Carson Wentz will continue to adjust to his new corps.


The NFL preseason officially kicked off last week when the Cowboys and Cardinals traveled to Canton, Ohio, for the Hall of Fame Game. Now, the rest of the league will get their opportunity to earn extra reps and pray for the mercy of the injury gods when the first week of the preseason ramps up Thursday night.

Some franchises aren’t even tempting fate. Former MVP Cam Newton didn’t play Wednesday night against the Texans, and Aaron Rodgers — and his top wideout, Jordy Nelson — aren’t expected to play Thursday night against the Eagles.

That could be a boon for Green Bay. Brett Hundley, Rodgers’ backup, has developed into one of the league’s most intriguing second-stringers. Some extra reps this preseason would not only give him extra prep in case of a Rodgers injury, but also boost his trade value. In a league where Mike Glennon can sign a $45 million contract after throwing 11 passes in two years, a talented young quarterback like Hundley could bring a big return as the season approaches.

While Tyrod Taylor will be without his new top wideout, Carson Wentz will continue to adjust to his new corps. Philadelphia added Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith this offseason, and their presence, combined with a resurgent preseason from former first-round pick Nelson Agholor, gave the Cheap NFL Jerseys USA Eagles the depth to ship Matthews north without a second thought.

The final game of the night, and the only one to earn a national broadcast slot, will pit Jameis Winston against Blake Bortles in a battle of two highly touted draft picks heading in two very different directions. Winston spent 2016 leading Tampa Bay to the brink of the postseason. Bortles threw pick-sixes for a three-win team. While Winston’s spot in his lineup is secure, 2017 Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys may be Bortles’ last opportunity to prove he can be a successful NFL starter.

The 7 best fights from NFL training camps


All 32 teams are now into the padded practice portion of camp, i.e. they have the pads on and they hitting each other. That means the intensity level at NFL training camps has officially been dialed up. It also meant fights!

I love sushi. I’d put it in my top three favorite foods. And while I haven’t been to Ajian, my friend and former colleague Marq Burnett of SEC Country has. Burnett said it’s actually good. The ingredients are fresh, and even though he had a roll that combined strawberries and raw tuna, he liked it. Still, there’s no way in hell I’m going to a sushi place that serves a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos roll.

As a matter of fact, I can think of a few superior restaurant concepts NFL players could pull off.

He may be the best college kicker of all time, but Aguayo hasn’t shown much in the NFL. He led the league in missed field goals during his rookie season and didn’t seem to be over his problems Friday night. In the Buccaneers’ preseason debut, the former second-round pick missed an extra point and a 47-yard field goal attempt.

Aguayo is competing with Nick Folk for the Buccaneers’ kicking job and wasn’t helped by the fact that Folk nailed a 45-yard field goal Friday. There’s a very real chance that he Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal could get cut by Tampa Bay before the regular season begins.

Butler’s ascension hasn’t been all sunshine, however. He’ll have to find a way to correct the mistakes of 2016, including at the Super Bowl, where he’d earned fame years prior. Until the Patriots made their historic comeback to topple the Falcons, two images were set to define an Atlanta win — Tom Brady sprawled on the turf after a pick-six, and Butler getting flipped to the ground by Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys Taylor Gabriel’s double-move downfield.

Best and worst moments from Saturday’s 9 NFL preseason games


Saturday we had a full slate of preseason NFL games. A total of nine games were played, and there was plenty of action to take in throughout the evening.

The Panthers and Titans played the lone afternoon game and gave us lots of scoring to kick off the day. The 34-27 win for the Titans was highlighted by a pair of former college standouts — Derrick Henry and Christian McCaffrey.

But there’s also that whole Cheeto thing. And strawberries. And a topping called bagel spice. I don’t even know what bagel spice is, but I feel confident that it probably doesn’t belong on sushi.

To prove he’s worth a first-round pick, Watt will have to actually beat opposing offensive linemen. But for now, he looked big, fast, strong and smart. That’s a good start.

