Rams TE Lance Kendricks falls 1 yard shy of $250,000 bonus
Rams tight endLance Kendricks finished the seasonranked 21st among tight ends with 499 receiving yards, but he’ll be kicking himself for the oneyard that got away.
As a part of his four-year, $18.5 million deal signed in 2015, Kendricks has $250,000 bonus should he reach 500 receiving yards this season, according to ESPN.
Talk about heartbreak, but that sums up the Rams’ season. AfterJared Goff took over under center in Week 11,Kendricks had no more than 51 yards in a game. He needed just 13 yards to get the bonus in Week 17 against the Cardinals but hauled in 2 of 3 targets for 12 yards. Yes, that’s 499 receiving yards for the season.
Kendricks wasn’t the only player to miss out on a bonus. DolphinsDECameron Wake missed out on an $875,000 bonus after notgetting a sack against the Patriots, and Colts kickerAdam Vinatieri missed out on $500,000 for failing to hit 90 percent of his field goal attempts.

Instead of another generation of backs who hit the hole hard and fast in the aggressive, downhill fashion of greats such as Jim Brown, Walter Payton, Adrian Peterson and Pittsburgh legend Jerome Bettis, Bell hopes to spawn a legion of little Le’Veons whose patience, particularly at the line of scrimmage, and vision allow them to freeze, survey their blockers and pick out a hole, oftentimes cutting back to the other side of the formation.
Limited Mens Mike Glennon Jersey It’s a hopeful legacy, but Bell is being far too humble. A revolutionary’s tactics must be replicable. Bell is much more an anomaly than a trail blazer. The 6-1, 225-pound Steelers star is a unique talent, the likes of which we might not soon witness again once he’s done playing.
For most players, it’s an addition to their game. He (Bell) does it every play. LaDainian Tomlinson, Fred Taylor, Edgerrin James, those guys were patient as well, but Bell stops, gathers himself to a standsill and then explodes through the hole.
