Cousins is gone, Alex Smith is on board. And Smith is under contract for the next five years.聽

The 34-year-old may have his physical limitations and a reputation for coming up short in January, but quarterbacks’ shelf lives are long, and Smith is coming off a career year in which he was the highest-rated passer in the NFL.聽

If that was a sign that he’s blooming late, the Redskins could contend for years to come.

At the very least, that’s something to look forward to in 2018.

The quarterback he ultimately chose was Oklahoma signal-caller Baker Mayfield and Dorsey was very confident in making that decision. Wednesday, he revealed when he knew Mayfield was his guy. He felt Mayfield was their man after the team brought him in for a private workout in March.

I knew in my gut that was going to be the guy,Dorsey said on Good Morning Football via

The Browns took the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner No. 1 overall last Thursday and did so with very little hesitation.

Dorsey said it was more than just the confidence Mayfield exuded, but was very much about his attention to detail in one-on-one meetings.

The more I was around him, the more I could feel his presence, Dorsey said. I could feel his deep intellect. He had broad range Seth Curry Jersey of thinking on different subject matter.

Kacy Rodgers II getting coached up by his father on Jets

Kacy Rodgers II spent the past three seasons in the CFL. Now, he’s in the Jets offseason program with his father, defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers, as his coach.

One source told ESPN’s Vaughn McClure: “I doubt he shows up, as Jones is looking for a pay raise, with three years and $34.45 million left on his deal.

General manager Thomas Dimitroff said late last month that the team is not overly concerned about the Pro Bowl wide receiver missing offseason workouts or erasing Falcons photos from his Instagram page.

As made obvious by Commissioner Roger Goodell’s statement from Monday, the NFL will be rooting its lobbying efforts in notions like intellectual property and content creation, for which the NFL surely believes it should be compensated. Ditto for the “official, reliable league data” that the league will want to sell to the various states.

But the cut the NFL gets (or doesn’t) from the states ultimately will be small potatoes in comparison to the filet mignon available elsewhere. The NFL will make the bulk of its money from the increased interest in the sport, the licensing of team names and logos (which will make everything seem more official), the use of team and league website and apps as the conduit for betting, and in-game bets placed both at the stadium and via real-time TV transmissions that eventually remove all lag.ravens_010

Forget about Hall of Famer Kurt Warner’s musings about possibly coming back. Owens, who’ll enter the Hall of Fame in August, definitely wants to return to football.
Brandon Mebane Authentic Jersey
Owens, who recently has posted videos on social media of his workouts, said Friday that he participated in the pre-draft workout that the Browns held with former UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen.

They . . . saw me run routes when they were in LA to workout Josh Rosen, Owens said regarding Cleveland G.M. John Dorsey, coach Hue Jackson, and offensive coordinator Todd Haley. They know I still got it.

Owens last played in a regular season game more than seven years ago, with the Bengals. In 2012, he spent time with the Seahawks in the preseason.

No team has shown serious interest in signing Owens since the Seahawks released him.

The Celtics hung around in the second half and pulled within 100-93 on Marcus Smart’s basket with 4:29 left. But Thompson got free for a dunk, and after a miss by Boston, James recovered after making his seventh turnover by making a steal and layup.

Via Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia, the Eagles have been invited to the White House on June 5.

That’s a few months past the timeline which the Patriots dropped by to see President Donald Trump (April 19, 2017), but the Patriots were also carrying less baggage into a Rose Garden meeting.

A number of high-profile Eagles players (Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long, now-Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith and Brandon Graham) have already declared they wouldn’t attend.

And things might be awkward for owner Jeffrey Lurie, after he was taped during a meeting with players referring to the current administration as one f鈥搆ing disastrous presidency.

All that could make it an interesting visit, at a number of Corey Peters Womens Jersey levels.

I’ve loved Kyle ever since we made the trade to get him here James said. I don’t remember Kyle falling too much like that. I’ve got to keep his body as fresh as possible. But listen, he’s doing whatever it takes to try to help us win, with the blocks, with the strips. Obviously his shot making is very key for our team as well, but it’s just the intangibles he’s doing for us defensively.

