The NFL released the 2017 preseason schedule Monday

The specific NFL schedule release date typically is not known until a few days prior. But for 2017, the NFL hopes to release its regular-season schedule sometime between April 17 and April 21, according to ESPN.

In its report, ESPN noted there are “no guarantees (the schedule) can finish by then.” That’s because the league’s schedule-makers literally work all the way up to the deadline … even though, technically, no such deadline exists.

The NFL surely would prefer to release the 2017 regular-season schedule that week, as it’s the week before the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday, April 27.

The NFL released the 2017 preseason schedule Monday, April 10.

Westbrook supporters can point to him making history with numbers that we have always seen as spectacular, and say that he should win MVP because he did something that we have always considered good and difficult, and he did it for an entire season. And his team is only eight wins worse than when it had the second-best player in the league.

In order for supporters of the other MVP candidates to make a case for their choice, they have to minimize the triple-double. What was once great, no longer is. The Rockets tweeted a subliminal shot at Westbrook, suggesting that triple-doubles don’t matter compared to wins, even though they are the first to celebrate when Harden does get a triple-double.

The Mystics were one of the league’s better shooting teams in 2016, so adding Walker-Kimbrough could potentially make Washington the league’s best when it comes to perimeter shooting. After Cheap Volleyball Jerseys For Women leading the NCAA in three-point shooting percentage in 2015, Walker-Kimbrough scored 18.8 points Denver Broncos Cheap Jerseys per game in 2016, shooting .450 from beyond the arc.

Scott Van Pelt casually completed a Maryland student fundraiser while playing golf

The University of Maryland’s sports radio station was facing a difficult position. It needed to raise $8,000 to increase their budget for coverage of Maryland away games for future student broadcasters, and with just over 24 hours to go they were $1,255 short of their goal. Then ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt came to the rescue in the most chill way possible.

“I think the direction with our team is that he would be better off somewhere else.” — Phil Jackson in New York Knicks end of season press conference
After all the tension within the Knicks this year, it is now clear that the Knicks will try to trade Anthony in the offseason. Anthony quickly responded on Instagram with a post that was surely directed to Phil Jackson’s comments.

The post was liked by several players, including LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Blake Griffin. But perhaps most notable was Anthony’s teammate, Porzingis.

Porzingis is arguably the best thing the Knicks China Cheap Jerseys have going for them right now, and having your young star unhappy going into the offseason is never good. In fact, it’s really bad for the Knicks. Maybe they need to realize their problem is Phil Jackson.

Should Humphrey be gone, Ohio State’s Gareon Conley would be Cheap Yankees Jerseys another option. Humphrey is a player who can start right away and help upgrade a defense that allowed the most passing yards last season. Miami tight end David Njoku is another possibility as the Saints need to upgrade there and get Drew Brees another weapon.

we know it’s tough to catch up on everything happening in the baseball world each morning

Since the early signing period is purely optional, not all of the big names will sign in December. We’ll still see dozens of blue chips and a handful of top-15 players on the board until February’s NSD, though perhaps not quite as many as before.

Listen, we know it’s tough to catch up on everything happening in the baseball world each morning. There are all kinds of stories, rumors, game coverage, and Vines of dudes getting hit in the beans every day. Trying to find all of it while on your way to work or sitting at your desk just isn’t easy. It’s OK, though. We’re going to do the heavy lifting for you each morning and find the things you need to see from within the SB Nation baseball network, as well as from elsewhere. Please hold your applause until the end, or at least until after you subscribe to the newsletter.

If the Masters doesn’t start until the back nine on Sunday, as conventional wisdom has it, someone forgot to drop that well-known bit of golf knowledge on Sergio Garcia.

Because the 37-year-old Spaniard, who is looking to break an 0-fer-73 major-less drought, certainly got it going in his first nine holes. Garcia had a birdie-par-birdie start to the final round at Augusta and made the turn at 2-under 34 to get to 8-under for the week and in a tie with playing partner and 54-hole co-leader Justin Rose.

If Garcia goes on to win, he may look back at No. 7 as critical to his triumph. That’s where he hit his tee shot into the woods, his second into a green-side bunker, and eked out a huge par-saving sandy — his 16th straight bogey-free hole — while Rose made birdie. Just like Cheap San Francisco Giants Jerseys that, Sergio’s two-shot cushion was down to one.

Terrelle Pyror’s injury, performance concerns Raiders

The Oakland Raiders are worried about Terrelle Pryor.

“It wasn’t something that we thought was going to be a big factor going into the game. But, obviously, it was a factor,” Allen told reporters, per the Bay Area News Group.
Something even more alarming has been Pryor’s play over the past month. The former Ohio State star has been a disaster in the last four games, throwing eight interceptions while finding the end zone once.

Overall, Pryor has thrown for 1,559 yards with a 58.9 completion percentage and only five touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He has also run for a team-leading 504 yards.

