Dolphins in the market to draft a kicker

Elite Mens Russell Wilson Jersey
The Dolphins don’t have a kicker at the moment, so they’re, well, kicking the tires on some of the top college prospects.
Elite Men's Devin Hester Navy Blue Alternate Jersey: NFL Nike Chicago Bears #23 Vapor Untouchable
According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, Dolphins special teams coach Darren Rizzi had dinner last night with Florida’s Eddy Pineiro, who some consider to be the top kicker available in the draft.

Pineiro, who grew up in Miami, hit 88.4 percent of his field goals in college and 96.6 percent of his extra points. There’s video evidence of him hitting an 81-yarder in practice, so he seems to have enough leg to be good on kickoffs as well.

The unfortunate thing for me is there’s just not a lot of him playing football in a Giants helmet, which would have been a good thing for me to see moving forward, Shurmur said. That is what it is, but I’m looking forward to working with him, for sure. I’ve got high hopes for him, being a productive player in this league.The long-term effects of concussions and other brain trauma has been a big focus in recent years thanks in large part to the NFL and many of its former players. The league has been forced to address concerns that it doesn’t do enough to prevent concussions and sideline players who are suspected of sustaining them, but there’s still a long way to go. Now, new research suggests that just one concussion can be enough to increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease later in life.

Barkley rushed for 3,843 yards in three seasons in college, averaging 5.7 yards per carry, giving them another home run threat.

Gettleman had plenty of chances to trade, but stood firm on the opportunity to add a player considered by many to be the best overall prospect in the draft. He cautioned before the draft that missing on a quarterback could set a franchise back five years, so he decided to stick with the old one he already had.

Authentic Womens Travis Swanson Jersey Shurmur saw prospects Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield in person at the scouting combine and also attended their Pro Days. Next up, he gets to take a long look at Webb, as the Giants on Tuesday open up a three-day minicamp, a bonus for any NFL team with a first-year head coach. The offseason workout program is only in its third week and the offensive and defensive systems are not yet installed, so this early spring work on the field will only slightly resemble the product the Giants hope to display this season.

Eli Manning and Webb are, at present, the only two quarterbacks on the roster and you can be sure Shurmur is not going Authentic Lac Edwards Jersey to wear out Manning’s 37-year-old arm in a late April camp. So, Webb should expect a heavy workload as he gets his first real opportunity to show Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman what he’s got.

Brad Childress will coach Atlanta AAF team with Michael Vick as OC

Michael Vick will announce the Falcons’ second-round pick in the NFL Draft on Friday night, but that won’t be his only connection to pro football in Atlanta in the near future.
Adidas Brett Hull Premier Youth Jersey - NHL St. Louis Blues #16 Green Salute to Service
The Alliance of American Football announced that it will have a team in Atlanta on Wednesday and that Vick will serve as its offensive coordinator. Vick won’t be the only familiar name on the coaching staff for the new entry when the upstart league gets started in February 2019.

Limited Mens Miikka Kiprusoff Jersey Former Vikings head coach Brad Childress will be the head coach. He joins Steve Spurrier as announced head coaches for the new league with former UCLA, Colorado and Washington head coach Rick Neuheisel also expected to be on the sideline for a Southern California entry.

For example, Nielsen’s Out-of-Home ratings service, which many consider crucial for live sporting events since it tracks those watching games in public forums like bars and dorm rooms, only recently was able to turn the number around within a week. After the Super Bowl aired the night of Sunday, Feb. 4, Nielsen delivered the Out-of-Home rating that Thursday, indicating it had increased NBC’s broadcast by more than 12 million viewers.

Many networks that cover sports had been waiting for the Out-of-Home metric for years, knowing that factoring in those viewing groups would boost their tallies and their product in the eyes of advertisers. But the service wasn’t made available until April 2017, and the sped-up version just under a year later.

Plus, who’s to say it’s fast enough? The numbers lose value when Womens Carlos Martinez Jersey released four days after the event instead of the next day, as the world’s attention has turned elsewhere.

Ballard already moved down from No. 3, trading that pick to the Jets and gaining three second-rounders in the process.

The Jets did that to guarantee themselves a quarterback, and if one of top group falls past the Broncos at No. 5, Ballard could be in business again.

