The Seahawks were hosting the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football

Smith’s Rams tenure lasted longer than one year, but effectively, he was finished with the franchise that drafted him before his rookie season ended. A concussion ended Smith’s first year early, and he was replaced in the Rams’ lineup by Year 2. He was traded to the Jets in 2012.

Curry, then believed to be a can’t-miss linebacker prospect out of Wake Forest, started his entire rookie year and a couple games into Year 2 before he was replaced in Seattle’s lineup. He was traded to the Raiders a little more than two years after he was drafted.

The Seahawks were hosting the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football, and Beast Mode showed up to check out his old teammates.

Prior to the game, he was also seen out with a full plate of chicken wings. He showed up around the same time that Thomas Rawls was hurt and the run game was suffering.

March 17, 2017 – A report surfaces that the Raiders want to acquire Lynch
ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Josina Anderson report that the Raiders are interested in signing Lynch, a day after Latavius Murray lands with the Vikings.

Raiders strongly considering acquiring RB Marshawn Lynch, either through Cheap Jerseys NFL Nike trade or by his release, sources tell @JosinaAnderson and me.

Thomas is an obvious standout, but a look at the rest of the Cheap Ireland Soccer Jerseys team’s selections show just what an outlier he’s been. Three were quarterbacks — Brady Quinn, Brandon Weeden, and Manziel — with a combined record of 12-41 as starters.

Only Weeden is still in the league, though to the Browns’ credit, only two quarterbacks from the 2007 draft class played beyond the 2012 season. That logic doesn’t hold up as well for 2014: Teddy Bridgewater, Derek Carr, Jimmy Garoppolo, AJ McCarron, and Tom Savage highlight the list of passers selected after Manziel that spring.

If the Blue Jays are going to turn it around, they have to start right now

Listen, we know it’s tough to catch up on everything happening in the baseball world each morning. There are all kinds of stories, rumors, game coverage, and Vines of dudes getting hit in the beans every day. Trying to find all of it while on your way to work or sitting at your desk just isn’t easy. It’s OK, though. We’re going to do the heavy lifting for you each morning and find the things you need to see from within the SB Nation baseball network, as well as from elsewhere. Please hold your applause until the end, or at least until after you subscribe to the newsletter.

The Blue Jays are 1-8 and already 5.5 games back in the AL East despite not even playing their 10th game of the season yet. For almost everything good, bad, and in between in baseball, you can say, “well, it’s just April,” but there are exceptions to that, and the Jays are right up against one of those exceptions. Three teams have begun their seasons 1-7 and still ended up making it to the postseason: the 1974 Pirates, the 1995 Reds, and the 2011 Rays.

Last year, the world saw several players fall down the draft board in the first round, most notably Laremy Tunsil, Paxton Lynch, Robert Nkemdiche and Laquon Treadwell. Other predicted first-rounders like Myles Jack, A’Shawn Robinson, Jarran Reed and Reggie Ragland fell out of the first round entirely.

While players who aren’t graded as highly by mock drafters (think Taylor Decker, Keanu Neal, and Artie Burns from last year’s class) come off the board, I expect one of these three Wholesale Jerseys From China players — more likely Thomas or Allen — to drop past the 10th overall pick.

Gonzalez made a bajillion field goals during his time at Arizona State. Or 96. Either way it was a record-breaking amount, and he kept on going by tying the record for field goals at the Senior Bowl.

During the broadcast, NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah reported Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys that a scout of more than 20 years said Gonzalez has the highest grade of any kicker he’s ever scouted — yes, even higher than Roberto Aguayo, who was a second-round pick last year.

Jarvis Landry boldly predicts Dolphins will sweep Patriots this season

Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry, speaking at an NFL UK event in London on Monday, predicted his team would sweep its two games against the Patriots this season.

Miami hasn’t accomplished that feat since the 2000 season.

In a conversation the next day with MMQB, Landry suggested it was time for the Dolphins to dethrone New England as the long-time champs of the AFC East.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has led the Patriots to division titles in 13 of the last 14 years, the outlier being 2008, when they lost Tom Brady to a season-ending injury in Week 1. The Pats have won the AFC East a record eight straight seasons.

We saw a similar special touchdown a few years ago with Nebraska’s spring game. A young fan with cancer, Jack Hoffman, scored a 69-yard touchdown in 2013. The Buckeyes players did a good job of selling Jarvis’ touchdown, by “attempting” to make tackles on him.

Jarvis was even seen recruiting for Ohio State outside of the stadium before the spring game kicked off.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has called Jarvis a “legit member of the NFL Jerseys China team” since 2013. After the Buckeyes’ national championship in January 2015, Jarvis got to go on the Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys field to hoist the CFP National Championship trophy.

Kudos to the whole Ohio State team for putting together this special moment for Jarvis, which he’ll surely never forget.

The AL West is already a mess

There are all kinds of stories, rumors, game coverage, and Vines of dudes getting hit in the beans every day.

