NFL determines Peyton Manning did not use PEDs

After a seven-month investigation, the NFL announced there is “no credible evidence” that retired quarterback Peyton Manning used any type of performance-enhancing substances.

In its official statement on the matter, the league said that both Mannings — Peyton and his wife, Ashley — cooperated fully with the investigation. While they did receive deliveries from an Indiana anti-aging clinic at their home, the Mannings maintained from the beginning that they were sent to, and used by, Ashley Manning. The league said the Mannings “provided interviews and access to all records sought by investigators.”

According to the NFL, the investigation Derick Brassard Jersey was thorough.

Teams could face the loss of draft picks.

The league may assess additional fines Dominic Moore Jersey exceeding the amounts set forth above.

These changes have been in the works since December 2015. The league needed to adjust its approach to handling violations of the concussion protocol in part because of an incident involving Case Keenum last season. Keenum was quite obviously concussed, and he was not immediately removed from the game for appropriate medical attention.

After being consistently under fire for its approach to dealing with the problem of concussions and their lasting effects on players, the NFL has made a concerted effort to at least create the perception of improving the way it handles these injuries.

The NFL recently parted ways with Dr. Elliot Pellman, who was involved with the execution of the medical components of the league’s concussion protocol despite denying the existence of CTE.

That decision, as well as enforcing stricter penalties for teams that jeopardize player safety by not adhering to the protocol, are belated but necessary steps toward rebuilding trust and better protecting players from the lasting effects of head trauma.

“Initiated in January, the investigation was led by the NFL’s security and legal teams with support from expert consultants and other professionals,” the league’s official statement clearing Manning read. “The investigation involved witness interviews, a review of relevant records and other materials, online research, and laboratory analysis and review.”

If the NFL and NFLPA representatives determine that there were “aggravating circumstances” involved in the violation, an additional fine of $50,000 can be assessed.
If it is determined by Goodell that the protocol was violated to maintain competitive advantage, it could result in more severe sanctions.

Arrests made in DeMarcus Ware home robbery, Denver police say

The Denver Police Department said Wednesday it has arrested multiple suspects in connection with the home burglary of DeMarcus Ware on Sunday night and that it has recovered the Denver Broncos linebacker’s property, including his Super Bowl ring.

Denver police took to Twitter — the same place it Devontae Booker Jersey had posted pictures on Monday of the men suspected of the break-in (images from cameras in Ware’s home) — to announce the arrests.

Immediately following Broncos practice on Wednesday, Ware had not yet been notified of the arrests, but he did say that he “had a burglary … everything’s being taken care of.”

Ware said he arrived home at about 10:30 p.m. after Donald Stephenson Jersey the Broncos’ 27-9 victory over the Houston Texans on Monday night and began to notice someone had gone through his belongings and that some items were missing.

First, the basics.

He was asked what’s more difficult — five quarters of football (which the Seahawks played Sunday night against the Arizona Cardinals) or Quidditch.

“Five quarters of football is pretty tough, but Quidditch, the Beaters, the Chasers, trying to hold the Golden Snitch, things like that, that’s tough,” Sherman said. “Five quarters of football, though, in the elements, I’d say that’d take the cake.”

Sherman said he will be taking his son trick-or-treating on Halloween. “He’s going to have a mask on. I’m going to have this on,” Sherman said. “Nobody’s going to have any idea. This is all you’ve got to do. Clark Kent did it. You’ve just got to put the glasses on. Bam. No longer Richard Sherman. What’s up? Can’t even tell anymore, right?”

One was the diamond-encrusted ring each Broncos player received for winning Super Bowl 50. Each ring does have the recipient’s name on it.

“[It’s] the first time something like that has happened,” Ware said. “… I feel like when people going through your things, it’s like vandalizing your stuff. Not about material things, it’s about you going through my stuff, you’ve been in my house … it doesn’t feel like home anymore.

The reason for the dropoff can be found in Gurley’s yards before initial contact per carry. The Rams’ workhorse is last among 37 backs (minimum 45 rushes) with only 1.34 yards before initial contact per rush, well below the 2.46 average for qualified backs. For added context, Gurley averaged 2.70 yards before initial contact last season.

