After a year of speculation that Martavis Bryant could be traded, he finally has been.

The Steelers have traded Bryant to the Raiders in exchange for a third-round draft pick, No. 79 overall, which the Raiders previously acquired in a trade with the Cardinals.

Bryant is an incredibly talented big-play receivers who’s one of the most dangerous downfield threats in the league when he’s all-in. But Bryant has a history of failing drug tests and angering his coaches with subpar effort, and it remains to be seen whether the Raiders can get the most out of him.

Robert, whose relationship with Budda Sports Illustrated profiled in a 2016 story, would watch Budda’s games from prison with guards and other inmates. He finally was able to watch in person during Budda’s junior season, when he played his way into consensus All-America honors.

I learned life can be taken away from you in two ways: death or prison, Robert Baker told SI at the time. I’m lucky it was prison, because death was around the corner.

Budda Baker, 22, made the Pro Bowl as a special-teams member in his rookie season, after the Cardinals made him their second-round pick in the 2017 draft. He finished the season with 74 tackles, two Womens Tucker Poolman Jersey forced fumbles and seven pass deflections.Lindsey Vonn has set her sights on a new athlete.

Gordon had a rocky rookie year that included six fumbles, but has been more productive over the last two years. He rushed 254 times for 997 yards in 2016 and bumped that up to 284 carries for 1,105 yards last year. He also caught 99 passes and scored 24 total touchdowns over the last two years.

Austin Ekeler served as the No. 2 back for the Chargers last year and the team could add further depth at the position this week by plucking a player from what’s generally considered to be a strong crop of backs in the draft.

I would say that was a bad pick, not a bust, the executive said. He went to that [Jets] team that was veteran-heavy and was a strong team that ran the ball and played defense. When Sanchez had to take the next step 鈥?he never got better.

Brandon Beane: Josh Allen Jersey is a good kid

One of the topics of the day on Friday was whether the release of old tweets from Josh Allen that featured racially insensitive language would cause him to fall in the draft.

The answer was that Allen didn’t drop much, if at all, before the Bills traded up to take the quarterback seventh overall. General Manager Brandon Beane said on Thursday night that he spoke to Allen about the tweets before the draft and came away satisfied that Allen is a really good kid.

We don’t condone anything. We did our due diligence on him. Beane said, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. I know there are things I would be disappointed in myself that I did at 14 or 15.

I’m also hoping that they can get a guy ready for this season, he said. I’m still not thinking about these guys need to be brought along so slowly. You don’t want to throw him into the fire if he’s not ready, but I think these kids are probably prepared better than yesteryear and 鈥?

Forty-nine years after Super Bowl III.You cannot grade on a curve when it comes to selecting a quarterback in the NFL draft. If the Giants are to take one with the No. 2 pick Thursday night, they would have to do just that 鈥?lower their standards just enough to restock the most important position on the field.

The Browns Eric Lindros Jersey currently own the first, fourth, 33rd, 35th and 64th picks. There hasn’t been much talk about using either of the first-round picks on a corner, although there’s always the possibility of a trade that brings players at that position onto their radar.

T.J. Carrie, E.J. Gaines and Terrance Mitchell all signed with the Browns in free agency and 2017 fourth-round pick Howard Wilson is coming back from a knee injury that wiped out his rookie season. Briean Boddy-Calhoun is also on Cleveland’s cornerback depth chart.

Taylor joined the Browns in a trade with the Dolphins in 2016 and signed a three-year extension before the year was out. He’s played in 31 games over the last two seasons and intercepted three passes.

While Giancarlo Stanton did his best to assimilate into the Yankees ‘ clubhouse this spring, he also took time to share knowledge.

Top prospect Gleyber Torres , whom the Yankees called up for the firs time Sunday, was briefly one of Stanton’s pupils, the pair spending time hitting together and talking about their craft in Tampa.

Stanton said Torres’ swing stood out to him because of its similarity to the stroke of Javy Baez, the Cubs’ 25-year-old star second baseman.

“It’s a lot like — really like Baez a little bit,” Stanton said before Torres made his debut vs. the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium . “I like how there’s a lot going on but it’s very precise. Some people are short and (don’t have) that much movement but he’s got some cool action in there and some pop at the end. It’s cool.”

LaMarcus Aldridge, the All-Star forward/center in his second season with the Spurs, tells KweséESPN that his good relationship with Udoka goes back to their time playing together in Portland: “We got cool when he came [on] with the Blazers.

