Panthers’ TE Greg Olsen is signing a two-year extension today worth $8.55M per year with a max value of Authentic Mike Adams Jersey up to $10.05M per year, per source. Could make him NFL’s highest paid TE.

Olsen dealt with a foot injury last season and appeared in just seven games. He totaled 17 catches for 191 yards and a score.

Olsen made the Pro Bowl for three straight seasons from 2014-16. He caught seven touchdown passes for Carolina in 2015 and registered 80 receptions for 1,073 yards and three scores the following season.

Peters: I have been so hot and cold on the Maple Leafs all series. I picked them in seven before this roller coaster started. I have admired their pushback and thought their overall performance in Game 6 was impressive. I also think I have continually underestimated the Bruins. The experience factor is a big one, especially in this specific situation. With home ice on their side, my brain is telling me it’s Boston. My pre-series pick, however, is telling me, no takebacks.

Game Womens J.J. Nelson Jersey Arledge: My original prediction was Toronto in seven games, so I’m married to it at this point. The Leafs roll in with some momentum, and I feel another quality outing coming from Andersen. Even though they’ll be on the road in a loud building, I’ll stick with the Maple Leafs to complete the comeback.

Goodell drew ire from Dallas fans in particular following a feud with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones surrounding the suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott last season. Things got so heated that Jones tried to block a contract extension for Goodell, though his attempts ultimately failed.

Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager was checked on by trainers after slipping while chasing a pop fly. He remained in the game, and Roberts said he expects Seager to be OK.

Relievers Merandy Gonzalez, Junichi Tazawa and Brad Ziegler were hit around a bit late but held on for Miami. Gonzalez (1-0) earned his first career win.

After losing five in a row, Miami has won two straight and clinched its first series victory of the season.

Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer for the Dodgers in the eighth, and Yasmani Grandal added a two-run homer in the ninth, but the Marlins held on to win. Chris Taylor went 0 for 5 and had his seven-game hitting streak snapped.

Give the Marlins credit, they out hit us, out pitched us and won the series, Roberts said.

Former NFL defensive end Dee Hardison Jersey dies at 61

Game Kids Sharrif Floyd Jersey Former NFL defensive end Dee Hardison died of heart failure Saturday in North Carolina. He was 61.
Nike Janoris Jenkins Women's Olive Limited Jersey: #20 NFL New York Giants 2017 Salute To Service
The Bills made him a second-round pick in 1978. Hardison spent three years with the Bills, who converted him to an offensive lineman before releasing him late in the 1981 season.

The Giants signed him, and Hardison played in both of their postseason games that season. He played four of 11 seasons with the Giants from 1982-85 before two years with the Chargers and one with the Chiefs.

He was cool, laid back. He just wanted to talk.

Though Jackson is not in the group of the top four quarterbacks 鈥?Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen 鈥?bunched at the top of most draft boards, his stock has seemed to rise recently with more reports linking him to the Patriots, who have picks No. 23 and 31.

Jackson said five teams invited him for on-site visits. Just two came to South Florida to work him out privately. The Patriots, who run an offense similar to the one Jackson mastered at Louisville, were the only team to do both, sending offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to the workout.

McCown only made 10 starts over that extended run and ends his career 216-of-356 for 2,370 passing yards, nine touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He also became the rare backup quarterback to appear in a commercial when Verizon tabbed him for an ad campaign.

His older brother Josh is currently with the Jets and also made starts for the Browns and Buccaneers during his own long run as an NFL journeyman.

Coming up with one industry standard is a huge challenge. But it has to happen and everybody knows that.Saquon Barkley received a special delivery two days before Thursday’s NFL Draft.

Penn State’s star running back announced Tuesday he and girlfriend Mark McGwire Youth jersey Anna Congdon welcomed their first child together, daughter Jada Clare Barkley.

Words can’t even describe how I feel right now. You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life, Barkley, 21, posted on Instagram. Thank God for blessing me with you in my life and into my arms. I pray that I can be the best father to you and help you grow into an amazing woman.

Shaquem Griffin: ‘I’m not just a feel-good story’

Shaquem Griffin wakes up knowing each day will be better than the last and barely able to wait until tomorrow.

“It’s just a whirlwind,” Griffin said.

On Thursday, he will walk the red carpet with his family, including his twin brother, Seahawks cornerback Shaquill, at the NFL draft at AT&T Stadium.

The league that originally didn’t think enough of Griffin to make him one of 330 players to be invited to the NFL scouting combine now is celebrating him by including him in one of the biggest nights of the year.

Jordan Whitehead, Pittsburgh: His three-game suspension to start the 2017 season, which hurt the team, lingers and takes away from his solid 2017 numbers — 60 tackles, three passes broken up and one interception.

