Sam Beal runs 4.47 with all 32 teams at his Pro Day

Sam Beal went into his Thon Maker Jersey Pro Day as one of the top prospects in the supplemental draft in years. That was confirmed by the presence of all 32 teams at Western Michigan on Thursday.

The cornerback did nothing to hurt his draft stock during his workout either.

According to Gil Brandt of, Beal measured 6-0 7/8 and weighed 178 pounds, down from the 187 he weighed in the spring, and ran 40-yard dash times of 4.47 and 4.55.

Beal had a 37-inch vertical jump, a Sheldon Richardson Authentic Jersey 10-foot, 6-inch broad jump, a 4.09 short shuttle and a 7.11 three-cone drill.

He’s done a great job, he really has, Ryan said. Your third year is always a time when you start to get comfortable within your routine, within the offense. I think continuity within the offense is huge. He’s got a clear understanding of what is expected of him, of how we’re going to use him. I think all of those things make you more confident and comfortable as a player. He’s looked very good in the spring. I think he’s had really good practices and OTAs, he’s looked good in the individual periods. I’ve been impressed with Austin this offseason.

The 30-year-old Tebow is hitting .261 for the Double-A affiliate Binghamton Rumble Ponies (which is a way worse name than his first pro team, the Denver Broncos).

The former quarterback could end up getting called up at some point, if only because the Mets are bad and could use some help selling tickets. Tebow has been a steady draw in the minors as a curiosity, so who’s to say that might not earn him a ticket to the show.

I want to thank all those that have supported me and will continue to support me in my personal and professional endeavors.

Turbin, 28, spent most of the offseason program running with the first-team offense. He has 105 touches in 21 games over the past two seasons in Indianapolis.

The Colts will have to turn to Marlon Mack and draft picks Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins. Mack underwent offseason shoulder surgery but is expected to return during training camp.

Bright Ugwoegbu joins supplemental draft class

The pool of potential supplemental draft picks has grown by 33 percent.
Youth Chipper Jones Replica Green Majestic Jersey: MLB Atlanta Braves #10 Salute to Service
The three-man class became four on Monday, with Lance Kendricks Youth Jersey the addition of Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu.

He joins a trio of defensive backs — Adonis Alexander of Virginia Tech, Sam Beal of Western Michigan, and Brandon Bryant of Mississippi State — as the four players eligible for the July 11 supplemental draft.

All we can say is we’re glad where they were when we picked, so we feel very good about it, said Lamoriello. You never know when it comes to drafts, everybody has a little different focus, but these were two players we had very high.

It’s a dream come true. To be in New York, that city’s awesome and the organization is a powerhouse organization throughout the years. I couldn’t be more happy, said Wahlstrom, who spent the last two seasons with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program.

We’ll see, Mitchell said, via the Boston Herald.

Mitchell didn’t elaborate about his condition, so we’ll likely have to wait a few weeks to see if Mitchell is ready to take on a fuller workload. With Julian Edelman facing a four-game suspension, that would be a welcome development for the receiving corps in New England.

The American Airlines Center DJ — Michael Gruber — spun an impeccable playlist during Friday night and Saturday afternoon. From the Beastie Boys to Weezer to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Sublime to Radiohead, the soundtrack to the weekend was flawless.

One of the most exciting moments of the NHL draft is when Commissioner Gary Bettman steps to the podium and says, We have a trade to announce! Those words were uttered many times this weekend, but majority of the moves were teams swapping selections. Only two big trades that included players went down this weekend, which is kind of disappointing considering all of the speculation as the hockey world decended on Matt Duffy Jersey Dallas. Maybe now that all of the teams are shifting their focus to free agency, some moves will happen this week before the market opens July 1.

Only the Browns retain a HC that has won 1 game in the last TWO seasons!

Year after year, decade after decade, the Browns are the definition of pure incompetence.
Limited Youth Lorenzo Alexander Olive/Gold Jersey: NFL Nike Buffalo Bills #57 2017 Salute to Service
Cleveland fans – remember, TT is an 8 YEAR veteran – don’t keep saying he’s getting better – he has reached his peak. He was a 6th round pick, he’s a very good backup and a great teammate. He will keep you respectable, but he won’t get you far.

Hokie grad here, and tyrods always been a class act. He’ll probably never be Womens Tyrone Hill Jersey an elite qb you build your franchise around, but he can certainly play. He got the Bill’s to the playoffs and I’d argue the cast and system there wasn’t suited to his strengths.

