Wholesale Micah Hyde Jersey Online From China

We’ll find out soon whether Brian Gutekunst will take a more active approach to free agency than his predecessor did but if the Green Bay Packers new general manager values the draft as much as Ted Thompson did, he has a chance to make a significant impact there this year.

Gutekunst learned Friday that he picked up four additional draft picks via the NFL’s compensatory process that takes into account free-agent losses versus free-agent gains from the previous offseason.

Here are the picks the Packers gained on Friday:

Fourth round: No. 133 overall

Fifth round: Nos. 172 and 174

Sixth round: No. 207

According to the NFL, the Packers were awarded those four picks because they lost tight end Jared Cook, safety Micah Hyde, running back Eddie Lacy, guard T.J. Lang, linebacker Julius Peppers and center JC Tretter. The only signing that counted against the Packers was guard Jahri Evans. Tight end Martellus Bennett did not factor because he was released only seven games into his three-year, $21 million deal. The Packers did not get picks for every net free-agent loss because the NFL limits the compensatory picks to 32 each year.

Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst can be a player in his first draft with four compensatory picks added on Friday to the eight the team already had.

The Packers tied for the most this season along with the Bengals, Cowboys and Raiders. Since the compensatory program began in 1994, the Packers have gained an additional 42 picks – second most behind the Ravens (49).

In all, the Packers now own 12 selections in the draft. They have their own original seven picks (starting with No. 14 overall), an additional seventh-round pick from the Bills in the 2016 trade that sent linebacker Lerentee McCray to Buffalo plus the four compensatory picks. It gives them one pick in each of the first three rounds, two in the fourth, three in the fifth, two in the sixth and two in the seventh.

“There was a foundation of draft, develop and retaining our core players; that won’t change a whole lot,” Gutekunst said at his introductory news conference last month. “That’s going to be the foundation of the way we build the roster. But I do think I will lead in my own personality and probably a little bit more aggressive in certain areas. We’re not going to leave any stone unturned as far as every avenue of player acquisition. Doesn’t mean we’re always going to get to the finish and actually sign the guy, but we’re going to go throughout the entire process and be in on every possible acquisition.”

Cheap Authenti Mitchell Trubisky Jersey Online

How would the 2017 NFL draft have looked if teams knew then what they know now? How long would Deshaun Watson last? Would the Bears still pick Mitchell Trubisky to be their quarterback of the future? How early would Marshon Lattimore go?

With the regular season in the rearview mirror, our panel of NFL Insiders took a crack at re-drafting the first five picks of last year’s draft class. The panel included Matt Bowen, Mike Sando, Aaron Schatz, Kevin Seifert and Field Yates.

As a reminder, the actual top five of last year’s draft went as follows:

1. Browns: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M
2. Bears: Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
3. 49ers: Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford
4. Jaguars: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
5. Titans: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

Note: For the purpose of this re-draft, we reverted to the original 2017 draft order, before Chicago traded up to take Trubisky at No. 2. Cleveland held the first pick, followed by San Francisco, Chicago, Jacksonville and Tennessee.

1. Cleveland Browns: QB Deshaun Watson

Bowen: Defensive end Myles Garrett has the traits to become a star pass-rusher in the league, but Cleveland’s inability to hit on the quarterback position has consistently hindered the development of the entire franchise. That’s why I’m going with Watson here. From the high-level intangibles he brings onto the field to the dual-threat talent with which he attacks opposing defenses, Watson is a perfect fit for today’s NFL game and an answer to Cleveland’s long search for a leader at the position.

If we look back at Watson’s tape from 2017, and his 19 touchdowns in seven games before injuring his knee in practice, his ability to run a modern offense pairs with Hue Jackson’s philosophy. It’s the movement passes, the quick game, the shot throws off play-action and the RPOs (run-pass option) — with some QB runs sprinkled in. Play fast, open up throwing windows and use movement to dictate tempo from an offensive perspective.

