He may be a 6-foot-5 former defensive end, but Michael Strahan says that the first time he came to New York he was “scared to death.”

The Texas native says on the syndicated show “In Depth With Graham Bensinger,” which airs this weekend, “I remember being in the car — the taxis are driving crazy, the horns, there are people everywhere. And I thought Houston was fast.”

The “GMA” host, whose first NFL gig was with the Giants in the early ’90s, said that on his first visit, “I just went to my hotel room, stayed in my room until they sent someone to pick me up and take me where I needed to go.”

The Reds are 2-12 (or worse) for the first time since 1931. Their minus-49 run differential is the worst in the majors, and their minus-47 through their first 14 games is the worst in franchise history. At this pace, the Reds will pick in the top five of the MLB draft in four consecutive years (2016 to 2019). — Woolums

As terrible as the Marlins are, can they afford to give Lewis Brinson a full season’s worth of patience if he fails to make any progress? His .316 OPS through Sunday is worst in the NL, he has yet to register an extra-base hit, his well-hit average of .049 suggests he isn’t even making hard contact, and he’s whiffing more than 30 percent of the time. — Kahrl

Jefferson injured his shoulder during the Gators’ spring game on Saturday.

Jefferson arrived at Florida as a five-star prospect and the nation’s No. 2 defensive end in the 2015 class. He considered leaving early for the NFL after last season but opted to return to the Gators for his senior year.

In three seasons at Florida, Jefferson has registered 28.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. He led the Gators in both categories last year (13.5 TFLs, 4.5 sacks).

With Florida utilizing a 3-4 scheme under new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, Jefferson had lined up as the Gators’ edge rusher this spring.

If Jefferson’s injury sidelines him for the early part of the 2018 season, the Gators likely will turn to junior defensive linemen Jabari Zuniga and Jachai Polite, who have combined for 25.5 TFLs and 13 sacks over the past two seasons, to help out on the outside. Junior Antonneous Clayton and redshirt freshman Zachary Carter also could get reps at Jefferson’s position.

Dak Prescott Jersey: Dez Bryant’s release ‘not my decision’

Dez Bryant was irked Friday night following his release for, among other things, not being named captain during his nine-year tenure in Dallas.
Olympic Hockey Authentic Women's Justin Faulk Nike Team USA Jersey: 2014 White #72 Home
The former Cowboys receiver told NFL Network’s Jane Slater regarding the Garrett Guys who he claims are to blame partially for his release, Little do they know is, you know, they can wear that ‘C’ all they want to, but in that locker room … they know who they communicate with. Everybody knows where the real love is at. I’m not throwing anybody under the bus, but that’s the difference between me and them.
Game Kids Greg Olsen Jersey
Anthony Averett, Alabama (5-11, 183): In his聽two years as a starter, he established himself as a solid if unspectacular cover corner. His game depends more on sticking with a receiver throughout the route than making a play on the ball, and he will need to fill out his frame.聽Projected: Round 2

Rashaan Gaulden, Tennessee (6-1, 197): A 4.61-second 40 at the combine could prove Joe Carter Womens Jersey to be an anchor on his stock, or at least a harbinger of聽a move to safety. But Gaulden proved to be both physical and fluid against the Southeastern Conference’s best receivers, and he should find the field early in nickel packages.聽Projected: Round 3-4

M.J. Stewart, North Carolina (5-11, 200): His 41 career pass breakups set a UNC record, tying him with Wisconsin’s Nick Nelson for most in this draft class. Stewart might be a candidate to move to safety given his lack of lack of explosiveness, but teams will find a way to utilize his savvy route recognition and tenacious style.聽Projected: Round 3-4

The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year also skipped all of last year’s voluntary workouts, was a no-show for mandatory minicamp drills, and then held out from training camp.

Rams general manager Les Snead told the Times the team and Donald have a timeline for working out an extension.

The goal is still the same. Make Aaron Donald a Ram for a long, long time, Snead said.

Dak Prescott Jersey says released Dez Bryant is ‘a hard guy to replace’

Bill Bates Authentic Jersey Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has exchanged text messages with Dez Bryant since the wide receiver’s release from the franchise on Friday.
Youth Lance Lynn Authentic Grey Majestic Jersey: MLB St. Louis Cardinals #31 Road Cool Base
It’s sad news. That’s a brother to me, Prescott said from a women’s clinic he was hosting at Episcopal Parish School in Dallas. Put the football stuff behind you, and what he meant to me as a person, what Womens Tony Snell Jersey he meant to me as a brother, it’s tough to see him go. It shows you it’s a business. All it does is motivate me and puts all this in perspective. Just got to go to work.

