Keim: Roster additions almost certainly coming

The Cardinals begin their mandatory minicamp today, and by the end of the week, the players, coaches and front office will begin their vacations for the offseason. But by the time the Cardinals report to training camp in late July, it would not be a surprise to see the Cards add at least one key veteran.
Women's Nike Oakland Raiders #66 Gabe Jackson Limited Olive/USA Flag 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
Keim, speaking Tuesday on 98.7, Arizona Sports Station, said yes I do when asked on the Doug and Wolf show if he anticipated making roster additions heading into training camp.

There would be no finishing early in the offseason – the Cards played out all 10 OTAs and all three full minicamp practices. He demanded crisp work and let the team and individual players know it if Corey Grant Jersey he didn’t see it. He embraced the heat and believed working in it will make for a tougher team. If the Cardinals got anything out of offseason work, it’s what their new head coach demands.

I want to be interchangeable, Kirk said. It’s about mastering the system.

Wilks said Kirk has flashed in OTAs, catching a touchdown down the seam Monday.

We’re moving him around quite a bit, Wilks said. Just shows his versatility and his Jarius Wright Womens Jersey ability to play all positions. I know the thing was he was just a slot guy but he can play all positions.

Recently Wilks sent a letter to the widow of a local Pop Warner and assistant high school coach, Mike Thompson, who died unexpectedly. Wilks was asked why.

I know the impact he has probably had on those young men, Wilks said. Being a product of a single-parent home, my mom worked all the time at the post office, and if it wasn’t for my Pop Warner coaches, to be quite honest I don’t know if I’d be where I am today.

Wilks said he had a couple of Pop Warner coaches – Don Robinson and Ray Robinson, not related – who would make sure Wilks had something to eat or kept his grades up when his mom couldn’t be around.

Jeremiah Davis and Marquis Pendleton will continue to serve as executive scout and BLESTO scout, respectively.

In the Football Operations Department, Ed Triggs is the football operations coordinator, Ty Siam is football operations/data analytics, Charles Tisch is a football operations assistant, and Jessie Armstead, the former five-time Pro Bowl linebacker, is a special assistant to the general manager.

John (Jackie) Miles is the team’s new head equipment manager.

Joe Bugel and Emmitt Thomas are Dwight Howard Youth Jersey winners of the 2018 Paul Dr. Z Zimmerman Award given by the Professional Football Writers of America Authentic Niklas Kronwall Jersey for work as an NFL assistant coach. Bugel spent 27 of his 32 NFL seasons as an assistant coach and is best known for building Washington’s famous Hogs offensive line unit as the Redskins won three Super Bowls under head coach Joe Gibbs.

Again, the depth of the position makes even high-end producers tough to move.) If you’re not down for that sort of risk, either select a signal caller earlier, or wait a bit longer and snag Matt Stafford. Bottom line: There is zero reason to make this gamble, especially when considering that a quarter of Luck’s starts will come opposite the Jags and the Texans defensive units.

I never knew [Tatum] had that kind of toughness in him, Calipari said. What I saw [with Boston] he never showed in college. Now you have a skilled, long, tough player who’s a future All-Star. Kevin falls into that same mode right now.

The Knicks could decide between Villanova’s Mikal Bridges or Knox at No. 9, leaving the other for the Sixers to take at No. 10. There’s also a possibility that either team tries to trade up to the middle of the top 10 to land Knox (or another highly-touted star), leaving the dominos to fall later on.

Knox to Philly?

Knox, 18, averaged 15.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game as a freshman with Kentucky. That line included an impressive 34-point outing on the road at West Virginia.

Just with concussions, a player is five times as likely to suffer a concussion on a kickoff as he is on a passing or a running play, Murphy said in late March. So we know that information is out there. Having the touchback at the (25-yard line), now 60 percent of the kickoffs are, you know, not returned. So we’ve reduced the number of returns but we haven’t really done anything to make the play safer.

Johnny Manziel on field for 23 plays in first action for Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel made his preseason debut in the Canadian Football League on Friday night, completing 9 of 11 passes for 80 yards in five offensive possessions that did not result in any points for the Tiger-Cats.

Manziel was on the field for 23 plays after replacing starter Jeremiah Masoli, who played the first seven drives of the game. Masoli — who coach June Jones confirmed this week will absolutely be the opening-day starter — completed 8 of 13 passes for 115 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

Manziel’s fifth and final possession showed promise, as he advanced the Tiger-Cats’ offense from its own 29-yard line to the Toronto 12. He threw away his ensuing first-down pass out of bounds and was called for intentional grounding because the ball failed to reach the line of scrimmage, resulting in second-and-32.

Worst call of the century, Manziel said. I mean, my whole life I’ve been taught to throw it right at the stick that’s marking the down. I thought I got it there; he told me I was about a yard short. That’s the first time I’ve heard that.

