the deal he signed with Pittsburgh in 2017

They are beginning to think playoffs in Big D. They’ve been thinking Super Bowl for weeks in the Big Easy.On Thursday night http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-bobby-okereke-jersey Jersey , the Cowboys host the Saints in, well, a big game.New Orleans (10-1) has looked like the NFL’s best, even as it sits tied with the Rams for the league’s top record; the Saints handed Los Angeles its only defeat. Not only is the offense dynamic and Drew Brees is having the most proficient season of his spectacular career, but the defense appears more solid than any other Super Bowl threat.“Early in the year, they gave up some points and yards and things like that, but you just really look at them in their last I guess three or four ballgames,” Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan says. “They’re just really doing a good job of getting stops and creating negative plays for the other team, whether it be sacks or turnovers.“We’ve got a big challenge.”And he’s talking about the New Orleans D!The Dallas defense has been pretty darn good for much of the season, particularly recently. That’s as much a reason as any that the Cowboys (6-5) have taken over the NFC East lead.But they need to show a lot more to reach the Saints’ level.“We have all the confidence in ourselves Noah Fant Jersey ,” quarterback Dak Prescott says. “They put on their pants the same way we do. They’ve won 10, and I guess we’ve won three (in a row).It will be 11 for the Saints, unanimously top-ranked in the AP Pro32. They are 7˝-point favorites over No. 12 Dallas.SAINTS, 30-27KNOCKOUT POOLDallas did the job on Thanksgiving, and as Pro Picks heads into December, time to go with rejuvenated SEATTLE.No. 25 Buffalo (plus 5 1-2) at No. 21 MiamiBills on upswing.

We favor Broncos among them.BRONCOS, 23-10No. 2 Los Angeles Rams (minus 10) at No. 23 DetroitSo many road favorites this week. We definitely favor Rams.RAMS, 44-24No. 5 Chicago (minus 4) at No. 27 New York GiantsSo many road favorites — enough already.BEARS http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/dalton-risner-jersey , 20-13No. 15 Washington (plus 6 1-2) at No. 17 Philadelphia, Monday nightTwo injury-plagued teams trying to keep up with Dallas.EAGLES, 26-23No. 32 Arizona (plus 14 1-2) at No. 19 Green BayNot sure Packers should be favored by this much over U of Arizona.PACKERS, 28-20No. 3 Kansas City (minus 15) at No. 31 OaklandRemember when this was one of the NFL’s great rivalries?CHIEFS, 40-22No. 30 San Francisco (plus 10) at No. 10 SeattleWasn’t too long ago this was a great NFL rivalry, too.SEAHAWKS, 27-14No. 6 Los Angeles Chargers (plus 3 1-2) at No. 8 PittsburghSteelers don’t do anything easily. Maybe Philip Rivers will be perfect.STEELERS, 27-26No. 14 Carolina (minus 3 1-2) at No. 26 Tampa BayIf Panthers don’t snap out of funk soon, wild-card playoff spot will disappear.PANTHERS, 31-30No. 11 Indianapolis (minus 4) at No. 28 JacksonvilleSuddenly Drew Lock Jersey , Andrew Luck and Colts look like postseason-bound team.COLTS, 19-17No. 20 Cleveland (plus 6) at No. 7 HoustonTexans won’t win out, but won’t lose this one.TEXANS, 24-20No. 9 Minnesota (plus 6) at No. 4 New EnglandPatriots might win out, won’t lose this one.PATRIOTS, 34-26No. 29 New York Jets (plus 9 1-2) at No. 18 TennesseeTitans are an enigma. Slumping Jets are not.TITANS, 23-9 Soon-to-be Raiders receiver Antonio Brown was due to earn zero dollar and zero cents of guaranteed money over the next three years. Instead, he’ll get $30 million, fully guaranteed.Per a source with knowledge of the terms of the looming contract restructuring, the Raiders will guarantee $30 million of Brown’s future payout. Also http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/dre_mont-jones-jersey , the total amount he was due to earn through 2021 will increase from $38.925 million to $50.125 million.There are multiple ways to assess the new deal. Brown will make $16.7 million per year in hard dollars over the next three seasons. But when the $11.2 million is added to the $68 million in new money that Brown received two years ago from the Steelers, the new-money average on the entire deal spikes from $17 million to $19.8 million.Brown also can trigger $4 million in incentives, which would be paid in 2020 and 2021. If earned, he’ll receive an extra $15.2 million over the next three years, and the new-money average of the deal he signed with Pittsburgh in 2017 will be $20.8 million.Regardless of how the cat is skinned, Brown had made $33.79 million over the last two years and he was due to make $38.925 million, with no guarantees. That number has now gone up by $11.2 million, with $30 million of the $50.125 million he’ll make over the next three seasons now fully guaranteed.It’s not a bad outcome for a guy who was tied to the Steelers for three more seasons, and who presumably had no leverage to either demand a trade or finagle a new deal.
