Report: Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos working on a revised contract

The issue with reworking Manning’s deal is that he has two years left meaning that any potential converted bonus would have to be prorated equally over those two seasons. That would mean creating more dead money on 2016’s cap space when another group of FA’s headed by Von Miller will hit the market.

Before the beginning of the 2013 season, Manning converted 10 million into a “cash advance” that prorated the 10 million equally over several seasons, leaving his cap hit lower in several seasons (19 million as opposed to 21 million).

But we took the time to collect the instant reactons of your favorite NFL players and league personaltys in regards to how they see the mystery dress. If you hear of any other dress takes please leave them in the comment section below.

That saved $4.875 million in cap space in 2015. He didn’t necessarily fail to live up to the contract, but the Colts wanted to clear up cap space after spending big the past two offseasons, and felt good about Art Jones to fulfill the spot left on the defensive line.

We shall see. Right now, they’re not disclosing all of the team plans, but in any balanced zone-blocking scheme, the running back is a very important figure. Just look at Seattle or Houston.

Offense isn’t the only overhaul for the Broncos. The Broncos are moving to Wade Phillips’ multiple 3-4 defense and while they already have a good solid core of 3-4 type players, they may need to add some things via the draft.

Why Carmelo Anthony can feel why LeBron James lashed out

Martin Hanzal Youth Jersey
New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony had heard about how LeBron James had finally had enough and unleashed on Charles Barkley.

While Anthony didn¡¯t want to get involved, he said he fully understood why James, his good friend, had reached his boiling point after taking the high road whenever Barkley was critical of James on TV.

¡°At the end of the day, I think he¡¯s human,¡± Anthony said at the morning shootaround before the weary Knicks were drilled by the red-hot Washington Wizards 117-101 on Tuesday night. ¡°Like, we all are human. Even though we are considered these kind of superheroes, super athletes, and nothing is supposed to affect us and we just go through life just taking it on the chin, it affects us in certain ways.

John Hannah Youth Jersey Tomlinson’s No. 21 jersey was retired by the Chargers in 2015.

The only blemish on Tomlinson¡¯s record — if you can call it that — is that he never played for a Super Bowl title. Teams Tomlinson played for finished 5-5 in the postseason.

“The one [negative] thing that I think is totally honest and true about my career is I never won a championship,” Tomlinson told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “That¡¯s totally fair for people to judge me on that. But I know eventually, with my numbers, I¡¯m a Hall of Famer.”

Former Chargers teammate Drew Brees said he will be on hand in Canton to watch Tomlinson be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

“He’s a special guy, a special player,” Brees told The Mighty 1090 AM radio. Brees served as the Chargers’ starting quarterback from 2002 to 2005. “He made everyone around him better. He was a phenomenal leader. When LT spoke, everybody listened. And he backed it up with his actions, more so than anything he could ever say.”

Joerger says his dominant message to Cousins has been “next play,” to move on quickly from whatever upset him

Elite Youth Neftali Feliz Jersey “Kings not a coveted destination among draftees & agents.” — Sean Cunningham, a Sacramento sports producer and reporter for the ABC affiliate.

As the Kings struggle to build some semblance of a positive identity as a basketball operation, the clock is ticking on the prime of one of the game’s most talented big men, DeMarcus Cousins. And while some superstars are plug-and-play, Cousins is more fragile. He runs on trust, and disarray undermines it. In a perfect world, Sacramento would have already had a well-honed operation when he arrived, fabric in the rafters, gravitas at the highest levels of management and ownership, a coach with a historic body of work, another star in the locker room who has won big games and whose respect Cousins knows he needs. At present, the Kings have none of that. The inertia of losing seems to be the only constant in Sacramento.

“That’s the perception we have around the league,” Joerger says. “That’s what we have to change.”

Joerger says his dominant message to Cousins has been “next play,” to move on quickly from whatever upset him.

