    Second on team with

    It’s Super Bowl ad time again. Advertisers of all stripes are vying for the attention of the 111 million viewers expected to tune in. The goal is to be the most-talked about ad over the water cooler – or Slack chatroom – come Monday morning. From Steven Tyler de-aging for Kia to Amazon’s imagining of different voices for Alexa Jerry Hughes Jersey , here are 10 ads that are likely to be talked about. And if you’re not interested in tuning it to watch the big game on Sunday, you can stream all of these ads ahead of time. — Amazon The internet giant’s founder, Jeff Bezos, stars in this 90-second comedic ad showing different celebrities including chef Gordon Ramsay, actress Rebel Wilson, singer Cardi B and actor Anthony Hopkins subbing in for the voice of Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa. — Budweiser Anheuser-Busch dispenses with its usual Clydesdales and puppies and instead goes with a 60-second ad that depicts Kendell Beckwith Jersey , to the tune of ”Stand By Me,” the company’s program to provide water to areas in need. — Bud Light The beer brand’s recent ads have centered on a Game of Thrones-like universe that uses the meaningless-but-catchy phrase ”Dilly Dilly.” Now, in a 60-second ad running in the second quarter, the brand introduces ”Bud Knight,” a heroic character who is ambivalent about helping out in a battle. — Coca-Cola The soda maker strives to include everyone in its 60-second ad: people of different ethnicities, someone in a wheelchair and a person who uses the they/them pronoun are all shot at various locations in Mexico clutching or drinking different varieties of Coke. — Doritos & Mountain Dew The two Pepsico brands have linked spots that show a lip-sync battle between Peter Dinklage Willie Snead IV Jersey , who lip syncs a Busta Rhymes song as a representative for Doritos Blaze, and Morgan Freeman, who lip syncs a song by Missy Elliott for Mountain Dew Ice. — Febreze Procter & Gamble’s air freshener tackles toilet humor with a 30-second ad airing in the second quarter. It purports to be a documentary about Dave, whose ”bleep don’t stink.” The kicker: Since your Super Bowl party guests are a bunch of not-Daves, you might want to take other precautions against bathroom odor. — Kia The automaker has enlisted Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler (who last popped up in a Skittles Super Bowl ad two years ago) to promote its Stringer sports car. In the ad, he drives backward so fast that he gets younger thanks to computer-generated magic. In a nod to advertising tropes Patrick Mahomes II Jersey , the ad also contains a subliminal message if you watch it backward; Kia helpfully provides this version online. — Michelob Ultra The Anheuser-Busch light beer brand has 30-second ads in the second and fourth quarters starring Chris Pratt . In one he runs and does yoga while singing along to ”I Like Beer,” a remake of a country song from the 1970s. — Pepsi The soda maker calls back to its past Super Bowl advertising efforts with Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Celtics basketball player Kyrie Irving and Cindy Crawford in a 30-second ad airing right before the Justin Timberlake halftime show. — WeatherTech The maker of car floor mats shows footage of its new factory being built in a 30-second ad in the first half of the game. On-screen text reads: ”At WeatherTech, we built our new factory right here in America. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be?” It’s the fifth consecutive year WeatherTech has advertised during the Super Bowl that all of its operations are in the United States. The 49ers liked guard Joshua Garnett so much in the 2016 NFL draft that they traded up to get a second first-round pick and acquire him. They don’t like him so much anymore. Garnett was drafted by former G.M. Trent Baalke and coach Chip Kelly, and now that new G.M. John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan are running the show Davon House Jersey , Garnett is in danger of getting cut, according to the Sacramento Bee. The 24-year-old Garnett is competing with Mike Person and Jonathan Cooper for a roster spot, and he’ll have to perform well in training camp and the preseason to make the team. As a first-round draft pick, Garnett has a guaranteed contract. So the 49ers are on the hook for his salaries of salaries of $1.3 million this year and $1.7 million next year whether he’s on the team or not. But after Garnett missed the entire 2017 season with a knee injury, there’s a real chance that the 49ers will eat the costs and cut bait on a draft bust. Authentic Womens Sylvester Williams Jersey

