Jayon Brown Men's Limited Olive/Camo Jersey: Nike NFL Tennessee Titans 2017 Salute to Service #55
The team announced on Tuesday that third-round pick Chukwuma Okorafor has agreed to a four-year deal. The offensive tackle was one of two third-round picks by the Steelers this year. Quarterback Mason Rudolph was also drafted in that round and joins first-round safety Terrell Edmunds as unsigned picks in Pittsburgh.

Wagner was asked why he felt a need to say that.

Just because he needs to know, Wagner said. He needs to know that we appreciate him over here because he’s a talent that you’re not going to ever see another person like him ever again play Authentic Matt Cullen Jersey the football field. There’s nobody that’s going to be able to start from one side of the hash and be able to get all the way to the other side of the field.

Although I am leaving my full-time role in football operations, I will always be a part of the Eagles family and the Philadelphia community. I look forward to continuing to work with the organization as a consultant while I also pursue other endeavors that are extremely important to me and my family’s purpose to inspire hope and increase the minds, bodies and souls of so many to come.

When the Eagles hired Dawkins, it appeared they were grooming him to one day become a General Manager. For whatever reason, it didn’t work out.

Brian Dawkins will always be a Philadelphia Eagle, the team said in its statement. We greatly appreciate all of Brian’s contributions to our football operations department over the last two seasons and we are excited that he will continue to help us going forward. As an NFL Hall of Famer and a Philadelphia Eagles legend, Brian is able to provide valuable perspective and draw on his extensive experience in the NFL while working in our front office. Our doors will always be open to him, and we will support him in anything he does 鈥?both professionally and personally 鈥?as he continues his post-playing career.

Cleveland Browns add fifth quarterback in last two months, signing Brogan Roback

The Cleveland Browns’ quarterback carousel continues to spin at a furious pace.
Men's Adidas Winnipeg Jets #3 Tucker Poolman Authentic Navy Blue USA Flag Fashion NHL Jersey
Monday, the team signed former Eastern Michigan passer Brogan Roback, at least the fifth new quarterback on the roster since the 2017 regular season ended.

Elite Kids Hisashi Iwakuma Jersey Roback (6-3, 215),聽a rookie, started 34 games in college and set school records for passing touchdowns (57) and yards of total offense (8,876).

Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) offered up the the Gaming Accountability and Modernization Enhancement (GAME) Act that hasn’t even been considered by a committee.聽There’s little chance it will get a floor vote as Congress is consumed by other issues ahead of the midterm elections.聽

After paying a second-round pick to dump Osweiler’s contract and a first-rounder to trade up for Watson, most of the Texans 2018 draft stock was used to reset the quarterback position. For O’Brien, that’s Mitchell Trubisky Jersey simply the price of correcting past mistakes.

Giorgio Tavecchio Limited Jersey It’s the hardest position in football to evaluate, he said. Very, very difficult to evaluate. When you look at them in college, you’re not sure exactly what maybe their coach is telling them in that system. When you interview them, you’re trying to teach them some things that maybe you’ll do with them, see how they pick that up. You just have to do the best job you can of spending time with the person, with making sure that you know everything you can know about that person. And when you feel it in your gut, and your organization feels it, then you go ahead and make that pick. But it’s a very, very important position on any team in the NFL.

After several swings and misses, the Texans found a multidimensional playmaker in Watson. So long as the ACL tear is a one-off fluke injury, Houston will have finally found their long-term answer at the most important position in sports.

Former NFL cheerleaders’ lawyer pushes for league-wide guidelines

The lawyer for two former NFL cheerleaders told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday that she’s optimistic and encouraged after discussions with the league’s legal representatives.

Sara Blackwell seeks better working conditions for members of teams’ cheerleading squads through the implementation of league-wide guidelines after some clubs have been accused of fostering an environment of harassment and intimidation. Blackwell, who threatened legal action against the league on behalf of her clients, also spoke with an outside lawyer representing the league Wednesday. 

I thought it went really well, Blackwell said in a phone interview. I am optimistic and encouraged by the conversation. Although I think their concern is genuine, we didn’t waive any rights (to file lawsuits) and we still have that right moving forward. I’m very, very optimistic they are coming to the table with the right intentions.

When the Jaguars players realized he wasn’t supposed to be there, they stopped him and held him until police arrived. The man was reportedly booked for burglary, grand theft, and trespassing.

A timely interception if there ever was one for Bortles.

The signees also include two receivers.

Iowa State receiver Allen Lazard is 6 foot 5, 227 pounds, giving Jacksonville size at the position. He caught 231 passes for 3,218 yards and 25 touchdowns in his college career. Carson-Newman receiver Dorren Miller was the other player at the position the Jaguars signed.

