While speaking with reporters Tuesday, Giants co-owner John Mara reiterated his feelings about the star wide receiver, saying he’s eager to negotiate a multiyear contract to keep him with the organization for a long time.

I hope so, Mara said, via the New York Post.

Mariota followed up a career-best season in 2016 with a career-worst season in 2017, clouding his outlook as the franchise quarterback in Tennessee. That title isn’t in any immediate danger, but the Titans need more than the 13 touchdown passes and 15 interceptions Mariota produced last season.聽

Although nothing is guaranteed at quarterback, Mariota is probably too talented鈥攂oth as a passer and a runner鈥攆or him not to produce a bounce-back season in 2018.聽

Even so, the Titans still safeguarded the position by adding Gabbert and drafting Falk, providing the veteran and youngster all teams want behind the starter in the quarterback room. Gabbert has made 45 NFL starts, while Falk has starting potential if allowed to develop in Tennessee.聽

There could be a lot of great ideas that we might not be able to do because it’s not feasible for one reason or another. I don’t want to get the horse in front of the cart until we’re knowledgeable enough to know, because we’re not informed enough to know right now. But we do know that we have a desire to make a bigger impact on the future of Cleveland.

Haslam indicated that the franchise is in the early stages of learning about the project and their options, but it could take a decade or more to come into fruition.

Mikhail Grabovski Authentic Jersey The Browns also released a statement acknowledging that it is the organization’s priority to not only improve their stadium, but to also positively impact Ohio.

It is one of our top priorities to identify opportunities where we can positively impact Gary Sanchez Youth jersey Northeast Ohio, and we recognize that we must be forward thinking when considering potential ways to achieve that goal. We are acutely aware of the previous and ongoing discussions related to potential lakefront development, and we feel it is our civic responsibility to help identify productive solutions for the future of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.

David Tepper isn’t a Donald Trump fan

The tensions between the National Football League and the Commander-in-Chief won’t be subsiding when the newest member of the club officially gets made.

Billionaire David Tepper has spoken out publicly on multiple occasions regarding President Donald Trump. Chances are that Tepper eventually will do it again.

“It makes people nervous. And that’s economics. If the world’s destroyed, I don’t have anything. So that’s not good for me.”

That’s a very correct statement. If there’s no world, Tepper will lose everything. Along with everyone else.

For now, he’ll likely soon be acquiring the Panthers. Which gives him one more thing he’ll lose if the world is destroyed.

Ruiz lost his left leg below the knee in February because of a severe knee injury he suffered last fall playing high school football in Temecula, California. Brees made the presentation through his Football ‘N’ America project, a flag football league he started in New Orleans and expanded to the San Diego area.

It’s actually not the first gift he’s has given Ruiz, as a friend in California told him about the story last fall and Brees sent Ruiz a personalized jersey.

“It was a very emotional presentation and really exciting for everyone in our league to be a part of it,” Brees said. “Alex has suffered a long and very difficult road but has remained so positive and insists this set of circumstances will not hold him back. He still has loftier goals than ever for his athletic career and beyond. We wanted to help his dreams come true.”

Ruiz hopes to continue playing, and the prosthetic leg will give him a chance to do that.ravens_128

Warriors-Rockets series heads back to Houston tied at 2

Any lauding of the Houston Rockets’ resilience in Game 4 on Tuesday at Oracle Arena begins with an acknowledgment of their defense, with cliched adjectives serving the general purpose of explaining how they overcame a double-digit, fourth-quarter deficit to claim victory and square the Western Conference Finals before the series relocated back to Toyota Center.

Bucks spokesman Barry Baum said the team is aware of the decision and backing Brown. Coach Joe Prunty said last week that we support him in this and we believe it will be resolved quickly.

Whoever we play in the next round, I’m sure we will not be favored, said winger Jonathan Marchessault.

The Golden Knights will play the winner of the Tampa Bay Lightning-Washington Capitals series. The Lightning lead the series 3-2, with Game 6 on Monday in Washington.

Limited Josh Bell Jersey The Golden Knights become the second expansion team in the NHL, NBA, NFL Authentic Mikhail Sergachev Jersey or MLB since 1960 to reach a championship series in their first season. The other team was the 1967-68 St. Louis Blues, although that was at a time when the league had just 12 teams and eight made the playoffs.

The Celtics and Cavaliers are tied at two games apiece entering Wednesday night’s Game 5 of the conference finals.

