One day after Hurricane Irma ravaged much of Florida, the Glazer family, owners of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, announced that they will donate $1 million to the storm’s relief efforts through the American Red Cross.
Structural engineers will inspect the Miami Dolphins’ Daimion Stafford Jersey stadium after a possible tornado was reported in the area during Hurricane Irma, according to multiple reports.
“Hurricane Irma left a path of destruction throughout the entire Authentic Dustin Colquitt Jersey state of Florida. The long recovery process is already underway, and the entire Buccaneer organization stands in support of all those who have been impacted,” Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer said.
The deal gives Hekker $10 million guaranteed, the most ever for a punter, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Hekker has been named first-team All-Pro three times in six NFL seasons. Last year, he downed an NFL-record 51 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. Hekker registered a 46.0-yard net average on 98 punts that year, breaking his own NFL record from 2013 (44.2-yard net average on 78 punts).
Hekker, who initially signed a six-year extension in 2014, downed all five of his punts inside the 20-yard line in Sunday’s 46-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
The Rams signed defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks through 2018 earlier on Monday. They’re still looking to agree on extensions with defensive tackle Aaron Donald, inside linebacker Alec Ogletree and defensive back Lamarcus Joyner.
The Home Depot Backyard plans to offer unique game and match day experiences for Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United fans, as well as year-round opportunities for the community to enjoy the space through arts, culture, and entertainment events, military veteran appreciation activities. and everyday access to a beautiful greenspace with play areas and fun activities.
Limited Mens Hampus Lindholm Jersey In March, Spencer Hall gave the Georgia Dome a eulogy:
They’re big, they’re hairy, and they’re mostly not all that great at football. But props to the NFL for making this easy with exactly four non-cat animals.
This might be the best thing that could possibly happen to the Broncos. Sure, they STILL won’t have the best QB in the division, but the other three teams are so bad Trevor Siemian would be good enough to bank on winning the Large Mammal division every year for awhile.
That Elliott will be available Sunday could be viewed as a minor victory for Elliott and the Cowboys. While the team has expressed support for Elliott’s potential replacements — Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris and Rod Smith — none is as good as Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing with 1,631 yards last season.

Before Elliott was cleared to play in Week 1, the Cowboys were 3.5-point favorites over the Giants at the majority of Las Vegas sportsbooks. The line ticked up to Dallas -4 after the news was announced.
The 49ers and Vikings were the nightcap, where Brian Hoyer had himself a great evening, going 12-of-17 for 174 yards and two touchdowns. The Vikings never led during the game, but were able to come out with a victory anyway.
Trubisky managed to shine in the second half, but Glennon looked good early, too. Chicago’s first score was a Glennon strike to a wide-open Dion Sims, which made Glennon look like he’s worth every penny the Bears are paying him this season:
Glennon was able to spread the ball around, but he didn’t make this one easy for wide receiver Rishard Matthews. Bears linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski almost knocks this one down, but Matthews ends up in the right place at just the right moment to tip the ball to himself and pull in the catch:

The food that best describes Indiana is fried tenderloin, but unless your tailgate includes a deep fryer, that isn’t happening. So I’ll go with pulled pork. When it’s done just right, it’s about the best thing you could ever eat. You put a lot of time into pulled pork, though. if you overcook it, get the temperature too hot, or pick a nasty-tasting rub, it will be really disappointing.
Chris Hogan Authentic Jersey No team has had more fourth-quarter comebacks than the Colts dating back to Peyton Manning’s rookie year. During his time in Indianapolis, Manning put together 34 fourth-quarter comebacks. Luck took the torch to add another 14. The Cardiac Colts of Jim Harbaugh lived on through Manning and Luck and keep fans in Indianapolis on the edge of their seats knowing that the team is never fully out of the game until it ends.
Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Tuesday he’s awaiting a decision from the NFL as to whether his team’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be moved to another city or a day earlier this week because of Hurricane Irma.
Our final tier, quite simply, comprises those teams that have the best shot at winning with top-10 units on both sides of the ball. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it includes the two Super Bowl favorites and six of the nine teams with the best Super Bowl odds.

