As it turns out, this Saquon Barkley kid may have a future.
The Penn State running back has all the tape anyone needs to see, but has put up strong numbers at the Scouting Combine to convince any skeptics who might still exist.
On NFL Network, Griffin said that after his impressive 4.38-second 40-yard dash, he started suffering from cramps that affected him for the rest of his workout. He believes he’ll put on a better showing at UCF’s Pro Day, and he’ll be working out with his twin brother, Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin, to get ready.
Game Kids Matt Martin Jersey After the 40 I started cramping up pretty bad so through the drills it wasn’t up to my expectations. That’s why I feel the Pro Day, when I’m training with my brother, he’s going to be my coach for the month until my Pro Day, I can show what I can do in those drills at 100 percent, Griffin said.
Griffin was taken aback by how many people from around the NFL have contacted him to tell him they were impressed with his performance. But he thinks they’re going to be even more impressed the next time he works out.
Michigan’s Maurice Hurst was the biggest pro day winner just for being on the field.聽
LSU’s Derrius Guice didn’t score as highly (7.21), but his angry running style and speed would make a strong tandem with a powerful runner like Blount. Guice’s score was only a little shy of the player he idolizes, Marshawn Lynch (7.84). Like Guice, Rashaad Penny (7.20) is another big and fast option in the early rounds. It should be noted, both have a shot to raise their scores further if they complete agility drills at their pro days.
If Detroit doesn’t land a top back in the early rounds, later-round options include Arizona State’s Kalen Ballage (9.10 RAS) or Fordham’s Chase Edmonds (7.84). Both are solid runners who bring a dynamic element in the passing game. Previous mid-round picks, like Curtis Joseph Jersey Jay Ajayi (8.65) and Michael Turner (7.67), have turned their tools into strong NFL seasons.
Dickson said the Seahawks asked him to do a staring contest.
Tomas Plekanec Mens Jersey Former Jets and Chiefs coach Herm Edwards will be taking one of his former ers with him to Arizona.
Arizona State University has announced that center Kevin Mawae will become an offensive analyst for the Sun Devils program.
Kevin Mawae is one of the most respected voices in football, Edwards said in a press release. He will add a tremendous amount of credibility Tyrell Adams Womens Jersey and knowledge to our coaching staff. I am thrilled that I get the opportunity to reunite with one of my favorite ers to coach.
His chances of making it all the way to the end of the contract will look pretty good as long as he keeps kicking the way he did last year. Gano was 29-of-30 on field goals, 34-of-37 on extra points and effective on kickoffs as the Panthers advanced to the offs.
Gano would have been in line for a $4.94 million salary if he received the tag, but no financial terms of this deal were announced by the team. Gano’s deal likely wound up in a similar neighborhood to the ones Ryan Succop, who got five years at $20 million from the Titans, and Matt Bryant, three years at $10.5 million with the Falcons, signed recently.
UPDATE 2:07 p.m. ET: Per multiple reports, the deal is worth $17 million with $9 million guaranteed.
Others have noticed it, including John Keim of ESPN.com: Cousins tagged both the Vikings and the Jets in the post. Making that discovery even more intriguing is the reality in league circles that some think the Vikings and Jets will be the primary suitors for Cousins.
Authentic C.J. Anderson Jersey That becomes problematic for Cousins if either team moves on to another quarterback option, leaving Cousins with limited leverage. This gives the game of poker that Cousins and the teams are ing considerably higher stakes.
Come Tuesday, things may accelerate. Or they may not. It’s still too early to tell who Cousins will choose, or when he’ll make his choice.
Danny Amendola is taking his talents to South Beach, but not his girlfriend.
The Jets started the day without a quarterback to speak of, now they have two.
According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Jets have agreed to a one-year deal with former Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
He’ll have the chance to compete with Josh McCown, who signed a one-year, $10 million deal earlier today.
A Harris County grand jury Friday indicted Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett for the felony charge of injury of the elderly for injuring a 66-year-old paraplegic who was working at NRG Stadium to control access to the field at Super Bowl LI, prosecutors said.
On Feb 5, 2017, Bennett, who played for Alief Taylor High School and Texas A&M, was a spectator and in town to watch his brother, Martellus Bennett, a player for the New England Patriots.
