Chase Daniel is impressed with Mitchell Trubisky

Chase Daniel has seen a thing or two during his NFL career, backing up franchise quarterbacks like Drew Brees and Alex Smith. Now with the Bears, Chase Daniel likes what he has seen so far from Mitchell Trubisky.

What’s the possibility of Calvin Ridley playing the No. 2 receiver spot (outside) and Mohamed Sanu playing in the slot? It seems like that would be the better spot for both of them given their skill sets. What do you think? Thanks, and keep up the good work. The countdown to football is on!

Matt: Based on what we’ve seen during rookie minicamp, OTAs, and mandatory minicamp, the Falcons have Sean Taylor Womens Jersey moved Calvin Ridley around quite a bit, Shane. And if I were a betting man, I’d put some down on that trend continuing into the preseason and regular season. I don’t see one of those guys being locked into a position exclusively, however. And you’re right about the countdown – we’re less than 30 days away from the start of training camp. The players report July 26 and the first practice is on the 27th.

The streak started in West Germany in 1974, and his father Lamar Hunt opted out of a trip to Argentina in 1978, but Clark Hunt has been to every World Cup since.

My dad was all about spectacle and the fan experience, and there isn’t anything that produces that like a World Cup, Hunt said.

Lamar Hunt was an early investor in soccer in the United States, Sean Kilpatrick Jersey buying into what would become the North American Soccer League in the 1970s and later the MLS (owning F.C. Dallas).

Clark played four years of college soccer at SMU, and he has bigger dreams for the sport. Kansas City is among the cities with bids to host games in 2026, when the World Cup will be played in Mexico, the United States and Canada.

Seems to be a lot of guesswork concerning our tight end situation. We have an all-star rugby player on the team. What do you think about plugging him in just to see if he can be as good at American football as he is in rugby? I think he could be our biggest sleeper. Thanks.

Jameis Winston, if nothing else, is guilty of being dumb

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston may actually be innocent of the allegations made against him by an Uber driver in March 2016. Even if he is, he’s guilty of being dumb.
#7 Nike Swingman Al Jefferson Women's Gold NBA Jersey - Indiana Pacers Statement Edition
This incident happened less than a year after the Buccaneers drafted him under the cloud of a rape allegation that resulted in a civil lawsuit, not to mention other boneheaded off-field incidents, including the stealing of crab legs and the shouting of a vulgar phrase. At the time Winston allegedly groped the Clinton McDonald Womens Jersey Uber driver, the rape lawsuit was still pending.

Josh Harrison (R), 44.6 percent, Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers (LHP Brent Suter): Stats haven’t shown it yet in his abbreviated 2018, but Harrison typically succeeds against southpaws (.286/.375/.482 with six homers in 128 plate appearances last year). Suter has allowed 10 of his 12 homers, a.334 wOBA and a.482 slugging percentage to righty sticks in 2018.

Jeimer Candelario (B), 32.7 percent, Detroit Tigers at Cincinnati Reds (RHP Tyler Mahle): Though Candelario typically prefers to face southpaws, Mahle has sustained the fourth-highest wOBA (.391) from opposing RHBs. The switch hitter is 4-for-29 in his past eight games, but this could be a cure for that slide.

The top two teams went with slam-dunk choices, so now the best defenseman (Dahlin) and best forward (Svechnikov) are off the board.

A generational defenseman?

Dahlin stands as the first Swedish player to be selected first overall since Mats Sundin. He’s the most hyped defensive prospect since Authentic Haloti Ngata Jersey at least Victor Hedman, while some argue that we haven’t seen this level of excitement for a blueliner since Denis Potvin. Yes, he’s a big deal.

The Sabres might have more big moves coming soon. There are some rumbling about Ryan O’Reilly being traded, while they opted not to qualify RFA goalie Robin Lehner.

Adding Dahlin to the mix – he’s likely to make an immediate jump into the NHL, and instantly become one of the best Buffallo blueliners – makes everything run more smoothly.

Mailbag: Is Flacco ready for his year-long NFL audition?

Dan Hanzus takes questions from you, the readers, in his latest mailbag. Thanks to everyone who sent in questions. That was cool.
Men's Authentic Majestic Ozzie Guillen White Alternate Jersey - #13 MLB Chicago White Sox Flex Base
Unfortunately, Flacco blew out his knee the year after his career-best effort, and he hasn’t been close to the same quarterback since. The Ravens need Flacco to return to pre-knee injury heights or his trade value could be minimized to the point where they’ll simply to decide to cut their former Super Bowl hero loose and take the $10.5 million in cap space. Either way, Morris Claiborne Jersey this season feels like a league-wide audition for Flacco, who is likely to be playing elsewhere in 2019.

