Women’s Kansas City Chiefs Alex Smith Nike White Platinum Jersey

The Cleveland Browns are loaded with assets to solve the quarterback situation this off-season.

The organization possesses roughly $118 million in salary cap space as well as five choices in the first two rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft. Bleacher Report’s Brent Sobleski took a crack at predicting where some of the most heavily discussed quarterbacks will land.

“They could take multiple approaches, but the Browns would be wise to find a veteran, draft the top available prospect with the No. 1 overall pick and continue to develop Kizer. Considering the team’s laughably awful history, every lead needs to be pursued,” Sobleski said.

After the addition of General Manager John Dorsey, it would make sense for quarterback Alex Smith to end up in Cleveland. There are a few hurdles to clear before than can become a reality.

“First, the Kansas City Chiefs must move on from the 33-year-old. The decision seems like an easy one since Smith is on the books for a $20.6 million cap hit next season. The team could save $17 million by releasing him, and 2017 first-round pick Patrick Mahomes is waiting in the wings.

Second, former Kansas City and new Cleveland general manager John Dorsey must sell Smith on joining the league’s worst franchise. However, Dorsey brought the signal-caller to the Chiefs in 2013, and their relationship could prove to be an edge for the Browns over any other suitor.”

As noted, Dorsey acquired Smith from the San Francisco 49ers after becoming the General Manager of the Chiefs in 2013.

The former No. 1 overall selection has completed 1,587-of-2,436 passes for 17,608 yards, 102 touchdowns and 33 touchdowns during his five seasons with Kansas City; the best five years of his career. He has thrown double-digit interceptions in just four of his 12 seasons. It has not happened since the 2010 season.

Conversely, rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer has thrown 21 interceptions this season. The circumstances are a little different but Smith has thrown more than 12 interceptions over the course of a season just once. During the 2006 campaign, his second season, he threw 16 interceptions.

Chiefs Kingdom is clearly excited about both the present and the future. While we’re all in an extra celebratory mood this holiday season due to the newly punch playoff ticket for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, questions are also being asked about whether or not Chiefs fans will see their quarterback of the future anytime soon.

Now that the Chiefs have a playoff spot locked up, Andy Reid was noncommittal as to whether or not he would be resting the Chiefs starters as they travel to Mile High to play the Denver Broncos in Week 17. With nothing to play for besides individual stats, Reid is likely to at least give a few players a break. Will one of those be starting quarterback Alex Smith?

If Smith is given a break, Patrick Mahomes could be given his first professional reps at the NFL level. For those fans who’ve been waiting to see the Chiefs first round pick, Week 17 could provide an exciting glimpse into the future.

Smith was asked about the potential of Mahomes playing on Sunday and whether or not he would be ready to play. Being mentally ready after a full season in the playbook is only one part of the equation, Smith said.

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.

Cowboys take bumpy road wholesale jerseys in inching closer to NFC East title

Cowboys take bumpy road wholesale jerseys in inching closer to NFC East title

When Ezekiel Elliott jumped into the Salvation Army kettle in the second quarter wholesale jerseys, who knew the Dallas Cowboys’ coaches wouldn’t be able to find him again until the fourth quarter?

Good things happen when the Cowboys give the ball to Elliott. His re-emergence and the domination by defensive end David Irving helped kill the clock and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Cowboys’ 26-20 win that leaves them closer to an NFC East title and a potential first-round bye.

But the Cowboys’ 12th win of the season shouldn’t have been this hard wholesale jersey outlet.

Penalties contributed to missed touchdown opportunities and ultimately two missed field-goal attempts by Dan Bailey. Strange play calls wiped out two more scoring opportunities.

Dak Prescott rebounded with a tidy 32-of-36, 279-yard showing after two less-than-stellar showings. He even added his sixth rushing touchdown, a franchise record for a quarterback. He took the boil out of a potential move at quarterback with his performance as well.

But this game should not have been this close. Not when a quarterback has just four incompletions — none in the second half — and Elliott averages 6.9 yards per carry with 159 yards on 23 carries.

