Patrick Peterson's teammates think he's having best training camp of his career

Usually by the time a quarterback has been in training camp for three full weeks,Authentic Will Fuller V Jersey, he's ready to face a defense -- any defense -- other than his team's.

Not Carson Palmer.

The 37-year-old Arizona Cardinals quarterback has practiced against his defensive teammates 14 times since reporting July 21. But Palmer isn't aching or yearning to throw against the Oakland Raiders on Saturday night. womens T.Y. Hilton Jersey,He has been getting pushed enough by his own defense, which has some of the league's best players at specific positions.

"It's such a great challenge going against our defense when we see so many different things,Authentic Blake Bortles Jersey, you know at least," Palmer said. "There are days when you just don't know what you're going to see. At least in games, 'This is the kind of scheme they're going to run.' You know what to expect.

or they're trying completely different things,"There's days when we see completely different fronts or things we haven't covered, so it's a tremendous challenge."

Robert Nkemdiche up the middle,Every day, Haason Reddick at inside linebacker, Palmer is facing the likes of Chandler Jones and Markus Golden off the edge, Tyrann Mathieu at safety and Patrick Peterson at cornerback. ,Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey,"That's half of a perennial Pro Bowl defense staring across at Palmer every day.

But none of them are having as good a camp as Peterson.

Once Palmer said he feels Peterson is having the best training camp he has seen from the six-time Pro Bowl cornerback,Authentic Duane Brow Jersey, anyone asked about it fell in line with the same belief.

"This is the best I've seen him,Authentic Whitney Mercilus Jersey Palmer said. "I told him that the other day."

in his seventh season,To which Peterson responded that,Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey, he's like a fine wine. He ages well.

" Palmer said. "He's contested every single ball. Not that he's broken up every pass,"He's just had great practice after great practice,Authentic Vontae Davis Jersey,Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey, but he's right on top of it."

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians quickly agreed with Palmer's assessment of Peterson's camp.womens Blake Bortles Jersey,

"He's in fantastic condition," Arians said.womens Allen Robinson Jersey

that he’s The Next Big Thing. Jones’ second OHL season was limited to 33 games, a broken arm keeping him out six weeks. womens Vontae Davis Jersey,It wasn’t the only interruption.

after making him the 24th overall selection,A 10-game suspension for cross-checking in February was added to his rap sheet after his much-publicized ban for a vicious blindside hit during the 2016 playoffs. On draft night, womens Will Fuller V Jersey,Ducks GM Bob Murray said Jones was immature and “had to grow up a little bit.”womens Duane Brow Jersey,

But the second season carried a strong finish with impact throughout his two-round stay in the OHL postseason. Jones then got a taste of the next level when the Ducks brought him to the San Diego Gulls for the American Hockey League’s Calder Cup playoffs. It only made him hungrier.

“Going to San Diego, ears open,” Jones said. “It was my first pro experience. I was trying to keep my eyes open, it was a real eye-opener, mouth closed and just kind of be aware of my surroundings. When I stepped on the ice to play,womens Whitney Mercilus Jersey,it was just like I did 100 times in the season. I just kept doing what I do.

“Kept my pregame rituals the same. Obviously the game’s a little more different. More fast. It came to me pretty easily, pretty quickly. womens Andrew Luck Jersey,I started producing as much as I could. Obviously I wished I could play there but I can’t. So it’s either Anaheim or London now.”

Pacific Peeks: Coyotes are the division’s most improved team

The San Jose Sharks were not the only team to say goodbye to its longest-tenured, and the only remaining player to move with the Winnipeg Jets to Arizona is no longer a desert dog., highest-scoring player ever this offseason. The Arizona Coyotes parted ways with longtime captain Shane Doan

who’d been in Arizona since 2011,womens Mike Williams Jersey, Alexander Burmistrov, to Calgary. Radim Vrbata,womens Forrest Lamp Jersey, Josh Jooris,womens Dan Feeney Jersey, and they also parted ways with longtime coach Dave Tippet,womens Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey,Doan’s desert departure began an offseason of fundamental change. The team traded 34-year-old goaltender Mike Smith, and Peter Holland all walked away in free agency. Oh,Authentic Cooper Kupp Jersey, replacing him with Penguins assistant Rick Tocchet.

It was an aggressive pair of moves from General Manager John Chayka,womens Josh Reynolds Jersey,Getting rid of their captain, draft day trades. Arizona acquired center Derek Stepan and goaltender Antti Raanta from the New York Rangers, and both will improve Arizona.

