He makes guys laugh, he has fun with the game, which is what its all about, Andrews noted. The same thing with Baker; he did the same thing, he loves to play. So it’s awesome to see that. I think he relates to the guys really well, and he throws the ball incredibly well as well. He’s a great athlete, and he’s got all the intangibles, for sure.”

I’ve always been a team player. I’ve always put my team first before anything, Jackson said. I’m not gonna treat myself different, and I don’t want to be treated different. I just want to play football, be a Raven and play games.
Game Kids Matthew Tkachuk Jersey
If the first camp in May is any indication, Jackson is going to play, one way or another.

Lewis, a聽2006 first-round draft pick, hasn’t had more than 25 receptions in each of the last five seasons. Part of that could be due to the erratic play of Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.

The Jaguars like to run the ball (they led the NFL averaging 141.4 rushing yards per game last season), and Lewis’ blocking has been a big help there during his 12 seasons in Jacksonville.聽At 6-6, 267 pounds, Lewis is聽roughly as big as聽former Packers free-agent acquisition Martellus Bennett, who was one of the best run-blocking tight ends in the NFL.

Lewis has long been considered a good blocker, even though the Jaguars selected him out of UCLA in 2006 with the hope he could be a top receiving tight end.

Lewis started Nicklas Lidstrom Jersey all 16 games last season and caught 24 passes for 318 yards and five TDs. It was his best season since 2013, when he caught 25 passes for 359 yards and four touchdowns.

In 12 seasons, he has caught 375 passes for 4,502 yards (12.0 average) and 33 touchdowns.

Blake Bortles explains how his unlocked truck with the keys inside was nearly stolen


On Wednesday, an 18-year-old high school student named Joseph Horton was arrested after he allegedly tried to steal Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles’ pickup truck, which was parked outside a house party.

Colton comes running out and goes, ‘Hey Brandon, there’s a random kid in your house.’ So Brandon, our center who lives there, grabs the golf club… and just takes off on a full sprint back into his house. It was kinda like a scene out of like ‘Bad Boys II’… Brandon was holding the golf club kinda interrogating this kid. And not shortly after the cops showed up. The question remains: Why did Bortles leave his car unlocked with the keys inside? It’s a fair question — a point that Deadspin raised in the immediate aftermath of last week’s report.

Yes, New York’s division rivals in Philadelphia, Dallas and Washington also have teams from the NFC South and AFC South on their schedules. But the Eagles, Cowboys and Redskins are not facing the transition the Giants are managing as they aim for a return to the playoffs.

Toughest tests: Not including the Giants’ NFC East rivals, seven of the 10 non-divisional opponents on their schedule are strong playoff contenders. And the Colts, Bears and Buccaneers are not exactly push-overs. Road games at domes in Atlanta and Houston will be particularly tough.

Biggest breaks: Speaking of games in domes, New York is fortunate it does not have to travel to New Orleans. It also gets to host two tough playoff teams from the AFC South in Jacksonville and Tennessee. Chicago as New York’s intraconference matchup presents a winnable game.cardinals_006

Report: Matt Moore Jersey could wait until season starts to sign


Matt Moore remains a free agent and might not have a new home for a few months.
#32 Nike Kevin Mchale Ash NBA - Backer Boston Celtics T-Shirt
The veteran quarterback is considering waiting until after the season begins to sign anywhere, giving him time to survey the quarterback landscape to see which team needs help, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports. That means Moore is waiting for a team to have an injury at the position, which inevitably will happen.

Warriors: Kevon Looney had two key blocks off the bench in the first. … Durant notched his 20th straight postseason game with 20 or more points. … Golden State is 36-5 at home in the playoffs since the 2015 postseason. … Thompson (1,786) moved past Rick Barry (1,776) for second place on the Warriors’ career postseason scoring list. … Curry (712) moved past Barry (699) into sole possession for most postseason baskets in franchise history. … The Run TMC trio of Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin were honored with a standing ovation during a first-quarter timeout. On Monday, Richmond will introduce Hardaway as he goes into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame of which Richmond and Mullin are already members.

On Monday, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said he has seen the video and was concerned about public backlash over the officers’ conduct. He said Police Chief Alfonso Morales also had a similar reaction.

I’m going to let the release of that speak for itself, but yes, I definitely have concerns after watching that Pat Tillman Jersey video, Barrett told reporters Monday.

Morales released a Message to the Community video Tuesday, saying he will stand by officers who act right but will admit error when officers act wrong.

So if there’s ever an incident where one of our members makes a mistake, unnecessarily escalating a situation, I’m going to be honest and transparent about it, he said.

