Kirk Cousins did not force the Minnesota Vikings to switch restaurants during their free agent visit, contrary to a report.
Prior to Cousins’ visit with the Vikings, NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reported that the quarterback was on a variation of the Tom Brady diet. Because of that, the Viking supposedly were going to dine at a different restaurant from the usual steakhouse where they take players.
It was also smart for the Jets to go all-in at quarterback this offseason. Signing Teddy Bridgewater to a one-year deal was a boom-or-bust move, but it was worth the risk. Their trade for the No. 3 overall pick was controversial because they gave up a lot, but they’re now in line to get no worse than the third quarterback in the class. If they’re in love with the quarterback who falls to them and properly develop him, the cost won’t be remembered as an issue.
The Seahawks couldn’t sign the deal because Walter Jones would’ve made more than Hutchinson, and a fully guaranteed contract worth $49 million would’ve crippled the team.
A more common example was the Jacksonville Jaguars signing center Alex Mack to a front-loaded offer sheet with an opt-out clause. The Cleveland Browns matched the offer, but it ultimately led to Mack leaving and becoming a free agent two years later.
The Bears are among the league leaders in cap space. Any number the Packers were comfortable paying is one that Chicago didn’t have much issue matching.
Chopra on whether he has doubts that Brady will play in 2018: “No. You know, I’ve seen Tom’s process, and I think there’s very little doubt that he will eventually, this season, sort of find that thing that will get him back and really amped for next season. This past year was very unsatisfying in terms of how it ended, and so I don’t necessarily envision him leaving that as the last taste, you know, like I said to hold on.”

Padres reliever Jose Torres was placed on MLB’s restricted list Monday Authentic Mike Remmers Jersey and is due to appear in court next week because of a domestic violence incident in December, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Torres, 24, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, criminal damage and intimidation stemming from the incident at a Phoenix-area home he shares with a woman and is being handled as a domestic violence case, according to court documents cited in the report.

Of course, elsewhere in Florida and Arizona this week more than a thousand players will be arriving for six weeks of spring training for 30 MLB teams.
But the most intriguing camp will be baseball’s 31st, USA Today noted: The one in Bradenton, where former Astros manager Bo Porter will conduct workouts open to more than 80 unemployed players, keeping them in shape if someone calls.
I did not think this was going to be a possibility,” Porter said, but as the offseason went on, and you saw an unprecedented number of MLB free agents, we thought it was necessary.

Zach Strief operated in the shadows for most of his 12-year career with the New Orleans Saints. But the 34-year-old right tackle got the grand send-off he deserved when he officially announced his retirement Monday at the team’s practice facility.
Limited Youth Brett Favre Jersey
A preseason trade from the Jets to Seattle, if nothing else, gave Richardson tape in both the 4-3 and 3-4 defenses. The Seahawks, who gave up a second-round pick and receiver Jermaine Kearse to get Richardson, might want him as a younger replacement for Michael Bennett. Richardson made a few splashy plays in Seattle, but he probably wasn’t dominant enough to spark a frenzied bidding war.
Solder finished the regular season on a strong note but is undeniably an inconsistent player who would have never been a candidate to hit the open market if his play had smoothed out. With that said, it’s rare for even a capable left tackle to reach free agency. Solder would be a popular target.
Johnson earned $30.7 million while playing under the Rams’ franchise tag over the past two seasons. He was a reliable starter, but he didn’t approach his seven-interception performance of 2015 — he had just one in 2016 and two in 2017 — and has yet to make a Pro Bowl.
You’ve been retired for six years. Do you miss playing at all and how are you occupying your free time these days?

I don’t really miss playing at the highest level, competing in the major leagues. That’s not something I really miss. I still enjoy playing baseball on a leisurely, casual basis. The love for the game is still there. As far as how I spend my time, I work as a special adviser for the Yankees, so I go around to minor league teams and share my knowledge and expertise. Aside from that, I just spend time with my family.
His family has asked Authentic Michael Brockers Jersey for privacy, and the Giants’ statement read, in part, Please keep Orlando Cepeda and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Cepeda appeared healthy last month at former teammate Willie McCovey’s 80th birthday part at AT&T Park, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Nicknamed the Baby Bull because of his thick build, Cepeda was NL Rookie of the Year in 1958, the year the Giants moved to San Francisco from New York.