Game Youth Casey Cizikas Jersey After taking a pay cut three times to remain with the Patriots, wide receiver Danny Amendola told ESPN’s Mike Reiss on Friday that he signed with the Miami Dolphins this offseason after realizing Bill Belichick’s contract offer wouldn’t come close.

I mean, I’m sure he’s hearing stuff, and I’m sure he’s getting it from a lot of different ways, so I mean, I’m not going to finger-point at anybody, Prescott said. I’m not going to get upset for who he’s pointing at or who he thinks did this. So I mean, as I said, it’s a business, and it’s part of it.

Here’s what I think. (I think there’s a chance some of you may not care what I think.) Unless and until the Giants and Beckham reach an agreement on a long-term deal, a trade can still happen.

Beckham showed up this week for offseason workouts. The time is right to work something out. If it doesn’t happen before OTAs or training camp, Beckham could boycott.

Bailey spoke to the television station despite her jaw being wired shut. She said Boykin dragged her to the bathroom to try to clean her up after the incident, and that he later drove her to the hospital. But when hospital staff questioned her, he left the hospital and didn’t return.

His first suggestion was to say that I fell. Then he suggested that I got beat up by a girl, or jumped. Then he suggested that I fell again, she said. He’s saying basically since we’ve already been in a case we don’t need nothing else. And of course his football career is on the line. That’s his main goal, just ‘my football career is on the line.

I think things have been productive up until this point, Ryan said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. As far as a time frame of anything like that, it will shake out. It will handle itself. I don’t Demaryius Thomas Authentic Jersey know if it will be today or tomorrow. Or in a couple of weeks, but I really think we are moving in the right direction. I’m excited to be here and that’s the biggest thing. All of those things will take care of itself.
Mens Colt McCoy Jersey
Making Watson’s involvement in the offseason program more important is that O’Brien plans to implement a new offense, one that is even better suited to Watson’s skills. Given the speed with which he picked up last year’s offense after he was abruptly thrust into the starting role, any advance preparation should serve only to make him better than he was as a rookie 鈥?and as a rookie he was beyond great.

McVay was on ESPN Los Angeles to discuss the deal that brought Cooks to Los Angeles as the newest weapon on offense and said he’s always been a fan of the wideout’s ability.

On Thursday’s PFT Live, we tried to make sense of the Ravens’ decision to sign quarterback Robert Griffin III. Is he a normal backup quarterback, whose job it will be support the starter and play only if absolutely necessary? Is it to be a potential alternative to the starter?

Most 2014 first-rounders still waiting for long-term deals

Of those, the absence of a new contract for players like Clowney, Mack, Beckham, and Donald has become glaringly conspicuous. Donald skipped all of training camp last year to no avail; most recently, he has seen the team give $14 million to Ndamukong Suh for 2018. Beckham skipped the offseason program a year ago, suffered an ankle injury during the preseason, broke his leg in Week Five, and now finds himself the subject not of a long-term extension but trade rumors.

It’s the only NFL team Gay has ever known, playing his entire career in Pittsburgh after the Steelers made him a fifth-round pick in 2007. But he played only 27 percent of the defensive snaps last season.

Gay finished his Steelers career, playing 176 games with 102 starts. He made 13 interceptions and 89 pass breakups.

Babcock’s words seemed to echo those from around the league and all of sports Saturday.

“Our thoughts are with the players, families, coaches, team management and all those throughout the community who have been affected by the tragedy involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement. “The NHL mourns the passing of those who perished and offers strength and comfort to those injured while traveling to play and be part of a game they all love.”

Chris Simms and yours truly discussed the subject during Thursday’s PFT Live, with a three-round draft aimed at finding the right fit. The results show that I made the right choices, and that Simms, while making an admirable effort, was way, way off.

Check out the video, and drop your own thoughts in the comments.

“Everybody has the right to make their own decision, but my truth, I never quit on my team, I never abandoned anybody. I don’t know where they’re coming from with ‘he quit at USC.’ I don’t know where that came from, that was made up. That’s a narrative that’s wrong.”

