Turner Sports weighing return to NFL; would face heavy competition for rights

NEW YORK — Remember the “NFL on TNT”? There could be a reboot in the next few years.

Turner Sports is considering a possible bid for NFL television rights in 2022 after the league’s current deals expire.

“We’re always looking at the NFL. Everyone looks at the NFL. You’d have to be crazy not to look at the NFL,” Will Funk, Turner’s executive vice president of property marketing and corporate partnerships, told Sporting News during Turner’s annual upfront presentation.

Funk, though, cautioned, “It’s got to be the right fit for us, like everything else we’re doing.”

A return to the NFL by TNT after an absence of two decades would make a lot of sense. Remember, TNT split the Sunday night package with ESPN from 1990-97.

Overriding the two-season rule “would put an undue risk to the Super Bowl and our fans,” commissioner Roger Goodell said at a news conference Tuesday.

Tampa had been the runner-up in the last host-selection round and was quick to step in and fill the void. The city has hosted the Super Bowl four times, most recently after the 2008 season when the Steelers edged the Cardinals for their most recent title.

“The Tampa Bay area has enjoyed great success over the years hosting Super Bowls and we look forward to working with our local leaders in the coming months to meet the requirements for Cheap Jerseys MLB With Free Shipping hosting Super Bowl LV in 2021,” Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer said in a release. “Today’s announcement offers us the opportunity to showcase Tampa Bay’s unique ability to come together as a host for world-class Cheap Jerseys In US events.”

Rams COO Kevin Demoff said the Rams will continue to work “to deliver the elements promised in the bid that was approved last year.”

Breaking down new-look Bears: Pressure to avoid chaos mounts amid changes

Change is welcome in Chicago after a 3-13 season, its worst in more than 30 years, and a third consecutive last-place finish in the NFC North. And change is what the Bears will get.

The eight-year Jay Cutler era, sprinkled with sparks but drenched in disappointment, ended when the Bears released the quarterback at the start of the 2017 league year — right before they signed Mike Glennon to a 3-year, $45 million deal.

“We can confirm his passing and at this time there is nothing suspicious to report,” Orlando police Sgt. Wanda Miglio told Omnisport, “but we are conducting an investigation regarding his unattended passing.”

The cause of Kennedy’s death remained unknown as of early Tuesday afternoon.

Kennedy spent his entire 11-year career in Seattle after being selected by the Seahawks with the No. 3 overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft. He started 153 of 167 games, recording 668 tackles, 58 sacks and three interceptions.

An eight-time Pro Bowl and five-time All-Pro selection, Kennedy additionally earned Defensive Player of the Year honors in 1992 and later became just the second Seahawk to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012. His No. 96 jersey has also been retired by the Seahawks.

Four men — three from the United Kingdom and one from Cheap Jerseys Direct Germany — are getting chances to realize NFL dreams in 2017.

As part of the NFL’s new International Player Pathway Program, Alex Gray (Falcons, from UK), Alex Jenkins (Saints, from UK), Eric Nzeocha (Buccaneers, from Germany) and Efe Obada (Panthers, from UK) will be carried on their respective teams’ practice squads during Cheap Jerseys America the 2017 season, the league announced Thursday.

NFL ‘monitoring’ whether to suspend Bengals’ Adam Jones following guilty plea

Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones pleaded guilty Tuesday to the misdemeanor charge of obstructing official business and was sentenced to two days and jail, with credit for time served.

Jones was arrested in January following an incident at a Cincinnati hotel and charged with assault and disorderly conduct in addition to the obstruction count. He faced a felony charge of harassment with a bodily substance after police claimed he spit on a female officer after arriving at jail, but that charge was previously dismissed.

With the Chiefs so high on Mahomes, Smith sees similar writing on the wall.

“I think (the Chiefs are) committed to me (only) through this year,” Smith said in his first public comments since the draft, per ESPN.com. “That’s just the nature of it. If you don’t go out there and perform, I mean, coach (Andy) Reid and (quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy) are very honest. You’ve got to go out there and do your deal. We all have to.”
Smith, who has two seasons left on his Cheap Hockey Jerseys contract, added, “Whether or not we drafted Patrick, it doesn’t change that, right? If you’re not good enough and didn’t get it done, you’re not going to be around long. That’s just our culture. I know it. That’s the nature of the position.”

The Chiefs have had a winning record in all four seasons since Smith and Reid joined the team, making the playoffs three times. But they’ve never advanced past the divisional round of the playoffs, and offense – particularly the passing game – has long been a weakness.

Draft bust Justin Gilbert suspended four games by NFL, report says

Has Justin Gilbert gone from bust to busted?

