Amari Cooper is staying in Oakland for the foreseeable future.

The Raiders on Monday announced they have exercised the fifth-year option on the wide receiver, extending his contract through the 2019 season.

The decision comes as no surprise, as coach Jon Gruden previously told reporters that Cooper would play a key role in Oakland’s offense.

When he was in jail, I went to visit him, and he wasn’t feeling good. You could tell he was trying to hold on, Embiid said after scoring 19 points and 12 rebounds in Philadelphia’s win. So to be here and to kind of provide this opportunity for him because he’s been following us, for him to come to this type of game, this was a close-out game and we got the win, I was just happy. I got the news earlier from Michael Rubin, and I was happy for him. They’ve been working on it for months now.

Simmons said Mill’s presence was meaningful to the team and the city.

It’s just having someone that looks out for us, all of us here, the point guard said.

Here are the picks for each team through all seven rounds of this year’s draft.

Boyd (1-1) gave up four runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. He had allowed just three runs in his first three starts and 19 1/3 innings.

Boyd Womens Radim Vrbata Jersey was feeling ill earlier in the day but said that was not an excuse for his poor performance.

I just got out of my game plan a little bit and just unfortunately, put my team in a hole with not going deep and whatnot, Boyd said.

Elias Diaz had three hits and Starling Marte drove in two runs for the Pirates.

Leonys Martin hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning to get the Tigers within 4-3. He also led off the opener with a homer.

After Osuna put the Pirates ahead 3-0, Candelario tripled and scored on Castellanos’ single in the fourth. Pittsburgh got the run back in the bottom of the inning when Marte drew a bases-loaded walk, which ended Boyd’s night.

Joe Haden Jersey planning a big 2018, thanks to a healthy offseason of work

Steelers cornerback Joe Haden went to back-to-back Pro Bowls for the Browns in 2013 and 2014, but since then he’s struggled through injuries and hasn’t been the same player. This year, he believe the Joe Haden of old will be back.

Rosen said he was excited to learn from the two veteran quarterbacks currently on the Cardinals’ roster, Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon.

I’m really happy it happened, he said. I’m glad the Cardinals came up. I really think it’s a match made in heaven.This wasn’t the first time the Giants had a decision to make: can’t-miss running back or enticing quarterback. They made the same choice 53 years ago that they made Thursday night. Then Chris Owings Authentic Jersey it was Auburn’s Tucker Frederickson, now Penn State’s Saquon Barkley.

It worked out pretty well for the Jets when the Giants passed on a QB from Alabama named Joe Willie Namath. Jets fans have to hope history can repeat itself with Sam Darnold.

As a result, a public figure making major changes to their social media profile can lead to a lot of speculation about what it means. That was the case with Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones on Monday.

Jones made his Twitter account private and scrubbed his Instagram profile of pictures of him in Falcons gear, which led plenty of people to wonder if there was some connection between the latter move and his absence from the first week-plus of the team’s voluntary offseason program.

Elite Mens Saku Koivu Jersey The Twitter account has returned and multiple reports say that Jones was just looking for a fresh start for his online profiles rather than sending a message about his desire to leave the Falcons. Jones also recently discussed the perils of putting too much stock in social media with Alabama players.

Elite Youth Terrell Davis Jersey Jones hasn’t made any public comment about his change in social media strategy and if there’s a larger point beyond it all or not.

After passing on quarterbacks in recent years, mostly notably Carson Wentz in 2016, the Browns opted for Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Oklahoma. Mayfield will likely sit for at least a year behind newcomer Tyrod Taylor before trying to return this once proud franchise to relevance.

Will Bills or Dolphins jump Jets for Mayfield?

It’s been nearly a month since PFT explained that the league insiders suspect that the Jets will be taking quarterback Baker Mayfield with the third overall pick in the draft. With the selection process only four days away, the lingering belief that the Jets will make a beeline for Mayfield raises a separate question: Will the Bills or the Dolphins make a move to No. 2 with the Giants in order to grab him first?

