Tom Brady has been throwing at Gillette Stadium, report says

Tom Brady may be skipping organized team activities, but he is still hanging around Gillette Stadium.

The Patriots quarterback has been throwing passes to wide receiver Julian Edelman in the practice bubble at Foxborough on a semi-regular basis, according to Michael Giardi of NBC Sports.

Yeah, I think at some point, whether you’re a rookie, whether you’re an 11-year guy, there’s always time to learn, there’s always time to share advice and wisdom that’s gained through experience, Stewart said last week. There’s younger guys that might experience things different than I have, so there’s always room for me to learn, too.

Barkley, the prize rookie, and Gallman, the second-year back, might be able to school Stewart as to what the young guys are listening to nowadays and perhaps provide a few social media/technology tips. Stewart has a decade of NFL insight to share and the Giants are banking on that experience overshadowing the wear-and-tear associated with carrying the ball and taking hits during 10 years with the Panthers.

Davis will soon be taking his own team to Las Vegas, and he has to be inspired by the support that the hockey team enjoys, with a standing-room-only crowd in the arena and thousands more outside. If the folks in Vegas will do that for a brand-new hockey team, they’ll likely do the same for one of the most iconic brands in football.

For a city that was excluded from big-time sports for decades due to gambling, the emergence of the Golden Knights combined with the looming arrival of the Raiders and the likely installation of Vegas as a key component of the Super Bowl rotation will make Vegas a major player in the American sports landscape, surely inviting speculation that an MLB and/or NBA team eventually could end up there.

After all, when the games begin, the needless, illegal and game-changing brutality perpetrated against fellow social protesters, topped with public demonstrations of excessive self-regard and taunting — not to mention off-field hassles and crimes to which cops are summoned — weekly show players throwing water on their own fires and convictions.

To that end, continued protests would be counter-productive to players’ earnings as well as the good and welfare of the business that enriches them.

Beyond that, the point has been made. Exploitation of the national anthem — a form of showboating — has grown tired, a faded, feckless fad. Consider that Colin Kaepernick, national symbol for change, was not even registered to vote.

Burks should find a starting position right away for Mike Pettine in the Demario Davis mold. Moore (big red-zone target) Valdez-Scantling (home-run hitter) and St. Brown (a little bit of both) give them intriguing post-Jordy Nelson options behind Davante Adams at receiver. Scott and Bradley give them a sneaky upgrade on special teams, too. Edge defensive options were a typical way to end a great first draft for Brian Gutekunst.

Here’s to you again, Jon Robinson, one of the brightest young GMs in the game. Evans and Landry can be second-level studs for linebacker-turned-head coach Mike Vrabel, and Dean Pess gets some Ravens-like linebackers. Cruikshank can push for the starting strong safety spot soon. Falk is the ideal athletic developmental backup for Marcus Mariota under Matt LaFleur.

Draft picks: RB Saquon Barkley (Penn State), G Brian Dumoulin Jersey Will Hernandez (UTEP), OLB Lorenzo Carter (Georgia), DT B.J. Hill (NC State), QB Kyle Lauletta (Richmond), DT R.J. McIntosh (Miami)

What a monster first draft in New York for Dave Gettleman. He transformed the Giants’ running game with the banging Barkley-Hernandez combination. He also got good value when landing the types of front-seven players who fit their new 3-4 base defense under James Bettcher, led by Carter’s pass-rush upside. The Giants didn’t forget about QB, either, with Lauletta set to compete with Davis Webb for the right to succeed Eli Manning.

According to Joseph A. Gambardello of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Andrew Tornetta filed the suit Wednesday in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.

The suit claims that the alleged false arrest and beating he received afterward caused him physical pain, discomfort, trauma, humiliation, embarrassment, emotional distress, sleeplessness, anxiety, inability to perform simple activities of daily living, depression characterized by feelings of despair, hopelessness, and despondency.

The Eagles are named as defendants for supposedly failing to supervise the police acting on their behalf. The claim seeks damages in excess of $50,000.

Monmouth Park had planned to begin accepting sports bets on May 28 — Memorial Day. Dennis Drazin, the park’s operator, said state law allows sports betting at casinos and tracks without state regulation made that possible.

But the regulatory聽bill sponsored by Sweeney is stopping the park. 聽The measure says anyone who opens a sportsbook before the law聽is enacted will be barred from obtaining a license from the state to accept future sports bets.

