Best fits for top NFL free agents still on the market



Cheap Josh Evans jersey

Training camps have opened around the NFL with the best intentions. Teams have spent months building what they hope are disaster-proof rosters. Should a catastrophe ensue, or an offseason projection simply fall short, a handful of veteran free agents remain available to help.

black friday josh evans jersey

Editor’s PicksWhy NFL teams will settle for less talent at backup QB”They talk about competition at every position, but obviously there is not,” an NFL defensive coach says. Why do teams sometimes employ No. 2 QBs who possess limited appeal in the present and no upside for the future?

josh evans black friday jersey

Let’s take a look at the best of them, as of Tuesday morning, and then take a stab at pairing them with a possible destination(s).

Cheap Josh Evans jersey 1. Colin Kaepernick jersey, quarterbackThe verdict has seemed clear for a while now: No team judges Kaepernick’s skills highly enough to supplant either its distaste for his 2016 anthem protest or the public attention it would presumably garner in 2017. Fair or otherwise, that’s how most teams operate. But Kaepernick is by far the best unsigned option at the position. It might take an injury or depth-chart failure for a team to make the move, however.

Best fit: Seattle Seahawks jersey, who showed interest in June and would be derelict to leave their Super Bowl hopes in the hands of Trevone Boykin or Austin Davis jersey should Russell Wilson jersey be injured. Kaepernick is also a better quarterback than anyone on the New York Jets jersey’ roster.

2. Robert Griffin III jersey, quarterbackThe wholesale jersey Kaepernick drama has overshadowed scant Griffin’s struggle to find a job, five years after he was the draft’s No. 2 overall pick. The league’s hesitance is understandable; Griffin has encountered injuries throughout his career and has never looked comfortable outside the unsustainable read option structure. What has he done to suggest he is more than what we’ve seen? He is only 27, but does any coach have the skill, time and interest necessary to elevate him? The Cleveland Browns jersey’ Hue Jackson thought he did last season.

Best fit: The Seahawks make sense. The Los Angeles Chargers jersey also have expressed some interest, which is half the battle.

3. Nick Mangold jersey, centerBoth Mangold and potential suitors have taken a patient approach as his rehabilitation from a foot injury has extended into the summer. There is rarely a rush to sign a 33-year-old center, and his market is likely to form after the first wave of training camp injuries. Most league observers believe he has at least another year left in the tank.

Best fit: The Miami Dolphins jersey’ interest is understandable given the uncertain status of starter Mike Pouncey jersey jersey. Veterans such as Mangold, especially those who played in the AFC East, also have a funny way of ending up with the New England Patriots jersey.

4. Gary Barnidge jersey jersey, tight endThe Browns put Barnidge in a tough spot, retaining his rights until after drafting his likely replacement (David Njoku jersey) in late April. Barnidge caught 134 passes over the past two seasons despite playing with eight different quarterbacks during that span, but at 31 no team has rushed to sign him. He can still help in the passing game and is a more consistent blocker than you might realize.

Best fit: Barnidge has visited the Buffalo Bills jersey and, more recently, Jacksonville Jaguars jersey following the trade of Julius Thomas jersey jersey jersey. If Barnidge can produce with the Browns’ quarterbacks, he shouldn’t have any issue doing so with Blake Bortles jersey jersey.

5. Brandon Flowers jersey, cornerbackIt’s rare to find a competent cover corner on the market this late, and Flowers represents one of the best hopes for those who want veteran depth. Flowers played only six games for the Chargers last season, in part because of a concussion he suffered in Week 10, and at 31, teams are taking a close look at his medical evaluation. But he has had discussions with the Patriots, and was also invited to visit the Arizona Cardinals jersey.

Best fit: Flowers could probably maximize his opportunity by waiting for the first wave of summer injuries. In Arizona, he would have a chance to compete for the No. 2 cornerback job opposite Patrick Peterson jersey jersey, an enviable spot on paper that in reality means a ton of throws his way as teams avoid Peterson.

