Seahawks signing another non-Kaepernick quarterback

The Seahawks continue to add to their depth chart, though it may not impact that one rather big possibility they were linked Clinton McDonald Authentic Jersey to last week.

According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Seahawks are re-signing quarterback Austin Davis, adding another less-than-stellar backup to Russell Wilson.

They signed Stephen Morris (who has never thrown a regular season pass) last week after their reported workout with Colin Kaepernick fell through.

John Gibson allowed five goals on 24 shots before being pulled after two periods. Ryan Miller allowed three power-play goals in the third.

From my perspective it’s hard to forget what we just did. Very undisciplined, very disappointed in our reaction in the hockey game, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. Those are the things we have to address. We’re not going to get yourself any kind of opportunity to take the number of penalties we took, and I call them selfish penalties.

The game turned early in the second after Brandon Montour fell near center ice, giving the Sharks a two on one. Donskoi converted on a give-and-go with Evander Kane and San Jose was off to the races.

Saints coach Sean Payton told Peter King of that he thought they’d have still taken tackle Ryan Ramczyk with the 32nd pick even if the 49ers hadn’t traded in front of them to take Foster 31st last year. But he admitted they were considering Foster, and were on the phone with his girlfriend during the draft.

Foster said after last year’s draft that the Saints were on the phone with him leading up to their pick, and indicated they wanted to take him. They also wanted to talk to his girlfriend, asking if she was going to be able to help Foster stay out of trouble.

Archie Bradley Limited Jersey This was part of our fact-finding late in the round, Payton said. I hadn’t had a chance to meet his girlfriend during the pre-draft process, and we were still in the process of deciding. I think we were going to take Ramczyk anyway, but I wanted to talk to her about Reuben.

Foster won’t be participating in the 49ers offseason program, after he was charged with felony domestic violence. He’s accused of dragging her by the hair, punching her in the head a number of times and puncturing her eardrum. The team keeping him at arm’s length is a preemptive move, since the league hasn’t put him on the commissioner’s exempt list as they have done in similar cases.

Company claims it was cut out of production of LeBron James’ ‘The Shop’

Brandon Marshall Authentic Jersey Cavaliers star LeBron James’ barbershop-themed series The Shop has now hatched as many legal battles as it has episodes after Adventure Enterprises filed a lawsuit claiming that it consulted with James’ multimedia company, UNINTERRUPTED, about the idea before being cut out of the production.

The suit claims that over a period of two years, Adventure Enterprises engaged in numerous talks with UNINTERRUPTED in order to flesh out the idea and figure out a strategy for pitching it to various networks, according to details of the suit published by TMZ Sports.

Tirico is under a long-term deal with NBC, which called for him to succeed Bob Costas as the host of the Olympics. Tirico did that last month for the first time. It also makes him the eventual successor to Al Michaels on Sunday Night Football, but Michaels, 73, has shown no signs of hanging it up anytime soon.

Tirico could end up calling the seven extra games (mostly on Thursday) that will air exclusively on NFL Network and not on Fox.

Nathan Walker Authentic Jersey Earlier Tuesday, Dan Patrick told The Post he is leaving NBC’s Football Night in America pregame. Tirico is the leading candidate to be the solo host. This made it even further unlikely NBC would let Tirico do double duty with Fox.

It’s just in my DNA, Wade said. I love the stage.

The 36-year-old flashed the form of a three-time NBA champion with the Heat, not the journeyman who bounced around the last two seasons with forgettable stints in Chicago and Cleveland.

Wade made 11 of 17 shots and put on a show in the second Authentic Bryan Little Jersey quarter and put it away in the fourth.

I saw moments, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. That’s what defines Dwyane Wade.

The 76ers could soon get their defining Process moment from Embiid.

The Sixers sorely needed Embiid, their All-Star center out with a broken orbital bone, to settle them as they fell in a quick a 16-point hole.

The Sixers lost for the first time since March 13 to Indiana. They won 16 straight to end the regular season and the first game of the playoffs and played their 10th straight game without Embiid.

Avs D Samuel Girard out Game 3 vs. Predators with upper-body injury

The Colorado Avalanche will be without defenseman Samuel Girard for Game 3 against Nashville with an upper-body injury.

