elaine95 Everyone else is ready to name Ryan Fitzpatrick the Dolphins’ opening day starter except for the one person who matters. Brian Flores insisted earlier this week that the starting quarterback still is TBD.If that is the case Jason Taylor Jersey , then Josh Rosen gets another chance this week.The job, though, seems to be Ryan Fitzpatrick’s to lose, even though he’s completed only 5 of 14 passes for 40 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in two preseason games.He has lost quarterback battles more than he has won them or he wouldn’t be with his eighth team, but Fitzpatrick is hoping to make Flores’ decision an easy one and not win the job by default.“Being a starting quarterback in this league, I think it’s something that you can never take for granted,” Fitzpatrick, 36 Nat Moore Jersey , said, via Hal Habib of the . “You have a lot of people in the building, you have a lot of people in that locker room, a lot of fans that are relying on you to go out there and do your job. For me, it’s the reason that I still play. It’s a position that I love. It’s a position that I love being in. I’m excited to have the opportunity to compete to do it.”The Dolphins eventually need to play Rosen in the regular season to figure out whether he is their quarterback of the future or if they need to draft one in 2020. But Rosen is running out of time to win the job for Week One. In Cincinnati, the Bengals held linebacker Vontaze Burfict through the first five days of free agency. In Miami, the Dolphins are squatting on defensive end Robert Quinn, in the hopes of eventually buying another draft pick by paying part of his salary to facilitate a trade.Those two players and others ended up not available in the first few days of free agency because their contracts lacked for 2019 a clause that forced a quick decision.Plenty of contracts have them. For many players Mark Duper Jersey , it’s a roster bonus due on the fifth day of the league year, like the payment recently earned by Eli Manning. For others, injury guarantees become fully guaranteed within a few days after the start of the league year.The problem is that teams often resist putting devices like that in the later years of a contract, considering the flexibility in year three, four, or five of the contract part of the for the money paid in the first year or two. However, every multi-year contract should at this point contain in the second and third year (at a minimum) some sort of clause that forces the team to make a decision within a few days after the start of free agency, so that the player will know where he’s going to be for the coming year Mark Clayton Jersey , sooner than later.Absent a sizable roster bonus or a term that makes the salary for the coming season fully guaranteed, the team can keep the player around, in theory, until the eve of the regular-season opener before dropping out of the blue a take-a-pay-cut-or-take-a-hike ultimatum. With all other teams having their budgets largely spent and their rosters largely set by then, the player often won’t have many/any options if he chooses to refuse the request to slash his salary.Having a trigger early in the league year forces the issue to a head much earlier, at a time when a player would have other possible destinations and the leverage that flows from it. So if the player’s current team squeezes him on March 15, if he declines, and if he’s cut before earning the roster bonus Adam Joseph Duhe Jersey , he can go elsewhere, receive fair pay, get up to speed with his new team, and be much more ready to contribute to his new team come September.The fact that this isn’t a new phenomenon for teams underscores the importance of agents getting these terms in player contracts. And, if/when players choose to negotiate their own deals, they need to insist on terms like that, so that the team won’t be able to control the relationship for more than five months while the player wonders when or if the axe may fall.And it doesn’t take five months for the damage to be done. Last year, the Cowboys held receiver Dez Bryant’s contract until the middle of April Larry Csonka Jersey , for no reason other than they could. By the time he was cut, anyone who may have been interested in the middle of March had already made their free-agency moves, forcing Bryant to wait a very long time before the phone eventually rang.
