Oklahoma bolstered its defensive line Sunday by picking up a commitment from Notre Dame graduate transfer Jay Hayes.
Hayes started all 13 games for the Irish last season. He finished with 27 tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack and one fumble recovery.
“That’s big,” Snyder adds. “That’s a huge point, being square, because that’s why that’s a threat.”
THE NEXT CLIP features another instance of Mitchell coming off a great screen by Gobert and getting in the lane, this time blowing by Guerschon Yabusele for an easy layup.
“This is really good by Rudy,” Snyder says. “Especially when they’re up on you like that, Jaylen Brown’s got no chance. Right? And Yabusele has no chance.”
Snyder rewinds to show Yabusele jab his right foot toward Mitchell as the rookie hesitates.
“And all you’ve got to do is get him f—ing leaning a little bit, especially because all these guys now are trained to jab, to fake at you. Look at that.
“Look where Jaylen Brown’s at once you get the ball back from Joe,” Bryant says. “He’s loading up ready to help on the drive. You’re the threat.
“This is what James Harden’s really good at. He’ll see the shift, and before he even comes off the pick-and-roll, it’s a quick swing. So as you’re playing, Rudy may come up and set a pick-and-roll, but it may be a situation where we swing it real quick, and then we have an advantage.”
AFTER GOBERT ENGULFS Brown with a screen at the top of the arc, Mitchell gets Boston big man Aron Baynes to bite on the possibility that he’ll pull the trigger on a 3, setting up an easy blow-by into the teeth of the Celtics’ defense. Jayson Tatum grabs Mitchell instead of giving up the easy dunk or layup.
“So why was this open?” Bryant asks. “Why did he foul you right here?”
Mitchell: “Because I hesitated and got back into it.”
Bryant’s eyes light up as he nods his head, proud that his prize pupil has gotten the message. Mitchell has the gift of rare explosiveness, but he can’t make the most of it if he drives only 100 mph and misses some billboards, as Bryant puts it.
“Exactly. You changed speeds, right? So the threat of you being able to shoot that shot brings him up,” Bryant says, clapping his hands.
“Now he comes up toward you. It’s the same clips we watched yesterday morning [on Damian Lillard]. Now he comes up. Now you attack.”
Snyder adds his two cents in support of Bryant’s point of emphasis.

Elite Kids Joel Ward Jersey Cordy Glenn and Clint Boling form a solid left side, but聽everything else remains a concern.聽
Center, in particular, is a position without a starting-caliber option. T.J. Johnson and guard convert Trey Hopkins are the only two on the roster with snapping experience.聽
Ohtani, who had surrendered only three runs in the first 13 innings of his major league career, began the game by giving up a Corey Linsley Authentic Jersey leadoff homer to Mookie Betts. He ended up allowing four hits and two walks, throwing only 52 percent of his pitches for strikes and generating just three swings and misses.
The blister actually developed in my last start, Ohtani said through an interpreter after the game. The medical people took a look at it, and they felt like it would be fine for today. I also felt the same way. I tried to pitch today, and the high intensity of the game, it didn’t hold up too well. The medical staff was looking at it. They just wanted to play it safe. I wanted to go back out, but they told me you should take it safe.
Ohtani took the mound on eight days’ rest because his Sunday start against the Kansas City Royals was postponed due to frigid weather.
He didn’t say anything in warm-ups about it, and it seemed like it had an effect on some of his command. He got through two innings, but we don’t want it to get any worse. Just make sure you bounce back for his next start, which we anticipate right now, Scioscia said.
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested and booked into the County of Santa Clara jail in February. On Thursday, Foster was charged with felony domestic violence.
The 49ers organization is aware of today’s disturbing charges regarding Reuben Foster. We will continue to follow this serious matter. Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process.
At the NFL Combine, general manager John Lynch said that the 49ers are actively following protocols with both law enforcement and the NFL.
With this, we’ve been a little quiet. And that’s for a reason. There’s places I can’t and won’t go, Lynch said, via Cam Inman and Matt Schneidman of Mercury News.
That was Foster’s second arrest in as many months. The Alabama product was arrested in Tuscaloosa in January for possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. His bond in that incident was set at $2,500.
The team provided a statement to Jennifer Lee Chan of Niners Nation.
