The NFC North looks a lot different heading into training camp

The biggest storylines as NFC North teams head into training camp are the new faces found everywhere in the division. With the Bears, it’s players like Danny Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman, who should provide significant upgrades to Chicago’s linebacker corps.

In Detroit, the Lions will look to receivers Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin to help fill the void left by Calvin Johnson’s retirement. They’ll also hope Mitchell Schwartz and first-round draft pick Taylor Decker can help keep Matthew Stafford upright.

For the Green Bay Packers, it’s tight end Jared Cook, who Authentic K.J. Wright Jersey has an opportunity to become an impact receiver for Aaron Rodgers. Cook is recovering from foot surgery, which may complicate things for him a bit this preseason. In Minnesota, Alex Boone should go a long way toward lowering the number of hits taken by Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and Laquon Treadwell gives Bridgewater a big, strong receiving threat.

Teddy Bridgewater got hit a lot last season. The Vikings took steps to address that this offseason, bringing in veteran guard Alex Boone and tackle Andre Smith. How this unit shapes up could tip the divisional balance of power in Minnesota’s favor.

The Vikings drafted a big, physical receiver in Laquon Treadwell in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft to give Bridgewater a reliable weapon. Treadwell is expected to factor into the Vikings’ offensive plans heavily and early, and training camp will be an opportunity for him to acclimate to the NFL and develop chemistry with his quarterback.

Of course, they still have Adrian Peterson, who has yet to show any signs of slowing down. He is 31 years old and set to make $18 million next season. The Vikings need to start thinking about life after Peterson, and the next few weeks will help them get a sense of Authentic Kam Chancellor Jersey what third-year running back Jerick McKinnon can do.

Surrounded by relocation controversy, Raiders fans can take solace in the fact that their offense may be the best it’s been in years. In addition to the blossoming connection between Carr and Cooper, running back Latavius Murray — who finished second in the NFL in rushing yards in 2015 — has also emerged as a dynamic threat. Perhaps most impressively, he caught 41 passes out of the backfield last year as well.

The addition of Kelechi Osemele should also improve an offensive line that was already pretty good. For the first time in a while, the Raiders will look to not just return to relevance, but compete.

Maybe the biggest culprit for the Chargers’ miserable 4-12 campaign was their paltry defense — and it probably got worse this offseason. The team lost starting defensive end Kendall Reyes in free agency and stalwart safety Eric Weddle as well. Expectations are high for No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa, who still hasn’t signed his rookie deal.

Training camp will reveal the readiness of all the new faces in the AFC South to contribute and give a first look at some of the most promising young teams in the NFL.

The Houston Texans offense may have been the most discussed offense in the weeks leading up to training camp. The additions of quarterback Brock Osweiler and Lamar Miller — who replaces longtime Texans running back Arian Foster — were the two most noteworthy moves.

The team also drafted speedy receivers Will Fuller and Braxton Miller, who will join DeAndre Hopkins, a dynamic receiver in his own right. Altogether, this offense should be fun to watch throughout training camp and the season.

Leon Hall chooses to sign with Giants instead of Bengals, per report

Free agent cornerback Leon Hall has signed with the New York Giants, choosing a one-year, $2 million deal with the team over a return to the Cincinnati Bengals, according to Rand Getlin of Hall, 31, played for the Bengals from 2007 when Cincinnati made him the 18th overall pick. He’s been a starting cornerback ever since, and a reliable one at that.

The only issue on the reliability front is an Robert Griffin III Jersey injury history that has impacted a couple seasons in a big way and others in a smaller way. Last season, he missed two games due to injury, but had 55 tackles and a pair of interceptions along with nine passes defensed.

“The Commissioner is the chief executive officer of the NFL,” the ruling reads. “Article 46 of the Agreement authorizes the Commissioner to impose discipline for ‘conduct detrimental to the integrity of, or public confidence in, the game of professional football.’ The standard NFL player contract further acknowledges that the Commissioner has the power ‘to fine player in a reasonable amount; to suspend player for a period certain or indefinitely; and/or to terminate this contract.’ The Agreement does not define ‘conduct detrimental’ or prescribe maximum or presumptive punishments for such conduct.”

Goodell’s authority as a disciplinarian was bolstered by the recent ruling that will force Tom Brady to sit the first four games of the 2016 season and was heightened even more by the decision to enforce his ruling against Peterson. When the Vikings running back won his appeal in February 2015, it was ruled that Goodell retroactively applied rules in the newly Shon Coleman Jersey created NFL personal conduct policy.