Two summers ago after Jordan Spieth’s grand slam chances ended at St. Andrews, the one word I kept using to describe his incredible push to actually win the third leg of a slam was relentless. It may have been a moment of recency hyperbole, but after we buried him multiple times at that Open, I called his desperate push to actually win the damn thing the most impressive moment of his year (you know, the one that included two majors already):

The Grand Slam is something that seems as close to impossible as anything in this game. The crushing pressure and simple odds of it, and then those two mess-ups on back-to-back days, should have eliminated Spieth before the 72nd green. The responses were Tiger-like. He was relentless. I’ll Wholesale NFL Jerseys remember this week for that and given the circumstances, it was as impressive as anything he’s done this year.

That relentlessness was back at Augusta National on Friday and it’s probably a trait that Spieth possesses more than anyone in the game. This Masters has been more difficult than his previous starts, where it became a daily tradition to have Spieth on top of the leaderboard each night. Instead of a quadruple bogey late on Sunday, Spieth went ahead and got that out of the way early in the tournament on Thursday, posting an incomprehensible 9 at the par-5 15th.

A thrilling third round set the stage for Sunday.

The 54-hole lead at the Masters belongs to Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia. The Englishman and the Spaniard mounted Saturday charges and passed up Charley Hoffman for the lead down the stretch. Rose has one major championship to his name, a U.S. Open, while Garcia is still striving for his first one.

What isn’t different is that Sergio remains the transcendent talent he’s always been, even at 37. For the better part of 20 years, he’s been one of the game’s best ballstrikers — and he’s still that today. Such might explain part of his success this week. Windy conditions put a premium on striking it solidly. He was absurdly solid through those conditions that rattled so many — one single bogey through the opening 27 holes of the tournament.

Don’t get confused: Sergio Garcia deserves a major championship. If titles were equitable to his contributions to the game, he’d have multiple already. Even though the rivalry that seemed destined from Medinah in ‘99 on with Tiger Woods didn’t materialize, he’s had thousands, millions of fans who have stuck by the mercurial, snakebitten star since he burst onto the scene there so many years ago.

“I got a nice read off of Phil’s putt here,” Spieth told CBS’s Dottie Pepper after his round. “Certainly saved one there; I wasn’t necessarily expecting that.”

There was the tap-in birdie at 8, the stuffed approach shot NBA Jerseys Wholesale and Cheap Jerseys 90 another tap-in for birdie at No. 9, and a “nice little pitch” on 10 after missing long and left.

Spieth followed another long, left tee shot on the par-3 12th (after the obligatory CBS video of last year’s disaster) with a “really difficult up and down” that resulted in “a nice par save.”

It’s a quirky tradition with a nice origin story.

On Monday night, either North Carolina or Gonzaga will win the national championship. A short time later, a senior on the winning team will get a small keepsake from Jim Nantz, the CBS play-by-play man who calls the title game each year: his necktie.

Last year’s recipient was Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono, who made Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys the play to set up Kris Jenkins’s buzzer-beating triple against North Carolina. Confirmed past honorees include Florida’s Corey Brewer (2006, though he wasn’t a senior) and Duke’s Quinn Cook (2015).

Here’s Nantz explaining, after last year’s game, why he bequeaths his tie to a senior on every national championship team (Arcidiacono, in that case):

Most golfers with a large cushion will play a conservative game in order to secure victory. Tiger either didn’t do that or he was just so good at the time, he didn’t need to. Either way, his back nine on Sunday put an exclamation point on his historic win. He made birdies on 11, 13, and 14. The gas pedal was down and it wouldn’t let up until Nick Faldo slipped that green jacket over his shoulders.

In the past few years, it has become fashionable to criticize Tiger for bulking up too much. Sure he’s ripped now, but that’s not the point. Back in 1997, Tiger looked like he was 155 pounds. He still blasted it some 23 yards, on average, farther than the second longest hitter in the field. His power was Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys derived from unbelievable club head speed and it wasn’t because he was working out like a madman.

Miami Dolphins had other incidents of harassment, according to report

Offensive tackle Jonathan Martin left the Dolphins at the end of October amid reports he was seeking help for emotional issues stemming from bullying inside the organization. Teammate Richie Incognito was suspended by the team for sending racist and threatening text messages to Martin, prompting the organization to seek a full probe into its workplace environment.

Iupati, 26, left the game in the third quarter on Sunday after running back Frank Gore ran into the back of his left knee. He was replaced in the lineup by Adam Snyder, who is likely to fill Iupati’s starting role in a Monday Night Football matchup against the Washington Redskins.

With Iupati expected to miss some time, David Fucillo of SB Nation’s 49ers blog, Niners Nation, listed two other players that could see increased play time:

Daniel Kilgore can also play inside, but Snyder came on at left guard when Iupati went down. We’ll get a better idea of this when the 49ers return to practice later in the week.