As for your question, Mark, it’s simply too early to gauge the quarterback landscape this far in advance. The Giants could make some sense if Eli Manning doesn’t have a renaissance of his own. But just for fun, let’s throw out the Patriots, who will be in desperate need of a veteran stopgap when Tom Brady abruptly retires next March.

This time, the Yankees fell behind five runs, then staged an amazing rally that was capped by a 453-foot, two-run, walk-off homer in the ninth by Giancarlo Stanton.

Somehow, the Yankees pulled out the win 7-5 to make it two in a row Preston Brown Womens Jersey over the Mariners.

Down 5-0 after 4 1/2 innings, the Yankees tied the game 5-5 in the eighth on a two-run homer by Gary Sanchez and won it in the ninth when Didi Gregorius singled with two outs and Stanton followed with a homer to left-center off righty Ryan Cook on a 0-2, 85-mph slider that split the plate knee high.

I don’t know how hard (Stanton) hit it, but that ball was scolded, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. Giancarlo hits it and starts celebrating at home plate knowing. He’s a different animal.

The homer was the 18th of the season and second in two nights for Stanton.

Earlier, Sanchez tied it with a huge homer.

David Price can’t stop calling himself ‘soft’ in post-game comments

David Price was in a joking mood after his win Monday over the Blue Jays. He couldn’t stop calling himself soft even after he was hit in the chest by a line drive during the middle innings.

Price has had an eventful year of injuries as he missed a couple of starts with numbness in his fingers during his first few starts, and then found out he had carpal tunnel syndrome which many blamed on his excessive time playing Fortnite.

Adding to Washington’s woes is the fact that even though Murphy and Eaton are back, they’re not all the way back. Eaton sat out Thursday, the third time in 10 days that he hasn’t started, as the club makes a conscious effort to ease him back into everyday mode. Murphy, who is 3-for-30 since returning and has looked generally un-Murphy like at the dish, got a breather on Thursday too. The result was a lineup that had a 19-year old batting cleanup (rookie Juan Soto) and one of baseball’s coldest hitters in the leadoff spot (Harper).

ZACH: I’ve dealt with an injury the past two years at the beginning of the season, and her ability to help me maintain focus and not get too upset or too down … She’ll drop whatever she has to come out to Philadelphia, even though she’s playing in Chicago. It’s definitely a burden to take that time off from her sport, but she knows that sometimes you have to do that in order to help the other person out.

JULIE: I feel very comfortable in who I am now, and he’s definitely a part of it — continuing to say how beautiful my muscles are, or he loves when I’m running or working out. He’s behind me, he wants me to succeed and pushes me. That’s been really special the past five years now.

ZACH: I love watching Julie play. I know how much work she puts into her sport and her craft — to see that hard work pay off is very satisfying to me too.

JULIE: I think it’s a lot easier for me to watch Zach play than it is for his other family members, just because I know how much he loves the sport and how hard he works at it. The closer I sit, when I hear more of the pads banging against each other, my heart races a little bit. But I just want him to succeed and do what he loves.

Garoppolo: 49ers focusing on finishing in red zone

The San Francisco 49ers famously went 5-0 with Jimmy Garoppolo as the starting quarterback in 2017. There were few complaints about the experience, but the nitpicking quarterback found one: red zone efficiency.
Men's Adidas Erik Gudbranson Premier Black NHL Jersey: Vancouver Canucks #44 1917-2017 100th Anniversary
Those are point plays, Garoppolo said. Bradley McDougald Jersey They’re either seven-point plays or three-point plays. You know what I mean? Those are the ones that really matter.

Phillips raises a valid point, as the Rams certainly know what they already have with Donald.

I would just say that it was 14 years ago, it was a different time, it was different people, and we as an organization, we learned from it, Davis said at a media day in May. When you set up a U.S. Open it is golf’s ultimate test, it’s probably set up closer to the edge than any other event in golf and I think that the difference then versus now is there was a lot more, we have a lot more technology, a lot more data in our hands.

Colts punter Pat McAfee tweeted: Hey NFLPA. Let’s chat with the folks from NBAPA ASAP.

None of this will change soon. The contract fights will continue. The holdouts will continue.

The battle for what makes Womens Brent Grimes Jersey the NFL run—cash—continues.

He comes downhill, man, and that’s something you can appreciate as a nose tackle and a defensive tackle, Harrison said. That means those centers and those guards have got to make decisions really fast. If not, he’ll be in the backfield and he’s a smart guy. I’m just excited to get in an actual game with him because I know those guys on the line, they have to respect what he brings to the field, so that should open up a lot for me.