A.J. Derby Youth Jersey But Ballard said at the time he made the first deal the goal was to stay in range of a premium player, since he (ostensibly) doesn’t need a quarterback. That brings up the question of whether 11 or 12 is too far to fall, since the Dolphins and Bills seem eager to draft a franchise-changing quarterback. The Bills have also moved up once to get closer to that goal.

UF record-setters Johnny Townsend, Eddy Piñeiro poised to make NFL draft history

UF record-setters Johnny Townsend, Eddy Piñeiro poised to make NFL draft history More Punter Johnny Townsend and placekicker Eddy Piñeiro spent the past two seasons setting records at UF. The dynamic duo now looks to make history for the Gators this coming weekend. Never has a punter and kicker from the same school been selected during the same NFL draft since the league reduced the number of rounds to seven in 1994. The odds are against the two specialists, since NFL teams often use draft picks on position players.

Seems CBS’ Spero Dedes received a copy of the plan: How to succeed as a modern TV play-by-play man. He hollered at anything and everything throughout Michigan-Houston.

Wonder how many “senior graduate transfers,” as identified during NCAA Tournament telecasts, return to their latest colleges to continue their pursuit of their master’s degree? Or are they just one-season rentals?

Ready to wince? Reader Alan Streisfeld: “When Aaron Boone emailed his pitchers, did he remember to cc Sabathia?” Warned ya.

No college has produced more than five first overall picks in the NFL draft. But if the Browns take Sam Darnold first overall on Thursday night, he’ll be the sixth No. 1 pick from USC.

Southern Cal is one of three schools to have five first overall draft picks. The others, Auburn and Notre Dame, don’t have any players with a chance to go first overall this year. But Darnold remains under consideration for the Browns.

Circumstances can change quickly in the NFL. Just ask the Jacksonville Jaguars . A year ago, the Jaguars sat at No. 4 in the draft order after a three-win season. This year, they’re scheduled to pick 29th after a 10-win season that ended in the AFC Championship Game, where they got Tom Brady’d.  That’s what happens when you’re able to spend freely in free agency ( Calais Campbell , A.J. Bouye, Malik Jackson , and so on) and hit on some notable draft picks ( Jalen Ramsey , Myles Jack , Telvin Smith , and so on).seahawks_194

Eric Berry present at start of Chiefs’ offseason program

Last year, Chiefs safety Eric Berry skipped voluntary offseason work, then suffered a season-ending Achilles tear in Week One of the regular season. This year, Berry is there at the start of offseason workouts.
Black Daryl Williams Women's Nike NFL : Name & Number Logo #60 Carolina Panthers Pullover Hoodie
Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed that Berry was in attendance when the Chiefs opened their program on Monday. Berry was the first player Reid mentioned in saying how important he thought it was to have the teams’ veteran leaders participating.

Youth Donald Penn Jersey It’s good to have our leaders here, Reid added. The Eric Berrys, Trav [Travis Kelce] was here, and Justin Houston, and the rest of these veteran guys鈥擨 mean we bank on these veteran guys so much and again, and they’ll do a great job of leading this football team.

Lee said the Cowboys’ locker room is as close as Dustin Pedroia Womens Jersey any he has been a part of since coming in with Bryant in 2010.
Youth Erik Johnson Jersey
All I know is that I loved playing with him, and like anything any type of breakup can be tough, Lee said. But I know he’s going to be dominant and play the way he can. We can’t get into that (talk). We’ve got to move forward.

Bryant has let it be known that he would like to play against the Cowboys once — if not twice — in 2018.

Oh, it would be torture to play against a guy like that, who plays hard like he does, who makes all those plays, Lee said. As a linebacker I always felt like it was tackling a running back (with) how hard he ran, how tough he was. So that would be extremely tough for us.

But realistically, it would be unusual if he played under that number, as they’d doubtless want to extend him before that number hit the cap, assuming they still view him as the answer.

In fact, Chubb would be able to play four different spots on Bettcher’s defense, according to a source with knowledge of the Giants’ draft thinking. Chubb could line up on either side at defensive end and either side at outside linebacker.

He plays four spots for you, the source told The Post. He can play either defensive end, he can play with his hand on the ground, he’s gonna play the outside linebacker spot, on either side, just like Olivier Vernon’s gonna do. In the base scheme, he’s gonna be a stand-up outside linebacker. It’s not like the old 3-4, two-gap sit-and-read defense. This is up-the-field, penetration, cause-mayhem type.

