Sean Payton doesn’t see a coveted QB like Patrick Mahomes Jersey in NFL Draft

Saints head coach Sean Payton has been vocal about his concern over some of the quarterbacks in this year’s NFL Draft class.

Payton could be looking to add a young signal-caller to groom under Drew Brees, who signed a two-year contract this offseason, but he appears less-than impressed with the position’s candidates this year.
Joe Blanton Game Jersey
While Payton may not see a sure thing at quarterback among the top prospects, he did admit to liking one last year. Speaking on The Dan Patrick Show Monday, Payton admitted to targeting Patrick Mahomes last year before the Chiefs leapfrogged them.

Allen, who Beane said spoke Thursday with owners Terry and Kim Pegula after the tweets emerged, thanked the Bills for drafting him.

Game Louis Lipps Jersey It was a tremendous relief, Allen told reporters after being selected. I got the news last night about everything happening. I was extremely down in the dumps. I was very emotional, just because I know that’s not me. I’m not the same person I was six years ago. Whatever happened, happened. I think it happened for a reason.

I definitely think I was destined to be a Buffalo Bill, and I’m extremely grateful that they went out of their way and stuck out their neck for me. Now it’s my chance to go prove and make sure they look like they did the right move in trading up for me.

Allen also was asked whether he would address the content of the tweets with his new Bills teammates.

I don’t have to, but I probably will, he told ESPN. I want them to know that I’m going to work to be the best teammate possible.

Carroll said he was not going there when the subject came up during his radio interview.

The former 49ers quarterback chose Wendel Clark Jersey to not stand during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial injustice in the beginning of the 2016 season. He later evolved the protest to kneeling.

He did not sign with a team during the 2017 season, but some NFL players chose to pick up where he left off and knelt during the anthem to continue the protest.

The Seahawks have re-signed the team’s 2017 backup quarterback, Austin Davis, and also journeyman quarterback Stephen Morris.

Report: Steelers listening to offers for Martavis Bryant Jersey

Martavis Bryant wants to find a team that will use him more, which is why he asked for a trade before the deadline last season. The Steelers now appear open to a trade for the wide receiver at the right price, with Dan Graziano of ESPN reporting that the team has been quietly listening to offers.
Men's Reebok Morgan Rielly Premier Green NHL Jersey: Toronto Maple Leafs #44 Salute to Service
The Steelers obviously would like to avoid sending him to Baltimore or New England, two teams that could use another talented receiver.

The report cites a well-connected top-level NFL personnel executive who has said since January’s Senior Bowl that the Browns would take the strong-armed Allen from Wyoming. He isn’t the most accurate quarterback in the field, but has a rocket arm capable of handling cold, windy weather.
Game Womens Jonathan Stewart Jersey
And now, it appears Mayfield may have surpassed Darnold as well in the Browns’ eyes. Either that or Cleveland is passing disinformation 鈥?perhaps to play the Jets, who covet Mayfield themselves.

Dustin Fox of 92.3 The Fan 鈥?who is part of Cleveland’s in-house broadcast team 鈥?reported last Friday that the Browns would take either Allen or Mayfield. Three days later, Dan Patrick claimed an NFL scout confirmed as much to him. Granted, smokescreens are rampant, but the hype is building.

Cleveland general manager John Dorsey has a record of drafting for upside, and he’s reportedly liked Mayfield since watching him while he was unemployed this fall. Browns draft consultant Scot McCloughan 鈥?a former GM in both San Francisco and Washington 鈥?has publicly said he would go with Mayfield, the cocksure Heisman winner from Oklahoma.

That’s a great endorsement, and it’s what Mora should have been saying all along about Rosen. Whether that makes a difference at this stage of the process remains to be seen.

I’m just happy for my Kevin Durant Youth jersey name to be on their mind, period, Jackson said Wednesday after a youth clinic outside of AT&T Stadium.

Jackson would be the heir apparent to Brady, who already has given him an endorsement. Earlier this month, Brady’s account commented on an Instagram post of Jackson, calling him a beast. Jackson said he wouldn’t mind getting to learn from the five-time Super Bowl champ, who has plans to play into his mid-40s.

