Giants to hire Mike Shula as offensive coordinator, report says

There are no shortage of prop bets for Timberlake’s performance, from his outfit choice (what color shoes he’ll wear for the first song and if he’ll be wearing a hat) to his set list (whether or not he’ll perform a Prince song).

I’d expect a couple songs from when Timberlake first went solo (“Cry Me a River” and “Rock Your Body”), followed by a compilation of his solo work since, including a bit of “SexyBack”, “What Goes Around … Comes Around”, “Suit and Tie”, and his latest smash from the Trolls movie, “Can’t Stop The Feeling!”.

McNabb and the Eagles were coming off a Super Bowl appearance against the New England Patriots. Unfortunately, that was one of the last times the Eagles really contended with McNabb under center. The following season, the team went 4-5 in his starts, as he missed seven games with a groin injury.

The hype surrounding Alexander going into the 2006 season was huge. He had been improving every season, and had just got done rushing for 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns. Then, the curse struck. Alexander followed up a spectacular season by playing in just 10 games and rushing for 896 yards.

When Graham was traded to the Seahawks from the Saints in 2015, it was more about business than hard feelings, as he netted both center Max Unger and a first-round draft pick. The timing lines up with a potential welcome reunion for both sides.

What happened to Gronkowski? Gronkowski was concussed when Jaguars safety Barry Church landed a jarring hit to Gronkowski’s helmet during the Patriots’ 24-20 comeback win over the Jaguars. Church was flagged for unnecessary roughness and fined $24,309 for the hit.

What’s the latest from Super Bowl practice? The Patriots held Gronkowski out of practice for the entire bye week between the conference championship and the postseason. But Gronkowski participated in some of the Patriots’ football-specific drills on Saturday.

He caught a few uncontested passes in the portion of practice the Patriots allowed media to watch, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss. That suggests he’s close to being cleared for full participation. On Thursday, he finally got the OK from team doctors to resume full football activities.

Popovich had said that Leonard didn’t reinjure the quad and insisted that the organization was erring on the side of caution with its franchise player.

We did not match their work ethic, Canada forward Derek Roy said. It stings a lot. It is not a good feeling to lose a game like that.

Leonard made his season debut on Dec. 12. He later missed three games with the shoulder injury, then returned to the lineup on Jan. 13 against Denver, scoring 19 points in 28 minutes. Days later, Authentic Melker Karlsson Jersey the Spurs made public a decision to shut down Leonard indefinitely, sending him back to San Antonio from a team trip through the Northeast.

We’ll see. I want to be positive, said veteran point guard Tony Parker, who returned in November from a ruptured quadriceps tendon suffered during last season’s Western Conference semifinals. I had the same injury. I came back. So I want to stay positive that he’ll be back. I know he’s working hard. I’m just going to think positive.

Well, we’ve got to move on, Popovich said. The team has to realize that this is who we are, this is who we have, this is [who is] gonna play. Wishing and hoping doesn’t do anybody any good. We’ve got to do what we can to be the best team possible as the season winds down. There’s only 23 games left, something like that.

Manziel didn’t stick around the way Mayfield did 鈥?the latter put Oklahoma’s defensively challenged team in position for a championship before he left. Jackson was spectacular in 2016 and wasn’t far off in ’17, all the while benefiting from more pro-style concepts in Louisville’s spread offense.

There’s room to grow for both as players on and off the field. Their stories as NFL hopefuls have not yet been written, so it’s ridiculous to start writing them off as sequels to non-success tales.

As Mayfield and Jackson run the gauntlet of passing, running, poking, prodding, interviewing and interrogating, you can bet some teams still won’t shake preconceived notions of their types of quarterbacks. Those teams could end up being right, but there’s a much greater chance they’re wrong. The very definition of intangibles says they’re impossible to grasp.

How the Eagles defense seized its chance to stop Tom Brady and win the Super Bowl

Nick Foles and the offense had a good game of their own, enough to keep things close. The defense wanted the chance to win it, and Foles’ 11-yard touchdown to Ertz gave the defense one more chance to make a big play.
Women's Nike Oakland Raiders #15 Michael Crabtree White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
The Patriots had plenty of time for another comeback, but they had to open things up. On second-and-2 at their own 33-yard line, five receivers went into their notes. Nobody chipped, and there were only five blockers in front of Brady.

Safety was taken care of last year for the long haul with the early Jason Pominville Authentic Jersey drafting of Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. Corner is a whole different mess.

The plan here starts with re-signing free agent Morris Claiborne, who’s still only 28 and coming off a solid first season in New York after his many years in Dallas. The trick is also upgrading on the opposite site.

Yes, the Jets have a first-round consideration here, too, in Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick. There are some parallels with him being the next Darrelle Revis. He would give them a strong all-around corner and budding leader, and he would add to an impressive young back end with Adams and Maye.
Game Youth Orlando Cepeda Jersey
This is the toughest question to answer. Finding a starting quarterback isn’t cheap and it’s unlikely that any team is going to be interested in trading for him unless it believes he’ll start in 2018.

Foles is set to count just $7.6 million against the salary cap for the Eagles in 2018 with $3 million coming in a roster bonus. It’s a trade-friendly contract that teams can acquire with little long-term risk and will leave them protected if he turns back into a pumpkin.

So the Eagles can likely expect a second- or third-round draft pick in return for Foles.

For now, it’s celebration time. But Foles’ unlikely path to Super Bowl MVP creates a nice situation for Philadelphia’s future too.

ESPN adds Kirk Herbstreit to NFL draft coverage, replacing Jon Gruden

Kirk Herbstreit will take Jon Gruden’s place for ESPN’s coverage of the NFL draft.
Women's Adidas Vancouver Canucks #30 Ryan Miller Premier Green Salute to Service NHL Jersey
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.

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

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.
