New Rams cornerback Marcus Peters has an idea: Pay Aaron Donald.
“Hey man Authentic Michael Gallup Jersey , pay the man,” Peters said, via Greg Beacham of the Associated Press. “I mean [expletive]. You win the MVP? Come on now.”
Never mind that Donald didn’t win the MVP. He was the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year after making 11 sacks and forcing five fumbles last season.
Donald, who turns 27 on Wednesday, has not taken part in any voluntary work with the Rams this offseason. He held out of the offseason program, training camp and the preseason in 2017, reporting to the team a day before the Rams’ season opener.
Donald is scheduled to make $6.89 million this season in the final year of his rookie contract.
“Aaron is a vet, man,” the Rams’ other new cornerback Cam Robinson Jersey , Aqib Talib, said. “He’s going to take care of his own business. What’s his business is his business.”
Broncos linebacker Von Miller currently is the league’s highest-paid defensive player, with a $114.5 million deal that pays him $19.083 million per season. The Rams already have said they expect Donald to surpass Miller’s deal and have expressed optimism at getting something done.
But so far the sides have not reached agreement on an extension.
“It’s kind of where it’s been,” coach Sean McVay said. “We’re in constant dialogue and communication with his representation. It is something that we want to get resolved. As far as a timetable, don’t really have any dates on that. I don’t expect Aaron to be here until we get a resolution to that.”
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Aldrick Rosas can’t have a repeat of last season if he wants to remain the New York Giants‘ placekicker.
The 23-year-old from Southern Oregon might have been the biggest surprise of training camp last summer, making the roster as a first-year free agent. The 6-foot-3, rock-solid 233-pounder with a booming leg made almost every kick attempted in training camp to beat out veteran Mike Nugent. It was a no-brainer for then-coach Ben McAdoo and his staff.
Then came the regular season and everything went south for McAdoo, the team – and Rosas.
There were good moments: Rosas kicked in the opener at Dallas and then hitched a ride on co-owner’s Steve Tisch’s jet so he could get to California for the birth of his daughter and first child http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/aaron-rodgers-jersey , Karsyn Isabella.
”She is doing great, she is awesome,” Rosas said Friday after practice. ”It’s amazing. She is eating the house. She is growing so fast. It’s amazing.”
His season wasn’t so pretty.
Rosas made 18 of 25 field-goal attempts. That’s 72 percent and not good enough when coaches expect their kickers to hit 80 percent.
”It’s felt like I have done five years since last summer,” Rosas said. ”It’s been a ride. When you go back and reflect, it’s learning the game of football, being a professional and learning the game of life and being a Dad. I am still learning.”
Rosas said the biggest thing he learned as a player was the need to stick to a plan and take it one kick at a time, regardless of each result.
This season, he is trying to follow a routine after each kick. He wants to come to the sideline, take a sip of water and wait for his next field-goal attempt Johnny Gaudreau Jersey Kids , kickoff or extra point.
Rosas insists when he walks on the field, he is never looking to see how far he has to kick the ball, or where the ball is positioned. He is looking at his spot and focusing.
”So if I pushed the last one wide right, I am still going to line up the same, right down the middle,” he said. ”I am going to give it my best effort to make it. It may be the same result, but I am not going to let the last kick dictate what I do on this one.”
Rosas has spent a lot of time recently working with regular long snapper Zak DeOssie and new holder, punter Riley Dixon. Friday was the first time the unit practiced the hurry-up, last-minute field-goal attempts with the fans and media watching.
Rosas made all three attempts.
Looking back on last season http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-connor-williams-jersey , Rosas can’t say one thing went wrong. He said his confidence level was OK, but he felt he let his mind wander on what he should and should not be doing in practice with his kicking.
This year, he wants to do the same thing every kick and have a little fun.
New coach Pat Shurmur was hesitant to say what he expected from his kicker, although he agreed with someone with a cranky wizard-like voice from behind the podium curtain who chirped in: ”Just make `em.”
”I think it’s important,” Shurmur said. ”Again, you’ve got to see it happen in game situations. Most often, the kickers that you have in camp make them during the practice sessions, you’ve just got to watch it happen. It’s really not that much more complicated than that.”
