Jerry Jones takes his lumps from Roger Goodell, but no regrets

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones seldom shies away from a fight, even if his record against commissioner Roger Goodell and the league isn’t very good lately.

I don’t think any other team has someone like Marwin Gonzalez. It’s hard enough to play one position well in the big leagues, never mind hit from both sides of the plate and play seven positions at a Gold Glove-caliber level. I think if you asked Marwin, he probably wouldn’t tell you the Game 2 homer was at the top of everybody’s list. But I think it’s up there, for sure.

After the Astros lost three straight games at Yankee Stadium, Justin Verlander threw seven shutout innings to tie the ALCS at three wins each. The Astros wrapped it up a night later on a combined three-hit shutout by Morton and Lance McCullers Jr.

Morton: New York was a trying time for us. When you’re leaving the city, it’s so big, and the night we left the stadium we’re driving over the George Washington Bridge and you see the vastness of the city. There are millions of people there from all over the world who are Yankees fans, and it’s a little intimidating. We went in there and lost three straight. But when we got on that plane and got back to Houston and you look out and Justin Verlander is on the mound, it changes the dynamic. Now we’re back in Houston and we have the upper hand. We win and we’re on our way to the World Series.

The Giants probably won’t trade receiver Odell Beckham Jr., but if they did, there would be a massive market for him. Teams would line up to pay both the high-round draft picks to get him and a huge new contract once they did.

That’s according to sources from several teams, who say the league views Beckham far differently than the Giants do. Other teams see him as worth the trouble. In fact, they don’t see Beckham as much trouble at all.

The Giants say they intend to keep Beckham, which is likely the case. However, two sources whose teams have been in contact with the Giants told B/R that they weren’t as definitive about keeping Beckham as they have been in public. Without question, the sources say the Giants are open to business when it comes to Beckham.

Marwin Gonzalez hit only .180 in the postseason, but he was at the center of two huge moments. He threw out Bird at home plate to preserve Houston’s win over the Yankees in Game 2 of the ALCS, then rushed to the hospital where his wife was giving birth to his son. Gonzalez did something even more improbable in the World Series, going deep off Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning to jump-start a Houston comeback in Game 2 at Dodger Stadium.

The Patriots lost a couple of ers to the Titans in the early hours of free agency and now one of their ers is moving to another AFC South team whose head coach has connections to the organization.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that cornerback Johnson Bademosi has signed a two-year deal to for former Patriots assistant and current Texans head coach Bill O’Brien. Schefter reports it is a two-year, $6.25 million deal.

I was proud of Kyle. Because I think he knew that this was the right thing for our franchise, and he didn’t hesitate. But even then Jimmy had to really prove himself. I think it was really smart. [Kyle] didn’t play him right away. He waited until he had some semblance of an understanding of our scheme when he did put him in. And he put him in in a position to succeed. And then I would tell you that Jimmy really impressed Kyle, to the point that he said, This is our guy .

Marquise Goodwin Kids Jersey An image posted to Martin’s verified Instagram account on Feb. 22 showed a shotgun with ammo and the message: When you’re a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge. The image included references to the Dolphins, and Mike Pouncey and Richie Incognito — his former Miami teammates who were part of a 2014 NFL investigation that determined Martin was victimized by a pattern of harassment directed toward him.

Harvard-Westlake School — where Martin graduated from in 2008 and was shut down on Feb. 23 in response to the post — and two other individuals also were referenced in the image. The post was made eight days Womens Stephen Curry Jersey after a gunman killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Cleveland holds the top pick in the draft, and Jordan Zirm of ESPN Cleveland believes that Darnold’s pro day is the only one that the Browns are sending their full contingent to. The team was present at Mayfield’s and Rosen’s pro days, but聽head coach Hue Jackson and general manager John Dorsey did not attend. Allen will participate in Wyoming’s pro day later this week.聽

The difference, of course, is that Darnold was the only member of that quartet who didn’t throw at the combine. While teams have a lot of college tape to work with, this will present many evaluators with their first chance to get up close and personal to examine Darnold’s mechanics in somewhat of a vacuum.聽

Seahawks may be asking much more from Dion Jordan after Michael Bennett Jersey trade

Defensive end Dion Jordan had not ed in the NFL in over two years due to injuries and suspensions that nearly brought his career to an end. But after compiling four sacks in five games late last season and with Michael Bennett being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday, Jordan may be a vital piece of the Seattle Seahawks defense in 2018.
Youth C.C. Sabathia Replica White/Navy Blue Pinstripe Majestic Jersey: MLB New York Yankees #52 Home Cool Base
Jordan expressed his strong desire to return to Seattle at the end of the season. The need for pass rushers looms large for Seattle moving into the future. It’s not without risk. Jordan will remain just one misstep away from another indefinite suspension by the NFL.

