According to David Newton of ESPN.com, rapper Sean Diddy Combs and NBA Jermey Parnell Jersey star guard Stephen Curry are both a part of Michael Rubin’s ownership group seeking to purchase the Panthers.

Tepper has a stake in the Pittsburgh Steelers, which he would have to part with to take control of the Panthers.

Voted Michigan’s most valuable player in 2017, Hurst made 59 tackles, (13 1/2 for loss) and five sacks last year as a consensus All-American selection.聽

If he’s given a clean bill of health, most scouts believe Hurst has first-round potential in the upcoming NFL draft.聽

Even so, the amount of turnover this offseason has caught several ers by surprise.

Authentic John Timu Jersey Linebacker K.J. Wright said Tuesday that the upheaval has been difficult to handle.

It’s been one of the toughest offseasons to deal with, Wright said on Sirius XM NFL Radio, via Alex Marvez of the Sporting News. Every year it’s not fun when guys leave, but this has hurt pretty bad. You just didn’t see that happening the way it did.

It’s a ruthless business. We know what we signed up for; however, it still doesn’t make it easier.

The Seahawks released cornerback Richard Sherman only to see him sign with the San Francisco 49ers, traded defensive end Michael Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles and released cornerback Jeremy Lane. Deshawn Shead was also released, though they are hopeful for a return on a new contract. Additionally, defensive end Cliff Avril and safety Kam Chancellor both have their careers in jeopardy due to serious neck injuries.

Simpson also was asked about the bloody glove found at the scene. Again, the hypotheticals sound a lot more factual.

I had no conscious memory of doing that, but obviously I must have because they found the glove there, Simpson said.

With the recent free agent signings I feel excited as ever for next season. How do you think Jeremy Hill will fit in Personally I was a big fan of Burkhead when he was able to play last season and healthy and think he could be the main back like Lewis was last season. What are your thoughts on the running back situation and how it will work out Another interesting signing was Tobin from the Eagles. I don’t know much about him but was wondering if he was starting material.

Kids Mack Hollins Jersey What would you think about moving Cannon to left tackle to protect the blindside while moving someone else (for example Waddle if we can re-sign him) to right tackle Do you think Clayborn can be a big contributor given he had six sacks in one game and only 3.5 the rest of the season What should be the focus in the first two rounds I know it’s a lot of questions but I’m a huge fan of the Pats and this column. Authentic Marquise Goodwin Jersey Thanks for what you do!

Talib, frankly, should have refused a trade to any team. If he’d been released, a team like the Rams could have gotten him without giving up a fifth-round draft pick to Denver. This presumably would have made the Rams willing to give Talib even more than $11 million this year.

But Talib opted to accept a trade to the Rams. Which means he’ll see the team he didn’t want to play for twice this year. And that could get juicier only if the Raiders cut receiver Michael Crabtree and the 49ers bring him back. (That also would make for some interesting practice-field encounters between Crabtree and Sherman.)

Second, the Raiders don’t have a starting-caliber middle linebacker on the roster. NaVorro Bowman is a free agent, and neither Cory James nor Marquel Lee proved to be the answer last season.

Finally, Edmunds is only 19 years old, yet he registered 215 tackles, 32.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks over the last two seasons.

She stayed a few more weeks but, by Christmas, had moved back to Fort Worth, Texas, to attend classes. Manziel, having left Cleveland in disgrace, split his time living with her and at the Hotel ZaZa in Dallas. Although the two were on and off, Crowley said, [After] what happened in Avon, it was never the same after that .?.?. I had had enough.

In January 2016, she dumped Manziel. He cried, she recalled, but it was just fake crying . . . I was so used to seeing it all the time.

Manziel already had a turbulent rep. In 2012, as a college freshman, he was arrested after getting into a fight and giving police a fake ID. In 2013, he got in trouble for oversleeping while working at a kids’ football camp, then left early because of dehydration. A month later, he was clocked with a half-game suspension for an inadvertent violation of NCAA rules after reportedly being paid to sign autographs.

After meeting, he and Crowley were spotted at a Drake concert in Houston, a Red Sox game at Boston’s Fenway Park and the X Games in Austin, Texas.

