A healthy offseason for WR Tyler Lockett is a good thing for the Seahawks.

The Buffalo Bills fired offensive coordinator Rick Dennison after the team finished 29th in offense this season. The team announced the move on Friday. Their running attack fell to sixth after leading the league the past two seasons.

Buffalos offense topped 300 yards just nine times in 17 games and scored only eight touchdowns in its final seven games. Dennisons play-calling was questioned after Buffalo scored just three points against Jacksonville in the franchises first playoff game in 18 years.

Dennison wasnt coach Sean McDermotts first choice for the job last offseason that was former San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy. But McCoy took the Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator job and was fired midseason.

McCoy is expected to be a candidate to join McDermotts staff in Buffalo.

Other possible candidates include former Seattles Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo, former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Rob Cudzinski. Mike Shula Lorenzo Carter Jersey , the former offensive coordinator in Carolina, previously worked with McDermott and Bills general manager Brandon Beane.

McDermott was non-committal when discussing potential coaching staff changes during the season-ending news conference on Tuesday. The coach said any decisions would be his, but Beane would be involved with coordinating possible coaching changes with roster moves this offseason.

Were building this thing together Jonathan Stewart Jersey , McDermott said then. We are aligned philosophically on how we believe it should look and how we believe the building process should basically take shape.

Dennison was criticized for giving quarterback Tyrod Taylor the option to pass on first-and-goal from the 1 instead of handing the ball off to star running back LeSean McCoy in the wild-card game against Jacksonville.

The play resulted in an offensive pass interference penalty on wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and the Bills settled for a field goal in the 10-3 loss.

Theres some calls we want back. Thats probably one of them, McDermott said after the game.

Before coming to Buffalo, Dennison was Denver Broncos offensive coordinator for two seasons. He was replaced in Denver by McCoy after coach Gary Kubiak retired.

Dennison was Kubiaks offensive coordinator in Houston from 2010-13 and had a previous stint as the Broncos offensive coordinator from 2006-08.

The decision to part ways with Dennison also raised questions about the future of Taylor Jerry Rice Jersey , who has one year left on his contract. Taylors production declined in his third year as a starter and he was benched in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman for a game at the Los Angeles Chargers in November.

The quarterback change backfired after Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half of a 54-24 loss.

Major League Baseball said Wednesday that Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader will be required to go through sensitivity training after years-old racist and homophobic tweets of his resurfaced during the All-Star Game. MLB announced the commissioners office would require Hader to participate in diversity and inclusion initiatives in addition to the sensitivity training. In a statement Ryan Smith Jersey , Brewers general manager David Stearns said the team will continue to work through the issue with Hader.

Several of Haders tweets from 2011 and 2012 came to light Tuesday night while Hader was pitching in the All-Star Game. Hader learned of the situation when he left the game. He apologized and took responsibility for the tweets, saying they did not reflect his values or the person he is now.

During last nights game we became aware of Mr. Haders unacceptable social media comments in years past and have since been in communication with the Brewers regarding our shared concerns, MLB said in a statement. After the game, Mr. Hader took the necessary step of expressing remorse for his highly offensive and hurtful language, which fails to represent the values of our game and our expectations for all those who are a part of it.

The 24-year-old Hader said he did not vividly remember the tweets.

Being 17 years old, you make stupid decisions and mistakes, Hader said Tuesday night. I was in high school. Were still learning who we are in high school. You live and you learn. This mistake wont happen again.

Stearns said the Brewers were in contact with Hader, who is fully aware of the severity of the situation related to his social media comments Christian Okoye Jersey , regardless of the timeline of his posts.

His comments are inexcusable, and he is taking full responsibility for the consequences of his actions, Stearns said. In no way do these sentiments reflect the views of the Brewers organization or our community.

Stearns said those who have come to know Hader believe the sentiments in the tweets do not represent his beliefs, calling him a good teammate and contributor to the Brewers in every way. Hader has a 1.50 ERA in 31 appearances and made the All-Star Game in just his second major league season.

Hader spoke with Brewers teammate Lorenzo Cain after the All-Star Game. Cain said he expects the team to accept Haders present-day statements and move on.

At the end of the day, youve got to give people a second chance, Cain said. Youve got to forgive people. For me, its over and done with. He said it. It got out there. Im moving on from it.

On Twitter Wednesday, Brewers All-Star Jesus Aguilar expressed his support for Hader in a couple of posts.

He made a mistake 7 years ago. He admitted Chris Carson Jersey , he apologized and most important: He learned from it, Aguilar tweeted. Regarding accusations of racism: Im Venezuelan and with the skin color that I have, can tell you that it is a lie. Obviously hes not racist. Hes a great player and a better person. Great teammate.

Hader, who grew up in Millersville, Maryland, outside the state capital of Annapolis, apologized when he spoke to reporters after the All-Star Game.

Theres no excuse for what was said, Hader said. Im deeply sorry for what Ive said and whats been going on.



Three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker will have surgery on his right ankle in the next few days Jordan Mills Jersey , and Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel said the Titans will decide if the veteran might be able to return later this season.

The Titans placed Walker on injured reserve Monday and signed tight end MyCole Pruitt off Houston's practice squad.

"Disappointing because he puts a lot into it," Vrabel said of Walker's injury. "He plays hard, been a productive player for us and somebody that I was excited to coach and be with. But hopefully, we'll see where he's at after surgery and re-evaluate his potential return."

Walker was hurt with 3:33 left in the Titans' 27-20 loss in Miami when Dolphins safety T.J. McDonald tackled him at the end of a 15-yard reception. Walker was carted off after having his right ankle wrapped in an air cast.

No tight end has had more catches than Walker's 356 receptions between 2013 and 2017. Walker, 34, signed an extension through 2020 in training camp . He was the Pro Bowl MVP in January and has been quarterback Marcus Mariota's favorite target the past three seasons.

The rest of the Titans' tight end group includes Jonnu Smith, a third-round pick out of Florida International in 2017, eight-year veteran Luke Stocker who has started 58 of his 84 career games Tavon Young Jersey , and Anthony Firkser who spent last season on Kansas City's practice squad.

Combined, the trio has 56 career receptions and will be replacing a veteran who led the Titans with 74 catches last season alone.

Vrabel, who spent the past four seasons as an assistant coach with Houston, saw the 6-foot-2, 245-pound Pruitt on the Texans' practice squad. Pruitt has 12 catches for 102 yards in stops with Minnesota and Chicago before arriving in Houston out of Southern Illinois.

"Being able to see him on the practice squad last year and see what he did in Houston in his time there practicing against us and some of the stuff that he did was excited to be able to get him and tell (general manager) Jon (Robinson) that this is somebody that we think can help us," Vrabel said.

BALTIMORE The Boston Red Sox will try to complete a three-game sweep of the slumping Baltimore Orioles when the two teams meet for a Wednesday matinee at Oriole Park.

Boston (46-22) won the first two games of this series Kenny Stills Jersey , including Tuesdays 6-4 victory. Chris Sale (5-4, 2.83 ERA) will pitch for Boston on Wednesday against Yefry Ramirez, who will make his major-league debut.

Sale has lost his last three starts. He pitched well against the White Sox on Friday in his last start, allowing one run on six hits in eight innings with 10 strikeouts but still took the loss as Chicago scored a 1-0 victory.

He has pitched effectively against the Orioles in his career Riley Reiff Jersey , going 5-2 with a 2.79 ERA in 15 games, including nine starts, and will try to give the Red Sox their ninth win in 10 games versus Baltimore this season.

The Orioles are struggling on offense right now, a big reason the team has lost six in a row and 13 of their last 15 games.

Ramirez will be called up from Triple-A Norfolk as the Orioles placed Andrew Cashner on the disabled list Tuesday due to a lower back strain. They also brought up relief pitcher Donnie Hart from Norfolk.

Cashner had been scheduled to start Wednesdays game but Ramirez instead will get his first chance to pitch in the majors.

The Red Sox also will have Mookie Betts in the lineup. Betts had been out since May 26 with a left abdominal strain before being surprisingly activated before Mondays 2-0 victory.

He went 1-for-5 and manager Alex Cora took him out after the top of the 11th inning so Betts would not be pushed too much on his first day back.

Betts did not play in Tuesdays win Adam Humphries Jersey , but he and Cora said it was more just to ease him back in slowly.

He was going to play two out of three anyway, Cora said before Tuesdays game. Yesterday we extended him a little bit. Hell start tomorrow.

Betts also leads the major league All-Star Game voting as the Red Sox likely will have a few players on the American League team.

The Orioles best chance for that game will be Manny Machado, who returned to the Baltimore lineup Tuesday after missing a game due to an illness.

Baltimore ran into the same problems Tuesday that have plagued its lineup all season an inability to score without homers and not being able to get the big hit at the right time.

The Orioles went just 2-for-13 with runners in scoring position and stranded 13 baserunners overall. There were just too many missed chances once again.

Baltimore has just a .227 team batting average after the Tuesday loss and it wont get any easier in the series finale with Sale starting and the solid bullpen waiting behind him.

Youve got a guy like Sale starting tomorrow, Orioles manager Buck Showalter told the media afterward. They feel pretty confident about their bullpen. Theyve got eight of them down there.

Game One of the Stanley Cup Final had a little bit of everything. And it had a lot of Mark Davis.

The Raiders owner took his trademark hairstyle to rink side in Las Vegas for the first game of the best-of-seven series that will determine the champions of hockey and the new custodians of the Stanley Cup. And Davis isnt a Johnny-Come-Lately; he attended the teams regular-season home opener Willie Snead IV Jersey , and he has supported the franchise throughout its inaugural season.

Davis will soon be taking his own team to Las Vegas, and he has to be inspired by the support that the hockey team enjoys, with a standing-room-only crowd in the arena and thousands more outside. If the folks in Vegas will do that for a brand-new hockey team, theyll likely do the same for one of the most iconic brands in football.

For a city that was excluded from big-time sports for decades due to gambling Denzel Perryman Jersey , the emergence of the Golden Knights combined with the looming arrival of the Raiders and the likely installation of Vegas as a key component of the Super Bowl rotation will make Vegas a major player in the American sports landscape, surely inviting speculation that an MLB and/or NBA team eventually could end up there.

LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles Dodgers are hoping that a well-rested and inspired rookie pitcher will lead them to success in Sundays series finale against the San Francisco Giants.

Left-hander Caleb Ferguson will make his third career start Steven Nelson Jersey , pitching opposite Giants right-hander Chris Stratton, but it will be his first outing where he will get a minute to catch his breath and ease into his surroundings.

Before his major league debut on June 6, and his follow-up effort Tuesday, Ferguson had to scramble to catch a flight and then take the mound for the Dodgers. This time around, Ferguson has done all of his between-start routine with the major league club, and even got a bonus assignment this week.

Ferguson was able to get an up-close-and-personal look at Clayton Kershaws most recent rehab bullpen session. It was a multi-pronged effort to not only let Ferguson watch a pitcher he looks up to, but to get an in-depth view at one of the hardest workers in the game.

Even for Caleb to sit in on Claytons pen (Friday) and to sit in on Rich (Hills on Saturday) and not have to fly in make a start then fly out and come back in, he will get to assimilate with our guys, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. I think there is a benefit to that.

Ferguson (0-0, 9.53) lasted just 1 2/3 innings of his debut at Pittsburgh and then went four innings Tuesday against the Rangers. He has given up a combined six runs, but the Dodgers offense has scored a combined 21 runs in his two outings so at least he is getting elite run support.

Stratton (7-4 Randall Cobb Jersey , 4.56) has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last four starts, but he is facing a Dodgers lineup that has hit 34 home runs in June alone. The right-hander will have to face a trio of left-handed hitters in Max Muncy, Cody Bellinger and Joc Pederson who have been productive of late.

He figures to be up for the challenge after guiding the Giants to a 10-4 record in his starts this season. In his outing Tuesday at Miami, Stratton was just the second Giants pitcher since May 6 to last at least seven innings, but he still took the loss in a 3-1 defeat. It was his sixth quality start of the season.

The Giants are currently 3-6 on a three-city road trip that ends Sunday. And while a return home is ahead, better health could be coming soon, although third baseman Evan Longoria figures to be out at least a month with a fractured left hand.

First baseman Brandon Belt was activated Saturday, while pitchers Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija could be back soon.

Our biggest issue has been trying to stay healthy, manager Bruce Bochy said, according to mlb.com.

Madison Bumgarner made his third start since coming off the disabled list Saturday and allowed three runs on five hits in six innings of a 3-1 loss. It marked the 11th straight time in Los Angeles the Giants scored two runs or less, according to STATS Inc.

Matt Kemp and Enrique Hernandez homered for the Dodgers who will go for the series sweep on Sunday while Alex Wood allowed a run on four hits in 5 2/3 innings.

The Minnesota Twins signed first-round draft pick Trevor Larnach just one day before Major League Baseballs deadline. For both sides Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey , the delay was well worth the wait. There were no contentious contract negotiations in the way, only a College World Series championship for Larnach with Oregon State.

We figured it would go to the end, because I thought Oregon State was the best team I saw all spring, Twins scouting director Sean Johnson said. They were really built to win that series, so we knew it would take a while.

