Texans rejection letter shows Tramon Wil
Posted On 11/20/2017 22:55:32

Getting cut must hurt, especially when you know you can do the job. There's probably nothing sweeter, though, than Logan Thomas Jersey showing up the team that thought you weren't worth it.That's what Tramon Williams did on Twitter when he shared the form letter he received in 2006 from the Texans. An undrafted free agent from Louisiana Tech, Williams was shown the door with adry,cold document.MORE: Jarrett Boykin explains what went wrong in Green Bay | Super Bowl prediction#tbt 9 years later.. Best thing I ever did was believe in my own ability! pic.twitter.com/DksKtlREUP Tramon Williams Sr. (@HighRizer22) June 4, 2015A current NFL agent told Deadspin that letters today are "pretty much the same."I suppose holding on to such rejection is a personal choice. Clearly, Williams Josh Malone Jersey used it as motivation. It's also pretty obvious he was right and they were wrong.Since 2007 with the Packers, Williams has mi sed only one game. How many defensive backs can say that? At 32, he signed a three-year contrat with the Browns last month. Just last season in Green Bay, Terrance West Jersey he tied for the team lead with three interceptions. His 22 picks since 2010 is second in only to Seattle's Richard Sherman.According to ESPN.com, he made $7. Hauoli Kikaha Jersey 5 million last season, which was the final year of a four-year, $33 million contract extension signed in 2010. Now, he's planning on production in Cleveland where he joins Joe Haden and Donte Whitner in the secondary.We'd also like to add that Williams easily has the best personal website of any player in the NFL.

Best assembly of quarterbacks ever A Pac
Posted On 11/20/2017 22:54:16

Throughout my 12-year NFL career, Ive been fortunate to hear my name, or my former teams', in the middle of debates focusing on who was the best in a particular area of football.For years, people have debated whether the "Greatest Show On Turf"was the best offense the NFL has ever seen, and Ive heard my name mentioned in regards to having the best individual season by a quarterback in 1999, I won MVP, Super Bowl MVP and the Lombardi Trophy.WARNER: Toughest job as QB? Sitting behind franchise player | Draft succe s isn't about Taywan Taylor Jersey No. 1Ive also wondered whether the talent a sembled on my team in St. Louis was the best on any particular team over the last three decades, if not ever. Some have also mentioned my name in arguing the best big-game performer as a quarterback I own the top three pa sing performances in Super Bowl history though I would argue a 1-2 record doesnt make an impre sive argument. Then there is the question of who is the best underdog story in NFL history, which is probably the closest Id get to the top of any list.Its all very flattering to have your name brought up in the discu sions. With that in mind, I thought it might be fun to start another conversation: What has been the best a sembly of quarterbacks on one team?Now, I know this really doesnt mean anything in the big picture of the NFL.But I was recently reminded of a pretty impre sive group I was a part of, and it got me thinking about whether(albeit a short period of time)it could have been the best collection of quarterback talent ever a sembled.Recently, I took part in a reunion of this group, to a degree, when I traveled to Utah to join old teammates Ty Detmer and Mark Brunell to coach a youth camp. It was great to "get the band back together" a la the Blues Brothers with two of Brian Orakpo Jersey the three quarterbacks that joined me in 1994 with the Packers. If you couldnt gue s, the fourth member of our group was none other thanlegendary Brett Favre.That summer, this group wouldnt have made many heads turn, as three of us had never started an NFL game, and the fourth had thrown almost as many interceptions as touchdowns in his first two seasons as a full-time starter. At the time, Ty Detmer boasted the most impre sive resume, but practically everything he had accomplished was at the collegiate level he was a two-time All-American, won the Heisman Trophy,finished in the Top 5 twiceand held various collegiate Eric Weems Jersey records.Take a look at this group now:65 NFL Seasons played.142,625 total pa sing yards. 934 TDs. 18 Pro Bowls. 1 Pro Bowl MVP. 5 NFL MVPs. 3 QBs that led team to best record in an NFL season. 5 SB appearances. Two of the last three players to win NFL MVP and SB in the same season. 1,658 pa sing yards in the Super Bowl. 11 pa sing TDs in the Super Bowl. Top three pa sing performances in Super Bowl history.MORE:Antonio Freeman pins Favre's true greatne s: 'We got all of Brett'I knew there was some talent in that room so many years ago, but there is no way anybodycould have predicted that type of succe s this group of quarterbacks would have in the NFL. The list of accomplishments may have been even more impre sive had Favre not started 297 straight games, and if the other guys had a chance to showcase their skills a little sooner.During the short time with the Packers, the four of us wore the same jersey and shared the same meeting room with Steve Mariucci ('Mooch'), our QB coach at the time and current teammate on NFL Network,my time as part of this group would consist of just a few short weeks (we joke often that Mooch made the decision to cut me). Even though my time with these three men was brief, I am still convinced to this day that competing against them and comparing myself to this amazingly talented group on a daily basis was a big part of why I didnt give up on my dream. Amidst nicknaming me "Pop,as in Pop Warner, and "Chachi" this was Mooch, still dont know why they pushed me to be better and showed me that I could play at the NFL level. I will never be considered the best quarterback in this group, but I know that the Derrick Morgan Jersey time I spent with these three great quarterbacks and even better men, is the only reason my name is mentioned in a few of the best conversations. And now, just over 20 years later, we got together to reminisce and coach some budding young quarterbacks.I couldnt help but wonder if this once una suming group could have po sibly been the best QB room the NFL has ever seen?So let the debate begin!

