Brandon Beane: We have to get better at a lot of spots


Ever since the Bills made a trade with the Bengals that moved them up to the 12th spot in the first round, it hasn’t been hard to find people who think that’s just the first step in a move even further up the order for a quarterback.
Nike NFL Tom Rathman Red Jersey Women's Elite: #44 San Francisco 49ers Home Vapor Untouchable
General Manager Brandon Beane has done his best to counter the inevitability of such a move and continues to do so with the start of the draft just hours away. Beane told Aditi Kinkhabwala that the team isn’t in position to move up for the sake of moving up.

Barkley has potential to be a special, once-in-a-generation talent and the Giants would be crazy to pass him up.

Game Womens Vincent Rey Jersey Barkley, with his rare combination of running and receiving talent, when teamed with Odell Beckham Jr., can turn the Giants offense into a video game 鈥?with Manning gleefully manning the joystick.

I understand it’s a big topic, Telesco said, via the Los Angeles Daily News. I just don’t have an update on it right now.

Gates, who turns 38 in June, caught 30 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns last season. He moved into a lesser role with Hunter Henry taking on more responsibility and the Chargers added Virgil Green at the position in free agency.

Mark Sanchez: Thrown to the wolves and coddled by the front office, the Sanchize nevertheless reached AFC Championship games his Jordan Crawford Womens Jersey first two seasons supported by Ground & Pound and Rex Ryan’s defense. Santonio Holmes did him no favors after that, and things deteriorated so dramatically it gave us the ill-fated Buttfumble. In four seasons as a Jet, he threw 82 TDs and 80 INTs.

Geno Smith: IK Enemkpali. Down goes Geno 鈥?down goes Geno 鈥?down goes Geno. In four seasons as a Jet, Smith threw 28 TDs and 36 INTs.

Mark Canha broke a scoreless tie in the sixth with his third homer, a solo shot that went in and out of leaping right fielder Nomar Mazara’s glove just above the fence. Matt Olson hit an RBI double in the eighth.

Pat Bowlen reportedly in failing health

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, who relinquished control of the team earlier this decade while battling Alzheimer’s disease, reportedly is in failing health.

Woody Paige of the Colorado Springs Gazette reports that Bowlen’s physical condition is declining dramatically.

Bowlen, who bought the team in 1984, placed the team into trust upon stepping down. The trustees eventually will decide whether any of Bowlen’s seven children are suited to take over the team.

Cam Newton Authentic Jersey If you win in New York, you’re going to be loved in New York for a long time, and that goes back to the Joe Namath thing, Allen, the strong-armed quarterback from Wyoming, said at a youth event outside AT&T Stadium on the eve of the draft. Being in that situation would be really cool. 鈥?I would love the idea Aaron Gordon Jersey of it.

Allen, Darnold, and Rosen, along with Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, could wind up in New York 鈥?either with the Jets, who pick third, or the Giants, who pick second. Big Blue, however, could take running back Saquon Barkley and try to win one more Super Bowl with Eli Manning.

To find a draft when there was this much intrigue on draft day about what would happen with the early picks, you have to go all the way back to 2004, when the Chargers selected Eli Manning. That year, Manning was generally viewed as the top prospect, but he had vowed not to play for the Chargers, and there were questions about whether the Chargers would trade the pick, draft someone else or drat Manning and try to convince him to play for them.

As it turned out, the Chargers drafted Manning and then traded him an hour later to the Giants, who drafted Philip Rivers and traded him to the Chargers, along with their third-round pick and first-round pick and fifth-round pick the next year.

We don’t expect anything like that to happen with the first overall pick this year, but we don’t know what will happen. And that’s going to make draft day more fun.

A statement Mora made to Sports Illustrated about Rosen needing to be intellectually challenged also caused waves. Again, Mora said he believes it is a positive that Rosen is always asking, Why?

Gronk: I won’t be at Pats’ workouts, I’ve got dirt biking to work on


Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski isn’t planning to show up for the team’s voluntary offseason workouts, and he isn’t shy about explaining why: Right now his focus is dirt bikes.

Clichés fly early and often when talking to a team down 0-3 in a series, mainly because for the first time they are not giving you hallow platitudes when they say it is all about winning one game because there is no tomorrow and your back is against the wall. The Kings know they need to win four games in a row, but that can’t happen without first winning one on Tuesday. It’s a daunting task, but one that the Kings are familiar with.

