With training camp only a few weeks away, most NFL players are enjoying one last vacation before the 2018 grind begins in earnest.
Others can’t wait for vacation to be over.cheap nfl jerseys china
Though the calendar has flipped to July, a number of well-known veterans remain without a team. For some, it’s a matter of money. For others, it’s age or injury.
Whatever the reason, these players are still waiting for the phone to ring.
For the most part, these veterans will find work at some point, whether it’s with a team that loses a player to an injury in training camp or one looking to shore up an area of weakness.

Dez Bryant already had a chance to sign with a new team. The Baltimore Ravens made him a multiyear offer in April, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, but he declined it.
If Bryant is willing to settle for a short-term prove-it deal—which he’s what he’s going to get at this point—teams will show interest in him, even if he’s not as dominant as he once was.
On the surface, the San Francisco 49ers don’t appear to be in need of wideout help. San Francisco has 11 wide receivers on its roster, including a pair it added in this year’s draft.
But as CBS Sports’ John Breech noted, the Niners do need help in the red zone.wholesale nfl jerseys
“In 2017, the 49ers ranked second-to-last in the NFC in red-zone scoring percentage, ahead of only the Arizona Cardinals. Although Bryant has had some trouble staying healthy over the past few years, he did manage to make it through the entire 2017 season unscathed nfl jerseys china and he put up some decent numbers in the process (69 catches, 838 yards, six touchdowns).”

With north of $45 million in cap space, the Niners have more than enough room to bring Bryant in, and they’re looking to make the jump from a rebuild to a contender. Bryant has also indicated his interest in joining them, according to Breech.
John Lynch hasn’t been shy about getting aggressive during his tenure as San Francisco’s general manager. It’s time for him to make another splash.
