Jameis Winston’s fifth-year option creates a dilemma for Bucs

It remains to be seen whether the looming suspension of Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston compels the team to release him. While that’s still an unlikely outcome (the NFL’s specific findings against Winston will become a major factor, along with the possibility of further unexpected developments), it’s safe to say that the suspension will become relevant to whether the Nike NFL Jerseys Bucs make Winston the first quarterback ever drafted by the team to get a second contract.

Which means that the Bucs could decide to move on from Winston after the 2018 season, especially if the Bucs move on from G.M. Jason Licht and/or coach Dirk Koetter. Indeed, a new regime would be untethered to Winston, and it would be much easier for someone with no ties to him to make a detached, unbiased decision about Winston’s future than Licht and Koetter.

In other words, if the NFL paints an ugly picture about Winston’s interactions with the Uber driver and/or if other unsavory witnesses have unflattering things to say about Winston, the ability to sidestep a $20.9 million gamble could be enough to get the Bucs to make a decision driven by principle, not by winning.

Montreal-based sports reporter Andy Mailly-Pressoir reported that Duvernay-Tardif (who grew up in Montreal) was rejected in his attempt to get M.D. on his jersey.

I want to put Duvernay-Tardif M.D. on my jersey, he said in February. I’ve already started a conversation with the league office and they say that anything is possible.

But apparently the league has decided against it. And that’s a shame. The NFL should celebrate players like Duvernay-Tardif, who exemplify the hard work and dedication that is central to the sport of football. The NFL allows players to put Jr. and Sr. and III on jerseys, and US Cheap Jerseys allowing the one player who has earned an M.D. to put it on his jersey as well would be a minor accommodation for a player who has achieved a great accomplishment.

Does the NFL have a referee problem?

Dak Prescott shocked the world by posting a 104.9 passer rating in absence of the injured Tony Romo.

In college, he played for Conference USA’s Charlotte 49ers, who were still scheduling games against Division III schools in 2014. Throughout Ogunjobi’s collegiate career, the 2016 Louisville Cardinals were Charlotte’s lone Power Five opponent that made a bowl.

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams may have wanted to give Ogunjobi Nike NFL Jerseys China time to adapt to the NFL as a rookie. But with Shelton gone, it’s time to find out how much he can handle.

Denver ranked among the NFL’s bottom five in offensive sack percentage last year, and first-round pick Garett Bolles was part of the issue.

Though Bolles only played one year of major college football and turned 25 in May of last year, the Broncos still selected him 20th overall in 2017. His rawnewss manifested itself on the field, as he struggled against elite speed-rushers like Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram.

What’s unknown at this point is if Torreyes is back to stay or just for a few days.

The Yankees currently are carrying 12 pitchers, but they’ll probably go back to 13 by next Friday when they plan to call up a starter from the minors to take Tanaka’s next turn in the rotation, so Torreyes could be farmed out again.

It’s also possible the Yankees will option rookie first baseman Tyler Austin, who is in a 2-for-27 slump with 16 strikeouts since May 21 and batting.218 for the season in 33 games (with eight homers and 33 RBIs).

The Giants led the NFL in dropped passes last season when Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard combined to miss 28 games. The offensive line also was one of the NFL’s worst.

End result: A 3-13 record.

I could bring up 25 throws last year where guys had it hitting them in the knees or he was hit as he throws, O’Hara said. Eli wears that record because you are a quarterback and that’s what happens, but he can play. I look forward to him having a great year. I think he will. I USA Basketball Cheap Jerseys don’t know what that looks like in wins and losses, but the Giants are going to be a totally different team.

The Yankees went down, 2-0, when Wilson Ramos singled to left field in the third inning to score Johnny Field.

The one-hopper to left fielder Giancarlo Stanton caromed off his glove and skipped a few feet in front of him. But Stanton recovered to end the inning by throwing out Matt Duffy at home.

Saturday: Yankees righty Luis Severino (9-2, 2.27 ERA) vs TBD Rays pitcher.

The rumors also have the Yankees possibly giving up their two rookie stars to get the National League ERA leader, third baseman Miguel Andujar and second baseman Gleyber Torres.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag, a Yankees Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap official doubts the Mets ever would trade deGrom to their crosstown rival while adding that any deal won’t include Andujar and/or Torres.

If Torres and Andujar are untouchable, the Yankees would have to try to US Cheap Jerseys Club build a deal around their stock farm system, but it’s believed the Mets are looking for Major League ready young talent.

Possible names to come up with trade talks include high A Tampa center fielder Estevan Florial and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre left-hander Justus Sheffield, the Yankees’ top two prospects.

I wanted to hit a homer off the first pitch. I started to get nervous, and I wanted to do more than what’s possible. I think that’s something you can’t control, though. In the World Series, all the noise, the motivation, the feelings you get on that field and the whole world is watching you. That got to me. When I went out to Game 1 in Cleveland, there was so much noise, I really felt smaller.

