RUTHERFORD Parris Campbell Jersey , N.J. (AP) — of reach heading into the final week of the regular season, halfback Saquon Barkley is probably going to end his rookie season with the New York Giants with his share of records.The No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft has one league record within reach, can join a very select group of players with his yards from scrimmage total, and he can add to his windfall of Giants records.“He’s one of those rare guys,” said Dallas coach Jason Garrett, whose NFC East champion Cowboys (9-6) will face Barkley and the Giants (5-10) on Sunday at MetLife Stadium“We watched the whole season and he just continues to show up, he is a great football player, and I think everybody felt that way about him coming out of school,” Garrett added. “He was such a dominant player at Penn State and he’s just continued that. The challenge is, he beats you so many different ways. He can run the ball inside, he can bounce it and win on the edges, he’s a really good pass receiver, he’s great run-after-catch http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/miles-boykin-jersey-cheap , he’s physical, he’s hard to bring down with one guy but he’s got quickness and explosiveness, acceleration and speed.”Barkley’s statistics are impressive. He has rushed for 1,198 yards and 10 touchdowns, caught a team-high 87 passes for 688 yards and four touchdowns, and accumulated 1,886 yards from scrimmage.The 21-year-old running back enters the week third in the league in rushing. He is 236 yards behind Ezekiel Elliott of the Cowboys and 183 behind Todd Gurley of the Rams.Barkley needs two receptions to break Reggie Bush’s NFL mark (88) for rookie running backs, set in 2006. He needs 114 yards from scrimmage to join Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson (2,212 yards in 1983) and Edgerrin James (2,139 in 1999) as only rookies with at least 2,000 scrimmage yards in NFL history.He has already broken the team’s rookie record for yards rushing, needs 2 yards to become the fourth Giant with 1,200 yards rushing http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-bobby-okereke-jersey Jersey , and one rushing TD to set the team record, which he now shares with Bill Paschal (1943).“Not really worried about the records,” Barkley said Thursday. “I care less if I get to 2,000 or if I get the two receptions. I think it’ll be great, it’ll be special for not only myself, but for the team. It would be more special if we get a win.”Not winning the majority of games has been an adjustment for Barkley.“I learned that you’re going to be tested in the NFL,” he said. “There’s going to be highs, there’s going to be lows. You got to stay poised through it all. No matter what, you got to come in and you got to continue to work, continue to have that mindset to get better every single day.”Less than a month ago, Barkley talked about challenging for a rushing title. The dream went out the window the past two games as Tennessee and Indianapolis held him to a combined 74 yards rushing.With wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. out of the lineup with a quad injury, it allowed the Titans and Colts to load the box many times and limit Barkley. New York’s offensive line also has been spotty.Barkley raised a few eyebrows momentarily when he said refused to say the rushing title was out of reach.“You never know,” he said laughing. “I’m just kidding Noah Fant Jersey , but honestly, you never know. I’m not all about winning rushing titles, or ‘Me, Me, Me,’ but I do believe that I want to be a great player in this league, and I want to go down as one of the best to play in this league, and that’s something you got to do. If you look at all the great running backs, they at least got one (rushing title).”Barkley said his goal Sunday is to compete for his teammates and win. He won’t wait long to get back to work.“Figure out how I can go from doing what I did in my rookie year, and even elevate it to another level,” he said.That would be a pretty good year, too.NOTES: Beckham is looking less likely to play Sunday after missing Thursday’s practice. He has not played the last three games. … Also not practicing: LB Alec Ogletree (concussion), DL Mario Edwards (calf) http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/dalton-risner-jersey , TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) and WR Russell Shepard (ankle). LB B.J. Goodson (foot) was limited. WR Sterling Shepard (hip) and C Spencer Pulley (calf) practiced fully after being limited Wednesday. …Left-footed punter Brock Miller was re-signed to the practice squad. Dallas has a left-footed punter, Chris