The 19-year-old Girard made his Stanley Cup playoff debut during Game 1 in Nashville, only to sit out the second contest with the injury. The Avalanche trail the first-round series 2-0 heading into Monday night’s game at the Pepsi Center.

Arnovitz: The Utah Jazz will advance and then take the Rockets to seven games in the conference semifinals.

MacMullan: DeMar DeRozan will be an absolute stud. Having spent time in Toronto last weekend, the unease surrounding the Raptors’ fan base is palpable. They are worried about losing Game 1 (again). They are worried Kyle Lowry and DeRozan will shrink in the moment. The matchups were not set when I was there, giving them ample time to fret about every possible doomsday scenario. Enough already. DeRozan has submitted an All-NBA season, becoming a more efficient player, expanding his range to the 3-point line and finally — finally! — tuning out the naysayers. He’s also assumed the mantle as the NBA’s unofficial spokesperson for confronting mental health issues, yet another reason to root for Heir Canada.

“But more importantly, I want to show that a lot of times guys that have big arms — they have a hard time controlling it, and taking tempo off of the ball, and layering it and really controlling it. We put him in some situations today where he can really show that control and that touch.”

Allen, who transferred to Wyoming from Reedley College, in the Fresno, Calif., area, told NFL Network he was just trying to enjoy the moment.

“I was in junior college a few years ago, so to be here sitting in this spot talking to these NFL executives, it’s a dream come true. It’s something that not a lot of people saw coming,” Allen said. “It is surreal. This is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do my entire life. Sitting here, it’s something that I’ve always dreamt of.”

The Jets contingent is traveling from Wyoming to Oklahoma for a private workout with Baker Mayfield on Saturday, according to a source.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen revealed before working out privately for the Giants he attended dinner with co-owner Steve Tisch and Chris Mara, John’s brother and the team’s senior vice president of player personnel.

Appearing Friday on “The Rich Eisen Show,” Rosen described the experience as “awesome,” and said the dinner came before he worked out the next morning for the Giants, who own the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft.

Baker Mayfield isn’t going to like this comparison any better.

Elite Reshad Jones Jersey Already unfavorably likened to NFL flameout Johnny Manziel, Oklahoma’s Heisman-winning quarterback is now being tabbed as a potential bust by one of the most disastrous draft picks of all-time 鈥?Ryan Leaf.
Adidas NHL Women's Evander Kane Navy Blue Home Authentic Jersey - #9 Buffalo Sabres
Leaf had kinder words for the other quarterbacks likely to be taken in the first round. He labeled Josh Rosen as the most pro-ready and most self-aware, and believes that Sam Darnold’s maturity will help him evolve. That’s apparently unlike Mayfield, who was arrested last year for public intoxication and received constant criticism for his on-field antics, Jason Kidd Youth jersey including a crotch-grabbing incident, which resulted in him being suspended for the start of his final Sooners home game.

I’ve had a lot of people trying to give me advice through all this, but the thing that I’ve realized is the person I am is the reason I’m here today, Mayfield said shortly before winning the Heisman. I’ve had success because I’m confident and been enthusiastic and passionate about what I’m doing.

Darnold is widely considered the top quarterback in the draft and, despite all sorts of chatter and noise, remains likely to be taken by the Browns with the No. 1 pick. Allen is the biggest quarterback with the strongest arm and is intriguing from a development standpoint. Some team will take him early in the first round and attempt to groom him, working with his immense physical abilities.

The Giants attended Darnold’s Pro Day in Los Angeles and Allen’s Pro Day in Laramie.

The Giants, at No. 2, certainly could take a quarterback, with 37-year-old Eli Manning entering his 15th NFL season. It remains more likely they will bypass a quarterback in the first round and select running back Saquon Barkley or defensive end Bradley Chubb.

It is not as if the Giants and general manager Dave Gettleman are opposed to taking a quarterback in this draft, even with Manning set as the starter. If one of these prospects were deemed worthy of ranking as Manning’s eventual successor, the Giants would take him. It is believed the Giants do not view this year’s top quarterbacks 鈥?Darnold, Allen, Rosen and Mayfield 鈥?as an elite class.

