Kings beat Oilers for seventh straight win Adrian Peterson Breast Cancer Jersey

Los Angeles Kings center Jeff Carter proved Sunday night that scoring goals is not always about shooting the puck.

Women’s Nike Minnesota Vikings 28 Adrian Peterson Limited Purple Breast Cancer Awareness Jersey Carter scored two goals without taking a shot at Rexall Place, pacing the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-2 win against the Edmonton Oilers.

The Kings’ forward was awarded a goal directed into the net by an Oilers defenseman in the first period and had another bounce in off the back of his leg in the second.

“We had two lucky bounces and they had one,” Kings center Jarret Stoll said. “Those are going to happen. You have to get pucks to the net, and there are so many bodies going to the net in the games these days, that it is going to hit something.”

Alec Martinez and Trevor Lewis also scored for the Kings, who extended their win streak to seven games. Jonathan Quick made 25 saves for Los Angeles.

Ben Scrivens, facing the Kings for the first time since being traded by Los Angeles to Edmonton on Jan. 15, made 46 saves for the Adrian Peterson Breast Cancer Awareness Jersey Oilers. Scrivens stopped 59 shots in a record-breaking shutout performance against the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 29.

“I’m not going to throw my teammates under the bus,” Scrivens said. “We had no quit right up to the last buzzer. They’re a team that generates a lot of shots they throw a lot of pucks and drive the net. I was proud of the way we competed.”

Taylor Hall and Sam Gagner scored for the Oilers. It was the second time they have conceded at least 50 shots in a game this season.

“He [Scrivens] has done it all year, he did it with us too,” Quick said of his former teammate. “I think he is just what this team needed here in Edmonton. He consistently gives you a solid effort and a chance to win every night. We put 50 shots on him and they still had a chance at the end there.

“For a few years now, I think it is an area the Oilers needed improvement, not to knock the goalies they had before. The team defense could be better as well. But Scrivens has really stepped in since he came here and given them a chance to win every night.”

The Kings opened the scoring at 1:36 of the first period when Oilers defenseman Philip Larsen inadvertently kicked the puck into his own net. The goal was awarded to Carter, who had centered the puck.

Edmonton tied the game at 7:24 on a three-way passing play inside the Kings’ zone. Gagner slid the puck up to David Perron just inside the blue line, where he spun and found a streaking Hall with a behind-the-back pass. Hall took the pass and slipped the puck underneath Quick.

Martinez restored the Kings’ lead at 8:49 of the second period on a point shot that found its way through traffic and past Scrivens.

Prior to the goal, Scrivens made a handful of good saves while the Kings increased the pressure in the second period. They went on to outshoot the Oilers 21-14 in the second.

“A couple times we looked at the shot clock and were surprised,” Perron said. “It didn’t feel like we were getting outshot that badly. It felt like we were in the battle. Obviously, it’s tough to go down by three to start the third. But I think our battle level was pretty high throughout the lineup. They’re a good team, they’re experienced and they’ve played a long time together. But I thought we were right there with them for long times in the game.”Women’s Nike Minnesota Vikings 28 Adrian Peterson Limited Dark Grey Breast Cancer Awareness Jersey

Carter increased the Kings’ lead to 3-1 at 10:16, after a rebound bounced off the back of his leg past Scrivens. Carter then set up Lewis at 15:49, increasing The Kings lead to 4-1.

“We’re just not there yet as a group,”Adrian Peterson Breast Cancer Jersey Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. “I thought we competed much harder and much better than the game where we were in L.A. (2-1 overtime loss on Oct. 27). That game seemed so one-sided and it didn’t feel that way.

“I thought our guys were in the battle, they were sticking together they were playing hard. There was no standing around watching them play. We made our mistakes and then they had two [lucky] goals like that. The first one is a heartbreaker. It’s not a good way to start, it goes off a guy’s foot. That gets you down against a team I consider one of the best in the League.”

In the third, the Gagner cut the deficit to 4-2 with his seventh goal of the season at 2:05. While playing 4-on-4, Gagner took a cross-crease pass from Hall at the side of the net and sent a pass across the crease intended for Ryan Smyth. The puck bounced off Kings defenseman Drew Doughty in front and past Quick.

