Seahawks sign veteran guard Jahri Evans

The Seattle Seahawks announced Saturday that they signed guard Jahri Evans. The veteran lineman, who will turn 33 in late August, refused to take a pay cut and was released by the New Orleans Saints in early February.

“I have to say that $2,000 signing Terrell McClain Jersey bonus I got didn’t last long, but I ended up gaining a lot more than money,” Dungy said.

His head coach in Pittsburgh, Chuck Noll, taught players about life being about more than football. It was a value Dungy would carry with him and apply to his life as a coach. His Steelers teammate, Donnie Shell, took Dungy under his wing and taught him so much as he converted from to Tony Dorsett Jersey the safety position, but Shell also helped Dungy learn about being a Christian and a husband.

His first head coaching job came in 1996 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the following season, the team broke a long playoff drought.

“We made the playoffs for the first time in 15 years, and the Bucs fans went crazy over their team,” Dungy said. “And those fans remain special to me to this day.”

Next up for Dungy was Indianapolis, where his team would face off against Lovie Smith’s Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI and win.

“We had a lot of fun over those next seven years, highlighted by that Super Bowl XLI victory,” Dungy said.

Dungy thanked Colts owner Jim Irsay and general manager Bill Polian for their warm welcome and making Indianapolis feel like home for him and his family.

“I’d like to thank you big time, Jim and Bill and the Colts’ fans,” Dungy said. “You made us feel like native Hoosiers, and our family loves you.”

Of course, Dungy has coached a number of talented players, including fellow 2016 Hall of Fame inductee Marvin Harrison. Many of his former players were on hand to support him, and Dungy asked them to stand and be recognized.

“You taught us how to be teammates and you taught us how to be men, but the most important thing is you taught us about fatherhood,” Harrison said of Dungy. “I think that’s more important than anything that a head coach or any coach could ever tell his players, so I want to thank you for that.”

Seattle CB Jeremy Lane stands behind Colin Kaepernick and sits during national anthem

As the nation continues to debate the validity and wisdom of Colin Kaepernick’s decision to remain seated during the national anthem, other players are also choosing to not stand. On Thursday night, before Haloti Ngata Jersey Seattle prepared to face the Raiders in Oakland, Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane remained seated on the bench during the anthem.

“I wasn’t trying to say anything. Just standing behind Kaepernick,” Lane said following the game.

He said that he didn’t have Jake Rudock Jersey relationship with Kaepernick, but “I just like what he’s doing.”

Lane also will continue to the protest, saying he will “keep on doing it until I feel like justice is being served.”

Carson Wentz was “lying in the middle of a cornfield, hunting” when he got the call to tell him he was the Eagles starter

— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 5, 2016
The Eagles’ quarterback depth chart was shaken up Saturday when they traded Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for two draft picks –– including a 2017 first-round selection. It was a bizarre offseason for Bradford, who signed a two-year, $36 million extension with $22 million guaranteed less than 10 days before the Eagles inked Chase Daniel to a three-year deal. Philly then traded a bevy of draft picks, including their 2016 and 2017 first round selections, to move up and draft Wentz.

Bradford, 28, reportedly demanded a trade after Wentz was drafted and missed two weeks of voluntary workouts. But he ended the saddest holdout ever in early May, pledging his commitment to the organization.

When Bradford was dealt, it was assumed Daniel would take over the No. 1 job. According to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, the 29-year-old veteran was “extremely upset” last weekend when he was first informed of the decision to start Wentz. Daniel has only started two games in six NFL seasons, completing 50 of 77 passes for 464 yards and one touchdown as well as one interception. He played under Doug Pederson for three years while he was the offensive coordinator in Kansas City.

The Eagles’ sudden change of heart isn’t all that surprising, given the movement towards starting young quarterbacks in their rookie seasons. Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in last year’s draft, both started Week 1.

Todd Gurley and Tavon Austin didn’t play last night, but Goff’s struggles have come with the starters as well as the backups. He finished the preseason 22 for 49 with a 45 percent completion rate, 232 yards, a woeful 4.7 yards per attempt, two touchdowns, two interceptions and a 55.8 rating.

But don’t worry, said Fisher.

Josh McCown briefly leaves Ravens game with left shoulder injury

Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown left Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens with a left shoulder injury. McCown left the game late in the first quarter and Kyle Emanuel Jersey departed for the locker room under his own power. Immediately after he left the field, Cody Kessler began warming up.

Brees believes he can play for a few more years in the league and if that turns out to be the case, he could wind up ending his career with more yards than any other quarterback. By LaDainian Tomlinson Jersey passing Marino, Brees moved into third all-time in NFL history. He is still quite far from Brett Favre (71,838) in second and Peyton Manning (71,940) in first. Brees started off his 16th season in the league on a heater, torching the Oakland Raiders for 423 yards and four touchdowns in a 35-34 loss.

