      The wife of Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson has filed an order of protection against the girlfriend of one of Karlsson’s teammates Josh Bailey Jersey , alleging harassment and cyberbullying.

      In an application for a peace bond filed May 4 in an Ottawa court, Melinda Karlsson alleges that Monika Caryk posted hundreds of derogatory online messages aimed at her and her husband. Caryk is the longtime partner of Senators forward Mike Hoffman.

      ”Monika Caryk has uttered numerous statements wishing my unborn child dead,” Karlsson said in the sworn statement. The Karlssons’ first child, a son named Axel, was stillborn in March.

      The Ottawa Citizen was first to report on the allegations.

      Karlsson also claimed that Caryk ”uttered that she wished I was dead and that someone should `take out’ my husband’s legs to `end his career.’

      ”Monika Caryk has posted over 1 Kyle Turris Jersey ,000 negative and derogatory statements about me as a professional.”

      The Senators said in a statement Tuesday that the NHL club is ”investigating this matter in co-operation with the NHL and will take whatever steps are necessary to protect the safety and privacy of our players and their families.”

      Hoffman denied the allegations in a statement to the Citizen.

      According to Canada’s Department of Justice website, a peace bond is a protection order that requires a person to keep the peace and be on good behavior, and is used when that person appears likely to commit a criminal offense, but there are no reasonable grounds to believe that an offense has actually been committed.

      The Karlssons were the target of cyberbullying in March. An ugly online comment was posted on Erik Karlsson’s Instagram account after the defenseman made a post acknowledging the support he and Melinda received following their son’s death.

      Karlsson was drafted 15th overall by the Senators in 2008 and has blossomed into an elite NHL defenseman, while Hoffman is one of the team’s top forwards with four straight seasons of more than 20 goals.

      The allegations are the latest controversy in what has been a rough few weeks for the Senators. Assistant general manager Randy Lee has been charged with harassing a hotel shuttle driver in Buffalo during the NHL’s pre-draft scouting combine two weeks ago. He was initially scheduled to appear in court on June 22 John Riggins Jersey , the day the league holds the first round of its two-day draft in Dallas, but the court date is now July 6.

      And late last month, former captain Daniel Alfredsson told Ottawa blogger Sue Sherring that he hoped the Senators get a new owner in place of Eugene Melnyk.

      More NHL hockey: The Boston Red Sox acquired veteran first baseman/outfielder Steve Pearce in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night.

      Dave Dombrowski, the Red Sox president of baseball operations, announced the deal after Boston’s 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

      Boston sent minor league infielder Santiago Espinal to Toronto.

      Pearce’s cost to the Sox will be $1.5 million. The Blue Jays will give Boston $1 http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/mike-glennon-jersey ,658,602 to cover part of the $3,158,602 remaining in the $6.25 million salary of Pearce, who can become a free agent after the World Series.

      The 35-year-old has hit .291 with four home runs and 16 RBIs in 26 games for Toronto this season. Pearce has a career average of .255 and 83 career home runs and 268 RBIs. Boston manager Alex Cora said the Red Sox are adding a strong batter they can use against left-handed pitching.

      ”It’s one more weapon that we have. We got better tonight Bobby Massie Jersey ,” Cora said. ”It’s good to have him.”

      Pearce could join the Red Sox this weekend in New York when they face the division-rival Yankees.

      The Indiana Pacers are parting ways with guard Lance Stephenson Braden Smith Jersey , the gritty veteran who brought energy off the bench in last season’s surprising run to the playoffs.

      The team will not pick up the team option next season, Pacers President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard said Monday.

      ”This was a very difficult decision, but as free agency begins on July 1, we want to have flexibility so that we can prepare for all of our available options,” he said.

      A year ago http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/allen-hurns-jersey , Pritchard decided to trade star Paul George before almost surely losing him in free agency and got Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis from Oklahoma City in a deal that turned out remarkably well for Indiana.

      Oladipo emerged as a leader, earned his first All-Star trip and won the league’s steals title. Sabonis, a lottery pick in 2016, became a key contributor off the bench. Point guard Darren Collison was the NBA’s most accurate 3-point shooter, and Thaddeus Young and Bojan Bogdanovic thrived in their roles Womens Dak Prescott Jersey , too. Myles Turner, Indiana’s 22-year-old center, was one of the league’s leaders in blocks.

      Four of the starting five and Sabonis are already under contract for next season, with Young being the lone exception. He and backup point guard Cory Joseph have player options.

      Now Pritchard has decided to part with

      Stephenson brought grit off the bench for a team that won 48 games, fell just short of finishing in the top four in the Eastern Conference and was within four points late in a first-round Zach Parise Jersey , Game 7 loss to Cleveland. Stephenson, an eight-year veteran, finished the season averaging 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.

      The decision was no doubt wrenching for a team that bonded in finishing strong: Six players approached Pritchard before the trade deadline and pleaded with the GM not to make any moves because they wanted to close out the season together. Pritchard said it a first for him, and kept the team intact.

      Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden says wide receiver Josh Doctson is OK after landing hard on his left shoulder.

      Gruden said Thursday "everything checked out fine" after an evaluation. The third-year receiver is expected to be held out of at least one practice Jake Guentzel Jersey Kids , but Gruden insisted it's not a problem.

      Doctson got tangled up with cornerback Josh Norman during red-zone drills at training camp Thursday and left with trainers. He posted on Twitter that he was OK.

      Achilles' tendon soreness robbed the 2016 first-round pick of most of his rookie season. But he played every game last year and had 35 catches for 502 yards and six touchdowns. Even with the addition of Paul Richardson, the Redskins expect significant contributions from Doctson with new quarterback Alex Smith.

      The Miami Dolphins concede that Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki could block better. They drafted him anyway Frederik Andersen Jersey , which shows how much they like his pass-catching skills.

      Gesicki was a second-round selection Friday in the Dolphins' latest attempt to fill a position that has been problematic since Adam Gase became coach two years ago.

      The 6-foot-5 Gesicki was the second tight end drafted because his athleticism, including thunderous dunks in basketball and success in volleyball.

      There's a reason he lasted until the 42nd overall pick, however.

      "The one thing everyone talks about is him not being a great blocker," Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said. "But there are a lot of really good tight ends and pass catchers who are not great blockers. And this kid wants to be a better blocker."

      In the third round Miami drafted Ohio State linebacker Jerome Baker. He'll be reunited with another former Buckeyes linebacker, Raekwon McMillan, the Dolphins' second-round choice in 2017.

      The Dolphins hope Gesicki's deficiencies don't keep him from starting as a rookie. He could give Ryan Tannehill the downfield target in the middle of the field that Miami has lacked in recent years.

      "He's a hard matchup for people, being that big and athletic Womens Luke Kunin Jersey ," Grier said. "The speed will open up other stuff."

      Julius Thomas and Jordan Cameron were disappointments at tight end for Miami the past two years, and they're no longer on the roster. Gesicki joins an offense that averaged 17.6 points last season to rank fifth-worst in the NFL, and he expects to help the Dolphins do better.

      "I'm exactly where I belong," he said. "I'm excited to get to work in this offense. It can become very exciting in Miami."

      Gesicki had 15 career touchdown catches at Penn State and averaged 11.5 yards per reception. He acknowledged he has room for improvement and expects to benefit from NFL coaching.

      "I definitely need to continue to improve my run blocking," he said. "My best attributes are in the passing game, and I need to continue to develop on the other side."