It appears there’s little market for Darrelle Revis jersey because of his significant decline last season and questions about his desire. Brad Penner/USA TODAY Sports6. Darrelle Revis jersey, cornerbackA future Pro Football Hall of Fame player remains at home at the age of 32, even as teams sign inferior players such as Alterraun Verner jersey (Miami Dolphins jersey). The questions about Revis are more complicated. Why did his performance drop in 2016? Have his skills deteriorated that much? Or was it a lack of competitive interest? Regardless, any team with a need at cornerback this summer will have to consider him.

Best fit: Don’t overlook the Dolphins, even after their decision to sign Verner this week. And perhaps the Cardinals would consider him if Flowers proves not to be a fit.

7. Orlando Franklin jersey, offensive linemanThe Chargers, a team that seems perennially in need of offensive line depth, released Franklin in May after two years of injuries and uneven play following a five-year contract he signed in 2015. Few would argue that he was among the NFL’s most disappointing offensive linemen the past two years, but he is too big (6-foot-7, 330 pounds) and young (29) to fall off the radar entirely.

Best fit: Franklin visited with the Jets this week. Also, keep the Los Angeles Rams jersey in mind. The Rams’ new personnel executive, Brian Xanders, drafted Franklin for the Denver Broncos jersey in 2011.

8. Anquan Boldin jersey jersey, wide receiverBoldin, 36, had a productive year in Detroit last season and has proved exceptionally durable as his career advanced. He has played in at least 14 games in every season since he turned 30, and there is every reason to believe he can help a team’s intermediate passing game.

Best fit: He visited the Bills and has a rapport with quarterback Tyrod Taylor jersey jersey, dating to their days with the Baltimore Ravens jersey.

9. DeAngelo Williams jersey, running backAt 34, Williams is ancient for a running back. His wrestling debut earlier this month suggests he is at least thinking about a post-football career. But it also demonstrated he is still in good shape, and to be fair, he carried the ball nearly 300 times during the past two seasons in Pittsburgh. He still wants to play, except not for a few teams, and some coach is likely to prefer his experience when it comes time to enhance depth.

Best fit: Don’t rule out the Steelers, who know how valuable Williams can be in the backfield.

10. Dwight Freeney jersey, defensive endFreeney has squeezed four post-Colts seasons out of his career, and if anything, we have learned there is always room in the NFL for an effective situational pass-rusher. It’s difficult to believe there won’t be some team that expresses interest over the course of the summer.

Best fit: The Atlanta Falcons jersey have moved on — for now. An injury or two along their defensive line could make his phone ring. The Falcons know what kind of impact he can have.

Falcons’ stadium roof will be closed for home opener vs. Packers



Wholesale David Yankey jersey

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Falcons jersey will play their first regular-season game inside the new $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium with the roof closed.

cyber monday david yankey jersey

Officials said the retractable roof of the stadium, which was left opened during a media tour Tuesday, still has to go through a process before the roof can remain open for an entire football game. Falcons team president Rich McKay explained the roof has to be “fully mechanized” and that such a process could take 40 working days from now, which means the roof will be closed for the preseason games and probably the start of the regular season.

david yankey cyber monday jersey

The roof can be operated now one petal at a time, but more fine-tuning and adjusting needs to be made to make all the petals work with one push of a button. The roof is made up of 27,500 tons of steel, 3,500 of which make up the roof petals. Each petal will move independently of each other.

Wholesale David Yankey jersey The roof of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be closed for preseason games and probably the start of the regular season as construction workers get the roof “fully mechanized” to remain open for an entire football game. Vaughn McClure/ESPNThe Falcons are scheduled to open the new stadium with an Aug. 26 preseason matchup with the Arizona Cardinals jersey, which falls inside the 40-day window.

“From a temperature standpoint and from an operational standpoint, it’s probably the right thing to do,” McKay told ESPN.

