Pete Carroll agrees to extension with Seahawks through 2019

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has agreed a contract extension through 2019, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Just two days earlier, the team signed general manager John Schneider to a new five-year extension.

Team owner Paul Allen confirm the signing on Tuesday night:

@Seahawks Thrilled to announce we have Authentic Kevin Pierre-Louis Jersey reached an extension with Super Bowl winning coach @PeteCarroll ! #GoHawks

— Paul Allen (@PaulGAllen) July 27, 2016
Carroll has found plenty of success in his third stint as an NFL head coach, but his contract was set to expire after the 2016 season. With this extension, the Seahawks guarantee Carroll will be around for a few more seasons. Carroll, who is the oldest coach in the league, will turn 65 in September and has been a coach at various levels since the 1970s.

He isn’t a new player, but training camp will Authentic Luke Willson Jersey be important for Chicago’s 2015 first-round pick, Kevin White. He’s a receiving threat that Jay Cutler desperately needs, and he’s one of the biggest names to watch for the Bears after he missed all of his rookie season due to injury.

Cutler and the offense are also adapting to new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, who was hired after Adam Gase accepted the head coaching job with the Dolphins. Loggains was previously the quarterbacks coach with the Bears, so he and Cutler have some existing rapport, which should ease the transition.

The Lions said farewell to wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who retired following the 2015 season. To replace Megatron, they added a number of new faces, including Marvin Jones. Veteran receiver Anquan Boldin is also joining the team on a one-year deal. His presence should help keep the chains moving, but the two of them, along with Golden Tate, have everyone looking at them to carry the offense in Johnson’s place.

Detroit took steps to fix its struggling offensive line this offseason, adding free agent guard Geoff Schwartz and drafting tackle Taylor Decker in the first round of the 2016 draft. Training camp will be an opportunity for this unit to gel and prepare to protect Matthew Stafford this season.

The Lions are dealing with several injuries heading into training camp. Running back Ameer Abdullah should be ready to go at the start of camp after having shoulder surgery following last season. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew landed on the PUP list as he continues to recover from a torn ACL suffered toward the end of last season. Stevan Ridley’s status is unknown heading into camp. An undisclosed injury kept Ridley out of OTAs.

Newly acquired Jared Cook has the potential to be the matchup nightmare the Packers have been looking for at the tight end spot. How soon he gets the chance to find a groove with Aaron Rodgers depends on his recovery from offseason foot surgery.

Green Bay said goodbye to defensive tackle B.J. Raji, who retired following the 2015 season, leaving the team with some uncertainty along the defensive front. Fans will want to watch the way that depth chart begins to take shape during training camp. Rookie Kenny Clark may be able to carve out a starting role or significant snaps at nose tackle.

One of the more interesting NFL storylines of this offseason has been the evolution of running back Eddie Lacy’s physique. Lacy has worked with Tony Horton, the creator of P90X, to slim down and shape up. Jordy Nelson’s return is supposed to help the offense establish the consistency it lacked last season, but he’s already on the PUP with a minor injury to his other knee.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed: Feels ‘back to normal’ after concussion

Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed reached this same point a week ago as a limited participant in practice. But he then missed two more days when his concussion symptoms returned.

Reed is confident this time is different.

“I’m feeling 100 percent,” Reed said. “I feel Terrelle Pryor Jersey symptom-free.

Goff still has more waiting to do.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher has stated that he is not ready to make a change at quarterback, even though starter Case Keenum has the NFL’s lowest total QBR and is coming off a four-interception game in Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the New York Giants.

Fisher dismissed a report that Goff was a long way Tramon Williams Jersey from being ready to start.

“If he wasn’t making progress,” Fisher said of Goff, “he’d be a No. 3.”

Fisher felt Goff “did a nice job” with additional reps on Wednesday.

“We put him in all different situations,” Fisher said. “He participated in 7-on-7, then we had a red zone move, we had a first-and-10 run-play pass period, then we had a pressure period. He handled everything really well — huddle presence and understanding, snap count, Mike [middle linebacker] IDs. He was going against our defense; he hadn’t gone against our defense in a while.”

Left tackle Trent Williams was limited with a hyperextended knee. Though he still walked with a limp, Williams remained confident he would play Sunday.

Prescott or Wentz? Which rookie QB would teams rather have, based on what they know now?

No one was posing the question in April when the Eagles traded up to select Wentz with the second pick in the 2016 draft, 133 spots before Dallas took Prescott in the fourth round. But with Prescott ranking among the NFL’s top five qualifying QBs in Total QBR, passer rating and completion percentage, an updated assessment is in order.

