Victor Cruz still wants to salsa in the end zone for an NFL team.
Youth Majestic Toronto Blue Jays #32 Roy Halladay Replica Grey Road MLB Jersey
The receiver, 31, is vying to play for an NFL team this year, but said if no one shows interest, he will call it a career.

I just love the game. I think I can still play, Cruz said at the BTIG Charity Day event in Manhattan, via ESPN.com. I don’t want to exhaust all of that before I fall off.

Cruz was cut from Authentic Latavius Murray Jersey the Bears last summer and didn’t play at all in 2017. His last full season was with the Giants 鈥?where he spent the first seven years of his career 鈥?in 2016.

Elite Stefen Wisniewski Jersey Last year, the line wasn’t a strong point, Green admits. Getting (Price) and Cordy really beefs up the line. Everything for us starts up front. Last year, Andy was getting a lot of pressure. This is really going to help us out with the running game and the big plays downfield that we didn’t really have last year.

Scott Wilson Kids Jersey Alabama also led all colleges with four first-round picks. That included Minkah Fitzpatrick (Dolphins, No. 11), Da’Ron Payne (Redskins, No. 13), Rashaan Evans (Titans, No. 22) and Calvin Ridley (Falcons, No. 26). Alabama also had four first-round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Mayfield wore an orange No. 6 jersey at rookie minicamp, and it didn’t take long for him to showcase the free-range flair that evokes best-case comparisons to Brett Favre, worst-case comparisons to Johnny Manziel and everything in between.

This is the player who walked on at Texas Tech and turned into a Heisman winner at Oklahoma. While Mayfield’s first few interviews as a pro have been somewhat refined, his voice ticked up when talking about life as a walk-on and a transfer. He’s excited about what it will take to become a starter in the NFL, and he’s putting the rest of college and the draft process 鈥?the good and the bad 鈥?behind him.

Former NFL running back Andy Johnson dies at 65

Former Patriots running back Andy Johnson died early Wednesday morning after a long illness. He was 65.

The Patriots made him a fifth-round pick in 1974 out of Georgia. He spent eight seasons with New England before finishing his pro career with the USFL’s Boston Breakers in 1983.

Johnson rushed for 2,017 yards and 13 touchdowns on 491 carries in his Patriots’ career. He also caught 161 passes for 1,807 yards and nine touchdowns.

According to ESPN Stats & Information tracking, the Warriors pushed the ball up the court via a run out or outlet only three times in the fourth quarter after doing so 22 times in the first three quarters.

Of course, Houston could say the same thing. The Rockets played only seven men Tuesday night, and the seventh man in that rotation, Gerald Green, logged just 12 minutes.

Aaron Carey, who attended St. Vincent/St. Mary six years after James graduated, has organized a GoFundMe account and hopes to raise $1 million to commission a life-size statue of James.

“First of all, thank you,” James said at Cavs shootaround Monday morning when informed of the planned statue. “It would be cool, not only for myself, but for my family and all the people that had anything to do with this journey thus far. I’m appreciative even of the thought.”

Carey has already reached out to artist Omri Amrany, who designed and built several of the bronze statues outside Staples Center in Los Angeles honoring former Lakers.

Amrany rendered a design of a high-school-age James in his signature headband and No. 23 high school jersey midflight on a hammer dunk with one tweak — he’s wearing his first signature Nike shoe, the Air Zoom Generation, which weren’t released until James was in the NBA.

James was asked what pose he would want for the statue.ravens_123

Terrell Owens wonders why Jerry Jones doesn’t fire Jason Garrett Jersey

Jason Garrett was the offensive coordinator for two of Terrell Owens’ three seasons in Dallas, but as a head coach, Garrett is in over his head, Owens says.
DeForest Buckner Youth Jersey Men's Limited Marvin Harrison Royal Blue Jersey: Rush Vapor Untouchable #88 NFL Indianapolis Colts Nike
Owens said on 105.3 The Fan that he he doesn’t know why Garrett remains the coach despite never advancing past the divisional round of the playoffs.

