Zach Ertz restructures deal with Eagles

The Eagles created some cap space earlier this week by restructuring right tackle Lane Johnson&s contract and they’ve repeated the process with another veteran member of the team.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that tight end Zach Ertz has also agreed to alter his contract in order to give the team more money to use this offseason. Yates reports that Ertz will convert $7.91 million of his $8 million base salary into a roster bonus.

In fact, it’s actually a little surprising that we haven’t seen more cases of deals that were reported as done on Monday and Tuesday falling through on Wednesday and Thursday. Any verbal agreements made before the start of the league year are unenforceable. As the Colts found out when they tried to hire Josh McDaniels, nothing is done in the NFL until a contract is signed.

So Ngata may still be an Eagle, maybe as soon as today. But it’s not done yet.

Davis, 29, has ed six seasons, five with the Jets. He spent 2016 in Cleveland.

This offseason, Mathieu embraced “self-reflecting” like never before. Be it in a sauna at a Life Time gym down the street or doing yoga here in his basement with an instructor, Mathieu will close his eyes and visualize helicoptering into quarterbacks, tattooing receivers, crossing his arms like a boss, playing with an unapologetic cockiness. After all, a player who’s always been the smallest on every field needs that attitude. Otherwise, he admits, “I’m a pedestrian.”

The apparent interest in a quarterback makes the decision to re-sign Josh McCown at $10 million and to sign Teddy Bridgewater in the range of $5 million even more curious, and it suggests that, eventually, 2016 second-rounder Christian Hackenberg (who has never ed in a regular-season game) will be gone.

It also cuts against the win-now vibe that G.M. Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles otherwise have been exuding. A high pick spent on a er who won’t could have been a high pick spent on a er who will .

Matt Forte, the Jets’ second-leading rusher, has retired. Their leading rusher, Bilal Powell, turns 30 in October.

Free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh told Yahoo Sports that the Jets have emerged as a contender to sign him..

Those three other teams, however, are all coming off playoff appearances and boast elite defensive lines.

Womens Vincent Rey Jersey The Jets, who like the Rams would ask Suh to play in the 3-4 scheme 锟紺 cannot offer either.

Bowles锟斤拷 defense could certainly use a player of Suh锟斤拷s caliber, considering the Jets released? Muhammad Wilkerson (saving $11 million in cap space) last month.

He would also help alleviate pressure for Leonard Williams, a 2016 Pro Bowler whom the team selected sixth overall in 2015.

Smith has only 7.5 career sacks. But it seemed finally to click for the 26-year-old last season as he made three sacks and broke Paul Hornung Jersey up two passes in his most significant ing time. Smith ed 35 percent of the team’s defensive snaps and 88 special teams s in 2017.

Brandon Belt Limited Jersey In 19 games over three seasons in Jacksonville, Smith received limited ing time. The Jaguars traded him to the Bengals a year ago for a conditional pick.

The Denver Broncos couldn’t afford to flounder at quarterback any longer. They have talent elsewhere on the offense, especially at wide receiver with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. And a third-ranked defense in 2017 is still capable of pushing the Broncos deep into the playoffs.

They need someone at the helm of the offense who can provide above-average play. The problem is that in today’s NFL, as the value of quarterbacks skyrockets each year, signing even a second-tier passer gets expensive fast.

Mike Evans’ mega-deal gives Odell Beckham Jersey contract starter

Odell Beckham Jr. can thank Mike Evans for getting the ball rolling.
Youth Replica Majestic Josh Harrison Orange Jersey - #5 MLB Pittsburgh Pirates National League 2017 MLB All-Star
The Buccaneers signed their stud wide receiver to a five-year, $82.5 million extension Friday with $55 million guaranteed, according to ESPN. The deal provides a baseline for what Beckham can reasonably ask for from the Giants as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

Co-owner John Mara has expressed his desire to have Beckham be a Giant for life, but the LSU product has some making up to do this year and he needs to prove himself to new general manager Dave Gettleman and new coach Pat Shurmur. Before his 2017 season ended, Beckham’s antics included a touchdown celebration where he mimicked a urinating dog.

Sliding all the way down in a deal with the Bills could bring back No. 12 and 22 in the first round and, in the second round, the 53rd and 65th overall picks, plus a 2019 second-round pick. It is believed Gettleman would hold out for more the Bills would have to include their 2019 first-round pick. That is a bounty the Giants would have to consider, but the smart money is on them staying put and taking a player they see greatness in.