In those instances where we have made mistakes and are wrong, I’m sorry.

Game Mens Mike Williams Jersey Sources who have seen the body-camera footage told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Brown was not at all combative before officers used the stun gun.

This could be bad, a source told the Journal Sentinel of the video. The player doesn’t appear to be provocative at all.

Police have shown the footage to some local officials, including a closed session of a Common Council committee.

Brandon McCarthy Jersey keeps finding ways to beat the Phillies.


McCarthy tossed 5 2/3 sharp innings, Ozzie Albies hit his 14th homer and the Atlanta Braves beat Philadelphia 3-1 on Tuesday night.
Men's Majestic New York Mets #5 David Wright Replica Green Salute to Service MLB Jersey
Game Kansas City Chiefs Jersey Sloppy defense by the Phillies helped Atlanta get another run in the fifth.

Albies walked to start the inning. He advanced to third on Freddie Freeman’s single after right fielder Nick Williams threw to an uncovered base because third baseman Maikel Franco was shifted. Freeman went to second on the play. Nick Markakis followed with a bouncer to first baseman Carlos Santana. His throw to the plate sailed over Alfaro’s head for an error, allowing Albies to score.
Youth Paul Konerko Jersey
Cesar Hernandez’s RBI single in the bottom half cut it to 2-1. But McCarthy struck out Rhys Hoskins swinging to strand runners on second and third.

In the past, rostering relievers in fantasy who weren’t closers was limited to a few elite arms. Times are changing, though, and you should consider these talented pitchers.

The result was far from ideal, but even as shell-shocked as the Miami clubhouse might have been after the game, there was no chatter about replacing Ziegler as the go-to guy in the ninth. After all, we’re talking about a reliever who entered the game 8-for-8 in save chances. He’s built up enough closer capital with his manager to likely still get him the call the next time the game is on the line in the late innings. However, that call will ultimately Anthony Sherman Jersey turn to one and only one thing: Don Mattingly’s gut feeling when the time comes.

Generally speaking, managers will continue to show faith in a closer who has been getting the job done, even if a few shaky outings have caused the fan base to turn up the negative noise level raining down from the upper deck. As a fantasy manager, I’ve found the best way of attempting to read the tea leaves with the skipper of a struggling save man and predicting a changing of the guard lies in one particular stat: FBA.

Eagles’ Jay Ajayi Jersey being sued? Here are details about alleged incident


After the Eagles won the Super Bowl, running back Jay Ajayi retreated to Los Angeles for a few days to celebrate the momentous accomplishment.
Andre Iguodala Women's Swingman White/Pink Jersey: Nike NBA Golden State Warriors Fashion Home #9
Game Womens Jalen Mills Jersey According to a report, Ajayi might’ve celebrated a little too hard. Ajayi allegedly was charged $25,000 in damages for trashing a fancy (Los Angeles) mansion and, according to a TMZ Sports report, shoved the owner of the mansion.

Per TMZ, a rep for Ajayi denied any wrongdoing, including the alleged shoving or property damage. Per the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Ajayi聽and a friend threw at least three parties at the house and allegedly broke a table, scratched some floors and violated the no smoking rule.

In October 2011, while in college at Boise State, Ajayi was arrested for shoplifting after stealing a pair of sweatpants at a local Walmart and was later sentenced to five days in jail. He was drafted in the fifth round by the Dolphins in 2015 and became a Pro Bowler in 2016.

In seven games with Eagles, Ajayi accumulated 408 rushing yards and one touchdown on 70 carries.

New England drafted Garcia in Round 3 last year, out of Troy. His arrival with the Jets gives them some depth for their offensive line, which they need.聽

The Jets’ starting tackles likely will continue to be聽 Kelvin Beachum on the left side and聽 Brandon Shell on the right side. But Garcia could push Ben Ijalana and/or Brent Qvale for a second-string role during spring practices and training camp.聽

Garcia, 24, has yet to play in an NFL game. In early August last year, Kelly Hrudey Youth jersey he left a training camp practice early. He wouldn’t practice or play with the Patriots again. In early September, they placed him on the non-football injury list, sidelining him for the remainder of the season.聽

As it turned out, Garcia was dealing with blood clots in his lungs that caused him to lose about 40 pounds. He spent the offseason working his way back from that.聽

Bucs to induct Tony Dungy into Ring of Honor on Sept. 24


Tony Dungy, the Hall of Fame coach who guided the Bucs to four playoff appearances in five years to set up the team’s lone Super Bowl championship, will be inducted into the team’s Ring Of Honor this fall.

