Report: Dolphins will release Ndamukong Suh

Limited Kids Duron Harmon Jersey
It looks like the pool of free agent defensive tackles is going to be getting a big addition.

Jeff Darlington of ESPN reports that the Dolphins Authentic Markus Wheaton Jersey will release Ndamukong Suh and that the move could come as early as Monday. The possibility that Miami would move in that direction is one that’s been discussed often since the end of the regular season and a report last week indicated the team was still uncertain about what they planned to do.

Not so.

Lynch looks set to be coach Jon Gruden’s lead back. After taking a year off, Beast Mode took some time to get churning in 2017, but wrecked defenders down the stretch of the season. Lynch finished just 10 yards shy of leading the league in rushing over the final five weeks, averaging 5.2 yards per carry from Week 13 through Week 17.

Gruden said last month he needs full-time Lynch to succeed in 2018. The new contract ensures the glowing words from the coach weren’t hot air.

McDougald replaced Kam Chancellor in the starting lineup last year when Chancellor was lost with a neck injury. Considering the Seahawks aren’t sure whether Chancellor will (or whether they want him to) play again, keeping McDougald around is solid insurance.

A free agent pickup from the Buccaneers prior to last season, McDougald would have been an unrestricted free agent later this week.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the question has come up in the past, because the league realizes the value of televising the workouts at a time when more people are watching.

Given the busy schedule for the players who attend the Combine, moving the workouts to the evening hours would require a complete restructuring of their activities, with the 15-minute speed-dating interviews moving to the morning or afternoon hours, among other changes. As the source explained it, moving to workouts to the evening likely would extend the Combine by a day.

This won’t stop the league office from continuing to periodically push the idea, because prime-time workouts on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night (for example) would definitely generate bigger TV numbers than morning and early afternoon sessions.

Giants moving Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to safety

A 10-year NFL veteran, Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, played in 15 games this past season. The only game he missed was in Denver Barry Sanders Jersey as he was suspended after he stormed off the field during a loss to the Chargers, then walked out of the team facility after then-coach Ben McAdoo informed him he would not be playing the following week. He is in the final year of a five-year, $35 million contract and is on the books for a salary of $6.48 million with a salary cap hit of $8.5 million. If the Giants cut him, they save $5.1 on the cap. They still could approach him about a cut in pay.

Although Rodgers-Cromartie at times infuriated previous coaching regimes by asking out of games, he has been reliable, playing in 61 of a possible 64 games since coming to the Giants.

Landon Collins is established as the strong safety, but Darian Thompson struggled in 2017 at free safety, and that is where Rodgers-Cromartie will compete for a starting spot.

Back there you can see that ball a whole lot better, Rodgers-Cromartie said. Ain’t that much responsibility back there at free safety, you’re just back here controlling.

No sir.

No sir, not that I know of, Jackson said when asked if the report was accurate. I’m not going to be a wide receiver at all. I’m a quarterback.

That’s crazy. I thought I did a good job at quarterback, Jackson said with a chuckle. They say what they want to say. I’m here now. I’m at the combine. I’m happy to be here. I just have to show off my ability, yes sir.

Kids Javon Hargrave Jersey Jackson was extremely likeable in his 15-minute interview with reporters. If he can be the same way with teams at the combine, there will be teams that are intrigued by him.

When teams ask why they should draft him, Jackson has a ready answer.
Limited Womens Jaleel Johnson Jersey

He had several plays where he would whup an offensive lineman or two, and then barely miss taking the quarterback down.

Even on most of those plays Vea still left a path of destruction and chaos in his wake that made it easy for one of his teammates to clean up the mess and get the sack after he missed.

On top of that Vea had six other pressures where he forced the opposing quarterback into an incompletion because he was bearing down on them with bad intentions.

He was better than those numbers indicated, given that Grant caught 70.3 percent of the passes thrown to him despite the fact that his average target came 9.6 yards downfield.

The only wideouts in the league with 50 targets or more who caught a higher percentage of their passes while picking up their average target further downfield were Allen Hurns, Michael Thomas, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Tyreek Hill and Ted Ginn.

