Stephen Hauschka Jersey

  • The Chicago Bears have matched the Green Bay Packers’ offer sheet for cornerback Kyle Fuller and signed him to a four-year contract.

    The Bears announced Tuesday they are retaining Fuller.

    A person familiar with the situation said Friday that Fuller signed an offer sheet with the Packers. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because neither team had announced that move.

    Fuller had 22 passes defensed and two interceptions last season. He emerged as a key player after struggling in 2015 and sitting out 2016 because of a knee injury.

    General manager Ryan Pace says the Bears ”could not be happier to have Kyle under contract for four more years.”

    Chicago finished last in the NFC North at 5-11 last season.

     

    At least one player thinks President Donald Trump’s offer to listen to NFL players for advice on pardons wasn’t a sincere one.

    Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins told TMZ that he didn’t buy it.

    “I think Trump is more closed-minded and he thinks the reason that we’re kneeling is because of the flag Stephen Hauschka Jersey ,” Hopkins said, via the Houston Chronicle. “When that’s like not at all the reason we’re kneeling.”

    Hopkins was among the Texans players who took a knee during the anthem before the Oct. 29 game, after owner Bob McNair’s “inmates running the prison” line from a meeting with other NFL owners. Hopkins said he still expects some players to take a knee next year.

    “I kneeled last year and one of my best friends is a Purple Heart veteran and my uncle is a Purple Heart veteran and they understand that it’s not about the flag,” Hopkins said. “But, when a general person like that makes it look like Richard Sherman Jersey , ‘All right, they’re doing this because of the flag.’ Then of course his followers are going to think the same. But, that’s not the case at all, you know?”

    Of course, the reality is that Trump will continue to use the NFL as a punching bag Captain Munnerlyn Jersey , after NFL owners tried to appease him with a new anthem policy. Players who are on the field are now required to stand, though they have the option to remain in the locker room.
