A rookie could be the heir to Vikings' throne of royal return men

MINNEAPOLIS -- It's been nearly a decade since the Minnesota Vikings had to worry about whether they'd start drives in prime field position.

it was Percy Harvin establishing himself as one of the most dynamic return men in the league, taking back five kicks for touchdowns from 2009-12. Then,First, it was Cordarrelle Patterson leading the league in return average during three of his four years in Minnesota, earning two All-Pro honors and scoring five kick return TDs of his own.

Since the Vikings drafted Harvin in 2009, the last time the Vikings didn't rank in the top 10 in average field position after a kick return was 2008. Since then,Tevin Coleman Jersey , first, they've been first,Joe Flaccos Jersey , seventh, third, they've enjoyed premium field position after kickoffs more often than almost any team in the league. According to ESPN Stats and Information, third,Authentic Eric Weddle Jersey , sixth, first and second during their eight years of Harvin and Patterson.

with Patterson in Oakland,Jim Kelly Jersey , the Vikings will have to determine whether they've got a return man capable of staking them to the same advantage. Wide receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have experience as returners,Now, but both might be too valuable to the offense to be employed on kick returns. Running back Jerick McKinnon could fall in the same category. Rather, the Vikings' next return man might be one of the two receivers they took on the third day of the draft.

Rodney Adams, averaged 24.3 yards on 47 career returns for the Hurricanes, returned 46 kicks in college, averaging 29.1 yards a return and scoring a touchdown as a junior. Stacy Coley, a fifth-round pick from South Florida, whom the Vikings picked in the seventh round out of Miami, scoring once in 2014.

Both have the speed for the job, with 40-yard dash times under 4.45 seconds. Both will likely get chances to take the job. And both would be counted on to continue a legacy of high-performance returners.

"Both of them are very explosive athletes, have excellent speed, and we even went back if they didn’t return this year we got back to 2014,Authentic Tevin Coleman Jersey , you watch him on tape,Authentic Joe Flaccos Jersey , and he’s making big plays all the time. They’re running jet sweeps and for a tall,Authentic Justin Tucker Jersey , linear kid, he gets hit,Justin Tucker Jersey , and he’ll bounce right back up. But," general manager Rick Spielman said on Saturday. "Adams,Eric Weddle Jersey , is kind of a slot receiver, we watch all their returns,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey , 2015, whatever we have to do to find those returns. We think both have explosive play-making ability as kickoff returners."

apart from their regular draft board,Spielman said the Vikings keep a separate board for kick returners and punt returners, and spent three hours last Friday night scouring their options for potential successors to Patterson.

and I know we wanted to make sure we had some potential guys that can step in and fill in as a kickoff returner,"We kind of tie those two boards in together with what they are as a position," Spielman said. "I think some of these guys can be potential punt returners down the road as well. So it’ll all be open competition."

they've had more than a few offenses that could use a boost to start a drive. With Patterson's run ending after four years, just as Harvin's did,During the Vikings' era of dominant return men, it could be up to one of the Vikings' two rookies to provide the same kind of edge.

Redskins' Josh Doctson back after Achilles tendon injuries

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Josh Doctson is confident his Achilles tendons are strong enough to carry the weight of his own expectations.

The Washington Redskins' first-round pick a year ago missed all of training camp and all but two games in his rookie season because of injuries to the Achilles tendon in each heel. The TCU product has declared himself 100 percent healthy during offseason organized team activities. That's good news for the Redskins, who are going to need his production.

With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon departed via free agency, Washington is counting on Doctson to be a big part of the receiving corps along with newly-signed Terrelle Pryor.

''I got drafted pretty high,'' said Doctson, so I was ready to get out here and show my teammates and coaches and everybody I am what they drafted, who was picked 22nd overall in 2016. ''It sucked to not be out there. But this year it's going to be different.''

Doctson watched Jackson and especially Garcon,During his lost rookie year, hoping the visuals of their routes makes up for his lack of practice and game snaps. All Doctson could do was watch as he dealt with ''the most unique injury'' he has dealt with in his career.

