The Raiders traded down with the Cardinals, who took a former UCLA quarterback. Oakland, with Arizona’s pick, has now taken a former UCLA tackle.

Kolton Miller is the 15th overall pick in the 2018 draft.

Elite Womens DeAndre Levy Jersey The Raiders were a pretty good team two seasons ago, we believe they have the core of a very competitive team, Marcus Foligno Youth jersey and Jon obviously was a big part of our family for a long time, Burke Magnus, ESPN’s executive vice president of programming and scheduling, told The Athletic.

The game had several angles to it. There is a curiosity factor to Jon’s return to football after so many years, it’s a good team, it’s a really good opponent. There are many reasons to watch.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Eagles restructured the contract of guard Brandon Brooks, creating a short-term bump of $6.37 worth of cap room.

Of course, that’s money that will have to be accounted for in future years, but that’s the cost of collecting a good team and keeping it together. It’s also enough cap room to sign their rookie class and have a small margin to make other moves.

Not sure why we’re told that we all love Bartolo Colon, but many readers don’t. They recall his drug suspension and that he was summoned to court by the mother of his secret other family, who sued for child support. But that was way back in 2016.

Having barely endured months of NFL draft predictions, thoughts turn to greats who never made the conversation. Here’s one, now: Mark Bavaro, widely regarded as the Giants’ best-ever tight end, was a fourth-round pick, No. 100 overall in 1985.Gil Santos, the New England Patriots’ longtime radio voice, died Thursday on his 80th birthday and 57th wedding anniversary.

Son Mark Santos confirmed the death to The Boston Globe. He said the cause of death wasn’t immediately clear to the family.

Mike Maccagnan: I don’t know why everyone’s locked in on a QB

Pre-draft press conferences are usually pretty drab affairs as teams have little incentive to offer anything beyond cursory insight into their plans ahead of time.
#27 Adidas Milan Lucic Women's Ash NHL - Backer Edmonton Oilers T-Shirt
Even by that standard, Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan’s final meeting with the media before the Jets make the third pick in the first round was an uneventful one. Maccagnan acknowledged that he’d like to add a substantial player to the roster, but anyone expecting him to confirm the team would be drafting a quarterback went away disappointed on Monday.

You have a great running back [and] he immediately makes your quarterback better, your offensive line better and your passing game better, Gettleman said.
Elite Youth Scott Wilson Jersey
Barkley rushed for more than 1,000 yards in each of his three seasons at Penn State, finishing with 3,843 rushing yards and 43 TDs for his career. He also had 102 catches for 1,195 yards and eight TDs.

Jackson joins Baker Mayfield (No. 1, Cleveland), Sam Darnold (No. 3 NY Jets), Josh Allen (No. 7, Buffalo) and Josh Rosen (No.10, Arizona) as the quarterbacks to be picked in the first round. Getting Jackson in the first round will allow Baltimore to have a fifth-year option on Jackson, which the team wouldn’t have had outside the first round.

The Ravens sent the 52nd overall pick in the second round, 125th pick in the fourth round and a 2019 second-round pick to the Eagles to move up 20 spots and grab Jackson. Baltimore also received a fourth-round pick, No. 132 overall, back from Philadelphia in the swap.

The NFL prospect arrived at AT&T Stadium on Thursday with the most uncertainty about when he would be drafted. Ryan Kalil Jersey Of the 22 players who will sit in the green room, Griffin knew he could be in for the longest wait.

Perhaps it was only fitting, though, for the man who’s had nothing given to him.

Bert Blyleven Authentic Jersey [My mom] always wanted me to strive for greatness, Jackson said. She’s always seen a lot more in me than I probably see in myself sometimes. One by one, Josh Allen, Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen echoed one another. They would be happy to play anywhere, in any city, for any team.

Giants not interested in ex-Cowboys WR Dez Bryant

Dumped by the Cowboys , Dez Bryant has expressed a desire to join an NFC East rival, preferably the Giants .