The Falcons’ fourth and final preseason game, an Aug. 31 home matchup with Jacksonville, also occurs inside the 40-day window. Although the Sept. 17 home opener is outside of the 40-day window, officials clarified that putting finishing touches on the roof won’t occur in 40 consecutive days. The workflow will be interrupted by certain blackout dates such as the Falcons’ preseason games, Atlanta United MLS soccer matches, the Chick-Fil-A college kickoff football games in the first week of September (Alabama vs Florida State, Georgia Tech vs. Tennessee), private events and the possibility of weather delays.

In addition, construction workers have to complete duties such as power washing the digital boards, which can’t occur with the roof open. That also would eat into time to work on the roof.

There has been no timeline placed on when the roof will be fully mechanized. Essentially, October appears to be a more realistic goal for the Falcons to play a game with the Mercedes-Benz Stadium roof open, if it’s not too hot or not raining at that time. The Falcons host the Buffalo Bills jersey Oct. 1 and the Miami Dolphins jersey Oct. 15.

Officials insist the roof is not a major issue.

“We’re feeling great about where we are,” said Scott Jenkins, the general manager of the stadium.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn was asked last month if he’d prefer the roof to be opened or closed.

“I prefer a roof opened,” Quinn told ESPN. “You know those days where you say, ‘Man, this is a day for some football’? If it’s the idealistic setting or it’s ideal football weather where you feel the crispness, I prefer that roof to be open. If it’s lightning and it’s raining, I’d say, ‘You know what? Let’s go inside.”

The process of opening and closing the roof typically takes 12 minutes but can be sped up to 10 minutes. A decision on having the roof opened or closed has to be made 90 minutes before kickoff. Temperatures in the 80s typically will result in the roof being closed, McKay said.

The process of installing the field already began Tuesday, earlier than expected. That process is expected to be completed by Aug. 5, if not wholesale jersey sooner.

“People traditionally will say a turf like that it anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million,” McKay said. “They are very good at it. They did the Georgia Dome. They did our practice field. FieldTurf is everywhere. … They know how to get the product installed.”

Don’t sleep on these steady fantasy football players

Players who fit the description of “steady” performers aren’t merely those who grade well in terms of consistency metrics, such as those found in my Consistency Ratings. Those measures do generally identify the game’s most reliable players, but role changes and injuries have an impact, so each player’s entire profile should be considered.

Wholesale Kawann Short jersey Each steady performer includes “Tristan’s ADP take,” listing the player’s ADP in ESPN leagues as of July 24, as well as my opinion on how worthy the pick is at that spot.

Devonta Freeman jersey jersey, RB, Atlanta Falcons jersey: Since taking over as the Falcons’ starting running back in Week 3 of 2015, he has scored the second-most non-PPR (456.9) and PPR (576.9) fantasy points. Freeman’s path to getting there, however, reveals the kind of consistent approach that made him an underappreciated yet reliable weekly RB1 last season. Only six times in his 29 career starts has he posted a PPR score in single digits (with only three of those beneath eight points), and only four of Freeman’s non-PPR games have resulted in fewer than five fantasy points. His receiving ability, which fueled the third-best target total among running backs during that same time span, makes him one of the position’s most reliable weekly plays despite the presence of Tevin Coleman jersey jersey.

Tristan’s ADP take: 10th overall (10.6 average) is a completely fair spot to select Freeman, as he’s absolutely first-round material.2017 Fantasy Football Draft KitEverything you need to have a successful fantasy football season. Draft Kit

Pierre Garcon jersey, WR, San Francisco 49ers jersey: This one is speculating ahead more than it is drawing upon last season, though in Garcon’s defense, he was consistently closest to his fantasy points-per-game average (7.6 in non-PPR, 41st; 12.6 in PPR, 31st) among wide receivers in 2016. He’s highly likely to capture the team lead in targets in San Francisco. In fact, he could rival his numbers from 2013, when he finished as the No. 13 wide receiver in non-PPR and No. 11 in PPR fantasy points. Garcon is one of the more obvious low-ceiling, high-floor receivers on draft boards this year.

Tristan’s ADP take: 64th (69.0) is about right for Garcon.

