Michael Thomas has a second chance to make a first impression.

The new Giants safety can only hope to create a memory as positive this time as he did last time.

Thomas capped his first NFL game with a victory-sealing end-zone interception of future Hall of Famer Tom Brady, keeping alive the Dolphins’ playoff hopes in December 2013. Five days earlier, Thomas was winding down his second season as a member of the 49ers practice squad.

Going from being in a sweatsuit and having a clipboard the Sunday prior with San Fran, getting to Miami on a Tuesday and then getting in the game. Because injuries happen, they throw me in and it’s a great first impression.

He said he Maliek Collins”>Authentic http://www.officialcowboyslockerroom.com/elite-maliek-collins-jersey”>Maliek Collins Jersey saw it as an extension of the outfielders’ bonding move in which Hicks and Aaron Judge leap as high as they can and bump each other. Sometimes Brett Gardner gets in on the act, but he doesn’t have their hops.

We all have things with each other, Hicks said. It’s just kind of how our team chemistry is.

If Gregory is reinstated and can stay out of off-field trouble, he could bring tantalizing top-tier talent to the Cowboys pass rush.

You’re talking about a lot of players that are going to start seeing the end of their careers, which I think is significant.

DeCamillis teamed up with Jags assistant special teams coach Mike Mallory to grade 110 draft-eligible players based exclusively on potential special-teams prowess. He points out that franchises that count on extensive special teams action for grooming players to eventually become offensive or defensive starters will no longer have that avenue, sans kickoffs.

DeCamillis referenced Jaguars linebacker Blair Brown, who is set to begin receiving significantdefensive snaps in 2018 based upon gradual improvement in practice. Brown, a 2017 fifth-round pick from Ohio University, wouldn’t have gotten that opportunity without first sticking on special teams.

Aaron Rodgers: I don’t know why you’d cut Jordy and bring in Dez

Aaron Rodgers was unhappy when the Packers released Jordy Nelson, and it doesn’t make sense to the quarterback that the team would replace Nelson with another high-priced receiver.

The Packers cut Nelson, who was scheduled to make $9.25 million in base salary and count $12.5 million against the cap, to free up $10.2 million in cap space. The Cowboys made a similar move with Dez Bryant, who was set to make $12.5 million and count $16.5 million against the cap. His release saves Dallas $8.5 million against the cap.

“Well, we like young receivers, so I’m assuming that’s the way they’re going to keep going,” Rodgers said. “I don’t know why you’d cut Jordy and bring in Dez, but he’s a talented player. He’s going to end up somewhere. If he ends up here, we’ll obviously welcome him with open arms and get him up to speed as quick as possible.”

Bell said in March he likely would follow what he did last year, softening on his original threat to miss games or retire in the absence of an extension.

The Steelers have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal with Bell. Otherwise, he will play under the one-year, $14.54 million franchise tender.

As the workweek commences, it’s time for a new edition of the #PFTPM podcast. And with plenty of things to discuss, Monday’s edition consumed 45 minutes.

Attorney: Bucks’ Sterling Brown to sue Milwaukee Police Department

Game Youth Taywan Taylor Jersey The attorney for Milwaukee Bucks rookie Sterling Brown said the guard plans to file a lawsuit against the Milwaukee Police Department after officers used a stun gun on him — without provocation, according to a report — during an arrest in January.

Plans for the lawsuit were announced as body-camera footage of the Jan. 26 incident was scheduled to be released Wednesday, attorney Mark Thomsen told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Tuesday.

Police officers used a stun gun on Brown and arrested the Jacksonville Jaguars”>http://www.officialusasports.com/sports/nfl-jerseys/jacksonville-jaguars”>Jacksonville Jaguars Youth jersey then-22-year-old guard during questioning over a parking violation in a Walgreens parking lot at about 2 a.m. on Jan. 26.

The officers involved in the incident are the subject of an internal investigation. Brown was not charged after his arrest for resisting or obstructing an officer.

There’s going to be a video that’s going to come out soon, in the next couple of weeks, involving the department, Assistant Police Chief Michael Brunson Sr. told a church congregation on Sunday, according to WITI-TV. And I’m going to be honest with you, we’re going to need your support during the challenges.

The Bucks signed the 6-foot-6 guard from SMU last summer in a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, who selected him in the second round of the 2017 draft. He averaged 4.0 points and 2.6 rebounds this season.

Moore received interest from the Chiefs and Texans early in free agency.

Houston opted for Brandon Weeden, who was familiar with its offense, and then added Joe Webb and Stephen Morris. Kansas City signed Chad Henne and Matt McGloin.

Moore, 33, became a free agent in March after playing out his two-year, $3.5 million deal with the Dolphins.