It would hardly have been a surprise to see Grant develop a modest market, but in a league in which Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola just came up with significant multiyear deals, the Ravens had to pay Grant like he had been a starter for years in Washington.

The Jets also addressed one of their other major needs by signing Long to a four-year deal worth $28 million. Wesley Johnson was the starting center last season as the replacement for Nick Mangold, but struggled at times and is now a free agent. Long was a third-round draft pick out of Nebraska in 2014 and played both center and guard for the Redskins. He became Washington’s starter at center early in the 2016 season after a season-ending injury to Kory Lichtensteiger. ”

It took a lot of adjustment physically and mentally,” Long said. ”

It’s definitely different having the ball in your hands. In the meeting rooms is where the big changes came because I grew so much mentally as a player when I had to learn the center position. Ever since then, I’ve been able to build on a solid foundation. I’m excited. I think my best ball is yet to come at that position.”patriots_008

Aaron Judge not eligible for arbitration, to earn $622K

Aaron Judge, the American League Rookie of the Year, will earn $622,300 in the major leagues as part of his one-year contract with the New York Yankees.

Judge, who led the AL with 52 home runs, is not eligible for salary arbitration until after the 2019 season. He agreed to a split contract in which his salary would drop to $272,250 in the unlikely event he is sent back to the minors.

New York uses a scale based on service time for its players not eligible for arbitration.

Right now parents in Moscow and she makes it, Ovechkin said. It’s kind of nice when someone from your family is in the stands.

Ovechkin got two lengthy standing ovations from the crowd that has been dazzled by his accomplishments since he made his debut in 2005. It was of little surprise he delivered in what was a showdown with another fellow 40-goal scorer in Laine, who idolized Ovechkin growing up.

I was pretty close watching it, Laine said of Ovechkin’s goal 3:53 into the second period. I was in a good spot — just behind him. I was there when he made history, so I can maybe watch that someday and show that I was there getting the minus on the ice.

Kuznetsov got his 21st of the season on a breakaway 4:11 into overtime. He joked that Ovechkin scoring 600 was a free meal for him and was thrilled to put a positive Womens Torrey Smith Jersey capper on the night for Washington.

I didn’t want to get too political, he said. That wasn’t what it was about at the time. I wanted to get my message across. That wasn’t the purpose. At the same time, something needs to be done. The bill, that’s a huge step in the right direction. Hopefully there will be more in the future. The focus needs to be keeping our kids safe.

Miami’s front office, concerned for their player’s future as a father and a husband, not a basketball forward, told him they could no longer risk putting him on the court.

Just like that, it was over. No more championship trophies to hoist, no more All-Star teams to make, no more gold medals or endorsements or private jet excursions with the guys. Bosh retreated home to his wife, Adrienne, and their four small children, plunked himself on his leather sofa and asked aloud, What the hell just happened?

It’s pretty much like cruising along, going 150 miles an hour in your Porsche — and then you fall into a hole, Bosh says.

I watch the whole small ball thing and say, ‘Damn, I worked my whole career to play in an environment like this. These are my skills. These are my moves.’ But I can’t use them.

NFL free agency: Giants primed for worthy splurge on Andrew Norwell

The Giants have Landon Collins at strong safety, but Darian Thompson struggled at free safety last season. They were going to move Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie to the position before they released him.
Women's Replica Majestic Sean Rodriguez Pink Jersey - #3 MLB Pittsburgh Pirates Cool Base Fashion
Ross Cockrell is a good place to start as a reasonable re-sign coming off a strong first season with the team. For help from other teams, the Eagles’ Patrick Robinson would be an excellent get for the slot and will be hotly pursued. The Jaguars’ Aaron Colvin and the Bills’ Nickell Robey-Coleman should also be considered inside.

The Cardinals in 2017 got an exceptional half-season from former Packers Pro Bowler Tramon Williams. Because of that play, Bettcher’s presence and Gettleman’s modus operandi, Williams can make for a good bargain on the outside, even as he turns 35.