Doctson's season ended after two catches in two games for 66 yards. The use of underwater therapy,When compensation for the left Achilles tendon injury caused him to injure his other one, resistance bands and other exercises to keep weight off his feet while strengthening at the same time allowed the 24-year-old to begin running again in March.

Doctson set the goal of getting completely healthy and had to at times be held back and protected from his own desire to do too much too fast.,Along the way

''I was just taking it slow, 'Hey I want to get out here and run,[url=http://www.lionsfootballauthentic.com/jarrad-davis-jersey-authentic]
Jarrad Davis Jersey[/url], baby steps,Authentic Kenny Golladay Jersey,'' said Doctson,Brad Kaaya Jersey, who was held out of team drills Wednesday with coach Jay Gruden saying it's not related to Achilles tendon issues. ''There was days I came out here and I would tell the strength coaches,Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey,' and those guys were telling me, there's no rush.' Even during OTAs I'm just full speed but I'm also maintaining at the same time. You don't want to do too much because it's my second year so I know training camp is when I need to be ready to go.'', 'No, just wait

so there's no such thing as an approach that's too cautious this time. Gruden said Doctson had a great workout Tuesday and last week raved about the young receiver's impressive progress.,Doctson was injured during offseason camps last year

''The big thing for him is the confidence in his Achilles, we have got to taper off for him, and I think he's got that right now,'' Gruden said. ''It looks like he can run down the field. ... If he does have soreness, but right now, like the way he runs and love the way he catches.'', so far, so good. I like the way he looks

who had to get his whole body back into alignment after the injury. Doctson started developing chemistry with quarterback Kirk Cousins during some informal workouts with other receivers in Tampa in late March but is spending his time on the field now attempting to recapture his rhythm.,Authentic Jarrad Davis Jersey,http://www.lionsfootballauthentic.com/teez-tabor-jersey-authentic" target="_new" rel="nofollow">Authentic Teez Tabor Jersey,Those things are still a work in progress for Doctson

''I was just making sure my technique is right,[url=http://www.lionsfootballauthentic.com/teez-tabor-jersey-authentic]
Teez Tabor Jersey[/url],[url=http://www.lionsfootballauthentic.com/jalen-reeves-maybin-jersey-authentic]
Kenny Golladay Jersey[/url],'' Doctson said. ''You don't always get the ball, so I'm just making sure I'm running good routes and my body position and all that and I'm just making plays.''

NOTES: TE Jordan Reed,Authentic Brad Kaaya Jerse,Authentic Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey, LT Trent Williams and RB Matt Jones did not participate for the second consecutive week. Gruden said Reed and Williams continue to work out elsewhere while Jones, who has been passed on the depth chart by Rob Kelley and others, chose not to attend the voluntary workouts.

Mass. — There’s a reason Lawrence Guy,FOXBORO, is listed vaguely on the Patriots’ roster
, like many players in New England

as a defensive lineman.

305 pounds,Guy, at 6-foot-4, is the size of a defensive tackle, but the Patriots love versatility because they play a hybrid
defensive front. Sometimes the Patriots will be in a 3-4, and there are moments when it’s
, other times they’ll be in a 4-3

neither or both.

who signed as an unrestricted free agent in March,Authentic Deatrich Wise Jr.Jersey,The Patriots didn’t have a player like Guy,Authentic Marshon Lattimore Jersey,
, on their roster last season

eschewing the mid-sized defensive linemen for traditional edge rushers and nose tackle types. There’s a good chance Guy will
because head coach
]Authentic Ryan Ramczyk Jersey[/url],be asked to play anywhere from nose tackle to seven-technique defensive end with the Patriots this season

Bill Belichick asked if he could handle that type of responsibility when he visited New England as a free agent.

‘I feel comfortable anywhere you put me at.’ It’s one of those situations with me as a player that I … found that
,Marcus Williams Jersey,“I said

” Guy said Wednesday at Gillette Stadium. “Coming
,I needed to play different positions for me to be the best player I can be

wherever they need to put me at,in this situation,
, I can go ahead and do it. I’m not a great corner. I’m a little bit heavy

but I’ll try it.”

