The Jets worked out free agent fullback Derrick Coleman on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Coleman spent the 2017 season with Atlanta. He played 16 games, rushing for 8 yards on two carries and catching two passes for 20 yards.

He played 22 percent of the team’s offensive snaps and 63.4 percent of the special teams snaps.

Coleman, 27, originally signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He played four seasons for the Seahawks, appearing in 31 games with seven starts.

A group statement last week issued by the NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA players’ unions demanded a say on any proposed league-run betting enterprises, as such gambling could alter players’ privacy and publicity rights, the integrity of our games and the volatility of our business.

That was followed with, we cannot allow those who have lobbied the hardest for sports gambling to be the only ones controlling how it would be ushered into our businesses. The athletes must also have a seat at the table to ensure that players’ rights and the integrity of our games are protected.

The journeyman running back has spent time with the Giants, Lions, Cowboys, Steelers, Raiders, Patriots, and Texans.

He has played in 19 games in his career, with 23 carries for 74 yards.

The Packers have not drafted as well in the past few years, but that 2013 class had three Pro Bowl players and the Rookie of the Year with Lacy, who faded after his hot start. The 2014 class had two good ones with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Davante Adams in the first two rounds.

Giants didn’t waste any time before picking Saquon Barkley

With teams looking for quarterbacks on Thursday night, some thought the Giants might entertain trade offers for the No. 2 pick rather than using it themselves.
#7 Adidas Lanny McDonald Royal Blue NHL - Backer Toronto Maple Leafs T-Shirt
General Manager Dave Gettleman wasn’t in the mood for such conversations. Gettleman said that the only reason the team didn’t take running back Saquon Barkley immediately was a league rule forcing them to wait.

I have no thoughts about the timing of when we decided to move on, Jones said. For everyone concerned, that was as good a time as any from the end of the season.

Once this week’s draft passes and teams have a more clear idea of their rosters, Bryant can perhaps become the focus of a receiver-needy team again.

As for the Cowboys, they don’t plan to fill Bryant’s cleats immediately.

Limited Kids Babe Ruth Jersey I think we recognize that we’ve got a hole to fill with Dez, Jones said. We, actually, in general know right now that and have known that we probably won’t have what we would call a pure X receiver to take the place of Dez.

The Cowboys select 19th overall in this year’s draft.The long-held thought from experts has been the Browns would take Sam Darnold with the top pick. Increasingly, with the draft starting Thursday, it’s looking as if the experts have been wrong.

It doesn’t look like Shurmur will have reason to be discouraged by the attendance at this week’s voluntary minicamp. Dianna Russini of ESPN reports that Beckham is in attendance for Tuesday’s start to the three-day minicamp the Giants get to hold because they hired a new head coach this offseason.

Beckham is expected to go through the walkthrough portion of Tuesday’s practice, but not the practice itself as Rees Odhiambo Authentic Jersey he is still rehabbing from last year’s season-ending ankle injury.

While the lack of a contract extension creates some uncertainty about Beckham’s long-term outlook with the team, chatter about a possible trade that would take him off of this year’s roster has quieted down significantly over the last month. His appearances at voluntary workouts has played a role in that and continued attendance this offseason would likely keep things quiet on that front.

The Minnesota Wild returned home from Winnipeg and regrouped to roar back in their first-round playoff series.

The Jets were a late arrival for Game 3 in more ways than one.

Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise had power-play goals in the first period for the spark that was missing on the road, and the Wild scored four times in the second to beat the Jets 6-2 on Sunday night.

We’re in a series here, said Hellebuyck, who made 16 saves. We’re going to lose one once in a while. It’s how we respond to the next one.

After overtaking the Wild with two third-period goals to win 3-2 in Game 1 and dominating the action in Game 2 on the way to a 4-1 victory, the Jets hit some minor turbulence. The blizzard that blanketed the Twin Cities forced their charter flight to land in Duluth on Saturday afternoon and return to Winnipeg for the night. The Jets skipped the customary morning skate and arrived Sunday about eight hours before faceoff.

Whether or not the Jets were actually affected by the weather hardly mattered, given the way the Wild greeted them after the lackluster performance in Game 2.

I don’t know if it made us worse, but I can say for a fact that it certainly didn’t make us better, Jets coach Paul Maurice said.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts it was good to end the losing skid.

