Scott Quessenberry draws inspiration from his older brother, David

Posted on by

The phone call came late one night in 2014. Scott Quessenberry’s father delivered the bad news: Doctors had diagnosed Scott’s brother, David, with non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

It was tough, real tough, like a shot to the heart, Scott Quessenberry said, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

He had 44.5 sacks in his seven seasons in New York after the Jets drafted him in the first round.

Will Scouting Combine move from Indy
Game Mens T. J. Logan Jersey
Texans owner Bob McNair made waves during the 2017 season with his comment about inmates running the prison. The team could make waves during free agency, if there’s any merit to a perception that’s making the rounds in the agents community.

I spoke with two NFL agents this week who said word is the Texans aren’t interested in anyers who participated in pregame kneel-downs in protest of police brutality, writes Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle.

The Raiders have had enough.

With receiving ability likely a premium after signing Blount, the Lions could look to Georgia’s Sony Michel (8.81 RAS) to fill that void in the early rounds. His teammate Nick Chubb (9.03) is no slouch in terms of athleticism either, though he isn’t as much of a receiving threat. Authentic Eric Berry Jersey Each of those scores compare favorably to DeMarco Murray (9.20) and Ezekiel Elliott (8.67) in recent drafts.

I had to see how long I could stare without blinking, Dickson said. I had a couple of attempts. I tried a few techniques, looking away from the light, trying to block any sort of wind coming into the eyes. That was a weird process.

Surely, the contest had something to do with punting, but even Dickson wasn’t sure what it proved to the scouts.

Teams, agents would prefer to get on with free agency

Posted on by

Limited Womens Carl Lawson Jersey The 52-hour negotiating window opened eight hours ago, and not much has really happened.

Multiple league sources have told PFT that, for the most part, the negotiating process has proceeded slowly and tentatively. In most cases, teams are still expressing interest and discussing contracts in terms of general concepts, without many hard, specific offers being made. It’s creating a desire in many reaches of the league to move from negotiation to consummation.

Why can’t we just start it? one source said. There’s been tampering since the Senior Bowl. Let’s get on with it.

Phillips’ production speaks for itself. The four-year starter left Virginia Tech as Stefan Charles Youth jersey the program’s all-time leader with 236 receptions and 3,027 receiving yards. According to Pro Football Focus, he ranked second last聽season among all draft-eligible ACC wide receivers at 2.89 yards per route run.聽

Considering Phillips’ overall speed and ability to create separation were already in question, a poor workout planted another seed of doubt and may drive him into聽undrafted territory.

Hill has ed in 24 games the last two seasons after joining the Rams late in 2015. He’s made seven starts and 58 tackles in those appearances.

It鈥檚 Dave Gettleman, general manager of the Giants, in the lobby of the plush hotel where NFL owners are meeting this week, having a confab with Vikings counterpart Rick Spielman. Maybe they鈥檙e laying groundwork for a blockbuster trade that would ship Odell Beckham聽Jr. out of New York.

Elite Ricardo Allen Jersey Surely not. With wives in tow, their exchange had the appearance of social flavor.

Yet at a place where all of the league鈥檚 power brokers are gathered, where Giants co-owner John Mara maintained that no player on his roster is untouchable, this is surely the environment to jump-start some serious buzz about a major trade.

Tod Leiweke out as NFL’s COO

Posted on by

Before becoming the NFL’s Commissioner, Roger Goodell served as the league’s Chief Operating Officer. For most of the first decade of Goodell’s tenure as Commissioner, the COO job remained vacant.

It’s now vacant again. At least temporarily.

But in discussing Terrell Owens and Dez Bryant recently, Romo said the current Cowboys star ismisunderstood.

Some think that more changes are coming to 345 Park Avenue in the aftermath of Goodell securing a long-term extension, which may have come with a mandate to address some of the issues that have created problems for Big Shield in recent years.

If more changes are coming, it will be interesting to see if the news breaks while most of the reporters covering the league are otherwise tracking free agency, which essentially gives the league an extended Friday afternoon bad-news dump.Marqise Lee staying with Jaguars

Allen Robinson is on his way to Chicago, but another Jaguars wide receiver will be staying in Jacksonville.

Guice is expected to be selected in the early rounds of the NFL Draft next month. For a lot of prospects, NFL teams will ask weird questions ( and in Guice’s case, absurd questions ), and evaluate players on every last thing that they do. One team even had a private investigator follow Baker Mayfield around Norman, Oklahoma .

So for Guice, you’d have to imagine this can only be a good thing for his draft stock, right?

More importantly, it was good he was in the right place at the right time.

