Sean Payton expects a Drew Brees Jersey deal soon

It’s been six weeks and four days since the season ended for the Saints, and since quarterback Drew Brees first said he’ll return to the team in 2018. Now, thirteen days away from his first crack at unrestricted free agency since signing with New Orleans, some wonder whether he’ll end up moving on.

Saints coach Sean Payton does not. Payton told PFT Live on Thursday that he expects a deal to be done soon, a deal that will keep Brees in New Orleans.

Payton expressed confidence that agent Tom Condon and G.M. Mickey Loomis will get the situation worked out, which will put Brees under contract for a 13th season in New Orleans.

Rob Ramage Mens Jersey Given Bridgewater’s Derick Brassard Youth Jersey contract situation — he is only guaranteed around $500K of a deal worth up to $15 million and is at risk of being cut during training camp — he’ll have to prove a lot in the lead up to training camp. Already behind 38-year-old Josh McCown on the depth chart, Bridgewater could fall behind whichever rookie quarterback the Jets select with the third overall pick in April’s draft if he’s not back to the player he was by minicamp and OTAs.

Briean Boddy-Calhoun Mens Jersey Bridgewater was undaunted by this possibility in talking to reporters, declaring, Being an athlete and ultimate competitor, as a player, I welcome competition.

Teddy’s in luck. He’ll have plenty of competition under center in New York come July, and August, and September, and so on.

Mayfield, who won the Heisman Trophy last year, is a polarizing prospect. His on-field talent can’t be denied, but there are questions about his off-field attitude and his height (just 6 feet).

In addition to the Jets, Mayfield told that he has private visits lined up with the Giants and Browns. The Browns, Dolphins and Saints plan to have a workout with him in Norman.

The Jets’ interest in Mayfield is not surprising. Between now and the draft, they will likely workout and have a visit with every top quarterback in the draft. They did it last year with Deshaun Watson and Mitch Trubisky, but ended up drafting neither one.

Teddy Bridgewater Jersey is officially excited to be a Jet

The newest member of the Jets’ collection of quarterbacks officially signed his contract Sunday and declared he is ready for what comes next.
Men's Reebok Martin St. Louis Premier White Away NHL Jersey: New York Rangers #26
I’m excited about the direction we’re headed in, Teddy Bridgewater said in comments to the Jets official website. I’m excited to be a part of something that can be very special and I just look forward to getting to work with the guys and a great year.

Bridgewater started 12 games as a rookie for the Vikings and was named the Pepsi Rookie of the Year. He was the starting quarterback in 2015 as the Vikings won the NFC North title and was selected to his first Pro Bowl.

The Jets made a strong move in free agency to land Kirk Cousins, offering him $90 million in guaranteed money, but Cousins opted to take slightly less ($84 million guaranteed) to sign with the Vikings.

Martin was brought into custody on Feb. 23 hours after a photo and accompanying message were discovered on his Instagram account, featuring a shotgun, shell casings and what appeared to be targeted threats.

When you’re a bully victim & a coward, your options are Mika Zibanejad Jersey suicide, or revenge, the post read, along with the names of former high school classmates and Dolphins teammates, Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey, all of whom Martin had accused of bullying him in the past.

Elite Womens Lucas Duda Jersey The threatening nature of the post prompted the Los Angeles-area high school Martin attended as a teenager, Harvard-Westlake, to close out of concern for its students.
Elite Womens Detroit Lions Jersey
Martin triggered an investigation into the Dolphins’ locker-room culture in 2013 after he publicly accused some of his teammates, mainly Incognito and Pouncey, of harassing him and mocking his background. Incognito was subsequently suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season.

Martin, 28, played one season with the 49ers after the Dolphins traded him in the offseason. He attempted one more comeback with the Panthers in 2015 before announcing his retirement months later.

Gettleman’s obsession with building a kick-ass offensive line doesn’t end with Solder, of course.

The Green Bay Packers essentially traded Jordy Nelson for Jimmy Graham, salary and all.

From here, it looks like an upgrade.

But it’s still hard not to think they would have been better off paying the extra few million dollars to sign Sammy Watkins or Allen Robinson at receiver, and bringing in a starting tight end cheaper than Graham.

But both offered youth – each turns 25 this summer – and big-play ability. Watkins has the speed to stretch defenses, a career average of 15.9 yards per catch and 25 touchdown receptions despite playing with mostly subpar quarterbacks. Robinson had 14 touchdowns and a 17.5-yard average two years ago.

Lining up one of those two across from Davante Adams had the potential to keep defensive coordinators in the league up late at night.

Or maybe Gutekunst chose Graham at the $10 million he saved by cutting Nelson because he needed cap space for the offer sheet he presented Friday to cornerback Kyle Fuller, who had the Bears’ transition tag. But if that’s the case, the GM was saving the money for a Hail Mary, considering the Bears had far more cap room than the Packers. It predictably failed.

