Pat Shurmur Jersey last week was in Los Angeles, part of the Giants contingent scouting quarterbacks Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold Jersey

Shurmur called Odell Beckham Jr., who spends his offseason out in LA, and the two met for a good while.
Men's Nike Baltimore Ravens #74 James Hurst Limited Black 2016 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
Kids David Ortiz Jersey Based on the conversation, Shurmur said it was his understanding that Beckham will be at the team facility April 9 for the start of the offseason workout program.

What?

We all understand this time of year we can’t talk football. It was a good meeting. I felt like I got to know him a little better. I got a little better sense of who he is.

Head coaches embarking on their first season with a new team usually want to keep the most talented players, and it is no different with Shurmur.

I think Ray Bourque Jersey we always want weapons and obviously he’s been an outstanding player, especially the first three years, Shurmur said.

Based on what he has seen and heard, Shurmur says Beckham is on track coming back from his injury and that all reports are he’ll be ready to go at some point here in the training. Exactly when that is remains to be seen, but there will be no rush to get Beckham on the field before he is ready to roll.

There’s steps he’s got to take but all indications are he’ll be back, healthy by the time we start playing in September, Shurmur said.

When he was cut [by the Dolphins], we looked into him and we talked with the agent, Maccagnan said at the NFL meetings on Monday. We went through our process with him. He made some visits with teams. We extended an offer. We had a deadline on that offer and when that deadline passed, myself and Christopher 鈥?now Todd [Bowles] was informed about this the whole time 鈥?but we made the determination of whether we wanted to stay in the race for him or pull out. We decided at that point in time to pull out.

The Jets viewed Suh as a potential bargain on a one-year deal. They were hoping to get the 31-year-old for a year and then determine whether to make it a long-term arrangement after that.

Suh is a very good player still, not from a statistic standpoint but when you watch him on tape he still has the ability to be a dominant player, Maccagnan said. But we felt pretty good about potentially adding him to the roster. We did quite a bit of work with our scouts and our coaches. We felt very comfortable with him.

Maccagnan reiterated what Johnson said about players like Robby Anderson and Dylan Donahue, who have recently been arrested.

There is an ongoing search by the Giants to find a capable free safety to start alongside Landon Collins.

That search resulted in the signing of Michael Thomas, a veteran with 24 starts in his NFL career.

Thomas, 29, joined the Dolphins in 2013, became a full-time starter in 2015 and arrives with a reputation as a strong contributor on special teams. He played in 13 games for the Dolphins last season, starting two games, before landing on injured reserve in late December.

Thomas figures to challenge Darian Thompson for the starting free safety spot. Thompson showed great promise as a rookie, winning a starting job, but lasted only two games before hurting his foot, requiring season-ending surgery. He did not have a strong season in 2017, raising doubts about his ability to be a full-time starter.

As an organization, the Phillies are trying to temper a narrative that’s hard to corral. From the moment owner John Middleton pledged allegiance to the analytics revolution in 2015, they’ve had to balance their embrace of numbers with the perception that they have strayed from traditional scouting and become oblivious to the human element. The Phillies didn’t even have an analytics department until 2013, so upper management is less concerned with achieving world domination through statistics than with playing catchup with the competition.

Suh has visited the Titans, Rams and Saints since the Dolphins released him last week.

It is surprising the Jets would target the 31-year-old Suh based off of their approach to free agency so far. They have signed players mainly between the ages of 25-28 outside of quarterback Josh McCown. Other than cornerback Trumaine Johnson, the contracts have been more team friendly than what one would expect Suh to command.

Bowles could be the driving force behind the pursuit of Suh. He probably envisions him immediately upgrading his defensive line, which has lost Sheldon Richardson and Muhammad Wilkerson in the past year.

While Suh’s sack numbers have decreased recently, he still is an incredibly disruptive player. He had 30 quarterback hurries last year and 4.5 sacks.

Pro Football Focus graded him as the fifth best interior lineman last year. He ranked second with a 92.4 grade against the run, trailing only Giants run-stuffer Damon Harrison.

Suh is a versatile player who can move all over the defensive line. Bowles could use him in the traditional 3-4 defensive end role or slide him inside in a four-man front. He would be like a chess piece for the defensive-minded Bowles to use.

Bowles has always spoken highly of Suh.

Johnny Manziel Jersey has two TDs (and ‘fun’) in Spring League finale, ponders next move

Johnny Manziel had a pair of rushing TDs Thursday in Austin, Texas, in the conclusion of the two-week Spring League.

