seattle seahawks jerseys cheap

Out of all the high-profile franchise tag cases this spring, the least contentious seems to be between Super Bowl MVP Von Miller Jerseys and the Denver Broncos — and that is just the way Miller likes it.

“My teammates know what type of teammate I am,” he told the Denver Post on Wednesday after providing eyeglasses for nearly 300 local kids as part of his Von’s Vision foundation. “They know what type of guy I am. It’s just the business part of it. There’s really no hard feelings or anything like that. (The Broncos) know what type of guy I am. I’m expecting a deal any day. That’s just the type of mindset I have.”

The last part of that quote — I expect a deal any day — likely says more about Miller than it does the state of negotiations. Denver has a massively important first-round draft pick to make on Thursday and Miller has always been relentlessly positive.

Still, Miller knows that the Broncos can and will break the bank for him. If the team hopes to return to the Super Bowl, they’ll do it on the shoulders of a vicious pass rush like they did in 2015. Neither Mark Sanchez Jerseys or Trevor Siemian (or Sam Bradford or Brian Hoyer Jerseys or Ryan Fitzpatrick Jerseys or Paxton Lynch or Mike Glennon or Colin Kaepernick Jerseys) would be good enough to transform the inherent makeup of this team, which relies on ball control, a strong run game and bootleg option and a stronger defense.

While he waits, Miller seems content trying to win Dancing With The Stars while providing a very nice service for local children along the way. The non-stop media tour has been a welcome distraction of sorts as the July 15 negotiation window slowly creeps in.

“There’s really not anything negative about it,” Miller said. “Of course I want to be there with my guys. Just taking it one day at a time. I’m just working out, dancing, trying to do the best I can with that.”

Martz upset Owens jumped Bruce, Holt on HOF ballot

blackhawks jersey cheap

Former Rams coach Mike Martz is baffled that Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt are not among the 15 modern-era finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Martz expressed his frustration over Marvin Harrison and Terrell Owens “leapfrogging” Bruce and Holt into the finals in Owens’ first blackhawks jersey cheap year of eligibility.

“‘Surprised’ isn’t the word,” Martz said per the St. Louis Dispatch. “You can’t print how I felt when T.O. leapfrogged those two. That’s just plain out-and-out ridiculous.”

Martz said it was Owens’ persona that put him into Hall of Fame contention.

“Had they promoted themselves, which was contrary to everything we were about, they’d probably get in without an issue. That’s just not who we were.

“If they big-timed it and did all that dumb stuff, they’d probably get in earlier. I think they’ll eventually get in. I don’t think that’s an issue, but it’s tragic that people wholesale nfl jerseys think of them like that. If Marvin Harrison gets in, how could they not get in?”

Not everyone shares Martz’s sentiments. Andy Reid, Owens’ former coach with the Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys, said the wide receiver possesses the chops to be a Hall of Famer.

“As far as talent and production goes, T.O is absolutely a Hall of Famer,” Reid said this week per the Philadelphia Daily News.

Reid coached Owens for two seasons in Philadelphia. Owens helped lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl appearance during the 2004 season, but was also responsible for their tumultuous 2005 outing due to a falling out with quarterback Donovan McNabb (among other incidents).

“There was that one off-the-field issue with him, but everything else, he was a pleasure to coach,” Reid added. “The son of a gun would do anything cheap jerseys you asked him to do and he’d do it a hundred miles an hour, which not every player will do.”

Owens is second in career receiving yards (15,934), third in receiving touchdowns (153) and sixth in receptions (1,078).

The 2016 Hall of Fame’s Class will be announced during “NFL Honors” on the eve of the Super Bowl 50.

Heat set team shooting mark, rout Bulls

cheap blackhawks jersey

MIAMI (AP) — All the Miami Heat Jerseys did was put together the best shooting night in franchise history, an effort that matched the NBA’s top performance from the floor in the last 18 years.

ny giants jerseys cheap

This Joe Johnson move already looks like a winner.

new york jets jerseys cheap

The Heat shot 67.5 percent, set a season high for points and beat the Chicago Bulls Jerseys 129-111 on Tuesday night. Hassan Whiteside scored a career-high 26 points and had 14 rebounds, and Johnson had 24 points in his Miami home debut.

new york giants jerseys cheap

Miami’s 52-for-77 shooting was the best since Utah shot exactly that on Feb. 27, 2010, and no team has done better from the field since the Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys connected on 69.3 percent of their shots on March 13, 1998.