Immediately following the game, Bennett shoved his way on to the field where players were gathering to celebrate.

Game Youth Jacoby Brissett Jersey
Defensive end Chris Smith has agreed to a three-year, $14 million deal with the Browns, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Smith wanted to stay in Cincinnati, and the Bengals wanted to keep him. But Cleveland’s offer proved too good for Smith to pass up.
Which the Broncos discovered when they signed Case Keenum.
Keenum raised his profile sharply in 2017 while guiding the Vikings to the playoffs. He completed 67.6 percent of his pass attempts and averaged 7.4 yards per throw. He also threw 22 touchdown passes and only seven interceptions with a passer rating of 98.3.
But the sample size of Keenum as a quality starter is small, mostly limited to those 15 games in 2017 during his age-29 season. Keenum flamed out with the Los Angeles Rams the season before with a passer rating of just 76.4.
Crowell, 25, spent four seasons in Cleveland. He had 737 carries for 3,118 yards and 21 touchdowns, while catching 96 passes for 770 yards and one touchdown.
Saquon Barkley鈥榮 big combine prompted talk that the Browns could take the Penn State running back No. 1 overall.
As new Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther brings to Oakland his Cincinnati defense, Guenther would benefit from having players who know the defense. And there鈥檚 a guy who has played for the Raiders who would help out significantly in that regard.
Free-agent safety Reggie Nelson has agreed a one-year deal to remain with the Raiders, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
The race for Ndamukong Suh took a turn Friday when the six-time All-Pro defensive tackle told Yahoo Sports that the New York Jets have become a serious contender for his services.
Suh, 31, does not have any scheduled trips as of now, but he told? Al Montoya Jersey Yahoo that Jets head coach Todd Bowles and the team have informed him on how they envision using him.

In case soon-to-be free agent safety Eric Reid s and other protesting players are Jermey Parnell Jersey wondering how they’ll be received in the market, here’s another suggestion it won’t be warmly.
According to Christian Red of the New York Daily News, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said that any protests performed by Dolphins players this year won’t be during the national anthem.
All of our players will be standing, Ross said.
So because many people have misunderstood (or chosen to not hear) the original intention of the protests, and because one very loud person has capitalized on that misunderstanding (or willful ignorance) and people have chosen to adopt that version, the Dolphins will not be sanctioning peaceful protest this year.
Ross discussing his friendship with Trump makes it clear that the NFL’s biggest desire in this situation is for all the noise to go away, and they’re willing to yield to the person who screams the loudest to make that happen.
That will be news to Dolphins players such as Kenny Stills, Michael Thomas, and Julius Thomas, who knelt last year. Then again, Julius Thomas is about to be released, and Michael Thomas is about to be a free agent.
And at a time when the Texans vow they won’t be treating protesting players any differently (though some disagree), it doesn’t paint a very welcoming picture for those who want to use their platform to talk about issues which make their owners uncomfortable.
Game Mens Deonte Thompson Jersey The SAM in our defense is an important spot but there is so much nickel defense being played in the NFL. Often times you only have two linebackers out on the field, so you want to give him more than just that role. He might be a SAM in base, but you want to make sure he has a role when we’re playing our two linebacker defense as well.
Smith played the second-most snaps among the team’s linebackers last season, staying on the field for 55 percent of the plays. It was more than the Cowboys wanted him to play as he returned from a devastating injury to his left knee that kept him off the field in his rookie season of 2016.
He probably played more than we wanted him to play at the outset of the season, Garrett said.
Game Kids Jimmie Ward Jersey It does not take an expert to watch Josh Rosen set up and throw to determine he is a gifted passer.
It does, however, take real foresight to determine if Rosen is a perfect fit for the Giants, who own the No. 2-overall pick in next month’s draft. One of, if not the most impressive and perhaps most unappreciated (outside of the Giants building) of Eli Manning’s attributes for the past 14 years is his remarkable, at times astonishing durability. Rosen comes out of UCLA with a few injury issues that cannot be discounted but also must be put in proper perspective.
He was convicted not for pulling the trigger and killing Odin Lloyd, but for being part of a joint venture that ultimately ended up in his death The bottom line and the clear fact is no prosecutor and no jury has ever convicted Aaron of pulling the trigger that actually killed Odin Lloyd. And people don’t ever talk about that.