Jonathan Schoop Mens Jersey When Brady said I’m a beast, I’m like, ‘Brady said that!?’鈥?said Jackson, who hasn’t met with the Giants or Jets outside of the NFL Scouting Combine. Brady don’t really come out too much and talk, but that’s one of the guys I’ve looked up to as well.

He had 37 tackles with 15 passes broken up and two INTs in 2017 and has the skill set and look of a No. 1 NFL corner with his speed, athleticism and ball skills.

Fellow offseason trade acquisition and secondary partner Aqib Talib also belongs on this list after his split-up with the Broncos. But Peters’ matchup with the Chiefs is slightly more intriguing. For one, Kansas City looks like a more formidable opponent. Peters’ departure was also the more surprising of the two, and he could have several opportunities to tilt the game as Patrick Mahomes takes over for Alex Smith as the Chiefs’ quarterback. And playing in Mexico City on Monday Night Football should make for an interesting backdrop.

Pete Carroll and the rest of his Seattle team might be feeling snubbed after Graham jumped to Green Bay. Moreover, defending the connection from Aaron Rodgers to his new tight end could be a serious challenge for a rebuilding Seahawks defense.

Cardinals QB Sam Bradford at Vikings (Oct. 14, Week 6)

After he missed all but two games in 2017 due to a knee issue, moving on was the natural decision for both Bradford and Minnesota, especially once Kirk Cousins came into focus as the NFC North champs’ next starter. Still, Bradford might get a kick out of one-upping his old team with a rebuilding group.

Few judged it too harshly at the time, figuring the Vikings were coming off an NFC title game appearance and were bringing back virtually every key player from that team.

The 2010 Vikings, though, got old in a hurry. Without an influx of talent or meaningful depth, they went 6-10 and triggered a rebuild.

That team was more veteran-heavy than these current Vikings, but this point is still valid: Minnesota, once again coming off a year in which it was one game short of reaching the Super Bowl, must take this draft seriously — collecting players who can contribute immediately and grow into bigger roles.

Unlike Ward, Jackson was not impressive with his combine workout, but his ball skills — eight interceptions, 18 passes broken up and 48 tackles last season — are hard to ignore.

Kenny Vaccaro Jersey visiting Dolphins

One of the safeties caught in a slow-moving free agent market at the position may have a chance to land a job with the Dolphins.
Youth Blake Griffin Authentic Black Nike Jersey: NBA Los Angeles Clippers #32 Statement Edition
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Kenny Vaccaro will visit the Dolphins on Thursday. Vaccaro ranked No. 27 on our list of the top free agents this year and is the top-ranked players unsigned and untagged at this point in the offseason.

Michael Wilhoite Authentic Jersey Vaccaro was the 15th overall pick of the 2013 draft and spent the last five seasons with the Saints. He was a starter out of the gate and had 60 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions in his 12 appearances last season. He ended the year on injured reserve with a core muscle injury, but called himself healthy in early March.

The Dolphins have Reshad Jones and T.J. McDonald on the top line of their depth chart at safety.

Lawrence Taylor Authentic Jersey Jets defenseman Tyler Myers was out with a lower-body injury suffered in a collision with Marcus Foligno in Game 3. He was replaced by Tucker Poolman, a native of Iowa who played in college at North Dakota, on Winnipeg’s third blue line pairing with Chiarot. … Scheifele had a goal and five assists in four games against the Wild during the regular season. … Tyler Ennis took Parise’s spot, skating with Matt Cullen and Charlie Coyle on a new-look third line. Jason Zucker and Jordan Greenway joined Mikko Koivu, and Staal centered Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund. Coyle, Zucker and Niederreiter are without a point in the series.

Our unions have been discussing the potential impact of legalized gambling on players’ privacy and publicity rights, the integrity of our games and the volatility of our businesses. Betting on sports may become widely legal, but we cannot allow those who have lobbied the hardest for sports gambling to be the only ones controlling how it would be ushered into our businesses. The athletes must also have a seat at the table to ensure that players’ rights and the integrity of our games are protected.