Now that veteran wideout Brandon Marshall has been released and Bryant is working out with Odell Beckham , it’s natural to wonder if Big Blue will reciprocate that interest.

“If you have the ability to evaluate the most important position in sports, in my opinion, the tiebreaker is you just got to believe it,’’ Accorsi said. “Now, there’s no guarantee, we’re all human. There’s no guarantee you’re gonna be right.’’

There is no guarantee the Giants will make the right call, up so high in the first round the night of April 26. Before they can be correct, they must have a conviction.

Torres hit .370 with a homer and 11 RBI in 13 games and 46 at-bats at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, playing mostly second base and third base. That was how he followed up a rough spring in which he went with a chance to win the starting second base job but hit only .219 in 32 at-bats.

“Every day I played in the minor leagues, I would feel better and better,” he said. “My (hitting) timing is getting better every day. Every day I feel more comfortable.”

The Yankees believed Torres could have suffered from rust, having missed about half of last season following July Tommy John surgery on his left arm. While he was healthy come camp — he even asked the Yankees to play in the Venezuelan winter league — the team believed he needed more work in the minors to get himself back into game shape.

The Yankees acquired Torres from the Cubs at the 2016 trade deadline. New York sent Aroldis Chapman to Chicago for a package of prospects headlined by Torres and outfielder Billy McKinney, who made his major-league debut earlier this season. The Yankees re-signed Chapman that offseason after he helped lead the Cubs to a World Series.

“A lot of ups and down. A lot of momentum swings. That’s what you have to expect in a playoff game, I’m kind of learning. You have to keep an even keel. There’s always a chance to turn the tide,” he said, as he stood in the Devils’ dressing room after Game 3.

One year ago, Hall stood in that same room in a green Bauer Hockey T-shirt and a Toronto Blue Jays hat, his locker cleaned out for the summer after a year of “grieving” and a last-place finish in the conference.steelers_119

Joe Flacco: Eventually, at some point, Ravens will draft a quarterback

Joe Flacco, like Philip Rivers and Case Keenum this week, said all the right things about his team potentially selecting a quarterback early in next week’s draft.
Elite Nike Men's Steve Atwater Navy Blue Alternate Jersey: NFL #27 Denver Broncos
When asked if he was frustrated about not having greater input, Rodgers said: Again, I know my role, and that’s to play quarterback the best that I can. The team is going to try to put the right guys in place — the right coaches in place, the right players in place. You just have to trust the process as we’ve talked about over the years. This process works, and it has worked for Mike for a number of years. Obviously, that’s why he’s still here in his 13th season. We’ve had a lot of success here, and you’ve got to trust the process.

Rodgers has two years left on a five-year, $110 million contract extension that at the time made him the NFL’s highest-paid player. He has dropped to ninth with an average of $22 million per season.

Like the last time, although it was large financial numbers, it was a deal that myself and the team was happy with, Rodgers said. It gave us the ability to do some things and made my cap number never go above an unmanageable level. So, obviously, I want to finish my career here. I’ve said that a number of times and still have two years left on my deal, so we’ll see what happens this offseason.

The Jets have added Brandon Copeland to their Jason Spriggs Youth jersey defensive line group this offseason and they also re-signed veteran Mike Pennel earlier in free agency.

The diagnosis came just a few weeks after Kelly celebrated his 58th birthday. Kelly had been cancer-free since September 2014.
Elite Womens Adam Henrique Jersey
He was first diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, which led to him having surgery to have a portion of his upper jaw removed in June 2013. Follow-up tests nine months later showed the cancer spread to his sinus, which led to radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Kelly lost 70 pounds while being treated.

The effects of the cancer and treatments led to Kelly having trouble speaking. He could also no longer produce saliva and had lost the sense of taste.

Kelly spent 11 seasons with the Bills before retiring following the 1996 season and has since made Buffalo his home.

He was part of the Bills’ most successful era, in which the team played in four consecutive Super Bowls 鈥?all losses 鈥?in the early 1990s.

