Bad news,Womens Aaron Rodgers Jersey, NFL. They're not going away.

The Eagles are here for the long haul, and the rest of the NFC East and the NFC and the entire league is going to have to reckon with this team for the foreseeable future.

The team that just won Super Bowl LII will return largely intact in 2018. And 2019. And to a great extent,Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey, 2020 as well.

You never know exactly what the future holds, but this team is built for the long haul.

but the list of potential free agents is small. You'd love to have Trey Burton back,Womens T.Y. Hilton Jersey,They will probably lose Patrick Robinson this offseason, but that may be financially impossible. Nigel Bradham is a free agent and could walk.

isn't going anywhere until 2021 at the earliest., who is up after next year, but Corey Clement,But every offensive starter with the exception of part-time starting running back LeGarrette Blount is signed through next year and nine of them are signed through 2019. There will be decisions to make at running back with Blount and Jay Ajayi, who looks like a budding star

with only Brandon Graham unsigned for 2019. Bradham is the only defensive starter unsigned in 2018 and only Graham,The entire starting defensive line is intact through next year, Jordan Hicks and Ronald Darby are unsigned in 2019.

Let's jump into the future.

The Eagles have these guys under contract for 2020: Alshon Jeffery, Mack Hollins, Rodney McLeod, Brandon Brooks, Lane Johnson, Jason Kelce, Vinny Curry, Zach Ertz, Fletcher Cox, Malcolm Jenkins, Timmy Jernigan, Derek Barnett, Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas.

That's 2020. Three years from now!

Carson Wentz is under contract only through 2019,Womens Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, but the Eagles will take care of that at some point long before he hits free agency.

Look at the NFC East. Eli Manning is quarterbacking the Giants. He's 37 and hasn't won a playoff game since 2011. Alex Smith is quarterbacking the Redskins. He's 33 and has won one playoff game since 2012 and it was over a mediocre Texans team and he didn't even play that well. Dak Prescott is quarterbacking the Cowboys and he's never won a playoff game,Authentic Aaron Rodgers Jersey, and his decline from 2016 to 2017 certainly has to have the Cowboys wondering exactly what his future looks like.

the Eagles may have the top two quarterbacks in the division. And in Wentz and Nick Foles,Womens Andrew Luck Jersey, they have two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in their 20s. What happens there remains to be seen,Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey,Heck,Authentic Leonard Fournette Jersey, but at worst they have an elite quarterback to move forward with and another quarterback who has tremendous value as well.

Jeff Lurie and Doug Pederson have turned this into an incredibly attractive destination. Talented players are going to want to come here and be part of this special thing they've built,Womens Leonard Fournette Jersey,More than anything,Authentic Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, and the Eagles' front office can be selective in who it signs.

When the Eagles do lose valuable players, team-first mentality that Pederson was building., Corey Graham, they're in position to replace them. Joe Douglas has really solidified the talent evaluation aspect of the front office. His decision to bring Super Bowl winners into this locker room - Torrey Smith, Chris Long, Blount - really made a difference not only helping the young guys prepare for Super Bowl week but also really helping forge the unselfish

"In my mind, too. This thing can keep on rolling."," Smith said. "The team's still building. We lost a lot of players (to injury) and still won the Super Bowl. They're going to come back healthy, there's a huge window here, most of the guys who were part of this are coming back, and they're going to keep adding good players

Really, everything is in place.

a staff of first-rate teachers and a stable of talented players who want to stay here., a scouting staff with an extraordinary knack for finding players that fit in both on the field and off, a general manager who's a master at juggling salary cap and contracts,An owner willing to spend, a coach who's a brilliant motivator and play caller

that never seemed sustainable. We all knew the Donovan McNabb-Terrell Owens dynamic was a ticking time bomb. There was no way T.O. was going to have a long run with the Eagles, and without him,Thinking back to 2004, that just wasn't an elite team. A good team but not an elite team.

This feels different.

built to be sustainable,This team was built to last, built to contend for Super Bowls every year for the foreseeable future.

The Eagles haven't won playoff games in consecutive seasons since 2003 and 2004. They've had sporadic success but since those first few Andy Reid seasons, they haven't been able to sustain any measure of success.

Now they can. Now they will.

