Chandler Jones gets ready to give a handoff Saturday during his kids’ camp in Tempe.

Chandler Jones stood in front of the group of kids in the Cardinals’ practice bubble Saturday Authentic Michael Taylor Jersey morning, talking a little bit about himself and his career, when he was asked about his franchise-record 17 sacks.

I want more, the Cardinals’ defensive end said.

It isn’t that Jones is predicting another record-setting season, necessarily. It’s the search for motivation.

(He said) ‘People don’t really say anything.’ I’m like, ‘Who? Recognition from who?’ Jones said. I don’t really care. I try to come out and do my job. If you worry your whole life about your ratings and who, you’ll never go anywhere.

Jones reiterated his embrace of playing in a 4-3 defense as an end. He weighs about 275 pounds right now, although he noted I’m not really as strict with my diet as I should be this time of year and he plans on reporting to training camp around 260 or 265 pounds.

The heavier weight was just fine for this camp and these kids, however.

After Larry Fitzgerald, the Cardinals are looking for receiving options. The top two options prior to Butler signing were speedy J.J. Nelson and the inexperienced Chad Williams, who played little as a rookie in 2017.

The other receivers on the roster are Carlton Agudosi, Rashad Ross and Cobi Hamilton, who was recently claimed on waivers from the Texans.

I think we are trying to improve each area of our football team, coach Steve Wilks said at the recent NFL owners meetings. Most importantly, we did lose some guys in the receiving corps, and that’s something we have talked about in free agency, as well as address in the draft.

I think guys can come in and perform and play at a high level. I think it’s what situation they come into and what you put on them.

Butler, 28, had 15 receptions for 317 yards and three touchdowns in 2017, leading the NFL (among players with at least 15 catches) Alex Cappa Jersey with his 21.1-yards-per-catch average.

I’m another big body at receiver that can stretch the defense, and take a short play and make it a big one, Butler said. I hustle, I grind.

I always thought Cleveland should’ve drafted Darnold #1 and signed Josh McCown to mentor him.

The Browns team is built for a QB like Taylor (well it’s built for Mayfield but him and Taylor are nearly identical physically which is mostly likely why they have both). It doesn’t surprise me that Taylor is getting glowing reviews since he has a team that actually values his skill set and put talent around him based on it. It’s very similar to the Chiefs when they acquired Alex Smith from the 49ers.

Tyrod’s not a bad quarterback at all. Now he’s not a top 16 quarterback, but he owned the most accurate deep ball in the NFL in 2016, spearheaded a Bills team who had no receivers to the playoffs in 2017 and has had success when he had weapons — which is almost never. A lot of bad football opinions and Baker is getting a crash course from a classy guy and competent signal-caller.

Before Watson joined the team, the Texans ‘ quarterback position turned into a revolving door from 2014 to 2016, as Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates, Brian Hoyer, Brandon Weeden, Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage either started at least one game or attempted a pass during that span.

But with Watson potentially ready to return by training camp, the Texans have a constant presence at the all-important quarterback position.

Sources say the Phillies are planning to be big players for Machado as a free agent, and sources say they have plenty of money to spend, as their revenues still far outstrip their expenses even after the free agent signings of former Machado teammate Jake Arrieta and Carlos Santana over the winter.

It isn’t a matter of whether we have the money. The question is, ‘Will they come?’ one Phillies person said.

Zook was not one of the special teams coaches who attended the league meetings to exchange ideas with owners and fellow coaches. However, Zook said he participated in a conference call in which a number of potential solutions were discussed. He also spent time with Murphy and Maurice Drayton, the Packers’ assistant special teams coach, to review film and talk through the Uchenna Nwosu Jersey issues so Murphy could use their feedback during meetings with the competition committee, of which Murphy is a member.

By this time next year, owners will have enough data from the 2018 season to understand just how risky kickoffs are across the league. If things go well and this year’s adaptions actually reduce the number of serious injuries, then the Tyler Graovac Jersey idea that kickoffs should be removed from football will be tabled — at least for a while.

But if things go poorly, and injury statistics don’t improve, perhaps the kickoff will be erased altogether, just as Murphy suggested was possible.

Cubs face tough stretch without key members of their bullpen

The Chicago Cubs could be in for an up-and-down stretch until the calendar turns as they play with a makeshift bullpen and face a less-than-favorable schedule. Flying high after winning two of three from the Los Angeles Dodgers, they came back down to earth Thursday night, losing to the lowly Cincinnati Reds when reliever Randy Rosario gave up a go-ahead grand slam to Jesse Winker in the sixth inning after starter Kyle Hendricks walked in a run and was pulled.

