Vince Biegel ready to put his best foot forward in 2018

Vince Biegel isn’t new to the Packers, but he feels like he’s getting a new start. With both feet healthy and playing for a new defensive coordinator, the outside linebacker is ready to get 2018 off on a better foot.

Biegel, a fourth-round pick in 2017, injured his right foot in his first practice with the Packers. Doctors determined he needed surgery to repair a Jones fracture. That was his Welcome to the NFL moment.

We stuck to our game plan, Marner said. We got the puck in our hands quickly. We used our speed.

The Bruins’ power play -5 for 10 in the first two games — got its first opportunity early in the third only to see Pastrnak hit the post.

The Maple Leafs sealed it with 3:35 left when Marleau scored his second of the night on a 2-on-1 rush for his 70th career playoff goal.

We were on it all game, Marleau said. We had our legs, we were playing the right way.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns aren’t scheduled to bring Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick in for a visit either.

Teams have to conclude such visits by next Wednesday, and since they’re not scheduled yet, it’s hard to imagine them setting one up now. Of course, it’s also hard to imagine why you wouldn’t have contact with three players ostensibly in play with their second first-round pick.

They also didn’t conduct private workouts with any of the three, and didn’t interview Barkley as one of the 60 15-minute interviews at the Scouting Combine.

If they’re not interested in Fitzpatrick, it might only be because they’ve invested heavily in the secondary, acquiring Damarious Randall, T.J. Carrie and E.J. Gaines. But it’s difficult to determine what the plan is now, based on the travel plans they’ve made.

Boston was left fuming after center Riley Nash, who returned to the lineup after suffering an ear laceration on March 31, was ruled to have put the puck directly over the glass for a delay of game penalty with just over three minutes left in the first, even though replays suggested otherwise.

Toronto, which was 1 for 7 with the man advantage through the first two games, made the Bruins pay just 7 seconds later when van Riemsdyk scored his second goal of the series at 17:05 to give the Leafs their first lead of the series.

Report: Bengals to host Buccaneers in Week 8

According to a number of sources, the Bengals will host the Buccaneers in Week 8 of the NFL season at Paul Brown Stadium.

The Buccaneers accidentally released their full home schedule on their website, though it has since been removed. And, now their full schedule is out their on the internet.

The Bengals last played the Buccaneers in the regular season in a wild 2014 game that ended 14-13. That win helped the Bengals make it to the playoffs. All-time, the Bengals have a 4-7 record against Tampa Bay.

We’re optimistic that it’s going to be maybe on the shorter side of things, Boone said. It looks like he’s kind of passed every test so far.

Bird said earlier this month that he believed he’d be back to playing baseball sometime in May. His hope is that he won’t have a long rehab stint and will be back with the big-league team next month.

No, Labriola said when asked if franchise tagging Bryant is an option. Too much money for a receiver on a team that already has Antonio Brown.

Pittsburgh’s fourth round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Bryant was an immediate home run threat, averaging 21.1 yards per reception as a rookie while catching eight touchdown passes. Bryant was just as dynamic in 2015, scoring seven total touchdowns while amassing 194 all-purpose yards in Pittsburgh’s playoff loss to the eventual Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos. Bryant’s career was temporarily halted in 2016 when he was suspended for the entire season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Bryant was not full reinstated back into the NFL until the first week of the 2017 preseason.

Jose Calderon, who has never made it out of the first round before, went 0-for-3. Jeff Green, whose career scoring average of 11 points per game in the playoffs coming into Sunday was already underperforming compared to his career regular-season scoring average of 13.2 points, scored zero points on 0-for-7 shooting.

Former Giants G.M. sees quick turnaround, with Eli Manning at the helm

Perhaps no one knows Eli Manning or Dave Gettleman better than former Giants General Manager Ernie Accorsi.

So reading between the lines of some of Accorsi’s comments last night, it’s easy to arrange the tea leaves in a manner which suggests the Giants may not be inclined to use the No. 2 overall pick on a quarterback at all.

Miami on the other hand, was the fifth-slowest team in the league at 97.8 possessions per 48 minutes.

In the playoffs, pace generally slows down and teams need to execute in the half court. That seemed to be the case in the first half, as the Heat held the Sixers to 56 points on just 39 percent shooting from the field.

Then Brown inserted Ersan Ilyasova into the lineup at center in place of starter Amir Johnson to start the second half, hoping to create more space and unbalance the frontcourt matchups.

The Chargers did select Manning first overall, but he was traded to the New York Giants later that day.

