Namath said he watched Mayfield plenty in college and was especially impressed with the Oklahoma quarterback’s play in a College Football Playoff loss to Georgia.

Hey, it wasn’t just Georgia, it was a couple of years, early on, when I saw him play, said Namath, tracing his affinity for Mayfield. I saw him a couple of years back. I never saw him look bad. I don’t know how tall he is. I still don’t know big he is. Size can be a major asset, yes, size can be an asset in today’s game. But Drew Brees, his size was questioned many times and he’s one of the greatest players Jake Muzzin Womens Jersey who’s ever played.

I’m not as big on the outward swagger, so to speak, but the confidence, the leadership qualities… and that damn confidence, man. Don’t tell me I can’t do it, I’m gonna get it done, Namath said.

We’ll choose to ignore the fact that the man famous for wearing fur coats and who guaranteed New York’s Super Bowl victory says he’s not big on outward swagger.

If the Jets land Mayfield as their quarterback of the future there will be obstacles to overcome, but at least he’s got approval from Gang Green’s last great quarterback.

There have already been some serious questions about how he’ll do at the NFL level due to his lack of production in college 鈥?he had just 14.5 sacks in 35 games. For this reason alone, we identified Sweat as one of the riskiest prospects this year. However, new information has now come out that could potentially cause Sweat to drop in the draft. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Sweat had surgery on his ACL, MCL and PCL in college, and some NFL clubs have moved Sweat down their draft boards or in the case for some teams completely off the board.



Josh Allen: That is not me. I apologize for what I did

The Josh Allen image reclamation tour is in full gear, hours before the start of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Premier Reebok Men's Ben Bishop Royal Blue Third Jersey - NHL #30 Tampa Bay Lightning 2015 Stanley Cup
After tweets from his account when he was in high school emerged late last night, Allen’s trying to convince the teams he’s hoping will draft him that he’s not the same person that sent the messages with racially insensitive language.

Seahawks (from Saints via Packers) 鈥斅燫ashaad Penny, RB, San Diego State:聽A man among boys in the Mountain West, he led the country by running for 2,248 yards in 2017 and scored 23 TDs on the ground.

Celtics’ Marcus Smart back in action, comes off bench in Game 5

Celtics guard Marcus Smart returned to action in Game 5 of Boston’s first-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Smart felt fine after engaging in some contact work following Tuesday morning’s shootaround. Smart came off the bench and saw his first action with 4:08 left in the first quarter.

“Those three shifts, they score,” said Kuznetsov, whose goal was the second-fastest in Capitals playoff history. “I feel like they got momentum, and then they score again and again.”

As even as the play was, a handful of mistakes were enough to put the Penguins up going into Game 2 Sunday afternoon. Sullivan already sees opportunities to cut down on chances against, and his players think they can be better as the series goes on.

“It’s one game, we did some good things,” Crosby said. “I think in any playoff series, it’s just about getting better with every game.”

The Capitals have killed 18 consecutive penalties dating to Game 2 against Columbus. .., Malkin skated Thursday morning with teammates, while Hagelin did not make the trip. Malkin could be an option for Game 2 if his apparent leg injury has healed enough.

“I thought he wanted to cuddle. I just wanted to get close to him,” said Marchand, who wasn’t penalized on the play. “He keeps trying to get close to me. I don’t know if he’s got a thing for me or what. He’s cute.”

The NHL felt Marchand’s actions were a little less cute. A league spokesperson confirmed a report by Sportsnet that the NHL demanded Marchand not repeat that particular antic again. A message was communicated to Marchand through the series’ supervisor of officials Mick McGeough.

Marchand has three goals and six assists in seven games for the Bruins, who begin their second-round series at the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.

The surge Ingles kept going finally culminated in another dunk by Gobert that punctuated the decisive 20-3 run that gave Utah a 67-52 lead.

“The whole year, one of the things that we’ve wanted to do collectively is try to generate open shots,” Snyder said. “You’re not always going to make them, but you want to keep taking them. Eventually, you’re going to make some. We hit some timely ones in the second half.”steelers_058



Why you should expect more NFL games in London

Sean Davis Mens Jersey In 2007, the NFL played its first regular-season game in London. We all blinked, and 10 years later the league will stage four games there — the equivalent of half of one regular-season home schedule — as part of its five-game International Series schedule.
Men's Authentic Majestic Joey Gallo Royal Blue Alternate Jersey - #13 MLB Texas Rangers Flex Base
Two sources said Witten’s plans won’t be final until he receives Jones’ blessing, and one source allowed that Witten could always have a last-minute change of heart.

A team source said the Cowboys were aware of the possibility, but Witten was not making a final decision until he met with Jones.

