Possible trades could make draft night nutty

Posted on by

The recent trend of trades in the NFL has subsided for now, but it could continue. Specifically, it could continue on the first night of the draft.

Despite no clear consensus on how the top of the draft will or should unfold, specific teams eventually will finalize their boards, and presumably will have a short list of players they covet above all others. Some teams may decide to make a move up the board, with the ideal timing being when the pick they are acquiring is on the clock.

Then there are the two veteran players generating the most pre-draft trade buzz: Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. As to both players, the ideal timing to move them for picks would be to do so when the highest selection to be obtained is on the clock. This would require a deal to be done late in the process — or with complete and total secrecy. As to Beckham, that won’t be easy to accomplish, since he’ll want a new contract as part of the new location. Still, for both the Giants and the Patriots, waiting until the best pick they’d get is on the clock provides maximum value.

When it comes to acquiring draft picks, waiting until the pick is on the clock always provides maximum value. Which means that there could be a rash of trades in 23 days in Dallas, when the 2018 draft commences.

Mora said that former USC quarterback Sam Darnold is a better fit than Rosen for the Browns. Mora told Peter King of that Rosen “needs to be challenged intellectually so he doesn’t get bored,” that “[h]e’s a millennial,” that “[h]e wants to know why,” that “Josh has a lot of interests in life,” and that “[i]f you can hold his concentration level and focus only on football for a few years, he will set the world on fire.” Mora said on SiriusXM NFL Radio that “[i]f Josh manages his life off the football field and commits to being a great football player not just when he’s at the facility, but when he’s away from the facility, he is going to be amazingly successful.”

Mora appeared on Tuesday’s edition of The Dan Patrick Show to further elaborate on Rosen. This time around, Mora was far closer to being over-the-top in his praise. Mora also insisted that he’s been “really clear” and “really consistent” in his message about Rosen, and that his views should be regarded as “very, very complimentary” and “very, very positive.”

“Things can be misrepresented at times when people decide to edit it a certain way,” Mora said.

Mora went on to say that Rosen does indeed need to be challenged intellectually, but Mora said that’s not a bad thing. He compared Rosen to other cerebral quarterbacks like Peyton Manning, pointing out that former Colts receiver Marvin Harrison recently told Mora that Manning’s inquisitive nature routinely kept meetings going longer than they otherwise would have gone.la_kings_003

Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League undecided on remainder of season

Posted on by

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League has yet to decide if it will finish out its season, league president Bill Chow said on Monday.
Limited Womens Fran Tarkenton Jersey Adidas NHL Men's Roberto Luongo Red Home Premier Jersey - #1 Florida Panthers
The SJHL’s Board of Governors will hold a conference call on Wednesday to decide the immediate future of the league. The SJHL was in middle of its playoffs when one of the teams, the Humboldt Broncos, was involved in a fatal bus crash on Friday. Fifteen people — including the head coach, players and the bus driver — died, and 14 others were injured.

We definitely didn’t know the impact of PTSD and mental health and the effects of trauma, Kennedy said. Thirty-two years ago, we didn’t even talk about this. We know more today.

Sheldon reiterated that the effects of this tragedy will be far-reaching. He said that anyone affected should not expect to go to one or two therapy sessions and expect to be healed.

We know better [now] so we can do better, Kennedy said. We know the scars that last a lifetime are real. … We have to be able to have something sustainable for those people that is long term. That’s what we learned coming out of the ’86 crash.

The A’s had scored 16 runs in the two games at Anaheim to start the weekend, with the outburst coming after an opening-season homestand when they scored one run in a game twice and three runs in a game three times.

Then on Sunday, they didn’t get a base runner until one out in the seventh inning, although that might have been more about Othani’s excellence.

No, I think we have a great team, a great group of guys and phenomenal hitters, said the A’s Matt Joyce, who concluded the series against the Angels with a ninth-inning home run Sunday. One through nine, I think we can do what it takes to put runs on the board and give ourselves the chance to win.

Without middle-of-the-order threat Justin Turner (wrist fracture), the Dodgers’ offense has gotten off to a slow start that has looked nothing like their dynamic offense of 2017.

Elite Richard Sherman Jersey The Dodgers failed to score a run in their first two games, then lost all three at Arizona last week, scoring one run in the Brooks Orpik Authentic Jersey final 18 innings of that series. They scored seven runs in two days this past weekend while splitting a rain-shortened series at San Francisco.

We’ve just got to find ways to get those big hits, Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

There are some real limitations on what analytics can forecast: It can’t predict the future, and it can’t see inside the mind of a player. This is where the manager’s role is most difficult, his insights most valuable and his personal connection to the players most instructive.

Joseph responded by firing six assistant coaches, including offensive coordinator Mike Anthony Davis Jersey McCoy. The revamped coaching staff should benefit from having Case Keenum at quarterback and the talent of the incoming fifth overall pick.聽

The Rutgers trio of Joseph, Miller and Bolin are being trained at the prestigious TEST Football Academy in Martinsville. In the past, TEST conducted pre-draft training for Joe Flacco, Patrick Peterson, Demario Davis, Damon Harrison and Jevon Kearse, among others.

For Belichick, since the season’s end, sources say he has expressed frustration with those close to him about Gronkowski, specifically questioning whether he remains all-in, a critical aspect of Belichick’s blueprint for success.

there’s little reason to think that Alex Smith won’t do the same in 2018 for the Washington Redskins.

