RENTON, Wash. Tennessee Titans Jerseys . - Every now and then, even during games sometimes, Bruce Irvin will be overwhelmed by gratitude.Hell remember the two weeks he spent in an Atlanta jail as a teenager. Hell think about turning his life around and becoming a junior college football standout, only to lack the money to continue in school.And, of course, Irvin will remember all the criticism that was directed toward the Seattle Seahawks when they decided to make him the No. 15 pick of the 2012 draft.Sometimes Ill be in a game during a timeout break looking at the crowd and think, Dang, a lot of people said I wouldnt be here. Sometimes I thought about myself I wouldnt be more than what I was, Irvin said. Its a blessing. I thank God every day. ... Lord knows I was supposed to be in jail or dead. Just for me to be able to practice every day and come out here and watch film is a blessing. I try and make the most of letting the guys know it aint guaranteed.Once considered to be a risky draft choice who could only be a pass rusher in the NFL, Irvin has developed into an every down linebacker who rarely leaves the field. On first and second downs, Irvin is a strongside linebacker who plays on the line of scrimmage.During passing situations, Irvin gets to put his hand on the ground and do his favourite thing in football, rush the quarterback.Its a scenario that works for the Seahawks and one no one could have anticipated when Irvin entered the NFL.It makes me happy. That was the biggest knock on me that I was situational and I couldnt play the run, Irvin said. These coaches, Pete (Carroll) and (general manager) John (Schneider), they never wavered, they never pulled the plug on me and they kept believing in me. ... I cant ask for a better supporting cast and a better situation than the one Im in right now. I just have to continue to keep getting better and not let those guys down.Irvin is at the end of his third season, but early in Year 2 his future seemed in question. He had played mostly as an undersized pass-rushing defensive end his rookie season and while he was successful at getting to the quarterback, he also got pushed around in run defence. Seattles coaches wanted to keep it simple for him at first and not push him to learn multiple positions.When we went after him, we thought he would be a very special pass rusher because of his terrific speed, Carroll said. We thought he would have the ability to do other things beyond that and in time, it took us a little while, we tried to make it easy for him at first and left him at the Leo spot. As we grew with him, we expanded with him.Seattle started transitioning Irvin to linebacker at the start of his second season. He was suspended four games for using performance-enhancing substances, but Seattle stuck with its plan. The Seahawks were convinced their best defensive alignment was with K.J. Wright at weakside linebacker and Irvin as their future on the strongside.Irvin believes that if he was with any other team, hed still just be a situational player.Irvin is far from a finished product as a linebacker, but hes managed to retain his pass-rush ability. Irvin finished second in the regular season with seven sacks for Seattle, and hell likely be getting plenty of opportunities to try to get to Tom Brady against New England in the Super Bowl. When the teams played during the 2012 season in Seattle, the Patriots put the ball in the air 58 times, although their run game is more consistent now.Ken Norton Jr., making the decision to make me a linebacker, that probably saved my career, Irvin said. I always would have been an undersized defensive end. I would rather be a big linebacker than a small defensive end. I think the transition was smart.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/ap_nfl Rishard Matthews Womens Jersey . Earnshaw, 31, most recently spent time on loan in Israel with Maccabi Tel Aviv from Welsh club Cardiff City, which plays in Englands second-tier League Championship.

The team announced the suspension on its Twitter feed, with no further explanation. Manager Fredi Gonzalez also declined to elaborate when asked about the punishment before the Braves game against the Chicago Cubs. "Im not going to say anything other than that its an internal matter," he said. "Thats the way I like to handle stuff, and the Atlanta Braves like to handle stuff. And thats it. You can ask me 400 different ways and my way is that were going to handle it internally." The 34-year-old Uggla has played sparingly since rookie Tommy La Stella was promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett on May 28. The three-time All-Star is batting .162 with two homers and 10 RBIs in 48 games. The Braves acquired Uggla in a November 2010 trade with the Marlins, and then signed the three-time All-Star to a $62 million, five-year contract before his first game with Atlantaa. Eddie George Jersey. He is slated to make $13 million next year in his final season under the deal. Uggla had a 33-game hitting streak and connected for 36 homers in his first season with the Braves, but most of his numbers have been trending down over the past couple of years. He hit just .179 with 22 homers and 171 strikeouts in 2013, when Atlanta won the NL East and lost to the Dodgers in the division series. Gonzalez said he expects Uggla to be with the team when it begins the second half at home against the Phillies on Friday. He also isnt worried about the effect of the suspension on his team. "I dont think so. I got a pretty good pulse of our clubhouse," he said. "If anybody wants to talk to me, my door is always open. And they know that." Atlanta also promoted infielder Phil Gosselin from Triple-A Gwinnett before its series finale against the Cubs. Gosselin hit .345 with five homers and 30 RBIs in 88 games with Gwinnett. "Hes had a terrific first half of the Triple-A season," Gonzalez said.