“I thought we competed really hard,” Gagner said. “We had a couple of bad bounces, one off our guy and one off their guy and in. But I thought we competed really hard, we just have to build off that.

“I thought we played all right. If you look at the shot differential you draw conclusions from that, but I didn’t think it was as one sided as the shots suggested. I thought it was one of those games where we battled against that team and we held our own physically. We’re obviously not happy with the result, but we have to move forward.”

The loss snapped the Oilers’ two-game win streak. They’ll play the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night in the first of a four-game road trip.

The Kings conclude their three-game Canadian trip against the Calgary Flames on Monday.

J.J.Watt Texans Jersey Jairus Byrd contacted by St. Louis Rams

Bills J.J.Watt Jersey Youth safety Aaron Williams insists Jairus Byrd wants to return to Buffalo despite the riches awaiting the three-time Pro Bowl selection as one of the most coveted players on the open market.

Byrd J.J.Watt Texans Jersey has obvious connections to the Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but those won’t be the only teams interested in his services.

A person informed of the team’s thinking tells NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that the St. Louis Rams were among the teams that reached out to Byrd’s camp Saturday.

Rapoport calls the Rams’ contact with Byrd “unexpected and interesting.”

With young starters T.J. McDonald and Rodney McLeod returning, the position was not believed to be a high priority. We suspect the Rams envision Byrd as a major playmaking upgrade on McLeod at free safety.

Byrd turned down a J.J.Watt Houston Texans Jersey Bills contract offer that would’ve made him the highest-paid safety for a portion of his deal, according to Rapoport.

If Sam Shields’ lucrative new pact is any indication of the market for Byrd, he’s not going to regret rejecting his former team.

We’ve spent this week preparing for the onslaught.

Free agency kicks off  J.J.Watt Jersey Sale Tuesday, ushering in one of the busiest weeks of the year in the NFL.

One intriguing team to keep an eye on: the Minnesota Vikings.

New J.J.Watt Jersey for Sale coach Mike Zimmer was hired to revamp a defense that leaked yardage and points last season. The Vikings looked nothing like the aggressive unit that Zimmer commanded as the defensive coordinator in Cincinnati, but Minnesota is a good bet to add its share of Bengals this offseason.

“It always helps because of the communication,” Zimmer told reporters on Thursday, per The Star Tribune.

The coach acknowledged “it’s not imperative” to add players who already know his defense, but admitted: “It’d be nice.”J.J.Watt NFL Football Uniform

Free-agent pass rusher Michael Johnson is the most obvious target after playing under Zimmer for the past five seasons. With north of $40 million in salary-cap space, the Vikings have the dough to add him to a suddenly paper-thin defensive line that won’t have Jared Allen back in 2014.

We agree with The 2014 Men’s Nike Houston Texans 99 J.J.Watt Elite Team Color Jersey Star Tribune’s suggestion that Bengals restricted free agent Vincent Rey is another possibility. The Bengals slapped him with the lowest tender, meaning Minnesota would need to float Cincy a draft pick equal to the round Rey was drafted. Thing is, he wasn’t drafted, so the cost would be zero. Rey was a revelation for the Bengals last season and sits out there as a young player with promise.

With Taylor J.J.Watt Football Merchandise Mays, Brandon Ghee and Chris Crocker also set to hit the open market, Minnesota has a chance to stock its defense with players deeply familiar with Zimmer’s scheme. It’s something to watch for when the free-agency carnival gets underway.

Jeff Brian Cushing Jersey Cumberland, Jets reportedly agree on contract

The Brian Cushing Texans Jersey New York Brian Cushing Jersey Jets won’t let Jeff Cumberland wade into the free-agent pool.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported Friday that the veteran tight end has agreed to a three-year deal with the Jets, according to a source.

The Jets love Cumberland’s upside and firmly believe he’ll take the next step in his development. Cumberland erased Kellen Winslow Jr. from the Jets’ game plan as the 2013 season progressed, finishing with 26 catches for 398 yards and a career-best four touchdowns. He’ll turn 27 in May.

