Redskins keep looking for help along defensive line


The Washington Redskins’ quest to improve their defensive line continues. Now they just need to find pieces to make it work, something they have yet to do less than a week into free agency.

The Redskins already have hosted Muhammad Wilkerson (signed with Green Bay instead) and Johnathan Hankins (left without a deal).official nfl jerseys cheap They will host nose tackle Sylvester Williams on Tuesday. There’s still interest in free agent Bennie Logan, though no visit is planned.

It’s been no surprise that Washington wants to improve its defensive line, as much to generate more consistent push from the interior as to stop the run. They’re telling those who are visiting how much they want help up front. But stopping the run also must be done with other spots so just signing one good defensive lineman won’t matter if the corners don’t support it the right way or if the linebackers fill the wrong gaps.

The Miami Dolphins were never a top-10 run defense even after adding Ndamukong Suh, the top free agent in 2015. The Dolphins went from 24th in rushing yards per game before his arrival to 28th; and from 21st to 14th in yards per carry. It takes more than adding one player.

However, it’s a necessary part and if they can sign a guy like Hankins, it affords them flexibility. If they added Williams, I’d still look at drafting another lineman — Vita Vea (who belongs in the top 10) or Da’Ron Payne.

They could then cut Terrell McClain, thanks to a recent move that makes it affordable. His base salary of $3.25 million was set to become guaranteed on the fifth day of the league year. It had only been guaranteed for injury only. But the language of the contract was changed to keep it as guaranteed for injury only.

That means Washington could release McClain and, thanks to the prorated signing bonus, reebok nfl jerseys be on the hook for “only” $3.75 million in dead cap space. Releasing him after June 1 would spread that out over two years. Otherwise, if he’s kept, he’ll have a cap hit of $4.67 million this season and $5.75 million next season. His play needs to improve in order to justify those numbers.

Jose Altuve finalizes 7-year, $163.5M deal with Astros

The 27-year-old second baseman had been among baseball’s best bargains. He agreed in 2013 to a deal that originally guaranteed $12.5 million from 2014 to 2017 and included club options for 2018 at $6 million and 2019 at $6.5 million.

His new deal keeps those salaries and adds a $21 million signing bonus,cheap nfl football jersey of which $1 million is payable upon the deal’s approval by the commissioner’s office and $10 million each on July 1 in 2018 and 2019. He gets annual salaries of $26 million from 2020 to 2024.105

“This a very important day for me,” he said. “It was a priority because that way it doesn’t take attention from the season.”

Altuve would have been eligible for free agency after the 2019 season. The 5-foot-6 Altuve hit .346 last season to win his second straight AL batting title and third in four seasons. He had 24 homers, 82 RBIs and 32 stolen bases.

“There’s some stability that comes with writing Jose’s name in the lineup every single day,” manager A.J. Hinch said, “and to think that he’s going to be the franchise player for years to come is good for him, it’s good for the organization, it’s obviously good for me as a manager and most importantly is good for his teammates because he’s the most reliable player I’ve ever been around.”

After winning its first World Series title, Houston also hopes to reach more long-term deals.nike football nfl jerseys Pitcher Dallas Keuchel and designated hitter Evan Gattis are eligible for free agency after this season.

Houston added pitcher Justin Verlander for its stretch run last fall and Gerrit Cole in a trade during the offseason.

“We’d love to keep all the guys I’m looking at here for their entire careers,” general manager Jeff Luhnow said. “Jim is committed to keeping the best team on the field for as long as possible and giving us a chance to win multiple championships, and part of that is developing our own players and keeping our own players and bringing in the right types of players. And we’ve done that. We’ll see what the future holds but we certainly have a desire and an intention to keep our core together as long as possible.”

Sleeper bats for deeper leagues

At this time last season, fantasy managers were not thinking much about third basemen Brian Anderson and Colin Moran and, truth be told, they’re not likely thinking about them now. Anderson will start for the Miami Marlins and, leaving aside how people might view that franchise, they will still play 162 games and accrue plenty of statistics. Moran played a bit for the World Series champion Houston Astros last season,official nfl jerseys cheap but now he is a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates. He is going to start at third base, and that matters in deep leagues, in which many of you will be participating.

Third base seems to be the position on the field where more than a few of my favorite deeper league options will perform at, or are eligible at, and Anderson and Moran lead the crew. After all, one of the things I look for in a young player — not necessarily a top prospect, by the way — is plate discipline in combination with power. Anderson and Moran both have it. They can draw a walk as well as hit a baseball over a fence, and an opportunity has arrived for each to emerge in 2018. Because they do not boast the “big name” that many prospects do, few will be looking in the respective directions of either in 10- or 12-team mixed drafts, but in NL-only, absolutely!


