Nick Foles Jersey: I’m excited to wear that Eagles jersey for at least one more year


Nick Foles remains in Philadelphia with a restructured deal. But with Carson Wentz returning, it begs the question of how long the Super Bowl MVP will stay around as a backup?
Youth Philadelphia Flyers #17 Wayne Simmonds Reebok Orange New Third Authentic NHL Jersey
While promoting his new book, Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure, and Deacon Jones Jersey Overcoming the Odds, Foles appeared on FS1 sounding as if he expects to play elsewhere by next season.

Thus, Foles is rooting for Wentz to stay healthy — and in the starting lineup — all season. That obviously would leave Foles on the bench all season.

Carson is a tremendous player, Foles said. He’s going to be a great player in this league for a long time. I think just having those open discussions in the locker room, starting with your friendship first and then your teammates and genuinely caring for one another. When he’s out there, he knows I’m not like vying for him to get hurt or something like that. I want him to succeed. I want him to stay healthy the entire season. I want him to have a great career. Even at the expense of me not playing. But that’s where I’ve got to put my ego aside and say, ‘Hey, this is what’s best for the team.’ I can still be a leader in the locker room but just in my lane. That’s very important. It becomes tricky. You know how it is. It gets a little tricky.

I don’t know where he gets that from. As long as I’ve been here, I’ve never bragged before or after a game, Cooper said at the time.

It appears Cooper had every right to be confused. Norman told NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney on his Mike Daniels Youth Jersey Glass Case of Emotion podcast that a teammate conned him into thinking Cooper and Crabtree had made boisterous claims they never made. Norman said it was a Redskins defensive lineman than went to Alabama that told him of the comments Cooper and Crabtree never made. The only player that fits that bill is Jonathan Allen.

Basically, I found out that he lied to me about the whole thing. So I’m like, ‘He didn’t say all that?’ Norman said, via Mark Inabinett of

Norman said Allen replied: Nah, man. I just really wanted to win, man.

For Norman it was the equivalent of disparaging water to Bobby Boucher.

Bradley Chubb finalizing contract with Broncos Thursday


The Broncos are one of the dwindling number of teams with unsigned picks from the 2018 draft, but they are set to move closer to having everyone under contract.
Women's Majestic San Diego Padres #24 Rickey Henderson Replica Green Salute to Service Cool Base MLB Jersey
Mike Klis of KUSA reports that first-round pick Bradley Chubb is finalizing his contract with the team on Thursday. Chubb, who was the fifth overall pick in April, will sign a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth season.

That comes on the heels of a previous report from Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the Raiders are wary that a new suspension for Bryant may be imminent. Bryant missed the entire 2016 season for repeated violations of the league’s substance-abuse policy.

It is possible for a player to violate the substance-abuse policy without failing or missing a test. For example, when Bryant was reinstated following his 2016 suspension, he reportedly was required to work with Bryan Little Youth Jersey a clinician regarding his offseason activities. Failure to do so could be considered a violation of the substance-abuse policy even if he hasn’t failed a test.

The Raiders sent a third-round draft pick to the Steelers to acquire Bryant this offseason.

Herremans: I think if you watch me play basketball, you’d be impressed. I feel like I move well on the basketball court. I’m not restricted to robotic technical movements, which a lot of offensive linemen are. But of course I get relegated to center all the time.

You want to show the veterans that you’re not afraid of anything, and they you’ll Wil Lutz Jersey go to battle with them like they’ll go to battle with you, Parker said. It’s more a matter of gaining respect than proving you’re the toughest guy out there.

The Raiders used a third-round pick on Parker after spending a first-rounder on Kolton Miller. They expect the offensive tackles to be the long-term answers at the position.

They’re smart kids. They listen, center Rodney Hudson said. They’re learning and working and asking questions, which I think is always important for young guys. To ask questions about where they can do better, and both of those guys do that.

Castonzo: People immediately notice. It’s hard to go incognito anywhere as a group. But if we go out, Andrew [Luck], he takes all that [attention], because people don’t care about us when we’re out with him. It’s kind of nice [laughs].

Jay Ajayi going into Eagles camp as No. 1 option


Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi expressed excitement in late May on potentially absorbing a lead role in the backfield.
Youth Jose Altuve Replica Grey Majestic Jersey: MLB Houston Astros #27 Road Cool Base
Ajayi isn’t new to a Johnathan Joseph Jersey workhorse role, as he produced 1,272 yards rushing and eight touchdowns on 260 attempts (4.9 yards per carry) for the Dolphins in 2016.

Nevertheless, the Eagles head coach also pointed out the offense will continue utilizing a backfield rotation depending on game situations.

I don’t think, though, that from a scheme standpoint it’s going to change much with a rotating running back room like we had last year with LeGarrette, and Jay and Corey, Pederson told reporters. I Ben Simmons Youth Jersey think there’s a time and a place for that. Each game is a little bit different.

