Marcus Maye Jerseys Stitched
#1
FLORHAM PARK Marcus Maye Jerseys Stitched , N.J. (AP) — Quinnen Williams passed on paying for a big-name, high-priced personal trainer during his first NFL offseason.The New York Jets rookie defensive lineman simply pressed play on his laptop at home.“I just worked out on my own — I can YouTube everything,” Williams said with a big, braces-filled smile Friday. “I don’t really have to go pay a superstar super-performance dude. I can use YouTube and just do it. On the field, you can’t take a performance coach with you, so I used YouTube a lot and did a lot of stuff that we do here over and over.”Apparently, the video binging worked.The No. 3 overall draft pick arrived in terrific shape at the team’s facility Friday morning to sign his rookie contract, officially ending his one-practice holdout.“It was a huge relief, man, just to be back with my brothers,” Williams said. “Be back with the team, be back in New York and New Jersey. It’s just amazing.”Then, he went out and “crushed” his conditioning test, coach Adam Gase raved.“I’m just ready to perform,” Williams said. “I feel way better than I was in college; I feel way stronger, way faster and way more flexible.”The former Alabama star worked out at his alma mater and Georgia Tech during the offseason Youth ArDarius Stewart Jerseys , spending 18 hours a day between the gym, saunas, hot tubs, cold tubs and massage tables to get himself in perhaps the best shape of his life.With the help of the internet, of course.He dropped his playing weight of 305 pounds from last year with the Crimson Tide to about 295. Williams’ body fat is also down from 20% to 15% after tweaking his diet — with assistance from the Jets’ nutritionist — by eating more vegan plant-based proteins.“I did a lot of conditioning and ran track a lot,” Williams said. “I saw (Eagles wide receiver) DeSean Jackson running track all the time, so I got me some track cleats to start running track. It got me in great shape.”Now, Williams is eager to get on the field and start practicing.That will happen Saturday, the team’s first session in pads, after Gase and the Jets decided to not rush Williams into the mix after a hectic 24-hour stretch for the youngster. Williams agreed to terms Thursday on his four-year, $32.5 million deal that includes a $21.7 million signing bonus, flew to New Jersey later that night and put his pen to paper early Friday morning.“We just thought it was the right move, just pulling him out of practice and not put him in a bad situation,” Gase said.Surprisingly, there was only a bit of razzing by Williams’ teammates when he showed up at practice, unlike the welcome Sam Darnold received as he was slow-clapped onto the field last summer after he ended his three-practice holdout.“I just heard ArDarius Stewart Jerseys Stitched , ‘Big Money,’ a lot,” Williams said with a laugh. “All the guys here know I’m not a real big spender. They know I’m a kid, almost. I’m really a goofy, laid-back, cool person, so there really hasn’t been a lot said about it.”But once the whistle blew, Williams did all he could to control himself from running out on the field during the two-hour session.“I was just fidgeting on the sideline, like, ‘Man, I know this play. I know what to do on D-line,'” he said, smiling. “I was just really taking mental reps on the sideline.”That’s aspect of Williams’ game that has really impressed Gase and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. The defensive lineman’s ability to quickly pick up the playbook and apply it to the practice field has him in position already to be a major contributor.“His football intelligence is off the charts,” Gase said.In the Jets’ defense, Williams will be moved all around the line — at nose tackle, defensive tackle and defensive end.“It helps him get an extra step outside of his athletic ability Youth Darron Lee Jerseys ,” Gase said of Williams’ football I.Q. “You look at the guys that have a lot of success like Aaron Donald, he is smart and he’s a freak athletically. So, when you put those two things together, they make it tough to stop.”All that despite the 6-foot-6 Williams still developing after not being a starter in college until last season. He quickly became a force for the Crimson Tide as a nearly unblockable D-lineman with an intriguing combination of quickness, power and strong hands. He won the Outland Trophy as college football’s best interior lineman after getting eight sacks last season with 19½ tackles for loss.