Four Chiefs Make ESPN Custom MLB Orioles Jersey ’s “NFL Rank 2017”

Kansas City was one of four teams to have four-plus players listed in th Baltimore Orioles e top 50

ESPN released its annual “NFL Rank” list on Monday, ranking the top 100 players in the NFL for the 2017 season, and four members of the Kansas City Chiefs ranked inside the top 50.

Safety Eric Berry (No. 17), tight end Travis Kelce (No. 21), cornerback Marcus Peters (No. 28) and linebacker Ju boston red sox custom jersey stin Houston (No. 48) all made the cut for Kansas City. The Chiefs were one of just four teams to have four-plus players listed in the top 50, joining Seattle (6), Atlanta (4) and Dallas (4).

Berry was the top safety and the second overall defensive back in the rankings, while Kelce was the second-highe Custom Red Sox Jersey st ranked tight end. Peters was the third cornerback listed.

Here’s what the rankings had to say about each player:

No. 1 baltimore orioles custom jersey 7 – Eric Berry

To show the value of Berry’s big plays, more than half of his interception return yardage last season came in the fourth quarter, when the Chiefs really needed it. That doesn’t even count his fourth-period interception on Atlanta’s two-point try, which Berry returned for a game-winning score. But Berry’s value to the Chiefs goes well beyond big plays or even his steady every-down presence: He’s the team’s unquestioned locker room leader.

No. 21 – Trav http://www.ecustombaseballgears.com/ is Kelce

Kelce may be listed as a tight end, but it’s time to stop thinking of him as one. He caught only 19 of his 87 passes last season from a traditional TE alignment, compared with 66 when split out as a wide receiver. Kelce is 260 pounds but runs like a wideout, making him a difficult matchup for opposing defenses.

No. 28 – Marcus Peters

The Chiefs had six interceptions in 2014, the year before they drafted Peters. They’ve compiled 40 in the two seasons since, which ranks second in the NFL. Peters isn’t responsible for the entire uptick, of course, but he’s had 14 picks in his two NFL seasons and has been a catalyst in Kansas City’s defensive turnaround. Peters anticipates r Men’s Boston Red Sox Majestic Alternate Navy Flex Base Authentic Custom Jersey outes well and breaks on the ball like few cornerbacks. After he was targe Custom Orioles Jersey ted often as a rookie, opponents threw his way far fewer times last season.

No. 48 – Justin Houston

The last time Houston played a full season, he led the NFL with 22 sacks and finished a half-sack from the NFL single-season record. That was in 2014. An ACL injury shortened his 2015 and 2016 seasons. “Hopefully I return better than what I was in 2014,” Houston said. “My expectations are higher. I want to be more dominant than I’ve ever been. That’ Boston Red Sox s my goal. That’ Women’s Personalized Stitched Any Name Any Number Baltimore Orioles Home White Jersey s my plan and I’m going to work until I get there.” 

Dave  Montreal Canadiens 100 Classic Toub on Anthony Sherman: “He’s the Best Fullback I’ve Ever Coached”

A closer look at the guy who plays all four phases

Kansas City Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman is entering his fifth season with a lot of praise.

During h Brendan Gallagher Jersey Womens is four-year  Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty Authentic Home Red C Patch Hockey Jersey career in Kansas City, the “Saus Brendan Gallagher Jersey age,” as he has been nicknamed by head coach Andy Reid, has compiled 271 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns, while also playing a vital role on special teams.

Over the last four seasons, Sherman leads the Chiefs in special teams tackles with 40.

“He’s the best fullback I’ve ever coached as far as a special teams player/ fullback,” special teams coach Dave Toub said. “You know he is a four-phase guy (kick and pu Montreal Canadiens Ice Hockey Jersey nt return, kick and punt coverage).