Ranked No. 6 in ATL’s tight end free-agent rankings, Cumberland possesses soft hands and familiarity with Geno Smith. It remains very possible the team invests in another tight end, potentially in the middle rounds of the draft.

Bourn’s Houston Texans Brian Cushing Camo Football Jersey stolen-base success rate dropped to 66 percent last year after it stood at 81 percent in the previous seven seasons. His 16.4 percent swinging-strike rate was the highest of his career, and his overall strikeout percentage has risen in each of the past three years. In 2013, Bourn’s walk rate dropped to 7.7 percent after an 8.8 percent rate in the previous seven years.

Mention the increase in strikeouts and the drop in walks and Bourn cracks a smile.

“I always strike out a lot, but I always get my hits,” Bourn said. “I always want to work on dropping my strikeout rate and making my walk rate increase. That’s always a good thing for a leadoff hitter, but for the most part in my past years, I’ve always had a pretty good on-base percentage.

“I’m able to score runs and things like that. It’s nothing new to me, man.Brian Cushing Jersey Sale This is my eighth year. I don’t have to go back and say, ‘Do this and do that.’ I am what I am. I’ll continue to improve and work on things, but I just know I know how to play baseball.”

Brian Cushing Apparel Bourn’s dramatic drop in stolen bases was surprising, but the center fielder cited an unfamiliarity with many of the American League’s pitchers. He said he learns from experience and observation, so he anticipates an increase in that area this season.

Indians manager Terry Francona does not want Bourn to get too wrapped up in just stolen bases.

2014 Men’s Nike Houston Texans 56 Brian Cushing Elite Alternate Battle Red Jersey “I do think they will [increase],” Francona said. “He’s worked so hard. I think his gait is really good. I don’t see him favoring anything. But again, I don’t want to get stuck on looking at a number, because if he’s on base, and he’s scoring runs and he’s disrupting the game, that’s what we’re looking for.”

One aspect of his game that Bourn is working on this spring is bunting for a hit.

“Shhh,” said Bourn, while holding a finger to his lips.

Across the 2007-12 seasons, Brian Cushing NFL Uniform Bourn ranked fourth in the Major Leagues with 62 bunt hits, or an average of 10.3 per year. In his first season with the Indians, who handed him a four-year deal worth $48 million last spring, the center fielder had only four bunt hits, according to STATS Inc.

In Cleveland, I know we have big grass in the infield,” Bourn said. “If I’m able to learn how to deaden that ball [I can take advantage of it.]. … I just wanted to work on it in Spring Training games. I don’t care if they know I’m doing it. Oh well. I still want to do it. If I can do it, and they know I’m doing it, then I know they can’t stop it.”

Bourn Brian Cushing Merchandise just wants to do everything he can to help the Indians play more than one playoff game this season.

“The taste of any little thing you like, you want it again,” Bourn said. “You’re human. It’s natural. Yeah, we want some more of it. It’s no secret.”

Seattle Seahawks’ Adrian Peterson Elite Jersey Michael Bennett to test free agency

Men’s Nike Minnesota Vikings 28 Adrian Peterson Elite Drift Fashion Purple Jersey The Seattle Seahawks planned to re-sign defensive end Michael Bennett after the Super Bowl, but sometimes the best laid plans go awry when free agency nears.

Bennett will test the market instead of re-signing with the Seahawks beforehand, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday. per a source who has spoken to the player. ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the news.

Bennett was Seattle’s best pass rusher last season and is one of the best defensive ends available in a deep market this offseason. (He’s our No. 3 defensive end and our No. 9 player overall.

After he was “forced” to accept a one-year, $5 million contract a season ago because of his concerns about the health of his shoulder, now Bennett is set to cash in huge bucks on the open market. If Bennett leaves, teammate Chris Clemons figures to be safe. Rapoport notes that Seattle has made an offer, so Bennett wouldn’t be choosing free agency unless his camp was confident that a better deal awaits around the corner. The Oakland Raiders and Chicago Bears will wait for Bennett, among others.

