Raiders sign Jack Del Rio to new 4-year contract

After leading the Raiders to a 12-4 season and their first playoff appearance since the 2002 season, head coach Jack Del Rio has been rewarded with a new four-year contract, the team announced Friday.

With the Patriots’ comeback win over the Falcons in Super Bowl 51, Zoo Atlanta lost a bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, R.I., and had to name one of its newest baby animals after Tom Brady.

Zoo Atlanta held up its end of the deal and named its newest Madagascar hissing cockroach after the Super Bowl MVP.

Well … the New England Patriots won #SuperBowlLI, so that means we lost our bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village. Before the game, our two zoos decided the losing side would name one of their baby animals after the winning team’s star quarterback, and figuring the losing side would be pretty bitter about it, we came to the agreement that baby animal … would be a Madagascar hissing cockroach. So without further ado – Meet our newly-named Program Animal family!

Falcons fans will certainly agree it’s a much more fitting choice than Zoo Atlanta’s adorable new baby gorilla or twin baby pandas.

You could argue Newton’s Super Bowl performance was as much a result of Denver’s pass rush as it was Newton himself. The 2015 NFL MVP turned in a season-low completion percentage (43.9) and passer rating (54.6), and overthrew receivers 10 times (a Super Bowl record). He looked stunned by the Broncos defense, which sacked him a season-high six times (two resulting in Cheap Jerseys Team fumbles) and allowed him to convert only four of 15 third-down attempts.

Still, Carolina had an opportunity to win, down 16-10 with four minutes left in the fourth quarter. But Newton’s second fumble at his own 25-yard line — one he chose not to jump on — sealed Cheap Jerseys Sale the game. The Broncos recovered and scored, winning 24-10.

How did Cunningham become Vanderbilt’s best defensive prospect in decades?

It didn’t take long for the Pinson, Ala., native to become a force. Cunningham was starting by the end of his first season on the field, and he was named first-team All-SEC as a sophomore. By the time he declared for the draft, he’d left his mark as one of the most versatile and clutch linebackers in the country.

Indianapolis Colts: An upgrade at safety had to be a priority for the Colts with so little at the position, but it sure looked like the team wouldn’t have a chance at landing Jamal Adams or Malik Hooker before a significant drop-off at the position.

Instead, Hooker fell right into their laps, giving a rangy ball hawk to a defense that was near the bottom of the league in every major category, including turnovers.

New Orleans Saints: The Saints were oh-so-close to getting Reuben Foster at No. 32, but instead had to settle for the best player on the board: Ryan Ramczyk. But getting the road grader came at a great value, as did Marshon Lattimore at No. 11.

Getting the top cornerback off the board without moving into the top 10 was a big win, and even if Ramczyk doesn’t directly address a big need, the Saints got a pair of good investments to build around.

Since I don’t have access to all-22 film for college games, I use the next best thing for my NFL draft profiles and go to draftbreakdown.com, where they have the TV copy of a bunch of Cheap Jerseys Sale top prospects already cut up and ready to go.

For the purposes of this breakdown, I watched UCLA edge rusher Takkarist McKinley against Stanford, Arizona State, Utah, and Cal. Those represented the fourth, sixth, eighth, ninth, and MLB Jerseys China 12th games on UCLA’s schedule last season.
