New Orleans Saints Customized Jerseys

1 post in this topic

Saints tight end Benjamin Watson announced last week that he will retire at the end of the season and the response to that news noted the impact that Watson has made off the field in addition to what he’s done on it over the course of his 15-year NFL career.That off-field work was also recognized by the NFLPA this week. The union named Watson as this week’s Community MVP in recognition of his “Freedom Friday” campaign. Watson made donations of $5 Austin Carr Color Rush Jersey ,000 to 15 different charities including the International Justice Mission and World Vision and made appeals each Friday for others to join him.The efforts resulted in over $100,000 in support for the chosen organizations.鈥淲ith so many players working for the betterment of their communities, it is an honor to be named NFLPA Community MVP this week,鈥?Watson said in a statement. 鈥淎s a husband , father, teammate聽and聽citizen, my mission is to use the time, talent and treasure God has given me to love and serve those in need New Orleans Saints Customized Jerseys , be a voice for the voiceless, and stand for justice and truth.鈥漌atson will receive $10,000 from the NFLPA for his foundation or a charity of his choice. He and all the other weekly winners will be eligible for the Alan Page Community Award at the end of the season. The Saints and Eagles can both strike quickly.But the Saints took the lead in this one methodically, which hasn’t always been their style.They might have gotten to the end zone for a 17-14 lead more quickly if not for penalties on left guard Andrus Peat (along with a phantom call on Max Unger) New Orleans Saints T-Shirts , but the end result was similar to so many Saints drives.Quarterback Drew Brees looked for Michael Thomas in the end zone, and his all-Pro wideout boxed out the defender and made an impressive grab.That capped an 18-play, 92-yard drive, which had to gain 112 yards to overcome the penalties. It also chewed an amazing 11:29 off the clock New Orleans Saints Hats , as the Eagles three-and-out to start the second half seems like an hour ago.Thomas has 10 catches for 140 yards and the score, and the Saints appear to have found the rhythm that eluded them early in the game.