The Giants don’t have the cap room they did in 2016 when they went nuts with Harrison, Vernon and Jenkins to improve their defense, leading to a wild-card playoff berth. This year, other than a spectacular move on offense, D.J. Hayden Authentic Jersey it will be Gettleman cleaning up the edges so the team is well aligned for the draft.

It’s a massive increase for Brate, 26, who made $690,000 in base salary for 2017.

Brate became Tampa Bay’s starter in 2015 after the team released Austin Seferian-Jenkins. In 2016, he led league tight ends in touchdowns scored (eight) and added six last season.
Game Youth Kevin Huber Jersey
He also hauled in 105 passes for 1,251 yards over the past two seasons.

Brate is the second Buccaneer to be locked up with a huge deal in recent days. Receiver Mike Evans agreed to a five-year, $82.5-million extension Friday.

Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins already made his slightly aggressive pitch for Graham on Instagram, teasing Texans fans with how good Graham would look in their uniform. Hopkins is right to think this way; tight end is a bigger need for Houston than it might seem.

The job requires Cunningham to be on the road for 17-to-20 days a month.

At first, he needed a scooter to get around and found it difficult to board a plane. Now he moves with ease. He started taking OrangeTheory high-interval classes on the road because he was bored of working out alone. He can complete the treadmill segments just fine but prefers to row because it’s less pounding on his legs. Really, I can do anything, it’s just a little bit of adaptations I throw in there, he said. My favorite is the Assault bike. I take my leg off and can do it with just one leg.

The Pelicans (27-21) are currently sixth in a tight West race, three-and-a-half games behind the third-place Spurs (32-19) and three games ahead of the ninth-place Clippers (24-24). FiveThirtyEight’s latest projection gives the Pelicans an 89 percent chance of making the playoffs, but that’s not accounting for Cousins’ injury, which certainly lowers those odds. Still, New Orleans is looking to reach the postseason, and this loss won’t change those plans.

You’ve just got to take it on the head, Smith said of the call. It is what it is.
Authentic Womens Markus Golden Jersey
Nickell Robey-Coleman Kids Jersey Smith’s rookie season has been one filled with learning experiences like that. Although Smith was one of the most buzzed-about prospects in the lead-up to the draft and following Summer League, he’s been relegated to an afterthought through no fault of his own. Being part of one of the most loaded rookie classes in years means having to compete for attention with the likes of Jayson Tatum, Donovan Mitchell, Lauri Markkanen and the never-ending Ball family circus.

Smith may have the endorsement of LeBron James, who chastised the Knicks earlier in the season for not drafting him, but the Mavericks are a 16-win team, just two games ahead of the Kings for the worst record in the Western Conference, without much else to draw Dirk Nowitzki Jersey casual fan interest besides what could be Dirk Nowitzki’s farewell tour.

VM: I like interviewing my buddies. Like Jalen Ramsey, Odell [Beckham Jr.]. The interview with Odell was fun. But I think Keegan-Michael Key was probably the best one. He has so much energy. I’ve always been on the other side of interviews, sitting there the way I am now, as you’re asking me questions and I answer. But on the other side it’s really … it’s hard work.

Kobe Bryant’s ‘Dear Basketball’ short film nominated for Oscar

Kobe Bryant has seemingly opened the door to another successful career after basketball.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday that the retired Lakers legend’s short film, “Dear Basketball,” is one of five nominees for this year’s Best Animated Short award.

Peters: I’m going with the Penguins, too. I think they’ll want to head into the postseason on a high note, so don’t look at them to let off the gas pedal too much. The desire to win a third straight Cup, previously unthinkable in the salary-cap era, is palpable for this team. As Brassard settles in over these next few weeks, I’d expect them only to get stronger. Plus Evgeni Malkin has a chance to win the Art Ross (and maybe even the Hart), which adds a little extra motivation for a player who is already playing exceptionally well.

Arledge: Philadelphia is a little more balanced, while Pittsburgh has relied too heavily on scoring. Goalie Matt Murray has been out for two weeks with a concussion, but honestly, he has been less than impressive even when healthy this season.