This really feels like the start of something special. Not the end.
NBCSN’s coverage of 2017-18 NHL season continues on Tuesday,adidas Gordie Howe jersey, as the St. Louis Blues host the Minnesota Wild at 8:00 p.m. ET. You can watch the game online by clicking here.

The Wild currently own the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference. That’s pretty impressive considering how difficult things have been for them away from home. Heading into tonight’s tilt in St. Louis,Authentic Jimmy Howard jersey, they own a 10-15-1 record away from Xcel Energy Center.

Of all the teams currently in the postseason, only the Pittsburgh Penguins have as poor of a record (10-5-2) on the road this season.

To make matters worse, they’re coming off an ugly 6-1 loss in Dallas on Saturday night.

“We definitely change how we play when we get down like that on the road,” goalie Devan Dubnyk said,adidas Frans Nielsen jersey, per the Minneapolis StarTribune. “Obviously,Authentic Frans Nielsen jersey, when you have confidence like we do at home, you just feel like you’re going to win every game so you don’t really think otherwise. That’s obviously not the case on the road right now. That’s when it becomes that much more important to just really focus and concentrate on being simple and playing our game.”

The last couple of weeks have gone relatively well for the Blues, as they’ve managed to rattle off six victories in their last eight games (they had a disappointing loss to Arizona during that stretch).

Goalie Carter Hutton has been a big reason for the Blues’ recent run of success. Hutton, who has been between the pipes for each of St. Louis’ last six wins,Authentic Gordie Howe jersey, has overtaken Jake Allen as the team’s starter.

“This is not one or two weeks that he’s been playing well — he’s been playing at this level all season long,adidas Henrik Zetterberg jersey,” head coach Mike Yeo said of Hutton’s success,adidas Jimmy Howard jersey, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “So I think it would be very unfair to him to not give him that credit. And you have to say, they all have a different timeline of when they reach their potential, maybe it is. He’s played behind some very good goaltenders. They all develop at a different rate, when they reach their peak. And obviously,Authentic Henrik Zetterberg jersey, I don’t think any of us should see any reason why we shouldn’t give him that belief.”

The 32-year-old has a 14-4-1 record with a 1.61 goals-against-average and a .947 save percentage in 2017-18.

The Blues currently sit in third spot in the Central Division,adidas Wayne Gretzky jersey, but they’re just one point clear of Dallas,Authentic Wayne Gretzky jersey, who is in the first Wild Card spot and six points clear of Minnesota, who has two games in hand.
In the days before the Super Bowl, there were rumors that Josh McDaniels to the Indianapolis Colts didn’t seem like a sure thing. Maybe he was having cold feet.

In the end McDaniels did have cold feet and decided to not take the Colts job … after he apparently accepted it.

hours after the team had announced he agreed to terms to be their head coach. McDaniels is headed back to the New England Patriots as their offensive coordinator,In one of the wildest stories of this or any other NFL offseason, McDaniels pulled out of the Colts job on Tuesday, and presumably to have the chance to be the heir apparent to Bill Belichick. The story was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

said Belichick being in place as head coach for 2018 and stability for his family were factors in his return. ESPN said he had told the Colts throughout the process he wanted time to mull the decision with his family,Schefter said Patriots owner Robert Kraft was talking to McDaniels over the last 48 hours and ended up “sweetening his contract” for him to return as offensive coordinator. Another report from ESPN, by Mike Reiss,Womens John Ross Jersey, and ultimately decided against taking the job.

whenever that is. McDaniels will be just 42 next season and can wait out Belichick,Womens A.J. Green Jersey,The Belichick part of the story is interesting. Because from the outside looking in,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, it would appear that Belichick’s future had to play into McDaniels’ decision. McDaniels was terrible as Denver’s head coach, but presumably he’ll retire before McDaniels hits age 50.,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey, and after leaving the Colts at the altar it’s hard to believe he’d get another head coaching job outside of New England. But he would seem to be a good bet to get the Patriots job once Belichick is finished, who will turn 66 this offseason. Nobody knows how long Belichick will coach

but it was in his contract that he would take over the head coaching job from Bill Parcells. Parcells resigned suddenly to keep Belichick,The immediate comparison in NFL history is actually to Belichick, who resigned as New York Jets head coach the day after getting it. Back then Belichick was a defensive coordinator who was pursued by the Patriots, and Belichick resigned rather than becoming the Jets’ head coach. Belichick ended up in New England after the Patriots gave draft pick compensation to the Jets.

