Titans lock up Ryan Succop ahead of free agency

The Tennessee Titans and kicker Ryan Succop have agreed to a Ryan Succop Jersey multiyear extension, the team announced.

Limited Youth Brian Urlacher Jersey The extension is for five years and $20 million, a source told ESPN. The deal includes $7.25 million guaranteed and will pay Succop $8.25 million over the first two seasons. He also gets a $3.5 million signing bonus, according to a source.

Succop, 31, was set to become a free agent in March. He expressed gratitude and excitement over the deal in a post on his Instagram account.

Praising Him always! Feeling very blessed to sign back with the
Womens Abraham Almonte Jersey titans today! So thankful for such a great organization, awesome teammates, and the best fans in the league! Can’t wait for the 2018 season!

When healthy, he’s a dynamic slot presence who can stretch the field and develop a strong rapport with a talented quarterback. He can thrive in the right situation 鈥?especially if he cuts back on the drops that have haunted him throughout his four-year NFL career.

Jeremiah Attaochu, LB, Los Angeles Chargers
Attaochu was only 21 years old when the Chargers made him the 50th overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft. He was primed for a breakout after notching six sacks in 12 starts in 2015, but injuries have derailed his upward rise. Georgia Tech’s all-time sack leader has only played in 38 games in his four-year career 鈥?albeit with a handful of healthy scratches last fall 鈥?and will be a major question mark for whoever signs him as a free agent this offseason.

Despite McCourty’s contention, one Patriots defensive starter reiterated to ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Monday that he definitely didn’t know that Butler wasn’t going to play in the Super Bowl. The starter and one teammate previously told Anderson on Feb. 5 that they weren’t made aware of the Patriots’ plan for Butler.

There are not highlight videos of players missing a bunch of shots or dunks in practice for a reason 鈥?it’s not exciting, but it’s more representative of how training and the real game goes than the highlights of someone making 10 shots in a row or doing a reverse-under-the-leg dunk. What we see all too often in All-Star Weekend is the truth.

Maybe there is a magical way to fix the weekend 鈥?a format that will make things more competitive, make players more potent from the three and more successful in their ambitious dunks. But as long as there’s nothing to play for and shooting from the three and dunking the ball creatively are still hard, then this unimpressive outcome will be the standard.

Additionally, the NFL’s claim this week to be apolitical is preposterous.

McVay has injected a swagger into this team, quarterback Jared Goff is vastly improved from his rookie year (his passer rating of 112.2 is third-best in the NFL) and running back Todd Gurley is playing like one of the best at his position (he’s had 100-plus rushing yards in back-to-back games after going the previous 26 games with only one).

It’s not a lock that Jason Peters is the same player after suffering an ACL and MCL tear in 2017, which is a major injury for any player not to mention a guy who will be 36 when the 2018 season begins. Whether Peters returns or not, the Eagles should be thinking long-term about the tackle spot, and that means drafting a quality right-tackle prospect like Miller and shifting Lane Johnson to the left side.

Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma. Given that the Bills have back-to-back picks at 21 and 22, it’s entirely possible they shoot up in the draft to grab a Lamar Jackson or Josh Allen. But if they stand pat, Mayfield is likely the best they can hope for to address the position if they move on from Tyrod Taylor during the offseason. Mayfield has an excellent arm and should be a good fit in Rick Dennison’s offense in Buffalo, though he’s far from a finished product and will likely go through some growing pains in Year 1.

Gee, what if they played all the national anthems? Maryland’s state-funded men’s basketball team includes players from Bosnia, Slovakia, Angola, Canada, Nigeria, Spain and Mexico. Apparently, the university can’t find any student-athletes in Maryland who could use a basketball scholarship.

let’s dive deeper into the similarities and differences between Jared Goff and Josh Rosen.

On Saturday afternoon, UCLA will be on the national stage in one of the most-watched games of the season at No. 12 Washington (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC). While the Huskies are coming out of a bye week looking to bounce back from the Arizona State loss and keep its College Football Playoff hopes alive, the UCLA storyline that will dominate the conversation around the game is going to be Josh Rosen.

“He’s an elite thrower,” Washington coach Chris Petersen told reporters this week. “He is accurate, he throws with anticipation, he’s excellent in the pocket. He’s all the things. You guys always ask me what are the things — he’s got ’em. He’s accurate, he throws with anticipation, he’s great in the pocket.”

Given the Los Angeles connection, Pac-12 ties and similar NFL Draft hype, let’s dive deeper into the similarities and differences between Jared Goff Jersey and Josh Rosen.

Critics of the NFL protests have said they are disrespectful of the flag, and 49 percent of respondents agree with that argument. However, 46 percent said the protests illustrate the very freedoms the flag symbolizes.

That symbolic weight is at the heart of the protest debate. What exactly do the flag and the anthem symbolize? More than half of the poll respondents, 57 percent, said the anthem represents America’s rights and freedoms, while 34 percent said the anthem represents the sacrifices of the military.