Stepan may not be a true number one center, and will be a nice complement to fellow Swede Oliver Ekman-Larsson at the top of Arizona’s defensive depth chart., but he’s a substantial upgrade over what the Coyotes had last season, comparable goaltending at a much cheaper price this season before becoming an unrestricted free agent next July. Hjalmarsson is an elite shutdown defenseman, and he will take some of the pressure off of 2015 third overall pick Dylan Strome as he tries to lock down a regular spot in the NHL. Raanta is seven years younger than Smith and will provide, at worstAuthentic Gerald Everett Jersey,

If there was a time to be aggressive,Chayka paid a heavy price acquiring Stepan, and young players Laurent Dauphin and Connor Murphy. But the Coyotes have an embarrassment of riches in their prospect pipeline,womens Gerald Everett Jersey, it was during this offseason.

These changes may not be enough for Arizona to return to the postseason for the first time since 2012,womens John Johnson Jersey, but they’re far closer than they were entering the offseason. If Strome and winger Clayton Keller emerge as reliable top six options, Arizona may do more than just knock on the door.,Authentic Josh Reynolds Jersey, while the rest of the young core continues to take strides

Why don’t NHL stars change teams like they do in the NBA?

It was a bizarre, childish and stupid reaction to a situation over which Thomas had no control. womens Kamalei Correa Jersey, He turned himself into an All-Star guard for the Celtics and helped them reach the conference finals.

however,Lost in that series of critical tweets by James, is an underlying cultural difference between the NBA and NHL (and you can’t miss the references to James’ own history contained within those tweets).

the idea of switching teams is commonplace for superstars and the teams that draft them.Authentic Ronnie Stanley Jersey,  In the NHL,In the NBA, it almost never happens.

Of the last 12 NHL MVPs (since the 2004-05 lockout),womens Deion Jones Jersey, only one has played for more than one team. Boston traded Joe Thornton to San Jose during his 2005-06 MVP season.

four of the eight players who have won the MVP award have played for different teams. Granted,womens Austin Hooper Jersey, Derrick Rose was never the same player after his knee injury with Chicago, L.A. Lakers),but Steve Nash (Phoenix, Dallas,Phoenix,womens Bronson Kaufusi Jersey, James (Cleveland,womens Maxx Williams Jersey,Over the same period in the NBA, Miami, Cleveland) and Kevin Durant (Seattle/Oklahoma City, Golden State) were all at the height of their games when they changed hands.

the New York Islanders traded defenseman Zdeno Chara to Ottawa in 2001 and he later signed with Boston; Marian Hossa changed hands four times (Ottawa to Atlanta, Pittsburgh,There have been some instances of great NHL players changing hands in their primes. The most notable one came when the Edmonton Oilers traded Wayne Gretzky to Los Angeles in 1988. More recently, Detroit, Chicago);womens Ronnie Stanley Jersey,  Minnesota traded Brent Burns to San Jose in 2011; Boston traded Tyler Seguin to Dallas in 2013; and Edmonton traded Taylor Hall to New Jersey in 2016.

add Thomas’s name to the dizzying list of NBA All-Stars who have changed hands in the last few years, Gordon Hayward, from James and Durant to James Harden, Paul George, LaMarcus Aldridge,Authentic Deion Jones Jersey,By contrast,Authentic Jalen Collins Jersey, Pau Gasol,womens Jalen Collins Jersey,Chris Paul and Jimmy Butler.

James is entering the final year of his contract in Cleveland and it is widely assumed he will leave again.

four years for other teams’ free agents. For the NHL, the lengths are eight and seven years,Authentic Kamalei Correa Jersey,Part of the gap between the leagues’ practices may be explained by the length of NBA and NHL contracts. Teams can re-sign their own players to a maximum of five years,Authentic Bronson Kaufusi Jersey,respectively.

Having a player under contract for a longer period of time clearly ensures he’ll play more of his prime with the same team, but it doesn’t explain trades and it doesn’t explain why so many of the NBA’s top players have been anxious to get to the free market.Authentic Austin Hooper Jersey,

but he stayed for a little more money and a better tax situation… and out of loyalty. John Tavares can become a free agent next summer,womens Breshad Perriman Jersey,Steven Stamkos had a chance to leave Tampa Bay, but most analysts believe he will re-sign with the Islanders despite their uncertain future. Most players don’t even make it that far before their teams re-sign them.

whether it is the marketing campaigns or the media coverage, so why wouldn’t players think more in individual terms?Authentic Breshad Perriman Jersey,  The NHL pushes a team-first mentality where loyalty is valued. You can make the argument that NBA players are more selfish,The NBA has always focused more on the individuals, or you can make the argument that NHL players are more na?ve because their business will still treat them like a commodity when all is said and done.

and they know they will ultimately be measured by how many championships they win. You can make a strong argument that James’ titles in Miami and Durant’s title in Golden State are diminished by the lack of true challenge they created when going to those star-laden teams,The other reality in the NBA is that only a handful of teams have a chance to win a title every year. The players know this, but both still have the rings.