    was a very unique situ

    During a short press conference that started after the NFL released a statement on its new national anthem policy Terrell Suggs Jersey , NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the policy was adopted after a unanimous vote by the league’s 32 teams. Not all of the teams voted, however. 49ers CEO Jed York said that he abstained from the vote because he believed it required further study that, per Steve Wyche of NFL Media, includes discussion with players. The 49ers employed Colin Kaepernick in 2016 when his decision to not stand for the anthem started us down the road to Tuesday’s vote. York also suggested that the change in policy, which calls for all on the field to “stand and show respect” will also lead to a change in procedures at the concession stands at Levi’s Stadium. “I don鈥檛 think we should be profiting if we鈥檙e going to put this type of attention and focus on the field and on the flag,” York said, via Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times. That would seem to be a reasonable approach for the teams that voted for a new policy emphasizing respect for the national anthem on Tuesday and it’s sure to be among the questions for other owners in the wake of the change. Ron Gardenhire didn’t mind getting a beer shower from his players Wednesday night. He just didn’t know why it was happening. ”They ambushed me, and they really got me,” he said after his Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 5-2. ”I wasn’t expecting it, and now I’m dripping all over the place.” While Gardenhire didn’t realize he had just won his 1,100th game as a manager, someone – he suspects bench coach Steve Liddle – tipped off James McCann. McCann rounded up his teammates and raided the cooler. ”We soaked him,” Tigers third baseman Nicholas Castellanos said. ”He didn’t know what hit him.” The milestone had a little extra meaning for Gardenhire because it came against the Twins Ronnie Stanley Jersey , the team he managed from 2002-14. ”I have this big D on my chest now, and it was the Tigers who won this one, but an awful lot of them came with the team on the other side of the diamond tonight,” he said. For most of the night, it appeared the Tigers weren’t going to get the win. Playing for the first time since Miguel Cabrera’s season-ending biceps injury, they stranded eight batters in the first seven innings and trailed 2-1. The Twins then failed to add an insurance run in the eighth, stranding Eduardo Escobar after a one-out triple, and it came back to haunt them. With one out in the bottom of the inning, John Hicks, Niko Goodrum and Grayson Greiner hit consecutive singles off Addison Reed (1-5) to tie the game. Jose Iglesias popped out, but Victor Reyes grounded an RBI single to left. ”I had everyone where I wanted them – 0-1 or 0-2 – but I wasn’t finishing the job,” Reed said. ”Jose (Berrios) threw a hell of a game, and I let him down. That’s the worst part of this.” Reyes Jalen Richard Jersey , a Rule 5 pick, started the night hitting .196 with four RBIs in 30 games. Used mainly as a pinch runner, he has only accumulated 50 plate appearances. ”We were going to be thrilled no matter who got the hit, but everyone feels great for Victor,” Hicks said. ”He’s in a really tough situation because he doesn’t get many at-bats, but he never complains and works harder than anyone. There are nights where he’s getting swings in during the game.” Leonys Martin followed with an RBI single and Reyes scored on right fielder Robbie Grossman’s throwing error to make it 5-2. ”I didn’t contribute anything and Miggy can’t help us right now, but we still won the game,” Castellanos said. ”That’s how you can tell this team is good. Every guy in this room is picking up the slack.” Joe Jimenez (3-0) got the win with a scoreless eighth. Shane Greene, Detroit’s fifth pitcher, threw a perfect ninth for his 16th save. Berrios allowed one run on seven hits and a walk in six innings. Detroit’s Matthew Boyd gave up two runs on three hits and two walks in five innings. The Twins scored twice before Detroit recorded an out in the first inning. Boyd hit Brian Dozier, Eddie Rosario doubled and Escobar hit a two-run single. The Twins, though, only got two more hits in the game. ”When it’s 2-0 that fast Evan Engram Jersey , I can’t afford to get mad at myself,” Boyd said. ”I’ve just got to get the next guy out and start posting zeroes.” Goodrum made it 2-1 with a second-inning homer off Berrios, his friend from their minor league days in the Twins system. ”It’s just part of the game,” Berrios said. ”We’re still friends, but now we’re competing. He got me that time.” Like Boyd, though, Berrios settled in to keep Detroit off the board for the rest of his outing. The Tigers had runners on second and third with one out in the third before he struck out Castellanos and Jeimer Candelario. Dozier appeared to make a spectacular play with one out in the fifth, using his glove to scoop Reyes’ drag bunt to Logan Morrison at first. The Tigers, though, challenged the call and it was overturned after a lengthy review. Martin followed with an infield single, and after Castellanos struck out, Berrios hit Candelario to load the bases. Victor Martinez fell behind 0-2 and grounded out to end the inning with the Twins still up 2-1. The Tigers missed another opportunity in the sixth. Hicks started the inning with a single and took third on Goodrum’s ground-rule double, but Berrios struck out Greiner and Iglesias before retiring Reyes. ”In a situation like that Ben Gedeon Jersey , you just hope that someone is eventually going to get the big hit,” Gardenhire said. ”It took a while, but they finally came through.” TRAINER’S ROOM Twins: OF Byron Buxton (toe) took batting practice on Wednesday, while Joe Mauer (neck and head) played for Triple-A Rochester on his rehab assignment. Tigers: With McCann still sidelined by the flu and Hicks moving to first base in the wake of Cabrera’s injury, Greiner was the starting catcher. McCann was feeling well enough to warm up pitchers between innings and could be back on Thursday. UP NEXT The teams finish their three-game series on Thursday afternoon, with Minnesota’s Lance Lynn (4-4, 5.08) facing Detroit’s Michael Fulmer (2-5, 4.40). Authentic Womens Brian Allen Jersey