UCLA’s Josh Rosen out indefinitely with nerve issue in shoulder

Coach Jim Mora said on Monday that Rosen has a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder and is out indefinitely.

Prescott could easily lead the Cowboys to the playoffs and likely deep into them, which would likely all but end talk of Romo playing another down in Dallas. Cutting him next offseason is still a possibility, but the Cowboys would be foolish to not seek compensation in a trade.

A quarterback-needy team like the Jets, 49ers, Bears Ziggy Ansah Jersey or Browns could use Romo’s services next season, and it wouldn’t require a king’s ransom to land him. If he doesn’t play a single snap this season, his trade value (as a result of his questionable health) will take a significant hit. If he’s put back into the lineup and leads the Cowboys to an NFC title game or beyond, Dallas could easily fetch a first-round pick, and possibly more.

The Browns declined to pick up Mingo’s fifth-year option, and the team has not seen Mingo live up to the potential they expected from him when they Alfred Morris Jersey drafted him. When they declined his option, a team source told NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that Mingo would have to have a big year with the team to justify a new contract. Mingo will not get the opportunity to do so in Cleveland.

The game will be played on Sunday, January 29, 2017 and simulcast live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

A member of the 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, Bettis was a six-time Pro Bowl selection and Super Bowl champion (XL) during his 13-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles and St. Louis Rams. Bettis, the 2001 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, finished his career with 13,662 rushing yards and ranks sixth among the NFL’s all-time rushing leaders. “Playing in the Pro Bowl was always exciting for me,” said Bettis. “It meant a lot to be recognized as one of the best in the game, and I’m looking forward to returning as a captain and sharing in the experience with the current and next generation of football’s best.”

“Some of my favorite NFL memories were from my Pro Bowl trips,” says Gonzalez. “One thing that made my Pro Bowl experiences so special was getting to share them with my family. Pro Bowl Week in Orlando brings that to a whole new level, and I’m excited to be a part of this event that brings together the entire football community — players, coaches, families and fans — to celebrate the game’s best.”

Rex Ryan isn’t doing much to help the Bills

The Bills proved they could connect on long touchdowns, but not much else in 37-31 loss to New York. The Jets were methodical, and the Bills were not.

RYAN CAN’T GET IT DONE: Strength Orlando Franklin Jersey of Rex Ryan’s defense lets him down as Buffalo Bills crumble. The Bills’ defensive backs were roasted Thursday night by Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets receivers as Buffalo fell to 0-2. For all the worry about Darrelle Revis, the Bills secondary was terrible. Mistakes and sloppy play doomed the Bills again, this time in a high-scoring affair.

REX ON THE HOT SEAT: Rex Ryan’s Philip Rivers Jersey coaching career is on life support after latest loss to Jets. The former Jets coach is 0-2 and facing an impatient fan base and owner in Buffalo.

Even for an NFL star, $6,000 is a sizable fine, and Hopkins admitted he wouldn’t wear the cleats again unless “Kanye wanted to pay the fine.” While Mr. West doesn’t seem to be ready to do that, adidas might pick up the bill so that Hopkins can keep wearing the Kanye creations.

I’m hearing from multiple people that adidas is putting a plan in place to cover NFL’s fines and have players continue to wear Yeezy cleats.

This is all coming from the league that wouldn’t let Antonio

We learned a few years after Glavine had left the Braves to sign with the Mets

TAMPA, Fla. — We learned a few years after Glavine had left the Braves to sign with the Mets, that he had significant after-the-fact misgivings about his decision to change uniforms. We learned from the pages of a book written by then-Braves general manager Schuerholz that Glavine spoke to the Braves Rudy Gay Jersey the day after agreeing to sign with the Mets and that he seriously considered reversing field. Glavine certainly didn’t need to move to the larger market to make his mark the big leagues. He had won 20 five times and won two National League Cy Awards before he left for the big city. Length and value of contract were issues, of course. But it’s not as though Glavine would have retired a baseball pauper had he re-signed with the Braves for less than the $50,000 million he earned five seasons with the Mets. The New area did have some intrinsic lure, of course. The Glavine family anticipated enjoying its time the suburbs north of Stadium. And it did. Other Vlade Divac Jersey factors influenced Glavine’s decision, not the least of which involved his extended family, which was located the Northeast. His standing the Major League Baseball Players Association was not one of them, contrary to what some believed. Glavine was more than active the union; he was the NL player rep for the better part of 10 years and articulate and candid spokesman for the union. None of that should suggest he chose the Mets rather than the Braves because of what it would mean to the MLBPA. One hundred percent nothing to do with decision, Glavine said late Tuesday afternoon by phone from his home outside Atlanta. The Braves’ offer wasn’t at all comparable to the Mets’, but… It ticked me off that people suggested that when I signed, he said. Anyone who knew me knows family came first. The union never tried to influence me, and there was nothing I was considering that had anything to do with what was best for the union. Shortly after Glavine signed with the Mets — early December 2002 — he made that clear by saying, The players who did much to gain freedom for themselves and for the guys who have followed didn’t go through all that another outside party could influence our decision. They won freedom, and now we have it and we should use it.

