It’s status quo on national anthem protests in the NFL鈥t least for now.

NFL owners engaged in what was described as a healthy discussion about player protests but came out of a Monday afternoon meeting without adopting any revisions to current policies regarding the national anthem, a person with knowledge of the details of the meeting told USA TODAY Sports.

His understanding of what we’re doing, his understanding of what the defense is doing, how those fit together. Physically, he can get better. The way he gets away from center, his mechanics in the gun, the way he throws the football, his decisiveness, his decision-making, all of those things can get better, and they will get better.

One draft pick can’t solve all these issues. Connor Williams’ potential addition can help at multiple positions, though. Williams is an outstanding athlete whom some have listed as the top offensive tackle prospect. But his lack of length (33-inch arms) may push him inside. Williams can compete with Schweitzer to start and possibly replace Matthews down the road if the 2014 first-round pick tests free agency.

Authentic Mens Geno Atkins Jersey I had two surgeries this off-season on my ankle and knee, Matthews said, via SiriusXM NFL Radio. I think people will go back to my tape with the Eagles and know that Paul Martin Jersey I was trending as a No. 1 receiver before all the injuries.

Matthews actually underwent three surgeries last season. He had thumb surgery in early October. In December, Matthews went back underneath the knife for surgeries on his left knee and right ankle.

Report: Caleb Sturgis visited Seahawks Thursday, visiting Chargers next

Two teams that struggled through kicking problems in 2017 are taking a look at former Philadelphia Eagles kicker Caleb Sturgis.

According to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com, the Seattle Seahawks hosted Sturgis for a visit on Thursday. Sturgis is scheduled to visit the Los Angeles Chargers on Friday.

Every NFL scout loves a powerful arm, but there’s more to an evaluation. Allen’s 56.2 career completion percentage has everyone wondering if he can make good decisions, throw with anticipation and provide better ball placement as a professional. Those things can’t be seen during a pro day performance.聽

However, improved footwork, timing and touch can. Outside of a few deep throws, the majority of Allen’s workout centered on those three aspects. Improvement can be seen in his lower-body mechanics. After working the last few months with quarterback coach Jordan Palmer, the 6’5, 233-pound gunslinger is marrying his Jamie Meder Jersey footwork to his throwing motion.聽
Elite Mens Mark Scheifele Jersey
These little steps could lead to big improvements as organizations consider Allen’s immense upside.聽

Now the Patriots, who have lost some important ers this offseason, can be confident that they won’t lose Chung next offseason.

Shaquill Griffin Authentic Jersey Tyrann Mathieu said after the Cardinals cut him that his top priority was the right fit, not the most money. Apparently he meant it.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports that the Cardinals were willing to pay Mathieu $8 million in 2018. Mathieu turned that down and took a a one-year contract that will pay him $6.5 million, with up to $500,000 more in incentives if he s in all 16 games.

Les Snead says Rams trying to re-sign John Sullivan, Connor Barwin

Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead said Wednesday the team is attempting to re-sign center John Sullivan and linebacker Connor Barwin, per Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com.

Sullivan and Barwin were both signed to one-year deals a year ago and helped turn the Rams from a moribund roster into a off team for the first time in 13 years.

A native of France, Mensah arrived last August after playing point guard on the junior-college level in Iowa. He played in 27 games, averaging .6 points in 6.7 minutes-per-game during a 15-19 campaign.

The departures open up two scholarship that Rutgers can use next month when the spring signing period begins.

One of the openings could be earmarked for Tai Strickland, a 6-2 point guard from St. Petersburg, Fla., who is visiting Rutgers this weekend. Strickland, who is the son of former NBA point guard Rod Strickland, will reportedly choose between Rutgers and two other Big Ten programs — Minnesota and Wisconsin — next month.

Orlando Brown posts better 40 time at Oklahoma’s Pro Day

Neal Broten Kids Jersey The University of Oklahoma Pro Day is on Wednesday, which means a lot of NFL talent evaluators and coaches are in Norman to check out quarterback Baker Mayfield and other Sooners prospects with free agency opening in the afternoon.

One of the other prospects they got to see is offensive tackle Orlando Brown, who is coming off a Scouting Combine performance that didn’t elicit too many rave reviews. Brown, who weighed in at 345 pounds, followed up a 14-rep effort on the bench press with an official time of 5.85 seconds in the 40-yard dash and other poor showings in athletic drills.

Here are five thoughts on the signings:

1) Wallace might not start for the Eagles, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get significant playing time. The Eagles are very thin at receiver, and need a player to push second-year receiver Mack Hollins for playing time.

