The Indianapolis Colts have re-signed offensive lineman Jack Mewhort to a one-year contract, the team announced.
What is the best way to define it? One suggestion is to count steps. After a receiver establishes himself in bounds, he would need to take, say, two or three steps. That would qualify as an act common to the game, or a football move. A receiver going to the ground can still take steps, as Bryant did during his 2014 play.
That sounds nice, but there are at least two obstacles in that suggestion.

First, it would mean that control, even for an instant, would count as a reception. There would be a fair number Victor Oladipo Authentic Jersey of bang-bang plays — when the ball lands in the receiver’s hand(s) but is immediately separated by a defensive hit — to be ruled a catch. Would that look any better than an incomplete pass when going to the ground?
Control, two feet down and a big hit has to be an incomplete pass, Polian said. Why? Because if those are complete passes, they will have to be considered fumbles. And we do not want more fumbles. They cause melees. Players are out of control, diving for the ball. They’re very difficult to officiate. We’ve done that for decades. Bang-bang plays have to stay incomplete passes. That’s wholly my view.
Ask the NFL and the International Olympic Committee, a TV exec said. They set the dates. Neither of those organizations cared to comment, however, when our Richard Morgan asked which one of them would blink.
Their failure to reschedule could ruin a good thing. NBC’s prime-time viewership in the coveted 18-to-49 demo soared by 324 percent during their Super Bowl-Olympics twofer, while ABC, CBS and Fox all posted double-digit declines, according to a report from research firm MoffettNathanson.
As Henny Youngman would suggest, take Cris Carter. Might it be time he reconsider his side work as a mentor to pro athletes and go into something more productive, say, peddling peanut brittle door-to-door.
Kids Adrian Phillips Jersey As a veteran Vikings receiver, he was assigned to mentor selfish, divisive teammate Randy Moss. That didn’t go well.
Then, while with ESPN, he mentored a room of NFL rookies, suggesting they combat their presumed future criminality with more: finding a buddy to take the rap.
So why not give it up? Carter’s just not good at it. It isn’t as if he’s Jimmy Dolan, who inherited his right to produce NBA and NHL mediocrities 鈥?or worse 鈥?often simultaneously for nearly 25 consecutive seasons.