“He’s a good guy, works hard so I just got close to him then. He’s been kind of like the middle man, trying to help me and how I feel [get] across to the coaching staff. He’s trying to help me feel more comfortable every year.

“He’s been the guy that I work with every summer since I’ve been here. He’s been a big part of me getting more comfortable.”

Although Quinn isn’t one to publicly evaluate his team’s needs, the Lions are without an obvious starting replacement following the offseason departure of center Travis Swanson. With a couple of interior linemen meriting consideration when the Lions are scheduled to be on the clock in the first round, Quinn noted he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of going that direction.

“If he’s a good football player and he’s at or near the top of our board, I have no problem taking an interior offensive lineman,” Quinn said.

The Lions are changing up blocking schemes this year under new position coach Jeff Davidson. Whether that means an emphasis on zone or man blocking, Quinn isn’t saying, but he could have options for either scheme at pick No. 20.

UTEP’s Will Hernandez is the power blocker. The 348-pound, first-team All American is deceptively athletic for his size, but his calling card is going to be bullying opposing defensive linemen in close quarters.

Report: Saquon Barkley Jersey agents don’t want him to go to Cleveland

The Browns don’t exactly have a great track record of developing the players they choose in the NFL draft, and the people around one of this year’s top prospects would prefer for him not to be next.

Elite Mens Tyrann Mathieu Jersey They’re very tall and athletic, so just move the ball offensively and get great shots, Rozier said after Game 1. Defensively, just play long, show your arms. Giannis [Antetokounmpo], he loves to push the ball. Drew Bledsoe makes tough shots and we just try to limit them to what they’re good at by just being long off the ball and showing our presence and I felt like we did a great job with that the majority of the game.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens was asked Wednesday about Bledsoe’s comment, and said, I mean, I heard that. Our team is just focused on Game 3. A reporter playfully asked if Stevens didn’t want to bite on the question and Stevens responded with silence until the next question came.

If Bledsoe really doesn’t know who Rozier is he may want to figure it out going into Game 3 on Friday night in Milwaukee. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Rozier is 7-of 12 in this series when guarded by Bledsoe. Bledsoe is 4-of-13 when guarded by Rozier.

Compounding Bledsoe’s frustration is the fact that the Bucks were out-hustled throughout the Jesse James Womens Jersey game. Bucks players and coaches noted that they were out-worked, with Bledsoe acknowledging that he could see the slippage occurring as early as the first quarter.

Those three will continue to work with Curt Menefee and Jimmy Johnson on FOX’s Sunday morning pregame show. That show is broadcast from Los Angeles, while the Thursday night show will air from New York.

Although FOX hasn’t said who its Thursday night broadcast team will be, the favorites appear to be Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews, the No. 1 Sunday team.

This is why I call him a lottery ticket. If Bridgewater returns to the form he showed in his first two years with the Vikings, the starting job could be his this season. If he struggles, the Jets could cut him before the season and only pay him $1 million. There is no risk here for the Jets.

If the draft pick and Bridgewater falter in camp, McCown would keep the job, and the Jets would cross their fingers that the 39-year-old can build off a career year in 2017.

We really like not only what Josh brings to the field as a player, but more importantly what he brings from an intangible standpoint, Maccagnan said. He’s exceptional in that area.

Seahawks to sign Dontae Johnson Jersey

Elite Womens Trevor Cahill Jersey When the Seahawks face off with the 49ers this season, they’ll be playing against one of their former starting cornerbacks in Richard Sherman.

The 49ers will be in a similar position now that the Seahawks have agreed to terms on a deal with a former member of their secondary. Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that Dontae Johnson is signing with Seattle.

If Tirico becomes the main host, it would further establish him as the network’s foremost presenter, with Bob Costas basically retired from NBC with an emeritus role.
Tirico already Jesse James Womens Jersey had taken over for Costas on the NFL, but the role, while out front at the site of each week’s game, was limited in terms of its scope.

Now, if the move with Patrick occurs, it would be Tirico who would lead the show. Patrick worked with his analysts, Rodney Harrison and Tony Dungy, in NBC’s Stamford studios. It is unclear where Tirico would be located if he is, in fact, the main host.

As for Patrick, with his contract up, his future at the network is up in the air. Though even if NBC goes through with not renewing him on Sundays, it seems plausible his licensing agreement with NBC Sports Network to simulcast his radio show could continue. Patrick was not a part of NBC’s Olympic coverage in PyeongChang in February after being one of the main hosts during previous recent Games.