Paul Guenther: Khalil Mack has a lot of catching up to do

Paul Guenther took over as the Raiders defensive coordinator this offseason and he’s spent the last couple of months installing a new defense.

He’s installed most of a new defense, anyway. One big piece of the puzzle has been left untouched because Khalil Mack has not been in attendance at the team’s voluntary practices as he looks for a contract extension with the team.

As much as Guenther may be focused on the guys who have been there, Mack’s presence would be significant. Guenther called him the centerpiece of the defense when he got the job in January and it’s hard to imagine that view has changed over the last five months even if Mack hasn’t been around the building.

Here are Mara’s comments on other storylines with the Giants, including general manager Dave Gettleman’s cancer diagnosis:

On Gettleman’s spirits: He is such an upbeat guy. He has been downplaying everything. I think he has a great frame of mind to go and beat it. He is a very energetic guy, a very tough guy. If anybody can beat it, it’s going to be him.

On the day-to-day operations if Gettleman needs time off: The fortunate thing for us with the timing of it all is, if I can use a horse reference, the horse is pretty much in the barn at this point….. The ship is pretty steady right now.

What the statement didn’t say was anything about the President, the visit to the White House or the President’s assertion that the event was canceled because the team disagrees with his belief that that they proudly stand for the National Anthem. The Eagles, who didn’t have any players kneel during the playing of the song in the regular season or playoffs last year, also opted not to issue any official response to the White House’s Tuesday statement saying that they decided to abandon their fans.

Coach Doug Pederson had an opportunity to change that Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys when he met with the media on Wednesday morning and faced questions about the tumult. Pederson said that the Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys team’s true fans are beside them and that the team itself is united, but was otherwise uninterested in further discussion of the matter.

What you’ve seen and what you’ve heard is enough, Pederson said.

Mahomes, whom Kansas City traded up to select at No. 10 overall in the 2017 draft, provided enough head-turning plays in that game to fuel an offseason’s worth of hype for a Chiefs team that has shaken things up in search of a breakthrough.

The Vikings weren’t a playoff contender in Bridgewater’s first season, but they weren’t an easy out, either.

His rookie numbers were impressive considering he did it without the support of the league’s best running back, Adrian Peterson, who was injured. While Bridgewater has been successful, a nasty 2016 knee injury still has his career in question as he tries to revive it with the Jets.

A solid preseason convinced Raiders coaches that Carr was the Cheap Baseball Jerseys man for the job rather than veteran Matt Schaub, and the rookie started every game of his rookie season.

Marcus Mariota (started):

Tennessee selected the player Tampa passed on, which was fine with the Titans. The Heisman Trophy winner felt like a can’t-miss prospect. There wasn’t much question that he’d start over Zach Mettenberger.

Mariota was one of few bright spots in Tennessee’s 2015 season, which set up the Titans for the top overall pick in the 2016 draft (which they traded away). He took too many hits and missed four games with injuries that year, but the promise was (and still is) evident.

The Vikings rebooted after Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater all hit free agency. Cousins was a great get with a lot of competition from other suitors, but don’t forget about the trade for Siemian, which settles him into a comfortable role as a surefire No. 2. Sloter slides up for now but gets some small-school competition from Pujals.

Stafford has become an iron man with his golden arm, so the Lions don’t need to sweat too much. Cassel, because of recent starting work as a sub elsewhere, offers a little more confidence than Rudock can in leading the offense.

Winston fought pain to produce through a season in which Fitzpatrick proved why the Bucs have one of the league’s best seasoned backups. Griffin also keeps them deep through No. 3. It Cheap Bruins Jerseys will be tough for Allen, undrafted from Arkansas, to make the roster.

Philip Rivers would “vote” for Chargers to bring back Antonio Gates

The moment the Chargers lost tight end Hunter Henry for the season was the moment speculation began that the team might elect to bring back Antonio Gates for one more year.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is all for the move.

Virgil Green, Braedon Bowman and Sean Culkin are Cheap Authentic Baseball Jerseys among the tight ends already on the roster.

Johnson said he hopes the players will stand — no Jets took a knee last year — but that he never wants “to put restrictions on the speech of our players.” That stance was a topic of conversation when wide receiver Jermaine Kearse spoke to the media on Tuesday.

Kearse called the league’s policy “disappointing” while saying that it was “very gratifying” to hear Johnson’s response.

“I’m very appreciative of him,” Kearse said, via NorthJersey.com. “I think he kind of gets it. … He understands. I don’t know what other owners are doing with their teams, but he’s been actively involved, had multiple meetings. We’ve all been talking to him. So [we’re] just very appreciative of his support. He cares.”

BWB Asia won’t be LeVert’s only offseason work. After two full seasons in the league, it’s unclear whether LeVert will take part in Las Vegas Summer League again; but either way he’ll have a busy summer between his annual basketball camp back in Ohio after returning from India and honing his game.

And what part of the 23-year-old’s game is he most focused on? In Cheap Braves Jerseys keeping with his gymrat nature, he can’t pick just one.