After about six minutes of the first quarter of Pittsburgh’s first preseason game, first-round pick T.J. Watt already had two sacks. Neither was particularly impressive, but Watt was there, made the plays, and was a force on defense for most of the first half against the Giants.

The first sack came when the rest of the Steelers’ defensive line forced Josh Johnson to run out of the pocket straight into the arms of Watt. The second came unblocked Cheap NFL Jerseys China when he burst into the backfield and didn’t fall for a play fake.

While some passers sit, others will be waging another round in a fight Cheap Custom NFL Jerseys for a starting role. The Broncos and Bears will meet with their passer situations in flux; Trevor Siemian and the aforementioned Glennon are the penciled-in starters, but two first-round draft picks, Paxton Lynch and Mitchell Trubisky, respectively, will push them.

Jones said that the league does not condone domestic violence.


Last week, there was a report that the Jaguars were among the teams that showed interest in trading for Cincinnati Bengals backup AJ McCarron. The price tag, according to the rumor, was a second-round pick.

McCarron, 26, has appeared in just eight NFL games in three seasons with six touchdowns and two interceptions. His only significant time came in 2015 when he replaced an injured Andy Dalton as a starter for three games.

As you well know, because of his style and personality, it’s like a rock star wherever he goes in terms of attention, Jones told reporters. Anybody that’s experienced that knows that takes getting used to. You have to learn many aspects of that. Certainly Zeke is evolving and being subject to needing to learn how to deal with the media and social media the way it is today.

Jones was also frustrated with the pace of the investigation, and he spoke to the NFL’s special counsel Lisa Friel, who oversees such investigations.

Despite his concern about the length of the probe, Jones said that the league does not condone domestic violence.

Make no mistake about it, the NFL does not want to — I guess I have to do my disclaimer, but obviously we’re not for bullying and we’re certainly, certainly, certainly not for the issue of domestic violence,

Thursday night’s slate of games pairs some promising young quarterbacks against a handful of unsettled situations. Jay Cutler will make his Miami Dolphins debut less than two Cheap Custom Jerseys weeks after signing with the club to replace an injured Ryan Tannehill. He’ll take on a Ravens team Cheap NFL Jerseys likely to be without Joe Flacco (back stiffness) and instead turning to Ryan Mallett and Thad Lewis.

Brandon Manning, Oilers’ public enemy No. 1, manhandled by Patrick Maroon

Brandon Manning returned to the scene of the crime Thursday with a price on his head.

The Flyers defenseman, playing in Edmonton for the Cheap Dodgers Jerseys first time since taking the fall for derailing Connor McDavid’s rookie season, was reminded early and often he’s not well-liked by Oilers faithful with a round of boos each time he took a shift. McDavid’s teammates sure didn’t forget, either, and took a few runs at Manning for good measure in a 6-3 win.

Kris underwent an MRI in February that revealed a herniated disc in his neck, general manager Jim Rutherford said, via the team’s website. Our neurosurgeons examined him and recommended conservative treatment in an attempt to correct the condition without surgery.

Kris had been making progress and was hopeful of returning for the playoffs until about a week ago, when the progress plateaued. He underwent another MRI, and, at that point it was determined that surgery was needed.

Letang, who hasn’t played since Feb. 21, has five goals and 29 assists for 34 points in 41 games this season.

The Penguins are on a three-game winning streak and sit five points behind the rival Capitals in the second spot in the Metropolitan Division.

In the NHL, production speaks the loudest at the negotiating table. Draisaitl is coming off a career year, establishing new highs in goals (29), assists (48) and points (77). He’s likely entering his prime, so Edmonton is buying perhaps the best years of his career, and has locked him up through his age 29 season. And given the chemistry Draisaitl has established with McDavid, keeping the Cheap Eagles Jerseys Robin to Edmonton’s Batman was not an if but a when.

Penguins mascot marches with real penguins before NHL Stadium Series game

Fans watching Saturday’s NHL Stadium Series game at Heinz Field didn’t expect Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal to see real penguins.

Before the Penguins took on the rival Flyers in the outdoor interstate showdown, though, seven penguins from the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium waddled across the ice.