Kelly told the Associated Press that staying upbeat helped him cope in beating cancer. He also refused to feel sorry for himself, which reinforced his desire to share his experiences with others.

Danny Amendola: Patriots’ offer didn’t even come close to Dolphins’ offer

Limited Kids Devin Hester Jersey
During his tenure in New England, Danny Amendola repeatedly agreed to take less money to stay with the Patriots. But that tenure ended this year when Amendola simply couldn’t do it from a financial perspective anymore.
Women's Replica Majestic Robin Yount Grey Road Jersey - #19 MLB Milwaukee Brewers Cool Base
Amendola told Mike Reis of ESPN that he left for the Dolphins this offseason because Patriots coach Bill Belichick wouldn’t even make an offer that came close to the offer the Dolphins made.

I’ll talk to him and give him my two cents on it but he’s got to do what he feels is best for him to get ready and play at a high level, Manning said.

Manning last week assembled several teammates 鈥?Sterling Shepard, Brandon Marshall, Evan Engram, Roger Lewis, Rhett Ellison and Wayne Gallman 鈥?for the annual throwing and catching session he holds at Duke University. Beckham is coming off surgery and would not have been able to run routes. Thus, he was not at the session, an absence Manning understood.

I talked to Odell and it was just a matter of what he’s doing in his rehab to get back healthy, Manning said. It wasn’t gonna make sense for him to make that trip if he can’t do all the routes and do everything. We’re on the same page, talked about it, it just didn’t make sense.

Stewart, 24, signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent last May. Denver cut him out of the preseason.

He spent a month on the Bills’ practice squad before they cut him, and he joined Washington’s practice squad on November 15.

Stewart, Womens William Karlsson Jersey a Baylor product, has yet to play an NFL game.

As the Bucks reflected on the emotional loss, they knew they could have made plenty of plays throughout the course of the game, but the final foul call on Antetokounmpo was a point of contention. Bucks interim head coach Joe Prunty’s frustration with the call was obvious when he described his reaction to the play.
Limited Kids Josh Lambo Jersey
What made the play more confusing — and irritating, from the Bucks’ point of view — was that referee Jason Phillips initially called the foul on Antetokounmpo while another official called a jump ball from his angle.

Knicks plan to meet with top coaching candidates, also to talk to former coach Mike Woodson

The New York Knicks are finalizing plans to meet with the four top candidates for their head-coaching job: David Fizdale, Mark Jackson, Jerry Stackhouse and former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt, league sources told ESPN.
Darian Stewart Mens Jersey Brian Orakpo Women's Limited Olive/Gold Jersey: Nike NFL Tennessee Titans 2017 Salute to Service #98
The Knicks plan to meet with Fizdale, Jackson and Stackhouse this week, and with Blatt, who is expected to travel to the United States, the following week.

Woodson has been on Doc Rivers’ coaching staff with the Clippers since 2014. Woodson is 315-365 as an NBA head coach, including six seasons (from 2004 to 2010) with Atlanta, where the Hawks increased their win total every year, reaching 53 wins in 2009-10. Woodson reached the playoffs in each of his final three years with the Hawks, advancing to Authentic Jeremy Hellickson Jersey the Eastern Conference semifinals in 2009 and 2010.

Blatt coached a Turkish team to the EuroCup title this season, making him one of only two coaches in history to have won the EuroCup, EuroLeague and EuroBasket championships.

Perry, who was hired as general manager in July 2017, will finally have the chance to hire his own coach — the team’s 11th since the 2001-02 season. The Knicks are determined to stay the course on drafting and player development as they await the return of All-Star center Kristaps Porzingis, who isn’t expected back until midway through next season as he recovers from a torn ACL.

Damon Harrison Mens Jersey The Celtics led 99-96 with 0.5 seconds left in regulation when Middleton took an inbounds pass on the far right wing and hit a contested 35-footer. Boston outscored Milwaukee 14-8 in the extra period.

