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.

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.

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.

The Colts brought in a new defensive back on Tuesday.

Posted on by

The team announced that they have signed cornerback Channing Stribling to the 90-man roster while safety Michael Cirino has been waived with an injury designation. If Cirino goes unclaimed, he will revert to injured reserve in Indianapolis.

Stribling was undrafted out of Michigan last year and signed with the Browns. He opened last season on their practice squad, spent some time on the Colts’ auxillary and ended the year with the 49ers. He was dropped by the Niners to make room for this year’s crop of undrafted rookies.

He had watched Perez’s film from Southwestern and, despite some questions about arm strength, came away intrigued. During the recruiting process, he quizzed Perez about his hobbies, but never thought to ask if he had played high school football. It happened to come up in a story Perez was telling.

‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a second. You didn’t play high school football?’ May, the quarterbacks coach at A&M Commerce, recalled.

Are we really gonna take a guy who never played high school football?

It could’ve been done together to figure out what we can do to move forward and what would be best for the players, Smith said. The whole reason guys were protesting was to draw awareness to something. To take that away and be, ‘Hey, don’t do that anymore,’ like you’re anti-American or something like people try to paint — it is very frustrating to continue to see that false narrative.

So Smith doesn’t think the issue is over, as much as the NFL would like it to be.

You’re going to see reactive things from guys, probably, Smith said. I don’t know. Maybe, maybe not. But if you do it, you see it, it takes away even further from what the message was, which was against police brutality, which evolved to the criminal justice system and a lot of other inequalities that we have in this country.

J.J. Watt Reportedly to Pay for Funerals of Victims of Texas HS Shooting

This was not the first time Kraft expressed disapproval about Trump in regard to the national anthem. In September 2017, Kraft wrote, I am deeply disappointed by the tone of the comments made by the President regarding players who engage in a form of protest during the national anthem. Attorneys for Kaepernick likely asked Kraft about the October meeting and whether owners agreed that the longer Kaepernick stayed out the NFL, the less likely Trump would seek to harm the NFL and its owners. If Kraft indicated that owners engaged in such discussions, Kaepernick’s grievance would be strengthened.

Kraft’s advocacy for Meek Mill Kraft was a vocal advocate for Meek Mill while the rapper was incarcerated in a Pennsylvania prison for a probation violation. Last month Kraft even visited Mill in prison.

He’s a good horse, there’s not doubt about that, Servis said. We are going to find out now if he is a great horse.

But he said it like a Anthony Rendon Authentic Jersey man who already knew the answer.
Game Mens Gaylord Perry Jersey
A glance at the odds following the draw for post positions confirmed that notion in capital letters. The track oddsmaker made him a staggering 1-2 favorite.

Only Good Magic at 3-1 was a single-digit choice. After that, the odds start at 12-1 on Quip and roll to as high as 30-1 on Sporting Chance or Diamond King. It may or may not be a competitive race for these horses, but it sure offers one hell of a smorgasbord for聽those who will bet them.

And beyond all that betting temptation, there is the mud.

Kevin Jackson: Kaepernick took a knee for the wrong cause

To date, the NFL’s Personal Conduct policy assigns no fine to teams of players who engage in domestic violence, crimes involving firearms, driving under the influence (DUI), illegal drug usage and other crimes. I look forward to your thoughts about whether teams should be assessed a fine for these personal actions in the same way that you have for the expression of free speech during the National Anthem.

But there’s a better link for Evans in fellow former Alabama star and three-time Pro Bowler C.J. Mosley, who lit it up for Pees in Baltimore as a tackling and coverage machine.

Kyle Emanuel”>Elite”>Kyle Emanuel Jersey For nearly four decades, the CFL had two teams that basically had the same name: the聽Saskatchewan Roughriders and聽Ottawa Rough Riders. (No way the NFL would have suffered such marketing chaos.) Ottawa’s team Alex Biega Jersey folded after the 1996 season. The nation’s capital has had two teams in the intervening years, but neither聽鈥?the defunct Renegades or current Redblacks聽鈥?adopted the old nickname.

How you ask? In Canada you get one point for a rouge, which basically occurs when a ball goes into (or through) the opponents’ end zone and isn’t returned on a punt or聽missed field goal. And, yes, Montreal defeated Ottawa 1-0 on聽Oct. 30, 1966.

(My father was an immigrant to whom the American Dream was more than a cliche. It was a beacon that brought his family here dirt poor, driven by nightmare memories from Eastern Europe that he later shared with me. It was why going off to war in 1917 for the country he loved was easy for him. It is why this annual remembrance appears once again on another Memorial Day.)

Latavius Murray Mens Jersey The picture is older than the Great Depression by more than a decade and older than the day that Hollywood first put a voice to its motion pictures.