The free-agent cornerback, a 2014 first-round pick Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys cut twice in three years, has been suspended for the first four weeks of the 2017 season, NFL Network reported, citing unidentified sources. A separate NFL Network report said the suspension was due to violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Drafted eighth overall by the Browns but released after two seasons and then cut again this offseason by the Steelers, Gilbert, 25, has yet to catch on with another team. Thursday’s news likely won’t help.

In 35 games, Gilbert has 36 tackles and one interception.

Williams hasn’t been effective since 2014 and limped to the finish line last year with a career-low 1.5 sacks. He made a hefty salary as the top overall draft pick in 2006 Cheap Flag Football Jerseys and then broke the bank with the Bills on a ludicrous contract. That said, it’s doubtful he wants to play for $1 million-$2 million, which means he might not play in 2017.

Odrick had one of many overvalued contracts signed by the Jaguars over the last few seasons. He missed 10 games last year, but that was the first time he missed any games since 2010. He’s versatile and, if healthy, will probably be added to a team in need of situational help on the defensive line. He shouldn’t cost much and could be a good addition to a contender.

Mariners to retire Edgar Martinez’s No. 11 this season

By the way, Cobb was enshrined in the very first BBWAA election, in 1936. Yeah.

You can read my longer explanation here, but essentially, I’ve taken this view: The Hall of Fame should reflect the game as it is, warts and all.

Anyway, that’s not my point today. As I said earlier, I want to talk about Manny Ramirez.

I put an X next to the box by Manny’s name, as I did for the boxes next to Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens. I’ve read columns from a lot of my voting colleagues who have drawn a line of distinction between Manny and Bonds/Clemens, and they’ve cast their ballot for the latter two but not Manny. The difference is obvious, of course. Bonds and Clemens, even though everybody knows they did at least some of the things they’ve been accused of, were never actually caught and punished by baseball.

Mark your calendars, Mariners fans. A big name will be honored this season.

The team announced Tuesday it will retire Edgar Martinez’s No. 11 this summer, which he wore in each in each of his 18 seasons in Seattle.

The Mariners will host a weekend in honor of Martinez from Aug. 11-13 with the Angels in town. The number retirement ceremony is set for Aug. 12.

Martinez’s will become the second player to have his Cheap Elite Jerseys number retired by Seattle. It will hang next to Ken Griffey Jr.’s No. 24.

Martinez played his entire career with the Mariners from 1986-2004 and retired with a career .312/.418/.515 slash line, 309 home runs and 1,261 RBIs.

He now serves as Seattle’s hitting coach, a position he’s held since the 2015 season.

Mets place Yoenis Cespedes on 10-day DL

Wide receiver. This group is a far cry from the one new head coach Sean McVay got to work with in Washington. Tavon Austin isn’t a true No. 1 wideout (even though he’s being paid like one). Neither is free-agent pickup Robert Woods from Buffalo. The Rams also don’t have a first-round pick to spend on the position after trading it to Tennessee last year for the chance to select quarterback Jared Goff.

Quarterback. The 49ers face a franchise-altering decision come draft night — select a QB with the No. 2 overall pick or continue to wait in hopes of acquiring Washington’s Kirk Cousins whether via trade or free agency by the 2018 offseason. In the meantime, journeyman Brian Hoyer is set to handle the starting reigns for his seventh different NFL team.

There was a feeling Thursday night that Yoenis Cespedes may miss some time with an injury, but no one was truly positive.

Well, everyone is positive now.

This comes after the Mets lost their sixth consecutive games and 10 of their last 11. Cespedes is hitting .270 on the season but leading the team in home runs (6), walks (11) and doubles (4). He was second on the team in RBI (10) and base hits (17).

Since coming over to the Mets in a trade from the Tigers, the Cuban Cheap Barcelona Jerseys native 89 home runs and drove in 243 runs in 356 games.

Juan Lagares replaced Cespedes Thursday night, but it’s uncertain if he’ll be the first option in Cespedes’ absence.

The teams will tell you they conducted extensive probes into the various cases

Because, clearly, when a player is talented enough to be useful, such histories of violence against women are shrugged off, excused, explained away.

The teams will tell you they conducted extensive probes into the various cases, issued lie detector tests, scrutinized police reports, interviewed coaches and teammates and classmates and friends … and, of course, the players themselves.

Then they say, essentially, we trust him, we believe him, we can’t deny him a second chance, we can work with him, we can put him in a supportive environment … and, wow, he can really play.

Just as they always have with “character” concerns and “red flags” before 2014, and as they have since then.

As for Bowman, Lynch knows there’s “some question whether he’s a system fit” from outsiders. A 4-3 defense is being installed by new coordinator Robert Saleh, but Bowman has played inside linebacker in a 3-4 his entire standout seven-year NFL career in San Francisco.

Bowman also is coming off a torn Achilles tendon — his second major leg injury in a four-season span -— and turns 29 later this month. Plus, the 49ers set the stage to potentially phase-out Bowman by drafting Foster and signing ex-Oakland and Seattle starter Malcolm Smith to a five-year, $26.5 million contract Cheap Gaelic Jerseys in free agency.

