Life-after-football plans on hold for Juli Custom Phillies Jersey us Peppers

The Future Hall of Famer recently shared what he hopes to do when his playing days are done.

Julius Peppers was torn.

Play a 17th NFL season or finally start his life after football?

We know the answer now. Peppers signed another one-year deal with the Panthers last week. But before he put pen to paper, he spent weeks mulling the decision down in Miami.

“If I decide to retire I don’t want it to be one of those situations where, you know, after a couple of months I have the itch to play again,’’ Peppers told digital media producer Austin Gaines earlier this month. “T hat’s not something I wa Custom Phillies Jersey Cheap nt to do. I want to put a lot of thought into it and make the final decision. I don’t want to waver on it at all.

“When you make a  Custom Phillies Jersey decision as big as this, you n Women’s Philadelphia Phillies Authentic Personalized Home White Baseball Jersey eed to take a lot of time and  Customized Philadelphia Phillies Jersey make sure it’s the right thing. Yeah, it’s going to be final once I decide one way or the other.’’

So Peppers’ eventual foray into real estate is at least another year away. Yes, real estate. Click ‘play’ below to learn more about those plans and to see the 6-foot-7, 295-pound Peppers play dad.

Transc Custom Phillies Jersey ript: Jarius Wright conference call

Panthers’ latest free agent acquisition isn’t one to demand the ball but is demanding of himself when the ball comes his way.

CHARLOTTE – Wide receivers are saddled with the stigma of being on the selfish side – fair or not, wrong or right.

Not this Wright.

“I was raised to not be a pouter,” said Jarius Wright, the free agent wide receiver who signed a three-year contract with the Panthers on Tuesday. Wright, who spent his first six NFL seasons as a quietly productive target for the Vikings, credits his humble upbringing by hard-working parents – an Arkansas state trooper and a schoolteacher – for his undemanding but determined demeanor.

“I hung out with the older kids. My brother is eight years older than me, so I really didn’t get a chance to pout and cry because they would make fun of me if I did,” Wright said. “I didn’t want to be that kid.”

Not to say that Wright doesn’t want the ball. When it does come his way, he prides himself on not letting anything get in his way, earning monikers like “Mr. Third Down” and “Mr. Clutch” from teammates.

“When the ball is thrown Custom Phillies Jersey  to me – regardless of whether I have a defender right on me or if it’s not a good throw, I usually come up with the ball – knock on wood.”

The Panthers are counting on more of the same from Wright in the pairing of another reliable target with quarterback Cam Newton. In this case, the receiver also will be paired with an offensive system he knows well: New offensive coordinator Norv Turner held the same role with the Vikings for all of the 2014 and 2015 seasons and part of 2016. Wright was never the Vikings’ top target but did amass 1,052 receiving yards in 34 games under Turner versus 987 yards in 45 games without him.

That was the jumping-off point for Wright’s conference call with the local media.

On reuniting with Turner: “Just playing for Norv and knowing all the experience that Norv has in this league, he’s been able to get it done as offensive coordinator pretty much anywhere he’s gone. That’s one thing that persuaded me. The other thing is that Norv also knows me; Norv knows what to expect from me. Us getting together and us teaming up, you definitely have a player and a coach that know each other.”

On having his two most productive NFL seasons with Turner: “I thought about that, too when I was thinking about how I could fit in Women’s Philadelphia Phillies Authentic Personalized Home White Baseball Jersey to his system. He has a lot of different routes, a lot of different ways to get receivers the ball – reverses, screens, down-the-field things. Having Cam and his strong arm, I know he can get the ball downfield, and that’s what Norv likes to do.”

On making the most of relatively limited opportunities: “I know if I get in my own head, I won’t be ready to catch those. If I get five passes, I won’t be ready to catch those if I stay in my own head and complain and pout about not playing or not getting the balls that I deserve. I don’t spend too much time on things like that. I continue to work on the future and getting my job done.

“That’s just kind of my personality, who I’ve been my whole life. I’ve always been able to take full advantage of every opportunity. And being in the NFL, you understand that at any time your number can be called, and if you’re not ready to play, you will look bad.”

On his relationship with Newton: “I don’t know him that well. I’ve had a chance to play against him three or four times now, so I know he’s one heck of a player. What he brings to the game – whether he’s throwing the ball or running the ball – is something I definitely want to pair my talents up with. I think the sky is the limit.”

On being released by Minnesota: “After I was released, I wasn’t too worried about it. I have full belief in my talents and full belief in what I can do as a player. I knew at the end of the day all I needed was an opportunity to prove m Men’s Philadelphia Phillies Authentic Personalized Home White Baseball Jersey yself. I knew I would be playing somewhere. I didn’t know where. But whenever teams could call my agents and check on me, the Panthers were one of the first calls.”