Terry Rozier added 23 points, four rebounds and three assists for Boston in his first career playoff start. Jaylen Brown finished with 20 points. Rookie Jayson Tatum added 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Rozier said he knows he’s under a spotlight this postseason with Kyrie Irving out for the season following his recent knee surgery.

I just know I gotta step up, he said. I know I gotta fill big shoes. I don’t feel no pressure. I’m glad to be in this position.

Game 2 in the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night in Boston.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 35 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists before fouling out in overtime. Middleton had 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Malcolm Brogdon scored all 16 of his points after halftime.

Draymond Green: Davis Bertans should’ve earned flagrant foul, too

Golden State forward Draymond Green said he should not have been the only player to receive a flagrant foul 1 late in Monday’s 116-101 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of their first-round series.

Green said he’s not concerned about the flagrant point.

“Nah, I don’t care. It is what it is,” Green responded. “Life goes on. There’s more important things in life than worrying about a flagrant point. Maybe it’ll get rescinded. I got choked, put in a chokehold like I was in the WWE or something. So it might get rescinded. Who knows?”

Smart said he does not believe a bone marrow transplant is a possibility for his mother, but he said, “She’s a fighter,” and, “We’re trying to see what can work right now.”

Smart said that his mother being surrounded by family made it easier to return to Boston to watch his team open the playoffs against the Bucks.

“She told me she’d rather I was here than back there, doing what I love to do, because she loves to watch me play, because that would put a smile on her face, if I got back healthy and back on the court,” Smart said before Tuesday’s Game 2 at TD Garden.

Smart’s YounGameChanger Foundation strives to help young cancer patients, and Smart often visits local hospitals to meet with patients.

Smart said he’s trying to balance being around the team while waiting to find out more about treatment options for his mother.

“You want to be here. I love playing basketball,” Smart said. “A lot of my friends and family were telling me that basketball is my eye of the storm, where I’m the most calm, where I can think and release all that pressure. But it is hard to leave her, knowing the situation. But my family members are all there, and she has everyone around her.”

Stanton, who has been perfecting his right-field swing all spring, told The Post: “It should be good with Yankee Stadium and that short porch.’’

Neither big man is afraid of big expectations, and this spring Stanton said “it’s definitely possible’’ the duo could be the first teammates to join the 60-60 home run club.

But they also will not be ruled by those expectations.jets_034

The Giants might not see one of their stars on the field for a while.

Safety Landon Collins may need a second surgery on his right forearm, the NFL Network reported Wednesday. Collins broke the bone in late December and it has not healed as quickly as he hoped, according to the report.

The two-time Pro Bowler would Ivan Provorov Womens Jersey be back in time for training camp if he undergoes surgery soon to insert a plate into the arm, but would miss the spring offseason program. The recovery time from the surgery would be six to eight weeks before he could return to football activity.
Mens Kenneth Dixon Jersey
On a conference call with reporters on Monday, Collins said the arm was doing great.

Mens John Jaso Jersey Everything is back to 100 percent, Collins said.

Once the team is on the field, how will reps be divided? The rookie clearly is going to need a lot of work. If Bridgewater is sidelined still, will it be McCown and the rookie getting the bulk with Hackenberg getting the scraps? Or do the Jets give the veteran McCown some rest?

Maccagnan will oversee his fourth draft with the Jets next week, facing the biggest decision of his tenure with the No. 3 pick. With three drafts in the books, we thought it would be a good time to take a look at Maccagnan’s drafting with the Jets to see what trends have shown themselves over that time.

Since 2015, Maccagnan has made 22 total picks. They are split almost evenly on offense and defense. He has drafted 11 defensive players, 10 offensive players and one specialist. At the top of the draft, however, he has leaned heavily toward defense. All three of his first-round picks (Leonard Williams, Darron Lee and Jamal Adams) 鈥?and one of his second-round picks (Marcus Maye) 鈥?have come on defense. That figures to change in the first round this year.

The position Maccagnan has drafted the most has been wide receiver. He has taken four receivers in three years (Devin Smith, Charone Peake, ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen). The next most frequent positions targeted are outside linebacker and cornerback; he has selected three of each. Maccagnan has drafted quarterbacks twice and safeties twice; both safeties coming last year with Adams and Maye in the first and second rounds, respectively.

