Richardson, 81, announced he was selling the team in December after the league took over an investigation looking into allegations of workplace misconduct. The NFL investigation remains ongoing. The Panthers officially went up for sale following the team’s wild-card loss in January. Richardson, the franchise founder, ceded day-to-day control of the team in December to Tina Becker, a 20-year employee of the team who was promoted to chief operating officer.

We always err on the side of hiring a firm who understands all the laws, follows them, state and federal, Wood told ESPN on Saturday, so that we don’t happen upon something that we’re not entitled to have nor would we be able to use.

In this case, it meant following both federal law and the state laws of Massachusetts and Michigan. The Fair Credit Reporting Act does not allow felony arrests that did not result in convictions beyond seven years old to be considered in possible employment, so most search firms do not include that information on the background checks they provide to employers — and that includes the Lions.

The indictment was brought by the grand jury, but Patricia never stood trial, and the case was dismissed in January 1997, when the woman who made the accusation declined to testify.

Cardinals QB Josh Rosen signs four-year rookie deal

It took just one day back in the Arizona Cardinals facility for Josh Rosen to sign his rookie deal.

The No. 10 overall pick in the 2018 draft signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, one day before the Cardinals are to begin their three-day rookie minicamp.

The contract will pay Rosen nearly $17.84 million over four years with a signing bonus of about $11 million. As with all first-round rookie deals, the former UCLA quarterback’s contract includes a fifth-year option for 2022.

There’s a mental toughness component to all of this. The tougher mentally you are, you can be put in sub-optimal conditions and that’s what separates you from the competition. I admire the mentality of throw me anywhere. Going through (Nick) Markakis and (Freddie) Freeman in the sixth one night and the eighth the next, you should want that spot.

What spot will Neris be in the next time he enters the game?

I’m not going to rush him out there. I don’t want to expose him. I mean, he’ll be ready when he’s ready and when we feel he’s ready, Pederson said.

The Yankees (27-12) avoided their first losing streak of more than two games this season. They had lost consecutively four times this year. They started the day tied with the Red Sox for first place in the American League East.

Gary Sanchez, rookies Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres and Walker each have provided walk-off heroics.

We just never know what’s going to happen, Judge said. You never know who’s going to be the star of the game.

The Yankees got a huge assist from A.J. Cole. He hadn’t pitched since April 28 and then held the A’s scoreless in the 10th and 11th innings, striking out four batters.

It does reflect well on Smith, who has been often criticized during his career but has put together a really solid 12-year resume as he heads to his third team, the Washington Redskins. If Smith wants a job in football afterward as a coach or executive, the selflessness he showed to Mahomes will be remembered and seen as a positive.

That doesn’t mean Roethlisberger should be Rudolph’s mentor. But Smith showed it can be done. Former Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith (11) and Patrick Mahomes (15) celebrate after a win against the Dolphins last season.

He’ll meet me halfway out on the field to answer a question for me, Roethlisberger told USA Today in 2005, via The MMQB. I owe so much of my success to his help. Given that and Mahomes’ comments about Smith, it’s a bit jarring to hear Roethlisberger basically say he won’t mentor Rudolph. Mahomes clearly benefited from having Smith as a teammate. His comments weren’t just Darron Lee Authentic Jersey general praise for Smith to avoid a touchy subject either; Mahomes provided specific details on how Smith helped him to The MMQB. Alex showed me how to make the reads easier so I can process faster and play faster, Mahomes told Vrentas.

Maybe not at his best, but still a pretty dominating performance, Boone said.

Martinez聽was impressed… enough so that Severino was anointed a strong candidate to elevate his game to the point where no starting pitcher in baseball is on his level.
Elite Wesley Johnson Jersey
On the sideline, the coaches and I decided we would call two plays to ensure we got a good call. The problem was as I stood at the line of scrimmage that the Lions changed the defense from what they used all game. Without knowing for sure what they would be in, I changed both plays and went to ‘Tennessee, Tennessee.’ You see, I didn’t know what the perfect play was versus their coverage, but I did know I had the perfect player.

Jason made a move that was rare but brought him wide open. Any high school QB could have delivered that ball. The secret to the play was trusting the best player to be the best player… and he was. Jason, you have set the standard for every player and coach who walks through the Cowboys facility that there’s one way to play and there’s one way to practice. And guess what, you can be a great teammate and husband and father while doing it.

Mike McCarthy: DeShone Kizer Jersey would be a first-round pick in this year’s draft

Packers coach Mike McCarthy has high praise for the backup quarterback Green Bay acquired this offseason, DeShone Kizer.
Youth Nike Cleveland Browns #80 Ricardo Louis Orange Alternate Vapor Untouchable Elite Player NFL Jersey
McCarthy said Kizer compares to the elite prospects in this year’s draft, Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen and Josh Rosen.
Youth Clay Matthews Jersey
He has starter ability in this league. Clearly, McCarthy said. In my opinion, if he was in that class this year, he would have been part of the first five quarterbacks, the first-round guys. He has exceptional arm talent.

