With starting spot resecured, Eli Manning nets $5 million bonus

When Eli Manning was sitting on the bench watching Geno Smith play quarterback for the Giants against the Raiders on December 3, it wasn’t hard to find people who doubted that Manning would get a $5 million bonus for being on the Giants come the fifth day of the 2018 league year.

Things shift quickly in the NFL, though, and the fifth day of the new league year passing without any fanfare around the Giants illustrates that. Manning went from benched to back as the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback for the team well before there was any reason to contemplate the Giants moving on without him.

So it’s easy to see where the Bills are coming from: They think the wild card round of the offs was as far as they were going to go with Taylor at the helm. Now they think extra cap space and another draft pick can help them get further. And McCarron will hold down the fort until a rookie quarterback is ready.

The University of Northern Colorado football team went big and small and everywhere between on Wednesday.Shot by Mikhail Grabovski.Everyone expected these kind of numbers…worse case, and nobody figured he’d struggle to find a place the line up.

Bray joined the Chiefs in 2013 as an undrafted rookie and has been with Kansas City ever since. He never played in a regular-season game until Week 17 of last year, when he came on the field at the end of the game and threw one pass, an incompletion.

Trumaine Johnson’s two-tag, three-year haul? $56.6 million

Quarterback Kirk Cousins has received plenty of praise for blazing a trail when it comes to the demonstrating to all ers the value of going year-to-year under the franchise tag. But he’s not alone.
Men's Calgary Flames #13 Johnny Gaudreau Reebok Black Premier Pacific Division 2017 All-Star NHL Jersey
Jerry Rice Limited Jersey Cornerback Trumaine Johnson, tagged twice by the Rams, has cashed in on a multi-year deal that, per a source with knowledge of the situation, has first-year cash flow of $26 million. Coupled with the $30.672 million that he made over two years under the tag, that’s $56.672 million for Johnson in three years.

So it’s Cousins and Johnson who have proven to all teams the value of opting for a year-to-year approach under the tag. It will be interesting to see whether the tagged ers choose to do the same. It’s something they definitely should consider, especially if their teams fail to make long-term offers that fairly reflect the leverage and value of the tag.

Sashi Brown’s cap space, draft picks made Browns’ trades possible

A player’s situation often dictates whether he’s successful at the professional level. The team, coaching staff and system are all major factors in an individual’s development.

Josh Jackson has the best ball skills of any defender in this year’s class. Yet he showed how much he struggles even with a simple backpedal at the combine. Iowa used a zone-heavy defense in which Jackson wasn’t asked to consistently pedal and cover in man situations. Instead, his length, eye discipline and ability to drive on or high-point the football came into play.

Kids Chandler Catanzaro Jersey Dubbed Injury Protection, this term gives a player who was injured during one season compensation for the next season, if he still can’t play due to the injury. Section 2 ensures the player 50 percent of the salary he was due to earn, up to a maximum of $1.15 million for 2018.

The money is paid in equal installments during the next season, unless the player signs a contract and passes a physical with another team. In Sherman’s case, it’s expected that his pair of Achilles tendon procedures eventually will result in Sherman passing a physical and playing this season.

Sherman’s situation would have been much more complicated for the Seahawks if his $11 million salary for 2018 had been guaranteed for injury. Since, however, 2018 was the last year of Sherman’s deal, the guarantees had already evaporated. So the Seahawks were able to unload his cap number, retaining at worst the responsibility to pay him $1.15 million for 2018.

At best, he’ll be joining a new team at some point before the season begins, and the Seahawks will be off the hook.

In 2015, John Bowlen was arrested for domestic violence; . Technically, he’s one of the candidates (because he is one of Pat Bowlen’s seven children) to eventually assume control of the franchise, under the terms of the trust that current operates the team. These incidents make that outcome very difficult, if not entirely impossible.

Let’s start this one with a general observation: What NFL players do on their own time is their own business. Unless they’re violating someone else’s rights, putting people or property Authentic C.

Giants to sign huge linebacker from coach’s past

When a coordinator goes to a new team, it pays to connect-the-dots when it comes to player movement. Kareem Martin played the past four years with the Cardinals and James Bettcher ran the defense in Arizona the past three years. This connection is one of the main reasons why Martin is the newest Giants linebacker, agreeing to terms Wednesday.

Originally a 2014 third-round draft pick out of North Carolina, Martin was a backup his first three years with the Cardinals, before starting 10 games in 2017. He had 24 tackles, one sack and one interception last season. Martin has played in 56 games in the NFL, with 14 starts.

Ryan Quigley Limited Jersey The Giants earlier in the week re-signed Mark Herzlich to a one-year deal for the league minimum $790,000 in base salary. Herzlich, though, is more of a Authentic Mel Blount Jersey special teams player than he is a reserve linebacker, although if he makes the team will be listed as a backup linebacker. The Giants hope their linebacker corps will be anchored by Ogletree and B.J. Goodson, who struggled through an injury-filled second NFL season. Goodson was the Opening Day starter in 2017 and had 18 tackles in the loss to the Cowboys, but ended up playing in only seven games because of an assortment of leg and ankle injuries.

The notion that I can be a great signing for your team for cheap, not because of my skill set but because I’ve protested systemic oppression, is ludicrous, Reid, 26, tweeted. If you think [it] is, then your mindset is part of the problem too.

Kaepernick retweeted the message. In December, the outspoken Reid said he understood he could experience a drought as a result of his social advocacy.

I wouldn’t use the word concerned, Reid told ESPN about the possibility of teams shunning him. I would say I understand that’s a possibility. And I’m completely fine with it. The things that I’ve done, I stand by, and I’ve done that for my own personal beliefs. Like I said, I’m fine with whatever outcome happens because of that.

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

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.

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.

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.
