Default Fitzgerald said, Peterson is.
While the Texans appear comfortable waiting on a new deal for Jadeveon Clowney Adidas Mats Zuccarello Jersey , Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack could get new deals. That would help set the defensive line market for the Clowneys and DeMarcus Lawrences.

Lawrence will play this season on the franchise tag, making $17.143 million. He and Ezekiel Ansah, who also is playing under the franchise tag, have the highest base salaries among defensive linemen for 2018.

“I ain’t tripping,” Lawrence said. “We are going to let [other defensive linemen seeking new deals] do what they do. We are going to follow up.”

Lawrence, 26, wants to “secure the bag” with another big season. After making only nine sacks his first three seasons while missing 16 games with injuries and a four-game suspension Youth Oren Burks Jersey , he had 14.5 sacks last season.

The Cowboys get another season to make sure Lawrence isn’t a one-season wonder, giving Lawrence another chance to prove he’s the real deal. He’s betting on himself.

“As a kid, they tell you the sky is the limit,” Lawrence said. “They are lying to you. You set your own limits. That’s why I say secure the bag. I’m going to go out there each and every day, showing my son and showing my family I set my own limits. I don’t let nobody put no roof over my head.”

The Cowboys have had three other players play under the franchise tag: Flozell Adams in 2002, Ken Hamlin in 2008 and Anthony Spencer in 2012 and ’13.

The Latest on the Miami Dolphins anthem policy (all times local):

10:15 p.m.

The NFL and National Football League Players Association released a joint statement, saying:

”The NFL and NFLPA Authentic Robert Griffin III Jersey , through recent discussions, have been working on a resolution to the anthem issue. In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA’s grievance and on the NFL’s anthem policy. No new rules relating to the anthem will be issued or enforced for the next several weeks while these confidential discussions are ongoing.

”The NFL and NFLPA reflect the great values of America, which are repeatedly demonstrated by the many players doing extraordinary work in communities across our country to promote equality, fairness and justice.

”Our shared focus will remain on finding a solution to the anthem issue through mutual, good faith commitments, outside of litigation.”

Rashad Robinson Jeff Petry Jersey Kids , executive director of Color of Change, an online civil rights organization that has supported boycotting the NFL, points out that the Dolphins’ policy puts protesting the national anthem on the same plane as testing positive for drugs or domestic violence charges.

A positive drug test carries a potential four-game suspension, and domestic violence charges can carry a six-game suspension and even a lifetime ban for a second offense.

”It speaks volumes about what they think about black people,” Robinson said. ”What the Dolphins and owner Stephen Ross are doing is making a real claim that the injustices that people are speaking out against don’t matter.”

Robinson said he has been in touch in recent months with Ross’ Initiative in Sports for Equality, or RISE, to help find new leadership for the nonprofit. RISE is ”dedicated to harnessing the unifying power of sports to improve race relations and drive social progress Adidas Evgenii Dadonov Jersey ,” according to the organization’s website.

”(Ross’) idea of harnessing people’s political voice is shutting it down,” Robinson said.

The Dolphins say ”all options are still open” regarding the team’s decision to include protesting the anthem on the large list of violations considered conduct detrimental to the club and subject to a suspension of up to four games under a team policy issued this week.

The ”Proper Anthem Conduct” section is just one sentence in a nine-page discipline document provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the policy who insisted on anonymity because the document is not public. It classifies anthem protests under a large list of ”conduct detrimental to the club” that includes gambling, riding motorcycles and more, all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine or both.