He has more talent to work with in Cleveland then he ever did in Buffalo. He’s never gonna be a superstar in the league but he’s good enough to get some wins and be dangerous on a team like Cleveland has assembled.

Jeff Garcia, baby, he’s our baby! He’s it, baby, one enthusiastic Eagles fan memorably said after the team’s playoff win.

Garcia left in free agency so McNabb returned to his starting job without much drama in 2007. When he did, he looked no worse for the wear, and finished the year with numbers right around his career average.

The recovery from Rivers is so incredible that it forces you to question how bad his knee really was. The legend is that the Chargers quarterback played the 2007 AFC Championship with a torn ACL that he suffered in a Authentic Jose Altuve Jersey win against the Colts a week earlier.

Rivers underwent a minor surgery a week before the game, and then had a second surgery later that month to repair the ACL following the loss. About three months later, he was back at practice.

Valbuena hits 2 HRs, Angels power past Blue Jays 8-5

Kole Calhoun, Luis Valbuena and the Los Angeles Angels seem to be hitting their way out of a long funk.

Valbuena homered twice, Calhoun connected for the second consecutive game and the Angels defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 8-5 on Thursday night.

He has the same belief now, and is willing to trade any barren stretches for when Valbuena gets in a groove.

If you look at Luis’ track record, he gets real hot and at times he gets cold, Scioscia said. There’s no doubt there is more OPS in his game, especially against right-handed pitching. Once he finds it, he usually swings the bat like he did the second half of last year, and that’s something we’re going to need.

Even the Angels’ erratic bullpen did its part, as Noe Ramirez (3-3) retired all eight batters he faced — striking out four — after relieving John Lamb in the fourth. Justin Anderson got his third save.

Tallahassee police investigated the allegations and were widely criticized for sitting on the report and not collecting certain evidence until a media request in fall 2013 prompted the department to turn the case over to prosecutors, who determined they did not have enough evidence to charge the then-FSU quarterback. Winston was not suspended from the school or disciplined by the football team for the incident. Winston was disciplined over a separate incident, in September 2014, for standing on a table inside the university’s student union and shouting a sexually explicit internet meme.

Florida State also investigated Darby and Casher. Casher admitted to police that he took a video recording of the encounter between Winston and the woman but had deleted it from his phone. The university’s investigation found Casher responsible for two code-of-conduct violations but did not find Darby responsible.

Kinsman told her story and revealed her identity in The Hunting Ground, a 2015 documentary about campus sexual assault, which also had information about another sexual assault allegation against Winston that did not result in criminal charges. The female Uber driver, Kate, decided to come forward with her story in part after watching the documentary, sources told ESPN.

Giants minicamp ends in scuffle; Nate Solder tweaks knee

The Giants’ final minicamp practice ended with tensions running high as a helmet-swinging scuffle broke out between defensive tackle Damon Harrison and guard Will Hernandez, B.J. Goodson Jersey resulting in left tackle Nate Solder tweaking his knee.
Youth Buffalo Sabres #67 Benoit Pouliot Reebok White Away Authentic NHL Jersey
Dennis Green’s impact on the Minnesota Vikings, and really the entire NFL, is still felt to this day, owner Mark Wilf said, via the team’s official website. In addition to being widely regarded as one of the NFL’s top coaches, Denny was also known as a great mentor and leader by all who had the fortune of being in his presence. We’re extremely honored to forever memorialize Denny and his family in the Vikings Ring of Honor and we’re looking forward to the induction in September.

Green, who coached the team until January 2002, will become the 24th member of the team’s Ring of Honor, joining Fran Tarkenton, Alan Page, Jim Finks, Bud Grant, Paul Krause, Fred Zamberletti, Jim Marshall, Ron Yary, Korey Stringer, Mick Tingelhoff, Carl Eller, Cris Carter, Bill Brown, Jerry Burns, Randall McDaniel, Chuck Foreman, John Randle, Scott Studwell, Chris Doleman, Matt Blair, Joey Browner, Ahmad Rashad, and Randy Moss.

The Vikings will make the addition of Green to the Ring of Honor official during halftime of the September 23 game against the Bills.

Solder echoed that sentiment as he continued to mesh with an overhauled offensive line, adding that the work doesn’t stop just because the Brandon Pirri Jersey practices do for now.

If you take a step back in the next five weeks and you’re not continuing to push and get better and increase your conditioning and get mentally prepared for the upcoming season, you’re going to be behind, Solder said.

Defensive end Myles Garrett offered his assessment of Coleman this week as well.

