In the short term, it seems logical to think Jones will remain the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart. But (most) teams don’t spend third-round picks on players they want buried at No. 3, meaning Rudolph will challenge for Jones’ job fairly soon, and Roethlisberger’s after that.

L.C. Greenwood Elite Jersey The window for Jones to make an impact is closing — quickly.

That’s inspired Jones to be as prepared as possible to pull a Keystone State stunner in the same vein as Philadelphia Eagles backup hero Nick Foles.

That would be the goal, Jones said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Shoot, man, go on a run like that, be Super Bowl MVP!

It falls in the same line as other wishful thinking: Make the winning shot at the buzzer in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Hit a walk-off home run in the World Series. But what’s different here is Pittsburgh is assembled to Jared Dudley Jersey contend now. This goes from dream to possibility with one unfortunate injury.

Lions claim rookie receiver Chris Lacy off waivers

The Lions claimed rookie receiver Chris Lacy off waivers from the Patriots, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Lacy, 22, signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State on May 11.

He caught 63 passes for 920 yards and five touchdowns in 32 college games. Lacy also returned six kickoffs for 97 return yards.

The single, I kind of looked over at him just to see if he’d smile and think that bloop single was funny at all. He didn’t, Crawford said. “The homer, I didn’t look at him at all.”

The shortstop doesn’t plan to bring it up with Cole when the families meet up in the offseason.

“It’s frustrating, especially coming from Nebraska where I was the guy, I knew I was going to get the ball at least 20 times a game,” Abdullah said. “For me, it’s not necessarily getting a certain number of touches. It’s getting meaningful touches…That’s where it gets kind of frustrating.”

Abdullah averaged 3.3 yards per carry in 2017 but scored a career-high four touchdowns. He said it was difficult for him to find a rhythm.

“The coaches, I trust their game plan, they’re much smarter than me,” Abdullah said. “But it’s hard when I come in, I get a carry and break it for about 10 yards, then I come out for about three plays, then I’ve got to come in to pass protect, then I don’t get my next carry until, like, the next quarter.”

Abdullah, who has totaled 1,250 rushing yards in 32 career games, said he has appreciated his time with the Lions.ravens_070

Matt Nagy: Allen Robinson doing everything we want him to do

The Bears signed wide receiver Allen Robinson to a three-year contract this offseason despite the torn ACL he suffered while with the Jaguars last September and coach Matt Nagy said on Wednesday that there’s been no sign that their confidence in his recovery will backfire on them.

Robinson isn’t participating in OTAs this week, but Nagy sounded some encouraging notes about the progress he’s making on his way back to full speed.

Morales released a Message to the Community video Tuesday, saying he will stand by officers who act right but will admit error when officers act wrong.

So if there’s ever an incident where one of our members makes a mistake, unnecessarily escalating a situation, I’m going to be honest and transparent Jay Bromley Youth jersey about it, he said.

Shanahan: No. I really do believe that there are different people meant to be with an organization for different stages of its development. I also think that although our organization isn’t where we want it to be, we’ve had some success. And because of that, different organizations want to approach your people. That’s never going to end. If certain people are doing well, you’re going to be approached. If someone has something better to offer, then you’re going to see people move on, unless you’re willing to give that person the ultimate job. And the general manager job can only go to one person, so for me it was about picking the right person now, and going forward.

Jay was not involved in any physical altercations, Melanie Wadden, Ajayi’s publicst, told Beasley in an email.

Further, Wadden said Ajayi was a guest, not the renter, and the owner attempted to get the group to pay cash outside of Airbnb. She added that the owner was on-site during the group’s entire stay.

The entire group voluntarily left the property several days early 鈥?no security or police were ever involved or on-site, Wadden said. They filed a complaint against the owner through Airbnb back in February that included screenshots of the owner asking for cash and trying to communicate outside of their platform [against Airbnb policy].

Amari Cooper ready to be focal point of Raiders offense

Jon Gruden said at the NFL Scouting Combine in February that he wants Amari Cooper to be the focal point of the Raiders’ passing game. The fourth-year receiver wants to be just that.
Game Youth Alex Killorn Jersey Youth New York Islanders #1 Thomas Greiss Reebok Black Third Premier NHL Jersey
It was cool, Cooper said, via Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle. Obviously, as a receiver, you want to go out there and make plays for your team to win. So for him to say that, it really meant a lot to me. I’m just ready to come out and work and prove that I deserve to have those opportunities.

Cooper left Tuesday’s practice early with what coach Jon Gruden called a twing in his hamstring. Injuries (and drops) hurt him last season when he caught only 48 passes for 680 yards.

Dietrich hit a two-run homer in the eighth.

Mets: C Devin Mesoraco (bruised left elbow) flied out as a pinch-hitter and stayed in the game. … It hasn’t been determined whether LF Yoenis Cespedes (hip flexor) will need any rehab games, Callaway said. … CF Juan Lagares (toe) will have season-ending surgery Thursday. … C Kevin Plawecki (broken hand) and RHP Hansel Robles (sprained knee) will start rehab assignments Thursday with Triple-A Las Vegas.

