Phoenix Suns acquire Elfrid Payton from Orlando Magic

The Phoenix Suns have completed a trade to acquire point guard Elfrid Payton from the Orlando Magic in exchange for a 2018 second-round pick via Memphis. “We are excited to add a player of Elfrid’s caliber to our young core,” said Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough. “Elfrid is an athletic point guard who has good size, length and a feel for the game. We think he’ll be a great fit with our team and we look forward to seeing him in a Suns uniform.” In his fourth NBA season, Payton is averaging a career-high 13.0 points shooting career bests of 52.0 percent from the field (23rd in the NBA) and 37.3 percent from three-point range. In addition, he is averaging 6.3 assists (14th in the NBA), 4.0 rebounds and 1.45 steals (24th in the NBA) in 44 games. Payton is one of just three players in the NBA this season…

Cowboys, Titans, Chargers headline NFL bubble teams in 2017

Fournette runs with a ferocity and power few backs can muster, lowering his shoulder to put a boom on every defender willing to attempt a tackle. The Tennessee Titans just got done facing one batter-ram back in Marshawn Lynch last week — who plowed over Titans’ 305-pound Jurrell Casey on one run — and face Fournette this week. Davis has been playing the role of X receiver alongside Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker, with the latter likely taking Davis’ reps while the rookie is away. Davis will also suffer the results of missing time and practice with quarterback Marcus Mariota, delaying their acclimation. One look at Davis’ college film tells you everything you need to know about why Tennessee selected him fifth overall. When we’ll see that on an NFL field remains to be determined. The Titans spent the offseason compiling enhanced weaponry for Mariota’s passing attack, adding first-round pick…

Sports – Their Effects On My Life

JPP is playing on a one-year $10 million prove-it deal. Sunday’s game in which he compiled four QB hits, seven tackles, three sacks, a fumble return for a TD and four tackles for loss displayed he can still be a difference-maker. The pass rusher is not worried about his contract situation saying, “that will take care of itself.” At times last year, JPP was in a position to make plays, but couldn’t wrap up a ball carrier. Now he’s making those plays we were used to seeing before the accident. The pass rusher believes he can show overcoming a physical hardship to excel in the NFL is possible. The Redskins’ collapse down the stretch — losing four of their last six games — will lead to an offseason of speculation about quarterback Kirk Cousins’ future. In a big spot, Cousins flopped, throwing two interceptions (including one on a potential game-winning…

Texans WR Will Fuller breaks his collarbone in practice

cheap jerseys Osweiler already had a good feeling about the Texans. However, he also understood that, because of timing, he’d never have a chance to meet with any of the team’s decision makers before potentially signing a deal. So he grinned as O’Brien pushed his team in the midst of grueling practices. He nodded in approval when the coach emphasized his lofty expectations. This was critical research for a player who already had quizzed former Texans and diligently studied the Houston offense because, as Osweiler recently said, “There was definitely a lot of faith involved in this.” Faith truly is the operative word when assessing Osweiler’s presence in Houston. The Texans are betting a player who started all of seven games in four NFL seasons can be the answer to the endless quarterback problems that have plagued them for years. Osweiler is gambling that his career is better off with…

New England Patriots will visit White House on April 19

cheap jerseys He was barred from this year’s NFL Scouting Combine under a conduct policy, but has made the rounds since then, meeting with the Broncos, Raiders and Chargers, among other clubs. Lions GM Bob Quinn said at the combine that Mixon was on Detroit’s draft board. Per the Herald, Patriots owner Robert Kraft declined to address Mixon specifically this week, but said his policy on domestic violence goes back to 1996, when he demanded a Patriots draft pick, Christian Peter, be released days after the draft when he learned of domestic-violence allegations against Peter.

Vance Joseph insists Broncos team ‘isn’t broken’

wholesale jerseys Measuring the best pass-rushing defenses has long been a challenge for NFL analysts across the field. Obviously, there is the simple counting of sacks, but that leaves out the plays in which pressure and disruption rain down on the quarterback, which also carry great importance even if the defenders don’t get home. Many analytics sites do excellent work charting hours of game film to record and tally instances where they believe a quarterback is under pressure. However, with the Next Gen Stats data gleaned from the tracking chips in the players’ shoulder pads, we are now able to objectively measure just how far away opposing pass rushers are from the quarterback when they look to deliver their passes. In the latest edition of the Next Gen Stats rankings, we’ll reveal who were the Top-10 teams at creating pressure by their pass rushers’ average raw yards of distance from…

Cleveland Browns release veteran QB Josh McCown

Colquitt joined the Browns in 2016 on a single-year deal following his release from the Denver Broncos and after the Browns traded former punter Andy Lee to Carolina. He set a team single-season record with a net average of 40.31 yards and he made 22 punts inside the 20-yard line. “I am thrilled,” Colquitt said per the team’s official site. “My family couldn’t be happier. We love the organization and the fans. From Jimmy and Dee Haslam to Sashi (Brown) to the coaching staff with Hue (Jackson) and of course Tabes (Chris Tabor), this is a great place to work. The Browns are a class act. I want to thank the organization for giving me this opportunity.” But the Browns were in no hurry to trade picks in last year’s draft, and they certainly had more than enough leverage to do it. Cleveland made 14 draft picks last year, giving…

New England Patriots will visit White House on April 19

cheap jerseys In what would be considered his breakout year in 2016, Gillislee rushed for 577 yards (5.7 yards per carry) and eight total touchdowns. He was only targeted 11 times in the passing game but caught nine of those balls for 50 yards and another score. A former member of the Miami Dolphins, Gillislee was picked 164th overall by the Dolphins in 2013. Gillislee, who is a strong north-and-south runner, defies some expectations. Though he is not on the heavier side for running backs, he packs a strong punch and is relentless in the red zone. He would not be a one-for-one replacement for someone like LeGarrette Blount if Blount’s contractual stalemate with the Patriots continues. Asked about the potential pitfalls facing young players in Las Vegas due to the Raiders’ future relocation, Goodell pointed to the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. “I think we have an obligation to do…

Supreme Court ruling on trademarks expected to help Redskins

Scot McCloughan was fired by the Washington Redskins in March, a move that ended a brief run with the team that began with optimism and ended under a cloud of rumors and suspicion. McCloughan is no longer tied to the ‘Skins, so why not do something with what we presume is a sizable amount of team merch? McCloughan’s visual trademark with Washington was a camouflage Redskins cap, and that’s one of the items he’s now put up for auction on eBay. In his opinion for the court, Justice Samuel Alito rejected arguments that trademarks are government speech, not private speech. Alito also said trademarks are not immune from First Amendment protection as part of a government program or subsidy. Tam insisted he was not trying to be offensive, but wanted to transform a derisive term into a statement of pride. The Redskins also contend their name honors American Indians, but…
