Teen arrested for stealing Bortles truck, trespassing

Make being a teenage idiot great again. Apparently, this is the motto Joseph Horton, 18, of Jacksonville is using as he navigates through life.

According to the Jacksonville Beach Police, Horton stole Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles’ truck before deciding to trespass on the signal caller’s property.

Instead of shock or embarrassment or sympathy, the players, all of them young, white suburban kids, quickly concluded that surely he and his friends had done something to provoke such an extreme response. Cops, they told him, just don’t act like that without a reason. “I tried to tell them what it was like for us, and you could tell they weren’t even listening,” Sabathia recalled. “They were trying to tell me what my life was like. They heard nothing. They didn’t want to hear anything, so I said f— it. I don’t even bother anymore.”

The players were activated by different events that formed a whole. Killings by police weren’t isolated. They were personal. In July 2016, Alton Sterling, an unarmed black man selling music CDs on the sidewalk, was shot and killed at close range by a Baton Rouge officer. Eric Reid, a safety for the 49ers, lived in Baton Rouge as a kid. “When I look back on my life, I don’t want it to be as a hypocrite,” Reid said. “And when I raise my kids and tell them to do things the right way, I can say I did the same.”

In the meantime, losing Ingram to start the regular season certainly provides a blow to a Saints ‘ ground game that finished the 2017 season ranked fifth in the league (129.4 yards per game).

But the Saints are in good hands with Kamara, and the team looks forward to seeing whether Williams, Lasco, Edmunds or Scott can emerge to take on a complementary role.

I’m anxious to evaluate the guys that we have here and our numbers here right now, Payton said.

This year’s tackle class is…unspectacular. To help you get a sense of what you are in for, Bleacher Report proudly presents a Good, Bad and Terrifying breakdown of Will Richardson.

Good: Richardson meets or exceeds minimum requirements for size, athleticism and technique. He’s aware and active on the second level and when recognizing blitzes and stunts.

Bad: Richardson’s scouting report is full of B’s and C-pluses but no A’s.

Michael Griffin Jersey to sign one-day contract, retire as Titan

Michael Griffin is making one last trip to Nashville as a professional football player.

I don’t get angry, Jacobs said. The people who say stuff like that, not a lot of people really understand the game. Running backs are the only position on the field that do everything: They run, they catch, they block in pass protection and they tackle. You can’t go wrong with that.

Jacobs already has spoken with Barkley to express encouragement.

If you can’t run the football in the NFL, Jacobs said, you can’t win the game.
Elite Kids Jaelen Strong Jersey
With the pick of Barkley and the second-round pick of offensive guard Will Hernandez, it seems as if the Giants are trying to bring back the smashmouth brand of rushing the ball, play-action passes and defense that resulted in the Super Bowl XLII and XLVI titles.

Bringing in Saquon and beefing up our O-line with that draft pick is bringing back the old ways, Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins said, because that’s how they won two championships.

Former LSU basketball player Brian Bridgewater Jersey trying out for Bucs

The Buccaneers will have a slew of players trying out for the team during this weekend’s rookie minicamp, including one who has been off the gridiron for some time.
Giants Jersey
Brian Bridgewater played wide receiver during his junior year of high school, but dropped the sport to concentrate on basketball. That worked out with a spot on the LSU team, but an NBA future is not in the cards for Bridgewater so he is trying to keep his athletic career alive by giving football another shot.

You mentioned Berman. He was synonymous with ESPN’s NFL coverage. Have you talked about bringing Boomer back for the Draft?

We really haven’t. Listen, if that’s something he wanted to do, to be part of it, we could certainly discuss it. But I think he had felt pretty good about his run after all those years on the Draft. We mutually decided to cut back on what he was doing. I think he would honestly tell you the same thing. That wasn’t at the top of his list鈥?He was great about passing the torch to Trey. Trey was always great and respectful toward Boomer. Knowing Chris as well as I know him, he would want to stay out of Trey’s way. He thinks that Trey has earned this opportunity now… Boomer has always been great about that.

Johnson hasn’t actually played in a game since 2014.

