NFL Hall of Fame 2018: Randy Moss, Ray Lewis Jersey looking to get in on first ballot

Elite Kids Russell Wilson Jersey Cornerbacks Ty Law and Everson Walls are also competing, but many think Walls, in his final year of eligibility, will finally get his recognition. The most interesting player, in this writer’s opinion, is running back Edgerrin Andre Iguodala Jersey James. It’s not looking like there are a slew of current running backs who will ultimately make the Hall of Fame outside of someone like Frank Gore, and with Terrell Davis getting in, it could help James make his case for a spot.

The two senior finalists this year are linebacker Robert Brazile, formerly of the Houston Oilers, and guard Jerry Kramer, formerly of the Green Bay Packers. Bobby Beathard, a former general manager and personnel man (and grandfather to C.J. Beathard of the 49ers), is the only contributor finalist and should have no troubles making it.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 36 points and Patty Mills scored 20 for San Antonio. The Spurs lost for the sixth time in seven games despite the return of Aldridge, who missed the last two games before the All-Star break to rest his sore right knee. He looked strong Friday, hitting 13 of 23 shots and 12 of 14 free throws.

San Antonio could be without top player Kawhi Leonard for the rest of the season. Coach Gregg Popovich said earlier this week he would be surprised if Leonard, who has played just nine games due to a right quad tendinopathy injury, will return.

We’re a championship team. We’re not about to sit here and act like we’re this battered team that had a horrible season and we’re looking for any glimmer of hope, Green said. I understand we haven’t been as great as most people expect. We’re still a damn good basketball team so we don’t need no `but it’s a step in the right direction.’ You may get that out of someone but I don’t really roll like that.

Authentic Marcell Dareus Jersey Kevin Durant had 21 points and eight assists, Klay Thompson added 19 points, and Green contributed 13 points, seven rebounds, six assists and two steals.

Offensive Player of the Year: Gurley and Brown are the major favorites here. Other contenders include Le’Veon Bell and Kareem Hunt.

Defensive Player of the Year: Calais Campbell, Aaron Donald, Demarcus Lawrence, Cameron Jordan, and Jalen Ramsey are just a few of the top contenders in what should be a wide-open race.

Odell Beckham Jr. Jersey vows he’ll play ‘0’ snaps in preseason

Did Odell Beckham Jr. really vow Friday night he won’t play in any 2018 preseason games?
Men's Majestic Oakland Athletics #10 Marcus Semien Replica Green Salute to Service MLB Jersey
You can’t blame OBJ for being leery of preseason action. He suffered a left ankle sprain last Aug. 21 in a preseason game, on a low hit by a Browns DB. After missing the regular-season opener, he returned to play four games before breaking the same ankle in Week 5.

Beckham underwent season-ending surgery in October, and no timetable has been set for his return, so he could still be rehabbing during the 2018 preseason slate. Yet as the New York Daily News notes, it’s unlikely the Giants and Beckham have already decided to sit him the entire preseason, and if they have, that it would be announced in such odd fashion.

McShay then has the Raiders taking Virginia Tech’s Tremaine Edmunds at No. 10, who can also play off the line as a linebacker. While he has the Packers taking UTSA’s Marcus Davenport at No. 14, Kadar has Edmunds going to Green Bay 鈥?so we can probably expect both of these teams to be looking for pass rushers.

At No. 22, McShay has the Bills taking Da’Ron Payne, another bruising defensive tackle like Marcell Dareus. Dareus also happened to be an Alabama defensive tackle that the Bills drafted, so this one makes sense.

Authentic Mens Jeff Allen Jersey Ventrone had served as New England’s assistant special teams coach the past three seasons. As an undrafted college free agent from Villanova, Ventrone developed into a standout special-teams player himself while playing for New England (2005-08), Cleveland (2009-10) and San Francisco (2013-14).

McDaniels was reportedly set to bring Patriots special teams coach Joe Judge with him to Indianapolis. McDaniels, though, decided to return to New England as its Authentic Kirk Gibson Jersey offensive coordinator last week after verbally agreeing to become Colts head coach.