This is different because McDaniels was free to leave, when all the other openings are filled, and for weeks it appeared he would. It was reported that he would take the job,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey, though it couldn’t be official until after the Super Bowl because the Patriots were still alive in the playoffs. This episode could lead to a rule change,Authentic John Ross Jersey, since teams don’t want to wait out a candidate unitl after the Super Bowl,Womens DeShone Kizer Jersey, the Colts were put in a truly terrible spot when McDaniels backed out. The Colts announced McDaniels agreed to terms and announced a news conference for Wednesday,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, then get unexpectedly turned down. Make no mistake, but McDaniels hadn’t signed a contract yet.

We are excited to welcome Josh McDaniels,Womens Jim Brown Jersey, who has agreed to terms as our new head coach!

Press conference scheduled for Wednesday. pic.twitter.com/FIzhqIf2y4

— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) February 6,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, 2018

Now the Colts have to start over with their coaching search. They thought they had their new head coach, but McDaniels and the Patriots had other ideas.

who was a revelation at quarterback following a trade in October from the New England Patriots.,Lynch said during the Senior Bowl that the 49ers were doing everything possible to lock up Garoppolo

"When you find the right guy at that position, it's really good for your franchise," Lynch said. "We believe we've found the right guy. Now the challenge is getting Jimmy signed. We're working hard towards that. We'll see. I think he wants to be with us and we want him there. I think it makes too much sense not to happen. So it's just a matter of getting it done."

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. hopes to work out an extension this offseason and ensure his future with the team that drafted him 12th overall in 2014.,--Entering the final year of his rookie contract

"It's too much sitting around thinking,Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey, 'Where am I going to be at?' I need to know where I can start buying furniture for a house. I want to have a place set where I know,Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey, 'OK,Womens Stefon Diggs Jersey, this is home. I can always go back to home.'

Teams can utilize the franchise tag from Feb. 20 through March 6.

Cousins could not be traded unless he signs the franchise tender, which would be worth $34.5 million for the 2018 season. Cousins could also undo pending trades by telling suitors he will not sign a long-term extension,Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey, lessening the desire of any interested team to part with draft picks or other players via trade.

NEW YORK -- The New York Islanders stemmed a crisis and steadied their Eastern Conference playoff positioning with a narrow win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

The Islanders' reward? A date with one of the hottest teams in the NHL.

The Islanders will look to win their second straight game Monday night when they host the red-hot Nashville Predators at Barclays Center.

The Islanders stopped a two-game losing streak when they came back from two one-goal deficits to edge the visiting Blue Jackets 4-3.

The host Predators won their second straight -- and for the eighth time in 10 games -- on Saturday with a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers.

The Islanders (26-22-5) escaped a tie for last place in the Metropolitan Division with the Rangers and moved into a deadlock for the final wild-card spot in the East with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Suffice to say, the Islanders felt a little better than they did after being outscored 9-1 in losses to the Florida Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs earlier in the week.

a huge two points,"A huge win," Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak told reporters after he had 46 saves. "We just found a way to get the two points. That's really a huge booster for our team after those two losses."

are idle Monday,Authentic Juuse Saros jersey, the latter of whom occupies the top wild-card spot,Authentic Viktor Arvidsson jersey,Another win Monday and the Islanders will feel even better about themselves. Both the Flyers and Blue Jackets,adidas Jaroslav Halak jersey, so New York can move into the first wild card with a victory.

provided themselves a boost in the last two games, meanwhile,The Predators (31-12-7), outscoring the Rangers and Los Angeles Kings 10-2.

pretty consistent,"I thought for 120 minutes it was pretty good,adidas Juuse Saros jersey," Predators coach Peter Laviolette told reporters after Saturday's game. "The guys were playing hard. We rolled the lines and rolled the D and had good goaltending."

The Predators' 8-1-1 record in their last 10 games is tied with the Boston Bruins for the best mark during that span.

will enter Monday in second place in the Central Division,Authentic Jordan Eberle jersey, which has outscored the opposition 31-17 in that 10-game stretch,adidas Viktor Arvidsson jersey,Nashville,adidas Jordan Eberle jersey, two points behind the Winnipeg Jets.

Halak is likely to oppose the Predators' Pekka Rinne in a battle of top net-minders. Rinne posted the win Saturday with 20 saves against the Rangers.

