Texans’ J.J. Watt Jersey receives honorary doctorate from Baylor College of Medicine

J.J. Watt can add a medical degree to his impressive list of off-field achievements.

The Texans defensive end on Tuesday was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from Baylor College of Medicine for his efforts during Hurricane Harvey relief.

Watt raised more than $37 million for Harvey relief after setting an initial goal of $200,000 and was awarded the Walter Payton Man of the Year award for his accomplishment.

The four-time All-Pro was also named the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year and included on the TIME 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

The Falcons needed more punch at receiver opposite Julio Jones, and this allows Mohamed Sanu to move back into a regular role in the slot. Ridley is more of a possession type, but that’s OK, as Jones still has plenty left as the gamebreaker. Ridley is a smooth route runner with good hands. Atlanta goes for its second ‘Bama boom at the position in eight years.

Doc Rivers gets contract extension from Clippers

The LA Clippers announced Wednesday that they have agreed to a contract extension with coach Doc Rivers.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Rivers was entering the final season of his contract, which pays him more than $11 million.

The Clippers are undergoing a rebuild of sorts. They traded Chris Paul to the Rockets last June and then dealt Blake Griffin to the Pistons in January. They have the 12th and 13th picks in the June 21 draft.

Rivers is 846-624 in his career as a head coach with Orlando, Boston and Los Angeles, including an 82-79 playoff record with two trips to the NBA Finals and an NBA championship in 2008 with the Boston Celtics.

“The way I felt when I was playing in Montreal, I was comfortable there,” Niemi said on a conference call. “I didn’t need to change that.

“It wasn’t about getting the most money.”

Niemi was 0-3-0 with a 7.49 goals-against average when Pittsburgh placed him on waivers on Oct. 24, and he was 0-1-1 with a 5.11 GAA — allowing five goals on 39 shots in two appearances — when he was put on waivers again by the Panthers on Nov. 14.

But the Finnish veteran settled down nicely when claimed that day by Montreal, where he was reunited with goalie coach Stephane Waite. The two had worked together when Niemi backstopped the Chicago Blackhawks to a Stanley Cup in 2010.

One good beating per series is plenty for Draymond Green and Golden State.

The Warriors got it in Game 2 at Houston, and now the defending champions plan to do what they seem to do best: bounce back with brilliance.

As the Western Conference finals showdown shifts to Oracle Arena for Sunday’s Game 3, tied at one game apiece, the Warriors have spent the past few days discussing their Game 2 troubles –a 127-105 loss and what they’re striving to do in order not to be dominated again.

It’s time to play.

“I think we’re at our best when we feel threatened,” Green said Saturday. “Game 1 we felt threatened, we came out with a sense of urgency. Game 2 we maybe didn’t feel as threatened and the sense of urgency wasn’t there. I think you’re allowed one of those a series. We’ve had our one, now it’s time to lock in for the remainder of the series.”

James is averaging 32 points, 6.8 rebounds and 9 assists on 54 percent shooting, including 39 percent from 3-point range, in a conference finals series in which his team is fighting an uphill battle that’s as challenging as any East series he has played in eight years. Yet there was some discussion about how he had six turnovers and just one assist after halftime on Monday.

He now has 22 30-point playoff games and four 40-point playoff games against the glorious Celtics franchise, moving into Wilt Chamberlain and Jerry West territory. He passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for most baskets in postseason history (in five fewer games). He already has the most points and steals among anyone in playoff history.

Elite Charlie Lindgren Jersey And when it was over, there was a collective shrug. James was nonchalant after the game, talking about the need to take some series momentum to Boston for Game 5. He spent significantly more time after the game praising Kyle Korver (14 points, three blocks) and Tristan Thompson (13 points and 12 rebounds, to go with strong defense) than talking about anything he did.

In the locker room as he iced his body after yet another 40-minute outing, James was talking to his 3-year-old daughter, Zhuri, on FaceTime when she asked to talk to Kevin Love. James passed the phone to Love and Zhuri complimented Love on his game, which included 3-of-12 shooting, five turnovers and five fouls.