Two of Manziel’s possessions ended on third-down sacks, the equivalent of a fourth-down sack in the NFL. Another possession ended when his receiver caught a pass but fumbled.

Manziel noted he is still adjusting to rule differences in the CFL, including a 20-second play clock.

It’s a lot quicker game, he said.

Jose Ramirez and Jason Kipnis hit three-run homers for Cleveland, which swept the three-game series by a 24-5 margin. The Indians have won 17 of their last 21 games against the White Sox at Progressive Field, including all six this season.

Kluber (11-3) only permitted a second-inning single past third base by Omar Narvaez and a third-inning walk to Charlie Tilson, throwing 96 pitches before giving way to George Kontos to begin the eighth. Josh Tomlin surrendered a double to Jose Abreu in the ninth before completing the combined two-hitter.

Hopefully in the long run, there will be a benefit to not throwing as many pitches as I usually do, said Kluber, who now has one more victory than Washington’s Max Scherzer and the Yankees’ Luis Severino. When the game is sort of out of hand like that, if [Francona] has the opportunity to save me a couple bullets, then why not?

Yonder Alonso added three hits and Yan Gomes doubled twice as the Indians chased White Sox righty Reynaldo Lopez (2-5) after 4 1/3 innings. Lopez gave up five runs, four earned, and is 0-3 with an 8.31 ERA in three career starts against Cleveland.

Then Stenson was asked what the USGA should do to make the course more playable for the final round.

I don’t think they’re Womens Robert Thomas Jersey interested in listening to my remarks or anyone else’s remarks because then we would have seen some different pin positions and set ups over the years, he said. It is what it is.

And yet when the Yankees think about how they got there, they’re all thinking the same thing:

They can get better.

Maybe a lot better if they add another ace pitcher such as Jacob deGrom or Cole Hamels before the July 31 trade deadline without subtracting from the big-league roster.

It’s going to be a lot of fun, right fielder Aaron Judge said. We’ve kind of dipped into it every now and then. Once it starts heating up a little bit and guys start coming around, it’s going to be a fun summer.

He’s not just going to necessarily go right to the top of the line, Beane said during an appearance on WGR 550, via He’ll have to earn his way. Part of that will just be just getting his feel. He’s only played with Nathan Peterman. He has not got to play with Josh Allen or AJ [McCarron] yet. So that bond there will just have to form.

Kelvin Benjamin is the top receiver in Buffalo with Andre Holmes, Jeremy Kerley and Brandon Reilly among the other non-Jones options. It’s an underwhelming list that would look a lot better if Jones can make good on the potential the Bills saw when he was at East Carolina.

He explained on Twitter that the incident shown on Monday’s episode was actually filmed months ago and he’s ready to play football.

I look forward to finding a team and seeing you all on NFL Sunday’s. Thanks for all thoughts and prayers! Harbor wrote.

Harbor also said in the interview that he Menelik Watson Jersey was recruited for The Bachelorette after a friend of his, who had previously tried out for the show, referred him to the casting crew.

Washington gives Super Bowl rings to 1987 replacement players

In 1987, the NFL players went on strike, and owners brought in replacement players for three weeks of the season. Washington’s replacement players went 3-0, including a huge upset of a Dallas team that had several players cross the picket line, and after the strike ended Washington’s regular players went on to win the Super Bowl.
Limited Ryan Allen Youth Alternate Red Nike Jersey - #6 NFL New England Patriots Vapor Untouchable
At the time, only the regular players got Super Bowl rings. Yesterday, that changed: Washington gave Super Bowl rings to its replacement players, at a ceremony attended by Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams and one of the team’s best defensive players, Dexter Manley.

And it was Womens Peter Holland Jersey a game that helped Washington win the NFC East. Although the replacement players who got their rings yesterday were long gone by the time Washington won the Super Bowl, they helped the team get there. And yesterday they were recognized.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman paid him the ultimate compliment, telling Watson he played the best game any quarterback has ever played against us.

It’s very motivating, very aspiring to have the knowledge of me being able to be successful so young and have players go out of their way to talk about me, Watson said. I respect everyone that mentioned my name and said good things about me. I appreciate it.

Watson, though, expects to be even better in his second season despite defensive coordinators having more tape on him than they did a year ago.

They adjust to me; I adjust to them, Watson said. They’re watching film on me; Nick Martin Youth Jersey I’m watching film on them. It’s a chess match. Whoever’s better on that Sunday is going to win the game. I have to stay in my lane and focus on what I have to do and listen to what the coaches are telling me to do. They’re going to make sure I’m prepared on game day.

Broncos add DeMarcus Ware as pass rush coach

The Denver Broncos added another pass rusher this time to the coaching staff.
Youth Replica Majestic Randy Johnson Green Jersey - #51 MLB Seattle Mariners Salute To Service
NFL Network’s James Palmer reports that the Broncos hired DeMarcus Ware as a pass rushing consultant on a part-time basis.