“We are not convinced that the arbitrator exceeded his authority in the manner alleged,” the ruling on Thursday read. “The arbitrator concluded that the August 2014 communications did not change the June 2014 Personal Conduct Policy.”

The ruling will not force Peterson to serve any more of a suspension, but it does mean the Vikings running back has to pay up:

If he is able to return from the injury it will likely be after an extended stay on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list or the injured reserve with a designation to return.

Brock Osweiler ‘not surprised’ by chilly Denver reception

DENVER — Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler, who was booed by Denver Broncos fans each time he came onto the field in a 27-9 loss Monday night, said he was not surprised by the crowd’s reactions to his return.

Osweiler was playing in Denver for the first time since leaving to sign a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans during the offseason.

“I was definitely not surprised by Benson Mayowa Jersey that,” Osweiler said. “I assumed I’d get a lot of boos. In fact, I thought it would be a little bit louder with those boos.”

Foster also made headlines this season as one of three Dolphins players, along with receiver Kenny Stills and safety Michael Thomas, to take a knee during the national anthem before every game.

Texans coach Bill O’Brien learned Bill Bates Jersey of his former player’s retirement following Houston’s 27-9 Monday night loss to the Broncos.

“One of the smartest players that I’ve coached. Great zone runner, excellent vision, big,” O’Brien said at his postgame news conference. “What we found with him was how good he was out of the backfield in the passing game. He was excellent in the passing game. Great receiving back, so lot of respect for Arian.”

Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph said: “[Foster] was a great running back with the Texans as far as all time. He was a great, unique guy off the field with some strong beliefs. He had a great frame of mind and I just wish him well in the future. That’s the way football works, though. Everybody has a different life span in this league. Obviously, he did it for a long time in this league so he really didn’t have anything left to prove.”

Texans QB Brock Osweiler struggled in his return to Denver, finishing 22-for-41 for 131 yards without a touchdown and with a lost fumble. His return was the story of the week leading up to this Week 7 contest, and he said after the game that part of him is happy that this week is over.

“I think there was so much that was built up about myself and the Broncos in this game,” Osweiler said. “And at the end of the day, it was the Houston Texans versus the Denver Broncos. We came up here tonight. We did not play a good enough football game to get this job done.”

“The nerve has to start firing again. Once it starts firing again, he should be fine. It’s just a matter of when is it going to start firing again?,” Mora said in a news conference. “He’s getting all the treatment he can get. He’s doing everything he can do. Our doctors are as good as they get. He’s got a dad at home who’s a doctor, so he’s surrounded by good people. It’s just a matter of his arm starting to fire. He’s been trying to throw, and it just hasn’t gotten to the point where he can cut it loose yet.”

Mike Fafaul has played in Rosen’s place, and he set UCLA records for pass attempts (70) and completions (40) in a 52-45 loss to the Utes on Saturday. He threw five touchdown passes but was picked off four times. Rosen warmed up prior to the game, but did not play.

FSU safety Derwin James continues to recover from the knee surgery he underwent last month.

Jimmy Garoppolo leaves Dolphins game with shoulder injury

New England Patriots Jimmy Garoppolo left Sunday’s game against the AFC East rival Miami Dolphins with a right shoulder injury. Garoppolo took a big hit from linebacker Kiko Alonso, and stayed down on the field in Melvin Ingram Jersey obvious pain. In the third quarter, the Patriots downgraded Garoppolo’s status to out, and he did not return to the game.

Garoppolo was transported to the hospital before the game ended for further tests, and according to Kevin Duffy of, X-rays revealed that Garoppolo did not suffer a fracture. CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora reported that Garoppolo will undergo further tests.

Robert Griffin III: The Cleveland Browns were already preparing to play without RGIII this week against the Baltimore Ravens, but will reportedly be without him for much longer. According to Shefter, Griffin Mike Scifres Jersey is now expected to miss 10-12 weeks with his shoulder injury, meaning he could be out for the rest of the regular season. It appears as if it’s time for year two of the Josh McCown era.

Elvis Dumervil: Fortunately for McCown, the Ravens will be without their top pass-rusher Sunday. Dumervil is reportedly eyeing a Week 3 return from a foot injury he suffered last year. Dumervil played through the pain in 2015 and led the team with six sacks, but opted to get offseason surgery.