Larnachs standard minor league deal, signed on Thursday afternoon, came with a $2.55 million signing bonus. The slot value set by MLB for the 20th overall selection was $3.12 million, so the Twins put some of that savings toward signing other players in their draft class.

Larnach, a corner outfielder who hit .327 with 17 home runs and 65 RBIs this season for the Beavers, batted .417 with five doubles, nine RBIs and 10 runs scored in eight games at the College World Series. His two-run homer in the ninth inning against Arkansas helped Oregon State stave off elimination in the second game of the finals Doug Flutie Jersey , and the Beavers went on to win the decisive third game the following night.

I would say its probably the closest thing you are going to get to playing here in the big leagues, Larnach said as he toured Target Field for the first time before the Twins played Baltimore on Thursday night. There are a lot of people at every game. You start playing some SEC teams, and you start hearing them pretty well. Its all part of it. Its a wonderful experience, and I wish I could re-live some of it, but you know there are better times ahead.

The Twins said the 21-year-old Larnach will report to rookie-level Elizabethton of the Appalachian League.

Its good to have him in the fold, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. I told him to enjoy the experience. I couldnt really relate to him what it was like to sign at this particular point in my life because it was 40-some years ago, but it was nice for him and his parents to come in and have a chance to talk with them.

Johnson was on a scouting trip in North Carolina, dining at The Cheesecake Factory restaurant with Twins vice president of player personnel Mike Radcliff, when they saw Larnachs dramatic home run. They werent exactly sweating the timing of the signing.

Twenty seconds before he hit the home run, Im like, `If he hits a home run here to give them the lead Raekwon McMillan Jersey , we can wait another day, Johnson recalled. Right on cue, he hit it. That was the first time I celebrated in a Cheesecake Factory. That was pretty cool. That was a fun moment to watch.

For Larnach, too, of course.

My experience at Oregon State, man, its pretty unbelievable. I cant put that into words, he said. I cant thank my family at Oregon State enough for what theyve done for me. Im always going to come back to them and say hi and give them my love and just give back to them as much as I can, because theyve developed me not only as ballplayer but as a person, and thats what they promised when I got there.

GLENDALE B.J. Goodson Jersey , Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals have one of the best wide receivers to play the game but, beyond Larry Fitzgerald, the position is a major question mark for the team under first-year coach Steve Wilks.

The names of those competing for playing time and/or just a spot on the 53-man roster are hardly that familiar: Brice Butler, J.J. Nelson, Chad Williams, Greg Little, Christian Kirk and Trent Sherfield, among others.

Underrated is a good word to describe the group, the coach said.

I think thats exactly the point, just because (of) the perception that theres not any big-time there that we dont have good players, Wilks said after the Cardinals sweated through an outdoor practice Friday.

The receivers on the roster Reggie Ragland Jersey , he said, are better than outsiders might think.

Fitzgerald had another banner season a year ago, finishing second in the league and tying a franchise record with 109 receptions for 1,156 yards as he climbed to No. 3 on the NFL lists for career receptions and yards receiving. At 34, he was the oldest player in league history to catch at least 100 passes in a season.

But nobody else caught more than 33 for the 2017 Cardinals and no other wide receiver more than 31. Add the departure of the Browns Jaron and John (no relation) via free agency and there wasnt a lot left at the position when Wilks and new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy took over.

Nelson and Williams are holdovers, Butler signed as a free agent, Little hasnt played in an NFL game since 2015 and Kirk was Arizonas second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M. Sherfield is an undrafted rookie from Vanderbilt who has shown promise early in camp.

Like his coach, Butler believes the group is far better than people realize.

Theres not a lot of household names, you can say that, he said, but weve got big talent in the room.

Butler caught 15 passes for a career-best 317 yards and three touchdowns for the Dallas Cowboys last season and sees the current situation as a big opportunity.

Ive just got to do what Ive got to do Ty Montgomery Jersey , man, he said. Its training camp. Its about doing the grind day in and day out.

Nelson might be the biggest big-play threat in the group. Exceedingly fast, his 509 yards receiving (on 29 catches) were second on the team a year ago.

He can take the top off, as you guys have seen the last couple of days, Wilks said.

But Nelsons career has been plagued by inconsistency.

Williams has been working with the first team often as he enters his second year following a difficult rookie season.

The former third-round pick out of Grambling State also has big-time speed but played in only six games as a rookie, catching three passes for 31 yards.

I feel like Im way more advanced than I was last year, way smarter, Williams said. Its an opportunity for me to really get it going.

The dynamic Kirk figures prominently in the Cardinals plans, both as a receiver and kick returner.

The one thing that I love about him is his motor, Wilks said. Of course hes a good player. Hes smart and all that stuff. Thats the reason why we drafted him, but a lot of times you really dont know what you get until they actually get here and they start going through their routine. This guy goes full speed on every play Kyler Fackrell Jersey , every play.

Little, who stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 220 pounds, has done some great things in a comeback attempt that Wilks said might be the players last chance after bouncing from team to team following a standout rookie season in 2011, when he caught 61 passes for 709 yards for Cincinnati.

Once you separate Larry, everything else is wide open, Wilks said. Everybodys fighting for that position. Those guys are really competing hard. Its going to be interesting to see how things shape out once preseason hits.

Its probably too soon to panic, but one of the Steelers young offensive stars has been dealing with a knee problem.

Via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com, Steelers wide receiver聽JuJu Smith-Schuster has been limited with what he called a frustrating knee injury. He said he expected to be fine by the start of training camp, however.

Just something thats been bothering me over time, Smith-Schuster said. Kind of just adds up and lets me know, Yo Cris Carter Jersey , I need to get it checked out. We got it checked out.

He wouldnt get into any detail about his condition, but admitted it was difficult not being fully involved. He hasnt done any team drills in OTAs or minicamp.

Once Im able to run out there and put on the pads and be with my guys, its like the whole game changes, he said. Its like I never left.

The 21-year-old was a revelation last year, the youngest player to ever total more than 1,000 yards (including 917 receiving yards) with eight touchdowns. and with Martavis Bryant traded to the Raiders this offseason, its that much more important to have him up and running.

The Atlanta Falcons have entered the free-agency period facing financial constraints made more difficult by the leagues soaring market for quarterbacks. The Falcons addressed a need on Wednesdays first day of free agency by signing offensive guard Brandon Fusco Larry Warford Jersey , who started 16 games for San Francisco last season, to a three-year deal.

Fusco, who began his career with the Vikings, could immediately start at right guard.

An offseason priority is reaching a new deal with quarterback Matt Ryan, the 2016 NFL MVP. Ryan can become a free agent following the upcoming final season on his six-year, $103.75 million contract.

General manager Thomas Dimitroff has expressed optimism about reaching a new deal with Ryan this offseason.

I think its not going to be that difficult of a negotiation, quite honestly, Dimitroff said after last season.

Now, however, the market has become more expensive.

Ryan is set to earn $19.25 million in 2018 Ronnie Stanley Jersey , and Drew Brees of the NFC South rival New Orleans Saints has just signed a new two-year deal reportedly worth $50 million . Meanwhile, Jimmy Garoppolo, who has played in only 23 games in his career, last month signed a five-year, $137.5 million deal with San Francisco.

Dimitroff said at the NFL draft combine on March 2 the Garoppolo contract, worth a record $27.5 million per year, complicates things.

I think a lot of quarterbacks are honed in on whats going on, Dimitroff said.

Though Ryan couldnt match his 2016 production and the Falcons offense struggled at times last season , the quarterback appears to be headed for a raise.

It would help the Falcons offseason efforts if Ryan, who turns 33 on May 17 Tim Williams Jersey , will agree to a deal that relieves salary cap pressure for 2018.

The teams available cap space was about $9 million after re-signing kicker Matt Bryant , offensive lineman Austin Pasztor and cornerbacks Leon McFadden and Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

Atlanta released defensive end Derrick Shelby and announced plans to release tight end Levine Toilolo in cost-cutting moves.

Also, the Falcons this week placed second-round tenders on safety Ricardo Allen and guard Ben Garland, who are restricted free agents.

There wasnt financial room to re-sign all the looming free agents especially with Ryans new deal looming.

Matt Ryans situation of course has some play in dictating where we are and how creative we are in free agency and re-signing some of our other players, Dimitroff said.

Anytime youre signing a top-tier quarterback youre going to be faced with complications. Thats just the way it is.

The teams defensive front took a hit on Wednesday, the first day of free agency, when starters Adrian Clayborn, who led the team with 9 sacks last season, and Dontari Poe became unrestricted free agents. Among other key players who became unrestricted free agents were fullback Derrick Coleman, wide receiver Taylor Gabriel Max Unger Jersey , linebacker Kemal Ishmael and defensive tackle Courtney Upshaw.

After signing Fusco, Atlantas needs in free agency and the NFL draft include defensive line and tight end.





Mike Pereira was once the best thing on NFL Network. In the early days of the league-owned cable channel, Pereira was the leagues head of officiating, and he made regular appearances to explain rules and calls. Pereira parlayed that role into a job as a full-time analyst on FOX, but now he has a beef with his former employer.

Pereira took to Twitter on Wednesday morning and said that NFL Network canceled his planned appearance for reasons he couldnt understand. As a result, he missed an opportunity to promote Battlefields to Ballfields, the foundation he started that helps military veterans get jobs as sports officials.

For those of you I told I was going to be on NFLN this morning, including you Veterans in Rochester, my appearance was cancelled because NFLN was hesitant to talk about the rules of the game at this point. Really? Thought I was going to talk about our Veteran鈥檚 Foundation, Pereira wrote.

For those of you I told I was going to be on NFLN this morning James Harrison Jersey , including you Veterans in Rochester, my appearance twitter.com/i/web/status/1鈥?/p> Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) June 13, 2018

Its unclear why the NFLs own network is hesitant to discuss the rules of the game. The rules of the game are always among the biggest topics of discussion during the offseason, especially this year, with the revised catch rule and the new rule against initiating contact with the helmet. And Pereira is the best in the business at analyzing the rules of the game.

And for the NFLs own network to bypass an opportunity to promote a good cause like Pereiras foundation is just bizarre. NFL Network should explain itself.

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory Mark Bavaro Jersey , who was suspended all of last season over multiple violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy, was reinstated Tuesday. Gregory can join the Cowboys at training camp in California next week and will be eligible for games as long as he continues to meet the terms of his reinstatement, the league said. The team reports to Oxnard on July 24, two days before its first practice.

The NFL said Gregory was immediately eligible for meetings, conditioning work and "similar activities" and would be cleared for practices and games once "arrangements have been confirmed regarding Gregory's clinical resources in Dallas."

The 25-year-old Gregory last played in the 2016 regular-season finale, when the former Nebraska standout had his first career sack at the end of his second season. He was suspended before Dallas' playoff loss to Green Bay, his third suspension of the season.

Gregory slid to the Cowboys at the end of the second round in 2015 because of off-field concerns that included a positive test for marijuana at the NFL combine.

The Cowboys have backed Gregory's attempt to return to the field, with several teammates writing letters of recommendation to the NFL as part of the process of him applying for reinstatement.

Owner and general manager Jerry Jones, whose recent second-round gambles in the draft haven't paid off, has praised Gregory's character repeatedly during the pass rusher's absence.

Gregory was considered one of the best pass rushers in his draft, and there was promise early with a strong rookie training camp. Gregory vowed he wanted to make good on his word to Jones that he could control his issues with marijuana.

But he only made it through one season Solomon Thomas Jersey , and didn't have a sack while missing four games with an ankle injury.

The first suspension was announced in February 2016, and he was away from the team during training camp while in rehab. The second suspension came seven months later. Gregory remained with the team while serving the 14-game ban before playing in the final two games.

The yearlong suspension kept Gregory from participating in club activities and banned him from team facilities except for sessions with the person in charge of his treatment.

Right after Tommy La Stella struck out swinging for the final out, Jeremy Jeffress pounded his glove with his right hand and Erik Kratz pumped his right arm in jubilation. Forget about the wild-card standings. The Milwaukee Brewers are fighting for the NL Central title.

Lorenzo Cain had four hits, Mike Moustakas scored on Carl Edwards Jr.'s wild pitch in the sixth inning and the Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on Monday night to move within one game of the division leaders.

"That's a great team over there. They're not going to go away," Moustakas said. "They're not going to just give it up, so we've got to go out there every single day, keep fighting, keep grinding and go to win a ballgame each and every night."

Orlando Arcia and Jonathan Schoop each drove in a run as Milwaukee (83-62) won for the seventh time in eight games. It's the closest the Brewers have been to the division lead since they trailed the Cubs by a game on Aug. 5.

Milwaukee also battled Chicago for the NL Central title last season, but the Cubs pulled away down the stretch and the Brewers missed the playoffs. It looks as if the returning Brewers learned from what happened in 2017.

"I think being in the moment a year later helps these guys," manager Craig Counsell said. "You know how you feel because you feel different in these moments."

Wade Miley (4-2) pitched five effective innings before Corbin Burnes, Josh Hader and Jeffress closed it out for wild card-leading Milwaukee. Burnes worked a scoreless sixth George Fant Jersey , Hader struck out six straight batters and Jeffress got three outs for his 11th save.

