Jets working out several free agent defensive linemen

The Jets may be trying to patch a hole before the draft with some veteran help.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Jets are set to work out a pair of free agent defensive linemen on Monday. Tyrunn Walker and LaVar Edwards are due for the meeting with the team.

Walker played in every game for the Rams last season, starting four times and finishing the year with 22 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. Walker has also played for the Lions and Saints since 2012.

Collins fractured the forearm Dec. 24 in Arizona and soon thereafter had surgery to repair the break. It did not heal properly, thus the need for a second procedure. He posted on Instagram a picture of himself Monday in a hospital gown.

Limited Mens Greg Maddux Jersey This will be a huge season for Collins, as he is entering the final year of his four-year, $6.1 million rookie contract and is in line for a big deal, if he plays to the level the Giants expect of him. A 2015 second-round draft pick out of Alabama, he was a legitimate NFL Defensive Authentic Paul Stastny Jersey Player of the Year candidate in 2016, named first-team All-Pro and a Pro Bowl starter. His 125 tackles were a Giants record for a safety, and he was the first NFL safety in 16 years to record 100-plus tackles, at least five interceptions and at least three sacks.

J.P. Finley of NBC Sports Washington reports that the Redskins aren’t expected to be interested in bringing Breeland back once he’s healthy. They signed Orlando Scandrick to go with Josh Norman, Quinton Dunbar, Fabian Moreau and Josh Holsey on the cornerback depth chart.

It is time to return to WFAN, Francesa told the paper.

Calvin Munson Mens Jersey It remains unclear what exactly what that role will be, though Francesa referenced a project he’s been working on with his agency, CAA. The Post reported Monday that even with CAA’s help he had been unable to find a match with ESPN Radio and WOR, and had missed talking New York sports more than he thought he would when he left WFAN in December.

Francesa said that his decision to return to the WFAN airwaves, though, ultimately came down to a mystery group trying to keep him off of them.

Cardinals reportedly serious about moving up for QB

If you look at it from a need standpoint, the Cardinals should be high on the list of teams pursuing a quarterback. But picking 15th makes it harder.
Men's Adidas Buffalo Sabres #89 Alexander Mogilny Authentic White 2018 Winter Classic NHL Jersey
That apparently breeds a certain urgency.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cardinals are making a lot of noise about moving up in the first round.

Authentic Sam Mills Jersey If they are, the logical landing spots would be the Broncos (fifth overall) and Colts (sixth), unless they’re prepared to swing a major deal. The Cardinals have an extra third-rounder, but lack the stockpile of draft picks that also-desperate Buffalo has at hand (two picks in each of the first three rounds this year). That could lead General Manager Steve Keim to consider dealing future picks if he’s hell-bent on getting one this year.

Baker Mayfield: He’s got tremendous feet. His first move out of the pocket is quick. Him and Josh Rosen get themselves in position to throw the football better than any of the other guys in the draft. He has great touch and he has definitely enough arm strength to make all the throws.

He’s gonna love to practice every day and give the team energy ’cause that’s who he is.

That’s Authentic Kevan Miller Jersey one guy I really am intrigued with because he can spin it and he’s been in a pro-style offense and he’s been hard coached by Bobby [Petrino], Arians said. He brings that unique skill-set, and it makes me look back at Vince Young. Vince could beat you and he was a heck of a leader. I don’t know why it didn’t work out for him, but listening to him now, telling his story, he’s like, ‘I didn’t put the time in.’ I think Lamar puts the time in. He’s going to get better, and he just brings that unique ability to break the game open with his legs.

Dave Robinson Elite Jersey Arians doesn’t buy the talk that Jackson isn’t ready to be an NFL-style passer.

He’s been in a pro-style offense, Arians said. He’s more of a scrambler with designed runs. I don’t think I’d design runs for him. I would just let him, a la Russell Wilson, take what’s there, and whoosh, take off running.

