Courtney Upshaw visited Eagles

On one hand, it seemed as if Acuna had proven everything there was to prove. He soared through the minors last season as if the learning curve somehow didn’t apply to him, his average spiking at each level. He went to the Arizona Fall League, where he continued to mash (1.053 OPS) and became the youngest player ever to win the MVP. Then came his ridiculous spring training performance. Plus, it’s not like the Braves didn’t need outfield help: Although they had veteran Nick Markakis in right and 2017 All-Star Ender Inciarte in center, there was a glaring hole in left, where Preston Tucker and Lane Adams — a pair of reserves in their late 20s — were Atlanta’s next best options.

Denver agreed to terms with second-round receiver Courtland Sutton, fourth-round linebacker Josey Jewell, fourth-round receiver DaeSean Hamilton, fifth-round tight end Troy Fumagalli, sixth-round guard Sam Jones, fifth-round linebacker Keishawn Bierria and seventh-round running back David Williams.

He made 195 catches for 3,220 yards and 31 receiving touchdowns in his career Dominique Easley Jersey at SMU.

The Buccaneers should have known Bo better. They didn’t have the franchise pull to convince him to choose the NFL over baseball. He held his ground and refused to sign with them, but when they gave up his rights a year later, the Los Angeles Raiders made him the NFL offer he couldn’t refuse.

Off-field concerns related to a fight in college were there before the draft. He kept getting in trouble in Nashville before his rookie season began. Drug possession charges plagued him in 2006. A shooting incident in’07 got him suspended for all of ’08. At least he found some kind of stability with the Bengals.

Patriots talked to Bengals about third-round trade

The Patriots drafted Duke Dawson with the 56th overall pick. They didn鈥檛 select again until choice No. 143.

New England, though, tried to trade into the third round.

The Patriots, who sent their third-round pick to the 49ers in the Trent Brown trade, called the Bengals Pierre Turgeon Youth jersey as Cincinnati was getting ready to use the 78th pick.

My son sent (the Eagles) a letter after we found out, Michael said, according to the book Weirdest Moments in Sports. I think he wanted to see if the Eagles owed me a signing bonus. Think of the interest I could have (accumulated on the money). Fifty-seven years worth.

The Eagles at the time were unaware that Michael had joined the Army.

However, the Bengals still have optimism that Ross will find his footing better in year two. One of those pieces that believes Ross will make a stride forward is A.J. Green.

He鈥檚 got his confidence back, Green said of Ross, via Alex Marvez of the Sporting News. The way he鈥檚 working this offseason is unbelievable. He鈥檚 healthy and explosive again.

Ross battled injuries during his time in college at the University of Washington as well. But once he was fully healthy as a senior, Ross shined. He caught 81 passes for 1,150 yards and eight touchdowns, which helped make him a top ten pick last season.

Ross certainly wouldn鈥檛 be the only player to scuffle through a rookie season to make a leap in subsequent years. Being healthy again and feeling comfortable could go a long way to making those strides in 2018.

In sending a pair of second-round picks to move up only five spots, they set a massive valuation on their quarterback of the future. By the Stuart chart, the Bills valued Allen as being worth more than the No. 1 overall pick, while the Johnson chart pegged Allen as somewhere between the third and fourth overall pick in a typical draft.

Matt Patricia reiterates his innocence during press conference

Lions coach Matt Patricia met with reporters on Thursday, as part of a previously-scheduled press conference. He opened by making a statement regarding the story that surfaced on Wednesday evening of an indictment from 1996 on a charge of aggravated sexual assault. After his statement ended, he took roughly 13 questions.

“I lived with the mental torture of a situation where facts can be completely ignored or misrepresented with disregard to the consequence and pain that it would create for another person. I find it unfair and upsetting that someone would bring up this claim over two decades later for the sole purpose of hurting my family, my friends, and this organization, with the intention of trying to damage my character and credibility. I was innocent then, and am innocent now.

“Let me be clear, my priorities remain the same. To move forward and strive to be the best teacher, coach, and man that I can possibly be.”

Patricia first was asked whether he thought the issue would never come up, especially in the wake of the #MeToo movement. He explained that he began interviewing for jobs not long after the incident was resolved, and that “it never was an issue.”

Next came the question of what happened on the night in question, which resulted in Patricia and a college football teammate/fraternity brother being accused of entering a woman’s hotel room and sexually assaulting her while on spring break.

“Again, I think what’s important here is what happened 22 years ago is what didn’t happen,” Patricia said. “As I said, I was innocent then, I am innocent now. I was falsely accused of something I did not do.”

A picture recently making the rounds on social media shows Jason Witten, Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray sitting in the locker room after a victory over the Colts on December 21, 2014. The players are all smiles, having clinched the NFC East.