Michael Bennett and Darren Sproles absent as Eagles start OTAs

The Eagles have their first Organized Team Activity of the offseason on Monday and a couple of veteran members of the team aren’t on hand for the voluntary practice.
Men's Nike Indianapolis Colts #2 Rigoberto Sanchez Limited Royal Blue Player Name & Number Tank Top NFL Jersey
Head coach Doug Pederson said that defensive lineman Michael Bennett and running back Darren Sproles are the only two players who opted not to report for the next phase of offseason work.

It’s Bennett’s first offseason with the team after being acquired in a trade with the Seahawks this offseason, but Pederson said they’ve spoken and isn’t concerned about the Womens Will Barton Jersey veteran being ready for the season. Pederson added that he expects Bennett for some of the 10 OTA practices and that his absence is not related to the indictment he faces in Houston.

Sproles re-signed with the team in late April and would likely be pretty limited if he were at practice after tearing his ACL last September, which may be part of the reason why Pederson was similarly unconcerned about his absence on Tuesday.

I don’t think it’s just the humidor. Even on the road, his strikeout rate has increased from 22.3 percent in 2017 to 30.0 percent and his walk rate has declined from 11.3 percent to 6.7 percent. Buster Olney alluded to a big issue in a recent column about hitters struggling with big-time fastballs: Through Friday’s games, the Diamondbacks’ first baseman had seen 77 pitches of 96 mph or faster without logging a hit, the most in the majors.

Three pitches cost him, manager Rick Renteria said. Three solo homers. We didn’t score enough runs for him.

Garcia chased Cashner with an RBI double in the sixth, making it 3-2 and putting runners on second and third with none out. But Givens came in and retired three in a row, getting Welington Castillo to pop out to first before striking out Tim Anderson and Adam Engel.

You’re hoping to get out of that with a run, but he made a lot of good pitches to some good hitters, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. We were fortunate.

Castillo did not run out his popup, and Renteria replaced him with Omar Narvaez before the Orioles batted in the seventh.

I really think it’s possible that this collaboration could make the NFL the organization that could be the leader in the #MeToo movement, Blackwell said. The NFL could really set an example.

This first pitch proves Gbaja-Biamila should stick to the two things he does best: football and television announcing. After going undrafted in 2003, he was signed by the Raiders, and he went on to stick in Oakland for two seasons, playing defensive end, linebacker and on special teams. He played in 27 games for the Raiders and had a couple of sacks. He was out of football in 2005, but he returned in 2006, appearing in three games for the Chargers. He also played one game for the Dolphins in 2007 before retiring ahead of the 2008 season. Is this first pitch worse than 50 Cent’s?

More Gbaja-Biamila then turned to broadcasting. In 2005, he had attended the NFL’s Broadcast Boot Camp, and he carried that passion into retirement. He appeared on ABC’sExpedition Impossible and also began broadcasting college athletics for CBS College Sports in the late 2000s. He is currently a host for NFL Network’sNFL Fantasy Live and a co-host forAmerican Ninja Warrior.

Here’s an attempt by ranking Witten among the 15 greatest Cowboys players of all time, a list so impressive that several Hall of Famers — Mike Ditka, Charles Haley, Terrell Owens and Rayfield Wright — were excluded:

He gets too much blame for Dallas’ 22-year Super Bowl drought. Nevertheless, the man who holds most of the franchise’s significant passing records — they include yards (34,183), TDs (248) and QB rating (97.1) — deserves a mention.

Prime would surely bristle at this position, which is more indicative of his short stay in Big D (5 years) than his unparalleled coverage ability. But he was only on one Cowboys Super Bowl team (1995) and missed half that season.colts_034

The Athens-Clarke County Police Department in Georgia confirmed to Authentic Ryan Smyth Jersey that Smith reported several items stolen from his 2018 BMW X5 on Saturday.

There was no forced entry into Smith’s BMW, and according to police, it’s possible the linebacker accidentally left the vehicle unlocked.