Predicting which teams will win in the NHL is much more difficult. Authentic Maxx Williams Jersey,One player cannot affect a game that regularly uses 19 players as much as a game that uses eight or nine. Low seeds have won the Stanley Cup or played in the Cup Final in recent years.

Patrick Kane, Connor McDavid,Imagine how much more unpredictable the NHL would be if a similar culture of business and championship opportunity took hold with its players. Imagine Sidney Crosby, Auston Matthews or Erik Karlsson hitting the open market.

Imagine if they even tried…

NHL’s best players under age 25 for 2017: Jack Eichel ranks No. 8 on the verge of a contract year

This is SB Nation NHL’s top 25 players under age 25 series! We’ll be covering each player from No. 25 to No. 1 over the next few weeks leading up to training camp time. See the complete list and information on how the rankings were compiled.Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey,

Given the paths other young NHL stars have taken in their short time in the league,womens Jake Butt Jersey, but has since lived in Connor McDavid’s shadow as the perceived “runner up” to the Edmonton Oilers’ draft lottery win. In his two years in the NHL,womens Jordan Phillip Jersey, 20, Eichel, has seemingly fallen a step behind the pack. Authentic Jake Butt Jersey,Eichel was drafted as the second overall pick in 2015, Eichel has proved that he’s more than capable to stand in a class of his own.

In his rookie year, an ankle injury derailed the start of what was ultimately a prosperous sophomore season. Even though he missed 21 games due to injury, just four points behind the Sabres’ top scorer in 2015-16. womens Garett Bolles Jersey, Eichel followed his rookie season up with a 57 point season in 61 games, Eichel posted 56 points in 81 games, a pace that would have given him 77 points had he played a full 82-game slate. It’s also a pace that would have tied him for seventh place overall in the NHL with Leon Draisaitl among the league’s top point producers. Unfortunately,Authentic Xavier Woods Jersey, Eichel still led the Sabres in points.

Eichel and others will always fall short of the mark. Taking Eichel away from those comparisons and letting him stand on his own merits shows him to be a more-than-capable top-six center. It doesn’t help that,Authentic Garett Bolles Jersey, so far,When compared with McDavid,womens Demarcus Walker Jersey, Eichel has been saddled with an underperforming and poorly managed Sabres team that didn’t have the correct complementary pieces around their star.

With only a 9.9 shooting percentage,With a combined 113 points in 142 games,Authentic Brendan Langley Jersey, too,womens Chad Kelly Jersey,Eichel has produced quite consistently thanks to his breakout sophomore year. And he’s getting his chances, Eichel has seemingly done almost all that he can on a bad Sabres team.womens DeVante Parker Jersey

Given how he showed his talents last yearAuthentic DeVante Parker Jersey,, a big season may be in the cards for Eichel. And the Sabres will need him if they want to make the jump from rebuilders to contenders.

Foligno leads NHL vs. Docs event to benefit NEO Kids

was born with a congenital heart defect,Authentic Josh Jones Jersey,Foligno and Murray knew each other through a shared contractor in Sudbury, Milana,womens Montravius Adams Jersey, but when the Foligno's oldest child, the two came to connect with each other on a much deeper level.

the demands for treatment and regular checkups are plentiful. For the residents of Sudbury and northern Ontario,Authentic Julién Davenport Jersey,Through Milana's journey, the Foligno's came to learn that when you have a sick child, that can often mean a trip to Ottawa or Toronto that takes upwards of four hours in a car one-way.womens Julién Davenport Jersey,

Putting treatment options closer to the patient and in an environment built exclusively for children is what Neo Kids is all about.womens Josh Jones Jersey

"What Dr. Murray is trying to do in Sudbury is have more of a pediatric presence,"womens Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey,  Foligno said. "It's already so disruptive when your child is sick, you just want to be able to have some sort of normalcy, and that's what Neo Kids is trying to provide while you're going through treatment. Things like that are half the battle."