Just like General Manager Chris Ballard and the scouting staff observed on film, the Colts this weekend are seeing some of the same traits that lead them to believe Turay can be a defensive presence sooner than later. Turay through two days of the three-day camp has displayed an impressive first step off the line of scrimmage, seemingly making a nice transition to lining up in a three-point stance after playing most in a two-point stance at Rutgers.

As an offensive coach and a former quarterback, you’d think you have a little bit of an eye for guys who can come off the edge, coach Frank Reich said.

Having traded their first- and second-round picks in the deals for Deshaun Watson and Brock Osweiler, the Texans didn’t have as difficult of a time getting their class signed.

Judge’s 11th homer of the season — a long, two-run shot over the left-field wall — highlighted the Yankees’ four-run fifth. RBI singles from Neil Walker and Miguel Andujar tied the game. Gleyber Torres, who struck out three times, recorded his third swinging whiff to end the inning.

German’s afternoon started the same way his last outing went. After throwing six no-hit innings in his first career big-league start, German didn’t give up a hit until Mark Canha singled with one out in the third.

German got blown up in the fourth — though he didn’t exactly get help from the plate ump. Khris David knocked his second home run in as many days, tearing a three-run shot to put the A’s up, 3-1, with one out.

Former Colts LB Edwin Jackson Jersey posthumously awarded college degree at Georgia Southern


On Saturday at Georgia Southern, a touching scene unfolded when the university posthumously awarded a college degree to the late Edwin Jackson.
Nike Orleans Darkwa Women's Olive/Camo Limited Jersey: #26 NFL New York Giants 2017 Salute To Service
Jackson is the former college linebacker who turned pro with the Indianapolis Colts who was tragically killed, along with his Uber driver, in a hit-and-run incident last year. A drunk driver hit both men while they were outside their vehicle on the side of the road on an Indiana highway in the middle of the night.

Georgia Southern Football shared an incredibly moving two-minute video on Saturday of Mary and Wesley Jackson, Edwin’s parents, receiving his posthumous degree.
Limited Womens Andre Johnson Jersey
Wilson, 29, has two years left on a deal that will carry cap charges of $23.7 million in 2018 and $25.2 million in 2019. After that, the Seahawks could franchise him in 2020 and 2021 for numbers slightly north of Ryan’s $30 million per-year average before the cost to franchise him a third time jumps to a staggering, prohibitive number, setting him on a course to hit free agency at 33 years old.

The quarterback of choice, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, did not become clear until the final hours. Early in the pre-Draft process, it was reported that Penn State running back Saquon Barkley was ‘firmly in the mix’ to be the No. 1 overall pick.

As it turns out, that was never an option.

Mayfield was far ahead of everybody. They were taking a quarterback at No. They weren’t taking a running back there, MMQB’s Peter King said on ‘The Dan Patrick Show.’

Limited Womens Zaza Pachulia Jersey They’ve been fooling around at quarterback for too long. The last time the Cleveland Browns took a quarterback in the top 20 Authentic Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey was 1999. They’ve been farting around with the quarterback too long. They had a conviction. I think the top four scouting people in their organization independently said that ‘we think Mayfield is the best guy.’ After that was decided, I don’t think there was ever a question who they were going to take.

Austin Corbett has filled big shoes at left tackle before; could he do it for the Browns?

Les Snead: We want Brandin Cooks Jersey around for a long time


The Rams traded for a wide receiver in 2017, but Sammy Watkins’ stay with the team was a brief one as he left for the Chiefs as a free agent in March.
Nike Steven Matz Royal Blue Backer Jersey - #32 MLB New York Mets Long Sleeve T-Shirt
General Manager Les Snead said Thursday that the team hopes to avoid a repeat with the wide receiver they acquired in a trade this year. Brandin Cooks is in the final year of his deal and Snead told Adam Schein of Mad Dog Sports Radio that talks about a new one have started.

The commission whiffed. By any reasonable measure, Mark Emmert has not had a successful tenure as NCAA president. He has presided over unprecedented scandal and has largely failed to move the NCAA and its membership to address their most important and glaring issues. When the FBI investigation and federal criminal charges became public this past September, Emmert could no longer ignore the contradictions and hypocrisy over which he presided.

In an ordinary situation, that would be odd. But with Hackenberg languishing on the bench to the point where some wonder whether he’ll ever play for the Jets or anyone, Hackenberg has every reason to do whatever he has to do to improve, because whatever he’s done to this point isn’t working.

Authentic Womens J.T. Thomas Jersey A second-round pick in 2016, Hackenberg has yet to make a regular-season appearance. With four quarterbacks currently on the roster (Hackenberg, Teddy Bridgewater, Josh McCown, Sam Darnold), chances are that either Hackenberg or Bridgewater won’t be when the 2018 Cameron Artis-Payne Jersey regular season begins.