NFL owners considering compromise on national anthem policy

Posted on by

Game Demaryius Thomas Jersey The NFL is considering a number of rules changes regarding the national anthem policy ahead of the 2018 season, according to The Washington Post.
Nike NFL Roosevelt Nix Olive Jersey Women's Limited: #45 Pittsburgh Steelers 2017 Salute to Service
Game Womens Charles Johnson Jersey The report states the league is considering a compromise which would make standing for the national anthem a team-by-team rule. The owners will gather later this month in Atlanta to hash out some rules topics.

NFL owners may disagree on the topic, but it appears there will be more leniency next season.

All three should be in Cleveland for a while. Chubb is another between-the-tackles runner for the backfield rotation and another playmaker. Ward appears capable of being a solid NFL corner for a decade; he’s another piece to build around Myles Garrett, the Browns’ No. 1 pick in 2017. Ward also might help get Jabrill Peppers on Terrell Brandon Womens Jersey track in the latter’s second season.

But no pick is bigger than Mayfield, the centerpiece of the class. He’s enjoying it 鈥?Happy to be a Cleveland Brown 鈥?but he’s also dead-set on earning the respect.

Gregorius and Torres look down and begin to strut — slowly, and in one place. It’s elbow to opposing knee, and they do it four times. They finish by lifting both hand and pushing them to the right, as if they’re shoving their plates of food off a table.

They don’t have a name for it. They just do it whenever one of them does something good, which has been a lot lately.

The last time Gregorius and Torres danced was right after the Yankees beat the Angels, 2-1, at Yankee Stadium on Friday night.

They do it after every win and when the other scores or hits a home run. Which means they did it twice Friday, including after Torres homered in the seventh inning — his second RBI of the game — to give the Yankees the lead for good.

Obviously, what went on last year is distracting to anybody, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. I thought [Elliott] handled it really well, fought through it, came back and did a good job for us at the end of the year.

Terry Rozier says Celtics got needed wake-up call in Game 3

Posted on by

Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier believes his team got a much-needed wake-up call during Saturday’s lopsided Game 3 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals.
#21 Nike Swingman Vlade Divac Men's White NBA Jersey - Sacramento Kings Association Edition
The Cavaliers jumped on Boston early en route to a 116-86 triumph that narrowed the Celtics’ series lead to 2-1. Rozier hinted that the Celtics might Vince Dunn Womens Jersey have gotten a little too content after taking the first two games of the series in Boston.

In a make-or-miss postseason, Cleveland’s shots finally went down, as LeBron James notched 12 assists and the Cavs went 17-of-34 from the 3-point line to claim their first win of the Eastern Conference finals.

We needed to get our butts whooped, he said. Come back to reality and take care of business on Monday.

Stevens noted how Boston settled for a lot of low-percentage pull-up jumpers instead of working to either get to the basket or generate quality perimeter looks through ball movement.

Jaylen Brown said the Cavaliers put an emphasis on preventing him from setting the tone offensively for Boston by denying him the ball early. Brown got in early foul trouble, which further hindered a Celtics defense that watched LeBron James get his points (27 for the night) and play facilitator (nine assists over 32 minutes).

Elite Mens Indianapolis Colts Jersey The team’s in good spirits, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. We’re disappointed we didn’t win last night, but we’re right in the middle of a great series, and we feel good about our prospects going forward. We know we have a lot of things to clean up.

We’ve been down this road before many times. We’re excited to be here.

Authentic Womens Malcolm Jenkins Jersey Golden State was outscored 25-12 in the final frame Tuesday. During the quarter prior to that, the Warriors had erupted for 34 points and appeared to be on the verge of taking a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Most definitely a missed opportunity to go up 3-1, and we were up 12 [in the fourth quarter], forward Kevin Durant said. Definitely a missed opportunity, but we have another opportunity tomorrow to turn the series back, and it’s an exciting time for us to see what that’s about.

On top of coughing up such an important game, the Warriors’ NBA-record postseason winning streak at home was snapped at 16 games.

Ranking every 2017 NFL first-round pick based on projected playing time

Posted on by

You can’t win if you don’t play. That rule applies to many situations, but it really hits home for NFL draft picks, as they can’t prove their worth to their teams if they are not on the field.
Youth #2 Nike Limited Mason Crosby Olive/Camo NFL Jersey - Green Bay Packers 2017 Salute to Service
So which players are the most likely to be given the opportunity to showcase their value by getting a high percentage of on-field snaps in the 2017 season?

No Browns safety last season tallied a snap rate higher than 48 percent. That will change with Peppers, but his true snap ceiling comes after factoring in his potential snaps as a punt returner, kickoff returner and gadget-play specialist on offense. Add those in and Peppers could be on the field more than any other player on this list.

