NFL Scouting Combine 2018: Wyoming’s Josh Allen is showing off on throwing drills

The consensus around Josh Allen at the NFL Scouting Combine is that he’s showing off with impressive workouts, and it’s getting everyone’s attention.
Youth Replica Majestic Francisco Cervelli Camo Alternate Jersey - #29 MLB Pittsburgh Pirates Cool Base
There’s no doubt the quarterback who led Wyoming has a strong throwing arm, but during the throwing drills at the combine, he made a big statement about how well he can really throw.

You may have heard: Anthony Davis is cookin’ these days. Not only can he leap tall buildings in a single bound and save kittens from trees, he can also get opposing front courts in foul trouble, and that’s a major concern with Aldridge grading out as the 58th best defender in the league…at the power forward position (behind Dirk Nowitzki). An opposing big has committed at least five fouls in all three games over the past week against the Pelicans and I simply don’t think that’s a mistake given Davis’ aggression.

Jaden Schwartz Limited Jersey Although Aldridge has produced two strong performances coming out of the All Star Break and has had the past two days off, his salary clearly reflects that with him being priced well above both Blake Griffin and Draymond Green. The threat of foul trouble is enough for me to fade him and his mere 11 rebounds over his last 73 minutes only further confirms that decision for me.

Miami is seeking Chris Clark Authentic Jersey a draft pick or a player in exchange for Landry, the report says. The Bears, who have seven picks in April’s draft (no third-rounder) and a need at the WR position, have the cap space to take on Landry’s deal.

Dermontti Dawson Limited Jersey According to ESPN, the Ravens, who have just under $12 million in cap space, are also among the at least five teams vying for Landry’s services next season.

The Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears are among at least five teams to talk with Jarvis Landry’s agent about a potential trade for the Pro Bowl receiver, according to a source. No deal is imminent at this time.

Landry’s side and the Fins’ front office have been working together on his future, with the latter allowing Landry’s camp to discuss contract terms with other teams that might be interested in trading for him, the Herald says.

Landry has been a productive piece for the Dolphins over the last four years, tabbing 400 receptions for 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns in his four seasons in the league.

Decker is pretty much a straight-up slot receiver who still has some of his red-zone pop.

Everyone else in the NFC West is miles ahead of where the Cardinals are, so being a tough out and a spoiler in the division race is their ceiling for a few seasons. But with Wilks’ patient owners, he will get a good three or four years to make the team a contender.

Limited Youth Thomas Davis Jersey Until then, they’re just going to be one of those teams that shows up from time to time on Thursday nights and you think, oh yeah, I forgot about the Cardinals.

Staring down 40, Nagy is an old fart compared to McVay. But the Bears’ new head coach is inheriting a situation eerily similar to the one McVay found himself in a year ago.

He can be an effective role player in this stage of his career. He wouldn’t be bad in a place such as Cleveland.

Brown is another speedy deep threat with a long, recent history of injuries. Brown still has speed to burn, but it might be hard for him to find a Torrey Smith-like home in 2018.

He’s an older prospect, but Ridley is special as a vertical pass catcher with high-end explosiveness and run-after-catch ability as a perimeter receiver. He has emerged as the draft’s clear top receiver before the Combine.

A gifted athlete who took over as FSU’s defensive leader after Jalen Ramsey departed, Jason Taylor Womens Jersey James didn’t emerge as a franchise-changing talent in 2017. But he possesses too much athleticism to slip outside the top 10 or 15 picks.

One of the most NFL-ready linebackers in terms of instincts, stack-and-shedding and finishing on the interior, Smith has Luke Kuechly-like potential. He can be the final piece for a team lacking an interior enforcer and defensive leader.
Russell Shepard Youth Jersey
The Flames need to round out their lineup, and a versatile player like Ottawa’s Mike Hoffman would be ideal. Wingers Michael Grabner (New York Rangers) and Gustav Nyquist (Detroit) also seem within range.

Keenum should be viewed as more of a stopgap in front of a young franchise passer.

In the wake of a Sports Illustrated investigation that detailed a culture of misogyny and predatory behavior in the Dallas Mavericks organization, the team’s longtime star, Dirk Nowitzki, responded Wednesday, calling the allegations “truly, truly disgusting.”