Bennett joining his brother Martellus in Men’s Nike Minnesota Vikings 28 Adrian Peterson Elite Away White Football Jersey Chicago would be a great fit.

“Everybody was talking about that probably the game wasn’t going to be played,” Tanaka said through an interpreter. “But I kept my emotions intact, and I was game-ready.”

After a delay of one hour and 26 minutes, the skies cleared and Tanaka was able to turn in an interesting three-inning outing against the Phillies. He allowed a solo Freddy Galvis home run and one other hit, recording a strikeout with no walks, but said that he did not feel at the top of his game.

Asked to explain, Adrian Peterson Elite Jersey Tanaka replied with a smile, “Because I’m human. I just can’t be perfect every single day.”

Tanaka may be a harsher critic than Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who said that he was “very pleased” by what he saw from the right-hander. Tanaka threw 25 of 41 pitches for strikes, recording a swinging strikeout of Chase Utley on a nasty 0-2 splitter.

“Obviously, he understands how the ball felt coming out of his hand better than I did, and the pitches that he made, but it’s a step in the right direction,” Girardi said.

Girardi said that it worked out perfectly that the storms passed and the Yankees and Phillies were able to play; had the game been canceled, the Yankees probably would have had Tanaka throw a soft side session and then bounce back to pitch on Saturday.

“Today could have been [a problem] with the rain delay, because he has a routine, and with a lot of pitchers, your routine gets messed up with a rain delay,” Girardi said. “You’re not exactly sure when it’s going to start.”

Tanaka said that rain delays are uncommon in Japan, where many teams play in domed facilities, but that “it was sort of good practice for me to experience what I experienced today,” because delays will be a reality during the regular season.

He looked sharp in an 11-pitch first inning that ended with the Utley strikeout, and Tanaka pitched out of trouble in the second inning, stranding Marlon Byrd after his one-out double to right-center.  Adrian Peterson Nike Elite Jersey Of the nine outs Tanaka recorded, seven came on the ground.Youth Nike Minnesota Vikings 28 Adrian Peterson Elite Purple Team Color Jersey

“Considering how the wind was blowing today, I thought it would be better to get more groundouts,” Tanaka said. “I think that was good.”

Bill J.J.Watt Texans Jersey O’Brien, Houston Texans interested in Matt Cassel

The free agent quarterback market is as shallow as a plastic kiddie pool.

J.J.Watt Jersey Youth With Michael Vick being the best available talent, teams looking for starting-quality quarterbacks will be hard-pressed to meet expectations. But there are some options for teams looking to add a quality veteran arm, especially as a stopgap.

NFL J.J.Watt Texans Jersey Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Houston Texans have real interest in pursuing Matt Cassel. The quarterback opted out of his contract with the Minnesota Vikings earlier this offseason.

New Texans coach Bill O’Brien was an assistant with the Patriots during J.J.Watt Houston Texans Jersey Cassel’s final two seasons in New England.

Cassel proved he is a capable, yet unspectacular, starting quarterback after taking over for Christian Ponder in 2013. The Vikings’ passing game, while not prolific, became much more proficient under his guidance.

Chasing Cassel makes sense for the Texans, who will need a veteran presence once they dump Matt Schaub’s contract. A reunion with O’Brien also would provide Cassel with his best chance to compete for a starting quarterback job in an offense with which he is familiar.

Interest in the veteran might indicate the Texans aren’t sold on taking a quarterback No. 1 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft and would rather develop one taken in the later rounds while using Cassel as the bridge to that future.

Rapoport also J.J.Watt Jersey for Sale reported that, while it has been assumed Josh McCown would return to the Chicago Bears, the team hasn’t seemed committed to him. Coming off a career season, the veteran quarterback is likely to hit the open market.

Champ Bailey’s Hall of Fame career will not continue in J.J.Watt NFL Football Uniform Denver. The 12-time Pro Bowl pick is being released by the Denver Broncos, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a team source.

The news was first reported by CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.

