Bill Simmons blasts reporter for bungling quote about Josh Rosen Jersey

Josh Rosen found himself at the center of an NFL media war over a botched quotation.
Nike Alex Anzalone Youth Olive/Camo Limited Jersey: #47 NFL New Orleans Saints 2017 Salute To Service
Controversy erupted after The Nation’s Dave Zirin tweeted a quote Wednesday about questions concerning Rosen’s priorities ahead of the NFL draft.

Kids Malcolm Jenkins Jersey Mike Lombardi said of Josh Rosen: ‘He has to decide whether he wants to be a humanitarian or football player.’ Why ‘ wrote Zirin, a left-winger who writes about the intersection of sports and politics, in a since-deleted tweet.

Zirin rephrased his apology repeatedly in response to Simmons’ criticism Will do better, he tweeted Womens Wes Schweitzer Jersey later but insisted the initial sentiment, that Lombardi’s comment touched on a sticky subject of an athlete’s right to have opinions outside of his sport, still held true.

A source indicated the Giants already have decided they want Jones back.

Jones, 26, likely will be given a second-round tender, which would cost the Giants $2.91 million for the upcoming season. As a restricted free agent, Jones would be able to seek offers from other teams, with the Giants retaining the right to match any offer. If Jones signed elsewhere, that team would give the Giants a second-round pick. Essentially, a second-round tender ensures Jones of staying put. The Giants could save money with an original-round tender of $1.9 million but would receive no compensation if Jones left, as Jones entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent.

Teams have until March 14 to tender their restricted free agents.

An NFL source told The Post the Giants are not interested in re-signing center Weston Richburg, set to be an unrestricted free agent. Richburg was the Giants’ second-round pick in 2014.

Jones, a native of Canada, made the Giants roster in 2015 after earning honors with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. He started 13 games this past season, one at left guard and the final 12 at center. The coaching staff decided to stick with Jones as the starter even after Richburg was cleared from the concussion protocol and Richburg eventually was placed on injured reserve.

Lamar Jackson Jersey: I’m a quarterback, plain and simple

INDIANAPOLIS During his session with reporters Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine, Lamar Jackson punctuated many of his sentences with yes sir except when one topic came up.
K.J. Wright Women's Nike Green Rush Vapor Untouchable Elite NFL Jersey - Seattle Seahawks #50 Jerseys
Authentic Mens Reuben Foster Jersey The NFL Network reported Friday morning that a few teams had asked the Louisville quarterback to work out as a wide receiver.

I’m mobile, Jackson said. I can hit any target on the field. I love the game with a passion. I can lead my team. I feel like I’m a field general when I’m out there. I love to score. I love to put the ball in receivers’ hands. I’m not a ball hog at all. It may look like it, but I’m not. I just love winning, yes sir.

Jackson has a different approach to the draft than many. He is not hiring an agent. He has a lawyer, who will represent him in contract negotiations, and his mother is acting as his manager.

I know coming Womens Vincent Jackson Jersey in as a rookie agents don’t really negotiate anything, Jackson said. You gonna get the salary you’re going to get. I just decided I don’t need him. He’s going to be taking a big cut of my paycheck and I feel like I deserve it, yes sir.

Jackson has met with the Giants already here. He will not run the 40-yard dash Saturday with the other quarterbacks, but he will throw.

Joc Pederson Authentic Jersey I feel the film speaks for itself with [running], showing off my speed and showing I can make people miss, Jackson said. I just have to show off my arm because that’s where they’re doubting me at.

After the dismal 2017 season ended for the Giants, there were no guarantees Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would return to complete the final year on his contract. It seemed the only way he would come back was if he agreed to a salary reduction, a move from cornerback to safety, or both.

For now, it appears Rodgers-Cromartie will be back, at a new position, as the new Giants coaching staff is moving him to safety, according to reports, a move that makes complete sense given his age and skill set.

Put me anywhere as long as I get on that field a little bit, I don’t mind, Rodgers-Cromartie said the day after the season ended. Free safety, strong safety, linebacker, it don’t matter, just trying to be out there.

Big $5 million payday keeps Eli Manning, Giants bound together

This is the day that the marriage between Eli Manning and the New York Giants officially gets renewed. The two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback earns his $5 million roster bonus Sunday just for being on the 90-man roster.

