Minnesota also is hoping to get receiver Stefon Diggs and linebacker Anthony Barr signed to extensions before they become free agents in March.

We want to keep all of our guys, and we’ll try to see if there’s a way that we can do that because those guys are very important to us and we would love to get them locked up as well, Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said, via Courtney Cronin of ESPN.

Spielman noted that the Vikings got three deals done last summer as salary-cap guru Rob Brzezinski worked his magic. The Vikings extended cornerback Xavier Rhodes, defensive end Everson Griffen and defensive tackle Linval Joseph.

The more you do anything, the more comfortable you feel, Hooper said. My rookie year, missing OTAs and not really getting to play football until camp, I was kind of just learning on the fly my whole rookie year. Last year, I felt a lot more comfortable in a lot of other aspects. There were a handful of plays that I left on the table, but that’s the game we play. All you can do is just keep improving and keep getting better.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and Fair Lawn, New Jersey police department announced that William Jenkins has been charged with that crime a day after Rene’s body was found in the basement of Janoris Jenkins’ home in Fair Lawn. William Jenkins is currently in police custody in Ontario County, New York and the New Jersey authorities note that the investigation into all the details of the case are ongoing.

William Jenkins was picked up by police after they responded to a call about Womens Willie Brown Jersey a man in suspicious condition early on Tuesday morning and arrested Jonathan Drouin Authentic Jersey him when they found he had an outstanding warrant.

West Virginia, Mississippi move closer to starting sports betting

With Delaware and New Jersey already taking bets on sporting events, two more states will soon be doing the same.
Fanatics Branded Zdeno Chara Breakaway Men's Jersey - NHL Boston Bruins #33 Black Home
Per multiple reports, Mississippi and West Virginia have moved closer to launching their sports wagering programs.

Mississippi plans to start taking bets in late July, and West Virginia hopes to have its system in place when football season launches.

In the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down a federal law that prohibits individual states from offering sports betting, it was estimated that Womens Mario Addison Jersey six to 10 states will have programs in place before the start of the 2018 NFL season.

Rice opens training camp on July 26 and begins the 2018 campaign with a game against Prairie View A&M on Aug. 25.

It’s a tremendous challenge getting fans to come out to the stadium these days. When (nearly) every game is on TV, why go to the stadium when you have to miss out on the six other games on TV plus you have to deal with spotty in-stadium plus having to fight through traffic and parking and obnoxious fans to your left and right — and, oh yeah, you still have to pay for your tickets and concessions on top of all that.

They stay at a nearby hotel, and because most do not have cars, it’s usually easier just to stay in to relax or get some studying in with a big playbook.

I like events like this because we call get to bond and get closer, defensive end Alec James said. We bond in practice, but this is different and a lot of fun.

For a player like Jones, who is coming off a season in which he led the NFL with 17 sacks, it would be natural to resist a possible position switch. But the Cardinals’ star, who would move from outside linebacker to defensive Fozzy Whittaker Jersey end in a 4-3, said he’s happy to play either spot.

The team has also regularly used fronts with four down linemen in past years, even though the defense was a 3-4. There is a hybrid nature to the NFL now, stuffed with subpackages, making the choice of the base scheme less important than it had been previously.

The Rams kicked a field goal to reveal sex of special teams coordinator John Fassel’s baby

The Los Angeles Rams found a fitting way to celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday.
Men's Nike Kansas City Chiefs #15 Patrick Mahomes II White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
Special teams coordinator John Fassel is about to become a father for the third time, so the Rams put together a field goal at the end of practice to reveal the sex of the baby on the way.

It was a better reveal than Kirk Cousins ‘ from last year when he spiked a tiny hacky sack (maybe?) into a cardboard Womens Tedric Thompson Jersey box structure. The Rams had much better form.

I’ve coached at that level. I’ve worked with All-Pro guys and Hall of Fame guys, Shaw said, and I’ve coached in every game except for the biggest one, so it’s not like, ‘OK, that’s my goal and I have to get there.’ My goal is to do great things at Stanford. If one day that happens, great, but it’s not a goal in my career to do that.

For an NFL team to get Shaw to change his mind, it’ll take one heck of an offer.

As frustrating as it may be for Michigan Wolverines fans, you can’t write a piece like this without mentioning Jim Harbaugh.