Limited Womens Zach Ertz Jersey Adding a player like Bryant would further the Seahawks’ attempt to remake their roster in Russell Wilson’s image. Dez could fit alongside slot receiver Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett as Wilson’s primary targets. Bryant’s red-zone acumen would also make up for the loss of tight end Jimmy Graham. We know coach Pete Carroll doesn’t shy away from adding big personalities to his locker room.
Limited Youth Tim Hardaway Jersey The Cardinals might not be an obvious landing spot, but Arizona still has a need at receiver. The main reason I want the Cards on this list is for the possibility of Bryant working with Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzy has magnificently stiff-armed father time, morphing his game as he aged. It’s something many analysts have said Dez needs to do as he reaches 30. Fitzgerald has even been mentioned Dave Keon Authentic Jersey as an example Bryant needs to follow. What if he could work every day with the master himself?
The Jags let Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns walk in free agency, deciding to ride younger players Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole and give Donte Moncrief a surprising contract. On paper, adding Bryant would boost the underneath game for Blake Bortles and provide a red-zone target for a team that relies heavily on Leonard Fournette near the goal line.
Paul Goldschmidt will attempt to build upon a lifetime of success at AT&T Park when he leads the Arizona Diamondbacks against the San Francisco Giants in the middle contest of their three-game series Tuesday night.
Goldschmidt tripled in a run and scored moments later on A.J. Pollock’s sacrifice fly in the first inning of Monday’s series opener, providing all the Diamondbacks’ offense in a 2-1 win.
Jonathan Ericsson Elite Jersey Portis reportedly borrowed $200,000 for gambling in 2011, when he expected to make roughly $8 million in the coming football season. Washington cut him a month later.
Jon Bostic Elite Jersey
Washington dumped Portis and his $8.3 million salary on February 28 of that Womens Tony Romo Jersey same year. This means that Portis decided to roll the dice (literally) with $200,000 as the NFL and the NFL Players Association was careening toward a lockout, which began on March 11 of that year. Portis also was assuming (incorrectly) that Washington would be keeping an aging running back with a significant cash and cap obligation even though he had rushed for only 227 yards during the 2010 campaign.
Morris said he has told his brother to make sure the Wizards don’t land at the No. 7 seed.
I’m like, ‘Kieff, c’mon, man. Like s—. Get to the six or the eight [seed]. I ain’t trying to play y’all in the first round,’ said Morris. He’s like, ‘I know. I know.’ … Because it said they was like 40 percent to play in the seventh [seed], but then they lost, so I was like, should I be happy that they lost?
Utah is the fourth team in the crowded Western Conference to lock up a postseason spot, with five teams still in the running for the other four positions before the regular season ends Wednesday. It’s Utah’s second straight playoff appearance, even after star small forward Gordon Hayward left last offseason for a free agent deal with Boston.
It’s a great feeling to have that, Mitchell said. But at the same time, we got two more games left and want to stay where we’re at.
Free agent defensive end Kony Ealy left Dallas without a deal, Todd Archer of ESPN reports. The Cowboys do not appear in a rush to get something done, and with the Jets still interested in an Ealy return, he could end up back in New York.
The Panthers made Ealy a second-round pick in 2014. He spent three seasons there before Carolina traded him to New England for a second-round pick last offseason.
Thanks to their two-game interleague series in Los Angeles on Tuesday-Wednesday, the Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Dodgers suffer the misfortune of the league’s only five-game weeks, in a week in which 12 other teams are scheduled to play seven times. It’s especially bad news for the Athletics, who lose their designated hitter for those two games in the National League park and are a matchups-oriented team, and it’s quite a contrast to the team’s 11-day Week 1 schedule, which was loaded with volume opportunity.
With the Dodgers starting both Alex Wood and Hyun-Jin Ryu in the team’s week-opening series, Athletics hitters will face three left-handed starters, which is awful news for Matt Olson, Matt Joyce and Boog Powell. Khris Davis and Matt Chapman are the team’s only two “automatics” on the hitting side, though Marcus Semien and perhaps Olson are worth a look.
Kaplan: I’m iffy on Keith Kinkaid of the New Jersey Devils — or, even worse, a platoon situation between Kinkaid and Cory Schneider. Typically, teams are buoyed in the playoffs by their goaltender getting hot. I’ll leave that option open for Kinkaid — who helped will the Devils into the playoffs by allowing two goals or fewer in 13 of his past 20 starts, recording a .932 save percentage in that stretch.
Kinkaid’s larger body of work (.913 save percentage for the season), however, is less impressive. He’s a solid backup who might find himself in over his head come playoff time. If the job ends up going to Schneider at any point? Well, we’d be asking him to play a lot better than he has since his return from a groin injury.