Bettcher mentioned players (Chandler Jones, Markus Golden, Dwight Freeney and John Abraham) under his tutelage with the Colts and Cardinals who excelled in his system 鈥?players viewed as linebackers or defensive ends who morphed into difference-makers.

Byron Jones moves from safety to cornerback

Byron Jones introduced himself as a cornerback Monday, via multiple tweets. That means the Cowboys have made the anticipated move with Jones, who spent most of his first three seasons at free safety.
Jamon Brown Women's Limited Pink Jersey: Nike NFL Los Angeles Rams Rush Fashion #68
He last played corner in his rookie season of 2015 when he started four games there.

Jones, a former first-round pick, played 86.5 percent of the defensive snaps last season, all at safety. The Cowboys, though, reduced his snaps in the final four games last season. Jones has had trouble in run support and has only two career interceptions.

I want you to understand this: Neither Odell, nor his agent, have contacted Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey us regarding either report, Gettleman said.
Elite Mens Andreas Martinsen Jersey
Before becoming the Giants’ general manager, Gettleman did not have a relationship with Beckham 鈥?he spent almost 90 minutes meeting and speaking with him before the final game of last season.

Well, I know the NFL has a process they have to go through and I respect that process, Winston said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. That’s not my job to speculate on that process. My focus has been with this organization, getting the guys back in here and focusing on what we can do to be a better team this offseason.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter has previously expressed frustration with the pace of the inquiry (which began last November), but Winston said he hasn’t been interviewed by NFL investigators. He’s subject to punishment under the league’s personal conduct policy, but without having participated in an interview for them, he has no way of knowing when he’ll know something.

He said he appreciated the support from the organization, including owner Joel Glazer.
Elite Mens Ryan Smyth Jersey
It meant a lot to me because I know my work ethic for this organization, for this team is unparalleled, Winston said . You know, every day I walk in this building, I’m trying to be the best I can possibly be and be the best for this organization so to have support of ownership, it really inspires me to continue to work hard and continue to be the leader that I am.

The Bucs have little recourse, as the league moves at its own deliberate pace on these things.

Devin Hester, Matt Forte to sign one-day deals to retire with Bears
Limited Carl Lawson Youth Home Black Nike Jersey - #58 NFL Cincinnati Bengals Vapor Untouchable
Devin Hester and Matt Forte will sign one-day contracts with the Bears to retire with the organization that drafted them, the team announced Wednesday. Both players spent the first eight years of their Allen Iverson Jersey NFL careers in Chicago.

The Bears made Hester a second-round pick in 2006, and he returned three punts and two kickoffs for touchdowns as a rookie. He also returned the opening kickoff of Super Bowl XLI 92 yards for a score.

He played three more seasons after leaving the Bears after the 2014 season, spending two in Atlanta and one in Baltimore. Hester’s final season was 2016.

Brian Elliott, yanked in Game 1, had another rough outing and might need to borrow fellow Wells Fargo Center tenant Joel Embiid’s black mask to have a better look at the puck.

Jones vs. Goodell. The NFL’s biggest offseason drama of the past season, by far. Jones tried to keep the Commissioner from getting a contract extension, which was as a practical matter an effort to replace the Commissioner with someone new. It got nasty. It got ugly. The league and multiple owners believed Jones instigated former Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter to unload on league leadership during a quarterly earnings call regarding the mishandling of the anthem issue.

So what does All or Nothing say about this subject? Something far closer to nothing than all.

The only reference came in a short segment after the loss against the Falcons in Episode Five, with narrator Jon Hamm saying this: The loss in Atlanta isn’t the only thing on Jerry Jones’ mind.

Game Womens Jonathan Quick Jersey Next, a reporter is shown asking Jones if he’s still planning to sue the Competition Committee over Goodell’s contract. (Litigation was threatened against the Compensation Committee, not the Competition Committee.)

Oklahoma boosts defensive line with addition of grad transfer Jay Hayes

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.jets_055

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.

49ers linebacker Reuben Foster charged with felony domestic violence

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.
Youth Nick Boyle Elite White Nike Jersey: NFL Baltimore Ravens #86 Road Vapor Untouchable
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.

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.