With a strong showing in training camp, Ajayi could very well enter the regular season as the Eagle’s featured rusher.

But he will need to make the most of his touches when considering Pederson’s stance of utilizing all the backfield weapons at the team’s disposal.

Still, the Arizona Cardinals was something they liked and drafted Nkemdiche with the 29th overall pick in 2016.

Since then, Nkemdiche’s done nothing—unless you count ticking off his head coach as an accomplishment. In two years, Nkemdiche has all of 11 tackles without a sack. The next game he starts will be the first game he starts.

New Cardinals defensive coordinator Al Holcomb told Bob McManaman of AZ Central back in January that he feels there’s enough there to mold Nkemdiche into an effective NFL player.

From the little bit of film I’ve observed… he obviously, at times, jumps off the tape, he said. He’s got some ability…. We’re going to sit down and discuss some things and try to find out exactly what makes him tick. And as a coaching staff, we have to try to do the best thing that we can to get the most out of him and continue to develop his talents and get him on the field.

My first love was soccer. A lot of my coaches from back in the day would say that I could have been in Europe right now playing.


I was a lot better than the people that I played against — and I definitely had a little bit of that football demeanor on the field; I think I got a yellow card every other game. But at that age, you’re 13 years old, and to really make it big in soccer you have to go overseas — it was something that didn’t seem right to me at the time. I know I could have made it in soccer, but that just wasn’t the path for me.

I’m definitely faster and stronger than what I got to display last year. I’m hoping my body will really come back around and catch back up to me and I’ll be able to show that.

I want to be legendary. It’s really simple to me: When they mention guys like Jerry Rice and Cris Carter and Randy Moss, you want to be in that category. That’s the goal. It’s not just to play for a couple of years and have fun.

Because of Cabrera’s $30 million annual salary, Rodriguez claimed in her lawsuit last August that under Florida child-support laws she is due $100,000 month.

When the sides couldn’t agree on the monthly payment, a judge ruled in April that Cabrera should temporarily pay $12,000 monthly until Cabrera and Rodriguez could come to terms on the child support.

Before the lawsuit, Cabrera was paying $15,000 per month to Rodriguez, who his attorney characterizes as a gold-digger shaking down his client despite the fact they never were married.

According to the Free Press, since that temporary ruling, 26 more filings have been made in the case, almost one a day, as the two sides continued to feud: At issue for Rodriguez is Cabrera’s wealth and how much money he spends on the three children he has with his wife. [Rodriguez] maintains that her children are entitled to the same lifestyle as Cabrera’s children from his marriage and is seeking documents that show how much he spends on — among other things — their schooling, traveling, clothes and entertainment.

Tyrod Taylor: I’d love to see the Bills in the playoffs and knock them out


A Browns-Bills playoff game sounds like a farfetched scenario, but Tyrod Taylor can picture it.
Men's Adidas New York Rangers #3 James Patrick Premier Black 1917-2017 100th Anniversary NHL Jersey
Taylor, the Browns’ starting quarterback, told NFL Network that he’d love to see the Bills, his own team, in the playoffs — especially because he thinks he could be the one to end a Bills playoff run.

Things didn’t end the way I would have liked it to in Buffalo, Taylor said. We could possibly see those guys in the playoffs or we could knock those guys out of the playoffs. I would love that. That’s motivation I take to work with me every day.

I’m not worried about it, and neither is he, first-year head coach Pat Shurmur said. I Calvin Johnson Jersey look at a player that loves football. He’s out there right now doing his thing, and he wants to be here. As the coach and the player, that’s what we talk about it.

What I’m concerned about, as the coach, is my relationship with him, and him learning as much as he can through this offseason, so that when we get going, he’s ready to go. Our job as coaches is to get him trained up and put him on the field. That’s what we worry about. This isn’t the first time in the NFL we’ve talked about a player and a contract. We just keep moving. We keep developing our relationship, within what’s going on, and we move forward. That’s where it’s at.

Familia landed on the 10-day DL Friday with right shoulder soreness. He has registered a 2.48 ERA and 14 saves in 29 innings pitched this season.

New York has dealt with injuries throughout 2018. Familia joins Syndergaard as well as fellow Mets Yoenis Cespedes, Wilmer Flores, AJ Ramos and Juan Lagares on the DL.

The Mets have started 2018 with a 27-32 record. They’ve lost their last six games and 11 of their last 13. New York opened the season 11-1.

He’s also busy turning his random ideas into new business ventures. I think of these dumb inventions all the time, and I write them down in Evernote. Example? They should have emoji waffles. You don’t know which one it is until you toast it — it’s an egg wash or something. Eggo, get on that! Chris Chelios Jersey He also wants to develop a reality show called Stuck. It’s just people stuck in an elevator. And you record what they do for like, 20 minutes. (No bites on that one yet.)

