ORLANDO http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/bobby-okereke-jersey , Fla. (AP) — The NFL’s new rule outlawing a player from lowering his head to initially make any sort of hit with his helmet likely will be included in replay reviews for officials.That has not been decided yet, but Commissioner Roger Goodell and competition committee chairman Rich McKay made it clear Wednesday that video reviews probably will be part of the process.“If we’re able to have replay confirm one of these fouls and also confirms a player be ejected,” Goodell said as the league meetings concluded, “I think there is more confidence among the coaches it will be called accurately.”After noting the unanimous approval of the new rule among coaches, Goodell said on-field officials felt the same way.“We think that is appropriate to do and it would be the first time we use replay for safety or in respect to any kind of foul,” Goodell added.Late Tuesday, the owners rewrote the rule on using the helmet, making it a 15-yard penalty for any player to lower his head to initiate any hit with the helmet. McKay called it “a significant change,” noting that it was a “technique too dangerous for the player doing it and the player being hit.”While the offender could be disqualified http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonline...jawaan-taylor-jersey , owners did not call for an automatic ejection on such a play — at least not yet. In college football, when a player is penalized for targeting and a replay review affirms it, he is ejected.Including replay will be discussed and very possibly implemented at the NFL’s May meetings in Atlanta, where another full agenda will include discussions of changes to the league’s national anthem policy; the potential sale of the Carolina Panthers; and awarding the 2019 and 2020 drafts to two of the five finalist cities.Before then, Goodell stressed that the workings of the new helmet use rule will be made clear to the players.“Our intent is to go to each team with tape and all the analysis work done (by the football operations, technology and medical staffs) and be able to present it to them,” Goodell said. “We can take the head out, and we do want to make sure certain techniques are not used in our game.”Like the coaches, the owners were emphatically behind the change.“We’ve done so much research and investigation on what creates the real concussive plays in the NFL http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonline...er-minshew-ii-jersey ,” Eagles owner Jeff Lurie said, “and it became obvious that so many of the plays are through the lowering of the helmet and using the helmet as a weapon. I thought this (rule) was very important.”Earlier, owners passed two more rules changes.Most noteworthy, the league eliminated the requirement that a team that scores a winning touchdown at the end of regulation kick the extra point or go for a 2-point conversion.In a January playoff game that Minnesota memorably won on a final pass play, New Orleans players were required to return to the field after leaving for a meaningless extra point. The Vikings took a knee.Of course, bettors and fantasy players could have a stake in the PAT, but neither participating team did, particularly now that points scored or points differential is so low in any tiebreaking procedures.The owners also approved closing an overtime loophole that could have been embarrassing had it ever occurred.Now, if the team that gets the ball first scores a field goal http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/...ell-henderson-jersey , then the opponent loses possession by an interception or fumble on its first series, the down will be permitted to run to its conclusion, including awarding points scored by either team during the down.Previously, the turnover ended the game regardless — even though the team getting the takeaway conceivably could itself turn over the ball on that play and see it returned for a score by the opponent.Got it? PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Nick Foles will lead the Philadelphia Eagles into the playoffs.Coach Doug Pederson said Foles is “feeling good” after suffering a chest injury and will start when the Eagles (9-7) face the Bears (12-4) in an NFC wild-card game next Sunday.“We’ll take care of him and make sure he’s ready,” Pederson said Monday.Pederson said Nate Sudfeld is the backup as of right now and couldn’t provide an update on Carson Wentz’s back injury. He wouldn’t commit to starting Foles if the Eagles advance.“There is no guarantee we’re going to win this game,” Pederson said. “I’ll evaluate next Monday.”The Eagles earned a playoff berth with a 24-0 win at Washington coupled with Chicago’s victory at Minnesota.Foles is 6-0 in must-win games filling in for Wentz the past two seasons, including 3-0 in the playoffs and earned Super Bowl MVP honors in a 41-33 victory over New England.He tied an NFL record by completing 25 consecutive passes in the win against the Redskins and has been outstanding in three starts since Wentz was sidelined. Sudfeld relieved Foles and tossed a touchdown pass on his only throw.The Eagles will have off Tuesday and a walk-through practice Wednesday so Foles has more time to prepare for the Bears.Foles stepped in last season after Wentz tore two knee ligaments in December and led Philadelphia to its first NFL title since 1960.The Eagles have a far more difficult path this time as they try to become the third No. 6 seed to win a Super Bowl, joining the 2005 Steelers and 2010 Packers.“Last year we had luxury of having a bye and playing at home for two games,” Pederson said. “We understand that we’re on the road. But having guys that have been through it http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/irv-smith-jr.-jersey , I think the heightened sense of awareness, the urgency, the sort of do-or-die, backs-against-the-wall mentality, those are all things we can definitely draw from last year’s postseason run now into this game.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Kevin Love returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ lineup on Friday after missing 50 games following surgery on his left foot.Love started and played the first six minutes against the Washington Wizards Daniel Jones Jersey , scoring four points. He shot 1 for 5 from the field, missing all three of his 3-point attempts. Love made two free throws and had a rebound and an assist.“There’s definitely going to be a minute restriction. It’s been a few months since I’ve been out there playing,” Love said at Friday’s shootaround. “More than anything, it will be great to blow it out.”Love did not return after exiting the game midway through the first quarter.Love signed a four-year, $120 million extension with the Cavaliers in July. He played the first four games of the season, averaging 19 points and 13.5 rebounds, before undergoing surgery. The Cowboys expect to have DeMarcus Lawrence signed to a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline. They hope to have Randy Gregory reinstated from an indefinite suspension before the start of the season.Nothing Ed Oliver Jersey , though, is guaranteed.So the Cowboys pulled the trigger on a trade for Robert Quinn, giving up a sixth-round pick in 2020 to Miami.“Obviously, defensive line with our challenges we’ve had with Randy — I think Randy is back on it and really doing a great job of getting himself in a position where hopefully he can get back at some point and help us out — but with that unknown being there, and of course, having the same situation with David Irving,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the team website. “We http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-cody-ford-jersey , of course, don’t have DeMarcus Lawrence signed yet either. We really felt like we needed to shore that up. DLaw, of course, comes off that left spot, and the right end spot having a question mark is a big deal to us.“Certainly, Robert probably has a few more skins than Randy. He’s been in the league quite a bit longer. But it’s real important as we all know to get pressure on the passer. Really felt like he fit our system. We were fortunate the Dolphins are moving to a 3-4 scheme down there, which really doesn’t fit what Robert does. It just so happened there was a good opportunity there. I think he really fits Rod [Marinelli] and what he’s all about. I think Randy really felt it’d be a good way for him — he wanted to play under a one-year deal — to get with Rod and felt like he could really flourish at the right end spot in our scheme.” Jones Devin Singletary Jersey , who said earlier this week the Cowboys were at an impasse with Lawrence, said the acquisition of Quinn does not affect their negotiations with Lawrence. “No, we’re motivated to get this deal done with DeMarcus Lawrence,” Jones said. “He’s obviously a guy who’s been here, home-grown, who plays the game the way we like to see the game played. Obviously, he’s learned under Rod Kyler Murray Jersey , and he plays the way Rod would like to see a defensive lineman play. He’ll come off that left side, and Robert Quinn coming off the right with Randy, and mixing a few of them down inside, is nothing but a positive for us.”

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (13-5)UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: OLB Dee Ford (franchise tag) http://www.miamidolphinsteamonline.com/michael-deiter-jersey , OLB Justin Houston, DT Allen Bailey, TE Demetrius Harris, FB Anthony Sherman, RB Spencer Ware, CB Orlando Scandrick, C Mitch Morse, OG Jordan Devey, WR De’Anthony Thomas Garrett Bradbury Jersey , OG Jeff Allen, OLB Frank Zombo, RB Charcandrick West, WR Chris Conley, CB Steven Nelson, WR Kelvin Benjamin, FS Ron Parker.RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: SS Jordan Lucas, OLB Terrance Smith.NEEDS: Priority for Chiefs is fixing one of NFL’s worst defenses, especially with new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s switch from 3-4 to 4-3 system. Ford was franchised but club is trying to work out a long-term deal while listening to trade offers. Houston was released to create $14 million in salary cap space with two years left on his deal. Nelson could return but help is still needed at LB and in porous secondary Noah Fant Jersey , which was shredded by Tom Brady in overtime of AFC title game loss. At least newcomer S Tyrann Mathieu, who agreed to sign contract, will help.AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $18 million, but Chiefs could use some to extend WR Tyreek Hill and DT Chris Jones this offseason while being mindful QB Patrick Mahomes could be looking at extension next offseason. It’s not very often a trade featuring a Pro Bowl caliber talent can be seen as a win for everyone involved, but that may just be what happened Monday. The Dallas Cowboys traded a 1st round pick to the Oakland Raiders for 24-year-old wide receiver Amari Cooper and there appears to be no consensus of the clear victor of the trade. Could that mean it’s a win for everyone? Hear this out…Case for the CowboysThe Cowboys rank 29th in the NFL in pass yards per game (183) and are tied for 25th with only eight passing touchdowns. Their leading receiver, Cole Beasley, has just 350 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Beasley’s career-high for TDs in a season is five (twice– 2015 & 2016). Contrastingly, their rush attack is ranked 3rd in the league in YPG (136.9) led by one of the most talented backs in the game, Ezekiel Elliott http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/trysten-hill-jersey-cheap , and one of the league’s best offensive lines. They needed help in the receiving corp and in Cooper they are getting just that. Although his numbers have decreased in his fourth season, Cooper remains an explosive target on every snap. During his first three years– the first two of which Cooper was selected to the Pro Bowl– Cooper’s lowest TD total was five and last season he had a career-high seven. This year, Cooper has only one TD and 280 yards, but he’s also on pace to finish well-below his career mark for targets (he finished with 130+ his first two seasons and just 96 last season. Currently, he’s on pace for only 85 this season). Seeing the talent still remaining in the tank, Colin Cowherd and Skip Bayless are thrilled with ‘America’s team’ going out on a limb to drop a prospective first-rounder for a tangible option.Case for the RaidersJon Gruden refuses to admit Oakland is tanking, but in essence, they have every reason not to want to win right now. After dealing both of their once top dogs **cough, cough Khalil Mack** Drew Lock Jersey , the Black Hole now controls three first round picks in this year’s draft and no lingering contracts that are going to require massive paydays during the offseason. As evident through the numbers, Cooper was not fitting into the new offensive scheme Gruden has established and picking up a first rounder after initial bidding started with a fourth rounder is a steal. As Nick Wright points out, sometimes the best way to improve in pro sports is ripping the foundation apart and starting from scratch. As the franchise prepares to quite literally rip apart its foundation and move to Las Vegas, doing the same thing with the roster seems like the plausible next move.Case for Amari CooperThe former 4th-overall pick is clearly in need for a career-rejuvenating move and where better to do it than Jerry World? Elliott’s presence in the run game alleviates the attention Cooper would garner outside in a way he’s never had before and having the opportunity to regain the notion of the top receiver in the corp could go a long way in terms of confidence. He has shown his ability to still be a reliable target (boasting a 70.97 catch percentage compared to last year’s 50), but he has not been given the same chances. If he stays healthy, this change of scenery could be just what he needs to return to Pro Bowl status and get the fans trading in their old No. 88 jerseys for No. 89 in Dallas.So who won and who lost the trade? You’ll have to wait a couple seasons to find out. In the meantime, better start counting how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop.

