New Buffalo Sabres head coach Phil Housley hired Chris Hajt to serve as one of his assistants, the team announced Monday.

he helped guide them to a Calder Cup championship after the 2014-15 season. The team also made the playoffs in each of the last two seasons as the Ontario Reign,authentic Jaromir Jagr jersey,Hajt,authentic Drew Doughty jersey, spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Kings' American Hockey League affiliate. When the Kings' AHL affiliate was the Manchester Monarchs,adidas Dustin Brown jersey, 39,adidas Jonathan Quick jersey, including a division title in 2015-16.

Saskatchewan, native is the son of former NHL defenseman Bill Hajt,The Saskatoon, who was Housley's teammate in Buffalo in the 1980s. Housley was named the 18th head coach in Sabres history on June 15.

"It's been a process with that because we're trying to do a thorough search for really good candidates and there's a lot of really good coaches out there," Housley told the Buffalo News last week of his coaching search. "But you wanna just make sure you do the right thing and look at everybody. We still have the coach that we're looking at and trying to fill that position."

Chris Hajt also served as an assistant coach for the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League from 2008 to 2014.

Hajt played six NHL games for the Edmonton Oilers and Washington Capitals,adidas Jaromir Jagr jersey,adidas Drew Doughty jersey,adidas Anze Kopitar jersey, adding 91 points (20 goals,authentic Anze Kopitar jersey,authentic Dustin Brown jersey,authentic Jonathan Quick jersey,A former defenseman, 71 assists) in 477 career AHL contests.

The Sabres also announced that assistant coach Tom Ward will return for the 2017-18 season. Ward spent the past two seasons as an assistant under Dan Bylsma, who was fired in April after the Sabres missed the playoffs for the sixth straight season.

the Sabres hired another assistant coach from the Kings organization, Davis Payne,On July 5, as their associate coach. He spent parts of three seasons as head coach of the St. Louis Blues from 2010 to 2011 and has been an assistant with the Kings for the past five seasons.

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith is using technology to fight fraudulent sports memorabilia. The NFL’s all-time rushing leader recently launched the LEGIT app through his company PROVA Group. With this app, collectors will have a tool to verify the authenticity of their collectibles,Authentic Cam Newton Jersey, such as footballs and trading cards.

The LEGIT app works in conjunction with the PROVA SmarTag,Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey, but also the history of that memorabilia,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, which electronically connects a collectible to you. The SmarTag is a scannable RFID smart chip that can be sewn into footballs and jerseys. The chip can also be attached to trading cards. For items containing this chip,Womens Jordan Howard Jersey, you can use your smartphone, to scan the tag. The app will not only be able to tell fans and collectors that their memorabilia is legitimate, with the dowloaded LEGIT app, such as what game a football was used in and what records were set during that game.

“What we, at PROVA, are trying to do is to bring some…let’s just call it legitimacy to the whole entire process,Womens Cam Newton Jersey,” said Smith,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey,Authentic Greg Olsen Jersey, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher. “But also to create a new product that has a high level of authenticity.”

For the 2016 season,Womens Greg Olsen Jersey,Womens Walter Payton Jersey,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey, each Dallas Cowboys uniform contained a smart tag sewn into its fabric. Smith has also partnered with trading card giant Panini America to expand the use of PROVA’s technology. This past April,Authentic Andy Dalton Jersey, Panini America released an exclusive NFL trading card set featuring the SmarTag in all of Smith’s own memorabilia that retailed at $1,500. Through the partnership, LEGIT app users can link themselves to Panini in order to receive future communications and offers regarding their collectibles.

The LEGIT app can currently be downloaded through the Google Play store.
Seattle Seahawks star Richard Sherman said NFL players must be willing to go on strike if they want similar salaries seen in the NBA and MLB.

from Sammy Watkins to Emmanuel Sanders,Womens DeVante Parker Jersey,Many players,Womens Jordan Phillip Jersey, have voiced their displeasure about their NFL salaries compared to basketballers and baseballers.

