Jordan Mills Jerseys 2019

ORCHARD PARK Jordan Mills Jerseys 2019 , N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have begun addressing their offensive line needs by signing Spencer Long to a three-year contract.The addition made on Tuesday comes a week after the New York Jets cut Long to free up nearly $6.5 million from next season’s salary cap.The 28-year-old Long has 44 starts in 53 career games over five seasons. He spent his first four seasons in Washington, which selected him in the third round of the 2014 draft out of Nebraska.Long has versatility in having played both center and left guard. Both are positions of need for the Bills, who had difficulty replacing the offseason losses of starting center Eric Wood and left guard Richie Incognito.Injuries to Long’s right hand White Lorenzo Alexander Jerseys , which he uses to snap with, led to him struggling at center with the Jets. He eventually moved to left guard after James Carpenter sustained a season-ending knee injury.The Bills also re-signed cornerback Lafayette Pitts to a one-year contract. Pitts was mostly used on special teams during his first full season in Buffalo last year. Bills head coach Sean McDermott slammed Jets defensive end Henry Anderson for hitting Bills kicker Steven Hauschka during a blocked field goal return in last Sunday’s game and said there’s “no place in football” for a play that the Bills feel should have resulted in a penalty.Anderson addressed the play during an appearance on former Colts punter Pat McAfee’s podcast and called it a “totally legal and fair play.” Anderson said he hit Hauschka from the side and the kicker “would have fallen forward and on his face” if the hit had come from behind. Anderson also noted that he’s been coached to avoid kickers if they are avoiding the play, but that Hauschka started “angling toward the ball carrier” before the hit.“He almost slide-tackled one of our kick returners earlier in the game Lorenzo Alexander Jerseys 2019 ,” Anderson said, via the . “If I don鈥檛 make a block there and he ends up somehow making that tackle then I鈥檓 going to get chewed out by [special teams coach] Brant Boyer. I figured that I would rather hit the kicker legally and within the rulebook then not hit him at all and potentially get chewed out by our special teams coach. I didn鈥檛 hit him helmet to helmet, I didn鈥檛 lower my head and spear him White Ramon Humber Jerseys , I didn鈥檛 launch my body at him. I put my shoulder into him and extended my arms into him.”Anderson said he understands frustration from the Bills’ side, but that the difference in weight between the players means he could have hit Hauschka much harder if his goal was to cause injury.The segment with McAfee was a mock courtroom proceeding with McAfee presiding. He concluded that the kicker has to “keep his head on a swivel” and that Anderson’s play was not the violation that the Bills believe it was.