More important, he had fun.

According to the American-Statesman, Manziel looked far more at ease Thursday than he did in his previous Spring League outing, when he was sacked four times.

Elite Youth Brandon Shell Jersey Manziel acknowledged to reporters that his throwing is still rusty. But he showed I can still throw the ball around, emphasizing that an NFL team’s decision to sign him is out of his control. Manziel is just happy to be back on the field.

I got to do exactly what I want to do and what I’ve been missing for the last two years, he said.

The results of the laboratory testing, which tested 34 helmet models, revealed which helmets best reduced head impact severity under laboratory conditions simulating concussion-causing impacts sustained by NFL players during games. According to the joint release, 98 percent of players wear helmets that were involved in the test.

Revenge should have no bounds. — Claudius, Hamlet.

The Baltimore Ravens might Nate Allen Jersey be the early frontrunners for Dez Bryant ‘s services, but if the former Pro Bowl receiver had his way, he’d stay in the NFC East . Landing with any of the three Dallas Cowboys rivals would allow Bryant a chance to face his former team twice a year.

Oh, sweet revenge, how oft does your toxic fragrance seduce the senses?

Do not be absolute about anything. And maybe this is more along the lines of the closer you get to the draft, the more flaws everyone finds. But I can’t find anyone in the NFL who thinks there’s an Andrew Luck in this quarterback crop.

Sebastian Janikowski Jersey agrees to contract with Seahawks

SeaBass is coming to Seattle.
Men's Adidas Edmonton Oilers #27 Boyd Gordon Premier Orange Home NHL Jersey
The Seahawks announced Friday that longtime Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski signed a one-year contract with the team.

The deal comes after Janikowski flew to Seattle on Tuesday to meet with the organization.

The Seahawks were in the market for a new kicker after Walsh’s lone season with the team did not go as planned. It started off well, with Walsh making 12 of his first 13 field goals, but ended disastrously when he missed seven of his final 16 kicks. Of those seven misses, six came during four losses that were decided by a touchdown or less.
Griffin Reinhart Kids Jersey
Walsh’s 72.4 percent field goal rate (21 of 29) ranked 29th among qualified kickers. He’s an unrestricted free agent after playing out a one-year, $1.1 million deal with Seattle.

Coach Pete Carroll said at the scouting combine that the Seahawks would likely bring in another kicker to compete with Myers, whom they had signed to a futures contract after the season. The 26-year-old Myers spent parts of three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who released him last October.

Deion Sanders Youth Jersey Janikowski has a connection to the Seahawks’ staff in special-teams coordinator Brian Schneider. He held the same job with the Raiders in 2007 and 2008.

I’m straight back to working out and doing what I did when I came here, Manziel Shamar Stephen Jersey said of his future after the Spring League. Everything else will sort itself out. I’m trying to do what I can do to come back to playing football whatever capacity that is.

We know when deadlines are. We have another month or so to work out and not worry about anything.

The Spring League is a developmental league with a two-game season that provides opportunities for players, who pay a fee to be there, hoping to showcase their play for a chance to land on an NFL roster.

Being back on the football field has been great, Manziel said: It’s been beyond my wildest dreams. There was a time there I didn’t know if I would actually do it. … I’m extremely happy just to be healthy, just to get to throw the ball around. I’ve missed this.

Manziel said he felt better on Thursday night than he did in the first game on Saturday. Manziel was 10-of-16 for 188 yards and an interception, including 8-of-10 for 145 yards in the first half. Manziel added 27 rushing yards on six attempts and two touchdowns.

Panthers’ Torrey Smith says Eric Reid Jersey ‘being locked down’ because of protests

Vita Vea, DT, Washington: No team gave up more rushing yards last year than the ‘Skins. Vea’s 6-4, 347-pound frame alone will obstruct running lanes, but he’s also uniquely mobile for a man his size and has shown the ability to bag quarterbacks, too.
Authentic Youth Sean Taylor Jersey
The Giants’ offseason program officially begins on Monday. It unofficially began on Thursday.

That’s when Eli Manning and a cadre of offensive teammates gathered at Duke University for what has become an annual get-together of running, passing catching and bonding. Manning brings his receivers to Duke because that is where his college coach, David Cutcliffe, is the current coach.

