Eagles quarterback Nick Foles says he never turned down potential trade to Browns

Nick Foles didn’t know his name was involved in a potential trade with the Browns.

The Browns offered Philadelphia the 2018 NFL Draft’s 35th overall pick in exchange for Foles, according to a report from NFL.com earlier this month. The Eagles reportedly decided to decline the trade after Foles told the team he’d rather stay in Philadelphia.

There’s some risk in banking on a journeyman like Keenum as the Broncos’ unquestioned starter, but his breakout season with the Vikings last year was no joke. He completed 67.6 percent of his passes, tossed 22 touchdown passes and finished with a passer rating of 98.3. The Broncos will be in great shape in 2018 if he can repeat those numbers.聽

Keenum’s career numbers before 2017 suggest he might not, but he’ll have a good group of receivers and an elite defense to fall back on鈥攎uch like he had in Minnesota last season.聽

With that backdrop, here are 10 things you might not know about the CFL, lessons Johnny Football may also be getting a crash course in…

The Titans trade into this pick to catch Evans ahead of the Patriots and Steelers. He’s the third member of the Crimson Tide’s championship defense to be selected, and he’ll deliver immediately as a high volume tackler. This was Tennessee’s weakness between Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo. Evans projects as a long-term fixture and leader inside.

Wynn was projected as an interior line prospect, and although he’s athletic enough to fit what the Patriots do in their blocking scheme under Josh McDaniels, he’s more of a project to try to fill Nate Solder’s big cleats at left tackle. It’s a strange pick, given left tackle is the only current weak spot on their line as the Tom Brady window continues to shrink.

Johnny Manziel watches for much of first day of Tiger-Cats’ camp

Mike Golic doesn’t think Johnny Manziel will ever make it back to the NFL after signing with the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats. (1:52)

Johnny Manziel spent much of the first day of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ training camp as an observer.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner watched a lot of the session Sunday, a day after signing with the Canadian Football League club. Manziel threw while working with the five other quarterbacks and made short tosses to receivers, but knelt off to the side or stood with quarterbacks coach Dan Morrison during one-on-one pass drills and 7-on-7 sessions at Ron Joyce Stadium.

Gallup caught 176 passes for 2,685 yards and 21 touchdowns at Colorado State over the last two seasons. He joins a Cowboys receiver group that’s going to look much different than recent seasons thanks to Dez Bryant‘s departure and the addition of several new faces. That turnover should make a big role available to Gallup right away if he makes a smooth transition to the professional game.

The Cowboys also waived offensive lineman Jarron Jones and signed guard Damien Mama in other Monday moves.

Law enforcement will have the resources, monitoring and enforcement tools necessary to protect our fans and penalize bad actors here at home and abroad.”

It’s easy to understand why the NFL and other leagues would want to have one framework for gambling rather than as many as 50 different sets of rules in place. It’s also easy to understand why the league wants to find a way to take in money for their “intellectual property” and “reliable league data” in the form of integrity fees or some other avenue.

Tyronn Lue: Give credit to Tristan Thompson’s defense against Al Horford

Following a resounding 116-86 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love said that the key to the team getting back into the series has been Tristan Thompson’s defense on Boston Celtics All-Star Al Horford.

Tristan has always been great in stepping up and taking the challenge in any series, Love said. You’ve got to give a lot of credit to Tristan because Horford is really the one that makes them go. He can play a little bit of the point forward. He can do a lot of the intangibles that even for their team might not show up on the box score as well. But he did a great job on him tonight, and he’s done a great job on him the last two games.

With Thompson in the starting lineup in Game 2, Horford was limited to 15 points on 5-for-13 shooting.

He’s 37 now? God dang, Lue said. We’re playing him too many minutes. We need him, though. We need him.

Like a dad getting carded at the bar while visiting his child at college during parent’s weekend, Korver didn’t mind one bit that Lue got his age wrong.

In an interview on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN 98.7 FM, Stoudemire said that he’s in great shape and training as if he were returning to the NBA.

When asked if it were accurate to say that he is contemplating an NBA comeback, Stoudemire said, That would be reality.

Game Robert Thomas Jersey Stoudemire, who will play in Ice Cube’s Big3 basketball league this summer, averaged 18.9 points and 7.8 rebounds in 846 career games over 14 NBA seasons. He played for the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat.

The 6-foot-10 forward/center was named an All-Star six times and selected to two All-NBA first-teams, forming half of a formidable pick-and-roll duo in Phoenix with point guard Steve Nash. Stoudemire was also named 2003 NBA Rookie of the Year after entering the league directly from high school.

It’s that kind of series, said Tucker, who grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds in a team-high 44 minutes. I came out for 30 seconds and I went right back in. Coach told me, ‘They’re going with their guns, so we gotta match guns with guns.’

Carlos Dunlap opts to not attend Bengals OTAs

Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap is willing to lose $300,000, so he must be hoping for an even bigger payday.
Women's Keith Tandy Limited Red Nike Jersey: NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers #37 Rush Vapor Untouchable
According to Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Dunlap has continued his absence from Bengals workouts this offseason, by not volunteering for the first day of voluntary OTAs.

