The Kansas City Chiefs made one of this year’s surprise splashes by landing Sammy Watkins.


Watkins is a great deep threat in an offense that needs some spacing, but it’s time to think about adding some insurance behind quarterback Patrick Mahomes II now that Alex Smith is suiting up in Washington as the Kirk Cousins’ replacement.

So they do have options. They’re not in a bad spot.

The 2018 draft could change completely depending on this pick.

Colts fleeced the Jets The Colts look like the big winners of this trade upon initial examination.

The Jets paid heavily to move up just three spots, proving there truly is quarterback tax when it comes to draft trade-ups.

Of course, if New York ends up selecting a quarterback who turns into a franchise player, the price will be forgotten.

The Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles presumably have zero regrets about their 2016 trade-ups to grab Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, respectively.

Still, it was a risky and aggressive move for New York, but likely one that needed to happen after whiffing on Christian Hackenberg and failing to convince Kirk Cousins to join them over the Minnesota Vikings.

Oklahoma State’s Dean Heil, Illinois’ Isaiah Martinez, Penn State’s Zain Retherford and Ohio State’s Kyle Snyder will all have the opportunity to become three-time national champions when the 2018 NCAA Championships are wrestled in Cleveland at Quicken Loans Arena on March 15-17.

Lions are set up to draft a RB even after signing LeGarrette Blount


The Lions ended their free-agency silence by signing LeGarrette Blount on Friday night.
Women's Elite Joe Hawley White Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Road #68 NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Nike
It’s a move that lands them a power runner with a Super Bowl pedigree. It should help in the present, but it also could fall right in line with future plans.

By approaching it with layers, Quinn made Detroit less predictable to similarly interested teams, more capable of trading back and better suited to ease in whatever back it finds. The third point is the most important because fixing a running game isn’t as simple as drafting a rookie and giving him the ball. Kamara dominated in New Orleans because he got to be the change of pace to Mark Ingram’s between-the-tackles work. In Kansas City, Hunt was like the final piece to a highly schemed, speed-based offense that needed a downhill banger.

The process is more complicated in Detroit, which hasn’t had a 100-yard rusher in four whole years. It’ll take a village to raise this child, and with seasoned offensive line coaches in Jeff Davidson and Hank Fraley and with a two-time Super Bowl winner in Blount, you’re starting to see the buildings Quinn is putting in place.

More targets for Garoppolo wouldn’t be a bad idea, and the 49ers have been linked to wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, according to NFL Media’s Michael Silver.

Pryor isn’t the only option, but a motivated wideout on a prove-it deal working toward an extension with a rising organization should lead to good things.

That’s a problem.

We could go a few different ways, but most important is Bronson Kaufusi Authentic Jersey making sure Russell Wilson stays healthy. The man took 43 sacks, attempted 553 passes and led the team in rushing with 95 carries for 586 yards last year.

MLB free agent rumors: Yankees still in the picture for 3B Mike Moustakas


Mens Kayvon Webster Jersey
The Yankees would love to have free agent third baseman Mike Moustakas in their lineup, and they have been in contact with him in recent days, according to FanRag Sports, but there are several hurdles preventing New York from signing him up.

Furthermore, the Yankees are expected to go after Manny Machado in free agency in 2018-19 and hope to sign him up to a long-term deal. If they were to sign Moustakas to a multi-year deal, that would hinder their pursuit of the Orioles’ star both on the field and monetarily.

He ranks third on the team’s all-time list of games played, at 212, and is in line to pace to pass longtime center Dominic Raiola (219) next season,Muhlbach was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Baltimore Ravens in Grady Jarrett Womens Jersey 2004, but was released by the team just before the regular season.
Cincinnati Reds Game Jersey
The Lions signed him two months later as a mid-season injury replacement,Detroit brought in competition for Muhlbach in 2016, drafting long snapper Jimmy Landes in the sixth round.

But the veteran fended off the challenge for his job back-to-back offseasons.

Landes was released last June.

The Rangers have been in the market for relievers and starters this offseason. They are one of five teams still awaiting Yu Darvish’s decision as the 2018 season nears.

Robinson’s new deal with the Saints is for four years and $20 million.

On one hand, nobody thought Robinson was even worth $1 million last year, and the majority of his career suggests that he hasn’t been good enough to justify a long-term deal.

On the other, this isn’t a huge deal for a slot cornerback, and with Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley on the outside, the Saints should have the ability to keep Robinson in the slot.

This is a risky move for New Orleans, but it’s also defensible given how well Robinson played in 2017.