Siran Neal, Jacksonville State: A college cornerback who projects as an NFL safety, he had 39 tackles with 11 passes broken up, a forced fumble and an interception in 2017. As a junior, he had 80 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss, a half sack, four passes batted, one forced fumble and an interception.

His overall performance took a bit of a dip last year, but that could be due to the fact that he was asked to play closer to the line of scrimmage in 2017 than in the preceding campaigns. Over the past two seasons, he has started every game and has compiled 130 tackles, two interceptions (including one pick-six), and two forced fumbles.

Jones will be moving back to cornerback in 2018, as he confirmed just last week. He will work under the tutelage of new defensive backs coach Kris Richard, who helped turn the Seahawks’ secondary into one of the most formidable in the league during his time in Seattle.

Lucic: Funny story: My dad actually went to bed at 3-1 because he gave up on us. And my younger brother, who was superstitious, didn’t wake my dad up until [Bergeron] scored in overtime. My dad didn’t believe him. So he made my dad come down and watch the highlights.

Tom Brady Jersey could miss first day of offseason program

There’s much consternation in many cities if the team’s best player doesn’t show up for the first day of voluntary offseason workouts.
Youth Authentic Adidas Tyler Bertuzzi Camo Jersey - #59 NHL Detroit Red Wings Veterans Day Practice
That shouldn’t be the case with the Patriots.

Via Albert Breer of, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady isn’t expected to be on hand for the start of the conditioning program.

But he’s not holding out for a new contract or in some kind of tiff with Bill Belichick over his training methods, he’s off doing some good for the world. He’s leaving today for Qatar to do work for his charity, Best Buddies. Because Qatar is far from Foxboro, and Brady isn’t expected to head back home until Monday, the chances of him making it to the Patriots facility Monday morning seems slim.

Jaime Garcia (2-0) allowed back-to-back homers by Moustakas and Duda in the third. He gave up three runs on eight hits in five innings, walking one and striking out five.

Elite Womens Russell Martin Jersey Blue Jays: Martin and Travis started the opener but sat out the nightcap, the only two changes Toronto made to its lineup. … DH Kendrys Morales (right hamstring) is not expected to require a rehab assignment before rejoining the team. Morales went on the disabled list April 10.

Hopefully I can play until I’m 40, Witten said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. Just taking it one year at a time.

Elite Womens Sean Lee Jersey Witten, who turns 36 next month, restructured his contract earlier this offseason. He has played in 239 of a possible 240 games in his career, but, in 2017, he had the fewest yards since his rookie season with 560.

For starters, there is no talent evaluator in the NFL who gets them all right. Seattle general manager John Schneider found Richard Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowler, in the fifth round of the 2011 draft. That pick came after he took James Carpenter (now on the Jets) in the first round and Ernie Stautner Authentic Jersey John Moffitt, who played 19 total games, in the third round. Did Schneider suddenly get smarter on the third day of the draft?

Examples like this across the league are easy to find. Bill Belichick made arguably the greatest pick in NFL draft history when he tapped Tom Brady with the 199th pick in 2000. He also took Dominique Easley in the first round of the 2014 draft and ended up cutting him two years later.

Maybe you would argue the picks of Hackenberg and Petty show Maccagnan is weak at evaluating the quarterback position specifically. Did Jerry Reese not know what he was doing when he picked wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. because he drafted Ramses Barden a few years earlier?

John Schneider says he wanted to see Josh Allen Jersey throw in-person after missing earlier chance

John Schneider’s trip to Laramie, Wyoming to view the pro day of quarterback Josh Allen on March 23 apparently seemed to raise some eyebrows among Russell Wilson’s inner circle.
Adidas NHL Youth Chris Pronger Royal Blue Home Premier Jersey - #44 St. Louis Blues
But the Seahawks General Manager may have just been scratching a curiosity itch more than anything else. According to Aaron Levine of Q13 in Seattle, Schneider said he wanted to see Allen throw in person after missing a chance to view him during the college season.
Jake Fisher Youth Jersey
I hadn’t seen him play live, Schneider said. I was supposed to see him play in San Jose before we played San Francisco and he was injured and didn’t play in the game, so I just wanted to go check him out.

So any furor over Schneider’s trip to Wyoming would seem to be misplaced. For now, it appears Schneider was merely taking the chance to see a player he hadn’t been able to watch during the season, which seems to be a good way to live up to the job description.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that South Carolina’s Hayden Hurst and South Dakota State’s Dallas Goedert are in Miami to meet Womens Zach Fulton Jersey with the team. Both players have been projected as potential selections during the first two days of the draft.