Jones. PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers expect third-round picks Diontae Johnson and Justin Layne to get their hands on the ball. That’s where the similarities in their job descriptions end.The Steelers began the process of reloading following the high-profile departure of star wide receiver Antonio Brown by taking Johnson with the 66th overall selection in the NFL draft on Friday night then took aim at a secondary in serious need of a ballhawk or two by grabbing Layne with the 83rd pick.Johnson understands the parallels he shares with Brown. Both are 5-foot-10. Both are around 180 pounds. Both played collegiately in the Mid-American Conference. Both posted 40-yard dash times that didn’t exactly dazzle pro scouts.Yet Johnson — selected with a pick the Steelers acquired when they sent Brown to Oakland in March — knows that’s where the parallels end. Brown is a great player. The three-year letterman at Toledo is eager to write his own story.“At the end of the day, I can only be me,” Johnson said. “Do what I do best.”Namely, attack defenses in a way that renders his lack of breakaway speed — at least according to the stopwatch — meaningless. The player who ran a so-so 4.53-second, 40-yard dash won over the Steelers’ coaching staff with his ability to win one-on-one battles at the line of scrimmage.Head coach Mike Tomlin noticed Johnson first then sent wide receivers coach Darry Drake to do some digging. What Drake found turned him into Johnson’s biggest advocate in the team’s draft war room.“He’s a tremendously gifted young man,” Drake said. “The most natural catcher that I’ve seen in a while. … He doesn’t have great timed speed but he plays the game fast. He’s really, really good against the press and this is a press league. DBs walk up to your face and try to fingerprint you. He gets off bumps, gets in and out of his breaks as well as anybody I’ve seen in a long time.”Johnson caught 43 passes for 663 yards and seven touchdowns for the Rockets as a redshirt junior last season and was named the MAC’s Special Teams Player of the Year after returning a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns. He’ll likely get a chance at special teams too, where Brown first distinguished himself after being taken in the sixth round out of Central Michigan in 2010 before developing into one of the top receivers in the league.Brown’s record-setting run in Pittsburgh ended with an ugly divorce in the offseason, with the Steelers sending him to the Raiders. They used one of the picks they acquired from Oakland to grab a player that joins a room that will have a decidedly different feel with the prolific but also high-maintenance Brown out west.This is the third straight season the Steelers have taken a wide receiver in the top three rounds of the draft. They selected JuJu Smith-Schuster in the second round in 2017 and James Washington in the second round last year. Pittsburgh signed former Jacksonville Jaguar Donte Moncrief to a two-year deal in March and also have Ryan Switzer and Eli Rogers in the mix.Drake likes Johnson’s versatility and expects the Steelers will move him around instead of just sticking him in the slot. Drake also isn’t worried about Johnson’s 40-time. The coach who counts Larry Fitzgerald among his former pupils doesn’t believe the stopwatch tells the whole story.“We want that guy, that blazer but normally with that package of that dynamic speed, very seldom do you get the total package Drew Lock Jersey ,” Drake said. “This guy has the ability to be a total package guy.”Pittsburgh is hoping to one day say the same about Layne, who arrived at Michigan State as a wide receiver before moving to cornerback during his freshman season to help address a spate of injuries at the position. At 6-2 and 192 pounds he has the size to be a potential difference maker on the outside for a secondary that picked off just five passes in 2018.“He’s competitive, he’s not afraid to throw it up in there,” Steelers defensive backs coach Teryl Austin said. “He’s got a lot of good things to work with.”Even if Layne didn’t always get a chance to show it. He picked off just three passes during his career with the Spartans, though his 15 pass breakups in 2018 ranked among the top 10 in the Football Bowl Subdivision.Layne called the move from offense to defense “nothing major.” Last he checked, the game is still the game.“I’ve been playing both ways my whole life,” said Layne, who went to Benedictine High School in Cleveland, the alma mater of late Hall of Fame Steelers coach Chuck Noll. “I’m a football player today. I expected to go in the second round but it’s all good. They’re going to feel me.”
