As of now, Arizona’s starter is Bradford, according to Wilks. But Wilks also didn’t commit to Bradford in Week 1, instead saying that the best 11 players will be on the field.

If I’m not [the starter], I’m going to support the team, Rosen said. I’m not Team Josh Rosen playing on the Arizona Cardinals. I’m part of the Arizona Cardinals and I want to win Super Bowls for the Arizona Cardinals, and I think over time, that’ll happen.

Rosen was openly critical of President Donald Trump in a 2016 Instagram post that showed him wearing a hat with a ribbon that said F— Trump on it while golfing at one of Trump’s golf courses. He will be living and playing in a conservative state, but Rosen isn’t worried about that.

Claude Giroux says booing fans may have caused Flyers to press at home

The Philadelphia Flyers lost all three of their first-round playoff games at home to the Pittsburgh Penguins, losing the series in six games. On Wednesday, captain Claude Giroux said the team may have tried too hard at home, pressing, in part, because of the boos coming from the Flyers fans.

Philadelphia was outscored 18-6 at home and went 0-for-13 on the power play. Center Sean Couturier told the Inquirer that while the reaction from the fans can be frustrating at times, he doesn’t think it contributed to the team’s struggles at home against the Penguins.

“There’s some nights they probably had the right to boo us. We were bad enough and we probably deserved it,” Couturier said. “… I don’t really think it had an effect on the results of our home record. I think we’re a tight group and we kind of shut it off.”

“I said, ‘What’s going on?'” Babcock told reporters of his conversation with Matthews. “It’s interesting, in Toronto, you [media] do such a good job. You’re everywhere. You’re under the bench, you’re in the crack in the door, you’re in the car, you’re in the parking lot. You’re everywhere, and anytime anybody does anything, there’s a big story.

“I asked him flat out, ‘Do we have any [issues]?’ He was sitting right there. We don’t seem to.”

Matthews, who had just a goal and an assist against Boston, said talk of friction also was news to him.

“I don’t know what that’s all about,” he said. “Our relationship’s fine. Obviously, you guys can speculate all you want, but I think it’s pointless.

“Stuff happens, people speculate. I can tell you right now it’s not the case.”

The 20-year-old from Arizona scored 34 goals in the regular season despite missing 20 games due to injury, but admitted to being frustrated in the Bruins series following a Game 7 in which Toronto blew a 4-3 lead in the third period and lost 7-4.dolphins_034

Conn Smythe Watch: Top 10 candidates after Round 1

Eight teams are still standing in the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs after a first round that was notable for its relative brevity, sans the seven-game Toronto Maple Leafs-Boston Bruins series. That said, there was enough of a sample to deliver 10 players who are on track for the Conn Smythe Trophy should their teams have the good fortune of advancing through the playoffs.
Youth Lance Kendricks Jersey Youth Cortez Kennedy Limited Black Nike Jersey: NFL Seattle Seahawks #96 2016 Salute to Service
Sometimes the Conn Smythe goes not only to the most valuable player but also to the most compelling narrative. Holtby has a .932 save percentage and was solid in the Capitals’ first-round win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. But it’s his journey from the bench in Games 1 and 2 to reclaim the crease as the starter that attracts MVP votes.
Game Brett Hull Jersey
We’ll give Watson the edge here with four goals and three assists in six games, including at least a point in every game. He’s already doubled his career postseason goal total.

Ovechkin has been labeled Frank Clark Jersey a playoff choker for years, which is symptomatic of his team’s failures, because in reality, the Capitals’ star has put up solid postseason numbers. In 103 playoff games since 2008, Ovechkin has 51 goals.

The Bruins have a few heroes after their dramatic seven-game victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Rookie Jake DeBrusk has five goals. Torey Krug has nine points to lead all defensemen in the postseason. But Pasta gets the nod here for being tied for the playoff lead with 13 points, having that six-point Game 2 as a calling card and being the de facto representative of the Bruins’ dominant top line.

[Jackson’s] a great quarterback. But Joe Flacco is our quarterback, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. That’s the thing we got to remember. Lamar is going to have a great chance to develop. When you get to this stage in a quarterback’s career, you’ve seen done in New England and you’ve seen done in a lot of places. This doesn’t really change things in a sense that we’re going to go with Joe and he’s going to roll.

