Russell Wilson Jersey delivers parting gift to Yankees players

FORT MYERS, Fla. As a parting gift to his baseball family, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson gave Yankees players an autographed NFL football.

Wilson was in camp for a six-day stint, which included an at-bat Friday pinch-hitting for Aaron Judge, no less in which he struck out.

After botching a sure double play ball against the Tigers on Wednesday with a casual glove flip that failed, Gleyber Torres started a crisp 4-6-3 double play in the second inning with a fundamentally correct catch and toss.

The Notre Dame guard is projected as a top-10 pick. Some people believe he might be the best overall player in this draft. On Thursday, he spoke to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine and recalled that he might not have always been so relaxed behind a microphone.

My freshman year of college, I was very nervous in front of the camera, Nelson said. I didn’t like it too much. I was sweating, trying to wipe my forehead because it was all sweaty. Over the years of college, I’ve gotten used to it, and I’m a lot more comfortable in front of the camera and in front of all of you guys.

Nelson did not just put on a good show in front of the media, he also has impressed scouts, coaches and executives here. He bench-pressed 225 pounds 35 times on Thursday. Nelson, who is from Holmdel, NJ, is viewed as the best offensive lineman in this draft and someone who could be a plug-and-play starter as a rookie.

Elite Calvin Pickard Jersey The Jets are a logical destination for Nelson if they sign Kirk Cousins in free agency, removing themselves from the quarterback derby in the draft. They desperately need to begin rebuilding their offensive line after patching it together in recent years. The last time the Jets used a premium pick on an offensive lineman was in 2010, when the team took Vlad Duccasse in the second round.

Doyel: Chris Ballard cashes in on trade, now must make it pay off in NFL draft

This is why Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard has been so quiet: This trade, a shocker, as all the best trades tend to be. While NFL free agency was happening in other cities with such happy noise, Ballard and the Colts have been quiet for just this moment, when he could jump on a table and scream:

Tomorrow The Colts have to turn those picks into great players. Whiff on the sixth overall selection, and the Colts screwed up. But here’s something I want you to consider: I wouldn’t be surprised if the Colts get Bradley Chubb anyway.

You know Chubb, the North Carolina State defensive end we’ve been in love with since well before the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, when Chubb put on a charming show at his news conference and then put up monster numbers in physical testing. He’s every inch of 6-4, every pound of 270, and he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.69 seconds. On the vertical leap he elevated 36 inches. In his spare time, when he’s not sacking NFL quarterbacks, maybe he’ll compete in the NBA Slam-Dunk Competition.

The Vikings took Patterson. Patterson’s career to this point has been a mixed bag. One of the top athletes in the 2013 draft, the Tennessee product never quite panned out as a go-to No. 1 receiver. He has not missed a game in five seasons, but he has never cracked 600 offensive snaps in a single season. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder has turned himself into more of a gadget receiver as well as one of the game’s best special teamers. Here’s what the Patriots are getting in Patterson…

Patterson has solidified himself as one of the NFL’s best kick-returners. In five seasons, he’s ranked as the top returner in terms of average yards per return three times. He’s never been outside of the top 10 in the league in that category.patriots_092

Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler Jersey undergoes stomach injections to promote bone strength

Mets starting pitcher Zack Wheeler has suffered a number of serious arm injuries over the last three-plus years, and Sunday he revealed a painful approach to remedy the situation.
Women's Majestic Seattle Mariners #2 Jean Segura Replica White Fashion Cool Base MLB Jersey
I was happy with where I was at last year before Leo Komarov Youth jersey my arm trouble started creeping up on me, Wheeler said. I felt happy and excited to be healthy and out there and pitching well, and going out there every fifth day and then that sort of started sneaking up on me, derailed my season.

I look at it as win-win-win for everybody as it relates to this dynamic. The players that end up coming to our camp, they are going to be preparing for the championship season just as if they were in spring training with one of the 30 teams.

It’s a complete benefit to the players and organizations that end up signing the players.

In departure, Ndamukong Suh Jersey robs Dolphins of success once promised

Ndamukong Suh knew what was coming before the sun had even risen on the West Coast.
Men's Nike Elite Kenneth Dixon Baltimore Ravens White Jersey: NFL #30 Road
While apparently heading to an early Monday morning workout in his hometown of Portland, Suh posted a cryptic Twitter video.