With Watson in the mix, the Browns would most likely not be picking No. 1 overall again in the 2018 draft, and they also wouldn’t have added the No. 4 overall pick, which the Texans gave up last year in trading up for Watson. But if Cleveland had solidified its QB position last April, the Browns could have focused on building a winning culture around Watson, Josh Gordon and a solid offensive front this offseason. Instead, they’re still looking for their quarterback of the future.

2. San Francisco 49ers: DE Myles Garrett

Sando: Knowing the 49ers were able to land Jimmy Garoppolo from New England for a second-round choice made it easier — more defensible, at least — to bypass a quarterback in this re-draft. It’s not just me saying they might be able to find a QB another way. We all know they did exactly that, even though they could not have known how things would shake out when they traded back from the second overall spot on Day 1 of the 2017 draft.

Garrett was one of the most talented players in the class. Selecting him did not require much justification. He was there; I took him. Alvin Kamara and Marshon Lattimore were the other players from the draft who stood out in my mind as alternatives. The 49ers already have a good running back, and they’re running a system that has succeeded in the past with quite a few backs with varied pedigrees. Lattimore’s injury history was still a slight concern in my mind, even though he played more games than Garrett did this past season.

The Bears traded up a spot to draft Mitchell Trubisky in 2017.

3. Chicago Bears: QB Mitchell Trubisky

Yates: Quarterback play is the function of player ability, coaching and circumstances. Immediate success is not entirely uncommon — Dak Prescott was an MVP candidate as a rookie in 2016 — but it should also not be the barometer to measure a quarterback after just one season in the NFL.

After all, Chicago drafted Trubisky with the intention of redshirting him, a plan that went awry because of the performance of Mike Glennon.

When reviewing Trubisky’s rookie campaign, particularly when bypassing other players such as Lattimore with this pick, it’s important to analyze beyond what the numbers — 2,193 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions with a 59.4 percent completion percentage — tell us about him. Trubisky played within an offense whose top wide receiver for much of his time as the starter was either Dontrelle Inman, cast off by the Chargers for a late conditional draft pick, or Kendall Wright, who signed a one-year deal after not fully meeting expectations in Tennessee.

When the Bears hired Matt Nagy as their new head coach this offseason, a prevailing narrative was that the team aspires to recreate a Sean McVay-Jared Goff dynamic with Nagy and Trubisky. That isn’t a certainty to happen given how expediently McVay and Goff found success, but if the Bears passed on Trubisky in this spot, the team would have had — and still have — a massive quarterback quandary.

Banking on player development via a strong coaching staff that would be in place for Trubisky’s second year plus the undeniable talent he brings to the table, he remains the pick at No. 3 overall.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Patrick Mahomes II

Schatz: After a 10-6 playoff season, I’m sure the Jaguars still feel good about their selection of Leonard Fournette. But I’m a strong believer that you don’t take a running back this high in the draft — especially one who won’t even average 4 yards per carry as a rookie. Kamara was the best rookie running back, but he doesn’t really fit the power style the Jaguars want from their lead back, so he wouldn’t make sense here either.

The Jaguars are so imbalanced that it seems absurd to suggest they needed a defensive player with the No. 4 pick. Lattimore or Tre’Davious White would be fantastic additions to most teams, but Jacksonville already has two outstanding outside corners (Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye) and a reasonable nickelback (Aaron Colvin).

No, the Jaguars need to be honest with themselves about their need at the most important position in the game: quarterback. Yes, Blake Bortles ranked 12th in ESPN’s Total QBR metric this season, but that was his best career finish by far, and the positive performance was grouped into a handful of games. Overall, Bortles was the least consistent quarterback in the league.

He has four years of experience now. It’s probably never going to get better than this. The Jaguars need to find a quarterback who can carry the team even on days the defense doesn’t have a stellar performance. And a team that wants to build on defense and running the ball needs a quarterback with a big arm who can take advantage of the play-action opportunities deep. So, say hello to Mahomes, who in our re-draft world is now the heir apparent to Bortles in Jacksonville instead of Alex Smith in Kansas City. Mahomes was the highest-rated quarterback last year in Football Outsiders’ QBASE projections, and the success of Goff and Case Keenum in 2017 means less reticence about drafting a quarterback out of an Air Raid college system.

