Plaxico Burress on Odell Beckham Jersey contract: Don’t have him disgruntled

Plaxico Burress may have just been projecting based on his own experience, but at least he understands the situation.

The former Giants wide receiver urged the team to do what it takes to sign wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to a contract extension now, to avoid the kinds of things that might have been on his mind a decade ago.

Everybody in the world knows the guy [Beckham] needs to be rewarded, Burress told Ryan Dunleavy of It’s only a matter of time. Don’t have him disgruntled going Womens Matt Kalil Jersey into the season, and then you lose him. Why even put yourself in that position?

Beckham’s entering the final year of his rookie deal. And there are plenty of people trying to spend the Giants’ money for them, including former quarterback Phil Simms.

Enter Keyshawn Johnson, a former Buccaneers receiver who at one point was so disruptive he was sent home for the rest of the season with pay, has chimed in, aggressively.

When I saw [the Jameis report] I thought, ‘Man, you just can’t stay out of trouble,’ Johnson said on KSPN 710, via And there’s something, and I’m not a doctor, nor do I plan on being, but there’s something wrong with you. If this is in fact true, the fact that you keep coming up with some type of sexual behavioral problems towards women, there’s something wrong mentally. I don’t care what anyone says. There’s something wrong.

The Buccaneers have yet to say or do anything to suggest that their opinion Patrick DiMarco Jersey about Winston has changed. That could change if/when the NFL issues a suspension letter to Winston listing the various things that the NFL has concluded that he did. If a local or national groundswell ever emerges against Winston, the Buccaneers will at least have to consider that factor when making decisions about Winston.

Raiders add fullback Ryan Yuracheck Jersey

The Raiders signed someone, and for a change, he’s young.

The team announced the signing of fullback Ryan Yurachek.

Carlson, who would have been an unrestricted free agent on July 1, picked the right time to have a career season and lead all NHL Vince Carter Youth Jersey defensemen in scoring. In playing all 82 games during the regular season, he posted career highs in goals (15), assists (53), points (68), ice time (24:47) and power play assists (28). The production continued in the playoffs with five goals and 20 points as the Capitals claimed the 2018 Stanley Cup. He would finish fifth in the Norris Trophy voting.

Jackson will compete with Justin Reid, the team’s third-round pick, for the starting job.

Dobson said he wants to use the summer to get stronger and increase his chances of making the team out of Authentic Marcus Maye Jersey training camp in September.

As a 15-year-old, Dobson left his home in Prince Edward Island to spend a year with the Red Bull Salzburg academy. There hs impressed against older competition and furthered his development in a professional setting.

I think that year at Red Bull showed him how hard he had to work to get to where he wanted to be, said former NHLer Brian Savage, who served as a Red Bull scout.

Both players were tabbed to go a little higher than they did in many mock drafts, but as Wahlstrom noted, it doesn’t matter where you’re selected.

You always want to be the best and picked as high as possible, he said. But it’s the draft and you get picked and then after that you have to focus on what you do to make the team.

NFL rumors: Ex-Cowboy Dez Bryant Jersey to Patriots after Julian Edelman PED suspension?

Big name, big team, big stakes.
#44 Nike George Gervin Women's Ash NBA - Backer San Antonio Spurs Pullover Hoodie
Yes, it’s unlikely. But don’t rule it out. We’ve seen Patriots coach Bill Belichick take on Womens Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey the troubled, out-of-sorts former star again and again throughout his Richard Jefferson Jersey tenure. Sometimes (Randy Moss, Corey Dillon) it works. Other times (Albert Haynesworth) it doesn’t. But if Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady believe there’s still gas left in Bryant’s tank, it makes sense.

Bryant, 29, reeled in 69 catches for 838 yards last season in Dallas. His 12.1 yards per carry represented his worst figure since Bryant entered the NFL in 2010. Over the last three seasons, Bryant has only accounted for 20 receiving touchdowns. In 2015, Bryant led the NFL with 16 touchdown catches.

The Devils went 1-3-0 against the Capitals during the 2017-18 season, including a 1-1-0 record at home. The Devils won a 4-3 game in overtime when Taylor Hall scored the winning goal in the extra frame.

The Capitals open their season at home on Oct. 3, when they host the Boston Bruins.

The Devils only play one preseason game at Prudential Center, and it’s their first game on the schedule. They will host the Rangers at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 17. The Devils are also playing a split-squad game on the road against the Montreal Canadiens that night.

The full NHL regular-season schedule will be released on Thursday.