The bonus was guaranteed as long as Manning was on the roster Sunday, the fifth day of the new league year, a source familiar with his contract said. The Giants’ starting quarterback would’ve had to be cleared off the roster by 4 p.m. ET Saturday not to earn the bonus. That did not happen, and was not expected to.

The $5 million will be paid out to Manning on Wednesday, according to the terms of his current contract.

McCown to the Jets, one year, $5 million signing bonus, $5 million salary. At 39, he’d make the most money of his well-traveled NFL career. McCartney knew now the visit by Cousins was vital—because they might not have great options if for some reason Cousins hated something about the Vikings. Minnesota sent its plane to Atlanta where Cousins was spending time with his in-laws Wednesday at the start of the free agency period—4 p.m. ET. Accompanied by GM Rick Spielman, Cousins and his wife Julie and son Cooper flew to Minneapolis to join a contingent of 13 for dinner Wednesday night, including owner Mark Wilf, coach Mike Zimmer, Spielman, DeFilippo and wife, Stefanski and wife, tight end Kyle Rudolph and wife, and wideout Adam Thielen and wife.

This $1 million clause protects the team in case Sherman isn’t healthy enough or good enough to play every week at something near his previous level. And isn’t that what an incentive clause should be

If Sherman does what he’s done in the past, he’ll make the money. If he doesn’t, he won’t. I do not understand what is wrong or unfair or insane with that. 7. I think the Bengals should wave good-bye to Vontaze Burfict, in the wake of the news that he’s appealing a four-game PED suspension. Burfict was more trouble than he was worth two years ago, and he’s continued to give the Bengals problems.

At some point, you’ve got to say to your locker room: Enough crap with this guy. 8. I think the Justin Pugh signing in Arizona makes the core that GM Jerry Reese left for Dave Gettleman with the Giants even worse. Pugh’s defection means that only one of Reese’s 45 picks in the six drafts from 2008 to 2013 is still on the team. (If you guessed Jason Pierre-Paul, you win.)patriots_038

NFL free agent news: 49ers sign Weston Richburg Jersey to multi-year deal

Wesley Matthews Jersey out for season with leg fracture

Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Wesley Matthews will be sidelined for the rest of the season due to a broken leg, sources said.

The team said that he sustained a fracture to his right proximal fibula during first quarter of Saturday’s win over the Grizzlies but played the rest of that game. The Mavericks did not give a timetable for his return.

I wanted to go somewhere where they had a chance to win, no matter what, Lynn said on Tuesday at his introductory media conference. It seemed like the perfect fit, and I look forward to doing what I have to do, which is take the ball when it is my turn.

Lynn agreed to a $12 million, one-year contract that includes bonuses of $1 million each for pitching 170 and 180 innings. He was given a turn right away and struck out five batters in three hitless innings of an exhibition against Baltimore. He walked one.

The officials love them. As far as getting the calls, since 2009 the Blackhawks have averaged 8:39 penalty minutes per game while the Penguins averaged 11:38. Hence, the Blackhawks are Duke.

Or, in the NHL’s case, Pierre McGuire, and there’s absolutely no comparison between the love P-McG gives Kristopher Letang and the Penguins vs. the Blackhawks. (Heck, McGuire even interviewed to be Pittsburgh’s general manager.) Hence, the Penguins are Duke.

They’re not as clean as you’d think. This was in reference to Duke’s off-court issues that bring shame to the program, to which we’d say that the Blackhawks are in fact Duke.

Kirk Cousins Jersey is now a free agent. How will these 5 NFL teams try to convince him to sign?

Kirk Cousins hitting the open market is a bit of an unprecedented situation. There have been plenty of other big free agents in the history of the NFL, but a Pro Bowl quarterback in the prime of his career being available to all 32 teams isn’t something that happens often … or ever.

Targeting a March 15 return after the current Jets’ road trip, Trouba should be back on fantasy rosters by this coming weekend to stay ahead of the competition. Trouba is squarely deserving of a low-end roster spot among your defensemen, in parts thanks to his competitive ice time and shots on goal totals. It will also be interesting to see the dynamic now that Dustin Byfuglien has awoken from his quasi-slump and is leading the charge among all fantasy defensemen. This could be good or bad for Trouba’s value upon his return, but it’s worth rostering him to find out.