The big thing is he’s a quarterback. That’s the first thing to remember, Harbaugh said. He’s a quarterback through and through. He’s a playmaker. We do some analytics, and when the ball is in his hands, there hasn’t been a better playmaker really in the last few years coming out.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome called it masterful how the Ravens were able to trade down twice to get tight end Hayden Hurst and then move back into the first round for Jackson. Baltimore traded its picks in the second and fourth rounds as well as its 2019 second-round pick to Philadelphia for the No. 32 overall pick and the Eagles’ fourth-rounder.

Towns added a basket after that before Houston scored the next eight points to extend the lead to 81-68 with 2 1/2 minutes left in the quarter.

A ruling in the case which New Jersey is spearheading could come as early as next week. The two leagues, along with the National Football League, the National Hockey Association and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, have long fought New Jersey’s push for sports betting.

If the Giants make a slight trade down, it likely will be with Chubb or Nelson in mind.

“You have to stay with the value because I’ve heard a million and one (stories) and you’ve probably heard half a million where a guy says,’Don’t worry, he’ll be there in the next round,'” Gettleman said. “Then the next round comes around and he ain’t there. You have to stay with your board, you have to stay with value. You can’t get too cute.”

In Nelson’s case, the Giants researched interior offensive linemen who have been selected with the No. 2 pick in a draft. They only found one — Tom Mack in 1966 — according to Gettleman.

But the Redskins took right guard Brandon Scherff with the No. 5 pick in 2015 and he has made two Pro Bowls in three seasons. The Giants reportedly targeted Scherff at No. 9.

Three longtime NFL scouts explained the parameters of a potential trade.

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.

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.

He ran one of the fastest 40 times at the combine, showing he has the ability to run with the NFL’s deep-threat receivers. Jackson height could be an issue with teams.

I don’t understand that thought process. I mean, Troy’s great, but there’s a stable of other guys who can do it just really well. So, yeah, I’m frustrated.
Women's Adidas Nicolas Meloche Authentic White/Pink NHL Jersey: Colorado Avalanche #41 Fashion
Mayock is right; plenty of people could do a great job calling high-profile games. But when all things are largely equal from a substance standpoint, style drives the decision. The league and the networks want names, faces, and voices that cry out, This is a big deal! That’s why FOX went after Peyton, and that’s why Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will pull double duty 鈥?and why CBS and NBC previously had play-by-play announcers and/or analysts working two games per week.

As Mayock points out, he had climbed to the top of the ladder, with the significant platform that comes from NBC’s Notre Dame games to NFLN’s Thursday Night Football before the league sold the package to broadcast networks for simulcast. Mayock was indeed riding high, with Womens Toni Kukoc Jersey plenty of praise and the accolades that go along with it.

Prosecutors charged Foster with one felony for that violent act, another felony for forcefully attempting to prevent the victim from reporting the crime, and a third felony for possessing an assault weapon. Foster is also charged with a misdemeanor for possessing a large capacity magazine. The charges could carry up to 11 years in prison.

The 49ers drafted Foster in the first round last year despite questions about character issues that had some teams reportedly taking him off their draft boards. Team owner Jed York was noncommittal last month about whether Foster has a future with the team. Foster will also be subject to league discipline, with the NFL conducting its own investigation that could find him in violation of the league’s personal conduct policy even if he is acquitted.

Jeff Green was awful, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Lue yanks him from the starting five, or at least pulls him earlier. The Cavs can’t run an optimal spread pick-and-roll with Green on the wing, because the defense ignores him.

Teams have no legitimate reason to ask players about kneeling

When the national anthem controversy erupted in 2016 and became an even bigger issue for the league in 2017, the NFL made one point very clear publicly: Players have the right to kneel or otherwise demonstrate during the national anthem. Privately (and at times publicly), some of the NFL’s teams have sent a very different message.
NFL Courtney Upshaw Men's Elite Black Jersey: #91 Atlanta Falcons Nike Alternate Vapor Untouchable
This duality has resulted in a collusion grievance from free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and a collusion Womens Tramaine Brock Jersey grievance could (in theory) be the path that free-agent safety Eric Reid eventually chooses to follow.

Setting aside personal opinions on whether it’s proper or improper to use the anthem as a mechanism for protest, as a matter of labor and employment law, it’s proper for players to choose to protest during the anthem. Which means that, as a matter of labor and employment law, it’s not proper for the NFL or its teams to hold protesting during the anthem against any player who chooses to protest.

With Kaepernick, the NFL’s teams had a chance to fix the problem before it got out of hand. With Reid, the window is still open. Once it closes, however, the NFL could end up with a second player claiming that the league and/or its teams are working in coordination to keep out of football one of the players who have been at the core of the issue of protests during the national anthem.