I do think there’s a great team right now, Tepper said. And the biggest thing I can do . . . is that I have a great appreciation for how stupid I am, and sometimes it’s better to do nothing than to do something. I think you want to be very careful and move very carefully when you do anything. . . .

I’m trying to determine the development I want to have in the community. The more development there is in the community, that might make it more difficult to have minority partners. If you want to have, for instance, an MLS team or something like that 鈥?which might some sense if you are in fact in Charlotte 鈥?or you do other things, I’m just trying to determine that in the next six weeks.

If I’m moving someplace and we’re doing this in Carolina, the first thing I care about is winning. The second thing I care about is winning. And the third thing I care about is, . . . you guys are smart. That’s on and off the field. That includes the charity aspect, the community aspect and how we make a community better. You win in Kavon Frazier Jersey a lot of ways, and I don’t like to lose in any way.

When a man amasses more than an estimated $10 billion dollars, his win-loss record in business matters figures to be pretty good. And while taking over a team that’s gone 192-192-1 (including playoffs) in Richardson’s 23 years in charge, that might be a welcome change.

Giants rookie minicamp sets stage for roster battle at biggest position of need

The Giants concluded a three-day rookie minicamp on Sunday, and it set the stage for an exciting roster battle to watch at one of the team’s biggest positions of need.
Youth Zach Parise Premier Green Reebok Jersey: NHL Minnesota Wild #11 Third
Johnny Townsend Authentic Jersey After passing on taking a cornerback during the 2018 NFL Draft, the Giants signed Penn State’s Grant Haley and Georgia’s Aaron Davis as undrafted rookie free agents, and there’s a chance that both could make the 53-man roster but they certainly will be battling throughout the course of the spring, summer and preseason.

Haley, as NJ Advance Media reported on Saturday, signed a $100,000.00 guaranteed contract which included a $25,000 signing bonus, after spending the last three seasons as Penn State’s starting nickel cornerback and a former captain of the Nittany Lions’ defense.

Pryor uniquely, at least in part, understands Mailata’s predicament. Pryor didn’t start playing football until high school, before he knew it he was already playing varsity.

O. J. Simpson Mens Jersey He couldn’t imagine jumping in at this stage, in the NFL, like Mailata has, though.

That would be hard, Pryor said. Especially coming from rugby. He’s coming Calle Rosen Womens Jersey from running the ball and tackling to now you gotta defend and block. I feel like that’s really hard to do. But he has the athletic ability and capability of doing it.

Mailata seems to聽understand that being drafted brings no guarantee of making the roster. Mailata looks and moves like an NFL player, but he’s never played football.

The victory was the Yankees’ (28-12) second straight. It allowed them to stay tied atop the American League East with the Red Sox, who beat the Blue Jays earlier in the afternoon.

The Yankees are 11-2 in May. They will be off Monday before starting a three-game set in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday. That will start an eight-game road trip that also includes stops in Kansas City and Texas.

The Yankees have won seven straight series.

Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino (6-1, 2.14 ERA) wasn’t at his best. It was plenty, though.

He gave up just a run over six innings, striking out seven and walking two. It was his fifth straight outing of at least six innings.

Sometimes, a contract nearing its expiration provides enough incentive for a breakout campaign. The Pittsburgh Steelers exercised Bud Dupree’s fifth-year option, but the team can still release him after a subpar season and save cash, barring an injury.

Giants’ Saquon Barkley is ‘most talented’ draft pick in years, Hall of Fame ex-Jets RB Curtis Martin says

Leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft, Giants rookie Saquon Barkley struck up a friendship with Curtis Martin, and said that the Jets Hall of Famer was among the running backs he’s most admired.

Judging by Martin’s comments Tuesday, the feelings seem to be mutual.

In my opinion, Martin said Tuesday at the BTIG Charity Day. He’s the most talented, from an athletic standpoint, I don’t think there’s anyone who came out this year who is more talented. Maybe in the last few years.

Barkley’s film from his collegiate career at Penn State is a highlight-reel of plays where he hurdles defenders, stops and starts on a dime, and simply blows past speedy defenders such as former USC cornerback Adoree Jackson on the way to averaging 5.7 yards per carry and scoring 43 touchdowns.

I think his character is phenomenal, Martin said. I think he’s a phenomenal young-man. I think he’ll do good things in New York. I think he’s going to do great things in the NFL. He’s definitely one of the most talented guys that I’ve seen come out of college.

The Redskins currently have a few running backs on the roster that have shown that they can have a major impact in the game as a receiver out of the backfield with Chris Thompson at the forefront of that charge.

New Orleans Saints players are beginning to deal with the realization they won’t have the team’s leading rusher, Mark Ingram, for the first four games of the 2018 season.

Following his suspension, Ingram is set to miss tilts against the Buccaneers, Falcons, Browns and Giants.

If he does have to miss games, he will be missed, defensive end Alex Okafor told Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune. You can’t replace anybody like that. He’s one of the best backs in the league. He’s dynamic, huge in the run and passing game. It’s going to be hard to cope with, but if anybody could find a way to do it, it’s going to be Sean Payton and Drew Brees. I’m sure we’ll be all right.colts_080

Enunwa spoke in Manhattan at the annual Gridiron Gala charity event, which benefits the United Way of New York City.