elaine95 Andrew Luck looks and sounds like his old self.He's smiling Discount Darwin Thompson Jersey , cherishing each snap. He's throwing touchdowns and winning games, staying healthy and chasing the kinds of milestones so many expected when the Indianapolis Colts made him the top overall pick in the 2012 draft.Yes, at age 29, he's again having fun playing football."I was not in a good spot a year ago. I remember that. I am in a good spot now," Luck said in his trademark low-key tone following Sunday's 38-10 victory over Tennessee."My perspective is a little different toward this game. I appreciate things maybe a little bit more and I think that's pretty consistent with anybody who's been out for significant time with an injury."Twelve months ago, Luck was questioning everything from whether a second surgical procedure might alleviate the pain in his right shoulder to whether he would ever play another NFL game.He had been shut down for the season by going on injured reserve and headed to Europe where he continued rehabbing in relative anonymity.He spent Thanksgiving and Christmas in the Netherlands and when he returned home, just before Indy's season finale, Luck recounted some of the emotional challenges he faced during his prolonged recovery from a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder.Even then, things didn't go according to plan.The only NFL coach Luck played for, Chuck Pagano Super Bowl Darwin Thompson Jersey , was fired a few days after his return. New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels accepted the Colts' coaching job then backed out, paving the way for Frank Reich to eventually take over while Luck's recovery essentially started over."We were throwing little 鈥?I don't even know what kind of balls they were 鈥?weighted balls, but they didn't have points on them," Reich said when asked to recount Luck's status when he first arrived in town."He was patient. I give him a lot of credit. He was really patient and he just said he was going to stay patient and trust the process and he did that. So that's a lot of credit to him."Luck didn't start throwing footballs until May, didn't start throwing at practice till mid-June and was kept on a strict pitch count at training camp.So when the Colts started 1-5 and Luck was throwing short, some naturally wondered if Luck would ever regain his pre-injury form.A month later, there are no more doubts.Luck is in the midst of his best pro season with his completion rate (67.3 percent) and rating (101.8) at career highs and his 29 TD passes ranked second in the league to Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes. Luck has reduced the number of interceptions and forced passes and hasn't been sacked in five weeks, a total of 214 consecutive dropbacks.The closest Tennessee even came to touching Luck on Sunday was when Luck tried to catch a touchdown pass from tight end Eric Ebron.As a result, Indy (5-5) has won four straight to jump back into the playoff picture.If Luck throws three more TD passes this weekend against Miami, he will tie Peyton Manning (eight) for the second-longest streak of consecutive games in league history with only New England's Tom Brady (10) ahead of him. And the deep throws have returned Darwin Thompson Jersey nfl draft , too.But the more people talk about Luck's gaudy numbers, the more focused Luck becomes on enjoying football and life."It's nice that the results are positive for us certainly, but I wouldn't say that I'm having more fun," he said. "I'm just enjoying it. It's a great group of guys. It's a great group of coaches (and a) great building."If the injury taught Luck anything, it's how quickly things can change in the NFL.He lost right guard Matt Slauson to a season-ending back injury after Week 5 and now, in the midst of this remarkable streak, he may be missing center Ryan Kelly, who left Sunday's game with a knee injury in the fourth quarter. Reich said doctors are still evaluating Kelly's knee.The loss of Kelly could be huge, given offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo recently said Kelly was playing at a Pro Bowl level and was one of the best centers in the league."We feel like Evan (Boehm) is ready if he's the one playing," Reich said Monday. "Obviously Ryan is playing at a super high level. So I am not going to suggest that there wouldn't be any changes Xavier Williams Jersey , but they would be very minimal."Luck understands what it will be like for Kelly if he can't play.After fighting through the physical pain and mental difficulty, the agony of defeat and the heartache of not being able to help out, Luck believes he has come out the other end as a better player."Everybody's got a story to tell. Certainly as a quarterback in this league, if you play for a couple years you're going to have gone through something," he said. "I'd like to think that what happened, the result of that is probably the best thing for my career, the best thing that could've happened." The Chiefs might lose games occasionally, but nothing has stopped Chris Jones this season.The defensive lineman dropped Philip Rivers last night, extending his streak to 10 straight games with a sack.He already held the record for consecutive games with a sack in a single season, and last night he equaled the mark for players over multiple seasons.The others with sacks in 10 straight games are Simon Fletcher (1992-93) and DeMarcus Ware (2007-08).鈥淒uring this roll of games Patrick Mahomes Jersey , I expect him to get at least one sack every game, knowing Chris,鈥?teammate Derrick Nnadi said of Jones, via Lynn Worthy of the . 鈥淗e works very hard at his pass rush, and with him it鈥檚 bound to happen every week.鈥滼ones has downplayed the streak, saying it meant “nothing” if they don’t end up with home field advantage throughout the playoffs. They have some work to do on that front, but Jones is proving he’s there to do the work.