From Foster’s perspective, however, the sooner he’s legally cleared, the sooner he can get back to work with the 49ers, who have placed him on leave while the legal process unfolds.

While Ezekiel Elliott might not call last season a bad year, it’s fair to say it wasn’t a good one. The Cowboys running back drew criticism inside the building and out for his lack of effort in the loss to the Broncos; he served a six-game suspension after a long legal fight; he averaged 1 yard per carry and 10 yards per game less last season than he did his rookie season when he led the league in rushing; and the Cowboys missed the postseason.

But the process didn’t start with the truth. The process began with unnamed sources pushing false narratives to the media aimed at justifying his unemployment for football reasons. And the anti-Kaepernick crowd still continues to indiscriminately rattle off one of more of these long-debunked reasons even now, months after the NFL finally conceded that the all-about-football decision was only about non-football considerations.
Youth Natrell Jamerson Jersey
It started with the attack against Kaepernick for opting out of his contract, a red herring that was quickly debunked by 49ers G.M. John Lynch, who said on PFT Live that Kaepernick would have been cut if he hadn’t chosen to rip up his deal and become a free agent in March 2017. It continued with someone pushing to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com the notion that Kaepernick wanted a salary in the range of $9 million to $10 million per Authentic Marshall Newhouse Jersey year and a chance to compete for a starting job. But no one actually knew what Kaepernick wanted at the time, because the conversation hadn’t progressed to the point where anyone had asked Kaepernick or his agents what he wanted at the time.

Browns sign Antonio Callaway Jersey, Chad Thomas

The Browns signed two more draft picks, getting defensive lineman Chad Thomas and receiver Antonio Callaway under contract Tuesday.
Limited Dante Pettis Youth Olive/Gold Nike Jersey - #18 NFL San Francisco 49ers 2017 Salute to Service
Cleveland has signed six of its nine draft choices, previously getting offensive lineman Austin Corbett (second round), linebacker Genard Avery (fifth round), receiver Damion Ratley (sixth round) and defensive back Simeon Thomas (sixth round) under contract.
Authentic Kids Bo Jackson Jersey
The Panthers make three consecutive NFL teams to be sold for $1 billion or more, and none of them 鈥?Panthers, Bills or Cleveland Browns 鈥?would be considered one of the league’s marquee franchises. If the Browns can command $1 billion, imagine what the Dallas Cowboys would go for on the open market. Or one of the New York teams.

And we haven’t even factored legalized sports betting into the equation yet. Imagine what Tepper would have had to pay had Richardson waited a week or two to finalize the deal. $2.5 billion? $3 billion?

No doubt we’ll soon find out. The Tennessee Titans, Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints are considered the teams most likely to be on the block next, and the initial asking price just got higher.
Womens Mark Messier Jersey
The NFL has its flaws, no question. Making its wealthy owners even wealthier is not one of them.

Melifonwu, a second-round pick in 2017, began last season on injured reserve with a knee injury and finished it on injured reserve with a hip injury. He continues to rehab his hip, sitting out 11-on-11 work.

Haven’t seen much of Obi except in the training room, Gruden said.

Melifonwu played in only five games, with one start, last season. He played 34 defensive snaps and 42 special teams snaps.

Assumption 1A: Assume Ohtani is exactly this good a hitter: He’s David Ortiz. He’s Joey Votto. That’s what he has been so far, with a .321/.367/.619 slash line and a 167 wRC+, which means he has been 67 percent better than an average hitter. Giancarlo Stanton has never had a wRC+ that high, nor Paul Goldschmidt. Last season, Votto’s was Maurkice Pouncey Youth jersey 165. In his final season, when he finished sixth in MVP voting, Ortiz’s was 164. If Ohtani hits forever like he’s hitting right now, he’s probably the second- or third-best hitter in baseball. Absent any other data, you are allowed to assume this.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson Jersey starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.
NFL Nike Women's Dan Marino White Road Elite Jersey - #13 Miami Dolphins Vapor Untouchable
Bovado, an online gambling site,聽has set the odds聽on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the聽popular narrative that Lamar Jackson聽will be the Ravens’ starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select聽thequarterback out of Louisville at No. 32.

