Derek Carr thinks Jordy Nelson is rubbing off on other Raiders receivers

Jordy Nelson hasn’t played in a game for the Raiders yet, but a couple of months of practice has been enough for quarterback Derek Carr to understand why Aaron Rodgers was so fond of the wideout.

Carr said Nelson wants to do everything exactly how you want it done and that attention to detail has left Carr feeling like he knows why Aaron loved throwing him the ball. Carr is looking forward to doing the same and he’s also noticed the impact that Nelson is having on the rest of the receiving corps.

Mara knows that even though Justify is a heavy favorite, there are many factors which could complicate things.

Spence, who made 6.5 sacks over his first two seasons, already sees a difference in what he can do with a healthy shoulder.

I can do a lot more moves, he said. I can hold the edge a lot better — just a lot more power stuff.

While things will certainly change under new management, one thing that is set to remain the same is the team’s belief in building the offense around a two-fisted running game. The Titans signed Dion Lewis to go with Derrick Henry in the backfield and LaFleur said Tuesday that the team views them on the same level when it comes to putting together their offensive plan.

Until you get the pads on and really get going through preseason, I look at them both as 1A and 1B, LaFleur said, via the Tennessean. I feel confident in both of those guys. They both bring a little bit different qualities to what they do. But I think we’ve got two really good backs that we’re excited about.

Tyler Flowers Jersey cracks a 2-out double to left field on a 3-2 count to put Atlanta out in front of Los Angeles.

Charlie Culberson has been a little more of a surprise, although the Los Angeles Dodgers know all about his timely hitting.
Men's Adidas Dylan DeMelo Authentic Teal Green NHL Jersey: San Jose Sharks #74 USA Flag Fashion
Freeman and Culberson each had three hits, Flowers drove in three runs and the upstart Braves beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 on Saturday night.

Both of Culberson’s home runs with the Braves this year have been pinch-hit walk-off shots. He also had a memorable game-ending homer as Los Angeles clinched the NL West in 2016 in Vin Scully’s final broadcast at Dodger Stadium.

Max Muncy hit a solo home run to right field in the first inning for the Dodgers. It was Muncy’s 11th home run and second in two games. He also walked three times to raise his OPS to a team-leading .978.

It’s big-time. You never know what can happen and you get on base any way you can, Muncy said. Passed ball and you’re Womens Chris Harris Jr Jersey in scoring position or ball in the gap and you’re scoring. Anything can happen when you get a guy on base, and that’s kind of the whole point of the game.

It definitely took the wind out of me, Straily said. I felt myself kind of spinning around. I think first I was looking for the baseball down at my feet, but then I just started to really lose my breath so I just went to the ground.

Once we kind of figured out where I got hit, I knew I would be able to continue. It was just a matter of re-gathering myself and my focus and making sure everything was good.

An X-ray after the game revealed no break, according to Straily, who lasted 3 2/3 innings, allowed nine hits and four Tyson Chandler Youth Jersey runs.

Dietrich’s single scored Starlin Castro in the third to cut San Diego’s lead to 3-1. The Padres regained the three-run advantage on Galvis’ leadoff home run in the fourth.

Toronto optioned LHP Tim Mayza to Triple-A Buffalo to open a roster spot for RHP Preston Guilmet, who was claimed off waivers from St. Louis on Saturday. Guilmet will join the team Monday at Tampa Bay.

Schoop’s homer snapped an 0 for 18 slump.

Dolphins, cornerback Bobby McCain Jersey agree to contract extension

The Dolphins and cornerback Bobby McCain have agreed to a four-year, $27 million contract extension, according to a report from ESPN.
Youth Replica Majestic Joaquin Benoit Grey Road Jersey - #53 MLB Washington Nationals Cool Base
McCain will now be the highest paid nickel corner in the league. The team announced the deal Friday.

Dolphins have signed Bobby McCain to a 4-year extension worth $27 million, including $13 million guaranteed, per source. McCain now becomes NFL’s highest paid nickel back.

The Cardinals seem to be the clearest case of using the reliever shuttle. The luckiest travelers have been John Brebbia (three options) and poor Mike Mayers (six options). Despite all the shuffling, only the Indians and Marlins have fewer relief WAR so far this season than St. Louis. By the way, Mayers’ total of six times being optioned out is the most in the majors, one ahead of both Brock Stewart of the Dodgers and Eduardo Paredes of the the Angels.