Frank Gore jersey jersey, RB, Indianapolis Colts jersey: He’s now 34 years old and is coming off consecutive years with a yard-per-carry average below 4.00, but a look at the Colts’ running back depth chart shows a remarkable lack of competition for Gore’s carries. He has managed at least 15 carries in 20 of his 32 games since joining the Colts after the 2014 season, and is the only running back in football to have started all 32 games over the past two seasons. Despite his so-so rushing rates, he finished 10th in non-PPR and ninth in PPR fantasy scoring at his position during that two-year span. When it comes to Gore, the perception is that (mostly due to age) he’s a low-ceiling, low-floor performer. The truth is that he’s actually one of the higher-floor players at his position.

Tristan’s ADP take: 61st (66.5), or in the middle of the flex-play tier, is just about right.Editor’s PicksThese fantasy players could make or break your seasonBoom-or-bust players can make the difference between winning and losing your fantasy football leagues.

Jarvis Landry jersey jersey, WR, Miami Dolphins jersey: In the past two seasons, he has finished 13th and 16th among wide receivers in non-PPR fantasy points (and eighth and 14th in PPR fantasy points) despite the fact that he scored exactly four receiving touchdowns in each of those years. That’s a challenging feat to accomplish — only five other receivers this century have scored at least as many PPR fantasy points in a season with four or fewer receiving touchdowns — and it shows how stable a WR2 Landry can be on a weekly basis. It also demonstrates how much profit potential he has if he’s just a little bit luckier in the touchdown department in 2017.

Tristan’s ADP take: 34th (36.3) is solid value for Landry, who makes a case for a third-round pick in PPR.

Matt Ryan jersey jersey, QB, Atlanta Falcons jersey: He’s an obvious candidate for regression in 2017: Ryan put up a 69.9 percent completion rate, 7.1 percent touchdown rate and 9.3 yards-per-attempt rate last season, all of which were well above his career numbers (64.9, 4.7 and 7.4). The appeal with Ryan, however, is his consistency. From wholesale jersey 2014-16, he managed a fantasy point total between 15 and 22 on 20 occasions, third-most among quarterbacks; 13 of those occurred in 2014-15, good for sixth-best at the position. Although he’ll have a new offensive coordinator this season in Steve Sarkisian, Ryan shouldn’t see much change in an offense that returns most of its primary playmakers.

Tristan’s ADP take: 36th (42.3) is far too early a pick for my taste, as weekly upside rather than consistency is paramount in single-quarterback leagues. In leagues where Ryan lasts three-plus rounds longer, he’d be a welcome pick.

Delanie Walker jersey, TE, Tennessee Titans jersey: With many leagues moving to some variety of PPR (half- or full-point) scoring in recent years, Walker has become an increasingly handy and often underrated asset in such formats. In the past three seasons combined, he has 333 targets, 38 shy of Greg Olsen jersey jersey for the position lead despite playing three fewer games than Olsen. What’s more, Walker has managed at least five targets in 37 of 45 games played during that time, and at least eight targets in 21 contests, showing how high his weekly statistical floor is. Though the Titans have added some weapons to their receiving corps during the offseason that could cut into Walker’s target total, he’s still an integral part of their game plan. Moreover, a healthy year from Marcus Mariota jersey could result in a sizable step forward in terms of team pass attempts (504 last season, 28th in the NFL).

Tristan’s ADP take: 59th (63.5) is great value for Walker, who annually seems to get overlooked.

Dolphins sign Alterraun Verner, place Koa Misi on IR



Wholesale Lamarcus Joyner jersey

DAVIE, Fla. — The Miami Dolphins jersey signed veteran cornerback Alterraun Verner jersey two days before the start of training camp, the team announced on Tuesday.

cyber monday lamarcus joyner jersey

To make room for the move, Miami placed former starting linebacker Koa Misi jersey jersey on injured reserve. Misi is still recovering from a neck injury that forced him to miss 13 games last season.

lamarcus joyner cyber monday jersey

The Dolphins were looking for veteran depth in the secondary before training camp and worked out several cornerbacks in recent days.