As a rookie, Williams had a productive year. The Utah product finished the season as one of just three rookies with four interceptions or more. He also logged seven pass breakups.聽
Sterling Shepard Limited Jersey
Felix Potvin Authentic Jersey Lattimore’s stellar campaign overshadowed Williams, but the playmaking free safety will take another step in his sophomore year to establish himself as one聽of the best young talents at his position.

At the center of the dispute were messages from Manning to a team equipment manager asking for helmets that can pass as game used.

The plaintiffs said they were duped by Manning into paying for game-used items that weren’t actually used in games. Now that issue will not go before a jury, and Manning has put it behind him.

Prior to Monday night’s settlement, Superior Court Judge Charles E. Powers Jr. said attorneys instead will only begin picking the jury next Monday, in a process that may take several days.

The reason? A death in the family of an attorney for Joe Skiba, the Giants equipment manager accused of giving Manning football equipment to be fraudulently sold as game-used to collectors.

Both Manning and Giants owner John Mara were deposed in the case.

Rather than try to just get some sloppy leftovers I might as well just hang it up.

A first-round pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 2004, Hall spent the past nine and a half seasons with Tomas Plekanec Jersey the Redskins. Hall was traded from the Falcons to the Raiders in March 2008. He lasted just eight games in Oakland before being cut. Hall signed in Washington three days later to a one-year contract. He quickly became a staple in the Redskins secondary, first as a corner, then making the transition to safety.

Wilks on Cardinals QBs: ‘Sam Bradford is our starter’

Prior to last month’s draft, All Pro running back David Johnson predicted the Cardinals will boast the NFL’s top offense this season if Sam Bradford stays healthy.

Now that first-round draft pick Josh Rosen has arrived as Arizona’s quarterback of the future, though, it’s fair to wonder if Bradford will be under center when the season opens.

New coach Steve Wilks addressed the issue on Friday’s edition of Rookie Camp Live, telling NFL Network’s Omar Ruiz that Bradford is atop the depth chart but Rosen can win the job.

Alex Smith was the exception to the rule last year, holding off promising Patrick Mahomes while making a run at the MVP trophy.

As long as he doesn’t faceplant in preseason action, Bradford will enter the season as Arizona’s starter. How long he stays there is up to him — and his increasingly fragile body.

We’ve done OK even with him going through this little funk this last week, Boone said. I think even the last couple of days, he smoked two balls yesterday — one off the pitcher, one to straightaway center. I thought he had a couple good at-bats the day before where he hit the ball the other way pretty well. Matter of time for me with Didi but right now no.

As for Torres, he’s hitting.344 with three homers — including a solo shot in Friday’s 10-5 loss to the Athletics. HE’s also got 12 RBI in 19 games started at second base.

Torres has been hitting ninth.

Boone said he considered moving Torres up in the lineup against Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez on Thursday but he didn’t do it.

Boone said he sees Torres, the team’s top prospect, as a second leadoff man down there.

There’s always that chance I could move him up but right now I like him so much in that nine hole because he becomes like another leadoff hitter down there and gives us such a presence at the bottom of the order, Boone said.

Report: Rob Gronkowski Jersey, Patriots Working on Restructuring TE’s Contract

Now that Rob Gronkowski has informed the New England Patriots he’ll be returning for the 2018 season, it appears as though they’ve gone to work on a new Authentic Zach Miller Jersey contract.
Kids Kony Ealy Jersey Women's Majestic Seattle Mariners #18 Hisashi Iwakuma Replica Grey Road Cool Base MLB Jersey
Karen Guregian聽of the聽Boston Herald reported聽the Patriots plan on tweaking the tight end’s deal.

