Avery Williamson deserves credit.

Not for being a solid run-stopping linebacker, or the kind of player who will make any defense better.
Men's Reebok Kirk Mclean Premier White Third NHL Jersey: Vancouver Canucks #1 40TH
No, Avery Williamson is a warrior for truth.

Authentic Kids Barry Sanders Jersey The former Titans linebacker was asked why he chose the Jets in free agency, and he gave the best possible answer.

Keeping the defensive mainstays signed for the long term while adding free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins this offseason should keep the Vikings near the top of the NFC for years to come. They reached the NFC Championship Game in the 2017 season, and though they fell short against the Philadelphia Eagles, the core of the team remains one of the NFL’s best.

Harrison was subsequently picked up by the Patriots, recording two sacks and forcing a fumble in his only regular-season game with the club. He also appeared in each of New England’s three playoff games, including a 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl.

Sanchez, 31, likely will appeal the suspension. In the meantime, he will hope for a call from a team in need of a veteran quarterback who has experience mentoring young talent, like Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch with the Broncos, Dak Prescott with the Cowboys and Mitchell Trubisky with the Bears.

Sanchez never played like the franchise quarterback the Jets envisioned when they selected him with the No. 5 overall pick in 2009. Starting almost every Richie Ashburn Youth jersey game over four years, Sanchez threw more interceptions (69) than touchdowns (68).

The onerous criteria Gettleman established for this No. 2 pick will be what likely steers the Giants away from a quarterback. Remember, Gettleman insists the second pick in the draft must be a player who projects to be a Hall of Famer and also is worthy of the second-overall selection in any draft.

I don’t think Dave will take a quarterback,” the national scout said. I don’t see it. I could see Chubb putting on that gold jacket. I could see Nelson putting on that gold jacket. Barkley, no question. If you have a crystal ball and say, ‘This guy is gonna be an annual All-Pro and make it to the Hall of Fame,’ Barkley would be the No. 1 guy.”

Where does the Reuben Foster situation go from here?

The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office on Thursday announced charges against linebacker Reuben Foster that even the 49ers organization labeled as disturbing.
Men's Nike Buffalo Bills #55 Jerry Hughes White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
Foster remains a member of the 49ers, as the allegations that surfaced this week were not enough to prompt the 49ers to release him.

And it appears obvious the decision-makers of the 49ers are skeptical of the information the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office included in its report.

This is clear: If Foster hit the woman once 鈥?let alone eight to 10 times 鈥?and, certainly, if his actions caused her to sustain a ruptured ear drum, the 49ers do not have any other option but to release him.

Is there a double standard?

Elite John Jerry Jersey Slow down, just enough to stay focused and avoid making a mistake simply because the wide receiver is moving too fast. That’s easier said than done for the man who had no offers from any FBS college coming out of high school and chose to walk on at Memphis. Miller is in a hurry to prove he’s the best wide receiver in the 2018 NFL draft.”There’s not anything in my Janoris Jenkins Authentic Jersey game that somebody can say that I don’t have,” Miller said.”I feel like I bring a lot to the table, and I feel like I deserve a chance. That’s really all I need is a chance.

Crabbe’s career-high 41 lifts Nets to 3rd straight win

The rebuilding Brooklyn Nets have finally started to click over the season’s final month.

Allen Crabbe is hoping it’ll carry over to next season.

Crabbe scored 20 of his career-high 41 points in the first quarter and the Nets beat the Chicago Bulls 114-105 on Monday night for their first three-game winning streak this season.

Kane last played at the world championships in 2008, his first in the NHL and the last time the Blackhawks missed the playoffs. The three-time Stanley Cup winner’s presence should improve the quality of play at the tournament and boost the interest in fellow U.S. players to join him.

I think what it says is it doesn’t matter where you are in hockey, if you love the game, you want to be part of it and respect USA Hockey and Pat Kane showed up, Zito said. It’s really exciting. I think it’s exciting for the whole tournament. It’s a great day for USA Hockey and for hockey in general.

Andrew Adams Kids Jersey The Pelicans shot 51 percent from the field and 56 percent from 3-point range in the first half. The Clippers fought back from an 11-point deficit to lead 47-45 before New Orleans closed on a 13-2 run to lead 59-49 at the break.

The Pelicans were just getting rolling.

Their scoring binge continued into the third, and when it was over — a 33-6 spurt over both halves — they led 79-53. Davis had nine points, Mirotic eight and E’Twaun Moore seven.

Anthony has taken this team and put it on his back, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. If we could have had a better record his name would definitely be in the MVP conversation.

Bears expected to sign Earl Watford

The Bears and Cardinals became the first two teams to start their offseason programs on Tuesday and it looks like guard Earl Watford will be joining one of those programs soon.

Unlike his first four seasons, he won’t be spending the offseason in Arizona. Watford tweeted out “GSH” on Tuesday and it’s apparently not a coincidence that he went with the initials of Bears founder George S. Halas a day after visiting the Bears.