Perhaps most notable for being thrust off the street and into the starting lineup for the Ravens after a series of injuries at cornerback before being lit aflame in the 2014 playoffs, Melvin had been bouncing around the league before finding his way to the Colts in 2016. The 28-year-old then surprisingly emerged as one of the best players on the roster in 2017, as he helped Indy rank 18th in DVOA against No. 1 wideouts despite the Colts ranking 27th against No. 2 wideouts and Dede Westbrook Jersey 30th against other wide receivers before going down with a hand injury in December.

Exploring the fatal flaws of the top five quarterbacks

There’s no clear consensus as to the manner in which the top incoming quarterbacks will be drafted. For now, however, there’s a loose consensus as to the members of the list of the top five.

Tuesday’s PFT Live included an effort by co-host Chris Simms to identify the fatal flaws for each of the top prospects.

September 2016: Technically served a four-game suspension in 2016 for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, even though he was not on a roster. Any interested team knows that he is one positive test away from a yearlong suspension.

December 2016: Reaches agreement to have charges dropped of domestic abuse against his former girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, if he met certain conditions. The NFL did not add discipline under its personal conduct policy.

January 2017: Tells ESPN that he is sober after years of heavy alcohol and drug use. At about this time, according to a later interview with ABC News, Manziel is diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He begins treatment.

According to Jonathan Jones of SI.com, the Chargers met with Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson after his pro day workout today.

Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was on hand to watch Jackson throw (but not run), and it’s interesting to consider how they could impact the pace of quarterbacks being drafted next month. The Chargers pick 17th overall.

The only other quarterback on the roster behind Philip Rivers is Cardale Jones, though they did bring Geno Smith in for a workout yesterday.

“I mean, it happens in the trenches every single play,” Church said. “The running back comes through the hole, he lowers his head, lowers his body, and so does the defender trying to get leverage on him. It’s basically throwing a flag every play, you can if you want to. It’s kind of like holds. It’s tough. That’s tough on defenders.”

Outside the trenches, the problem will come from players taking their target point all the way down to the ground.

Ex-NFL star Ricky Williams Jersey rolls out new marijuana brand

Former NFL All-Pro running back Ricky Williams, who once sat out a season so he could smoke marijuana, is putting his experience to good use.
Men's Old Time Hockey Ottawa Senators #9 Bobby Ryan Premier Red Sawyer Hooded Sweatshirt
Williams has introduced a new personal marijuana brand, Real Wellness by Ricky Williams, that is now available in California dispensaries, and will soon be sold online.

It’s a dream come true for the former NFL star, he told the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

I am known as a professional football player, Williams said. In the last 14 years, I have been educating myself and training as a health care practitioner.

Given Williams’ history, this product line seemed almost inevitable. As he told Womens Zach Strief Jersey Sports Illustrated in 2016, The way the industry is growing, it feels newer, and it feels fresh. It’s like I have the chance to make a difference and be a superstar. 鈥?Be a superstar again.

The 24-year-old was a third-round pick out of USC in the 2016 NFL Draft and completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,506 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions in two seasons.
Kyle Clifford Authentic Jersey
We are excited about the opportunity to add Cody as depth to our quarterback position, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said in a statement. Despite being just 24 years old, Cody has already seen NFL game action and was very effective as a rookie in 2016, showing accuracy and efficiency in posting a quarterback rating of 90-plus.
Washington Capitals Kids Jersey
From our research and through getting to know Cody during the draft process, we know he is a smart, tough and competitive young man and we expect him to be a great addition to our quarterback and offensive meeting rooms.

He took a no-decision in his only appearance so far this season, holding the Orioles to two runs (one earned) on five hits and four walks over five innings on April 4.

I didn’t necessarily set the tone very well so that kind of contributed to the lackadaisical play, Keuchel said. But if we can scrape a win with how we played right there that’s a good sign. That means we’re a good team.

Tuesday, though, might provide their toughest test yet.

Odell Beckham Jr. Jersey reportedly absent from Eli Manning offseason workouts

According to a report by Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did not attend quarterback Eli Manning’s minicamp held at Duke University.
#31 Adidas Peter Budaj Women's Charcoal NHL - One Color Backer Tampa Bay Lightning T-Shirt
He is still recovering from ankle surgery, though his absence can’t help but spark thoughts of his current contract situation with the team. So, Beckham’s standing with the team will be worth monitoring as the Giants OTAs begin this Monday. Will he want to show up to make a good impression for his new head coach? Or might Womens Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey he hold out on attending these voluntary activities?

The network, whose Sunday NFL pregame show is based Los Angeles, is expected to air Thursday’s show from the Big Apple, with Michael Strahan hosting. He would be joined by Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw. The trio would also continue its duties on the Sunday pregame show.

