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.

The RWQB academy personal training and summer camp sessions begin in mid July.
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.

Vic Beasley had a coming-out party for the Atlanta Falcons last season as he led the NFL in sacks,Authentic Montravius Adams Jersey, but could he increase his total further in Year 3?

it was easy to forget about the top-10 pick in the 2015 season.,When the Atlanta Falcons took Vic Beasley out of Clemson with the No. 8 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, they expected him to have an immediate impact as an edge rusher. Unfortunately, that wasn’t so much the case as a rookie for Beasley. In fact

he was largely just ineffective for the Falcons in his debut season. That took a stark turn for the positive in the 2016 season,In his rookie campaign, but managed a mere four sacks on the season. Given that he’s not on the field for his run defense, Beasley played in all 16 games, however.

then: Could Vic Beasley be in store for a 20-sack season?,Beasley exploded one year ago to lead the league in sacks with 15.5. Though his run defense was still lacking, his pass rushing improved dramatically and he reaped the benefits of it. Now set to enter his third year with the Falcons, the hope would be that he has another step forward to take. That begs the question

Obviously adding 4.5 more sacks to his total doesn’t seem like a huge jump, especially having jumped 11.5 from his rookie year to his second season in the league. However,[url=http://www.lionsfootballauthentic.com/michael-roberts-jersey-authentic]
Michael Roberts Jersey[/url], few players sniff that 20-sack mark with any kind of regularity in their career. So for Beasley to do so in Year 3 would be a huge feat.

With that being said,Authentic Josh Jones Jersey,Authentic Jamaal Williams Jersey, the pieces are most certainly in place to make that possible. The Falcons made a concerted effort this offseason to both deepen and improve their defense. And many of the pieces that are now in Atlanta could help pave the way to a 20-sack campaign for the third-year edge defender.

The most obvious addition in regards to Beasley is rookie Takkarist McKinley. Though he’s still recovering from shoulder surgery this offseason, the UCLA product has huge pass rushing potential. He’s fast and packs a punch with his frame, allowing him to beat tackles on the edge in a variety of ways.

Adding a player the caliber of McKinley opposite of Beasley is enormously beneficial to the 2016 NFL sack champion. Opposing offenses will now have less leeway in trying to account for Beasley on one edge as they also have to worry about the rookie opposite him. The result could be easier matchups for Beasley, thus leading to more consistent pressure.

that means more favorable looks for Beasley on the edge.,However, McKinley isn’t alone in alleviating the attention that can be paid to Beasley. The Falcons also added free-agent Dontari Poe at defensive tackle on a one-year deal. Though he had a down 2016 overall, he was still a force in terms of his pass rushing up the middle. That’s yet another pass rushing body opposing offenses will have to account for. And again

opposing quarterbacks will theoretically have to hold on to the ball longer as their pass-catchers try to get open. That means more time for Beasley to get off his blocks and put quarterbacks in the dirt.,What’s more, the Falcons also boast a young secondary that was good last season, but should be even better as they progress coming into 2017. As such

open his lanes up further,Expecting Beasley to have 20 sacks in the 2017 season would be a lofty goal. However,Authentic Michael Roberts Jersey,Authentic Kevin King Jersey, in theory,[url=http://www.packersfootballauthentic.com/kevin-king-jersey-authentic]

NEW YORK (AP) -- Max Scherzer struck out 10 over eight masterful innings to reach double digits for the fifth straight start and limited the Mets to four hits, leading the Washington Nationals over New York 7-2 on Friday night.

Matt Wieters and Michael A. Taylor hit consecutive homers starting the third inning against Steven Matz (1-1). Anthony Rendon added a two-run homer in the sixth and had three RBIs, including a run-scoring single in the eighth, Bryce Harper finished with three hits, as the Nationals improved to 5-0 at Citi Field this year.

Scherzer (8-4) won for the fourth time in five starts, starting 26 of 29 batters with strikes. He never threw more than 16 pitches in an inning until the eighth,Authentic Jarrad Davis Jersey, ending that one by fanning Yoenis Cespedes in an 11-pitch at-bat. Scherzer walked two and threw 118 pitches,Authentic Teez Tabor Jersey, his most since May 11 last year,Kenny Golladay Jersey, but got defensive help when Washington's infield turned three double plays behind him.

Jose Reyes led off the eighth with his first home run since May 1,Brad Kaaya Jersey, a drive into the right-field second deck,Authentic Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey, and pinch-hitter Curtis Granderson followed with a flyout to the warning track.

Scherzer, reached double digits in strikeouts for the eighth time this season and the 57th time in his big league career, the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner, and he allowed four hits or fewer for the 10th time in 14 starts. Jay Bruce led off the ninth against Shawn Kelley with his 18th homer.

New York, which dropped 10 1/2 games behind the NL East-leading Nationals, was starting a stretch in which it faces Stephen Strasburg on Saturday and the Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw on Monday.

Making his second start since recovering from left elbow inflammation, Matz allowed four runs and eight hits in seven innings with four strikeouts and no walks. In his return from the disabled list, he won at Atlanta last weekend.

Matz retired his first six batters - matching the most by a Mets starter this season - before Wieters sent a sinker into the center-field seats. Taylor drove an opposite-field drive over the right-field wall three pitches later, the sixth back-to-back homers for the Nationals this year.

Rendon doubled the lead in the sixth with another opposite-field drive to right, giving Harper 51 RBIs and Zimmerman 52,Jarrad Davis Jersey,Teez Tabor Jersey, his 12th home run this season and the NL-leading 103rd for the Nationals. Harper and Ryan Zimmerman hit run-scoring singles against Fernando Salas in a three-run eighth, and Rendon was walked with the bases loaded by Neil Ramirez.

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.

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.
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.''

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

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

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.