Ware worked this offseason as a guest instructor for the Broncos and Dallas Cowboys. The nine-time Pro Bowler elected to sign in Denver, where he spent the final three years of his 12-year career.

I don’t mean it disrespectful; if you’re taking it that way, that’s not on me,” Mickelson said after the round. I’m sorry that you’re taking it that way, it’s certainly not meant that way. Sometimes in these situations, it’s just easier to take the two shots and move on.”

There was some initial confusion about Mickelson’s score, both among Fox’s crew and the U.S. Open website, which initially gave Mickelson a nine for the hole. But ultimately, Mickelson carded a sextuple bogey – eight actual strokes at the ball, plus two extra for Jay Prosch Authentic Jersey the penalty.

During play of the 13th hole Phil Mickelson made a stroke on the putting green at the time his ball was moving, a USGA statement about the incident read. As a result, he incurred a two stroke penalty for a breach of Rule 14-5. His score for the hole was 10.

But they were large mistakes nonetheless. 

The first one came in 2010, when they traded second-, third- and fourth-round picks in exchange for Baltimore’s No. 25 overall selection, which they used on quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow helped Denver win a playoff game, but he started just 16 regular-season games before his career ended in 2012. 

The second mistake came in 2012, just weeks after they signed Manning, when they selected Brock Osweiler 57th overall. Not a bad risk considering Osweiler’s measurables, but the next quarterback off the board was Russell Wilson at No. 75. Osweiler has become a punchline, while Wilson is a Super Bowl champion and franchise quarterback in Seattle. 

Missing out on Wilson takes the cake because the Broncos considered drafting him. They hosted the Wisconsin product at their complex in the lead-up to the draft, according to’s Jeff Legwold, who suggested GM John Elway may have gone with the 6’7 Osweiler because the size advantage Garett Bolles Youth Jersey he had over the 5’11 Wilson.

Terrell Owens is right on the Hall of Fame

Before Terrell Owens announced he wasn’t going to attend his Hall of Fame induction ceremony—a decision that set off a legion of self-righteous attacks—he and I had a chat.

We were talking about how he had been training with Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones. It was around the NFL draft, so I asked Owens what advice he’d give incoming rookies.

Owens’ answer said so much about who he is—and it also might explain why he decided to skip his enshrinement.

Maybe that’s it. Or maybe Owens has some petty reasons we don’t know about. Maybe he deserves the roasting he’s getting from everyone in the media, including fellow Hall of Famers like Cris Carter and Tony Dungy. Or maybe he doesn’t.

One way or another, he has his reasons.

What I will say is, what we’re doing right now, we’re trying to make sure that everything is as simple as possible so when they run through that tunnel, we remove doubt out of the equation, Whitt said, via Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal. If we can remove doubt out of the equation as coaches, that allows them to play fast and now you can see the true athletic ability and play-making ability of the players. If they’re out there thinking, [that’s problematic]. You cannot tell the difference between a confused player and a coward — because they both move slowly. If you take that doubt out of the equation, now they’ll play fast, they’ll play with an edge and we’ll play with a tilted field. That’s what we’re trying to do.

The simplification process includes the terminology the team is using for play calls as well as the number of defenses that they will run on a weekly basis. Pettine said he has to be confident as a coach that I can go into this game with like 25, 30 defenses so that the players have all of them dialed in come Sunday.

Green Bay has also made changes to personnel. They drafted defensive players in the first three rounds and signed veteran free agents like Muhammad Wilkerson and Tramon Williams in hopes that a new system and new players will yield different results.

Giants ‘shocked’ by Gettleman’s lymphoma diagnosis

New York Giants players were informed Tuesday by coach Pat Shurmur that general manager Dave Gettleman was diagnosed with lymphoma. The news left the room stunned.
Limited Thomas Morstead Youth Black Nike Jersey - #6 NFL New Orleans Saints 2016 Salute to Service
Obviously we were a little shocked because no one really knew, rookie running back Saquon Barkley said, via We came together as a team, and coach kind of said he is in high spirits, he is getting better, he is going to fight this thing, and we are going to be there for Authentic Ryan Broyles Jersey him and pray for him.

Added Barkley: He is part of the reason why I’m here, why I got drafted to the New York Giants. It sucks to hear that for someone you care about, but at the same time you know the type of person he is and it sounds like he is in very high spirits. He knows for sure that everyone on the team has his back. We’re there for him. We’re going to continue to love him and pray for him.

Gettleman plans to work through treatments and will lean on assistant GM Kevin Abrams and Shurmur throughout the process.

