Texans vs. Cowboys Week 4 preseason game canceled

The final preseason game between the Texans and Cowboys has been canceled, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport. It would have been a home game for the Texans, but was being relocated to AT&T Stadium in Dallas due to the destruction in Houston from Hurricane Harvey.

The Texans released a statement Wednesday saying that the Cheap Jerseys Online Wholesale decision was made to return to Houston after authorities found a safe route for the team to travel.

He went right out and got pulled over while driving drunk and told a cop on video that he needed to, and I’m quoting him here, “take a huge shit” two days before the Bucs’ home opener last season.

And thus ended his tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as well as any chance that he wouldn’t make me look stupid for writing that column.

It’s called Regenokine in the United States and is a variant of the German Orthokine process, which is not approved in the United States. The Stem Cell Institute says that the U.S. ban has to do with blood manipulation and blood storage.

According to the Seattle Times, Bennett will have treatment on his knee that he had surgery on last season. Lockett is still recovering from his tibia and fibula fractures from last season and will receive treatment for that.

Avril is recovering from sports hernia surgery this offseason, Wilhoite has had a calf issue, and Joeckel had knee surgery in 2016. They will all receive treatment on their respective Cheap Jerseys Sale injuries.

That means they’re sticking with the Flywire collar

Meanwhile, the Colts will retire Peyton Manning’s No. 18 during the Oct. 8 game against the 49ers. They’ll also unveil a Manning statue the day before the game.

And if you have two minutes, here’s a great little video report on the woman who has been sewing the names on the Colts’ jerseys for the past 33 years. Maybe she should get her own statue, just like Manning, right?

McCoy, 29, played in 15 games last season and 61 percent of the Bills’ total offensive snaps. He ran 234 times for 1,267 yards and 13 touchdowns.

“Yeah, I’m with that,” said McCoy when told McDermott could play him every snap.

McDermott previously said at the start of training camp that playing McCoy every snap might not be realistic.

“We’ll just see, we’ll see what he can handle,” McDermott Cheap Jerseys Kids NFL said July 29. “Like any player, we’re going to put him in the position to be successful and try to manage the downside, and it’s no different with LeSean. Running backs, you love for them to take a player like LeSean every rep of a game, but that’s not realistic, so we’ll see as we move week-to-week.”

“He had the tools, he has the leg,” said Bennett at Jets practice to look in on Edwards. “A lot of Australians who come over, they have this very difficult leg swing, and it’s hard Cheap Jerseys NCAA to get them to spiral the ball. Lach doesn’t have that. He has that natural American leg swing with that straight, big, flowing leg.

Why Nerlens Noel hiring Rich Paul as his new agent is bad news for the Mavericks

As contract negotiations with the Dallas Mavericks appear to have hit a standstill, restricted free agent center Nerlens Noel has hired Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, according to Basketball Insiders’ Mike Scotto.

Paul is best known as LeBron James’ agent, close friend, and business partner. But Paul is also known for his patience in brokering deals for his top players, a list that includes John Wall, Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, Eric Bledsoe, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

And as part of his negotiation tactics, Paul’s clients have never been afraid to hold out on signing a deal until teams cough up the desired amount of cash — sometimes even through training camp.

Noel has held out so far this offseason in hopes of landing a big contract.

Women deal with countless obstacles in the workplace; that is nothing new. But the fact that this referee’s employer couldn’t support her in the face of the biggest joke in the sports world stings as a shameful low. As women in sports, situations such as these put us face to face with the reality that the system doesn’t just fail to have your back — it might be ready and willing to throw you under the bus.

Following the event, LaVar went on to issue a nauseating “clarification”:

“You guys are trying to make it like a gender thing. It’s not that,” Ball told reporters after his Big Baller Brand’s AAU team lost at the Adidas Summer Championships on Saturday evening. “All I’m saying was, what’s her name? Exactly. The only reason you know her is she gave me and my son a tech. And that’s what it is when you Soccer Cheap Jerseys ref somebody who’s got a high celebrity. Every coach acts like that because the intensity of the game is so high. And I’m just saying, don’t have no Tampa Bay Lightning Cheap Jerseys vendettas in here.” […]

Shump is a lock down defender on the perimeter and this team needs that.

We needed someone to run the team at point guard and we thought Johnson was the type of young player we could build around. He’s not a traditional, pass-first guard but he can score the ball. He has improved every year in the league and we’re hoping that trend continues.
Virginia Beach: Tim Hardaway Jr. – New York Knicks

One word: defense. Shump is a lock down defender on the perimeter and this team needs that. We’re surrounding him with shooters so we don’t need him to score a lot, but he can hit the occasional corner three when called upon.

These players become restricted free agents in 2018 if no extension is reached by the end of October, and 2018 looks like a buyers’ market. Cap space is going to be fairly limited across the league. Even 2017 restricted free agents have gotten some raw deals — Nerlens Noel is still waiting on an offer.