Wilmer Flores (R), 3 percent, New York Mets at Washington Nationals (LHP Gio Gonzalez): The Mets haven’t faced a starting southpaw yet, but the expectation is for Flores to man first base. The 26-year-old infielder could be a regular but for now is relegated to the lesser side of a platoon with Adrian Gonzalez. Flores looks to continue his production versus left-handers, tallying an impressive 1.093 OPS in 2016 and .862 last season.

Niklas was a second-round pick by the Cardinals in 2014 — Matthews was also a second-rounder that year — and saw his most playing time in 2017 by starting 11 times in Arizona. Niklas only caught 11 passes in 15 overall appearances, which did little to change the view that his greatest utility at the NFL level comes as a blocker.

The Wolves and Spurs can move up or down — or even miss the playoffs! — but the most likely outcome for each is to finish either fifth or sixth. Exactly how that plays out — and how the seedings above them play out — is especially intriguing when we look at how our rating system views Portland and Utah.

For the Wolves, the most likely playoff opponent is the Jazz, third in our RPM-based power rankings. Meanwhile, the Spurs might face the Blazers in a series that appears to be a potential upset, given Portland’s likely status as a relatively weak No. 3 seed.

Jorge Alfaro (R), 5 percent, Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins (LHP Dillon Peters): Alfaro’s prospect star has dimmed a bit, but the Phillies are still giving him first dibs on the regular gig, with fellow prospect Andrew Knapp looming. Alfaro has some pop but struggles with contact. Peters was impressive in his first effort but isn’t dominant, giving Alfaro a chance to improve upon his seven whiffs in nine at bats pace.buccaneers_093

Richard Sherman explains why he acted as his own agent

The 49ers newest cornerback said he wanted to make sure someone had his best interests at heart, so why wouldn’t he make sure those interests were served.

I think that a lot of times in our league there are players that have the ability to do that and have the ability to structure their own deals and really take advantage of just being in control of their own destiny, Sherman said, via ESPN.com.

…I didn’t feel like I needed an agent. I felt like I knew contracts well enough and I felt like coming off the Achilles (injury), there’s going to be negotiation points, there’s going to be give and takes on both sides, and I felt comfortable with that.

Sherman also addressed his torn Achilles and how that factored into his contract with the 49ers 鈥?and what led to the Seahawks not matching their offer.

He wrote he has a $2 million roster bonus he will receive if he can pass a physical before Nov. 11, and that he already has a $3 million signing bonus. Should Sherman pass the physical (he said he should be ready to go for full drills by June), he will have $5 million in guaranteed money in 2018.

There’s three things in life and in football that if you can master and you can remember from time to time, you’ll be able to be successful 鈥?be on time, pay attention and work hard, Thomas said. If you can do those three things in life or on the football field, you have an opportunity to have great success, and I thank you guys for all those great lessons that I learned.

He couldn’t keep it serious for too long, though, saying with a smile Authentic Donald Trump Jersey that everyone he thanked was going to help make his book a New York Times best-seller.

Thomas’ best season came in his rookie year, 2007, when Cleveland went 10-6 and barely missed out on the playoffs. As many know, since then the Browns have been stuck in a franchise rut. Thomas was the lone positive constant: He played a record 10,363 consecutive offensive snaps until a triceps injury ended his 2017 season and, eventually, his career.

He didn’t forget to thank former backup Vinston Painter 鈥?the player who tried to sub Thomas out one game 鈥?for helping keep the snap streak alive.

As far as his career after football, Thomas was noncommittal, but he has had success with his podcast, The ThomaHawk Show, with former teammate Andrew Hawkins, and he has interviewed with several networks, so a TV role could be coming.

I think you guys will probably see him very soon.

Limited Mens Connor Cook Jersey Vargas threw 65 pitches over four simulated innings Monday, when New York’s scheduled game against the Phillies was postponed due to wintry weather. The left-hander is on the 10-day DL following surgery last month for a broken bone in his right hand.

The next step for Vargas, who signed a $16 million, two-year contract with the Mets as a free agent in February, is another simulated game in Florida in four days.

Youth Nico Siragusa Jersey On May 5, 1918, Ruth played first base in an exhibition game. (Yes, the Red Sox played exhibition games in the middle of the season.) The next day, he played first base in a major league game for Mike Gartner Jersey the first time and homered.

He then played first base the next day and homered again, and on May 9, he took his turn in the rotation and pitched into the 10th inning. He spent most of the rest of the 1918 season playing the outfield (including some center field) while starting 19 games as a pitcher. He led the majors in homers (11), OPS (.966) and strikeouts (58) while finishing fourth in the AL in total WAR (7.0).

Now granted, Shula for the past 7 years has coached a pretty good quarterback with a strong personality 鈥?maybe you’ve heard of him: Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers. Talent trumps all. So if the Giants feel one of these QBs is clearly above the rest and he’s available when they pick second overall, they are expected to take him.

No position sets the tone of a team more than its quarterback. And so, if GM Dave Gettleman and Shurmur and Shula are consistent with this philosophy when they evaluate QBs, this is probably a differentiating factor that sheds some light on what direction they might lean.