On the current crop of Carolina receivers: “I think very highly of these receivers. I wouldn’t come to a receiving corps that I thought was kind of deflated. From what I’ve seen on film, they have a great group of receivers. They have two good veteran receivers with me and Torrey (Smith). Torrey has played eight (seasons), and this is my seventh – to add two veteran receivers to a room that is already great.”

On playing in the slot: “With Norv, I don’t know. I played a little outside and inside. Norv does a great job of moving guys around. We have a lot of guys on this team that can do a lot of things. Norv puts guys in the best situations to make plays. To answer your question, I think I’ll play a little bit of both.”

On teaming up with former Vikings teammates Captain Munnerlyn and Matt Kalil: “Captain is still one of my good buddies. We still talk all the time. Having Matt Kalil and Captain here, of course they were my teammates and you always want to look for friends. It gives you someone to hang out with initially.”

On what he’s looking forward to about Charlotte: “The weather. That will be number one. I hear about how nice it is all the time. Riding around Charlotte today, it really felt like being back in Arkansas. It really felt like home. It has a real homey feeling. I love that about Charlotte.”

On being a successful third down receiver: “Besides just athletic ability, I like to call it FBI – my football intelligence. Just being in the right place at the right time, knowing your quarterback, knowing how they like to throw the ball and where they like to put  the ball. Being on the same page with your quarterback – being able to find an open spot in the zone or if it’s man coverage, keep running. My football intelligence has definitely helped me become a seven-year player in the NFL.”

Mock Draft Custom Phillies Jersey  Report 4.0

Taking a look at what analysts are projecting for Carolina’s top pick after the first wave of free agency.

Free agent signings usually fill team needs and alter the mock draft projections as a result. We’re seeing a bit of that for Carolina with 24th overall  Women’s Philadelphia Phillies Authentic Personalized Home White Baseball Jersey pick.

After cornerback Bashaud Breeland’s failed physical and nullified contract, it makes sense to see Josh Jackson listed here (and it’s safe to assume more corners will start to appear in future mock draft reports). The Iowa product is widely considered the corner prospect with the best ba ll skills – a trait Carolina desperately needs.

Guard Will Hernandez out of UTEP continues to be a popular choice to replace  Customized Philadelphia Phillies Jersey Andrew Norwell, who left for big money in Jacksonville.

The Panthers lost veteran tight end Ed Dickson to the Seahawks in free agency, so the Dallas Goedert projection is a logical one as Carolina continues to search for a No. 2 option behind Greg Olsen.

And while Julius Peppers excited all of Panther nation by deciding to come back for a 17th NFL season, this team needs to get younger at defensive end as it looks to Custom Phillies Jersey Cheap ward the future – hence the Sam Hubbard and Josh Sweat projectio Custom Phillies Jersey ns.

Panthers sign Jarius Wright t Custom Phillies Jersey o three-year contract

Carolina adds slot receiver who had success with offensive coordinator Norv Turner in Minnesota.

CHARLOTTE – Former Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright has signed a three-year deal with the Panthers, reuniting him with offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

“I think his style really fits the way we’re going to go about doing things,” said Turner, who spent two-and-a-half seasons coaching Wright in Minne Custom Phillies Jersey sota. “Very quick starter – explosive. And he’s a very natural player in the slot. He’s been very successful in that area.”

Minnesota released Wright, who they drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 draft, after he totaled 18 receptions for 198 yards and two touchdowns this past season.

The 5-foot-10, 191-pounder has posted 153 receptions for 2,039 yards and 10 touchdowns in six years. He’s been a productive player on third down, as 41 percent of his career catches and 45 percent of his career yardage have come on thi Women’s Philadelphia Phillies Authentic Personalized Home White Baseball Jersey rd down.

“That was a big part of what we did. We got him matched up in one-on-one situations, and I think he’s going to win most of those,” Turner said. “And he made a lot of big plays for us in the fourth quarter.”

Wright’s best season was 2014 with Turner, when he recorded 42 catches for 588 yards and two touchdowns. He was rewarded with a four-year extension following that productive campaign.

General manger Marty Hurney has expressed his desire to add more speed to the skill positions. Trading for Torrey Smith and signing Wright, who ran a 4.42 40-yard dash at the scouting combine, are moves that certainly help.

“We’ve added speed,” Turner said. “We’re get Men’s Philadelphia Phillies Authentic Personalized Home White Baseball Jersey ting guys that have had some success a Custom Phillies Jersey Cheap nd have been durable. They can really fly and they know how to play. That’s going to help the entire group.”

Joy for Benitez as Newcastle stun Mourinho’s United, Liverpool cruise Custom Brewers Jersey

LONDON (Reuters) – Newcastle United’s manager Rafa Benitez would have taken a victory against just about anyone Custom Brewers Jersey on Sunday, such was his side’s predicament, but a 1-0 win over Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United would have tasted that bit sweeter.

