      SANTA CLARA

      and he flunked the arm test.,Jerick McKinnon didn't fare well in the eyeball test

      When he was in high school, high school expressly to measure McKinnon's arms., the 49ers' new lead runner had exactly one suitor, Ga., the University of Illinois, from a large college program. Illinois was interested in him as a defensive back and one day sent an assistant coach to his Marietta

      They were short.

      Illinois ended up giving the scholarship to another defensive back prospect from the Chicago area with longer arms. McKinnon is now in the NFL and recently signed his second contract; the kid from Chicago isn't.

      The lesson – and one that McKinnon has administered several times since – is that the experts were sizing up the wrong thing.

      undersized kid I was trying to sell to colleges: There's not going to be a kid on your football program that's going to outwork him.","He's an exceptionally hard worker," McKinnon's high school coach, said. "And I'm not saying this because he's arrived and he's in the NFL now and all that. I told people this when he was a young, Billy Shackelford

      That attribute is directly related to McKinnon's perceived weakness: He never was very impressive to behold. At just under 5-foot-9, Carlos Hyde., he's 3 inches shorter and 25 pounds lighter than the 49ers' top running back the last three seasons

      When Shackelford first met him, better kids playing quarterback and running back., the coach called him "Blow Pop" because his head sat upon a skinny, stick-like frame like a lollipop. Sure, he was moonlighting on the junior varsity team because Sprayberry High School had bigger, he had quick feet and soft hands, but even as a junior

      " Shackelford said. "Why is that? Because he wasn't our best guy yet.","This is a guy who's an NFL running back who was not starting at running back for us

      But at some point between his junior and senior years, he was lifting more than the offensive linemen who were more than 100 pounds heavier than him., McKinnon realized he could use the weight room to catch up to – and surpass – his peers. The click, and by college, clack, clank of the gym became the soundtrack to his life. No one was more dedicated

      Most coaches have to relentlessly prod their players to train harder. Jeff Monken, had to do the opposite.,Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey, McKinnon's coach at Georgia Southern

      ' and frankly some of the squats weights – he was putting up high 500 (pounds) in the squat and he didn't need to go to 600 to prove to us he was strong enough. We wanted him to retain that power but not get him hurt.",Authentic Dan Fouts Jersey,"There came a point in his career in college where we just shut him down,Authentic Melvin Ingram Jersey," Monken said. "It was,Authentic Joey Bosa Jersey, you're strong enough, 'Look

      Both Shackelford and Monken had the same issue when trying to send McKinnon to the next level: No one was clear on how they should use him.

      "I heard this word a bunch: 'He's a "tweener, 'He's kind of between a (defensive back) and a receiver and a running back.' ",Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey," ' " Shackelford said. "I don't even know what the hell that means. It was

      Monken recruited McKinnon to play quarterback at Georgia Southern, McKinnon even started at cornerback and came away with two interceptions., which at the time was a Football Championship Subdivision program. But in the school's triple-option attack, he was more runner than thrower. He attempted 17 passes his entire senior season, while running for 1, at wing back, for example,050 yards and scoring 12 touchdowns on the ground. He lined up at quarterback, at slot and at receiver. In one game early in his college tenure

      The NFL wasn't quite sure what to make of him. "Jack of all trades," his pre-draft profile on NFL.com read. "Would benefit from focusing on one position and will require some time to develop.", master of none

      That report thought he'd be, at best, change-of-pace-type runner., a seventh-round selection. The Vikings instead took him in the third round but for four seasons mostly used him as a third-down

      McKinnon's versatility, is precisely why Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers pursued him so aggressively in free agency., however

      Shanahan was seeking someone who could run between tackles and catch passes equally well, the 49ers will line him up out wide like a receiver and hope the defense sends a 245-pound linebacker to cover him., something that Hyde, McKinnon will operate like a conventional tailback. On others, a more traditional running back, couldn't supply. On many snaps

      " Shanahan said. "Because he plays running back and receiver and tight end – he does all that. You use him the same way you use all these positions. He's a very good running back. But he also brings a lot of other stuff to the table.","Everyone talks about running back and stuff – they need a new position to name people

      played.,Back in high school, McKinnon received no offers from Football Bowl Subdivision schools and no interest from the powerful Southeastern Conference teams he grew up watching. That included the University of Florida, Lester Norwood, where his older brother

      "I pretty much was on the back burner, scholarships to. I was more of a 'we'll wait-and-see' type guy."," he said. "I wasn't one of the top guys that they were giving offers

      McKinnon spent the next four years making those schools sorry for putting him on hold.