He played four games with two starts last season for the Dolphins, completing 61.4 percent of his passes for 861 yards with four touchdowns and five interceptions.

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger left Tuesday night’s game in Oakland after being hit on the left wrist by a Trevor Cahill pitch in the fourth inning.

The team said X-rays were negative and Haniger was listed as day-to-day.

Steady as it goes (.200-or-lower FBA): Brad Brach, Aroldis Chapman, Tyler Clippard, Kelvin Herrera, Fernando Rodney, Blake Treinen, Arodys Vizcaino, Brad Ziegler, Jeurys Familia, Sean Doolittle, Brandon Morrow, Corey Knebel, Bud Norris, Brad Boxberger and Hunter Strickland

No real reason for concern (.201-.255, but no better FBA looming): Craig Kimbrel, Justin Anderson, Edwin Diaz, Keone Kela, Raisel Iglesias, Felipe Vazquez and Brad Hand

Proceed with caution (.201-.255, with better FBA looming): Cody Allen (Andrew Miller), Shane Greene (Joe Jimenez), Ken Giles (Chris Devenski), Hector Neris (Seranthony Dominguez), Wade Davis (Adam Ottavino) and Kenley Jansen (Josh Fields)

Carter, who led the National League with 41 home runs while with the Brewers in 2016, last played in the majors on July 4, 2017, for the New York Yankees. He hit .201 with eight homers in 62 games for New York.

Game Youth Fabian Johnson Jersey The Twins lost first baseman Joe Mauer to the disabled list last weekend with a neck strain and concussion-like symptoms. Regular designated hitter Logan Morrison has started the past four games at first base.

San Francisco left-hander Madison Bumgarner, on the 60-day disabled list with a fractured fifth metacarpal, faced hitters Tuesday and is set to be sent out on a rehab assignment. Bumgarner threw 30 pitches in a simulated game, resting for five minutes in between two intervals of 15. The Giants (24-25) have been without their ace since spring training.

Really good work, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Used all his pitches and he’s good to go. Now it’s just a case if he comes out of this fine tomorrow which we anticipate him doing, and then he’ll go to (Triple-A) Sacramento on Saturday and that will start his rehab.

Former Hokie DeAngelo Hall retires from NFL

Former Virginia Tech defensive back DeAngelo Hall is officially retiring from the NFL. The three-time Pro Bowler played 14 seasons in the NFL, 10 of those with the Washington Redskins. Hall was drafted by the Falcons 8th overall in 2004 out of Virginia Tech, and then played for the Raiders before moving on to Washington, where he started every game between 2010 and 2013. He recorded 43 interceptions during his career, including four in one game against the Chicago Bears in 2010. Hall also notched five touchdowns and recovered 15 fumbles in the NFL. He has the most fumble return yards of any player in NFL history, with 328.

Allen is a big quarterback at 6’5 and 237 pounds. He has a howitzer of an arm, and he is quick for his size. He ran a faster 40 at the combine (4.75 seconds) than either of the quarterbacks taken ahead of him.

Elite Youth Jake Arrieta Jersey At least initially, they want him to line up at safety and concentrate on being a leader in their secondary.

We talked about that when we were speaking to him during the process, Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. We told him that we really do value 鈥?as you know 鈥?we value versatility, but we also understand that a guy needs to have basically one home. He needs to understand and master that one home, which is safety for Tyrann. Then, in different packages that are played less of the time, maybe he does something else.

Game Womens Phil Kessel Jersey When you watch him in Derek Newton Womens Jersey these sessions that we’ve had, you can see a guy that’s very instinctive, that moves well and that can probably do a few different things for us, but we’re going to start him at safety and let him hone in on that. Then eventually we will do other things in other packages with him.

In the buildup to the draft, Mayfield granted Sports Illustrated access for a lengthy behind-the-scenes series written by reporter Robert Klemko and had a film crew following him for a nine-episode documentary, Next Level: Behind Baker, created and produced by Identifi, which describes itself as an innovative sports, talent and media company.

Reggie Wayne pitching in with Colts wide receivers

The Colts drafted a pair of wide receivers and they’ll get a chance to learn from one of the best pass catchers in franchise history this offseason.

Reggie Wayne has joined the team as a volunteer coach working with wide receivers coach Kevin Patullo. He was on the field Monday as the Colts kicked off the second phase of their offseason program and head coach Frank Reich, who was once Wayne’s position coach in Indianapolis, thinks he’ll do well as a coach.

Perhaps the Eagles believe their defense can continue to function sans Kendricks with the help of linebackers like Bradham and Jordan Hicks. Perhaps they don’t like the lack of turnovers Kendricks creates. He has had zero interceptions since 2013 and hasn’t forced a fumble since 2015.

