The old best rivalry in the NFC West is the new best rivalry in the NFC West.

San Francisco got Sherman and offensive lineman Weston Richburg. There will be more calculated spending ahead, and besides, the Niners already made the big move of the offseason by signing and then extending Jimmy Garoppolo.

The Rams countered by tagging safety Lamarcus Joyner, trading for cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib and re-signing corner Nickell Robey-Coleman.
Cleveland’s 2015 first-round pick was drafted with the idea of being a nose tackle in Mike Pettine’s 3-4 alignment.

Former Panthers left guard Andrew Norwell wasn’t heard in any rumors regarding the Jags, but there he is, about to line up next to stud center Brandon Linder and further boost the blocking in front of Leonard Fournette for the league’s No. 1 rushing attack. The Jaguars don’t want to mess with the running game/physical identity that got them a quarter away from the Super Bowl. At the same time, they took a worthy flyer on a cheaper Robinson fill-in with former Colt Donte Moncrief and also kept Marqise Lee.

Grade for Vikings: B+ After adding Keenum, the Broncos found themselves with an overstuffed quarterback room and dealt one away to Minnesota.

Denver sent Week 1 starter Siemian to the Vikings along with a seventh-round pick for a 2019 fifth-round selection.

The move presumably installs Paxton Lynch as the primary backup for Keenum depending on what the Broncos do in the draft, a situation that would not inspire much hope in the case of a Keenum injury.

Wade has felt the love of those crowds as he has expanded his pursuits beyond sneakers. His Li-Ning deal allowed him to develop and trademark his own logo, which he can use not only on his signature Way of Wade shoes, but also on any other product he develops and endorses, such as his Wade Cellars wine.

That’s good news for teams like the Broncos and Cardinals, who need a quarterback but have limited cap room to work with this offseason. Still, there’s a long list of players better than McCarron who might find jobs first.

Buffalo is shipping off all kinds of assets before the league year opens. On Monday, they dealt left tackle Cordy Glenn to the Bengals and swapped first-round picks with Cincy as part of the deal.patriots_009

Rays cut ties with team doctor after allegation of sexual abuse

Albert McClellan Kids Jersey
The Rays on Tuesday severed ties with team physician Michael Reilly following allegations of sexual abuse.
Women's Rickey Jackson Limited White/Pink Nike Jersey: NFL New Orleans Saints #57 Rush Fashion
Reilly was accused of inappropriate behavior and sexual abuse eight to 10 years ago in a video posted by a Florida woman on YouTube on Jan. 17.

Reilly, 67, was initially suspended by the team last week after the video surfaced. He has denied the allegations but admitted to having a consensual relationship when the woman was an adult.

A spokeswoman for the St. Petersburg Police Department confirmed to the Times that an investigation is ongoing.

Reilly has been affiliated with the Rays for 20 seasons and previously served as a team doctor for the Tampa Bay Lightning from 1992-2002.

Darius Butler Authentic Jersey With 154 1/2 sacks over his career, Peppers needs just six sacks to move past Greene for third place all-time. He also has 73 pass breakups, 11 interceptions, 49 forced fumbles and six defensive touchdowns to his credit.

With White, Greene and Peppers, three of the top four sacks leaders all played for the Panthers at some point during their careers.

Peppers played on a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Panthers last season. He returned to Carolina, which selected him with the second overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft, after seven years split between the Bears and Packers. Peppers, a North Carolina native who played collegiately at UNC, spent his first eight NFL seasons with the Panthers. He Andy Greene Jersey was the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2002 and has been selected to the Pro Bowl nine times.

NFL free agency: Vikings can give Kirk Cousins his best offer

Alex Okafor Mens Jersey
Trae Waynes found his way opposite Xavier Rhodes, so the Vikings are set on the outside. Nickel back is the consideration here, as Terence Newman is a free agent before his age-40 season, and 2016 second-rounder Mackensie Alexander still looked overwhelmed in sub-packages.

Game Womens Khris Davis Jersey Jackson proved he could take over games with his speed and quickness as a runner during his dazzling, Heisman-winning career at Louisville, so there was no need for him to run the 40-yard dash, the jumps or the 3-cone drill. That decision put all the focus and scrutiny on how he threw passes at Lucas Oil Stadium.

When Jackson let the deep balls fly, he had some expected issues with accuracy. Once comfortable and settled, he was crisp in connecting with receivers on intermediate routes in the middle of the field.

Jackson measuring 6-1 2/8 and weighing 216 pounds was not surprising, and neither were the Steve McNair Womens Jersey mixed results of his throwing drills. They make up only about half of the equation, however. While Jackson needs to develop the footwork and mechanics to consistently execute all the necessary throws in the NFL, everyone knows he has something no one else has in this QB class.

Strief thanked the organization for taking a chance on him, adding that he was humbled to play alongside quarterback Drew Brees.