Goedert caught 164 passes for 2,404 yards and 18 touchdowns over his final two collegiate seasons. Hurst wasn’t quite as productive 鈥?92 catches for 1,175 yards and three touchdowns 鈥?but earns good marks as a balanced tight end who can contribute as both a receiver and a blocker.

Oklahoma’s Mark Andrews and Penn State’s Mike Gesicki generally join Goedert and Hurst at the top of the rankings for tight ends. Seeing any of them wind up with the Dolphins will not come as a great surprise later this month.

The only run Miranda allowed was due to defensive mistakes and likely would not have scored if first baseman Vogelbach threw home after fielding Josh Reddick’s ground ball instead of attempting to start a double play. Houston left the bases loaded twice against Miranda, the most egregious coming in the second inning when Jake Marisnick struck out looking and George Springer went down swinging to end the threat. Miranda ended his night getting Reddick to fly out to center field with the bases loaded to end the fifth inning.

Does Tom Brady Jersey want a new contract?

Patriots owner Robert Kraft recently said that, if quarterback Tom Brady’s contract becomes an issue, the team will deal with it. They soon may have to deal with it.
Elite Demarcus Walker Youth Alternate Navy Blue Nike Jersey - #57 NFL Denver Broncos Vapor Untouchable
Brady definitely doesn’t need the money, given the millions he has made on and off the field and the millions more his wife has earned as a model. But at a time when Brady may be wondering whether his accomplishments and efforts have been fully appreciated (especially by his head coach), giving him a raise would go a long way toward confirming that the Patriots continue to feel the same way about Brady that they always have.

Polian said his own scouts were split, with half rating Leaf a better prospect.

Those Womens Trent Taylor Jersey that liked Manning were not terribly anti-Leaf, Polian said. Those who liked Leaf, for some reason, were vociferously anti-Manning.

The Colts obviously made the right choice, leaving the Chargers to select Leaf. Then-Chargers General Manager Bobby Beathard will enter the Hall of Fame in August, ahead of Manning, but behind Polian.

Selectors didn’t hold Leaf against Beathard, perhaps remembering 1.) It’s not like he chose Leaf over Manning. Manning was off the board; and 2.) Many scouts liked Leaf more than Manning, whether they admit it today or not.

Russell Wilson will argue that, Bowles said. As well as Fran Tarkenton. As well as quite a few other guys. So you don’t know. If you can play, you can play.

There are also some who see Mayfield as a character risk after an arrest last year and then some high-profile incidents on the field, like planting the flag midfield at Ohio State after the Sooners won.

Holiday played Tuesday night with emotion he did not often show earlier in his career. He agreed that it felt a weight has been lifted.
Limited Kids Shaquil Barrett Jersey
My family’s the most important thing to me, and with them being OK I can come back to the team freely and be able to help them out now, Holiday said. It’s been fun. I feel like my teammates and the organization definitely helped me out coming back from things with my family, and even the injuries, with being able to play and being able to perform at the peak I’m performing.

NFL star and party animal Rob Gronkowski has big plans for when he retires from football.

We hear the Patriots tight end was telling guests at Shaquille O’Neal’s Miami Music Week event “Fun House” that he wants to win ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” and added, “I’m the best dancer in the NFL,” and so good on his feet, he says, that he’s even incorporating dance into his workouts.

The frequently shirtless footballer showed off his “DWTS”-worthy skills in a dance battle with O’Neal that ended with 6-foot-6 Gronk riding the 7-foot-1 NBA legend’s shoulders.

Ozzie Albies is tied for the lead among middle infielders in home runs (five), third in OPS and second in slugging percentage. As great as his start has been, there is one problem: Albies didn’t draw a walk until this weekend. That said, he has helped the Braves to a winning record midway through the first month of the season. — Woolums

The only teams averaging fewer runs per game than the Giants this season are the Royals and Reds. That isn’t a desirable group to be in for a team that had wild-card aspirations entering the season. The starting pitching has kept the Giants afloat, but there have been hiccups. Despite a rotation that has been without Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija at points, if not the entire season, the Giants sport the ninth-best starter ERA in the NL. — Langs

“The pressure was just hard. The pressure got hard to where I just remember just collapsing completely. And I just woke up in a puddle of blood on the kitchen floor. My whole right side was full of blood on the kitchen floor.”

The Seahawks cut Boykin hours after the accusations became public.

Bailey said Boykin later dragged her to the bathtub, undressed her and tried to clean her off. Hours later, Bailey said, the 24-year-old Seahawk drove her to Dallas Regional Medical Center. When they were separated for questioning, Boykin allegedly left and never came back.

