Orlando Brown’s Combine off to a slow start

Orlando Brown is clearly hoping teams value his game tape more than his combine testing.
Men's Wilt Chamberlain Swingman White Home Jersey: Adidas NBA #13 Golden State Warriors
Personally, I didn’t stick to my routine, my breathing routine. That’s the lowest number I’ve done. I’ll redo it at my pro day, Brown said, via Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. Keeping it real, all my numbers will be held against me. I’m an offensive tackle and all my numbers are going to be compared to the other offensive tackles. That’s just the reality of it.

Kids Ali Marpet Jersey The two teams were tied with 6-10 records and had identical strength of schedule marks, necessitating the old school approach, with Rod Woodson tossing the coin at the Combine.
Elite Mens Kwon Alexander Jersey
They’ll alternate slots in later rounds, and the 49ers Womens Tony Sanchez Jersey second-rounder which goes to the Patriots to complete the Jimmy Garoppolo trade will be 43rd overall.

Why it didn’t work out with the Rams: After moving to middle linebacker in 2016, he exploded for 136 tackles. But Ogletree didn’t fit well in Phillips’ 3-4 front.

Why it could work out with the Giants: Under contract for the next four seasons, Ogletree gives New York a leader and three-down linebacker who can call out plays and adjustments prior to the snap. A return to his 2016-level production could be in store.

Jackson didn’t help himself during his interviews with NFL teams, grading poorly with his preparation on the whiteboard, according to multiple sources. Teams have quarterbacks draw up their favorite plays against certain coverages, and they’re looking for prospects to be as thorough as possible to grade their football intelligence.

Jackson wasn’t detailed, allowing skeptics to reinforce their view that he should change positions because of his football IQ.

He has enough pluses that I still like him, said one NFL quarterbacks coach. If he was really sharp with that, then he would be a top-10 pick. It was bad, but not the worst I’ve ever seen. Not even the worst at this combine.

We’re not sure if it qualifies as a difficult one or not, but one of the moves they’ll be making has come to light. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that they will release tight end Levine Toilolo.

Chiefs make release of Tamba Hali official

The Chiefs made Tamba Hali’s release official, announcing it in a press release Monday while offering their thanks.
Elite Womens Tyler Higbee Jersey
I’m grateful I had the privilege of working with Tamba and getting to know him on a personal level, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, via the team. His love for the game is incredible, and he’s passed on that passion and his knowledge to a lot of our young ers. I can see him being a coach one of these days. He’s built a tremendous legacy here in Kansas City, and we wish him the best as he moves forward.

2. Former Patriots OT Cam Fleming inked a one-year deal with the Cowboys, the team announced. The deal is worth a max value of $3.5 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. It could also mean La’el Collins moves from right tackle to left guard in Dallas.

The Cowboys also announced Dion Jordan Womens Jersey they re-signed versatile interior OL Joe Looney.

3. The Panthers have re-signed CB LaDarius Gunter to a one-year deal, the team announced. Carolina is also?bringing back offensive lineman Amini Silatolu on a one-year contract.

4. The New York Giants added veteran depth to their defensive backfield. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Big Blue is signing safety Michael Thomas ?to a two-year deal, per a source informed of the situation. The Giants later confirmed the signing.

Via Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington, the team used the second-round tender on backup tackle Ty Nsekhe. That will pay him $2.914 million next season, and yield the team a second-round pick if he’s signed away by another team in free agency.
Kids Michael Schofield Jersey
Nsekhe started nine games the last two years, while Williams battled knee problems.

Right tackle Morgan Moses is also having offseason surgery, putting a premium on keeping Nsekhe around.

N.C. State’s Nyheim Hines only posted a 6.63 RAS, but his speed scores are some of the best in the class after running a 4.38 40-yard dash at the combine. That’s both more speed and more relative athleticism than Tarik Cohen (3.84), who used his speed to carve out a role for the Bears as a rookie last season.

Report: Saints, Drew Brees progressing toward two-year deal

Drew Brees was at the Saints’ facility on Monday for tackle Zach Strief’s retirement press conference and that gave him the opportunity to spend a little time talking about a new contract as well.

That conversation appears to have gone well. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Brees and the Saints have made significant progress toward a two-year deal that would keep Brees in New Orleans. Rapoport adds that the belief is that the deal will get to the finish line on Tuesday.

As far as how they handled it, I appreciate how [coach] Kyle [Shanahan] and [G.M.] John Lynch got me in a position where I can be successful, Kilgore said. They could have traded me anywhere but I think they did the right thing by putting me in a position that they know I can be successful, and putting me with a staff that loves the game and that are good people.

