Lions schedule 2018: Detroit must take advantage of favorable road slate

The Lions’ 2018 schedule features a tour of the AFC East and NFC South in Matt Patricia’s first season as head coach in Detroit.

The Lions have enjoyed winning seasons in three of the last four years, and the franchise hasn’t finished last in the NFC North since 2012. This season is another chance for Matthew Stafford to lead the franchise into the postseason.

Kraft added, The Globe noted, that it doesn’t sound as if Brady will practice with the Patriots until the minicamp June 5-7, which means he will miss four of the Patriots’ OTAs.

Margaret Sherman has participated in the Rutgers football program’s Lady Knight event for the past four years, learning X’s and O’s and running through the same sort of drills the players experience year-round.

This is the one position group that every team can feel good about heading into the 2018 season: Arizona Cardinals: defensive end The big question for the Cardinals is how smooth the transition to a 4-3 defense will be under new head coach Steve Wilks.

Frazier said he watches video of his swing every day to catch flaws.

I’m trying to limit that last-second hitch, Frazier said. “I feel like that has been what’s caused me to miss balls or swing through some pitches. I still do it, but it’s minute. But if everything is in sync, it’s pretty good.”

Arian Foster says of NFL owner’s ‘inmates’ comment: ‘That’s how they view the players’

Arian Foster was not surprised when he heard Houston Texans owner Bob McNair had likened NFL players to inmates, apologized and then wished he hadn’t.

Dallas could make another run at a deal, especially if a potential Thomas training camp holdout becomes lengthy and Seattle becomes satisfied with younger, cheaper replacements at safety.

Another element is the public spat Thomas had with Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner after a blowout loss to the Rams late last season. Thomas made the comment that Wagner should not have played with an injured hamstring that limited him, and Wagner tweeted in response, “E-keep my name out yo mouth. Stop being jealous of other people’s success.” Team execs never like to see such verbal in-fighting among their top players.

The 2018 NFL Draft was held at the Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium last month, marking the first time that the event took place at an NFL stadium. However, ESPN’s report didn’t specify if the draft would be held at Nissan Stadium, the Titans’ home.

The Seahawks have a few options with Thomas. They could give him the extension he seeks, and the contract surely would exceed that of the NFL’s current highest-paid safety in Kansas City’s Eric Berry at $13 million per year. Seattle also could trade Thomas.

Or the Seahawks could simply hold the line and make Thomas play out the last year of his deal knowing he’s unlikely to sit out the upcoming regular season. If he were to sit out, Thomas would forfeit his $8.5 million base salary and open the door for Seattle to possibly come after a portion of the $9.5 million signing bonus he received on his latest extension. Plus, if Thomas plays out his deal, the team can then decide whether to franchise tag him, re-sign him or send him packing in a sign-and-trade deal.ravens_153

Stephon Gilmore “more comfortable” in second year with Patriots

At this time last year, Stephon Gilmore was the new guy in the Patriots cornerback group and it took some time before he settled into his role with his new team.

Gilmore eventually found his footing after a heavily scrutinized start to the year and scrutiny at cornerback switched to Malcolm Butler‘s Super Bowl benching. That benching left Gilmore as the top cornerback on defense, which is a position he’s set to get more experience with this year now that Butler is in Tennessee.

The Bills have taken a bit of a dip in national perception after breaking a 17-year playoff drought.

“We’re not going to rush him, but you know if he somehow wins the job, he wins it,” Beane said, via NewYorkUpstate.com. “There’s other players out there. There will be 52 other players out there and if they see that he’s clearly the best, I don’t think we could do that. We wouldn’t do that at any other position, so we’ll let it go. But he’s got a lot of catching up to do, that’s the thing.”

McCarron and Peterman have only been working in the building with new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll for a couple of weeks, so they aren’t miles ahead of Allen when it comes to this specific system. Beane also noted ways Allen is ahead of some other rookie quarterbacks, namely that he played in a pro style offense as well as run the run-pass options that have become popular of late.

While no sexual favors were involved, some of the cheerleaders believed that the squad was “pimping us out.” The team denies the allegations.

“The Redskins’ cheerleader program is one of the NFL’s premier teams in participation, professionalism, and community service,” the organization said in a statement to the Times. “Each Redskin cheerleader is contractually protected to ensure a safe and constructive environment.

“I was not forcing anyone to go at all,” Stephanie Jojokian, the squad’s director and choreographer, said regarding the night club visit. “I’m the mama bear, and I really look out for everybody, not just the cheerleaders. It’s a big family. We respect each other and our craft. It’s such a supportive environment for these ladies.”broncos_027_4af13736b728ec2d-180x180

Colts trade Henry Anderson to the Jets

The Colts want more lottery tickets, and are willing to trade spare parts for them.

The Colts annouced they had dealt defensive lineman Henry Anderson to the Jets in exchange for a seventh-round pick (235th overall).

Anderson, a former third-round pick, has been plagued by injuries throughout his three years. From an ACL tear as a rookie to last year’s laryngeal fracture. He’s played in 29 of a possible 48 games.

He was a better fit in their old 3-4 than their new 4-3 defense, and had lost weight this offseason to fit in better. Now, he’ll have a chance at a fresh start in a more familiar scheme.

Kaepernick filed his grievance last October, alleging team owners are conspiring to keep him out of the league as a result of his protests and social advocacy.

As part of the case, Kaepernick and his attorneys have deposed a number of NFL and team officials. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell testified in April along with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and NFL Executive Vice President Troy Vincent.

They actually traded up to the 149th pick to take Australian punter Michael Dickson with the 149th pick. They dealt a seventh-rounder (226) to Denver to move up seven spots for the privilege.

