Even in his 20th NFL season and 18th as the opening-day starter at quarterback for the New England Patriots James Conner Jersey White , Tom Brady is still awed by the responsibility he bears."I think it's a great privilege when a team trusts you to be the quarterback and they put the ball in your hands," Brady said Wednesday. "It's a great show of trust that they have in you, and I think you have to earn it every day. With that trust comes a lot of responsibility, and that's a big responsibility I take with me."Brady will begin another quest to make NFL history Sunday night at home when the Super Bowl champions entertain the Pittsburgh Steelers in the regular-season opener. If Brady starts all 16 games for the Patriots this year, he would be the first NFL quarterback to do so at 42 years of age."I love being available to the team," he said. "That's been something I feel like is a very important part of my job. I can't help the team if I'm not out there, and I work pretty hard to make sure I am. So many great players have played this game, and to still be doing it is something I treasure."In an expansive news conference at Gillette Stadium, Brady touched upon several nostalgic topics, including his transition from a young player learning the ropes to the veteran that guided younger players in a similar manner."I was a young player once Womens Jerome Bettis Jersey , too, and I had a lot of older players that I worked with," he said. "I had some great mentors, people that really taught me how to play the position. It was great at a young age to have John Friesz and Drew (Bledsoe), and then to have Damon Huard, and Vinny (Testaverde) and to have Doug (Flutie). And then all of a sudden it flipped, and it went from Matt Cassel to Brian (Hoyer) to Jimmy (Garoppolo) . I played with so many great guys over the years."He also said he knows the past will have no bearing upon the outcome of his meeting with the Steelers, against whom he is 11-3, including three playoff wins. But the last matchup was a 17-10 New England loss at Heinz Field on Dec. 16."We've had a great rivalry against those guys and have played a lot of meaningful games," Brady said. "We played at their stadium quite a bit the last few years Jerome Bettis Jersey , so it's good to get them here."There have been significant changes in the offense Brady will command Sunday. In addition to the retirement of star tight end Rob Gronkowski, Brady will have two new starters along the offensive line in left tackle Isaiah Wynn and center Ted Karras, replacing free-agency departure Trent Brown and the injured David Andrews, respectively.The Patriots have also rebuilt the receiving corps, but Brady has had minimal preseason practice time with Josh Gordon, recently reinstated from a suspension, and Demaryius Thomas, recovering from an Achilles tendon injury. Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman also missed most of training camp with a broken thumb."It's a challenging thing, and that's why it's not always as fluid as you would hope it to be," Brady said. "We're going to try to work as hard as we can James Conner Jersey , as we always do. I don't think this team ever feels like we're a finished product. I don't think we finish many practices and coach Belichick says, 'Man, we got this all figured out.'" We take a look at the scouting reports written about the Steelers last two picks of the draft earlier in the offseason"With their final two selections of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers added Akron linebacker Ulysees Gilbert III and LSU offensive lineman Derwin Gray, two players who may have a better chance of make the final roster than their draft position would suggest.When reading the scouting reports written about them ahead of the draft, the experts appear to see two players who could yet become solid contributors at the NFL level if they can improve the noted deficiencies in their game. And while a strong training camp in Latrobe could possibly see them on the 53-man roster come opening day, the practice squad is their more likely destination. Ulysees Gilbert III, AkronLance Zierlein, NFL.com: Matt Miller, Bleacher Report:Tony Pauline https://www.thesteelerslockerroom.com/authentic-terrell-edmunds-jersey , Draft Analyst:Pos: Slightly undersized run-and-chase linebacker who makes a lot of plays on the ball. Athletic and covers a lot of area on the field. Gets depth on pass drops and shows sideline-to-sideline speed. Breaks down well, uses his hands very effectively and makes a lot of plays in space. Stays with coverage assignments, displays solid ball skills and plays to his 40 time. Forceful on the blitz, displays outstanding skill in pursuit and wraps up tackling.Neg: Struggles to get off blocks and gets easily slowed through the trash. More of a drag-down tackler.Analysis: Gilbert is not a big or stout linebacker, but he’s a pursuit defender with next-level athleticism. He was terrific during Shrine Game practices and turned in a dominant pro-day workout, and he has positioned himself as a potential late-round choice.Video highlights:Derwin Gray, OL, MarylandLance Zierlein, NFL.com: Matt Miller, Bleacher Report:Tony Pauline Womens Terrell Edmunds Jersey , Draft Analyst:Pos: Large, surprisingly athletic tackle with good lateral blocking range. Quickly gets off the snap and keeps his feet moving and his hands active. and makes good use of angles. Displays footwork off the edge, jolts defenders with explosive hand punch and rides rushers from their angles of attack. Quick, strong and takes defenders from the action on running downs. Very explosive and works to finish blocks.Neg: Lined up at left tackle but may lack the footwork to stay there at the next level. Must learn to finish blocks. Overcommits and gets beaten by inside moves.Analysis: Gray was a solid college lineman who showed consistent progress in his game. He possesses the size and strength to develop into a starting right tackle at the next level if properly coached.Video highlights:
