ESPN announced Thursday that Herbstreit will be part of the opening-night coverage of the first round in prime time on April 26 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Herbstreit will be joined by host Trey Wingo, draft analyst Mel Kiper and NFL analyst Louis Riddick.

The second and third rounds will be held April 27, and rounds 4-7 are April 28.

Herbstreit is the lead analyst for ESPN’s Saturday Night College Football and College GameDay.

Gruden left his job as an analyst on ESPN’s Monday Night Football in January to return as head coach of the Oakland Raiders. Gruden joined ESPN in 2009 and has been part of draft coverage since 2010.

It’s been really fun over the last few years and has helped us become familiar with rookies like Kristaps Porzingis, Jamal Murray, and even Joel Embiid from the bench in recent years. But have you ever wondered why that’s the case?

Authentic Youth Bruce Boudreau Jersey The league hasn’t always showcased the game in a World vs. USA format. It’s gone through many evolutions over the last few years to get to its current form.

I told him I’ll wear it with pride each and every day.

One Philadelphia fan left Minnesota with a priceless souvenir.

An Eagles fan has gone viral after being spotted Monday at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport with a purple plastic seat from U.S. Bank Stadium following Super Bowl 52.

According to the Star Tribune, the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority security team is investigating the theft after the fan was caught on video with the seat partly concealed under his coat. He was later photographed with the seat strapped to his carry-on suitcase before boarding a plane bound for Charlotte, N.C.

“It was definitely a valuable experience to go back and watch Nick and what clicked with him and what made him successful a couple years ago,” Pederson said. “Change is good, we didn’t tweak a lot of the offense, but we wanted to make sure we had plays and concepts with the game plan so he was comfortable in executing.

“It was just a matter of him spending time with the guys. It was going to take repetition in practice. We knew in the building we would be OK with him. He just needed time.”

When Eagles players spoke about Foles’ performance in the playoffs all the way through Super Bowl 52, there was little talk of Wentz. Teammates are funny when it comes to rallying around quarterbacks — they tend to gravitate to the guy who’s leading and getting the job done in the moment.

To understand the two Bills, you have to go back to where it began for both: the swamps of New Jersey. That’s what ESPN Films and Rodgers smartly did by taping the interview inside the Giants locker room at MetLife Stadium. It took Rodgers three years to get the two legends together in one place. The only time the stone-faced Belichick chokes up is when he muses about his early days with the Giants, riding the stationary bike on Saturday mornings and breaking down game film.

Then coaching at Army, Parcells first met a teenage Belichick through his father, Steve, a longtime coach and scout for Navy. We learn how Parcells recruited a green Belichick and quickly made the bright young assistant his “go-to” guy. But the youthful special teams coach — called “Doom” for his surly demeanor — was “disregarded” by players because he didn’t look like an athlete. Eventually, though, Belichick earns the begrudging respect of one of the greatest to ever play the game: Lawrence Taylor.

“I cannot remember a game where we weren’t mentally prepared,” L.T. recalls. “He did prove to me that he knew what he was doing to the point where I became a Bill Belichick fan.”nike-youth-cardinals-013

Trump tells fans to boycott NFL games, says attendance down

President Trump continued his beef early Sunday with NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, suggesting fans boycott the games to bring an end to the protests and said Jonas Valanciunas Youth jersey the League should back U.S. by firing the athletes.

If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! , he wrote on Twitter.

That led to a flurry of NBA players to defend Curry and take a shot at Trump, including Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James, who called Trump U bum.

Jerry’s message to Roger was ‘I run this league. You better get with it,’ a senior league executive told ESPN. This is about power and control, not the contract. That’s all white noise.

Goodell still has his owner support, led by the Falcons’ Arthur Blank, who heads the compensation committee, and an extension that will take him through the 2021 collective bargaining talks seems inevitable.

This is not how we do things in the NFL, Blank recently told Jones as tensions worsened and leaked out through the media.

The leaks haven’t stopped and the drama appears to have only just begun.

That Pace would win a power struggle with Fox is no surprise at all; it was sort of obvious that would happen when he didn’t bother telling Fox he was drafting Trubisky. The important thing is that the Bears, as CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported, are willing to go all in on developing Trubisky. Acquiring some weapons will be critical, but the biggest thing that needs to happen is finding the right coach.

Elite Womens Kyle Murphy Jersey Four days before they would host the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game, in the early stages of a pivotal padded practice, the Eagles’ demeanor appeared pretty far from super.

If Pederson’s hair-raising rant proved to be a tone-setter, as many of his players would later suggest, perhaps he should consider summoning a sequel sometime in the next two weeks. For if the Eagles can replicate the focus, intensity and precision they displayed against the Vikings come Super Bowl LII — when Philly takes on the defending champion New England Patriots on Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, of all places — the familiar sight of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady once again hoisting the Lombardi Trophy might not be a fait accompli.