Elite Womens Ben Revere Jersey The Cowboys never planned to let the breakout pass-rusher, coming off a 15-sack season, get close to the market. They fell back on the franchise tag before hammering out the contract both sides know needs to get done.

This position could have as much flux for the Vikings as QB, but like QB, there are some strong alternatives on the market.

The Vikings gave Linval Joseph a worthy contract extension last summer, and he delivered another monster run-stopping season. Behind him in the rotation, however, there was a big drop-off. Tom Johnson faded as a 33-year-old starter and will be a free agent. Shamar Stephen, their busiest reserve at nose, is also unsigned for Marcus Williams Youth jersey 2018.

With Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer, the team has had a good eye for loading up on defensive depth in the draft. If the Vikings want to spend some here, the Panthers’ Star Lotulelei is likely to fit their budget better than the Seahawks’ Sheldon Richardson would. The Raiders’ Justin Ellis and the Titans’ DaQuan Jones would be adjusting to new schemes, but they have upside in the Vikings’ 4-3.

Jersey Here is a position-by-position roundup of rumors regarding the most notable potential signings and deals, including the many trades that already are set to become official.

Rarely does a playoff team flip a switch so hard, but Kansas City did, and it did so rather successfully. It started with trading Alex Smith and anointing Patrick Mahomes as the new starting QB. Gone are Marcus Peters, Derrick Johnson and Albert Wilson. Arriving are Kendall Fuller, Anthony Hitchens and Sammy Watkins.

Fullerend up being better than Peters all-around, and he will be much less of a headache for coach Andy Reid. Hitchensmake a ton of plays like Johnson did for many years, and at 25, he’s a decade younger. Wilson had flashes as a complementary weapon to Tyreek Hill, but Watkins is capable of winning a track meet with Hill while streaking downfield to catch passes from Mahomes’ cannon. Reid’s team need a reboot, and the Chiefs 2.0 are looking good.

Bradley Chubb Jersey isn’t just a potential No. 1 pick. He’s also one of football’s most daring towel thieves.

Chubb likes to play head games with opposing players. Several times during his college career at NC State, that meant going up to guys on the other team 锟斤拷 usually quarterbacks 锟斤拷 and stealing the hand towels that were tucked into their pants.

Elite Rene Robert Jersey Why do teams like the tag? It gives them control over a star player’s future and some flexibility and time to work out a long-term Reggie White Youth jersey deal. Plus, that whole loss of leverage thing that players hate? Well, that works in teams’ favor when negotiating contracts.

So that’s why you’ll see teams slapping tags on players as soon as they’re allowed to do so. It’s also why you may see Bell hold out again after the Steelers chose to tag him for a second time.

Are there players who can’t be tagged? Yes, but it’s rare. This year, free-agents-to-be Drew Brees and Nate Solder have clauses in their contracts blocking the franchise tag from being applied. Brees, who has been given the franchise tag twice in his career, will almost certainly re-sign with the Saints. The Patriots will also try to lock down left tackle Solder, but he could hit the open market.

Rajon Rondo swats Celtics over Isaiah Thomas tribute video

Rajon Rondo’s Celtics Pride surfaced in a big way Tuesday night as he rejected the idea the man who succeeded him in Boston merited a tribute video.

Reporters got Rondo talking about Isaiah Thomas, who was slated to be honored by the Celtics on Feb. 11 when he comes to TD Garden with the Cavaliers. That’s the same night Boston is retiring Paul Pierce’s No. 34. Thomas took the Celts off the hook Tuesday when he said he didn’t want a video that night.

Rondo, who has made stops in Dallas, Sacramento, Chicago and New Orleans following his exit from Beantown, put the C’s on a different hook. He seemed offended the team would recognize someone who only played there 2 1/2 years and only advanced to the Eastern Conference finals (a C’s loss last season to the Cavaliers).

“How we get the two points, that’s more important right now,” said Rittich, who bounced back after a six-game stretch during which he went 1-4-1 and allowed 24 goals.