Mens Greg Mancz Jersey My agents were in Indy last week, and we haven’t heard anything, Bulaga said. I guess my thought process on all of that is, ‘No news is good news.’ To me, I’m getting ready to help the Green Bay Packers win football games next year. That’s what I’m doing. I’m preparing myself, getting myself back ready to help this team win football games. To me, I’m not even really worried about any financial aspects of what’s going on or contract talks. That’s Ted Lindsay Womens Jersey out of my hands. We haven’t heard anything but even if we did, I’m not even worried about that. I’m more worried about getting back, getting ready as soon as possible and being ready to contribute when I get back.

I don’t think he has a frailty in anything. I just think the more he gets reps, the more he develops, especially with the looks that are given in the NFL, I think he’s gonna be a prize. I really do. I look forward to continuing to watch his development, his knowledge of the game. The one thing the kid does do I’ll give him credit he lets the ball go with no hesitation. That’s a sign of the great quarterbacks is being that anticipatory thrower and that’s what he is.

Dave Concepcion Womens Jersey Helton admitted that, selfishly, he would have preferred that Darnold return for another year, but Helton believed that, regardless of whether Darnold chose to stay or to leave, he couldn’t have gone wrong. The next question for Darnold will be where he goes in the draft, and where he’s selected in relation to the other top quarterbacks Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield, and Lamar Jackson.

Linebacker Keenan Robinson is set to be a free agent and is uncertain whether his future lies with the Giants or elsewhere. However, he believes the team needs to recapture the same focus and drive it had in 2016 if it wants to get back on track.

Denver never made Kirk Cousins Jersey an offer

After the Deshaun Watson Womens Jersey dust settled on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, his agent listed the teams that swung a sledgehammer. The Broncos weren’t one of them.

That’s the story as told by Mike McCartney to Peter King of SI.com. McCartney ran, as a practical matter, a silent auction for Cousins, with no guarantee that any offer made would result in a visit. The Vikings, Jets, and Cardinals ultimately put packages on the table.

In the grand scheme of things, not many teams came to the table for Cousins. There were still enough to make Cousins the highest paid er in NFL history.
Elite Womens Theo Riddick Jersey
The Colts have Andrew Luck, so they felt good about trading a pick to a quarterback-needy team. They now have the sixth overall pick in the first round, three picks in the second round, and an extra second-round pick in 2019.

New Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins had 84 million reasons, and more, for choosing to continue his career in Minnesota. While the weather probably wasn’t one of them, avoiding the weather was.
Game Kids Riley Dixon Jersey
Appearing on Friday’s PFT Live, Cousins was asked about the impact of ing in an enclosed stadium on his decision.

That point that you’re making is one of the many on a long list of reasons why Minnesota made a lot of sense, Cousins said. I do think the statistics show that it’s favorable to indoors consistently. I do see it as a competitive advantage not only as a quarterback throwing the football but when your defense is able to use that noise to their advantage and trap the sound and hopefully make it tough on an opposing offense. I do see a major home-field advantage at U.S. Bank Stadium. I think the stats show that. I look forward to being a part of that. One of the many positives of being a Viking.

It’s unclear why he was in Houston, or whether there’s any immediate plan for him to actively pursue work in the league.

He’s been out of work since his kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 became a national conversation, with President Donald Trump stoking a fire by referring to wanting to fire any “son of a bitch” who kneeled during the song.

Report: Texans have agreed to terms with Seantrel Henderson Jersey

Authentic Kids Troy Niklas Jersey
Offensive linemen are starting to come off the board, with tackle Seantrel Henderson the latest.
Men's Adidas Boston Bruins #46 David Krejci Premier Black Home NHL Jersey
Henderson has agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with the Texans, NFL Media reports.

