Mayfield goes No. 1 to start mad dash for QBs in draft

Quarterback desperation means NFL teams can’t pass on taking a passer — even a flawed one — in the draft.

The Browns, Jets, Bills and Cardinals heeded that notion Thursday night, even as more highly rated players at other positions remained on the board.

Same deal in Cleveland, the Meadowlands and the desert.

The Browns’ nearly two-decade search for that quarterback led them to Mayfield. Until the last few days, the Oklahoma product was considered a longshot to be the top pick. He goes from a former walk-on to No. 1 overall. Mayfield is the first Heisman recipient taken first in the following draft since Cam Newton went to Carolina in 2010.

Mayfield, who could sit behind the newly acquired Taylor, joins a team that went 0-16 in 2017.

Both sides are working toward it and we’re confident we’ll come to an agreement soon, Gutekunst said, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.

Sources said he leaned heavily on Jones in coming to a conclusion.

Witten could not be reached for comment. On Wednesday, executive vice president Stephen Jones said there was no timeline on when Witten would make a decision.

Another network made what was termed an interesting offer that would allow him to keep playing and potentially walk away in 2019, according to a source.

Ultimately, he opted to retire to start a new chapter in his life after one of the most successful runs in Cowboys’ history.

Witten leaves as the Cowboys’ all-time leader in games Cheap Hockey Jerseys played, consecutive games played, starts, catches and receiving yards. When he played in his 11th Pro Bowl last January, he tied Bob Lilly for the most in team history. He is fourth in NFL history in catches behind only Jerry Rice, Tony Gonzalez and Larry Fitzgerald. Only Gonzalez has more Cheap Houston Rockets Jerseys receiving yards among tight ends in NFL history.

Chance Sisco’s bunt vs. shift in 9th upsets Twins

Minnesota Twins players were upset Sunday that Baltimore Orioles catcher Chance Sisco bunted against the shift for a hit in the ninth inning of Minnesota’s 7-0 victory.

With one out in the ninth, Sisco bunted toward the vacant left side of the infield to get on base. The Orioles eventually loaded the bases, but Jose Berrios worked out of trouble, getting Jonathan Schoop to pop out to the catcher and Adam Jones to strike out to complete the three-hit shutout.

Despite that, Twins second baseman Brian Dozier spoke out about Sisco’s bunt after the game.

Before his bunt in the ninth, Sisco had the only other hit for the Orioles to that point, a double in the third.

Godley’s outing was particularly valuable inasmuch as Arizona used eight pitchers in an 8-7, 15-inning victory over the Dodgers on Tuesday, which set a Chase Field record at five hours, 45 minutes. Had the game gone 16 innings, catcher Jeff Mathis was to pitch.

My goal each and every time out is to do everything I can to help the team win, Godley said. This is one of those times where it called for me to go a little bit longer. I’m glad I could do that.

The Diamondbacks have won four straight series and eight straight regular-season games against the Dodgers, who swept them in the NLDS in October.

Zack had a good game plan. When he needed to make pitches, he did, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. He was aggressive with his fastball, and that led to a lot of negative swings on the breaking ball. I really believe in our five starters. I’m really pleased with us beating Clayton Kershaw.

The rule comes after injury data released by the league in January showed a 13.5 percent increase in diagnosed concussions from 2016 to 2017 (243 to 281) over the preseason and regular season. The increase comes after 28 percent of concussion evaluations were self-reported by players — a nine-point increase over 2016.

McKay said the hit that led to Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier suffering a spinal injury during a game in December was not necessarily what spurred the league to expand the helmet-hit rule.

I think the impetus was the research, McKay said, because the more we saw of the concussion plays and the more there was a common technique, it became more apparent that we needed to get out of situationally saying, ‘Well, if a player Toronto Maple Leafs Cheap Jerseys is targeted or if a defenseless player is in the air we need to get to the Super Cheap Jerseys Fans technique that can protect the person doing the hitting also.’ It could be Ryan Shazier, it could be many others.

Another solid start for Red Sox as Johnson beats Marlins

The Rams — who had explored a trade for Odell Beckham Jr. but liked the Cooks option better — were seeking a vertical threat for second-year coach Sean McVay’s dynamic offense after Sammy Watkins joined the Kansas City Chiefs in free agency.

The speedy Cooks, who totaled 65 receptions for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns for the Patriots last season, fills that void alongside Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. Cooks had 16 receptions on passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield last season, tied with DeAndre Hopkins for most in the NFL.

As long as we get enough snaps, McVay said, we will be able to keep everybody happy.

The Giants and Rams already made one trade this offseason, with linebacker Alec Ogletree and a 2019 draft pick coming east in exchange for two 2018 draft picks.

