Eagles add linebacker Paul Worrilow

The Super Bowl champions are adding some depth on defense and special teams.

The Eagles are signing linebacker Paul Worrilow, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Worrilow played about a quarter of the Lions’ defensive snaps and about half of their special teams stats last season. That was his only year in Detroit after previously playing four seasons in Atlanta.

He’s a lock to pick up starts in all three of those games, probably at third base with Maikel Franco shifting to DH, and that might well provide the opportunity for the rookie to build up hitting momentum and nail down an everyday role. Although the Phillies’ hitting rating is middling — 6 overall and for both left- and right-handers — mostly due to the pitching-friendly nature of Tropicana Field, this is a good week to rely on them for a volume advantage.

He was tendered at the original round level of $1.907 million, and since he was undrafted wouldn’t have cost another team any compensation to sign away.

He earned the starting left guard job, and has 33 starts in three seasons. He led the league in performance-based pay this year, picking up an extra $489,782.35 for last season.

My value picks for Week 2 both come from the St. Louis Cardinals, who face four (and possibly five) right-handed starters in seven games, miss both Chase Anderson and Luis Castillo in their opponents’ rotations and have one of the week’s best stolen base matchup ratings.

Dexter Fowler (available in roughly 40 percent of ESPN leagues) is the team’s typical leadoff man who has underrated stolen base skills, while Kolten Wong (available in roughly 95 percent) showed a more aggressive approach on the base paths during the preseason that hasn’t shown itself since the games began to count. Both should be in your lineup for this favorable schedule.

Much at stake for Jazz vs. Warriors

An incredible turnaround is complete.
Men's Majestic Miami Marlins #8 Andre Dawson Replica White Home Cool Base MLB Jersey
The Utah Jazz clinched an NBA playoff spot with Sam Martin Jersey two regular-season games left after beating the Los Angeles Lakers 112-97 on Sunday. It caps an unforeseen rise after the Jazz (47-33) were nine games below .500 in mid-January with a 19-28 record.

Limited Youth John Hannah Jersey What this group of guys has done — as far as being nine games below .500 and dealing with a lot of adversity and change — I’m really proud of their effort over the course of the season, Jazz coach Quin Snyder told reporters on Sunday.

No one needs to remind Golden State how dangerous the Jazz have become as the regular season winds down. The Warriors (58-23) have suffered two straight lopsided losses to Utah and they fell 129-99 to the Jazz in their other visit to Salt Lake City on Jan. 27.

Kobi Simmons matched Gasol with a career-high 20 points, converting 7 of 10 shots.

Anthony Tolliver led the Pistons with 19 points, and Luke Kennard added 18, including making all four of his shots from outside the arc. Henry Ellenson had a career-high 17 points.

The game featured 3-point sprees from the two teams — both reaching season highs on made shots from beyond the arc. Memphis made 16 from outside the arc; the Pistons made a franchise-record 23, the highest number of 3-pointers for a Grizzlies opponent this season.

Kids Franco Harris Jersey But throughout his postgame comments, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy harped on the defensive effort.

Our defense was horrendous, he said. I mean (the Grizzlies) are the next to the worst offensive team in the league, and they scored over 30 (points) in every quarter. … Our effort was bad, our concentration was bad. We were terrible defensively.

Memphis led by 20 in the first half, but a late rally in the second period left the Grizzlies with a 62-56 lead at the break. While Detroit got close a couple of times in the third quarter, it could never overtake Memphis. The Grizzlies led by double digits the bulk of the fourth quarter. Detroit got closer than nine points only once in the final 7 minutes.

Conforto is ahead of schedule in his recovery from surgery for a dislocated left shoulder.

Our own conclusion is that you should play it safe. Babe should continue to pitch full time and be used as a pinch hitter in every possible circumstance between starts. In this setup, he’d likely be worth about 9 WAR per season, as long as he stays healthy. That’s one of the half-dozen best players in baseball. Gambling that Babe is something much better than that — that he’d hit 20, 25, even 30 home runs per season — is tempting, and it would be fun to try, but that’s such an extreme outcome that we’d never bet on it. It almost certainly wouldn’t happen.

Elite Kids Ronnie Lott Jersey It ended up being one of his lesser offensive seasons, but at the time, it was his best, and it suggested he might well revolutionize offense in the modern game. It also was one of his lesser pitching seasons, though not by much. He fought with his manager over his usage and threatened to punch Barrow in the nose after Barrow criticized his offensive approach. He used a dubious wrist injury as an excuse not to pitch, and at one point, he got so frustrated that he reportedly quit the Red Sox and signed to play with a shipyard team in Chester, Pennsylvania.

Would more at-bats on the minor league side help? Possibly, Conforto said. But I think at the end of the day, I’m going to have to get my timing back against the (Max) Scherzers and the (Stephen) Strasburgs and the guys I’m going to be facing this year.

The initial target date was May 1.

I feel very fortunate to be coming back a little bit quicker, he said. Obviously, I didn’t want to miss the first month of the season. May 1 felt a little late to me, so I made it a goal of mine to get back as quickly as possible.

Conforto took swings against new teammate Jason Vargas during a simulated game in the indoor batting cage Monday at Citi Field.

I feel ready, Quincy Wilson Jersey Conforto said. I feel good to go.

