If Brandon Marshall is a man of his word, he'll soon be announcing his retirement from the National Josh Doctson Game Red Football League.(UPDATE: He's not retiring.)The Jets are releasing the six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, Newsday's Kimberly Martin first reported Thursday, as the team continues to rid its roster of expensive and aging veterans. Corneback Darrelle Revis and center Nick Mangold were released by the team in the past week.MORE:Nick Mangold released by Jets while vacationing at Disney WorldMartin reported that Marshall asked to be released and the Jets granted his wish; however, Marshall said several times during his tenure in New York that the Jets would be his last stop in the NFL before retiring. He tweeted in 2015,"If I'm cut tomorrow. I'll retire. This will be my last team." He had even stronger words in a New York Daily News piece."Once the Jets say, 'We don't need you anymore,' I'm going to venture off into that world," Marshall told the Daily News. "I'm not playing for another team Kirk Cousins Jersey . Four (Broncos, Dolphins, Bears, Jets) is all I need. It's too hard to make new friends and relationships and deal with different egos. I don't like the busine s already. So I'm not trying to deal with that."So what's next for Marshall? Washington Redskins Game Jersey MORE: Bowles says arrest had nothing to do with Revis' releaseHe's 32, but he's also a 6-4 red-zone threat who's still producing at a high level and has plenty left in the tank. There's no way he could retire now, right?Before his late-night Instagram post, retirement wouldn't have been surprising. As noted, Marshall has talked retirement many times throughout his 11-year career. He considered it in 2012 while recovering from his third hip surgery.I woke up every day just going through the motions, Marshall told the New York Post.Marshall revealed that one day he went on a 6-mile run and cried the whole way.After Chicago traded him to New York in March 2015, Marshall said he came to the Jets on "a two-year plan," hoping to win a Super Bowl with them before hanging 'em up for good.STEELE: Revis Island should relocate to a new positionWith Marshall coming off his least productive season since his rookie yearand the Jets clearly in rebuilding mode, Marshall could Josh Doctson Jersey just beis looking for a new team that gives him a better chance at a ring. Teams certainly will be interested. He is one of only five players in NFL history to catch 100 pa ses or more in three consecutive seasons, and he holds the NFL single-game record with 21 receptions.If Marshall does decide enough's enough, he could easily join the list of former NFL players who've jumped into broadcasting. He already is a host on Showtime Jordan Reed Jersey s Inside the NFL and has made a number of TV appearances throughout his career.And if Brandon Marshall is a man of his word, thedecision should be an obvious one.(UPDATE: Marshall has made his decision. It isn't retirement.)This column has been updated with Marshall saying he will look to sign with another team after the Jets release him.

