Cheap Authentic Vikings DeMarquis Gates Jersey

EAGAN, Minn. – The Vikings have added to their linebackers group, the team announced Wednesday.

Minnesota agreed to terms with free agent Cheap DeMarquis Gates Jersey, who most recently played for the XFL’s Houston Roughnecks.

Being that the XFL’s season was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic after just five games, players from the league were allowed to sign with NFL teams. Gates’ Roughnecks ended their debut campaign as the league’s lone undefeated squad at 5-0.

Here are five things to know about the new Vikings linebacker:

  1. Making the highlight reel

Gates played a key role in the Roughnecks defense, coming up with big plays like the one below, which initially appeared to be an interception but was called a fumble recovery in the stats book. The play clinched a Houston win over Dallas.

His 32 combined tackles tied for fifth in the XFL, according to league stats. Gates also had 2.0 sacks, three quarterback hits, three tackles for loss, three passes defensed, one forced fumble, three fumble recoveries and an interception through five games.

  1. Multiple stops along the way

Gates has played for three professional football leagues.

He initially joined the Browns in 2018 as an undrafted free agent but was released. He then played for Memphis Express of the Alliance of American Football. Gates led the AAF with 52 tackles and five forced fumbles through eight games before the league folded.

In April 2019, Gates signed with the Redskins but was waived in June.

  1. Rebel before a Roughneck

Gates played at Ole Miss from 2014-17, leading the Rebels in tackles each of his final three seasons.

As a senior, he became the first Ole Miss player to record more than 100 tackles since five-time All-Pro Patrick Willis accomplished the feat in 2006.

Gates’ 70 solo tackles in 2017 topped the SEC and put him at 13th-best in FBS. His 9.5 tackles per game ranked third in the conference.

  1. Georgia native

Gates hails from Hampton, Georgia, where he attended Lovejoy High School and was named a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, 247Sports.com and ESPN.com. Rivals.com listed him as the No. 19 outside linebacker in the country despite the fact that he missed his senior season with a torn ACL.

As a junior at Lovejoy, Gates recorded 132 tackles and was named All-Region.

Other notable names who have graduated from Lovejoy include Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams and former running back Tashard Choice.

  1. One of three

Gates was raised by his aunt and uncle, Tia and Leon Dillard. He has two sisters and shared on Instagram that the trio of siblings is close.

Cheap Stitched Minnesota Vikings Jerseys China

Minnesota Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman is getting closer to his oft-stated goal of having 10 draft picks after the NFL awarded compensatory picks for this year’s draft.

The Vikings were awarded two sixth-round compensatory picks – a system that hands out 32 additional draft picks in rounds three through seven by weighing free agent losses and gains from the previous year. They will come at picks 213 and 218 overall, giving the Vikings a total of seven selections as of now.

The Vikings were one of seven teams awarded multiple compensatory picks and the only team with two of them. The Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders were awarded four picks each. The Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans were given three additional picks.

In all, 15 teams were awarded compensatory picks.

Arizona, Houston, Denver and Cincinnati were given third-round picks while Green Bay, Arizona, the New York Giants, New England and Dallas were given picks in the fourth round. Cincinnati, Dallas (two) and Green Bay (two) were given picks in the fifth round. The other 18 picks fell in the sixth and seventh rounds.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula. No club may receive more than four compensatory picks in any one year. If a club qualifies for more than four compensatory picks after offsetting each compensatory free agent (CFA) lost by each CFA gained of an equal or higher value, the four highest remaining selections will be awarded to the club.

The free agents lost that figured into the Vikings formula were Rhett Ellison, Matt Kalil, Captain Munnerlyn, Cordarrelle Patterson, Adrian Peterson and Andre Smith. The free agents the Vikings gained that figured into the formula were Case Keenum, Latavius Murray, Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers.

The Vikings were without picks in the fourth round and seventh rounds because of trades to obtain QB Sam Bradford and CB Tramaine Brock, respectively, over the last two years.

Expect Spielman to trade down at least once during the draft in an attempt to gain a couple more picks and bring the Vikings even closer to his goal of 10 picks.