Posted on by

Smith, long known as the king of the game managers, was the NFL’s best deep-ball passer in the league in 2017, according to’s Matt Harmon. After the Chiefs traded him to Washington and he signed an extension with $71 million in guarantees, he’s willing to do whatever his new team asks, per Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins’ website.
Thomas Morstead Black Name & Number Logo : NFL Nike New Orleans Saints #6 Pullover Hoodie
Mahomes looked good in his lone start last year against the Denver Broncos, but drawing grand conclusions from one Week 17 start is a fool’s errand. And given the team’s defensive deficiencies, Kansas City will be counting on the young quarterback to win more than a few shootouts.

Elite Kids Tom Waddle Jersey If the Chiefs start slow and fall behind in the AFC West, it won’t take long for fans to start grumbling about whether the team jumped the gun in making a switch under center.

No, it’s not mechanic, Jansen said. He just got me. Who cares Who cares It’s one game.

About anything. He was a robot spewing out team talking points. He never seemed like a real person that season. (Sanchez is actually a terrific guy, as I learned years later.) The Jets created a slightly more relaxed atmosphere during Geno Smith’s 2013 rookie campaign even though a team employee would routinely eavesdrop on one-on-one conversations between the rookie quarterback and a media member. It was a counterproductive approach that once again created unnecessary angst for both sides. (Smith later revealed himself to be a delusional child.)
Desmond Trufant Elite Jersey
Perhaps new Jets leadership will treat Mayfield (or anyone else they draft to be their franchise quarterback with the No. 3 pick) like an adult capable of Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey making his own decisions and holding private conversations with other adults who want to better understand him. Shielding the rookie from human interaction would not be smart. Besides, Mayfield, who will turn 22 this month, doesn’t strike me as someone who requires babysitting. Regardless, there’s no reason to think that Mayfield can’t deal with the big, bad New York media.

His success on the field will matter most anyway. Oh sure, I’m sure he’ll M-F me from time to time, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. Disagree with something I said or wrote Please, for the love of Jesus, tell me to my face.

Mikolas homers, wins in majors return as Cards beat Brewers

Posted on by

Miles Mikolas won in his first big league game after a three-year stint in Japan, but left his biggest impression at the plate.

Hitting a home run to help spoil the Milwaukee Brewers’ home opener sure was special for the St. Louis Cardinals right-hander.

Paul DeJong connected for the second straight game, hitting his third homer this season, and Mikolas collected his first big league hit with a two-run homer in the Cardinals’ 8-4 win on Monday.

He’ll savor his fifth-inning drive off Zach Davies (0-1) that broke a 2-all tie for a while.

I might remember the home run just because that was a highlight of the day, Mikolas said. But looking back I’ll probably look at the mistakes I made as a pitcher … and make myself better moving forward.

Cardinals 3B Jedd Gyorko left before the bottom of the seventh with a strained right hamstring. … RHP Adam Wainwright (left hamstring strain) shagged fly balls and grounders during batting practice. Wainwright went on the disabled list on March 26 and is eligible to come off Thursday, which is the Cardinals’ home opener against Arizona. Asked how he felt, Wainwright said with a smile, That’s what everybody wants to know. It’s a secret.

Manager Mike Matheny didn’t rule out starting Wainwright for the home opener. We didn’t take anything off the table, Matheny said. Just kind of take all the information in. Just see what happens.

McCallum moved to Nevada shortly after his injury and now lives with his wife, Yvonne, and their four daughters in Henderson, a Las Vegas suburb. He loves the city. Everyone’s looking to be friends, he said. He also loves the Raiders, and, for years, envisioned bringing his new home and his former team together, but kept running into the same line of resistance.

Anytime I’d mention it to someone, the first thing they’d say was, ‘But the gaming, the gaming,’ McCallum recalled from his office at The Venetian during a February interview with ESPN. They were worried about the integrity of the game.

On its face, sports betting’s threat to the integrity of the game is match-fixing — a player, coach or official purposely trying to impact an outcome inside the competition for gambling purposes. That’s only one part of the NFL’s concern, however.patriots_323

Richie Incognito Agrees To $2.675M Pay Cut To Be Back With Bills

Based on what he wrote, that won’t ever be changing. But he did note that the unpleasant reaction by some Seahawks fans in the aftermath of his deal with the 49ers has made me more aware of the hate and hypocrisy that’s out there. The contract wasn’t just controversial because Sherman agreed to sign with the Seahawks’ rival. It was also controversial due to the exact details of the contract. Some, including future Hall of Fame left tackle Joe Thomas, called it a bad contract negotiated by a first-time player-agent.

Sherman provided a counter argument in his story. According to Sherman, he’ll be compensated accordingly if he returns to his Pro Bowl form. If he doesn’t, the 49ers won’t be stuck paying for somebody who’s not on the field and who’s not playing at a high level.
Anthony Brown Jersey
Well, some network executives appear to think differently.

On Tuesday, Richard Deitsch of The Athletic reported that two and a half months after being fired by the Bears, Fox will join ESPN as a studio analyst. As Deitsch points out, the network has a studio vacancy after the departure of Herm Edwards and could create another opening if it promotes Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss, or Louis Riddick to the Monday Night Football broadcast booth. ESPN might consider Fox a natural replacement for Edwards given that both offer a coach’s perspective amid a lineup of mostly former players.

Former USC quarterback Sam Darnold threw 846 live-action passes over the last two years with the Trojans, but the most important passes thus far in his football life will be thrown on Wednesday.

Fair or not, it’s certainly odd. Darnold will be wearing shorts and a t-shirt and won’t be dealing with a hostile defense, Delvin Breaux Authentic Jersey but because the highly-touted 20-year-old didn’t participate in passing drills at the NFL Scouting Combine, this will likely be his best chance to prove he’s worthy of being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Scott Quessenberry draws inspiration from his older brother, David

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.

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.

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.

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.
