Robby Anderson gets six months probation for reckless driving

Posted on by

Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson has resolved the final charge from a January arrest in South Florida.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports, via Anderson’s lawyer, that the wideout pleaded no contest to a reckless driving charge on Wednesday. He was sentenced to six months of non-reporting probation and Garafolo adds that the NFL’s review of the incident under the Personal Conduct Policy is ongoing.

Anderson was arrested after being clocked at 105 mph in a 45 mph zone. He was initially charged with felonies, including harming a public servant or public servant’s family, but they were dismissed and only the misdemeanor reckless driving charge remained on the docket.

Zadina will have every opportunity to make the Red Wings next season given the state of the franchise. Two playoff-less seasons has the franchise in rebuilding mode and allowing him to develop immediately at the NHL level could go a long way to seeing him become an integral part of a turnaround.

A deft and agile skater, he exhibits explosive mobility both up and down the ice, according to Elite Prospects, Zadina is eager to prove his worth to Red Wings fans and hopes his play can one day equal that of Nikita Kucherov of the Tampa Bay Lighting, whom he models his game after.

He won’t even be close to the oldest Bucs opening day starting quarterback, either. Brad Johnson was a day short of his 36th birthday in 2004, Jeff Garcia was 38 in 2008, and Steve DeBerg was 39 in 1993.

The suspension also moves Ryan Sean Mannion Jersey Griffin up a chair, and he’ll back up Fitzpatrick. The 28-year-old has never thrown an NFL pass.

The Orioles Xavien Howard Youth Jersey failed to build on any momentum they had after winning 85 or more games in four of the past six seasons. But sometimes when a door closes a window opens, and the opportunity to trade Manny Machado with an eye on the future is something that the Orioles should — and probably will — embrace wholeheartedly.

The Orioles have arguably the best trade chip of any team on the market in Machado; a free agent after the year, Machado is putting up his best offensive season to date, with a.994 OPS (171 OPS+), 15 home runs and 44 RBIs. Those are video game numbers.

MLB trade rumors: Orioles’ Manny Machado to contender with deep pockets? No, it’s not the Yankees

Posted on by

The Baltimore Orioles will take the field Friday against the Blue Jays with a 19-42 record, good for last place in the AL East and the worst record in the majors.
Men's Nike New York Jets #87 Clive Walford Limited Olive/Gold 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
So it would seem it’s only a matter of time before the Orioles get serious about moving shortstop Manny Machado before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline.

Machado is having an MVP-caliber season for the Orioles. He’s fourth in the American League with 18 home runs. Machado is second in the league with 50 RBI. He is seventh in the AL with a.322 batting average.

Great, but: Luck’s brain isn’t the problem. His shoulder is. Well, his throwing motion is the problem. The shoulder itself is enormous, as is everything else about Luck’s upper body. He walked past the media on Thursday Andy Andreoff Authentic Jersey looking as big as I’ve ever seen him. Looks like he can lift a fridge, but he can’t — or won’t — throw a football.

The Houston Texans are hoping for the same with Deshaun Watson. The 2017 first-round pick saw his tremendously impressive rookie campaign end early due to an ACL tear suffered in practice. With 19 passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in only seven games, Watson was a Chad Johnson Jersey shoo-in for Offensive Rookie of the Year before his injury, but the award instead went to Saints running back Alvin Kamara.

For Miami Dolphins fans, optimism surrounding Ryan Tannehill probably isn’t as high. The 2012 first-round pick did enough to get a four-year, $77 million extension from the Dolphins in 2015. But in five years as a starter, Tannehill never established himself as more than a middle-of-the-pack quarterback.

Now Tannehill is about to turn 30 and will be returning from a knee injury that cost him the end of the 2016 season and all of 2017. To secure his place as the Dolphins’ quarterback of the foreseeable future, Tannehill has the tall task of returning better than ever after his knee surgery.

Noah Syndergaard injury update: Mets pitcher placed on DL with sore index finger

Posted on by

Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 26, after an MRI exam confirmed that he has a strained ligament in the index finger of his pitching hand, the team announced Tuesday.

The move came after Syndergaard, 25, was examined Tuesday at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery for soreness in the finger. He had been listed as the Wednesday’s probable starter for the Mets (26-25) against the first-place Braves.

Vargas has struggled in four of five starts since coming off the DL. Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler have been up and down, too. New York called up PJ Conlon to start Monday’s second game of a day-night doubleheader against the Braves, and another starter, Chris Flexen, pitched in a mop-up role Saturday.