Norwell has agreed to a five-year, $66 million deal with $30 million in guaranteed money. Norwell’s contract sets new highs for guards in terms of total value, average per year and guaranteed money a year after Kevin Zeitler of the Browns did the same.

The move upgrades the interior of the Jaguars line, which should make both Leonard Fournette and Blake Bortles happy as they head into the 2018 season. It also strikes a blow to the Giants as General Manager Dave Gettleman signed Norwell in Carolina and hoped to make him the centerpiece of an overhauled offensive line in his first offseason in his new job.

Report: Jonathan Stewart expected to sign with Giants

Posted on by

The Giants weren’t able to bring guard Andrew Norwell to New Jersey from North Carolina, but it looks like they have landed another one of offensive coordinator Mike Shula锟斤拷s former charges with the Panthers.
Premier Reebok Men's Alex Killorn Black Third Jersey - NHL #17 Tampa Bay Lightning 2015 Stanley Cup
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that running back Jonathan Stewart is expected to sign with the Giants. The Giants joined the Lions as teams hosting Stewart on visits after he was released by the Panthers.

The Lions finished last in the NFL last season, converting just 27 percent on carries when needing two or fewer yards on third or fourth down. Blount has been successful on 56.5 percent of those situations the past two seasons.

Game Mens Daryl Worley Jersey The 6-foot-1, 250-pound Blount averaged 4.4 yards per carry last season, his best rate in three years, matching his career average. He锟斤拷ll join a rotation in Detroit that锟斤拷s struggled to move the ball on the ground, finishing 32nd in both rushing yards and yards per attempt in 2017.

The signing reconnects Blount with Lions general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia. The Patriots first acquired Blount in Manny Machado Jersey a 2014 trade, when Quinn was heading the team锟斤拷s pro personnel department.

In Tennessee, Butler will for new head coach Mike Vrabel, who ed for Bill Belichick in New England. Despite Butler’s inauspicious ending in New England, Vrabel apparently likes what Butler can do in his defense.

Butler’s tenure in New England will be remembered for two Super Bowls: The win over the Seahawks in which he grabbed the game-clinching interception, and last month’s loss to the Eagles in which he was benched for reasons that remain unclear.

Butler was the No. 17 er in our Free Agent Top 100.

Jordy Nelson is at the heart of Jon Gruden’s quest to build a football team best suited to win games two decades ago.

The newly signed Oakland Raiders wide receiver agreed to a two-year deal after being cut by the Green Bay Packers. Going into his age-33 season (his birthday is in May), Nelson still received $13 million in guaranteed money spread out over both years of his new contract, per Spotrac.

Players need good agents, period

Posted on by

At a time when a rumor is making the rounds that a prominent member of the media was unofficially giving cornerback Richard Sherman free advice on his negotiations with the 49ers (Sherman may have gotten his money’s worth), I’m prepared to give all players free advice on this topic. (And they’ll definitely get their money’s worth.)
Women's Nike New York Giants #67 Justin Pugh Limited White Rush Vapor Untouchable NFL Jersey
In most cases, the per-game roster bonuses total less than $1 million. Aaron Rodgers, for example, has per-game roster bonuses totaling $600,000 per year. Last year, his broken collarbone resulted in more than $330,000 in lost income.

Sherman’s contract carries a whopping $2 million in per-game roster bonuses. Few players have ever had that much ($125,000 per game) tied to being on the game-day roster. It’s believed that the 49ers sold Sherman on such a significant amount by pointing out that Colin Kaepernick had the same amount of per-game roster bonuses.

Authentic Womens Mike Fisher Jersey That’s accurate. But current 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, the highest paid player in NFL history, has only $800,000 in annual per-game roster bonuses.

Authentic Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey Assuming that a good agent could have at least cut that amount in half, with the balance becoming base salary, Sherman would have been assured of earning another $1 million not tied to the number of games he actually plays.

Mayowa was released by the Cowboys last week after spending two years with the team. He had six sacks in his first year with Dallas, but only had one last season and has nine for his five-year NFL career.

The Jets had 28 sacks last season and ranked 28th in the league in that category, so they’d likely be hoping for something Joaquin Benoit Youth Jersey closer to Mayowa’s 2016 production if they do strike a deal with him on Monday.

I think you contradicted yourself in one short email. Just because the Patriots weren’t very good on special teams in one game in the Super Bowl doesn’t mean they don’t value the third phase as much or more than other teams.

