Jerry Jones gets his hour in the court of Roger Goodell

When Commissioner Roger Goodell wasn’t running a 40-yard dash in the hallway at 345 Park Avenue (his official time was 5.41 seconds, according to the most important person in the process 锟斤拷 the one who starts and stops the clock), Goodell was flying to Authentic Luis Tiant Jersey Palm Beach for a hearing in the effort to recover more than $2 million in legal fees from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Goodell also will decide whether threatening litigation over Goodell’s contract extension is the same as initiating litigation. Anyone who has any understanding of the legal system knows that the two concepts are vastly different. But Goodell will be making the decision 锟斤拷 and as his past rulings have shown, he doesn’t really have any understanding of the legal system.

Maybe Goodell will try to come off as merciful by splitting the baby and making Jones pay only the bill for the Elliott litigation. But since Goodell already has decided to whack Jones for both, a retreat on appeal will make him look wishy-washy. More importantly, it will open him up to gripes and complaints from owners who want to see Jones fully punished for his antics last year.

In a four-page, 800-word letter to a reporter for the Charlotte Observer, Carruth, 44, said the reunion and potential repaired relationship with Chancellor Lee Adams he promised just weeks ago will never happen, despite the fact the former first-round pick out of Colorado is due to be released from prison in October after being sentenced to 18 to 24 years in prison for conspiring to kill his pregnant girlfriend, Cherica Adams, in 1999. Carruth’s son now lives with his maternal grandmother, Saundra Adams, in Charlotte.

For all involved or invested in this ordeal, please calm down, Carruth wrote reporter Scott Fowler. I will no longer be pursuing a relationship with Chancellor and Ms. Adams. I promise to leave them be, which I now see is in everyone’s best interest.

The letter is in stark contrast to a 16-page apology Carruth issued to a television station last month, saying he wanted to apologize to Saundra Adams for the death of her daughter and for the impairment of his son. Police said Carruth hired a hitman to fatally shoot Adams, 24, to get out of paying child support. The couple’s son was later born via an emergency Caesarean section. The apology marked Carruth’s first public comments in nearly two decades.

49ers sign guard Jonathan Cooper to one-year deal

The San Francisco 49ers signed veteran guard Jonathan Cooper to a one-year deal on Tuesday.
Authentic Youth Joe Hawley Jersey Limited Shane Ray Youth Olive Nike Jersey - #56 NFL Denver Broncos 2017 Salute to Service
General manager John Lynch said in a statement that Cooper will compete for a starting job with the 49ers.

Having started 27 games in four NFL seasons, Jonathan brings great experience to the interior of our offensive line, Lynch said in the statement. We look forward to him competing for a starting job at guard, while Kenta Maeda Jersey also bringing a veteran presence to our locker room. Jonathan is a welcome addition to our team.

That Shurmur mentioned the status of the kicker and punter is interesting, given that Aldrick Rosas and Brad Wing are under contract. That could lead the Giants to pursue Graham Gano in free agency. Gano went 29-of 30-on field goals in 2017 for Carolina, where new Giants general manager Dave Gettleman held the same position the past four years, with Gano as his kicker.

Limited Frank Clark Jersey Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Thursday it is going to be tough to re-sign guard Andrew Norwell, who is assuredly on the Giants’ radar, given Gettleman’s history with him and the need to import talent on the offensive line. Norwell will likely be the No. 1 target for the Giants when free agency begins March 12.

Hyde is 27 years old and replaces Isaiah Crowell, who on Tuesday agreed to a three-year deal with the Jets. Hyde’s arrival in Cleveland does not completely preclude the Browns from taking Barkley in the draft, but it certainly is reasonable to suggest Hyde’s presence shifts their focus toward selecting a quarterback with the first overall pick. The strong expectation is the Browns kick off the draft by selecting Sam Darnold out of USC.

The Giants on Tuesday also added a running back, signing Jonathan Stewart to a two-year deal worth $6.9 million, with $2.95 million guaranteed, but his move actually increases the likelihood the Giants take Barkley, considered by many the most talented player in this draft. Stewart turns 31 next week and is coming off a season in which he averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per rushing attempt. He should be viewed as a short-yardage and goal-line option and also a 10-year veteran who will add a professional attitude to the locker room. His contract should realistically be viewed as a one-year deal for around $3 million. He should not be viewed as the starting running back 鈥?nor should Wayne Gallman, entering his second season with the Giants.

NCAA Wrestling Championships 2018: Bo Nickal’s shocking fall of Myles Martin gives Penn State team title

Penn State junior Bo Nickal reversed Myles Martin in the first period immediately after the Ohio State star took him down with a double-leg takedown nearly to his back and scored a dramatic fall for the 184-pound NCAA title Saturday.

“It sucked,” said Martin. “I just have to keep attacking. I have to keep coming after him. We’ll move on. We’ll get better. I’m excited for the future.”

