James Harrison Jersey: No hard feelings toward Steelers

Just before the Steelers released linebacker James Harrison late last season, Harrison said he wouldn’t have returned to the team if he knew he’d be relegated to a deep reserve role and teammates said after his release that Harrison acted like a player who wanted the team to cut him.

Is prime time ready for the Jaguars again?

The Jags are back. But will they be back in prime time?

The 2017 final-four franchise will receive plenty of preseason hype as the 2018 season approaches. The real question is whether they’ll be playing many/any of their games under the lights, at home or on the road.

They’re fighting. They’re battling. It’s a tough game. Obviously, things haven’t gone our way. Guys in the clubhouse are keeping their heads up and staying positive in their daily work. That’s all you can really ask for. In times like this, you just kind of ride the storm.

Realmuto went 3-for-3 with a homer, a double and three runs scored in a rehab game with Class A Jupiter. To make room for him on the roster, the Marlins optioned catcher Chad Wallach to Triple-A New Orleans.

Gisele Bündchen may have countless fashion credits to her name, but none of that matters where style is concerned in the Brady household.

“You should see our closets, it’s so funny,” the 37-year-old supermodel said of husband Tom Brady to WSJ. Magazine. “I would say that he likes fashion more than I like fashion. I would say he’s changed his haircut in one year more than I’ve changed in my whole life.”

Married for nearly a decade, the self-described “jeans and a T-shirt girl” remains her well-dressed husband’s No. 1 fan, as he embarks on his 19th season with the Patriots, following New England’s 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last month in Super Bowl LII. Should Brady, 40, decide to walk away from the game in the coming years, it will be his choice, first and foremost.

“These two cats are capable of that kind of stuff, too, they are just a rare breed.’’

A rare breed in the same pinstriped lineup. Look out, legends.

With Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge set to make their debut as teammates, here’s Dan Martin’s look at some other standout duos in sports history.

The once-again Raiders head coach spoke bullishly on the free agent’s chances, saying the quarterback who has filed a grievance against the league “probably” will be on a team soon — despite the entire league passing on Kaepernick last season.

By the next season, Kaepernick was out of the league, and he would later file his case alleging the league colluded to keep him out.

Kaepernick is still trying to find a job, though he hasn’t received any sniffs from teams.

As for the other quarterbacks who intrigue Gruden: Tebow is a minor league baseball player, Griffin has been a shell of himself since knee surgery following his 2012 season and Manziel, trying to make a comeback, bombed out of the league in 2015 and has brought distractions that are more criminal than activist.jets_120

Robert Griffin III Jersey said year off made him ‘smarter’ with playbook

Robert Griffin III said not being on an NFL team for a year made him a smarter player.
Game Jonathon Simmons Jersey Nike Women's Shaq Lawson Elite Red Jersey - Buffalo Bills NFL #90 Rush Vapor Untouchable
Game Patrick Roy Jersey The new Ravens quarterback said his time off allowed him to study the playbook, analyze games and research aspects of each team’s offense and defense so he could improve himself.

Griffin, 28, was selected No. 2 overall in the 2012 draft by the Redskins. He was extremely successful his first season and made it to the Pro Bowl after throwing 20 touchdowns. However, he failed to remain healthy and consistent and was eventually replaced by Kirk Cousins.

Being 100 percent honest, I haven’t felt this good since I came out of college, Griffin said. A year off of football can do that when trucks aren’t landing on you every play.

Donald is set to enter the final year of his deal, and he is scheduled to earn a base salary of just under $7 million, per Spotrac.

The 26-year-old is a four-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro first-team selection who is coming off a 2017 season that saw him win NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Donald registered 41 tackles, 11.0 sacks and five forced fumbles en route to winning the award.

The Pittsburgh alum sat out聽voluntary workouts, mandatory minicamp and training camp last season before returning to the Rams at the start of the 2017 campaign.

According to Klein, Donald is believed to be seeking more than $20 million per season.

It didn’t take long for me to show Matt why we should do what we did. To have an outside edge rusher that can be as dominant as Ziggy was something that was really appealing to Matt because Matt has had a lot of great players in New England and I think Paul Martin Jersey Ziggy would rank right up there with some of the best players that Matt has ever coached.