Jeremy Mincey retires after 9 seasons in the NFL

Defensive end Jeremy Mincey is hanging up after nine seasons in the NFL. The 32-year-old announced his retirement on with a lengthy post on Instagram, where he thanked his fans, former teams and coaches.

“I want to thank the Patriots organization for getting my foot in the Door. The 49rs [sic] for giving me a shot. The Jaguars for grooming me. The Broncos for the Super Bowl experience and the Dallas Cowboys for exploiting my Talents on and off the field.”

“I want to thank the Patriots organization for getting my foot in the Door. The 49rs [sic] for giving me a shot. The Jaguars for grooming Darren Woodson Jersey me. The Broncos for the Super Bowl experience and the Dallas Cowboys for exploiting my Talents on and off the field.”

PITY THE NINERS: 49ers sign Christian Ponder to a one-year deal. Not content with one bust QB from the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the 49ers added Daryl Johnston Jersey a second.

SIEMIAN HAS A SHOT: Trevor Siemian could really be the Broncos starting quarterback. Trevor Siemian is making a serious run at Mark Sanchez in the race to replace Peyton Manning.

ANOTHER BLOW FOR THE BILLS DEFENSE: Bills DT Marcell Dareus suspended four games by NFL. It’s bad news for a Bills defense that has already been hit hard by injuries. Meanwhile, Manny Lawson is facing one-game suspension, too. The 32-year-old linebacker has been accused of domestic violence.

GRONK IS BRUISED: Rob Gronkowski is dealing with a bruise. The All-World tight end left Monday’s practice and was not on the field yesterday because of the injury.

OLYMPIC MOMENT: Robert Quinn is in Rio to watch his sister run the hurdles in the Olympics. Pretty cool moment for the Rams defensive end.

ARIANS HOSPITALIZED: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians taken to hospital in San Diego. He was feeling ill and having stomach pains. The feeling is that it’s nothing major and he’ll be back to work and dropping F bombs soon enough.

Odell Beckham Jr. is ready for cheap shots from the Rams

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher says his players won’t be baiting OBJ. We’ll believe it when we see it.

The Rams say they won’t bait Odell Beckham Jr. Coach Jeff Fisher said the Rams players “have been instructed not to hurt the football team.” I don’t believe it. That’s the kind of 7-9 bullshit the Rams are synonymous with under Fisher and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

As for the Giants, Beckham Shea McClellin Jersey says he’s ready for the late hits given out by the Rams defensive backs. “You do expect it,” Beckham said. “I always say stay ready so you don’t have to get ready.”

There’s a history between the Rams Sherrick McManis Jersey and Beckham. A late hit by the Rams on Beckham started a brawl on the sidelines between the two teams back in 2014.

The Giants-Rams game starts at 9:30 a.m. ET, and you can catch it on the NFL Network or a few places online.

While the other Giants receivers were running routes with quarterback Eli Manning prior to the game, Beckham was working with the training staff. He didn’t look comfortable according to Adam Schefter, and spent more time talking to the head coach and general manager.

The question now is just how much Beckham will play and how effective he’ll be against the Rams.

Beckham will also have to contend with a Rams defense known for taking some cheap shots and trying to bait players like Beckham. He’s said that he’s prepared for whatever they bring, and Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has said that they won’t bait him. But we’ll see.

He’s coming off a career game last week where he scored twice and racked up 222 receiving yards against the Ravens. His 581 receiving yards this season rank fifth in the NFL.

Giants sign Robbie Gould to replace Josh Brown. Brown didn’t travel with the team to London, but the newly signed Gould did. Meanwhile, the Giants still haven’t cut Brown.

The dink and dunk passing game got the Packers offense moving again. Rodgers averaged just over 5.8 yards per attempt on Thursday night against the Bears — 326 yards on 56 attempts — which is a long way from what we’re used to seeing from Rodgers. His career average of 7.9 yards per attempt. But it was EXACTLY what the Packers offense needed to get going.

Davante Adams might be the answer to Aaron Rodgers’ struggles. Adams helped solve Rodgers’ offensive troubles, at least for one night.

We have equality everything, why not religion too?