In the 19 games he missed at the beginning of the season, the Spurs handed the keys of the offense over to second-year guard Dejounte Murray, who will be the new starter moving forward, and backup guard Patty Mills.
Parker is still capable of giving them solid minutes while they continue to develop Murray (Mills is at his best coming off the bench), but neither of them are Jeff Locke Jersey as good as Walker is right now. It helps that Walker and Aldridge have all the makings of a dominant pick-and-pop duo, and that Walker’s ability to play with and without the ball in his hands 锟斤拷 the latter of which Parker and Murray struggle with 锟斤拷 give him the tools to thrive next to a high-usage player like Leonard.
The Spurs have plenty of reasons to believe Murray can be their point guard of the future, but they’re a veteran-heavy team built to compete now. If they’re hoping to hang with the likes of the Warriors and Rockets this season and next, putting the ball in Walker’s hands is the type of move they should be looking to make.
It’s not all about giving the freedom and giving the responsibility, Carlisle said. The ideal situation is for him to earn it, and that starts in the summer, when we go to our pre-Vegas rookie camp. And then he plays in the Summer League, he gets individual work during the summer, he gets into training camp. If it’s not earned, it’s not meaningful. And to a large degree, he’s earned the responsibility that he’s gotten.
Young is averaging 34.3 points and 10.7 assists per 40 minutes while projecting as a better than 40.0 percent 3-point shooter at the next level. The 19-year-old’s ability to pull up from well behind the arc off the bounce can have a gravitational effect on opposing defenses. Young is just the fresh start Orlando’s looking for.
The Bulls need a connecting piece between Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen, and it’s a spot Villanova’s Bridges could slot into with ease. The 6-7 wing is one of college basketball’s most versatile defenders with the stats to back it up, as he’s averaging 2.1 steals and 1.5 blocks per 40 minutes.
San Francisco Giants Mens Jersey Bridges is the quintessential 3-and-D wing. He projects as a high 30s 3-point shooter at the next level based on his quality free throw shooting and 3-point volume. The 21-year-old’s upside hinges on what kind of creation he can offer. If he can attack closeouts consistently, he’ll be one of the league’s top role players. If he can initiate on his own, he’ll be a star.

Plus, there’s the Max Pacioretty case. With a year left on his deal, he could either bring a large haul in a trade or provide top-tier goal scoring for the future if he were to re-sign. The Canadiens also currently have five picks in the first two rounds of the draft.
The Rockets took a seven-point lead into halftime. Stephen Curry turned in a poor first half, going 2 of 11. He finished with 19 points, the lowest since he came back from an ankle injury that kept him out for about a month earlier this season. The win was mostly earned down low, with the Rockets outrebounding the Warriors 46 to 33. The Warriors were also forced into 19 turnovers, with Curry committing six of them.
Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green missed the game for the Rockets. They are serving two-game suspensions for the Rockets’ locker room incident after a game against the Clippers.
Mason made his first appearance since Jan. 9th, when he was sidelined with a concussion. The veteran will play important minutes down the stretch as Winnipeg looks to lighten Connor Hellebuyck’s workload before the playoffs. The franchise hopes to win a playoff series for the first time in its history.
Winnipeg teammates Mark Schiefele and Blake Wheeler collided in the first period. Schiefele initially returned to action but was later ruled out for the game with an upper-body injury. His last shift ended with 3:58 remaining in the second period.
Now, can they beat them in a seven-game series? Maybe not, but the Rockets certainly have all of the tools to compete with the defending champs in a potential Western Conference finals.
“We can play a little bit,” Chris Paul told ESPN following the game. “It’s not anything big or anything like that, I mean, it’s January for god sakes, you know what I mean? So, thank God we came out healthy.”
The only question health-wise for the Rockets was James Harden who is just two games removed from missing seven games with a leg injury. The MVP candidate is on a minutes restriction for Houston, but as the clock wound down Saturday, Harden was still on the court, and for good reason. He hit the 3-pointer that put Houston up two possessions late in the game.