Giants’ Saquon Barkley has NFL’s top-selling jersey, edging Eagles, Cowboys stars

NFL defenders might soon have a hard time getting their hands on the elusive Saquon Barkley.

Ronald Acuña Jr. injury update: Braves rookie leaves game with left leg injury

Braves outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. left Sunday’s game against the Red Sox with an apparent leg injury.

The injury occurred while Acuña was attempting to beat out a ground ball to shortstop in the top of the seventh inning. He extended his leg towards first base and landed awkwardly before falling. Acuña was credited with an infield single on the play.

In addition, Rasmus made an outstanding throw from right field to the plate, nailing Wilmer Difo on a tag-up play in the seventh inning with the score tied.

Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman (back) will next pitch for Class A Delmarva after allowing three runs in two innings for lower Class A Aberdeen on Wednesday night.

Nationals: RHP Brandon Kintzler (flexor strain) is close to coming off the DL. Martinez hopes the reliever can pitch an inning on a rehabilitation assignment before being is activated. … Martinez said RHP Jeremy Hellickson (right hamstring strain) will soon go on a rehab assignment and pitch five or six innings.

Orioles: Alex Cobb (2-9, 7.14 ERA) helps Baltimore open a three-game series on the road Friday night against the Braves, who lead the NL East.

Nationals: Tanner Roark (3-7, 3.87) takes the mound in the opener of a three-game set against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies, who entered play Thursday in a second-place tie with Washington.

If there are any real drawbacks to Mize as a prospect, they lie in his medical history and his relatively low ceiling.

Though he’s never had major surgery on his right arm, Mize was shut down last summer for what was described as arm fatigue, leading some scouts to question how well he would hold up over the course of a major league season.

There is also the issue of how much better an organization could expect Mize to get as a player after signing him. Unlike other pitchers in the draft, Mize has already filled out physically and likely would not add any velocity with further weight gain. The question for teams considering Mize in the top few picks of the draft is whether they feel that his current skill set is good enough to get batters out in the big leagues.

Relatively speaking, the concerns about Mize’s health and lack of further development are small compared to everything he brings to the table for whichever team drafts him. Because of his dominance in one of the most talented and competitive conferences in the country, Mize is a low-risk pick at the top of the draft, which is why it is likely the Detroit Tigers will take him first overall on June 4.

Patriots extend fullback James Develin Jersey

At least one Patriot is having fun today.
Matt Paradis Men's Elite Orange Jersey: Nike NFL Denver Broncos Rush Vapor Untouchable #61
According to Jeff John Sullivan Jersey Howe of The Athletic, the Patriots have extended fullback James Develin’s contract.

Develin’s deal was set to expire after this season, but his two-year deal is worth $3.8 million, with a $600,000 signing bonus.

He began as a member of the Patriots practice squad in 2012, but slowly developed into the kind of role player Bill Belichick loves. Develin made the Pro Bowl last year.

Toward the end of his deployment, he learned West Point fulfills a Peyton Manning Womens Jersey certain quota of enlisted soldiers every year. Despite his growing disillusionment with the military, he applied and got in.

I was still idealistic, he said. I figured maybe I could change things from inside.

Bugel spent 27 of 32 NFL seasons as an assistant coach and is best known for building Washington’s famous Hogs offensive line. He coached in three Super Bowls.

Bugel was offensive coordinator (1981-82) and assistant head coach/offense (1983-89) in Washington. He was the Cardinals head coach from 1990-93, the Raiders assistant head coach/offense from 1995-96 and the Raiders head coach in 1997. He coached the Chargers offensive line from 1998-2001 before returning to Washington from 2004-09 as an assistant. He retired after the 2009 season.

In the lawsuit, Wilkins is said to have routinely worked in excess of 40 hours per workweek while performing her cheerleading duties.

The suit also claimed the Cowboys mistreated their cheerleaders by paying them less than the male mascot and pushing them to promote the team on their social media accounts without compensation. Instead, the posts gave the Cowboys organization a financial boost, according to the suit.

The third-round pick out of Georgia is looking to nail down a role in the Giants’ new-look 3-4 defense, and has utilized his more experienced teammates in his early days with the team.

Jeurys Familia Jersey injury update: Mets closer set to return from DL Sunday

The Mets will soon have their closer back.
Men's Nike Elite Doug Williams Washington Redskins Gold Jersey: NFL Rush Vapor Untouchable #17
New York is planning to activate Jeurys Familia from the disabled list Sunday, according to a report from the New York Post. Familia was originally placed on the DL June 8 with right shoulder soreness.

