NFL Draft 2018: LSU RB Derrius Guice falls to Redskins at No. 59 due to unreported off-field incidents, report says

Posted on by

Derrius Guice’s fall in the NFL Draft has been the story of the broadcast for each of the first two rounds, but he finally found a home with the Redskins at pick No. 59.

NFL Media gave a reason as to why he slipped during the broadcast.

Daeshon Hall Game Jersey Guice apparently had a couple of off-field incidents that went unreported when he was at LSU. He was also described as high maintenance and immature.

Yes, I still bunt, Gregorius said.

Try to stay consistent, he added. I do have a lot of home runs, but it’s not like I’m going out there trying to hit them. I’m not the power guy.

Austin is awaiting word on his appeal of a suspension for charging the mound during an April 11 brawl with Boston. Still eligible to play until then, the rookie homered in the third to give New York a 5-2 lead and later doubled.

He should slide right into a starting spot on the inside of Vic Fangio’s defense in Chicago and they’ll hope for the same kind of production as he moves to the pro Chris Stewart Jersey level.

Maccagnan’s manner has been embraced by Jets ownership. But as well-liked and respected as he is, Thursday’s first round of the NFL draft represents a critical pressure point in Maccagnan’s tenure as Jets general manager, which is entering its fourth season.

Maccagnan cannot miss with whichever quarterback he selects with the third overall pick in this draft and survive to pick another one.

Not counting his 2015 fourth-round selection of Bryce Petty, Maccagnan already is 0-for-1 at drafting quarterbacks high 鈥?picking Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the 2016 draft, a choice that was not universally embraced inside the Jets’ building.

If Maccagnan’s next pick 鈥?whether it’s USC’s Sam Darnold, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, UCLA’s Josh Rosen or whomever 鈥?doesn’t become the franchise quarterback the Jets are so starved to find, owners Woody and Chris Johnson will have no recourse but to fire him.

Hackenberg, as no Jets fan needs to be reminded, has not played a single snap in his two NFL seasons and, barring a miracle, he’ll soon be released from the organization having never played a single down.

When the Yankees need a pick-me-up, their do-it-all superstar usually is up for the job.

Posted on by

Following a cold night of misery at Yankee Stadium, they needed a jumpstarting Saturday afternoon.
Men's Adidas Tobias Rieder Authentic Purple NHL Jersey: Arizona Coyotes #8 Fights Cancer Practice
Judge put one in the seats to stake the Yankees to an early lead and the momentum carried into a 9-1 laugher over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Venturing east to Washington, the nation’s capital became a platform for message-laden sneakers. Stephen Curry championed his past work with former President Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance when the Warriors visited the Wizards — but not the White House. His Curry 4s featured the MBK Alliance logo along the collar with gold accents, and he later auctioned off the game-worn pair to raise money for the foundation.

We’re continuing to raise awareness on supporting young men and boys of color in their pursuit of achievement and the highest success in life, Curry said.

Elite Mens Drew Stanton Jersey LeBron James had his own message when the Cavaliers headed to D.C., wearing a mismatched white and black pair of the LeBron 15 model, with the word EQUALITY stitched into the back of each shoe, along with tonal embroidery of the same word in fifteen languages, representing the diversity of the country.

DeShon Elliott, Texas: He had a strong 2017 season as one of the nation’s leaders in INTs (6) to go along with 63 tackles and three passes broken up. Has good size and instincts as a free safety.

Jordan Whitehead, Pittsburgh: His three-game suspension to start the 2017 season, which hurt the team, lingers and takes away from his solid 2017 numbers 鈥?60 tackles, three passes broken up and one interception.

Siran Neal, Jacksonville State: A college cornerback who projects as an NFL safety, he had 39 tackles with 11 passes broken up, a forced fumble and an interception in 2017. As a junior, he had 80 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss, a half sack, four passes batted, one forced fumble and an interception.

Twelve Toronto points in six possessions before an open 3-pointer in the right corner by OG Anunoby forced a Wizards timeout. The shot was a near facsimile of what Toronto did in Game 1, when the Raptors worked through a series of actions before reversing the ball to the rookie Mike Gillislee Jersey on the weak side.

Alex Rodriguez admitted to being a little tight off the top and then sounded that way.

Posted on by

When asked at the beginning of Thursday night’s Dodgers-Giants telecast what it is like to be in the ESPN booth on Opening Day, Rodriguez flubbed his first line: A little bit more nerv …, he said, before stopping himself, because he had flipped his own script. A little bit more excitement when you are playing. Up here [in the booth], a little bit more nervous.