5. Tennessee Titans: CB Marshon Lattimore

Seifert: The Titans entered the draft with two first-round picks, along with clear needs at receiver and defensive back. They chose receiver Corey Davis at No. 5 and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson at No. 18.

Davis proved to be a promising — if late-developing — prospect. Jackson had a solid rookie year. But it’s now clear that Lattimore is a special player, one who earned Pro Bowl honors and was one of the NFL’s top cornerbacks by the end of the season.

In this version, the Titans get the best cover man in the draft at No. 5 and then sift through the remaining receivers at No. 18 or beyond — such as JuJu Smith-Schuster or Cooper Kupp, who weren’t drafted until the second and third rounds, respectively.

Cheap Authentic Eli Manning Womens Jersey

The NFL season can dramatically affect one’s confidence — in either direction. Sometimes what you thought you knew in August turns out to be dead wrong. Sometimes you’re happy about that, and sometimes you’re not.

Which brings us to the latest edition of ESPN’s Quarterback Confidence Index, also known as the toughest one yet.

Remember, the index ranks each team’s confidence in its overall quarterback situation. It does not simply rank starters, assess 2017 performances or predict who will be good the longest. We have to factor in health — short term and long term — age, contract situations and quality of backups.

Which makes things confusing when you factor in the following:

The Patriots, who have been the no-brainer No. 1 since we started doing this last year, have traded both of the well-regarded backups to their 40-year-old starter since August.

The Vikings are winning games with a third-stringer, and all three of their quarterbacks are eligible for free agency.

The Giants’ surprise late-season benching of Eli Manning for Geno Smith.

The 49ers could have their QB of the future on their roster, but he hasn’t actually started a game for them (though he will this week).

Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, Carson Palmer, Ryan Tannehill and Andrew Luck are all hurt.

The whole Bills thing.

With all of that in mind, this thing has been shaken up — starting right at the very top.

Click on the links below to go directly to your team.

1. Philadelphia Eagles

The only negative is sample size as Carson Wentz is still less than two years removed from playing for North Dakota State. But the other shoe kind of refuses to drop in Philly, where Wentz’s development has accelerated quicker than even the Eagles could have imagined. Wentz is hanging 30 points on the board every week, converting almost every third down and exhibiting total command with no sign of letting up. He’s 24 years old, which means the future is bright. He won’t cost the Eagles any real quarterback money until 2020. Nick Foles is an experienced backup who knows the system should anything happen. It’s crazy that it happened so fast, but the Eagles’ quarterback situation may be the envy of the league right now.

2. Seattle Seahawks

This was a tough call, because it doesn’t seem fair to penalize the Patriots for dealing away their backup plan when the Seahawks never had one in the first place. So in the absence of a viable backup situation for either Seattle or New England, we’re slotting the Seahawks at No. 2 mainly because Russell Wilson is 12 years younger than Tom Brady. Wilson is doing hero’s work this season, with no run game or pass protection and a defense shredded by injuries. He leads the team in rushing yards by almost 200 and is only three rushing attempts behind team leader Eddie Lacy. If Seattle had the same record as Philly and New England, Wilson would be the MVP front-runner. The Seahawks would be toast if he got hurt and they had to go with Austin Davis, but Wilson has never missed a game.

3. New England Patriots

It says everything about Tom Brady that the Patriots are still this high. He’s basically the best player in the league, and at age 40, he’s doing things players half his age can only dream of doing. Brady has given us no reason to doubt his plans to play until his mid-40s, so we take his word for it — but only to a certain extent. Continuing his level of play past 40 would be unprecedented, so it can’t be assumed he will. And with Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett no longer there, the overall confidence in the quarterback situation has to take a hit — especially when you factor in the Patriots’ team goals. It’s pretty tough to imagine current backup Brian Hoyer coming back from 25 points down to win the Super Bowl.

4. Atlanta Falcons

Matt Ryan is not having the MVP season he had in 2016, but he’s still top five in Total QBR, and 32 years old is still part of a quarterback’s prime. It was a tough call between the Falcons and the Lions for this spot, but Atlanta gets the edge due to its confidence in backup Matt Schaub and his knowledge of the scheme, even though Ryan doesn’t miss games.

5. Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford is not about missing games, either. Any issues he had with health are buried way back in the early part of his career. He now plays through pain and has delivered one of his most productive seasons in the wake of his record contract extension. He already has cracked 3,000 yards and has 21 touchdowns against just six interceptions. Jake Rudock is the untested backup.

6. New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees is another guy who gets marked down for age. It’s not personal, believe me. All these guys are younger than I am. I hate to do it, but Brees turns 39 in January, so you have to wonder how much longer he can sustain this. The Saints have run the ball well enough and played good enough defense this season that Brees hasn’t needed to be his usual dominant self. Still, he has shown he can be when necessary. He’s not signed beyond this season, but that’s a formality. He’ll stay as long as he wants in New Orleans, and he has no desire to leave. That’s good, because his successor isn’t on the roster.

7. Los Angeles Chargers

Rinse, repeat. Philip Rivers isn’t as old as Brees or Brady, but he’ll turn 36 in December and is obviously closer to the end than to the beginning. He’s also on fire right now, and could lead the Chargers to a stunning comeback in the AFC West. He’s another never-missed-a-game guy; he’s scheduled to start his 188th consecutive regular-season game on Sunday against the Browns. Kellen Clemens and Cardale Jones are the backups, and Jones is at least an interesting long-range prospect.

8. Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger is 35 years old, and of course you’ve heard by now that he publicly contemplated retirement last offseason and likely will again each offseason. Armed with the best receiver and running back in the game, Roethlisberger has a shot at a third Super Bowl ring this season, even if he doesn’t seem like his old, spry, accurate self. Landry Jones and rookie Joshua Dobbs are the backups. Jones has shown he can at least play a little if needed. Dobbs could turn out to be the future, but who knows?

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has had some of the worst performances of his young career over the past few weeks.

9. Dallas Cowboys

A couple of weeks ago, we were ready to rocket the Cowboys into the top tier of this list. Dak Prescott still feels like one of the best bets to assume the quarterback greatness mantle for the next decade, but he has thrown five interceptions and no touchdown passes in the first three games of running back Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension. This serves to remind us that Elliott, not Prescott, should have been offensive rookie of the year in 2016 and leads us to at least tap the brakes on the Prescott hype train until Zeke gets back. Still high on Dak, but it has been a good few weeks for those who wonder whether he’s a product of his environment.

10. Green Bay Packers

Because Aaron Rodgers is hurt. We expect him to come back — maybe even later this season. And the way backup Brett Hundley played last week against the Steelers, a Rodgers return would make Green Bay a strong candidate for the No. 1 spot on this list. But Rodgers still can’t play and Hundley is obviously not a finished product. The Packers remain this high because the confidence is high in Rodgers for 2018 and beyond. But right now, he’s hurt.

11. Oakland Raiders

The Raiders committed big money to Derek Carr in the offseason, so they’re confident in him. And he’s on track for career highs in completion percentage, yards per attempt and Total QBR. His interceptions are up since last season, but they almost had to be, with the season not going the way the Raiders hoped it would. Still, they remain confident in Carr, who’s just 26 and likely to be their guy for a long time. EJ Manuel and Connor Cook form a better backup group than what a lot of teams have.

12. Carolina Panthers

Total QBR is a 0-to-100 scale. Cam Newton has had five games this season in which his QBR was under 35.0 and three in which it exceeded 87.0. That’s a wide range of potential outcomes, and it makes for a roller-coaster ride for a player who remains one of the game’s top enigmas. Newton has dealt with shoulder and now thumb injuries this season, but he has played through them all and has the Panthers at 8-3 — one win from what would be just the third winning season they’ve had in his seven as their starter. See? Enigma. The Panthers have confidence in him, and a good bit of it in backup Derek Anderson as well. But sometimes you have to wonder where the consistency is.