It seems like only yesterday that Witten, Romo, Bryant and Murray were teammates on the Cowboys.

Romo and Witten’s departures in particular have left a hole in Jones’ heart and a leadership void on the team.

Astros’ Ken Giles punches himself in the face after blowing game to Yankees

HOUSTON And the funniest baseball moment of the year so far goes to…
Youth Terrell Owens Jersey Limited Breno Giacomini Youth Road White Nike Jersey - #68 NFL Houston Texans Vapor Untouchable
Limited Justin Turner Jersey Astros closer Ken Giles has this baby by a landslide.

It’s not every day that you see a ballplayer so angry at himself that he makes a fist and punches himself right in the face.

The Bears got one of the best linebackers in the draft with Georgia’s Roquan Smith. They also added wideout Anthony Miller to complement Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel, rounding out a nice set of receiving weapons for Mitchell Trubisky.

The Bengals shored up the offensive line, a huge need, with the addition of Billy Price and the trade with the Bills that brought in Cordy Glenn. They boosted the defense on Day 2 with the additions of Sam Hubbard, Jessie Bates III, and Malik Jefferson.

2. Rashaad Penny, RB, Seattle Seahawks: He was a surprising pick for the Seahawks, but he’s the kind of big, powerful running back that Seattle likes. In 2017, Russell Phil Dawson Authentic Jersey Wilson led the team in rushing yards while five running backs each had between 45 and 70 carries. None of them cracked 250 yards. Penny is built to be a workhorse for the Seahawks and could get the amount of touches that Marshawn Lynch used to get in Seattle.

3. Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns: The caveat for Mayfield and every other quarterback in the rookie class is that it’ll be difficult to see the field much in 2018. Mayfield will be behind Tyrod Taylor at first, but if he takes over, he could be pretty well set up for success.

4. Ronald Jones, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: He’s the only player outside the first round on this list, but Jones stands to see a lot of carries in 2018. Doug Martin led the Buccaneers in that category last season, but averaged just 2.9 yards per carry and was cut after the season ended.

Nine NFL veterans who have been put on notice after NFL draft

Derek Roy Game Jersey
While the NFL draft is a huge opportunity for the 256 rookies selected, it’s also a wake-up call for some veterans whose teams might be looking to the future. Here’s a look at some experienced players who were put on notice by their team’s selections:
Women's Thomas Vanek Authentic White/Pink Adidas Jersey: NHL Vancouver Canucks #26 Fashion
GM John Elway gave SMU receiver Courtland Sutton a first-round grade. When the Mustangs star was available in Round 2, the memo was clear 鈥?Denver wants to upgrade production from its receivers. Sutton has an extremely similar skill set (catches well in traffic, physical, athletic) and is the same height (6-3) as Thomas, who’s in the midst of a five-year, $70 million deal but has seen his production steadily decline every year since 2014. With the Broncos also adding Penn State receiver DaeSean Hamilton in the fourth round, the message got even louder聽鈥?and maybe聽Emmanuel Sanders should listen, too.

Cam Newton Authentic Jersey As y’all can clearly see. She has her hair lol. She did this exact same thing at Iowa State, Irving wrote later. I call the cops , but being dark , and we’ll huge , I’m always the one who’s in trouble . She’s a MmA fighter , bad attitude , and she uses my position against me.

The woman later seemingly regained access to Irving’s Twitter account to refute his denials.

Listen to david lies all you want you’ll all see, the woman聽wrote. He’s manipulative and a liar.聽Who moves the mother of their child to Texas wit no family just to beat her up and put her in the streets no clothes no shoes.聽And wait till y’all find out about his failed drug tests.

She then wrote she’s willing to talk to all the Authentic Terry O’Reilly Jersey reporters willing to listen but Irving broke her phone.

I can back my words up with evidence video pictures audio etc., she said. His lies will never prevail.

George Weah’s nephew, Jester, a hopeful in this year’s receiver class

Clayton Fejedelem Authentic Jersey Jester Weah, a wide receiver out of Pittsburgh, is currently CBS Sports’ 19th ranked wide receiver and 132nd overall prospect, which means that out of 256 selections he has a decent chance of being selected at Thursday’s NFL Draft. If his bloodline is any indication, there’s no doubting his athleticism.
Nike Reuben Foster Men's Red Elite Jersey: #56 NFL Home San Francisco 49ers USA Flag Fashion
We haven’t eliminated any position this year , general manager Kevin Colbert said Monday, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette . Our job is not only to win a championship in ’18, it’s to secure this franchise’s ability to do it in the future, and you have to have a great player at the quarterback position in our eyes to have the best chance to win a championship. And to do that, the Steelers would be wise to draft defensive help, starting with finding Ryan Shazier’s replacement. But ’tis the season for smokescreenin’ and obfuscatin’ so Colbert’s not going to just come out and say that. Look, Ben’s a Hall of Fame quarterback, he continued. We’re very lucky to have him. He has stated his intention to play at least a few more years, and that’s awesome. … Fortunately, we have one who is still a very highly productive, highly efficient quarterback, so part of our job is to surround him with the best talent as well. So we have to weigh that in, and we will weigh that in throughout, but we haven’t eliminated any position in this draft whatsoever.

