The Cardinals signed former Cowboys receiver Brice Butler (19), here making a catch against the Cards in the Hall of Fame game last August.

The Cardinals had lost a couple of wide receivers in free agency, but now they have added one.

Brice Butler, formerly of the Cowboys, signed a two-year contract Tuesday after the Cards saw John Brown (Ravens) and Jaron Brown (Seahawks) depart. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Butler had 90 yards receiving and a touchdown against the Cardinals on Monday Night Football in 2017.

It’s David Justice Jersey a great opportunity to come in and compete, Butler said.

Obviously Larry has been around for 14 or 15 seasons, so I won’t be the veteran in the room, but I’ve been around the league so I can help the Authentic Cory James Jersey young guys.

A 2013 seventh-round pick of the Oakland Raiders, Butler has 73 receptions for 1,177 yards and eight touchdowns in 61 career games.

You never want to be a one-year guy, Jones said. Me having a decent season last year, I never want to look back at the end of my career and say, ‘I had 17 sacks’ and then you kind of (fade) away. You want, after that one year, ‘He got better. It pushes me even harder. It makes me want to do even better.

That was part of the message for the children taking part in Jones’ first football camp. Jones said he hoped that it would grow and grow every year.

If so, it would follow Jones’ career arc since his trade to the Cardinals from New England.

He had 11 sacks in 2016 before his big season last year, a big year that came as an exclamation point following his signing of a rich, long-term contract extension. It’s not like he’s been unnoticed – he was voted in the top 30 in the NFL top 100, and received some all-pro votes – but he did find a younger teammate asking him recently about his lack of national recognition.

Tyler Lockett: I was ’75, 80 percent’ last season

Posted on by

The beleaguered offensive line and backfield took the brunt of the blame for last year’s offensive woes in Seattle.

A disappointing season from wide receiver Tyler Lockett certainly didn’t help matters.

The thing is, it doesn’t matter how you feel when you go out there, Lockett added, via the Seattle Times. If you go out there, it’s time to go. You can’t make excuses if you don’t get open. You can’t make excuses if you don’t catch the pass. If you’re out there, everybody expects you to do the same thing if you weren’t hurt.

By all accounts, Lockett won’t need to make any excuses Ryan Anderson Jersey for the upcoming season. Coaches and beat writers alike have noted how spry the 2015 third-round pick has looked in offseason practices.

As for the Devils, do they go with defense or offense at No. 17?What parts can they add to build around breakout star Taylor Hall?

Players are obligated to report any incident that would be a violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy, which reads:

Clubs and players are obligated to promptly report any matter that comes to their attention (through, for example, victim or witness reports, law enforcement, or media reports) that may constitute a violation of this Policy.

This obligation to report is broader than simply reporting an arrest; it requires reporting to the league any incident that comes to the club’s or player’s attention which, if the allegations were true, would constitute a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.

White Sox end 8-game skid, top A’s 6-4 to split doubleheader

Posted on by

Lucas Giolito was rolling, feeling as comfortable as he has all season. It was just what the White Sox needed.

Giolito pitched into the eighth inning before Xavier Cedeno worked out of a jam, and Chicago snapped an eight-game losing streak by beating the Oakland Athletics 6-4 Friday night to salvage a doubleheader split.

The White Sox bounced back after getting pounded 11-2 behind a pair of three-run homers by Franklin Barreto. They stopped their worst skid since a nine-game rut last July and ended Oakland’s season-high win streak at five.

Giolito (5-7) allowed four runs and seven hits in a rare home win. The 23-year-old right-hander struck out eight and walked two after going 1-4 with an 11.05 ERA in his first seven starts at Guaranteed Rate Field.

A lot more conviction in his pitches, manager Rick Renteria said.

Olson went deep for Oakland, giving the Athletics home runs in 23 consecutive road games — one shy of the modern day record set by Baltimore in 1996. But Chris Bassitt (0-3) got tagged for five runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Barreto’s big performance in the opener came after he hit a three-run drive in Wednesday’s romp at San Diego.

He connected against James Shields to cap a four-run second inning and off Luis Avilan in the eighth . Barreto’s first career multihomer game gave him a personal-best six RBI.

Secretly, I was hoping something special would happen. I want to be able to tell BabyGirl (we haven’t settled on a name yet) about the time we took her to her first baseball game, and this amazing thing happened. I wanted to tell her it was baseball’s way of welcoming her to the world. Silly, right? I don’t care. I want amazing for her. That will never change.