If Crosby’s 102-point rookie season was any indication, he was on his way to big things. Still just 19 years old in his sophomore year of NHL duty, Crosby accomplished something never before seen in the NHL or in professional North American sports. In an encore performance for the ages, Crosby recorded 120 points, becoming the youngest player to win the Art Ross and the youngest athlete in the history of North American professional sports to win a scoring title. Crosby finished with 36 goals and 84 assists; he is one of three players (Henrik Sedin, Joe Thornton) with an 80-assist season since the turn of the century.

By the time Crosby entered his fifth NHL season, he had plenty of hardware in his trophy case, but was still able to add a new accolade that season. For the first time in his career, Crosby reached the 50-goal plateau and, in doing so, led the NHL in goals for the first time, garnering his first Maurice Richard Trophy. Crosby shared the award with Lightning forward Steven Stamkos in an exciting race that saw both superstars finish with 51 goals, and Ovechkin nipping at their heels with 50.

It truly was a competition between three all-world players that came down to the wire. On April 6, 2010, five days before the end of the regular season, all three players Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys scored (Ovechkin scored twice), leaving Ovechkin and Crosby with 48 goals apiece and Stamkos with 47.

Tony Granato will coach 2018 U.S. Olympic hockey team


The first U.S. Olympic hockey team not to be stocked with NHL players since 1994 will be led by a coach who knows something about the amateur game.

Tony Granato was named Friday to lead Team USA in the Pyeongchang Games next February. He’ll be joined by assistants Chris Chelios, Scott Young, Keith Allain and Ron Rolston.

We’re a group of businessmen as far as I’m concerned, coach John Cheap NFL Jerseys USA Tortorella said after Tuesday’s win. We’re becoming really good pros.

The Pittsburgh Penguins won a record 17 straight in the 1992-93 season — before seven players on the current Blue Jackets roster were born, the Columbus Dispatch noted.

William Karlsson, Cam Atkinson and Nick Foligno scored Tuesday for the Blue Jackets, and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky had 21 saves to earn his league-leading 25th victory.

The Blue Jackets also are riding an 18-game points streak (17-0-1) and an eight-game home winning streak dating to 2-0 loss to a Nov. 23 loss to the Calgary Flames, both franchise records.

In 2018, McDavid and Draisaitl will be owed a combined $21 million, which would constitute 28 percent of the 2016-17 cap of $75 million (it’s fair to assume the cap will see a slight bump next year). But other cap commitments Edmonton have for that season include forwards Milan Lucic and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins ($6 million each), defensemen Andrej Sekera ($5.5M), Oscar Klefbom and Adam Larsson ($4.16M), and Kris Russell ($4M), and goaltender Cam Talbot ($4.16M). In all, these nine players will eat up about $55M of the cap. So figure that leaves Edmonton roughly $20 million for 14 contracts, which, doesn’t leave a lot of candy Cheap Blank Hockey Jerseys for the rest of the class.

Eddie Olczyk diagnosed with colon cancer


Longtime NHL fixture Eddie Olczyk had surgery last week to remove a cancerous tumor from his colon.

Olczyk announced the diagnosis Tuesday via the Blackhawks, whose team physician Dr. Michael Terry said the broadcaster will be undergoing further treatment in the coming weeks, including chemotherapy.

I left Ottawa for Chicago after five seasons. Both Ottawa and Chicago Cheap NFL Jerseys USA will always be special places in my heart, Havlat said in a release to the NHLPA. They are great cities and good organizations, and I met a lot of great people there. It was hard to leave Chicago after three years and then playing in another conference final in 2009. Really, it was hard to leave both Ottawa and Chicago. But that’s hockey.

Havlat was selected 26th overall by the Ottawa Senators in the 1999 NHL Draft. He made his debut during the 2000-01 season and was recently named to the franchise’s 25th anniversary team on Feb. 3.

The Czech Republic native, who last played briefly with the St. Louis Blues, also had stints with the Minnesota Wild, San Jose Sharks and New Jersey Devils. He also represented his country at the World Hockey Championship three times, winning a gold medal in 2000 and a bronze in 2011.