Drew Brees has been the single greatest motivation for me as a player, Strief said. My greatest drive as a player was not to let you down. … Being a small part of your Hall of Fame career has been my greatest honor as a player.

The veteran drew praise from coach Sean Payton, who saluted Strief for his years of dedication to the team.

Congratulations to Zach Strief on being arguably probably one of the best players I’ve had a chance to coach, one of the best teammates and someone our whole organization and fanbase can be proud of, Payton said in a statement, via the team’s website. As a person, as a man, as a friend, and as a head coach, I thank Zach. He will always be one of us.

Strief, 34, was selected by the Saints in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He appeared in 158 regular-season games with 93 starts, which is the 11th-most games played by a Saint and ranks third among offensive linemen. He also appeared in 10 postseason games, tied for second in franchise history.

How the NFL Combine went from a tiny event in Tampa to the draft showcase it is today

Now, not only are fans in the stands, but NFL Network does live coverage with two sets in Lucas Oil Stadium.
Men's Majestic San Diego Padres #31 Dave Winfield Replica Navy Blue Alternate 1 Cool Base MLB Jersey
The Combine’s come a long way from drills held in secret to the Draft process’s staple Jacob Schum Jersey showcase event.

There are many other things said about Jackson, but a consistent urban legend is that Jackson once ran a 4.13 40-yard dash. That would beat the official NFL Combine record of 4.22 that John Ross set last year, but Jackson didn’t attend the 1986 Combine before he was taken by the Bucs first overall (he wouldn’t play for them and instead got picked the next year by the Raiders). Instead, he ran the electronically timed 4.13 at Auburn for scouts pretty much because his coaches begged him to.

Jackson recalls that it was an electronically-timed 4.13 during what would or could be considered a regional combine or expanded pro day that Auburn hosted. According to Jackson, numerous prospects from several colleges attended. He said that it took place in the indoor bubble at Auburn, there was electronic tape at the start that triggered the clock, and that there was a laser at the finish line of the 40-yard dash.

The coaches asked me, they said, ‘Bo, we have a bunch of pro scouts here, and it’s 40-yard dash time, they’re having a little combine, why don’t you come in and run a 40 for them, because they really came here in hopes to get you to run a 40 for them,’ Jackson recalled. ‘I’m on my way to track practice, I’ll be running for the next two hours.’ ‘Just come in and appease these people, just come in and run 40 for them.’

The reason is simple: Lauletta and Bill Belichick appear to be a perfect match.

I’ve heard it a few times from friends and non-football people, Lauletta said of the chatter that’s he’s a dream pairing with Belichick. But you don’t even think about stuff like that. It’s really a waste of my energy to try to make the connections.

That was one of many questions he fielded about the Patriots.

Game Kids Deatrich Wise Jr Jersey Learning from a guy like Tom Brady, you can learn so much just by the way he works and observing the way he goes about his business day to day, Lauletta said. Wherever I am, I think I’ll be in a good spot. But that would definitely be a good one.

NBA All-Star 2018: Players Association pushed for draft process to remain private, report says

This year’s NBA All-Star draft was going to be one of the most exciting media spectacles in league history — until the National Basketball Players Association stepped in.

Back in October, the NBA announced the main event of its annual star-studded weekend would experience a major shakeup. Rather than a traditional East vs. West matchup, the two leading vote-getters in each conference would serve as captains of their own teams and draft their rosters from the pool of remaining All-Stars.

After hearing that solution, one might wonder if the next All-Star shakeup will be to replace the Slam Dunk Contest with a two-hour layup special.

Konecny put Philadelphia ahead 3:54 later when he batted the puck over Jarry’s right pad.

But the Penguins scored three straight goals to take a 4-2 lead into the third.

“They scored when they needed to score,” Voracek said. “They make you pay.”

Oleksiak tied it at 2 with 10:36 remaining with a slap shot that got through the screen of Crosby and Jake Guentzel and past Peter Mrazek.

The Flyers, sans a three-game losing streak in the past week, have been hot over the past month. I like them to hop past the Pens to close the regular season. If they meet Pittsburgh in the opening round, however, I don’t like the Flyers’ odds. Playoff Penguins are a different breed, and the Philadelphia goalie situation makes me a little nervous in the postseason.

Allen: Murray skated on his own on Monday, suggesting he’ll return sooner than later. Brian Elliott won’t be back until late March. Give me the Penguins.

While Bridges has shown the occasional flash out of a ball screen, he struggles getting low to the ground with the ball and is stiff with his handle. The chances he becomes a primary initiator are slim. A more realistic outcome would result in him attacking off the catch against closeouts where he’s explosive enough to finish in traffic and a good enough passer to find shooters after one or two dribbles.