No one’s whispering our ears. Glavine retains strong feelings and abiding appreciation for the MLBPA. Understandably; his baseball salaries totaled nearly $130 million. Glavine and his family live comfort. He readily understands how it came to be that they are financially set for 30 lifetimes. Thirty franchises and 25 roster spots per club yield merely 750 job openings. And at any time, how millions of 20-somethings and veterans of past big league seasons seek jobs that competitive field? Those 750 are indeed elite and, as the founding father of the union, Marvin, taught this disciples, elite skills warrant elite compensation. Winning 305 clearly put Glavine among the elite of all time. Glavine, of course, had worked closely with Donald Fehr when Fehr was the executive director of the MLBPA. And after the hockey players hired Fehr and gave him the identical title 2010, Glavine’s interest shifted to the sport that had been one of his two passions as adolescent. Fehr hardly was familiar with the hockey players, and he wanted them to become familiar with him, to develop the level of trust the baseball players had the union staff. Fehr asked Glavine to share his thoughts with his new members. I just had a couple of conversations with some players, Glavine said Tuesday. I ‘t know how much influence I had. Glavine spoke of the need to remain united, as the baseball players had. And he stayed touch with Fehr during the lockout that threatened the 2012 season. Of course, Glavine isn’t directly responsible for the Jan. 12 settlement. But introducing Fehr to some of his membership and characterizing him was a positive step. Don’s a smart guy, Glavine said. And I wanted to dispel the improper perception that he makes demands the players follow him. Mostly Don and I spoke about experiences. We compared what the hockey players were going through to what the baseball players had experienced. Some of it was eerily similar. Glavine worried that the entire NHL season would become a casualty of the third work stoppage — all lockouts — once the Winter was canceled. Settlement came 12 days after the scheduled date. I’d been through that before, he said, a reference to cancellation of the 1994 World Series. I didn’t want anything like that to happen again. Those worries gone, Glavine moved deeper into the sport he left behind once he signed with the Braves 1984. He and two of his sons — 12-year-old Mason and 14-year-old Peyton — spent 10 days Toronto last month. The boys, members of a travel team from the Atlanta area, were competing the Quebec International Pee Wee Hockey Tournament, a prestigious event Glavine missed when he was skating Massachusetts as a teenager and attracting the attention of NHL teams. It’s big to-do, he said. It was great experience for them, and I really enjoyed time there. A little costly, but well worth it. And Glavine had the money because of the union. His gratitude is understood. is a columnist for. This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.

You as well say he was offensive genius at fucking badminton

Shabazz Muhammad spent the first three of ‘s season-and his college career-sitting on the bench while the NCAA deliberated on whether he’d committed a minor infraction that he’d specifically been advised not to Randy Foye Jersey worry about when he committed it. When he was finally reinstated, he got back on the floor just….
Your team: Buffalo Bills Your 2012 record: 6 after a 2 start. Every year, the Bills win one game early, and that one win-even if it’s against a opponent-is enough to turn every dumbfuck Bills fan into Ron Jaworski. I TELL YOU WHAT I REALLY LIKE THE BUFFALO BILLS I THINK THEY HAVE A TO BE OUTSTANDING TEAM THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. It takes virtually nothing to sucker these people. They are the lab rat that keeps getting shocked by the electrified cheese. Your coach: Doug Marrone, who went 25 as the head coach of Syracuse before getting this job. he’s like a less-impressive Schiano. OH GOODY. Please note that you can sidestep any criticism of your won-loss record if you simply convince people that you are offensive guru of some sort. Marrone’s biggest claim to fame is Ty Lawson Jersey riding Sean Payton and Brees’ coattails for a few seasons, which totally makes him a MASTERMIND. reality, he was average head coach with average record at a below-average football school a sport that is rigged to essentially GIVE you three to four cupcake wins per.

