Tom Brady creates ‘suspect board’ to find missing Super Bowl jersey

As the investigation for the jersey valued at half a million dollars continues, the Patriots quarterback decided to get in on the action and hilariously shared a photo of a board of potential suspects on his Instagram account Wednesday.

The Green Bay dynasty, still perhaps the defining era in National Football League history, died a glorious death on a 60-degree day at the Orange Bowl in Miami, the Pack cruising to a 30-7 lead after three quarters even as many of the key parts of the team advanced toward the finish line. Most important, this was Lombardi’s final game as Green Bay coach, and the next year the Packers wouldn’t even field a winning team. They won five NFL titles between 1961 and 1967. This was the least of those teams, but still a champion.

This team is sandwiched in between two Colts’ teams that had better regular-season records, but it was time for Tony Dungy and Peyton Manning to finally break through. Manning threw a career-low nine interceptions, and the Colts lost three of their last five before the playoffs. After beating Kansas City and Baltimore, Manning’s time finally came. Indianapolis rallied from a 21-3 deficit to beat Super Cheap Jerseys Fans New England in the AFC championship, then knocked off Chicago in a rain-soaked Super Bowl XLI. Manning finally won that first ring, perhaps when it was least expected.

NFL Combine 2017: Wisconsin RB Corey Clement has lots of questions to answer

The 2017 NFL Draft is one of the deepest ever when it comes to running backs.

The class is topped by Florida State’s Dalvin Cook, LSU’s Leonard Fournette and Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey, but there are a handful of others who could be solid contributors in the NFL.

Wisconsin’s Corey Clement considers himself among the best backs in this year’s draft, especially after a bounce-back senior season that saw him earn first-team All-Big Ten honors. While Clement is not listed among the top 10 running backs on most analysts’ draft boards, he believes he belongs.

“I’m sorry we couldn’t bring you a championship, but I wish you and my former organization the very best in your pursuit for one in the future,” Marshall wrote in a lengthy Instagram post. “I’m looking forward to finding a great organization where I can contribute and bring home a championship. I know I Cheap NFL Jerseys China have a lot left to give.”

Teams certainly will be interested in the 6-4 reception machine, who will turn 33 on March 23. He is one of only five players in NFL history to catch 100 passes or more in three Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys consecutive seasons, and he holds the NFL single-game record with 21 receptions.

Brady drew some criticism this time a year ago for comments he made about concussions and CTE.

The league added that it has been in contact with the NFL Players’ Association about the matter and would continue to “gather more information” from the Patriots and Brady.

Oddly enough, Brady drew some criticism this time a year ago for comments he made about concussions and CTE.

“It’s just part of life, you know, not only football, but contact sports,” Brady told ABC News. “It’s part of people walking down the street. You run, you fall, you hit your head. There’s Cheap Jerseys Paypal Free Shipping a lot of sports that are involved, but I think it’s good there’s more awareness than there’s been in the past. Women’s soccer and cycling, water polo, there’s a lot of sports.”

“A lot of people probably don’t know this: Let’s say I played well, was a 1,000-yard receiver last year, it would have been more difficult from a fan perspective to cut me. If I’m a 1,000-yard guy, they’re like, ‘Why are you cutting Cruz? He just had 1,000 yards and had five or six Cheap Jerseys Soccer touchdowns. That doesn’t make sense.’

“But if I have 500 yards or whatever the case may be, it’s a little easier on the fans to be like, ‘Oh, he didn’t play well, so that’s why the cut him.’ And if I played well, they owed me a ton of money that next year so it was like, ‘Let’s get Cruz off the books.’”
Cruz admitted it sounds odd for a playoff team to not feature a player who is performing well, but he says it’s the only conclusion he can come up with.

“Even just to think about someone coming up to the quarterback and saying ‘Hey, don’t throw it here’ or ‘Don’t give it to this guy’ — it’s hard to even fathom that thought. Which I don’t even know or think happens. I doubt it,” he said. “But when you look at the film and you look at how it goes down, that’s the only way.”

Blue Jays, Jose Bautista agree to 1-year deal, reports say

Free-agent right fielder Jose Bautista reached agreement Tuesday on a one-year deal with the Blue Jays, according to multiple reports.

According to FanRag Sports, the deal is worth $18 million guaranteed in 2017 with options that could take it to as much as $60 million over three years.