    Acevedo called

    When the Alliance of American Football starts play in February Jeremy Hill Jersey , it hopes to put players on the field in front of fans who cheered for them in college. J.K. McKay, head of football operations for the AAF, told PFT that the AAF’s top priority in stocking the rosters for its teams will be to keep players who played their college football near the AAF’s eight cities close to home. “You want to keep local kids home when you can,” McKay said. “It creates fan interest. Our Birmingham team will have Alabama and Auburn, and that will draw some fan interest.” The AAF will have teams in Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, Orlando, Tempe, Salt Lake City Demetrius Harris Jersey , San Antonio and San Diego. For players who didn’t go to college near any of those cities, they’ll be allocated to AAF teams based on the last NFL roster they were on. Previous rival leagues, including the USFL and XFL, have taken a similar approach. “It just makes sense,” McKay said. “You’re bringing in guys people know. From a marketing standpoint it’s good, it allows players to stay home. Other leagues have done it and we’re absolutely committed to it and excited about it.” McKay said the AAF expects to add a lot of good players in September, picking up training camp players who didn’t make the NFL’s roster cutdown from 90 to 53. The base deal in the AAF will be a three-year, $250,000 contract. Although any player who has the opportunity to play in the NFL is going to choose that over the AAF, McKay said the league has a good idea right now for who some of its top players will be. “We have a pretty good sense now Montravius Adams Jersey ,” McKay said. “We’ve brought in some really excellent general managers who are experienced in the NFL. We can look now and put together a pretty good list of who you have right now.” AAF teams will have 75 players on training camp rosters and 50 players on regular season rosters. All eight teams will open a joint training camp at the same location in early January, then break camp and practice in their home cities before the AAF’s inaugural season opens on February 9. One thing the AAF will not do is bring in college freshmen or sophomores who are not yet eligible for the NFL draft. McKay said he doesn’t think players are ready for pro football until they’re three years out of high school. “From a health and safety standpoint, we’re concerned about the idea of having a kid come sooner than that,” McKay said. McKay said he thinks there are enough good football players not in the NFL that the AAF can put on high-quality football. “The quality of football will determine what we do,” McKay said. “When guys play I think the NFL will take notice and fans will say these guys are good.” Authorities issued a warrant Friday for the arrest of three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett, who is accused of injuring a paraplegic woman as he tried get onto the field at last year's Super Bowl to celebrate with his brother. The Harris County district attorney's office said a grand jury indicted the 32-year-old Bennett, acquired earlier this month by the Philadelphia Eagles, on a felony count of injury to the elderly. Bennett was a spectator at the game at NRG Stadium in Houston in February 2017 when he tried to get onto the field immediately afterward to see his brother, Martellus Bennett, a tight end for the Patriots at the time. Prosecutors allege he pushed through security personnel Takkarist McKinley Jersey , including a 66-year-old woman in a wheelchair who was a stadium employee and who had told him to use a different entrance to access the field. Bennett is also accused of pushing two other people, including another woman, and ignoring a request by a police officer to stop as he made his way onto the field. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said Bennett allegedly told the people he had pushed, "You all must know who I am and I can own this (expletive). I'm going down to the field, whether you like it or not." Acevedo called Bennett "morally bankrupt" for pushing the two women. Police said the disabled woman suffered a sprained shoulder when she was allegedly pushed by Bennett, hitting the back of her 800-pound, motorized wheelchair. "Mr. Bennett may think that because he's an NFL player and some time passed ... he may have thought that, number one, rules don't apply to him, number two Eric Rowe Jersey , he doesn't have to respect the dignity of a paraplegic woman who's trying to earn a living," Acevedo said at a news conference. Acevedo said a detective did not actively start working the case until September because the police department had prioritized more serious cases. The charge of injury to the elderly can be filed if a person intentionally or knowingly causes injury to a person 65 or older. It carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. County authorities say they're talking with Bennett's legal team about surrendering on the charge. The Eagles acquired Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks, where he became one of the dominant defensive linemen in the game. Bennett had 8 陆 sacks last season and has 54 in his nine-year career. Bennett has three years remaining on his contract, with a base salary of just $1.65 million in 2018. That number jumps to $6 million in 2019 and $7.5 million in 2020. "We are aware of the situation involving Michael Bennett and are in the process of gathering more information," the Eagles said. "Because this is an ongoing legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time." Bennett's agent, Doug Hendrickson, did not respond to a message seeking comment Friday.