On the first day of the mandatory three-day minicamp, Harrison was asked why he missed the majority of the offseason workouts.

I was minding my damn business, he said.

Gerald McCoy explains why he’s OK with his DL coach yelling at him during practice

At a minicamp practice last week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston drew star defensive lineman Gerald McCoy offsides with a hard count. In response, new Buccaneers defensive line coach Brentson Buckner — a former defensive lineman himself — went off on his charges, lighting into them for not paying enough attention to detail and sticking with the snap count.

Hell yeah, I’ll do it’: How ex-Rutgers QB Gary Nova landed coaching job at Paramus Catholic

John Whitehead asked for names as he began to build his Paramus Catholic coaching staff.

He got one everyone in New Jersey is quite familiar with.

The Saints are signing West to a deal, according to a source informed of the situation.

The Saints also looked at Jamaal Charles, who had a good visit and passed the physical, according to a source familiar with the situation. The two sides, however, decided the situation didn’t make sense at this time and could revisit at a later time.

New Orleans also has veteran Tim Hightower in minicamp on a tryout basis.

That was former GM Mike Reinfeldt’s last chance to right the ship in Tennessee. He lost his job at the conclusion of Locker’s rookie season, and he’s probably still thinking about the fact J.J. Watt went off the board three spots after Locker.

But according to Jayson Jenks of the Athletic, Ryan has no intentions of handing the job to fifth-round pick Michael Dickson.

[Schneider] had that attitude almost like, ‘Sorry, but I had Mark Andrews Jersey to do it, Ryan said when he first crossed paths with his G.M. after the draft. And I was like, ‘Don’t apologize! Do not apologize.’ This is the business. If all the players got to pick who was on the Matthew Tkachuk Authentic Jersey team every year, we’d still have the Super Bowl team from five years ago.

Giants’ Saquon Barkley minicamp highlights

Well, this is interesting, if you consider a bust quarterback visiting his former team’s rival to be interesting:
Youth Nike Seattle Seahawks #50 K.J. Wright Limited Olive/Camo 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
The Jets traded Hackenberg to the Raiders last month for a conditional seventh-round Alex Collins Jersey draft pick. But the Raiders are going to keep that pick, because they waived Hackenberg after just three weeks. (The conditions involved how many games Hackenberg spent on the Raiders’ roster.)

Machado to Philly?

But it’s Machado’s bat that will be the headliner wherever he signs and regardless of the position he plays in 2019 and beyond. Heading into play on June 15, Machado owns a.957 OPS with 18 HR and 50 RBI.

The Phillies, after signing Carlos Santana to play first base and moving Rhys Hoskins to left field, have shown a willingness to sacrifice defense for offense when it comes to a big move. Landing Machado to play shortstop, not third, would fit that mentality.

The two teams won’t get a 26th roster spot for the finish of the suspended game, but they will for the second game. Teams typically receive a 26th player for both games of a normal double header.

So, if for some reason the Jaguars don’t manage to have a great running game and great defense, and the division ends up being much better than anyone Al Woods Jersey expected ( Andrew Luck and Deshaun Watson come back to full health, etc.), it’s possible this team ends up being a.500 squad that greatly disappoints. The Pick Looking at the schedule and looking at what they’ve done in terms of doubling down on their strengths, it’s just dumb to pick against the Jaguars at this point. The Colts could be a serious monkey wrench if Luck is back and it costs the Jags one or two wins on their schedule, but even against the cream of the crop in the AFC, it’s hard to see this team winning less than 10 games.

Giants sign TE Garrett Dickerson, waive three others

The Giants have added a local product to the roster ahead of next week’s three-day minicamp.

Tight end Garrett Dickerson attended Bergen Catholic High School, which is a short drive from MetLife Stadium, before heading to Northwestern to play his college ball. Dickerson caught 87 passes for 887 yards and nine touchdowns in 49 games at the school and set career highs in catches and receiving yards during his final season with the Wildcats.

I’ve felt pressure, every day, all six, seven years in the NFL. This year is no different. I’ve just gotten to the point where it’s — that’s life. So, I don’t think of pressure now. I just go play.

Judging by Cousins’ body language (relaxed yet purposeful) as he navigated the practice field, it certainly looked like the former fourth-round pick has mastered dealing with expectations — at this time of year anyway.

You just never knew, Crowell told the New York Post. Sometimes it was [an every-down situation], sometimes it wasn’t. You just never knew week in and week out. I felt like that was discouraging and annoying.

That doesn’t speak well for Browns head coach Hue Jackson. Nor does Jackson’s record of 1-31 in Cleveland. Crowell started all 32 of those games, and he says it frustrated him to keep losing.