Pat Shurmur and Case Keenum are out, and John DeFilippo and Kirk Cousins are in. But despite some changes, Minnesota and its trusty defense figure to be contenders in the NFC playoff hunt this season. That is, if they can navigate what appears to be a tough Alex Burrows Youth jersey 2018 schedule.

I have learned from my mistakes. I’ve grown up. I can be honest about my mistakes, Mayfield said. I’m just excited I can be that way with them. On top of it, it shows that it’s not about your size (height). It’s about winning and the mentality and leadership quality.

Elite Kevin Greene Jersey Mayfield, who is from Austin, Texas, transferred from Texas Tech to Oklahoma after his freshman season. During his college career, he threw for 14,607 yards and had 131 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions. He also rushed for 21 TDs and caught another during his college career.

The Favre homage appears to be a promo for Mayfield’s Facebook series, Behind Baker. Mayfield teased a behind-the-scenes video in reply to his original tweet. (UPDATE: The video was posted on Facebook after Mayfield was selected by the Browns with the first overall pick.)

Ravens trade back into 1st round to draft QB Lamar Jackson at No. 32

The Baltimore Ravens made the surprising move to trade back into the first round and select Lamar Jackson with the 32nd overall pick Thursday night, adding an exciting playmaker to one of the NFL’s worst offenses and providing some intrigue to the quarterback position.
#67 Nike Authentic Taj Gibson Men's Gray NBA Jersey - Minnesota Timberwolves City Edition
Ravens officials insisted Joe Flacco remains their starter and cautioned anyone from jumping to conclusions that Jackson would soon replace the Super Bowl-winning quarterback.

Game Kids Dean Lowry Jersey After falling to the bottom of the first round, Jackson was asked whether he had a chip on his shoulder. He didn’t let the reporter finish the question.

Absolutely, Jackson said. There is a chip on my shoulder. Both shoulders. I’m not mad. It’s just motivation.

While we feel that one of his teammates has the edge for playoff MVP, Guentzel made a case for himself with an outstanding performance in the Penguins’ win over the C.J. McCollum Authentic Jersey Philadelphia Flyers, notching 13 points (six goals, seven assists) in six games. He has 19 goals in 31 career playoff games, including a team-leading 13 goals as a rookie in Pittsburgh’s Cup run last season.

The Jets center had four goals and an assist in Winnipeg’s five-game defeat of the Minnesota Wild, with all but one goal coming in their Game 4 and 5 victories. Scheifele is tied with Dustin Byfuglien (five assists) for the team lead in points.

Oh, hey, look: Nick Bonino is leading another juggernaut of a line in the postseason. Bonino, who starred on the Penguins fabled HBK Line, has meshed with Colton Sissons and Watson to form the Preds’ most potent line in their first-round win over the Colorado Avalanche.

They’re just smart defensively, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. They can contribute offensively as they showed in this series, too.

Brewers’ Corey Knebel to miss at least six weeks with injured hamstring

Milwaukee Brewers All-Star closer Corey Knebel was placed on the disabled list Friday due to a left hamstring injury and is expected to be out at least six weeks.

All in all it’s about the best news the Brewers could expect after Knebel collapsed while holding the hamstring after throwing a pitch in Thursday’s loss to the Chicago Cubs.

“It really worried me yesterday, but today I woke up and it felt a lot better,” Knebel said before Friday’s game against the Cubs.

Knebel, 26, was getting some work in during a blowout loss when he went down. He was helped off the field by the training staff and was in “a lot of pain” after the game. Manager Craig Counsell said the team will use a variety of relievers to close out games in Knebel’s absence, but if someone emerges, then that person could get the majority of opportunities.

“They’ve been doing a great job,” Counsell said of his bullpen. “They’ve been very efficient. We’ve rarely had to get other guys up to cover their innings. If we continue on that mode of operation, we’ll be just fine.”

The Brewers bullpen is 3-0 with a 2.01 ERA entering play Friday. It was 3-for-3 in save opportunities before Knebel went down. Jacob Barnes, Jeremy Jeffress, Dan Jennings and even lefty Josh Hader now could get the call in the ninth for the Brewers.

As for Knebel, he had no issue with pitching in a non-save situation, as the Brewers determined he needed the work after not throwing for five days. He considered the injury a fluke.

