A.J. Green Jersey senses new ‘vibe’ from Bengals, retained coach Marvin Lewis

Three years after making a major dietary change, A.J. Green feels so strongly about the supplement he now uses (Rockin’ Protein) that the star Bengals wide receiver has become a company spokesman.
Youth Nike Limited Denver Broncos Navy Blue Jersey: NFL Customized Vapor Untouchable Alternate
Unlike other (products), this doesn’t give you a real full feeling, Green told Sporting News during a telephone interview Tuesday. It tastes great and sits well in my stomach.

The same couldn’t be said of Cincinnati’s 2017 season for Green, the rest of the franchise or a downtrodden fan base that is gassed from supporting a club without a playoff win for 27 seasons and counting.

I mean, you’ve seen what he can do on TV, said Hurst, the Ravens’ first first-round pick, so it’s just exciting (for me) to get your hands on somebody and let him do what he does in space.”

That ability, Harbaugh said, will be experimented with as time goes on and they find ways to get Jackson the ball other than at quarterback 鈥?even as they insisted when they drafted him that he was there to play that position, period. Joe Flacco is the starter until further notice, of course, but for now that clearly doesn’t mean they won’t be out there together at times.

It’s pretty cool to me, Jackson said of the idea of lining him up at other positions. They want me on the field, use a lot of my talent, and be a quarterback, so it’s cool to me.

The Journal cited Jones’ deposition in the collusion grievance brought by free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose pregame protests against police brutality Reggie Nelson Jersey and racial injustice began during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Per the Journal, Jones said in his deposition that Trump told him in a phone call, ‘This is a very winning, strong issue for me. Tell everybody, you can’t win this one. This one lifts me.’

KAEPERNICK CASE: Teams reportedly saw QB as a starter

Jones also said that Trump didn’t deserve that much credit for influencing owners, But I recognize he’s the president of the United States.

The Journal also cited depositions given by Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and Texans owner Robert McNair as further evidence of Trump’s influence on the owners’ decision at their spring meeting in Atlanta earlier this month to order players to stand for the anthem if they are on the field for its playing. Players have the option to stay in the locker room for the anthem.

I was totally supportive of (the players) until Trump made his statement, Ross said in his deposition, per the Journal. Ross was referring to Trump’s saying at a rally in Alabama last September that son of a bitch players should be taken off the field for protesting.

Game Tomas Tatar Jersey I thought he changed the dialogue, Ross added.

Seahawks sign Rashaad Penny to his rookie deal

Another first-round pick is under contract as the Seahawks announced they signed running back Rashaad Penny, the 27th overall selection.

Penny, who led the nation in rushing at San Diego State last season, became only the second first-round pick for the Seahawks in the past six drafts.

He rushed for 3,266 yards the past two seasons and caught 34 passes for 359 yards.

Especially Curry, who snapped out of his slump with four in the second half.

“I’ve seen those explosions happen everywhere, not just here,” Green said. “His 3 is similar to some people’s dunk. You go to certain arenas and a guy gets a dunk it’s just absurd. That’s how his 3 ball is. … Don’t mean to disappoint, but I’ve seen crazier from him.”

Harden had 20 points and nine assists, while Chris Paul added 13 points and 10 rebounds as they combined to shoot just 12 for 32.

During a fan forum conference call, Suggs said he thought he and quarterback Joe Flacco would remain key parts of the franchise for years to come.

“To be totally honest with you, I don’t see my peak in my near future,” Suggs said, via Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. “The answer to your question is yes. We’re definitely going to be two major, key parts of the leadership on this team. We also have other leaders, but from an offensive and defensive standpoint, absolutely. We take that very seriously. We take pride in that. We’re looking forward to doing some special things this year.

“I’ve said this before: It’s a trip to get to do it all again. I love playing ball. I love being Sizzle. When the time comes for me to just be a full-time dad, a full-time actor, writer, director, producer, I will do all that. But right now, it’s flock. Go flock, Ravens nation.”