The Red Sox lead the majors in relief WAR and have done so with a very stable bullpen corps. Just two pitchers account for Boston’s six options: Bobby Poyner and Marcus Walden. Both were surprises on the Red Sox’s Opening Day roster, but clearly the fact that they both had options remaining played a big part in that happening.

The former NFL running back took to Twitter on Saturday to share an inspiring video about his recovery journey after undergoing brain surgery.

Doctors discovered a brain tumor in 2011 during a routine physical before Harrison could rejoin the Eagles. He later lost his motor skills and Womens Zach Laskey Jersey was expected to live his life as a quadriplegic, but eventually recovered.

For the rest of your life you’re going to have people telling you what you can and cannot do, Harrison said. Nobody can determine what you do but yourself, and what I’ve realized through my life is my attitude controls everything. I was told I would never walk again, I would live the rest of my life in a wheelchair. And I’m here standing in front of you today.

Harrison, 35, was selected by the Browns in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He was traded to the Eagles in 2010 and later Authentic James Neal Jersey signed with the Lions in 2011, though he was traded back to Philadelphia.

Nomar Mazara had a two-run double in the third as Verlander’s major league-leading ERA rose to 1.45.

Dolphins WR Leonte Carroo Jersey needs surgery; is ex-Rutgers star about to lose his job?

Former Rutgers wide receiver Leonte Carroo needs surgery to clean up loose bodies in his knee and will miss the Miami Dolphins’ minicamp next week, according to the Miami Herald.
(Detroit Lions Nevin Lawson Limited Nike Men's Blue Jersey) NFL Alternate #24 Vapor Untouchable
Carroo is expected to return for training camp, which is a good thing, because he is not guaranteed to have a spot on the 53-man roster this season.

Carroo has underwhelmed with the Dolphins, who traded up into the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft to select the receiver.

Carroo has played 28 games during his two-year NFL career (14 games Womens Pat Lafontaine Jersey in each of the last two seasons).

But he’s only started two games, and both of those came in 2016, with the bulk of Carroo’s playing time in the NFL coming on special teams.

How the Cavaliers can win: James being spectacular is a prerequisite, and Cleveland needs to bring the same defensive effort that carried the Cavs in the Game 7 win at Boston. From there, Cleveland needs to do what Houston did against Golden State force turnovers and attack the offensive glass.

How the Warriors can win: Take care of the basketball. Do that, and they will be fine. Don’t do that, and they’re asking for trouble.

Judge has quietly hit.292 with 15 home runs, tied for sixth-most in the AL, and a 1.008 OPS.

He’s easily supplanted shortstop Didi Gregorius as team MVP. Gregorius has cooled off big-time since his scorching April earned him AL Player of the Month honors.

He’s been great, manager Aaron Boone said of Judge before the Yankees’ game against the Orioles at Camden Yards on Thursday night.

He really has been so consistent for Yoenis Cespedes Jersey us. I feel like the at-bat quality for him, all the things we talk about it seems like with you guys everyday, grinding out at-bats, he just makes it so hard on the pitcher, you can see the pitcher really have to work so hard and pitch carefully to him.

Mesoraco has done a good job of pitch-calling for starters Syndergaard, Wheeler, Jacob deGrom, and Steven Matz, and reliever Hansel Robles, but they’ve all been on the disabled list at some point this year.

Brandon Marshall joins the Seahawks

In 12 NFL seasons, Brandon Marshall has never been to the playoffs.

Now, he’s joining a team that would conceivably give him a chance.

Two games later, Perez broke his leg. All that progress was gone in an instant. Perez missed the rest of that season and all of spring practice. Southwestern brought in a transfer quarterback from Florida International — a Division I player who had won California Player of the Year in high school — to replace Perez.

You don’t realize how much you need your legs until you don’t have one, until you’re handicapped a little bit, Perez says now, in a light tone before getting a little more serious.

Elissa Ennis testified last week that she lied to the police when she accused Foster of attacking her in February. She said she wanted retribution after Foster tried to end their relationship, saying she was angry and I wanted to end him. She testified that Foster never hit her.

Foster was arrested after Ennis told police he dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of their house, and punched her in the head eight to 10 times in February.

Mike Martz, a San Diego native, will coach the San Diego team. He served as offensive coordinator the Super Bowl XXXIV champion Rams in 1999, and as head coach Martz took the Rams to Super Bowl XXXVI. (Maybe Kurt Warner can come out of retirement to play for Martz, or at least openly muse about the possibility before claiming it’s a #slownewsday when people react.)