The couple’s partying, according to Crowley, was pretty average for [our] age, she recalled of those early months. It wasn’t over-the-top crazy.

What was supposed to be a fun summer fling given that Manziel had decided to drop out Womens Yovani Gallardo Jersey of school and play for the Browns that fall quickly turned serious. In August, he asked Crowley to be his girlfriend.

The signing of LB Kareem Martin to a three-year, $15 million contract gives the Giants a player well-versed in the scheme new defensive coordinator James Bettcher will use. Martin played for the Cardinals the past three years when Bettcher ran the defense in Arizona.

Limited Womens Frank Gore Jersey With Bettch being the defensive coordinator, that played a big role in my decision, Martin said. After playing in that defense for the last four years, three with him being the D.C., I learned a lot and I was able to grow a lot. I wanted to continue that maturation in this defense under him, so that played a big role in my decision to come here.

Authentic Mens Alex English Jersey The Giants had some interest in punter Pat O’Donnell but he re-signed with the Bears.

Curtis Riley, a defensive back who spent the past two years as a reserve with the Titans, tweeted he is coming to the Giants. Riley, 25, is from White Plains and played at Fresno State. Undrafted, Riley has taken NFL snaps at both cornerback and safety.

DT Robert Thomas, an exclusive rights free agent, was re-signed. Thomas played in 23 games the past two seasons, with no starts.

That comes after New York finished a mediocre 21st in the NFL in pass defense. Johnson was a third-round pick out of Montana in 2012 and established himself as a solid starter in his second year in the NFL. His breakout season came in 2015, when he had a career-high seven interceptions. The Rams used the franchise tag on Johnson the last two offseasons. He posted a farewell to the Rams on his Instagram account Monday, signaling that he would be leaving the team with which he had spent his entire NFL career. ”

Bag has been secured for everyone going into the draft.

The Dolphins, however, have started the process of cleansing their roster of the huge contracts that limited their flexibility and wisely shifted their focus to remaking an offensive line that has lacked talent and availability for years.

The acquisitions of center Daniel Kilgore and guard Josh Sitton and release of center Mike Pouncey were critical moves that can help the Miami offense hit a new level in 2018. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill is returning, plus young tackles Laremy Tunsil and Ja’Wuan James will benefit from improved teammates and another year of growth. Sitton is a remarkable upgrade from veteran turnstile Jermon Bushrod, as the four-time Pro Bowler was ranked sixth by B/R NFL1000 scout Ethan Young compared to Bushrod’s 61st.patriots_017

However, Tebow has a ways to go before he makes it to the majors. The Eddie George Womens Jersey 30-year-old player finished last season with a .226 batting average, eight home runs and 52 RBI between Single-A Columbia and Port St. Lucie.

But this season Tebow is rumored to be starting at Double-A Binghamton and he could be promoted to the majors in the fall, depending on how he does.

We’re very pleased with his progress so far, Alderson said. He’s been super for us the first year-plus. He’s made progress on the field. He’s dedicated himself to improving.

Tebow once again reiterated that making the majors would be a dream come true, but that his ultimate goal is to try his best.

As an athlete, you always want to be the best you can, play at the highest level, win a championship, be the best, Tebow said. If the best that I can be is in the bigs, that would be awesome. I believe in myself, and so I want to strive for that. But if that doesn’t happen, then I won’t look back and regret playing baseball, because I’ve already enjoyed it.

He is willing to move to free safety and flank Landon Collins in order to save his value for the team. But the nickel back is too rich to keep for a new regime that’s reconstructing the defense, too.

He is too expensive for his return in production and will be cut.

Beyond Robinson, there are a bunch of deep threats and slot options in free agency. Anderson lessens the need for the former, and someone like the Dolphins’ Jarvis Landry is too much of a luxury target for the latter. In that vein, going bargain for the Chiefs’ Albert Wilson or going flyer on the Redskins’ Terrelle Pryor is smarter.

In the draft, the Jets Womens Marcus Gilchrist Jersey should look into the middle tier of prospects. Among the fits for the types they need include Florida State’s Auden Tate, Memphis’ Anthony Miller and Penn State’s DaeSean Hamilton.