Warriors’ Steve Kerr Jersey wins Rudy Tomjanovich Award for second time

Golden State’s Steve Kerr has won the Rudy Tomjanovich Award, given to an NBA coach in recognition of his cooperation with media and fans as well as excellence on the court.
Men's Replica Majestic Jim Palmer Black Alternate Jersey - #22 MLB Baltimore Orioles Cool Base
The Professional Basketball Writers Association announced the winner Tuesday. The award is named for Tomjanovich, the former Houston Rockets coach.

Kerr, who also won the award in 2015, beat fellow finalists Brad Stevens of Boston, Mike D’Antoni of Houston, Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers and Steve Clifford of Charlotte in voting by PBWA members.

Not only has Reaves found a way to stay in this league, but he has become a beloved player on one of the NHL’s best stories. He was also a star in a Western Conference finals clincher — in the city he grew up in, where his father, Willard, won the Canadian Football League’s Most Outstanding Player Award in 1984 — and that’s something he’ll always be able to cherish.

Kaepernick remains without a job after not getting any offers in 2017.

You know, I’ve seen those explosions happen here and everywhere, said Draymond Authentic Michel Briere Jersey Green, who provided 10 points, a game-high 17 boards and six assists. It’s not just here. Nonetheless, definitely get a lot of support from the fans. His 3 is similar to some people’s dunk. You go to certain arenas and a guy gets a dunk and it’s just absurd. That’s how his 3-ball is. But definitely a lot of support. The fans were great tonight. I think he had a great quarter there in that third quarter. I don’t mean to disappoint, but I’ve seen crazier from him, but it was good to see.
Elite Mens Bradley McDougald Jersey
Curry thrived despite a Rockets game plan that continued to target him on the defensive end, a strategy that had seemed to work in tiring him out in Games 1 and 2.

Curry was the primary defender on 15 plays in Game 3, tied for the second most by a Warriors player with Kevon Looney behind Green’s 17.

In Game 2, the Rockets targeted Curry on 23 possessions, the most he has been targeted in a game this postseason. He was the primary defender on 20 plays in Game 1.

With Curry getting picked on defensively for the series’ first two games, it was Harden’s turn Sunday.

Devon Travis Jersey recalled by Blue Jays from Triple-A Buffalo

Second baseman Devon Travis has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo by the Toronto Blue Jays, one day after shortstop Richard Urena was optioned to the International League club.
Elite Quenton Nelson Youth Road White Nike Jersey - #56 NFL Indianapolis Colts Vapor Untouchable
Travis was demoted after hitting .148 in 18 games with Toronto. He batted .210 in 64 plate appearances during 14 games in the minors. Travis is coming off an injury-plagued 2017 season in which he played just 50 games.

Travis Jankowski (L), 27 percent, San Diego Padres at Washington Nationals (RHP Jeremy Hellickson): Jankowski is collecting base hits right and left lately with a .400 AVG in his past nine games and five stolen bases. All of sudden he’s tied for the ninth-highest SB total (7) in just 73 plate appearances, far fewer than everyone tied or ahead of him. Obviously, he’s riding hot with the batting average and his .533 BABIP over the last week will not hold, but we only need him on base once to get our money’s worth if he continues to run wild like this.

Archer goes up against his former teammate and mentor, David Price, and neither pitcher has performed at the level they’re needing as their ERAs are up nearly and exactly a full run from last season.

Archer is 3-3 with 5.01 ERA (up from 4.07 last year) and last pitched against the Red Sox on Opening Day, lasting six innings and giving up four runs on six hits in what ended up a Rays win.

For his career though, Boston has been a nemesis for Archer, who is 2-12 with a 5.49 ERA against the Red Sox, with one of those wins coming in April of last season and the other in his first start against Boston.

Boston’s Mookie Betts is 12-for-34 with four home runs and 10 RBI versus Archer while Xander Bogaerts is 11-for-33 with 11 strikeouts.
Game Youth Patrick Eaves Jersey
Price (4-4, Ryan Ellis Womens Jersey 4.38) had a 3.38 ERA last year, though he’s now coming off his best outing of the season, a complete-game gem, allowing only five hits and two earned runs, striking out eight and walking none against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday.