It sounds good, but ultimately what does it Jake Fisher Youth jersey mean? While the unions are free to lobby the various states considering gambling legislation in the same way that the NBA and Major League Baseball have done, ultimately neither the leagues nor the unions will have any power or leverage to force the rules to tilt in their favor. Short of shutting down the various sports, there’s nothing they can do to get a seat at the table or a piece of the pie or anything else once gambling is legal.

Gambling has happened legally for decades in Nevada, and illegally for decades longer in every other American jurisdiction. If the integrity of any games was going to be impacted, it already has been. (And, indeed, there have been examples of it over the years.)

Josh Gordon Jersey re-signs with Browns

He’s back, and now he’s back under contract.
Men's Nike New York Jets #28 Curtis Martin Green Team Color Vapor Untouchable Elite Player NFL Jersey
Receiver Josh Gordon, a 2012 supplemental draft pick, still hasn’t racked up more than two accrued NFL seasons. Which Brandon Belt Jersey means he’s an exclusive-rights free agent. Which means he’s not a free agent at all.

And so Gordon, on the day the offseason program launches in Cleveland, has signed his one-year exclusive-rights tender.

The team announced on Monday morning that Gordon and three other exclusive-rights free agents have agreed to terms. Joining Gordon were receiver Matt Hazel, offensive lineman Austin Reiter, and fullback Danny Vitale.

Brian Elliott, yanked in Game 1, had another rough outing and might need to borrow fellow Wells Fargo Center tenant Joel Embiid’s black mask to have a better look at the puck.

Andrew Sendejo Mens Jersey Elliott, who had 21 saves, was stunned at how easily the Penguins scored twice in 5 seconds.

The Bills open their offseason program on Monday.

Derrick Rose Mens Jersey That said, Mike Tirico remains a possibility to do just the NFL Network games, according to sources. Fox had broached the idea of teaming Tirico with Manning, but NBC, where Tirico is the face of the network, was always reluctant.

The Post reported last week that Tirico could take over as the main host of NBC’s Football Night in America with Dan Patrick leaving the pregame show. Tirico is also the play-by-play man on NBC’s Notre Dame football games on Saturday. There are details to be worked out for Tirico to work on NFL Network as well. Tirico is the heir apparent to NBC’s Sunday night play-by-play man, Al Michaels, but Michaels, 73, has shown no indication he’s retiring.

On Fox’s second team on Sundays is Kevin Burkhardt. Burkhardt, like Buck, is very busy in the fall with his NFL schedule and as the host of Fox’s MLB playoff coverage.

On Thursdays, Fox had looked at the idea of Aikman doing studio work if Manning had signed on for games. But if Aikman is calling games, that idea may be shelved, besides a potential spot with Buck at the site of the game.

Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto Jersey shines in first action of season

J.T. Realmuto is back in the lineup for the Miami Marlins and ready to help their rebuild.
Men's Nike New York Giants #10 Eli Manning Game Royal Blue Team Color NFL Jersey
The athletic catcher was activated from the disabled list Tuesday and hit a three-run homer in his season debut, a 9-1 win over the New York Yankees. He had been sidelined by a bruised back since March 11.

Limited Kids Colorado Avalanche Jersey Hopefully, the spark lasts a lot longer than one game, Realmuto said. With these young guys, you can see they don’t get their heads down. They Womens Xavien Howard Jersey wash it away with their shower that night, and the next day they’re coming in hungry, ready to go try and win a ballgame.

Wallach was 4-for-31 (.129) with two RBIs and 17 strikeouts in nine games. He is the son of Miami bench coach Tim Wallach, who played 17 seasons in the majors.

Realmuto hit.278 with 17 home runs and 65 RBIs in 141 games last year. He batted.303 with 11 homers in 2016 and is a.280 career hitter with 38 home runs, 84 doubles and 13 triples over three-plus seasons in the big leagues.