“That is a rare thing in the NFL,” Toub added. “If Jonathan Drouin Jersey  you look at fullbacks across the league, you will see a guy playing one or two phases. Maybe kick return and maybe a little bit of kick off. He does it NHL 100 Classic Celebration  all. He plays on punt as well as punt return. His effort is great. He is a great leader and just to have him on the field it is important for all of the young guys.”

When speaking to the media Monday, it was said special teams and consistency are the reasons Sherman has been able to carve out a career.

“Yeah, you are talking about them like they are turning into dinosaurs,” Toub said. “There is just not a lot of them around anymore. He definitely has a niche.”

Last week after practice, Reid was asked about future coaches he could see amongst his guys besides Derrick Johnson.

And Sherman was one of them.

“I’m not going to hold him accountable for it, but Max Pacioretty Jersey  he has talked about potentially doing that,” Reid said.

Coach Sherman, anyone? He’s a team leader that plays multiple phases of the game. Sherman also helps fire the guys up NHL All Star , and occasionally loosens them up when needed.

Wearing overalls in a romper-like-fashion or rocking a mullet are just a few ways Sherman has lightened the mood over the years.

Five Things to Know About New Montreal Canadiens 100 Classic  Chiefs LB Reggie Ragland

Kansas City traded for a linebacker on Monday

The Kansas City Chiefs announced the acquisition of linebacker Reggie Ragland from the Buffalo Bills on Monday afternoon.

Here are five things to know about the newest Chief:

Ragland was a second-round pick in the 2016 Draft

Drafted by the Bills in the second round (No. 41 overall) out of the University of Alabama, Ragland was the third linebacker selected in the 2016 Draft. Buffalo traded up to select Ra Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 92 Jonathan Drouin Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap gland, trading the No. 49 and No. 117 overall picks to Chicago in order to select him.

He was ranked as the second-best linebacker in the draft according to NFL.com, and was named as a player to watch by Chiefs Reporter B.J. Kissel prior to the draft.

Here’s some highlights from Ragland’s time at Alabama:

Ragland missed all of last season with a torn ACL

While in training camp with the Bills, Ragland tore his ACL on Aug. 5 and was subsequently placed on Injured Reserve on Aug. 30, ending his season.  

Ragland was a two-time national champion and an SEC Defensive Player of the Year

A four-year player at the University of Alabama, Ragland was part of the 2012 and 2015 national championship teams.

As a senio Max Pacioretty Jersey r in 2015, Ragland led the team in tackles (97) and tackles-for-loss (6.5), earning SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors in addition to being named a consensus All-American.

Here’s more from NFL.com prior to the draft:

Ragland was the third Alab Brendan Gallagher Jersey Womens ama player to earn unanimous All-American notice, joining Cornelius Bennett a NHL All Star nd Derrick Thomas. Ragland could have left for the NFL last year, but decided to come back to win a championship, get his degree, and continue his work in the community.

Ragland was a semifinalist for the Bednarik, Butkus and Lombardi awards following the season.

Ragland was also recognized for his work off the field while in school

Ragland was a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, which honors student-athletes who make an impact on and off the field. The award is based in Overland Park, Kan.

Here’s more about his work in the community while in school:

Ragland chose to forgo the NFL Draft and returned for his senior season to complete his degree in consumer affairs. Looking to NHL 100 Classic Celebration  fulfill a promise he made to his mother that he would earn his degree while at the University of Alabama, Ragland is scheduled to graduate this December in three and a half years. Not only a leader on the field, he is a member of the Crimson Tide’s senior leadership council, setting an example for underclassmen on how a student-athlete should carry himself at the University, on and off the field.

Perhaps his biggest contribution while in Tuscaloosa has been his dedication to volunteering in the community each of the last four years. Ragland put together an impressive list of volunteeri Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty Authentic Home Red C Patch Hockey Jersey ng opportunities and has gone above and beyond what is asked of Alabama student-a Brendan Gallagher Jersey thletes during his time with the Tide. In all, he has totaled 50-plus hours of community service across double-digit  Montreal Canadiens Ice Hockey Jersey volunteer opportunities that include visits to hospitals, schools and churches.

