Even though they cut him in training camp last season Andy Isabella Jersey , kicker Jason Myers is happy to be back with the Seattle Seahawks.“It feels the same. I was very comfortable with everybody last year. ” Myers said. “Everything kind of felt like I never left in a way so just kind of building off what we did last year.”Myers was beat out for Seattle’s kicking job a season ago by veteran Sebastian Janikowski. Special teams Brian Schneider said they kept a tally of all kicks made by the two throughout the offseason and Janikowski had won the battle, which among other considerations gave him the job last season.The decision turned out pretty well for Myers though as he landed with the New York Jets and ended up as the AFC representative in the Pro Bowl.“A fresh start, kind of. What I went through two years ago, I took it as more of a learning experience than trying to get down on myself for getting let go in Jacksonville,” Myers said. “I took that as a positive and I knew I was hitting the ball well out here last year and it kept clicking back there in New York.”Myers was 33-of-36 on field goals and 30-of-33 on extra points for the Jets last season. However, the Jets elected not to retain Myers in free agency. With Janikowski heading toward retirement after his one year with the Seahawks, Myers knew the chance existed for him to head back to Seattle.“I definitely had my eye on Seattle the whole time and for them to call us it was a perfect fit,” Myers said.“I’m really big on the guys that I work with and the coaches. I kept in great contact with (Michael) Dickson, (Brian) Schneider and (Larry) Izzo so that helped. Closer to home, I’m from San Diego so staying on the West Coast. It’s beautiful up here. I love the organization and the fan base and it’s really second to none up here.” PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Scoring more points matters most to the Philadelphia Eagles.The Eagles took offensive players with four of their five picks in the NFL draft, passing up needs on defense to select the best players available to help them improve an offense that ranked 18th in scoring last year.They got their only defensive player on the final day of the three-day draft Clelin Ferrell Jersey , choosing Penn State edge rusher Shareef Miller in the fourth round on Saturday.Offense was the focus the first two days when the Eagles moved up three spots to select Washington State left tackle Andre Dillard with the 22nd pick in the first round. Penn State running back Miles Sanders was drafted in the second round at No. 53 and Stanford wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside at No. 57.“The way we’ve built our team, we want to score a lot of points and we want to make teams one-dimensional and get after the quarterback,” personnel boss Howie Roseman said. “That’s how we build this. That’s going to be how we continue to do it, but at the same time we are not trying to force anything.”Dillard isn’t expected to contribute right away, barring injuries. He’ll learn behind nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, who is 37 years old. But Sanders will be counted on to make an immediate impact.Sanders had 1,274 yards rushing, an average of 5.8 yards per carry, and nine touchdowns as a junior last year after replacing Saquon Barkley.“I gained a lot of patience, got more mature, started focusing on the little things more, got bigger Josh Oliver Jersey , stronger, faster, got deeper into the playbook, just preparing myself and making myself feel comfortable for when I finally get my chance to get in the game,” Sanders said about waiting for an opportunity to play. “And then also learning from Saquon, he’s a special guy on and off the field, so it’s just stuff like that I was just learning from him as far as how to watch film, what he looks for, just to prepare myself for when I finally get my chance.”Arcega-Whiteside gives quarterback Carson Wentz another big target, especially in the red zone.“He texted me right after I got picked,” Arcega-Whiteside said of Wentz. “Obviously, he is a great quarterback. He throws the ball very well. It almost seems like he always makes the right read. So having a guy like him to bring me in and teach me the ins and outs of the offense and knowing that he is going to put the ball on the money every single time gives me great confidence.”The Eagles concluded their draft by selecting Northwestern quarterback Clayton Thorson in the fifth round. They traded a seventh-round pick they acquired from New England to Indianapolis for defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway.Thorson will get a chance to develop behind Wentz and backup Nate Sudfeld. He was a four-year starter at Northwestern and threw for 10 ,731 yards with a 58.4 percent completion rate, 61 touchdowns and 45 interceptions.Ridgeway started six games in three seasons in Indianapolis. He only played in five games last year because of injuries.WHO THEY GOTDillard (No. 22), Sanders (No. 53), Arcega-Whiteside (No. 57), Miller (No. 138) and Thorson (No. 167) were Philadelphia’s picks.SURPRISE MOVETaking Thorson instead of a defensive player was a surprise because the Eagles didn’t address needs at linebacker and safety.HOW THEY DIDGetting Dillard, who was considered a top-12 talent, to protect Wentz’s blind side for the next decade was an excellent pick. Sanders fits in nicely in the offense and Arcega-Whiteside has a chance to make plenty of plays. If Miller becomes part of the defensive line rotation, this was a strong draft.WHAT’S NEXTThe Eagles are always aggressive in pursuing undrafted rookies and will look to find a few gems, especially on defense.
