Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home.
Among those 30, Bortles ranks 30th in ANY/A. So far, his numbers alternate from a dumpster fire (in 2014 and 2016) to average (in 2015, with the help of a lot of garbage-time touchdowns, and 2017) on a yearly basis. Somehow, that warranted a three-year, $54 million contract this offseason, which basically guarantees he will play out two years if nothing else (the team only saves $4.5 million in cap space if it releases him next year.)
Williams’ public intoxication arrest this offseason potentially complicates his 2018 roster status even more, but if he isn’t a post-June 1st release, he’s in pretty good shape to see playing time.
While the Broncos have Chris Harris and Bradley Roby on their roster, the loss of Aqib Talib will sting. Talib has started 58 games for Denver over the last four seasons, posting 50 pass deflections and 11 interceptions over that stretch.
For a team that has relied on top-end coverage so long, dropping from Talib’s talent level to the likes of Brendan Langley and Isaac Yiadom, two third-round picks, will be felt on the field. Talib’s trade to the Los Angeles Rams came from a combination of factors, with none larger than the fact that the rookie contract defenders who took Denver to the Super Bowl with Peyton Manning were now veterans raking in cash.
Talib, who has an $11 million salary this year, was a form of cap relief on a team that is increasingly spending more on defenders. For example, pass-rusher Von Miller Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys had Cheap Cycling Jerseys a base salary of $2 million in 2016, a number dwarfed by his $17 million figure (and $25.1 million cap hit) in 2019.
President Trump has railed against NFL players who took a knee during the playing of the national anthem as unpatriotic over the last two years while ignoring the stated reasons for the protests but that changed a bit on Friday.
There’s no way to pardon or let out people who are dead after run-ins with law enforcement, of course. Those deaths and the response to those deaths by law enforcement agencies Baseball Jerseys Cheap and the justice system are a major part of what spurred the protests in the first place and were not addressed by the President on Friday.
We’ve picked up a little factual information that supports that theory, to a certain extent. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Hall of Fame covers the travel and lodging expenses for the Hall of Famer and those accompanying him. (Surely, there’s a limit to that; otherwise, the Hall of Famer could invite everyone he’s ever known.) The Hall of Fame, however, doesn’t pay for the party. And given the lavish Justin Timberlake-headlined bash that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones threw for himself in 2017, the bar has been set at a level that few Hall of Famers can begin to match without outside help.
The Hall of Fame would have tried to help Owens with the party expenses if he’d asked, but apparently he didn’t. The sense has been that Owens felt disrespected by being passed over twice before getting in (indeed, he skipped out on the TV appearances held in the aftermath of securing enshrinement in February), but it wasn’t until after he went to Canton that Owens decided not to return.
So confusion lingers regarding the real reason for T.O.’s looming no-show. It could be that no one was willing to pay for the party. It could be that Owens realized that, when it was time to put together the list of people who would be accompanying him for the weekend, not Basketball Jerseys For Sale many names would have been on it. It could just be Owens being Owens.
Bregman struggled in his first 10 games after being called up in 2016, recording just two hits in his first 38 at-bats. But since hitting his first home run on Aug. 16, 2016, he has been one of the most potent hitters in the Astros’ lineup. His 27 homers from that point until the end of 2017 are third on the team, behind George Springer and José Altuve, and Altuve is the only other Astro with 100 runs and 100 RBIs in that span. — Mills, ESPN Stats & Information
Buxton’s game is his speed — and it helps him excel both on the field and on the basepaths. He had a sprint speed of 30.1 feet per second last season, the fastest of anyone in the majors, according to Statcast. He also recorded 29 outs above average, the most of any outfielder, also according to Statcast. — Langs, ESPN Stats & Information
The Chiefs get a high-energy, productive pursuit player to give them inside depth. O’Daniel also will be a demon flying down the field on special teams.
Early entrants for this summer’s draft had to notify the NBA of their intentions by 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday. That deadline has passed. So we now have a more solidified picture of college basketball’s prospective talent pool in 2018-19.
