NEW YORK -- At first glance, the new jersey just looks plain strange.The different colors and team names probably even cause a few double-takes.When NFL players switch from teams with which they had long been associated to new destinations, either through trades or free agency, it often takes a little getting used to for fans and sometimes the players themselves.Some, however, completely embrace the wardrobe makeover.I look good in red and blue, said a smiling Damon Harrison, the New York Giants nose tackle who spent his first four NFL season in the Jets green and white.Heres a look at some other familiar faces in new places -- and colors:---RYAN CLADY, LT, JETSThe four-time Pro Bowl selection was a fixture on Denvers offensive line, but injuries limited him to just 30 games over the last three seasons. When the Broncos signed former Seattle left tackle Russell Okung in March, Clady became expendable. Denver traded him to the Jets, who were in need of a left tackle after the durable DBrickashaw Ferguson suddenly retired in April. Clady, who has recovered from the torn knee ligament that kept him out all last season, will be in charge of protecting Ryan Fitzpatricks blind side. Career stats: 98 games played, 98 starts.---MATT FORTE, RB, JETSA workhorse for eight years in Chicago, the 30-year-old running back was signed by the Jets to add a versatile element to New Yorks backfield. He dealt with a hamstring injury through the first half of training camp, but played in the Jets third preseason game and should be ready to start in Week 1. Career stats: 8,602 yards rushing, 45 TDs; 487 catches, 4,116 yards, 19 TDs.---ARIAN FOSTER, RB, DOLPHINSRetirement appeared to be an option for Foster, who has missed significant parts of two of the last three seasons with major injuries. He played seven seasons for Houston, where he set franchise marks for yards rushing and TD runs, but was released in March. Foster signed a one-year deal with Miami, where he could complement Jay Ajayi. Career stats: 6,472 yards rushing, 54 TDs; 249 catches, 2,268 yards, 14 TDs.---ROBERT GRIFFIN III, QB, BROWNSThe No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft got his career with Washington off to an eye-popping start that was capped by a playoff appearance and being selected Offensive Rookie of the Year. Injuries and inconsistency marked the rest of his tenure, eventually losing his starting job to Kirk Cousins. After being cut in March by the Redskins, Griffin will try to resurrect his career in quarterback-starved Cleveland. Career stats: 8,097 yards passing, 40 TDs, 23 INTs; 1,480 yards rushing, 8 TDs.---CHRIS IVORY, RB, JAGUARSAfter being buried on New Orleans depth chart his first three seasons, Ivory was traded to the Jets in 2013 and became one of the AFCs top backs. Known for his bruising running style and his braids flying out from under the back of his helmet, Ivory became a fan favorite and set a career best with 1,070 yards rushing last season. New York allowed him to become a free agent and Ivory will team with T.J. Yeldon to form one of the leagues top running back duos. Career stats: 4,031 yards rushing, 24 TDs; 53 catches, 382 yards, 2 TDs.---MALIK JACKSON, DL, JAGUARSA key player on Denvers Super Bowl-winning defense, Jackson was in high demand in free agency this offseason after five sacks, a safety and seven passes defensed last season. He signed a six-year, $90 million deal with Jacksonville, making him one of the NFLs highest-paid defensive linemen. Career stats: 134 total tackles, 14 sacks, 15 passes defensed, 2 forced fumbles.---LAMAR MILLER, RB, TEXANSAfter a successful four-year run in Miami that included nearly 2,000 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns the last two seasons, Miller signed with Houston for four years in March. The 25-year-old running back showed good versatility while with the Dolphins and is expected to carry much of the workload in the Texans backfield. Career stats: 2,930 yards, 19 TDs; 117 catches, 887 yards, 3 TDs.---DeMARCO MURRAY, RB, TITANSMurray went from being the NFLs rushing leader in 2014 with Dallas to becoming a frustrated and sometimes-forgotten part of Philadelphias backfield under Chip Kelly last season. The two-time Pro Bowl selection had just one 100-yard game with the Eagles, who traded him to Tennessee in March. Hell try to revive his career while teaming with rookie Derrick Henry in the Titans powerful backfield. Career stats: 5,228 yards, 34 TDs; 215 catches, 1,522 yards, 2 TDs.---JOSH NORMAN, CB, REDSKINSThe chatty, opinionated and extremely talented cornerback is coming off a career breakthrough with Carolina that was capped by a Super Bowl appearance, his first Pro Bowl selection and included an on-field back-and-forth with the Giants Odell Beckham Jr. during a game. The Panthers placed the franchise tag on him in the offseason, but then rescinded it when they couldnt come to a long-term agreement. He became an unrestricted free agent and signed a five-year, $75 million deal with Washington. Career stats: 7 INTs (2 for TDs), 181 total tackles, 37 passes defensed, 4 forced fumbles.