”The game felt effortless offensively,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. ”We’re not calling specific play calls to say, ‘OK, this is for you, you get your shot.’ It’s five-man basketball, guys are making the right play and if you see somebody open you follow the fundamental law of basketball and throw it to them.”

Heat guard Dwyane Wade was more succinct.

”I have no idea,” Wade said.

Clearly, neither did the Bulls. It was the worst field-goal percentage defense night for Chicago since the stat started being charted by STATS in the 1983-84 season, and after the Bulls got within 108-102 with about 5 minutes left they got outscored 21-9 the rest of the way – taking a loss that knocked them out cheap blackhawks jersey of the top eight in the Eastern Conference.

”A terrible defensive effort on our part,” Chicago’s Pau wholesale jerseys Gasol said. ”We knew that this team was a high-scoring team in the paint, we didn’t force them to take 3s, we didn’t force them to take long shots. They pretty much got everything that they wanted.”

Derrick Rose returned from a three-game absence because of injury and scored 17 points for Chicago, which lost for the 17th time in 25 games. Gasol had 15 points, nine rebounds and six assists, and Taj Gibson added 13 points for Chicago – but left in the third quarter with a right hamstring injury, grabbing at it and wincing in pain.

”I liked how I played,” Rose said.

No team had shot better in an NBA game this season than the 61.8 percent posted by San Antonio against Philadelphia on Dec. 7. The Heat topped that easily, with Deng, Whiteside and Johnson combining to shoot 26 for 34. Deng scored 20, Wade had 18 and Goran Dragic finished with 17 points and 11 assists.

Johnson is now 2-0 with the Heat, his first time winning cheap nba jerseys back-to-back games in nearly three months. View gallery MIAMI, FL – MARCH 1: Hassan cheap blackhawks jersey Whiteside #21 of the Miami Heat Jerseys goes for the lay up against Pau Gasol #1 …

”Great pickup, Heat,” Whiteside said. ”He’s an amazing player and I’m glad he’s on our side.”

The Heat improved to 5-2 in seven games since Chris Bosh became inactive because of a blood clot in his leg. Neither Bosh nor the team has offered any specifics or updates on his condition.


Bulls: Aaron Brooks Jerseys scored 16 points. … The change in Chicago’s defensive numbers are staggering. The Bulls allowed 99.7 points on 41.6 percent shooting in their first 34 games, and in 25 games since have given up more than 106 points on 46 percent shooting. … Rose played 24 minutes, with the Bulls going in saying they would be cautious in his return game.

Heat: Johnson passed Reggie Theus for 50th on the NBA’s career scoring list with his seventh point Tuesday. … Deng, who was with the Bulls for 10 seasons, had warm embraces for several Chicago staffers at halftime. … The Heat paid tribute to longtime team broadcasters Eric Reid Jerseys and Jose Paneda to commemorate their 2,000-games-called milestones. Reid and Paneda have been with the franchise since its inaugural season.


Whiteside has nine double-doubles in 11 games off the bench for the Heat, while generally playing starters’ minutes. Whiteside has double-doubles in each of his last six games, something no Heat reserve had ever done.


Golfer Matt Kuchar – in town for this week’s World Golf Championship at Doral – made a pair of chips from midcourt during a timeout, earning $10,000 for charity. Also courtside were a pair of retired professional hitters, baseball’s Mike Lowell and boxing’s Floyd Mayweather Jr. Miami clothier Kenny Sager was in the crowd as well, his birthday celebration marked by Heat mascot Burnie covering him with silly string.

Blackhawks look ahead after 12-game win streak ends

cheap custom jerseys

TAMPA — The longest winning streak in Chicago Blackhawks’ history ended Thursday when they lost 2-1 to the Tampa Bay Lightning. But coach Joel Quenneville feels the defending Stanley Cup champions have put themselves in a strong position for the remainder of the season by running off 12 consecutive victories.

raider jerseys for cheap

The Blackhawks were 13 points out of first place in the Western Conference after a 2-1 home loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Dec. 27. They began the streak two days later, and despite wholesale jerseys the loss to the Lightning are three points ahead of the Dallas Stars for the top spot in the Central Division and the Western Conference.


pittsburgh penguins jersey cheap

Quenneville feels the winning streak has the Blackhawks in a good position with 32 games remaining.

ny rangers jersey cheap

“[The streak] put us in a great spot,” he said. “You’re in that 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 [position in the standings] basically almost all year, I’d say even 10. You want to try to keep yourself out of that position. There’s a lot of hockey left to be sorted out but I really liked what we did. We still have to keep pushing.”