While the Senior Bowl features more than 100 of the top seniors of college football, its no secret the quarterbacks will dominate the storylines and discu sions ahead of the big game.With two potential first-round quarterbacks in Oklahomas Baker Mayfield and Wyomings Josh Allen, coupled with small-school sleeper Kyle Lauletta of Richmond and underappreciated Mike White of Western Kentucky, the 2018 Senior Bowl might offer the most intriguing quarterback cla sin years.MORE: Biggest storylines of Senior BowlHere's a look at the best quarterbacks at the Senior Bowl before practice gives a clearer view of the field.8. Brandon Silvers, TroySilvers in 2014 broke Sam Bradfords NCAA record for completion percentage by a freshman, completing70.5 percent of his pa ses (191 of 271). A solid athlete, Silvers shows the mobility to escape pre sure and maneuver around the pocket while keeping his eyes downfield. He offers great accuracy on the run and has the arm strength to throw acro s his body when escaping the pocket.Silvers, who played in a rhythm offense in college,sometimes held onto the ball too long on third-and- Robert Quinn Jersey long plays. He is generally a good decision-maker in the pocket, but hell need to show his touch and efficiency in practice to prove he's deserving of a draft pick.7. Kurt Benkert, VirginiaBenkert spent the first three years of his career at East Carolina. After redshirting in 2013 and being the backup in 2014, Benkert was set to be the starter in 2015 before a knee injury took him out for the year. Benkert, then a graduate,transferred to Virginia in 2016, Janoris Jenkins Jersey where he immediately became the starter.Benkert reads the field well pre-snap and can anticipate where receivers will be open in quick-pa sing concepts. He throwsas soon as his back foot hits the end of the drop back, and does so with excellent velocity. Benkert tends to throw behind moving targets and throwshort of stationary targets. He'll need an offense with West Coast and Air Raid influences. If he can show improved ball placement especially on perimeter routes and in one-on-one situations he can earn a draftable grade.MORE: When is Senior Bowl?6. Luke Falk, Washington StateFalk, the Pac-12s all-time pa sing leader, has the ideal size for a pocket-pa ser and makesplays with defenders in his face. He can completethrows while taking hits, but also demonstrates great pocketfootwork by avoiding rushers orstepping up in the pocket to find open throwing lanes. His awarene s to get rid of the ball is sometimes a concern, and he has often seemed confused by disguised coverages.Falk has average arm strength, good trajectory to fit the ball in tight windows and can drive to the middle of field, but he needs air under his ball on the outside-intermediate to deep routes. Falk is mentally tough, but makes bad decisions when pre sing. He needs improvement in several areas, but everything seems fixable. He likely wont dominate practice, but NFL teams expect Rams Men's Custom Game Jersey him to show his mental proce sin interviews.5. Tanner Lee, NebraskaA redshirt-junior, Lee is a 6-4 pocket-pa ser who transferred to Nebraska after starting his career at Tulane. Arriving to the Senior Bowl to replace Mason Rudolph, Lee has the body type, arm talent, and college flash to impre s in the practice setting.Still, Lee has struggled to consistently finish in the midfield as a pa ser, too often throwing off balance and struggling to adjust off his first read. His inconsistency in one offense seems to have hurt him, but I wouldnt be surprised if NFL teams consider his potential as a developmental Day 3 prospect based on his Senior Bowl play.MORE: Top performers from East-West, NFLPA games4. Kyle Lauletta, RichmondA three-year starter at Richmond, Lauletta was a lightly recruiting high school quarterback who, after playing some as a freshman, earned his starting role as a redshirt-sophomore. Despite four different offensive coordinators during his time in college, Lauletta has proven adaptable to multiple systems and has still shown next-level mental aptitude and proce sing. As a 6-2 pa ser, Lauletta has a well-built frame to stand tall and deliver throws with poise and adequate vision.Laulettahas a quick release andis able to generate maximum velocity from the pocket. While he doesnt po se s elite arm talent, his outstanding footwork has become a staple of his throwing succe s. Lauletta is one of the more capable pa sers out of the small schools in terms of mental aptitude and footwork development. He may earn substantial NFL support as a high Day 3 pick.3. Josh Allen, WyomingThe showstopper of the 2018 Senior Bowl, Josh Allen has earned comparisons to Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, and Carson Wentz over the last calendar year. Despite all the exaggerated fanfare, he does have one thing going for him: expectations.Allen is a remarkably gifted athlete with rare arm talent (not unlike Pat Mahomes a year ago). Thanks to having a full year behind the NFL hype machine, coupled with playing under the same coach who produced Carson Wentz at North Dakota State, Allen is expected to look like a first-round pa ser. One strong week in practice could solidify those grades. If he struggles, Allen could fall more towardChristian Hackenberg comparisons as a prospect.MORE: NFL Draft order, 1-302. Mike White, Western KentuckyMike White is a fifth-year senior who transferred from South Florida after a tumultuous earlycollege career. After a dominant 2016 season under Jeff Brohm, White and the entire Western Kentucky offense suffered from a lo s of big playmakers and Jerome Bettis Jersey a new offensive system that took White away from his strength: vertical pa sing.White showcases good arm strength (he could throw a 90-mph fastball in high school), which bails him out on mid-range and deeper routes, even when hes a bit over-aggre sive. In the pocket, he's swift in his drops and showslight feet and little wasted motion. White rushes his throws under pre sure, causing him to distribute off-platform and deliver the ball high. White is a tremendous leader whose biggest improvement has been extending plays with his legs.1. Baker Mayfield, OklahomaMayfield,a walk-on-turned-Heisman winner, has a 6-1 frame and thick lower body that allows him to fight through contact (and has prevented him from suffering major injuries). He's a great athlete who can create plays when the pocket breaks down, throwing accurate ballson bootlegs and rollouts. Pre-snap, he demonstrates complete understanding and control of the offense; during the play, heshows outstandingdecision-making ability.Mayfield is great at going through his progre sions, and won't tip his hand by staring down receivers. He has a concise delivery, lightning release and great velocity on his ball. He has outstanding arm strength and can hit any throw on the route tree with ease: Mayfield is great on short, intermediate and deep routes, though heoccasionally throws a touch behind receivers on cro sing routes.One negative on Mayfield is he will sometimes try Men's Jared Goff Game Jersey to do too much, forcing throws that lead to turnovers. He improved drastically in that area in2017despite losing Biletnikoff Award winner Dede Westbrook, but will also bailfrom clean pockets if he takeshits throughout the game. He compares in body type and play style to Ru sell Wilson, and is best suited for a vertical-oriented offense in which he can lean on his intermediate and deep accuracy.