That’s what you’re getting, Buffalo. he was offensive genius at Syracuse? You as well say he was offensive genius at fucking badminton. Your quarterback: Tuel. THE UNDRAFTED JEFF TUEL OH GOD THIS IS WILLING TO WORK HARD. Think about how desperate you have to be at QB to start Tuel, sign Leinart, and trade for. Why trade for when you can make your own out of felt and ‘s Glue? We haven’t even made it to the regular yet and already the Bills have already seen one of their QBs have surgery and another end his career. Because that’s what happens if you’re a QB and you go to Buffalo: your life ends. Of course, Tuel, Leinart, and are all stopgap solutions for the Bills, who are waiting for first round draft pick EJ to get healthy again. Take it from someone who roots for the NFC’s equivalent of the Bills: Reaching the first round for injury-prone State QB rarely works out. Seeing perform well the preseason represents the best part of the Bills 2013. We’ve already passed the summit. Nothing but Tuel and empty bottles of LaBatt Blue for the next four months. Your fantasy player everyone hate:. Fuck with a jackhammer. Why your team sucks: The Gailey years already seem far away, like a personal tragedy that doesn’t feel real anymore. Did that happen? How could that have happened? Maybe it didn’t happen. It couldn’t have happened. Gailey coaching your team for three years? That’s just absurd. Here is the worst part: the Gailey years were orchestrated by Nix, who is 4,000 years old. The Bills went 16 the past three seasons. Any sane NFL franchise would have shitcanned Nix ages ago. But you know what the Bills did? They let Nix retire, and turned everything over to his fucking hand-picked successor. Confident he’s put place a foundation capable of turning the Buffalo Bills into a winner, Nix called this the right time to step down as general manager on Monday. Do you know how fucking insane that is? The Bills are a DISASTER. They’re barely NFL franchise anymore. And yet, here’s Nix his cowboy hat clicking his boots together and being like,. You didn’t do anything, Amarillo Slim! You hired Gailey! You gave HORRIBLE contracts to Fitzpatrick and ! YOU ARE THE FUCKING WORST. How can the franchise tolerate this? I’ll tell you how: Because owner is a dying, confused old who hires underlings strictly on the basis of whether or not they’ll bring flowers to his bedside. It’s lunacy. I’m not even a Bills fan, and yet I feel horrible for them. They root for a nursing home that should be burned to the fucking ground. They are organization that perfectly embodies the lifeless, fallow, economic hellscape that is New. The reason that Bills fans are delusional about their team’s chances, and the reason they threaten to cut you if you dare attempt to manage their expectations, is because false is all they have. If they’re forced to admit that the Bills are utterly hopeless, what is there for THEM? It’s just validation that their lives were empty and meaningless and that living Buffalo is like living inside Amish cave. That’s why they have to rep the #BILLSMAFIA hashtag. Why your team doesn’t suck: I have C.J. Spiller keeper league and he’s awesome and NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY KEEP HIM FROM GAINING 2 TOTAL YARDS SHUT IF YOU THINK OTHERWISE. The nine worst Bills ever: 1) JP Losman 2) Maybin. Zero sacks. That’s a perfect game! 3) Nix 4) Edwards. When considering the delusional qualities of Bills fans, just know that they were REALLY excited for Edwards. Unreasonably. 5) 6) O.J. Simpson.

Meche here or Crow there would fill a reserve role

Meche here or Crow there would fill a reserve role, and that would be that. You might have noticed that things have changed with Kansas City. The Royals captivated our collective imagination last October and have surged to start this. Now the difficulty is not much finding a on this roster worthy of his Midsummer moment but rather winnowing down the list of worthy candidates. has been the face of the Royals William Gholston Jersey for some time now. The No. 2 overall pick the 2005 Draft shifted from the hot corner to left field, reinventing his reputation to become one of the game’s great all-around players. One of the great things about Kansas City’s postseason run is that it gave the nation at large a greater appreciation for how much has meant to this franchise and fan base. Though his.266.432 line wasn’t all that eye-catching, FanGraphs’ WAR calculation pegged as the third-most valuable player baseball last.

That’s how much the advanced Alexander Semin Jersey math appreciated ‘s defensive contributions. This year, has bounced back from offseason right wrist surgery to improve upon his 2014 offensive totals, and he remains a defensive wonder. Just the other day, he made one of his patented crashes into the wall for a terrific catch against the Reds, and his dive into the stands against the White Sox last month remains one of the highlights of the 2015. But the crazy thing about the Royals is that they could probably get by just fine with a subpar defensive option either outfield corner. It sometimes seems Cain is capable of covering all three positions simultaneously. That’s exaggeration, of course, but Cain invites exaggeration with his electric play. Again, this was one of the things you had to about last October. Here was a who didn’t even take up baseball until his sophomore year of high school, and with a series of clutch hits and incredible plays on the game’s biggest stage, he established himself as a star. This, Cain has solidified his star status. He took a.303.426 line into the week, to go with a team-high seven stolen bases. And though the metrics obviously think highly of ‘s defense, they are absolutely head over heels with Cain’s glove — much that Cain entered the week trailing only Trout FanGraphs-calculated WAR value among full-time AL outfielders. take your pick among these Royals regulars. Because defensive metrics are uncertain, I’d lean toward ‘s more potent and more established offensive profile. But one way or another, Kansas City is likely to be well represented Cincinnati this.