“You’re never going to see that again in your life … never. You’re never going to see the show Mark and I put on … never. You’re not going to see that excitement again. We were the ones bringing more fans to the stadium … I feel proud of what I did. The only thing is, they can say whatever they want to say about me. First of all, I’m clean. They don’t have a case on me. I never failed a drug test. Never in my life.

“But you know what – this is not my field anymore. I’d rather not be in the Hall of Fame and have a lot of money in my pocket than to be in the Hall of Fame and try to find money to pay my bills (laughing) … You saw me grow up, you saw how hard I was working. A lot of people say so many things, but I’m telling you — they have nothing on me. I’m not going to go out there begging, because they have no case. They had the Mitchell Report trying to find something, but they had nothing on Mr. Sosa.”
Asked a follow-up question about whether he believed he Cheap Jerseys USA had been found guilty without any evidence being presented, this was Sosa’s response:

“Chuck, it’s like Jesus Christ when he came to Jerusalem. Everybody thought Jesus Christ was a witch (laughing) — and he was our savior. So if they talk s— about Jesus Christ, what about me? Are you kidding me?”

Boston mayor says person who taunted Orioles’ Adam Jones isn’t a fan: ‘Nothing but a racist’

Boston mayor Marty Walsh had some strong comments for the person at Fenway who taunted Orioles outfielder Adam Jones.

Christie’s remarks referred to the Phillies’ decision to put the famous “Ya Gotta Believe!” slogan on a huge mural at their spring-training facility in Clearwater, Fla. Former Mets reliever Tug McGraw coined that inspirational phrase during the Mets’ long-shot run to the 1973 World Series.

In fairness, McGraw also used the slogan later after he was traded to the Phillies. Christie, a Mets fan, apparently doesn’t care. But it’s not like he needed an excuse to hate on Philadelphia sports. Last month, Christie, a Dallas Cowboys fan, made similarly nasty remarks about the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans.

“Now Eagles fans I can understand it from a little more because the Eagles do suck and they’ve sucked for a long time,” Christie said, via CSNPhilly.com. “And their fans are generally angry, awful people.”

The Phillies quickly issued a response defending their fans, tweeting, “We love our fans and appreciate their unwavering support as we “bridge” to a bright future!”

Once mentioned as a possible vice presidential candidate or Cheap Jerseys In USA cabinet member in a Trump administration, Christie told CNN this week that, “I have absolutely no intention, nor any understanding, that I will be asked to be in the administration in the years to come.”

That should leave Christie plenty of time to talk sports. No word on how he feels about the Philadelphia 76ers or Flyers.

Astros quietly emerging as possibly baseball’s best team

Through the first six weeks of the 2017 MLB season, there are five teams with at least 20 wins.

The Yankees (21-10) and Orioles (22-11) are in a dead heat atop the American League East. The Nationals (22-12) lead the National League East by a healthy margin and the Rockies (22-13) are the surprise early leaders in the NL West.

But better than all of them are the Astros, who are off to the best start in franchise history following Wednesday’s 4-2 win over the Braves.

In a conversation with Yahoo Finance, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said Wednesday baseball may soon follow the NBA’s lead in calling for the legalization of gambling on sports, acknowledging that betting “can be a form of fan engagement, it can fuel the popularity of a sport.”

“There is this buzz out there in terms of people feeling that there may be an opportunity here for additional legalized sports betting,” he said. “We are reexamining our stance on gambling. It’s a conversation that’s ongoing with the owners.”

“Sports betting happens,” Manfred said. “Whether it’s legalized here or not, it’s happening out there. So I think the question for sports is really, ‘Are we better off in a world where we have a nice, strong, uniform, federal regulation of gambling that protects the integrity of sports, provides sports with the tools to ensure that there is integrity in the competition … Or are we better Cheap Jerseys China Paypal off closing our eyes to that and letting it go on as illegal gambling? And that’s a debatable point.”

Gawker block: Derek Jeter gets OK to build taller gate to foil looky-loos

Show’s over, folks. Time to move along.