“It’s tough,” Nowitzki said after the team practiced at USC in advance of a Friday game against the Los Angeles Lakers. “It’s very disappointing. It’s heartbreaking. I’m glad it’s all coming out. I was disgusted when I read the article, obviously, as everybody was. I was shocked about some of the stuff.”

It’s a surprising thing for a head coach to say when it’s already late February and his team ranks 28th in defensive efficiency (109.8 points allowed per 100 possessions), but that’s how much the Cavs have changed in the past several weeks. Still, it doesn’t abolish all of the issues.

On the day of the NBA draft back in June, just days after Cleveland parted ways with former GM David Griffin, a robust Cavs contingent made up of front-office personnel, coaches and team support staff members held an impromptu, “what if?” discussion about Kyrie Irving’s future, multiple team sources confirmed to ESPN.

The discussion, characterized as “small talk” by one source familiar with its content, was less a formal straw poll of what the Cavs should do with their All-Star point guard should trade opportunities present themselves, and more of a thought exercise anticipating what the market could bear for a player of Irving’s caliber.

The talk got back to Irving, multiple team sources told ESPN, and that served as the tipping point that led to Irving formally requesting a trade a little more than two weeks later.

A slight uptick in injuries played during the 2017 contests did not deter the NFL from signing a new five-year “Thursday Night Football” package with FOX. Winston acknowledged that the money involved in “Thursday Night Football” that trickles back to the players has made those games a necessary evil in helping the salary cap continue to annually rise.

The NFL reportedly received $3.3 billion from FOX for Thursday night telecasts while still retaining the ability to sell lucrative online streaming rights to another provider. Those revenues are split between the NFL and NFLPA based upon rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement adopted in 2011.

Keenum still has some intriguing value, but the Garoppolo trade, the Smith trade, Cousins’ and Bradford’s free agency and the depth of first-round QBs take away his shine, especially after his shaky NFC title game. He also will be on the older side and comes with major inconsistency issues.bears_136

Tom Brady is now officially the oldest MVP in major sport history

Tom Brady believes he can play until he’s 45. If his performance as a 40-year-old is any indication, that won’t be a problem.
Women's Edmonton Oilers #21 Andrew Ference Reebok White Away Premier NHL Jersey
Willie McCovey Authentic Jersey Brady won the 2018 NFL MVP Award Saturday night, making him the oldest player to ever take home MVP honors in any of the four major sports. The previous record had been held by Barry Bonds, who won his last award at 40 years, three months, and 22 days. Brady, at the time of the award, was a shade under 40 years and six months old.

The voters don’t often elect wide receivers in their first year of eligibility. Moss joins Raymond Berry, Lance Alworth, Paul Warfield, Steve Largent, and Jerry Rice as the only wide receivers who have made it in on the first try.

Moss is ranked second all-time in receiving touchdowns with 156, behind only Rice. He’s fourth, behind Rice, Terrell Owens, and Larry Fitzgerald, in career yards receiving with 15,292. He’s a six-time Pro Bowler and was named a first-team All-Pro four times. Now he can add the Hall of Fame to his long list of accomplishments.
Youth Patrice Bergeron Jersey
There is one primary reason Moss is a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

The Los Angeles Rams (+1750) and Jacksonville Jaguars (+2000) both took major strides in 2017 and look poised to do some damage as value picks in 2018. Another potential value pick could be the San Francisco 49ers (+1800), who finished the season off on a 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS run when they turned the starting quarterback role over to Jimmy Garoppolo.

Other potential Super Bowl 53 contenders include the Houston Texans (+1850), New Orleans Saints (+1850), Atlanta Falcons (+2000), Oakland Raiders (+2100), Carolina Panthers (+2500), and Seattle Seahawks (+2500).

The Devils face a team that is just on the outside looking in at a playoff spot in the East, and that has lost four of its past six games following Wednesday’s shootout Calvin Pickard Youth jersey defeat at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Rae Carruth speaks publicly for first time as October release approaches

Rae Carruth, convicted in 2001 of conspiring to murder Cherica Adams who was pregnant with their son, has spoken publicly for the first time since doing an interview with CNN early in his sentence, telling WBTV in Charlotte he is owning up to his actions and he wants to be part of his son Chancellor’s life.
Nike Youth Frank Clark Elite White Road Jersey - Seattle Seahawks NFL #55 Vapor Untouchable
Carruth, scheduled to be released from prison in October, wrote a 15-page, 3,000-word open letter to Saundra Adams, Cherica’s mother, asking for her forgiveness and that he is given a chance to take care of Chancellor, who was born with Cerebral Palsy due to the gunshots that killed his mother.
Game Dion Dawkins Jersey
He also believes it is not too late for a fresh start with Chancellor, now Chicago Cubs Jersey 18.

