Damarious Randall hasn’t yet played a game with the Cleveland Browns after he was traded from the Green Bay Packers in March, but he’s already drawing plenty of attention for his NBA opinions.
Instead of supporting the hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, Randall has been a vocal supporter of the Golden State Warriors:
McMahon, with Luck running the football side of things, will now try to capitalize on the NFL’s increasingly battered image, at least in part by appealing to the portion of the pro-football fan base that thinks players should stand during the national anthem. It’s a decidedly political statement that McMahon is trying to frame in nonpolitical window dressing.
I have no idea whether or not President Trump will support this, McMahon said in announcing the league’s reformation in January. As far as our league is concerned, it will have nothing to do with politics, absolutely nothing, and nothing to do with social issues, either. We’re there to play football. We want really good football, and I think that’s what fans want as well.
Olsen’s comments echo the news from beat reporters at practice, who have noticed Martin’s burst during organized team activities. During his struggles, Martin lacked pop and couldn’t break tackles. With fewer than 145 carries on his legs each of the past two years, a rebirth would not be unheard of for the 29-year-old.
He’s been one of the hardest workers since we got here in Phase 1, hands down, quarterback Derek Carr said of Martin, via the team’s official website. He’s been one of the guys out there that just every day sticks out doing something where you see why he’s a Pro Bowler. I guess you don’t see why he got let go, but you’re thankful that we have him.
Martin must continue to impress to lock down a roster spot and push for carries behind Marshawn Lynch. A Beast Mode-Martin backfield combo would make for an interesting dynamic in Jon Gruden’s offense. First, Martin must maintain that re-found burst and make the team.
Cory Schneider isn’t going anywhere.
The Devils goalie listed his Short Hills home on the market on Wednesday, but he and his family are moving to another house in the area, according to a source familiar with the move.
He struggled in 2017-18, going 17-6-6 with a 2.93 GAA and .907 save percentage, but following the season, he underwent surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left hip.The injury lingered throughout the season. He could miss part of training camp and the start of the 2018-19 season as a result of the surgery.
He did save some of his best play for his first postseason games in a Devils uniform. In four postseason games, Schneider posted a 1.78 GAA and .950 save percentage. He did go 1-2 in his three starts, and the Devils were eliminated in five games by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Based on Bradford’s injury history and the fact he’ll take snaps behind a shaky offensive line, expect to see Rosen toss passes to Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk within the second quarter of the season. He’ll become the first to take the field among rookie quarterbacks, but it’s not going to happen in the first week.
During the evaluation process, analysts had difficulty projecting Minkah Fitzpatrick’s position after he played the “star” role at Alabama. The standout defensive back doesn’t have much experience on the boundary. Keep safety and slot cornerback in mind.
Head coach Adam Gase shot down the idea that T.J. McDonald would move to linebacker to free a spot for Fitzpatrick at safety, per Palm Beach Post reporter Hal Habib. “T.J. is playing safety,” Gase said in his first comments since the draft. “If we have to make adjustments somewhere. … He’s not moving to linebacker. He’s going to be a safety and then we’re going to figure out a way to get our best 11 players on the field.”
Now it’s on him to do the thing the Bills traded up in the first round for him to do.
Allen said after his first rookie minicamp in the NFL that he knows there are adjustments he’s going to have to make, but he’s confident he can handle them.
“You can kind of tell that he’s taking it serious. He’s more than an arm, obviously. He’s a smart kid, he works hard.”
He’s going to have to, as the Bills have invested a lot in him being the kind of face-of-the-franchise player they lacked.
On a night Aaron Hicks became the first Yankees player to hit two inside-the-park homers in a season since Mickey Mantle had three in 1958, Gary Sanchez had a shot at a baseball rarity during his ninth-inning at-bat.
Earlier, Sanchez singled, doubled and homered. A triple would have made him the first Yankee since Melky Cabrera in 2009 and 16th ever to hit for the cycle.
However, general manager John Schneider felt the need to select Penny in the first round. Obviously, the Seahawks want more out of their backfield as the offensive line takes shape.