Zain Retherford (149), Jason Nolf (157) and Vincenzo Joseph (165) captured titles and the Nittany Lions needed one more win to wrap up the team championship. But Arizona State’s Zahid Valencia knocked off Mark Hall in the 174-pound final and that left it up to Nickal to seal the deal.

“I can’t describe it, sorry I can’t describe it,” said Nickal.

Martin had won a similarly crazy scramble in the 174-pound national title match two years ago against Nickal, going on to an 11-9 victory and national championship as a true freshman.

Signing a guard now doesn’t rule out taking one during the draft, but when you have a player like Newton, you do whatever it takes to keep him upright and healthy.

After being spurned by top names a year ago, Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace doubled down on his rebuilding plan.

The result The arrivals of wideouts Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel, a new tight end in Trey Burton, who will complement the promising Adam Shaheen and the return of solid boundary corner Prince Amukamara.

Pace now needs to keep his attention on inside linebackers. The Jerrell Freeman saga is long over and Christian Jones just signed elsewhere.

Whether it’s a veteran like Brian Cushing or Preston Brown, the Bears have to fill holes in the middle of the defense. Yes, they’re in Roquan Smith range on draft day, but flexibility would be nice.patriots_147

Rutgers’ Nick Suriano defeated by Iowa’s Spencer Lee in 2018 NCAA wrestling final

Suriano lost to Iowa’s heralded freshman Spencer Lee, 5-1, in the 125-pound final of the 2018 NCAA Championships, falling just short of becoming the Scarlet Knights’ first-ever national wrestling champion on Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
Men's Nike New York Jets #98 Mike Pennel Limited Green Player Name & Number Tank Top NFL Jersey
It was a historic weekend for Suriano, the state university’s first-ever national finalist, and Rutgers, which still has a chance to finish in the top-10 of the team race for the first time. But it ended shy of an NCAA title.

Suriano was ready in full for this weekend, though, and he showed it en route to the final. Suriano did not allow a single point in his first four bouts prior to Saturday’s final, with only two bouts going a full seven minutes after he won in the first and second rounds by technical fall and fall, respectively. Suriano, Rutgers’ 15th All-American ( teammate Scott DelVecchio became its 16th later in the tournament ), pinned West Virginia’s Zeke Moisey, a former national finalist, in the second round and beat reigning national champion Darian Cruz of Lehigh in the semifinal.

But Lee, who won his first four bouts by technical fall or fall, including a stunning pin of Ohio State national champion Nathan Tomasello in the semifinal round, proved the best man in the loaded weight class, finishing his freshman season with a 22-2 record.

An MLB Players Association spokesman said Monday that reporters and photographers will not be allowed to enter the facility, which opens Tuesday ahead of Wednesday’s first workout, The Associated Press reported. Union chief Tony Clark declined comment to the AP.

They said two full months will basically heal it on its own, but (former Mets pitcher) Erik Goeddel on our team last year did the injections when he had the same problem and said they helped out tremendously, so I said ‘why not just do it?’ Wheeler said, via the New York Daily News.

Being healthy is the biggest thing. You really can’t hope being healthy, but you can sort of do everything to prevent and that’s what I’m doing this past offseason. I changed up my workout routine, started eating a little bit healthier and did those extra shots. Everything I can do to be out there I’m going to do.

Bengals to acquire left tackle Cordy Glenn from Bills; teams swap first-round picks

The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a trade with the Buffalo Bills for left tackle Cordy Glenn, a source told ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

The Bills now own the 12th and 22nd selections in the first round, as well as two second-round picks (Nos. 53 and 56) and two third-round picks (Nos. 65 and 96).

Strief arrived in New Orleans months after Hurricane Katrina and got to be part of the rebirth of both the city and the team, which won its first Super Bowl in the 2009 season.

Parker was asked to take a pay cut and declined. He will become a free agent after five seasons with the Chiefs.

The move will save Kansas City almost $5 million against the salary cap. He was scheduled to count almost $7 million against the cap this year.

Hali had just 3.5 sacks in 2016 and none in 2017 after becoming a part-time player. He played in 16 games in 2016, but with just two starts. He was limited because of soreness in his knees to six games last season plus the playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Brandon LaFell Limited Jersey Parker, 30, has been a starter for the Chiefs each of the past four seasons. He missed just one game during that time.

MLB free agency rumors: Twins, Lance Lynn agree to 1-year deal

One free agent starting pitcher looks close to finding a new home.

According to FanRag Sports, the Twins are closing in on signing former Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn.

Lynn has had five straight seasons in which he made at least 31 starts. He threw for more than 200 innings in 2013 and 2014 and he posted a career-best .223 batting average against in 2017.

The Mariners and Angels play their first series of the season May 4-6 in Seattle.

“He’s basically like a high school hitter because he’s never seen a good curveball,” one scout told Yahoo. “He’s seen fastballs and changeups. And you’re asking a high school hitter to jump to the major leagues?”