Pernell McPhee Youth Jersey In our sit-downs or just our casual conversations, he seems to be in a great place, Stevens said. It’s killing him not to be out on the floor. But I think that would be the case, obviously, any time you’re playing this deep into the playoffs, especially in a new place. Other than that, his recovery is going great. We’re excited about that. But he seems to be in a good place.

Irving earned All-Star honors while guiding the Celtics through much of what was a 55-win campaign. His knee forced him to shut down in mid-March, and after a minimally invasive procedure wasn’t enough to get him back on the court, he elected for a more invasive procedure aimed at having him healthy for the start of the 2018-19 campaign.

Irving has been a familiar presence on the Celtics’ bench during home games throughout the postseason, and teammates, especially new starting point guard Terry Rozier, have raved about the leadership and guidance he has provided behind the scenes.

NFL Rookie Minicamp Roundup: Ravens Will Unleash Rookie Lamar Jackson Upon NFL

The Baltimore Ravens are prepping their offense so Lamar Jackson can make some noise this fall.聽
Nike NFL Tom Johnson White Jersey Men's Elite: #92 Minnesota Vikings Road Vapor Untouchable
These preparations don’t automatically entail Joe Flacco’s demise as the team’s franchise quarterback, but the Ravens will find ways to get the rookie involved. One sentiment from minicamp should strike fear into all Baltimore’s future opponents.

The Braves could call this season successful with a Dansby Swanson rebound, Brandon McCarthy staying healthy until the trade deadline, Ozzie Albies being one of the five Final Vote All-Star selections and half a dozen prospects moving steadily toward maturity. The Padres could call this season successful with a reassuringly strong Eric Hosmer campaign, one fewer walk per CM Punk Youth jersey nine from Dinelson Lamet, Brad Hand dominating until the trade deadline and half a dozen prospects moving steadily toward maturity. The White Sox could call this season successful with 80 walks from Yoan Moncada, a 94 mph average fastball from Lucas Giolito, James Shields pitching well until the trade deadline and half a dozen prospects moving steadily toward maturity. Or any of a hundred other possibilities.

Elite Youth Delano Hill Jersey For his part, Keenum said he can be better than he was for the Vikings, who advanced to the NFC Championship Game with Keenum behind center.

Every year’s been different for me, Keenum said. Every situation’s been different. … But I go out here and try to complete every ball.

Being quarterback doesn’t stop when I step off the field; it’s going on in [the team’s complex], too.

He’s the best player in the league, I don’t think there’s any argument on that, Sale said. It seems like he’s hitting a homer every other day. You’re in awe of him, the way he handles himself and the work he puts in. He’s not just showing up and going out there and doing that.

What does legalized sports betting mean for Rutgers athletes?

Legalized sports wagering 聽is a monumental change for New Jersey.

It’s not quite as dramatic for the athletics department at the state’s flagship university.

Monday’s聽 Supreme Court ruling that Jonas Hiller Jersey a federal ban on state-sanctioned sports betting is unconstitutional will not bring any drastic changes in how聽 Rutgers approaches sports betting, athletics director聽 Patrick Hobbs told NJ Advance Media.
Timo Meier Womens Jersey
NCAA bylaws prohibit wagering on sporting events (or association with those who do) by anyone connected to college athletics. The Court’s ruling won’t change that.

The ban is wide-ranging, covering everything from a bet at a sports book to a small buy-in March Madness pool to a fantasy football league. If something is put at risk in return for an opportunity to win something, the NCAA considers it wagering.

At the last second I saw a truck plow into my passenger side, Henderson said. T-boned, and then everybody who was talking to the police said I was airborne and I flipped in the air and I landed on another car and I rolled after that. I was very fortunate. Very blessed.

The driver of the stolen vehicle crashed into a pole after hitting Henderson’s Jeep.

In the photo below, you can see Henderson’s Jeep, which is sitting upside down behind the silver car.

Henderson shared a close-up shot of his Jeep on Instagram. The Broncos running back said he was able to climb out of the car after it landed.

Despite the terrifying nature of the accident, Henderson walked away with only minor injures. For the most part my body in general is sore, Henderson told 9news. No real injuries. A lot of bruises, a lot of scrapes. But my body is going to get better.

Luke Kuechly’s shoulder well enough to carry clubs

Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly won’t be participating in any on-field work in OTAs later this month, but he was able to get 18 holes in yesterday — in a manner of speaking.