Back home after a soggy weekend in Washington, Chicago (83-60) lost for the fifth time in seven games. Ben Zobrist had two of the Cubs' five hits, and Kris Bryant drove in a run.

"We've just not been making that kind of hard contact that we're capable of," manager Joe Maddon said. "So more than anything, that was tonight. You can dice it up any way you want, but just to score two runs again 鈥?we have to be more offensively."

The game was tied at 2 when Maddon and a trainer came out to check on Jon Lester after the left-hander retired the first two batters in the sixth. Lester (15-6) stayed in the game after a short conversation, and the Brewers pounced.

Moustakas singled and Kratz doubled to right, putting runners on second and third. Lester then departed with lower back tightness, and Moustakas scampered home when Edwards missed badly on his first pitch to Arcia .

Moustakas said third base coach Ed Sedar told him to be on the lookout for a wild pitch.

"It happened and I was able to get down there and ended up scoring," Moustakas said, "so it worked out pretty well for us."

Lester allowed eight hits Robbie Gould Jersey , struck out seven and walked two in his first loss since Aug. 11. The All-Star said he thinks his back will be fine.

"It's not anything painful, just kind of uncomfortable," he said. "After I got out of the game and came up here, I felt a lot better, and hopefully tomorrow will be the same."

WORK, WORK, WORK

Chicago is in the midst of 30 straight game days after Sunday's series finale at Washington was rained out and rescheduled for Thursday. But Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the East Coast and the Cubs sound as if they are hoping for another postponement.

"It's (Major League Baseball's) call on something like this," president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. "Our voices have certainly have been heard, but we don't have any control."

ALL IN GOOD FUN

Brewers bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel drew some boos and a few cheers from fans in the bleachers at Wrigley Field when he took off his warmup top before the game, revealing an Aaron Rodgers jersey. Rodgers directed the Green Bay Packers to a 24-23 comeback victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Cubs: OF Kyle Schwarber's back is bothering him "a little bit," according to Maddon. ... OF Jason Heyward (right hamstring tightness) ran on the field before the game. Asked if he will be able to play this month Anthony Barr Jersey , Heyward responded: "We'll see. I'm just saying 鈥?I'm going to do everything necessary, obviously, to be smart about it. But I plan on playing baseball." ... Chicago closer Brandon Morrow (right biceps inflammation) played catch. He likely will have another bullpen session in the next couple of days. ... LHP Drew Smyly, who had Tommy John surgery in July 2017, will not return this season. Smyly is fine, but Epstein said the team ran out of time to bring him back.

UP NEXT

Brewers right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (14-6, 3.59 ERA) and Cubs lefty Jose Quintana (12-9, 4.14 ERA) square off again Tuesday night. Quintana beat Chacin in their previous matchup, pitching two-run ball into the seventh inning of Chicago's 6-4 victory last Wednesday. Quintana is 5-2 with a 1.78 ERA in nine career starts against Milwaukee.

There will be a doctor in the house for Chiefs games this season and there will be one on the field when the teams offense has the ball.

Right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is graduating from McGill Universitys medical school on Tuesday DeForest Buckner Jersey , ending an eight-year process that hes completed while also starting 38 games for Kansas City over the last three seasons.

Duvernay-Tardif said he plans to do a residency in emergency medicine, but that football remains his main priority while the medical degree is a really strong Plan B for the time being. He also thanked Chiefs coach Andy Reid, whose mother also went to medical school at McGill, for giving him the space to pursue both interests simultaneously.

Not all the coaches saw my second career with that same optimism, Duvernay-Tardif said, via ESPN.com. Some coaches asked me, How do we really know you want to play football? Coach Reid never asked me that question. With him, its always been, We know you want to play football because youre here. He trusts me. Thats one thing I respect and admire about him. He told me that he was going to do anything he could to help me succeed. Its been four years now, and Coach Reid has stood by that plan. Every year when we end the season Kyler Fackrell Jersey , we have our exit meeting with coach Reid, and hes always asking me where I am in school and what the plan is for the offseason.

Duvernay-Tardif has said in the past that hed like to have M.D. on his jersey once he graduated and he posted a picture to social media that showed hes wearing a suit jacket with Dr. Duvernay-Tardif over his No. 76 for graduation day.

Continuity paid off for the Los Angeles Rams' offense last season, starting with the same offensive line combination that played together in all but one game. It certainly did for running back Todd Gurley, who signed a four-year, $60 million contract extension in July after running for 1,305 yards and scoring 19 total touchdowns last season behind that familiar front five.

"Whoever said money don't make you happy lied," Gurley said with a smile Wednesday.

The Rams expect even greater stability on offense to translate into continued success in head coach Sean McVay's second season, a belief that has been reinforced during the start of training camp.

At this same stage last year, the Rams were working in new additions at left tackle, center and wide receiver while learning the basics of a new offense Phillip Gaines Jersey , and were still weeks away from trading for wide receiver Sammy Watkins. They return 10 of 11 starters for this year's workouts at UC Irvine, with new acquisition Brandin Cooks replacing Watkins as the big play threat in the passing game.

Quarterback Jared Goff said the familiarity is paying dividends, especially during the transition from teaching the offense in the first few days to refining each element of a system that produced an NFL-leading 29.9 points per game.

"We feel like we're in a good spot," Goff said. "Offensively, we've been starting to click. I think today was the first day you really felt that consistency starting to gel. We're not so much installing anymore, we're running the same plays over and over again and starting to get a good feel with it."

"It makes everyone so much more comfortable just to come out here and just play our game. You don't have to think about too much, and that's what it is all about," Gurley said.

For Goff, his increased comfort level entering his second season as the starter manifests in a better understanding of what opposing defenses are trying to do.

"It just continues to slow down," Goff said. "Your pre-snap process is a lot smoother Tyreek Hill Jersey , and you're more under control of everything and are seeing things better."

While Goff is playing faster, there has been no deceleration by Gurley after signing a contract featuring the most guaranteed money for a running back in NFL history. Goff and McVay both praised his relentlessness in practice, with a prime example coming when Gurley kept running towards the end zone as McVay was setting up the next play in the sequence.

"I got what I want, now let's keep going," Gurley said. "Nothing doesn't stop. The grind continues. It's going to be even harder now, obviously, to be able to do what I did last year, and teams are going to game plan for it. It's my job to go out there, put myself in a great position and try to work as hard as I can. As long as I do that, I feel comfortable with the players around me and the coaches around me to put me in a great position."

With so much familiarity returning Mackensie Alexander Jersey , Gurley is ready to build on his best season to date. But he understands his individual production is the result of what the offense does together, declaring that every running back is the beneficiary of the blocking he gets before Gurley backtracked.

"Obviously, Barry Sanders is going to do what he do, but it doesn't matter what other running back you have back there. If you don't have all 11 doing one thing, then it's not going to work," he said.

NOTES: Outside linebacker Matt Longacre left practice early because of an undisclosed injury. . Kicker Greg Zuerlein made a 63-yard field goal during a simulated two-minute drill.

A woman frantically asks an emergency dispatcher to coach her on how to perform CPR during a 911 call as she and others desperately struggle in vain to save the life of Olympic skier Bode Millers daughter after the toddler fell into a swimming pool. Yes P. J. Williams Jersey , hurry. HURRY, the woman shouts at the beginning of the call released Tuesday.

Asked by a male dispatcher what the emergency is, she tells him a 19-month-old girl fell into a backyard pool, is not breathing and has no pulse.

We dont know, the woman, who sounds near tears, replies when asked how long the girl was in the water.

Are you doing CPR or do you need me to coach you through it?, he asks.

Coach me through it, please Archie Manning Jersey , she replies.

Neither her voice nor others heard on the call are identified.

I have a small pulse. I have a small pulse, a man says urgently at one point.

I need an oxygen machine here. Like now, he adds.

Ok. Theyre coming as fast as they can, the dispatcher replies as he continues to give instructions.

Come on, Emmy. Come on baby girl, the woman pleads.

As the minutes tick off, the man swears as he asks where the ambulance is.

Theyre on their way. Theyve been on their way for several minutes. Ok? Theyre just about there, they right there on the street, he says shortly before emergency sirens are heard.

Paramedics continued to try to revive the girl as they rushed her to the hospital Charles Woodson Jersey , said Capt. Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority, which released the 911 call.

There have been 13 drownings in Orange County so far this year, according to statistics released Tuesday by the agency. Three involved children under 5 while other victims were 15 or older.

The fire authority reposted its rules for staying safe in the water on its Facebook page Tuesday. Among them are always having adult supervision at pools where children are present, keeping pools behind a barricade that includes a locked gate and knowing CPR.

Miller, who lives in Coto de Caza, is the most decorated male U.S. skier with 33 World Cup wins, two overall titles, four world championships and six Olympic medals, including gold at the 2010 Vancouver Games in the super-combined. At the 2014 games in Sochi Sheldon Richardson Jersey , Russia, he was the oldest alpine skier at age 36 to win a medal.

It was at his fifth and final Olympics in Sochi that Miller was brought to tears as he reminisced about his younger brother, Chelone, a promising snowboarder who died at age 29 after a seizure the year before.

Since retiring from skiing hes worked as an NBC sports analyst. His wife, Morgan, is a professional volleyball player.

On Tuesday Miller posted a recent photograph of himself holding his blonde-haired daughter, along with the message, Thank you for all the love and support.

In a previous post he said, Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this Randall Cobb Jersey , adding that Emelines love and spirit would never be forgotten.

Miller and his wife have three older children.



Associated Press Writer Brian Melley contributed to this story.

Terrance West wont be part of the Saints plan to fill in for Mark Ingram during the first four games of the regular season.

According to multiple reports, the Saints are releasing West. West signed with the team in June after working out along with other veteran free agent backs.

West opened last season as the starter in Baltimore and ran for 80 yards in the opener, but slumped from there and then missed the final 11 games of the year after hurting his calf. West spent three years with the Ravens overall and had his most productive season in 2016 with 1,010 yards from scrimmage.

With West off the roster, the Saints will be choosing from Alvin Kamara, Shane Vereen, Jonathan Williams and Boston Scott as options while Ingram serves his four-game suspension.

For Braves manager Brian Snitker Chad Henne Jersey , playing the matchups meant pitching to Manny Machado with first base open and a marathon game on the line. The Orioles slugger made that strategy look foolish.

Machado hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the 15th inning, lifting Baltimore to a 10-7 win over Atlanta on Friday night after each team staged dramatic ninth-inning rallies.

The Braves surrendered six runs in the ninth, and then scored four times in the bottom of the inning.

Peter Moylan, Atlantas eighth pitcher, hit Craig Gentry to open the 15th. Gentry moved to second on Austin Wynns sacrifice.

With first base open, the Braves pitched to Machado and he responded with his 19th homer, a drive into the Orioles bullpen in left.

Snitker said the right-handed Moylan is tough on right-handed hitters but acknowledged you hate like hell (Machado) is one of them.

Machado said an intentional walk crossed my mind at first. I thought they were. In that situation they probably had faith in Moylan out there that he could get some ground balls to the left side of the infield.

Machado hit a 0-2 slider Moylan said was supposed to be middle in. Moylan said the pitch slipped out of my hand and ended up middle middle.

Moylan (0-1) gave up another run on singles by Colby Rasmus and Jonathan Schoop.

Mike Wright Jr. (1-0), Baltimores seventh pitcher, threw two scoreless innings.

The game lasted 5 hours Chris Conley Jersey , 21 minutes.

The Orioles trailed 3-1 heading into the ninth, and the Braves rallied against closer Zach Britton in the bottom of the inning. Braves closer Arodys Vizcaino was not used while Dan Winkler allowed four runs while recording only one out.

Snitker said he rested Vizcaino because of shoulder soreness and he might be available on Saturday.

Chris Davis hit a drought-breaking homer and drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly as Baltimore opened a 7-3 lead.

Britton got one out and was charged with four runs and five hits. He gave up a single to Johan Camargo and a double to Danny Santana before hitting Ender Inciarte to load the bases.

Ozzie Albies bases-loaded single drove in Camargo. Freddie Freemans two-run single cut the lead to one before Nick Markakis tied the game with a double to right field.

Atlanta had jumped in front on Charlie Culbersons tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth.

Davis, making his first start since June 11, hit his first homer since May 9 in the fifth. Camargo tied the game with his run-scoring double in the seventh.

Braves left-hander Sean Newcomb allowed five hits in seven innings.

Orioles right-hander Alex Cobb permitted four hits in seven innings

The start of the game was delayed 11 minutes by rain.

TRAINERS ROOM

Orioles: OF Trey Mancini (stiff neck) struck out as a pinch hitter in the eighth. He did not start for the second straight game. INF Tim Beckham (core muscle surgery) could return Monday. He has been out since April 25.

Braves: RHP Mike Soroka was placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Wednesday, with right shoulder inflammation. It is the rookies second DL stint with the shoulder issue. He missed 24 games from May 17 to June 13. He allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings and his velocity dropped in the Braves 11-4 win at Toronto on Tuesday. Santana was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett. RHP Mike Foltynewicz (right triceps tightness) threw on the side without problems and could come off the DL to start Monday against the Reds.

