Hue Jackson reiterates that Tyrod Taylor is the starter and that won鈥檛 change

Limited Mens Hampus Lindholm Jersey Baker Mayfield is not going to win the starting quarterback job before the start of the season. Browns coach Hue Jackson reiterated that Tyrod Taylor is the team鈥檚 starter with no competition.
Youth Jonas Brodin Breakaway White Fanatics Branded Jersey: NHL Minnesota Wild #25 Away
I鈥檓 not going to back off of this, Jackson said, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. We can keep writing this narrative. Tyrod Taylor鈥檚 the starting quarterback of this football team, and that won鈥檛 change.

Jackson hopes Taylor, who is 22-20 as a starter, will take Mayfield under his wing and serve as a mentor.

Tyrod has demonstrated every day what it鈥檚 like to be a starting quarterback in the National Football League, Jackson said. I want some of that to rub off on [Mayfield] so he can see firsthand what it means to play quarterback in the National Football Authentic Logan Thomas Jersey League. Baker doesn鈥檛 know. . . . The thing I like about the young man, he鈥檚 going to do the work. I truly believe that.

Bills General Manager Brandon Beane says he was working hard on trying to get the fourth overall pick, but Browns General Manager John Dorsey was holding out for too high a price.

I probably talked to John Dorsey more than anybody through the process, but we could not come to an agreement on what was fair, Beane told the Buffalo News.

Limited Mens Darian Thompson Jersey Beane also had a deal in advance with Broncos General Manager John Elway that would have seen the Bills send the 12th overall pick, the 22nd overall pick and a second-round pick to Denver in exchange for the fifth overall pick. But Elway said he would only do that if the player he wanted was off the board at No. 5. It turned out the player Elway wanted, Bradley Chubb, was available, and the Broncos stayed put and drafted him.

How many QBs will the Jets keep? Todd Bowles is non-committal

Bryce Petty was the first Jets quarterback to go with his release Thursday.

But is he the last?

Regarding Rudolph’s comment that it isn’t up to Roethlisberger to mentor him, the Steelers’ starting quarterback said, If he asks me a question, I might just have to point to the playbook.

Asked if the Jets would consider bringing all four quarterbacks under contract into training camp later this year, Bowles said, we’ve got to make some decisions and we’ll make them down the line.

Ranking the playoff chances of the NFL’s seven new head coaches More The NFL’s 2017 season turned out to be ultra-productive for the league’s crop of new head coaches, with half of the six-man class getting their teams to the playoffs in their first try, overcoming burdensome legacies of losing in the process. The AFC East’s Bills ended their ignominious NFL-worst 17-year streak of missing the playoffs with Sean McDermott in charge. The youthful Rams were re-born in year one of the Sean McVay era, going 11-5 and winning the NFC West for the first time since 2003.

Outside linebacker: For now, the 49ers are still counting on Foster to play a big role in the middle and got some insurance in former Chargers starter Korey Toomer. But on the outside, Eli Harold is shaky and Malcolm Smith is coming off a season lost to a torn pectoral. Because Smith can flip to either weak or strong side, San Francisco needs to find a K.J. Wright-type rangy tackler and cover man to support Foster.

There has been a fascinating phenomenon over the last few weeks. Those who know the true Gina Haspel — who worked with her, who served with her, who helped her confront terrorism, Russia and countless other threats to our nation — they almost uniformly support her, said Ryan Trapani, a CIA spokesman. That is true for people who disagree about nearly everything else. There is a reason for that. When the American people finally have a chance to see the true Gina Haspel on Wednesday, they will understand why she is so admired and why she is and will be a great leader for this agency.tigers_012-115x115

Giants’ Saquon Barkley will make NFL contract history

The New York Giants selected former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley No. 2 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday night. The pick itself isn’t too much of a surprise. New York had been linked to the dynamic running back throughout the pre-draft process.
Men's Replica Majestic Yasmany Tomas Black/Brick Alternate Jersey - #24 MLB Arizona Diamondbacks Cool Base
Contrary opinion from a source having an anxiety attack:聽Barkley is secretly Trent Richardson 2.0. He lacks vision and will become tentative after a few 21-44-1 stat lines (those were his numbers against Ohio State last year) at the NFL level. This is a one-way ticket to Bust City; population: overdrafted running backs!

Elite Youth Matt Belisle Jersey He hasn’t discussed the nature of his condition, but it’s clear it affected his draft status.

Ten defensive tackles were taken ahead of him, and the Lions’ passed on him with the No. 43 and No. 82 overall picks on Friday and the No. 114 pick on Saturday.