It’s good to get a win against anybody but, yeah, these guys have had our number, Roberts added. Clayton was sort of in a groove early. There’s something with Clayton’s track record, when he takes the mound there’s a heightened focus. His intensity every single time and when he takes the mound, our guys felt that today.

Los Angeles had been 0-5 versus the Diamondbacks this year, and hadn’t beaten them in the regular season since last August. But the Dodgers swept Arizona 3-0 last year in the NL Division Series.

Chris Taylor homered, doubled and drove in three runs to help the Dodgers stop a three-game skid. The Diamondbacks, who had won three in row, finished a 6-3 road trip.

Hopefully we can build on this momentum, Taylor said. I thought today was the best approach we had offensively so hopefully we can build on that.seahawks_132

Packers announce Davon House signing, cut David Talley

The Packers announced the signing of cornerback Davon House. They also cut linebacker David Talley.
Adidas NHL Men's Haydn Fleury Camo Authentic Jersey - #4 Carolina Hurricanes Veterans Day Practice
House, a fourth-round pick in 2011, has played 84 career games with 45 starts. He has made 199 tackles, seven interceptions, two forced fumbles and 69 pass breakups in his career.

He spent 2015 and ’16 with the Jaguars before returning to Green Bay last season.

The Packers signed Talley as an undrafted DeMarcus Lawrence Womens Jersey rookie free agent last May. He spent his rookie season on injured reserve after the Packers placed him there September 3.

Brandon Marshall Youth Jersey But that’s not what the league did. The NFL’s first comment on the matter was this: Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the National Anthem.

The NCAA announced today that on all kickoffs in college football, the receiving team will have the option to fair catch the ball anywhere inside the 25-yard line and have the play count as a touchback.

The NCAA was clear about the reasons for the rule change: Players get hurt on kickoff returns, and fewer returns will result in fewer injuries.
Michael Taylor Youth Jersey
The Football Rules Committee made the proposal to continue efforts to increase the number of touchbacks during kickoffs since fewer injuries occur during kickoffs that result in touchbacks than on kickoffs that are returned, the NCAA said.

This rule will result in fewer kickoff returns, and once fans become accustomed to fewer kickoff returns, they’ll become accustomed to the idea of getting rid of the kickoff entirely. The kickoff is going away.

And that’s it. No mention of Papa John. No mention of owners discussing the possibility of taking away the franchise, or of the manner in which Jones and son Stephen aggressively dismissed that possibility (even though the NFL’s Constitution & Bylaws contain a clear procedure for doing so). Ultimately, no mention of the league forcing Jones to pay back more than $2 million in legal fees incurred by the league and its teams as a result of the threatened litigation and the actual/perceived support for Ezekiel Elliott’s court challenge to his suspension.

Cardinals sign Beau Sandland Jersey

The Cardinals announced they have signed tight end Beau Sandland to a one-year contract.
Premier Women's Johnny Unitas Royal Blue Home Jersey: NFL Reebok Indianapolis Colts #19 Throwback
He joins Jermaine Gresham, who ruptured his Achilles in Week 17, Ricky Seals-Jones, Gabe Holmes and Bryce Williams at the position.

Sandland entered the league as a seventh-round pick of the Panthers in 2016 out of Montana State. He spent his rookie season on the practice squads of the Panthers and Packers.

So a day after Mara made sure to remind everyone the Giants are in charge, NFL Network reported Beckham will not take the field without a new deal. Players seeking new contracts often stay away from the voluntary portions of the offseason workouts 鈥?the lifting sessions and organized team activity practices 鈥?and sometimes are no-shows for the mandatory minicamp that signals the end of the offseason work 鈥?an absence that would incur a fine.
James Conner Womens Jersey
To truly take a stand, Beckham would have to sit out training camp and insist he will sit out the season unless he gets a new contract. If the Giants believe this is the direction Beckham is headed, they could immediately start looking for a trade partner 鈥?although they would set a high price for their superstar receiver.

But the 28-year-old Liuget may benefit indirectly from the move.
Duke Riley Womens Jersey
He was suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league’s performance enhancing substances policy, and those suspensions are without pay. So now instead of being docked 4/17ths of $8 million, he’ll have to surrender 4/17ths of some presumably smaller number. The Patriots did that with Tom Brady’s contract before his DeflateGate suspension, saving him $1.865 million.