“I was prepared like I normally [am],” Knebel said. “It was just one of those freak accidents.”

Knebel had 39 saves last season as the Brewers fell just short of the postseason.

Griffin had previously rejected an offer from the Ravens as well as the Cardinals last offseason because he felt the teams weren’t good fits, though he appears to have changed his mind about Baltimore.

Griffin, 28, was selected by the Redskins with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and remained in Washington until he signed with the Browns in 2016. The Heisman Trophy winner has remained a free agent since the Browns released him in March 2017.

He hasn’t played since the final week of the 2016 season.

Snell left a little more than five minutes into the game when he turned an ankle when he stepped on a teammate’s foot while chasing a Knicks player around a screen. He returned in the second quarter and had 10 points.cardinals_056

NFL free agent news: Former Packers S Morgan Burnett signs with Steelers

Help at safety is on the way to Pittsburgh.

Former Packers safety Morgan Burnett agreed to terms on a three-year contract worth nearly $14.5 million with the Steelers after visiting the team Tuesday, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

The Steelers, who recently signed linebacker Jon Bostic to a two-year deal, have been hunting for help at safety since releasing veteran Mike Mitchell last week. Burnett could be just the boost Pittsburgh’s lagging defense needs, and many Steelers players have already chimed in to express their excitement.

“Let him pitch,” Hurdle said. “Let him show you who he is and what he is. Don’t need to write the end of the story now.”

The Reds have similar hopes for Mahle (1-1), who limited the Cubs to one hit in six innings in his 2018 debut. Mahle’s second start was rockier. He needed 29 pitches to get out of a first-inning jam and maneuvered in and out of trouble until the fifth. Josh Harrison singled, and Polanco followed with his home run. Starling Marte doubled and scored on Josh Bell’s single before Dickerson connected.

“I think he deserves the conversation,” Gore said. “He’s been good for us.”

The Pistons are 151-176 under Van Gundy as their coach and president of basketball operations. His 2015-16 team was swept in the first round of the playoffs.

Detroit (38-43) will finish the season Wednesday night at Chicago, failing to earn a spot in the postseason for the third time in Van Gundy’s four years.

Injuries were a big problem. Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson were in the lineup together for only four games.

“We probably need a few more games with them playing on the same team if we’re going to be good,” Van Gundy said. “Still have to own the 38 wins right now. You can’t run from that.”

Gores isn’t necessarily against allowing Van Gundy to lead both the front office and the bench.

“I see value in the front office and the court being connected,” he said.

Oblique injury lands Brewers’ Christian Yelich on DL

Christian Yelich took some swings in the batting cage, but his right oblique was still sore.

So the Milwaukee Brewers placed him on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday, four days after one of their prized offseason acquisitions got hurt during a 6-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. Yelich went on the DL retroactive to Thursday.

The fact I don’t remember doing it on a specific swing is probably good news, Yelich said before the Brewers played the Chicago Cubs. Discomfort kind of grew, and as a precaution, to make sure it wasn’t worse, we kind of toned it back a little bit. It’s really frustrating, you know? That’s the biggest thing.

The Brewers are well prepared to withstand a short-term injury to one of their core players. Stocked with outfield depth, Milwaukee can give more playing time to slugger Domingo Santana.

Jesus Aguilar could also get more time at first base, with starter Eric Thames able to play the outfield.

We’re going to miss [Yelich’s] left-handed bat, I think that’s the big thing, Counsell said. But we’re equipped that way roster-wise obviously [to] have another really capable player get some playing time.

It has been a tough week with injuries for the Brewers, who placed All-Star closer Corey Knebel on the disabled list on Friday with a strained right hamstring.

They’ve added three new right-handed relievers over the weekend, with Adrian Houser called up from Double-A Biloxi to replace Knebel.

On Saturday, J.J. Hoover’s contract was selected from Triple-A and starter Brandon Woodruff was optioned to Colorado Springs.

Williams pitched in one game at Colorado Springs, getting a save on Thursday at Omaha.

Smith was arraigned Thursday on three charges of violating a protective order, which was issued when he was arraigned March 12 for his original domestic violence charges stemming from a March 3 incident with his fiancée. He turned himself in on those charges on March 23 but failed to show for a court appearance two weeks ago before making his appearance Thursday. He was ordered to wear an ankle monitor, which monitors alcohol use through sweat, and released.

Smith was booked for violating a condition of his electronic monitoring, Sheriff’s spokeswoman Nancy Crowley told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Smith’s fiancée, Shawna McKnight, said in a statement to TMZ Sports that, Unfortunately through these circumstances Aldon and I are no longer together.

Although it’s with a heavy heart, I truly wish him the best and pray he gets the help he needs. I will always have love for him, but at this point I’m simply the victim in this ongoing case, she said.
