The NFL owners plan on discussing the national anthem protests and how to handle them going forward this week at the league meetings.

Anthony Davis, at 25, has reached that magical point where separate small improvements, cobbled over multiple years, coalesce to transport a player onto a higher plane. Davis has achieved unguardability. Poor Jusuf Nurkic might as well be broadcast in standard definition trying to track Davis beyond the paint.

There is not expected to be any action taken this week on the anthem issue, but there will be discussion about it. Johnson made it clear how he feels.

“I can’t speak to how other people run their teams,” Johnson said. “I just think that trying to forcibly get the players to shut up is a fantastically bad idea.”

On Friday, Romo followed the opening bogey run with a double bogey on the par-4 18th. He birdied the par-5 fourth and par-4 sixth on the second nine, but had double bogeys on the par-3 second and par-4 fifth.

“I lipped out three or four putts early, some short putts that kind of got me almost a little bit pressing,” Romo said. “I just didn’t hit the irons very good today. The back nine’s 4,000-some yards, so when you’re not hitting those, well you’re going to have tough shots.

“Short-sided a few times, made too many mistakes. So a lot of stuff to learn from, and in a good way. I’ll be able to kind of assess why I didn’t play as well as I wanted to and then you go attack it. In a month from now
I think we’ll see things a little better.”

Romo received a sponsor’s exemption to the tournament and played as an amateur. The event has one of the weaker fields of the year because it is held opposite the World Golf Championships event in Texas.

“The putting’s a big thing,” Romo said. “I could see that you can tell that the speed control, a lot of little things. We hit the ball fine. We’re going to be fine with contact, I don’t feel out of place with that. I just feel like a lot of little stuff. I’ll tug an iron on a hole that you really can’t because you’re going to be downwind short-sided and you’re making a double.”jets_106

Malik McDowell Jersey expected to be released by Seahawks

Seahawks fans can only wonder what could have been with Malik McDowell .
(Houston Texans DeAndre Hopkins Limited Nike Men's Gray Jersey) NFL #10 Gridiron
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Seattle is expected to release last year’s second-round defensive tackle in the near future, according to a source.

What if only two, not four quarterbacks go off the board in the seven picks ahead of the Bears? What if perhaps, say, Saquon Barkley , Bradley Chubb , Tremaine Edwards, Minkah Fitzpatrick , Quenton Nelson and Denzel Ward are gone? Not likely, but best guess is that Pace and staff will have posited that and other similar scenarios in their mock drafts.

Sorting through those candidates has a stress level all its own, which is what is a given for a GM about to make Joe Klecko Authentic Jersey his fourth top-10 pick in as many years. But at least he isn’t stressing over which of a dubious quarterback class he has to take.

We feel good about the dialogue that has existed, McVay told reporters. We totally understand some of the other things that are going on with regards to wanting to get that deal, and with respect to Aaron, we feel really good about that dialogue. And this is a voluntary offseason program with where we’re at. You know he’s a guy who’s going to work hard on his off-time, and that’s kind of where we’re at. So we feel good with everything that’s going on with that.

Voluntary is a key word here, but so are last season’s developments, which saw Donald skip all of training camp and return one day before the Rams opened their season against the Indianapolis Colts . His holdout didn’t produce a new contract, but with a precedent established, there’s lingering concern he might not attend training camp this year, either.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has created the impression this offseason that he is strongly considering retirement, but it is starting to look more and more like his indecisiveness has everything to do with his contract situation. Gronkowski is not expected to show up when the Patriots officially begin their offseason program on Monday. While it’s possible he is still deciding if he wants to play in 2018, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports that Gronkowski’s refusal to commit is about the money.

Su’a Cravens Jersey traded to Broncos

So much for Washington not trading Su’a Cravens.
Authentic Larry Csonka Jersey Men's Nike New York Jets #5 Christian Hackenberg Limited Green Tank Top Suit NFL Jersey
Cravens, the Washington safety who was drafted in the second round in 2016 and didn’t play at all in 2017, has been traded to Denver.

The deal features Denver giving up the 109th overall pick, the 142nd overall pick, the 163rd overall pick and a conditional 2020 sixth-round pick in exchange for Cravens, the 113th overall pick and the 149th overall pick, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Add all those picks up and it’s roughly the equivalent of Cravens being traded for a late fourth-round pick.

