Source: Redskins get former Eagles corner Ronald Darby

The Washington Redskins, who have already unloaded their top two corners from last season, turned to a division rival to help fill a void, signing veteran Ronald Darby, a source told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. Darby signed a one-year deal worth $4 million.nike nfl jerseys cheap china

The Redskins cut Josh Norman before free agency and traded corner Quinton Dunbar. Darby won’t automatically replace one of them in the starting lineup, but he does provide an intriguing option. The Redskins also signed Kendall Fuller in free agency. They also have veteran Fabian Moreau and second-year Jimmy Moreland among others who can compete for starting jobs or key roles.

Darby, 26, was arguably the Eagles’ most gifted cornerback during his three years in Philadelphia, which included a Super Bowl run in 2017, but injuries kept him from being a consistent force.8

He missed 28 of a possible 48 games over the past three seasons, including eight games in 2018 after tearing an ACL. He returned for the start of this past season but was in and out of the lineup and finished with two interceptions and 11 passes defensed over 11 games.cheap nfl nike jersey

A second-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 2015, Darby started 29 of 32 games during his two years with the Bills. With 21 passes defensed and a pair of interceptions, he finished second in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting behind Marcus Peters.

Darby was traded to Philadelphia before the start of the 2017 season for receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick.

Agents: Vic Beasley Jr. to sign with Titans

Former Atlanta Falcons pass-rusher Vic Beasley Jr. will sign with the Tennessee Titans, his agency, CAA, told ESPN’s Dianna Russini on Tuesday.

Beasley, who turns 28 in July, made a name for himself during the 2016 season when he led the league with 15.5 sacks. He had four multi-sack games that season, including 3.5 sacks against the Denver Broncos. Beasley also had six forced fumbles in ’16, which tied Bruce Irvin for the league lead.nike jerseys nfl cheap

The Falcons expected the one-time Pro Bowler to thrive after his breakout second season. Beasley regressed instead, recording just 10 sacks combined in the 2017 and 2018 seasons.8

Beasley had just 1.5 sacks through the first seven games of last season. He then experienced a second-half resurgence and finished with a team-leading eight sacks. Ultimately, the Falcons decided to part ways with Beasley by announcing in a Feb 3 statement that they were not going to negotiate a new contract.

Beasley fits the Titans’ need for an impact pass-rusher to come off the edge, matching him with third-year player Harold Landry.

The Titans will need to make sure that Beasley is able to set the edge against the run. At times with the Falcons, he was not able to hold outside containment, which is something the Titans ask their outside linebackers to do in run defense. In some circles, Beasley was labeled as a sack-chaser, and he’ll need to be more than just that for Titans coach Mike Vrabel.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Beasley was Falcons coach Dan Quinn’s first draft pick and the eighth overall selection in the 2015 draft. In five seasons, Beasley has 156 tackles, 37.5 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and an interception.

Some believe Beasley’s athleticism still makes him a valuable asset. He showed the ability to drop into coverage at times when not focused on pass rushing.

Jaguars reach 3-year deal with DL Rodney Gunter, source says

The Jacksonville Jaguars have reached agreement on a three-year deal with former Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Rodney Gunter, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Gunter started 13 games at defensive end for the Cardinals before he was placed on injured reserve in 2019, tallying 31 tackles and three sacks with 10 quarterback hurries. He suffered a toe injury and missed the final three games.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Gunter, who turned 28 in January, is coming off a one-year deal worth $1.7 million.7

A fourth-round pick of the Cardinals in 2015, Gunter had his best season as a pro in 2018, finishing with career highs in sacks (4.5), tackles (44) and forced fumbles (2).

He has been durable, playing four complete seasons before suffering his injury at the end of 2019.nike jerseys nfl cheap

For his NFL career, he has 11 sacks and 126 tackles.

An email changed NFL draft prospect James Morgan, and city of Green Bay’s bleak QB history

In a city that enjoyed more elite quarterback play than any other in the NFL over the past three decades, guys like James Morgan should be more than a once-every-32-years occurrence.