In between his time with Gruden with the Bucs and Raiders, he spent time with the (deep breath) 49ers, Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL, Browns, Bengals, 49ers again, Bengals again, Jets, Colts, Bills, Ravens, Giants, and Texans.
Limited Mens Eric Staal Jersey
After whiffing on another defensive Authentic Russell Wilson Jersey end (Boston College’s John Bosa) at the same spot the year before, the Dolphins did one worse with Kumerow, a shocking pick. He had five sacks and zero starts through three forgettable seasons.

The Vikings ignored the red flags with Underwood, who had mental health issues that led to his disappearance from his rookie training camp. Underwood wasn’t ready to play in the league, and Vikings officials learned it the hard way.

Limited Mens Orlando Scandrick Jersey Sims disappointed the Patriots with his questionable work ethic and lack of production. He had 17 career sacks, and it took him being arrested for cocaine possession to finally make New England cut ties with him before the 1990 season.

Lamar Jackson Jersey hasn鈥檛 heard from Joe Flacco, yet

Authentic Bruce Bochy Jersey After the Ravens picked Lamar Jackson in round one, incumbent starter Joe Flacco had nothing to say about Jackson. Since then, Flacco has had nothing to say to Jackson.
Limited George Blanda Youth Olive/Camo Nike Jersey - #16 NFL Oakland Raiders 2017 Salute to Service
Authentic Jonathan Ericsson Jersey I don鈥檛 know yet, Jackson said. How they see things on the field. What made them learn the system even faster, stuff like that.

Of course, there鈥檚 only so much help they can provide as Jackson gets his feet wet, because it鈥檚 becoming more and more clear that the Ravens will be finding ways to get Jackson on the field while Flacco is still the Authentic Julio Teheran Jersey starter. Whether that means splitting Flacco out wide in Wildcat formation or using Jackson in a Kordell Stewart-style slash role remains to be seen.

It also remains to be seen whether Flacco cooperates with that approach happily or whether he flashes any type of irritation or frustration with the ball from time to time being temporarily taken from his hands, so that the Ravens can decide whether to permanently take it away from him.

The other quarterback is Russell Wilson, and his contract situation eventually could get messy.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the current expectation from Wilson鈥檚 perspective is that he鈥檒l finish his current deal and receive the franchise tag in 2020. Based on his 2019 cap number of $25.286 million, it will cost the Seahawks $30.34 million to keep him for another season after the expiration of his current deal.

The next question becomes whether Wilson will go year to year at that point, like Kirk Cousins did in Washington. Under that scenario, Wilson would make $36.41 million (a 20-percent raise) in 2021. Come 2022, the Seahawks would have to decide whether to tag him again, at a 44-percent raise, or let him enter free agency.

The tag in 2022 would equate to $52.43 million for one year.

In Pittsburgh, Martin learned about overcoming adversity.

He signed a hefty five-year, $25 million deal but the first year was a struggle. After the Olympics, Martin’s grandfather — who he was very close to — passed away. And to start the season, he was still working his way back from the arm injury. “Adjusting to the city of Pittsburgh, the market that’s so crazy about hockey and their sports teams, was hard,” Martin says. “There were a lot of expectations. It took awhile to get used to it.”

Then-Penguins GM Ray Shero sat Martin down several times, and even asked the defenseman if he wanted get a fresh start with a trade. “Ray Shero was really good about it,” Martin said. “I said I’d come back, and I refocused. The next two-and-a-half seasons — one was shortened by lockout — were some of my better seasons as a player.”

“Shoot, he is a smaller version of John Wall,” Wizards forward Otto Porter said. “He’s so quick. He is amazing … Somebody you can’t sleep on. He might be small, but he can create a lot of havoc in the paint.”

But Lawson’s life off the court appeared to be just as disruptive. During the 2014-15 season, Lawson was arrested twice on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. In January 2015, he was pulled over in Denver for speeding, which led to his arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence. Lawson was charged with speeding, careless driving and driving while intoxicated, but as part of a plea deal reached, he pleaded guilty to driving while his ability was impaired and guilty to a lane-usage violation while having three other charges dismissed.