He’s definitely a great run blocker and he’s coming along as a pass blocker as well, Garrett said, via Pat McManamon of I like going against him because he’s aggressive and he doesn’t stop. He’s always trying ot get after it whether it’s play 1 or play 40 in practice.

Terry Collins tirade video shows why MLB should showcase ‘human element’

The visuals were nothing new: a pitcher ejected from a game for throwing behind a batter, and his manager exploding in rage toward the umpires.
Vikings Official Jersey
The audio, on the other hand, was rather interesting: Mets manager Terry Collins, using the most colorful of language, berating the umpires for ejecting Noah Syndergaard after he threw behind the Dodgers’ Chase Utley in 2016 — perceived as retaliation for Utley’s hard slide in the playoffs the year before.

From Collins’ yelling to umpire Tom Hallion’s response, the whole thing was real and it was raw. It was also informative, entertaining and refreshing — and it’s exactly what MLB needs. Even though the audio was leaked, and later removed from YouTube by MLB, the response to the video was telling. Almost universally, the message from baseball fans was, we want more of this.

MLB’s guidelines for game audio, however, reveal a certain unfortunate disconnect between the league and the desires of its fans.

He was on pace for a career-high in walks when he went down with 28 in his first 60 games. He has never walked more than 32 times in a season.

The Rams parted with Quinn, Barwin and Ogletree, and with Mark Barron at inside linebacker as Darron Lee Authentic Jersey the only returning starter, there are no surefire replacements on the roster.

Based on situational snap counts last season, Samson Ebukam (fourth-rounder in 2017) and Matt Longacre (undrafted in 2015) are set to start outside now that rookie Ogbonnia Okoronkwo is coming off foot surgery. Ebukam is the better run-stopper and Longacre is the better pass-rusher, but neither has proved himself in coverage. Third in the mix is Morgan Fox, who is a little more Erik Karlsson Womens Jersey well-rounded but also is converting from defensive line. Compared to how strong they are elsewhere on defense, the Rams are weak, inexperienced and thin at linebacker.

Panthers LB Thomas Davis open to playing in 2019

After stating in January that 2018 would definitely be my last year, Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis did a little backtracking Thursday.
Majestic Bill Lee Replica Women's Jersey - MLB Boston Red Sox #37 Pink Cool Base Fashion
Davis told reporters he is very open on the possibility of extending his playing career into 2019, via the Panthers’ official website.

The four-game suspension he will serve to start the 2018 regular season appears to have a role in the veteran linebacker’s decision-making process.

Thursday marked the first time Davis addressed the media since the NFL in Paul O’Neill Authentic Jersey early April announced his suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Davis emphasized the circumstances surrounding his suspension were unintentional, but he didn’t duck accountability for his actions.

Ultimately, we’re responsible for what we put in our bodies as Briean Boddy-Calhoun Womens Jersey players and that’s something I have to know, Davis told reporters.

It took me some time to fall asleep processing everything that happened, Loaisiga said Saturday before the Yankees-Rays’ game. Getting to the big leagues, getting my first start, getting my first win… it took me a little bit to process a lot information.

Loaisiga had something else to process while he was meeting with reporters before Saturday’s game.

That’s when he was told that Rays manager Kevin Cash said that he looks like a young Mariano Rivera on the mound.

That’s a big compliment right there, Loaisiga said. Mariano was one of the best all-time in this sport. It’s humbling for (Cash) to say like that.

Cash first made the comparison to the Yankees great during Friday’s game in a comment to Rays bench coach Charlie Montoyo, then he repeated it during his post-game presser.

So what does Cash see from Loaisiga that reminds him of baseball’s all-time saves leader?

Gardner wants to play 2-3 more years

Gregorius’ power surge resembled his April form, when he hit 10 home runs in the opening month. His two on Tuesday were his first since May 23. He recorded his third two-home run game of the season, making him the first Yankee shortstop to ever accomplish that feat in a single season.

His first shot opened the scoring in the bottom of the second inning when he sat back on a 1-1 curveball and deposited it into the Yankees’ bullpen in right-center field.

Green, Betances and Aroldis Champman combined to pitch 3.1 innings out of the bullpen, where the three allowed a total of one hit and zero walks while striking out six.

Sabathia struck out Nationals centerfielder Michael Taylor for the second out of the fourth inning, giving him his 1,500th strikeout as a Yankee.

The punchout was Sabathia’s third and final of the game. Sabathia tossed the milestone ball to the dugout while receiving a standing ovation from the Yankee Stadium crowd.

On top of his 1,500 strikeouts with the Yankees, the veteran lefty had 1,393 with the Cleveland Indians and Milwaukee Brewers to give him 2,893 for his career.