Baez still believes Hernandez Womens T.J. McDonald Jersey was innocent of murder.
Aaron was not a killer, he said. While he was a very flawed human being, he had many good qualities to him. And I think his legacy and the storyline have to deal with Aaron should be looked at a little bit differently.
Baez hopes the docu-series will unveil the many sides of Hernandez and what caused his downfall, resulting in tragedy for everyone involved.
Everybody who knew Aaron absolutely loved him, claimed Baez. And the biggest problem was not that many people knew him. To this very day, everyone Aaron touched is incredibly distraught over it all.
Thirty-seven years later, the Giants are unlikely to use the No. 2 pick on a defensive player, with quarterbacks to choose from, plus running back Saquon Barkley and guard Quenton Nelson to sort through. If they do go defense, though, it would likely be to select Bradley Chubb, the top player at a position defensive end the Giants historically enjoy stockpiling.
Any defensive player taken so high would be linked and compared with Taylor.
I would take it on with a [head] full of steam, Chubb said Saturday at the scouting combine. Just go out there and compete to be my best. A lot of people are going to have expectations of me no matter how high I go or how low I go. It’s just something where I have to stay humble and keep working on myself.
Authentic Vincent Valentine Jersey
Chubb was a three-year starter at North Carolina State and broke Mario Williams’ school record for sacks and tackles for loss. He is not a blowhard, but he does not lack for confidence, either, believing he should not take a back seat to anyone in this draft.
Carlos Hyde doesn’t have the hype of Saquon Barkley, and he shouldn’t stop the team from drafting Barkley. But he’s a nice committee piece.Chris Hubbard helps out an offensive line that suddenly needs a ton of it after Joe Thomas’ retirement.
Then there is Chris Smith, the versatility veteran defensive end who broke out with the Bengals last year. The in-trading between the two Ohio teams has picked up recently in large part thanks to former Bengals assistant coach Hue Jackson serving as Browns head coach, so Smith wasn’t a surprise.
Bryant has a cap hit of $16.5 million in 2018 before a built-in out in his contract. It’s entirely too much for wideout who turns 30 in November and hasn’t hit the 1,000-yard mark since 2014.
Granted, judging Bryant on yardage alone would be silly. So let’s slice it up some more. He scored six times in 2017, his lowest mark since 2015. He averaged 12.1 yards per catch, the worst mark of his career. He did this while catching 69 passes, the third-best mark of his career—but on 132 targets.
There’s a conversation worth having about Dak Prescott residing under center now. Maybe it isn’t fair to hit Bryant in the checkbook due to worse play under center. According to Rapoport, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn’t discuss a restructure with Bryant during their meeting ahead of the new year opening.
But he should.
They have to shore up the line in front of Cam Newton in as many ways possible.Luckily for the Panthers, proven guys like Slauson are still available, and they could always gamble on a rehab project like Luke Joeckel or Xavier Su’a-Filo.
Known as a conservative franchise content to stick with guys they’re familiar with, the Bengals stepped far out of their shell with the trade for offensive tackle Cordy Glenn. They also brought back tight end Tyler Eifert.
We can’t expect much more from the timid Bengals here. They have 11 draft picks and already addressed two major needs on the roster.
The first time Donald Trump publicly impugned the reputation of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe was about three months after the bureau had begun investigating links between Trump锟斤拷s campaign and Russian interference efforts.
But Trump didn锟斤拷t know about that investigation at the time. His disparagement of McCabe 锟斤拷 disparagement…
But McCabe was not universally loved inside the bureau. Some agents resented him for what they felt was a rapid rise through the ranks in his 22 years there. And officials noted that misleading investigators is a fireable offense, though they were curious about how the evidence would show McCabe had done so.
But for me, this was about putting our team in the best position to go win a championship in the next few years, Brees said. … I’ve made it very clear from day one that I was always gonna be a New Orleans Saint as long as they would have me.
Aside from the Brees’ new contract, the Saints had two specific problem areas on defense in need of attention: linebacker and pass-rusher.
Demario Davis, who signed Ryan Zimmerman Womens Jersey three-year, $24 million contract, brings a different presence to the New Orleans linebacker corps. No one on the Saints roster is as quick diagnosing or physical defending the run. Davis experienced a career season with the New York Jets last year when he registered a team-high 135 tackles and five sacks. The 29-year-old defender does struggle in space. Even so, he’s still an upgrade over Manti Te’o.
