The absence of fanfare is just fine with both Rose and Wade.

“Most guys in my position don’t get drafted to such a high-caliber team like the Celtics, so it makes me work harder because I have to compete and earn everything,” he said.

As he talks, Tatum’s eyes are glued to Brown, who has returned to the floor for some shots following their one-on-one battles. The two were fast friends this summer, especially having already crossed paths during their high school days. Brown knows all about what Tatum is about to experience and is eager to help him along the way.

Brown, after riding the rookie roller coaster a year ago, is competing for a starting job this season. He speaks with a wisdom well beyond his mere 20 years, and that’s reflected when he calls Tatum “Kid” while praising the way Tatum approaches the game.

Dorsey was part of the package sent by San Francisco to Cleveland for quarterback Trent Dilfer in the 2006 offseason.

“[Rose] came in with no ego at all, just saying, ‘Coach, whatever you need me to do, and if you yell at me, cuss at me,'” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “I said, ‘I don’t do all that.’ But he said, ‘Whatever it is I can take it. Whatever you need me to do, I’m willing to do.’ And D-Wade has been pretty much the same. Coming in and knowing it’s about sacrifice. If you want to win a championship and have a chance to win a championship, you have to sacrifice. They understand that.”

Dwyane Wade secures Cleveland’s final starting roster spot, reuniting him with LeBron James in the starting lineup. The last time they linked up in that fashion, the pair, playing for Miami, made it to four straight Finals.

Derrick Rose admits that his mental approach in the past — not just his physical ailments — started to lead his career astray and says he is determined to get back on track with the Cleveland Cavaliers.ravens_008

Former Saints Super Bowl hero Tracy Porter Jersey arrested on drug, battery charges

Former Saints safety Tracy Porter, famous for a game-clinching interception and return for touchdown against the Colts in Super Bowl 44, was arrested Tuesday on drug and battery charges after a woman claimed he attacked her last week.
Game Shaq Lawson Jersey
According to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, the woman said Porter became physical with her during an argument in which he allegedly pushed her against a car and grabbed her around the face and neck, WWL TV reported.

I ran faster than that in college, Fournette, who played at LSU, told ESPN. It’s all about getting my legs back under me. … I ran, like, 23 mph in college, so [I’m] just trying to get my old speed back.
Game Myles Jack Jersey
On top of the speedy touchdown, Fournette tacked on another score and recorded 181 total yards in the Jaguars’ 30-9 upset win in Pittsburgh.

Fournette, who is 6-foot-1 and 228 pounds, ran a 4.51 at the NFL combine this past year. Usain Bolt, who many consider the world’s fastest man, ran at a speed of 27.7 mph during his world-record 100-meter sprint in 2009.

The Eagles went three-and-out and punted before the two-minute warning, but the Philadelphia defense held on the ensuing drive.

Newton, who was brilliant the last two weeks in road wins over the Patriots and Lions, was 28 of 52 for 239 yards with a touchdown and the three interceptions. He also ran for 71 yards and a touchdown as Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart, Fozzy Whittaker and Christian McCaffrey combined for just one rushing yard on 13 carries. McCaffrey did have 10 receptions for 56 yards, but a fourth-and-1 pass with 1:22 remaining skipped into him at midfield.

Sam Bradford Jersey has wear and tear; Teddy Bridgewater Jersey faces exam

An MRI performed Tuesday showed no new damage to the injured left knee of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford, according to team athletic trainer Eric Sugarman.

Bradford is suffering from what Sugarman termed wear and tear on the knee, but his status remains day to day.

It was not immediately clear whether Bradford is a candidate to start Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Backup Case Keenum would start if Bradford couldn’t.

Monday Night Football gave us our first look at the Dalvin Cook-less Vikings backfield this season. Though Latavius Murray took a major lead in the carry department early, it didn’t take long for super-athlete Jerick McKinnon to steal the show. McKinnon played 47 snaps and led the team in carries (16), rushing yards (95), receptions (six) and receiving yards (51). McKinnon, who ripped off a 58-yard touchdown run, likely has the edge in this backfield moving forward and should be under RB2 consideration against Green Bay this week. Murray touched the ball on 14 of his 22 snaps but managed only 43 yards. He should be on benches.
Elite Kids Rickard Rakell Jersey
Watkins’ massive ceiling makes him well worth a roster spot, but his lack of usage and the tough schedule make it hard to recommend plugging him into your lineup right now. The Rams’ play the red-hot Jaguars defense in Week 6.

Elite Kids Jason Kelce Jersey Roethlisberger does face a tough schedule during Weeks 14 to 16 (Baltimore, New England, Houston), which is the fantasy playoffs for many, but he certainly has a shot to provide QB1 value for a month or so leading up to that point. Keep streaming him.

Dickson has yet to score a touchdown this season, but he sits eighth in fantasy points at the position since Olsen has been out and is worth lineup consideration against the Eagles on Thursday.