Jarvis Landry’s agent talks with Ravens, Bears about possible trade

The Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears are among at least five teams to talk with Jarvis Landry’s agent about a potential trade for the Pro Bowl receiver, according to a source.
Women's Game Brandon Doughty Aqua Green Jersey: Home #7 NFL Miami Dolphins Nike
Jarvis Landry’s agent received permission from the Dolphins to pursue a trade for the franchise-tagged wide receiver, sources confirm. At least two teams have communicated their interest, sources tell ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

At 5-feet-11 and with a career average of 10.1 yards per catch, Landry is labeled as an inside receiver, which doesn’t typically doesn’t command the same payout as true outside wideouts, but several coaches from the NFL combine said Landry is capable of playing inside and out.

While three-cone drills and 40 times are important, I go there for networking. Kissing babies, shaking hands and listening. Lots and lots of listening. Some of it happens at formal events like the news conference, other parts occur in hallways, restaurants and bars at night. Some of it is on the record, some of it off, but either way, there are a lot of fantasy-relevant nuggets that come out of the combine that have nothing to do with Saquon Barkley or which of the QBs will go the highest. So, here, in no particular order, are 15 impressions I got after going to the combine and talking to folks. And, for what it’s worth, reading between the lines of how he answered, I didn’t get a great feeling that Gase was super-fired up about Grant or Carroo after last season. Even if Jarvis Landry leaves the Dolphins, it sounds like there are better sleepers.

McCaffrey was hiking with his brothers, Dylan and Max, and friends Michael Mann and Brooke Pettet when they walked up on the fall as it occurred.

It felt like he was in the air for 10 seconds, McCaffrey told the team website. I had never seen anything quite like that in my life as far as the trauma and the sound. We were in shock.

But not so much that they didn’t respond quickly. A fellow onlooker identified as Chris held Smoker’s head to keep him still. Mann performed chest compressions when Smoker stopped breathing.

Limited Mens Taywan Taylor Jersey Everybody stepped up, McCaffrey said. I called 911, and it felt like an eternity. It felt like we were up there waiting for four hours. But I looked back at my call log and it took 11 minutes before the paramedics came. Amazing what those guys did.

That McCaffrey & Co. were at Castle Rock was random. They were on the way to lunch when a member of the group suggested they go hike.

Rae Carruth gives up pursuit of custody of son he tried to have killed

The day after a letter written by Rae Carruth suggesting he wanted custody of his son, Chancellor, was published, the imprisoned former Panthers wide receiver sent another letter saying he’s changed his mind about that pursuit.
David Johnson Men's Game Black Jersey: Nike NFL Arizona Cardinals Alternate #31
Carruth has been in jail since 2001, convicted of conspiring to murder Cherica Adams while she was pregnant with Chancellor. A gunman hired by Carruth, Van Brett Watkins, shot Cherica four times. She gave birth to Chancellor shortly after that but died four weeks later. Chancellor was born with cerebral palsy and brain damage.

Kids Nate Allen Jersey In a letter published by WBTV on Feb. 20, Carruth wrote of his son, I let him down as he came into this world and the only way that I can make that right and the only way I can work out my relationship with my son is to be there for him.
Kids Taylor Moton Jersey
Tiffany Shears-Trice, a spokesperson for the family who has kept in touch with Carruth during his incarceration, said, Rae can see Chancellor is a happy, healthy soul and he doesn’t want to interfere with that. But he will still live up to his financial responsibilities for his son �C he definitely wants to do that and he will do that. He wants to help.

The Observer notes that Saundra Adams has received hardly any money from the $5.8 million she was awarded in a wrongful death suit in 2003, which was to be paid by Carruth and his three convicted co-conspirators.

Carruth is scheduled to be released from prison in October.

Below are the best numbers for the core events �� 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, three-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle and 60-yard shuttle �� since 2006, or what the league calls recent history.

The trade deadline created a lot of movement in the 2018 NBA draft. Let’s look at where the top prospects — Trae Young, Luka Doncic, Deandre Ayton, Mohamed Bamba and Marvin Bagley III — might land.

Adams certainly isn’t alone in making such remarks, as similar sentiments have been voiced for years — though more often privately — by players and coaches, especially during lengthy road trips spread across several time zones.

Yet Adams’ quote does capture the hidden toll that travel Mark Barberio Youth jersey and fatigue can take on what might be considered basic, fundamental notions — that you know where you are.