Kids Duke Riley Jersey Gronkowski, 28, has two years remaining on his contract with $17 million in base salary. According to Jeff Howe of The Athletic, he could earn up to $9 million in 2018 under his current deal, including bonuses.聽

Gronkowski recorded 69 receptions for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns to earn his fourth first-team All-Pro selection. His and quarterback Tom Brady’s relationship with head coach Bill Belichick has been the subject of multiple reports throughout the offseason.

Brady recently declined to answer when sportscaster Jim Gray聽asked him聽whether the Patriots appreciated him and had the appropriate gratitude for all he had accomplished.聽

However, he held a $18.1 million cap hit in 2019-20 combined if he remained with the team.

As Mike Chappell of Fox59 noted, Fleener only received $14.6 million of his original $36 million deal over the last two seasons.

The Saints also didn’t get what they were hoping for in Fleener, who totaled just 926 yards and five touchdowns across the last two seasons. His 2017 season ended after just 11 games due to a concussion, but he struggled before the injury while exclusively coming off the bench.

The 29-year-old had 22 catches for 295 yards last season, while Josh Hill and聽Michael Hoomanawanui聽earned the majority of playing time at tight end. According to聽Pro Football Reference, Fleener only played 25.94 percent of offensive snaps for the Saints in 2017.

Texans sign Justin Reid Jersey

Safety Justin Reid was the first player selected by the Texans in the 2018 NFL Draft and he’s also the first member of the draft class to agree to a contract.
Limited Brynden Trawick Youth Road White Nike Jersey - #41 NFL Tennessee Titans Vapor Untouchable
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that Reid has agreed to his four-year rookie deal with the team. The Texans made Reid the 68th overall pick of the draft after sitting out the first two rounds of the draft as a result of a pair of trades they made in 2017.

The Eagles lost Trey Burton to the Bears and released Brent Celek earlier this offseason, opening a massive void at the tight end position behind Zach Ertz. After trading down from 32nd overall, the Eagles spent their first pick as Super Bowl champions on Goedert, who is arguably the top TE in the class. Goedert is a good athlete with a 6-foot-5, 256-pound frame. He has long 34-inch arms with solid speed and good ball skills.
Limited Mens Wil Myers Jersey
His fantasy value is absolutely crushed by the presence of Ertz, so he simply won’t be worth your attention in all but deep dynasty leagues. Philadelphia had two-plus tight ends on the field on 30 percent of pass plays last year.

ESPN reports that Jernigan and the Eagles have agreed on a revised contract. Jernigan will still be guaranteed $3 million for the 2018 season, but will no longer have $11 million in guaranteed money coming his way in 2019. The final three years of the deal 鈥?the $12 million a year Jernigan was set to earn in 2019 and 2020 was never guaranteed 鈥?will now be option years.

Jernigan was acquired by the Eagles in a trade with the Ravens last year and played a starting role up front for the Super Bowl LII champs.

The Lions are looking to get bigger at running back during the Matt Patricia era, as shown by the signing of LeGarrette Blount and Friday’s selection of Johnson. The former Tiger is 5-foot-11, 213 pounds and lacks speed, but excels as a pass-catcher and blocker. Johnson’s efficiency was underwhelming on a hefty 285 carries last year, but he did DaMarcus Beasley Womens Jersey catch all but one of his 25 targets and averaged 12.8 yards after the catch.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Youth Jersey Johnson could be a three-down back down the road, but he’s likely to work from a timeshare along with some combination of Blount, passing-down specialist Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah in 2018. He’s worth a late-round flier and is a fringe first-round target in rookie drafts. Set to turn 21 in late June, Johnson is the second-youngest back in this year’s class.

