Darius Slay, Xavier Rhodes, Aqib Talib Jersey join Richard Sherman for workouts

Aqib Talib turned down a chance to join the 49ers in a trade this offseason, but he’s working out with a couple of the team’s cornerbacks this week.

Richard Sherman posted a video from a Lance Stephenson Jersey workout session that included fellow Niner Ahkello Witherspoon, Talib, Lions cornerback Darius Slay and Vikings corner Xavier Rhodes on Tuesday. The group is working out with trainer Rischad Whitfield and Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that Cardinals corner Patrick Peterson is expected to join the group later this week.

all over the place. Second to the quarterback, he has to learn more than anybody. A quarterback obviously has to learn the most, but [Hooper] is involved in everything.

In that context, it’s easy to understand why it could take time for Hooper to understand the complexities and intricacies of the offense.

If the tight end is truly only second to the quarterback in terms of involvement in the Falcons’ offense, perhaps that explains why Hooper values his time with Ryan so greatly. With another offseason of work with an NFL MVP under his belt, Hooper seems to understand his role better than he ever has.

Turbin apologized on Twitter for making a mistake.

In two seasons in Indianapolis, Turbin has 452 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns. He has 2,029 yards and 12 touchdowns in his six-year career.

There are a lot of unknowns when it comes to the linebacker Ronnie Stanley Jersey corps depth, but I liked what I saw out there from that group. The Falcons’ starters – Deion Jones, De’Vondre Campbell and Duke Riley – are among the best in the league. But the rookies definitely caught my eye during OTAs and minicamp, including Foyesade Oluokun, Richard Jarvis, Emmanuel Ellerbee, Emmanuel Smith and Anthony Winbush – especially the two Ivy Leaguers, Oluokun (Yale) and Jarvis (Brown). I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of those guys make a strong case for playing time once the season rolls around. But let’s just put it out there: we won’t truly know what the Falcons have here until the pads come one. Can’t wait.

Case Keenum Jersey gives an incredible breakdown of the Minneapolis Miracle

In January, Case Keenum was part of one of the great plays in NFL history when he completed the Minneapolis Miracle, the touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs on the last play of the Vikings’ playoff win over the Saints. Now Keenum is the Broncos’ quarterback, and he gave fans in Denver a fantastic breakdown of the play, both from an Xs and Kenta Maeda Youth Jersey Os perspective, and from a human perspective.
Youth Michal Neuvirth Authentic Orange Adidas Jersey: NHL Philadelphia Flyers #30 USA Flag Fashion
The offensive line blocked their tails off. In these situations, two-minute, these defensive ends… they know it’s a pass so they’re literally in a track stance and they’re just rushing as fast as it can. So it started there. They were incredible, Keenum said of his offensive linemen.

Keenum then went through his progressions and explained that he saw three other options before deciding to throw to Diggs.

The Cardinals wrapped up their draft class by picking Cincinnati tackle Korey Cunningham in the seventh round. The 6-foot-6, 311-pounder started the final two years of his college career for the Bearcats.

Cunningham said he is comfortable at either tackle spot and can play guard if needed. He was beginning to wonder if any team would draft him, since the Cardinals held the third-to-last selection of the last round, and bided his time by playing with his four dogs in the backyard.

And one of them just had puppies, Cunningham said.

Cunningham fielded calls from at least eight or nine teams interested in signing him as a free agent until the Cardinals swooped in.

It’s a prayer Marreese Speights Jersey answered, Cunningham said.

Browns DC Gregg Williams Jersey: Denzel Ward earned ‘acceptance’ of veterans faster than most

Denzel Ward has been an NFL player for less than two months, but he has already impressed his Browns teammates so much that they’re lobbying their coach to promote him.
Youth Roberto Osuna Authentic Scarlet Majestic Jersey: MLB Toronto Blue Jays #54 Alternate Cool Base
I don’t anoint anybody. Both he and Myles got the acceptance of everyone faster than most rookies have had. More on the NFL 2018 NFL Over-Under Win Totals: Browns poised to be an AFC wild-card contender So, this marks the second straight offseason that a Browns defensive rookie taken in the first round has been impressive immediately. Last year, it was No.1 pick Myles Garrett, who Williams mentioned above. This year, it’s the No. 4 overall pick, Ward. Both he and Myles I’ll have to say this, I want to be honest with this –- have fit into the locker room faster than most rookies that I’ve had the chance to draft, Williams Mackensie Alexander Jersey said. I don’t move them up the depth chart without the understanding of how they’re fitting in with the other veterans that play on the field.

This guy is extremely smart, head coach Steve Wilks said, per Darren Urban of the team’s official site. I mean, his ability to see certain things from the defense, and pick it up quickly, and execute…. I don’t want to say this, but he has the mindset of a vet [with] the way he sees the game.