Ragland was highly recruited out of high school

A native of Madison, Ala., Ragland was ranked as the top inside linebacker in the country and the No. 2 overall linebacker coming out of high school in 2012. He eventually committed to the University of Alabama.

Chiefs’ rookie linebacker and now teammate Ukeme Eligwe was the No. 3 overall linebacker in that class.

 

Chiefs OL Parker Ehinger Appreciates Fans’ Support Through Rehab Pro Montreal Canadiens 100 Classic cess

Ehinger missed most of last season with a knee injury

For Montreal Canadiens Ice Hockey Jersey  fans of the Kansas City Chiefs who sent their well-wishes to second-year offensive lineman Parker Ehinger over the past year —he saw your tweets, messages, and words of support.

Ehinger, who was drafted in fourth round (No. 105 overall) two years ago out of the University of Cincinnati, was lost for the season midway through the Chiefs’ Week 8 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He started four games at left guard before the injury.

“It’s been endless positive support,” Ehinger, who was just brought off the PUP (physically unable to perform) list and returned to practice for the Chiefs on Monday, told the media Tuesday afternoon. “I love Chiefs Kingdom. A lot of fans reached out to me whether it was around the time I got hurt, a couple months into it, or up until now.

“They’ve always been supportive of me, even since I first got drafted, but they showed their love and support, and that meant a lot to me.”

Ehinger recalled the injury, which came on a screen play.

After getting out in space to make a block, Ehinger got twisted up, went down, and immediately knew something was wrong.

“It was the most pain I’ve ever felt in my life,” he said.

Ehinger tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus—the “grand slam” as he called it.

It wasn’t a standard knee injury, and he almost immediately began focusing on the process—the future.

“At the time, I kept telling myself I’m young, I’d always come back from injuries before,” Ehinger explained of his mindset after the injury. “But this was my first true major injury. I knew was going to be a journey when it first happened. I knew it was going to be a lon Max Pacioretty Jersey g haul back, but I was ready for it and just embraced the process.”

The hardest part for Ehinger, who never had a major injury in his football career before this, was watching his teammates get af Brendan Gallagher Jersey Womens ter it together each Sunday.

“I’d never been one to be sitting on the sidelines watching games,” Ehinger said. “It was tough for me in the first place watching those games, and then to have the chance to go to playoffs and I couldn’t be out there, that was very tough. And I still had a long road ahead of me in the offseason when I was staying around here and a lot of guys were enjoying their family and friends—I had to be here.

“I was busting my butt trying to get back out there. I think I came out a lot mentality stronger and mentality tougher through this all.”

The initial diagnosis on the return Jonathan Drouin Jersey  was 10-12 months for Ehinger, who was back on the field Monday afternoon—two weeks shy of 10 months removed from the injury.

“I was always a little ahead of schedule through the whole rehab process,” Ehinger added. “I felt like my body healed very quickly through it all. Kudos to this training staff, Dr. Andrews—my surgeon down in Florida—they all did a great job and I had a great trainer Brendan Gallagher Jersey  here (with the Chiefs) in Aaron Borgman, who pushed me the whole time to help get me back.”

Besides Borgmann and head Chiefs’ athletic trainer Rick Burkholder, there was another guy Ehinger leaned on throughout this process in former Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman, Adam Kieft.

“He was a guy who went to my high school,  NHL All Star played at Central Michigan, and was drafted by the Bengals,” Ehinger explained. “[Kieft] actually had two major knee surgeries and his career was short. So, he was a guy I relied on a lot, and a guy I’ve known since I was a little kid. He kept me positive.”

Right now, Ehinger has a lot of reasons to be positive c NHL 100 Classic Celebration onsidering how far he’s come over the past year.