The Lions are coming off a bye against a Steelers team that has turned things around the past two weeks. The Steelers defense has taken a big step forward the past two games, and I think that continues. The Steelers win a tough road game.

These two have each lost two consecutive games, which is concerning. The Chiefs have defensive issues, while the Broncos have offensive issues. Something has to give here. I think the Chiefs defense gets the best of it. Kansas City takes it.

Tom Brady in this early window is a real challenge

In three years as Cal’s starter, Goff went 0-13 against top-25 opponents and 0-9 against in-state rivals USC, UCLA and Stanford. Goff has the rest of his professional career to determine his legacy as a quarterback, but Rosen can separate himself in the comparison as the better college quarterback with wins in marquee games.

This is an early start for the Chargers on the east coast, which is tough. They are playing better, especially on defense. But facing Tom Brady Jersey in this early window is a real challenge. The Patriots are better now on defense, which will slow the Chargers. Pats take it.

SDSU uses Goedert in the slot, as a tradition in-line tight end, or in an off-set position. His blocking skills have improved a great deal — “I don’t mind getting my face dirty,” he says — but Schleusner finds him more valuable downfield. According to Eidsness, the coaching staff has somewhat tailored the offense around him.

“We do a lot of the RPOs (run-pass option plays) because if we send him downfield, that’s better than having him block,” Schleusner says. “Because if we send him vertical, two guys might go with him, whereas even if he blocks and dominates his man, that’s still only one man.”

Despite looming bad weather on game day, tailgating is still in full effect on Jackrabbit Avenue a couple of blocks from the on-campus, 17,000-capacity stadium. Storefront windows are painted in SDSU blue and yellow and the dismal conditions can’t dampen local excitement.

Rosen’s already earned a spot in college football lore with the hot tub in the dorm room, his honest and outspoken views on education and athletics and general comfort with himself in the spotlight. He’s even already got one top-25 win that Goff didn’t have, knocking off No. 17 Utah late in the 2015 season.

Bruce Arians reverses course, says he’s not to blame for loss

One day after Cardinals coach Bruce Arians shouldered the blame for a busted fourth-and-1 call that contributed to the Cardinals’ 31-21 loss to the Houston Texans, he reversed course.

That being said, baseball officials would prefer to successfully negotiate the terms of change with the players this winter. This way, both sides will be committed moving forward.

One way or another, sources expect the 20-second pitch clock to become part of a sport that has long been celebrated for its timelessness. But with the average time of game now lagging to over three hours, commissioner Rob Manfred has been devoted to the mission of speeding up the action as part of an effort to appeal to the newest generations of fans.

The Cowboys will be without running back Ezekiel Elliott after Elliott on Wednesday dropped his appeal of a six-game suspension. That will add intrigue to their Sunday prime-time NFC East matchup vs. the Eagles in Arlington.

In the other prime-time games this week, the Titans will take on the Steelers at Heinz Field on “Thursday Night Football,” and the Falcons will meet the Seahawks in Seattle on “Monday Night Football.”

Russell Wilson continues to thrive despite constant pressure — Wilson has been a lightning rod all season, escaping pressure to execute magical throws down field. He was up to his usual antics again this week, extending plays to help keep the Seahawks offense on the field. nike_patriots_562

It’s been a hard week for fans of the Arizona Cardinals Jersey

Before their 33-0 loss in London, fans were feeling hopeful after the team traded for Adrian Peterson Jersey and his strong performance led to a win over the Buccaneers in Week 6. For a moment, the Cardinals looked like they might return to form as legitimate Super Bowl contenders. That all seems like a distant memory now.

Not only was the team shutout at the hands of their division rivals, the Los Angeles Rams, but quarterback Carson Palmer suffered a broken arm during the loss, potentially ending his season. Adding insult to injury, reports surfaced yesterday that head coach Bruce Arians was planning to leave the team at the end of the year (Arians refuted the rumor on Twitter.)

“We look forward to him joining the conversation,” NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said Wednesday.

Coming off a season-low 6.5-point fantasy outing against the Carolina Panthers, Howard is a buy-low candidate for owners looking to upgrade at running back. Since Mitchell Trubisky took over under center in Chicago in Week 5, Howard’s workload has been massive. The second-year running back is averaging 25 carries and over 100 rush yards per game in that span. Howard’s 76 rush attempts over the last three weeks are second in the NFL only to Le’Veon Bell (82). The Bears are the most run-heavy team in the league with the rookie quarterback finding his way under John Fox, and Howard owns 78 percent of his team’s rush attempts and 63 percent of the Bears offensive touches with Trubisky as the starter.

You would think opposing defenses would have caught on by now, and just stack the box full of defenders to limit Howard’s production. In fact, that is the case, but it hasn’t seemed to matter. Per Next Gen Stats, Howard faced eight-plus defenders in the box on 38.1 percent of his carries with Mike Glennon as Chicago’s quarterback.

