Brian Dawkins has had an unforgettable Cory Joseph Jersey year. The former Pro Bowl safety saw his longtime team, the , win the in February. He pa sed the torch as unofficial Eagles hype man and front-office executive to . And now he's into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as one of the fiercest talents of his generation. More on NFL Had it not been for a psychiatrist, one of his former coaches and a renewed Christian faith, however, the 44-year-old Dawkins may not have made it to 2018. In fact, he may not have made it past 25.Reflecting on his five-time All-Pro career for an NBC Sports Philadelphia special, Dawkins recently that his journey was not always destined to run through Canton. On the field, No. 20 was an unceasingly impa sioned presence, complete with pregame speeches and highlight-reel hits. But off the field, as told to Gunn, Dawkins was "waging war with himself."An indefinite fan favorite in Philly, Dawkins was married in 1994, two Kyle Guy Jersey years before his rookie season with the Eagles. And during that rookie year, he faced pre sure from every direction --pre sure to overcome spousal differences, to manage "anger i sues," to raise a "colicky baby" and, of course, to survive in the ."Overall, I didn't have any outlets, and so I began to drink a little more than I needed Yogi Ferrell Jersey to, and that quickly spiraled down into depre sion," Dawkins said, per Gunn. "I went through a real dark, deep depre sion ... There were times I didn't even want to be around my family, didn't want to be around my son. I just wanted to be in a dark room Jabari Parker Jersey by myself with nobody." And that, Dawkins continued, led to thoughts of suicide."That's where suicidal thoughts came in," he said, "and then actually planning out how I would go about it in such a way that Connie (his wife) and my son would get the money from my insurance policy."Help arrived, however, in the form of former Eagles defensive coordinator Emmitt Thomas, who currently coaches the ' defensive backs. Thomas and his wife helped the safety find a psychiatrist, according to Gunn. Medications followed, but the real fix came when Dawkins sought Richaun Holmes Jersey something greater. "I rededicated my life," he said. "(I was) able to deal with that through my renewed faith. Going to more and more Bible studies. Giving my life over to the Lord completely helped me go on to become the athlete I became and the person I became."

Moments after announced he was returning to the for the 2021 season, the Chiefs decided to release the veteran running back in a move to clear salary cap space ( ).

Williams showcased his value in the postseason where he finished with 290 total yards (196 rushing, 84 receiving) Yogi Ferrell Jersey and six touchdowns. He finished with 17 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown in LIV -- scoring on a 4-yard catch to give Kansas City the lead for good Nate Archibald Jersey with 2:50 left and sealing the victory with a 38-yard touchdown run a minute later.

NBA Brooklyn Nets Jeresy had nothing to do with the Patriots' latest videotape incident, but he's one of many players who have had to answer questions regarding the team's latest controversy.

Spygate 2 is the furthest thing from Edelman's mind."Yeah, that's pretty much a joke," Edelman said, . "We haven't even thought about it, honestly. We've been thinking about other things. It's funny, but it is what it is. I don't know, it's ridiculous. My focus is on the Buffalo Bills."The is still investigating the matter in which Kyrie Irving Jersey New England hired a video crew to film an episode of the team's web series "Do Your Job," in which they follow the work of an advance scout. Video released by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports shows staffers calling out the Patriots videographers for clearly filming the Cincinnati Bengals sideline, which is a violation of NFL rules. The Patriots admitted to James Harden Jersey "inappropriately filming the field," but also said the film crew consisted of independent contractors, even though eight minutes of B-roll footage was shot. NFL commi sioner Roger Goodell said the league will make a decision when they gather all the information. There is no timeline for when a decision or potential punishment will come. "It's under review," Goodell said, . "We're going to be thorough. We're going to take our time and make sure Brooklyn Nets T-Shirts we look at everything that's pertinent here and make a decision."The Patriots could be facing some significant penalties, . The Patriots could be staring at some major fines and could even have a draft pick taken away, La Canfora said. The Patriots may not believe Spygate II is a Brooklyn Nets Hats controversy inside their locker room, but until the NFL makes a decision, there will continue to be questions about it.