It’s been that long, however, since a quarterback who played high school football in Green Bay, Wisconsin, heard his name called in the NFL draft.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

Morgan, who is draft-eligible this year, couldn’t name the most recent one picked. He had never heard of Bud Keyes from the University of Wisconsin via Green Bay West High School, who was a 10th-round pick (No. 256 overall) of the hometown Packers in 1988.

Morgan could see a statue of Bart Starr every day if he wanted, and had quarterbacks such as Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers playing down the street to idolize.8

“I was [Favre’s No.] 4 up until eighth grade and then in high school I switched to [Rodgers’] 12,” Morgan said last week at the NFL scouting combine. “I’ll let you connect the dots on that one.”

For Morgan, it’s less about dots on a map and more about the path to the NFL.nike nfl jerseys cheap china

But one thing made Renner finally read Morgan’s message: the need for a quarterback. FIU had just completed the 2017 season with Alex McGough under center. McGough led the Panthers to an eight-win season and their first bowl game in six years. McGough, who is now on the Houston Texans, was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the seventh round.

It was the morning of Jan. 3, 2018. At 7 a.m., Renner and the rest of the FIU staff had a scheduled meeting with coach Butch Davis to talk about returning players for next season and recruits.

“It’s about 6:30 in the morning, and I’ve got to come up with something,” Renner said. “I literally typed in ‘quarterback’ into the search bar of my email, and sure enough it was James’ email. I read the email.”

Browns fire coach Freddie Kitchens after 1 season, 6-10 finish

Even after a dispiriting loss to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Cleveland Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens spoke like he’d have a job to come to on Monday.

Turned out, he would not.

Shortly after the team landed from Cincinnati, owner Jimmy Haslam and general manager John Dorsey met with Kitchens at the team’s practice facility to fire him following one season in which Cleveland finished 6-10.

“We thank Freddie for his hard work and commitment to this organization but did not see the success or opportunities for improvement to move forward with him as our head coach,” the Haslams said. “Our focus is on hiring an exceptional leader for this football team and we will take a comprehensive approach to this process. We are excited about the core players we have to build around and develop and we look forward to bringing in a strong head coach that will put this group of players in the best position to succeed.“nfl nike jersey cheap

The Haslams have now gone through six head coaches, including interims, since buying the team in 2012. Cleveland will be hiring its 12th head coach since returning to the NFL in 1999.7

After another listless performance in Sunday’s 33-23 loss to the then-1-14 Bengals, yet another coaching move in Cleveland felt unavoidable – even as Kitchens pushed back on any inevitability.

“We’ve got meeting scheduled through next week, and I’m looking forward to going to work tomorrow,” Kitchens said. “They have not given me any indication of anything else. Mr. Jimmy and Dee, I think they want me to do my job, and that’s what I’m gonna do – until they tell me not to, if they tell me not to.”

The Haslams had seen enough, as Kitchens’ brief tenure was enveloped by discipline issues and distractions.

The Browns ranked in the top five in penalties and penalty yardage all season.

Then on Nov. 14, in the closing seconds of a victory over Pittsburgh, star defensive end Myles Garrett ripped the helmet off Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and slugged him in the head with it. The incident left Garrett suspended indefinitely, and the ensuing melee led the NFL to fine both the Browns and Steelers $250,000 apiece.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

Before the Dec. 1 rematch, Kitchens was photographed at the movies wearing a “Pittsburgh started it” T-shirt, a reference to the brawl. After the Steelers won the game 20-13, which severely damaged Cleveland’s playoff chances, several Pittsburgh players criticized Kitchens for wearing the shirt.

Kitchens, who originally came to Cleveland last year as a running backs coach, took over as offensive coordinator midway through last season after head coach Hue Jackson was fired. With Kitchens calling plays, Mayfield thrived and went on to break the NFL rookie record with 27 passing touchdowns.

Bears LB Roquan Smith out for season with torn pec

Chicago Bears second-year linebacker Roquan Smith is being placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle, head coach Matt Nagy announced on Monday.

Smith, Chicago’s leading tackler, suffered the injury on the opening drive of the Bears’ 31-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys last Thursday night.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

“I really thought you felt him especially here in the last several games really turning it on, really playing fast,” Nagy said of Smith. “He’s always had that every play that he gets, every game that he plays, for the rest of his career, he’s only going to get better and better in my opinion… it’s just unfortunate that it ended like that.”

