Baker Mayfield recreates iconic Brett Favre Jersey draft day photo

Twenty-seven years ago, Brett Favre took the call advising him that the Falcons had made him a second-round draft pick while lounging on his bed, family surrounding him and resplendent in jorts. The night before the draft that will see Baker Mayfield picked in round one, he has recreated the photo. All the way down to the jorts.

Raekwon McMillan Youth Jersey This isn’t just a new-age platitude, either. It’s fact. Since 2008, of the 20 teams that qualified for the Super Bowl not one of them had one of its two top rushers come from a top-10 overall pick Buffalo Bills Jersey they drafted, according to Elias Sports Bureau. Think about that for a second.

Think about this: Of the top seven rushers in the NFL last year, only one 鈥?the Rams’ Todd Gurley 鈥?was a top-10 pick. No. 1 was Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt, and he was a third-rounder. So was the league’s best rookie, New Orleans’ Alvin Kamara. Not incidentally, both the Chiefs and Saints made the playoffs.

The leading rusher on your Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, LaGarrette Blount? He wasn’t drafted at all. The leading rusher on your Super Bowl runner-up New England Patriots, Dion Lewis? He was a fifth-rounder.

So it’s a move that the Ravens think should bolster their roster, in a first round that the Bills think has improved their team on both sides of the ball.

Vinny Testaverde: His experience comforted Parcells, and the Jets took flight, all the way to the 1998 AFC Championship game, after he arrived as a free agent to replace Foley early in the season. Parcells reminded Testaverde of his father, and he flourished (29 TDs, 7 INTs) playing for his hometown team. Alas, he tore his Achilles in the ’99 home opener, and was never the same, and neither were the Rick Mirer-Ray Lucas Jets. In seven seasons as a Jet, Testaverde threw 77 TD passes and 58 INTs.

Chad Pennington: The 18th pick of the 2000 NFL Draft benefited from sitting behind Testaverde until early in the 2002 season, and he was The Natural. He was smart and accurate and a fiery leader who would bang helmets with teammates during introductions. A series of injuries and lack of arm strength derailed him. In eight seasons as a Jet, he threw 82 TDs and 55 INTs.

Sam Darnold Jersey understands the focus on his college turnovers

Sam Darnold is regarded as the safer choice by the Browns at No. 1. Even if he’s not always safe with the football.
Youth Robin Roberts Replica Grey Road Jersey: Majestic MLB #36 Philadelphia Phillies Cool Base
Darnold threw 22 interceptions and fumbled the ball 21 times in 27 starts at USC. As a result, he’s hearing a lot about his propensity to not protect the ball in the run-up to the draft.

There’s obviously a lot of talk about turnovers, which I get, Darnold said during a recent visit to PFT Live. The tape doesn’t lie. I’ve heard that a million times. It’s fair. It’s really fair. Turning the ball over is something you don’t want to do as a quarterback. I think the number one job as a quarterback is protecting the football. I’ve been working on it, but at the same time there’s so many plays where I take my left hand off the ball and I make a first down or I throw a touchdown. There’s a lot of give and take when it comes to me turning the ball over. But, yeah, it’s something that I can’t do. It’s something that I’ve really been working on.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said the Kyle Juszczyk Jersey team is confident neither the turnovers nor Darnold’s motion will be an issue.

You don’t want turnovers on any level, but we think his upside and his ability far outweighs the turnovers and sometimes trying to do too much, sometimes making the wrong reads and things he can learn from and getting to know him we think those things can be corrected, Bowles said.

GS is the projected game score for the pitcher. The * symbol means the pitcher lacks requisite career major league data to produce an accurate rating; these are the author’s ratings.

Pedro Severino (R), 3 percent, Washington Nationals vs. Colorado Rockies (LHP Tyler Anderson): Severino held his own while Matt Wieters was out, slashing .308 /.455/.385. It’s not a sure thing he’ll play with Wieters back and coming off a great game, but with the platoon edge, this seems like a logical spot to keep Severino sharp.

While the Red Sox do have a hitting-friendly schedule, keep in mind the possibility that some of their regulars might be rested during the week as the team concludes a 13-day span without a day off, which began with the tense Week 2 series versus the New York Yankees. On the pitching side, David Price (hand) had his next start pushed back by a day to Tuesday, and there’s no guarantee he’ll be ready to pitch even by then. (Side note: The Baltimore Orioles, Boston’s Monday opponent, will be just beginning a stretch of 17 games in as many days, though with less travel involved.)