WESTFIELD Johnathan Abram Jersey , Ind. — The Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens traded punches Saturday.First-year Colts coach Frank Reich jabbed back quickly after fists flew, a helmet was tossed and the two sidelines emptied onto the field, first to help defend teammates and then to restore order.Perhaps one or two scuffles could have been expected from two franchises that celebrated championships in Baltimore, especially given so many players are fighting for jobs. But the responses left the coaches in opposite corners.“We’re football players. We’re professional football players. We’re not fighters. This is not the MMA, we’re not in a cage, so that’s unacceptable,” Reich said from the end zone of one of the fields at training camp. “We’ve got little kids up in the stands. We’re role models. That’s not what we’re looking for. We want to find ways to execute football plays and win games. So I was very disappointed in that, and it led to a sloppy practice, at least on offense from what I saw.”Make no mistake about Reich’s expectations.He wants the Colts to be physical and protect their teammates by bailing them out of trouble, not creating more problems. But he also understands Indy’s margin for error is small, so it can’t afford missteps and must keep its emotions in check.Off to the side of a second field, Ravens coach John Harbaugh seemed to scoff at the notion that the melee was any big deal.“You know, it cracks me up,” said Harbaugh, the brother of former Colts quarterback and current Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh. “Is this a healthy obsession we all have with fights at joint practices? It’s really, it’s nothing. It’s much ado about nothing. It got broken up pretty quickly.”Clearly Maxx Crosby Jersey , this practice was more intense than Friday’s workout, held on a damp field that became even softer as heavy rain arrived while the two teams were working out.It showed.Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton, a four-time Pro Bowler, left practice early after spraining his left shoulder. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the sideline with ice on his shoulder.K.J. Brent, vying to become Indy’s fourth receiver, didn’t finish either. He remained on the ground for several minutes after appearing to land awkwardly while taking a hard hit. Reich said Brent hurt his right knee and was uncertain about the severity.Both injuries occurred before the punt return that led to the biggest skirmish, which prompted complaints from fans watching the Colts’ final camp practice.131<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2017Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports | Aaron DosterTwenty minutes later, it happened all over again as rookie receiver Reece Fountain and Ravens cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste were locked in a hand-to-hand battle. A couple of punches appeared to be thrown, though none landed.The teams meet on Monday night in a preseason game.Afterward, players brushed aside any notion of the play being out of bounds and instead embraced the concept of working against other teams.“It’s kind of cool to go against different styles. It gives our receivers, it gives me a different look,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said. “We’ve been in camp a really long time. I think I can say this breaks up camp a little bit.”Colts quarterback Andrew Luck even suggested the last two practices rekindled some of his old childhood memories.“Thanks for letting us tear it (the field) up,” Luck said, thanking the grounds crew in this northern Indianapolis suburb. “It’s like playing pee-wee football in the mud and muck over here, so thanks.”But Reich’s message could have been uttered by any Pop Warner coach.And he certainly hopes the Colts have learned a crucial lesson.“There’s no place for that (punches), there’s just no place for that Foster Moreau Jersey ,” Reich said. “It’s bush league, it’s undisciplined. Teams that do that and players that do that lose. In the long run, players and teams that do that lose, and that’s not the kind of team we want to be.” ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons must prepare for two quarterbacks as they await Sunday’s visit from the Baltimore Ravens.Of the two, rookie Lamar Jackson is the hot topic of the week in the Falcons’ locker room.The Falcons, who face Carolina and Cam Newton in the NFC South twice each season, have prepared for other mobile quarterbacks. Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett says Jackson belongs in a different category.“I don’t feel there’s a comparison to what we’ve seen in terms of the level of athlete that he is,” Jarrett said. “He’s a guy who can play anywhere, at any position, on the offensive side of the ball. I don’t think there’s a comparison to anybody in the league to what he can do athletically at the position of quarterback.”While the Ravens await the return of longtime starter Joe Flacco from a right hip injury, Jackson has boosted the team’s playoff hopes. The former Louisville standout and 2016 Heisman Trophy winner has led Baltimore (6-5) to back-to-back wins over Cincinnati and Oakland. Jackson suddenly is the team’s second-leading rusher after leading the Ravens to more than 400 total yards in each of the two straight wins.Even coach John Harbaugh is stunned by the impact of Jackson’s unusual speed in games.“We all are sports fans, and ‘speed kills’ is what they say in any sport, really, so it’s fun to watch,” Harbaugh said. “But, I do think it’s always more impressive to see it live than it is on tape Joey Bosa Jersey , sure.”Jackson ran for 117 yards against the Bengals and 71 in last week’s 34-17 win over the Raiders .“It’s difficult to simulate, because he has such quickness and speed, like a wide receiver or a corner has, but he’s behind center,” said Falcons coach Dan Quinn.The Falcons (4-7) have seen their playoff hopes devastated by their second three-game losing streak of the season.Here are some more things to know about only the sixth meeting between the Ravens and Falcons:RUN GAME MISSINGA priority for the Falcons this week is reviving a running attack which fell flat in last week’s 31-17 loss at New Orleans . Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith combined to net 6 yards on 12 carries.Matt Ryan was sacked six times by the Saints. Quinn says he could make changes on the offensive line against the Ravens.“At the end of the day, our execution as players needs to be better,” Quinn said. “We have to do a better job within our assignments.”HAT TRICKRavens defensive end Matthew Judon had sacks on three different plays against Oakland last week, becoming the first player to pull off the feat since Brad Scioli of Indianapolis against Houston in 2002.The sequence occurred after Baltimore went up by 17 points in the fourth quarter.“You knew they were throwing, so Matt could cut it loose just a little bit more,” Harbaugh said. “Of course, you’re not planning for three sacks in a row.”Judon has 4 ½ sacks in his last three games after getting only 1 ½ in his first eight games. Now in his third season out of Grand Valley State, he’s two sacks short of matching his career high.POTENT PASS GAMEHarbaugh has respect for Ryan, who leads the NFL with 3,683 yards passing. The Falcons boast another NFL leader in Julio Jones, who leads the league with 1,305 yards receiving.“The thing that really jumps out at you is his accuracy Tony Pollard Jersey ,” Harbaugh said. “He’s an on-time, on-rhythm, accurate thrower … He knows the system inside and out, and he’s good, and their passing attack is excellent. It’s right there at the top of the league in terms of every statistical category, and he drives that.”ROOKIE RUNNERBaltimore’s bigger surprise is the emergence of undrafted rookie running back Gus Edwards, who has topped 100 yards rushing in two straight games. Jackson and Edwards have given the offense a new look — and opposing defenses new concerns.“He definitely takes pressure off of me,” Edwards said. “All defenses have to respect the read option. … He can make plays with his feet, so the defense has to respect it.”SHORT ON TURNOVERSBaltimore owns the top-ranked defense in the NFL and is allowing only 18 points per game. Perhaps the most glaring flaw in the unit is the lack of takeaways. Terrell Suggs‘ 43-yard fumble return in the fourth quarter against Oakland was only the Ravens’ eighth forced turnover of the season and first in four games.“Hopefully, this can start a run of some big plays and turnovers,” safety Eric Weddle said. “It will make our defense even better.”Baltimore has a winning record despite owning a minus-6 turnover differential. And, although the Ravens had a negative differential in each of the last two weeks, they won anyway.