Gettleman has made two trades — he sent Jason Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers — this month after his predecessor Jerry Reese was quiet in the trade market.

Mara seemed to be trying to send a message to Beckham — get in line with Giants’ behavioral standards or no long-term extension — but Beckham’s Cheap Queensland Reds Jerseys camp responded by floating the powerful card of a holdout.

Beckham is scheduled to make $8.45 million on the option year of his rookie contract and is susceptible to franchise tags in 2019 and 2020. He wants more guaranteed money and security.

Beckham trains in California in the offseason. He is rehabbing a broken ankle that cost him the final 10 games of last season, though Giants coach Pat Shurmur said he is on track and should be ready to go for the season-opener.

Navarro founded Sherman Financial, and two sources confirmed that the NFL is now vetting him. There was concern on the part of some owners over how Navarro made his money—a piece of it was in debt collection—and a case he settled in New York in 2014 over repeatedly bringing improper debt collection actions against New York consumers. A source close to Navarro emphasized that this wasn’t bad practices; this was for a missed statute of limitations, and added that the fine assessed ($175,000) was relatively small in that world.

One example given: Bank of America was fined $42 million for fraud last week. Navarro has hired a PR agency, Luquire George Andrews, to help Cheap Retro Jerseys manage the criticism, and the agency was adamant on Tuesday that Sherman Financial should not be characterized as a debt collector.

Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah’s 2017 stat sheet was surprisingly good, featuring 12 sacks after just two in 2016.

The film didn’t necessarily back up those numbers, as six of the sacks came in two games against poor competition. Nevertheless, the Detroit Lions did the right thing in franchise-tagging him.

Ansah showed an uptick in effectiveness this year, even if he wasn’t as impressive as he was in his first three seasons. The dearth of edge-rushers in the free-agent market and even in the 2018 draft class means there will continue to be interest in the position. The Lions still need an edge-rusher even with Ansah on the roster, so losing him would have created an impossible hole to fill.

The money the Packers spent was especially notable. They dropped $30 million over three years for Graham, and Wilkerson, looking to rehabilitate his image after a tumultuous stint with the New York Jets, signed a one-year deal worth up to $8 million. The Packers also tried to lure Chicago Bears star cornerback Kyle Fuller with a four-year deal worth $56 million, but it was matched by the Bears within hours.

Green Bay still has significant work to do to solidify a roster with zero proven cornerbacks and after losing franchise stalwart Jordy Nelson. The future looks much more promising, though, now that the front office seemingly understands the stakes of having a talent like Rodgers.

They aren’t the only team that has been connected to the Nebraska product, as Dianna Russini of ESPN reported the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks were interested, while Jane Slater of NFL Network cited a source who said Suh was set to visit the New Orleans Saints.

One look at Suh’s resume explains why multiple teams are interested in him heading into the 2018 campaign. In addition to the Pro Bowls, he has three first-team All-Pro selections and the 2010 Associated Press Rookie of the Year on his list of accomplishments as a consistent playmaker on the defensive side.

He entered the league in 2010 as the No. 2 overall draft pick and Fashion Online Shop Cheap Jerseys dominated from the start with 10 sacks as a rookie. He tallied 36 sacks in five seasons with the Detroit Lions and then posted 15.5 sacks Giants Cheap Jerseys in three years with Miami.

Daniel Murphy takes first on-field BP of spring

Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy didn’t experience any issues during his first on-field batting practice of the spring on Saturday.

Working his way back from offseason knee surgery, Murphy had only progressed as far as hitting in the batting cages.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen overhand pitching, so you want to reinforce that I can take it and there’s not going to be any discomfort — which there wasn’t, so that was, I think first and foremost, that was a really positive sign,” Murphy said.

Saturday also marked the first time center fielder Michael A. Taylor took batting practice on the field since being scratched from Monday’s lineup with side tightness.

“Body feels good,” Taylor said. “Starting to loosen up a little bit. Feel like I’m in a good spot.”

“I was talking with Bron. He sets a really great example for how to take care of yourself. I think physically we’re OK; I think mentally it’s easy to get tired right now,” Korver said. “It’s been a grind of a year. We’ve got to find ways to stay fresh. You’ve got to find ways to fill your cup. We’re all different, and we all have to find our own way to do that.”

Korver, like James, did not want to label the Cavs at the moment.

“It’s hard to gauge because we just have so many guys out,” Korver said. “We’re so low on big men right now. So when we’re small, they’re just kind of switching everything on us and we’re not able to — there’s not a lot of movement out there for us. That’s what makes basketball fun is when the ball is moving, bodies are moving and hopping.

Every game is important right now for the Kings, who have won five of seven and eight of 12 despite being embarrassed 7-2 in a loss to the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night at the Staples Center. Los Angeles is 1-0-1 against the Coyotes this season, losing 3-2 in overtime on Nov. 24 but beating them 6-0 on Feb. 3. The teams play against March 29 in Los Angeles.