THROWBACK

As part of the teams celebration of Hank Aaron this week, the Braves wore 1974 throwback uniforms.

NO FIREWORKS

Fans booed after the Braves announced the length of the game forced the team to cancel the postgame fireworks show.

DRASTIC CHANGES

Davis was hitting only .150 when he was given 10 days to work on his swing with hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh and vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson. Davis, in the third season of a seven-year, $161 million contract Dion Jordan Jersey , described changes to his swing as drastic.

I think the break was obviously more just to give me an opportunity to sit down and try to make some of these adjustments and not have to go out and do it in the game, Davis said.

UP NEXT

Orioles: RHP Dylan Bundy (5-7, 3.81 ERA) is 5-2 with a 2.89 ERA in eight career interleague games, including seven starts. He will be making his first career appearance against Atlanta on Saturday.

Braves: RHP Julio Teheran (5-4, 3.97 ERA) will make his second career start against Baltimore.





FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman are healthy and practicing at full speed again this week but will be held out for the third straight preseason game when the Atlanta Falcons visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday.

Coach Dan Quinn said the team decided during the offseason not to play Jones, a two-time All-Pro receiver, and Freeman, a former Pro Bowl running back Chris Doleman Jersey , in exhibitions, so its likely neither will suit up until Atlanta opens the regular season Sept. 6 at Philadelphia.

Quinn cited the injury history of Jones and Freeman as the reason to keep both players out of preseason games. He indicated that he likely wont change his mind before the Falcons host Miami in the preseason finale Aug. 30.

Thats the plan that we kind of set out with, and Im staying true to that, Quinn said Tuesday. If there was something that I felt that they needed, then I would adjust that, but right now thats where Im headed.

Quinn added that hes not concerned that Jones and Freeman will face the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles without replicating game speed in preseason.

In those two instances, I think that is the case that we can, Quinn said. If I had concerns that we wouldnt be able to or I felt like it would be worth doing that, then I certainly I would.

Jones Montee Ball Jersey , who leads the NFL in yards receiving average since the Falcons drafted him sixth overall in 2011, started all 18 of Atlantas last season but didnt practice much because of a hip flexor, a back injury and an ankle injury. Hes also had surgery twice on his right foot.

Freeman, who has scored 37 touchdowns in four seasons while averaging 1,207 yards from scrimmage, was sidelined twice last year by a concussion and is coming off a minor knee injury that didnt require surgery.

Neither player has missed practice time since the team reported for training camp last month.

Matt Bryant, sidelined in preseason with an undisclosed injury, is expected to return to kicking on Wednesday. Its unclear if he will be ready to play at Jacksonville.

Linebacker Deion Jones is listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. Reserve guard Ben Garland will play dress against the Jaguars.

After months of questions about the health of his heart sent him tumbling down the draft board until being taken by the Oakland Raiders in the fifth round Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , Maurice Hurst was happy to get on the practice field and turn the conversation to football. Hurst took part in his first practice as a pro Friday when the Raiders opened their rookie minicamp with three promising pass rushers they hope can bolster their defense.

Just trying to get all of that stuff behind me, try to get people to stop talking about it, Hurst said. You know, some sort of issue or all of those kinds of things just try to move past that and focus on playing football and just having fun out there.

Hurst was one of the most productive defensive players in the country last season at Michigan. He had 5 sacks as an interior rusher and led all nose tackles and defensive tackles with 49 total quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus.

Hurst was sent home from the combine after a heart issue was detected. Hurst said it was something he has dealt with for a long time and hadnt impacted him on the field. He said he has been cleared by doctors at Harvard and Michigan but that didnt prevent every team passing on a player projected as a first-rounder until the Raiders got him at 140th overall.

Im not going to answer any more health questions on Hurst, coach Jon Gruden said. I realize there are a lot of ghost stories out there about unnamed sources that have their opinion on why we shouldnt have drafted him. This man played at Michigan. I know the head coach there. Theyve looked after him carefully. Were happy to have him in any round, and Im excited for him and Im really excited for him because hes an Oakland Raider and hes a great kid. I hope you just judge him on the field. Hes been cleared medically and Ill just leave it at that.

The additions of Hurst, second-round defensive tackle P.J. Hall and third-round defensive end Arden Key give the Raiders help on a defensive front that has ranked near the bottom of the NFL in sacks in recent years despite the presence of edge rushers Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin.

The Raiders have the second fewest sacks in the NFL the past two seasons with just 56 one more than the last-place New York Jets. Nearly two-thirds of those sacks have come from Mack (21 1/2) and Irvin (15), as the edge players have gotten almost no help from the inside rushers.

It was a major priority, Gruden said. Its a commodity thats hard to find. Ive heard a lot of critics have talked about the risk involved. There is risk involved with every pick.

While Hurst faced questions about his health, Hall and Key had other concerns.

Hall had 42 sacks and 86 1/2 tackles for loss in his college career, but that came at the FCS level for Sam Houston State instead of against top-flight competition.

Gruden called Hall and Hurst the top two interior rushers in the draft Justin Hardy Jersey , a position of major need after Oakland had just 1 1/2 sacks last year from players playing inside full-time.

Key proved himself at the highest level of college football for LSU in the SEC. He had 11 sacks in 2016 and 20 overall in three seasons in college, but he has had off-field problems and checked himself into rehab last spring.

If Oakland can get production out of those three players, that should go a long way in improving a defense that has been a weakness for the team in recent years.

We all work together, Key said. We have edge rushers that can get to the quarterback and the quarterback steps up. Inside guys get the sack. We have inside guys that get to the quarterback and make the quarterback roll out, the edge rushers get the sack. So we all work together.

NOTES: Fourth-round pick CB Nick Nelson sat out as he heals from a knee injury. The Raiders signed undrafted TE Marcus Baugh, WR Saeed Blacknall, LB Jason Cabinda, C Alex Officer, K Eddy Pineiro and FB Nick Sharga.





Several signings and one big trade drastically shifted the balance of power across the NHL in a matter of days.

With John Tavares going home to Toronto, Paul Stastny leaving Winnipeg for Vegas, St. Louis signing three free agents and trading for Ryan OReilly, the landscape of the league has changed. The Washington Capitals are bringing back a vast majority of their team Nico Siragusa Jersey , the Western Conference is loaded and yet the Maple Leafs now appear to be Stanley Cup favorites after adding Tavares.

Hes one of the best players in the league, Tampa Bay general manager Steve Yzerman said. And I think its obvious to say that Toronto is a better team today with that acquisition.

Tavares decision to leave the New York Islanders knocks them out of contender status and puts a whole lot of pressure on coach Mike Babcocks Maple Leafs to make a deep playoff run. Losing out on Tavares despite reportedly offering more money than the Maple Leafs $77 million over 11 years kept the Sharks from moving into front-runner status in the West but they may not be done yet.

We pride ourselves on being able to take a swing on difference makers like this, San Jose GM Doug Wilson said. John was the one that we wanted to swing at.

The Sharks, who extended Logan Couture and re-signed Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl to keep their core together, have plenty of tradable assets and will keep swinging for a difference-maker. One is off the market following the Blues trade for OReilly that now gives them a potent 1-2-3 punch down the middle with Brayden Schenn and free agent signing Tyler Bozak.

OReilly saw the Blues sign Bozak to a $15 million, three-year contract and wondered if there wasnt room for him anymore. Now they have centers to match up with just about any opponent in the league.

You look at all the teams that have success, they definitely have guys down the middle that compete, OReilly said Monday. And Im thrilled to be a part of that.

The Capitals boasted depth with Evgeny Kuznetsov, Nicklas Backstrom and Lars Eller during their Cup run, and Babcock can now roll out Tavares, Auston Matthews and Nazem Kadri. Vegas lost talent on the wing with David Perron going to St. Louis and James Neal signing with Calgary but now has a very competitive center corps led by Stastny, William Karlsson and Erik Haula.

We do like having centers Junior Seau Jersey , Golden Knights GM George McPhee said. You can move centers around the lineup, you can have centers on the wing. You cant get wingers to play center.

Heres a look at where a few more teams stand early in the preparations for the 2018-19 season:

GOT WHAT THEY NEED

LIGHTNING: Signing Tavares wouldve been a luxury and mightve necessitated a roster makeover just to fit him under the salary cap. Tampa Bay signed restricted free agent forward J.T. Miller to a long term deal, extended defenseman Ryan McDonagh, got a deal done with Slater Koekkoek and should have much of the same team that won the Atlantic Division last season.

We try to improve our team, Yzerman said. I dont sense that we have a need to change just to change.

FLAMES: Inking Neal to a $28.75 million, five-year contract would be a nice capper to the Flames offseason that began with acquiring center Elias Lindholm and defenseman Noah Hanifin from Carolina. New coach Bill Peters could put Neal or Lindholm on right wing with Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan.

GM Brad Trelivings final tasks this offseason are to find a backup goaltender to Mike Smith and sign restricted free agents Lindholm and Hanifin to new contracts.

KINGS: Long-term , signing franchise defenseman Drew Doughty to an $88 million, eight-year extension is the most important thing Los Angeles did. In the shorter term, it also won the competition for returning Russian winger Ilya Kovalchuk, who GM Rob Blake believes can play with either top-six center, Anze Kopitar or Jeff Carter, and produce at age 35.

That scoring-type winger was something that we needed to add Paul Hornung Jersey , Blake said. Where he plays on the power play and the way he scores goals with his shot I think is something weve coveted or looked for.

WORK LEFT TO DO

SENATORS: They traded Mike Hoffman, bought out Alexandre Burrows but still have at least one big problem with the future of Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Erik Karlsson. The Senators have reportedly given Karlssons camp permission to speak with other teams about a contract which is expected to look a whole lot like Doughtys deal which would open to door to Ottawa trading its captain rather than losing him for nothing like the Islanders did when Tavares wouldnt sign early.

We start Oct. 4, GM Pierre Dorion said Sunday in Ottawa. Weve got lots of time.

OILERS: Connor McDavid won the scoring title and the Ted Lindsay award as the players choice for most outstanding player, and yet Edmonton missed the playoffs by 17 points. GM Peter Chiarelli publicly dangled the 10th pick in the draft to try to get an offensive defenseman and hasnt been able to acquire one yet.

Meanwhile, left wing Milan Lucic is 30, coming off a 34-point dud of a season and still has five years left on his contract at a $6 million annual cap hit. Lucics name has come up in trade talks, but moving him now wont be easy, so the Oilers have to prepare for life with him next season.

Hes a proud guy and we expect to have him back and at a Authentic Womens Brian Allen Jersey

One of the biggest busts in recent draft history is getting another shot. In Cleveland.

Greg Robinson Garry Gilliam Jersey , the second overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, has signed with the Browns. To make room for Robinson on the 90-player roster, the Browns cut offensive tackle Rod Johnson, a 2017 fifth-round pick who spent his rookie year on injured reserve.

An offensive tackle from Auburn, Robinson was viewed as a big-time prospect when the Rams chose him in 2014. But although he was a starter for three years with the Rams, he never developed into the kind of player they hoped he would be.

A year ago the Rams traded Robinson to the Lions, who started him for six games early in the year but waived him midway through the season. He cleared waivers and hasnt been with an NFL team since.

Now Robinson will try to make the Browns roster. If he doesnt, his NFL career may be over.

The Minnesota Timberwolves used the draft to add a pair of players possessing the skills they want for the wing positions. Even if Josh Okogie and Keita Bates-Diop prove they are capable right away of a place in the rotation Bobby Hebert Jersey , though, there is a question about how much they will actually play as rookies. This is, after all, the team run by Tom Thibodeau, who is as likely to prefer experience over potential as any head coach in the NBA.

Practices are important. Playing time is based on performance. You earn that, Thibodeau said. Thats not just something that is given to you.

Okogie and Bates-Diop, during their introduction at a news conference Tuesday, sounded like they understand the climb they face. All five starters for the Wolves last season averaged 33 minutes per game or more and ranked among the top 36 most-used players in the league Melvin Gordon Jersey , with Jimmy Butler third and Andrew Wiggins ninth.

Everybody wants to play a lot as a rookie, but that comes with trust and learning the system and being productive out there, said Bates-Diop, the Big Ten Player of the Year award winner at Ohio State last season who dropped into Minnesotas lap with the 48th overall pick in the second round after most projections pegged him much higher on the board.

Okogie, who was selected 20th overall out of Georgia Tech, also expressed a willingness to accept the no-nonsense, tough-love supervision that comes with playing for Thibodeau.

Im definitely comfortable with it, Okogie said. Ive never really had a coach who wasnt hard on me.

Both players will go through an adjustment phase with their offensive game Keith Tandy Jersey , beginning with the longer 3-point shot. Bates-Diop led the Big Ten in scoring (19.8 points per game) and Okogie was fourth in the ACC (17.9 points per game), though, so theyre not coming to the league without any shooting prowess. Theyre not one-and-done prospects, either. Okogie will be 20 before the season starts, and Bates-Diop will turn 23 in January, just two months after Wolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns.