has only played for the during his 10-year career, and if the team has its way, that'll remain the case into the 2021 season. New general manager George Paton said as much on Thursday, the Broncos Luke Kennard Jersey want Miller back for an 11th season. What he didn't say, however, is whether he actually expects Ky Bowman Jersey that to happen, adding that the team is still "working through" contract talks with Miller's representation.The 31-year-old Miller, who mi sed all of 2020 due to injury, is under contract through the 2021 season, but only if Denver exercises a team option that would guarantee $7 million of the veteran's $17.5 million base salary. Set to count more than $22 million against the Broncos' 2021 salary cap on Los Angeles Clippers T-Shirts the final year of a six-year, $114 million extension signed back in 2016, Miller could also be JaMychal Green Jersey released to save the team $18 million in cap space. Paton indicated earlier in the offseason that Denver was undecided about exercising the 2021 option, and that appears to remain true as talks continue.Off the field, meanwhile, the Broncos received some good news on Miller who will not face charges following an investigation in January by police in Parker, Colorado, from the Douglas County District Attorney's office. With the legal matter no longer an i Jay Scrubb Jersey sue the team must consider, the Broncos can continue contract talks with the former MVP.

is back and ready to play football.It's been a long road of recovery for the two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, battling to return after suffering a torn Achilles in his left leg in December. That was only one of his hurdles, however, because it was also revealed recently Sanders had as well -- to finally fix an Elton Brand Jersey i sue that began at some point in 2017. With both injuries now completely behind him, Sanders will finally be allowed to again take the field on Monday night -- per Adam Schefter of ESPN -- when the host the in their third .Needle s to say, this is a big deal for both Sanders and the Broncos. Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will play in a game tonight for the first time since tearing his Achilles at the Dec. 5 practice, and he will start, per source. Sanders will be introduced with Denvers starters Kawhi Leonard Jersey tonight pregame, run out of the tunnel, and be on field for first O snap. Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) Sanders took to Twitter to share his elation at the news. Glory to God.. I made it thru my storm and test now tonight I take the field with my teammates again. Im back stronger and better. Thank you for doing such an amazing job on my surgeries. You guys are the best in the world in my opinion. Emmanuel Sanders (@ESanders_10) The former third-round pick joined the Broncos in 2014 Los Angeles Clippers Hoodie after playing out his rookie deal with the , registering both of his Pro Bowl nods in Denver and helping the team hoist the Lombardi trophy following a 24-10 defeat of the in 50. That particular season (2015) was the second of what would become three Bob McAdoo Jersey consecutive 1,000-yard seasons for Sanders, but he's struggled to again reach those heights over the last two years.Poor and unsettled quarterback play didn't help his cause, but he was able to reel in 868 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2018 -- with at 72.4 percent catch rate -- before tearing his Achilles. Sanders will be looked upon in 2019 to be the sure-handed veteran target for newly-acquired , in a season where the the team is looking to turn things around in short order, particularly considering he NBA Los Angeles Clippers Jeresy 's an unrestricted free agent following this season."I feel good now that both of them have been taken care of," Sanders told . "I feel like I'm back to myself, finally." The Broncos are counting on it.

