Willie Snead tries out for Ravens

Willie Snead visited the Ravens last week, and apparently they wanted to see more of the receiver.

Snead, a restricted free agent, tried out for Baltimore on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Saints tendered Snead, but they used the lowest tender so they will get no compensation should they decide against matching a deal with Ravens or anyone else.

Snead, 25, served a three-game suspension to open last season and caught only eight passes for 92 yards in 11 games. He made 141 catches for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns in 2015-16.

Hitter ratings account for the opposing starting pitcher’s history (three years’ worth), as well as ballpark factors. “LH” and “RH” ratings account only for left- and right-handed batters, respectively.

Weighted on-base average (wOBA) is the primary statistic used in the calculation. Ratings range from 1 to 10, with 10 representing the best possible matchup, statistically speaking, and 1 representing the worst. For example, a 10 is a must-start rating, while a 1 should be avoided (if possible); a 1-2 is poor, 3-4 is fair, 5-6 is average, 7-8 is very good and 9-10 is excellent.

Singletary compiled a record of 18-22 during his time as head coach of the 49ers, before being fired during the 2010 season.

The draft’s move to Dallas follows the success the NFL saw in Philadelphia last year, when a new attendance record was set.

“Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the Draft to another level,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said upon the announcement. “This new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event’s evolution and grow it even further.”

There are two full months between the NFL Combine and the NFL Draft, and that schedule void is filled with the beginning of the league year in March, which in turn marks the official beginning of free agency.flames_003

Bucks close out Bradley Center with 102-86 win over Magic

Eric Bledsoe replaced the injured Giannis Antetokounmpo as the Milwaukee Bucks’ all-purpose threat and ran circles around the Orlando Magic.

Coach Joe Prunty was just as impressed with the contributions from his quick point guard that didn’t make the stat sheet.

Nikola Vucevic led Orlando with 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Bismack Biyombo had 14 points.

The Magic fell to 24-57 but had reason to be confident after beating the Bucks 126-117 in their last meeting on March 14. Orlando was 18 of 34 from 3-point range that Ryan Murray Jersey night to withstand a 38-point outburst by Antetokounmpo.

Reds: OF Scott Schebler (right elbow) missed his fourth straight game after being hit by a pitch Sunday against Washington. The impact did damage to the ulnar nerve in Schebler’s elbow and he is dealing with a lack of feeling in his hand as result. The Reds are still contemplating a move to the disabled list.

Pirates: RF Gregory Polanco was a late scratch with right foot discomfort after fouling a pitch off his foot on Friday night. He is day to day. Frazier replaced him in the lineup. … Musgrove (right shoulder strain) will begin throwing next week in Chicago.

Reds: Tyler Mahle (1-0, 0.00 ERA) will pitch the series finale on Sunday afternoon. Mahle, 23, will be making just his sixth career start, but it’ll be his third against Pittsburgh. He made his major league debut against the Pirates last August.

Pirates: Jameson Taillon (1-0, 3.38 ERA) will make his second start of the season. He tied a career high with nine strikeouts against the Minnesota Twins on Monday.

Gametime temperature was 44 degrees, and a slight mist made the conditions even more miserable. That contributed to the lowest paid attendance in the ballpark’s 27-year existence, breaking the previous record of 9.129 for Baltimore versus Tampa Bay on April 12, 2010.

There were no fans at a game on April 29, 2015, when the Orioles hosted the Chicago White Sox in a closed stadium due to security concerns amid civil unrest in Baltimore.

In this one, the Blue Jays were clinging to a 2-1 lead in the ninth before Curtis Granderson drew a bases-loaded walk and Donaldson followed with a shot to center off rookie Nestor Cortes Jr.

Thomas Davis Apologizes After Being Suspended 4 Games for Failed PED Test

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis announced Friday that the NFL has suspended him four games following a positive test for a banned substance.

The second-level stalwart finished the year with 76 total tackles and 2.5 sacks while playing聽79.4 percent聽of the Panthers’ defensive snaps, according to Pro Football Reference.

The cash flow of the deal suggests that’s exactly the case, which amounts to something closer to a transition tag in 2018 and a Jeremy Lin Jersey guaranteed franchise tag in 2019 in lieu of a guaranteed franchise tag in 2018 and flexibility thereafter. Fuller’s due $42 million over the first three years of this new contract, which is more than Casey Hayward got on his extension. It would be the third-largest three-year value for a cornerback in football after Josh Norman and Trumaine Johnson. Both of those players each had a lower percentage of their contracts guaranteed than Fuller.

The Bears backed themselves into a corner and handed out a deal that represents the best-case development curve for Fuller to try to save $2 million up front. In the end, they’re committed to paying Fuller like he’s a Pro Bowl cornerback for two years just a year after thinking he was roster fodder.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk passed along comments Daniels made to ESPN 97.5 Houston one day after McNair told Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal he never discussed his opinions about President Obama during a meeting.