The Bills have been trying in recent weeks to push back against the widespread belief that the Bills are destined to move into the top five to pick a quarterback, possibly because they realize that making that move will require major draft capital. Once the Giants are on the clock, however, it will be time for the Bills and Giants to move toward their bottom-line positions, and either a deal will happen or it won’t. (Duh.)

The Knicks have made some questionable hirings throughout their 21st century malaise — most a result of bringing in former players — so it wouldn’t be that ridiculous for them to at least consider hiring World Peace, if he were serious. It’s unlikely, of course, and given his humorous nature on social media, World Peace is almost certainly kidding. But at least he has the right basic principles in mind.

It’s a really good question.

Whether we’re talking about Los Angeles’ ability to bring pressure up front, or the team’s insane trio of defensive backs now that Talib and Peters have joined Robey-Coleman, Lamarcus Joyner and John Johnson III in the backfield, it’s going to take some very precise execution from opposing offenses to make anything happen through the air.

The Heat brought back Wade for nights just like this. He’s no longer quick enough to earn his old nickname, Flash. If anything, his value now is in settling the team, slowing things down and mentoring the Heat’s younger players.

“He’s still one of the best players, but he slows everyone down,” Heat forward Josh Richardson said. “When he has the ball, it’s like he has his own pace. He never gets sped up … I hope I get to that point one day.”

Tyrod Taylor Jersey looking forward to leading the guys

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Tuesday that the team has not settled on a choice for the first overall pick in next week’s draft and that the consensus top four quarterbacks on the board remain under consideration at this point in the process.
Men's Majestic New York Mets #11 Norichika Aoki Replica White Home Cool Base MLB Jersey
Jackson also called Tyrod Taylor the team’s starter at quarterback, although how long he holds that title will likely have something to do with who the team selects in the draft. Temporary or not, Taylor said Tuesday that he’s embracing all that comes with the job.

Taylor reported for the first day of offseason work at 6 a.m. on Monday in order to shake as many hands as possible and introduce myself to guys I don’t know as he moves to take a leadership role on his new team.

Elite Womens Colin Kaepernick Jersey Mara’s decree that Beckham is not untouchable sparked at least one team 鈥?the Rams 鈥?to make an inquiry. It did not get very far.

It certainly is a conversation we would have to have if somebody overwhelms us, yes, Mara said. There’s no harm in having people call.

Meanwhile, the new head coach, Pat Shurmur, is proceeding as if he will be working with Beckham. Shurmur was in Los Angeles last week, part of the Giants’ contingent scouting quarterbacks Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold, and had a sit-down with Beckham, who spends his offseasons in L.A.

There was some question about how comfortable Howard was earlier this month. Visitors to Howard’s Instagram page in early April found all pictures of him in a Bears uniform had been removed from the page, but they’ve since been restored and Howard claimed ignorance about the changes when asked on Tuesday.
Elite Womens Cole Cassels Jersey
Curious as Authentic Linus Ullmark Jersey the case of the vanishing and reappearing photos may be, Howard remains in Chicago and it seems more likely than not that he’ll continue to call the city home for the rest of 2018.

Gentry says he relishes having someone who can lead the team in the way Rondo can. I know it’s like an old clich锟? but it really is like having an extra assistant coach.

Trail Blazers: Among the challenges for the Blazers in this first-round series, none ranks higher than defending Davis. Terry Stotts said that he would begin the series with Jusuf Nurkic, who did not see much time on Davis in the regular season, on the All-Star big man.

Wade contributed with baskets, assists and free throws over the final 4 minutes to close out the win.

We played Game 1 like a regular-season game and tonight was a playoff game, Wade said.

Simmons, who had a triple-double in the opener, led the Sixers with 24 points and Saric had 23.

I hate this feeling but maybe it’s a good reminder for everybody for next game to lock in, Simmons said.

We want to ensure that players and their families receive the benefits they deserve, attorney Brad Karp said in a statement released by the NFL on Friday. Fraud threatens the integrity of the settlement and the prompt payment of legitimate claims. There is significant evidence of fraudulent claims being advanced by unscrupulous doctors, lawyers and even players. The appointment of a Special Investigator was specifically contemplated in the agreement, and will provide important additional tools to assist the independent, court-appointed administrators in identifying fraudulent claims and related misconduct.

