The Browns came into the offseason with a ton of cap space and they’ve spent a chunk of it on Friday by trading for three veterans.

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry and quarterback Tyrod Taylor have been joined as pending arrivals by cornerback Damarious Randall. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Browns have agreed to a trade with the Packers to acquire Randall.

If multiple teams truly are looking to trade for the Seahawks All-Pro safety, it certainly is holding up the market. It shows teams are looking for safety help but don’t want to earmark their future funds for a top free agent safety, when they’re still working a way for a potential deal. They’ll need those future Huston Street Authentic Jersey dollars to give Thomas an immediate contract extension and protect their trade investment. With Mathieu off the market, it should only up the Seahawks leverage to force a deal to happen. But eventually, teams will move on to signing other free agent safeties to fill their hole.

In the meantime, Seattle is reportedly asking for a first AND third round pick, which is a steep price for a 28-year-old safety just a year removed from a broken tibia. Seattle Seahawks on 247Sports detailed the chances of a team paying that bounty earlier in the month.

The Cowboys continue to discuss cornerback Orlando Scandrick锟斤拷s future, with all options still on the table, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

The NFL’s most famous and hated refs are retiring

Ed Hochuli is hanging up the biceps, and Jeff Triplette is saying goodbye to the critics.
Men's Limited Mike Hull Orange Jersey: Rush Vapor Untouchable #45 NFL Miami Dolphins Nike
Hochuli, one of the most well-known NFL referees, has retired, as has the controversial Triplette, senior vice president of officiating Al Riveron announced Tuesday.

So, it would go against their draft-day rules at No. 2 to take a quarterback not rated as the No. 1, 2 or 3 player on their board. Reaching for a player is a sign of desperation, and the Giants do not see themselves as desperate to find Manning’s replacement, legitimately believing he has two years left in him as long as they improve the talent, protection and play-making around him.

A running back so high Sure, why not There is nothing the Giants do not like, or love, about Barkley. His interview with them at the Scouting Combine was wonderful. Gettleman, with the Panthers last year, owned the No. 8 pick and took Christian McCaffrey, a gifted running back but not nearly the complete package Barkley offers an NFL team. The belief is Barkley will be the top-rated player on the Giants’ draft board, and they see him as enlivening and perhaps extending Manning’s career, as the offense finally returns the play-action threat to his arsenal.

The former ESPN anchor, who recently returned to WWE, was referenced in the bombshell sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit against the network by Adrienne Lawrence. Coachman was accused of being part of the ESPN culture that promoted threatening treatment of Lawrence and other female employees.

Authentic Womens Johan Larsson Jersey He strongly denied those accusations on Tuesday morning.

I will address this only once because I am seething today. In 21 years of being a PROFESSIONAL I have never been more offended in my life , Coachman wrote on Twitter. To allow someone to spread vicious lies and flat out fabrications is not ok and it’s time someone stood up for themselves.
jemelehill addressed her lie [Monday] night. I am not a part of this lawsuit because I have never done anything wrong. My reputation speaks for itself and anyone that has ever worked with me will back that up.

Lawrence, a former anchor and legal analyst, claimed Coachman used the ESPN predators’ playbook to instigate a personal relationship under the guise of mentorship. The suit claims it was part of a pattern from the 42-year-old, who parted ways with ESPN in November. Lawrence says she was warned by others that Coachman was one of the men at ESPN who was notorious for sexual harassment.

WWE, who employs Coachman as an analyst on Monday Night Womens T. J. Logan Jersey Raw, said it was looking into the situation.

Cowboys trade for Olawale, swap late-round picks with Raiders

Game Womens Marco Estrada Jersey
The Dallas Cowboys landed fullback Jamize Olawale in a trade with the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday. The Cowboys acquired Olawale and a 2018 sixth-round pick (No. 192 overall) from the Raiders in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick (No. 173 overall). Former Cowboys fullback Keith Smith signed with the Raiders on March 15, paving the way Jakub Voracek Youth jersey for Dallas to reacquire Olawale.
Women's Nike New England Patriots #23 Patrick Chung White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
Just seeing what he does on and off the field would be really big for myself.

The Giants were set to meet with Allen on Friday night, but they already have a head-start in building a relationship, as new head coach Pat Shurmur met Allen at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

Coach Shurmur is a super bright mind, I like him a lot, Allen said. Sat down with him for a little bit. He’s a really good dude and if I was fortunate enough to play under him I’d be super stoked.

Pugh lasted through the initial signing flurry, but did not stay without a team for long, agreeing to terms Friday night with the Cardinals. It is a five-year deal worth just over $45 million, according to NFL Network.

