Police bodycam footage shows Lenny Dykstra, Uber driver both feared for their lives

Linden police body camera footage of the night former major league baseball player Lenny Dykstra was arrested following an altercation an Uber driver shows both men telling officers they were were scared of the other.

No ‘knock on wood,’ Luck said. I’m going to be there. I’ll be playing. I believe it in my bones.

A few minutes later, Reich was talking about his quarterback’s mental strength. And I don’t think he was lying when he said:

One of the things I’ve learned about Andrew in a short time, Reich said, and I really appreciate this about him: He’s very methodical, very disciplined, and doesn’t waver. … What I like is, Andrew sees himself being better than he ever has been. That’s what we all see. And so we have a plan to make that happen. And he’s driving the ship, as he should be. There’s nobody else who can drive that ship.

And one of them has a new contract to go with that status.

According to a tweet from his agents, second-round pick Nick Chubb has signed his rookie deal with the Browns.

Chubb, the Georgia running back who helped his team to the national title game, was the 35th overall pick. He’s also part of a deep backfield, which also includes veteran free agent Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson.

The Browns haven’t signed first-rounders Baker Mayfield or Denzel Ward yet, but that shouldn’t be complicated, because none of them are.

Wynn has the talent to be one of the Patriots’ starting five offensive linemen, but the role that he plays will likely hinge on the strength of who else they have as options at tackle. At the moment, those bodies are Marcus Cannon, who ended the season on injured reserve in 2017, and Trent Brown, who was traded from San Francisco during the draft. Either way, expect Wynn to start sooner rather than later, be it at left tackle or guard.

As for what’s next for the Senior Bowl, Savage did have a little advice for Nagy. I would say just be nimble, and know that there’s always another player out there,Savage said. You’re gonna get turned down some. And the door has been shut on us plenty. But in a lot of those cases, a door opens for another player, and he winds up being a better pro.Finding those guys is why this one has been so valuable to so many scouts over the last six years.

What does Rom-stradamus have cooked for an encore? As is the case with what’s to come with all the guys on this list, I can’t wait to find out.

How guys like Dan Orlovsky, Andrew Hawkins and D.J. Shockley are fighting their way from the bench to the booth. FIRST-AND-10 1. Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has impressed his coaches early鈥攃oming as advertised with his ability to digest and apply the information he’s being given on the practice field. And he looks comfortable and poised in his surroundings as an NFL player. Sam Bradford’s looked good early on too, so summer should be interesting in the desert.

If you’re looking for an area where the reigning champions could be better than they were in 2017, the secondary is one. Second-year CB Sidney Jones has turned heads early on in OTAs, showing the ability that had him pegged as a top-20 pick prior to tearing his Achilles ahead of the 2017 draft. And young journeyman De’Vante Bausby’s been a bit of a revelation at corner too, making for good competition at that spot ahead of training camp.

Civil rights activists protest outside league office on Friday

Two days after the NFL changed its controversial anthem policy to require any player inclined to protest to retreat to the locker room, a group called the National Action Network gathered outside 345 Park Avenue to criticize the NFL’s decision.

He holds you accountable, Benjamin said. I think they’re giving the young guys a little bit more leeway. But us three, I think we really have to focus on it a little bit more and just knowing our position and even knowing other people’s positions.

As he closes in on that target (a freestyle rap posted last year updated 15 to 17), he has a new song. Called Target, which has debuted just in time for the Memorial Day holiday.

Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has transcribed some of the lyrics, which seem to contain a message for the Steelers: So they put me on the tag, alright. Definitely not going to trip like I that bad guy. Wonder why they treat me like the bad guy. You say I ain’t the best, but that’s a bad lie. I’m a do what I want just leave me alone. If I don’t do what you want then you want me gone. I’m a say you being real aggressive, the way you switch up on me real impressive.