      While Gesicki's size made him an appealing choice, the 225-pound Baker is undersized. But he had seven sacks and a hand in six takeaways the past two seasons Marvin Harrison Jersey , and led the Buckeyes last year with 72 tackles.

      "He has speed, and we want to get faster on defense," Grier said. "He's sideline to sideline."

      Grier said the Dolphins considered using the pick to take a quarterback, but decided Baker was too good to pass up, and McMillan's assessment of his former Ohio State teammate was a factor.

      "We had some insider trading with Raekwon," Grier said.

      McMillan suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first exhibition game last year but is expected to start in 2018.

      The Dolphins took Alabama All-America safety Minkah Fitzpatrick in the first round with the 11th overall choice. On the final day of the draft they'll be in the market for a defensive tackle and backup quarterback.

      Pete Carroll said Monday the Seattle Seahawks have not closed the door on the possibility of adding Colin Kaepernick to their roster, but how much further they pursue it may depend on the upcoming NFL draft.

      "We're still battling on all fronts Tyler Bozak Jersey , on all guys. We're still looking at guys and evaluating. There are still free agents we're looking at and in that the process just continues," Carroll said. "We've gone through the information gathering and we have a pretty good feel for where we are. It's ongoing. We're not done with that decision at all."

      Reports surfaced earlier this month that Seattle pulled out of a planned workout for Kaepernick, who has been without an NFL team since the end of the 2016 season. Seattle has been one of the few teams to show any interest in Kaepernick following his protests during the national anthem in the 2016 season with San Francisco.

      Carroll said the reports of what happened with the intended workout were "blown up."

      "I think we've been working at this thing for some time now. I don't think that was really as telling as it came across," Carroll said. "We're really aware of him and he's a fine football player and there may be a place for him. We don't know that yet."

      Whether Seattle revisits Kaepernick may be answered during this week's draft and if the Seahawks invest a draft pick in a quarterback for the first time since selecting Russell Wilson in the 2012 draft. Seattle has signed backups Stephen Morris and Austin Davis this offseason.

      Carroll and general manager John Schneider also gave brief updates on injuries to safety Kam Chancellor and defensive tackle Malik McDowell.

      Chancellor suffered a neck injury midway through last season that put his career in doubt. Schneider said Chancellor will have a "scan" in late June or early July to determine his status going forward. It could be as much a contract issue as anything else with Chancellor, who signed a three-year extension with $25 million guaranteed before the start of last season.

      Meanwhile, the status of McDowell remains murky. McDowell, Seattle's initial draft pick in the second round of last year's draft Oren Burks Jersey , was injured in an ATV accident last summer and has not taken part in any football-related activities since. Carroll said the team has received no indication on McDowell's ability to even rejoin the team at this point, let alone play football.

      "There is a lot of stuff we can't get into. It's a really unfortunate situation on both sides," Schneider said.

      The only diagnosis the team has provided regarding McDowell is that he suffered a severe concussion and facial injuries in the ATV accident.

      "We haven't had a good update in a long time," Carroll said.

      DeVante Parker‘s broken middle finer is “substantially better Reilly Smith Jersey ,” Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports, but the receiver’s availability for the beginning of the season remains in question.

      Parker injured the finger on his right hand three weeks ago, keeping him out of practice since.

      Per Beasley, there remains uncertainty about whether Parker will play in the season opener or even the second game.

      Jakeem Grant is Parker’s backup on the depth chart, with Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola joining Parker as the team’s top three receivers. Albert Wilson, the backup to Stills, also is expected to be a key contributor.

      Parker’s career has not gone to plan since the Dolphins made him a first-round pick in 2015. He had a career-best 57 catches last season, but in his three seasons, Parker has made 139 receptions for 1,908 yards and eight touchdowns.

      He has never had more than 744 yards in a season or more than four touchdowns.

      CHARLOTTE Youth James Conner Jersey , N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers will once again have to figure out the best way to replace the injured Greg Olsen.

      The three-time Pro Bowl tight end injured his right foot in the first half of Carolina’s 16-8 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and spent the second half looking on from the sideline on crutches with his foot in a boot. It’s the same foot Olsen fractured in Week 2 last year. That injury kept him out of nine games and ended his streak of three straight 1,000-yard seasons.

      Olsen was not available for comment after the game and coach Ron Rivera said he didn’t know the extent of the injury.

      Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said the team should know more on Monday, but Olsen’s teammates made it sound like the 33-year-old won’t be returning anytime soon.

      Panthers center Ryan Kalil said Olsen was “pretty upset” after the game.

      “I feel bad for him,” Kalil said. “He works incredibly hard, he cares a vast amount. He does a nice job, and he was out doing his job for his team, and it breaks my heart for him. Hopefully he gets some good news.”

      The Panthers will likely turn to rookie Ian Thomas as their starting tight end, although Cam Newton suggested the front office might need to make a roster move to add a tight end.

      “You guys know how I feel about Greg, you can’t ever replace him, his professionalism that he brings to the game Russ Grimm Jersey , his overall outlook, his IQ, his understanding,” Newton said.

      If history is any indication, running back Christian McCaffrey will see more balls thrown his way with Olsen out. McCaffrey was used as Newton’s safety valve last season and finished with a franchise rookie record 80 receptions.

      The Panthers also lost right tackle Daryl Williams to a knee injury, although the severity is not known.

      Things we learned from Carolina’s win over Dallas:

      KICKING TALK: Cowboys fans still angry about the team’s decision to release Dan Bailey, the NFL’s second-most accurate field goal kicker in history, will have more ammunition this week.

      Replacement Brett Maher missed his only field goal attempt from 47 yards wide to the right. It came late in the third period with Dallas trailing 10-0.

      Intermittent rain made for a sloppy field at Bank of America Stadium on a windy afternoon, conditions Maher brushed off.

      “I know what my job is,” Maher said. “My role on this team is to go out there and when I get a chance Ryan Kesler Jersey , put points on the board. I didn’t do that today.”

      REPLACING GREGORY: Randy Gregory’s return to football didn’t last long.

      The Cowboys defensive end, who missed the 2017 season because of multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy, left the game in the first half with a concussion. The league could reportedly rule on another possible substance-abuse related suspension as early as this week.

      Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he had no comment on those reports.

      CHASING HIM DOWN: The fact that the Panthers sacked Dak Prescott six times bodes well for the Carolina defense, given he’s an elusive quarterback.

      “We know he’s a scrambling quarterback and we know he likes to get out of the pocket,” Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson said. “There were some times he got out and escaped but overall, the D-line did a phenomenal job keeping him in the pocket.”

      Prescott finished 19 of 29 for 170 yards, but just a 8.9-yard average and two completions of more than 15 yards.

      McCAFFREY’S TOUCHES: Panthers coach Ron Rivera said in ideal world McCaffrey would touch the ball “25-30 times per game” this season. But the versatile second-year back only got his hands on the football 16 times for 95 yards on Sunday.

      McCaffrey rushed 10 times for 50 yards, with a long of 15, and caught six passes for 45 yards. Newton targeted him a total of nine times in the passing game.

      McCaffrey’s first carry, from the Dallas 5 in the first quarter and with the game still scoreless Ryan Johansen Jersey , resulted in a fumble that was recovered by Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence.

      “It can’t happen, but it’s football,” McCaffrey said.

