Titans make retired player with ALS one of their captains

Rob Ramage Authentic Jersey
Tim Shaw’s presence with the Titans will continue into 2017 as he was named as one of the team’s six captains.

Shaw, a special teams performer and linebacker for the Titans from 2010-12, was diagnosed with ALS in 2014.

It is real special for Tim to be with us, Titans captain Wesley Woodyard said, via the team’s website. Nobody knows how many days you have on this earth, and him battling ALS, it shows the courage he has to keep going on. It is amazing to have him around and we cherish him.

Other Titans captains include quarterback Marcus Mariota, tight end Delanie Walker, linebacker Brian Orakpo and defensive lineman Jurrell Casey.

A fifth-round pick by the Panthers in 2007, Shaw also played for the Jaguars and Bears before finishing his career with three seasons in Tennessee.

Mike Singletary Authentic Jersey Shaw currently has a book out titled Blitz Your Life: Stories from an NFL and ALS Warrior.

Hunt was being drafted 35th on average (ADP: 36.5) in the seven-day period leading into Thursday’s kickoff, but by Sunday’s kickoff, his ADP for the seven-day period leading into the day had risen to 19.1 and 16th overall.

Tarik Cohen, RB, Chicago Bears: Though his 13 total touches were fewer than those of any of the four other running backs with at least 20 PPR fantasy points, Cohen made them count, with 25.3 PPR and 17.3 non-PPR fantasy points. The former earned him a place within the top 20 performances since 1950 in an NFL debut. Cohen had runs of 46 and 15 yards as well as a 19-yard touchdown reception that in the fourth quarter drew the Bears within three points of the visiting Atlanta Falcons, flashing the kind of shiftiness that earned him the nickname The Human Joystick during his days at North Carolina A&T. He is available in 97.7 percent of ESPN leagues and will be one of the top adds in PPR formats entering Week 2 — and rightfully so.

Eddie Lacy unsure of Lambeau Leap, doesn’t want to get pushed back down

Eddie Lacy scored 29 touchdowns while a member of the Packers and 16 of those came at Lambeau Field.

When the Seahawks meet the Packers in Green Bay Grant Hill Womens Jersey on Sunday, the new Seattle running back is not sure if he’ll attempt a Lambeau Leap if he scores a touchdown against his former team.

“I don’t want to get pushed back down,” Lacy told reporters Thursday.

Lacy, 26, was a second-round pick of the Packers K.J. Wright Jersey in the 2013 NFL Draft. The former Alabama running back said he’s looking forward to facing his former team, but admitted it will be different being on the visitors’ sideline.

“We have worked closely with the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office in their review of fantasy sports, including their issuance of the first set of consumer protection regulations for our industry, which we were pleased to comply with since their inception in 2016, ” FanDuel spokesperson Justine Sacco said in a statement.

“Over the last two years, the attorney general’s office has done an excellent job of working to fully understand DraftKings, our business and the fantasy sports industry,” DraftKings’ Tim Parilla said in a statement.

“That expertise informed the Massachusetts regulations which have now become the national model for common sense, consumer-focused fantasy sports regulations.”

The New York Attorney General’s office had also filed a suit against the companies, and reached a settlement last October that totaled $12 million.

The Browns have not been a double-digit favorite in any game since the 2007 season.

The Jets are 8-point underdogs at Buffalo in the season opener. With a bad performance, Salmons said the Jets could easily be 17-point underdogs in Week 2 at Oakland and potentially 10-point underdogs at Cleveland in Week 5.

The Browns have not been a double-digit favorite in any game since the 2007 season.

The Jets are at New England in Week 17, which may temper the spread depending on how meaningful the game is for the Patriots. Otherwise, Salmons said the Jets could end up being 28-point underdogs against New England.

The Atlanta Falcons were 28-point underdogs to Johnny Unitas and the Baltimore Colts in 1968, marking the largest point spread in the Super Bowl era, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Steve Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, cited his service in the U.S. Navy when he told WKYC-TV he was astounded that Browns management knew of the protests but allowed it to occur.

Browns players linked arms while standing in a line together during the national anthem before Saturday night’s preseason game against the Bucs, a day after team legend Jim Brown stressed unity to them when addressing societal issues.

A dozen Browns players knelt in a circle to pray during the national anthem before Monday night’s preseason game. Several other players stood nearby and put their hands on a kneeling teammate’s shoulder.

I am not going to participate or work with management that allows their players to disrespect the flag and the national anthem, Loomis said.

Chargers to put LB Denzel Perryman on IR, expect return

The Los Angeles Chargers plan to place linebacker Denzel Perryman on injured reserve Monday but expect him to return this season, general manager Tom Telesco said.

By rule, players are only permitted to return from injured reserve if they are on a team’s initial 53-man roster.