Vance Joseph: Paxton Lynch can ‘relax’ with Case Keenum Jersey entrenched as starter

The Denver Broncos still have faith in quarterback Paxton Lynch, and coach Vance Joseph is making that clear.
Women's Nike Green Bay Packers #5 Paul Hornung Limited Olive/Camo 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
With the addition of Case Keenum, Lynch won’t be competing to be the team’s starting quarterback in 2018, and Joseph thinks that will be a huge help. Now entering his third season, Joseph believes Lynch can focus on improving as a quarterback rather than battling to win a job.

Alex Lewis Authentic Jersey What Edmunds lacks in football refinement, he makes up for with effort. Last season alone, he amassed 108 tackles, 14.0 tackles for a loss, 5.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.
Limited Womens Trai Turner Jersey
With Preston Brown out, Edmunds should step into the starting role at middle linebacker. However, he is a do-it-all player who can slide into any linebacker slot if needed and also rush the quarterback off the edge.

A lot of people have been talking about Pat Shurmur coming in, and we know the success that he was able to have in Minnesota, but people aren’t talking enough about Mike Shula, who was the offensive coordinator in Carolina who was able to use Christian McCaffrey Kenyan Drake Youth jersey unbelievably last year. Add that Saquon Barkley piece along with an upgraded offensive line and Eli Manning, a veteran quarterback like he is, I know it’s going to be a completely different season and it’s going to be an incredibly competitive football team.

Notre Dame will even tell you that McGlinchey is better on the right side than the left side, one AFC executive said, per NFL Media’s Lance Zierlein. He’s just more comfortable and consistent there, so that’s probably where you play him. I think everyone tries to beat him up too much. He’s going to play in our league and be a decent starter.

Here’s the thing, though. Defensive coordinators don’t just line up their best pass-rushers opposite left tackles anymore. Sack artists move around formations, and if a defense is lucky, it has book-end pass-rushers anyway.

Protecting the quarterback’s right is as important as it’s ever been, which is why right tackles are starting to get high-end money in free agency.

McGlinchey will be an immediate starter, and he’ll help make the line in front of new franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo better. However, he is going to have some growing pains, and fans shouldn’t expect a Pro Bowl presence in Year 1.

Report: Donald Penn ‘in great shape’ after season-ending surgery

It’s been a whirlwind of an offseason to this point for Oakland Raiders starting left tackle Donald Penn. Much of it, though, hasn’t exactly been positive.

And now, with everything seemingly turning back to football, there’s actually some positive news on the Penn front, and this was certainly needed.

The end result was the same: a reinforcement of the O.J. Simpson model but on an even more public stage — there was no advantage to identifying with being black. That came with responsibility. Take, for example, the time when Woods was hitting supernova status, the most talked-about athlete in America. He had just won the Masters, and now, as his father predicted, he would “move mountains.” It was an unsubtle comparison to Ali, a wish to join the Heritage. It was all coming together.

It was also 1997, the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson entering the majors. The Jackie Robinson Foundation contacted Woods, asking him to participate in the celebration at a Mets game, side by side with Rachel Robinson. Woods demurred. He said he was busy. He said he had an overwhelming number of commitments to his sponsor, Nike.

I try not to even worry about that, Martin said. I need to make every rep count that I get. I’m doing what the coaches tell me to do, being in the playbook and taking this environment in.

Mincamps — with no pads and no tackling — are designed for running backs to shine, and Martin looked good hitting his holes and catching passes during his first NFL practice.

Competing in everything I do helped me, Martin said. The film doesn’t lie. There were a lot of ups and downs at Rutgers, but when you press play on the film I’m going to give it 110 percent every chance I get.

Including on kickoff and punt teams, which he played even as Rutgers’ starting running back.

I played defense in high school, so I have no problem hitting anybody, Martin said with a big smile. I’m trying to do whatever I can to get my foot in the door.

Martin finished 10th in Rutgers history with 2,256 rushing yards and ran for 18 touchdowns, but his two best seasons were his first two playing in a pro-style offense similar to the Giants’ scheme under first-year head coach Pat Shurmur.

