(SportsNetwork.com) - In the salary-cap era of the NFL, its all about allocating assets and one of the major reasons the Seattle Seahawks are preparing to play in their second straight Super Bowl stems from the fact that they hit on quarterback Russell Wilson in the third round of the draft. Instead of having to invest eight figures at the games most important position, Seattle paid Wilson a little less than $700,000 in 2014, meaning it could earmark significant dollars to other positions and build perhaps the deepest roster in all of football. That dynamic that will be changing rather quickly, however. Wilsons rookie deal expires in 2015 and the two Super Bowl appearances in three seasons means that eight figures is on the horizon for the third-year pro in the offseason with some speculating he will end up as the highest paid quarterback in the game at least until the Colts Andrew Luck cashes in. As the most playoff-tested signal caller in NFL history, the Patriots Tom Brady made just under $15 million for his work in leading New England to its record-tying eighth Super Bowl appearance so the Pats are well-versed on how to build a roster around a leading man who has already cashed in his chips. And one of the major tenants of that philosophy is the act of the strategical strike in free agency -- when you think youre close to the Lombardi Trophy, target a difference maker. The Patriots did exactly that in the offseason by signing veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis after he was released by Tampa Bay, inking the star to a two- year backloaded deal. In Revis first season in Foxborough, he delivered in a big way as the lockdown corner capable of eliminating one side of the football field, while enabling Bill Belichick and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia to be much more inventive with their various blitz and coverage schemes. The four-time All-Pro amassed 47 tackles with two interceptions and 14 passes defensed as the Patriots finished the regular season 12-4 with their latest AFC East crown. The divisional round against Baltimore proved to be Revis toughest game of the season, largely because the Ravens Steve Smith is one of the few receivers in football who can outphysical the Pitt product. Revis rebounded, though, in the AFC Championship Game as he picked off Luck during the Patriots 45-7 rout. Although the Pats are semi-regulars in the big game, this is Revis first trip and he brings an added dimension which makes New England a far more well- rounded team. Everything is surreal right now, Revis said of reaching the Super Bowl for the first time. Actually Im asking some of the guys who have been here thats on this team, You know, whats the process? Vince (Wilfork) has been helping me. (Devin McCourty) has been helping me. Even (ex-Seahawk Brandon) Browner. Im just trying to go about the process the best way I can. Revis will be tackling that process as perhaps the best man-to-man coverage corner in the game. Opponents often assume Belichick will just lock Revis up with their best receiver but the Pats coach is usually a step ahead and he could use Revis to shadow a lesser threat while rolling bracket coverage to the other side. Its also far easier to overload the blitz with Revis holding down the fort on the edge and his presence makes rushing three into a viable strategy because seven can drop into coverage, along with Revis, in an almost basketball- style box-and-one defense. Its just being competitive, Revis said of his success. In this league, I think as a defensive back, thats what needs to drive you. The whole secondary feels that same way. We dont want any balls caught. The Seahawks and Pats defensive backfields obviously wont be playing each other in Super Bowl XLIX but the comparisons are obvious, as Seattles group, led by All-Pros Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas, is regarded as the best in football after allowing an NFL-low 185.6 passing yards per game. New England, with Revis, Browner and safety Devin McCourty, is considered a step behind. Revis is often mentioned with Sherman when a debate over the best cornerback breaks out but its a little like comparing apples and oranges. Seattle plays a lot of Cover-3 and Sherman stays on the left side of the field, meaning the opposing offense can avoid any matchup it wants by simply varying the formations. Revis, on the other hand, will shadow a receiver. There are pluses and minus to each philosophy. Revis supporters point to the fact he is asked to do more but fail to realize his movements mean other lesser players also have to shift and do things they arent necessarily comfortable with. Im sure people will make comparisons, Sherman said. They always do. But we play the game two different ways. Hes plays it more meticulous and more conventional on his technique. Mine is more unorthodox. Its more difficult to replicate what I do on the football field. So its two different styles to compare. I play my way and he plays his way and both of them are effective. Revis and Sherman once engaged in a rather epic Twitter war with each proclaiming they were the best corner. These days, its shifted into more of a mutual admiration society. I