Arledge: I’m not so positive about Martin Jones or the Devils’ duo of Kinkaid and Schneider. Jones is perhaps a surprise here because he brought the San Jose Sharks to the Final a couple of seasons ago, but I’m not too bullish on the 28-year-old. Aaron Dell almost stole the starting gig from Jones at the end of January, but Jones responded with a stout February.
Game Womens Eric Weems Jersey Zack Godley is off to a great start, and so are the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Godley pitched seven scoreless innings, Paul Goldschmidt had an RBI triple and the Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1 on Monday night.
The Diamondbacks won for the sixth time in seven games and matched the best start in franchise history through 10 games. They’re 8-2 for the first time since 2008.
He did everything we needed him to do on a night when we might’ve been a little short in the bullpen, Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said.
The big double plays, making pitches when his back was against the wall and not giving in and making quality pitches all night long, that was what he did.
Arrieta, the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner with the Cubs, joined the Phillies a month into spring training, signing a $75 million, three-year deal that could be worth up to $135 million over five seasons.
Wearing short sleeves Obi Melifonwu Jersey on a cold day — 44 degrees at first pitch — Arrieta retired 10 of his last 11 hitters after a rough first inning. He left after throwing 74 pitches but expects to throw about 85 to 90 in his next outing.
We want to make sure he’s healthy and strong, manager Gabe Kapler said. We’re all on the same page. It was a great performance.
The Marlins scored three runs off Luis Garcia (0-1) and Adam Morgan in the eighth to take a 6-3 lead. Odrisamer Despaigne (2-0) tossed two hitless innings to earn the win. Brad Ziegler finished for his first save.
Garcia hit Rojas with a fastball in the back to start the eighth. Starlin Castro walked and Morgan entered to strike out Justin Bour. After the runners advanced on Andrew Knapp’s passed ball, Anderson lined a double to right-center to give Miami a 5-3 lead.
He’s showing us he’s making adjustments, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said of Anderson. They stayed away from him and it was a nice job of hitting.
Bryan Holaday, the catcher who tossed a perfect inning in Miami’s 20-1 loss Saturday night, added an RBI single.
The Marlins (3-6) snapped a four-game losing streak and avoided a three-game sweep in Philadelphia (3-5).

Devin Booker Kids Jersey First, the former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator performed well when he took over play-calling duties from Andy Reid. The Chiefs averaged 397.8 yards per contest in Nagy’s six games orchestrating the offense.
Boone’s take on Friday night: Gary was thinking maybe he wasn’t throwing as hard or wasn’t warmed up properly, but we think he’s OK. The doctor checked him. (Chapman) convinced me enough to leave him in the game and finish the inning with his electric stuff.
Chapman’s take on Friday night: They asked me if there was anything was wrong. I said, ‘No, Eric Lindros Jersey I’m completely fine.’ Not the best moment for me right there, but I felt fine. I felt great. I noticed that the speed wasn’t where I wanted. I wanted to make some adjustments there. I was a cold night out there, too. Maybe the next time I’ll make sure I warm up better.
Boone’s Saturday morning take: Chapman checked out fine and he should be available for today.
The Mets earned a 2-0 win Tuesday, when five pitchers combined to three-hit the Phillies in a game in which the first pitch temperature was 40 degrees. The weather is likely to be a factor for the third time in as many days Wednesday, when rain is expected to lash the metropolitan area throughout the day.
Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard (1-0, 6.00 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola (0-0, 1.69 ERA) in a battle of Opening Day starters.
The scheduled series opener Monday was snowed out after several inches fell on Citi Field in the morning. The postponement gave each team its second off-day in the first week of the season — a week that in which it’s difficult for players and teams to get into the flow of the season even in the best of weather.
Henry Anderson Limited Jersey That’s always a concern, Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Tuesday afternoon. I think that to be a Major League Baseball player, throughout 162 games you have to have a really good routine.
As the NFL considered changing the catch rule, NFL Senior Vice President of Officiating Al Riveron said the Competition Committee reverse-engineered the process to ensure language would turn catches like Jesse James ‘ overturned TD versus the Patriots into receptions.
After the league officially announced the new rule, the change didn’t make the Pittsburgh Steelers tight end feel any better about his reversed potential game-winning score.