The Colts then moved onto Reich, a former Indianapolis assistant who was Philadelphia’s offensive coordinator. Judge is now expected to remain with the Patriots.

In other Colts coaching news, a source told Sporting News that Alan Williams also will be returning to Indianapolis to handle the secondary.

Report: Rays agree to 1-year, $4 million deal with OF Carlos Gomez Jersey

Game Mens Wilt Chamberlain Jersey The Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with outfielder Carlos Gomez, reported Wednesday.
Adidas NHL Men's Doug Gilmour Green Premier Jersey - #39 Calgary Flames Salute to Service
Gomez, who turned 32 in December, appeared in 105 games for Texas last season and was the primary center fielder after All-Star Ian Desmond left in free agency. Gomez is expected to play right field in Tampa.

The Orange’s thin roster accurately reflects its NCAA profile. A Feb. 5 win at Louisville is currently Syracuse’s only Group 1 victory and a pair of sub-100 losses to Wake Forest and Georgia Tech look like serious missed opportunities in mid-February. The Womens Tyler Ennis Jersey same applies to Wednesday’s home loss to N.C. State, which featured a late Orange rally before they simply ran out of gas. Hope remains in the form of four Group 1 games the rest of the way, with two at home (North Carolina and Clemson). Starting the closing stretch by topping inconsistent Miami in Coral Gables on Saturday would be quite helpful for Jim Boeheim’s crew.

Time is running out on the 14 teams above. Like Boise State, Colorado (falling at Washington State on Thursday), Mississippi State (stunned at Vanderbilt Wednesday), Oregon (also beaten at the buzzer at USC), SMU (losers of four in a row) and Maryland (whose bubble might have been popped by Nebraska on Tuesday) did themselves no favors this week. On the flip side, the Cornhuskers keep on winning, which they must continue to do with their weak schedule, while Georgia’s win at Florida put the Bulldogs back in the hunt.

Sam Miller: The premise we’re going with today is that we will see him sometime, but man is it hard to see it: Tim Tebow is miles and miles away from being good enough to play in the majors; he will almost certainly never get good enough to make the majors; if he played in the majors, it would be nothing more than a stunt, and Sandy Alderson, his general manager, is not a general manager known for treating official major league baseball games like a stunt.

We can’t know why Alderson said he thinks Tebow will make the majors — note that he used a lot of hedge words: think, guess, hope — but a reasonable explanation is the Mets want to make a lot of money by having Tebow in big league spring training, and the more seriously they persuade fans to take this, the more money they probably make.

The NFL is now the league that never sleeps.

Thanks to commissioner Roger Goodell’s vow to double overall revenue by 2027, the NFL is trying — and largely succeeding, if the draft’s TV ratings are any indication — to become a year-round sport with a “big” event each month.

That’s why the immediate aftermath of the Broncos’ victory over the Panthers in Super Bowl 50 last week will be just a temporary lull in the NFL’s jam-packed calendar.

But this is what TV, with ESPN establishing and sustaining the formula, has done and continues to do to sports. That, too, constitutes malice of forethought. Soon, those calling the shots will never be able to return sports to a place they’ve never been.

We’ve seen it dozens of times. Only occasionally, however, does it make sense: The unreturned kickoff just before the end of the first half.

Yet, it’s often seen but ignored on TV because that’s the time to promote the halftime show.

Sunday, the Jets, down 10-0, had three timeouts left but allowed the clock to run from 1:10 to :32 before Denver kicked a field goal to make it 13-0. CBS’ Trent Green, far better than most analysts, said what we were thinking: Why didn’t Todd Bowles call time with 1:10 left?

It’s too bad wide receiver Victor Cruz, released by the Bears, couldn’t revive his career in Chicago. Cruz was a terrific story and an exciting player for the Giants in 2011 and 2012. But he hasn’t been able to recapture that for several years now, and it’s fair to wonder if his NFL career is pretty much done.

In short, the Redskins would need Cousins to be a “truck” (QB capable of carrying his team with little-to-no support), when he really hasn’t shown the football world he can do that.

After Rex Ryan was fired last season, Lynn served as interim head coach for the Bills for the final game and was considered one of the front-runners for the job.

