Wentz tore his ACL and LCL in a game Dec. 10 and watched as backup Nick Foles led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl championship. Yet despite Foles’ heroics, and the fact he signed a new contract with Philadelphia in April, Wentz is the unquestioned No. 1 QB heading into 2018 鈥?assuming he’s ready.

Wentz told NFL Network’s Good Morning Football Monday that rehab has been painful, but he’s making progress.

As far as changing as a player, there’s just things that I’ll continue to learn through my whole career, he said. There’s times when you look back on the tape and maybe I should have avoided that (hit), know when to cut your losses. But overall, as an aggressive player, I’m not going to change, so to speak. I’m not going to let this slow me down going forward. I truly believe I’ll come back stronger than ever. Especially having to miss the playoffs, miss the Super Bowl.

The Washington Redskins had their first open session of offseason workouts on Wednesday, and the player everybody was on hand to see didn’t disappoint.

New running back Derrius Guice didn’t get a chance to show off all his moves, since these are non-contact practices, but he earned an endorsement from Jay Gruden for his ability to pick up the playbook quickly.

The Denver Broncos clearly have taken a draft-and-develop approach with their wide receiver unit. Over the last two years, the team has drafted Courtland Sutton (second round), Carlos Henderson (third round), DaeSean Hamilton (fourth round) and Isaiah McKenzie (fifth round) to compete for playing time behind the established Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

According to Spotrac, the Broncos could save over $25 million if Authentic Lorenzo Alexander Jersey they released Thomas and Sanders next season, giving them incentive to go to bat for young receivers who could be ready to start in 2019. Based on DenverBroncos.com’s Andrew Mason’s reporting of OTAs, Sutton has separated himself from the pack.

Here are the new kickoff rules NFL owners will be voting on at the spring meeting

Here are the new kickoff rules NFL owners will be voting on at the spring meeting More The NFL’s 32 owners are going to be pretty busy next week when they get together in Atlanta for their annual spring league meeting (May 22-23), and that’s because the group is going to have quite a few things to vote on. First and foremost, the owners will be voting on several rule changes that will affect the kickoff. The kickoff as you currently know it will be going away if all the proposals are passed.

Meanwhile, Bortles is set to enter his fifth season as the Jaguars’ starting quarterback after an uneven season that saw him rank 15th out of 35 quarterbacks by Football Outsiders’ metrics before producing some of the best football of his career during the Jaguars’ final two playoff games. In late February, Bortles landed a contract extension that is scheduled to keep him in Jacksonville through the 2020 season. Maybe by then he’ll learn to take his keys out of his truck.

The timing is fitting for Woods, the 14-time Major champion enjoying something of a comeback. Tiger has overcome a rash of back surgeries to rank as a top-12 finisher in four PGA Tour events in 2018.

Manning, meanwhile, has plenty of time to swing the clubs after walking away from football before the 2016 season.

The NFL is in a tough spot with kickoffs. Good luck finding any fans who are good with it being eliminated. Even though kickoffs have been changed enough so almost all of them seem to be touchbacks, there’s a ceremony and tradition involved.

Maybe it’s the final stand for fans who don’t like changes designed to make a violent sport safer. [ Yahoo Fantasy Football leagues are open: Sign up now for free ] But the NFL has to find a way to make kickoffs safer, somehow. Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy had the strongest statement to date on the issue back in March, when he said kickoffs need to become safer or they will be eliminated. Murphy is on the competition committee.

Jets QB competition will move forward during OTAs

Jets left tackle Kelvin Beachum said recently that the team won’t know what it has in quarterback Sam Darnold until the third overall pick in this year’s draft takes a big hit and that hit won’t come during the team’s organized team activities this month.

If Jackson makes plays with his legs and his arms, the drumbeat to name him the starter will become more of a drumroll. If he struggles, well, the critics are always out there, armed with hot takes about Jackson’s future at wide receiver.

But the Hall of Fame Game is almost a custom-tailored opportunity for a dual-threat quarterback like Jackson to outperform the fourth-stringers and future gym teachers who get into the contest before halftime.

Maddon was asked what makes Bryant special, and he didn’t recite one statistic, instead praising him for his hustle and work ethic. It’s just another elite aspect of one of the best players in the game.

The thing about him, beyond the numbers, he plays hard every day, Maddon said on Sunday morning. Every pitch he plays hard. That’s what I really appreciate about him. That’s part of the reason he’s not playing today. He does get after it the proverbial 110 percent.

Hey, look — another team that hasn’t won a playoff game since it fired Lovie Smith! Sure, he never got the Buccaneers to the playoffs, but roll with me here.

I really believed Tampa Bay would be in the thick of things last year. But, for the second time in my life, Dirk Koetter hurt me greatly. (Arizona State fan? Check!) Apparently, I just can’t quit him, because I’m kinda right back in again.