elaine95 Earlier in the week Donald Trump Jerseys 2019 , I broke down some possible trade deadline acquisitions that the the Patriots could make on offense. I wrote about the pros and cons of adding to the offense, but I think that we can all agree that adding to the defense should be a higher priority. After a 2017 season that saw an inconsistent and slow defensive group finally get exposed in the Super Bowl, not many of the major questions have been answered. The 2018 Patriots still lack speed and their edge rushers remain inconsistent. I expect them to look for front seven upgrades today, and there are plenty of trade candidates.Edge DefendersMarkus GoldenGolden, a 3-4 linebacker turned 4-3 defensive end in Arizona’s new scheme, has underwhelmed since he broke out with 12.5 sacks in 2016. After tearing his ACL and missingthe final twelve games in 2017, Golden has returned as a part-time player in the last year of his rookie contract, playing 46.7% of defensive snaps. Golden has been hot over his last three games, recording 1.5 sacks, four quarterback hits, and one pass defended.While Golden will likely never be the double-digit sack guy (and Marcus Cannon annihilator) he was in 2016 – and PFF suggested that he was a regression candidate – he is a guy that will add needed depth to the Patriots edge players at a minimal draft pick and financial cost. As a former second round pick at a premium defensive position, the Patriots can expect Golden to factor into compensatory pick calculations with his next contract. Shane Ray/Shaquil BarrettShane Ray and Shaquil Barrett are edge defenders that have had experience playing both 3-4 outside linebacker and 4-3 defensive end. On a non-contending team like the Broncos, they should both be available as free-agents to be. Ray was a hyped prospect at Missouri playing alongside Michael Sam. Despite being issued a misdemeanor citation for marijuana possession three days before the draft, Ray was traded up for and selected 23rd overall back in 2015. After showing promise in limited snaps behind Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware his first two seasons in the league, many though that he was going to shine in a full-time role. Instead, Ray has struggled with a nagging wrist injury and has been ineffective when healthy. Denver declined to pick up his 5th year option.Shaquil Barrett fought his way onto the Denver roster as an UDFA White Stephen Gostkowski Jerseys , and quickly became a regular. While Ray has a much higher ceiling and has arguably better utility on the Patriots as a pure sub-rusher, Barrett has a much more well-rounded game. Barrett has been active for every game dating back to week 1 in 2015 and has been a major contributor on special teams every year of his career. He also has a knack for forcing turnovers with seven forced fumbles in his career.Vinny CurryCurry was a part of the Eagles’ fearsome edge defender rotation last year with Brandon Graham, Chris Long, and Derek Barnett, before he became too expensive to keep this offseason. He cashed in with Tampa Bay on a three-year deal worth $23 million, but his contract really only consists of a one-year guarantee. All money after 2018 is only guaranteed for injury, so the Patriots could clear Curry’s $8 million dollar cap hit for 2019 with no dead money after the season. Curry is currently nursing an ankle injury that has sidelined him since week six, and he’s probably out for another couple of weeks. Contingent on his injury not threatening the rest of his season, Curry is a solid option as a 3rd down sub rusher and his 2018 base salary is $3 million, so trading for him would not put the Patriots over the cap. My opinion: Yes on Golden and Barrett, no on Ray; Curry is too risky with his ankle injuryLinebackersJamie Collins Sr.The “Jamie Collins to the Pats” rumblings began with an innocuous suggestion by ESPN’s Bill Barnwell in a trade idea column three weeks ago. While Collins’ prorated base salary is more than the Patriots can afford with their cap space, Barnwell introduces the idea of Cleveland converting some of it to a bonus to lower the cost for the Patriots. Whether or not Barnwell’s conclusion that Cleveland would dump Collins for nothing but a 7th round pick to save $2.5 million is realistic is another story, but that’s the framework of what the potential deal would look like. As one of the only Jamie Collins truthers left, I would more than welcome the return of Collins, who in my opinion should have never been traded in the first place. The acquisition of Collins would help address the biggest issue with the Patriots’ linebackers, their lack of speed. He would push Hightower and Van Noy to the edge more where they can better utilize their skill sets. Jeff Howe reported this weekend that the Patriots did in fact inquire about Collins. Todd DavisDavis has long been an underrated linebacker Stephen Gostkowski Jerseys 2019 , and he’s under contract through 2020 on very reasonable cap hits. He isn’t a guy that Denver has any obligation to trade, so we’re probably looking at an offer of at least a 4th round pick. To me, Davis strikes me as a linebacker that Belichick likes. He represents an upgrade over Elandon Roberts as an early down run stuffer and can push Hightower and Van Noy to the edge as well. Haason ReddickReddick was an athletic freak coming out of Temple and the Cardinals pounced on him with the 13th overall pick in 2017, knowing that he was heading for a position change from defensive end to linebacker at the next level. Midway through the second year of his career, Reddick is