“Yeah, it’s big for me right now,” he added. “I had a couple, I’m not sure if it was bad, but the scores were terrible. Yeah, it’s a nice comeback.”

Rittich’s only blemish was allowing Casey Nelson’s goal in the closing moments.

For the Celtics, Thursday night was simple: Without their starting point guard they didn’t protect the basketball. Boston averages 14 turnovers per game, but they had 14 turnovers in the first half alone and finished with 19. Coach Brad Stevens was less than thrilled with his team’s performance.

“We stink,” Stevens told TNT after the third quarter. “The first three quarters we’ve stunk.”

Boston’s 80 points was a season-low and their worst offensive performance since Dec. 15, 2015 when they were held to 77 points by the Cavaliers.

Speaking of the Cavs, they were up 63-40 in the second quarter to the worst team in the league, but for the second time in three games they blew a lead of 20 points or more.

Luckily for Cleveland, Isaiah Thomas made two free throws with 11 seconds left to give Cleveland a lead they would not relinquish. Considering this was just Cleveland’s fourth win in their last 13 games, James took the victory for what it was and nothing more.

Russell Westbrook Jersey will not be punished for shoving fan, report says

Russell Westbrook will not be punished for shoving a fan after the Thunder’s 127-124 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday, according to ESPN.
Youth Nike Arizona Cardinals #43 Haason Reddick Game White NFL Jersey
In what can best be described as a bizarre incident, after Nuggets guard Gary Harris hit a 3-pointer as time expired to give Denver the win, a fan got into Westbrook’s face as the reigning MVP walked off the court.

The Lakers guard began the season rated 89 Overall and now stands Authentic Tyrell Williams Jersey at 82 after being traded to his third team in less than a year. Compared to the 2016-17 season, Thomas has seen his points per game cut in half due in large part to a career-low shooting percentage.

Marc Gasol (minus-4 to 85), Paul George (minus-3 to 88) and Andrew Wiggins (minus-5 to 81) have also taken a significant hit to their attributes over the course of the season.

Game Mens Carlos Lee Jersey Get the two big bench guys clicking. The Bucks have the worst bench of any likely playoff team, but there’s hope that they can change that. Guard Malcolm Brogdon will be out until late March with a torn quad tendon, and forward Jabari Parker is just returning from knee surgery. If the Bucks can get Parker and Brogdon healthy and effective by the time the postseason starts, they might have just enough depth to limit their disadvantage among their reserves.

Kaepernick has been jobless since opting out of his contract with the 49ers last March. He became a controversial figure when he began kneeling during the national anthem last August to protest police brutality against people of color and other racial injustices.

Several NFL players followed Kaepernick’s lead by either kneeling, sitting, or raising a fist during the anthem. Players like Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters, Eagles corner Malcolm Jenkins and 49ers safety Eric Reid continued their protests this past season.

Bryant, who openly criticized President Donald Trump after his sons of bitches comments in September about protesting NFL players, thinks Kaepernick’s movement has a place in the NBA.

From my experience in the locker room, it doesn’t seem like any of the players that I played with certainly would have had an issue with that, Bryant told The Undefeated. I think we understand this is a free country. I think we have the right to peaceful protest.

NFL trade rumors: Dolphins give WR Jarvis Landry Jersey agent OK to seek trade

Even though Miami placed the franchise tag on wide receiver Jarvis Landry last week, it doesn’t mean he will remain in Miami.
Men's Adidas Sergei Fedorov Authentic Black NHL Jersey: Detroit Red Wings #91 1917-2017 100th Anniversary
According to a report by NFL Network confirmed by ESPN, the Dolphins have given permission to Landry and his representatives to seek a trade.

At least two teams have already communicated interest in a deal with the wide receiver, including the Bears. According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are seeking a draft pick or player in exchange for Landry.

Oh, Grizzlies. You’re lucky that you’re playing the tanking Mavericks in this red-alert game, but we still expect you to be a tad tired throughout, mostly because this is your fifth game in eight days, your third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set. You’ll host the Utah Jazz on March 9, then head out afterward for Dallas to take on a Dallas squad that will enter this game with a three-day rest advantage.