And so,womens Brad Kaaya Jersey,as Foligno came across teammates during the off-season,Authentic Kevin King Jersey, he invited them to join him for this year's game. The Jackets' captain wanted to reward the residents of Sudbury who have rallied behind the cause of Neo Kids by bringing NHL talent to the area in a personal forum.

Along with Harrington,womens Kevin King Jersey,Zach Werenski,Authentic Montravius Adams Jersey,Josh Anderson, and Boone Jenner headed to Sudbury to hang out for a few days and add their talents to a roster made up of NHL players and doctors from Neo Kids.

"It was fun that they mixed up the teams,womens Jamaal Williams Jersey," Harrington said. "It was pretty cool to play with some of the doctors and meet the men who, on a daily basis, are helping to save lives through research or surgery or hands on treatment. It was special for us."

Say Goodbye to David Pastrnak

it’s hardly surprising considering this is the same organization that traded away superstars Joe Thornton,Authentic Patrice Bergeron jersey,  it seems that there is a very real possibility that the Boston Bruins trade David Pastrnak away amidst the current contract negotiations between the two. While many fans in Boston are upset, Phil Kessel,According to NHL analyst Brian Lawton, and Tyler Seguin in the past 20 years. ,adidas Patrice Bergeron jersey,While many are upset about the prospect of trading Pastrnak, it might make sense for them to pull the trigger now.

Wayne Primeau, the Boston Bruins traded center Joe Thornton away for Marco Sturm,Authentic Shane Doan jersey, and Brad Stuart. Although all three are serviceable NHL players,adidas Oliver Ekman-Larsson jersey, Joe Thornton was better than those three combined. Thornton has had a 1,adidas Mike Smith jersey,000 point career and is playing good hockey at the age of 38. Primeau and Stuart were out of Boston after just two seasons,adidas Bobby Orr jersey,The Boston Bruins are notable for trading away offensively-talented superstars for less than exciting returns. In 2005,adidas Zdeno Chara jersey, while Sturm played five relatively uneventful seasons in Boston. You would think a trade of this magnitude would teach the Bruins front office to avoid making the same mistake again, but you would be wrong.

the Bruins made a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs in which they sent the uber talented Phil Kessel to Toronto for a first and second round pick in 2010 and a first round pick in 2011. This trade looked bad at first,Authentic Tuukka Rask jersey, as the Bruins were giving up one of their premiere goal scorers for draft picks. The trade looked better when two of those draft picks turned out to be young superstars Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton. But now the trade looks bad again,In 2009, as all three players selected with those draft picks are no longer members of the Bruins organization.

Reilly Smith, which was sending Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley to the Dallas Stars for Loui Eriksson, Matt FraserAuthentic Mike Smith jersey, This naturally transitions to the most recent awful trade the Bruins made in 2013, and Joe Morrow. This was on the heels of the Bruins second trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in three seasons and right as Seguin was beginning to make his case to be the cornerstone of the organization for years to come. So naturally,adidas Shane Doan jersey, the Bruins traded him away for four players that are all out of the organization just four years later.

and Joe Thornton playing at a remarkable level at the age of 38,Authentic Oliver Ekman-Larsson jersey,Seguin already amassing 306 points in just four seasons with the Stars (while still only 25),Authentic Bobby Orr jersey, it only makes sense for this team to screw it up once more and send the young and talented David Pastrnak to another team. If history repeats itself,Authentic Zdeno Chara jersey,then Bruins fans should expect some pucks and equipment in return for Pastrnakadidas Tuukka Rask jersey,With Kessel winning two Stanley Cups, which will be great for a team than currently sits in no man’s’ land in the shifting NHL landscape. My one request is that the organization pulls this trade off soon to avoid allowing the fans to get too attached to Pastrnak. Looking at the list of skilled forwards this organization has traded away previously, we all know exactly how this story ends.

The season is new for many reasons, a season in which no team has won or lost any game of any significance.,Authentic Patrick Roy jersey, it is new primarily because it represents the start of a season in which they have not lost the Super Bowl

So forget about last season, the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots are turning training camp into a party—complete with the return of Gronk and the parading of actual goats to mark Tom Brady’s birthday. But here in Atlanta, there is no revelry,adidas Nathan MacKinnon jersey, the Falcons say, one after the other, Falcons players stand before reporters and practice amnesia., the humidity just shy of malevolence.

They’d shut out the Pats through much of the first half, and just when it looked like New England was putting together a scoring drive,Authentic Corey Crawford jersey, the Falcons had their now-famously surmountable lead: 28-3., cornerback Robert Alford jumped a quick slant pass to Danny Amendola and took it 82 yards the other way for a touchdown.