The Seahawks were Nike’s marquee team when the company took over the NFL’s uniform contract in 2012 (though the seemingly radical makeover the team received at the time feels rather tame by today’s standards), so it’s no surprise that Seattle has upgraded to Nike’s new template. In addition to swatting the Flywire, the new look allows the two side stripes to extend farther toward the center of the jersey.
One final Rams note: Newly acquired wideout Sammy Watkins has been wearing No. 2 during preseason games. That’s kosher in August, when the NFL relaxes its numbering requirements because of the large roster sizes, but Watkins will have to switch to something in the standard wide receiver numeral ranges — 10 through 19 and 80 through 89 — once the regular season starts.
Defensive tackle Aaron Donald’s prolonged holdout spilled into Wednesday, while the Los Angeles Rams prepared their game plan for Sunday’s season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

Game Mens Breno Giacomini Jersey Newton had surgery on March 30 to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. The 2015 NFL MVP was limited in throwing much of the first four weeks of training camp and played only one series — a 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive — during the four preseason games.
Jaleel Johnson Authentic Jersey But Newton has been a full participant in practice the past week as the Panthers began installing the game plan for San Francisco.
The staff was so confident with where Newton is medically that third-string quarterback Joe Webb was released on Saturday. Carolina still will carry three quarterbacks after claiming former University of Miami star Brad Kaaya following his release by Detroit.
But Kaaya was brought in to be developed for the future with backup Derek Anderson, 34, in the last year of his contract. Webb, 30, hadn’t taken an in-season snap at quarterback since he was at Minnesota in 2013.
General manager Marty Hurney said releasing Webb was tough because of his versatility and locker room presence. But he echoed Rivera’s sentiments on where Newton is.
We have been on a plan since training camp,” Hurney said. I think we feel very confident. We do feel very confident. Every day he takes more and more. He’s looked good. He’s felt good. We have a lot of confidence in him.”
Until Browns tight end Seth DeValve knelt in prayer with several Browns teammates during the national anthem before Monday’s preseason game, no other white NFL player had taken part in a national anthem protest.
But Jenkins also was one of the first players last season to join Kaepernick’s protest, by standing and raising his first during the anthem. He has continued to do it in preseason games this year 鈥?including Thursday’s home game, during which teammate Chris Long, a vocal supporter of the protests, stood next to him with his arm around his shoulder.

I think it’s a good time for people that look like me to be there for people that are fighting for equality, Long told reporters. Long joined the Jets’ McCown as white NFL players who have publicly supported the cause of Jenkins and others.
Smith, who recently became an Eagles teammate of Jenkins (and has been a teammate of both Boldin and Kaepernick), has spoken often with the congressional representative from his former NFL home in Baltimore. He has been active in each community in which he’s played, and he has been the nominee for the Walter Payton award by the Ravens and 49ers.
There’s no reason to forget it now, with Kaepernick officially opting out of his contract. Delete all the personal feelings one way or the other about the protest, and what bubbles back up is how toxic things were between him and the team dating back to Jim Harbaugh’s last season as coach.

This has been building for a while. Kneeling distracted everybody from it 鈥?in fact, it distracted everybody just months after the 49ers had shopped him around trying to satisfy his trade request.
These dollars will be put to go use in the relief and recovery efforts, Texans coach Bill O’Brien said Monday, via NFL.com. We also hope our actions will encourage others to do whatever they can to help their neighbors in need right now. You know football, obviously, is important, but I think the most important thing right now is doing everything we can for our city.
I can tell you right now, we’re going to dedicate this season to the city of Houston, to the people of Houston. There are no guarantees in football — that’s not what I’m here to say. But I will guarantee this team will go out every Sunday, Monday, Thursday — whenever they ask us to play — and we’ll play our asses off for the city of Houston, I promise you that.
Washington is expected to lose Kirk Cousins in free agency next year. The team speaks highly of Colt McCoy, but he’s not its future. Coach Jay Gruden might be enamored by Allen’s upside.

Miami has invested in cornerback recently, with Xavien Howard in the second and Cordrea Tankersley in the third in recent years. But Ward can be the feature corner the Dolphins thought Byron Maxwell would be, and he can keep their secondary a strength.