Wholesale Lamarcus Joyner jersey “So many people tell me you can’t find enough corners,” Dolphins coach Adam Gase said earlier Tuesday before signing Verner. “So we’re checking guys out, but we do that quite a bit with a lot of positions.”

Alterraun Verner jersey will continue his NFL career in Florida with the Dolphins instead of the Buccaneers, who released him earlier this year. Cliff Welch/Icon SportswireMisi underwent surgery on his neck in the offseason. He accepted a pay cut earlier this season to stay with the team.

The Buccaneers released Verner on Feb. 23. He started just three games during the 2016 season.

The arrival of cornerback Vernon Hargreaves, who was drafted 11th overall last year, and the signing of Brent Grimes jersey jersey had signified that the Buccaneers would likely part ways with Verner under defensive coordinator Mike Smith.

Verner’s best game last season came when, just 48 hours after his father died of a heart attack, he recorded an interception and two pass breakups in the Bucs’ 14-5 win over the Seattle Seahawks jersey.

ESPN’s Jenna Laine contributed to this report.

Saints to put Dannell Ellerbe on IR, cut him once foot heals



Wholesale Jadeveon Clowney jersey

METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints jersey plan to cut veteran linebacker Dannell Ellerbe jersey jersey once he heals from a minor foot injury, a source confirmed to ESPN.

cyber monday jadeveon clowney jersey

Ellerbe, 31, will be placed on injured reserve to start wholesale jersey training camp. But the source said he is expected to be healthy within about three weeks.

jadeveon clowney cyber monday jersey

Ellerbe’s loss is a disappointment because he had been a dynamic playmaker at times when healthy over the past two years. But it won’t be a devastating blow for the Saints, who loaded up on linebacker depth this offseason and adapted to playing without Ellerbe as he dealt with a series of nagging injuries.

Wholesale Jadeveon Clowney jersey Ellerbe’s promising career has been derailed by injuries over the past four years with the Miami Dolphins jersey and Saints.

Dannell Ellerbe jersey jersey has missed 17 games for the Saints over the past two years due to hip, toe and quad injuries. Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesHe reached his peak as a key member of the Baltimore Ravens jersey’ 2012 Super Bowl championship team, then signed a $35 million contract with Miami in 2013. But he missed 15 games for the Dolphins with a major hip injury in 2014. Then, after being traded to New Orleans in 2015, Ellerbe missed a combined 17 games as a result of hip, toe and quad injuries.

Ellerbe had 83 tackles, four sacks and a forced fumble in two years with the Saints. In his eight-year career, he has 368 tackles, 10.5 sacks, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. He also had an interception in the AFC Championship Game during Baltimore’s Super Bowl run.

The Saints made linebacker depth a priority this offseason, signing veterans A.J. Klein jersey jersey jersey and Manti Te’o jersey in free agency, then drafting Florida’s Alex Anzalone jersey in the third round. Klein, Te’o and Craig Robertson jersey are expected to compete for the starting middle linebacker job, with all three of them candidates to replace Ellerbe as the starting weakside linebacker. Backups Nate Stupar jersey, Stephone Anthony jersey jersey and Michael Mauti jersey jersey will also compete for roles on defense and special teams.

The Saints also signed third-year player Kristjan Sokoli on Tuesday, his agent Brett Tessler said on Twitter. Sokoli, 25, spent the past two years with the Seattle Seahawks jersey and Indianapolis Colts jersey, appearing in just one game. He has primarily played on the defensive line, but the Saints plan to convert the 6-foot-5, 300-pounder to the offensive line.

New Orleans also signed veteran offensive lineman Martin Wallace jersey, his agent said on Twitter, and undrafted rookie cornerback Dejaun Butler. Wallace, 27, has bounced around the NFL since originally signing with the Cleveland Browns jersey as an undrafted rookie in 2013, appearing in only one career game. Butler, who played at Hawaii, auditioned with the Saints during minicamp tryouts this summer.
