Bucs QB Jameis Winston Jersey apologizes as NFL confirms 3-game suspension to start season

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston apologized Thursday for the actions that led to him being suspended for three games to start the 2018 season, as the NFL made official the news that had been previously reported by multiple media organizations.

I know I have to hold myself to a higher standard on and off the field and that I have a responsibility to my family, community, and teammates to live above the platform with which God has blessed me. I apologize to my teammates, the Buccaneers organization and fans for letting them down and for not being able to be out there for the first three games of the season. Although I am disappointed in the NFL’s decision, I understand the NFL’s process, and I embrace this as an opportunity to take advantage of the resources available to help me achieve the goals that I have for myself.

This offseason, (Tomlinson’s) hard work and dedication paid off as he continued to progress and performed at a high level, San Francisco general manager John Lynch said in a statement. We were confident we could work out a contract extension with Laken and we are fired up to get that done before training camp.

Tomlinson was originally selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Duke by the Lions. He spent two seasons in Detroit before he was traded to San Francisco in August 2017.

Laken is a very talented player who has improved consistently since joining the team one week before last year’s season opener, Lynch said.

The 49ers opened 2017-18 with a 1-10 record. But, they acquired Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo Authentic Jake Allen Jersey in late October and won all five of his starts to end the season.

When you meet a lot of people that are going through it, you in turn get inspired and motivated. You find some really strong people out there, some who come out as survivors, some who don’t. You can learn from each of them. Every time I come into contact with one, I find something else to try to make me Andy Janovich Jersey better off the field and a better football player, not letting anything bring me down.

Cornerback Patrick Peterson Jersey is one of the best in the league.

Safety Tyrann Mathieu led the league in total snaps. Linebacker Chandler Jones led the NFL in sacks, safety Antoine Bethea is coming off one of his best seasons and safety Budda Baker is trending toward star status.

On having a shutdown cornerback like Peterson: To know you have a cornerback on the edge of the defense that can cover and take away some of the better receivers in the league is pretty special. You feel good about that, but at the same time, there are 10 other guys out there on the field and everybody has to do their part.

We’ll see exactly how his contract situation plays out, but those last three practices were basically the only ones he missed once players returned in early April. He was in all the meetings and on the field, he looked like the guy who was gaining more than 2,000 scrimmage yards in 2016. Assuming the two sides get the contract thing resolved – and that seems much more likely than not – Johnson looks primed to have a big year.

He gets off on the second floor and slides into his hotel Christian Kirk Jersey room, one day closer to his NFL debut.

So Fitzgerald has been out in April and May and now June, flashing his one-handed catches and always taking the first rep for the wide receivers in every drill, sweating in the 100-degree-plus heat. His return for a 15th season with a chance to make 100-plus catches for a fourth straight season has been settled for a while although exactly how Fitzgerald will be deployed in Mike McCoy’s system is still under development.

Wilks reiterated Fitzgerald is the Cardinals’ No. 1 receiver, something that probably could have gone unsaid. His praise for Fitzgerald’s presence is notable, however.

It means a lot to me as a first-year head coach, Wilks said. It can be an extension of your voice in Kendall Wright Authentic Jersey the locker room.

There are a lot of elite guys who don’t come to OTAs in the league, Kirk said. He’s one of the most seasoned veterans, who has done so much, and he comes to everything, he’s at every meeting, he’s at every workout, he’s at every practice. He sets the standard.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford Jersey finds himself in the opposite situation. No stars, plenty of options. 

Golden Tate is not a top-end No. 1 receiver, but he consistently puts up strong rate-based stats and has gone over 1,000 yards in three of his four seasons with the team. No. 2 Marvin Jones has improved steadily and is coming off his best season yet (1,101 yards, 18.0 yards per catch, nine touchdowns). Second-year third-round pick Kenny Golladay has shown a ton of promise and is likely to be a solid third option at the least. And T.J. Jones is also in his prime and coming off the best season of his career.

At tight end, they parted ways with Eric Ebron and Darren Fells and brought in Luke Willson and Levine Toilolo in the offseason, and it’s hard to consider that an upgrade when Ebron—despite not living up to expectations Darren Sproles Womens Jersey as a top-10 pick—has been far more productive than either of the newbies. Still, Willson, Toilolo and Michael Roberts all have fresh chances to emerge in 2018. That’s something none of them have had before.

Here is Jones on life with four young kids: We don’t have anything hanging up because we’re always throwing balls around the house. We don’t have any paintings, nothing. The Authentic Cam Ward Jersey TV is probably the only thing we can break and that’s just how it’s always been. We throw footballs in the living room. You have limits everywhere in life, but there’s no limits in the house.