Wilks made sure to qualify his statement by adding Rosen is not playing like a vet, but the rookie’s approach and understanding of the game Kyle Clifford Jersey are advanced for a 21-year-old signal-caller after playing three years under former NFL coach Jim Mora. 

As a result, Rosen could take over the offense at any moment. His mindset coupled with Bradford’s injury history and Glennon’s inefficiency could quickly create a new organizational direction. 

I talked about it from day one—the best 11 are going to play, Wilks said. Sam is the starter, and when he’s healthy, he’s great. But everybody is competing to be out there on the field. Competition is a great thing. It makes us all better.

Zach takes care of his body so well, it’s unbelievable.

ZACH: We have a book that keeps a tally of wins. There are two sides of the book; one’s labeled Z and one’s J, and it’s just a running tally of victories, because Julie is a known cheater. [laughs] She exaggerates how many victories she has. So we had to create this book in order to hold each other accountable. I still have to look over her shoulder to make sure she’s not giving herself two victories instead of one, or that she’s actually giving me a mark in the victory column.

JULIE: Unfortunately, Zach is winning right now. I won’t lie, he’s up. He used to be up by a pretty big margin, but I’ve been killing it in gin.

ZACH: The one place we’re never truly competing is while working out. It’s more encouragement or just holding each other accountable — little coaching points here and there — because we know how serious the other is while the other is working out.

ZACH: When I was younger, I initially hated football because they put me on the offensive line because I was the biggest kid. The weight limit was like 125 pounds, and I was 135 pounds, so I had to lose like 10 or 15 pounds in order to make weight. I’m 13 years old, having to go on a strict diet regimen. No one wants to be 13 and not able to eat their ice cream after dinner.

We had one chance offensively and we ran through a stop sign, which took away that one opportunity, Padres manager Andy Green said.

Melancon, who started the season on the DL with a right elbow flexor strain, pitched the ninth for his first save since June 20, 2017.

Bumgarner was winless in his six previous starts against the Padres. He was 0-4 with a 4.73 ERA during that stretch.

Padres: OF Wil Myers (left oblique strain) and Maton (right lat strain) were reinstated from the 10-day DL, and RHP Colin Rea (right shoulder strain) was activated from the 60-day DL. … OF Franchy Cordero (right elbow bone spur) was transferred to the 60-day DL and RHP Phil Hughes (right rhomboid strain) was placed on the 10-day DL. … OF Franmil Reyes was optioned to Triple-A El Paso. … RHP Bryan Mitchell (right elbow impingement) had an MRI on Wednesday that showed inflammation in the affected area but no ligament damage, Green said. Mitchell is expected to start throwing in four or five days.

Jake Arrieta Jersey goes off on Phillies after ‘horses— series’

Jake Arrieta was less than pleased with his team this weekend as the Phillies were swept by the Giants in what Womens Rhett Ellison Jersey the former Cubs starter called a horse— series.
Curley Culp Women's Limited Olive/USA Flag Jersey: Nike NFL Tennessee Titans 2017 Salute to Service #78
The Phillies scored just one run in three games and it was Arrieta who accounted for it with a solo home run Sunday. He also allowed five runs in six innings.

Philadelphia struck out 29 times in the series and amassed a total of 15 hits in 27 innings.

However, it was the way the team played defense which drew Arrieta’s ire in particular.

I always had my grandfather, he always showed up, so I love him for that, but it’s a little different, Shepard said. It was rough early on, but you kind of get used to it. My mom had to play both roles, so my hat’s off to her for that.

Shepard became a husband in March. He could become a father on Aug. 19, when Iman is due.

Nevertheless, the Giants are scheduled to be in Detroit for joint practices from Aug. 14-16, before the teams meet in a preseason game on Aug. 17.

I talked to coach about it a while ago, and he was like, ‘We’ll see if we can get you a day off or something,’ Shepard said with a smile. I don’t want to be away from the guys, but that type of stuff, you have to be there for that.

Shanahan put a positive spin on Garoppolo’s struggles.

I like to see Jimmy make mistakes, he said. I like seeing Kentrell Brice Womens Jersey him come in and work on it. I like seeing him correct what he messed up two days ago. He felt the mistake. He understood why it was wrong and then he wants to correct it himself. I want him to understand it. Sometimes when things don’t work out, you learn. You’ve got to know the whys and that’s what allows you to have continued success over time.

A few bad practices in June will not matter much when the games start in September. But the 49ers would surely prefer to see their highly paid franchise quarterback look sharp.

The Giants, under head coach Pat Shurmur, are refortified on offense, with most of the financial and draft resources earmarked to give Eli Manning more protection (Nate Solder) and more lethal weapons (Saquon Barkley). The only impact move on defense was the trade with the Rams to acquire inside linebacker Alec Ogletree, who will make the defensive calls and probably lead the team in tackles.

