Ryan Shazier Jersey injury update: Steelers place LB on Reserve/PUP list

Ryan Shazier has officially been shut down for 2018.
Youth Patrick Beverley Swingman Green Nike Jersey: NBA Los Angeles Clippers #21 Salute to Service
In an anticipated move, the Steelers on Wednesday announced they have placed the linebacker on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List.

Authentic Womens Eric Decker Jersey Despite entering the free-agent signing period with roughly $73 million in salary-cap space, Indianapolis didn’t spend heavy on offensive skill-position players. The most costly additions were tight end Eric Ebron (two years, $15 million) and wide receiver Ryan Grant (one year, $5 million).

Ballard, though, believes the Colts already had talent on the roster and that new coach Frank Reich’s offensive system will lift players across the board. Indianapolis will be using a combination of a hurry-up offense with concepts Reich learned while serving as offensive coordinator for the Super Bowl-champion Eagles.

Everyone thinks you have to have dominant wideouts, Ballard said. It’s great if you do, but you can have dominant (running) backs and two tight ends that play and create some mismatches and problems for the defense. I think you’ll see Frank and Nick (Sirianni, the Colts’ new offensive coordinator) do a lot of that this year.

Austin Czarnik Game Jersey Jones started his NFL career with the Redskins as a third-round pick in 2015 out of Florida. He spent two seasons with Washington before suffering a knee injury and was unable to win back his starting spot. In seven starts and 20 games with the Redskins, Jones had 950 rushing yards with six touchdowns in addition to 377 receiving yards on 27 catches.

Blount was reunited with Matt Patricia for what the running back hopes Authentic Cameron Brate Jersey will be some heavy power and red-zone work in the Lions’ offense. But Johnson is bound to fight for key touches early while he pushes the disappointing Abdullah off the roster.

Packers No. 3 wide receiver: J’Mon Moore vs. Equanimeous St. Brown vs. Geronimo Allison vs. DeAngelo Yancey vs. Marquez Valdes-Scantiling
Projected winner: St. Brown

Although fellow rookies Moore and Valdes-Scantling will push him most, St. Brown, who was a playmaker at Notre Dame, can emerge in training camp as the best option after Davante Adams and Randall Cobb to help replace Jordy Nelson.

Browns’ Jarvis Landry thinks he’s best wide receiver in NFL

Jarvis Landry was not happy about being No. 52 on NFL Network’s Top 100 list, which is chosen by the players. He thinks he’s far better, especially at his position.

“I consider myself the best,” the Browns wide receiver told reporters Wednesday, via the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “I consider myself the most complete receiver.”

Landry led the NFL with 112 receptions in 2017 and has averaged 100 catches per year since coming into the NFL in 2014, despite catching passes from a slew of different quarterbacks with the Dolphins.

The good thing for Landry is it doesn’t matter where he stands on the Top 100 list. The Browns valued him highly which is why they signed him to a five-year, $75 million deal this offseason.

Here’s why. First off, to create the list, we started with more than 600 of the biggest names in sports, drawn from 68 countries, then had ESPN’s director of analytics, Ben Alamar, rank them based on a formula that took into account three fame factors: endorsement dollars; Google Trend score, which measures how often a name is searched, using Cristiano Ronaldo’s score of 100 as a baseline (the higher the better); and social media following. (Since not all athletes are on every platform, we used only the number from their most popular account.)

Remember, this is a global ranking of fame. While hockey is an international sport, other sports have a much larger worldwide footprint. Thus, the most players on the World Fame 100 — including No. 1 Ronaldo — come from soccer, the biggest game in the world. Even though the NHL is the most popular league in Canada, that country’s population is minuscule compared with, say, India (more than 1.3 billion) — which helps explain why 10 cricket players from the Indian Premier League, which has a viewership of 316 million, made the top 100, while no NHL or Major League Baseball players did.ravens_128

Devils sign Russian defenseman Egor Yakovlev Jersey

The New Jersey Devils have signed Russian defenseman Egor Yakovlev to a one-year, entry-level contract.
Men's Authentic Majestic Darwin Barney Green Jersey - #20 MLB Texas Rangers Salute To Service
General manager Ray Shero announced the move Monday.