The Dallas Cowboys expect to feed Ezekiel Elliott plenty in 2018 as they sort out the reworked pa sing game. "I'm all for it, you know what I mean?" Elliott said Thursday, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "A lot is asked from the running back for the Dallas Cowboys, a lot has been asked for me Men's Larry Fitzgerald Legend Jersey the past two seasons, and I think I've had some great strides this offseason getting ready to carry that workload this season." Through his first two seasons, Elliott has already been the workhorse. It's debatable whether it is even responsible in the long term to up his workload much Budda Baker Jersey more. In 10 games in 2017, Elliott averaged 24.2 carries per game. For comparison, the top two running backs, Le'Veon Bell and LeSean McCoy, earned 21.4 and 17.9 totes per tu sle, respectively. During his rookie campaign, Elliott led the NFL with 322 carries in 15 regular-season tilts, 21.5 per game. Perhaps the Cowboys leaned on Elliott more last season anticipating his six-game suspension. Had Elliott played a full David Johnson Jersey 16-game slate in 2017, he was on pace to carry the rock 387 times. The last running back to earn more than 330 carries in one season was DeMarco Murray's 392 with Dallas in 2014 -- it took a year for Murray's legs to recover from that workload. With the Cowboys receiver corps in flux, Dallas anticipates leaning on Zeke heavily, at least to open the season. For a tailback who has notoriously been out of shape early in training camps, hitting the ground running is key. RBs coach Gary Brown relayed what they told Elliott heading into training camp. "Come in and be in the best shape of Game Larry Fitzgerald Men's Jersey your life," Brown said. "Be ready to get a lot of carries early. It is going to be a situation where defenses are going Game Patrick Peterson Youth Jersey to try to stop us. They are going to try their best, but they are not going to be able to." Elliott has proven he can plow through stacked boxes rep after rep after rep. As the most stable element in an influx offense, the Cowboys need Zeke to eat plentifully in 2018.

The Bills are taking their time with Josh Allen, easing the rookie quarterback into the rotation behind AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman. The same can't be said for Buffalo's other first-round draft pick. When general manager Brandon Beane traded up for Tremaine Edmunds at No. 16 Mens Barry Sanders Blue Jersey overall, the Virginia Tech linebacker was immediately expected to fill a glaring hole as the focal point of Sean McDermott's defense. Edmunds has surpa sed expectations in spring practices, rarely leaving his middle-linebacker position during first-team reps. Appearing on Tuesday's Men's Barry Sanders Legend Jersey edition of Good Morning Football, second-year cornerback Tre'Davious White predicted that Edmunds would be "one of the best young linebackers in the league" by training camp this summer. "This is an alpha male here," White Game Calvin Johnson Light Blue Jersey said. "The guy goes sideline to sideline, he's a 4.4 [forty-yard dash] guy. He has tremendous brains, athleticism, his knowledge of the game is next to none. "Since the first day he's got here, man, he's commanded the huddle on the defensive side of the ball. You could tell by OTAs he's been getting tremendously comfortable in the playbook and every day Glover Quin Jersey he's getting better and better. By that first game, he's going to be knocking folks around." One of the NFL's youngest players at age 20, Edmunds projects as the beating heart of Buffalo's defense over the next half-decade. Given his unique physical gifts and a prime opportunity to make plays on a weekly basis, he will enter the season Darius Slay Jersey as a favorite for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.

Now that we've had time to revel in the magicof Justin Turner's NLCS walkoff homercoming on the anniversary of Kirk Gibson's famous World Series dinger, it's time to remember a le serbut low-key fantastic anniversary of another memorable playoff dinger in Chavez Ravine.But be warned, Dodgers fans you'll want to avert your eyes for this one.It was on this day in 1985 that the Cal Ripken Jr. 1988 Practice Orange Jersey Cardinals' Jack Clark crushed the Dodgers' dreams with a go-ahead, three-run homer in the ninth inning of Game Cal Ripken Jr. Cool Base Orange Jersey 6 of the NLCS off reliever Tom Niedenfuer to send St. Louis to the World Series.