NFL issues making it hard for owner to sell Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans have been trying to sell a minority stake in the 57-year-old team for six months 锟斤拷 and the process is not going well, three sources close to the situation told The Post.
Men's Elite Ricky Wagner Black Jersey: Rush Vapor Untouchable #71 NFL Detroit Lions Nike
There are no buyers, one person close to the situation said.

Some close to the Titans’ sale process said it is possible, for the first time in recent memory, that an NFL team will sell for less than its generally accepted value.

To be sure, there are some complexities in the sales process 锟斤拷 outside of the NFL’s pressing issues 锟斤拷 that are making it a difficult auction.

For starters, Smith’s Titans stake is contained inside KSA Industries, which includes oil and energy businesses, a huge ranch, and five or six auto dealerships, sources said. A buyer would therefore have to be willing to take on a larger investment.

Also, Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk has no intention of selling her stake, so a buyer likely could not be counting on there being a path to control.

There are a multitude of factors, but it includes the NFL, the source said.

During the entirety of its 10-3 loss to the Jaguars in Sunday’s AFC wild-card playoff game, the Bills’ offense looked like it was running plays from inside that pool, under water.

Kids Clayton Fejedelem Jersey It was that ugly, that sluggish, and certainly some of the lack of production had to do with the Bills’ deficiencies on offense. But most of it had to do with the Jaguars’ defense, which suffocated Buffalo.

The Jaguars finished No. 2 in the NFL in scoring defense, allowing 16.8 points per game in the regular season. They bettered that number Sunday, allowing only a 31-yard Stephen Hauschka field goal in the second quarter.

It was one of the Jaguars’ best defensive performances of the season, and it came in the biggest game the franchise Womens Taijuan Walker Jersey played in a decade.

I think we can climb to the moon and further, Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said of the Jacksonville defense. The stars are the limit for us. As a defense, we understand that stats, paychecks and trying to get accolades doesn’t matter anymore. It’s about playing as a team and getting Ws. That’s what we’re about and that’s what we’re going to keep trying to do.

Leaders of the NFL Players Association, including executive director DeMaurice Smith, also participated.

The league and union issued a joint statement that said: “Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities. NFL executives and owners joined NFLPA executives and player leaders to review and discuss plans to utilize our platform to promote equality and effectuate positive change. We agreed that these are common issues and pledged to meet again to continue this work together.

A high-ranking official with one NFL team said in recent days that the owners would like to see the NFLPA support players standing for the anthem.

Another person familiar with the sport’s inner workings cautioned that Tuesday’s conversations between players and owners likely would focus on league support of player activism and might not address the anthem so directly. That appeared to be the case as the meeting concluded.

The Eagles and Vikings ranked 1-2 in run defense during the regular season. The Vikings were No. 1 in both total and scoring defense; the Eagles were No. 4. Offensively, the Eagles had the No. 3 rushing offense, while the Vikings ranked No. 7.

That means, down to the QBs, everything is pretty even with a trip to Super Bowl LII on the line. Will the Vikings “bring it home” as 3 1/2-point favorites, or will the Eagles hold serve at home for a second consecutive week?

When the Celtics lost to the 76ers last week without Irving, the thought was that when he returned he would revitalize the offense. Irving brought his own mega offense when he returned, but the rest of the team didn’t respond as anticipated. Jaylen Brown was solid with 17 points and seven rebounds, but Al Horford and Jayson Tatum combined for only 18 points on 22 shots to sink the unit. chargers_006

Mississippi State will host South Carolina on Feb. 5 in what will be one of the most anticipated games in Bulldogs history.

There will be some potential challenges before that, too, including a trip to No. 11 Missouri on Feb. 1. But there’ no doubt about it: This is a very, very good Mississippi State team that means business.

The NFLPA has argued that the league’s deliberations leading to Elliott’s suspension were flawed and that he did not receive a fair appeal hearing before Henderson, a former labor executive for the league, in part because Goodell and Elliott’s accuser in a domestic violence case were not ordered to testify.

The league has maintained that its procedures were fair and in compliance with the CBA and the personal conduct policy.

Brandon Fusco Mens Jersey The outcome of the Elliott case, at least for now, serves to further cement Goodell’s authority in matters of player discipline under the CBA, just as the NFLPA’s ultimately failed challenge in federal court of Tom Brady’s Deflategate suspension did. Brady played the entire 2015 season after a judge overturned the Zach Fulton Jersey four-game suspension of the New England Patriots quarterback.

His persona out in the public is not what most people see, said White, adding that he cringed when Ramsey vowed that the Jaguars would defeat the Patriots, winners of two of the past three Super Bowls, on Sunday in Foxborough.

The coaches wondered what turned him. Who or what had taken their thoughtful young student and turned his tongue silver?