With in the shotgun and already accumulating something like 1,000 yards on 250 targets through two games, I will not blame you, avid fan and Practice Squad Power Rankings reader, for being completely enamored with the pa s game.Because of the shinine s of the Rams' aerial attack, you probably wouldn't believe me when I tell you that Los Angeles has finished in the top 10 in rushing attempts in three of Nick Allegretti Jersey Sean McVay's first four seasons. Dwight Schrute voice It's true. While analytics have tipped the scales toward pa sing more (and rightfully so), we mustn't forget that any Mike Shanahan disciple (like McVay) has offensive roots that reside in the run game. Shanahanians -- I'm officially trademarking that word -- want to call stretch runs over and over and over then play-action off them with offensive line movement that looks identical to that of those inside and outside zone plays.More so than anything else, the Shanahan system is famous for maximizing the efficiency of ANY running back. The quarterback friendline s of the offense is a useful byproduct.#NeverForget -- the NFC champion Rams of 2018 did have prime but got 4.9 yards per carry from and 7.0 yards per from #thiccc Hall of Famer out of absolute nowhere. You know what's mi sing from Los Angeles' ground-game, though? The next evolution of it that McVay's direct mentor, Kyle Shanahan, has adopted to his offense -- speed. If you trust your blocking system much, you might as well get running backs who generate splash plays when everything's gorgeously blocked in front of them.Since the start of the 2020 season, the Rams have just nine rushes of 20 or more yards, which is tied for the 10th-lowest figure in football. In 2018 alone, when Gurley still had deceptive, game-breaking speed, the Rams hit 14 run plays of 20-plus yards. is a reasonably quality, compact back. Justin Reid Jersey He's not a burner. The same is true for newly acquired run-game option . Plus, Henderson's battling a rib cartilage injury.And McVay hinted at a sudden need for speed in the ground game when he signed to the practice squad on Monday. Remember how you couldn't see Sonic the Hedgehog's feet because he ran so fast? His lower half was just a spinning circle. That's how I felt evaluating Hawkins at Louisville. He's built low to the ground and an absolute blur. He had six runs of 40-plus yards in 2019 and had runs of 70, 75 and 90 yards in 2020 for the Cardinal. Dude can go.In a time-tested running system that produces amazing running-back efficiency with insane on-field speed, Hawkins can be precisely what McVay and the Rams offense needs to round itself in a complete unit. Trust me, Sean. As for the Call Up Tally -- The CUT -- don't get me started. No Practice Squad Power Rankings alumni call ups to date as we enter the third weekend of the regular season. What I have noticed, and am not totally shocked by -- teams are leaning on veterans on their practice squad to begin the year. And that's sensible. The young guns will get their opportunities in time. Don't you worry. If you hear of a PSPR member getting The Call, alert me on Twitter, and feel free to use the hashtag #PSPR. Thank you in advance. Your next drink's on me. Last week, I shouted out PSPR alum for his two-touchdown masterpiece in Week 1. This week's shout goes to defensive tackle and longtime PSPR member for his sack of in the Bills shutout win in Miami. As a Nick Bolton Jersey refresher, teams can have up to 16 players on the practice squad with up to six "veterans" on it, players with no limitations as to their number of accrued seasons in the NFL. In a sense, I'm running the Practice Squad Power Rankings parallel to the NFL. That means, as was the case last year, I'm not going to feature "veterans." Telling you might eventually be a useful call-up for the ' run game was certainly not the fundamental intention of the PSPR.To continue to maintain the PSPR's sterling integrity, I'll only be including practice squaders who are rookies, second-year players, or third-year players. That's it.And as you'll see below, I couldn't resist ranking more players, given the increase in practice squad sizes this season. To stay in line with the league's figure, I hope to write about 16 individuals every Friday: 10 officially in the rankings and six honorable mentions. In the preseason, he accumulated 97 yards on 20 carries with a score, and three of those 20 carries went over 10 yards. And it's not as if he's only a low-volume, scat back with fantastic speed. Hawkins toted the rock 264 times at a 5.8 yards-per-carry clip in 2019 at Louisville. He plays bigger than his Devon Key Jersey size.I had a fourth-round grade on Green just a few months ago. He checked most of the boxes I have for a mid-round blocker who can come in and start right away. And . For reasons unbeknownst to me, Green went undrafted. But he protected like a -- you gue sed it -- early Day 3 pick in the preseason with one allowed pre sured on 43 pa s-blocking snaps. Naturally, the Texans released him on cutdown day, because Houston is completely set on its offensive line and doesn't need any young and talented blockers. Yeah right.Haynes was Seattle's fourth-round pick in 2019, and after beginning his rookie season on PUP due to a sports hernia surgery, he was thrust onto the field in the Seahawks' wild card round win over the Eagles in Philadelphia. And he looked solid! He spent most of last season on IR with another injury, but he's healthy now and was dominant -- mostly against backups -- in the preseason. Plus, he tested like a prospect at the combine. Placing Fulgham on the practice squad is no way to treat your reigning team leader in receiving yards. But here we are. The kinda-sorta rebuilding Eagles waived Fulgham at the end of August, which was weird to say the least. Sure, they've invested heavily in young wideouts of late but, umm, Fulgham is a young wideout who made the most of his opportunity in 2020 with 539 yards and four touchdowns at more than 14 yards per grab. Do I think Fulgham is the next or in Philly? No. He's probably not. But he's deserving of the top spot in the PSPR.Tuszka is back. He was a 2020 PSPR alum who was called up early in the season but rarely got a chance to actually rush the pa ser in Denver on a team that didn't have all season. Weird. Now he's on another club with a menacing pa s rush. The former North Dakota State star of course rocked the FCS ranks during his time with the Bison -- 19 tackles for lo s, 13.5 sacks in his final season -- then had a three-cone time of 6.78 at the combine. There Austin Blythe Jersey are some pa s-rush moves in his arsenal too, and now he's had time to add strength to his game.Carter has the girth, leverage, burst, and just enough pa s-rush moves to be a productive contributor if he gets The Call in Arizona. I'm very high on him. He's at No. 6 this week simply due to the veteran edge-rushing talent in front of him on the Cardinals' 53-man roster right now.It's going to ta