Tampa Bay has lost four straight since beating Boston in its opener.

Maybe that’s good enough for Seattle these days: Dress different, act like the masses. It wasn’t good enough before, though, when the Seahawks nurtured an identity, lived by their own rules and stayed late at the playoff party every year. Here’s how this emerging version of the Seahawks make news now: 锟斤拷 Unloading veterans for salary-cap reasons. 锟斤拷 Dangling other veterans in trade talks to avoid having to pay them.

Villanueva, who made his big league debut Sept. 18, capped his big night with a three-run shot that went an estimated 390 feet to left off Antonio Senzatela with two outs in the seventh.

Limited Womens Bobby Baun Jersey New York improved to 3-2 under Boone, who took over when Joe Girardi was fired after a decade in charge.

I like when the big boy doesn’t get any and we’re able to score 11, because there’s Kyle Singler Authentic Jersey going to be a lot of days when we hop on his back, Boone said.

He was good today. There’s no other way around it, Green said about Villanueva. That was an impressive day. I did throw him batting today; I don’t usually throw practice so I’ll be throwing batting practice again tomorrow. He just had really good swings all day.

The Padres trailed 3-2 before Freddy Galvis hit a two-run single in the sixth and Villanueva scored his third run of the night, on a fielder’s choice.

Authentic Womens Daeshon Hall Jersey In 10 years, no, Gettleman said, when asked if he’s ever seen a running back with Barkley’s skill-set. He can string together moves and get in and out of stuff… He’s unique. There’s no doubt about it. He’s big. He’s powerful. He can step on the gas at different levels of speed. And, he catches the heck out of the ball, and he sees the blitz pickup. He’s unique.

Gettleman’s praise of Barkley should come as little surprise after the two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of The Year capped his collegiate career as a focal point of the Nittany Lions’ offense with 5,038 yards from scrimmage and 51 total touchdowns in 38 games.

Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Rams making strongest push for NFC title run

Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Rams making strongest push for NFC title run More Unless it’s in Las Vegas, there aren’t many people who are setting the odds of who will represent the two conferences in the Super Bowl.

Which isn’t to say that it looks simple. Every decision the Angels make in how they use Ohtani will be difficult, just as it was difficult for the Boston Red Sox to decide how to use Babe Ruth 100 years ago — almost exactly 100 years ago, in fact. In April 1918, Babe Ruth was a full-time pitcher pleading to be allowed to play the field. His manager, Ed Barrow, was resistant, in part fearful that he’d be a laughingstock. The decision, which came to a head in early May of that season, looks obvious in retrospect. But what exactly was Barrow choosing between at the time We invented an analytics department for the 1918 Red Sox to find out.

Miami also designated right-hander Brian Ellington for assignment. Ellington made 97 relief appearances for the Marlins from 2015 through 2017, going 7-4 with a 4.65 ERA.

Teams recover, of course. The 2014 Royals lost a Game 7 with the tying run on third base when the World Series ended. They were so traumatized that they won the title the very next season. The 2016 Indians lost one of the most epic Game 7s ever, in extra innings, and like the Royals had the tying run on base when the Series ended. The Indians didn’t win the title last year, but they did win 102 games.

We have to be over it, first baseman Cody Bellinger said. It’s a new season. Time to move on.

You do it because you have to. The baseball world moves in one direction: forward.

We’re very much a glass-is-half-full organization, Zaidi said. We feel great about what we accomplished last year. But there was no panic [in our offseason]. We believe in our process and our talent.patriots_114

Report: John Bowlen sells portion of his stake in Broncos back to team

John Bowlen has agreed to sell a portion of his stake in the Broncos back to the team, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Bowlen, the brother of Broncos majority owner Pat Bowlen, announced almost five months ago he intended to sell his non-voting minority interest in the team.

The Denver Broncos have reached an agreement to purchase a portion of minority owner John Bowlen’s share of the team, pending final approval from the NFL that is expected in the next few days, the team said in a statement to the newspaper.

Still, Shanahan couldn’t shake his visions of Cousins under center in San Francisco.

After rewarding his hotshot quarterback with a record-breaking contract last month, Shanahan acknowledged to The MMQB’s Albert Breer that the specter of Cousins hung over Garoppolo’s early days in San Francisco.

Yeah, of course, it was there, Shanahan said. Everyone Womens Mark Herzlich Jersey knows how I feel about Kirk . And for anybody who knows how I feel about Kirk, I think this shows how I feel about Jimmy, the fact that we ended up doing this. I’m not a guy who’s going to get excited and just go with the momentum, at all. I usually do the opposite, question it to make sure I’m absolutely confident, and not go with the momentum or the excitement.

The Ravens announced earlier this year the long-standing plan for DeCosta to become the team’s top decision-maker, though Newsome will remain with the organization. DeCosta previously had not spoken publicly about the promotion.

I’ll be ready. I think our organization will be ready, DeCosta said. I just hope that I can do a good enough job that the organization’s faith in me will be rewarded.

DeCosta, 46, has big shoes to fill. Newsome built two Super Bowl teams and drafted 18 ers who went to the Pro Bowl, including Jonathan Ogden, Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel participated in the University of San Diego’s pro day Thursday with scouts from at least 13 NFL teams in attendance, according to ESPN’s Eric D. Williams.