With NBA free agency in its first month,Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey, several six-figure contracts have made headlines. There is one thing both NBA and MLB players have in common – they have gone on strike in past seasons.

as the NFL,Authentic Trae Waynes Jersey, players have to be willing to strike. That's the thing that guys need to 100 per cent realise, as a union,"If we want, to get anything done," Super Bowl champion and four-time Pro-Bowler Sherman said at the ESPYs on Wednesday.

you're going to have to lose some money if you're willing to make the point, they flexed every bit of power they had, because that's how MLB and NBA got it done. They missed games,"You're going to have to miss games,Authentic DeVante Parker Jersey,Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey,Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey, they struck,Womens Laquon Treadwell Jersey,Womens Mackensie Alexander Jersey,Womens Trae Waynes Jersey, and it was awesome. It worked out for them."

An NBA player lockout in 2011 shortened the season from 82 games to 66, but the players did win a larger share of revenue and the salary cap and luxury tax were both restructured.

The last MLB player strike affected both the 1994 and 1995 seasons, and resulted in the cancelation of the 1994 World Series.

but it only lasted from March to July,The NFL had its own lockout in 2011, so it did not directly affect the regular season.

NFL players did strike in 1982, resulting in a nine-game season.

Another aspect Sherman said NFL players need to look at is how their contract is structured.

Instead of mammoth five or six-year deals, NBA players take on shorter contracts for a max payday.

" Sherman said. "They figure, 'I'll take a two-year deal because I'm going to wait for the salary cap to increase and get another bite at the apple.' In our sport,"NBA players like KD[Kevin Durant] and LeBron[James] are sitting there taking two-year deals like it's nothing, they won't do it."
One of the biggest mysteries heading into the 2017 season is how the Packers will distribute touches in the backfield. We know Ty Montgomery is a full-time running back, but we don't think he's a "workhorse". We also know the team added a trio of running backs in the draft,Authentic Jaquiski Tartt Jersey,Womens Eli Harold Jersey, with Jamaal Williams seemingly being the perfect complement to Montgomery's style.

but whether last year's 374 carries were an outlier or a trend will determine the value of the running backs as much as anything. ,What may matter as much is how much the Packers run the ball. We'll get into that more below

What we don't have to worry about is the passing game, so let's start with ranking their Fantasy assets.,Authentic Arik Armstead Jersey,Womens Jaquiski Tartt Jersey,Authentic Tyler Lockett Jersey,Womens Tyler Lockett Jersey,Authentic Germain Ifedi Jersey,Womens Germain Ifedi Jersey,Authentic Eli Harold Jersey,Womens Arik Armstead Jersey, at least not with Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson. But we've never see Davante Adams and Randall Cobb be good in the same season. We've also never seen them with a tight end as talented as Martellus Bennett. There's plenty to figure out in Green Bay

*Rankings expressed below are in terms of expected Fantasy points. This is a part of our actual Fantasy Football rankings but not a direct correlation to my rankings. Things like injury risk, etc. factor into rankings but they're not being talked about here. This is simply an expectation as the team is currently constructed.
Dalvin Cook could very well wind up being the future of the Minnesota Vikings offense and the early reviews are that he could bring something to the table that the team has not had before.

Vikings Update's Tim Yotter broke down what the Florida State running back and 2017 second round pick brings to the table for the team.

