Big Blue View tells us more about Brett Jones In case you missed the earlier news Discount Alexander Mattison Jersey , the Minnesota Vikings have acquired offensive lineman Brett Jones from the New York Football Giants in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. We knew that the Vikings were likely going to be looking for offensive line help, and it appears that the deal for Jones is a pretty good one for the purple.But, since I don’t know a whole lot about Jones, I reached out to our friend Ed Valentine from Big Blue View, SB Nation’s home for New York Giants football. He gave me a little bit of information about Jones, and here’s what he had to say.Well. . .the rule of thumb is that if fans of the other team don’t think it’s a good trade for them, then it must be a good trade for us Garrett Bradbury white jersey , right?As mentioned in the previous post about Jones, he did start 13 games for the Giants last season, with 12 of those starts coming at center (and the other coming at left guard). He got the same second-round tender placed on him this offseason as Nick Easton did, and could very well be playing for a big deal somewhere next season.I’m still reading up on what Jones has to offer, but someone that’s watched him a heck of a lot more than I have seems to think that the Vikings got a pretty good player out of the deal, and gave up just a seventh-round pick next year, when the Vikings should have several extra picks in their back pocket thanks to compensatory selections.On the surface Garrett Bradbury Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , this appears to be a solid move by Rick Spielman. We’ll see where Jones fits in once he finally gets to Minnesota, but I don’t see anything to be disappointed with at this point.Aaron Rodgers will not practice Wednesday, status for Sunday against Vikings is unknown Aaron Rodgers did not practice today, which is leading many to wonder will he be ready for this Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.Rodgers hurt his knee when the Packers faced the Chicago Bears Sunday before the end of the first half. However, Rodgers did come back in the third quarter and led the Packers to a victory with three touchdown passes. However, he was not putting much weight on his knee.NFL.com reports that Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said that Rodgers is working with other players who are rehabbing their own injuries and wanted people to know that Rodgers “did not suffer a setback to his injured knee.”But as for practice the rest of this week is still unknown. McCarthy also said, “He’s always responded Minnesota Vikings Jerseys Stitched , puts a lot of extra time in. So, we’ll see what tomorrow brings.”But as for the Vikings, they are preparing for Rodgers to play. Head coach Mike Zimmer to Everson Griffen, they feel Rodgers will be playing this Sunday.McCarthy also said that he is unsure if Rodgers will practice the rest of the week. Will that effect if Rodgers plays on Sunday? My guess is no. Even if Rodgers misses practice the rest of the week my money is still on McCarthy putting him in.