It’s good to have him back, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. Just less pressure on other guys. Obviously, right now we’ve had trouble scoring runs, so he can be a part of that. Just another kind of cog in the wheel. So looking forward to seeing what it looks like.

With the Heat returning to South Beach for Game 3 on Thursday in much better spirits than after Saturday’s Game 1 drubbing, much of the credit for Miami’s surge falls squarely on Dwyane Wade, who was discarded by the Cleveland Cavaliers in their run-up to the playoffs and gridded as the second-worst jump shooter in the NBA this season.

Wade outscored Philadelphia 21-20 in the final 15 minutes of the first half. Then, after a 21-7 run by the Sixers cut Miami’s lead to a perilous two points, Spoelstra put Wade back on the court in the final minutes, and the Chicago native stepped through a portal and went back in time.

Wade stealthily swooped in on Dario Saric and hacked the ball away for a steal, then scored on a breakaway dunk. Wade then passed to a slashing James Johnson for a dunk on the next possession. Then came an offensive rebound that led to a jumper by Goran Dragic and, finally, Wade’s own long shot — a 23-foot dagger over Philly’s star rookie Ben Simmons — that iced the game.

Drew Brees aggressively purchased multi-million dollar pieces of jewelry.

A San Diego-based jeweler is crying foul over a lawsuit filed Monday by Drew Brees, claiming the Saints quarterback should be pointing the finger at himself for shelling out millions on jewelry over the years.

Brees, 39, claims Vahid Moradi of Southern California’s CJ Charles jewelry shop duped him out of millions, after discovering his collection of earrings, rings and watches is worth far less than what he originally paid, according to TMZ. Brees reportedly is seeking $9 million in damages.

But following a recent independent appraisal, Moradi’s lawyer, Eric M. George, said Brees’ aggressive spending is not his client’s problem.

“Years later, claiming to suffer ‘cash flow problems,’ he tried to bully my client into undoing the transactions,” George said.

“The biggest thing I enjoy is being around bigger guys, like last year with Matt Holliday or with A-Rod,’’ Judge said. “Those are bigger guys and I can relate to them as a hitter. If you give me a scouting report and the pitcher is 50 percent this or 40 percent this, 10 percent this. That scouting report may work for a [Ronald] Torreyes or [Clint] Frazier or somebody, but it’s not going to work for me. They are not going to pitch Torreyes like they pitch to Matt Holliday. So having another guy like Stanton, we have a chance if he’s hitting in front of me or I’m hitting in front of him, we get to see how we are going to get pitched.

Larry Nance Jr. did a decent job switching onto Indy guards, though Oladipo drilled a couple of stone-cold jumpers in his face. If Nance can hang — and he is hit or miss on switches — the Cavs might as well just start him over Green. He is a better defender and rebounder, and the Cavs can use him as a screener to unlock LeBron’s spread pick-and-roll game:

But this is surrender masquerading as aggression. The Cavs have no faith in Love, no matter what strategy they use, so they’re loading up behind him. When Love hung back in semi-garbage time, Oladipo zoomed right around him:

Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said Monday the team will go to Laramie, Wyo., next week to get a closer look at Allen, whose Pro Day they attended last Friday.

The Jets have had private workouts already with UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield. Maccagnan said they have nothing scheduled with USC’s Sam Darnold, a possible sign they believe he will be taken No. 1 overall by the Browns.

“With Sam, we had actually gotten quite a bit of exposure on him, so we feel pretty good about him,” Maccagnan said.

Longtime Steelers linebacker James Harrison Jersey retires

Five-time Pro Bowler and longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison聽announced聽on Instagram on Monday morning that he is retiring from the NFL.
Womens Curtis Granderson Jersey Men's Game Chandler Jones Black Jersey: Alternate #55 NFL Arizona Cardinals Nike
Womens Albert Wilson Jersey I’ve missed way too much for way too long… and I’m done, Harrison wrote in a photo caption, alongside pictures of his children. Many thanks to my family, coaches, the fans, and everyone who played a role in my football life.

This is the second time Harrison has announced his retirement; he also announced that he was leaving the NFL in 2014 after a one-year stint with the Cincinnati Bengals, but he rejoined the Steelers the following season.