Former state Sen. Raymond Lesniak, the lawmaker who led the legal fight for sports betting for years, said he was hugely disappointed聽by that provision.

Game Kids Morris Claiborne Jersey It’s hard to fathom, Lesniak, D-Union, told NJ Advance Media on Thursday. It would have been a great day for New Jersey, with national media attention. There would have been 30,000 fans at Monmouth Park that day. We’re missing a huge opportunity to promote New Jersey nationwide.

Solder’s addition in free agency creates a ripple effect鈥攏amely, Flowers is moving from left to right tackle. And the 24-year-old Flowers, whom the Giants聽attempted to trade, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, has been a pleasant surprise.聽

Doing great, Shurmur told Francesa. He’s been here a couple of weeks now, and he’s doing an outstanding job. He looks pretty good to me. Again, fresh eyes, but he looks pretty good to me at right tackle.

Second-round pick Will Hernandez is expected to claim left guard, while veterans John Greco, Patrick Omameh and Jon Halapio are competing for the opposite spot. Greco received initial first-team reps, though, according to The Athletic’s Patricia Traina.

Sweeney said he respects Lesniak and understands his position.

Drazin said he has no problem waiting.

Mason Rudolph on Ben Roethlisberger Jersey comments: ‘I’d probably say the same thing’

Mason Cole Womens Jersey Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t think the Steelers should have used a third-round pick on a quarterback in last month’s draft, and Mason Rudolph agrees.
Men's Game Curtis Samuel Black Jersey: Home #10 NFL Carolina Panthers Nike
I was surprised when they took a quarterback because I thought that maybe in the third round, you know you can get some really good football players that can help this team now, Roethlisberger said Friday. Nothing against Mason; I think he’s a great football player. I don’t know him personally, but I’m sure he’s a great kid. I just don’t know how backing up or being a third [string] 鈥?well, who knows where he’s going to fall on the depth chart 鈥?helps us win now.

But, you know, that’s not my decision to make. That’s on the coaches and the GM and the owner and those kind of things. If they think he can help our team, so be it, but I was a little surprised.

He’ll be joined by former teammate and Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington, who was selected in the second round after the team traded Jonathan Huberdeau Youth jersey Martavis Bryant to the Raiders.

I think he’s got a little bit of a chip on his shoulder to prove some people and naysayers wrong, Ballard told co-host Bill Polian and me earlier this week on SiriusXM NFL Radio. That’s a beautiful thing with a quarterback that I think is top five in this league.

The Colts have taken multiple steps this offseason to help Luck reach those heights upon his imminent return. The first is an infusion of both depth and talent for their offensive line, which has experienced struggles in pass protection for years.

Two of the Colts’ first three picks in last week’s draft 鈥?Notre Dame’s Quenton Nelson (first round) and Auburn’s Braden Smith (second) 鈥?were guards. They will be inserted on the left and right side of the line, respectively, between left tackle Anthony Castanzo, center Ryan Kelly and the winner of the Denzelle Good/Joe Haeg battle at right tackle.

Because of the position’s nature compared to others that can make more of a splash, some NFL coaches and general managers believe guards shouldn’t be selected in the top 10 like Nelson was at No. 6. Asked to respond, Ballard laughed and said, That means they must have them.

Saints schedule 2018: New Orleans faces little Big Easy in NFC title push

The Saints were the strongest team in the mighty NFC South last season. For New Orleans to build on that playoff run, it will need to navigate through one of the NFL’s strongest schedules in 2018.

The combined 2017 record of New Orleans’ opponents, thanks in part to having two other playoff teams in its division, is 137-119. That’s tied with Detroit for the second toughest in the league.

Bottom line: Brees was re-signed and got some help in the passing game, and the defense got better in the back seven. Those moves came before the draft, from which both sides of the ball will be boosted even more. Despite the degree of difficulty in their schecardinals_011dule, the Saints are on par talent-wise with the heavyweights they will be playing. Brees and coach Sean Payton are back in business as threats to lead New Orleans to its first NFC title in nine years. Record prediction: 12-4

2. At least eight of the 11 players on the receiving team must line up within 15 yards of their restraining line, which would typically mean between the kicking team’s 45-yard line and the receiving team’s 40-yard line.

3. At least two players on the kickoff team must be lined up outside the numbers, and two players between the numbers and the hashmark.

4. Until the ball is touched or hits the ground, players on the receiving team can’t cross the restraining line (typically the 45), or initiate a block within 15 yards of the line where the ball is kicked.