Kilgore, who saved more than $300,000 in state income taxes by being traded from a California team to a Florida team one day before earning a $2.3 million roster bonus, joins the likes of Josh Sitton, Albert Wilson, and Danny Amendola as new members of the Dolphins. Pouncey exited along with Jarvis Landry, Ndamukong Suh, Lawrence Timmons, and Julius Thomas.

Malcolm Butler expected to sign with Titans

Malcolm Butler will be leaving New England and ing for a former Patriot.
Men's Reebok Colorado Avalanche #27 Tyson Jost Premier Blue Third NHL Jersey
Butler is planning to sign with the Titans, according to multiple reports.

Even if we try to set aside his age, that’s a monstrous number. Nelson cratered in 2017 and was unable to create the same deep separation through speed and deceptive route running that helped him thrive in previous seasons. He averaged 9.1 yards per reception and finished with 482 receiving yards, his lowest single-season total since 2009.

Sure, the absence of Aaron Rodgers for much of the season didn’t help Nelson鈥攐r anyone in the Packers offense. But there was a time not long ago when Nelson had the talent to produce regardless of who was under center. Now that’s gone, and the Rodgers excuse only goes so far when Nelson’s teammate Davante Adams ended 2017 with 885 yards on 74 catches over only 14 games.

Maybe Nelson can still contribute, perhaps as a solid slot receiver at this stage in his career. But Womens Terence Newman Jersey it’s doubtful he can do enough to justify the guaranteed money in his new contract.

The Giants ranked 26th in the league in rushing last season and it’s fair to wonder how much a soon-to-be 31-year-old back who ran for 3.4 yards per carry last year will change that. Of course, it would be fair to wonder how much any running back could do if the Giants continue to field a subpar offensive line but that’s another thing for General Manager Dave Gettleman who was in Carolina with Stewart to worry about this month.

Game Youth Shawn Williams Jersey Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins are the other backs under contract for the Giants as Orleans Darkwa and Shane Vereen are both headed for free agency.

It鈥檚 the third time in four years Blount has earned a championship ring; he got two with the Patriots, in 2015 and 2017.

He provides a much-needed north-south runner to Detroit鈥檚 roster with the proven ability to convert on short-yardage situations.

Will teams try to take control of a buyer’s market at quarterback

Limited Doug Baldwin Jersey
When teams officially can commence making contractual offers to soon-to-be free agents at 12:00 p.m. ET on Monday, plenty of teams will be commencing the effort to find a veteran quarterback. With plenty of veteran quarterbacks available (and a strong quarterback class looming in the draft), teams have options. And teams may not be inclined to focus only on one option at a time.
Limited Randy Jones Jersey Youth Nike Baltimore Ravens #80 Crockett Gillmore Black Alternate Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
It could be that the teams try to take control of the overall market, by Solomon Thomas Jersey pushing for the decisions to be made quickly, forcing the process to a conclusion that compels players to take what they can get now for fear of getting less later.

Along with the ability to get back to the market next year. Along with a more favorable state income tax situation.

Sherman made his choice, and no one expects him to admit that he may have made a rash decision at an emotional time without the best advice possible. Other players, who may be under the misimpression based on the erroneous initial report that Sherman is getting a firm $13 million per year, need to realize that the commission they separately pay is worth every penny 锟斤拷 assuming the money is being paid to a good agent.

Here’s the part where some of you will bang out comments suggesting that I’m making these points in order to help out agents. Before you do, you’re absolutely right. I am.

I’m also trying to help players. Good agents make money for themselves and more money for players. In turn, this takes more money out of the coffers of billionaires who would love nothing more than to see this still-isolated quirk become a trend, and for that trend to then become the norm.O.J.

Michael would more than likely be a backup or a third down back

The team needs running back depth. That is the only reason why the Colts made this signing. He put on injured reserve during mini camp last season, and was only a Colt for about 14 days. He doesn’t have a ton of experience as a primary ball carrier.
Men's Majestic Milwaukee Brewers #12 Stephen Vogt Replica Green Salute to Service MLB Jersey
He is an effective pass catcher out of the backfield and can gain yards after the catch. Michael is also able to run well in goaline situations. He had 7 touchdowns with the Seahawks in 2016.

The Colts made this signing to see if Michael as anything to give to them. He never got a chance to show what he could do this past season because of the injury in mini camp. The injury is certainly a concern for the team moving forward, but hardly a liability based on the almost certain short-term nature of the contract.

He was just very volatile and angry and scary, she said. Someone I did not know.