The City of Tampa has given retired Yankees captain Derek Jeter permission to install a taller, opaque gate at his mansion to discourage uninvited visitors from Cheap Ireland Soccer Jerseys stopping in the exclusive Davis Islands neighborhood to take pictures and shoot videos, among other things, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Kyle Hendricks, who finished third in Cy Young voting last year after going 16.8 with a 2.13 ERA, will likely wrap up the three-game series with the Cardinals, with John Lackey then starting the fourth game of the year against the Brewers.

Lester, 33, started two games in the World Series and won the Babe Ruth Award for postseason MVP after going 3-1 in October with a 1.93 ERA and 30 strikeouts to six walks in 35 2/3 innings.

Arrieta, 30, has a no-hitter in each of the last two seasons and was the NL Cy Young Award winner in 2015.

“Not many groups have that luxury — we do,” Maddon said of having two ace pitchers, via MLB.com. “Jake, two years in a row, has done an outstanding job, so has Jon Lester. Of course, there’s the ascension of Kyle. It has to go to Jon Lester based on the body of work. We feel good about that. However we want to set up three, four, five will follow.”

Eddie Lacy gets a fat bonus from Seahawks if he can lose weight

Shortly after the Seahawks signed Eddie Lacy, a report came out about his weight being at 267 pounds, or 30 pounds heavier than he was a season ago.

This talk spread through NFL circles, and eventually Pete Carroll commented on it, saying he wants Lacy big but down closer to the 240 range. If Lacy is able to get down to Seattle’s preferred weight for him, then he can earn a solid bonus, according to multiple reports.

Cooks, 23, enters 2017 in the fourth year of his Saints’ rookie contract, a year in which he will earn $1.56 million in base salary. The Saints will still owe him roughly $1.1 million in bonus money and have till May 3 to exercise his fifth-year option for $8.5 million in 2018.

Ravens’ Kenneth Dixon suspended four games for PED policy violation

Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon will be suspended four games to start the 2017 season for a violation of the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy, the team announced Thursday.

In a statement, Dixon, a fourth-round draft pick by Baltimore in 2016, apologized and said he “mistakenly took a substance without the proper NFL medical exemption.”

“I accept full responsibility for my actions and their consequences,” he wrote. “I am truly sorry for the mistake I made and the distraction it causes. Moving forward, I remain committed to focusing on my offseason training, conditioning and game preparation so I can be an immediate impact player for the Ravens when my suspension is over.”

The Louisiana Tech product ran for ran for 382 yards and two touchdowns on 88 carries as a rookie.

The Ravens also announced the signing of free-agent running back Danny Woodhead.

Some teams were more aggressive than expected, landing veteran free agents to push them closer to contention or respectability. Others were careful with their pocketbooks and missed out on keeping their own key players while seeing competitors spend to get better.

A few positions got paid way too much, while several others didn’t get their deserved deals. That doesn’t even include the most shocking move, a trade by a Texas team that wasn’t Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys the Cowboys.

17 takeaways from Russell Westbrook’s tense postgame press conference

Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams gave a press conference yesterday after the Thunder lost to the Rockets in an exciting, close, and sloppy Game 4 during the first round of the NBA playoffs. Sorry, let me rephrase that: Steven Adams didn’t give much of a press conference at all, because when a reporter asked him a question, Russ stepped in and this happened:

Let’s walk through this and break it down, because the hot takes concerning this one minute and thirty-five seconds of #content are probably only going to heat up as Monday morning progresses. And, in reality, I don’t think it’s all that take-able. It’s just a series of events that illustrate a series of facts, and I think these are the facts.

Smith was a second-round pick, but he’s included because he was drafted to replace Mark Sanchez, who had struggled throughout his Jets career. A preseason injury to the incumbent allowed Smith to begin his career immediately in Week 1.

Smith had a pretty good rookie season for Jets standards, and a little improvement toward the end of the year had New York fans feeling optimistic. That wore off after Year 2, and the Jets eventually gave up on Smith and moved on.

The Chargers were patient with Rivers, and it paid off with a 14-2 record in his first full season as a starter. Other than two down seasons at the end of the Norv Turner area, he has thrived as efficient and durable, two of the most important elements for happy returns from a franchise QB.

This happened by a happy accident. The Steelers were about to stick with Tommy Maddox as their starting QB, but the veteran suffered a major elbow injury in Week 2. Roethlisberger NFL Jerseys Authentic hasn’t looked back since starting in Week 3 as a rookie.