The 2018 NFL Combine is in the books, but before we move on to the draft, let’s take a look at what was a memorable few days in Indianapolis.
Game Youth Ryan Switzer Jersey
There were inspirational moments, like basically everything Shaquem Griffin did this year. There were incredible feats, like Saquon Barkley crushing every part of the combine. And there were some genuine surprises, such as Orlando Brown turning in one of the worst combine performances ever.

And let’s not limit this just to football. Chess, movie trivia, cooking a steak, doesn’t matter. Unsurprisingly, there’s a lot of talented folks in the 2018 draft class:

Washington State OL Cole Madison: If we had skeet shooting out here, I’d be first round, first pick, no hesitation. It’d be a no brainer. It’s all I did in college, just go out shooting with the boys.

Stony Brook OL Timon Parris: One thing I could beat everybody at is sleep. I love to sleep. It doesn’t matter 锟斤拷 mid-day, beginning of the day, night time 锟斤拷 I love to sleep. I try to get it in as much as possible.

Ole Miss OL Rod Taylor: I can dance better than everybody here. I got the big guy moves.

NBA trade rumors: Jazz could move SG Rodney Hood at deadline

With the emergence of Donovan Mitchell, the Jazz have found their future. With Rudy Gobert inside and Mitchell manning the back-court, Utah has a duo that could lead the team for years to come.

Where does that leave Rodney Hood, though? Apparently on the trade block.

According to multiple sources, there is a growing feeling around the league that Utah is looking to move the former 23rd overall pick.

Basically anything outside of that is where Adebayo still has room to grow. He’s finished 63.9 percent of his shots in the restricted area this season off of a steady diet of layups and dunks, but he offers little value outside of the paint. His post-ups in particular have been problematic for the Heat, as he has scored a miserable 22 points on 29 post-up possessions.

It isn’t a large sample size, but Adebayo hasn’t looked comfortable scoring on face-ups and with his back to the basket on those limited possessions. His mind seems to be moving quicker than his feet, and he isn’t comfortable yet finishing plays with floaters and hook shots.

Harden is expected to be limited to 20-25 minutes Thursday. The Rockets then play the Warriors on Saturday in a matchup between the best two teams in the Western Conference.

Head-to-head Each Category allows you to select “X” number of statistical categories. Team totals are accumulated and a win, loss or tie is credited in each category based on the matchup results (i.e. 6-3-1 in a 10 category league). If the league creator sets Home Team wins as a tiebreaker, the home team will win every tied category.

Head-to-head Most Categories allows you to set “X” number of statistical categories. For each scoring period (usually Monday through Sunday) team totals are accumulated in each of the categories. At the end the scoring period the winner is determined by which team wins the most number of categories. The end result is a win (1-0-0), loss (0-1-0) or tie (0-0-1). These results correspond directly to each team’s overall record.

NBA wrap: Giannis Antetokounmpo Jersey leads Bucks comeback over 76ers

Game Womens Drazen Petrovic Jersey The Bucks and 76ers faced off Sunday in a possible future playoff matchup, and MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo proved the difference.
Nike Bruce Ellington Women's Black Limited Jersey: #12 NFL Houston Texans 2016 Salute To Service
Antetokounmpo scored a game-high 35 points with nine rebounds and seven assists, while hitting 14 of 23 shots from the field as the Bucks overcame a 20-point deficit. The 6-11 point guard also did a nice job running the offense against Philadelphia’s underrated defense.

Mavericks rookie Dennis Smith Jr. has enjoyed a phenomenal season, but he was wildly inaccurate in Sunday’s 126-109 loss to the Pelicans. Smith scored 23 points with eight assists, but he shot just 9 of 22 from the floor. Dallas is concentrated on the future, and Smith will have to add some consistency on the court to become a team leader.

Pistons (29-34) at Cavaliers (36-26) 7:00 p.m. ET �� Detroit, after starting out strong following the Blake Griffin trade, has been reeling in recent weeks, losing eight out of their last 10 games. Cleveland has lost three of its last four games. While the Cavaliers are still in position to make the playoffs, this is the type Nene Youth jersey of game they need to win to maintain confidence moving forward.

The Cowboys announced the decision Monday, almost exactly 24 hours before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline for teams to place the franchise tag on pending free agents. Lawrence’s agent, David Canter, wrote on Twitter that his client signed the deal.