Our union is proud of all of our players whenever they express themselves for a bigger purpose, the NFL Players Association said in a statement Tuesday. During this past season, we received assurances from both commissioner Kenny Stills Youth jersey Roger Goodell and the chairman of the the Management Council, John Mara, that the right of players to demonstrate would be protected. We are glad that both the Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins have clarified their positions to be consistent with what was confirmed with our union leadership, and we expect all other NFL teams to maintain the same commitment to protecting hose rights.
It shows a lack of respect for an opponent, and maybe right now we don’t deserve respect, Suns forward Jared Dudley told ESPN. When you keep getting beat by 40, teams won’t respect you. But it’s up to us to change that.
Hitting the open market means Thomas will not be able to sign using Bird rights, and will have to find a spot on a team with the room to sign him. There will be a limited number of teams with cap space next summer, and none of those is likely to want to give Thomas a max deal. He is 29 years old, coming off an injury and now has acquired a rep for locker-room troubles.
It’s a tough position because he has certain expectations but it’s hard to see where he could have those expectations met, said the GM, who spoke before the deal that sent Thomas to LA. He is going to be disappointed, a lot, if he is not with Cleveland but still thinks he is getting a max deal out there. The money is just not there.
It’s been a sharp tumble for Thomas. So much for the Brinks truck.

So as you watch the Underwear Olympics on NFL Network this week ï¿½ï¿½ although hopefully you have something better to do ï¿½ï¿½ just know the real action is taking place behind the scenes.
Elite Mens Terrance Mitchell Jersey The Vikings are back up to seven draft picks in April after being awarded two compensatory selections. But as a contender on the brink of a championship, Minnesota should be aggressive again in acquiring key veterans. According to OverTheCap.com, Minnesota has a solid $49 million in salary-cap space with which to operate.
The Terrelle Pryor Sr. one-year signing was a bust, as he did little to help Washington overcome the free-agent losses of Pierre Garcon (49ers) and DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers). First-round pick Josh Doctson has not yet delivered as a true No. 1, and slot man Jamison Crowder was the Redskins’ limited leading receiver by default.
Doctson was a good red-zone target at times, but the team didn’t really have an outside gamebreaker or possession guy. The Rams’ Sammy Watkins would be the top target to regain the big-play element the Redskins had with Jackson, plus a little more. The Seahawks’ Paul Richardson is also someone to consider as a speedy downfield threat.
Going Brett Favre Jersey for more versatility, the Jaguars’ Marqise Lee and the Chiefs’ Albert Wilson also would fit as No. 2-types. On the cheap, flyer route for upside, there’s the Broncos’ Cody Latimer. The priority of the offseason is a field-stretcher, so if the Redskins don’t get that in a veteran, they’ll focus on drafting someone fast early in the draft.
Papa John’s, the league’s official pizza sponsor since 2010, was under contract through the 2020 season prior to the fallout. According to ESPN, the NFL’s new deal with Pizza Hut will start April 1 and is expected to run through the 2021 season.
Elite Mens Tramaine Brock Jersey John Schnatter received much backlash and apologized after commenting that protests in the NFL were affecting his company’s sales. As a result, he later stepped down as Papa John’s CEO on Jan. 1.
ESPN noted that Papa John’s sales were down 3.9 percent from 2016 in the months of October through December last year. While the company is now a sponsor of 22 NFL teams, it can no longer use the league’s shield in their advertising.