“I’m just trusting what t Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 92 Jonathan Drouin Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap he doctors tell me and the trainers and the staff and what my body is telling me,” Ehinger added. “I’m not writing [the sea Men’s Adidas Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty Authentic Home Red C Patch Hockey Jersey son] off. It’s hopefully going to be in the foreseeable future that I’m back out there.”

What We Learned From Tuesday’s Media A Josh Donaldson Blue Jays Jersey vailability

Matt Nagy, Bob Sutton and Dave Toub spoke to the media Tuesday

OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR MATT NAGY

Q: It seems like you guys have a number of receivers – mainly thinking about your basketball-playing tight ends – who should be really good threats in the redzone or the endzone. Is that more difficult than it looks on the surface?

NAGY: “I don’t think it’s more difficult. Having some size down there in the redzone certainly helps because things get tighter. You have the 12th defender with the back end line, so being able to be in that pocket where you have good vision and you’re able to see those guys, just like what happened with Demetrius [Harris], it certainly helps.”

Q: What does it mean to have Parker [Ehinger] back?

NAGY: “It’s good. He’s done a great job at rehabbing and trying to get back to where he needs to be, so anytime you can get quality players back to help you with the depth is huge.”

Q: What’s the assessment so far for you with Patrick from when you first saw him in minicamp to where he is now and what he did last week?

NAGY: “He’s growing and he’s learning a lot. The experience being out on the field full speed is a huge benefit for him. It’s one thing to come out your first week in rookie minicamp when you get here and try to learn this offense, but now to come out here in the preseason and try to see it against guys that are going after you full speed and you get some different coverages that you might not get in the preseason, but he’s doing a good job with it. He has a lot of work ahead of him y Josh Donaldson Jersey et. There’s some fundamental stuff that we need to work with, but so far we just want to keep improving each day.”

Q: How’s he been with the study and trying to learn that offense? He’s obviously done a good enough job for you, right?

NAGY: “He’s done well and what helps is having a guy like Alex [Smith] who knows this offense inside-out to be there to help him with it. He’s there for some things that Patrick might not see or understand when he’s watching tape. Alex is right there and between all four of those guys, the room is great and they all really just help each other out.”

Q: Can you talk about the difference in what Patrick Mahomes faces in a preseason game defensively versus a team that has studied you guys and is game planning and sees you guys and his tendencies?

NAGY: “There is a difference. There’s a big difference and that’s throughout the NFL. You know a lot of teams right now, they hold things back and they want to be able to see their young guys play fast, and we’ve talked about that. Whether it’s offensively with plays or defensively with blitzes and different schemes, it’s a whole different ballgame when you get out there game one and they’ve been able to scheme you a little bit and have some different looks that were un-scouted.”

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR BOB SUTTON

Q: Talk about how your team is playing. What about the starters and the Kevin Pillar Jersey  backups, how have they looked to you?

SUTTON: “I think when you look at the preseason, I know we talked here a couple weeks ago, preseason you’re looking for a lot of things. To me the most important thing you’re trying to develop out of a player’s standpoint are the skills and tools he’s going to need to perform at his position over the NFL season. So you’re still drilling down on those things, you’re trying to develop the traits and characteristics that you want from not only the individual player but from the unit as well. It gets a little more challenging because you’re playing a lot of different players and that type of thing. I thought overall they’ve stayed at it, they’ve worked hard. I think we’re getting a little bit better. We’ve still got two big weeks of camp left that we’ve got to do a great job. Like I say, you want to win the games – that’s always important when you’re in them – but you really want to make sure you’re doing these other things that are going to help you be succ Custom Blue Jays Jersey essful throughout the course of the year.”

Q: How are you feeling about this year?

SUTTON: “Yeah we’ve got a good football team. We’ve got some good football players. We’ve got a lot of guys that have worked really hard. We’ve got a lot of new players on the defensive unit. They’ve done a great job in coming in and merging themselves into what we’re trying to do and I appreciate that fact because that’s always hard. We had two or three guys come in since camp started and they’ve done a great job as well. I think overall we’ve done a good job. The players have worked hard, the coaches have done a good job in helping them get ready for each of these practices. But these are two big weeks of camp. You ‘break camp’ but we’re still in camp mode.”