BUFFALO www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic...y-williams-ii-jersey , N.Y. (AP) — A person with direct knowledge of the Buffalo Bills‘ plans confirms to The Associated Press that running back Chris Ivory has been informed he will be released by the team.The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday because the Bills have not announced their plans. ESPN.com first reported the news.Ivory had one year left on his contract and was scheduled to make a base salary of $1.5 million.The 31-year-old Ivory becomes the odd-man out after Buffalo signed veteran running back Frank Gore two weeks ago to work behind starter LeSean McCoy.Ivory had 385 yards rushing and a touchdown and added 205 yards receiving in 13 games during his first season with Buffalo last year.He’s a ninth-year player who has been relegated to mostly a backup role since having a career-high 1,070 yards and seven touchdowns with the New York Jets in 2015. PITTSBURGH (AP) — Le’Veon Bell’s patience on the football field sets him apart.In a game built on chaos, the star running back rarely hurries or makes hasty decisions.His ability to put his hand on the back of an offensive lineman while waiting for the hole to open — much like a child sticking close to a parent in a crowded store — helps him make the remarkably difficult at times look remarkably easy.His career at a crossroads partly of his own making, Bell will have to rely on that patience now more than ever after the two-time All-Pro declined to sign his one-year, $14.4 million franchise tender with the Pittsburgh Steelers by Tuesday’s deadline, making him ineligible to play for the AFC North leaders or anyone else this season.The unprecedented move sets Bell up for the potentially big-time payday he has long been searching when he becomes a free agent in the spring, provided there’s a team willing to splurge on one of the league’s more talented if mercurial players.While TV cameras set up outside the team’s practice facility on Tuesday to catch Bell if he decided to show up for work for the first time in nearly 10 months, the 26-year-old never pulled up to the gates, ending — for now — one of the more unusual labor standoffs between a team and a player in the era of free agency.Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin seemed resigned to Bell’s decision shortly before the 4 p.m. deadline Ryquell Armstead Jersey , saying simply “so be it” when asked about the possibility of Bell not returning to the team that selected him in the second round of the 2013 draft and helped mold him into one of the league’s most dynamic threats.“Even when we don’t understand it, we’re sensitive to it, so we’re not shocked when things happen from a business standpoint, no,” Tomlin said.The Steelers (6-2-1), who have won five straight to sprint to the top of the division heading into a visit to Jacksonville on Sunday, will turn to second-year back James Conner and reserves Stevan Ridley and rookie Jaylen Samuels to help shoulder the load with Bell out of the picture.Conner, third in the NFL with 771 yards rushing, remained in the concussion protocol on Tuesday after leaving last Thursday’s blowout win against Carolina but could practice as early as Wednesday.All season Tomlin stressed he was focused on the players in the locker room and not the ones outside it. He hardly seemed bothered by the idea of Pittsburgh’s quest for a postseason berth continuing without Bell.“That train has left the station www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic...er-minshew-ii-jersey ,” Tomlin said. “We’re comfortable with how we function, the people at our disposal, the division of labor and our ability to ready ourselves for the challenges.”The Steelers drafted Bell with the 48th overall pick five years ago, won over by his youth, size and versatility. Along with wide receiver Antonio Brown, Bell became the linchpin in which the Steelers rebuilt themselves on the fly as the franchise’s identity shifted from away from the defense that fueled three Super Bowl appearances in six years from 2005-2010 toward an offense that ranked among the most explosive in the league.The makeover relied heavily on Bell, whose patient running style became his trademark while helping Pittsburgh to four straight playoff berths.Bell is one of only three players in recent NFL history to be franchise tagged in consecutive seasons. The first two — linebacker Karlos Dansby and quarterback Kirk Cousins — played all 16 games during their second seasons under the tag then went and cashed in elsewhere in free agency.As his profile rose, Bell insisted he wasn’t merely a running back, pointing to his success as a receiver — he finished 10th in the league with 85 catches in 2017 — as proof that he should be paid far above his peers.When Bell and the Steelers failed to reach an agreement on a new deal last summer Christian Wilkins Jersey , he said “both sides worked extremely hard” in an attempt to get something done. When it didn’t happen, he skipped training camp again, just as he did in 2017. His teammates stressed it was no big deal, confident Bell would show up in time for the regular-season opener.Only he didn’t. And when preparations for Pittsburgh’s Week 1 trip to Cleveland began without Bell, several Steelers — particularly the offensive line — vented their frustrations publicly.The anger eased as the weeks passed and Conner thrived in Bell’s absence while Bell remained in Florida, where encounters captured on social media found him riding a Jet Ski or hitting the club. He returned to Pittsburgh last week and even played some pickup basketball at a fitness center.It’s as close to breaking a sweat with the Steelers as Bell will get.Though the team could use the franchise or transition tag on Bell next spring, it’s more likely he’ll just walk away.

Initial reports on the condition of Buccaneers defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said he could miss five or six months if he needs neck surgery.It sounds like that’s the best-case scenario.Via Rick Stroud of the Zach Gentry Jersey , Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said they’re still trying to determine what’s happening, but he didn’t sound particularly optimistic.“No, I think that’s still ongoing and like [General Manager] Jason [Licht] said, you know, we’ve got our fingers crossed and praying for him,’’ Arians said. “It’s very unfortunate. And all we can do is pray and hope for the best and hope it’s one of those five or six month things and go from there.”Arians said he had spoken to Pierre-Paul, but didn’t offer any news about his condition. He’s being evaluated for a neck injury after a May 2 car wreck Chris Lindstrom Jersey , in which his Ferrari spun and hit a concrete wall on Interstate 95.“I don’t know what the answer is yet, if he’s going to play, if he’s not going to play,” Arians said. “We’ll just practice with the guys we have. It’s just like anybody else getting hurt, on the field or off the field. You march on.”Pierre-Paul had 12.5 sacks last year and was their one reliable source of pressure, and with defensive tackle Gerald McCoy‘s status still up in the air, the Bucs could be in for a long march on defense. Keith Mumphery was drafted by the Texans in 2015 and played for them until 2017 http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-a...-kaleb-mcgary-jersey , when he was abruptly released after news broke that he had been banned from Michigan State’s campus over an accusation of sexual assault. Mumphery has always professed his innocence, sued Michigan State, and after a lawsuit settlement revoked that ban from campus, he’s asking for another chance in the NFL.Mumphery said he knows the Texans felt, at the time, like they couldn’t have a player on their roster who had been accused of sexual assault, but he hopes that now the Texans or some other team will see things differently.“It’s all love for the Texans Kendall Sheffield Jersey ,” Mumphery told the . “I understand why they released me, it was bad PR for them at that time. They gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. I understand the NFL is a business. I appreciate the opportunity they gave me. It’s something I always dreamed of as a little kid. I thank them for the opportunity. They saw something in me. I was the first person from my hometown to go to the NFL. Now, it’s about getting a second chance.”Mumphery said he’s in good shape and ready to sign with any team that will have him.“My body is young,” Mumphery said. “I don’t drink or smoke. I eat healthy. I have a 22-year-old’s body. I’m leaner and I have more mobility. I’m hungry now. I’m a lot better physically and athletically. I’m not the same me. I’m 100 times better.Realistically, Mumphery’s chances aren’t good. He was a wide receiver averaging less than one catch per game, and now he’s been off the field for two years. But all it takes is one team to give him a chance on a 90-player roster.

Golden Tate is bringing his show to Philadelphia.The Eagles acquired the 30-year-old wide receiver nicknamed “Showtime” from the Detroit Lions for a 2019 third-round draft pick on Tuesday. Tate has 44 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns this season.He joins Alshon Jeffery Jahlani Tavai Jersey , Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews, giving Carson Wentz another target to go along with tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.“This is a guy we’ve had so much respect for,” Eagles personnel boss Howie Roseman said. “I think our fans, our team, just getting him here, seeing what he brings on the field, off the field, to the practice field Will Harris Jersey , the competitiveness, that’s what we’re looking for. It’s just going to raise the level of everyone.”Tate wrote on Twitter: “It’s been real DETROIT! I’ll love ya forever. Philly Philly let’s get it!!” He then posted a GIF of fictional Philly icon Rocky Balboa jumping up and down on the steps of the Art Museum with the caption: “Mood.”“ The Indianapolis Colts‘ defense looks primed and ready to face Carson Wentz and the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.Fresh off holding the Washington Redskins without a touchdown in a 21-9 victory Sunday, the Colts (1-1) turn their attention to the Eagles (1-1), who are coming off an upset loss at Tampa Bay but could be getting Wentz back. If Wentz is cleared to return nine months after surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left knee, he’ll present another big challenge for Indy’s young group.“Just being technique and fundamentally sound,” safety Malik Hooker said. “He’s a great quarterback, obviously. Everybody knows that. But at the end of the day, football’s an 11-player game and not one Austin Bryant Jersey , so we can’t just let one person beat us. We’re going to get out there and do the same thing and improve on the mistakes that we had this week.”There weren’t many mistakes. After the Redskins led the NFL in rushing yards in Week 1, the Colts held them to 65 and made them one-dimensional.Led by rookie linebacker Darius Leonard, who had a game-high 18 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble, the Indy defense also limited Washington (1-1) to six points off quarterback Andrew Luck‘s two interceptions and were at their best when the offense sputtered.“They’re only going to get better,” Luck said. “They’re young, they’re fast, they’re athletic Rashan Gary Jersey , they’re tough. Fun unit to watch.”In his second NFL game, Leonard looked like a veteran. The second-round pick out of South Carolina State wasn’t bothered when his headset malfunctioned and he lost connection to the sideline at times.“A lot of responsibility,” coach Frank Reich said. “He didn’t lose his poise. ‘OK, I don’t have the call, give me the call,’ just like he’s been doing it for a long time.”100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta

The first pick of the 2019 draft is finally in and it’s exactly the pick that most people have believed it would be for quite a while.Kyler Murray is headed to Arizona and that leaves the Cardinals with two first-round quarterbacks on the roster. For now http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/aut...iman-marshall-jersey , anyway.Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Giants and Washington have both reached out to the Cardinals to let them know that they should give them a call when and if they are ready to talk about trading Josh Rosen. Rosen was Arizona’s first-round pick last year and the Murray selection obviously leaves him with a dim future in the desert.Both of those teams have been linked with a potential Rosen trade in recent months and both have been mentioned as teams that will possibly be selecting quarterbacks in this draft. We’ll see if either or both of them drafts a quarterback in the first round on Thursday in the next few hours. Lorenzo Cain and Travis Shaw helped Milwaukee’s offense break through against the Chicago Cubs, and Chase Anderson did the rest.