Game Chris Capuano Jersey NOT SO LONG ago, the Sacramento Kings were a model sports franchise, market size be damned: Loud and proud Kings fans packed the suburban concrete bunker called Arco Arena. When then-Lakers coach Phil Jackson called Sacramento a “cowtown” and its fans semi-civilized and maybe redneck in some form or fashion, they responded to him with a din of cowbells. And the NBA’s loudest fans were rewarded, in kind, as Chris Webber, Mike Bibby, Vlade Divac, Peja Stojakovic and Doug Christie drove Rick Adelman’s handsome corner offense all the way to the 2002 Western Conference finals. The Lakers could barely contain them, and won that series only thanks in part to an epic Robert Horry game winner and, according to an open letter Ralph Nader later sent to the commissioner, Laker-slanted refereeing that “goes beyond any random display of poor performance.”

Belichick always insisted that he wore hoodies because they were comfortable

IT HAS BEEN one of the most overlooked transformations in the NFL over the past few years: Belichick wears nice dress shirts to news conferences more often than any other coach.

You always hear about how head coaches are CEOs. Well, Belichick, of all people, is the only one who actually dresses the part. What has made all of this even more remarkable is that as he has tightened up his look, he has drastically scaled back his deployment of his famous gray, serrated hoodie. Yes, he wore a blue hoodie three times this year, but not once did he deploy the iconic gray one with the hacked-off sleeves.

In fact, he hasn’t worn that particular hoodie since January 2013. (The gray one did make an appearance during one game this season against the Jets, but the sleeves were still intact.) You can place a prop bet on which hoodie Belichick will wear on Sunday, but you might do well to bet none.

And so, a question: What causes someone who specializes in cutting the drag by eliminating his clothing choices suddenly add drag at age 64?

Game Womens Randy Johnson Jersey Belichick always insisted that he wore hoodies because they were comfortable. But that look — standing on a sideline vaguely and proudly disheveled and emperor-like — became a central tenet to his professional identity. Like what the black turtleneck did to Steve Jobs and what the gray tee does to Mark Zuckerberg, the hoodie spoke for Belichick in a way that he couldn’t speak for himself.
Elite Kids Steven Stamkos Jersey
It prompted David Letterman to call him a “Sherpa on the sideline.” Biographer David Halberstam used it to show how Belichick consciously avoided “the trappings of celebrity,” similar to how Eddie Vedder lived in a self-imposed depraved state during the recording of “Vs.” Columnist Dan Wetzel of Yahoo!

Quinn rewarded his offense by leaving it on the field for fourth down

This season, with the league’s best offense, Quinn has rightfully been more aggressive. Atlanta went for it 13 times on fourth down while the game was within 14 points or less, tied for the eighth-most times in the league. The Falcons went 7-for-13 on those tries, a 53.9 percent mark that comes in right around the league average of 51.4 percent.

While some of those were desperate plays to extend games, Quinn had moments of genuine aggressiveness, most of which came in the no man’s land between midfield and Matt Bryant’s field goal range. He notably went for it on fourth-and-1 on Atlanta’s 45-yard line on the opening possession of overtime against San Diego, only to be stuffed and end up losing the game on the next drive. It was the correct call, even if the move didn’t pay off.

One notable time Quinn went for it on fourth-and-1 was on the opening possession against the Packers in Week 8. It was on the Packers’ 42-yard line, but Quinn could have sent out his punting unit and nobody would have batted an eye.

After Matt Ryan overcame a pair of illegal-formation penalties by picking up 19 yards on third-and-20, Quinn rewarded his offense by leaving it on the field for fourth down. Devonta Freeman ran for 17 yards. The drive ended in a field goal that proved to be valuable in what ended up as a 33-32 nail-biter.

This video of Torrey Smith’s dancing 1-year-old son proves he’s ready for primetime

Mens Anibal Sanchez Jersey
Torrey Smith’s son is a better dancer than you. Okay, maybe that’s harsh — you could be a good dancer, but this 1-year-old doing “The Whip” is probably cuter.