Enunwa had not spoken to reporters since he injured his neck last year in the preseason. The Jets are currently in the second phase of their offseason workout program. They practice for the first time this spring on May 22 — the start of organized team activities.

As Leslie Levy, a lawyer who sued the Jets and Raiders on behalf of cheerleaders, told聽the New York Times’聽Ken Belson,聽The club’s intention is to completely control the behavior of the women, even when they are not actually at their workplace. It’s an issue of power. You see a disparate treatment between the cheerleaders, and the mascots and anyone else who works for the team. I can’t think of another arena where employers exert this level of control, even when they are not at work.

She can’t think of one because in America, no such place exists.

Cheerleaders have never been seen as part of the NFL family. This is why they’ve experienced repeated incidents of maltreatment.

A.J. Green: John Ross’healthy and explosive again’

Coach Marvin Lewis recently balked at the idea that John Ross was a draft miss after a nightmare rookie season which came and went without a single catch.
NFL Torry Holt Black : #81 Los Angeles Rams Nike Name & Number Logo T-Shirt
Lewis isn’t alone in his belief that Ross is poised for a breakout campaign now that he’s spending more time on the field than in the trainer’s room.

Ross’ offseason work with former Bengals receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh has Pro Bowl wideout A.J. Green raving about last year’s No. 9 overall draft pick.

He’s got his confidence back, Green told The Sporting News. The way he’s working this offseason is unbelievable. He’s healthy and explosive again .

In Ross and oft-injured tight end Tyler Eifert, the Bengals have a pair of intriguing wild cards with the tantalizing talent to make or break Andy Dalton’s season.

Will a healthy, improved Ross unseat Brandon LaFell or Tyler Boyd for a rotation spot alongside Green?

Loyalty is a vanishing commodity. The NFL showed none to ESPN by inviting rival Fox Sports to air the annual draft next week from Arlington, Texas. ESPN hopes football fans are Womens Zach Fulton Jersey more faithful and will continue to tune in to the Worldwide Leader in Sports, which is preparing to telecast its 39th consecutive draft.

The good news for ESPN? With five or six star quarterbacks expected to go in Thursday’s first round, and the big market Giants and Jets picking No. 2 and 3, respectively, expectations are off the charts for the three-day event.

It’s almost a perfect storm for us: Big teams, big quarterbacks, Markman told Sporting News in an exclusive interview. It’s kind of fitting that it’s in Jerry’s stadium there, with how big this thing can be.

The team announced the addition of journeyman guard Mike Person for a second stint there.

When guys talk and shoot the breeze and joke around, it helps. There’s a willingness and a desire to help your fellow teammates because you feel like you’re among friends, and you’re more apt to help friends than you are to help enemies or competitors or the opposition. When Josh Tomlin had a rough first outing, all of us could go watch video on our own and try to figure out how to help instead of thinking, ‘Well, he had a rough outing, and if he does bad, there’s more chance that I’ll stay in the rotation, so I’m not going to say anything.’

Social media is full of negativity. People who appreciate it probably read a story and are like, ‘That’s really cool,’ and they go about their day. And the ones who are just on Twitter and want to get a reaction or get blocked by someone or get a tweet back, they’re the ones running their mouths. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Drafted by Philadelphia and traded to Chicago, Berwanger was more interested in business than football. He said the league didn鈥檛 pay enough.

Mark Ingram statement suggests two possible defenses for banned substance

A statement released by Mark Ingram‘s agents suggests that he will claim his suspension for violating the league’s PED policy stemmed from a legitimate medication — and also will claim that the test showing he took the medication was invalid.

The second part of the defense, that Ingram “has vigorously challenged the test results,” would seem contradictory with the first defense. If Ingram is going to claim he was using the banned substance for a therapeutic reason, then there would be no need to challenge the test results because he would readily admit that the substance was in his body. If Ingram is claiming that the test was invalid and he didn’t use the substance, then what difference does it make if he could have used it with a proper use exemption?

The arbitrator who denied Ingram’s appeal is expected to produce a full written ruling within a week. Unless there’s more to Ingram’s case than his agents’ statement suggests, it’s hard to see what grounds he would have to fight the suspension. Ingram was the leading rusher for the Saints last season but is reportedly unhappy with his contract and not planning to participate in voluntary offseason work.

“I think you’re gonna see less offensive linemen on this unit,” Saints coach Sean Payton, a member of the Competition Committee, explained during a visit to PFT Live. “I think you’re gonna see a more athletic player on this unit. I think you’re gonna have less space in the collisions, which the goal was at the beginning.”

The changes in the positioning (and possibly the composition) on the kickoff also could lead to various other unforeseen, by maybe not unwelcome, consequences.

“I’m not so sure that you’re not gonna see a handful of unique returns now when you have eight [blockers] inside that initial 15-yard zone,” Payton said. “I think there’s space and I also think there’s also opportunities that present themselves for the kicking team. Whether it’s not an onside [kick] but you know placing the ball in certain areas of the field maybe with the idea of trying to recover it.”orioles_002
