John Dorsey says Browns had Denzel Ward, Bradley Chubb Jersey graded equally

The Browns controversially selected Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward with the No. 4 overall pick in last week’s NFL Draft, passing on N.C. State pass rusher Bradley Chubb. But general manager John Dorsey said the team had the two players graded equally.

Speaking on 92.3 The Fan, Dorsey claimed the Browns were in need of another press corner more than an edge rusher. He also said defensive coordinator Greg Williams was in favor of Ward.

The Browns selected Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick instead of Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, largely considered the best player in the Draft.

While Cleveland seemed pleased with their Draft-day haul, Barkley and Chubb appeared to be the better values with their two top-4 picks.

Perez was a minicamp invite of the team after not initially finding a job as an undrafted free agent.

Perez was the Division II Harlon Hill Trophy winner, leading Texas A&M-Commerce to the Division II championship.

He did not play high school football, quitting after coaches moved him to receiver. Instead, Perez bowled competitively.

Perez walked on at a JUCO Womens T.J. Ward Jersey as a quarterback and ended up winning a national title there.

Getting back to playing ball — that’s what it comes down to, Manziel said in a video tweeted by Barstool Sports. It’s something that I miss doing…. Big day for me. I’m no longer unemployed, getting back to what I love to do, and I’m happy about it.

Curry comes alive to score 35, Warriors rout Rockets by 41

Stephen Curry shook, shimmied and screamed, letting his adoring fans and the Rockets know that Oracle Arena was his house.

Once the two-time MVP got his groove back, Houston was helpless.

The 41-point victory was the largest in franchise history during the postseason, topping a 39-point win — 85-46 — by the Philadelphia Warriors against the St. Louis Bombers on April 6, 1948.

Kevin Durant added 25 points, six rebounds and six assists, while Draymond Green grabbed 17 rebounds to go with 10 points and six assists. The Warriors won an NBA-record 16th consecutive home postseason game, surpassing the Chicago Bulls’ mark of 15 in a row from April 27, 1990-May 21, 1991.

“Now that I have a full offseason, I’m out here trying to get a lot of balls. There’s a lot of motivation going into this season, not just to prove to everyone else, but to prove to myself. I know I’m capable of playing in this league, so I just have to go out every day and compete.”

Williams, currently slated as the team’s No. 3 receiver behind Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams, received some praise from his head coach.

“The first rule of getting better is showing up,” Brown said Wednesday after the team’s OTA, via ESPN. “You can’t make anything better without showing up. I think if he shows up, make everyone understand where he wants to be — he wants to be here not just for this year but years to come, come out here and show up. Show up and get better and show guys you’re serious.”

Chris Simms Jersey makes a belated confession

Justin Houston Limited Jersey Monday’s PFT Live focused on the challenges facing the Eagles, as they try to parlay their first-ever Super Bowl championship into a second one. Looming over the effort is the question of whether Carson Wentz or Nick Foles will be the starting quarterback.
Reebok NHL Youth Jeff Skinner White Away Authentic Jersey - #53 Carolina Hurricanes
While not a full-blown controversy (yet), things could get awkward for the Eagles. And the Giants went through this 27 years ago, when Phil Simms was the incumbent Sergei Boikov Jersey and Jeff Hostetler had just led the team to a win in Super Bowl XXV.

What should have been a simple parking ticket turned into an attempt at police intimidation, followed by unlawful use of physical force, including being handcuffed and tased and then unlawfully booked, Brown said. This experience with the Milwaukee Police Department has forced me to stand up and tell my story so that I can help prevent these injustices from happening in the future.

Steve Grogan Game Jersey The video begins with a single officer approaching Brown, whose late-model Mercedes appears to be parked vertically across three lanes.

You don’t see the issue here? You’re not parked across three lanes? the officer asks Brown as the Bucks guard casually approaches.

It’s a convenient excuse, and probably an overstated one. Roughly 10 Colts took a knee during the anthem two days after President Trump’s notorious get that son of a bitch of the field rant regarding protests during the anthem. Two weeks later, when Vice President Mike Pence stormed out of a 49ers-Colts game, only 49ers players were taking a knee.