Perhaps they simply believe Kendricks is overpaid. He’s set to earn $7.6 million in 2018 and more than $16 million over the next two years.

The selection of linebacker Josh Sweat in the fourth round of the draft could give the Eagles their eventual replacement for Kendricks, too, so we can probably expect some of those trade rumors to re-emerge at some point this offseason.

“I was at an airport,” Highsmith said Monday at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Luncheon Club, via the Canton Repository. “UCLA’s volleyball team was in front of me. You heard so much about Rosen. He’s this or that. We all know how people talk.

“So I asked one of the volleyball coaches, ‘What’s Rosen like?’ He said, ‘Aaaa, you should probably ask his girlfriend. She’s one of the players. She’s over there.’

“I’m like, ‘All right coach. That’s good enough.’ . . . I don’t know what all this means, but there was something about him that bothered me.”

Surely, Highsmith based his conclusion on more than an airport encounter with a volleyball coach. The bottom line is that, after Highsmith and the Browns did all the work they needed to do, one o the team’s top executives sensed “something about [Rosen] that bothered [him].”

Maybe, in time, more facts will emerge regarding the basis for Highsmith’s conclusion. For now, the candor regarding Rosen, who was taken 10th overall by the Cardinals, is definitely an eyebrow raiser.colts_105

A zoo in New England paid off a Super Bowl bet with a cute baby goat named Foles

Think of the consequences to the NFL if a player pays the ultimate price. Congress instantly would convene hearings and commence drafting legislation. Debates would emerge about the morality of watching football (those debates already have popped up from time to time regarding Mark Recchi Youth jersey chronic the health risks of the game). Eventually, a federal commission with the power to oversee and regulate football could emerge, which likely is the we-know-what’s-best-for-us NFL’s worst-case business scenario.

So even if avoiding a fatality isn’t the impetus for the ongoing examination of the kickoff, it should be. And it’s no surprise that the NFL won’t say we don’t want someone to die on the field when addressing its concerns about the play. The fact that people in the league routinely call it the most dangerous play in the game has to give the league’s lawyers nearly as many chest pains as an FBI raid on their offices, apartments, and/or hotel rooms. If people like Murphy were to admit that the league fears a fatality 鈥?and if a fatality were to happen 鈥?it could be game over, literally.

They also signed Mason McKendrick out of John Carroll. He was a two-time Division III All-American while recording 236 tackles during his collegiate career.

Robert Thomas Kids Jersey According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Eagles are signing former Colts running back Matt Jones after a workout.

Jones was cut by the Colts after the draft. The former third-round pick by Washington had his best season in 2016, when he had 99 carries for 460 yards and three touchdowns, with a pair of 100-yard games.

The question with this year’s group is can a Big 12 quarterback be successful in the NFL

Snellings: It was once considered a given that Cleveland would represent the Eastern Conference in the Finals for the fourth straight year, but the Cavaliers struggled in the second half of the season and have continued to scuffle in the playoffs. With that said, I still expect them to hold on through this round and also win their second-round matchup against the winner of the Raptors-Wizards.

Windhorst: I don’t make predictions. But I’m going to watch how the Pelicans handle themselves Saturday; that’s an interesting set of circumstances.

Spears: Not sure if it’s a bold prediction since the Raptors are the higher seed, but Toronto will finally figure out a way to knock off James to make it to the Eastern Conference finals. We The North finally gets through with a big series from DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.

Mayfield comes from the wide open Oklahoma offense played by many in that conference. It has not translated into NFL success, though it should be noted the Chiefs are banking on Patrick Mahomes II out of Texas Tech to be their franchise quarterback. There is also concern that Allen did not dominate the Mountain West last year.

So Ainge phoned Shane Larkin, a player the Celtics had liked heading into the 2013 draft, and inquired about his availability after a solid season with Spanish club Baskonia. Larkin had recently signed an offer sheet with rival club Barcelona, but when Baskonia matched, it opened a 48-hour window in which Larkin also could explore opportunities outside of Europe.

“Danny called me,” Larkin said, “and was like, ‘We have a player that may have some injury issues, so we might have an opening for a player to come and play some minutes. How long do you have?'”

Among all youngsters, Tolvanen has all the right components for me to get excited about him as a fantasy hockey asset. In the skill department, he owns the record for scoring by an 18-year-old in the KHL, beating the marks set by Evgeny Kuznetsov, Vladimir Tarasenko and fellow dynasty-stash Kirill Kaprizov. As for opportunity, he got to finish out the year with the Predators and is currently enjoying the NHL playoffs from the press box as a way to acclimate to the North American game. I think he has a relatively clear path to top-six minutes with the Preds next season by bumping Craig Smith or Kevin Fiala.canucks_1164