So, things are shaping out pretty well for the Raiders. But if for some reason both of those two guys aren’t there, there are plenty of other prospects worth taking at No. 10. And don’t rule out a trade down.

Kids George Fant Jersey The Patriots took Georgia tackle Isaiah Wynn and Georgia running back Sony Michel in the first round and Florida cornerback Duke Dawson in the second.

If you tried to make an inside linebacker version of聽Jadeveon Clowney, you might end up with Tremaine Edmunds. Edmunds is blessedly athletic, with a powerful base and arms that look like he borrowed them from a 6’7 power forward. He’s aggressive when attacking the ball or playing perpendicular to the line of scrimmage, and Edmunds has the potential to be a three-down defender who plays in space on early downs and rushes the edge on 3rd-and-long.

But Edmunds loses track of receivers in coverage and gets caught staring into the backfield on play action, making him a frustrating player to watch in pass coverage, and he will sometimes overrun holes and cutback lanes in run defense. He’s raw, and he’ll be a liability if forced to play a major role right away.

Allen played a role in Washington’s decision not to offer Kirk Cousins top quarterback money. Instead, the team decided to let Cousins walk in free agency while acquiring Pro Bowl signal caller Alex Smith from Kansas City. Allen’s relationship with Cousins had been considered a major issue in the past. And in reality, it’s not the only person within the Mason Crosby Youth jersey organization that Allen has had an issue with.

That makes Darnold an easy and appealing pick for new general manager John Dorsey, who laid out his criteria for a quarterback in his first predraft press conference in his new position.

The only thing I really care about is do guys win? Dorsey said, per Jeff Schudel Ichiro Suzuki Womens Jersey of the News-Herald. Does he have accuracy? Does he have a strong arm? Can he throw the ball in the red zone in tight windows? Can he drive the ball? At the end of the game, does he win? That’s what I look for.
Women's Anthony Stolarz Authentic White/Pink Adidas Jersey: NHL Philadelphia Flyers #41 Fashion
Darnold has those characteristics now, and when he cleans up his footwork, he’s going to be even better. A recent tape study made it clear that when he’s mechanically sound, he can elude pressure both in and out of the pocket and make some truly spectacular throws. It’s then Jackson’s job to clean up the things that need fixing, which should be comparatively easy.

This would leave a hole at left guard that would be filled estimably by Nelson, who I believe is the best overall player in this class, regardless of position. Michigan’s Steve Hutchinson and Stanford’s David DeCastro are the two best college guards I’ve watched prior to the 2018 class; Nelson is the perfect hybrid of those two in that he has Hutchinson’s malevolent desire to dominate every defender he squares off with and DeCastro’s combination of physical strength and adherence to top-level technique.

Javon Hargrave Game Jersey Philadelphia and New England players go up to make a play on a Hail Mary pass from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on the final play of the game. The pass fell to the ground for an incompletion, allowing the Eagles to triumph.

The Eagle fans watch police officers apply hydraulic fluid to traffic light poles as a security measure for Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4聽in Philadelphia. City officials hope the hydraulic fluid will keep fans from climbing the poles after the Super Bowl.

In other words, the Ravens are the way they are by design. They want you to cringe in disgust at their victories and lapse into a boredom coma during their losses. They enjoy success but hate joy.

Now they are once again selecting a tight end. And they made the wrong choice.

Hayden Hurst spent two seasons in the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league system coming out of high school, batting.245 (and slugging.245) as a rookie-league first baseman before returning to college and walking on at South Carolina. He eventually became a soft-handed move tight end who worked underneath zones well, catching 100 career passes from all over the formation.

And the winner of the NFL Draft is… ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit.
Omri Casspi Authentic Home White Men's Jersey: Golden State Warriors #18 Association Edition Nike NBA
Working his first NFL Draft, the College GameDay analyst outshined more experienced draft TV veterans on ESPN. With his in-depth knowledge of college players, and easy confidence on camera, Herbstreit was a big improvement from the late, unlamented Jon Gruden. His performance made some viewers wonder what took ESPN so long to add him to its draft coverage?

If one of these guys separated themselves, based on their evaluations, in my mind it is Baker Mayfield, Herbstreit said before the Browns made their pick. It’s not just that he scrambles around and makes plays. This guy can sit in the pocket 鈥?and he’s the most accurate of any of these quarterbacks in this draft. And he brings all the intangibles that you want. Forget the off-the-field issues, in my opinion. [He’s] not Johnny Manziel. This kid is a proven winner.
Limited Womens Deryk Engelland Jersey
Over on rival Fox/NFL Network simulcast, the consensus was USC’s Sam Darnold would go No. 1. Troy Aikman, Herbstreit’s fellow draft TV rookie, thought the Mayfield rumors were a smoke-screen.