What will help them the most toward working their way onto the court is the athleticism, tenacity and versatility theyve exhibited while playing defense. Thats at the top of reasons Thibodeau and the front office targeted these two, enamored by a high leap and a long reach that makes switching from a 6-foot-4 classic shooting guard to a 6-foot-10 stretch power forward doable. Bates-Diop and Okogie were two of the four non-post players with a wingspan of 7 feet or more at the NBA scouting combine last month.

You can kind of be in two places at once Jerry Hughes Jersey , Okogie said.

The other factor in their favor? The roster. Butler and Wiggins dont currently have any backups in place, with Jamal Crawfords decision to opt out of his contract and become a free agent. Theres nobody else who played on the wing last season who is under contract entering the start of free agency this weekend.

So just how important is it for a rookie to play right away?

I think its important, Okogie said. Is it the most important thing? Probably not. But if I was given a chance to produce and to help this team win nothing would give me more joy than that. So hopefully it happens, and Ill work and do everything in my power to make it happen.

Oscar Robertson commends the off-court activism of todays NBA players K'Waun Williams Jersey , although the Hall of Famer wonders why more white athletes arent speaking out, too. Robertson received the Lifetime Achievement Award from presenters Charles Barkley and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at the NBA Awards on Monday night.

Robertson is the career leader in triple-doubles and was the first player to average one for a season. His antitrust case against the NBA also ushered in free agency for players, which Robertson said was his most important assist.

The 79-year-old former guard who starred at Crispus Attucks High in Indianapolis and in college at Cincinnati before going to the NBA said its time for players to speak out about politics and education, among other issues.

But the only thing that really bothers me is where are the white athletes when this is happening? he said backstage. This is not a black athlete problem. You see injustice in the world. Its all around you.

Robertsons high school and college career was plagued by racism.

But it seems that what we have today is a system where you dont want players to say anything at all, he said. Because years ago they didnt say anything because they couldnt say anything. But now I hope they all, the whites and the blacks get together. Even with the football.

Robertson was referring to NFL players who have taken a knee or sat in silence during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

What do you think is going to happen when the union gets involved with the owners? he said You think its going to be settled really easily? No, its not. Its going to be nothing but a total mess.





The four-week stretch from the middle of June to the middle of July gives NFL coaches a rare opportunity to get away from it all. To relax, to unwind. To not worry.

For some coaches, good luck with the last part. History has proven time and again that as many of one in four NFL coaches wont be NFL coaches six months after the start of training camp. Every year, theres a list of coaches regarded as being on the hot seat as the season approaches.

And in more and more jurisdictions, bettors will be able to put money on which coach will be the first to have his supply of money cut off (pending a buyout).

Heres the list, with Browns coach Hue Jackson as the favorite at +350. Next is Dolphins coach Adam Gase at +750, followed by Bengals coach Marvin Lewis at +1000, Broncos coach Vance Joseph at +1000 Jared Cook Jersey , Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter at +1200 (those were pre-Jameis Winston suspension odds), Washington coach Jay Gruden at +1200, Jets coach Todd Bowles at +1600, Texans coach Bill OBrien at +2000, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett at +2500, Ravens coach John Harbaugh at +2800, Raiders coach Jon Gruden at +2800, and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll at +2800.

And this is where well likely carve out a niche of sorts in this new world of sports wagering. On a game-by-game basis, when the bounce of the ball, the gust of wind, a bad decision at the worst possible time, or a flaw in game-planning can change things dramatically, its too hard to know what will happen with any degree of certainty. When it comes to big-picture, full-season propositions Nick Nelson Jersey , however, thats a different story.

On those bets, the feel that comes from following the NFL every waking moment of every day will be very beneficial. And as it relates to this specific proposition, here are the bets to avoid, and the bets to consider.

Dont waste your money betting on OBrien, Harbaugh, Jon Gruden, or Pete Carroll being the first to be fired. OBrien has a new contract, Harbaugh most likely will be permitted to finish the season, barring a complete and total disaster (which isnt likely), Jon Gruden is just starting a 10-year contract that would have a hefty buyout, and Carrolls Seahawks likely will be better than most expect.

The smart money would be placed on Vance Joseph or Jay Gruden. Joseph avoided (perhaps narrowly) a termination after only one year on the job, with a team that seemed to be easily broken within the confines of a given game. (Remember when G.M. John Elway called the team soft?) If things dont turn around quickly in 2018, 聽Elway may feel compelled to shake things up. And he may decide that he made the wrong decision after 2017.

In Washington Aaron Burbridge Jersey , theres plenty of pressure on the entire organization, and plenty of indications that the team will be battling at best for the basement. The Eagles will continue to be very good (most likely), the Cowboys should be better, and the Giants cant be much worse (and probably will be much better). If Washington falls behind its three arch rivals, owner Daniel Snyder could decide that the time has come to move on.

Gase is a surprise at +750, and thats another bet to avoid. He took the team to the playoffs in 2016, and he navigated a season of endless turmoil in 2017. The many doubters will serve only to strengthen the resolve of Gase and his team, which likely will be more of a team than it was given the departures of possibly-not-team-first players like Jarvis Landry, Ndamukong Suh, and Mike Pouncey.

Heres one more to avoid: Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, for a couple of reasons. First, they wont be as bad as many expect. Second, owner Mike Brown doesnt like to pay people to not work. So if a firing comes, it likely wont happen during the season barring the kind of meltdown that just isnt likely given the talent on the roster.

And heres one to watch John Matuszak Jersey , given the long odds (and potentially great payoff): Cowboys coach Jason Garrett. Although owner Jerry Jones prefers a coach who wont try to steal the spotlight, Garrett is running out of chances to prove Jones right for being so patient with the offensive coordinator who succeeded Wade Phillips during the 2010 season, after Jones made it clear that he wouldnt be firing Wade Phillips during the 2010 season.

If the Cowboys stumble out of the gates, if they are outcoached a time or two (e.g., six sacks registered by one player with no in-game adjustments), and if Jerry catches a wild hair as a Week Eight bye approaches (the first seven weeks of the schedule will be no picnic), Garrett could be the first one to go. And at $2500 for every $100 wagered, that would be a nice way to turn Garretts negative into something positive.

All that said, no one ever knows whats going to happen. But its a heck of a lot easier to predict moves like these over what will happen on any given Sunday, Monday, or Thursday.

The Buffalo Bills took the first step in restocking their quarterback position by agreeing to a two-year contract with A.J. McCarron. The 27-year-old spent the past four seasons backing up Andy Dalton in Cincinnati after being selected by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2014 draft.

McCarron's signing on Wednesday came a few hours after the NFL's free-agency period opened Frank Gore Jersey , and five days after Buffalo traded three-year starter Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland. The trade left 2017 fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman as the only quarterback on Buffalo's roster.

General manager Brandon Beane said he intended to add a veteran quarterback this offseason to provide experience.

With two picks in each of the first three rounds of the draft, Buffalo also is expected to target one of the highly touted quarterback prospects.

McCarron was a two-time national champion at Alabama but appeared in just 11 games in Cincinnati, mostly in mop-up duties. McCarron did start the final three games of the 2015 season and led the Bengals to the playoffs after Dalton broke his thumb.

Against Pittsburgh in the wild-card playoff game, McCarron had the Bengals in position to win their first playoff game since the 1990 season. Jeremy Hill however lost a fumble, and penalties on Vontaze Burfict and Adam "Pacman" Jones set up the Steelers for a winning field goal in the final seconds.

Though he missed his rookie season because of a sore passing shoulder Charles Harris Jersey , McCarron was allowed to become an unrestricted free agent after an independent arbitrator ruling last month. McCarron was also nearly traded to Cleveland last season, but the deal fell through after the Browns failed to submit the paperwork on time.

The Bengals agreed to a one-year deal with often-injured tight end Tyler Eifert and a three-year deal with punter Kevin Huber on Thursday, holding onto two of their unrestricted free agents. Eifert has been hurt during much of his five-year career in Cincinnati. He was sidelined for half of the 2016 season because of an ankle injury and a problem with a disc in his back that required surgery. He aggravated his back early last season and went on an injury list after two games.

"Couldn't be happier to stay home in Cincinnati," Eifert tweeted . "The last five years have been tough at times but every day I have been proud to be on the @Bengals."

The Bengals took Eifert with the 21st overall choice in the 2013 draft, hoping his pass receiving skills would upgrade their offense. He's been one of Andy Dalton's favorite targets Tim Williams Jersey , especially near the goal line, but has been severely limited by injuries in three of his five seasons.

The Bengals finished last in the NFL in offense last season for the first time in their history.

Eifert caught 39 passes for 445 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games as a rookie. The following year, he hurt his shoulder during training camp and dislocated an elbow in the opener, ending his season. He returned and had his best season in 2015, caching 52 passes for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns Chris Jones Jersey , a franchise record for a tight end.

He made the Pro Bowl that season and tore a ligament in his ankle during the game, requiring surgery. He returned and played in eight games in 2016, making 29 catches for 394 yards and five touchdowns, but an injured back disc ended the season and resulted in more surgery.

Huber has spent all 10 seasons with Cincinnati. He had 32 punts inside the 20-yard line last season, fourth in the NFL.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn had good reason not to worry about Julio Jones showing up for training camp. Jones told Quinn weeks ago he'd report on time Evan Engram Jersey , even as the wide receiver sought to have his contract renegotiated. A training camp holdout appeared to be Jones' best path to a new deal.

Finally, the Falcons announced close to midnight on Wednesday they'd reached an agreement to renegotiate Jones' deal next year. The news came about 16 hours before Thursday's deadline for players to report.

The Falcons open training camp on Friday.

"I probably didn't feel the same stress that you and the fan base had," Quinn said at a news conference on Thursday. "There were some reports regarding him not coming. I'd known he was coming to camp for a while. That's part of good communication, player to coaches."

The Falcons announced Jones reported before Thursday's 4 p.m. deadline.

Quinn said he spoke with Jones earlier this month when the receiver participated in an annual offseason passing camp in California led by quarterback Matt Ryan.

"It was probably during that time that I felt comfortable he was coming to camp," Quinn said.

The reassurance from Jones was especially important after he did not participate in the Falcons' mandatory minicamp in June.

Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff were in good spirits as they discussed how they avoided the potential distraction of a training camp holdout by one of the team's most prominent players.

It has been a good week for the Falcons' leadership team. Quinn and Dimitroff have new three-year contract extensions, which were announced on Wednesday.

Jones, a two-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey , wasn't happy that a flurry of new contracts signed by other top NFL wide receivers moved him down the list of top-paid players at the position.

He is entering the third year of his five-year, $71.5 million contract, including $47 million in guaranteed money.

The Falcons managed to make Jones happy with an undisclosed financial "adjustment" without a dramatic change to their salary cap position for 2018. Dimitroff wouldn't reveal details of the new agreement.

The biggest reward for Jones was the assurance the team will rework his contract following the season. That promise was delivered with more than a handshake.

"Papers are written up, sitting on a desk waiting to be signed," Dimitroff said.

The agreement preserves Dimitroff's flexibility in his efforts to negotiate contract extensions for defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, offensive guard Jake Matthews and safety Ricardo Allen.

The Falcons already agreed to a five-year, $150 million extension with quarterback Matt Ryan Amari Cooper Jersey , the most lucrative deal in NFL history, this offseason.

Ryan's contract and talks with players moving closer to free agency left little financial space to make big changes to Jones' deal before 2019.

"We felt like we came to a good agreement," Dimitroff said. "We were very creative with how we put this together."

Dimitroff said talks with Jones' agent, Jimmy Sexton, were "never contentious at all, at least from our perspective."

Jones is expected to talk with reporters on Friday, when the Falcons have their first practice of training camp. He was not seen during the 30-minute period reporters were able to view players reporting to the team's practice facility.

Jones' teammates seemed to have little concern about the status of the team's top receiver.

"Oh Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey , I don't know what's going on with him," offensive guard Andy Levitre said when asked about the team's agreement with Jones. "He's coming? I'm expecting everybody to be here, I guess."

Added cornerback Brian Poole: "That's exciting. That's definitely exciting. Yeah. That's exciting."

Poole said players don't get involved in teammates' contract talks.

"When it comes to that kind of stuff, everybody kind of worries about himself," Poole said.

But when it comes to Quinn and Dimitroff, having one of the league's top receivers on the practice field is crucial to the team's hopes for a third straight playoff appearance.

"I sleep a hell of a lot better at night," Quinn said.

Johnny Manziel never made it off the sideline in Hamilton's regular-season opener Archie Manning Jersey , looking on as starter Jeremiah Masoli played in the Tiger-Cats' 28-14 loss to the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday night. Manziel is making a comeback with the Canadian Football League team after being released by the Cleveland Browns in March 2016. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M was 21 of 32 for 168 yards and a touchdown in two exhibition games.

Masoli was 25 of 36 for 344 yards and a touchdown and also ran for a score. Calgary rallied in the fourth quarter on Bo Levi Mitchell 15-yard touchdown pass to Kamar Jorden, and Don Jackson's 44-yard scoring run.

Hamilton will return to action Friday night at Edmonton.

The hits keep coming for the Jets.