Bailey’s jaw was broken on both her left and right sides, and she eventually needed to be airlifted to another hospital in Dallas after she had difficulty breathing because of the injuries.

“And I’ve never seen that much blood. I thought I was bleeding from somewhere else cause it was so much blood, completely,” Bailey said.

The couple was arrested around this time last year after crashing her car while intoxicated, which Bailey now says was caused by Boykin attacking her. She said she covered for him that time but denied his plea to do the same last week.

Ravens showing most interest in Dez Bryant Jersey

Authentic David Justice Jersey Dez Bryant might not get his wish to clash with the Cowboys twice a year by joining an NFC East squad , but he is drawing interest from a potential playoff contender.
Baltimore has shown the most interest in Bryant since he was released by Dallas last Friday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the situation.

Turning 34 in August, Staley remains one of the top left tackles in the NFL. The raise puts his pay better in line with his value. The Niners are ensuring Jimmy G’s blindside blocker is happy entering what could be a turnaround season for a legendary franchise that has been down too long.

Allen could very well be the Bills’ target even if the organization executes a draft-day move since it isn’t settled at quarterback.

Authentic Brent Seabrook Jersey Right now, AJ McCarron is the Bills’ projected starter with Nathan Peterman serving as the backup. Allen provides a long-term plan after the organization decided to move past Tyrod Taylor.

Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick will never be the biggest, fastest or toughest player on the field. His intelligence, dedication and playmaking ability can’t be defined during the predraft process, though, and his slotting reflects some devaluation.聽

The one X factor here: If Darnold survives the first three picks, one of those mega-trades might pop up. I wouldn’t do it if I were Dorsey, and I had the chance to get a player like Chubb here.

Saints sign Benjamin Watson Jersey

Saints coach Sean Payton said this week that adding a tight end was a must for the team this offseason and the Saints got one on Wednesday.
Youth Nick Markakis Replica Red Majestic Jersey: MLB Atlanta Braves #22 Alternate Cool Base
PFT has learned, via a league source, that Benjamin Watson has agreed to a one-year deal. It will be Watson’s second stint in New Orleans as he played for the Saints from 2013-2015.

Elite Kids Lorenzo Alexander Jersey Watson wasn’t the only former Saint that the team showed interest in bringing Authentic Ron Francis Jersey back this offseason. They pursued Jimmy Graham before Graham agreed to a three-year deal with the Packers early in free agency.

The move also would explain the decision to move to No. 3. Few expect Mayfield to be one of the first two picks in the draft. But there’s a good chance Mayfield would have been gone by No. 6, especially if a team drafting lower than No. 6 had opted to trade up and cut the line in front of New York.

Much like the continual changing of direction in the front office, the team now appears to want to change track once again with the team’s uniforms after just three seasons in their current garb.

Kids Paul Martin Jersey According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, co-owner Dee Haslam said at the league meetings that the team has begun to discuss uniform changes with the NFL.

We’ve had some mechanical difficulties with our uniforms, which has been very frustrating for the equipment guys, so I can definitely see that from a mechanical standpoint, we have to fix that, Haslam said. From a design element, that’s really up in the air.

They’ve not been very popular with our fans, and obviously we serve at the pleasure of our fans. 鈥?We definitely are going to look at it, and I think we were pretty new when that started the last time. We really didn’t understand the process. I think we’re much better equipped at it now to make better decisions.

Russell Wilson’s camp interested in Seahawks’ interest in Josh Allen Jersey

The Seahawks need a backup quarterback, but a team drafting Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen isn’t selecting him as a long-term backup. That’s why Russell Wilson’s camp took notice when General Manager John Schneider attended Allen’s Pro Day.

As a result, the league’s concerns about the ownership of the Titans still linger. Bud Adams spread the team equally among his three children’s families, but Adams did not give any one of them control. The NFL insists on one person having control, and the NFL has yet to force the situation to a head.

The easiest outcome could be for Strunk to purchase the 33-percent interest held by her sister. Then Strunk would hold 66 percent of the team, and clear and obvious control. Strunk, however, apparently lacks the resources or the interest in doing that.
Kids Kirk Mclean Jersey
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, a fair amount of cursory interest has emerged, and multiple candidates have been close to buying the asset. At least one, according to the source, was very close to making the purchase.

Thus, ownership of the Titans will continue to be out of technical compliance with the league’s guidelines (from the NFL’s perspective), and the Titans will continue to operate the team in a Chris Conley Authentic Jersey way that the organization deems appropriate. And Susie Adams Smith will continue to wait for someone who is willing to acquire a major interest in 鈥?but no ability to control any portion of 鈥?a billion-dollar business enterprise.

Trotter said it means nothing for this season.