Korey Toomer and Nick Dzubnar are expected to fill the void at middle linebacker in Perryman’s absence. Perryman, 24, recorded 72 tackles, two sacks and an interception in 12 games — 11 starts — last year.

Each team is allowed to designate two players on injured reserve to return as a result of a rule change instituted for this season.

“If I’m available, I’ll be there,” Cousins said. “Or if we’re in L.A. or playing Philly, it is what it is and I’ll get there as fast as I can.”

Last season, Colt McCoy’s wife had her baby induced six days before her due date of Thanksgiving — and the Redskins were playing at Dallas. Julie Cousins did not want to have their baby induced, and the couple was comfortable with that decision.

“She’s really supportive,” Kirk Cousins said, “and knew from day one that she would rather let the baby come when it comes and we’ll react accordingly.”

The couple revealed via social media in March that they would be having a boy.

Cousins, 29, will enter his third season as the Redskins’ starting quarterback — and his second playing under the franchise tag. He has thrown for club-record yardage totals each of the past two seasons, including 4,917 yards.9

The 49ers are the latest football team to steal a strategy from the NBA in terms of roster construction.

Cousins in San Francisco could receive top-five quarterback money in a long-term deal, play under a coach who has always shown him respect, trust and confidence, and find a familiar offense he can step into right away.

Even if, by a major surprise, the 49ers don’t get Cousins, they can go for Jimmy Garoppolo and/or a likely top-five pick as their quarterback of the future.

The 49ers are the latest football team to steal a strategy from the NBA in terms of roster construction. They’re tanking by design, and the organization is ready.

The NBA has the most exciting offseason of any major sport. Fans get into prolonged debates about salary caps, impending free agents, the collection of draft picks as inexpensive assets and the discussion of tanking vs. going all-in. Every fan base has a vested interest during every offseason.

The oppression of African Americans in this country is very real for you, and you want to use your visibility to bring about change. Two: Doing it could cost you your career, because you see that Colin Kaepernick still is without a job.

Game Kids D.J. Humphries Jersey You want to do something, but don’t know what or how. Who do you call? Try Anquan Boldin, or Malcolm Jenkins, or Torrey Smith. Or any of the more than three dozen NFL players who have joined that trio to make change in, among other areas, police and criminal justice reform. Those players, in various ways since last season, have done the legwork and laid the foundation for activism among NFL players — and, increasingly, athletes in other sports and entertainers in other fields.

Texans coach Bill O’Brien says J.J. Watt will be even better this season

Game Womens Brent Celek Jersey J.J. Watt is expected to be back to his brutal and bloodied self this season.

That was the whole point of drafting the ultimate big-play security blanket in McCaffrey. He literally will catch anything Newton throws his way in open field and is capable of converting any of those catches into a chunk gain.

Along with fellow rookie Curtis Samuel — who also made his 2017 debut at wide receiver in the game — Newton can light up defenses in a different but equally effective way than the extended play lasers he used to throw to Ted Ginn and Philly Brown.

Every quarterback would be envious of Newton having the catch radius of Benjamin, ageless tight end Greg Olsen, an improved Devin Funchess and the unique quickness of McCaffrey and Samuel.

Tebow was slowly forced out of the league after a media frenzy surrounded him in Denver and New York, but with a career 47.9 percent completion percentage, the distraction that came with him was not worth it.

As for Vick, the distraction that came with his legal troubles was incredibly difficult to overcome, but his final season in the NFL before he went to jail included 20 touchdown passes in addition to 1,000 yards rushing from the quarterback spot. That was enough to earn him a second chance with the Eagles. He was a uniquely talented player, which in McCoy’s opinion, Kaepernick is not right now.

He’s 10 times better than Kaepernick, McCoy said of Vick. You’ll deal with that situation, that attention, that media aspect of it. The good, the bad attention you’ll get. Compared to Kaepernick, it’s like, he’s not really that good [enough] of a player to deal with.

Thursday night’s matchup looks like the best game of the week

It’s a blessing. It’s a blessing to be out here, Smith said after playing in Saturday’s preseason game, which was tied 10-10 at halftime. It’s a blessing to be playing for America’s Team. I’m so honored just to play the game I love.

From day one, I’ve believed in myself, and I thank all the supporters everywhere, even everyone who doubted me. I love you guys, and I just appreciate you guys just recognizing me in any way. I’m thankful to be here, and it was a great night.

Thursday night’s matchup looks like the best game of the week, though there are plenty of great games on Sunday as well. Seahawks vs. Packers looks to be the highlight of the Sunday afternoon games, while NBC’s Sunday night game pits the Giants against the Cowboys in an NFC East rivalry game.

On Monday night, newly signed Saints running back Adrian Peterson returns to Minneapolis to take on his former team. Late Monday night, a matchup between the Chargers and Broncos will set the tone in the AFC West.