Igwenagu projects to multiple positions at the next level. But where will he start out at Rutgers?

The nickel position, he said. They run a 4-2-5 base formation, so I’ll be playing nickel. That’s a play-making position. Honestly, that’s one of the most important positions on the defense. So I’m excited and pumped for that.

And he’ll get started earlier than most.

I plan on early enrolling for sure, he said. I’ve been planning on that for a while now. I have all my credits to graduate, so…

However Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that probably won’t happen.

Bryant originally stated Terrell Brandon Authentic Jersey he wanted to stay in the NFC East, following his release from Dallas. But the Giants, Eagles and Redskins have not shown any interest, at least publicly.

Herrera homers again, Phillies rout Nationals 12-2

The way Odubel Herrera is going, he might have to make an extra trip to Washington next month.

Herrera homered for the fifth straight game and finished with four hits, helping the Philadelphia Phillies rout the Nationals 12-2 on Friday night.

Herrera hit a tiebreaking two-run shot in the third for his 13th homer, matching the club record for consecutive games with a long ball. He has connected in six of his last seven overall.

Eflin (5-2) allowed baserunners in every inning except the first but limited the damage to two runs over five innings in his fourth straight win.

Washington’s Tanner Roark (3-8) gave up six runs in 4 1/3 innings, and the Nationals needed four relievers to finish the game.

The last two starts I’ve left the bullpen out to dry, Roark said, and I’m just not happy about it.

Quintana hung a changeup on his second pitch to Suarez, who has four homers in his last six games.

I just missed my spot — a bad pitch, Quintana said through a translator. A bad time to have that happen.

Suarez also singled twice and extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games, the longest by a Reds third baseman since Todd Frazier hit in 14 straight in 2014.

Javier Baez drove in a run with a bunt single off Luis Castillo (5-8), and Kyle Schwarber followed with a two-run homer, his third in four games. Castillo went 5 2/3 innings for his first victory since May 24, ending a streak of four straight losses.

Raisel Iglesias retired the side in the ninth for his 12th save in 14 chances.

That was one of our cleaner ballgames of the season, interim manager Jim Riggleman said. We played a good ballgame — offensively, defensively, ran the bases well, timely hitting.

I’m in for whatever they say, Madrigal said.

The Cubs went on to win the game 7-0.

While that concern includes things like footwork and receiving ability, it also consists of how well a player can manage an entire pitching staff or scout an opposing lineup, things professional catchers are expected to do every day. Though Bart certainly has had experience in calling his own game behind the plate, it’s likely that experience is limited and his first few seasons in the minors will demonstrate how adept he is in learning that area of his craft.

Offensively, even though he has hit for average and power in his career, he has also struck out his fair share, whiffing 50 or more times in each of the previous two seasons. If it turns out that Bart becomes a liability behind the plate and his raised batting average and OBP come crashing down as a professional as his strike outs rise, it’s possible whichever team drafts him could move him from catcher to first base.

Rockies draft pick Ryan Rolison addresses ‘stupid tweet’ about Obama

The Rockies selected Tyler Thornburg Jersey Ryan Rolison from Ole Miss with the 22nd pick in the 2018 MLB Draft on Monday, and it didn’t take long for Twitter users to dig up a tweet he sent in Roger Lewis Womens Jersey 2012.
Replica Walter Payton Youth Alternate Navy Blue Reebok Jersey - #34 NFL Chicago Bears
Over the course of his career he has shown a knack for identifying top talent, and we look forward to him doing the same here in Phoenix for the Alliance.

The Phoenix team will be coached by Rick Neuheisel.

I’m really looking forward to working with Rick, in his hometown of Phoenix, where we will strive to put together a first-class organization and a championship-caliber team, Savage said. We’re going to give this city a professional spring football team they will be proud of.

The AAF, which will begin play in February 2019, has yet to determine how it will go about allocating players. Co-founder Charlie Ebersol addressed that issue, along with various others, during a recent visit to the #PFTPM podcast.

Before becoming director of the Senior Bowl, Savage served as G.M. of the Cleveland Browns.

Golf is definitely our thing, hopefully I can beat him again like I usually do, Rodgers II said. It’ll be nice to hang out with my dad outside of the work setting again and just get back to doing what we do best, being a family.

