Josh Rosen: Sam Bradford helping me out a ton

Word from Arizona at the end of the team’s offseason program was that rookie Josh Rosen has done well, but that Sam Bradford remains the likely choice to start at quarterback for the Cardinals come September.

Trying to keep that spot on the depth chart hasn’t gotten in the way Cheap Jerseys Authentic of Bradford aiding Rosen’s transition to the professional level, however. Bradford told Rosen after the draft that he would be an open book for the first-round pick and Rosen said Bradford’s been true to his word.

Rosen said during minicamp that Bradford has been helping me out a ton and that he’ll return the favor any way he can during his rookie season.

Who could go remains the biggest question: A fair amount of the Blue Jays’ veteran players are underperforming, and their rotation, while young and talented, hasn’t pitched up to snuff this season.

If Donaldson returns strong following his DL stint, he could bring back a fair amount of young talent. Letting him walk as a free agent would be a mistake, especially with the heir apparent in Vlad Jr. looming.

Turner signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and spent most of the season on the practice squad. Turner was promoted to the active roster in November and caught nine passes for 126 yards in four games. He was out of the league last year after being waived by the Eagles in early September.

With Turner gone, the Saints have 12 wide receivers on the roster Cheap Jerseys China Paypal while West gives them seven running backs.

There’s a long way to go to rebuild the Carolina Hurricanes into a contending hockey team, but they took a nice step in the right direction on Saturday.

The hockey world has had 24 hours to digest that five-player blockbuster trade on the second day of the 2018 NHL Draft — one that included defenseman Dougie Hamilton heading to the east coast once again and defenseman Noah Hanifin heading to Cow Town.

The verdict? That we won’t know for some time yet (as with any trade in its immediate infancy), but for a Hurricanes team desperate for a sheet of ice in the playoffs, the move certainly turned their aim in that direction.

Dak: Cowboys plan on ‘surprising a lot of people’ in ’18

The Cowboys offseason overhaul has some Dallas fans questioning the makeup of the team they’ll be rooting for come September.

Quarterback Dak Prescott, however, isn’t worried.

They signed Teddy Bridgewater who, by all accounts is having a really good offseason. And probably better, I think, at least in terms of consistency, than what we’re talking about with Darnold. But I think, at least, they’re seeing glimpses of things they were hoping Cheap Jerseys Direct Coupon Code to see, that they never saw, obviously, in [Christian Hackenberg].

Top receiver Adam Thielen continues to get better and is coming off a 1,276-yard Pro Bowl season, while fellow starter Stefon Diggs—who scored eight touchdowns in the 2017 regular season before playing a heroic role in the playoffs—should only continue to improve as well at the age of 24. 

Philadelphia had only 2,000 seats two years ago when it hosted the draft but drew 250,000 to the three-day outdoor event. AT&T Stadium had seating for 25,000 this year and had a capacity of 108,000 for the Draft Experience outside the stadium.

Ascend Amphitheater has room for 6,800 with 2,300 fixed seats and seating for 4,500 on the lawn.

Owens’ absence will dominate HOF weekend While the Hall of Fame will say, and has said, that it will focus on the Class of 2018 inductees who will be there, that is impossible. Owens, by skipping the event, became the biggest story of the weekend. Owens’ critics will happily point out that was probably his goal.

That raises the question of whether Hackenberg will ever play in an NFL game. He never got on the field for the Jets and lasted only a few weeks of the offseason with the Raiders.

If you’re the one person asking questions, you might not get put on Cheap Jerseys From USA appearances, Wilkins said. You might get pushed back in the formations — meaning, losing a plum position at the front of a performance.

Nolan Teasley was promoted to fill Morgan’s spot as Director of Pro Personnel last month.

Answer that. It’s an underlying issue. There are black and brown soldiers that fight in the military as well who feel that taking a knee, bringing attention to police-involved shootings is something that this White House should deal with, Ryan said.

Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. arrested in suspected burglary

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. spent five hours in jail last week after being arrested on suspicion of burglary, a charge his representative says was due to an over-reactive neighbor.

Winslow, 34, is the son of NFL Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow. He played in the NFL for nine seasons with the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots Cheap Jerseys In US and New York Jets. His best season was in 2007 with the Browns, when he caught 82 passes for 1,106 yards and five touchdowns and was selected to the Pro Bowl.