he had defenders on their heels.,Womens Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey,Cook has rare speed – for the purpose of comparison, but more times than not, his skill set is along the line of Jamaal Charles or Chris Johnson. The Vikings have never had that type of running back. Peterson had breakaway speed,Authentic Jarrad Davis Jersey, his long runs were the result of eight or nine players being in the box and when he hit full speed through a hole

but he brings an element to the offense that has been absent in the offenses the Vikings have run. The other negative to consider is that he fumbled too often at Florida State.,Authentic Teez Tabor Jersey,Cook has the ability to go from zero to 60 in an instant and can take a play that looks like there is nothing available and burst into high gear quicker than most running backs. Depending on how quickly he picks up the offense (and picks up blitzers),Authentic Brad Kaaya Jersey, Cook can take any touch to the house. As with most speed backs, while Murray is a dependable north-south runner, he could push for more playing time than (Latavius) Murray because, durability has to be a legitimate question because he opens himself up to high-speed collisions

the run game could bounce back in a big way moving forward.,Womens Ezekiel Elliott Jersey,Womens Jarrad Davis Jersey,[url=http://www.lionsfootballauthentic.com/teez-tabor-jersey-authentic]
Womens Teez Tabor Jersey[/url],It's hard to not be excited about the offense in the post-Adrian Peterson era,Womens Kenny Golladay Jersey,Womens Brad Kaaya Jersey, especially in the running game. With Cook,Authentic Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey, Murray and Jerick McKinnon in the saddle and an improved offensive line.
ASHBURN — Preseason buzz last year focused upon whether the Redskins’ wide receivers were the best such unit in the NFL. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon leading the way,Authentic Lorenzo Mauldin Jersey, they certainly merited consideration.

Both players have departed for big-money deals elsewhere,Authentic Bryce Petty Jersey, but Washington’s wide receivers coach,Womens Karl Joseph Jersey, former NFL receiver Ike Hilliard,Authentic Jihad Ward Jersey, is no less excited about the group he will bring to training camp this year.

The buzz has been growing around new addition Terrelle Pryor since he arrived in Washington, but Hilliard sees big things further down the depth chart as well. Most notably, he’s bullish on Ryan Grant in the receiver’s fourth season, his final one with a rookie contract.

“I’m a Ryan Grant fan,” Hilliard said after the team’s minicamp in June. “He’s always been our best pure route runner out of every guy we’ve had, even with Pierre and D-Jax here. He’s been a consummate pro. He says nothing and works all the time.

“He’s gotten a bad rap for some situations that weren’t all completely his fault, and the world will never know that. We’ve always kept that in house.”

Grant has served as a punching bag for fans after missing key catches in limited game action. He was the targeted receiver on an overtime interception in Atlanta during the 2015 season, but the pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins was errant.

He said earlier this offseason he’s worked to put on weight and improve his route running as he approaches a potentially increased role.

“We’ve won games with him as a starter,” Hilliard said of skepticism about Grant. “He didn’t have a lot of targets,Womens Lorenzo Mauldin Jersey,Womens Bryce Petty Jersey, but he did do his job pretty well when he was out there.”

The receivers coach is equally enthusiastic about welcoming Jamison Crowder back for a third campaign.

Crowder,Womens Jihad Ward Jersey,Authentic Karl Joseph Jersey,Authentic Shilique Calhoun Jersey, who was described by his position coach as the team’s best blocker (“because he’ll stick his face in there”),Womens Shilique Calhoun Jersey, will likely see the bulk of his action from the slot receiver position, though Hilliard said he wants to make sure all of his receivers can play from any position.

Part of that could be chalked up to lingering uncertainty about Josh Doctson, last year’s first-round draft pick who missed most of the season with an Achilles injury.

Hilliard said he’s been consistently impressed by Doctson’s talent and work ethic, and he’s hopeful fans get to see that this year on the field.

There were also words of praise for Pryor, who transitioned from quarterback to wide receiver last year with the Browns. Was Hilliard surprised by Pryor’s success?

“I think everybody in the world was surprised,” Hilliard said. “It’s not an easy transition to make when you take former quarterbacks and put them in the situation of getting hit more and being exposed to different things. In terms of the physical aspect of the game, he plays the game aggressively, and he’s made the transition well.”