A TINY bit. Next, he won’t be the only one jabbing a finger toward the heavens after a successful slant route. It’s a fact that as the get bigger, do the onfield gestures. Nobody raises their hands to the sky August ’cause not even God gives a shit about the preseason; that’s when He vacations with J. Blige. Regardless of who gets a confetti shower and embroidered shirt after the Super Bowl, is still going to be thanking the Lord for lead blocking. And for liking him more than Jon Kitna.. —— Cameron Frye:, or the notorious G.O.D. could probably care less about. you’re not the Super Bowl because of – you’re there because the West sucks and they needed a team to represent your Duke Johnson Jersey division. If a group of retarded helmet kids had a better record than the Cardinals, they’d be there. But you do have Leinert there – you’re not that far off. had as much to with your success as he did when Mystikal wrote ‘Shake Ya Ass’. Actually, that’s not true. We all know J.C. was a big ass. Growing up Catholic, I’ve had suspicions on whether or not there was a God.

I mean, if there was a God, would Dwayne Bowe Jersey have played the entire instead of gallivanting around with and a bum knee and talking to Canadian radio shows about his homemade aspercream. If there was a God I wouldn’t have gone to prom stag and woke up naked & hung over from a night of binge drinking Parrot Bay some seedy motel room next to someone ‘s date. And most importantly, do you honestly think would let a team with a 9 record participate the Super Bowl? If you want me to be convinced there is a higher power, let Leinert play next ; then I’ll believe there’s a God and know he has a sense of humor too. —— : Church and State, God and Country, Piety and Pigskin? Why not? The Lord’s Prayer was read on the White House steps during the inauguration of our new President. Statesman invoked blessings from the heavens for our country and president. And if anyone can use a few blessings, it’s Barack Obama. Think of it this way, wasn’t our little country founded by a bunch of scared, hungry immigrants who fled their own lands because of religious oppression? Doesn’t every one of our nation’s most sacred documents and most famous speeches contain some sort of spiritual recognition of bequest? why wouldn’t we it the greatest American past time; sports. We’re religious peoples. Okay, a MANY religion religious peoples. I ‘t necessarily mind seeing a player spike a touch down and drop to his knees and throw his hands to the heavens as long as it only lasts a brief moment. But seriously, wouldn’t it be freakin’ amazing if there was a little equality?

We have equality everything, why not religion too? How about someone doing a post-game presser and thanking Satan for amazing tackle that splays a player out unconscious? Wouldn’t that be awesome? Thank you oh Dark Lord for laying waste of opponent. Or how about thanking Mercury for the speed to run a race past 3 non-believing runners. I’d like to thank Thor for the power of the Gods that I might press that 800 lbs and not crush spinal column. What happened to those religions? They were fun. No, we’re down to just a few popular deities. Put your hand your pocket and pull out a dollar. Does it not say In God We Trust? Maybe it should say In God We Believe? We’re told to be thankful for the little things that come our way each day. Sometimes those little things are the things we have worked our lives to achieve: a home run, a touch down, a game winning goal. When we have something other than ourselves, we remember to thank something higher. It’s not a bad thing.

I think he communicates great with players

PEORIA, Ariz. — When Chip Hale took over as manager of the D-backs last, he knew the first thing he had to change was what was then a culture. It’s the same for Green, a Hale acolyte and Arizona’s third-base coach last, who’s now taking that same approach his first year managing the Padres. The Padres have had Colin Wilson Jersey one winning since 2007 and haven’t been to the postseason since 2006. Green is their third manager less than a year. Chip has been a profound influence life; I’ve never been shy about saying that, said Green, just as the Padres took the field for their fifth workout under the new manager at the Peoria Sports Complex on. He was first manager professional baseball, he was a coach of mine the big leagues, he managed me Triple-A, and he hired me on a League staff for the first time. His work ethic is unmatched. He gets after it every single day. Those things I’ll take from him, and there is a large dose of other things I’ll take from other people. • Training: | | Hale was a third-base coach the Majors under with the D-backs and had the same position with the Mets under Collins. Before managing Arizona, he spent three years as ‘s bench Craig Smith Jersey coach Oakland. Add six seasons of managing the Minor Leagues and Hale was ready to hit the managing. He quickly earned the respect of the players and turned around a team that lost 98 2014 under Kirk Gibson by 15 wins. Likewise, Green comes to San Diego with a similar goal if not the same level of experience. At 38, he managed four years the D-backs’ system and only has had that single big league under Hale as a coach. Green could be a good one. ‘s going to be a great manager, Hale said after the D-backs finished their workout at nearby Salt River Fields. I had him when he came out of Kentucky, and right away you could see he was interested all aspects of the game. He was a leader on the field, like having another coach. And last year, he did a wonderful job for us.