MLB trade rumors: Nationals checked in on Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto Jersey

The Nationals could be looking to upgrade their offense.
Nike Youth Tremaine Edmunds Limited Olive/Gold Jersey - Buffalo Bills NFL #49 2017 Salute to Service
Sunday at the Athletics-Royals game, one fan caught two foul balls on consecutive pitches … and he didn’t even need a glove.

Judge was far from polished as a baseball player in high school — Linden High School, relatively close to Sacramento — but the A’s couldn’t resist taking a guy with his size and raw power. The decision for Judge to play college ball at Fresno was clearly the right choice for his development ; the Yankees grabbed him in the first round of the 2013 draft and he’s well on his way to legend status in the pinstripes.

Worth noting a couple other outstanding players were picked in the 31st round of that 2010 draft; Kevin Kiermaier signed with the Rays after being chosen 941st, and the Red Sox picked Hunter Renfroe 953rd, though he didn’t sign.

The Cubs entered the game having won eight of nine, but cooled down offensively, finishing the game with just Authentic Leandro Barbosa Jersey four hits. They remain just a half game behind the Brewers with Milwaukee falling to the Phillies.

As for the Pirates, they are now Womens Kenny Britt Jersey 32-33 and mired in a terrible slump. In first place and nine games over.500 on May 17, the Bucs have lost 16 of 22 since to fall to fourth in the division.

Curtis Granderson led the Blue Jays to a 13-3 win over the Orioles by collecting four hits with two runs scored, a home run and six RBIs. It was Granderson’s first multi-hit game since May, and he raised his average to.237 with the explosive effort.

Seth Lugo pitched six scoreless innings, giving up only two hits and striking out eight, in the Mets’ series finale against the Yankees.

James Paxton improved to 6-1 with a 3.02 ERA by allowing three runs in seven innings with 10 strikeouts. The breakout Mariners star now has 111 strikeouts in just 89 1/3 innings this season.

Jenkins finished the press conference by holding up the YOU AREN’T LISTENING sign a fifth time after a reporter asked Who isn’t listening?

The Eagles were disinvited from the White House after President Donald Trump learned that a tiny contingent of players — possibly just two — planned to be at the celebration Tuesday. In February, Jenkins waited less than 24 hours after the team’s victory to tell CNN he didn’t plan on making the White House visit.

Trump accused Eagles players of disagreeing with his insistence that they proudly stand, hand on heart during the playing of the national anthem. But no Eagles players kneeled during the anthem during the 2017 season, and the reason Colin Kaepernick and other players kneeled was to protest racial inequality and police brutality.

Jenkins has made similar efforts to influence lawmakers, even spending three days on Capitol Hill in 2017 with three other NFL players to advocate for criminal justice reform. Jenkins made clear Wednesday that Trump disinviting the Eagles isn’t going to curb his fight, and he won’t let Trump misrepresent what they’re fighting for.

Shazier, who underwent spinal stabilization surgery on Dec. 6, 2017, opened by offering gratitude to numerous people for their unwavering support and providing updates on his rehabilitation process.

While the Steelers already placed Shazier on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, a move that ends his 2018 season, the linebacker made it clear he remains hopeful to continue playing.

My dream is to come back and play football again, Shazier told reporters. I’ve been working my tail off every single day, so I have that in the back of my mind every single time I go to rehab. I just try to stay positive every day, so I’m just trying to do everything I can to get back.

Shazier pointed out there isn’t a hard medical timetable on his recovery process and he is taking it one day at a time, but he has received encouragement.

They feel like I’m doing a lot better than they expected, he said.

Lamar Jackson Jersey signs rookie contract with Ravens

Lamar Jackson is officially a Baltimore Raven.
Youth Jonny Brodzinski Authentic Camo Adidas Jersey: NHL Los Angeles Kings #17 Veterans Day Practice
With Joe Flacco remaining the starting quarterback, the Ravens have the luxury of bringing Jackson along slowly this summer and into the fall. If Baltimore’s offense remains an inefficient, frustrating operation as it has the past few years, however, the calls for Jackson to take over the gig will become loud in Mitchell Trubisky Jersey the Charm City.

Jackson’s signing leaves tight end Hayden Hurst, the No. 25 overall pick, as the only Ravens draftee not under contract.

Then came a setback last Saturday in Baltimore when the second-year pitcher played catch. Montgomery didn’t feel right and stopped throwing, and that led to another MRI on Monday morning.

This one revealed a much worse diagnoses:

Montgomery has tear in his ulnar collateral ligament and needs Tommy John surgery, and a quick decision was made to go through with the procedure at New Mike Napoli Jersey York-Presbyterian Hospital on Thursday.

Obviously, Montgomery’s season is over and he might not be back until late 2019 or even 2020, depending on how his long rehab goes.