The Patriots should be just fine at cornerback.

I’ll do what I gotta do to make a play,” Guy said. “It doesn’t matter if I’m at nose (tackle),“You put me on the field,
(five-technique defensive end),(three-technique defensive tackle), (six-technique defensive end) or (seven-technique defensive
end). I’ve seen it and played it all, so I’m just happy to go out there and play and make plays.”

The Patriots have more certainty at defensive tackle than they do at defensive end at this point in the offseason. Defensive
tackles Alan Branch and Malcom Brown are multi-year starters, and Vincent Valentine showed flashes as a rookie in 2016. Only
Trey Flowers and Rob Ninkovich return from the Patriots’ 2016 defensive end rotation. They added veteran Kony Ealy and rookies
Deatrich Wise and Corey Vereen. They also have Geneo Grissom,Derek Rivers,Deatrich Wise Jr.Jersey, who almost exclusively played special teams last

That means Guy might be inserted into the Patriots’ defensive tackle and defensive end rotations this season. That will be
especially necessary if Rivers and Wise don’t prove they can contribute as rookies. The Patriots also won’t be forced to play
an undersized player out of position as they did last season with Chris Long at five-technique defensive end.

so if they put me at a position they need me to work at,Marshon Lattimore Jersey,http://www.saintsfootballauthentic.com/ryan-ramczyk-jersey-authentic" target="_new" rel="nofollow">Ryan Ramczyk Jersey, I’ll go out there and do it,Authentic Marcus Williams Jersey,Authentic Alvin Kamara Jersey,“I like to be on the field,” Guy said.
“The whole object is to be able to play multi positions on the field so you can be out there for the most time you can and how
you’re not really helping the team. If you can do multiple things,Alvin Kamara Jersey,you help the team out. If you can only do one thing, you
can help the team a lot.”

Another member of the Jacksonville Jaguars rookie class is under contract. When Cam Robinson inked his first NFL contract on Wednesday, it meant the team’s potential starting left tackle won’t have to worry about negotiating a deal while learning the pro game.

” Robinson said via Jaguars.com. “It’s something you always dream about, since you were a kid. When you’re a kid,“It feels great, this is a life-long goal. …

everything’s kind of going fast. I think when I get time to actually sit down and think about it, I’ll realize how big of a deal it is. Right now,“Right now,Authentic Lorenzo Mauldin Jersey, I’m just taking it all in stride.”

Robinson participated in the Jaguars’ rookie minicamp in mid-May and is now in his second week working with the team during organized team activities.

” Robinson said. “There are always a ton of things I can improve on; the type of player I am,Authentic Bryce Petty Jersey,“I think it’s going well,Karl Joseph Jersey, I’m always looking to improve. But I think for the most part I’ve made pretty good strides and done a good job of progressing day in and day out.”

Josh Dobbs will be backing up both Landry Jones and Ben Roethlisberger in 2017.

That's according to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com, who wrote on Tuesday that Jones will remain the Steelers' primary backup quarterback this season. Many thought Dobbs -- Pittsburgh's fourth round pick in this year's draft -- would get a chance to compete with Jones for the team's No.2 position on the depth chart.

but it’s the truth.", and Josh Dobbs will be No. 3,"There is no battle. Landry Jones will be the backup quarterback," Labrioola wrote. "Maybe that’s not what you want to hear

Keep up to date with the 6X Super Bowl champions!

Jones signed a two-year,Pittsburgh's backup quarterback since the 2013 season, $4.4 million deal with the Steelers back in March after not receiving any offers on the open market.