The Eagles (90) are far and away the best team in the video game named for former Super Bowl head coach and NFL television analyst John Madden. The Patriots (84) lead the AFC field.

From a Giants standpoint, Odell Beckham was ranked a 94, which is No. 3 among wide receivers, behind Antonio Brown (99) and Julio Jones (96) but ahead of DeAndre Hopkins (93) and A.J. Green. Beckham missed the final 11 games of last season with a broken ankle.

Beckham and nose tackle Damon Harrison (94) are the Giants’ highest-rated players, followed by cornerback Janoris Jenkins (88).

Rookie running back Saquon Barkley considered the best rusher available in the draft in more than a decade by many experts will start out as an 80, just behind two second-year running backs also drafted in the top 10 overall in Leonard Fournette (81) and Christian McCaffrey (82).

Laken Tomlinson signs three-year extension with 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers signed guard Laken Tomlinson to a three-year contract extension on Friday that could keep him with the team through the 2021 season.

The deal is worth a max of $18 million with $10 million in guarantees, the NFL Network reports.

Tomlinson started 15 games at left guard for the Niners in 2017 after coming over in a trade with the Detroit Lions in late August.

The Cardinals answer with right-hander Miles Mikolas, who’s 1-0 with a 6.00 ERA in two career starts against the Brewers, both of which came this season.

He allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings but took the victory on April 2 at Miller Park but didn’t factor in the decision after giving up another four runs, this time over 6 1/3 innings, in a 5-4 Cardinals loss on April 9 in St. Louis.

He pounds the strike zone and uses multiple pitches, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. It’s just not every day you come across starters who can do that … and then to have durability and consistency to stay in the game as long as he has.

A victory Saturday would mark Milwaukee’s second series victory over the Cardinals in three tries this season.

Four of the five interleague series in Week 13 involve American League teams visiting National League parks, where they won’t have the luxury of the designated hitter, and two of those teams, the Cleveland Indians (Edwin Encarnacion) and New York Yankees (Giancarlo Stanton), have extremely fantasy-relevant primary DHs and play three of their six games without a DH. The Indians can always shift Encarnacion to first base and relegate Yonder Alonso to pinch-hitting duty at St. Louis’ Busch Stadium, even though they’ve gone with a straight platoon in their four previous games at an NL venue, limiting Alonso’s usefulness for the week.

Jed Lowrie (available in roughly 20 percent), whose Oakland Athletics face six right-handed starters, is a .283/.355/.513 hitter against righties this season. Enrique Hernandez (available in roughly 95 percent), whose Dodgers face four left-handed starters, has .225 isolated power against left-handers while starting every game against a lefty starter this season. Jurickson Profar (available in roughly 45 percent), whose Texas Rangers face three left-handed starters, has started 24 consecutive games and is a .254/.333/.537 hitter against lefties this season.

Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz Jersey qualifies for U.S. Senior Open

Hall of Fame pitcher and current MLB analyst John Smoltz qualified for the U.S. Senior Open on Thursday during a qualifying event in Georgia.
Men's Authentic Majestic Tim Anderson Black Jersey - #7 MLB Chicago White Sox
Smoltz, 51, renewed his closer mentality to win a three-man playoff at the 18-hole event to claim the third and final qualifying spot.

His love for golf has been well-documented in recent years as he revealed last year he and fellow Hall of Fame pitchers Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux once played 73 of the top-100 courses in the nation during a single season while they were members of the Braves.

What happened to Bridgewater is simply Johnny Cueto Authentic Jersey beyond the pale of comprehension or fairness. Because he crumpled in a heap during a non-contact 11-on-11 drill. And just like that, a rising star had fallen.

On this first day of Jets minicamp, I asked why his eyes flooded with tears on the day he had made it back. He smiled. Which he does a lot.

This game means a lot to me, Bridgewater said. I’ve been playing football since I was 5 years old, and … it brought tears to my eyes because it showed me that you’re never out of it. You’re never out of the fight.

Winslow was also briefly jailed last week for suspicion of burglary. A neighbor who saw him walking into a residence confronted him and called police, and he was arrested shortly after driving off.

All of the incidents happened in the San Diego area, where Winslow grew up and where his father was a Hall of Fame tight end for the Chargers. Winslow II was Jonathan Villar Womens Jersey the sixth overall pick in the 2004 NFL draft and played five years for the Browns, three for the Buccaneers and had brief stints with the Seahawks, Patriots and Jets.

