Browns G.M. asked Baker Mayfield about arrest right off the bat

When Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield walked into the Combine, he D.J. Alexander Authentic Jersey said he was going to give teams brutal honesty about his past.
Youth Nike Los Angeles Chargers #12 Travis Benjamin White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
Browns General Manager John Dorsey gave him a chance to do so as soon as they met.

If nothing else, he gives the team some insurance against the possibility that Trumaine Johnson and Nickell Robey-Coleman both leave as free agents when the new league year gets underway next week.

This throw against Texas, on the other hand, is what a lot of Darnold’s rollout throws look like. He’s throwing with all arm, he doesn’t square his shoulder to the target, and as a result, he probably doesn’t have an idea of how to fit the ball into a tight window or even where it’s going. The ability to put together a reliable boot-action game is mandatory for any young quarterback in the NFL, and Darnold’s coaches will need to work with him on this.

There have been studies done on roster building and the importance of the draft. Here’s one from 2016.

Earl Campbell Elite Jersey The Lions are not rebuilding. They have a quarterback, a left tackle and some Pro-Bowl-caliber defenders. They don’t have as much talent, top to bottom, as some of the other top teams in the NFC, namely Philadelphia and Minnesota, but there’s enough to make the playoffs and compete.

It would generate a lot of headlines, but he’d enter the offseason program聽as a third-string quarterback, with a lot of work to do to pass Jake Rudock on the depth chart.

Questions to be avoided included, per the source: (1) do you like women or men ; (2) are you gay or straight ; (3) do you have any children/dependents and, if yes, who has primary caretaking responsibilities ; and (4) did you marry your child’s mother and, if not, why not

It’s good that the memo is sent, but it’s clear that the memo isn’t working as well as it could be. More needs to be done, including but not limited to the imposition of meaningful discipline for those who violate the rules.

Texans seek upgrade at cornerback with Gaines or Butler

The Texans waited too long to get serious about keeping cornerback A.J. Bouye last year and watched him leave for the rival Jaguars. Now, cornerback Johnathan Joseph is a free agent.
Limited Womens Geoff Swaim Jersey
Not surprisingly, Houston seeks an upgrade at the position.

The Texans are interested in Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler and Bills cornerback E.J. Gaines, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. New Texans General Manager Brian Gaine came from Buffalo.

I don鈥檛 believe it鈥檚 luck, Blount said. I just believe it鈥檚 hard work. You鈥檝e got to grind for everything you get in this league 鈥?scratch, claw for everything you get. There鈥檚 no luck involved. All 32 teams are going out there with one common goal.

Everybody works their tails to get to that last game 鈥?you fight, you scratch, you claw, you bleed with your brothers. It鈥檚 the mentality that you refuse to be denied and that鈥檚 just something that I want to bring to Detroit. You just got to have to refuse to be denied what you think you鈥檝e earned throughout the whole process.

Smith has not ed Rick Barry Womens Jersey in the NFL since November 2015. He remains suspended under the league’s substance-abuse policy, and the Raiders released him last week.

There have been other attempts to build these kinds of teams without similar results.

The 2011 Eagles signed DE Jason Babin,聽CB Nnamdi Asomugha, DT Cullen Jenkins, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, RB Ronnie Brown, QB Vince Young and TE Donald Lee.

Game Mens Mitch Morse Jersey Young nicknamed those Eagles the Dream Team, but they went 12-20 over the next two seasons.

Superteams fail because football isn’t basketball. In the NFL, you simply cannot add stars to a team, like spices to a soup, and dominate.

AJ McCarron can make up to $16.5 million over two years

When the music stopped on Tuesday, AJ McCarron was doing the John-Travolta-in-Pulp-Fiction-look-around-the-room-and-wonder-what-the-hell-is-going-on thing. On Wednesday, McCarron opted to pounce on the only starting job that was still open.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, McCarron’s deal with the Bills has a base value of $10 million. He can make another $6.5 million based on ing time.

This way, McCarron will get the full offseason to prepare as the starter, with the rookie the Bills inevitably draft most likely kept on ice, possibly for all of 2018.

As you may or may not recall, Gronk’s house was burglarized while he was in Minnesota for Super Bowl LII. After the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Eagles, Gronk flew home and noticed that dozens of things had been stolen, including multiple guns. At the point, the Patriots tight end called 911.