      FULLBACK WEAPON: The Panthers might have a new goal line weapon in fullback Alex Armah, who scored on a 1-yard plunge on his first NFL carry.

      Armah’s number was called after C.J. Anderson’s 9-yard run to within two feet of the goal line. The second-year pro out of Division II West Georgia said he wasn’t surprised to get the carry in his 10th career game.

      “I was just ready,” said Armah, who primarily played special teams a year ago. “I wasn’t too nervous because we practice it during the week. We go over it, so I really just tried to get into the end zone.”

      Once he did, Armah chose not to give the ball away despite Newton’s pleading with him. He wanted to keep it to mark the milestone.

      “I don’t blame him,” Rivera said.

      After loading up on defense on Day 2 of the draft Womens Marian Hossa Jersey , the Kansas City Chiefs will try to plug remaining holes on both sides of the ball on Saturday beginning with the fourth round.

      The Chiefs have the 24th pick in the round, along with a sixth-round pick and two choices in the seventh round. But that doesn't mean much considering the Chiefs used none of their original picks Friday night, when they moved around to grab a defensive end Tress Way Jersey , defensive tackle and outside linebacker.

      Kansas City could still use help at cornerback, so general manager Brett Veach may not be done with that side of the ball. Wide receiver, tight end and offensive line are also areas to address Andrew Luck Jersey , especially with a new quarterback in Patrick Mahomes II under center.

      The Philadelphia Phillies have adjusted their rotation for this weekend’s series against the Miami Marlins to allow ace Aaron Nola to pitch in the All-Star Game.

      Nola will move up one day and will draw the start Saturday, while Zach Eflin will pitch on Sunday.

      ”Ultimately what this guy has earned is the right to pitch in the middle of the summer in the All-Star Game,” manager Gabe Kapler said. ”That happens maybe once in a lifetime Anthony Beauvillier Jersey , maybe it happens for him 15 times, but it’s at least worth noting that it’s an honor you have to respect and to respect it fully, you have to consider that you may switch things up a little bit.”

      The 25-year old right-hander is the youngest Philadelphia pitcher selected to an All-Star Game since then-23 year old Cole Hamels received the honor in 2007. Nola is the first Phillies pitcher to receive an All-Star selection in five years.

      Nola has posted a sterling 2.27 ERA with 126 strikeouts over 19 starts and leads the National League with 12 wins. He threw seven shutout innings against Miami on May 2 and has won each of his last four starts.

      If Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell hopes to keep everyone guessing regarding his intentions Luke Schenn Jersey Kids , it’s working.

      Days after dismissing as #fakenews a report that he had been telling teammates he’ll show up and sign his franchise tender on Monday, Bell supplied the true facts by not reporting — in direct contrast with what he did a year ago, while also operating under the tag.

      This latest move in the high-stakes game of chess/checkers/chicken undermines the prediction of Bell’s agent that Bell would repeat his 2017 strategy “barring something exceptional,” and Bell’s own vow to Steelers fans to have his “best season to date.” It becomes difficult to have that best season to date if Bell isn’t preparing for a game to be played in six days.

      There’s still time for Bell to show up for Week One. But there isn’t much time to get ready. And there isn’t much Bell could get at this point by not showing up.

      The Steelers can’t sign Bell to a long-term deal until after the regular season. That said, it’s possible that he hopes for a wink-nod, off-the-record understanding that he’ll get a deal in January — with the key terms understood by both sides. (Yes, this would be unenforceable and a violation of the labor deal. Yes Reggie White Jersey , unenforceable arrangements that violate the labor deal happen from time to time.)

      If that’s the plan, the “something exceptional” resulting in the ongoing absence may have been the flurry of contracts signed in the past week, from receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to quarterback Aaron Rodgers to defensive tackle Aaron Donald to defensive end (now linebacker) Khalil Mack. The first two didn’t hold out, and their deals were good, not great. Donald and Mack held out, and their deals were great, not good. So Bell’s holdout continues Authentic Mats Zuccarello Jersey , in the hopes of also landing a great deal.

      It’s also possible that Bell simply wants more money to play in 2018 than the $14.54 million he’s due to earn. Though the Steelers can’t give him a long-term deal, they can agree to pay more than the amount of the tender.

      Or maybe Bell has decided not to try to have his best season ever but instead to preserve himself for the open market, a position influenced potentially by the weekend ACL tear suffered by 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon. This would point to Bell skipping out on game checks (in the amount of $855,000), showing up as late as possible to get credit for the contract year, and then quite possibly trying to do as little as possible during the final games of the regular season.

      Or maybe Bell is hoping that the Steelers will get sufficiently exasperated with his failure to show up to rescind the tender. The decision and the ability of the Bears to pay huge money to Mack despite being only one week from the start of the regular season suggests that, if Bell were to suddenly land on the open market http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/dion-sims-jersey , someone else would find a way to pay him what he wants or something close to it. Or maybe even more than what he wants.

      The Jaguars announced the signing of second-round pick D.J. Chark to his rookie contract Friday.

      鈥淭his is amazing,鈥?Chark Jr. said, via quotes distributed by the team. 鈥淚t is something you dream about your whole life and to finally put your name on that piece of paper to solidify that you are indeed a player here is a surreal moment. I can鈥檛 even put it in words right now.鈥?/p>

      The Jaguars now have six of their 2018 draft selections under contract: Chark Jr., third-round safet Ronnie Harrison (Alabama), fourth-round offensive lineman Will Richardson (North Carolina State), sixth-round quarterback Tanner Lee (Nebraska), seventh-round linebacker Leon Jacobs (Wisconsin) and seventh-round punt Logan Cooke (Mississippi State). Only first-round defensive lineman Taven Bryan (Florida) remains unsigned.

      The Jaguars selected Chark with the 61st overall choice.

      The LSU receiver appeared in 36 games with 15 starts in his four years with the Tigers Anders Lee Jersey , making 66 receptions for 1,351 yards and six touchdowns. He had a career-high 40 receptions and 874 receiving yards after he took over as a No. 1 receiver in 2017.

      The Jets decided it was time for Mo to go.

      Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson was released by New York on Wednesday Marcus Martin Jersey , ending the one-time Pro Bowl selection’s stint with the team that drafted him in the first round in 2011.

      The long-anticipated move clears $11 million in space under the salary cap, although there will still be a $9 million charge in dead money that will count against the cap. Wilkerson was due to make $16.75 million next season – which would have become fully guaranteed if he remained on New York’s roster by the third day of the league’s new year in March.

      Coupled with running back Matt Forte’s retirement announcement earlier Wednesday, the Jets now have about $90 million in cap space.

      ”I’m disappointed for the team, I’m disappointed for him,” coach Todd Bowles told reporters at the NFL combine in Indianapolis. ”Obviously, it didn’t work out. I have a lot of love for Mo. I still think he’s got a lot of football ahead of him.”

      But that won’t be in New York with the Jets.

      It became increasingly clearer late in the season that the 28-year-old Wilkerson’s time with the Jets was coming to an end. He was benched at New Orleans on Dec. 17 for being late to a team meeting. Wilkerson then sat out the final two games for what Bowles called a ”coach’s decision.”

      The $16.75 million was also fully guaranteed against a serious injury, so the Jets would have been on the hook if Wilkerson got hurt during a game or practice and the injury sidelined him all of next season.

      ”It was a business decision,” Bowles said about the move to release Wilkerson. ”It wasn’t disciplinary at all. It was good for both parties.”