Jamaal Charles: It has been almost a year since Charles tore his ACL against the Chicago Bears. The star running back will be sidelined again this week when the Chiefs take on the Houston Texans, but is expected to return against the New York Jets next Sunday.

Donald was ejected from the game because he made contact with an official, but that wasn’t the extent of his outburst. The incident started when the star lineman ripped the helmet off 49ers receiver Quinton Patton while officials were convening to discuss a potential late hit penalty on Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree. Donald slammed his own helmet into the turf after he had been booted. He was fined $9,115 for unnecessary roughness and $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct. In total, the fines amount to roughly a fourth of his Week 1 check.

One day after the incident, Donald took complete responsibility for his actions. “I was just seeing something happening and just tried to run over there and help one of my guys,” he said, via NFL Media. “And, like I said, it was just a dumb decision on my part.”

Ludwig USA Today Sports The Super Bowl champions showed they are still the team to beat the AFC East as they held off the Buffalo Bills 40 at Orchard Park. continued his excellent start to the with three touchdown passes, two of them to Edelman. His 466 Willie Cauley-Stein Jersey yards through the air was the second-largest total of his career, and the most ever by a quarterback against the Bills. The Patriots have now won 27 of their past 30 meetings against Buffalo, whose thoughts were with safety, who was taken to hospital with a neck injury. Bills head coach put the blame on himself after the loss. Belichick outcoached me, said. No question about it, and that’s where the game… that’s how it ended up, and it’s unfortunate. The plan has to be better on defense. Can’t give up 500 yards and beat anybody, and then we turn it over three times. We did a horse shit job, and it’s responsibility. Manziel Alex Mack Jersey threw a 60-yard touchdown pass to on ‘s second play and connected with his wide receiver again for a clutch 50-yarder with 2 left, giving the Browns a 28 win over the Tennessee Titans. also returned a punt 78 yards for a TD the first half as the Browns got just their third home-opening win since 1999.

Starting place of injured McCown, Manziel finished 8 of 15 for 172 yards. His last completion was vintage Football as Manziel spun to his left to avoid pressure and threw deep to. Manziel won his Heisman Trophy matchup with Marcus Mariota, who threw two TD passes the second half for the Titans, but took a pounding his second game. The No2 overall pick was sacked seven times. There was more late pain for the New Giants as Julio Jones caught a perfect 37-yard pass from, setting up Devonta Freeman’s two-yard touchdown run with 1 remaining, lifting the Atlanta Falcons to victory. Jones was unstoppable the Falcons’ second straight victory, tying the club record with 13 receptions, good for 135 yards. His biggest catch was down the left sideline behind Amukamara the final moments, setting up the win. The Giants, whose bad decisions and poor execution cost them last week at Dallas, blew a 20 fourth-quarter lead. Hankerson caught a 10-yard TD pass to bring Atlanta within three. Then guided the Falcons 70 yards to the winning score. Manning misfired to two open receivers on the Giants’ final drive another ugly finish for New.

Jones, a third-round draft pick out of, scored from 39 yards the first quarter, and from three with about two and a half minutes left the fourth. After his first TD, he jumped into the front row of the stands. After the second, Jones clapped his hands together, doing his college’s Gator Chomp celebration. With their revamped defense looking good for the second game a row, Washington led 17 at halftime, the first time they shut out opponent the first half since October 2011, also against the Rams. Cousins went 23 for 27 for 207 yards and a four-yard TD pass to Pierre Garcon. Most importantly, he did not throw interception. His pair of picks a Week 1 loss to Miami gave him 21 15 NFL games. Griffin III was inactive for Washington, reduced to No3 quarterback status behind Cousins and Colt. Elsewhere, Roethlisberger passed for 369 yards and three touchdowns, tied a team record with three rushing scores and the Pittsburgh Steelers overwhelmed the San Francisco 49ers 43.

Philadelphia made its historic comeback with surprisingly little help from its power play

When the Canadiens need a stop they call on the shutdown pairing of Gorges and Gill, whom Crosby saw much of the conference semifinals. After not playing the first three of the postseason, O’Byrne has Jusuf Nurkic Jersey played 10 of the last 11 contests. the clinching Game 7 against Pittsburgh, the Canadiens dressed Gorges, Gill, Hamrlik, Subban, Bergeron and Spacek, and all but the latter two played more than 20 minutes.