He has two more seasons on his contract after this year. But he hasn’t lived up to the Jarius Wright Womens Jersey six-year, $58 million contract he signed in 2015, so some adjustment was probably to be expected regardless the suspension.

I thought he played with a lot of confidence. I thought he made good decisions out there on the floor, Indiana coach Nate McMillan said of his star guard. We talked about some of the things that Cleveland would do. I thought he recognized those and did a good job of attacking. He’s been a guy who has created a lot of things for us on both ends of the floor.

Maccagnan said the offer to Suh was a one-year deal and there was a deadline attached to it.

A day after Jets CEO Christopher Johnson revealed the team pulled its offer for free-agent defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, general manager Mike Maccagnan added some clarity to the situation.
Reebok NHL Men's Giovanni Fiore Orange Third Authentic Jersey - #90 Anaheim Ducks
When that deadline passed without even a visit to the Jets by Suh, he and Johnson decided to pull the offer.

Our focus with those guys is to try to set them up for success, he said. Some of those guys have pending legal cases that will play themselves out. We’re going to do our due diligence and monitor them. As we go forward, we’ll make decisions accordingly with those guys.

So, what happens to Christian Hackenberg with the Jets possibly drafting a quarterback next month and signing Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater? Will they release the 2016 second-round pick?

Is not Beckham supposed to be pulling some sort of power play, with a report he will not step on Womens Rod Langway Jersey the field unless he has a contract extension? Well, Beckham is rehabbing a fractured left ankle and there will be no work on the field for several weeks as the Giants convene next month. The superstar receiver showing up, as Shurmur for the first time welcomes his new players, would certainly send the message the Giants want to see from him.

I had a chance to share my thoughts on all topics Odell, other than football, certainly, and it was a good visit, Shurmur said Tuesday morning. He told me his favorite restaurants in town. We just got a chance to get to know one another. He’s a very charismatic guy, I think he really cares and I’m looking forward to working with him.
Game Mens Pavel Datsyuk Jersey
Despite a cacophony of noise at the NFL owners’ meetings this week, the Giants are not trying to trade Beckham. In fact, Shurmur is trying to get to know the lightning-rod 25-year-old and believes the West Coast sit-down was a step in that direction.

Yeah, I’ve got a good radar on people, Shurmur said. That’s why it’s important as players and coaches, anybody that’s working together, that you get a chance to visit and get to know one another. I really don’t think you can know somebody by just seeing reports, reading reports, hearing what people think and say, I think it’s really important, especially in the player-coach relationship that I get to know him.

NFL mock draft: Predicting earliest QB dominoes

The top safety prospects entering the 2018 NFL draft:

1. Derwin James, Florida State (6-2, 215): With outspoken confidence reminiscent of former Seminoles teammate and current Jaguars all-pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey, James has predicted he will go in the top 10 — and there’s a legitimate chance he will be proven correct. After a torn lateral meniscus sidelined him for almost the entirety of his sophomore season in 2016, he bounced back by earning second-team All-American honors despite a disappointing overall season for Florida State’s defense last year.

The Lions now have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal with Ansah, who piled up 12 sacks over 14 games in 2017.

Notre Dame’s Quenton Nelson could be the most talented player at his position in this year’s draft class, and is arguably the best guard prospect in the last 30 years.

Until that happens, there’s no telling when Donald will return to L.A. Rams brass continues to speak positively about getting Donald’s extension finalized, but that didn’t prompt Donald to report for Monday’s start of offseason workouts.

After being released by the Denver Broncos, C.J. Anderson is expected to draw plenty of interest as a free agent. One team that makes sense is the Miami Dolphins, who tried to trade for Anderson earlier this offseason.

Thomas played college football at Stanford and went undrafted, signing with the 49ers in 2012 and eventually joining their practice squad.

Thomas joined teammates in Miami last year in kneeling during the national anthem and has been involved in the NFL meetings concerning how to find a solution both sides will agree on.