Dickson was the highest-rated punter in the draft, after a standout career at Texas. He was actually the MVP of last year’s Texas Bowl, which may say more about the Texas Bowl than Dickson himself.

He won the Ray Guy Award as the nation’s best punter, after averaging 47.4 yards gross and 44.2 net last year.

His addition is probably not a good sign for veteran punter Jon Ryan, who had two years left on a four-year, $10 million contract and is scheduled to make $2.6 million this year.broncos_070_4eb21f519173412d-180x180

Chris Ballard: Andrew Luck using doubt as motivation

The Colts have been steadfast about their confidence in quarterback Andrew Luck‘s return to action and return to form this season, but his extended layoff with a right shoulder injury has not created the same feeling in other corners of the football world.

That’s not a secret to the Colts or to Luck and General Manager Chris Ballard thinks those doubts will prove to be a good thing for the quarterback.

Johnny Manziel recently said that in 2015, when McCown became his teammate with the Cleveland Browns, the elder QB offered to tutor Manziel on the ins and outs of being an NFL quarterback, but McCown seems to be the exception rather than the rule.

Look at how Ben Roethlisberger has publicly reacted to the Pittsburgh Steelers drafting Mason Rudolph, and recall the stories of how Brett Favre reacted when the Packers drafted Aaron Rodgers there are only 32 NFL starting quarterback jobs on the planet, and the majority of guys aren’t just going to hand them over to someone else.

General Manager John Lynch, who traded a 2019 fifth-round pick to the Lions for Tomlinson last year, said on KNBR that he’d like to work out a deal that keeps Tomlinson with the team.

“Those options are tricky deals … I actually pulled Laken in here yesterday and had a great talk with him — we’re gonna work towards making Laken a part of us for the long-term future,” Lynch said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. “The numbers are different at each position. Offensive guard was a little skewed because they include all offensive lineman — tackles get paid a lot so that number was extremely high. But we’ve already been talking with Laken’s guys about trying to make something happen, and we’ll see if that goes into next year.”

Tomlinson started 15 games at left guard for the 49ers last year.

She expected it to be the height of her dance career and push her to improve her technique.

But once she made the team, the reality was much different.broncos_131_a52cec69b93f017c-180x180

Kurt Warner, now 47, considered returning to the NFL for 2018 season

Kurt Warner, now 47, considered returning to the NFL for 2018 season More At 47, most athletes are well into their twilight period and a long way removed from playing professional sports, others consider returning despite their age. Kurt Warner falls into the latter category. The 1999 Superbowl MVP admitted that he considered returning to the NFL for the 2018 season. According to Frank Schwab of Yahoo Sports, Warner gave serious consideration to an unlikely return, stating: ‘I was actually ready to, for this coming season, I actually talked to a coach and my wife said, Go for it, I think it would be great. So I actually talked to a coach about possibly doing it if they needed someone, but then they went out and signed somebody. I don’t think they thought I was serious.

The union announced Monday that it filed its grievance and was seeking an arbitrator to hear the case. Kaepernick deposed several league owners and executives, including Commissioner Roger Goodell, in his grievance. Reid is using the same attorneys as Kaepernick. When NFL owners met in March, they didn’t hold lengthy discussions on anthem protocol. But they are expected to do so at their spring meetings in Atlanta on May 21-22.

His suspension and contract dispute only exacerbate that:

Finding a trade partner for a suspended player could be tough, but Ingram has been one of the most consistently productive running backs in the NFL for a long time. A team may be willing to take him even if it means he sits for the first month. And even if it doesn’t happen soon, he could also be a candidate for a midseason deal before the October trade deadline.

It’s hard to get a big pay day at running back and even harder with age 30 approaching, but Ingram can still land another decent contract. His suspension just makes it even more unlikely that it’ll be the Saints making the offer.

A serious conversation never surfaced, however, which Warner acknowledged was for the best.

My biggest concern was screwing it up, Warner conceded. Even if expectations weren’t high, they would’ve been for me…. If I was the reason they lost, that would’ve been hard for me to handle.sharks-022

Giants’ Landon Collins: ‘I’ll be back before for training camp’

Right now, I’m in a good mindset, Collins said. I’m taking it day-by-day. I’ve got another 6-7 weeks before it fully heals. I’ll be back before training camp.

Collins and former Giants great Brandon Jacobs are teaming up for a second annual celebrity softball game to benefit The Tom Coughlin Jay Fund. The game will be held at 7 p.m. June 9 at Palisades Credit Union Park in Ponoma, N.Y.

Earlier in the day, Field Yates of ESPN reported that the Lions and Spence agreed to a reworked contract.According to Yates, this move will reduce Spence’s 2018 base salary from $3.15 million to $2.575 million, but still gives him a chance to earn some of that money back.

There is now the potential for (a) round of showers to move through during Saturday, AccuWeather Meteorologist Brian Thompson told Accuweather.com. With the potential of increasing showers, the odds of a fast track are diminishing, and if showers linger into the afternoon, the track could be muddy or sloppy for the Derby. There is still the potential for the rain to mostly stay to the east, but recent trends don’t look promising.

While Friday’s forecast calls for damp conditions, Saturday is expected to bring a couple of showers throughout the day in Louisville, Ky. With temperatures hovering in the low 70s, rain is predicted for both the 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern hours.

Kaepernick, who filed a collusion grievance against the NFL and its 32 teams, has been a free agent since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017.

The 30-year-old reportedly drew interest from the Seattle Seahawks last month, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the team decided to nix a meeting with him after he declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem next season.

While Kaepernick has continued to train for a return to the gridiron, he’s also been an activist during his time away from the game. In January, he completed a $1 million pledge to help organizations in oppressed communities.

Kaepernick also donated 100 percent of the proceeds from his 2016 jersey sales to charity.tigers_074-115x115