The Jaguars also reached agreement with North Carolina State guard Tony Adams, Miami cornerback Dee Delaney, UNLV defensive tackle Mike Hughes, Jacksonville State linebacker Darius Jackson, Marshall defensive back C.J. Reavis, Cincinnati defensive tackle Lyndon Johnson, Vanderbilt cornerback Tre’ Herndon, Miami (Fla.) offensive tackle KC McDermott, Virginia Tech linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka and North Carolina Central linebacker Reggie Hunter.

Not so much.

Patriots, Rams in good shape for 2019 compensatory picks

The deadline has passed for any free agent signings that will affect the awarding of compensatory picks in next year’s NFL draft, and the Patriots and Rams are the teams that look to be in the best shape for 2019 compensatory picks.

Both the Patriots and the Rams are likely to be awarded two third-round picks next year, according to That’s the best haul of any team.
Elite Kids Marko Dano Jersey
Keep an eye on the Rams’聽Lamarcus Joyner, who’s currently carrying the franchise tag, Houston’s聽Tyrann Mathieu, who’s on a prove-it deal this year, as well as Green Bay’s聽Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Chicago’s underrated Adrian Amos, both starting the final year Marcedes Lewis Womens Jersey of their rookie contracts.

Former Australian Rules player Joel Wilkinson is taking the body that runs the country’s professional game to court alleging that racist abuse and sexual harassment ruined his career.

That said, fans are going overboard and it’s time to ease up on the coach who is now entering his second year. There was a lot of issues with the 2017 Broncos and the head coach was a smaller problem than fans realize.

When the Broncos decided to keep Joseph, they also decided to give him a bit more power. He had more of a voice during the Draft process, and even the selections.
Elite Kids Jaelen Strong Jersey
This is something he didn’t have a year ago. In fact, in all things last year, Joseph was more of a figurehead than the actual head coach. His power was limited from the moment he was hired. He was just along for the ride.

Having a voice for this year’s Draft class, Denver had what many around the league are praising as the best class under John Elway. Joseph was able to go get a lot of players he liked and wanted in the Draft.

Steve Wilks: The kind of person Josh Rosen is allowed him to be QB he is

Josh Rosen entered the huddle Friday for the first time as a professional football player.
Men's Game Justin Vogel White Jersey: Road #8 NFL Green Bay Packers Nike
Pretty cool, isn’t it? Rosen told his teammates, via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.

It wasn’t exactly Joe Montana’s John Candy moment. In fact, the Cardinals’ new quarterback was a little jittery as he started his first practice, according to coach Steve Wilks. But Rosen settled in and completed a 65-yarder to Christian Kirk later in practice.

The relationship was never repaired. Benson didn’t play well for three years in Chicago (never rushed for more than 700 yards in a season), but he enjoyed three 1,000-yard seasons in Cincinnati.

The Buccaneers selected Auburn running back Bo Jackson with the first overall pick in 1986 and offered him a five-year, $7.6 million contract … which he declined, just as he told Tampa he would do. Jackson instead accepted a three-year, $1.067 million deal with MLB’s Kansas City Royals.

Jackson had grown upset with Bucs owner Hugh Culverhouse, who invited the running back to take a trip to Tampa on the owner’s plane. Stefon Diggs Jersey When Jackson returned to Auburn, he found out the visit cost him NCAA eligibility for baseball season.
Authentic Youth Mason Crosby Jersey
That points to what a disappointment Gillislee was last year: Although he was New England’s primary ball carrier for the first half of the season, he was benched for the second half of the season and only played in one game after Week Eight. He was a healthy scratch for all three postseason games.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick will need to see more out of Gillislee in training camp and the preseason, or else Gillislee will be an unrestricted free agent a year after the Patriots signed him to a two-year deal as a restricted free agent.

But the Masters and Augusta National Golf Club steadfastly protect their product and do not allow it to become commercialized beyond its stated values and mission. The NCAA, which includes the conferences and member schools, on the other hand, commercializes every aspect of its properties, selling them to the highest bidder and maximizing revenues, and it does so in contradiction to its stated values and mission.

The Masters, the most valuable professional golf tournament on the planet, is more amateur in nature, action and restraint than the NCAA tournament or any regular-season college basketball game.

Jets sign two, cut two after rookie minicamp

The Jets wrapped up their weekend by signing two draft picks and two undrafted players, including one who tried out for the team over the weekend.
Women's Nike Washington Wizards #23 Michael Jordan Swingman Navy Blue NBA Jersey Statement Edition
They announced that linebackers Frankie Luvu and Anthony Wint have both been added to the 90-man roster. The Jets waived cornerback Reggie Hall and defensive tackle Lord Hyeamang, both of whom were signed as undrafted free agents last week.