Anderson pitched seven innings of one-hit ball to capitalize on a heads-up rundown escape by Cain and a pair of two-run doubles by Shaw, and the Brewers two-hit the Cubs 4-0 on Tuesday night to take back first place in the NL Central.

Shaw had already put Chicago up 2-0 when Cain used his head and legs to escape a sticky spot in the third inning. With Christian Yelich at second, Cain hit a ball up the middle that was fielded by second baseman Javier Baez. Yelich got hung up between second and third but stayed alive through three throws before sprinting back to second base.

Cain, meanwhile, rounded first hard and fooled the Cubs into thinking he was committing to second. If both Yelich and Cain had touched second base, Cain could have been tagged out Trace McSorley Jersey , and so pitcher Tyler Chatwood chased Yelich back to second, thinking Cain was about to end up there.

But Cain stopped a few feet short of second and ran back to first, where no Chicago players were around to field a throw from Chatwood. Yelich returned safely to second, and both players scored moments later on Shaw’s double to right.

Cain said he practiced the play when he was with the Kansas City Royals.

”I actually want to credit that play to Rusty Kuntz,” Cain said of the former first-base coach for the Royals. ”It never actually happened, but for it to happen tonight was huge. It was a nice play.”

Cain said Yelich had to keep hustling or the play would not have worked. Cain said he peeked back and saw that Anthony Rizzo was not covering first base.

”That baserunning play by Cain was flat-out brilliant,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. ”I’ve never seen anything like that. I had no idea what he was planning on doing but it was amazing. That’s seeing the field and understanding what’s happening.”

The Brewers took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on Shaw’s shot that evaded diving first baseman Rizzo and rolled into the right-field corner. Milwaukee ended a seven-game skid to Chicago.

Anderson (5-5) threw a Brewers’ season-high 107 pitches. Chicago’s only hit against him was an infield chopper by Willson Contreras in the second. Anderson retired his final 17 hitters.

”We just could not mount an attack Ed Oliver Jersey ,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. ”Anderson has been difficult against us in the past and he was again tonight. There was not a whole lot going on. Two doubles beat us.”

Anderson had lost his three previous decisions against the Cubs as the Brewers had been shut out in each game. Taylor Williams and Jacob Barnes finished up for Milwaukee with an inning each.

”My command was kind of spotty,” Anderson said. ”I had a good fastball early. As I kept going the curveball came into play and the cutter a little bit. The changeup was good. I was able to throw all my pitches for strikes.”

Cubs right-hander Tyler Chatwood (3-5), who entered the game leading the major leagues in walks, showed better control while allowing four runs (three earned) and walking two batters in five innings.

”My last outing wasn’t pretty, but I felt like I worked on some stuff and took it into this outing,” Chatwood said.

TRAINERS ROOM

Cubs: RHP Yu Darvish threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Tuesday, and Maddon was encouraged by what he saw. ”Outstanding. He threw really well http://www.billsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-cody-ford-jersey ,” Maddon said. ”Easy gas. Great location. Good spin on his breaking ball. Very impressed.” Darvish was put on the disabled list May 23 with right triceps tendinitis. Maddon said if there’s a chance for Darvish to return before the All-Star break, ”I’m into it. Whatever the doctors think.”

Brewers: RHP Matt Albers was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury and RHP Jorge Lopez was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Albers allowed five runs and three hits in the 11th inning Monday night and took the loss in Milwaukee’s 7-2 defeat. ”He got to the point it was affecting him out there on the field and it’s just time to take a break,” Counsell said.

UP NEXT

Cubs: LHP Mike Montgomery (2-1, 3.56 ERA) will make his fourth start since replacing Darvish in the rotation. Montgomery is 2-0 with a 1.02 ERA in his three starts, including a victory over Pittsburgh last week.

Brewers: RHP Jhoulys Chacin has emerged as the team’s ace this season (5-1, 3.58 ERA). The Brewers are 11-3 In his starts and opponents are batting .231 against him.

ENGLEWOOD Jace Sternberger Jersey , Colo. (AP) — John Elway’s much-celebrated 2018 draft class is turning heads at the Broncos‘ training camp, particularly ex-SMU receiver Courtland Sutton, a second-round pick whose spectacular catches have become a daily occurrence.Big applauses also greet draft picks Bradley Chubb, Josey Jewell and DaeSean Hamilton along with another rookie who went undrafted.Phillip Lindsay , a 5-foot-8, 180-pound running back who was born in Denver, grew up in adjacent Aurora, attended Denver South High School and the University of Colorado and is drawing praises from coaches and teammates.“No. 2 has shown explosion,” coach Vance Joseph said Dexter Williams Jersey , referring to the rookie by his jersey number.“He’s a shifty little back,” said linebacker Todd Davis. “He can definitely make people miss.”“We’re definitely going to have some things planned for Phillip,” predicted Von Miller, who sees Lindsay carving a niche in a diverse backfield that includes veteran Devontae Booker, second-year speedster De’Angelo Henderson and rookie draft picks Royce Freeman of Oregon and David Williams of Arkansas.Lindsay is leading the way in plays that draw reactions from the crowd.“Guys like that in the league, you just can’t cover them,” Miller said. “They’re just assets to the offense. You have to have a back like that and we definitely have one.”Uninvited to the NFL combine and bypassed on draft weekend, Lindsay signed a contract with his hometown team that would pay him $480,000 this season and included a $15 Rock Ya-Sin Jersey ,000 signing bonus.By comparison, Freeman’s signing bonus was $997,020 and Williams’ was $93,900.A Colorado alum himself, Joseph was no stranger to Lindsay’s talents.“It’s hard to believe he didn’t go to the combine,” Joseph said. “Obviously he’s a Buff, so I’ve watched Phillip for three years as a starter in a major conference. He was a great player. We were all surprised he didn’t go to the combine, and obviously signing him as a free agent was tough because we drafted two backs. We pursued him heavy and he stayed home.”Lindsay’s college coach, Mike MacIntyre http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/anthony-zettel-jersey , said he has no doubt his former pupil will make it in the NFL because of his versatility, tenacity and willingness to make the most of any morsel of playing time he gets.“In college he covered kicks, returned kicks, he could play on all four big phases,” MacIntyre said. “And then he’s a guy that can catch the ball really well, so he could be a third-down back. He’s a guy that could block well, could run well, so when you take him to the game, even if he doesn’t play a lot of running back early http://www.detroitlionsteamonline.com/jahlani-tavai-jersey , he’s going to play a lot of plays for you. So he’s valuable for you as a coaching staff and a team.“He’ll be the special team coaches’ dream, I promise you that.”MacIntyre got that right.“I love Phillip,” Broncos special teams coordinator Tom McMahon declared. “Phillip works his butt off.”He garnered the nickname “Tasmanian Devil” in college because of the frenetic energy he brings to the team as the undersized underdog he’s been all his life.“I always bring a chip on my shoulder, not because I’m mad but because I know what I have to do,” Lindsay said. “For me, I’m a running back that’s 5-8 and 190 pounds and I have to go and get my respect for the NFL now.”It’s nothing new.“I mean, since when have I not been the underdog?” Lindsay said.NOTES: In honor of owner Pat Bowlen and his wife, Annabel, both of whom are fighting Alzheimer’s http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/kahale-warring-jersey , the Broncos handed out purple towels to their fans and wore purple-and-gray T-shirts Saturday to raise funds and awareness of the disease. … The Broncos will hold a 45-play scrimmage Sunday. ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have signed four-time All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson.The team announced the deal Monday after meeting with Peterson. Jamaal Charles and Orleans Darkwa also visited the Redskins the past two days after several injuries at the position, with the team opting to sign Peterson and De’Veon Smith.Peterson, 33, joins his fourth team as he enters what would be his 12th NFL season. The 2012 MVP is 12th all-time in rushing with 12,276 yards and needs 37 to pass Jim Brown.The former Minnesota Vikings star split last season between Arizona and New Orleans, playing six games for the Cardinals and four for the Saints and finishing with 529 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Peterson is not guaranteed the starting job with Washington and will likely share responsibilities with Rob Kelley and third-down back Chris Thompson.Washington also waived offensive tackle Cameron Jefferson with an injury designation.

ALLEN PARK www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic...y-williams-ii-jersey , Mich. (AP) — Ziggy Ansah may have played his final game with the Detroit Lions.The Lions put Ansah and tight end Michael Roberts on injured reserve Tuesday with shoulder problems. Detroit signed tight end Jerome Cunningham and offensive lineman Leo Koloamatangi from the practice squad to the active roster.Detroit kept Ansah this season with the franchise tag , but he’s dealt with injuries all season and has played in only seven games. He’s still managed four sacks, bringing his total to 48 in six seasons with the Lions.Detroit beat Arizona 17-3 last weekend and plays at Buffalo next. The Lions (5- are a longshot to make the playoffs, even more so without Ansah.It’s not clear where Ansah and the Lions go from here. Detroit drafted Ansah with the fifth overall pick in 2013, and he has been an effective pass rusher ever since. He had a career-high 14½ sacks in 2015, and although he managed only two the following season, he bounced back with 12 in 2017.But this season, he left the opener in September with a shoulder injury and missed the next six games. He had three sacks in his first four games after returning, but he was hurt again against Arizona.Coach Matt Patricia held a conference call Tuesday Ryquell Armstead Jersey , but it was before the team announced Ansah’s move to IR.Roberts has played in eight games this season, starting two. He has nine catches for 100 yards and three touchdowns. We’ve spent plenty of time the past couple of days talking about players being upset with their ratings in the new Madden game, and the motivation they have drawn from it. One player who shouldn’t be upset (and in turn has no basis for extra motiviation) is Rams running back Todd Gurley.Gurley is the highest-rated running back in the game, with a 97 overall. And, frankly, that decision should spark the biggest questions about the skills, abilities, and knowledge of the nameless and faceless EA employees who come up with these numbers.Gurley’s career remains at a crossroads, at best. He has an arthritic condition in his knee www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic...er-minshew-ii-jersey , along with a clear case of denial about it. The Rams kept him in bubble wrap during the offseason program, and there are real questions regarding whether he’ll even come close to being the guy that he previously was.So, yes, Gurley apparently has a friend at EA.Madden gave six other running backs ratings of 90 or higher: Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (94), Jets running back Le'Veon Bell (92), Chargers running back Melvin Gordon (92), Giants running back Saquon Barkley (91), Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (91), Browns running back Kareem Hunt (90) Marquise Brown Jersey , and Saints running back Alvin Kamara (90).That’s more than a bit out of whack. Right now, the NFL has three special running backs: Elliott, Barkley, and McCaffrey. They should be the three highest-rated tailbacks.Others with potential beef include Bengals running back Joe Mixon (88), Washington running back Adrian Peterson (83), Steelers running back James Conner (83), Titans running back Derrick Henry (83), Eagles running back Jordan Howard (80), and Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (74).If that motivates these players www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/jaylon-...son-jersey-authentic , so be it. What makes more sense, motivation from a perceived slight by the makers of a video game most NFL players have played their whole lives or motivation from a radio, TV, or Internet gasbag that they otherwise ignore? That’s an important point for any radio, TV, and/or Internet gasbags who are griping about players being motivated by Madden to consider.