The Steelers have opted twice to keep Bell from becoming an unrestricted free agent by applying the franchise tag. Bell responded last year by exercising his right to remain away from the team until Labor Day, at which time he showed up and got his full $12.1 million salary. But he has been criticized for not being in football shape, and pressure continues to be applied to get him to show up for offseason and preseason work.

You think if I sit out, I’ll be sluggish, Bell says in the new song. You think they won’t pay me because of drug tests. For a fact, I ain’t never failed one, that’s on me. You so worried about the weed, what about them PEDs?



Ex-tackle Mike Adams loses 68 pounds, hopes to return to NFL at tight end

Mike Adams was a talented enough offensive tackle that the Steelers took him with a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft, and he started six games as a rookie. But his career stalled both in Pittsburgh and then in Chicago, and he was out of football last year.

Diet is key for the weight loss mixed with good ol hard work in the weight room and yoga studio to get cut up, Adams said.

Making it at a new position after a year Authentic Jordan Crawford Jersey out of football is a tall order, but he’s eager to show some team what the slimmed-down version of Mike Adams can do.

Bill Self lost his entire backcourt after Malik Newman and Lagerald Vick both decided to turn pro. That’s after seniors Devonte’ Graham and Svi Mykhailiuk both departed.

A quick examination would suggest a demotion from the No. 1 slot. Let’s see what Udoka Azubuike decides to do before making that determination. Azubuike will enter the draft but will not sign with an agent, allowing for the possibility that the most important and efficient player on the roster last season will be back. Add five-star studs Devon Dotson and Quentin Grimes, along with Cal transfer Charlie Moore (12.2 PPG, 1.1 SPG in 2016-17), and you have one of the top backcourts in the country.

Fortunately, his teammate Davante Adams said shortly afterward that Matthews was OK.

I wanted to let everybody know Clay is all right, Adams said. He’s got a little boo-boo on his nose, but he’ll be all right. He’s a tough guy.

NFL teams are always concerned any time a player does anything off the field that could result in injury, but a charity softball game is usually a low-impact sporting event. Matthews was unlucky to get hit in the face, but lucky not to have anything more than a little boo-boo.

So hockey is a more-than-adequate replacement for football. And with the ongoing Stanley Cup Final hopefully in the early stages of a potential seven-game classic (the series is tied at one), I strongly encourage you to tune in to NBCSN on Saturday night for Game Three, as the Washington Capitals host the Vegas Golden Knights.

The regular season doesn’t start for another 15 weeks, yet plenty can and will happen between now and then to distract teams. The goal is to avoid those scenarios.

While the financial details were not disclosed, ESPN reported the deal is worth $150 million, making Ryan the first quarterback to earn $30 million per year with $100 million guaranteed.

Matt Light on Nate Solder: You don’t replace a guy like that overnight

The Patriots announced on Wednesday that Matt Light will be the next former player inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame and the 11-year starter at left tackle is a worthy addition to that group.
Adidas NHL Youth Craig Hartsburg Camo Authentic Jersey - #4 Dallas Stars Veterans Day Practice
Another player who could be up for induction one day is the guy who replaced Light at left tackle in 2012. Nate Solder was an obvious choice to replace Light back then, but the team doesn’t have the same kind of sure Womens Steve Atwater Jersey thing in place now that Solder has moved on to the Giants as a free agent.

While speaking to the media on Wednesday, Light said that Solder is not someone you can just replace.

Light and Solder each missed big chunks of seasons with injuries, but it has been a largely steady two decades at a key position thanks to their presence. Be it first-round pick Isaiah Wynn or someone else, the Patriots would love to find a successor who could extend that to 2018 and beyond.

The Personal Conduct Policy expressly encompasses [c]rimes of dishonesty such as blackmail, extortion, fraud, money laundering, or racketeering. The NFL, by referring to the situation as a civil matter in its comment on the Manning situation, apparently has concluded that, without a prosecution, there can be no crime of fraud 鈥?even if actual fraud has occurred.

Of course, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott wasn’t prosecuted, charged, or even sued in civil court. But he was suspended six games for violating the Personal Conduct Policy.