Fred Warner’s length and ability to match up against multiple positions in coverage will make him a highly coveted sub-package player early in his career. The trick will be defining a long-term position or role for Warner that keeps him on the field as an effective player for all three downs. Some of his mechanics have to be cleaned up, but the athletic base is eye-popping as a prospect.

Mariners: The Mariners will likely tab LHP Ariel Miranda to make his season debut against the Astros. This will be his seventh career start against Houston, and he is 1-2 with a 4.30 ERA against the World Series champions.

The defending champs won only seven of their final 17 regular-season contests. Some players attributed the poor finish to the Warriors’ having nothing to play for in the final weeks because they had the No. 2 seed locked up. Others admitted to playing timid, with an emphasis on avoiding injuries.

Green, who had 12 points, 8 rebounds and a game-high 11 assists Saturday, cautioned onlookers to not be fooled by how the Warriors finished the regular season.

We know what we’re capable of, he said. You know, there has been games that we’ve won without Steph — a series. Same as Kevin, myself. We’ve won games without myself. We’ve won games without Klay. We’ve won games without our head coach. So we’re primed for this. I think a lot of people have tend to forgot what we’re capable of. We know. We’re going to show that.

Kevin Durant played the basketball equivalent of quarterback Saturday, running the offense while contributing 24 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Klay Thompson scored a game-high 27 points.

“Days Of Our Lives” has nothing on the drama escalating at 1 Patriot Place this offseason.

As Rob Gronkowski’s future in New England grows more uncertain by the day, a certain thorn in Bill Belichick’s side may have triggered a public spat between him and the tight end, according to the Boston Herald. A source told the paper Belichick called out Gronkowski, 28, last season for being the latest Patriot to utilize the controversial TB12 method, heralded by longtime Tom Brady confidant Alex Guerrero.

Belichick reportedly yanked Guerrero’s credentials and on-field clearance last year, after the fitness guru had unlimited access for an undisclosed period of time. The oft-injured Gronkowski previously praised Guerrero’s methods and Brady’s pliability, long before tension between the Pro Bowler and Patriots coaching staff boiled over.

Carson had already made two Pro Bowls when Taylor arrived in 1981 and the linebackers began terrorizing opposing quarterbacks. They made seven straight Pro Bowls together on their way to winning Super Bowl XXV and a spot in the Hall of Fame for each.

The summit will include conversations about mass incarceration, policing and sentencing reform.

A number of players met with lawmakers in Massachusetts and other states this week to push for policy changes at the state level.

Last season, the Brewers struck out 1,571 times, the most by any team in a season in the live ball era (since 1920), but through 16 games this season, the Orioles are on pace for 1,792. Chris Tillman has struggled on the mound, posting an 11.91 ERA through three starts. He has allowed at least four earned runs in each start. Alex Cobb’s debut did not inspire much confidence, either; he allowed seven earned runs before exiting in the fourth inning. — McCarthy

Despite some struggle from their rotation, the A’s have kept their heads above water thanks to the long ball, ranking second in the AL in homers hit (trailing the hard-charging Angels), with DH Khris Davis and third baseman Matt Chapman leading the way with five apiece and Jed Lowrie chipping in another four. — Kahrl

When you talk to teams around the league that have been in touch with the Giants, they no longer believe that the Giants are going to be trading Odell Beckham Jr., Schefter said. There has been a shift here in thinking. I think that there was some thinking across the league that he was available, and I think that the Giants’ actions and words dictated that he was available. But when you talk to some of these teams now, they no longer believe he’s gonna be dealt.

We’ve reduced the number of returns, Murphy said, via Kevin Seifert of ESPN, but we haven’t really done anything to make the play safer.

Murphy, a member of the competition committee, said the league will call on special teams coordinators and head coaches in the next few weeks. The group will receive a clear edict: If you don’t make changes to make it safer, we’re going to do away with it. It’s that serious. It’s by far the most dangerous play in the game.

Murphy said even touchbacks have proved a concussion risk.

Even though Authentic Michael Fulmer Jersey there’s no return, [the committee is] looking at what kind of things you can do to make sure people were aware that there’s not even a return, Murphy said. You see this, too: One player lets up, the player covering lets up, and one of the blockers comes over and, you know. That creates problems when you’ve got one player going half speed and the other one full speed.
