Bears chairman McCaskey: Team supports NFL’s national-anthem policy, but it ‘isn’t perfect’

Bears chairman McCaskey: Team supports NFL’s national-anthem policy, but it ‘isn’t perfect’ More Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey said Thursday that the team supports the NFL’s new national-anthem policy while also acknowledging the issues behind the protests and applauding players’ social activism.

In a press conference at the team’s facility, McCaskey told reporters that the first players who took a knee did so to protest police misconduct and social inequality, which he called legitimate issues deserving discussion and action.

You have him to give him credit, Mott said. We have a lot of respect for Justify, but by the same token, we don’t want to hand him the Belmont on a silver platter. If he wins it, we’re going to make him work for it.

Triple Crown hype aside, logic says the race could provide one of the most challenging graduation exercises an overwhelming favorite like Justify has ever faced. Think back to the Preakness and the image of Bravazo charging out of the fog and challenging Justify down the stretch. He generated the kind of pressure on the sloppy track that Justify had never seen.

According to multiple reports, the four-year extension with the Cheap Embroidered NFL Jerseys Dolphins with a total value of $27 million. There are $13 million in guarantees included in the deal, .

McCain joined the Dolphins as a fifth-round pick in 2015 and has played in every game over his first three professional seasons. McCain has primarily worked out of the slot in those appearances and has 121 tackles, two sacks and three interceptions on the stat sheet.

With the injury never really slowing Luck or keeping him out of action, the quick surgery to repair the problem shortly after the end of the 2016 season didn’t raise many red flags. It wasn’t until the beginning of training camp that concern crept in.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard said from the start that the plan wasn’t to have Luck begin the season on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. He held Cheap Gaa Jerseys that promise by pulling the quarterback from the list on Sept. 2 after Luck passed a physical.

Vincent feared that the 15-yard pass interference penalty would replace touchdowns with penalties.

He’s right. Let’s use a bad pass interference call like Ken Crawley’s foul against a stumbling Stefon Diggs in the Vikings-Saints playoff game as an example. Replace the spot foul with a 15-yard penalty, and defenders like Crawley either tackle Diggs if he fears getting beat, or receivers like Diggs start flopping after incidental contact, hoping officials are less reluctant to award 15 yards on a borderline call than 34 yards.

The NCAA hasn’t gotten the message yet. The NFL may finally be onto the fact that turning every catch into a senate confirmation hearing is detrimental to the game, especially when most fans are dissatisfied with the results.

Let ’em play. Let us watch them play. It’s pretty simple when you don’t go out of the way to overcomplicate things.

As he stepped in front of a hoard of reporters eager to ask questions about Odell Beckham’s future with the Giants, Gettleman tried to cut off questions at the pass with a prepared statement.

Here is what he said:

Before I start, I just want to read a statement to you guys. I just want to make a couple of comments. Please, I’m not talking down to anybody.

There are 53 guys on every active NFL roster. Football is the ultimate team game. Eleven guys go out there, and they blow the whistle. If you are on defense and 10 guys do it right and 1 guy does it wrong, you are looking at touchdown. Same thing on the other side of the ball. It’s the ultimate team game.

Every decision we make will be in the best interest of the New York Football Giants. I want you guys to understand something: I’m not going to discuss any aspect of contracts. I’m not going Cheap Ireland Football Jerseys to talk timelines, progress. I’m not going there. I didn’t do it in Cheap Jerseys 90 Carolina. I ain’t doing it up here. Plain and simple. OK

Joe Thomas ‘excited’ by Browns’ moves, won’t let trades affect retirement call

Joe Thomas is more than excited about the flurry of moves made by the Cleveland Browns over the past two days, but he said that won’t affect his decision on whether to play in 2018 or retire.

My decision will be based purely on my health, Thomas said Saturday in an e-mail. But I’m excited by the moves [general manager] John [Dorsey] made.

Thomas referred to trades that brought quarterback Tyrod Taylor, receiver Jarvis Landry and cornerback Damarious Randall to Cleveland and sent quarterback DeShone Kizer to Green Bay and defensive lineman Danny Shelton to New England.

