You could argue Lou is the best GM of a New York-area team in the last 50 years, Cashman said. He’s a man with a plan, he’s got a philosophy, he’s committed and the proof is in the pudding when it comes to his work. The job he did in Jersey is second to none.

Lamoriello took over as president of the Devils in 1987 before making himself the team’s general manager, and during his 28 seasons in New Jersey, Lamoriello won three Stanley Cups John Elway Womens Jersey while building the Devils into聽a yearly contender.

He left the Devils in July of 2015, when he became general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs. After transitioning into a special advisor role with the Leafs in April, Lamoriello then accepted a job with the Islanders, where he has full control over all hockey decisions.

Jason Witten expects Dez Bryant to sign with Packers

Jason Witten may have recently retired from the NFL, but he’s still making his presence felt with a juicy prediction of former teammate Dez Bryant’s next landing spot.

“Rodgers, he throws that back-shoulder throw so well and Dez has great chemistry with a good quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants,” Witten, the new voice of Monday Night Football, said. “Because I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League.”

Bryant reportedly turned down a multi-year deal with the Ravens before the Draft, hoping to secure a one-year “prove-it” deal. Should he end up in Green Bay, he may finally get a chance to contend for his first Super Bowl appearance.

“It’s frustrating, especially coming from Nebraska where I was the guy, I knew I was going to get the ball at least 20 times a game,” Abdullah said. “For me, it’s not necessarily getting a certain number of touches. It’s getting meaningful touches…That’s where it gets kind of frustrating.”

Abdullah averaged 3.3 yards per carry in 2017 but scored a career-high four touchdowns. He said it was difficult for him to find a rhythm.

“The coaches, I trust their game plan, they’re much smarter than me,” Abdullah said. “But it’s hard when I come in, I get a carry and break it for about 10 yards, then I come out for about three plays, then I’ve got to come in to pass protect, then I don’t get my next carry until, like, the next quarter.”

Abdullah, who has totaled 1,250 rushing yards in 32 career games, said he has appreciated his time with the Lions.

NFL has no issue with David Tepper’s casino holdings

The prospective owner of the Carolina Panthers owns a company that holds ownership interest in casino stock. That won’t keep David Tepper from owning the team.

After four years, I was able to see behind closed doors, and up close, not only just the decisions that were made but the process through which those decisions came about, it was about being proactive and choosing the right person to run our organization right now. It wasn’t about promises that were made. It was about doing what the organization needed right now.

As far as outside perceptions go … I think it’s important to be aware of them, but if you allow them to shape or change your decision, especially in a place like Toronto, then you’re going to have a very difficult time.

Jackson was a two-sport athlete at Northern Colorado, playing both football and basketball, and the Chargers liked his athletic makeup enough to take him in the second round of the 2005 NFL draft, even though he hadn’t played against top competition in college. Jackson didn’t do much as a rookie, catching just three passes in his first year, but he eventually developed into a Pro Bowler in San Diego.

After a protracted contract dispute with the Chargers, Jackson eventually left for Tampa Womens Ryan Dzingel Jersey Bay and was a Pro Bowler again in his first year there, in 2012. A knee injury ended Jackson’s season in 2016, and he didn’t find a team in 2017. Now he’s deciding to call it a career. It’s been a good one.

Tepper’s effort became essentially a formality by virtue of the fact that he previously had been approved to purchase five percent of the Steelers. Like Browns owner Jimmy Haslam before him, the process of flipping from minority owner of one team to majority owner of another is essentially a rubber stamp process, especially since the other owners strongly favored Tepper as the buyer of a team that Richardson opted to quickly sell after news emerged in December that he had resolved multiple allegations of workplace misconduct.

With a net worth reportedly in the range of $11 billion, Tepper instantly becomes one of the richest owners in a club of billionaires. And he’ll get even richer as the value of the team grows steadily in a new age of legalized gambling.

Franklin tried out as a defensive back for the Bears. Franklin is聽best known for his speed. The former quarterback has been clocked as low as 4.32 in the 40-yard dash and could offer the Bears a unique skill set on special teams. He had 16 carries for 229 yards, seven catches for 95 yards and three total touchdowns in 2017 at FAU, his only season with the team. The odds are stacked against Franklin making the final roster, but the NFL is always looking for speed. The Bears got a lot more of it with this signing.

The Lions said in a statement Wednesday that Patricia was the subject of a standard pre-employment background check which did not disclose his arrest, and Banner and other current and former league executives who’ve been involved in similar searches in the past said those checks are rarely, if ever, handled by the executives who make Alex Tuch Jersey the actual hiring decisions.

The Seattle Seahawks have done a poor job of keeping quarterback Russell Wilson upright in recent years. Shoddy offensive line groups and lackluster ground games have contributed to Wilson suffering 248 sacks in six seasons.

49ers gambling lines shows a schedule easier on the back end

49ers gambling lines shows a schedule easier on the back end More Earlier this week, CG Technology released their lines for Weeks 1-16, providing us a glimpse at how oddsmakers see the matchups. The San Francisco 49ers are listed as early favorites in ten games, and underdogs in five. Week 17 is not listed because of the eventual impact of playoff implications. Most of these lines will change considerably between now and the game, but for the time being, it gives us a chance to consider the difficulty and ease of different stretches.

That inflexibility is a problem for Grasu, as he looks to compete with the likes of rookie second-round pick James Daniels, veteran Eric Kush and undrafted rookie Dejon Allen for a roster spot.