As explained last month, there’s a fine line (and maybe no line) between civil and criminal fraud. If the NFL wanted to use the allegations of memorabilia fraud, the evidence generated during the trial, the fact that Eli Manning settled the lawsuit in lieu of testifying in open court about the situation (including but not limited to answering aggressive questions about an email message in which he asked for 2 helmets that can pass as game used) as the basis for an investigation, it easily could have. Arguably, given the extent to which the Personal Conduct Policy and other league policies premised on the integrity of and public confidence in the professional football are applied to other players, the NFL should have.

Doug Pederson downplays Michael Bennett’s absence from OTAs

Coaches can’t say much when it comes to players skipping offseason workouts. And so they usually don’t. On Tuesday, Eagles coach Doug Pederson didn’t say much about veteran defensive lineman Michael Bennett missing the first day of OTAs, as Bennett makes his adjustment to a new franchise.
Reebok NHL Men's Joe Thornton Black Ice Premier Jersey - #19 San Jose Sharks
I really don’t have any concern going forward with him acclimating himself to the defense, Pederson told reporters. You’ve been around long enough to understand Jim [Schwartz’s] style and what we teach, and it fits his strength, and that’s roll off the ball as a D-lineman. So it’s just a matter of getting him in here and getting around his teammates.

But the thing is he’s not. Pederson was asked whether it relates in any way to the pending assault charge against him.

The nice thing about being young, having no burden of expectations and not really caring Marc-Andre Fleury Authentic Jersey about right now is having about a million different places for success to bloom. None of these three teams has needs so defined or immediate as to be limiting; if three players break out and they’re all second basemen, hey, whatever, there’s time to figure out the playing time later. Heck, success might be another team’s left fielder getting hurt, forcing it to overpay in trade for yours.

We started this fight back in 2012 and are grateful that the Supreme Court has recognized that we’ve been right all along.

Monday’s Supreme Court decision 聽put an end to the legal Womens Edgar Martinez Jersey wrangling.

Victor Cruz hoping for NFL return, willing to move on if no interest in 2018

Former New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz continues to train with the hope of keeping his playing career alive. He has set an undisclosed date later this year for when if he remains unsigned he will retire.

Cruz was cut last summer by the Chicago Bears and did not play in 2017. He said there was some interest from teams before the NFL draft but nothing serious during OTAs or since.

Last week, The New York Times reported cheerleaders for the Washington NFL team were required to pose topless at a calendar shoot in Johnny Manziel Youth jersey 2013 while men invited by the team watched.

Now I’m not a scientist, but that sounds like sexual harassment, Australian comedian Jim Jefferies said on his Comedy Central show. Wow, and I remember when the Washington Redskins were just the team with the racist logo. And don’t tell me it isn’t. Native Americans were the victims of genocide. It’d be like me supporting a rugby team called the Sydney Aboriginals.

The Colts are set to sign veteran tackle Austin Howard, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported, via a source informed of the situation.
Authentic Womens Jerick McKinnon Jersey
Baltimore declined Howard’s 2018 option after the 31-year-old started all 16 games at right tackle last season. Undrafted out of Northern Iowa in 2010, Howard has started 87 games for the Jets, Raiders and Ravens over the past six years.

Howard joins first-round pick Quenton Nelson, second-round pick Braden Smith and free-agent acquisition Matt Slauson as new blood on Indianapolis’ blocking unit.

This is perhaps the most proactive approach the Colts have taken toward their beleaguered offensive line since Andrew Luck entered the league in 2012. After years of watching Luck being treated like a pi帽ata in the pocket, Ballard saw Jacoby Brissett lead the NFL with 52 sacks absorbed last season.

Authentic Womens Michael Strahan Jersey It remains to be seen if veteran fliers such as Howard, Slauson and Jack Mewhort can hold off the youth brigade up front. At the very least, Ballard has assembled the deepest O-line of the Luck era.
