At some point during this night of brutal defense, Andujar and Torres sat together in the Yankees dugout.
That’s when Andujar turned to Torres and said, Hey, let’s put that aside. We’re going to have some good at-bats. We’ve got to play all nine innings… until the end of the game.
This little impromptu pep-talk by Andujar was meant for the both of them, and they sure took it to heart.
Lauletta’s approaching his first year in the NFL with the same mindset that Wholesale NFL Jerseys Nike led him to being a fourth-round pick of the Giants in the NFL draft. He will be battling second-year quarterback Davis Webb to be Eli Manning’s backup. But that’s not even on his mind. His goals are even simpler.
Where I am on the depth chart really isn’t under my control, so I just want to progress and learn, he said this weekend during the Giants’ rookie minicamp. I heard from a coach [Richmond offensive coordinator John Garrett] one time, ‘If you can get 1 percent better each day, and do that every day, you’ll be in a really good spot by the time the season gets here.’

If it works out, we’d love to have him, Pederson said. His veteran leadership brings a level of not only competition, but depth to the safety room, so if it works out, it would be great.
Just as it was a fit last year, Graham signing with the Eagles makes sense again in 2018. The Eagles have one of the best safety tandems in the NFL with Jenkins and Rodney McLeod, but already lost Jaylen Watkins to free agency and didn’t sign (or draft) any safeties as possible replacements Minnesota Vikings Cheap Jerseys for Watkins or Graham in free agency.
Right now, the leading contenders to back up Jenkins and McLeod include Tre Sullivan, a 2017 practice squad player; Jeremy Reaves, a 2018 undrafted free agent; and Chris Maragos, a 31-year old coming off a season-ending knee injury who is really more of a special teams player than safety.