Authorities announced on Friday that one of the suspects in the case, Anthony Almeida, has been taken into custody. Almeida has been hit with a total of four charges, including breaking and entering, two counts of receiving stolen property, and one count of malicious destruction of property.

If Ezekiel Elliott can return to his rookie form, quarterback Dak Prescott will have a wealth of playmakers to spread the ball around to next season.?

The Cowboys are chasing the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East, so having a powerful offense is a good way to try combating the reigning Super Bowl champions.

Last year Ryan Tannehill missed the entire season with a knee injury, and the Dolphins brought in Jay Cutler to start ahead of Matt Moore. This year both Cutler and Moore are free agents. Tannehill should be back, and the Dolphins may draft a quarterback as well.

Mauro played in 47 career games with 26 starts for the Cardinals from 2014-17. He followed his former defensive coordinator James Bettcher to the Giants.

As soon as the? Giants traded Jason Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers on Thursday, Mauro became penciled in as a starter … at least until the next move by general manager Dave Gettleman . But that won’t happen until at least the fifth game.

Raiders re-sign tight end Lee Smith

The Raiders might be undergoing some changes on offense, but they’re always going to need blockers.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Raiders are bringing back tight end Lee Smith.

The bigger question is whether Bennett knew that an incident had occurred. Even if Bennett wasn鈥檛 arrested at the time he allegedly shoved an elderly woman at the conclusion of Super Bowl LI, the Personal Conduct Policy requires the player to report an incident even without an arrest.

Clubs and players are obligated to promptly report any matter that comes to their attention (through, for example, victim or witness reports, law enforcement, or media reports) that may constitute a violation of Authentic Kurt Warner Jersey this Policy, the official policy states.

Johnson joins Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald in trying to convince Cousins to sign with the Cardinals. Cousins referred to Fitzgerald as a great recruiter.

Game Mens Spencer Lanning Jersey The Cardinals need a quarterback, but they have nowhere near as much cap space as other quarterback-needy teams, including the Browns, Jets, Vikings and Broncos. It seems unlikely that Cousins will end up in Arizona, as much as the team’s top ers want him to be there.

But so did the media deals that have only further enriched the league.

And that鈥檚 why owners say, in spite of these worries, they insisted on a recent contract extension for Goodell.

Authentic Womens Jonathan Ogden Jersey This was one more reason, the economic and business aspect, why I felt with Roger, we needed him to stay on,said Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, who leads the league鈥檚 business ventures committee.

While Goodell is signed through the 2023 season, the faces around him are changing.

Joe Thomas excited about trades, but retirement decision still up in the air

Browns tackle Joe Thomas had his brother’s wedding on Saturday, but took some time out from preparing for the event to tape an episode of his podcast with former Browns wideout Andrew Hawkins.

The reason for the unscheduled broadcast was the run of trades that the Browns made to close out the week. The acquisitions of quarterback Tyrod Taylor, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and cornerback Damarious Randall were met with approval by Thomas.

It’s unclear whether the Lions would have offered Sherman more than the 49ers offered. Some think Sherman should have taken the visit to Detroit, if only to leverage the 49ers into doing a better deal.

Of course, it’s possible that the 49ers told Sherman that, if he moved on to a Detroit visit, the 49ers would have moved on to another option. It’s a tactic commonly used by teams in the early stages of free agency, and it’s often not a bluff.

Still, the circumstances suggest that Sherman, who is recovering from surgery on both Achilles tendons, opted for a quick bird in the hand from a team that directly competes with the team that cut him. It’s possible, then, that emotion played a role in the decision-making process. Given that Sherman has opted to proceed without an agent, there was no one in a position of real influence and experience who would have been in position to credibly and persuasively get him to let things play out a little more slowly.

The Giants gave center Brett Jones a second-round tender, a move reported last week by The Post.

Pitching prospect Brady Lail, starting because the Yankees wanted to make sure Gray got in his work before scheduled afternoon showers, allowed two first-inning runs over 1 1/3 innings. Lail, 24, was switched this season to relief after being a starter in his first six pro seasons.