He then became obsessed with missed opportunities in sports-fan fashion. I had this idea I called ‘Pitz.’ What do you do when your team is winning? Your hands go up. That’s prime real estate. Why are there no logos there?

Fallon called his agent, who set up a meeting, and voila — a line called Hands High (a more diplomatic take on Pitz) was born. I had to go and meet with the NBA, the NHL, the NFL, do all these business meetings and pitch my idea. They all got on board! Again, giddily incredulous.

Browns sign former No. 2 pick Greg Robinson Jersey

The Browns are looking to bolster their offensive line and bringing in a former top draft pick to do so.
Women's Tampa Bay Lightning #52 Callan Foote Adidas Ash Backer T-Shirt NHL Jersey
The team announced Wednesday that it signed former Rams and Lions offensive lineman Greg Robinson. In a corresponding move to make space for Robinson on the 90-man roster, the team also announced the release of 2017 fifth-round pick Rod Johnson.

For now? With the clubhouse almost completely cleared out, in a moment of unexpected vulnerability Davis admits that he’s tired, that he doesn’t want to think about baseball. He just wants to be and maybe enjoy the moment with a good scotch.

Plus, he has someone in Durham he wants to thank.

The police then put Winslow under surveillance after his June 7 arrest which led to a slew of charges against the 2004 first-round pick.

According to NBC San Diego, the San Diego County Sheriff’s department said Thursday Winslow has been charged with kidnapping and rape in addition to first-degree burglary.

Winslow allegedly lured a 54-year-old hitchhiker into his Hummer and raped her March 17. Then in Grant Hill Jersey May he allegedly picked up a 59-year-old woman and raped her as well.

The 34-year-old’s lawyer denied the alleged incidents ever happened to the New York Post Saturday.

Of course not, Brian Watkins said when asked if the charges were true. He didn’t do these things.

Winslow’s family released a statement Friday.

MLB’s silence to this point is a sign another contradiction won’t be coming.

Molina was Isa Abdul-Quddus Womens Jersey one of the hottest hitters in baseball through April, but missed a month with a traumatic hematoma in his groin. He was slashing.272/.292/.456 with six home runs and 17 RBI through 30 games before the injury.

Giants G.M. Dave Gettleman to begin treatment for lymphoma

The Giants are suddenly faced with a struggle far more important than Odell Beckham Jr.’s contract status.

If the President wants to continue to look for ways to hurt the NFL (whether because of the anthem issue or the failure or the USFL or the fact that the NFL never wanted him in the club), the easiest approach would be to attack the league’s broadcast antitrust exemption. This, of course, would require the President to rally enough support in Congress to overturn a law that gives the league the ability to market the 32 teams’ TV rights as one block, preventing (for example), NBC from buying all Cowboys home games and CBS buying all Patriots home games and no one offering all that much for the home games of certain teams that really don’t need to be named because we, and they, know who they are.

The fact that he has passed many, many tests is irrelevant; it’s no different, frankly, than a first-time bank robber saying, I had previously gone many, many days without robbing a bank. It takes only one positive test to trigger a four-game suspension, and it doesn’t matter if it happens in Year One or Year 20 of a player’s career.

Maybe Edelman is trying to imply that he was due for a false positive. Regardless, he’ll need something more than a vague suggestion that the sample was erroneously tested as positive in order to avoid the suspension. The PED policy operates under the concept of strict liability. A positive test results in a four-game suspension, no questions asked.

Absent something like proof of a flaw in the collection process or interruption of the chain of custody, the chances of winning on appeal are slim. And nothing from Edelman’s statement suggests that he has a defense that will hold water.

Gregory Polanco Jersey 3-run triple in the 6th inning pads Pittsburgh’s lead over Chicago.

Although reluctant to go on the disabled list two weeks ago, Ivan Nova had to concede Sunday that the break was a great benefit.
(Oakland Raiders John Matuszak Limited Nike Men's Black Jersey) NFL Home #72 Vapor Untouchable
Josh Harrison led off the game with a home run and Gregory Polanco hit a bases-loaded Mike Matheny Womens Jersey triple, leading Nova and the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Chicago Cubs 7-1.

German achieved better command of his Lamar Miller Jersey fastball en route to striking out nine batters in his final five innings, retiring 11 of the last 12 men he faced. The right-hander had his most swing-and-miss success with the fastball, recording 19 total whiffs, nine of those coming off his four-seamer.

He didn’t buckle, Boone said. In a big series and a big deal and he goes out there and really scuffles and doesn’t blink.