That’s going to happen sometimes, Rosario said after the 6-2 loss. I’m going to learn from this today. … I felt a little weaker (less sharp) today.

There should be no blame directed toward Rosario, as he entered the game with the bases loaded and no margin for error. Plus, he’s been pitching over his pay grade as a winter waiver pickup from the Minnesota Twins, sporting a 0.60 ERA coming into the night while stranding 10 of 10 inherited runners.

They just have to be ready because I’m not going to lose the game in the sixth or the seventh inning, if that’s a critical moment, by holding someone back, Maddon said.

Don’t get a strikeout. Don’t get a strikeout, Aguilar said about digging in against Norris. That’s why I was kind of overaggressive, I think. I got lucky to hit that pitch.

Norris, speaking in front of his locker in the subdued Cardinals clubhouse, owned up to the mistake.

I yanked one pitch, and he hit it, Norris said. That’s the game.

It was another tough loss for the Cardinals, who have lost nine of the last 12.

Watching them walk us off, that’s hard, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Jack did everything he could possibly do.

Corey Knebel (1-0) pitched the ninth for the NL Central leaders.

With one out in the seventh, Aguilar drove an 83 mph slider from Flaherty into the Brewers’ bullpen in left, where reliever Jeremy Jeffress caught the ball on the fly. A woman who was knitting — it appeared to be crochet, actually — in the front row behind home plate barely flinched as Aguilar connected.

He got that ball almost off the ground, catcher Yadier Molina said. We’ve got to give him some credit.

Aguilar tipped his cap to Flaherty.

The Bears also have 75-1 odds.

Then there’s this: The Seahawks, one of the best teams of the past six years, have 50-1 odds. While the Seahawks are hardly favorites to win it all, they seem like a MUCH better bet to climb the mountain than a team that hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2002 — and that has Jack Youngblood Youth Jersey won only one game in the past two seasons.

At no time, Mara said, did he see any sign of duress from Gettleman during the tireless work leading up one of the most highly scrutinized drafts in franchise history, which produced running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick.

Eli Manning’s advice for Odell Beckham amid contract ‘hassle’

According to Shurmur, Beckham is cleared to practice, and didn’t note any current restrictions, but Beckham didn’t participate in team drills Tuesday. Shurmur was noncommittal when asked if Beckham could return to team drills this week, but it is possible the receiver is held out from them until training camp begins in late July.

Despite the 14-point deficit, Hamilton Jack Eichel Authentic Jersey led the game entering the fourth quarter, 11-9. Calgary outscored Hamilton in the fourth quarter, 19-3. If Hamilton finds itself significantly behind at an earlier stage of a given game, maybe Manziel will get a chance to enter the game and turn things around.

Hamilton plays at Edmonton on Friday night. The following Friday, Hamilton will make its home opener, against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Waithe said studios are eager to buy what she has to sell, because she’s making art from her personal experience.

What I have to sell is my vulnerability, my truth, my brokenness, Waithe said. And I’m using that to entertain the world.

She was joined in the discussion by her friend, Justin Simien, creator of Dear White People, former NFL Player turned producer Nnamdi Asomugha of Iam21 Entertainment (Crown Heights, Beasts of No Nation), Dan Bucatinsky, Partner, Is Or Isn’t Entertainment (The Comeback) and Mel Eslyn, president of Duplass Brothers Productions (Outside In).

Cole Beasley’s route tree has expanded as he seeks bounce-back season

Cole Beasley led the Cowboys in catches and yards in 2016. Dez Bryant might have been the team’s No. 1 receiver in name that season, but Beasley was Dak Prescott’s favorite target.

But he doesn’t assume anything and he takes it from the basics all the way to the advanced stuff, starting from the bottom.

Little, 29, has played 54 games with 42 starts. He has made 161 catches for 1,890 yards and eight touchdowns in his career.

He continues to avoid specifics about when he’ll walk away, keeping his commitment to play open ended.

As long as I’m still loving it, Brady said. As long as I’m loving the training and the preparation and willing to make the commitment. But it’s also, I think what I alluded to a lot in the [Tom vs. Time] docu-series, there’s other things happening in my life, too. I do have kids that I love, and I don’t want to be a dad that’s not there, driving my kids to their games my kids have brought a Mitchell Schwartz Youth Jersey great perspective in my life. Kids just want the attention. You better be there. And be available to them.

Despite plenty of speculation regarding the reasons for Brady’s absence from voluntary offseason workouts in 2018, the simplest explanation could be that his family has demanded more of his attention, prompting him to choose spending time with them over non-mandatory work days. And that could be part of the complex compromise that will come to characterize the latter days of Brady’s Hall of Fame career.