Halak is 14-3-4 in 22 regular-season appearances against the Predators. Rinne is 4-3-2 in nine games against the Islanders.

Neither team is likely to be 100 percent Monday.

Predators left winger Filip Forsberg was suspended three games by the NHL on Sunday for his late high hit on Rangers left winger Jimmy Vesey.

The Islanders are expected to once again be without defenseman Johnny Boychuk,Authentic Jaroslav Halak jersey, who has missed the last 16 games but has resumed skating with the team.
The New England Patriots only lost three times during the regular season. Their last defeat was against Miami Dolphins on Dec. 11,Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey, 27-20.

Since then,Womens Joey Bosa Jersey, including playoff victories against the Tennessee Titans and the Jacksonville Jaguars en route to their 10th Super Bowl appearance.,Womens Dan Fouts Jersey, the Patriots have won their last five games

What can the Philadelphia Eagles, take away from the Dolphins win back in December?,[url=http://www.vikingsfootballauthentic.com/dalvin-cook-jersey-authentic
]Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey[/url], their Super Bowl opponent

One thing to know about the Patriots is they led the league in first downs during the regular season with 389. The Eagles have to be able to force the Patriots into third-and-long situations. If the Eagles are able to get a lot of three-and-outs early on, that will keep their defense fresh for the second half when the Patriots are usually at their best.

Tom Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback of all time,Authentic Melvin Ingram Jersey, but he struggled against the Dolphins. Brady was 24-for-43 as he threw for 233 yards, two interceptions as he finished the night with a passer rating of 59.5., one touchdown

Despite having only two sacks on the night,Womens Allen Robinson Jersey, the Dolphins defensive line was constantly in Brady’s the entire game. Eagles will need to create pressure with their defensive line because Brady is great at seeing and exploiting teams when they blitz often.

Second-year corner Xavien Howard played the best game of his career against the Patriots as he recorded two interceptions against Brady. While the Patriots have many receivers who can make plays,Authentic Joey Bosa Jersey, the key for the Eagles will be to limit Brandin Cooks and Rob Gronkowski’s production.

Another factor that was key to the Dolphins’ upset over the Patriots was running back Kenyan Drake. In that game,Womens Dalvin Cook Jersey, Drake rushed for 114 yards. Drake also led the Dolphins in receiving yards as he had 79 on the night along with five receptions.

Dolphins did a good job mixing in quick passes,Womens Melvin Ingram Jersey, and their receivers were able to break tackles to keep the chains moving.

In the end, the Dolphins won the time of possession battle by having the ball nearly 13 more minutes than the Patriots. They also had more first downs (21 to 14). The Eagles will need to keep the Patriots off the field by establishing their ground game early.

Although virtually no one is giving the Eagles a chance on Sunday, no one thought the Dolphins,Authentic Dan Fouts Jersey, the Eagles can defeat the Patriots if they studied some of the things the Dolphins did back in December., who were 11-point underdogs at home, would beat the Patriots almost two months ago. While the task will be tough

General manager John Lynch made it clear the San Francisco 49ers did not want Jimmy Garoppolo to get away. Now he's putting the franchise's money behind that statement.

Don Yee,NFL Network reported Sunday the 49ers and Garoppolo's agent,Authentic Cam Newton Jersey, are progressing toward a multi-year deal. The contract is likely to be worth well over $100 million.

Lynch said during the Senior Bowl that the 49ers were doing everything possible to lock up Garoppolo,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey, who was a revelation at quarterback following a trade in October from the New England Patriots.

it's really good for your franchise,Womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,"When you find the right guy at that position,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey," Lynch said. "We believe we've found the right guy. Now the challenge is getting Jimmy signed. We're working hard towards that. We'll see. I think he wants to be with us and we want him there. I think it makes too much sense not to happen. So it's just a matter of getting it done."

--Entering the final year of his rookie contract, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. hopes to work out an extension this offseason and ensure his future with the team that drafted him 12th overall in 2014.

BLOOMINGTON,Womens Michael Thomas Jersey, Minn. (AP) — Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared from the concussion protocol and will play in Sunday's Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Gronkowski participated fully in practice on Thursday. Defensive lineman Deatrich Wise also practiced after being cleared from the concussion protocol. Malcolm Butler (illness) and Brandon King (knee) also participated in the workout.