Said Aikman: I think the guy who Antoine Morand Jersey is the safest pick for them, who checks most of the boxes is Sam Darnold. I think he does everything very, very well.

Don’t be surprised if three centers go off the board in the first round. NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah recently acknowledged going back to the tape for a deeper study of Arkansas’ Frank Ragnow, whose stock in rising in NFL war rooms.

He seems to be a lock to go in the first round, Rapoport added on NFL Up to the Minute , which is something if you told me two weeks ago I never would have believed it.

Mens Carlos Ruiz Jersey Iowa’s James Daniels (No. 17) and Ragnow (No. 19) are both ranked high on NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock’s list of the top 100 prospects in the 2018 draft. Ohio State’s Billy Price , who suffered a partially torn pectoral at the scouting combine, comes in at No. 45.

Another player on the rise is Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith , whom Rapoport believes might have the most unanimously approved game film in the draft. Smith is the name Jeremiah keeps hearing over and over again for the Colts at No. 6.

NFL Draft 2018: Steelers select potential Ben Roethlisberger successor Mason Rudol

The Steelers appear to have found Ben Roethlisberger’s successor after selecting Mason Rudolph in the third round of the NFL Draft.

Pittsburgh traded up from No. 79 to No. 76 to select Rudolph, who had been talked about as a player who could sneak into the first round after a stellar career at Oklahoma State.

— Coach Hue Jackson seemed enamored of Mayfield at the NFL Meetings last month.

“No doubt, he is (still legitimately in the mix at No. 1),” Jackson said. “I think he’s outstanding. I have a different appreciation for Baker. Spending that time with him, what a leader, tremendous person. He is important in the community. I think he’s important to his teammates. I kind of feel like he’s the Pied Piper of Oklahoma football.”

Is this enough evidence to cement Mayfield as the No. 1 overall pick? Obviously not. Anything can happen. But if Mayfield does go No. 1, it will be easy in hindsight to go back and connect the dots.

Mathis’ 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card sold at auction Thursday for $2.88 million, according to the Heritage Auctions website. The card was graded by the authenticating firm PSA as a Mint 9, the second-highest grade available and a rare classification for a 1952 Mantle.

While Heritage had estimated the card’s value at $3.5 million before to the auction, it still came close to the record of $3.12 million paid in 2016 for a T-206 Honus Wagner card.

Mathis told The Associated Press last month he acquired the card about two years ago but decided to part with it because he needed to free up some money to move his family from Arizona to Tennessee.

“I don’t think I’ll have any regrets because I’ll have a nice house to show for it instead of the card,” he said.

Mathis, 36, retired following the 2016 NFL season after stints with the Panthers, Dolphins, Bengals, Eagles, Broncos and Cardinals. He was a Pro Bowl selection at guard for the Eagles in 2013 and ’14, and was part of Denver’s Super Bowl champion team the following year.dolphins_098

Ty Montgomery knows he needs to stay healthy

During the Scouting Combine earlier this year, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said that two most important abilities [for a player] in all this is availability and accountability while noting that running back Ty Montgomery’s biggest stumbling block has been availability.

Montgomery missed 10 games and the playoffs with an ankle injury in 2015 and missed eight games with rib and wrist injuries last year, which illustrates the point McCarthy was making. It’s something that Montgomery knows needs to change if he’s going to realize his full potential as an NFL player.

Blackmon did his damage against the otherwise stingy Stephen Strasburg. His two-out homer in the fourth was the Rockies’ first hit off Strasburg, who retired the first 11 batters. In the sixth, Blackmon squeezed a grounder past first baseman Ryan Zimmerman into the right-field corner to score two runs and tie the game at 3. Gonzalez followed with a single against the shift to score Blackmon.

I’ve never seen anything like it. I have to fill out a mock draft tonight, and I’ll take any and all suggestions, NFL Network analyst and former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah said. You’re Matt Breida Womens Jersey trying to build a house and you can’t pour the foundation. You don’t know who the first pick is going to be. So when you don’t know who the first pick is going to be, it’s a trickle-down effect. It can go in a million different ways.

I’ve celebrated weddings, birthdays, bachelorette and bachelor parties, graduations, job promotions and everything in between.An investigation into NFL teams’ bizarre questioning of prospects during the Combine has now turned on the player who launched it.