The Bears quickly matched so the Packers’ work was for naught. All they did was negotiate the contract for Chicago, and really they’re lucky the Bears didn’t keep them in limbo for the allowed five days. The Packers still have a couple of big holes at their top three cornerback spots, and not much left in free agency to pick over.

Gutekunst’s first week of free agency ends with Graham signed and Nelson cut on offense, and Muhammad Wilkerson added to the Packers’ defense.

Wilkerson, 28, was a bargain at $5 million plus incentives. Though he flamed out after signing a big contract with the New York Jets two years ago, he was talented enough to get 10 sacks in 2013 and 12 sacks in ’15. If he rekindles his fire, he, Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark could give the Packers one of the best rotations of inside rushers in the NFL.

Panthers DE Julius Peppers Jersey returning for 17th NFL season

Elite Kids Kevin Faulk Jersey Julius Peppers will play in 2018.
Majestic John Jaso Authentic Women's Jersey - MLB Pittsburgh Pirates #28 Green Salute to Service
The Panthers announced Wednesday the defensive end will return for a 17th NFL season at the age of 38.

DeAngelo Hall Authentic Jersey According to the team, Peppers signed a one-year deal to play in his 10th season at Carolina.

Peppers had 11 sacks last season and joined Bruce Smith (200 sacks), Reggie White (198), Kevin Greene (160) and Chris Doleman (150 1/2) as the only players with 150 or more sacks since 1982, when sacks became an official NFL stat.

He was worth 2.8 points of field position for the Jets in 2017.

Tampa has given him a three-year, $9.8 million deal with $3.8 million guaranteed.

If this one fails, the Bucs might want to start picking random fans out of the crowd.

DE Trent Murphy, Bills Grade: B- Murphy has had a strange career.

As the full-time starter across from Ryan Kerrigan in 2015, Murphy was able to rack up only 3.5 sacks and 10 knockdowns.

We have very recently become aware of a video accusing Dr. Reilly of sexually abusing a former employee of his Jaromir Jagr Youth jersey medical practice, John Higgins, Rays senior vice president of administration and general counsel, said in a statement, via the Tampa Bay Times . We have ended our contractual relationship with him, and we have also alerted the St. Petersburg Police Department and Major League Baseball of this situation.

The video, titled The Importance Of Sharing My Story Of Sexual Abuse, is over 10 minutes long and details how Reilly touched the woman inappropriately and tried to kiss her while she was a teenager working in his St. Petersburg, Fla., office. The woman added that the abuse lasted over a period of about three years.

I know he’s done this to other people, the woman said in the video. I’ve debated making a video for years. I finally thought if I have to put my face out there, if it’s going to save another person from being sexually abused from this person, then so be it.

NFL free agency rumors: Richard Sherman Jersey to meet with 49ers and Lions, gets interest from 5 other teams

Game Matt Cullen Jersey
Richard Sherman was released by the Seahawks on Friday, but his time in free agency may be brief.
Elite Women's Nelson Agholor Midnight Green Home Jersey: NFL Nike Philadelphia Eagles #13 Vapor Untouchable
The cornerback told ESPN less than 24 hours after his release became official that he has already received preliminary interest from the Titans, Lions, Raiders, Texans, Bucs and Packers, but his first visit is with the 49ers.

Would I go to a young secondary that is like we were when we were younger and help them grow and help them advance? Sure, if the number looks right and the Brett Favre Jersey situation is comfortable for me and my family.

The Bears have to do something here with Prince Amukamara and Kyle Fuller becoming unrestricted free agents. They can diffuse some of that in securing restricted free agent Bryce Callahan. Marcus Cooper, however, isn’t meant to be more than a backup and could be cut.

Fuller will be hard to re-sign, so the Bears will lead the pack of teams interested in signing Malcolm Butler. The Patriots corner would be a great fit in Fangio’s hybrid coverage, as he can play both man-to-man and zone effectively.

ESPN had reportedly offered the former NFL quarterback $10 million annually to join its MNF broadcast. However, Fox Sports had reportedly dangled a similar offer in front of Manning to join its new Thursday Night Football crew.

Marchand said sources indicated Manning has not decided whether or not to accept Fox’s offer, but he prefers that to the MNF gig because he would not have to work weekends.

Manning had been considered ESPN’s top choice to replace MNF analyst Jon Gruden, who left this offseason to coach the Raiders. Marchand notes ESPN is likely considering several internal candidates, including Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss and Louis Riddick, to fill the role. Outside candidates might include former Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Kurt Warner and Brett Favre.