NEED TO KNOW: Pity the Raptors. After coming into these playoffs with title hopes, Toronto has again been unable to solve LeBron James. In the last 15 matchups where the Raptors have faced James, they’re 1-14 and are now on the brink of being ousted by the Cavs for the third straight season.

League policy does not prohibit demonstrating during the anthem. Referring to the labor agreement with the league, the union notes that NFL rules Donte Moncrief Authentic Jersey supersede any conflicting club rules. The union also says at least one club owner has asked pre-employment interview questions about a player’s intent to demonstrate. We believe these questions are improper, given league policy. That team reportedly is the Cincinnati Bengals. Considered one of the top safeties in the league, Reid played out his contract with San Francisco last season.

McKinnie claims the Vikings and the Chiefs had secretly teamed up to pay him (the 7th pick) and Ryan Sims (the 6th pick) less than the Cowboys paid Roy Williams (the 8th pick).

Despite his pedigree, Manning sits as the biggest question mark on that piece of paper. The 37-year-old old is coming off two blas茅 seasons, averaging fewer than seven yards per attempt in each. Importing Pat Shurmur, who worked wonders with a Minnesota Vikings offense similarly stacked with talent, along with the upgraded weaponry and better protection should aid the aging quarterback.

If the Giants struggle to move the ball in 2018, the Manning defenders will be out of excuses for the two-time Super Bowl MVP.

Limited Kids Hector Rondon Jersey Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel was reportedly hospitalized Monday in Humble, Texas,聽after having an adverse reaction to a medication, according to TMZ Sports.

It seems like he had a reaction to an adjustment in his prescription, a Manziel representative,聽Denise Michaels, told TMZ.聽He’s fine and headed home.

Limited Kids James Bradberry Jersey Manziel, 25, was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft but was out of the league after just two seasons with the team as poor play and off-field concerns ultimately cut his career short.

Teammate: Ereck Flowers Jersey staying away because his feelings are hurt

It’s not hard to figure out why Ereck Flowers isn’t thrilled with the Giants at the moment, even if it doesn’t explain his absence.
Youth Reebok Nicklas Lidstrom Premier White Away NHL Jersey: Detroit Red Wings #5
The former first-rounder was replaced at left tackle when the team signed Nate Solder in free agency, and Flowers has stayed away from the team’s voluntary workouts since then.

Freeman’s only competition for snaps in Denver are underwhelming third-year back Devontae Booker and 2017 sixth-rounder De’Angelo Henderson. He has limited upside as a receiver, but shouldn’t be short carry opportunities in Denver’s new-look offense. Freeman will begin his career as a fringe RB2 option.
Limited Mens Nino Niederreiter Jersey
The Steelers took a step toward securing a successor to Ben Roethlisberger on Friday by selecting Rudolph. The Oklahoma State product flew under the radar throughout most of the draft process, but there’s a ton to like. Consider Rudolph’s efficiency last season: 65 percent completion rate (fifth best among combine invites), 10.0 YPA (second), 9.0 percent off-target rate (sixth), 170.6 QB rating (second), 84.9 total QBR (third) and 11.3 aDOT (second).

Rudolph O. J. Howard Jersey sports a massive frame (6-foot-5, 235 pounds) and is an accurate thrower, but arm strength is a question mark. Rudolph is a pocket passer, adding little with his legs. Barring a Roethlisberger injury, he won’t see the field in 2018 and is no more than a deep dynasty stash.

Horton took Bortles’ wallet 鈥?and would have taken the truck if it hadn’t been blocked in by other cars. So Horton then entered the house, and the invited guests realized that he shouldn’t have been there. So Bortles detained his and called police. Examination of surveillance video then revealed what Horton had been up to.

Limited Mens Nelson Agholor Jersey It’s unclear whether Bortles possesses any superpowers. Chris Simms would say that, if he does, they have nothing to do with throwing a football. Regardless, not all heroes wear two-tone helmets.