Set to take part in April’s developmental Spring League, Manziel hopes his performance impresses scouts enough to warrant a second chance. No matter the outcome, however, he has the support of his family and new bride, Bre Tiesi.steelers_009

Cards aiming for 6th straight win

Even if the weather isn’t following suit, the St. Louis Cardinals have been heating up of late.
Men's Replica Majestic Marcus Stroman Royal Blue Alternate Jersey - #6 MLB Toronto Blue Jays Cool Base
Limited Earl Thomas Jersey The Cardinals have won five straight games heading into Wednesday’s game against the rival Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. The Friendly Confines haven’t been so congenial to the Cardinals of late, They lost nine of 10 games in Chicago last season but they captured their first Wrigley victory of the young season in a 5-3 victory on Tuesday.

The win improved St. Louis to 8-3 on the road this season. But considering the frustrations the Cardinals experienced here a year ago, extending their win streak on Chicago’s North Side Tuesday was a welcomed sight.

Starting pitching — no matter the venue — has been an issue for the Cubs, who again dropped under .500 (7-8) with Tuesday’s loss.

Tyler Chatwood walked seven over just 4 2/3 innings while laboring over 97 pitches. Chatwood also surrendered two earned runs and continued what’s been already become a disturbing trend for Chicago.

The Nationals optioned righty Trevor Gott to Triple-A Syracuse. He was 0-0 with a 5.40 ERA in five games for Washington.

Catcher Jhonatan Solano was put on the 60-day disabled list because of bone chips in his Authentic Darryl Roberts Jersey right elbow. He spent a short time with Washington this season and didn’t get into a game before going on the 10-day DL.

Ohtani spiked five pitches in the first inning, one of which bounced about five feet in front of home plate and resulted in a wild pitch. He began the second inning with two high sliders that backed up Eduardo Nunez, then allowed each of the next four batters to reach base.

My splitter, I didn’t have good command of that. My fastball, I didn’t feel off my fingertips. Same with my slider, Ohtani said.

The Angels (13-4) and Red Sox (14-2) entered as the two leaders in run differential, respectively. But the Red Sox pulled away early, adding another five runs in the third inning against Luke Bard.

He’s getting to be 100 percent, we are going to test him in the 40 when we return to Cincinnati, Blackburn said.

Brown’s son Paul Brown, the team’s vice president of player personnel, is also absent this week as he recovers from a torn ACL.

Blue Jays bopping along against Orioles

The Toronto Blue Jays have shown plenty of power in the first part of 2018. They will try to show more of it in the second game of their series with the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night at Camden Yards.
Elite Andre Iguodala Jersey Women's Replica Majestic Robin Yount Grey Road Jersey - #19 MLB Milwaukee Brewers Cool Base
Kendrys Morales came out of Monday’s game with a strained left hamstring and is going to be checked by the Toronto medical staff again Tuesday.

The Orioles (4-7) have done well with power at times but have struggled on occasion with runners in scoring position. That trouble continued in Monday’s loss.

Justin Williams had a goal and an assist, Jordan Staal scored a deflected goal and Phil Di Giuseppe had two assists for the Hurricanes. They had lost three straight and four of five down the stretch during their ninth straight season without making the playoffs — tied for the third-longest such drought in NHL history.

Listen, it’s tough for me to put on a smile for a couple seconds, and then you realize where you are, Williams said. And then instantly turns into a frown.

Ondrej Palat scored the tying goal with 8:49 left and Ryan Callahan also scored for Tampa Bay. But with star Steven Stamkos out for a third straight game with an upper-body injury, the Lightning earned one point for going to OT but relinquished control of the Atlantic Division race to Boston.

The Bruins, who beat Ottawa 5-2 on Saturday night, will win the division and claim the top spot in the East if they beat Florida on Sunday night.

J.J. Watt is the only player in NFL history who fits the above description. And there’s no doubt it pains the defensive end to ponder his recent on-field plight and wonder how long the Texans will continue to pay him superstar money if he can’t regain his All-Pro form.

Second, through his agent and other contacts in and around the NFL, Manziel could have been (and supposedly was) doing everything he could from Noah Syndergaard Youth jersey January until May to figure out what he needs to do in order to be successful in the NFL. Third, Manziel said later in the interview that, when Josh McCown joined the Browns in 2015, McCown showed Manziel how it’s done. So why did Manziel, who also had a new offensive coordinator in 2015, still flame out of the NFL after what was only his second season?

While most of the interview revealed a guy who now seems to be much more self-aware and mature than he ever was during his NFL career, any explanation for his failure in Cleveland other than I chose partying over football suggests that he truly hasn’t come to terms with why his career fell apart before it could get started.