CARL DAVIS MAKES STRONG FINAL STATEMENT IN BID FOR ROSTER SPOT

The former third-round pick came up with his biggest play of the preseason in the finale against the New Orleans Saints.

Carl Davis’ preseason trips to New Orleans have been quite memorable – for very different reasons.adidas Jonathan Toews jersey,

The defensive lineman suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the game there last year,Authentic Duncan Keith jersey, which was also the preseason finale. This year, he came up with his biggest play of the preseason by picking off a pass to make a strong case for a spot on 53-man roster.

“I was thinking how last year I was in the locker room just watching,Authentic Jonathan Toews jersey,” Davis said after Thursday’s victory. “It kind of got me fired up and I’m like, ‘Hey I am going to go out here and make some plays, just play hard as I can tonight.’ That’s what I did.”

Davis’ effort was evident,Authentic Johnny Gaudreau jersey, and he showed his athleticism with his first-quarter interception of quarterback Chase Daniel. Davis dropped back into coverage on the play and snared the pass near the line of scrimmage,adidas Sean Monahan jersey, and he looked like a natural ball carrier once he got his hands on the football.

He returned the interception to the 7-yard line, and was still kicking himself after the game for not getting all the way into the end zone. Davis joked that the last time he had an interception was in high school,Authentic Justin Faulk jersey, but he ran that in for a score.

“I kind of saw daylight,Authentic Jeff Skinner jersey, but then the quarterback came out of nowhere,” Davis said. “I just wanted to make sure I didn’t fumble. I was going to try to get there, but I got cut down.”

and the emergence of undrafted rookie Patrick Ricard has made the group even deeper. Authentic Jordan Staal jersey, Ricard also helped himself Thursday by blocking a field goal and playing well in his reps at fullback.,Davis entered the preseason finale in the middle of a deep competition for the last few roster spots among defensive linemen. Davis and last year’s fourth-round pick Willie Henry are both vying for jobs

and the Ravens must decide over the next 24 hours if they have space for all of them on the active squad.,adidas Duncan Keith jersey,,The Ravens have eight defensive linemen on the 90-man roster

“That’s something I think about every day,adidas Johnny Gaudreau jersey,” Davis said about the defensive line depth. “I wake up in the morning thinking about [it]. I am trying to make the team,Authentic Sean Monahan jersey,so is everybody else. At the end of the day,adidas Jordan Staal jersey, you guys have to go out there and play football and give it your all.”

Chargers QB Cardale Jones cramming for final test in possible start vs. 49ers

Coach Anthony Lynn will get once last chance to watch young quarterback Cardale Jones compete in a game situation when the Los Angeles Chargers face the San Francisco 49ers on the road in the final game of exhibition play.

but it’s likely the Ohio State product will get plenty of snaps as the Chargers try to speed up the development of the second-year pro.,Authentic Alex Smith Jersey,Lynn would not say whether Jones will start in this one

Jones described learning the offense like an intensive study for a test in college.,womens Justin Houston Jersey,With the Chargers for about a month after the team secured him in a trade with the Buffalo Bills

” Jones said. “So I’m just trying to keep learning and cramming as much as I can in this short window of time. And I’m going to be ready.”,“I’ve been in the NFL for a year and a half and I’ve learned three offenses already

Lynn said starting quarterback Philip Rivers will not play Thursday, Kellen Clemens and Mike Bercovici has not been decided., but the rest of the quarterback rotation among Jones

“We’ve got three guys who have an opportunity to play,” Lynn said., and we’ll see

Through three games,Authentic Vontae Davis Jersey, Jones is 18-of-37 passing (49 percent) for 185 yards,Authentic Blake Bortles Jersey, posting a 40.9 passer rating.,Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey, no touchdowns and two interceptions. Jones has been sacked six times

Those numbers are representative of a player that has only been in the offense for a month. However,Authentic Jalen Ramsey Jersey,and wants to see more improvement in that area.,womens Tyreek Hill Jersey, Lynn said he’s sees an aptitude in Jones’ overall mechanics of running the offense

” Lynn said. “And just his second vision and seeing the big picture -- a couple things took place last week that I want our quarterback to see and prevent. But he’s doing well.”,“Just to keep getting better and have a command of our offense at the line of scrimmage and in the huddleAuthentic Tyreek Hill Jersey

Asked if Jones had a chance to overtake Clemens as the No. 2 quarterback, I wouldn’t say that. But we’re still looking at everything and every position. We’ll see.”, Lynn said: “No

Jones says he’s not concerned about the stressful process.Authentic Justin Houston Jersey,

“I don’t think there’s pressure, playing within the offense and we’ll have success.”,” Jones said. “I think guys go back to the basics of playing within themselveswomens Alex Smith Jersey

Veteran tight end Antonio Gates had to fight to make the roster as an undrafted rookie out of Kent State when he joined the Chargers in 2003 and understands the stress players like Jones are under. womens Jalen Ramsey Jersey,Gates offered some sage advice for players battling for a spot at the back end of the roster.