Among those honorable mentions: Julius Randle calling out Hart for talking too much on team plane rides. Kuzma rubbing it in Ball’s and Hart’s faces that he’s among the finalists for #BestStyle for the NBA’s fan-voted awards. Kuzma challenging Ball to make a better album than Nas, who reportedly will be releasing his next album on June 15.

At the beginning of week, Ball celebrated his first win in Fortnite by screaming and waking up his girlfriend on his Instagram post. After seeing tweets about Ball’s first victory, Hart — who plays as much Fortnite as any NBA player — claimed he’s Ball’s “proud father.”

After passing on Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in consecutive years, the Browns finally took a quarterback in the first round last weekend when Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was the first overall pick. General manager John Dorsey kept the pick under wraps until the very end, which promptly ended speculation that the Browns were taking mock-draft favorite Josh Allen, the Wyoming quarterback long on Deatrich Wise Jr Authentic Jersey freakish athleticism but short on franchise-QB-level game film.

In fact, the Browns never considered taking Allen with the top selection.

So how did Cleveland end up on Mayfield? Here’s the honest to God’s truth, Highsmith told fans at the Hall of Fame Luncheon Club, via the Canton Repository’s Steve Doerschuk.

Rutgers’ Gus Edwards Jersey signs with Ravens as undrafted free agent after NFL Draft

Gus Edwards , Rutgers ‘ leading rusher in 2017, has signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Ravens following the conclusion of the 2018 NFL Draft, a person with knowledge of the deal told NJ Advance Media.

I want to set up a better life than I had for my son (Augustus Jr.), put him in a better environment than I had, Edwards told NJ Anders Lee Jersey Advance Media before the draft. It’s definitely a great motivation for me every day.

Doug Harvey Youth Jersey Ryan Izzo is another blocking tight end in a draft class flooded with them. He has pretty good hands and enough quickness to be a factor in the underneath game, but his calling cards are a fullback-like wham when he’s run blocking and the size and toughness to take on edge rushers. Izzo’s likely a career No. 2 tight end, but he could have a pretty long stay in the NFL. This is not, repeat, NOT, Gronk’s eventual replacement. The Patriots have always had a role for guys like this. Grade: Fair.

Justin Jackson rushed for 5,440 career yards at Northwestern, adding 122 career receptions.
Shane Ray Youth Jersey
He also knows that he’s in the business of winning football games. Griffin has been hired to help.

After the first two days of the draft, spanning the first three rounds, the biggest disappointment in my view was that Griffin wasn’t chosen among the first 100 picks. Yet that disappointment was probably based on sentiment rather than hardcore football.

Draft analysts, including the NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, contend that the area of the draft when Griffin went off the board was pretty much about the spot when he should have gone because at 6-0, 227, he’s what scouts call a tweener 鈥?lacking the prototype dimensions to fit into the box of any specific position.

That wasn’t the expected answer, but it spoke volumes. People have聽always discounted Griffin, and that hasn’t changed with his entry into pro football. He deals with it, embracing the chance to prove doubters wrong. Again.

One of Smith’s college teammates, on the other hand, might be sliding down a few boards. According to The Ringer’s Michael Lombardi, formerly Bill Belichick’s right-hand personnel man, some Brandon Marshall Jersey teams have docked Georgia running back Sony Michel for undisclosed medical reasons . Michel is ranked No. 32 on Mayock’s list , a sign that his stock is still holding strong in light of the most recent medical reports.
Authentic Kids Antonio Gates Jersey
After watching the Broncos draft Paxton Lynch two years ago, Pro Bowl cornerback Chris Harris wants nothing to do with a quarterback at No. 5 overall this time around.

Mayock’s position rankings, which published Thursday morning on NFL.com, confirms how much he likes Davenport. He puts him behind only North Carolina State’s Bradley Chubb, a sure-to-be top-10 selection.

But Ansah made a quick transition in part because he played in a simpler rush scheme to begin his career. Davenport would be asked to play in Detroit’s current scheme, being installed this offseason by new coach Matt Patricia, which requires defensive lineman to be versatile to play in its multi-look front.