13. Washington

The easy gag here is, “If Washington were really confident in Kirk Cousins, why wouldn’t the team sign him long term?” And there’s more than a kernel of truth to that. Cousins is in his third straight season of elite-level quarterback production, and he’s doing it while his offensive line crumbles around him, his top two running backs are on injured reserve, his tight end can’t get on the field and his overhauled wide receiver corps has taken three-quarters of a season to sort itself out. At this point, Washington must have confidence in Cousins as a guy who can deliver at a high level. But since he’s unsigned and it would cost Washington a fortune to use the transition or franchise tag on him next season, the team can’t be confident it will have him much longer. Colt McCoy remains the backup, if you can believe that.

14. Los Angeles Rams

The Rams’ confidence in second-year man Jared Goff is light-years beyond what it was at the start of the season. The way Goff has responded to new head coach Sean McVay and offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur makes it seem that his No. 1 overall pick pedigree could pan out after all and that the Rams could stay out of the Cousins market this offseason. Goff is still young and has a ways to go before we’re sure about him. But all of this season’s signs are positive confidence-builders. Sean Mannion and Brandon Allen are the backups, which means an injury to Goff could kill the Rams’ hopes for playoff success this season. But who knows, maybe McVay is a magician.

15. Minnesota Vikings

How are we defining confidence? Regardless of your answer, how do we apply it to the Vikings’ quarterback situation? Yeah, they’re winning with Case Keenum somehow. But you want to try to convince me he’s not one three-interception game away from getting benched for Teddy Bridgewater, who hasn’t played in a game since 2015? Oh, and by the way, both of these guys are free agents after the season, as is Week 1 starter Sam Bradford, who’s out for the season with a knee injury. Will any of them be back? Will all of them be back? Kudos to coach Mike Zimmer, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and the Vikings for making this work. There’s no reason to doubt their ability to continue to do so. But there’s as much volatility in this situation as there is in all of the ones that aren’t working. The difference is, this one is.

16. Cincinnati Bengals

Smack-dab in the middle always feels like the right spot for Andy Dalton, whose current Total QBR of 42.1 would be a career low if the season ended today. He has some of those same week-to-week consistency issues we talked about with Newton, minus the running and the potential for the razzle-dazzle. AJ McCarron remains one of the better-regarded backups in the league, which pushes the Bengals’ ranking up a bit, but he might not be in Cincinnati next season.

It has been a down year for Tennessee's Marcus Mariota, who has thrown nine touchdown passes against 12 interceptions.

17. Tennessee Titans

Who saw a step-back season coming for Marcus Mariota in Tennessee? Something’s off track here, and while the future remains bright for Mariota and his talent, you always have to wonder when the development doesn’t happen as smoothly as you anticipated it would. Mariota also brought health questions into the season and has been a bit nicked up this year, too. He has veteran backups in Matt Cassel and Brandon Weeden, so maybe they could hold it down if they needed to. But Tennessee’s confidence is all tied up in Mariota’s health and the hope that he busts out of his slump to finish this season.

18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It already felt like a step-back season for Jameis Winston. Then came the injury. He’ll make his first start in three weeks on Sunday against the Packers. He’s still the quarterback the Bucs plan to build around for the long term, and they believe in him. But with a potential coaching change looming, there’s volatility here, and Winston remains an unfinished product. Ryan Fitzpatrick is what he is, but he’s a veteran backup who hasn’t embarrassed the Bucs in a lost season.

19. Houston Texans

Fast-forward to next season, and if Deshaun Watson is back to full strength, the confidence at quarterback in Houston will be through the roof. That’s how impressive Watson was before his knee injury, and with a full recovery expected, Houston ranks ahead of a lot of teams on this list. But with Tom Savage in there for now and turning it over three times a game, confidence for the rest of this season is low.

20. Kansas City Chiefs

What on earth has happened in Kansas City over the past two months? Alex Smith was an MVP front-runner, in line for a big new contract next offseason from the Chiefs or someone else. Now, having lost five of the past six games, the fans want him benched for Patrick Mahomes — who could be great but also a huge disaster. Confidence? Oh, confidence? Wherefore art thou, confidence?