The league has announced that cornerback Rashard Robinson has been suspended four games for violating the leagues substance abuse policy.

Robinson was arrested last year for possession of edible marijuana Will Lutz Jersey , which triggered the suspension.

The Jets traded for him last October, which coach Todd Bowles didnt realize was happening at the time. They gave the 49ers a fifth-round pick for him Andre Reed Jersey , and in hindsight that looks even worse.

He only played 20 snaps for them the rest of the year, which made it unclear what kind of future he had there anyway.

Hes also the second Jet to be suspended in the last week Eric Berry Jersey , as wide receiver ArDarius Stewart was hit with a two-game ban for violating the policy on performance enhancing substances.

Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden says wide receiver Josh Doctson is OK after landing hard on his left shoulder. Gruden said Thursday "everything checked out fine" after an evaluation. The third-year receiver is expected to be held out of at least one practice, but Gruden insisted it's not a problem.

Doctson got tangled up with cornerback Josh Norman during red-zone drills at training camp Thursday and left with trainers. He posted on Twitter that he was OK.

Achilles' tendon soreness robbed the 2016 first-round pick of most of his rookie season. But he played every game last year and had 35 catches for 502 yards and six touchdowns. Even with the addition of Paul Richardson Kellen Winslow Jersey , the Redskins expect significant contributions from Doctson with new quarterback Alex Smith.

Bryan Colangelo may not have authored any of the tweets himself K'Waun Williams Jersey , but he seemed to provide private information that went into them. And when his wife used those details to criticize his own players or rival colleagues, Colangelo and the Philadelphia 76ers knew he could no longer remain their top basketball executive.

Colangelo resigned Thursday as president of basketball operations for the 76ers in the wake of what an investigation found was careless and in some instances reckless sharing of sensitive team information.

The independent review by a law firm did not determine that Colangelo operated or was even aware of Twitter accounts that anonymously trashed some of his own players and fellow executives, and defended him against criticism from fans and the sports media.

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP said evidence supported the conclusion that Colangelos wife, Barbara Bottini, operated the four accounts it investigated, and she admitted to doing so though also said she deleted contents of her iPhone with a factory reset of the device prior to surrendering it for forensic review, limiting the investigation.

Our investigation revealed substantial evidence that Mr. Colangelo was the source of sensitive Mike Evans Jersey , non-public, club-related information contained in certain posts to the Twitter accounts, the report said. We believe that Mr. Colangelo was careless and in some instances reckless in failing to properly safeguard sensitive, non-public, club-related information in communications with individuals outside the 76ers organization.

As for Colangelo, there was no evidence he knew of the accounts before a May 22 inquiry from the sports website The Ringer for a story it reported linking him to five Twitter accounts that took aim at Philadelphia players Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz, former Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie, Toronto Raptors executive Masai Ujiri and former Sixers players Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel.

Colangelo released a statement disputing that his conduct was reckless.

At no point did I ever purposefully or directly share any sensitive, non-public, club-related information with her Aldrick Rosas Jersey , he said.

Her actions were a seriously misguided effort to publicly defend and support me, and while I recognize how inappropriate these actions were, she acted independently and without my knowledge or consent. Further, the content she shared was filled with inaccuracies and conjecture which in no way represent my own views or opinions.

Evidence found that Bottini established and operated four of the accounts Eric jr, Still Balling, Enoughunkownsources, and HonestAbe but it seemed some of the information being posted, such as details of trade discussions or medical reports, was coming from Colangelo himself.

As such, the team said it had become clear Bryans relationship with our team and his ability to lead the 76ers moving forward has been compromised and that it had accepted his resignation.

We find the situation to be disappointing for our entire organization Jimmy Smith Jersey , 76ers managing partner Josh Harris said. We are determined to continue the tremendous progress we have made over the last two seasons in our quest to win an NBA championship.

Its a stunning fall for Colangelo, a former two-time Executive of the Year who was expected to lead the improving 76ers into an important summer when they are hoping to pursue LeBron James or another All-Star player to add to a young core that includes Embiid and Ben Simmons.

Instead that role will be led for now by coach Brett Brown. The 76ers said he would oversee basketball operations on an interim basis and that the search for a new general manager would begin immediately.

You never want to see someones job end through an unfortunate circumstance like this. I certainly understand from the 76ers standpoint that that bond has been broken, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said. Its not even necessary to assign fault, just the reality of where they all find themselves. I think Bryan recognizes like that as well, that these teams are like families and it can get to a point where it becomes dysfunctional and I think thats where they found themselves right now.

Colangelo, the son of longtime sports executive Jerry Colangelo, was hired as president of basketball operations in 2016 after Hinkie abruptly resigned. Hinkie was the architect behind what has been called The Process the long-term tearing down and rebuilding of the Sixers.

Colangelo previously served as Raptors general manager, adding the 2007 Executive of the Year award to the one he won two years earlier in Phoenix. But he lost his job there after Toronto missed the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season, and Ujiri took over basketball operations.

Over the last two years, I have worked hard to help build a foundation for what I hope will soon be many championship seasons for the 76ers DeVante Parker Jersey , Colangelo said. I am grateful to team owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer for the opportunity they gave me to be part of such a great organization. I am saddened to have to leave under these circumstances.

The Colorado Avalanche are bringing back defenseman Mark Barberio on a two-year deal.

Barberio is coming off a season in which he had three goals and 10 assists. He was limited to 46 games due to a lower-body injury, but returned at the end of the regular season and played in all six games during the first-round playoff series against the Nashville Predators.

The 28-year-old Barberio was claimed by Colorado off waivers from Montreal on Feb. 2, 2017. A sixth-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2008, hes played in 239 career games with the Lightning, Canadiens and Avalanche.

Last week, Colorado signed defenseman Mark Alt to a two-year deal. Alt was claimed by the Avs off waivers from Philadelphia on Feb. 26.

Quarterback Sam Bradford was well aware of David Johnson even before signing with the Cardinals in the offseason. Bradford was on the opposite sideline when Johnson rushed for 187 yards and three touchdowns while trouncing Bradfords Eagles in 2015.

A training camp with Johnson has only amplified Bradfords appreciation.

When I first got here Willie Snead IV Jersey , I think everyone tried to explain just how special he was and what he was able to do in the run game and the pass game, all the ways that he could be used, Bradford said. Ive heard that before about some players, but then you actually see it and you see how smooth he is running routes. He looks like a receiver when he is split out wide. You just dont see that from a guy that is as talented at running the ball as he is. Im excited to play with David. I think he is extremely versatile, and hopefully we find a way to use him a lot.

New coach Steve Wilks and new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy are expected to do exactly that, although it might not be evident in the Cardinals preseason opener against San Diego on Saturday.

Neither Bradford nor Johnson is likely to see much time, more to give the coaches time to evaluate the rest of the squad than to protect Bradford (knee) and Johnson (wrist) from contact.

Rookie Chase Edmonds, a fourth-round pick out of Fordham, is listed as No. 2 on the depth chart, and veteran D.J. Foster provides a run/pass threat in a running back corps that also includes T.J. Logan and Sherman Badie.

Johnson Ray Nitschke Jersey , who was second in the NFL with 2,118 yards in total offense in 2016, was injured in the 2017 season opener against Detroit and hasnt played since. He understands the preseason plan.

Even though I was hurt last year, I know how the NFL works, Johnson said. Ive played long enough to know the speed of NFL games and I know what I am supposed to do.

Johnsons focus in training camp, which he opted to attend after sitting out the mandatory offseason workouts in June because of a contract dispute, is to get in synch with McCoys playbook.

The new offense is more oriented to the short pass, while former coach Bruce Arians believed in the home run ball.

Its been great, Johnson said. Mike McCoy really knows how to bring out everyones strengths. He knows how to structure the offense to where it brings out what everyone is good at. I feel like it is going to be a great offense.

Johnsons emphasis now is on learning the nuances of the new running game, although it is safe to assume his pass-catching ability will be utilized as it was in 2016 Mark Andrews Jersey , when he had 1,239 rushing yards on 293 carries and 879 receiving yards on 80 receptions.

While Johnson will be the feature back, the Cardinals will use other packages that could involve Edmonds, Foster and others depending on the opponents defensive schemes, Wilks said.

All those guys are being very competitive, Wilks said. There are going to be some tough decisions. Thats what you want as a coach. We want those guys to make us make those tough decisions with the things they are doing.

NOTES: The Cardinals placed center A.Q. Shipley on injured reserve Tuesday, three days after he suffered a season-ending knee injury in a team scrimmage. Mason Cole, a third-round draft choice from Michigan, is listed as the starting center, but coach Wilks said Anthony Hitchens Jersey , Im not going to try to put all the pressure on him. Its going to be by committee. Those guys have to do a great job communicating, starting with the guards and out to the tackles and making sure they put us in the right position from a (pass) protection standpoint.

The wait is on for Baker Mayfield.

No matter how many times Hue Jackson says no, the Browns coach still gets asked whether Mayfield will get first-team reps this preseason. Jackson said no yet again Monday.

No, no, no, no, no, Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Everybodys asked me that a ton of times. Why? Im going to tell you the reason why. We are learning a new system, and I think Tyrod [Taylor] needs every rep that he can get with the ones.

I think Bakers doing outstanding with the twos. If something happens Stephen Hauschka Jersey , and we need to put him there, we will. Right now, that hasnt happened.

Jackson has never wavered in his support of Taylor as the teams starter. Mayfield will have to wait his turn despite being the top choice, something hes familiar with after walking on at Texas Tech and then Oklahoma.

Whenever I got to Texas Tech I wasnt given an opportunity to get out there as well, MaYfield said. Then when I got to [Oklahoma] I was on scout team. Its how Ive always handled it. Whatever opportunity I get, to make sure I get better I need to take advantage of that.

America loves comeback stories Rickey Jackson Jersey , the last-to-first variety that features new stars, big plays and a monumental triumph at the end. That would be the tale of the Philadelphia Eagles if they win Sundays Super Bowl.

The oddsmakers dont see it happening and have installed the New England Patriots yes, them again as 4+-point favorites.

Give Philly its due, however: The Eagles have a strong chance of winning their first NFL crown since 1960 and their first Lombardi Trophy.

Will they? Read on.

Doug Pedersons bunch has shown the resilience of a champion, losing such key players as quarterback Carson Wentz, a strong MVP contender, left tackle Jason Peters, linebacker Jordan Hicks and running back Darren Sproles to injuries.

Its the next-man-up mentality, Pederson says. It also means that you have some veteran players that keep things together Justin Britt Jersey , and good coaching staffs. I think its a tribute to the players and everyone involved that they can keep things going even through that adversity.

Philadelphia has not yielded a point in the second half of either playoff game. It put 31 on the stingiest scoring defense in the league, and threw in a defensive TD in routing Minnesota for the NFC championship. Its backup quarterback, Nick Foles, has been everything from solid to spectacular in his career playoff games.

The Eagles can disrupt Tom Brady with a fierce pass rush up front, led by Fletcher Cox, who has been the best defensive player in the entire postseason. They have threats on offense in the passing game and at running back.

And they are facing a New England squad that has not been as powerful as some of the teams Brady has led in seven previous Super Bowls, going 5-2.

Yet, dont be misled. These are still the Patriots, probably the most resourceful group of athletes on the planet. They make big plays Tom Rathman Jersey , not only thanks to Bradys arm but on a defense that only recently began getting the praise it warrants.

Plus, they have all that experience in the big game, bringing 31 players back from last years championship roster.

We know what to expect, but at the end of the day, youve got to perform, linebacker Kyle Van Noy said. So theres really no upper hand. Youve got to just play the game and get ready for it and play at a high level.

New England doesnt always do that in the Super Bowl. Recall last Februarys first 40 minutes or so, when it was down 28-3 to Atlanta before the Falcons stopped charging and Brady led an historic rally.

The one consistency about the Patriots is that they play close Super Bowls. The total difference in scoring in those seven games is 12 points: Patriots 169, opponents 157.

So do they pull out another close one, or does Philly complete its uplifting saga?

It all comes down to one thing: which team has Brady.

Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Christian Kirk took the field Tuesday for the first time since a report surfaced about his arrest in the months before the team chose him in the second round of the NFL draft.

Kirk ran routes, caught passes and took part in special teams work. He was not made available to reporters.

But head coach Steve Wilks was asked about Kirk following Tuesdays full-team mini-camp practice at the Cardinals facility and he said the team knew about the arrest.

We did our own independent research on it, and we felt very good about the information we received, Wilks said. Thats why we moved forward and really drafted him. And as I stated before, we want to bring in great character guys, and I think Christian is one of those guys.

Kirk, 21 Bart Starr Jersey , who is from nearby Scottsdale and who played his college ball at Texas A&M, was arrested the night of Feb. 3 outside the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament on charges of disorderly conduct and property damage. According to police, Kirk was with a group that was intoxicated and throwing rocks at cars.

Wilks said he believes the matter will be resolved in a couple of months.

With it still being an ongoing legal issue, Im not going to go into it any further than that, Wilks said.