A few weeks after Ramsey signed with Florida State, where he’d become the first freshman to start immediately at cornerback since Deion Sanders, he spent his spring break in Tallahassee watching film with his new team.

The NFL has been prevented all season, via the courtroom maneuvering, from enforcing its six-game suspension of Elliott under the personal conduct policy.

This week is a great opportunity for Allen to showcase his elite skill set on a level playing field.

Mayfield faced better competition throughout his career, but Allen never had the clean pockets or the reliable pass-catchers that Mayfield was afforded at Oklahoma — especially in 2017. With that in mind, Allen needs to show more consistency with his footwork (and subsequently his accuracy). His career 56.1 completion percentage in college will be a frequent discussion topic during the pre-draft process. The tape shows a quarterback who can make the tough throws look ridiculously easy at times; now he needs to show he can make the routine throws consistently. As a side note, I think Allen will do well in the classroom and his experience in a more pro-style system should give him a mental edge over some of the other spread-based QBs. — McShay

I’m actually more interested in seeing Mayfield’s numbers at the weigh-in than anything he does on the field this week. Is he really 6-foot-1 or is that a stretch? Based on standing eye to eye with him, my guess is he’s a little under that number. Is his hand span 9 inches or less? The five-year NFL combine average for QBs is 9.5 inches, and anything under 9 is concerning. It won’t define his career, but the Brandon Morrow Jersey list of sub 6-foot QBs who have had sustained success in the NFL is a short one. — McShay

My concern is with how Shazier went limp, including [temporarily] his arm. It is extremely worrisome how his legs, especially the left leg, flopped as he turned over. He did not sit up to help extricate his left arm from being trapped behind his back.

Nick Martin Jersey Some good news coming out from Steelers. Two players called Shazier’s injury a spinal chord concussion, comparable to Tommy Maddox injury in 2002; Maddox missed 1 game. Encouraging news, another said.

A first-round pick by the Steelers in 2014 out of Ohio State, Shazier was a Pro Bowl selection after the 2016 season and is among Pittsburgh’s best players. Tyler Matakevich, a 2016 seventh-round pick from Temple, came in for Shazier in Monday’s game.

Minnesota fans pushed the market demand after their win, StubHub said.

Some Minnesota Vikings fans might be worried about traveling to Philadelphia for this week’s NFC Championship Game, but there’s not much that will stop them from driving up the demand for Super Bowl tickets if their team wins on Sunday.

Whatever happened was bad enough that it kept Brady from fully participating in any Patriots’ practice this week. After being limited on Wednesday, Brady didn’t practice on Thursday and then was listed as a limited participant on Friday.

When Brady held his only press conference of the week on Friday, he was evasive when he was asked whether or not he thought he would end up playing on Sunday.

We’ll see, Brady said.

Dareus told me he doesn’t think he has anything to prove against his old team, but acknowledged this is a big week for him against LeSean McCoy and a Bills team that needs to run the ball to have a shot.

Are we for real? Dareus said. Are we going to move past and go see Pittsburgh? Or are we going to choke and let the Bills continue to make their run and give them momentum in the playoffs? That’s the real situation that we’re facing.

For multiple reasons, Dareus is hoping it’s the former.

However, they came out with a purpose against the Kings, closing the first half with an 11-2 run to build a 12-point lead at the break. They extended the lead to 20 in the second half before allowing the Bobby Orr Jersey lead to dwindle to three with 1:25 remaining after a 3-pointer by Bogdan Bogdanovic.

But there would be no collapse on this night.

Philly police taking possible Eagles NFC title seriously and it’s kind of funny

Attention, Northeast Philadelphia businesses: Consider yourself warned.

City police are taking a possible Eagles NFC championship victory seriously and it’s kind of funny.

And although it might sound as if the Philly police might be challenged in helping area business owners, that doesn’t prevent the police from asking for business owners’ help farther down the open letter.

It’s been almost 10 years since the Phillies won the World Series, the last championship in the city’s history, when hundreds of drunk and increasingly rowdy fans converged on Frankford and Cottman avenues to celebrate, reported at the time.

The Jaguars will enter Sunday’s showdown against the Patriots with an open mind.

Marquette (13-6, 4-3 Big East) has made 10 or more 3-pointers in 14 of its 19 games. The Golden Eagles will attack the Musketeers with a three-pronged attack, led by Howard, Rowsey, and Sam Hauser, who averages 15.1 points.

Unless you are in the wars and the battles night after night, you can’t fully appreciate the level of competition in this league. It is an honor to be a coach in this league but is damn hard, too, Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski said.

Maten, the SEC scoring leader, won the scoring showdown with Barford, who is third overall and the SEC’s top scorer in league games. Barford, who recorded his third straight game with at least 23 points, opened the second half with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer.
