Larry Bird calling it quits as president of Pacers, report says

Larry Bird is stepping down from his role as the Indiana Pacers’ president of basketball operations, The Vertical reports.

Kevin Pritchard, currently the team’s GM and executive vice president of basketball operations, is expected to take over duties previously held by Bird.

While Bird is expected to continue working with the Pacers as a consultant, other NBA franchises may come knocking on his door. Per The Vertical, the search firm helping the Magic fill their top basketball executive role is making inquiries into Bird’s availability. While Cavaliers GM David Griffin remains the Magic’s first choice, Orlando has yet to ask Cleveland to interview him since the Cavs are still in the playoffs. Orlando fired GM Rob Hennigan earlier this month.

Chyna Thomas was killed in a one-car crash near Tacoma on April 15. Her older brother previously flew cross-country after Game 2 to spend two days with his family, and the Celtics have told him repeatedly to take as much time as he needs at home.

But Thomas feels he has a responsibility to his team, as well, so he’ll continue doing everything he can to be present on both fronts.

The support has been amazing, Thomas’ friend Alonzo Weatherby Cheap Dolphins Jerseys told the Globe. It’s meant the world for Brad (Stevens) to tell Isaiah he has as much time as he wants. Basically, don’t come back until you’re ready to. This is family before anything, and that means the world.

Despite the personal turmoil, Thomas is averaging 25.2 points, 5.6 Cheap Dream Team Jerseys assists and 4.2 rebounds through the first five games of the series.

Those two interceptions came against the Seahawks and Ravens.

The Steelers sacked Brady twice in the AFC championship game, but Pittsburgh’s pass rush was inconsistent. On a 10-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman in the third quarter of New England’s 36-17 victory, Brady had plenty of time to scan the field.

Patriots linemen Shaq Mason, Nate Solder and Joe Thuney did a great job up front and center David Andrews provided help to knock Steelers linebacker James Harrison away from Brady.

Brady was sacked just 15 times in 12 regular-season games while throwing for 28 touchdowns and two interceptions to set an NFL record for touchdown-to-interception ratio.

Those two interceptions came against the Seahawks and Ravens.

“I just want to make sure that I go to this free agency with an open mind knowing that I definitely want to go back to New England,” Blount told NFL Network Monday. “I love it there. I love the culture. I love the players. I’ve become close with a lot of the guys. Obviously you know how my running back group is. We’ll cross that bridge whenever we cross it. On that point, I feel great.

“I’m in amazing shape. I feel like I could play 100 more years if I have to.”

Blount is coming off the best season of his seven-year career, rushing Basketball Cheap Jerseys for 1,161 yards and an NFL-best 18 touchdowns. His only other 1,000-yard season came in 2010, when Tampa Bay Lightning Cheap Jerseys he ran for 1,007 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie for the Buccaneers.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

Eagles make smart 1st-round pick with pass-rushing machine Derek Barnett

One of the best ways to dial up a massive contract in the NFL is to build a reputation for harassing quarterbacks. After selecting Tennessee pass rusher Derek Barnett with the No. 14 pick of the NFL draft, the Eagles are hoping the former Volunteer can provide big-money production at a fraction of the cost.

Barnett terrorized the SEC in his three seasons in the conference, racking up 52 tackles for loss, one off Leonard Little’s school mark, and 33 sacks, eclipsing the great Reggie White’s Volunteer record by one. His combination of speed and power along the edge made him the bane of every offensive tackle he matched up against.

His ability to shed blocks and collapse pockets won’t just boost his own numbers — it also creates easy TFLs for his teammates. Even without Barnett’s team-high 19, Tennessee still racked up 81 tackles for loss in 2016.

Dobbs said he loves his major, but he also loves football. He’s been playing the game since he was five and can’t imagine not playing it. After Dobbs graduates in May, he’ll be an actual rocket scientist. But when his football career ends, he plans on using his degree to build and design airplanes.

“Growing up, I was always fascinated with aviation, and I always succeeded in math and sciences, so aerospace engineering was right up my alley.”

In fact, over the past two offseasons, the 22-year-old completed two internships with Pratt & Whitney, a leading aerospace manufacturer.

“When I step on the field, put on my helmet, strap on my shoulder pads, each and every time I walk on the field, I understand the risks that come with playing football,” Dobbs said.

The young signal caller has all the tools to be a great Cheap Jerseys With Free Shipping quarterback in Cheap Jerseys Sunglasses the NFL. Indeed, it’s going to be hard for opposing defenses to outsmart and catch him.

Mike Williams overcame a broken freakin’ neck to become a Charger

In Mike Williams’ final game as a college athlete, he torched an Alabama defense loaded with top-tier talent for 94 receiving yards and a touchdown while leading his team to its first national Really Cheap Jerseys title in 35 years. Now, the Los Angeles Chargers are hoping he can bring that magic with him to the NFL.

Los Angeles selected the Clemson wideout with the No. 7 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. After a storied junior season and a pair of huge performances in the College Football Playoff, expectations are sky high. For Williams, getting this far is a testament to his resilience.

But we’re still waiting on the brand synergy opportunity that is Charlton combined with Taco Bell, where he says he still eats, enjoying the Gordita Crunch.

Hopefully, after he walks across the stage in Philadelphia, our dreams will come true and Charlton will get a personally branded taco at the popular chain.

Maye is solid in coverage, playing centerfield as a help defender through NFL Jerseys Cheap most of his time with the Gators. He reacts well to passes in front of him, accelerating downhill to make big plays. He can add value in both zone and man coverage and has a solid track record of achievement against some of the FBS’s best teams.

He’s also not a character risk like some of the other defensive backs in the 2017 draft. Maye stayed out of trouble during his Florida career and skipped this year’s draft ceremony in order to attend his graduation in Gainesville.

Yes, that includes a bunch of dudes whose names youve probably never heard.

When it came to Garrett and Barnett, Robinson didn’t always look pretty doing it, but most of the time, he got the job done. And that is impressive when you consider how different Garrett and Barnett are as pass rushers. Robinson was consistently able to handle Garrett’s power rushes as well as Barnett’s speed rushes.

That ain’t easy. Bowser’s senior season only consisted of eight starts in as many games thanks to a fight with a teammate that left the linebacker with a broken orbital bone. Despite missing a month of action, he still amassed 12 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks and claimed second-team all-conference honors — all building off his 2015 season in which he started every game and made 50 total tackles (6.5 for loss) and 5.5 sacks.

The multisport athlete has had success both as an edge rusher and outside linebacker. A move to the middle isn’t likely, but his contribution to stopping the run game should be felt almost immediately. Bowser was largely overlooked heading into the combine before putting up head-turning numbers for a guy who is 6’3, 247 pounds.

Hell, I didn’t see any other left tackle handle either guy the way Robinson did both. And there isn’t a thing that I want my left tackle to be able to do that I didn’t Cheap Baseball Jerseys China see Robinson do on a high level. He can drive people off the ball, he’s good blocking people out in space, he makes pass blocking look way too easy, and he plays with a little edge to him. Booing commissioners is kinda what we do as sports fans in America.

Hockey fans let Gary Bettman absolutely get it every year at the NHL draft.

Even Adam Silver, who is essentially the “cool commissioner” in Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys American sports, gets some boos. He used to do the second round of the draft before he got the big job, and they were booing him then, too.