Jon Gruden Jersey reportedly disliked Marquette King’s personality, not his punting

Limited Kids Donnel Pumphrey Jersey
The Raiders cut punter Marquette King last week, and that came as a surprise. King is a solid punter who had a career-best 42.7-yard net average last season, and he still had three years left on his contract.

Potter told Outside the Lines that rather than immediately call 911 for help, Merilien waited at least 30 minutes to call police.

Looking at Tampa Bay’s roster, we’ve got a lot of young talent, Jensen said. We just signed Mike Evans back and everything like that, so I just felt Tampa, the way things are going there, that it’s going to be kind of a win-now type of a situation. And I thrive in that kind of situation.

Jensen also mentioned the style of offense in Tampa as part of the reason he chose them over the Colts and the whole package was likely made more appealing to the former Raven when the Bucs offered him a four-year, $42 million contract. That deal will look like a very good one should Jensen’s presence help push the Bucs to the spot in the standings many thought they’d reach last year.

About every two days, they were doing blood and urine testing, and the charges were anywhere from $4,000 to $6,000 a test, Lisa Daniels says.

The Colts dropping to No. 6 in their trade with the Jets shows that, even with their cloudy backfield situation 鈥?second-year players Marlon Mack and Josh Ferguson are their current top post-Frank Gore options 鈥?they didn’t think Barkley was worth the pick at No. 3 as opposed to the bounty of three extra second-rounders over two drafts.

The beauty of the move is that Indianapolis can still get the elite pass-rusher it needs in N.C. State’s Bradley Chubb. Should Barkley still be available for the Colts at No. 6, it would make the decision a lot harder. But the domino effect Alex Mack Jersey of the trade likely sets up Barkley to come off the board before No. 6.

He has a really good instinct for maybe gaining the 5 or 6 yards and then going down before he takes the shot, O’Brien said, via ESPN.com. That’s a big thing that young quarterbacks usually have a problem with. He seems to have an instinct for being able to stay out of harm’s way.

Patriots sign tight end Troy Niklas Jersey

The Patriots have resumed their annual collection of the tight ends.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Patriots have signed former Cardinals second-rounder Troy Niklas to a one-year deal.

Harbaugh never explains why the changing table isn’t in Bryan Rust Jersey the baby’s room. Then again, the point wouldn’t have been as potent if steep stairs and saggy sweat pants weren’t involved.

We felt like there was something about the white helmet that didn’t quite make the new uniform design as tough and as clean and as stark as we thought it needed to be, NFL creative director Shandon Melvin said. And so we thought, well, let’s experiment with that and see what we could come up with.

While there are some differences, the change was more subtle than the overhaul some teams have tried. That direction came from owner Amy Strunk Adams, who wanted to maintain the Columbia blue (aka light blue) highlights as a nod to the team’s heritage as the Houston Oilers.

Authentic Youth Frank Zombo Jersey Clowney’s contract status, though, could have an impact on the Watt decision. Clowney is entering his option year and could be in Von Miller’s $19 million-per-year neighborhood or more starting in 2019. The Texans are fortunate to have their franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson under a relatively low contract for the next three years, so they likely can afford to pay both Watt and Clowney big bucks, but probably not Mercilus.

Will they want to go that route despite Watt’s recent injury history?

The Patriots generally buy them by the bushel, and Niklas gives them another option behind Rob Gronkowski and Dwayne Allen.

The 25-year-old Niklas is a valuable blocker when he’s well, but he’s battled injuries throughout his career. He had a career-high 11 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown last year for the Cardinals.

Chiefs add backup quarterback Matt McGloin

For the second time this month, the Chiefs have brought in a backup quarterback for Patrick Mahomes.

Matt McGloin signed with the Chiefs today, the team announced. McGloin joins the newly signed Chad Henne as backups behind Mahomes, last year’s first-round draft pick who will be the starter this year.

Hours after Smith signs with Raiders, the Santa Clara Country district attorney files three misdemeanor charges — DUI, hit and run with property damage and vandalism — related to his arrest in August. Smith’s arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 6.

Nine games into the 2015 NFL season, Smith is suspended for one year by the NFL for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. The Raiders say Smith “remains prominently in our long term plans and we will continue to support this member of our family as he gets the help that he needs.”

The trial had been set to commence during the team’s training camp. It’s unclear whether the dismissal of the felony charge will change that.

Anderson still faces multiple misdemeanor charges arising from the January incident.