I think he communicates great with players. He knows the game as well as anybody. With all that mind, Green was hired by the Padres on Oct. 29 after exhaustive search, and he is following behind a pair of well-liked managers Black and Pat Murphy. The Padres underperformed last, 88 and finishing 18 behind the Dodgers the National League West. They were 32 and six behind the Dodgers before the of 15 when management decided to pull the plug on Black after eight-plus seasons. The spiraled downward after that. Green came knowing he had some work to do and fences to mend. He spent a lot of time the offseason talking to of the players. In the early going, they like what they’re hearing. ‘s been great, said Tyson, the right-hander Green quickly made ally by naming him the Opening Day starter. He’s super organized and very intelligent. He’s working hard out here and he’s really challenging us. We’ve always had great people here San Diego and it’s always been a good vibe the clubhouse. The fact of the matter is we weren’t a winning ballclub. We have to overhaul the culture if we want any success here for the term. Green is a University of Kentucky graduate finance and, like Black, is one of the rare big league managers with a college degree.

His D-backs pedigree runs this deep: At Kentucky, Green was a teammate of Webb, one the top pitchers club history, and the D-backs selected Green with their 24th-round pick the 2004 Draft. Green played for Hale Rookie ball and then again as he bounced back and forth between the big leagues and Triple-A Tucson from 2004. Ultimately, Green played only 140 Leagues for the D-backs and Mets — 136 of them for Arizona — batting.200. He had 46 League hits. Similarly, Hale was a middle infielder who played 333 for the Twins and Dodgers, batting.277 with 159 hits. Green began climbing his way up the D-backs’ organizational ladder after retiring 2009 as a player, managing two seasons of Rookie-level ball and two more at Double-A before Hale became the club’s manager for the 2015 and brought Green back to the Majors as his third-base coach. Like Hale last year, Green has hit the running hard, trying to make the most of this opportunity. When asked specifically what it meant to change the Padres’ culture, Green said: What I learned this offseason when I spent a lot of time with these guys is that inside of them there’s a lot of really good ideas. You ‘t change culture by yourself or with one great speech on Feb. 24. Ultimately they forget that speech, but I told them to draw out the good things inside of them, to force them to take a measurement of leadership and ownership of this team. You change the culture when those guys who are out there stretching want to own the team, to be a part of something different, something that’s bigger than themselves.

Dreger also reported that prior to Weber’s signing, the Red Wings, San Jose, the New Rangers and Philadelphia were involved trade talks with the Predators for the 6-foot-4-pound defenseman. Nashville has seven days to match the offer. If it declines it receive four first-round picks as compensation, if the average annual salary is $8,976 or higher. If it is between $6,781 and $8,976, the Predators would receive two first-round picks, a second and a third. .Weber, a two-time Trophy finalist as the NHL’s top defenseman, was a restricted free agent after his one-year, $7 million deal, awarded through arbitration, expired after the . Weber, 26, had 19 goals and 49 points last . If the Predators match the offer sheet, which surely is heavily front-loaded, they wouldn’t be able to trade Weber for one year, as per the current collective bargaining agreement.

The Red Wings, under general manager Holland, have never tendered offer sheet to a restricted free agent. Holland has said he believes it’s pointless, since the player’s team almost always matches. Detroit desperately needs a top pair defenseman after Nicklas Lidstrom retired. The Red Wings made a big push for Weber’s former teammate, Suter, offering him a 13-year deal worth $88 million, but he signed instead with the Minnesota Wild for $98 million over 13 years. There are no more high-end defensemen on the free-agent market, forcing the Red Wings to fill that void through a trade. The Red Wings also are seeking a top-six winger. They offered New Jersey’s Zach Parise a 13-year deal worth $73 million, but weren’t even the ball park. He joined Suter Minnesota for the same amount .