Q: How has Kevin Pierre-Louis helped you out?

SUTTON: “I think he’s done a great job, I’ve said this before, he’s got really good quickness. He’s an attacking, physical type of player. He’s got some good athletic ability, he adds some speed to our defense. He’s one of the guys that I think of that has come in out of nowhere and kind of had to merge into this whole thing on the run and I think he’s done a really good job. We’re using him in a lot of different places and so far have been really happy with his performance on the defensive side.”

Q: How about Justin Houston’s health – h Toronto Blue Jays MLB Baseball Merchandise e’s made some comments about being 100 percent, how much different does he look to you?

SUTTON: “He’s unfortunately had some of those nicks and injuries that have kept him out. So it’s good to get him back healthy and a lot of it is exactly that – if he feels healthy, then that’s a huge step. He’s got that where he feels like ‘I’m back’ physically and that can be nothing but a real positive for us. We all know he’s a good football player and he’s getting back the mental part of it, before you react and go. Anytime you don’t get to play a lot, he was in and out a lot last year even when he came back, it tak Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey es a while to get that reaction. For a guy like him, he’s played so many games it still takes him a little time to get that reaction where it’s normal where you’re not that one click behind. So he Men’s Mitchell and Ness Vintage 1993 Joe Carter Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Throwback Jersey ’s done a good job. We’re excited he’s back and healthy.”

SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATOR DAVE TOUB

Q: Tyreek Hill has so much energy, is there anyone else that compares to him?

TOUB: “De’Anthony (Thomas). De’Anthony is probably even higher energy than Tyreek, believe it or not. I have said this before about him, he is pound-for-pound one of the toughest guys we’ve got and it holds true. He made a nice tackle in that game too, over the top. We had a return, they got a 39-yarder on us. That thing goes for a touchdown if #13 is not there. To come all t Joe Carter Jersey he way from the backside and make that play. He has a nose for the football. He told me before the season started ‘I am going to make all of the tackles on kickoff.’ You love guys like that.”

Q: Has Cairo Santos had a chance to kick this week?

TOUB: “We are still evaluating that. We do not want to rush it. You know we want to make sure we are smart with this thing because it is a long season. We are still in preseason so we do not want to rush him. We are going to work with the doctors and the trainers with that and watch how he kicks. We have a guy and he is doing a good job for us. We just do not want to rush it.”

Q: When do you typically get a feel for your unit? How long does it take you to know who to cut?

TOUB: “First preseason game. As soon as we have a live situation and we see guys running down the field and how they are going to react to live blocking and tackling, I could almost cut the team right then.”

Q: Then what is your feel for this year’s group?

TOUB: “Oh Toronto Blue Jays , I feel good. No matter how it works out, our core is back obviously, unless we cut them all. Our core is back and I feel pretty good. We are going to be all right.”

Q: How is Sam Ficken doing for you?

TOUB: “He is a gamer. He does a good job in the game. He missed an extra point and that was a high snap too, so (James) Winchester deserves some of the credit for that miss. Overall, he is not bad for a guy that was on the street. We brought seven guys in here and he was the best one. He is doing a good job. He is getting a great opportunity. He is getting a lot of exposure. He is getting a lot of kicks and he is working with (Dustin) Colquitt and Winchester. You know I think Colquitt is one of the best holders in the league. He’s got a guy who cleans a lot of stuff up for him.”

Q: How is Kevin Pierre-Louis?

TOUB: “He is doing great. Right now we have him as a four-phase starter. He is getting more and more defense every day so we may have to reevaluate that as we go forward, but right now I love having him on everything that we do.”

Q: Did you know you were getting that type of type when he came here in the trade?