Through three innings, I thought Cardinals rookie Jack Flaherty just might deliver that amazing. He retired the first nine Phillies he faced with relative ease, striking out four in a row at one point. Could this fresh-faced rookie give BabyGirl a perfect game? A no-hitter, at least? I haven’t seen either in person yet. It was only the third inning, but I had hope.

Damn Rhys Hoskins. He ended that hope with a no-doubt home run with one out in the fourth inning. After the hiccup, Flaherty continued to roll through the Phillies, though, and by the time he was done, he had struck out 13 batters in 7 2/3 innings. It was an incredibly impressive performance for just his fourth start of the season and the ninth of his major-league career.

Zay Jones has to earn his way into Bills lineup

Posted on by

The Bills wide receiver corps one of the league’s thinner ones heading into training camp, which would seem to bode well for 2017 second-round pick Zay Jones’ chances of seeing a lot of playing time once September rolls around.
Men's Game Spencer Drango White Jersey: Road #66 NFL Cleveland Browns Nike
While that may be the case, General Manager Brandon Beane made it clear last week that Jones won’t be guaranteed anything this season. He had a quiet rookie season while dealing with a shoulder injury and missed offseason work after knee surgery, which Beane says leaves him with with work to do this summer.

They started contacting me … and the process just kept heating up and heating up until I’m walking out of a limo with 15 cameras on me trying to find a wife, he said.

Harbor made brief stops in New England, Detroit and New Orleans after spending three years with the Jaguars. The fourth-round draft pick from Missouri State started his career with Philadelphia.

It seemed doubtful that Julian Edelman didn’t actually know what happened last week when it came out he tested positive for a PED, but nobody else seems to know either — including the scientists testing him.

Some guys might get to this level and say, ‘Oh God, I haven’t Vincent Rey Authentic Jersey seen this.’ I’ve seen it all, just not to this extent. Just a little bit of a learning curve, but I’ll get there. I’m confident I’m making good progress.

Johnson led the NFL with 2,118 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns in 2016. But his impact was also felt in 2017 when a wrist injury kept him out of the lineup for 15 games.

Without Johnson, the Cardinals were No. 28 in the NFL in rushing touchdowns and No. 31 in yards per carry. The 26-year-old running back was brutally missed and now he’s asking the Cardinals to make sure they’re not without him in the future.

The end result was a 4-1 Yankees victory, this one climbing them to 26 games over.500 with a best-in-baseball 46-20 record that is the third best all-time after 66 games behind only the 2001 Seattle Mariners (52-14) Vegas Strong Womens Jersey and 1998 Yankees (49-17).

Titans visit police academy, shooting simulator to end minicamp

Posted on by

The Tennessee Titans canceled their last day of minicamp Thursday and instead made an unusual field trip: a visit to the Metro Police Training Academy in Nashville.
Men's Nike New York Giants #70 Patrick Omameh Limited Green Salute to Service Tank Top NFL Jersey
GM Jon Robinson and coach Mike Womens Miguel Montero Jersey Vrabel set up the visit, and coaches and players met officers, learned firearms safety and went to the shooting range.

The NFL is encouraging more outreach between teams and the community in the wake of several high-profile police shootings and the national anthem controversy, and Nashville police chief Steve Anderson praised the Tians for suggesting the visit.

The interaction between Titans players and our officers was exceptional, Anderson said (via Nashville’s WKRN). The conversations were relaxed, and it was clear that both groups had a good time being with each other. This was an outstanding idea by Jon Robinson and I am grateful that he brought it to us.

Coupled with the $9.341 million he was scheduled to make on the final year of his rookie deal, he’ll make $93.41 million over the next seven years.

The deal eclipses the previous big guard deal, the five-year, $66.5 million contract Andrew Norwell signed with the Jaguars earlier this offseason.

As FOX rules analyst (and former NFL V.P. of officiating) Mike Pereira said on Friday’s PFT Live (imagine that, a football show willing to talk about football rules), kickoff returns likely will increase under the new kickoff configuration, which is aimed at making the kickoff more like a punt. Chris Wormley Jersey The goal, as Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan in D.C. put it during a PFT visit to his show earlier this afternoon, could be to make the new kickoff play more like nicotine gum, with the league weaning itself from the kickoff return and, more importantly, preparing fans for the inevitable scrapping of the kickoff altogether.