Lawrence had the best year of his career in 2017, leading the Cowboys with 14.5 sacks while earning his first Pro Bowl selection. His sack total was tied for second in the league and was the most by a Cowboys player since DeMarcus Ware had 19 in 2011.

Lawrence, who turns 26 in April, entered last season with nine career sacks, with a team-high eight coming in 2015. He had back surgery after the 2015 season and recorded just one sack in 2016 after dealing with back pain for most of the season. He sat out the final three regular-season games that season and underwent a second surgery on his back in January 2017.

Game Womens Derek Stepan Jersey Fully healthy, Lawrence dominated from the start of this past season, picking up at least one sack in each of the first seven games, something only seven other players have done since sacks became an official stat in 1982.

Steelers still not interested in trading Martavis Bryant Jersey

Martavis Bryant gave the Steelers plenty of reasons to give up on him last season, but general manager Kevin Colbert said Wednesday that the team has no interest in trading their big-play wide receiver.

Any NFL team that drafts Toth does so with the understanding that he can only participate in offseason and preseason practices until he’s able to join a reserve unit. That is how New England procured the services of long snapper Joe Cardona after he finalized an offseason arrangement with the Navy reserves.

Toth knows any on-field work he receives will be valuable as he tries to perfect pass-blocking after coming from a run-heavy Army attack. He focused primarily on his sets and trying to quickly learn a pro-style offense in January while participating in the East-West Shrine Game and Reese’s Senior Bowl.

There was an emphasis put on that to show I have the capability of taking what the coaches say and everything from the film room and putting it on the field, Toth Authentic Blair Walsh Jersey said. Often, you kind of get the reference of, ‘This isn’t rocket science.’

It’s kind of funny because my teammates will end up chuckling about that anytime I get it.

The docuseries will follow the Cowboys through their 2017 season, certainly an interesting one. As Amazon’s press release notes, Dallas’ season began with positivity and optimism. Owner Jerry Jones had been elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, coach Jason Garrett was named Coach of the Year after the team went 13-3 in 2016 and hopes abounded for a Super Bowl run. But the team struggled to a 9-7 record in 2017, amid the NFL’s investigation into and subsequent six-game suspension of Ezekiel Elliott and plenty of drama around that.

We are thrilled to have the Dallas Cowboys as the featured team in the third season of Amazon Prime Video’s All of Nothing, Maryann Turcke, President of NFL Media, said. An enormous amount of thanks goes out to the Cowboys organization for their cooperation in filming throughout the season. The team at NFL Films continuously delivers high-quality, engaging content for viewers, and through our collaboration with Amazon, the third season of All or Nothing series will give football fans incredible access into one of the league’s most iconic and celebrated clubs.

Limited Brandon Bollig Jersey Pro Football Talk points out that the ongoing feud between Jones and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell provides a fantastic potential storyline, if NFL Films, which produces the show, chooses to offer that to viewers.

Instead, they’re perched atop the league standings with 86 points, ahead of Eastern Conference-leading Tampa Bay, which has 85.

Yards of total offense between the two teams: 538 for Philadelphia, 613 for New England. Raw yardage isn’t as instructive as averages per play (7.6 for the Eagles and 8.5 for the Patriots), but the total figure is the best illustration of the kind of track meet this Super Bowl was. It was the highest total yardage in a Super Bowl ever by a margin of more than 200 yards. This looked like a Big 12 game at times.

Retired NFL defensive end Stephen White has a track record of making uncannily accurate Super Bowl predictions. Here’s how this year’s game will unfold.

First of all, I’m grateful we live in a place in time where people have the courage to speak up about things like this, Carlisle said. I also have a 13-year-old daughter, and I want her to know that it’s both brave and safe to speak out, and that’s very important to me, and it should be important to everybody. What I can tell you is there is going to be a thorough investigation into this from an outside group led by two people at the top of their profession.

They’re good at trying to recognize what you’re in and Authentic Michael Ferland Jersey trying to take advantage of that, Schwartz says. This is not an offense that you can render ineffective by taking one player away. I’ll give an example: Last week with Gronkowski, with Jacksonville. I mean, he was out of the game, and they were still able to score enough to win the game, and they came back from 10 points down without him. So imagine if that had been Jacksonville’s gameplan: Take Gronkowski out of the game. Well guess what, that was mission accomplished.