Now Pryor and the Redskins receivers will seek to duplicate the success of their predecessors, this time while flying under the radar in the preseason.
While Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise is getting his first football camp underway,Authentic Ben Gedeon Jersey, quarterback Russell Wilson also took to the field to kick off the Russell Wilson Passing Academy.

Wilson shared videos on Instagram marking the day’s events.

“We’re here at the RWPA baby. We’re having a good time. What’s happening? We’re makin’ plays out here. Yeah!” Wilson said in a video with some of the camp’s participants.

Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse also made an apppearance at the camp held at his alma mater,Authentic James White Jersey, the University of Washington.

who serves as RWPA’s head coach,NFL quarterback and former teammate Jake Heaps, was also seen on Kearse’s Instagram story.

Heaps and Wilson announced earlier this week they would partner on forming the Russell Wilson Quarterback Academy,Womens Jaleel Johnson Jersey,Womens Ben Gedeon Jersey,Womens Latavius Murray Jersey,Womens James White Jersey, an elite training academy for quarterbacks of all ages.

Dustin Brown has carved a niche as Wimbledon’s biennial circus act. Always looking like he has arrived for the Notting Hill Carnival six weeks early, his playing style, he elicits astonished yelps from a Wimbledon audience smitten by the novelty of a Rastafarian in whites. In 2013, pushed Lleyton Hewitt a step closer to retirement. Two years later, he dispatched Rafael Nadal amid a hail of twinkle-toed trick shots. This time, most politely described as unorthodox, though, he found that his scattergun bombardment put barely a scratch on the slab of Scottish granite that was Andy Murray.

The devil-may-care Brown had his moments,adidas Jaromir Jagr jersey, with one leaping backhand drive-volley proving a particular highlight. But Murray was too cussed,adidas Drew Doughty jersey, as usual, too disciplined to be derailed by any exhibition match excesses. In a shade over 1? hours,adidas Anze Kopitar jersey, he committed a mere five unforced errors and allowed his gangly opponent just 14 points on his serve in waltzing to a 6-3,adidas Dustin Brown jersey, too blinkered, 6-2,authentic Jonathan Quick jersey, 6-2 victory. So much for the player whose sore hip had called for Yuri Geller’s powers to heal.

“If he has a problem with his hip, his relentless advances to the net had reaped handsome reward. Against a man with the quicksilver reflexes of Murray, I don’t want to play against him when his hip’s good, still smarting from the Centre Court schooling he had received. With Nadal,” Brown said, he was reduced to a blur of dreadlocks, making hit-and-hope swipes.

“Most of the guys you play,” he explained. “But here I had the feeling that it made no difference what I did. If I stayed back, you can try to find a way where you know you can hurt them, if I came in, if I chipped, if I attacked, he pretty much had an answer for everything. There was never a stage when I could relax and say, ‘Have a breather here.’ It was just constant pressure.”

When he speaks German,authentic Jaromir Jagr jersey, as befitting one born in Halle,authentic Drew Doughty jersey, Brown sounds,authentic Anze Kopitar jersey,authentic Dustin Brown jersey, it is as if he is voicing a Malibu advert. That lilting Caribbean cadence is a reflection of an adolescence spent in Montego Bay, after his Jamaican father had relocated the family there. Such an exotic upbringing has also made for an intriguing mixture in his character. Off the court,adidas Jonathan Quick jersey, pitch-perfect Westphalian. In English, he can exude an agitated Teutonic intensity. On it, he plays the kind of beach tennis that is as invigorating as a tropical breeze.

It is to Murray’s great credit that he swept past this unfamiliar roadblock with a minimum of fuss. Brown ruffled him early, with an array of exquisite lobs and drop-shots, but Murray more than had his measure by the time a double-fault gave up the first break. With a running backhand pass to seal a 3-2 lead in the second set, he reeled off 11 of the next 13 games to hare into a third round. For a figure once criticised for his temperamental weakness, Murray has evolved into a model of reliability when it matters most. Not for nine years has he allowed himself to slip to defeat prior to this stage of a slam.
Over his years with the Miami Dolphins,Authentic Sammy Watkins Jersey, Ryan Tannehill has been the only constant on the team’s offense. Depending on your view, with all of the change that has taken place around him, this is either a good thing or a bad thing. No matter though, Tannehill has had plenty of experience when it comes to knowing and evaluating those around him.