Lynn, though, said he never thought he was going to get the Bills job because of his association with Ryan and the assumption he was part of the culture Ryan brought to teams, despite how different his personality is from Ryan’s.

But Lynn, a long-time assistant deserving of his chance, got the Chargers job instead, and the Bills hired former Panthers assistant Sean McDermott.

“I’m where I want to be,” Lynn told reporters this week. “I interviewed there [in Buffalo], and they went a different direction. I didn’t think I was the favorite there anyway because how many times do you hire a guy from the staff when you fire the head coach? It doesn’t happen too often.’’

O’Leary repeats a rumor that Pats backup quarterback Doug Flutie Jersey once said he accidentally picked up Brady’s helmet during the 2005 season.

If there’s an open channel during the play itself, you can also alert the quarterback to open receivers he may not see.
Youth Nike Indianapolis Colts #27 Nate Hairston Limited Olive/Gold 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
He was amazed that the coaches kept right on speaking to Brady past the 15-second cutoff, right up until the snap, -according to O’Leary.

The voice in Tom Brady’s helmet was explaining the exact defense he was about to face.

Jordan is one of the worst picks ever. Trading up to take him at No. 3 was an epic mistake. They hit on Landry and Jay Ajayi came on last year, but there are far more misses than hits. Ryan Tannehill has not been spectacular, but has been solid.

Authentic Womens Howie Kendrick Jersey Lost in the enormity of the matchup, the subplot to the game is at the quarterback position, where Jared Goff, the Rams’ No. 1-overall draft pick in 2016, and the Eagles’ Carson Wentz, the No. 2-overall pick that year, go at it.

It’ll be fun to play against him, but I’m more excited to play their team, Goff said.

Garoppolo, who was acquired by the 49ers from the Patriots at the trade deadline, will make his second consecutive start Sunday, against the Texans, after leading his team to a win at Chicago last week.

Authentic Womens Mason Foster Jersey 49ers fans, who’ve been starved for Authentic Jhonas Enroth Jersey a few years for a winner, are buzzing about Garoppolo, some dreaming of him becoming another Joe Montana. Garoppolo quickly tried to tamp down those kinds of expectations.

The Titans’ hiring of Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel Jersey as head coach and the Colts’ expected hiring of Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels

A turbulent offseason that included the firing of Scot McCloughan as GM has given way to what feels like an unsettled season, given the uncertainty surrounding the future of two-time franchise-tagged QB Kirk Cousins. Even so, the Redskins could Tim Hardaway Youth jersey be pretty good. Pretty good, however, probably won’t be good enough in the rugged NFC East.

Some of that might have been overdramatized, but either way, Pederson has demonstrated a marked improvement in his second season, in all areas.

He’s a guy that’s calm, cool and collected. He doesn’t get mad often, but when he does … ooooh, man.

The NFL is now averaging 15.3 million viewers per game this season, down from 16.7 million last season, according to Nielsen.

That means the total audience watching all NFL games is down 120 million from last season.

NFL is ending its bizarre stand against Mike Tirico Jersey calling games

Congratulations, Mike Tirico. You’re now apparently qualified enough to call Thursday Night Football.
Women's Nike New York Jets #26 Marcus Maye Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
The drama surrounding Thursday night broadcasts began when NBC reportedly proposed Tirico, whom they signed away from ESPN last May, take over play-calling duties. In response, the NFL released a vague statement right before the season, stating its contract with NBC required the Sunday Night team 锟斤拷 which the statement referred to as the impressive pitch of specifically Al and Chris 锟斤拷 to cover Thursday nights, as well. Having NBC’s A-team call the games may have lent them a bit of credibility, perhaps important for short-week matchups that often featured terrible football.

It is up to NBC to determine who the talent is for both nights based on those parameters, the statement read.

With Michaels and Collinsworth already set to call Sunday night games, NBC was left with no other option and off Tirico went to cover the Rio Olympics, the Ryder Cup and Football Night in America 锟斤拷 the pregame show before Sunday Night Football.

Tirico has 26 years of experience in sports television having joined ESPN in 1991 as a SportsCenter anchor before taking over play-calling duties.