NOTES: Wilks mentioned the strong practice performances of RB David Johnson, who is coming off a dislocated wrist injury that cut short his 2017 season in Week 1, and rookie first-round pick QB Josh Rosen. Some of his timing and his throws with the quarterback and the tight ends I thought were right on point, Wilks said. QB Mike Glennon came off the field early in practice with a trainer. Wilks said Glennon had a stomach problem. The coach expects him to be on the field Wednesday.

Ryan OReilly was unable to hide his dejection as he acknowledged that the Sabres latest last-place finish led him to question his love for hockey. If that wasnt enough Eric Berry Jersey , the high-priced center accused the Sabres of adopting a mindset of being OK with losing.

Its crept into all of our games. Yeah, its disappointing. Its sad, OReilly said Monday, two days after Buffalo closed one of its worst seasons in franchise history. I feel throughout the year Ive lost the love of the game multiple times, and just need to get back to it because its eating myself up, and eats the other guys up, too.

Losing is all OReilly knows in the three seasons since being acquired in a trade with Colorado, after which the Sabres signed him to a seven-year, $52.5 million contract extension.

Rather than being part of a rebuilding plan, which included Buffalo selecting Jack Eichel with the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft, OReilly and company find themselves back at square one. They became the NHLs first team to finish 31st following this years addition of the expansion Vegas Golden Knights after back-to-back 30th-place finishes in 2013-14 and 2014-15.

This years collapse is considerably worse given that Buffalos trajectory was supposed to be trending upward under the new regime of general manager Jason Botterill and coach Phil Housley. They took over last spring after the Sabres underachieved in finishing 26th under GM Tim Murray and coach Dan Bylsma

We have to evaluate everything Eddie Yarbrough Jersey , coaching staff, the players. What are they willing to change? Housley said. There comes a point in your career where you have to realize whats important. Obviously, winning, what it takes to win, the commitment to win in this league. And thats what we talk about change.

Very little went right in a season Buffalo opened 1-5-2 and closed 2-9, extending the franchises longest playoff drought to a seventh straight year.

Buffalo matched a franchise low for home wins by going 11-25-5, including a 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers in the Winter Classic at New York City. The Sabres finished last in the NHL with 199 goals scored, 91 goals at home and in being outscored by 81 goals.

Their best run was a three-game win streak, all on the road, while the Sabres went winless over four or more games seven times, including an 0-5-2 skid from Nov. 10-22.

The reality of how bad the Sabres were Logan Paulsen Jersey , set in at the midpoint of the season for defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen.

It was around Christmas and we were done, and we still had 40 games to play, Ristolainen said. Everyone wants to make the playoffs so bad, and we werent even close.

LIKING EICH

Eichel led Buffalo with a career-best 25 goals and 64 points in 67 games, despite missing 15 games with a sprained right ankle. Much more is expected next season when Eichels eight-year, $80 million contract kicks in.

Things will get better and it starts with me, Eichel said. Everybody needs to look at themselves and figure out what theyre doing. Obviously, whatever Ive been doing hasnt been working. What weve been doing as a team hasnt been working.

DOWN ON THE FARM

While the Sabres are done, their AHL Rochester Americans affiliate qualified for the playoffs for the first time in four years. The Americans feature several Sabres prospects being counted upon to play in Buffalo full-time next season including forward Alexander Nylander, defenseman Brendan Guhle and goalie Linus Ullmark.

FREE AGENTS

The Sabres have a decision to make in goal with starter Robin Lehner set to become a restricted free agent and backup Chad Johnson eligible to become an unrestricted free agent. The teams other pending unrestricted free agents include forwards Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Nolan, and defenseman Josh Gorges.

Forward Sam Reinhart Walt Aikens Jersey , who scored a career-best 25 goals, completed his three-year entry level contract and eligible to be a restricted free agent.

OFF TO THE WORLDS

Rookie first-round draft pick Casey Mittelstadt accepted Hockey USAs invitation to compete at the world championships in Denmark next month. Mittelstadt signed with Buffalo last month after completing his freshman season at Minnesota. The center won a bronze medal representing the U.S. at the World Junior hockey championships in January.

INJURIES

Lehner visited a specialist Monday to assess a lower body injury that forced him to miss the final five games. D Zach Bogosian expects to be cleared to skate by June after having season-ending hip surgery in January.



More NHL hockey: Once he was released by Jacksonville, running back Chris Ivory wasted little time moving on to Plan B: The chance to serve as LeSean McCoy's primary backup in Buffalo.

"I always felt I had something to prove and things didn't go as planned, man," Ivory said, referring to the Jaguars during a telephone conference call shortly after agreeing to a two-year contract with the Bills on Tuesday. "All I can do now is continue to stay dedicated to my craft and continue to build."

As for his new role behind McCoy, the Bills' workhorse, Ivory said: "It's whatever coach asks me to do."

Ivory's new deal guarantees him $3.25 million in pay, and was reached less than two weeks after he was cut . Ivory finished with just 382 yards rushing and a touchdown and was inactive for four of the Jaguars' final five games. He lasted just two seasons with Jacksonville after signing a five-year, $32 million contract as the Jaguars drafted Leonard Fournette last April and made him the starter.

The 29-year-old returns to the AFC East, where he topped 800 yards rushing in each of his three seasons with the New York Jets from 2013-15. His best season came in 2015 Jim Kelly Jersey , when Ivory had 1,070 yards rushing and scored seven touchdowns in 15 games.

Ivory is known for being a physical runner and provides the Bills a complement to McCoy's elusive style.

Overall, he has 4,852 yards rushing and 28 touchdowns in a career that began with a three-year stint with the New Orleans Saints.

Getting Ivory allowed the Bills to address a need at the position a little over a week before the start of the NFL's free agency signing period. Buffalo has three running backs eligible to become free agents, including fullback Mike Tolbert.

Ivory said he visited Buffalo and Cleveland since being cut by the Jaguars, and had phone conversations with other teams without revealing which ones.

"It just felt good when I got here, just felt the right place for me," Ivory said.

When the Saints drafted Patrick Robinson with the 32nd pick of the 2010 draft Malcom Brown Jersey , the idea was that hed become a fixture in their secondary for years to come.

It didnt work out that way, however. Robinson spent one season as a full-time starter, missed time with injuries and generally failed to meet the expectations he carried into the league. Robinson left the Saints in 2015, spent time with the Chargers and Colts and then flourished as a slot corner with the Eagles last year.

All of that led Robinson back to New Orleans as a free agent this offseason. Robinson said this week that the first stint wasnt a success, but that it was a necessary experience for him to grow into the player hes developed into over the years.

I think for me, I think I needed to go through that experience, Robinson said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Growing up, I was always very talented Chris Ivory Jersey , one of the better skill players on the team. Going through that whole stretch of up and downs, getting injured, I think that was definitely something that I needed, and over these past years, Ive learned a lot.

Robinson said he felt his first run with the Saints ended on a bitter note, but thats not likely to be whats remembered in New Orleans if the second act resembles his work with the Eagles.

Richard Sherman has been cleared to practice for the San Francisco 49ers at the start of training camp. Sherman joined San Francisco after getting released by rival Seattle following season-ending surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon. He was unable to participate in the offseason program but pronounced himself 100 percent when he reported to camp Wednesday and will take part in the team's first practice Thursday.

Sherman earned a $2 million bonus for passing his physical under a contract he negotiated himself following the injury that ended his season last November. Sherman consulted with former Lakers great Kobe Bryant on what it takes to come back from that kind of injury and always believed he would be ready for the start of camp.

"It was a grind," he said. "But I think it was more like one of those things that you can look at optimistically or pessimistically. You can look at it as, 'Woe is me, why did this happen to me? Why do I have to go through this?' Or you could look at it as Lee Roy Selmon Jersey , 'I needed another great challenge and I needed another mountain to climb.' That's how I treated it."

Coach Kyle Shanahan said the initial plan for Sherman will be to practice the first two days, take a day off Saturday and then return to the field Sunday. The 49ers will take Monday off and the team will see how Sherman has responded to figure out what's next.

"We trust what he thinks and how he works," Shanahan said. "A lot of it is up to Richard. If he's being too aggressive, it's our job to pull him back. It's a matter of time when he gets back and we want to be smart with that."

Six players will open camp on injured lists, although most are expected back relatively soon. Guard Jonathan Cooper (knee), receiver Trent Taylor (back) and linebacker Dekoda Watson (calf) are on the physically unable to perform list.

Linebacker Malcolm Smith had a lower leg injury while working out on his own recently and will begin camp on the non-football injury list, along with rookies Marcell Harris and Kentavius Street, who were hurt when they were drafted.

But having a healthy Sherman to start camp is a big boost for a team full of optimism after winning the final five games last season under quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to finish 6-10.

The midseason acquisition of Garoppolo from New England turned around a struggling franchise that had lost 24 of 27 games before he took over as starter late last season.

"I don't think anybody is thinking about last year," Sherman said. "It was a 6-10 team that didn't make the playoffs. The few positives that come from last year Kyle Van Noy Jersey , you can appreciate them, but it's still a 6-10 team that was picking in the top 10 in the draft. There's not a lot to celebrate. That's the way to approach it. Guys are hungry, they're excited to go out there and prove this is a great team that can win ballgames."

Sherman talking up the 49ers is an odd change following his years tormenting the franchise when he played for Seattle. He made the deflection that led to an NFC title-clinching interception in January 2014 before trash-talking Michael Crabtree and then memorably celebrated a Thanksgiving night win over the 49ers the following season by eating a turkey leg at midfield at Levi's Stadium.

Now he's mentoring young cornerbacks such as Ahkello Witherspoon, trading tips with Garoppolo, and quickly turning into a locker room leader.

"He's been pretty much the exact opposite of what I thought," veteran left tackle Joe Staley said. "I thought he was going to be annoying like he was annoying to me when he was in a Seahawks uniform but he's been nothing but great."

The 49ers are also hoping Sherman can get back close to his level of play during his prime in Seattle when he was perhaps the game's top shutdown cornerback. He was a first-team All-Pro for three straight seasons starting in 2012, leading the league with eight interceptions in 2013.

Sherman still was one of the better cornerbacks the past three seasons, ranking second in the NFL by allowing just 49.2 percent of passes against him to be caught, according to Pro Football Focus.

He said he feels re-energized after the injury.

"I'm not saying you get complacent Johnny Townsend Jersey , but you get bored," he said. "It's a routine. You go out there and play 16 games, play at a high level and do your best and you enjoy it, but sometimes when you throw a wrench in the plans kind of helps you. It wakes you up. It reignites the fire. It takes you back to where you need to be."

NOTES: Second-round WR Dante Pettis signed his rookie deal late Wednesday afternoon. ... The 49ers signed OL JP Flynn to a two-year deal and DLs Will Sutton and Cedric Thornton to one-year contracts. DB Don Jones, OL Jamar McGloster and DL Blaine Woodson were waived to make room on the roster.

The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a deal with free-agent defensive tackle Terrell McClain Jordan Richards Jersey , who started two games for the Washington Redskins in 2017. The 29-year-old McClain was released by the Redskins on April 30.

McClain, a third-round draft pick by Carolina in 2011, has started in 29 of 74 games with five teams. His longest stint was with the Dallas Cowboys from 2014-16. He had 20 tackles and two sacks with the Redskins last season.

Defensive tackle was an area of need for Atlanta Rayshawn Jenkins Jersey , which lost starter Dontari Poe, who signed as a free agent with Carolina. The Falcons selected Deadrin Senat from South Florida in the third round of the NFL draft to compete at the position.

The New England Patriots signed wide receiver Jordan Matthews as they continue jumbling their corps of targets for Tom Brady. Matthews, 25 Clay Matthews Jersey , has played four NFL seasons, three with the Eagles and last season with the Bills (2017). In 56 NFL games with 42 starts, he has 250 receptions for 2 Otis Sistrunk Jersey ,955 yards and 20 touchdowns.

He was a second-round draft pick (42nd overall) by Philadelphia in 2014 out of Vanderbilt. He was traded from Philadelphia to Buffalo along with a third-round draft pick last summer for cornerback Ronald Darby.

New England previously saw Danny Amendola leave for Miami as a free agent, and traded Brandin Cooks to the Rams for a first-round draft pick. The Patriots expect top receiver Julian Edelman to return from a knee injury that cost him the 2017 season.

While the Chicago Bears addressed one need at linebacker early in the NFL draft Cyrus Jones Jersey , their problem at outside pass rusher had to wait. It waited until the sixth round on Saturday.

Bears general manager Ryan Pace turned largely to the defensive side in the final day with three selections, including sixth-round defensive end Kylie Fitts from Utah.

Before Fitts, the Bears selected Western Kentucky inside linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe in Round 4, and Delaware defensive tackle Bilal Nichols in Round 5. They closed out the draft in the seventh round by taking another target for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, Georgia wide receiver Javon Wims.

After grabbing Georgia standout inside linebacker Roquan Smith with the No. 8 overall pick on Thursday, the Bears drafted Iowa center James Daniels with the 39th pick on Friday, then traded up to select Memphis receiver Anthony Miller at No. 51.

Yet there was no outside pass rush help until they took Fitts as the Bears stuck to their draft board instead of moving up or reaching for a player at a position of need.

