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.

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.

Cardinals’ Carson Palmer will play in 2017: ‘I’m ready to get back to work’

Carson Palmer isn’t ready to call it a career yet.

After mulling his retirement, the Cardinals quarterback on Thursday informed team president Michael Bidwill he will play in 2017.

At this point, it’s unclear if the Cowboys want to keep Romo around as an extremely expensive backup, attempt to trade him, or release him.

“We don’t know anything,” Candice Romo said. “We know just as much as you guys, and for a type-A planner personality, it doesn’t bode well. And I’m sure when we do [know something], Tony will be the guy to tell you.”

Candice also isn’t sure if she would uproot her family to follow her husband somewhere else.

“We just don’t know,” Candice said. “There’s so many variables and things that can take place that my mom has always said, ‘You just don’t cross that bridge until you get there.’ And I just don’t really worry about it until it comes. We’re not really worried about it. We’re just going to see it as it comes.”

If this is the end of Romo’s football career, Candice joked he could be a D.J. or even an actor. It wouldn’t be the first time a retired athlete caught the acting bug, and seeing Romo on the Cheap Islanders Jerseys big screen would be interesting, to say the least.

The Romos already are parents to Hawkins, 4, and Rivers, 2.

Redskins franchise tag Kirk Cousins for second straight year

You like that new deal Kirk Cousins?

The quarterback’s agent, Mike McCartney, announced Tuesday the Redskins placed their franchise tag on the veteran quarterback for the second cosecutive year to keep him in Washington Wholesale Jerseys NFL another season.

Carter, 37, was the No. 7 overall pick by the 49ers in the 2001 NFL Draft. He played there for five seasons before going to Washington on a lucrative free-agent contract. He played there for another five years.

Carter continued to flourish after he signed with New England in 2011, earning his first and only Pro Bowl berth during a 10-sack campaign that was truncated by injury. Carter then played with Oakland (2012) before returning to the Patriots in 2013 to finish his NFL career.

Carter spent the 2015 season as a student assistant coach at his alma mater Cal.

The Dolphins are seeking a new assistant defensive line coach after Jim Washburn left the team following the end of the season.

With six junior quarterbacks having declared for the 2017 NFL Draft, the most ever, NFL teams won’t be passing on the position altogether, but many may be more patient USA Cheap Jerseys than in recent years.

Watson will be the primary storyline from a network programming standpoint. But I actually don’t think NFL teams are as divisive as some have made it seem. Some in the NFL are huge fans of Watson on and off the field.

Most I’ve spoken with like the majority of his game, but they have questions as to whether he’s worth a top 10 pick, and for now, I agree. He won’t check the boxes character/leadership-wise in the same way Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott and Marcus Mariota have in recent years.

We’re trying to make each other better

Williams also said the competition at receiver doesn’t come with “bad blood.” This is a group that works with Philip Rivers, who has four straight 4,000-yard seasons. Mike Williams played a pivotal role in Clemson’s national championship last season. Allen is coming off a torn ACL, and Inman is out until training camp after undergoing core surgery. Williams said all of them have the potential to be a No. 1 receiver.

“We’re trying to make each other better,” Tyrell Williams said. “I feel like we’re going to put up a lot of points.”

For Williams, it’s about building on the momentum he created the last two seasons. As a rookie, he made a statement in Week 16 with two catches for 90 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter against Kansas City. Last year, he took advantage of that opportunity to become a consistent big-play receiver. How consistent?

Williams was one of eight receivers with 19 catches of 20 yards or more last season. The others were T.Y. Hilton, Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, Amari Cooper, Beckham, Jordy Nelson and DeSean Jackson. While it might seem like an undrafted free agent from Western Oregon does not belong in the conversation, Williams doesn’t see it that way.

It’s far more important, it seems, to look good to the fans at a time that it means the absolute least. Not even the Panthers, including coach Ron Rivera, are all that concerned. The football-starved public appear to be the only ones going overboard about Benjamin.

Which is why those same people can be fed live Combine workouts, prime-time schedule release Cheap Jerseys Throwback shows, three days of the draft and five weeks of preseason games, and still beg for more.

Because they have the capacity to wag a finger at an NFL player for not being in shape in the middle of May, for a workout he could have completely skipped but did not.

To those people, we prescribe this: baseball every night, Stanley Cup Final next Monday, NBA Finals next Thursday.

Michael Bennett inspired by Chance the Rapper to donate 2017 endorsements

Michael Bennett has announced plans to donate all his endorsement money to help children in minority communities in 2017.

Bennett, who already does considerable work fighting childhood obesity through his organization, “The Bennett Foundation,” also called on athletes to use their stage and means to help make differences in communities throughout the country.

“I’m asking all professional athletes to join me by donating a portion of your endorsements this year to a cause of your choice,” Bennett said. “We can make a difference. It’s up to us to help plant seeds of hope and help fuel the future.”

“Well in all sincerity, Marshawn’s been in Canada,” Hendrickson said. “I’m due to see him this week. So he and I have not spoken about this at all. So it was the media who took the ball and kind ran with it. He’s one of the most unique guys I’ve ever been with in my life. Marshawn, it wouldn’t shock me in three days if he says, ‘Hey, I want to play.’ It wouldn’t shock me if he says, ‘Nah, I don’t know where this came from. I don’t want to play.’

Between Lynch’s endorsements and his company, Beast Mode, he isn’t hurting for cash. If Lynch does return, it would be for the love of the game, according to Hendrickson.

“He doesn’t spend any of the money he’s made. He’s got a lot of money,” Hendrickson said. “He does miss football, no question. He loves the game of football. He’s 30. But until I meet with him this week, you know, I don’t know what his mindset is. He’s the kind of guy Cheap Jerseys Zoom that can shift by the hour.”