Rodriguez settled in and was OK in his debut on the big-game TV analyst stage. It was akin to a 1-for-4 debut with an RBI double. That’s not bad, but not great.

Rodriguez had some moments as he tried to emulate Tim McCarver, whom he watched first-guess during Mets games on WOR as a kid in Miami.

To end the seventh, Rodriguez said he would Bet the house that Giants pitcher Cory Gearrin would throw Chris Taylor a slider. He did and Taylor looked at strike three. This type of stuff is second nature to A-Rod and illuminating for a viewer.

He’s playing extremely well, Blazers guard CJ McCollum said. We’ve got to limit some of his opportunities going forward.

Coming off that pick-and-roll, he’s able to get those floaters and get to the rim, said Portland All-Star Damian Lillard, who finished with 17 points on the night. He’s impacting the game on both ends of the floor.

Holiday has arguably done his most effective work at the defensive end against Portland’s best player. He held Lillard to 0-for-4 shooting, zero points and two turnovers as a primary defender in Game 2. Lillard is now 0-for-8, and the Blazers are 6-for-24 (25 percent) against Holiday in the series.

In my opinion, I think he’s one of the best defenders out there on the perimeter, said Lillard, who typically has his way with most NBA defenses but has yet to find his shot in this series. He’s just playing well. He’s big and crafty. He’s impacting the game on both ends of the floor.

McCollum said he is not surprised by the way Holiday has harassed Portland’s potent pair.

He’s a very good player, McCollum said. I said it coming into this series: He doesn’t get a lot of credit because he’s playing with [Pelicans big man Anthony Davis], and I think you’re starting to see how good he truly is on both ends of the floor.

Even his Pelicans teammates have had to cope with Holiday’s suffocating defense.

Roquan Smith visiting 49ers Tuesday

Posted on by

Limited Jorge Posada Jersey The 49ers took a linebacker in the first round of last year’s draft, but Reuben Foster isn’t with the team for offseason work in the wake of his arrest following an alleged domestic violence incident with his girlfriend in February.
Nike NFL Brendan Langley White Jersey Men's Game: #27 Denver Broncos Road
Limited Greg Robinson Jersey Foster faces three felony charges as a result of the incident and he’s had other off-field issues that make it hard for the 49ers to count on him as a building block for their defense. That could lead them to another linebacker in the first round this year.

The Mets threatened late, but relievers Sammy Solis, Ryan Madson and Brandon Kintzler escaped jams. Sean Doolittle closed for his third save.

The Mets called up RHP Gerson Bautista from Double-A Binghamton and optioned RHP Hansel Robles to Triple-A Las Vegas. The 22-year-old Bautista, acquired from Boston last summer for reliever Addison Reed, made his major league debut and pitched a scoreless ninth, giving up a double and walk.

Robles was 2-0 with a 3.38 ERA in eight games. He gave up Howie Kendrick’s homer in the ninth Monday night. He probably didn’t deserve to go down, Callaway acknowledged.

The Nationals put OF Brian Goodwin (bruised left wrist) on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Monday. He hit .250 in 13 games. OF Andrew Stevenson was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse. He batted .158 in 37 games for Washington last year.

But playoff appearances aren’t common in Baltimore lately, so perhaps it’s time for a change.

The Ravens quarterback said he planned to hold a pre-training camp camp Andre Dawson Jersey with his new receivers, which is something coach John Harbaugh specifically asked for earlier this offseason. From the Manning brothers at Duke to Mark Sanchez and Jets West, quarterbacks have been convening offsite for years but Flacco has resisted the trend.

Making it more helpful is the fact the Ravens turned over their receiving corps this offseason, adding Michael Crabtree and John Brown, and subtracting Mike Wallace, Jeremy Maclin and Michael Campanaro.

There’s no doubt, that stuff is important and we’ll do it. I’ve already talked about it with John and Mike, Flacco said, via Jeff Zrebeic of the Baltimore Sun. I think sometimes those things are just as much or more about developing a relationship with those guys and developing that trust, and for those guys to see that I really like who they are as football players and for them to see hopefully they like who I am as a football player. I think when you can get that relationship going, that’s going to help your football team out a ton.

Source: Chargers rescind Chris McCain’s RFA tender

Posted on by

Another pass rusher has entered the free-agency market, more than a month after the market opened.
Men's Authentic Majestic Johnny Bench White Home Jersey - #5 MLB Cincinnati Reds Flex Base
Per a league source, the Chargers have rescinded the restricted free-agency tendered placed on defensive end Chris McCain.