I think the number was part of it, but also the conversation I had in the meeting, Nelson said on ESPN Milwaukee, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. I met with (General Manager) Brian (Gutekunst) and had a discussion because I had to get a feel for not just the pay cut but what their plans were going forward. After that meeting, there wasn’t, I don’t think, much desire there. I think with the combination of both, we decided what was best for myself and my family [just] as they decided what was best for them and the Packers.

Nelson seemingly acknowledged he would have been open to some sort of adjustment to his contract to facilitate an agreement to remain with the Packers. But when the team really, really low-balled him, according to former teammate James Jones, it made it clear there wasn’t much of a desire across the table for the relationship to continue.

It’s an update to the 1999 renovations, but not part of the $130 million spent in the 2013 lease.

We’re trying to make our experience for our fans better, owner Terry Pegula said. That’s our thought process on any of these projects. It’s all centered around keeping our fans happy and giving them the best experience they can get.

Of course, owners Connor Barwin Womens Jersey aren’t in the habit of giving away money, so the Bills are going to sell the naming rights for those club areas, which are currently named after Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, Bills broadcasting legend Van Miller and former Bills punter Paul Maguire.

[The Wizards] can go to the eighth because I watch them. That’s my brother, so I watch them and I know that they can beat Toronto. I think that would be a good matchup for them. Us, too, would be a good matchup, don’t get me wrong. But I think them against Toronto would be a good matchup too.

I’m told Jets brass were seriously concerned about the Bills’ moves 鈥?and the possibility of them vaulting past New York at No. 6. Those fears were compounded after New York lost out on prized free agent Kirk Cousins to Minnesota. That won’t be as easy with the Jets sitting in the slot originally held by Indianapolis, which wasn’t targeting a quarterback at No. 3 (under the hope Andrew Luck can fully recover from his serious shoulder injury).

The only potential trade partners for Buffalo now are Cleveland and the Giants. The Browns are expected to select a quarterback with the top overall choice while using their No. 4 selection to either bolster another position or trade back.

Elias Lindholm scored 49 seconds into overtime, and the Hurricanes prevented Tampa Bay from clinching the top spot in the Eastern Conference by beating the Lightning 3-2 on Saturday night.

Kenneth Acker visits with Colts

The Colts met with a possible addition to their defensive backfield on Tuesday.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the team met with cornerback Kenneth Acker. Acker met with the Seahawks last week in his first reported visit since free agency opened.

Acker was a sixth-round pick of the 49ers in the 2014 draft and spent two seasons with the team before being traded to the Chiefs. He played in every game for Kansas City last season, making 23 tackles and an interception for the AFC West champs. Acker also saw a lot of special teams time in both stops.

The Colts re-signed Pierre Desir and lost Rashaan Melvin since free agency opened last month. Quincy Wilson, Kenny Moore and and Nate Hairston also return from last year’s team.

Typically, a team’s point differential will closely track its winning percentage, and the Cavaliers are indeed an outlier. Here’s a graph of win percentage vs. margin of victory this season (through Friday):

That holds up on a historical level too. No team since the ABA-NBA merger has won more than 48 games (or the equivalent in a lockout-shortened season) with a point differential worse than plus-1.3 points per game. The 2011-12 L.A. Lakers are probably the best match for what Cleveland has done this season. Those Lakers went 41-25 (a 51-win pace) with a plus-1.4 differential. After beating the Denver Nuggets in a seven-game series, those Lakers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 4-1 in the second round.

“Mr. Kelly continues to recover well,” Dr. Mark Urken said in a statement, via the Buffalo News. “In addition to his own incredible toughness, he is surrounded by an extraordinarily supportive family.”

The procedure included the removal of a portion of Kelly’s fibula, including soft tissue and blood vessels, for placement in his upper jaw.

Kelly is expected to remain hospitalized for several weeks. We continue to extend best wishes to Kelly and his family for a quick and complete recovery.

Tyler Mahle (R), 23 percent, Cincinnati Reds at Pittsburgh Pirates: Mahle impressed in his first outing, but temper expectations for his second and beyond. He’s not dominant, so Mahle will be prone to rough outings. The Pirates possess one of the weaker lineups, and PNC Park is a great place to pitch, reducing the chances of a bad start.