The Reds, for example, drafted hometown prep star Barry Larkin in the second round in 1982, but he chose to attend Michigan. So Cincinnati selected him again in the first round in 1985, and this time he signed. Stories like that abound in draft history. The Orioles drafted Mike Mussina twice. Same for Jorge Posada (twice by the Yankees), Craig Kimbrel (twice by the Braves), Tim Hudson (twice by the A’s) and Chuck Finley (twice by the Kurt Warner Youth Jersey Angels), to name a few.

According to, deputies said Brown hid in a neighbor’s yard and waited for the thieves to strike again after reports surfaced of stolen mail. Brown caught two men — one of them a 15-year-old — Wednesday and held them at gunpoint until officers arrived.

Information was not immediately released on the charges that the suspects may face, and Mike Fisher Jersey they were not identified in initial media reports.

Over Brown’s 19-year MLB career, he spent time with the Rangers, Orioles, Marlins, Padres, Dodgers and Yankees. He won 211 games, becoming a six-time All-Star. He retired in 2005 with the Yankees at age 41.

The Seahawks in 2017 were not a playoff team for the first time in six seasons.

That failure led right into a 2018 offseason of change.

Still, they sent him out to warm up to start the fifth, but Scioscia said they could tell from his warmups that it was bothering him.

The 34-year-old veteran has hit just.139 and registered a.205 on-base percentage in 42 games for New York this season. The Mets have considered releasing Reyes but hope he will hold a retirement news conference instead, according to a report from SNY.

Terrell Owens makes a pitch to the 49ers

Dez Bryant isn’t the only free-agent receiver who would like to play for the 49ers.

Soon-to-be Hall of Fame wideout Terrell Owens wants to return to the team that drafted him more than two decades ago. As noted by Eric Ting of, a congratulatory tweet from 49ers G.M. John Lynch to Owens regarding his work with the Alzheimer’s Association prompted an effort by Owens to return to action with the 49ers.

The difference between Wentz and the average quarterback on third down was drastic, which made Nick Foles winning the Super Bowl when Wentz went down even more of surprise. After bouncing back from an awful rookie season, Wentz separated himself from the pack in the NFC East and proved that he’s a franchise talent.

As long as he recovers well from his season-ending knee injury, he should be near the top of the MVP list again in 2018.

According to Football Outsiders, Antonio Brown had the highest Defense-Adjusted Yards Above Replacement number in the NFL at 430. This should surprise no one, and neither should the fact that Marvin Jones, Keenan Allen, DeAndre Hopkins and Michael Thomas round out the top five.

Recently there was a bit of a kerfuffle, a commotion if you will, about what it means to have fun in the NFL.

The issue of fun and football came up when Cassius Marsh told the San Francisco Chronicle’s Eric Branch of playing for the Patriots, his former team: There’s nothing fun about it. There’s nothing happy about it. I didn’t enjoy any of my time there. Current Eagles player Brandon Brooks, but also a former Texans player under coach Bill O’Brien who is disciple of Belichick, told reporters the same: S–t is not fun there.

Ex-Patriot Martellus Bennett responded to the comments with a tweet that said fun in football is all a matter of perspective.

Fun is relative. Some people have fun skydiving others find it terrifying. Some people find clubs fun others find dinner parties fun. Some folks find sex fun others think it’s miserable. It’s all relative

Tedy Bruschi, a former Patriot, defended the team in a tweet of his own.

Players that don’t like their Patriot experience are the ones that can’t take tough coaching, get eaten up by the pressure, blame others for failures and expect things are supposed to be given to them.

Carson Wentz Jersey Reportedly Expected to Be Ready for Week 1 After Knee Injury

When the Philadelphia Eagles open the 2018 NFL season against the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 6, they may be doing so with their star QB under center.
Men's Reebok Jason Kasdorf Authentic Green NHL Jersey: Buffalo Sabres #33 Salute to Service
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, via colleague Adam Schefter, said on Tuesday that he is starting to believe that Carson Wentz is going to be ready for the openerbased on what he Corey Grant Jersey is hearing.

Nick Foles wound up leading the Eagles to an upset victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, 41-33. The backup’s 373 yards and three touchdowns earned him Super Bowl MVP honors.

Make no mistake about it, though. There was no quarterback controversy following the Super Bowl run—this was and is Wentz’s team.

Philadelphia listened to offers on Foles with the intention of giving him a chance to start somewhere else if they received an offer they couldn’t refuse. However, no team blew the Eagles away with an offer, so they kept the veteran as an insurance policy for Wentz (while restructuring Foles’ contract to reward him).

