Tony Gonzalez played both basketball and football at the University of California, Lisk writes. He averaged over 6 points a game during three seasons of basketball and was an All-American in football. He will go down as the top tight end of all-time, making 14 Pro Bowls and having more receiving yards Danny Ainge Jersey than any other tight end in history.Early Bird Report: Why the Falcons have the NFL’s best group of pass-catchers

Today’s Early Bird Report includes why the Falcons have the league’s best group of pass-catchers as well as Tom Brady’s recent comments Womens Omer Asik Jersey on his future retirement plans.

Hunter was the Vikings’ third-round draft pick in 2015, and he got plenty of playing time in his first two seasons and made his presence felt, recording six sacks as a rookie and leading the team with 12.5 sacks in his second season.

But last year was Hunter’s first year as a starter, and he started all 16 games and both postseason games. He played 78 percent of the Vikings’ defensive snaps.

Extending Hunter, who had one year left on his rookie deal, was a top priority for the Vikings. The next priority is extending their other young pass rusher, Anthony Barr.

Beek, are any of the rookie free agents that we signed after the draft standing out? Of this group who are the players with the best chance of making this team? I see promise in a few of them, but I know how hard it will be selected to the 53-man roster. Do we have the next future Hall of Famer in this group?

Coby Fleener: Concussion symptoms still there, unfortunately


When the Saints released tight end Coby Harold Carmichael Authentic Jersey Fleener early in May, head coach Sean Payton said that Fleener was still dealing with symptoms from the concussion that ended his 2017 season and nothing has changed over the last month.
Adidas NHL Men's Jacques Plante Black Authentic Jersey - #1 Montreal Canadiens 1917-2017 100th Anniversary
Fleener spoke to Don Banks of The Athletic about where things stand and said that he’d still like to play during the 2018 season, but that the symptoms are still there, unfortunately. There’s no timetable for that to change and that leaves Fleener, who has been diagnosed with five concussions over the course of his career, unable to say he’ll be back on the field with confidence.

And they’ve gotten three recent reminders about the dangers of shelling out big-money extensions to players nearing or over 30 years old. If Kam Chancellor’s neck injury prevents him from continuing his career a legitimate fear then he, Bennett and Marshawn Lynch would have all been extended without playing a down for Seattle beyond the length of their previous deals. Seattle will eat more than $5 million in dead money in 2018, just as it did in 2016 after Lynch retired.

Former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has speculated that Green Bay could be a fit for Bryant, though Aaron Rodgers essentially shot down that idea. Earlier this week, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw out New Orleans as a possible landing spot for Bryant.

Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report said he continues to hear San Francisco could have interest in Bryant, but adding Authentic Jameer Nelson Jersey that’s far from certain.

The Cowboys released Bryant 68 days ago, and it appears he will remain unemployed for at least a while longer. Bryant, though, doesn’t think that’s a problem.

Jake Arrieta (R), 96 percent, Philadelphia Phillies vs. St. Louis Cardinals: Arrieta’s 1.69 ERA at home will convince many to roll with him, but have you noticed his first three June outings? That 7.98 ERA, 9:5 K:BB and.906 opponents’ OPS looks like the start of a harsh correction of his overachievement to start 2018. The Cardinals are getting Jose Martinez back in the fold this week, which deepens an erratic but often lethal order that should give Arrieta issues.

How Mariners’ Wade LeBlanc went from Yankees’ spring castoff to hot starter


Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia and pitching coach Larry Rothschild were having a chat in the bullpen early Tuesday afternoon when a familiar face walked in.
Adidas Torey Krug Authentic Women's Jersey - NHL Boston Bruins #47 Purple Fights Cancer Practice
We were just catching up, Seattle Mariners lefty Wade LeBlanc, who was with the Yankees in spring training, said the next day while relaxing at his locker in the visiting clubhouse at Yankee Stadium before the Yankees’ 7-5 walk-off win.

This was anything but a ‘Look at me now’ moment for LeBlanc, a seasoned but unpretentious vet who has risen from the ashes of a spring Thomas Steen Womens Jersey release – a release that he admits was deserved – to become one of baseball’s hottest starters.

My stuff probably is pretty easy to hit when hitters aren’t timed up for 95-mph fastballs, LeBlanc said.

LeBlanc, who had a cup of coffee with the 2014 Yankees, never made a push for a roster spot. In seven relief outings, he DeAndre Jordan Jersey ran up a 5.27 ERA over 13 2/3 innings of work, and by late March, his agent went to the Yankees about triggering his late-spring opt-out clause early.

