Preston: The Ravens are finally thinking about life after Joe Flacco More I am glad Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti finally started thinking about life after Joe Flacco. Bisciotti didn’t want to approach that thought several months ago at the State of the Ravens news conference Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys after the 2017 season. At the time, he seemed to suggest Flacco had several more productive years ahead of him and that most franchise quarterbacks weren’t contemplating retirement at the age of 33, 34 or 35. But on Thursday night, the Ravens drafted Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson with the No. 32 overall pick in the first round and it’s apparent that the Ravens are thinking about life after Flacco.
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Gates, a former college basketball player, entered the league with the Chargers in 2003 as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State.
Gates has 927 catches for 11,508 yards and 114 touchdowns over his career. He has been named to the Pro Bowl eight times and was a three-time first-team All-Pro selection (2004-06).
Kareem Jackson, CB, Houston: The Alabama product had his share of difficulties adjusting to the pro game when he first arrived in Houston, but steadily played himself into one of the more consistent corners in the league. He started all 16 games as a rookie and before the 2015 season signed a big free-agent deal to stay with the Texans. Jackson has 14 career interceptions, including a career-high four in 2012.
Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Detroit: Lions fans were never truly happy with Pettigrew during his time in Detroit. There were some highlights, including 71 catches in 2010 followed by 83 grabs the next season, along with five touchdowns. The production started to decline from there, and halfway through the 2015 season he suffered a torn ACL. It kept him out all of 2016 before the Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys Lions released him that December. He hasn’t played in the NFL since.