“Having a few guys that have been through it definitely helps, but we’ve got to focus on winning one game and we’ll move on from there,” said Los Angeles defenseman Jake Muzzin. “We won one game at a time [in 2014] and we had guys in the room that believed we could come back and we were able to. You just have to believe and trust the team and trust the plan. You have to work extremely hard and if you believe and trust and focus, you can accomplish some pretty great things.”

His latest brutalization was noted by USA Today’s Josh Peter, who wrote that women’s college basketball “could use a mercy rule. Or a coach who knows how to show mercy.”

Asked about that by the Hartford Courant, Auriemma said, “That dope from USA Today — I don’t even know his name — I guarantee he didn’t see the game. He doesn’t know what happened.”

I’ve seen dozens of his games, and most were similar to this one — only not quite as twisted.

And unless the play-by-play sheet and boxscore were sabotaged, what went down was inexcusable, as 33-0 UConn, already ridiculously lopsided winners, piled it on.

Auriemma’s team played, as he explains it, “the way we always play,” which seems more a self-indictment than a reasonable explanation.

Sports unions want a seat at the table on gambling


With legalized wagering on sporting events possibly coming soon, the unions representing the players who play the game have spoken out, in one voice.
Youth Nike Philadelphia Eagles #31 Jalen Mills Limited Olive/Camo 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
The players associations representing Major League Baseball, the NBA, the NFL, and the NHL have issued the following statement: Given the pending Supreme Court decision regarding the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PAPSA), representatives of the MLBPA, NBPA, NFLPA and NHLPA have been working together on the legal, commercial, practical and human consequences of allowing sports betting to become mainstream. The time has come to address not just who profits from sports gambling, but also the costs.
Limited Kids Sam Koch Jersey
The reality is (or at least seems to be) that the leagues and the unions realize that legalized betting will result in billions of dollars changing hands in a manner that allows leagues and/or unions to stick out a hand and hope it fills up. I can’t fault them for trying, but I also can’t imagine any state legislature saying anything to those who provide the basis for the betting other than, Your sports will benefit from the increased interest driven by legal gambling. It will remain your obligation to ensure that your games have integrity.

The crowd, fired up about the opportunity the Wild had to even the series, produced plenty of collective groans after difficult saves by Hellebuyck after jeering him in Game 3 with the customary Sieve! Sieve! Sieve! chant. One of Hellebuyck’s most important stops came in the opening minutes of the second period, when a 3-on-1 rush by the Wild set up Matt Dumba for a wrist try denied with a sprawling glove stop.

After a tightly whistled game here Sunday night, there were only three penalties called.

Scheifele was part of the sandwich hit with Ben Chiarot late in the third period of Game 3 on Parise that led to a broken sternum for the Wild’s all-time postseason scoring leader, a stunning setback for the home team revealed about four hours before Game 4.

The agitation in the arena spiked a little later in the first period, when the Jets kept the puck in the Wild zone after a failed clearing attempt and Kyle Connor fed Scheifele with a slick give-and-go pass for the 1-0 Kam Chancellor Youth jersey lead right before the first intermission.

Then Hellebuyck and the Jets defense took over.

Seahawks taking a look at another quarterback


Coach Carroll, call for you on line two. It’s Russell Wilson’s camp.
Women's Lance Stephenson Swingman Navy Blue Jersey: Nike NBA #1 Indiana Pacers Icon Edition
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and General Manager John Schneider were at a private workout yesterday for Texas A&M wide receiver Christian Kirk, Arizona State running back Kalen Ballage and Houston quarterback Kyle Allen.

That’s understandable from Gentry’s perspective, but the rest of us can appreciate the daunting task the Blazers now face. Of the 20 teams to lose the first two games of a best-of-seven series at home since 1984, just three have come back to win the series. (One of those comebacks happened last year, when the Boston Celtics rallied to beat the Bulls after Rondo — then with Chicago — was sidelined for the series following Game 2.)

If Holiday keeps playing at this level, New Orleans won’t have any reason to worry about reaching the second round for just the second time in the franchise’s 16 years in the Crescent City.

I wouldn’t say it surprised Colorado Rockies Authentic Jersey me, but I just didn’t like it, Johnson said on former teammate Arian Foster’s podcast, via the Houston Chronicle. To know you did so much for a franchise and to have him come out and say something like that. At the end of the day, you don’t make the money if we don’t run it. If you take some people off the street and put them in there, nobody’s coming to watch that. It was real touchy with me. I even thought about not doing the ring ceremony.

Gonzalez also managed to knock down Wilmer Flores’ line-drive single without it causing any damage, though it caught a piece of his glove hand.