Womens Brandon Belt Jersey Here is Kiper’s rationale:
The Jets traded up with the Colts to get a quarterback. Now the question is: Which ones will be available There’s a legitimate chance the Jets have to settle for their third option, but it’s possible they like three quarterbacks in this class. Rosen has rare arm talent and is the most NFL-ready of this group, but his injury history (shoulder in 2016, concussions in 2017) has been a point of discussion among teams.
Kiper sends Mayfield to the Broncos at No. 5.
Of course, the Giants could always trade the second pick to a quarterback-needy team, like the Broncos, that is looking to leap-frog the Jets.
The only other quarterback Kiper has going in Round 1, outside of the main four, is Louisville’s Lamar Jackson, to the Cardinals at No. 15.
Do you like Kiper’s projection of Rosen Sam Mills Jersey to the Jets Or would you rather see them pass on Rosen and take Mayfield Sound off in the comments.
Tommy Kahnle (1-0) won despite allowing a tying, two-run double to pinch-hitter Denard Span on an 0-2 pitch with two outs in a three-run sixth. The Yankees regained the lead just before Gregorius’ homer when Tyler Austin scored from second as Brett Gardner sacrificed and third baseman Matt Duffy threw wildly past first , where second baseman Brad Miller tried to make a backhand pickup.
Taking a talented quarterback, depriving him of offensive help and putting his health in danger. 鈥?Dropping a player over domestic-violence accusations, but only after public pressure forces their hand. 鈥?Passing on Colin Kaepernick in favor of 鈥?pretty much anybody, while cryptically wishing for a quieter locker room.
The 49ers picked up a franchise quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo, and the Rams have essentially transformed their defense.
These two teams are shaping up to be one of the NFL’s great rivalries in 2018. The NFC West has turned into a good old-fashioned arms race.
We haven’t seen anything like this in a long time. If you want to understand why the NFL remains so popular despite some of the dunderheaded things its leadership has done, this is why.
Hooper might like him as a hitter, but if Babe were really that good, you’d think his managers would have noticed it, too. Babe’s previous managers have batted him ninth, and he pinch hit only 11 times last year. That’s a lot — for a pitcher! But if this guy were really the world’s greatest hitter, a smart manager would find a place for him to pinch hit almost every day. We’re big believers not just in stats but also in trusting the judgment of experts such as Jack Barry and Bill Carrigan, Ruth’s previous managers.
Babe is agile for a big man. But Babe is a big, big man, and he’s getting bigger — he’s known to order 10 hot dogs and eight sodas at a time, and word around the club is he recently acquired a taste for beer. That’s not too damaging at his age, but (a) his weight will be a bigger concern as he gets older, dramatically reducing his long-term potential as a defender and (b) it might already be catching up to him. We saw this yesterday, when Babe pitched: The Yankees bunted repeatedly at him, forcing him to take 13 chances (and commit two errors). They see Babe as a poor defender. That’s valuable data.
The 2017 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year was a godsend for the Saints. Players at Lattimore’s position rarely step on the field and play like an elite option from Day 1 against star wideouts such as Julio Jones.
In 2016, the Saints ranked dead last in the NFL in pass defense and won all of seven games. After New Orleans drafted Lattimore 11th overall last April, it jumped to 15th in the NFL in pass defense and won the NFC South.
While Lattimore doesn’t deserve sole credit for that jump, the idea of losing him for any length of time should be abjectly terrifying to Saints fans.
In early November, an estimated crowd of 750,000 to 1 million people paid tribute to the Astros at the team’s championship parade. Fans throughout the region had found comfort and solace in the Astros’ inspirational run after the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Harvey in August.
Cornerback Jason McCourty heard from the Browns that they were planning to release him last week, but the news that those plans changed came from a different source.
When McCourty’s twin brother Devin learned of Cleveland’s plan, he texted Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores to ask about bringing Jason to New England and Flores said he’d talk to head coach Bill Belichick. A short time later, Devin called Jason to tell him that a deal was done.

Zach Mettenberger joins Spring League More When it comes to quarterbacks with NFL experience, Johnny Manziel won’t be alone in the four-team Spring League. Former NFL quarterback Zach Mettenberger has joined the Spring League, too. A sixth-round pick of the Titans in 2014, Mettenberger has 14 regular-season appearances and 10 regular-season starts. He threw for more than 2,300 yards in two years with the Titans. Cut after 2015, Mettenberger spent time in 2016 with the Chargers and Steelers. He was out of the NFL for all of 2017.