College basketball player begins his quest to turn NFL heads

Posted on by

INDIANAPOLIS Greg Senat always dreamed of participating in March Madness growing up in Elmont. It just did not look quite like this.
Youth Antti Raanta Premier White Reebok Jersey: NHL Arizona Coyotes #32 Away
Andrew Shaw Mens Jersey Senat is at the NFL Scouting Combine trying to impress teams and convince them he is worth drafting next month. The 6-foot-6, 302-pounder went to Wagner to play basketball, which he did for four years there. But he also has played football for the past two years, and now the tackle is hoping to play in the NFL instead of the NBA.

I think Terry Bradshaw Jersey they just see me as a tackle, someone who they have to put a little time into to teach me the game but who can play anywhere, Senat said. I would love to be a left tackle in the NFL. That’s the pinnacle there, and I think I can definitely do that.

As for basketball, the fifth-year senior now just watches his former Wagner teammates. The Seahawks are 23-8 after Saturday’s NEC Tournament victory against Robert Morris and will play LIU Brooklyn in the final Tuesday.

Shout-out to those guys, Senat said. Keep working and make it to the NCAA Tournament.

Elite Chris Pronger Jersey And if anyone at the combine wants to test Senat’s hoops skills in a game of one-on-one?

I think everyone here knows I would probably beat them, Senat said.

Well, I don’t even know if it was. But, you know, it was a decision they made, that I agreed with, he said. I’ve already had a couple of offers, but they sound too much like work! That’s the reason I got into this, it wasn’t work; it was love. If someone makes me an offer of something I love if I could do ACC basketball again, which I think is impossible, I would jump at that. Or I would jump at something like it. That’s the way that is.

Patrick’s departure from ESPN was not framed as retirement. The 73-year-old said he was still considering what’s next for me in the press release through the Worldwide Leader.

Based on his description of the final years on the job, Patrick made it sound like he was ready to move on, too.

There are aspects of it I will not miss, he said. Travel now is awful. And it gets worse every day, and it will continue to get worse. I am just so sick of airports and crowded planes and cancellations, you name it. It’s made it a very difficult, not job, but a very difficult existence to do your job.

Source: Bucs sign DE Vinny Curry after releasing Robert Ayers

Posted on by

It is a three-year deal for up to $27 million with a $11.5 million injury guarantee, the source said.

Editor’s Picks 10 NFL free agents who landed in perfect spots Jimmy Graham can be a red zone monster for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

Here’s who else signed with an ideal team this offseason.

Curry is the third defensive lineman the Bucs have signed this free-agency period, along with former Eagles teammate Beau Allen and defensive tackle Mitch Unrein.

Curry has not missed a regular-season game in four years, with 22 sacks since 2012.

His best season came in 2014, when he finished with 9.0 sacks.

Last year, he had 3.0 sacks but managed 41 quarterback hurries.

They even sent one of their food trucks to the Baltimore airport to greet Crabtree ahead of his visit with the Ravens.

Crabtree is the sixth athlete to be inducted into the exclusive free crab cakes club, joining former Ravens wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, Orioles shortstop Manny Machado, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, North Carolina alumni Justin Jackson, and WWE star Roman Reigns, according to Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports.

There will be no discounts,” McCartney said. The pitches were strong, without many upsets. Arizona pushed its strong core of young premier players (David Johnson, Chandler Jones, Patrick Peterson).

That’s good news for the entire cornerback market. By addressing their cornerback question marks via trades, the Rams did every team interested in upgrading at the position a favor. It: A) Took one of the teams most desperate for cornerbacks out of the free agency market, and B) Guaranteed that Johnson would become available. That’s more talent to pick from and less competition to parse through it.

Report: Scandrick, Hankins to visit Redskins

Posted on by

Cornerback Orlando Scandrick and defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins will visit the Washington Redskins on Sunday following their respective releases from the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports. Scandrick was cut by the Cowboys following a 10-year stint with the club. He made 38 tackles in 11 games last season, failing to record an interception for the first time since 2012. Hankins was given his walking papers from the Colts just one season into a three-year deal he inked last offseason. He recorded 44 tackles and two sacks, but was deemed a misfit in new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus’ system.

The other notable signing was safety Marcus Gilchrist. Gilchrist is an experienced player who has started 13 or more games in each of the last five years. The Raiders needed to replace Reggie Nelson and his locker room presence, and though Gilchrist doesn’t have the talent of another free agent like Jacob Markstrom Youth jersey Tre Boston, he does give the team a safety to pair with Karl Joseph in case Obi Melifonwu isn’t ready.

JuJu Smith-Schuster continues to win the social media game, this time against Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. Burfict is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s PED policy. His appeal will argue he was on prescribed medication for a concussion suffered on Dec. 4, a game in Cincinnati where Smith-Schuster delivered a devastating hit to the linebacker. The Pittsburgh Steelers receiver is not buying the excuse.

