Matt Patricia brings do your job to Detroit

The Lions have picked a good team to emulate.
Men's Replica Mike Ditka Navy Blue Jersey: Home #89 NFL Chicago Bears Throwback Reebok
In addition to making former Patriots executive Bob Quinn the team’s General Manager and long-time Patriots assistant Matt Patricia the head coach, the Lions have imported the mantra that helped make New England a dynasty.

Do your job.

Last week, Bowles said the third-year pro was just nicked up, but wouldn’t guarantee Jenkins would be ready for training camp. Jenkins, however, said he’s supposed to be a go Vincent Lecavalier Jersey once camp begins. With Jenkins sidelined, Josh Martin and David Bass got first-team reps at outside linebacker.

They aren’t wearing pads yet. The hitting hasn’t begun. Spring football is a lot like exhibition baseball — you take it with several grains of salt.

But Jamal Adams — the big-talking, hard-hitting young safety — already has seen enough to make a bold early proclamation.

After retaining steady cornerback Morris Claiborne, adding No. 1-caliber cornerback Trumaine Johnson and recently nabbing veteran safety J.J. Wilcox, Adams said the Jets’ secondary should not take a backseat to anyone.

Keenum has started 38 games in his NFL career, but he’s always been the starter either because someone else got hurt, as was the case last year in Minnesota, or knowing that someone else was being groomed to take the job, as was the case the year before in Los Angeles. The Broncos, who gave Keenum a two-year, $36 million contract this offseason, are making no secret of the fact that Keenum is their man.

The Broncos are already singing Logan Stanley Authentic Jersey Keenum’s praises as a leader, and even Paxton Lynch, the former first-round pick who is relegated to backup behind Keenum, is happy to have the veteran aboard.

I was really excited, actually, when we got Case for the fact he’s a veteran guy who’s been through it a little bit and had his ups and downs, Lynch told the Denver Post. The way he carries himself and handles himself – he’s a pro and that only benefits me and the other guys in the locker room and the other guys in the quarterback room.

Keenum wouldn’t be there if Lynch had become the kind of quarterback John Elway thought he was when the Broncos took him in the first round two years ago. But perhaps Lynch can learn something from Keenum about how to develop into a starter, even if it takes some time.

The Patriots talked about patriotism.

Watch: CFL player takes out streaking fan with intense shoulder check

The BC Lions were playing against the Montreal Alouettes when a fan decided to lose his pants and streak on the field during the second quarter of the game.
Women's Jason Hammel Replica Light Blue Majestic Jersey: MLB Kansas City Royals #39 Alternate Cool Base
The fan ran freely for a minute or two before Lions defensive back Marcell Young decided he had enough. The streaker came running in Young’s direction and that’s when the fan’s plan to storm the field took a turn for the worst.

Young made a brutal shoulder check, sending the fan to the ground. Eventually the streaker was helped up and escorted off the field with security.

For now, he’s perfectly happy at home. Later on in life, though? Well, that’s a different story.

Someday I’ll get back in the game, Giambi said, no doubt about it.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft, Clowney is slated to make $12.3 million this season under the fifth-year option of his rookie contract.

The Chronicle’s longtime NFL beat reporter John McClain writes:

I may be wrong, but I don’t think the Texans will sign Clowney to an extension. He missed the on-field part of the offseason program to rehab a knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery in January. Luke Kuechly Jersey Until he shows them he’s healthy, able to consistently stay on the field and play as well or better than last season, I don’t see them committing long-term to him.

The Texans have proved they’re willing to commit to players, most recently signing linebacker Benardrick McKinney to a five-year, $50 million extension.

There’s some risk for Houston regarding Clowney.

Is he selfish for showing off his throwing arm at times? No, he just has a rocket, and he tries to deter baserunners with it.

Is he selfish for speaking his mind or for being cocky? No, that’s just his personality. Deal with it.

Small ball is gone, but small minds are still around, and they’re perpetuating a tired narrative. They won’t stop some team (maybe even the one that employs the nameless exec) from meeting Harper’s (and agent Scott Boras’) offseason demands, which someone surely will term as selfish.

Rams DC not concerned over Aaron Donald’s absence

The Los Angeles Rams continue to get a close look at a retooled defense with defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh and cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters.
Nike NFL Cody Whitehair Navy Blue Jersey Women's Limited: #65 Chicago Bears Home Vapor Untouchable
One key piece, however, remains absent from the mandatory minicamp.

The All-Pro defensive tackle didn’t attend organized team activities and training camp in 2017 last year before reporting in early September. Despite the missed time and change of defensive scheme from a 4-3 base defense to a 3-4, Donald went on to record 41 tackles (32 solo) and 11 sacks en route to being named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year.