Havlat finished his career with 242 goals and 352 assists for 594 points in 790 NHL games.

Justin Williams, RW ( Signed with Hurricanes ) — Mr. Game 7 goes back to the place where he earned his reputation as one of the NHL’s best playoff performers, inking a two-year, $9 million ($4.5 AAV) deal with the Canes. He spent five years in Carolina, winning the Cup in 2006. Now 35, he’s a captain candidate for a young squad on the rise.

Karl Alzner, D ( Signed with Canadiens ) — Alzner, one of the more sought-after Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys defensemen on the market, heads to Montreal on a contract that was more team-friendly than expected: five years at $4.625 million per annum. The 28-year-old fills a need for the Habs, who have a ton of blue line minutes to give.

Canucks fire coach Willie Desjardins after disappointing season


Willie Desjardins’ time in Vancouver has come to an end.

The Canucks fired their coach of three years Monday after a disappointing season that produced only 69 points.

Marchand has been disciplined in the past several times for taking Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys out opponents’ legs.

In 2011, the NHL fined Marchand $2,500 for a slew-foot on then-Penguins Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys defenseman Matt Niskanen. More recently, he was given a two-game suspension in 2015 for slew-footing then-Rangers forward Derick Brassard.

Marchand took out Kronwall’s legs from behind, but it wasn’t technically considered a slew-foot because he didn’t put his arm on Kronwall.

Marchand, who leads the Bruins with 47 points in 51 games, will join goalie Tuukka Rask in representing the team at this weekend’s All-Star Game.

It’s unclear whether that factored into the NHL’s decision not to issue a suspension. Marchand may not have been able to participate if that was the case.

ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun noted an instance in 2012 when Alex Ovechkin skipped the All-Star Game while serving a three-game suspension.

After a 19-goal, 51-point rookie season two years ago, Draisaitl exploded Cheap Blank Hockey Jerseys in 2016-17, scoring 29 goals and 77 points, second to McDavid on the Oilers in both categories. In the playoffs, Draisaitl starred, leading the club with six goals and 16 points in 13 games.

Draisaitl is going to get paid, very well it should be added, perhaps on a long-term deal worth $7 million AAV. The bet here is that an agreement comes before training camp. The talented young German is simply too important to a team that has serious championship aspirations this season.

the Orioles have a good track record of finding and/or making relievers.


Nothing has changed since we wrote about the possibility of the Astros trading for Britton, so if you’re an Orioles partisan, this all still applies:

… the Orioles have a good track record of finding and/or making relievers. They correctly identified that Britton’s future was in the bullpen in the first place, and Cheap Braves Jerseys they’ve been successful at polishing rough gems like Mychal Givens or liberating underappreciated pitchers like Darren O’Day. I don’t Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys know what a Richard Bleier is, but it apparently has a 1.60 ERA in 39 innings.

The Yankees do not have an ace right now. CC Sabathia is doing a fine impression of one, and that might be enough, but his underlying numbers suggest a season worse than the ERA he’s put up, and he also is averaging fewer than 5-2/3 innings per start. Aces aren’t leaving so much work behind for the bullpen. Luis Severino has a better claim to being New York’s top starter, but he’s 23 years old and the 120 innings he’s thrown this year are already a big-league career-high — does he have 200-plus frames in his arm? No one knows, because he’s never shown us either way.

On top of those questions, Michael Pineda is out for the year, and the Yankees have already used nine different starters in 2017. Their depth hasn’t impressed, there are questions at the top of the rotation, and while Masahiro Tanaka is once again pitchable, he’s not exactly the Tanaka of old, either. Adding Darvish would fix a lot of problems, and games where he can be paired up with New York’s recently upgraded bullpen are about as close to an automatic win as baseball allows.

Rock finally gets his due from the BBWAA. A seven-time All-Star, Raines was the subject of a famous decade-long campaign from the new school of sabremetric baseball writers, using advanced statistics to build a convincing case for him being one of the best outfielders of his generation.