Gronk said he is "ready to roll" and has no limitations. He had been sidelined since taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jacksonville's Barry Church in the first half of New England's AFC championship game win.

The All-Pro tight end missed last year's Super Bowl win over Atlanta after undergoing back surgery.

Gronkowski said he believes that the team doctors were just using the bye week to be as cautious with the injury as possible.

"We knew the whole time I was gonna be good to go,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey," he said. "I was progressing really good throughout the week. We just knew I'd be ready and we've been practicing like we always do."

Gronkowski led the team in receiving during the regular season with 69 catches for 1,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey,084 yards and eight touchdowns.

His return gives quarterback Tom Brady another key option against an Eagles defense that finished the regular season ranked fourth in the NFL in defense.

Philadelphia is giving up 229 yards per game through the air in the playoffs. New England comes in averaging 318 yards passing during the postseason.

"He's a dynamic player. He means a ton to our offense. He really has since he got to our team. It's always great when he's out there," Brady said.

In addition to Gronk's return to practice,Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, the Patriots also got a visit from former defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, who won Super Bowls with New England during the 2004 and 2014 seasons.

Gronkowski said it was always nice to have "a great teammate" such as Wilfork around, but declined to say what words of motivation he offered the team.

In games 48, and 50 of the regular season,adidas Frans Nielsen jersey, 49, the Sharks began to answer the biggest ‘what if' in franchise history.

What if they had neither Patrick Marleau nor Joe Thornton in the lineup?

Wednesday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Detroit Red Wings was just the third time since Jan. 21, of course, famously left for greener pastures with the Toronto Maple Leafs this summer, 2004 that San Jose played a game without Thornton and Marleau. Marleau, while his fellow ex-Sharks captain reportedly almost joined him.

That's according to The Athletic's Kevin Kurz, the Sharks have gotten a small glimpse, over the last three games, who wrote in January that Thornton "was closer to signing with Toronto last summer than many people realize." Due to Thornton's right MCL injury, of what that would have looked like.

It hasn't been all bad. On one hand, controlling 52.07 percent of the shot attempts and 52.21 percent of the unblocked shot attempts, San Jose has won the five-on-five possession battle,Authentic Gordie Howe jersey, according to Natural Stat Trick.

They've also only scored 0.06 fewer goals per 60 minutes of five-on-five play (2.05) compared to when Thornton was playing (2.11). That's still not all that productive, but not nearly a big enough drop to sound any alarms.

On the other,adidas Wayne Gretzky jersey, the Sharks are just 0-2-1 in those three games. They've been outscored 12-8 in regulation and overtime,adidas Henrik Zetterberg jersey, and their once-smoldering power play has only converted on one of its last eight opportunities without Thornton.

Plus, which was already a major concern,Authentic Frans Nielsen jersey, their defensive play, has remained largely subpar. San Jose has still allowed far too many high-danger chances (12.32 per 60 minutes of five-on-five play) over the last three games.

Goaltender Martin Jones bailed the defense out on Wednesday,adidas Jimmy Howard jersey, posting a save percentage (.977) above .920 for just the fifth time in his last 16 appearances. The Sharks can reasonably expect him to be better than he has since December, but routinely relying on 40-plus saves isn't exactly

a recipe for success.

Three games sans Thornton are not nearly enough to draw any meaningful conclusions, Authentic Henrik Zetterberg jersey,and aren't scoring much without him,Authentic Jimmy Howard jersey, but some are beginning to become apparent. San Jose wasn't scoring all that much with him, particularly on the power play.

There's undoubtedly a hole atop the roster, though,adidas Gordie Howe jersey, perhaps two with Marleau also gone. As long as the Sharks' poor defensive play continues to overshadow Thornton's injury,Authentic Wayne Gretzky jersey, answering ‘what if' will have to wait.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- In her bid for governor of Tennessee, Republican Rep. Diane Black will run an ad during the Super Bowl pregame show saying ''it's too bad that the league doesn't respect the patriotism of our national anthem.''

Black's campaign spokesman, Chris Hartline,000. Some will see it right before kickoff, said Thursday that the ad urging fans to stand will run on one network in several Tennessee markets at a cost of more than $50, he said.