Like I said, Yasiel is gifted. A talent like that, I never saw before. I am serious. I never saw Bo Jackson play, and I heard Bo Jackson was amazing. But for me, in my eyes, a talent like that, you can tell this kid is so gifted. The way how he plays the outfield. The arm he has; his hitting ability. He has so much in him that he just has to get to know himself to be on that other level. He is not there yet, but I hope one day he just gets it, and he will get to that level.

I know he has had his ups and downs already, he has been wildly productive, Boone said (via the New York Post) of Stanton, who is batting .202 with six home runs at Yankee Stadium this season. Over time and continuing to work at it and continue to get more comfortable and there will be that period I am confident he will take off.

Despite his comparative struggles, Stanton still has 11 home runs, which is tied for fourth on the team with Gregorius — who hit 10 of those homers in April.

Since being named AL Player of the Month with those 10 homers and 30 RBIs in April, Gregorius is batting a putrid .131 with only four RBIs.

I think he understands that this game can be tough sometimes and understands he has the equipment to get through it and the skills to get through it, Boone said of his shortstop, who went 2-for-4 in Monday’s loss. I think he also understands he impacts our club in other ways even when he is not swinging the bat.

Colts will limit Andrew Luck’s workload in training camp

Posted on by

Andrew Luck threw real footballs last week. Yes, that’s still a big deal, as the Colts quarterback recovers from a shoulder injury that cost him last season.

And while all signs are positive about his eventual recovery, he’s still very much in the process of recovery, and the Colts know he’s valuable enough to treat it as such.

According to Albert Breer of, the Colts plan to limit Luck’s work throughout the summer to make sure there are no setbacks, including days off during training camp. They also plan to monitor his practice reps, to try to mirror his workload during the regular season.

While that makes perfect medical sense, it still puts him behind in terms of repetitions and familiarity with a new system and new players, since he’s not actually on the field running those plays with those people.

Harrison quickly was reminded that the coaching staff and front office likely wouldn’t be thrilled with the 350-pound lineman leveling the prized rookie.

You get in between the lines, you get the ball in your hands, I don’t give a damn what anybody says. It’s time to work, Harrison said. I don’t think we’ll be able to hit him too hard, but I’m gonna hit his ass.

This is probably one of the Saquon Barkley Womens Jersey best Brian O’Neill Jersey – if not the best – quarterbacks rooms, in general, that I’ve had, Haley said. The group, in general, is what I’m excited about. I think that it’s an intelligent, intelligent group, with ability to throw the football and make plays with their legs, some of them. When you have that, I think that good things happen. Competition is created in the room, even though they’re working hard together to help each other and get better as a group.

Haley and head coach Hue Jackson are in complete agreement that Taylor is the team leader.

I thought that Tyrod has done a tremendous, tremendous job of establishing himself as the leader of this offense. His car is there every morning in his spot when I get here in the morning, and it’s there when I’m leaving, Haley said. That’s what you’re looking for in the leader of your offense. I think that he’s done a great job with understanding the terminology, concepts and all of the different things. Like I said, we threw a lot at him. He’s more of a show what to do, more than by talking. I’ve really been impressed and encouraged by him.

College World Series 2018: Scores, results, brackets in Omaha

Posted on by

The 2018 College World Series field is set after the completion of the NCAA baseball super regionals. Oregon State, North Carolina, Washington, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Texas, Texas Tech and Florida will battle it out in Omaha, Neb., for the college baseball crown. Florida, the defending champion, leads the way as the top seed.

The teams are split into two, four-team brackets in a double-elimination format, with the winner of each bracket meeting in the best-of-three championship series.

We like talking a lot. We talk about goofy stuff. We always like to make sure people understand we have interests outside of baseball, Brault said.

Really the whole goal is to show that we have lives outside of baseball, even during the baseball season. We’re not at the field 24 hours a day, Brault said. We’re not your elementary teacher who slept at the school. We have other interests, and we like to bring people in and show them that.

If you treat them like a rookie, they’ll become a rookie, Bates said, via the New York Post. So we threw the whole book at him to see what he can handle and what he needs to work on—just like the other two—and he’s done a really good job. Ever since rookie Womens Guy Lafleur Jersey camp, he hasn’t flinched.

Bates added: We’re throwing everything at him. If he can handle it, if he can prove that he’s the starter, then Jeff Driskel Authentic Jersey that will take place when the time comes.