Still, Cravens seems to be acutely aware of the risks of football. For now, he’s willing to continue to accept them.buccaneers_037

Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre’s single in the fourth was his 3,060th career hit, matching Craig Biggio for 23rd on the all-time list. … Joey Gallo has 10 RBI after driving in two runs for Texas. … Elvis Andrus homered in the ninth for Texas, his second of the season.

Authentic Womens Masahiro Tanaka Jersey While there may be more money for Suh with the Jets, he will have to make a decision about whether this late in his career he wants to join a team that is considered to be rebuilding.

Suh was a three-time All-Pro in five seasons with the Lions before signing a six-year, $114 million contract with Miami in 2015. He had 15.5 sacks in three seasons with the Dolphins and has made just one Pro Bowl since 2014.

Against playoff LeBron, shots of the same average quality have an eFG of 47 percent, Christian Dvorak Authentic Jersey or 5.5 percent worse than average. Playoff LeBron is more effective than regular-season LeBron at reducing his opponents’ ability to convert shots, and he’s more effective in part because he contests 4 percent more shots per 100 possessions in the playoffs than he does in the regular season.

A bogey on the par-4 13th was followed with a double-bogey on 14 and back-to-back bogeys on 15 and 16 to push the four-time Pro Bowl selection to 5 over on the day.

I hit two poor tee balls. I just didn’t commit to it and it put me in a tough spot to just make a par, Romo told the Golf Channel after his round. Ultimately over 18 holes and 72, your flaws start to show at some point. But that’s why you compete, so you can go practice.

Romo finished his round with two pars to stay at 5 over and walk off the course 14 strokes behind leader Brice Garnett and tied for 108th.

I hit a lot of good shots and ended up a couple times in some poor spots, but you learn the golf course as you play it throughout the week, Romo said. We had it going for a little bit. We were close.

Romo tees off his second round at 1 p.m. ET on Friday.

Game Womens Vladimir Konstantinov Jersey The NFL is investigating a photo released on social media that is claiming to be a leak of the Tennessee Titans’ new navy blue uniforms, a league source confirmed to ESPN.

The Titans are set to unveil their new uniforms, which will feature jersey and helmet changes, during a downtown Nashville street party on Wednesday night.

The Titans and NFL have no official comment on the possible jersey leak or ongoing investigation. The Tennessean was the first to report the investigation.

With Tannehill set to return in 2018 and some veteran leadership added to the mix like Frank Gore and Danny Amendola, perhaps the Dolphins will be ready to bounce back. But the culture change might not be over yet.

He believed that the sexual desire men felt when looking at a woman who was not their wife was due to the vixen casting magic spells to tempt them. As punishment, these sexual sirens must be, if not beheaded, drowned, or hanged, at least fired from their cheerleading jobs. Bailey Davis, the 22-year-old former New Orleans Saints cheerleader, was recently fired for violating team social media rules by posting an Instagram photo of herself in one-piece lingerie that shows as much skin as a one-piece swimsuit in a Nordstrom’s ad, and a lot less than their cheerleading outfits.

Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk has put a lot of resources and promotion into the new uniforms, which will be put into service during the team’s 20th season under the Titans nickname.

Media outlets reported that Brees and his wife, Brittany, filed suit on Monday in California against Vahid Moradi, who operates CJ Charles Jewelers in San Diego. Brees claims jewelry he purchased as investments, including a blue-diamond ring that cost about $8.2 million, appraised for $9 million less than he paid for the pieces.

Golden Tate Jersey is one of the best bargains in football. And it’s about to expire.

Ask Matt Patricia what he likes about his offense, and he’ll start with the quarterback. And given Matthew Stafford has played the last couple years, that’s understandable.

But let him talk long enough — and that guy loves to talk — and, man, does it become apparent just how much he loves his receivers in general, and Golden Tate in particular.

He has so much ability, and he’s a really good kid. Mora believes Rosen would benefit more by being groomed under an experienced veteran, but he possesses all the skills and intangibles to be the franchise quarterback teams seek at the top of the draft. Josh, I think, without a doubt, is the number one quarterback in the draft. He’s a franchise-changer. He’s got the ability to have an immediate impact. His arm talent, intelligence, and his ability to see the game and diagnose the game is rare. He’d come to the sidelines after a play and it was uncanny – he could right away say exactly why he made every decision, said Mora.
Elite Mens Borje Salming Jersey
Lamar Jackson plays quarterback. That shouldn’t change at the NFL level, at least not until some unlikely fork comes up far down the road and, in true Terrelle Pryor fashion, he’s forced to make a tough decision.