GROWING up, Crowley one of three daughters of an oil executive and his wife lived in Singapore, Malaysia and Scotland. But her identity is rooted in the Lone Star State, where the family settled in Houston when she was in the fifth grade.

Embiid has joked (we think?) that he also wants to play in the NFL.

Matt Slauson Mens Jersey After we reported that 76ers minority owner Michael Rubin could buy the Carolina Panthers, Embiid asked QB Cam Newton on social media, need a wide receiver?

THE roadside dispute was one of many times Crowley saw Manziel lose his temper. When the two would argue, she said,I would have to [lock] myself in Authentic Ozzie Smith Jersey a closet or a room or a bathroom just to get him away from me. I felt like I didn’t have control over my own body. It was aggressive. Manziel would often take her cellphone away from her when the two fought and he smashed four phones, Crowley said.

It was a controlling thing. He didn’t want me to contact my parents, she said.

In November 2015, she caught Manziel in a lie. While she was in Las Vegas with friends, he told her he was staying home in Cleveland; in fact, he was partying in Austin. Confronted by Crowley over the phone, he agreed to meet her at the Austin airport so they could fly back to Ohio together but never showed. The athlete chartered a private jet and came home around 3 a.m., hours before he had to be at a Browns practice, according to Crowley. She said Manziel appeared intoxicated.

Colts release Johnathan Hankins

The Colts not only are avoiding free agents in 2018 but also are dumping free agents from 2017.

The team has announced that defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins has been released. The timing is no accident; $4.5 million of his $8 million salary for 2018 was due to become fully guaranteed as of Sunday.

Dowd said in a Saturday morning statement, “I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier.”

Dowd’s defiance was a dramatic shift for a legal team that had long pledged to cooperate fully with Mueller. The White House has responded to requests for documents, and senior officials have sat for hours of interviews with the special counsel’s investigators.

Suriano, a Paramus native and four-time undefeated state champion at Bergen Catholic High, was bidding to become Rutgers’ first individual NCAA champion since fencer Alexis Jemal won the national sabre title in 2003.

Suriano concludes his first season at Rutgers with a 25-1 record after a serious ankle injury while at Penn State last year prevented him from competing at nationals. Suriano then opted to leave the Nittany Lions and transfer home. Suriano was able to secure immediate eligibility at Rutgers and compete this season due to a Big Ten waiver after a complicated and contentious process.

More adversity then struck Suriano over the final month of this regular season when he missed four dual meets due to illness and a later-revealed lower body injury. He returned for the Big Ten Championships and won his quarterfinal round bout to secure an automatic qualifier spot for the national tournament, but then medical forfeited his semifinal round bout, ultimately finishing sixth, after re-aggravating the injury.

Ryan Braun: ‘Don’t feel comfortable at all’ in making transition to first base

Ryan Braun is willing to play first base if that helps the Milwaukee Brewers strengthen their lineup.
Youth Majestic Texas Rangers #7 Ivan Rodriguez Replica Green Salute to Service MLB Jersey
That doesn’t mean he thinks it will be an easy transition after playing the outfield for the past decade. On Saturday, Braun expressed some serious reservations about the move.

Braun, who has had back trouble during his career, said Wes Unseld Youth jersey he has to bend down and squat more while playing the infield.

The affordable Harris fits well with any type of lineup–one where you focus on tier two with guys in great spots like Kyle Lowry or Victor Oladipo, or go stars and scrubs with Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook or LeBron James with a top center and some of the nice Chicago or LA Clippers’ value. He should provide a solid floor, and we just saw his 40-fantasy point upside vs. the Lakers last week.

The Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers both enter this game playing well, with offense as each team’s primary calling card. Jokic has been a walking triple-double for the last month or two, and on Tuesday faces a Lakers team that has allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing centers over the last 10 games.

Nurkic was dominant down the stretch for the Trail Blazers last season before injury struck, and he’s in the midst of a similar run this year. If he can mature and start maintaining his focus over a full 82 games instead of just the stretch run, I think he could conservatively be a 16-and-9 player next year. By the time he reaches his athletic peak in his mid-to-late 20s, Nurkic could realistically be a 22-and-10 guy

Elite Kids Drew Stanton Jersey The Mavericks won the lottery Tuesday for the first pick in the inaugural NBA 2K League draft. Mavs Gaming will select first in the April 4 draft at Madison Square Garden, followed by Celtics Crossover Gaming and Jazz Gaming. Knicks Gaming will select ninth in the 17-team esports league.