Huddersfield Town’s 4-1 home victory over Bournemouth earlier in the day meant Newcastle started their home clash against United in the Premier League’s bottom three.

Yet they responded with a gritty display, riding their luck at times to take the points courtesy of Matt Ritchie’s 65th-minute winner which propelled them from 18th to 13th.

The result also left second-placed United a whopping 16 points behind leaders Manchester City and looking anxiously Milwaukee Brewers Custom Jersey over their shoulders in what looks like becoming a tense battle for the remaining Champions League places.

Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 victory over Arsenal on Saturday had lifted the north London club to within four points of United and Liverpool sliced the gap to two after Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah scored in a nonchalant 2-0 win at Southampton in Sunday’s late kickoff.

Fifth-placed Chelsea can move to within three points of United with victory at West Brom on Monday.

There was a warm handshake between Benitez and Mourinho when the final whistle sounded at a tumultuous St James’ Park to confirm Newcastle’s first home league win since October.

But their previous history has been marked by frostiness — a result of former Liverpool manager Benitez twice getting the Personalized Brewers Jersey better of Mourinho’s Chelsea in Champions League semi-finals.

The fact that they have both managed Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan, with Mourinho enjoying a superior record, meant Benitez’s triumph on Sunday, only his second in the Premier League against Mourinho, had added meaning.

Ritchie rifled a shot past David De Gea in the 65th minute to punish a profligate United side who wasted several good chances with Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez culpable.

Newcastle dug deep for their manager and debutant keeper Martin Dubravka made several superb saves.

“They fought like animals,” Mourinho said of Benitez’s side.

“Newcastle’s players gave the sacrifices all managers like to see. Were they lucky? Yes. But sometimes you deserve that luck. They fought for their lives and that’s a beautiful thing.”


Martial was denied by a great save from Dubravka and had two efforts cleared off the line after the break.

Sanchez inexplicably failed to fire into an empty net after rounding Dubravka, shortly before Ritchie struck the winner.

“We had games in the past when we conceded late. We got lucky with some shots, but we showed the character, the commitment and the desire today,” Benitez said.

Liverpool were too slick for a feeble Southampton as they condemned the south coast side to a place in the bottom three.

Salah punished a mistake and squared for Firmino to score in the seventh minute and the livewire Egyptian then stroked home the second before halftime after a snappy passing move.

United have 56 points, Liverpool 54 and Tottenham 52 with Chelsea on 50.

It is equally tight at the bottom where the so-called trap door is looking more like a revolving door.

Huddersfield escaped the bottom three on Sunday as they snapped a five-game losing sequence.

Alex Pritchard fired Huddersfield in front after seven minutes and although Junior Stanislas levelled, the hosts were ahead again before the break thanks to Steve Mounie’s 27th-minute header from Aaron Mooy’s delivery.

Beninese striker Mounie’s shot was deflected in by Steve Cook after 66 minutes and Rajiv van la Parra tucked away a stoppage time penalty to complete a satisfying afternoon for David Wagner’s side.

Monday notebook:Josh Donaldson Jersey Daeshon Hall tweaks knee

Third-round defensive end looks likely to at least miss this week’s preseason game in Jacksonville.

CHARLOTTE — Rookie defensive end Daeshon Hall was taken Josh Donaldson Jersey off the field early in Monday’s practice after suffering a left knee contusion.

The Panthers will treat Hall and see how he responds, but as of late Monday afternoon, the team did not have a timetable for his return.

The third-round pick totaled 63 snaps in Carolina’s first two preseason games, totaling two tackles and two QB hurries.

Other injury updates

–Quarterback Cam Newton increased his workload, as the Panthers had hoped.

–Same with wide receiver Curtis Samuel.

–Players who didn’t practice: wide receivers Brenton Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey Bersin (shoulder), Fred Ross (ankle), Keyarris Garrett (leg), tight end Scott Simonson (hamstring), guards David Yankey (undisclosed) and Chris Scott (undisclosed), defensive tackles Vernon Butler (knee) and Toby Johnson (leg), linebacker Jared Norris (undisclosed), cornerback Corn Elder (knee), safety L.J. McCray (undisclosed).

What about Love? The thin defensive tackle group received a reinforcement with Kyle Love’s return.

The sixth-year veteran, who spent much of the past three weeks in a walking boot, twisted an ankle early in training camp.

“It’s healing faster than I think people expected,” Love said while walking off the practice field. “It’s one of those things where you’ve just got to work your way back into it, so that’s what I’m doing. I’m trying not to rush too much, but it’s hard.”

Running back puzzle: Running back Cameron Artis-Payne is a perfect example why the word ‘projected’ should have been attached to all those mock 53-man rosters you’ve likely seen since the draft.

