Limited Mens Red Schoendienst Jersey Yet, according to NFL.com, New Orleans decided to stay in house for talent Wednesday, re-signing restricted free-agent wide receiver Brandon Coleman.

Coleman, a 6-6 target, hauled in 23 receptions for 365 yards and three touchdowns in 2017. He has 79 receptions in three NFL seasons, and has grown as a route runner during his time with Brees.

New Orleans also signed Bears restricted free-agent wide receiver Cameron Meredith last week, and had been linked with recently cut Dez Bryant.

CONTINI: I’m 55 years old, and it’s hard to get caught up in things at my age. But I was as excited as a little kid. And I loved seeing his reaction. I was thinking, he can’t ever leave this city. But how can you ask anything more of an athlete?

NATHANIEL BUTLER, NBA ENTERTAINMENT PHOTOGRAPHER WHO GOT THE ICONIC SHOT OF LEBRON JUMPING ON THE SCORER’S TABLE: As a fan, I love those shots. It’s not a game in the middle of February on a Tuesday night. This is money time. This is playoffs. And then, fortunately, just staying with LeBron. Him jumping on the table, I literally pushed the button once. When you’re shooting with strobes, you only get a frame once every four seconds.

JAMES: I’m going to let you guys do the ranking of where that fits in my playoff performances. It’s given us the lead in a playoff series and I think we played some really good basketball tonight, and for me to be able to make that shot and for us to be able to take the lead in the series — that’s what’s most important.

Bryant felt let down by some of his teammates following his release and blamed the team captains for playing a role in his departure. However, the Garrett guys he referred to insist the choice wasn’t theirs to make.

For me, I mean being a quarterback, being a captain, I take the blame, quarterback Dak Prescott said. I take all the blame. When you lose, things like this happen. So Dez knows how I feel. We’ve shared messages and he knows my stance on everything so I wish him well.

While tight end Jason Witten developed a close relationship with Bryant during his tenure, he defended the captains and their involvement in the situation.

I don’t know what all that’s about, Witten said. I know when you go through these processes there’s a lot of things that probably go into it. I know I enjoyed my time with Dez and I think that I appreciated everything that we were able to do.

Saints won’t match Ravens offer to Willie Snead

Wide receiver Willie Snead reported to Saints workouts last week without signing his restricted free agent tender, but he won’t be spending the rest of the offseason in New Orleans.
Men's Nike Cincinnati Bengals #28 Joe Mixon Elite White NFL Jersey
Snead signed an offer sheet with the Ravens late last week and PFT has learned, via a league source, that the Saints will not match the offer. Snead was tendered at the lowest level so Baltimore does not owe any compensation for signing the wideout.

It’s a two-year, $7 million contract for Snead with another $3.4 million available via incentives. Snead caught 141 passes for the Saints in 2015 and 2016 before dropping to eight catches in 11 games last season. Snead was suspended to start the year and never recovered his former role in the offense once he was reinstated.

Young Namath was more concerned with his surgical knee than the New York microscope. That was in the pre-TMZ, Page Six and social media days.

There wasn’t as much scrutiny, Namath said. You weren’t as much on stage, so to speak.

Namath, so proud of his Joe Namath Foundation supporting children’s charities and neurological research (JoeNamath.org) was asked if he had any advice for the incoming Jets quarterback.

I was just very emotional and upset. I would like to be clear, although our relationship is not perfect, we love one another and David not not put his hands on me at any time. I’m deeply sorry this has caused both of us so much unwanted and undue attention. David is a great father and our focus is working on our relationship and raising our beautiful daughter.

Irving, a Cowboys defensive lineman, denied on social media that he had done anything wrong.

NBC wasn’t the first major network to tack its own digital metric onto the traditional Nielsen TV ratings for live sporting events, when releasing the results of Super Bowl and Winter Olympics broadcasts. Promoting Total Audience Delivery, NBC enjoyed a noticeable uptick by including the final number of fans who watched the events through its streaming service.

Reggie McKenzie says he and Jon Gruden are on the same page in the draft

Who’s really calling the shots in the Raiders’ draft room, General Manager Reggie McKenzie or coach Jon Gruden? McKenzie says he doesn’t see it ever coming to a head.

