TEMPE http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jawaan-taylor-jersey , Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals have signed free agent offensive lineman Justin Pugh to a five-year contract.The 6-foot-5, 311-pound Pugh — who has plays guard or tackle — spent the past five seasons with the New York Giants, where he started 63 games. Pugh was a first-round draft pick — 19th overall — out of Syracuse in 2013. The deal is worth $45 million with an average $9 million annual salary.He said at an introductory news conference Saturday that he was drawn by “the culture” of the Cardinals.“The culture that they have, the culture they had going on, the way they run this facility and program, I had no idea,” Pugh said. “So, to come out here and meet them. I was blown away. I’m an East Coast guy, born and raised in the Northeast, went to Syracuse, been playing in New York for five years. I was a little bit nervous coming out West. They put me at ease.”The 27-year-old lineman has started 36 games at right tackle, 26 games at left guard and one game at left tackle. He said he expects to play guard with the Cardinals, probably on the right side.He is the second offensive lineman the Cardinals have added in free agency. The team signed former Cincinnati tackle Andre Smith to a two-year contract on Friday.Pugh finished last season on injured reserve with a back injury that did not require surgery. But he said he expects no problems in that area.“I wasn’t concerned with it at all,” he said. “I went to Dr. (Robert) Watkins, who is probably regarded as one of the top back specialists in the country, and to hear it from him what I have going on Josh Oliver Jersey , nothing structurally, no surgery required. It was a muscle thing.”He said he probably tried to come back from the injury too soon and that landed him on injured reserve.Pugh went to college with Arizona All-Pro outside linebacker Chandler Jones. He said both vowed to be drafted in the first round when they were at Syracuse and both were.Pugh acknowledged one concern about moving to the desert.“Snakes,” he said. “I was like ‘Tell me I’m not going to have rattlesnakes on my front yard, and I’m good. I don’t mess with snakes.'” OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP)After winning a Heisman Trophy, being picked second overall in the 2012 NFL draft and becoming an instant sensation with the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin III is looking ahead to a promising future instead of wistfully gazing at his brilliant past.Griffin agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens last week, fully aware his role will be to back up Joe Flacco. He’s fine with that, because RG3 is far more interested in where his career is going rather than where it’s been.”It’s time to let that stuff go and move forward as a new player, a better player, a grown player,” Griffin said Wednesday at his introductory news conference. ”That’s what I’m excited about, and I’m glad that they saw that in me and have given me this opportunity.”Griffin was a star with Washington until a rash of injuries finally cost him his starting job. He missed the entire 2015 season after sustaining a concussion in the summer, and by then the Redskins were ready to move on without him.Griffin latched on with Cleveland in 2016 as a free agent. He started the opener, sustained a shoulder injury and ended up playing in only five games.Last year, he stayed in shape and watched NFL games on TV while waiting for a job offer that never came.”Playing football in the NFL is not something that’s promised. So you have to make sure you stay ready http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-quincy-williams-ii-jersey ,” Griffin said. ”I kept the faith and made sure I did my part, so when God manifested the opportunity, I was ready for it.”Looking trim and poised, wearing a white shirt and a deep blue suit (no tie, but with a pocket square), Griffin spoke excitedly about rekindling a career that once seemed destined to be remarkable. It may still turn out that way – he’s only 28 years old – but for now Griffin is playing behind a quarterback who’s missed six starts over a 10-year career.”I knew coming into this situation that this is Joe’s team,” he said. ”I’m excited about the opportunity to learn from him. Whatever capacity the coaches ask me to help, that’s what I’m here to do. I’m here to compete. I’m here to get better every single day.”Griffin’s most notable quality at Baylor, and during his rookie year with the Redskins, was his ability to make something happen when the pocket breaks down. He still intends to play that way, but with the understanding that staying healthy means avoiding an unnecessary hit.”What has been bad for me in the past is protecting myself outside the pocket,” Griffin said. ”It doesn’t mean I’m not going to run. It just means that when I do run, I’ll be smarter about it. I’ll slide earlier, get out of bounds when I have to. And then when it’s time to run for 70, I’ll run for 70.”There’s no telling whether he will get the chance, but at least Griffin is back in the NFL. And that sure beats what he went through last year.”Whenever you face adversity Ryquell Armstead Jersey , a couple of things can happen: You can crumble, get mad, be upset about it, or it can make you work harder,” Griffin said. ”You have to make sure you keep pushing through, keep doing what you know is going to help you get where you want to be. And that’s kind of what my focus was.”Griffin impressed the Ravens in a workout last month, and after he agreed to terms, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh exclaimed, ”I feel like we got a steal.”Griffin believes Harbaugh, general manager Ozzie Newsome and everyone else at that audition liked his attitude as much as his passing ability.”What they echoed to me was that they were impressed at how prepared I was for the opportunity, how eager I was to come in and just prove it to them,” Griffin said, ”as opposed to relying on the merits of what I’d done in the league before.”—