There’s a lot of things I can do at No. 1 and Ramon Foster Jersey not just get a quarterback, Dorsey said at the combine. My door is wide open if somebody wants to come up and talk to me about a trade, I’m willing to trade. But also I’m going to do what’s best for this organization, and I will do that.

Can’t make this up, continued: With commercials, timeouts and replay reviews, the final 53 seconds of Friday’s Wichita State-Marshall NCAA Tournament game took 18 minutes and 25 seconds to complete. Seriously. Nearly 20 minutes to play 53 seconds. It’s called progress.

Great special attraction idea by NBCSN, having actress and Rangers super fan Susan Sarandon serve as Pierre McGuire’s ice-side co-analyst on Wednesday’s Penguins-Rangers. She soon seemed to be on our side, sounding as if she thought this was as ridiculous and intrusive an idea as it predictably was. TV folks never run low on bad ideas.

Elite Womens Joey Bosa Jersey Now, Crowley is starting fresh in New York with her boyfriend of a year, a Wall Street banker. They moved from Houston to the Authentic Will Lutz Jersey Financial District in January, and she is now interviewing for marketing and event-planning jobs. She said she is telling her story to inspire other women struggling to move on from abusive relationships.

Womens James Young Jersey Immediately after [an assault] you feel so powerless 鈥?you’re stripped of your dignity, your self-worth, Crowley said. Trying to get back to that place where you really know yourself is a journey.

And while she’s moved on from Manziel, the ordeal weighs heavy on her heart.

I will never have closure. I will never publicly get an apology, she said. That’s really hard, being so close to someone and you both knowing what happened.

Clayborn was the Buccaneers’ first-round pick in 2011 and played four years in Tampa. He then played three years in Atlanta.

Last year Clayborn had a career-high 9.5 sacks, including six sacks in one game against an overmatched Cowboys backup left tackle, and 3.5 sacks in the other 15 games.

In 2013, Clayborn caused Tom Brady to suffer a knee injury during a joint practice between the Buccaneers and Patriots. If he steers clear of anything that could injure Brady in the future, he should fit in well in New England.

Concussions are cumulative, and how the Giants view Rosen’s health history could be the difference in ranking in ahead or behind Darnold.

One clear separating factor is what the two did while attending the NFL Scouting Combine. Rosen opted to throw, Darnold did not.

I mean, ball is ball, Rosen said. That’s what we do is we throw the football, so coming in here, I thought, ‘Why not?’

Darnold did not see it that way.

According to Barstool Sports (Pardon My Take), the Raiders have traded wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson to the New England Patriots.

Beane: “We wanted to find a spot for him, not to just put him somewhere. We were open and honest with him and his agent. Sometimes these situations can get salty, but here, everybody wanted to do the right thing and not be confrontation. Getting the 65th pick was huge. Patience was the key. I am very happy how it worked out for the Bills and for Tyrod and the financial part was a part of it. When it’s all said and done, we’re going to have about $45 million in dead money this year. That was part of my plan—to eat all of it, or as much as we could, this year.”

Most of these quarterbacks I’ve only spent 15 minutes with. [At the combine, each team can meet with prospects for a maximum of 15 minutes per player.] I haven’t spent enough time to have an opinion about any of them yet, honestly. I actually sent a little note to our [scouts] yesterday. We got six weeks to get our board together. I am not there yet, knowing if we can or will move up again. I want Sean to get to know all of them. We’re just keeping an open mind. Where we’re at, we’ve got the picks, we’ve got the draft capital. I’m not ready to pull the trigger.”

Soon after the news dropped, The Athletic’s Vic Tafur also confirmed the trade sending Patterson out of Oakland.

Patterson is on the second year of his two-year deal, $8.5 million deal, and was set to count $3.25 million against the salary cap this season for the Raiders, per Spotrac. After signing Jordy Nelson in free agency and Seth Roberts getting his roster bonus on Friday as well as his 2018 contract being guaranteed, it did leave the future of the rest of Oakland’s receivers up in the air.