The game was played amid threats of heavy rains coming in the afternoon. The skies opened while the Tigers were batting in the fifth inning, but the downpour lasted for just a minute or two before stopping until the ninth inning. Oh Joey Votto Youth jersey man, I was like, ‘I hope this stops,’ second baseman Tyler Wade said. I was going to get off the field and my glove was going to be ruined. I’m glad it stopped. That’s Florida weather for you!

Jones will play for $2.91 million this season and is expected to be the starting center.

Justin Pugh, the Giants’ 2013 first-round draft pick, will visit Thursday with the Cardinals, according to NFL Network. It appears the Giants have moved on from Pugh, who played in only eight games this past season because of a back issue that landed him on inured reserve.

Siemian, 26, figures to slide in as the backup behind Cousins after a tumultuous third season with the Broncos ended with him re-injuring his left shoulder, which he had surgery on in January. The Northwestern product was hailed as the starter out of preseason in 2017, under head coach Vance Joseph, but inconsistent play marked by costly turnovers cost him the job. After a promising 2016 鈥?when he threw 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions 鈥?he finished 2017 with 12 TDs and 14 picks.

N.C. State finished 16-for-27, missing the first of a bunch of one-and-ones. Seton Hall, 94-83 winners, went 31-for-39.

But Day 1 free-throw shooting was brutal. In Thursday’s 68-64 Gonzaga win over UNC Greensboro, the losers were 5-for-10, the winners 13-for-25. Yeesh. Still, free throws don’t even make TV’s in-game summary stats graphics, which is negligent.

That brings us to White Sox manager Rick Renteria, who must be some kind of anarchist nut, a radical who may run afoul of the MLBPA.

Shohei Ohtani shows on rainy Arizona day why he’s a ray of hope for Angels

Ohtani’s words will matter, but so will his bat. In Japan, teams throw batting practice from the mound. In the majors, the pitcher throws BP in front of the mound. So that took him a minute to adjust to Wednesday, though it didn’t stop him from spraying line drives around the field. Ohtani also sent a couple pitches over the fence, to right field and right-center.

Contrary to popular belief, Moneyball wasn’t about on-base percentage. It was about taking advantage of an underpriced commodity, which Billy Beane happened to identify as the ability to get on base. The analogous asset in today’s fantasy baseball game is high-strikeout middle relievers. This extends beyond saves or holds (if your league rewards those outings). Middle relievers can be staff-savers in almost every format.

In weekly rotisserie formats, the difference between a top reliever throwing three stanzas per week and a back-end starter who fails to last five frames is shrinking — if it hasn’t already flipped towards the reliever.

We’ll tell him, it’s not something we try to hide or try to fake it, we try to be really, really honest with him. We want him to trust us so we tell him when things are going to hurt or the medicine is going to taste bad.

They decided to release the 29-year-old receiver on Wednesday right before the new league year began.

Baltimore could also scour the free agent market to bolster its receiving corps. So far they’ve added John Brown and Ryan Grant this offseason. The Ravens could also address this need in the upcoming draft.

What’s next for Maclin? Maclin could still be a serviceable player. But he isn’t going to receive a lucrative contract this offseason. At best, a Super Bowl contender could offer him a one-year or two-year deal. If Maclin can go to a team where he doesn’t have to shoulder the receiving load, he could be a solid complementary piece.

Red Sox’ David Price attempts to clear air before spring training

David Price wants to move on from his problems last season, both on the field and with the media.

I could’ve handled it better last year, absolutely. But I didn’t, and I’ve moved on, Price told reporters at the Red Sox spring training facility Tuesday, via ESPN. I feel like I’ve always been one to lead with my actions, and I didn’t do that very well last year.

The 26-year-old Foltynewicz went 10-13 with a 4.79 ERA in 29 games in 2017. But he showed incredible Paul Martin Authentic Jersey potential in midseason, going 9-1 with a 3.56 ERA in 14 starts from May 12 through July 25 before slumping in his last nine starts.

The former LSU star never lived up to his draft status (sixth overall in 2012) and the Cowboys let him walk as a free agent.

Looking for a starting corner to replace Darrelle Revis, the Jets took a chance, signing Claiborne to a one-year, $5 million contract.

According to the probable cause statement contained in the court report the Union-Tribune cited, Torres is accused of knocking a door off its hinges, punching a hole in another door and pointing a semiautomatic handgun at the alleged victim.

Do the Browns suddenly matter in fantasy?