Back to their playoff pedigree: The Capitals are perhaps the most unlikely team in the postseason to rally from an 3-0 hole, which would be the fifth time it’s been done in NHL history. Now, rallying from that deficit only to lose in a Game 7? That would fit much better in Washington’s endless parade of humbling postseason disasters.

Chris Peters, NHL prospects columnist: It’s the Toronto Maple Leafs. I thought they’d put up a much better fight against the Boston Bruins, but no team has looked as dialed in as Boston during the early stages of this postseason. The Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak line appears near unstoppable at this point, with 20 points collectively through two games. If Toronto can’t stop the bleeding in Game 3, I wonder if the Leafs should even come out for Game 4.

Is it? James said. I’ve never lost a game in the first round before in my career?

But while he knows the narrative before Wednesday’s Game 2 will be on the struggles of Cleveland’s playoff newcomers, James isn’t worried.

I’m down 0-1 in the first round, he said. I was down 3-1 in the Finals. So, I’m the last guy to ask about how you’re going to feel the next couple days.

The Pacers are feeling confident after beating the Cavs for fourth time this season.

Indiana took control from the outset, opening a 21-point lead in the first quarter and pushing it to 23 in the third. The Cavs got within seven in the fourth, but Oladipo, once a role player who has blossomed into an All-Star in his first season with Indiana, hit a big 3-pointer and Bojan Bogdanovic helped put Cleveland away with a 3 to make it 88-71.

When the final horn sounded, the Pacers didn’t celebrate or run around the floor like they had accomplished anything special.

They calmly walked off, business as usual.

Chiefs have high expectations for their offense

The Chiefs started their first day of offseason work since Patrick Mahomes took over the starting quarterback job on Monday and his fellow offensive players expressed plenty of optimism about how the offense will look with Mahomes at the helm.

Limited Mens Michael Stone Jersey I missed the entire second half up until the last drive, Kelce said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. I jumped out of an MRI machine and looked at the score and [wondered, ‘What the heck is going on?’ I haven’t really peeked at the film ever since because I really don’t want to know what the heck just happened. I don’t think the people doing the MRIs and the X-rays even watch the game. I don’t even there’s a TV in there. I didn’t get any updates. Talk about ruin your day. All the air just left my body. I just sat down and had my fingers crossed that [quarterback Alex Smith] could go out there and make some plays and get us on to the next round.

Kelce said he would have played the following week had the Chiefs advanced, but they lost 22-21, and the team traded Smith Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey to Washington in the offseason.

Patrick Mahomes takes over as the starting quarterback, with the Mahomes era starting Monday with the offseason program.

There are plenty of players with contract bonuses tied to their weight, but it’s rare to hear of one that big 鈥?even in the dollar amount or in the number of pounds over a player’s listed weight. Wallace is listed at 200 pounds and has never appeared to weigh anything close to 250.

Wallace did fail his first conditioning test after signing with the Ravens two years ago, so it’s possible that the Eagles were concerned 鈥弔hat he might not keep himself in tip-top shape during the offseason. But if Wallace were at any risk of weighing over 250, he’d be beyond just not in tip-top shape for an NFL wide receiver. He’d be out of shape for an NFL fan.

Wallace wrote on Twitter that he has to lose five pounds by Monday. We’re pretty sure he’s joking.

Brett Favre says he might have had thousands of concussions during his Hall of Fame career.

Love, who missed almost six weeks this season with a broken left hand, immediately went to the bench with 3:43 left in the game.

Cavaliers medical personnel worked on Love’s hand and taped it up. He did not return to the game, despite George Hill fouling out with 36.3 seconds left.

Sometimes I just do things that come to my head, Mitchell says, shrugging and taking a sip of his smoothie.

It’s a brief moment of levity during a 55-minute film session the day after the Jazz’s March Antoine Bethea Womens Jersey 28 loss to the Boston Celtics. These sort of sessions, which Bryant conducts daily, with Snyder occasionally joining the pair or calling in Mitchell for additional individual film study, have been an essential part of Mitchell’s evolution into the rare NBA rookie who serves as a bona fide go-to guy on a good team.

The Golden Knights want a Stanley Cup title to conclude their already amazing inaugural season in the NHL.

Vegas is on its way, beating the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Tuesday night and becoming the first expansion team in league history to sweep its first playoff series.

The Knights became the second team to win their first four playoff games, joining the 1970 Pittsburgh Penguins.