Winslow hasn’t played since 2013, but has reportedly been interested in making a comeback each of the past two seasons.

Six months later, Beckham is back, Engram has come closer to emerging, Barkley is the odds-on favorite to win Offensive Rookie of the Year as the Giants’ starting running back, Shepard is healthy again and Marshall has been replaced by free-agent addition Cody Latimer, who is much younger and has the potential to become a solid starter. 

Brady said that while he’d play until he was 43 or 45 as long as I’m still loving it, that he can feel his family life pulling him into another life chapter — one he’s growing increasingly eager to enter. The five-time Super Bowl champ and three-time NFL MVP has has three children, two with wife Gisele Bundchen and an older child with actress Bridget Moynahan.

I do have kids that I love, Brady said, and I don’t want to be a dad that’s not there driving my kids to their games. I think my kids have brought a great perspective in my life, because kids just want the attention. You better be there and be available to them, or else Cheap Jerseys MLB they’re going to look back on their life and go, ‘Dad didn’t really care that much.’

Damon Harrison wants to hit Saquon Barkley to see what he’s made of

Attendance at the minicamps being held by most of the teams in the league this week is mandatory for players under contract, but the on-field work isn’t too different from voluntary OTAs.

Shepley was drafted fifth overall in the Canadian Football League draft by Saskatchewan, but his dream is to play in the NFL. He signed with the Jets after the draft because he felt this was his best opportunity to make a roster after the Jets did not draft any linemen.

The 23-year-old hopes to have a long career in football. But when it ends, he now has a fallback career in acting.

It was certainly really cool, Shepley said. I can’t imagine being a full-time actor and being a full-time football player. The days I was there, even as an extra, I was there from 7 a.m. to midnight. Where am I going to work out? I’d have no time to train. It’s definitely something I’d like to pursue after football, whenever that may be.

Like when the United States government laughed at Doctor Evil for requesting $1 million, Nick Hardwick took to Twitter to expose his inexperienced blackmailer for asking for pocket change.

Wacha threw 111 pitches and struck out eight batters in his eight plus innings on the mound. He walked just two hitters in St. Louis’ 5-0 win.

Wacha set the Pirates down in order through the first four innings but he faced trouble in the fifth. He walked Francisco Cervelli with one out in the frame and followed with another free pass to Gregory Polanco two batters later. But, Wacha induced a groundout from Sean Rodriguez to end the threat.

Athletics starter Sean Manaea threw the first no-hitter of the season against the Red Sox in mid-April while Mariners pitcher James Paxton did not allow a hit to the Blue Jays in early May.

Dodgers starter Walker Buehler and three relievers also combined for a no-hitter against the Padres May 4.

You don’t know me personally and nobody hired me to look into you. Nor did I go out looking to burn you, the letter reads. It is just your bad luck that I stumbled across your misadventures while working a job around San Diego. I then put in more time than I probably should have looking into your life. Frankly, I am ready to forget all about you and let you get on with your life.

GMFB revisits wild ending to Super Bowl XLIX

GMFB revisits wild ending to Super Bowl XLIX NFL Highlights • Jun 7, 2018, 12:56 AM NFL Network’s Kay Adams recounts the wild ending to Super Bowl XLIX.

Malcolm Jenkins uses signs, not words, in a powerful response to President Donald Trump

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins has been an outspoken advocate for social justice, but he made one of his most powerful statements Wednesday without saying anything at all.

Pro Football Reference deemed only a handful of players to be more valuable to the Cleveland Browns than running back Duke Johnson was in 2017. That might not mean a whole lot considering that Cleveland didn’t win a game, but the fact is Johnson went over 1,000 yards from scrimmage despite being on the field just 53 percent of the time. 

The 24-year-old is one of the best pass-catching backs in the league—only Le’Veon Bell has more catches and receiving yards the last two years—but 66 running backs and 35 Browns players are paid more than him. 

That’ll likely change when his rookie contract expires next offseason. 

Key players Trevor Williams, Desmond King, Austin Ekeler and Kyle Emanuel gave the Los Angeles Chargers tremendous bang for less than a million bucks each in 2017, but the much more handsomely paid Joey Bosa is still the team’s most underpaid member. 