Upon a follow-up question, he continued: You haven’t been listening. I’m very open.

In April, the 35-year-old Davis was suspended the first four games of the regular season for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. He insisted on Thursday that he never knowingly took anything illegal, and that the supplements he was using were the same ones he’s used the last eight years. He said because so much time passed between his positive test and the notification, there was no way to test the product.

He also declined to identify the product, because he said a friend owns the company that provided it.

There’s technically one hurdle before either venue can begin offering betting.

The New Jersey Racing Commission is meeting Wednesday to approve temporary regulations, and then Murphy must approve them to give Monmouth Park a waiver to start.

The state Division of Gaming Enforcement is expected to do the same for Borgata. The division did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Scroll through the gallery at the top of the story for photos from the Yankees’ 72nd annual Old-Timers’ Day.

Giambi, who retired in 2015, said the Yankees reached out to him in the William Perry Jersey offseason to gauge his interest in a job with the organization.

I think they kind of tested to see where I was at and I just said I wasn’t ready, Giambi said at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, the 47-year-old’s first Old-Timers’ Day.

He added the conversation went like, ‘Hey, what are you up to? Do you want to get your feet wet?’ Stuff like that.

What are old Yankees doing?

Phil Mickelson, Joe Skovron – Fowler’s caddie – and a few other’s crashed the Tuesday round, too.

It was just a fun day with the guys hanging, Fowler said. My fiancee, Allison, was walking around, hanging out. So we all had a good time. I’ll tell you what, Tom Brady can putt.

McIlroy may not have had the star-studded foursome, but he was still equally eager to cut loose on the links.

I don’t think he has a bad relationship [with us], Pouncey told TMZ Sports. If he wants to talk, we’ll talk. Trump, who has consistently been critical of NFL players who protest racial inequality and police brutality by kneeling or demonstrating during the playing of the national anthem before games, said earlier in June he would be willing to speak with players Vince Biegel Jersey about potentially pardoning inmates who were unjustly imprisoned.

NHL free agency rumors: Ex-Devil Ilya Kovalchuk down to handful of teams?

Former Devil forward Ilya Kovalchuk appears to be getting closer to finding his new NHL home.
Nike Geronimo Allison Youth Black Limited Jersey: #81 NFL Green Bay Packers 2016 Salute To Service
The 35-year-old Russian, who is set to return to the NHL after five seasons playing in the KHL after his sudden retirement from the Jalen Ramsey Jersey Devils in 2013, is meeting and talking with NHL teams.

Kovalchuk can’t sign a new contract until July 1, but Pierre LeBrun of TSN and The Athletic said the forward and his camp hope to have a deal in place leading up to the start of NHL free agency.

Among the surprises for teams not listed are the New York Islanders, who would have seemed like a natural landing Womens Lorenzo Cain Jersey spot for Kovalchuk given his past relationship with new GM and former Devils executive Lou Lamoriello. Since Kovalchuk can’t sign a contract until July 1, there’s still a chance that changes in the coming weeks.

Hicks pulled the Yankees within 3-1 in the bottom of the fifth inning when he hit a two-out, solo home run deep into the right-field grandstands. The Yankees threatened to add on in the inning following walks to Aaron Judge and Didi Gregorius, but Giancarlo Stanton struck out swinging to end the threat.

Following a leadoff single by Gregorius in the eighth inning, the Yankees couldn’t capitalize, with Stanton striking out, Greg Bird grounding out and Gary Sanchez striking out. The Yankees combined to strike out 12 times on Sunday.

This one’s a no-brainer: Wentz was having an MVP-caliber season before he tore his ACL and LCL last December, and he’ll re-join a loaded Eagles team expected to contend for the Super Bowl once again in 2018. If you could build a team around any player in the league right now, Wentz would be the pick for a lot of people. That’s pretty much the textbook definition of a superstar. Wentz is a no-doubter for the club, and it still feels like the Browns probably should have drafted him.

Aaron Rodgers: Reports about contract talks are just conjecture

With two years left on his contract, Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have a drop-dead date to get a new one. The Packers quarterback deserves to become the highest-paid player in football and is expected to become just that at some point in the near future.

But will Rodgers remain the highest-paid quarterback the rest of his career?