Bailey met with the Broncos face to face Wednesday, and he wasn’t offered a pay cut to stay after 10 seasons with the team. The Broncos are ready to move on, Rapoport reported, but Bailey wants to keep playing.

That means J.J.Watt Jersey Sale Bailey will hit the free-agent market for the first time.

 2014 Men’s Nike Houston Texans 99 J.J.Watt Elite Team Color Jersey Bailey was a long-time leader for the Broncos, but his production no longer matched his big salary. The move also saves the Broncos about $10 million on the salary cap.

This means J.J.Watt Football Merchandise Denver faces big questions in the secondary, with the team’s best cornerback, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, also a free agent.

Bailey, meanwhile, should get a short-term contract offer after the top tier of free-agent cornerbacks land with their new teams next week.

Posey, Sanchez spur offense against D-backs J.J.Watt Texans Jersey

An J.J.Watt Jersey Youth RBI single by Buster Posey and Hector Sanchez’s two-run single highlighted a four-run, fifth-inning uprising Sunday that lifted the San Francisco Giants to a 5-3 Cactus League triumph over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Arizona starter Wade Miley left the game after four innings with a 2-1 lead. That represented unusual durability for this juncture of the spring, but it was necessary because Miley is expected to pitch one of the D-backs’ pair of regular-season games March 22-23 against the Dodgers in Australia.J.J.Watt Houston Texans Jersey Pablo Sandoval’s first-inning bloop single drove in Posey to account for San Francisco’s lone run off Miley.

The J.J.Watt Football Merchandise D-backs tied the game in the fifth on Miguel Montero’s RBI single and then went ahead on Gerardo Parra’s sacrifice fly. The Giants then broke through against reliever Brad Ziegler in the bottom of the inning, which began with singles by Juan Perez and Angel Pagan. Mark Minicozzi grounded into a forceout before Posey’s second hit brought home Pagan. After Hunter Pence’s groundout scored Minicozzi, Sandoval walked to set up Sanchez’s two-run single to right.

In his first competitive action for the Giants, starter J.J.Watt Jersey Sale Tim Hudson worked two hitless innings and struck out a batter. The right-hander awkwardly covered first base — the same play on which he fractured his right ankle last July 24 — on Eric Chavez’s second-inning grounder that was wide of the bag. Hudson let first baseman Brandon Belt’s catchable throw go by. But J.J.Watt Jersey for Sale Chavez was erased on an inning-ending double-play grounder, which prompted Hudson to cover first properly.

Up next: Monday will begin with a 10 a.m. MT “B” game against the Cubs in Mesa. The Giants need to provide innings for their pitchers, especially younger ones such as Kyle Crick, the top prospect who’s expected to appear in the morning contest. In the regularly scheduled game at Scottsdale, Tim Lincecum will make his Cactus League debut against the Padres and fellow right-hander Josh Johnson. Lincecum will attempt to break his pattern of consistently subpar spring performances.

Opening Day is in jeopardy for Padres’ center fielder Cameron Maybin, who suffered an injury to his left shoulder making a diving catch on Sunday.

Maybin, who missed all but 14 games in 2013 due to injuries, will have an MRI Monday morning, though the initial diagnosis suggested a fairly serious injury, said general manager Josh Byrnes.

In a game in Glendale, Maybin robbed the Dodgers’ Juan Uribe of extra bases in the fourth inning, racing from center to right for a catch. But between pitches to the next batter, Maybin dropped his glove and was in obvious pain.

The injury came a day after Maybin hit his first home run of the spring.

“Man, it felt good,” J.J.Watt NFL Football Uniform Maybin said after his home run on Saturday against the Royals. “I know it’s only two games in, but it felt really good to kind of click one. Just to kind of get that reassurance that the body feels well. You always gain confidence when you’re able to put together a good at-bat.”

Last season, Maybin spent time on the disabled list with first an impingement to his right wrist, which later required season-ending surgery. Maybin also missed time after he tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Maybin J.J.Watt Texans Jersey hit .264 with nine home runs and 40 steals in his first season with the Padres in 2011. He then hit .243 the following season.