mean their secondary is one of the best in the league, Revis said of Sherman and Co. They are making plays for the last couple of years. If you look at it on film, theyve definitely made a lot of plays. They play well together and I think thats the key. They are very versatile in what they do and they are a very physical group. Hes had a great year and hes been doing his job effectively, Sherman countered when discussing Revis. I like what Ive seen from his game. Its hard not to. (Revis is) savvy, instinctive, hes deceptively fast, Pats CB Kyle Arrington told the Boston Globe. He has longer arms than you would think, so hes patient on the line of scrimmage. He doesnt care about the scoreboard, in a sense of getting beat, things like that. Hes just a good football player. Good is kind of understating things, something Arrington was quick to correct. Theres only a few guys that come around like that in a generation, Arrington said, and were just fortunate to have a guy like that on our team. Joel Heath Jersey . -- Chris Jones and Louisville have done a tremendous job protecting the basketball this season and thats led to easy victories. Lamar Miller Jersey . Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema scored two goals each Wednesday night in a 6-1 rout of Schalke in the first leg of their second-round matchup. "We played a very, very good match," Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said. "We got well into the match, scored two early goals and that opened the game and left us able to counter and to use the speed of our players. http://www.thetexansfootballpro.us/texa ... authentic/. Selected by the Titans in the 2007 NFL Draft, Johnson rejoined the club last season after a five-year stint with Indianapolis. Shane Lechler Jersey .com) - Nathan MacKinnon scored the winning goal in the shootout as the Colorado Avalanche rallied for a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday. Nick Martin Jersey . Poti played in 824 regular NHL games with four teams in his career; the Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, New York Islanders and the Washington Capitals.MELBOURNE, Australia - When Americans Madison Keys and Madison Brengle won their first-round matches at the Australian Open, Keys was asked at a news conference if she knew anyone else with the unusual name Madison.I think its actually a pretty popular name for younger people, the 19-year-old Keys said, causing some laughter in the room. Walking through grocery stores, I hear it a lot. But Madison (and I) are a few of the older ones. I think its more like 5 and 6 year olds.On Saturday, Keys and Brengle both won again to set up a meeting in the fourth round, ensuring at least one American — and one Madison — will move on to the quarterfinals.Were obviously representing our name pretty well, Keys said.With new coach Lindsay Davenport watching from the stands at Rod Laver Arena, Keys matched big-hitting Czech Petra Kvitova stroke for stroke and broke the two-time Wimbledon champions serve five times to advance with a 6-4, 7-5 win.A 5-foot-10 (1.78-meter) power hitter with good footwork and speed, Keys has an all-court game that has drawn comparisons to Davenport. Now, with Davenport and her husband Jon Leach as her coaches, she got the breakthrough win at a major that was long expected of her.Obviously this is my first time in the second week of a Grand Slam. I feel good about it, she said. But at the same time its one of those things where I want more. ... So Im not really getting ahead of myself and letting myself get too excited over this.While Keys has the celebrity coach and has been tipped as a future star, the 24-yeaar-old Brengle is more of a late bloomer.ddddddddddddA speedy counterpuncher from Dover, Delaware, Brengle has played almost exclusively on the second-tier womens pro tour. She showed enough talent as a teenager to earn a few wild cards to slams, but after the 2008 French Open she failed to qualify for another one for more than six years.Meanwhile, other young Americans such as Keys, Christina McHale and Sloane Stephens passed her by.I played Caroline (Wozniacki) a bunch in juniors and she got to No. 1 and you see that it can be done, Brengle said. But at the same time, everybody kind of progresses at their own pace so I dont think you want to compare yourself too much with other players.Brengle has finally started to string together good results in the last few months at the same time shes been dealing with a serious health concern. Two days before the U.S. Open, she discovered a strange spot on her leg and it was later diagnosed as cancerous.They found it really, really early. We took care of it, she said. I have a nice scar on my leg to show for it.Shes been applying and reapplying sunblock during every match in Australia — and continuing to win. On Saturday, she beat fellow American Coco Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-2 to set up the fourth-round match with Keys.One of them will make the quarters — the first American besides Serena Williams to do so at a major since Stephens made two in 2013.Everybody kind of pushes each other, Brengle said. Im really, really optimistic with how American womens tennis is looking.