To be clear, things were going just fine for Scherzer. At the time of the tweak, he was 8-1 with a 2.13 ERA and off to one of the best starts in a career that seems increasingly likely to gain enshrinement in the hallowed halls of Cooperstown. He had a 0.91 WHIP and was on pace to finish with more strikeouts than any pitcher in nearly 20 years.

From the outside looking in, it hardly seemed like a time to fiddle.

But Scherzer hadn’t been happy with his previous two outings. Facing the Los Angeles Dodgers in Washington, he fanned 13 in seven innings and allowed two runs but tied a season high by walking wait for it three batters. The following start at Miami, his final line showed more hits than innings pitched (gasp!), and he gave up four earned runs to force his ERA over 2.00 for the first time this season.

Let’s celebrate Bartolo Colon’s birthday with these awesome GIFs


Everyone’s favorite bundle of pitching fun turns 45 today.

Throughout the years, Bartolo Colon has transformed himself from legitimate Cy Young candidate to mascot for entertainment in MLB. The party train continues this year, as Colon is putting together another odd yet effective season with the Rangers.

A franchise stalwart, Pedroia, 34, is in his 13th season with the Red Sox. The 2008 AL MVP is sixth among all Red Sox hitters in doubles (394) and stolen bases (138) and eighth in hits (1,802) and total bases (2,646).

Pedroia is not in the lineup Friday, but Cora said he would be Friday or Saturday and will bat somewhere after first or second in the order. Cora says he plans to stay with Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi in the Nos. 1 and 2 spots in the lineup.

The jacket of the book features a photo of Johnson during his managerial tenure in New York with the Mets from 1984-1990. A large portion of his autobiography centers on his time in Queens, as does the podcast he recorded with Sporting News.

He recounts a difficult relationship with Mets GM Frank Cashen, the worst moment of his career when Dwight Gooden informed him in the spring of 1987 that he failed a drug test and was entering rehab and why he relished the anguish Red Sox manager John McNamara felt as the Mets rallied for their improbable Game 6 victory in the 1986 World Series.

It took twenty years, but I finally got my payback, Johnson recalled of an incident from his minor league days.

A self-described introvert, Johnson uses the book and subsequent interviews to set the record straight on several issues, including why he exited through the back door of a hotel after being informed by Cashen he was being relieved of his managerial duties early in the 1990 season, and what went down in his acrimonious departure from Angelos’ Orioles.

Ryan Grigson to serve as consultant for Seahawks


Former Indianapolis Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson is going to serve as a consultant in his new role with the Seattle Seahawks, a team spokesman confirmed on Wednesday.
Nike Women's Gerald Everett Ash Backer - Los Angeles Rams NFL #81 Pullover Hoodie
Grigson’s addition helps the Seahawks front office cover the recent departures of Dan Morgan and Jim Nagy from their personnel department. Morgan left Seattle to become the Director of Player Personnel for the Buffalo Bills in May. Nagy recently left to take over for Phil Savage as the executive director of the Senior Bowl.

Grigson spent five years as the G.M. of the Colts before being fired following the 2016 season. He spent last year as a senior personnel executive with the Cleveland Browns.

The president has made his position crystal clear on this topic. He feels strongly that standing for our national anthem is something that we should do, something that matters to what makes our country special and unique and what sets us apart, she said.

Given Jon Gruden’s professed love of Hackenberg when he was coming out of Penn State, Hackenberg must have looked bad during his brief stint in Oakland not to even get a chance to prove himself as a camp arm. NFL teams may have simply concluded that Hackenberg simply lacks the ability to become even a reliable NFL backup, let alone the starter the Jets hoped he’d be when they drafted him.

At age 23 and just two years after he Deone Bucannon Jersey was a second-round draft pick, Hackenberg might be done in the NFL.

Per CMT, the show — which has aired for 12 seasons — averaged 3.3 million weekly viewers last season.

Cheerleading is not just a September-to-February job. During the NFL off-season, when there were fewer practices and appearances, I got a paycheck [for an appearance] one time, not kidding, that was $12 and some odd cents. And I said, ‘Great, this will maybe Womens Blake Bortles Jersey buy me some Chipotle.’ 

Complaining isn’t an option.

