However, only 53 of them will be able to survive the cutdowns on August 31 and ultimately make the team. Over the course of the summer, we will take a look at the players fighting for those spots to find out who has the best chances of helping the Patriots defend their Super Bowl title.Today, the series continues with a member of New England’s wide receiver group.Name: Demaryius ThomasPosition: Wide receiverJersey number: 88Opening day age: 31Experience: 9Size: 6’3, 225 lbs.2018 review: Despite coming off his worst statistical year since 2011, Demaryius Thomas entered 2018 as a starter in the Denver Broncos’ offense — and for the first eight weeks of the season he looked the part. However, Thomas’ usage was different from years past: while he still moved between the X-receiver and the Z-receiver roles on a regular basis, he was no longer the every-situation player he had been earlier in his career.As a result, Thomas played ‘only’ 74.6% of Denver’s offensive snaps (405 of 543) between weeks one and eight — a significant number, sure, but another decline in playing time when looking at his previous seasons. Nevertheless Joejuan Williams NFL Draft , the veteran wide receiver was still productive for the Broncos as he caught 36 passes on 56 targets for 402 yards and 3 touchdowns. to a one-year deal worth $2.9 million. The contract made Thomas the second-highest paid wide receiver on the team’s roster behind only Julian Edelman.As opposed to Edelman, however, Thomas is no lock to make the team. This rings especially true considering that he spent the entire spring and the first three weeks of training camp (including two preseason games) rehabbing from his Achilles injury. While the 31-year-old was reactivated from the physically unable to perform list (PUP) earlier this week, he still needs to get up to speed — both literally and figuratively — quickly to have a shot at making the team.What should help Thomas is his experience not just in the NFL per se but when it comes to playing under Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels: he was drafted by the Broncos in the first round in 2010, after all, when McDaniels was still their head coach. Now, he needs to take advantage of his knowledge of the system in order to build chemistry with Tom Brady and carve out a role as an X/Z hybrid on a deep receiver corps.With four spots presumably already taken — Edelman, N’Keal Harry, Josh Gordon, Jakobi Meyers — there seem to be only two open ones left. Thomas will get every chance to show that he can earn one of them against main competition Phillip Dorsett and Maurice Harris, but if he fails to return to the player he was before his injury it would not be a surprise to see the team move on from him come roster cutdown day. Thousands of football fans from around the country converge at Las Vegas casinos every February to place their bets on the Super Bowl’s winner, MVP, first touchdown scorer and hundreds of other outcomes. They cheer, boo and hold their breath as they watch every moment of the game at sportsbooks, VIP parties and other gatherings.If they’re lucky Joejuan Williams Buffalo Bills Jersey , they then get in long lines to cash out.That enthusiasm is worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Las Vegas, and for the first time Sunday, it will face legal competition outside Nevada as casinos in seven more states have opened sportsbooks since the U.S. Supreme Court issued a relevant ruling in May. But the race for the betting dollars is not worrying officials or casino operators. This Super Bowl, they say, will be business as usual.Their confidence comes from the magnetism of Las Vegas: Storied casinos, superb hospitality and dining, plus a growing list of world-class entertainment options that together create the Sin City vibe that draws millions every year. Seldom do people come to this desert oasis nowadays exclusively to bet.“People come to Vegas for four-five hours around the Super Bowl, but they come for a lot more to fill the other 48 hours that they are here in town for that weekend,” said Jay Rood, who heads sports betting operations for MGM Resorts International. “I really don’t think that Vegas, or Nevada, has anything to worry about in the future. I think it’s only going to increase our customer base and probably deliver more people to our doorstep.”Tourism officials expect 306,000 people to travel to Las Vegas for Super Bowl weekend, with a projected economic impact of $426 million. The figures from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority represent a $1.4 million year-over-year increase in economic impact with about the same number of visitors.Gamblers wagered a record $158.6 million on the big game at Nevada’s nearly 200 sportsbooks last year, over $20.1 million more than in 2017. But the sportsbooks made a profit of only about $1.2 million Color Rush Joejuan Williams Jersey , as some reported six- and seven-figure losses in part because of a seemingly deep-pocketed mystery bettor.Nevada’s effective monopoly on sports betting ended last spring, when the Supreme Court struck down a federal ban on that form of gambling. Casinos in seven other states 鈥?Rhode Island, Delaware, Mississippi, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and New Mexico鈥?are accepting wagers on the game between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams. And by 2020, the list could be longer with lawmakers in two dozen states thinking about allowing sports betting.The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, which is responsible for promoting the destination, estimates that 93.5 percent of the city’s roughly 147,000 available rooms will be booked this weekend.“In addition to weather that’s better than most of the country right now, we have so many other amenities you can build out a full weekend,” said Jacqueline Peterson, the authority’s chief communications officer. “Yes, you can sit down and watch the big game and have a great time. But before and after Youth Joejuan Williams Jersey , we have the best clubs and bars and restaurants in the world. Some amazing shows are in town this weekend.”Lady Gaga, American rock band ZZ Top, George Strait and Van Morrison are among those with shows scheduled.MGM Resorts anticipates the majority of its Las Vegas Strip properties will be sold out. Rood said he has already taken several six-figure wagers and anticipated he will get three or four wagers topping $1 million each. He expects Rams supporters from nearby southern California to start showing up in Las Vegas by Friday afternoon.MGM and the Westgate Las Vegas casino-hotel had the Patriots as 2 1/2-point favorite Thursday.The Westgate Las Vegas casino-hotel expects to be at capacity, too. It will host a gathering for 1,200 of its VIP customers, a private event for over 2,000 people and a party for about 1,500 people that’s open to the public at the theater where Elvis Presley once performed. A satellite betting station will be centrally placed to allow partygoers to bet without missing much of the game.Longtime Las Vegas oddsmaker Jay Kornegay believes bettors in Nevada will set another record this year. He said some of the big bettors have made arrangements to wire money ahead of the game, with 80 to 85 percent of all the bets historically coming in the last two days before the game.“It’s an important weekend for us, and when I say us, I’m talking about the city of Las Vegas because we have to put on our best show to keep them coming back not just for next year’s game, but throughout the entire year,” said Kornegay, the Westgate’s vice president of race and sports book operations. “It’s all hands on deck throughout the entire city.”