In a Matt Patricia system, which is very complicated, I think it’s going to take him a long time, Mayock said. To answer your question in a vacuum, he’s better off in a simple system where he can just line up and go as opposed to being asked to do multiple tasks.
Game Mens Nate Prosser Jersey
Among the early-round defensive linemen who are more prepared to step in and contribute immediately, Mayock highlighted Vita Vea, Da’Ron Payne and Justin Jones on the interior. As for edge rushers, the analyst mentioned mid-round options Rasheem Green, Tyquan Lewis and Jalyn Holmes.

Those are several names of bigger-bodied type guys that I think would fit in Detroit, Mayock said.

As for Guice, the most likely first-round option if the Lions opt to address their need at running back early in the draft, Mayock likes the LSU runner’s game, but notes concerns about his football character.

He’s a first-round talent, Mayock said. Reminds me a little bit, just style-wise, of a Frank Gore. Gets a lot of carries, tough, his issues more are just 鈥?I don’t know what the right word is, maybe it’s some immaturity off the field.

Virginia police won’t release video of Paul Richardson Jr. traffic stop

Virginia State Police won’t release video of a traffic stop involving a Washington Redskins wide receiver who said a state trooper asked if he was a gang member or drug dealer.

Tweets by Paul Richardson Jr., who is black, about the questions he was asked during a Tuesday traffic stop prompted an internal review by state police.

Police are reviewing Redskins WR Paul Richardson’s claims that the trooper who pulled him over asked if he was in a gang and said he thought he was a drug dealer.

Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said his team must guard against overconfidence after the lopsided win in the opener and continue its one-game-at-a-time approach that has proved to be so successful during their storybook first season.

“We just have to be ready to play the next game,” Gallant said. “We know San Jose is a good hockey club and that (7-0) is not going to happen again.

“They’re a great hockey team and we got some early goals on them and took advantage of that. They’ll be a lot better and hopefully we’ll be better, too.”

Rosen, meanwhile, was winless in three games against Stanford, though he did throw for 480 yards and three scores in a 58-34 loss this past season.

“Three times a game he makes the ‘wow’ throw, and it looks easy for him,” Shaw said of Rosen. “He splits defenders with the ball, he throws the ball over a [defensive back’s] head, he laces the ball in the back corner of the end zone. The throws other guys wouldn’t even attempt, he makes them and he makes them look easy. Sam will throw one time from the pocket and kill you, and he’ll get outside of the pocket, and makes huge plays with his legs and his arms.”

That either means (a) they whispered the entire time he was there, or (b) were able to get him in and out without anybody realizing it for at least a week.

The message appeared to be both an encouragement and a warning to Dez. Yes, it’s good to have passion. No, passion alone isn’t enough.

Ultimately, the passion wasn’t enough to keep Dez in Dallas. It’s a possibility that he acknowledged near the end of the season.

Sh-t I don’t know, Bryant says in a clip of an interaction with reporters regarding whether he’ll be back. But if that came about, I’m still Dez Bryant. I’m still going over the top. If it’s there where I can grab it, I’m gonna grab it. It’s just who I am.

Before he can grab it during a game, someone needs to grab him from the open market. In the first 10 days of his first foray into free agency, it hasn’t happened. It likely will happen, if at all, at some point after the draft.
Elite Mens Ben Scrivens Jersey
Jerry Jones made it clear that Dez Bryant Womens Trevor Van Riemsdyk Jersey won’t be returning to Dallas. He also made it clear that the decision was his.

The Cowboys owner refuted the receiver’s claim that Garrett’s Guys played a part in his departure.

I don’t [have any feelings] at all. I just don’t because it was not the case, Jones said. Dez is a loved player on this team. Everybody had the right perspective in their respect for him. So that’s as I know it and the sentiment that that might imply was not a factor in my decision 鈥?at all.

Bryant has not found much interest on the open market, with even the Ravens now out of the market for his services. He would have found more interest earlier in free agency, but the Cowboys had no reason to move on earlier.