Hint of movement on DH a blow for better baseball


On a scale of 1 to Kyle Schwarber, with Schwarber being the highest, how likely are we to see the National League adopting the designated hitter in the near future? Pick a number (or a name) and you’ll be right, because not even the people in charge know when or if that will happen.
Phillip Dorsett Navy Blue Jersey: Long Sleeve T-Shirt Backer #13 NFL New England Patriots Nike
Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred was of little help on the issue when it came up Thursday at a quarterly meeting of team owners in New York. Manfred, in his careful, lawyerly way, maybe/sort of/kind of opened the door to possible progress toward Authentic Deion Sanders Jersey adoption.

Braves: Julio Teheran. Atlanta’s staff is terrible at the plate (a collective.089/.102/.121 slash line); Teheran (3 for 17) is the best by default.

Cubs: Jon Lester. Yes, really. Lester has made himself into a decent hitter (for a pitcher). He leads Chicago’s staff with four hits and three RBIs and has even taken a turn as a pinch hitter.

The 32-year-old Davis is a long way from where he was when he cracked a league-leading 53 homers in 2013 and 47 home runs in 2015. Those numbers earned him a club-record seven-year, $161 million contract in 2016.

Since then, however, Davis has fallen on hard times, striking out an average of 207 times the past two seasons, and posting a dreadful -0.1 WAR last season.

Things have gotten so bad, a Baltimore bar is now offering free shots of Dr Pepper for every hit Davis collects.

But when LaLoosh Kris Versteeg Youth Jersey got the call to the majors, the big club had little use for a 30-something-year-old catcher with its Class A club. They wanted to give one of their young catching prospects from rookie-league Bluefield a bump up a level, so Davis was given the boot, an unceremonious end to a job very well done.

He considered quitting. After a night of soul-searching with a trusted friend in Durham, though, Davis kept pursuing the dream. As my manager once told me, ‘I get to come to the ballpark every day, and get paid to do it. Beats the hell out of working at Sears,’ Davis said.

Inspirational Father/Son Story Continues A Saints Family Tradition


Inspirational Father/Son Story Continues A Saints Family Tradition More The New Orleans Saints have one of the more interesting family traditions than perhaps any other team in the NFL. Pro Bowl running back Mark Ingram II’s story is pretty well known.

This is a tough one, because McCoy showed zero signs of decline last season. In fact, he was as good as ever, accounting for a third of the Bills ‘ offense during their surprise run to the playoffs. But McCoy is in a nearly impossible spot this season — a gifted playmaker trapped on an offense that may not give him the opportunity to make plays. Throw in his age (he turns 30 next month) and injury history, and this all points in the wrong direction. Put it this way: If Shady again finds his way over Authentic Corey Liuget Jersey 1,500 total yards, we will roll out the red carpet when we welcome him back to The Superstar Club in 2019. Hopefully, he doesn’t T.O. us.

While it is extremely difficult to express how devastating it is to lose Anne, our family remains so very grateful to have been blessed with such a wonderful human being, the statement said.

Anne touched Lorenzo Mauldin Jersey many lives as a daughter, sister, aunt, friend and coach. Anne was a person with strong faith, courageous spirit, a giving heart and love for everyone. We are so proud of her accomplishments as a women’s basketball player and coach, but even more proud of her character, integrity, humility and kindness.

Donovan was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 1995, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 1999 and the FIBA Hall of Fame in 2015.

A 6-foot-8 center, Donovan scored 1,000 points in a single season twice at Paramus Catholic, won four state titles and was the nation’s top recruit. She played at Old Dominion, winning a AIAW title as a freshman and leading ODU to the second-ever NCAA Women’s Final Four as a senior.

Donovan then played professionally overseas and also won two gold medals with Team USA at the 1984 and ’88 Olympic Games. Donovan coached the national team to gold in 2008 and also led the Seattle Storm to a WNBA crown in 2004.

MLB trade rumors: Ex-GM thinks Mets should hold fire sale


It might be time for the Mets to reconsider the short and long-term future.

With a team that entered play on June 5 with a 27-30 record, the outlook doesn’t look good for the rest of the season. Since jumping out of the gate with an outrageous 11-1 record, the Mets followed it up with an awful 16-29 stretch. There’s a bad baseball team playing in Queens right now.

That’s led to early trade speculation, but nothing on the full-scale rebuild that dealing, say, Jacob deGrom or Noah Syndergaard would generate.

Mets to deal Cabrera?

Is that likely to change in 2019 or 2020? If the front office doesn’t believe so, dangling stars for a potentially franchise-changing deal is smart business.