    She has two ticke

    The Tennessee Titans seem confident that their young wide receivers will quickly make an impact this year. Injuries limited Corey Davis in his rookie year last season and Tajae Sharpe missed his second consecutive season after re-injuring his right foot . Taywan Taylor David Sharpe Jersey , the third-round pick a year ago, had his production fall off after a promising start. Rishard Matthews is the lone true veteran going into his seventh NFL season. So far, the Titans have added only a pair of veteran receivers that have a combined 59 NFL catches: Michael Campanaro and Nick Williams. "After your rookie year, you've just got to go," first-year Titans coach Mike Vrabel said. "We're counting on Corey, we're counting on Taywan, we're counting on Tajae and all of the guys." A vote of confidence or simply expectations, Davis said it doesn't matter to the receivers. "We're going to come out here, and we're going to do our job to the best of our ability Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey ," Davis said. "Rishard's a competitor, Tajae, Taywan, we're all going to come out here and compete day in and day out." Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk fired coach Mike Mularkey despite the franchise winning its first playoff game in 14 years. Tennessee replaced him with Vrabel , who hired Matt LaFleur from the Los Angeles Rams as his offensive coordinator. The primary reason for the moves were to get more out of quarterback Marcus Mariota and the Titans' offense, which ranked 23rd in the NFL averaging only 224.4 yards passing per game. Eric Decker, who led the receivers with 54 catches last season, wasn't brought back. Of the returnees, Matthews has been the team's top receiver since signing as a free agent in 2016. Sharpe has the most production of the other receivers after starting 10 of 16 games as a rookie with 41 catches for 522 yards. "We're all starting with clean slates Brent Urban Jersey ," Sharpe said. "The new coaching staff, they weren't with us last year, so we all just have to prove ourselves. We just want to come back out here and compete and get one percent better every day and just keep working." The Titans' biggest hope for offensive improvement rests on Davis developing into the No. 1 receiver he was drafted to be. The 6-foot-3, 209-pound Davis struggled with injuries as a rookie with offseason ankle surgery limiting him until the final week of the team's offseason program, then he hurt a hamstring a week into training camp. That sidelined him for five games , and Davis finished with 34 catches for 375 yards starting nine of 11 games. He showed flashes of potential but didn't catch his first touchdown pass until the postseason. That was a one-handed grab for his first TD in the Titans' divisional loss at New England, and he added his second in the fourth quarter of the rout. "It's a lot of injuries, up and down, but this year's going to be different Colton Schmidt Jersey ," Davis said. "Just got to stay healthy and go out and ball." Fully healthy, Davis, Matthews, Sharpe and Taylor spent time working out with Mariota in March. Even while learning a new offense, Davis said he believes he's ready to take advantage of a full offseason and be Tennessee's No. 1 receiver. The game has slowed down for Davis, and now he's busy building his timing with the quarterback he calls Ocho. Mariota said the second year for any player in the NFL is almost like a sigh of relief. "You understand the situation, you understand what's expected of you," Mariota said. "Everything's not brand new, so I mean I can't speak for him. But I think as you get older and as you continue to build up your years Patrick Mahomes II Jersey , the surroundings, the organization, everything just feels a little more comfortable." The Philadelphia Eagles have surprised a fan who woke up groggy from recent dental surgery asking, ”Did I miss the Super Bowl?!?” She has two tickets for the big game in Minneapolis. Haley Parks’ father tells NJ.com the team reached out on social media Friday, offering his daughter the tickets. She says she’s ”freaking out” over the news. Meanwhile, her parents are trying to find flights to Minneapolis. Her father posted a video on Facebook this week showing the 21-year-old Rutgers student coming out of anesthesia after having her wisdom teeth removed. She babbled about the Eagles through a mouth of cotton packing. The video had been viewed more than a million times. The Eagles face the New England Patriots on Sunday. — Information from: NJ.com, Grayson Allen Jersey

Did 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan name his son after Lil’ Wayne? Can the Seahawks get any cap relief if S Kam Chancellor does not play? Raised in upstate New York, Chad Brown didn't root for the Bills, the Giants or the Jets when it came to football. The 39-year-old from Mechanicville was a San Francisco 49ers fan. It was simple. He liked future Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, although football didn't turn out to be Brown's sport. Brown has become one of thoroughbred racing's top trainers, and his favorite football team now is the New England Patriots. It has nothing to do with Tom Brady. It's all about Gronkowski, both of them. He likes tight end Rob and the 3-year-old colt named after him who will be a fan favorite Saturday in the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes. Whether Gronkowski can challenge Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Justify and prevent him from becoming the sport's 13th Triple Crown winner remains to be seen. The name of the horse adds interest to the final jewel of the Triple Crown Tedric Thompson Jersey , of course. "It works for him," Brown said of the name. "He is going to pick up a few extra fans and that feels good. I am happy people are rooting for him because of his name." The Kentucky-bred colt has never raced in North America. He has had six starts in England, winning four races and finishing second once. An illness forced him to skip the Kentucky Derby. Phoenix Thoroughbred Limited, the owners of Gronkowski, decided after the Derby to move the colt out of the barn of Jeremy Noseda in mid-May. Brown has spent the last three-plus weeks getting the colt ready to run again. While Gronkowski arrived in good condition and has trained extremely well, Brown would have preferred a little more training time. "If the horse has enough foundation behind him, he is the kind of a horse that can run a mile and a half on the dirt," Brown said Thursday after Gronkowski galloped. "Is he ready for Saturday? We'll see." Brown said the owners of Gronkowski gave him the option of skipping the Belmont if he felt the colt was not ready. He elected to run. Brown has an idea what will happen in the race. Gronkowski will run a little behind the leaders and grind out the first 1录 miles. It's the last quarter that's a concern for a colt that has never run longer than a mile in a race. "This was a very unique situation Jack Tatum Jersey ," Brown said. "This was a horse that was on the Derby trail and then off, and now here on short notice. It really takes a special horse to be able to catch up to speed and be able to run in a race like Saturday. Based on what I have seen so far, I do feel like he is up to it." Rob Gronkowski, who is a part owner of the colt, is expected to attend. He's also excited. "It's pretty wild," Gronkowski said Tuesday after a Patriots practice. "I heard about the horse like a year ago and I saw it, and I was like 'that's cool,' you know? Then all of a sudden it's like the horse is in the Kentucky Derby a year later. So it's pretty wild. It's a pretty cool scenario. Pretty cool situation. It just shows Jalen Richard Jersey , name the horse my name and it's going to make it, baby." Besides Gronkowski the horse, Brown also had another runner in his barn partially owned by three former or current Patriots. He has gotten the chance to sit down with Patriots coach Bill Belichick to discuss how their jobs are similar and how they manage elite athletes and people on their staffs. "I have asked him for advice, particularly on leadership, winning, and how to get the most out of people," said Brown, who has 165 employees and 230 horses in his barn. "I find him to be and (have) great admiration for him now that I have had a couple of chances to really sit down with coach and pick his brain. I find him to be really brilliant Dorian O'Daniel Jersey , a deep thinker and very reserved and calculated about what he says or does. He has enormous experience how to get the most out of people." For Brown, this is a week in which he will discover just how much he got out of Gronkowski. At worst, it will be a learning experience. At best, Gronk scores big and upsets Justify's Triple Crown hopes. Womens Mason Cole Jersey

