Warning to opponents of the Carolina Panthers: Quarterback Cam Newton is in the holiday spirit.
Newton loves the festive mood that Al Davis Authentic Jersey begins at Thanksgiving and runs through the end of the year. Even though he’s a pescetarian, he loves the anticipation of what he’s going to eat over the holidays.
It starts with Yams — heavy with marshmallows.
That makes him smile.
The reigning NFL MVP apparently loves this time of the year Aldon Smith Authentic Jersey on the field, as well. He’s loves eating up opponents in the same way he enjoys gobbling up foods.
Recent history says those deals won’t pan out for the teams. Look at the largest running back contracts handed out last season: Toby Gerhart (three years, $10.5 million), Donald Brown (three years, $10.5 million), Rashad Jennings (four years, $10 million), Chris Johnson (two years, $8 million) and Maurice Jones-Drew (three years, $7.5 million).
Besides Murray, C.J. Spiller and Justin Forsett are still available, and both can probably expect deals on par with last year’s top running back contracts.
Prices for running backs aren’t what they used to be. However, even with a bumper crop of backs available in this year’s draft, teams are still willing to spend big on the position, and they’re willing to pay a premium based on the name.
Roethlisberger is the only quarterback this season to have a game with three touchdown passes on throws of that length. He has two of them. He leads the NFL with 25 completions and 11 touchdowns on 20-plus-yard throws.
Brown has 10 games with multiple touchdown receptions in the past three seasons, the most in the NFL. Only two other players have more than five in that span: Odell Becham Jr. with eight and Antonio Gates with six.