      In 2011, he ran for 109 yards and two touchdowns versus Georgia.,Womens Dan Fouts Jersey, he was part of a rushing attack that rolled up 302 yards against mighty Alabama. The next year

      where McKinnon had sat in the stands watching his brother.,Womens Allen Robinson Jersey,He saved his biggest blow for last. Georgia Southern closed out the 2013 season at Florida

      000 in exchange for what was expected to be a mere tune-up for the Gators' upcoming match against rival Florida State.,It was what's known in college football as a "money game." Georgia Southern received $550

      The Eagles, however,Womens Dalvin Cook Jersey, McKinnon rushed for 125 yards and scored the winning touchdown on an outside run with 2:57 remaining.,Womens Joey Bosa Jersey, took the money and ran all over the heavily favored home team. In his final college game

      " Shanahan said. "When you're the best player on the field for Georgia Southern playing against Florida in Gainesville and they're having a hard time tackling you? That says a lot about the guy.",Womens Melvin Ingram Jersey,"I remember watching that and I remember thinking he was the best one on the field

      Shackelford said anyone doubting whether McKinnon is big enough to be San Francisco's lead runner ought to remember what happened in college.

      " Shackelford said. "They think he's a third-down guy. And I'll be very frank with you: It pisses him off. It makes him mad. It's what all the colleges told him out of high school: He wasn't big enough. And I hope everyone says he's not big enough. Because all that's going to do is make him an absolute dog for the 49ers.","A lot of people don't think he's a three-down back

      The Raiders are now on a punter hunt, a surprising turn considering Marquette King was locked up long-term.

      King was released Friday afternoon with three years left on a contract extension signed in 2016. His loss gave the Raiders $2.9 million in salary cap space and an immediate positional need.

      originally signed to help King get through the offseason program. The UC Davis alum has no NFL playing experience,Authentic Karl Joseph Jersey,Colby Wadman is the only punter on the Raiders roster,Authentic Jihad Ward Jersey, with only rookie minicamp tryouts with the Raiders and Indianapolis Colts last year to his credit.

      The free agent well is virtually dry. Brad Wing the only active punter who had a job last year left on the street. He was analytics site Pro Football Focus' lowest-rated punter a year ago.

      some with vast potential. The Raiders have a glut of later-round selections,Womens Shilique Calhoun Jersey,There are more options in the NFL Draft, including two in the fifth round and four more in the sixth.

      The Raiders could certainly find some quality with those picks,Womens Karl Joseph Jersey, and needed to create space for their roster overhaul. They also must budget for paying their draft class, and pay far less for a punter than King might've cost. The Raiders are right up against the NFL salary cap, meaning a few more veterans might get cut in coming weeks.

      Texas' Michael Dickson is NFL.com's highest-rated punter in the draft – he also won 2017's Ray Guy award -- and the site suggests he could be had in the fourth round. That seems a smidge high,Womens Marshawn Lynch Jersey, though Alabama's JK Scott is well reviewed,Authentic Connor Cook Jersey, with a fifth-round departure expected. Bowling Green's Joseph Davidson and Florida's Johnny Townsend are rated high.

      The Raiders signed King as an undrafted free agent,Womens Connor Cook Jersey, seeing great potential and Shane Lechler's heir apparent.

      The Raiders didn't blindly make this move,Authentic Mario Edwards Jr Jersey, and clearly have someone in mind to take King's spot.

      Raiders specialists will have a new look this year,Authentic Shilique Calhoun Jersey, with Andrew DePaola replacing long-time long snapper Jon Condo. Giorgio Tavecchio also retained Sebastian Janikowski's job as Raiders kicker,Womens Jihad Ward Jersey, one just before 2017 and held all year.

      While Texans owner Bob McNair considers his players "inmates" and believes the football field is no place for political demonstrations, a second, more empathetic faction has emerged among NFL owners.

