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.
Game Womens Mark Bavaro Jersey
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. A lot of rookies don’t come into the league and have that type of leeway that Coach Walton and his staff really gave me.

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.

That’s when former teammate Jason Witten opined during a guest appearance on The Adam Schefter Podcast that the Green Bay Packers would be a great spot for Bryant. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, however, reported the Packers are currently not engaged in discussions with Bryant and nothing is imminent.
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.
The forms, which covered all of calendar-year 2017, provided new details about how Trump’s businesses fared during his first year in office. They showed some successes. Trump’s hotel in downtown Washington 鈥?a hub for visiting lobbyists, Republican fundraisers, and some embassy parties 鈥?reported $40.8 million in revenue, about the same level as in 2017.
The employee told the committee that Agalarov secretly requested the meeting through a Russian government official that the employee believed to be Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
Putin agreed to attend a pageant rehearsal but canceled at the last minute. Though Trump periodically claimed during the campaign that he knew Putin, there is no evidence the two men met until after Trump took office.

Rinat Akhmetshin, a former Soviet soldier and Russian-American lobbyist who attended the meeting, told the committee that Trump Jr. had opened the session by getting straight to the point:

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.
Elite Kids Tyler Higbee Jersey Ryan wasn’t the only one missing Kyle Shanahan’s mastery last season. Freeman and Coleman were relative afterthoughts in the passing game, as Sarkisian failed to take advantage of mismatches in space. Falcons fans might have just one more year to appreciate this talented tandem, with Coleman poised to reach free agency in 2019. Kenneth Acker Youth jersey
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. ( Brady later denied the report ). Longtime Giants quarterback Eli Manning has said that it’s not his job to mentor young quarterbacks. 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.

I was surprised when they took a quarterback because I thought that maybe in the third round, you know you can get some really good football players that can help this team now, Roethlisberger said. Nothing against Mason. I think he’s a great football player.
Before the draft, the NFL’s media company pushed this opinion from an unnamed offensive coordinator regarding quarterback Lamar Jackson: He will not be able to play [quarterback] in this league 鈥?mark my words. When he throws, he hopes.
Yes, mark the words of someone whose provided the words under the cover of anonymity, so it’s impossible to ever tell that person, Your words were the wrong words.
One guy who may already be ready to unmark the words of the unnamed assistant coach is Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who praised Jackson’s throwing skills nine days after making him a first-round draft pick.
On track for another season in the vicinity of .500 through mid-February, Portland caught fire during a 13-game winning streak that propelled the Blazers into the top half of the Western Conference standings. Terry Stotts’ defensive scheme, built around preventing high-value shots and forcing 2-pointers outside the paint, has turned Portland’s liability into a top-10 unit.
The playoffs will be Ryan Murray Jersey the Blazers’ opportunity to prove that the combination of improved defense and scoring provided by the guard tandem of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum makes them a threat to the West’s elite.

Pop quiz, what team leads the majors in stolen bases? Yes, the Nationals are the runaway leader with 27 through April 24, six ahead of the White Sox. Trea Turner was expected to run, and he is with nine steals, tied for the team lead with Michael Taylor. Even if Turner drops to the two-hole when Adam Eaton returns, Martinez has seen enough to let him keep running. While it seems obvious Martinez should let his speedsters run, it’s still comforting to have it witnessed in the box score.

The Seahawks have always had a thing for big corners. Even if they鈥檙e not corners.
He鈥檚 got all of the tools that you鈥檙e looking for. He鈥檚 real long. He鈥檚 feet are really quick and light and he鈥檚 got terrific speed. And he鈥檚 already shown all of the abilities to make the plays by playing safety for all of those years, the tackles, the hits and the plays on the ball and all of that. That鈥檚 not even a concern of mine. Can he take to the discipline of Authentic Mike Evans Jersey it? Will he sit there and understand how it works?
Womens Trea Turner Jersey He showed like he really understood right off the bat. So it was a very good demonstration of what the future could hold. I was really pleased with that.
Of course, it takes more than being the size of Richard Sherman to play like Richard Sherman, and not all of their projects pan out. But in a year of transition, they鈥檙e looking at all their options.
They pay him for the segments, that鈥檚 obvious. But they鈥檙e can鈥檛 be paying a $20-million-per-year guy enough to justify the problems that often arise from the answers he provides in a setting where he is far more relaxed, casual, and loquacious than when he鈥檚 at a press conference or standing with a bunch of microphones in his face in the locker room.
The biggest and most obvious headline coming from Friday鈥檚 visit by Roethlisberger to 93.7 The Fan arose from his comments about his reaction to the team鈥檚 decision to burn a 2018 third-round pick on a quarterback. Near the end of the 20-minute interview, the issue comes up again from the perspective of the team鈥檚 2017 fourth-round quarterback.
Here was the question: How about Josh Dobbs? A guy that gets picked last year as a fourth-rounder, now he might feel like he鈥檚 getting squeezed out or he鈥檚 the odd man out. Have you talked to him about his situation now with this team?

The Cleveland Indians have struggled on offense to begin the season, only six times (in 23 games through April 26) scoring as many as five runs, the third-fewest such instances in the majors, but things could be looking up for their bats entering Week 5.
That’s great news for Jose Ramirez, a .320/.363/.560 hitter against lefties since the beginning of last season, Francisco Lindor, .298/.356/.512 in the same split, and Edwin Encarnacion, .228/.382/.426. For those seeking a weekly plug-in — especially those going with the streaming-catchers strategy in ESPN standard leagues — Yan Gomes (96.6 percent available) is well worth adding considering his .248/.333/.504 slash line against lefties since last season.
The then-36-year-old offensive coordinator hugged his Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, Tim Tebow, one last time and left for Starkville, Mississippi, where he’d settle in for the long haul of rebuilding a floundering Mississippi State program that had averaged less than four wins in its previous eight seasons. Its facilities were widely regarded as among the worst in the SEC, and the roster was in need of a significant upgrade, having failed to sniff a top-25 finish in any of its previous three recruiting classes. And if all that wasn’t daunting enough, Mullen’s wife, Megan, was due to give birth to their first child in a matter of weeks.
He has a special live-dribble package, and his ability to go get his midrange jumper at will, along with his positional size, have allowed him to remain a scoring threat in the half court despite playing almost exclusively inside the arc.
He maintains fairly sound mechanics when he’s in his comfort zone — in or just outside the paint with the ability to use his dribble to generate rhythm and confidence. While his release point is still different than when he shot 41.3 percent from 3 with Washington, his progress is noticeable, and the results should continue to improve as his career progresses.
The limited range is hurting Fultz more off the ball. He rarely spots up beyond the 3-point line, either diving to the rim or finding a body to screen. His body language doesn’t exactly suggest that J.J. Redick should fire a quick swing, even though he’s wide open:
Where Mississippi State was a slow build that allowed Mullen to lie in the weeds of the SEC and compete at a high level once every two or three years, Florida is the opposite. It isn’t a “developmental program,” as he described his previous job. With an abundance of resources, history and expectations, he had to hit the ground running in his return to Gainesville.
