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.

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, 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.

Toews scores 9 seconds into OT, Blackhawks edge Avs 2-1

Avalanche C Colin Wilson missed his second game after suffering a head injury against Minnesota last Friday. … Earlier on Tuesday, the Blackhawks signed Gustafsson to a two-year contract extension and F Tyler Sikura to a one-year contract for 2018-19.

“We find a way to win a game,” Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. “I’ll be honest with you. As a coach, you get your schedule in July and you look at it and I call them ‘we’re screwed here, those type of games.’ That’s one of them I have circled because it is a tough turnaround coming off a West Coast trip and coming right back and play. I’m thrilled for the guys to find a way.”

The only consolation for Andersen this time was he couldn’t be faulted on Buffalo’s first four goals, all of which were set up by fortunate bounces.

The Sabres led 2-0 after Reinhart and Pominville deflected in shots from the right point by Rasmus Ristolainen. Girgensons put Buffalo up 3-2 when Reinhart’s shot from a bad angle banked in off his skate.

The Sabres received yet another break in going up 4-2 when Toronto defenseman Ron Hainsey’s clearing attempt struck referee Kendrick Nicholson’s skate. The puck caromed directly to O’Reilly, who scored from the right circle.

The 19-year-old star had been the youngest ever with three hat tricks — getting there at 18 years, 302 days — but it had been over a year since his last three-goal game. He joins Jimmy Carson and Dale Hawerchuk as the only players with four hat tricks before turning 20.

Bouwmeester missed the first 21 games of season with a broken left ankle. He also missed nine games in December with an undisclosed injury and one in January for the birth of a child. He had two goals and five assists in 35 games.

“We know he was playing on borrowed time, I would say,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. “We were hoping he was going to get through the season, but we knew there was really only so much life left in that hip of his. Very safe to say he gave us absolutely everything he had.”

Upshall logged seven goals and 11 assists in 61 games and provided a gritty edge.

“Losing those two guys is big. Big parts of our room, but they’ll be around pushing us from behind the scenes,” said winger Alexander Steen, who has two goals and four assists in a three-game points streak in San Jose.packers_162

Celtics to sign free agent C Greg Monroe, report says

Elite Shaq Thompson Jersey
The Celtics plan to sign Greg Monroe when the big man clears waivers Friday evening, reported Friday.
Elite Coby Fleener Jersey Men's Limited Lynn Swann Gold/Black Jersey: Alternate #88 NFL Pittsburgh Steelers Throwback Nike 80th Anniversary
Monroe, bought out by the Suns earlier this week, offers a solution to one of the Celtics’ biggest problems: alleviating some of the stress of losing Gordon Hayward to injury.

Boston can use its $8.4 million disabled player exception it received with Hayward’s injury.

The run won an ESPY, earned Jack a meeting with President Barack Obama and landed him as the grand marshal in the 2013 Nebraska homecoming parade. It also launched a fundraising effort, boosted by the Hoffmans’ continued relationship with Burkhead and the Nebraska football program, that has enabled the Team Jack Foundation to raise more than $5 million for pediatric brain cancer research and treatment.

Last month, the foundation hosted its fifth annual gala for a crowd of 750 donors that featured more than two dozen current and former Nebraska players, including Burkhead, who recently completed his fifth NFL season and first with the Patriots.

It is actually very flattering that I’m sitting here at 33 and in my 15th year and teams or guys — I don’t want to say teams, because that becomes tampering — but people in their respective city want me to play for them, he said. That’s cool I think. That’s dope.

None of this explicitly states James will opt out of his deal and sign with the 76ers, but it has to get fans in Philly excited. The team is loaded with young talent featuring Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid Scottie Pippen Jersey and even No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz (if he can recover from whatever is wrong with him).

The Sixers have the cap space to sign James if they make a few moves first. The projected salary cap for next season is $101 million, although that number could change to become larger. Even if it remains, with the luxury tax, the Sixers can easily make this happen.

The easy top target here is the Cowboys’ Anthony Hitchens, who had Eberflus as his position coach last season.

Elite Duron Harmon Jersey This is the other big change to the defensive front seven. Inside linebacker was a consistent need in the 3-4; the difference now is the Colts need someone at the position who’s rangier and capable of covering as well as run-stopping. Jon Bostic is a free agent and unlikely to be re-signed for the new scheme.
Elite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Jersey Womens Youth Bears Jerseys
There’s already a trust factor in Hitchens being well-rounded and doing everything asked of him. It will shocking if Indianapolis does not emerge as the front-runner for his services.