Interviewed last week about the offense this year, Ryan Tannehill openly told everyone how excited he was about the amount of talent present on the offense this year. Specifically, Tannehill sounded out the talent in the team’s receiving corps this season.

NFL Reaction: Who is the most underrated player in the NFL

“Honestly, I can say it’s definitely the most talent we’ve had with the receiving corps, having a second year together in the same offense. That’s going to be huge for us. Adding Julius Thomas and Anthony Fasano, veterans who have played a lot of football, bringing everyone back, is big.”

Tannehill has a really good point here. Bringing back Jarvis Landry,Authentic Justin Tucker Jersey, DeVante Parker,Authentic Eric Weddle Jersey, the Dolphins have one of the best if not the best receiving corps in all of the NFL. Adding Julius Thomas and Anthony Fasano to the list is like adding a cherry to the top of your milkshake. In total,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, and Kenny Stills, the passing offense this year should compete with those in the upper echelon of the NFL.

Tannehill was also happy with the status of the offensive line thanks to some movement and added talent that took place during this past offseason.

“Keeping most of the offensive line together,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, adding a few pieces. Putting Laremy Tunsil back at his natural position. That’s going to be huge for us. You start to stack all those pieces together and we have a good unit. Now it’s a matter of being able to elevate our play throughout the season.”

With the addition of Ted Larsen and Isaac Asiata to the unit, this unit must look like an All-Pro unit. If they can all keep it up though,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, Miami’s offensive line seems to once again have a solid base for this season. Given Tannehill’s past experiences with offensive lines,Womens Sammy Watkins Jersey, the best may be yet to come for the Miami Dolphins.
Rookie Solomon Thomas was unable to participate in the 49ers’ offseason program,Authentic Dont'a Hightower Jersey, but that hasn’t prevented the former Stanford star from
getting his work in.

The third-overall pick in the recent NFL draft this week worked out with Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp,Authentic James White Jersey,[url=http://www.patriotsfootballauthentic.com/dont_a-hightower-jersey-authentic]
Womens Dont'a Hightower Jersey[/url],Authentic Donald Trump Jersey,Womens Donald Trump Jersey,Authentic Derek Rivers Jersey,Womens Derek Rivers Jersey,Authentic Antonio Garcia Jersey,Womens Antonio Garcia Jersey,Womens James White Jersey, who documented it on
his Instagram account:

Sapp is the second generational star Thomas has worked out with since getting drafted. Thomas in the spring met with former Cowboys and
Broncos sack artist DeMarcus Ware. It led to Thomas changing from jersey No. 96 to 94 to honor the player eighth on the all-time sack list
with 138.5.

The 49ers are hoping Thomas becomes a player worthy of the Hall of Fame conversation like the legends he’s spent time with this offseason.
Thomas will be used as the “big” end on the strong side of the 49ers’ new 4-3 defense in base downs and likely kick inside as a pass
rusher on long-yardage situations.

Thomas wasn’t allowed to participate in San Francisco’s spring program because of an NFL rule that prohibits rookies from joining their
pro teams until their classes are no longer in session.

The 49ers have put together a promising front seven with the addition of Thomas, who joins recent first-round picks DeForest Buckner and
Arik Armstead along the defensive line. New general manager John Lynch traded back into the first round to select Alabama’s Reuben Foster
with the 31st pick after the Butkus Award winner dropped out of the top-10 due to concerns about his injured shoulder.

San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan expects Foster to be ready for the start of training in late July after being limited to individual drills
throughout the offseason program.
While Louisville is off to a good start in the 2018 class, the Cardinal coaching staff is already working towards future goals and one of those is to keep young local talent at home.