trying hard to avoid bust status. It’s way too early to declare it right now, especially when considering all of the coaching, scheme and multi-position work he’s had to go through early in his career, but his name has already been floated in trade talks. After playing no more than 18% of defensive snaps in weeks 1-4, Reddick hasn’t left the field over his last four, playing almost exclusively 4-3 OLB. PFF thinks that he’s OK but Ian Rapaport insinuated last week that Reddick may have played his way off of the trading block in the eyes of the Arizona front office. Perhaps that is the case, but the theory that the Cardinals used the last four weeks to showcase him for a trade could also hold true. At this point, Reddick’s trade value is at least a 3rd round pick. The Patriots make a lot of sense as a suitor, as they have a need for an athletic linebacker and are projected for four 3rd round picks.My opinion: Yes on Collins if they can make the money work. I wouldn’t pay the Broncos’ asking price for Davis. If the Cardinals will accept the Lions’ 2019 3rd rounder and another piece (Eric Rowe?) for Reddick then I’m in.All-in tradesPatrick Peterson/Chris Harris Jr.Patrick Peterson is the guy that many have been clamoring for since he made a declaration that he wanted out of Arizona. GM Steve Keim publicly rebuffed the request, likely in an attempt to save his job. That being said, I could see the Patriots giving out an offer the Cardinals can’t refuse like a 2019 1st round pick, Eric Rowe White Matthew Slater Jerseys , and a conditional 2020 3rd rounder. If the Patriots are really serious about going all-in on Brady’s final years, controlling Peterson alongside Stephon Gilmore through 2020 would be one hell of a way to do it. The same concept would be true if the Patriots made a similar offer for Chris Harris Jr. who is controlled for one fewer year, but at a much cheaper price. Elway would hate to deal CHJ to someone in his conference, let alone the Patriots, but a 1st round pick offer could be too good to resist.Bobby WagnerSeattle is dead. They might now want to hear it, but that team isn’t winning anything with their current core, their championship window is closed for now. The cost for arguably the best linebacker in the game will be steep, at least a 1st round pick. And hell, John Schneider and Pete Carroll might just hang up the phone. But this kind of aggressive acquisition would inject new life into a defense that has struggled in the middle for most of the last two years. Wagner is controlled through 2019 and space for his $11.5 million cap hit next year can be made by the release of Hightower and Dwayne Allen. My opinion: I would trade a future 1st round pick (or more) for Peterson and Wagner if available. I would probably balk at Elway’s price for Chris Harris Jr.If someone asked a room full of Patriots fans “have you ever been personally victimized by the Patriots’ defense in last two years”, every hand in the room would go up. Once a team that was known for its tenacious defense and opportunistic and scrappy defenders, the Patriots’ defensive unit has been out of character for going on two years now. Will it take a blockbuster move for them to fix it? Can the Patriots afford to only add marginal talent to their front 7 when the window for a championship could shut at any moment? Those are questions that I am throughly unqualified to answer, but I’m sure they have been thought about for hours and hours in the Patriots’ front office. The deadline is today at 4:00 PM EST and I’m looking forward to seeing how they address them. Can Harry become the first Patriot to achieve the honor since 1995?"When they drafted N’Keal Harry 32nd overall, the New England Patriots added a high-upside pass catcher to provide physicality and playmaking ability on the perimeter — at least that is the ideal outcome of the world champions’ first-round investment. And while it remains to be seen whether or not Harry actually develops that way, oddsmakers appear to be at last somewhat confident in his abilities to become a productive wide receiver.According to recent odds published by BetOnline.ag, Harry is tied for eighth among offensive rookies when it comes to the chances of being named the best among them at the conclusion of the 2019 season. At 16/1, the Arizona State product trails players such as the first overall selection Matthew Slater Jerseys 2019 , quarterback Kyler Murray (2.25/1), or the premier tight end to enter the draft, new Detroit Lion T.J. Hockenson (12/1).New England’s offensive players winning rookie of the year honors is a rare occurrence, however. Should Harry take home the trophy at the season’s end, he would become just the fourth Patriot to be named the top offensive rookie in the NFL — and the first since the 1995 season: John Stephens won in 1988, Leonard Russell in 1991, and Curtis Martin four years later. All three players were, of course, running backs.That being said, Harry does not need to be in the conversation for the award all year long to have a positive impact on New England’s offense: with one of the league’s better running games and Julian Edelman still one of the most reliable wideouts in all of football, the Patriots’ first-rounder simply needs to provide a viable alternative target. If he can do that and adequately fill the number two role held by Chris Hogan at the end of the 2018 season, he would have been worth the investment — even without being named rookie of the year.
elaine95 New England held its third session of the week on Thursday."WhitePatriots News Opinion and Analysis Contribute!