Lions trade Akeem Spence Jersey to Miami

The Lions have agreed to trade defensive tackle Akeem Spence to the Dolphins, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports.
Men's Nike Denver Broncos #29 Bradley Roby Elite Orange Throwback NFL Jersey
Kids David Andrews Jersey Over in the Minnesota-Houston series, Jeff Teague can’t even enter the ball to Karl-Anthony Towns. He’s a less skilled, less adventurous passer than Rubio. He’s also playing with a lot of non-shooters, and against a smart defense. Over and over, Towns has drawn Womens Sammie Coates Jersey a switch, cut down the middle, and not received the ball. Commentators have bemoaned the death of post play.
Kids Michael Frolik Jersey
They had good reason after Game 1. Towns barely bothered trying to post up mismatches. He has embraced something of a mean streak since. No mean streak can make up for help defenders parking themselves in Towns’ lap:

Posting up in the middle of the paint is trickier than it looks — even if Towns had tried to plow Eric Gordon under the rim, as Favors did with Westbrook. (Maybe he should have tried, though?) Bigs have to get in and get out. Help defenders lurk from all sides. The biggest among them — P.J. Tucker especially — have seized chances to tag little guys out of the post, and take on Towns. Houston has seized chances to execute a second switch, and rescue smaller guards from the block.

We鈥檒l show you the selections made by Simms and by me, if you check out the video. Feel free to share your own thoughts below regarding the selections that were made, or to chime in with any others we may have missed.

With Moore and Ridley gone, the Cowboys shouldn’t hesitate to look a few miles away and take Sutton as their Dez Bryant replacement. He has the frame to finish in the red zone and the hands and leaping ability to help him make big plays downfield. In essence, it’s Dallas getting an Alshon Jeffery-type of receiver for Dak Prescott.

The Lions need to go defense in their first draft with Matt Patricia. Landry is the kind of versatile pass-rusher who would be coveted by Patricia’s former team, the Patriots. Detroit needs more pop opposite Ziggy Ansah in a division that now has Kirk Cousins and Mitchell Trubisky on the rise behind Aaron Rodgers.

Like during Sunday’s Game 1, when Khris Middleton’s overtime-forcing heave could have broken the Celtics’ spirit.

Ian Kennedy (R), rostered in 23 percent of ESPN leagues, Kansas City Royals vs. Milwaukee Brewers: Kennedy had his first tough start of the season last time out, allowing six runs (four earned) thanks to a pair of homers allowed, but he had a 1.00 ERA in his first three starts, going exactly six innings in all three. Kennedy has always been a solid strikeout arm and the Brewers have the league’s highest strikeout rate since the start of 2017. Thankfully he gets the Brewers at home instead of at Milwaukee, too, so his chronic home run issue shouldn’t be as big of a problem.

The 22-year-old delivered a 2.65 ERA and 9.2 K/9 over 18 Triple-A starts, and he posted five innings of one-run ball with nine whiffs against the Brewers in his lone big league start earlier this month. Against a Pirates club that’s been struggling over the last couple of weeks with a .298 wOBA that ranks No. 24 in baseball, Flaherty is one of Saturday’s more enticing streaming options.

Walker Buehler (R), 23 percent, Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Dodgers: There are so many quality streamers today, we’ll offer up a bonus arm. Buehler, who tossed five scoreless frames against Miami in his big league debut on Monday, is slated to start in one of Saturday’s two games against San Francisco. This is another favorable matchup for the rookie right-hander, as the Giants have been non-threatening against righties this year, producing a .299 wOBA and 25 percent strikeout rate. It’s unlikely Buehler goes deep into this game, but the upside is intriguing. It’s likely he’ll be sent back to the minors after Saturday’s outing, so enjoy him while you can.

Traded for All-Star Kyrie Irving, who flirted with a 50/40/90 season despite playing on a bothersome left knee that eventually required season-ending surgery.

Adding top-end talent like Hayward and Irving was supposed to deplete Boston’s depth. But Boston’s youngest players have routinely stepped up this season, including in big-time situations.

Instead, Boston — spearheaded by emerging third-year guard Rozier — came out and finished off its win.

“Sometimes I think they’re at their best when those things happen, you know?” Stevens said after Game 1. “I think it’s just a resilient group of kids.

Greg Holland has yet to register a save this season, but the first one could be coming soon. After a rough start, the right-hander has now had four straight scoreless appearances, with five strikeouts and only one hit allowed. canucks_012