      Wilkerson was the Jets’ highest-paid player and was in the middle of a five-year deal worth $86 million. After vowing during training camp last summer that he would be more of a leader for the Jets, he was disciplined for tardiness twice this past season. He was also benched for one quarter of a game in each of the past two seasons.

      ”I think when you sign a player, you think of the potential he has and you try to help him fulfill that,” general manager Mike Maccagnan told reporters at the combine. ”When something doesn’t work out Womens Victor Rask Jersey , you wish it would have, but it didn’t.”

      The divorce caps what has been a stunning and disappointing fall from grace for Wilkerson, who was a homegrown kid from the Elizabeth and Linden areas of New Jersey and made it big after a terrific college career at Temple.

      He was the 30th overall pick in 2011 and steadily became one of the NFL’s top young defensive ends. Wilkerson made his first Pro Bowl after the 2015 season, but didn’t play in it after breaking his right leg in the Jets’ regular-season finale.

      Despite that, Wilkerson was rewarded by New York with the big contract. He returned in time to start in Week 1 in 2016, but was noticeably affected by lingering issues in his right ankle.

      Wilkerson then got off to a slow start in 2017 while dealing with shoulder and toe injuries. The off-field issues became magnified with the decline in Wilkerson’s play and the one-time fan favorite was knocked by many fans and media for what was being perceived as a subpar work ethic.

      He had just eight sacks in his last 28 games, dating to the start of the 2016 season, including 3 this past season – his lowest total since having three in his rookie season. That came after Wilkerson had a career-high 12 sacks in 2015.

      Wilkerson expressed remorse for his actions in December, saying that he ”let the team down.” But he was also defiant when asked if he deserved the $37 million he made during the last two years.

      ”I feel like I’ve earned everything I’ve gotten,” he said. When asked why he felt that way, Wilkerson replied simply: ”Because I feel like I’ve earned it.”

      For his career Joel Iyiegbuniwe Jersey , Wilkerson has 44 1/2 sacks, one safety, 10 forced fumbles and 405 combined tackles.

      A quirk in the schedule has the Colorado Avalanche about to make their only visit of the season to Northern California — and perhaps not a moment too soon for the San Jose Sharks.

      Looking to end a late-season swoon, San Jose will try to extend its dominance on home ice over playoff-hopeful Colorado on Thursday night.

      The Sharks’ losing streak reached four after falling 4-2 to the Dallas Stars on Tuesday. San Jose gave up three goals in the final 5:17 and managed one shot on goal in the third period.

      “Tough lesson learned, but we still control our own destiny,” Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said.

      San Jose (44-26-10) is second in the Pacific, one point over Anaheim and two ahead of Los Angeles. The Sharks, who have lost twice in overtime to the Wild this season, meet them in the season finale on Saturday at SAP Center.

      Anaheim clinched a spot by beating the Wild on Wednesday, while Los Angeles clinched when St. Louis lost 4-3 to Chicago on Wednesday.

      San Jose winger Logan Couture, who scored his team-high 33rd goal against the Stars http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/michael-gallup-jersey , told the league’s official website that team must find a way to win again.

      “We’re fighting for home ice in the first round here. We have to dial it up. You can’t coast for very long in the NHL and win hockey games,” he said.

      San Jose has dropped both matchups with Colorado in Denver this season, but it’s been a much different story when the teams meet in the Bay Area.

      The Sharks have won 15 of the last 16 matchups dating back to March 2009. San Jose has been held to fewer than three goals twice, while Colorado has scored one goal or fewer 10 times in those contests.

      Martin Jones has two wins — but he also has the only loss — in that span versus the Avs. He also stopped only 34 of 41 shots in this season’s series. Jones, who still needs one win to reach 30 for the third time with San Jose, has been reached for 10 goals while losing three straight starts.

      Backup Aaron Dell has never faced Colorado, which fell to 1-3-1 in its last five games with a 3-1 loss to Los Angeles on Monday.

      “Our mindset is we’re underdogs. We go out there, and we’re having fun. We have a young team, but there are still no excuses. We should be in this playoff spot, and we should be in the playoffs.” Avalanche defenseman Nikita Zadorov said.

      Colorado (42-29-9) holds a one-point lead over the St. Louis Blues for the second wild card in the Western Conference. With one playoff spot up for grabs, the Avs and St. Louis each have two games left — and close the regular season against each other Saturday in Denver.

      Saturday’s game will likely decide the final playoff spot. St. Louis plays at Chicago on Friday.

      “We cannot control what the Blues did or what they are going to do later. We got one game against them Danny Trevathan Jersey , we got a game in San Jose. We need to focus, reload, and then go up there and win those two hockey games,” Zadorov added.

      Jonathan Bernier has surrendered only four goals while beating the Sharks twice this season. Bernier, who’s taken over with Semyon Varlamov (knee) out for the season, has won each of his last two starts in San Jose.

      Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen are tied for the team lead with three points apiece against the Sharks this season.

      MacKinnon, who leads the team with 94 points, needs two goals to reach 40 for the first time in his career. Rantanen is two goals shy of 30 for the season and 50 in his career.

      Norv Turner easily could have opted to keep traveling the world with his wife Charles Clay Jersey , writing country music songs and playing with his grandchildren.

      At 66, who would have blamed him?

      Instead, Turner decided to return for a 33rd season of NFL coaching as offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers.

      Turner, who won two Super Bowls as a coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys in the early 1990s, wasn’t necessarily looking to return to coaching after sitting out last season. But when approached about the Panthers’ job opening, Turner couldn’t resist the chance to reunite with head coach Ron Rivera – Turner’s assistant for four seasons when he was head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

      He’s also joining his son, Panthers quarterbacks coach Scott Turner Roger Staubach Jersey , and has the opportunity to coach a ”talented group” of players that includes 2015 league MVP quarterback Cam Newton.

      ”It’s a unique situation,” Turner said.

      Turner joins a team that has his fingerprints all over it.

      When Rivera was hired by the Panthers in 2011 – also Newton’s rookie season – he brought in Turner understudy Rob Chudzinski as his offensive coordinator. And when Mike Shula took over when Chudzinski left to coach the Cleveland Browns, many of Turner’s play calls remained. So it’s not like Turner is starting anew.

      But he does have some new ideas.

      ”We are trying to build a complete offense and that will include things they have done here and it will include things they haven’t done here,” said Turner without elaborating on specifics.

      Newton said the onus has been on Turner ”to take what we have done good and expand on it, rather than just ripping the sheets of paper up and having a this-is-my-way-or-the-highway mentality.”

      So far the two say they’ve bonded well.

      Turner was familiar with Newton because Scott worked with him during his first two seasons with the Panthers in his first stint as quarterbacks coach.

      Turner said he likes the way Newton sees the entire field, but that his goal is to improve the quarterback’s decision-making skills.

      ”We want to make sure we get all of our eligible receivers involved,” Turner said.

      Turner also wants to see Newton’s career 58.1 completion percentage increase significantly Jay Novacek Jersey , something Newton has already said he’s eager to work on.

      ”That has to be my mentality,” Newton said . ”We have a lot of guys who can take two yards and turn it into 20 yards, or more. But it starts with me and I have to trust those guys and get the ball to them.”

      The Panthers talked last season about limiting the wear and tear on Newton’s body after undergoing rotator cuff surgery in March 2017 by cutting down on his running.