David Bakhtiari on phenomenal ride as on

First it was "Pitch Perfect 2."Now it's 'Meet The Protectors."It's not often an NFL left tackle such as David Robert McClain Jersey Bakhtiari gets so popular, but that's what happens when you play in Green Bay and in front of Aaron Rodgers.MORE: Athletes who became actors | Ranking the worst sports movies everAfter he and three of his Packers' offensive line mates T.J. Lang, Don Barclay and Josh Sitton joined Clay Matthews for a memorable on-screen moment,Bakhtiari is back in front of the camera with Barclay and center Corey Linsley to pitch Gillette Fusion ProShield at Walmart."Meet The Protectors" includes a video for each lineman to know more about them and their mi sion of protecting Rodgers at all costs."It's not too many times where you have offensive linemen be the face of a promotion, but when you look at it,it works so well," Bakhtiari said."You talk about shielding and protecting, it perfectly correlates with our position and what we have to do on the field."It also was a chance for Bakhtiari to have more good fun with his teammates, and make his first trip to New York as part of the campaign. It Luke Stocker Jersey 's an extension of the fun the Packers have in Green Bay year-round."We keep it very laid back with our offensive line, and our offense in general," Bakhtiari said."Aaron is a very relaxed individual, and it kind of trickles down."MORE: Top 10 Packers, all time | The NFL's biggest offseason questionsBakhtiari is committed to protecting Rodgers, but he jokes he can only do so much to try to help keep him both clean in the pocket and clean-shaven."In the pocket, 100 percent. I can't guarantee what's he going to do off the field. I think his mother may have to force that on him. I don't know if I can do that."As for Sitton, thevenerable and beardedleft guard who plays right next to him,Bakhtiari will have a much harder time convincing him to use arazor."I can probably put it in his locker," Bakhtiari said."From that point on, he's got to do what he wants to do. I think he's very attached to his facial hair."Knowing the way Bakhtiari has fit in with so well with his teammates over three seasons whether it's playing well against the NFC North or another game of Settlers of Catan it's hard to imagine him playing anywhere else.But when he was at the NFL Combine as a draft prospectfrom Colorado in 2013, Green Gerald McCoy Jersey Bay felt far from certain as a landing spot."I really didn't know. My agent and I had a few teams on the radar, but we really didn't think we would be with the Packers.I was fortunate they decided to select me inthe fourth round and I was very honored to work with them."I knew there would be these opportunities Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey , playing on the platform of the NFL and the Packers' organization.I'm very fortunate for all the opportunities I've had, 'Pitch Perfect 2', partnering with Gillette. It's been a phenomenal ride and I'm looking forward to what's to come. To share these experiences and fun with teammates I call my friends, it's hard to find that in the league." MORE: Sports movies that won Academy AwardsSo does that mean one can expect another appearancefromBakhtiari and his same fellow Packersin "Pitch Perfect 3"?"I don't know," Bakhtiari said.

