I’ve had fun working with the guys, Richardson said. One thing I learned soon as I got here, they don’t have big egos, so it’s easier for us to learn from one another. It’s crazy what I’ve learned over the years from my high school coaches to college, to be able to come here and be able to open their eyes to certain stuff. And then they’re helping me learn the offense and showing me how to run routes here and where the timing is.
I think it’s good. It’s not like that everywhere. Guys aren’t trying to get other guys ready that play the same position. So that’s healthy.The potential is there. The Redskins just need everyone on the same page as quickly as possible and for those youngsters to take the next step in their progression.
Watt, a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, suffered a broken leg in Week 5. Watson was off to an MVP-caliber start in his rookie season before suffering a torn ACL in late October. The dual-threat quarterback passed for almost 1,700 yards and 19 touchdowns in seven games.
This news correlates with recent updates on both players. Texans coach Bill O’Brien said at the NFL meetings in late March that Watson was ahead of schedule, but there’s still a lot of work to put in.
The relationship is new and budding, and Stewart’s initial observations of Barkley are all positive.
The classic Sports Illustrated photo shoot of a smiling Namath, the AFL’s prize, the big apple of Jets owner Sonny Werblin’s eyes, is how it all started. A $427,000 star was born.
When Joe Namath walks into a room, Werblin said, you know he’s there. When any other high-priced rookie walks in, he’s just a nice-looking young man.
For Werblin, a former Hollywood executive, there was no business like Joe business.

I felt some pain throughout my entire right side of my ankle into my leg, he said. I was just hoping for the best, obviously, because I’ve seen so many different injuries, and watching basketball with that type of injury, someone fall into one’s leg standing straight up. Luckily, I was able to finish the game.
The 33-year-old has said several times since coming home in 2014 that he wants to retire with the Cavaliers, but fans are uneasy because he can opt out of his $35.6 million contract this summer and test free agency.
Wide receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs were both top-20 fantasy wide receivers last season and combined to handle 46 percent of the team’s targets. Cousins will also have second-year Dalvin Cook in the backfield and Kyle Rudolph at tight end. Minnesota additionally has one of the league’s best defenses, which might limit Cousins’ second-half pass attempts but should shorten the field and allow more scoring opportunities.
His streak ended in Oklahoma City, in a rematch of the previous season’s Finals, when James shot only 14-of-24 (58 percent) and scored 39 points in an incredible duel Womens Richaun Holmes Jersey with Kevin Durant, who scored 40 points. The Heat won by 10.
Elite Youth Phil Dawson Jersey The price tag was preposterous, even for a team flush with picks: Vegas sent a first-round pick in 2018, a second-rounder in 2019 and a third-round pick in 2021 for Tatar. The results have been… underwhelming. Tatar scored four goals in 20 games in the regular season and one goal in six playoff games while being a frequent healthy scratch. This is perhaps McPhee’s worst move thus far… and Tatar is signed through 2021 at $5.3 million annually.

Suspended Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is working through the process required for reinstatement by the NFL and the paperwork could be filed as early as next week, Pro Football Talk reported, citing unidentified sources.
The former second-round pick has been suspended since January 2017 for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, his third suspension since he was a second-round draft pick in 2015.
You can’t re-enact that, Thomas said, but I definitely want to make a great first impression here, prove my worth and earn the trust of my teammates. I believe all things happen for a reason. It’s a blessing for me. This was the right place for me to be.

Center fielder Aaron Hicks has loved watching it.
Besides, it’s not as if all players need to not show up. If the NFL’s starting quarterbacks come together and agree to make it known to all other quarterbacks on the roster that none of them will be working, well, good luck having football practice with no quarterbacks. And if any of the young quarterbacks decide to cross the de facto picket line, consider this cautionary tale from Paul Zimmerman’s memoir.
In 1974, Chiefs quarterback David Jaynes, a third-round rookie, crossed the picket line. Center Jack Rudnay, who was the leader of Kansas City’s strike effort, had a message for Jaynes when the strike ended. Before practice Rudnay had taken a pair of scissors and cut out the crotch of his football pants, Zimmerman writes.
When he got down to snap the ball, everything was hanging out. Jaynes began his call… he reached down… and the ball went flying out of his hands. Coach Hank Stram, monitoring practice from a tower, yelled, What’s the hell’s going on down there?

Cliff Avril’s time with the Seahawks has come to an end.
The veteran defensive end has been released from Seattle with a failed physical designation, the team announced Friday.
Thank you 12s for making the last 5 years in Seattle so amazing! Avril wrote on Instagram, in part. THANK YOU to the entire Seahawk organization as well as my teammates. You all made me a Pro Bowler and a Super Bowl Champ! I am forever grateful. THANK YOU!
That’s a good a place to start, even if the natural instincts of observers are to second-guess Cleveland’s draft picks. Mayfield will be linked to Saquon Barkley, the Penn State running back who went No. 2 overall to the Giants. Ward will be linked to Bradley Chubb, the N.C. State defensive end who went No. 5 overall to the Broncos. Chubb will be Earl Mitchell Womens Jersey compared to the running backs who were selected before and after him.