Moving forward was the prevailing message after the game.

Chicago (31-14-4) won’t have much time to think about the loss to the Lightning; the Blackhawks visit the Florida Panthers on Friday. The Panthers also had a 12-game win streak, from Dec. 15 to Jan. 10, but they are 0-3-1 in their past four games. That’s something the Blackhawks would like to avoid.

“It will be fun to play Florida,” defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson Jerseys said. “I bet they are pretty hungry too. I think they’ve lost four in a row. It’s going to be a big challenge.”

Chicago returned to Amalie Arena for the first cheap nhl jerseys time since Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, a 2-1 victory that gave the Blackhawks a 3-2 series lead. The Lightning entered the game Thursday on a six-game winning streak and used a smothering defense to frustrate the Blackhawks: Tampa Bay outshot Chicago 33-18 and won 32 of 48 faceoffs.

The top line of Jonathan Toews Jerseys, Marian Hossa Jerseys and Andrew Shaw Jerseys was held to two shots on goal. Lightning coach Jon Cooper dispatched the line of Ryan Callahan, J.T. Brown and Valtteri Filppula to keep them contained.

Callahan was credited with three hits. He also created two good scoring chances in the first period that were denied by Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford Jerseys.

“You can feel [the energy] in the building, going into the game.” Callahan said. “I think anytime we play Chicago cheap custom jerseys now you’re going to look across and you remember playing them in the Finals and you remember that feeling of losing to them. The extra emotion is there.”

Crawford made 31 saves but had his nine-game winning streak snapped. He said the Blackhawks have to focus on the next game.

“It was definitely a turning point cheap custom jerseys for our season,” Crawford said of the 12-game streak. “We are feeling good and have chemistry throughout the lines. It was definitely important to get on that streak and move up the standings.”

Lions GM: Drafting QB every year is ‘good football business’

cheap jerseys direct

For NFL teams, finding a starting quarterback is vital for success. Finding a quality backup is necessary insurance. And drafting quarterbacks with upside is just smart business.

redskins jersey cheap

With a market shortage on quality quarterbacks, landing a player with potential can lead to future success or aid in stockpiling draft picks. The Eagles under Andy Reid were the prime wholesale jerseys example of building up backup quarterbacks then swapping unproven talent for draft picks — i.e. Kevin Kolb.

Reuter 5.0: Five-round projection

This offseason, the hot backup name is Mike Glennon, who will wither away behind Jameis Winston if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers don’t cheap nfl jerseys swing a trade. Glennon has starting experience and an NFL arm. There are questions about his ability to be an everyday starter, but in a QB-needy league, a player like Glennon could bring back a solid haul for Tampa.

The New England Patriots are another example of franchise not afraid of adding quarterbacks, despite Tom Brady Jerseys’s presence. They did it with Matt Cassel Jerseys. Ryan Mallett Jerseys always generated buzz (even if it lacked substance). Next offseason Jimmy Garoppolo Jerseys will be the hot name on the trade market along with Bengals backup AJ McCarron — both entering the final year of their rookie deals.

Coming from New England, Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn knows taking swings at quarterbacks in the draft is a calculated risk every good organization should make, even if that swing misses.

“I think it’s really good football business to acquire a young quarterback every year or every other year,” Quinn said, via the Detroit Free Press. “There’s such a value in the position and nowadays in college football there’s a lot of spread offenses, which means it’s a lot different than pro football. So it takes these young quarterbacks time to develop. So if you can add a young quarterback every year or every other year to your roster, it’s good football business in my mind. So you have time to develop them, either on the practice squad or as a backup, before eventually them having to play in a game.”

The Lions haven’t drafted a quarterback since taking Matthew Stafford Jerseys No. 1 overall in 2009. With no developmental quarterback on the roster, expect that to change in Quinn’s first season in Detroit.