If Maybin misses significant time, Will Venable is the likely candidate to see time in center field, as he did a year ago when he appeared in 80 games there.2014 Men’s Nike Houston Texans 99 J.J.Watt Elite Team Color Jerse

The Padres also have outfielders Carlos Quentin, newcomer Seth Smith and Chris Denorfia slated to see plenty of playing time in the outfield, though all are corner outfielders.

Houston Texans Store Report: Redskins tagging Brian Orakpo a ‘close call’

The Houston Texans Store Washington Redskins view Brian Orakpo as a priority this offseason, but if and how they will retain him remains to be seen.

The Andre Johnson Liberty White Jersey Washington Post cited an unnamed member of the organization saying it is a “really close call” whether or not the Redskins will franchise tag Orakpo.

According to the Saturday report, there are differing views within the Redskins organization as to whether or not the outside linebacker is worth the price of the franchise tag or even a long-term contract. One thought is that for a team with so many needs, one player taking up so much cap space — in the short or long term — would be the wrong move for the franchise.

The Redskins have until Monday to decide whether or not to tag Orakpo. The tag for linebackers is $11.455 million.

We mentioned weeks ago that Orakpo would be a candidate to get franchised. The thought process was that Washington isn’t in a position to watch a talent such as Orakpo walk out the door.

Ranked as the No. 2 overall free agent on Houston Texans Andre Johnson Camo Football Jersey Around The League’s 101 free agents list, the 27-year-old linebacker is still in the prime of his career.

The Redskins will have around $30 million of cap space to spend. The first decision that must be made is on Orakpo’s future in Washington.

“I feel bad for the kid. But the amazing thing about him is, he’s so upbeat,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “It’s sad. He wants to play baseball. We were all looking forward to him having a good year. But the key here is getting him healthy. He needs to be healthy, so get this thing fixed — whatever they’re going to do — and go from there.”

Sano, who had a chance to make his big league debut this year, was disappointed about missing the season but was confident that the injury would not hamper his career.

“When I come back, I’m the same player,” Sano said.2014 Men’s Nike Houston Texans 80 Andre Johnson Elite Alternate Battle Red Jersey

Sano was originally diagnosed with a strained UCL this offseason after playing in just two games in his native Dominican Republic in the Dominican Winter League. But after consulting with Twins doctors and Dr. James Andrews, it was determined Sano needed only rest and rehabilitation instead of surgery.

Antony explained that if Sano had the surgery in November, he would’ve missed most of the Minor Andre Johnson NFL Uniform League season, so the Twins were hoping Sano would be able to play the whole season after rehabbing this offseason. Antony added that Sano didn’t reinjure his elbow, as the MRI results were the same as they were in November. The elbow just didn’t get any better.

“[Sano] might’ve been ready at the tail end of the regular season [if he had surgery in November]. But if you can avoid surgery, [you try] any time you have that chance, [and] he might not have missed any of the season,” Antony said. “So do you want to be back for the last month of the season or possibly play the entire season? It was our doctors and Dr. Andrews who agreed that it was the right course of action. So we don’t have any regrets on how it was handled.”

Andre Johnson Texans Jersey Sano, who hit a combined .280/.382/.610 with 35 homers, 30 doubles and 103 RBIs in 123 games split between advanced Andre Johnson Merchandise Class A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain last season, was cleared to throw at the start of Spring Training, and he didn’t have any issues until Thursday’s intrasquad game.

The Twins were hopeful that it was just normal soreness or inflammation, but the MRI exam on Friday confirmed their worst fear that the infielder would need season-ending surgery.Andre Johnson Apparel