What exacerbates the problem for Ohtani, though, is he has to cheat on inside fastballs. He has to get started early to turn on the pitch, and the issue with that is it leaves him susceptible to curveballs, especially from left-handers as was shown in his strikeout against Clayton Kershaw earlier this week.

Ohtani truly needs time to adjust to MLB-level pitching. He has seen some good pitchers in Japan, but if Miles Mikolas’ transition back into baseball in America is any indication, the level of the hurlers is not up to par with those Ohtani will face this coming season.

And, as you know, the guy Detroit shipped to Atlanta in that trade turned out to have a pretty good career, too. John Smoltz made his MLB debut in 1988 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2015.seahawks_032_68c47f44d385984c-180x180

Lonzo Ball injury update: Lakers say guard has MCL sprain, they won’t rush him back

The Lakers revealed Saturday Lonzo Ball is dealing with a minor MCL sprain.

Ball has missed the Lakers’ last six games since suffering what the team originally termed a “minor knee sprain” in an overtime win against the Mavericks Jan. 13. The recovery time for that type of injury is generally one to three weeks, so Ball’s return date is still uncertain, but head coach Luke Walton said the team will not rush him back.

Hynes’ take on his new forward was more effusive.

“He’s a menace below the tops of the circle,” Hynes said of Maroon.

The Jets (40-17-9) counter with a pair of forwards riding hot streaks — Patrik Laine, who is coming off a hat trick in Tuesday’s 3-0 win over the New York Rangers, has seven goals in his last three games and is second in the NHL with 38 goals, and Blake Wheeler, who has at least one assist in 11 of his last 12 games and was tied with Philadelphia’s Jakub Voracek for the league lead with 57 assists.

This monetary incentive, along with the new pick-up format in which LeBron James and Stephen Curry selected their teams, should help ensure a more competitive game.

“I think guys will definitely take the game more seriously,” Celtics forward and Team Stephen member Al Horford said. “In the last couple of years, the games haven’t been good, and we’re all aware of that. Regardless of that, I think guys are going to come out and compete. But that’s a big incentive, for sure. We’re going to be diving for loose balls out there.”

Klay Thompson, another member of Team Stephen, agreed with Horford and said: “I think it will help, for sure. That’s a lot of money.”

After earning a spot on the NBA All-Defensive Second Team last season, Roberson was well on his way to an All-Defensive First Team selection this year after upholding his reputation as one of the league’s most outstanding wing stoppers. Roberson rightfully earned consideration for Defensive Player of the Year ahead of the All-Star break not only for his individual success, but also how his presence impacts his teammates.lions_047

Bradley is a lock-down defender and a high-energy guy who is good for team chemistry. He is also a better 3-point shooter than Roberson, who really struggles offensively.

The only holdup would be Bradley’s health. While the 27-year-old is averaging 15 points and 38.1 percent shooting from 3-point range this season, he has missed nine games this year with injuries including the last two.

However, what he would offer to the Thunder would simply be too much to outweigh the worries about his injuries. Oklahoma City may have to give up more than they would like to get Bradley, but he would give them a very good replacement for Roberson in the short term.

Booker, Jackson help Suns end skid with win over Grizzlies

For the first time in a month, the Phoenix Suns were able to celebrate a win, this time at the expense of the equally-hapless Memphis Grizzlies.

In a game featuring two teams looking at the bottom of the standings instead of the top, Devin Booker scored 34 points, Josh Jackson added a career-best 29 and the Suns snapped a 10-game losing streak beating the Memphis Grizzlies 110-102 on Wednesday night.

San Antonio (36-26) played the second half without leading scorer LaMarcus Aldridge, who landed awkwardly and sprained his right ankle midway through the first quarter.

Pau Gasol was also out of the game with a bone bruise in his left knee, and the short-handed Spurs could not keep up with the high-flying Pelicans in the end game.

“I couldn’t be more proud of our group,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “Under very, very tough circumstances, they keep fighting. As long as they believe in each other and keeping working as hard as they are, we’re going to be in good shape.

Booker is going to be a tough guard for years to come, but there is realistically only room to regress in the usage department. That has me thinking that his age-21 season will be the best one fantasy managers will ever see.

Jim McCormick: Wunderkinds who produce at a high level on the professional stage at a very young age do tend to eventually become full-fledged superstars. Booker is just one of 11 players age 21 or younger to average at least 24.9 PPG. All of the players on this list, save for fellow prodigy Karl-Anthony Towns, are already in the Hall of Fame, or are no-brainers for future induction.

Evidence of his growth is everywhere. Booker’s assist rate jumped by 52 percent this season and he’s No. 8 in the NBA in points per game on pull-up jumpers. He also ranks just behind Chris Paul (and ahead of Kyrie Irving) in pick-and-roll plays initiated per game. He’s essentially on par with, or perhaps even statistically superior to DeMar DeRozan. Well in possession of the keys to the Phoenix franchise, Booker’s ceiling is still years away — and it’s quite high.