The eighth overall pick of the 2018 NFL draft, Smith appeared in every game last season as a rookie and recorded a team-high 122 tackles. However, Smith’s second NFL season got off to a slower-than-expected start and the Bears deactivated him in Week 4 for what the club termed “personal reasons.”7

Smith returned to Chicago’s starting lineup the following week and played much better as of late as the Bears surged to three straight wins.

“You know we all have some games where we feel like we could play a little bit better, a little bit faster, and we all have our own challenges on and off the field,” Nagy said. “He’s not the only one. But I like the fact that you know with his challenges, his own personal challenges, he came out and I thought he had a good year this year, flew around.nfl nike jerseys for cheap

“I mean you see it on tape he’s really moving fast, flying around making tackles. He’s violent, he’s always had instincts, that’s been his biggest strength and he’s violent, he’s a violent tackler. I know a lot of defensive coordinators that have come up to me and explained to me how bad they wished he was on their team and the future that he has ahead of him.”

Nagy said he’s unsure whether Smith, 22, will be ready for the beginning of the offseason program in April.

Kevin Pierre-Louis replaced Smith at linebacker for the remainder of the Cowboys game.

Oakland Raiders’ Derek Carr mourns loss of former teammate George Atkinson III

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr opened his weekly media conference by eulogizing former teammate George Atkinson III, who died Monday, three days after turning 27.

“It’s crazy how quick life can come at you, and I love George,” Carr said Wednesday. “We had a lot of fun playing basketball at 24 Hour Fitness, as well as playing football games together and competing together. He was always so joyful, man. So happy every single time. It felt like he was cut and re-signed a whole bunch of times, and every single time, he just looked so thankful to be here. So I just wanted to say that we’re thinking about him and his family that we love.”cheap nfl nike jerseys china

Atkinson was the son of former Raiders strong safety George Atkinson, a two-time Pro Bowler who played for Oakland from 1968 to 1977 and had 30 interceptions, and he appeared in five games with the Raiders in 2014, returning seven kickoffs for 134 yards.

An undrafted running back from Notre Dame, the younger Atkinson also played for the Cleveland Browns in 2016.5

His twin brother, Josh, who also played for the Fighting Irish, died last December, and Atkinson recently wrote an open letter in TheUnsealed.com describing his rough upbringing with their mother, who he said had paranoid schizophrenia and drug addiction and died in October 2018. He also wrote that his brother killed himself, about his own struggle with mental health and how he had tried to harm himself before, and about his father entering their lives when he and his brother were 13 and instilling discipline.

“Like you, I am still struggling,” Atkinson wrote. “My mother’s birthday just passed and I know the holidays this year won’t be easy. But I am trying to take life one day at a time.”cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

It has been a difficult year for the Raiders, as many former players, coaches and family members have died since last December: Josh Atkinson, Warren Wells, Duane Benson, Cedrick Hardman, Ron Sabal, Clem Daniels, Dan Conners, Bob Zeman, Gunther Cunningham, Cliff Branch, Willie Brown and George Atkinson III.

“I heard about what he wrote, obviously, but I would have never guessed that he was struggling that hard,” Carr said of Atkinson. “I know things had happened in the year prior and things like that make you hurt, but every time I was around George, I never thought that he was hurting that much, to be honest. Every time I was around him, he was full of happiness, full of joy, always joking.”

Carson Wentz: Eagles fans have right to be frustrated

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is a primary focus of fan frustration for the first time in his career, following a four-turnover performance in Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

The heat is turned up to high in Philadelphia, and Wentz gets it.china nike nfl jerseys cheap

There were plenty of issues outside of quarterback play in Sunday’s 17-9 loss to Seattle. Wentz was without his top two linemen, Lane Johnson and Brandon Brooks; receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor; and running back Jordan Howard.8

With the offensive line struggling and his receiving corps not always in proper position, Wentz was in a precarious spot. But he misfired on several standard throws and fumbled three times — losing two of them — in what was arguably the worst outing of his professional career.

The offense has scored a total of 19 points in consecutive losses to the Seahawks and Patriots.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Wentz remains unshaken, he said, as the Eagles (5-6) set their sights on the Miami Dolphins.