Game Mens Joe Schobert Jersey My offer of employment to Mr. McCabe is a legitimate offer to work on election security, Pocan said in a statement. Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of American democracy and both Republicans and Democrats should be concerned about election integrity.
Horowitz, the inspector general, had been investigating broad allegations of misconduct in the Clinton email case since early last year, but he zeroed in on McCabe over the last few months.
McCabe, who briefly served as acting FBI director after Comey锟斤拷s firing, technically stepped down from his deputy post after now-director Christopher A. Wray was told of what the inspector general had found.

Limited Mens Lance Alworth Jersey Whitehead’s pass coverage was better Authentic Donte Whitner Jersey in 2017, but remains the weak spot in his game,The price tag could ultimately determine whether Whitehead returns, but of the team’s free agents, he’s near the top of list of guys who merit bringing back,The rest of the market is flush with middle linebackers, although veterans NaVorro Bowman and Zach Brown are capable of playing both inside and outside,Nigel Bradham is arguably the only upgrade to Whitehead among the outside linebacking options.
The Eagles linebacker is scheme-versatile and is comparable to Whitehead as a run stopper and blitzer, but better in coverage,A cheaper fit, who has a background with Lions coach Matt Patricia, is Jonathan Casillas.
Loaiza, 46, was arrested Friday and charged with possessing more than 20 kilograms of heroin and/or cocaine for purchase/sale and for transporting for sale narcotics and/or a controlled substance.
His bail, subject to change, was set at $200,000.
A native of Tijuana who attended high school in Imperial Beach, Calif., Loaiza pitched 14 seasons in the majors for eight teams from 1995-2008. His best season was with the White Sox in 2003 when he was 21-9 with a 2.90 ERA and finished second in AL Cy Young voting to the late Roy Halladay. He was an AL All-Star in 2003 and ’04.
Pharoh Cooper Limited Jersey The right-hander recorded doube-digit victories seven times and finished his career 126-114, having played for the Pirates, Rangers, White Sox, Blue Jays, A’s, Dodgers, Nationals and Yankees.
The Spurs (37-30) have lost 11 of their past 14 games and fell to the 10th spot in the Western Conference standings with Monday’s loss.
Castillo seems like a sleeper to me because he Womens Vincent Rey Jersey is not going among the top 10 at his position, and I rank him as he should be. While his batting average could go in several directions, it also could settle in at .260 with 17 home runs. Nothing wrong with that considering the investment. — Eric Karabell
Elite Jalen Mills Jersey Zunino, the catcher you’re practically guaranteed to get in Round 20 or later who has a legitimate chance at developing into a top-five backstop. — Tristan H. Cockcroft
Posey did not finish among the top 75 hitters on last season’s Player Rater, mainly thanks to steadily declining power that is not showing any hint of returning to past levels. To make him a top-75 option in drafts is risky, and not something I ever plan to do. Sanchez, for that matter, is also being chosen too aggressively. — Eric Karabell
I’ll see Kawhi [Tuesday], Popovich said. We’ll see how he’s feeling, and see how ready he is, and see how ready I think he is. And we’ll go from there.
The team reportedly had targeted a home matchup on Thursday against the New Orleans Pelicans as the date for Leonard’s potential return, but Leonard will not play Thursday, as first reported by Yahoo! Sports on Tuesday and confirmed by ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.
Youth Darqueze Dennard Jersey
Popovich was asked on Saturday about the report of Leonard’s return, and said, Well good for them. I’m glad they’re reporting that. I don’t know what they reported. I don’t hear. I don’t worry about reports.
With Seattle turning the page offensively to Brian Schottenheimer and having a ton of salary-cap issues, there’s no way the team can afford to re-sign Graham. At 31, Graham still will likely cost another team up to $8 million per season in what might be the final contract of his pro career.
Graham’s name has been bandied about for the cap-rich 49ers and Bears. But both San Francisco (George Kittle) and Chicago (Adam Shaheen) have second-year athletes they like at the position. Each team is a few moves away from becoming a contender, but not using that money at other positions of need and going for the luxury of Graham is unwise.