“He’s in the backfield a lot,” Gase said. “I mean, he’s a good player.”And, now, Williams wants to make his mark, someday in a starring role in his own highlight video.“I just can’t wait to compete,” the big rookie said, “and ball out this year with my brothers and win games.”NOTES: CB Brian Poole, activated from the non-football injury list Thursday, caused two turnovers in his first practice of camp. … RG Brian Winters returned after he missed Thursday’s practice to be with his wife, who gave birth to a boy. Sam Darnold showed he could recover from a careless mistake — a promising trait for any rookie quarterback.What the New York Jets displayed on defense and special teams may have been even more encouraging for Darnold and his teammates.Darnold threw an interception on the very first snap of his NFL career — and it was run back for a Detroit touchdown — but New York’s quarterback shouldn’t sweat that too much after the Jets stormed back and routed the Lions 48-17 on Monday night. Darnold threw for 198 yards and two touchdowns, and the Jets also scored on defense and special teams.“We’re going to play better every game Darron Lee Jerseys Stitched , that’s our goal,” wide receiver Quincy Enunwa said. “Obviously you can’t always make it happen, that’s going to be what we’re striving for. All three phases being successful, scoring on all three phases. When you can do that, you can be a pretty good team.”Darnold earned the starting job after the Jets drafted him third overall in this year’s draft. His performance alone was cause for excitement Monday, but on this night, New York seemed to have a pretty solid cast around him as well. The Jets intercepted Matthew Stafford four times in a dismal debut for new Lions coach Matt Patricia.“Give the Jets credit. They obviously are the ones that played well tonight,” Patricia said. “We have to do better, I have to coach better and we have to play better.”New York scored 31 unanswered points in the final 9:36 of the third quarter after the Lions had tied it at 17. Darron Lee returned an interception for a touchdown, and Andre Roberts scored on a 78-yard punt return 67 seconds later.What we learned from New York’s resounding win:REBOUNDDarnold’s start to this game was pretty much the worst-case scenario. On the first play from scrimmage, his ill-advised throw sailed toward the left sideline and was picked off by Quandre Diggs, who returned it 37 yards for a 7-0 lead. That was Darnold’s only major error, however. He not only showed he could play well in prime time on the road, he also showed he could handle adversity.The 21-year-old Darnold was the youngest quarterback to start a season opener since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. He was also the first quarterback to win his first start by 31 or more points since Tom Brady in 2001, per ESPN Stats & Info.STUCK IN NEUTRALThe Lions were unimpressive in the preseason, but it’s always tough to tell how much that really matters. This opener confirmed this team has issues. It was the most lopsided loss for Detroit in an opener since a 45-0 shellacking at Washington in 1991. (Of course Cheap Quinnen Williams Jersey , the Lions ended up making the NFC title game that season).Detroit had scored at least 25 points in seven straight season openers, an NFL record. That streak is now over.Perhaps most distressing, the Jets said they had a read on Stafford’s signals.“We were calling out their plays as he was getting up to the line,” Lee said.NO BALANCEDetroit did a lot to try to shore up the running game this offseason, drafting Kerryon Johnson and adding LeGarrette Blount. It was enough of an overhaul that Ameer Abdullah was inactive for the opener.The Lions ended up with 39 yards on 15 carries. Blount ran four times for minus-3 yards. Not a good sign.“I know it sounds crazy, but we’re a lot better football team than we showed,” tackle Taylor Decker said. “I think we all know that and we’re all secure and comfortable with that. We’ll get better moving forward.”X-FACTOR?Maybe it was just poor coverage by Detroit, but Roberts also had a 43-yard punt return in the first quarter in addition to his touchdown.EXPECTATIONSOne victory doesn’t make the Jets a Super Bowl team, but the lopsided nature of this one is hard to ignore, and now New York has winnable games the next two weeks against Miami and at Cleveland.Detroit is at San Francisco next weekend.
