cheap jersey shop 15 deadline

  • NFL moves deadline to sign franchise-tagged players NFL moves deadline to sign franchise-tagged players The deadline for franchise-tagged players to agree to long-term contracts has been pushed back two days, until July 17. The NFL confirmed the deadline was pushed back from Saturday, July 15, until Monday, July 17. ESPN first reported the date change. Per the collective bargaining agreement, if the normal July cheap jersey shop 15 deadline falls on a Saturday or Sunday, it is moved to the ensuing Monday. Once the deadline passes, teams cannot negotiate long-term contracts with franchise-tagged players. In the grand scheme of things, the two-day change might not mean much. But it will give the agents for franchised players such as Le'Veon Bell and Kirk Cousins, who have yet to sign their tenders, a couple of extra days to negotiate before the window closes. In the NFL, deadlines spur action. The deadline for Bell and Cousins is now July 17. Eric Decker calls union with Titans a 'perfect storm' The newest member of the Titans made the absolute best of a bad situation. Eric Decker was a late release by the woebegone Jets earlier this month, took one visit to his now-hometown Tennessee Titans in Nashville and and signed a contract with a team that could very well end up making the playoffs in 2017. "It was kind of a perfect storm," Decker said, via the club's official site. "You only get so many years to play this game, and I wanted to find the right fit. I wanted to come to a place where I can help out, and this is home." He added: "There were a lot of factors. This is a team on the rise, and I like the coaching staff, the GM, and the philosophy upstairs. I like the quarterback, the locker room and the mentality. When I talked to the GM and the coaches, finding out what they wanted out of me, what my role would be, Tennessee was the best opportunity." Decker went from playing in a rebuild to being a part of one of the league's cheap jerseys most dynamic offenses. Tennessee has invested heavily in the receiver position this offseason to diversify Marcus Mariota's set of targets -- something that could provide Decker with a few more favorable matchups than he's used to. This was one of the few late spring acquisitions -- much like Jeremy Maclin to the Wholesale Jerseys Ravens -- that simply made sense. While first-round pick Corey Davis is the future, it doesn't hurt to provide him with a solid running mate.