Mens Tomas Hertl Jersey It’s a strong allegation, suggesting not simply that former players are accidentally under the impression that they have one of the qualifying conditions but that they are deliberately trying to fall within the confines of the concussion settlement 鈥?and that others are aiding and abetting the process.

The court papers submitted in connection with the request for a Special Investigator include specific allegations of fraud. The league contends that one law firm representing over 100 former players coached them on the procedure for answering questions during neuropsychological evaluations and directed at least one retired player to show up for his evaluation hungover and on Valium. The league also claims that a firm representing more than 50 class members secured a higher fee if the former players were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (which results in a higher recovery under the concussion settlement), and that virtually all of Mario Lemieux Youth jersey those players were evaluated by a pediatric neurologist, who diagnosed 75 percent of them with Alzheimer’s.

Bucks’ Eric Bledsoe has no time for Celtics’ Terry Rozier Jersey

Despite the fact his team has lost the first two games to the Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe stoked the intensity for the rest of the series when asked if he took the matchup with Celtics guard Terry Rozier personally.
Nike NFL Paul Krause Pink Jersey Women's Limited: #22 Minnesota Vikings Rush Fashion
Celtics guard Marcus Smart is with the team for its playoff series against Milwaukee to honor the wishes of his mother, Camellia, who told her son last week she’s been diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. Smart said his mother told him to be with his squad.

For the second game in a row, Rozier torched the Bucks to the tune of 23 points, adding 8 assists and 3 rebounds Tuesday. Rozier, who scored 23 points in a Game 1 win and shook off Bledsoe near the end of regulation to give the Celtics a three-point lead, has not turned the ball over once in 78 minutes Joe Flacco Youth jersey of postseason play this year. When told of Bledsoe’s comments by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, Rozier wanted no part of a back-and-forth between point guards.

Overall, Lue said that the film session didn’t make Game 1 seem like such a nightmare.

Emmanuel Sanders Mens Jersey We just got to do a better job offensively scoring the basketball and taking care of the basketball, Lue said. We can’t give up 21 points in transition. That’s where they thrive. If we can take those little easy points away, I think we’ll be fine.

Or, as Rodney Hood put it: We’ll play a lot better, I know. We can’t play any worse than we did.

Devin Hester Mens Jersey Although Davis was his usual double-double self (22 points, 13 rebounds) and Rajon Rondo finished an assist away from a triple-double (16 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists) in another strong playoff performance, this night belonged to Holiday. When the Blazers were able to get their sellout crowd going, it was Holiday to whom Gentry turned to slow down the Pelicans’ usual fast pace and ensure a good shot.

He’s so underrated as a guard that can do things on the floor, Gentry said. He can get to the basket against just about anybody there is, and his outside shot has really improved.

Taking advantage of New Orleans’ strong floor spacing, Holiday got wherever he wanted off the pick-and-roll, repeatedly reaching the paint to either finish himself or find an open teammate. According to ESPN Stats & Information tracking, Holiday’s 19 drives yielded 14 points on 7-of-12 shooting by himself and seven points on 3-of-4 shooting by teammates. Holiday scored 20 of his 33 points in the restricted area, shooting 10-of-14 on those attempts, and he handed out nine assists.

The Rams are not hiding their Odell Beckham desire.

“Oh yeah, that’s my guy,” star running back Todd Gurley told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday night at a Roc Nation event.

The Rams are the one team that have reportedly talked to the Giants about their interest in Beckham, after trade rumors swirled all week at the NFL owners’ meetings. Giants co-owner John Mara has made it clear that the Giants do not want to trade Beckham, but he has also said no one is “untouchable.”

I used to write letters to Jim McKay in college. “Wide World of Sports” was this travelogue, really, that introduced us to sports and it introduced us to parts of the world that we had never seen before. And no one was a bigger tour guide than Mr. McKay.

His style and command and presence of a studio was such an incredible sight to see. There was an energy about him and a nose for the storyline. He did play-by-play with a studio mentality, knowing what the bigger picture was. He could go beyond the game, which I think a lot of people need to learn. He’s one of the all-timers in being able to frame a moment.