So let us check out some players that should have value for the deeper mixed leagues or the single-league formats, because we know that many of you compete in these environments. A week ago, I detailed my LABR-NL 12-team auction and a name or two might be repeated here, of course. Soon I will take part in a 20-teamer on ESPN.

For those like me competing in NFBC leagues reebok nfl jerseys— that was a fun draft — this information should help as those consist of 15 teams with 50 players each, for a total of 750 players. Using ESPN ADP is not going to help much after 15 rounds there, so the players below will have an average pick of 260, meaning they are generally not being chosen in standard leagues. So here we go with the hitters, and the pitchers will be highlighted another day.

Jimmy Graham needs Jordy Nelson-like connection with Aaron Rodgers

The two moves may have occurred independent of each other, but the Green Bay Packers’ decision to sign tight end Jimmy Graham and cut receiver Jordy Nelson will forever be linked.

It’s a good bet that the Packers would have moved on from Nelson whether or not they pursued — and eventually came to an agreement with — Graham on Tuesday.

There are those who believe cheap nfl jerseys from china Nelson still had something left in the tank. Thus, the 2018 season will be a comparison of what Graham does for the Packers’ offense to what Nelson could have given them.

It was that kind of emotional swing on Tuesday afternoon. One minute, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Packers would sign Graham, perhaps the top free-agent tight end. Fourteen minutes later, he reported that the Packers would cut Nelson.43

Any hope that the Packers might bring back Nelson at a lower cost than his $10.25 million scheduled pay for 2018 should have been dashed when new general manager Brian Gutekunst essentially said the next time they see Nelson will be at his “eventual induction into the Packers Hall of Fame.”

In Nelson, the Packers moved on from one of their all-time best receivers; he ranks third in team history in catches (550), fifth in receiving yards (7,848) and second in touchdowns (69). His chemistry with Rodgers was unmatched. Together, they hooked up for 65 touchdowns, breaking Brett Favre and Antonio Freeman’s club record of 58.

Nelson wasn’t the fastest receiver ever to put on a Packers uniform, nor was he the best route runner. But his body control may have been better than anyone who has ever caught passes in Green Bay. His work on the sideline was superb.cheap nfl nike jerseys china The way he snapped around to catch back-shoulder passes from Rodgers was unmatched. During the 2014 season, he explained, in part, how he did so for an ESPN story.

With Graham, the Packers will try to replicate what they got from the tight end position in 2016, when Jared Cook played such an immense role in the “run-the-table” winning streak that turned the Packers from a 4-6 team to one that lost in the NFC Championship Game.

Von Miller keeps pushing for Broncos to sign Kirk Cousins

With free agency three days away, the best defensive player in Denver keeps politicking for the team to sign one of the best available veteran quarterbacks. Von Miller wants Kirk Cousins to come to town.

“I’m all in 100 percent,” Miller told James Palmer of NFL Media. “This is a big time for cheap custom nfl jerseys Denver and a big time for the National Football League. You don’t really have, especially quarterbacks, become free like that. So it’s an exciting time in the National Football League.”

Cousins is the first healthy franchise quarterback under the age of 30 to become an unrestricted free agent. The class of free agents also includes several other potentially attractive options at the quarterback position.gettyimages-898096986-e1520785590123

“It’s kind of like college again,” Miller said. “You got an athlete coming to your school and you want to try your best to get them there. And that’s the same thing with us. cheap customized nfl jerseys We would really like to have Kirk. I think him and his personality and the things that he brings to the table fits in with Denver. But there are a lot of great teams out there with large pocket books. So we’ll have to just wait and see. But I’ll have to give him the ultimate spiel on why Denver is special to me.”

Miller realizes that, even his spiel and Denver’s money may not be enough. Which means that the Broncos will need to have one or more fallback plans in place.

“You always have your plan B and C,” Miller said. “We have great direction with the Denver Broncos — I said it 50 million times. [G.M. John] Elway is as good as it gets. cheap nfl custom jerseys Whatever [direction] he takes this organization in I’m with him. We’re tied to the hip forever. Whatever direction he takes the organization I’m with him 100 percent.”

Here’s an interesting direction that Miller may not like, but it would get Miller and Cousins on the same team. A reader recently suggested a trade between the Rams and Broncos, with Miller going to L.A., quarterback Jared Goff going to Denver, and the Rams then signing Cousins, reuniting him with coach Sean McVay. That would be a crazy outcome, but given the craziness of the last few days, how crazy would it really be?

On Monday’s PFT Live, we may be spending some time discussing some potentially nike nfl jerseys cheap crazy trades that could happen. Feel free to suggest some that we could steal use nfl jerseys cheap nike below.
