Body reportedly found at New Jersey home of Giants CB Janoris Jenkins

A body was reportedly found Tuesday at the New Jersey home of Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins.

Jenkins was Womens Cory Schneider Jersey out of the state when the incident occurred, according to a report from TMZ Sports. Bergen County authorities are investigating the matter.

Fair Lawn Police Sgt. Brian Metzler told The Bergen County Record that authorities received a 911 call Tuesday at approximately 10:22 a.m. Jenkins typically spends the offseason in Florida, according to the Record’s report.

One of the key components of the NFL’s announcement on Winston’s suspension: A future violation of the Personal Conduct Policy will result in more substantial discipline, including a potential ban from the NFL.

The Bucs’ first three games, now with backup Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to be the starter, are against the Saints, Eagles and Steelers. Winston completed 282 of 442 passes for 3,504 yards and 19 TDs with 11 interceptions in 2017 as David Backes Jersey the Bucs went 5-11.

The NFL said in a release that Winston has advised the league office that he accepts this discipline and will not appeal.

Duvernay-Tardif, who has spent all four of his NFL seasons with the Chiefs, graduated with his medical degree from Montreal’s McGill University in late May.

Since the day I got drafted, I promised myself I was going to finish my studies and get that M.D. while I was still playing, Duvernay-Tardif told ESPN at the time. It’s one of those life projects that you promise yourself you’re going to accomplish, and I’m on the verge of doing it, so I’m pretty excited.

Drew Stanton is back at quarterback, getting his third start of the season.

Posted on by

If he plays out these last two games, there will be a scary symmetry to the Cardinals’ QB starts this season: seven for Carson Palmer, five for Blaine Gabbert, four for Stanton. You don’t want to have that kind of balance in your quarterback room, obviously. Stanton was solid in his two earlier starts, and he rarely turns the ball over. The way the Cards’ defense is playing, that’s a major plus.
Men's Colorado Avalanche #45 Jonathan Bernier Adidas Black Authentic 1917-2017 100th Anniversary NHL Jersey
There is another major reason Stanton is in the lineup, and it goes to the very basics of the NFL. The Cardinals have not been scoring touchdowns. Their last one came in the second quarter of the Dec. 3 game against the Rams, more than 10 quarters ago. There have been none – but 10 Phil Dawson field goals – since then. As well as the defense has played, that’s not going to generate victories. David Johnson had 20 touchdowns by himself a season ago. Authentic Jonny Brodzinski Jersey This season, the Cardinals’ offense as a whole has scored only 23.

I mean, it’s Christmas. Who wouldn’t want to win? A victory could make things interesting for the last game of the season in Seattle too. The Seahawks have to go to Dallas Sunday and if they lose and the Cardinals win, the Cards would have a chance to tie the Seahawks in the standings with a finale win in Seattle. It doesn’t help with the playoffs but it would mean something to these players to finish strong.

As a pro, he’s coming home.

So crazy how things go full Erik Gudbranson Womens Jersey circle, Kirk said. It feels like the stars aligned and it was just meant for me to be here.

General Manager Steve Keim said he and coach Steve Wilks had been talking about Kirk for quite some

time and as a hometown guy, caught the Cardinals’ attention. (Keim also praised the level of local high school football for producing NFL-level talent like Kirk.)

Not only is he a great player on the field but a class act off, Keim said. He fits our DNA, as coach has talked about, over and over.

Kirk played in college with tight end Ricky Seals-Jones and cornerback Brandon Williams, and in high school with running back D.J. Foster. He also has worked out with new teammate Larry Fitzgerald, and the two communicate regularly.

Mike McCarthy: ‘We’re going to go RB by committee’

Posted on by

The Green Bay Packers have a capable stable of young running backs with Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones.
Youth Chris Kelly Authentic White Reebok Jersey: NHL Ottawa Senators #22 Away
Each player provides a unique skill set for the offense, and arguments could be made one of the running backs could carry a full workload.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy, Christian McCaffrey Jersey however, has a vision on how to deploy his backfield.

The fact of the matter is we’re going to go running back by committee, McCarthy told Rob Demovsky of ESPN’s NFL Nation. But if one of them would emerge as that full-time guy then you have to have that ability to… adjust to that.

While each running back could carry the load if called upon, the Packers apparently won’t rely on a single rusher over the long haul given the physical stresses of the position.

You’ve got to be honest about that position; there’s not too many guys that can play 19 games, McCarthy told ESPN. To be the workhorse and do it week in and week out for 19 games, you’re a unique player. Your availability is at the top of the line because that’s such a demanding position.

