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

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.

Why can’t these 7 ex-Giants find new teams?

Roberto Alomar Jersey
Whereas most 3-4 defenses put two-gap responsibilities on defensive linemen requiring the discipline to sit back and read which two offensive linemen a running back will try to split Bettcher’s system offers more one-gap responsibility. That means more 1-on-1 battles.

Tomlinson was limited to individual drills during the pre-draft three-day minicamp I was just getting back into the groove of things,he said when asked for an explanation but is participating in 11-on-11 drills during organized team activities.

While the former second-round draft pick is excited to be back in a system that reminds him of coach Nick Saban’s 3-4 attacking defense in college, he also is wary of a sophomore slump. How does he prevent it?
Draymond Green Jersey
While there might have been some concern from outside observers surrounding a dip of production when compared to his rookie season, Rankins has a simple message to doubters.

Get some film and watch it, Rankins said emphatically. I think what I do speaks for itself. I think I’m versatile. I can rush the passer, I can stop the run, I can do whatever the defense needs me to do. I’ll always carry that with me in and out of every season, and my mindset won’t change.

With the 6-foot-2, 305-pound Rankins in the middle, the Saints have a player capable of commanding blockers, a scenario that frees up the edge rushers, such as defensive end Cameron Jordan.

Rankins can also affect the quarterback outside of a sack, as he finished tied for second with defensive end Alex Okafor on the Saints defense with nine quarterback hits in 2017.

Given his knack for causing havoc outside of what shows up on a stat sheet, there is plenty of like about Rankins in 2018.

The Saints selected defensive end Marcus Davenport in the first round (14th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft. And with Davenport, Jordan and Okafor creating pressure from the outside, Rankins should Womens Tony Gonzalez Jersey see more action from his natural position inside, a move he fully embraces.

Splish, splash, Browns coach Jackson takes a Lake Erie bath

Posted on by

Hue Jackson surfaced from the chilly water soaked and smiling before he raised both arms in triumph.

Cleveland’s coach hasn’t had many moments to celebrate during two miserable seasons with the Browns, so this felt like a victory over the dreaded Steelers.

A very wet, wonderful win.

Jackson took a dive into Lake Erie on Friday , delivering on a promise with a dip he hopes can help cleanse the bumbling Browns, who have gone 1-31 in two seasons with Jackson in charge.

With a TV news helicopter hovering over Huntington Beach, and an NFL Films crew recording his every move on land and sea, Jackson spent several minutes in the unusually warm 72-degree water.

After returning to shore, Jackson expressed relief to have it behind him.

This was a chance to wash off the filth from two painful, forgettable seasons.

They trust me to do that, Fitzpatrick said. They’re not putting too much on me, but they know they can put a lot on me.

Pro Bowler Reshad Jones is certain to start at one safety spot, and veteran safety T.J. McDonald also returns after starting the final eight games last season. Defensive coordinator Matt Burke may decide to play both along with Fitzpatrick at times, and June is a time for experimenting.

General manager Chris Grier has compared Fitzpatrick to a Swiss army knife because of his versatility. And wherever Fitzpatrick lines up, he’s making his presence felt.

He is flying around at practice, quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. He plays aggressive and plays fast, and that’s what you want to see out of a DB.

Fitzpatrick played for Nick Saban at Alabama, which may be why he hasn’t found the demands of the NFL too daunting so far. In fact, the coaching styles of Saban and Gase are similar, he said.

They’re both very passionate coaches, Fitzpatrick said. They’re both real hands-on. The only difference is coach Saban yells a bit more.

The Jaguars tripled down on Sacksonville with Bryan, Harrison and Jacobs.

Elite Kids Patrick Sharp Jersey In hindsight, D’Antoni wishes it had been a sign of things to come with the Suns.

Here’s what we do. We do it well, we win. We don’t, we lose. But they’re not stopping it. Nobody’s stopping it.

Chris Ballard got busy stockpiling talent for Frank Reich after a quiet free-agency period. Nelson and Smith will start and improve both pass protection and run blocking. Hines and Wilkins give the Colts a nice committee with Marlon Mack that can do a little but of everything. Fountain and Cain can emerge as big-play guys outside for Andrew Luck. At the same time, the Colts loaded up their new-look base 4-3 for Matt Eberflus. It was the transitional draft Indy needed.

Marty Hurney is back on the job with a solid draft. Moore is the spectacular pick, but the speedy Jackson and the nasty Gaudlen Cole Beasley”>”>Cole Beasley Jersey fit key needs in the secondary. Thomas is a good kid to groom as a receiver behind Greg Olsen. It was also good that the Panthers got some situational pass rush in Haynes.

The Falcons didn’t get an inside-outside pass-rusher or extra tight end help. But they did jump on a great offensive value in Ridley to support Julio Jones, and they got some good defensive depth for Dan Quinn. Solid also describes this NFC South team haul.

Raiders to Vegas Golden Knights: ‘Just Win Baby’

When the Vegas Golden Knights take the ice for Game 1 of their Stanley Cup Final against the Washington Capitals on Monday, they’ll have their soon-to-be professional sports brethren standing in their corner.

However, Dalton has won a grand total of zero playoff games, and in each of the past two years Cincinnati has missed the postseason. Those failings (and Dalton’s robust salary) have led many to question whether The Red Rifle should remain the Bengals’ starter.