    The Cowboys took

    New Cowboys receivers coach Sanjay Lal closely studied Dez Bryant‘s route running on film from 2017 before the team made a decision on the receiver’s future. He saw the same thing Cowboys scouting chief Will McClay did — inconsistency. “I still saw he’s physical and violent at the route top John Randle Jersey ,” Lal said, via Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News. “He’s still one of the best slant runners in the league. “Without getting into specifics, I just saw more inconsistencies in his game [than in previous years].” Lal declined to expound on the inconsistencies he saw. It echoed what McClay said after the draft in a radio interview, pointing out Bryant’s inability “to win one-on-one, to win downfield” as well as the receiver’s “inconsistency.” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who remains close with Bryant Laquon Treadwell Jersey , disagreed earlier this week, saying Bryant still can make a “significant contribution” to a team. Lal also provided a complimentary assessment of Bryant’s game overall. “I would always pull Dez Bryant cut-ups, ‘Here’s how you go play violently for a ball; here’s how you turn on a back-shoulder fade,'” Lal said. “I have a whole slant cut-up of Dez Bryant, so I’ve been a great admirer of how he plays the game. I still think he has that.” Bryant remains without a job after the Cowboys released him a month ago. The Cowboys saw tight ends Jason Witten and James Hanna retire this offseason. It leaves a hole at the position even with their selection of Dalton Schultz in the fourth round. Rico Gathers, who did not play a regular-season game in his first two seasons Donovan Smith Jersey , acknowledges the opportunity. He spent his rookie season on the practice squad after playing college basketball, and a concussion kept Gathers on injured reserve last season. “The biggest thing for me this year is just making it to the regular season,” Gathers said. “I have to make sure I’m healthy and make sure I’m able to be on somebody’s 53-man roster.” The Cowboys took a flyer on Gathers in 2016, using a sixth-round pick on him. He showed signs of development during the 2017 preseason by catching seven passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns in the first two preseason games. But Gathers took a helmet-to-helmet hit from defensive back Kavon Frazier during an August 15 practice, and the concussion ended Gathers’ season before it began. He was cleared from concussion protocol before Week 7, but the Cowboys elected not to use one of their short-term injured reserve designations on Gathers. “They finally gave me the clear to start back working out normal and going back into the meetings and stuff Casey Hayward Jersey ,” Gathers said. “For the most part, I was excited after getting cleared, but the people above had bigger expectations for me rather than me coming in and practicing and getting back on the field. “Really they didn’t tell me anything. But I could just tell by the drift of the season and the drift of the coaching staff that I probably wasn’t going to play last year anyway. I just look forward to getting back on the field this year.” Gathers is confident he could have helped last season. He’s more confident he will help this season with Witten and Hanna gone. He is competing with Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin, Schultz and undrafted rookie David Wells likely for three roster spots. Gathers has worked hard on his blocking, seeking to become an all-around tight end. “It was agonizing [not playing last season] Shaquill Griffin Jersey , because I felt like I had finally got into a rhythm of what I wanted to do, and I think they saw that,” Gathers said. “It was tough to deal with, especially because in some of the games I felt like we needed a scoring punch and I felt like that was what I brought to the table. But playing for the Cowboys is bigger than being able to score touchdowns. You have to block and everything else.” Le'Veon Bell Jersey