Lets be honest right off the bat, the Bengals had no business having a shot to win that game Sunday anyway. Their quarterback Andy Dalton appeared to be channeling Trent Dilfer during his Bucs years for most of the game. Their defense played well most of the day, but still gave up two touchdowns to one of the worst, most off-kilter offenses in the league right now. The only reason Bernard was even in position to have that epic brain fart was because the Ravens defensive backs thought it would be fun to play volleyball and set the football rather than spike it on the last play of the game. A.J. Green caught what was probably his easiest touchdown of his career.

And yet, there they were. Trying to convert a fourth-and-2 from the Ravens 33-yard line, Bernard caught a little swing pass to the right side of the line. Turns out that was probably not a good play call because Ravens safety James Ihedigbo was right in Bernard’s face as he caught Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike the Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping ball. The Bengals aren’t going to get the first down, which means it will probably be the Ravens ball around their own 35 or so, not really a big deal.

This is where the brain fart comes in.

NFL roster moves: Michael Huff works out with Cowboys and more news

Free-agent safety Michael Huff is working out for the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday. A former first-round pick with the Oakland Raiders, Huff started the season with the Baltimore Ravens before being waived a couple weeks ago. He had a workout with the Cincinnati Bengals last week. The Cowboys are looking for any kind of help for their league-worst passing defense.

Kubiak collapsed on the sidelines during Houston’s Week 9 game on his way into the locker room at halftime. He was transported to a local hospital, where he underwent treatment similar to what is given to stroke sufferers. Kubiak was said to have suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA). He was released from the hospital later in the week, but did not return to the team immediately. Defensive Cheap NFL Jerseys From China coordinator Wade Phillips served as the interim coach with Kubiak rejoining the team on Monday.

He worked a half day on Monday and is Cheap NFL Jerseys Good Quality reportedly slowly increasing his workload during the week, leading up to Sunday’s game against Oakland. Tim of Battle Red Blog wrote Kubiak’s return would be a welcome sight at Reliant Stadium:

Regardless of how you feel about the ongoing horror that is Cheap NFL Jerseys Good Quality the Texans’ 2017 campaign, it’ll be great to see Kubes back on the sidelines on Sunday. I have no doubt the crowd at Reliant Stadium will give him a warm welcome back.

Matt Hasselbeck says he wants to spend one more year backing up Andrew Luck in Indianapolis then hang up his cleats.

The 38-year old Hasselbeck, who is best known for his nine-year stint as the Seattle Seahawks’ starting quarterback, told FOX Sports that he plans to retire following the 2014 season.

Vick served as the emergency quarterback last Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, suffering a hamstring injury the game before against the Giants. Foles threw for three touchdowns Baseball Jerseys For Sale and ran in another in the 31-20 win over the Bucs in Tampa Bay, with Vick missing his twelfth game since 2010.

One player that Foles won’t have to face on Sunday is Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware, who is inactive for the first time in his nine-year career. Ware suffered a quad injury early in last week’s win over the Washington Redskins and did not return, and has been dealing with a neck injury for most of the season.

Ware was limited last season due to shoulder and neck injuries and required multiple surgeries in the offseason. Kyle Wilber, who had a strip-sack and fumble recovery last week, will start in place of Ware against the Eagles.

The full list of inactives for each team can be found here.

Buffalo – EJ Manuel will be back this season. In the meantime, Doug Marrone has found a steady replacement in Thad Lewis. It helps to have a backup who can run, adding a wrinkle to what defenses have to defend.

Minnesota – Josh Freeman takes over for the limp-armed combo of Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel. It’s the one team that may be better off than it was.

Philadelphia – Vick will be back in the fold soon. We’ll see just how injured Nick Foles is. Matt Barkley isn’t ideal, but with LeSean McCoy and Chip Kelly having a pretty high aptitude for working with, or around, his players, the Best Cheap Jerseys From China Eagles can get by in a forgettable NFC East.

New England remains atop the AFC East, but its lead is much smaller after the Patriots lost to the Jets on Sunday. If the Patriots had come away with the win, they would have had a three-game lead over New York. Instead, the Jets are one game back at 4-3. Miami is still in contention, but has now lost three straight after a 3-0 start. Buffalo has lost multiple close games this season and is 3-4 despite having just a minus-19 point differential.

The Jaguars have not won a game, I realize that, but Baseball Jerseys Wholesale they weren’t helped at all by some shoddy officiating on Sunday in their game against the Chargers. There were several blown calls and several calls that should’ve been made but weren’t in my opinion and I started to wonder if that was a Pac-12 crew reffing the game.

The most egregious blown call of all occurred with around 7:36 left in the third quarter. Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught a shovel pass inside the Jaguars’ 5-yard line and appeared to have a shot at scoring. Instead the Jaguars tackled him, ripped the ball out before he hit the ground and their rookie safety Johnathan Cyprien clearly recovered it.

Now from the side view it was hard to see when the ball came out but on the broadcast they showed the end zone view which left no doubt that it was in fact a fumble. At the time the Jaguars were trailing 14-3 and it would have been a huge momentum swing for them.