TOUB: “We knew he was a fast guy. We knew he showed up on special teams. He had some injury issues there in Seattle so sometimes you didn’t see him all of the time on the field. I think right now, knock wood, he is staying healthy. Our guys do a real good job evaluating. Our trainers do a good job keeping tabs on the muscles and stuff like that. They do a good job with that.”

The Latest in Technology is W Atlanta Braves Custom Jersey atching Over the Chiefs Practice Fields

The Chiefs are using new practice cameras this season that don’t require a traditional manned lift

There’s countless things that go on behind the scenes for the Kansas City Chiefs that help position the team to win on the field. Every victory is a culmination of numerous people working together to prepare for the upcoming opponent.

A critical component of that weekly preparation is the work done by the Chiefs video operations team, which film practice so that the coaching staff can adequately evaluate and game plan.  

That process got a facelift this offseason, as the Chiefs moved on from the traditional manned scissor-lifts in favor of a new camera system that can be operated from the ground.

“They’re called mastRcam mobiles,” said Pat Brazil, the Chiefs’ Director of Video Operations. “Basically, they’re similar to a boat trailer with a moulded canopy and Bimini on top, with a 55-foot tall telescoping mast that’s rated for 50 miles per hour. They also have electronic leveling jacks to keep it completely level and firm to the ground. The operator sits at the bottom of it with a pan zoom tilt control, a arizona diamondbacks custom jersey nd just shoots practice from there.”

The new system’s primary advantage is safety, as it doesn’t require an individual to actually ascend in the air with the camera.

“We used to have three 45-foot platform scissor-lifts and we would just load our camera gear in there and go up,” Brazil said. “It takes a while to get down if lightning hits or there’s wind, so this is definitely much safer.”

The increased safety of the staff made the decision to move forward with the new technology an easy one for Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt.

“We did our research to make sure that the quality of the video was as good as the old platforms with the handheld cameras and ultimately made the decision that it was a great addition,” Hunt said. “It adds to the safety of our video crew, and that was really what it was about, the safety of those guys.”

In the past, the unpredictability of the wind could create problems for the traditional platforms and sometimes force practice indoors.

“We were worried for when it gets a little bit windy,” Head Coach Andy Reid said. “As a head coach, I’m responsible for those guys when they go up in those towers, so when it was too windy we just went inside because those things would sway and you could have a problem. This allows us to go outside and practice in the wind, stay off the turf and get a lot of work done.”

For context, the traditional lifts were only rated for 20 mile per hour winds.

“Coach Reid would always Men’s Personalized Arizona Diamondbacks Home White Authentic Baseball Jersey Cheap  be turning around and asking if we were OK,” Brazil said. “What these do is they eliminate the safety factor from it. Everybody is going to be safe and we can go outside. We’ve already been outside in 30-40 mile per hour wind gusts with these, which we never would be in with lif Atlanta Braves ts.”

The Chiefs currently have three of the units, which are produced by a company called 8K Solutions, in what’s considered the latest in the industry. 

“Pat Brazil came to us and said this is the next stage in technology and this is going to make us better, and in addition it’s going to make us safer,” President Mark Donovan said. “You’re dealing with employees and you’re dealing with trying to pro Custom Braves Jersey vide a safe environment, so you put that on top. Te Youth Authentic Atlanta Braves Personalized Alternate Red Baseball Jersey chnology wise, it’s supposed to be a little bit better for the coaches, so it made it an easy decision.”

Despite the significant change in how they went about their business, the video operators caught on to the new procedure fairly quickly.

“When we first got them (the staff) was messing around with them during OTAs to get a feel for the picture and clarity with the sun and the glare and all that,” Reid said. “Now they’ve got it down. They’ve done a nice job.”

Brazil echoed Reid’s assessment as the cameras moved from training camp at Missouri Western to the practice fields at the team facility. 