The Patriots didn’t fear using a second-round pick in 2014 on a player who might not play a significant snap in his entire tenure with the team. It’s easier to do while shining multiple Lombardi Trophies, to be sure, but it’s also good sense. It will be blatantly clear when we hear next offseason teams are considering sending at first-round pick for Garoppolo.

Reds win behind Votto, Phillips, Tim Adleman

cheap jerseys for sale

CINCINNATI — The Reds have started piling up home runs during this homestand, and they continued the trend on Friday with a 5-1 victory over the Brewers. Using early home runs by Joey Votto Jerseys and Brandon Phillips Jerseys, Cincinnati gained its first three-game winning streak since the first three games of the season.

st louis rams jerseys cheap

Facing starter Tyler Cravy Jerseys, who filled in for Milwaukee while Wily Peralta was on paternity leave, Votto gave the Reds a 1-0 with a two-homer in the bottom of the first inning cheap jerseys. The shot on a 2-2 pitch to center field gave Votto his fourth homer of the season. Adam Duvall Jerseys hit an RBI double through the gap to the wall in left-center field in the second inning. With one out in the third inning, Phillips connected on a 1-2 pitch for a three-run homer to left field and a 5-0 lead.

Cincinnati’s streak of quality starts ended at five, but Tim Adleman gave his club a solid five-inning performance in his second big league game. Aldeman gave up one earned run and four hits with three walks and four strikeouts but threw 101 pitches wholesale mlb jerseys. Alex Presley’s leadoff homer to right field on a 1-0 pitch in the fifth was the lone run notched against the right-hander. It was up to the bullpen to notch the final 12 outs, and Caleb Cotham, Blake Wood and Tony Cingrani Jerseys combined to not allow a run. It finally snapped the Reds bullpen’s MLB record streak of 23 games with at least one run allowed.

redskins jerseys cheap

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED Dat Dude goes deep again: With his third inning three-run shot, Phillips has a homer in each of his last three games for the first time since June 13-15, 2012. The three RBIs also gave him 800 RBIs as a member of the Reds. His homer on Friday left the bat at 104 mph and traveled 380 feet, according to Statcast™.

Lacking quality: It’s tough to lay much blame on Cravy, who made just one Triple-A start before a surprise call-up to pitch in Peralta’s place, but his brief outing perpetuated the Brewers’ starting pitching problems. Milwaukee’s starters have a 6.34 ERA after 29 games, which would cheap jerseys for sale tie the 1939 St. Louis Browns for second-worst in Major League history. The 1996 Tigers own the worst starters’ ERA of all time, at 6.64.

Season of woe continues as 76ers lose again

world cup jerseys cheap

Los Angeles (AFP) – Dirk Nowitzki scored 21 points as the Dallas Mavericks Jerseys sent the Philadelphia 76ers Jerseys world cup jerseys cheap spinning to their 11th straight defeat since the new NBA season began, the worst record of any team in the league.

www cheapjerseys

Nowitzki piled up the points in the final quarter as the 76ers slipped to a 92-86 defeat which left them at 0-11, the only team in the NBA without a win.


steelers merchandise cheap

The Mavericks were well below their best, with Nowitzki missing 10 of 16 attempts from the floor.

But it was good enough to edge out the 76ers, who have already faced accusations from disgruntled fans that they have thrown in the towel with the new season barely three weeks old.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said despite the 76ers’ modest roster wholesale jerseys, they had been awkward opponents.

“This is a hard team to get good shots against,” Carlisle said. “They have young, motivated guys on small contracts. They’re playing their [butts] off. It’s good to see from a competitive standpoint but it makes it hard to get shots.”

Nowitzki was also generous in victory. View gallery Brandon Knight #3 of the Phoenix Suns attempts to control the ball under pressure from Larry Nance J …

“They kept staying in the game, clawing and scratching and they’re obviously desperate to get their first win,” Nowitzki said. “We had to dig deep and grind it out.”

Nevertheless the stats don’t lie and Philadelphia is now in the grip of a desperate losing streak.

Including the tail-end of last season, the 76ers have now cheap nba jerseys slumped to 21 straight defeats, just five shy of the all-time record for longest losing streak in NBA history — which the 76ers themselves share with the Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys.