5. Wedge blocks will be eliminated. Past rule changes have limited wedge blocks to two players, but now even the two-man wedge will be banned.

Brendan Shanahan defends Kyle Dubas Jersey after Mark Hunter, Lou Lamoriello leave Maple Leafs

Elite Kids Curley Culp Jersey
Toronto Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan knew the dominoes could start falling when he named 31-year-old Kyle Dubas as his new general manager last month.
Youth Los Angeles Kings #23 Dustin Brown Adidas Green Authentic Salute To Service NHL Jersey
ESPN: There’s also a perception that had you kept Lou in place, none of this would be happening. That he stays GM, Kyle and Mark are still his assistants, and that this front office that has put the Leafs on the right track remains intact. So, why not keep him? What’s the reason to make this change now? Was it out of fairness to Kyle, to not keep him here on the promise of getting the big job one day?

Sportsnet first reported the two sides were close to an agreement.

Kane, who turns 27 in August, was acquired from Buffalo at the trade deadline. Under the terms of that trade, the Sabres will now get a first-round pick in 2019 instead of a second-rounder because Kane signed with San Jose. The selection is lottery-protected, so it could be moved to 2020.

Kane’s status was one of the biggest questions heading into this offseason for the Sharks, who were knocked out of the playoffs in six games in the second round by eventual Western Conference champion Vegas.

Star Joe Thornton is the other prominent potential free agent on the team but has said he’s willing to come back on a reduced one-year deal.

Kane had issues off the ice and with teammates at times during his stints with Winnipeg and Josh Hill Womens Jersey Buffalo, but melded well with a veteran Sharks team and got the opportunity to go to the postseason for the first time in his career.

Bills release Richie Incognito Jersey

It took a little more than a month, but Richie Incognito got what he wanted from the Bills.

A few days after announcing his intention to retire in April, Incognito was placed on the reserve/retired list in Buffalo. Incognito then reversed course and asked the Bills to release him so that he would be free to continue his career with another team.

The Bills didn’t act on it at the time, but they announced on Monday that Incognito has been released. He immediately becomes a free agent and is eligible to sign with any team that might want to employ him.

As a social activist Foster regularly caught some heat from those who didn’t like his attempts to promote discussion on issues such as race and equality. Back then the familiar refrain was shut up and play football,聽and Foster heard it more times than he cares to remember.

Solder and Flowers, who started at left tackle the last three years, worked together with a blocking pad after practice wrapped up. Flowers spent the session at right tackle, where he began competing upon reporting to work for the first time last week, and got some nice words from head coach Pat Shurmur.

Gregorius last got a hit off Oakland’s Andrew Triggs on Saturday to break the hitless skid. Then he went right back into a funk.

Boone was asked how he thinks the 28-year-old is handling the struggles.

Great, Boone said. Didi, as I’ve talked about this whole year, he’s such a from a makeup standpoint, he’s great. He loves to play. He’s tough. He’s prepared. I think he deals with all that baseball throws at you and baseball’s going to throw bumps in the road when you’re in the middle of being a great player. That’s the nature of being a ball player, you’re going to have these occasional bumps in the road over the course of a season. I think he’s handled it great.

Saints not seeking veteran RB, open to Adrian Peterson Jersey reunion

The New Orleans Saints are down a running back, but that won’t spur them to action in the free agent market.
Men's Reebok Zdeno Chara Premier Navy Blue NHL Jersey: Boston Bruins #33 2012 All Star
Coach Sean Payton said Saturday that the team wasn’t aiming to sign a veteran running back to replace the suspended Mark Ingram, but didn’t rule out a reunion with Adrian Peterson, who had a brief stint with the team in 2017.
Authentic Kids Billy Turner Jersey
Last season with the Seminoles, James amassed 49 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, 11 passes defended and two interceptions.

While James is capable enough to start right away, he has room to grow.

Physically, he’s probably more talented than Jamal Adams, but Adams was more consistent as a player, an NFC scouting director said of James, per Zierlein. Derwin is still learning, so he has a sky-high projection if his play can catch up to the talent.

Monday was slated to be the first day of jury selection but the start was pushed back and now won’t begin because of the settlement.
Elite Kids Ben Chiarot Jersey
As Jay Busbee of Yahoo Sports explained, attorneys for the plaintiff, Eric Inselberg, filed an email from Manning asking Giants equipment manager Joseph Skiba for 2 helmets that can Brian Boyle Jersey pass as game used.