Limited Charles Tillman Jersey They have the foundation to build something for the long term.

It’s hard enough to pick a potential winner of the Super Bowl next year, let alone a potential winner of several Super Bowls over the next five years. But, if we’re talking about teams that are potentially on the verge of becoming great, a few come to mind.

The first few are the closest to “one player away” from being among the league’s best, in my opinion: The Chiefs have an excellent defense with elite pass rushers, some studs up front and a talented secondary.

They’ve got one of the best running backs in the league. They’ve got a strong GM from the Ron Wolf/Ted Thompson scouting tree, John Dorsey, who’s added a ton of talent and depth to the roster over the last two seasons. They have a proven and highly respected coach in Andy Reid. He’s honed his system over decades in the NFL. I’m not looking to insult Alex Smith, who is efficient and works within Reid’s system, but what kind of team would we be looking at if Kansas City had a top-five, even top-10 quarterback under center?

“J.J. had to say it’s a bit high school-ish that I take selfies, and I think he still rags me on Instagram every time he posts a selfie,” Mettenberger said on Tuesday, via The Houston Chronicle. “At the same time, if that’s high school-ish, he got a letterman jacket made, a Texans letterman jacket. That’s pretty high school-ish to me, don’t you think?”

The Boston Celtics are 13-3 over their last 16 games and have distinguished themselves in the Eastern Conference

The response is relatively simple. Players are advised, in a letter to their head coach, that they are assessed as either a first-round pick, a second-round pick or one who is advised to remain in school. Vincent also makes himself available for telephone conversations.

“We don’t get into a lot of specifics,” Vincent said. “This isn’t the place to tell student-athletes what they need to improve on or where they’re lacking or whatever. It’s intended as the best objective assessment we can provide.”

The CAC doesn’t provide draft projections beyond the second round?

Wake exceeded everyone’s expectations in 2016 — including those of the Dolphins’ coaching staff — by leading the team with 11.5 sacks. He was 34 and coming off a season-ending Achilles injury. Coach Adam Gase initially brought Wake off the bench and kept him on a snap count; in a Week 2 loss to the Patriots, Wake played just 15 snaps, which Miami admitted right away was a mistake. Wake wanted more and eventually was put in the starting lineup in October, and that led to his Pro Bowl season.
Game Womens Kyle Emanuel Jersey
No one’s comeback journey compares to Pitta’s. He fractured his right hip in 2013 and 2014, then didn’t even play in 2015, causing most to believe his career was over. There were doctors, friends and family members who discouraged Pitta from returning to football. To play his first full season since 2012 was an accomplishment in itself. But what made Pitta’s comeback more amazing: He led all NFL tight ends with a career-best 86 catches. Only Antonio Brown had more receptions than Pitta among AFC North players. Read the full vote.

The Falcons continue in the playoffs without injured defensive end Adrian Clayborn

Atlanta Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn, one of Atlanta’s top pass-rushers, suffered a torn biceps in Saturday’s playoff game against Seattle and will miss the rest of the postseason, sources tell ESPN.

“I feel absolutely terrible for my man AJClay,” agent Blake Baratz tweeted. “Keep your head up. You were a huge part of this success. I’m so proud of you Adrian.”

The news was first reported by the NFL Network.
David Savard Womens Jersey
Clayborn missed three games in December after surgery for a meniscus tear and torn MCL in his left knee. He had been projected to miss more time, but he used stem-cell treatment to hasten his return.

Only hyperaggressive (and often intelligent) teams like the Ravens might consider going for it in that situation in a regular-season game, but the game situation behooves the Texans to go for it in that spot.

The Texans’ decision to punt ultimately worked out when Brady surprisingly threw the first of his two interceptions on the next play, but again, O’Brien didn’t use the field position to his advantage. Houston moved the ball to the Patriots’ 9-yard line, but after Akeem Hunt came up 3 yards short of the marker on a third-and-long screen, O’Brien sent out his field goal unit.