The coach explained more about Daronold’s playmaking ability and gave praise to the rookie’s quick thinking and how he’s able to ad-lib.

His suddenness, Bates said. If you watch his college tape, he has the ability to make plays off schedule. He’s just very sudden. If he sees a guy open, the ball is out now. I kind of describe him as a very sudden player. There’s not a lot of wasted thought process, as you go from him thinking to releasing the ball..

NBA mock draft: Knicks finding franchise point guard at No. 9?

Posted on by

You can’t have too many point guards.
Nike Youth White Authentic Jersey - Phoenix Suns Customized Association Edition NBA
That’s not actually a catch phrase, but might become one around the Knicks if CBS Sports’ latest mock draft comes to fruition.

Despite taking Frank Ntilikina in the first round last year, trading for Emmanuel Mudiay and signing Trey Burke, the Knicks could still be searching for a true star at the position in the upcoming 2018 NBA Draft.

They’re saying people are aggrieved. OK. Let me know about it. I’ll look at it. If they’re aggrieved, I’ll pardon them. I’ll get them out, Trump said. Maybe they’ve called the staff. But I have not personally heard from one. Because I don’t know if it’s a real issue. I don’t think it’s Aaron Jones Womens Jersey a real issue.

Trump also reiterated his long-standing belief that NFL players should stand during the pregame rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner. He has criticized players who have kneeled as unpatriotic and disrespectful to military members, even as players have described the gesture as a means of protesting police brutality and systemic issues of racial inequality.

Pederson said that, as of 12:01 AM on Friday morning, it would be time to the turn the page.

Well, when 12:01 AM hit on Friday, the Eagles were deep into their celebrations, singing along to Dreams and Nightmares and gawking at their new, shiny bling. Hours earlier, as Shaq Mason Authentic Jersey the team arrived at 2300 Arena, it was much calmer than it would, understandably, get in the building of the much-anticipated event.

Players, coaches, executives and staffers arrived (watch the video above). There were reunions with players who, since the Super Bowl victory over the Patriots in February, have since departed. The anticipation was palpable.

I think this, for me, I’m going to be overwhelmed, said Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills, one of the early arrivers. I never won anything in high school, in college (at LSU) we won a couple bowl games but it wasn’t a National Championship. As far as this goes, seeing what it took, the adversity we had to fight to get to the Super Bowl, to get to this moment, it’s going to be overwhelming for me.

Minkah Fitzpatrick signs with Dolphins

Posted on by

The Dolphins waited a lot longer than their peers to start signing draft picks, but they are making up for lost time on Friday.

Shortly after word that sixth-round pick Cornell Armstrong agreed to his deal came multiple reports that first-round pick Minkah Fitzpatrick has also signed with the team. Fitzpatrick’s deal is for four years with a team option for a fifth season.

Fitzpatrick, who was the 11th overall pick, won the Thorpe Award as the best defensive back in the country in recognition of his work at Alabama last season. Fitzpatrick saw time at both cornerback and safety for the Crimson Tide and showed a knack for rushing the passer as well, which should lead to work in a variety of roles with the Dolphins as well.

The content of those conversations between Trump and owners – as well as any forms of pressure directed at the league by the administration – are expected to shape the requests to force the testimony of Trump, Pence and other affiliated officials, sources said.

NFL’s former P.R. exec takes issue with President’s cancellation of Eagles trip

It’s unknown what Joe Lockhart would have said about the President’s cancellation of the White House visit by the Super Bowl champion Eagles if Lockhart were still the NFL’s top in-house P.R. executive. It is known what Lockhart did say in his capacity as a former NFL employee.

Official statements from the President used to be serious thoughtful expressions of national interest, said Lockhart, who served as the White House press secretary under President Clinton, on Twitter. Now they are childish rants. The latest — if some of the [Super Bowl] champs don’t want to come to the [White House], then none of them are invited. POTUS will play with his toys alone tomorrow.

The President uninvited the Eagles on the eve of the visit, claiming that [t]hey disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our country.

Why Giants shouldn’t be lumped in with bottom NFL teams

Posted on by

The reason Beckham’s continued absence is a big deal is because it feels like a precursor to a potential training camp holdout.
Men's Nike Minnesota Vikings #4 Ryan Quigley Limited Purple Player Name & Number Tank Top NFL Jersey
Beckham wants a long-term contract extension as the highest paid receiver in the NFL more than $17 million per year and the Giants haven’t shown much urgency to get a deal done.