If any eligible player is going to get an extension, it might be 2014 No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins. He’s a workhorse on a rising club who isn’t quite a star, but has shown signs that the ability is in there. Wiggins is exactly the kind of player teams should want to lock into fat extensions. The problem is, he wants more.

Reports suggest that Wiggins believes he is worthy of the max contract — roughly $150 million over five years — and doesn’t intend to take less. That’s a huge chunk of the Timberwolves’ cap sheet for half a decade, especially given that Minnesota doesn’t yet know just how good it will be or how Wiggins will fit with Jimmy Butler.

Given the expected tight market in 2018 and the low risk of losing Wiggins in the immediate term over sour negotiations, the Timberwolves have the benefit of time. But in the end, should Wiggins be a max player for Minnesota? Let’s Real Cheap Jerseys look at Plain Cheap Jerseys everything that goes into that question.

Solid guy and I had to keep Kristian from drafting Tim Hardaway Jr. with our first pick.

Kristian: The George Hill pick made sense for our first selection. Here is a veteran leader, competitor, a two-way player and stability at the most important position in basketball. We couldn’t risk letting Seattle get him.

Whitney: Taking Hill first sets the tone of the team. Solid guy and I had to keep Kristian from drafting Tim Hardaway Jr. with our first pick.

Keep in mind that Towns is eligible for an extension next summer that would kick in for the 2019-20 season. Butler can opt out in 2019 and sign a fatter deal. Depending on cap growth and All-NBA berths, he could double his salary. This is all going to pinch Minnesota hard, especially if Glen Taylor remains the owner.

Taylor hasn’t paid luxury tax in a decade. In fairness, Minnesota has been mediocre or worse for more than a decade. There hasn’t really been an opportunity. But it’s unclear how much management will be willing to shell out given its market size.

Let’s point out that Wiggins’ contract isn’t by default the problem here, just as Towns’ contract wouldn’t be the problem in 2019. The $36 million committed to Gibson, Gorgui Dieng, and Cole Aldrich in 2018-19 is a much bigger deal — that’s a third of the salary cap sheet dedicated to rotation big men who can essentially never share the court. You can’t pay two Towns caddies and a back-up that much money when your young Online Cheap Jerseys stars start to get paid at market rate.

Gibson and Aldrich come off the books before Towns’ new deal will kick in (barring extensions), but 2018-19 — with Wiggins’ pay raise — will be awful sticky. This situation also makes one raise an eyebrow at the Rubio trade followed by the Teague signing. Rubio was much, much more affordable than Teague, and quite possibly Patriots Cheap Jerseys a better fit for the roster as a pass-first defender.

7 LeBron James trade ideas for the most untradeable player of all time

During a quiet moment on a nondescript offseason night, NBA finals MVP Kevin Durant and advertising-copywriter-turned-moderately-successful-rapper NFL Cheap Jerseys Nike Lil’ Dicky engaged in a casual conversation about the Cavaliers possibly trading LeBron James. It was civil, sincere, and engaging; a total rarity for Twitter.

The conversation was topical in that LeBron is a free-agent-to-be who’s reportedly frustrated with the Cavaliers’ dysfunction. It was also a complete fantasy because LeBron James cannot be traded — legally because he has a no-trade clause and functionally because no team would ever trade LeBron freakin’ James.

Still, it got us thinking: What if the Cavaliers actually could trade LeBron and decided they needed to do so? What could possibly be fair value for the greatest basketball player of this generation?

The biggest question in all of this is how good a Butler-Towns-Wiggins-Teague team can be in the Western Conference. Some analysts are suggesting a low-end playoff berth is in the cards. Some are predicting an even better result.

The truth is likely somewhere in the middle: the Wolves don’t quite have the depth to hit 55 wins, but this isn’t merely a .500 team with Butler and the ascendant Towns. Given health and a reasonably smooth transition for Butler — who has the benefit of linking up with the coach under whom he found his stardom — the Wolves should find themselves in the 45- to 48-win range.

In terms of the salary cap sheet, the Wolves are already in a sticky situation. A max contract for Wiggins would put the 2018-19 Wolves near the expected luxury tax threshold without accounting for Nemanja Bjelica, who will be a Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap restricted free agent in 2018.

Here were the NBA Christmas Day games we wanted

How do you know you’re not a kid anymore? When you stop waking up at 7 a.m. on Christmas Day, eager to sprint downstairs to tear apart wrapping paper clinging to your presents, and instead roll out of bed a couple hours before noon, killing time before the five-game slate of NBA games that happens each and every Buy Cheap Jerseys year.

The league displayed the Timberwolves last year, and showcasing them again with Jimmy Butler in tow would have made even more sense. The Los Angeles rivalry and the Cavaliers vs. Warriors showdown are both inevitable, we’re betting. UPDATE: Guess not on the LA showdown! No Clippers!