Are the Cleveland Browns, dare I say Johnthan Banks Jersey it, good? Well, that’s a conversation for another day, but there’s no doubt that Cleveland’s recent acquisitions have made the franchise more fantasy relevant than it has been in a long time.
2014 Olympic Hockey Team USA Ryan McDonagh Authentic Youth Nike White Jersey: #27 Home
The latest of those transactions was Friday’s barrage of trades, which brought both Tyrod Taylor and Jarvis Landry to town.

By making this trade, the Dolphins lock in a better fourth-round pick, get that selection a year earlier than they would through the comp market and can make moves in free agency without having to worry about impacting the compensatory formula. They still have to clear out more space — the Dolphins are $3 million over the cap even after trading away Landry — but this is a nifty sign-and-trade maneuver for a guy who wasn’t going to be on the Dolphins roster in 2018.

Limited Mens Trea Turner Jersey The third move of the bunch is my favorite for the Browns, although it comes with the most risk. It was only a year ago that Cleveland used the 52nd pick of the draft on Kizer, but Jackson’s bungling mismanagement of the former Notre Dame starter left Kizer entirely bereft of confidence. Few rookie quarterbacks are lame-duck starters by November of their debut seasons, but that was quite clearly the case with Kizer. As a backup behind Taylor and perhaps the No. 3 passer if the Browns draft someone this year, Kizer’s value wasn’t about to go up anytime soon.

While the Dolphins could make the move as early as Monday, it likely will happen Wednesday, sources said.

Suh might have hinted at the upcoming move when he tweeted a video Monday morning in which he said There will be some exciting things going on.

The Dolphins are moving on from Suh and Timmons as they continue their attempt at a culture change — a plan that already led to the trades of wide receiver Jarvis Landry last week and running back Jay Ajayi in October.

Suh’s release also will take a large contract off Miami’s books. Suh carried a salary-cap number of $26.1 million for the 2018 season, including a base salary of $16.985 million.

Datone Jones Authentic Jersey If Suh is designated as a post-June 1 cut, the team would save $17 million against the 2018 salary cap. Releasing Suh now would save the Dolphins just $3.9 million against the cap.

Five teams that should call Hornets about trade for Kemba Walker

Chance Warmack Limited Jersey
Mitchell has been at his best as the primary ball handler for the Jazz, but Walker could space the floor for him better than Ricky Rubio can and take some of the playmaking burden off him. It would help Mitchell be a more efficient player, both now and in the future.
Limited Mark Barron Youth Home Navy Blue Nike Jersey - #26 NFL Los Angeles Rams Vapor Untouchable
While it probably wouldn’t be enough for the Jazz to make a playoff push this season, a core of Walker, Mitchell and Rudy Gobert 锟斤拷 plus Nicolas Batum or Marvin Williams? 锟斤拷 would set them up nicely to bounce back next season. The question: can the Jazz put together a package the Hornets are looking for based on the players they currently have on the roster?

Limited Youth Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey A report by Peter Schrager suggests that Cousins will seek a shorter deal with more guaranteed money. The idea is to get three to four years of mostly guaranteed money, so he’s able to hit the market again when the price for quarterbacks ultimately goes up again. That was backed up by Adam Schefter, who reported the Vikings, Jets, Cardinals, and Broncos Authentic Boston Bruins Jersey were the finalists to land Cousins and that most had planned for short-term deals with a large amount of guaranteed money included.

However, the NY Daily News’ Manish Mehta said Cousins is still opening to signing with any team. Cousins’ agent also told Mike Klis of 9News that Kirk is keeping all his options open. No team has been ruled out.

I think the way we all view the role of a defenseman is evolving. A shutdown defender who blocks a lot of shots and plays a physical game still has value, but the way that player impacts the game pales in comparison to defenders with skill, who move the puck and who are able to help their team keep the puck out of their own zone.

So I’m going to go in the complete opposite direction. I’d like to see a defenseman scoring title. Call it the Bobby Orr Trophy. There would absolutely be years where a player wins both, just as there are plenty of Art Ross-Hart Trophy combos. But the existence of an official scoring title for defensemen could motivate the PHWA voter base to take a closer look at what makes a great all-around defenseman, which I think is already happening more regularly, just as Selke Trophy voting is evolving, as Greg mentioned. You have to consider all of the ways a defenseman impacts the game.
