The #Titans have officially picked up the fifth-year option for QB Marcus Mariota, source said. 鈥? Not a surprise, GM Jon Robinson has said as much publicly.

Mariota, a third-year pro out of Oregon, regressed last season while battling injuries. He threw for just 3,232 yards and 13 touchdowns with 15 interceptions to finish the year with a tough 79.3 QB rating. In 2016, Mariota threw for 3,426 yards and 26 touchdowns with nine interceptions 鈥?good for a 95.6 QB rating.

The playoffs begin with wild-card weekend on Jan. 5-6. The Super Bowl is Feb. 3 in Atlanta.

Barkley validated his on-field success with an eye-opening combine Womens Jay Bromley Jersey and was atop more than a few teams’ draft boards. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds, did 29 reps on the bench press and had a 41-inch vertical jump.

The most pro-ready of the bunch comes armed with baggage 鈥?durability (two concussions, shoulder) and his love for the game. Silky smooth throwing motion. Is he too smart for his own good? Too entitled? How much does he love football? Why would UCLA coach Jim Mora say that Darnold would be a better fit in Cleveland?

A spitting image of me, according to Michael Vick. A taller, righthanded version. Former dual threat Heisman Trophy winner who will need time and a system designed for him. The most spectacular athlete in this draft, NFL analyst Mike Mayock says.

The discussion and the opportunity is still open, Carroll said on KJR, via Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune.

Carroll added that he hasn’t spoken to Kaepernick and that he’s not going there when asked how Kaepernick’s plans for the national anthem figure into the team’s thoughts. General Manager John Schneider has spoken to Kaepernick’s camp, but said that’s what I can’t get into when asked if the meeting was cancelled because Kaepernick refused to assure the team he wouldn’t take a knee during the anthem.

No Kentucky Derby Jersey for Gronkowski the horse

Anyone hoping to see Rob Gronkowski celebrating his namesake horse’s win at this year’s Kentucky Derby will have to find something else to root for at the track.

Gronkowski the horse will not be running at Churchill Downs on May 5. After a Authentic Mario Hezonja Jersey report on Monday of a setback that could dash plans for a Derby run, the horse’s owners announced that the horse has indeed been scratched. The horse ran a fever over the weekend that required antibiotics and won’t be making the trip to Louisville as a result.

We are beyond disappointed that Gronkowski will miss the Kentucky Derby, Tom Ludt of Phoenix Thoroughbred said. To have a Derby contender with our first group of three-year-olds was a dream come true, and to have had New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski join us on that journey made it even more exciting. But we must put the welfare of the horse first and we will look forward to the colt recovering quickly and to his future races.

The Giants, for now, are not actively trying to deal Flowers, but given his no-show status, they are interested in hearing what he might be worth. Can they get a fifth- or sixth-round pick in this week’s draft for him? Or, could they package Flowers and their own fifth-round pick and get back a fourth-round pick?

The tweets, all of which have since been deleted, were published by Yahoo Sports. Some contain some racially insensitive, and well, just stupid messages. The kind of things dumb high school kids say, if those high school kids grow up without realizing there are certain words they don’t get to say, even if they use the casual version that ends with an -a (though there were a few that include the full N word).

There’s no excuse (other than youthful ignorance) for the tweets themselves, but there are a few other layers of shamefulness involved here.
Limited Womens Callan Foote Jersey
First, his agents should have plowed through his 9,051 tweets at some point well before the eve of the draft, found the offensive ones, and deleted them before anyone had a chance to embarrass him with his own words.

There’s also something disturbing about anyone going through the tweets of a teenager looking for smear material, as has happened in recent years to athletes and others. But when people go looking for the spotlight of social media, eventually it’s going to shine back on them, and illuminate every fault.

That would be appreciated, he was told.

Bruce Arians: Cardinals should take Lamar Jackson and not look back

If Bruce Arians was still the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, you can bet he’d be banging on the table — hard, we might add — for general manager Steve Keim to draft Lamar Jackson to be the quarterback of the future.

