TORONTO -- The Rock plan to keep team captain Colin Doyle in Toronto for a few more years. Duke Riley Womens Jersey . The National Lacrosse League team signed its all-time franchise leading scorer to a three-year contract Monday that will run through 2016. The 36-year-old from Kitchener, Ont., has captured six NLL Champions Cup, all with the Rock, during his 16-year career. "Colin Doyle is the face of the Toronto Rock," said team owner and president Jamie Dawick. "Colin is a leader on and off the floor and exemplifies everything it is to be a member of this franchise." Doyle is the all-time franchise leader in goals (397), assists (585) and points (982). "There is an unsettling feeling with regards to how last year ended and I am sure everyone is excited to get back our winning ways," said Doyle -- the Rock lost to Minnesota in the division semifinals. "I am looking forward to seeing what (new head coach) John (Lovell) and his staff have in store for us. I am sure the goals remain the same, but the path to get there will certainly be different." The Rock recently made Doyle their one franchise player for the 2014 season. Teams can designate two franchise players enabling those players to earn 25 per cent more than the leagues maximum salary. The Rock have also signed veteran defender Stephen Hoar to a one-year agreement. The signings are pending league approval. Takkarist McKinley Womens Jersey . He left in the 4th inning of Saturdays game against the Tigers after experiencing tightness. Reyes and the team still hope that he will be ready for Opening Day in Tampa Bay in one week. Sean Harlow Womens Jersey . Mauer drove in two runs before leaving with an injury, Eduardo Nunez homered and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 10-2 on Tuesday night.The 2014 Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be a very different team than the 4-12 club of 2013. New coaches, a new quarterback, new stars and, to top it all off, new uniforms combine to make the new Buccaneers. Lovie Smith has replaced Greg Schiano at head coach, 2013 starting quarterback Mike Glennon will be open the season as Josh McCowns backup, Darrelle Revis is gone at cornerback and Vincent Jackson is no longer the teams lone receiving weapon. The Buccaneers used their offseason to overhaul their roster, implement a new offence under offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford and convert their base defence to Smiths Tampa 2 scheme. The Buccaneers significantly improved their offence in the offseason, bringing in McCown, who posted a 109.0 quarterback rating with 13 touchdowns and one interception with the Bears in 2013. The team also drafted receiver Mike Evans in the first round of Mays draft and selected tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the second round.  Finally, the Bucs have added benefit of running back Doug Marin, who is fully recovered from a season-ending shoulder injury suffered in Week 7 of last season. The reason for the overhaul? The Buccaneers offence posted less yards in 2013 than any other unit in the league. Only Vincent Jackson had more than 600 receiving yards, and his 78 catches were 24 more than next best tight end Timothy Wright, who was traded to the Patriots in the offseason. The Buccaneers hope the added weapons and offensive changes will lead to more balance across the receiving core. On defence, the Buccaneers ranked 20th in yards allowed and 16th in points. Smith brings with him the same defensive system he used in nine seasons with the Bears, who ranked in the top-10 in takeaways in seven of Smiths nine seasons. The Buccaneers secondary lost a superstar when the team released Revis, however the signing the Alterraun Verner will help minimize the loss. Opposite of Verner will be either second-yearr corner Johnthan Banks or veteran Mike Jenkins. Sean Harlow Falcons Jersey. At safety, the Buccaneers boast a solid duo in former first-round pick Mark Barron and 2012 All-Pro Dashon Goldson. However, the strength of the Buccaneers defence will likely be the teams front seven. On the defensive line, former first-round picks Gerald McCoy and Adrian Clayborn will join free agent signees Michael Johnson and Clinton McDonald to create an intimidating front. At linebacker, Lavonte David totaled 145 tackles last season and will line up once again beside Mason Foster, with Jonathan Casillas playing strongside linebacker. The Buccaneers may struggle to adjust with the amount of changes made throughout off-season, however, the team will surely be different than last year - and just not because of their helmets. Notes: Questions on the Line: The Buccaneers signed centre Evan Dietrich-Smith in free agency and traded for left guard Logan Mankins during training camp, however their offensive line remains questionable. Left tackle Anthony Collins was an injury replacement for the Cincinnati Bengals last season, while right tackle Demar Dotson is the lone holdover from last seasons line. At right guard, the team is currently slated to start Patrick Omameh, who has never dressed for an NFL game. He was signed by the Buccaneers off the San Francisco 49ers practice squad last season. Not Wide in Depth: Should the Buccaneers lose either Jackson or Evans to injury, the team will struggle to find a viable replacement at wide receiver. Behind the two starters, Chris Owusu and Louis Murphy hold backup spots. Owusu caught 13 passes for 114 yards in nine games with the Bucs last season, while Murphy has six receptions for 37 yards in 14 games with the New York Giants. The Bucaneers drafted Robert Herron in the sixth round of the 2014 draft, but he remains listed with the third-stringers. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