The Colts likely get a second starting guard from this draft, as Smith will play on the right with No. 6 overall pick Quenton Nelson anchoring the left side. This allows them to kick re-signed Jack Mewhort back out to right tackle, too. With better protection for Andrew Luck and significantly improved run blocking, the next goal is getting a potential feature back.
The 49ers have the reliable Pierre Garcon and the speedy Marquise Goodwin, and they needed something in between out of the slot. Think of Pettis as the potential new Mohamed Sanu for Kyle Shanahan.
The Packers get a big, intelligent ball hawk who can excel Cheap Baseball Jerseys in zone Cheap Authentic Jerseys coverage. Jackson should have been a first-rounder, and he adds to Jaire Alexander and last year’s second-rounder Kevin King to round out the new look of Green Bay’s coverage.
Ohio State center Billy Price, the 21st pick in the draft, enters the fall as an immediate starter along a rebuilt line featuring Cordy Glenn at left tackle. He’s tasked with keeping Dalton comfortable and paving the way for Joe Mixon on the ground.
The Cleveland Browns’ 2018 draft class is all over the place in terms of goals it must accomplish—just as general manager John Dorsey planned it.
Top pick Baker Mayfield will see plenty of jerseys in the stands at home games and hear chants for his name wherever the team travels. But the Browns seem ready to take a measured approach, install an offense around veteran Tyrod Taylor and let it run until the wheels fall off.
The Auburn product has every-down traits after rushing for 1,320 yards and 17 scores in the SEC. While he didn’t receive a ton of first-round hype on the path to the draft, it all goes out the window now as Johnson should have the keys to the entire backfield while fending off guys like Abdullah and LeGarrette Blount.
The primary goal here isn’t hard to see: provide the offense balance while finally getting it going on the ground again.
The Yankees took a 2-0 lead in the second inning on a bases-loaded infield single by Ronald Torreyes and a sacrifice fly by Gleyber Torres.
The lead swelled to 3-0 in the third when Didi Gregorius hit a one-out double and scored on a two-out hit by Neil Walker.
Tanaka cruised through six innings allowing just three baserunners, singles in the second, third and fifth innings.
Yankees No. 1 pitching prospect Justus Sheffield was promoted from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The lefty, who turns 22 on May 13, was 1-2 with a 2.25 ERA in five Eastern League starts this season. In his last outing, he pitched a three-hit Cheap Discount Jerseys shutout over six innings with nine strikeouts in a no-decision at Portland on May 1.
Brett Gardner, who played center with Aaron Hicks resting, was Cheap College Basketball Jerseys 0-for-5 with a strikeout. He’s 5-for-50 in his last 14 games, 13 of them starts.
Since guiding the Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl victory in February, Pederson has celebrated in a parade down Broad Street, thrown out a first pitch at a Phillies game, rang the ceremonial bell before a Sixers game and announced the release of his memoir, titled Fearless.
At some point in the last three months, Pederson apparently added another feather onto his celebratory cap the Eagles reportedly picked up an option in Pederson’s contract after the Super Bowl win, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
It’s safe to say the 50-year old Pederson put those concerns to rest. The Eagles went 13-3 in the regular season, won the NFC East and went into the playoffs with the No. 1 seed… and without their star quarterback, Carson Wentz. With a back-up quarterback in Nick Foles, Pederson’s risk-taking and at times ingenious play-calling tendencies paid off, the Eagles won a Super Bowl and now Pederson will be here for the long haul.
New GM Dave Gettleman just nailed it. First, give him credit for taking Penn State RB Saquon Barkley at No. 2 rather than reaching for a quarterback. Expect Barkley’s impact to be wide-reaching in the short and long run. G Will Hernandez and OLB Lorenzo Carter should be starters by training camp. And Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta (Round 4) might quickly push aside 2017 third rounder Davis Webb as Eli Manning’s backup and, perhaps, eventual successor.
Drafts are replete with boom-or-bust prospects. Jon Gruden’s return produced what looks like a boom-or-bust draft. Trading a third rounder to Pittsburgh for WR Martavis Bryant could be a coup… if Bryant’s head is screwed on soundly.