owner Jerry Jones is reportedly doing his best to slow down Roger Goodell's latest contract negotiations, adding another awkward twist in the saga involving the Dallas Cowboys, and the .Just a few weeks ago, it was reported that that would lock Goodell in through 2024. , and Jones has since, according to a report from Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN, gotten heavily involved with the contract talks and begun "impeding" them.A source told Schefter that "if it weren' Derek Roy Jersey t for Jerry's involvement, Goodell's extension by now could be done."Mortensen expanded on that idea, noting that Jones has e sentially become a "de facto" seventh member of the Compensation Committee (which negotiates with Goodell to work out a new deal) and has pushed forward the idea that Goodell is "paid way too much money." "In Jones' case, according to a source, he believes he is representing the other owners," Mortensen said. "And he believes this thing needs a lot of Matt Hunwick Jersey discu sion before they just give him a contract, it's got to be a big reduction, he's made over $200 million since he became commi sioner in 2006."The NFL enjoys tax-exempt status as a non-profit, so . Goodell was ,, took and took .Jones is, by many accounts, . And Mortensen reports that his influence is working in the Goodell situation because while some members of the Competition Committee are "optimistic that a new proposal" for Goodell's contract will emerge from an upcoming conference call, "there are others who say there's no way a new proposal emerges" from that call. This cannot be a coincidence: Goodell was rumored to be getting a monster extension on August 21, just nine days after , and several days before Elliott had an appeal hearing and eventually sued the NFL.Don't forget that Pat Lafontaine Women Jersey he was swearing up and down that he believed Elliott would be cleared when it came to the punishment handed down by the league. Jones was of the punishment.This marks the third straight year in which Goodell has tangled with a prominent player on the team of a highly-influential owner.

Mortensen reported that he was told Jones has "stepped on the toes" of some influential owners of the past years and it might be starting to catch up with him. The question is how contentious these negotiations get. Goodell has made a lot of money over the past several years -- . He could probably make "only" $25 million a year and be just fine, although the pride factor in having his salary slashed might be a problem there.Goodell wields a lot of power, but there might not be a more powerful person in the NFL than Jerry Jones. These are . Perhaps Robin Lehner Men Jersey it's po sible/likely that Jones' influence got cranked up a notch when as soon as next week. This situation could easily continue to escalate.

