 as their player representative Youth Adam Thielen Jersey , the veteran cornerback believes a lockout is coming when the NFL collective bargaining agreement expires."It's going to happen, so it's not like guys are guessing," Sherman said before the 49ers' workout Thursday.The current CBA between players and NFL owners doesn't expire until after the 2020 season, but there have been rumblings that players might dig in their heels in order to get certain economic changes, including more guaranteed money in contracts.Owners locked out the players for four months during the 2011 offseason, but the sides eventually hammered out a 10-year deal before the regular season was jeopardized.Sherman said he's expecting a lockout this time around "because there was a lockout before. We don't plan on changing anything about the deal we currently have right now ... I don't think it's going to be negotiated before the end of the CBA."That issue is for down the road. For now, the three-time All-Pro cornerback eagerly awaits his 49ers debut Sunday at Minnesota. After being released by Seattle in March, Sherman, 30, signed a three-year deal with San Francisco.He appears fully recovered from a ruptured right Achilles tendon that ended his 2017 season in November. But Sunday's game offers Sherman his first true test to prove he's still the same shutdown defender he was before the injury. And the opener comes against a Vikings team that expects big things offensively after signing quarterback Kirk Cousins in the offseason.So far, Sherman has drawn rave reviews for the leadership role he's taken with a young 49ers defense."It's inspiring just to play across from a guy like that that's played at a high level," cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon said. "I've always looked up to him, always thought highly of him. To be able to pick his brain just inspires me to take my game to the next level."Asked if this week of preparation feels different given his new surroundings, Sherman replied:"I got my Kobe cleats."Nike has a line of football cleats endorsed by former Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, a friend of Sherman's who offered the cornerback advice on how to rehab from an Achilles injury, since Bryant experienced the same setback.Sherman said he'll feel butterflies when he takes the field for his 49ers debut, but he said it won't be so different from his previous seven years with the Seahawks."(There's) always that rookie inside me. I don't think it changes from your first year to your eighth year http://www.thevikingsfootballauthentic.com/matt-wile-jersey-authentic ," he said. "I think you always go into it knowing you're gonna have a chance to do something special and you're excited about the possibilities."NOTES: Weakside linebacker Malcolm Smith (hamstring) participated in Thursday's practice and is expected to be ready Sunday, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said. ... Saleh also said that rookie Fred Warner will start at middle linebacker.Kirk Cousins and Adam Thielen are setting NFL records The 2018 Minnesota Vikings offense has quickly become one of the best passing offenses in the NFL, and if they keep it up they’ll start drawing comparisons to the 1998 offense, at least in terms of throwing the ball. I posted this tweet from Eric in the SMR, but I think it’s worth showing again, just to see how impressive the start to this season has been for Kirk Cousins, Adam Thielen, and Stefon Diggs:On Sunday, Thielen and Cousins set a couple records, and they’re unique ones in NFL history. First up, Thielen:I can’t get over what an incredible statistic that is. Why? Let’s do a little background. Starting in the 1980’s, the NFL really shifted the rules to open up the passing game, and the best wide receivers to ever play the game have mostly come from this modern era where passing is the norm—Jerry Rice, Randy Moss, Cris Carter, Marvin Harrison, Terrell Owens Youth Stefon Diggs Jersey , to just name a few.Coming into the season, Thielen was considered one of the better wide receivers in the league, but it was genreally thought Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham, Jr., Michael Thomas, and DeAndre Hopkins were better. Heck, you could even make an argument (and you still can) that Thielen wasn’t even the best WR on the Vikings, because Stefon Diggs is every bit as capable as any of the other aforementioned contemporaries.And none of them were able to accomplish what Thielen did on Sunday, with his fifth straight 100+ yard receiving game. Only Adam Thielen has done that, and it’s the first time anyone has done it since 1961...which ironically was the inagural season for the Vikings.Thielen also has more receiving yards after five games than any other player in Vikings history:But Thielen wouldn’t be doing all this without Kirk Cousins. On Sunday against the Eagles, Cousins set an NFL record of his own:That’s a statistic that’s almost as incredible as Thielen’s record, especially since you can’t really hit the quarterback anymore, and passing is now the norm in the NFL. Cousins has also thrown for 400 yards twice this season. The last Vikings QB to do twice in one season was Daunte Culpepper in 2004, and the only other time that has happened in team history was in 1994, when Warren Moon did it. No QB in Vikings history has done it three times in one season, although Tommy Kramer threw for more than 400 yards four times in his career (1980 http://www.thevikingsfootballauthentic.com/riley-reiff-jersey-authentic , ‘81, ‘85 ‘86),The last Vikings QB to throw for 400 yards in a game was Brett Favre in 2010, and it’s a feat that’s only been accomplished 13 times in team history. There’s still a lot of things this team can improve on, and it makes sense that if the Vikes offense could run the ball Cousins, DIggs, and Thielen wouldn’t be off to their torrid starts. But it also stands to reason that in past years, if the Vikings couldn’t run the ball, their offense was dead in the water and the Vikings had little to no chance of winning a game, barring a couple special teams or defensive touchdowns.Although these record setting performances are a byproduct of an inability to run the ball, at least it’s nice to know that with Cousins, Diggs, and Thielen, the Vikings can still move the ball and score, and Minnesota still has a chance to win a lot of football games.And if/when they get their running game issues ironed out, this team is going to be deadly.