Incognito said last month that issues with his liver and kidneys were behind his decision to retire, although the later twists and turns suggest that it may have been more about a lack of desire to play on the reduced salary he agreed to take earlier in the year. We’ll see if he finds a bigger offer somewhere else or if his willingness to play for less increases outside of Buffalo.

Report: Jerry Richardson’s Sale of Panthers to David Tepper Jersey Could Happen Tuesday

Kids Ben Roethlisberger Jersey It may only be a matter of time before the Carolina Panthers switch ownership.
MLB Oakland Athletics Nike Authentic Collection Legend Logo 1.5 Performance T-Shirt - Green
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Jerry Richardson’s sale of the franchise to hedge fund manager David Tepper could be completed on Tuesday.聽A vote would then take place at the NFL’s spring league meeting in Atlanta next week.

Authentic Mike Gesicki Jersey When the allegations聽came to light, Richardson issued a聽statement聽revealing聽that it was time for him to step aside from the team:

I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership. Therefore, I will put the team up for sale at the conclusion of this NFL season. We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played. I hope everyone in this organization, both on and off the field, will be firmly focused on just one mission: to play and win the Super Bowl.

Tepper has long been the favorite to buy the Panthers. The sale is expected to come in just above $2 billion. As a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2009, league owners are familiar with Tepper. Also key to the purchase is the hedge fund manager’s plan to keep the Panthers in Charlotte.

The next step for the billionaire investor is to sell his minority stake Reto Berra Jersey in the Steelers and get approved by NFL owners. After being vetted, however, the sale is assumed to proceed without hitches.

Richardson has owned the team ever since its inception back in 1995.

Tepper, meanwhile, has been a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers sine 2009. Per聽Forbes, the 60-year-old has a net worth of $11 billion. ESPN’s David Newton noted that Tepper鈥攚ho would have to sell his stake in the Steelers鈥攈as already been cleared by the league’s vetting process as a result of his previous investment.

Another year in a professional facility will also allow him to add more strength in order to fight through blockers and stop the run. Cunningham doesn’t play at a premium position, but he’s going to jump out as an all-around playmaker in the upcoming term.

The season hasn’t opened.

At stake in the rehearsals is nothing less than the future of the Democratic Party, which has yet to congeal around a positive vision. Party leaders privately talk about the next two years as a potential pivot point for what it means to be a Democrat, like the tumultuous 1968 Democratic convention or the business-friendly realignment that followed President Bill Clinton’s nomination in 1992.

My theory of this election is you are going to basically have a swing back, said Julián Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio and secretary of Housing and Urban Development, who has been traveling the country talking aboutexpanding opportunity.People are going to look for someone who can unite the country instead of divide it, someone they can trust.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who will speak Sunday at a graduation in the first primary state of New Hampshire, has ­focused on another theme, the wisdom that can be brought to Washington from those working outside the dysfunctional city.

Manning will do for Lauletta what he did for Davis Webb and all the quarterbacks the Giants have added to their roster over the years. He’ll act as a mentor, both on and off the field, with the full knowledge that he might be grooming the player who will take his job someday.

He’s been a champion, he’s been a really successful player and I’m looking forward to learning from him, Lauletta said.

But coming in behind Manning works in his favor in another way, one that the Giants are unlikely to admit. The 37-year-old quarterback’s play, with with exceptions, has been somewhere between mediocre and lousy over the last few years. The addition of Saquon Barkley to the backfield, the return of Odell Beckham Jr. from an injury and the rebuilt offensive line should certainly help.

I was hoping to at least get a job — a chance to coach third base or first base, work with the infielders, Pedrique said. But like I was saying, you’ve got to stay positive. It happened for a reason. I’m happy where I am right now. But I always pay attention to what those kids are doing because, for me, they’re all like my kids. I had them since 2013 and now to see all those guys playing together up in the big leagues, it’s a great feeling.