Grasu has enough talent to provide valuable depth for a team with less talent at the center spot. The Bears, however, have players with more versatility. Cutting Grasu would provide the roster spot to keep one of them and save nearly $800,000 in cap space.

It’s a failure in progress, former Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said of Bethel’s role on defense in December 2016, per NFL.com’s Marc Sessler. 

For Bethel to secure his spot on the Falcons, he’ll have to beat out the likes of Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Leon McFaddon for a spot high on the reserves depth chart.

If an undrafted free agent like Gus Edwards, De’Lance Turner or Mark Thompson flashes during the offseason, Dixon could be a roster casualty given the uncertainty of how he’ll look after his injury and the risk of him being suspended again. Cutting him would save the Ravens $725,000 in cap space.

The Buffalo Bills selected Ohio State defensive tackle Adolphus Washington with third-round pick in 2016. While Washington has the physical tools to be a disruptive NFL defender (6’4, 295 lbs, ran a 4.95-second 40 at his pro day), he hasn’t become the dominant force the Bills had envisioned.

In free agency, Buffalo brought in a pair of productive defensive linemen in Star Lotulelei and Trent Murphy. The Bills also drafted former Stanford defensive tackle Harrison Phillips in the third round this year.colts_079

Frostee Rucker Limited Jersey What say you, Twitterverse? Got lucky snagging Evan Engram off waivers to fill my tight end void last year. Is Mike Gesicki this year’s Engram and will he see the lion’s share of Jarvis Landry ‘s missing targets? What’s funny about Engram is that he actually graded out as one of the worst tight ends in football last year. He led all tight ends in drops with 11 and earned PFF’s third-lowest run-blocking grade at the position behind only Troy Niklas and Vernon Davis.

He couldn’t stand it if a defensive back ever felt like he got the best of 82 that day. He wanted that DB to know that he was in for a long practice or game guarding him. He couldn’t accept being average.

I will also remember him coming to Joonas Korpisalo Authentic Jersey the side lines trying to be respectful of how tough the quarterback’s job was during the games but sometimes he just couldn’t control himself. He would say things like, ‘Hey 9, I know we ain’t got much time back there, but I got HQ fricking harris guarding me. I’m getting open pretty quickly now, don’t be afraid to take a peek if you got the time. That was code for Jason saying ‘I am wide open and I have a bum on me if you haven’t noticed.’….. and sure enough every time I watched the tape, he was always right.聽

However, having the NCAA implement such a system is asking the fox to design the henhouse. An independent and neutral party should put together the framework for such a system, not the NCAA itself.

The ban on agents has long been a failure of NCAA policy, driving all interaction between players and agents underground and forcing the better, more ethical agents to the sideline while the worse, less ethical agents had open-field running to influence players.

The report correctly states that, in the absence of open access to agents, players will simply get such access illicitly.

Yes, it鈥檚 Newton鈥檚 29th birthday. And his present came a little early: Offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

Darin Gantt of PFT joined Friday鈥檚 PFT Live to discuss the changes to the team鈥檚 offense, whether the changes will suit Newton, and more. One subject that could be sticking in Newton鈥檚 craw could be his contract. Signed to a long-term deal three years ago that averages $20.7 million per year (at a time when the high-water mark was $22.13 million annually), Newton now finds himself sliding down the list of highest-paid quarterbacks, with numerous younger and less accomplished quarterbacks making much more than him.

Unfortunately for Newton, he鈥檚 signed through 2020. And the team will soon have a new owner, who may or may not want a G.M. who may or may not want a coach who may or may not want to give Newton $30 million or more per year.

So Newton鈥檚 birthday wish may be in the short term a return to normalcy followed by clarity regarding where he fits into the plans of the post-Jerry Richardson Panthers.

Patriots’ Joe Thuney has foot injury, will need surgery

Patriots left guard Joe Thuney is dealing with a foot injury that will require surgery.

Mike Reiss of ESPN reports that Thuney has been limited in his participation in offseason work because of the foot injury, and is preparing to have surgery.

The plan is for Thuney to miss Organized Team Activities but be ready in time for the start of the regular season.

The Lions could decide to try to shut off Patricia’s right to a buyout, if they decide that they have no choice but to make a change. It’s possible, for example, that paperwork completed or other information submitted by Patricia when he got the job contemplated full disclosure of the indictment. If he failed to do so, that could be grounds for a so-called termination for cause.

Before it ever gets to that point, the Lions would have to conclude that it’s not practical to proceed with Patricia as the coach. And the league office, which has become ultra-sensitive to the public-relations consequences of allegations of violence against women, surely will take a position on what the Lions should do. That position definitely will be shaped by the extent to which it’s believed that the situation creates a P.R. problem for the league office.

Asked by reporters about the possibility of signing Beckham to a new contract, Mara said (via Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com), “It’s not the first contract negotiation we’ve ever had. It will get done when it’s supposed to get done.”

While it’s no surprise that Mara would offer up a dismissive answer to an important question, the broader question is whether Beckham (who has been participating in offseason workouts) will take part in OTAs or training-camp practices without the security that comes from a new contract. Clearly, he has earned a second contract. Presumably, he wants more than the Giants will pay.

So where does it go from here? Franchise tag for two years before hitting the market? Or a trade that would send Beckham to a team that would pay him what he wants or something close to it?

Just because there’s currently no active conflict between player and team doesn’t mean that conflict isn’t coming. If the Giants continue to drag their feet when it comes to paying Beckham, maybe he won’t put either of his feet onto a football field.