The main Andrew Ladd Authentic Jersey thing I regret is apologizing, McNair told the Wall Street Journal.

He said he was referring to team executives overstepping their bounds in dealing with owners last year, rather than kneeling players, when he said the word inmates.

Limited Womens Deryk Engelland Jersey I really didn’t have anything to apologize for, McNair said.

Since the comment, which McNair made amid the Colin Kaepernick-inspired anthem demonstration debate that tore through the NFL, he has emerged as the face of hardline team owners. McNair was recently deposed by Kaepernick’s lawyers as part of the quarterback’s collusion case against the league. Last month, the Texans denied a report that they would not sign any free agents who kneeled during the national anthem.

Clive Walford reportedly released by Oakland Raiders

During the coaches’ breakfast at the Annual League Meeting on Tuesday morning, Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden glowed about how much he loves tight ends and plans to use multiple TE sets this season. After lunch, Gruden’s team cut a tight end.

The Raiders are releasing Clive Walford, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.

Cutting the 26-year-old tight end saves Oakland $1.9 million on the salary cap. With Jared Cook set to count for almost $5.7 against the cap, keeping both TEs became untenable.

Josh Reddick: I think our mindset was, ‘It’s another guy, and we’re going to go out and play our game.’ We knew we had a good lineup, and it didn’t matter who was on the mound. We showcased that in the playoffs, especially in Game 1. No task is easy like that when you go up against guys like Chris Sale and Clayton Kershaw. Your task is never going to be easy.

Jim Crane: The first time I thought we had a chance of winning, I was sitting in Boston when Bregman hit the home run over the wall and got us back in the game. He came flying into the dugout and the whole place went crazy. I knew these guys were focused and they were working together. Just to see the excitement on the bench and in their faces, you knew they were not going to give up. And sure enough, they were able to pull the whole thing off.

Few receivers in the past 10 years—perhaps ever—have possessed Beckham’s raw abilities. The NFL’s best receivers today are Antonio Brown, Julio Jones and Beckham. His numbers speak for themselves:

Bregman made a gutsy and instinctive play when he threw home on a Todd Frazier chopper and beat Greg Bird by a hair to preserve a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning of the AL Championship Series clincher. The Astros went on to beat the Yankees 4-0 and advance to the World Series.

Jake Marisnick: Not a lot of people talk about it, but that’s one of the big plays that stood out for me. Just the way it happened. The throw. The play. It had to be perfect, and it was. It’s something that will stick with me forever.

A lot of us were yelling ‘One, one, one,’ [for first base], and he threw it home to get him. In our heads, we were thinking he didn’t have a chance. But in Alex’s head, there’s not a play he can’t make, and it paid off in the postseason. He has that confidence in himself to make any play on the field. If that play doesn’t happen, we might not get to the World Series.patriots_085

Teddy Bridgewater Jersey won’t say if his knee injury will affect his offseason work

Jets quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has only $500,000 guaranteed on his new contract, which means if he doesn’t look good in offseason work, the team could easily release him and walk away. So it’s not a great sign that he won’t say whether he’s confident his bad knee will allow him to go through offseason work.
Men's Adidas Portland Trail Blazers #27 Jusuf Nurkic Swingman Red Alternate NBA Jersey
Asked today by New York reporters whether he’ll be able to participate in spring workouts, Bridgewater declined to answer.

But while Bridgewater says he can’t wait, his answers suggest that it might be a wait of several months before Andy Janovich Jersey he’s participating in on-field drills.

He spent two years in the league, catching 45 passes for 594 yards with four touchdowns. Running back Ben Tate spent five season in the league split between four teams, most of which came with the Houston Texans , who drafted him in the second round. Tate, 29, ran for 942 yards as a rookie and has over 2,300 career yards in the big league. Lache Seastrunk was a force out of the backfield with Baylor in college and spent time on six NFL practice squads between 2014-16. Tight end Zach Sudfeld , brother of Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback Nate Sudfeld , started five games for the Jets in 2013 and 2014. Cornerback JaCorey Shepherd was a sixth-round pick of the Eagles in 2015, but suffered an ACL injury that derailed his rookie season. He bounced around the league as a kick returner as recently as last summer. Who else can you recall

The 37-year-old Watson caught 61 passes for the Ravens last year, showing he can still be a productive target in the passing game. He’d complement Travis Kelce and a diverse offense, which was bolstered by the acquisition of wide receiver Sammy Watkins.