    Second on team with

    Browns defensive end Myles Garrett still is hunting Ben Roethlisberger Ryan Smith Jersey , whom he didn’t face his rookie season after saying he couldn’t wait to meet the Steelers quarterback and “chop him down.” Garrett is trolling Roethlisberger again in a hilarious video produced by the Browns. The video, which was posted on social media Thursday by the team, has nearly a million views on Twitter. Garrett, Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry, Duke Johnson, Christian Kirksey and six other players make cameos in a parody of the intro to the classic NBC sitcom The Office. Garrett, dressed as the Dwight Schrute character from the show, shreds a picture of Roethlisberger in the minute-long video. Shortly after the Browns selected Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick in 2017, he began talking tough about wanting to sack Roethlisberger. The quarterback played along last offseason, but the two have yet to meet on the field. Garrett missed the first four games last season with a high ankle sprain, which included the season opener against the Steelers, and Roethlisberger sat out the regular-season finale as a precaution for the playoffs. The teams open the regular season September 9 at FirstEnergy Stadium. 鈥淥h, thank God,鈥?Garrett said in May during the team鈥檚 golf outing, via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

    Jones said

    Saints punter Thomas Morstead figured he had a good command of his value after nine NFL seasons Daniel Kilgore Jersey , and he had no interest in playing or living anywhere but New Orleans. Morstead said Friday that he has signed a new five-year, $20 million contract with the Saints. He told The Associated Press that his new contract begins in the current league year, replacing the final year of his previous contract that was due to expire after next season. The deal guarantees $9 million over the first two seasons and includes the possibility for additional bonuses, Morstead said. The 32-year-old Morstead served as his own agent on what is his third NFL contract since being drafted in 2009 and helping New Orleans capture its only Super Bowl championship as a rookie. The Saints ”approached me about doing (a new contract) and we love living in New Orleans,” said Morstead, who is raising a family in the city. ”They extended me early after my third year and they extended me again after my ninth. And I didn’t have any feeling in my body that the grass is greener elsewhere. We love New Orleans. We love our neighbors. I love playing for (Saints coach) Sean (Payton). There’s a tremendous amount of stability and we were thrilled at the chance to stick around.” Morstead has averaged 47 yards per punt during his career. That ranks third all-time in the NFL, less than a yard behind the averages of the two players ahead of him, Shane Lechler and Johnny Hekker. Last season, Patriots coach Bill Belichick raved about Morstead before facing the Saints in Week 2, saying the only way to prepare for the Saints punter is to ”take the JUGS machine, crank it up on high and shoot the ball about 65 to 70 yards downfield, a yard from the sideline like he does most of the time. … There are not many guys who can punt the ball like him.” Morstead said he made the goal of striving for elite consistency ever since retired quarterback Peyton Manning spoke to the Saints during training camp and urged players to think about how they want to be remembered. ”I started kind of outlining qualitative goals about what people would say about me,” Morstead said. ”There’s a lot of value in having a specialist that there’s not a lot of ups and downs with.” ”It’s not just about hitting bombs Pierre Garcon Jersey , hitting high punts,” Morstead added. ”It’s good distance with good hang time in a corner that pins guy with quick get-off. I’m really proud of the standards that we’ve set.” Morstead also has enjoyed a surge in popularity in Minnesota – if not nationally – since he volunteered to return to the field from the locker room, despite having injured his ribs, so Minnesota could formally complete its dramatic, last-second playoff victory over the Saints by running a required point-after attempt. Morstead was the first Saints player out of the locker room. The Vikings took a knee, not needing to score on the play. Afterward, Morstead noticed a surge of donations from Minnesota to his What You Give Will Grow foundation, which benefits children undergoing hospital treatment for serious illnesses. Morstead returned to Minneapolis during the Super Bowl to present a check for a little more than $221,000 to Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. He also donated $120,000 to similar efforts in Louisiana. Morstead’s deal is one of a handful of moves by New Orleans since the beginning of free agency on Wednesday. Those include the signings of cornerback Patrick Robinson to what his agent, Ron Butler, said was a four-year, $20 million deal; linebacker Demario Davis to a reported three-year Logan Thomas Jersey , $24 million contract; and defensive end Alex Okafor to a two-year extension for a reported $10 million. The Saints have also added veteran quarterback Tom Savage as a potential backup to Drew Brees, who signed a two-year, $50 million extension the day before free agency started. — Julio Jones insists his status for training camp was never in doubt. Jones, the five-time Pro Bowl receiver, was back for the start of Falcons training camp Friday after missing a mandatory minicamp in June while asking that his contract be reworked. Jones dismissed reports he wouldn’t report without a new deal as ”he said, she said” speculation. ”We knew all along we were going to get it handled,” he said. For coach Dan Quinn, the most important fact was seeing No. 11 catching passes from Matt Ryan. ”It was awesome to have him back,” said Quinn, adding Jones’ routes were ”really sharp and clean.” Jones drew cheers from fans when he caught a pass on the sideline in front of cornerback Desmond Trufant late in the practice. General manager Thomas Dimitroff said Thursday the team made an ”adjustment” to Jones’ five-year, $71.5 million contract. Jones is entering the third year of the deal. Dimitroff said the tweak to Jones’ deal wouldn’t affect the team’s hopes to negotiate contract extensions for left tackle Jake Matthews, defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, and safety Ricardo Allen. On Friday Ryan Schraeder Jersey , the team agreed to a five-year, $75 million extension for Matthews. The biggest new deal of all came earlier in the offseason – a five-year, $150 million extension for Ryan, the most lucrative contract in NFL history. Ryan’s contract, and the team’s talks with Matthews, Jarrett and Allen, were among the reasons Dimitroff said the Falcons couldn’t renegotiate Jones’ contract until after the season. Jones confirmed he told Quinn this month he would report to training camp. Falcons owner Arthur Blank said at the NFL owners meeting in May he expected Jones to play his entire career with Atlanta. ”Our relationship has always been excellent so I had the confident in Thomas and the confidence in J.J. being a great Falcon for us not only on the field but off the field and a leader in the locker room,” Blank said Friday. Jones said he and Blank ”reiterated what he had told us – that I’m going to be a Falcon forever.” Asked if it was difficult to be away from the team for the mandatory minicamp and other offseason work, Jones said he told Quinn ”It was just me getting healthy as far as some stuff with me, getting back right and feeling 100 percent.” A healthy Jones is especially important to the Falcons’ hopes of returning to their offensive form of their 2016 Super Bowl season, when they led the league in scoring. One year ago, Jones was recovering from minor offseason surgery on his left foot and was limited in the first training camp with offensive coordinator Steve Sarkasian. Jones didn’t miss a game last season despite having two ankle injuries – plus back, ribs Justin Vogel Jersey , thumb and knee injuries. Jones, who also participated in an informal passing camp led by Ryan in California this month, has no injury concerns. ”For me and for the team it’s better than I’m healthy and can do everything,” he said. Quinn said wide receiver Russell Gage used advice from Jones to fine-tune a route at the California camp. ”Those were the things that don’t show up on the stat sheet that often speak to who he is as a teammate,” said Quinn of Jones. It’s not unusual for Jones to be included on Atlanta’s game-week injury reports, but he has missed only three games the last four seasons. He has broken his right foot twice, at the NFL combine in 2011 and in 2013 when he missed 11 games. Jones has remained one of the NFL’s most productive receivers. He had 88 catches for 1,444 yards and three touchdowns in 2017. Jones and Marvin Harrison are the only players in NFL history to have at least 80 catches for at least 1,400 yards in four straight seasons — Womens Tyquan Lewis Jersey