Yakovlev has spent the past six seasons in the KHL with SKA St. Petersburg and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. He had five goals and four assists in 35 games this past season with St. Petersburg.

But Morris made a long 3-pointer to stop the scoring drought, and soon hit another to cap an 8-2 run that made it a double-digit lead.

Teams that win Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven series win 83 percent of the time. … James had 16 points, four rebounds and three assists at the half. Tatum had 13 points, and Horford had 10 points and seven boards at the break. … Baynes made his first start of the series, subbing for Morris. … It took until midway through the third quarter for a Cavs starter other than James or Love to make a basket. J.R. Smith sank a floater to make it 63-50, and George Hill followed with a jumper of his own. … The Peter Forsberg Jersey Celtics were 10-0 in the playoffs at home in 1986.

Alex Tuch also scored for the Knights. They lost Game 1 in Winnipeg before winning four straight to become the first expansion team since the 1968 St. Louis Blues — when the six initial expansion teams were put alone in the West — to get to the final.

Elite Mens Carl Soderberg Jersey It was their time, Winnipeg captain Blake Wheeler said. They’re just playing really well.

Vegas will meet Tampa Bay or Washington in the final. Tampa Bay leads the Eastern final 3-2, with Game 6 set for Monday night in Washington.

Elite Mens Richard Dent Jersey The Knights, whose jaw-dropping inaugural 109-point campaign included a Pacific Division crown, swept Los Angeles in the first round, and knocked out San Jose in six games in the second.

All those records and everything, it doesn’t mean anything if you’re not the last team standing, Vegas center Jonathan Marchessault said. I think we have a lot of gas left.

Josh Morrissey scored for the Jets, and Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves.

Addison Russell Jersey stays focused as Machado rumors swirl

The Cubs could take their chances with a Manny Machado trade, but their shortstop is working on delivering a big bounce-back at the plate.
Limited Mitch Unrein Youth Olive Nike Jersey - #98 NFL Chicago Bears 2017 Salute to Service
St. Louis (26-20) didn’t lack for chances on Tuesday night, but simply couldn’t convert. The Cardinals actually outhit Kansas City (15-33) 11-10 but didn’t come up with any hits with men in scoring position. It was a reversal of form from their last four games, when they scored 29 runs.

Mitchell Marner Limited Jersey It was one of those days, St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. We had guys in scoring position and chances for the big hit, but we couldn’t get the big hit.

Wednesday’s game is the finale of a seven-game homestand in which the Cardinals are presently 3-3. After this one, they head out for a six-game road trip through the Central Division, playing three games each against Pittsburgh and Milwaukee.

Kids Jarome Iginla Jersey That formula netted them a 5-1 win Tuesday night over the St. Louis Cardinals as Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez went deep while Jason Hammel scattered nine hits but gave up just one run, that coming on a fluky double steal, as he won for the first time Jannik Hansen Authentic Jersey in six decisions.

Kansas City will try to replicate that performance in Wednesday’s series finale at Busch Stadium behind its best starter this year, right-hander Jake Junis (5-3, 3.51). He’s coming off a 5-2 win on Friday night over the New York Yankees in Kauffman Stadium.

Junis lasted 5 1/3 innings and 101 pitches in that game, permitting seven hits and two runs with a walk and three strikeouts. Both runs scored after he departed.

I gave up some end-of-the-bat stuff and some hits that you feel should be outs, Junis said to I was making the pitch I wanted to make and they just didn’t fall our way. Fortunately, they didn’t do much damage.

