“I told Tom that I’m sorry. I told him that I apologize. I can’t make the organization look like that and put us in situations like that. That’s not us. That’s not how we are as a team. That’s not how we are as an organization. We had a good talk. I told them from here on out, nothing else will happen.”

Wholesale Dan McCullers-Sanders jersey Coach Doug Marrone said he’s wholesale jersey met with Fowler but did not want to disclose what was said. He also said any discipline from the team will be handled in-house.

“Any time something like that happens, no matter who it is, you’re disappointed,” Marrone said. “For me it’s a little bit bigger than that. I believe that we represent something even more so than the organization. We represent a sport, a league, so I think whenever those things happen no matter who it may be I think that it’s concerning.”

Three of Fowler’s teammates also spoke on Wednesday — linebacker Paul Posluszny jersey jersey, tight end Marcedes Lewis jersey and defensive end Calais Campbell jersey jersey — and each said they are willing to help Fowler in any way.

“I take a lot of pride in being a leader, but a lot of it is I just care about my teammates and Dante is a good kid,” Campbell said. “Just need to worry about those guys doing all the right things and understand the possibilities are in front of them. Of course, I’ve talked to him, tried to motivate him, give him encouragement, pick him up when he needs to be picked up and vice versa when it comes to the football field.”

According to a St. Petersburg Police Department statement, Fowler was arrested July 18 and charged with misdemeanor battery and criminal mischief after he hit a man, knocked off his glasses and stepped on them, then threw the victim’s grocery bag into a lake. The statement said the incident began after the victim made a comment about Fowler’s driving through the parking lot at a local apartment complex.

“At the end of the day, it could have went down a totally different way,” Fowler said. “I could have [taken] the right approach. I took the wrong approach, and I realize that I’m wrong for that. Like I said, it won’t happen again.”

That was Fowler’s third off-field incident in 17 months. He also was in arrested Miami Beach in March 2016 and charged with assault against a police officer/EMT and resisting arrest without violence. The misdemeanor charges were dropped in December 2016 after he completed a pretrial intervention program.

A month before that, a video surfaced on of Fowler apparently refereeing a fight between his girlfriend and the mother of his child. The NFL investigated the matter, but Fowler was not disciplined by the league. He released a statement apologizing for his actions.

In addition, Fowler has been cited for 10 moving violations in four counties in Florida in the past two years — including instances in which he was issued tickets for driving 98 mph in a 55 mph zone in Jacksonville and 99 mph in a 70 mph zone in Alachua County.

Yet the third overall draft pick in 2015 says he does not have a problem with maturity.

“It’s just some things, just learning and growing,” Fowler said. “I’m a professional. People are going to push me to that point. I just have to be the bigger person and realize who I am and do that. Maturity is not a problem.

“I’m actually growing a lot, especially with this new structure [under Coughlin and coach Doug Marrone] and everything like that. Starting to carve me into the person I want to be, the professional I want to be. It’s just a bump in the road that I have to get over and put past me and show you guys, show the organization, show the city, that I’m a role model and I want to go in that route and not go in another bad route.”

Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who once coached Vick with the Philadelphia Eagles jersey, made the invitation to his former quarterback to join the Kansas City staff for the rest of the summer.

Cheap Jace Amaro jersey “He had been doing some coaching at the high-school level,” Reid said of Vick, who last saw NFL action with the Steelers in 2015. “He really enjoyed that. Like a lot of players, when they get done playing, they’re searching for different things they can do with the rest of their professional lives. He’s got a bunch of routes he can go, but he had an interest in coaching, so we invited him up here and said, ‘Hey, give it a try and see what you think, see if you like it.’

“It’s been great for the players to bounce things off of. He’s been in this offense before so he understands it.”

Reid indicated he thinks Vick has a bright future in coaching if he decides he wants to make it a profession.

“Michael is a great communicator,” Reid said. “Not only does he speak well but he sees things and can articulate that. In coaching you’ve got to be able to do that. Guys are attracted to him. They like his presence and the way he carries himself, and so they’re not afraid to talk to him, and likewise he’s not afraid to talk to them.”

Bray might initially have been bashful about approaching Vick, but Vick wasn’t shy about relaying some quick tips to the fifth-year pro.

“He’s given me some advice on footwork,” Bray said. “I know we’re a little different style of player, but he’s been in the game a long time. He knows what he’s talking about.”