But Brees has eclipsed 5,000 yards in a season four times in his career, and has put up at least 4,800 yards twice more on top of that. He only needs to go for a couple more seasons to pass both Favre and Manning to finish at the top of the NFL, but of course, a lot can happen to an aging quarterback in that time.

Brees signed a contract extension with the Saints that included $44 million in guarantees prior to the regular season opener. It will only keep him with the team through 2017 but strictly speaking, those two years at his normal rate put him right in the range of Favre and Manning.

A Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Brees has been named to nine Pro Bowls and has been an All-Pro player four times, three of them on the first team. He has been named the NFL Offensive Player of the Year twice and has been the league’s passing yardage leader six times and passing touchdowns leader four times.

Demaryius Thomas: The Broncos are expecting Thomas to play against the Indianapolis Colts despite suffering a hip injury in the season-opener against the Carolina Panthers. The star wideout was reportedly grabbing his hip and “grimacing” during practice this week.

Jakub Voracek’s goal 10 seconds into overtime

Winnipeg, MB – Jakub Voracek’s goal 10 seconds into overtime finished off a furious comeback as the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Winnipeg Jets, 4, on. Giroux pressured DeMarcus Cousins Jersey Byfuglien on the forecheck and Voracek was there to take the loose puck and emerge from behind the net to beat Ondrej Pavelec with a quick wrister for the win. Voracek continued his frenetic scoring pace with two goals and Lecavalier’s second goal of the night tied the game late regulation for the Flyers, who were coming off a 7 win over Toronto on Saturday. Zepp stopped 25-of-28 shots his NHL debut. The 33-year-old became the oldest NHL netminder to win his first career start since 41-year-old Lehman 1926. I thought the third we really dug and started to compete, Flyers head coach Jason Thompson Jersey Berube said. I thought really handled himself well. Halischuk, Mathieu Perreault and Byfuglien all lit the lamp for the Jets, who had their two-game winning streak come to end. Pavelec made 19 stops defeat. We stopped making simple plays. It’s not that we couldn’t make simple plays, we stopped trying to make simple plays, Jets coach said. The Flyers began their comeback just over six minutes into the final stanza. Streit faked a shot, skated across the slot and had his wrister deflected by Lecavalier past Pavelec. Winnipeg won a defensive zone faceoff, but VandeVelde charged across the circle and dove to send a pass to Lecavalier, who cooly gathered the puck and sent a shot through the legs of Pavelec to tie the game with 3 to play and send the game into overtime. Philadelphia wasted no time getting on the board. Racing into the offensive zone on a 2-on-1, Giroux sent a saucer pass to Voracek, who wristed a shot past Pavelec just 46 seconds into the contest. Winnipeg responded with two goals a span of 55 seconds. Halischuk took a drop pass from Evander Kane and fired a shot from the high slot that beat Zepp for a tied game 6 into the first. Byfuglien moved from the right boards, made a power move towards the crease and wristed the puck top shelf over a stationary Zepp for a 2 lead. at 7. The Jets added to their lead with 8 left the middle stanza. The rebound of Scheifele’s shot squirted to the right side of the net, where Perreault slipped the puck past the goal line for a 3 lead. Scheifele had the chance to make it a three-goal game with 25 seconds to play, but Zepp extended his right leg to deny the Winnipeg forward and keep the Flyers the game. Philadelphia nearly got within a goal as VandeVelde’s one-timer deflected off Pavelec’s glove before clanging off the crossbar and the post less than two minutes into the third. Game Notes Zepp became the oldest goaltender to make his Flyer debut at age 33, the previous record was held by Neil Little, who did so at age 30 on March 28… Voracek leads the league with 44 points, two ahead of ‘ Seguin… Halischuk ended a 27-game goalless drought with his first goal of the… Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo missed the game after he left Saturday’s game against Toronto with upper-body injury… Perreault extended his point streak to seven… Lecavalier fired a game-high five shots on net.

The Cougars beat 3 and 8 to improve to 11 overall and 6 the MCC. the first game, Arbor scored all the runs it needed the second inning.

Blanco drove three runs with three hits, including two doubles, and Justin Forster and Brown each added two hits for Arbor. We pitched it very well and again played really good defense, Arbor coach Riggleman said of his team, which has committed just one error its last six. We had some timely hitting and we’ve been working on that, but it wasn’t easy day to play. There was a lot of bite the wind. Blanco picked up the win on the mound the first game, and Ferris picked up his third win of the the second game with seven strikeouts. The Cougars next play a doubleheader at 4 p.m. Thursday at Siena Heights before returning to MCC play with a doubleheader Saturday at.