Elliott set the team rookie record with his 13th rushing touchdown on a 2-yard run in the second quarter and quickly disappeared from sight by jumping in one of the Salvation Army kettles behind the end zone in celebration. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, his coaches seemed to wholesale jerseys us forget him too.

At least until 6 minutes, 55 seconds remained and he responded with a 42-yard run. But the Cowboys could not stand the prosperity; Elliott was stopped a yard short of a first down four plays later and Dallas had to settle for another field goal.

If the Cowboys want to be playing late into January, the offense cannot afford the mistakes it had Sunday. This team is not built for the defense to carry them, although four more takeaways and clutch play in the fourth quarter (hello, Irving) certainly helped.

It started early with Vince Mayle’s holding penalty putting the Cowboys in a second-and-long situation on the opening drive, which turned into a third-and-long after Prescott was sacked. Dan Bailey missed his first of two 50-yard plus field-goal attempts.

On the second drive, a face mask penalty on Doug Free put the Cowboys behind the chains and forced them to settle for a field goal.

With clean drives on their third and fourth possessions, the Cowboys scored touchdowns. Simple.

But another penalty helped contribute to a longer-than-necessary field-goal try by Bailey that was hooked left. In the second half, there was a questionable third-and-2 reverse call in which Elliott’s pitch to Lucky Whitehead was dropped. A minus-7-yard jet sweep by Whitehead shut down the seventh drive. Even after taking over at the Tampa Bay 22 with Jeff Heath’s interception, the Cowboys could manage only a 2-yard drive that ended in a Bailey field goal with 9:35 to play for a 23-20 lead jerseys cheap wholesale.

Add in a Jason Witten fumble, the aforementioned stop on third down and a third-down sack of Prescott, and the Cowboys found themselves sweating out a win they didn’t need to sweat over. At least not sweat this much.

Amari Cooper more confident heading into Year 2

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper made a splash in his rookie season, finishing with 1,070 yards — the first rookie to do so in club history — and earned a Pro Bowl bid wholesale jerseys.

Cooper’s hot season was slowed down after sustaining a foot injury last December — an injury that the Raiders considered shutting the rookie down for the remainder of the season.

The former first-round pick is channeling last year’s frustrating end into his performance at the team’s offseason workouts. Cooper’s earnestness and newfound wholesale sports jerseys confidence has not gone unnoticed by his veteran teammates.

“I always joked around last year that three years ago, he was in seventh period chemistry,” quarterback Derek Carr said per CSN Bay Area. “He’s a young guy, and he was just learning his way around but going to the Pro Bowl while doing it.

“He has (always been) very special, but now he’s more open. He’s more talkative. But everyone is like that their rookie year, no matter who it is. There is so much going on mentally in this game that a lot of guys are more reserved and quiet, not to us, but in general. Now, you see he and ‘Crab’ (Michael Crabtree) joking more because he is more comfortable.”

Veteran wideout Michael Crabtree has noticed Cooper’s wholesale jerseys us personality emerge as well. Crabtree says he’s eager to see what the receiving duo can produce this season.

“It’s one year and every year adds experience,” Crabtree said. “It’s one of those things when you have talent like that you just build off of it, really with the knowledge of the game. You’re getting smarter and different situations on the field, and I feel like he is doing that. I can’t wait to get out there with wholesale jersey outlet him in games and do our thing.”

Take Two: Rosen sounds off, Texas counting on newcomers on offense

Take Two: Rosen sounds off, Texas counting on newcomers on offense

Take Two is back this week tackling a handful of issues in the college football landscape.

National Recruiting Analyst Adam Gorney lays out the situation and then receives takes from wholesale jerseys National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell and a local expert from the network of team sites.

SHOULD ROSEN KEEP QUIET?

Storyline: UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen is uber-talented and is lining up to be a surefire first-round draft pick after two more seasons. The kid can play.