Limited Youth Cale Makar Jersey Former LSU running back Derrius Guice is one of four potential first-round draft picks facing scrutiny for off-the-field issues, NFL.com reported, after he apparently walked back his story about a team surprising him with inappropriate questions. On top of doubts over Guice’s maturity level, NFL evaluators Jonas Brodin Youth jersey wonder what his ambiguous account says about him as a future teammate.

His explanation was that it was taken out of context, a team executive told NFL.com. There’s just a lot going on with him.

Guice revisited a common accusation against NFL front offices during the interview portion of the Combine when he revealed he was asked if he likes men and how he feels about his mom being a prostitute. These interviews are often framed as a way to test the prospect psychologically and emotionally.

I’d go in one room and a team would ask me, ‘Do I like men?’ just to see my reaction, Guice recalled on SiriusXM NFL Radio in early March. They’d try to bring up one of my family members or somebody and tell me, ‘Hey, man, I heard your mom sells herself. How do you feel about that?’ Just random stuff like that, man, to see how you respond.

The story led the NFL to announce it would investigate Guice’s claims about the interviews, which the league called completely inappropriate and wholly contrary to league workplace policies.

After Guice reportedly noted to some teams that the question-and-answer session didn’t happen exactly as he’d described it, draft evaluators have buckled.

Shane Ray expects Broncos to exercise the 2019 option on his contract

Although Broncos General Manager John Elway said the team has not decided whether to exercise its 2019 option on Shane Ray’s contract, Ray expects Denver to pick it up.
Women's Randy Johnson Navy Blue Nike : MLB New York Yankees #41 Name & Number T-Shirt
I’m not concerned, the linebacker said, via Vicki Jhabvala of The Athletic. I love being a Bronco. John’s got a lot of things to deal with, and whether or not he picks up my option, it doesn’t say anything about what I’m going to be for this team, my role for this team. I’m just excited. I wouldn’t look into too much. I think that it’s going to get picked up. I think that I’m going to be here, and I’m just looking forward to this opportunity.

Frederik Gauthier Game Jersey
Authentic Mens Trent Taylor Jersey And not when it comes to seizing upon the opportunity to pick second in the draft, especially at a time in franchise history when we are closing in on the denouement (if not the epilogue) of the Eli Manning Era, in a draft rich with quarterback talent, at a time when the NFL has become a place where the first three prerequisites for competing for a championship read thusly:

Barkley would be a wonderful human highlight film. Anyone who watched him fillet Big Ten defenses knows he is going to be one of those running backs whose skills turn balletic when slowed down by NFL Films, with some brass-heavy orchestration in the background. He will be fun to watch play.

Odell Beckham Jr. is fun to watch play, too.

With Torres probably taking over at second, Wade likely will be optioned to Triple-A.

While full financial terms are not immediately available, a source told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport that the deal includes a $2 million signing bonus and several millions more in incentives if Foles becomes the starter and hits various benchmarks as Philly’s starting QB.

Both of Week 3’s interleague series will involve National League teams visiting American League parks, which means the addition (rather than subtraction going in the opposite direction) of the designated hitter for the Miami Marlins (two games at Yankee Stadium) and San Francisco Giants (three games at Angel Stadium). Unfortunately, there’s little benefit for the Marlins, who will probably use the position as a “half-day off” for one of their regular hitters, but the Giants could allow Pablo Sandoval to pick up the majority of their DH starts. The bigger story for these two teams is the potential return of a few notable names from the DL: catcher J.T. Realmuto (back) for the Marlins, and starting pitchers Johnny Cueto (ankle) and Jeff Samardzija (pectoral) for the Giants. Cueto could wind up as a two-start pitcher if he returns as scheduled on Tuesday, in which case he’d warrant instant activation in all formats.

Meantime, rookie Miguel Andujar (.250, 2 HR, 9 RBIs, 12 games) has been hot the week starting at third base with injured starter Brandon Drury on the DL. Andujar was 2-for-4 with a three-run double on Saturday and is hitting .450 with eight extra-base hits in his last five games.

Ronald Torreyes, the Yanks’ starter at second a lot in recent games, probably will return to his old role as utility infielder.

Mean time, Walker could be in danger of being released if he doesn’t pick it up. In addition to seeing time at second base, the veteran switch-hitter has been platooning at first base with Tyler Austin, who has been more productive.

Walker’s roster spot could be in jeopardy next month when starting first baseman Greg Bird makes an expected return from March ankle surgery.

With a masterful wit and incisive sarcasm, Popovich has shown himself to be equal parts strict and caring as it pertains to his players, and coaches typically require a good cop to their bad cop.steelers_105