Jalen Ramsey Clowns Bills QB Josh Allen Jersey… Deletes Tweet

It’s only May… and Jalen Ramsey is already trying to get into Josh Allen’s head!
Adidas NHL Men's Dominic Moore Camo Authentic Jersey - #42 Montreal Canadiens Veterans Day Practice
The Jacksonville Jaguars star saw some video of the Buffalo Bills QB taking his first snaps during minicamp… and decided to weigh in Womens James Carpenter Jersey with some friendly trash talk.

That’s a pick waiting to happen, Ramsey posted in a response to the Buffalo Bills tweet.

Elite Womens Ben Bishop Jersey Two years ago, Brantley displayed the power and quickness to shoot gaps, blow up the run or pressure the quarterback. With a full offseason on tap, he’s a prime candidate to fill the vacant 3-technique defensive tackle position.

Based on what the Dallas Cowboys’ young cornerback group showed on the field in the previous year, Jourdan Lewis flashed the most as a breakout candidate for the upcoming season.

As a boundary defender, Lewis mirrored receivers and didn’t allow too many big plays or much cushion for yards after the catch. He may have surrendered some touchdowns along the way, but it’s part of the learning process as a first-year player.

The negotiation period would last 90 days, and Boulton would be required to report back to the city with progress every 30 days.

The move is one of several attempting to bring a variety of entertainment to the Jersey Shore casino town seemingly on the verge of a revival.
Dwayne Washington Elite Jersey
Two resorts, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Ocean Resort Casino, plan to open there this June.

The baseball stadium first opened as The Sandcastle in 1998 and cost around $15 million to build. It was home to the Atlantic City Surf, which played there through 2009 before folding due to poor attendance.

The empty, 5,500-seat stadium quickly declined, as weather and vandals took their toll. It was renovated and renamed Surf Stadium in 2012 and hosted a Little League tournament, but a professional team has yet to call the ballpark home.

Is Eagles’ Doug Pederson trying to reduce expectations for Carson Wentz?

The Eagles opened their rookie minicamp on Friday, but before his new players took the field, head coach Doug Pederson pumped the brakes on the comeback of starting quarterback Carson Wentz.

He’s not cleared, Pederson said. He’s not cleared to do anything.

Aaron Judge, who had crushed a three-run homer in the fifth, walked with the bases loaded in a full count against reliever Lou Trevino, scoring Andujar. That cut Oakland’s lead to 6-5.

But Gregorius, who won AL Player of the Month, remember, extended hit hitless streak to an astonishing 28 at-bats with a fly to right field too shallow to score Austin Romine from third base.

Then Giancarlo Stanton popped out to shallow center and the threat was dead.

Judge’s three-run blast in the fifth also gave the Yankees a bit of hope. Miguel Andujar reached via error to start the frame and Brett Gardner eventually walked. Then Judge cracked shot off A’s starter Kendall Graveman to the seats in right-center field, a no-doubter for his 10th homer of the season, tying him for the team lead with Gregorius.

Top prospect Gleyber Torres put the Yankees on the scoreboard with a solo shot in third inning, the third of his career.

Speaking recently on the NFL Network, Wentz said he plans on playing in Week 1, when the Eagles open their season at home against the Atlanta Falcons.

Gray, even with his personal catcher Austin Romine behind the plate, got thrashed. The right-hander, facing the team that traded him in July for the first time, gave up five runs, two home runs and walked a trio. His nine hits allowed were a season-high.

Gregorius went 0-for-4 and came up small in a huge moment.

David Robertson coughed up a three-run double to Marcus Semien to put the game out of reach for the Yankees and send fans out early to the parking lot.

Maybe the home run. Maybe the big inning, he said. I mean, that’s the golden question here, isn’t it.

But Pedrique was excited for his own team, too. colts_003

Philadelphia Eagles signing veteran RB Matt Jones Jersey

Matt Jones will join the Super Bowl champions.
Nike Men's Andy Lee Elite Red Home Jersey - Arizona Cardinals NFL #2 Vapor Untouchable
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the running back is signing with the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday.

