#23 Darius Slay Jr Nike Lions Gray Men’s Stitched NFL Limited Rush Jersey

Darius Slay’s 2017 season isn’t done just yet. The Detroit Lions’ fifth-year cornerback has a few more practices to go and a Pro Bowl game left on the docket. Once the Pro Bowl concludes, Slay’s 2017 season to remember will be over.

It was a season that saw the former second-round pick tie for the NFL lead with eight interceptions. Slay had six interceptions combined in his previous four seasons with the team.

His 26 passes defended led the NFL this season. His previous high was 17 back in 2014.

Slay was thrown at the third-most times of any cornerback in the NFL this year, yet opposing passers had just a little better than a 55.0 passer rating when throwing his way.

Slay also earned first-team All-Pro honors by the Associated Press. It was his first selection to the All-Pro team.

It certainly wasn’t a bad 2017 for Slay from an individual perspective.

So, what can we expect in 2018?

“Find a way to get better,” Slay said after the season while he cleaned out his locker. “From eight (interceptions), I need to have 10 (next year). So, I’ll just go find a way (to do) little things that make me better and go out here and work and try to be the best in the game.”

The Lions haven’t had a player reach 10 interceptions in a single season since Hall of Famer Lem Barney snagged 10 in the 1967 season. In all, only Barney, Don Doll (twice) and Jack Christiansen (twice) have ever reached 10 interceptions in a single season in franchise history.

Slay is young and beaming with confidence after the season he had this year. He’s wanted to be considered among the NFL’s elite corners for some time, and now that he’s among them, he has his sights set on being the game’s best.

He’s aiming high with his personal goals for 2018. If he hits them, it will certainly be good news for Detroit’s defense next season.

The NFL salary cap is rising another $10 million for the 2018 season, jumping from $167 million last year to $177.2 million.

This marks the seventh consecutive season the cap has increased and fifth straight year it has gone up at least $10 million. Since the league implemented its current collective bargaining agreement in 2011, the salary cap has jumped 47.7 percent.

In addition to the $177.2 million, the Detroit Lions will carryover an additional $4.15 million in unused cap space from the previous year.

With the release of the cap increase, franchise tag amounts have also been calculated. The Lions announced last week the team will use the tag on defensive end Ziggy Ansah. The one-year deal will cost the Lions $17.14 million, slightly less than originally expected.

Here’s a look at the Super Bowl prospects of the Atlanta Falcons, who finished the season 10-6. The tiers consist of: Realistic Super Bowl expectations; Should contend, but there are question marks; Middle of the pack; Lots of work to do; and Nowhere close.

Westgate odds to win the Super Bowl LIII: 18-1

Should contend, but there are question marks: The Falcons and owner Arthur Blank would love nothing more than to become the first team to play a Super Bowl in its own stadium. In order to make that a reality, the Falcons have to rediscover the offensive success they enjoyed during their 2016 Super Bowl run, when they averaged a league-best 33.8 points per game. The missing element from that team is offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, now the head of the San Francisco 49ers. New coordinator Steve Sarkisian wasn’t able to uphold the standard in his first season, but coach Dan Quinn expressed full confidence in Sarkisian heading into the 2018 season.

The Falcons have a franchise quarterback in Matt Ryan, a game-changing receiver in Julio Jones, and a potent, 1-2 running back combo in Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, provided they remain together. But the Falcons need to upgrade the interior of the offensive line next to Pro Bowl center Alex Mack, and could use another serious deep threat to pair with Jones. Last season’s 11.7 points per game slide proved to be detrimental.

The Falcons have all the elements of a top-tier defense, as Quinn has assembled one of the fastest units around. But to actually win a Super Bowl, they need to continue to upgrade the defensive line so pressure on opposing quarterbacks, particularly up the middle, is consistent. Deion Jones, Keanu Neal, Vic Beasley Jr., and Takk McKinley are young stars who could make the Falcons a feared group for years to come. But the Falcons should always be on the hunt for more playmakers, particularly in the secondary.

And the Falcons won’t enjoy as much success as they desire without making the necessary improvements on special teams. The first matter of business is re-signing reliable kicker Matt Bryant, who turns 43 in May.

Welcome to Straight form the ‘Beek! The Falcons are well into offseason mode preparing for 2018. You’ve got plenty of questions – and I’ve got answers. Just remember, all opinions you see in this space are mine, unless otherwise noted.

And we’re off.

Chris from Villa Rica, GA

Hello, Beek! I’m excited about the move with switching Vic Beasley to full time defensive end. Also, not to mention Takkarist McKinley had six sacks with minimal playing time. Damn that guy has a hell of a motor. My question is, with Beasley a full-time defensive end, do you think that move is deciding to part ways with Adrian Clayborn (and let Duke Riley become our spy linebacker)? Your thoughts? And once again, thanks for what you do FOR THE FALCONS FANS. RISE UP.