The Chargers played in San Diego from 1961 through 2016, moving to L.A. last year. The AAF is due to begin playing the Sunday after Super Bowl LIII.

Prosecutors had continued to pursue the case despite Ennis’ recantation. The prosecution said her testimony at last week’s hearing couldn’t be trusted given inconsistencies throughout.

Ennis testified that Foster broke up with her after she got into a fight with another woman during a road rage incident in San Francisco. She said her injuries resulted from that fight. A 22-second video clip of the fight was presented as evidence in the case.

Tom Telesco: Philip Rivers Jersey vote for Antonio Gates noted and accounted for

Game Youth Kevin Kiermaier Jersey Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said this week that bringing back tight end Antonio Gates would get my vote as part of the team’s plan to move forward without Hunter Henry after Henry tore his ACL during a recent practice.
Fanatics Branded Joonas Donskoi Breakaway Men's Jersey - NHL San Jose Sharks #27 White Away
Elite Kids Khalil Mack Jersey The Chargers said earlier this offseason that they’re moving on without their longtime star, although that was before Henry’s injury. During a chat with fans on the team’s website on Friday, General Manager Tom Telesco said they heard what Rivers had to say but that there’s been no change in plans at this point.

It’s the team’s biggest need both now and in the future with Ezekiel Ansah in the final year of his deal and Kerry Hyder an unknown coming off an Achilles injury. Detroit has been unable to sack quarterbacks with regularity over the past two seasons and is in need of defensive playmakers. The team does have other needs, but none are larger than on the defensive line, where a pass-rusher (or two) and an interior defender (or two) are possible picks the first two days. — Michael Rothstein

I don’t [think so], man, cause I get up from the bed Ben Bishop USA Jersey sometimes in the morning, I’m just like, I shuffle across the ground cause I can’t bend my ankles, Johnson said. That was my problem when I played, just ankle’s always stuck or swelled up, I can’t flex them. If you can’t flex your ankles then you’re just running flat-footed all the time.

Johnson said he’s otherwise healthy and feels no effects from concussions, and he said he wouldn’t stop his sons from playing football. But as for him, he’s done.

The Golden Knights’ biggest free-agent signing was one of their biggest whiffs: The 30-year-old forward grew tired of playing in the AHL, made his displeasure known publicly and then retired to return home to play in Russia. McPhee later said that, symbolically, standing up to a player with a large contract had a positive impact, which is more than you can say Shipachyov did on the ice.

After heavily flirting with the Senators over a potential Erik Karlsson trade, McPhee took the plunge with the Red Wings for the 27-year-old scoring winger.

There’s no other quarterback in the NFL quite like Cam Newton Jersey

He is a fullback with a howitzer. His athleticism and arm strength are as impressive as that of any quarterback we’ve seen in the last 25 years.
Patrick Kerney Men's Nike Black 2016 Salute to Service Limited NFL Jersey - Seattle Seahawks #97 Jerseys
However, Newton has completed 60 percent of his pass attempts just twice in seven seasons. He hasn’t hit that benchmark since 2013.

New Panthers OC Norv Turner told’s David Newton (no relation) that improvement in that regard is an important step in Cam’s evolution from zone-read quarterback to a more prototypical passer.

I see Cam as a guy that can be in the mid- to high-60s in the completion percentage, Turner said. We’re working hard in terms of scheming and getting the ball out quick. We want a good mix of dropback, play action.

However, Tom Brady is also 40 years old. Before the 2018 season begins, Authentic Keyshawn Johnson Jersey he’ll celebrate another birthday.

There’s been no indication that Brady’s level of play has fallen off, but we’ve reached the point in the saga of Tom Terrific where that drop could happen at any time.

ESPN lost Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden to the Oakland Raiders, who is being replaced by former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten.

The best guess here is that the Steelers are going to bring back their Batman jerseys, and just so there’s no confusion, we’re not talking about the uniform that the Gotham Rogues wore while playing at Heinz Field in The Dark Knight Rises.

The future Hall of Fame quarterback declined offers to be the lead analyst for Fox’s Thursday Night Football and ESPN’s Monday Night Football, claiming he wasn’t ready to get in the broadcast booth.

I don’t want to be a critic at this point, Manning said, via the Restaurant Business Magazine, before joking, I still do too many commercials.