Cardale Jones still playing catch-up on Chargers’ QB depth chart

A month into his stint as a Chargers quarterback, Cardale Jones remains a work in progress.

” Coach Anthony Lynn said two weeks ago. “When he’s cold,“When he’s hot, it’s a beautiful thing, he’s off a little bit. But he’s still learning the system.”

that assessment still rings true. Acquired by trade just before the start of training camp,womens Kendall Wright Jersey,With just one preseason game left,Authentic Connor Shaw Jersey, playing 31 snaps,Authentic Jeff Driskel Jersey, Jones saw his most extensive action yet during Saturday’s 21-19 win over the Rams,Authentic Nolan CarrollJersey, and throwing for 74 yards and one interception. It was the first time this month that he connected on more than half his pass attempts (9 of 13).

something that gave Lynn a better chance to properly evaluate the former fourth-round pick. Incumbent backup Kellen Clemens watched from the sideline at the Coliseum,womens Nolan CarrollJersey,Not coincidentally,Authentic Jason Witten Jersey, it was the first time Jones got a chance to play behind the first-string offensive line, and could do so again this Thursday against the 49ers.

“I’m just trying to get Cardale caught up,” Lynn said. “Just so that he can have a fair chance.”

for example,Lynn didn’t think Jones got enough help in a preseason loss to the Saints a week earlier. The 6-foot-5 quarterback led the Chargers into the red zone that day, but the drive ended abruptly on a receiver’s fumble. Blame could also be shared on some of miscues this past Saturday. Jones’ interception, was thrown a bit inside of receiver Travis Benjamin — but Benjamin did little to keep Rams defensive back Dominique Hatfield from ripping the ball away.

Putting Jones behind starting linemen such as Russell Okung and Matt Slauson on Saturday gave him more time to throw. But extra post-practice reps have helped have also helped him absorb the playbook. Traded by the Bills last month for a conditional seventh-round pick, while undrafted quarterback Mike Bercovici is in his second offseason with the Chargers., Jones arrived in Southern California in catch-up mode: Philip Rivers and Clemens have both been in the league for over a decade

“Naturally, you’re going to feel behind,” Jones said. “Naturally,Authentic Markus Wheatont Jersey, you’re going to feel like they’ve got to kind of spoon-feed you in the beginning.”

He credited Clemens and quarterback coach Shane Steichen for fostering his growth,womens Markus Wheatont Jersey, Jones admitted that he felt “starstruck” the first time he met the six-time Pro Bowler.,womens Connor Shaw Jersey, but perhaps no one has been as instrumental as Rivers. Shortly after joining the Chargers

“He knows so much,Authentic Dak Prescott Jersey, Jones said Saturday. “He’s been in this league forever. Any insight that he has — sometimes he gives me answers that are above my knowledge at points.”

It seems unlikely that Jones will leapfrog Clemens for the No. 2 job by the start of the season. A 34-year-old career backup,womens Dak Prescott Jersey, the latter offers stability and consistency,womens Jason Witten Jersey, traits that are valuable in the quarterback room even if he never plays a snap. But Lynn also coached Jones in Buffalo, and clearly sees potential in the former Ohio State star.

Even if he isn’t ready for regular-season snaps, Jones could convince Chargers to keep a third quarterback on their roster — which must by trimmed down to 53 by 1 p.m. this Saturday. He’s doing his best to make that an easier choice.womens Jeff Driskel Jersey,”

“It helps that the head guy believes in you and wants you here, “but it’s all about putting in the time.”,” Jones said

Bills trade Cardale Jones to Chargers for conditional draft pick

the Buffalo Bills shook up their quarterback depth chart July 26 by trading Cardale Jones to the Los Angeles Chargers for a conditional draft pick.,womens Quincy Wilson Jersey,With their first practice of training camp less than 24 hours away

who joined the Bills last year as a fourth-round choice from Ohio State,Jones, seemingly was a long-shot to make the Buffalo roster.