Matt: Hey, Chris. Something tells me you’re not the only one who is excited to see Vic Beasley moving to defensive end full time. After registering a league-best 15.5 sacks in 2016, Beasley tallied just 5.0 sacks last season. Keep in mind, too, that he also missed a couple of games with a hamstring injury early in the season. Regardless, the Falcons’ overall sack number actually increased from 34 in 2016 to 39 in 2017. Some people tend to forget or overlook that number I’ve noticed. And you’re correct about McKinley, who managed to get six sacks during his rookie season. His continuing development is definitely one of the bright spots on this unit moving forward. What happens moving forward is all speculation at this point, Chris. No one knows at this point what the Falcons will do with their own soon-to-be free agents. Right now, the team is focusing on getting Matt Ryan a new deal, which will allow the Falcons to be more flexible and creative in signing players this year and years to come. You mentioned Vic Beasley, who registered six sacks in one game alone and finished with 9.5 for the season. It’ll be interesting to what happens there – along with Dontari Poe, too. But I’d tap the brakes and try not to speculate too much. A lot of decisions will be made in the coming weeks … so try to be patient! I know, it’s not easy. Just have faith in general manager Thomas Dimitroff and the Falcons personnel department. They do a great job year in and year out.

Vice President Mike Pence says he left Sunday’s 49ers-Colts game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis because of protesting that took place during the national anthem.

For the second week in a row, the 49ers had more than 20 players kneeling during the national anthem with their hands over their hearts. Teammates stood behind the kneeling players with one hand on a kneeling teammate’s shoulder and the other over their hearts.

The Colts wore black T-shirts with the words “We Will” on the front and “Stand for equality, justice, unity, respect, dialogue, opportunity” on the back for the wholesale nfl authentic jerseys second straight week. The players stood with their arms locked during the anthem.

Pence tweeted a statement in which he said he would not dignify any event that disrespects soldiers, the flag or the anthem.

On Sunday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he had asked Pence to leave the game if any players knelt during the anthem.

49ers safety Eric Reid said he believed Pence’s actions were premeditated.

“First of all, does anyone know the last time he’s been to a football game?” Reid said after the game. “OK, with that being said, he tweeted out a 3-year-old photo of him at a Colts game. So with the information that I have, the last time he’s been to a football game is three years ago. So this looks like a PR stunt to me.

“He knew our team has had the most players protest. He knew that we were probably going to do it again. This is what systemic oppression looks like. A man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple things out and leaves the game in an attempt to thwart our efforts. Based on the information I have, that’s the assumption I made.”

A former governor of Indiana, Pence had been in Indianapolis as part of the celebration of Peyton Manning and his jersey retirement and induction into the Colts’ Ring of Honor during Sunday’s game.

Pence had tweeted a photo of him and his wife, Karen Pence, saying they were looking forward to cheering for the Colts and honoring Manning. But the Indianapolis Star noted that the photo appeared to be from 2014.

The photo the vice president tweeted showed him wearing a Colts polo shirt. He was photographed wearing a suit during the national anthem Sunday.

The pool reporter with the vice president had been told to stay outside the stadium and that Pence might leave the game early.

Aides to the vice president did not respond to questions on whether he had planned to make the public walk-out in the game against the 49ers, who have regularly held the demonstrations.

Pence has attended other NFL games, including December’s Colts-Jets game at MetLife Stadium when he was the vice president-elect.

The NFL and the Colts declined to comment on Pence’s exit, while Indianapolis coach Chuck Pagano steered clear of the topic in his postgame news conference.

NFL players who have demonstrated during the national anthem over the past year have said they are protesting police brutality and racism, not the flag or the anthem itself.

The protests began in August 2016, when former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat during the national anthem in a preseason game.

During a rally in Alabama on Sept. 22, Trump chastised the practice, saying, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired.'” He later encouraged fans to leave NFL stadiums if they saw it happen in front of them.

Reid said the 49ers’ actions during the anthem Sunday were not as planned as last week’s display in Arizona.

“These were guys that felt compelled to continue to protest. I think it is gaining ground,” Reid said. “… I will continue to say and encourage people to educate themselves on how we got to where we are today because it didn’t happen overnight and it’s not going to happen overnight to fix these issues. So we’re going to keep talking about it. I know that I will keep doing what I feel is necessary to use the platform I have to make those changes.

“It’s really disheartening when everything that I was raised on was to be the best person I could be to help people that need help and the vice president of the United States is trying to confuse the message on what we’re trying to put out there. I don’t know what else to say about it.”

Around the NFL on Sunday, at least seven players from two teams knelt during the national anthem while three Miami Dolphins players and the Tennessee Titans’ Rishard Matthews remained in the tunnel or locker room for the anthem. Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch continued to sit during the anthem.