Ludicrous doesn’t even begin to describe it

Menu To hear some people baseball talk, they have to hold a benefit to make sure has enough left his bank account for retirement. All right, there isn’t. would have to spend money like Mike his heyday to burn through the $120 million the Phillies Ali Marpet Jersey pay him over the next five years. Still, the buzz seemed more about what he turned down from the New Yankees than the contract with the Phillies that guarantees he be incredibly for a time to come. The talk be louder because the guy who just left the Phillies grabbed every dollar he could to join a losing team. Argue Werth’s talents all you want, but there’s no way he is worth $126 million, regardless of how ludicrous baseball contracts have gotten. And ludicrous they are. The numbers are staggering we might as well be talking about Monopoly money as the real thing. And now is being held up by some as a shining example of someone not motivated by greed. This, after signing his name to the bottom of a contract that pay him average of $24 million a year. To throw a baseball.

Ludicrous doesn’t even begin to describe it. was Philadelphia on Wednesday explaining what he plans to do for the Phillies for that kind of money. He wasn’t specific, but here’s hoping that Phillies fans get more than the 12 wins he managed to scratch together for two teams last year. I was on the phone to the Save the Children Connecticut, wondering what that kind of money could do for them. It is the giving, of course, and 10 people have contributed to their current Gifts of campaign. They gave average of $52, which doesn’t sound like much the universe. But when $40 buys malaria tents for four and $50 pays for basic tools for health care workers impoverished countries, it can go a way.

For $120 you can bring a community a bicycle, said Loehr, vice president of resource development for Save the Children. That’s their ambulance, how they transport sick children from remote villages to health clinics. So what could ‘s money do? Well, let’s count the ways. For what make to pitch one game, the – which is active Alterraun Verner Jersey 120 countries – could help save the lives of 10 malnourished children by providing them with specially formulated peanut paste for eight weeks they gain weight and get stronger. For what he be paid to pitch just one inning, the could buy 4 newborn care packages to help prevent infants from dying within the first 24 hours of birth. For the money makes to get one out, a complete school could be built Mali, a country Western Africa that is one of the poorest the world. Each school can be built for $42 including three classrooms, latrines for boys and girls, and books. We can educate a girl for entire year for $65, Loehr said. It takes little to be able to bring education to the world’s poorest children.

Spend ‘s money closer to home and the left-behind $30 million could provide healthy snacks for a half million kids living poverty the United States. I’m not picking on, who is simply the latest poster player for what ails sports. It’s a seller’s market baseball and anyone who can sell themselves for $120 million certainly has the right to do. But I’m also not going to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize for leaving behind a pile of money. His salary is still far out of whack with that of paying fans, even had to acknowledge that much. It’s plenty of money, he said. When you hit a certain point, enough is enough. On that, at least, we can agree. ____ Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Deflated balls are not the reason has enjoyed such a phenomenal career

If cheating did take place then the Patriots must be punished, regardless of the fact that their offence occurred a lopsided game. But equally we should not lose perspective. Deflated balls are not the reason has enjoyed such a phenomenal career. He is extraordinary player and perhaps even more extraordinary personality. He did not get here because he was blessed with greater physical tools than most other NFL quarterbacks but because he worked obsessively to make himself better than all of them. He got lucky, too, by landing with Belichick New England. ‘s legacy forever be intertwined with that of his head coach, whose own status as one of the greatest coaches of all time was consolidated on night.

I don’t like snapping the Chris Clemons Jersey ball when I think there is going to be a bad play, said at his final media session before the game last week. He knows how fortunate he has been to work with a coach who does not put him that position all that often. Neither was interested talking about legacies on evening. Those are conversations to be had at the end of a career, and has made it clear that he intends to play on for a while yet. the sublime silence of the Patriots’ winning locker room, the quarterback was most likely already thinking about what he and his team could do to make sure they stay on top again next year.

Greg Cosell’s Week 2 review: Sam Bradford was simply outstanding

The Minnesota Vikings traded for Sam Bradford and after about two weeks with the team — I’m guessing he had seven practices at most — they decided to start him against the Green Bay Packers.

And Bradford was outstanding.

LeGarrette Blount: He’s on pace for 408 carries, and while that will regress moving forward, expect another heavy workload in Week 3 with New England set to start either Jacoby Brissett or a hobbled Jimmy Garoppolo. Blount still offers zero as a receiver, but there’s 10-12 touchdown upside as the lead back in this offense, and his ADP didn’t come close to reflecting that.

Phillip Dorsett: If Donte Moncrief were to miss time with his shoulder injury, Dorsett becomes an immediate WR2 for fantasy purposes, especially in Week 3, as the Chargers/Colts over/under is 52 points. Dorsett is owned in just 42% of Yahoo leagues, and he could be a major difference maker should he enter Indy’s starting lineup.