The Miami Dolphins claimed quarterback Bryce Petty a day after he was waived by the New York Jets. With Miami’s move Friday, Petty joins veterans Brock Osweiler and David Fales in the competition for the Chris Baker Authentic Jersey backup job behind Ryan Tannehill.

Petty spent three seasons with New York after being selected in the fourth round of the 2015 draft. He played in 10 games for the Jets, throwing for 1,353 yards and four touchdowns with 10 interceptions, and went 1-6 as a starter.

… The Panthers announced that defensive backs coach Curtis Fuller resigned following an investigation into complaints of inappropriate conduct.

… The Bills hired Dan Morgan to take over as their player personnel director.

Elite Kids Kenny Clark Jersey It’s a sad reality of the football business. Players suffer season-ending injuries every summer, whether it be in OTAs, training camp or during the preseason. If you get to Week 1 without any significant losses, it is a major blessing. Some notable examples in the last few years:
Elite Kids Cameron Sutton Jersey
The most intriguing case will be Jadeveon Clowney. The Texans list him as a defensive end聽鈥?he’d surely seek that tag figure next year if his contract expires聽鈥?but Clowney frequently toggles to outside linebacker in a hybrid front. He only has 20 sacks in four seasons, but the 6-5, 270-pounder’s unique combination of skills聽鈥?he can rush the passer, set an edge and stop the run聽鈥?and potential to further improve could allow him to approach Miller money at a time when the salary cap continues to substantially expand.

He has vigorously challenged the test results through the arbitration process. The arbitrator’s Opinion is due on or before Wednesday, May 16. Upon having the opportunity to review the arbitrator’s opinion, we will explore what further options are needed.

Report: Chandler Catanzaro Jersey prefers being warm

Most reasonable people, given a choice between more money and less money, or good weather or bad weather, will choose the thing that offers more comfort.
Women's Tampa Bay Lightning #88 Andrei Vasilevskiy Adidas Ash Backer T-Shirt NHL Jersey
In some quarters, that is construed as a pejorative.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, former Jets kicker Chandler Catanzaro is apparently somehow soft because he preferred a warm-weather destination in free agency.

Catanzaro grew up in South Carolina, and spent his first three years playing in Arizona. Where it’s, you know, warm. This offseason, he signed with the Buccaneers, where he gets to enjoy pleasant weather and the absence of state income taxes. And also, not playing for the Jets.

Some commentators have said it was clear from the start that the commission would not address paying college athletes, as that was not its charge. However, Rice stated after the Chad Henne Womens Jersey recommendations were released that the commission could have addressed the issue if it had chosen to do so.

Limited Youth Mark Barberio Jersey Clearly the commission should have addressed players’ rights to monetize their name, image and likeness. The commission was making recommendations. There was no legitimate reason to punt on NIL issues.

The O’Bannon case provided the legal parameters necessary to make an informed judgment. Even if the commission were to recommend allowing NIL rights, that would not carry the day in pending litigation any more than my recommendation on a radio show would.

Oakland was the best opportunity. Jon Gruden was a big pull, Johnson said, via the San Jose Mercury News. Me coming here and visiting and talking to the coaching staff, it just went off well. Oakland had the best plan for me at my age that I’m at now.

Limited Youth Luc Robitaille Jersey Johnson didn’t disclose specifics of the plan the Raiders pitched to him, but he did say that he likes defensive coordinator Paul Guenther’s scheme because it is built for linebackers to make plays. In addition to Johnson, the Raiders brought in Tahir Whitehead, Emmanuel Lamur and Kyle Wilbur to make those plays and the coming months will determine how often each of them is on the field to make them.

There is already a group dedicated to examining rules involving transfers. Apparently that is not a deterrent to the commission rendering its judgment as it was in the case of name, image and likeness.