The Browns traded all three of last year’s quarterbacks, sending DeShone Kizer to the Packers, Cody Kessler to the Jaguars and Kevin Hogan to Washington. They’ve already acquired Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton, and will add another in two weeks when they draft one first overall.

Limited Womens Kevin Durant Jersey Sometimes the wholesale changes work out. After the 1961 season, they traded Pro Bowler Milt Plum and released backup Len Dawson (a future Hall of Famer with the Chiefs). They traded for Frank Ryan and brought in Jim Ninowski as his backup, and two years later, won an NFL title with those two.

But as with most things Cleveland and quarterbacks, success tends to be short lived.

The last clean sweep was after the 2009 season, when they let Derek Anderson leave in free agency and traded Brady Quinn, and replaced them with Colt McCoy, Jake Delhomme, and Seneca Wallace.
Limited Womens Sean Monahan Jersey
After the 2004 season, they released Jeff Garcia, traded Luke McCown and let Kelly Holcomb leave in free agency, and replaced them with Trent Dilfer and Charlie Frye.

And while a good Milt Plum reference wasn’t anything we were expecting today, the Browns can only hope it works out the way it did in the 1960s, instead of the way it generally has.

Could another 49ers-Patriots quarterback trade be looming?

Last season, the Patriots and 49ers provided a major surprise with a deal that sent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from New England to San Francisco. Six months later, could they possibly get together for another quarterback deal?

As the draft approaches, there’s a sense that the top four quarterbacks have been whittled to a top three, with separation developing between the trio of Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, and Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen, who many regard as Joffrey Lupul Youth jersey the guy with the highest floor of all 2018 quarterbacks. If Rosen trickles out of the top five and if neither the Dolphins nor the Bills jump up to No. 6 (Colts), No. 7 (Bucs), or No. 8 (Bears) to get him, the 49ers will be sitting there at No. 9.

Honestly, just take it one day at a time, Martin said, via Deepi Sidhu of the team website. Right now, I’m doing the workouts, doing the meetings, trying to get mental and trying to get back.

Martin had the same injury during training camp his rookie season, costing him all of 2016 after surgery. He started 14 games last season before injuring his ankle in a December 17 game against Jacksonville.

While trusting Facebook with any of your information seems especially risky these days, watching the broadcast did not cost any actual money.

When Scott Braun, the play-by-play man on the Mets-Phillies game, began the exclusive Facebook stream Wednesday, he announced, “We are making baseball history in the broadcast world.”

Initially, it felt like they were just annoying fans, who either didn’t have a Facebook login, didn’t want to give the social media behemoth any information or, when connected, couldn’t figure out how to sweep away the comments and emojis to watch their beloved Mets.

With Wednesday’s game unavailable on SNY or any other television network, fans who wanted to see it had no choice but to log in to Facebook for the first foray on the exclusive 25-game, Wednesday afternoon package on the social network.

In the deal, MLB tore a page out of the NFL playbook. MLB had 25 games of already-sold Wednesday-afternoon inventory and sold them again, receiving another $30 million from Facebook, a source confirmed. When you spread it around to all 30 clubs, that money can help the Wilpons pay Hansel Robles’ $900,000 salary for the season.

Once people figured out the kinks, it didn’t feel that much different than any other streaming most people do these days. Was it history? Well, no, it didn’t feel that big, and most New York baseball fans are probably just happy they are likely done with it for this season.

Several key Flames dealt with injuries during the season, including goalie Mike Smith, defenseman TJ Brodie and forwards Sean Monahan and Matthew Tkachuk. Meanwhile, the free-agency signing of 45-year-old winger Jaromir Jagr was a bust; Jagr played only 22 games before he was put on waivers in late January.

Calgary also fired assistant coaches Dave Cameron and Paul Jerrard on Tuesday.

As was expected, the Calgary Flames fired coach Glen Gulutzan on Tuesday after two seasons. The team was a massive disappointment: a lifeless offensive group, including an atrocious power play, propped up by goalie Mike Smith like he was doing a community theater version of “Weekend At Bernie’s.” So where do they go now? GM Brad Treliving has a relationship with highly regarded Dave Tippett going back to their Coyotes days. He selected Carolina Hurricanes coach Bill Peters, who is under contract but apparently allowed to shop his services, as head coach for the 2016 world championships. AHL coach Ryan Huska will be in the mix; will former NY Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault as well? And what about Albertan farmer (and former Flames coach) Darryl Sutter?