The pending retirement of longtime tight end Jason Witten almost assures the Cowboys will look for his replacement on day 2 of the draft.

Nevertheless, the consensus is that Witten’s impressive football career is coming to an end.

Witten was not available for immediate comment. ESPN declined comment and has had no announcement to reveal its new Monday Night Football broadcast team.

Witten would leave the Cowboys as the franchise leader in games played (239), receptions (1,152) and receiving yards (12,448). He is third in receiving touchdowns (68) and is tied with Hall of Famer Bob Lilly for the franchise mark with 11 Pro Bowl selections.

Taggart said the team is handling the situation internally but made it clear he once again had to spell out his expectations for Francois. DeAndre Hopkins Womens Jersey Deondre knows he needs to be better at decision-making, and he knows he has to do a great job of who he’s around and what he’s around, Taggart said.

The day before the latest incident, Francois sat down with ESPN for a 30-minute interview in which he discussed his leadership, Taggart’s emphasis on accountability and his rehab from a left knee injury suffered in September. Reiterating what Taggart has continually said, Francois said he learned from the domestic dispute: I learned that I need to watch my back and pick my crowd wisely, and that’s the same thing Coach Taggart was telling me — pick the people you choose to hang around and make sure they’re the right people. That’s about all I learned from that situation.

As for becoming a better leader, Francois said, I don’t feel like I have to be more of a leader. I feel like I have to continue to be myself because everybody leads in different ways. With the leadership attributes I have, I feel I can lead in different ways. I lead from inside our team. Everybody on our team understands where I come from, and I feel I can relate to every player.

David Akers trolls Cowboys fans with epic NFL Draft speech

With commissioner Roger Goodell ceding the stage to various NFL alumni for the announcement of picks on day two of the draft, former players from a number of teams took the opportunity to take shots at the Cowboys in their home stadium.

And nobody relished that chance more than former Eagles kicker David Akers.

Announcing the Eagles’ selection with the 49th overall pick, Akers taunted Dallas over division rival Philadelphia’s recent victory in Super Bowl 52 in an epic speech.

Authentic Womens Carlton Fisk Jersey If you blinked, you might have missed the Rockets’ 11-0 run to open the half. Harden and Paul combined to score every point, taking turns dancing Joe Thornton Womens Jersey off the dribble, as they did so many times this season, when Houston was 44-5 when both of them played.

It didn’t get much better for Minnesota the rest of the quarter. The Rockets were 14-of-23 from the floor, 9-of-13 from 3-point range and 13-of-13 from the line as they came within a point of matching the 1962 Los Angeles Lakers’ playoff record for points in a quarter.

We can be that team, said sixth man Eric Gordon, who had eight points in the quarter, including a 3 at the buzzer. We just hadn’t gotten into a flow throughout this whole series. It was good to see that.

It’s a frightening sight for any team in the Rockets’ path.

When the Bucks surround Antetokounpo with shooters, they have been nigh unstoppable offensively in the series. Meanwhile, his length and rebounding, along with his ability to defend opposing center Al Horford, also have been key for the Bucks’ defense.

There’s a strong argument that Holiday has been as impressive as teammate Anthony Davis, perhaps even more so. He is the engine of the Pelicans’ offense, mixing great decision-making with an aggressive scoring style that pushes the whole unit forward.

He is also a scrappy defender, and when he was defending Damian Lillard he did as much as anyone to slow down the Trail Blazers’ most important line of attack.

Simmons stepped up in a major way down the stretch of the regular season with Joel Embiid injured. He continued to lead the 76ers in the early part of the playoffs before Embiid’s return.

Health. The Penguins were nicked up a bit in Round 1. They missed Patric Hornqvist and, later, Evgeni Malkin. Yet surprisingly, especially during Malkin’s absence in Game 6, they did not miss a beat. We’ll see if there are any lingering effects from those injuries. Burakovsky underwent minor surgery for an upper-body injury and could be back later in the playoffs, though probably not to start this round. Advantage: Capitals.



Alabama heading for a 10th straight draft with a first-round pick

On Thursday night, Alabama has four players who are likely to go in the first round of the NFL draft: safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, wide receiver Calvin Ridley, linebacker Rashaan Evans and defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne. When Roger Goodell calls one of those names, it will mark 10 straight years with an Alabama player in the first round.
Men's Columbus Blue Jackets #38 Boone Jenner Authentic Navy Blue Home Fanatics Branded Breakaway NHL Jersey
That’s a rare thing: Alabama currently has nine straight drafts with a first-round pick, tying it with Florida from 1983 to 1991 for the second-most consecutive drafts for a school to have a player chosen in Barry Bonds Jersey the first round.