Tre'Davious White Men's Limited Red Jersey: Nike NFL Buffalo Bills Rush Vapor Untouchable #27
Perry signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on January 1, 2018. He has played in 17 career games with one start, making 17 tackles and nine special teams stops in his time with Indianapolis (2017) and the Chargers (2016).

Elite Youth Jean-Francois Jacques Jersey Perry spent time on the Colts鈥?active roster and practice squad in 2017 and played in two games.

I liked all of Reid’s tape, and he has really good range in coverage. With a really good combination of instincts, speed and athleticism, he’s your classic single-high free safety. Miller’s knee injuries might factor into him falling a bit on Day 2, but he’s one of the better route runners in this class. He loves doing the dirty work, and has really good instincts. He had 238 catches the past three seasons, so the production is there. Leonard is a small-school guy who showed up at the Senior Bowl and had a great week. He’s a perfect fit for today’s NFL, as a guy with average size (6-2, 234), but with 34.5-inch arms and who can run a 4.7. He dominated his level of competition and is a really good athlete.

He assisted Josh Gordon Joe Pavelski Womens Jersey in getting a second chance and most recently has worked with Antonio Callaway. Gordon and Callaway now are teammates in Cleveland after the Browns made Callaway a fourth-round pick.

It鈥檚 very ironic that Antonio and Josh Gordon ended up on the same team, Montgomery told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Now Josh Gordon gets the opportunity to play big brother and I think Josh is going to do a great job of that.
Darin Erstad Elite Jersey
Kiper: LSU’s D.J. Chark, who ran a 4.34 40 and had a 40-inch vertical jump at the combine. His tape is inconsistent overall, but he can run past most defensive backs. Expect him to be picked at the top of Round 2.

Kiper: My top-ranked wide receiver is Alabama’s Calvin Ridley, who is advanced as a route runner and is already 23. He can be a Week 1 starter, and his game (and size) reminds me some of Hall of Fame wideout Marvin Harrison.

Russell is in the conversation for biggest NFL Draft bust of all time primarily thanks to the hype he generated as a rare size-strength combo at quarterback.

Thanks in part to a training camp holdout that carried into the season, he started only one game during his rookie year with the Raiders. The team dumped him in 2010 after 25 starts in three seasons (a record of 7-18), and Russell never again saw the field in the NFL.

Leinart, a Heisman Trophy winner, was supposed to take over for Kurt Warner when the veteran QB was finished in Arizona. That remained the plan until 2010, when Leinart lost the job to Derek Anderson and was released. Leinard did start 17 games throughout his Cardinals tenure but managed just seven wins and 10 losses.

The Chargers’ defense is pushing to be the best in the NFL with this steal. Gus Bradley is quietly assembling Legion of Boom South in the secondary with James’ playmaking adding to Casey Hayward, Jason Verrett, Trevor Williams and Jahleel Addae behind Sacksonville West.

While some regression is likely coming, what he’s done so far is looking to be legit. His 7.0 K/BB ratio ranks 10th in the league and his 22.4 percent hard-contact rate is fifth. Not only that, but his 2.57 ERA is supported by a 2.29 FIP and 3.15 xFIP. The Braves rank fifth in runs scored and just added phenom Ronald Acuna to their lineup, so this isn’t exactly a favorable matchup. That said, with the way Pivetta is pitching I’m not sure it matters.

Chris Stratton (R), 28 percent, San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers: Stratton has been one of this season’s more pleasant surprises. He has yet to allow more than three runs in any start this season. In fact, he’s been particularly sharp over his last three outings, allowing just three runs on 10 hits with 17 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings. The lack of “strikeout stuff” limits the upside, but he’s a solid floor play against the Dodgers. He gets to pitch in one of the game’s most pitcher-friendly parks, and his effectiveness against lefties this season (.140/.231/.193) sets him up well against a Dodgers lineup that’s anchored by lefty swingers Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger.canucks_661