The change in leadership atop the Giants, with general manager Dave Gettleman and Shurmur coming in. Gettleman has a policy of not discussing contracts contracts get done when they are supposed to get done,he believes while Shurmur has prioritized building a strong communicative relationship with Beckham.

Breaux has well above-average raw power to all fields and an aggressive right-handed swing that generates uncommon bat speed. He has a maximum-effort approach at the plate (and on the mound), and while he doesn’t strike out excessively, his lack of patience is A.J. Bouye Womens Jersey a cause of concern. He did show that his pop plays with wood bats and against better pitching when he finished fifth in the Cape Cod League with six homers last summer.

Scouts were skeptical of Breaux’s ability to stay at catcher when they saw him as a freshman, but he has improved defensively and projects as at least an adequate receiver.

And here’s what had to say about Seigler:

He’s agile behind the plate, has a Darren Woodson Jersey quick transfer that helps his arm play as plus at times and shows promise as a receiver and pitch framer. He’s more athletic than most catchers, along the lines of Austin Barnes, and could profile as an everyday second baseman as well.

Diddy no longer interested in NFL ownership because of ‘oppression of black men’

Posted on by

Sean Diddy Combs expressed interest in NFL ownership earlier this year when the Panthers went on the market, but he appears to be backtracking on those aspirations.
Women's Omar Infante Replica Navy Blue Majestic Jersey: MLB Detroit Tigers #4 Alternate Cool Base
I’m just at a point where my feelings are hurt because I’m such an NFL fan, Diddy said. And I hope they do what they have to do to fix it. And I hope that they re-engage my dream to want to do that, because if not, I don’t want to be associated, to be around a table that does that to people at all.

The movement started during the 2016 NFL preseason when former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem to protest what he called the oppression of people of color in the U.S. Kaepernick hasn’t been able to find a job since and has started a collusion case against the NFL, claiming he has been blacklisted due to his decision to kneel during the anthem.

Manziel completed 12 of his 20 passes for 88 yards in the Tiger-Cats’ 30-15 victory over the Montreal Alouettes. He also threw his first touchdown pass.

By no means is (my play) perfect, or close to perfect, but there are some flashes, things I know and feel comfortable with, Manziel said (via TSN). There are things that I should hit on the field that I missed today. That’s just part of trying to get better and get back in a Jeff Heath Jersey feel of playing ball every day, week in Cam Robinson Youth Jersey and week out.

Manziel signed with the Tiger-Cats in late May. The team opens the regular season June 16 against the Calgary Stampeders.

What Montgomery had in baseball was a live arm, which wasn’t reaching its full potential at William S. Hart High School in Santa Clarita, California. His season always started later because of his commitments to the hardwood. That changed one night his senior year.

N.J. students have a ball with Trump and Mariano Rivera at the White House

His receivers included two eighth graders at St. Francis Academy in Union City, Matthew Potter and Helena Stuhr, both 14.

It was very fun to pass the ball around and worked on team building activities, said Helena, who lives in Hoboken. I was very honored to be at the White House.

Joe Giglio : Golden State is an all-time great team. James is on the path to become the best player to ever lace up a pair of sneakers. Unlike last year, this series doesn’t feel as predetermined. Clearly, Golden State’s home court advantage and depth is a major factor and enough reason to assume a third title in four years. But the Warriors have looked, well, off all postseason long. Meanwhile James continues to give his team a shot. This will be a more difficult series than some believe for the Warriors. Authentic Marquise Goodwin Jersey

At a Heinz Field ceremony Wednesday, team president Art Rooney II unveiled the new look, which the Steelers will wear in their Week 8 home game against the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 28.

The throwbacks are modeled after the ones worn by the Steelers’ back-to-back Super Bowl champion teams in 1978 and 1979.

We are coming up on the 40th Anniversary of Super Bowl XIII and next year will be the 40th anniversary of Super Bowl XIV, so we thought it was a good time to celebrate those teams and those years by bringing back that jersey and that uniform,Rooney said.

We’re excited about being able to celebrate what was a great time in Steelers history and celebrate those teams.

Matthew Spencer Jersey I’ve heard a lot of people bemoan how Dallas is sending Dak Prescott up a creek without Dez Bryant, and so it’s been interesting to hear that the buzz coming out of that building reflects the opposite. There’s a belief that this could unlock Prescott’s strength, which is to play the position like a point guard does鈥攕eeing the field, and throwing to the open guy, unburdened by the feeling of having to keep Bryant engaged.