This play is beautiful in its simplicity. Make all your reads like a good quarterback, scan the field from touchdown to check down, then find the open man. It’s a great idea in theory, except when your running back is SITTING ON THE GROUND when you elect to throw the ball to him.

Brandon Weeden is at his most Weeden in this play. A seemingly incomprehensible quarterback that Best Place To Buy Cheap Jerseys can find players down field in tight windows on one down, then choose to throw to a guy who’s completely out of play.

The Jets beat the Patriots on Sunday with a 42-yard field goal in overtime by Nick Folk, but that attempt was only possible thanks to a 15-yard penalty on New England’s Chris Jones. On the same play, Folk missed a 56-yard field goal attempt.

Wake has 2.5 sacks on the season after Basketball Jerseys missing one game this season due to injury. He leads to Dolphins in sacks along with Olivier Vernon, making his presences today vital against the Bills. It will be interesting to see how Miami deals with running back C.J. Spiller, who’s active. The Dolphins have the defense to keep him contained, but this job will be considerably more difficult without middle linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who is out of today’s game.

Buffalo’s passing game rests on the shoulders of Thad Lewis, making his second start for the Bills. There isn’t a safety net if Lewis falters in his return to South Florida, as newly-signed quarterback Matt Flynn is inactive this week. This is presumably a byproduct of being signed on Wednesday and still learning the Bills’ offense.

Hall was injured in the first quarter of Sunday’s game while covering Lions’ wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Initially called an “Achilles injury”, its severity is as yet unconfirmed. With Hall out of the lineup Johnson caught nine passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns.

If Hall is lost for the season it would cause a huge weakness for Cincinnati’s secondary. Entering Sunday’s game he totaled 20 tackles, seven passes defended and one interception, but more importantly he was a much-needed veteran presence for the defense.

It’s likely Adam Jones will move into the starting role if Hall is unable to play. Jones would start across from Terence Newman who suffered an injury scare in practice but was able to play in Sunday’s game. Jones Basketball Jerseys Cheap has amassed 25 tackles and an interception in seven games this season and started five games for Cincinnati in 2012.

Cleveland makes roster moves
The Cleveland Browns announced several roster moves on Friday. The team waived running back Bobby Rainey and placed defensive back Josh Aubrey on injured reserve. The team announced the promotion of wide receiver Tori Gurley and defensive back Julian Posey to the active roster.

Blackmon expects to play
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon says Basketball Jerseys Custom that he expects to play on Sunday, despite his hamstring injury. Blackmon is officially listed as questionable. Blackmon has had a monster two weeks, catching 19 passes for 326 yards, more than any receiver over that span. He’s the lone bright spot on the Jacksonville offense.

Locker could return soon
Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker could make his return this week when the team takes on the San Francisco 49ers. He was originally expected to take four or five weeks to return from a hip/knee injury, but the poor play of Ryan Fitzpatrick might be forcing Locker to come back sooner than originally anticipated.

Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reported that Locker was still wearing a knee brace and sporting a minor limp when he walked Friday, so it’s clear that Locker still isn’t quite 100 percent. That said, Munchak made a point to emphasize that the Titans were not trying to gain an advantage by waiting to name a starter. He said that the team really doesn’t know who will play at this point.

When Locker was cleared for contact earlier this week, the folks at Titans blog Music City Miracles projected Locker to sit and rest with the team’s bye week looming. The Titans need every potential win they can get if they hope to make the playoffs, however, and may be pushing Locker to play as a result.

Locker threw six touchdowns to zero Basketball Jerseys For Sale interceptions in four games before being sidelined by injury. Fitzpatrick has thrown two touchdowns to four interceptions in two and a half games since.

Revis exclusively aligned on the left side of the field (on outside) for the entire game and didn’t move around the formation at all (so he did not match up to the Eagles best WR for the whole game) – it is surprising that the Buccaneers do not ask Revis to matchup with their opponents best WR (alone on his island) and rotate coverage to help other defenders.

Sheridan’s heard enough, and he invited armchair defensive coordinators to do better. One warning, prospective coordinators, the job involves long days.

Via Jenna Laine at Sports Talk Florida:

“What I want to invite them to do is join us. I get here about 5:20 [a.m.] every single morning, and they’re more than welcome to hang around here until about 11:00 [p.m.] for the first four nights of the week and they can help us put the whole game plan together.

After Suh, the three biggest fines of the week were given to Redskins linebacker Perry Riley, Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins and Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, who each drew $15,750 fines from the league. Riley was penalized for a hit that was a little high and a little late on Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, while Jenkins drew a flag for helmet-to-helmet contact with Patriots wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins.

Finley’s fine came for a block of Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs that was deemed an Best Place To Get Cheap Jerseys example of “unnecessarily striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area.” Finley wasn’t pleased:

The remainder of the Week 6 fines came from Sunday’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals. Five players earned fines, including $15,750 for 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis’ clipping penalty, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area

Cardinals defenders Alameda Ta’amu and Tyrann Mathieu each drew $10,000 fines in the game, while 49ers guard Alex Boone and Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett were Best Quality Cheap Jerseys  each issued $7,875 fines.
