FRISCO Josh Oliver Jersey , Texas (AP) — paid Dallas Cowboys player in history for long. Doesn’t mean the club’s best defensive end can’t enjoy the distinction while it lasts.The 26-year-old Lawrence signed a five-year, $105 million contract, with $65 million guaranteed, on Tuesday. He then was asked repeatedly to try to reflect on what it means to have a $21 million-per-year average that tops retired quarterback Tony Romo, pass rushing predecessor and franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware and receiver Dez Bryant before him.“I have so many emotions going on right now,” Lawrence said while his parents, young son and fiancee watched in the room where coach Jason Garrett holds his daily news conferences during the season.“It’s hard for me to take it in. Going through the back surgeries and stuff, I thought my career was over. Before I even made a couple of sacks, I thought I would never see this day.”Shoulder surgery is next, scheduled for Wednesday and part of the reason a deal got done long before a July 15 deadline that was in place after the Cowboys put the franchise tag on Lawrence for the second straight year.Getting the procedure done now raises the question of whether the two-time Pro Bowler will be ready for the regular season — he declared that he would be — and waiting to do it until after he had a new contract gave Lawrence some leverage.Last year, Lawrence signed the $17.1 million franchise tag right away. This year http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/quincy-williams-ii-jersey-cheap , he wasn’t going to grab $20.5 million guaranteed anytime soon, determined to get the long-term deal he felt he deserved. By not signing, Lawrence could have skipped mandatory minicamp without getting fined.“We were getting to a point where we needed to make it happen,” executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones said of the surgery, joined by Garrett at the news conference while owner Jerry Jones made an opening speech over the phone from NFL labor meetings.“I think DeMarcus was aware of that too. I mean, he loves to play the game. Certainly, having that looming out there was probably important for both of us to really push and make the push we did there to get it done.”The Cowboys have several young stars with paydays coming, headlined by quarterback Dak Prescott. Stephen Jones wasn’t shy in suggesting that Prescott is likely to replace Lawrence whenever he signs.Prescott is in the final year of a rookie deal that pays the fourth-round pick $2 million. That’s more than three times Prescott’s salary from the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year’s second Pro Bowl season in 2018.“When you’re getting ready to do a quarterback who is a franchise quarterback and already has put some serious skins on the wall like Dak has, no, he’s probably not going to be there long,” Stephen Jones said. “But he can always say he held the mantle Ryquell Armstead Jersey , albeit it might be a short time.”Three years into his career, Lawrence wasn’t thinking about a big second contract. He had nine career sacks at that point, eight of them in his second season. The former Boise State player didn’t have a sack as a rookie in 2014, and just one two years later as he battled those back issues, along with other ailments.Lawrence also had to serve a four-game suspension for violating the ban on performance-enhancers to start the 2016 season. Finally healthy and free of that cloud, Lawrence tied for second in the NFL with 14½ sacks in 2017 and had another 10½ last season.“The adversity he had early in his career and how he came back from that, a number of different times,” Garrett said. “One of the great leaders on our defense … who does things the right way and certainly a cornerstone player who we want to be here for a long, long time.”Jerry Jones recalled the criticism he took when the Cowboys traded up 13 spots to the second pick of the second round of the 2014 draft “to take a player that we thought was the player left on the board that had the juice to get to the passer.”“A lot of people thought we paid too much to get him,” said Jones, who gave up his third-round pick that year. “Here we stand with a guy that’s about to be the highest-paid player in the history of the Dallas Cowboys. He’s earned it.”Lawrence will enjoy the highest-paid distinction while he can. SANTA CLARA http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/gardner-minshew-ii-jersey-cheap , Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers sure are getting a lot of attention for a team coming off a six-win season that hasn’t even sniffed the playoffs the past four years.That’s what a season-ending five-game winning streak and the presence of a potential franchise quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo will do.One group not buying into all the hype is in the San Francisco locker room.“There’s no one (here) who thinks we arrived,” said left tackle Joe Staley, the only player left from the Niners‘ last playoff team in 2013. “We have a ton of work to do. We were a 6-10 football team. We were happy with the way we finished last year, but that’s in the past.”San Francisco put together that sterling 5-0 finish after a dreadful start to the first season under coach Kyle Shanahan that featured nine straight losses to begin the schedule, including a record five straight by three points or fewer.That all began to change after the team acquired Garoppolo before the trade deadline from New England. After a few weeks to learn the offense, Garoppolo stepped in and showed why the Patriots had groomed him as Tom Brady’s successor.He completed 67.4 percent of his passes last season, averaging 8.8 yards per attempt with seven TDs, five interceptions and a 96.2 rating to improve to 7-0 in his career as a starter.Among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts last season, Garoppolo ranked first in yards per attempt, fourth in completion percentage. His 308.4 yards passing per game in his five starts also would have led the league had he played a full season.But more importantly, he changed the mindset of a whole franchise.“Jimmy is confident in himself Nick Bosa Jersey ,” Shanahan said. “I think everyone felt that right away. That’s why guys gravitate to guys. It doesn’t matter what people say or how they act. People can tell when people believe in themselves and when they don’t. But, it shows the most on the field. When you’re having success as a quarterback, as a receiver, as anybody, that confidence is only going to grow. When people start seeing you, the more plays you can put together the higher it gets.”Here are some other things to watch this season:SHERMAN’S HEALTH: One of the most high-profile moves San Francisco made in free agency was signing Richard Sherman after his release in Seattle. After years of tormenting the Niners, Sherman has flipped sides in the NFC West rivalry. But how effective he will be will depend heavily on his health. His 2017 season was cut short by surgery on his Achilles tendon. Sherman hopes to overcome that at age 30. He was slowed by a hamstring problem in camp, so it’s uncertain how much speed he’s lost from his days as the league’s top cover cornerbacks.REUBEN’S ROLE: Reuben Foster showed signs of being an elite inside linebacker as a rookie when he was on the field. The problem was he missed five full games with injuries and left several others for periods of time. Having Foster at middle linebacker is key and the Niners have tried to get him to use his hands more to limit the wear and tear on his body. But Foster already will miss the first two games because of a suspension following two offseason arrests, and San Francisco can’t afford to be without him much more.RUSH THE PASSER: San Francisco failed to generate much pass pressure last year, getting only 30 sacks. Elvis Dumervil was cut after leading the team with 6 ½, and no one else had more than three. Despite the lack of production Dwayne Haskins Jersey , DeForest Buckner is one of the league’s top defensive linemen. He generates consistent pressure and could get more opportunities outside to get one-on-one matchups that could lead to more sacks.DEEP THREAT: One of the most impressive 49ers last year was speedy WR Marquise Goodwin, who smashed his career highs with 56 catches for 962 yards in his first season with San Francisco. The former Olympic long jumper proved he can be more than a deep threat as he ranked in the top six in catches (29) and yards (384) in five games with Garoppolo.“He’s continued to get better in every facet of his game,” Shanahan said. “He probably hasn’t gotten faster, he’s always been fast. But his hands have gotten better, he’s gotten more consistent. He tracks the ball well. It’s not just catching the easy ones now, he’s starting to make some tough ones.”RUN THE ROCK: The Niners let Carlos Hyde leave in free agency and replaced him with a more versatile back in Jerick McKinnon. But McKinnon went down with a season-ending knee injury, leaving a big hole on the offense. Alfred Morris was signed midway through camp and could be the main back with little-used Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert the other options.