This unit remains a question mark. What can we expect? Cousins will be helped by one of the best receiving duos in the league, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, and with the return of running back Dalvin Cook from an ACL injury, these Vikings will finish at the top of the division and make a postseason run. Fact/tidbit/piece of news learned from OTAs/minicamps Dalvin Cook started participating in team drills during the Vikings third week of OTAs. The second-year running back tore his ACL early last season, four games into a fast start to his rookie year. It looks like Cook is on track for full Michael Conforto Authentic Jersey participation in training camp and will be ready to go Week 1. Best offseason tweet from a team’s player or coach GRADE: B+ The league’s No. 1 defense will be even better with the additions of veteran defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and first round cornerback Mike Hughes.

It also awarded the Yankees the first round of the Subway Series, following Friday night’s win.

The Yankees won their fourth straight game and their ninth in their last 10 to improve to 42-18.

They stayed a half-game ahead of the Red Sox in the American League East. Boston beat the White Sox in the afternoon.

The Yankees are now 11-3 in one-run games. Last year, they were 18-26 in them.

The Mets have lost eight straight.

Zach Ertz: ‘To see Julie’s hard work pay off is satisfying to me, too’

Posted on by

This is an online exclusive story from ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue 2017. Subscribe today!

Julie and Zach Ertz just might be able to lay claim to the title of world’s fittest couple. Julie, a member of the 2015 World Cup-winning team, and Zach, a tight end for the Philadelphia Eagles, married in March after more than four years together. To celebrate the occasion? They posed for the Body Issue, of course, less than a week before the big day. (What did you do for your wedding photos?) Afterward, the pair spoke with reporter Morty Ain about body confidence, training together and being way too competitive at board games.

Sometime after the 2015 All-Star break, home runs skyrocketed. It wasn’t immediately apparent that season, but in 2016 analysts and journalists took note that MLB was approaching its home run record. Although hitters fell just short in 2016, they smashed the record in 2017 by almost 500.

They’re on a slightly slower pace this year as compared to 2017, but typically home run hitting increases in the summer months, so MLB might break the record yet again.

Initially, the culprit looked like to be the launch angle revolution — hitters were changing their angle of attack in hitting the ball, consciously attempting to hit more fly balls to hit more home runs. While the leaguewide fly ball rate has risen since 2014, the change was not dramatic enough to account for the rise in home runs — MLB ran a higher fly ball percentage from 2006-11 than from 2015-17, but home runs were hit at a slower pace.

Coming into the season, Washington’s lineup appeared loaded. Bryce Harper, who returned to MVP form last season before getting hurt in August, was fully healthy again. So too was sparkplug Adam Eaton, presumably, after missing most of last year. Hit machine Daniel Murphy was coming off microfracture surgery, but that was all the way back in October, giving him plenty of time to heal. Veteran Ryan Zimmerman was coming off his best season in years, young speedster Trea Turner was only going to continue to get better and glue guy Anthony Rendon remained one of the game’s most underrated hitters.

At least, that was the glass-half-full outlook. But so far, it’s been a glass-half-empty kind of season for the Nationals’ offense.

To be sure, injuries have played a key role. Eaton missed two months with an ankle problem that may or may not have been a byproduct of last year’s season-ending mishap. Murphy’s recovery was slower than expected, forcing him to miss the first 10 weeks of the season. Zimmerman has been out since mid-May with an oblique issue, and Rendon missed three weeks with a broken toe. Through it all, nobody panicked.

Just wait until they get healthy, or so went the refrain.

NFL, Nashville city officials, Titans still working on draft venue

Posted on by

Nashville will host the 2019 NFL Draft, but where?
Youth Jonathan Isaac Authentic White Nike Jersey: NBA Orlando Magic #1 Association Edition
City officials, the Titans and the NFL still are discussing Authentic Ethan Pocic Jersey the site. City officials want to use the stage at Ascend Amphitheater, an outdoor venue.

Our pitch, my preference is Ascend Amphitheater, Butch Spyridon, CEO of the city’s convention and visitors bureau, said via Paul Kuharsky of It’s the money shot for the city — a music venue with the skyline behind you.

In the tweet, the 36-year-old boasted that the letter’s author must not follow his Instagram, where his whole life is documented.

The letter gives Hardwick the options of ignoring the letter and facing the consequences of supposed damning evidence or paying the four-figure amount as compensation for what the incognito person describes as time I put into investigating you.

What a blackmail letter looks like…

I felt like I was ready after last time, Bumgarner said. As long as the front office says I’m ready, I guess I’m ready, Bumgarner said after Thursday’s rehab outing (via the San Jose Mercury News). I feel ready, though.

His return comes at a good time. The Giants this week placed right-hander Jeff Samardzija on the disabled list with a right-shoulder tightness after his one-inning start on Tuesday.

San Francisco could certainly use a little good news. It’s 4-6 in its last 10 games and tied for third in the NL West with a 27-30 record.