But it was there with the 49ers, during one of the very worst seasons in their storied history, with another coach being forced to walk the plank … and, thanks to an odd chain of events, with Kaepernick proving he was neither washed up as a player nor locker room poison.
All things considered in a depth-poor NFL quarterback landscape, that’s going to get Kaepernick some interest, and he’s much easier to acquire now than he was a year ago.
Former Packers running back Ahman Green on Thursday pleaded not guilty to child abuse charges, WBAY first reported.
Green, who is due to return to court in December, was charged with felony child abuse and disorderly conduct in June stemming from an incident that involved his teenage daughter earlier that month.
Alright, so what’s going on here? The important thing to know is that you can score one point if you kick the ball out of the endzone, or are able to tackle an opponent in the endzone. In an effort to avoid this, a player may opt to perform an open-field kick, which is what you see in the video.
So, considering it’s a tied game, if either team is able to kick the ball out of the opposing endzone, they end up as winners without having to go into overtime. So that’s why you see each team punting the ball.
Although the final punt by the Bombers was a bit confusing considering how far back they were. It’s also a wonder why the Alouettes didn’t keep trying to kick since they had their opponents pinned back.
Eventually the Bombers won the game in overtime, 34-31.
When Rudolph signed this contract back in 2014, it made him one of the highest-paid tight ends in the NFL. He had the best year of his career in 2016 with 840 yards and seven scores, but that opportunity had more to do with a lack of options on the offense than his dominant play. The Vikings should have been able to sign him for about $2 million a year lower than this in 2014.
Jose Calderon and the Cleveland Cavaliers have reached an agreement on a one-year deal at the minimum on Saturday, his agency Priority Sports announced. Calderon was technically a part of last year’s Warriors team for two hours, but this signing gives him a real chance to join a title-contending team for the 2017-18 season.

It’s just that with Ron Baker, dollars and cents and contracts are beside the point. This is Ron Baker. He is a New York Knick. Everything will be alright.
If Rose signs or flees, Ron Baker is a Knick. If Melo stays or if he goes, Ron Baker is a Knick. If David Griffin or Masai Ujiri or Spike Lee or Steve Mills or no one at all becomes the team’s new president, Ron Baker is a Knick.
Andy Pettitte Jersey The New York Knicks had one job in the wee hours of July 1. Mission accomplished.
Olynyk’s per-game numbers mask his solid production — he’s just never been a featured player for Brad Stevens. Given a bigger role elsewhere, he could be a 14-8 center at relatively high efficiency given how many threes he shoots. He’s 26 (older than you’d expect from a restricted free agent) and his defense is a mixed bag. But he should probably be a starter in the NBA at his point in his career. Phoenix could be an interesting fit.
Denver traded Jusuf Nurkic and a first-round pick for the right to pay Mason Plumlee in free agency, so they’d better do so. Of course, this constitutes falling right into the sunken cost fallacy. Christian Laettner 2.0 is getting a $60-80 million offer sheet from someone; the Nuggets will have to decide what to do at that point.
One of the best feelings when watching a game has to be just sharing that experience with other people. You can watch it with friends, family, or strangers at a bar. But when something special happens, you’re all part of it. And you can do this with just a TV.
Kids Derek Wolfe Jersey But some events are more unique just because you were at the arena or stadium. The game itself doesn’t have to be a championship game or anything. In fact, a random regular or preseason game that you remember vividly could be as important to you than any title. It’s all on how you experienced and remember it.
Olympic basketball doesn’t belong on this list — but this game does, because I witnessed something iconic, and a moment I will never, ever, ever forget. I saw Vince Carter Dunk of Death over Frederic Weis in person.

All of those numbers and that positive quantitative assessment of Wiggins came in an environment where Wiggins was the clear No. 2 option and top wing player on a fairly bad team. That’s not what he’ll be for the Timberwolves going forward.
With the trade for Jimmy Butler, Wiggins is bumped to a No. 3 option who will have the ball in his hands much less. In addition, Jeff Teague has traditionally been more ball-dominant than Rubio, who he replaces. That could also affect Wiggins’ offensive touches.
On offense and defense the new roster should take some pressure off Wiggins. The lessened quantity of responsibility should improve the quality and hopefully making him more efficient. But given that Wiggins’ value to date has largely been wrapped up in the quantity of his production, this shift may complicate further judgment!