      Jets acting owner Christopher Johnson, who has taken command of the team with older brother Woody serving as an ambassador to England, may be the polar opposite of the conservative McNair.

      but I'm only one of 32 owners. So we'll see how that goes. I just think that trying to forcibly get the players to shut up is a fantastically bad idea.",When asked Sunday if the NFL should ban anthem protests, "I don't agree with that, he said

"We have witnessed firsthand how New York's broken bail, discovery,Authentic 12th Fan Jersey,"As members of the Players Coalition, and speedy trial rules keep people locked up for months pretrial, with no meaningful hope of having a speedy trial and no access to critical evidence in their cases. And we now stand with the majority of New Yorkers demanding change."

      The Players Coalition is a group of NFL players led by Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and Boldin that most notably worked to get the NFL to pledge almost $100 million to community and social justice initiatives. The Coalition's work has evolved from the anthem protests Colin Kaepernick started in 2016, proof that, despite McNair's belief that a football field is no place for politics.

      that is not going to change. It's going to be a platform for players because of what we do on that field. It gives us a chance to go out there and do some things we're passionate about and do some things we believe in. But at the end of the day," Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty said. "It is a platform for us as players, and I think,"I think we all showed that it is, no matter what anyone says, it's about what we do off the playing field that creates real change."

      the Players Coalition held a summit at Harvard and the players have been instrumental in supporting initiatives around the country.,That change is beginning to be seen in criminal justice reforms taking shape around the country. NFL players like McCourty and Jenkins have been instrumental in keeping the conversation about these matters fresh and out in the open. Last week

      In Massachusetts, the criminal justice reform bill McCourty and former Patriot Troy Brown lobbied for was filed on Friday. According to a source close to the situation, the involvement of those players and their presence at the State House made a significant difference in pushing it forward. Part of that bill would raise the age of a child entering the juvenile system from 7 to 12 years old.

      simply because they cannot afford the hefty fee. Thanks to a new ordinance,The Atlanta City Council voted unanimously last month to change how bail works, a system that can punish people and leave them locked up, guilty or not, judges have more flexibility to let people go before their trial depending on the nature of the crimes they are accused of.

      to think that one bill or one meeting is going to change anything would be foolish.

No matter what kind of momentum we have,Authentic Steve Largent Jersey, no matter what we do, keep pushing."

      The players have been working hard for two years, but now for the first time, they are getting public support from ownership.

      An Arizona company is working on a test which would identify biomarkers of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in living patients, and they’re asking NFL players in the area for their help.

      Via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic,Authentic John Ross Jersey, the research study is looking for football players over the age of 20,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, saliva and urine. The test is a potential breakthrough,Womens DeShone Kizer Jersey, who only have to provide small amounts of blood,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey, since CTE has only been able to be identified during an autopsy.

      Two companies, one based in Phoenix are collaborating on the study, and hope to tap into the high number of former NFL players in the area, as they look for 200 past and present players.

      “This is ground zero for the launch of this really important study,Womens John Ross Jersey,” said former NFL safety and broadcaster Solomon Wilcots, who leads a “players council” for Exosome Sciences. “If there was ever a time to have a call to action,Womens A.J. Green Jersey, this would be it. This is where the rubber meets the road. And there is a tremendous number of former NFL players in the Phoenix area.”

      The company is beginning collections Wednesday in Phoenix,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey, and players looking for more information can contact the study coordinator at CTE@tgen.org or 602-343-8653.

      “We love the game of football; we wouldn’t be here talking about this if we didn’t,Womens Jim Brown Jersey,” former NFL linebacker Jamir Miller,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, another participant in the study,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, we have to step up and face some of the ills.

      Which quarterback in this year’s draft class is the most ready to play in the NFL right away? Sam Darnold? Baker Mayfield? Josh Rosen?

      John O’Korn. At least according to John O’Korn.,No

      who managed just two touchdown passes and six interceptions as a part-time starter last year at Michigan,O’Korn, says that playing for Jim Harbaugh prepared him for the NFL better than any other quarterback has been prepared.