The Chargers applied a right-of-first-refusal tender to McCain, who had five sacks in 2017, his first year with the Chargers. The former Cal defender had joined the Chargers in 2016, as a member of the practice squad.

Before its Game 2 loss, Philadelphia had been 9-0 in Embiid’s absence. Brown said again on Tuesday that the club badly needs Embiid back, pointing to the team’s struggles in the second quarter of Game 2 as an example. Miami outscored Philadelphia by 21 points in the second quarter.

We had no semblance of order, offensively especially, that his presence, availability, makes the world go around, Brown said of Embiid, who averaged 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 63 games in the regular season.

The NFL has informed me that I have tested positive for a substance on the banned substance list, Sanchez wrote. I was blindsided by the news and I want to say unequivocally that I have never cheated or attempted to gain a competitive advantage by using a banned performance enhancing substance. During the past 9 years as an NFL player I have been subject to 73 drug tests 鈥?an average of over 8 tests per season 鈥?and all but one have been clean. I have taken the same regimen of supplements for the past five years without any issues. The timing and results of my tests Authentic LaMichael James Jersey establish circumstances of unknowing supplement contamination, not the use of performance enhancing substances.

Sanchez, who spent last season with the Bears and was last a starter in 2015 with the Eagles, is currently a free agent. He may still sign with an NFL team this offseason, but he won’t be eligible to appear in the first four games of the season.

Lillard was particularly inaccurate when defended by Holiday, missing all four of his shot attempts (he’s 0-for-8 with Holiday as a primary defender in the series, per ESPN Stats & Information) and committing a pair of turnovers.

Holiday, Pelicans in driver’s seat vs. Blazers

Posted on by

This series was supposed to be about the Portland Trail Blazers’ dynamic backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum.
Jamie Benn Men's Nike White 2014 Authentic Olympic Hockey Jersey - Home Team Canada #22 Jerseys
Instead, it has been a referendum on the best guard on the court — New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday — whose relentless defensive pressure and unstoppable drives into the lane have earned New Orleans a commanding 2-0 advantage with Game 3 of the best-of-seven Western Conference playoff series set for Thursday night at the Smoothie King Center.
Authentic Mens Tevin Coleman Jersey
I think once I surpassed everything with my family and made sure they were OK, things were definitely put into perspective, Holiday said. My family’s most important to me.

Gentry said he was cautioning his players not to assume the playoff series was over despite having won the Cody Eakin Authentic Jersey first two on the road.

We got two wins, Gentry said. We’ve still got to get two more wins, so we’re not overly excited about anything…. We’ve done an exceptional job on those two guards, and you never know when they’re just going to go off, and so we’re not celebrating anything.

But Olsen, the first tight end in NFL history to have three straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons, could have other options if ESPN or another network offers a job for this season. ESPN is two weeks to a month from making an announcement on Gruden’s replacement and the rest of the MNF crew.
Authentic Mens Jeff Heuerman Jersey
My preference would be to continue to play, Olsen told ESPN.com as the Panthers completed the second day of offseason workouts. I still love playing for the Panthers and I would prefer to finish my career at Carolina. I wouldn’t see myself love to go play elsewhere.

But this is the last year of my contract. A lot of that plays into what the future holds. Where we are in all of that, I’m not really sure. As the offseason plays out, it would be nice to kind of know what my future is past this year here in Carolina. That would make a lot of the other decisions easier.

Olsen admitted if ESPN were to make him an offer, it is something he would have to at least consider.

The 20-year-old nicknamed Flatline has the perfect mentality to lead a franchise.

Posted on by

The 2018 NFL draft truly begins with the second overall pick since the Cleveland Browns are destined to select a quarterback with the top choice. The New York Giants have plenty of options. 

Except for a two-run homer by Thames that proved the difference Tuesday night, Reds pitchers have done well holding Milwaukee’s offense in check the last two games.

It’s getting better, manager Bryan Price said of his rotation. It is. It seems like every year we start the year with a new group of pitchers. This particular group, if we give them the repetitions we need, they’re going to evolve into a really nice starting rotation. We’ve talked about growing pains so many times the last few years with all the young pitchers … there’s nothing you can really do other than give these guys the opportunity for them to pitch for them to learn through game situations.

We’ve begun to see that over the last couple of years, players [are] moving from helmets that rank in the poorly performing areas to those that are ranging closer to the top-performing helmets, Miller said. We think that is an important move, and we think that will improve player health and safety. And the purpose of continuing to rank the helmets, and the purpose of the joint decision to prohibit certain helmets this year, is to increase that continued movement into better-performing helmets.