These, by and large, are artificial deadlines this time of year, and the Deshaun Watson Jersey Giants will continue to treat them as such this week as they gather for a three-day minicamp — the final practices before a six-week break prior to training camp. This camp means nothing as far as advancing Odell Beckham Jr.’s physical progress. He will attend the mandatory minicamp — as head coach Pat Shurmur last week said he would — but do not expect him to be running around and catching passes with the other receivers.

Former Eagles staffer fired by Chip Kelly gets Super Bowl ring anyway

Posted on by

Carol Cullen served as an executive assistant with Authentic Josh Ferguson Jersey the Philadelphia Eagles from 1985 Blake Griffin Authentic Jersey to 2014 before former head coach Chip Kelly decided her position was no longer necessary in his management of the front office.
Youth Adidas Vancouver Canucks #1 Kirk Mclean Premier Green Salute to Service NHL Jersey
Despite not being a staff member during the Eagles run to their first Super Bowl victory in February, the team elected to award her with a ring anyway.

It was really a special night, Cullen said after getting her new piece of jewelry last week. And I just feel honored and humbled that I was a part of it.

The Bills have huge question marks up front this season, after the losses of center Eric Wood and guard Richie Incognito, and the trade of left tackle Cordy Glenn. And it’s something that running back LeSean McCoy can’t deny is an issue.

Losing Richie and Eric, I’d be lying if I told you it didn’t matter, McCoy said, via Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News. Some people might say that to kind of nip it in the bud and get it out of the way, but those guys are great players. Eric is very smart, intelligent, plays hard, he’s a veteran. He’s been in different scenarios and situations, so having that leadership is big. And we don’t have that because he’s gone.

People can say what they want about Richie, but he’s one of the best blockers I’ve played with. He’s aggressive, which we all know, and he’s tough, so I’ll miss him, also. A lot of my best runs were behind him.

That’s one thing. The other part is guys got to step up…. We have some good backups and some guys competing for starting jobs, and that’s what the NFL is all about. I mean, who was Tom Brady before Tom Brady? He got an opportunity, he made the best of it. Everybody who has an opportunity has got to make the best of it.

That is one way to look at it.

4 young Giants players catching Snacks Harrison’s eye

Posted on by

The Giants are the seventh stop (including two with the Dolphins) for Francis since he went undrafted out of Maryland in 2013.
Men's Dallas Stars #9 Mike Modano Reebok White Third Premier NHL Jersey
The 6-foot-5, 337-pounder played career-highs of six games and 164 defensive snaps and totaled 18 tackles for his hometown Redskins last season — including two games against the Giants — but was released shortly after the NFL Draft.

One day after Francis cleared waivers, he was on a plane to New Jersey. He signed without leaving town and quickly bashed the Redskins — and their racist logo — on social media.

They gave me chances to play, Francis said. It was more so that if you watch the film, the one guy in Authentic Clyde Drexler Jersey the last six games who showed up every week, made plays every week and dominated the line of scrimmage was me. But I was the one who got released. Film don’t lie.

I’ve been in the league a while, and I come in with a lot of experience in different places playing different schemes, Francis said. One thing I think has been a benefit to my career so far is because I’ve never been given the opportunities I felt like I deserved I always had to be the swing guy. I always had to be able to play nose tackle, three-technique, four-technique, five-technique.

It’s a team that, in 2017, started a wide receiver who repeatedly blasted his own teammates on social media. And now, with minicamp underway, the team’s best player — perennial MVP candidate Antonio Brown Felix Hernandez Youth Jersey — has made his own headlines. More NFL news Roddy White thinks Julio Jones should be paid more than Antonio Brown Brown, of course, has never been one to shy away from headlines, what with his penchant for drawing fines or showing off Rolls-Royces at training camp.

But it’s his newfound distaste for making headlines that apparently has him, well, making headlines again. Addressing reporters on Tuesday, the four-time All-Pro spent the majority of a more-than-seven-minute interview suggesting he doesn’t truly have freedom in his job or in his life because you guys put pressure on me every day.

Why the Bears believe they can be more than a top 10 defense in 2018

Posted on by

Vic Fangio is entering his fourth year as the Bears’ defensive coordinator, and does so with a certain level of continuity he hasn’t had in years past. To wit: The 2017 Bears had to replace five of their top 20 snap-getters from 2016; that number, in practice, was actually six after Jerrell Freeman suffered a season-ending injury against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1.