Miami Texans Store Online Dolphins unlikely to shop Jordan, Wallace, Wake

Any time an organization changes general managers, league-wide speculation mounts that the new sheriff will begin jettisoning players to reshape the team under a new philosophy.2014 Men’s Nike Houston Texans Whitney Mercilus Elite Team Color Jersey The Miami Dolphins are a prime candidate to unload former general manager Jeff Ireland’s pet projects now that Dennis Hickey is calling the front-office shots. There are mixed reports on the availability of Ireland’s big-ticket items. Whitney Mercilus Football Shirts CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported Friday, via league sources, that the Dolphins have begun shopping 2013 No. 3 overall draft pick Dion Jordan, while rival executives believe Hickey might also be open to dealing Mike Wallace and Cameron Wake. It’s our understanding, however, that the Dolphins are not shopping any of those players. A Dolphins source told the Miami Herald that La Whitney Mercilus Jersey Canfora’s report is false in regard to all three players. The team denied the reports with “no equivocation,” added the Herald’s Armando Salguero. A source also informed the Palm Beach Post that the Dolphins have not spoken to other teams about Jordan and that there hasn’t been any internal dialogue about trading Wallace or Wake. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Hickey eventually dangles Jordan, who has no clear-cut position in coordinator Kevin Whitney Mercilus Women’s Football Jersey Coyle’s 4-3 defense. The former Oregon star is better suited as an edge rusher in a 3-4 scheme, and he’s buried behind 2013 breakout star Olivier Vernon in Miami. Even if Hickey is collecting draft picks and clearing cap space to rebuild his tattered offensive line and lock up Brent Grimes, it’s hard to imagine Wallace and Wake changing uniforms this offseason. Salary-cap penalties aside, the Dolphins couldn’t get enough value in return to make it worth pulling the trigger. Drafted by the D-backs in the eighth round in 2009, Goldschmidt was reported to have a slow bat and was not regarded as a good defender. No one, though, told Goldschmidt as he consistently put up big offensive numbers while impressing the organization with his work ethic and maturity. Goldschmidt hit 18 home runs in 287 at-bats in rookie ball in 2009 and 35 the next year in Whitney Mercilus NFL Uniform Class A Advanced Visalia, and he had 30 in 366 at-bats at Double-A Mobile before the D-backs had seen enough and called him up to the big leagues. It has been a steady progression for Goldschmidt ever since. He had an .808 on-base-plus-slugging percentage in 48 Major League games in 2011, an .850 in a full 2012 season and a .952 last year. So much for the slow bat. And for those with questions about his defense, they can check his mantel for the Gold Glove he won last year. “He’s had some pretty good years since he’s come up in 2011, but he’s humble,” Texans Store Online D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. “He’s humble to death to make sure that he doesn’t think that he’s got it figured out. Just good habits, he’s got good habits.” Goldschmidt focuses on those habits, rather than the numbers.Whitney Mercilus Texans Jersey White They include showing up every day with a good attitude, being focused during his cage work and when taking pregame ground balls, being a good teammate and making sure he stays in good physical shape throughout the season.

J.J. Watt Camo Jersey Charles Woodson: Retirement a ‘serious consideration’

JJ Watt Military Jersey Charles Woodson said earlier this week he “definitely” plans on playing in 2014. Will that change if the Oakland Raiders don’t make him an offer he feels is fair?

“If the right numbers don’t come across for myself and from the team standpoint, it’s a serious consideration, at this point, that I could’ve played my last season in the NFL,” Woodson told SiriusXM NFL Radio, via JJ Watt Jersey Sale CSN Bay Area.

“That’s something that I think about. I do plan on playing another year,” Woodson added. “Hopefully something can get done with the Raiders and, if not, I would have to take a hard look at last year being the last one.”J.J.Watt U.S Army Day Football Jersey

Woodson cashed in on an incentive-laden deal last season, ultimately earning $3.3 million under the terms of the one-year contract. Woodson understands that his age — he’ll turn 38 in October — plays a factor.

“When you get past a certain age, it’s no longer about what you do on the field,” Woodson said. “It’s about your age. They look at the age first and then what you do on the field second. There’s no rush for any team to sign a veteran player. It’s not just a Raiders situation. It’s a league-wide deal.”

Woodson showed flashes off his old self in 2013, but it’s hard to imagine the rebuilding Raiders making any type of substantial investment. Woodson is likely a part-time player JJ Watt Jersey Cheap at this stage. If he can accept a salary that comes with that role, he’ll probably be back.