That doesn’t make a lot of sense: Last year Kizer went in the latter part of the second round, No. 52 overall. Kizer did not have a good rookie year, which is why the Browns sent him to Green Bay. So if Kizer wasn’t a first-round pick a year ago, and didn’t have a good year, why would he be a first-round pick this year?

With that in mind, here’s the current season’s table, though April 23.

Youth Brandon Sutter Jersey Note the number of cold games is at least 50 percent greater this season, amplifying just how historically poor the conditions have been. As expected, home runs are way down in those contests, though run-scoring matches the warmest conditions.

Manziel has seemed hesitant to play in the CFL in large part because that league requires players to sign two-year contracts. So if Manziel agreed to play for the Tiger-Cats, he’d be out of the NFL for 2018 and 2019. He wants to return to the NFL sooner than that.

CFL training camps open in two weeks, so Manziel may not have much more time to make up his mind. Assuming no NFL team is going to offer him a shot in training camp, Manziel’s next-best option would be to get himself into top shape to play for the Alliance of American Football, which starts play in early 2019. That league would allow Manziel to sign on for one season and be available for NFL training camps in 2019.

Manziel’s last NFL game was in 2015. He recently played minor league Crockett Gillmore Authentic Jersey ball with the Spring League.

One reason OKC is so tough? They out-hustle opponents. The Thunder rank first in the NBA in both deflections and loose balls recovered. Leading the way are their two best players: George’s 3.9 deflections per game led the NBA, as did Westbrook’s 2.2 loose balls recovered per game.

Raiders cut Armonty Bryant Jersey and Cory James; sign six undrafted rookies

Mikhail Sergachev Authentic Jersey
Ray Allen Authentic Jersey The Raiders parted ways with a couple of players on Friday while also welcoming six undrafted rookies to the roster.
Nike NFL Julius Peppers White Jersey Men's Game: #90 Carolina Panthers Road
Defensive end Armonty Bryant was released with a non-football illness designation and linebacker Cory James was waived with an injury designation. Bryant signed with the team in April and James, a 2016 sixth-round pick, ended last season, his second in Oakland, on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Michel figures to step into an early-down role that will provide a significant chunk of the carries and goal line work but not many targets (think LeGarrette Blount, Stevan Ridley and Mike Gillislee). Rex Burkhead and James White also will Nicklas Lidstrom Authentic Jersey be heavily involved, which certainly caps Michel’s fantasy upside a bit, especially in PPR. Still, this is an extremely high-scoring offense, and Michel can push for 10 touchdowns if he earns lead back duties. He has the early look of a flex target.

As the 13th overall pick in the draft, Payne is due an $8.65 million signing bonus on a four-year deal with a total value of $14.54 million. He鈥檒l count $2.64 million against Washington鈥檚 salary cap this year.

Payne, who will turn 21 in two weeks, was first-team All-SEC at Alabama, and the co-MVP of the national championship game.

Washington also signed six other rookies: defensive lineman Tim Settle, running back Derrius Guice, safety Troy Apke, linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton, cornerback Greg Stroman and wide receiver Trey Quinn have signed their first NFL contracts.

Atlanta entered draft weekend with significant depth concerns at wide receiver behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Consider the hole filled after Ridley was scooped up in the first round.

What players and teams “won” the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Thursday night?

While some players were selected earlier than expected and some teams ended up with great value, other players fell and other teams reached.

Before the lazy QB comparisons to what’s his name, let’s keep in mind Mayfield is a lot more talented and a little taller than that other guy who, by the way, was taken 21 picks later four long years ago. Cleveland could afford to be enamored by Mayfield’s upside with Tyrod Taylor as the short-term solution. In the end, the Browns needed someone with a loaded college winning resume and an “it” factor. After looking closer at Mayfield’s arm and accuracy and less at his athleticism, this pick made a lot more sense for both sides.

Scott Schebler (L), 12 percent, Cincinnati Reds at Minnesota Twins (RHP Jake Odorizzi): Odorizzi started strong, but he’s run into trouble recently, allowing five homers over his last two starts. If he continues to miss his spots on Saturday, Schebler and his .257 career ISO against righties can make him pay.

Adam Frazier (L), 3 percent, Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Detroit Tigers (RHP Jordan Zimmermann): A whopping 44 of Frazier’s 45 career extra-base hits have come against righties, yielding an ISO that is 126 points higher than his work against lefties. Meanwhile, Zimm allowed a .291/.336/.477 line against lefties in 2015-17 and it’s been even worse so far this year at .314/.368/.514. Consider any Pittsburgh lefty against Zimmermann.

