|kle surgery in 2014 had similar implications on the spring that year Customized Seattle Seahawks Jerseys , and Ron Rivera and his staff used the opportunity to give Newton a higher level of ownership over the offense. He ran meetings. He was given charge of installing the offense. And he helped lead the receivers and tight ends through study. Rivera told me that June, 鈥淥ver the last 10 weeks, we鈥檙e seeing Cam maturing, and doing things in other ways to contribute and improve. 鈥?You see stuff now you didn鈥檛 see before.鈥?Nineteen months later, he was playing in the Super Bowl. So can Newton turned this negative into a similar positive? As I understand it, the 2014 offseason template will be used to some degree for Newton this year. The difference is that this time around, Newton will be able to do some of the physical technique work he鈥檇 normally do (just without throwing), in addition to the classroom stuff. If there鈥檚 a lesson to be taken here with Newton banged up again, it might be to just continue to evolve as a quarterback. If there鈥檚 an issue with Newton, it鈥檚 not so much that he runs. It鈥檚 more in his tendency to hold the ball, and keep looking for the big downfield shot Cheap Dallas Cowboys Hoodie , giving rushers a better chance to get hits on him, which is similar to what Ben Roethlisberger has had to work to reform as he鈥檚 gotten older in Pittsburgh.
As for last year鈥檚 dip in production, as the Panthers see it, losing Michael Oher as a left tackle, and Ryan Kalil as a center and protection-caller affected Newton in how he was hit and how he trusted everything around him. So being able to shore up the line issues will be a point of emphasis (adding Matt Kalil should help) for the Panthers. If they can do that, and Newton can learn to check the ball down a little more often, the hope is the past seven months can just be a blip for No. 1.
4. Would full-time referees actually help? On paper, the idea of going to full-time officials in an effort to improve the level of their performance sure does sound good. In practice, would it really change anything? In scanning the officiating community this week, there was a real feeling that the NFL is taking this stance in the name of public relations, without really considering whether or not it鈥檇 make a difference.
NFLRA executive director Scott Green wouldn鈥檛 go that far Cheap Cleveland Browns Hoodie , but he does have serious questions about how practical the idea is. 鈥淥ur position is that we are full-time. We can show that we put in over 40 hours a week during the season,鈥?Green said on Monday. 鈥淚 would start with the fact that officials are full-time in basketball and baseball, and everyone still complains about the officiating in baseball and basketball. You鈥檙e still going to have complaints about officiating. So what will they gain by doing that? That鈥檚 what we鈥檙e trying to figure out. 鈥?They鈥檝e never said specifically what they want us to do. During the season, I鈥檓 just telling you, there鈥檚 not much more we can do. In the offseason, send us to more OTAs? Potentially, with technology, maybe there鈥檚 more that can be done.鈥?/p>
Green mentioned virtual reality as a method for additional training, since OTAs and minicamps are hardly full speed and don鈥檛 do a whole lot for officials. 鈥淚t鈥檚 all unproven,鈥?he said. 鈥淵ou can watch so much video, but (former officiating czar Mike) Pereira said it well鈥攚atching six hours of video isn鈥檛 going to make a side judge a better side judge.鈥?So there鈥檚 that. Then Authentic Customized Chiefs Jerseys , there鈥檚 the pay. If officials were to go full-time in football, Green suggested that the pay structure for MLB鈥檚 officials would be the template, and that going there would represent a big raise over what NFL officials make now. So is the league willing to go there? And if they aren鈥檛, will a sizable number of the current officials quit? How many officials would be willing leave their day jobs to referee, regardless of pay? Will the pool of candidates be affected?
Making officials go full-time sounds great in a vacuum. And this week鈥檚 news didn鈥檛 blind side them. But there鈥檚 plenty to be worked through, and the two sides haven鈥檛 done much at all yet in the way of getting that work going.

When Mike Glennon signed in Chicago, his deal was touted as a three-year, $45 million contract.
Technically, it is. If you look closer? You see a one-year, $16 million deal with just $2.5 million fully guaranteed beyond that鈥攁nd $2.5 million that likely would be recouped by the team if he鈥檚 cut, because of contractual offsets鈥攚ith team options for 2018 at $15 million and 2019 at $14 million.
Want to keep looking? That five-year Authentic Customized Falcons Jerseys , $25 million deal signed by DT Stacy McGee is Washington looks more like a one-year, $6.5 million contract. The reported five-year, $34 million deal for new Rams WR Robert Woods looks more like a one-year, $7 million deal. And so on.
So here鈥檚 this week鈥檚 offseason lesson:聽In today鈥檚 NFL, almost every contract is a one-year deal or a one-year deal with team options dressed up like something else.
From the start of tampering period through Wednesday, there were 206 player contracts filed with the NFLPA. Only 24* of those 鈥?or 11.7 percent 鈥?had full guarantees of $3 million or more beyond 2017. In many cases involving the other 182 deals, the 鈥済uarantee鈥?number reported was little more than injury insurance. And injury guarantees aren鈥檛 easily triggered.
So what鈥檚 the problem? As many player agents see it, the league鈥檚 archaic funding rule is a major culprit. It allows teams to use cashflow as a crutch to set policy barring or limiting full guarantees in contracts.
The rule is simple. Teams have to fund every fully guaranteed dollar in every contract with the league, which puts the cash in escrow, until that money is paid out. An example: T.