Bryant wouldn’t say who the Garrett guys are, but he was irked at not being selected as a team captain last season.

Dak Prescott, Jason Witten, Sean Lee, Dan Bailey, Tyrone Crawford and Orlando Scandrick ( now with Redskins ) each served as captains in Kevin White Womens Jersey 2017.
Limited Kids Pierre Garcon Jersey Adidas NHL Men's Nate Thompson Camo Authentic Jersey - #17 Ottawa Senators Veterans Day Practice
I won’t put no names out, but they know, and I want them to know I know, Bryant said. I’ll shoot them a text message and let them know. 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.

When asked if he was willing to take a pay reduction, Bryant responded, Yeah, if it was offered.

The only question I was going to have for that was: Even if I did take a pay cut, am I going to be able to come in to work and be happy? Will I be able to enjoy it? Because I already got a feeling that this person don’t like me, this person don’t like me.

The opportunity to add a Pro Bowl-caliber wide receiver this late in the game would be a massive gift for a team like the Panthers鈥攁 contender with a glaring hole Bryant would (in theory) fill quite nicely.

It’s just a matter of making the math work.

We know the San Francisco 49ers have more than enough room available under the salary cap to sign Dez Bryant鈥攁 hair over $47 million, if you’re into details.

We know that whether in free agency or on draft day, San Francisco general manager John Lynch has shown a willingness to be ultra-aggressive in upgrading the roster. He traded for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and then handed him a $137.5 million extension after five starts.

Authentic Mens Wayne Gretzky Jersey We also know the Niners need help at receiver. Marquise Goodwin played well last year but remains unproven. Pierre Garcon is more established, but he’s 31 and returning from a season-ending neck injury.

Benn nets natural hat trick to give Stars 4-2 win over Kings

Limited Clinton McDonald Jersey Jamie Benn and the Dallas Stars won’t be in the playoffs. Still, they gave the Los Angeles Kings a good preview of how tough raising the Stanley Cup might be.
NFL Nike Dallas Cowboys #84 Jay Novacek Ash Backer T-Shirt
Limited Sonny Jurgensen Jersey Benn had a natural hat trick in the first period and the Stars beat the Kings 4-2 on Saturday night.

Street racked up 19.5 sacks in his four seasons at NC State. His 9.0 sacks as a junior was the best of his college career after moving from tackle back to end. He appeared in 51 total games J.J. Hardy Youth jersey with 35 starts for the Wolfpack.

James was asked whether he ever doubted the Cavs, who have now won 11 of their past 13 games, would get their stuff together before it was too late.

I’m not much of a doubt guy, James said. But I just, you guys, listen, you’ve been with us all year. Just the ins and outs, the revolving door of guys in and guys out, either from switching teams or from injuries. Coaches being out. Players been injured. We had six guys leave before the trade deadline, which is something you don’t want to be a part of if you don’t have to because you want to kind of build stuff. So, it’s just been a challenge. And we’re trying to figure out the best way we can.

Smith would like to figure out how to end things in June by hoisting another Larry O’Brien Trophy.

Woodson’s reaction has been a common one among players. Unfortunately, the NFL really hasn’t explained what this new rule entails, and so there’s really no way for anyone to know just how players are going to play football without lowering their heads. Perhaps with time we’ll see that the rule is manageable 鈥?or perhaps we’ll see that Woodson and the rule’s other critics are right.

Reid’s visit with Cincinnati is his first known visit of the free-agency period. He became an unrestricted free agent last month after spending the first five seasons of his career with the San Francisco 49ers.

Reid tweeted at the beginning of the league year that he wasn’t receiving interest from teams because of his decision to protest during the national anthem.

The notion that I can be a great signing for your team for cheap, not because of my skill set but because I’ve protested systemic oppression, is ludicrous, he tweeted. If you think is, then your mindset is part of the problem too.