Jimmy Butler Jersey returns to help shaky Wolves stay afloat in playoff picture

With so much at stake in this heated Western Conference playoff race, the Minnesota Timberwolves coach wasn’t leaving anything to chance.

As for Minnesota, Thibodeau could not have gotten Butler back at a better time with a playoff spot hanging in the balance.

Probably the biggest thing is the toughness, Thibodeau said of what the team missed since Butler injured his knee in late February. When you look at plays at the end of games, those are his plays. He’s the guy that is coming up with every big rebound, loose ball, whatever the game needs he provides.

You don’t replace a guy like that individually. You have to do it collectively, and I thought for the most part our guys did that. Our guys fought like crazy to keep us in position.

Everybody has their own routine, Matheny said. Everybody has their own routine in the heat to not have the ball so wet from sweat and the same on cold days. You’re using the wisdom of the guys who have been around.

I’ve always tried to do things the right way and that’s something that I’ll continue to do when I’m able to get back to the field.

Elite Womens Curtis Joseph Jersey Is there significant evidence Moncrief is actually good, though The Ole Miss product hasn’t even topped 750 yards in a professional season despite spending most of his pro career with Andrew Luck under center. He produced a seven-touchdown season on 30 catches in 2016, but that’s totally out of line with the rest of his career, during which he has scored 11 times on 88 grabs.

The Rams’ and Giants’ publicized trade talks alerted the NFL’s 30 other GMs to Beckham’s availability, so until the Giants re-sign Beckham to the long-term contract extension he desires, it remains possible they’ll deal him away.

The next step for the Giants is to commit to Beckham being on the team in 2018, Barry Bonds Jersey which they refused to do at last week’s league meetings in Orlando. Beckham’s next test will be whether he shows up on Monday for the start of Giants offseason workouts in East Rutherford. Attendance is optional, but his absence would mean something.

So unless Beckham or the Giants clarifies the star receiver’s contract and trade status, the drama will build all the way to the NFL Draft’s opening night on April 26. And over the next few weeks, there are few NFL GMs that bear watching closer than others in the OBJ Sweepstakes:

Carolina Panthers – Isaiah Wynn, G, Georgia Wynn is a natural fit for the Panthers’ offensive line after Andrew Norwell left for Jacksonville in the offseason.

Report: Peyton Manning Rejected Fox’s Offer to Announce Thursday Night Football

Peyton Manning will reportedly not help soundtrack Thursday Night Football on Fox this season.

According to the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand, Manning turned down Fox’s offer to be the lead color commentator after the network agreed to pay upwards of $550 million a season through 2022 to broadcast 11 games per season.

Which of his tools has impressed you the most so far

Miller: The ability to get swinging strikes. He got 18 of them in his first start, which, by comparison, is more than Justin Verlander got in any start last year. Making major league batters swing and miss is hard to fake, even on a pitcher’s best day.

Schoenfield: You know, his most impressive tool might be the one he’ll use the least: his speed. During his DH outing on Opening Day, he hit one routine ground ball up the middle and nearly beat the throw. The man can fly, with Keith Law giving him an 80 speed grade on the 20-to-80 scouting scale. His raw power is 70. The point is Ohtani might be the best athlete in the majors, which bodes well for his ability to not just maximize his talent on the mound but also hit well enough to keep earning playing time at DH.

Rather than draft Carson Wentz in 2016, the Browns traded that No. 2 pick to the Philadelphia Eagles. The same happened at No. 12 in 2017 with Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans.

None of this year’s top quarterbacks are can’t-miss prospects, largely because there is no such thing. But one of them needs to be atop Cleveland’s draft board, and the Browns need to take him at No. 1.

Whoever they pick there won’t be guaranteed to succeed, but for the first time in a long time, the Browns will be able to say they tried.

You can’t do any better than he did today, manager John Gibbons said.

Waddle, 26, provides experience if 2017 third-round pick Antonio Garcia isn’t ready to replace Solder. Garcia missed the entirety of his rookie season after battling blood clots in his lungs.

Carradine was a second-round pick in 2013 and missed his entire rookie season due to a torn ACL suffered during his final year at Florida State. He’s been a part of the defensive line rotation over the last four years, although he missed half of the 2017 season due to an ankle injury.