      Newton is 29 and entering his eighth NFL season.

      But Turner put no restrictions on Newton, Carolina’s leading rusher last season and the NFL’s all-time leader in touchdowns rushing by a quarterback, when he spoke after practice Thursday.

      ”Every game is different and all of sudden you are in a game where they are pressuring and he puts the ball down and runs three or four times, and then you have three or four runs called. … so there are games where he is going to carry the ball,” Turner said. ”And there are games where he is not going to carry the ball. A lot depends on how people defend us. A lot depends on how well we are playing Womens Tom Pyatt Jersey , too.”

      Turner did reiterate Rivera’s point that Christian McCaffrey will be a focal point of the offense, saying that 20-25 touches per game is not out of the question for the second-year running back.

      The man who co-wrote a country music song called “Things I’ve Never Done,” with Stephen Ray, the son of former San Francisco 49ers head coach Steve Mariucci, is clearly enjoying the idea of doing what he’s done for more than three decades.

      It is, after all, a unique situation for him.

      ”I am very comfortable with coach Rivera and the things he likes to do Charles Leno Jersey ,” Turner said. ”We were together for four years, so nothing is a shock to me.”

      The Oakland Raiders will likely look to add some defensive help in rounds two and three on the second day of the NFL draft.

      After taking tackle Kolton Miller and trading for receiver Martavis Bryant on the opening day, the Raiders could use help on defense Friday night with the 41st and 75th overall picks.

      The Raiders added two picks while moving down five spots in the first round before taking Miller 15th overall and then dealt one of those picks to Pittsburgh for Bryant.

      Oakland also has nine picks on Day 3, giving them the opportunity to use some of those selections to move up on Friday if they are targeting a specific player.

      MIAMI — San Francisco Giants rookie Dereck Rodriguez is thrilled to be in the major leagues while Miami Marlins veteran Dan Straily is just relieved he’s not on the disabled list.

      Rodriguez and Straily will go at each other in Thursday’s finale to this four-game series. The Marlins (26-42) have won the first three games against the Giants (33-35) including Wednesday’s 5-4 victory Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey , which ended with Brian Anderson’s walk-off sacrifice fly in the ninth inning.

      As for Rodriguez (1-1, 5.25 ERA in three starts), he is the son of Hall of Fame catcher Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez.

      Meanwhile, Straily (2-2, 4.08 ERA) survived last week when he got hit by a 110-mph line drive off the bat of San Diego Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer. It was a terrifying play, but Straily escaped with bruised ribs and did not miss a start.

      “It definitely took the wind out of me,” Straily said of the Hosmer line drive. “I felt myself kind of spinning around.

      “When you get hit, you don’t really remember it — you kind of have a momentary blackout. Your body takes over, whether it’s adrenaline or whatever the actual reaction is … You don’t feel anything for a few minutes.”

      Straily said it wasn’t until he left the game after 3 2/3 innings that he felt “a little bit of soreness” while back in the locker room.

      “It’s never anything you want to deal with Jonathan Marchessault Jersey , but you keep going forward,” he said. “We all know that we (pitchers) stand the closest to home plate, but you can’t let that stuff bother you or you won’t be able to pitch. You can’t let that be a fear.”

      Straily said x-rays were negative — no broken bones.

      “If there were any doubt that I’m not 100 percent, I wouldn’t be on the mound,” Straily said. “It’s not about trying to be a tough guy or having a lot of pride.”

      The Marlins are 5-3 when Straily starts, but he has allowed 10 runs (nine earned) in his past 13 2/3 innings. He has just two quality starts this season — both on the road — May 18 and 23.

      In fact, Straily has been better on the road (1-2, 2.67 ERA in five starts) as opposed to his home numbers (1-0, 7.11 ERA Johnny Unitas Jersey , three starts).

      A promising note for Straily is the fact that he is 4-0 with a 2.43 ERA in five career starts against San Francisco.

      His counterpart Thursday, whose full name is Ivan Dereck Rodriguez, is 26 years old and has endured a long journey to get to the majors.

      Rodriguez was an outfielder at two South Florida high schools, Hollywood Chaminade and Monsignor Pace. He was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the sixth round in 2011 and switched positions to pitcher late in the 2013 season.

      It wasn’t until last year that he finally got to Double A, going 5-4 with a 3.94 ERA in 15 appearances (13 starts).

      This year, he went 4-1 with a 3.40 ERA in nine starts at Triple-A Sacramento, earning his promotion to the majors May 29.

      Rodriguez lasted only 3 1/3 innings in his debut, allowing five hits, one walk and four runs (one earned) at the Colorado Rockies.

      His next start Authentic Patrick Mahomes Jersey , at home against the Philadelphia Phillies, marked his only major league win as Rodriguez picked up a quality start, allowing one run, five hits and two walks in six innings.

      However, Rodriguez allowed five runs in 2 2/3 innings last week against the Washington Nationals, and that has produced an early trend in which he is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in two road starts.

      He clearly has a long way to match the exploits of his father, who was a 14-time All-Star and a 13-time Gold Glove winner. Pudge also won a World Series championship in 2003, his only year with the Marlins.

      “I was there almost every game,” Dereck Rodriguez told the Sun-Sentinel when asked about that 2003 season. “I remember everything. It was a year to remember Troy Aikman Jersey , honestly. I spent a lot of time on the field with the guys. It was a lot of fun.”

      Rodriguez can jack up his fastball to 95 mph, which is not surprising given what a strong arm was possessed by Pudge.

      Giants manager Bruce Bochy praised Dereck Rodriguez for having good command of four pitches.

      “Being a converted (pitcher), it’s impressive how fast he has come on,” Bochy said. “He earned the promotion with the way he was throwing in Sacramento.”

      The Jacksonville Jaguars are bringing back veteran linebacker Lerentee McCray.

      McCray signed with the Jaguars on Monday. He had been an unrestricted free agent after signing a one-year deal with Jacksonville in 2017.

      McCray says he’s ”been waiting to find a home and I’m excited to be back here and finish the unfinished business that we left last year.”

      The 6-foot-3, 249-pound McCray recorded a career-high nine special teams tackles in 13 games last season. He previously spent time with Buffalo and Green Bay after signing as an undrafted rookie with Denver in 2013.

      McCray has played in 50 games over five seasons, notching 28 tackles and three sacks.

      McCray won a Super Bowl in 2015 with the Broncos and was a key member of special teams, where he played for current Jaguars special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis.

      President Donald Trump said Friday he expects to welcome the hometown Washington Capitals hockey team to the White House for winning the Stanley Cup. But he adds: "If they don't want to be here Zack Smith Jersey , I don't want them."

      Trump congratulated the Capitals on his Twitter feed after the team won the NHL title with a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. He singled out series MVP Alex Ovechkin as "a true Superstar" and said the city is "popping" after the Capitals won the team's first Stanley Cup championship.

      The president spoke to reporters on the South Lawn days after he canceled a visit by the Philadelphia Eagles to commemorate their Super Bowl victory after most of the players decided to skip the ceremony.

      Before departing for an international summit in Canada, Trump said he wouldn't invite either the Golden State Warriors or the Cleveland Cavaliers, the two teams in the NBA Finals, but added, "we have other teams that are coming."

      Trump pointed out that he's had several championship teams at the White House, including the NFL's New England Patriots and the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins.