The Yankees finally called up Torres, their top prospect for quite some time, for Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium.

After so much hype, after such a wait, Gleyber Torres stood in front of his locker in the Yankees ‘ clubhouse.

He let out a sigh. He hardly slept the night before after driving East from Scranton, Pa., the home of the team’s Triple-A club. Maybe three or four hours, he said. Still, his eyes were wide

“It’s amazing,” he said.

To make room on the roster for Torres, the Yankees sent fellow highly touted prospect Tyler Wade to Triple-A.

He used to hear those “MVP!” chants from Devils fans. Now, they belong to a forward. With due respect to the scorers that preceded him in Jersey, none seemed so present and dangerous on every shift. With none of his predecessors did it seem like every time they touched the puck, something was going to happen. That’s where Hall is right now.

“He wants this. He certainly wants to win. It makes it easy to play for him,” Coleman said.

So after the best regular season of his career, Hall sets that same tempo in the playoffs, where he admits it has been a learning experience for him.

As Caldwell said, the Jaguars still have needs, but they’re just not as glaring as they were in year’s past. Though they gave Blake Bortles an extension , they shouldn’t cross quarterback off their list of needs considering Bortles is still an inconsistent-at-best quarterback. The Jaguars’ receiving corps just got gutted in free agency with the departures of both Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns , so acquiring a receiver needs to happen at some point during the draft. Linebacker is a need after Paul Posluszny retired. They could use another cornerback after losing slot man Aaron Colvin to free agency. And the offensive line needs better depth. 

So, who will the Jaguars draft? It’s pretty much impossible to predict who they’ll end up taking considering 28 players will be off the board before they’re on the clock, but based on all our mock drafts here at, the following prospects could be in play: Connor Williams , OT, Texas Courtland Sutton , WR, Sourthern Methodist Christian Kirk , WR, Texas A&M Mason Rudolph , QB, Oklahoma St. D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland Calvin Ridley , WR, Alabama As you can see, receiver was the most popular pick. And that makes sense because if the Jaguars do have a glaring need, it’s definitely receiver.steelers_126

Alex Collins Jersey signs tender with Ravens

Running back Alex Collins had a breakout season in 2017 with the Ravens, but he didn’t have much of a chance to cash in on it this offseason.
Youth Jordan Crawford Authentic Red Nike Jersey: NBA New Orleans Pelicans #27 Statement Edition
Collins was an exclusive rights free agent, which meant he was bound to the Ravens once they tendered him an offer early in the offseason. Not signing the tender would have left Collins without the ability to play in the NFL this year, so it was little more than a formality when he did just that with the Ravens’ offseason program getting started on Monday.

Collins ran 212 times for 973 yards and six touchdowns in Baltimore last year. He joined the team in September after being waived by the Seahawks, who drafted him in the fifth round in 2016.

The national champion Villanova Wildcats were in the house and star guard Phil Booth screamed Are you ready for some hockey?

Flyers fans heard the usual stirring rendition of God Bless America, live Jesse James Womens Jersey by Lauren Hart and on video by the late Kate Smith. The song has been a rallying anthem for the Flyers since Smith began singing it in the mid 1970s. Hart started the song, then looked up to the big screen and passed it off to Smith. They finished in a split-screen duet.

Yeah, we did have some communication with Zay when we got back and to this point, we are satisfied with where that is, McDermott said, via the Buffalo News. The biggest thing right now is where we go moving forward and how we handle our business moving forward. Listen, people go through situations and, like I said before, I was disappointed. The biggest thing is that we were able to talk about it and come to a point where we all agree we need to move forward. I’m excited about the future for Zay.

Jones had 27 catches for 316 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. The makeup of the Bills receiving corps points to plenty of opportunities for Jones to improve on those numbers in the year to come.

The trade of Jason Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers puts the onus even more squarely on Vernon to be a difference-maker. His new role, McGovern said, is going to play to his strengths.

I’m not here to bash anybody, but they know, man, Bryant told Jane Slater of NFL Network. They know. They know. The way this whole situation got handled, I felt like I asked some of them to be a man about some of the situations a long time ago, and they couldn’t. I’m not talking about no players, because all the players we A1. That’s one thing that we did. We learned from one another. . . . I’m trying my best to sugarcoat it, but I can’t.

Bryant clarified he was talking about some of the coaches and later did talk about some players.

The Cowboys have turned over their coaching staff, and receivers coach Derek Dooley is one of those who left in the offseason. Head coach Jason Garrett and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan remain.