Limited Kids Will Redmond Jersey Juan Lagares remained a nemesis for Gonzalez. Lagares went 2 for 2 with a walk and raised his career average against the lefty to .413 — Lagares’ 19 hits are the most Gonzalez has given up to any batter.

Zack Wheeler (1-1) gave up three runs in six innings in his second start of the season. Hit hard by the Nationals in his final two spring training outings, he began in the year in the minors.

I thought I did OK, he said.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a better team than shown by the results of the first two games of the first-round playoff series with the Boston Bruins.


They proved it Monday with a 4-2 victory at the Air Canada Centre in Game 3. They will have a chance Thursday night to even the series at two games each at the ACC.
Men's Justin Holiday Authentic Black Alternate Jersey: Adidas NBA #7 Chicago Bulls
We knew we had to be better than we were in the first two games and we came into that game with more motivation, we came in more competitive, Toronto defenseman Morgan Rielly said Wednesday. That’s what we felt we had to do as a group. I think we all did that.

The Bruins won the first two games of the series 5-1 and 7-3 in Boston.

The Bruins are impressed by the stretch passes used by the Maple Leafs.

It’s tough, Boston defenseman Charlie McAvoy said. We’ve seen it a couple times this series where the D will jump in and next thing you know they’re off to the races. They play that style where they just want to counter so fast with their speed. They want to use their speed at all times. So, you’ve really got to make sure you’re counting five guys all the time and keeping them in front of you because they’ll go for those stretches, those breakaways.

Tampa Bay can wrap up the best-of-seven series in Game 5 at home on Saturday.

Elite Womens Sean Davis Jersey Kyle Palmieri scored on a 5-on-3 advantage for the Devils, who are back in the playoffs for the first time Authentic Matt Cullen Jersey since reaching the Stanley Cup Final in 2012. It was the only time they beat Vasilevskiy, whose 44 wins in the regular season shared the league lead with Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck. Cory Schneider made 34 saves for New Nersey in starting his second straight game.

This game might have been the roughest of the series, especially in the first period when the Lightning took a 2-1 lead in a session with a lot of scrums.

Elite Womens Brian Boyle Jersey The play everyone is going to talk about and the NHL probably will look at is Kucherov’s hit on Sami Vatanen late in the first. No penalty was called but the league’s No. 3 scorer appeared to jump before hitting Vatanen in the shoulder and head area. Devils coach coach John Hynes screamed at the officials after the play.

Ohio State offensive lineman Matthew Burrell transferring


Offensive lineman Matthew Burrell announced Wednesday that he is transferring from Ohio State.

Burrell is a redshirt junior who was in the top-100 recruiting rankings for the 2015 class when he signed with the Buckeyes.

“I am thankful for everything this amazing university has done for me,” Burrell wrote on Instagram. “Being a Buckeye is a once in a lifetime opportunity on the field and off. That being said, and after prayer and thought, I will be transferring from OSU.”

Maybe Portland could get its guards going by using someone other than Davis’ man to screen for them. That’s what they did to generate this clutch McCollum 3-pointer:

Although it isn’t clear why Burrell decided to leave, he was not a starter in 2017 and only saw sparing game action after guard Branden Bowen was injured. Burrell played in 13 games during his redshirt freshman season.

The Buckeyes lost left tackle Jamarco Jones and center Billy Price to the NFL draft, but are bringing back Bowen, guards Michael Jordan and Demetrius Knox as well as tackle Isaiah Prince among the starters from last season.

The charges of harm to a public servant, eluding police and resisting arrest have been dropped, according to the report, quoting a Broward state’s attorney spokesman as saying, “There was a possible discrepancy regarding the initial estimated speed, but there is no doubt that the defendant was driving recklessly. The other charges were declined, not filed, due to insufficient evidence.’’

Anderson now faces one misdemeanor count of reckless driving. Anderson also is facing charges from an arrest last spring for resisting arrest at a concert in May 2017. A hearing for that trial recently was postponed to Aug. 6.

He could be disciplined by the NFL under the league’s personal conduct policy. Anderson last season had 63 receptions and led the Jets with 941 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer disappointed in rotation’s struggles


Before Tuesday night’s game, Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer was clear about what has been the most disappointing aspect in an uneven start for the National League Central division favorites.
NFL Parker Ehinger Ash : #79 Kansas City Chiefs Nike One Color Pullover Hoodie
When it comes to the pitching part of it, he said. I think that’s where it’s been difficult to get into a rhythm. Pitchers with good control and good command have struggled to throw Nolan Ryan Jersey strikes.