Michael Bennett Jersey traded from Seahawks to Eagles. Why both teams made this move

Michael Bennett’s five-year tenure in Seattle has ended after the team has traded him to the Eagles, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Seahawks will also be sending a seventh-round pick, and will be getting a fifth-round pick and wideout Marcus Johnson in return.
Nike Men's Dontrelle Inman Elite Navy Blue Home Jersey - Los Angeles Chargers NFL #15
They had a great run with the likes of Bennett and other fearsome players on one of the league’s most formidable defenses. In the last five years, the Seahawks made the playoffs four times and appeared in the Super Bowl twice, including a win in 2013 season. The defense ranked in the top 11 every season Bennett has played in Seattle.

The Eagles had a good defense last season, but they were going to be in the market for a new pass rusher. It appears instead of looking towards the draft, they made the move for Bennett.

Come get Thompson before he demands a trade (just kidding). Golden State’s other sniper is enjoying the best shooting season of his career, which is insane considering he’s freaking Klay Thompson. He’s a flamethrower off the bench.

Let’s get weird. Westbrook’s speed, athleticism and explosion are tailor-made for the All-Star Game, but this pick really needs to happen so we can see Westbrook vs. Durant on a switch.

The Piesman is a prestigious award, and it’s no surprise that the 2016 recipient, Pitt’s Brian O’Neill, also made a name for himself at the combine.

O’Neill posted the best 40 time, 4.82, and three-cone drill, 7.14, of any offensive lineman who participated in drills. If you watched him play in college, you’re probably not surprised. He had two touchdowns in the three times he got to touch the ball in college. He very nearly had a third, but he was ruled down at the 1-yard line, and Pitt punched it in on the next play.

Josh Hill Jersey The Evander Kane-effect has been significant for Pavelski. In three games since Kane joined him on the top line, Pavelski has three goals, four assists and a plus-6 rating. That kind of production puts him back into elite territory for the first time this season, as it’s been a down-year on the whole. His current pace of 22 goals and 66 points is a five-year low, however, he could eclipse those numbers as his 82-game pace doesn’t factor in Cam Ward Authentic Jersey his recent boost in production. After only 12 points in the first 23 games of the season, Pavelski has 41 points in the past 43 games.

Celtics legend Jo Jo White dead at 71

Celtics legend and Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer Jo Jo White passed away at 71 after a battle with cancer, the Celtics announced Tuesday.

A seven-time All-Star and MVP of the 1976 NBA Finals, White had his No. 10 jersey retired by the Celtics in 1982.

Sheary began the game on the fourth line, but played alongside Crosby for parts of the night — and benefited greatly. Crosby assisted on both goals to help Sheary break out of a slump, as he entered without a goal in 15 straight contests.

“He goes to tough areas and plays bigger than he is,” Crosby said of the 5-foot-8 Sheary.

“Thrilled for Conor,” Sullivan said. “Essentially what I told him is, `Nothing lasts forever.”

Travis Konecny and Jakub Voracek had goals for the Flyers, who lost their fourth in a row.

“We didn’t play a complete game 5-on-5,” Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol said. “We made some mistakes.”

The teams combined for six goals in an electrifying second period.

“In addition to the lateness of the check, what elevates this hit to merit supplemental discipline is the significant head contact that occurs and the force with which it is delivered,” the league’s video explanation said.

The fact that Nielsen was injured was taken into account, as was Backes’ clean record.

The suspension without pay will cost Backes $96,774.

“I think we played that team like where they are in the standings (seventh in the Atlantic Division). I think we forgot that we’re still in the NHL and every team’s good with the parity in this league.”

Goals by Mike Hoffman on the power play in the second period and Matt Duchene in the third gave Ottawa a 2-1 lead before Seguin tied it with his 36th goal of the season.

Seguin first scored from the left of the net on a narrow angle. His shot went in off Ottawa defenseman Ben Harpur’s skate.

Play was stopped with 11:05 left in the first period after Bishop and Dallas defenseman Dan Hamhuis fell in a heap in front of the goal. A trainer attended to Bishop, who stayed in the game but didn’t return for the second period.

Panthers’ Christian McCaffrey Jersey helped man, 72, after critical fall

Add saving lives to the list of talents for Carolina Panthers multifaceted running back Christian McCaffrey.
Youth Nike Miami Dolphins #89 Julius Thomas Limited Olive/USA Flag 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
Authentic Mens Patrick Peterson Jersey The eighth pick of the 2017 draft was hiking with family and friends in Castle Rock, Colorado, on Saturday when they witnessed 72-year-old Dan Smoker Sr. fall about 20 feet onto a rock while hiking with his grandson, Eli Smoker.

McCaffrey immediately called 911 and then rushed with others in his group to help Smoker Sr., who at the hospital was determined to have suffered a broken femur, pelvis and neck, fractured ribs and internal bleeding on the brain.

