Rex Ryan’s next job Two NFL partners interested in fired Bills coach for TV

FOX Sports is committed to bringing viewers the most unique and well-informed perspectives in sports and will always remain open to new voices who can elevate our coverage, Fox spokeswoman Anne Pennington told Sporting News in a statement.

The perpetrator was Bill Cowher of CBS’ The NFL Today. The victim was fired Bills coach Rex Ryan. The former Super Bowl-winning Steelers coach may have put the final nail in the coffin of Ryan’s NFL coaching career.

The award for worst hot take of the playoffs goes to Colin Cowherd, host of FS1’s The Herd, who actually wondered whether Brady’s starting job was in danger.

Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated reports that ESPN is canceling it’s long-running Sunday morning show The Sports Reporters in May after nearly 30 years on the air.

ESPN will replace it with E:60 and Outside the Lines, Deitsch writes.

The best thing the Steelers did on their scoring drive towards the end of the third quarter was eat up clock four minutes and 18 seconds, to be exact. Le’Veon Bell scored from eight yards out Cheap Jerseys Make Your Own and again made Miami pay for a turnover. 30-6, Steelers.

Matt Moore threw his first interception of the game with a terrible read Cheap Jerseys Kids on Miami’s first play of its second possession in the second half. Moore was picked off by Ryan Shazier, who undercut the receiver’s crossing route in zone coverage. Moore should have seen it. Instead, Pittsburgh took over on Miami’s 25-yard line after a 10-yard return.

Seahawks add return specialist Devin Hester to playoff roster

The Seahawks needed a replacement for injured receiver Tyler Lockett and found one in the NFL’s most prolific return man.

Devin Hester, who was released by the Ravens last month, will sign with the Seahawks for their playoff run, according to Fox Sports.

Hester, 34, holds the all-time NFL record with 20 returns for scores, most all-time punt returns (14) and is tied for the most returns for a touchdown in a season (six). A second-round pick of the Bears in 2006, Hester spent his first eight seasons in Chicago.

Jones’ attorney said in court Tuesday morning that his client vehemently denies the accusations, the Enquirer reported. A judge set his bond at $37,500.

The police report said Jones allegedly assaulted a man followed by turbulent behavior that included pulling away from officers, kicking, head-butting and refusing to enter a police car.

The 33-year-old Jones has a lengthy history of arrests, mostly from early in his career. The NFL suspended him for the entire 2007 season and six games in 2008 for various off-field incidents.

The Astros are wise to invest in their infield, because the majors’ top Cheap Jerseys In Canada two qualified pitchers at inducing ground balls this season have been Dallas Keuchel (67.4 percent) Cheap Jerseys In UK and Lance McCullers (61.7). With batters focused on launch angle, it’s easy to see how keeping the ball on the ground leads to success from a pitcher’s standpoint. Those guys are a combined 15-1 for the best team in baseball.

ESPN analyst Louis Riddick will interview for 49ers’ GM job, report says

Over the past four seasons, Louis Riddick has handled increasingly high-profile roles in ESPN’s NFL coverage. Impressive as his television work has been, he apparently hasn’t left his previous life as an NFL executive behind.

Riddick will interview next week for the San Francisco 49ers’ general manager opening, ESPN colleague Adam Schefter reported Tuesday.

Before joining ESPN as a front office insider in May 2013, Riddick held scouting and personnel roles with the Redskins and Eagles for more than a decade. He most recently served as Philadelphia’s director of pro personnel from 2010-13.

The NFL coaching carousel is in full swing now, and Kelly should have plenty of options, although becoming a head coach might be a stretch.

The Bills, Broncos, Jaguars, Rams, Chargers and Niners are without head coaches. Numerous offensive coordinators Kyle Shanahan (Falcons), Josh McDaniels (Patriots), Harold Goodwin (Cardinals) and Sean McVay (Redskins) are candidates for those head-coaching spots, and Kelly could find a OC job with a contender next season.

Kelly is also open to returning to college, where he enjoyed success at Cheap Jerseys Direct Oregon, going 46-7 from 2009-12. A new college job may just fall in his lap.

According to a different report from Fox Sports, a couple of Cheap Jerseys From China NHL schools are contemplating making coaching changes if they could land Kelly.

Broncos’ Trevor Siemian to have shoulder surgery 3 months after injury

The shoulder injury that knocked Trevor Siemian out of the Broncos’ Week 4 game against the Buccaneers never quite went away.

The quarterback will have surgery Thursday on his left (non-throwing) shoulder to address lingering issues from the separation, but is expected to recover in time for offseason workouts this spring, KUSA reported Tuesday.