According to spotrac.com, San Francisco can clear as much as $3.8 million in 2018 cap space while carrying $8.2 million in dead money by releasing or trading Bowman in the 2018 offseason.

It feels like more than a mere coincidence that both Rice and Hardy have been back in the news lately.

A player involved in an active rape investigation: first-round pick. One caught on video punching a woman and breaking bones in her face: second-round pick. One previously charged twice in incidents with his children’s mother, once for throwing her to the ground and once for biting her: fourth-round pick.

One arrested and accused of dragging his girlfriend across the floor a month before the draft: third-round pick. One charged a week before the draft with hitting a woman outside a bar, knocking her tooth out and knocking her unconscious: sixth-round pick.

Those picks, respectively, are Gareon Conley, Joe Mixon, Dede Westbrook, Jourdan Lewis and Caleb Brantley.

It feels like more than a mere coincidence that both Rice and Hardy have been back in the news lately. Rice will be part of a presentation to players and staff this season about social responsibility, according to ESPN, speaking of the repercussions on his life from hitting his then-fiancee in 2014.

Lynch, though, didn’t sound like he was in a hurry to part ways with Bowman. In fact, Lynch offered high praise for how Bowman has handled the rehabilitation process that Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China should also have him medically cleared by training camp.

“He didn’t blink when we drafted Reuben and signed Malcolm,” Lynch said. “Like every other position, we’re going to let competition bring out the best in all of them. I think that will happen with NaVorro. We all know what he’s done in this league.

Just the fact Foster and Bowman should be ready to play — period — is good news amid the gloom-and-doom scenarios as Lynch and Shanahan begin their efforts to rebuild the 49ers.

NFL division rankings: Win totals determine best, worst among AFC, NFC

Just a few years ago, the 49ers, Seahawks and Cardinals (sorry, Rams) battled at the top of the NFL’s best division. The NFC West peaked in 2013, when all three contenders reached at least 10 wins.

Now, based on Bovada.lv’s win totals for the 2017 season, the NFC West is the worst division in pro football.

SN added Bovada’s win totals (as of May 9) of all four teams in each division. The results are group totals to help us rank the league’s divisions and settle the argument before it starts: Which division is the NFL’s toughest?

The league would rather give multiple chances to an unproven or unsuccessful quarterback than a back with too much mileage … and that mileage number gets smaller every year.

And that’s why Fournette and McCaffrey, and Elliott and Bell, and all the other young backs storming the gates, only have a few years of a rosy future to which they can look forward.

They could be the catalysts for major change on the field and in the market … unless they’re not.

The Texans also need the bond Watson can immediately forge with Cheap NBA Basketball Jerseys fellow Clemson product DeAndre Hopkins. Their top wide receiver was underused and inefficient (78 catches, 954 yards, four TDs on 151 targets last season) with Osweiler and Savage after a big season in 2015. That’s unacceptable for a No. 1 with so much talent.

The Texans simply aren’t good enough around QB to dominate the South. Things are progressing in Indianapolis and Tennessee as the health of Luck and Mariota improves. The Colts and Titans have shot up offensively with better lines to match impressive arrays of skill-position players.

That’s the thing with shot attempt stats.

Pay attention to No. 3, folks, because if you don’t, you Really Cheap Jerseys might be the dude standing atop the Green Monster, arguing with your girlfriend, whom you hoped would be your fiancée, who will not be your fiancée, and who will also probably not be your girlfriend for much longer. The crowd might start to chant, “SHE SAID NO!” and then someone might take a video of you and then you might go somewhat viral.

“This is America; we’re all free to do whatever’s best for us. We’re just privileged to be in a position to be going.”

Going to the White House is an honor and a privilege, which is why fans have been critical of players who have decided to skip the opportunity. If the leader of the free world wants to make time to celebrate a team’s accomplishments, not going is often seen as a slight to the country’s highest office, not to the man who holds the job. That criticism adds more pressure on players to attend, even if they may disagree with the administration.

And yet, some players, like rookie wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, didn’t think twice about the context of the day. He was just excited to be on presidential grounds.

“Malcolm, some players chose not to be here today, citing political reasons. Did you ever consider not coming?” a reporter asked.

“I’ve never been to the White House. This is my first opportunity to have that,” Mitchell said. “So for me, personally, I wanted to visit.”

That’s the thing with shot attempt stats. They don’t predict with 100% accuracy (they never claimed to), so you can always find exceptions to the rule. But in the long run, it is always better to have the puck than not. Having the puck more usually means you will be shooting more than your opponent and that usually means you will score more than your opponent. The Red Wings built a dynasty, making the playoffs for 26 straight seasons and winning four Stanley Cups, knowing that possessing the puck is the most important thing to winning.