2) Wallace was at one point a deep threat in his career, as he averaged over 19 yards per reception his first two years in the NFL. He聽averaged 14.2 yards per reception on 124 receptions over the last two seasons.

Marcus Peters Limited Jersey The below-market deal signed by Saints quarterback Drew Brees is even more below-market than believed.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that Brees’ contract includes a $10.5 million signing bonus and a $10.2 million base salary in 2018. That’s $20.7 million in base compensation.

Brees also can earn up to $3.3 million in incentives. Without knowing the triggers, it’s hard to know how easy or hard it will be to hit the numbers.

But after watching Flacco regress last year, we are just a tad skeptical to jump aboard this hype train.

Flacco managed to throw for only 18 touchdowns last year and that was with Mike Wallace Cameron Brate Jersey and Jeremy Maclin on the field.

Matt Forte to sign one-day contract to retire with Bears

Running back Matt Forte announced his intentions to retire from the NFL last week.

On Wednesday,聽 Maccagnan is in Los Angeles with Jets coach Todd Bowles and player personnel director Brian Heimerdinger to check out Darnold’s pro day.聽

Unlike Rosen, Mayfield, and Allen, Darnold did not throw during his workout at the NFL Scouting Combine. So his pro day is particularly important for聽 NFL decision makers.聽

The J.J. Watt Womens Jersey plan is hopefully to bring him back, coach Sean Payton.

They’re waiting to see how Westhoff recovers from a recent hip surgery, which Payton referred to as significant.

Meanwhile, there are six active deals within $2 million of one another toward the top of the charts: DeAndre Hopkins ($49 million), Brown ($48.9 million), Sammy Watkins ($48 million), Demaryius Thomas ($47.5 million), A.J. Green ($47.3 million) and Julio Jones ($47 million). Those numbers were left in the dust by Evans, whose five-year, $82.5 million deal was only a modest increase on the five-year, $81 million deal signed by Hopkins before the 2017 season. The difference is that Evans reportedly will take home $55 million over the first three years, $6 million more than Houston’s star wideout.

How Vikings ‘$64,000’ QB question could affect the Jets

No one in the NFL has a more interesting quarterback decision this offseason than the Vikings.

Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford are all scheduled to become free agents on March 14. All have merit as a starting quarterback in the NFL. But all come with huge questions, something Vikings coach Mike Zimmer addressed Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Quarterback, Watson. No hesitation.

Jackson is one of the biggest wild cards heading into April’s draft, with no one really knowing where he might go. In our mock drafts here at CBSSports.com, we have him going all over the place, from as high as 15th overall (to the Cardinals) to as low as 28th overall (to the Steelers).

Nothing ground-shaking, yet, in a matter of just two minutes and at minimal expense, local TV had turned Andy Greene from just an earnest veteran hockey player who wears No. 6 while skating beneath a helmet, into a fellow we now kinda, sorta know, a guy we suspect is worth our rooting interest.

That’s all it took and often all it takes to produce good TV and good vibes. And it was a good use of time often filled and killed as dead time.

At halftime of Northwestern-Penn State, four on-site Big Ten Network analysts appeared on a courtside set to talk things over. Is there a greater inducement to turn the channel than to see Authentic Mookie Betts Jersey and hear four people prepared to preview the next game or break down the first half?

Sure, when there’s five instead of four.

Xavier Woods Womens Jersey But that’s the all-networks formula it’s both expensive and mostly worthless.

Today’s panel includes ESPN Fantasy’s André Snellings and Kyle Soppe, as well as DFS expert Renee Miller.

Trumaine Johnson received the franchise tag in each of the last two years, making it unlikely the Rams would be able to hammer out a deal in the 2018 offseason. That was bad news with Kayvon Webster going down with an Achilles injury late in 2017, leaving the Rams with little cornerback depth.

They solved the problem by brokering trades with the Chiefs and Broncos to land Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib two of the NFL’s best cornerbacks.

Which players should you build around and which players should you fade in DFS as we tip off tonight’s NBA action? Our experts have the answers.

There are a lot of reasons to lock in George tonight. First, he comes at a mid-tier salary at a position that’s one of the more difficult to fill tonight. He’s also been as consistently good as almost anyone, filling the stat sheet in multiple categories on a regular basis.

I felt it midway through the season last year, Judge said Wednesday, via ESPN.com. But it came down to,’Can you play?’ And I could play…. If I was able to play, I was going to go out there and be ready for my team.

Cleveland has committed about $20 million or so to cornerbacks today, but it’s unclear whether the Browns have found an upgrade on Taylor.

