Most football fans assume that all professional football

Plenty are Christian Wilkins Jersey , but more than plenty aren’t. Dolphins defensive tackle Kendrick Norton most definitely isn’t.“Kendrick’s football career has come to an end and his family is asking for any donation as soon as possible to help with medical bills moving forward,” Norton’s agents wrote at a GoFundMe page, via Safid Deen of the .They also explained that Norton has undergone three surgeries since the accident, and that he needs at least two more surgeries “before he can proceed towards having a prosthetic.”They hope to raise $350,000 for Norton. As of this posting, the account has raised $2,680.Meanwhile, Norton posted his own message on Instagram: “I’m good thank you to everyone that checked on me!!! I’m good thanks for the prayers to God be the glory.”The good news for Norton is that, per a league source, his medical bills will be fully covered by the team’s and/or the NFL’s insurance programs. That said, Norton and his family may have other financial needs arising from the tragic accident and catastrophic injury, especially since he won’t be playing football again.A seventh-round pick in 2018, Norton received a signing bonus of less than $75 ,000, but the Panthers cut him before the regular-season started, avoiding what would have been a $480,000 salary. He spent most of the year on the Carolina practice squad (making far less than the $28,235 in weekly game checks he would have gotten), before joining Miami’s active roster in late December.Norton has a base salary of $495,000 for 2019, and he technically continues to be a member of the Dolphins’ roster. Unless he is released, he will at some point be placed on the non-football injury list. By rule, the Dolphins can choose to pay, or not pay, his 2019 salary. WATFORD, England (AP) — Doug Baldwin wants to catch a few more passes and play a more vital role in the Seattle Seahawks‘ passing game.As he sees it Garrett Bradbury Jersey , the one reception he had in the loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday just isn’t going to cut it.Baldwin, Seattle’s leading receiver each of the past four years, should be able to return to his reliable ways in a favorable matchup against the Oakland Raiders this weekend at Wembley Stadium.“I just look at it as another opportunity,” Baldwin said. “I’ve got to go out there and do my job and get open, and if the ball comes to me, it comes to me. That’s really what it comes down to. I’m not worried about it. I’ve got to focus on my job and do the best I can with the opportunities that I get.”The Raiders (1-4) will statistically be the worst defense the Seahawks (2-3) will have faced so far, having allowed 8.35 yards per reception, the second-worst average in the NFL, and 277.2 passing yards per game, good for 23rd.Baldwin had his lone catch on the Seahawks’ second play from scrimmage in the 33-31 loss to the Rams, marking only the second time since the end of the 2013 season the wide receiver had fewer than two receptions in a game.It was Baldwin’s second game back after he sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee in the season-opening road loss to the Denver Broncos. Both he and coach Pete Carroll said earlier this week that the knee is healthy, removing the injury as an excuse.The Seahawks have been trying to play more to their strengths, emphasizing their running game behind Chris Carson and Mike Davis. Carroll Noah Fant Jersey , though, insisted that despite the emergence of second-year wide receiver David Moore, Baldwin’s role has not changed.“Because the ball didn’t get to him has nothing to do with anything,” Carroll said. “That’s not part of any evaluation at all on our side. Sometimes that happens. We only completed 13 passes last week in a real productive offensive day. Doug will be right in the middle of that. He’s one of our best players and he’s been a great performer for a long time. There’s nothing to change that thought at all.”Quarterback Russell Wilson attempted only 21 passes against the Rams, the fewest he’s had in a game this season. The Seahawks could afford that, and hand the workload to the running backs, because they controlled the game for much of the first three quarters.Several big gains also helped. Seattle had five plays of 30 or more yards against Los Angeles, two of which resulted in touchdowns — a 39-yard pass by Wilson to Tyler Lockett in the second quarter and a 30-yard catch by Moore in the third.Baldwin, though, was conspicuously absent, with Wilson failing to throw to his longtime top target at any point after the third minute.“Doug’s always phenomenal,” Wilson said. “He’s one of the best in the world to do it. He’s always been a superstar, so the more times he can get the football , the better. That’s a great thing for us.”A two-time Pro Bowl selection — including last season, when he played in the game as an injury replacement — Baldwin’s omission isn’t the only issue the Seahawks have in the passing game.They have not ranked among the bottom third of teams in total offense since Wilson was drafted in 2012, though they were among the six worst passing offenses in the league during the quarterback’s first three years.They will enter the game against the Raiders ranked 27th in both categories, but after winning two of their last three games, and having a 100-yard rusher in each, Baldwin believes the offense is starting to take shape.“(Running the ball) balances us pretty well,” Baldwin said. “It makes it easier on the quarterback and the receivers when there are eight in the box having to respect our run game. It’s going to open some things up in the passing game, and as we go along in the season, I think it’ll make a lot of things easier for us going forward.”