Arians had success coaching Carson Palmer, Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger and Peyton Manning, but he never coached a runner like Jackson. He would have loved that opportunity.

Aaron Rodgers buys minority stake in Bucks: ‘A dream come true’

Aaron Rodgers has long professed his love for the NBA game and the Milwaukee Bucks.

In fact, he has often used the hashtag #midrange because he loves that part of the game and has referred to Vlade Divac as one of his favorite players in interviews.

Now, the Green Bay Packers quarterback has a stake in the game.

The emergence of Hall as a superstar is another tectonic shift for the franchise. The Devils have been synonymous with their star power radiating from the crease outward, whether it was Martin Brodeur as the face of the franchise playing behind Scott Stevens and Scott Niedermayer, or more recently with Schneider as the team’s top name.

The Knights aren’t my first choice to win it all, but I can’t count them out. The question is can they win the Cup, and it’s quite evident that they can. Vegas continues to surprise, and that’s the type of team you have to watch for this time of year. But I’m still betting someone comes along and stops Sin City.

Aaron Boone was tossed from his big-league debut for whipping his helmet to the ground with the Reds in 1997. 

So though top prospect  Gleyber Torres went hitless in four at-bats in his first major league game —  a 5-1 win over the Blue Jays at  Yankee Stadium on Sunday — at least he had that over his  Yankees manager.

Browns aren’t bringing Barkley or Chubb in for visits

Jared Boll Authentic Jersey
The Browns haven’t bothered trying to perpetuate the ruse that they might use the first overall pick on anything other than a quarterback.
Youth Nike Denver Broncos #29 Bradley Roby White Vapor Untouchable Elite Player NFL Jersey
What’s slightly more interesting is what could be an attempt to cover their tracks as it pertains to the fourth overall pick.

According to Albert Breer of SI.com, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley does not have a visit to the Browns among his pre-draft travels. And N.C. State defensive end Bradley Chubb said on the Rich Eisen Show that he didn’t either.

It is sort of weird that ESPN did this documentary considering it employed Knight after he did all Authentic Tyler Lockett Jersey these things at Indiana, with a lot more alleged. Anyway, the man who broke the story, Robert Abbott, is a producer who worked for what was then known as CNN/SI, and he directs and narrates the program. It was quite a feat for Abbott, but with Abbott narrating the 30 for 30, it came across as self-serving, even if that wasn’t the intention.

ESPN+, besides offering live games that are not on regular ESPN TV and ESPN’s free app, will try to have an inventory of documentaries that, like Netflix’s programming, will have an evergreen quality to them. This documentary will go into the inventory, but it is not something that will make people sign up for the service.
Jeremy Roenick Authentic Jersey
His batting average through four games stands at .133, which is still better than the .056 average he generated during spring training with the Mets.

The Mets have a clear financial interest in nudging Tebow along the path toward the big leagues. But he’ll need to at least look and, from time to time, act the part. A periodic home run in a big spot won’t be nearly enough, if Tebow can’t ever get it done on the days when people are paying far less attention.

It raises the question of the practical deadline for Tebow’s one-man fantasy baseball camp. With Steve Spurrier wanting Tebow to play quarterback for the Orlando franchise of the Alliance of American Football, Tebow may need to ask himself a tough question about whether he should continue to spin his wheels in the mud around home plate or return to the sport in which he was a college star and, for a while, a big deal in the NFL.

Cleveland went just 8 of 34 on 3-pointers and missed eight of 20 free throws.

The Cavs’ playoff theme is: Whatever It Takes.

Well, it’s now going to take a first-round comeback.

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.
Youth Mike Muscala Swingman Red Nike Jersey: NBA Atlanta Hawks #31 Statement Edition
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.
Joe Namath Mens Jersey
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 SI.com 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.
Youth Reebok Philadelphia Flyers #16 Bobby Clarke Premier Orange New Third NHL Jersey
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.
Elite Alexander Mogilny Jersey
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.