Well, I’m in the latter half of my career, and I just wanted to be comfortable, Talib said, via Kristen Lago of the team website. Wherever I went, I wanted to be comfortable and there was no time in the NFL where I was more comfortable playing football than with Wade Phillips. He’s like a guru at putting guys in position to succeed. So if I was going to go somewhere I wanted to be comfortable, and I’m definitely comfortable here in L.A.

Talig, 32, will enter his 11th season with his fourth team. He couldn’t be happier.

Man, I’m very excited just to be in L.A., the Bud Norris Jersey weather, just to be back with coach Wade and be with a nice team like this, Talib said. This a great team, a great organization. So a competitive team to be a part of a competitive team and make this run towards the Super Bowl is a blessing.

He was really good, too, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Cueto. This is what makes it even tougher.

Corbin struck out at least eight his first three starts of the season — a first in his career — but did not factor in the decision his last time out, allowing three runs in 5 1/3 innings of Arizona’s 5-4 loss to the Giants.

Corbin walked Joe Panik in the fourth inning and kept the Giants off-balance until Belt’s single.

Davis Webb Jersey can, if not entirely change, certainly affect what the Giants do with that highly anticipated No. 2 selection in the draft.

Thus far, new head coach Pat Shurmur likes what he knows and sees of Webb, although, admittedly, it is a small sample size.
Youth Kyle Okposo Authentic Navy Blue Adidas Jersey: NHL Buffalo Sabres #21 Home
If Shurmur learns more and likes more about Webb in the coming weeks, the Giants 鈥?already committed to at least one more year, and perhaps more, of Eli Manning 鈥?are not going to take a quarterback with their coveted first-round pick.

It factors in, Shurmur said Tuesday morning at the NFL owners’ meetings. I’ve got high hopes for him, being a productive player in this league. It’s a little bit of an unknown.

Shurmur actually appreciated Mara’s message that no one, not even Beckham, is untouchable.

Elandon Roberts Authentic Jersey That Womens Sidney Jones Jersey is just another way of saying we’re gonna try to do everything we can to make our team better, Shurmur said. I understand that. It’s sort of refreshing to know we’re gonna look under any rock and turn over any stone we can to make sure we make the New York Football Giants the best team we can make it.

As for the now-infamous Paris hotel Beckham video, Shurmur said, Well, like anybody else, first of all I think it’s important you get all the information, who knows how that video appeared, but certainly we all understand there are certain ways we need to act and certain things we don’t want to be doing, so that’s that, really.

Let’s take a look at how this could play out:

Bowles said this week McCown will enter training camp as the starter, but that does not mean he will start Week 1.

Josh will go into it as the starter, Bowles said. By the end of training camp, we’ll see who the starter is. There’s competition at every position 鈥?even with the two young safeties, whether it’s Leonard Williams or anyone else, everyone has competition going in. They may be the starter Day 1. If they’re not performing well enough, they won’t be the starter at the end of August. That goes for every position. That’s never changed since I’ve been here.

I believe the Jets’ preference is to have the rookie quarterback sit and watch for a while, but if he shows that he is capable of starting Week 1, he could win the job. Bowles talked about the difficulty of finding a franchise quarterback in the draft.

It’s an educated crapshoot, he said.

We see a football team that learned and grew together with a new coach and took it all the way to a dramatic Super Bowl championship.

The “under construction’’ sign affixed to the offensive line cannot be taken down just yet, even with the free agent signing of Nate Solder to play left tackle and Patrick Omameh to move in as a starting guard. A need and desire remains to add talent the Giants will do so early in this draft. Keep an eye in the second round on Will Hernandez of UTEP, a mauler who could start at guard from Day 1. Depth at offensive tackle could also use upgrading.

“All we have to do is look across the street, in a couple of different directions. You look across the street the other way and see a young, blossoming basketball team in the playoffs. This story has played out over the last couple of years in Philadelphia with a great deal of success. We’re hopefully following in the footsteps of those two teams.”

At the outset of his three-year contract with the Phillies, Kapler is simply trying to manage the demands on his time and the grip the job has on his emotions and his psyche. At Yankees’ spring training, Boone shared the observation that he has had more “job-specific” dreams than anyone could have imagined. Kapler can relate.

This year is different, though, and the Giants — who have not had a selection this high in the draft since 1981 — have already monitored all the top quarterbacks and will bring them in as part of the 30 visits they are allowed. That means Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield will make their way to New Jersey in the coming days and weeks. Saquon Barkley, the top running back in this year’s draft, is also expected in for a visit.