Kuechly was caddying for Greg Olsen in the Wells Fargo Championship pro-am, and was sufficiently healthy to carrying a heavy bag of clubs..

Cyrus Kouandjio was a gamble that didn’t pan out.

“I feel good, shoulder feels good,” he said. “I haven’t done a whole lot on the field yet, but it’s gonna be fine.”

Getting the former defensive player of the year ready will be important for the Panthers, since he’ll be playing without running mate Thomas Davis (PED suspension) for the first month of the season.

Austin has the ability to function in several roles. He’s primarily a wide receiver, but can also return punts and kicksoffs as well as carry the ball out of the backfield. It sounds like Dallas is fully committed to giving Austin more than enough opportunities to be an impact player for the Cowboys. Team exec Stephen Jones says they want him to touch the ball a dozen times per game, at a minimum, as pointed out by Rotoworld’s Josh Norris.

In addition to Kamara, the Saints have Jonathan Williams, Daniel Lasco, Trey Edmunds and rookie Boston Scott, the team’s sixth-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.

There will be a handful of other guys competing for those touches, Payton said. Certainly, you miss something with a guy like Mark Ingram in those early weeks. But I think for us it’s going to be evaluating that whole position and determining who can handle some of that role.

Of the quartet vying to catch the coaching staff’s attention, the 6-foot, 223-pound Williams offers plenty of intrigue.

Williams, who played collegiately at Arkansas, landed on New Orleans’ radar during the predraft process in 2016. But the Bills used a fifth-round pick on Williams in the draft and he produced 94 yards rushing and a touchdown on 27 catches in 11 games during his rookie season. sabres_272

How 1 diving catch defines emergence of Rutgers’ Shameen Jones

Shameen Jones made the Rutgers spring football highlight reel during the team’s second scrimmage in early April, diving across the middle to haul in a deep ball from Artur Sitkowski.

Most would聽attribute the play to athleticism, good hands, speed. Jones聽points to the strength that allowed him to survive the ground once he corralled the pass.

Physically, he wasn’t ready to play, receivers coach Lester Erb said. He looks like a Big Ten wide receiver now.

Watt’s been running and lifting weights and should be on track to participate in training camp. If the demolition man returns to his destructive ways, Houston’s defense could be one of the nastiest in the AFC.

I didn’t want to believe the benefits, he said. But at that point, I Authentic Nik Stauskas Jersey was in so much pain and going through a lot mentally with the demands in the game, I tried it. It gave me instant relief.

Still: James didn’t want to simply ignore the rules. He wanted the league to acknowledge that marijuana was a safer alternative to opioids.

More ink is spilled on the Cowboys ‘ celebrated offensive line than all other blocking units combined. When this unit is healthy, though, it takes a back seat to no one. It all came together last season, with Peat moving inside to guard, Warford arriving to jump-start the running game and Ramczyk solidifying the pass protection at right tackle. Armstead has All-Pro potential on Brees’ blind side.

The 2017 Patriots finished No. 1 across the board in weighted DVOA, drive success rate, yards per drive, points per drive and total offense.

Seahawks General Manager John Schneider said two weeks ago he has received assurances from Earl Thomas’ representation that the safety won’t hold out. Schneider repeated in a radio appearance Thursday that he doesn’t expect Thomas to try to force his way out of town.

Jason Spezza Authentic Jersey My sense is that he wants to be here, Schenider said on 710 ESPN Seattle, via Jessamyn McIntyre. I haven’t got that sense from his agents at all.

Cory Schneider Authentic Jersey Washington used first- and fifth-round picks on defensive tackles, prompting the roster moves Monday. Louis Lipps Womens Jersey Francis played six games last season after Washington promoted him to the active roster, and he made 18 tackles.

The NFL’s daily transaction wire brings word that the teams have called off the trade. No reason has been given, but both teams will be moving on without the players, both of whom entered the league as sixth-round picks, they tried to ship elsewhere.

The transaction report also shows that the Browns have waived Telfer. The Chiefs did the same with Nicolas.

Telfer has five catches for 40 yards in 30 games over his first two seasons. Nicolas played 11 games in 2016, but did not see any action in 2017 after rupturing his patella tendon late in his rookie year.

