Marcus Epps Jersey nfl draft
Vikings kicker Dan Bailey’s former boss speaks on why Bailey was let go In the wake of the news that former Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey is now signing with the Minnesota Vikings Marcus Epps Jersey nfl draft , Dallas Cowboys owner, coach, and PR guy Jerry Jones spoke today about why he let the second most accurate kicker in the league go.KFAN said that Jones spoke on his radio show (yes, he has his own radio show) about why Brett Maher was the better fit for the Cowboys and the real reason — which is money.“Well I think we got real comfortable with how [Brett] Maher was kicking, what kind of offseason he had,” Jones said. “But we, as you well know, felt that we could really get the same strategy, same impact that a kicker like Bailey gives us, we felt we could get that from another guy who fit our cap, fit our team better”Jones went on to say that, “It’s what the other boy did. As much as Maher did as much as anything. He was very consistent, and if you had been at practice you could have probably seen, just in general Youth Marcus Epps Jersey , that we felt like the other player could perform as well and under the circumstances, that’s how you make your decisions.”But back to the “fit our cap, fit our team better.” Bailey’s contract was $22.5 million and that would give him $3.4 million for the next three seasons. And let’s be honest, Jones isn’t trying to pay Bailey that much especially when he is only paying Maher $480,000 for this season. Bailey’s accuracy is not the issue. His last season with the Cowboys he was “75% of his attempts and went 26/28 on extra points.” and prior to that he has had 88% accuracy for field goals and 99% accuracy on extra points.Welcome, Bailey! We will take your minimum 75% accuracy any day of the week. EAGAN, Minn. — Being a first-round draft pick, Laquon Treadwell has received several opportunities to secure a role in the Minnesota Vikings’ offense.His next chance might come with a new team.More Vikings coveragePreview: Cook, Vikings look to keep rolling vs. PackersTop Tweets: Vikings prepare for Packers with TMNT hype videoBarr, seasoned Vikings defense off to strong startNew offense, same Rodgers: Vikings prep for LaFleur’s PackersVikings re-sign center Jones, waive rookie TE DillonMinnesota is still left searching for a reliable option for the third receiver spot behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.“They’re hard to separate right now,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said of the backup receivers. “When we talk about it in the personnel meetings, it’s things like that. One guy has a good day Womens Marcus Epps Jersey , then he has a bad day. The consistency of what they’re trying to do is really hard to get a handle on. That’s why I say these special teams, they need to get their rear ends going on that.”Treadwell’s spot in the competition has seemed more afterthought than expectation this year. He is behind second-year, undrafted Chad Beebe on the depth chart and his spot on the roster became even more unsettled after Zimmer’s comments following Sunday’s second preseason game. Treadwell caught all four of his targets for 47 yards.“We’re trying to get Treadwell the ball a little bit more in the second half,” Zimmer said after the game. “Try to showcase him a little bit, I guess. He made some nice plays.”The nice plays have been few and far between in three seasons for Treadwell. He has 56 NFL catches for 517 yards and one touchdown, while being plagued by drops.It was no surprise this spring when Minnesota declined the fifth-year option on Treadwell’s contract.“I would love to be here,” Treadwell said this week. “I wouldn’t want to be nowhere else.”Hoping to stay, Treadwell said he’s changed his outlook and is only focused on “winning.”“That’s my mindset and it keeps things simple,” Treadwell said. “I don’t have to read the media. I don’t have to pay attention to depth charts, none of that. They call my name to go in, if I win, everything else will take care of itself.”Beebe, who’s also been holding for field goals at times, appears to have a job. He had four catches for the Vikings last season.Former Canadian Football League standout Brandon Zylstra Ameer Abdullah Jersey , who had one catch in the regular season last year, has recovered from an offseason injury and had five catches for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s game.“I think the explosiveness is starting to come back a little bit for him now,” Zimmer said. “I thought he did well (Sunday).”Former Denver Broncos receiver Jordan Taylor has been in the mix this summer. Minnesota drafted two receivers in the seventh round of this year’s draft, Olabisi Johnson and Dillon Mitchell, and also brought back speedy Jeff Badet after a year on the practice squad.Special teams work will play a deciding role, and Zimmer also mentioned the eventual backups could come from another NFL roster.Meanwhile, Treadwell doesn’t mind being showcased for a chance to make any NFL roster.“I hope I’ll just get showcased more.” Treadwell said. “That’s what you want in this league, just to be able to go out and show what you can do. The more they show me, the more I’ll do. The opportunities I get, try to make the most of my opportunities and let the rest take care of itself.”