Stanton’s home run meant the Yankees had four players with 10 or more home runs in their first 40 games of the season, via researcher Katie Sharp. Also, no other team in baseball has more than two hitters with 10 or more bombs.

The blast came against Brett Anderson, a lefty. Might not have been a surprise that Stanton went crazy Sunday. By the time Anderson was finished, Stanton improved to.457 (16-for-35) with 15 RBI and seven home runs vs. southpaws this season.

The Braves entered the opener of a three-game series Monday night with a 28-17 record and a 1陆-game lead in the division. The Phillies carved that to a half-game with a 3-0 victory. A garden-variety crowd of 21,284 was on hand to see it. But if you looked closely enough, you saw two teams that are enjoying being relevant again.

It makes your heart beat a little faster in the dugout, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. As a fan of baseball, it’s nice to see two teams with really rich history and amazing fans and a rich history of winning compete for first place in the National League East. I’m a baseball fan at heart, and thinking about that gives me goosebumps.

Goldstone said Kushner, then a top campaign adviser, was one of just three people who spoke during the meeting, interrupting Veselnitskaya at one point to ask her to refocus her presentation. Goldstone said he recalled that Kushner stayed for the entire meeting 鈥?contradicting Veselnitskaya’s public assertion the president’s son-in-law left early and never came back.

Authentic Davis Webb Jersey As for the president’s son, he told the committee he was disappointed that the Russian lawyer did not provide more information that could be used in the campaign: All else being equal, I wouldn’t have wanted to waste 20 minutes hearing about something that I wasn’t supposed to be meeting about, he told the committee.

Wideout Corey Davis didn’t score his first NFL touchdown until the Tennessee Titans’ final game of the year鈥攁n AFC divisional-round loss to the Patriots. He scored twice in the contest.

Davis came into the league recovering from ankle surgery. A hamstring injury sidelined him through a portion of last year’s camp activities and cost him games during the regular season. In addition, the Titans offense didn’t look sharp in 2017. Quarterback Marcus Mariota threw 13 touchdowns to 15 interceptions in his worst season.聽

Sam Bradford sent Josh Rosen a text, promising to be “an open book”

Sam Bradford didn’t wait long to welcome Josh Rosen to the Cardinals. The team’s veteran quarterback sent a text message to the 10th overall pick the morning after the Cardinals selected Rosen.

“First and foremost, I’m an Arizona Cardinal,” Rosen said at his introductory press conference. “It’s team before everything. . . . I’m going to compete my butt off every single day, but then again, I’m not going to be the guy that comes in and thinks he’s the man from Day 1. It’s a long process, and you’ve got to earn it.”

Given the dramatic changes in recent years regarding attitudes toward marijuana use, Callaway’s positive test at the Combine is problematic only because, given current league rules, there are specific times of the year when players must choose football over marijuana. As to Callaway, however, other incidents create more concern, including allegations of credit card fraud and a sexual assault accusation that he defended by claiming he was too stoned for sex.

Regardless, Dorsey wasn’t bashful about taking chances on character risks in Kansas City. That apparently hasn’t changed.

The belief was he had a stellar season for the Chargers last year, but the fact that he remains unsigned in free agency suggests it was really just a case of fans seeing a guy with a catchy name and five interceptions (which can sometimes be circumstantial with a free safety).

Bene Benwikere was a rising slot corner but then broke his leg in 2015 and in 2016 Julio Jones revealed to the world that Benwikere could only play the slot.

Jones’ 300 yards in Week 4 against Benwikere and Carolina is one of history’s biggest receiver-on-corner beatdowns on record.

So what you have: five players who were good for a minute (and longer, in Turner’s case), but not at the same time.

They announced that former Texas Tech quarterback Nic Shimonek agreed to a deal with the team. Shimonek spent one year as the starter in Lubbock and went 328-of-493 for 3,963 yards, 33 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. His college target Dylan Cantrell was taken by the Chargers in the sixth round.

Geno Smith and Cardale Jones are already on hand as backup options to Philip Rivers.

Lamar Jackson hasn’t heard from Joe Flacco, yet

Elite Pat LaFontaine Jersey After the Ravens picked Lamar Jackson in round one, incumbent starter Joe Flacco had nothing to say about Jackson. Since then, Flacco has had nothing to say to Jackson.
Youth Limited Chris Jones White Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Road #95 NFL Kansas City Chiefs Nike
Yes, Flacco seems to be far closer to Ben Roethlisberger than Josh McCown on the Rookie Quarterback Welcome Wagon Meter. And for good reason; given Flacco’s salary, cap number, and recent performances, it’s clear that the Ravens didn’t add Jackson to be insurance against a Flacco retirement or a guy who could be moved to receiver but as the potential successor to the Super Bowl XLVII MVP.

Similarly, coach Adam Gase said it’s not prudent to go without contingency at quarterback, and owner Stephen Ross was so fed up by how poorly Tannehill’s fill-ins did last year that he dropped an f-bomb when assessing the season after the finale.