Director of High School Relations Stephen Field,Louisville's newest staff member, made clear that one of the coaching staff's goals is to target local talent.

" Field said. "We know that Coach Petrino has had great success with local talent in the past,"Coach Petrino places a high priority on keeping the top talent from Louisville and the state of Kentucky at home. It is very important to him, and we want to keep that tradition going."

Georgia and Texas,While the overall numbers of local football prospects pale in comparison to hot-beds like Florida, the top players in Louisville can typically play alongside the best of the best nationally. And local stars have always been a part of Louisville football's most-successful runs.

Greg and Jeff Brohm and Miguel Montano. Local star Chris Redman led Louisville's resurgence on the national scene with the help of local stars like Ibn Green,Louisville bowl teams of the early 1990s boasted local stars like Mark Sander,Authentic Wendell Smallwood Jersey, Rashad Holman and others.

Gator and Orange,Authentic Artie Burns Jersey, Eric Shelton and Mario Urrutia were a major key. The Cardinals have had great success throughout the years with local lineman who worked their way into being starters like George Bussey,Sean Davis Jersey, locals like Michael Bush,Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey, Brian Brohm,And on Louisville's 2004-06 bowl run of Liberty, the Leffew brothers, Alex Kupper.

In 2015, Louisville natives DeVante Parker and Jamon Brown were the top two Cardinals selected in the NFL Draft. Parker went 14th overall to the Miami Dolphins and Brown was selected in the third round by the Rams. Eastern High grad Colin Holba was the top Cardinal taken in the 2017 draft.

and Tobijah Hughley continued a Louisville tradition of unheralded local linemen who work their way into consistent starting roles like Will Rabatin,Local stars have also been key in the last couple of teams. Trinity grad James Quick had a very productive career at Louisville, George Bussey and Alex Kupper.

elite multi-position athlete Reggie Bonnafon is a Trinity grad, both of Louisville's returning kicking starters are from the Louisville area,On the current team, young receiver Keion Wakefield was one of the region's best recruits and is now a redshirt-freshman and lineman Cole Bentley enrolled early and is challenging for a starting spot. The Cardinals will have more than two dozen locals on the 2017 roster.

And the future looks bright in the local area. There are some talented local players in the 2018 class, and the 2019 class is possibly the deepest group of top-end talent in many years.

" Field said. "We know this 2019 class has great talent not only in the Louisville area,Wendell Smallwood Jersey,Artie Burns Jersey,"We are working on a project called #RedGate19 for the next class,Authentic Sean Davis Jersey,Authentic Javon Hargrave Jersey, but also out in the state of Kentucky. It's a strong class."

There is certainly going to be competition for local and state talent in both the next two classes,Javon Hargrave Jersey,Bud Dupree Jersey, but Field says the Louisville staff is working hard at winning them over.

" Field said. "We can't discuss individual recruits before they sign,"We're excited about our future, but we know there are some great prospects in our area."
As much as any NFL rookie wants to play,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey, having the opportunity to sit and learn can be invaluable for long-term development. Last season, but as he put it,Authentic Greg Olsen Jersey, defensive tackle Javon Hargrave might have hoped for a little time to transition from South Carolina State to the NFL,Thomas Davis Sr Jersey, injuries got him “thrown into that fire” and he was great.

Hargrave himself missed some time in 2016 with a concussion, but for a young man out of a small school,Greg Olsen Jersey, the team couldn’t have asked for much more. At 6-foot-1 and 305 pounds he doesn’t fit the mold of a typical 3-4 nose tackle,Authentic Thomas Davis Sr Jersey,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, but as a swing tackle who lines up more as a one-technique in sub packages this ability to penetrate is much needed.

He also better understands the level of conditioning that is expected of an NFL player. If there is one thing Coach Mike Tomlin emphasizes is maintaining a high level of conditioning and Hargrave indicated he knows better how to prepare for the rigors of training camp and a full season.