If the GM believes that strongly in the player, it should make you feel good as a Giants fan. But it should make you feel good as a Jets fan, too, because the team’s mission from the start of this draft season was to position itself for a quarterback. It is impossible to believe they thought they would have any shot at Darnold three months ago. But they have him now.

Limited Womens Jay Ajayi Jersey And good for those of us who spent the past football season starving for relevance, football famished, desperate for something to talk about while the city’s two teams combined to lose 24-of-32 games, stripping all the joy out of Sundays week after week after week.

I’d say [they’re] mostly wildly untrue, Robinson said, via Jason Wolf of the Tennesseean. You just try to sort through it and you try to connect as many dots as possible, knowing once the commissioner puts the teams on the clock and the draft gets going, all bets are kind of off.

Hearing this has shaken my foundation of trust in people’s inherent good nature, and is enough to make you wonder if anything is true at all.

Either that, or the draft rumors are reacting as a gas does, which is to fill the space available. With most boards set over a week ago, there’s little left for teams to do but wait and lie, and it seems that’s what many of them are doing.

Another note asked the woman, Do you think of me as: 1) your grandfather; 2) your second father; 3) your second husband; 4) your friend; 5) your boyfriend; 6) or something else 鈥?and it concludes:

I didn’t know what to do when you started leaving me suggestive handwritten notes, insisting that I reply and then destroy the note, she said, regarding Richardson.

Connor Hellebuyck bounced back in a big way, just as the Winnipeg Jets were expecting.

The 24-year-old goalie turned aside every shot Minnesota could muster, shoving the Wild to the brink of elimination.

Mark Scheifele scored both goals for Winnipeg and Hellebuyck made 30 saves for his seventh shutout this season, as the Jets beat the Wild 2-0 on Tuesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the first-round playoff series.

You knew, five to 10 minutes into that game, he was right and feeling good, Jets coach Paul Maurice said.

Across the hall, Morrissey adamantly defended his action as accidental.

He’s a big guy, and my stick ended up getting up a little bit on him, Morrissey said. I would never try to do that to anybody. I’m not a dirty player.

Morrissey apologized to Staal later in the game, but that wasn’t any consolation for him or the Wild.

I’m the tallest guy on the ice. He cross-checked me in the neck. There’s not much more you can say. Everyone saw it. I don’t know how no one with stripes saw it, Staal said.

DeRozan, whose 37th point came on a friendly roll on a fourth quarter free throw, equalled his total from Game 3 of the second round against Cleveland last year. It was his 12th career 30-point game in the postseason. The Raptors are 9-3 in those games.

I though DeMar was super on the offensive end, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. We needed every point. He did an excellent job of reading what the defense was doing to him and making them pay.

Lowry called DeRozan an MVP-type caliber player.

DeRozan missed his first two shots but connected on 14 of his final 21 attempts, including three of six from long range. He also converted a four-point play.

When he’s making 3’s, he’s very tough to guard, Washington’s John Wall said of DeRozan.

Toronto, which made a team playoff record 16 3-pointers Saturday, connected on 13 of 35 from long range in Game 2, making only two in the second half.

Wall scored 29 points, Mike Scott had a career playoff-high 20 and Ty Lawson 14 for the Wizards, who host Game 3 on Friday night.seahawks_160



Raiders working out Lamarr Houston today

Elite Ricardo Allen Jersey The Raiders are fully committed to their past, beyond bringing their old coach back this offseason.
Youth Nick Young Swingman Black Nike Jersey: NBA Golden State Warriors #6 Alternate Statement Edition
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Raiders are working out veteran outside linebacker Lamarr Houston today.

During this past season, we received assurances from both Commissioner Roger Goodell and the Chairman of the Management Council, John Mara, that the right of players to demonstrate would be protected, the union said in a statement issued last month, after Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said that he would prohibit kneeling (and then backtracked). We are glad that both the Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins have clarified their positions to be consistent with what was confirmed with our union leadership, and we expect all other NFL teams to maintain the same commitment to protecting those rights. (The NFL has at no time disputed the notion that Goodell and Mara provided assurances that the right of players to demonstrate would be protected.)

This is the most important point to keep in mind when addressing whether the NFL may make hiring and firing decisions based on a player’s inclination to participate in anthem protests: The NFL created the right to protest in 2009, the NFL confirmed the right to protest in 2016 and the NFL reiterated the right to protest in 2017.

Elite Tiger Williams Jersey He also hinted at months of reports of friction in the Patriots organization, doing nothing to refute the idea that the tension between Brady and coach Bill Belichick (perhaps stemming from his work with trainer Alex Guerrero) is real.