In Womens Rashard Robinson Jersey the meantime, the Rams have expressed optimism throughout the offseason of eventually getting a deal done. More important, the communication line remains open between the Rams and Donald, who is scheduled Sonny Milano Womens Jersey to earn a base salary of $6.89 million in 2018.

I think a big part for us, as a whole, offensively is just finishing in the end zone, Garoppolo said Wednesday, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Bay Area.

Last year we got stopped short a couple of times, more than we’d like to. And I think we’ve done a good job in OTAs and minicamp of finishing in the end zone, for the most part. Finishing drives and stuff like that.

The 49ers scored points on 60 percent of Garoppolo’s drives, per NFL Research, almost doubling the 2017 league average. The Patriots, for comparison, scored on 52.8 percent of Tom Brady ‘s drives.

The converse point to the above statistic — beyond sample size — is that most of those scoring drives were field goals.

In Jimmy G’s first start of the season the Niners were 0-of-5 in converting red zone possessions into field goals. In 24 trips inside the 20-yard line in Garoppolo’s five starts, San Francisco scored 11 TDs, settled for 12 field goals and the quarterback threw one interception.

Jets fourth-round pick Chris Herndon charged with DWI

Jets fourth-round draft pick Chris Herndon was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated on Saturday.

The Miami Herald reports that Herndon, who played his college football at the University of Miami, was arrested after crashing his car early Saturday morning in New Jersey.

With the recent addition of Sammy Watkins, to go along with deep threats in Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, Kansas City now has four players who can win in space and take advantage of mismatches. The dynamic of both volume and efficiency that Hunt brings to the Chiefs backfield will stress defenses for the next three-plus years.

Over the last two years, Joey Bosa has posted 23.0 sacks. Among 2016 draftees, only Yannick Ngakoue (20.0 sacks), Matt Judon (12.0 sacks) and Leonard Floyd (11.5 sacks) crack double digits. In terms of tackles at or behind the line over the last two years, Bosa has 37.0, Judon has 26.0, Ngakoue has 25.0 and Floyd has 20.5.

What we’ve seen is a guy that his weight definitely has not affected him, Koetter said Thursday, via He’s got an excellent motor and he is a very strong human being. I mean, you can ask those guards that are playing against him. I mean he’s got a move with that inside arm. I’ve seen him lift 300-pound men off the ground with one arm. It’s impressive, his strength.

Again, it’s unclear how hard they’re going at it, and specifically how much resistance Vea is facing when he shows off his strength.

But let’s not miss the point. He’s lifting 300-pound men off the ground with one arm. Which suggests that havoc will be wreaked when it’s time for Vea to go full speed.

That’s really where the focus needs to be for everything from economics to the integrity to the consistency across state lines.

That statement is fairly boilerplate stuff, but overlooking the key phrase dropped in the middle of principle No. the leagues) before taking bets, but also neutralize the bad agentsthe league is so wary of.

Donald Trump: Eagles Uninvited to White House over Disagreement on Anthem Policy

President Donald Trump rescinded an invitation to the Philadelphia Eagles to commemorate their Super Bowl LII victory over the New England Patriots at the White House on Tuesday. 
Reebok NHL Youth Auston Matthews White Away Authentic Jersey - #34 Toronto Maple Leafs
CNN’s Phil Mattingly shared a statement from the White House indicating the two parties disagreed over Trump’s insistence NFL players stand for the national anthem on the sideline prior to games:

The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House. Unfortunately, only a small number of players decided to come, and we canceled the event. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling. Sorry!

The NFL recently enacted a new policy regarding the national anthem that requires players to stand for the anthem if they’re present on the sidelines. Players can opt instead to remain in the locker room until the anthem concludes.

Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich, who is treasurer for the NFLPA, invited Trump to Womens Tim Duncan Jersey visit the Giants’ locker room and Michael Thomas, who kneeled last season while on the Dolphins, said he won’t allow himself to be emotionally hijackedby the new anthem policy.

The Eagles did not have any players take a knee during the anthem in 2017 but acquired outspoken Michael Bennett Authentic Justin Vogel Jersey who would not have been part of the visit this offseason.

Started by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, kneeling is intended to bring awareness to social injustices, police brutality and acts of racism.

Eagles star Malcolm Jenkins, a Piscataway native, has been one of the leader’s of the NFL’s social movement and he has communicated with law enforcement and helped convince the NFL to commit $89 million over seven years to the cause. He referred to Trump as an Internet troll.