The addition of Christian McCaffrey made many assume the Panthers would no longer keep a space open for Artis-Payne, but as Rivera pointed out after Artis-Payne rushed for a team-high 70 yards in Nashville, the third-year back is “having a tremendous camp.”

“He’s in a tough position because Jonathan (Stewart) has had three really good years for us,” Rivera said Monday when asked about Artis-Payne. “It’s tough to (not) get a guy with that kind of ability on the field. Hopefully we can.

“We’ve got a lot of pieces this year and I do believe he fits in our puzzle.”

Punter ‘problem’: Coaches don’t often look forward to punting, but with Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale Andy Lee and Mike Palardy currently in a too-close-to-call competition, Rivera had hoped to see more from them against the Titans.

“Unfortunately we only had two punts the other day and Mike got them both,” Rivera said. “So we’re going to start off with Andy (in Jacksonville).

“We’ve got to evaluate it. Both guys are kicking the ball very well for us right now.”

Science class: The Panthers were originally scheduled to practice at 2 p.m. Monday. Then head coach Ron Rivera remembered that was primetime for the solar eclipse.

“We did adjust our practice,” Rivera said after Monday morning’s session, “because I didn’t want one of our guys (to) sit there and say, “Hey, check it out!’”

Thanks to center Ryan Kalil, who came prepared with extra viewing glasses, Rivera and at least one-third of the roster got a safe look at the eclipse.

For most of his players, it was the first such event of their lifetime. For Rivera, it brought Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey back memories from 1979.

“I remember doing the whole cardboard cutout thing,” he said of the last total solar Josh Donaldson Womens Jersey eclipse in the U.S. “That was cool.”

Cam Newton ramps up Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey work at Monday’s practice

Quarterback Cam Newton gets his most extensive work since Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey the first week of training camp.

CHARLOTTE – Quarterback Cam Newton took another step forward Monday, taking part in every drill, including 7-on-7 and team work ahead of Thursday’s preseason game at Jacksonville.

It was the most extensive work for Newton since the first week of training camp,
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 20 Josh Donaldson Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Cheap before shoulder soreness limited his involvement. And late in practice, Newton uncorked a deep pass, which is something the Panthers have mostly held in check following his offseason shoulder surgery.

“The big key for us will be how he feels in the morning,Josh Donaldson Jersey just to make sure there is nothing sore or tight,” head coach Ron Rivera Kevin Pillar Jersey said. “But he looked really good.”

Soreness is one thing, but Newton also has to shake off the rust after missing a
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey  good portion of training camp and sitting out the first two preseason games.

Josh Donaldson Womens Jersey “He and I talked at the end of practice, and the one thing he told me is he just still feels Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey like his timing off and he’s a little slow with his decision making,” Rivera said. “It will be, with him, (about) the reps. As long as he’s getting quality reps and we’re not overusing him, I think he’s going to be fine. We’ll see how he is tomorrow and go from there.”

Three Questions 2017 Quarterbacks Kevin Pillar Jersey Blue Jays

Position preview series continues with a look at questions facing Cam Newton coming off shoulder surgery.

Cam Newton followed an all-time season in 2015 with a pedestrian one in 2016, though his touchdown passes (19) weren’t a career low and his interceptions (14) weren’t a career high. He did, Josh Donaldson Jersey, have the worst passer rating of his six-year career and rushed for a career-low 359 yards – all behind an injury-ravaged offensive line.


1. Can Newton get off to a fast start on the heels Russell Martin Jersey of a stalled spring?

This was a big offseason for the offense coming off a disappointing season, and its leader had to get up to speed for the next chapter from the sideline. Newton had shoulder surgery in March and didn’t throw any passes throughout offseason workouts, but Troy Tulowitzki Jersey he was active as a spectator on the practice field as well as in the meeting room. Newton’s arm and body will be fresh, and this is a guy who didn’t really get to practice as a rookie until training camp because of a league labor dispute and still shined.

2. Are the guys around him ready to help jumpstart things?

That’s not to say it will be easy for Newton to put his best foot forward out of the gates, but he doesn’t have to do it alone. A retooled offensive line should help his cause right away, and an injection of speedy, versatile playmakers acquired early in the draft (Christian McCaffrey, Curtis Samuel) should make his job easier. A talented and healthy defense should Jose Bautista Jersey things as well, making it possible that Newton and Co. start strong heading into a Week 4 trip to the reigning champion Patriots.

3. How motivated is Newton to bounce back?

No Kevin Pillar Jersey one should ever doubt Newton’s will to compete and win. The man missed just one game after a harrowing automobile accident in 2014 and played through his shoulder injury last year. He hates losing and as such surely can’t wait to work toward getting the Panthers back to their winning ways after their streak of three consecutive NFC South titles was stopped.