McNabb scored from the right circle, beating Jonathan Quick’s glove, at 4:04 of the second for his first career playoff goal. The Kings left the defenseman exposed in last year’s expansion draft and the Knights snapped him up.

The Kings pulled Quick in the closing seconds, when Dustin Brown skated straight toward the net and just missed.

That’s what the playoffs are all about. It’s so close, Kings center Anze Kopitar said. It’s not like we were blown out of the water.

Brown also hit the left post with 10 minutes to go in the third, typical of the close calls that failed to generate goals for the Kings in the series. They outshot the Knights 31-21 in the game.

I just have this attitude like I don’t really feel like I’ve done anything yet, Cohen said, via ESPN.com. I wasn’t in the Pro Bowl.

The Bears have added weapons to their offense in free agency and could add others in the draft next week, but Cohen’s likely to get plenty of chances to prove himself regardless of who else is on hand come September.

Tyler Myers leaves Jets’ game with apparent leg injury

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tyler Myers left Sunday night’s 6-2 loss to the Wild in Minnesota with an apparent leg injury.

Myers, who scored one of the two Winnipeg goals, went down along the boards after colliding with the Wild’s Marcus Foligno with 4:19 left in the second period.

Myers stayed down on the ice for a minute or two before being helped up and limping to the dressing room.

The Jets lead the first-round Western Conference series 2-1, with Game 4 set for Tuesday night in Minnesota.

Myers scored six goals to go with 30 assists during the regular season, and now he has a pair of goals and an assist in the playoffs.

Maximizing the attention Mitchell commands is a frequent theme throughout the film session. It’s why Bryant harps so much on sprinting all the way to the corner in transition. It’s why Snyder shows Mitchell a possession on which the rookie never touches the ball but affects the play by circling back to the top of the arc while Rubio probes the baseline — “Nashes,” as Snyder calls it — stretching the defense to create room for Gobert to cut for a dunk.

Erin and Gregg Popovich were married while he worked as an assistant coach at the Air Force Academy from 1973 to 1979. Erin’s father, Jim Conboy, was a former athletic trainer for the Falcons.

The Spurs next play Thursday night at home against the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their first-round series. It was not immediately known whether their 69-year-old head coach would be with the team, and the Spurs asked that the media respect the family’s privacy.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant learned of Erin Popovich’s death shortly after the Spurs released their statement.

“I just want Pop to know that the whole NBA family is supporting him and got his back through it all,” Durant said. “It’s bigger than the game. It’s bigger than winning and losing. It’s about the brotherhood we built as NBA players and everybody in the NBA family. I feel so bad for Pop and his family. That’s just tough to hear about.”

Sheldon Richardson was traded away last year. Then, Muhammad Wilkerson was cut this offseason.

I don’t think it has sunk in yet, Williams said on a conference call Monday. It’s pretty crazy to think about how fast the time has gone by, just getting here as a rookie and having Snacks and Sheldon and Mo here, and being the one guy left out of all those guys. What’s been helpful is even though the time went by fast and I was really young, I got to learn from a lot of great guys like those guys. I got to take away certain stuff from each one of those guys that I want to apply to my own game.

I feel like I’ve been right there, Williams said. The years that I don’t have a lot of sacks, I still have a lot of quarterback hits. That’s my goal, that’s always been my goal, is to not have it close anymore and to make those hits into sacks. It’s just getting that one step closer. I’ve always been right there. I’m pretty sure it’s close and everyone can see that. There’s no pressure. It’s just working to get better.

Dez Bryant believes his rather abrupt release from the Dallas Cowboys was partly the culmination of players and coaches on Jason Garrett’s staff who wanted him gone.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with NFL Network’s Jane Slater on NFL Total Access, the wide receiver blamed Garrett guys for spearheading the Cowboys’ decision to end his eight-year career with the team.

The Bucs have big needs related to their pass rush and secondary, but based on value and the best player who can immediately change their fortunes, Barkley blows away the other options.

The Browns got busy with their secondary in NFL free agency, adding T.J. Carrie, Damarious Randall (via trade) and Terrance Mitchell while subtracting Jason McCourty. So while they’re probably still looking at Sam Darnold at No. 1 overall to groom behind Tyrod Taylor, Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick no longer looks like the best pick at No. 4.