“They shot and killed a man and walked around like it wasn’t a human being,” Kapernick told the San Francisco Chronicle. “People are being killed and not even being treated as human beings. No one went and checked on him, no one tried to resuscitate him. Nothing. They walked around, went about their business and made up lies to cover up the murder they just committed. That’s not right and they should be in prison for that.”

Kaepernick isn’t just kneeling during the anthem, he is speaking out about his cause and also donating to it. He pledged to give $1 million to different organizations, and told reporters on Tuesday he will give $100,000 per month for 10 months and a website will track which organizations his donations go to.

Here are other overreactions following Week 2:

OVERREACTION: The Browns are going 0-16. They couldn’t even win after taking a 20-0 lead at home against Baltimore.

REALISTIC REACTION: This will lead the list until Cleveland wins a game – in 2016 or 2017.

Texans DE J.J. Watt doesn’t plan to play any differently after surgery

HOUSTON — Though Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is recovering from back surgery, he insists nothing will change about the way he plays this season.

“I don’t think you are going to see any difference in games,” Watt said. “You wouldn’t notice anything different on game day and how I approach it. I am going to try and play every single play. I am going to play as hard as I possibly can.”

But though he will play just as hard, Watt said he will train smarter. “Where the change is going to come is in the offseason workouts, in the practice week and how I structure it and how I handle it,” Watt said. “I’ve gotten smarter. I’ve learned more about how to deal with my body and I’ve learned that I can’t just keep pounding, pounding, pounding and grinding through everything.

“I need to be smarter about what I do. I have a good plan in place now. I feel really good. Obviously, I have fresh legs right now. I’m going to carry this through the season.”

Watt, who is expected to play in the season opener Sunday against the Chicago Bears, said he feels like he can do “anything and everything” he is asked to do. “I feel no limitations whatsoever,” Watt said. “My body feels a lot better than it did the whole second half of last year. I’m a guy that likes to play every play. I’m a guy that likes to go out there and do whatever I can to help the team win. If they let me do that, great. If they put a play count on me, I’ll fight it as hard as I can.”

The turning point came during Super Bowl week in San Francisco, Watt said. Watt had been having a hard time getting out of bed and moving around. Watt said he and the Texans’ coordinator of rehabilitation, Roland Ramirez, had been working on an aggressive approach to his rehab, but he was not seeing a lot of progress.

“Ramirez and I had been working on something for a little while, and we’d been trying this method out and it really wasn’t showing a lot of results,” Watt said. “And one morning I woke up and all of a sudden, one thing I hadn’t been able to do since the surgery was lift my right leg straight up in the air. … And that morning I did it. I called him right away and sent him a video and I was like, ‘look.’ And so then I got up and tried some other stuff, and I actually did up-downs in the room, right there and I sent him a video of it. And I was like, dude, it worked.

“Everything that we did worked. And from that point forward, as soon as you get that little bit of light, it’s full steam ahead, and that’s what’s awesome.”

Watt had a second surgery in July to repair a herniated disk in his back. Watt said after going through that first surgery in January, the second procedure was much easier to get through.

Colts’ Vontae Davis week-to-week with right ankle sprain

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — If Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman gets an extra step on a cornerback for a touchdown catch, it could be the result of dropping some pounds this offseason.

The lost weight didn’t come from a diet or increased exercise. It was a haircut.

The Colts plan to work out cornerback Antonio Cromartie, an NFL source said, confirming a report by the Indianapolis Star.

Cromartie was released by the New York Jets earlier this offseason, ending his return to the franchise after just one season.

Cromartie, 32, struggled in 2015, allowing a team-high seven touchdown passes, according to Pro Football Focus. He acknowledged at midseason that he wasn’t playing up to his standard.

In 15 games, Cromartie failed to record a single interception for the first time since his rookie season with the San Diego Chargers, in 2006. He made 26 solo tackles and had one fumble recovery. He also was the Jets’ leading kickoff returner, averaging 25.1 yards per return.

The wedding planner for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and singer Ciara said the couple initially planned to get married in North Carolina but changed locations because of the state’s transgender bathroom law.

“I did the whole thing — three times,” wedding planner Mindy Weiss told The Knot. “They were first getting married in North Carolina, but they called it off due to the transgender bathroom laws. But it was really done.”

Wilson and Ciara were then going to move the wedding to Paris, but it was Fashion Week. They ended up getting married in London.

Wilson spoke last month about the responsibility of athletes to promote social change.

“Well, I think we all have a responsibility,” he said. “It’s not just on athletes, it’s not just on coaches, it’s not just on anybody in particular. It’s on all of us. I think ultimately it comes down to love and appreciating one another and respect for one another.

“It’s an appreciation for society, an appreciation for the country we live in, an appreciation for the towns and cities that we live in. Ultimately, it comes down to all of us to make sure we appreciate one another.”