Ian Rapoport of NFL.com provided more details on the circumstances surrounding the arrest:

Yes, Lynn also gave the obligatory mention of the backups on the roster — Cardale Jones and Geno Smith — adding I wouldn’t look past those two right now. Eventually, though, a replacement must arrive for Rivers, whether its Jones, Smith or a draft pick. Rivers knows this, but he’s also not conceding his job anytime soon.

A sixth first-round quarterback may be a stretch, but the New England Patriots are in a predicament. The Jimmy Garoppolo trade is still a sore spot, and the organization must find Tom Brady’s eventual successor. steelers_004

1st game of Yankees-Tigers doubleheader postponed by rain

Posted on by

Both games of Sunday’s doubleheader between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers have been postponed because of rain.

The games will be made up in a split doubleheader on June 4. The Tigers were scheduled to be off, while the Yankees would have been traveling between games in Baltimore and Toronto.

Game 1 was scratched about three hours before the scheduled first pitch, with Game 2 called in the early afternoon. Rain was forecast to keep falling until Monday morning.

Albert Wilson Elite Jersey We have to wait until we’re playing in better (weather) conditions, Hoyer said, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Zach Cunningham Elite Jersey
Regardless of what type of conditions the Cubs find themselves in, Hoyer told reporters that at some point, the bullpen can’t be taxed as heavily as it has been so far this season.

To be effective and stay healthy long-term, we have to get long starts, Hoyer said, according to the Tribune.

Rizzo was put on the disabled list last week with a stiff lower back that he blamed in part on a hotel room bed in Cincinnati.

Maddon thinks Rizzo looks ready when the team gets back on the field.

I watched him work out in the gym over there, and he looks fine, Maddon said. So I try to trust the guys. I do trust the guys. I ask them questions. When the guys are honest with you, it makes the decision-making so much easier. Mind reading is really difficult.

To make room on the roster, the Cubs optioned infielder Efren Navarro to Triple-A Iowa Sunday.

The Rangers ended up winning the game 3-1 in 10 innings, despite coming in as +270 underdogs at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, tied for Joonas Korpisalo Authentic Jersey the biggest underdogs in a game this season.

Not knowing anything about real dancing, my strength is that, because I’m an athlete, I know what it takes to be the best that you can be, Harding said. I’m definitely not 24 anymore so that’s probably going to be a little bit of an obstacle, but I’m here to bring it.

Game Womens Tarik Cohen Jersey … Who wouldn’t want to be a part of it? To be a part of something so wonderful is very honoring and humbling.

We are positioned in the way the makeup is if a number of quarterbacks are taken, a number of running backs are taken, two or three or those offensive tackles hit, Jones said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Really as much as anything, there could be a couple of guards taken ahead of us. And it’s positioned for a situation to drop. . . . But with what is happening with a little bit of ambiguity on the number of quarterbacks and what we just talked about, there could be an active draft there in the first round.

Coach Jason Garrett is among the team’s contingent at Alabama’s Pro Day, with receiver Calvin Ridley, defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne and linebacker Rashaan Evans as possible targets for the Cowboys. Those are positions of need.

Zack Godley is off to a great start, and so are the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Godley pitched seven scoreless innings, Paul Goldschmidt had an RBI triple and the Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1 on Monday night.

The Diamondbacks won for the sixth time in seven games and matched the best start in franchise history through 10 games. They’re 8-2 for the first time since 2008.

The Jets have added Spencer Long and Travis Swanson to the interior of the offensive line in free agency, but haven’t added any other tackles over the last few weeks.

Elite Stephen Curry Jersey The Raptors are also hoping to win their regular-season finale at Miami and reach 60 victories.

We want sixty, because we know it would be a great achievement for our franchise, said guard Kyle Lowry, who scored 11 points Monday. The important thing, though, is what happens after the Miami game. We’re ready. It doesn’t matter who we play. We just have to play our game.

Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy shared his thoughts on Toronto’s chances in the East.

It turned out awesome. Put on Boise State blue-and-orange and I don’t think it could have turned out better.

Based on a slew of NFL media mock drafts, the Vander Esch family might soon have to get the bus re-painted in Steelers black and gold. Jerian Grant Authentic Jersey No first-round prospect is connected with one team more than Vander Esch is connected with Pittsburgh.

The pairing makes sense, albeit for reasons the Steelers never wanted.

Or are the Ravens hoping for a chance to evaluate Griffin this year, in the hopes of maybe letting him to compete to be the starter in 2019, if they move on from Joe Flacco?