Wentz has a long way to go before he is ready to step on the field against NFL defenses, but the 25-year-old has made great strides on the recovery trail. There are still just more than three months until the season kicks off, and if Wentz is for some reason unable to be cleared in time, the Eagles can take the field with a reliable fallback.

Herndon allegedly crashed his SUV into an SUV driven by a 76-year-old Manalapan man, Albert Elliott. Herndon was arrested by New Jersey State Police at 4:45 a.m., after the wreck on Interstate 80 westbound.

Elliott bruised and cut his arm, according to the Miami Herald. Herndon, 22, was not injured. He practiced as usual with the Jets on Monday and Tuesday.

I feel like I’m fine, Herndon said of his physical health after the crash. I don’t feel too bad right now. I’m just dealing with everything and trying to stay focused. I’ve just been trying to keep Darren O’Day Jersey my focus, try not to focus on that [arrest]. I’m just trying to focus in as much as I can.

Nats to place Stephen Strasburg Jersey on DL with shoulder inflammation

Washington pitcher Stephen Strasburg will go on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, manager Dave Martinez said after the Nationals’ 7-5 victory over San Francisco on Saturday.

Martinez said there was no timetable on Strasburg’s return. The right-hander left his start Friday against San Francisco after two Tim Williams Womens Jersey innings and underwent an MRI Saturday morning.

Kipnis then connected off Greene (2-3) for a drive over the right-center field scoreboard for Troy Polamalu Youth Jersey his fourth homer of the season.

I’ve only got four this year, but I still know when they are gone, he said. I caught it flush.

Kipnis came into the game hitting .205.

After popping out to right field in the first inning, Hoskins gave the Phillies a 3-2 lead on his three-run blast in his second at-bat. It was his seventh homer of the season.

The Phillies placed outfielder Dylan Cozens on the 10-day DL to make room for Hoskins on the 25-man roster.

Hoskins entered the contest with a .233 batting average and 28 RBIs this season. He burst onto the scene in 2017, when he had 18 homers and 48 RBIs in just 50 games with the Phillies.

Randal Grichuk and Kevin Pillar also homered as the Blue Jays recorded their first back-to-back victories since April 30 and May 1 at Minnesota.

Toronto went 33 games without consecutive wins, the third-longest streak in franchise history. The Blue Jays went 49 games between back-to-back wins in 1979, their third season.

You’ve got to start somewhere, Happ said. Now we’ve got two. See if we can get a streak going.

Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins Jersey Ready to Become Best QB-WR Duo in NFL Today

Travel back in time with us a bit, for it’s there the future emerged.
#5 Nike Swingman Jason Kidd Men's White NBA Jersey - Dallas Mavericks Association Edition
It was October of last year, and Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and receiver DeAndre Hopkins spent much of the afternoon lighting a historic Seahawks defense on fire. It was one of the most electric rookie performances in the history of the sport.

Watson threw for 402 yards and four touchdowns while adding 67 yards rushing. Hopkins had eight catches for 224 yards and one touchdown. It took Russell Wilson everything he had—452 passing yards, four touchdowns and 30 yards rushing—to beat them.

Has there ever been a rookie to do that? then-Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman asked. Maybe [Michael] Vick… I think [Watson’s] going to be a special player in this league. He made plays that very few people in this league can make, including the top tier guys.

According to the Cardinals’ team website, the charges against Kirk were dismissed. City prosecutor Karen Close told that Kirk paid restitution. From the beginning, I was confident that the facts and the truth would ultimately validate the type of person that I am,Kirk said in a statement. I am Womens Jay Bouwmeester Jersey grateful that was indeed the case. I appreciate all the support I have received while this process has played out, particularly from my family and friends as well as the Cardinals and this community.From the original report:

From the beginning, the Cardinals maintained all along that they knew about the incident and felt like the situation would be resolved. We knew about it,new coach Steve Wilks said earlier this month. We did our own independent research on it, and we felt very good about the information that we received and that’s why we moved forward in drafting him.

As I stated before, we want to bring in great character guys, and I think Christian is one of those guys. I think the situation is going to resolve itself here in a couple of Kent Hrbek Youth Jersey months. And with it still being an on-going legal issue, I’m not going to go into it any further than that.Kirk, taken with the 47th-overall pick, is coming of a successful college career at Texas A&M where he racked up 2,856 receiving yards and 26 touchdown catches in three seasons.
