GLENDALE Ariz — Since completing his collegiate

first_imgGLENDALE, Ariz. — Since completing his collegiate career at Arizona State in 2010, Kerry Taylor has worn a lot of different NFL uniforms.The former Hamilton High star has donned the jerseys of the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings. However, Taylor hasn’t been able to suit up most Sundays.Such is the plight of the practice squad player — a role Taylor has known all too well.

I feel really comfortable with the offense and I have a good opportunity here to make things happen.”The Cardinals released their first preseason depth chart Monday, and Taylor is listed as the fourth receiver behind veterans Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Roberts and second-year pro Michael Floyd. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the 24-year-old has been sidelined the last two days with a minor hamstring injury.As far as the depth chart, Taylor isn’t all that concerned about where he is on the coaching staff’s pecking order right now.“I don’t really worry about that stuff,” he said. “I just try to come out every day and work as hard as I can. Numbers change, people are going to be here, people aren’t going to be here, so hopefully I’ll still be in the same spot when camp ends.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo One way to ensure that he’ll make the final 53-man roster is to impress in the preseason games. Head coach Bruce Arians mentioned Taylor as a player who could possibly return in time for the Cardinals’ preseason opener Friday in Green Bay against the Packers.“It’s one of those things where if it was a regular game, it might be a little different. You never know what the training staff wants you to do,” he said. “I’m just trying to get back as fast as a I can, but making smart decisions at the same time.” last_img read more

Invest in stunning visuals: high-resolution images, high-definition videos, crisp slideshows are all attention-getters.Be Interactive:Whether it’s through webcams or enabling a search for “ persons in your area,” porn sites are interactive.Do the same by incorporating interactive elements. These include adding live chat to your site for customers, allowing comments and feedback, adding social media sharing, or creating contests and giveaways.Be Simple:Most porn sites use simple, short language. Clearly, visitors aren’t there to read but you can take the same approach by using conversational, clear language on your startup’s page or even within your app.Be Navigable:Most porn sites also do a good job of categorizing content. Whatever your pleasure is, you can typically find it with just a few clicks. Easy navigation is important when designing an app or website: Don’t bury content or links and make them difficult for visitors to find.Be Responsive: Online porn probably would not be so lucrative if it took forever for the site and videos to load. These sites do a lot of back-end performance tweaking to ensure fast load times and responsiveness. Work with a back-end specialist who can help enhance the performance of your app or website.