“It was a good bounce-back game for us, and two points we really needed,” Toffoli said of the win over Vancouver. “It was huge. We focused on tonight (Monday) and now we’ve got to start worrying about tomorrow (Tuesday), and we’ll do that.”

Kings center Jeff Carter has four goals and two assists in eight Cheap Epl Jerseys Cheap Dri Fit Jerseys games since a Feb. 24 return from a 55-game layoff with an injured tendon in his leg. Carter has seven goals and 11 assists in 29 career games against Arizona.

Carson Wentz injury update: Eagles QB starting 2018 season ‘realistic’

Carson Wentz is confident he’ll be back under center at the start of the 2018 season.

The Eagles quarterback has a “realistic” chance of making his return in next season’s opening game after suffering a torn ACL and LCL in a Week 14 win over the Rams in December, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

While his Week 1 appearance isn’t guaranteed, the surgeon who performed the operation on Wentz’s knee expressed optimism that he could be healthy enough to put in work at training camp barring any further setbacks in his recovery.

Rosen is doing his part both on and off the field to show he belongs atop that list.

Rosen is training and restructuring his diet at Proactive Sports Performance in Southern California. He’s working on actual quarterbacking with the same tutors at 3DQB that have helped fine-tune the mechanics of current NFL stars like Tom Brady, Matt Ryan and Matt Stafford.

“I’m working on the board, we watch film, get out on the field and throw it around a little bit,” Rosen said. “I’ve made I think some pretty good strides. It’s fun to get out there and chuck the ball around.”

Dorenbos, 37, had to cut his football career short and undergo open-heart surgery, but the Eagles still honored him in a huge way. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie invited him to Minneapolis to watch them take on the Patriots in Super Bowl 52.

“Had I played, I’d die. If you can’t play in it, this is the next best way to enjoy it,” Dorenbos told the New Orleans Advocate. “Mr. Lurie called me and said he wants me to be a part of it, said I was here a long time and he said ‘We’re going to win this, and you’re going to get a ring.'”

After the Eagles won 41-33, Dorenbos was asked if he had any regrets of being traded right before Philadelphia’s historic season, which saw the team win Wholesale NHL Jerseys its first Super Bowl title.

“My fate was what it was,” Dorenbos said. “I’m just Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale happy to be around guys I played with for so long.”

Big Baller Brand has also been knocked for not providing refunds and poor customer service in general.

The euphoric belief that Aaron Rodgers would lead the Packers on a Super Bowl run upon his return evaporated in less than 48 hours with their loss and the Falcons’ Monday night win. Having him back wasn’t good enough against the Panthers, so how good will it be against a better Vikings team, bitter rivalry or not? Also, this is the team that broke his collarbone in the first place. There just are no good signs for the Packers in this one.

It’s their second meeting in three weeks; the Saints won in Atlanta last time, saved by the dramatic Deion Jones end-zone interception. The importance for both teams’ playoff chances can’t be overstated. The challenge for the Saints is stopping Julio Jones; for the Falcons, it’s slowing Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Trust the Falcons’ defense more, and trust Jones just about as much.

The Panthers may have a lot of what they call “distractions” this week, but they won’t be distracted enough to let the bad-luck (and bad-playing) Bucs come into their building with this much at stake and let them take this game. The way Cam Newton is playing lately brings to mind how hurt he had to have been all of last season, from beginning to end, because it simply looks like an aberration in hindsight.

As resourceful and resilient as the Patriots continue to prove themselves to be, let it not be forgotten that they needed the break of the year (the touchdown reversal at the end) to beat the Steelers. Being just as resourceful and resilient should be good enough against the Bills, who are not laughingstocks lately. They might not break a lot on defense, but Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy should be able to bend them a few times.

“This company does not offer refunds,” one entry says. “I purchased NFL Jerseys Free Shipping 2 items and was told there would be a 1-2 week delay. I have been waiting 6 weeks now, and Wholesale NFL Jerseys Nike when I asked why it was taking so long, I was called a ‘small baller’. At this point I believe they have decided to steal my money.”

The company is selling Lonzo Ball’s signature shoes for $495, while his youngest brother LaMelo’s shoes go for $395.

If you were ever, at any point, considering buying from Big Baller Brand, do so at your own risk.

Updated, Jan. 9, 11:05 a.m. ET: The Better Business Bureau actually does verify customer reviews before posting them.

Gorman talked about his frustrations with Thomas and the Celtics on 98.5 The Hub in Boston on Wednesday morning.

Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars: After a five-week run during which Bortles scored at least 18.52 fantasy points in each game, the Jaguars quarterback finally struggled on Sunday, scoring only 3.22 fantasy points. His was the lowest score by any quarterback who attempted 15 or more passes in Week 17. Fortunately, Bortles was started in a strangely low 21.4 percent of ESPN leagues. He wasn’t started in greater than 25.6 percent in any week all season.

LeSean McCoy, RB, Buffalo Bills: For the second time this season, McCoy managed more rushing attempts than rushing yards, his 10 yards on 11 carries resulting in 5.2 PPR and 3.2 non-PPR fantasy points. Only 10 times in his 132 previous games played did he score fewer PPR fantasy points. McCoy was the most-started running back in ESPN leagues, active in 99.1 percent.

A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: His disappointing season concluded with a 3.7 PPR fantasy point performance on 10 targets, his second-lowest score all year. Green finished 2017 with 226.8 PPR and 151.8 non-PPR fantasy points in 16 games; those were his fewest in any of his four career seasons in which he played in every game (2012, 2013, 2015 and 2017). He was active in 95.6 percent of ESPN leagues, fourth-highest among wide receivers in Week 17.

He respects what Thomas did in his short stint in Boston, but thinks the notion that Thomas will be recognized on the same day as Pierce is too much.

“I don’t think they would. I don’t know for a fact, but if I were in the room and Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale had a vote, I would say no. That’s Paul Pierce’s day. Paul Pierce spent up-teen years here, not two,” Gorman said.

Gorman said he respects that Thomas’ stint in Boston was MLB Jerseys Wholesale electric, but compared to the rest of their history? He doesn’t think it’s much. And Pierce earned his recognition with a little over a decade of production and a championship.

Winner gains a vital edge of its home field should they play each other again.

This wasn’t supposed to be Fromm’s job, but when Jacob Eason went down in Georgia’s opener, Fromm stepped in and looked like a savvy veteran. For the year, his 9.4 yards per attempt ranked sixth nationally, and he was especially good vs. the blitz, throwing 12 TDs with just one interception and posting an astonishing passer rating of 256.1, best in the Power 5.

Taylor was the backbone of Wisconsin’s offense this season, rushing for 1,847 yards, the most by a freshman since Adrian Peterson in 2004. Taylor had nine games with more than 100 yards, three with more than 200, and his 6.8 yards per rush ranked fifth among running backs with at least 150 rushes.

While Danny Amendola has been steady in the slot with Edelman out, and while Phillip Dorsett has flashed downfield, Lewis and Burkhead supplement that capacity from the backfield better than White can. With Gronk’s size and Cooks’ speed on those “forward handoff” plays in scoring position, Lewis and Burkhead have rendered Gillislee unnecessary near the goal line.

Morrow averaged 97.7 mph with his fastball and it’s that big velocity that the Cubs are banking on, maybe even counting on Morrow to replace free agent Wade Davis as the team’s closer. There’s some risk there as well, not so much in that Morrow has done the job, but because he was used very carefully last season (at least until the postseason, when Dave Roberts used him 14 of the Dodgers’ 15 playoff games).

Part II of the Eagles’ reputation-testing West Coast trip, this time against a Rams team with an offense harder to stop than Seattle’s and a defense that’s healthier. That defense is what Carson Wentz and the Eagles have to worry about, especially after being held without a touchdown for more Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys than Best Place To Buy Cheap Jerseys a half in Seattle on Sunday night. The Rams, meanwhile, are the only team that has defeated the Saints over the last two months.

Devils captain Andy Greene missed the final half of the second period but returned for the third.

Wisconsin: The Badgers still own the Huskers, having beaten them six out of seven times since Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011. They’re off to a 5-0 start for the first time since going 6-0 in 2011.

Nebraska: The Huskers managed only 68 yards in the second half after amassing 313 in the first. The 21-point loss was their most lopsided since Iowa beat them by the same score in 2013 and only increases the pressure on Riley.

“It’s great to see them contribute and, as we’ve said in preseason, we didn’t feel it was a fluke the way they played even though it was preseason,” Devils coach John Hynes said of his rookies. “You could see how they played every day in practice and in the game, and nice to see them come and play important roles on our team.”

Soderburg had cut the Devils lead to 2-1, scoring on a rebound in close.

Moore’s short-handed goal to end the scoring was set up by Bratt.

The Devils scratched D Ben Lovejoy, who played in all 82 games last Cheap Discount Jerseys season. … LW Matt Nieto picked up six minutes in penalties in Colorado’s opener. He was scratched on Saturday. … Palmieri sustained a lower body injury after being kneed by Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson Cheap Jerseys World along the boards. “It’s just unfortunate,” Johnson said. “I know Palms from playing at the World Cup. I hope he is OK. I just went to hit him and never changed my course. I haven’t seen the replay.” …