Eagles ‘ Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz flew to Cleveland for Game 4 of the NBA Finals last week.

They were not there to cheer on the Cavaliers. No, they are not Warriors fans.

They were there on business. Sixers business. More specifically — LeBron James to the Sixers business.

Being owned by Comcast or Disney would, in theory, help YES Network negotiate carriage agreements with other service providers, and perhaps avoid the type of spat between Comcast and YES which led to a two-year blackout of the channel, before a deal was struck in 2017.

For Yankees fans, that means not having to worry about missing games for a team that is setting itself up to contend for a World Series title for years to come.

But wait, there’s more.

Aunt Carol isn’t just a former employee — she earned that ring by contributing to the Eagles’ Super Bowl run this offseason. In a profile on Doug Pederson written by Sports Illustrated ‘s Peter King, the Eagles coach credited longtime administrative assistant for inspiring the team’s 41-yard flea flicker touchdown pass from Nick Foles to Torrey Smith in the NFC Championship.

When I was here working with Andy, back then we would write the game plan quite literally up on the grease boards, Pederson said. And Carol was the one who would always type our game plan list into the computer. And so, every week I’d walk her through it, so she could understand the handwriting. She’d always look for one section of the game plan. ‘Is the flea flicker Joe Sakic Womens Jersey in?’ She just loved the flea-flicker. She loved the play, and I think she even loved the name. Flea-flicker. Every week, I’d say, ‘Oh, Carol. Sorry. It didn’t make the list this week. Maybe next week.’ Every week she’d ask, and I might say, ‘Yeah, it’s in this week, it’s gonna be great. We might call it this week!’ That went on for four years. Every week. Every week she’d ask. We never called it. Not one time.

According to Pederson, she texted him Artemi Panarin Jersey before the NFC Championship to congratulate him on getting through the Divisional Round and asked again about the flea flicker. Later in the week, he told her it was in the game plan.

Vita Vea already showing off his strength

Posted on by

Strict (sort of) limits apply to what teams can do during offseason workouts. Contact is prohibited but most observers are more confused than J.R. Smith (timely!) over what that exactly means.

Enough contact is permitted (or at least happening) in Tampa to allow coach Dirk Koetter to develop an admiration of 350-pound rookie defensive tackle Vita Vea.

And while the timeline for the enactment of those laws — or even whether they are likely — is unclear at the moment, what is known is that there is plenty that still needs to be done before the NFL will feel comfortable cashing in on the looser sports betting economy that is almost sure to come in America.

According to the report, Herndon crashed into a car driven by a 76-year-old man, who suffered an arm injury. It is not clear whether Herndon was injured.

The Jets have confirmed they are aware of the arrest but offered no other comment.

A 6-foot-4, 253-pound tight end, Herndon had 40 catches for 477 yards and four touchdowns last season for the Hurricanes. The Jets took him with the 107th overall pick in this year’s draft.

If one play went differently in the AFC Championship Game, the Jacksonville Jaguars would have made the Super Bowl last year, mostly on the strength of their defense. Ramsey is a game-changer in a way that very few players ever are, much less at 23 years old.

If you believe that Patrick Mahomes should be on this list, I won’t argue. Instead, though, I chose Kareem Hunt, who actually played a significant amount as a rookie last year.

As a third-round pick out of Toledo, it’s hard to claim that anyone knew that Hunt was going to lead the league in rushing yards as a rookie. For the NFL’s standards, the Chiefs run a fairly option-friendly system, which is set up to spring tailbacks, quarterbacks and even tight ends at times. That certainly helped push up Hunt’s numbers, but the sheer volume of 325 touches in a season cannot be understated.

Burly Marlins first baseman Justin Bour is not fleet of foot but he legged out a one-out double that resulted in the Marlins’ second run in the sixth.

Padres: LHP Joey Lucchesi, sidelined because of a strained right hip, continues to make progress toward a return and could make a minor league rehab assignment late next week.

Royals: RF Jorge Soler was out of the lineup with a bruised left toe, Yost said. Soler left Friday’s game after fouling a ball off his foot. X-rays taken Friday night were negative.