Leighton’s amazing story continues: Picked up on waivers December, he saves the Flyers’, only to be sidelined with ankle injury March. His first game back, he has to save the Flyers again, replacing injured Boucher. He then turned winning performances Game 6 and 7. Jaroslav Halak is two series wins away from sainthood. He is tied for first save percentage, fourth goals-against average, and one of Kenneth Faried Jersey three goalies with 8 victories. Jaroslav Halak Goalie – MTL RECORD: GAA: 2 | SVP: 0 Obviously you can’t forget about Jaro and how special he’s been playing right now, Gorges said. I mean, he’s been unreal. There’s no other words to explain it. Laviolette, Flyers — Laviolette has shown his juggling skills are on par with his coaching abilities. Frequent injuries to his forward lines have kept him changing lines, but he pressed all the right buttons against Boston. He showed he could keep a team focused the worst of times and deserves a great deal of credit for not letting panic or frustration creep into the locker room., Canadiens — has been tactically sound for the entire playoff run, at times shortening his bench and not adverse to re-configuring lines, as he did before Game 4 against Pittsburgh that led to a win. He’s also made sure to give ample playing time to his pesky third line of Moore-Lapierre-Moen Benoit Pouliot, who has excelled offensively and defensively. Against Washington, benched Jaroslav Halak for one game following two-straight losses, but he’s unlikely to take such a gamble against having gotten this far.

Philadelphia made its historic comeback with surprisingly little help from its power play — the Flyers went just 2-for-15 winning three-straight to tie the series. They certainly don’t lack for skill, with Pronger and Carle at the points on the top unit, and Richards, Gagne and Giroux always around the net looking for rebounds. Gagne’s winning goal Game 7 came on the power play. The strong penalty killing the Flyers showed the first round against New Jersey carried through the semifinals, as they limited Boston to just 3 power-play goals winning the series. The Canadiens are near the top of the League playoff leaders both categories. Their power play unit is fifth at 21 percent. Eight of those scores have come on the road, and three at home. Montreal’s penalty killers have the unit fourth at 85 percent despite being shorthanded 62 times. They are 87 at home and 83 on the road. Danny Briere, Flyers — When Briere reached free agency 2007, the Canadiens made signing him a priority, but instead the Gatineau, Que., native signed Philadelphia. He became Public Enemy No. 1 at the Centre, getting booed every visit. This, he responded with 4 goals two. Jaroslav Halak, Montreal — The 25-year-old Slovak has survived the Montreal pressure cooker and made entire nation believe a No. 8 seed can win a Cup. Halak has also taken a ton of pressure off a banged-up defense that includes Subban, a rookie — albeit impressive one — who had only two of NHL experience before this postseason. That’s what I’m there for, said Halak. Guys block shots, guys score goals, kill penalties, everybody on this team contributes to what we’re doing, and I just do part. Flyers win if … They don’t get frustrated by Jaroslav Halak. The Montreal netminder has shown ability to steal by himself, and blown chances seemed to emotionally effect the Capitals and Penguins. The players have to understand that staying with the plan and continuing to generate traffic at the net eventually create cracks the Canadiens’ defense. Canadiens win if … Sure, Halak has made all the big stops, but the Canadiens have also gotten this far with a commitment to defense, blocking NHL-high 320 shots — second place Chicago is not even close with 190. Stopping all those pucks makes Montreal’s 39 goals really stand up on the scoreboard. Five of their eight wins have been by one goal. Preview compiled by Kimelman and Bonanno.

We be doing daily ASG debates until 2015 Esurance MLB All

ALLENDALE TOWNSHIP — It’s rare to find a student who inspires not only their peers, but their professors as well. Grand Valley State University’s Albright, 21, is one of those students. As a professor, we Vincent Jackson Jersey convey knowledge and try to inspire our students but with the flow goes the other way, computing professor and mentor Engelsma said. A special ceremony was held on Thursday to celebrate Albright’s graduation at Seidman House on the Allendale Campus. Family and the most of the computer science faculty was present as President J. Haas and Provost R. Davis awarded him with a bachelor’s degree computer science. exudes a non-bending perseverance to reach a dream and it has been very inspiring to everyone he works with, said Leidig, the director of the computing and information systems school.