Brent Qvale Authentic Jersey Luvu had 110 tackles, 19 for loss, eight sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles over four seasons at Washington State. He had 6.5 of those sacks during his final season.

A year later, Acuna was still roughing up the rawhide routinely. He’d gone deep in each of the first two games in Scranton and was slated to lead off against the RailRiders in the series finale. Before heading out to the batter’s box, he was approached by Gwinnett cleanup hitter Rio Ruiz. In an effort to keep things interesting, to keep Authentic Steven Matz Jersey Acuna challenged and engaged, Ruiz made an offer to the precocious prospect: If you hit a bomb in your first AB, I’ll buy you a pair of Air Jordans.

Ellis, 25, played six games with Jacksonville in 2016, making three catches for 11 yards.

Charles, 29, has played 49 career games with Buffalo and Detroit, though he sat out the 2017 season after Jacksonville cut him. He signed a contract with the Chiefs this offseason.

They were so similar, it was irresistible — two plays that encapsulated so much about two series that might end tonight, and about the swing Game 4s that got us here:

Two pick-and-rolls in the middle of the floor, two switches, two very different results. In Utah, Ricky Rubio lofted an entry pass to Derrick Favors, who trucked a foul-plagued Russell Westbrook.

Tommy Hunter Authentic Jersey Favors has outplayed Carmelo Anthony in a bellwether matchup. His offensive rebounding kept Utah in touch during Game 2. He has chased Anthony around the perimeter, patrolled the paint when taking over at center, and produced just enough offense. His return to health has been an underrated part of Utah’s second-half surge — and piqued interest among free agency suitors.

Packers lose another scout, this time to the Jets

The Packers have had a deep bench in the personnel department in the past, but some of that is scattering now.

According to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Packers scout Alonzo Dotson is taking a job in the Jets scouting department.

It has been an offseason of change for the Packers front office, beginning with new General Manager Brian Gutekunst taking over for longtime G.M. Ted Thompson.

Then former Packers employee John Dorsey took Alonzo Highsmith and Eliot Wolf with him to Cleveland.

As it relates to Coleman, the change of scenery that would come from a trade could be a welcome development. And so we’ll see whether the Browns get a “decent offer” for his services at some point before training camps open.

Based on Coleman’s first two years, a “decent offer” could be the Browns giving another team a draft pick to take his remaining guaranteed money off the books.

Both the Patriots and the Rams are likely to be awarded two third-round picks next year, according to That’s the best haul of any team.

The Patriots are always smart about getting compensatory picks, which are awarded to teams that lose more free agents, and especially more expensive free agents, than they sign. It’s no surprise to see the atop the list of compensatory picks.

But the Rams’ presence at the top may surprise a lot of people, because the Rams made offseason headlines by attracting a lot of players. How can the Rams get so many compensatory picks after an offseason dominated by headlines about the Rams bringing in big-name players?

The Class of 2011 was incredible: 15 Pro Bowlers selected in the first round, including eight of the top nine picks. Cam Newton, Von Miller, Marcell Dareus, A.J. Green, Patrick Peterson, Julio Jones and Tyron Smith went ahead of Watt.

NFL draft Mr. Irrelevant Trey Quinn threw a no-hitter in the Little League World Series

This year’s Mr. Irrelevant has a surprisingly impressive r茅sum茅.
Men's Joe Panik Replica Green Jersey: Majestic MLB #12 San Francisco Giants Salute to Service
Former SMU wide receiver Trey Quinn, who the Washington Redskins selected with the last pick (No. 256 overall) in the NFL draft on Saturday, just so happens to be a little league baseball legend.聽

Five quarterbacks were taken in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft鈥攖he first time that has happened since 1999. The last pick of those five may be the most interesting and, over time, could provide the greatest return.

Limited Mens Earl Thomas III Jersey The Baltimore Ravens had already traded their original first pick (No. 16 overall), dealing with the Bills to get the 22nd聽pick, and then they traded again with the Tennessee Titans to move down again to the 25th聽pick. There, they selected South Carolina tight end Hayden Hurst, filling an obvious need for an offense that underperformed in 2017.

Daniel Kilgore Limited Jersey Then, Authentic Paul Molitor Jersey in a surprising move, Baltimore traded up from its 52nd聽pick in the second round to the 32nd聽pick owned by the Philadelphia Eagles. And with that pick, general manager Ozzie Newsome鈥攊n his final year with the team鈥攕elected Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Cops were told Penn was at the house earlier and got handsy with his wife, at one point slapping her butt. Donald’s wife took exception to the slap and a vocal argument ensued.

