The Browns added a number of quality players this offseason, but they’ve jettisoned a couple as well. Cornerback Jamar Taylor is one such player, and he could immediately walk into a starting role for the Arizona Cardinals opposite Patrick Peterson.discount nfl jerseys
Taylor was a starter each of the past two seasons in Cleveland, and in most instances, he performed well. Last season, he amassed 62 tackles, 10 passes defended and a forced fumble. Taylor knows how to make plays on the ball, and he isn’t afraid to get rough.
“He’s physical, and I love the way he tackles,” Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said, per Bob Baum of the Associated Press. “We take a lot of pride in that, of course I do, in making sure our cornerbacks tackle.”nfl discount jerseys
Taylor’s also inexpensive. He agreed to a pay cut and will carry a cap hit of $1.8 million this season. Considering the Cardinals gave up just a 2020 sixth-round pick to get him, he could prove to be one of the biggest steals—and most underrated additions—of the offseason.
Most of the buzz surrounding the Indianapolis Colts this offseason has involved the health and recovery of quarterback Andrew Luck’s throwing shoulder. The Colts have also attempted provide Luck support upon his return, which is of equal importance.
The first-round selection of former Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson was a much-needed move to help protect the quarterback. Two other draft picks, however, also appear poised to provide Luck with a boost—though neither was as heralded as Nelson.nfl jerseys discount
Indianapolis used a fourth-round pick on former NC State running back Nyheim Hines and a sixth-round pick on former Clemson wideout Deon Cain. Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star recently reported that both are turning heads in offseason workouts.
“He’s just hard to understand defensively, in my mind, how you’re going to play him. He kind of reminds me a little bit of a Dexter McCluster type,” Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni said, describing Hines’ ability to create mismatches, per Keefer.discount nfl jerseys china
Head coach Frank Reich has been impressed with Cain’s ability to be an impact receiver.
“I’ve seen playmaking ability; I’ve seen really good body control,” he said, per Keefer. “Good speed. Good route-runner. With a lot of young guys, you just need to fight for the consistency to do it every play. I really commend Deon.”
Cain and Hines may have exited draft weekend as afterthoughts, but both have the potential to be big pieces of the Colts offense this season.nfl jersey discount