He can also ruffle feathers. Like when he wore a F&!K Trump hat to Donald Trump’s golf course in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., last month. Or when he went to social media to rip college amateurism rules after UCLA signed a $280 million deal this week with Under Armour, the biggest in NCAA history. Of that, Rosen and his fellow student-athletes at UCLA won’t see a penny.

Last year as a freshman, Rosen was pictured with a girl in a hot tub – in his dorm room. UCLA notified the media the hot tub has since been removed.

The former five-star quarterback from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco is young, having fun and speaks his mind. But is it in his best interest for the long term? Should Rosen say what he wants or should the UCLA quarterback consider toning it down so he doesn’t turn off NFL scouts and executives who are watching every move?

On the Rich Eisen Show recently, UCLA coach Jim Mora heaped tremendous praise on Rosen but also said he has asked Rosen if he wants to be more like Johnny Manziel or Tom Brady is wholesale jerseys legit. The implication is clear. Maybe Rosen should tone it down.

First take: “Josh Rosen is probably the most intelligent recruit/freshman I’ve been around in my time covering UCLA. He was the first person to ever graduate early from St. John Bosco, and I’d bet his IQ puts him in a pretty good national percentile. So with that being said, I think he’s earned the right to speak out on controversial subjects. He’s educated and informed, and if he has an opinion that he believes is worth sharing, then he should go ahead and do it. As long as it’s not affecting his play or his teammates, I don’t see why anybody should have wholesale jerseys us an issue with statements he makes on his personal Instagram page.”

Second take: “I know everything gets scrutinized at the NFL level and I’m always one to say, ‘Don’t be stupid.’ When I see the Laremy Tunsil situation come out, Byron Cowart get busted at Auburn and Cameron Robinson recently hit with felony charges, that’s stuff the NFL really gets scared about. An outspoken, brash, cocky quarterback? I don’t think they worry about that as long as he has the talent to back it up. The big fear is that Josh Rosen is Jeff George — an ultra-talented kid with every skill you’d ever want but is just a jerk. I don’t get that impression. Through the recruiting process that turned off Stanford and they didn’t offer him, I just think he has that ‘it’ factor about him where NFL GMs are going to gravitate toward.”

COULD TEXAS SURPRISE?

Storyline: Freshman quarterback Shane Buechele has been described as the “main man” at Texas and the “solution” to the Longhorns’ quarterback issues according to various media reports.

Third-year coach Charlie Strong better hope so.

Strong is on the hot seat in Austin. He’s hired a new offensive coordinator, Sterlin Gilbert from Tulsa, to figure out how to produce more than just 1,751 passing yards and nine passing touchdowns like last season.

For a coach looking for more time, a freshman quarterback coupled with a new offensive coordinator doesn’t seem like the best –- or quickest usa jerseys wholesale— fix. But it could also be like hitting gold, a fresh start on both fronts that could reap great rewards.

Some prognosticators have Texas as one of the surprise teams in college football this season. Strong needs that to happen. Winning will help recruiting and then the Longhorns could be off to the races.

It has to happen now, though, or Texas could be looking for someone else to kick-start this thing. Someone else might be the “solution.”

First take: “We really won’t know for sure until the team hits the cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys field in the fall, but it does have a feel that Charlie Strong and Texas may have finally found an effective combination in first-year offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert and true freshman quarterback Shane Buechele. For the first time in a while, Texas will run an innovative, up-tempo offense. And in Buechele, the Longhorns finally may have solved their quarterback problems that have plagued the program for years. If things go well this year and Texas can stockpile some wins, I can certainly see a scenario where Texas begins to haul in top national recruiting classes on a regular basis. Then again, if the offense struggles – and that’s always a possibility with a new OC and true freshman QB – it could punch Strong’s ticket out of Austin.”

Second take: “It’s a new offensive coordinator and a freshman quarterback and Strong is hitching his wagon to that. That’s really scary. In this day and age, you can have a freshman quarterback have success and build on that success. But can you do it on the hot seat? Can it happen? Yes. But are the percentages there that it’s likely to happen? I don’t know of too many examples.”