Browns exploring possible uniform changes

When it comes to iconic NFL uniforms, the current iteration worn by the Cleveland Browns doesn’t rank high on the list.
Men's Nike Los Angeles Rams #22 Trumaine Johnson Limited Navy Blue Tank Top Suit NFL Jersey
The Browns changed their uniform design for the start of the 2015 season. In a video announcing the changes, Todd Van Horne of Nike said the Browns were really, really clear about what they wanted to do with their redesigned uniforms.

The Browns can’t change their uniforms again until 2020 as the league prohibits changes within five years of a previous redesign.

The team’s current uniforms aren’t particularly inspiring. Of course, it doesn’t help it that the team that has worn them has won just one game in the last two seasons either.

Watson had 61 catches for 522 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games with the Ravens last season. He joins Coby Fleener, Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui on the tight end depth chart in New Orleans.

Jared Veldheer Elite Jersey Are Jets targeting Baker Mayfield?

There’s plenty of chatter making the rounds at the league meetings about plenty of topics. Here’s one specific nugget to keep in mind: Some believe the Jets made the trade Brandon Linder Jersey from No. 6 to No. 3 with a specific plan in mind to land quarterback Baker Mayfield.

It would be a fascinating development, if it happens. The Jets haven’t had a true franchise quarterback since Joe Namath, and Mayfield would instantly bring a Namath-style vibe to New York, if he’s the pick.

[There are] a lot of receivers in this draft, for instance, Jones said. I am not sure how many first-round receivers. But there are down-the-line receivers. That is not bad. That might work. There are certainly some linebackers there. There is some defensive talent that has a chance to drop. Therein lies your opportunity there at positions that you certainly aren’t stacked up in that you might not say is the position you are interested in. . . . Obviously, you could see that Dez Bryant dropping to you at the 20th spot.

Ryane Clowe Jersey The top center left on the market, Jensen had been a college tackle and reserve guard for the Ravens before beating out Tony Bergstrom for the pivot after Jeremy Zuttah was traded, re-acquired, and released last season. His job got tougher when the Ravens lost both of their likely starting guards, including star Marshal Yanda, by the end of Week 2.

Moncrief has missed 11 games over the past two seasons with injuries, so his best campaign was in 2015, when he made it all the way to 733 yards. His best four-game stretch during that run was when he racked up 275 yards and three touchdowns over the first quarter of the season. That’s fine, but Moncrief’s probably going to take playing time away from undrafted free agent Keelan Cole, who racked up 294 yards over a two-game stretch last season. (This assumes the Jaguars cut Allen Hurns, and this is an even weirder signing if they don’t.)

With Strahan co-hosting Good Morning America Monday thru Friday, he would not have been an option for the pregame show if it remained in L.A.

But McVay is hardly the only coach who’s figured out how to connect with Millennials.

He ended up starting games for the Panthers late in the season (which had more to do with them than him), and he returned a punt for a touchdown against the Jets.

He’ll have a chance to return punts for the Bills since they didn’t re-sign Brandon Tate.

Who, given his history, would make Manziel a starting quarterback? Who would even put him on a depth chart? Whatever help he could provide in practice (at this point who knows?) would be offset by the intense spotlight that, four years after avoiding it, he now fully embraces.

His next chance to get someone to take a chance Matt Besler Jersey on him comes in nine days, when he makes his on-field debut in the Spring League. If that doesn’t work, the CFL provides his next chance to secure his NFL last chance. If/when he shows that he can perform at a high level, maybe someone will decide to roll the dice.

But it won’t be easy 鈥?especially since anyone who signs him necessarily will be welcoming not only the possibility of another Manziel meltdown but also the non-stop attention and scrutiny that goes along with it.

Chargers sign Geno Smith

Whether it’s 2017 third-rounder Antonio Garcia, free-agent pickup Matt Tobin or somebody else holding down the left side, the Patriots will get by, even with Brady taking a few more lumps.

Although we’re still waiting on specific examples of what is and is not a penalty, suffice to say that the penalty is going to make significant changes to the sport of football. The league office tells PFT that a USA Today report that the competition committee found fewer than 10 examples of plays from last year that would have been penalties under the new rule is incorrect. Instead, the league pointed us to comments from committee chair Rich McKay, who said the new rule will make a major difference.