A mere 28 games into his career, the 2016 Defensive Rookie of the Year has 23 sacks, four forced fumbles, 111 tackles and a Pro Bowl nod. Still only 22 years old, he looks as though he’s on the verge of becoming one of the most dominant defensive players in the game. 

And while he’s not hurting for cash with an average annual salary of $6.5 million, 18 4-3 defensive ends make more than that. 

Unless the Los Angeles Rams sign defensive defensive lineman Aaron Donald to a blockbuster extension this summer, the league’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year will make less money than 68 other defensive players in 2018.

Griffin was named Offensive Player (not rookie) of the Week after his first NFL game.

This one’s easy. What doesn’t show up in Luck’s stats is the fact that he took one of the worst teams in franchise history to the playoffs in his first season. If it’s stats you want, fine. Luck broke NFL rookie records of passing yards, wins by a No. 1 overall QB and game-winning drives.

Bortles technically sat at first, but after relieving Chad Henne — Henne was so bad he left Jacksonville no choice — in the second half of a Week 3 blowout loss to the Colts, Bortles was named starter for the rest of the season.

Despite predictably dismal initial numbers on a team with few offensive weapons and a dreadful line, Bortles proved one key component of success for an NFL quarterback: durability. He enters 2018 still sticking as the Jaguars’ starting quarterback.

The 29-year-old Green has cracked 200 receiving yards just once in his seven-year career. In seven of the last eight seasons, two Chargers tight ends have eclipsed 200 receiving yards. Unless the team brings back Gates, Green will receive a drastic increase in playing time and targets, something we have no evidence he can handle.

The Rams defensive line, with the notable pairing of Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, will be discussed early and often this season, but their outside linebacker situation is just as interesting—for the opposite reason. Their top veteran pass-rushers are Matt Longacre, Samson Ebukam and Ejuan Price.

Together, that trio has 7.5 career sacks. Though it sat out long stretches of the draft, Los Angeles added fifth-rounder Ogbonnia Okoronkwo and sixth-rounder Trevon Young to the unit. Since 2010, only three players picked outside the top 150 have recorded five or more sacks in their rookie seasons: Jonathan Newsome, Chris Jones and Pernell McPhee.

Jonathan Allen’s top offseason priority is staying healthy

Last year Washington used its first-round draft pick on defensive end Jonathan Allen, and he earned a starting job from Day One, but he didn’t do much as Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys a rookie: Allen played just five games before suffering a season-ending foot injury, and he finished his rookie year with just one sack.

This year, the top priority for Allen is staying healthy.

Clicker Consulting: This is where we offer free advice to sportscasting community, which we are sure the recipients all appreciate. For WFAN’s Boomer and Gio to be at its best, it needs Gregg Giannotti to lead the show more and not Boomer Esiason. Whatever you want to say about Craig Carton, he knew how to drive a show, which allowed Esiason to work off of him as a big name with real affection for multiple sports. Esiason sort of assumed the lead spot when Carton was exiled after his arrest and update guy Jerry Recco filled in.

However, now FAN should have Giannotti run the show, because he is the more talented radio personality, knowing where to take the program. The ratings with Giannotti replacing Carton have not been great so far, which could be for a variety of reasons and not necessarily the show’s quality. But for the program to grow,Giannotti needs to be the starting quarterback.

Tramaine Brock has a chance to be part of the plan at cornerback for the Broncos as they move on without Aqib Talib this season and that alone probably feels like a step up from last year.

Brock was released by the 49ers after a domestic violence arrest and signed by the Seahawks after charges were dropped in August. He was then traded to the Vikings two weeks later, leaving little time with his new team before the start of a season that saw him play just 51 defensive snaps.

That was a steep comedown from two years as a starter for the 49ers, but it didn’t shake Brock’s confidence in his own ability. Brock signed with the Broncos this offseason and said recently that Denver is “going to get a good player” out of the deal. Coach Vance Joseph feels the same way.

“I know what he can do,” Joseph said, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “That was a loaded cornerback room starter with San Francisco and played at a high level. No injuries. I mean, he’s still fairly young, so why can’t he play? … We’re expecting him to get back to his San Francisco form.”