Shurmur said. “Nothing serious. He’ll be back soon.�? The 2017 season is underway, and many predictions have gone around for who will make it to Super Bowl LII. Many teams have shown that they can play around with the top dogs in the NFL, but it takes a lot more to make it to the Super Bowl. There are many teams that have played well in the regular season http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-...c-phil-haynes-jersey , and completely dropped the ball once it came time to the playoffs. The Super Bowl is considered one of the biggest sports events throughout the year, and it also may be considered one of the toughest goals to reach. With football being a complete team sport, it makes it very difficult for teams to make it that far.Many of the greatest players in NFL history have never made it that far including stars like Tony Romo, Dan Marino, and Barry Sanders. With competition rising in the NFL, it makes it tougher to get back to the Super Bowl. With many teams getting more and more experienced Ugo Amadi Jersey , or other teams getting older, it gives other teams a disadvantage who are trying to make it to the greatest event in sports. With the season finally here, and many new changes, it only makes sense to break down which teams will and will not make it to the Super Bowl.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Moving from Oakland to New Orleans was as much a personal choice as a professional one for 2018 Pro Bowl tight end Jared Cook.“Location. Quarterback. Offense www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-aut...e-sternberger-jersey ,” Cook began. “It’s important that at this point in my career — I think it’s awesome — that I’m closer to home. Drew Brees is a great quarterback, approaches the game like true vet and like a true perfectionist. He does all the little thigs right.“I also have a chance to come in right now and make an impact,” Cook added Wednesday, a day after formally agreeing to a reported two-year, $15.5 million free-agent contract with New Orleans. “I have an opportunity to come in and be a huge part of a prolific and high-powered offense.”Cook complimented the Raiders for the way they played to his strengths and helped him have the best campaign of his 10-year career last season. He knew there were inherent risks in leaving a good situation. But he said those risks were mitigated considerably by what New Orleans had to offer.The Saints have been among NFL leaders in offense since coach Sean Payton began designing the plays and Brees began executing them back in 2006. There have been some seasons, particularly while Jimmy Graham was on the roster, when the tight end position accounted for a significant portion of the passing offense.But that did not happen for the Saints’ eighth-ranked offense last season. Three tight ends — Ben Watson, Josh Hill and Dan Arnold — combined for 63 catches for 735 yards and four touchdowns. And Watson, who led the position group with 35 catches for 400 yards and two TDs Dexter Williams Jersey , has retired.The 6-foot-5, 254-pound Cook caught 68 passes for 896 yards and six touchdowns with Oakland last season and was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time.“The last few years I’ve been able to kind of learn under one offense, play with one quarterback, get to know that one quarterback pretty well,” Cook said. “That’s been the biggest different in the transition of my career as of late — and they actually used me what I’m good at.”Cook said Raiders coach Jon Gruden “found ways to expose matchups all over the field. He found ways to move me around in different positions to actually help me and make me more versatile.”In Payton’s first NFL job in Philadelphia, he worked under Gruden, and the two offensive-minded coaches have philosophical similarities. Payton also is known for shifting players’ roles — sometimes considerably — from week to week in search of favorable matchups.Cook was well aware of that because his tight ends coach in Oakland was Frank Smith, who worked on Payton’s staff in New Orleans from 2010-14. Cook said Smith often would touch on his experience with New Orleans when they talked football.“So, I knew a lot about the Saints and the guys in that building before I got down there Nick Bosa Jersey ,” Cook said.Another attraction was the opportunity to stress a secondary in tandem with Saints top receiver Michael Thomas.“It’s going to be huge for both of us,” Cook said. “I like his mentality. That’s something that you don’t find in a lot of receivers —that, ‘I’m going to go get mine, and I’m going to go get this and nobody’s going to be able to stop me —and I think that’s important to have in this league.”Cook, who turns 32 next month, was born in Alabama and grew up outside Atlanta, where he often watched the Falcons practice from a hilltop with his father. He played in college at South Carolina and began his NFL career with Tennessee, which traded with New England to get him during the third round of the 2009 draft.He spent his first four seasons in Tennessee, where in 2011 he had 49 catches for 759 yards and three touchdowns.Cook later spent three seasons with the St. Louis Rams and one season with Green Bay before joining Oakland two seasons ago. In his career L.J. Collier Jersey , Cook has 425 catches for 5,464 yards and 25 touchdowns.Being back near the Southeast puts Cook, who is married with children, in more manageable proximity to extended family and friends, he said. He sees that not as a distraction, but rather as a way to focus on football with greater peace of mind.“I have a bigger support system. I have more people around me and more family around me that can kind of help with daily life a little bit more,” Cook said. “It’s going to help me and my family out quite a bit.” The Dolphins have yet to add a quarterback to their roster for the 2019 season, but they have now parted ways with their starter from 2018.The agents for Ryan Tannehill announced on Friday afternoon that their client has been traded to the Titans. They also announced that he’s signed a new one-year deal that presumably cuts his salary down from the $18.725 million he was due to make under the terms of his contract with the Dolphins.While the agents announced the trade, there’s been no word about the compensation headed back to Miami.Tannehill’s new contract presumably cements his status as the No. 2 behind Marcus Mariota as well. Given Mariota’s injury history www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authent...arquise-blair-jersey , though, it would not come as a surprise if he makes some starts during the 2019 season. Mariota missed three games last year and has missed at least one game in all four of his NFL seasons.With Tannehill off the roster, Jake Rudock and David Fales are the only quarterbacks under contract with the Dolphins.: According to multiple reports, the Titans are sending a 2020 fourth-round pick and a 2019 seventh-round pick to Miami for Tannehill and a 2019 sixth-round pick.: Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Tannehill will make a fully guaranteed $7 million salary that can rise above $12 million if incentives, some of which are tied to playing time, are reached.

KANSAS CITY Jahlani Tavai Jersey , Mo. (AP) — Steve Spagnuolo spent much of his year out of coaching making the 45-minute drive from his home in Philadelphia to the headquarters of NFL Films in Mount Laurel, New Jersey.Spagnuolo had finished a tour as the interim coach of the New York Giants and missed out on the full-time job after the season. He turned down an assistant coaching offer and decided instead to spend the season recharging his proverbial batteries while getting a different perspective on the league.No better place to do that than the repository for all NFL game film.“I’m glad I did it. There might have been another year I should have done it,” said Spagnuolo, who was hired a couple weeks go to be Andy Reid’s defensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs.“I found it to be both challenging and rewarding,” he explained Wednesday. “The challenge was missing football, missing the camaraderie of the players and coaches. The reward was to sit back and see a big picture of the NFL and the game of football, as opposed to being in these buildings during the season with blinders on. Just a big-picture view of the league, the game of football.”While ensconced at NFL Films headquarters, the former St. Louis Rams head coach had plenty of time to check out the Chiefs, whose Super Bowl run came up short in the AFC title game.One of the clearest reasons? Their defense, which ranked near the bottom of the league in almost every statistical category. In fact Will Harris Jersey , it was the defense that failed to stop the New England Patriots in overtime of the championship game, preventing Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the rest of their dynamic offense from even getting onto the field in the extra session.More than anything else it was that performance that sealed the fate of longtime defensive coordinator Bob Sutton. He was fired within days of the season ending, and almost his entire staff was let go, found jobs elsewhere or, in the case of Emmitt Thomas, simply retired.Now, it is up to Spagnuolo to turn around the Chiefs’ weak spot.“I don’t really go backward. I’m not going to pass judgment,” Spagnuolo said. “I think the world of Bob Sutton. Bob and I have known each other a long time. A change was made — coach Reid made that decision — I’m just happy I was able to fall into what I think is a great position.”There are certainly pieces in place for a quick turnaround. There are also some crucial decisions to be made in short order.Top pass rusher Dee Ford is due to become a free agent, though the Chiefs are expected to place the franchise tag on him as they pursue a long-term deal. Defensive tackle Chris Jones is coming off a breakout season and is eligible to sign an extension, while the albatross contracts of safety Eric Berry and linebacker Justin Houston must be dealt with in some fashion. Perhaps they get restructured. Perhaps the two elder statesmen are released. Either way, the Chiefs could sorely use the salary cap relief to shore up other areas of the defense.They also have the draft in April Austin Bryant Jersey , and a first-round pick for the first time in two years, though they spent nearly all their picks on defense last season, with modest returns.“This is a process. There are no quick fixes. There is no magic wand,” Spagnuolo said. “One person does not assure success, but we’ll do everything to put something together.”Spagnuolo acknowledged in an interview Wednesday the lure of the Chiefs, who are well-positioned to chase championships for years. They have one of the most stable ownerships in the NFL, a highly respected head coach in Reid, the reigning league MVP in the 23-year-old Mahomes, and plenty of high-powered talent on offense to keep pace with just about any other team.The biggest piece missing is a defense that can get off the field when it matters most.Like overtime of the AFC championship game.“You won’t touch a defensive coach in the NFL that wouldn’t want to be on a team with, A, a really good head football coach and Rashan Gary Jersey , B, a really good quarterback,” Spagnuolo said. “It goes without saying I’m really excited to be part of an organization that has an elite quarterback, and quite frankly to work with Andy Reid again, and what he’s all about and what he’s meant to this franchise and the league as a whole is really, really special.” Sam Darnold woke up feeling contagious, so he won’t be playing this week and Trevor Siemian will be starting at quarterback for the Jets when they host the Browns on Monday night.Siemian signed with the Jets as a free agent this offseason and started 24 regular season games with the Broncos in 2016 and 2017. He found out Darnold has mono on Wednesday night, which bumped him back into a starting role and his referenced his previous experience during a press conference on Thursday afternoon.“I’ve been there and done it a little bit,” Siemian said. “It’s been a while . . . I’m champing at the bit to compete and be out there with the guys. I’ll just say I feel comfortable.”Siemian was 25-of-32 for 158 yards and a touchdown in the preseason.Siemian said he wasn’t worried about Darnold’s absence being too big of a hurdle for the team to overcome because they’re “mentally tough” and “built to handle this.” Monday will show whether Siemian’s correct or if the Jets will be staring at 0-2 with the Patriots looming in Week Three.