Terrell Edmunds was a reach in the first round, though the defense did need safety help. But this draft is more likely to be defined by Oklahoma State stars James Washington and Mason Rudolph, potential heir apparents to WR Antonio Brown and QB Ben Roethlisberger, respectively. GM Kevin Colbert traded up for Rudolph, apparently concerned the Bengals would take him. Rudolph and Washington were a deadly combo in Stillwater, and it’s rare to see a team import both ends of such a connection. If it works out, Edmunds will be relegated to bonus status.
Andraez’Greedy’ Williams, CB, LSU: The Greedy nickname is apt, as he recorded six interceptions and 17 passes defensed last season. At 6-2 and 183 pounds, he should Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys turn heads if Cheap Baseball Jerseys China he decides to declare after his redshirt sophomore year.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has discussed the importance of protecting himself with head coach Doug Pederson and members of the offensive staff, he told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio on Wednesday. And while he plans to remain aggressive, Wentz is taking his self-preservation seriously and acknowledges that he’ll have to pick his spots a bit more moving forward.
We’ve talked about it quite a bit, Wentz said, speaking of conversations with Pederson, offensive coordinator Mike Groh and new quarterbacks coach Press Taylor. I think we’re all on the same page.
Witten served as a reliable target at a variety of depths, finishing with the fourth most career receptions in NFL history (1,152). He also finished first in Cowboys history in career receptions (leading Michael Irvin by 452 grabs) and receiving yards (12,448, the second most of a tight end in NFL history), and third in receiving touchdowns with 68. Witten’s 11 Pro Bowl appearances were bested only by Gonzalez, who finished with 14.
He was a huge part of that success… you can ask those running backs who played with him how valuable he was, Gonzalez said. This is why he is a first-ballot Hall of Famer. I think without a doubt I’d put him in the top three, top four tight ends. He could be at the top if you’re talking blocking and catching for all [of what you want] out of the tight end position.
His toughness was matched by few in his era, best captured in his catch and helmetless run for a 53-yard gain during a prime-time game against Philadelphia in 2007 (0:50 in the above video). And as excellent as he was on the field, he was just as good off it, serving as a great Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal teammate and winning the 2012 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. A former Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys longtime teammate and fellow future Hall of Famer paid his respects via Twitter on Thursday.
Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Tuesday that although he believed Colin Kaepernick did not play well in 2016, he’s mildly surprised the free-agent quarterback hasn’t been invited to an NFL training camp over the past year.
Kaepernick has since filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners, though commissioner Roger Goodell has denied that the 30-year-old is being blackballed by the league because of his outspoken stance on social issues.
A second-round draft pick in 2011, Kaepernick started 58 games over parts of six seasons during his time in San Francisco. He completed 59.2% of his passes and threw for 2,241 yards yards in 2016, with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions.
Harris’ first year with the Giants was promising — he returned both a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown. He also set career highs in catches (36), yards (396) and touchdown receptions (four).
In recent seasons, however, Harris has failed to be the offensive factor the Giants had hoped he would be when they originally signed him from the Dallas Cowboys. Harris caught a touchdown pass on his only target in 2016, and he didn’t have a ball thrown in his direction before his 2017 season was cut short.
Harris, 30, suffered a foot injury in a Week 5 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that required surgery. Harris passed his physical Thursday before being cut and is training for next season, as he expects to be ready for the start of the offseason workout program if he is signed in the coming weeks.

Ejections are no longer at the sole discretion of the on-field officials.
The NFL’s owners voted today on a new rule that authorizes a designated member of the officiating department to instruct on-field game officials to eject a player who commits a flagrant non-football act, if a foul for that act is called on the field.
Cole struck out the side in the fifth and seventh innings for his most strikeouts since matching his career high of 12 in his final start of 2014.
The other hit Cole allowed was Elvis Andrus’ leadoff double in the sixth, when he got an inning-ending double play with runners at the corners to preserve a 4-1 lead.
He was in total control of the game, and I think he finished even stronger than he started, Hinch said. His stuff was electrifying at the end of the game. What a great way to start his Astros career.
While 2017 was a magical season for the Rams, they also got more than a few breaks. Early in the year, new head coach Sean McVay caught opponents off guard with his explosive offense. The Rams also ranked among the top 10 in turnover differential (plus-seven).