Albright was diagnosed with Warren Sapp Jersey Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a disorder that weakens muscles and shortens one’s life span, when he was 4. He graduated from Hudsonville High School when he was 16 after being home-schooled by his mother. He was working year-round to get through because one of his friends with Duchenne’s died at 14, Albright said a statement. of these boys never finish high school. He began taking GVSU classes 2007. His mother joined him college to help take notes and navigate through campus. It’s funny, she seems to know as much about computer science as our students since she’s listened to classes, Engelsma said. In college, Albright became advocate for disabled students. To complete his curriculum-required internship, he helped design a smart phone application that identifies handicapped-accessible locations on campus. The app, which the team calls ‘Grand Access,’ was ultimately Albright’s idea. He collected all of the groundwork data for the project and is the domain expert. He has a trooper mentality, rain or shine, no matter what, is here, said Engelsma. His passion to graduate and to the project, which is giving back to people who have the challenges he has, is amazing. Engelsma said that Albright is always cheerful, even when he isn’t feeling well, and that he is a of. It’s impressive to how his carries him through his life, he said. Albright and his family recognized that school was becoming too stressful when he was hospitalized December. GVSU alum Kley, of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, said that he knew that Albright had already accomplished amazing things on campus, proving his mastery of computer science. Kley called the president’s office to if early graduation was a possibility. I much potential, I wanted to break down those barriers to allow him to really flourish, Kley said. The computer science faculty voted and agreed to award him his degree. Albright had a dream to graduate college and instead of using his disabilities as excuse he turned them around and used it as advantage that has made the campus more accessible, Leidig said. Besides his degree, Albright was given award recognizing the inspiration he has been for his peers. His mother received recognition for her dedication and devotion helping her son succeed. Kley said that he has already heard of possible job opportunities for Albright. He could be such a benefit to any company and if we could start putting his skills to use a working environment, that would be amazing, Kley said.

There was a play at the plate on Crisp’s flyball

The A’s got their runs the top frame, highlighted by Josh Reddick’s solo shot to right that was aided by strong winds. Vogt made it 3 when he scored on Crisp’s sacrifice fly to left field. There was a play at the plate on Patrick Kerney Jersey Crisp’s flyball, but Vogt easily beat the throw. Peralta’s heave was on target, but there wasn’t much mustard behind it. THIRD INNING: A’S 1, TIGERS 0 The A’s draw first blood when Crisp scored from second after Miguel Cabrera couldn’t handle a hard-hit grounder with two outs. Sanchez limited the bleeding to one run after he struck out Smith to strand runners on first and second. The Tigers are fortunate they’re only trailing by a run right now.

The A’s have stranded five today and are only 1-for-7 with runners scoring position. As for Cabrera? He was visibly frustrated Paul McQuistan Jersey the dugout after the inning. He was spotted pointing at the field talking with several teammates, including Sanchez. My thoughts? It was clearly error. Cabrera was terrible position and didn’t square up, allowing the ball to bounce into the outfield. If he had put his body front of the grounder, it would’ve bounced off his chest, which would’ve kept the run from scoring. SECOND INNING: TIGERS 0, A’S 0 Still nervous about Jhonny Peralta playing left field?

With the wind behind the ball, Peralta made a tricky catch at the warning track and was promptly greeted to a loud cheer and a small standing ovation. Two batters later, he called off and Iglesias and caught a routine flyball. Once again, he was rewarded with another loud ovation. The offense, meanwhile, continues to struggle. The Tigers go the second, extending their streak to 19 straight innings without a run scored. FIRST INNING: TIGERS 0, A’S 0 Rarely do you a pitcher give a fist-pump the first inning, but Sanchez was clearly pumped after getting Cespedes to whiff at a high fastball for a third strike for out No. 3. It was a big out for Sanchez, who was able to escape the first inning unscathed after giving up a leadoff double to Coco Crisp and a two-out walk to Moss. The Tigers, meanwhile, got a two-out single from Cabrera, but came up empty handed after Fielder hit a two-out popup to short. Austin continues to look lost at the plate after another strikeout — his sixth his last seven at-bats. PREGAME: I know, some of you are angry. And it’s totally understandable.

How are you supposed to watch arguably the biggest Tigers game of the year when you’re stuck at work? Even more upsetting? Today’s game only be televised on MLB Network. How are you supposed to watch the game if you’re a ! cable subscriber? It’s a problem. But I think I can help. Hear me out for a second. I’m sitting the press box right now at Comerica Park. Let me be your eyes and ears. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. Want to know how Jhonny Peralta looks left field today? I’ll tell you. And what about Miguel Cabrera? Yep, I’ll clue you on that, too. I know, it’s not ideal, but it is what it is. So, let me help.