I’m obviously disappointed for Monty, but at least he gets some answers now and know he’ll be in really good hands, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday before his club played the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. Get through the surgery and start that rehab process.

And it’s no secret that all pitchers, especially those with a history of a high volume of work combined with the ability to throw blistering fastballs, present some level of risk. Ohtani is an unusual case because of what he brings in terms of his skill set at the plate as well as on the mound. But star pitchers who can grow with an organization are sought after more than ever, even if damage to their throwing elbow already has occurred or if there is a hint that it may be imminent.

Ex-MLB star Lenny Dykstra Jersey says Uber driver threatened, kidnapped him

Lenny Dykstra says an Uber driver kidnapped him last month in New Jersey in an incident that led to criminal charges against the former baseball star.
Youth Nike Houston Texans #98 D.J. Reader Limited Olive/Camo 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
Dykstra said Friday in New York that the driver threatened him after Dykstra asked to change the trip’s destination.

Linden Police charged Dykstra with making terroristic threats and drug offenses. Police found cocaine, MDMA and marijuana among Dykstra’s belongings.

Police said the Uber driver told them Dykstra held a gun to his head. No weapon was found.

Dykstra claims he called police from the car. The driver said he called police shortly before stopping and Mike Smith Jersey running out of the car.

Smorol is referring to the Fresno Grizzlies, who in 2015 saluted Fresno’s annual Taco Truck Throwdown by rebranding themselves for one game as the Fresno Tacos, complete with taco-themed uniforms. It was a huge hit, and it ignited a trend of minor league teams doing one-game rebrandings based on locals foods the Lehigh Valley Cheesesteaks, the Jersey Shore Pork Rolls, the Coney Island Franks, and so on.

Shortstop Carlos Correa was out of the lineup for a second straight day because of soreness in his right side. Correa said Thursday an MRI didn’t show anything abnormal.

Martin praised Happ for being fearless on the mound.

He just believes that he can get anybody out and just attacks the zone, Martin said.

The only run Happ surrendered was unearned, with Danny Valencia scoring on second baseman Devon Travis’ throwing error in the second inning.

Two relievers completed the five-hitter. Seunghwan Oh got two outs in the eighth and Ryan Tepera recorded the final four outs for his third save in six opportunities.

Baltimore has been held Robert Alford Womens Jersey to one or zero runs a major league-worst 18 times this season, one more than Miami. The Orioles have scored eight runs in their past four games.

We just haven’t done much offensively, manager Buck Showalter said. It’s people that have done it in the past. We’re just not doing it now.

Lions hope Kerryon Johnson Jersey breaks recent run of RB disappointments

It’s OK to be skeptical. If you’re a Detroit Lions fan, it’s almost expected given how many times you’ve been burned before.

There was Jahvid Best, and Jim Schwartz’s infatuation with his YouTube videos. There was Mikel Leshoure, and that great week of training camp he had (until the hype shriveled up along with his Achilles tendon). Three years ago, it was Ameer Abdullah and then defensive coordinator Teryl Austin stoking the fire with a passing comment that tackling Abdullah was like grasping at air.

He’s a guy that’s a three-down player,running backs coach David Walker said this week. (At Auburn he) showed he can play on first, second and third down. He showed he can play in all situations, which was important for us. Very productive in a very good league. So you see the physical qualities, the flexibility in terms of how you can use a guy like that, and then you have a chance to meet him and see how smart and driven he is. He’s kind of the type of player that fits with our program because he’s smart, he showed he’s productive and then he has flexibility in terms of first, second, third downs.

Last year’s version of the summit was held in Palo Alto, California. This time around, special guests include the Raiders ‘ Khalil Mack and the Falcons ‘ Vic Beasley, according to the Denver Post. It’s a great space where we can talk about knowledge and share knowledge,Miller said. It’s the only place where you can do that and where you can get Khalil Mack and Vic Beasley in the same spot, other than the Pro Bowl, and talk about Delanie Walker Jersey pass rush and what it takes to be a great pass rusher from a young’s guy point of view.Mack and Miller rank second and third, respectively, in total sacks over the last three seasons.

Beasley ranks 17th. It’s difficult to envision a better group of players for a young pass-rusher to learn from. Miller hopes that one of the young pupils picking up tips of the trade from his Summit group will be new teammate Bradley Chubb. He just has to hope Chubb is able to attend, but it may conflict with the rookie’s offseason workouts with coaches.

He reminds me of myself, Miller said of Chubb. It’s cool to pay it Adrian Wilson Jersey forward and tell him some of the same stuff that DeMarcus (Ware) and Elvis (Dumervil) told me.Ware, meanwhile, may also get to instruct Chubb at some point prior to next season. The Broncos are reportedly bringing him in as a pass-rush consultant during camp.