Shead, who turns 29 in June, started for a season and a half opposite Sherman at right cornerback before he tore his ACL in a playoff game in January 2017. He has experience at all five positions in Seattle’s secondary since the team signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012. That includes one start at strong safety in 2015 while Kam Chancellor was holding out.

Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, was entering the final year of a five-year, $35 million contract. He would have counted $8.5 million against the salary cap in 2018, and the Giants will save $6.5 million by releasing him.

Rodgers-Cromartie thanked the Giants in an Instagram post Sunday morning:

Before releasing him, the Giants had asked Rodgers-Cromartie to take a pay cut, but he declined. They also considered trying him at free safety, a source told ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. The two-time Pro Bowler has played cornerback his entire 10-year career, starting on the outside early in Cheap Authentic Baseball Jerseys his career before being shifted inside to the slot the past two seasons.

Rodgers-Cromartie has 30 career interceptions but had none in 2017 after matching his career high with six in 2016. He was suspended for one game last season by then-coach Ben McAdoo for Cheap Barcelona Jerseys leaving practice without permission.

Even still, the biggest gap won’t be between their ages, it’ll be between their quality of play during the 2017 season.

In the regular season, Brady ranked first in passing yards while Mariota finished 20th. Brady ranked fifth in completion percentage while Mariota finished 18th. Brady ranked third in Cheap Basketball Jerseys UK touchdown passes while Mariota finished tied for 26th. Brady ranked tied for 21st in interceptions while Mariota finished third. Brady ranked third in passer rating while Mariota finished 27th.

Speaking of first touchdowns with new teams, Marshawn Lynch rumbled his way into the end zone in front of his hometown crowd to extend his team’s lead over the Jets. You can see that play, as well as him running over a Jets defender on another play, here.

The Ravens have dealt with several key losses due to injury and retirement for what seems like months. At some point, you’d figure their injury luck would even out. That was not the case on Sunday, as their best offensive lineman, Marshal Yanda, suffered an ankle fracture that will keep him out for the rest of the season (more on the injury here).

Look for the Jaguars to use a few three-wide sets on early downs to keep the Patriots honest, but if they are forced to do that because of game flow or down-and-distance, Bortles will be in trouble. Jacksonville needs to stay ahead of the chains with Fournette and those short passes getting little chunks. New England needs a big performance from its linebackers in coverage.

In the NFC, the Eagles clinched the No. 1 seed. The Vikings can secure the second seed with a triumph at home over the Bears. That would give the Vikings, who are attempting to become the first team ever to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium, an opening-round bye and then a home game in a conference semifinal.

The availability of RB Ezekiel Elliott has become a week-to-week matter, with his case back in federal court Thursday. The Cowboys are making the most of things, with an impressive victory Sunday at home over the Chiefs. They go to Atlanta this weekend with a chance to push the reeling Cheap China NFL Jerseys Falcons even further back in the NFC wild-card chase.

Cam Newton apologizes for response to female reporter

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton on Thursday night apologized via video on social media for what he called an “extremely degrading and disrespectful” choice of words in response to a female reporter’s question the day before.

The video came about nine hours after a spokesperson for Dannon Oikos Yogurt said the company no longer would use the 2015 NFL MVP in its commercials and advertisements and would begin pulling those immediately.

“I think the thing that we have seen in watching EJ Manuel is he’s running the same offense that Derek Carr was running,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday. “So, it’s not like they have a different offense for Manuel. He’s running the Oakland Raider offense, so we’ll prepare for their offense, probably try to have an understanding of what he does well. They are both mobile; Derek Carr can really move, too. So, it’s not like you’re talking about two guys that aren’t mobile. They’re both mobile quarterbacks.”

Del Rio initially said after the game that Carr was suffering from back Cheap Football Practice Jerseys spasms and did not believe the injury would be a long-term issue. But further tests on Monday revealed the nature of the injury.

“The MRI wasn’t conclusive, so they did a CAT scan and that’s where it was determined that there was a problem,” Del Rio said. “He did the CAT scan after this morning, like this Cheap Heat Jerseys afternoon. This all just happened. The timeline was, first the X-ray yesterday, doesn’t look like anything. Then the MRI this morning, still looks good. Then, let’s be sure because we didn’t have a real good look at this area, so the CAT scan revealed the problem.”