Nowadays, Arians is working on becoming an NFL analyst. He recently spoke with Bob McManaman of AZCentral Sports and made it clear that Arizona, which has the No. 15 overall pick, shouldn’t hesitate to spend that pick on Jackson.

The Golden Knights, especially the Marchessault-William Karlsson-Reilly Smith line, dictated the pace of play against the Kings. This could be the weak point if they match up against a team like San Jose or Winnipeg. The Sharks and Jets have been feasting on high-leverage chances, with 29 and 35 respectively. Still, Vegas opened the season at long odds, and now they’ll be one of the final eight teams left. The Golden Knights have the skill to win it all. At this point, I expect to see the Stanley Cup at Cirque du Soleil this June.

His play drew crowds where there had been none and caught the attention of the NFL’s greatest coach. While some compared Agganis to Sid Luckman and Sammy Baugh, Brown merely said Agganis would succeed Graham.

Brown offered Agganis $50,000 to join the Browns, according to a bio on The Agganis Foundation website, but Agganis turned it down.

He decided instead to join the Boston Red Sox for less money, saying he had proven himself in football and he wanted to prove himself in baseball.

The tale took place in a different era in the NFL. The draft was not the colossal show it is now, and research on players was minuscule compared to today. But Agganis is a cautionary tale both about first-round picks and about quarterbacks. Even with the smartest minds at work, it sometimes does not work out, and the Browns have proven that in their 67 years in the NFL.

Nicky Delmonico (L), 2 percent, Chicago White Sox at Oakland Athletics (RHP Daniel Mengden): It’ll be interesting to see if the timing of the White Sox is affected by the team’s long layoff. Delmonico has settled into the five-hole against right-handers, sporting a nice .862 OPS early.

Belichick creates impression that he wants Lamar Jackson Jersey

While the manner in which the top five quarterbacks will exit the board isn’t known, two things have become accepted in recent weeks. One, Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson may be the last of the five taken. Two, he nevertheless will be taken in round one.
Limited Julius Thomas Jersey Andrew Luck Men's Game White Jersey: Nike NFL Indianapolis Colts Road #12
While it may be a stretch at this point to believe that Brady and Belichick are totally in cahoots when it comes to manipulating the draft board, Belichick typically doesn’t tip his hand about his draft plans. And by typically doesn’t, I mean he never, ever, ever does.

Belichick, who learned football strategy at the knee of his father, a long-time member of the Naval Academy football program, realizes the tactical value of information and the lack thereof. Everything he says and does has a reason. And if he secretly covets Lamar Jackson, Belichick will be doing everything he can to keep that a secret.

According to Mike Jones of USA Today, the Texans have informed the veteran right tackle he’s being released, and he’s filing a grievance against the team for an unpaid roster bonus.

Newton tore both patella tendons in 2016 and missed all of last season, and they admitted he probably wasn’t going to be ready until closer to training camp than next week.

They failed him on his team physical on Mar. 23, but according to Jones he got a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews who said he was fit to take part in workouts. He had a $500,000 roster bonus due on April 1, which they haven’t paid.

It was true and obvious that Chase Daniel Authentic Jersey there were empties in Oakland on Sunday, but they never mentioned that the A’s never have that many fans in the stands.

Jameis Winston Jersey still hasn’t heard from NFL regarding investigation

The NFL’s investigation into Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is into its fifth month.
Youth Sam Martin Limited White Nike Jersey: NFL Detroit Lions #6 Road Vapor Untouchable
But the league still hasn’t talked to Winston himself, regarding allegations of groping an Uber driver in March 2016.

