    Two Womens Mike Nugent Jersey days following the cutdown deadline which included the release of Martavis Bryant, the Raiders have made another move at receiver, signing Brandon LaFell to a one-year deal according to his agent.The 31-year-old receiver had spent the past two seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and was released in early August. He was in a battle for playing time at receiver heading into camp and asked for his release.“We have been lobbying for his release for some time now and appreciate the Bengals granting our request,” LaFell’s agent Jonathan Feinsod told NFL.com.The 6-3, 210-pounder has never had a 1000-yard season in his career. His best season was in 2014 when he caught 74 passes for 953 yards and 7 touchdowns. He had 52 catches for 548 yards and 3 touchdowns last season in Cincinnati.He joins a receiver group that has Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson as the starters. LaFell will either battle Seth Roberts, Dwayne Harris Authentic Jared Cook Jersey , Johnny Holton, and Keon Hatcher for knock one of them off the roster.Update: Johnny Holton has been released in a corresponding move. These moves are now official.Follow @LeviDamien Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake has joined other players in complaining about the NFL’s officiating emphasis to discourage quarterback hits.”It’s sad,” Wake said Friday. “I don’t think it’s a secret that the league is concerned about player safety. It just depends on what players.”Wake’s teammate, end William Hayes, suffered a season-ending knee injury last week and said his foot caught in the turf as he was trying to avoid landing on Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.Wake said the league should acknowledge that when it comes to player safety, quarterbacks — including Miami’s Ryan Tannehill — come first.”Just tell me http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com/gareon-conley-jersey , ‘Listen, we’re going to protect quarterbacks differently,” Wake said. “Just be blunt about it. Not ‘we care about your safety,’ because you don’t care about my safety. You care about some people’s safety. My knees mean just as much to my family and my ability to play and provide just as Tannehill’s does. I can’t understand that his are more important than mine.”Rulings on quarterback hits have been a source of debate through the first three weeks of the NFL season, with players complaining about a lack of consistency on such calls.Wake described steps to make football safer an “uphill battle.””I think the crowd likes the violence,” he said. “You see plays on TV http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com/p.j.-hall-jersey , you see big hits, you see the oooh’s and the ahh’s, and they like that. That’s what I’m sure helps drive ratings.”