It's a response to the NFL's refusal to run an ad from the group American Veterans saying ''Please Stand'' in the printed Super Bowl program.

but NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the game program is not the place for messages that could be seen as political. McCarthy noted that the NFL approved a Veterans of Foreign Wars ad saying ''We Stand for Veterans.'',Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey,The league has been roiled by debate over players kneeling during the anthem to protest social injustice

In her spot,Authentic Joey Bosa Jersey, Black says that though the NFL refused the AMVETS ad urging everyone to stand,Authentic Dan Fouts Jersey, ''they can't stop you and me.''

''So tonight,Authentic Melvin Ingram Jersey, wherever you are watching this game,Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey, please stand for 'The Star-Spangled Banner' and join me in standing up for veterans,'' Black, a Gallatin lawmaker, said in the ad.

a call that has particularly rallied the Republican base. President Donald Trump mentioned it in his State of the Union speech.,She's not the only Republican candidate in Tennessee to use ad time to voice support for standing for the anthem

Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who is running to replace retiring Republican Sen. Bob Corker, bought radio time for an ad that says she stands ''for veterans, the president and 'The Star-Spangled Banner.'''

BLOOMINGTON,Womens Cam Newton Jersey, Minn. (AP) — Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared from the concussion protocol and will play in Sunday's Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Gronkowski participated fully in practice on Thursday. Defensive lineman Deatrich Wise also practiced after being cleared from the concussion protocol. Malcolm Butler (illness) and Brandon King (knee) also participated in the workout.

Gronk said he is "ready to roll" and has no limitations. He had been sidelined since taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jacksonville's Barry Church in the first half of New England's AFC championship game win.

The All-Pro tight end missed last year's Super Bowl win over Atlanta after undergoing back surgery.

Gronkowski said he believes that the team doctors were just using the bye week to be as cautious with the injury as possible.

"We knew the whole time I was gonna be good to go,Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey," he said. "I was progressing really good throughout the week. We just knew I'd be ready and we've been practicing like we always do."

Gronkowski led the team in receiving during the regular season with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.

His return gives quarterback Tom Brady another key option against an Eagles defense that finished the regular season ranked fourth in the NFL in defense.

Philadelphia is giving up 229 yards per game through the air in the playoffs. New England comes in averaging 318 yards passing during the postseason.

"He's a dynamic player. He means a ton to our offense. He really has since he got to our team. It's always great when he's out there,Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey," Brady said.

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Chris Long grew up a child of means.

His father, Howie, is a Hall of Fame defensive lineman and longtime television analyst. NFL players then certainly didn’t make what NFL players do now – Howie made $37,000 as
a rookie with the Los Angeles Raiders in 1981, but at in announcing his retirement 13 years later said he’d made more money than he’d ever dreamed – but he made enough to
provide a comfortable material life for his family.

Chris is quick to acknowledge that where he grew up, it was a given that every kid in the neighborhood would go to college, and that he took for granted the benefits of going to
a private school like St. Anne’s-Belfield in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Long, who is white, has had many privileges afforded to him, both tangible and intangible.

As his fellow NFL players, the ones that don’t look like him and don’t have many of those privileges became more outspoken about the injustices and inequities plaguing many of
our systems and communities, Long heard them.

And, more important, he joined them.

Initially, that meant Long laying a supportive hand on the shoulder of his Philadelphia Eagles teammate Malcolm Jenkins when he raised a fist during the national anthem.

“The conversation about race in America, it’s tough for people to get involved in,” Jenkins said on Monday at Super Bowl Opening Night. “I think a lot of people were
struggling with how to support and how to do it in a way that was genuine to them. And Chris wasn’t passionate enough to feel like he needed to take a knee or raise a fist,Womens Harrison Smith Jersey, but
he wanted to support in a way that was natural to him,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey, and all it took was for him to put his arm around us, and that message was huge to a lot of people who were watching[who
saw], ‘OK,Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey, I can support you in a way that I believe in. We don’t have to agree on everything, but we can work together.’”

And then Long became an involved part of the Players’ Coalition, the group of current and former NFL players formed in recent months to advance the conversation started by
Colin Kaepernick and which has been successful in getting even team owners to listen to their concerns. The coalition counts among its members just two white men: Long and
quarterback Josh McCown.