NBA free agent rumors: Top five destinations for Blake Griffin

Clippers forward Blake Griffin has opted out of his contract, according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, making him one of the most prized free agents this summer.

Chris Paul, Griffin’s teammate for the past six seasons, was Cheap Wholesale Jerseys China traded to the Rockets, giving Houston one of the NBA’s best backcourts (the best, according to NBA 2K). Will Griffin also jump ship, or will he stay with the Clippers to be the face of the franchise?

Here’s a look at the top five destinations for Blake Griffin as he approaches free agency.

Why: Both traditional and sabermetric measures suggest that just three or four more effective seasons in the majors might have vaulted Henke to near the top of the list of closers in baseball history.

Henke’s 12 Wins Above Average for his career are tied for 11th-best among relievers, according to the Baseball-Reference.com Play Index tool. With a few more good years, Henke could reasonably have risen as high as Goose Goosage at third on this list with 16.4 Wins Above Average.

Among Hall of Fame relievers, at least in terms of sabermetrics, Rivera at 32.9 Wins Above Average and Hoyt Wilhelm at 26.9 are more or less in a class by themselves. Otherwise, it’s very much up for debate.

With a few more solid seasons, Henke also might have risen significantly up the list of save leaders. At the time of his retirement, Henke’s 311 saves ranked him fifth on the all-time list behind Lee Smith, Jeff Reardon, Rollie Fingers and Dennis Eckersley. Since then, he’s tumbled to 22nd. But if he’d gotten to 400 saves, a reasonable goalpost Cheap Youth Baseball Jerseys with three or four more good years, Henke would be seventh on the all-time list.

Don’t be fooled by the Eagles’ middle-of-pack sack total of 34 last season.

Orr wouldn’t be on the free-agent market right now if Baltimore had tendered a restricted free-agent contract in March. The move wasn’t made because the Ravens truly believed Orr was done playing when he announced his retirement in January. Thus, Orr became an unrestricted free agent.

As a restricted free agent, Orr was likely to receive a Cheap Wholesale Jerseys one-year, $2.7 million tender that would have required an interested suitor to surrender a second-round draft pick as compensation. The Ravens also would have been given the chance to match any offer sheet Orr signed.

Orr likely will garner a higher salary now after becoming an unrestricted free agent one year earlier than expected, especially because no compensation is needed to sign him.

Don’t be fooled by the Eagles’ middle-of-pack sack total of 34 last season. They were effective in finding their early pass-rush groove under defensive coordinator and four-man front guru Jim Schwartz. End Brandon Graham and tackle Fletcher Cox responded well to the change in scheme, but it was clear they needed help to get more liberal paths to the quarterback. Enter end Chris Long and his high energy, as well as tackle Timmy Jernigan and his attack mentality.

That should up the production by about eight to 10 sacks, and we haven’t even mentioned rookie first-round pick Derek Barnett. He’ll get plenty of chances rotating with the 32-year-old Long and Vinny Curry opposite Graham. Schwartz will insert Barnett into downs and situations that maximize his massive, pure pass-rush skills first before playing consistently ahead of those veterans. The Eagles got Barnett because he produces, and the Cheap Yankees Jerseys 20-year-old will be in the ideal spot as he works to round out his game.

Breaking down new-look Bills: Simplicity to benefit Tyrod Taylor, evolving roster

So maybe the Bills won’t snap their 17-year playoff drought, the longest of any team in all four major American sports leagues, in 2017. At this point, Buffalo will Cheap Wbc Jerseys take a lack of dysfunction as a step in the right direction.

The same-page relationship between new coach Sean McDermott and new general manager Brandon Beane signals such a step for the first time since Terry and Kim Pegula purchased the team in 2014. And the Bills are not wasting time — the inevitable roster overhaul began well before Beane arrived.

Gone is the Rex Ryan regime, including the former coach’s unrealistic injections of hope. The general manager and scouting staff with which Ryan and, evidently, the owners largely disagreed was milked for all they were worth and shown the door after the 2017 NFL Draft.

