official website. “I’ve been seeing it my whole career. I’ve just got to get low, get my shoulder down, protect the ball, just protect myself in any way when I see a lot of guys coming or when I know there’s not a chance to make that many yards, possibly just go down on that play, but if you can make a play then try and make a play, get more yards, but at the same time I’ve just got to watch it wholesale jerseys, get your pads down. It’s football, so you’ve got to be ready for contact at all times.”

In the Pats’ Week 12 loss to the Broncos, Gronkowski exited in the fourth quarter with a knee injury after his leg whipped back on a low hit by a defender. The injury caused him to miss the cheap nfl jerseys following contest and influenced his play down the stretch. Gronk was officially listed as limited in Thursday’s practice with knee/back injuries.

With the NFL placing emphasis on defenders not hitting at the head/neck level, many players, especially smaller defensive backs, have gone low to attempt to bring down behemoths — that’s not to cheap jersey boy tickets suggest taking out the knees is a new philosophy, it’s as old as football.

Gronk added that he plans on dishing out as much punishment as he receives.

“Everyone wants to see collisions, so I’m ready to give some,” he said.

Mike Mularkey focused on Colts, not permanent job

Tennessee Titans Jerseys interim head coach Mike Mularkey isn’t fretting what’s in store for him through the team’s season finale on Sunday. He’s focused on the Tennessee’s matchup with its AFC South rival, the Indianapolis Colts Jerseys.

“I’m worried about the Colts right now,” Mularkey said per the Tennessean. “Maybe by Saturday, when (the game plan) is in place, you wonder … but we’ll know when this is over with next week.”

Mularkey was named the interim head coach following the termination of Ken Whisenhunt on November 3 — five days cheap jerseys us before a Week 9 matchup with New Orleans wholesale jerseys. Whisenhunt’s dismissal was untimely and awkward for the Titans. As Mularkey notes, it was not a seamless transition.

“It was a difficult situation for a lot of people,” he said. “When it all went down, there just wasn’t room for change in a lot of areas, based on where we were Tuesday, getting ready to play a game on Sunday. You’re not changing personnel, you’re not changing scheme. It is what it is. This is the way we have to move forward. For the most part, I think there’s been some progress made.”

The Titans currently stand at 3-12 — two of those three wins were under Mularkey’s reign (Week 9, 13).

Mularkey said Monday that more time at the helm would be ideal cheap nfl jerseys.

“I think anybody would tell you yes on that,” he said. “If you had an opportunity to have a year, an offseason, from start to finish, it certainly helps. I’m not sure that one year is enough.”

Mularkey confirmed that he has not discussed his future (or that of his coaching staff) with general manager Ruston Webster.