Few teams have made as many considerable changes as the Washington Redskins this offseason, starting with their trade for quarterback Alex Smith, their signing of wide receiver Paul Richardson Jr. and the departure of starting cornerback Bashaud Breeland. It remains to be seen how their in-house talent will mesh with their new parts, but it’s clear one move was a great decision.patriots_102

Browns coach Hue Jackson names Tyrod Taylor Jersey starting QB

Matt Ryan Youth Jersey Men's Majestic Milwaukee Brewers #21 Travis Shaw Replica Grey Road Cool Base MLB Jersey
The signing period opens March 14 at 4 p.m,Allen Park 锟紺 A healthy scratch six of the first nine games last season, there was plenty of gnashing of teeth and wringing of hands from the Detroit Lions fan base each time rookie cornerback Teez Tabor showed up on the inactive list,The frustration was understandable.

No one wants to see a second-round pick wasting away on the bench, but it’s easy to forget that a draft pick is a four-year investment.

General manager Bob Quinn knew he had plenty of depth at cornerback when he selected Tabor, and Quinn couldn’t have envisioned the group would be so durable, limiting the rookie’s early opportunities,The positive from the situation is it allowed Tabor to develop on the practice field and avoid taking his lumps on Sundays, like so many rookie corners do.

The deal will reportedly pay Robinson as much as $42 million over three years, with $25 million guaranteed, per Ian Rapoport. That puts his deal just below what the Chiefs gave Sammy Watkins, three years with $30 million guaranteed.

The 24-year-old was a sought-after receiver thanks to his strong track record of production. In his last two seasons before his ACL tear, Robinson totaled 153 receptions, 2,283 yards, Nick Ritchie Youth jersey and 20 touchdowns on a team with few other offensive weapons.

He did all of that with an inconsistent Blake Bortles as his quarterback. The Bears are hoping he’ll find even more success as Mitchell Trubisky’s No. 1 receiver. Chicago needed to add offensive firepower in support of its second-year quarterback this season. They did just that with Robinson.

Robinson from 2015 is. The 2018 version makes this a tougher question. His breakout sophomore season established him as both a deep threat 锟斤拷 he averaged 17.5 yards per catch 锟斤拷 and a red zone target (14 touchdowns). While his 6’3 frame helps mitigate any loss of athleticism that comes with his recovery, a lost step could downgrade him from true WR1 to a supporting role.

Lillard scored 21 points after halftime. He leads the league in second-half scoring.

It’s not just about him being a great player, it is the timing of his greatness, that is so unique, Spoelstra added. Every time there needs to be a big time play, or if momentum started to go our way, he made that play.

But Lillard credited Nurkic, who was two points shy of his season high. Lillard said he’s seen the work the center is putting in behind the scenes.

That’s the Nurk we need, just a beast, taking his time, scoring on the block, making plays off the block, rebounding the ball, blocking shots, Lillard said. I Aaron Burbridge Jersey think his presence was really felt on both ends of the floor.

You could tell he’s trying to focus on being physical and finishing his shots.

Last Monday, I wrote about the process of the Philadelphia 76ers, based upon a panel that I saw at the recent MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference (SSAC) entitled Trust the Process? Team building and rebuilding in the NBA that featured former 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie, Boston Celtics co-owner Stephen Pagliuca, LA Clippers GM Lawrence Frank, former Cleveland Cavaliers GM David Griffin and former NBA player Chris Bosh, with Howard Beck as the moderator.

Authentic Womens Michael Wacha Jersey There was a clear disagreement among the panelists as to what the process actually is and whether it’s the best route to rebuild. Hinkie was the architect who brought about the current state of the 76ers. He explained that he felt there are only a small number of ways that teams can really get better, and this was his philosophy as a GM:

Dec. 12: Headley, acquired in a clear salary dump, could again be on the move, but he’s an only-league option wherever he winds up. Mitchell’s spring warrants a look, as in the right role he could be an NL-only sleeper.

Adidas NHL Youth Mathieu Perreault Navy Blue Home Authentic Jersey - #85 Winnipeg Jets
Cousins’ free throw attempt was long, but he chased it down in an effort to regain possession and kill what was left of the clock. Suddenly, Cousins was unable to put any weight on his left leg, and watching the game live, the initial fear was there: a dreaded Achilles injury.

My end goal is to allow the Lord to let me come back and play at the high level that I was before, Shazier said. Every day I try to get better. I strive for the Hall of Fame and I was doing that through this year, the whole time I was playing. And I still do that while I’m doing rehab. I know it’s still a possibility. I have the Lord and he has my back and I constantly feel I’m going to come back and play football.

Shazier told teammate Roosevelt Nix in February that he’s continuing to make progress every day and wants to play again.