The 2018 Bears will have to replace five of their 20 most-used players from 2017, to be fair, but consider where each of those players ranked in terms of defensive snaps received the previous year: 2017 players to replace in 2018: Christian Jones (8th), Mitch Unrein (13th), Pernell McPhee (14th), Lamarr Houston (17th), Quintin Demps (20th) 2016 players to replace in 2017: Tracy Porter (1st), Jerrell Freeman (4th), Harold Jones-Quartey (5th), Cornelius Washington (14th), Jacoby Glenn (18th), Demontre Hurst (19th) The point being this: There’s far more year-to-year consistency on the top end of Fangio’s current defense than he had a year ago.

Hamilton fans chanted Manziel’s name Friday night as Tiger-Cats starter Jeremiah Masoli played longer than expected in the CFL exhibition game against Toronto.

Manziel entered with 3:38 remaining in the second quarter, via Mike Rodak of ESPN, and the backup quarterback completed 9 of 12 passes for 80 yards. Manziel played five possessions.

Masoli played seven possessions, throwing for 56 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. But Hamilton coach June Jones already has declared that Masoli absolutely will start the regular-season opener June 16.

Manziel played two Spring League games in April before deciding to sign with the Tiger-Cats, where he will try to resurrect his career. A first-round pick of the Browns in 2014, the former Heisman Trophy winner went 2-6 with seven interceptions and seven touchdowns in two NFL seasons.

Luck wouldn’t let another take the helm, anyway. He’s a selfless teammate but shares control of his rehab with nobody, probably why Colts owner Jim Irsay dropped several references last year to the four inches between (Luck’s) ears when Luck’s rehab was going slowly. Yes sir, Reich is right: Nobody else will steer this ship.

But Luck prefers a race car analogy.

Kyle Rudolph is getting used to regular checkups

Posted on by

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph must go to a different dentist than the rest of us.
Nike Men's DeMar DeRozan White Swingman Jersey - Team USA #9 2016 Olympics Basketball
Recounting his offseason ankle surgery, Rudolph shrugged it off and said it was routine.

I’ve had five surgeries in the last 10 years, Rudolph said, via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. It’s funny when you sit there, the nurses are getting Womens Will Dissly Jersey ready for pre-op, and the doctors are talking to you. Blidi Wreh-Wilson Jersey I honestly feel like I’m in the dentist office getting my teeth cleaned.

He will be re-evaluated by trainers Saturday.

Not sure of the severity of it, really, whether it’s cramps or whatever, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. We got an IV in him right when he came out of the game.

The Ravens knew it was going to take time for Jackson to develop. Remember, Jackson is learning to play from under center and call plays with much more verbiage than his college days. His throws have been inconsistent, but he has been explosive when he scrambles in the open field.

Having to call plays is a huge change from the way the majority of offenses are called in college. That’s especially true of more up tempo offenses have quicker ways of relaying plays than the quarterback telling the play to everyone in the huddle. I wouldn’t say that is surprising or a big deal.

The bigger thing I’d take away from this is that they are making Jackson learn to play from under center. It is easy to see that Jackson is made for more of a spread style offense.

Usually a staple of those offenses is having the quarterback in shotgun so he can make quick reads and throws. It doesn’t bode well that the Ravens aren’t adjusting around Jackson, but that may come when he becomes the guy.

Corey Kluber pitches eight strong innings to improve to 10-2 after the Indians’ 9-2 win over the Tigers.

Posted on by

DETROIT Eventually, a team from the AL Central will figure out a way to beat Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber.
Damian Jones Authentic Gold Men's Jersey: Golden State Warriors #15 City Edition Nike NBA
Kluber continued his dominance of the division on Sunday, allowing two runs in eight innings as the Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 9-2.

The win improved Kluber (10-2) to 5-0 with a 0.76 ERA in five starts against division rivals this season, and he has won his last 11 decisions against teams from the AL Central.

Melky Cabrera and Erik Gonzalez each drove in three runs for Cleveland, which expanded its divisional lead to five games over the Tigers.

Artie Lewicki (0-2) took the loss, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk in five innings. He struck out four in his third major-league start.

Artie hung in there and kept us in the game, but Kluber didn’t give us many chances, Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said.

The two-time All-Pro and 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year could be subjected to $100,000 in fines for skipping the mandatory portion of the program.

Yates: 9-7. Quarterback play can go a long way in the NFL, and despite role holes on both sides, the Seahawks have an outstanding signal-caller in Russell Wilson and arguably the best defensive quarterback in football in Bobby Wagner.

Sando: 9-7. Wilson and an improved run game led by healthier backs compensate some for a D that is no longer Womens Jim Brown Jersey great, but not as bad as the personnel subtractions suggest it could be.

Bowen: 9-7. Wilson’s playmaking ability and intangibles will always keep the Seahawks in the hunt. But I have concerns about Russ Grimm Authentic Jersey a Seattle defense that has to replace multiple impact players, plus an NFC West slate that is much tougher to navigate.