Jackson among standouts on day threeEDTShareTweetShareShare6 quick-hit thoughts on the Patriots’ first open OTA practiceBob DeChiara-USA TODAY SportsThe New England Patriots’ organized team activities are in full swing, and Thursday saw the team’s first appearance in front of the media. The almost two-hour long session held on the fields behind Gillette Stadium was little more than a first taste of the 2019 Patriots, but it already produced some memorable moments — in terms of production and when it came to personnel usage both on and off the field.With that in mind, let’s quickly run through six of the bigger storylines to come out of the third and final OTA practice of the week.Joe Thuney is the next man up at left tackle... for nowThe Patriots’ offensive tackle depth is not exactly ideal at the moment: with Jared Veldheer retiring after just eight days in New England, and both Isaiah Wynn and rookie Yodny Cajuste out due to injury, the team turned to their starting left guard to fill in. Joe Thuney lined up exclusively as the team’s left tackle on Thursday, with Ted Karras, Brian Schwenke, Cole Croston, Dan Skipper and at one point even David Andrews taking reps at left guard.Thuney is of course no stranger to playing on the left end of the line: the 26-year-old was a starter at left tackle during his senior season at N.C. State, and has the build and experience to be successful in that position as well. That being said, it would still be a minor surprise if anybody but Wynn lined up as the starting left tackle once the season opens in early September. But what yesterday again showed is that the Patriots might need to add an extra body at the position for the sake of stability at the other four spots.The punter competition will be fun to watch this summerWhile incumbent Ryan Allen was absent on Thursday, the punter competition shapes up to be one of the most intriguing of the summer. After all, fifth-round rookie Jake Bailey already looks like a stronger challenger than Corey Bojorquez ever was: he displayed a strong leg as well as plenty of hang time and also was given reps as a kickoff specialist. His directional kicking and consistency will be a deciding factor whether or not he unseats Allen Tedy Bruschi Jerseys 2019 , but early on Bailey appeared to be comfortable in the position he’s in.N’Keal Harry is off to a good startWhen you invest a first-round draft pick in a player, you expect him to make an impact sooner rather than later. In wide receiver N’Keal Harry’s case, it looks as if ‘sooner’ is right now: just one month after hearing his name called to close out round one, Harry impressed in what is only his third ever OTA practice. The rookie saw plenty of reps and proved himself to be a reliable target capable of winning one-on-one matchups and out-muscling his opponents in crowded situations.While he still has ways to go and obviously needs to build a rapport with starting quarterback Tom Brady once the future Hall of Famer returns to the field, the early signs are encouraging for Harry. He certainly catches the eye, as his size in combination with his athleticism and ability to catch the football all stand out.The Patriots’ deep cornerback group stands outSpeaking of standing out, so does New England’s cornerback group. Led by All-Pro Stephon Gilmore, the competition for practice reps and by extension playing time shapes up to be an exciting one. Yesterday, for example, two players stood out in particular: second-year man J.C. Jackson — coming off an impressive rookie year that saw him go from undrafted signing to de facto starter opposite Gilmore — registered a pair of pass breakups.Jackson is in line for the famed second-year jump, while another youngster might also see regular action if he can build on the small sample size that is Thursday’s practice. Second-round rookie Joejuan Williams stood out because of his size, and already made use of it as he registered a pass breakup during the session and also came a way with an interception in a team drill that would likely have been a pick-six in a game.All in all, the depth and quality at cornerback is apparent — especially considering that a player like last year’s second-round pick Duke Dawson Jr, who played primarily in the slot on Thursday, also is part of the mix.Jerod Mayo the coach is just like Jerod Mayo the playerWhen he with the Patriots from 2008 until his retirement following the 2015 season White Andre Tippett Jerseys , Jerod Mayo was a vocal presence at the linebacker position — a team captain and leader on a team in transition. Now manning the sidelines as New England’s new inside linebackers coach, his approach appears to be the same: Mayo is an active communicator and taking a hands-on approach with his players; some of which former teammates of his.Don’t sleep on New England’s offensive skill acquisitionsWhile the rookies draw plenty of attention during organized team activities, the veteran offseason additions should also be kept in mind. Yesterday, for example, three players stood out: Benjamin Watson and Matt LaCosse looked good as the men atop the tight end depth chart, while wide receiver Maurice Harris — as pointed out by CLNS Media’s Evan Lazar — saw numerous reps in a gadget-player role like the one previously