DeMarco Murray Jersey among backs Saints could consider in Mark Ingram’s absence

The Saints made a big move up the draft board in the first round of the draft to get defensive end Marcus Davenport in a deal that seemed to signal their desire to do everything possible to make another run at a championship while quarterback Drew Brees is still in top form.
Youth Nike Cleveland Browns #32 Jim Brown Limited Black/Gold Salute to Service NFL Jersey
Will they make another move in light of Tuesday’s news that running back Mark Ingram will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season? Alvin Kamara’s presence means they still have a high-level running back on hand, but Kamara only averaged 12.5 touches in a game last season and the other backs on the roster 鈥?Trey Edmunds, Daniel Lasco, Jonathan Williams and sixth-round pick Boston Scott 鈥?have limited NFL experience.

Trump previously denied knowledge of the payment from Cohen to Daniels, and he聽later said of Giuliani, He’ll get his facts straight.

The former mayor of New York City, used to be a staple in the seats near the Yankees’ dugout at the old Yankee Stadium during his time in office, and given the magnitude of the series between the Red Sox and Yankees, it’s no surprise he carved out time to make an appearance.

Authentic Womens Michael Vick Jersey The Yankees won the series opener between the two teams with a 3-2 decision on Tuesday, which tied Boston and New York for the best record in MLB at 25-10.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane cited knowledge of the offense and overall development as the reason behind Buffalo’s decision to place Allen third on the quarterback depth chart behind AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman. This is a pecking order that can, and very likely will, change fast. The rookie doesn’t exactly have to jump Staubach and Favre here.

Authentic Womens Travis Hamonic Jersey Rosen is thought to be the most pro-ready of any of the Big Five, and Cardinals coach Steve Wilks is already on record saying that Rosen will be given the opportunity to win the starting job this summer. Then again, Arizona didn’t give Sam Bradford $20 million(!) to waste away on the sideline. The best solution might be (another) Bradford trade, potentially to a team that suddenly develops a quarterback need. (Think Jay Cutler to the Dolphins last year or Bradford to the Vikings in 2016.) If Bradford sticks around, history tells us it will Womens T.J. Ward Jersey be just a matter of time before an injury clears the way for Rosen.

The Jets are already backing off the early-offseason party line that Josh McCown will open the season as the starting quarterback for the second straight year. This wouldn’t be a terrible plan; giving Darnold some time to marinate makes a ton of sense for Gang Green.

Trent Brown Jersey ready to compete for left tackle job if that’s what Patriots ask

Authentic Youth Shaun Livingston Jersey Trent Brown doesn’t have much experience at left tackle in the NFL, but he has done it, and his small sample size says he can do it. So if the Patriots decide Brown is a candidate to replace Nate Solder, Brown is ready for the challenge.
Youth Jordan Crawford Authentic White Nike Jersey: NBA New Orleans Pelicans #27 Association Edition
I mean, I was competing every year, Brown said. Every year I was there, somebody was drafted or brought in so, you know, I’ve just got to rise to the level of the occasion and do what I do.

Morgan has served as the Seahawks’ director of pro personnel under Scott Fitterer and Trent Kirchner.

He will join former Panthers executive Brandon Beane in Buffalo.

The Bills had a hole in their front office after Brian Gaine left to become the Texans General Manager.

Still, it was a hard decision for Witten after the offer presumably came last Javorius Allen Authentic Jersey week.
Authentic Youth Trevor Siemian Jersey
I don’t know that anybody knows when it’s their time to go. I certainly did not, Witten said. It was emotional. I never thought about that day. Certainly didn’t think about it as I was preparing for my 16th season. But I just through a lot of counsel, right here with the guy to the left of me and the guy to the right of me and my family. Certainly, it was a difficult time.

Payton also confirmed that the team does not plan to bring in a running back to provide assistance for Alvin Kamara during Ingram’s absence. Sixth-round pick Boston Scott joins Jonathan Williams and Trey Edmunds as in-house options for that role.

I don’t want to talk about that, Carrasco said when asked about Bauer’s love for advanced analytics. It gets me crazy.