One intrepid camper asked him if he was going to return to MetLife Stadium.

Not today, Beckham responded with a smile.

Who is Juan Soto? Fast facts about the Nationals’ teen phenom


Juan Soto introduced himself to the baseball world Wednesday night when he hit a pair of home runs for the Nationals against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium in a nationally televised game.
Premier Reebok Men's Duncan Keith Black Jersey - NHL #2 Chicago Blackhawks Practice 2015 Stanley Cup
So, just who is Juan Soto? Here are five fast facts about the teenager who’s crushing big-league pitching.

4. Soto entered the season as the No. 2-ranked prospect in the Nationals’ system. He has zoomed past No. 1 prospect Victor Robles, a 21-year-old outfielder who is injured at Triple-A Syracuse. Once Robles is ready to return to the majors (he made his debut last season), Washington’s outfield future will Josh Bynes Jersey be extremely Kemba Walker Youth Jersey bright.

5. Soto joined some select company with his two-homer performance. At 19 years, 231 days, he became the third-youngest player all time to hit two in a game on the road, according to STATS, Inc. research. The others? Mel Ott, who did it twice, and Ken Griffey Jr., who did it at… the old Yankee Stadium in 1989. Just a couple of Hall of Famers.

Foltynewicz wasn’t bothered by the injury in his bullpen session Saturday. But Atlanta decided to place him on the DL for precautionary reasons, according to a report from He is expected to return and start against the Orioles this weekend, the report says.

A healthy Richburg will help both the pass and run blocking. McGlinchey at first will provide steadiness and increased athleticism on the right side, and he projects well as Staley’s eventual replacement on the left. San Francisco had the No. 21 rushing attack in the NFL last season and also allowed 43 sacks, tied for 10th most. Garoppolo and McKinnon both will be beneficiaries of the upgrades on the line.

The 49ers needed to be great at the tackles and at center in order to make up for their deficiencies at guard. Left guard Laken Tomlinson is a weak link who is unsigned beyond 2018, and right guard Joshua Garnett, a 2016 first-rounder, has struggled to round into shape after missing all of last season with a knee injury. That has opened the door for free-agent journeyman Mike Person, who was with Shanahan in Atlanta, to be a stopgap.

Drafting Jake Locker eighth overall in 2011


How quickly do things move in this league? Jake Locker turned 30 on Friday, but the 2011 No. 8 overall pick hasn’t thrown an NFL pass in three-and-a-half years.
Men's Nike Elite Joe Flacco Baltimore Ravens Purple Jersey: NFL Drift Fashion #5 Home
Desperate for a franchise quarterback after Vince Young flamed out, the Titans were enticed by Locker’s cannon arm and overlooked the fact said cannon often missed its targets. They drafted Locker, figuring they could coach him up, but that never happened.

The Washington product completed just 57.5 percent of his passes over four ugly seasons, starting just 23 games before his injury-plagued career came to an end when he was 26.

On Feb. 12, 2018 vs. New York, McConnell posted 10 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists and six steals as he became the first 76er ever to post a triple-double off the bench (teammate Markelle Fultz accomplished the feat weeks later). In Philadelphia’s Game 4 Eastern Conference Semifinal victory over Boston, McConnell drew his first career playoff start and posted 19 points (9-12 FG), the most he’s totaled in a game in his NBA tenure.

The addition of West should immediately bolster a Saints running back group that will begin the regular season without Mark Ingram, who will serve a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Barring the addition of another running back, the Saints would have gone through the first four games with Alvin Kamara, Jonathan Williams, Trey Edmunds, Daniel Lasco and rookie Boston Scott.

The 5-foot-10, 225-pound West is set to join the group with five years of NFL experience. He entered the league in 2014 out of Towson as a third-round pick with the Authentic Brian Boyle Jersey Cleveland Browns before being traded to the Tennessee Titans in 2015. West then joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2015 Joe Sakic Authentic Jersey and spent three seasons with the club.

On his career, West has 1,816 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns on 465 attempts, averaging 3.9 yards per carry. He also has 344 yards receiving and two touchdowns on 51 career catches. West’s best season came in 2016 when he led the Ravens with a career-high 774 yards rushing.

Meanwhile, West wasn’t the only veteran free-agent running back to work out for the Saints on Wednesday.

Packers’ Mike McCarthy again excuses veterans from minicamp


Adhering to recent tradition, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy excused a group of veterans from this week’s three-day minicamp beginning Tuesday at Ray Nitschke Field. It marks the third straight year he has done so.

McCarthy told reporters Tuesday that 16 veterans, including quarterback Aaron Rodgers, are exempt from camp and start their summers early.

Each and every year we take a look at the roster, McCarthy said. But the other part of the focus, and really the focus for myself, is what goes on in these four practices for our young players.