MORE: Every MLB team's worst postseason memory, revisitedBeyond the dramatics of the situation Game 6, trailing in the ninth inning with two outs Clark's subdued troll job is something to behold. In the days before bat flips became all the rage, the slow trot was some players' preferred method to mock theirenemies.Watch the whole thing again:As soon as Clarkmakes contact, he knows it's gone. It was a monster bomb, after all.But he doesn't bat flip,he doesn't fist-pump, andhe doesn't give a Dave Henderson-esque leap of Jackie Robinson Jersey joy (though that actually hadn't happened yet). No, Clark just drops the bat, chews his gumand starts his trot with body language that says, "I knew that Baltimore Orioles Alternate Jerseys was going to happen andI can't believe you didn't see it coming."Not just that, but notice how long it takes Clark to get around the bases. It's like hewanted everyone in Dodger Stadium to watch so he couldbask in their pain. From Clark's contact with the ball to his contact with home plate was just shy of 30 seconds.MORE: Three takeaways from Dodgers' Game 2 winThe big blast capped a bad few days forNiedenfuer, who also gave up Ozzie Smith's "Go crazy, folks!" walkoff homer in Game 5.The blown save not only turned a 5-4 Dodgers lead into a 7-5 Cardinals win, it gave the Dodgers four straight lo ses after winning the first two games of the series the only time that's happened since Manny Machado Run Derby Navy Jersey the NLCS went to a best-of-seven format.With the 2017 Dodgers also enjoying a 2-0 series lead, a trip back to LA for Game 6 is probably something they'd like to avoid.

Give Tim Tebow credit: He's not afraid to chase big things.He's not afraid to set big goals. He's not afraid to put himself out there. He's not afraid to fail.MORE: Dispatches from Tebow's MLB tryoutWe should all Jackie Robinson Jersey be more like Tim Tebow.The former Heisman winner and NFL quarterback auditioned Tuesday for a bunch of major league teams in hopes of launching a career on the diamond. Yes, the odds are long, perhaps impo sible. But that doesn't mean it's not worth the effort.Whether born from an actual desire to play, or just a publicity stunt, Tebow's tryout shows the value of taking risks, the value of always trying to get better. If it works, the reward is great. If it doesn't, at least you gave it all you had. At least you know.Too often we don't try things because they seem too hard. We're afraid it Yankees Cool Base Navy Jersey won't work. We're afraid of embarra sment. So the potential of a big payoff takes a back seat to our fears.

The Chicago Bears don't plan to let Kyle Fuller get away -- not easily, at least. The team applied the transition tag to their talented young cornerback. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport first reported the development Men's Ryan Tannehill 2018 Game Jersey . Slapping the transition designation on Fuller means the Bears can match any offer the 26-year-old cover man might receive on the open market. The one- Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey year tag is worth $12.971 million, down $2 million from the $14.975 million value of the franchise tag. Fuller was an iffy candidate for the franchise label, but the move keeps a valuable defender under lock and key as new head coach Matt Nagy organizes his defense for 2018. With $60 million-plus in salary-cap space, Chicago Cameron Wake Jersey isn't about to let Fuller escape, giving the team a Bob Griese Jersey chance to work out a long-term deal over the next calendar year. Fuller has dealt with injuries in the past, but he came on strong last season, finishing as the league's 36th-ranked cornerback, per Pro Football Focus, while shining in one-on-one matchups down the stretch. With Prince Amukamara hitting the open market, Chicago remains a candidate to add additional help Mens Dan Marino White Jersey at corner both in free agency and the draft. Getting their 2014 first-rounder back goes a long way to shoring up this developing secondary.

Fans don't forget a botch-job like this on a primetime stage against the Cowboys, of all teams.Especially Eagles fans.A trip to the playoffs with a rookie QB will probably wipe the stink away, but until thenthe senstivity to every decision or comment Pederson makes will be heightened in the minds of most Philly fans.Even when you add the caveat of Pederson being a rookie head coach, his awful desicion-making in the fourth quarter Sunday night was a red flag forhis overall ability to judge a critical situation.

The Chicago Bears don't plan to let Kyle Fuller get away -- not easily, at least. The team applied the transition tag to their talented young cornerback. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport first reported the development Men's Ryan Tannehill 2018 Game Jersey . Slapping the transition designation on Fuller means the Bears can match any offer the 26-year-old cover man might receive on the open market. The one- Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey year tag is worth $12.971 million, down $2 million from the $14.975 million value of the franchise tag. Fuller was an iffy candidate for the franchise label, but the move keeps a valuable defender under lock and key as new head coach Matt Nagy organizes his defense for 2018. With $60 million-plus in salary-cap space, Chicago Cameron Wake Jersey isn't about to let Fuller escape, giving the team a Bob Griese Jersey chance to work out a long-term deal over the next calendar year. Fuller has dealt with injuries in the past, but he came on strong last season, finishing as the league's 36th-ranked cornerback, per Pro Football Focus, while shining in one-on-one matchups down the stretch. With Prince Amukamara hitting the open market, Chicago remains a candidate to add additional help Mens Dan Marino White Jersey at corner both in free agency and the draft. Getting their 2014 first-rounder back goes a long way to shoring up this developing secondary.