It’s hard to conjure up a scenario where Bridges fully fails. If the defense doesn’t hold up and his 3-point percentage drops, it’s a potential outcome, but he’s more likely a high-floor talent with the upside of an elite NBA role player, even if the creation skill never comes along.

A deeper dive shows that the real culprit behind the change might have been the NBPA. The three big reasons why the draft won’t be televised, according to Stein:

1) The league does not want to risk embarrassing the last player chosen — or anyone else.

2) The league does not want to put the captains in a position where they might upset teammates by passing over them.

3) The players’ union objected. The union, presumably with considerable input from player agents, is the faction that actually put up the most resistance to letting all this play out in public. Some All-Stars want the draft televised, but some don’t. So the league acquiesced.

Voracek netted his 15th of the season 2:07 into the period to tie it at 1. Nolan Patrick caused a turnover with strong backchecking, passed to Voracek and his shot from the side boards deflected off Pittsburgh’s Derick Brassard and past Tristan Jarry.

Heartbroken Dirk Nowitzki ‘disgusted’ by Mavs workplace allegations

Dirk Nowitzki, the face of a franchise that has embarrassed him, spoke out Wednesday about allegations of sexual harassment in the Mavericks workplace.
Men's Limited Giorgio Tavecchio Black Jersey: Player Name & Number Tank Top #2 NFL Oakland Raiders Nike
A 20-year NBA veteran, all with a Mavs organization he considers a second family, said after practice in Los Angeles that he’s happy Sports Illustrated’s story broke, alleging improper office behavior by former team president Terdema Ussery and at least one other former Mavs employee.

I’m grateful we live in a place and time where people have the courage to speak up about things like this, he said. I also have a 13-year-old daughter, and I want her to know that it’s both brave and safe to speak out. And that’s very important to me, and it should Cory Schneider Authentic Jersey be important to everybody.

When it comes to anything involving the Mavericks, Mark Cuban is a strong believer in extreme ownership, extreme accountability. And he’s highly motivated to get this resolved in an expeditious but thorough manner. No steps will be skipped.

Things happen for a reason. Any problem or crisis presents an opportunity and this is an opportunity for us to get something fixed.

Game Mens Wayne Gallman Jersey Cromartie spent his first four seasons with the Chargers, making the playoffs each year. He then joined the Jets and reached the AFC Championship Game with them in 2010, his first of four straight seasons as a starter in Rex Ryan’s defense.

He spent 2014 with Arizona and returned to the Jets in 2015. He finished his career with 31 interceptions, 120 passes defended, 2 forced fumbles and 420 tackles.

Following the introduction of the rookie salary cap in advance of the 1995 draft ‘ which drastically reduced the incentive for prospects to enter the league as polished products who could command contracts on the order of Glenn Robinson (10 years, $112 million in 2017 dollars) ‘ Garnett filed for early entry and became the No. 5 overall pick.

His eventual success made the practice more common, enough so that by the time the age limit was introduced there had been 40 players to enter the draft directly out of high school. Nearly all of those players ranked with the elite prospects in their high school classes. Seven were rated the No. 1 prospect in their respective classes.

Only nine of the preps-to-pros prospects were eventually chosen to participate in at least one NBA All-Star Game.

As much as the Broncos might want to lock into former Redskins starter Kirk Cousins, it will come with too much financial stress.

Denzel Perryman Jersey
Denver wants to get much better at QB, as coach Vance Joseph put it at the Combine, but it might need to settle for an athletic passer who can be more complementary to their running game and defense to replace the ugly, three-headed monster of Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch.
Youth Stephen Strasburg Authentic Green Majestic Jersey: MLB Washington Nationals #37 Salute to Service
Siemian is being shopped via Brandon Williams Womens Jersey trade before a potential cut. Osweiler is already a free agent. Lynch is under his cheap rookie contract for two more years, so it makes sense to keep him around as a developmental backup without the pressure to compete for No. 1 for a third straight offseason.