Still, the veteran quarterback has denied wrongdoing in this case while claiming Inselberg had trafficked in fake memorabilia.

I will say I have never done what I have been accused of doing, Manning said last year, per Scooby Axson of Sports Illustrated. I have no reason nor have I had any reason to do anything of that nature. I have done nothing wrong and I have nothing to hide, and I know when this is done everyone will see it the same way.

He will not get a chance to plead his case to a jury, as the two sides were reportedly able to agree to an undisclosed settlement.

Atlanta Falcons sign free-agent DT Terrell McClain

Defensive tackle Terrell McClain has a new home after taking a free-agent tour with the Cowboys, 49ers and Dolphins.

The Falcons on Friday signed McClain to a contract, the team announced. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

On his career, McClain has appeared in 74 games (29 starts) and totaled 110 tackles (75 solo), 6.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.

Whether intended, unintended or both, depending on the expediency of the moment, “Cablinasian” represented the ultimate consequence of greenwashing, of decades of selling the idea that identifying with the black identity was the worst thing a person could do. What an irony it was that after the learned behavior of avoiding pride in being African-American, the one time America wanted finally someone to be black, when the corporations actually encouraged it and were hungry to profit from it instead of running for fear of offending the white mainstream, Tiger Woods did not cooperate.

I’m always kicking stuff around, he said.

After slogging his way through the Jaguars’ wild card win over the Bills, he came alive during a win over the Steelers and a loss to the Patriots, throwing for 507 yards and two touchdowns. The Jaguars, who will enter the 2018 season with Super Bowl dreams due to their dominant defense, have to be hoping that those two games were a sign of things to come rather than a random aberration. Maybe Wednesday night, when Bortles sidestepped disaster before quickly putting the ball in the hands of those who are there to help him, is yet another example of his progress.

The players did not simply find themselves in solidarity with the marchers in the streets but also questioning their place in a sports industry that was selling an image of police that did not often square with their reality. The competing images of black people being killed on dash cam footage and the dozens of law enforcement appreciation nights across the sports calendar forced the players to confront the biggest fractures in their industry: the enormous gap between the business machinery of the game — the white owners, white coaches, white season-ticket base and white media — and them, the majority-black workforces that played the games.

Ex-Giants star says Saquon Barkley Jersey should have gone No. 1 in NFL Draft: Browns ‘always make bad picks’

Brandon Jacobs agrees Saquon Barkley should Cameron Artis-Payne Jersey not have been the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft.
Youth DeAndre' Bembry Swingman Green Nike Jersey: NBA Atlanta Hawks #95 Salute to Service
Except most people who hold that popular opinion think Barkley should have gone lower in the draft because running backs are not valuable enough to be picked that high. On the contrary, Jacobs says the Giants’ rookie running back should have been the No. 1 pick.

He was the best player in the draft, Jacobs told NJ Advance Media. I’m really shocked and surprised that the Cleveland Browns passed on him, but you can’t be too surprised at Cleveland. They always make bad picks. That’s the way they do it. I’m glad they passed on him. I’m glad he is wearing Big Blue.

We have some players, we definitely have some players, Manning said, via the New York Post. Again, on paper is one thing, but you have to be able to do it on the field and you have to have everybody come together. That’s why it’s a team. It’s not four or five guys who make a difference, it’s all 11 and more than that sometimes, both sides doing their parts to find ways to come together as a team to win football games.

Elite Mens Niklas Kronwall Jersey Under two different front office regimes, the Giants passed on win-now players in favor of Davis Webb in the third round in 2016 and in favor of Kyle Lauletta in the fourth round in 2017.

There’s no surprises anymore in the draft, Manning said Monday night at a fundraising event for Guiding Eyes for the Blind at Mulino’s of Westchester. That’s part of the business. Not surprised, I guess.

Elite Mens Josh Norman Jersey One of the reasons Manning probably feels more secure with his job than Roethlisberger sounds is because the Giants passed on a quarterback with the No. 2 pick in the draft. The Giants drafted running back Saquon Barkley instead of Sam Darnold, Josh Allen or Josh Rosen.

It’s really kind of a peek into the garage, Palmer said. The chip inside the new Wilson Connected ball has higher-caliber sensors than the original, and the system is being designed to work within a team environment. You can record up to 18 balls at one given time and you go through practice like normal and you’ll be able to download all of this data that goes to a spreadsheet, Wilson Labs engineer Dan Hare explained. From there, they can choose to import it into their video systems or review it with an analytics group or on their own.