SI.com reported that Barkley never considered that option.

Sports Illustrated said in a statement to USA TODAY Sports that it continues to stand by its reporting in response to the Miale’s comments. 

Messages left with Miale by USA TODAY Sports were not immediately returned. The agency also counts Browns coach Hue Jackson as a client. 

This one is pretty simple: With Embiid on the court this season, the Sixers’ shot quality increased from practically every nook and cranny of the court, according to Second Spectrum’s quantified shot quality metric (qSQ). Of the 11 primary shooting spots that Second Spectrum tracks, Philly gets better shots at 10 of those shooting zones with Embiid on the court. That’s especially true from 3-point range, where the Sixers get better looks from all five spots with Embiid in the game.

Jets land their Plan B: Intriguing Bridgewater, thrilled McCown

The Jets saw top free agent quarterback target Kirk Cousins go to the Vikings on Tuesday for a record-breaking contract. They moved on to their fallback option agreeing on a deal to bring back Josh McCown and another deal to sign former Vikings first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater.

The Jets were all-in on Cousins and made him a big offer on Monday, believed to be more than the three-year, $84 million fully guaranteed deal he got from the Vikings. But once he decided to visit Minnesota first, the Jets knew they were out. Cousins can officially sign the contract on Wednesday when the new league year opens.

Bridgewater is a fascinating signing. Since suffering a gruesome knee injury in August 2016, Bridgewater has not played other than some garbage time at the end of Week 15 in December.

The 25-year-old could be a steal for the Jets if he recovers from the knee injury. He was a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2014 and made the Pro Bowl in 2015, a season in which the Vikings went to the playoffs.

The two sat next to each other for the match, and were seen shaking hands and chatting while taking in the action.

Beckham, 42, who is bringing a team of his own to Miami, was also seen talking with the president of the Paris team, Nasser Al Khelaifi, and his former Manchester United teammate Gary Neville.

Hadid, 21, was in the City of Light for Paris Fashion Week.

Both of the stars also posted footage of the game on their Instagram stories.

NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. and DJ Snake were also seen at the match.

With Melky Cabrera at the plate, Clippard threw a wild pitch and then issued another walk to load the bases. Then, with Jose Abreu up, Clippard got ahead, 0-2 and Sanchez went to the mound for visit number five.

Christian Kirk credits liver shakes with helping keep him healthy

Texas A&M receiver Christian Kirk insists the liver shakes he drinks for recovery don’t taste bad. Of course, he doesn’t say they taste good either.

The fact that it also contains protein, spinach, vegetables and fruit makes you just want to run out and get one, doesn’t it?

I didn’t miss any games my whole entire college career, but my freshman year about game five or six, that’s when the hits really started taking a toll and my body was just kind of getting used to it, Kirk said. So I’d be dinged up here and there, and I just had to find some way to be able to get 100 percent. So that’s when the acupuncture, the cold tub, the cupping and changing my diet gave me a lot more energy, the stretching. I really just dove into that and pretty much became obsessed with it, and it helped me a lot and really credit it to not missing any games when I was at A&M.

Kirk already is a pro’s pro. He measured 5-10 3/8 at the NFL Scouting Combine, so other than questioning whether Kirk is too small to play as an outside receiver, scouts are sold on him.

Over the weekend, ESPN reported the final four teams for Cousins are expected to be the Jets, Vikings, Broncos and Cardinals. A surprise team could still emerge, but at the moment those four look like the biggest contenders. We are taking a look at the pros and cons of each team as they prepare to woo Cousins.

The argument for: The Jets have the most financial flexibility to go after Cousins with a big offer. The projections have been $30 million per season and about $90 million in the first three years. The Jets can handle that with all of the cap space they have plus the lack of big contracts coming up for the team. They are going to benefit here from the poor drafting they did between 2012-14. They don’t have any of their own free agents who will command long-term, big-money deals until Leonard Williams, who does not become a free agent until 2020. That gives them cap flexibility not only this year, but for the next few years.

The Jets will also argue that they are a team on the rise after tearing down their roster last year. They will make Cousins feel wanted, something he reportedly desires after a few tough years in Washington.

Nick Foles gets payment today that has been guaranteed for a year

The fifth day of the league year typically triggers plenty of salary guarantees and roster bonuses in player contracts. (For that reason, you’ll see urgent tweets that make these known-for-a-year transactions seem like breaking news.)

For Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, it’s been known since he rejoined the Eagles as a free agent that he has a $3 million roster bonus due today. It’s not a reward for winning the Super Bowl. It’s a payment that was negotiated when he signed with the Eagles last year, and it became fully guaranteed five days after the signed the contract on March 13, 2017, based on a breakdown of the deal obtained by PFT last year.

He may not have a say in the matter, and he could end up being relegated to continuing to be the No. 1 guy until Wentz is ready to go. The extra game or two (or more) of film could come in handy next year, when Foles definitely becomes a free agent again, unless he signs a new contract with the Eagles before then.

Regardless, the contract he signed a year ago gives him $3 million now. Nothing he accomplished in the past year would have changed that.

The Colts have slow-played things so far, but they have also brought Ravens center Ryan Jensen in for a visit and signed Raiders defensive end Denico Autry.

Whether it’s a tight end or wide receiver, the Saints need another reliable target to pair with Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. That’s why they made a serious run at TE Jimmy Graham before the money got too high for them and why they lined up a visit with WR Jordy Nelson before he chose the Raiders. The Saints especially need a possession receiver they can trust on third downs. Although they had the No. 2 offense in the NFL overall, they were a very uncharacteristic 19th in third-down conversion rate. — Mike Triplett

The Bucs signed three defensive linemen, Beau Allen, Mitch Unrein and Vinny Curry. And while they still need more help on the edge, that’s likely not going to come until the draft due to what’s available on the market. At cornerback, they re-signed Brent Grimes, but it’s a one-year deal, and they still need someone to start opposite him if Vernon Hargreaves is going to continue lining up at nickeback. E.J. Gaines is still available. At safety, they re-signed Keith Tandy to a one-year deal and picked up the option on Chris Conte’s deal, but they need a true upgrade opposite second-year er Justin Evans. There are still a lot of quality ers available, including Tre Boston, Eric Reid, Morgan Burnett and Ron Parker. — Jenna Laine

Julius Randle’s 36 lead Lakers past LeBron’s Cavs, 127-113

“It was something I always knew I could do,” Randle said. “I’m not surprised, but it feels good.”

I.T. PROFESSIONAL: Thomas also shone in his first game against the Cavs since they ended their brief attempt to replace Kyrie Irving with the undersized scoring machine.

Stephen Curry sprained his tricky ankle again last Thursday and hasn’t played since. The uncertainty about his availability moving forward caused him to slide a few slots.

Kyrie Irving sat out last Monday with a knee injury, returned to play for the rest of the week, then missed the second half of Sunday’s game and publicly stated that he might sit out for a while to rest. There seems to be pushback from the Boston Celtics on this front, and it’s unknown how much time he may miss, but the uncertainty cost him about 15 slots in the rankings.

Ricky Rubio flashed star-level production last month in the early part of the Utah Jazz’s winning streak, but then got hurt and came back rusty. He’s back to flashing greatness again, and it’s enough to get him a raise up into the top 60.

Eichel says he’d like to start playing as soon as possible. But he adds it’s premature to pick a specific game. He says the timetable will depend on his conditioning level and how his ankle responds to the lengthy on-ice session Tuesday.

The Sabres are off until Thursday, when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs. Buffalo sits last in the Eastern Conference standings and is all but mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.

Eichel has been skating on his own for the past 10 days. He’s missed 14 games since he was hurt in a 4-2 win at Boston on Feb. 10.

Eichel still leads the Sabres with 22 goals and 53 points despite playing just 55 games.

The Sabres recalled goalie Linus Ullmark from the minors. Coach Phil Housley Cheap Bike Jerseys For Men says the promotion is based on merit, and he plans to have Ullmark start in one of Cheap College Jerseys Buffalo’s upcoming games.

He said with no featured sets, it can still lead to a night like he had against the LA Clippers on Friday, when he had 15 points on 6 for 15 shooting. Then he added, It can go like that or it can go like the Laker game.

Smith didn’t know if the change was a direct reaction to his poor night against the Lakers.

My performance has been steady — it has not been great, it’s been a lot of bad shooting nights — so it’s been a pretty steady pace, Smith said.

When asked again about the timing of the change, Lue was tight-lipped.

I decided to do it today, Lue said. Next question.

The teams then traded goals early in the third, with Meier scoring on the power play when he deflected a shot from Mikkel Boedker and Zetterberg answering for Detroit off a nice pass from Nyquist.

That goal moved Zetterberg into sole possession of fifth place for the Red Wings with his 336th, breaking a tie with Ted Lindsay.