21. Indianapolis Colts

A couple of reasons to like the Colts’ situation more than the ones that remain on this list: 1) It’s a better bet than not that Andrew Luck is back next year, and 2) Jacoby Brissett looks like a young developmental backup who might have the goods. They’re down here because Luck is out for the season, but if he comes back, the Colts will shoot up the list.

22. Baltimore Ravens

It says a lot about Joe Flacco and where he is in his career that the Ravens fall below the Chiefs and Colts. To watch this past Monday night’s game was to see a team win in spite of its quarterback play. The Ravens have nothing going down the field, are living on checkdown throws that anyone could make and are stuck with Flacco and his monster contract for at least two more years after this one. Backup Ryan Mallett is not viable. This could be a playoff team because of the defense, but it’s hard to imagine the Ravens matching up with other playoff teams with this quarterback situation.

23. Chicago Bears

Too soon to have confidence in Mitchell Trubisky, too late to believe in Mike Glennon. What the Bears have is hope for the future because of Trubisky’s talent. The QB has the chance to show over the final five weeks that there’s something on which to build. But no one knows who will be coaching him next season or beyond. This situation is too tough to forecast.

24. New York Giants

Welp, we had to change this one on the fly. Geno Smith gets the start this week, with totally untested (and lightly practiced!) third-round rookie Davis Webb expected to see plenty of action before season’s end. No way to have any confidence in this situation for the rest of the season, or even beyond that. Will a still-healthy but ego-bruised Eli Manning be back in 2018? Will the Giants draft a quarterback with what’s sure to be a very high pick next spring? No way to answer the staggering number of questions this team has created for itself at QB. The best thing we can say is that the Giants are the only team in the league with a backup quarterback who has never missed a game due to injury and has been named Super Bowl MVP twice. So that’s something.

Jimmy Garoppolo will make his first start for the 49ers on Sunday against the Bears.

25. San Francisco 49ers

Another unknown. Rookie C.J. Beathard has shown some flashes, but he’s hurt and the new guy in town is Jimmy Garoppolo, who was acquired last month from the Patriots for a second-round pick. The Niners think Garoppolo could be their quarterback of the future, and if he plays well over the final five weeks and they sign him long term, that will indicate a high level of confidence. But he has yet to prove anything, and it remains possible (though not likely) that they move on from him and look elsewhere (Cousins?) in the offseason. Stay tuned on confidence in San Francisco.

26. New York Jets

Entering a grim zone now. Josh McCown has played more than well enough to deserve the Jets’ confidence as their starter for the rest of the season, but then what? He’s 38 years old and has never played like this before. He’s surely not the long-term answer, and bringing him back to start next season would be like repeating the Ryan Fitzpatrick mistake of 2016. The Jets have no idea what they have in Christian Hackenberg, who still hasn’t played. And their record might not be bad enough to put them at the top of the draft. This is a team that can’t possibly have any confidence in its long-term QB situation, which is as great an unknown as any in the league.

27. Miami Dolphins

Hard to imagine Jay Cutler putting off broadcasting another year to come back and do this again. Ryan Tannehill should be back from injury in time for next season, but where was the confidence in him to begin with? The Dolphins can escape that contract and start over if they want. Matt Moore is a fine backup but no more than that. There are more questions than answers in Miami.

28. Buffalo Bills

We don’t have to wonder about coach Sean McDermott’s confidence in Tyrod Taylor. It was pretty clear that he doesn’t have much once he benched Taylor for Nathan Peterman. Peterman, as you might have heard, threw five interceptions in the first half of his first start in Week 11 and hasn’t played since. Not too confidence-inspiring. The Bills are back to Taylor, which means they’ll enter the offseason back at square one. Taylor is better than a lot of people think and could get the Bills to the playoffs this season. But this is a confidence ranking, and again, we know they don’t have any in him.

29. Arizona Cardinals

So much is unknown here. Will Carson Palmer, out for the year with injury, retire at season’s end or come back in 2018? If he doesn’t come back, can Blaine Gabbert play well enough from here on out to get a shot as the 2018 starter? Will Arizona finally draft a QB? Will Bruce Arians retire from coaching, and if so, how does that affect the team’s vision and decisions at the position? No solid answers here, no real confidence.