While the decision to excuse the veterans is nothing new, the decision remains an interesting one in an era when McCarthy and his staff lament the practice restrictions of the league’s collective bargaining agreement. The Packers’ coaches and players routinely discuss the importance of each rep given the scarcity of allotted practice time, and allowing the veterans to miss the mandatory minicamp could be viewed as increasing that strain.

The Texas A&M transfer completed 18 of 21 passes last season while serving as Mayfield’s backup.

Mayfield became the second OU quarterback to go No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft since 2010, joining Sam Bradford, and Landry Jones, who started 49 games for OU from 2009-12, was a fourth-round pick of the Steelers in 2013.

Whether you get a pat on the back or told how great you are or not, you’ve got to win, because the rest doesn’t last for very long. It doesn’t mean a lot to me in April or May. I say let’s win in the fall.

That requires a firm foundation. So, Cousins has spent these months and weeks getting to know his teammates and an offense now directed by new coordinator John DeFilippo.

In April, Cousins hosted receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen in Atlanta, where he spends his offseason, for throwing sessions, golf and to watch the NCAA basketball championship. Cousins and Rudolph have attended playoff hockey games, concerts and also hit the links. Cousins takes his offensive linemen to dinner. Earlier this month, he got on the grill at the extended-stay hotel that had housed him and numerous teammates and cooked for them on his last day there before moving into his new home.

And on the field, Cousins has brought an intensity that has fueled teammates.

Danny Duffy can blow away hitters with a mid-90s fastball.


He’s learning that his softer stuff can be just as effective.
Adam Gotsis Youth Limited Black Jersey: Nike NFL Denver Broncos 2016 Salute to Service #99
Duffy pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, and the Kansas City Royals snapped a six-game skid with a 2-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday.

Duffy (3-6) struck out a season-high 10 and walked three.

The rain picked up in the seventh, but there were no stoppages and the Brewers’ offense was stymied after outscoring Philadelphia 24-7 in the first two games of the New Orleans Saints Womens Jersey series.

Brewers: Eric Thames (left thumb) started in left field for Triple-A Colorado Springs in what was expected to be Kawann Short Youth Jersey his final rehab game. He could be activated Monday.

Phillies: Slumping 3B Maikel Franco, who also has been ill, according to Kapler, was out of the lineup for a fourth straight game.

It’s not that Boone hasn’t escaped his own criticism, however. In an April 1 loss to the Blue Jays, the Yankees blew a 4-1 lead as Justin Smoak hit a grand slam off David Robertson in the eighth inning after an intentional walk to Josh Donaldson had loaded the bases. The move was questionable if defendable (until it didn’t work): Robertson does have a sizable reverse platoon split and Donaldson is Donaldson, but loading the bases also leaves no margin for error. You could imagine the reaction before the papers went to press:

That’s the beauty of New York, whether you’re a player or manager: the unconditional love and passion when things are going well, mixed with the expectation that things better always go well. Boone has the perfect demeanor for the job. He’s enthusiastic and media-friendly, two traits that weren’t among his predecessor Joe Girardi’s strong suits, and he’s going to be an excellent communicator with his players. In this era with few stolen bases, few hit-and-runs, the death of the pitchout and bunt, that’s the manager’s primary job, other than not screwing up the bullpen moves.

Luck still hasn’t thrown a football since his brief return to practice in October.


He has been out since the 2016 season trying to recover from shoulder surgery, and while there’s nothing but optimism on Luck emanating from the Colts’ building, the same was true this time last year. If he starts engaging this week in football activity we haven’t seen from him in the past year and a half, it’ll be easier to join the Colts in their outward optimism.

The Jets are bringing along No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold in a similar way; he’s behind both Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater. McCown is a known quantity, and Bridgewater has looked good in his continued effort to recover from his devastating 2016 knee injury. But the fans are going to want to know about Darnold, who has to be the future, and whether he has a shot to start right away.

How quickly are they picking up the new stuff?

Coaching staff changes across the league mean new principles and new schemes Butch Goring Jersey that will take time to learn. Watch, for example, the Giants: Head coach Pat Shurmur is installing a new offense, and defensive coordinator James Bettcher is revamping the defense. Does one of those groups look worse than the other in team drills because the concepts on its side of the ball are more complex?

How does Cam Newton look under the guidance of new offensive coordinator Norv Turner in Carolina? What changes should we expect in the Steelers’ offense with Todd Haley gone? How different will the Packers’ defense look with Mike Pettine as coordinator? Can new Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur have the same success with Marcus Mariota that he and Sean McVay had with Jared Goff last year in L.A.?

Minicamp Jacob Markstrom Youth Jersey offers a glimpse at some of these new coaches and new concepts and how players are reacting to them.

Who enters the summer on the roster bubble?