Detroit also host Game 4 of this series on Tuesday

Detroit also host Game 4 of this series on Tuesday. Getting a split of the first two on the road came as a relief to Detroit head coach Babcock, who saw his team go just as the guest this . We’ll take the best-of-five and go back to our building and get out of here, said Detroit head coach Babcock.

We’ll be a better hockey club. This Max Unger Jersey is a good win for our team. We’ll take a step now. The fifth-seeded Red were backed by 24 saves from Game 2 at Bridgestone Arena. Ian White, Cory Emmerton and Johan Franzen all lit the lamp for Detroit, which is the playoffs for the 21st straight . Weber and Andrei Kostitsyn scored the goals for the fourth-seeded Predators, who got just 14 saves from Pekka Rinne. I thought we played really well, said Rinne. They didn’t really get anything, they were tired, they had to defend a lot, but they did a good job defending, and we didn’t give them much offensively.

It’s obviously frustrating when the score is this way and we created a lot of chances. Weber was allowed to play Game 2 after receiving a $2 fine for slamming Detroit’s Henrik Zetterberg’s head into the glass the closing seconds of the opener. Although Weber avoided a suspension, he did have to answer for his actions Game 2 when Detroit’s Bertuzzi got Nashville’s defenseman to drop the gloves for a fight early the first period. I just thought that the incident the other night wasn’t a part of hockey, Babcock Michael Bennett Jersey said of Weber’s actions Game 1. I haven’t seen it since junior hockey, and I thought it was unacceptable. And I think sometimes when things don’t get looked after, you have to look after it yourself and I didn’t think things were looked after at all. One of the biggest issues for Nashville right now is its inability to score on the power play.

The Preds finished first the NHL power-play efficiency during the regular , but have failed to score on 12 opportunities with the advantage this series. Detroit is 2-for-10 the series on the power play after going 0-for-2 on Friday. On the injury front for Nashville, the club has played the first two without defenseman Hal Gill, who was acquired from Montreal before the trade deadline to add depth to the blue line. The 6-foot-7 Gill is questionable for today’s game with a lower-body injury. The Predators, who have only made it past the first round of the playoffs once team history, are looking for their first playoff series victory against the Red the third meeting between the clubs. The Central Division rivals also met the first round 2004 and ’08, with Detroit taking both series six.

Two services were forced to turn back

Two services were forced to turn back after those on board had endured long delays at the French port. Another London-bound train was unable to get back to Paris due to a technical fault. Some passengers complained they had been abandoned the early hours of the morning as they waited for alternative transport.

Police had been called to Calais just before 9pm to reports of people on the tracks at the crossing, with hundreds of Cam Neely Jersey passengers stuck on carriages for hours while the trespassers were removed. Some travellers said they had seen migrants on top of other trains, and complained of their frustrations at the delays and re-routes.

One passenger on the 9055 train from Paris to London told of his anger on learning that he had to wait on alternative transport, having already been re-routed back to the French capital. tweeted: We’ve been abandoned on a platform somewhere the cold with NO INFORMATION. Eurostar apologised saying: It be possible for another train to be sent to you. We appreciate it is very late now and everyone must be very tired.

A number of passengers said they saw or were told of migrants the area. Lucy from London posted online: the trespassers are on the roof of the train front of us. Gentry said: On a Eurostar apparently ‘surrounded by migrants’. Been asked to ‘listen out for people walking on the roof’ while we wait for the police. Conor Maples wrote: Our Eurostar has been stopped outside Calais. Train manager told us there are migrants on the roof. Police are now here. Very very sad. A spokesman for Eurostar said passengers hoping to travel later this morning should expect a normal service.

But he added that two trains have been cancelled order to ensure the service is as robust as possible. The crossing at Calais has been plagued with problems all summer amid a growing migrant crisis. Many migrants are stationed at a Carl Soderberg Jersey camp near the port and on several occasions have broken into the Tunnel and climbed aboard lorries or trains attempt to get to the UK. Eurostar said it was sending empty train to Calais from London the early morning to pick up stranded passengers of the 9055 service. Traveller Mayes said he had far endured a nine-hour delay and described the operator’s apology as not good enough. He tweeted: Hungry, tired and fed-up people here. Not good, adding: children out the cold here. Disgusting. Related articles.