held by Cordarrelle Patterson.While a lot can and will happen until training camp and the preseason, the veteran trio is off to a solid start in terms of usage and production in a limited setting. Once live contact is allowed, of course, they will get tested in another way, but at this point, it seems as if the coaching staff feels confident when it comes to putting plenty on respective plates of Watson, LaCosse and Harris. Terrell Owens always likes being the center of attention. His decision to skip the induction ceremony for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August will keep him far from the spotlight.Owens was voted into the hall in February after being denied in his first two years of eligibility. His announcement Thursday is unprecedented by an enshrinee.”Hopefully, the story this summer will remain about those that will be there instead of the one that will not,” said Howard Balzer of SiriusXM Radio, a 15-year voter for the Hall of Fame.In a statement released Thursday by his publicist Andre Tippett Jerseys 2019 , Owens said: ”While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton.”After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere,” Owens added. ”At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction.”The hall confirmed that the former All-Pro receiver informed them he would not be on hand Aug. 4 for the enshrinements.”We are disappointed but will respect Terrell’s decision not to participate in the enshrinement,” Hall of Fame President & CEO David Baker said.”While unprecedented, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the nearly 5,000 volunteers and the entire community are committed to celebrating the excellence of the Class of 2018 that will kick off the NFL’s 99th season.”As we do not want to detract from this great honor being enjoyed by the seven other members of the class of 2018 – Bobby Beathard, Robert Brazile, Brian Dawkins, Jerry Kramer, Ray Lewis, Randy Moss and Brian Urlacher – their family White John Hannah Jerseys , friends, and fans, the Pro Football Hall of Fame will have no further comment on the decision made by Terrell Owens.”Owens entered the league as a third-round pick by San Francisco in 1996 and developed into a star known for some memorable playoff appearances, including his winning 25-yard TD catch to beat Green Bay in 1999; his 177 yards in a comeback win against the Giants in 2003; and his nine catches for 122 yards in the 2004 Super Bowl against New England just seven weeks after breaking his leg.He ranks second to Jerry Rice with 15,934 yards receiving and is third on the all-time touchdowns receiving list with 153.Owens heavily criticized the voting process when he failed to be elected in 2016 and 2017. Among the reasons he fell short were his being considered a divisive teammate and negative presence in the locker room.Still, he received strong consideration for the hall before getting in last February, along with Moss, another standout receiver.”I think T.O. actually was disappointed when he got in this year,” said Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News, who presented Owens’ case for induction and has been on the selection committee for 16 years. ”I think he was happier when he got snubbed and could play the part of the persecuted victim and moan on every radio talk show that was willing to bring him on about the unfairness of the process.”Maybe he was worried that he would become forgotten after the induction ceremony. This way, he gets his gold jacket, but still will be remembered as the guy who told the hall to go stuff it.”Another Owens supporter in the hall voting, Jarrett Bell of USA Today, has been on the selection committee for 21 years and was ”at a loss to understand” why Owens would decline to attend the inductions.But Bell, like Baker John Hannah Jerseys 2019 , stressed Owens’ absence would not affect the ceremony much.”Think of the other members of the class of 2018,” Bell said. ”They deserve their upcoming honor and the celebration. There’s no stain on them because someone doesn’t want to show up.”Think of the players who gave their all to the sport, including many worthy of Hall of Fame consideration, who will never be enshrined. Think of the family members of former players, coaches and officials – many of whom have passed away – pushing for their loved ones to receive special recognition for career accomplishments. Then think of Terrell Owens. In that order.”As perhaps an indicator he might skip the August ceremony, Owens didn’t attend the announcement that he’d been selected to the hall.”All these years Owens wanted to go to the hall and was quite vocal about it,” said Rick Gosselin, a hall voter for 23 years. ”Now he doesn’t want to go to the hall? It’s kind of puzzling. … I wonder what all of his new teammates wearing those gold jackets think.”Owens did thank the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills and Bengals in his statement and called becoming a Hall of Famer ”an honor to be part of such elite company. This honor is something that I will cherish forever.”He just won’t be on hand to see his bust unveiled in August.”But don’t think of even considering it a sad day for the Hall of Fame,” Bell said. ”The hall will always be bigger than one person.”—