“It’s a substantial change,” McKay said. “Lowering their head, creating a different spine angle, and delivering a blow . . . we need to protect all players at all times and say that technique is not allowed. So if you lower your head to initiate contact and you initiate, it’s a foul. . . . It’s one of the most dangerous techniques there is, but yet we’ve allowed it to creep in and it’s now very prevalent. And we need to get it out. And we’re not going to get it out by saying, ‘We need to teach it better,’ we’re going to get it out by penalizing it.”

He visited last week, and has 42 starts in four seasons.

The Lions didn’t need him after signing former Jets starting center Wesley Johnson last week.

The Patriots, fresh off losing Super Bowl 52, have lost some luster in NFL free agency. Cornerback Malcolm Butler, running back Dion Lewis and left tackle Nate Solder all cashed in with big contracts elsewhere. Offensive tackle Cameron Fleming hasn’t been re-signed. Wide receiver Danny Amendola, a longtime fan favorite, is gone — to a division rival in Miami, no less.

But as usual, the Patriots have practiced patience, not panic. Well before the end of the offseason and with the 2018 NFL Draft still at their disposal, their retaining and gaining outweigh their losing.flames_009

(It’s) especially gratifying, knowing you have a couple impact players out and still be able to do Gerald Everett Authentic Jersey what we do, Prince said, alluding to the injuries to Dennis Schroder and Kent Bazemore, two of the team’s top three scorers.

Limited to one hit through six innings by Bauer, the Royals got the one run they needed on Duda’s second homer, a rocket into the seats in right field.

Duda jumped on Bauer’s 90 mph fastball and drove it over the wall for Kansas City’s first run since the Royals scored two in the first inning Friday. Duda has both of Kansas City’s homers this season.

Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall is likely headed to the disabled list with a right calf injury. He got hurt while making a running catch in the first and was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the second.

In the West, there are the Rams’ new super team, the up-and-coming 49ers with Kyle Shanahan and Jimmy Garoppolo and the Seahawks, who still remain a threat with Russell Wilson despite some key offseason departures.

Foltynewicz gave up two homers in five innings, but struck out seven and one of his three runs was unearned.

I thought he was really good, Braves manager Brian Snitker said. His stuff was live and he was competing. It was a good, positive outing.

Facing the high-scoring Nationals will be a challenge, though. Foltynewicz was Womens Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey 1-2 with a 6.64 ERA in four games against them last year and is 2-2 with a 5.63 ERA in six career outings.

The Braves play the Nationals again next week in Washington as part of a nine-game road trip that begins Thursday in Colorado. The Nationals’ home opener is Thursday against the New York Mets.

Harper’s second-inning shot off Sean Newcomb (0-1) to center field gave the Nationals a 5-0 lead. He also drew four walks and scored three runs.

Harper has three homers — including two in his last two at-bats during Sunday’s 6-5 win at Cincinnati — and seven RBI. He reached in eight consecutive plate appearances, two shy of the Nationals record, before grounding out in the ninth.

Hand is likely still going to be drafted high鈥攖oward the end of Day 2 at worst. Looking the part as a 6’4 and 297-pound lineman who can play different roles has a way of automatically elevating value. But his production didn’t match those physical qualities while Hand played at the highest level of college football.

His single-season sack high was three, which Hand reached in 2015 and 2017. He also recorded only 14.5 tackles for a loss over four seasons.

Womens Will Sutton Jersey ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. was among Omar Vizquel Jersey those who thought Hand would have a breakout year during his first season as a full-time starter in 2017. He was wrong.

He’s a tweener, Kiper wrote. Not big enough to be a tackle but not explosive enough to play end at the next level.

Despite those words, there’s still plenty of hope for Hand based on his physical build and strength. Those desirable traits just need to show up on the field more often.

The lack of plays聽Averett made could partly be blamed on his size. At 5’11 and 183 pounds, he’s a little undersized for an NFL cornerback and might get pushed around. Over time, though, Averett could learn how to lean on his athleticism to make up for any size shortcomings.

I would hope that maybe I could come in and give him a little bit different perspective, Patricia said at this week’s league meetings. Maybe something from my point of view from playing against him a couple times, and just certain things that I look at when we’re going against other quarterbacks that might help him out. Maybe some different ways to look at defense, from that standpoint. Try to look at some different alignments or different coverages or different fronts, and then help him from that standpoint.

It was worth it.