Penny put his receiving skills on full display at rookie minicamp, per News Tribune reporter Gregg Bell. “Penny — who led the nation in rushing with 2,200 yards and 23 touchdowns at San Diego State — looked better in the passing game than perhaps the Seahawks expected. At one point, he was split out catching slant passes, like a wide receiver.”
However, Gates already has a good rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers, intimately knows the offense and showed during the last two games of the 2017 season (10 catches, 127 yards, TD) that he can still make plays.
The Rams have added six more undrafted rookies to the roster with organized team activities on tap.
In turn, the veterans relaxed the rookies. The young players were welcomed into the locker room and given sage advice: Like, for example, Orpik telling the young defensemen which forwards in the NHL hit the hardest, in an effort to spare them injury. There was no old-school Capital making their lives hellish. They were allowed, by the veterans and the coaching staff, to make mistakes.
“The old guys have been very supportive on and off the ice. Leading by example every day. And the young guys are trying to take in as much as we can,” said Stephenson. “The older guys know when to keep it loose. But they also know when to be dialed in.”
He bounced around the NHL from the New York Rangers’ organization to the Columbus Blue Jackets to the Tampa Bay Lightning to the Florida Panthers, who decided they didn’t want him because he was a 5-foot-9 forward and scored only 30 goals. It’s the proverbial story of the young Canadian boy who works hard, plays hard and eventually earns a six-year, $30 million extension, Conn Smythe buzz and this car:
That’s the word from Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com who writes that the Browns drafted Ward to be a shutdown corner and are likely to start him Week One and let him learn on the job.
Covering Brown is a tall order for any rookie, but if the Browns didn’t think that Ward was capable of that kind of task, they wouldn’t have used the fourth overall pick in the draft on him. The Browns thought Ward was the best defensive player in this year’s draft, and they want him to show it right away.
The Vikings traded out of round three, and they ended up near the top of round four as a result of the transaction. With the second pick in the round (the same spot where Kirk Cousins was picked six years ago), the Vikings went for a guy who will chase quarterbacks.
Ohio State defensive end Jalyn Holmes is the newest Viking.
It’s definitely a pick based on potential; Holmes simply didn’t have high-level production as a Buckeye. But the Vikings have a solid history of taking pass rushers in round four. That’s where they found Everson Griffen in 2010 and Brian Robison (also pick No. 102) in 2007.
Panthers kick off third day with tight end Ian Thomas
The Panthers have one of the game’s best tight ends in Greg Olsen, and they just gave him a contract extension.
Trai Turner is not the stud most people think—he sometimes struggles against powerful pass rushers and his mobility is only slightly above average.
Still, overall, he’s a quality guard in an offense that values them.
The process commences with jury selection, which could take roughly a day. One of the biggest questions regarding the process of screening jurors could be whether Giants fans are permitted to serve on the panel.
Barring a settlement, the case will proceed to a verdict. And if the verdict results in a finding that Manning committed fraud, things could get very interesting.
As previously explained, the Personal Conduct Policy seems to encompass fraud, whether prosecuted as criminal fraud or not. There also could be a question as to whether the Giants properly disclosed the potential Personal Conduct Policy violation in a timely manner, which could trigger discipline for the team and any responsible individuals.
Even if Manning is exonerated, the evidence that comes out at trial could arguably compel an investigation by the NFL. If he’s found to have committed fraud, a failure by the NFL to investigate the matter could become awkward and glaring, inviting claims of special treatment provided to a quarterback who plays for a team that is believed to enjoy most-favored-nation status in the eyes of the league office.
When Washington ended the 2018 NFL draft by selecting SMU wide receiver Trey Quinn, it made him this year’s Mr. Irrelevant. But Quinn doesn’t sound too keen on that name.
Quinn led the NCAA with an average of 8.8 receptions per game last season, he holds the all-time national high school record for career receiving yards, and he once threw a no-hitter in the Little League World Series. He thinks that all makes him very relevant.
“It’s the most ironic name for me,” Quinn told KPLC. “I went through my career and I set every record that I stepped foot in at every place. I think I might be the most relevant, irrelevant ever. I have a chip on my shoulder. Everybody’s going to see it.”