TORONTO As if this years postseason didnt already have enough of a Mets flavor to it, there will be an orange and blue tint to Game 4 of the American League Championship Series on Tuesday.The starting pitchers for the Blue Jays and Royals, R.A. Dickey and Chris Young, were teammates in New York in 2011 and 2012. The two right-handers could not be more different from the young fireballers the Mets use these days Dickey is a 40-year-old knuckleball practitioner, while the 36-year-old Youngs fastball clocks in at Bryce Harper Cool Base Red Jersey 87 mph, or 1 mph slower than a typical Noah Syndergaard changeup.MORE: Best photos from the ALCS| Murphy's hot streak unlikely to keep him in NYDickey has a more tangible connection to Syndergaard: the two were traded for each other in a seven-player deal in 2012 that also gave the Mets their starting catcher, Travis dArnaud.What a script that would be if I could face Syndergaard in Game 7, said Dickey, who had just won the National League Cy Young Award when the Mets shipped him to Toronto. Wouldnt that be something? But I really dont follow it, to be honest. I know that theyre doing well as a team, and Im sure those guys are a part of that. And the hope when you make a trade, like the trade that I was involved in, is that its good for both teams, thats the hope. And it certainly has been good for their team and it seems to be all right for our team right now. When I was a Brandon Kintzler Jersey Met, I loved being a Met. Im hoping that we play those guys in the World Series. It would certainly make for a great narrative.With the Royals having won the first two games of the ALCS, Young has a better chance of squaring off against his former team, and he has been paying a bit more attention to New York, particularly the exploits of second baseman Daniel Murphy, who in the past four games has homered off Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta a group with 11 All-Star appearances and four Cy Young Awards between them, and almost certainly a fifth after Greinke or Arrieta wins this year.Im so happy for him, Young said. Bryce Harper Jersey Hes a tremendous guy, tremendous person, first and foremost. I think one of the most underrated players in the game. And to watch him have the succe s hes having is just . . .Im so excited for him. It couldnt happen to a better guy.Young also to sed some verbal bouquets Dickeys way, saying he had great appreciation for his former teammate. Dickey called Young fun to be around. Its also worth noting that the two pitchers were not only together in New York, but with the Rangers as well, from 2004-05, the beginning of Youngs career and a couple of years into Dickeys.Both pitchers have been well traveled since Texas. Dickey has pitched for the Mariners, Twins, Mets and now Blue Jays, while Young went to the Padres, Mets and Mariners before joining the Royals. This is Dickeys first postseason and Youngs second, following a trip to the NL Division Series with the 2006 Padres.Comparing myself to nine years ago, I gue s at the time I thought there would be a lot more playoff opportunities going through it, Young said. My third full season in the major leagues that year, and it was just such a special time. Such a special day. I remember it was just a beautiful fall afternoon in St. Louis, and we were so excited. We were down 0-2 at that point, facing a great Cardinals lineup, similar to tomorrow. I had my Max Scherzer Jersey work cut out for me then, I have my work cut out for me now. Maybe I have lost a few miles an hour on the fastball, but I hope I can make up for it with a little bit more between the ears.A strong mind is part of the reason that Young, notably a former Princeton basketball star, has been able to be a major leaguer for more than a decade without dazzling stuff. Its also one of the reasons that he and Dickey, a rare active major leaguer to have written a book, connected so well.I constantly feel like Im fighting against a stereotype a lot, that major league baseball players, athletes in general, cant be well read, cant have thoughtful conversations, Dickey said. The dumb jock syndrome is what I call it. Chris is a pretty bright Washington Nationals Alternate Jerseys guy. We had some great conversations when we were together in New York. I enjoyed being around him, I enjoyed talking to him. Hes got a great mind. Its fun to be around guys like that who are well read and you can have deeper conversations with.There will be no time for conversations on Tuesday, only two former teammates trying to get to the World Series for the first time in their long and winding careers, looking to write a compelling chapter in a book that the other would be sure to read.