      “Honestly, and knowing what to do on a day-to-day basis,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, I think I would choose myself over any other guy in this draft in that regard.”, game-planning,Womens Julio Jones Jersey,” O’Korn said. “I was part of the game-plan meetings with coach Harbaugh,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, coach[Pep] Hamilton,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey, I think I’m the most NFL-ready quarterback in this draft just as far as terminology,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, coach[Tim] Drevno, all last fall,Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey, the whole staff, so just on a day-to-day basis what it takes to be an NFL quarterback

      That might make O’Korn sound delusional,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, but he understands that he’s just going to be a guy fighting for a roster spot in the months ahead.

      ” O’Korn said. “Whether I get drafted or picked up as an undrafted free agent, that’s really not up to me, but I’m going to come in,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey,“That’s all I really can ask for,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, I’m going to work and I’m going to be the best at whatever they expect me to do.”

That doesn’t necessarily make him worth a seventh-round draft pick,Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey,Perhaps O’Korn means to say that he’s the most ready to be an NFL scout team quarterback, but it might get him the chance he’s looking for.

      ORLANDO — Fresh off his deposition earlier this month in quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s collusion complaint against the league, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair is once again talking the NFL into a tough spot while attending the league’s meetings.

      Following a closed session of league meetings in New York last October – in which McNair made comments about “inmates running the prison” that became a controversial flashpoint for protesting NFL players – McNair once again raised eyebrow’s at the league’s Orlando meetings Sunday. This time it was in a public setting, speaking to reporters in defense of Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson and, against the player protests that have roiled the league.,Authentic John Ross Jersey, once again

      “Our playing field is not the place for political statements[and] not the place for religious statements,Womens A.J. Green Jersey,” McNair told reporters of player protests,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, although the game won’t be good. You can’t replace the fans. If you don’t have fans,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, this time adding in the new wrinkle of “religious statements.” “It’s the place for football. … Fans are our customers. You can replace the owners and the league will survive. You can replace the players, you’re dead.

      “I think we all need to respect our flag and respect our country,” McNair added. “I think we’ll figure out a way to make sure that we do that. We’ll have discussions about it.

      As for Richardson, McNair suggested the Panthers owner may have been “joking” or “misunderstood.”, who is currently being investigated by the league for settling complaints of allegedly making improper sexual and racial comments in the workplace

      “I hope this thing turns out that he’s innocent,” McNair said of Richardson. “They alleged. I don’t know. Some of the comments he might have made – could have been made jokingly and misunderstood. I’m sure he didn’t mean to offend anybody.”

      Richardson is being investigated by the league after a Sports Illustrated report detailed multiple settlements with former employees who alleged that he had made abusive workplace statements.

      It’s an investigation the league has sparsely commented on since the December report’s release, stating that Richardson’s defense to other owners was that he was merely settling the complaints as a matter of fiscal strategy., but McNair made revealing comments Sunday

      “Sometimes people choose to try to make something go away rather than fighting it, too,” McNair said of Richardson. “I think his regret is he didn’t fight some of these things. … We get confronted with it,Womens John Ross Jersey, where people will allege something,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, get a lawyer,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey, and come out and threaten you. Your legal counsel and your insurance people say,Womens Jim Brown Jersey, wait a minute. We’re not guilty. Why would we do that?’ That’s the question. Sometimes just to get rid of it,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey, ‘It’s going to cost you X millions of dollars to defend this. And if we can settle it for this…’ ‘[But you ask] well, if you can get rid of it,Womens DeShone Kizer Jersey, do it.”

      If anything, McNair’s comments foreshadow what lies ahead at these meetings. Aside from rules tweaks, then most certainly a protest debate that seems anything but settled., the gathering will be dominated by some of the same controversies that have dogged the league for more than a year now. If not more questions about a #MeToo movement that now squarely includes an NFL owner

      Whitehead missed the first three games of his junior season in 2017 for violating team rules and Pitt went 1-2 without their best player in the secondary.

      NEW YORK (AP) -- Trumaine Johnson has a huge contract and even bigger expectations from the Jets and their fans.

      who has already established himself as one of the NFL's best at his position. And he got paid as such, signing a five-year,That's nothing new for New York's newest cornerback,Womens John Ross Jersey, $72.5 million deal last week that included a $20 million signing bonus and $34 million in guaranteed money.