The Lions’ Tahir Whitehead also would be a strong get at a higher price. On the cheaper side, the Bills’ Preston Brown needs to be considered. The Eagles’ Nigel Bradham is an excellent cover man and has swung well from inside to outside, so a Reich reunion can’t be ruled out. Older versatile options are the Jaguars’ Paul Posluzny and the Raiders’ NaVorro Bowman.

In addition to showing raw explosiveness, this drill displays a prospect’s hip flexibility and balance. The ability to generate power from the lower half and through the hips is crucial for offensive linemen (especially centers) and defensive linemen, because it shows they can get ample hip flexion and rise from their stance with force.

Additionally — and this is true for all prospects — the landing of the broad jump requires body control and balance, giving prospects who can explode from a stand-still with control a distinct advantage.

Since the Broncos replaced Julius Thomas with Owen Daniels for the latter’s final NFL season in 2015, they’ve struggled to find either steady blocking or Brett Pesce Jersey receiving from this position with a lot of injuries hurting them. It led to them falling down to the league’s worst red-zone offense in 2017. Virgil Green, a once-reliable blocker who has faded, is unlikely to be re-signed as a free agent who turns 30 in August.

Jeff Heuerman hasn’t been able to stay healthy and becomes a free agent in 2019. The team is hoping Jake Butt, a second-year fifth-rounder who had his rookie season wiped out by a knee injury, can contribute something.

Those of you who have read this article all season know the format by now: The Forecaster chart is in the middle of the story, while the last section of narrative shows teams that are rated especially high or especially low on the Player Rater, and categorizes the teams as likely to contain stream or fade candidates. Generally, teams with Forecaster ratings of 8 and above are mined as potential schedule-based streamers, and a few names of interest are chosen.

This marked the first time Wilson has played in a baseball game since 2011, when he was in the Colorado Rockies organization.

Wilson, 29, spent two seasons in the Colorado Rockies’ organization, hitting .229 between 2010 and 2011, the year before the Seahawks drafted him in the third round. He appeared at spring training with the Texas Rangers after they acquired him in the 2013 Rule 5 draft. Texas traded his rights last month to the Yankees last month, a team that Wilson admired growing up and the favorite team of his late father.

The Bears’ total price for one season of Mike Glennon will be $18.5 million when he is officially released when the new league year starts on March 14. That breaks down to:

He went 0-for-5 in that game for the Asheville Tourists, facing current Yankees reliever Chasen Shreve in his final at-bat.

This has been a good week at the plate for Wilson, who has homered regularly in batting practice sessions. He hit six home runs during his first session — one that put him in a group with Judge and Stanton, the reigning American League and National League home run champions.

NFL’s national anthem stance not worthy of chatter during players meeting at Combine

“It’s one of those things where it’s a trade-off, right?” Winston said. “The Thursday night package drives quite a bit of revenue. But at the same time, health and safety has to be prominent and important and something you don’t really want to trade off for money.”

As for Winston himself, he heads toward free agency in March hoping to play a 13th NFL season. The 34-year-old has spent the past four years primarily as a Bengals backup after starting for Houston (2006-11), Kansas City (2012) and Arizona (2013).

Maybe he gets on the Devils’ top power play, but with a resume of zero power-play goals over the last two seasons, that’s no guarantee. (But if the Devils were hoping for more scoring when their opponent pulls the goalie, they’ve made the right move. Grabner tied for the NHL lead last season with four empty-net goals and already has a whopping seven this season, two shy of the NHL record).

In hopes of staying ahead of the curve, I wanted to take one last look at the possible fantasy implications, good or bad, for top names that are on most NHL analysts’ lists of players likely to move.

No. If there’s movement before the ball is secured and the ball touches the ground, it’s not a catch. But how much movement is too much? Well, that’s purely subjective. Maybe the ball jostles around a little, but the receiver still has his hands securely under it, it never touches the ground, and then he locks it up. That’s a catch.

Allow Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald to demonstrate. Fitzgerald and Orlando Scandrick are equally entitled to this ball. Fitz saves it from being intercepted and grabs it before it hits the ground. Note how he gets his left hand under the ball and then secures it to his body.

“When we’re between these lines, we got to play for one another and that’s all that matters,” Thompson said. “I don’t care if X don’t like X off the court. I really don’t give a s—. As long as you’re on the court playing hard and playing for each other, that’s all that matters to me. We don’t got to talk to each other off the court. As long as we talk on the court, on the defensive end, that’s all that matters to me. You go to work every day and you might not like a guy. You might not like the guy you work with. So be it.”