    They still have

    The NFL is standing by its controversial new helmet rule. In a statement released this afternoon Dion Dawkins Jersey , NFL Executive V.P. of Football Operations Troy Vincent said that while the league’s competition committee listened to feedback from players, coaches and officials, there will be no changes. “The committee resolved that there will be no changes to the rule as approved by clubs this spring, which includes no additional use of instant replay Willie Brown Jersey ,” Vincent said. “The committee also determined that inadvertent or incidental contact with the helmet and/or facemask is not a foul.” But that last part of the statement points to a reason this rule may be officiated inconsistently: Two different officials could look at the same play and come to different conclusions about what constitutes “inadvertent or incidental contact.” The league is in for a rough time if officials aren’t all on the same page about that. The regular season starts two weeks from tomorrow, and there are still more questions than answers about the new rule. But one question has been definitively answered: The rule is here to stay. Apparently all those issues at the Nashville airport have been cleared up, so the Titans could sign another safety who isn’t Eric Reid. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Titans are signing veteran safety Steven Terrell. The former Chiefs and Seahawks safety worked out for them recently Tre Madden Jersey , so they decided to bring them in. The Chiefs had a cattle call for safeties last week after losing starter Jonathan Cyprien to a torn ACL. They signed Kenny Vaccaro out of that mix, and put him right into the starting lineup. They were reportedly interested in bringing Reid in to be a part of it, but somehow or another, “multiple flight cancellations” led to him never making it there. Reid has been out of work all offseason despite playing well (and occasionally out of position) for the 49ers last year. He visited with the Bengals Blake Martinez Jersey , but when questions came up about his protests during the national anthem (not of the national anthem, for those who are still confused), the Bengals moved on without him.

    The Arizona Cardinals

    Authorities say former Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers player Aldon Smith is back in a California jail after violating a condition of his bail. Online records show the 28-year-old Smith is being held Sunday in San Francisco County Jail on $500 Jim Plunkett Jersey ,000 bond. A message seeking comment from his attorney, Joshua Bentley, was not immediately returned. Sheriff's spokeswoman Nancy Crowley tells the San Francisco Chronicle that Smith was booked Friday for violating a condition of his electronic monitoring while on bail. Last month Smith pleaded not guilty to domestic violence and other charges. A judge issued a protective order prohibiting him from contacting the victim. He later surrendered to police on charges he violated the restraining order. The Raiders released the linebacker after his arrest on the domestic violence charges. The Arizona Cardinals have announced that they will be making an announcement tomorrow. Via Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic David Amerson Jersey , the Cardinals will hold a “major” press conference on Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. local time. The obvious speculation is that the Cardinals will be unveiling a new contract with running back David Johnson. If that’s the case, no one has leaked anything to anyone who spends their time trying to find things out in the minutes and hours before those things are officially disclosed to the world. Johnson is entering the final year of his rookie contract. His 2017 season ended up being lost, thanks to a wrist injury suffered in Week One against the Lions. The former third-round pick didn’t hold out in an effort to get a new deal Josh Hill Jersey , and recent reports suggested that a new contract before the start of the regular season is unlikely. Maybe with the money dished out in recent days to the likes of Odell Beckham, Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Donald Cameron Jordan Jersey , and Khalil Mack, Johnson’s demands suddenly didn’t seem so unreasonable to the Cardinals.