Sixers coach Brett Brown bemoaned his team’s high turnover total — 27 — which resulted in 28 Dallas points.

“You’re not going to win any basketball games with 27 turnovers,” Brown said.

Sixers rookie center Jahlil Okafor, who contributed 19 points, insists the team was close to turning a corner.

“We’re on the right path,” Okafor said. “We see the bigger picture, and I really believe that it’s all going to add up, and we’re definitely right there.”

In other matches on Monday, the Los Angeles Lakers’ disappointing start to the season continued with the team crashing 120-101 at Phoenix.

The Suns guard Brandon Knight recorded the first triple-double of his career with 30 points as the Lakers faded in the fourth quarter.

The Lakers rested veteran Kobe Bryant and had kept pace with the Suns until the fourth quarter, when Phoenix broke clear with world cup jerseys cheap a 21-8 scoring run to settle the contest.

In Texas, the San Antonio Spurs Jerseys recorded their fifth straight victory with a 93-80 win over the Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys.

Forward Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points while veterans Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker both contributed key shots at pivotal moments of the match.

O’Ree, Bettman attend premiere of ‘Soul on Ice’

cheap jj watt jersey

WASHINGTON — Willie O’Ree wasn’t allowed an early screening of the film “Soul on Ice: Past, Present & Future.”

cheap dallas cowboys stuff

His co-worker at the NHL, Ken Martin, the League’s cheap jj watt jersey senior vice president of community and diversity programming, wanted him to have a visceral reaction to a movie that is as much about him and his legacy as a groundbreaker in hockey as anyone else.


yankees jerseys cheap

O’Ree broke the color barrier in the NHL when he debuted for the Boston Bruins Jerseys on Jan. 18, 1958. He is now a pioneer for diversity in hockey through the NHL’s Hockey is for Everyone program as the League’s director of cause marketing.

www cheap-nike com

He found out Wednesday night that Martin was right, it was worth the wait.

A few minutes after watching the film in its U.S. premiere at Landmark E Street Cinema in a crowd of nearly 200, including NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, deputy commissioner Bill Daly, Washington Capitals chairman Ted Leonsis and coach Barry Trotz, O’Ree was near tears.

“Unbelievable,” O’Ree said. “Now I know why he didn’t want me to see it. It was breathtaking, really. I was thrilled when I saw it.”

The film, the first in the cinematic career of director Damon Kwame Mason and the winner of the audience choice award for documentary film at the Edmonton International Film Festival last year, takes the audience through the winding history of black players in hockey.

Commissioner Bettman said Mason’s film is a story that hasn’t been told enough, and is one that is worth telling more because it shows how inclusive the game of hockey historically has been.

“It’s a story that needed to be told, but not many people even imagined it could exist,” he said. “If you told somebody about this movie without actually seeing it, they’d think it was a work of fiction, like ‘how could it be because I’ve never heard of such a thing’ is what you get from most people.”

The film toggles back and forth, going from the turn of the 19th century into the 20th century, when the Colored Hockey League was in play in Nova Scotia, to present time. It features now 20-year-old prospect Jaden Lindo’s tumultuous draft year, from hype to a knee injury to getting selected in the sixth round of the 2014 NHL Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Lindo, whose parents never skated and didn’t know much about hockey when he told them he wanted to play, says he was once asked what it was like to be a black hockey player. His answer was that he didn’t know, because he sees himself as a hockey player who happens to be black.

The audience is treated to the story of Herb Carnegie, a Canadian who turned down a contract from the New York Rangers in 1948 because of personal and family reasons. It documents that former Toronto Maple Leafs owner Conn Smythe once said if Carnegie was white he’d sign him.

O’Ree’s story, of him playing 21 professional seasons, including 45 games with the Bruins despite being blind in one eye, is a big part of the film. So too are former players Tony McKegney, Mike Marson and Val James, the first American-born black player in the NHL.

Modern day NHL players such as Philadelphia wholesale jerseys Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds Jerseys, Montreal Canadiens Jerseys defenseman P.K. Subban Jerseys and Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Trevor Daley Jerseys are prominently featured, as are their parents.

It was all Mason’s way of telling a history of hockey story he believes can be an educational tool to young black players today, one he never had as a kid growing up in Edmonton in the 1970s and 80s.