He received the fewest practice reps during off-season workouts, as the Bills clearly created a two-way competition between T.J. Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman for the second- and third-string quarterback spots behind Tyrod Taylor.

On Twitter, Jones thanked the Bills and their fans “for showing me nothing but love and support” during his brief time with the team.

but little else in the way of accuracy,Jones arrived on the team as an ultra-raw prospect with a strong arm, consistency or pocket awareness.

Nevertheless, who was the Bills’ offensive coordinator for most of last season and spent the final game as their interim head coach,Authentic Montravius Adams Jersey, new Chargers coach Anthony Lynn,Authentic Jamaal Williams Jersey, saw enough in Jones to give him an opportunity in L.A.

and he’s going to add competition behind Philip Rivers,womens Julién Davenport Jersey,“Cardale is a good young talent,womens Malik Hooker Jersey,” Lynn was quoted as saying on the Chargers’ official website. “He’s the type of quarterback you want waiting on the runway. He’s going to have the opportunity to come on the field and compete. Cardale is someone we think can be developed.”

Jones’ lone appearance as a rookie came in the 30-10 season-ending loss against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. womens Tarell Basham Jersey,He completed six of 11 passes for 96 yards. He was intercepted once and sacked once.

Although Jones had strong support from former Bills General Manager Doug Whaley, womens Marlon Mack Jersey,at least one former assistant coach on the team was known to have had major questions about Jones’ maturity and dedication.

The coach noted that Jones made multiple trips to his home in Northeast Ohio for personal matters,Authentic Marlon Mack Jersey, and at one point urged him to pay attention to the hard work that Taylor and former Bills backup EJ Manuel put into their preparation.

Panthers look to put 2016 behind them,womens Tim Williams Jersey,Newton,womens Nico Siragusa Jersey, return to top

Cam Newton had a sickening feeling in his stomach as he walked out of Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium last January.

The Panthers had just lost to the Buccaneers in Week 17 to finish 6-10,womens Tony Jefferson Jersey, last place in the NFC South — a marked dropoff after reaching the Super Bowl the year before.

No NFC championship to defend. Not even a trip to the playoffs. Just heartbreak, frustration and disappointment over a season that started with a loss to the Broncos in a Super Bowl rematch and never got on track.

“I can’t ever let that happen again — ever,” Newton said of Carolina’s first non-playoff season since 2012.

The league’s 2015 MVP is on a mission to get the Panthers back on top after battling through the worst statistical season of his six-year NFL career, then having offseason surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder. He played just one series in the preseason but the Panthers aren’t worried about him heading into the season.

The good news for Newton is he won’t be expected to do it alone.

With all of the new pieces in place, Newton feels like the Panthers have what it takes to win their fourth NFC South title in five years — and avenge last year’s awful season.

one spot: Will Damiere Byrd or Kaelin Clay make Panthers final roster?,Authentic Cameron Erving Jersey,Two receivers

The good news is that the team has more depth there than at almost any other position, what with Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess, meaning some of those “others” won’t survive Saturday’s cuts., and a whole host of other pass catchers.

If six, then that last spot should come down to either Kaelin Clay, now on his fourth team in three seasons since leaving Utah, and Brenton Bersin, considering first-round running back Christian McCaffrey can play out of the slot too,Authentic Cody Kessler Jersey, who missed his second consecutive contest with a shoulder injury. But if the team only keeps five, then the battle for final spot – between Byrd and Clay – becomes much more exciting.

Both proved on Thursday that they deserve to make the roster. Clay had his best game this preseason by far,Authentic Shon Coleman Jersey, recording three receptions for 76 yards. That included a 47-yard bomb right before halftime, Clay would’ve had a 56-yard touchdown.,womens Danny Shelton Jersey, where Clay burned two defenders down the middle of the field. If not for a defender nicking his ankle on the way up

“When I looked at the replay,Authentic Nate Orchard Jersey,it looked like he touched me getting up, as well.”,” Clay said. “I honestly didn’t feel anything ... those plays are kind of tough because they can be the difference in the score or the difference in myself

Byrd ended up the beneficiary of Clay’s big catch. Three plays later, where Byrd held on even after a big hit., Joe Webb found him in the end zone for the 13-yard scoreAuthentic Xavier Cooper Jersey

“It’s kind of funny, I’m in the end zone.”,” Byrd said. “ It seems like whenever we play at Bank of America (Stadium)womens Xavier Cooper Jersey

