As a rookie last summer, third-round Detroit Lions draft pick Kenny Golladay put on a show that included a pair of touchdown catches in his first preseason game and then two more in his first regular-season affair.
The 6’4″ Northern Illinois product faded down soon after that and lost a good chunk of his 2017 campaign to a hamstring injury, but it appears he’s back in form with his second training camp around the corner. cheap nfl nike jerseys china
Mike O’Hara of the team’s official website reported this week that Golladay “looked like a veteran on the first day of minicamp,” adding that the 24-year-old’s “routes were sharp, and he cut and accelerated after catching the ball with power and no hesitation.”
Meanwhile, MLive’s Kyle Meinke sees a potential touchdown machine in the making.
“This guy could be so good, and he could be so good as soon as this year in the red zone,” Meinke wrote of Golladay as the team wrapped up mandatory minicamp this week. “He’s just chewing up everybody right now in the end zone.”nfl nike jersey cheap
Golden Tate and Marvin Jones might have company.
Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones averaged 5.5 yards per carry as a rookie in 2017, which puts him in the mix for the top spot on the running back depth chart in 2018. It might help that the 5’9”, somewhat fragile back has looked bigger and stronger at OTAs.
“He came back a little bit bigger, and he’s still moving around pretty good cheap nike nfl jersey with the added size,” Packers running backs coach Ben Sirmans said of Jones last week, per Brian Jones of 247Sports. “I think as he continues to get as I call it his ‘grown-man weight,’ that we’ll see some of that progress happen with him getting stronger.
“I think he saw also for himself what he could benefit from, particularly with his lower body. He could benefit from playing stronger, and not just from an injury standpoint avoiding those things, but also it will help him break more tackles and do those things.”cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale
It’s been a quiet stretch on the practice field for the Packers, with Clay Matthews’ broken nose, Aaron Rodgers’ contract talk and the addition of Marcedes Lewis hogging the headlines for a team that doesn’t reveal a lot to begin with.cheap nfl nike jersey
So for now, the bulked-up Jones is the real winner of the spring.