“I have so much confidence in my ability to turn this around and do my best and get these things fixed,” Wentz said, “that I don’t get too high or too low going through these things.”

Giants’ Jabrill Peppers has transverse process fracture; Golden Tate concussed

New York Giants safety Jabrill Peppers is likely to miss time after the team announced he suffered a transverse process fracture in his back on Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Wide receiver Golden Tate also was injured in the game, suffering a concussion because of the way he landed on his 23-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter of the 19-14 loss at Chicago.

There was no timetable set on Peppers’ return, although the Giants believe it should be this season. It will depend on his pain tolerance.

“My understanding, his too, in terms of the evaluation of it, as I knew [Sunday] he had a sore back. I guess he can return; it’s kind of relative to pain tolerance,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “So, I would say no [to season-ending].”

Peppers was in severe pain after the game Sunday. He said the injury occurred when he was hit on a kickoff return with no time remaining in the first half.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

The starting safety and returner did not return to the field in the second half.6

“I’m tough. I’m hoping it’s something I can tough through,” Peppers said after barely being able to sit and dress himself in the locker room.

Peppers, 24, acquired in the offseason in the trade that sent Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, leads the Giants with 78 tackles this season and also has an interception, which he returned for a touchdown.

Tate, 31, has 36 receptions for 450 yards and four touchdowns in his first season with the Giants after signing with the team in free agency. He already missed four games this season serving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

With Tate now in doubt for Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, the Giants face the prospects of another week without their full arsenal. They have not played a game this season with Tate, wide receiver Sterling Shepard, running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram working alongside rookie quarterback Daniel Jones.

Engram (foot) missed Sunday’s seventh straight loss, which dropped the Giants’ record to 2-9.

Fantasy fallout: Goodbye Saquon Barkley, hello Daniel Jones

Normally you can’t accuse this column of any sort of East Coast bias. But the New York Giants changed that this week by becoming the center of the fantasy universe. For better and for worse.

We lost the consensus No. 1 draft pick, Saquon Barkley, to a high ankle sprain for an estimated 4-8 weeks. But we gained “Danny Dimes,” thanks to the surprisingly explosive debut of rookie quarterback Daniel Jones — which should also boost the value of tight end Evan Engram and receivers Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate, according to ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan.

“Engram and Shepard, they’re like on Cloud 9 right now,” said Raanan, who said it’s no coincidence that both of them had 100-yard games in Jones’ debut — because not only does he throw the ball deep with accuracy, but he also keeps plays alive with his legs longer than previous QB Eli Manning did.5

Raanan had a great breakdown of how Jones’ mobility played such a big role in the Giants’ 32-31 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in which he threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 28 yards and two more TDs.cheap nfl nike jerseys china

Raanan stopped short of predicting Shepard will become a top-20 fantasy receiver, because he thinks Shepard and Tate could be somewhat interchangeable when Tate returns from a suspension in Week 5.

However, Raanan does believe that Jones himself can be a legitimate fantasy asset — especially when you throw in those bonus points he can provide in the running game.

“I mean, he’s done it pretty consistently,” Raanan said. “He completed 85% of his passes in the preseason. That’s really good no matter who you’re playing against. And he’s not throwing dink and dunks — he’s willing to throw it down the field. That’s probably the thing he does best. He averaged 9.8 air yards per attempt.

“And he’s gonna put up numbers because their defense is not very good. So they’re gonna have to score points.”cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

Raanan did offer some notes of caution, though. For one thing, fumbling has been an Achilles’ heel for Jones, with three of them in the preseason and three of them already in limited regular-season action. And, of course, the Giants’ offense will lose some potency while Barkley is sidelined, especially when they face top defenses such as New England and Minnesota in Weeks 5-6.

As for replacing Barkley, Raanan said he thinks third-year RB Wayne Gallman is “their guy” and that he should see around 15 carries per game. He certainly won’t replace the production level of Barkley — and Raanan doesn’t think he will see nearly as much work in the passing game, some of which could go to fullback Elijhaa Penny. But Raanan said he’s a little higher on Gallman’s running ability than others seem to be and thinks he could have moderate success because the opportunity will be there.