There are few surprises in terms of who will be getting national TV games: plenty of action on ABC, ESPN, and TNT for the Warriors, Cavaliers, Rockets, Thunder, Celtics, and, uh, Lakers. Y’all really have to stop being surprised the Lakers are on TV so much: they draw, and as a Pacific Time Zone team they have the advantage of scarcity. Some West Coast team has to host late games. You can only give the Warriors, Clippers, and Blazers so many of them.

The 18-7 Sparks needed every bit of Johnson’s production against a 13-14 Wings squad that watched Candace Parker and Nneka Ogwumike score 21 points apiece. This was a huge win for the Wings as they are fighting for a playoff spot.

It was Toliver’s night to shine, as she tallied 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting to lead the Mystics to an 85-80 win over the Mercury. Toliver came up big down New Vikings Jerseys Cheap the stretch, scoring seven of Washington’s last 11 points, including a clutch step-back jumper to give the Mystics a three-point lead with 13 seconds left.

The Mystics now have a two game lead over the Mercury for the fourth seed in the WNBA Playoffs. They also play each of their next three games at home, since this was their first home game since the All-Star Break ended.

This caricature of Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story is friendship goals

Caricatures make great memories, whether it’s from a day on a seaside boardwalk with your family, or a carnival as a teenager, or one of those sidewalk caricature artists who you find in New York City and pay for one to be done because you’re just tipsy enough from brunch still that it seems worth it.

Baseball buddies Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story got one done together in the Rockies’ dugout last month during Family Day celebrations, to solidify their friendship and have a little fun.

This caricature actually seems like a great representation of these two players and their friendship. They’re both smiling, Story’s hair is very accurate, and Blackmon’s beard taking up over half of the page is exactly how it should be.

The only bad thing about this caricature is that it took a month for it to be released to the public so everybody can enjoy it together.

Adrian Beltre has just reached 3,000 hits in the major leagues, and in celebration of his varied, humorous, and never boring career, it’s time to celebrate all the amazing things that have cemented him as one of the most entertaining people in the league at any given moment.

Whether it’s his phobia of people touching his head (he’s serious guys, stop it!), his defensive prowess on the hot corner year after year, or the spontaneous moments in games and in the dugout that give you insight into his Cheap NHL Jerseys personality, Beltre is a non-stop barrel of laughs. Even when he doesn’t mean to be.

To try and get those laughable, unique moments all in one place, this Cheap Official Jerseys is the Adrian Beltre Encyclopedia.

Max Scherzer removed himself from the game after hitting his first career home run

In the second inning of the Nationals’ tilt against the Marlins, Max Scherzer hit his first career home run: a three-run shot that put Washington up 4-zip early in the game.

While that should be exciting for the team and fans, and for Scherzer, it almost immediately turned sour when Scherzer abruptly pulled himself from the game in the bottom of the inning.

But isn’t that the best kind of friendship? When you can be sort of joking and sort of serious all in one moment? That’s when you know it’s real. And with these two guys, it’s real.

Mike Trout happened to also hit his 150th home run when he was 24 years and 295 days old. Which wouldn’t be so incredible if it weren’t for the fact that both players have long been compared to each other.

In fact, it seems that no major milestone can be reached by either player without a note of comparison about the other.

Trout did hit number 150 in less games than Harper, at game No. 701 of his career, while Harper reached it in game No. 759. Even so, what remains true is that both players remain outsized talents at a young age, and people we will be talking Cheap New York Giants Jerseys about to our children and grandchildren.

This is just another statistic that will serve as an entertaining Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping footnote for two very impressive careers.

Felix Hernandez and Adrian Beltre’s fake feud never gets old

When Beltre signed with the Rangers, he was coming off a stint in Boston where wide swaths of people seemed to really notice him for the first time. It’s not like he wasn’t a good player during his decade-plus in Los Angeles and Seattle, but it wasn’t the same national Beltre experience as fans know now.

So in going to the Rangers, not only were his antics known and recognized, but he found a partner in crime to share his goofs with and we couldn’t be happier this happened.

Elvis Andrus and Beltre have more fun messing with each other on the field than possibly any other combination of players in the league. Even when they look mad at each other, you can tell it’s in a love way like people who have been friends since childhood.

It might happen during a huddle on the mound or a break during an inning, but the best moments between these two are when they goof off while in the process of making plays. I mean, just look at these two and try not to crack a smile.

While there are baseball friendships all across the league, there isn’t one as present on the diamond as this one. Nor one that adds to the entertainment of the game in quite the same way:

At this point, many people know about Adrian Beltre and Felix Hernandez’s friendship. They’ve been nigh inseparable since they were Cheap Mountain Bike Jerseys teammates in Cheap MLB Jerseys Seattle, and the fun didn’t stop once Beltre left the Pacific Northwest for other markets.