Marshall has made over $73 million in his 11 NFL seasons, according to Spotrac.com. Coming off 788 receiving yards and three touchdowns, his worst statistical season since 2006, Marshall is set to make $7.5 million next season, although none of the money is guaranteed.

With the Jets (5-11) having bigger issues than his contract, Marshall wants the Jets to do whatever it takes to win games.

I’m tired of going home right after the season. I’m tired of watching the playoffs on my couch, Marshall said. I’m tired of it. And it’s just a frustrating year. It’s been a frustrating career from that aspect, and hopefully things change moving forward.

Marshall, who said he wants to keep playing until he’s 38 or 39, admitted he was Cheap Jerseys Cn playing hurt since Week 2 when he suffered an MCL sprain and a foot injury.

But Marshall refused to use the injuries as an excuse for his down year, saying, I’m Cheap Jerseys China extremely confident that I’m still an elite receiver.

John Harbaugh admits Ravens need to add another running back

The upcoming NFL Draft has one of the deepest running back classes in years and the Ravens could be in the market.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh acknowledged the need to add a running back to bolster a ground game that ranked 28th in the league this season.

We need another back. What type of back that is I think were talking about it, Harbaugh told reporters. We have a pretty good idea of the type of back we want to add. Those two guys and another one is what we need.

Smith claimed he can run a 4.5 40-yard dash, and that he would have been able to help the Cowboys in the playoffs.

I think I could have played and competed at an elite level, Smith said, but with us coming together and realizing the situation with the nerve coming back, we’re going to be patient and trust God’s timing.

The Cowboys finished the regular season as the top seed in the NFC. They will get a first-round bye in the postseason.

Smith will not help the team this year, but Cheap Jerseys Baseball his presence could help Dallas get back into the postseason next season.

Matt Carpenter, a three-time All-Star in the prime of his career, is batting .216 this season but still sports a nice .351 on-base percentage, thanks to a top-10 walk rate. An Cheap Jerseys Basketball everyday player has posted an average that low and an OBP that high over a full season just once the incomparable Desi Relaford in 2000. Moved to first base this year, Carpenter has also been hitting in the three-hole, but his production hasn’t merited it. Only last week was he moved up to the No. 2 spot in the batting order.

You can already see the culture Quinn has worked to build reflected in the rookies.

They’re not intending to use free agent Latavius Murray and rookie Dalvin Cook the way they used Peterson. They both have skills in the passing game that Peterson only occasionally did. And, of course, those two are not intended to be workhorses on the ground, not with what the Vikings want to do.

How Shurmur plans to use Murray, Cook, returnee Jerick McKinnon and others, and in what combinations, should be creative and, likely, liberating for longtime observers. Cook in particular is the future, and at his best, he can do it all.

“It doesn’t matter how they got their butts into that room,” Quinn said. “Here on a tryout, here as an undrafted free agent or a draft pick, we’re looking for great competitors and guys who want to totally buy into the team concept that’s part of our locker room, our team.”

You can already see the culture Quinn has worked to build reflected in the rookies. It hasn’t taken long for them to pick up his catchphrases.

“A lot of people don’t make it this far, and I’m just happy to be able to be here and just be a part of a brotherhood,” rookie first-rounder Takk McKinley said during rookie minicamp. “For me, being a brother, the brotherhood — you can say it all you want, but you’ve got to prove it to the guys.”

That brotherhood and the standard Quinn and the rest Cheap Jerseys Kids of the coaching staff have set are central to the team’s success, almost as much as the fast and physical play.

“It’s brotherhood,” Manuel said. “And the thing that we always talk Cheap Jerseys NY Giants about — if I can watch tape and I don’t see my brother straining the same way I am … my brother, you know what, am I sacrificing my life for your life right now? I don’t know, as I look at that play. I could have probably done more.”

Rivers must be pleased with the new tools he’ll get to play with in 2017.

Alex Smith won’t be around forever, and he already limits the Chiefs offense with his risk-averse game. Trading up 17 draft spots to get Patrick Mahomes II was a gamble, but Mahomes’ big arm and fearless play should open up a lot more options in the passing game. He’ll get time to sit and learn under Andy Reid, which is pretty much the best situation a young quarterback could ask for.

Rivers must be pleased with the new tools he’ll get to play with in 2017. While Swiss Army Knife tailback Danny Woodhead left in free agency, the Chargers replaced that void with All-American wideout Mike Williams. They also landed two of the draft’s best blockers, Forrest Lamp and Dan Feeney. Pair that group with healthy seasons from Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon, and you’ve got the recipe for one of the league’s most explosive offenses.

The Bears, in their quest to be the new Browns, signed an underwhelming quarterback to a deal potentially worth $45 million before trading a handful of draft picks to move up one spot and select a passer with only one season of starting experience under his belt. But hey: If Chicago thinks Trubisky is the guy, then he’s worth the overpay.