      '' Johnson said Thursday during a conference call with reporters. ''I know what I can do. I know what I can bring to the game. I've been confident all my life. I really love winning,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey,''No pressure at all, and I can't wait to get started with this defense.''

      Johnson spent his first six seasons with the Rams and was arguably the top cornerback available at the start of the league's free agency period last Wednesday. He had 18 interceptions while establishing himself as one of the best cover cornerbacks in the NFL,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, routinely tracking opponents' top wide receivers the last two seasons for Los Angeles.

      New York's top cornerback last year,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey,He joins an improved and promising secondary that includes the recently re-signed Morris Claiborne, along with second-year safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye.

      ''On paper, but a lot of things go along with that, the strength and conditioning coaches,Womens Jim Brown Jersey,'' Johnson said. ''I'm just focused, right now, on getting in the building, it does look good, meeting everybody else, the rest of the coaches, the staff. My main focus is winning. That's always been my main focus. That's my goal. I love winning and I can't wait to get started with the New York Jets.''

      Johnson said he immediately heard from his new secondary mates as Adams,After he signed, Maye and Claiborne all reached out to him to welcome him to the team.

      Some fans and media have already started to wonder if Johnson and Claiborne could be the top cornerback duo in the NFL. And Johnson doesn't shy away from that potential label.

      ''Why not?'' Johnson asked. ''I'm going to hold him accountable and I know he's going to hold me accountable. I can't wait to go out there and compete with the guys.''

      when he had a career-high seven interceptions. The Rams used the franchise tag on Johnson the last two offseasons,Johnson was a third-round pick out of Montana in 2012 and established himself as a solid starter in his second year with the Rams. His breakout season came in 2015, when he made $13.95 million in 2016 and $16.74 million last year.

      But this offseason was the first time Johnson was able to make his own decision on where to play - and set his own terms.

      finally,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey,'' he said. ''That's what one of my main focuses has been,Authentic John Ross Jersey,''It is good to have security,Womens A.J. Green Jersey, trying to get that long-term contract. I'm happy that the Jets took a chance on me.''

      Johnson's talents are unquestioned,Womens DeShone Kizer Jersey, and he has the confidence to match them. He didn't hesitate when asked what he brings to his new team.

      '' he said. ''I'm a playmaker. I bring leadership to the team. I'm big, I'm fast and I used to be a receiver back in college,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey,''I'm a game changer, so my hands have always been a strength for me.''

      Johnson will be reunited with secondary coach Dennard Wilson,With the Jets, the Rams' defensive quality control coach from 2012-14 and Johnson's position coach from 2015-16.

      '' Johnson said. ''I've been comfortable with him, he knows my style of play and I know his style of coaching,''One of the big things was to re-link with Coach Wilson, so that was big for me.''

      Johnson is leaving a Rams team that's on the rise and joins a franchise that is trying to get to that point. The Jets have been active in free agency this offseason and have made wholesale changes to their roster in the last year. They finished 5-11 for the second straight season, but are looking to turn things around in the near future.

      Johnson believes,The arrow, is pointing up for the Jets and that helped make his decision easier.

      ''I'm still young, I'm 28 and my whole goal is to win a championship, I mean,'' he said. ''That's always been my goal. I'll play this game for free. Money doesn't really matter to me. I love winning that much. I just wanted to go somewhere that was comfortable and I'd have a chance at winning.''

      The money certainly helps, of course. And, Johnson has big-time plans for his first big purchase since signing with the Jets.

      ''It's going to be buying my mother a house,'' Johnson said. ''I want to get her a house, man. She deserves it.''

      Penn State held its pro day on Tuesday for departing Nittany Lions with NFL prospects to show off their stuff to scouts.

      Artemi Panarin recorded his second career hat trick and added an assist as the Columbus Blue Jackets stretched their winning streak to nine games with a 5-3 victory over the New York Rangers Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

      Panarin,adidas Connor McDavid jersey, who also recorded a hat trick against the Rangers while playing for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2016,adidas Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey, notched his fourth career four-point game by scoring the Blue Jackets' first goal and their last two tallies.

      Alexander Wennberg and defenseman Markus Nutivarra also scored for Columbus while Sergei Bobrovsky made 29 saves.

      Kevin Hayes scored a shorthanded goal while Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider scored power-play goals for the Rangers.

      Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves. Lundqvist also withstood a collision with Columbus left winger Matt Calvert in the third period and stayed in the game after his shoulder hit the ice.

      The Blue Jackets struck first with 6:06 remaining in the first period by winning a faceoff and executing effective puck movement.

      Boone Jenner won a faceoff against Hayes and dumped the puck in behind the net where Thomas Vanek retrieved it. Vanek made a backhand pass and it appeared to surprise Wennberg,Authentic Jordan Eberle jersey, who hesitated before releasing a wrist shot from the slot that went over Lundqvist's glove side.

      The Blue Jackets took a 2-0 lead with 10:32 remaining in the second when Panarin scored his first goal.

      When it comes to fixing the catch rule, it appears that the NFL didn’t go back to square one. However, the league apparently has decided to put the bus in reverse.

      ” NFL executive V.P. of football operations Troy Vincent told Mark Maske of the Washington Post. “We looked at plays and said: Do you want that to be a catch? And then we applied that to the rule.”,“We worked backward

      So what changes could be made?

      “Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we’ll reverse that,” Vincent said. “Going to the ground, it looks like that’s going to be eliminated. And we’ll go back to the old replay standard of reverse the call on the field only when it’s indisputable.”

      That last line is interesting,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey, the NFL changed the language of the process for overturning a ruling on the field,Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey, to say the least. Recently,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, but not the actual standard. “Indisputable visual evidence” of an error became “clear and obvious evidence” of a mistaken call. The bar,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, however, should have been no higher or lower.

      The reality is that, the man for whom the procedure was created — Dean Blandino — left the NFL for FOX. His replacement, in the first year that the league office had final say over replay review,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, Al Riveron, often struggled to apply the proper standard in 2017, overturning decisions regarding the catch rule based not on deference to the ruling on the field but a fresh, frame-by-frame look at the play.

      In Super Bowl LII, Riveron upheld a pair of Eagles touchdowns that,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, based on the standard he used during the season,Womens Julio Jones Jersey, quite possibly would have been overturned.

      The best solution to the catch rule would be to exempt entirely from replay review the third element,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey, which requires the player to have the ball for some amount of time before it officially becomes a catch. Since that’s a subjective decision,Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey, it should be treated the same as judgment calls like pass interference.

      Any proposed rule changes by the NFL’s Competition Committee will be subject to approval by all owners, with at least 24 required to vote in favor of the alteration. If not enough get behind a given proposal,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, nothing will actually change.

      The Raiders missed out on signing Ryan Grant. The former Washington receiver visited the team's Alameda training complex,Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey, but left without a contract and ultimately chose to sign a one-year, $5 million deal with Indianapolis.

      The lost that one, but are undeterred in their quest to upgrade the receiver corps.

      They already signed Jordy Nelson and let Michael Crabtree walk,Authentic Joey Bosa Jersey, hoping for steady production and quality locker room leadership in the exchange.

      Cordarrelle Patterson was traded to New England on Sunday, creating a spot in the position group.

      The Raiders tried to fill it with Grant. No go,Womens Allen Robinson Jersey, no matter.

      They hosted veteran Eric Decker on Tuesday,Womens Joey Bosa Jersey, according to multiple reports. They also declared interest in Allen Hurns,Womens Melvin Ingram Jersey, a player the Jaguars released Tuesday morning.

      Hurns listed the Raiders among interested teams – he said there were 10 in total – in an interview with KFNZ radio in Charlotte,Authentic Dan Fouts Jersey,N.C.

      Hurns has a 1,000-yard season to his credit – his biggest year came with now-Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson as Jacksonville's O.C. -- and two relative down years since. Injuries have also played a part in that.

      Decker had a stellar four-year run with Denver and the New York Jets,Womens Dalvin Cook Jersey, but was less effective during two seasons in Tennessee. The 31-year old has experience in the slot, and could be a productive No. 3 option in Jon Gruden's offense.

      Gruden doesn't mind working with veteran receivers,Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey,something clear from his past and willingness to add Nelson as a major contributor.

      Even if the Raiders don't land a veteran receiver,Womens Dan Fouts Jersey, they could also look for a receiver in the NFL draft.