30. Cleveland Browns

Still a long way from confidence, but rookie DeShone Kizer has actually been pretty good in two of the past three games. They were road games, too — in Detroit and Cincinnati — and he handled himself pretty well. He has a strong arm, adds something with his legs, and if receiver Josh Gordon has anything to offer, it’s possible the group around Kizer will offer opportunity to build some confidence in the final few games of the season. Hey, you never know. But he has shown enough to keep this team out of the basement of these rankings.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars

Blake Bortles is exactly what the Jaguars thought he was before the season. As usual, a completion percentage under 59 with 12 touchdowns against eight interceptions. The Jags win with their run game and their defense, and when they have to ask Bortles to win it for them, they end up disappointed. They’ll almost certainly move on at season’s end, which puts them in the bucket of teams that have no idea what they’ll do at the position in 2018 and beyond. Current backup Chad Henne is not the future.

32. Denver Broncos

What a mess. Paxton Lynch finally gets in there, and now he’s hurt. So they’re back to Trevor Siemian, whose once promising season went so far off the rails they had to go to Brock Osweiler before Lynch was healthy. They still don’t know what they have in Lynch (except a guy who has been hurt a lot), and what they’ve seen from Siemian and Osweiler doesn’t offer short-term or long-term answers. It’s possible there’s no team in the league more lost at QB than John Elway’s Broncos.

Cheap Chargers Hunter Henry Home Jersey

Although it took six weeks, Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry has found a rhythm as a consistent receiving threat for quarterback Philip Rivers.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Henry’s lack of touches through the first quarter of the season was a point of frustration during the team’s 0-4 start.

“People can take him away, too,” Lynn said. “Sometimes you have to take what the defense gives you. If they give you Hunter early, we’ll take Hunter early. We got to Hunter when we needed to and he made plays.”

Henry was not targeted in two of the first three games and had seven catches for 80 receiving yards in the other game, a Week 2 loss to Miami.

In the past three games, Henry has been targeted 18 times, finishing with 10 receptions for 148 yards and two scores.

With Antonio Gates looking to break the NFL’s all-time touchdown receiving record for tight ends, there was a focus was on getting him the ball early in the season. Now that he has the record, Henry has played more snaps than Gates in the last two weeks (100 snaps for Henry, 75 for Gates).

“I felt like I put a lot of work in all of our practices and games, and last year,” Henry said. “I knew it was coming. I knew I had to show up and continue to put up the work.”

In Sunday’s victory over the Oakland Raiders, the Chargers used three-tight end sets on 16 snaps, which helped define the matchups Rivers wanted for Henry in the passing game.

On the winning drive, Rivers twice found Henry for two explosive gains, including a 34-yard pitch-and-catch on a corner route from the Chargers’ own 8-yard line to give them some breathing room.

“Those are plays I get excited about in a quarterback-to-pass-catcher relationship,” Rivers said. “Hunter is still young as a player in our time together, and that was kind of a back-shoulder corner route, which just doesn’t happen much. I’ve thrown Gates a handful of those, but I haven’t thrown Hunter one of those ever.

“And it happens on the fly in the biggest drive of the game and he sees it, feels it and then goes and gets more with it. So those plays, not only was it big for today [Sunday], those are big plays as you continue to grow with a player.”

Look for Henry to be involved in the offense again on Sunday when the Chargers host the Denver Broncos.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, offenses have completed 73 percent of their passes to tight ends for three touchdowns and no interceptions against Denver’s defense, which is fourth-worst in the NFL. Last week, New York Giants tight end Evan Engram finished with five catches for 82 yards and a score against the Broncos.

“We’ve got a lot of guys on offense that we’re trying to do things and include in that,” Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said when asked about Henry’s usage. “Hunter is one of those guys. There’s going to be weeks where he gets some plays, and there are going to be others where he may not get as many touches.

“At the end of the game, he made two big catches on that last drive, which was part of the scheme that we felt was a good tactic against those guys. So it was nice to see him make those plays. There’s no question he’s a really good young football player who contributes a lot.”