But his quarterback skills alone looked fine to Harbaugh, albeit still in need of refinement.

The thing I was really impressed with 鈥?I thought he was accurate, he said. You read the reports and stuff like that, but he’s a naturally talented thrower, he’s got natural arm talent. And that’s something people were questioning, so seeing him out here throwing the ball naturally, very accurately, I think that’s a real plus.
Game Mens Kailer Yamamoto Jersey
Harbaugh was just as impressed with the intangibles he saw.

Players responded to Trump with large-scale protests before the Sunday games in Week 3. That Monday, Jones led Cowboys players and coaches in kneeling prior to the anthem’s playing at a game in Arizona. Cowboys personnel then stood for the anthem, acceding to Jones’ wishes.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic Kids Jersey The number of protesting players had decreased significantly leaguewide by the end of the 2017 season.

The Journal reported that Jones declined to comment for its story and that representatives of McNair did not respond to requests for comment.

An NFL spokesman told the Journal, We continue to abide by the confidentiality provision of the Brendan Leipsic Jersey [collective bargaining agreement] and will not comment on the grievance.

Johnny Manziel mostly a spectator at first Tiger-Cats practice

Johnny Manziel’s first practice with his new team wasn’t a thrilling one.

The former NFL quarterback signed a two-year contract with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL on Saturday but was generally a spectator for the start of training camp the next day.

Despite mostly kneeling or standing on the sideline, Tiger-Cats coach June Jones said there’s no reason for concern.

“But I think it gives you the versatility and offensive weapons to be able to attack coverages more intensely than it would just running a fixed route. I know it’s going to take some time, but now I see it more so, and my expectations are tempered.”

The 2018 CFL preseason begins May 27, with Hamilton playing its first game June 1. The Tiger-Cats kick off the regular season June 16 at Calgary.

Frazier started 13 games at the University of Missouri last year and was named second-team All-SEC. He recorded 40 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks in his final college season.

The Browns have Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah at the top of the depth chart at defensive end. Chris Smith, Carl Nassib and 2018 third-rounder Chad Thomas round out the group in Cleveland.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr stuck by his decision not to call a timeout as soon as his team secured possession.

“Well, I wanted the timeout,” Kerr said. “Draymond was trying to call one around 4 seconds, once he got trapped. And at that point the officials weren’t looking, and they’re not going to look down at our bench. So I saw Draymond trying to call it and I was hoping they’d give it to us, but we didn’t get it.

“But I’m always a proponent of pushing the ball off of a miss rather than taking a timeout, letting the defense get set up. So, I thought we’d get a better shot in transition. That’s why I let them play.”cardinals_017

When Kevin Durant moved from Oklahoma City to the Bay Area, he didn’t just do it to win a title — he did it to reap the benefits of the technology investment capital of the world. Less than two years later, Durant has gone from holding the most endorsements in the NBA (at one time more than 10) to owning one of the most wide-ranging investment portfolios in the league.

DURANT: I have mentors like Ron Conway [early-stage Google and PayPal investor] and Ben Horowitz [co-founder of Silicon Valley venture capital fund Andreessen Horowitz] and good friendships with guys like Chris Lyons [chief of staff for Andreessen Horowitz]. I mean, you just go to dinner with these guys, hang out with them. You start to meet these types of people at games. It’s a little easier being here than saying, Let’s meet up when I come in from Oklahoma.

Houston held on for a 95-92 win in Game Dallas Keuchel Authentic Jersey 4 on Tuesday to even the series at 2-2 heading into Game 5.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson is also listed as questionable after straining his left knee Tuesday night. But Kerr said that Thompson was moving around really well on Wednesday and that he thought he’d be fine.

Now we’ve got to fight and really understand that this is a true playoff-type experience, Curry said.

Golden State got the ball with 1:27 to play down 94-91 and Thompson and Curry each missed contested 3-pointers.

The Warriors got another chance with 42.5 seconds left following Houston’s shot-clock violation. Curry missed a driving layup and Draymond Green pulled down the offensive rebound and was fouled by Paul, but Green converted only one free throw.

Authentic Youth Sergei Fedorov Jersey I thought this is the highest level we’ve ever played defensively, without a doubt, Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said, because we’re talking about the best offensive team ever.

The Rockets went ahead 85-84 with 6:03 remaining on Trevor Ariza’s 3-pointer from the baseline after a beautiful bounce pass from the opposite corner by Paul.