J.R. Smith’s NBA Finals blunder used as teaching moment for Bears

Everyone can learn from J.R. Smith’s massive mistake at the end of Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Even the Chicago Bears.
Nike Paul George Authentic Men's Jersey - NBA Indiana Pacers #13 Navy Blue City Edition
On Wednesday, Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky told NFL Network the team watched Smith’s blunder the day after it happened to better understand situational awareness.

We actually watched that the next days as a team and tried to learn from the situation, Trubisky said. I was having a hard time watching it twice again, but it just goes to show you everyone gets caught up in the moment even if it’s the biggest of lights. But you always have to know the situation, so take advantage of it.

Pittsburgh was without second baseman and leadoff hitter Josh Harrison, absent because of a personal matter, according to Hurdle.

Catcher Francisco Cervelli was struck on the mask and left side of his jaw by Heyward’s foul ball in the third inning, then was replaced by Elias Diaz for the bottom of the fourth.

Chicago’s Javier Baez entered in the ninth, and the second baseman ended the game with a neat grab.

Incognito has had an interesting offseason to say the least. The veteran announced in April he was firing his agent and retiring because Matt Hendricks Authentic Jersey he was too stressed, but changed his mind a week later before asking the Bills to release him from his contract.

He was then involved in an altercation at a Florida gym last month and spent three days on an involuntary psychiatric hold as a result. He had Authentic Kevin Garnett Jersey previously received treatment for mental health issues in 2014 after reportedly smashing his own car with a baseball bat.

Incognito, 34, started all 16 games for Buffalo last season.

Covey pitched six scoreless innings and Chicago’s bullpen finished up a three-hitter, lifting the White Sox over the Boston Red Sox 1-0 on Friday night.

Kevan Smith had two hits and scored the only run after leading off the seventh with a ground-rule double, scoring on Trayce Thompson’s one-out single to left off former White Sox ace Chris Sale.

Give credit to both chuckers today. Dylan did a great job, did a great job. So did Sale, Chicago manager Rick Renteria said. Dylan ended up holding his own.

Covey (2-1) more than kept pace with Sale (5-4), who lost his third straight start despite striking out 10 in eight innings.

San Diego AAF team to have coaching staff filled with NFL names

The Alliance of American Football is planning to bring professional football back to San Diego with former St. Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz serving as the head coach of the franchise. According to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Martz’s coaching staff will be filled with many prominent names with NFL backgrounds as well.
Women's Nike Cleveland Browns #70 Kevin Zeitler Limited Olive/USA Flag 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
Jon Kitna will serve as the team’s offensive coordinator with former Rams and Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Larry Marmie serving as the team’s defensive coordinator. Hall of Fame offensive lineman Jackie Slater, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Dre Bly will also coach on Martz’s staff. Marmie has 15 years of coaching experience in the NFL serving most recently as a senior defensive assistant under Lovie Smith with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014-15.

And he can change it, though he said his primary motivation is to prove to himself that I can play in this league.

DaQuan Jones Jersey Four months after the trade, and following聽a four-year extension that features $71 million in guaranteed salary, Smith’s acclimation to his new surroundings remains in its infancy.

We’re already throwing a lot at him,Gruden said. No huddle, two-minute, red zone. You know he’s been well-coached by (Jim) Harbaugh, and Andy Reid. And he’s been through the ringer as a player.

Reid and Jon Gruden, Jay’s brother and the Raiders coach,聽share West Coast Offense roots having coached together in Green Bay.聽But Smith has still had plenty to learn.

They diverged long enough ago that聽they’re both like Latin-based languages, but it’s kind of like Italian and Spanish,Smith told USA TODAY Sports after Wednesday’s practice. It’s a different language, but certainly the structure of the playbook and how we call plays and do things, there’s some carry-over there.

Outside of football, things also remain far from settled. Smith is still living at an area Residence Inn. He and his wife have found a home, Justin Patton Youth jersey but it’s not yet ready for them to move in.聽With Smith’s two sons in school up until last Friday, he spent the offseason聽commuting between northern Virginia and Kansas City.

But Smith counts that as a blessing of sorts, as聽the time away from family has allowed聽him to focus squarely on football.

Saints’ Anzalone hopes shoulder fix unleashes his potential

Saints linebacker Alex Anzalone hopes he’s done seeing promising seasons snuffed out prematurely by his troublesome right shoulder.

It was fixed really well this time, Anzalone asserted after New Orleans’ offseason practice on Thursday. My shoulder dislocated, but it was fixed differently.

That bet appeared to be paying off when Anzalone’s speed and ability to correctly read and quickly react to plays stood out during training camp, earning him a starting nod as a rookie in Week 1.

Four games into the season, however, Anzalone extended his right arm during a diving tackle attempt against Miami and the shoulder gave out — again. He landed on injured reserve, ending his season.