The Wizards will play in New Orleans on March 9, then head out immediately after — losing an hour in the process — for Miami, where they’ll close out a back-to-back set less than 24 hours after facing New Orleans and play your third game in five days. The Heat will enter this Womens Ronde Barber Jersey game with a one-day rest advantage.

At the NFL Scouting Combine Thursday, coach Pete Carroll was pressed about whether he would give his blessing for his star quarterback to play in a Grapefruit League game with the Yankees, but he wasn’t willing to give a straight answer. Instead, he gave a scouting report highlighting areas Wilson could improve his baseball game.

Elite Kids Demaryius Thomas Jersey So far he’s not doing a great job going with the pitches away from him, and we’re hoping that he’s going to start putting the ball into right field a bit more and going with the pitch, Carroll said while trying to hold back a smile. Aside from that, the curve ball is still giving him a problem like it always did back in the day, so we’ll see what happens.

While Carroll’s scouting report may have been a creative way to deflect a question he didn’t want to answer, Carroll did offer some support saying he didn’t think there was anything wrong with Wilson training with the Yankees during the offseason.

Aqib Talib Jersey job ‘in jeopardy’ as Broncos prepare to make cap space

Aqib Talib could find himself out of a job.
Men's Mitchell and Ness 1942 Philadelphia Phillies #3 Chuck Klein Replica Grey Throwback MLB Jersey
The veteran cornerback’s position is in jeopardy as the Broncos prepare to create cap space to acquire a new quarterback, Ian Rapoport of NFL Insider reported.

Aqib Talib’s roster spot is certainly one that is in jeopardy, Rapoport said. I would not be surprised if the Broncos had some talks about potentially trading him this week. … He’s got a big contract, but he’s still a very, very good player and teams know that. They have seen the film; they’ve watched him for years. His play really has not dropped off despite the fact that he’s gotten older.

Limited Mens Akiem Hicks Jersey Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid, a sharp-tongued talker and expert social media troll, was the most popular answer when players were asked who is the league’s premier active trash-talker. He even got the vote of Andre Drummond, the Detroit Pistons’ All-Star big man who has been a frequent target of Embiid, who publicly criticized the shooting and defensive ability of Drummond, who then shot back with a jab of Embiid’s durability.

Rivers, selected fourth overall by the Giants in the 2004 NFL Draft, has played all 14 seasons with the Chargers. In his career, he’s thrown 342 touchdowns and 166 interceptions with a 94.6 career QB rating.

Rivers, a seven-time Pro Bowler and 2013 comeback player of the year, served as Drew Brees’ understudy for two seasons before taking over the Chargers’ offense.

Lynn took over as Chargers head coach last season, leading them to a 9-7 record, good for second in the AFC West. Though Lynn is famous for coaching running backs, he and Rivers formed a strong bond last year, which resulted in a nice bouce-back season for Rivers after throwing 21 interceptions in 2016.

Women's Nike Houston Texans #9 Shane Lechler Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
The 49ers met with Foster after his arrest and while Lynch wouldn’t get into details about his conversation with the linebacker, he did say the team made clear what the expectations were for its players.

Zach Parise USA Jersey The context, in a broad sense, of what we discussed with Reuben, is just our expectations for him and our expectations for all of our players, Lynch said, according to The San Jose Mercury News. We have a high standard. I think we made that very clear. We remain Womens Taylor Lewan Jersey in communication, but a lot of that’s gonna remain private between us because of a lot of things such as the ongoing legal matter and protocols that are in place.

That nearly assures that the Senators will take some money back in a trade, so let’s begin there: Ottawa will acquire a roster player with a robust cap hit who hopefully isn’t signed through 2022. It will receive at least one first-round pick, and likely more than that. One assumes it will receive a blue-chip prospect as well.

Whatever team gets Erik Karlsson will be getting a generational defenseman who could be the difference between challenging for a championship and winning one. Or, dropping down a level, going from being a burgeoning contender to being a legitimate threat.

Fletcher Cox has been named second- or first-team All-Pro in three of his six seasons. Brandon Graham, a second-team All-Pro last season, led the team in sacks while remaining one of the Eagles’ best run defenders. Rookie Derek Barnett has played beyond his years and veteran Chris Long has defied his, and both are playing as backups to Graham and Vinny Curry.