---OLIVIER VERNON, DE, GIANTSVernon has never made a Pro Bowl, but he established himself as a promising pass rusher in four seasons with Miami, and he parlayed that into an eye-popping five-year, $85 million contract, the richest for a defensive end in NFL history at that time. Hell be expected to provide a big boost to a pass rush that has no one returning with more than two sacks last season. Career stats: 29 sacks, 196 total tackles, 3 forced fumbles.---ERIC WEDDLE, S, RAVENSThe three-time Pro Bowl pick and two-time first-team All-Pro was known for his bushy beard and ballhawking skills in nine seasons with San Diego. He was the glue of the Chargers defense and led them in tackles five times, but friction between Weddle and the team led to a bitter divorce -- and the 31-year-old safety signing a four-year deal with Baltimore. Career stats: 19 INTs (3 TDs), 850 total tackles, 6 1/2 sacks, 71 passes defensed, 5 forced fumbles.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL John Brodie Jersey . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. Dante Pettis Jersey . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season. http://www.custom49ersjersey.com/custom-dwight-clark-jersey-large-648d.html . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. Tai Streets Jersey . Louis Blues absence from top spot in the TSN. Joe Staley Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Kevin Porter and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the minors as part of a five-player roster shuffle made by the NHLs worst team. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos will be without Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib for their Sunday night showdown with the Oakland Raiders.Talib was sent for a cortisone injection in his lower back Friday and coach Gary Kubiak said he was optimistic that will help Talib return to the field soon.Talib missed Denvers 27-19 victory over San Diego last week when his back stiffened during the teams walkthrough the day before the game. He missed practice all of this week and traveled to California on Thursday for a second opinion on his back, which began bothering him two weeks ago.Bradley Roby started in his place last week and earned the AFCs defensive player of the week honors after making seven tackles, two pass breakups and a pick-6 of Philip Rivers.Roby said Sunday nights game, which pits two 6-2 teams and marks a revival of the rivalry that had faded in recent years -- along with the Raiders fortunes -- marks another opportunity for me to go out and show what I can do and help this team win.Hell team with Chris Harris Jr. to cover Michael Crabtree and, if he plays, Amari Cooper, who have accounted for 99 catches, 1,356 yards and eight touchdowns. Cooper is questionable with a back injury.We just need the young guys to continue to step up, Harris said. They dont have to do too much, just play their role. We still like our matchups, me and Robe and Doss or Kayvon, whoever plays, and so we feel like we can still cover them.Kayvon Webster (hamstring) returned to practice Friday and is questionable for the game. He got hurt after just a handful of snaps last week, and Lorenzo Doss stepped into the slot and had two big pass breakups, including a deflection on fourth-and-goal from the 2 with 2:40 remaining.Weve seen Doss, hes been around the ball forever, Harris said. I dont even worry about Doss because hes like a ball magnet. Hes just got those natural instincts that you cant coach.This is a perfect game for him to get a lot of picks. He could have had two last week, andd then just think about it: nobody would be talking about being nervous that Talibs out because the dude just had two picks last week.ddddddddddddThe equalizer to losing Talib this weekend, Harris suggested, is having pass rusher DeMarcus Ware back from a broken arm to pressure Raiders QB Derek Carr.Having D-Ware back, that kind of takes away any of the losses, having that pressure right there, Harris said. As long as we get a lot of pressure on this dude, thats what its about.Ware returned last week after a six-week absence, but said he was only about 70 percent. This week, he proclaimed himself 100 percent.The moves that I did were more speed-type moves, just bending, ripping, going around the corner, trying to get to the quarterback and not using that arm when it came to power moves, Ware said. Now, I can.The secondary digging so deep into its depth is of little concern to star pass rusher Von Miller.Im not worried about any of those guys, Miller insisted. Weve got the best secondary in the National Football League ... Its still the No Fly Zone.The Broncos also are expecting to get back inside linebacker Brandon Marshall from a pulled left hamstring that sidelined him last week.Its doing a lot better, Marshall said. Im feeling good. Im excited to be out there with my brothers again.Also back is defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who suffered a broken rib when he was plowed over by San Diego running back Melvin Gordon during Robys interception return for a touchdown.Phillips will likely coach from the booth rather than the sideline for just the second time as a coordinator. The other time came in Houston after he had his gall bladder and a kidney removed.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton ' ' '