Laura Ingraham may want basketball players to just shut up and dribble, but the Washington Examiner’s Siraj Hashmi suggests NBA stars have struck a successful balancing act between remaining respectful and speaking out on selective social issues. After all, he notes, pro hoop players stand for the national anthem (they’re required to by league rules) and give back to their communities in meaningful ways. A new video by players about the recent Sacramento police shooting of Stephon Clark makes no demands for extreme action, just accountability. Indeed, they’re being reasonable, and, above all, they’re not opining on politics at every waking moment. They speak up when they have to, and they don’t let it define who they are. Maybe that’s why, unlike the NFL, the NBA is enjoying a ratings surge.

He joins Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis and Anthony Brown at corner. Xavier Woods can play corner and safety, and Jeff Heath and Kavon Frazier both play safety.

New secondary coach Kris Richard likes bigger corners, and Jones is 6 foot, 205 pounds. The Cowboys still are trying to find out what Jones is, apparently deciding what he isn’t, making a decision on his fifth-year option an interesting one.

I think it’ll be a good move for me and the team, Jones said, via Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. It’s been something that as soon as [coach] Richard came in that’s what he was talking about. He wanted to move me to corner, so we had a discussion, and he made the move.

Based on the conversation, Shurmur said it is his understanding Beckham will be at the team facility April 9 for the start of Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey the offseason workout program and that he will be ready to return from a fractured left ankle sometime during training camp and definitely be ready for the season.

Limited Womens Ondrej Pavelec Jersey We just got a chance to get to know one another, Shurmur said. He’s a very charismatic guy, I think he really cares and I’m looking forward to working with him.

Gettleman shot down a report Beckham will not step foot on the field without a new contract and seemed to shoot down another report that the Rams are hot on the prowl for the wide receiver.

Lue continues to have Love trap pick-and-rolls 25-plus feet from the rim, even though doing so opens holes everywhere. The Cavs were so worried about Turner slipping behind Love, they parked a third guy at the foul line — Jordan Clarkson here, about 30 feet from his actual man — to help before the pick-and-roll really even got started:

[Irving] sent us a message before the game today, just telling us what to expect, said Shane Larkin, one of Boston’s ball handlers thrust into a larger role due to Irving’s season-ending knee surgery.

Celtics guard Marcus Smart is with the team for its playoff series against Milwaukee to honor the wishes of his mother, Camellia, who told her son last week she’s been diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. Smart said his mother told him to be with his squad.

We have a lot of guys in here that have never seen a playoff game, Larkin said. So he really gave some words of advice today and we all read it, made some comments back, and he just had an open conversation with us and he’s definitely helping off the court now that he can’t be out there with us fighting.

He’s definitely still locked in with us every single game.

Players on both teams wore extra layers, many with neck wraps or head shells. Fenway Park, usually packed with fans, was less than half-full in conditions that made it feel more like a New England Patriots home game in mid-December. The Red Sox posted an announcement offering free hot chocolate to fans from the middle of the fifth inning on.

Heath Hembree (2-0) worked two innings of scoreless relief. Craig Kimbrel got three outs for his fifth save.

Sale gave up one run and two hits in five innings, striking out eight and walking two. Orioles starter Dylan Bundy (0-2) allowed three runs — one earned — on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings with six strikeouts, two walks and two wild pitches.

After a recent rash of arrests for Jets players, the team’s owner said he is standing by the players.

Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson said Sunday he believes the team should support wide receiver Robby Anderson and linebacker Dylan Donahue, who were both recently arrested.

“I’m really disappointed, but I think these guys deserve the support of the team,” Johnson said at the NFL league meetings. “They deserve a second chance. We have a really good support system at the team. I think we can help these guys. My patience isn’t infinite. I expect these guys to straighten up and I’m going to talk to them about that.”

Anderson has been arrested twice in the last year. His latest arrest came in January when he was pulled over for speeding and arrested after he resisted arrest. The police report said he allegedly threatened to sexually assault the police officer’s wife.

Johnson was asked what he would tell a parent who purchased an Anderson No. 11 jersey for their child.

Johnson said he’s confident the Jets will do “something special” with the No. 3 pick.