QB AJ McCarron, Bills Grade: C+ After the much expected dalliance between McCarron and Hue Jackson never came to fruition in Cleveland, the former Alabama star was left frantically searching for a seat in the NFL’s version of musical chairs.

The last spot left standing with a viable path toward a starting job was in Buffalo, where the only guy left on the depth chart was Nathan Peterman.

McCarron is overrated by virtue of having not played much over the past two seasons, but he is certainly an upgrade on Peterman.

For a team that spent months privately pining about how badly it wanted a traditional quarterback in lieu of the talented passer it had in Tyrod Taylor, the 6-foot-4 McCarron is about as tall as viable passers come.patriots_004

Those in tight rotisserie league races will especially appreciate the push for just a couple more stats in a particular category.

Those extra goals or that extra misconduct penalty could be the difference in your league between glory and defeat.

The Denver offer carries the largest payout through the first year and the largest through three seasons, while matching the Jets’ offer for the highest annual average ($30 million). It also returns Cousins to the market after only four seasons instead of five, giving him an earlier shot at yet another big payday. Denver is also a place where my client can provide the clear difference between a losing season and a winning one, as outlined in this recent analysis.

Limited Kids Brandon Marshall Jersey The Phillies targeted Arrieta as a veteran starter to bring stability to a young, evolving rotation. Aaron Nola, the Phillies’ top returning starter, is 24 years old. Jerad Eickhoff and Vince Velasquez, the two starters behind him, have yet to break through because of injuries and inconsistent performance. Last year, Philadelphia’s starters ranked 10th in the NL with a 4.80 ERA and ninth with a 2.48 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Oh, why not. Following up Thursday’s remarkable 35-save effort in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers, the 25-year-old stopped 50 of 52 shots in Sunday’s 5-2 victory over the Calgary Flames. Not bad at all. Seven games into his NHL career (four of them taking place two years ago), Gibson doesn’t seem the least bit bothered by his own lack of experience or that he’s competing for the team allowing a league high in shots against per game. Consider giving him a whirl in daily fantasy play.

Arrieta’s creatively structured contract pays him base salaries of $30 million, $25 million and $20 million through 2020. He can opt out of the deal after 2019, and the Phillies have the ability to void the opt-out and exercise a two-year option that could keep him with the organization through 2022.

Watkins wasn’t a game-changer in his first season on the West Coast, but he added a valuable extra dimension to the league’s top-ranked scoring offense. He averaged more than 15 yards per catch, showcasing the skills that made him the first receiver taken in the 2014 NFL Draft.

While Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods emerged as Jared Goff’s top targets, Watkins’ ability to stretch the field and find the end zone made him an Ramon Humber Jersey invaluable piece of the team’s surprising 2017 turnaround. He led the team with eight receiving touchdowns, averaging about one for every five catches.

Frank Vatrano made his Florida Panthers debut on the second line with Jonathan Huberdeau and Vincent Trocheck, scoring a goal in the process. Vatrano is a goal scorer at heart and could surprise down the stretch run playing with such heady company. … The Chicago Blackhawks started experimenting with their defensive pairings during their California road trip at the start of the month. Out of that tinkering, Erik Gustafsson ended up being paired with Brent Seabrook for the past four games. The result has been two goals and four assists for the otherwise quiet defender. In fact, he even earned the top power-play duties on Sunday against the Boston Bruins and potted two assists with the unit in a 3-1 win.

Shattenkirk has been skating for a week now, and was off crutches from his mid-January knee surgery by Feb. 7. This certainly sounds like one of the shorter-term meniscus tears we sometimes see from players (Taylor Hall last year). We know Shattenkirk has been suffering from this injury all season, but he managed the pain with a cortisone shot to start the campaign (and posted 17 points in the first 18 games). He’s potentially returning to a torn-down Rangers roster, but one that can still put the puck in the net and ice a solid power-play unit. If he’s been skating for a week, hopefully watch for news of him practicing again with teammates in the next 10 days, at which point it’s time to scoop him up.

I can get guys open, and if I don’t get the assist, the Authentic Johnny Bucyk Jersey next guy will be open because they’ve got to react to the drive, Smith said. I’m already aware of that.

At the same time, Smith’s teammates and coaches stress that he needs to stay in attack mode. That momentum-shifting charge call that temporarily took him out of the game is exactly the play they’d want him to make again, although everyone involved would have preferred the whistle went a different way.

I think he went into this game without committing an offensive foul, and now he’s got two in one game. He’s got to go downhill and attack and provide momentum.

In what is already all but a lost season for Dallas, those learning experiences are key for the player the franchise hopes will be the face of its next phase. The talent is there. The production and decision-making will catch up.