The 49ers also have Joe Looney on the roster, although he has been active all season. If Iupati is inactive this week, I would hope Looney would get activated. We’ll see.
A first-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, Iupati has been a solid starter for the 49ers in all four seasons at left guard, although he is having the most inconsistent NFL Jerseys 2014 season of his career Cheap Chelsea Jerseys in 2017, according to Pro Football Focus. Snyder, a third round selection in the 2005 NFL Draft, has made 83 career starts, including 14 with the Arizona Cardinals in 2017.

Titans QB facing 5-6 month recovery

Jake Locker could be facing an extensive recovery time, 5-6 months, after undergoing surgery to repair his Lisfranc injury, the Nashville Tennessean reports. Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said that surgery went well with “no surprises,” but that an exact timetable for Locker’s return is still unknown.

“He heals a little different than other people, but we assume he’ll be able to do something this spring,” Munchak said. “I’m sure it’s something that will be adjusted as he goes through the rehab process. We know he’ll be ready for training camp and OTAs and it is just a matter of exactly how the whole thing will work.”

Meanwhile, Josh Freeman remains on the bench. Freeman was signed by the Vikings on a one-year, $2.83 million contact after he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before Week 4. He made one start — an ugly outing against the New York Giants on Oct. 21, just two weeks after becoming a Viking — and hasn’t been seen since.

Ponder’s best performance of the season came in Week 10, when he went shook off an interception on his second pass of the game against the Washington Redskins to go 17-for-21 for 174 yards and two touchdowns before leaving late with a dislocated shoulder. He was able to bounce back quickly from the injury, but then started the matchup against the Seahawks 13-for-22 for 129 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions before being yanked.

Cassel went just 5-for-13 for 78 yards, one touchdown Fashion Online Shop Cheap Jerseys and one interception in Ponder’s stead, however, so it’s not surprising that Frazier has opted to start Ponder. The Vikings are doing their best to play their current hand, but it’s clear they Cheap Vikings Jerseys China don’t have a strong card to throw.

Paul Posluszny has been ruled out after suffering a concussion last week.

Jacksonville Jaguars middle linebacker Paul Posluszny has been ruled “out” for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. Posluszny was unable to get cleared after suffering a concussion last week.

Welker has been very valuable to the Broncos offense this season, catching 61 passes for 648 yards and nine touchdowns. Without him, the Denver attack will rely more on wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, along with tight end Julius Thomas and running back Knowshon Moreno.

If Welker can’t go, it would certainly take out one of the main storylines heading into next Sunday night’s tilt. Welker played six seasons with the Patriots and had over 100 catches in five of them. The former New England star played in two Super Bowls during his tenure there before leaving for Denver and a two-year, $12 million contract this offseason.

Last year the NFL moved touchbacks from the 20-yard line to the 25-yard line. The intention was to reduce the number of returns, long a player-safety issue, by encouraging the receiving team to take the extra 5 yards. It had the opposite effect, causing more teams to try and kick short of the goal line, betting that they Cheap Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys
could stop the returners short of the 25-yard line.

They’ll vote this week to make that change permanent.

Another proposal that could make kickoffs required viewing rather than the usual bathroom and/or guacamole break is a change allowing for touchbacks at the 20-yard line, instead of the 25, if a kicker boots the ball through the upright.

That one probably won’t pass because it could be seen as Cheap Pirates Jerseys an extra advantage for teams playing indoors or in other favorable environments for kickers, ahem, Denver. Too bad, because it would be an extra wrinkle of fun, making big-leg kickers that much more a crucial part of the game.

Leslie Frazier cares about Leslie Frazier’s employment status after December 29.

Alex Mann at Revenge of the Birds breaks down the first-half grades for each position group. No surprises on where their strengths lie:

Linebackers: A- Key losses especially on the outside to Acho and Alexander early on, the unit has held up well. Zero production from second-round pick Kevin Minter is disappointing, but the revival of Karlos Dansby playing at an All-Pro level, and Daryl Washington being the stud he is, have created a formidable duo.

But, as Ted touched on in his Stock Market Report, who’s the Andrew Luck-esque “lock” out of those guys to be the next big thing?

Despite these efforts, the taunting continued. Beyond the well-publicized voice mail with its racial epithet, Jonathan endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments such as the quote at the bottom. These facts are not in dispute.

There is no further elaboration on the nature of the physical attack claimed by Martin’s camp, and the Miami Dolphins organization has not released a statement in response to the latest claims. The NFL is currently investigating the team at the request of the front office to ensure there was no further impropriety.

The two wild card teams are Carolina and San Francisco. The chase for both spots remains wide open, though, with two teams within one game and two others just 1.5 games back. As has been the case in recent years, the wild cards in the NFC likely won’t be determined until the final week of the season.

Leslie Frazier cares about Leslie Frazier’s employment status after December 29. If the Vikings do fire him, do you suppose he wants to go into interviews and have guys say Texans Cheap Jerseys to him, “Hey, you were that guy that spent last year trying to lose football games, right? How’d that work out for you?” Yeah, I’m Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys pretty sure that he would not. So, Leslie Frazier and company not going to coach to lose.
