Odell Beckham’s doing everything this spring for new contract

May

With other receivers from his draft class landing lucrative deals, the Giants star is out to prove he deserves a long-term contract.

The star receiver ran smoothly and without a limp before spending the rest of practice watching from the sideline.

Alex Anzalone Jersey He can’t fully compete yet, [but] he gets a chance to see it, Shurmur said. And there is a lot to be learned by watching. It’s good to have him here.

The only notable Giants player who did not attend Monday’s voluntary OTA was veteran defensive tackle Damon Harrison. Shurmur said Harrison has been at the facility some this offseason and he knew why Harrison wasn’t there this week.

Detlef Schrempf Elite Jersey Anyway, the impressive thing with that swing was staying back on the breaking ball from the left side of the plate. The switch-hitting Albies always has been much better from the right side. In the minors last year, he had a .956 OPS from the right side and .730 from the left side. He’s crushed lefties so far in 2018 with a .407 average and five home runs in 54 at-bats. But from the left side he’s now at a Joe Mullen Womens Jersey respectable .242/.301/.503.

So the question of the moment: Which young second baseman do you like the most? You know, if you had to choose one or your dog would run away, or if you’re starting a team from scratch and can pick only one, or just because it’s a fun question to contemplate. Torres is just 25 days older, so we’re talking two 21-year-olds who are going to make a lot of All-Star teams in their careers.

Since I love my dogs, I’ll make a choice and go with Torres. Two things I like from him so far: He has a little more patient approach than Albies and I think that eventually turns into higher OBPs, and his defense looks great at second base (plus-5 defensive runs saved already). When I was in Yankee camp in spring training, the team raved about his hands and instincts on defense, plus his arm strength. He can play shortstop, and he’s at second base only because the Yankees have Didi Gregorius, but Torres could eventually end up back at shortstop. For now, we have a great debate brewing. Who do you have?

D’Antoni believes the 6-foot-10 Capela’s ability to switch on guards as well as defend in the paint will be a key in this series.

The Golden State Warriors, led by guard Stephen Curry, meet the Houston Rockets, led by guards James Harden and Chris Paul, in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs, best-of-seven Western Conference Finals on Monday, May 14, 2018 (5/14/18) at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Everybody always wants to point out me and James, but he’s the X-factor, Paul said.

Houston is 50-5 this season in games where all three have played, and during the regular season the Rockets outscored their opponents in those games by an average of 11.5 points.

It’s a must that you have to have (someone like him) against Golden State or they’re going to get you, he said.

This will help. They’re still going to get us to Cody Hodgson Jersey a certain degree, but hopefully we can lessen it more than if we just had a traditional center that can’t guard on the perimeter.

With Donald Penn on the roster, it would make sense for Oakland to start Miller at right tackle. However, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden sounds as if he wants to give him a shot to beat out Penn on the left side of the line.

That’s where he has recently played, Gruden said of Miller, per Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. We like him at left tackle.

The problem with starting Miller at left tackle is he isn’t athletic enough to make up for his NFL inexperience. Miller isn’t a high-upside prospect, and he isn’t going to be a high-level player early on, either.

His tape tells you exactly who he is, one AFC scout said of Miller, per Zierlein. He’s big and he’s got decent length, but he’s an average athlete and he will always be up and down depending on the guy across from him. I think he’ll start, but I don’t see anything special.

Rasul Douglas saw significant time on the field as a rookie, but the team drafted Sidney Jones in the second round of the same draft with plans for him to eventually lead the secondary. At his pro day, he suffered a聽torn Achilles聽that nearly kept him out an entire year. The Washington product only took 29 snaps in the season finale against the Cowboys.聽

The two men were fired the following month. The men claim the reason they were given was that all of the coaches wanted them fired.

Richardson’s last employe evaluation earned him a score of 2.8 out of 5, with one coach scoring him 1, the lowest, in every category, Richardson claimed.

Authentic Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey Who’s next: Donald is the NFL’s reigning defensive player of the year and a first-team all-pro each of the past three seasons. He’s been angling for his payday since last year, when Philip Rivers Jersey his training camp holdout caused him to miss the regular-season opener. Loaded with cap space in 2019, it’s basically a foregone conclusion the Rams will soon make Donald, who’s set to hit free agency after this season, the best-compensated defensive player in league history.

