Sometimes teams will pay players for what they’ve done. Other times they’ll pay them for what they think they can do. I can only imagine that’s what the Bills were doing when they agreed to give edge-rusher Trent Murphy a three-year, $21 million deal, per Schefter, despite the fact the 27-year-old is coming off a season cheap nfl jersey that was lost as a result of both a torn ACL and a performance-enhancing drug suspension.
And it’s not as though Murphy was lighting up the football world before that. The 2014 second-round pick had just six sacks as a fairly regular starter his first two years before recording nine while serving as a rotational guy in 2016.
They probably could have landed Alex Okafor or cheap nfl authentic jerseys Adrian Clayborn with similar commitments, and both of those rushers have better track records.
Yes, this could look like a steal in a year or two, but it seems like an unnecessary risk.
Nine-time Pro Bowler Julius Peppers might not have a lot left at the age of 38, but the Carolina Panthers defensive end still recorded 11 sacks while playing just 50 percent of the team’s defensive snaps in 2017. Bringing him back was a no-brainer, and doing so at only $5 million is a thing of beauty for a Panthers team that doesn’t have a lot of salary-cap room this offseason.
It’s clear Peppers is playing for the ring, not the money. He’s a legend in Carolina, and he has already made close to $160 million in his 16-year career. The Panthers are fortunate to be the team he chooses to continue to play for at a comically discounted rate, but they also deserve credit for not doing anything to screw that up cheap authentic nfl jerseys . A lot of less functional teams might have.
We don’t have financial info here yet, but the New England Patriots have suffered so many lossses this week and Rex Burkhead is so damn solid that it’s hard not to love New England’s decision to keep the 27-year-old running back on a three-year deal.
The contract is heavy on guaranteed money, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, which is cool because Burkhead should have a longer shelf life than your typical NFL running back. The Patriots don’t work him too hard, and he touched the ball only 30 times during his first three seasons in the league.
Burkhead recorded a career-high 518 yards from scrimmage and scored a cheap nfl jerseys from china career-high eight touchdowns in 2017. With Dion Lewis gone, look for the Pats to utilize him more and Burkhead to provide New England an excellent return on its investment (whatever it is).
