Chargers reach agreement with Geno Smith

The Los Angeles Chargers have found a new potential backup for Philip Rivers as the team announced Sunday that it has reached an agreement with quarterback Geno Smith. After spending the first four seasons of his career with the New York Jets, Smith crossed over to the other locker room in MetLife Stadium to suit up with the New York Giants last year.

The Lions and Ansah remain far apart on a long-term contract, enough so that people close to Ansah remain convinced he’ll play this fall on the one-year tag at a cost of $17.143 million.

The Lions have indicated to Ansah that they want to give new coach Matt Patricia an opportunity to get to know and work with Ansah before doing a long-term deal.

San Francisco could certainly use an elite weapon for Garoppolo, who received a five-year, $137.5 million contract earlier this offseason, and general manager John Lynch has the No. 9 overall pick in the draft at his disposal. A package containing that pick plus another and/or a young defensive lineman like DeForest Buckner or Solomon Thomas could do the job.

Plus, the Niners have more cap space than anyone in the NFC, which means they can probably outspend the Rams or any other potential Beckham suitor except one…

Yes, when it comes to potential Beckham trade destinations, the Cleveland Browns have Cheap Jerseys Authentic by far the most capital. Not only do they possess a league-high $71 million in cap space in order to secure Beckham long-term, but they hold two of the top four picks in the first round and two Cheap Jerseys China of the top three picks in the second round of the 2018 draft.

In hindsight, it may be no coincidence that the locker room no longer has that vibe, nor the backup quarterback they picked over him. Teams have employed all levels of ineptitude at the position while avoiding Kaepernick, but few, if any, passed on him in favor of someone they ended up having to cut because he was accused of breaking his girlfriend’s jaw.

Case Keenum gets money, but not his old number in Denver

Case Keenum might have a pile of cash now, but he doesn’t have enough to buy his old number in his new city.

The new Broncos quarterback, whose Twitter handle is @CaseKeenum7, wasn’t going to get that one so he decided to pick something different.

Our failures define our successes, Mathieu says. Michael Jordan took so many shots. Kobe Bryant took so many shots. But as we look back at his career, we know why he took so many shots. We know why Michael Jordan wanted the ball in his hand. He failed enough. Success was the only thing that could happen at that point. Those guys hit rock bottom—Michael Jordan getting cut.

That’s what I ultimately wanted for myself. I don’t want anyone to believe in me more than me.

So he doesn’t hide from his performance last fall. Injuries ravaged his game. His mentality. OK, he didn’t allow any touchdowns in 2017. Fine, he played more snaps (1,261) than anyone in the NFL. But real-life honey badgers are known for attacking any animal on earth—even lions. They’re ruthless. Fearless. Don’t give a damn if they’re one-sixth the size of their prey. And Mathieu was, uh, more of a house cat for stretches last season. Tearing both ACLs and suffering a shoulder subluxation poisoned his game with hesitancy.

The New York Post reported that Cowboys tight end Jason Witten and retired quarterback Carson Palmer also are candidates for the job.

On Tuesday, 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman defended his decision to negotiate his own Cheap Jerseys America contract. Along the way, he called out one of the biggest critics of his self-negotiated deal. (And, yes, said critic is a certain Internet hack with whom you may be familiar.)

The thing I’m most frustrated about is all the people that were so high on bashing Cheap Ireland Jerseys this deal refuse to bash the agents that do awful deals every year, Sherman told reporters at his introductory press conference. There are agents out there that are doing $3 million fully guaranteed deals that look like $50 million deals. When the guy gets cut after two weeks or after a year, and the guy only makes $5 million of a $50 million contract, nobody sits there and bashes the agent. You don’t hear Florio writing any articles about it.