"I wasn't going to be stupid. If there was a place to go play somewhere, I'm going go back to Pittsburgh.',DeVante Parker Jersey," Jones said,Jordan Phillip Jersey, I would want to take that chance and give myself that take that opportunity, via Steelers.com. "It didn't turn out. So once that was over with,Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey, I was like,Trae Waynes Jersey, 'Shoot

and I'm just thankful that I have a job and a spot to come back to. It was the best decision for me and my family. For us, if all things were equal, I wasn't going to go anywhere. I wasn't going to leave Pittsburgh. They've treated me so well here,"There wasn't any tough decision about it. I'm very familiar with this place, so that's where my mindset was."

Jones is 2-2 as a starting quarterback over the past two seasons that includes going 1-1 last season. Ironically,After not receiving a single regular season snap during his first two NFL seasons, Jones' most impressive performance thus far came in Pittsburgh's Week 7 loss to New England that saw him complete 29 of 47 passes for 281 yards and one touchdown with one interception. He threw a second touchdown pass that was called back due to a holding penalty in the Steelers' 27-16 defeat.

it was a great information gathering for us.,Authentic DeVante Parker Jersey,http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/jordan-phillips-jersey-authentic" target="_new" rel="nofollow">Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey,Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey," Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said earlier this offseason. "He's been given an opportunity to grow and show growth,Laquon Treadwell Jersey,Mackensie Alexander Jersey,"He has continually improved over his four years with us. He's answered the call and really answered the call in an above the line manner, and that growth has been consistent from our perspective. The opportunity that he had in Week 17 to deliver victory for us was a great experience for him

"We're extremely conformable with the overall trajectory of his career,Authentic Trae Waynes Jersey, (and) we're hopeful for what he's able to provide for us moving forward."

While the Steelers may have drafted Dobbs to be Big Ben's eventual successor, the team apparently does not want to rush him onto the field while being comfortable in Jones being the team's backup quarterback in 2017.

Elston withstood several late charges from Woodworth for his flag-to-flag victory.

"I just made my car a little wider,Joe Flaccos Jersey," Elston said of being able to hold off Woodworth.

Elston remains one of the biggest boosters of the more cost-efficient first-year crate class.

Latavius Murray already needed to sit out two games last season due to turf toe, then something was bothering him during the first Raiders-Broncos
game in Week 9.

You couldn’t tell by looking at him, but during Murray’s best game in a trying season he injured the ankle that would require arthroscopic surgery
right after the Vikings signed him to a three-year, $15 million deal in March.

Murray ran for 114 yards and three touchdowns despite injuring his right ankle against the vaunted Broncos defense. From then on he averaged fewer
than 3.0 yards per carry in four of the last seven games.

so I was really just trying to play through it and suck it up,“I thought it was a sprain or that’s what was communicated to me,” Murray said
I figured I’d get some rest,Wednesday. “At the end of the season, heal up and it’ll get better. But at that point it hadn’t and I wanted to get
it checked up. That’s when I found out I had a bigger problem and needed surgery.”

who has played 45 of 48 games in the last three seasons,But Murray, has been through this before. Having suffereda similar injury and rehab on his
left ankle as a rookie sixth-round pick in 2013 has given Murray some comfort as he transitionsfrom the Raiders to the Vikings.

” Murray said. “I’ve dealt with this rehab,Authentic Jarran Reed Jersey,“My rookie year I had the same injury on the other foot,Authentic C. J. Prosise Jersey, I’ve dealt with this surgery. I think that’s
because I’m feeling great,Authentic Nick Vannett Jersey,been a benefit for me, but I also knew what to expect. The rehab process has been really good.”

who is out of the walking boot and expects to be running unassisted again in about a week,Rees Odhiambo Jersey,Murray, said he’s not worried about a career setback due
having ran for all 2,to the operation,278 career yards and 20 touchdowns after the similar operation four years ago.

“There was nothing I was afraid of that I thought I’d have a setback from,” Murray said. “I knew it because I’ve had it before and I knew that

he’s attempting a return in half the time. In 2013,This time around, Murray underwent arthroscopic surgery on his ankle in August and was placed on
injured reserve before the season started. He said he made a full return about nine months later to the field when the Raiders offseason program began
in 2014.