Closer Carousel: What to do with a struggling Kenley Jansen

Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Kenley Jansen is special and does not struggle with performance, injury or anything else, most everyone believes. He is different, everyone will point out, and that is why selecting a closer in the fourth round has not looked so strange.

A day after New York’s home opener was postponed because of 5 1/2 inches of snow, the game started slightly late at 4:19 p.m. in a light, steady rain and with a 40-degree temperature. The stands were half-full despite an announced crowd of 46,776, and the Yankees called off the pregame introductions that Boone had been looking forward to.

After his third homer , Villanueva popped out of the dugout to answer a curtain call from the crowd of 19,283.

Another dream come true, Villanueva said through an interpreter. It’s amazing, especially on a night like tonight, getting the first win. I was just happy I was able to play Womens Robbie Gould Jersey my part. I think we all played really well, the pitching was great, and I think if we’re able to play that way all together as a team that it’s going to be a good year.

Toronto manager John Gibbons said he wished he could have taken credit for sending the runner home in such a crucial spot, but that it was all Pillar.

I’ve never seen anybody ever do it from the stretch [windup]. That’s almost a no-no, Gibbons said. But you could see him coming off third base, and you knew it didn’t look normal. He did it.

That’s pretty cool.

When Pillar ran to the outfield moments later to play defense in the top of the ninth, he had another brief conversation with Granderson. Granderson told Pillar that was the first straight steal of home he had seen as a big leaguer.

Kiper has Wyoming’s Josh Allen and USC’s Sam Darnold going first and second overall, to the Browns and Giants. And then Rosen goes to the Jets, as the third quarterback off the board.

Manziel says he’ll play in CFL if NFL opportunity doesn’t come

If the NFL doesn’t want Johnny Manziel ‘s services, he’s willing to take them north of the border. After a Tuesday workout in front of scouts at the pro day of his alma mater Texas A&M, the 25-year-old told reporters he’d play in the Canadian Football League should a second chance in the NFL remain elusive. If something pops up, it pops up, Manziel said, via TSN. And if not, and I don’t get the opportunity to go back, I’m going to go play in the CFL. And things are going to be fine.

As it turns out, they’re not planning on doing so. After less than 13 months with the team, Cooks has been moved out West to the Rams, who sent the 23rd overall pick and one of their five sixth-round selections in exchange for the 24-year-old Cooks and a fourth-rounder. I don’t think Bill Belichick necessarily acquired Cooks with the idea that he would trade the receiver a year later, but in a market where players like Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins are making $16 million per season, the Patriots might have blanched at the idea of paying Cooks an even larger annual salary.

Boykin signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent after the 2016 NFL Draft. He played in five games of limited action as a rookie. He spent the 2017 season on the practice squad, with Austin Davis being the team’s primary backup to Russell Wilson. Davis is currently a free agent and is expected to be re-signed this offseason.

The Patriots have occasionally traded up on draft day, with Rob Gronkowski serving as an example of one such player. If Belichick sees a quarterback he thinks could serve as the long-term replacement for Tom Brady, would he package some or all of those picks to move up and grab somebody The Patriots couldn’t afford to hold onto Garoppolo given that the now-49ers starter was going to be a free agent after the 2017 season, but whichever quarterback they draft would be making what amounts to a backup passer’s salary and have plenty of time to develop behind Brady.

Thomas Dimitroff can’t put timetable on getting Matt Ryan a new deal

I couldn’t even put a (timetable on it). I don’t know how close we are, Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said on Wednesday. I can’t. We talk about it and it seems like things are right around the corner.

The Saints were in on former Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson, who looks destined to play the slot as he enters his 11th NFL season. The Saints were also interested in Jimmy Graham, another slot option who had his best production as a big receiver in the New Orleans offense.

Elite Mens Kamalei Correa Jersey Clearly, the Saints want help in the slot. That’s where Jordan Matthews can help immediately.

Despite a disappointing year in Buffalo in 2017, Matthews started his career with three productive seasons in Philadelphia, playing mostly from the slot. He could give Drew Brees the big, reliable target he needs in the middle of the field.

I think he’s second to none. He has all the mechanical aspects. Good decision-maker, gets the ball out on time, and provides great accuracy at the position. At the end of the day, I’ve always thought great quarterbacks just win and produce.

It’s not the way that you want to do it, but I’m definitely excited for the opportunity and to get a chance to play, Austin said. Just being on this team is special, so I’m excited.

Austin feels that he had a good spring even though he went into Monday hitting just.227 with four homers in 44 at-bats over 19 games.

I think it went well, he said. I think I’ve made some strides defensively and offensively. I feel like I saw a lot of pitches.

Austin feels bad for Bird, who missed all of 2015 recovering from offseason shoulder surgery plus another 3 1/2 months last season when a late spring injury to his right foot led to July surgery.

Nelson is generally regarded as the top offensive lineman in the draft and could buck the trend that’s seen teams shy away from guards at the top of the first round. He said this week that he considers himself a nastyer who is well suited to win battles with the top interior defensive linemen in the league.
