Elite Austin Howard Jersey The Seattle Seahawks know how much running back Marshawn Lynch means to their offense. It’s no surprise then that head coach Pete Carroll says the team has begun extension talks with the All-Pro “in earnest,” according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.
Carroll has been speaking with the media as part of the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine. He told reporters that the Seahawks have “big offers out there” for Lynch, and that they expect him to remain in Seattle for the foreseeable future.
Gasol took advantage of Cousins and Kawhi Leonard sitting after halftime, starting and finishing the second half at center and playing the most minutes (21) of any West reserve. Gasol was two assists away from joining Durant with a triple-double, including setting up several highlight dunks, and he hit a Dirk Nowitzki-esque fadeaway when Kerr called his number after a late timeout.
Elite Brett Favre Jersey Of all the All-Stars, Green probably saw the least change in his typical role. As usual, Green focused less on scoring — attempting just two shots in 17 minutes — and more on setting up his teammates, defending and rebounding. His pass led to Curry’s dunk, and a pair of Westbrook dunks were also among Green’s six assists.
Melvin Gordon: The value of running backs is all over the place in the NFL today, but if any back is considered likely to go in the first round, it’s Wisconsin’s Gordon. He put up 2,587 yards in 2014, the second most in FBS history. He’s a solid all-round back who needs a decent showing everywhere to keep his name at the top of the list.
T.J. Yeldon: The Alabama back is 6-foot-2 and 221 pounds … he’s quick for his size, but nobody is quite sure what his top-line speed will be. The 40-yard dash will be the most important thing for him, and it could decide whether he’s one of the top three backs taken in the draft or if he falls out of the top five.
