Ex-tackle Mike Adams loses 68 pounds, hopes to return to NFL at tight end

Mike Adams was a talented enough offensive tackle that the Steelers took him with a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft, and he started six games as a rookie. But his career stalled both in Pittsburgh and then in Chicago, and he was out of football last year.

But Gordon believes he’s changed personally, and he’s now prepared to help the Browns bounce back from a 0-16 season and perhaps shock the league in 2018.

Gordon feels strongly about his team, which acquired three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry and quarterback Tyrod Taylor in offseason trades.

I think we’re the best receiving corps in the league, in my opinion, already just based off of talent alone, Gordon said.

So, you put in the playbook and some guys that are hungry enough to go do it, and hopefully, we go out there and show and prove that.

We’re not short on talent at the wide receiver position at all.

Miles was set to play this season on a one-year restricted free agent contract. So the knee surgery is a big blow for him, as he prepares for free agency in 2019. His estimated recovery window means he could return in early September or early October, if all goes well.

The Jets likely will place Miles on the physically unable to perform list to begin training camp and the regular season. That is the most prudent move for them.

PUP list players must sit out the first six weeks of the regular season, at least. A team then has a five-week window during which the player can begin practicing. After the player starts practicing, there is a three-week window for activation to the 53-man roster. A team can also keep a player on the PUP list for the entire season.

Miles isn’t a legitimate candidate for short-term injured reserve. In order to be eligible for that, a player must be on a team’s final 53-man roster, at the end of training camp. And the Jets shouldn’t save a roster spot for Miles, when they can just stash him on the PUP list.

Johnny Manziel’s road to CFL stardom: Why it won’t be easy

Neither will the 20-second play clock, the 12-man defensive looks, the punts on third down nor the pre-snap motion. It’s all of it, all at once, all while Manziel is in a hurry to master this league so he can move on to the next. Most American quarterbacks need a year or more to adjust and thrive in the CFL.

Jake Bischoff Jersey NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Sunday afternoon that free agent linebacker Mychal Kendricks would sign a one-year deal with the Cleveland Browns. Soon after, Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot confirmed the news, saying Kendricks would sign his deal Monday after visiting the Browns on Friday. Finally, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press added a third affirmative report, saying the former member of the Philadelphia Eagles’ linebacking corps had finalized the deal Sunday and chose the Browns over the Vikings, a team featuring Eric Kendricks, Mychal’s brother.

So that’s three independently verified reports, all saying the same thing. Yet when Tomasson asked Mychal Kendricks about the news, he didn’t exactly get confirmation.

Would be a natural fit, right? Telesco wrote during a live chat with fans on the team’s official website. I saw that Philip voted for it. When it comes to roster moves, we are not a democracy. But we are not a dictatorship either. His vote was noted and accounted for. Antonio’s accomplishments and contributions to this organization are immeasurable. We will see what the future holds. I don’t have an update at Grady Jarrett Womens Jersey this time.

This comes on the heels of Telesco promising in May the team would look at all the options that are out there,per Jack Wang of the Orange County Register.

I’d always be excited if [Gates] walked back in the door, Rivers said this week. It would get my vote.

It makes sense, even with Gates set to turn 38 this month. The playbook is drilled into his brain and he can still operate as a red-zone threat.

Besides, there’s not a ton out there in terms of options. Brent Celek, Coby Fleener and the long-lost Gary Barnidge are looking for work, but the Chargers also have four guys of their own in Virgil Green, Sean McGrath, Sean Culkin and Braedon Bowman.

Lions still figuring out backfield rotation, but LeGarrette Blount will have role

LeGarrette Blount is accustomed to sharing the backfield. So, if the Lions have a rotation with Blount, Kerryon Johnson, Theo Riddick and/or Ameer Abdullah, the veteran running back will fit right in.

I have always followed the ball — and the officials — up and down the field, Halas said. A coach has to stay on top of the action to make decisions. I cannot do that any longer. . . . I supposed I began to realize this in one of our final games last season when I started rushing after the referee who was pacing off a penalty and it suddenly dawned on me that I wasn’t gaining on him. I began to wonder whether the officials were speeding up, or I was slowing down.