Adam Shaheen, a second-year second-rounder, could turn into something special for Nagy and Trubisky in the Travis Kelce vein. But as the Ashland product has an expanded developmental season, the Bears need a pass-catching veteran for Trubisky now. Zach Miller is a 33-year-old free agent coming off a scary leg injury, and Dion Sims is a good candidate to be released.

The Bears were attached to the Bengals’ Tyler Eifert when he was a first-round pick in 2013. His durability issues are about to push him out of Cincinnati, but that could set him up for a low-risk, high-reward deal to be a potential red-zone target for Trubisky. Going a little younger out of a different West Coast offense, the Eagles’ Trey Burton, 26, should have great appeal.

Cam Atkinson Authentic Jersey The Bears got a strong all-around fourth season from Charles Leno Jr. at left tackle. Bobby Massie, however, continues to be a massive liability at right tackle.

This is a need the Bears can certainly address with a Day 2 pick in the draft, but should they go the free-agent route and choose not to spend as much at wideout or tight end, the Patriots’ Cameron Fleming and the Steelers’ Chris Hubbard are worth considering.

Mike Sullivan has led the Penguins to two straight Stanley Cups but was nowhere to be found in the top five coaches players would like to play for.

Getting the franchise tag is not what Bell wants. He’s made that perfectly clear over the past two years, and most recently he’s said that he would consider retirement if given the tag again. But it was a move that the Steelers had to make Josh Leivo Womens Jersey so that they don’t let arguably the NFL’s best running back walk away for nothing.

But it appears that he’s set on getting a long-term deal done before playing another down of football. He was willing to hold out last season until September, though he ended up playing on the one-year tag.

Interestingly enough, when the NHLPA held this players’ poll in 2012, then-Penguins coach Dan Bylsma won it with 21 percent of the vote, over this year’s winner, Joel Quenneville.

If the Pelicans let Cousins walk this offseason, they would have to rebuild around Davis to prove they aren’t going to waste his prime years. If they re-sign Cousins and he sees a dropoff in production, there’s still a possibility Davis considers his options outside of New Orleans in search of a realistic chance at competing for a title.

I don’t see anyone winning without three or four All-Stars, Davis told ESPN in December. I was in the (MVP) conversation in my third year, and we didn’t win. We went to the playoffs, got swept and I dropped out of all that so fast. It’s about winning. You can have all the numbers in the world, but you better win. That’s what it is.

In theory, at least, Thornton could be just a few days behind Shattenkirk for the same recovery timetable. Of course, we are cancelling out Thornton’s advanced age with the fact that he’s a freak of nature as an athlete.

Jimmy Butler ruled out Monday with knee injury

The Timberwolves will be without guards Jimmy Butler and Jamal Crawford on Monday when they travel to play the Clippers.

It brings some comfort to Cozart knowing that Simmons, the best defensive shortstop of his generation, is right by his side as a security blanket.

Myers hit a career-high 30 homers last year, but he also struck out 180 times and batted .229 after the All-Star break. He went home to Charlotte, North Carolina, in October, worked with a personal trainer, loaded up on protein shakes and increased his weight from 201 pounds to a bulked-up 226.

“I’m tired of being tall and skinny,” Myers said. “I wanted to be tall and big.”

Elfrid Payton led the Magic with 22 points and six rebounds. Evan Fournier added 19 points, and Aaron Gordon poured in 11 points with 13 rebounds. The Magic have now won two of their last three games (Celtics and Timberwolves) and lost by just one point to the Cavaliers in between.

While other losing teams like the Kings have essentially given up on the season, Orlando (14-32) has decided to fight despite owning the league’s third-worst record.

The Celtics, now losers of three straight, still hold a two-game lead over the Raptors for top seed in the Eastern Conference.

Pacers guard Victor Oladipo has played like an All-Star all season, and he continued his run of good form by scoring 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting, four rebounds and three steals in a 94-86 win over the Spurs. Oladipo, averaging over 24 points per game this season, has been a steal for the Pacers.

Lillard is currently averaging 25.0 points, four rebounds and six assists per game. He also has the Trail Blazers (23-21) in playoff contention.