      Amari Cooper will remain the No. 1 option. Seth Roberts has $4.45 million guaranteed in 2018. Johnny Holton,Authentic Melvin Ingram Jersey, Isaac Whitney and Keon Hatcher are also on the roster.

      How highly do the Patriots value their mid-round draft picks? We'll find out as the run on NFL free agents continues this week.

      If Bill Belichick and Nick Caserio plan to make any signings from outside the organization, they'll have to factor into that decision what they will be giving up. Money and cap space matter . . . sure. But there is draft capital at stake.

      The Patriots are currently projected to land two third-round compensatory picks in 2019 after losing both Malcolm Butler and Nate Solder in free agency. There's real value there, and the decision-makers at One Patriot Place may be reluctant to give that up.

      Recent Patriots third-round picks include Derek Rivers, Duron Harmon and Logan Ryan. ,Womens John Ross Jersey, Tony Garcia, Joe Thuney,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey, Jacoby Brissett,Womens Jim Brown Jersey, Vincent Valentine,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey, Geneo Grissom

      Before we get into how the Patriots might lose those third-round comp picks if they remain active in free-agency, it's worth noting how comp picks are assigned.

      The compensatory-pick formula the league uses has never been published, but we know the basics. It's based on free agents lost and free agents acquired in a given year by a particular team. The level of those players is taken into consideration -- based on salary, playing time and other factors -- and then picks are issued to teams who have lost more (or better) free agents than they acquired. Only free agents whose contracts have expired (not players who've been released) qualify for the compensatory-pick formula.

      OverTheCap.com's Nick Korte is the best in the business when it comes to predicting how many picks teams will land based on their free-agent losses and acquisitions, and he has the Patriots down for two third-rounders in 2019 and nothing else.

      That may sound surprising given the Patriots lost Dion Lewis and Danny Amendola in addition to Butler and Solder, but that's the way the formula broke,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, according to Korte. The Adrian Clayborn signing (given a sixth-round value by OTC) cancelled out the Amendola loss (sixth-round value). The Matt Tobin signing (seventh-round value) cancelled out the Lewis loss (sixth-round value). And the Jeremy Hill signing (seventh-round value) cancelled out the Johnson Bademosi loss (sixth-round value).

      Why do Tobin and Hill cancel out Amendola and Lewis,Authentic John Ross Jersey, despite being lower-value moves? Here's how OTC describes the process. (Free agents who qualify for the comp-pick formula are known as Compensatory Free Agents or CFAs.)

      1. A CFA gained by a team cancels out the highest-valued available CFA lost that has the same round valuation of the CFA gained.



      2. If there is no available CFA lost in the same round as the CFA gained,Womens A.J. Green Jersey, the CFA gained will instead cancel out the highest-available CFA lost with a lower round value.

      3. A CFA gained will only cancel out a CFA lost with a higher draft order if there are no other CFAs lost available to cancel out.

      That final point is key. An example? The Seahawks recently signed CFA Jaron Brown,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, a seventh-round value. The only Seahawks "CFAs lost" available to cancel out the move were Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, both fourth-round values. Even though there's a three-round difference between Brown and Richardson, per Korte's projections, those moves still will cancel each other out.



      With that in mind, the Patriots may want to tread lightly when it comes to signing free agents who will qualify toward the comp-pick formula. They could lose out on the third-rounders they've received for Solder and Butler even if they sign a lower-value free agent.

      Players like Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro or Raiders linebacker NaVorro Bowman would count toward the comp-pick formula. Would their value to the team be such that losing a 2019 third-round pick wouldn't matter to the Patriots? Or would their comp-pick impact hurt their chances of being picked up in New England? My guess would be the latter.

      The good news for the Patriots is that re-signing their own players -- like offensive tackles LaAdrian Waddle and/or Cam Fleming -- doesn't impact the comp-pick setup. Neither does signing players who've been released,Womens DeShone Kizer Jersey, meaning the Patriots could theoretically make a splash by signing Ndamukong Suh or Eric Ebron and they'd retain their comp picks.

      Given the Patriots made just four draft picks last year, and since comp picks can be traded now (that rule was changed last year), it would come as little surprise if retaining those picks weighed heavily on Belichick and Caserio's decisions as they move through the remainder of the offseason.