It’s hard to imagine a rougher landing spot for a rookie passer than Buffalo right now.

The offensive line is going through drastic changes after the Bills traded offensive tackle Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals. Eric Wood won’t play again after suffering a career-ending neck injury, while guard聽Richie Incognito retired on Twitter, unretired on Twitter and is currently in some sort of gray area.

At receiver, Buffalo’s top wideout last season was Deonte Thompson, who is now a Dallas Cowboy. Second was Zay Jones, who was arrested for felony vandalism this offseason. Third was Jordan Matthews, who is now a New England Patriot. The Bills do have Kelvin Benjamin who can help, but his inconsistency will make him tough to rely on.聽

The NFL can try as hard as it wants. It just can’t keep Roger Goodell from getting booed.

He was booed throughout the night during Day 1 of the 2018 NFL Draft. Day 2 Shaquille O’Neal Youth jersey brought more of the same. Much like he did on the first day, Goodell opened Day 2 being flanked by a number of NFL legends. And like the first day, it didn’t matter. While the crowd stopped its booing to cheer the Hall of Famers, the commissioner was soundly booed by those at AT&T Stadium.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected running back Ronald Jones II out of USC in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 38th overall. Jones rushed for 1,550 yards and 19 touchdowns during his final season at USC and can become the workhorse back for the Buccaneers immediately.

Still, some thought it may be bad enough to keep him sidelined for training camp, the preseason and the beginning of his first regular season.
Elite Womens Borje Salming Jersey
Buffalo (from Indianapolis)鈥擩osh Allen, QB, Wyoming While we’re hung up on finding a landing spot for all the quarterbacks, I’d remind you of four things at this pick: A) I don’t know if Buffalo loves Allen; B) but I hear they love his ability to throw it through the lake effect winds and snow; C) Allen is a garrulous, genial version of Jim Kelly, a rifle-armed work in progress the fans in western New York will love; and D) I think this trade fits both teams because I’m not sure the Colts would demand both Bills’ first-round picks in return.

Authentic Womens Andrew Shaw Jersey In fact, because of the strength of the second round, I could see Colts GM Chris Ballard valuing the 53rd and 56th picks collectively higher than the 22nd pick in this draft. So, 12, 53, 56 and, say, 96 for six? Could be equitable. It would leave the Bills with their second of two first-rounders. 7. Tampa Bay鈥擬inkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama No end to the love for the versatile Fitzpatrick, who can play either safety, either corner, the slot, or, in a pinch, as an in-the-box linebacker. And he’s done it for three full seasons at the highest level of college football, which NFL people love. Denzel Ward could go here too, but my bet’s on the valued Fitzpatrick.

The Hall of Fame goalie signed a two-year contract Thursday with the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team. Roy, 52, previously acted as part owner, coach and GM of the Remparts from 2005 to 2013, winning a Memorial Cup in 2006.

Coming back to run the Remparts is like a gift to myself, Roy said. I lived through some very good years behind the bench. I consider it a privilege to come back to my city to coach this team.

He’s had two surgeries, so we want to make sure we don’t do any more damage and just give him a little breather, Martinez said.

The Nationals also optioned infielder/outfielder Matt Reynolds to Triple-A Syracuse and called up outfielder Rafael Bautista and infielder Adrian Sanchez.

If this young man apologized and he is sincere and there has been no evidence of this behavior moving forward, than this man deserves to have a second chance, Smith told USA TODAY Sports during a phone interview. He needs to be mindful of that in making sure that he treats everyone with respect, and he has to understand that you’re in this game and everyone is treated equally, no matter race, religion or whatever kind of background you have. …

On Wednesday, tweets containing racial slurs posted on Allen’s Twitter account when he was in high school were flagged by Yahoo! Sports. Allen apologized in an interview with ESPN on Thursday before the Bills traded up from the 12th pick in a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Antti Raanta Game Jersey I think it has the potential to be an outstanding pick, said Smith, a star on the Bills’ teams that reached the Super Bowl four consecutive times from 1991 to 1994 and lost each game. Hopefully all will go well and this young man will have this maturation process start to unfold.

For a team that drafts well, the future doesn’t have to be five years away. It could practically be the day after tomorrow.

Two years ago, the Rams and Eagles used the first two picks in the NFL draft on Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, a pair of talented-but-flawed quarterbacks not too different from Josh Allen, Sam Darnold and the others at the top Ubaldo Jimenez Youth jersey of this year’s class. Now the Rams have erased years of 7-9 punchlines to become one of the most dynamic, dangerous teams in the NFL. The Eagles? Well, they’re just the reigning world champions.