Hicks tore his Achilles on Oct. 23 against Washington, so having him up and moving to that degree is an encouraging sign.

The Eagles released veteran Mychal Kendricks the same day free agent pickup Paul Worrilow suffered a torn ACL in practice, so having Hicks back and moving’s a good sign.

Cassius Marsh to Patriots fans: Sorry if you can’t handle the truth but that’s how I feel

Former Patriots defensive end Cassius Marsh took some heat from New England fans when he said he’s glad to be with the 49ers because the Patriots don’t have any fun. But unlike some athletes whose words get them in trouble, Marsh isn’t claiming he was taken out of context or misunderstood.

Donald Penn angrily called Jon Gruden after Raiders drafted Kolton Miller

The Raiders took their left tackle of the future, Kolton Miller, with the 15th overall pick in this year’s draft. Their left tackle of the present wasn’t pleased.
Men's Reebok Sergei Bobrovsky Premier White Away NHL Jersey: Columbus Blue Jackets #72
Donald Penn, the 35-year-old who has manned the left tackle spot in Oakland the last four years, called coach Jon Gruden and demanded to know why they would use their first-round pick on a player whose likely role will be to replace Penn some day.

He’s the best basketball player we’ve ever seen, James said that night. If you see 23, you think about Michael Jordan. You see guys flying through the air, you think about Michael Jordan. You see game-winning shots, you think about Michael Jordan. You see fly kicks, you think about Michael Jordan. He did so much, it has to be recognized, and not just by putting him in the Hall of Fame.

A few weeks later, James filed paperwork to change his number for the following season. When he signed with the Heat and switched to No. 6, there were some conspiracy theories that James knew he’d be going to Miami and that’s why he brought up the number change. James denied that was true, noting he would’ve had to change his number if he signed in Chicago, where it is also retired for Jordan.

The NFL is in a very different situation than the NBA, Silver said. Twenty-five percent of our league is comprised of players who aren’t American. So it’s hard to say in the case of the NBA it’s about patriotism, when a quarter of Authentic Zach Randolph Jersey our players aren’t even American. But we’ve collectively viewed it as a moment of unity in our arenas.
Joe Kelly Youth Jersey
That’s kind of a weird explanation, frankly. The more accurate truth is that, in the aftermath of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf refusing to stand for the anthem more than 20 years ago, the NBA swooped in and negotiated an agreement with the NBA Players Association to make standing mandatory. End of problem.
Elite Womens Russell Bodine Jersey
Which is precisely what the NFL should have done. But the NFL doesn’t enjoy the kind of relationship with the NFL Players Association that would be conducive to a quick and easy win-win outcome, and the league surely didn’t want to get squeezed into making a concession to players in order to make the problem go away in August 2016.

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph almost didn’t make it past his first season with the team.

He’s a competitor, as well as myself, Taylor said, per Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot. I think that’s what drives us, that’s what gets us to the point that we’re at now in our career. Like I said, that doesn’t faze me.

It feels great to be able to help the team in this way, it’s crazy to think the success I’ve had in this position, said Williams. I was talking with our assistant hitting coach, Pedro Guerrero, about the difference pinch-hitting compared to when I do get starts. I know I have only one AB, so I don’t put too much pressure on myself. I just try to keep it as simple as possible.
Kevin Johnson Youth Jersey
However, Williams said he hasn’t settled into any kind of different routine as a bench player.

Differently, no, said Williams. I’m preparing myself to get five ABs every day, so I’m trying not to change that routine since it’s been working for me.

Williams hit a two-out, three-run home run with the Phillies trailing 1-0 in the sixth inning of a 4-2 win over the Mets on May 13. He snapped a 5-5 tie with a solo shot in the eighth inning of a win against the Reds on April 9.

Williams is starting more than a typical pinch-hitter. Like rookie Scott Kingery – the extra man in the infield – the Phillies view Williams as a player who could start and not be a drop-off from their regulars and they play him accordingly.

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.

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.

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.

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.