I let him down as he came into this world and the only way that I can make that right and the only way I can work out my relationship with my son is to be there for him, he said.

Cousins earned $44 million from the two franchise tags he signed with Washington, so he could easily surpass Garoppolo as the highest-paid NFL player if the Jets are willing to pony up.

This stop-and-go Super Bowl featured two boring quarters, an explosion of big plays, and Janet Jackson’s nipple. The Patriots coughed up an 11-point, fourth-quarter lead before Brady once again rallied his team back. This time it was a seven-play, 37-yard drive to set up a 41-yard game winner from Vinatieri that gave New England its second NFL title in three years.

Marqise Lee Authentic Jersey The Pats didn’t need a game-winning field goal this time 锟斤拷 just some classic Andy Reid clock management. Despite being down by 10 points, the Eagles took their sweet time in the fourth quarter, burning nearly four minutes on a late touchdown drive that would necessitate a questionable onside kick with 1:55 to play. Philadelphia would get the ball back at its own 4-yard line with 46 seconds on the clock, but a Rodney Harrison interception would seal the game for New England.

2018 NFL Mock Draft 2.0: Mel Kiper’s picks for 1-32

Elite Youth Dorian Johnson Jersey We’re through the evaluation process of the Senior Bowl, and the combine (Feb. 27-March 5) is on deck. The picture for the 2018 NFL draft is becoming clearer, though we still have to get through free agency — and the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes — before we have a better idea of what all 32 teams need.
Women's Danny Santana Replica White Majestic Jersey: MLB Atlanta Braves #23 Home Cool Base
I’m sticking with Allen here. The only way I see the Browns not ending up with a quarterback at No. 1 is if they sign Kirk Cousins, which is Lamarcus Joyner Authentic Jersey going to cost them around $100 million in guarantees. Then they could trade down with a quarterback-needy team to pick up more talent — and remember, they have the No. 4 pick, too. Allen had a strong week at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, improving every day. The NFL statistical comp I make to Allen: Matthew Stafford, who completed 57.1 percent of his passes in 39 games at Georgia and still went No. 1 overall. And Stafford had better talent around him.

The Summer Olympics are packed with fascinating, popular, and high-profile sports.

Track and field is the historic centerpiece of the games, and swimming (with its 2,156 different events) is a huge deal. Gymnastics is big. Volleyball, beach and indoor, are draws. To some extent depending on who shows up to compete, there’s tennis and golf.

Mayfield will be at the NFL scouting combine next week and is projected as a possible first-round pick in April’s draft.

It has been four years since Manziel, the first freshman to win the Heisman at Texas A&M in 2012, was taken 22nd overall by the Cleveland Browns and dumped after two trouble-filled seasons. A former Texas high school star like Mayfield, Manziel has been out of football for two years.
Elite Youth Byron Scott Jersey
After an offseason arrest for public intoxication and disorderly conduct, Mayfield planted an OU flag at midfield after a win at Ohio State. He made a lewd gesture toward the Kansas sideline after the Jayhawks refused to shake his hand before the coin flip.

There’s really no excuse for it. But here are a couple 鈥?Watson is done fooling around with those trash neon colored golf balls and now says he’s healthier, although he wouldn’t disclose exactly what he had to deal with last year.

Statistics strongly suggest the Rams are more than merely another fluke this season through the first month.

“I’ve made Coach Tomlin look bad, and that is my fault, and that is my fault only,” Villanueva said. “I made my teammates look bad, and that is my fault, and my fault only. And I made the Steelers also look bad, and that is my fault, and my fault only. So unwillingly, I made a mistake.’’

The mistake here is the fact that, in the aftermath of this mess, no one from the Steelers has publicly stated his support of Villanueva, stated that he has nothing to apologize for.

“I talked to my teammates about the situation, hopefully they understand it,’’ he said. “If they don’t, I still have to live with it, because the nature of this debate is causing a lot of very heated reaction from fans from players, and it’s undeserving to all of the players and coaches from this organization.’’

