Stevan Ridley to re-sign with Steelers

Apr
13

Stevan Ridley has agreed to a one-year deal to return to the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Ridley, 29, signed with the Steelers on December 19 and played 39 snaps on offense in two games. He rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries.

He also spent four days with the Vikings last October.

He has allowed two goals or fewer in 21 of his 31 playoff starts. That includes back-to-back shutouts against the Nashville Predators en route to winning the Cup last season and giving up two or fewer scores in six of his final eight starts in winning the 2016 Cup.

Emily Kaplan, national NHL reporter: Give me Pekka Rinne as the guy who I would trust most throughout the playoffs. Sure, he has an excellent defensive group playing in front of him, but there’s a reason the four-time Vezina Trophy finalist is the front-runner for the award this season. The 35-year-old has put together strong stretches throughout his career, but he has looked as locked in as ever for the entire season (.927 save percentage, 2.32 GAA). Recency bias factors in; I’m expecting Rinne to build off his performance in last year’s postseason. Without Henrik Lundqvist in the field this year, I’m tabbing Rinne as the goaltender who can stand on his head, withstand a high volume of shots and seal a win.

He appeared in all 16 games last season, making 19 tackles, an interception and five pass breakups.

Golden, 27, was a special teams captain in Pittsburgh in 2015 and ’16.

Said Toronto Blue Jays pitcher John Axford: “It’s incredibly tragic and difficult. I keep reading about it because I want to know more about the players. I want to know about the families and their community, the people involved. And it hurts.”

Canadian golfer Adam Hadwin, a Saskatchewan native currently playing at the Masters, said: ” It shows you how short life is … You need to appreciate every moment. You need to appreciate the people around you.”

NFC in 2018 is definition of both domination and parity

Authentic Mens Kyle Fuller Jersey It’s been building for a while now, but the NFC’s takeover as the better NFL conference is complete. Somehow, though, it’s looking more like anyone’s game as to who might make the playoffs 鈥?let alone come out on top 鈥?from the conference this season.

One can make an argument that every team in the NFC has a chance to make the playoffs.

If Sam Bradford stays healthy, he, a solid defense and David Johnson could do the trick in Arizona. A big leap from Trubisky and the Bears’ revamped offense would be no shocking feat. A Bucs team on the cusp of being the next breakout team could finally have its year. And with an efficient, veteran quarterback in Alex Smith and plenty to work with on the rest of the roster, Washington has a shot, too.

Holland walked four batters in the 10th inning and forced home the go-ahead run Monday night that gave the Milwaukee Brewers a 5-4 win over the Cardinals.

It’s hard to walk four guys and consider it a success, Holland said. I struggled with my command. I felt good and just put myself in a tough spot.

There’s really no excuse for walking four guys in a row, he said.

Authentic Igor Larionov Jersey The 32-year-old Holland, who tied for the NL lead with 41 saves for Colorado last season, signed as a free agent on opening day. He pitched two innings at Class A before joining the Cardinals earlier in the day.

Holland (0-1) walked two batters to begin the 10th. After a sacrifice bunt by Eric Sogard, an intentional walk loaded the bases.

You know, they gave me the option there to swing. They really did, said Sogard, who entered the game batting .071 but got three hits. I see in that situation Ryan Suter USA Authentic Jersey to even risk not getting the job done was not acceptable.

Thursday’s NFL: MSU alum Shurmur, Giants face QB pick

It’s really happening, he thought. I’m really coaching for the New York Giants.

Authentic Youth Karl Mecklenburg Jersey Shula is football royalty, the son of the great Hall of Famer Don Shula, the winningest coach in NFL history.

Start with this: Davis Webb, the rising second-year QB already in the building, feels like the kind of committed worker, born leader and quiet killer Shurmur and Shula would love.

Kids Pavel Datsyuk Jersey The lack of NFL game tape on Webb may force the Giants to draft a quarterback at No. 2 anyway, for fear of the unknown. Shula even admitted he hasn’t quite gotten a handle on Webb yet since the coach has been on the road so frequently. He reiterated the Giants’ pre-draft minicamp from April 24-26 is an important three days for Webb.

If the Giants do draft a QB, though, the humble-but-impressive Allen and the easygoing-yet-driven Darnold feel like they could fit the profile of what Shurmur and Shula value most.

The former Wisconsin Badger is scheduled to have it surgically repaired next week, according to sources informed of the situation.

The emphasis on being able to authentically connect with each player is the most important thing, Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay, a Millennial himself at age 32, told USA TODAY Sports in a聽phone interview.