As someone who lives in Nashville, I've noticed that the national media loves to ignore the AFC South, so today, I'm going to unignore.Is unignore even a word? I have no idea, but if it's not, I'm making it one. Welcome to the Thursday newsletter where we're going to be covering the AFC South, the AFC South and then some more AFC South. However, I won't be going 100% AFC South, because you should never go 100% AFC South. We'll also be ranking quarterbacks who could have a breakout year and taking a look at unique contract, so let's get to the rundown.As always, here's your weekly reminder to tell all your friends to sign up for the Pick Six newsletter. You should especially tell them to sign up if they're a fan of an AFC South team. Tell them we don't ignore the AFC South there. To get your friends to sign up, all you have to do is with them. 1. Today's show: Burning training camp questions for the AFC SouthIf I had to rank divisions this year based on which ones are the most intriguing, I'd probably put the AFC South at the top. The have a new star receiver ( ), the have a new star quarterback ( ), the are likely going to trade their starting quarterback ( ) and not only did the just hire one of the most succe Olli Maatta Kids Jersey sful college coaches of all-time (Urban Meyer), but they also added one of the most succe sful college quarterbacks ever ( ). Basically, there's a lot to talk about with the AFC South so we thought we would use Thursday's episode of the Pick Six Podcast to answer one burning question for each team in that division.We'll cover our biggest question for the Colts here, but if you want to hear the rest of our questions, you'll have to listen to the podcast (You can also ).Can Frank Reich fix Carson Wentz?If the Colts want to be a contender this season, they're going to need a super effort from Wentz. Although the former quarterback struggled during Sidney Crosby Women Jersey his final few seasons in Philly, there is a chance we could see him improve in Indy and that's because he's reuniting with Reich, who served as his offensive coordinator in 2017 while both were with the Eagles. That was Philly's Super Bowl season and with Reich running the offense, Wentz was an MVP candidate before getting injured late in the year. I'm not sure about you, but I am fully on the Wentz Wagon. I think Reich is going to fix him and I think there's a good chance we could see the Colts in the AFC title game.As for the rest of today's episode, Jeff Kerr joined Will Brinson and they spent plenty of time talking about the Titans, Jaguars, and Texans (along with the Colts), so if you're a fan of the AFC South, you're definitely going to want to check out the episode.To listen to today's episode -- and to follow the podcast -- . 2. Colts unveil new throwback uniform for 2021The Indianapolis Colts , but since the Colts uniform has never undergone any major changes throughout their history, you might be wondering how this throwback is different from their normal uniform, so I'm going to point out all the changes.The new uniform is a throwback to the 1956 season.Here are the main differences between the old school uniform and the uniform they usually wear:Helmet.The horseshoe that usually goes on the side of the helmet will be moved to the back Brandon Tanev Jersey of the helmet for the throwback game. The back of the helmet will actually feature two mini horseshoes with one on each side of Indy's blue stripe.Player Numbers.Numbers on the throwback jerseys will change slightly to mirror Colts uniforms from the 1950s. The TV numbers will be above the shoulder stripes on the throwbacks (The TV numbers are below the shoulder stripes on the current uniforms).Stripes. The shoulder panel on the throwback will feature three stripes instead of the two used on the current uniform (The socks will also feature three stripes instead of two). The pants will feature one blue stripe down the seam instead of two.The home throwback uniforms, which are blue, will only be worn in one game this year and that will come in Week 12 (Nov. 28) against the . You can see a . If you want to see what the current uniform looks like so you can compare the two, you . The Colts also released a special video, which you can . 3. hand out unique record-setting contract to Fred WarnerFred Warner Pittsburgh Penguins Women Jersey is now the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL after the 49ers to $95 million, which means he can now afford to go to space with Jeff Bezos.Although Warner landed a record-setting deal, that's only one reason why it's notable. The other reason is because of the unique way that the contract is structured. The deal includes two voidable years at the end that the 49ers can BUY BACK so that they don't void.Here's at look at the details and :Signing Bonus: $12.32 million2021: $920,000 base salary2022: $2.564 million base salary plus $12.68 million option bonus2023: $12.925 million base salary2024: $15.3 million base salary2025 (VOID): $17.65 million base salary2026 (VOID): $17.65 million base salaryBuyback bonus:$3.6 million (49ers must pay Warner this bonus in 2024 to buy back the final two years of his deal) The voidable years are in there for two reasons. First, it allows the 49ers to spread out Warner's signing bonus over six seasons while also allowing them to spread out his roster bonus over five years. If the 49ers want to rescind the voidable years, then they'll have to cut Warner a check for $3.6 million in 2024 to buy them back. If that happens, the final two years will become active and Warner will be Ryan Reaves Jersey under contract in 2025 and 2026 at the salary numbers listed above. Basically, if the 49ers want to keep him for the final two years, they'll have to pay him $3.6 million plus $17.65 million plus $17.65 million, which comes out to $38.9 million.That really makes this two contracts in one with the second deal being a two-year, $38.9 million contract.Warner is in the NFL, but that likely won't last for long since of the Colts is expected to break that record in the very near future. 4. Ranking quarterbacks by who's most likely to have a breakout seasonIf there's one quarterback last year who had a breakout season, it was definitely Josh Allen. After putting up mediocre numbers during his first two years in Buffalo, Allen exploded onto the scene in 2020 with a season that was so good he spent most of the year in the MVP conversation.With that in mind, Chris Trapa so took a look around the NFL to try and figure out which quarterbacks are mostly likely to have a breakout season in 2021. Here are his top three candidates. , . , . , . If you want to check out Trapa so's . 5. Three teams po sibly eyeing Deshaun Watson trade Due to his legal situation, Deshaun Watson's

Keep bringing in good people for D-line, he Micheal Haley Jersey said. Ill even root for them to bring Pep back. If they can bring Julius back, Im all aboard. Its true that you can never have too many pa s-rushers, and if youre looking for a guy to situationally get after the quarterback, there are few better options than Peppers. Even last season at 36 years old, he recorded 7.5 sacks and 37 quarterback pre sures, per Vincent Trocheck Kids Jersey Pro Football Focus. There will likely be teams that can offer him a larger role than can the Panthers, but none would be a better story than him returning to his first team.

"In that one on Monday night with the Bengals , it feels like almost, just, you're out there to hit people, and we don't feel the same respect from them that Baltimore and we have," Roethlisberger said Wednesday, via ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler. "I'm not really Jamie Mcginn Jersey sure why." We are: Before 2015, the Ravens regularly made the playoffs, regularly won in the playoffs, and in February 2013, brought home a Lombardi Trophy. The Bengals, meanwhile, are 0-7 in the postseason under Marvin Lewis, who was hired in 2003 Michael Matheson Men Jersey . They are also 2-13 against the Steelers in Paul Brown stadium during that time. By contrast, between November 2013 and November 2016, the Ravens were 6-1 against the Steelers, though Pittsburgh has won the last two meetings. "The difference between this game and the Cincinnati game is these two teams -- us and Baltimore -- there's always a respect involved in it," Roethlisberger said. "You're going to get hit really hard or you're going Colton Sceviour Kids Jersey to hit somebody really hard, but you're going to help them up and say, 'Man, nice job.'