Luck admitted that, during his still-ongoing rehab, he had a little mental block to throwing a regulation football.

As explained on Wednesday’s PFT Live, Luck isn’t a golfer who can simply avoid Phil Esposito Jersey using a club that’s giving him trouble. He’s got one tool in the kit, a full-sized NFL football bearing the autograph of the Commissioner and the words The Duke. Any NFL quarterback who ever has a little mental block when it comes to throwing a regulation NFL football has a very real and profound problem.

And even though Luck has secretly thrown The Duke with his new head coach, Luck’s Tuesday appearance on the practice field included not a regulation-sized ball but a small high-school version of the same thing. And no one seems to be troubled by that.

Shareholders for the two companies have started receiving literature detailing the deal.

Disney and Fox stockholders will vote on the deal at special meetings on July 10.
Adidas NHL Men's Robby Fabbri Royal Blue Home Premier Jersey - #15 St. Louis Blues
Under the terms of the deal, Fox, officially dubbed 21st Century Fox, Inc., will spin off some of its properties into a new company, called, appropriately enough, New Fox.

Bottom line: if the Michael Carter-Williams Jersey Fox-Disney merger is approved, YES Network will be owned by the same company which owns the ESPN empire.

In a conference call Monday with shareholders, CEO Brian Roberts told investors, As we discussed during our recent conference calls and webcast, opportunities arise for us to create more value for our shareholders like we did with NBCUniversal. Our current offer for Sky as well as our announcement last month that we’re also considering and are in advance stages of repairing an offer for the businesses that Fox is selling, are perfect examples of this.

The MMQB’s Albert Breer since has reported that Edelman’s failed test was triggered by a substance that wasn’t immediately recognizable, and Golic made Authentic Colton Parayko Jersey clear Tuesday on ESPN’s Golic and Wingo that he has a huge problem with the way the league is handling the situation. Edelman missed all of last season after tearing his ACL during a preseason game.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of people trekked to Monmouth Park to place bets. The track had become the face of the state’s sports betting battle, having spent millions on the case and to prepare a sports-betting parlor.

Former state Sen. Raymond Lesniak, the man who helped lead the fight for years, was on hand — decked in a New York Giants hat and France soccer jersey. The World Cup started Thursday.

It was a long fight, with the odds against us, Lesniak, a Union County Democrat, told the crowd. But New Jersey spirit and determination prevailed.

Murphy had a similar message.

Jamaal Charles to visit New Orleans Saints this week

Even with second-year standout Alvin Kamara and a host of young tailbacks on the roster, the Saints are interested in adding a veteran following the news of Mark Ingram ‘s four-game suspension to open the 2018 season.

With four Pro Bowl nods under his belt and the highest era-adjusted yards per carry in NFL history, Charles has earned one more opportunity to show that he can still help a Super Bowl contender.

Should one or both of the veterans sign, they would ostensibly compete with Daniel Lasco, Jonathan Williams, Trey Edmunds and sixth-round rookie Boston Scott for a complementary role alongside Kamara until Ingram returns in October.

Adam Schefter and Field Yates of ESPN reported the news Friday and noted the ban is in the appeal process.

Edelman missed the entire 2017 season after suffering a torn ACL during the preseason.

The 32-year-old Kent State product said Tuesday his rehab has been good and said the recovery is one of those things where each step you take, you’re prepared for that step.

Any time you get to go out and see the fellas, play with them, talk with them, be in the huddle and look at guys, and participate in drills, that’s what you play the game for ultimately, he told reporters. It was tough to watch it on the sidelines last year. To come out here and do little things, strap on the helmet, it put some perspective on how lucky you are to get to play the game.

Edelman made 98 catches for 1,106 yards and three touchdowns while playing all 16 games in 2016. He’s tallied 425 receptions for 4,540 yards and 24 scores since the Pats selected the converted quarterback in the seventh round of the 2009 draft.

Detroit drafts Auburn RHP Mize with No. 1 pick

Casey Mize went from undrafted three years ago all the way to No. 1.
Jordy Nelson Youth Elite Navy Blue Jersey: Nike NFL Green Bay Packers Vapor Untouchable Alternate #87
Mize walked a career-high four batters (he had allowed 12 walks all season entering Saturday’s game), hit another and gave up a season-high six runs in only five innings.

I didn’t throw a lot of strikes, and I walked four guys, and I hit one, Mize said. I don’t know when the last time was I walked four guys. I don’t know. I just couldn’t get ahead, couldn’t stay in the strike zone. … I don’t know. I was leaving a bunch of stuff up, and they were putting some good swings on balls.