The Giants took Pugh with the 19th overall pick in 2013, hoping he would solve their problem at offensive tackle, but it turned out he was better suited inside at guard. He ended up starting games at every spot on the line but center, settling in at left guard the past three years.

None of those teams reached the playoffs last year, of course. But here’s how this can work in New England’s favor – the aforementioned teams need a lot more than just a single players’ services, deeming some talent on their roster expendable so they can build through younger, less expensive depth. Every team in the NFL has talent, some more than others of course, but all teams have players who can play for anyone, anywhere.

It’s known as parity, and that’s precisely what the NFL has worked toward for a long time. Competitive parity. So how do teams separate themselves into winners and losers?
Enter the Patriots, who scoop and score with some veterans because they’ve outlived their usefulness elsewhere, or outpriced themselves in the market. Maybe they’ve previously made some money – and right now, all they want to do is play for a contender. They want to win. And work toward one more big money deal if they can.

Raiders have reached agreement with Tank Carradine

The Raiders are padding their defensive line by agreeing to a free-agent deal with former 49ers defensive end Tank Carradine, according to a report from The Sacramento Bee.

Carradine reportedly visited the Raiders’ facility in Alameda on Thursday but left without signing a contract. He would be the first outside defensive lineman acquired in this free agency period by the Raiders, who also re-signed their own defensive tackle Justin Ellis to a three-year contract.

Winning the offseason is only important if a team can translate its transactions into regular-season victories. Otherwise, the process is pointless.

Some will succeed in this endeavor. Others will fail. But every team is looking for opportunities to improve its roster through free agency.

A year ago, the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Calais Campbell to a four-year, $60 million contract. Campbell provided the best season of his career and helped mold the Jaguars into Super Bowl contenders. The opposite happened after the Cleveland Browns made Kevin Zeitler the league’s high-paid guard (at the time). Zeitler’s play didn’t amount to much on a 0-16 roster featuring an unprepared rookie quarterback.

Pugh played both left guard and right tackle in his time with the Giants. Health, not his overall performance, has been the biggest question mark associated with Pugh.

He ended the 2017 season on injured reserve with a back injury and has missed 13 games over the last two seasons.

Teams search far and wide for quality starting left tackles. Teams that find them pay them handsomely. Teams that don’t must overpay to get one.

In that sense, it’s understandable that the Giants wrote a big check to lure Nate Solder out of New England. He’ll lock down the left tackle position and give New York a piece to build around on the offensive line.

But the Giants paid a big price to acquire a 29-year-old left tackle who is good but far from great. Solder is now the highest-paid offensive tackle (in average annual value) in the NFL, and he has as many Pro Bowl appearances as you and I. In an era of watered-down Pro Bowl selections, that’s kind of incredible.

Obviously, the Giants didn’t love the incoming class of offensive tackles and decided to move aggressively for the top option in free agency. Still, it’s unlikely that Solder will live up to the expectations of his massive new deal.patriots_380

Mets reportedly add lefty Jason Vargas to pitching staff

The Mets and left-handed starting pitcher Jason Vargas have agreed to terms on a two-year, $16 million contract that also includes $1.5 million each year in innings-based incentives, FanRag Sports is reporting.
Garrett Grayson Youth Limited Black Jersey: Nike NFL New Orleans Saints Vapor Untouchable Home #18
Per MLB.com, For most of the offseason, the Mets brushed aside the idea of adding a starting pitcher, preferring to focus on infield and bullpen depth. But an abnormally quiet market kept them engaged, particularly in a tier of arms that included Vargas, Andrew Cashner and Jaime Garcia. Waiting for a ‘pressure point’ in the market, the Mets signed Vargas one day after the other two agreed to terms elsewhere. Cashner Womens Glover Quin Jersey has agreed to a two-year deal with the Orioles, and Garcia is on his way to Toronto.

The tight end’s renegotiated contract with the Dolphins was due to count $6.6 million against the cap in 2018.

By releasing him, Miami will recoup all of that and carry no dead money.

Now several years removed from his best football, Thomas won’t get a blockbuster deal again.

But he’s still among the top free agent tight ends on the market with Jimmy Graham already landing with the Green Bay Packers.

Thomas is still a talented enough contributor to quickly find his fourth landing spot in five years, but don’t expect to see the 2014 version of the tight end again.

There is no reason why Jake Arrieta or J.D. Martinez or any of these guys should have to sign a one-year deal. That’s ridiculous, Lester told ESPN. There is too much money in the game. There’s money there to be spent and for whatever reason it’s not being spent.