While there may not be a single player who can replace Edelman as Brady’s favorite target, there are plenty of candidates to fill the void. Additionally, losing the veteran wideout for four games will also help alleviate the roster crunch that was sure to happen before Week 1.

By sliding Edelman to the suspended list, New England will get an extra month to figure Damian Lillard Jersey out the odd man out in their lineup. That extra time could be instrumental in determining whether Philip Dorsett can live up to his first-round billing, Matthews can restore his value after a brutal 2017, or Malcolm Mitchell can return to 100 percent after missing the entirety of last season.

The Patriots really don’t need any more drama. It’s tough to tell how much of the rumored drama behind the scenes in New England is real, and how much will disappear once the team starts winning football games again.

But here are some things that raise eyebrows:

The Patriots lost the Super Bowl and Malcolm Butler watched from the sideline. Reports have indicated the decision to bench Butler frustrated many Patriots players.

Former NFL RB Jerome Harrison’s inspirational tweets? Fake

The Twitter account posting inspirational recovery messages from former Lions and Browns running back Jerome Harrison is fake.
Youth Adidas Sergei Boikov Authentic Burgundy Red Home NHL Jersey: Colorado Avalanche #42
Harrison confirmed to ESPN on a phone call Thursday that the account
jharrison_35 was not his. The account has since been taken down and Harrison is not believed to be on social media.

I’m enjoying (recovery) in privacy, he told ESPN. That is all I was calling to say.

Detroit took a 1-0 lead in the first on Victor Martinez’s two-out RBI single.

Yan Gomes tied the game with a homer on the first pitch of the third inning, the 13th home run hit off Fiers in 12 starts.

Clevinger retired 17 straight batters after Martinez’s hit, but the Tigers loaded the bases with three straight singles with one out in the seventh. Iglesias took a 3-2 fastball down and away to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead.

Seahawks star safety Earl Thomas announced Sunday that he will not attend this week’s mandatory minicamp until my contract situation is resolved.

Mina Kimes, senior writer: I would extend him at $13 million a year, which is how much Eric Berry is making. If the Seahawks really aren’t in full rebuild mode (they’ve claimed it’s more of a little Jo-Lonn Dunbar Jersey reset), they need Thomas on the field to contend. He’s an all-world talent who showed no signs of decline last season.

Field Yates, NFL Insider: I’d extend Thomas and not overthink the financial ballpark too significantly — he’s going to be among the highest-paid safeties in the league. Thomas is the game’s most instinctive and versatile free safety. Seattle’s window might have a different outlook in 2018 compared to previous seasons, but Thomas is a homegrown elite player.

Mike Sando, senior NFL writer: I’d extend his contract for $12 million to $13 million a year. Thomas will want more than that, and it’s looking as if other teams Nemanja Bjelica Authentic Jersey aren’t offering a ton in a trade, so it’s not as simple as just saying extend him or trade him.

Adam Silver Says NBA and NFL’s National Anthem Situation Is ‘Far Different’

Adam Silver Says NBA and NFL’s National Anthem Situation Is ‘Far Different’ More While the NBA requires players to stand for the national anthem in its official rules, commissioner Adam Silver believes the situation is far different from that of the NFL, per Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post.

Silver also noted there are no plans to change the current policy, per Bontemps. As he explained, the rule on the books predates both himself and David Stern as commissioners: Womens Shilique Calhoun Jersey It’s been a different dialogue in the NBA than it’s been in the NFL,he added. Our emphasis, at least, has been on constructive activities in our communities.Silver also noted only about three-quarters of the league is comprised of Americans.

Not that Davis has had any confusion about that since his draft night.
Deion Sanders Jersey
These guys, J-Rob, he believed in me,Davis said of Robinson. He picked me at 5 and I’ve just got to prove to myself that I’m definitely worth that pick. And I will.

Tre’Davious White Womens Jersey Though no one in the organization will say it publicly, the expectation is that Allen will be the Bills’ starting quarterback sooner rather than later. The team would love for that to happen in time for opening day in Baltimore, because that would mean that Allen has made remarkable strides and is ready to shoulder the burden that comes with being the highest-drafted quarterback in the 59-year history of the franchise.

If it doesn’t happen that quickly, it’s probably OK, but the Bills aren’t going to want to wait too long for him to bypass McCarron, which is why these early-season sessions are so vital for Allen.聽

Everybody’s going through the same thing right now,Allen said. All (of the) quarterbacks are still trying to figure out entirely what’s going on with everybody. That’s the tough part of being quarterback 鈥?you’re supposed to know what everybody’s doing on the field. I’m going out there and I’m trying to do everything right. I’m not trying to do too much. Whatever coach Daboll and (quarterbacks coach David Culley) are preaching to me is what I’m going to go out there and I’m going to do.

The interception Thursday was bad, the touchdown was good, but most important, it was another day of learning, and that’s all Daboll is seeking.