And if the preseason is any indication of things to come, the 49ers might find themselves with one of the league’s best young defenders. Here’s Foster on the very first play of Sunday’s game against the Vikings:

There are plenty of concerns about the 49ers offense, primarly because it’s unclear if Brian Hoyer is anything other than a short-term solution to lingering questions about the quarterback position. But if you’re looking for reasons for optimism, Hoyer and Marquise Goodwin — who is literally a world-class sprinter — hooked up on a 46-yard yard touchdown pass on the offense’s first drive.

Harold Landry, OLB, Boston College. Bill Belichick, here’s your new Jamie Collins. While Landry is nowhere near the run defender as Collins, he would give the Patriots a boost in getting after the quarterback, which they showed is a concern by bringing in linebacker James Harrison late in the season. Landry can give them that type of player regularly moving forward and should be an excellent chess piece for the Genius.

Billy Price, G, Ohio State. Assuming the Vikings figure out what to do with their free-agent quarterbacks heading into the draft, Price would be a great target for them as a potential replacement for Joe Berger inside. Price would be one of the better starting centers in the league, so the Vikings have the option of sticking him at the pivot immediately and having Pat Elflein compete at a guard spot.

Veterans Day weekend changes scenes of NFL’s anthem protests

No NFL players protested during the national anthem before early games as the league celebrated Veterans Day weekend by honoring the military.
Nike Women's Budda Baker Elite White Road Jersey - Arizona Cardinals NFL #36 Vapor Untouchable
Dion Jordan Youth Jersey The NFL Players Association had asked all players to observe a two-minute moment of silence before games to honor veterans.

Even players who have been protesting most of the season stood for the anthem this week, including the Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, who stood before Thursday night’s game. Titans receiver Rishard Matthews walked onto the field holding Yasmani Grandal Jersey hands with soldiers and stood with teammates for the anthem for the first time since President Trump criticized players for protesting.

This is coming from a player who was the subject of a two-month NFL probe that concluded he used physical force against Holder in at least four instances during the altercation on May 13, 2014, including one which caused her to land on a futon that was covered with at least four semi-automatic rifles.

Hardy should have stood in front of those reporters and expressed how thankful he is that his suspension had been reduced from 10 games to four by an arbitrator.

It has been tempting just about every year of late to pick the Buccaneers as the team that will break through in the NFC. Is this the year that it actually will happen, in QB Jameis Winston’s third season? Winston certainly has the receivers. The arrival of WR DeSean Jackson provides a big-play element that could make the Tampa offense very good.

And it’s not like he’s all alone in terms of getting the Saints motor running. The combo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram posted a historical season in 2017.

Game Tyler Higbee Jersey The ability of the Saints to win in multiple ways is what really differentiates them. Their running backs are even complementary, a lethal combination who can beat you by grinding out yards between the tackles and also explode in the passing game. Kamara and Ingram don’t have a tell when they line up, they can move around and they are so difficult to defend. The Saints offensive line might be the real differentiator here.

The Panthers are only one season removed from making a run at an unbeaten regular season and reaching the Super Bowl. Why does that seem like such ancient history now? Cam Newton first must prove he’s healthy, then regain something resembling his previous MVP form for the Panthers to matter again.

Is the next monster NFL tight end this college hoops star?

He’s 6-foot-6, 260 pounds of muscle and can run the 40-yard dash in 4.75 seconds. He possesses the dream body of an NFL tight end, strong enough to stay in and block, agile enough to nimbly and quickly move down the field.

But Mo Alie-Cox doesn’t play football. Or at least he didn’t.

The former VCU basketball forward is now an NFL project. He averaged 9.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and two blocks a game last season, and now hopes to rack up receiving yards. The NFL is listening, and teams don’t even have to expend a draft pick to find out if Alie-Cox is a risk worth exploring. The NFL ruled the 23-year-old technically was eligible for the draft last year, after his junior season, making him an NFL free agent who can have his pick of teams.

Just catching the ball, it didn’t feel weird at all, Alie-Cox said. At the end of the day, it’s just being an athlete. It just felt natural.

The most notable recent conversion story is Rico Gathers, a four-year Baylor basketball star who was a sixth-round pick by the Cowboys last season. That experiment is ongoing: Gathers made the practice squad last season as a rookie but didn’t dress for a game.