The NFL is full of aging superstars that we have been watching for a decade or longer. The harsh reality of a football player is that their career is often over rather quickly with exceptions to some based on their level of play and the position they play. Quarterbacks and receivers can often play much longer than other positions due to them not taking the pounding as say http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-ben-banogu-jersey , a running back would. They say once a running back turns 30 that his level of play drops dramatically. That is true for most, but some can break that mold and continue to play at a high level.The league has seen guys play into their 40s who maybe should have hung up the cleats a little sooner, but has also seen some guys wrap up their careers either very early or even their prime. Football is a rough sport and it takes a toll on your body over time. Rules are changing every year in attempt to make the game safer, but the unfortunate reality is that unless you pin flags on players’ waists Parris Campbell Jersey , the game is going to be dangerous and full of hard contact.By taking into account the age of some guys, their history, and level of play we can potentially see a list of guys be done with the game by the end of this season. Here are seven quarterbacks, seven running backs http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/miles-boykin-jersey-cheap , and seven receivers that can potentially be out of the league by the end of the year. Some of these players are currently free agents so the idea is that they will be out of the league entirely by seasons end. The Bears offense earned low marks in the first two weeks of the season, but things went better against Washington on Monday night.Their 31 points were more than they’d managed in the first two games and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was 25-of-31 for 275 and his first three touchdowns of the season. Trubisky stopped short of calling it a breakthrough performance after the game, but head coach Matt Nagy’s comments about the quarterback on Tuesday set it up as a jumping off point for the rest of the season.“So that confidence word is so big,” Nagy said http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-bobby-okereke-jersey Jersey , via the . “And Mitch knew where we are as an offense and he wants it more than anybody. But that’s sometimes where I think when you want it more than anybody and you care, it can almost get into that paralysis-by-analysis. Because you’re trying it. I really like the fact that how he went into this week and he handled this week of practice, it transferred over to the game. In the game he was just Steady Eddie the whole way. I mean, he was very smooth. He never got rattled Noah Fant Jersey , even after the red-zone pick, he came off and knew that he can’t do that. But he didn’t let it affect his game. And that’s where I think he’s growing. And now here we go — all these games are big and now we got to prepare for this next big one.”Trubisky had games similar to Monday’s on multiple occasions during the 2018 season, but struggled to string together good outings on a consistent basis. An ability to do that would mark a real and welcome breakthrough for the third-year quarterback.

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets made a big move to get a big man to bolster their offensive line.Two people with direct knowledge of the trade told The Associated Press that the Jets agreed Sunday to acquire two-time Pro Bowl left guard Kelechi Osemele from the Oakland Raiders.The deal includes the Jets sending their fifth-round draft pick to the Raiders for Oakland’s sixth-rounder Devin Singletary Jersey , according to one of the people who spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity because the trade can’t be completed until the new league year starts Wednesday.ESPN first reported the trade for Osemele, with Bay Area News Group first reporting the terms.The deal is the second by the Raiders in less than 24 hours. They agreed Saturday to acquire receiver Antonio Brown in a trade with Pittsburgh.The 6-foot-5, 330-pound Osemele fills a major need on the Jets’ offensive line in front of quarterback Sam Darnold. Starting left guard James Carpenter is scheduled to become a free agent after an injury-shortened season. Carpenter spent the past four seasons with New York after playing in Seattle for four and helping the Seahawks win the Super Bowl in 2014.But the Jets appeared ready to move on from Carpenter, who turns 30 later this month and is coming off a shoulder injury that limited him to 10 games last season.New York, which entered the offseason with question marks on its offensive line at center and left guard, is re-signing Jonotthan Harrison, who started the final seven games at center when Spencer Long struggled with injuries and consistency. But it’s uncertain whether Harrison is in new coach Adam Gase’s plans as the starter moving forward. Long was released last month after just one season with the Jets and has since signed with Buffalo.Meanwhile, the Raiders save $10.2 million on their salary cap by dealing Osemele, who turns 30 in June. He is also due $11.7 million next season, but none of the remaining salary includes guaranteed money.Osemele was a second-round pick of Baltimore in 2012 and he started every game at right tackle as a rookie before moving to left guard to replace the injured Jah Reid in the postseason. He was limited to seven games the following year because of a back injury, but started 28 games over the next two seasons for the Ravens.He signed a five-year, $58.5 million deal with Oakland in 2016 and made the Pro Bowl in each of his first two years with the Raiders. Osemele’s performance dropped last season as he dealt with toe and knee injuries that limited him to 11 games.Raiders coach Jon Gruden and first-year general manager Mike Mayock made an even bigger splash Saturday night when they swung the deal to acquire the prolific but disgruntled Brown.Oakland will sign Brown to a new three-year deal with the Raiders that will pay him $50.125 million instead of the $38.925 million he was owed by the Steelers. The deal also includes $30 million guaranteed Kyler Murray Jersey , compared to none remaining in his old deal. It also gives Derek Carr the best offensive weapon he has had in Oakland since entering the league in 2014. ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — New Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo acknowledged after a spirited practice this week that he generally is reluctant to start rookies until they’ve earned their stripes.“I’m still old-fashioned that way,” Spagnuolo said.Might be time to enter the modern age.As part of a vast offseason overhaul of the Kansas City defense, the Chiefs released longtime safety Eric Berry and several other backups. Then, they used a second-round draft pick on Juan Thornhill, hopeful that the big-play ability he showed at Virginia would translate quickly to the NFL.So far it has.Of all the youngsters to make an impression in training camp, the ball-hawking centerfielder in the No. 22 jersey stands out. He has made a habit of breaking up passes while covering speedsters Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins, and more than once he has baited Patrick Mahomes into an interception.“We got to see him play corner and safety in college. He did a little of each,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “The one consistency was that he made plays at both spots. He’s doing that out here. Early on, he was getting his hands on the ball but he wasn’t getting the picks. Now he’s making the picks.”That bodes well for Spagnuolo’s revamped defense.One of the biggest problems last season was the back end, where Berry was sidelined nearly the entire season by injuries and his fill-ins weren’t particularly good. The Chiefs addressed the issue by giving a big contract to Tyrann Mathieu and then selecting Thornhill in the draft.Suddenly, one of their biggest weaknesses has become one of their biggest strengths.“I’ve been playing a bunch of safety spots right now http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-auth...c-dawson-knox-jersey ,” Thornhill said, “but like I said, I will step in and play any position that they need me to play — like, if I need to play nickel, safety, corner, it really doesn’t matter. I’ll just step in and do what I have to do to help the team.”Thornhill was listed second behind veteran Daniel Sorensen on the initial depth chart released for Saturday night’s preseason opener against Cincinnati. But what shows up on paper is far different from what has shown up on the practice field: Thornhill has been running with the No. 1 defense just as much, and there are times that all three safeties have been on the field at once.He clearly has the most upside. The trick now is finding his ceiling as quickly as possible.“When we first got out there a bunch of our guys were playing a little slow because guys didn’t really know what was going on. I mean everything was pretty much new to everybody,” Thornhill said. “But now since we had OTAs and minicamp, guys are picking up things a lot faster and picking up the defense and we are making a lot more plays, so that is definitely helping us.”Thornhill isn’t the only rookie the Chiefs are eager to see against the Bengals.Wide receiver Mecole Hardman, their other second-round pick http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/aut...xter-lawrence-jersey , and defensive tackle Khalen Saunders, their third-round selection, are among seven rookies that showed up on the initial two-deep. And that doesn’t include running back Darwin Thompson, who could supplant Carlos Hyde and Darrel Williams for the No. 2 job with a good showing in preseason games.“They’re improving. In general, I’d tell you that they’re improving every day,” Reid said of his rookie class. “They’re working hard at it. One advantage of being up here (at Missouri Western) is that there’s not a lot else to do other than meet, eat and practice.”Reid showed the same reluctance as Spagnuolo to start rookies early in his career, but that has changed in Kansas City. Left tackle Eric Fisher, cornerback Marcus Peters, defensive tackle Chris Jones and wide receiver Hill are just some of the first-year players to start meaningful games.All of them earned their jobs during the offseason and training camp.Thornhill appears to be following in their footsteps.NOTES: The Chiefs finalized a one-year deal with CB Morris Claiborne on Friday. They had reached an agreement Thursday but needed Claiborne to pass a physical and sign the contract. He will miss the first four games of the season for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. … Reid said Mahomes and the rest of the starters will play the first quarter Saturday night. Backup QB Chad Henne will get the second quarter, third-stringer Kyle Shurmur will get the third and Chase Litton the fourth.