LB Demario Davis, Saints Grade: C- The Saints also bought on a career year from another player who had a breakout 2017 season.

Raiders cut Sean Smith; CB to be sentenced to prison for assault


The Oakland Raiders released Sean Smith amid news that the cornerback will plead guilty to a felony assault charge Tuesday and be sentenced to one year in prison.
Customized 2014 World Cup USA Replica White Home Youth Nike Soccer Jersey
The Raiders also released starting right tackle Marshall Newhouse on Monday.

He was at peace with his life, Fowler said. He had redefined his career and he went out almost on his own terms.

The two prevalent themes were baseball, which was Enberg’s first love, and his fondness for summing up big moments with his call of Oh, my!

Enberg was the voice of UCLA basketball for nine seasons, a span in which the Bruins won eight of their 10 national titles under John Womens Zaza Pachulia Jersey Wooden.

San Diego native Bill Walton said in a video tribute that Enberg’s broadcasts were critical in him wanting to go to UCLA.

Authentic Taylor Decker Jersey Dick created this remarkable atmosphere, Walton said. When the game was over, we would go into a shower room to get cleaned up and we’d talk about the game, ‘Hey, how many Oh mys do you think we got from Dick tonight?’

The Browns will give up a third-round pick, No. 65 overall, for Taylor, according to the source.

The Packers stuck by Randall after his benching, even though there was some serious discussion within the organization about whether to cut him. He played some of his best football in the games that followed, with three of his four interceptions coming in the three games that immediately followed his benching.

Green Bay used its top overall pick last offseason on cornerback Kevin King, who was the 33rd overall pick, a selection the Packers got in a draft-day trade with the Browns.

It’s also possible that 2016 first-round pick Corey Coleman might have ended up in the slot, given that the 5-foot-11 Coleman hasn’t yet emerged as a useful weapon on the outside. Injuries and poor quarterback play have unquestionably stunted Coleman’s growth, but this is also a receiver who has caught 56 of the 131 targets thrown his way over the past two seasons, producing a catch rate of just 42.7 percent.

Top Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres likely to start season in minors


Top Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres, perhaps too eager to impress, appears headed to the minors to start the season, the New York Daily News reported.

Torres, 21, is returning this spring from season-ending Tommy John surgery on his left (non-throwing) elbow last June.

In 2012, the Pirates traded their best pitcher, Joel Hanrahan, for a package of players that included underachieving reliever Mark Melancon. In 2016, they traded their best pitcher, Melancon, for a package of players that included underachieving reliever Felipe Rivero. In 2018, they traded their best pitcher, Gerrit Cole, for a package of players that included underachieving reliever Michael Feliz.

Feliz stumbled to a 5.63 ERA in 2017, but half of his 30 earned runs came in just three appearances. A .381 BABIP and 15.1 HR/FB percentage certainly did not help his cause, so he could greatly benefit from having those metrics dip to the league norms. Feliz has one of the most electric fastballs in the division, sitting at 95-97 mph with a 27.2 percent Whiff/Swing ratio, according to Baseball Prospectus. That pitch, paired with a potentially plus slider, could make him Rivero’s set-up man in the near future.

Crawford’s most touted, reliable and developed skill is his plate discipline. As a minor leaguer, Crawford consistently posted a double-digit BB%, a trend that continued during his cup of coffee in 2017: his walk rate of 18.4 percent was fourth best in the majors among players with at least 80 PA, trailing Joey Votto, Mike Trout and Aaron Judge.

While that figure may be unsustainable given Crawford’s level of production on balls in play over the same period (.214 BA, .300 SLG) as pitchers will be more aggressive in the zone, most projection systems peg Crawford for a considerable bounce-back with the bat and a sustained walk rate of around 12.1 percent.

Both are graduates from the top of prospect lists, and both are young middle infielders with superb discipline. It’s not hard to project one as being similar to the other going into 2018.

Draymond Green, Le’Veon Bell discuss Michigan State scandal aftermath


Draymond Green has a message for his alma mater.

The Warriors forward opened his postgame press conference on Saturday by discussing the recent scandals at Michigan State, where he played under coach Tom Izzo from 2008-12.

Fellow alumni and Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell also shared his thoughts at Pro Bowl practice on Saturday, saying he “felt bad for everything that happened to all the women” and insisted that Dantonio “do everything the right way.”