It wasn’t anything too unfamiliar, Anzalone said. He noted that his generally optimistic outlook on life, combined with his prior experience with shoulder rehabilitation, helped him deal with the injury.

Rudolph is not only the longest-tenured offensive player on the roster, but he and wide receiver Adam Thielen are the only ones who joined the team before Mike Zimmer was hired as head coach in 2014. Thielen was on the practice squad in 2013. In fact, Rudolph, Thielen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs are the only members of the offense who’ve been here more than three years.

Rudolph, who will turn 29 on Nov. 9, is coming off the most fruitful two-year stretch in the NFL. He had 81 catches for 532 yards and eight touchdowns in 2017 and, just as importantly, played in all 16 games for a third straight season.

He’s endured more than his share of injuries going back to his college days at Notre Dame, and that helped minimize any anxiety that might have come with a procedure done at this stage of his career. Rudolph counted five surgeries in the past 10 years.

Hamilton made Manziel a two-year contract offer聽Jan. 7 to keep him on its negotiation list while it tried to work out a deal.

Authentic Womens Duane Brown Jersey I think he’d be the best player to ever play up here, Jones said in December. He can throw it and he can run it like nobody ever has been able to do.
NFL Nike Men's David Johnson White Road Elite Jersey - #31 Arizona Cardinals Vapor Untouchable
He boosted the Raiders defense on a mid-season trial last year, so a return may be optimal for Oakland. Though Bowman will turn 30 later this month, he is a balanced and smart tackler who offers聽plenty of leadership and experience. Injuries have been a concern, so perhaps a reduced role is in order.

At 32, his best bet may be to land a short-term deal with a chance to win now. He’s no longer a full-time starter, but he’s versatile enough to play inside, outside聽or at free safety.

Though he never lived up to his first-round draft status with the Saints, Vaccaro can be a fit with an inventive defensive coordinator who limits his liability in pass coverage. He might be best suited on a team where he can play in a three-safety nickel package.

Far removed from his lone Pro Bowl season in 2014, Maclin can still serve as an effective possession receiver with the right quarterback. Though he has posted just 976 yards in the last two years, he聽could be a reliable slot option.

He may not be a No. 1 receiver anymore, but Bryant can still help a passing attack, especially Skal Labissiere Jersey in the red zone. If he’s determined to parlay a one-year prove-it deal into a better contract in 2019, he might be best served going to a team with an established top target so he can enjoy favorable matchups.

Before failing a physical with the Panthers due聽to a cut he sustained to his foot,聽Breeland looked like a valuable addition in the聽secondary. If a team is comfortable with his medical status, he聽could be a bargain at this point in the offseason.
Harold Landry”>Authentic”>Harold Landry Jersey
He聽filed a grievance alleging collusion in the aftermath of his kneeling during the national anthem,聽so many teams might not consider him. Still, his comfort playing both safety and linebacker could make him an intriguing piece for the right defense.

Jim Daopoulos: I don’t know why the NFL keeps the kickoff in the game

The NFL made sweeping changes to kickoff rules at the league meetings earlier this month in hopes of reducing the number of injuries sustained on such plays. While the league believes that the changes will increase the number of kickoff returns and make it a more explosive play while simultaneously quelling the numbers of injuries, former NFL official Jim Daopoulos doesn’t Len Dawson”>Authentic”>Len Dawson Jersey understand why the league doesn’t nix the play altogether.
Miami Dolphins”>Limited Womens”>Miami Dolphins Jersey Youth Nicklas Backstrom Authentic Navy Blue Adidas Jersey: NHL Washington Capitals #19 2018 Stadium Series
I actually can see them eliminating the kickoff completely in the next couple of years, Daopoulos said on Sirius XM NFL Radio. I think it’s really going to come down to that. And I don’t even know why they keep the kickoff in the game by putting these new rules in. Why don’t they just put the ball at the 25-yard line? It’ll make it a whole lot simpler for everybody and really eliminate a lot of injuries.

Said Jermaine Kearse: For him to keep his optimism and continue to battle, I respect the s–t out of that.聽Can’t have nothing but respect for that.

Quarterbacks win their teammates over with hard work long before the regular season starts. Bridgewater is already staking his claim to start.

He attempted to come back during a two-week window of practice, but said the lingering effects of the concussion returned. It’s difficult whenever you get an injury that holds you out, when you kind of feel like you’re good and then find out you’re not.

Youth Nick Easton Jersey It’s always tough, he said. I think it was just over time, it wasn’t just one thing. I’ve had five documented concussions, and probably more than that which aren’t documented. It was just residual effects that I couldn’t overcome, which is unfortunate. But sometimes that’s the way it plays out and you just have to deal with it…. I was feeling good, but unfortunately had more residual effects from concussions.