The Michael Sam experiment in the NFL didn't work out, but maybe it could have if he wasn't drafted by the Rams.Sam acknowledged on Colin Cowherd's"The Herd" on Fox Sports that being the first Max Tuerk Jersey openly gay player in the NFL was difficult, but the strength of the Rams defensive line made it hard for Sam to make the team.PHOTOS: A history of sports pioneers | Keenan Allen Jersey David Kopay on being gay: The burden he carried"If I had it my way I really do wish I went undrafted," Sam said."I could have actually gone to a team who really needed the pa s rush and needed a defensive end that could pa s rush the quarterback."But Hunter Henry Jersey the Rams even though I learned a lot from Chris Long and (Robert)Quinn, I think I could have done better and be on an active roster right now if I went to a different team."After being released by the Rams, Sam spent a short stint in theCanadian Football League where he left the Montreal Alouettes twice before leaving for good.Sam went on to Junior Seau Jersey say hehasn't given up on his dream of playing in the NFL and is ready to play should a team call.

Tim Tebow just needs more playing time s
Posted On 11/18/2017 03:36:26

When it comes to his football career, at least, it seems Tim Tebow is in the same predicament as many job-seekers.After cutting the quarterback from the Eagles' roster on Saturday, coach Chip Kelly said he believes Tebow just needs more game reps to have a shot at playing in the NFL. The problem is no one appears willing Clayton Geathers Jersey to give Tebow those snaps.MORE: Remembering Tebow's rollercoaster career | Tebow's overhyped peers in other sports"I talked to him a little earlier today when we released him he just needs to get more playing time," Kelly said at a news conference. "He needs to get out there and get actual reps. I think hes done a ton on his own from Tarell Basham Jersey an individual basis, but its about playing the game and taking that next step."In baseball, Tebow could simply go to the minors and play regularly. But he has no equivalent fallback option available at the moment unle s he wants to consider going the CFL route.I've Darius Butler Jersey been told that the Alouettes last contacted Tim Tebow a year ago and that the Als are interested if Tebow wants to come to Canada. Mitch Gallo (@MitchyGallo) September 5, 2015 Considering the other career paths available to the charismatic former Heisman Trophy winner, it seems far more likely we will next see him in a suit and tie on television than in a helmet and shoulder pads on somebody's sideline.Not for lack of trying, though. Kelly praised Tebow for the work he did to overhaul his throwing mechanics, but ultimately said he still didn't believe the lefty was good enough to serve as the Eagles' No. 3 QB.Thanks @Eagles and Coach Kelly for giving me the opportunity to play the game I love! Romans 8:28 #Ble sed Tim Tebow (@TimTebow) September 5, 2015"He really improved his throwing motion from when he was throwing a couple years ago," Kelly said. "He worked extremely hard on it and deserves Erik Swoope Jersey a lot of credit for that."

NFL says Texas bathroom bill could preve
Posted On 11/18/2017 03:35:31

Five days after Houston hosted one of the greatest Super Bowls ever, the NFL delivereda me sage to the state of Texas.The JC Tretter Jersey "bathroom bill" currently under consideration could sink the state's chances of hosting another Super Bowl in the near future.MORE: Sports fans in North Carolina pay price for desperate HB2 supporters' discriminationTexas's controversial Senate Bill 6would require transgender people to use bathrooms in public schools, universities and government buildings according to their "biological sex."In a statement Friday, NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said any such law that is "discriminatory or inconsistent with our values" would "certainly be a factor" in Xavier Cooper Jersey awarding future Super Bowls."We want all fans to feel welcomed at our events and NFL policies prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other improper standard," McCarthy said.While the host sites for the next fourSuper Bowls are alreadyset (it will be held inMinneapolis in 2018, followed by Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles), Houston and Dallas could be expected to bid for a future game.The Texas bill issimilar in scale and tone to North Carolina'scontroversial House Bill 2 (HB2)law. The state has paid a high economic price since that law pa sed in March 2016,as the NBA withdrew the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte and the NCAA withdrew several championship events, including first- and second-roundNCAA basketball tournament games, with more sanctions looming if Marcus Martin Jersey the law isn't repealed.A spokesman for Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told TexasTribune.org that the law would not apply to profe sional sports stadiums, which would be free to set their own policy for bathroom use."Despite persistent misinformation in the media, under Senate Bill 6, all Texas teams will be able to set Robert Griffin III Jersey their own policies at the stadiums and arenas where they play and hold their events," Patrick spokesman Alejandro Garcia said.However, the legislation would apply to most college athletic facilities. Given the NCAA has already set a precedent by withdrawing events from North Carolina, Texas could expect the same treatment.