“I’m obviously hoping for a turnaround. I mean, it’s kind of a big target on our back right now. I just kinda wanna be a supporter, the best that I can,” Bell said. “And I want Michigan State to be the top of the class — basketball, football, all that, all athletics — make things go the right way. This can kinda go down the line, and people kinda forget about it because we did a lot of positive things more so than negative things coming out of the university.”

Michigan State, which has already seen the resignations of university president Lou Anna Simon and athletic director Mark Hollis, is facing multiple Title IX lawsuits and is under federal investigation.

The comment came after Oliver Maroney of Dime and Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported that Aaron Gordon, Victor Oladipo, Larry Nance Jr. and Dennis Smith Jr. had accepted invitations to participate in this year’s edition of the high-flying competition. However, both Smith and Nance took to Twitter to refute the initial reports.

The odds of Adebayo ever becoming the type of big man who can average between 15-20 points per game are slim, and yet he doesn’t have to improve much offensively to become a starter for a team like the Heat because of how well he complements playmakers. He can generate enough scoring for himself off rolls, cuts and putbacks — three plays that don’t require him to dominate the ball in any fashion — and he has the skill set to develop into a threat from midrange and on face-ups.

One of the ways Adebayo can make up for his limitations as a scorer is with his passing. He currently leads all rookie centers with 49 assists, and he’s averaging 3.6 assists per 100 possessions on the season. The latter puts him ahead of a number of All-Star-caliber centers, including Karl-Anthony Towns (3.1), Anthony Davis (3.0) and Kevin Love (2.9).

NBA trade rumors: Trail Blazers express interest in DeAndre Jordan


The DeAndre Jordan sweepstakes are heating up.

The Clippers and Trail Blazers have discussed a trade involving the coveted center, though a formal offer has yet to be made, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Bridges’ lefty mechanics are smooth and repeatable, although he doesn’t get a ton of lift on his jumper. He is more than a spot-up threat, though. After averaging 1.292 points per possession (92nd percentile) on 24 off-screen plays as a freshman, his volume has already doubled this season, per Synergy. Despite lower efficiency, Bridges shows good footwork and nice balance when shooting on the move:

Assuming he continues to improve as a mobile shooter, Bridges has the potential to feature a well-rounded offensive game given his success beating closeouts from spot-up situations. This season, he’s averaging 1.467 points per possession (94th percentile) when getting to the basket in those spots, per Synergy:

Smith’s diminishing skill set seems to have run its course in Cleveland. Maybe he would benefit from a change in scenery — possibly Los Angles in exchange for DeAndre Jordan or Phoenix in return for Tyson Chandler — as the Cavs need help on the boards with Kevin Love out eight weeks.

“He knows other teams are interested in him,” Mychal Thompson said. “(But) he would love to retire a Warrior, so I think he’s planning on staying. But it’s not up to him, as far as he’s concerned. He loves playing with the Warriors. He knows they have something special going on there and he wants to be a part of it, long into the future.”


The Kings blew a lead late in the fourth quarter but outscored the Nets 16-11 in the extra period to end a five-game losing streak.


Spencer Dinwiddie’s bucket with 1:22 left gave Brooklyn a 111-110 lead before Bogdanovic drove into traffic near the baseline and pulled up for the basket that gave the Kings the lead for good.

After Dinwiddie missed a 3-pointer, Buddy Hield made a pair of free throws to make it 114-111. Bogdanovic sank two free throws after D’Angelo Russell also missed a 3-pointer.

“It came down to who had the grit to go get rebounds and loose balls,” Fox said. “It’s always great playing these games, games that come to the wire. I feel like we made the correct plays.”

“You just try to make it as hard as you can,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “James, his ability to score from behind the arc, drive the ball and then get to the foul line, he’s as good as anybody. You can’t count on one guy to do that; you have to throw as many bodies at him as possible. And he’s going to make some plays.”

Using a 16-4 run out of halftime, Golden State won for the seventh time in eight games by beating the Wizards 109-101 as Kevin Durant scored 32 points, Stephen Curry added 25, and Klay Thompson helped limit Bradley Beal to eight Wednesday night, a day after the Warriors took schoolkids to a museum instead of visiting President Donald Trump at the White House.

Asked for the secret to such success at the outset of the second half, Kerr couldn’t help but respond with a joke.

“Mainly fiery halftime speeches from the coach — Knute Rockne style, `win one for (assistant) Ron Adams’ type speeches,” Kerr said with a chuckle. “No, it’s not about adjustments. It’s about our guys, I think, just wanting to make a push coming out of the break. I can’t really explain it other than throwing that at you.”

The Blazers trailed the Wolves by 10 points late in the third quarter.