Kyle Rudolph put up the best numbers of his career — his 83 catches were third-best in the league for tight ends, and his 840 yards were fourth-best. Yet, again, as is the case with Bradford’s precedent-setting season of safe calls and throws, repeating that isn’t ideal. (He was targeted more than any tight end, and was tops on the Vikings.)

They started in the right direction in last year’s draft by taking Laquon Treadwell in the first round, then this offseason put pressure on him to take a Year 2 leap when the team signed Michael Floyd in free agency.

Stefon Diggs looks to be much healthier, and Adam Thielen looks to match a big season last year. They weren’t lamenting losing Cordarrelle Patterson to Cheap Xavi Jerseys free agency for a reason: As much as they miss him on returns, they have depth at receiver that they can exploit, and that’s what Shurmur does well.

the Pacers were not willing to be patient with the Celtics

The Celtics, however, did not have to endure The Process to get the results of The Process. They did not have to hollow out the roster, create a league-wide crisis with blatant Cheap Spirit Jerseys tanking and go 75-253 in that span to collect those young players. They simply had to fleece the Nets back in 2013.

Now, with (perhaps) a total of six first-round picks in the next two drafts, there is still a chance that Boston will make a trade for a major player. But there is no need to panic if they don’t. The team has been aggressive in its trade offers for the likes of George and Butler, and for players like Blake Griffin and Justise Winslow.

But as with the George deal — the Pacers were not willing to be patient with the Celtics, and wanted George out of the East — having assets is not the only key to getting a deal done. The Clippers ultimately pulled back on dealing Griffin, and Charlotte owner Michael Jordan liked Frank Kaminsky too much to deal his pick to Boston two years ago. The Ainge complaints will continue, but you can’t force the other side to say yes.

Similarly, you can’t force a free agent to say yes. The Celtics put together a good pitch to Kevin Durant last summer, and Durant conceded that he was nearly swayed to go to Boston. But he wound up with the Warriors. Boston could do much the same thing with Gordon Hayward — get him close to signing, but ultimately lose out to Miami or Utah.

Why he’s here: He was expected to be a key cog in the Pirates’ lineup after posting career-best numbers last year; however, the struggles that plagued him in the second half of ’16 have carried over into this year. Polanco’s numbers are rather pedestrian, and while he’s had flashes Cheap Throwback NBA Jerseys this year (a .900 OPS in May, for instance) he hasn’t been able to keep it up (a .520 OPS in June).

5 ways to bring a little NFL to your Fourth of July

Sometimes it can seem like there’s no middle ground for patriotism in the U.S. The boisterous flag-wavers are accused of jingoism, while anyone who dares find fault in the good ol’ US of A is handed a map to Canada and told to get out.

But then there’s the Fourth of July.

Right now the league has eight teams: 3 Headed Monsters, 3’s Company, Ball Hogs, Ghost Ballers, Killers 3s, Power, Tri-State and Trilogy. There are individual players — e.g. Iverson, Bibby, Brian Scalabrine, Rashard Lewis — who will undoubtedly receive attention from fans and media across the Cheap Softball Jerseys For Men country, so the league needs to find a way to compose and promote its rosters so that fans become loyal to one or two teams and even root against one or two in a WWE-esque fashion.

This will by no means be a quick and easy process. Part of the league’s success will hinge on continuing to draw popular ex-NBA players and keeping them healthy.

This list is in no particular order, but Didi Gregorius would still be first regardless. No other player here was given the unenviable task of supplanting an icon in New York.

With massive Jumpman Jordan cleats to fill, Gregorius has excelled since taking over as the Yankees’ shortstop. He took some time to get acclimated in 2015 but looked more and more comfortable as the year went on. Last season, the lefty swinger became a middle of the order threat, belting 20 home runs while hitting an outstanding .320 against southpaw pitching.

After missing almost all of April, Sir Didi is putting it all together this season. In 57 games he has 10 home runs, 36 RBIs and a .310/.333/.489 slash line. On the other side Cheap Throwback Jerseys of the ball, Gregorius possesses one of the strongest arms in the game to go with a sure glove hand.