Not to brag, but I’m pretty sure that my Way Too Early 2018 NFL Mock Draft was pretty accurate. I had Sam Darnold/Josh Rosen/Josh Allen going early, pegged Bradley Chubb as a top prospect and actually hit on Derwin James to the Chargers (although at a different spot than it actually happened). In general it was more accurate than my actual mock, so that’s kind of depressing.

Caught up in the moment, Warner revealed that he spoke to an NFL coach early this offseason about the possibility of coming out of retirement.

Game Youth Charles Hudon Jersey My wife said, ‘Go for it. I think it would be great,’ Warner offered. So I actually talked to a coach about possibly doing it if they needed someone. Then they went out and signed somebody. I don’t think they thought I was serious. So, I think we’re completely done now.

Appearing on Tuesday’s edition of NFL Up to the Minute, Warner expressed regret that he had provided grist for football’s incessant rumor mill.

It was simply, there were a lot of teams that were needy of a quarterback this offseason and didn’t have anybody, didn’t have a vet, were probably going to go with the young guy, Warner explained. So I reached out to a coaching friend of mine. I was in good shape. I was throwing the football again. I said, ‘you know what? I think I can give you one year if you need that. One-year bridge to the future. I’m your guy.’

Donovan has tried using Patterson as a small-ball center — without either Grant or Adams on the floor — more than in the regular season as a way to stretch Gobert to his breaking point. It hasn’t worked. Patterson needs a long time to get his shot off — enough for Gobert to recover on pick-and-pops. He hasn’t done much damage off the dribble. Oklahoma City has gotten more traction with these groups by spreading the floor and just letting Westbrook attack one-on-one into open space.

Donovan is using those Patterson-at-center lineups because it is harder in the postseason to work around playing three below-average 3-point shooters at once. That is the structure of Oklahoma City’s starting five, or the giant lineup Donovan turned to in Game 4, with Grant in Corey Brewer’s place. With Andre Roberson, the Thunder could at least count on hounding defense from their so-so shooting lineups.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Hageman met with the Patriots. It鈥檚 the first known meeting that Hageman鈥檚 had this offseason and it comes with the team that Hageman faced in Super Bowl LI, which was his last non-exhibition game with Atlanta.

That said, most commissioners believe that the rules on name, image and likeness should be taken up as soon as the legal framework is established.

Payton: There will be fewer penalties for lowering the helmet than expected

Saints coach Sean Payton also serves as a member of the Competition Committee. Thus, his recent visit to PFT Live also included questions regarding recent Competition Committee projects, including the new helmet rule, which generally prohibits lowering the helmet before initiating contact.

The new helmet rule continues to be cloaked in ambiguity. Will it dramatically change the game? Will the impact be limited? Mixed signals have come from the league in the weeks since the league abruptly, and surprisingly, passed the rule.

“The good news is if the ejection is called on the field it will be reviewed always,” Payton said. “I think everyone, coaches, all of us felt like that’s gonna help us understand and get a good picture of whether it was egregious or not.

The star running back’s legal battle with the NFL lasted until the middle of November. He ultimately served the six-game suspension, with the Cowboys going 3-3 without him. Dallas finished 9-7, just missing the postseason.

But the eight games Elliott played before that were affected by the threat of the suspension, and his return was affected by six weeks off the field.

That’s why Jerry Jones expects a return to form by Elliott in 2018.

“I think that not having to address that mentally and physically, not having to think about not only the interruption of the potential suspension and the suspension but just the physical interruption, the physical aspect of that [should help Elliott],” the Cowboys owner said.

Receiver A.D. Miller had beaten the White team’s secondary down the middle of the field for what appeared to be an easy touchdown. Instead, Murray’s heave died in the wind at the goal line, allowing a pair of defenders to recover and bat the pass away.

After the two sides finished in an uninspiring 3-3 tie, head coach Lincoln Riley unexpectedly called for overtime, which allowed Murray’s Red team to prevail on a Marcelias Sutton 18-yard scoring scamper.orioles_017