Elias: Huh … good question. It’s not so much something in the game. It’s more about being able to adjust and adapt to different situations. Like not playing top line all the time, especially at the end of your career. Not always playing with the top players. Sometimes even linemates from the fourth line. Just playing with your teammates, and doing whatever you can to make them better. But when you play with less talented players, you take more shots. You might not be able to get too many passes from other players.
With ideal length at 6-3, and likely showcasing his athletic burst and bend at the Combine, Evans is a slight notch below Edmunds as a unique talent. He could emerge as a potential top-15 pick during the draft process.
A thick, mauling guard, Hernandez is a devastating run blocker who showed at the Senior Bowl he can dominate as a quick interior pass protector in the NFL.
Game Kids Chris Thompson Jersey Though most do not feel the Browns are eager to trade the pick, Dorsey is willing to listen if anyone wants to make an offer.
Why wouldn’t I? he asked.
The Browns traded down in the draft in 2014 and 2016, but it would be a surprise if the Browns trade the No. 1 pick. The general thinking is the Browns will keep the pick and focus on the top quarterbacks: Southern California’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen, Wyoming’s Josh Allen John Starks Womens Jersey and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield.
You can chalk the lack of production up to a bad team, tough environment or whatever else. His shots per game are down too. Maybe Kane would rebound after a breath of fresh air with a new team, but it’s tough to bank on that. When you’re dealing with high-priced rentals, you have to manage that risk. His first half was so strong, as he was an offensive leader for the team. His going really quiet since gives me pause.

The Eagles led the league in quality touchdown celebrations this season. But they didn’t give us a single dang choreographed celebration in their thrilling win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
That’s not too far off from the This is Us regular 9 p.m. ET broadcast slot. But if you’re hoping to get to bed early, you might want to set your DVR to cover everything from 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., just in case.
Tampa goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy, who got the night off against the Senators, has won eight of his past 11 starts. He has given up two or fewer goals in 28 of his 49 starts this season. He leads the league with seven shutouts this season to tie the franchise record (six of them on the road), set by Nikolai Khabibulin in 2001-02.
The Lightning had a 4-1 lead against the Senators and hung on to win. Tampa coach Jon Cooper will be looking for a little bit more of a killer instinct against the Canadiens.
We’re just at that time of the year, especially when the teams are right on our heels, that we’ve be got to be a little bit more responsible, Cooper told NHL.com. For a large part of the year, we were doing that. For whatever reason, we’ve taken our foot off the gas in that regard.
The pre-Super Bowl interview has become a tradition over recent years. It originated with George W. Bush. Barack Obama carried it on starting in 2009, and he did one each year of his presidency.
Basketball commentator Charles Barkley joked during the TNT halftime show that he needed a cigarette after Fergie’s performance.
Former Lakers star Shaquille O’Neal leaped to Fergie’s defense, saying: Fergie, I love you. It was different. It was sexy. I liked it. Leave her alone.
Others on social media weren’t as kind, with criticism of the performance outpacing the positive reviews.

We definitely Womens Stephone Anthony Jersey owe them, Pateryn said after Thursday’s win in L.A. I think everyone’s looking forward to some rest (on Friday), but everyone’s looking forward to that game too.
Kane is definitely a candidate to get dealt and perhaps one of the best players available.
The 26-year-old forward is expendable at least in part because he’s in the last season of his deal with a rebuilding team led by first-year general manager Jason Botterill. The Sabres have not appeared to express an interest in re-signing Kane, who could command a lot of money as a free agent in July.

Kane, drafted No. 4 overall by Atlanta in 2009, was acquired by Buffalo from Winnipeg in 2015 a few weeks before the trade deadline in a deal that sent a first-round pick that year to the Jets. He has 20 goals this season, ranking second on the team, and 177 in his career.
Yadier Molina Authentic Jersey Talented player, Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. Real fast.
James and Bryant were falling to the ground as part of the process of making their respective attempts to catch passes.
Both Clement and Ertz came dangerously close to crossing the line that defines the tiny difference between a complete and incomplete catch in the NFL. It’s a telling indictment of the catch rule, though, that either play was even close to not being ruled a touchdown.
The NFL will get to work on its rules in the next few months, but the world should be grateful the catch rule as it stands ultimately didn’t affect or ruin a great Super Bowl.
Some teams already out of the playoff race, including Buffalo and Detroit, are trying to trade players with expiring contracts for draft picks to potentially bolster the future of their franchises.
Kane is definitely a candidate to get dealt and perhaps one of the best players available.