      "I think we'll have the Caps. I mean, we'll see," Trump said. "You know, my attitude: If they want to be here, it's the greatest place on Earth, I'm here. If they don't want to be here Womens Alexander Steen Jersey , I don't want them."

      Trump tweeted after the Capitals' victory: "Congratulations to the Washington Capitals on their GREAT play and winning the Stanley Cup Championship. Alex Ovechkin, the team captain, was spectacular - a true Superstar! D.C. is popping, in many ways. What a time!"

      BOSTON — The Boston Celtics host the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night in a regular-season finale that won’t affect the postseason.

      But while the Celtics go through the motions on Fan Appreciation Night, they will have a collective eye trained on the out-of-town scoreboard.

      They are waiting to see who they will play in the first round of the playoffs that begin this weekend.

      Tuesday night, second-seeded Boston had a chance to bury the Washington Wizards in the eighth spot in the final standings, leaving Washington in a first-round matchup with the top-seeded Toronto Raptors.

      But the Celtics were thumped 113-101 by the Wizards, a team that played half the season without an injured John Wall and one you might want to avoid in the playoffs — with Wall rounding into shape. With the win, the Wizards, who engaged in a mean-spirited seven-game series against the Celtics last year, remained in a three-team scramble with the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat.

      Through Tuesday Tuukka Rask Jersey , the Bucks were in sixth place, a game ahead of the Heat and Wizards — the Heat holding the 7-8 tiebreaker with Washington.

      The Bucks will try to end the Philadelphia 76ers’ 15-game winning streak in Philadelphia (where the Sixers can clinch the third seed) Wednesday, thus finishing sixth — and also avoiding surrendering their No. 1 draft choice to the Phoenix Suns by finishing seventh or eighth.

      Miami hosts Toronto in yet another potential first-round matchup and while the Raptors have clinched first in the East, they are in a close battle with the Golden State Warriors, second in the West, for home-court advantage in a potential final.

      The Wizards, 3-1 against Boston this season, are at the out-of-the-money Orlando Magic Wednesday night for the back end of a back-to-back.

      In one scenario, if the Sixers win their 16th straight win, Washington and Toronto win on Wednesday night, the Celtics face No. 7 Milwaukee Derick Brassard Jersey , which loses its draft pick.

      Yes, it’s complicated.

      Before Tuesday’s game, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, “(The last-minute seeding) is no more than of a stress on our staff than the staff we’re playing against. At the end of the day, we’ll work and be ready to play Saturday or Sunday, whenever we play.”

      Regardless of who they play, the Celtics, who have lost four of their last five, will be without Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis, although they did get some good news Monday on Marcus Smart.

      The energetic Smart Tom Kuhnhackl Jersey , who had surgery to repair a tear in his right thumb, is on target for a six-week return, which would be later this month. But he still won’t be around in the opening round — the loss of Irving and Smart putting more of a burden on Terry Rozier, who has slumped and also suffered from an ankle injury in the last four weeks.

      The Celtics are 3-0 against Brooklyn this season, but the three wins have been by a total of 12 points — and Irving was the leading scorer in each of the three games.

      The Nets have won three straight — their first three-game winning streak of the season — and are 7-5 in their last 12 after losing 18 of 21.

      “Things are maybe turning that corner that we wanted to get a little early in the season, but it’s better late than never,” Allen Crabbe said after his career-high 41 points led his team to a 114-105 win over the Chicago Bulls Monday night.

      Boston is 7-0 against Brooklyn over the last two seasons.

      Like he does with so many things Kevin Hayes Jersey , Sidney Crosby makes it look easy.

      There was the time he shot the puck off the post and swatted the rebound into the net out of midair. Or, the time he waited for the puck to drop and backhanded it in for a goal. Or, when knocked the puck up to himself with his stick before tapping it in.

      ”I think it’s just instincts,” Crosby said.

      It’s actually a mix of natural talent, instincts, awareness, timing, patience and hand-eye coordination. Crosby’s Pittsburgh teammates are still amazed every time he does it – and they should be.

      ”It’s just a reactionary thing,” Penguins winger Conor Sheary said. ”When you see the puck go in the air http://www.officialblues.com/authentic-adidas-dmitrij-jaskin-jersey , you just try to bat it. He’s better at it than a lot of other guys, and I don’t know what that is.”

      Batting a fluttering piece of frozen rubber 3 inches in diameter and 1-inch thick with a stick blade 2 to 3 inches wide is no simple task. Doing it at full speed in an NHL playoff game certainly raises the degree of difficulty. Yet a handful of goals have been scored or saved already this postseason with a player somehow able to connecting their stick with an airborne puck at the perfect time.

      As recently as Tuesday night, Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin batted the puck out of the air off the post in Crosby-esque fashion for the game-winner to beat the Penguins.

      ”I hit the post and it’s a good thing I didn’t raise my arms up,” Ovechkin said. ”I finished up the play and got lucky.”

      Teams don’t have drills for this kind of thing, but hockey players are always noodling with the puck, so the familiarity with both stick and puck becomes ingrained at an early age. Playing baseball and other sports growing up can’t hurt. Washington Capitals forward Brett Connolly, who scored a baseball-style goal with Boston in 2015, thinks players learn the skill and try to use it when they can.

      ”Your athleticism kind of takes over at that point,” Connolly said. ”Once your hand-eye is at a high level Drew Doughty Jersey , you kind of track the puck. I think as hockey players we’re always looking around, we’re so quick, our eyes are all over the place and we’re staring at the puck. You kind of just take a chance at it and sometimes it works out.”

      It worked out for Toronto’s Connor Brown on his goal in Game 5 of the first round when the puck bounced off a defenseman’s stick and he knocked it in before goaltender Tuukka Rask knew where it was. Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky didn’t know where the puck was when captain Nick Foligno whacked it out of the air to prevent a goal during the first round against Washington, either, a product of years of work.

      ”That was actually my guy, so the least I could do was bat it out,” Foligno said. ”Honestly, I practice it so much with playing around with the puck that you just get used to it playing so many years. Obviously, a little bit of luck to make sure you get it out and not hit somewhere else.”

      To the surprise of no one Ryan McDonagh Jersey , Crosby’s career is full of similar highlights. He once slugged a home run during batting practice at PNC Park some years ago.

      On the ice, Crosby doesn’t have to hit the puck as hard as Aaron Judge hits a baseball or as precisely as Roger Federer hits a tennis ball, but Penguins winger Bryan Rust correctly points out: ”They’re also looking for it to be in the air. Our sport, the puck’s not supposed to be in the air.”

      Crosby and others figure it out anyway.

      ”There’s a lot of things you’ve got to be aware of, and you need pucks to be in those areas to do it,” Crosby said. ”Sometimes you can go a period of time where you don’t get a puck that sits right there for you. I’ve been around the net when pucks have been able to kind of just lay there for me. There’s a lot of different factors, but I think just being in and around the net trying to expect different things and being ready for it.”

      Playing peewee baseball explains some of it for Crosby, a two-time season and playoff MVP who works on redirecting and bating pucks so often in practice it has become a routine way for him to score.

      Not so much for others, like Bruins forward Sean Kuraly Joonas Donskoi Jersey , who played the waiting game during Game 1 of Boston’s series against Toronto and batted the puck in while falling over Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen.

      ”You have to wait for the puck to come down,” the otherwise-impatient Kuraly said. ”I’m a terrible baseball player. It has nothing to do with baseball.”

