Cheap Malik Jefferson Jersey
鈥?Leonard Fournette was sitting in his wrecked Mercedes-Benz on Interstate-295 earlier this week http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kerryon-johnson-jersey , waiting for the police to arrive, when he got an unusual request.One of the first responders wanted Jacksonville’s rookie running back to sign something.It wasn’t a hat, a jersey or a football, either. The man asked Fournette to autograph the damaged bumper off his 0,000 car.“The bumper was on the ground and he just came out of nowhere like, ‘Man, can you sign this for me?'” Fournette said Thursday. “I’m like, ‘You want me to sign a bumper?'”Fournette said it’s “the first and hopefully last” automotive part that garners his signature.If the former LSU star keeps playing like he did at Pittsburgh last week, there’s no telling what he’ll be asked to sign next.Fournette ran for 109 yards and three touchdowns against the Steelers despite re-injuring his right ankle in the first half. It was his most productive game in three months, a positive sign for the Jaguars (12-6) as they prepare for the AFC championship game at New England (14-3).“I feel good in spite of the ankle and stuff,” Fournette said. “Just taking care of my body, but overall I feel good.”Jacksonville’s ground game looked better than it has in weeks. The NFL’s top rushing attack stalled down the stretch , averaging 3.58 yards a carry over the final seven weeks of the regular season, and was mostly inept in a wild-card victory against Buffalo until quarterback Blake Bortles started scrambling.Fournette’s return to form couldn’t have come at a better time.“Collectively, as a group JK Scott Color Rush Jersey , I feel like everyone came to play their part,” Fournette said. “Everyone come out with it on their minds, especially from the get-go with being physical.”Fournette averaged 4.4 yards a rush against the Steelers, finding room to run outside and turning small holes between the tackles into big gains. He scored three times, using his speed to get to the corner on one and leaping over defenders and across the goal line for another.“We challenged these guys early,” offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. “Just because you have success one week doesn’t mean you’re going to have success the next. It’s just one of those things where it’s on the line, on Leonard, on the group, on Blake, all the things that were going on.“It’s about wanting to do it and understanding what you’re trying to do.”Now the Jaguars hope to have a repeat performance against the Patriots, who ranked 20th against the run this season.Fournette looked as healthy as he has since initially spraining his right ankle in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams in mid-October. Fournette ran for 130 yards in that game, which followed a season-high, 181-yard performance the week before at Pittsburgh.Fournette missed three of the next eight games because of the ankle and a bruised quadriceps muscle. And in the games he did play, instead of ripping off long runs and grinding out tough yards, Fournette was slowed to a crawl.The Jaguars were ecstatic to see him get back on track last week even though he left the game briefly to get his ankle checked out and taped up.Concerns returned Tuesday after his fender-bender.“You know what I always say about car accidents?” coach Doug Marrone said. “It’s one of those things. You can get into a car accident and feel pretty good Youth Alex McGough Jersey , (and) two days later, you wake up and I don’t know. That hasn’t happened yet. I never put that past car accidents.”Fournette was limited in practice this week, but insists he’ll be good to go for the game.His car won’t be so lucky. It’s in the shop getting repaired.“The bumper’s probably like ,000 by itself,” Fournette said. “I don’t know what insurance they have or who they’re with, but …” The Baltimore Ravens provided quarterback Joe Flacco with two new potential targets Wednesday, agreeing to terms with wide receivers Ryan Grant and John Brown on the first day of free agency.
Addressing a position that is a top priority this offseason, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome added a pair of 27-year-olds he hopes can improve a passing attack that last year ranked 27th in the NFL.
To help make room for the newcomers, Newsome freed an estimated million in salary cap space by cutting receiver Jeremy Maclin.
Grant has played in 64 games, including 15 starts, with the Washington Redskins. The 2014 fifth-round draft pick out of Tulane set career highs in 2017 with 45 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns.
Brown has played four NFL seasons, all with Arizona. Selected in the third round of the 2014 draft, Brown has 173 career catches for 2,515 yards and 17 TDs.
The contracts are pending the passing of physicals. Grant reportedly received a four-year contract and Brown agreed to a one-year pact.
The Ravens are counting on Grant to continue the improvement he showed last season. Though he has never had a 100-yard receiving game and has scored only six career touchdowns, he ranked second on the Redskins in 2017 in catches and TD receptions.
Brown’s best season was in 2015 Cheap Malik Jefferson Jersey , when he had 65 catches for 1,003 yards and seven scores.
After a season in which Baltimore’s wideouts totaled 11 touchdown receptions, the team made no secret of its desire to bolster the receiving corps.
”We will be exploring all options in free agency and in the draft for targets for Joe (Flacco),” owner Steve Bisciotti said.
That was a focus last season, too, but Maclin did not live up to expectations.
Baltimore signed Maclin as a free agent in June, hopeful the accomplished pass catcher would regain the form he showed in 2015 with Kansas City, when he had 87 catches for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns.
But Maclin missed two games with a shoulder injury, two more with knee issues, and finished with only 40 catches for 440 yards and three touchdowns.
That, along with the poor performance of 2015 first-round pick Breshad Perriman (10 catches, 77 yards, no TDs), left the Ravens looking for speed outside after finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs for a third straight season.
Mike Wallace Edwin Diaz Seattle Mariners Jersey , who had 52 catches for a team-high 748 yards in 2017, became a free agent Wednesday. It is unclear whether the Ravens will attempt to bring him back the 31-year-old, nine-year pro.
Newsome’s pursuit of top-tier free agent receivers has been hindered by a tight salary cap, which likely contributed to Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins signing with other teams.
In an effort to free up salary-cap space, Newsome earlier this week cut running back Danny Woodhead and did not pick up the option on right tackle Austin Howard.
Maclin, Woodhead and Howard were all acquired before the 2017 season.
Also on Wednesday, the Ravens extended tenders to seven exclusive-rights free agents, the most notable running back Alex Collins, the team’s leading rusher last year. The players still have to sign their tenders, but cannot negotiate with any other teams.