This year’s All-Star Game takes place next month, and starters will be announced Thursday night. Coaches then select the reserves Tuesday. More disappointment could be ahead for Lillard, who currently ranks behind even Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball in the voting.indians_005

Eagles listening to Foles offers, but price remains high

The Philadelphia Eagles have received multiple trade offers for quarterback Nick Foles but are setting a high price, sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
Youth Ryan Ellis Premier White Reebok Jersey: NHL Nashville Predators #4 Away
The Eagles have plenty of incentive to keep Foles. Wentz is recovering from a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee that he suffered against the Los Angeles Rams in December. While optimistic that he will be back for the 2018 opener, the Eagles have no guarantee that Wentz will be ready for the start of the season. They believe strongly in having two strong starting options at quarterback — a philosophy that was bolstered by how the 2017 season played out.
Womens Roger Staubach Jersey
But they are leaving the window open a crack in the event that a team comes to the table with an excellent offer. The Eagles are projected to be about $9 million over the cap and are without a second- or third-round pick in April’s draft. Roseman has expressed the need to add picks T. J. Leaf Jersey so the team can offset some of the large contracts on the books with more players on rookie deals.

Womens Matthew Tkachuk Jersey Foles is entering the final year of his two-year contract and carries a cap hit of $7.6 million. Any team that acquires him — especially for the type of compensation the Eagles are talking about — will likely want assurances that he will sign an extension, adding to the complexity of a potential deal.

He has used a wheelchair but is making progress in his rehab. Shazier made an appearance at a Pittsburgh Penguins game in February and stood to acknowledge the cheers of the crowd. He says he is expecting to return to the NFL.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer remains in steady communication with Shazier, who was a first-round pick in 2014.

The Buckeyes have been honoring him with Buckeye Tough T-shirts that feature Shazier’s NFL No. 50 on the left arm and his Ohio State No. 10 on the right.

Jenkins, fresh off a Super Bowl-winning season with the Eagles, was a first-round pick in 2009 by the New Orleans Saints.

The two-time Pro Bowler won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back at Ohio State in 2008.

Jenkins, a leader of the NFL players coalition, is one of the most socially active players in the league, spearheading players’ efforts to improve the criminal justice system.

This is a week when every team except one plays either three (16 teams) or four (13 teams) games, with the Minnesota Timberwolves as the one team to play only twice.

Matchup ratings are based upon a scale from 1 (poor matchup) to 10 (excellent matchup). These are calculated using a formula that evaluates the team’s year-to-date and past 10 games’ statistics, their opponents’ numbers in those categories and their performance in home/road games depending on where the game is to be played. The column to the left lists the team’s total number of games scheduled, as well as home games, and lists the overall rating from 1-10 for that team’s weekly schedule.

As such, most of the teams have moderate scores between 4 and 7 on the Forecaster, with only seven teams outside of that range (three over 7, four under 4).

The Vikings are wise not to blow the franchise tag on Keenum, because that would give him more than $21 million in what’s essentially a prove it again deal. A better deal is making it work long term with Cousins for closer to $30 million per season. The Jets, Browns and Broncos are suitors for Cousins, too, but the Vikings have something beyond the financial means to offer.

Those teams need a lot of work before they can be considered playoff teams, let alone postseason powers. Minnesota is established and has three top targets — wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, tight end Kyle Rudolph — who match the profile of the skill players who have helped Cousins to his best NFL success. Second-year standout Dalvin Cook also gives Cousins the versatile feature back he’s never had.

Limited Shane Ray Jersey Jimmy’s like my brother now, Gibson said. I’ve been with Jimmy my whole career. Just as much as I’ve been with Thibs and Derrick [Rose], so first things first, I want him to make Joe Namath Womens Jersey the right decision, because I understand how serious an injury that is. But right now, my main frame is thinking: What if he doesn’t come back? I had my hopes up over the years [with other teammates], just got to stay focused and work with the people that’s in here right now and try to get everybody better, because you never know, anything can happen. The positive is Jimmy’s the type of guy that he’ll go out there and lay it on the line even if he’s still hurt. But we’ve still got to get everybody else ready just in case he doesn’t.

Safety was taken care of last year for the long haul with the early drafting of Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. Corner is a whole different mess.

The plan here starts with re-signing free agent Morris Claiborne, who’s still only 28 and coming off a solid first season in New York after his many years in Dallas. The trick is also upgrading on the opposite site.
