Thank heavens for mulligans. And for late cuts.
Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome made possibly the worst deal in free agency when he agreed to sign wide receiver Ryan Grant to an eye-popping four-year, $29 million contract—which the team voided after Grant failed his physical.nfl jerseys from china
That it came on the same day the Raiders released veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree is purely coincidental.
In any event, Newsome wasted no time in making a push for the 30-year-old Crabtree, agreeing to terms on a three-year, $21 million contract with $13 million in guarantees two days after Oakland cut the wideout.official nfl jerseys cheap
Yes, Crabtree’s catches (58) and yardage (618) were down significantly relative to the year before. But he was a 1,000-yard receiver as recently as 2016, and he’s found the end zone at least eight times in each of the last three seasons.
It’s no secret that wide receiver was one of Baltimore’s biggest areas of need in 2018, but the team wasn’t in a position to enter the bidding wars for Robinson or Watkins.
It’s a whopper of an understatement to say that getting a pass-catcher of Crabtree’s quality nfl jersey for cheap and resume for $7 million per season was a nice consolation prize.

New Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks made it clear to offensive lineman Justin Pugh that the Redbirds were serious about bringing him from New York to the desert.
“Everything we do starts up front, and that’s the reason why we’re so intrigued with you, just being custom nfl jerseys cheap one the premier guards in the league,” Wilks told Pugh, according to Flight Plan (via Jess Root of USA Today’s Cards Wire).
The Cardinals then ponied up $15.75 million in guarantees as part of a five-year, $45 million deal.
Pugh has experience playing at both guard and tackle, although the 27-year-old stumbled a bit in the latter spot last year. As offensive line coach Ray Brown told Flight Plan, that won’t be a problem in Glendale.
“We’re going to put him at guard and play him [at] one position,” Brown said.