“I’m hoping so,” he said when asked if this is seminal moment in franchise history. “We’ll know a little bit more as we get past the draft. I don’t think we’ll know for sure until we’ve had a few games under our belt, don’t you think? Speaking as a fan, which I am first, I think this is a really exciting time in the history of the Jets.”

“While I take full responsibility for this suspension, I want to clarify that my test showed traces of a banned stimulant from a pre-workout supplement bought over the counter,” Mauro said in a statement. “While I didn’t and would never intentionally put anything in my body that was a banned substance, I wholeheartedly honor and respect the NFL’s drug testing policy and I take full accountability. I want to thank the entire Giants organization for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to compete and help bring another championship to such a storied franchise. I look forward to overcoming this adversity I’ve ultimately brought upon myself and will do everything I can to contribute to this team winning football games.”

Mauro followed new Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher from the Cardinals. He is expected to compete for a starting job on the defensive line.

Browns not expected to pursue Dez Bryant Jersey

The Browns, fresh off signing Jarvis Landry to a mega-deal, are not expected to pursue three-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant, who was cut by the Cowboys on Saturday, multiple sources tell
Men's Nike Seattle Seahawks #38 Tre Madden Elite Green Rush Vapor Untouchable NFL Jersey
The Browns signed their own three-time Pro Bowler, Landry, to a five-year extension on Friday worth about $75.5 million, including total guarantees of about $47 million.

General manager Marty Hurney signed veteran Ross Cockrell to fill the void, but he’s an average performer. James Bradberry still needs a running mate.聽

Iowa’s Josh Jackson is an ideal system fit due Carmelo Anthony Jersey to his zone-coverage skills, route recognition and ball skills. The unanimous All-American’s eight interceptions and 26 defended passes led the FBS last season.

Jackson isn’t a true cover corner, but he’s an ideal defender for the Panthers’ zone-heavy scheme behind a talented front seven.聽

Patriots owner Robert Kraft said there is no problem with Brady’s current contract and that the team wasn’t focused on getting him a new, lucrative deal.

He’ll be 41 when the season starts, Kraft told the Athletic. Neither side has an issue with it. If it becomes an issue, we’ll deal with it.

Game Womens Nat Moore Jersey Brady has received five contract extensions during his 17-year tenure with the Patriots 鈥?four of which came when he had two years left on the current deal.

At the moment, Brady is coming off a two-year contract worth $41 million. He’s expected to make a $14 million base salary in 2018 and, if he chooses not to opt out in 2019, make $14 million that season.

Johnson, 27, has played 41 games with 24 starts.

The Steelers made him a fifth-round pick in 2014, but Pittsburgh waived him October 11 of his rookie season. The Jets claimed Johnson off waivers.

In our ongoing study of how to make the game better, we just seemed to see more lowering of the head, Cowboys executive Stephen Jones, who sits on the competition committee, said. Always we’re looking at ways to improve and make the game safer. And when you look at the plays where the players are dropping their head, we’re doing a good job of catching it after the fact with fines and things of that nature, but probably can do a better job of making the call on the field that hopefully we’ll even emphasize more. Darryl Morris Womens Jersey Heads-up football.

Prescott said he had heard the speculation that Bryant could be released throughout the offseason, but I can’t say that I actually thought that it would fully happen.

The Cowboys made a serious run at signing Sammy Watkins at the opening of free agency, which would have ended Bryant’s tenure with the team in mid-March. Eventually, they signed Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson. They have visited with and worked out almost all of the top receivers in the draft, including Calvin Ridley, D.J. Moore, Courtland Sutton and James Washington.

Bryant’s production decreased since he signed a five-year, $70 million contract in 2015. He battled through foot and knee injuries and was hurt by ineffective quarterback play in 2015 after Tony Romo was hurt. Prescott and Bryant finished strong to close the 2016 season (six of Bryant’s eight touchdowns came in the second half of the season), but they never got on the same page in 2017.
