Authentic Womens Taven Bryan JerseyReport
Please briefly explain why you feel this question should be reported .
“I’m a deep thinker and I’m aware that life is going to hit you sometimes,” Greene said after minicamp Wednesday. “It’s hitting me this way, and it’s my job. You’ve got to be able to bounce back and be strong and show that you can overcome adversity. It builds character and makes you a better person.”
He’s counting on it making him a better player, too.
Just being healthy is a good start.
Greene missed seven games as a rookie in 2015 because of a broken thumb. He missed eight more the following year because of an Achilles injury. He sat out all of last season with an ailing back.
Even with the injuries mounting, his confidence never wavered.
So it didn’t bother him when the Jaguars signed Donte Moncrief to a one-year, $9.6 million deal in free agency or when they selected DJ Chark in the second round of the NFL draft.
“I wasn’t thinking, ‘Oh, this is the end,’ or getting agitated with what was going on,” Greene said. “You’ve got to make plays. At the end of the day http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-fred-warner-jersey , it’s a job, and if you don’t make plays, you’re not going to make the team. That’s imperative.
“You can’t have anxiety. You just got to relax, have fun and make plays.”
Greene would have been considered a long shot to make Jacksonville’s roster just a few weeks ago. But the former Florida State standout, a fifth-round draft pick in 2015, has made his share of plays during organized team activities.
He’s been so impressive that he looks like a strong option to be part of a rotation that includes Marqise Lee, Moncrief, Keelan Cole and Chark.
“A lot of times when you are injured, you do not have that ability to showcase what you can do,” coach Doug Marrone said. “I think he went through that last year and right now he is healthy John Kelly Jersey , performing well and looking a lot like the player that I first saw when he came here, making plays and doing things.
“I think that if he keeps continuing the way he does and continues to play this way during training camp and the preseason, he will be heavily involved in the mix of making this team.”
Greene has 24 receptions for 125 yards and two touchdowns. He’s been more dynamic on special teams, returning 39 punts for 432 yards and a score. He averaged 16.7 yards a punt return as a rookie.
But injuries have been his more prominent story line.
“He is definitely versatile,” offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. “He is a smooth wide receiver that has a lot of good quick shake and control of his body. He is a guy that we are excited to see as the pads come on and as training camp goes. We just want to keep seeing him. He is doing everything he can to put himself in position to get out on the field.”
And maybe watch less and play more.
“All I can ask for is a chance,” Greene said. “And the organization is giving me that. It feels great to be out there and competing. I’m having fun, and I can live with the results.”
A year removed from musing about retirement, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger plans to keep going. Which means that he could indeed be going beyond the duration of his current contract, which expires after the 2019 season.
Roethlisberger says he’s not thinking about that.
“I have two years on my contract. I’m not going to be one to sit here and worry about my contract,” Roethlisberger said Sunday at a football camp in Pittsburgh Youth Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys , via ESPN.com. “That’s not my job. My job is to play football. I’ll let my representation, the Steelers worry about all that stuff. To me, it’s all about going out and playing now. I think there are a lot more, maybe a lot more important people who need to get their deals done now. For me to do it two years out, if it doesn’t make sense for the team, I’m not going to sit here and worry about it.”
That could be viewed as a not-so-subtle slap at Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who also has two years left on his contract, who makes only $150,000 more per year on average that Roethlisberger, who has fewer Super Bowl wins that Roethlisberger Albert Wilson Jersey Dolphins , and who seems to be very motivated to get a new contract.
“I care about record-breaking Super Bowl wins and things like that — that’s more important to me,” Roethlisberger said.
“It’s important, too, to understand as quarterback of this team, sometimes you almost have to leave a little bit of money behind for other guys,” Roethlisberger added. “That’s not my job, that’s not my thing to worry about. That’s why I have agents.”
Still, with the top of the market at $30 million per year, Roethlisberger has every right to feel underpaid. Even if he’s not saying or doing anything to suggest that he’d like to have his contract adjusted.