When they introduced themselves, Eli and his dad hadn’t figured out that McCaffrey was the star football player for the Panthers and the son of former Denver Broncos receiver Ed McCaffrey.

I can’t say I’d recognize Christian without his football gear on, Dan Smoker told the website. Around here, Valor Christian is a popular high school, and I knew that Ed McCaffrey had just taken over as head coach there. We were talking and they had mentioned that they went to Valor, and we were looking there because our son loves football as well.

At that point, Lisa chimed in and said, ‘Well, we may have a contact.’

McCaffrey, who led the Panthers with 80 catches this past season, has kept in touch with the Smokers since via text.

Eli was such a trooper, man, McCaffrey said. I was traumatized, and I had no relation.

Now they’re bonded by a moment none will forget.

Truly a blessing that we turned the corner at that exact moment and we could be there for him, McCaffrey said. I don’t know what would have happened … We were lucky to be at the right place at the right time.

Landry has informed the Miami Dolphins that he’ll sign the non-exclusive franchise tag placed on him last month, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. On Friday, a source told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he plans to sign the tag early next week.

Landry also has formally notified the NFL Players Association of his plans to sign, according to a source.

The non-exclusive tag allows the Dolphins and Landry to work out a trade with another team if all parties agree on compensation. If no trade is reached and Landry has signed the tag, the Dolphins can pay him for the franchise year or explore an extension.

Landry and the Dolphins exchanged contract offers before Jeff Heuerman Jersey the team tagged him Feb. 20.

Landry, 25, has 400 receptions, 22 touchdowns and three Pro Bowl appearances since he entered the league in 2014.

For Atlanta, this marked their fifth game in seven days, their third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set. It also required late-night travel across a time zone. Ouch. The Hawks faced Milwaukee the night before, then headed out afterward — losing an hour along the way — for Detroit.

It’s really the $64,000 question for all three of those guys. Can Sam stay healthy, can Teddy get back to where he was, can Case do what he did again, Zimmer said Thursday at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. We have a lot of question marks.

Bridgewater was a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2014 and was named the NFL Rookie of the Year. Following a Pro Bowl season in 2015, he entered 2016 with a lot of optimism, but a career-threatening knee injury cost him the 2016 season and most of 2017.

I love Teddy. I’ve said that before. He is a competitor; he’s got the heart of a Lion, Zimmer said Thursday. I’m hopeful for Teddy. I hope he has an outstanding career and I hope that it’s with me.

Following Bridgewater’s knee injury, the Vikings traded for Bradford, who went on to lead the NFL with a 71.6 percent completion rate and threw for 3,877 yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions.

Adam Gase says Ryan Tannehill Jersey is starting QB, talks tag for Jarvis Landry

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who hasn’t played in a game since December 2016, received a big vote of confidence Wednesday from coach Adam Gase.
Women's Replica Majestic Prince Fielder Royal Blue Alternate Jersey - #84 MLB Texas Rangers Cool Base
Ryan is going to be our starting quarterback, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon, Gase said at the scouting combine. I think that when we get back out there in spring and get going, I just know it’s going to be really good to have him back.

Jaromir Jagr Authentic Jersey Gase’s endorsement came amid speculation the Dolphins might take a quarterback with the 11th pick in the draft. He didn’t rule out that possibility, but Gase made it clear Tannehill is his quarterback for 2018.
Limited Womens Eddie Lacy Jersey
Gase said Tannehill is doing extremely well in his recovery, although he declined to provide a timetable for this return.

He’s always going to be ahead of where he’s supposed to be; he’s a physical freak, Gase said. He’s a physical freak, and we’ll just kind of play this one as the week goes on, throughout the offseason.

Really, for me, I won’t personally know until we get into those stages to where we can be out at practice, throwing. All I can do is hear things are going good, he’s moving around well, he’s able to do what he needs to do to play quarterback.

On the Browns, who hold the No. 1 and Cameron Artis-Payne Jersey No. 4 picks in the opening round and have gone 1-31 over the past two seasons, Barkley said it would be awesome” if Cleveland made him one of its picks.

That’s awesome, something bigger than you,” Barkley said. You go to a team like that, obviously they’ve had some rough years, but I think they’re a couple pieces away. They do have a lot of young talent, new offensive coordinator. … You want to be part of something like that, that’s something bigger than yourself, that’s something you leave a legacy of being part of something special.”

But Barkley has obviously done some homework about the teams at the top of the board. In the span of about 12 minutes, he referenced being a teammate of New York Giants players Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and Eli Manning; the fact that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck didn’t play last season because of a shoulder injury; and that he was a New York Jets fan growing up.

The Giants, Colts and Jets, respectively, have the second, third and sixth overall picks in April’s draft. The only team Barkley didn’t reference in the draft’s top six was the Denver Broncos, at No. 5.