If not, we might have already seen the end.

Houston Texans Store Offseason Forecast: San Diego Chargers

The Houston Texans Store Chargers did well to make it to the divisional round of the playoffs, but they have to plan as though they were fortunate to reach the postseason. With Frank Reich replacing Ken Whisenhunt at coordinator, general manager Tom Telesco plans to infuse the offense with a speed element that was missing last season. Look for more two tight end sets to get speedy Ladarius Johnathan Joseph Authentic Jersey Green on the field. Armed with a new contract extension, defensive coordinator John Pagano will be begging for more playmakers in free agency and the draft.

Biggest Free Agents

» LB Donald Butler: Around The League’s highest-rated free agent inside linebacker is reported to be the Chargers’ top priority entering March. A three-down linebacker yet to turn 25 years old, Butler is one of the few obvious defensive building blocks in San Diego.

» G Chad Rinehart: Formerly a third-round bust with the Redskins, Rinehart has turned his career around and solidified the Chargers’ interior. He could be brought back at a reasonable rate.

Other key free agents: DT Cam Thomas, WR Danario Alexander, CB Richard Marshall, RB Ronnie Brown, QB Charlie Whitehurst

What they need

Speed on both sides of the ball. The defense lacks star-caliber players and is particularly shallow on cornerbacks and edge rushers. With the futures of Rinehart and Jeromey Clary up in the air, offensive guard will have to be addressed in free agency or the draft. The Bolts also need young receivers behind Keenan Allen and a backup to tailback Ryan Mathews on early downs.

On the way out?

» WR Houston Texans Johnathan Joseph Jersey Sale Eddie Royal / Malcom Floyd: The Bolts can save $4.5 million against the salary cap by releasing Royal, who was an afterthought once Keenan Allen emerged as Philip Rivers’ go-to receiver. Floyd will be 33 years old when the 2014 season starts. He’s yet to be cleared to resume football activities following a career-threatening neck surgery.

» OL Johnathan Joseph Jersey Texans Jeromey Clary: With a cap number due to exceed $6 million this season, Clary’s play is no longer worthy of his bloated contract.

» CB Derek Cox: One of free agency’s biggest busts last year, Cox was benched in favor of fringe roster players shortly after signing a four-year, $20 million contract. His release would leave nearly $4 million in dead money against the cap.

» FB Le’Ron McClain: Why pay a guaranteed $2.5 million to a lead blocker who plays on just 12 percent of offensive snaps?

Offseason crystal ball

The first order of business is to free up cap space by jettisoning bloated veteran contracts. Once that is done, Telesco can take a two-pronged approach in free agency and the draft. He needs to acquire a cornerback via each avenue, perhaps addressing the position with a first- or second-round draft pick. There’s immediate pass-rushing help on the horizon with Dwight Freeney and Melvin Ingram returning to full health, so that can be back-burnered. Finally, Mathews has earned a contract extension by running as hard as any back in the league last season.

Major League Baseball called upon its long history as a social institution to speak its mind on the controversial Arizona Senate Bill 1062, which would have allowed businesses in the state to prohibit gays and others from being extended service based upon the religious beliefs of proprietors.

The bill was vetoed by Arizona Johnathan Joseph Jersey 2014 Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday.

“As the sport of Jackie Robinson, Major League Baseball and its 30 Clubs stand united behind the principles of respect, inclusion and acceptance,” read a statement released by the league. “Those values are fundamental to our game’s diverse players, employees and fans. We welcome individuals of different sexual orientations, races, religions, genders and national origins.

“MLB has a Johnathan Joseph Jersey zero-tolerance policy for harassment or discrimination based on sexual orientation, as reflected by our collective bargaining agreement with the MLB Players Association. Accordingly, MLB will neither support nor tolerate any words, attitudes or actions that imperil the inclusive communities that we have strived to foster within our game.”

Brewer called a news conference at the state Capitol in Phoenix on Wednesday evening and said the bill was problematic and “could result in unintended and negative consequences.”

“I sincerely believe that Senate Bill 1062 has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve,” Brewer said.