I mean, it’s an 18-year marriage, and it’s been an incredibly Womens Trent Taylor Jersey successful run, Chopra said. But there’s a lot of intensity and a lot of pressure, and a lot of big personalities. And Tom is one of them. That hasn’t been easy, and I find it interesting that by the end of the season, that all kind of faded away, because when you get to the end of the season, no matter what is going on, everyone sort of gets on the same page and focuses. . . .

Again, they had another incredible run. And that’s what [Brady] says at the end is like, this is a very different offseason for him. It’s the fact that he’s got three growing kids, a wife who’s like, ‘You know, I’ve kind of been putting stuff on hold for a while, and I wanna go out and do my thing now too.’ And so Tom’s juggling a lot of things, and I think that’s basically what he says at the end: ‘I gotta recalibrate. I have to find that conviction again’.



Dolphins meeting with Dallas Goedert, Hayden Hurst

The Dolphins cut Julius Thomas and Anthony Fasano is a free agent, which means Miami is without two players who saw 1,138 offensive snaps between them during the 2017 season.
Men's Nike Los Angeles Chargers #23 Dexter McCoil Elite Green Salute to Service NFL Jersey
Game Kids Brian Propp Jersey That’s led many to predict that the Dolphins will be taking a tight end in the early part of the draft later this month. Two of the players who could be possibilities are visiting with the team on Wednesday.

Cano moved into second place on the career home run list for players that primarily played second base. Cano’s 302nd home run passed Rogers Hornsby. Cano trails only Jeff Kent, who had 377 career homers.

You always dream that you’ll come up and be able to do something special in the game. It would have been great if we ended up winning, he said.

Jose Altuve played in the 1,000th game of his career and went 1 for 5. He has the second-most hits for a foreign-born player in their first 1,000 games, trailing only Seattle’s Ichiro Suzuki. Altuve has 1,272 hits. Suzuki had 1,414 in his first 1,000 games.

Allen injured his right shoulder two weeks earlier against Air Force and missed the game against San Jose State while the Seahawks were in town to play the San Francisco 49ers.

It’s also worthwhile to have as much information available on possible prospects in case they hit the free agent market in coming seasons or when your team has to play them during the year. If Allen somehow ended up with the Arizona Cardinals, for instance, it would behoove Seattle to have as much background as possible on a divisional rival.

Wilson is Seattle’s quarterback for 2018. No discussion whatsoever. His contract only runs through 2019 and negotiations for a new deal could become contentious, though they could always use the franchise tag, if necessary. However, the Seahawks likely won’t have the opportunity to select Allen even if they wanted to. They currently hold the 18th pick in the draft and don’t have second or third round picks to use to trade Curtis Lazar Jersey up. Unless an Aaron Rodgers situation occurs where Allen unexpectedly falls to the latter stages of the first round, Seattle won’t have the chance to select Allen anyway.

Tarik Cohen: I don’t feel like I’ve done anything yet

Karlos Dansby Kids Jersey
There weren’t many bright spots for the Bears during the 2017 season, but running back Tarik Cohen’s play was among them.
Adidas NHL Men's Haydn Fleury Black Authentic Jersey - #4 Carolina Hurricanes 1917-2017 100th Anniversary
Cohen became the first rookie in more than 50 years to score touchdowns as a runner, receiver, passer and punt returner and showed a versatility that has left many excited about the prospect of seeing Cohen in new head coach Matt Nagy’s offense this Denis Malgin Authentic Jersey year.

Cohen is in that group, but he’s not getting ahead of himself thanks to the mix of last year’s results and this year’s expectations.

Nationals: LHP Gio Gonzalez (1-1, 2.20 ERA) is 10-1 with a 1.69 ERA in 15 career starts at Citi Field.

Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler (1-0, 1.29) pitched seven sharp innings at Miami in his season debut, retiring the last 16 batters he faced. He is 2-7 lifetime vs. Washington — tagged by the Nats in his final two starts in spring training, he got sent to the minors to begin the season.

Limited Youth Chris Jones Jersey All season long, I didn’t know any records about expansion teams, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said. We just do what a regular team would, we just play the game and try to win. That’s it.

Brayden McNabb scored against his former team in the second period and Fleury stopped 31 shots as the Knights finished off their fourth one-goal victory of the series. It was the goalie’s second shutout of the playoffs.

I didn’t picture this happening, me scoring a goal against the Kings, McNabb said, but it feels real good to get this win and finish this series.

The Knights poured into the net to hug Fleury at the final horn. Vegas fans in the crowd chanted the goalie’s name in celebration.

We knew we were getting a superstar when we got him, Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. He has playoff experience and he’s been a part of three Cups and he makes us better. LA put on the pressure on him but he was huge for us.