Dave Gettleman didn’t disappoint the Big Blue faithful or Barkley by making this the “gold jacket-type” player of choice. New York, only two years removed from making the playoffs on the strength of its defense, needed a feature running back a lot more than a future franchise quarterback. Barkley will go to work and be as explosive as he was at Penn State.

The Jets were attached to Darnold before the beginning of last season, when he was set to be the No. 1 overall pick while they were the absolute worst team in the NFL. It all lined up in the end, as the team desperately needed a rookie capable of handling the big-market spotlight. Darnold and Cleveland never felt like a good player-city match.

Youth Willie McGee Authentic Green Majestic Jersey: MLB St. Louis Cardinals #51 Salute to Service
Guice tumbled to the second round, but he lands in a spot where he likely becomes the starter right away ahead of incumbent Robert Kelley. Many saw as the class’ second-ranked聽running back behind Barkley, and coach Jay Dana Barros Authentic Jersey Gruden has already talked about using him on first and second downs as Washington emphasizes improving a 28th-ranked rushing attack.

Though he registered 1,026 touches at Oregon, Freeman should still have plenty left in the early part of his career. He was slowed by a knee injury in 2016, but he has the power, vision聽and speed聽to make plays in Denver’s offense. With only Devontae Booker as his main competition for the starter’s role, Freeman should see plenty of work early and could become one of the surprises of the draft.

Game Mens Carlos Martinez Jersey Still, the Cowboys got an excellent player 50th overall in Connor Williams, who will further strengthen what’s arguably the league’s top O-line. WR Michael Gallup (3rd round) and TE Dalton Schultz (4th) won’t make anyone forget Dez Bryant or Witten, but that shouldn’t be the expectation. Trading for versatile Tavon Austin was a low-risk investment at the cost of a sixth rounder. Fifth-round QB Mike White could give Cooper Rush a summer battle to be Dak Prescott’s backup.聽

Lamar Jackson is going to be on the field Week 1, La Canfora said. Maybe it’s three plays, maybe it’s eight plays. He’s going to be on the field Week 5, and maybe it’s 10 plays and maybe it’s 15 plays, depending on how the offense goes. I don’t think they’re going to throw him into the deep end too soon, but they will create packages for him immediately.

Frankly, I have no idea, he replied. He noted, though, that Trump might be speculating about something more significant than simply replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Jay Cutler Game Jersey Although it would violate norms that have been in place since Watergate, Seidman wrote, Trump could simply order Sessions or Rosenstein to do things.聽Some of these orders might violate existing DOJ [regulations], but he could also order them to repeal the regs. He could then fire them if they refused. Doing these things would impose political costs 鈥?but the legal protections against this sort of thing are thin.

Let’s start with that first point, that Trump could order his officials at Justice to perform certain actions, such as releasing documents or firing Mueller. Trump is Sessions’s boss, just as he is the boss of the heads of the other administrative departments.

Report: Willie Snead Jersey Will Play for Ravens After Saints Decline to Match Contract

The Baltimore Ravens聽signed聽Willie Snead to a two-year, $10.4 million offer sheet, and the New Orleans Saints have decided against matching the contract, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Women's Ottawa Senators #10 Tom Pyatt Adidas Green Authentic Salute To Service NHL Jersey
Undrafted out of Ball State, Snead bounced around from team to team before finding a home in Louisiana near the end of the 2014 season. Snead won a roster spot with a strong training camp the following year and has since become a playmaker in Sean Payton’s offense.

In three seasons with the Saints, the 5’11, 195-pound receiver hauled in 149 catches for 1,971 yards and seven touchdowns.

There’s nothing to lose at rock bottom, so why shouldn’t a zero-win team double down?
Ryan Suter Limited Jersey
The less risky version of this plan would have Cleveland using one of its two first-round picks on a quarterback and then one of its two early-second-round selections on another one. That would still be more extreme than the Washington Redskins’ taking Robert Griffin III second overall and then grabbing Kirk Cousins in the fourth round in 2012, and it would give the Browns a shot at a surprise franchise quarterback (Cousins, Russell Wilson, Derek Carr and Dak Prescott have recently inspired hope after being picked outside Round 1).

But as many as six quarterbacks could be drafted in the first round this year, and Womens Telvin Smith Jersey the best way for Cleveland to maximize its odds of landing a franchise signal-caller is to select two of the top four (Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Baker Mayfield).

A consensus All-American, Hurst finished the year with 61 tackles (14 1/2 for a loss) and five sacks. One of the most explosive players off the line in college football, Hurst at one point was rated as the top player in America by Pro Football Focus, regardless of position.聽

Part of the reason why I came back was to put myself in this position, to maybe get drafted as high as possible, Hurst said last fall. You play football since you were a little kid and you always dream of one day maybe playing in the NFL. It’s a dream I’ve always had and it’s something I look forward to.聽

Known for his strength and speed, Hurst’s final two seasons at Michigan were disruptive for opposing offenses, and he helped Michigan finish in the top three in total defense in 2016 and 2017.聽

I had a first-round grade on him, ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay said Saturday.聽

Yadier Molina Limited Jersey Hurst聽played with the heart condition聽during his Michigan聽career. He is the ninth Michigan defensive lineman drafted since 2010 and the eighth of defensive line coach Greg Mattison’s second tenure with the program (2011-present).

Gang Green selected Darnold with the No. 3-overall pick on Thursday night, a slight surprise because Darnold had been projected to go No. 1 by many people for the past month.

This isn’t to say that Mayfield can’t play. It’s that he’s not worth that high a pick, by a long shot.

The bottom line with the Browns is the reason they are, well, the Browns, is they blow key opportunities like this one. Teams cannot waste top picks and still survive as a franchise.

Maybe one day, maybe even next year, I will be writing an apology to the Browns and Mayfield.

By now, you’ve probably heard about the racist tweets from 2012 and 2013, first reported by Yahoo, from quarterback Josh Allen, who was drafted No. 7 by Buffalo. There are many things to examine about this story on numerous levels.

The place to begin is with reaction around the league. I spoke to several different league sources, including players, assistant coaches and front office executives.

First, we need to acknowledge the weird world we inhabit, in which we are talking about the tweets of a high schooler. But this is the draft world where we reside.

Carr’s been through this rodeo before. The Raiders ‘ quarterback is on his fourth offensive coordinator in five years. This change, however, comes with some familiarity. Oakland’s new OC, Greg Olson, was Carr’s coordinator as a rookie. The QB said that while there are some differences in how Gruden’s offense will run, knowing Olsen’s tendency will make the transition easier.

I don’t know about the guys that weren’t here with Oly, but for me that’s made it easy, Carr said. The terminology, the way they call certain things, that has been kind of similar. Obviously coach Gruden brings on his own stuff doing it that way, but yes, there are some similarities.

Carr said despite being at the outset of offseason work he’s already mentally in synch with the coaching staff.

We’re about 90 percent there, where we’re speaking the same Dustin Tokarski Womens Jersey language, Carr said. We’ve got the gist of each other. We know what we’re saying. Once we get rolling, it’s going to be awesome. It already is. I love every part of the process . . . there are teams that have been in the same system for 15 years. We have to do that in a hurry.

White Sox’s Danny Farquhar walking, ‘moving in positive direction’

Chicago White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar has been able to go on light walks and remains in stable condition in intensive care after suffering a brain aneurysm last weekend, manager Rick Renteria said.

Farquhar underwent surgery Saturday, a day after suffering what the team announced as a brain hemorrhage stemming from a ruptured aneurysm.

“He is progressing positively, and everyone is very thankful for that,” Renteria said Thursday. “It’s all still guarded and very delicate, but we’re happy to report that it’s moving in a positive direction.”

“It’s a small world, but in this small world, we’re fortunate to live at this very comfortable level, and there is a lot of the world that doesn’t,” she said. “It’s a small world, and you notice that when you travel a lot. There’s a pretty high demand of people needing help.

“It definitely showed me that, and it definitely sparked some additional [ideas for] trips and charitable efforts in the future.”

Now it’s back to racing work for a couple of days as she prepares for her final race. In November, Patrick announced that she would compete in the 2018 Daytona 500 and the 2018 Indianapolis 500 to complete her racing career.

She has focused much of her time on her businesses outside the race car, including a winery, a diet-and-fitness book and a clothing line. But the next four weeks likely will be intense as she makes one last effort to win the Indianapolis 500. She will sport the familiar green colors of GoDaddy and hopes most things will seem familiar as she steps into the Ed Carpenter Racing car.

The Ravens’ interest in Bryant dates back to the 2010 draft, when it appeared they were going to have a shot at selecting him with the No. 25 overall pick. But the Cowboys traded three spots up and chose Bryant just ahead of Baltimore.

After Bryant turned down the offer, the Ravens signed receiver Willie Snead.

The Cowboys released Bryant on April 13. He played eight seasons in Dallas and finished his time with the Cowboys with a team-record 73 touchdown receptions to go with 531 catches for 7,459 yards in 113 games.

Bryant amassed more than 1,000 yards receiving, with double-digit touchdowns, for three straight seasons from 2012 to 2014. But his production slipped after signing a five-year, $70 million contract in 2015. He did not record a 1,000-yard season over the next three years and was slowed by foot and knee injuries. He played in every game last season and had 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns.

Bryant was set to make $12.5 million this season. He has said about his exit from Dallas that he “should’ve been better at controlling my emotions” and that he “should’ve been a better professional,” but added that football is “the love of my life.”dolphins_073
