Ballard, an NFL scout and executive since 2000, already put his stamp on the franchise.

Starting inside linebacker D’Qwell Jackson was released as a cost-cutting measure. Veteran cornerback Patrick Robinson was released after one season. Safety Mike Adams signed with the Carolina Panthers as a free agent while fellow free agent Erik Walden is still trying to find work as a linebacker after nine seasons in the NFL. Starting tight end Dwayne Allen, who was one year into a four-year deal, was traded to the New England Patriots.

The Colts would have four picks after that one: two in the fourth round (122nd and 144th overall), one in the fifth (158th) and one in the sixth (200th). This year’s seventh-round pick was traded to the Cleveland Browns.

Exactly one year ago today, the Carolina Panthers were coming off a 15-1 season and a Super Bowl appearance. And even after that title-game loss, Cam Newton had won.

He’d endured five seasons of doubts and dog-whistles to become the 2015 MVP, an unstoppable monster helming the league’s deadliest offense, and he did it without a particularly good offensive line or receiving corps. The Panthers were a blue-and-silver end zone party and Big Cam’s smile was infectious. Yes, 365 days ago, the haters and doubters were left sputtering, and if you had Newton as anything other than your Justin Patton Youth jersey No. 1 QB for fantasy football, you were certifiable.

And now he’s kind of an afterthought.

Here’s why this duo is so difficult to defend.

Ingram is used on early downs, often running up the middle behind center Max Unger and right guard Larry Warford, where he is averaging 5.9 yards per carry, 3.2 of those yards coming after contact. Ingram is also always moving forward, with both the power to run over defenders and the agility to make them miss overall, only LeGarrette Blount has more yards per carry after contact this season, according to the game charters at Pro Football Focus.

A strong run Dion Sims Womens Jersey game also alleviates pressure on the quarterback, helping Brees have one of his most efficient seasons to date. The 17-year veteran leads the league in completion rate 71.7 percent and is only being pressured on 21.7 percent of his drop backs, his lowest rate since 2006, the first year data is available from Pro Football Focus. No other passer has a clean pocket as often this season, and that’s great for Brees, whose passer rating drops from 115.9 to 53.1 under pressure this season.

Despite missing starting guard Rodney Hood because of a leg injury, Utah set season bests for points in the first quarter (39) and first half (76). It never trailed while ending the Clippers’ six-game winning streak.

Just playing with force, Jazz center Rudy Gobert said. Being aggressive. Moved the ball. Our defense got a lot of deflections, a lot of steals and got a lot of easy stuff from that.

It felt good, but at the same time they were scoring too much. So it didn’t feel great. It’s kind of like you’re having fun offensively, but can’t get a stop. If you get stops, the game is over in the third.

Playing short-handed, the Minnesota Timberwolves grew up a bit.

Andrew Wiggins scored a season-high 40 points and Jeff Teague added 30 to help them hang on for a 126-118 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night that snapped the Wolves’ four-game road skid.

2018 NFL Draft: Baker Mayfield clarifies #GetMeToMiami comments

Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield dropped a serious hint as to his preferred NFL destination on Instagram Thursday.

Just so everybody knows… I commented about playing for Miami because I was talking to a former Sooner in Kenny Stills, he wrote. Everybody can relax, I will play anywhere that gives me a chance. I’m not picky, I will go anywhere and strive to uplift a franchise and win ball games.

Yori, 54, has been out of coaching since she left Nebraska.

Bringing Connie on staff will have tremendous value for our program both in the immediate future and in the long term, Flanery said. Day-to-day she adds unique experience as a former head coach to break down game film and ask questions from a different perspective. In addition, she is someone who has both understood our program from the inside but has also been outside the program for many years. She’ll be able to give us an idea of where we can improve overall.

Actually they had pictures from the game, Fournette said (via ESPN). I think her in-laws didn’t know who I was until everybody started taking pictures with me and then they were like, ‘We were at the game going against y’all. It was cold.’ Things like that.

It was crazy because I wasn’t really worried about it, Fournette said. The bumper was on the ground and I was in the car waiting for the police to come and he just came out of nowhere like, ‘Man, can you sign this for me?’ I’m like, ‘You want me to sign a bumper?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah.’

Wilson, who tops the Southeastern Conference in scoring with 23.2 points per game, showed no ill effects in her return from a sprained right ankle. She shot 10 for 12 and also had eight rebounds.

Brady was asked whether he had played in games in more pain than he was currently experiencing.

Bortles, who was understandably emotional after the game, has been a lightning rod of criticism during his four NFL seasons. But 2017 was his best year as a professional. And he saved his best for Foxoborough, going 23 of 36 for 293 yards with a touchdown and no turnovers. In fact, Bortles didn’t have a single turnover in three postseason games.

I think that slots him as the 16th-highest quarterback next year, right around the median, Caldwell told PFT Live at the time. If he was to get the franchise tender, that puts him at the third- or fourth- or fifth-ranked quarterback depending on who gets new deals next year.

Brady, who was listed as a limited participant during Friday’s practice, wouldn’t provide specifics when asked how his hand was feeling, whether he threw any passes or even how the injury occurred during Wednesday’s practice.

I’m not talking about that, Brady said.

Brady wore the gloves at the start of practice Womens Zach Ertz Jersey Friday and said it had been a long time since he wore them in a game. On Thursday, he didn’t participate in any team-based drills after warm-ups.

I’d always rather practice, absolutely, Brady said.