Thus far, the Dallas Cowboys have been reaping the benefits of Prescott making chicken feed. The fourth-round pick signed a four-year contract in 2016 worth $2.7 million total — that’s less than what slot receiver Cole Beasley will make in base salary this year ($3.25 million). Prescott is slated to make $630,000 in base salary in 2018. His $725,848 cap hit is the 35th highest on the Cowboys, less than the likes of Charles Tapper ($784,470), Chaz Green ($877,234) or Joe Looney ($975,000).
The program will continue in 2018 with the four AFC North teams getting assigned players this time. The Ravens are the first team to announce their foreign addition.
It is fullback Chris Ezeala, who also played linebacker and special teams, including time as a punter, in the German League for the last three years. Ezeala has spent the last three months training with former Ravens running back Earnest Byner at the IMG Academy in Florida.
Converted defensive tackle Patrick Ricard is the only other fullback on the Ravens right now. That won’t make the jump in competition any easier for Ezeala to handle, but it does offer a path to the 53-man roster if he can show the potential to offer the team more than Ricard did last season.
Even though we weren’t allowed to talk football, Eli was here every day, Shurmur said.
The Cowboys finished their draft without adding any defensive backs, which left room for them to bring in four of them as undrafted free agents.
Three of the four are listed as cornerbacks, including Charvarius Ward. Ward had two interceptions and 13 pass breakups for Middle Tennessee State over the last two seasons and joins Kam Kelly from San Diego State and Portland State’s Donovan Olumba as new pieces at the position. The Cowboys also signed former Oregon safety Tyree Robinson.
Dallas also signed two wide receivers after drafting two of them over the weekend. Missouri State’s Malik Earl and Iowa State’s Marchie Murdock join third-round pick Michael Gallup and sixth-round pick Cedrick Wilson as rookie targets.
So where each of those teams could look at Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen and Josh Allen at this time last year, and say to themselves, We’ll be okay, they couldn’t do the same this time around.
Not right now, there isn’t one (that would go first round as it stands), said one AFC college scouting director.
The Texans made such a G.M. change this year when Brian Gaine was hired after Rick Smith went on leave and now they’ve made a slew of other changes. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team has dismissed assistant general manager Jimmy Raye III, director of college scouting Jon Carr, assistant director of college scouting Mike Martin, college scouting coordinator Matt Jansen and college scout Seth Turner.
Raye was hired when Gaine left the Texans for a job with the Bills last year and he interviewed for the top job in Houston before Gaine returned. He also interviewed with the Panthers before they bumped Marty Hurney from interim G.M. to a permanent position.
Gaine presided over eight selections this year, although the Texans didn’t pick until the third round thanks to trades that sent this year’s first- and second-round picks to the Browns. One of those trades landed Deshaun Watson, which likely made it easier for Gaine to swallow sitting out until the 68th pick.
But what’s clear, to me, is that this wasn’t a fly-by-night decision by the Cleveland brass.
No matter what happens over the next years with Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the greatest and most prolonged dynasty in NFL history, no matter when they stop adding to their unparalleled achievements, go their separate ways, and transition from the present to the past tense, there is this comfort to be found:
The dynasty will survive forever, even after it ends.
This uncommonly chaotic Patriots offseason, in which Brady and teammates with lesser clout seemed to passive-aggressively question Belichick’s tactics, lent itself to negative thinking and a whole lot of parsing about what exactly is going on here. That mindset pretty much began the moment Malcolm Butler headed down the tunnel and toward the locker room, his jersey still as crisp and white as when he put it on, in the weird aftermath of the Super Bowl loss to the Eagles.
Originally selected by the Broncos in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft out of Miami, Franklin went on to start 70 games in Denver. He helped the team win the AFC West four years in a row and was part of the team’s Super Bowl squad in 2013.
While there’s work to be done with Jackson’s consistency as a passer, the collegiate results were pretty impressive—and anyone shocked that four quarterbacks were picked before Jackson has good reason to be.
Through three seasons as Louisville’s starter, the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner completed 619 passes in 1,086 attempts for a 57.0 completion rate, 9,043 yards, 69 touchdowns and 27 interceptions. As a runner, he was incredibly dynamic, gaining 4,132 yards and scoring 50 touchdowns on 655 carries. The completion percentage was one of the dings on Jackson’s NFL potential, but when you compare that to Josh Allen’s 56.2 completion rate in his two seasons as the starter at Wyoming and consider that Allen went seventh overall to the Bills…well, Jackson’s slide to the final pick of the first round seems odd.