Yet here the Dolphins are, about two weeks away from the start of Organized Team Activities, and the fallbacks in case something goes wrong with Tannehill are Fales, Brock Osweiler and Bryce Petty. If Gase felt shaky proceeding with Moore as his starter last summer, imagine how unsettling it’ll be to march on with one of those three.

Immediately after Pittsburgh selected former Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph in the third round of last week’s NFL Draft, Roethlisberger took to the media to indicate that he now wants to play several more years.

More recently, Big Ben called out the Steelers for said draft pick in what can only be described as an ugly quote from the future Hall of Fame signal caller.

Elite Luc Robitaille Jersey So, I was surprised when they took a quarterback, because I thought that maybe in the third round, you can get some really good football players that can help this team now, Roethlisberger said Friday.

Large windows on the outside of U.S. Bank Stadium were found to be a massive danger to bird populations in Minneapolis as they would be killed while colliding with the windows.

Authentic Youth Clayton Fejedelem Jersey
No matter how good Hurst becomes, teams likely won’t regret making the safe choice medically. Hurst has an irregular heartbeat. Hurst will predictably try to downplay it, but he has a health condition that gives teams legitimate concerns about his ability to have an extended and meaningful NFL career.

Just an irregular heartbeat, Hurst said. I don’t think it’s anything of concern for myself or any other team. So, the Raiders, it’s something we have to get checked up every year and just make sure everything’s good.

The Cubs spent ace-level money to sign Yu Darvish this offseason, but the early returns have been suspect, to say the least. Other than a six-inning, one-run, nine-strikeout performance against the Brewers on April 7, Darvish has struggled. The righty has been pulled in the fifth inning in his three other starts, all after having that inning fall apart on him. Figure this: With Authentic Gordie Howe Jersey two outs in an inning, Darvish has given up 11 hits and seven walks (18 of a combined 32 hits and walks against him) this season. — Woolums

He couldn’t play at all, showing big bust material as a rookie. Then came Allen鈥檚 positive test for cocaine the next year before he was charged and imprisoned for sexual assault. Banned from the NFL, he struggled to hang around in other leagues.

Richardson was the rare case of the Steelers whiffing on someone to help their 3-4 defense. It became clear Richardson couldn’t help them anywhere. He was traded to Washington in 1992 after just five games of action for Pittsburgh.

The team announced that eight of their 12 draft picks had signed their rookie deals, all four-year pacts.

The players Authentic Malik Hooker Jersey signed include the final eight picks, beginning with their fourth-rounders: Cornerback Anthony Averett, center Bradley Bozeman, safety DeShon Elliott, wide receivers Jordan Lasley and Jaleel Scott, tackle Greg Senat, defensive end Zach Sieler, and linebacker Kenny Young.

Report: Raiders called ‘irresponsible’ for picking Maurice Hurst

The Oakland Raiders are dealing with some major shade coming their way for the 2018 NFL Draft, but it has nothing to do with their actual selections.

Instead, Jon Gruden and company are getting serious heat for selecting a player who was a first-round talent in former Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst. The Raiders wound up taking him in the fifth round, ending a brutal slide for an exceptionally talented player. His slide came due to a heart condition which resulted in him being sent home from the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine.

Did you know? Leading into Round 1, ESPN will show 26 consecutive hours of draft coverage. Also, ESPN Deportes will offer a Spanish-language telecast of Round 1. ESPN3 will show Rounds 2-3 in Spanish.

Quote: Burke Magnus, ESPN executive vice president of programming and scheduling: “The draft is the perfect intersection of college football and the NFL, so giving fans the opportunity to experience Round 1 through the lens of ‘College GameDay’ makes perfect sense.”

Without those second-round picks, it’s tough for New York to fill holes elsewhere. And this is a team with several holes. The Jets filled a few in free agency, throwing money at cornerback Trumaine Johnson and linebacker Avery Williamson, for instance, but there aren’t many playmakers here. Who is Darnold or Josh McCown going to throw to in 2018? I don’t think Terrelle Pryor Sr. is the answer, and Robby Anderson has off-field issues.

I did like the pick of Nathan Shepherd at 72, an active defensive tackle who showed at the Senior Bowl against better competition that he belongs. Tight end Chris Herndon IV (pick 107) was rising up boards over the last few weeks. Cornerback Parry Nickerson (197) ran a 4.32 40 at the combine and was a four-year starter at Tulane.

Avril, a third-round draft pick in 2008, spent his first five seasons with the Lions. He signed with the Seahawks as a free agent prior to the 2013 season, and had a career-high 11.5 sacks in 2016. But he was only on the field for four games in 2017 due to a serious neck injury that required surgery.

Here’s the outlook for the Seahawks and Avril. tigers_010-115x115