Brewers: First place in the NL Central is on the line as the Cubs visit Milwaukee for a three-game series. RHP Junior Guerra (3-4, 2.83 ERA) starts Monday night against Chicago LHP Jose Quintana (6-4, 4.20).

Hamilton threw out two runners, then made outstanding catches against the wall in the eighth and ninth innings. He also tripled and scored twice.

It’s Ben Gedeon Jersey all about me catching the balls if I get a chance to, Hamilton said. Like I tell the pitchers, if it’s anywhere inside the park, if I can get to it, I’m going to make an effort to get to it.

The Cardinals’ overall winning streak against Cincinnati was their longest since the 1930-1931 seasons. The Reds had lost 11 straight home games to St. Louis.

Of course, with the Yankees on pace for 113 wins, it’s easy to forget they got off to a rocky start. They were 9-9 before reeling off a 17-1 streak. An anticipated Luis Severino-Chris Sale showdown turned into a 14-1 rout for the Red Sox, the much-vaunted bullpen had blown a couple of leads, and Giancarlo Stanton was striking out in droves:

Boone wasn’t about to panic. He kept Brett Gardner in the leadoff spot even after a slow start. He has kept Aaron Judge in the 2-hole all season because that’s where he wants Judge to hit. Stanton has hit third or fourth all season (with one A.J. Green Authentic Jersey start in the No. 2 slot the other day when Judge got a day off) as Boone wisely ignored calls to move him down in the order.

Giants’ Zak DeOssie loses 2 Super Bowl rings … after leaving them on top of his car

Many people have had that embarrassing moment when they realize they left something on top of their car before driving away. Maybe it was a cup of coffee or something Stacy McGee Jersey else to shrug off. Or maybe it was something worse — a smartphone, or a wallet.
Nike Steve Grogan Ash One Color - New England Patriots NFL #14 Pullover Hoodie
Nothing will ever replace the original, DeOssie said. These rings are near and dear to my heart and it was a sad, sad realization that I haphazardly misplaced them.

I’ll be damn sure to never do that again, but to walk away from the situation empty-handed seems even more sad. I’m definitely getting a new one made, and hopefully over time I can enjoy it just as much as I did the first one.

The drug charges against the free-agent safety stemming from his arrest last year have been dropped, according to Hillsborough County court records.

Ward had faced a felony count of possession of marijuana and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Ward was initially arrested Oct. 25 while playing with the Buccaneers. Although he was not Tevin Coleman Jersey home at the time, a woman allowed police to enter his apartment when they responded to an alarm and claimed the 99.9 grams of marijuana seen in plain view belonged to Ward.

The woman, identified in the report as Ciera Woody, later claimed the marijuana was hers and faced the same felony possession charge.

Ward was then arrested Jan. 3 on a warrant for failure to appear in court.

Josh Doctson feels he’s rediscovered his old TCU self

The Washington Redskins ‘ offense underwent a remix this offseason, but one expectation remains the same: Josh Doctson must step up.
Limited John Sullivan Youth Road White Nike Jersey - #65 NFL Los Angeles Rams Vapor Untouchable
Eddie Robinson Jersey The former No. 22 overall pick saw his rookie season all but washed away due to injury. Last season, Doctson showed brief flashes of uber potential but mostly was a frustrating amalgam of inconsistency.

Healthy for a full offseason, Doctson believes he’s finally settling in to be the player the Redskins used a first-round pick to snag.

At some point after that, Andrew Luck will begin throwing as he begins his road back to the field after shoulder surgery. And at any time, we should be ready for a dramatic turn in Colin Kaepernick ‘s collusion lawsuit鈥攈is lawyer hinted at having a knowledgeable witness on his side.

Friday morning,聽Baffert arrived at the track at 5 a.m. He was greeted by a light drizzle that was more omen than a hopeful forecast. He stood in front of stall 28, relaxed and confident, as well as he should be. The Derby, the race he most feared for his colt, was safely behind him.

I’d rather win the Derby and lose the other two than have it happen the other way around, he said.

Cliff and Kam are going to have a hard time playing football again,Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said at the time both players were ruled out for the year. The jury’s not out on that yet. They’re going to decide that themselves. But it’s going to be very difficult for those guys to come back and play again. That’s just an indication of the kinds of things that we’re going to be dealing with (this offseason).While it looks unlikely that Avril will be back on the field anytime soon, Chancellor seems to have just a bit more hope. He is, however, realistic about his chances. If my body says I can play, I’m playing,Chancellor said this week, per WVEC-TV. If my body says don’t play, I’m not playing. I’ll listen. I’m a very good listener.