It’s incredible, Lee said, via quotes distributed by the team. It just motivates me to continue to do what I’ve always done and continue to set goals for myself. It definitely made it feel more real. I didn’t know to expect, or what I was going to feel, but that was a big-time, goal-of-mine, dream-come-true moment. Those are always good.

The thing you know about those Alabama guys is that football is important to them, Harbaugh said. They understand the value of competing every day at practice and working hard in the offseason. They understand pressure and that you have to do things right, that there is a line and you can’t go below it if you want to be successful and be on the field.

They know everything is earned. I don’t think they come in with any sort of entitlement. To me, that’s a credit to coach Saban.

Limited Kids Paul Martin Jersey Saban established a track record of grooming NFL talent during previous head coaching stints at Luc Mbah a Moute Youth jersey Michigan State and LSU, but since returning to the college ranks after his time with the Dolphins, Saban has created a factory that runs with as much efficiency as that of the Mercedes-Benz plant located on the outskirts of Tuscaloosa.

The Eagles’ first regular-season game is on September 6, so if he’s fully recovered on the most optimistic side of that 4-6 month estimate, he’d be healed just three days before the season opener. That makes it seem likely that he’ll miss at least part of the regular season.

Last year Jernigan started every regular season game except the Eagles’ meaningless Week 17 game, and he started all three postseason games as well.

Jernigan signed a four-year, $48 million contract extension in November, but the low guarantees on the contract mean he’s not necessarily safe in Philadelphia for long.

As Bauer raises his profile by pitching better on the mound, he’s straying from his cocoon and embracing his surroundings off it. Throwing a baseball is the same solitary pursuit that it has always been. But on the four days between starts, it’s comforting for Bauer to know he’s no longer on an island.

The numbers are a testament to Bauer’s professional growth. He made strides last year, with a career-high 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings, a 3.2 WAR and 17 wins — a number he dismisses as totally irrelevant. Entering Wednesday night’s start against Jon Lester and the Cubs at Progressive Field, Bauer is rolling along with a 2.67 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, .622 OPS against and 27 strikeouts in his first 20 innings.

Zach Fulton and Senio Kelemete are options as the starting guards if the Texans decide to part ways with Allen.

In December, Judge Anita Brody of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, who is presiding over the case, agreed with Seeger’s argument. She voided any agreements that assigned monetary claims to a third party; three companies have appealed that decision.

The team announced the signings of nine of their 11 draft picks Friday morning, including first-round guard Quenton Nelson, the sixth overall pick.

Authentic Kids Adam Humphries Jersey This draft feels befitting of outgoing GM Ozzie Newsome’s Lombardi-plated legacy. Yes, major gamble taking QB Lamar Jackson, but it could pay off in spades 鈥?and may as well get that fifth-year option with a roll of the dice like this after聽Newsome deftly worked back into the end of Round 1. Hayden Hurst, a former minor league pitcher who may be more accurate right now than Jackson (57% completion rate at Louisville), and Mark Andrews form a nifty tight end duo that should pay immediate dividends to Joe Flacco and to Jackson eventually. Third-round T Orlando Brown and fifth-round WR Jordan Lasley are classic risk-reward types. And nice to see Newsome get two more players from his alma mater, fourth-round Alabama CB Anthony Averett and sixth-round C Bradley Bozeman.

Must admire GM Brandon Beane’s aggressiveness in his first draft, as he completed his weeks-long trek up the Ra’Shede Hageman Jersey board to get Wyoming QB Josh Allen at No. 7 before dealing up a second time Thursday night for Virginia Tech LB Tremaine Edmunds at No. 16. Both have massive ceilings聽but should be afforded the patience to develop. Third-round DT Harrison Phillips will become a fan favorite (he somehow managed to make 103 tackles last year from a position not known for staggering numbers).

Shaquem Griffin, the former UCF linebacker with one hand who was taken with the No. 141 overall pick.