J. Lester: There is no reason why Jake Arrieta or JD Martinez or any of these guys should have to sign a one year deal. That’s ridiculous. There is too much money in the game. There’s money there to be spent and for whatever reason its not being spent.

Arrieta, Lester’s teammate the last three years, remains on the market despite the fact he has been among the league leaders in innings pitched, strikeouts and ERA over those campaigns.

J.D. Martinez is also available despite hitting 105 home runs over the last three seasons. The free-agent market has been slow, no question, and star players are still available. Lester wanted to make that clear.

Fanatics owner Michael Rubin wants to buy Panthers, report says

Another candidate has emerged to buy the Panthers.
Men's Julius Erving Authentic White Adidas Jersey: NBA Brooklyn Nets #32 Home
Michael Rubin, the owner of Fanatics apparel, is a Ivan Provorov Authentic Jersey serious bidder to become the new owner of the NFL franchise, ESPN reported.

Elite Mens Dale Hawerchuk Jersey Because Tennessee is looking good on the front line of its back end, there’s no real desperation here. But there are enough issues for the Titans to consider reeling in a big fish. Depth is a weakness, with Brice McCain unsigned and LeShaun Sims coming off a season-ending hamstring injury. Neither was all that effective in coverage last season. Ryan also struggled a bit and ended 2017 with an ankle injury.

The Titans could go after the Patriots’ durable Malcolm Butler to play opposite Jackson; they then could move Ryan to his more comfortable role in the slot. The Redskins’ Bashaud Breeland also was a strong No. 2 last season working with Josh Norman and Kendall Fuller.

Byard had eight interceptions last season, but the rest of the team produced only four. The Titans also gave up plenty of big pass plays. If they choose to spend on a top veteran corner, their promising pass coverage can turn into a strength. It still makes more sense, however, for Tennessee to put offense first with its free-agency budget.

More than 15,000 former NFL players have filed for benefits under a $1 billion settlement reached in a class-action suit against the NFL. Co-defendant Riddell, which manufactured helmets used in the league between 1989 and 2014, was not part of the 2015 settlement and continues to contest the suit.

The Globe found that, from those Patriots teams that won Super Bowls in 2002, 2004 and 2005, 42 of the roughly 100 players claim to have suffered brain-injury symptoms caused by repetitive blows to the head in games and practices.

Jered Weaver Authentic Jersey Among those players were defensive backs Lawyer Milloy and Randall Gay. The 35-year-old Gay, who is now an attorney, told the Globe he believes football-related injuries have led to depression issues.

There are days when I just wake up and don’t want to be around anybody,” Gay said. I just want to be in a room by myself, not doing anything, not even watching TV, and I can’t explain what’s going on.”

Marcus Davenport and UTSA football grew together. Now he’s likely a 1st-round pick

The very first question fielded by pass rusher Marcus Davenport during his media availability Saturday at the NFL Combine was about the motivation he draws as a player from UTEP rather than one from a more established program in a stronger conference.

And this part’s not trolling, per se, but it’s further illustration of how little Chubb cares about appearances when he’s on the field.

Only play the video below if you’re not squeamish and are OK seeing a deformed extremity:

That’s just his thing. He gets in the quarterback’s head, and it works. So why stop it? I’m not complaining, former NC State defensive tackle Justin Jones said.

It wasn’t just a call used to fill time during the broadcast, it came with a promise. Sanders said after they got off the call he was going to give Griffin his personal number, and urged him to call if he wanted to talk about anything, or get some advice.

It was more than enough for fantasy managers to cast an eye back to the date Elliott had core muscle surgery and was declared out for five to six weeks. It was three weeks ago, so that means he has two maybe three weeks of recovery left. The Flyers offer more than enough fantasy value for their goaltender to be rostered, and Elliott will probably return to his workhorse status when healthy. It means that you could William Gay Jersey circle March 20 on your calendar for a possible pickup – at that point, he’ll either be back imminently, or within a week.

Sheary, Crosby lead Penguins past Flyers and into 1st place

The Kings (36-25-5) have had four days to recover from a stunning 5-3 defeat to the Chicago Blackhawks last Saturday afternoon at Staples Center. The defeat to the Central Division’s last place team snapped a three-game winning streak and was due to undisciplined play which led to four Chicago third-period goals in a game that Los Angeles clearly controlled after two periods.

Los Angeles coach John Stevens normally stoic in his post season press conferences was visibly angered at his team play in the final period which included an unsportsmanlike penalty to Drew Doughty that keyed the Chicago comeback.

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.