So far, the Detroit Lions have drafted a center, a running back and a safety. They also gave up their fourth-round pick to move up in the second round to secure that running back, Auburn’s Kerryon Johnson.
The Packers needed secondary help — they always need secondary help — coming into this draft. Green Bay allowed a 102 QB rating last season, and the image of their cornerbacks getting torched in the 2016 NFC championship game against Atlanta isn’t that far removed from memory. There were staffing changes around coach Mike McCarthy this offseason, but the draft plan didn’t change.
Gutekunst doubled down and grabbed Iowa’s Josh Jackson, an All-American cornerback who had first-round projections. Jackson Alexander is a solid pick. Jackson is a value pick. Their styles complement each other.
The latter had eight interceptions for the Hawkeyes. These cornerbacks played well in big games. It’s a clear message to the rest of the defensive backs on the roster — which includes 2017 second-round picks Kevin King and Josh King — that the problem needs fixing. New defensive coordinator Mike Pettine is bringing in a new scheme, and Green Bay didn’t make a bold move in free agency at the position, other than bringing back veteran cornerback Tramon Williams. Morgan Burnett is gone, too. Winners and losers of Round 1 That’s good news in April, but the Packers have been down this road enough times.
Torres’ blast, the second of his career, came off reliever Dan Otero and it marked the Yankees’ second walk-off win in three days. On Friday, Miguel Andujar, another rookie, cracked a walk-off single.
On April 26, Gary Sanchez launched a walk-off home run vs. the Minnesota Twins at home.
The comeback for the Yankees started ferociously Sunday.
Neil Walker’s double brought home Aaron Hicks, who had doubled to start the ninth inning, tying the score, 4-4, following the Yankees’ three-run eighth inning.
With Walker on second, Miguel Andujar, needing to hit the ball to the right side to advance the runner, grounded out to third for the inning’s first out. When Giancarlo Stanton pinch-hit for designated hitter Tyler Austin, Cleveland intentionally walked him to set up a force.
The two quarterbacks are also slow-playing their relationship. Jackson told reporters Saturday that he has yet to speak to Flacco and doesn’t yet know what he’ll learn from the 33-year-old veteran.
Instead, his main focus right now is getting comfortable taking snaps under center; Jackson played almost exclusively out of the shotgun in Louisville.
Wherever Baltimore ends up placing Jackson in the formation is fine with the rookie, just as long as the team treats him like a quarterback.
Justify had 3,400 more mentions than Bolt d’Oro (9-1), followed by Magnum Moon (11,000) and Mendelssohn (10,100), the site found. Those secondary choices differ from the early line, which listed Mendelssohn (5-1) second and Magnum Moon (6-1) third with My Boy Jack and Audible each at 8-1.
After the Yankees’ afternoon win, manager Aaron Boone was asked if he’d keep an eye on Boston’s score later in the day, considering the outcome could determine a new leader in what’s expected to be a hotly-contested two-team division race.
The Broncos still could jump into the quarterback pool. If they do, it should be the guy with the biggest upside and is most Elway-like in makeup: Baker Mayfield. The Oklahoma product’s arm, moxie and athleticism would be more coveted if he had the prototypical size. But consider Mayfield was measured at 6-2, 215 pounds; only one inch shorter than Elway in his playing days.
Mayfield makes more sense than anyone else that will be available at QB, including Wyoming’s Josh Allen and UCLA’s Josh Rosen, because he checks more of the Broncos’ desired boxes.
There are two other non-quarterbacks the Broncos should consider along the same lines of Barkley and Ward: N.C. State defensive end Bradley Chubb and Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson. Chubb, however, is looking less likely to slip to them at No. 5. Nelson is set to be available more because of the position he plays than the fact that he’s an elite, top five-worthy talent. Chubb and Von Miller would be quite an edge-rushing duo. Nelson is the smooth inside blocker they should want to put between Bolles and Paradis.