Hargrave has an opportunity to be the unit that powers the improvement in this defense over everything else. Being able to pressure quarterbacks without needing to blitz is the secret weapon this unit needs.,Walter Payton Jersey,Jordan Howard Jersey,Hargrave gives Pittsburgh a legitimate three-headed monster on the defensive line.
With training camp set for late July,Authentic Julién Davenport Jersey, the Oakland Raiders are currently working within the calm before the storm.

Camp battles will heat up come training camp,Authentic Malik Hooker Jersey, meaning players will need to approach every practice,Quincy Wilson Jersey, every rep with maximum intensity and focus on securing their spot on the 53-man roster. Both rookies and veterans will have their respective careers on the line.

To add fuel to the fire, here’s Raiders Wire’s second prediction of which defensive players will come out of camp and the preseason with a contract in hand when Oakland makes their final cuts.

The Raiders’ interior defensive line will thrive if able to prove both healthy and versatile within a constant rotation.

Three-year veteran Mario Edwards Jr. will anchor the group as Oakland’s top interior defender, both against the run and pass if he can stay on the field. Injuries have forced him to the sideline early and often in his career,Julién Davenport Jersey,Malik Hooker Jersey, a misfortune that simply can’t continue if the Raiders are to have success in the trenches.

A combination of Denico Autry,Authentic Quincy Wilson Jersey,Authentic Tarell Basham Jersey, Darius Latham,Tarell Basham Jersey, and Jihad Ward should rotate in the opposite of Edwards at defensive end. Latham should also see some snaps at defensive tackle to insert better pass rushers on passing downs.

Inside of the Raiders’ defensive ends,Authentic Marlon Mack Jersey, four-year nose tackle Justin Ellis will lead the pack as the team’s top defensive tackle with veteran Dan Williams now removed from the picture. Behind Ellis,Marlon Mack Jersey, rookies Eddie Vanderdoes and Treyvon Hester should rotate in to keep Ellis fresh throughout games.
Kendall Wright was once an up-and-coming wideout for the Tennessee Titans, but he fell out of favor with the coaching staff in recent years.

The Bears signed Wright to a one-year deal this offseason, and the former Baylor standout has impressed head coach John Fox.

primarily as a slot," Fox said,Authentic Zach Banner Jersey,"Kendall's had good production in this league,Authentic Leonard Fournette Jersey, via Bob LeGere of the Daily Herald. "He's got outstanding quickness. He's blended in pretty well with us. He's got a good feel for the game. He's had good production in our league,Cam Robinson Jersey, albeit not real recently. I like what I've seen from him."

Wright caught 64 passes in his rookie season for 626 yards with four touchdowns. The following year he had the best season of his career. In 2013 he recorded 94 catches for 1,Dawuane Smoot Jersey,079 yards and caught two touchdowns. After catching 57 passes for 715 yards with six touchdowns in 2014,A first-round pick back in 2012, Wright has struggled to make much of an impact the last two seasons.

In 2015 he appeared in 10 games and caught 36 passes for 408 yards with three touchdowns. Last season he appeared in 11 games and caught 29 passes for 416 yards with three touchdowns.

There have been questions surrounding his willingness to put in the work to be top-end wideout, but a change of scenery could help the former first-round pick.

I can get back to that,Zach Banner Jersey," he said. "(The down years) happened because of other things that people don't see,Leonard Fournette Jersey,"I feel like every year since I had that (big) year,Authentic Cam Robinson Jersey,Authentic Dawuane Smoot Jersey,Authentic Dede Westbrook Jersey, but that doesn't matter to me. When I'm playing,Dede Westbrook Jersey, I know I can be effective. I just want to be out there and be a reliable target for the quarterback. I don't really feel like I played a lot of football last year."

Wright is expected to battle Victor Cruz for reps out of the slot this season.