It will be difficult for the Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey Seahawks to retain the services of tight end Jimmy Graham, but the franchise tag isn’t a viable way to make that happen. Graham is already one of the highest-paid players in the league at his position so the tag would result in him getting 120 percent of his 2017 salary, which would mean a $12 million cap hit in 2018. The other possibility is Sheldon Richardson, but the tag for defensive linemen is even more expensive and the Seahawks just don’t have that much cap room to work with. It’s likely the exit door for both Graham and Richardson in Seattle.
Elite Adam Larsson Jersey
Cornerback Brent Grimes is the interesting free agent decision looming for the Buccaneers after the 34-year old played out his two-year, $16 million contract and is headed to free agency. But Grimes is getting close to retirement and the franchise tag would be overkill to bring back an aging cornerback. There’s no reason for the Buccaneers to use the tag this year.

There are a few free agents the Titans will want to bring back, but the only real candidate to receive the franchise tag is kicker Ryan Succop. He’s spent four seasons as Tennessee’s kicker and has been relatively reliable the whole time. It’d be easier to just extend Succop, but the franchise tag isn’t expensive for kickers so it could make sense if no deal is in place by the time March rolls around.

James Harden injury update: Rockets star to return Thursday vs. Timberwolves

James Harden is back.

The five-time All-Star has been sidelined for a little over two weeks with a hamstring injury, but coach Mike D’Antoni announced Harden will start Thursday night against the Timberwolves.

The Rockets are 4-3 in Harden’s absence, and they will be without Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green against Minnesota after the NBA suspended them two games for entering the Clippers’ locker room after Monday night’s game.

Season Points scoring allows you to assign a given point value to each individual statistical category (i.e. HR=4, RBI=1, etc.) Standings are based on the accumulation of points covering all statistical categories and combined into one total points column. The team with the most overall points wins.

Some leagues use two divisions with the winner of each division granted the top two seeds in the playoffs, and the two or four next-best records earning the other playoff berths.

Hood is averaging 16.7 points and 2.9 rebounds per game, but he has been virtually out of the starting lineup since early November and seen his minutes go down as Mitchell’s have gone up.

The 25-year-old will be very intriguing in trade talks as he has height, length and can shoot. Plenty of teams will come calling to ask about him and apparently mutliple teams have already expressed interest.

They have assisted on 24 of Adebayo’s 89 baskets this season, the bulk of which have come off dribble penetration. Whenever one of them is able to draw Adebayo’s defender away from him, they can lob the ball to the basket confidently knowing he’ll be in position to score.

“It’s building chemistry. Every game building chemistry with my teammates,” Adebayo said. “If they throw it up there and trust we’re gonna go get it. Just having that trust in me, and me trusting them, that they’re gonna throw it to me.”packers_003

Isaiah Thomas Jersey happy in Cleveland, doesn’t want Cavs to trade him

Isaiah Thomas wants to stay put.
Reebok NHL Youth Lanny McDonald Royal Blue New Third Authentic Jersey - #7 Toronto Maple Leafs
Following the Cavaliers’ 140-138 win over the Timberwolves Wednesday, the veteran point guard acknowledged his sluggish start in Cleveland but said he’s hoping the team doesn’t trade him ahead of Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline.

Because Cousins won’t be on the tag, his agent can talk money with teams during the legal tampering period, which starts March 12. The new league year begins March 14. At that point, there’s a good chance Cousins will make an immediate visit to a team that likely made the best offer — or the best combination of offer and situation. A decision could come on the first night of free agency — if all goes well. Otherwise, he’d visit the next team on his list.

Kirk Cousins will be the rare high-level QB available in his prime. Jimmy Graham could be due for a change of scenery. Andrew Norwell is about to get paid. Here are the best players about to hit the open market.

It’s my job to get these guys integrated as fast as possible, James said, via I know the coaching staff and (coach) T Lue Jahleel Addae Womens Jersey is going to do it, as well, but it’s my job to get these guys on the same page with us where we want to accomplish what we want to do. I look forward to getting them here. … All four of them are pretty smart guys, and it should be fun.

The Cavs acquired guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr. from the Lakers, guard Rodney Hood from the Jazz and guard George Hill from the Kings. They lost Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Dwyane Wade, Iman Shumpert and Derrick Rose.

I think we became a younger team, more athletic. We added some more shooting as well. So, we’ll have to see how it meshes, James said. I like the pieces that we have coming in.

I want Isaiah to get his bounce back, get his spring back, get healthy, James said. You know, being out seven months is difficult for anybody.