      Goalies with thicker blades on their sticks get into the act, too. Andersen robbed Rick Nash on a sure-fire goal in the first round in Game 6, and Pittsburgh’s Matt Murray extended his stick to stop Ovechkin in Game 2 of the Penguins-Capitals series.

      Goaltenders are counted on to keep the puck out by any means necessary.

      Scoring a goal by batting the puck in? Well, that’s just fun.

      ”It’s a creative game. You’ve got to mix it up and be creative,” Connolly said. ”To score, you’ve got to try and do something different sometimes to get one.”

      FLORHAM PARK Alex DeBrincat Jersey , N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have released kicker Cairo Santos, a day after claiming Jason Myers off waivers from Seattle.

      The team signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis to the active roster with its corresponding move Wednesday.

      No, the seven-time All-Pro is not returning. The one-day contract he signed last month to retire as a member of the Jets was officially submitted since New York had a spot on its 90-man roster.

      Santos signed with the Jets in March, but was unable to kick in training camp because of a groin injury suffered late last season while with Chicago. Coach Todd Bowles says New York could add another kicker to compete with Myers and Taylor Bertolet.

      Wide receiver Jonah Trinnaman Authentic David Pastrnak Jersey , who was waived-injured Tuesday, was unclaimed and reverted to the Jets’ injured reserve list. He doesn’t count against the 90-man roster.

      Buffalo Bills owner Kim Pegula doesn’t seem particularly optimistic about the chances of the Bills getting a new stadium in the greater Buffalo area anytime soon.

      According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, the current lease with Buffalo for New Era Field expires after the 2022 season.

      鈥淚 don鈥檛 even know if we can get there,鈥?Pegula said.. 鈥淚 know fans in Buffalo don鈥檛 want higher ticket prices Andrew Shaw Jersey , they don鈥檛 want PSLs (personal seat licenses).

      The venue replaced War Memorial Stadium as the home stadium for the Bills upon its opening in 1973 and has played host to the team ever since. It was renovated in 1998 and had additional renovations completed in 2014. An additional privately funded $18 million renovation is also in the works.

      The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Soldier Field, Lambeau Field Kyle Okposo Jersey , Oakland Coliseum and Arrowhead Stadium are the only stadiums in the NFL older that New Era Field. However, the Rams and Raiders are leaving their homes for new stadiums in Inglewood, Calif. and Las Vegas in 2020, and Soldier Field and Lambeau Field have had significant renovations to their original designs done in 2003.

      Titans linebacker Kevin Dodd has been placed on the "did not report" list Nate Schmidt Jersey , putting his future with Tennessee in question.

      The first pick of the second round in 2016 out of Clemson, Dodd skipped voluntary offseason workouts before reporting for the team's mandatory minicamp in June. Dodd has started only one of 18 games played over his first two seasons, but the Titans hiring Mike Vrabel as head coach in January appeared to be the perfect chance at a fresh start for Dodd with a new coaching staff and new defensive coordinator Dean Pees.

      Yet Dodd only reported to the Titans' offseason program in June when staying away would have meant a fine. He declined to talk to reporters the two days players had access to players.

      Quarterbacks, rookies and players who finished the offseason program with injuries were required to report Sunday ahead of the rest of the Titans coming Wednesday with the team's first practice Thursday.

      Linebacker Rashaan Evans, the No. 22 pick overall, was out with a "non-football illness" along with wide receiver Michael Campanaro. Defensive tackle Mike Ramsay was listed as "non-football injury."

      As expected, starting right tackle Jack Conklin was placed on the physically unable to perform list. Conklin tore his left ACL in the team's divisional playoff loss to the Patriots in January . Tight end Phillip Supernaw also was placed on the physical unable to perform list.

      In the topsy-turvy NFC playoffs, only the Falcons return from last year, and they sneaked in as the sixth and final team. They narrowly avoided the same fate as the Cowboys, Seahawks, Packers, Giants and Lions – all sitting this one out.

      The top five seeds are newcomers Brayden Schenn Jersey , led by the Eagles. They are going with a backup quarterback and are making their first trip to the postseason party since 2013. The Vikings are back after a year away, hoping to become the first team to ever play a Super Bowl in its home stadium .

      The five new teams went a combined 32-48 in 2016 but 59-21 this season, providing hope to all those franchises and fans who are already preparing for free agency and the draft.

      The field features just two Super Bowl winners, the Rams at the turn of the century when they were based in St. Louis, and the Saints in 2010, when they upset the Colts and Peyton Manning.

      The Rams, in the playoffs for the first time since 2004, host the Falcons on Saturday in the showcase of wild-card weekend. The Saints, who ended a four-year playoff drought, host the Panthers on Sunday.

      Strength and weakness of each team:

      1. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (13-3). No Lombardis: lost Super Bowl 15 to Oakland in 1981 and Super Bowl 39 to New England in 2005.

      Hope: The Eagles have the NFL’s third-ranked rushing offense with three productive backs: Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement. They’ll have to rely on them more to take pressure off QB Nick Foles and a passing attack that has struggled since second-year sensation Carson Wentz tore his left ACL in December, a major blow to the Eagles’ bounce-back season .

      Nope: Foles isn’t Wentz Authentic Justin Bailey Jersey , who was a leading MVP candidate when he got hurt. But the offense still has plenty of pop and talent, and Foles has the ability to get on a roll. He needs to develop more chemistry with receivers during the bye, be more consistent and avoid mistakes. Otherwise, the Eagles could fall into the trap that befell the Cowboys last year when Dallas became the first No. 1 seed not to reach the Super Bowl since 2013.

      The Dope: ”We’ve got some good work the last couple of weeks with Nick, and we’ll go back and evaluate all of that. We have to get better in the run game. That helps any quarterback obviously, so we have to get better there. Then just taking a look at what his strengths are, strengths and weaknesses. Everything at this time of the year now becomes magnified even more going into the postseason.” – coach Doug Pederson.

      2. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (13-3). No Lombardis: Lost Super Bowl 4 to Kansas City in 1970, Super Bowl 8 to Miami in 1974, Super Bowl 9 to Pittsburgh in 1975 and Super Bowl 11 to Oakland in 1977.

      Hope: The defense , with all due respect to QB Case Keenum and the job he’s done. The Vikings ranked second in the league in both fewest rushing yards and fewest passing yards allowed, so there’s not really a one preferred way to attack them. No team gave up fewer points, either. With Pro Bowl picks at each of the three position groups yet a selfless attitude that’s kept individual players from chasing splashy plays or padding statistics at the expense of the scheme Tyler Seguin Jersey , coach Mike Zimmer’s unit will be a challenge for any opposing QB, especially in Minnesota at raucous U.S. Bank Stadium.

      Nope: There aren’t many culprits, but Kai Forbath will certainly be a person of interest. Vikings fans still wince thinking about stunningly missed field goals by Gary Anderson (1998) and Blair Walsh (2015) that cost their team seemingly certain postseason victories. Forbath has been better than his predecessor Walsh, but he has missed eight extra points in 23 games with the Vikings. He also missed five of 15 field goals over the last seven games of this season.

      The Dope: ”Guys have to understand that you have an opportunity here to do some great things and you have to take advantage of that opportunity. If you don’t, you’ll probably regret it for the rest of your life.” – DE Brian Robison.

      3. LOS ANGELES RAMS (11-5). Last Lombardi: Super Bowl 34, beat Tennessee 23-16 on Jan. 30, 2000, while based in St. Louis.