Antonio Brown frustrated with Ben Roethlisberger Jersey, who ‘spearheaded’ anthem decision, report says

Charcandrick West Youth Jersey Yes, wide receiver Antonio Brown’s sideline tirade during the Steelers’ Week 4 win over the Ravens was a reaction to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger not throwing him the ball for what could have been a touchdown.

Kaepernick reportedly said he has remained silent about his desire to play to avoid causing a distraction. Kaepernick’s agent has reportedly been reaching out to all 32 teams to note his availability and the quarterback reportedly said the Tennessee Titans knew he wanted to work out for them last week.

Christian Folin Youth Jersey He was not among four quarterbacks invited for an audition, and the Titans signed Brandon Weeden.

La Canfora described Kaepernick’s daily workout, saying Kaepernick wakes up at 4 a.m. in New York City, gets a ride to New Jersey and does a multihour workout that includes more than 100 passes. He also works out in a gym for hours.

He advised Bradford to allow his knee to fully rest until it was no longer painful and then gradually resume activity. This is exactly what the quarterback has done, and so far, his knee appears to be responding well. The key, as Bradford told reporters Friday, was to see how it responded to multiple days of practice and multiple days of work, even though he acknowledged it may not be 100 percent until after the season is over. The good news is that it appears Bradford is nearing a return, but whether that will be on Monday night against the Bears may not be known until game time.

It’s impressive that Snead has managed to upgrade the talent surrounding his young quarterback without the benefit of high draft picks.

Tomlinson, who already was a two-time Pro Bowler with the Chargers by the time Sproles was drafted in the fourth round in 2005, knew immediately his team had picked up a special player regardless of height and weight.

“I watched Darren at Kansas State,” Tomlinson said, speaking to SN on behalf of the Peanut Bowl, a Texas high school football rivalry game he hosted last weekend. “Even though he was small in stature, when you look at his body type, he’s actually a really well put together guy, legs and built up top. When he first walked into the complex, I said, ‘Man this guy is put together pretty good.’

“And then you saw the skills he had on the field, how quick he was, how smart he was, catching the football and running routes, knowing defenses and stuff … I knew he had an opportunity to play a long time.”

It’s impressive that Snead has managed to upgrade the talent surrounding his young quarterback without the benefit of high draft picks. At wide receiver, he traded for a former high first-rounder in Sammy Watkins and added Robert Woods in free agency. Then he drafted a fine possession receiver in third-rounder Cooper Kupp. The trio has combined for 40 receptions this season.

Equally important were Snead’s free-agency additions that have solidified the offensive line. He brought in two seasoned vets in left tackle Andrew Whitworth and center John Sullivan.

Owners, many of whom had supported Trump and seven of whom had donated at least $1 million to him, felt that Lockhart had unnecessarily politicized the league’s response. One owner barked angrily at Lockhart, who declined to comment about the matter, echoing a sentiment that most of them — especially Jones — shared: Nobody wanted to engage in a political mud fight with the White House, even if “they were all pissed at the president,” a league source said.


Redskins’ Terrelle Pryor Jersey says Chiefs fan unleashed N-word from stands

Washington Redskins receiver Terrelle Pryor said via Instagram that he was called the N-word by a Chiefs fan, prompting him to use obscenities as he exited the field through the tunnel after Monday night’s game in Kansas City.

The postgame exchange was caught on video and replayed on, though mostly what is heard is someone shouting f— you. Pryor returned the shouts using similar language and flipped his middle finger toward the fan.

He then started at the person, raising his helmet, only to be restrained by Redskins strength and conditioning coach Chad Englehart. Pryor then continued to the locker room.

Authentic Youth Jason Taylor Jersey The consistency ratings weigh both how consistent and how start-worthy players have been in ESPN leagues in 2017.
Elite Youth Mikael Backlund Jersey Start%: The player’s start percentage, which shows how often he earned your start in an ESPN standard PPR (points per reception) league. This is his number of Starts — those defined below — divided by his number of scheduled team games.

CR: The player’s consistency rating, which is calculated as his weekly standard deviation divided by his PPR fantasy points per game average. This is meant to identify the players who were most consistently close to their weekly averages. The lower the number, the more consistent the player. Again, lower numbers are better.

nPPR%: The player’s start percentage using non-PPR scoring, using ESPN’s standard scoring settings without any points per reception.

Odell Beckham Jr. Jersey says peeing-dog celebration was a response to Donald Trump

Odell Beckham Jr. celebrated his first touchdown on Sunday by pretending to pee like a dog.

Some people interpreted Beckham’s celebration as a response to comments made by Donald Trump last Friday where he called protesting players “sons of bitches.” That theory was fueled when, after the game, Beckham’s reasoning for the act was: “I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog.”