Fantasy hockey forecaster: Feb. 19-25

Mathew Barzal’s breakout campaign is getting all the credit it deserves, as the rookie has been a lock for fantasy rosters since his first five-point game in early November. Barzal is among the top 15 in the league for points and solidly in the top 10 for assists, but where he really stands out is when all things are even.
Elite Mens Cordy Glenn Jersey Men's Nike Minnesota Vikings #5 Teddy Bridgewater Limited Green Salute to Service Tank Top NFL Jersey
Well, Kase is actually eighth on the list with 2.9 points per 60 at 5-on-5. This 22-year-old Czech winger is more than building off the strides he took in his rookie campaign last season, and despite getting less than prime ice time with the Ducks, he has potted 30 points in 43 games. His plus-17 is indicative of success at even strength, and he’s been especially hot of late with eight points in the past six games. Kase, Nick Ritchie Womens Tyrunn Walker Jersey and Adam Henrique look like a happy trio for the Ducks second line, and even if the team brings in a winger at the trade deadline, we’re betting Kase isn’t the one getting demoted.

Mayfield, UCLA’s Josh Rosen, Wyoming’s Josh Allen and Southern California’s Sam Darnold all have the potential to be the top quarterback selected. Many personnel evaluators around the league have said this year’s group has tried to show elite-level confidence in the informal interviews at the combine, even more than the usual confidence the position requires to succeed.

Mayfield, asked about the possibility of going to Cleveland at either No. 1 or No. 4 in the draft — given that the Browns are 1-31 over the past two seasons — said he is ready to be a franchise guy.

They’d get a winner. If anybody’s going to turn that franchise around, it’s going to be me, said the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, who had three seasons of at least 3,700 yards passing for the Sooners.

The Super Bowl, however, has a way of making players crack.

One of the incidents came in 2005, when Manning allegedly asked Skiba for an old beat-up game helmet, signed it, and then put it on the market as a helmet from his rookie season. According to the Washington Post, the fake helmet from Manning’s rookie season is missing a black “RB” sticker that all Giants helmets had in 2004 to honor Roosevelt Brown.

The lawsuit also claims Skiba doctored a helmet from 2008 to make it appear as the one Manning wore in the Super Bowl that season.

In the emails via the New York Post, Alan Zucker, Manning’s marketing agent, asked him to send “2 game used helmets and 2 game used jerseys” to provide to Steiner Sports in 2010.

“I think going into this game, you can’t be caught up in it’s the Patriots or Tom Brady or even that it’s the Super Bowl,” Mills said. “I think you have to take the approach you have taken all season and that is no fear. Play technique. Play your game.”

And these defensive backs are prime candidates because footballs will fly all evening. Strong, relentless pass rushers would alleviate some of the burden. But defensive backs in Super Bowl 52 can help themselves most by remembering this -– don’t panic. Breathe.

The Kings also play at a slow pace, and all his teammates are healthy heading back from the break. Price and matchup aside, there’s simply no reason to spend on George tonight; either pay up for LeBron James or Kevin Durant, save substantially with Otto Porter Jr. or DeMarre Carroll, or go for the maximum savings with a minimum-salaried David Nwaba.

Vancouver, which dropped to 3-7-1 in February, is 5-11-1 against intradivision foes.

The Canucks got goals from Sven Baertschi, Thomas Vanek and Daniel Sedin.

Anders Nilsson, who played in his 100th career game, had 19 saves for the Canucks before being replaced by Jacob Markstrom at the start of the third period. Markstrom made 8 stops for Vancouver.jays_929_ba72a7474f4acb8b-180x180

Despite the loss, James was encouraged by the performance.

James, back from winning MVP honors at the All-Star Game, scored 32 — 14 in the fourth — for the Cavs, who dropped to 2-1 since acquiring four new players before the trade deadline. J.R. Smith added 15 for Cleveland.
Brian Cushing Kids Jersey Women's Majestic Chicago White Sox #26 Avisail Garcia Replica Blue American League 2017 MLB All-Star MLB Jersey
I think we played well tonight, even though we lost, James said. I hate losing, obviously, but I think the way we played, the way we shared the ball. Defensively, we were flying around as well and those guys, they just played better than us tonight. I like the start, I like the direction we’re headed.

The Golden State Warriors are planning on facing the Sacramento Kings in a 2018 preseason game in Seattle, which would be the first NBA contest in the Emerald City since the SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City following the 2007-08 season.

Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, Mayor Darrell Steinberg and tourism officials are set to detail plans for the bid for the game in 2022 or 2023 on Thursday and submit an application to the league Friday.

The one thing that we wanted to make sure of when we came into this tournament is that when it ended we’d Neal Broten Youth jersey be proud of how we represented our country, said coach Tony Granato. I’m very proud of how we competed and how we played and how we represented our country from the start of the tournament to the end of it.

Fans of the Boston Bruins, Minnesota Wild and Anaheim Ducks should be drooling over what Ryan Donato, Jordan Greenway and Troy Terry showed them in this tournament.
Game Stephen Anderson Jersey
The Americans can hope that next time, it’s the Auston Matthews generation vying for gold instead of a team of random parts from random places.

Getting the game would cap a remarkable comeback for Sacramento, which nearly lost its franchise to Seattle in 2013 before Ranadive bought the team and put together a deal to build a state-of-the-art downtown arena.