Larry Nance Jr, Cleveland Cavaliers, 68.7 percent available: Nance has scored double-digit points with at least seven rebounds in three of his past four, and four of his past six games. He’s not a sure thing in any given game, but for as long as Kevin Love is out, he projects as a solid producer over a four-game week.

Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat, 50.6 percent available: Wade followed up a throwback 27-point explosion on Tuesday with another 25-point effort on Thursday. The Heat are dealing with injuries to their backcourt, most recently to Tyler Johnson (again), and if Wade’s body can handle the stress, he has the opportunity to score some points moving forward.

Earl Watford Jersey Pascal Siakam, Toronto Raptors, 96.1 percent available: Siakam has turned in four straight strong games, averaging 14.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 combined blocks/steals during that stretch.

The Colts’ best bet in free agency may be the Falcons’ Adrian Clayborn, who was effective as a situational pass-rusher last season. The lack of mid-career impact defensive ends in free agency is also the reason Indianapolis in many mock drafts selects N.C. State’s Bradley Chubb at No. 3 overall instead of Barkley or Nelson.

Like the 3-cone drill, the shuttle drill showcases a player’s stop-start, change of direction and in-space explosiveness. Participants stand at the starting line with a cone five yards away on both sides. Players sprint to a cone on one side, then sprint 10 yards to the opposite cone before running back to the initial starting point. The drill is also called the 5-10-5.

This differs from the 3-cone drill in its value because it requires players to reach a point, stop and then change directions as they accelerate again. The ability to change speeds and get to a top speed quickly is important for running backs, receivers and defensive backs, as the best players need to thrive when not in full stride.

Individual drills can be telling for certain positions, but most NFL teams have found ways to combine all of the testing results into one composite score that can reflect a player’s athleticism.

Answers to Broncos GM John Elway’s toughest test are in NFL Draft

Elway and his scouts also need to address an aging wide receiver corps with top targets Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders both 30 with a lot of mileage. An infusion of youth is needed there, along with more talent at tight end and along the offensive line.

This is a challenging time for the Broncos and their GM who were all spoiled by the great run from 2012-15. Now it’s what-have-you-done-for-me-lately time in Denver.

A legendary QB-turned-GM’s future employment could be dependent on his making the right calls over the next couple months, starting with quarterback.

We always talk about offensive linemen protecting the quarterback. I always thought it was the opposite. I always thought quarterbacks protected their offensive lines, Colinsworth says. I think Brady can innately feel when it’s time. Generally, what I think he does, early in drives, early in the game, he’s never holding the ball. He’s just not. He’s not going to give you a chance when he’s fresh to come and get him. But as the drive continues, and they’ve trapped you on the field, and they’ve no-huddled you, and they’ve done all that stuff, now he’s going to hold the ball.

Wilson is more succinct: You can watch the tape, you can watch the video, you can see the things that create the matchup issues. The thing is, everybody’s got good players.
Alex Smith Elite Jersey
Let’s see, last year at this time he had retired, Carroll said jokingly, in reference to the stir Thomas caused when he mentioned the possibility of retiring after he broke his leg in December 2016. I’m not sure where to put that right now. Earl and I have talked about some stuff. That specifically was not very much on the top of our discussion. He’s a great competitor he wants to take it as far as he can and I admire the heck out of him.”

Reshad Jones Mens Jersey Carroll hedged when asked if the Seahawks are optimistic about re-signing tight end Jimmy Graham, one of Womens Tavon Young Jersey the team’s 16 unrestricted free agents.

I hope so, Carroll said. I’d love to keep him. We love Jimmy, we love what he did. He had a very effective year for us last year. We’d love to have him back. We’ll see how it goes and see how the competition is for him.

The Vikings coach later followed up in his second media session at the NFL scouting combine with exactly what’s at stake if Minnesota doesn’t nail this crucial decision.

It’s important for myself and [general manager] Rick [Spielman] and the organization to pick the right guy that is going to help us continue to move forward, Zimmer said, before quipping: If we don’t do that, then I’ll probably be fired.