This season’s rookie class is chock-full of fantasy promise, but who are the best long-term bets among the likes of Lonzo Ball, Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell? What about Markelle Fultz and Jayson Tatum?

The 2017-18 season isn’t even in the books, and our experts are already scouting ahead. Which players are likely to fly under the radar heading into the 2018-19 season?

The optimal DFS lineup for last night’s slate included Tyler Ennis and Josh Hart of the Los Angeles Lakers and Danuel House Jr. and Dragan Bender of the Phoenix Suns. We even saw OG Anunoby excel on Sunday. I’ve espoused this approach before, but it bears repeating for these frenzied final days — fantasy managers in season-long leagues can glean actionable information from DFS results and analysis.

MarShon Brooks Jersey scores 25 points, Grizzlies beat Pistons

In the home finale, the Memphis Grizzlies sent their fans home happy with a rare victory in a disappointing season.

MarShon Brooks scored 25 points, Dillon Brooks added 22 and the Grizzlies snapped a four-game losing streak with a 130-117 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.

Of the Grizzlies’ 22 wins this season, 16 were at home, a far cry from the last seven years when the final home game was just a stopping point before the playoffs.

I understand how tough it’s been for everyone, said center Marc Gasol, who applauded fans as he left the floor in the closing minutes, finishing with 20 points, nine rebounds and nine assists. For them to still show support through the bad and the worse and how bad it really got, to me it means a lot.
Limited Youth Zach Parise Jersey
We weren’t very locked in defensively, Kennard said, adding: We weren’t engaged defensively from the start.

Interim Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff said the victory was a reward for everyone involved as a season — among the worst since the franchise moved to Memphis in 2001.
Zach Cunningham Womens Jersey
The guys are deserving, but our fans are deserving too, Bickerstaff said. I think our guys understood that from the beginning of the game. Through the ups and downs, the fans have stuck with us, and they deserve the performance Authentic Brad Boxberger Jersey our guys put on (Sunday).

Pistons: F Blake Griffin missed his sixth straight game with a right ankle bone bruise. … Andre Drummond posted his 10th straight double-double with 12 points and 18 rebounds. … Ellenson’s previous career high was 15 points on April 7, 2017, at Houston.

Now the question remaining is how far can Utah rise?

The Jazz still have plenty at stake when they host Golden State on Tuesday night. Not only can Utah claim the season series with the Warriors with another victory, they can keep hopes for claiming the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference alive. Portland currently leads the Jazz by a game in the race for that seed and the two division rivals face off on Wednesday.

In a real sense, every game still counts for Utah. And the Jazz don’t want to coast into the postseason.

We want to stay right where we are at, if not, keep going higher, Donovan Mitchell told reporters on Thursday. We want to keep working and keep doing what we’ve been doing. If we keep playing like this we’ll be in good shape.

Michel and LeGarrette Blount Jersey would be a potent tandem.

Caught up in the LeBron-driven Cleveland Pride movement of the day, the Browns unveiled altered uniforms that made it alarmingly clear they play in the major metropolis located off Lake Erie. Unfortunately, the Brownies have gone 1-31 in this getup, including last season’s historic 0-16 campaign. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised the franchise is already plotting another makeover as soon as it’s allowed.

As detailed above, the Bucs’ first uniform update was a smashing success. Who could blame them for giving it another try once the new-car smell of the ’90s reboot wore off? Unfortunately for Tampa Bay, there has been no Bucs Effect for the Bucs the second time around. They went 2-14 in the first season after the debut of the alarm clock uniform. Overall, the Bucs are 22-42 since the change. They were fun on Hard Knocks, at least.

Ryan Tannehill’s problematic knee casts further doubt on a career that seemed to be maxing out at adequate before he initially went down in 2016. Jackson has significantly more upside, and Adam Gase, who’s worked with all flavors of quarterback, could be the guy to maximize his highly intriguing potential. It makes sense to trade back into the first round in order to get the prized fifth-year contract option, especially with a quarterback. Meanwhile, Jacksonville could ask for an additional third rounder while taking Miami’s Round 2 selection (42nd overall).