That theory was then confirmed on Monday when Beckham engaged with a Twitter user saying his celebration was a response to Trump.
Authentic Kids Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey
Shortly after Beckham’s first touchdown catch, he came right back and scored again. This time offered a more serious approach by raising his fist up in the air.
Allen Hurns Mens Jersey
The Giants looked like a team that had battled to save its season, only to miss out to a 61-yard field goal. Matthew Stafford looked to have launched yet another dramatic fourth-quarter comeback and pushed his Lions to 3-0, only to be stopped inches short of the end zone. The Patriots saved a week of think pieces with a magical drive to beat the Texans, who might actually have beaten themselves.

Everyone has a different definition of exciting, but one useful measure is what ESPN’s Brian Burke refers to as the Excitement Index, which is simply the sum of all the changes in a win expectancy chart throughout the game. This is the exact sort of model that rewards the crazy late-game changes that moved the needle by as much as 78 percent in Week 3. The average 1 p.m. ET game since 2005, when RedZone made its way into our hearts, had a typical Excitement Index of 3.7 points. The most exciting contest was the 37-34 overtime game played between the Bears and Lions in 2015, which featured several lead changes in the fourth quarter and an eventual game-winning field goal in overtime.

Rex Burkhead Jersey had scored the most recent touchdown for the Patriots AND the Bengals.

Elite Mens Ryan Callahan Jersey The Cowboys’ secondary is young and lost its most veteran player, Orlando Scandrick, to an injury in the second half. And yet, Manning averaged just 5.8 yards per throw and got no help. Not from new Giants receiver Brandon Marshall, who almost went catchless until a last-minute reception. Not from the running game, which gained just 35 yards. And certainly not from the offensive line, which gave up three sacks and had Manning tap dancing all night.

It’s still unclear if Beckham will be ready to go for the Giants’ next game, a Monday Night Football clash with the Detroit Lions. His status has been the same ever since he injured his ankle in the team’s second preseason game. “Day-to-day for OBJ” has such a familiar ring to it by now, it might as well be a presidential slogan. But it is clear the Giants, and Manning in particular, need their spark plug back.

Panic index: “OBJ is gonna play” will be the Giants’ new slogan soon enough, if not this week then before too long. Manning will get his favorite target back, and Marshall, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram, etc. should be able to get open more easily.

Ultimately, Dalton’s $16.2-$17.7 million cap hits over the next three seasons aren’t that expensive. Fourteen different quarterbacks count at least $18 million against the salary cap in 2017.
Branden Albert Mens Jersey
But the bigger question is whether Dalton can be the guy that leads the Bengals offense to a Super Bowl victory. After 95 starts, the answer sure looks like a resounding no.

Everyone who missed seeing Lovie Smith at the pirate ship stadium in Tampa: Tune in Friday night!

The Illinois Fighting Illini will take on the No. 22 USF Bulls at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Friday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. This is a homecoming of sorts for Fighting Illini head coach Lovie Smith, who was the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2014-15 before he was fired after compiling an 8-24 overall record:

Elliott’s lawsuit against the NFL is a labor law issue, and the court must establish whether or not Goodell acted appropriately in issuing this suspension. In his decision granting the injunction, Mazzant acknowledged that the league may not have upheld its own credible evidence standard in Elliott’s case. The outcome of this case could shape Goodell’s authority in the future.

Does the NFL have other options? Since Mazzant was the judge who issued the injunction, it was unlikely he was going to overturn his own ruling. The NFL is appealing to a higher court, according to Wallach.

“The key to the game was our defense. If they play like that (for the rest of the season), we’ll be tough to beat,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said after the season-opening win.

The Falcons’ new offensive coordinator, Steve Sarkisian, is still getting his feet wet in the NFL and working out how best to use an offense that features the likes of Julio Jones and Tevin Coleman. With talent in abundance, Sarkisian will need to work out when best to use each offensive weapon, and he certainly needs to improve on his Week 1 play calling.

animatronic replica of Dolphins star Jason Taylor Jersey made its presence known in Trafalgar Square to promote the game.

Never underestimate how grateful fans are to get real games, said Waller, who was born in South Africa to British parents. Just the fact a team was willing to give up a home game to go to the UK to play, that meant a lot to fans. These are smart fans. They’re smart fans of American football, soccer, rugby. They know there are good games and less good games, but you don’t stop loving a sport or a team because a game doesn’t quite live up to expectations.

Would you rather have a bad game or no game at all? Ninety-nine percent would say a bad game.

Redskins running back Rob Kelley hasn’t been ruled out for Washington’s Week 3 game against the Raiders after suffering a rib cartilage injury in Sunday’s win over the Rams.
This latest move gives Cravens more time to figure out if he wants to play again. It also removes the possibility that had he returned, he could opt to leave again.

In a statement Monday, the team said, We sincerely hope that Su’a uses this time away from the club to reflect upon whether or not he’d like to resume his career in the National Football League in 2018.

Cravens has three more years on his contract with the Redskins. If he returns, the team still controls his rights for that length of time.