The challenge as a coach is to be intentional and provide a why you’re doing it for your players. Because if your guys understand the why, then they can at least understand everything has a purpose, and that opens up the lines of communication. So if you explain the why, and they have a different viewpoint聽鈥斅燼nd you’re open to the point where you think it might give you a chance to do something in a more efficient manner 鈥?then it’s good for us to be coachable as a coach because you’re held accountable by conscientious players.

The New Orleans Saints QB has filed a lawsuit against Vahid Moradi — who runs the CJ Charles jewelry shop in San Diego, the city where Brees began his NFL career.

But this is a different kind of excitement than the Bears have had in the past – pairing an offensive-minded, young coach with a rookie quarterback who impressed his teammates a year ago has brought a certain buzz to Lake Forest.聽 Bears players will start to really get to know Nagy over the next few months. But for Long, he was already confident in what Trubisky can do in 2018 not just from a production standpoint, but from a leadership one too. And that’ll come to the forefront as the offseason program rolls on in the coming weeks and months.聽 What Mitch Trubisky was born with was something that not a lot of people were born with, Long said. I can’t explain it. When you’re around him, you feel it and it’s real. (He has a) quiet confidence and a sense of calm and comfortability with the situation, any situation he’s put in.聽

The Los Angeles Rams have Brent Urban Authentic Jersey acquired receiver Brandin Cooks and a fourth-round pick in a trade with the New England Patriots, the team announced via its official site. The Rams are sending their first-round pick in the upcoming draft (No. 23 selection) and a sixth-round pick to the Patriots, according to the announcement.
Elite Devon Kennard Jersey
Cooks lands on his second new team in as many years, being dealt from the organization that acquired him via trade last offseason. The speedster who was sorely missed in the latter stages of Super Bowl LII leaves New England after posting a 65-catch, 1,082-yard season that also included seven touchdowns.

Cooks is perhaps the league’s best receiver to get traded twice in such a young career with plenty of promise and production. The game-breaking wideout is one of only three players with 1,000-plus receiving yards and five-plus receiving touchdowns in each of the last three seasons. The other two: Antonio Brown and Larry Fitzgerald.

It’s a catch: NFL owners approve simplified catch language

It’s a catch: NFL owners approve simplified catch language More ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Maybe it’s too late for Jesse James and the Steelers or Zach Miller and the Bears. No matter, the NFL has a simplified catch rule designed to eliminate confusion — and, the league hopes, controversy — about receptions. Team owners unanimously approved the new language Tuesday, with basically three elements defining a catch: —having control of the ball; —getting two feet down or another body part; —making a football move, such as taking a third step or extending the ball. We wanted to simplify and provide clarity, Pittsburgh coach and longtime competition committee member Mike Tomlin said. It was time to do so after we got caught up in language that didn’t do that.

Encarnacion hit his second career inside-the-park homer and Tyler Naquin and Yonder Alonso cleared the fences for the Indians, who beat Los Angeles 6-0 Monday night to spoil the Angels’ home opener and snap their three-game win streak.

Encarnacion hit a high fly ball off JC Ramirez that left fielder Justin Upton tracked into the corner with one out in the second inning. The ball hit the yellow line on the padding below the foul pole and caromed several feet away from Upton, coming to a stop on the warning track.

Upton leaned over the short fence for just a moment, apparently thinking the ball had landed foul. By the time Upton chased it down and threw it in, the 230-pound Encarnacion was steaming around third base on his way to scoring standing up.

Encarnacion also hit an inside-the-park homer on Aug. 31, 2007, against St. Louis while with the Cincinnati Reds, back when he was 24. He homered twice Sunday in a loss at Seattle.patriots_109

I know I’ve rubbed people the wrong way, Manziel added. I know there’s still people that still doubt what I’m doing and still doubt where I’m at.

For me, I have spurts in the past of being good. I have spurts in the past of showing promise and looking like I’m on the right path, and when I think I get there, something else happens. That’s kind of the pattern that’s been there in the last couple years of my life since college. So for me, the key right now is to be consistent, and to continue what I’m doing day in and day out.

Maxwell had 38 tackles, an interception, a forced fumble and seven passes defended in his seven games to end the year. He had been released by the Miami Dolphins in October after losing his starting job with the team.

Maxwell would provide a trusted veteran option for the Seahawks in a defense he knows inside and out. With Sherman being released and signing with the San Francisco 49ers, Maxwell would currently be penciled in as a starter alongside Griffin in Seattle’s secondary.

Maxwell said at the end of the season he wanted to be back with Seattle. The interest appears to be mutual. Now all that matters is agreeing on a deal.
