David Johnson likes idea of running behind a fullback

Cardinals coach Steve Wilks gave running back David Johnson a rave review for his work on the first day of OTAs on Tuesday and it’s hard to blame the exuberance given how important Johnson is to Wilks’ chances of success in his first year on the job.

Johnson gave a positive review of his own on Tuesday. Wilks and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy have plotted a different course than Arizona followed when Bruce Arians was in charge and one of their changes is to involve a fullback in the offense. Derrick Coleman was signed as a free agent this offseason and Johnson said he likes the idea of running behind him in the future.

At the NFL owners meetings in Atlanta, Kraft told reporters that he has been in contact with Brady and expects the quarterback to be at the team’s mandatory minicamp in June, despite Brady skipping voluntary OTAs for the first time in eight years.

But there’s one football skill Sherman still hasn’t figured out yet.

“I still can’t kick it through the uprights,” she quipped.

“There was obviously some stuff behind closed doors. Their owner talking sh-t to our owner. Bill talking sh-t to our head coach before the game. I’m not going to say it, but a lot of sh-t kind [of] built up to that, and I just got tired of hearing about it, man, to be honest.”

It’s unclear why Johnson would claim that Robert Kraft was “talking sh-t” to Jeffrey Lurie or that Belichick was “talking sh-t” to Doug Pederson. Whatever the reason or basis for that contention, beating the Patriots on the biggest stage in sports wasn’t enough for Johnson, because he’s still holding a grudge.

Prescott has a long way to go if has any hope of being compared to Cowboys greats Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman and Tony Romo, though the Pro Bowl quarterback is Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys off to a good start by winning Cheap Braves Jerseys 22 of his first 32 regular-season starts.

Mason Rudolph drafted No. 76 overall by Steelers

Pittsburgh has drafted a developmental quarterback for the second consecutive year.

The Steelers traded up with the Seahawks to select Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph with the No. 76 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Seattle received the Nos. 79 (Rasheem Green) and 220 overall picks as compensation.

He reminded me of Matt Ryan, one scout told BobMcGinnFootball.com. He’s calm, cool, collected, accurate. He’s faster than Ryan. Pocket passer. High three-quarters delivery. Excellent deep-ball accuracy. Good enough athlete. Not a runner. People are down on him but all he does for four years is win.

The 6-foot-1 wideout earned a second-team All-American honor in 2017 and was a Biletnikoff Award Finalist as one of the nation’s top receivers. The community college transfer Cheap Braves Jerseys compiled 2,685 yards and 21 TDs in two seasons at Colorado State, earning more than 1,200 yards each year.

Gallup owns a good combination of size and speed with an ability to high-point the ball, make difficult sideline catches, and plus run-after-catch acumen. Boasting quick feet, good hands and an ability to break off his route, Gallup can gain separation despite not having blazing speed.

His production is a little better this year but I thought his tape was a lot better because he’s learning how to really play the position, one NFC South scout told NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein. He has good size and he’s going to run well. I think he will keep getting better.

The Cowboys waited until the third-round to try and plug the Dez Bryant-sized hole in their receiving corps. Gallup could become one of the sleepers of the draft. The rookie joins Allen Hurns, Terrance Williams, Cole Besley and Deonte Thompson atop the Cowboys’ wideout group. Gallup could earn a big role right out of the gate in Dallas.

Watch Kyrie Irving set up LeBron James dunk with lob off backboard

The top four teams dominated the conference for most of the season, but there’s more parity in the East when compared to the West. From whether the Pacers can contain LeBron James at point-center to Bradley Beal’s off-ball movement, let’s look at which factors could swing each series.

Although the Cavaliers took a huge step back defensively this season, they’ve been a historically good team on offense. They finished the season behind only the Warriors and Rockets in offensive efficiency with 110.9 points per 100 possessions and had some of the highest scoring lineups in the entire league.

The tweet, with the words LA Clippers followed by three smiley face emojis, was quickly deleted. Yet it sparked plenty of speculation. Was Porzingis — who was unhappy with the Knicks’ struggles and off-court drama last season — trying to send a not-so-subtle message about his preferred destination?

There’s another explanation. ESPN’s Ian Begley reported Cheap Bike Jerseys For Men Sunday that Porzingis was sleeping when the Clippers tweet was sent and that his representative said his Twitter account was apparently hacked.

After Porzingis skipped his postseason exit interview with the Cheap Braves Jerseys Knicks last month, ESPN reported several teams had reached out to the Knicks to inquire about his availability. Coming on the heels of that news, the last thing the 7-3 star needs is a hacker messing around with his Twitter account.