But while the Colts lost roughly 3,000 2017 season-ticket holders, they added 1,330 new season-ticket holders 鈥?more than twice the amount than the Colts sold last year.

So the net (again, my math is questionable) is a drop of 1,670. Which isn’t bad for a 4-12 team that either recklessly or deliberately lied to the fan base throughout the 2017 offseason regarding whether quarterback Andrew Luck would be ready to go as of Week One or, you know, Week 17.

Given the 12 losses and the more-than-12 lies, a drop of only 1,670 season tickets should be regarded a cause for celebration. Instead, it’s an occasion to once again boil down the anthem issue to a bad-for-business dynamic.

Report: Terrelle Pryor Jersey dealing with another ankle injury

Among the players taking part in the first OTA of the Jets offseason is wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, who missed all of last season with a neck injury.

Enunwa isn’t wearing a helmet, so he’s still limited but being on the field is a step up from what Terrelle Pryor is up to on Tuesday. Pryor, who signed with the Jets in March, is not taking part in practice and Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the wideout is recovering from an ankle injury.

He’s put in extra effort during his between-starts bullpen sessions, hoping to straighten out any kinks in his delivery.

Usually by now I would have shaved my beard or got a haircut, or something, Fulmer said. But I can’t really be frustrated because I feel like my stuff is still there. I know it is. The ball is moving the way I want it to. I’m just not commanding the ball in the zone the way I want to.

I know I can do it. It’s just a matter of time. It only takes one good outing.

Worrilow signed a one-year contract with the Eagles this offseason. Worrilow spent last season with the Lions, making eight starts in 13 appearances and finishing the year with 20 tackles. He spent the first four years of his career with the Falcons.

Joe Walker, Corey Nelson, Kamu Grugier-Hill, Nathan Gerry and LaRoy Reynolds are others looking for depth spots in the Eagles linebacking corps this offseason.

The first-year Yankees manager had been asked if the team could have played any better through its first quarter of the season following a 6-2 win over the A’s at Yankee Stadium on Sunday.

Look, he said. I’m really excited with where we’re at. But it’s a long, long way to go.

There’s room for improvement for myself and some other guys as well, Gardner said. So we’ve just got to keep working, continue to get better.

The Yankees started the season 9-9. That wasn’t great, particularly considering the World Series expectations that landed on them follow last year’s run to Game 7 of the American League Championship Series and the arrival of Stanton, the 2017 National League MVP.

My reaction when I saw it was, ‘Oh my God, this could have happened to me,’ Banner said. This could have happened to almost anybody.

Patricia has vehemently denied any wrongdoing in the 22-year-old case, saying Thursday, I was innocent then and I am innocent now.

He and a friend were charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault during a spring break trip to South Padre Island, Texas. The two were indicted by a grand jury in August of 1996, and the case was dismissed in January of 1997 when the accuser declined to testify.

While the facts of the case remain unclear 鈥?Patricia wouldn’t provide details of the night in question on Thursday, and attempts by the Detroit Free Press to reach the woman involved have been unsuccessful 鈥?the Lions have found themselves in a Jaelen Strong Youth jersey minefield made more dangerous by a vetting process apparently hamstrung by state law.

Assuming Floyd stays healthy, three’s a charm for his impact on the second level of the defense. The Bears signed Aaron Lynch, but they drafted the Georgia product with an idea he’ll develop into a solid pass-rusher. It’s time for potential to turn into production.

Giants’ Saquon Barkley: ‘I’m more than a running back’

If they don’t, well, that should — must?

Lauletta shouldn’t expect to see the field anytime soon, but the idea that the Giants are rock solid at quarterback for many years, as head coach Pat Shurmur said, is wishful thinking.

Not that Lauletta, or anyone, is thinking that far ahead. He was handed a playbook for the first time on Friday, and Shurmur made it clear he planned on taking it slowly with the rookies.

