    It was a runner’s game Joey Bosa Jersey , more like a game of rugby than the game we know today. Running backs dominated the early years of the game of football, but over the years there has come a paradigm shift. Quarterbacks slowly stole the spotlight and the pass has overtaken the run as the dominant offensive force in football. With the advent of the passing era we have quarterbacks putting up numbers unheard of only a decade ago and this has created the need for dynamic receivers, like never before, to catch those passes.The greatest players in team sports make the players around them into better players. This is true in nearly every sport. There have been players who had great personal careers and lit up the highlight films, but without help from elsewhere on the field it was all for naught. Many teams are lucky to have one good receiver on their team Nick Bosa Jersey , but the teams who have been privileged to have two or more routinely find themselves with a high-scoring offense. With the shifted focus more on the passing game today there is a need for more and more excellent wide receiver tandems to emerge in the NFL. The league already has the likes of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon racking up the numbers in Washington, Roddy White and Julio Jones in Atlanta, “Megatron” Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate in Detroit, a couple great guys named Alshon Jeffrey and Brandon Marshall in Chicago and the list could go on. We have an unprecedented amount of talent at the wide receiver position today, and who knows who else will yet emerge and take the spotlight.In last year’s draft we saw perhaps the greatest rookie class of wide receivers in the league’s history. Mike Evans L.J. Collier Jersey , Odell Beckham, Kelvin Benjamin and Sammy Watkins all enjoyed tremendous seasons, yet only one of these guys was on a playoff team (Benjamin in Carolina). As good as these receivers are, their teams will probably want to add a formidable partner alongside them.Here we have a memorial to the greatest wide receiver tandems in the history of the NFL. A report indicated linebacker C.J. Mosley‘s preference was to return to the Ravens as long as there wasn’t a huge gap between what they were offering and what another team was willing to pay him as a free agent.We’re not sure what the Ravens were offering, but it appears they weren’t able to close enough of that gap. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Mosley has agreed to a massive five-year deal with the Jets.Rapoport reports that the deal is worth $85 million with $51 million in guaranteed money. That’s bigger than the four-year , $54 million deal that Kwon Alexander agreed to with the 49ers and would set a new standard for inside linebackers.As expected, the Jets have been busy in free agency since the legal tampering window opened on Monday. Mosley is joined at linebacker by Anthony Barr and the team has also reached agreements with wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Josh Bellamy.
