Robert Griffin III isn’t trying to win a starting job with the Ravens. That gig is Joe Flacco’s—at least for the time being.
Griffin isn’t really trying to become Flacco’s backup, either. After trading back into the first round of this year’s draft to select Lamar Jackson, the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner appears to be the future under center in Baltimore.wholesale nike nfl jerseys free shipping
No, Griffin’s auditioning for other teams as much as he is trying to hang on in Baltimore, despite his protestations to the contrary. Per Mike Jones of USA Today, he said:
“When they drafted Lamar, I didn’t look at it as a shot at me or a shot at Joe. It was ‘OK, Lamar is coming in here, and it’s our job to help him learn the offense and help him compete.’ So, for me, my job is to show them that I’m an asset to the team and not a detriment. … One [reporter] asked me if I was trying to showcase for other teams. No, my focus is, I’m a Baltimore Raven. I’m showcasing to them that this is where I’m supposed to be.'”nfl jersey wholesale nike
Griffin probably has more on the line in every snap right now than any other player listed in this article. If Griffin washes out with the Ravens, this may be it for him.
As Mark Inabinett reported for nike nfl wholesale AJ McCarron said he’s enjoying the battle to start at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills.
“It’s fun,” McCarron said. “You compete. You know, I’ve shared reps before. But it’s fun. We’re out here, everybody’s really learning, especially, speaking for myself, just trying to get timing with guys.”
We’ll see if the fifth-year veteran still feels that way in a couple of months.
This was supposed to be the year McCarron got his shot as an NFL starter after four years of carrying a clipboard for Andy Dalton. But the market for McCarron’s services was softer than expected. The two-year, $10 million deal he signed with the Bills hardly locked him in as the top quarterback for the team.nfl nike jersey wholesale
And that was before the Bills moved up in Round 1 to take Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen.
At OTAs, McCarron took the majority of first-team reps. But at this point McCarron’s at best a placeholder for Allen.

If McCarron wants to be a starter in the NFL, this might be his best shot.
Imperfect though it may be.