At the Spring League Meeting two weeks ago, the NFL enacted a national anthem policy for 2018 that requires players and league personnel on the sideline to stand but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they don’t want to stand.

Under the change approved by team owners, individual clubs have the power to set their own policies to ensure the anthem is being respected during any on-field action. If a player chooses to protest on the sideline, the NFL will fine the team. The player also could be fined by his team.

Jenkins and Long were among the players who expressed displeasure with the policy.

What NFL owners did today was thwart the players’ constitutional rights to express themselves and use our platform to draw attention to social injustices like racial inequality in our country. Everyone loses when voices get stifled, Jenkins said.

Deshaun Watson, J.J. Watt Jersey injury updates: Texans stars expected to be healthy for training camp, report says

Texans stars J.J. Watt and Deshaun Watson are expected to be healthy for the start of training camp, according to NFL Media.
Men's Reebok Colorado Avalanche #20 Ben Smith Authentic Burgundy Red Home NHL Jersey
The report said both have progressed so well in their physical rehab they’re not expected to begin camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

The White Sox ended a six-game skid against the Red Sox. Jace Fry Kyle Beckerman Jersey and Nate Jones each pitched a scoreless inning, and Joakim Soria earned his seventh save. Chicago has won three of four.

Sale allowed six hits and one walk. He also carried a shutout into the seventh, when Smith led off with a blooper down the right field line that landed fair, then bounced into the stands. He has three straight decisions for the first time dropping four in a row in July 2016 while still with the White Sox.

He was on tonight. With a guy like him, you’ve just got to bear down, said Thompson, who spoke with one eye on the television as his brother, Klay, and the Golden State Warriors played Cleveland in the NBA Finals. He was really good tonight. Dylan was just as good, so we were able to scratch away one and come away with a win.

Covey allowed three hits and struck out seven, one below his season high, in his first start against the Red Sox. He pitched into the seventh before Bogaerts hit a leadoff single and Fry came on in relief for Chicago.

Arizona reliever Braden Shipley hit Josh Harrison in the top of the seventh inning after Musgrove hit Lamb in the fourth and John Ryan Murphy in the sixth. Arizona closer Brad Boxberger hit Sean Rodriguez in the ninth.

It is nothing more than protecting your teammates, Musgrove said. That is baseball and how the game is played. If you are willing to Brandon Bollig Authentic Jersey go out and hit somebody you have to be willing to deal with might come with that. That is how I was raised to play the game.

Arizona right-hander Clay Buchholz will make his fifth start of the season Tuesday, opposing right-hander Trevor Williams in the second game of the series. The Pirates have lost seven series in a row and are 6-17 since going a season-high nine games over .500 in mid-May.

You play the game and you protect your teammates, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said.

Buffalo Bills release center Eric Wood Jersey

Buffalo Bills release center Eric Wood More ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Eric Wood can finally announce he’s retiring after the Buffalo Bills released the veteran center in a move considered a formality after he was diagnosed with a career-ending neck injury in January. The NFL transactions list on Thursday listed the Bills reaching an injury settlement and releasing Wood under the designation: Termination of vested veteran.
Youth Nike New Orleans Saints #53 A.J. Klein Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
The decision by the Bills ends a lengthy waiting period for the team and Wood. By waiting until Thursday, the Bills limited the effect the player’s remaining bonus money will have on their salary cap.

Wallace said he talked to Agholor two years ago after a game between the Eagles and Baltimore Ravens, Wallace’s former team. Agholor had admitted a few weeks before that game that he had lost confidence, which led to a one-game benching.

It’s their right,the 11th-year defensive end added of league owners, but it’s a clumsy rule. They didn’t involve the players. You can say what you want about the (collective bargaining agreement) and what we bargained, but with the optics of everything going on right now, in the midst of denying some people employment over this very issue, you’d think they would have been a little more careful.

As Long spoke, Jenkins began holding court a few dozen feet away. Although the veteran safety co-founded the Players Coalition that has partnered with the NFL on a $90 million initiative to address social issues, he still hard harsh words for the Rigoberto Sanchez Womens Jersey decision makers behind the resolution.

Jenkins and Long were in the room with several owners last fall during a summit at league headquarters, when seemingly significant progress was made in the movement ignited by still-unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protests against police brutality and other social inequities challenging African-Americans.

After naming a handful of owners – including Philadelphia’s Jeffrey Lurie – who publicly supported the players’ causes, Jenkins shook his head and added of the policy, To make a decision like that lacks the Maxime Lagace Jersey empathy, the sympathy and context the players were looking for.