The 29-year-old Dunlap is entering the final year of the six-year, $40.6 million extension he signed in 2013, and he’s due to make $7 million this year.

Game Womens Dick Butkus Jersey This Ohtani usage plan was developed when extremely high levels of uncertainty existed around almost every detail of it. All player performance is difficult to predict, but in Ohtani’s case the uncertainty is doubled, then multiplied by the uncertain costs (fatigue, injury, unavailability) of performing in two exhausting roles. A lot of that uncertainty has now been eliminated, and the range of our remaining unknowns is much narrower. We know he’s a good major league pitcher and a good major league hitter. We know he’s capable of physically performing both roles in the same week (though we don’t know whether he’d be even better if he were allowed to focus Womens Trey Flowers Jersey his attention and energy on one role alone). We know, at least in the current plan, the limitations. We’ve cut a lot of the uncertainties.

Here’s where you rectify the situation, by watching the video and telling Simms, Stats, and the Twitter horde how wrong they each are. You also may learn a thing or two about the historical overlap between the CFL and the NFL.

Pryor’s 2017 season with Washington also ended because of an ankle injury and he required surgery to repair it before he hit the market as a free agent. Pryor’s lone season in D.C. was largely a bust as he caught just 20 passes in nine games after a 77-catch/1,007-yard 2016 season with the Browns.

But like the compliments that always seem to be with Rosen, McShay’s evaluation comes with a caveat because of the quarterback’s outspoken, unique and occasionally quirky personality.

Guys are getting paid a looot of money, Lions wide receiver Golden Tate said in a phone interview with the Free Press on Friday. There’s guys who aren’t even every-down receivers who are getting paid a lot of money, so that’s obviously refreshing as Womens Cameron Artis-Payne Jersey a receiver to see going into this market here soon.

Tate, who’s entering the final year of his contract with the Lions and hoping to sign an extension with team this summer, said his first reaction to Landry’s deal was, Whoa, and not just because it could impact the money he makes in 2019 and beyond.

The wide receiver market is very high right now, and it wasn’t very high when I came out when I was in free agency the first time, unfortunately, Tate said. It’s pretty exciting. It’s almost like, with these guys that are signing their first big deal, it’s been set. I would have never thought receivers today would be getting paid I guess what quarterbacks were getting paid just four years ago.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden sees Derrius Guice as ‘first-, second-down banger’ in running game

The Washington Redskins added another asset to their running game in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft with the selection of former LSU running back Derrius Guice. This has put him in a unique situation to carve out a significant role out of the backfield in his first campaign.

According to John Keim of ESPN, head coach Jay Gruden voiced that he sees Guice making more of an impact as an early-down running back due to the stable of players at the position on the roster.

He’s more of a first-, second-down banger. But I’ve seen him at his pro day catch the football. He can catch the football fine, but really, our role for him is quite easy to see. It’s first, second down.

Ingram led the Saints in rushing last season with 1,124 yards on 230 carries with 12 TDs.

Did these 5 plays convince Giants to draft Barkley?

However, what Martin says sets Barkley apart from other running backs in this year’s NFL Draft class and gives him the best chance of developing into a special player in the NFL, is his ability to be a consistently dynamic threat as a receiver.

In an offense that featured second-round pick tight end Mick Gesicki and Penn State’s all-time receptions leader DaeSean Hamilton, Barkley caught 102 passes for 1,195 yards and eight touchdowns over three seasons.

I think what makes him different is his unique combination, Martin said. Guys usually with that build, who are that good of runners, they’re not usually that good a receiver out of the backfield, because of the way they’re built. They’re not nimble enough to be a good receiver. He has that. With all of that, also.

Beyond his contributions on the field, Martin echoed Giants co-owner Steve Tisch’s sentiments that Barkley’s strong character off the field gives him a chance to leave his mark both on the Giants, and the city of New York.colts_076

Lions’ draft picks appear brimming with athleticism

The 2018 NFL draft is finally in the rear view and we no longer have to look at who the Detroit Lions may select, instead concentrating on who they selected. As this is head coach Matt Patricia’s first draft, we can safely assume the players are going to be fits for his coaching schemes.

Each ranging from very good to great athletically, each of the Lions’ picks seem cobbled together from historically great players.

One area that wasn’t talked about much are his incredibly long arms. At 33.5 inches, Walker is one of only 16 safeties since 2010 to have arms 33 inches or longer. It’s a small group, but it includes All-Pro Kam Chancellor, Pro Bowler Eric Reid, and quality starters such as Jamal Adams and George Iloka. Of that long-limbed group of defensive backs, Walker is the fastest.

Fourth-rounder Da’Shawn Hand was one of the Lions’ more athletic selections, registering a RAS of 8.90 out of 10. Now it’s up to his former position coach, Bo Davis, who currently holds the same role in Detroit, to tap that immense potential.

To be eligible for the 2019 NFL Draft, Lawrence would have to declare early, following his junior season at Clemson.

Lawrence 鈥?is a highly-skilled, big-bodied disruptive force on the interior, McShay says.

McShay has Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary going third to the New York Giants. Gary, too, would have to declare after his third college season.

Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson is not in McShay’s mock draft. In 2019 mock drafts published last week by SB Nation and CBS Sports, Patterson was listed as the No. 22 pick by the Chargers and the No. 24 selection by the Jaguars, respectively.

Limited Kids Wayne Gallman Jersey There was reasonable speculation the Lions would draft a tight end in the first three rounds, but the board didn’t fall that way.

By the time the Lions were back on the clock in the third round, the best available options were UCF’s Jordan Akins Noah Syndergaard Youth jersey and Indiana’s Ian Thomas.

The healthy version of Cousins would have gotten such a deal even if there is not much evidence he helps you win at the highest level. Some of that stain attaches itself to anyone who spends any time in Sacramento. But Cousins’ role in poisoning the culture there has been well-documented. He clashed with some — not all — coaches and teammates, and had the locker room on permanent egg shells. By all accounts, he has been a more congenial teammate in New Orleans, but no one is Mike Green Authentic Jersey ready to assume that persists long-term.

Little things matter in the postseason, and one sweet set has rippled across three playoff series — with perhaps even more to come.

New Orleans was better all season with Davis going solo. The twin towers setup shoehorned Cousins into a point-center role. He fared about as well as anyone could have hoped. He is supremely talented — unstoppable bulldozing the rim, accurate from 3-point range, a creative, pinpoint passer who can bring the ball up. A lot of his ground-bound, skill-based game can withstand a decline in athleticism.

When Cushing has been on the field in recent seasons, he hasn’t looked like a player with too much left in the tank. Given Jon Gruden’s desire to take the game back to 1998, the Raiders may be hoping that hopping in the time machine will remedy that.

SM : Listen, I’m not going to lie. It’s not ideal for us, right? Adding another network into the mix鈥?We once did this thing by ourselves. We thought we did it really well. We’ve always thought we’ve done it great. Again, it would be disingenuous for me to say, ‘That’s great news!’ But I think we’re so focused on just doing our job. Doing what we’ve done for almost forty years. Our focus always has, and always will be, on what we’re doing, and serving our fans. Continuing to raise our own game. Ultimately, I think our loyal fans will find us 鈥?and come to us for the Draft coverage they’ve expected all these years.

Malcolm Jenkins says sponsors have been reluctant to work with him over activism

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins knows he should be making plenty of off-field money right now. He knows he isn鈥檛 because of his activism.

Jenkins told Louisa Thomas of The Athletic that some sponsors have chosen to not work with him due to his prominent stance on political issues. But Jenkins is fine with that.

All of that was to be understood when I stepped into this realm, Jenkins said, via SportsBusiness Daily. To me, that鈥檚 worth it.

I told Hugh Culverhouse, 鈥榊ou draft me if you want, you鈥檙e going to waste a draft pick.鈥?I said, 鈥業 promise you that.’

Jackson, while playing for the Royals, re-entered the draft the following year and was selected by the Raiders in the seventh round.

Notre Dame鈥檚 Raghib Rocket Ismail was expected to be the top pick in the 1991 draft. But he had other intentions and instead signed a deal with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, where he could make more money.

The team announced Beadles鈥?release on Monday. Beadles spent the last two years with the team and started every game at right guard in 2016 before moving to a bench role for most of last season. He made one start at left guard before Laken Tomlinson took over the job and four at right tackle while Trent Brown was injured.

Saints players still digesting Mark Ingram suspension, eager for his return

Saints players have had only a day to digest the reality that they will be without starting running back Mark Ingram for the first four games of the 2018 season.

Ingram was suspended on Tuesday after violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. He will miss games against Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Cleveland and the New York Giants. While the Saints will still have Alvin Kamara to step up in Ingram’s place for the first month, the loss of Ingram will be noticed.

“The guy isn’t retiring or anything like that,” running back Trey Edmunds said. “He’s going to be back and we’re excited and we’re ready for him.”

According to Nicki Jhabvala of the Athletic, Darian Stewart, Chris Harris, Von Miller, Emmanuel Sanders and others have made a point of working with their fellow teammates in effort to bring them along as quickly as possible.

“I’m going to teach those guys everything that I know. That’s my job,” Sanders said. “You see a lot of these cats, when they get up in age, they kind of shy away from the rookies. I will never, ever be that type of receiver that says, ‘No, I’m not going to teach this guy.’ I’m going to teach you everything that I can possibly do.

Harris has organized offseason workouts in Texas for the defensive backs. Miller will hold another “pass-rush summit” this offseason.

The Broncos lost some of that cohesion between its veterans and younger players last season, per Jhabvala, with in-fighting and resentment between the two groups. The hope is they can recapture the formula that helped lead them to a Super Bowl title three years ago.

I think maybe that was being a little too optimistic in our eyes, but we expected him back. I get the questioning. Until Andrew steps off Week One and walks out of that tunnel and starts playing again, we’re still going to answer questions. There’s still going to be doubt. And I get that. That’s why I don’t mind standing up there answering the questions. I don’t mind and I get where the doubt comes from.”

It definitely will keep coming until Luck can play. And play well. And then the question will become whether and when he suffers the next injury that make shelve him for an indefinite period of time.