Blue Jays: 3B prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will miss at least four weeks because of a strained patellar tendon in his left knee. Guerrero Jr. has 11 home runs and 55 RBI in 53 games at Double-A New Hampshire this season. … 2B Devon Travis (right knee) sat for the second straight game. … RHP Marcus Stroman (shoulder) is set to pitch again Wednesday, but the location for his outing has not been determined. Stroman pitched a three-inning simulated game at Toronto’s spring training facility in Florida on Friday.

Technically speaking, a Grade 2 (moderate) sprain is a partial tearing of the ligament, whereas a Grade 3 sprain represents a complete tear. The amount of damage to the ligament in a Grade 2 sprain or partial tear can vary widely. When it comes to the UCL a complex ligament composed of several different bands the location of the tear within the tissue and the quality of the tissue also can be factors for consideration. The injury does not have to be a complete tear of the ligament to require surgery; if an athlete continues to experience discomfort and is unable to perform at a competitive level, surgery becomes more likely.

When a blowout UCL injury occurs, it is clearly serious. The Cole Hamels Youth Jersey pitcher grabs his elbow in obvious pain, typically after making an errant throw, and clinical examination and imaging tests serve to confirm what the thrower already senses that surgery is imminent. However, this mechanism of injury is relatively rare.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski calls trade rumors ‘fake news’

Posted on by

Rob Gronkowski thinks reports he was going to be traded by the Patriots were fake news.
Women's Barry Bonds Replica White Majestic Jersey: MLB Pittsburgh Pirates #24 Cool Base Fashion
Multiple reports surfaced Friday saying New England was prepared to deal the 29-year-old tight end. A team spokesperson denied the reports and there was zero truth to the rumors, according to NBC Sports Boston.

The injury caused him problems for years and even led to his decision to become a switch-hitter his vision problems made reading curveballs off righties problematic. Years later, he was diagnosed with tuberculosis, though he didn’t know that while playing all seven games of the 1958 World Series with the disease. He was expected to retire, but he went on to play for another five years.

Ten or 11 years ago, Carl Davis Jersey I was in St. Louis to cover a season-opening series. I had never worked a game there, and the day before the opener I was on the field during a workout. There was Schoendienst, in uniform, already in his mid-80s and still swinging a bat and pounding out grounders for infield practice. I knew he was still a coach for the team it was a title he never relinquished but to see him still that active, at that age, was unforgettable. Of course, no one around Busch Stadium seemed to think much about it. It was just Red.

Just a fun-loving guy, man, like a gentle giant, former Bulls running back Keith Williams told the Times. But on that field, he took care of business.

Selected by the Patriots in the fourth round of the 2001 NFL Draft, Jones played sparingly for the championship team that beat the Rams in the Super Bowl that season. Jones started 11 games the next season, but underwent double knee surgery in the offseason, and was sidelined for 2003.

According to the Times, while on the inactive list Authentic Michael Stone Jersey Jones was arrested for allegedly throwing scalding water on his houseguest and administrative assistant. The Patriots released him five days later.

Herzlich is correct about this much: Discussions about the anthem protests are fascinating inside NFL locker rooms.

Posted on by

Herzlich has a fair point here, but some 20 months after Colin Kaepernick first sat during the anthem in the 2016 preseason, and with the NFL still allowing players to protest (they can stay in the locker room without penalty this season), Herzlich’s suggestion points to one of the larger problems here. The messaging battle was lost long before Trump even cared about the issue. While players have said, repeatedly, that the protests were about myriad issues and not against the flag, the anthem or the military specifically, millions of Americans saw it differently and aren’t open to changing their mind anytime soon.
Women's Limited Vinny Curry White Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Road #97 NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Nike
Ryan Hewitt Womens Jersey The flag is too personal to too many. The anthem is too much of a touchstone to mess with. If the goal was to create a reaction, it worked. If it was to create a meaningful conversation with the so-called other side, it was a failure. It was perfect for a political opportunist such as Trump. It so riles up his base that every time the issue is about to die out, he does what he can to keep in the news. (Bumbling NFL owners usually help him on that.) This thing is gold for Trump.

These are diverse places. People from all backgrounds, all parts of the country, all perspectives. It’s why there are some players who are willing to take a knee. There are others that would never do it. They’ve all tried to convince the other to listen. It’s usually pretty thoughtful. The one thing that has rung out is that when challenged by the president, most notably prior to week four of Womens Jersey the 2017 season, the league rallies and supports each other’s opinions. About the only thing they all agree on is the right to disagree.