Houston Texans running back D'Onta Foreman has recovered from a ruptured Achilles tendon he suffered almost a year ago and could return to practice soon.When Foreman returns to practice the team will have 21 days to take him off the physically unable to perform list and add him to the active roster.He believes he could return to practice as early as this week."I'm just waiting for them to let me know Cheap Cullen Gillaspia Jersey , but I think it will be this week," he said. "I definitely think it will be this week. But ... I'm just ready to go out there. Whenever they put my helmet in my locker and tell me: 'Let's go.'"Foreman, a third-round pick in 2017 from Texas, ran for 327 yards with two touchdowns and had 83 yards receiving before his injury on Nov. 19.Coach Bill O'Brien didn't give an exact date for when he expects him to begin practicing, but said Monday that it would be "pretty soon." After that they'll evaluate him to see if he's in good enough shape to return to the active roster."I think that there's a lot of thought that goes into that for the player and for the team Cullen Gillaspia Jersey Womens ," O'Brien said."He has not played football in a long time. He's a very young player. He's got a lot of talent, everybody saw that last year, but let's see where he's at. Let's see where he's at before we start handing him the ball in big games."Foreman, who won the Doak Walker Award as the nation's top collegiate running back in 2016, said he's feeling great now Cullen Gillaspia Houston Texans Jersey , but that his rehabilitation process was trying."At first it was difficult," he said. "I just had a lot of up and down days not knowing if I would feel the same or how would I feel coming off of it. But ... I've been rehabbing for a long time (and) I'm just looking forward to getting back out there."The Texans, who are coming off their bye, visit Washington on Sunday before hosting the Titans on Nov. 26. It’s Franchise Tag time in the NFL."The 2019 NFL offseason unofficially begins today, because today teams can franchise tag players. If you don’t know what that means Cullen Gillaspia Jersey 2019 , the franchise tag keeps a player on a roster via a one-year contract at a high salary. If you want more information, you can get it here. Team’s have until March 5th to use their tag if they choose to do so. Choosing to use the franchise tag is an integral decision for the Houston Texans this offseason. Star defensive end, and a player I liked to call the best run stopping defensive end in the game, Jadeveon Clowney, is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after playing out the entirety of his rookie contract. Houston can try to re-sign him to a mega contract—the type that pays him out $20 million a year over five years—or they can ensure he stays in Houston for the 2019 season by tagging him and then re-signing him later in the offseason or sticking with him on a one-year deal and revisiting the decision next offseason. Each choice has its advantages. If the Texans give Clowney big money and a multi-year contract now Cullen Gillaspia Jersey Mens , they can do it with a front-loaded deal while they have the cap space and Deshaun Watson on a rookie contract. If the Texans tag Clowney, it gives them insurance that he can’t run away and play for the Indianapolis Colts (at least in 2019).If the Texans use the franchise tag on Clowney and keep him on a one-year contract, it ensures Houston won’t get burned by a player with the injury history Clowney has, even if it is one that hasn’t been an issue the last three seasons. Additionally, a $17 million dollar cap hit Youth Cullen Gillaspia Jersey , the estimated cost for defensive ends that get tagged, isn’t a big deal for a team with over $70 million in cap space. I think I know what I would do. What would you do, loyal reader? Do you think the Texans will use their franchise tag to keep Clowney around for at least one more year?

Jalen Hurd began his college career at Tennessee Khari Willis Jersey , where he played running back so well that he was ahead of Alvin Kamara on the depth chart, and finished sixth in school history in rushing yards despite leaving before his NCAA eligibility expired. He then transferred to Baylor and played wide receiver, playing so well that he was named Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year.And it says something about Hurd that despite all that success at running back and wide receiver, he might end up playing tight end in the NFL.The 49ers selected Hurd in the third round of the draft, and head coach Kyle Shanahan said he’s never before drafted a player he could see playing running back, wide receiver or tight end in the NFL.“He can do about everything,” Shanahan said. “I think if he would have stayed a running back, I think he would have gotten drafted as an NFL running back. Today he got drafted as an NFL receiver, kind of. I believe if he tried to play tight end he would have gotten drafted as an NFL tight end. That’s a pretty unique thing to have. I don’t remember being able to say that about any player I’ve studied before. So, it’s neat to be able to do that and he can help us out in a lot of different ways.”San Francisco General Manager John Lynch said Hurd played at over 250 pounds when Tennessee was asking him to run a lot in short-yardage situations, then got himself under 230 pounds when Baylor was asking him to run deep routes as a wide receiver. Hurd weighed 226 at the Scouting Combine, but Lynch said the 49ers will let Hurd get to the weight where he feels like he’s in his best physical condition, and then decide exactly how he’ll be used. The 49ers are excited about the possibilities. <em>TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS PRESS RELEASE</em>On Thursday, October 5 Josh Allen Jersey , when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the New England Patriots for Thursday Night Football, the team will honor late owner Malcolm Glazer at halftime with an induction ceremony into the Buccaneers Ring of Honor.

His deep commitment to the Tampa Bay area is at the core of our organizational identity to this day.”Glazer, who passed away on May 28, 2014, at the age of 85, purchased the team in 1995 for a then-record $192 million and immediately began one of the most impressive organizational transformations in professional sports. Two years after Glazer’s purchase, the Buccaneers broke a 16-year postseason drought in 1997 and would go on to make the playoffs three of the next four seasons.Determined to turn his team into a Super Bowl champion, Glazer made a bold move that changed the course of the franchise prior to the 2002 season. In a transaction that sent shockwaves throughout the NFL, he hired Jon Gruden away from the Oakland Raiders in exchange for two first-round draft picks, two second-round draft picks and $8 million in cash. Less than 12 months later, in January 2003, he delivered the fans of Tampa Bay their first major professional world championship with a resounding victory over the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII. During his tenure as owner and president from 1995-2013, the Buccaneers earned seven playoff berths, played in two NFC Championship Games and won their first Super Bowl.In addition to turning around the team’s on-field fortunes http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/auth...bobby-okereke-jersey , Glazer left an equally deep and lasting impact as an advocate for the Tampa Bay community. In 1999, he established the Glazer Family Foundation, which has donated millions and reached out to countless thousands in need. He also was a driving force in the negotiations that secured Super Bowls XXXV and XLIII for Tampa. In 2010, Glazer added to his community-driven legacy with the opening of the Glazer Children’s Museum in downtown Tampa.Fans attending the sold-out, nationally-televised game will receive a Buccaneers t-shirt, sponsored by Publix, featuring a custom “MG Ring of Honor�? patch on the sleeve.In addition to the Ring of Honor festivities, the team will continue the tradition of honoring local heroes throughout gameday with the Hero of the Game and the Salute to Service Suite, supported by Jabil, amongst other recognition activities.107<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader photo galleryReinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports | Reinhold Matay