Patriots cut Jason King Jersey

The Patriots announced they have released offensive lineman Jason King.
Nike C.C. Sabathia - MLB New York Yankees #52 Ash Backer Pullover Hoodie
King, 24, signed a futures contract with New England on February 6.

He originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent on May 5, 2017, signing with the Patriots. King went through training camp with the team, but the Patriots released him before the start of the regular season.
Matt Belisle Elite Jersey
At some point, you have to adjust. Duck some Rubio screens, and dare him to shoot pull-ups from 18 and 20 feet. Force him to run second and third pick-and-rolls to meander into his sweet spots. Plop Adams two steps closer to the paint. Trapping Rubio is self-defeating if you are going to rotate either wildly or not at all behind the play.
Geno Atkins Elite Jersey
In that clip above, Anthony doesn’t bother bumping Gobert. Perhaps he assumes Westbrook, on Ingles in the corner, will do it. Westbrook, vacillating as usual on defense between inattention and misguided hyperactivity, does nothing. Perhaps he expected Anthony to do the work early. In the end, nobody did. This happened again and again. This is the kind of basic stuff — communication, scheme, general coherence — you are supposed to work out by Thanksgiving.

It鈥檚 the second time that Person has signed a contract to join the team. He entered the league as a Authentic Brandon Thompson Jersey Niners seventh-round pick in 2011, but never played in a regular season game for the team. Person got into a game with the Seahawks in 2013, played all 16 games for the Rams in 2014 and made 14 starts at center for the Falcons during the 2015 season. He spent last season with the Colts and made four starts while appearing in 12 games.

Person gives the 49ers an experienced option at center behind free agent acquisition Weston Richburg.

Rice presented the commission’s report to the NCAA’s Board of Governors and Division I Board of Directors at the association’s headquarters Wednesday. She called the crisis in college basketball first and foremost a problem of failed accountability and lax responsibility.

Said Emmert at the Final Four: Just to be blunt about it, you don’t waste Condoleezza Rice’s time if you’re not serious about it.

It was humbling to hear — and, frankly, Paul Martin didn’t want to listen.

The San Jose Sharks defenseman had undergone surgery over the summer to repair ligaments in his ankle. Three games into the season, he aggravated the injury and was sidelined for two months. He injured his back at the gym, setting him back even further. Finally, on Dec. 7, he returned to the Sharks’ lineup against the Carolina Hurricanes. After the game, his coaches delivered some tough love: He still wasn’t ready for prime time.

Martin, who had signed a four-year, $19.4 million contract with San Jose in 2015, coached himself into some own tough love: he was determined to make the most of his situation. On the first road trip to Tucson, he treated the team to a steak dinner. He made it a point to get to know his teammates and share tips he had learned, and took 22-year-old Mike Brodzinski, a fellow University of Minnesota product, under his wing. The team wholeheartedly embraced its new big brother.

The Redskins covet both Minkah Fitzpatrick and Vea. Expect a team to move up for Fitzpatrick if he falls past No. 11, but the Redskins would be happy with either of the two.

Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama: Arizona might have to wait until a later round to pull the trigger on a quarterback. Instead, Ridley would add another dimension as a deep threat to a potentially explosive offense and provide a needed option beyond Larry Fitzgerald.

Marcus Davenport, DE, Texas-San Antonio: Facing his last draft in Baltimore, Ozzie Newsome might be inclined to find Terrell Suggs’ successor with the massive Davenport, who would be well-served by some pass rushing classes at Ball So Hard University.

Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State: No team gave up more yards per carry (4.9) last season than the Bolts. Vander Esch’s lateral speed and battering-ram hits would be a salve, especially if he shows more restraint in his pursuit.

He hasn’t done much with them, going 6-for-32 with just two RBI and 13 strikeouts, but a 10th start may help him catch the often walk-happy Ross with a little less zip, following his Friday gem that taxed him for 127 pitches.canucks_666