“I didn’t want these kids to grow up thinking it’s P.K. Subban Jerseys and that’s where it started,” Mason said. “I wanted them to know there’s a long standing history in this game cheap jj watt jersey and for us to show this history it is a service and it will broaden the game. You wait and you see; in 20 years the game is going to look at a lot different and it’s going to be the biggest game in North America. I promise you on this one cheap nhl jerseys, because it’s going to be so inclusive.”

The film did its part in educating, entertaining and enlightening an audience that included a collection of people from the hockey world, the political world, including congressmen, and members of Washington’s Fort Dupont Ice Hockey Club, which since 1978 has provided local and inner city youth an opportunity to participate in an organized hockey league.

“What I liked about it is it was three stories for me — it was a history of the game, Kwame’s story, and it was young Jaden’s story,” Trotz said. “There are some things that I feel ignorant on being someone in the game and not knowing all the story. It’s quite enlightening.”

Mason said his goal now is to work with the NHL to hopefully get the film shown nationally through the League’s broadcast partners, NBC in the United States and Sportsnet in Canada.

He feels if more eyes can see it, the discussion of diversity and inclusion can grow, which would only benefit the NHL and the game at large.

“It has some funny moments, but it also has some educational moments,” Mason said. “It has a way of making people think and say, ‘Hey, let’s have a bigger discussion about this game and let’s see what more we can do with this game and let’s see if we can attract a bigger audience.'”

Rob Gronkowski: Low hits are part of the game

cheap jersey boy tickets

New England Patriots Jerseys fans hold their breath every time a defender tackles Rob Gronkowski Jerseys low.

cheap jersey maxi dresses uk

Given the heart palpitations caused by such collisions, Pats fans got worked up this week when Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jerseys Jr. described hitting Gronk low, at the knees, as the best way to take down the 6-foot-6, 265-pound tight end.

nike jerseys cheap wholesale

Gronk issued a playful retort earlier in the week, but Thursday brushed aside any notion that he’s worried about the Broncos targeting his knees.

cheap women jerseys

“It’s part of the game. I’ve been seeing it all year,” Gronkowski said of low hits, via the team’s official website. “I’ve been seeing it my whole career. I’ve just got to get low, get my shoulder down, protect the ball, just protect myself in any way when I see a lot of guys coming or when I know there’s not a chance to make that many yards, possibly just go down on that play, but if you can make a play then try and make a play, get more yards, but at the same time I’ve just got to watch it wholesale jerseys, get your pads down. It’s football, so you’ve got to be ready for contact at all times.”

In the Pats’ Week 12 loss to the Broncos, Gronkowski exited in the fourth quarter with a knee injury after his leg whipped back on a low hit by a defender. The injury caused him to miss the cheap nfl jerseys following contest and influenced his play down the stretch. Gronk was officially listed as limited in Thursday’s practice with knee/back injuries.

With the NFL placing emphasis on defenders not hitting at the head/neck level, many players, especially smaller defensive backs, have gone low to attempt to bring down behemoths — that’s not to cheap jersey boy tickets suggest taking out the knees is a new philosophy, it’s as old as football.

Gronk added that he plans on dishing out as much punishment as he receives.

“Everyone wants to see collisions, so I’m ready to give some,” he said.

MIAMI — After turning in one of the most decorated individual seasons in Marlins history, Dee Gordon Jerseys might be capping his year with a long-term contract. The All-Star second baseman said his agent has been in discussions with Miami about an extension.

“My agent is doing the talking,” Gordon said on the show. “They’re just keeping me in the loop wholesale jerseys. I think it’s going pretty well right now. We’ll see how that goes. I’m just playing the waiting game. We’re going to do the right thing.”

For months, the Marlins have made it clear they are open to offering an extension to the 27-year-old second baseman.

Acquired from the Dodgers in a seven-player deal at the 2014 Winter Meetings, Gordon had a breakout season. He paced the National League in batting average (.333), and his 205 hits and 58 stolen bases were the most in the Majors.

Gordon is the first player to lead the NL in batting average and stolen bases since Jackie Robinson in 1949. He also is the first infielder to win the Gold Glove, batting title and stolen base crown in the same year.

Gordon made $2.5 million in 2015, with the Dodgers picking up the entire salary. He’s arbitration-eligible and won’t qualify for free agency until 2019.