Ware alleges she lost her job with the Miami Dolphins when she showed up to work wearing a ring that signified she was a virgin. Since 2014, five other NFL teams 鈥?the Raiders, Buccaneers, Bengals, Jets, Bills, and one NBA team, the Bucks 鈥?have faced lawsuits from their dancers, each alleging severe labor violations, and offering glances into the secretive and manipulative world of professional cheerleading: mandatory diets; forced beauty regimens paid out of pocket; countless hours of work for which the super-rich teams they cheered for refused to pay them.
The good news for Flacco is he should benefit from the Ravens’ offseason emphasis on adding weapons to spice up their dull offense. Wide receivers Michael Crabtree, Willie Snead and John Brown were free-agent signees, and the draft yielded two other wide receivers in Jaleel Scott and Jordan Lasley. The Ravens also made two high picks at tight end in first-rounder Hayden Hurst and third-rounder Mark Andrews.
The clock will be ticking on all of this year’s first-round quarterbacks to become starters, and all five situations will be interesting to watch. But Baltimore’s QB competition is the only one that involves a Super Bowl MVP.

The Browns’ 2018 schedule features another uneasy path for a franchise coming off an 0-16 season that set a rebuild in motion with new GM John Dorsey in the offseason.
Bottom line: This is Cleveland, so there are no easy games on the schedule. If you look at the first six weeks of the last two seasons, Cleveland had six one-score losses. If the Browns can flip one or two of those into close victories regardless of competition, it could build some momentum in the right direction. Here is a not-so-fun fact for Browns fans: Cleveland is 1-18 in openers since returning to the NFL in 1999, and that includes 13 straight Week 1 losses and an 0-14 record at home. A Week 1 victory would be a giant step in the right direction. Record prediction: 4-12
According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Rosen tried to decline the invitation to the NFL Player Association’s “Rookie Premiere” so he could stay in Arizona and practice, but was told he couldn’t.
That decision sparked some back-and-forth on Twitter between ESPN and the union over a report that one player wanted to, and created some confusion about what could and couldn’t be done by players.
The event is voluntary, but players are told that by rule, they can’t work out with their teams during the event if they choose to skip it. (Which keeps teams from making them “volunteer” for their “voluntary” workouts instead.) But the CBA says that teams must permit rookies to attend the event, and doesn’t specify that they can’t be at the team facility if they don’t go. There’s a side agreement between the league and the union on the matter, and the league sends out a memo each year saying that players invited to the event can’t practice during that weekend.
“They’re new members of the NFL and say, ‘Hey, I want to stick around and practice,’” said Ahmad Nassar, president of NFL Players, Inc., the licensing and marketing arm of the union. “We understand that and so does the NFL. The reality is we can’t force them to come.”

Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was off to a promising start in his rookie season last year, rushing for 354 yards in four games before suffering a torn ACL on October 1. He’s now making solid progress toward getting healthy for his second season.
Sachin Chandan, ESPN The Magazine researcher: I’m also going with William Karlsson here. While he has been outscored by his linemate Marchessault, Karlsson has kept up his own scoring pace while feeding the success of his linemates. He has assisted on 37.5 percent of Marchessault’s goals and 50 percent of Reilly Smith’s goals, opening up scoring chances even when he’s not shooting. And he still shoots; Karlsson is third on the Golden Knights with 44 shots, cashing in on six of them.
Karlsson is also a big part of the Golden Knights’ neutral zone defense. Vegas is far and away the leader in takeaways in the playoffs, and a big part of that is their aggression in the neutral zone. Karlsson is tied with Schmidt as the leader in takeaways during the postseason, driving the play back for Vegas. He has been trusted with significant penalty-kill and power-play time, and has maintained his strong play.
Consistency in the weight room, that is the biggest thing, Kuzma said on Tuesday of what he has seen out of Ball this offseason so far. He has been in there pretty much every day I have been in here around this time. You can tell he is taking the weight room a lot more serious and that is going to help him by allowing him to recover faster and hopefully next year be on the court more because of that weight room.
When the Lakers’ season ended, team president Magic Johnson told Ball that this would be the biggest summer of his life. The Lakers want to see Ball — who was Womens Vic Beasley Jersey limited to a total of 52 games due to injuries but still earned second-team All-Rookie honors after averaging 10.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.9 rebounds — add more muscle to his wiry frame in hopes of improving his ability to stay on the court.