Both Murray and the Vikings expect him to be ready by training camp, or about four months after this ankle surgery. The Vikings could use the 6-foot-3

those guys are going to do the same.”

New York Giants wide receiver Roger Lewis was arrested over the weekend for operating a vehicle while impaired in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.

Lewis was pulled over driving a 2012 Audi at 4:16 a.m. Sunday by Reynoldsburg police. He was stopped for speeding and driving with tinted windows.
According to reports, police smelled marijuana and noticed signs of intoxication. The police report also stated that Lewis was possibly using alcohol
and 0.2 grams of marijuana were found in his car.

Lewis refused to take a Breathalyzer test and taken into custody around 5 a.m. He was released his own recognizance and was at the Giants’ practice
facility in East Rutherford, New Jersey for Monday’s session of organized team activities (OTAs). He is scheduled to appear before a Municipal Court
judge on Wednesday.

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

Lewis signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Bowling Green in 2016. In high school, Lewis was a star at Pickerington (Ohio) Central
High School who initially committed to play his college ball at Ohio State.

During his senior year, he was arrested on two counts of rape. It was alleged Lewis raped a classmate in the basement of another classmate’s home in
2011. The second charge accused him of raping the same classmate in the back seat of her car in January,Authentic DeVante Parker Jersey,December,Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey, 2012.

Lewis was acquitted of one charge of rape and the jury deadlocked on the second charge,Laquon Treadwell Jersey, resulting in a mistrial. In order to avoid a re-trial,Mackensie Alexander Jersey, Lewis
pled guilty to making false statements to police and received three years of probation. The guilty plea to making false statements to police dismissed
the rape charges.

Instead of playing for the Buckeyes on Saturday afternoons, a post high school, Lewis went to Jireh Preparatory Academy, college prep institution in
Matthews, North Carolina, before playing at Bowling Green.

Lewis caught seven passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns (including the 300th career touchdown for quarterback Eli Manning) in 2016. He is fairly
deep on the receivers’ depth chart behind Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, Brandon Marshall,DeVante Parker Jersey,Jordan Phillip Jersey, and potentially Tavarres King. He is expected to be
in a battle with King,Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey,Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey,Authentic Trae Waynes Jersey, undrafted free agent Travis Rudolph,Trae Waynes Jersey, and practice squad receiver Darius Powe for a roster spot.

Lewis will be subject to potential discipline under the league’s personal conduct policy once his case is decided in the courts. He may be fined,
suspended, or both.

EAST RUTHERFORD,Josh Doctson Jersey, 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,Su'a Cravens Jersey, reflect on life and take time to ''grow and mature.''

40-minute workout and dropped one deep ball.,Authentic Nate Sudfeld Jersey,The 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

From the time he hit the field,Brandon Scherff Jersey, photographers and video crews. He was relaxed after practice and hedged several times when asked about his contract., it seemed his every move was studied by reporters

Beckham is one of the NFL's top receivers and he will earn $1.8 million in this his fourth season, 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.

so that was never in my mind to: 'I'm not going to go to OTAs to get a new contract,''I have seen a holdout and all that stuff and I have really never seen it work,''' Beckham said. ''I don't really think that proves a point in my opinion.

really important,''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,'' 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.

''It's like LeBron losing the (NBA) Finals,Authentic Josh Doctson Jersey,Authentic Su'a Cravens Jersey,Authentic Kendall Fuller Jersey,'' 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.''

Beckham said his relationship with Reese has not changed,Kendall Fuller Jersey,Nate Sudfeld Jersey, adding that his goal is to mature every day. He also noted he has added a couple of gray hairs.

When told co-owner John Mara wants him to be a Giant for life,Authentic Brandon Scherff Jersey, Beckham seemed happy.

''I think we are on the same page there,'' he said.

Coach Ben McAdoo said it was great to have Beckham back.

''He didn't miss a beat when he came in,'' McAdoo said. ''He looks in good condition.''

Quarterback Eli Manning didn't think that Beckham missed much by skipping the OTAs nor did he think his absence was a distraction.