SANTA CLARA Benny Snell Jr. Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Nick Mullens knows how to make a good first impression.Whether it was wearing a suit to his pre-draft interview with the San Francisco 49ers or setting records in his NFL debut, Mullens has proven that he can get off on the right foot in a new situation.Now the key for Mullens heading into his second start for the 49ers (2-7) on Monday night against the New York Giants will be building on the big performance he had last week against the Oakland Raiders to earn that second chance.Instead of getting rushed into action on a short week with no real practice, Mullens gets the benefit of a full week of work with his teammates as he tries to match the three-touchdown performance in a 34-3 win over the Raiders last Thursday night.“He doesn’t have to cram everything in in a day and a half,” coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday. “He’s got the whole week to kind of let it saturate, learn the play calls, spit them out easier, gets to throw some full-speed balls to all our players where last week there wasn’t one full-speed rep. I think it helps prepare him more and makes him more comfortable going into the game.”Mullens has felt comfortable ever since joining the Niners. He impressed people by dressing up for the interview and even though he went undrafted out of Southern Mississippi, he showed enough to stick around last year on the practice squad.Mullens kept working hard, knowing the offense as well as anyone and improving at working under center after spending so much time in college in the shotgun that he had to watch YouTube videos to teach himself how to drop back properly.“He worked as hard as anyone last year and he played scout team safety all last year,” Shanahan said. “We spent most of last year this time messing with him on how bad his backpedal looked and things like that, on tape. But, he was a guy who just, he knew he had to do that, that’s how the league works. You don’t have enough guys to practice and he didn’t just sit there and mope about it because I get how people could because it isn’t a fair situation. But, he found ways to work on his own, to grab guys after, to go out late at night and do stuff. He’s obsessed with getting better and he’s needed the time to do it and it helped him get ready for last week.”That hard work paid off when Mullens got his first chance to play in a game when C.J. Beathard was hampered by a sore right wrist.Mullens completed 16 of 22 passes for 262 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 151.9 passer rating last week. That’s the highest since the merger for a player in his debut with at least 20 attempts.Mullens also joined Hall of Famers Jim Kelly (1986) and Fran Tarkenton (1961) as the only QBs to throw for at least 250 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception in their NFL debuts.That made it an easy call to give Mullens a second start this week, although Shanahan said he will evaluate the quarterbacks on a week-to-week basis.“I don’t think it was too tough of a decision,” Shanahan said. “Our team played really well and he played well. It was going to be hard to not give him the opportunity.”About the only time Mullens got flustered was when Shanahan kept talking after relaying the play call into Mullens’ helmet. Mullens got frustrated enough that teammates said he told Shanahan to quiet down even though the helmet offers only one-way communication.That ended up amusing his teammates and lightening the mood in the huddle.“Sometimes in the huddle Zach Gentry Jersey , you hear the play call and you’re ready to repeat it …,” Mullens said. “I was just ready to call the play.”Shanahan joked that Mullens will have to yell at him louder if he wants his coach to hear him on the sideline but he understands the frustration.“That’s always the dilemma for coaches and quarterbacks. It’s funny because I know if I was a quarterback and someone was yelling in my ears, I would handle it much worse than those guys would,” Shanahan said. “I struggle. I’ve almost gotten in trouble with head coaches for saying the wrong thing when you’re trying to think and make a play call and someone’s yelling in your ear, it’s hard to think.”NOTES: LB Reuben Foster (hamstring) and S Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) didn’t practice and will be questionable this week. … WR Pierre Garcon (knee) and LT Joe Staley (veteran’s day) also didn’t practice. … The 49ers promoted DB Greg Mabin to the active roster from the practice squad and signed CB Tarvarus McFadden to the practice squad. All those promises worth millions upon millions to free agents turned into paydays Wednesday when the NFL’s business year began.Of course, teams needed to clear salary cap space or rejigger their ledgers to make it work, and they’ll still be doing so for months.While the likes of Drew Brees, Malcolm Butler and Andrew Norwell cashed in bigtime, having reached agreements in the past two days before everything became official, some value entered the marketplace.Arizona released safety Tyrann Mathieu when it couldn’t rework his deal. On Tuesday, the Cardinals let running back Adrian Peterson go.Baltimore cut receiver Jeremy Maclin. Detroit said goodbye to tight end Eric Ebron. Pittsburgh tore up a secondary that often was torn up by opposing quarterbacks, releasing Mike Mitchell, Robert Golden and William Gay.But Carolina had more success with a veteran, completing a one-year deal with defensive end Julius Peppers.The 38-year-old Peppers, who contemplated retirement after 17 pro seasons, remains with the Panthers for $5 million, with $2.5 million guaranteed, a person familiar with the situation said. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team does not release financial terms of contracts.”I am fired up to have him back,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. ”It was amazing to have him as part of what we are trying to build and I think he can help us get to the next level.”Cleveland, meanwhile Nick Bosa Jersey , did nothing more than listen to one of its greatest players, tackle Joe Thomas , announce his retirement. The Browns save his $10.3 million salary for 2018 and a $3 million bonus but lose their best player and leader in the expansion era (1999-present), a 10-time Pro Bowler.”This was an extremely difficult decision, but the right one for me and my family,” Thomas said. ”Playing in the NFL has taken a toll on my body and I can no longer physically compete at the level I need to.”CARDINALSMathieu was due for $18.75 million of his contract to be guaranteed when the league year officially begins. By cutting him, Arizona will save close to $5 million in cap space.Mathieu became a star in the Arizona secondary after being selected in the third round of the 2013 draft following a troubled college career at LSU. He was an All-Pro in 2015, when he had five interceptions and 17 passes defensed.But he also has been plagued by injuries and only last season did Mathieu appear in all 16 games.RAVENSBaltimore frees up an estimated $5 million in salary cap space by releasing Maclin, who signed on as a free agent in June. But Maclin missed two games with a shoulder injury, two more with knee issues, and finished with only 40 catches for 440 yards and three touchdowns. The 84 receptions he had over the past two seasons (2016 with Kansas City) are three fewer than he had with the Chiefs in 2015.Then the Ravens agreed to deals with receivers John Brown and Ryan Grant.Brown, 27, spent four years in Arizona and is a speedy deep threat, something Baltimore desperately needs. He can also return kicks.Grant, also 27, was with Washington for four seasons.49ERSSan Francisco agreed to a four-year contract with running back Jerick McKinnon and a five-year deal with center-guard Weston Richburg. McKinnon replaces departing starter Carlos Hyde and Richburg could start anywhere in the interior line.”We see Weston as one of the top young interior offensive linemen in the NFL,” GM John Lynch said. ”His athleticism, intelligence and attitude are a perfect fit for our scheme. Jerick has proven to be an extremely versatile football player whose speed, elusiveness and tackle-breaking ability make him a very difficult matchup for defenses. We can’t wait to get them on the field with their teammates and coaches later this spring.”GIANTSNew York agreed with offensive tackle Nate Solder, late of the Patriots L.J. Collier Jersey , to become its starter on the left side. Solder, 29, will get a four-year contract worth about $62 million.The Giants can move 2015 first-round draft pick Ereck Flowers to the right side as they rebuild a line that has struggled for years.TITANSTennessee kept right guard Josh Kline and defensive end David King with new contracts after making a splash in free agency by getting Butler for $60 million over five years ($30 million guaranteed) and also taking running back Dion Lewis away from New England.BILLSThe Bills restocked their quarterback position by agreeing to a two-year contract with AJ McCarron.The 27-year-old spent the past four seasons backing up Andy Dalton in Cincinnati after being selected by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2014 draft.McCarron’s signing came five days after Buffalo traded three-year starter Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland. The trade left 2017 fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman as the only quarterback on Buffalo’s roster.Buffalo also added defensive end Trent Murphy from Washington and got a needed pass rusher, albeit a player coming off a major injury.Murphy had 15 sacks in 47 games, including nine in 2016, then sat out last season after tearing two ligaments in his left knee in a preseason game.The Bills finished tied for 30th in the NFL with just 27 sacks last season.The Bills added defensive backfield depth by agreeing with safety Rafael Bush on a two-year contract, and got linebacker Julian Stanford on a two-year contract.FALCONSThe Falcons addressed a need by signing offensive guard Brandon Fusco, who started 16 games for San Francisco last season, to a three-year deal. Fusco, who began his career with the Vikings, could immediately start at right guard.DOLPHINSFive-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh officially was released, when the trades to acquire defensive end Robert Quinn and send Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns were formalized.Miami also released tight end Julius Thomas, which had been expected, but decided to keep right tackle Ja’Wuan James, which guarantees him $9.34 million in 2018.CHARGERSTight end Virgil Green got a three-year contract and safety Adrian Phillips re-signed with a one-year deal.Green spent the past seven seasons with the Broncos, starting all 16 games last season and winning a Super Bowl ring in February 2016. His addition adds intrigue to whether the Chargers will bring back 37-year-old tight end Antonio Gates, who hopes to extend his record-setting career for at least another season.JETSNew York signed linebacker Avery Williamson to a three-year contract worth $22.5 million. Williamson spent his first four NFL seasons with Tennessee and led the Titans in tackles in two of those years.The Jets also tendered wide receiver Quincy Enunwa at the second-round level, worth $2.9 million.

The Buffalo Bills are known as the team that always managed to "choke". Time and time again Justin Layne Jersey , fans are disappointed with the pathetic management and lack of discipline on the team. This article shows some of the Bills biggest mistakes, which cost them years of potential success.It is important for readers to understand that teams do not necessarily have a first round pick every season. This means, that various years are not included in this article. Notably, like many other NFL teams, Buffalo scouts missed out on some great talent in drafts. In other cases, Bills fans were hoping that they would select one player www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/benn...ell-jr.-jersey-cheap , but management makes a risky decision and chooses someone else. Having watched a significant amount of Bills games in my life, I can tell you this; they are poorly coached every year. The Bills often lack discipline. With the right coaching and players, Buffalo could be a respected franchise, like many other organizations. As of right now, they are one of the joke teams of the NFL, a team that does not have a shot at doing anything special. While Rex Ryan is no longer the head coach in Buffalo Zach Gentry Jersey , fans will have to hope the team can finally buckle down and focus on football. If the organization could get a playoff berth, it would mean a lot to fans.Note: The Bills did not have a first round pick in 2015 or 2005. A Kansas City sports radio host has been taken off the air for comments about Chiefs coach Andy Reid lacking discipline, citing Reid’s son, who died of a drug overdose.“We are aware of the controversial comments made by Kevin Kietzman during yesterday’s broadcast of Between the Lines,” Sports Radio WHB said in a statement. “We have decided to take the immediate step to take Kevin off the air until further notice as we review this matter. We take Kevin’s comments and those of all on-air staff seriously. Kevin’s comments were clearly not to his or our standards. Please know that we will take necessary appropriate actions. We sincerely apologize to Andy Reid and his family, the Kansas City Chiefs organization and our loyal listeners and share their concerns.”Discussing whether the Chiefs would discipline Tyreek Hill Chris Lindstrom Jersey , Kietzman said that Reid has never been big on discipline.“Andy Reid does not have a great record of fixing players,” Kietzman said on the air. “He doesn’t. Discipline is not his thing. It did not work out particularly well in his family life, and that needs to be added to this, as we’re talking about the Chiefs. He wasn’t real great at that either. He’s had a lot of things go bad on him, family and players. He is not good at fixing people. He is not good at discipline. That is not his strength. His strength is designing football plays.”Reid’s son, Garrett Reid http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-a...-kaleb-mcgary-jersey , died of a drug overdose at the Eagles’ training camp in 2012, when Reid was the Eagles’ head coach. Many who heard Kietzman’s statement interpreted it as a reference to Garrett’s death, but Kietzman denied that, saying he was referring to legal troubles Garrett and his brother had before Garrett died.“I never mentioned one word about the tragic death of Andy Reid’s son and quickly corrected a caller who did,” Kietzman wrote on Twitter. “I was talking about the owner’s record of ‘fixing’ players, the team’s record and Andy’s record. I was referencing the drug addiction and convictions for dealing drugs. When they served time and Reid hired them to work for his football teams Kendall Sheffield Jersey , it was no longer a private matter. But blaming a parent for the death of their child in these circumstances is unthinkable and reprehensible.”Kietzman’s bosses apparently didn’t buy that explanation. It is unclear whether he will ever be back on the air.