Rodgers has outplayed the extension he signed in 2013, which is scheduled to pay him $19.8 million this season and $20 million in 2019. His yearly average of $22 million ranks only 10th in the league at his position.

It seems obviously Treadwell needs to show more, do more and be better in his third season.

It’s important any time you are in your third year; it’s important, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. He is continuing to get better. I think he stopped being so hard on himself and is just letting it flow now. I think that is part of it.

But Treadwell shrugged off the idea it’s a make-or-break season.

I think it’s a make-or-break year for everyone, not just myself, Treadwell said. A lot of guys speak on it: Every year is a new year. You’ve got to reprove yourself…. I just don’t put the pressure on myself as a make-or-break year.

The Vikings have a need for a No. 3 receiver behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. They signed Kendall Wright to compete with Treadwell for the job.

Following that six months, Goodell met with Gordon again and granted his request for reinstatement.

It was the 61st overall selection.

Breaux, 20, was the 71st best prospect in the draft, according to He’s 6-foot-1 and weighs 220 pounds. The Astros picked him in the 36th round of the 2017 draft.

I look at a piece of pizza, chicken wings, I love them,he Dennis Schroder Jersey said. I’ve tried to put them in a blender and grind them up, but it doesn’t taste quite the same. It is what it is, but I know from my traveling, I don’t have it that bad. I know I say that a lot, but there’s people who have it a lot worse than me. The thing is, I’m here.

Herndon, traveling in the westbound lanes, allegedly crashed his Nissan Armada SUV into a Toyota Land Cruiser that was towing a vintage vehicle, Sgt. Lawrence Peele said. The car was being driven Albert Elliott, 72, of Manalapan. 

Troopers arrived on the scene to investigate and suspected Herndon of being under the Womens Ondrej Pavelec Jersey influence of alcohol, put in handcuffs and taken from the scene.

A breathalyzer taken at the the State Police barracks revealed that Herndon’s blood-alcohol level was over the legal limit and he was charged with DWI. Herndon was was not taken to jail and released from the station later that morning. 

Peele said there were no serious injuries reported at the scene. According to the Miami Herald, Elliott suffered a bruised and lacerated arm. It’s not clear if Herndon was injured. The Herald also reported that a railroad motorcar being towed by Elliott was demolished.

Pirates, Diamondbacks engaged in eye-for-eye series

Things can turn ugly when the Pittsburgh Pirates and Arizona Diamondbacks play. It Authentic Steve Mason Jersey happened again in the Diamondbacks’ 9-5 victory Monday.
Reebok NHL Women's Tobias Rieder Black Third Premier Jersey - #8 Arizona Coyotes
Pittsburgh hit three batters and Arizona hit two in the eye-for-an-eye game that the Pirates seem to believe in. No one appeared to be seriously hurt this time not like Paul Goldschmidt, who was forced to miss two months with a fractured hand when he was hit in 2014 or Andrew McCutchen, who missed a month with a rib cage injury after being hit two days later.

Cleveland (35-29) is coming off a 4-0 win in Monday’s series opener in which Michael Brantley went deep for his 11th home run and Carlos Carrasco struck out 11 in seven innings.

Sabathia is 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three career starts against Washington.Dee Gordon solidifying second base job, Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto says

As the Seattle Mariners keep winning games, their 41-24 record and view from the top of the American League West has forced them to contemplate their plans for Robinson Cano once the eight-time All-Star returns from the suspended list in August.

The only apparent certainty: When Cano gets back on the field, it will not be as the team’s full-time second baseman.

Cano received an 80-game suspension on May 15 for a violation of Major League Baseball’s joint drug agreement. He’s eligible to return Aug. 14 in Oakland, but is ineligible for the postseason under baseball rules.

It’s pretty plain to see, that when guys have established themselves for four or five or six years at a spot, and they’ve been really effective at what they do, it’s hard to convince the next guy that he’s going to take their spot, Carroll said. That’s for sure. So when opportunities are more open, it does create, in the truest sense, the best connection to what the philosophy and the approach is all about.

And it feels like Pat Tillman Jersey four or five years ago. It feels fresh and wide open, it’s more of an open competition for some of the spots. And that’s a really good thing for us, because it does feed into the whole approach.