The poll also found that NFL fans generally had stronger opinions about the players’ antics 锟斤拷 people who did not identify as diehards tended to respond don’t know or no opinion more often when asked about political aspects of the game.

Gono was mentioned as the best offensive player at the NFLPA Bowl.

Matt Gono, OG, Wesley — He is a powerful run blocker with good technique. The 6-4, 305-pound lineman started 50 games at D-III Wesley and opened some eyes of NFL scouts in Pasadena with his ability to get to the second level.

P.J. Hall, DT, Sam Houston State — Hall is big and strong in the middle at 6-1, 310 with a good burst. He has a nice ability to collapse the pocket and was productive in the middle with 37 career sacks.

Young: Fact. George has his attention on two main things: (1) winning, and (2) getting the attention he feels he deserves as one of the premier all-around players in the league. And he has the opportunity for both in Oklahoma City. There’s clearly the connection to Los Angeles, and other destinations that could be attractive, but George has talked honestly about wanting to build in OKC alongside Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony.

So as a decision nears, the sensible solution could be to postpone it: sign a one-year deal with the Thunder (plus a player option), run it back with Westbrook and Melo (who has a player option this summer he’s likely to pick up), let the dust settle on LeBron’s future, see who clears cap space and get a little longer look at the development of Lonzo Ball and the Lakers.

Quarterbacks struggled with multiple batted balls in each game. Of the 11 quarterbacks who played in Saturday’s two games, the one who had perhaps the best day was Arkansas’ Austin Allen.

The 6-1, 209-pound Allen showed some elusiveness in the pocket during the NFLPA Bowl and was accurate while going 6 of 9 for 75 yards. He made good decisions and completed several NFL throws.

The Seahawks won their game against the Vikings on Friday but suffered a pretty big loss too, as left tackle George Fant was lost for the season with a knee injury. You can read about that plus Michael Bennett continuing his protest, Russell Wilson and Sam Bradford looking sharp, Dalvin Cook excelling and Blair Walsh’s revenge in Friday’s roundup.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III Jersey is not on an NFL roster these days.

Authentic Kids Korbinian Holzer Jersey
He appears to have far too much time on his hands, given that he was using some of it to conduct a very public feud with a former Washington Redskins teammate, wide receiver Santana Moss.
Premier Reebok Men's Jamie Langenbrunner White Away Jersey - NHL #15 New Jersey Devils
If NFL teams required another reason not to consider signing Griffin if a need at quarterback arises, they just got one. Griffin’s once so-glorious, as-promising-as-it-gets NFL career is in ruins. And he seems to be doing what he can to keep it that way.

Commentary this morning about the Commissioner’s position on the Anthem is not accurate. As we said yesterday, there will be a discussion of these issues at the owners meeting next week, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email to The Post. The NFL is doing the hard work of trying to move from protest to progress, working to bring people together. Commissioner Goodell spent yesterday with Miami Dolphins players, law enforcement and community leaders witnessing first-hand the outstanding work our players and clubs are doing to strengthen their communities. Players from around the league will be in New York next week to meet with owners to continue our work together.

Goodell, as The Post reported Tuesday, had stopped short of saying the NFL would require players to stand, but in a letter to teams he strongly suggested that owners at next week’s meeting find a way to marry activism on social issues with the show of patriotism.

Chicago still led by 17 when Bobby Portis hit a pair of free throws with 5:06 left in the fourth quarter, but New Orleans tied it at 110 on Jrue Holiday’s 3 with 46 seconds left. Davis gave New Womens Tristan Thompson Jersey Orleans its first lead of the fourth quarter with an alley-oop dunk of Jrue Holiday’s lob.
Authentic Kids Tom Compton Jersey
Markkanen tied it with a driving layup before Davis and Justin Holiday each hit two free throws in the final seconds.

New Orleans had a chance to win at the end of the first overtime, but Ian Clark’s 3-point attempt was short and Jrue Holiday’s rushed putback also rattled out.

The Chiefs got aggressive to get Mahomes because Andy Reid and his coaching staff loved the massive upside of the young QB’s skill set. The same thing happened with the Bears in jumping up to get Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2.