When the Lakers’ season started, the team’s rookies all wrote down a goal of theirs. Kuzma’s target was to make the All-Rookie team. On Tuesday, Kuzma was named first-team All-Rookie, joining Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons, Utah’s Donovan Mitchell, Boston’s Jayson Tatum and Chicago’s Lauri Markkanen. Kuzma had the fourth-most first-place votes.
Elite Womens Wes Horton Jersey From day one, they let me be who I am, Kuzma said of the freedom Luke Walton and the Lakers’ coaching staff gave him after the team held another draft workout this week.

He has some improvement to do in the pass pro, without a doubt, and I think he’ll be the first one to tell you, the head coach said, per ESPN.com’s John Keim. Gruden continued:
That’s where he has recently played, head coach Jon Gruden said at rookie minicamp, per ESPN.com’s Paul Gutierrez. We like him at left tackle. We think he’s a prototype left tackle. He can bend, he’s got the length that you’re looking for and he’s a sharp kid…that Authentic Matt Martin Jersey doesn’t mean that’s where they’re going to end up, though.
Miller fits the mold of an NFL left tackle. Isaiah Wynn and Austin Corbett don’t. Although both may be protecting their respective quarterbacks’ blind sides this fall.

Jackson ravaged the collegiate ranks with 9,043 career passing yards, 4,132 rushing yards and 119 total touchdowns. A package of plays for the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner should extend beyond the typical zone-read approach.
They want me on the field to utilize my talent and be a quarterback, Jackson said, per Mink. So it’s cool with me.聽
Rest easy, Ravens fans. Baltimore plans to use Jackson, and the offense should be far more potent and unpredictable after ranking 27th overall last season.
Mitch Moreland (L), 23.4 percent, Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays (RHP Chris Archer): Right-hander on the hill, Moreland in your lineup: Among batters with at least 80 plate appearances against that split, Moreland’s .436 wOBA ranks sixth on the year, and Archer’s issues with hard contact amplify Moreland’s potential.
Ben Zobrist (B), 22.3 percent, Chicago Cubs vs. Cleveland Indians (RHP Adam Plutko): Plutko will make his first turn in the Tribe’s rotation after his 2.25 ERA across seven starts for Triple-A Columbus, but the Cubs are a tough draw. The switch-hitting veteran often leads off against righties, and despite his lack of power, he’s tagging them for a .301/.407/.438 line and a .374 wOBA on the year.

In new financial disclosure, Trump reports apparent payment through Kyle Korver Jersey his personal attorney to adult-film star
In new financial-disclosure documents, President Trump reported reimbursing his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, more than $100,000 last year 鈥?an apparent reference to the $130,000 that Cohen paid just before the 2016 election, to ensure the silence of an adult-film actress who claimed she’d had an affair with Trump.

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith says that he is no longer wearing the AFO brace for drop foot.
He said he has not worn it since he began working out again in February.
It’s nice to have that history to lean on, said Kapler. One thing is we’ve seen Hector’s flashes of his split being really nasty and getting big important outs. That confidence never wavers. He’s actually done it.
If it’s the best situation for Hector – and it might not be tonight pitching back-to-back and three out of four – but if we don’t use him it’s not because we think he wouldn’t be effective. If at any points he’s the best guy to get the three outs in the ninth inning, he’ll have that opportunity to do so.
While it was a solid first stretch in the closer’s role, his 3.01 ERA at the end of the 2017 season was nearly a half-run higher than the year before, when he posted a 2.58 ERA as one of the game’s best setup men.
Doug Pederson says he is not going to rush quarterback Carson Wentz back to the field.
Wentz suffered a torn ACL in December and is recovering from surgery to repair the injury. Pederson said on Friday that Wentz is recovering nicely, but the Philadelphia Eagles are not going to rush him back.
The closer walked three straight hitters with his fastball velocity down to mostly around 96 mph from its usual 100 mph and he was all over the place. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild checked on him once and the training staff also checked on him.
After getting an out with the bases loaded, Chapman got pinch hitter Jonathan Lucroy to hit a fly to shallow left field. Brett Gardner caught it and fired a one-hopper home. Matt Olson was initially called safe at home.

Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning came into the NFL in the same draft class, stayed with one iconic franchise for 15 seasons and won two Super Bowl rings apiece.
For all of the consternation over Steve Sarkisian’s play-calling, Ryan’s offense finished second in drive success rate and yards per drive last season. With better interception luck and improvement in the red zone, the NFL’s highest-paid player could find himself back in the MVP race. Schaub’s physical skills began to deteriorate a half-decade ago. It’s hard to believe he’s still hanging on to the No. 2 job in Atlanta.

In the aftermath of the Patriots ‘ trade of Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers, ESPN’s Seth Wickersham reported — as part of a larger story on brewing tension within the Patriots’ building — that Brady seemed liberated.

The point being, most players aren’t excited about the idea of their team drafting their replacement. Big Ben’s not the only one who’s felt like this. Still, it was surprising to hear Roethlisberger question the pick so openly during his interview with 93.7 The Fan.