    With Christopher Gibson

    The NFL acted quickly this morning to quell any complaints about the Steelers using a deflated football in their preseason game last night. And it wasn’t the first time. During the 2016 season Jaleel Johnson Jersey , the Giants complained that they tested two Steelers footballs after turnovers, and found that both of them were inflated below the league minimum level. But the NFL quickly released a statement saying there was no issue. This morning, the NFL did it again, quickly releasing a statement saying that a football used by the Steelers last night came defective from the manufacturer, Wilson, rather than being tampered with by the Steelers. Of course, Patriots fans will be left asking why the NFL is so quick to move on when there’s a suggestion that the Steelers may have been tampering with footballs. When the Patriots were accused, the NFL spent a fortune on a months-long investigation that resulted in Tom Brady getting suspended and the Patriots getting stripped of two draft picks. The NFL is unlikely to have an answer to that question that will satisfy the folks in New England. But the league clearly wants this story to go away swiftly. Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters were laughing and joking like old friends shortly after the start of their first day together at the Los Angeles Rams' training complex. The Rams' opponents might not have that much fun this fall when they face two of the NFL's best pass defenders in the same secondary. The defending NFC West champions kicked off their offseason by acquiring bookend elite cornerbacks in two trades that were formally announced Wednesday. Talib and Peters say they're thrilled to play under coordinator Wade Phillips on a defense undergoing an intriguing overhaul. "These guys are special players," head coach Sean McVay said. "They bring a great passion for the game. You can see these are both cerebral players Dont'a Hightower Jersey , and then they have the physical talents to match up. Guys that love football, these are the types of guys we love to be around." Rams general manager Les Snead has created a seemingly stellar secondary after entering the season with the uncertainty of top cornerback Trumaine Johnson, slot cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman and starting safety Lamarcus Joyner all heading for free agency. They lost Johnson to a lavish deal from the New York Jets, but the Rams re-signed Robey-Coleman, franchised Joyner and swung trades for two cornerbacks with seven combined Pro Bowl selections to play alongside Joyner and safety John Johnson III in a potent starting lineup. Los Angeles even added talented veteran cornerback Sam Shields, who missed last season due to concussions, as a probable backup alongside 2017 starting cornerback Kayvon Webster, who has a long road back from a heel injury. Peters has known for nearly three weeks that he was headed out of Kansas City, where he spent his first three NFL seasons. When he heard last week that Talib would join him with the up-and-coming Rams Mark Clayton Jersey , the Oakland native was thrilled. "Oh, let's do it," Peters said. "For me, I get to have another All-Pro corner on the other side, so now you don't know where you're going to go. And then when you've got a safety like Joyner and then you're adding Sam Shields and you keep Robey? Come on now. It's just going to be fun. You've got to find a way. Pick your poison." Talib and Peters both paid attention last season when McVay and Phillips led this long-struggling franchise to its first winning season since 2003 and its first playoff appearance since 2004. After winning the Super Bowl two seasons ago under Phillips' direction in Denver, Talib was eager to be a part of another potential powerhouse. "I saw a bunch of guys having fun," Talib said of watching the Rams last season. "They were playing for somebody who they believed in. You watch half the teams in the league, they just go through the motions and kind of collect a check, but there's another half of those teams Ryan Smith Jersey , and playoff teams, they've got a coach who they respect, and whatever he's preaching, he's got guys believing that they can really go do it." Peters and Talib are two world-class talents with just enough apparent questions surrounding them to make them available to the Rams. Peters, who was dismissed from his college team at Washington, argued with an assistant coach late last season with the Chiefs, leading to a one-game suspension. McVay and Snead are confident Peters' competitiveness is the only reason for the trouble, and he intends to direct that energy toward the Rams' goals. "When we look back into the game, passionate players have always been the ones that got the bad rep of not being a team player and being selfish Dan Feeney Jersey ," Peters said. "That's not the case for me. My ultimate goal is to be a winner. I was born a champion." Talib has been in scrapes with the law, his employers and opponents during his 10 professional seasons. His rivalry with receiver Michael Crabtree has attracted the most attention, but teammates also praise his loyalty and competitiveness. McVay, who is 20 days older than the 32-year-old Talib, expects the veteran to be an immediate team leader. The additions came at a cost to the Rams, who had to trade defensive captain Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants to make room for Talib. "It's rare to be able to acquire two players of this caliber," McVay said. "So when the opportunity does present itself, you want to be ready." Authentic Womens Ed Dickson Jersey