Matt Ryan started off hot against the Steelers. After the Falcons’ defense forced a punt, Ryan was forced to begin his first drive backed up at his own 9-yard line. The poor field position didn’t matter much, as Ryan led the Falcons 91 yards downfield in 10 plays. The scoring drive was punctuated by a Terron Ward touchdown run, but make no mistake about it: The drive was all about Ryan.

Jettisoning McCoy was one of Chip Kelly’s worst moves as an NFL coach, as the former Eagle has proved himself as a reliably elite tailback in each of his three seasons with the Bills. The veteran recorded his sixth 1,000-yard season this season, earning his fifth straight Pro Bowl invite in the process. With a game manager like Taylor behind center, McCoy’s performance is paramount to the team’s success 锟斤拷 and he proved worthy of that responsibility in 2017.

Others disputed that the circumstance would make much of a difference in the line, but that the line would be most dependent on Minnesota’s opponent.

Not even one point, Chris Andrews, longtime oddsmaker at South Point and Vegas Stats and Information Network host, told ESPN of his perception of the increased bump. The [opposing] team will be there for a week, so no travel issues. Tom Brady is going to be intimidated by someone booing him? I just don’t see any advantage.

Jimmy Vaccaro, another oddsmaker at the South Point, agreed, noting that he’d give the Vikings a 3-point bump if they faced the Jacksonville Jaguars, but no advantage if they faced the Patriots.

New England isn’t going to be rattled by anything, Murray added. This is Brady’s eighth Super Bowl, and [the Patriots] were in the Super Bowl last year. It’s not going to make any difference to them.

The NFL has become mostly an offensive show.

The Jaguars not only made it to the postseason for the first time since the 2007 season, they also got a 10-3 Wild Card Game win in a weird and wonderful matchup against the Bills on Sunday.

Jaguars put the nail in the Steelers’ coffin with everyone’s favorite

red_wings_003The Jacksonville Jaguars are putting on an offensive clinic against the Steelers — something nobody really thought they’d be saying coming into Sunday.

Manning has become a Jersey guy, and he’s not a particularly emotional sort, so I doubt he thinks right now it’s definitely over for him in New Jersey. He used to split the year between Jersey and his southern home. Now he’s mostly a suburban Jersey guy, his kids in a great school, his life in total order. He’s invested in the area. I’ve always thought he’d never want to leave. This obviously could change things. But we’re all guessing about the future.

“I don’t care about the Pro Bowl,” he says, referring to Pittsburgh’s disrespectful dearth of defensive representation. (Shazier was voted in, no one else; Heyward was named All-Pro last week, the only Steelers defender on the list.) “I care about Ryan and his health.”

The penalty puts Ramsey one away from an ejection now. It was a bad missed call by the officials, who already helped the Steelers by not ejecting Maurkice Pouncey in the first quarter after he pushed an official.

The Falcons ended up getting a first down anyway after Ryan found Julio Jones down the middle of the field:

It appeared that Sanu could have possibly regained possession after pressing the ball against the back of his fingers, but there was too much movement for the officials to stick with the call on the field.

Even before they lost their house, the Fitzpatricks never had it easy. Minkah Sr. and Melissa met at an ice cream parlor after an eighth-grade dance and had two kids by the time they were 19. (Minkah Jr. and his older sister, Destiny, shared a bedroom in a tiny railroad apartment until they were six and seven. Their otherwise close friendship was occasionally interrupted by table-flipping fights usually brought on by Minkah’s neatness and Destiny’s refusal to make her bed.) “We had to grow up with them,” says Melissa.

“Completely different backgrounds, upbringings, all that,” Thielen summarizes. “But we’ve both been doubted. We both have that chip on our shoulder. I think we have a lot of connections.”

Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick’s reported romance making headlines

I sometimes pretend I don’t know why I have a soft spot for kickers, but it’s pretty obvious: They’re all 5′ 9 former soccer players. They’re the only guys in an NFL locker room I can look at and say, He’s just like me (with the exception of being able to kick a football very far). Thus, I get pangs of sympathy anytime a kicker shanks one. You’re talking job security with every miss. It’s especially true for young kickers; a couple of early mistakes snowball and then, oh crap, your career is over in six games. (Just ask Roberto Aguayo.)

I assumed Jake Elliott was heading down that same, sad path. He was a relatively high draft pick last spring鈥攆ifth round, 153rd overall by the Bengals鈥攁nd yet was a preseason cut in Cincinnati. Philly scooped him up after Caleb Sturgis was injured in the opener, and in his Eagles debut Henry Anderson Authentic Jersey Elliott missed a 30-yarder to end of the first half in what would be the team’s first loss of the season. A week later he missed a 52-yarder in what would turn into a barnburner with the hapless Giants. It was a forgivable miss, but Elliott’s career seemed to be playing out like a Greek tragedy. A short Greek tragedy, with less eye-stabbing and more unsure ball-striking.

According to ESPN, the Seahawks and Packers were interested in Bradley’s services.

After the Chargers rebounded from an 0-4 start, Philip Rivers and running back Melvin Gordon excelled under Whisenhunt. Gordon finished seventh in the league with 1,105 rushing yards while Rivers led the Chargers to be ranked first in the NFL in passing (276.9 yards per game) and fourth in total offense (376.6).

The Giants have not entered an offseason with more issues, in my opinion, since George Young took the GM job in 1979 with the franchise coming off a losing generation and fans burning tickets in the parking lots. Now, 39 years later, Gettleman, who served a four-year apprenticeship as GM of the Panthers, will have to go to some lengths to beat Young’s debut.