Game Mens Randy Bullock Jersey The only way the Bears would鈥檝e been fine with Fuller going to a divisional rival is if the Packers offered the cornerback so much that Chicago is convinced Green Bay overpaid so severely that the team damaged itself. At $14 million per year, it really wasn鈥檛 a tough call for the Bears.

Walk-off workout: Nationals practice game-ending trots

Posted on by

Bryce Harper pantomimed a swing, flipped his imaginary bat, pointed to where the home dugout would be and trotted around the bases while the 100 or so Washington fans surrounding the practice field roared.
D.J. Alexander Youth Nike Olive/Gold 2017 Salute to Service Limited NFL Jersey - Seattle Seahawks #58 Jerseys
They all ran around the bases like it was a home run, Martinez said. If it was me, I would have walked to first base and got a base hit, and game over.

It was the start of a budding rivalry as the teams were both in the Northwest Division for more than a decade and now face each other in Central Division matchups several times per year.

The latest will take place on Tuesday when the Avalanche come to Minnesota in need of a win versus a Wild team that may be bent on revenge.

It has been barely a week since the Wild visited Denver and limped home after a humbling 7-1 loss to Colorado — a game that both teams will certainly have in mind during this rematch.

The difference in that game is we came out and had a real good start, Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog said Monday after the team practiced in Colorado, Joe Mixon Jersey then boarded an eastbound plane.

We seem to feed off a good start, but we’re going to expect these guys to come out hard and to play a lot harder than they did in our building. I’m sure they want to show us they’re not ready to give up a playoff spot to us, so it’s going to be a fun game.
Elite Womens Torry Holt Jersey
The Colorado goaltending situation is in flux. Jonathan Bernier had to leave Saturday’s 5-2 win over the Coyotes when he took a puck to the head. If he cannot go in Minnesota and has to miss time, the Avalanche are confident that mainstay Semyon Varlamov can fill the gap in the crease.

Kerr believes young people will help create change. All I’ve really done is expressed my outrage and my concern, he said.

Kerr said he’d like to do more, perhaps getting my team involved.

I have been truly inspired by what I’m seeing lately from the kids at Douglas High School, Kerr said. I’m inspired by what’s happening. It feels real. For the first time, it feels like something’s happening.

Brandon Linder Mens Jersey Kerr’s father, Malcolm, president of the American University of Beirut, was murdered in Beirut when Kerr was 18 and a freshman at the University of Arizona.

I know how the Parkland families feel, or the Aurora families, or Sandy Hook, Kerr said. I know what it feels like. I met family members from Las Vegas. I know what that feels like. It’s awful. It’s devastating. It’s horrible.

Chris Paul’s hot play moves him up to No. 11, one spot ahead of the injured Curry. During the past five games, Paul is averaging 19.4 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 8.0 APG, 1.4 SPG and 2.4 3PG.

After being released Friday by the Seahawks, Sherman said he had received preliminary interest from the Titans, Lions, Raiders, Texans, Buccaneers and Packers, as well as the 49ers. San Francisco ended up being the choice, which means two games against his former team in Seattle each regular season.

In adding Sherman, the 49ers filled what was arguably the biggest hole on their team with the most proven veteran cornerback on the market. San Francisco allowed a Total QBR of Authentic Steve Carlton Jersey 87 last season, second-worst in the league. At the NFL scouting combine, Lynch said it didn’t take a savant to see the team’s need at the position.

Shead’s agent, Cameron Foster, told ESPN that the NFL recently informed the Seahawks that Shead’s contract was going to toll. But general manager John Schneider had already assured Shead that he would be an unrestricted free agent.

John Schneider called me saying they were going to release DeShawn on Monday because, per the league rule, it’s the NFL’s position that DeShawn’s contract is to toll, Foster said. But it’s our position, the NFL Players Association’s position and the Seattle Seahawks’ position that it does not toll. John had already informed DeShawn that his contract was expiring after this year, and the Seattle Seahawks are just living up to their word.

Police say the 6-foot-4, 287-pound Gotsis raped a 25-year-old woman on March 9, 2013. The woman reported last month, on Feb. 1, that she had been raped.

Limited Youth Adrian Amos Jersey We were recently informed of an investigation into an alleged incident involving Adam Gotsis that occurred in 2013 when he was in college, the Broncos said in a statement Monday. Our organization was aware of his arrest on March 7, and it is our understanding that no determination has been made at this time as to whether any charges will be filed.

This issue was promptly reported to the NFL as soon as we learned of it, and we will remain in communication with the league office regarding this matter.
Elite Harrison Butker Jersey
Gotsis’ attorney, Sara Becker, denied the allegations in a statement issued later Monday.