Josh Gordon says ‘real work begins now’ after returning to Browns

Josh Gordon reported to the Browns for the first time since his suspension started in September 2016 and now the wide receiver is optimistic about his return to Cleveland.

Earlier this week, in a Q&A interview with GQ, Gordon admitted to being under the influence prior to every game of his career, and on Wednesday one reporter asked the wide receiver what it would be like to play a game sober. Gordon quickly dismissed the question, shifting the focus to football and what hebring to the Browns this season.

“In reference to anything like I’ve stated previously in Q&A’s or publications that are already out there, those things have been asked and answered. For me being here right now, I’m trying to relate everything back to football and taking advantage of the platform being here and underneath this roof and sticking to the football facts and football-based questions and what Ido to help this team now,” Gordon said.

The bombshell report shows that what had been a simmering feud between Jones and Goodell may be heading to a rolling boil.

According to the Times, Jones told the six owners on the league’s compensation committee last week that he had hired high-profile attorney David Boies, according to the unidentified people, who declined to speak publicly about about internal league matters.

At the heart of Jones’ dissatisfaction with Goodell is his suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

The dispute between arguably the league’s most visible owner and its commissioner comes in the midst of a tumultuous season that has been marked by declining TV ratings, season-ending injuries to high-profile players such as Aaron Rodgers and Odell Beckham Jr., a dispute over protests during the national anthem fanned by President Donald Trump and a labor grievance filed by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, accusing NFL owners of colluding to blackball him.broncos_093-500x500

he grew into a cult figure for an elite team.

Let’s see where the Bulldogs stand in the stats I used for Alabama. Georgia’s margin of victory per game (26.3) ranks No. 6, it is No. 3 in yards allowed per play (4.1), and it is 16th in offensive points per game (37.3). So the Bulldogs stack up well on paper. And that win at Notre Dame early in the season might be the best win in all of college football so far. Georgia has a super-talented team, too

If Luck hadn’t been taken off the list before the beginning of the regular season, he would’ve been ineligible to play in the first six weeks of the season. With Luck already ruled out for Week 6, the transaction didn’t do much.

Ryan, who finished 18 of 29 for 254 yards, had lots of trouble with the weather, fumbling four snap exchanges from center Alex Mack and losing two of them. The Falcons ended up lining Ryan up in the shotgun down the stretch to prevent further problems.

The Jets (3-5) had their own issues while losing their third straight game in which they held a lead in the fourth quarter . Josh McCown had a bad snap exchange and fumbled on another play — but recovered — and Jeremy Kerley had a costly muffed punt.

The meeting had tentatively been scheduled to take place Monday in Washington, D.C. But Saturday, on the heels of Houston Texans owner Bob McNair’s controversial “inmates running the prison” comment, a coalition of NFL players invited McNair, commissioner Roger Goodell and quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a meeting Monday in Philadelphia. They said they hoped to address players’ “immediate concerns before additional progress can be made.”

In Seattle, however, he grew into a cult figure for an elite team. He helped the Seahawks win the 2010 NFC West title, capping it with the “Beast Quake” run in the wild-card playoff round.

Pierre Garcon on winless 49ers: ‘You learn a lot from losing’

“You learn a lot from losing,” Garcon said following Sunday’s 33-10 loss to the Eagles. “When you’re winning you think you’re on top of the world, but you learn a lot more from losing. We’ll go back and watch [the film], try to get better. Work on things. Keep learning. Keep taking things away. Just keep playing. You can’t give up.”

Houston had a 38-34 lead, but the Seahawks were driving. Seattle was on the Texans’ 20-yard line, and Russell Wilson threw an interception to Houston’s Marcus Williams. But the Texans couldn’t do anything with their next possession. Seattle got the ball back, and Wilson got the Seahawks in the end zone to take a 41-38 lead. The Texans had just 21 seconds to work with. Richard Sherman picked off Deshaun Watson to seal the win for Seattle.

Who stood out: Will Fuller. The Watson to Fuller connection has been exceptional this season, and Sunday was no different. Fuller had five catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns.

The Texans offense was a tough test for the Seahawks defense. Seattle hadn’t allowed a touchdown in the fourth quarter all season, but that changed on Sunday.

Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman baited Deshaun Watson into three picks, but Watson was otherwise phenomenal. He finished with 402 yards, four touchdowns, and the three picks. Watson has more than held his own against the likes of Tom Brady and Wilson, but the Texans have lost both of those games.

The Seahawks defense is a force to be reckoned with. Five sacks and three picks were key to Seattle’s win.

“You can’t get caught up in that record and all of those things,” Shanahan said. “It’s something that we are extremely disappointed in, but sitting here and talking about it and dwelling on it is not going to help us in the future. We have to come to work and look at this hard to find out where we can get better.