Jake Rudock Womens Jersey You can’t trade field goals with an offense like the Patriots and expect to win, especially when you’re already down 11 points. When your offense is incapable of steadily moving the ball downfield, short fields from turnovers are gifts you need to capitalize on. It’s far more likely you’ll end up with another chance to kick a field goal later in the game than you will end up in the red zone for a likely touchdown opportunity. Brian Burke’s AFA model suggested that the Texans needed just a 31 percent chance of converting to justify going for it.

Sam Bradford was the only Eagles QB who didn’t play

We’ll see how the Vikings look a day after head coach Mike Zimmer called an early end to practice due to everything seemingly going wrong. The Vikings are a young team with a lot to prove, and Zimmer will be expecting the best out of them. They did play in the Hall of Fame Game, and looked solid in a win over the Steelers, but apparently Zimmer needs to see more from the team in practice.

Whatever the case, the Vikings will be hoping to spoil the first game action of the aforementioned Winston. The Buccaneers made Winston the top pick and didn’t even set him up with a quarterback battle in training camp. Winston was immediately named the starter, and he’ll have a chance to show his stuff against the Vikings on Saturday.

On the other side of the ball, the Buccaneers need to find some kind of pass rush (and, similarly, the Vikings need to show they can handle one to keep Teddy Bridgewater clean). Don’t expect the Buccaneers to reveal any of their elaborate blitz schemes in the preseason, but they should send extra men early and often in this game.

Tebow completed 6 of 12 passes for 69 yards, and took three sacks. But there was a highlight for all of the Tebow Maniacs out there when he ran in a 7-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter following Indy’s second lost fumble of the contest.

Sam Bradford was the only Eagles QB who didn’t play, but Kelly says he will make his preseason debut next week.

you know about, plus he’s getting Victor Cruz back. Rueben Randle is still there, and the Giants brought in James Jones earlier this month. Tight end Larry Donnell had a breakout last year. And a running back triumvirate of Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams offers ability and versatility. Manning had one of his best seasons in 2014, and 2015 could be even better.

Roethlisberger revels in cold-weather games, going 22-7 for his career in temperatures below 32 degrees

He summed up his belief in his ability to make the switch after his first training camp practice in 2015: “It’s the effort and how you go about the task.”

When Pryor made the transition, he went full speed, spending a good part of two summers working with former receiver Randy Moss at his camp in North Carolina. A typical day there, Pryor said, started at 8 a.m. with lifting and cardio work, followed by 2 1/2 hours on the field working on technique and drills. The day concluded with what sounds like a test of endurance; Pryor and the other receivers at the camp ran 10 to 15 80-yard sprints with a 15-second break between each run. The words “80 yards” and “sprint” usually are not correlated.

The second facet of the approach was the mental one. When it was put to Pryor midway through the season that his transition seemed impossible, he merely said: “Nothing is impossible.”

This is a player who will never lack for confidence or belief in himself. That can rub people the wrong way, but it also makes him who he is.

Also, Roethlisberger revels in cold-weather games, going 22-7 for his career in temperatures below 32 degrees.

Game Youth Ty Sambrailo Jersey But there’s one stat that Roethlisberger would no doubt like to redirect: his home-vs.-away production. While averaging 332 yards and nearly three touchdowns per game in his last 16 Heinz Field appearances, he has averaged 279 yards, 1.06 touchdowns and 1.06 interceptions per road game during that 16-game clip.

Recently, Roethlisberger has referenced his ability to control the noise and call a tighter cadence at home. Arrowhead Stadium will not help him in this area.

Roethlisberger plans to combat Arrowhead with speed.

“Tempo,” Roethlisberger told 93.7 The Fan. “The faster we can get to the line of scrimmage, the more time we can communicate and check and make those things happen.”
Game Youth Teemu Selanne Jersey
Roethlisberger has had a solid season — not his best, but very good. He’ll have at least one chance to punctuate it with a legacy moment.