Thomas Davis angered to be linked to Panthers GM Gettleman’s firing

Wholesale Anthony Johnson jersey

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Carolina Panthers jersey linebacker Thomas Davis jersey is “extremely irked” about reports that general manager Dave Gettleman’s firing was linked to negotiations for extensions for him and tight end Greg Olsen jersey jersey.

cyber monday anthony johnson jersey

Davis, 34, began negotiating an extension before Gettleman was fired on July 17, eight days before players reported to training camp at Wofford College.

anthony johnson cyber monday jersey

Panthers veterans Thomas Davis jersey, left, and Greg Olsen jersey jersey are still seeking contract extensions as training camp opens for Carolina. Jim Dedmon/Icon SportswireDavis said at no point were negotiations with Gettleman combative. Gettleman had a reputation for talks with some veteran players getting difficult in the past.

Wholesale Anthony Johnson jersey The most recent was last year when Gettleman rescinded the franchise tag of Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman jersey jersey, whose departure to Washington played a role in last year’s 6-10 season.

“To his credit, he told me to my face that he didn’t see a decline in my play,” Davis said on Wednesday. “He [said] he had never seen anything like it before for a guy my age.

“I guess it sort of put him in a tough position making a decision moving forward, but there was never a time where he said something negative to me about me as a player or me as a person.”

Multiple sources told that Gettleman’s handling of contracts in the past played a part in the decision to fire him, with Davis’ and Olsen’s extensions being discussed.

But Davis isn’t excited that some of the blame for Gettleman’s firing has been placed on him and Olsen, both team captains.

“Some of the stuff being said, it’s unbelievable to think of two guys that was being talked about,” said Davis, the 2014 Walter Payton jersey NFL Man of the Year. “You think about myself and you think about Greg Olsen jersey jersey and what we try to represent and stand for, not only as players but as pillars of the community as leaders of this football team, it was totally unfair and uncalled for some of the stuff that was being said.”

Olsen said on Monday that a wholesale jersey holdout for training camp at one point was on the table, but after the “chaos” surrounding Gettleman’s firing, he didn’t want to be a distraction.

Olsen said on Tuesday that there was no animosity between him and Gettleman.

“Obviously we might not always have seen eye to eye on things,” he said. “But as far as the respect level between the two of us, strictly, I didn’t ever think there was an issue.

“He treated me with respect and we gave him the respect in return.”

Olsen, 32, has two years left on his deal. He said there have been no guarantees from Hurney or the Panthers he will get an extension this year that would make him among the top-paid tight ends in the league.

Olsen, the first tight end in NFL history to have three straight seasons with 1,000 yards receiving, ranks seventh in the league among tight ends with an average salary of $7.5 million a year.

Olsen indicated he might have to play out his contract.

All indications are that Davis, entering the final year of his contract, will get a new deal.

“It’s not something that is going to happen overnight,” said Davis, who has made the Pro Bowl the past two seasons. “I’m excited that we’re even in a position where we’re negotiating while I have this year left on my contract. For the organization, it’s something they don’t have to do. I’m excited they have chosen to do it.”

Texans hope to keep DeAndre Hopkins ‘here for a long time’

Cheap Josh Gordon jersey

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Entering the final season of his contract, Houston Texans jersey wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins jersey jersey is looking for a bounce-back season after his dip in production in 2016.

black friday josh gordon jersey

A year ago — after his 111-catch, 1,521-yard, 11-touchdown breakout performance in 2015 — Hopkins held out of training camp for one day because he wanted a contract extension. During the offseason, the wide receiver said he is leaving contract negotiations up to his agent and the Texans. General manager Rick Smith said he likes to keep his negotiations “in-house,” while making it clear he wants to re-sign Hopkins and that he is hopeful the young receiver will be in Houston “for a long time.”

josh gordon black friday jersey

Hopkins finished the 2016 season with 78 receptions for 954 yards and five touchdowns. He was targeted 150 times last season, after 192 in 2015. The primary reason for the decrease was the play of quarterback Brock Osweiler jersey, who targeted him just 24 percent of the time, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Though a small sample size, Tom Savage jersey jersey — currently wholesale jersey considered the 2017 starting quarterback — targeted Hopkins on 30 percent of his passes.

Cheap Josh Gordon jersey Hopkins has caught passes from nine different quarterbacks in his four seasons with the Texans. In 2017 he hopes to finally get some stability at quarterback from either Savage or rookie Deshaun Watson jersey.

One area Hopkins needs to improve upon is his yards after the catch. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Hopkins’ 2.3 yards after the catch over the past two seasons ranks second-worst in the NFL among 156 qualified receivers.

During the offseason, Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said although Hopkins’ statistics dropped off, he still made some big plays for the Texans last season, especially on third down and in the red zone. And while those contributions were important to the team, both Hopkins and the Texans hopes he can return to the neighborhood of his 2015 statistics.