Three years at UCLA and eight seasons of pro ball have taught Bauer the value of divergent viewpoints in a clubhouse. The adjustments required to be part of a productive workplace atmosphere are just as challenging as the time he logged at the Driveline training facility in suburban Seattle this offseason, trying to get a handle on a bouncing baby slider.

David Parry Jersey visiting Vikings

Nicklas Backstrom Authentic Jersey
Defensive tackle David Parry started every game for the Colts during the 2015 and 2016 seasons, but has not landed a job this offseason Shaun Livingston Jersey after a 2017 season marred by injuries and off-field trouble.
Women's Cal Ripken Replica White Majestic Jersey: MLB Baltimore Orioles #8 Home Cool Base
That could change if things go well during a Thursday visit. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Parry is meeting with the Vikings.

Allen is a very polarizing prospect, and we’ll likely get to see him under center quickly, considering that his competition for starting duties is AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman. The Bills operate a run-first offense and seriously lack talent at wide receiver and on the offensive line. Allen might play a lot in 2018, but he’s very unlikely to emerge as a fantasy asset anytime soon. Allen’s shortcomings make him a long shot for NFL success, but he’s a name to monitor in dynasty leagues.

Montravius Adams Authentic Jersey Both players are in the final years of their rookie contracts. Matthews, a 2014 first-round pick, is set to make just under $12.5 million after the Falcons exercised their fifth-year option on his contract while Jarrett, a 2015 fifth-round pick, is making just over $1.9 million in 2018.

Matthews has missed just one game since joining the Falcons and he鈥檚 started every game he鈥檚 played in Atlanta. Jarrett has developed into a key part of the Atlanta front seven over the last two years and posted 34 tackles and four sacks during the 2017 season.

The Cowboys made the shocking decision to release Dez Bryant earlier this month, leaving them with arguably the league’s shakiest wide receiver situation. They took a step toward filling Bryant’s 133 targets from last year by selecting Gallup in the third round. The Colorado State product is a solid all-around receiver, sporting a good combination of size (6-foot-1, 205 pounds) and speed (4.51 40 yard dash) to go with terrific toughness and tackle-breaking ability. His efficiency was much better in 2016 than it was last year, but Gallup still hauled in 100 of 165 targets for 1,413 yards and seven scores in his final season. He finished as Pro Football Focus’ highest-graded wide receiver.

The Panthers are looking at receivers, and Ridley is the top talent left on the board.

Giving Cam Newton a versatile receiver would help keep this offense fresh and allow Carolina to draft offensive and defensive line throughout the rest of the draft.

Looking at the Panthers’ roster, it’s clear this team has a lot of talent but also a lot of holes. An infusion of young talent on offense and defense is sorely needed and the new talent needs to be able to contribute early.

Carolina has to use its four picks in the top 100 on players who not only fill a need but also can step onto the field in 2018 and claim a prominent role in the lineup.

(He posted 50-goal seasons at various levels in each of his four seasons before coming to the NHL.) We have already seen this postseason how important Hischier and McAvoy are to their respective teams. Meanwhile, Boeser may already be the next face of the Vancouver Canucks following the retirement of the Sedins.

My answer, however, is Barzal, the unequivocal Calder Trophy front-runner. Russ Farwell, the GM of Barzal’s junior team, the Seattle Thunderbirds, told me in January that, as he watched Barzal thrive with the New York Islanders from afar, the thing that impressed him most was that Barzal hadn’t changed his game at all — despite the significant talent jump from the WHL to NHL. Combine that confidence with pure talent and you have a recipe for a long and illustrious NHL career. Plus, everything you hear about Barzal is that he’s a true student of the game. The 20-year-old is poised for long-term success.

Safety: The Panthers parted ways with Kurt Coleman this offseason to clear cap space and to get younger and faster at the position. They signed former Titans safety Da’Norris Searcy in free agency and Mike Adams is likely to start again at strong safety. But the former should be more of a depth signing, and the latter, at 37, is no spring chicken, so this position needs to be addressed sooner than later.canucks_684