Eli entered the league dictating where he wanted to play 鈥?he essentially forced a trade from the Chargers, who held the first pick, to the Giants. And though he twice did the world the favor in beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl, there still is resentment toward him. There are so many message-board threats about hatred of Eli Manning, they could fill a coffee-table book. Much of it starts with the Chargers saga, but it includes the fact that he is no Peyton Manning. And in this era, it can’t be forgotten that he can be a nightmare for fantasy owners (an average of 18 interceptions per year since 2010).

Jaguars’ Dante Fowler faces three misdemeanor charges from July incident

Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler has been charged with three misdemeanors in connection with a July 18 confrontation in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Online court records show Fowler, 23, was charged with battery, criminal mischief and petit theft on Aug. 10. According to an affidavit filed at the time, Fowler punched a man after the pair got into an argument, then took the man’s glasses and stomped on them. He also is accused of taking liquor from the man and throwing it into a nearby lake.

The Jaguars selected Fowler third overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, but he missed his entire rookie season after tearing his ACL during mini-camp. He played in all 16 games last season, racking up four sacks and 32 tackles.

Fowler’s arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 11, the day after the Jaguars open the season at the Texans.

Huntsville, Ala. area clergymen have had enough of NFL owners’ reluctance to employ free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the aftermath of his season-long, silent, non-violent protest of police brutality. So, they’re refusing to be entertained by the league’s products.

Thursday, a group of nearly 10 black pastors and Oakwood University president Leslie Pollard announced an “NFL Blackout”, a boycot, or “mancot” as they referred to it, of the league. Until Kaepernick, who kneeled during the national anthem throughout 2016 as a member of the 49ers, is signed, the men are encouraging other leaders to refrain from watching NFL games, purchasing NFL-licensed paraphenalia and participating in fantasy football. avalanche_188

Mario Chalmers making NBA return with Grizzlies on one-year deal, per report

Mario Chalmers is finalizing a one-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal is partially guaranteed.

The Heat now have committed long term to a core of Hassan Whiteside, Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters, Kelly Olynyk, and Tyler Johnson.

Olynyk had a breakout game in the 2017 NBA Playoffs during Game 7 against the Wizards. He led the Celtics with a playoff career high of 26 points in the win. He went 10-of-14 from the field for the game and scored 14 points in the fourth quarter

Olynyk has played all four of his NBA seasons with the Celtics. Last year, he averaged nine points in 20 minutes per game, shooting 50 percent from the field. He has a decent three-point shot as a power forward, shooting 34 percent last season, which makes him a good floor spacer in today’s game.

But the remainder of Phoenix’s green roster is like box of chocolates — you don’t know what you’re going to get from it … yet. The Suns have eight players between the ages of 19 and 23, the second-most in the league behind the 76ers. Save for Booker, none of those kids has emerged as bonafide future stars in this league. As the West continues to get stronger, Phoenix projects to be at the bottom of the barrel again.

Authentic Mens Boomer Esiason Jersey This is the state of the Phoenix Suns entering the 2017-18 season, and they’re OK with it. Rather than chase big-name veterans as they did in summers past, the Suns sat out free agency to focus on their young core. Conversations with McDonough and head coach Earl Watson make one thing clear: The Suns aren’t rushing the process.

We think and hope that we’ll grow step-by-step over the next couple of years, McDonough said. Maybe at some point it isn’t step-by-step, the switch flicks and we’re pretty good overnight. And if that’s the case, I think with the age of our group and the contractual situation of our group, we have a chance be really good for a long time.

My takeaway from the demo is NBA Live is taking a step in the right direction.

Arrelious Benn Mens Jersey Of course, the gameplay is a little bit different from 2K, but I encourage you to try it out for yourselves because I’m not going to sit here and try to gauge what you prefer in a basketball game. It may be the presentation. It may be the experience. You might like an arcade feel. You might like a video game that’s as close to realistic as possible.

No, the demo isn’t perfect. Some of the animations flat-out don’t make sense or come off as the game trying too hard to be cool. But these negatives weren’t enough to make me completely give up on it. After this preview, I’m actually looking forward to trying out the full version.

Now, he’s taken his ideology one step further by making a business out of putting women in their place. LaVar knew exactly what he was doing when he chose to repeat stay in your lane. He knew the cameras were watching, and he seized his marketing opportunity.

In repeating the phrase over and over again until it sticks, LaVar is tying consumers’ consciousness between the subtext of stay in your lane with his merchandise, and he’s turning it into a commodity. LaVar wants you to see the video and repeat the words, until perhaps you’ve become charmed enough to feel drawn to buy his shirt.

Womens Jordan Phillips Jersey Shamefully, Adidas was compliant in LaVar’s sexism, ultimately failing to support the referee and instead succumbing to the ultimatum of the Big Baller Brand. The irony that a superbrand like Adidas would crumble to the very same person who’s made a mockery of its business in recent months shouldn’t be lost on anyone, as I’m sure it’s not lost on LaVar.
