Luke Kuechly Jersey
The team announced his addition Friday Luke Kuechly Jersey , and Yurachek is likely to enter training camp as a backup on the depth chart.
Keith Smith is the projected starting fullback for coach Jon Gruden's team. Smith, who joins fullback Jamize Olawale on the roster and is a converted linebacker, played only sparingly on offense with the Cowboys, but was an important part of the special teams under coordinator Rich Bisaccia, who now holds the same job with the Raiders.
Last month, Yurachek signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall Ian Thomas Color Rush Jersey , but was released last week.
Also Friday, Oakland waived fullback Henry Poggi. He had signed in May.
The Jets have several running backs with names that hard-core football fans instantly will recognize: Isaiah Crowell, Bilal Powell, Thomas Rawls. The team’s running backs coach thinks another running back on the depth chart may become a household name.
Stump Mitchell believes Elijah McGuire could perform like one specific Hall of Famer.
“He has the skill set to be a LaDainian Tomlinson, if he was given that opportunity,鈥?Mitchell said recently Youth Brandon Carlo Jersey , via the New York Post. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 not what presents itself to him at this point in time. The skill set, he can do it all. He can catch, he can run as a running back, and he can run routes as a receiver. He just happens to be here, and I鈥檓 glad we got him.鈥?/p>
And Mitchell knows a thing or two about spotting running back talent before everyone else does.
鈥淚 told David Johnson the same thing,” Mitchell said.
McGuire Marcedes Lewis Jersey , a sixth-round pick in 2017, played college football at Louisiana-Lafayette. He had three 1,000-yard rushing seasons there, adding a high of 468 receiving yards in 2014. For the Jets, McGuire had 315 rushing yards as a rookie, with an average of 3.6 yards.
The guy who ultimately determines whether and to what extent McGuire will receive enough opportunities to thrive downplayed the comparison to L.T. Tyquan Lewis Jersey , with a very simple but important message.
“[H]e doesn鈥檛 have to live up to being LaDainian,” coach Todd Bowles said. “He has to live up to being Eli.鈥?/p>
To do that, he’ll have to first successfully compete with the likes of Crowell, Powell, and Rawls.