The Giants have already met and watched these quarterbacks at the scouting combine and their individual Pro Days and, in some cases, already gone out to dinner with them. This does not mean the Giants will take any of them, but due diligence is a must. Before they sign off or discount a quarterback, the Giants will make sure they know everything about every one of them. They are also paying close attention to Barkley, defensive end Bradley Chubb and guard Quenton Nelson, who are expected to be the top three players on the draft board.

That board has not yet been assembled. In fact, the scouts were recalled this week, as the extensive draft meetings started up Wednesday and will continue through April 18. Scouts, coaches and team executives will meet and put together the draft board, assigning values to every player deemed to be draft-worthy. Only then will the Giants’ draft strategy come into full focus.jets_059

Lions’ Ziggy Ansah Jersey expected to sign tender, report for workouts

The Detroit Lions were hopeful that Ziggy Ansah would take part in a portion of voluntary workouts this offseason so first-year coach Matt Patricia could get to know his star pass rusher.
Nike Men's Chris Conte Elite Orange Alternate Jersey - Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL #23
The Cleveland Browns skipped Mahomes, Trubisky and Watson last year, then made their move for DeShone Kizer in round two. Kizer is now in Green Bay. And Cleveland is now looking at a dubious quarterback class while holding the No. 1 and No. 4 picks.

Truly expert analysis is elusive. More than a couple of draft experts last year, sounding a little like Payton recently, called the 2017 QB choices poor enough that one might not even go in the first round. Then not only did three go in the first 12 picks, but all three went to teams (Chicago, Kansas City, Houston) who traded up to get the guys they wanted. If there’s a worry for Pace and the Bears, it might be that teams ahead of them come to conclusions that at least some of the quarterback class isn’t worth top-10.
Elite Womens Jordan Weal Jersey
The Saints are also a possibility, Rapoport added, but they don’t figure to be as aggressive as Baltimore.

Considering general manager Ozzie Newsome’s lengthy track record of attempting to extract value out of declining receivers, it’s easy to imagine Bryant corralling Flacco’s passes in 2018. Even before the Crabtree addition, Newsome’s affinity for veteran wideouts featured fliers on Mike Wallace , Jeremy Maclin , Steve Smith, Anquan Boldin , Lee Evans and Derrick Mason.
Elite Womens C. J. Prosise Jersey
If Bryant does end up in Baltimore, he’ll be traveling a well-worn path.

But I don’t see Gettleman passing on two surer things over a quarterback he’s not at all sure about. I also would be surprised if Gettleman trades the pick with two franchise players on the board, but if the Bills offer three ones to come up, he’s going to have to think about it. I doubt he’d do it, because of what he said at the combine: You’re drafting [at two] what you think is gonna be a Hall of Womens Tyson Jost Jersey Fame player. So you can’t get too cute about the whole thing. One final piece of intel: Gettleman was the Carolina GM for five drafts, between 2013 and 2017.

Instead of holding on to star players or handing out rich extensions to the wrong homegrown players, the Cowboys are being run more like the other 31 NFL teams. Releasing Bryant is a prime example and absolutely the right move for the franchise.

A clue to the current state of the Cowboys can be found in Jerry Jones’ statement on Bryant’s release.

Even Bryant called those key words in one of the James Conner Authentic Jersey many fascinating tweets that he’s sent out since the news. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Jerry Jones was essentially the last man defending Bryant’s place on the roster, whereas Stephen Jones and possibly coaches were in favor of a change.

When working out on their own, NFL players have no financial protection, other than whatever insurance policy they may have purchased. When working out at the team facility, they remain Antonio Gates Jersey automatically eligible for their full salary for the coming season, if a fluke injury puts them on injured reserve.

Plenty of teams choose to still pay a player who gets injured while working out on his own. When the alternative is sitting on the couch eating pork rinds and watching bowling, teams prefer players to choose to be active. Given Beckham’s current relationship with the Giants, however, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Giants place Beckham on the non-football injury list and to elect not to pay him if he pops an Achilles tendon running on a beach.

At least NFL Europe enjoyed a lengthy run, unlike failures earlier this century that bled money until collapsing (the XFL and UFL), didn’t last for more than a heartbeat (the ill-fated Spring Football League) or never got off the ground (Major League Football and/or the All American Football League).

We want the players to do well, Polian said. Every Alliance contract is going to carry with it an ‘out’ for any player who has an opportunity at any time to go to the NFL.

We recognize we’re not in competition with the NFL. We hope what we do augments what the NFL is doing.