New coach Steve Wilks addressed the issue on Friday’s edition of Rookie Camp Live, telling NFL Network’s Omar Milwaukee Brewers Youth jersey Ruiz that Bradford is atop the depth chart but Rosen can win the job.

We’re pushing everybody to start, Wilks explained. I’ve stated this several times: Sam Bradford is our starter. We gotta go out there with 11 guys and Sam’s going to be the first guy out there. But everybody’s fighting for a position, so I’m not going to hold [Rosen] back at all.

I want guys competing, I want guys fighting for a starting job. Whoever ends up winning the position, that’s who’s going to end up playing.

Although Bradford’s reputation has taken a hit via the incessant injury bug, he’s been one of the most accurate — and overlooked — quarterbacks in the league as an intermittent starter.

Supreme Court’s ruling on sports betting is a game changer for American sports

Posted on by

The floodgates are open now. You want to place a bet on the聽 Giants to win the Super Bowl ? You’ll be able to do so legally, in a matter of weeks, at a shiny new sports book at Monmouth Park.聽
NHL Adidas Vegas Golden Knights #21 Cody Eakin Gray Backer T-Shirt
But this聽isn’t going to stop there. You can, ahem, bet on that.聽

Soon, you won’t have to make that drive to a racetrack or a casino — you’ll be able to Jordan Crawford Womens Jersey visit a betting parlor in a shopping mall near your hometown. And, maybe sooner still, even that short trip will be unnecessary.

The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make, Justice Samuel Alito, a New Jersey native, said in the opinion. Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own.聽

New Jersey is ready to be the first to act.聽 Monmouth Park hopes to be operational in time for the NBA Finals, a much needed boost for its bottom line. Lesniak promised that he’d be first on line when the racetrack’s sports book opens and a new era in American sports begins.聽

It will all seem crazy at first, but soon, it will become the new normal. And, yes, you can bet on that.聽

Jay Bromley Authentic Jersey PASPA was declared unconstitutional in the 7-2聽decision, meaning it will be up to states 鈥?including New Jersey, which has sought to establish sports gambling for years 鈥?to decide whether to allow its residents to bet on sports.聽

Here’s a breakdown of what the ruling by the nation’s highest court means:聽

PASPA was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush in 1992 and went into effect in January 1993. Nevada 鈥?the only state at the time the bill became law that had widespread state-sponsored sports bettors 鈥?and three other states with more limited betting (Oregon, Delaware and Montana) were grandfathered in.聽

PASPA didn’t outlaw sports betting because that was already illegal. Rather, PASPA banned states 鈥?outside those given exemptions 鈥?from regulating (and taxing) sports betting.聽

Despite PASPA’s existence, the American Gaming Association (AGA) estimates at least $150 billion a year is gambled on sports in the U.S. and 97% of that amount was bet illegally.聽

With PASPA stricken down, states now can establish their own regulated聽sports betting.聽

Texans sign K.J. Malone, whose dad was good at basketball

Posted on by

If you’re of a certain age, you’ll recall Karl Malone being the unstoppable power forward in the NBA.

If you’re of that age, this story will make you feel old.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans signed undrafted free agent tackle K.J. Malone from LSU.

K.J. nearly skipped his final year of football at LSU to enter law enforcement, but is apparently ready to delay those plans a bit.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert on Wednesday revealed the injured linebacker won’t play in 2018 but there will be some sort of designation for him so he can still remain a part of the team.

“Ryan Shazier won’t play in 2018. He knows that. We know that,” Colbert told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Shazier is still recovering from a serious spinal injury suffered in a Dec. 4 game against the Bengals that required spinal stabilization surgery on Dec. 6. He was released from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Rehabilitation Institute earlier this month.

Shazier, 25, will enter the fifth year on his initial contract next season. After earning $9.56 million over his first NFL seasons, the two-time Pro Bowler will count $8.7 million against the Steelers’ salary cap after the team exercised the fifth-year option on his rookie contract last year.

Bass appeared in 15 games last season – 13 with the Jets and two with the Seattle Seahawks – recording a career-high 3.5 sacks and 26 total tackles. Bass is getting set to enter his sixth season and has spent time with the Jets, Seahawks, Tennessee Titans and Chicago Bears.

Meanwhile, the Jets still have 12 receivers on the roster following the release of Marshall, Natson and Stringfellow.

This implies that he has moments where he’s not happy. Even if Brady’s effort to take the fifth was a joke (and it possibly was), he should have made it very clear that he was joking — especially since he didn’t ultimately answer the question regarding whether he feels appreciated with something like, “Yes, they appreciate me. They pay me great money to do something I’d do for free. They give me everything I need to be successful.”