The initial version of this article said the Jets didn’t know Hackenberg was changing his motion. Apparently, the Jets did. Bowles didn’t. Which is odd, but which also demonstrates the relative irrelevance of Hackenberg at this point.

If the commission believes players should have a direct path to the NBA without any barrier, it is perfectly acceptable to recommend that the NBA and NBPA allow 18-year-old high school players to enter the draft.

However, to imply or state that the elimination of one-and-done players will limit corruption in college basketball ignores more than 100 years of NCAA history and is factually inaccurate.

Panthers signing running back C.J. Anderson Jersey


The Panthers had a vacancy for a traditional running back after not finding one in the draft, so they found a 1,000-yard rusher.
Majestic Francisco Cervelli Replica Youth Jersey - MLB Pittsburgh Pirates #29 Green Salute to Service
A league source tells PFT that the Panthers have signed veteran running back C.J. Anderson.

Oakland might be able to recoup a comp pick if they let Bryant leave, but that’s only if they mostly sit out free agency, which might not be the case. It’s difficult to believe that the Steelers had multiple teams willing to offer this much for one year of a player who has more often been frustrating and unavailable than on the field and productive.

After nailing the draft over multiple picks last year, the Saints suddenly made the bizarre decision that they wanted to trade away a bunch of selections to go after one pass-rusher. It’s reasonable to want Marcus Davenport, but by the Stuart chart, Sean Payton sent something close to the first overall pick in terms of draft capital to acquire an edge rusher to play alongside Cameron Jordan in 2018. If the Saints disappoint this season — something that can Tyler Johnson Youth jersey happen unexpectedly with a 39-year-old quarterback — this could be an even larger boondoggle.

Authentic Womens Vernon Davis Jersey It’s double-dipping, getting paid by the defendant and getting an additional 10 percent by each client you sign up, Franklin said. I’ve never seen anything like this.
Authentic Womens Pat McAfee Jersey
Seeger backed off, writing Franklin: Although we absolutely reject your suggestions and assumptions of anything inappropriate, we will not be executing a retainer with your client.

Relations between Seeger and the plaintiffs he’s leading have deteriorated sharply over the past year.

One turning point came last October, when Seeger infuriated many of the leading attorneys in the concussion case by recommending the settlement pay his firm $70.4 million of the $108 million available for legal fees. And as payouts to former players and families have bogged down, Seeger has outraged some plaintiffs by echoing the NFL’s assurances that the program is actually working well.

Which of your preseason predictions are you kicking yourself for making?


Schoenfield: I didn’t expect the Orioles to be a .500 team, but their abysmal start and tough division means they could be headed for 100 losses. This is a bad, bad team, which we should have realized when they still had Chris Tillman in the rotation. Free Manny Machado.

Doolittle: It’s not like I thought the Reds would contend, but I am shocked they are ’62 Mets-level awful. Eugenio Suarez is tied for the team lead in WAR and he hasn’t played since April 8. The closer, Raisel Iglesias, is dynamic, and as Cincinnati tries to sort through this mess, hopefully he can be moved to a team that can leverage his talents. Then again, you have to wonder at this point just how likely it would be for the Reds to successfully develop the prospects he’d bring back. A strong rookie run by Nick Senzel is about the best thing you can hope for at this point if you’re a Reds fan.

There would be no yelling, no need for brute force this time around. Shortly after taking the job, he gathered everyone connected to the program — hundreds of personnel, including coaches, graduate assistants, academic counselors, trainers and more — and went line by line through a nearly 80-page binder, detailing the expectations of everyone in the organization. It was an eye-opening experience to those who sometimes felt adrift under the previous leadership of Jim McElwain and Will Muschamp before him. The meeting was long, clocking in at roughly two hours, but it had a clear sense of purpose.

This was memorable for the inevitability of it all. The Capitals entered the game 4-10 in in franchise history in Game 7s, and the Penguins made it 4-11 with a 2-0 shutout by Marc-Andre Fleury in Washington. It didn’t matter that the Capitals had rallied from a 3-1 series hole. Once it reached Game 7, it was just a matter of how it was going to go down this time, considering that Washington had also never defeated Pittsburgh in a Game 7. As Capitals GM Brian MacLellan said after the game, you could just feel the tension and sense of doom in the arena.
There was perhaps no greater example of the Penguins occupying the Capitals’ headspace than when owner Ted Leonsis commissioned a computer program for the 2009 semifinals that prevented fans from Penguins-centric area codes to purchase tickets online.