I don’t [think so], man, cause I get up from the bed sometimes in the morning, I’m just like, I shuffle across the ground cause I can’t bend my ankles, Johnson said. That was my problem when I played, just ankle’s always stuck or swelled up, I can’t flex them. If you can’t flex your ankles then you’re just running flat-footed all the time.

Johnson said he’s otherwise healthy and feels no effects from concussions, and he said he wouldn’t stop his sons from playing football. But as for him, he’s done.

Ever since Detroit Lions star Alex Karras and Green Bay Packers star Paul Hornung were suspended for placing bets on NFL games in 1963, the NFL has not dealt with a single public gambling controversy.

This is not a coincidence, either.

It’s kind of a slow period for football right now and we’re heading into the summer, and there’s not much to talk about unless somebody gets arrested or injured in the offseason or something happens on the Fourth of July. That’s usually the stories we get now until training camp. I don’t have anything to report at this point, but I’m sure there will be some unnamed sources close to me that have some sort of scoop along the way.

Longtime defensive coordinator Matt Patricia left to become head coach of the Lions.


Four key offensive players ( Danny Amendola, Nate Solder, Dion Lewis, and Cameron Fleming) left in free agency, and another ( Brandin Cooks ) was traded. On defense, the Patriots lost Butler and Johnson Bademosi.

Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski missed the beginning of OTAs and chose to get their usual treatments at a TB12 clinic instead.

I wish to congratulate all past, current, and future inductees. It is quite an honor to be part of such elite company. This honor is something that I will cherish forever.

It’s unclear if Owens is the first player to ever skip the ceremony — several players and contributors have been inducted posthumously before — but Pro Football Hall of Fame CEO David Baker called it an unprecedented decision.

Owens was snubbed multiple times by Hall of Fame voters, and tweeted about his frustration when he wasn’t selection in 2017.

When the Hall of Fame made its selections for the Class of 2018, and did the traditional knock on the hotel room doors of inductees, Owens wasn’t in attendance. Instead, he left to play in a basketball game in Los Angeles.

Owens is now more than Ray Allen Authentic Jersey seven years removed from his last NFL game, but he’s never too far from the spotlight and always makes things interesting. In May, he was announced as the cover athlete for Madden NFL 19: Hall of Fame Edition and has spent part of June lobbying for the 49ers to sign him for the veteran minimum.

The NFL’s competition committee rewrote the catch rule at commissioner Roger Goodell’s behest this offseason. Johnson was not involved in the discussion, though several other former players were dating back to Johnson’s final season of 2015.

Being a Dad. Lewis admits he wasn’t there for his kids during his decade in the NFL. Now he savors every second.

Still, it’s impossible to shake the nightmares of guys like Junior Seau and Dave Duerson. They, too, had families. They, too, suffered from brain trauma. They, too, had suicidal thoughts…and they acted on Womens Michael Wilhoite Jersey them.

The Astros have won five of six from the A’s this season, including two of three when the teams met in Oakland in May.


McCullers and Mengden went head-to-head in Houston in April, with the Astros rolling to an 11-0 victory.
Men's Anaheim Ducks #42 Josh Manson Adidas Green Authentic Salute To Service NHL Jersey
McCullers (7-3, 3.94) also pitched well, albeit without as much offensive support, when he beat the A’s 4-2 in Oakland in May.

The right-hander is 3-1 with a 3.66 ERA in six career starts against the A’s, although he hasn’t been nearly as good in Oakland (1-0, 6.75) as he’s been against the A’s at home.

OAKLAND, Calif. The Houston Astros will seek to continue their dominance over the Oakland Athletics Jonnu Smith Authentic Jersey when the contending clubs in the American League West open a three-game series on Tuesday night.

Lance McCullers, already 2-0 against the A’s this season, and Daniel Mengden, a Houston native who has struggled in his career against the Astros, are scheduled to get the call in the series curtain-raiser.

Recent statements from Dolphins owner Stephen Ross will likely help Kaepernick’s team, as he said Trump’s involvement with the kneeling movement affected how he interpreted the actions of select NFL players.

I think initially I totally supported the players in what they were doing, because it’s America – people should be able to really speak about their choices and show them [in] doing that, Ross told the New York Daily News in March. But I think when you change the message, about, is it support of our country or the military, it’s a different message. When that message changed, and everybody was interpreting it as Joey Bosa Youth Jersey that was the reason, then I was against the kneeling.

Ross added: [Trump’s] message became what kneeling was all about. From that standpoint, that’s the way the public is interpreting it. So I think that’s really incumbent upon us to adopt that, because that’s how I think the country is now interpreting the kneeling issue.