“They’ve been incredible,” Brazil said. “We used them all offseason and up at training camp and they’ve been great. We use them everywhere.”

The cameras also provide a level of flexibility for Brazil and his staff that didn’t exist with the traditional lifts.

“You can go film ground stuff and then go right back to your (tower),” Brazil said. “Before, you’d be stuck up there and couldn’t shoot anything on the ground because it took too long to get up and down. It opens things up more for us to get more things.”

Brazil is grateful  Custom Diamondbacks Jersey that the decision makers in the organization saw the importance of obtaining the new cameras.

“We’re blessed in this organization to have ownership that cares about the safety of their employees, while also wanting to stay on the cutting edge of technology because it’s basically a marriage of these two things,” Brazil said. “These things are really neat and work really well.”

The cameras are seeing plenty of action this week as the Chiefs prepare to travel to Seattle and take on the Seahawks on Aug. 25. The game will be nationally televised on CBS at 7:00 p.m. CT.

Charcandrick West Ranks Among “Most El Atlanta Braves Custom Jersey usive” RBs of Preseason

West ran for 113 yards in Saturday’s victory over Cincinnati

Zach Fulto Customized Women’s NFL Jersey n: “Whatever They Need Me to Do, I’ll Do It”

A closer look at offensive lineman Zach Fulton

Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Zach Fulton is one of the three offensive lineman drafted in 2014 to play in every game.

And then when it comes to having started at all three interior positions on the O-Line? Yup, he’s the only one.

Add in that he’s been practicing at both left and right tackle the past couple weeks and he’s hit every spot on the line.

Fulton is joined by the Dallas Cowboys’ Zack Martin (Round 1, Pick 16), and the Cincinnati Bengals’ Russell Bodine (Round 4, Pick 111), as the only offensive  custom womens vikings jersey linemen selected in 2014 to play in every game.

Through his first  Pittsburgh Steelers NFL Jersey three seasons, Fulton has played in all 48 regular-season games with 34 starts for the Chiefs, playing a variety of different positions.

“It means a lot, and it means I showed my versatility,” Fulton said. “I feel like I’m always needed at some point and that they use me just whenever they can.”

Transitioning to multiple positions obviously call Custom Womens Patriots Jersey s for adaptability, and for Fulton there are two things that make it easier.

“I mean really it just boils down to knowing the playbook. Once you do that, everything will just fall into plac custom vikings jersey e,” Fulton said. “And I’ve been fortunate to play all these positions ever since I started playing football, so it’s not really that new to me. It makes the transition to those positions a little bit easier since I’ve had experience playing all of them.”

And thanks to offensive line coach Andy Heck, Fulton wasn’t going at it alone.

“He’s [Heck] just h Custom Womens Eagles Jersey elped me ever since I got here. Helped me with the playbook, learning my plays and break down things together so I can better understand them,” Fulton said.

Being able to swing to wherever he is needed, just adds more value to Fulton’s role.

“Position flexibility is huge in this deal. Typically we go to game day with seven guys, so do the math,” assistant head coach Brad Childress said. “Two guys go down, a Philadelphia Eagles  guy is going to have to come in and play tackle, he’s going to need to play center, he’s got to be able to play guard.

“You’re trying to find 10, but if you can find seven with a couple guys that can swing for you, you’re going to be in good shape.

“He’s always embraced whereve Women’s Nike Custom Made Minnesota Vikings Elite Purple Team Color NFL Jersey Cheap r we put him. It’s not hey I’m a center, I’m a guard. He looks to be valuable to us, he stepped in over the last three years and done a nice job for himself and us.”

Over the offseason and through preseason, the offensive line credits their success to continuity time and time again, despite Fulton changing up where he is along the line.

“I’m in there a lot and we practice,” Fulton said. “We also have a pretty good chemistry off the field as well, so I think that carries over to on the field, which helps out a lot.”

“Whatever they need me to do, I’ll do it. Simple as that.”