There’s bound to be more adversity this go-round. Jared Goff and Todd Gurley could play well in 2018 and still regress relative to this past season. That retooled defense features a pair of hotheads at corner and a player with a long history of dustups in Suh, begging the question of how those personalities will mesh in the locker room.
And the Rams lost talented players such as Trumaine Johnson, Alec Ogletree and Sammy Watkins.
The Rams are good, but they aren’t exactly battle-tested, as evidenced by their Cheap Jerseys Bing flop in the Wild Card Round. How they handle the upcoming bumps will be the true test of a talented Cheap Jerseys And Snapbacks squad that just added a lot of new faces…
Some of whom carry a lot of old baggage.
Although a report earlier said the Lions were close to a deal with Frank Gore, Gore won’t visit Detroit until Thursday and LeGarrette Blount travels there Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Browns added Jarvis Landry via trade, but they still could use another receiver to complement Landry and Josh Gordon. Corey Coleman’s two disappointing seasons give a little impetus to the need to strengthen the position. — Pat McManamon
The signing of Jon Bostic gives the Steelers a stopgap starter at inside linebacker — potentially while a high draft pick develops — but the safety spot opposite Sean Davis remains unresolved. The Steelers may keep it that way because of limited cap space ($6.5 million before the Bostic signing). Veteran J.J. Wilcox, acquired in September via trade from Tampa Bay, should have the chance to compete for the job. Still, a slow safety market has left plenty of serviceable ers available. Pittsburgh might be tempted at the right price. — Jeremy Fowler
What must the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots do to get back to the Super Bowl What will it take for teams like the New Orleans Saints to make it to football’s biggest stage How can the Cleveland Browns get out of the league’s toilet bowl
There’s a flip side to that coin, too. Every NFL team must avoid certain pitfalls—draft-day gaffes, ill-advised strategy decisions and potential injuries—that will ruin their 2018 seasons.
Forget the power of positive thinking for now. Instead, indulge in every team’s worst-case scenario.
With quarterback Carson Palmer and head coach Bruce Arians having retired Cheap Infant NFL Jerseys this offseason, the Arizona Cardinals are on the cusp of a full-blown rebuild. However, they attempted to stave that off by adding quarterback Sam Bradford, giving stalwarts Cheap Jarome Iginla Jerseys like Larry Fitzgerald one more chance to make the playoffs.
We’ll see how long that lasts.
James wowed the crowd with some flashy passing and scoring drives in the paint before finishing with 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in 31 minutes. But James didn’t have much help and he displayed some frustration after he had a pass deflected by former teammate Isaiah Thomas for a turnover that later resulted in a Julius Randle dunk for the Lakers.
“No, I don’t need to show anybody,” Thomas said. “They know what I can do. I only played 15 games for them, so it’s really not about showing them what I can do. The world knows what I can do and what I bring to the table. I took it as another game and I just wanted to win and we did a helluva job as a team, beating that really good team over there.”
Coach Mike Sullivan says the team is “encouraged” by Murray’s progress. Sullivan added he expects Murray to travel with the Penguins when they begin a three-game road trip against the New York Rangers on Wednesday night. The Penguins are 4-3 since Murray went down and trail first-place Washington by one point in the crowded Metropolitan Division.
Penguins forward Bryan Rust, who has missed the past two games while dealing with a concussion, has been cleared for contact and could join his teammates on the road swing.
“You saw the stuff, the velo. He wasn’t holding anything back. He was letting it go, and it was good to see. And he pitched a good amount of pitches for his first time out in a real game,” he said.
DeGrom said it felt a little strange making his first start this late in camp, and the time spent in bullpens and sim games resulted in one big problem — working from the stretch.
The Spurs have so many players out injured that it’s hard to judge their Cheap College Jerseys current level. With LaMarcus Aldridge sidelined and Kawhi Leonard not expected back until Thursday, the Spurs didn’t put up all that much resistance against the dominant Rockets. Not one of their starters played more than 24 minutes, and three of them played 15 minutes or less. Only one starter, Rudy Gay, even scored in double-figures and none had over five rebounds or three assists. It was just a bad night overall, and the loss Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys dropped San Antonio in the standings to where they would miss the playoffs if they began today.