Cincinnati had a rough run in free agency, losing two of Cheap Gaelic Jerseys its most important linemen in the process. However, letting Whitworth leave may have been financially prudent. The stalwart left tackle will be 36 this season, and while his best seasons have come in his 30s, $15 million Cheap Jarome Iginla Jerseys in guarantees is still a risk for a blocker whose play could drop off in 2017.

somebody owed Kaepernick an “I’m sorry” about how casually his reputation was being dragged through the mud.

For an organization that had spent at least three years burning bridges at an alarming rate, Lynch’s handling of the most volatile subject in front of them is a long-overdue positive.

If nothing else, somebody owed Kaepernick an “I’m sorry” about how casually his reputation was being dragged through the mud. It wasn’t necessarily the 49ers or Lynch who owed it, but they gave it anyway.

Lynch has done a lot right in a short period of time. It’s a welcome change in an offseason too many people let turn ugly. It’s a welcome change for Kaepernick … and a welcome change for the 49ers.

Smart teams don’t give up good players just because they scrap and curse each other out, or because they push buttons they usually go un-pushed.

The Seahawks are a smart team. Their roster is composed of smart players who don’t get told to stop being smart in public or private, on or off the field.

Instead of figuring out why they’re like that, ask why all the others are not.

Belichick is correct when he says NFL teams’ medical staffs, not Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys coaches, are primarily responsible for injury management. Former Rams coach Jeff Fisher expressed that in 2015. Panthers coach Ron Rivera last year took it personally when a reporter questioned Cheap Epl Jerseys his team’s treatment of star QB Cam Newton.

“When it comes to the (concussion) protocol stuff, I don’t know what that is,” Rivera said. “I follow what I’m told by the doctors and the trainers. It was explained to me afterwards, and after it was explained to me, I told you what was explained to me.”

Marcus Mariota reveals why he didn’t pound beers, hold catfish at Predators games

Marcus Mariota and members of the Titans have made sure they were on hand to support the Predators as they battle to win their first Stanley Cup, but Mariota didn’t participate in all the tomfoolery.

They appeared with the home crowd during Game 3 of Nashville’s series against the Ducks, then later traveled to Pittsburgh to face the Penguins during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals.

The Titans were seen chugging beers after a hearty toast during the Ducks game, and in Pittsburgh they got in on the catfish phenomena by holding up the slimy fish while slamming brews.

Big Ben has one losing season as a starter for his career. He’s putting up better numbers on the back half of his career, and the two Super Bowl rings will put him in the Hall of Fame. Is there a quarterback you trust more outside of the next two?

Rodgers carried the Packers to the NFC championship Real Madrid Cheap Jerseys game after a 4-6 start, and he put up a league-best 40 TDs in the process. He’s the most talented quarterback in the league, and the two-time MVP is held to a higher standard as a result.

There’s no argument at this point. Brady is coming off a fifth Super Bowl win and seems to get better with age. He has the numbers, the rings and a team that will be picked by a lot of publications to repeat for the first time since New England did it in 2003-04.

Flacco scale: Five Flaccos. It would be seven Flaccos had Tampa Bay Lightning Cheap Jerseys Flacco not knocked Brady out of the playoffs those other two times.

Chargers’ small L.A. venue translates into big ticket prices

If this is NFL Econ 101, then the Los Angeles Chargers, playing in what they call an “intimate” 30,000-seat soccer stadium, have nailed the supply part of the equation.

The StubHub Center’s least expensive season tickets for 2017 will go for $700, or $70 per game for 10 games (including preseason). The most expensive tickets will sell for $3,750 ($375 per game).

Abruzzo, a Democrat from Boynton Beach, introduced HB 839 in the Florida legislature earlier this week. If approved, it would establish a new license plate promoting and benefitting the Dan Marino Foundation, which was established in 1992 by the Hall of Fame quarterback after his son Michael was diagnosed with autism.

The foundation is dedicated to assisting young adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. The centerpiece of the effort is Marino Campus, which provides post-secondary training and certificate programs. “Marino Campus” would appear on the proposed Florida tags, according to the text of the bill.

The state already offers 125 specialty tags, and Floridapolitics.com notes the Marino plate isn’t the only potential new addition for 2017. Legislators also will consider a measure to issue a tag honoring President Ronald Reagan.

Belle was nearly the offensive equivalent, leading baseball in homers, doubles, RBI, total bases and slugging percentage. It’s widely speculated that Belle’s surly attitude was the reason he only finished second in MVP voting despite besting winner Mo Vaughn in nearly every statistical category. Belle fell short again in a six-game World Series, as Maddux helped the city Cheap Heat Jerseys of Atlanta win its only major pro sports title.