The 38-year-old Peppers had 11.0 sacks last year in his return to the team that drafted him second overall in 2002, proving that he can still contribute at a high level.

The Panthers still need to find a starting caliber-defensive end after they released Charles Johnson, but D.J. Fluker Authentic Jersey having Peppers there to rush the passer along with Mario Addison is a big get for the Panthers.

Peppers has 154.5 career sacks, and is fourth on the league’s all-time list. There’s a chance he could pass Hall of Famer Kevin Greene (160.0) for third on that list this season, leaving him behind only Bruce Smith (200.0) and Reggie White (198.0).

Manny Machado Mens Jersey He has 36 catches for 327 yards and one touchdown in his career.

Veteran free-agent tight end Martellus Bennett, whose career was highlighted by winning a Super Bowl championship with the New England Patriots in the 2016 season, announced his retirement Friday night.

Bennett played for the Dallas Cowboys (2008-11), New York Giants (2012), Chicago Bears (2013-15), Patriots (2016, ’17) and Green Bay Packers (2017) and totaled 433 career receptions for 4,573 yards and 30 touchdowns. The 31-year-old also delivered countless colorful soundbites, as his big personality was hard to miss wherever he played.

Bennett said his time in New England was among his most rewarding. He teamed with Rob Gronkowski to form a potent 1-2 combination at tight end as the Patriots went on to win Super Bowl LI. When Gronkowski was lost to a season-ending back injury in the second half of that 2016 season, Bennett emerged as the No. 1 option at the position (he totaled 55 catches for 701 yards and seven TDs in the regular season).

Seahawks extend safety Bradley McDougald Jersey

The Seahawks do have room on the roster for one of their defensive players.
Youth Nike Baltimore Ravens #46 Morgan Cox Limited Olive/USA Flag Salute to Service NFL Jersey
According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Seahawks have agreed to terms on a three-year, $13.95 million deal with safety Bradley McDougald.

The Giants haven’t owned a top-five selection since they drafted Philip Rivers in 2004 and traded him with picks to the then-San Diego Chargers for Manning. Finding another franchise quarterback should be their priority.

Josh Rosen is the most advanced passer of the incoming prospects and has shown a strong understanding of pro-style concepts, reads and the nuances of the position. Rogie Vachon Jersey His drawbacks include a worrisome injury history, including shoulder surgery and two concussions since the end of the 2016 campaign, and poor mobility.

The Jets completed a trade with the Colts to secure the third overall pick without knowing whom the Browns or Giants will select. In this scenario, Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen are off the board, which leaves the Jets to take either Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield or Wyoming’s Josh Allen.

Suh’s contract calls for a cap number of $26.1 million for 2018 and he has a $8.5 million bonus due next week. The Dolphins will only get $3.9 million back if he’s designated as a pre-June 1 cut. If the Dolphins make him a post-June 1 cut, which can’t happen until the league year starts on Wednesday, they will clear $17 million in cap space once we get to June.

Suh posted a video on Twitter early Monday from Seattle, where he said he was on his way to work out and that people should look for some exciting news later in the day. We’ll see if his location gives a hint about one place he may be interested in landing once he is free to talk to other teams and there’s sure to be a fair amount of interest in a player who will be near the top of our free agent rankings if he does become one this week.

Barkley had planned to participate in workouts for pro personnel on Tuesday. However, like Penn State’s other players who went to the NFL scouting combine, he was not going to go through testing again.

I woke up this morning and that was the game plan, Barkley said of doing the workouts, but then when I realized there wasn’t a running backs coach here, I figured there was no point for me to run routes or do drills.

And the level of competition that you’re going against on a daily basis, I mean, it’s JuJu Smith-Schuster against Adoree’ Jackson every day.

From my standpoint, being a quarterback coach by trade, they’re gonna get a kid that’s a great decision-maker, that gets the ball out on time and is extremely accurate. And at the end of the day, they’re getting a kid that produces wins. And that’s the greatest attribute of a quarterback. You don’t see a lot of great quarterbacks on bad teams.