'' said Manning,''He'll be fine, who talked and texted with Beckham in the offseason. ''He'll know what he is doing. He'll be ready to do.''

Kendall Fuller was drafted by the Redskins with high expectations.

However, Fuller has suffered some injuries that have prevented him from displaying his true potential so far.

Before the 2015 season at Virginia Tech,Authentic Arik Armstead Jersey, Fuller tore the meniscus in his right knee during preseason camp. After just three games,Authentic Jaquiski Tartt Jersey, Fuller elected to have it repaired and missed the rest of the season.

Following that, Fuller decided to forgo his senior year and declared for the NFL Draft. The 22-year old cornerback was selected by Washington in the third round (84th overall) of the 2016 draft.

At first,Eli Harold Jersey, the Redskins were patient with Fuller's recovery process and did not want to rush him back onto the field. But after many defensive backs suffered injuries,Tyler Lockett Jersey, Fuller was forced into heavy action,Germain Ifedi Jersey, probably earlier than he or the team would have liked.

In 13 games, Fuller's overall performance was often underwhelming. He recorded 42 total tackles, deflected just two passes and struggled to defend slot receivers.

This season, though, should be different.

"Kendall Fuller is back, he's healthy right now, that's the biggest difference you'll see with him," Redskins defensive backs coach Torrian Gray said Tuesday at the team's minicamp.

Gray and Kendall Fuller have a history together,Arik Armstead Jersey,Jaquiski Tartt Jersey, in fact.

Gray was defensive backs coach at Virginia Tech from 2006-2012, where he and Fuller eventually crossed paths.

"He came in as a freshman and he was big time right away,Authentic Eli Harold Jersey," Gray said. "You could see that he was a special player and unfortunately he had the injury at Virginia Tech."

Out of all of the defensive backs in OTAs,Authentic Tyler Lockett Jersey, Gray has specifically kept his eye on Fuller,Authentic Germain Ifedi Jersey, knowing the potential he has.

"I'd say Kendall has been the one guy that has really impressed me because, like I said, the guy I've seen on film last year and the guy that I'm seeing right now is a lot different of a player," Gray said.

With Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland being the top corners, the competition for the slot cornerback position is wide open, and Fuller could make a run at it.

Head coach Jay Gruden can also see a key difference in Fuller compared to last season.

"Talking to him yesterday or today, I think he feels a lot better in where he is physically," Gruden said. "I think this is he feels like his strength is back. He's got a little bit more speed and quickness and I think you'll see a better player."

The Redskins defense allowed the eighth-most passing yards per game in the 2016 season. That means the emergence of Kendall Fuller can't come soon enough.

We might not know yet who will be throwing the passes,Authentic Eric Weddle Jersey, but the Cleveland Browns receiving corps looks to be one of the NFL’s best in one key area: drops.

The Browns ranked pretty well in 2016 in drops by the receivers. According to Sporting Charts, Cleveland tied with Carolina at No. 11 in fewest percentage of dropped passes at 3.8. Browns receivers dropped 21 of their 558 total targets.

Kenny Britt,However,Tevin Coleman Jersey, both with four. They’re both gone. Pryor’s replacement,Joe Flaccos Jersey, 2017 looks to be even better in this regard. Two of the three players who had the most drops for the 2016 Browns were Gary Barnidge and Terrelle Pryor, had three drops on 111 targets (2.7 percent) with the Rams.

the first-round rookie tight end who will replace Barnidge as the primary receiving TE. He had some drop issues at Miami and during the NFL Scouting Combine,A lot depends on David Njoku, though he’s not shown any problems during OTAs.

especially given the contrasting velocity from Cody Kessler to Brock Osweiler. That would show more with the shorter throws,Authentic Tevin Coleman Jersey,Authentic Joe Flaccos Jersey,Authentic Justin Tucker Jersey,Having just one QB throwing the ball can only help,Justin Tucker Jersey,Eric Weddle Jersey, which impacts the running backs and tight ends.