On Friday, Pedrique was like the mayor of Yankee Stadium. More than a dozen Yankees embraced him. Hitting coach P.J. Pilliettre, who coached with Pedrique for five seasons, took a picture with him.

It’s always fun to see those kids, Pedrique said. They play so hard. They work so hard. They all deserve to be up here. And P.J., what he does is amazing — a great guy, a true professional. He does a great job.(Infield coordinator) Carlos Mendoza), he does a great job.

Many deny that their actions have anything to do with a coming presidential run, but they unmistakably play off the chords of campaigns past, seeking a way to break through a political maw that has been focused more on the latest actions of the president and the coming midterm elections.

I don’t want to speak to Democrats only, says Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who recently appeared on ABC’sJimmy Kimmel Live to riff on the Founding Fathers’ vision of patriotism and love.

I’m talking to us as Americans, about how this is a moral moment.

In front of policy conferences and campaign rallies for congressional candidates, former vice president Joe Biden has been updating his own paeans to the middle class, repeating his thematic refrain thatAmerica is all about possibilities. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has broadened her calls for people tofight back, and Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) has demanded thatwe must speak truth.colts_015

Giants co-owner confident this Odell Beckham Jersey deal will get done

Giants co-owner John Mara reiterated his stance on star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday night 鈥?he wants Beckham to be a Giant for a long time.

The last time Mara faced microphones and tape recorders, in March at the owners’ meetings, he was being peppered with questions about whether the Giants wanted to trade Beckham. Six weeks later, Beckham is still a Giant, and Mara wants to keep it that way.

Asked if Patricia did anything wrong in the incident, Wilson said, I’m not saying anything. I’m tired of talking to people. So just I’ll talk to Matt and then you probably need to make contact with the Detroit Lions from now on.

Dietrich did not respond to a message left on his cell phone, and a woman answering the phone at his home said he was not available before hanging up on a reporter.

Dietrich’s attorney in the case was Sheldon Weisfield. Reached by phone late Wednesday, he would only say:

I don’t remember the case and you can’t refresh my recollection. That was 20 years ago, Weisfield said, noting he handles many criminal cases. They all run together. I don’t recollect that case.

It’s one of the arguments some will make on how to fix this problem: Simply ban cheerleading in the NFL.聽But that’s not a solution. That’s just punishing the cheerleaders for the horrible behavior of men.

Here’s one solution that would go a long way to making their lives better: unionize.

It would help modernize the cheerleader workplace, and establish a basic and fair pay scale. They could call it the National Football League Cheerleaders Association (you’re welcome).

Cheerleaders currently are at the mercy of individual teams. There’s no league policy on how they’re paid. This is the biggest problem. Union protection would help curb some of these issues.

Saints paid an unusually big price to draft Marcus Davenport Jersey

When the Saints were on the clock after the surprising decision to trade away next year’s first-round draft pick to move up in this year’s first round, there was widespread speculation that they must be planning to draft a quarterback. Because typically, that’s the only position that teams will give up two first-round draft picks to get.

The defending champs have petered into the playoffs, having lost 10 of their past 17 games. The team has struggled without its leader, Stephen Curry, who will be sidelined for the opening round with an MCL injury. Can the team play at a high level without Steph? Can the Warriors turn it on during the playoffs? Is Steve Kerr’s voice still effective? Those are some of the questions facing the Warriors as they enter the postseason looking vulnerable.

Kevin Durant. Golden State was 40-10 with Curry in the lineup and an underwhelming 17-14 when he was in street clothes. Durant, along with the rest of the team, has not been able to adjust to Curry’s departure in part because the Warriors are mostly running the same system in which the two-time MVP flourished. Will Kerr alter the offense and cater it toward Durant?

After being traded from Dallas to Oakland following the Austin acquisition, Switzer spoke to Patrik Walker of 247Sports about his role with the Cowboys .