Drew Brees Jersey alleges jeweler defrauded him out of $9 million

A California jeweler scammed Drew Brees and his wife out of $9 million by having them overpay for diamonds during a seven-year period, the couple alleged in a lawsuit filed Monday.
Men's Majestic Washington Nationals #34 Bryce Harper Replica Red Alternate 1 Cool Base MLB Jersey
The lawsuit accuses Vahid Moradi, of CJ Charles Jewelers in San Diego, of fraud and breach of contract.

Moradi confessed he charged plaintiffs a substantial markup. Moradi insisted unabashedly that he had done nothing wrong because he charged the plaintiffs the price at which Moradi expected the jewelry could be resold in ten to fifteen years because Moradi knew plaintiffs wanted a ‘long-term investment,’ the lawsuit reads.

In addition to lying and defrauding plaintiffs, Moradi has refused to refund them money Moradi acknowledges he owes plaintiffs, the lawsuit continues.

The Brees’ relationship with Moradi began when Drew Brees wanted to buy watches that could increase in value over time.

That professional relationship blossomed into a personal one, court documents say, and Moradi became involved with the couple’s charitable foundation.

The couple eventually severed ties with Moradi, who they also accuse of refusing to return to them $244,000 they wired to him for a watch they ultimately decided to not buy. Moradi allegedly said he would convert that money into store credit instead.

J.A. Happ Youth Jersey The lawsuit, filed in San Diego, seeks to recover at least $9 million in damages as well as a refund for the $244,000.

Of course you have to get ready to replace him, Colbert recently told NBC Sports. We’ve tried to add young quarterbacks into the mix. We’ve done it with Landry Jones, we’ve done it with Josh Dobbs. We’ve tried to do that just to keep some young guys in the system. But at some point, you may draft a quarterback higher. But as long as you have Ben Roethlisberger playing for you, you’re hopefully not in a position where you’re going to get Ben that high. The year we got Ben we were coming off a Dion Lewis Authentic Jersey losing season. And that was very unfortunate 鈥?the losing season 鈥?but we were very fortunate to get him.

Rudolph, projected as a second or third round pick in this year’s draft, was recently asked by NFL.com which coach he would love to play for at the next level.

I talked to Coach Tomlin at my Pro Day, Rudolph said. What a great guy and what an example of a player’s coach. A guy thats just, you feel like he’s so in tune with his players. Just a fun guy. He knows when it’s obviously time to go to work, but he can have a good time and small talk as well.

Giants GM ‘livid’ about Odell Beckham Jr. trade rumors

Ever since New York Giants co-owner John Mara threw down the gauntlet on wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Sunday, there’s been a whirlwind of speculation about potential trade destinations for the talented, but sometimes difficult player.

On Monday, Jarvis Landry was on social media recruiting OBJ to Cleveland, and a report emerged that the Los Angeles Rams were working on a potential trade to bring him to Southern California.

The Browns telegraph their desire to other teams in the hopes of creating a market for the pick, and they’re able to convince the Giants that another team — maybe the Jets Broncos Bills — will come up for Darnold if the Giants don’t. If that works, the Giants could slide up into the first overall spot to make sure they get the guy they believe is the long-term successor to Eli Manning. Farfetched Maybe. But not impossible. Last year, the Bears gave the 49ers two third-round picks and a fourth-round pick to move up from No. 3 to No. 2, which gives you some idea what it might cost. And hmmmm … didn’t the Giants just pick up a third-round pick from Tampa Bay in the Jason Pierre-Paul trade

The NFL gave a positive progress report on the sale of the Carolina Panthers at the owners meeting on Monday and confirmed the goal is to present a name for vote at the May 21-23 meetings in Atlanta.

Three-fourths of the league’s 32 owners have to approve whatever candidate Panthers owner Jerry Richardson selects from the bidding process that began earlier this month.

McCarthy said he understood the natural evolution of technology for football operations, but rued the possible loss of competitive edge.

If this makes coaches and players not use their ability to communicate off of pictures, he said, I’m not for it.

McCarthy was speaking a few hours before the issue was introduced for discussion last Tuesday morning. Unprompted, and to his dismay, McCarthy said he thought it would pass. The competition committee had attempted a compromise by limiting the number of video-enabled tablets to five on the sideline and two in the coaches’ booth, and there was an unspoken understanding that the NFL’s $400 million sponsorship with Microsoft was in play as well. Under the proposal, All-22 video would be loaded instantaneously into a dedicated app and tracked so that users could find an individual play without having to manually toggle.patriots_084