They had the better deal, Williamson said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. At the end of the day, it’s definitely about playing a sport that you love, but you’ve got to make sure that you can benefit financially from it. . . . The Jets had the better deal.

The Jets dropped a three-year, $22.5 contract on Williamson, which included $16 million guaranteed. That was enough to make them the pick among the four teams he was considering.

The Jets made him a priority in free agency, and they paid a premium to land him. He’s still learning about their defense and how he fits into it, but they have the benefit of knowing he’s going to give an honest assessment.

He’s established himself as an integral component of Minnesota’s stellar defense and now joins Harrison Smith,聽Xavier Rhodes,聽Everson Griffen聽and Linval Joseph as defensive pillars inked to long-term extensions, per聽Chris Wesseling聽of NFL.com. That leaves Anthony Barr and Danielle Hunter in line for extensions in the future, cap considerations pending, a fact that didn’t slip Keith Hernandez Womens Jersey past Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com:聽

I figured, when he went back … I was thinking in my head, you know, ‘How long is he going to stay down there for?’ And then the s— hits the fan, Ken says.

After returning to Florida, Jamie switched houses again, this time moving to a sober home in Boynton Beach called Sea of Recovery, which, he told his parents, cost just $50 a month.

Detroit is likely looking for more defensive line help early in the draft, but general manager Bob Quinn also made an early offseason declaration that the team would finally fix its running game. The addition of an aging LeGarrette Blount in free agency doesn’t scream solution. The Lions need Barkley to clean up the telegraphed, inefficient mess of Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick.

And that’s where things get interesting. There’s no question Barkley looks like an ideal running back for the modern NFL. Now, teams want players who can not only stay on the field for all three downs, but as every down is potentially a passing down and versatility is the order of the day, players like Barkley (and there aren’t too many of them) can fit in multiple offenses to the point where he could be called scheme-transcendent.

But a generational talent? At that point, you want to see a guy who can bring a defense to its knees in just about any way possible. And for all of Barkley’s skills, the one thing holding him back鈥攁nd Brayden McNabb Jersey this could be a more pronounced issue in the NFL鈥攊s that he struggles to run with power after contact between the tackles.

Browns trade Kevin Hogan Jersey to Washington

The team in a perpetual search for a quarterback keeps trading quarterbacks.
Elite Manti Te’o Jersey Men's Nike Minnesota Vikings #71 Riley Reiff Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
The Browns announced they have traded Kevin Hogan to Washington, in a deal involving a swap of sixth-round picks. The Browns moved from 205th to 188th Nicklas Backstrom Jersey in the sixth round in the deal.

I take it as a one-year ‘prove-it’ deal, Melvin told co-host Gil Brandt and me on SiriusXM NFL Radio. I’ve shown the world that I can play football at a high level. I truly do still believe I am a No. 1 corner.

Elite Michel Briere Jersey It’s hard to fight that stigma that ‘This guy hasn’t played a full season. This guy, he’s unproven,’ or whatever else they may have said during this time in free agency. I’m very surprised that (interest) is not where I thought it would be at or the respect level is not what I thought I would have by my performance. But I take it as motivation.

For that, Melvin has never lacked.

I thought of myself as one of the best youth football players around, he said. But then when I get to high school varsity my junior year, I didn’t play a down. That was new because I never experienced anything like that before.

Melvin rebounded to become a senior starter as a two-way player for a team he said didn’t have any other FBS prospects. Even though he stood out, Melvin didn’t draw strong interest from FBS college programs.

Having already sent DeShone Kizer to Green Bay for defensive back Damarious Randall and Cody Kessler to Jacksonville for a conditional seventh-rounder, the Browns have now cleared the decks from last year, which seems reasonable.

They’ve already acquired Tyrod Taylor in another deal and signed backup Drew Stanton, to go with whatever fortunate soul gets picked first overall.

In Washington, Hogan joins Colt McCoy and Stephen Morris behind starter Alex Smith.

Indiana shot 54 percent from the field for the game.