When he got buckled back [against Oladipo], I guess he tore a meniscus. So he is out for the foreseeable future. Most likely out all season, said Stevens. It’s too bad. He’s had an incredible rookie year. He’s obviously down and he’s weighing surgical options right now and we’ll go from there.

The Celtics played the second half of Sunday’s game without four of their five opening-night starters after Kyrie Irving was forced out due to knee soreness. Irving is expected to sit out an extended stretch to combat lingering soreness, while both Al Horford (illness) and Jaylen Brown (concussion) are currently sidelined. Boston lost forward Gordon Hayward to a fractured ankle just minutes into their opening-night game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Stevens said Boston needs its youngest players to step up.

NFL free agency: Eagles rebound from disastrous 2015 class under Chip Kelly

Lanny McDonald Mens Jersey Three years tends to be long enough to evaluate most personnel moves in the NFL, whether it be coaching, drafting or free-agent signing. It has proven to be enough time, for example, to grade the signings of marquee free agents from the 2015 offseason, as well as for coaching and front-office decisions from that year.
Men's Adidas Philadelphia 76ers #0 Jerryd Bayless Authentic White Home NBA Jersey
Byron Maxwell, CB, free agent from Seahawks: Another one-and-done in Philadelphia, after a so-called six-year, $63 million deal with $25 million guaranteed. He was traded with Alonso 锟斤拷 also one-and-done, after arriving in McCoy deal 锟斤拷 to the Dolphins the next offseason. Miami cut him in the middle of the season, and he returned to Seattle after Richard Sherman tore his Achilles.

Elite Justin Peters Jersey Jeremy Maclin, WR, free agent to Chiefs: He was allowed to walk as this position was turned over to youngsters Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff, plus (yikes) Riley Cooper. Only Agholor was still there when last season began. Maclin, though, ended up being a cap casualty in Kansas City after just two seasons and may be the same in Baltimore this offseason.

Melvin turned into a complete (and sometimes shutdown) corner for the Colts before he injured his hand, making big plays on the ball and against the run. Indy would like to keep him, but he should want to see his demand given the supply is so low on big defensive backs of his ilk.

He is one of the game’s most well-rounded defensive backs with his ability to cover the slot and also cover a lot of ground like the natural free safety he is. He won’t be underrated and under-compensated much longer.

Yes, he’s getting up there in age, but yes, he finally found a groove in Seattle’s offense during his contract year, going from a slow start to 10 TDs, dominating in the J.J. Jansen Youth jersey red zone in the second half of the season. The problem is he’s not the same field-stretcher he once was.

Whitehead is a tackling machine who makes a ton of plays against the pass, too. Although he could help Patricia on the weak side, it’s more likely he finds a new home. Watch out for the Giants.

Williams coached the 2015 Pelicans to the playoffs, where as the No. 8 seed they were swept by the Warriors, the eventual NBA champions.

Game Josh Martin Jersey
He has recorded a total of 216 offensive rebounds through 42 games this season, which works out to be an average of 5.1 per contest. Adams uses those opportunities to generate over a quarter of his own offense and to create second chance opportunities for his teammates. According to NBA.com, the Thunder average 17.3 second chance points per 100 possessions with Adams on the court compared to 10.8 second chance points per 100 possessions with him on the bench this season. The former would lead the league by a large margin, and the latter would be one of the worst marks in the league.

All signs pointed to him keeping his job. But then he was fired, leading to Gentry’s hiring. For now, with this team in position to make the postseason, indications are that Womens Vernon Butler Jersey Demps is all about standing pat and putting up with whatever bad stuff Cousins brings to the party.

锟斤拷 Jason Kidd’s firing in Milwaukee has opened what is considered a plum job, mainly because most coaches would run to the Bucks to coach Giannis Antetokounmpo, the 23-year-old with future MVP written all over him. But talking to several NBA execs, they’re also quick to point out that the Bucks aren’t exactly run like the Spurs.

S Justin Reid, No. 26, Atlanta Falcons Reid wouldn’t be a bad pick here for the Falcons, but in a situation similar to that of the Titans, it feels they have more pressing needs in this spot. The Falcons could particularly benefit from improving at both the defensive tackle and guard positions.

McShay’s reasoning with Reid here makes sense though, while also acknowledging this pick is a bit of a reach. Guard is a definite need for Atlanta, but a position I believe the Falcons will address in free agency, he wrote. This might be a bit of a reach, but I really like Reid’s tape and he backed it up with a great combine workout (4.40 40 at 6-1, 204, along with 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump and 36.5-inch vertical jump). I think he’s worthy of a top-40 selection.