Tom Benson, a successful auto dealer who brought the New Orleans Saints their only winning seasons and the Benson Boogie, has died. Benson, who has also owned the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans since 2012, was 90.

The NFL and NBA teams announced Benson’s death Thursday. He had been hospitalized since Feb. 16 with flu symptoms.

Benson made his mark in pro sports with the Saints, which he bought in 1985 when it appeared the club would be sold to out-of-state interests and perhaps moved out of Louisiana. He paid $70 million for the team, which is now worth close to $2 billion.

In surprise move, Colts cut last year’s prized free agent Johnathan Hankins

The Indianapolis Colts have released their biggest free-agent signing from 2017 one year into his deal.

For the Colts, the move was not financially-driven, but it does save them some cash. The Colts will reap an immediate $8.468 million in salary-cap savings. Because of the structure of Hankins’ deal, the Colts will carry no dead money on their salary cap. Hankins’ $10.5 million in compensation for 2017 all hit the Colts’ cap last year.

It’s not clear whether the Colts tried to trade Hankins. But that effort likely would have been undermined by a trigger in his contract that would have guaranteed $4.5 million of his 2018 base salary if he was still on the roster by Sunday. Because other teams knew the Colts were facing a deadline to make a decision on Hankins, they would have had little leverage in any trade talks because Hankins being cut was the likeliest outcome.

The Colts do have a number of interior defensive linemen on the roster, but none with Hankins’ ability. The position likely will need to be considered in the draft and throughout the remainder of free agency.

Among those remaining are nose tackle Al Woods and defensive tackles Hassan Ridgeway and Grover Stewart.

The Bears put the transition tag on Fuller before the start of free agency, which meant he could negotiate with the rest of the NFL but the Bears would have right of first refusal. A source confirmed a report from the Chicago Tribune that Fuller had signed an offer sheet with the Packers on Friday, the terms of which weren’t immediately known.

Several hours later, NFL Network reported that the Bears had matched the offer, which was reported to be four years, $56 million, including $18 million guaranteed.

The one-year transition tag comes with a one-year salary of $12.971 million, which means the Bears only had to pay $5 million more in guaranteed money to get Fuller signed to a long-term deal.

There may be details of the contract that affect how much Fuller receives, such as a very large base salary or roster bonus in 2018. But it wouldn’t have made sense for the Packers to do such a contract because if the Bears didn’t match they would have been stuck with a huge salary-cap number, which they can’t afford.patriots_086

NFL free agency rumors: DeMarco Murray Jersey visiting Seahawks

DeMarco Murray will be visiting another team this week.
Game Mens Hyun-Jin Ryu Jersey Elite Youth Keyshawn Johnson Green Home Jersey: NFL Nike New York Jets #19 Vapor Untouchable
The Seahawks are scheduled to host the free-agent running back on Wednesday, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported, citing an unidentified source.

His production has been on the decline the past three years, bottoming out at a career-worst 3.4 yards per carry last season,Murray is also coming off a down season, averaging 3.6 yards per carry with the Tennessee Titans last season, but is just one year removed from a 1,287-yard, nine-touchdown campaign,Both Stewart and Murray are over 30 years old.

Stewart turns 31 later this month, while Murray celebrated his 30th birthday last month,If the Lions pass on both veterans, there are some younger options on the market who could help the team’s long-struggling ground game, including Isaiah Crowell, Carlos Hyde and Dion Lewis.

I never got a reason, Butler told the Boston Herald. I feel like this was the reason: I got kind of sick. I went to the hospital. They probably thought I was kind of late on the game plan; I wasn’t as locked in as I should be and could have been a matchup deal. It could have been anything. But Bill Belichick has been doing this for a very long time.

He took a veteran out of Super Bowl XLIX (against the Seahawks) and put in a first-year rookie, and that turned out right, so you could never question his decision. It didn’t work out right (against the Eagles). It didn’t work out the best for me or him or the New England Patriots. But I can say he won more than he lost, so it Michael Conforto Youth jersey is what it is. I always have love for New England, Bill Belichick, Mr. Kraft, all those guys. Life just goes on.

While Butler hasn’t spoken with Patriots coach Bill Belichick since the Super Bowl, he has no hard feelings toward his former team.