Nobody on that list should surprise fans. Three of the top four were picked by teams that call New York home (even if two technically play in New Jersey), and the other was the No. 1 overall pick and reigning Heisman Trophy winner. As for Griffin, he has won plenty of fans with his story聽and has everyone rooting for him.

Rudolph is the highest QB selected by Pittsburgh since Big Ben’s ascendance. Does that make it Roethlisberger’s responsibility to tutor the young thrower?

You know he’s able to play, Big Ben said of Rudolph. Anytime you get guys to come in, you can try to teach him a little bit, it’s a good thing. I’ll do whatever I can to help. I did that with Landry and try to help Dobbs as much as I can. Landry does a great job at that, he did it last year with Dobbs. It’s kind of the backup’s role.

With Roethlisberger still performing at a Pro Bowl level, the Steelers veteran’s leash deserves to be very long in Pittsburgh, but the real question is how long will he be able to hold off Rudolph?

New Orleans wants to balance the run and pass, so Hurst is a natural fit.

Adding him to one of the top offensive lines and best offenses in the league will make things very difficult on opposing defenses. He’ll be able to crack heads as a blocker and then go out and torch defenses off play action.
Women's Reebok Calgary Flames #5 Mark Giordano Premier Red Third NHL Jersey
To me, this pick comes down to Chark or Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward. It wouldn’t hurt to have another downfield playmaker, but that doesn’t fit Blake Bortles’ strengths. I also don’t believe receiver will be a priority for executive vice president Tom Coughlin.

For me, the closest thing to a need for Jacksonville is nickel corner, as the team lost Aaron Colvin during the offseason. This is where Ward comes into play. Ward isn’t my favorite corner in this class, but that’s a reflection on the quality of this corner class and not necessarily a negative on Ward.

NFL Draft 2018: Ryan Shazier walks across stage, announces selection for Steelers

May
04

Baker Mayfield may have earned the spotlight at the NFL Draft, but Ryan Shazier stole the show.

The Steelers’ linebacker made a miraculous walk across the stage at AT&T Stadium Thursday to announce the team’s first-round pick (No. 28), making for one of the most memorable moments in draft history.

“For my name to be in the same sentence as those guys, it means a lot,” Andujar said through an interpreter. “Now I just want to keep doing the same thing, keep hitting.”

Andujar, who celebrated his 23rd birthday last month, wasted little time in placing his name in the Yankees’ record book alongside the two Hall of Famers. On the first pitch he saw from Twins starter Jake Odorizzi, he launched a 373-foot home run deep into Yankee Stadium’s left-field bleachers.

“He’s a really gifted hitter. And he’s gotten comfortable, and now we’re seeing what a gifted hitter can do,” Boone said. “We’ve seen it over the last few days with some good sliders that he’s handled. … kind of pitchers’ pitches, almost, and he’s handling them because he’s able to keep that bat in the hitting zone for so long. It’s one of the things why we think he has a chance to be such a good hitter.”

It’s the latest step in Hardy’s post-NFL career. The pass rusher set a Panthers team record with 15 sacks in 2013 and made second-team All-Pro. But he played only one game in the 2014 season before being placed on the commissioner’s exempt list after being arrested for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Although charges in that case were eventually dropped, Hardy hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2015 season. Hardy pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge in 2016.

UFC president White said in 2016 he’d be open to giving Hardy a shot in the octagon.

“I’m not saying he should be welcomed here,” White said (via MMA-Today). “I’m saying, I’m a guy who believes that if you make a mistake, your life isn’t over forever. When you make mistakes, it’s about how you act from there on out.”

The 6-5, 280-pound Hardy has won all three of his amateur MMA fights by knockout, needing a total of just 142 seconds in the three fights to secure the wins.

New York C.J. Anderson Authentic Jersey had 15 hits, including five doubles and three homers. Every starter except Stanton got at least one hit against the last-place Marlins, who dropped to 4-12.

It wasn’t that weird. I think once I go to Miami that will be pretty weird for me, Stanton said. It was just good to see the guys and, obviously, get a good win.

Judge’s fourth home run this season gave him 60 in 197 games, five fewer than Mark McGwire. New York scored in each of the first five innings and built an 11-0 lead for Luis Severino (3-1), who allowed one hit in six scoreless innings and struck out eight.
