RENTON http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/...ll-jersey-cheap , Wash. (AP) — offseason needs as veteran defensive end Ezekiel Ansah has agreed to a one-year deal with the team, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday night on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced by the team. NFL Network first reported the agreement.Ansah will join the Seahawks after six seasons with Detroit and may not be the final move made by Seattle in an attempt to bolster its pass rush with sacks leader Frank Clark traded to Kansas City before the draft last month.Two years ago, Ansah had 12 sacks and in 2015 had 14 ½ when he was voted to the Pro Bowl for the only time in his career. But his health will be a major concern with Ansah’s arrival in Seattle after he played in just seven games last season for Detroit due to shoulder problems that lingered the entire season.Seattle waited until after Tuesday’s deadline when free agent signings would count against compensatory picks in next year’s draft before reaching an agreement with Ansah. Seattle coach Pete Carroll made it clear during the NFL draft there were additional moves to come to help the pass rush.“There is work that we’re engaged in (during) this stage of filling up the roster and we’re very involved in what is coming up next,” Carroll said on April 27. “We’re not done, we have work to do. We’re excited about what’s coming up and you guys will see in time.”Ansah played last season on the franchise tag with the Lions and earned $17.1 million for a season that ended on injured reserve.Seattle’s decision to trade Clark before the draft ended up landing the Seahawks a bounty of needed picks in the draft and freed up more than $17 million in salary cap space, but also saw 13 sacks leave town from the one proven edge pass rusher on their roster. Jarran Reed had 10 ½ sacks from his defensive tackle position last season, but no other Seattle defensive lineman had more than three sacks.If he is healthy, Ansah will be an immediate boost. Seattle drafted L.J. Collier in the first round to play defensive end, but he was the only one of Seattle’s 11 draft picks used to address the pass rush. With the addition of Ansah and Collier, the Seahawks pass rush options now include Quinton Jefferson, Brandon Jackson and Jacob Martin. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The tempo at New York Jets practice is in midseason form.So is the intensity on the field, with guys flying around from sideline to sideline. The volume of the coaches is up Jachai Polite Jersey , too.It’s still only May, but there’s a noticeable — and audible — buzz around the new-look Jets.“That’s one thing I’ve been loving so much about this year so far is the competitiveness, and it starts with the coaches,” defensive end Leonard Williams said Wednesday. “Adam Gase is a crazy offensive coordinator and Gregg (Williams) is obviously a crazy D-coordinator. So, having those two go at it in practice, it kind of trickles down to the players, and the players go at it, too.“But it’s in a healthy way. Just a competition, getting better.”And, just to be clear, Leonard Williams wasn’t questioning his coaches’ sanity.“Yeah, when I say ‘crazy,'” he said Chuma Edoga Jersey , laughing, “it’s in a good way.”The combination of Gase as the head coach and mastermind of the offense, and Gregg Williams as the ‘mad scientist’ of the defense has been an intriguing storyline this offseason — particularly how the two would co-exist as they try to make their sides of the ball better than the other.“It’s fun to be out there,” Gase said. “There’s some juice in the air.”So far, the pace of practices during organized activities has been quicker than most at this time of year, when teams usually ease into their offseason programs before minicamp and then training camp.“I think it’s going to help a lot because we’re not waiting to compete,” Leonard Williams said. “We’re not waiting to get into pads, not waiting for the season to start, not waiting for like some big moment to get going. We’re trying to take it day by day — and it starts now.“I feel like that’s the mentality that’s running through the whole team and there’s a lot of fire in everybody right now.”Especially the men in charge.Gase, hired as coach of the Jets in January, had no qualms about bringing a strong-minded alpha-type leader such as Gregg Williams aboard to run the defense.Williams came with a reputation for being loud and, well, colorful with his language — and he hasn’t disappointed. The veteran defensive coordinator isn’t shy about letting his players know when they screw up. He also enjoys trying to frustrate quarterback Sam Darnold and the rest of the offense with blitzes from all angles.“I’m sure you guys have heard it from other dudes Trevon Wesco Jersey , but it’s just a lot more aggressive, like an attacking front,” defensive end Henry Anderson said. “It’s definitely a fun defense to play in.”Similarly, Gase has the offense working at a more rapid pace through the OTA practices than some players are used to. That not only has affected that side of the ball, but also the guys trying to defend against the Jets’ offense.Williams has his players focused on trying to get the ball away from the offense, whether that’s up front or way down the field on a long pass.“We’ll be flying downfield to get after the ball and we have to go right back to line up,” Leonard Williams said. “It’s helping us with conditioning and it’s helping us with everything, like when it comes down to third- or fourth-quarter and clutch situations when you have to push through when you’re tired and stuff like that. It’s great.”The whole vibe reminds Leonard Williams a lot of his college days at USC, where Ed Orgeron was his demanding defensive line coach.“He’s the best coach I’ve ever had in my life, I would say,” Williams said of Orgeron. “The reason why I say that is because he was so intense, it brought the best out of me. I’d be in meetings and hear his voice and I’d sit up straight. Or, he’d tell me something with so much intensity that I know how much passion he has behind it Shareef Miller Jersey , and it makes me have the same type of passion and fire for it.“We’d just feed off of each other and I like that passion he has.”Just as he and the rest of the Jets are experiencing with the new coaching staff.“Me, personally, I’ve loved it because every day is a challenge,” Gase said of preparing for Gregg Williams’ defense. “You’re not really sure what you’re going to get.”NOTES: Gase said the Jets are being cautious with first-round pick DT Quinnen Williams, who has been sidelined with a calf issue. Williams participated in individual and positional drills Wednesday, but not in team drills. … Leonard Williams is entering a contract year, but said he isn’t focused on trying to get a new deal before the regular season begins. The 2015 first-rounder believes he could thrive in the Jets’ new defense for years to come. “I definitely would want to stay here,” he said. “I feel like I’m a loyal type of player, like I never thought about transferring when I was in high school or college or anything like that. It’s kind of the same now. I’d like to stay on the team if I had the opportunity to.”