It wasn’t a good feeling. Nobody likes to lose, Crowell said. I’m a sore loser. I do whatever I can to win. It wasn’t a good feeling.

Of course, by leaving the Browns for the Jets, Crowell is still on a team that hasn’t been winning much recently. He’ll hope he can be a part of changing that.

No team asks more of a lineman who predominantly plays between the tackles than the San Francisco 49ers have of DeForest Buckner early on in his career. He’s handled it about as well as anyone could have asked, landing in the eighth spot on Bleacher Report’s defensive tackle rankings for its NFL1000 project.

Donald Trump’s cheap political stunt will make the Philadelphia Eagles stronger

Well, what a surprise, right? Donald Trump couldn’t stomach the idea that most of the Philadelphia Eagles decided not to attend a White House ceremony with a president who had turned their sport and many of its players into a political pinata over the past few months.
Youth Nike Carolina Panthers #70 Trai Turner Limited Blue Rush Vapor Untouchable NFL Jersey
Not a Luke Schenn Youth Jersey single Eagles player kneeled during the anthem in the 2017 season. Not. A. Single. One. Their reasons for not attending the White House ceremony are far more nuanced and vary from player to player, and in most cases, their answers to the go-or-not-go question were thoughtful and measured.

That’s just the nature of his at-bats, Boone said. He gets so deep in counts that he’s going to have that occasional day where it’s like that, but he can just as easily put a big swing on one. I don’t think he’s really fazed by it.

Judge may sit out Tuesday’s series opener in Toronto, but according to Boone, it wouldn’t have anything to do with this.

I’m considering it just because I was considering giving him a day at some point on this trip. But with the rainout (Sunday), I treated that a little bit like an off day. But a long day (Monday)… we’ll just wait and see.

Rutgers hasn’t won an individual national championship in 15 years (and that was in a sport the athletic department promptly dropped ). Winkler has a shot to end that drought this week when he heads to Oregon for the NCAA Track and Field Championships.

I definitely think it starts from the top, Bill Jason Peters Jersey [Belichick] and Mr. Kraft, and then it just trickles down, McClellin told’s Mike Reiss. Then you have leaders like Tom [Brady] and Matt [Slater] and Dev [ Devin McCourty ] the captains. When you come in as a new guy or a young guy, and you see how laid-back and easy-going the captains are; they’ll just come up and talk to you and genuinely want to know about how you’re doing and how your life is.

Brantley added a long drive down the right-field line in the fifth.

The Indians recalled catcher and outfielder Francisco Mejia from Triple-A Columbus and optioned right-hander Evan Marshall to the minor league club. They also released right-hander Matt Belisle from his minor league contract.
Men's Edmonton Oilers #93 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Adidas Black Premier 1917-2017 100th Anniversary NHL Jersey
Indians: 2B Jason Kipnis was out of the lineup for the second straight game and 1B Edwin Encarnacion (ankle) for the third in a row. … Francona said LHP Andrew Miller had his best bullpen session since he was placed on the 10-day disabled list in late May because of inflammation in his left knee. Miller will likely throw another one Wednesday and could start facing hitters once the team opens a nine-game homestand on Friday. … Francona said the Indians were waiting another day to decide whether to place catcher Roberto Perez on the DL. He was hit by a pitch in the right wrist against Detroit on Sunday. … The Indians held off on activating OF Brandon Guyer after he was hit on the wrist during a rehab game for Columbus on Sunday.

Trout tied Boston slugger J.D. Martinez for the major league lead with 21 homers. Albert Pujols also went deep for the Angels.

Jon Jay could well jump-start the Arizona offense, which has been quite dismal so far in 2018 the only player on the team’s active roster prior to the deal with a batting average over .260 was pitcher Larry Warford Authentic Jersey Patrick Corbin. The Diamondbacks get seven home games to try and straighten things out. Also with a seven-game home slate this week are the White Sox (Jose Abreu is .301-5 HR-19 RBI in Chicago) and the Mariners, who should get to face three left-handed starters. In those games this season, Jean Segura has hit .391.

Baltimore is also currently tabbed to face three LHP. OK, one of those is Chris Sale, but the other two are Eduardo Rodriguez and Wei-Yin Chen. Still, the Orioles have three hitters ranked in the top 50 in the league against left-handed pitching (minimum 50 at-bats) with Adam Jones (.324), Jake Guentzel Jersey Jonathan Schoop (.298) and Manny Machado (.297). Tampa Bay will also get a troika of left-handers (Jaime Garcia, J.A. Happ and CC Sabathia) and have two top-50 versus LHP bats to send to the plate: C.J. Cron (.309) and Wilson Ramos (.304).