Ted means a lot to me, so passing him and doing it in this building too where I played my first NHL game is really special, Zetterberg said.

We need to understand there is a certain type of game that’s being played right now, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. We’ve given the opposition too many gifts. Those are mental breakdowns that have to be corrected.

He confirmed the deal in an Instagram post Monday.

IM BACK?? I would like to thank the entire @seahawks organization from Paul Allen to John Schneider and Pete Carrol for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to continue living out my dream. Finally thank you to the city of Seattle for accepting me with open arms. It’s time to get back on TOP!

“People don’t understand, I was still hurt with my Achilles injury, so now I’m Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal finally healthy. I was able to really just revamp my whole self, just Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys focus on basketball and be able to just work out. So when I was in China, I just felt like I was at Oak Hill [Academy] again, just working on my game and trying to get to that level again.”

Marchand (3g, 2a) helps Bruins beat Red Wings 6-5 in OT

Brad Marchand has become Mr. Overtime for the Bruins.

Not just this season, but in franchise history.

Anthony Mantha had two goals and two assists for Detroit, which has lost four straight, seven of nine and 17 of 26 since it last topped .500 on Jan. 5.

Jared Coreau was beaten by the first two shots he faced and stopped just 12 of 16 shots before he was replaced 3:27 into the second period. Jimmy Howard faced 19 shots and saved 17 of them.

“It was nice to get that chance right away and bury it,” Toews said. “Overtime can go either way, and it’s usually one great scoring chance to the next.”

“That was a pretty good play,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “A great pass and a great shot. Good ending there.”

Chicago’s Jean-Francois Berube stopped 33 shots and Erik Gustafsson connected in the first as the fading Blackhawks won for the second time in five games.

Berube was sharp in his fourth game since being called up from Rockford of the AHL. The Blackhawks have been without injured No. 1 goalie Corey Crawford since Dec. 23.

“Every time you go in the net you try to showcase yourself,” Berube said. “For me, it’s `Take it one game at a time and play the game I can play and let the result unfold.”

Hall extended his point-scoring streak to 19 games, Travis Zajac scored two power-play goals and the Devils snapped a three-game skid with a 6-4 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.

Hall’s consecutive-points streak is the longest in the NHL this season. Hall, who had two assists, has recorded points in his last 26 appearances dating to Jan. 2. He missed three games before the All-Star break with a thumb injury during that span.

“It’s cool. It seems like everything is kind of bouncing the right way when I’m out there, especially on the power play lately,” Hall said. “So it’s great to chip in, great to contribute, and I’m out there to get points, score goals and play well that way, so I want to keep it going. At the end of the day, I just want to be on a team that gets into the playoffs.”

Stefan Noesen, Blake Coleman, Patrick Maroon and Brian Boyle also scored for Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys the Basketball Jerseys For Sale Devils. Keith Kinkaid made 29 saves as New Jersey solidified its grip on the first wild-card slot in the Eastern Conference.

2018 NFL Draft order with date, time & live TV coverage from AT&T Stadium

More than 250 new players will join the league in the 2018 NFL Draft in April. Some top college football players will be important additions for teams like the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, as they look to rebuild for the future.

The Pistons picked Dinwiddie in the second round of the 2014 draft, despite a knee injury, and he played 46 games for them over two seasons.

That was a heck of a shot, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. I’m happy for Spencer, because he was here, obviously, but I’m happier for the team. I wasn’t sure we had the poise and understanding to get a win like this.

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy blamed himself for the final basket, where Ish Smith, generously listed as six feet tall, was covering the 6-foot-6 Dinwiddie.

Ish did a great job of guarding him, but I probably should have had more size out there against him, Van Gundy said. Ish gave him a tough look, but Spencer was able to get above him and make a great shot.

Dinwiddie finished with 22 points. Tobias Harris led the Pistons with 20.

Johnson wasn’t thrilled to hear his team is listed as the biggest Super Bowl underdog since 2009 and made it clear he and his teammates have no intention of letting the Patriots leave the big game without a fight.

I know, Johnson said after the game, via ESPN. Hey, Tom Brady. Pretty boy Tom Brady. He’s the best quarterback of all time, so, nothing I’d like to do more than dethrone that guy.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins echoed Johnson’s confidence, saying Brady has been beaten before and can be beaten again.

Greatest quarterback of all time, but that doesn’t mean that he’s unbeatable, Jenkins said. We’ve got a destination that we’re geared to. No matter who’s in front of us, we’ve got somewhere to go.