We’re in the middle of the season, and this guy gets elected, and it wasn’t the guy that he was supporting, Daniels said. But a lot of the guys on the team were very supportive of Barack.

He added: That was weirder than I was actually making it out to be back then.

Brown originally discussed the meeting with Florio last October, saying he was surprised when McNair made his disappointment known within a team forum.

He came to talk to the team, Brown said. He was visibly upset about it. He said, ‘I know a lot of y’all are happy right now, but it’s not the outcome that some of us were looking for.’ That was very shocking to me.

Kaepernick’s protestations have absolutely become part of his evaluation as a player.

I probably should have a hot take on the subject. Either the Lions are doing Kaepernick dirty, like everyone else in the NFL. Or there’s no reason for the team to even consider signing him to a deal.

But I don’t think it’s that simple.

There’s a reason none of the NFL’s 32 teams will give him a job.
Authentic Kids Matt Martin Jersey
Ultimately, if the Lions are going to win anything in 2018, they’re best served not having either player on the field. And at the risk of sounding like I’m sitting on the fence, that’s about the only thing when it comes to the Lions’ backup quarterback situation that I can wholeheartedly endorse.

Cassel has a long track record of modest success in the NFL. He played most of the 2008 season after Tom Brady tore his ACL, and led the Patriots to an 11-5 record that he parlayed into big bucks with the Kansas City Chiefs.

He was a starter for most of his four seasons in Kansas City, and has a 35-45 career record overall (not including the one game he’s credited with starting early in 2015 when he was on the field for a trick play).

I still think he has a place in this league, Quinn said last year of Kaepernick, when ruling him out as a fit for the Lions. I don’t think watching Kap over the years 鈥?is he a perfect system fit for us Probably not. I think he has a great deal of talent. I think he has enough talent to be playing in this league in the right system.

First and foremost is knowledge of the game, he said. I know the game really well. I know our system really well at Toledo and how we wanted to attack on [offense]. And, you know, anticipation and accuracy, those are two of the things that I really tried to hone in on, and I feel like that’s what it takes Dion Lewis Authentic Jersey to be a quarterback in the National Football League.

I go out every day practicing, just trying to be the best, and with the mindset of having fun at the same time. King told SB Nation in December 2016.

He said the Devils’ organization played a big role in making that possible.

Our teammates, coaches and everyone have been so great to me, helping me, Boyle said. Coming to the rink is so fun. It’s been a ton of fun, playing the game is fun. We put a lot into it. We get our heads wrapped around in pretzels sometimes with this game. It’s tough. It’s demanding, but it’s a lo of fun, and we’re in a good spot. All things considered, it’s a lot of challenges, but we came out stronger than we thought we were before the year started.

We just couldn’t get that (seventh) inning pitched, Showalter said. That would have set up the rest of the game for us if we could have gotten that inning pitched.

Correa finished with two hits and three RBI after providing an early highlight with an inside-the-park homer in the first.

Adam Jones had three hits and three RBI for the Orioles, including a two-run homer in the sixth inning, and Jonathan Schoop doubled and hit a solo homer.

Houston ace Justin Verlander struck out nine in 5 2/3 innings, but was charged with four runs and six hits. Hector Rondon (1-0) got the win despite yielding a run in the seventh.

Obviously, you probably guessed that Bill Belichick of the Patriots wasn’t in the photo. He’s never in the photo ! Actually that’s not true: Belichick appeared in the photo back after the 2015 season. But that’s the exception, not the rule. Maybe Belichick thinks photos are a frivolous waste of time (he’s not wrong) or maybe Belichick thinks the time could be better spent exercising outdoors (again, not wrong) or talking to friends and family (again, absolutely not wrong). There’s plenty of other NFL people to discuss business with, along with tons of agents to negotiate with, that Belichick doesn’t need to stand in the sun and sweat while someone tells him to say the word cheese.

Texas, the red-tinged beams that make up parts of the border fence are cold, hard and rough to the touch.The former All-American point guard also noted that people knew he ‘checked out’ when he returned to Michigan – it’s unclear if this means academically, the fact that he almost left Michigan before returning, or on the court. He led me down to the pond, and that’s when I saw holding flowers and a small box.

Jones just tweeted that free agent Ryan Grant had decided to sign with the Colts.

Grant has reportedly already passed a physical with the Colts, after his last deal (with the Ravens) was voided when he didn’t. That set him back into the market, and he visited the Raiders as well.

It will also be curious to see how the deal he signs with the Colts stacks up with the one the Ravens took away at the last minute, which was reported to be for four years and $29 million (in the always inflated leaked early reports).