      Hope: The NFL’s most surprising comeback story shows few signs of ending prematurely. L.A. has the talent and smarts on both sides of the ball, with the league’s highest-scoring offense led by QB Jared Goff and MVP hopeful RB Todd Gurley. The Wade Phillips-led defense remains a strength with DT Aaron Donald disrupting offenses weekly. Rookie coach Sean McVay has outsmarted his older foes with impressive regularity.

      Nope: They can’t act like they’ve been here before, because they haven’t. Only six Rams have any playoff experience whatsoever, easily the fewest in the current field. McVay, Goff Jake Guentzel Jersey Kids , Gurley and Donald have never been under the postseason spotlight, where every mistake is magnified. So the big question is whether they’ll continue to thrive under pressure or crater.

      The Dope: ”There is a lot of value in experience. This is a very humbling business. … You try to learn from the experiences that you do have and not try to repeat the same mistakes twice. But I think, for a younger team, we’ve demonstrated a maturity throughout the course of the year.” – McVay, who was born 20 days after the Rams last hosted a playoff game in Southern California on Jan. 4, 1986.

      4. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (11-5). Last Lombardi: Super Bowl 44, beat Indianapolis 31-17 on Feb. 7, 2010.

      Hope: Although Brees passed for his fewest yards (4,334) since joining the Saints in 2006, he was as efficient as ever, setting a single-season record with his 72 percent completion ra Womens Arizona Cardinals Jerseys

      The NFL just awarded its 2019 Draft to Nashville Vladimir Sobotka Jersey , and the jockeying for the next one has already begun.

      A joint bid between Cleveland and Canton, Ohio was considered this year, but the timing is probably better next season anyway.

      The Pro Football Hall of Fame is gearing up for a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the sport in 2020, and hosting at the shrine of the game’s history will add a layer of interest to an event which has transcended the reading off of names.

      Hall of Fame president and CEO David Baker congratulated the Nashville bid, but made it clear what he was hoping for.

      “The Hall of Fame in partnership with the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Sports Commission and Visit Canton stand ready to host the NFL Draft in 2020 should we be selected,” Baker said. “In the meantime Rasmus Ristolainen Jersey , the Hall and the entire Canton region remains focused on preparing for the once-in-every-other-lifetime opportunity in 2020 to celebrate the NFL鈥檚 Centennial in Canton, the birthplace of the league.鈥?/p>

      The historical angle makes this seem like one of those confluences which makes too much sense not to happen, though other cities have been eager to get in the mix, as the league turns the selection meeting into another marketing opportunity. Denver, Kansas City and Las Vegas were mentioned as finalists for one of the next two drafts, but none of those places happens to be the birthplace of professional football.

      The Packers, Cowboys Frederik Andersen Jersey , Raiders and Bengals will each receive four compensatory picks in April's draft.

      The NFL announced Friday that 32 such selections will be split among 15 teams. Compensatory picks are awarded to teams who lost more or better compensatory free agents than they acquired in the previous year.

      For example, Arizona lost defensive lineman Calais Campbell, who became a 2017 All-Pro with Jacksonville. Same thing with Cincinnati losing tackle Andrew Whitworth, who was an All-Pro with the Rams last season.

      All compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost. Receiving selections in the third round are the Cardinals, Texans, Broncos and Bengals at Nos. 97-100 overall.

      In the fourth round, Green Bay Duncan Keith Jersey , Arizona, the New York Giants, New England and Dallas will have picks, from Nos. 133-137.

      Cincinnati has one spot and Dallas and Green Bay each have two spots at the end of the fifth round. All four of Oakland's choices will be in the sixth round, when Houston and Minnesota have two selections each, and Baltimore, Green Bay Ryan Johansen Jersey , Dallas and Kansas City each have one.

      At the end of the final round, the Bengals have two picks, while the Chargers, Buccaneers, Cardinals and Falcons each have one.

      The NFL and NFL Players Association had their first major effort to resolve the anthem situation 17 days ago. Despite some initial optimism James Neal Jersey , as publicly hinted by Steelers owner Art Rooney II, it currently appears that, while there eventually may be a resolution, there still will be no solution.

      Peter King reports in his latest Football Morning in America column that, according to one unnamed source, there are doubts that the end result will include all players standing for the anthem. Which gets back to something I was told three weeks ago: There’s no end game for the anthem controversy.

      Two weeks ago, some believed maybe there was. Some thought maybe, just maybe, the union, which doesn’t need unanimity to agree to rule changes Michael Frolik Jersey , would tie the hands of those who would kneel or otherwise protest during the anthem. The problem, however, is that even though the NFL Players Association can get things done with simple majorities, it’s not nearly as simple as having a majority of players or player representatives wipe away rights currently exercised by a very small percentage of the rank and file.

      Even if the 99 percent of players who aren’t protesting were to agree on behalf of the 100 percent to stand, some percentage of the one percent would resist, and possibly would continue to protest — creating a situation in which the protests become even more significant and noteworthy.

      King makes no bones about blaming the current mess on Commissioner Roger Goodell, and King is right to say, as he does, that on this issue Goodell has failed to lead. But King misses the mark just a bit by suggesting that Goodell should have sprung to action last September to resolve the situation with De Smith, Goodell’s counterpart at the NFLPA.

      By last September Authentic Nail Yakupov Jersey , it was already too late. Goodell should have engaged Smith the moment former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was spotted sitting during the anthem in August 2016, and Goodell and Smith should have worked out a deal that fixed the loophole the league created.

      And that’s where a hostile, cantankerous, belligerent relationship between management and labor can hurt both sides. Because Goodell and Smith don’t enjoy the kind of trust that their respective predecessors, Paul Tagliabue and Gene Upshaw, shared, Goodell and Smith aren’t able to quickly fashion win-win outcomes. Also, given the league’s desire to not just win but crush the opponent during any and all negotiations, Goodell and the league never, ever would have gone to Smith and the union and said Dmitry Kulikov Jersey , “Um, we have a little problem. Can we work together to solve it before it becomes a big problem?”

      If Goodell had engaged Smith two years ago this month, Smith justifiably could have responded by saying, “So, you have a little problem? How did that little problem come to be?”

      The honest answer would have been, “Well, we made the problem because someone wrote the policy in a way that created an unintended loophole, requiring players to be on the sideline for the anthem but not requiring them to actually stand for the anthem.” And the candid reply from Smith very well may have been, “That stinks for you.”

      The bottom line is that the NFL made this mess by creating the right to protest and then, when a player chose to protest http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-brad-hunt-jersey , acknowledged that, indeed, players have the right to protest. Two years later, every headache and hassle relating to the anthem flows from the league’s failures in that regard, and it seems that the issue long ago made it past the point of no return.

      New Orleans Saints receiver Travin Dural and center Cameron Tom each have been injured at Saints training camp.

      Both went down with apparent upper body injuries during practice on Sunday.

      Dural is a second-year pro out of LSU who spent his rookie year on the practice squad.

      Tom, who is from Baton Rouge and played in college for Southern Miss, is entering his third NFL season.

      Both players were able to walk with trainers off the practice field.

      Also walking off the field shortly before practice ended was starting left tackle Terron Armstead, but it was not clear if he was injured or struggling with hot conditions.

      Saints coach Sean Payton did not have updates on any of those players when he spoke immediately after practice.