“She clearly didn’t hear what I said, and immediately screamed at the top of her lungs, ‘She called me a Jew!’” Kent Cooke told Page Six.

Kent Cooke has filed a counter-claim against Haberkorn, a personal injury attorney, as she broke her fingers when she fell during the scuffle.

Colin Kaepernick Jersey Still in Mix After Austin Davis’ New Contract

The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly not ruled out signing Colin Kaepernick despite bringing back backup quarterback Austin Davis.
Limited Womens Garrett Grayson Jersey Limited Youth Sam Martin Olive/USA Flag Jersey: NFL Nike Detroit Lions #6 2017 Salute to Service
According to Draft Analyst’s聽Tony Pauline, Goedert posted a聽35-inch vertical, 10’1 broad jump, 6.87 three-cone and 4.06 short shuttle at his pro day while dealing with a sore hamstring. Each of those numbers would have qualified as top-four performances at the combine among tight ends.聽

Goedert is an automatic mismatch in any offense with the potential to add another dimension in Jacksonville’s scheme.

First, the running back and interior linemen classes are loaded, and the Colts could land very good prospects at each position later in the process. Second, general manager Chris Ballard worked in the Chicago Bears scouting department as the organization built a defense around Brian Urlacher (No. 9 overall in 2000). Third, new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus is a Rod Marinelli disciple, and the middle linebacker is crucial to his system’s success.聽

Penn State’s Saquon Barkley may be the most talented prospect in this year’s class regardless of position. Unfortunately for him, position value matters. Furthermore, the incoming running back group is stacked.聽

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ patience is rewarded with Barkley sliding to the seventh overall pick.聽

To little surprise, the man who has been hired to prove the innocence of Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett is proclaiming Bennett’s innocence.

He just didn’t do it, lawyer Rusty Hardin told NBC Sports Philadelphia on Monday night. I strongly feel that way and not just because it’s totally inconsistent with his whole history and not just because he says he didn’t. I’ve talked to other witnesses. We’ve talked to other witnesses who also didn’t see anything.

Bennett is accused of shoving and injuring an elderly, paraplegic female who was working at Super Bowl LI, at a time when Bennett was trying to get to the field to celebrate with his brother, Martellus, who had just won a championship with the Patriots.

While Harrison is returning on the offensive line, the team is still looking into potential additions to the defense. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports linebacker Neville Hewitt was in for a visit. Hewitt played every game for the Dolphins in 2015 and 2016, but saw action in just six games last season.

The Eagles have quarterback Nick Foles under contract for another year, and it looks like he’ll remain under contract with the Eagles for another year.

We know what we have, Eagles executive V.P. of football operations Howie Roseman told reporters on Monday, via Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. And that allows us the ability to feel very good about the most important position in sports. For us to get rid of something like that, that’s going to be a high price tag.

At Cowboys event, Darren Woodson Jersey rips NFL’s new lowering the head rule

The rule could include a running back who is going through a hole and lowers his head. There is no way you can play football like that. That’s why I think they’re going to back this rule down a little bit and the wording is going to change a little bit because you can’t play a game in the National Football League without lowering your head. If you’re running the football, or you’re making a hit as a defender, your natural reaction is to pull your head down. Maybe not pull down all the way to make contact with the top of your head, but to pull down your head to brace yourself. That’s the natural Koa Misi Jersey reaction.

Alec Martinez scored twice and Jonathan Quick made 14 saves for the Kings, who will play Vegas in the first round of the playoffs after finishing as the first wild card from the Western Conference.

Benn made it 2-0 at 8:40, knocking the puck out of mid-air by swinging his stick like a baseball bat from close range.

Benn scored his second at 11:35 to put the Stars up 3-0. Benn tapped the puck into an open net after defenseman Oscar Fantenberg lost the puck in his own zone.

You can’t blame our goalie on any of them. I think if you had two goalies in the net you might not get a save there because we had full possession of the puck on three of those plays, Kings coach John Stevens said.