In 2018 at least, Dalton’s the unquestioned No. 1. His success (or failure) in 2018 will depend largely on one thing. It isn’t the wide receiver corps, led by the annually awesome A.J. Green. Or the Womens Thaddeus Young Jersey ground game, keyed by second-year pro Joe Mixon.

It’s the revamped offensive line that will determine the day. Dalton is a different quarterback in a clean pocket as opposed to with guys in his face. If newcomers Cordy Glenn and Billy Price perform up to expectations, the Bengals will contend in the AFC North.

If they don’t and that line is a sieve again, it’s going to be a long year for Dalton and the Bengals.
Authentic Womens Martellus Bennett Jersey
At the opposite end of that spectrum, you have the winless Cleveland Browns, a team that’s been looking for a quarterback for two decades. The team hopes it has that quarterback in Baker Mayfield, but the first overall pick in this year’s draft more likely than not won’t be the Browns’ starter in Week 1.

With OTAs well underway and training camp set to kick off in mid-July, many fans are curious what to expect from their favorite team’s quarterback, whether it’s stars like Wentz, Brady and Drew Brees or newcomers like Mayfield and Josh Allen.

Stafford has piled up at least 4,200 passing yards and 20 touchdown passes in seven consecutive seasons. He’s topped 4,500 passing yards three times, 5,000 yards once and has three straight seasons with a passer rating of at least 93.3.

James Neal Mens Jersey Stafford’s career touchdown-to-interception ratio is plus-98.

Add in a pair of excellent pass-catchers at Stafford’s disposal in Golden Tate and Marvin Jones Jr. (and promising youngster Kenny Golladay), and you have the makings of one of the league’s more prolific passing attacks in 2018.

Peter King, MMQB leaving Sports Illustrated for NBC Sports, ‘Football Night in America’

Posted on by

Game Youth Jim Palmer Jersey Big sports media news continued to drop Thursday as Peter King, the dean of NFL sportswriters, jumped to NBC Sports from Sports Illustrated.

Mitchell Marner Elite Jersey Beginning in July, King will exclusively write his Monday Morning Quarterback column for He’ll appear on NBC’s Football Night Cole Beasley”>”>Cole Beasley Jersey in America Sunday night pregame show and NBC Sports Radio’s PFT Live with Mike Florio.

As one of the best NFL reporters in history, Peter’s information, storytelling, and analysis make us better across the board,Sam Flood, executive producer and president, production, for NBC Sports and NBCSN, said in a statement. With Peter expanding his NBC Sports presence from Football Night to PFT Live and digital, football fans are the big winners.

I just felt it was time to move on from the 24/7-ness of football coverage and try something a little bit different. My 29 years at Sports Illustrated have been, collectively, a dream come true. I’ll always be grateful to Mark Mulvoy for hiring a green 31-year-old kid in 1989, just as I’m grateful to my current boss, Chris Stone, for the opportunities and support he’s given me in recent years. For three decades, I’ve had the job of a lifetime in the sports media business, and I will be forever grateful to SI. I leave at the end of May with immense gratitude to my editors over the years and to my staff at The MMQB since 2013. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart.

The King announcement capped a busy day of sports media changes. ESPN announced it was hiring Jason Witten, who is retiring from the Cowboys, to succeed the departed Jon Gruden as color analyst for Monday Night Football. CBS Sports announced the hiring of ex-Cardinals coach Bruce Arians as an NFL game analyst. Arians will work with Greg Gumbel and Trent Green.

Witten was selected in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Cowboys. He never changed teams, as he spent all 15 years of his NFL career in Dallas.

It brings a certainty of pride and honor, the type of certainty that comes once in a lifetime, to be a Dallas Cowboy,Witten said at his press conference. Many times over the years I’d wake up and jump out of bed and catch myself saying ‘how lucky am I’ to be able to play the game of football for the Dallas Cowboys.

Witten caught 1,152 passes for 12,448 yards and 68 touchdowns in his career, making 11 Pro Bowls. He said at his press conference that he hopes he’s remembered as a role model, both on and off the field.

Three technical fouls called after Marcus Morris-Larry Nance Jr. scuffle

Posted on by

Tempers flared Wednesday night in the second quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers, resulting in three technical fouls being doled out.

With 10:47 remaining in the second quarter and the Celtics leading 36-19, Boston forward Marcus Morris broke up a lob pass from LeBron James to Larry Nance Jr., tipping the ball out of bounds and causing Nance to hurtle to the floor.

Morris already had established himself as an agitator earlier in the series, screaming in Cavs center Tristan Thompson’s face when they were both on the floor by the stanchion following a foul.

Assistant general manager Mark Hunter, who had been with the Maple Leafs’ managerial staff since October 2014, has mutually parted ways with the team. Hunter, 55, had previously been the owner, vice-president, and general manager of the London Knights in the OHL for 12 years.

“Following extensive discussions with Mark, he and the Toronto Maple Leafs have mutually agreed to part ways,” said Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan. “I’d like to sincerely thank Mark for everything he’s done for this organization over the last four years and I wish him nothing but the best in the future.”

News of Hunter’s exodus comes one day after it was reported that former general manager Lou Lamoriello was leaving his senior advisor role with the Leafs to take over hockey operations for the New York Islanders.ravens_082