When it’s noted that Long is,Womens Brandin Cooks Jersey, well, in the minority in the group, he says he believes that other white players do care, but they might be unsure how to get into the
conversation, or maybe something like their contract or status is holding them back. Long has been in the NFL for a decade, and accomplished a lot; he can take the risk on his
advocacy possibly affecting his future NFL employment.

But he firmly rejects the notion, set forth by some on social media, that it’s not his fight.

“That’s the point: I had every opportunity, why wouldn’t I want other people to have that opportunity? Especially when I didn’t fully appreciate it,” Long said. “These
guys are my best friends, guys that I’ve played with for 10 years in the league, they’re like family to me and we didn’t all come from the same neighborhood. And I can
perfectly accept that I might love America but certain teammates might have looked at America through a different lens for most of their life so why is that so hard to just, let
’s figure it out a little bit.”

Like many, Long loves the country where he was born, but knows that doesn’t mean it can’t be better.

“I really do believe we live in the best country in the world, and I hate to use this cliché/metaphor, but if you’re on the best team in the world, you don’t stop practicing,
” he said. “We’ve got things we need to improve and guys really care about their communities.

“People always point this out: we’re millionaires, we play a sport for a living, this stuff doesn’t affect us in a lot of ways. Well, one, that’s not true for some of my
teammates, and two, wouldn’t you want us to care about people less fortunate and fix things that don’t affect us? That’s what guys are trying to do.”

Though he loves this country, Long said earlier Monday that he would again skip the traditional White House visit if the Eagles win on Sunday and are invited; he did not go last
year as a member of the Patriots, saying it was the right thing not to go.

On Monday evening he demurred, saying he didn’t want to get into it, and that he had given an answer to a situation that right now is hypothetical.

“We have a whole week to prepare for the Patriots and hopefully you’ll be asking me this question in a week. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it,” Long said.

Before this season, Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey,his 10th in the NFL and his first with the Eagles, Long was debating whether he wanted to put himself through the rigors of another year. He thought maybe he
’d do something to make the season special,Womens Drew Brees Jersey, came up with the idea of donating much of his salary,Womens Sam Bradford Jersey, but then put the idea to the side.

Until Aug. 11-12, when hate and madness and, unfortunately,Womens Stefon Diggs Jersey, death,Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey, came to his hometown of Charlottesville in the form of a white nationalism rally and counter-protests.

Seeing his city suffer spurred Long to follow through with his idea, and he ended up donating all of his salary this season to different charities. His final 10 games checks
went toward educational equality groups in the three cities where he’s played – St. Louis,Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey, Boston and Philadelphia. And once he announced what he was doing, fans joined in,
doubling Long’s donation.

After Charlottesville, “I was like, well I have to be the walk the walk guy in my own way.” Long saw the chance to not just donate his money, but perhaps be able to give more
with fan involvement, and that’s what happened.

Doing the right thing and trying to help others is never wrong. But coming from a man like Long, who was born into a life and a situation not many do, makes his commitment even
more meaningful.

“All of the things that Chris is talking about and fighting for, don’t even affect him, and won’t affect his kids,” Jenkins said. “But he sees it as wrong, and he sees it
as affecting people, the community that supports him, the community he lives in, cheers for him, and he wants to be part of the solution for equality’s sake, for justice’s
sake, and I think that’s a pure place to come from.”
Tom Brady was down to one glove on Tuesday,Authentic John Ross Jersey, but the New England Patriots quarterback acknowledged that his right hand is "not where I want it to be" five days before Super Bowl
LII.

Brady required 12 stitches after suffering a cut on his throwing hand in practice leading up to the AFC Championship Game two weeks ago. He has been coy about the injury since,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey,

rounder to move up 17 spots and grab Mahomes 10th overall in April.

--Washington Redskins quarterback and pending free agent Kirk Cousins will be looking for a payday this spring, but the opportunity to win will also be a major factor in his
decision-making process.

"Is money a part of it? Sure. Is it the only thing? No," Cousins said Tuesday on "PFT Live." "It is about winning, so I'm going to be
, and that's what I want more than anything

willing to make sacrifices or do what has to be done to make sure I'm in the best possible position to win, and that's what the focus is going to be."

Washington used the franchise tag on Cousins each of the last two offseasons and could do so again, although it would come at a hefty price tag of $34 million this time around.
He was content to play on the tag each of the last two seasons and said Tuesday "there's no need to change the script" in how he approaches the situation this time around.