The rest of the undrafted additions are Western Michigan linebacker Asantay Brown, UCF offensive lineman Aaron Evans, Purdue defensive end Danny Ezechukwu, South Florida defensive tackle Bruce Hector, Purdue wide receiver Anthony Mahoungou, Southern Illinois safety Ryan Neal, Central Michigan defensive end Joe Ostman, Slippery Rock offensive lineman Ian Park, South Alabama safety Jeremy Reaves, Auburn safety Stephen Roberts, Georgia safety Dominick Sanders, Georgia State cornerback Chandon Sullivan, Oklahoma cornerback Jordan Thomas, and LSU offensive lineman Toby Weatherby.

P.J. Hall signs rookie deal with Raiders

The Raiders announced the signing of another draft pick on Sunday.
Authentic Womens Mike Iupati Jersey Nike Jack Conklin Men's Olive/Gold Limited Jersey: #78 NFL Tennessee Titans 2017 Salute To Service
Defensive tackle P.J. Hall has agreed to a four-year deal with the team. Hall was selected in the second round of last week鈥檚 draft.

Hall comes to the Raiders after four strong years at Sam Houston State. He left the school as the all-time FCS leader in tackles for loss with 86.5 and will now be teammates with the previous record holder as linebacker James Cowser also plays for the Raiders.

Although it’s a fiscally prudent model that has become increasingly common with top prospects across the league, Braves management maintains that the bottom line didn’t matter in this case.

None, says Atlanta GM Alex Anthopoulos when asked how much the whole service-time issue played into Acuna’s demotion. Zero.

Still, from the Braves’ perspective, given that they weren’t expected to be competitive this year, the move made all the sense — er, cents — in the world. From the player’s perspective, not so much.

Authentic Womens Ray Allen Jersey When Haley was hired, Jackson said he was giving Haley complete control of the offense. In a sign of Chris Carpenter Authentic Jersey just how much Jackson is willing to take a hands-off approach to the offense, he was working with the defensive backs at Friday鈥檚 rookie minicamp.

Jackson is still the person who will choose the starting quarterback, and Jackson says Tyrod Taylor will start over first overall draft pick Baker Mayfield. But whether it鈥檚 Taylor or Mayfield starting in Cleveland this year, they鈥檒l be running Todd Haley鈥檚 offense.

The host interjected at that point, saying that G.M. Kevin Colbert said Thursday that he won鈥檛 keep four quarterbacks on the 2018 53-man roster.

So did they screw up the pick? Roethlisberger said. Or was he not as good as they thought? I don鈥檛 know, and I feel bad, because Josh puts a lot of work in.

Then Ben brings the arrival of rookie Mason Rudolph back to himself, with a comment that likely was more joke than serious remark. But he still said it out loud.

I wouldn鈥檛 think they鈥檇 get rid of Mason, keep Dobbs and Landry, Roethlisberger said. I wouldn鈥檛 think. Maybe they鈥檙e trying to trade me away or something, I don鈥檛 know.

Jets’ Sam Darnold’s 1st throws at rookie minicamp

The future is now for the New York Jets, who got their first look at quarterback Sam Darnold in green and white (ok, red jersey with green and white shorts) on Friday during the first day of rookie minicamp at the Atlantic Health Training Center in Florham Park, N.J.

If he can get that corrected, watch out. New York would have a franchise passer for the next 15 years. If he keeps turning the ball over, it’s not going to be pretty in the AFC East. Darnold needs to get back to his 2016 form this Jets draft is all about whether he’s the answer.

What’s next for the Seahawks?

Avril isn’t the only veteran on the Seattle defense who won’t be back in 2018. Kam Chancellor is another possibility after suffering a stinger that could end his career. Richard Sherman was released and signed by the 49ers, and Michael Bennett was traded to the Eagles.

Even Earl Thomas has been the subject of trade rumors throughout the 2018 offseason.

But it appears the allure of the broadcast booth is too much: MNF is open with Jon Gruden returning to the Raiders as their coach, leaving one of the premiere spots in broadcasting for the NFL open.

Witten likely saw this as his only opportunity to leap from the field into the top tier of the broadcast booth. We have our CBS slot filled with Witten’s old teammate Tony Romo, Cris Collinsworth is cemented at NBC and Troy Aikman’s got FOX on lockdown. If Witten wanted to get in the door on a major network, this was his opportunity.

The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly.

Game changer: Kirk Herbstreit. Markman calls the popular “Herbie” the “face” of college football on TV. ESPN is hoping his presence on the main set will attract “College GameDay” fans. Herbstreit’s knowledge of players coming out of the college game is second to none, added Markman: “He knows these guys better than anyone. Knows the systems they came from. Knows all the coaches they played for. I think he’s going to add something that we’ve never had before.”