All-Pro linebacker Sean Lee was among the teammates offering character statements, testifying that Gregory has earned another opportunity, Slater added.

The Cowboys ‘ 2015 second-round draft pick has been suspended three times, including last year’s season-long ban for violating the NFL’s Policy for Substances of Abuse.

In addition to undergoing counseling, the 25-year-old has spent more than six weeks in intensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Talking to people close to the situation, Slater explained, they tell me he’s passed a number of drug tests over the last couple of years. He’s also been able to maintain and he wants to rejoin this Cowboys organization, something that he has been incredible committed to.

If Goodell clears Gregory for a return in time for next month’s training camp, Dallas’ coaching staff will have to figure out how to utilize a talented but enigmatic pass rusher with one sack in 14 career NFL games.

Which Giants are playing on contract years in 2018?

Collins participated in some 7-on-7 passing drills during the second week of OTAs but has been a bystander during 11-on-11s. He was limited to individual drills Monday, and it is unlikely he will stretch his workload to include team drills next week during non-contact mandatory minicamp.

We all know Landon is the guy, Riley said. He has been nothing but positive energy in the room. If he sees somebody mess up, he’ll correct us. If he has a question because he hasn’t been practicing, he’ll ask us. It’s a brotherhood we are trying to keep.

Consider it an example by the two-time Pro Bowler of answering the call from the coaching staff to earn starting positions no matter your resume.

Don’t be lackadaisical, basically, as we were kind of last year (when) everybody was kind of set in Kevin Faulk Jersey stone, everybody knew who was going to be playing, Collins said. We ‘re looking for accountability and knowing what you’re supposed to do, how you’re supposed to do it and when you’re supposed to do it.

A two-time all-pro selection, Clark also helped lead the 49ers to Super Bowl titles. In one of the most iconic plays in NFL history, his stretching catch in the back of the end zone gave San Francisco a 28-27 win over the Cowboys for a berth in Super Bowl XVI. Their 26-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals marked the first Jordan Akins Jersey of five Super Bowl titles for the franchise from 1981-94.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement in part:

All of us in the NFL are saddened by the passing of Dwight Clark. Dwight made many memorable contributions on the field as a two-time Super Bowl champion and later as a member of the front office of the 49ers and Browns. He will forever live on in our memories for The Catch but also for his kind, gentle, courageous spirit.

Clark’s No. 87 jersey was retired by the 49ers in 1988. With 6,750 career receiving yards, he still trails only Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens in franchise history. 

He also served as the 49ers’ general manager in 1998 and subsequently held the same title for the Cleveland Browns for three seasons.

When Clark first revealed his diagnosis last March, he noted that he had concerns about whether his playing career had led to the illness.

Rookie QB progress reports: How the 13 drafted look so far

How have the five first-rounders looked at minicamps and OTAs? Which mid- to late-rounders look promising? NFL Nation reporters check in on all 13.
Nike NFL Dan Hampton Navy Blue Jersey Women's Game: #99 Chicago Bears Home
Over the coming days, coaches will be able to evaluate the players Authentic Peter Holland Jersey on their rosters in concert and competition with one another for the final time until the late-July/early-August days of training camp.

After Thursday, the NFL goes dark for about a month and a half. So if you’re into things like first-team rep tracking and live Twitter updates of 11-on-11 drills, this is the week for you. Watch it. Embrace it. Commit it to memory because it’s going to have to last you for a while.

Obviously, in the case of Shohei Ohtani, we’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop on a potential Tommy John surgery, which would necessitate a complete removal of his name from the rankings ledger. However, in most cases, the uncertainty regarding a player’s status is probably best ignored in the short-term.

But Cano’s experience outside second base is minimal. He has appeared in 1,995 career games at second and 48 at designated hitter, and he played one game at shortstop with New York in 2013. He has never played first base another potential spot for him in August and September at any point in his professional career.

Cano lost more than $11 million in salary when he went on the suspended list. Rather than add a second baseman to fill the void, the Mariners recently used the savings to acquire outfielder Denard Span and reliever Alex Colome in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays. Span’s arrival, coupled with Cano’s pending return after the All-Star break, could alter Dipoto’s approach at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline and allow him to concentrate more on pitching.

The one thing we do know is, if we remain as competitive in the standings as we are now and we think we will we will have a chance to make perhaps the biggest acquisition of Nick Van Exel Jersey anybody at the deadline in picking up Robinson Cano,” Dipoto said. Then we have to figure out how to balance all the pieces.