As if on cue, Tyler Chatwood backed up those comments with a rare performance against the St. Louis Cardinals in a 5-3 loss: 4.2 innings pitched, seven strikeouts and seven walks. According to ESPN Stats & Information data, only two pitchers compiled at least seven and seven in less than five innings pitched last year. Before that, it hadn’t happened since 2008. It meant throwing a lot of pitches — 97 — in a short outing, not exactly what fielders want when the temperature is 35 degrees at first pitch.

Limited Womens Bobby Clarke Jersey The Cubs had a slow beginning to last season on the mound, eventually righting the ship in the second half — and that includes their starting staff. But last year, they had the championship hangover to get over; this year, it’s just cold weather and some postponements. But every team has dealt with the same conditions, some thriving better than others.

Previous winners include the Dalai Lama, Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Nelson Mandela, Colin Powell, Jesse Owens, John Wayne, Walt Disney, Jonas Salk, Thomas Edison and Charles Lindbergh.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen could face a draft day slide


In asking most NFL Draft experts, either UCLA’s Josh Rosen or USC’s Sam Darnold is the top quarterback in a loaded class at that position.
Women's Thon Maker Swingman White Nike Jersey: NBA Milwaukee Bucks #7 Association Edition
While there might not be a lot of off-field or injury concerns surrounding Darnold, the same can’t be said for Rosen. By now, his outspoken mentality is already known. Though, it’s injury concerns that continue to pop up surrounding the former Bruin.

McVay also pointed to the presence of defensive coordinator Wade Phillips as a reason to feel confident that everything will Andy Dalton Jersey work out well for the Rams after adding players like Suh, Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib to the defense this offseason.

I think the defensive coordinator has more swag than all of them, so we’ll be in good shape, McVay said.

Elite Youth Brendan Smith Jersey All the new additions will increase the expectations that the Rams take a step forward from last year’s division title and first-round playoff exit. Making sure all the new pieces gel will be important to reaching those expectations and the team’s ability to make that happen will be a major storyline in Los Angeles this season.

Sherels averaged 9.5 yards on punt returns and 24.6 yards on kickoff returns. He ranked second in the league in punt return average in 2013 and 2016.

Three of the Vikings’ unrestricted free agents remain unsigned, and the team has interest in bringing back cornerback Terence Newman. Receiver Michael Floyd and running back Bishop Sankey are not expected to return, via Tomasson.

I think the guy’s in there, Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. I really do.

Jackson also said that the Browns, who hold the first and fourth selections in round one, are on the verge of figuring out which guy is the guy.
Drew Storen Youth Jersey
I think we’re very close, Jackson said. Yeah, I think we’re close. We just haven’t had the chance to be together. I gave the staff the week off. They’re vacationing. We’re here at the owners meetings and we’ll get together here soon and put our heads together and see what’s best.

Leafs’ Andersen sets franchise record for wins in a season


The Toronto Maple Leafs know they’ve just completed the best statistical season in franchise history.
Mikael Backlund Game Jersey Men's Limited Andre Roberts Black Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Alternate #19 NFL Atlanta Falcons Nike
And Klay Thompson Youth jersey Frederik Andersen knows he now holds the team’s all-time record for goalie wins in a season.

What remains a mystery for the Leafs is their first-round playoff opponent.

Sami Vatanen Game Jersey Andersen made 31 saves to pick up his 38th victory of the season Saturday and Toronto closed out its schedule by defeating the Montreal Canadiens 4-2.

Right now, the Wizards just need to win a game. Friday night’s home loss to last-place Atlanta saw the Wizards plagued by poor defense and a selfish offense.

Not passing the ball to one another. Simple as that. Nobody wanted to share the basketball tonight, coach Scott Brooks said. When you do that, you end up taking bad shots. When you take bad shots, you end up missing. Simple game. You pass it to your teammate.

In 2017, New England sent its first-round pick to New Orleans for Brandin Cooks and sent its second-round pick to Carolina for Kony Ealy. New England’s first pick that year was No. 83 overall.

This chart shows just how strikingly different the Patriots’ draft capital in recent years has been from other teams. In the last three drafts, the Patriots have had exactly one pick in the Top 59. Every other team in the NFL has had at least four, while most teams have had six or more.

This year, the Patriots have changed their approach. New England just acquired the 23rd overall pick by trading Cooks to the Rams, and New England still has its own first-round pick, No. 31 overall. The Patriots also have the 43rd overall pick from the 49ers, acquired in the Jimmy Garoppolo trade, and the Patriots still have their own second-round pick, No. 63 overall.