The more I think on it, I think that they had a different plan for me than what I was capable of doing, Switzer said. I don’t know. Looking back I had two or three rushes in the NFL before receptions and I was taking reps at running back at times. I don’t know if [they] were trying to use me as like a scat-back or what. There was a lot of talk about my high school days and being a RB and I don’t think I ever fit that mold as a change-of-pace back or someone with slide sweeps and carries.

I don’t know if that’s the plan they had for me [because] it was never spoken, but when I try to piece these things together — that’s kind of what I’m thinking. … I think that had a little bit to do with it because I can’t really think of anything else. … I did, like coach [Jason] Garrett [told] me, I did everything [asked of me] and more. I felt like that, too. I’m not really sure. That’s about as good of a guess as I have.

It’s very much a dangerous sport, but it’s also so much more than a sport to me. … Sports are such a unifying experience and thing that we can get behind, and so I do struggle with that sometimes, but I also think, Well, these guys are going to play football, so they need someone who cares about them as people, and who takes their welfare very seriously. That’s the approach that I take, but I could understand how people would see it differently.

We’ve talked about their injury history, especially before the combine medical stuff. It’s such a big part of it, but being totally honest right now, I’m just trying to get them on the team. As soon as they suit back up, that is something that is so important to me. My dad was diagnosed with CTE when he passed, and I suspect a lot of his teammates are probably living with it right now. We’ll find out maybe when they pass if they had it too.

Watson caught 286 passes for 3,777 yards and 33 touchdowns in his career. He is Penn鈥檚 all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and all-purpose yards.

Personally, I didn’t have a good or bad experience with agents; I just know the larger reputation of the industry as a whole. My dad was so Manti Te’o Youth jersey not business-minded, much to his fault sometimes — somebody would put a piece of paper in front of him, he would sign it and say, Let’s go get a drink or whatever. Not a read-the-small-print type of guy. I just saw some things happen later in life when he no longer had an agent and know he could’ve benefited by having a set of eyes on some papers. … I think instances like that certainly contributed to me doing this.

A lot of my players, because of their upbringing, and their situation, aren’t quick to trust people. Maybe that’s because people have made promises to them in the past, people have not been there for them in the past, people have disappointed them.

While Rosen could go anywhere from second overall to the middle of the first round, Lamar Jackson might have even more volatility.

The top 10 is out of reach, but multiple teams between No. 11 and No. 18 like Jackson’s game. Many young offensive play-callers and coaches are on board with him as a future NFL quarterback, and his ability to develop in the complex Louisville offense under Bobby Petrino was no easy task.

Ian Kennedy (R), 43.2 percent, Kansas City Royals at Toronto Blue Jays: Toronto’s lineup is much less threatening with Josh Donaldson (shoulder) and Kendrys Morales (hamstring) on the disabled list, making this clash an ideal time to squeeze another trial out of Kennedy’s surprising start to 2018 (1.00 ERA, 16 strikeouts, four walks in 18 frames). His swinging strike rate is only 7.4 percent, but he’s pounding the zone (68.1 first-strike percentage), which could help him churn through this spotty lineup and allow him to prove his worth as at least a deep-league spot play throughout the year.

Washington routed Pittsburgh early in the series, so the Penguins shifted their philosophy to a passive trap and baffled the Caps. As the New York Times put it, Game 7 was “an excruciating finish to a series that bordered on the implausible.” Sounds about right.

Washington was a Presidents’ Trophy-winning, 120-point team that was gutted in the first four games of this series as the Penguins took a 3-1 lead. The Capitals pushed the series to Game 6 back in Pittsburgh, and suddenly it looked like the hockey gods were going to favor them: The Penguins blew a lead in the third period on three straight delay-of-game penalties, and the game went to overtime.

It’s one of the greatest “what ifs” in Capitals history: What if Ovechkin had scored on that breakaway just three minutes into Game 7 on home ice, instead of Fleury snagging it with his mitt? Instead, it was Crosby who opened the scoring less than four minutes later. Ovechkin would score in the second period … after the Penguins had built a 5-0 lead, en route to their 6-2 Game 7 win.canucks_674