"You've just got to be careful that you don't force these things," Pace said. "I'm glad we attacked needs, but we also took best players on the board."

Now they'll be left to rely on free agent acquisition Aaron Lynch and third-year linebacker Leonard Floyd for an outside pass rush, while considering remaining unrestricted free agents or undrafted free agents.

Overall, productive safe picks replaced potential and risky selections for Chicago, as Pace made only one trade in his first draft since Matt Nagy became coach.

Last year Kendell Beckwith Jersey , Pace traded up to select Trubisky with the second pick of the draft after Trubisky had just 13 college starts. He picked fast, undersized pass rusher Floyd in the first round in 2016, and in 2015 drafted inexperienced wide receiver Kevin White. White has played in five NFL games due to injuries.

The Bears finished last in the NFC North for the fourth straight year and have missed the playoffs every season since 2010, leading to the firing of coach John Fox. They haven't posted a winning record since 2012, Lovie Smith's final year.

INJURY QUESTIONS

A defensive end in Utah's 4-3 formation, Fitts has more than his inexperience in the Bears' 3-4 scheme to overcome. He had a Lisfranc ligament tear in his foot in 2016 and played in only two games, then had shoulder and ankle sprains last year.

Fitts called the injuries the reason he dropped from a projected pick in the third or fifth rounds to the sixth.

"It was just a run of bad luck and I think I got it all out of the way," Fitts said. "I think it definitely made me into a stronger man and I'm healthy now and I'm excited to play for the Bears."

OVERLOOKED AGAIN

Going undrafted until the final round gave Georgia's Wims a familiar overlooked feeling.

When the Bears' seventh-round pick came out of high school, he had to go to NAIA Belhaven after only one year of high school football and because of poor grades. Wims left Belhaven for Hinds Junior College, earned a scholarship to Georgia, and helped lead the Bulldogs to the national title game last year with team highs of 45 catches, 720 yards and nine touchdowns.

INSIDE CONNECTION

Delaware's Nichols has a real inside Bears connection. Nagy is a Delaware grad Kenny Stills Jersey , as is Bears offensive assistant Brian Ginn, who played quarterback and was an assistant for the Blue Hens.

"Coach Ginn, he's an awesome guy," Nichols said. "He was one of the guys that helped recruit me at Delaware. Unbelievable guy, great guy."

STILL NEED

Additional outside pass rushers are needed because the Bears like to use a rotation of three or four outside rushers. Fitts joins Howard Jones, Isaiah Irving and Sam Acho as potential outside pass rushers behind Lynch and Floyd.

Veterans Lamarr Houston, Pernell McPhee and Willie Young accounted for 10 Bears sacks last year but are no longer with the team.

The Patriots placed four players on injured reserve as they got to the 53-man roster limit.

They placed first-round offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, wide receiver Braxton Berrios, linebacker Christian Sam and offensive lineman Ulrick John on IR.

The Patriots released the following 26 players: Defensive lineman聽John Atkins, punter Corey Bojorquez, running back Brandon Bolden, offensive lineman Luke Bowanko Maxx Williams Jersey , offensive lineman Cole Croston, quarterback Danny Etling, running back Kenneth Farrow, offensive lineman James Ferentz, linebacker Marquis Flowers, running back Mike Gillislee, defensive lineman Trent Harris, cornerback Cyrus Jones, offensive lineman Jason King, linebacker Harvey Langi, defensive lineman Eric Lee, wide receiver K.J. Maye Caleb Sturgis Jersey , wide receiver Riley McCarron, defensive back A.J. Moore, fullback Henry Poggi, offensive lienman Brian Schwenke, offensive lineman Matt Tobin, defensive back Damarius Travis, tight end Will Tye, defensive lineman Vincent Valentine, running back Ralph Webb and cornerback Jomal Wiltz.

Among the quirks in their roster at the moment is that they have just three wide receivers, setting the stage for more moves tomorrow.

The Texas Rangers sent rookie left-hander Yohander Mendez back to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday for violating team rules. Mendez was supposed to start Wednesdays series finale against Kansas City. But right-hander Austin Bibens-Dirkx will get the ball instead.

Its not criminal Cardinals Cheap Jerseys , nothing involving MLB or the police, general manager Jon Daniels said. There will be a program that well work with Yohander on.

Daniels said at least one other player was involved, but his discipline will be handled in-house.

Second baseman Rougned Odor was scratched from Texas lineup for Tuesdays game against the Royals, but manager Jeff Banister refused to comment on if the benching was related to the incident with Mendez, which took place after Monday nights 6-3 victory at Kansas City and away from Kauffman Stadium.

Banister said Mendez will have to merit a return to the majors.

Part of the development of where we are as a club is upholding a certain level of standards for veterans and young players alike, Daniels said. Part of the development process of young players is on the maturity side as well. Id say thats kind of where this one falls.

The 23-year-old Mendez is 0-1 with a 14.73 ERA in two games with the Rangers this season. He made his first major league start Friday against Colorado and was tagged for six runs and seven hits over three innings in a 9-5 loss.

The Valencia, Venezuela native broke into the majors in 2016. He is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA in 11 career outings.

Bibens-Dirkx was recalled from Round Rock to replace Mendez. He made two starts for Texas earlier this season, going 0-1 with a 6.55 ERA.

The rest of it I dont have any comment, Banister said. My messaging to the team is what I say to them as a group. I dont always need my messaging to come out in print. We are a team. There are things that happened inside the team concept. Well continue to put the team first in these types of situations. There are standards we want to live by every day and we want to make sure those standards are held in high regard.



Jose Trevino went from preparing for a game in Double-A to playing twice in less than 24 hours for the Texas Rangers, and delivering a tying RBI with his first big league hit.

The rookie catchers single in the seventh inning tied Saturdays game against the Colorado Rockies, and 39-year-old active career hits leader Adrian Beltre put the Rangers ahead with a two-run triple in the eighth as they stopped a seven-game skid with a 5-2 victory.

I couldnt tell you if I was more excited to get the tying RBI or my first hit Falcons Authentic Jerseys , but I knew if I got the RBI, itd be a hit, Trevino said. Its been crazy, just trying to soak it all in and slow it down.

Trevino was going through his pregame workouts Friday at Frisco, about 35 miles from the Rangers ballpark, when he got the late call-up to the big leagues. Rangers starting catcher Robinson Chirinos was going to serve his one-game MLB suspension for the scuffle after a home plate collision with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

Carlos Perez started Friday night behind the plate, but he injured his right ankle in the second inning, and Trevino quickly made his big league debut.

No time to be nervous, Trevino said.

When Perez got to the ballpark Saturday for a day game, he found out he was in the starting lineup. Perez went on the 10-day disabled list, and Chirinos was still sore from the collision.

Hes handled it great. To be forced into duty on a night when he came in as kind of an emergency Darius Leonard Jersey , manager Jeff Banister said. That at-bat at the end there (Saturday) was tremendous. He needs to be proud of himself.

Rougned Odor led off the Texas seventh with triple. He scored on a double by Isiah Kiner-Falefa, who came home when Trevino grounded a ball through the left side of the infield to tie the game at 2.

Beltre, who has been on the disabled list twice this season because of a strained left hamstring, got the triple on a fly ball that went over the head of right fielder Carlos Gonzalez and ricocheted off the bottom half of the outfield wall. It was Beltres 3,095th career hit.

As soon as I hit it, I knew it was enough to score the runs, so thats all I cared, Beltre said.

Off the bat, it looked like it was going to go over the fence. I tried to do as much as possible, Gonzalez said. I guess we can say we got lucky that it didnt go over the fence.

Delino DeShields drew a leadoff walk against Harrison Musgrave (0-2), and went to third on Jurickson Profars single before the 38th career triple for Beltre Authentic Customized Patriots Jerseys , who is in his 21st season. Pinch-runner Ryan Rua came home on Odors sacrifice fly.

Jose Leclerc (2-2) struck out two in a perfect eighth and Keone Kela worked the ninth for his 15th save, the most in the majors without a blown chance.

Rangers starter Mike Minor struck out six while matching his season long with seven innings. He had a balk and a wild pitch, both playing into the Rockies runs.

Ian Desmond walked in the second and advanced on a balk before a two-out single by Gonzalez. D.J. LeMahieu had a leadoff single in the sixth, and was at third after a wild pitch before coming home on Nolan Arenados sac fly.

But Minor worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh.

To keep the score the way it was, to give our guys that little energy level to say `Hey, were still in this, Banister said. If we give up a couple of runs there, its probably a little different situation.

GETTING ON BASE

Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo had a leadoff walk in the first, before adding two hits. He has reached base in 30 consecutive games for the longest streak in the American League this season.

STARTING FREE

Colorado left-hander Kyle Freeland, who won all four of his interleague starts as a rookie last season, permitted two runs and eight hits in seven innings.

Hes made great strides. I think theres a confidence level there to utilize a couple of different pitches Carlos Carrasco Cleveland Indians Jersey , manager Bud Black said. Hes limiting mistakes, especially with runners on base. Were seeing growth before our eyes.

TRAINERS ROOM

Rangers: SS Elvis Andrus, out since fracturing his right elbow April 11, was moved from Frisco to Triple-A Round Rock. He could rejoin the Rangers as early as Monday.

UP NEXT

RHP Yovani Gallardo, who has pitched for three different major league teams since leaving his hometown Rangers after the 2015 season, is expected to start the series finale for Texas. He has been at Triple-A since signing a minor league deal in April after being designated for assignment by Cincinnati. RHP Jon Gray, with a 7.98 ERA his last six starts, goes for the Rockies.

Jon Gruden jawed at the officials Falcons Cheap Jerseys , worked closely with the quarterbacks and was once again adored by the Oakland Raiders fans. It was as if he had never left the Coliseum.

Jon Gruden was a winner in his return to the sideline for Oakland when the Raiders got a touchdown pass from Connor Cook in a 16-10 victory over the Detroit Lions on Friday night.

"It was awesome," he said. "I saw some recognizable faces that had gotten a little bit older. I saw some old friends who mean a lot to me. Like I said all along, this is a great responsibility. The nostalgia has worn off. We have to do something with the opportunity. But it was sure great to see the Raiders fans."

Gruden was welcomed back warmly to the Coliseum for his first game here as Raiders coach since beating the Jets in a playoff game Jan. 12, 2001. Gruden was traded to Tampa Bay after that season and has spent the past nine years as an ESPN analyst.

Raiders owner Mark Davis lured Gruden back to the sideline with a 10-year contract worth a reported $100 million following a disappointing six-win season under Jack Del Rio.

The Gruden era appeared to get off to a rousing start when Marshawn Lynch ran 60 yards for a TD on the third snap, but the score was called back on a holding penalty by rookie tackle Kolton Miller.

"I was really ticked off after watching that get called back," Gruden said. "Chucky came out for a brief moment tonight."

Oakland settled for a punt on the only drive with starting quarterback Derek Carr, but scored three times in five drives with Cook at the helm. Cook threw a 7-yard TD pass to Ryan Switzer in the second quarter and led Oakland to a pair of field goals by rookie Eddy Pineiro. Cook finished 11 for 19 for 141 yards.

The Lions also welcomed a new coach in Matt Patricia, who opted to rest star quarterback Matthew Stafford Tavon Wilson Jersey , who got enough work in two days of joint practices against Oakland.

"We got a lot of good work in this week," Patricia said. "He took a lot of reps and he saw a lot of different looks. That was the goal, to come out here and be able to get some of those different team tempo plays and have it scripted and a little controlled. Just thought it was a good opportunity tonight to have the other guys go out and compete."

Matt Cassel got the start and went 10 for 18 for 81 yards, leading Detroit to one score on three drives, with Ameer Abdullah capping it with a 1-yard TD run . Jake Rudock finished 12 for 19 for 84 yards.

NATIONAL ANTHEM

Lynch once again sat during the national anthem. Lynch also sat for the anthem all of last season but never gave a reason for his decision. No other players on either team demonstrated during the anthem, with the Lions all standing together with locked arms.

ROOKIE REPORT

Lions second-round RB Kerryon Johnson showed good burst, running for 34 yards on seven carries and adding four catches for 33 yards.

"To me, didn't make enough plays at the beginning Youth Detroit Lions Jerseys , didn't make enough plays at the end," Johnson said. "I still have work to do. We still have work to do. It was the first game. First-game jitters out for everybody."

The Raiders also had a strong performance from a second-round pick with DT P.J. Hall getting a sack and batting down a pass in the first half. Oakland undrafted free agent RB Chris Warren III ran 13 times for 86 yards .

INJURIES

Raiders CB Antonio Hamilton limped off twice in the second half with an apparent ankle injury.

HELMET FOUL

There was one penalty under the new rule prohibiting players from leading with their helmets. Oakland S Karl Joseph was called for the infraction on a tackle against Abdullah in the second quarter.

OFF THE DIRT

Pineiro's second field goal came at the end of the first half after Gruden called for a run that set up Pineiro's 48-yarder off the infield dirt. Pineiro added a 45-yard field goal off the dirt in the fourth quarter. The Raiders will play at least one regular-season game this season with the infield dirt in place for Oakland Athletics games.