With Strahan co-hosting Good Morning America Monday thru Friday, he would not have been an option for the pregame show if it remained in L.A.

FOX landed rights to part of the NFL’s Thursday Night Football package, and has been trying to land big names to join the game coverage. While a pursuit of Peyton Manning failed, adding Strahan’s recognizable face and name to the lead-up before games certainly will give the broadcast a familiar feel for fans.

A rough outing Friday night by Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia was worse than it looked to the naked eye.

Golden State Warriors Kids Jersey After allowing three solo homers in four innings facing the Baltimore Orioles, Sabathia exited with right hip soreness.

The Orioles were leading 3-2 when Sabathia’s second start of the season ended with reliever Tommy Kahnle entering to start the fifth.

Sabathia’s pitch count was at just 58, so it was obvious something was wrong, and a few minutes later the Yankees announced the injury.

The only indication that something possibly was wrong came in the second inning when Sabathia botched making a play on a chopper just to the third-base side of the mound that was scored a single.

If Sabathia goes on the disabled list, the Yankees options to for a call-up include Domingo German, who impressed during spring training, and Chance Adams, one of the organization’s top pitching prospects.

Elite Womens Garett Bolles Jersey That’s stupid. That’s stupid, man, Green told NFL Network at rapper Quavo’s celebrity flag football game in Lilburn, Georgia, on Sunday. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime, or once-in-a-generation talent, man, and you’ve got to be ready. I think he’ll get paid. They not that crazy.

There were three ties for spots in the draft order, but only the 49ers and Raiders went to a coin flip to decide. The 49ers won and will pick No. 9 while the Raiders get the 10th pick. The ties between Washington and Green Bay, and Dallas and Detroit were decided by a tiebreaker of records against common opponents in the NFC.

After compensatory picks were handed out, the NFL released the entire draft for all seven rounds. Since then, there have already been a few changes due to trades. Most notably, the Bengals and Bills swapped their first-round picks when Cincinnati traded for left tackle Cordy Glenn.

The Patriots now have two first-round picks after shipping off Brandin Cooks to LA. The Rams won’t pick for the first time until the third round.

Authentic Womens Brian Robison Jersey Ex-UCLA coach Jim Mora made waves when he said a week ago the Cleveland Browns should take USC product Sam Darnold over his former quarterback, Josh Rosen.

Speaking on NFL Network, Mora cited fit to explain why he believed Darnold would play better in Cleveland than Rosen. Most of the football world, however, couldn’t get past the headline of Mora trumpeting a former rival over one of his own players.

Richardson, the franchise founder, ceded day-to-day control of the team in December to Tina Becker, a 20-year employee of the team, who was promoted Alex Okafor Jersey to chief operating officer. Goodell said last week that Richardson, 81, remains under NFL investigation.

As Jared Dubin of CBS Sports relayed, Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden made some waves at the combine when he said he wanted to throw the game back to 1998.

I’m not going to rely on GPS’s and all the modern technology, Gruden said. I will certainly have some people that are professional that can help me from that regard. But I still think doing things the old-fashioned way is a good way.

Unfortunately, it appears Gruden wasn’t kidding.

Schoenfield: Rookie of the Year. After his spring performance, I suggested that the Angels had to consider starting him in the minors. His first start showed why that won’t be necessary. There’s always the chance he loses complete command of his fastball and has to be sent down, but he’s probably here to stay, and he’s certainly capable of a 3-WAR season just on the mound. Without any other obvious Rookie of the Year favorites in the American League, he could be the winner.

Miller: Rookie of the Year award. Ohtani is certainly one of the Angels’ 10 best players, and that’s probably conservative.

Whether it’s Foles or Wentz leading the team come Week 1, what if the Eagles get off to a bad start Every team in the NFL will be gunning for Philly in 2018.

If a hobbled Wentz is ineffective, fans may begin to call for Foles to start after his heroics in the Super Bowl. If Foles plays less like the Super Bowl MVP version of himself and more like the journeyman he’s been most of his career, there will be calls to put Wentz in—healthy or not.

The Eagles are one of the NFL’s most talented teams. That they kept rolling even after Wentz’s injury speaks to their ability to weather adversity.

A full-blown controversy at the NFL’s most important position might be the one thing that can knock the Iggles Express off the tracks.

Todd Frazier hit a run-scoring double in the sixth and d’Arnaud added a two-out RBI single that chased Ben Lively (0-1), who plunked Yoenis Cespedes with a pitch to begin the rally.
