e next year or so."At the annual NFL league meetings Michael Brockers Jersey , Los Angeles Rams Head Coach shared the idea that the Rams absolutely want to sign CB Marcus Peters to a long-term extension, per Lindsey Thiry:Peters was originally acquired by the Rams in the 2018 offseason by way of a trade which sent the Rams’ 2019 second-round pick and 2018 fourth-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for the mercurial cornerback. His first season with the Rams was a roller coaster as a calf injury sustained in week three against the Los Angeles Chargers hampered him for a while, making him one of the least effective corners in the league up until about week 10, per Pro Football Focus. The return of CB Aqib Talib sparked a change in Peters’ play though, and he went on to finish the second half of 2018 with a strong showing. Part of that can be attributed to playing more off coverage both in zone and man, and not needing to shadow receivers, instead living at his spot at right cornerback.Peters is currently on a fifth-year option that’ll cost the Rams just under $9.1m this year. Peters is slated to be a free agent in 2020, though according to Sean McVay, the Rams have interest in extending Peters for the foreseeable future. Looking at the cornerback market, it’s fair to assume Peters will demand top dollar Ethan Westbrooks Jersey , looking to likely top former Rams’ CB Trumaine Johnson’s five-year $72.5m with $45m guaranteed contract from the New York Jets.Where things become interesting is that the Rams simply have been reluctant to prioritize the secondary in terms of long-term extensions. It dates back to the days of CB’s Janoris Jenkins, Trumaine Johnson, and safeties Rodney McLeod, Lamarcus Joyner, T.J. McDonald, and Maurice Alexander, all of which weren’t handed long-term contracts and walked away to different franchises. General Manager Les Snead even called retaining the secondary “Priority A” many years ago, though things never materialized.Peters remains a highly talented player who is emotional and not a cookie-cutter personality, but does that mean he’s not worthy of a long-term extension? Who knows. The important factor is the Rams have another 16 games (potentially more) to evaluate how Peters fits into Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips’ defense. MEXICO CITY — The NFL’s decision to move the regular-season game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams due to the poor condition of the turf at Azteca Stadium has left many Mexicans disappointed, angered and wondering how it will affect the country’s future relationship with the league.After consulting with the players association and local officials John Sullivan Jersey , the NFL determined the conditions of the venue did not meet the standards for playability and moved the game back to the Los Angeles Coliseum. The Rams (9-1) and Chiefs (9-1) will face off Monday night in a much-anticipated game between the top two teams in each conference.Based solely on the teams’ records, the game was going to be the best matchup ever played outside the United States.But Mexico blew it.“Colossal shame” was the headline of the sports newspaper Record: “The league takes away the best game of the season due to the lousy state of the field that Estadio Azteca was not able to fix. The NFL has left, and its return is in jeopardy.”Azteca officials changed the playing surface from natural grass to a hybrid in May, but the turf hasn’t been ideal for several months due to its intense use. Since July 21, America and Cruz Azul, the two Liga MX teams that share the stadium, have played 23 games between them in the stadium, and the women’s professional team from America has played another seven games there.The stadium also hosted two concerts by Colombian singer Shakira on Oct. 11 and 12, and another from music channel Telehit on Nov. 7 that left the field in its worst condition in years.“I feel devastated, angered and ashamed Cory Littleton Jersey , all of that together,” said former NFL kicker Raul Allegre, who is Mexican and works as an analyst for ESPN Deportes. “I’m still trying to figure out how small minds were so irresponsible in the preparations for a game of this magnitude. I know that the world does not revolve around the NFL, but this is a great event not only for the sport but for the country, and it is inconceivable how it was taken so lightly.”According to an NFL study released last year, the game between the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans played in 2016 generated a $45 million impact on the local economy. The Mexican government said that last year’s game between the Raiders and the New England Patriots topped that number.The game is usually scheduled on the third weekend of November, when Mexicans celebrate the Revolution’s anniversary, and the authorities organize additional activities in order to entice fans to spend the entire weekend in the capital. For this year’s game, the fan-fest that drew more than 300,000 fans in Chapultepec Park was moved to the Zocalo Nickell Robey-Coleman Jersey , the country’s main square located in downtown Mexico City, in an attempt to draw even more fans. The NFL office in Mexico and the Sports Institute of Mexico City also scheduled 5k and 10k races for Sunday.Local authorities have not said whether those events will continue.“We have to learn from this experience so it won’t happen again in the future,” said Horacio De la Vega, director of the sports institute in Mexico City. “Everyone needs to assume their own responsibility in this. I think that the crew that takes care of the field in Azteca should have put more attention in such a big issue as the playing field is, and that did not happen.”Many fans are also angered because they already paid airfares and hotel fees that are probably lost.“I’m very upset because I already purchased my plane tickets and they canceled the game at the last minute. They promised to reimburse my money for the game ticket, but what about the other expenses, who is going to be held accountable for that?” said Víctor Reynoso, a Rams fan who was planning to come to the capital from the northern city of Monterrey.Reynoso is probably not alone, according to Mexico’s Tourism Secretary; around 30,000 fans typically visit the city for the weekend of the game.The federal government Andrew Whitworth Jersey , through the Tourism Secretary, pays the NFL $14.5 million for each game. Last year, the NFL and Televisa, which owns Estadio Azteca, announced that they had signed an extension to bring back games until the 2021 season.But it’s uncertain what will happen after Televisa failed to present a field up to NFL standards. Several NFL owners are wary of additional games at Azteca, and while the league is still keen on playing games in Mexico, it might be ready to consider other venues there. Monterrey and Guadalajara have stadiums capable of hosting NFL games, and both cities will be hosting 2026 World Cup matches.100 Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta
