Brian Robison expects to retire after the 2018 season

Vikings defensive end Brian Robison took some time before agreeing to a pay cut to return for a 12th season. He said more than likely this is his final season.

Danielle Hunter took over as the starter at left defensive end last season, but Robison still played 56.5 percent of the team’s defensive snaps. He made 20 tackles and four sacks.

Before this spring, the Capitals had made it past the second round of the playoffs just twice and reached the final once, when Tikkanen and Co. were swept by the Red Wings. Abe and Irene Pollin, the longtime owners of the Capitals and NBA’s Bullets/Wizards, had to learn how to handle losing.

I would love to, anytime we can get into New York. We have the last couple of years, and it’s been great for us, Pikiell told NJ Advance Media. The league dictates a lot of that stuff, but I would love to. We have a ton of alums in New York, and I love New York. It’s the biggest stage.

The dates there are hard to get into and hard to come by, but any time we get a good opportunity to play in those places, we’ll take a good, strong look at it and hopefully take advantage of that.

Penn State coach Pat Chambers told pennlive.com during a recent trip to Manhattan that, after making a surprise appearance in the Big Ten final and then returning to the Garden a few weeks later to win the NIT title, the arena wanted us back and he’s interested in playing more games in New York.

They wanted us to do another game. They tried to get us in their holiday classic, Chambers said during a Penn State Coaches Caravan stop in May. They tried to get us in a one-off. We were all about it. It just didn’t work with the other teams, so we’ll continue to work hard on getting back in the Garden.

Rutgers has played five games at the Garden in Pikiell’s first two seasons, but it did not have any regular season contests there this past season. That is expected to be the case again this coming year, which means the only way the Scarlet Knights will play at the arena is if they make a run to the NIT semifinals.

Next project for Pat Hobbs?

Johnny Manziel shows flashes in ‘fun’ CFL debut

Johnny Manziel is adjusting to life in the Canadian Football League one throw at a time.

The former NFL quarterback completed 9 of 11 passes for 80 yards in his CFL preseason debut Friday, but he failed to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to points on any of his five offensive possessions.

After shaking off some of the rust, Manziel is focused on continuing to learn the offense and improving his game.

These games for us are pretty much a glorified another day at practice, Manziel said. We get to come out here, fans get to come out, but other than that for us what we’re doing is what we’ve been doing at training camp. Just another day in a bigger stadium against a different team, so it was good. Look forward to next week. Look forward to this season. We’ve got great guys on this team. I love my teammates. It’s been fun to be here.

Manziel is expected to see more action when Hamilton concludes its preseason schedule against Montreal on June 9.

I’m not going 1-15, Jackson said January of 2017 (per ESPN). No. I’ll be swimming in that lake over there somewhere. That’s not happening.

Well, the Browns had an even worse 2017 season, finishing 0-16, and Jackson held up his end of the deal he made 18 months ago.

He led a group of about 150 employees, including Browns owner Dee Haslam, into Lake Erie Friday and called the plunge a cleanse. Jackson shouted, No more freakin’ losing! as he jumped into the 72 degree water.

Jumping into the lake wasn’t just about staying true to his word, though. It was also a charitable event to support the Hue Jackson Foundation, which fights human trafficking.

Jackson pledged to donate $100 for every Browns employee who joined him on the jump and owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam agreed to match the donation, bringing the total to $30,000 raised.

Those people have been with me every day, Jackson said, per Ohio.com. When you lose a game and you lose as many games as we have and you keep parking your car and walking into the building and have to see those faces each and every day, I carry them with me.

Peyton Manning Jersey lawyer did more debunking than confirming of Charlie Sly’s claims

The Al Jazeera story about PED use in sports has resurfaced in recent days, thanks to the lingering defamation litigation filed by Ryan Zimmerman and Ryan Howard, two baseball players implicated in the documentary. And the effort by Al Jazeera to avoid liability has pulled Peyton Manning’s name into the case.
Limited Wayne Gallman Youth White Nike Jersey - #22 NFL New York Giants Rush Vapor Untouchable
After meeting with attorney Matthew D. McGill, a partner with the law firm of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, Al Jazeera DROPPED those allegations from the documentary, apparently because Al Jazeera had become convinced by McGill that Sly was not making credible claims about Peyton Manning. Al Jazeera claims that McGill became a second source who confirmed much of what Sly had said.

The information from McGill surely had an impact on Al Jazeera. Beyond abandoning the specific contentions regarding Peyton Manning, Al Jazeera reporter Deborah Davies emphasized in a December 2015 interview on Today that the Al Jazeera documentary was making no claims about Peyton Manning.

The only allegation in the program from Charlie Sly is that growth hormone was sent repeatedly from the Guyer [Institute] to Ashley Manning in Florida, Davies said at the time. We’re not making the allegation against Peyton Manning. . . . Let’s make it clear what the allegation is. The allegation in the program is very simple, that when Charlie Sly worked in the Guyer [Institute] doing part of his training . Womens Robert Nkemdiche Jersey . . the clinic was sending out not one shipment but repeated shipments of growth hormone to Ashley Manning in Florida. That’s it.

Now, Al Jazeera still hopes to bolster Sly’s credibility as it relates to the things he said about Zimmerman and Howard, claiming that McGill confirmed much of Sly’s allegations about Peyton Manning.

McClain will meet with the 49ers on Monday, according to a report from NFL Network. He also visited with the Dolphins late last week.

Consequently, I have several questions for Chicago Bears ownership on this policy, as well as your intentions to enforce it, and your plans to implement it at the team level. In particular, I would like answers to the following questions:

Did you have knowledge of a vote on the new anthem policy prior to the March 22 owners meeting in Orlando?

Neither you nor the Chicago Bears have issued a statement regarding your vote in this process. Did you vote to affirm this policy, did you abstain or were you not present at the meeting?

How do the Chicago Bears plan to implement this policy change at the team level? Will players have advance notice of team-level policy changes before reporting to Training Camp? Do the Chicago Bears plan to incorporate player feedback into crafting the team level policy?

For Happ, it all brought back pleasant memories of a brief Phillies career from 2008-2010 that included a 2008 World Series ring and a 2009 campaign where he challenged for Rookie of the Year.

I’m proud of it, I can say that, said Happ of his career. I’ve had some ups and downs like pretty much everybody. I’m still here battling and competing at a high level and making the game fun.

Happ is a free agent at the end of Jimmy Foxx Womens Jersey this season, and the Blue Jays are just 24-28 – 12 games back in the division and seven in the wild card. The Phillies, who have been linked to former ace Hamels, could use a left-handed starter, but Happ said he hasn’t thought about moving on.

It’s still early, I’ve been through that plenty of times now, said Happ. Leaving (Philadelphia) was really emotional – it was a shock – but I’d be better able to handle (another trade), I think.

Asked what he still had left to accomplish, Happ said going back to the postseason. Since leaving the Phillies, he has been to the playoffs once – with Toronto in 2016 – though the Phillies, who are at the end of a painful rebuild, haven’t been back to the postseason since 2011.

Former Redskin A.J. Francis Jersey blasts team on Instagram, says logo is ‘racist’

Former Redskins lineman A.J. Francis finally feels appreciated. He let his social media followers know Wednesday.
Men's Nike Oakland Raiders #24 Willie Brown Game White NFL Jersey
Francis was released by Washington after the team selected defensive linemen in the first and fifth rounds of the NFL Draft last weekend.

Xavier Ouellet Jersey After inking a new contract Wednesday with the NFC East rival Giants, Francis took to Instagram to express his displeasure with the way his time in Washington ended.

It’s a traditional play. I mean, when football started, that’s how they started the game,DeCamillis said. That’s something that’s got to be looked at. You know you’re always wanting to try and preserve that Anthony Beauvillier Jersey as much as you can.

(The goal is to) just go take a snap and have some fun, Manziel told reporters Tuesday, via TSN. There’s no pressure, there’s no ‘go out and throw 10 touchdown passes in one drive.’ It’s just ball.

Hamilton coach June Jones announced earlier this week that Manziel will play Friday night in the Tiger-Cats’ preseason opener against the Toronto Argonauts. Manziel admitted he has more to learn but said he feels comfortable with his knowledge of the team’s offense and compared it to the plays he ran while playing at Texas A&M.

The Seahawks shock everyone with their pick of a running back who wasn’t expected to go until the second day. But they could get the last laugh with a highly productive college player who has all kinds of big-game ability. Seattle’s backfield has been ugly post-Beast Mode, and Penny has workhorse potential. Don’t be surprised if this pick becomes a lot shinier than it looks now.

The Steelers have Sean Davis strong safety and Morgan Burnett at free safety, so this is a bit of reach in the first round with the future of their defense in mind rather than their bigger need at inside linebacker. Edmunds in time can become the hard-hitting leader Troy Polamalu once was, but he’s not the same kind of freelancer against the pass.

Raiders sign Maurice Hurst, Marcell Ateman Jersey

Limited Mens Marcus Sherels Jersey The Raiders got two more draft picks under contract, including one who represented a chances some teams weren’t willing to take.
Men's Reebok Anders Lee Premier Green NHL Jersey: New York Islanders #27 Salute to Service
Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey The team announced the signings of fifth-round draft defensive tackle Maurice Hurst and seventh-round wide receiver Marcell Ateman.

Hurst was considered a first-round talent, but slid for reasons including an irregular heartbeat. He’s vowed to use the snub as motivation, as players picked places other than first overall tend to do.

The Rockets continued their well-worn strategy in this series of manipulating the Golden State defense in an effort to draw Curry in the Warriors’ switching scheme. Curry stood up to the pressure reasonably well, as the Rockets weren’t terribly efficient on those possessions, converting 7 of 14 shots when Curry was the primary defender, with one turnover and zero trips to the line.

Earlier in the series, when he couldn’t find the bottom of the basket, Curry was encouraged by Steve Kerr. The Warriors coach told him the floodgates would open in this series. In Game 3, the prophecy came true, as the waters of the San Francisco Bay found their way into Oracle Arena.

Capitals coach Barry Trotz reiterated that players selected in the expansion draft were not cast-offs in the traditional sense.

They got a lot of players from other hockey teams that we didn’t want to lose, he said. I know they always say we didn’t want those players. Well, we all did. The rules were the rules. They did a great job.

Trotz was the head coach of the Nashville Predators when they joined the Brian Hartline Jersey league in 1998 with less favorable draft rules. But he sees similarities between how his team bonded and how the Knights jelled — with one significant difference.

I’ve been a part of that process. There’s nothing tighter than that first-year group. There’s no preconceived notion. There’s no leadership in place. Nobody knows where to live. It’s galvanizing. Unfortunately, there was also tragedy in Vegas, which galvanized them even more, Trotz said in reference to the mass shooting on Oct. 1, 2017, when a gunman opened fire on a crowd on the Las Vegas Strip, leaving 58 people dead and 851 injured. The Golden Knights played their first home game 10 days later.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the team has released Kendricks.

Our intention is to expand on those things that he can do well and things he may not have been exposed to yet.

It helps that they brought in some more help for him this offseason, beyond upgrading from Mike Shula to Turner. They remade their receivers room for a threadbare bunch in last year’s playoffs, adding veterans Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright and using their first-round pick on D.J. Moore. Coupled with extending tight end Greg Olsen and signing a 1,000-yard running back in C.J. Anderson to complement Christian McCaffrey, the Panthers are suddenly deeper at the skill positions than they’ve been in some time.

Reyes burst onto the scene as a rookie with the Cardinals in 2016, when he went 4-1 with a 1.57 ERA in 12 games, including five starts. The Cardinals had debated using Reyes as a reliever upon his return to the majors to limit his workload less than two years removed from the elbow surgery.

But injuries to veterans Carlos Martinez and Adam Wainwright have left the Cardinals short-handed in their rotation, opening spots for Reyes and fellow youngster Jack Flaherty, who had 13 strikeouts in Sunday’s victory over the Phillies.

He gave up the home runs, two of them to a young guy that seems to be very hot right now, manager Jeff Banister said.

Aaron Judge and Neil Walker also went deep against Colon. Judge’s 12th homer, leading off the fifth, snapped a 4-all tie and put the Yankees ahead to stay. Aaron Hicks added a two-run homer in the ninth for New York, which had a season-high 10 extra-base hits with only two singles.

It’s awesome, it’s fun, Hicks said. We can attack from the top to the bottom, and everybody contributes.

Masahiro Tanaka (5-2) limited the Texas to three hits over five innings, but walked four and gave up two homers. The right-hander struck out three.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