With the preseason now over, both men will know their fates., there’s not much either receiver can do now but wait. Rosters will be cut from 90 down to 53 by the end of Saturday; in a few days time

In the meantime, each has a plan for how he’ll spend the next day or so. Clay, said he’ll likely spend Saturday discussing baby matters with her., womens Nate Orchard Jersey,whose girlfriend is due with their daughter in a few months

As for Byrd, he’ll have a more hectic day. South Carolina plays N.C. State in Charlotte for its season opener, both will just have to wait and hope they did enough Thursday to survive cutdowns.,womens Cody Kessler Jersey,womens Shon Coleman Jersey, and Byrd said he wouldn’t dare miss his team playing in his city. Until then

“I think I’ve put enough on my resume,Authentic Danny Shelton Jersey,to show that I’m able to play on this team.”,” Byrd said

Jonathan Bullard, Bears’ ‘D’ take another step forward vs. Cardinals

For a moment, the Bears’ defense looked like it had a play it could hang its hat on in the team’s 24-23 victory Saturday night.

Safety Quintin Demps’ strip of wide receiver J.J. Nelson was picked out of the air by nickel back Cre’Von LeBlanc, who returned it 77 yards for a touchdown that momentarily gave the Bears a 9-0 lead against the Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

But the play was challenged by Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and reversed when officials ruled that Nelson’s knee touched the ground before he lost possession. Instead of a takeaway and a defensive score, the Cardinals had a third-down conversion and a first down at the Bears’ 32.,Authentic Deion Jones Jersey,

It was a tough break — and the right call — but a good sign for the Bears, who are desperate to improve their takeaways after getting an NFL-low and franchise-record-low 11 last season.

Even without that takeaway, the Bears’ defense looked more and more like the strong suit that will have to carry more than its share of the load — in the early going, if not all season. The Bears allowed a touchdown but forced the Cardinals to go for it on fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard line to get it.

After Chris Johnson gained three yards for a second-and-goal at the 1, and defensive end Jonathan Bullard stopped Johnson for no gain on third-and-goal. On fourth down,Authentic Robert Nkemdiche Jersey, Palmer threw incomplete,Authentic Brandon Williams Jersey, Palmer — with Leonard Floyd in his face — hit tight end Jermaine Gresham in the back of the end zone for a touchdown that gave the Cardinals a 7-3 lead.

But,Authentic D.J. Humphries Jersey, inside linebacker Danny Trevathan (knee), overall,womens MarkusGolden Jersey, it was another encouraging performance for a defense that was missing five expected Week????1 starters: defensive end Akiem Hicks (Achilles tendon), outside linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee) cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) and nickel back Bryce Callahan (ankle).

“When you put together an effort like we did [in] the first two quarters — [that’s] phenomenal defense,” outside linebacker Willie Young said during a sideline interview on the TV broadcast. “A few miscues here and there, but when you put together a group of guys who don’t have a lot of chemistry — the way we played says a lot about where we can go.”

Of the new starters, Bullard made the biggest impact. A 2016 third-round pick, Authentic MarkusGolden Jersey,Bullard built on a good start against the Broncos last week with two “stuffs” — stopping David Johnson for a one-yard loss in the first quarter and tackling Chris Johnson for the no gain at the goal line.

He also sacked backup Drew Stanton late in the first half, but the play was nullified by a penalty on Kyle Fuller. womens Deion Jones Jersey, Bullard suffered a glute injury in the second quarter and did not play in the second half.

LeBlanc had an eventful, if uneven, game. He was called for holding to negate a third-down incompletion in the first quarter but responded with a well-timed pass breakup against Larry Fitzgerald. He also had the near-miss on the Nelson fumble that was overturned.womens D.J. Humphries Jersey

Veteran safety Adrian Amos started opposite Demps, Palmer tried to hit Nelson in the end zone, but rookie Eddie Jackson made an impact almost as soon as he replaced Amos in the second quarter. On a first-and-10 at the Bears’ 32,womens Robert Nkemdiche Jersry, but Jackson made a leaping one-handed breakup — coming close to a highlight-reel interception.

Overall,womens Brandon Williams Jersey,Tennessee,Authentic Keanu Neal Jersey, the Bears’ first- and second-team defense held the Cardinals to 101 yards on 29 plays (3.5-yard average) in the first half, including 17 yards on nine carries (1.9 average). It’s still early,womens Keanu Neal Jersey,but the Bears’ defense has a solid foundation to build on heading into the third preseason game against the Titans in Nashville, next Sunday.
